The Mission festival - Missionsfest - at Mapleworks was a success in every way.  We had the finest of weather; two good sermons and a short address - the German by Rev. Stelter of Fall Creek, the English by Rev. Hass of Chippewa Falls.  We had a great crowd of people and all of them behaved so well that our committee for good order had no occasion to request anybody t o behave better.  In short it was a most delightful affair and people who had celebrated at Maplehurst in previous years declared this was the best of all the mission festivals they ever had here. And although we do not speculate on our stands and were closed during services, they netted a considerable profit to the congregation, as the sales were good.  To our regret one of our people, Mr. Oscar Kuechenmeister, was kept away by an accident with which he met on his way to the church caused by an automobile.  We are sorry this happened.  S. Rathke, Pastor
