Star and The j Sentinel for $1.50 per year. j - The indications ,are that there' will be an early spring. The first and 1 most reliable sign ol spring is the annual report of the killjng of the peach biuls. made by horticult ural ex perls. And they have done it. This is also said to be a sign of a good peach crop-but that is knocking. The Missouri Valley Horticultural society met n Kansas City recently, and the encouraging news comes from that body that there will be very few peaches in the Missouri Valley and adjacent territory. This always hap pens just before good weather sets in. . A CENTENNIAL EVENT. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) celebrate what is known as their one hundredth anniversary at Pittsburg, Pa., October 11-19, next. It was near there, at Washington, Pa., Thomas Campbell published a docu ment known as the "Declaration and Address" in the autumn of 1809, which has become historic. The prin ciples embraced in this document led to a movement that has resulted in the existence of the "Christian Church," which now numbers about one million and a quarter members, with six thousand ministers, about forty schools and colleges, etc. It is a growing Church and is one of the most aggressive religious bodies in all the world. There is great activity in all these churches now, preparatory to the celebration in Pittsburg. One chief aim is to raise $400,000 for Foreign Missions. The special day set apart for this purpose is March 7. All the Christian Churches are expected to make a contribution on that day to preach the gospel throughout the whole world. The Church in this com munity is taking an active interest in this matter, and it may be depended upon to make a creditable showing. The Christian Church has missions in Japan, China, India, Hawaii, Cuba, Africa, Norway, Sweden and Den mark. It has one hundred and sixty American missionaries in these coun tries, and an army of more than five hundred native preachers and helpers. The Church conducts eighteen hos pitals in foreign lands, and last year treated more than one hundred and twenty-seven thousand patients. Sixty two schools and colleges were sup ported, with an attendance of nearly four thousand. And besides, it feeds and clothes and houses and educates more than four hundred orphans. The membership in these lands now num bers more than ten thousand, and the value of property is about five hun dred thousand dollars. Much of the Centennial celebration depends upon the offering, March 7, which is really a Centennial event. If that is successful, as is expected, then it is believed that two millions of dol lars will be raised for all missions and benevolences before the year closes. This is the mark that has been set. The gathering in Pittsburg in Octo ber will doubtless be the greatest re ligioug event in modern times. Halls are being provided to seat no less than thirty thousand people at one time. Fully fifty thousand delegates are expected to be present, perhaps more. There will bepresentatives from England, Scotland, Scandinavia, Australia, Japan, and perhaps other countries. Altogether, there will be about three hundred speakers during the Centennial celebration. They will be among the leading thinkers and orators of the country. Eminent scholars, financiers, politicians and men in all the walks of life will be in attendance. Craig and Vicinity. From Oraig Leader. Feb. 5,1909. The called session of the Meth odist quarterly conference which met here last Monday, concluded the pur chase of what is commonly known as ''the Bob Means property" adjoining the-church property on the south, for a parsonage. The consideration was $900. Arch Sharp. Ora Scrivner. T. B. Ward, Sr., T. F. Pebly. J. R Nauman, R. M. Price and C. A. Doughty are directly interested in a scheme for dyking against overflow from Little Tarkio immediately adjacent to town. Altogether they own 470 acres on the right side of the creek which would be protected. During the revival which began January 10 and closed January 31. 70 heretofore unconverted persons pro fessed Christ under the ministrations of Rev. L. M. Aldridge. pastor of the Methodist church at this place. Of this number 44 have joined the Meth odist church. 17 the Christian church and seven the I resbyterian church of this place, leaving two who have no especial church affiliations at this time. II. B. Lawrence put upon the market and sold at St. Joseph this week 45 head of steers which aver aged 1,120 pounds. They were na tives, picked up here and there in this and Atchison counties when calves and all were two years old and past. They were corn fed and had been fed for fat but 60 days. They brought $5 per cwt. straight and could have been made into prime heavies had Mr. Lawrence cared to have kept them. The possible sequel to the inroads the river is making northwest of town will be the const met ion of a series of winy; jetties opposite the Henry Vonderschmidt.. the C. C. Ho-J grefe and Henry Volhners farms. To. speak of "'the Vonderschmidt place') is almost irony now. as less than to acres ol the old farm remain. One and perhaps two of the jellies would j be built off that front. W C. Ho-1 grefe has plans and estimates pre-, pared by a lirm of river contractors, j and they call for the expenditure of. $1(5.570. The jetty or pier fartherot upstream would be 100 feet long, the; next downstream 200 feet, the third: 400 feet. Lands For Sale.
