P. T. A. MEETS AT MT. BRIAR Some Organizations At St. Mark's Are Joining Church In Marking Anniversary GRAY'S FUR SHOP 16 East Washington St. Phone 1233 In compiling material for the Golden Anniversary celebration of St. Mark's Lutheran Church it was discovered that the church dates back to August 9, 1S89, when a meeting was held at the home of William Marr to consider organizing another Lutheran Church in this city. On August 16 and 23, other meetings were held and it was at the latter meeting that the committee reported the hall at the engine house of the Western Enterprise Fire Company had been rented for a place of worsnip. On October 6, 1SS9, the first regular service was held in the hall by Rev. S. A. Hedges. At this meeting the congregation was organized as the third English Lutheran Church with eighteen members which was soon increased to thirty. Members of the first council were: William Marr, John W. Koogle, Joshua Snyder, D. C. Potterfield and Louis Weihr. The pulpit was filled by students from the Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, Pa. In 1S90, Rev. S. F. Bateman, of Sclinsgrove, Pa., was elected pastor, beginning his work on March 7. At the first meeting of the council the name was changed to St. Mark's Lutheran Church. On November 29, 1S91, the congregation purchased the Straub property. The brick dwelling was made into a chapel and the cornerstone was laid on October 7, 1S92.

Dornblaser, of Columbus, Ohio, became the third pastor on March 1, 1903. He added one hundred members to the church and paid over $2.000 on the church debt. Connected with the church is a flourishing Sunday School having over one hundred in the primary | department alone. Superintendents j who have served to date were: A. A. Lechlider, W. H. Reisner, V. T. Meredith and A. T. Zentmyer.

Mr. Dornblaser's resignation was accepted August 5, 1906. The Rev. J. Win. Ott preached his first sermon here in March, 1907. This church history was secured through the courtesy of Albert G.
