MOUNTAIN VIEW.--The church building at this place has been undergoing repairs since August 1. On Sunday, September 20, the congregation again worshiped in their old home made new to the extent of $250 in interior repairs. The Lord met with his people and it was a joyful day. The pastor, Rev. B. F. Whittemore, preached from Hag. 1-8, on the subject, "Building and Beautifying the Temple." There were five additions to the membership of the church. This is the oldest Cumberland Presbyterian Church building in this State, and has long been needing the repairs just finished. We are praising God for his help hitherto, and the bright prospects before us. B. F. WHITTEMORE.
