Surbrook priest, John Mills teacher, and Robert H. Huston deacon. The last two named ordained by Brethren Briggs and Smith. On Robert E. Grant's return to where he has been laboring' last year, Applegate and vicinity, he found that some of the ministers of the other denominations had lectured against the Saints, had gone from house to house warning the people against the work of our people, which caused many to turn away, and not listen any more to the gospel; while a few were still willing to hear, and some were baptized. have commenced to build a church; also in Applegate, two churches are nearly completed; and so far as done, no debt hanging on any of them.
