Immediately at the close of the morning service every ope was in vited to the Cumberland Park where an old fashion West Texa feed was ready and waiting at the lunch coun ter, and there wa sure enoujh plenty and much to spare. Fact of the business many remained for supier and still there was much left yet to eat. Hundreds quenched their thirst on ice cold lemonade, water and tea. The Lubbock Cumberland Presby terian church was organized on the Dth day of August, 11(08, with seven charter members. One of these has been called to the gi-.-at eternal gathering where there will be do farewells, nor benedictions. Five of fhe charter member were present, which are as follows: Mr. and Mrs. K. P. Karhart of Lubbock, Mrs. R. A. Rankin of Lubbock, and Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Buchanan of Petersburg. This congregation ha grown stead ily from the day of it's organization, and to day it ha a membership of nearly ioil, with one of the best Sunday schools in the city. Thia membership is composed of those who have separated themselves from the world and it's allurements, and refuse to engage in many of the worldly amusement that so easily destroy u Christian' influence. Thank dod for clean Christian men and women who are willing to deny themseives and take up their cross and follow Jesus, instead of the world and it's folly. In the afternoon, . splendid pro gram was rendered by the Elders of the church and thereby reviewing the brief history of the lo'4al con gregation. These talks all brought out one greut fact and that was the faithfulness and self-sacrificing . haracters who have labored both in 'h- pulpit ai.d in the pew. This was a great day for all who att nded and it was the unanimous d ii in of all v ho were present both Cumberland as well as the great host of friends and visitors. It is the desire of the Committee on arrangements to express their in-ere thanks to the various committee:- for their s. lendid work, and ,o all who in nny way contributed to the sin -e.-s.s of this event. Lt us be faithful, and lubor for the Master with true loyalty to our dear chur.-h, and may the God of ail goodness spare our charter members to ree August It, 11123, when we hope to have even a greater gather ing than this.
