TEMPERANCE LECTURE AT PARTON SCHOOLS.

Mr. A. HOULDERSHAW, lecturer for the North of England Temperance League,
attended the Boy's School, Parton, on Tuesday, and gave to the scholars a most
interesting lesson on the effects of alcohol on the blood, with practical
illustrations and experiments. Both children and teachers were highly interested of
which evidence was given by a hearty round of applause. The girls' school was
also visited, and the first lesson given, which was equally pleasing to both
teacher and scholars. The boy's lesson was the third of the series. Mr
HOULDERSHAW lectured in the Liberal Hall in the evening to a nice audience, his
subject being, "The effects of alcohol on the human *****". Mr SIMPSON of
Maryport presided.
