A Fine Sermon Delivered By
The New Pastor
In Which He Speaks From
1st. Chapt. 0 John
Rev. Elton D. Barnett Takes
Up His Work Here
The Sunday morning and evening
services at tho Gay Street M. E.
church were conducted by Rev. Elton
D. Darnett, the new pastor, who ar
rived In the city on Saturday evening
from Lorain, where he has held the
pastorship of the First Methodist
church of that city for some time. As
usual, tho church was filled on Sun-
New Pastor of the Gay Street Method
, dlat Episcopal Church
day to hear the new minister and It
is needless to say that they were
pleased. Rev. Barnett has an excel
lent delivery and his sermons were
most entertaining. His language is
polished and every word came forth
apparently with no effort at all on the
part of the speaker.
Before tho sermon on Sunday mprn
ing; Rev. G. A. Reeder, who has for
the past two years been pastor of the
church, gave an address of welcome
to Rev. Barnett In which he compli
mented him in many ways and stated
that he had been personally acquaint
ed with tho new minister for a period
of twelve years and that he knew him
very Intimately. Rev. Reeder stated
that It Jwould bo unnecessary to take
Rev. Barnett on probation because he
knew him to bo thoroughly capable
and efllcient to fill the position to
which ho had been assigned. In con
cluding hisVhort address, Rev. Reed
er expressed his sincero thanks to tho
members of tho church for the kind
ness and help rendered himself and
his family during his term as pastor in
Mt. Vernon and stated that the kind
ness would be doubly returned to the
children of any of tho members should
they decide to send them to Baldwin
university, of which Rev. Reeder will
be president.
Rev. Barnett, ju'st before his short
sermon, thanked tho people for tho
manner in which he had been received
in Mt. Vernon and oven though ho had
left nil of his old friends In Lornln,
he would mako a great effort and cul
tivate ninny new friends In Mt. Ver-

non nnd would soon foci at homo
tigaln, Ho Btnted that It Ih a very hop
Ioub inuttor to ntnko a chnngo of pas
tors for any church. It might ho for
tho hotter and It might ho for tho
worse. Hov. Harnett stated that ho
slnceioly holloved that Clod had given
Retiring pastor of the Gay 8treet
Methodist Episcopal Church
him his calling and that he was In
tended to follow tho ministry, which
he Is doing with nil his power. He
also believed that It is his duty to car
ry, out the greatest work that God
ever gave man to do, that Is to preach
the gospel 'to tho people. Ho thanked
Rev. Iteeder for tho kind welcome and
Introduction given him and stated that
ho would do all In his power to come
up with the expectations of tho people.
He wished Itev. Iteeder God-speed and
the greatest success in his work at
Baldwin university at Berea, Ohio,
Tho text taken for the morning ser
mon by Rev. Bainett was taken from
tho 1st chapter of John, the first 2G
vcises, In which Jesus Christ appearp
to the Jews, but Is not recognized or
accepted. The sermon was very pleas
ing and convincing and the numerous
points brought out by Rev. Barnett
could not have been disputed by the
greatest infidel.
Although tho members of the
church regret the fact that Rev. Reed
er hasj been called away from them,
there Is not a doubt but that they will
bo well pleased with Rev. Barnett
who has now fully taken up the dut
ies as pastor of the church.

The stereoptlcon lecture Saturday
night, by State Secretary Clark was
splendid, giving a clear presentation
of the organized Sunday school work
through the country. This is the on
ly illustrated lecture on Sunday school
work in the country and In this way
Dr. Clark is pioneering. "Every'speak
er on tho program brought great in

of them but what filled his place on
the program in a manner passing an
ticipation of the audience.
The Laymen's parade at 8 o'clock
Sunday moaning was a great success,
there being nearly 200 in line, march
ing until the Sunday school hour.
The convention has taken a decid
ed forward look for next year In two
particulars: First, they have decided
to serve the entire county during the
year; they will seek to bring every
Sunday school In touch with at least
ono up-to-date conference. Second,
they will endeavor to hold even a bet

Struck Church Of Christ
Early Saturday Morning
The Worst electrical storm of the
season occurred early Saturday mom
reported from lightning. During the
storm lightning struck the steeple of
of the Vino Street Church of Christ
and tore tho shingles off a portion of
the west side of the steeple. The
lightning then jumped to the center
of tho roof and tore a hole there and
through the celling of the church and
down the chandelier in the central
part of the church. Quite a largo siz
ed hole was made in the root and the
Engine House Struck
A remarkable occurrence took place
during tho electrical storm about five
o'clock Saturday morning when a bolt
of lightning struck the flag pole on the
roof of the Second ward engine house
and patrol station, splintering it and
throwing fragments of the wood into
neighboring yards. With the excep
tion of the destruction of the flag pole,
no other damage was done to the
building or its occupants. The re
markable fact concerning the light
ning stroke was that the patrolman
and his family were sleeping In an
upstairs room Just under the pole
when It was struck and were not even
disturbed in their sleep.
Tree Shattered
During the electrical storm, light
ning struck a large oak tree In the
Ferenbaugh grove, just west of tho
city, and tore the tree out by the
roots. The tiee was also shattered al
most to kindling wood.
