'FUN FOR LITTLE FOLKS
T"e two churches at this place
are making arrangements to have
entertainments at their respective
churches next week for the enjoy
ment and amusement of the little
As both Arches are preparing
programs for the same evening, we
would suggest that they have the
entertainments at different hours.
It is well enough to have some.
thing at the two churches, but it
would a"fford more pleasure to the
children of the town to be able to
attend, and enjoy both occasions.
And the enjoyment and amusement
of the little ones should be taken
into consideration above all things
We hope the two Sunday schools
will coino to some understanding
so that the children as well as the
old folks can see and enjoy the en
tertainment at both churches.
Let one of the churches begin at
say 0.30 o'clock, and the other at
8.o0. The evenings aro long, and
two hours is ample time for an or
dinary program and tho distribu
tion of gifts.
