The children's concert of Sunday even
ing proved to us that there is much in oneof the most severe" reprimanding^
childhood that might profitably be car
ried into later years. The children did
splendidly. The congregation was large
and enteusiastic, the whole affair was
under the supervision of Mrs. L. C.
Sheafe and Mr. C. Martin. The right
hand of fellowship was given Bro. and
Sister Mann. The business meeting of
Wednesday evening was well attended,
and a goodly amount of business trans
acted. Our literary has taken a fresh
start for the fall and winter, in order to
make it a success the hearty co-opera
tion of all is needed. Our Wednesday
evening Bible class is still on the ascend
ing, no matter what is going on, we al
ways have our class for the study of the
Word. You are invited to come and sit
with us. Sisters Moffatt and Nelson are

upon whom the hand of affliction has
been so heavily, took the wings of the
morning, and has found the long covet

Tuesday morning, he found her waiting,
anxiously waiting for him. To the
memory of Sister B. F. Smith.
"Thou art misseda vacant seat,
In mockery now remains
Husband and children do not weep,
Earth's sympathies are vain,
But turn to him whose words of love
Can mitigate your grief,
For, from that pure o'erflowing fount,
You'll only find relief."

None of the many A. M. E. Churches
in the 4th E. D., was more pleased at
result of the late conference held in

was carried from hous to house with
home in Minneapolis. She has *-.M.
been succeeded by Miss Mamie Hull of

interest and pleasure. Th work
has moved on so smooth and in such
christian love that the sinners are be
ginning to say truly the spirit of God
is with him." The confidence of the
people is so rooted and established in

Judas or a Thomas, we fear the African
Methodist would have but little follow
