Harman, organist The Fourth Universallst Society has made wonderful strides in tho short period of Its existence. It was organized In February, 1685, and its increase was rapid. The society held its first services In Kidgewood Hall, but the lncrenso in tho number of Its members, duo to the ability and energy of the Rev. Abram Conklin, and other circumstances, compelled the Board of Trustees to look about for another and more commodious place of worship. Then it was decidod to build a church, and the money was soon forthcoming. The society is now In 'possession of a new house of worship, and it3 future is bright with tho promise of usefulness and succoes.
