Our spacious Christian Church could not even furnish standing room to the throng that gather ed together to witness the ser vice of farewell to the two very dear pastors about to leave Rev. W. A. Hatch of St. Jude and Rev. Russel B Briney, in whose church the service were held. The music of the evening was furnished by the various choirs of the city assisted by a male quartette and a ladies' quarette. All the members of the Min isters Alliance, with the excep tion of Rev. W. R. Anderson, who was out of the city, were present. The mantle of the Presidency of this Alliance has fallen from Dr. Hatch's shoul ders to those of Rev. H. H. Johnson, and the latter presid e over the 'meeting in a most pleasing manner. His opening remarks were well receiveu. and all his hearers regret with him "to see Bro Hatch leave because he has been with us so long a time, and Bio. Briney because he has been with us so short a time." A most impressive prayer, of fered by the Rev. Dr. J. R Pen tuff, was followed by the read ing by Rev. A. B. Book, of the Scripture lesson for the even ing. I Dr. Hatch, when called on, responded in bis ever happy maimer, tie inouigea in a lew reminiscences of his sixteen years residence with us. telling kin a few well chosen words ot ty, which he had found existing here. Bro. Briney followed, stating that he had come In a storm, and seemed liable to leave in a stiii m but that he was glad to I say that a perfect calm had at tended his ministry of two years in Monroe City He refer red to Dr. Hatch in a most lov ing manner, saying tnat al though in vears the oldest mem- ber of the Alliance, the Dr. pos sessed as youthful a spirit as t he youngest. Rev. .1. II. RitTe of the Grace Baptist church then spoke of the kindly relations which had always existed between him self and the departing brethren. Rev. Read then ad dressed After the singing of the clos ing hymn the congregation bow ed their heads while Dr. Hatch pronounced the final benedic tion. As Dr. Hatch has accepted a call to St. Louis, and Bro. Brin ey one as State Evangelist in Mississippi, they are both about to enter upon larger fields of duty The short stay of the lat ter with us. is regretted not on ly by the people of his own church, but also by the many other friends he has made in the two years he has spent in our ' midst. Dr. Hatch, during his long pastorate has become so endeared to the people of the entire community that general sadness is felt at his departure. With a few exceptions, at his own church, with whom he has labored so lovingly, faithfully and successefully for the past sixteen years are almost heart broken at the breaking of the Monte Black Squirrel.

When Dr. Hatch and Bro. Briney take there bodies away from Monroe they are not gone. The influ ences which they have exerted will live on. They have touch ed a great many people in this town and in them will continue to live. When I came here two years ago Dr. Hatch calied be fore we were settled. His kindly genial manner attracted me. He has had an influence over me. In one line that in fluence has been marked. He lives and will live in my character. By his influence he has become a part of the warp of my life. Two years ago I met Bro. Briney almost at the beginning of his work here. We have been together a great deal. I know him as few men know him. He will live in me. and his life will be shown in my life. So in all the people these two men have met they will con tinue to live, and eternity can only reveal the work they have done. Christianity is love be cause "God is love" and God is the author of Christianity. Christianity is purity, because God is pure and anything com ing form God is pure. It is this which binds Christian hearts to gether. We will remember these two men after they have gone. We will remember them for theii worth and work. I am sure we will follow them in cur sym pathies and by our prayers. We will thinn of you my friends and brothers in your work to which you go: and will rejoice with you in your successes, and sympatDize witn you in your trials. We will watch with keen est interest any advance you may make. May God richly bless you both and lead you in to a better knowledge of him self, and develope in you such graces as will crown your lives with the richest and most choice blessings.
