First Christmas In the New
M. E. Church
The Christmas time just passed,
will long be remembered by a mul
titude of people old und young
connected with the Methodist
Episcopal church of Logan.
To 'Begin w.th, the Sunday
school entertainment on Christmas
eve, was a most enjoyablo occasion
especially so far as tho little ones
were concerned. The large Sun
day school auditorium was crowd
ed to the doors. Tho committee
on decoration had carefully and
artfully done their work. Ever
greens, bunting, ornaments and
Christmas bells were beautifully
and tastefully arranged, which
was moat pleasing to the eye and
Inspiring to look "rcr. The pro
gram was pronounced by nil at
one of the highest class ever ren
dered by Sunday school children
in the city. Mr. and Mrs. Wor
rel, Supt. and Mrs. Grady, Mrs.
Frank Ackers, Misses Lulu Bright,
Minnie Moore and Bertha Gano, at
committto on program, have oer
taiuly richly earned the universal
and hearty appreciation of the
parents and entire congregation
through their untiring zeal in so
carefully and skillfully urranginp
the material for tho program and
in training tho children. The
children who had a part in tin
program, deserve a word of com
mendation; also they certainly ac
quitted themselves creditubly and
by treir renditions of music, reci
tations and dialogues undoubtedly
convinced tho large audience that
tho sohool is endowed with more
than ordinary intellectual and niu
sical ability. This Sunday school
has undoubtedly an inspiring fu
ture. But few Sunday school,
have a moro competent and sub
stantial board of officers and
teachers. This added to the
splendid equipment of class rooms
now about ready for use, ought
very soon to bring the enrollment
up to eight hundred or one thous
and. On Sunday morning tho pastor
preached fiom John 12 32 on the
subject, "Jesus and tho Elevation
of tho Raoes of Mankind."
In the ovoning at six o'clock,
tho lovo feast services wore well
attended and good fellowship uud
spirituality made the service u
real blessing to all, At soven o'
clock, Dr. J. C. Arbuokle preached
ono of his mo3t powerful and con
vincing sermons Tho communion
service was very irapressivo und
On Monday night, tho District
Superintendent conducted tho first
Quarterly Conference for this con
ference year. A goodly numbor
of tho official board was present.
Tho usual business was transact
ed. The reports from the various
departments of the church woro
oncournging. The financial roport
niudo by tho treiiBuror for the
quarter, covering incidentals, sal
ury, etc, was the greatest in the
history of the ohuroh, showing all
curront expousos paid in full with
over one hundred dollars in the.

The pastor of the Methodist
Episcopal church of Logan finds
himself under many and real ob

bers of the official board and con
gregation for the numerous and
substantial demonstrations of
their regards, their sympathy
and their fellowship. Almost
eyerytime tho door bell has rung
for some time, something has hap
pened at the parsonage. About
the first intimation th it the pas
tor had that Christmas was com
ing, tho bell rang, and upon an
swering the call, there stood a lit
tlo girl with a basket filled with
spare ribs and sausage. Then a
good brothor brought some more
of the same good old corn-fed,
home-grown sort, the kind that
makes your mouth water and that
calls for buckwheat cakes. Just
imagine a Methodist preacher liv
ing on spare ribs, sausage and
buckwheat cakes Well, we con
fess it has not always been that
way; but it happened that way at
the parsonage in Logan this yoar,
and we are living in happiness.
Then the door bell rang every once
in n while, but tho day before
Christmas well, the pastor was
out most all day, but the mistress
of the house had her hands full;
