TAKEN INTO THE
Yesterday was a most interesting
one for the Methodist church in this
city, as there were seventy-four taken
into the church, sixty-nine on proba
tion and five by letter from the form
er churches. A greater part of these
converts comes from the work of the
recent revival services conducted here
by Rev. Druliner, and there are still
others who will affiliate themselves
with the church in the next few weeks
as a result of the special work. The
meetings, in addition to securing many
new converts, has also stimulated the
interest of those who are already
members of the church and given them
an inspiration to greater efforts in
the cause of their church, as well as
proving very beneficial to other
churches of the city.
GEORGE SCHOEM AN
The home of our old friend, George
Schoeman, was the scene of a most
pleasant feathering yesterday, when
the relaties of the splendid old gen
tleman gathered to assist him in the
celebration of his eightieth birthday.
The occasion was one that will long be
very pleasantly remembered by those
who were most fortunate to be pres
ent, and the guest of honor was
showered with congratulations on hav
ing reached this ripe old age. The
relatives all came with well laden
baskets of the good things to eat, and
this was soon transformed into a feast
fit for a king and to which the twenty
six members of the party did ample
justice, and following the dinner the
day was spent in visiting and having a
general good time. At the close of
the day the guests departed home
ward, wishing that many more such
happy occasions may be given to them
to spend with this grand old gentle
man. Those who were present were:
John Schoeman and family, George
Schoeman, jr., and family, Henry
Schoeman and family, W. II. Hoover
and family, Fred Krecklow and fam
ily of Louisville, and W. G. Meising
er and family and Miss Helen Mei-
singer. The Journal joins with the
friends in wishing Mr. Schoeman
many more years of happiness.
