I’he stoiui of last Sabbath
tested the bravery and loyalty i
of the people, and as usual
those who faced its hardships
were not disappointed and found
the services specially helpful
and encouraging. The building
committee resumed its delibera
tions this week and are again
taking up the problems of plans
suitable to our needs, and the
means for raising the necessary
money. They will need all the
encouragement we can give them
in their work. Next Sabbath
morning the pastor will preach
on'‘Teachings peculiar to.leses’’
and in the evening “The Slough
of Despond, how we get into it,
and how to get out again, and
keep out.’’ Our Sabbath school
will bear still further improve
ment, as we need more of the
larger people to attend its ses
sion, and then more of our chil
dren to get the habit of attend
ing church service instead of
going home at II o’clock. Our
worship is public, our Seats are
all free, and our welcome is ex.
tended to rich and poor, friend
and stranger alike,

Dear parishioners: As the
lover and watchman of your
souls. 1 pray you to make this a
real Lent. Hate and avoid the
awful sham of pretending to
keep the sacred season with
“extraordinary acts and exer
cises of devotion," while secret
ly consulting your own conven
ience and Indulging your ordi
nary appetites of the llesh and
Lent is a season of humanity,
of self-denial, of renewed conse
cration. of faithful service. Try
to realize the spirit of (lie time
m all your religious duties and
observances. By real self Ue
nial and real devotion to Christ,
try to get nearer to God and
come into touch with His Holy
Spirit. Beware lest you receive
the grace of God in vain!
Be diligent in attending the
Lenten services, that y o u r
minds may be drawn more fre
quently to spiritual things. Do
not let small inconveniences
and obstacles hinder you from
coming to God's house. Let
self denial begin just here, that
it may spread over the whole
compass of thoughts and Life.
Make this Lent a real work
of devotion, so that with the
Lord you may have a holy and
happy L ister. Your Friend and

DIED AT SALEM
She Leaves a Husband And Two
The entire community of Salem
sustained a very sad shock when
news was received that Alice

a few days ago it came as a great
surprise and it is hard to realize
that she is no more. Alice Ad

Mrs. Kelly was converted to
i Christ twenty-four years ago and
was baptized by the Rev. W. N.
Potter, and united with the Chris
tian Church, of which she has
ever been a iaithful, true and con
sistent member. That the com
munity has sustained a great loss
is attested by the fact that she
was universally loved.
To the faithful husband and
sorrowing children will the loss
be irreparable and no finer tribute
could be (laid a wife than the
words of her husband, which is a
testimony of her faithfullness
“She has been a consistant Chris
tian and has done nothing to
j cause regret.”
She was a faithful worker in
j Church, IJible School and Society
and her presence will be sorely
j missed, but more than all. in the
I home, for she manifested a great

tier loss be more keenly felt, and
to the sorrowing husband and

BIG LAND DEAL
Mr Ulmer Pays $25,600 For The
What mav be regarded as the j
biggest land transaction ever
made in this vicinity occurred this
week, when Emanuel Ulmer pur
chased the W. G. Hummell farm
I consisting of one-hundred and
sixty acres, adjoining his farm,
tor twenty-five thousand six hun
dred dollars. Mr. Hummell gets
the use of the farm until March
of next year free of charge.
This is the largest price ever
paid for a farm in this vicinity,
but the place is well worth it, con
sidering the quality of the soil
and the improvements.
Mr. Ulmer now owns four hun
dred acres of the finest farming
I • • ^
land in Richardson county. He
has his original place of one-hund
red and sixty acres, an eighty on
the south of that, and the Hum
mel place, adjoining his farm on
‘ the west- This makes his place
| worth close to seventy-five thous
and dollars, and places him in the
list of large land holders of the
Mr. Hummell will farm another
year, and will then doubtless re
tire and enjoy the fruits of his
labors. —Dawson News Boy.

' There are those who contend
that for intellectual and imagin
utive people the reading of a
play is better than the acting.
The question is a debateable
nnc, and some distinguished
authorities have taken opposite
sides in the discussion. Doubt
less those who contend for the
acted drama have the advan
tage tor the simple reason that
there are so few opportunities
to hear a play well read, Such
an opportunity was presented
last evening by S. H. Clark. He
is a distinguished reader and
1 teacher. He is a man of scholar
ly attainments and artistic dis
crimination, tie is surprising
ly successful in his interpreta
tion of the several characters,
and also in his presentation of
the story. He is modest in his
personations, and yet by skilful
modulations of voice -or rather
from character conceptions that
make their own modulations -
he detines his people and pres
ents the temperamental con
trasts, the varying motives and
the poetic beauties of the play,
in such a way as to hold even
an audience that would not be
classed as a gathering of stu
dents.’’ Kansas City Journal.
“Ma s New Husband
Do you want to see the tunni
est lesson ever given a boy by
his teacher? Do you want to
see the most old-fashioned and
cunning boy that ever took a
lesson from a teacher? Then do
not fail to see the performance
of “Mas New Husband" at the
Gehling Theater. Thursday eve
ning. Feb. 25, the only chance
that will be offered to >ee it in
this city. At tirst sight these
questions may seem irrelevant,
but when you are let into the!
secret that the boy in question]
is really a full grown man in
boy’s clothes, you will begin'to
see the humorous side of the
scene. The bouts between these
two are brimful of njirtii and
they form only a small portion
of the lud e: ous happenings that:
occur during the performance of
this entertaining musical farce.
