The Windham Union ministers' meeting for December was held in the church this' forenoon, on the general subject, The1 Early History of the Churches of AVind-j ham and Windsor Counties, introduced by Itev. Dr. Merrill and participated in by all present. Discussion was led by Dr. C. C. Merrill of Burlington, secre tary of the Vermont Congregational Con ference, on the subject, What Shall We Breach About This Winter;? The women of the church served dinner to the visit ing ministers.

Clifford H. Smith of Eudlow on The Future of the Churches in tin; Light of the Fast. . Tonight at 7.-".0 a reminiscence meeting will be held, when various speakers will give recollections of interesting incidents of old times in the West Brattleboro church. The first minister in the old ''meeting house" on the hill was liev. Aimer Iieeve, who was the first minister in Brattleboro. He came in 1770, preaching alternately in Brattleboro and Guilford the lirst three years and after that wholly in this town. He continued preaching until 1704. or 24 years, when he was obliged to decline be cause (if infirmities, being Nt5 years old. He preached at Fort Dummer occasion ally before any meeting house was built in this town. The next pastor was liev. William Wells, who preached from March. 17!4. to March. 1N14, 120 years, when he gave up the pastorate because the par ish, which covered the whole town, was too great a burden for him. and became the first pastor of the Centre (Vingrega tional church in the east village. Since then the pastors have been as follows: Caleb Burge. 1M4-1S10; Jede diah L. Stark. lSl'.l-ls;?!! (L'O years) ; Cor bin Kidder. 1 s:;-l ,S4." ; Joseph Chandler. IS4(i-lS72 C'S years! ; Charles.

The last four named and Dr. Mer rill are the only survivors. The church has a membership of about 2(H. The tirst church building which was occupied by what is now the First Con gregational church of West Brattlel.oio "as built in 177t. It stood on Meeting House hill and was the first church in town. The site was marked some years ago through the efforts of the late Ezra E. Fisher The building was occupied 1." years, until 17n.". when it was sold to Israel Smith. It did not contain much if any sawed lumber. In 1773 the March meeting of the town was held in the "meeting house" for the first time, and from then until 17x."i Ixith the church and town business meetings were held there, except that occasionally in winter an adjournment would be taken to some private dwelling. In 17s.". after the disMsition of the original building on the hill, a new church edifice was begun in West Brattleboro vil'age. on the north side of the main highway, but. more than 10 years elapsed before it was comp'eted. The frame was ejected in 1 7s." aecepteil. by tie tow n, arid a new ooinfiifrtee w!;is chosen to en close it. At the raising of the frame the committee was authorized by vote of the town to employ l."0 men. and a substan tial tax was necessary to cover the nsf of rum ami shugar." also for "nales and glass." In this unfinished state the building was occupied, ami during the long period before it was completed there was much division of opinion and harsh words were sjsiken. This second bui'ding stood in its or iginal state until ISIS and served up to that time ns a church and town house for the whole town. It was then moved across the road and re-occupied until de stroyed by fire in ISl.'i, when the third church was built, the frame of which is the frame of the present building. The third church was erected in S1." p and the late Lafayette Clark was chairman of the bui'ding committee. The total expense of construction, furnishing, ets.. was .S2.7'lx. This structure was en tirely remodeled in ISSf!, and the cost or rejuvenation " was ' about double the original cast of the building. ' The committee in charge of remodel ing the church in 1S8G was Dr. Charles S. Clark, A. W. Stowe and W. II. Fisher, all now deceased, and the con tract was given to Mr. Stowe, who fol lowed plans of a New York architect. The frame of the old building having been retained for the new, the external dimensions were essentially the -same, 40 by ('',) feet on the ground, w ith a' choir recess 1 by IS feet on the west side and a chaind - by 40 feet on the rear. Tow ers rise from both front ciyners, that on the east being surmounted by a steeple, which rises to a height of !0 feet.! The seating eaimoity of the main room is about MoO. The windows are of cathed ral glass, and several of them are of a memorial character. The lecture room is .!," by '27- feet, separated from the, audience - room by s'iding doors.. Ad joining1 the lecture room on the' west is the church parlor, 27i by l.'i feet. The entire outlay in reconstructing and re furnishing the church was about .$4,fM, which was raised by voluntary subscrip tion. By further subscription a town clock was procured, which is in the tower. , . At the re-dedi.-ation dw.erci.sos were held Tuesday, Dec. 14. ISSO. In the afternoon the pastor, liev. C. II. Merrill, gave a historical address, and other pas tors iu the county had a part in the pro gram. Services also were held in ' the evening, when liev. Charles O. Day. who was pastor of the Centre Congregational church in this village, preached tlie ser mon. The ministers of the Windham as sociation met the following morning, lis tened to reiorts of the churches and an address by liev. Dr. Stevens of Westmin ster West and had dinner at Mrs. J. II. Dnnklee's. The second half-century, from 1S20 to 1S70, was covered in a sermon. The Church of Our Fathers, last evening by liev. Joseph IL Chandler of Northamp ton." Mass.. whose father. liev. Joseph Chandler, was pastor of the church from 1S40 to 1S72, preceding liev. Dr. Merrill The praise service which preceded the sermon included a vocal solo bv Cap tain C. O. Tilton. and The Abiding Fel 'owship. a hymn written by the younger Rev. Mr. ('handler, was sung. Mrs. W. E. Stellman rendering the tirst two verses as a solo and the audience joining in the last three verses. Kev. Mr. Chandler made fitting re marks in reference to his father, and sjwike of the original covenants of the (hurch. He said he wanted to help the tM-i)!e to understand the character of "this church of our fathers." and the character of the church is determined by its faith. He referred to the faith that actuated "our fathers" in building the church and spoke of the I'ilgrim faith with its conditions, and the I'uritan faith to the fact that the I'uritan faith called upon others to suffer, while those of the I'ilgrim faith suffered and endured them selves. The reformation was touched upon and the history of the church at large was brought into the sermon in a way which fitted appropriately into the history of the church which was observing its an niversaiy. litting reference being made to the missionaries who went out from the church and of tlie welcome which thev received when they came back.

Just wound up the one swcllc&t day of my life! Since early this morning, when I got an invitation to visit R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. factories, I've been in the midst of millions of Camel cigarettes. Man the happiest idea you or I ever had as to the size of this Reynolds enter prise, or the number of Camels manufac tured daily, is simply piker-stuff ! Wipe off the slate and start fresh! Why Pete it seemed to me like a couple of those cigarette-making machines could keep half the nation smoking Camels steadily BUT honest to goodness, there are hundreds of these machines batting out Camels at the rate of 27,000 an hour EACH! Pete, you wouldn't have to consult a guide book to know you were in the Camel fac tories! The atmosphere is charged with that wonderful aroma you get when you open up a deck of Camels! And, you know, old elephant you've had a trunk full! As the Camels dropped into, the contain ers I figured the delight each one would supply! And, how Camels mellow, mild body would hit the right spot and how Camels refreshing flavor would cheer up some smoker's jaded appetite! And, each Camel free from any unpleasant cigaretty aftertaste or unpleasant cigaretty odor! And , a- ., - Pete I'll have to lay off and light an other Camel! Write you some more soon.
