Dr. A. W. Holt, the Presbyter
ian state missionary, held 'meetings
in the schoolhouse Saturday night,
Sunday morning and evening and
Monday evening. He announced
Monday evening that subscriptions
to the amount of $535 had been se
cured for building a IJresbyterian
church at ltcnd. and the local can
vas had not been nearly completed
The understanding upon which
these subscriptions were obtained
was that the new church would le
ppfcu to meetings of all religious
denominations, proiestant or Cath
olic, when not needed by the Pres
byterians. It is also expected that
all rcMdunt church members will
afiiliatc with this Presbyterian
church until such time as their own
churches shall haVe organizations
Here, when clearances from this
Presbyterian church to the other
denominations will be given, as
they may be asked for.
It is not supposed that the official
roster selected Monday night will
be immanent. The names immed
iately available for the panose of
putting the organization completed
were taken. As soon as the ad
justment can be made the organiza
tion will Le broadened by getting a
wider representation of the com
munity tit the Iwurd of trustees.
Since Monday night 50 more
have been subscribed. "Subscrip
tions are not to be paid until work
011 the structure is in progress.
There is assurance that the Prcsby

scribe hlwrally, but that subscrip
