The Christmas , program

As we writo this, the snow storm
does not look auspicious, but four
days' time changes a lot of things,
and by Friday night roads will be
broken and we can get about very
well. We will have a good house
full. Our Christmas services wore well
attended, and the spirit of theexer
cises was the remark of a number ot
And if wo aro to have the pleasure
from our worship which wotought to
have, we ought to enter into it with
a good spirit A lot of our Christ
mas pleasure is because we are get
ting ready for it for a long time.
We aro getting presents readyv we
anticipate our getting together for
days if not weeks, we have the whole
season in mind and always look on
it as a pleasant one. And we always
have an enjoyable time. It is tho
same way with the circus. The big

Jesus says, "The sons of this gen
oration aro wiser than the sons of
light." Christian people can learn
a thing from world serveis in this.
If we looked forward to the pleas
ures of worship with tho expectation
of enjoying it we would profit more
uy it than wo do. jr we give our
selves to any good thing whole-heartedly
wo will find pleasurl" "in it, and
what is better than the worship
God? We should not withhold our
selves from this when wo are at
tending it, but enter gladly into tho
service. Solomon says thpt a joyful
heart doeth good like a medicine.
No place will a joyful heart give you
better or quicker returns than at
divine worship. Go to church and
join heartily in tho singing and re
sponses, open your heart to the pray
ers and the reading, listi-n nttent
ively to tho sermon and see if you do
not want to go again. God is in his
house to receive you and ble3s.
JL E. Church Notes
Rev. S. A. Draise, Pastor
In responso to the invitation about
eighty men were present at the han
.quet on Friday evening. It was an
occasion of real fellowship and good
feeling. All day the ladies had buun
busy preparing the dinner. At six
o'clock Brown's orchestra, the du
lightful family of musicians, began
rendering several beautiful selections
which wore appreciated in a way that
indicated thoy were being thoroughly
enjoyed. And they did not run out
cordial greetings and
throughout the New
if selections for encores. Mr. Brown.
vhen asked If the children would Win. M,cAfeo will act as leader of

young men waited table in a way that
jiiggested they wero not new at the
business. When all were full they
were allowed to make themselves easy
in their chairs while a number of
addresses should be given.
Following u few Introductory re
marks by the (pastor, Rev. E. M. Fur
man, Miperintendant of Norfolk dis
trict, was introduced as toast-master
for tho evening. In an enjoyable
manner ho presided, interspersing
the program with interesting and
amusing incidents of his associations
The first one called upon for n
toast was Mr. Wm. Tackaborry, of
Sioux City, who responded in an able
manner, his subject being, "The Busi
ness Man and the Church."
Following his very interesting dis
cussion of tho subject, Rev. Earl
Hoon, pastor of First M. E. church,
Sioux City, was called upon tospeaK
and announced his subject, "Wanted,
a Man." In a very forceful manner
ho set forth tho responsibility of
men in all tho affairs of life, and
especially as It pertains to the moral
and religious conditions of the com
munity and state. His address was
practicable, and none could question
the truth of all the statements he

There followed a brief statement of
tho financial condition of the base

called to tho changed plan and the
added expense, nnd an opportunity
was given for nny who wished to
supplement their former subscrip
tions or make n new one for the
fund. In about ten minutes $800
was subscribed. This almost clears
the indebtedness, lacking only $200.
