Cadbury Tent, No. 134.—A very successful tea and entertainment in connection with this Tent was held at the Temperance Hall, Banbury, on Wednesday, March 5th. Mr. W. Bayliss, secretary of the Banbury Temperance Society, and a leading trades-man of the town, presided, and referred to the address of the Right Hon. Mr. Forster at Bradford, and drew favourable comparisons between the Rechabite Order and other friendly societies. An excellent programme was then given to an attentive and appreciative audience, the room being well filled. An address on the principles of Rechabitism was given by Bro. Good ridge, D C R. Several jubilee songs were well rendered by Miss Holland, Mrs. Kench, Mrs. Lintolt, and Messrs. Good ridge and Fleet. This was the first public meeting in connection with the Tent; but in consequence of its great success, it is deemed desirable to hold many meetings of a similar character.
