The Congregational Church Anni versary in now a thing of the past, but will linger long in the memory. The day was manufactured to order. The weather was simply perfect. Expec tation had been wrought up to a high pitch. The workers of this church deserved all the favorable conditions which were met on this occasion. We judge they were not disappointed. Faithful committees had been tireless in their efforts to make the occasion a success, and we are only too glad to record that success was achieved. There was not an essential cog in the program wheel that wai missing. Three states were represented In the order of exercises, and they all furn ished their quota. 'The program, though s6mewliat lengthy and presenting a wide scope, was commenced on time and not pro longed to any tedious length. The ex ercises began at 1 :30, with an organ voluntary, followed by a doxology and invocation. Then a beautiful song; "How lovely are the messengers," was rendered by a quartet, consisting of Miss Benedict, Mrs. King and Messrs. Dorchester and King. A scripture lesson was then read by Rev. C. E. Manchester pastor of the First . Methodist church, Canton, O., and prayer was offered by Rev. Jas. A. Daly. This was followed by a good old song ; "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name", in which all heartily Joined. REV. W. E. BARTON, D. D. Treated "Ojr Church History" in his peculiar style and inimitable manner, much to the pleasure and edification of those present, after which a trio, consisting of MibS Benedict, Mrs. King and Mr. Wadsworth sang: "Day Spring from on High". Then follow, ed: REMINISCENCES. This was participated in by E. F. Webster, Dea. Horace Wadsworth, F.B. Manley, E.S. Tripp, J.T. Haskell, BenJ. Wadsworth and E. T. Clifford in short and interesting speeches. This was con sidered, by many, one of the most pleasing features of the program. Then came another old fashioned song ; "How Firm 'a Foundation", after which came a beautiful "MEMORIAL" To Rev. Ansel R. Clark, pastor 1845 1868, by his daughter, Miss Mary A. 0. Clark. This was delicate and ' touching and brought ' vividly into retrospect the long time ago, when the subject of the sketch went in and out among the people, many of whom were present. Then followed a paper by Charles Phelps oi) the STATISTICS of the church, as to its membership, Its home expenses and its benevolences, wlncn was, doubtless, in many featr ures, s revelation to many members of . the church, as well as others. "Th Ladiai' Benevolent goaietles", by Mrs. S. K. Laundon? "Our Sunday School" by Dea. Wm. H. Fisher; "Our Young People's Societies", by Miss Elizabeth Johns, and "The First Con gregational Society .-Its Relation to the Church," by W. R. Wean, which filled out the balan. e of the afternoon ses sion, were each interesting, thought ful, and presented in good Btyle and in good taste. "NEARER MY GOD TO THEE" .was then sung, th; benediction pro nounced, and the curtain drawn upon the scenes of the afternoon. Then followed one of the most en joyable features of the occasion, and as it was not down on the program, only about 300 people sat down to SUPPER in the beautiful church parlors. This was a surprise to many people, but they very easily conquered their cha grin, and di-owned their injured feel ings in a good cup of fragrant coffee or tea, and by partaking of the good and substantial eatables with which the tables were spread. THE EVENING SESSION commenced a little late, but it was because many of the people wanted to visit. An organ voluntary was play ed and the hymn ; "Come Thou Al mighty King"' wag sung, followed by scripture lesson by Rev. A. G. Wall and prayer by , Re v. K. L. Waggoner. A beautiful anthem was then rendered by the choir; "The Lord is Exhalted" after which the audience settled them selves for the evening feast. "OUT OF THE OLD CHURCH INTO THE NEW" was the first subject, well treated by Rev. Jag. A. Daly, Muncie, Ind, pastor from 1877 to 1883 who, in a homelike pleasing manner gave a history of the occurences of that transition period of the church when he was pastor of it, which witnessed its change of location from the present opera house site to the beautiful corner location across the park. With a twinkle in his