Sir, Before leaving our shores we consider it our duty to say to you a few words of thanks for the valuable services you have rendered us during your stay with us. In your work as a Teacher the only reason we have ever Imd for complaining is on this your removal; for vour continually kind and friendly disposition towards us, and your careful and parent-like attention to our children, have won for you the united all. ction of young and old. We have noticed with much pleasure the great interest you have aroused in the breasts of our children in their studies, especially at home, and can say in truth that it has made great improvement in them. But your abilities as a Teacher arc not only seen in the circle of your school ; there are instances outside as well. There are your music students many of whom it is now gratifying to listen to at their performances on the organ. There is also the band movement of which you were the founder and in which you have been so successful as to have pun based a few pieces of instruments; and we are! sure that bad you remained' with us much longer you' would have made an accomplishment of what you have started. We have occasionally known von as our acting Overture wo Step "Ciiojoso" "\\ inter Scenes" Commissioner and in evervinLadiesAmerican Sketch "Down South" Selection "Operatic Alhambra" stance you have proved your"I love the self a worthy officer -untiring 78.

Now you are about to leave us, many, many years too soon; yet you must. God bless and reward you for all the kindness you have done for us. Farewell to you arid your family. Wishing you all prosp iritj in your future' life We remain, Yours most thankfully Jas. N. Varence, Jas. O. V.ipnre, Win. ||. May CO" k, Prince McKinncv, f. L.

Dear Friends I have listened with grateful ears and a thankful heart to vour kind appn native address and I must confess I hat I would iii some r< ipei is i,,u e thought you flattering, wi re it not for this waiting throng, which, if I judge rightly has 1 onie to do me the honour of Baying "good bye," whic i oi itself, is suffil ienl to Dl< \ 1 your kind and friendly feelings. To speak of the many remarks you have so kindly made regarding myusefulness during my sojourn with you, I hold it unnecessary, sim e you yourselves are cognizant of the faith and good will in which those things wire done; but this will I say, that all those tilings to which you have pointed come within range of those duties which have ever been regarded and will always be regarded by me as obligatory, in the performance of which it behovi s every man to do his best, if be -Must prove himself faithful to his trusts. As you are no doubt aware every one of us has c-.icyMiu obligations to fulfil, arid f/t may justly be ranged imdei two heads namely obligations "Temporal" and "Spiritual," and the faithful performance of the one kind depends upon faithful keeping of the Other. You perhaps n d not be ; reminded of your spiritual duties, though you are just as likely to lose sight of one as you are to disregard the other; but for the time being, 11 wish to say a word or so about a matter, which though temporal in its aspect, points to things spiritual as well. Remember that you are citizens of one of those kmpu< s WIIK h are now at war—happy am I tosay, the greatest and most gloi ions or all as yet, so in older to maintain its dignity it is of the utmost importance that every citizen should do all that he can in i very possible direction. None of you have as yet been called upon to go to the front, but you have been and are now being called upon otherwise to share in the struggle. And in answering that call just think of the many men who are sacrifii ing their pleasures, their h o m es, left fathers, moth rs and everything that was and is most dear to them, and offered themselves voluntarily to face such fearful dangi r and death in order to ke< p up the renown of Merry England; and whatevi r yi u do, do it in the same spirit, remembering always that if we are to enjoy the victory we must alsobear the strife. Time does not permit me to say more about this suhject, but I hop, 1 have said enough tofieshen, al least the spirit of loyalty and patriotism in yo ', which will urge you to move am w in tins national crisis I now take the opportunity of bidding a grateful adieu to you all. I will always niiiemhcr^pMV' and I hope you will some times remember me.

Sir,
Before leaving our shores
we consider it our duty to say
to you a few words of thanks
for the valuable services you
have rendered us during your
stay with us.
In your work as a Teacher
the only reason we have ever
Imd for complaining is on
this your removal; for vour
continually kind and friendly
disposition towards us, and
your careful and parent-like
attention to our children,
have won for you the united
all. ction of young and old.
We have noticed with much
pleasure the great interest
you have aroused in the
breasts of our children in their
studies, especially at home,
and can say in truth that it
has made great improvement
in them. But your abilities
as a Teacher arc not only seen
in the circle of your school ;
there are instances outside as
well. There are your music
students many of whom it is
now gratifying to listen to at
their performances on the or-
gan.
There is also the band
movement of which you were
the founder and in which you
have been so successful as to
have pun based a few pieces
of instruments; and we are!
sure that bad you remained'
with us much longer you'
would have made an accom-
plishment of what you have
started.

Dear Friends
I have listened with grate-
ful ears and a thankful heart
to vour kind appn native ad-
dress and I must confess I hat
I would iii some r< ipei is i,,u e
thought you flattering, wi re
it not for this waiting throng,
which, if I judge rightly has
1 onie to do me the honour of
Baying "good bye," whic i oi
itself, is suffil ienl to Dl< \ 1
your kind and friendly feel-
ings.
To speak of the many re-
marks you have so kindly
made regarding myusefulness
during my sojourn with you,
I hold it unnecessary, sim e
you yourselves are cognizant
of the faith and good will in
which those things wire done;
but this will I say, that all
those tilings to which you
have pointed come within
range of those duties which
have ever been regarded and
will always be regarded by
me as obligatory, in the per-
formance of which it behovi s
every man to do his best, if
be -Must prove himself faith-
ful to his trusts.
As you are no doubt aware
every one of us has c-.icyMiu
obligations to fulfil, arid f/t
may justly be ranged imdei
two heads namely obligations
"Temporal" and "Spiritual,"
and the faithful performance
of the one kind depends upon
faithful keeping of the Other.
You perhaps n d not be
; reminded of your spiritual
duties, though you are just as
likely to lose sight of one as
you are to disregard the
other; but for the time being,
11 wish to say a word or so
about a matter, which though
temporal in its aspect, points
to things spiritual as well.
Remember that you are ci-
tizens of one of those kmpu< s
wIik h are now at warhap-
py am I tosay, the greatest
and most gloi ions or all as
yet, so in older to maintain
its dignity it is of the utmost
importance that every citizen
should do all that he can in
i very possible direction.
None of you have as yet
been called upon to go to the
front, but you have been and
are now being called upon
otherwise to share in the
struggle. And in answering
that call just think of the
many men who are sacrifii
ing their pleasures, their
h o m es, left fathers, moth rs
and everything that was and
is most dear to them, and of-
fered themselves voluntarily
to face such fearful dangi r
and death in order to ke< p up
the renown of Merry England;
and whatevi r yi u do, do it in
the same spirit, remembering
always that if we are to enjoy
the victory we must also- bear
the strife.
Time does not permit me
to say more about this suh-
ject, but I hop, 1 have said
enough tofieshen, al least the
spirit of loyalty and patrio-
tism in yo ', which will urge
you to move am w in tins
national crisis I now take the
opportunity of bidding a
grateful adieu to you all.
I will always niiiemhcr^pMV'
and I hope you will some
times remember me.


And wishing you every
success in life.
I am yours faithfully
