lOaiion ever slnca the
-T.-us projected, and for many
jtars the ciasa was included in the
Drowusviile circuit, the parsonage be-i
lug located at llrownsvllle. The mem
bii-ship ot the Ltdmnoti class being
small, the chapel of the academy Vaa
used by them, for many years, fv the
purjHo of pubiio worship.
In the year 1S83 Hev. J.M. Bweeney
was appointed pastor of the Browns
vine circuit. He found the Lebanon
charge In a very unsatisfactory condl
tion, and fat once set about trying to
remedy it. lie determined that, with
God's help, there should be a revival
In Lebanon; so In November, 1885, he
announced that there would be week
of prayer, without any preaching.
The prayer mcctingn were held at pri
vale houses every day for a week. The
church was revived and put in work
lug order, denominational limn were
laid aside, all took hold with a will
and there were some bright conver
sions during that week; then the re
vival was commenced at the academy
aud carried on for about alx weeks, re
sulting In more than 100 conversions.
Several ministers assisted Itev
Sweeney lu the work, prominent
among them being Itev. Shore
1 ud, who labored very effectively In
the revival, and who subsequently
went to Africa as a missionary and
In the year 18S8 the Lebanon class
wss set olT as a m-pa rats station and
Itev. V. M. Btarr was appointed pastor,
During the pastorate of Itev. Htarr it
xvas determined to build a bouse of
worship In Icbanon, and a committee
was appointed to select a sit and to
solicit subscriptions for that purpose,
Two lota were purchased and arrange
ments made for bulldln. In the
prlng and summer of 1837 the stone
foundation was laid, aud in the fall of
the ssme year the frame of the house
was erected and inclosed. During the
pregres3 of this work. Iter. Walton
bklpworth was appointed to this
charge, and as there waa no suitable
house for him to occupy, the members
of the class volunteered to furnish ma
terial aud work, and in a short while
a cosy parsonage was erected, the La
dles' Aid Society contributing toward
the furnishing of the building. Rev.
Sklpworth took hold with m will and
helped the work along.
In the summer and fall of 1659 the
work on the building 'was pushed to
completion, and Dec. 30 was set for
ledioation. In the meantime the La
lies Aid Society, to whom be all boner
and praise, was not Idle. By their
own exertions, after assisting with the
parsonage, they raised the necessary
means to purchase some beautiful
chandeliers and other lamps, three
handsome chairs for the pulpit, and
carpet for the pulpit, altar and alsl a
of the church. The church also found
many kind friends lu Portland, East
Portland, Eugene alid elsewhere, wh ,
hrough the influence of Bev. H. 1
Wilson and Itev. C. A. McDonald,
were induced to present the church
with a fiue bell, a nice organ and sev
eral copies of the Hymnal.
On the 30th alt. at 11 o'clock Be v. 8.
I. Wilson prenched a powerful dedi
catory sermon, after which the report
of the trustees was read, showing an
indebtedness of $s6S 60 against the
completed church. Mr. Wilson stated
that it would be impojsiblj to dedicate
the church with that indebtedness
upon it, so a subscription was taken,
and in lesa than half an hour $910 was
subscribed and also a oolleetien of $10
was taken. Itev. 8 P. Wilson, assist

We want to impress on the minds of the people of Leba
non and vicinity that we have without doubt the best line
of Boots and Shoos that has ever been shown in Lebanon,
from tho cheapest to the boat made. There is no use to send
away for goods in this line, as we propose to carry as tine a
ine of sjoods as can be had in the valley; and the prices will
be right, for we have bought them right. If goods can not
be bought at the factories for cash at the right prices, when
under the sun can they be bought right? WE MUST AND
WILL SELL THEM CHEAP.
We will name a few goods, that we are sure are as good
value as can be bought any place:
