    Devotional services were conducted by Rev. R. C. Minor and
Hon. G. W. Hays.  The Moderator made mention of the recent

paid a tribute to the manly and successful efforts of the immortal
Lincoln and Grant to make the names that will ever live in the
hearts of the American people.

the earnest and successful efforts of Prof. Curry to establish his
school, and predicted a bright future for this institution. Under-
standing is to know what you know. He mentioned the 74 schools
of our denomination. Rev. R. Boyd in the building of the Pub-
