THE NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY, AUGUST 9, 1907.
1 CHURCH SEATS
New Styles Cheap and Endurable.
Comfort and Beauty Combined.
UNTIL the large number of people who are never seen in churches can be assured that every
church in this vicinity will have a set of seats that will be clean, comfortable and inviting,
they will not be seen inside a church. Many churches will supply this long-felt want if
they could do so at prices and on terms within their reach, thus increasing their attendance, draw
ing on the unusually large number of people who do not attend the churches, and which would evi
dently result in every service being crowded. A barrier has been in the way in the form of high
prices, shoddy goods and no terms. This barrier has been removed by the Church Supply Depart
ment of the National Baptist Publishing Board, which has presented the new style church seat (its
own creation and its own make). These seats are constructed of the best grade of hardwood.
They are built by the best skilled mechanics and have proven to bs the most comfortable ever of
fered at the prices. The terms on which they can be purchased are so easy that any church, re
gardless of its financial condilicn. can secure a set of these by a small cash payment, have the setts
installed and pay the remainder in monthly or quarterly payments to suit their own financial con
dition. How long, with such inviting inducements offered, will it be, before every church in and
about Nashville will get a set of seats? References can be given to the Nashville churches by re
ferring them to Rev. L. Kirkpatrick, pastor of the St. John Baptist Church, Pearl St.; Rev. J. L
Harding, pastor of the North Third Avenue Baptist Church, both of whom h-ive seated with new
style church seats; Rev. G. 1!. Taylor, pastor of the Second Baptist Church, corner Stevens and De
luge Sts.; Rev. Wm. Ilaynes, pastor of Sylvan Street Church, Shelby Avenue, who have installed the
- church pews. & J J . J
