It was evident from hist night's gathering that the church released them most regretfully, and tho largo number of young and old present at the "Farewell'' was a tribute to the fact, that under Mr. Francis, the work lias gone on vigorously and successfully. Wm. Wostcott presided and the best talent in the congregation, contributed to a very enjoyable program. During the evening the chairman took occasion to review tho history of the past four years of the church, referring particularly to Mr. FranclB' good work among the. boys and girls In connection with the Junior congregation, Junior choir, and morning class, all of which are features not only in North Lethbrldge but throughout the province.

In the course of his reply, Mr. Francis told about a pound note ho had received from a man, whose name appears on the honor roll of the church. This money had been given him by his comrades as a reward for a 'unique display of moral courage and had been sent to Mr. Francis for the. work of the church. In Mr. Francis' opinion, the donation should be given special significance and suggested that it be used to start a fund to secure a bronze memorial for the men who have enlisted from the church and to show all the names appearing 011 the honor roll. Tho patriotic audience enthusiastically took up the suggestion, and unanimously- requested It. B. Johnson, a veteran of the present war and associate superintendent of the Sunday school to take charge of the note and act as treasurer for the fund. Refreshments were served during the evening.
