CENTERVILLE NOTES. The St. Valentine exercises given by the members of the A. M. E. Church on February 14 made quite a hit, and was successful financially. The members of the Christian Church have begun work on their church, and they say that they will be able to hold service in it in about a month. They gave a "working" last Saturday, and many responded to the call. The Baptists who are rebuilding their church just across the street from the Chrsitlan people also gave a "working" Saturday. The ladles of both churches pre pared the dfnher, and the two churches jointly had whaf can be properly called a "Feast in the Wilderness." On Saturday night Centerville was given a treat by Rev. Pope, who gave a high-class moving picture scenery. The whole show cannot be classed other than excellent for two reasons: The moral lessons taught in the pic tures and the pictures are all of our people. THE RIGHT VESSELS m TO COMMEMORATE IT -t- ANY Congregation can have its wants supplied by securing one of our .Quar-druple-Plated Table Silverware Com munion Sets at moderate prices and on reasonable terms. A set consists of one flagon, two goblets and two bread plates. If the church wants more goblets or plates, they can be furnished at an additional cost. The commemoration of the Lord's Supper is a very sacred ordinance. The custom for centuries has been to have special vessels for this occasion. Thus a communion set becomes an important part of this service. Many churches have used the old style com munion set while others use an individual set. Both are appropriate and well-recommended. One is no reflection upon the other. FOR. FURTHER. INFORMATION CONCER.NING PRICES AND TERMS. W RITE TO THE NATIONAL BAPTIST CHURCH SUPPLY Co., R. II.
