New M. E. South Pastor Arrives.
Rev. Geo. W. Trotter, the new pastor of the M. E. Church South, and Mrs. Trotter arrived Saturday morning from Winfield, Mo. They drove as far as Stanberry, where they were compelled to leave their car because of the rain.
Rev. and Mrs. Trotter have a son who is a minister, serving his first charge this year. He assisted his father during the summer at Winfield.
Rev. Trotter preached at New Hope Sunday morning and in Skidmore Sunday evening. He will preach here next Sunday, both morning and evening.
