Purl Biggs, who has been at the

near Chicago, for the past seven or
eight months, was discharged from
that camp last week and arrived
home a couple of day ago. He is
glad to be back again and to have
the opportunity of getting lo work

Mr. Biggs is a carpenter by trade and
it was in that line that he served

maybe a little more.

Last evening at a meeting of the
official hoard of the Christian
church in this city, a move was in
augerated, which in the end made
an increase in the salary of the
pastor some three hundred dollars.
Rev. Scott has proven a very
earnest and efficient worker, and
the church at this place appreciat
es the fact, and feel that as he had
not been receiving as much for his
services as they desired, made the
voluntary increase. without the
asking for the same by Mr. Scott.
At these tiimes. when everything
is high in price that one has to live
on. it is not possible for one to live
on what was formerly adequate.
Under the influence of the work of
Rev. Scott the church here is mak
ing good progress.

HAD ONE HUNDRED MEN OUT.
From Mi ndav's Dailv.
At the Presbyterian church yes
terday morning, by reason of a cam
paign which had been put on for a
larger attendance of men. there were
one hundred men in attendance at
the preaching service. That there
are so few men in attendance at the
various church services is a matter
of deep concern, and some of the
men of the Presbyterian church have
taken the matter in hand to see thft
there is a better attendance. True,
thev are in their campaign, round
ing up members of other churche.
but this should be done, as the men
folk as a general rule need rounding!
up about eviery Sunday.
