The Kreiders have and are playing an important role in this, district. We have stated that preceding Henry as Bishop was Rev. Jacob K. Kreider, of Faifland. So a short ac- connt of this district will be pertinent and likely of Interest.' The membership of the District IB 810, this, as in the Church of the Brethren, doubtless includes only bbptlzed adults, or those who out of faith made Intelligent self choice. The duties of the deacons we are told Is about the same as among Brethren, tending tables, caring for sick and poor, and making the yearly church visit to all the members, to ascertain whether they are still In the faith of-the Gospel, and If they have anything to br.ing before the church for consideration. There are four such deacons In this district: David B. Wenget of Falrland, Henry Baum of Palmyra, Enoch McCorkle of Mlddletown, R. D. 3, and Henry Gartnan of Harrlsburg. The preachers of the district are: Rev. Jacob D. Books, of Cleona, Father was not only a preacher be!ore him, but a bishop; Rev. Jacob B. Funk, also of Cleona, and partly a Kreider; Rev. Jacob L.
