Christmas Services.
The ftstiral serrices at all the churches
in Butler, Christina.- Eve and Christinas
> evening, were well attended and brought
■ snnshine to the heart* of all the children.
1 ; The following note- hare b< -n handed to
1 I as for publication.
The Christmas treat at the Presbyterian
i chnreh wa# held on Chri.-tmas evening at
r half pai-t rix. In addition to the usual ex
| ercii-e-. distribution of candy, etc., a
• Christmaa cantata was given, the principal
parts being taken by Mr?. B. P. Scott.
Mary Wick, Lon Ru.-sell. Car! I-eighner.
Joe Heinemin. Annie Kedic, and Gardner
Lowry. It was a complete success, and
theimmen-e crowd fully appreciated it.
At the German Catholic church the pro
gram given in the CITIZEN - last week was
fully carried through and was enjoyed by
large crowds that assembled to hear it.
The U. P. Church held their entertain
ment on Christmas eve. A full program
wait carried out. and candy and nuts dis
tributed to those present. The mite boxes
were opened and found to contain about
SOO, which fsum is intended for the West
Lnd Mission Chapel. The affair was a
complete success.
The elaborate decorations of the German
Lutheran Church have come to be a mat
ter of no sui prise to the attendants there,
but this year they lairly outdid themselves.
A very complete program was gone
through, and a ple&sant time bad by all.
The M. E. congregation held their treat
on Thursday evening, and The program
was well selected and performed. The
usual candy and nuts, etc , were dis
tributed, and everybody n.ir as happy as
everybody should have been.
The .Sunday School oi the First English
Lutheran Church held its festival of the
Nativity on Christmas eve, btc. -4th. j
Always tastily decorated on holiday occa- j
sions.the church this year presented a very j
pretty appearance. A corps of busy work i
ertt, assisted by Mr. G. A. Miller a - deco
rator artist spent several days previous in
in beautifying the building. The w ills
were adorned with mottoes taken from
Isaiah's prophecies of the Christ; festoon
ing* of laurel starting from the keystone
of the arch above the chancel were urrang
ed gracefully through the cherch to the
gallery in the rear, and as fine a tree as
wa* ever net up in Butler, ornamented
with a profusion of Christmas emblems oc
cupied the chancel and gave completeness
to the scene. Beginning at seven o'clock
with the singing, by the choir, of Kirrie
White's "When Marshalled on Their
Nightly Plain," the exercises, consisting
of a service of song, responsive scripture
reading*, recitations by varies members of
the school and an address by the pastor,
continued until a few minutes before eight
when the tree was lighted and the gifts
were di stributed. Each member of the
school and all the children of the congre
gation received a box of candy and an or
ange, Candies were also passed around
on tray* to ail present. Teachers and
scholars exchanged gifts, and numerous
other [ireeerjt* of a more private nature
were distributed. Jhiring this part of the
exercise* Mr. Harry Klingler Kprung a
most agreeable (.nrprire on the pastor of
church, liev. Titzel, by presenting him in
the name of the congregation with an en
velope containing a subscription for a set
of the Encyclopu-dia ISrittanica. About a
month ago Rev. Titzel had entered hi*
name with 11. C. Heine man &, Son, as a
subscriber and learning of this the congre
gation took up the subscription anil pre
sented it a* their Christmas greeting—a
gift highly appreciated and prized by the
recipient not only on account of its value
but also because of the gr»od will which
prompted it* bestowal.
The collection lilted at the exercise- as a
Christma* thank offering was devoted to
the Orphans' Home at JCelienople.
Throughout the services were orderly, de
Tout, and very enjoyable.
The Christma* Service in Bethany Re
formed Church was interesting throughout.
The church was tastily decorated with
evergreen* and the tree with its ornaments
was beaotful when lighted; but the most
attractive feature was a mina'.ure church.
The children sang and recited remarkably
well. The most interesting part of their
program was a service entitled Itnmantiel,
"God With Us" by nine children and
"Bringing Gift* to Christ" by thirteen. A
very appropriate address was made to the
children by Rev. Limberg. Each chili] re
ceived a treat and after uniting in the
Lord's Prayer and singing "Praise God,"
all went houie rejoicing that .Merry Christ
mas hail come again. The offering was
unusually large.

A Plain Statement.
Now that the Holiday rush is over we
are ready tor the buyer who has a house
or l oom to furnish and wants a large and
new stock, experienced salesmen and low
prices to select from. If the buyer mere
ly wants a chair, a desk, or any of the
countless bits of furniture to be found in
our stores, the principle remains the same
and the wise buyer acts accordingly.
We haven't a piece of furniture in the
store that's been in stock over two months,
and we haven't a piece that we would be
ashamed to offer at our prices in any city
iu the land, Our more expensive articles
are rich, stylish and offered at low prices.
Our cheaper goods are well selected, and
the very best for the money that can be
gotten anywhere. ' Mark this.
There are many who have not yet been through our
stores. We want you all to look in. It does not matter one
bit whether you are buying or not, a look through our store
is an advertisement of it, and we pay big money to the news
papers every year for worse ones. Why there's no advertise
ment like an inspection ot our stock. Your eye is the best
salesman we want.
