Services of the Wilmette Presbyterian church are held in the Woman's club building, Tenth street and Greenleaf avenue. The pastor, Dr. J. M.

Evening prelude, "The Awakening of the Moslem Women."
The mid-week service will be held at the home of the pastor, 1105 Central avenue, Wednesday, Feb. 12, at 8 o'clock. The subject of the evening will be "The Korean Trial and Torture and the Japanese Empire." At the close of the meeting the congregation will convene to consider matters relative to the completion of the church building, which is now rapidly on its way.
The Woman's society will give a valentine party for all the congregation on Friday night at the home of Mr. Bradley, 1104 Forest avenue. The invitation is extended to all who may wish to meet together for a social evening.
ONe of the strongest features of the Wilmette Presbyterian church is its Sunday school. Its enrollment for the last quarter was 189 and the average attendance 133. The beginners' department is under the superintendency of Mrs. Thomas E. D. Bradley, Mrs. Fred Simmons and Miss Beatrice Barker, and the primary department superintendents are Mrs. Ralph H. Rice and Miss Hilda Phelps. In the main school Mr. Herbert Weld has a class of boys which sometimes numbers 22. Mrs. John Kleft has the girls and Mrs. Nellie carpenter and Mrs. Emma Lloyd the young ladies of high school age. Both of these classes are under admirable instruction.
