uating, he entered the Wesleyan Academy at Kent's Hill, Me., with the idea of becoming a Methodist minister. He read the works of Channing and Emerson, and became deeply interested. Early in life he heard Rev. Henry Blanchard preach, and the sermon proved to be the turning point in Mr. Powers' career. He decided to become a member of the Universalist Church and a preacher of its doctrines. He entered Tufts Theological School and took the regular two-years' course, devoting his time to hard study. Lacking the necessary funds to complete his education, he taught school for the purpose of securing money, and a year later obtained a position as city editor of the Atlantic City Times, of Atlantic City, N. J. He returned to Tufts in 1888 and finished his course, graduating with honors in 1890. He was at once called to pastorates at Mansfield and Foxboro, from which he came to Somerville. Rev. Mr. Powers resigned his pastorate in this city to accept a call to Grace Church, Buffalo.
