Corner-Stone Laid at Huntsville
Over $400 Raised.
The corner stone of the Second
Baptist church of Huntsville was
laid Sunday, October 25th with im
posing ceremonies by Finney Ma
sonic lodge of Huntsville and vis
iting lodges from Moberly and
Salisbury, Prof. i.. R. Chinn, of
Glasgow, Grand Master of the Ma
Bonio Order of Missouri and its
jurisdictions, acting as master of
ceremonies during the day. A
large crowd of visitors from sur

witness the exercises as well as
many from the immediate country

o'clock a. in., services were held in
the county court house and Rev.
G. C. Chinn, pastor, preached to a
large congregation. At 2 p.m. the
crowd reassembled at the court
house and listened to an address of
welcome by Mayor Wm. Hethman
and a masterly response by Grand
Master Chinn. A line of march
was then formed in front of the
courthouse, by the Masonic order,
headed by the Huntsville band and
followed by a large crowd they
moved to the foundation now un
der construction for the new church
where the corner stone was laid.
Four hundred and twenty-three
dollars was realized for the day.
Rev. G. C. Chinn, pastor of the
church, has been in Huntsville only
one year and during that time he
has raised about $1,200 to be ap
plied to the new church, which is
now being built.
