The service consisted of special music rendered by a large choir. In the absence of Mrs. 8te- phens, Mrs. 8pautding presided at the organ. Solos were sung by Mr. Graffis and Mrs. Cretney. Before the sermon Rev. W. L. Richardson gave a short history of the enterprise, and summarized the statement of Mrs. C. F. Elwell, treasurer, of moneys raised and expended Something over $1900 had been raised and expended. The Ladies Aid was credited with $700. The grant from the iew York board when received would pay all indebted- ness. Rev. Mr. Scudder, state superin- tendent, asked for $350 with which to furnish the church. It was quick- ly raised, and a collection of $16 for general expenses added to it. The collection was followed by scripture reading by Rev. D. S. Bayley of Sno- homish. Dr. H. C. Mason of the Uni- versity church, Seattle, preached the dedication sermon." His theme was the admitted discontent of mankind of all grades; can find its remedy in God only.
