Interesting Program Carri

eu wnt at r iiol mciiiudist
The twenty-ninth anniversary of
the organization of the Epworth
League in the United States was celebrated
in a fitting manner last evening
by the Epworth League of the
First Methodist Episcopal church in
conjunction with similar celebrations
held throughout the country.
An intersting program of a patriotic
nature was carried out and was
greatly enjoyed b ya large congregation
of people.
The first part of the program consisted
of a processional in which HO
young girls, clad in white, each hearing
a flag of the allies, marched
through the ansles of the church.
Short addresses were given by Rev.
C. E. Goodwin, pastor of the church;
E. E. Hale, president of the League,
and Miss Mae Hawkins.
A part of the program was devoted
to a recognition service for seven
members of the League who are in
the government service, and during
this service Rev. Dr. Goodwin dedicated
the service flag.
An interesting feature of the celebration
was a song sung by a group of
r.pworin i-eaguers, jveep me ueague
Fires Burning." The choir also furnished
special music which was very _
greatly enjoyed.
In^the addresses made during the
observance it was brought out that'
the Epworth League in the United
States now has a membership of 850,
000 and that of this number 25,000
are now in government service. The
Epworth League is doing a great
work in the army cantonments and a
plea was made for sums to help carry
on this work. A total of 12,000
young people were registered last
year at Epworth League institutes
held in various parts of the country.

New Chlorine Plant
at City Reservoir
Larger and more efficient chiorino
apparatus will be installed at the.city
reservoir. The present unit is small
and not at all capable of doing the
work at the local reservoir. At a cost
of approximately $500 the present
chlorine apparatus, which is an old
model, will he traded for new and upto-dato
The additional expense was authorized
at the meeting of the Board of Affairs
held at the city hall at 10 o'clock
this morning. It is believed that the
new apparatus will he much more efficient
especially in the summei
months when the present chlorine machinery
proves incapable.
