The President urged increased activity in obtaining new members, and wished all the compliments of the season. The meeting concluded with prayer by the President. The thirty-second annual report was as follows: Many and varied efforts have been made during the year to carry out the turposes of the Association, and full details of its cnief functions having already appeared it is not now necessary to do more than give a passing summary of events. The Sunday Morning Prayer Meeting and Friday Evening Bible Class, though not largely attended, are appreciated and helpful. The Sunday Afternoon Bible Class has made most satisfactory progress, and of late has shewn a marked improvement in the number attending. It has been a pleasure to welcome several strangers who have assisted in making the class more useful and attractive. Thanks are due to our able teacher for his devotion and regular attendance. The class has done good service in the past, and, under God's blessing we hope it will do even more in the future. Young Men's Monday night meeting. In reviewing this weekly meeting we gladly record it has been richly blessed by God, repeated instances having come before us of young men who have been cheered and strengthened by it. The attendance has also been good. Open air meetings have been held, both in Win- ter and Summer, at the bottom of Wind-street, and we believe have been helpful to numbers of young men who stand round, and who seem to attend no place of worship. In connection with the week of prayer, some twenty-six sermons were preached in various chnrches, and special meetings were held in our rooms. Mr. Henry Thorne, evangelist, conducted two meetings in May last, and delivered his lecture. From the Stage to the Cross," to a crowded audience. Several social gatherings, together with the ever popular Easter-Monday breakfast, have pro- moted good fellowship and friendly intercourse. Employment has been found for several young men, while others have received letters of intro- duction to associations at Abergavenny. Cardiff, Cheltenham, Capetown, London, Walsall. The reading room is well appreciated, and much more use is made of the lending library since the issue of a catalogue of the many excellent books available for home reading. Our Literary and Debating Society held some good meetings. Public lectures were given in the Albert Hall by Messrs. Chas. Neufeld, Ian Maclaren and Herbert Jones, while a series of Health Talks by Drs. D. E. Evans, H. A. Latimer, E. Le Cronier Lancaster and Rhys Davies were both useful and interesting. The "Association Record" and "Pass-It-On" have continued their useful course. The Gymnasium continues to be popular with many of our members, and those who attend regularly greatly benefit by means of this exercise. In some instances the improvement in physique is very marked. We are pleased to notice a more intelligent interest taken in the work, and greater attention given to exercises which are truly beneficial in preference to those tricks which are mainly spectacular. The Summer Camp at Parkmill and the Swim- ming Club alike afforded pleasant pastime to many. The approximate number of members and Associates is 368, a slight increase on last year, and in addition, a large number of friends sub- scribe to our funds. Finance.—The statement of accounts duly audited, shews that all expenses have been met. The Committee gratefully recognise the labours of their various hon. secretaries, and the many acts of kindness shewn by various ftiends. Above all, they thank God for His gracious blessing, and pray it may ever continue to encourage and cheer them.
