Not providentially hindered we will
be doing business in the same old
way at the same old place tomorrow.
It may be fair or it may be foul, but
the Lord willing, we shall be here.
We want to meet you here. We want
to see you in Sunday School, the
preaching services, and the B. T. S.
When we tel] you that you are need-

morning at 9:45.
At eight o’clock in the evening we
will have our Christmas program. It
will consist largely of a dramatic can-
tata. Some very hard work has been
done on this, and we feel that any
one will be pleased with it.
In our Christmas exercise we are
remembering Rev. and Mrs. John D.
Holland. This is being solely out of
an appreciation of these good people.
Bro. Holland was once the pastor of
this church, and put some of the best
of his life into the work here; and
there are those who want to show
them that they are still appreciated.
So let any one, who desires to make
any kind of a gift to them, wrap it
in white paper, bring it to the church
and place it on a table, which will he
in the vestibule. There the gifts will
be taken up by the ushers and
brought into the church.
Worship with us tomorrow, and we
shall be glad and shall do our best
to make you glad. — J. N. Vandiver,

Assuming larger proportions with
each passing year, the work to relieve
of crippled children of Texas who
can be cured of their ailments or def-
initely helped is one of the finest
moves that has ever been launched.
There are thousands of adult Texas
cripples today who might have been
sound and well had careful, intelli-
gent attention been given them in
Masonic bodies in Texas a few
years ago started the movement in
Texas to treat crippled children. The
Rotary club and other civic organi-
zations joined in the movement, and
at the regular session of the Texas
Legislature an appropriation was
made for the work. The appropria-
tion of course, falls far short of the
sum needed for the work, but it is at
least a step in the right direction.
In the meantime many Texas bu-
siness and professional men are de-
voting time and money, unselfishly,
to the fine work. There is no esti-
mating the value of an operation or
treatment to a child who can be help-

We are twins and look alike. WThen
we were at school my brother threw
an eraser and hit the teacher. She
whipped me. She didnt know the dif-
