Y. M. C. A. Notes.
   On Friday evening next at 8 o'clock, the young men's meeting for prayer will be held in the Association parlor, and will be conducted by Eugene Price. All young men are cordially invited to be present and sustain the meeting.
   Rev. J. S. Robertson will address the young men at the rooms on Sunday afternoon next at 4 o'clock. Let all who possibly can be present.
   At a recent meeting of the board of directors a rule was unanimously adopted to the effect that no boys under the age of 16 years shall be allowed in the rooms after 8 o'clock in the evening. This order will be strictly enforced, so that parents whose boys are tardy in returning home at night must look for the excuse for such tardiness beyond the Association. While we are anxious to do all we can for boys and young men, yet the board feel that the place for young boys at night is at their own homes.
   On Wednesday evening next at 8 o'clock, Prof. D. S. Bardwell will give at the rooms the fifth lecture in the member's course, Subject—Strange animal life. This lecture will be illustrated with a stereoptican, and the fact that it is to be given by Prof. Bardwell is a guaranty that it will be a good one. Let all come. Free to members with friends, ladies and gentlemen.
