In Friday's Program
Some Notes Of Interest Con
cerning The Campers
A departure from mundane affairs
and nn abrupt transition into tho aes-
thetlclsm of religion is tho keynote of
tho success of the holiness meetings
at Camp Sychar. Religion, pure and
simple, Is tho slogan nnd a most suc
cessful one It Is. The enthusiasm dis
played on nil hands only confirms the
policy which has been adopted. A
greater manifestation of enthusiasm
has never been known before than
that which occurred Thursday even
ing. Rev. J. M. O'Bryen preached the
sermon and took his text from tho
Rev. VII. 10:
"They shall hunger no more,
neither thirst any more."
Rev. O'Bryen took occasion to offer
this as the correct solution of the
present difficulties In that respect
which are universal among tho poorer
classes. The rest of ills sermon was
an exposition on the glories and beau
ties of heaven, and, to quote ono min
ister, It was the most "effective yet

day's program. Rev. C. J. Fowler

services by unanimous vote. They are
nccompanied by Mrs. Sadie Mishey of
Jelloway and Miss Rich of Ravenna
on the piano. In addition, there Is Mr.
Noe, a cornetlst who is conceded to
put more feeling Into his playing than
anyone heretofore on tho grounds.
Mr. Noe's playing is of the kind that
stirs the heart-strings and resonates
through the whole system. x

Channel To Be Changed
Near Butler
To Prevent Washouts On
The B. & 0, Ry
The Baltimore &. Ohio railroad com
pany has completed plans for the con
struction of a new channel for Crook
ed creek near Butler and the work will
probably be begun within a short time.
The new channel will be constructed
with a view to prevent washouts of
the tracks of the company and also
prevent the annual flooding of the
town in the southern part of the coun
ty whenever there is any heavy rain.
The creek's channel at present
crosses the railroad tracks several tim
es and there is considerable low land
in the immediate vicinity of Butler
where the water flows when there Is a
heavy rain, or storm. Not only the
railroad tracks but the public road and
parts of Butler are flooded by .the wat
er and on several occasions during
the past year -it caused considerable
There is a high bluff running along
the south side of the railroad tracks
and it was thought that the expense
of diverging the channel of tho creek
would be too great, but the railroad
company's engineers have completed
the plans which call for the construc
tion of a new channel which will be
about 2,000 feet long and which will
be, wldo enough to carry off all the
water that comes down the creek at
flood seasons. It will be an expensive
improvement for the Baltimore & Ohio
railroad, but It will result in no more
washouts along tho track and also pre
vent tho town of Butler from being
flooded in tho future. The work will
be done under tho direction of Super
visor H. A. Rudolph. Mansfield News.
