Now we find Inscriptions Inscriptions on two old tombstones at Krall's meeting house as given above, the wife's name given aa Mary Kreider Krall. We regard Knoll as a slight departure from the correct spelling. It will be noticed that Rev. Isaac gives the same Christian name that is on the tombstone. It will also be noticed that that wife Is of the age of John's children, and there seems to be enough space for her in the year 1743. If you can upset our conclusion, you are welcome. And now parenthetically we shall give a short account of MARY KREIDER KRALL. Mary Kreider, afore, in. Abraham Krall, afore, who on April 26, 1794, bought a 215 acre farm of Jacob Thoma, at Horst's Mill, which had been bought by his father, Durst Thoma, from the Penna, Feb. 4, 1762. Abraham Krall on April 23, 1799, conveyed this farm to his son, John, who by endorsement on back of deed Jan. 1, 1846, conveyed it to his son Benjamin,. and this 1799 deed is the last one made of the property. Benjamin got all the land except three-fourth of an acre "on which a meeting house stands, and which has been sold and conveyed for that purpose." purpose." Anna Krall, daughter of Benjamin, still resides on the farm. After ' her decease it becomes the property of all of Benjamin'n descendants. descendants. Abraham and Mary Kreider Krall likely had but one child. Abraham wrote h(s family record In German, which" translated is somewhat as fol lows: "In year 1767, the 15th day September, in 4 hours afternoon, is to me my son John Krall born, in sign Twins." "In year 1773 fho fOth" day September September is to me my daughter (daugb- ter-in-law) Elizabeth Gemennin born in sign .Cancer." Then the won John wrote: "in year 1801 the 22nd day November that I John Krall and Elizabeth Krallln) Genienniu, that to me was married. "In year 1803 the 7 day January in 7 hour morning Is to me my daughter Maria Krallin born in sign of the Lion. "In year 1810 the 9 day April In 4 hour morning Is to me my son John Krall born In sign Twins. "In year 1813 in 9 day May In 4 hours morning IB to me my son Ben- to them in age in the United Brethren Brethren ministry. These things must be true. Behm had been a M«nnonlte preacher before he became ono of the founders of the United Brethren, so for a number of years he and Martin Martin were together Mennonlte preachers. preachers. Inasmuch they camp together as United Brethren, they must have been kindred spirits In the, old Mennonite Mennonite fold. Both wanted more life, more manifestation of the Spirit. The separation from the Mennonites, doubtless, was gradual, as for awhile they held meetings in the same houses. Rev. Martin Is mentioned as a coflaborer with Rev. Henry Landis and Rev. Felix Light. Rev. Martin Is said to be burled in the little private family cemetery on his farm, but we were unable to find the marker to his grave. The old family cemetery on the Lorenzo Laudermllch farm wns not far away, but that likely had been strictly Mennonlte. Perhaps Rev. Martin wanted to sleep his long sleep in a sfrlctly United Brethren Ixnl, and so started a separate cemetery on his own farm. His grandson, Rev. Christian S. Kreider, was the founder founder of Salem United Brethren church at Ninth and Church streets, the mother U. B. church of Lebanon; and the grandson may be said to hfive erected a living monument to tho memory of his grandfather: but it seems to us that it would be in place for tho spiritual children ot Rev. Martin Kreider to erect In Ebenozer cemetery a becoming monument. It is written of him: "And of his success as n minister wo shall bo allowed to Bay that in each generation generation of his descendants can bo found more than ono minister, even down to the fourth generation, that sinco his generation there are rising of nearly a hundred of his offspring preaching the Gospel of the lowly Nazarone; and while all are not of tho church of the United Brethren, tho major part of them are."

Take this for what it is Looming Up Large Harry Kurtz, tho popular North Cornwall auctioneer, ifl putting forth his best, efforts to muko his projected supper for tho "Overseas boys" a success on Saturday, August 9.

It IB for their benefit that tho supper la held and is projected by a man who has a heart as 'big as he Is himself. Bolshevik Hungary is Ready To Battle the Entire World (Continued from Ps.ga One). The Religious Career of Rev. Martjn It is said of Christiana Kreider, m. John William Early, that she was the daughter of a Mennonite preacher, who served in his office sixty years. Martin under consideration' this Mennonite preacher, died In 1826, so he was called to the ministry about 1766; or being born in 1740, at about the age of 26 years. 1766 was quite awhile before organization of the United Brethren church, BO Martin may have labored one-half of his years in the ministry for the Mennonites. Rev. Christian Newcomer, a United Brethren father, writes: "May 27, 1797. This day a sacramental meeting meeting is to commence at Martin Kreider Kreider 'e near Lebanon. Brother Crum delivered the flrst discourse." Under date of October 7, 1797, Newcomer continues: "This forenoon we had a blessed meeting at Brother Martin Kreider's; in the afternoon we preached at Lebanon." We are informed that Martin Kreider's Kreider's was a regular preaching place of the early United Brethren, and so continued until Light's meetinghouse was built in 1820, at Seventh and Lehman streets. This meetinghouse W&& bul|t by the Mennonites, but used In common by Mennonites and United Brethren, the line of demarcation demarcation at first seems not eo closely After personally witnessing the whole course of the revolution in Budapest, I am able to state this with authority. The food situation throughout Hungary Is critical. Budapest is virtually starving. The country is torn by Internal dfssentlons. Bela. Run le confronted with the problem of raising an army from a people whose morals is at its lowest ebb. and equipping it with arms and munitions that are practically non* ejlstent. Should the expected allied offensive offensive fail to materialize, there is one other factor that could bring about the Boleheviki's down-fall-— a con» certed attack by the diversified anti- soviet governments. The Red arnly is prepared to fight the Rumanians aftd Czechr3-—a&d. probably could wage a successful warfare against them — but it has no stomach for battling battling its brothers in the White Army. At present the White forces are scattered and without competent leaders or a definite objective. Entire Entire divisions of the Red forces, however, have served formal notice that they refuse to flght the It IB White army. A num'ber O f work' men's battalions were disarmed and returned to the factories because of this defiance. An Allied offensive undoubtedly would result in an immediate crisis in the soviet government. Nevertheless, Nevertheless, I believe the order which has so far been maintained by the Reda in Budapest would continue. But if the White, army were to attack it is certain the streets would run red with blood, since there are teas of thousands of bitter anti-Bolshevika in the capital whp would welcor»e such a signal for a counter-revolt. These same persona could be cotnt- ed upon to resist an Allied offensive because of racial pride. There is a strong political movement movement against the Soviets under way already, fostered by the powerful trades unions. At the same time tho Red leaders are growing more and more radical.
