tho members of tho M . E. church.
Sixty people wore prosont, not Includ

pleasing one, In spite of tho fact that
n tinge of sadness was felt by all
over tho fact that It was perhaps
tho last timo this Jovial nnd entertain
ing family would participate with
their St. Johns friends in n social
gathering. As a tokon of the high
regard In which Ilev. Young und his
family aro regarded by tho members
here they were presented with n
beautiful Axmtnster rug. Misses Ha
zel and Josephine woro also presen
ted each with a handsome fruit tray
in recognition of their valuable servi

The revival meeting is still in
progress and confessions are being
made almost every iiijjht. Forty
additions have been made to the
church and many more nre deeply
intercslel. It is now expected
that the meetings will close about
a week or ten days hence. To
night Rev. Olson will deliver a
lecture on the lives of Joseph and
Moses illustrated with moving
pictures and accompanied by illus
trated song?. Our people should
by all means see these pictures, as
they bring the scenes out as the
lecturer describes them in a way
that makes it very realistic. The
song service is excellent and the
sermons are thought-inspiring even
though you may not at all times
agree with the preacher. All peo
ple of whatever faith are invited to
come and hear.

Keep Bright and You

Klcclric Light is the magnet that draws trade. The
bright store is the "hypnotic eye" of business. People can
no more resist the attraction ol a brilliant, Klectrieully lighted
store than they can resist the elat ion call of u brass Imnd.
Is your competitor with the l'.leetrically illuminated show
windows, bright interior and sparkling Klcclric Sign getting
nn advantage over you? The moth never Mutters around thu
uulighted candle! Up-to-date stores nowadays consider
shop-window lighting it necessity, whether they remain open
nfter dark or not. Competition forces modern method.
A show window brilliantly illuminated with Klectrie
light will make many a sale "the night before." Hlcctric
light compels attention, makes easy the examination of your
display, shows goods in detail aud fabrics in their tiiiecolom.
Aud don't neglect the Klectrie Sign. It is soliciting
" tomorrow's" business every moment it is lighted burning
your name in (lie public mind. It is u solicitor that never
becomes weary never stops work - costs little.
