M. E. church on Jfain street, which
will be reopened OD the 11th of next
month and which has been remodeled
and renovated throughout will be as
pleasant a place for public worship as
any in town. A new spire built
in a modern style and of considerable
height towers heavenward and the new
bell which will be placed in the belfry
this week will shortly send forth peals
of sweet and solemn sounds, calling the
church people to their worship. The
interior of the church presents a very
neat appearance. The old cumbersome
stairway has been changed to an open
and easy entrance, while the gallery in
the rear of the audience chamber has
been removed and the seats in that part
of the room arranged in rows one above
the other. The frescoed ceilings and
walls look tasty and pleasing to the eye
and after the seats are newly painted
and the colored glass windows have
been put in their places, the general ef
fect will be very favorable. Thechurch
is being heated by two large" furnaces.
Tlia basement rooms have also under
gone important changes and will now
ruako splendid Sunday school rooms.
We hope the Christian people of this
place and vicinity will turn out strong
on the day of the rededication and as
sist in wiping out the church debt of
our Jfethodist fsieuds by liberal sub
scriptions. Open your purses.
