(Continued from Page !•) Rev. Talbot was the Rev. Prank C. Morris, who was from Tuscumbia Presbytery, Ala. He was » staunch Presbyterian, however one branch of his family went into the Roman Catholic Church. The church underwent a lot of hardships in its early days. In 1892, 58 members were listed. In 1904 there were still 58 members. In 1914 there were only 25 members, but the diehards kept plugging to maintain a Presbyterian Church in Osceola. After 84 years of existence the membership swelled in 1939 to 91 members. Now on the threshold of their ICOth anniversary the membership is comparatively small compared to that, of the younger churches in Osceola, with a membership now of 135. The members worship in a beautiful Arkansas fieldstone building,! brought here from Bradford, Ark. The church is designed in the style of an English country-side church, with open timber roof. liuill in '36 Actual construction work began on Dec. 15, 1936. The building was ready for occupation on June 1, 1937. The builling is now valued at S200,- 000. The construction work was carried on during the time that the church was without a minister and when completed—except for composition tile floor covering and partition separating the church proper and social hall, the church had no debt. The tile floor was covered about a year ago with a red velvet carpet. The sanctuary is air conditioned. The chancel, which has three lancet windows, has space at either side for choir and orgainst and a place for the communion table under the chancel window. A Geneva pulpit is located at- one side of the chancel. The windows are in leaded steel frames and are of accidental pieces of antique marine glass. Up until only a few years ago, the bell from the old church was used in the new church tower. A permanent light burns nightly atop the church spire. The building committee consisted of R. C. Bryan, Joe Cromer, A. W. Bowen and the Inte George Doyle. Elders in the church have included John Bowen, John W. Williams, C. C. Morris, N. G. Cartwright, L. G. Clere, gd H. Mathis, John Mathes, P.
