Rev. C. H. Dixon, the Methodist minister recently appointed to this charge, has arrived with his family and is now stopping at the residence of Mr. Langley. Mr. Dixon delivered his first sermon before the Wadena people last Sunday night, and we must say that the people of Wadena may well congratulate themselves on the coming among them of such a man as Mr. Dixon. He a young man of ability and great activity and will doubtless accomplish much good here.
