Curtain 8:30 sharp. At the Grand Opera House. Friday, Feb. 12, 1909. 57 it was decided to extend Rev. Chal lenner a call to the pastorate of the Windsor church and that a reasonble length of time was to be given him In which to accept or reject the call. Rev. Challenner while here made a very favorable. Impression, loth as" a pulpit orator and a pleasant' gentleman. He will probably notify the Windsor church some time within the next week or ten days of his decision in the matter." With reference to the above the Eagle regrets to chronicle the fact that on yesterday Rev. Challenner ten dered his resignation as pastor to bis congregation and to his church board, and after prayerful consideration, it was accepted. The-) resignation is to i be effective on Mereh 1st, or as soon thereafter as the vacancy can be filled. The Eagle feels sure that It but voices the sentiment of the entire clt- j izenship of Bryan, and especially of I the Christian community, in saying j that this action of Rev. Challenner Is deeply regretted. He has done a great work in Bryan. His church has been more than doubled in membership, lias been revived into a new spiritual life, and a splendid new church edi fice erected, that will stand through the coming ages as a monument to his zeal, and the zeal of his loyal mem bership. His going will be a great loss to the religious life of Bryan. A pulpit committee to enga?o an other pastor was appointed as follows: J. J. Ray, chairman; Geo. A. Adams Joe B. Reed, L. D. McGee, J. T. McGee and W. T. James. Th followins; committee was rp-j loInted to draft suitable regolmion j on Rev. Challenner's connection wlt'i ! the church, his resignation and An parture: J. I. Barron, W. S. Collar 1 and Guy Kittle. be entered In the contest The premium list Is long and very valuable. Quite a lot of cash Is offered, and the many premiums donated by Bryan's progressive merchants are all valuable and the competition for them will be sharp. Not only that, but the exhibits themselves will open the eyes of a great many people. They will be utterly surprised at the splendid spec imens of corn shown, not dreaming that Brazos county is capable of pro ducing such corn as will be exhibited on that day. In this connection the Eagle "would direct attention to the fact that at the San Antonio fair last fall, Mr. Jeff Steele of Milllcan won the first premium, twenty-five dollars in casn, lor tne nest individual corn exhibit in a contest open to the world. This proveg that Brazos county can grow good corn and this is the object of the corn show, to stimulate the raising of this great cereal, the most Important cf all our crops. Our farmers will never prosper as they should until they learne to raise all the corn they use. The crop of last year was far above the average. and yet more than five thousand dol-! lars worth of corn is now being shii ped Into Bryan every ;nonth. The farmers need this money for other things, and when they are properly educated in the science of corn grow ing, it will be theirs. Everybody come to the show Wed rfesday. H?lp to make it a great suc cess and let's all join forces In an 1 effort to bring about a new era In agri cultural conditions in Brazos county. The serious illness of Mr. Louis Reed at Ballinger, mentioned In these columns some days ego, terminated fatally at 4 o'clock yesterday after noon when death cameto relieve him of his sufferings. He had been ill with pneumonia some time and his sister, Mrs. T. J. Preston and Miss Edith Preston went to his bedside one day last week. His friends hoped to have better news from him, but their hopes were in vain. Mr. Reed was 48 years, six months and eleven days of age. He was born at the old Reed home five miles of Bryan, and was reared In this county. He was a good, true man, and enjoyed the confidence and esteem of all who knew him. He leaves no family of his own, but has living in this county two brothers, Messrs. Wilson Reed and Lee Reed, and two sisters, Mrs. Geraldlne Kelly and Mrs. T. J. Preston. The remains will be shipped here and be laid to rest in the Reed grave yard at the old home place. Owing to the uncertainty of the time of arrival, the hour of the funeral cannot yet be announced. Mr. T. J. Preston left last night for Temple to meet the funeral party.
