As has been the custom of the
membership of the Christian church
of this city on New Year's day, they
met at the hr.il of the Modern Wood
men of America with well filled baskets-yesterday,
in spite of the H. C.
of L. and proceeded 'to, have one of
the most social and enjoyable times
ever participated in before, eating
their dinner in common together af
ter which they looked after the
transaction of business matters, lis
tened to reports and elected ollicers
for the coming year.
The dinner was called just before
noon, but was not concluded until
nearlv throe o'clock when the last
of the hungry multitude had finished
partaking of this sumptuous noon
day repast. Alter the ioyai oi k-
ers had finished gathering up the
fragments and had gotten things
straightened up once more, all re
paired to the assembly room, where
with P. II. Ilihn as clerk and Oliver
C. Hudson chairman of the official
board, the meeting was called to or
der to hear the reports of the var
ious auxiliaries of the church. Fiifct

made their report through their sec

this report it waa gleaned that after
having don? their year's work, and
paying a goodly sum into the coffers
of the church proper, they now have
left on hand a larger balance than
existed a year ago. Her report of
the work accomplished was most
gratifying to th? v. emeers.
Following this came the reports
of the various officers of the church
proper, the first being that of the
clerk of the board, who also read
the report of the treasurer, dealing
with the financial problems, which
usually prove to be the one big bug
bear in church circles. This report.
showed financial conditions with the
church about the ratue as a year ago.

To reach the resort it is necessary
to pass this port. Vihn opposite
this place it was discovered that the
gasoline supply was insufficient to
complete the trip, and Young went
ashore, leaving Morgan on board the
launch. It was while walking along
the beach, it is thought, that Young
disappeared. To reach here from the
point where he landed he would have
to pass what is known as Big Lagoon.

Vrsterdsiv -afternoon at 2:30 a
number of friends and old acquaint-1

Church. in attendance at the funeral
services of the late Clement Chapman
the youngest son of Mrs. Agnes Chap
man of Lincoln. The remains, ac
companied by the bereaved mother
brother Joe. sister Mrs. Helen Koontz
and Mr. Walter Stempel, arrived in
this city on the noon train. The
flower laden casket was conveyed to
the Presbyterian church, where the
remains laid in state until the fun
eral hour and during the hour of
1:30 and2:00 friends were permitted
to take a farewell view of their de
parted friend. The funeral services
were held at 2:30. A choir, com
posd of Miss Mathilde Vallerv Mrs.
G. L. Farley; Messrs. Lynn. .Minor
and G. L. Farley sang favorite
hymns, while Mrs. Henry -F. Goos
presided at the organ. Rev. II. G
McClusky spoke words of comfort to
the sorrowing ones and said that we
made various plans for our future
welfare, but sometimes God would
have other and better plans and
would interfere with our plans and
perhaps take pome of our loved ones
to his home. We are then prone to
feel discouraged but God knows. what
are the best plans, and what he does
for the best. The remains were
then conveyed to Oak. Hill cemetery,
