Rev. L. T. Christmas Goes to Charles
ton, West Va.
After serving Central Baptist Church
for eleven years Rev., L. T. Christmas
resigned the pastoral charge of this
church and accepted a church in Charles
ton, West Virginia. When Kev. Christ
mas took charge of Central cnurcn in
Wilmington the congregation was few
in number ana without a house oi wor
ship except a small wooden building
that was used as a place for service.
Bro. Christmas soon proved himself to
be a zealous Christian and a faithful
pastor. In the place of the old .wooden
structure was soon erected a beautiful
brick edifice at a ciwt of about fifteen
thousand dollars. Great credit is due
this faithful and untiring brother for bis
earnest work to secure money to pay this
debt. At the time he left the church we
are informed that only a small amount
remained unpaid on the church. The j
church as it now stands, on the corner of
7thand Red Croea stieets.refl-KSts great
credit upon that most faithful pas'or
arid upon the city. His works will ever
live in the memories of the goodpeople
of this city. We wish him and his good
wife much success in their new field of
v Marriage Bells.

Latta Unsversity will be closed during
the Christmas holidays for all the session
for the purpose of rebuilding the budd
ings that were consumed by fire last May,
and also additional buildings. The Uni
versity is located in the village of Ooer
lin, N. C, one and one-half miles west of
the capitol building in the city. The lo
cation is the very best for a school, being
out of the busy city, but within easy
reach by means of the electric streetcars.
It is enough to say, that there bas not
been a single case of serious illness since
the establishment of the school. Each
dormitory is heated by stoves and hearths,
so every necessary comfort is pecured.
The terms are very reasonable $7 50 per
month. Those desiring to reduce their
expenses by work will be taken at the
lowest possible rates: young men $6 40
per month ; young women (5.40 per
month; day students $1 per month. A
email incidental fee will be charged.
The school will reopen on the 7th day
of October, 1897. Our purpose is to make
it one of the largest schools in the South
for the race. Law and Medicine will be
added. The institution is wholly non
sectarian in its religious instruction or
influence. Yet earnest attention will be
riven to Bible study, applying its truths
to daily life and conduct, that a thorough
Christian character may be obtained. It
is open to all students of either sex.
None but competent teachers will be em
ployed. For further information, address the
President, Rev. IL L. Latta, D. D.
I will leve for the North and. Europe
the latter part of December or the first
of January, and will return time enough
to have buildings completed by the re
openiDg of the school. The University
will contain eight buildings.
