Last battle of the war. [from the Dallas, Texas, news, December, 1896.] it was fought on the Rio Grande in Texas. The last volley of the war said to have been fired by the Black boys in Blue.

Slatter gives an interesting and well-written article on the battle of West Point, Ga., which occurred April 16, 1865, and which he says was really the last battle of the war between regularly organized forces.

In December, 1896, the church voted to use the Church Hymnary instead, and the society having voted to adopt the free seat system and pledges instead of pew rental, it also voted to purchase and own the hymn books. The church observed the twenty-fifth anniversary of its organization on Sunday, June 13, 1897, at morning service by a sermon by the pastor on The Power of the Church in the Community, and by a special communion service. At the evening service were addresses on The Sunday-school and Christi
