The chorus this yaar has a membership of about thirty boys, who have Ailed a large number of engagements. Superintendent, F. R. Powers haa charge of tha chorus work and plans to make it a permanent organisation In order to further promote music lo the local school. % "Hello John, right on deck with your milk this line morning." "Bet your boots, Bill, you'll flnil me Johnny on the spot, shine or rain." "But say, John, we missed your earnest face ut the kirk yesterday morning, and it wasn't raining either." "O shucks, Bill, what's the use to go to church? That'll do for the kids; I've got to make a livin'. Who cares anyhow?" "Besides the preacher does all the prayln' and talkln', and I dare say the sermons ain't worth my hearln'; most all the sermons I ever heard nearly bored me to death, or else Insulted my lntellegence." "Well, John, all I've got to say Is that this is no more preacher's church; Its my church and it's your church too. The preacher himself says so; be doesn't even care to be looked lit with glassy eyes and called the 'reverend'. And he doesn't want to monopolise all tho prayln' and talkln" either. If that's what you want he'll give you u chance mighty quick. Almost every Sunday morning there's a chance for you to pray; and If It don't agree with the 'talk' you can get right up in meeting and try to show a 'better way.' Our church Is the peoples' church, John. You're a dandy good neighbor; you're the kind we need In church; we all care; come along.' And as for the sermons one thing I can say they show conviction and good purpose, and not a few times they do make you think; and when we pray like wo ought, the whole service makes one feel like It was a great thing to be alive, and one wants to live better. Then the first Sunday In each month there is a special sermon for the boys and gtrls.only In Juiie It will be the second Sunday, on Children's Day. I sort o' figure, John that we owe It to our youngsters to set the example and take them to church, or let them take us, once a month at least. You've certainly missed it the last two Sunday mornings. One sermon day for want of tbe usual sort of alarming flux to society's lazy-leisure class. Life is becoming one continual movie thrill. Let dreamers wake up, Join the hoe and broom brigade and go to work." "Youth can afford to walk rather Iir.i, mortgage the future. We ueeil .. t ucw an arlstrooaey of walkers."

"True artstoracts manifest the qualities of a worker ami a friend because of inward character. They do because they are. They are in kingdom because the kingdom of God is within them." "What are worth Is determined by what our Ideas are." (Continued on hack page) RECEPTION HELD SATURDAY NIGHT The annua!
