ship of 10 charter members, and trac
ed. Its varied and Interesting history
through 75 years. Of the original
charter members there are, of course.
none living, but the church has in its
membership the grandson, great-granddaughter
pf a charter member, William Dick
son. These are James K. Dickson,
Mrs. Ruth Dtrkson-McCartney, and
her little daughter. The history of the

tofore been related In detail in The

told of a number of incldeuts that have
not been noted. Among these was the
beginning of a prize bible contest start
ed by C. A. Spring, superintendent of

A bible was offered u a prise to chil
dren learning the catechism, and in
one month the .membership of the
school was Increased from SO to ISO,
and 10 bibles were given as prises.
The plan was taken up by the church
at large, the presbytery and synod, and
$25,000 was appropriated for the fund
to procure prices, of which 8,000 were
given. The work spread into .all parts
of the country and Into Canada until
100,000 children were studying the cat
echism and 25,000 prise bibles were
RELATES HISTORY OP BELL
He also told of the placing of the I
old bell In the church on Seoond ave
nue. It has cast m It "Meenley Bell
company. Troy, N. T. 1855." and It
was raised to its place by means of
pulleys drawn by a yoke of oxen. Af
ter it had been placed and thought se
cure, it suddenly crashed to the base
ment of the church. It was undamaged
and had to again be lifted by the yoke
oxen. The bell remained In the
tower of the old church nntll it wu
razed and the bell was removed to the
new church last pring. The pipe or
gan of the church was placed in the
old church. 1859-1866, as a memorial
by P. L. Cable. This was In service
until the demolishment of the church
by tornado Sept 18, 1874. It was re
paired and was then used nntll the
building was razed In April, 1910. In
the new organ In the.present church
the pipes in the west arch are from
the old organ and several of the large
stops of the organ are in the present
instrument. So the history continued
with interesting Incidents in connec
tion with the church. .
