=========A temperance meeting was held at the Windfall School house last Tuesday evening. The attendance was large, the house being filled to its utmost capacity, and with those who were anxious to help on the work of temperance reform. The meeting was addressed by Messrs. B. F. French and George A. Austin, of this place, in accordance with the appointment, after which Mr. James Hewitt was called upon, and responded with some very pertinent and, with a, entertaining remarks. At the close of the meeting upwards of seventy persons subscribed to cards presented, pledging total abstinence from the use of all intoxication liquors as a beverage, and to use all honorable means to encourage other to do the same.
