Whittttnore's church dedication was & big event Sunday. Dr. Lewis of Sioux City, Dr. Yetter, Rev. Gilbert, Rev. Schmidt and Rev. Hamerson all participated. It is free of debt, $1,215 being raised at the services. The building has cost $3,220, and is very handsomely designed. It is located at the corner of Kossuth and Third streets, facing west and north. The main auditorium is 36x36 and is entered at the northwest corner from the vestibule which is 11x11 and situated under the tower. The pulpit is at the southeast corner, and back of the pulpit is an elevated recess or organ loft. On the west is a lecture room 18x32, octagonal in form, which may be entered from the vestibule or from outside. This room is separated from the main auditorium by oak doors which are made to disappear by elevating them like a window sash, and thus throwing the whole building into one room. The windows in the main room are Gothic and all of leaded art glass. Eight of them on the south and east sides are 4x9, and a large one on the north 8x16 feet. The interior finish is all of oak. The pews are circular and the ends are massive and beautifully carved, as are also the altar rail and pulpit. The church will be lighted with acetyline gas and heated with hot air furnace. Altogether it is one of the handsomest and most complete churches to be seen in this region. Swea City Herald.

As the Reporter stated some weeks ago, and repeats it now, "Wesley has no axes to grind, and so far as we can learn it will be a unit for harmony anc good fellowship. This feeling we are satisfied will prevade the coming convention and will result in putting up an impregnable ticket." We are ol that opinion still, and so far as Wesley is concerned the balance of the county can depend on its doing its whole duty for the republican ticket. Sister M. Bernadetta of the St. Francis order of Milwaukee arrived Saturday and remained until Monday evening visiting»her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Studer. It is some seven years since she left Wesley to join the sisterhood, and by her native and acquired talents has risen high in the order.
