Sunday aiTthe First Baptist
was a good day. The audiences were
thinned by the unfavorable conditions
and yet the attendance was good. In

a summary of the work. Fifty-four
members had been received and the
church had contributed $5 3S8 in its
own local work and to missions. This
did not include $134550 of money
received on insuranc: and expended
with other contributions on improve-
ment. He also spoke of the possi-
bilities of the work for 1897 and at
the conclusion raised $153 20 for
Buckner Orphans' Home.
At n ght the sermon was on 'Christ
able to save to the uttermost'" when
the three points ol his ability to save;
his power to save to the uttermost or
eternally and Ins living mediatorial
work were discussed. There were two
valuable additions during the day.
