Ito feel that every individual in
I every church which does nut
have a deiiiuomiuatioiutl organ?
isation know-at least something
about Christian F.mleavor, its
history, its record und its fu?

"Christian Budeuvor in Dixie,"
of which all Christian Kill lea
vors are so proud
Christian Endeavor was start
ad by Dr. Francis F.. (hark, in
the WiliiHiou Congregational
church, Portland, Maine, Feb?
ruary 2, 1881, with no thought
of the movement nvor being
used outside of that em-church.
Christian F.mleavor is now
used in every country on the
globe, ami has 80,000 societies
with l.ono,iioo members, ami is
used in 87 denominations.
Throughout Ihn world the
Methodist? lead in the number
of their Christum Endeavor
societies; the Presbyterians of
various names come next; the
Disciples of Christ und the Blip
lists third; the Reformed
churches fourth; the Congrcgn
tioualists fifth; the Lutherans
sixth, otc.
In our own country the order
is PreBbyteriun, Disciples, Bap?
tists, Reformed, Methodists,

As a rule the Methodist und
Baptist churches use their own
denominational society, but
there are a goodly number ol
Christian EnrJoavor societies in
the branches of these churches
in our southern states.

January 19.
Dr. Reginald Langhome, of
Richmond, bus been engaged
by the bureau of child welfare
of the Suite Hoard of Health to
conduct a seri?s of dental clin?
ics in Witte county for the ben?
efit of the school children. This

these defects than to keep the

raised out of the receipts taken
in at the clinic. All children
of widows or disabled fathers
will he taken free. A fee of lif
ty cents per extraction or tilling
will he charged all who an; able
to pay. The clinic will he open
