Fifth Sunday Convention

Mexico, Delivered Address
The opening discourse of the
Fifth Sunday meeting of the
Christian churches of Collin
county was preached Friday night
by Elder Jewell Howard of Piano,
to a large and appreciative audi-
ence. This morning C. C. Bear-
den of vVylie was selected as sec-
retary, and reports of the corres-
ponding secretary, R C Horn,
were heard, showing the work
done in tho county. A balance
of $145 remains in the treasury,
with no indebtedness. Report!?
were received from twonty-seven
churches in the county, and all
of the preachers were present ex-
cept Elder J P Holme* of Melissa

ian church, presided Saturday.

May meeting reported in favor
of Celina which report was agreed
t< . As a church house is under
constryctiou at Celina which is
one of the mission points of the
County board, it was decided to
complete it ready for dedication
by that time. Rev. W. L. Swin-
ney of Weather ford, Texas was
selected to preach tho dedicatory
sermon. Rev. Swinney held a
meeting in Celina in 190JJ and or-
ganized the congregation.

made County Superintendent of
missions under tho direction of a
board of five resigned hie position
on the county mission board so as

work of looking after the woik of
locating work for others and the
building of churches. Jewell

cancy. The board now is com-
posed of the following persons
to wit: George L. Bush, presi-
dent; F. G. Jones, Dr W F Wol-
ford, Jewell Howard, J N Sans-
trum, R C Horn, Cor Sec and Ex
