At Nazarene church
We have changed our revival date to March 6-20 and Rev. Eugene Lewis will do the preaching in the place of Rev. Roland, as Roland, for some reason, didn’t see fit to come. Everybody come out. We will appreciate the cooperation of the other churches.
Rain and cold
Warm weather and sunshine having prevailed long enough to make us feel that spring had come to stay, suddenly departed last Sunday. The day broke with the sun concealed behind a veil of misty clouds and before mid-afternoon a steady down pour of southeast rain had set in , continuing until late Monday. Monday night a norther swept in and though the sun has been shining, the thermometer has played around 30 about all this week. The light freeze is not thought to have damaged fruit and gardens, but the rain stopped oat sowing. The grain acreage may be short as a result, many farmers having quit sowing before they were through.
