PASTOR HOPES FOR CHURCH UK ITT "i am looking forward to the time when all churches of the Protectant Christian faith will bi united, aad I do n t think that tlie time is far dis tent when a united church mill be realized, and it may came in fcbeaext ten j ears," says Rev. Harry C. Stagers pastor of a Kansas City Presbyterian church. Four of his reasons far so ibeHevIng are: "We all agree that there is bat one religion. That is the faith that is handed down to us sinee the da of .Jesus Christ. Protestants are not divided on the question of the eternal welfare of souls ,' "The present separation of the .de nominations results in coofiuLea io the unbeliever." "These are too many churches fat one conamunity and not enough Con centration. of labor." The teak .of bringing- men And women to Christ is big enough for .united church. We need to support .each other is the great cause."

At present the road is proposed to be improved by the county irs the way of drainage, culverts and the like. It has two iozs ia Jr. one ol which will have to r.niaiB or have another road cut as the road has never been opened on that par:;cu'ar line. If the roac3 does not jog this half mile sontb it comes almost directly throngb Stark. Mt. Clouse reprtscnts the merchants of Stark, who ac knowledge that the Chanute stores carry a cless of goods that they themselves cannot afLrd to carry and that they would be glad to have that class come to Chanute rather than go to the north or soutb. The extra distance forpeeple in that community if the r jad j -g,s a a half mMe w'll add considerable distance to the trip to Chanute and back. They also point oiaS ta there will be ex'n distaste to socncT money on.

However he says that if this is ncn decided to be practical the road he is in favor of is the one that i2 bring more people to Chanute an5 give more people the benefit of the good road that this county road) will be. The direct route would pass through the middle of Grant Township. If the . road is pot through it is expected that it will be kept in excellent condition. Drainage is the first matter tbat will be attended to and that is one thing that all experts agree on that drainage is of the first and pnmay importance in the making of a good roadway.
