Baptists Give Reception
The First Baptist church of
St. Johns held its eighth annual
roll call Wednesday evening,
which was well attended and en
joyed by all. The evening had
a two-fold mission- that of an
nual roll call, and reception for
their new pastor, Rev. Dordman.
The program which was very
pleasing and instructive, was
Opening song by choir and con
gregation, "When the Hoi! is
Called Up Yondnr." This was
followed by prayer by Rev. Mur
phey of the Congreational church,
and Scrinture osson by the pas
tor. After which the combined
chorus of the Evangelical and
Baptist churches sang the an
them. "Praise Ye the rather."
being led in a masterful way by
Mr. Leake of the Evangelical
church. Master Harry Evens
gave a very laughable recitation.
Mr. Holt then gave an address
of welcome to those present, and
Rev. Murphoy welcomed the
now pastor on behalf of the
di lie re nt denominations of the
city, which was responded to by
Rev. Hordman. At thin tune Air.
Leake sang a splendid solo.
Rev. Leonard, who was pastor
lr three years during which
time the church ediiici' was con
structed, delivered the roll call
sermon. During his remarks he
told of the struggles they had
together during iho early years
of the church organization, and
or the pleasures and successes
they had mot with in the work.
and told of the ones he had
learned to love while here who
had already crossed over the riv
or to their great reward. Ho
exhorted the members to do
their duty to the church, to sup
port the pastor by their work
and attendance at all the ser
vices of the church, to give of
their means for the support of
the work, and, above all, to
strengthen the church, thorn-
selves and each other by their
consistent prayers for the sue
cess of the cause.
The roll call was then given
and responded to by the mem
hers present. The program was
closed by singing "tJod Ho With
You," Rev. Leonard pronouuc
ing the benediction.
uoirushtuuniH ot ico cream
and cako were served after the
close of tho program, and the
remainder of tho evening was
spent in pleasant conversation.

The Best Light
At The Lowest Cost
ELECTRIC LIGHT is the most suitable for homes,
offices, shops and other places needing light.
Electricity can be used in any quantity, large
or small, thereby furnishing any required
amount of light. Furthermore, electric lamps
can be located in anyplace, thus affording any
desired distribution ot light.
No other lamns possess these qualifications, there
fore it is not surprising that electric lamps are
rapidly replacing all others in modern establishments.
