Doing a Good Work.
The Hev. Luther Moore, pastor of
the Christian church, who has charge
of tho young men's class of the Bible
school, is makintr irood as a Sunday
school teacher as well as being one of
the most popular ministers which
has been the lot of that denomination
to dame for some time although the
past recent history of the church,
! has been frought with good able
ministers. In the orginization of the
young men's class, Hev. Moore sug
gested an organized class, and the
name Loyal Sons was adopted, and
that they have been loval sons to him
is certain, for in their work
and attitude, they show it.
Tho class will give an elegant supper
at the Coates Hall in the near future,
which will bo a splendid testimonial of
their disposition to be faithful workers,
and with 'their natty. new
white uniforms will present a fine ap
pearance. We wish them success and
will win it.
