Taking rs his text the well-known Scriptural words, " Am I my brother's keeper ?" the rev. gentleman pleaded for a full it-cognition first of all of the basic Christian principle of the brother hood of man.

The idea had to become, not a mere catch word, a meaningless social expres sion, but a conscious reality that filled their hearts with al&g...

About 12 years ago trustees were ap pointed, but only one of these gentlemgn is now a resident of the district, and it was considered ad visable to take steps to have new trustees appointed, with a view of carrying out much-needed improve ments.
