terest. Prof. Wm. J. Charlton of New

Flower Service will be held in the church.
The young people will gather flowers and
decorate the church for the occasion.
They will be pleased to receive gifts of
flowers from any member of the commu
nity. It is to be hoped that everybody
will assist the young people in the task ,
which they have undertaken. The ser
vice will be conducted by Rev. A. C. El- I
liott, and perhaps Prof. Charlton will j
play again. Let everybody in the village :
plan to attend this service. It will be ;
worth while.
