REPORT OF TRUSTEES FOR SUPERANNUATE HOMES.
We, your Board of Trustees for Superannuate Homes of the Central Texas
Annual Conference, herewith, submit our report.
We have secured two homes during the year, one built on a lot 75 by 150
feet, located on Rosen Heights, Fort Worth, the lot being donated by Bro. C.
C. Hayden of Grandview, which is worth $750. The house has five rooms
with galleries finished throughout and furnished with water connection. A
small barn has been built and the place well fenced, all of which is valued at
$1,750. We owe about three hundred dollars on same. Bro. W. J. Lemons
was moved into this home.
The other home is located at Ranger, where our honored Bro. Tunnell died.
After his death the presiding elder, Bro. Little, being on the ground, found
that there people were anxious that Sister Tunnell and family should remain
with them and she desiring the same, Bro. Little called our agent, Bro. Brown,
to his assistance and they appointed committees and started the work of
securing a home. This committee has secured a home near the church, L
house with six or seven rooms on a good lot, for the sum of $900. This com-
mittee raised nearly all of the first payment, which was $300, and they have
a good subscription of $300 more, leaving still, $300 unprovided for. Sister
Tunnell and her four children will move into the home this week, and we
know that no one who knew that worthy and faithful preacher, Bro. J. S.
Tunnell and his noble wife, but will rejoice to know that she and his chil-
dren are given a comfortable home by the Church, which he served so well.
One hundred and fifty dollars has been spent on repairs of the Haynie
Home at Georgetown, occupied by Sister Morgan and family.
Thus, you see, that we have some little prosperity in this work. Our af-
fairs are run on an economical basis, as our agent has had only a meagre
salary, and that, being made by himself in evangelistic work, never using
any part of "special gifts" or money raised by pastors, so, we urge our breth-
ren to co-operate with him in this work. Brother Brown with his singer,
Bro. Fisher, will enter at once into the field as helpers of pastors in meeting
work. Now, we insist that our brethren confer with them if they want faith-
ful Gospel work by preacher and singer.
We ask the Bishop to appoint Rev. Chas. E. Brown as our agent, thus mak-
ing him the joint agent of the Central and Northwest Texas Conferences.
We offer the following for your adoption:
Whereas, The Northwest Texas Conference five years ago began the work
of securing homes for the Conference claimants of the Northwest Texas Con-
Whereas, The recent session of the General Conference divided the North-
west Texas Conference into the Central and Northwest Texas Conferences;
therefore, be it
Resolved, That we continue this work of securing homes for the Conference
claimants of Central Texas Conference under the constitution enacted five
