bers and visilors had the pleasure
of hearing a very able address by
Attorney A. h. Tidd on the sub
ject, "The Transliguralioii." Mr.
Tidd is a very close student of the
bible and has devoted much time
lo the study of Ihe application of
Ihe teachings and statements, and
his address yesterday was a very
pleasing treat to those fortunate
enough lo attend the meeting.
.Mr.. Tidd presented the matter in
a manner different from that
usually given by speakers along
religious lines, and his talk was
a splendid intellectual treat, delv
ing as he did inlo the great mys
teries of the infinite mind and
comparing Ihe human mind and
soul to that of the spiritual.
There was a large al tendance at
tin.' meeting, which was one of the
most successful that has been
held by the Brotherhood, although
the movement is beginning to at
tract Ihe men members of the
congregation to Ihe possibilities
of the organization.
