''After five years faithful ser

In consideration of his age and
rather frail health, the elders

While Dr. Thompson does not

in the ministerial' work, supply
ing churches as his health will
During Dr. Thompson's pas
toral charge, there have "been 90
accessions to the church. The
church is left with a membership
of 125 and is in a healthy con
dition generally. The church is
out of debt with a few dollars in
the building fund. The Ladies'
Aid Society has a fund ot $150
ahead. The Home Missions con
tributions the past year were
larger than ever before and the
Sunday school is flourishing.

born in Ohio and educated at
Middlebury College, New Eng
land. He also attended the

riage ceremonies performed. To
date Dr. Thompson m has united
1283 couples. West Side Enter
prise. Dr. Thompson is deservedly
popular in this city where he
served so many years and so ably
filled the pulpit ot the Presby

sincere friends in this city who
devoutly hope that his declining
years may be fruitful of naught
save perfect contentment and the
best that earth can afford.

wherever they appear. , They
sing those old negro melodies,
plantation and jubilee songs
which we all love. :"
Dr. Perry, pastor of M. E.
church, Whitewater, Wis., says
ot them: "The Original Dixie
Jubilee Singers gave a delightful
concert in out church. They

pass, beautiful expression and

Will Carry Coos County.
The Myrtle Point Enterprise
has this to say:
"The Enterprise said last week
that 'Hawley will carry this com
munity almost solidly.' G. N.
Farrin of Marshfield, writing to
the Coast Mail, says this state
ment is entirely erroneous. Mr.
Farrin must have misunderstood
for what does he know about
the stength of the various candi
dates in this precinct? Anvhow,
we are going to fgive him credit
for thinking that we had refer
ence to the county, when we re
ferred simply to this end of it.
If Mr. Farrin thinks Hawley
won't carry this precinct solidly
he will have his eyes opened
April 20. We haven't heard of
a single Tooze supporter in this
precinct and are , inform ed by
those who know that Hawley will
get a big vote at Coquille and
Bandon and not a few at Marsh
field. He will carry the county."
