This Cotty giving a list of preachers who had ministered to the methodist protestant Church congregation in Plainfield during sixty years. The article contains items of local Church history so interesting that we repro Duce it in 1842 the first methodist protest ant Church was built in Plainfield. Ohio. A few years before that a society of methodists was formed in the neighbourhood. This society Wor shipped for a time in private houses and in schoolhouses till in 1842. They resolved to build a Church in the Village. This was a Frame Structure. 32x42 feet in size. This Structure gave place in 1881 to a Brick building. Two stories High. Arzich to Day still f stands.

I tape the names of Over seventy min i hers. Preachers and exporters who used to serve us As such from time to time since the introduction of meth Odist protestantism into this Section in 1830 i believe that Rev. Cornelius Springer a convert from the methodist episcopal Church to the Princi Ples of the methodist protestant Church was the first minister to come into this Region and proclaim the Doc Trine of free next came Rev.

William Dawson. Of Jackson town ship with son and two daughters re turned saturday from Washington d. Where they were called the death of Clyde w. Dawson who was drowned while in bathing on the Beach at Cape May a week ago Sun Day. Deceased the youngest son of William Dawson. He had been Liv ing in the Vicinity of Washington d. For the last two years and was employed As the travelling agent of the Board of childrens guardians of the District of Columbia his age was 25 years and he leaves a wife and son fourteen months old at Linden. Maryland a suburb of Washington. The Young Man was educated at Antioch College was highly gifted and very efficient in the Charity work in which he was engaged. His untimely death is a great Shock to his parents Brothers and Sisters. Inter ment of remains was made in a Ceme Tery at Washington last wednesday. The officers of the Charity Organiza Tion whose business is to provide Homes for homeless children Are sorely distressed Over the death of this Young Man who was so efficient in the line of Benevolence for the needy and who was just entering on a career promis ing great usefulness and renown. Was a Printer in Youthful Days. Chapter from the life of a popular Railroad official. Perhaps no Railroad official in the United states has a warmer place in the great heart of the travelling pub Lic than e. A. Ford the genial and obliging general passenger agent of the Pennsylvania lines West of Pitts Burg. He is Well know a and popular in the Railroad world but perhaps few of his most intimate friends Are aware of the versatility he displayed about a printing officer the Early Days of his career. In referring to or. Ford s experience in a newspaper office the fort Wayne ind news says Long ago. E. A. Ford the vet eran general passenger agent of the Pennsylvania company s lines was in this City for a few hours and the news in speaking of his visit said that he began his Active life As a Printer. A metropolitan paper in noticing the article denied that or Ford had Ever been so engaged interested in the mat Ter. I wrote or. Ford concerning the matter and this is his answer i have your favor and in reply will say that i did not begin my Active life As a Printer. It is. However True that while i was teaching school in mis Souri in 1s59. I Learned a Little about setting Type in a newspaper office. I used to scribble for a newspaper called the Ironton Furnace which was published at Ironton. Mo., and then would set up my own articles read the proof help print the paper on a hand press and sometimes act As the from this i would say that or. Ford must have been consid Erable of a Printer. Indeed he must have been the whole editor Printer and Devil combined. He could move along by the Side of general Reub Williams. J. B. Stoll. Or any of the old timers. The grand old pass Enger agent is entirely too modest. He is entitled to a card in the Typo graphical and Pressman s unions and also admission As a member of the press installation of officers. At wednesday evening s meeting Fidelity Lodge of k. Of p. Installed the following officers Chancellor commander Allen Holmes. Vice Carpen Ter. Haskins. Master of m. Smith. Inner a. Shannon. Outer a. Edwards. Big cattle and big Money. A is dedicated and a debt of lifted. Two Large audiences listen morning and evening to the eloquent pleadings of Bishop Joyce. Chatory service in the new auditorium was with an interested the new auditorium of Grace m. E. Church was opened for divine service last sunday and dedicated to the ship of almighty god at the evening meeting. Bishop Joyce of Minne Sota a prelate High in authority in the methodist episcopal Church had charge of both Sec ices. Preaching in the morning and conducting the Dedi evening. The entirely filled congregation. Bishop Joyce proved to be eloquent forcible and witty. He is a Star per former in the work of treating subscriptions to pay off a Church debt. At close of the Sermon when Effort was to begin for subscriptions the treasurer of the Church read a Brief statement showing the Cost of the new Structure to be 82o.85s.33 that there had been collected Leav ing a debt of sl2.859.33. At the close of that service subscriptions to the amount of had been taken. At the evening service about 63.700 was subscribed and the impressive dedicatory ceremony was performed by the Bishop assisted by reverends Toland and Pope and presiding elder Henthorn. Reverend Hamilton of the Presby Terian Church and Rev. Weber of the English lutheran Church were called on for remarks and responded in Brief and please nor talks. A half do7en others most of them Active in Church work were called on for remarks and responded briefly. The meeting continued until ten o clock with songs of rejoicing and congratulatory hand shaking at the close. It looked like a herculean undertaking to obtain subscriptions to liquid ate a Church debt of nearly during the morning and evening cer vices of a single Day. In a c Coshocton congregation but this was accomplished. Fully 813.000 was raised which covers the total debt and leaves three or four Hundred dollars to pro vide for an interest account which must be made at the Bank by which the payment of these subscriptions can be distributed Over two years. Every Dollar due the contractors in the construction of the building can thus at once be paid. Sunday was indeed a proud Day for the Grace Church membership and pastor Toland acknowledged it to be the happiest Day of his ministerial life to build and pay for a Church costing Over 825.000 in one year is truly a great achievement and All the adherents of local methodism have a right to rejoice and feel exceedingly glad. Rev. Toland was heartily congratulated by Bishop Joyce on the Success of the undertaking to provide such a commodious and Beautiful Temple of worship for the methodists of Coshocton. And asked the congregation to give him a Well earned vacation. Rev. R. B. Pope of Cambridge preached last evening with his old time earnestness and eloquence to a Large congregation.
