A Large Crowd Attended the Services
at The Baptist Church
The Thanksgiving services were
held in the Baptist Church, and
proved the experiment of having
such services in the* evening, a suc
cess, as many were turned away,un
able to get in.
The program in its entirety was
interesting, beginning with “ The
Pilgrims Chorus" on the organ, by
Miss Banks.
The invocation by Kev. Reichel
followed; when the mens' double
quartet, composed of leading singers
from the different churches, gave a
very appropriate song of praise.
It is to be regretted that our men
do not come together oftener and
exercise their talent for the pleasure
of the public.
The scripture reading was given
by Mrs. L. C. Manger of the Meth
odist Church.
The Woman’s Chorus was then
heard in the 5th Psalm "Hear, O
Lord”—the music of which is the
exact music of Chopin’s 13th pre
lude. The music is exquisite in Its
self, having an obligato that is sung
in such a manner as to seem to come
from a distance, a veritable cry to
the Lord, while the body of the chor
us keep calling upon the Lord to
hear their cry.
The prayer of the evening was
made by Rev. R. Cooper Bailey, and
the offertory was a violin solo by
Miss Alice Cleaver.
The sermon by Rev. Nanninga was
thoroughly appreciated. It was a
plain, simple, straightforward talk
on the uses and abuses of Thanks
giving services, and was listened
to with devout attention. After a
second praise song by the quartet,
the benediction was pronounced by
Mrs. F. Ellsworth Day of the
Christian Church, closing an. unusu
al but helpful service.
Elaborate Thanksgiving Dinner At
The New National.
Landlord Spence, of the New Na
tional, certainly made a reputation
for his hostelry last Thursday, in
the way he served his guests at
Thanksgiving dinner.
The menu for the occasion would
compare favorably with a like occa
sion at any metropolitan hotel, and
those who were fortunate enough to
partake of Landlord Spence’s fare
upon that occasion, were loud in
their praise of the feast.
From the traveling men, as well
as the "home folks’’ came many
compliments that caused the chef,
the waiters, and Mr. Spence to smile
with satisfaction.

their ballots for or against the issuance of bonds, in the
sum of $12,500, this amount being pledged by the

been idle they have made good. Thousands of dollars

yards that scarcely have an equal in the state, both from
point of size and the substantial character.
The ties are being placed, the steel laid, and the
work upon the round house is soon to commence the

voters of Falls City to do likewise vote the bonds—to

vote as we talked last July LET’S MAKE GOOD.
