the future, as it has been in the past,
. to give all the local news, and our
correspondents will be sure to see
their communications in print each

As the change was made hurriedly
yesterday', we have not gotten everything

success. In front of the altar, and attached
to it, was a sickle, and underneath the sickle
mx sheaves of lipened grain, indicating that
the harvest oi the six years had been gatheied.
On the right of the altar was a shield indica

number six was maintained throughout to rep
the six years of his ministry. There
were six baskets of flowers, six lillies, and in
the centres of each of two square baskets of
