Red Lake Falls, Minn., Oct. 31.-The work of decorating the interior of St. Joseph's Catholic church has been completed by a crew of workmen from O. D. Kover & Sons of Fort Wayne, Ind.

The work took a month and cost $1,700. The side walls are done in a three coat washable French encaustic of cream and light buff and the ceilings of lighter tone with gold and blue. The sacristy is painted to represent a sunset and the colors are beautifully blended.

Some twenty medallion paintings of angels and saints adorn the walls and ten life size paintings of saints are along the walls and ceilings.
