I K New Church Anniversary at Stanton The new United Presbyterian Church at Stanton held its first Anniversary Sabbath morning, December 3rd. Fitting cere mo nies were observed in the Bible School under the direction of Superintendent L. O.Knox and his efficient corps of teachers. Out of an attendance of 180 (not including visitors) practically every person in the school took part in the program. There were no "special features" since every class from the cradle roll to the senior Bible classes exhibited the work of each particular depart ment in a most interesting and attractive way. No "special feature" was made of the birthday offering. Yet this amounted to 37 71. This otter ins will be used to complete the furnishing of the church base ment for the Primary and Junior Department! of the school. The Anniversary Sermon was preached by President Campbell of Wesleyan College, Winches ter, Ky., on the theme ''Has the (tospel a Place in the Life of To day?" The sermon set forth in a masterly way the real necessity for the Church of Jesus Christ in every phase of our multiple life which we are living these days. The occasion was made more juyous- by the announcement at the close of the meeting Uy the Principal n f Stanton College Academy that the New World .Movement of the United Presby terian Church hud recently laid up in trust for our Academy an endowment of $50,000 (Fifty Thousand Dollars ) The Meeting at Powell's Valley Elder P. N. Taylor will contin ue services at Powell's Vallay, near the city, for several nights er. The church membership has been greatly revived under his prea.'hing and have become very active workers. Bro. Tay lor is doing his usual strong preachins at this church, and it it having effect. Bro. Taylor is very popular in Clay City as well as with the congregation at Pow. eli's Valley. He is plain, out spoken, not abusive nor offensive to any of his hearers. He creates harmony, not discords, in all his cdurch work. He is capable of doing great iiood in this portion of the county. Chapman's Sale Success The ten days rale at V. T. Chap man's store was indeed quite a success. The people were hungry for the bargains they know they always get when he pulls oil' his semi annual sales. Mr. Chapman is one of Clav City's livest mer chants and at all times enjoys his full share of the trade. A Good Rain The splendid rain which fell Monday and Monday night lias done a great amount of good. Small grain is very short for the want of moisture, (irass has also grown but little owing to the dry weather. The fodder has been too dry. to shuck corn to advan tage. The rain has put the river up past fording. Soon he Ready for More Light Wm. Bashaw, who makes the electric current for Clay City, is running night and day to supply the tewn with current, his storage batteries being inadequate for the increased consumption during the day.

In sama in stances property owners were on the streets two feet and more while others were back from the streets. There is no danger of any action being taken to force property owners back ofT t h m street since there seems to be already as much streets as can be eared for by the town Board. Any way the survey was benefi cial as it informed property own ers where their real lines are. E. O. Tutt and family who left Clay City a few weeks ago for the land of flowers, have located at Ft.
