THEIR NEW CHURCH.
Is Staunch and Cosy Its Dedication
FSnnday, and Without a Debt.
After a half , dozen successive
rainy Sundays, the sun rose clear
and bright, turning to crimson ban
ners the soft gray clouds that ush
ered in December 4th, the day set
for the dedication of the new Sitnp-
son chapel, a $2,000 church, which-
takes the place of the old one built
in the Belknap settlement -during
the winter of '61-2.
- Filty years ago last ;September,
in a little log school house, about i
mile from the site of the present
building. Bishop Simpson held the
second M. E. conference ever held
in Oregon, and in memory -and hon
or of that truly " great . . man, the
name, Simpson Chapel is still re
tained. ' ' '''A'
Dr. Rader of Portland, who was
to have preached the dedication
sermon, was quarantined at home
because of scarlet fever, but for
tunately Dr. Rockwell - of East
Portland, was secured to take his
The house was filled with people
when the pastor,' Rev. Zimmerman
began tne services by announcing
a hymn which was followed by an j
earnest uplifting . prayer' by Dr.
Rockwell, who at its close, read i
the 43 psalms, that beautiful trib
utc to the temple of Ziou..
he choir with Mrs. , M. M
W41tz at the organ, and Dr. Cathey
as director, then rendered in an
impressive manner, that fine dedi
caii m anthem, beginning, ''Except,
the Lord build the house they la
bor n vain that build it." -' After
wh ch Dr. Rockwell gave a very in
teresting and helpful address from
the textr "The ? Church of God,
which he hath Purchased with his
own Blood." 1 In a broad minded
way. Dr. Rockwell, spoke, not ' of
his own denomination, but . of the
fouhdatioa principles which under
lie every true church, and all right
living, and which alone can give
either churches or individuals the
stability that endures. , y
At the close of the sermon, Mr.
L. N. Edwards made a statement
of the. financial condition of the
church. It was shown that 'after
receiving $250 promised by the
church extension fund, there would
remain due to complete the base
ment and put in a furnace at a cost
ot $100. Donations were called
for and in a few minutes $265, was
subscribed, $25 of which was, a gift
from the membets of, the ; M;" E.
church of Corvallis.
In the beautiful service of the
M. Jfi. cnurcn, tne Duuaing was
then formally dedicated to the serv
ice of God, after which the audience
repaired to the unfinished basement
where a most bountiful .lunch and
hot coffee was served to about two
hundred people. The new church
is a thine-of beauty and doubtless
will be a joy forever. It is a strict
ly up-to-date building, mod era v in
all its appointments, and though
comparatively , small, is , large
enough tor the needs ot tne com
munity. The workmanship both
within and without, and from foun
dation to spire, is of the very best,
and the painstaking effort and self-
denial required for its completion,
deserve much praise.

1 A Peculiar Ornament. .
" Berlin has probably one of the most
peculiar ornaments for a reading room
that has ever been seen in a similar
position in a civilized country. This is
a gravestone which stands, large and
massive, in one CfcrnerNof a small room.
It' is not only a gravestone, but is in
its legitimate position at Ihe head of
a grave The history of Its location in
the house is interesting It was not
put up in the house, but the house was
built around the stone. Its original
position was' in the burial grounds in
the churchyard at St Hedwig's.