eye he mentioned one cause of removal, viz. thedisturbance'of the Methodist bre th en who worshiped so close to them. Whether the good Methodist brethren reciprocated this sentiment or not, we are not advised. This whs followed by "OUR ORDEAL BY FIRE" by Rev. A. F. Skeele, of Paines ville, 0., pastor 1893 to 1898, which period covered the time of the destruction by fire of the edifice erected under Rev. Daly's pastorate, and the erection of the present edifice. This Wus given in Mr. Skeele'i own style and could not easily have been Improved upon. A breathing spell was taken at this point to sing another old hymn; "Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me" and then "THE PAST0RLES3 CHURCH" was depicted in suitable and elegant phrase by Rev. A. H. Currier, D. D. of Oberlin, who served the church as its temporary supply during four dif ferent periods of pastorless condition which it had suffered. His view of the caBe, if heeded, would never per mit a church, if possible to avoid It, to lapse into a pastorless condition. Theni "THE TIE THAT BINDS" was tho subject of a brief address by Rev. H. M. Tenney, D. D., of Oberlin who teated it in a graceful, scholarly manner, which Was well received by alL This was followed by an anthem I "Kiplings Recessional" by Mr. Wads worth and choir, after which, "THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH' waa the subject of an address by Rev. W.E. Barton, D. D., Oak Park, 111., pastor from 1890 to 1893. To attempt to describe Mr. Barton's style would be useless, only to say that all who had heard him before, expected to be satisfied. This was followed by the very ap propriatesong: "Shall We Gather at the River", and Benediction. Thus closed the exercises of the day and as the figurative curtain fell upon the stage, In glittering letters across its face might have been written ; ' "SUCCESSS." There were fully 500 people' present at each session, and probably a great er number in the evening. Rev. II. D. Sheldon, pastor of the i hurch, was moderator of the occasion and presided with dignity and grace, occasionally injecting, in the intervals of the program, well timed and appro priate remarks. This a job, which iT performed judiciously and well, adds much to the occasion, and in this in stance it was so done. We are sure the Congregational people may feel gratified by the inter est shown in the affair by the other churches and by the general public All seemed to sympathize and were only too glad to help matters along, and being among the general public, we reach out a hand of congratulation, sympathy and fellowship and bid you God Speed" on your journey of seV' enty-flve years to come. May you, good people, always be as you now are. an honor to Wellington, a power in the uommunity for good, and a more widely growing blessing to the race as the years go on. Risep from ruins and ashes, now stands a beautiful temple which would grace a large city, and we know, with the material of which such people are made, you have before you a glorious future, and we wish you, as you de serve, success.

YOUR MtWil Ask your physician this ques tion, "What is the one great remedy for consumption?" He will answer, "Cod-liver oil." Nine out of ten will answer the same way. Yet when persons have consumption they loathe all fatty foods, yet fat 1 neces sary for their recovery and they cannot take plain cod liver oil. The plain oil dis turbs the stomach and takes away the appetite. The dis agreeable fishy odor and taste make it almost unen durable. What is to be done? This question was ans wered when we first made SCOTT'S EMULSION of Cod-Liver Oil with Hypo phosphites. Although that was nearly twenty-five years ago, yet it stands alone to day the one great remedy for all affections of the throat and lungs. , The bad taste and odor have been taken away, the oil itself has been partly digested, and the most ten sitive stomach objects to it rarely. Not one In ten can take and di jest the plain oil Nine out of ten can take SCOTTS EMULSION and di gest ft Thafi why H cures to many cases of early consumption, Even In advanced cases it brings comfort and greatly prolongs life, Joe ifw)Si.oaalldruMiMm, ICOTTASOWNaTuienitu, New York, IAN-OLD pioiieer: SKETCH OF WM.

