The extent to vhluH ConueHsvlllo lias beeomo a cont r tor tho gatnorins oV religious bociioj Is more general than many ciUzena realize. During (ho past y-oar then- ware several such ft«tombUes here, the moat notable-and largest having been, tho afinuaf meeting of tho Pittsbuis Conference o£ tho .Methodist Kplscopit Church, This was so successfully conducted that it I»roved to tho utmost satisfaction oi Ihe visiting ininisteis and laymen that \vo arc fully equipped, and nll© as well, to servo as liobt upon such occasions. Tho next event of this kind is tho swiil-annual metlng o£ tho representatives ot tho Northern Baptist congregations composing the Mononga- hola Association. Tho group includes 28 congregations scattered over Western Pennsylvania with a total membership o£ 5,000. T!io meetings will be hold In the first Baptist Church. Uev. IS. II. Slovens, pa*tor, and the communicants oC his church, will have the duty and privilege o': entertaining tho visiting bretlierri. That they will prove capable hosts m r-ve-ry particular is assured, having both tho experience aud tl o inclination to so serve. Every such gathering, hero has greater advantages and value to Con- uellsville than t omo persons are disposed to believe. Whenever opportunity offers when \vo can extend to new groups o: .people from other places such favors and attention as will cause them to form favorable impressions of our city, of the generous hospitality of our people-, and bring to their notice the things and institutions we have that are designed to make HCe moio pleasant and worthwhile 1'or oui citizens, v.e are doing mnch to create now centma of kJ-xdly interest in om tOvsn and its people.
