Beautiful Christmas Exercises
at Trenton Presbyterian
?Christmas was quite a happy day
for the Presbyterian church at Tren
ton, An unusually large crowd was
present at Sunday school despite the
threatening weather. At eleven
o'clock, the usual hour for worship,
the splendid young pastor delivered a
magnificent Christmas sermon, read
ing the ninth chapter of Isaiah and
using a clause of the sixth verse;
"His name shall'be called Wonder

o'clock, the doors were thrown open

the occasion. The pubpit was divested
of its regular furnishings and trans

room. There was the real built-in
brick chimney and mantel with hand

First on the program was a read
ing, "A Christmas Story," in which
Miss Sabe Miller touchingly pictured,
with tenderness and pathos, the birth
of "The Prince of Peace." Following
this came a beautiful drill by the in
fant and primary classes of the
Sunday school, while the choir softly
sang "Beautiful Star of Bethlehem."
Then lovely recitations by little E.
L., Vera, Elizabeth and Imogen
Posey. Fourth on the program was a
wonderfully sweet violin solo by
Miss Sabe Miller, accompanied on the
organ by Mrs. P. B. Wise. And last,
the exquisite pageant, "The Day's
Come," in which Mr. B; T. Horde was
"The Watchman," Miss Maude Bet

B. Posey "America" and Mrs. S. H.
Manget "The Word of Prophecy."
each ideally suited to his and her
part, and splendidly driving home the
great moral teaching of the pageant.
Much appreciation and many

of the program.

youngest member <if the Sunday
