Transcription of article


Mr. Savory, who erected, the cross that was thrown down and broken on Sunday, May 1st, has had it repaired and re-erected. He has done so "feeling sure that the damage could only have been caused by some accident or by children in thoughtless play, and that no outrage was intended." It is quite certain that the cross could not have been blown down, but must have been pushed over, either intentionally or otherwise by some person or persons, and Mr. Savory has taken the most charitable view of the case. We can only add that, if Mr. Savory is right in his conjecture, it is a pity that those who were the cause of injury to the cross have not had the courage to come forward, and thus, perhaps, clear others who may be the objects of undeserved suspicion.