The subject of ls sketch waa born In Erie county, New York, July 22d, 1S15. He was a son of Salmon and Anna (Beeman) Sutllff. In August, 1820, when William was five years old, the family emigrated to Ohio. The journey was made with horse and wagon, conveying a few household good. Two dpw and a few sheep were driven along. They passed thrmiRi Buffulo, JT. YM which at that time consisted of a few dirty cabins or chanties. Passing through Cleveland, 0., they counted thirteen small log b'onves with not an acre cleared In any ov.r place on Superior, the only street la the city. . i , . -Heing ferried acrom the Cuyahoga river, they proceeded onward and lyaehed Avon township, Lorain county, where they remained until a piece of land was bought In Carlisle township and a log house 'built for the family. Into' this they moved January 1, i821, before any of the cracks were "chink etL" This residence thejr improved, however, by laying a floor of puncheons or split logs, building a chimney, "chinking" and inuddlng the cracks, fireplace and hearth with pole placed a ferw feet above the hearth, from or side of the chimney to the other, on which to hang kettles, etc. Their bread waa inade mostly of oornmeal, sometimes rye, wheat flour being kept for special occasions. Their meat was mostly venison and young fatted pork. Tea was almost unknown, and for coffee they burned an car of corn black, then steeped It in hot wa ter, cooled it with milk and sweetened it with maple sugur. . The now thriving town of Elyria con sisted then of three little huts, one of which was occupied by Herman Kly, another by A. Beebe and the third by a. Mr. Sholes, who kept a small grocery. Thirteen children were born to Salm on and Anna Sutliff nine boys and four girls, our subject being the second in order. Those living in this vicinity are Miles W., living in Penfield township, and Rosetta, widow of Wm. Gott, living east of this town. William II. II. recehed Ills education in Carlisle township during the old log school house period of three-quarters of a century ago. (His 'boyhood was cpent in harmony with the spirit of the times, wearing homemade clothes and going without boots until twenty years of age. He worked on the farm in daytime and hunted coons and skunks at night. When the town of Oberlin wus laid out he' worked there nearly three years, clearing the site for the future city. In 1834, our hero drove a four-ox team, on a contract, with a load of 6,500 pounds, to Jonesville, Hillsdale county, (Michigan, through a totally new country. Performing this feat, he returned to Ohio and pursued 'his usual avocation until March, 183s, when he engaged to drive another four ox team to Ionia, Mich. Thia journey was greatly hampered by mud and storm, and occupied twentyix days. Returning to Ohio, mostly on foot, the same year, he and his brother, Asa O., and a Mr. Murray, converted their ef fects Into twenty head of cattle and itarted for Ionia, Mich., which they reached after many hardships Incident to mud, swamp and wilderness. In 1840 Mr. Sutliff married Miss Phoebe D. Gott, of La Grange, Ohio, and the fruit of that union waa twelve children, all sons but one.

Mr. Sutliff has been a lifelong farmer and dairyman; has held many offices, such as school director, clerk of school boards, supervisor of highway, county commissioner one term, etc He waa always charitable to the poor, benevo lent toward the church at home and abroad, and has invested $1,100 in' a church building in Wellington, of whioh be lias been one of the trustees for thirty-one years, and lias been member of the M. E. church since he was sixteen years old. In .politics he has always 'been a re publican. His first presidential vote was cast for William Henry Harrison. Mr. Sutliff is an honored and respect ed member of our community, and al though very near death's door a year or two ago, by aickness, he Is now in good health for a man of his age, and we bespeak for him many years of travel yet down the western declivity of his career.

BOARD OF TRADE. A Need of Wellington-Its Scope and Powera To Care For Municipal Interests-To Watch For Business Opportunities - To Encourage Industry One crying need of Wellington is a Board of Trade, or something analagous thereto. It might consist of a committee of citizens, vested with semi-official powers." It should consist of at least are alive to the interests of be chosen at a mass convention of the people. They should be chosen, not as politicians or wire pullers, but as men who are financially interested in the material growth and advancement of the town . They should be such men from both a moral and a business point of view, as would command the respect and confidence of the people whom they serve. They should then be endowed with power to "a certain extent to act, in the way of looking out for busi ness opportunities J or the town; should be able to invite foreign capital to invest in business here and be authorize ed to guarantee to such foreigners all the moral and ma terial support and encouragement that it would be con, sistant for them to give. This is the way cities are built up and increased in population . If it is a good thing for cities, how much more essential it is for towns and vil lages whose material growth is largely before them, A short time ago, an umbrella factory was ready to come here, upon certain conditions. Some private parties and some officials were conferred with, but the conditions in this instance were too hard to be complied with and the factory has gone to Shelby. While we may not have l6st much in this instance, it is well to have a board ready to take action whenever the opportunity arises or something seeks admission within our gates which does not want the whole earth.
