C., and the lighting system by a friend of Dr. Guerrant. Another friend has raised the funds to carpet the aisles and the rostrum. The auditorium is finished in the beautiful yellow pine, which is in contrast with the dark pews, and the furniture of the pulpit, and the fine old organ that was rescued from the fire. The polished -floor is the gift of Mobray Robinson Lumber Company of Quicksand, where this church now has a thriving new branch mission. Of the ten large win dows and eight smaller ones there are six memorial windows; four of the latter being to the late Dr. Guerrant ? one the gift of his daughter, Mrs. D. Clay Lilly, of Winston-Salem, N. C.; two from old churches, Wilmore and Troy, and the fourth given by the local chapter of D. A. R., whose first meeting in Jackson was opened with prayer by Dr. Guerrant, at the same time he visited Jackson to lay the cornerstone of the church. Colonel Charles Hoge, of Frankfort, has fur nished the office-study in the base ment of the church. There is In the basement a kitchen, toilet and recre ation rooms, which are used on Sun day for Sunday-school and the Chris tian Endeavor, and in the mid-week for the Prayer Meeting Circle.
