MR. BAKER ORDAINED.
Interesting Ceremony Took Plaoe in the
Baptist Church Yesterday.
The oonnoil of the Monmouth Bap
tist oliurohes called to ordain William
E. Baker, met in the Baptist charoh
on Tuesday afternoon, and after a
thorough examination of the candi
date's conversion, oall to the ministry
and views of the Christian doctrine,
voted to prooeed with the ordination
exercises, whioh occurred the same
evening at the same place.
The following is the program :
Soripture Reading, Rev. Thomas D.
Prayer, Rev. H. O. Newman.
Sermon, Rev. O. P. Baches D.D.
Ordaining Prayer, Rev. N. A.
Charge to Candidate, Rev. J. Y.
Hand of Fellowship, Rev. J. F.
Benediction, Rev. William B.
?' The moderator of the council was
Rev. ?J. W. H. Parker, of Middletown,
and the clerk was Rev. J. F. Ooote,
Rev. Mr. Dyer and Rev. Mr. Mul
hern, both former pastors of the First
Baptist ohuroh, oi this borough, were
unable to be present to ta*e part in
the ceremonies as exported.
The ordainingof William Baker was
a groat event in this borough as he
| was born here and started on his career
as a Sunday school soholar in the
churoh in whioh he was ordained last
evening after the most rigid question
ing in the afternoon >oeremonies. It
was thought by some of the members
of the ohurch that he would not be
able to answer some of the questions
that were asked, but he did splendid
ly and onvered himself with glory in
more than one sense of the word. The
ceremony was beautiful. The ohurch
was beautifully deoorated with palms
and daisies. The choir was stationed
behind two embankments of daisies
and the congregational singing was
rendered there by them. The effect
was fine. Miss Maggie Jackson pre
sided at the organ. Mrs. Irwin sang
the solo ' ' Behind the Gates of Para
dise" very teweetly, with Miss Jaok
son as aooompanist. Deacon Thomas
Baker, the young man's father has
been looking forward to this event
for a long time and today found him
quite able to be taken in a carriage to
a friend's house and to the church to
witness the the great triumph of 'his
son although he has been very ill in
deed. He witnessed both ceremonies
and Btood it very well so far and no
bad results are feared, for, as hi*
daughter, Mrs. Anderson, feelingly
expressed it to her father, ' ' God is
too good to let any harm come from
On Wednesday morning Rev. Will
iam Baker starts for the east, where
he will probably settle. He has had
three calls, and may aooept one in
New Hampshire. He looks very
young aod bright and has a pleasing'
personality. We congratulate him on
his splendid sucoess and extend our
best wishes for the future.
"He hath triumphed gloriously."
NEED OF THE CARS.
, This question has been asked, Why
do the people want to go to the oeme
tery? Meaning, why do they desire
the trolley oars to run np there? The
.question can be answered, and various
^ freasong given very easily. The plots,
if kent in good order, require atten
tion, watering, eto. To do this those
who have dear ones bnried there are
compelled to take a long up hill walk
whioh in summer time is particularly
tiresome and very many are not able
to take it as they would like to. It
~ is oustomary for people to walk out
in that direotion too, and stop and
view the prettily decorated plots ? and
graves and then go on up the road
past there, for a walk through tho
woods for a breath of the pure spioy
air, and if they get very tired, what
a oomfort it would be to be able to
take a trollev oar from the cemetery
to their homes.
Why do the people want to go to the

cemetery? Why it is one of the great
est pleasures some of those mourning
for their loved ones can have, that of
placing flowers on their graves, and
it grieves them that they aren't able
to walk there and carry their pretty
offerings, whioh some of them think
their dear ones may know of. If
flowers are placed there, unless attend
ed to they soon die and it requires
many a walk during dry weather to
keep them alive. These are a few of
the reasons for Wanting the M. and 8.
