gregation. Seated in the pulpit were the
pastors of most of the Baptist churches in
this city, and in the large audience were
many prominent people of the c:ty. Ad!
dresses were made by several local minis
ters as an accompaniment to the simple
unveiling ceremony.
The tablet, which is the work of Keyser,
the New York sculptor, presents a side-view
picture of Dr. Meador. At his back is the
torch, representing his life through this
world, and in front of him is a tall palm,
a symbol representing that he is looking '
forward to victory. A scroll connects the 1
torch and the palm of victory, representing
his life, and written on that scioll of life
are the words, "His Record Is On high."
Beneath that at the base of the tablet are
inscribed the w<mis:
ntv. i~nasia:n i-.iaifv oiouur, lj.u.
Under God. Founder and Faithful, Bsloved
Pastor of this Church from 1857 to 11KM."
The tablet is about four feet high and
three feet in width and occupies a prom
inent place back of the pulpit to the right.
Unveiling Ceremonies.
The ceremony of unveiling occupied but a
brief period and was held when the even
ing's services were about half over. When
that part of the program came Dr. Weston

there were twenty-one members. Of those
only one remains, it was announced, and It
was considered fitting that she should have
the honor of pulling aside the curtains
which covered the tablet. Miss Julia Bryan
then stepped forward and drew the cur
tains. Every head was bent forward, every
eye was focused upon the tablet, a- I the
audience gazed for fully a m'nute In in
tense interest and silence. That was f(5l
lowed by murmurs of approval all over the
church. At the conclusion of the service
many went onto the pulpit to admire the
tablet at a closer range.
Dr. Bruner. pastor of the church, presided.

Church and Rev. Hugh Stevenson of the
Bethany Baptist Church.
By the use of many chaira in the aisles
the people who thronged the church were
seated, and Dr. Brur.er announced the open
ing of the services, and the hymn "Jesus,
Lover of My Soul." one of the late pastor's
favorite hymns, was sung. Following that
Rev. Mr. Ball read Psalm xxiv as the Scrip
ture lessen.
The Addresses.
Dr. Willingham was the first speaker. He
first mentioned his strict honesty, declaring
that there was no sham about Dr. Meador.
He had his own opinions, the speaker said,
and he stood by them to the end. And be
sides his honesty of purpose, his fidelity to
his home was another characteristic.
"Give me the man who knows how to
treat his wife an<J"tiis family, for he Is the
righteous man," declared the speaker.
"Such a man was Dr. Meador."
Fidelity to his church was another char
acteristic, and In this connection the
speaker told of the trials and drawbacks
of the early days of the church, when there
were few members, no meeting house and
a civil war in the country. By his fidelity,
the speaker recalled, he raised the church
to Its present proportions In the handsome
new edifice and with two pastors, one at
home and one in China.
"How he loved Virginia," exclaimed the
speaker, in telling of another trait. "And
more important than the rest," said Dr.
Willingham, "was his fidelity to his God.
In that he remained steadfast."
In closing, Dr. Willingham spoke of a
memorial which he thought Dr. Meador
would have liked?a Meador memorial
chapel in China.

came next. Dr. Green was Introduced. He
spoke of Dr. Meador as a pastor and said
that he was a man of love?he loved his
work and his people. He had confronted
many a sorrowing household and united
many beating hearts in wedlock during his
life. His success, he said, was duj to his
love of his work as a pastor.
Dr. Swem, in opening his remarks, stated

occaslpn. but as a tLme for rejoicing, be
cause a good man has accomplished his
work and his work has been crowned. He
spoke of Dr. Meador as a man. Chiefly
characteristic of him was his patient cheer
fulness, he said. "Give me the man that
docs his duty; but give me also the man
who rejoices in his duty .and sings while
doing it," said the speaker. He toid of
Dr. Mcador's start with a Sunda.' school
on what was known as "the Island," and
of his uphill work in getting the present
prosperous church started. His sense of
humor was also commented upon by Dr.
Swem. "I knew him as the truest Chris
tian gentleman," he concluded.
Concluding Exercises.
Dr. Muir was the last speaker. He gave
Dersonal reminiscences of Dr. Meador and
he stated that, in looking for the memorial
to Dr. Meador's work, he looked not at the
tablet, not at the church edifice, but into
the faces and lives of his congregation.
He recalled the tragic incident of Dr.
Meador's death, at the conclusion of a
funrral service just two years ago. After
announcing "Dr. Bruner will now speak to
you," Dr. Meador stepped back, the speaker
said, his head fell upun his breast a>-1 he
never spoke again. He thougnt that in
those last words Dr. Meador expressed his
wishes regarding tils successor.
Dr. Bruner spoke briefly, simply stating
that he hoped Dr. Meador's life would be
repeated in the lives of the members of
his congregation and in his own life. Rev.
Hugh Stevenson pronounced the benedic
tion.
The music of the evening was in charge
of William J. Palmer.

For Many Weeks Willis Hall Could
Not Remember.
Special Dispatch to The Star.
EAST HAMPTON, Conn., November 10.?
After a mysterious absence of eight weeks
from his home, during a large part of which
his mind has been a blank, he says, Willis
Hall, tc-wn clerk and treasurer of Marl
borough, was brought back about midnight
Dy nis wire and brother-in-law, Frank
Ryan. Eight weeks ago last Sunday even
ing Mr. Hall left his house saying that he
was going to the pasture to attend to his
stock. The following day his team was
found in a livery stable at Willlmantic, and
in it were a few of his farming implements.
He has a faint remembrance of leaving
his horse and wagon in some livery stable,
but did not know whether it was Providence
or Willlmantic. That he has suffered great
hardships is evident from his appearance.
He has lost much weight, and when he
showed up at the Smith farm was in bad
aiiape. nis mina ciearea the day before
the letter to Mrs. Hall was written. When
he left his town accounts were correct and
his home and surroundings were pleasant.
He has a wife and seven children. It Is
thought that overwork and too little sleep
effected his mind. Mrs. Hall said today
that she thought her husband would fully
recover in time.

fore you with the hope that I miy have a
reward offered by the stale for the appre
hension and conviction of a party who has
been poisoning stock in this county.
"A Mr. Henley, who lives near Laytons
vllle, has had Ills stock poisoned at three
different times and his home burned. There
have been six head of cattle and four horses
poisoned.
"We have been unable to ferret out the
perpetrator of these crimes and the county
commissioners have offered a reward of
$1,000.
"I believe if we could gret the state to
offer the same amount it may Induce some
one to give us some information which may
lead to the arrest and conviction of the
guilty party.
"The party I suspect is rather prominent
in the community, and I do not believe we
can get any information without the per
son giving it is more than well compen
sated.
"This is the most sejious series of of
fenses that have been comm'tted in this
county in years, and I feel almoHt helpless
to do anything, and my only hope is that a
large reward may induce Fonre one to- (five
us some information."
