Bell and Windows Dedicated.
A rarely beautiful and Impressive ser
vice was held in Union church Sunday
when the memorial bell and windows
recently placed In the edifice were dedi
cated. The bell was given In memory
of Mrs. Hattle Slmonds by the women
of Vernon, as an evidence of their grat
itude for her beneficent remembrance to
Union church. On the wall of the porch,
beneath the belfry, is a handsome
bronze tablet placed there by Dr. and
Mrs. N. P. Wood of Northfleld, Mass.,
telling In a few appropriate words
these facts for the knowledge of future

generations. unucr this tablet on a
small table, was a bowl of panslcs and
other blossoms. The large window back
of the pulpit was given In loving mem
ory of Tyler Johnson and his wife, Jcn
nette Johnson, by their daughter. Mrs.
II. A. Staten. The subject Is "The
Annunciation." The nngcl with wings
outspread In lllght, the star throwing Its
glory around them, tho shepherds with
their (locks "abiding In tho field," nre
an faithfully portrayed In a very beau
tiful whole. Large fringed chrysanthe
mums and dahlias and many cut (low
ers were grouped about the window and
platform. Directly opposite the window
over the entrance door Is the circular
window picturing the Christ child In tho
temple, with the doctors, given In mem
ory of Charles Slmonds by his wife.
This window was placed in the church
when It was built, but its tender solem
nity nnd power seem to grow with tho
years. At the right of the pulpit Is the
double window, one half representing
"The Good Shepherd," being the figure
of the Saviour with a lamb In his arms,
its mother at the side trustingly follow
ing, given In loving memory of Marshall
1. Reed. Tho other half shows the fig
ure of Jesus with a little child In his
arms, another at his side with out
stretched hand filled with (lowers,
"Christ blessing little children," In loving
memory of Eugene II. Akley. To those
who knew tho strong friendship between
these men, the unity of subjects and
arrangement is significant. Clusters of
red and white roses were at the base of
the wlndqws nnd all about the audience
room were potted plants, nutumn leaves,
cut flowers and nBparagus.
Beginning his service with the scrip
ture reading of Jacob's dream and the
setting up of the stones In remembrance,
the pastor raid he was departing some
what from the usual order of dedica
tions. It Is certain the service lost
nothing In beauty, strength or comfort
by the change. Reading the passages
from the Bible appropriate for each win
dow Mr. Trout told In his helpful words
how to let these beautiful memorials be
nn Inspiration In our lives till we, too,
"shall see the King In his beauty and
behold the land' that Is very far off."
The beauty and Inspiration of the ser
vice was strengthened by the singing
by the choir of the Unlversalist
church In Brattlcboro.
