fiJU?Tt8t CHURCH ANNIVERSARY. Ed, Republican: The thirtieth antii* irersaty services of the Baptist church were attended by large congregations, morning) afternoon and evening of last Sunday. The beautiful floral decorations added much to the attractiveness of the house of worship, The occasion, like that of two years ago, was one long to be remembered. The sermon in the morning was delivered by the pastor on a theme suited to the occasion, Rev. W. L. Wolfe assisting. In the afternoon a very enjoyable service consisted in the calling of the roll of all the present members, with responses from each in reminiscences of former times and in scripture sentiments, interspersed with the singing of old-time hymns. In the evening the principal.features were an interesting sketch of the church's history, read by Miss Cramer; .an account of the Sunday school, by Miss Anna Johnson; a history of the young people's society, by Miss Bailey. Tho chief i'acts of the church's history were published two years ago. Some later history reveals a steady growth in numbers, financial strength, and in organisation for work. At the beginning of the present pastorate, two and a half years ago, the church assumed financial self-support for the first time. In the same time fifty-two persons have been added to its membership, a good proportion of whom are among its most useful members. A women's mission circle and two mission bands for young people and children have been organized and well supported. The women's mission circle and the Vineyard Workers- band were organized and have been conducted under the efficient leadership Of Mrs. F. M. Smith. Of the former she has been president for above two years—ever since its organization. Of the latter Miss Lillie Howard is president, and of the Willing Workers' band Miss Clara Burroughs is the organizer and leader. All these organizations have raised very creditable sums for missionary and other purposes besides holding regular meetings for instruction. The church also maintains benevolent contributions from time to time. Miss Johnson's painstaking paper gave an interesting account of former Sunday school workers, extending over a dozen years, and also made mention of the present flourishing condition of the school, with James Chapin as superintendent. Miss Bailey's paper spoke of the young people's society as having originated in the young peoples' prayer meeting, begun about four years ago. The society was organized less than two years ago, end is proving to be an •excellent means for training the young people. Two of its members are offii- cers in the young peoples' organization ior the Northern association and for the state. The meetings of the society are well attended and interesting. The young men present have often equaled and sometimes excelled the young ladies present in numbers and interest. The recent well attended lecture by the pastor on "The Hugenots," was under its auspices. It uses a printed program cif prayer meeting topics and is fully organized, with the reader of the paper as its faithful president. The young people attend the church prayer meeting which is also well sustained at present. This church also bore a leading part in the division of the Upper Des Moines association and in the formation of the new and growing Northern Iowa association. This association, in the seven months of its existence, has held three inspiring meetings, all of which have greatly strengthened its churches and workers. Both church and association will doubtless have a fruitful future, with a record of service on the part of the former far surpassing the past. A MEMBER. _ —»-*0f-< NOTICE.

It is now over a year since the law was passed and our county has done comparatively nothing towards county imiformity. If the directors do not bestir themselves we will never have it. According to the law, half of the directors must petition the county superintendant before anything can be done. Let some directors start a petition and get the other director to sign it. Give the electors a chance to vote on the question next March. ' We need county uniformity. Every one who has tried it knows how inconvenient it is to have two or three kinds of books in a class; or worse still, to have a class for every different book. If all the pupils had books alike we could economize time and do better work. Books will be much cheaper. The county board of education will sell them at actual cost. Some of the publishing houses have offered to take our old books, I believe, at half price. If we can sell our old books at half price and buy the new ones cheaper, our books will not be a great expense to us. The county superintendant, county auditor and the county board of supervisors are to select the books. We will be-sure to get good books, as they are to take into consideration the binding, illustrations, quality of material used and other things that go to make up a good book. After the books have been introduced, the county board of education cannot change the books in less than five years, unless authorized to do so by a vote of the electors. Samples of the books which may be examined by teachers, school officers and school patrons, will be kept at the auditor's office. Talk the matter over with your neighbors. Letus have something done about it before another March rolls around. CAROLINE WESLEY. Teacher in sub-district No. 5, Burt township.
