Dear brothers and sisters, Christ has commanded us to pray and ask of God our needed blessings, and by obedience we are promised the Lord will not forsake us. Yes he said be would be with us until the end of time in this life, but we have a cross to bear, to be worthy of all divine blessings. He has taught us not to forget the as sembling of ourselves together as some do, therefore it is neces sary to work together for good and the - upbuilding of God's kingdom, and we do feel that in a prayer meeting we can be a light to many, and as we have had a union prayer meeting for some months, we desire to see it prosper, and at Bro. Robert son s revival last year, mauy of us promised him we would not let the good work die, will do all die good we could, in our Sun day School and prayer meeting. Let us not forget the covenant we made with Bro. Robertson, and as Mansfield has taken a de light in the progress of many other things of aditferent nature let us, as a praying community of Mansfield, be delighted in the progress of the spirit of Christ among our mends ana associ ates of this community. There fore let us demonstrate this by coming out to the different pray er meetings and working togeth er for the upbuilding of God's cause. Spiritually yours, H. M. Norcross. P. S. Remember that the reg ular appointment for prayer meeting will be at the church, on Wednesday night, following the place where preaching is held the Sunday before. More Action. In the absence1" of Marshal Strong and Constable Atkisson Wednesday night, the Mayor ind Justice of the Peace ap pointed Mack Davis aud Daunt. vippee special officers, to Iook ifter some suspicious looking haracters who were in or pass lit throuuh Mansfield. Af ti r considerable wat::hing and qiies tioning, it was decided to tak in charge the persons of Joe Olds, M r. Fen ell and a woman wlto gave her name as Grace Ferrell. It was late" learned that Ulas was wanted in Mtn. Grove on a charge; and charges were pre ferred against the Ferrell s, and they are being held in the Hart ville jail for investigation. it developed early Thursday morn ing thataccording to information and pictures in the possession of Sheriff Crewse and Marshal Strong, the woman filled very accurately the description of a woman wanted in Knoxville, Tenn., on a charge for a crime. Officers who took her in charge say she had on her person some dope" and an instrument lor administering a hypodermic. Officers Maka Raid. The officers of Wright and Douglas Counties, Sheriff Crewse and his deputies, Joe Dennis, and John Pryor; Sheriff Givans and a deputy, and Mar shal Strong and Constable Atkis son, of Mansfield, made a raid last Wednesday night, down in the hills of Douulas County, on the hoid of Tarbutton creek, and succeeded in finding about three barrels of mash where astill had been operated for several days The still bad been removed t few hours previous and it was not located, but the officers found plainly where it hud been en trenched in a canyon back in the hill side. They also fouad near theie evidence of where astill had been operated some months ago. Wliite suspicion ana evi .... .. . - j i dene is strong on some certain parties, no arrests have been made. It seemed that guurds among the moon shiners gave signal by gun shots which enab led the operators to make their get-au ay and elude the officers and there bv escape arrest for being "caught with the goods". While no one was caught in this raid, it is nevertheless great vie torvoflawand order and for prohibition enforcement. . Christian Endeavor. C. P. church. Subject Inspiring Lives.
