The date will be given later.

Activities at the Methodist Church – Surely no one could call the Trinity Methodist Church a dead wire, for with all the organizations holding regular meetings and interest and cooperation at a high point, expectations for a revival of religion during the winter cannot fail to be realized.  Religion is a love and obedience toward God, and a church full of love for their fellowmen is what we are writing about.

The Ladies Aid Society was entertained on Wednesday at the home of Mrs. Hampton Hicks and Mrs. Paul Willis.  About twenty members were present.  The meeting was called to order by the President, Mrs. G.W. Isenberg, and after singing "Abide With Me," the reading of the 100th Psalm, and repeating of the Lords Prayer, the reports of committees were called for and the chairman of the last bake reported a successful afternoon.  These bakes are held bi-monthly, and the committees for Saturday, Nov. 15, was appointed:  Edgar Twilley, Mrs. W.J. Crowe, and Mrs. Paul Willis.  The parsonage committee reported having placed a new wood heater in the parsonage, and this bill was ordered paid.  The treasurer reported having paid several bills from the previous month.  A discussion as to the rebuilding of the parsonage or buying a lot and erecting a new one filled in the rest of the afternoon, until a delicious fruit salad, crackers, cheese and coffee were served.  The meeting adjourned to meet in December, with Mrs. J.E. Patten.

Wednesday evening at the usual hour of the Usher Union meeting the newly organized Orchestra met at the home of Miss Maud Isenberg, for their first instructions.  A regular meeting of the Union was held on Wednesday of this week at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Brown.

The attendance at the mid-week prayer service we not what it should or could have been, so each one there has been on the job of reminding those they meet that there is such a meeting on Thursday at 7:45 PM.

The Sunday School was in charge of Miss Nellie Wheatley's class during the opening exercises last Sunday, special music and a recitation by members of the class were given, next Sunday morning a member of the Baraca Class will open the school, this active part by classes has a tendency toward increase attendance, regularity, and promptness.

Mr. and Mrs. John Tieder and family moved to Cambridge on Wednesday after having been residents of East New Market for the past five years.  Mr. Tieder who is in the employ of the Pennsylvania Railroad, has been transferred, making the change necessary.  It is with deep regret that we see this family leave our neighborhood.  These good citizens will be missed from the church, school, and Master John and Robert, who have had charge of the evening papers will be much missed.

Wright, of Baltimore, who with Mrs. Wright are guests of Mr. and Mrs. H.E. Parker, present to sing.  Mr. Wright has a tenor voice and holds a position with one of the city churches, so the members of the club
feel very grateful to their hostess of the evening for having presented the program and to Mr. Wright for his willingness to render the program.  Miss Maud Isenberg was the pianist of the occasion.  Mr. Wright was accompanied by Mrs. H.E. Parker in some of the selections.  A business session was held prior to the social hour, at which time plans for the club to attend the county meeting at Vienna on Wednesday were made.  Homemade cake, coffee, cocoa, and fruit were served in abundance.
