CLERGYNIANIS VIEWS ON EAT LY MARRIAGES. a Speaking at a Foresters' dinner at Weobley, Herefordshire, on Thursday evening, the Rev. G. H. Davenpwt said in this uncertain life it surely should be the duty of men to provide for the future, for the simple reason that they did not know what the future would bring forth. He knew it was a most desirable thing to get young men to join their ranks, but might he asked them not to be ,:11 a hurry to marry. (Laughter.) He heard of a young ma,n-he could hardly call him a young man, he was but nineteen—who had only one bed, one table, and one chair. He got tngaged, and was de- termined to be married. (Laughter.) When he caBle to count the shilling." in his pocket, he found he had .not the 5s. for the parson. —(laugliW)—and consequently he had to wait until his next pay day to get the money. (Re- newed laughter.) Ho would ask them what corld be the prospects before anyone like that.? Of course, his immediate prospects were his children. (Laught-ir.) If people did mury, of course, that was one of the consequences, (Loud laughter.) He w.-li.vd the Order of Foresters would make ,'(' me rule such as this, that no one should liiL-ny before he was 25—(hear, hear)—and then try and restrict his family to the number of five—three boys and two girl- (Loud laught"r.) He said two girls because, he believed, the ladies were already in the majority. (Loud laugtvter.) If any man was guilty of having twins. M should fino him if lie belonged to the Ancient Order of Foresters. (Renewed laughter.) He saw they took those woids of his on the want of forethought very good naturedly, but he really did think that a man ought to get a little money together and get a snice house before marrying; then he eould not do letter than get a good wife. (Loud sipplpuse.) He hoped nothing he had said would prevent members joining the club.
