100 Years Ago
BANNER: The campaign for millions carried on by the United Society of Christian Endeavor during the past two years closed July 1 and in checking up the reports from the Pacific district, the officers found that the First United Brethren Society of Philomath, which won the banner at the recent district convention, is still in the lead and is entitled to permanent possession. Excellent work was done in the Pacific district, which ranks high in the state work, and the Philomath society is entitled to all possible credit.
