E. Church, gave the address of the evening, his text being, "What is man that thou art mindful of him?" The message was well received. He exhorted us to live better and more useful lives in order to help others to see and know of God's great love for us. The fifth Sunday meetings are a gathering of all the churches in order to keep the temperance work before all the people. The ministers of the churches have responded in a wonderful way in giving the addresses for our pro- grams, for which we are thankful. The next meeting will be held at the M. E.
