Attendance at Sunday school was
1:55, fairly good considering conditions
Amount contributed, $5.t’>0. New
members received S. In the absence
of Supt- C. C. Calhoun, W. P. Murrah
assistant, led the Sunday school.
A large crowd heard the pastor’s
splendid sermon at 11 o’clock on “The
Great Commission.” The congrega
tion seemed eager to take in all that
was said and all seemed hungry for
the gospel after a month’s staying at
home on the Sabbath.
The Kpworth League had a fair at
tendance at the l’> o’clock service. The
service was led by Miss Griswold, this
being her farewell meeting with the
League. The program was splendid
and the subject “Consecration,” was
thoroughly discussed by a number of
good talkers. Special music was also
enjoyed.
At the evening preaching service, a
very strong and effective sermon was
delivered by the pastor. “Paul’s Vis
ion’’ which was especially interesting
to the young people, as well as the
older, furnished a means of drawing
a number of present day lessons
therefrom. A good crowd was in at
tendance.

Sunday school again opened at the
Baptist church yesterday morning
with 52 present. Attendance low.
It is earnestly requested that all

There were good congregations to f
hear the two good sermons preached
by l)r. Williams at the Presbyterian
■ lurch .\estei lay. The sermon in
the morning was on “Faith,” and in
the evening on "The Pyramids of
Egypt." He reminded us that “Hod
is fn control," and that one of the
most useless things in the world is
a “pessimistic Presbyterian."
The getting together again was
very pleasant, the day beautiful, the
church attractive with autumn foliage
and bright flowers, and friends ling
ered for a word of greeting after the
services.
The new superintendent and or
ganist, and other officers were “on
time" for Sunday school. The at-1
tendance was S3, and the contribu
tion $13.32. Let us have tit least 100
present next Sabbath. Strangers and
visitors cordially invited and wel
comed.
THE \S \R WORK < \MP \IH.\
The people of the United States are
asked to raise, for war work among '
the soldiers, $170,.".00,000.00. Nevada I
county’s part of this is $12,000.00 This 1
will be apportioned among the school1
districts.
It looks as if peace was near; hut
it peace is made large indemnities
will he laid upon Germany, and our
army and that of the allies will likely
have to remain in Germany and Rus
sia from two to four years in order to
collect the indemnities.
1 was in Little Rock last week at a
conference of the managers of this
campaign, and men from the front
assured us that after the fighting is
r the boys will suffer more from
■ ""O sickness and a lack of some
thing to do. than they do during the
lighting. This money wilT provide
ieligious instruction and entertain
ment for the boys while they are in
foreign countries, and no one should
fail to give upon the ground that the
money will not be needed on account
of the coming of peace. The whole
amount will be expended by next
June. Nothing is too good for the
boys who have won this war.
