The groom is only 17 years of age;

AKRON MINISTERS RESIGN.
Will Remove to Other Fields
Tannar Notified Their
After the regular church services
yesterday afternoon Bev. E. B. Wil
iiard tendered the Consistory his res
ignation as pastor of the church, to
take effect January 1. The resigna
tion, which fully explains Bev. Wil
liard's reason for the step, is as fol
lows: To the Consistory of Grace Eeformed
Church, Dear Breteren:
I have come to one of the hardest
duties of all my life. It is my clear
conviction, after much prayer and
thought, that I ought to make a
change of pastorate, I herewith
tender my resignation as pastor of
Grace Beformed church, to take ef
fect Jan. 1, 1900. I ask you to join
wjth me in requesting Tuscarawas
chassis to dissolve the pastoral rela
tions now existing between us.
Li the midst of this ninth year of
my Akron pastorate", with the church
seemingly in a more prosperous con
dition than ever before, it is pecul
iarly hard to sever my connection
with Grace Beformed church. And,
I am sure you will recognize that
nothing but the deepest convictions
of duty could lead me to take this
For more than five years past we
have had afflictions in our home that
have taken much time and energy,
whlqh we would have been only too
glad to have given to church work.
We have struggled on, doing the
best we could, and God has prosper
ed and blessed the church, notwith
standing the various limitations,
which there have been on us, and
upon our pastorate. This has prac
tically worn me out, so that I feel
that a change is imperative for my
sake as well as for Mrs. Wiliiard. It
would be simply impossible for me
to give the time and service to the
church, which it must have to be
served aright by its pastor. I also
feel that I ought to give more time
and attention to myiamily, and that
I must get rest and relief for myself.
The only.'wax.tojdo this lis through a
ohange of pastorate unless I were toT"ec
temporarily give up the active min
istry. It is our hope and expecta
tion that, by taking the pastorate of
a much smaller church, we may still
continue in pastoral service, and re
gain health -and. strength, God, in
His kind providence, seems to have
brought to use just what we believe
we need at this time, and, hard as it
is to leave Grace Beformed church,
which we love more dearly than
ever, our duty seems clear.
With the most profound grati
tude in our hearts for all the co
operation and kindnesses we have re
ceived from you and the church, and
praying Ged's richest blessings upon
this dear church in all its future, I
remain as ever,
Your servant in Christ Jesus,
E. B. WlLLIAED,
Akron, O., Nov. 23, 1899.
Bev. E. B. Wiliiard informed the
Democrat this morning that he
will accept the pastorate of Salem's
Beformed church, at Canal Pulton,
14 miles from Akron. This church
has only 141 members. The pastoral
duties will be so light as to enable
Bev. Wiliiard to recoup his health ,
and give the attention due to his in
valid wife and at the same time look
well after the interests of the church.
Bev. A. E. Baichley was formerly
pastor of Salem's church, having
left it last September.
The members of Grace church and
Bev. Williard's many friends in
other church societies deplore the
causes that impell him to remove
from Akron,but they are wen pleased
that he has been enabled to locate in
a charge so near to the scene of his
present labors. During the years
Bev. Wiliiard has been in Akron our
people have learned to love him for
his kindly, companionable spirit, his
exemplary life, and his words and
acts of encouragement for his neigh
bors bpth within and without his
congregation, and they are glad to
know that the pleasant, every day
association will be permitted to con
Williard's successful .labors
as pastor of Grace Beformed church
were well reviewed in a recent issue
of the Beformed Herald, the official
journal of the church, as follows:
A number of interesting facts
were given in reference to the pres
ent pastorate, which began July 1,
1891. We have upon our ohuroh
roll today the names of 933 members,
Six hundred and sixty-four new
members have been received into
of Labor Rev. Wiliiard and Rev.
the church during the present pas
torate, 72 of these having united the
past year. When I became pastor
of this church on July 1, 1S91, the
roll of membership that came into
my bands embraced G45 names. In
other words, more new members
have been received within the past
eight years than the total member
ship amounted to eight years ago.
Two hundred and twenty-three
chi.dren have been baptized, 21 of
them the past year. Your pastor
has officiated at 259 funerals, 38 of
which came within the past year.
AIbo at 27G marriages, 43 of which
came within the past year. -
"While 638 new members have been
received, only 6G members have died
in the past eight years. With all
the children there are in the homes
of Grace Beformed church, only two
died among the homes of our church
the past year, and only 36 in the past

Our average attendance for the first
eight months of this year, including
35 Sundays, was a little over 581.
"The financial condition of the
church was never better than today.
Money is not the most important
thing in the church, but it is one of
the essential things. .It is a means
to an end. Every" month of this
year 1899 we have closed up the
month with a small balance in the
treasury. True, it was quite small
somtimes, but there was always
something to rejoice over. Last
week we closed up the (month of

anybody to stop giving for fear the

to the congregation at the services
Sunday morning, to take effect March
1. Bev. Tannar has been called to
the pastorate of the Central-Church
of Christ, Minneapolis, the largest
charge of the denomination in Min
nesota, and has accepted, believing
that the change to the northwestern
climate will be of benefit to his
health, which has not been of the
best for several years.
During Bev. Tannar's pastorate
the membership of the First Church
has been increased from 500 to 700
members. Within that time the
Wabash av. church and South Akron
mission have been organized, largely
through Bev. Tannar's labors, with
a combined membership of 300. Both
charges have growing Sunday
sohools. The enrollment of the
First Church Sunday school has
grown to 500.
Another tribute to Bev. Tannar's
labors is that the debt upon the
First Church, incurred by tho pur
chase of property and erection of its
substantial house of worship, has
been reduced from $14,000 to $4000.

The North End Athletic club de

by 600 people. The game progressed
slowly on account of the spectators
crowding upon the field in the way
of the players.
Close as was the final score, each
half waB a one sided contest. In the
first half Akron made a total of .11
points. The ses6nd half was Can
ton's and they scored two touch
downs for 10 points.
The last touchdown made by Can
ton was the result of steady massed
playing and the ball went over the
line with three men holding the
ball. For this no goal could be
kicked or the score might have been
In the first half Cassidy made a 50
yard run and Kauth went through

time. For the first Cassidy failed
