                                        I  would  not  enter  on  my   list of friends,
                                        Though graced with polished manners and fine sense,
                                        Yet  wanting   sensibility, the man
                                        Who   needlessly  sets foot  upon  a  worm.  -  Cowper.


Vol. 16.                                          Boston, June, 1883.                                                         No. 1.


  Our  Band of M1ercy Secretary reports upwards
  of four hundred Bands of Mercy now formed and
  forming, with about forty-two thousand members.
                     401
              A Good Day's W0ork.
  On  Sunday, Alay 13, Mr. Timmins formed the
following Bands of Mercy at South Boston:-
   Broadway  ITniversalist, about 300 members;
 Broadway Methodist Episcopal, about 250; Broad-
 way Baptist, about 100; and St. Vincent's Roman
 Catholie, over 700; making in all about 1350.

                 Silvee Badges.
   Experience has shown that our six-cent silver
 Undes will tarnish after a while.  To those who
 'refer silver to gilt, we would say that we are now
 having, with the six-cent quality, others manufac-
 tured, which cost ten cents, and, we are told,
 will wear bright, with cleaning, for years.

  At thi re(iest of Hev. Mr. Timmins we insert
the following. 'Ihe book will be soon sent gratu-
itoutl v to the officers of all Bands of Mercy now
formed:-
HIT   Al:Y AND Ilaw\TIl OF THE AMER'A N HANDoS

net dotes, and choice bit, of poetry and prose
  'tIount-, of the founders of English Bands, and
their work there, to'ietlher with many other piece,


of information too numerous to mention; also the
names  and officers af all American Bands of Mer-
cy thus far reported. It is a book that every mem-
ber of the Bands of Mercy should possess at once,
and a very suitable present to make to any one,
and that friends of the work everywhere should
circulate by hundreds and thousands to extend the
cause.  A labor of love on my part, through the
great kindness of Samuel E. SaNwyer, Esq., a Di-
rector, and Chairman of the Trustees of the Per-
manent  Fund of the Mass. Society P. C A., who
has generously given six hundred dollars towards
the printing, it will be sold under cost price to
members  of the Bands, and friends, for circula-
tion, at 124 cents each, or 8 copies for a dollar,
and so on in larger numbers. Copies, the gift of
Mr. Sawyer, will be sent free to the Presidents,
Secretaries, and Treasurers, of each Band, and it
is earnestly hoped that they will do their best to
get copies, by gifts to the infant departments,
and  sale to the others, into the possession of all
members.   As part of the first edition is already
engaged, orders will be filled as they come, and
we  desire friends to order early, in order to save
disappointment to them and to u;s, by having them
printed in time.
