There are many men and women in this town whom life apparently has treated unkindly. Without true friends they struggle against odds. Yet the church around the corner is full of men and women anxious to help. h Christianity Means Helpfulness Meet these church people half way. Give them an opportu nity to be your friends. “Come unto me and I will give you rest.” Thus directed the founder of Christianity. His promise stands today. Test it. Crosses which arise in business, in school, in the home are more easily borne if one has accepted the assurance that Jesus Christ is ever ready to help. ATTEND THE METHODIST REVIVAL NOW JUNE P.

I McCRORY IS WINNER OVER GREGORY TEAM The McCrory Base Ball Club went to Gregory yesterday, Thursday, afternoon where they defeated the Gregory nine five to four. For eight long innings it looked as if our boys would not cross the home plate, but they got busy in the ninth and ran in five scores, just one more than the opposing team made during the first inning. Gregory almost took the game in the ninth. There were two outs and the bases full and B. Matkins faced the McCrory hurler hoping to send the ball far into the field and thereby bring in the winning scores. Meadows laid; down a nice one which Matkins met ! with his stick sending the ball over a building in deep left center for what everyone thought was a homer and which woul$ have added four scores to the four Gregory had made in the first inning, but Wilson the McCrory centerfielder, got under the horsehide by making a long run and to the happy j surprise of his mates and the displeasure of the Gregory team and their crowd of en 1 thusiastic fans, the lad came marching in with the ball in his hand.
