The new building of the Berwick store company which has been in course of erection for Many months past is now completed. There Are two reasons Why our citizens Are especially interested in this big establishment in which Berwick justly feels so proud. The first is that it is one of the largest Ami most finely appointed store buildings in this Section the second that it was built under the supervision of Ami Over the plans furnished by our townsman. Architect j h. Bungler. The building which is a four Story Structure of Brick and Stone Loo Alho feet consists in part of the old store building which was thoroughly re modelled and a Large Annex. It is equipped with Hydraulic passenger Ami freight elevators from the first to the fourth floor in a edition Toa a pavement drop from the sidewalk to the cellar. On the first floor in the Centre of the room near the elevator is a Large and very ornate so la Fountain. It is distinctively a department store and As such will compare favourably with Many of those in our larger cities. The departments Are entirely separate Ami comprise groceries Green or xer ies meat flour and feed stoves Ami tinware. A iry goods millinery . Gents furnishing go xxx jewelry furniture House furnishing goods car pets and drugs. In connection with the Green grow by and meat department is a cold storage room of sufficient capacity to bold several car loads of fruits there is also a department for butter and eggs and another for fresh meat which will enable to company to kill a whole car la and of cattle at a time and plats them a a ii cold storage the Leef being run in a a ii Overli i a tracks and sus a ended along the sides.

The revival services at St. Paul s m. E. Church announced on sunday morning Are now in full swing. The results Are most Gratifying and the meeting last night As Well As on tuesday night was of tremendous Power. Speaking of last nights meeting one of the oldest members of the Church remarked that a it possessed More of the evidences of an old fashioned revival than he had seen for Twenty years this allusion to the a old fashioned revival a suggests the fact that within recent years there has been a disposition in the methodist Church to Drift away from the old landmarks relating to conversion which have always been a distinguishing feature of the Church. Recognizing the fact that the old methods were passing the question was taken up by the general conference at its last meeting to determine whether they should not be eliminated from the discipline of the Church. After a prolonged discussion covering Many Days the advocates of a old fashioned a methods came off victorious. Methodism must retain the old Way of increasing membership. In this connection it is interesting to note that Rev. Harry Curtin Harman pastor and All the people of St. Paul a regardless of what the attitude of some of the former pastors May have been Are squarely on record in favor of old fashioned revivals which implies deep penitence for sin. The coming to the altar or mourners Bench and confessing Christ As Saviour. It is conceded on All sides that St. Paul s Church is in need of a revival Rev. Harman s ministry has been eminently successful along financial lines but a Beautiful Church with a rapidly diminishing debt an not All that Are needed. An accession of membership i also essential. To bring this Alquit pastor and people stand United and 11 fashioned Quot methods will employed. A cordial invitation is extended to the Public to attend the revival my Ting at St. Paul s.
