He was a constant attendant at the services in the church, of which he was for over six years warden.

Services in connection with the Twentieth Century Pledge Signing Crnsade were held in the Albany, Bethesda, and tabernacle Chapels on Sunday last, and were addressed by the organiser, Rev. William Mottram, of London. ihe services were largely attended, particularly the united service in Bethesda in the afternoon, when Revs; O. D. Campbell, Owen Jacobs, W. Mendus, and F. 1\. Colborne occupied seats on the platform. Rev. Mr Mottram spoke in a simple and impressive style, which strongly appealed to his youthful hearers. He drove home morals to their minds by affecting stories, and his address was listened to with the greatest interest. He took occasion to warn boys, not only against touching alcohol, which "defaced the beauty of the human countenance, but also against smoking. Boys should never smoke till they were 21. Three pipes a day might not hurt a full grown man, but the smoking of cigarettes and tobacco seriously inj ured the brain powers of a boy. Thank God, girls were as yet pretty safe on that score, but boys should buy sweets and chocolates, which would not hurt them, instead of cigarettes which would." Another service was held in the evening, after which Rev. Mr Mottram addressed a large open-air gathering in Salutation Square, and made a powerful appeal in the cause of total abstinence. Services are being held by Mr Mottram during the week i n the country districts.
