H. P. Evans,
At the meeting of the county com-
missioners this week B. F. fabaw, of
beaver City was awarded the contract
fo^lhe erection of the buildings upon
the poor farm und Howard Richeson,
living southwest of Gray, was ap-
pointed Superintendent of the poor
farm. This appointment is a good one
as Howard is a good uian foi the posi-
ticiv competent in every particular and
far superior in the elements that go to
make up a gentleman ard loyal, re-

appointment was fit at contemplated.

The Beaver County Republican is
strictly in favor of the enforcement of
ltw and order but we are e en more
stronr l" in favor ef a court and set of
officers that will enforce the law in an
honest, fair, impartial manner. When
a juFtiee court and denoty sheriff were
first located at Gray they started off in
a fairly honor«b'e manner, buL as time
went on they became more ^nd mor®

dents. and if thev had thrt least respect
for the ferlings of the good people of
this part of the country or the good of
the community thev would resign their
positions. It is now high t!me that
the business men of the town sat np

A Remarkable Rerival.
Moodav nisrht a revivt:! that was
most remarkable one was brought to
r'oae. The meeting were conducted by
Rev. Wm. M. L*May. a Christian
Evangelist of marked ability, ssa'sted
by Rev. J. W. Duff, and the result was
111 additions to the churcn. At
first to the average person this mav
not at. first glnnce look like a very
large number, but when it is under-
stood that 9 months ago the Christian
Church was not even organized in thii
community and that when these meet
ngs started about four weeks ago the
membership comprised only 11 m^m
bers, it will be seen that the incr'.'pie
In membership is almost phenominar
While LeMay did a great work here
and accomplished results that probably
could not have been accomplished bv
any one else, there is another that
also deserves great credit for this won
derful religious harvest and that is
Rey. J". W. Duff. He was the fore-
runner, pavod the way and made it
possible for Elder LeMay to come here
and a^complifh these results. Last
December be came hers stranger and
held a mealing in the school house and
asked for all of those present that de-
sired him te hold a series of meetings
to hold up tbeir bard, but not a hand
was raised. This did not discourage
him and bv went away, returning the
first of the year, with the milt that
he held a series of succee3tul meetings,
formed a church organization with
11 members and with thl small bund
they all went to work and succeeded in
erecting a fine church edtfict, which
they dedicated last Sundav.

labors of EiJer J. W. Duff in January,
1915, about 7 months ago. It has met
all the discouragements and obatac! '
and has mp.de this wonderful grov/m.

Oct. 3rd the beautiful and substantial
church on the west aide of the town

pulpit; cerpet and baptistry, was dep.-

to clear the house or about $1000 to
■ ear it and pay the expenses of the
meeting. This amount was raised W d
enough more to furnish the howe wirb

We hereby desire to express the

and may we ever say. Come, let us go
up to the houso of the Lord and prai?^
Him ever more for His goodness and
