The Denaby and Cadeby Prize Brass Band

The members and friends of the above and have made arrangements for a smoking concert to be held on Thursday night, October 31, in the Reresby Arms. Chairman, Mr full E. Vauxhall. Proceeds in aid of the uniform fund.

Wesleyan Church

The members of the above church intend holding a 10 days mission, commencing tomorrow (Sunday), to be conducted by Mr. H. H. Roberts, revivalist.

The Salvation Army also had a series of special services booked for the 28, 29, and 30th, to be conducted by envoy C. Holcroft, better known to the army as “musical Charlie” from Wytley, Staffs.

On Sunday, the police made a raid on the gamblers between Denaby and Conisborough. But so well are the watchers placed that the only result was the scattering of the various groups engaged in gambling.

Mr W. Lawrence, a deputy, of Denaby colliery, has had a couple of ribs broken in a singular manner. Whilst clambering over a fall of dirt he somehow or over tripped over his stick with the result that he fell and injured himself as stated above.

Our attention has been called of late to the conduct of some of the bus passengers between Mexborough and Denaby. Many women and children are obliged to walk between two places, because of the disgusting language and the amount of smoking that obtains in the vehicle provided for passengers. We think that the drivers of these vehicles could do a great deal towards stopping this nuisance, which emanates largely from those who have indulged not wisely, but too well.
