A Church Dedication.

Members of the Christian congregation of Packwood have erected a neat and commodious house of worship the past summer, and they are filled with rejoicing now that it is nearing completion. The building and its furnishings will cost about $1,500, and it is a very creditable structure. Sabbath, November 23d, has been fixed upon as the date for dedication, and the services of that occasion will be conducted by Elder L. C. Wilson of Brighton and Elder M. C. Morrow of Delta. It is expected that a large number of strangers will meet the good people of Packwood on this date and arrangements will be made to entertain all of them.
