THE NEW YEAR

Saltcoats:
The New Year was ushered in quietly. On Saturday night the streets were thronged, but by midnight most of the people had gone home, and the few abroad were not particularly demonstrative. Sunday was marked by the usual quietness, the churches being also well attended.

In the evening Rev. D. Scott lectured in the Free Church on “The Past Year and its Lessons.”

Yesterday morning a free breakfast was given to the poor in the Albert Hall. About 200 persons attended, including a number of children, and all enjoyed the substantial fare kindly provided for them. Several gentlemen addressed the meeting, and a choir sang selections.

The children attending the Sabbath schools of the Establish and Free Churches received their customary New Year treats. Those attending the E.U. Church had a treat on Friday night, when a great number of prizes were distributed from a Christmas tree.

A dinner was held in the Mission Coast Home, the company including friends in the town and the others from a distance – Mr William Bryden, manager, presiding.

Yesterday the weather was mild in the early part of the day, but in the evening rain fell heavily.

The streets were crowded but there was no disorder.

THE DISTRESS IN THE COUNTRY

Saltcoats:
The soup kitchen still continues to be well patronised, and not a few are carrying considerable benefit from it on the three days a-week during on which it is open.

The committee have received £5 from the kirk-session of Ardrossan Parish Church to aid them in their good work, while from the farmers and merchants in the town they are also receiving valuable aid in the shape of vegetables, bread, beef, etc.
