Pilgrim Baptist Church.
The annual game supper is over. It
still holds its place as one of the fixtures
among our people. The enthusiasm
over the fair interfered somewhat with
the supper. The Pilgrim Lyceum will
give its first entertainment on the 14th.
The work of the fair is full of promise.
We hope to avcid many of the evils that
attend fairs and things of its nature.
Would each christian but do his duty,
such things as fairs need never enter
the church. The exchange last Sunday
evening was very agreeable to all, Rev.
A. C. Kelly preached an able and in
structive sermon, he was highly pleased
with the congregation. Bible Dav will
be observed on the 24th inst, thorough
preparations are being made for it. We
want to see tbe church more than full
that afternoon at 3 o'clock. The Wo
man's Missionary Society will add some
to its work in the future by partaking
some of the nature of a sewing circle.
Let no one forget the Bible class and
teachers meeting Wednesday, nor gen-,
eral prayer meeting Friday evening.
Come for the feast is spread. It is for
signs of spiritunl power that we look
now. It may be helpful for us to turn
to the example of the Great Teacher,
during his own life, how small were the
apparant results of his ministry. Who
can estimate now the stupendous results
which have lollowed directly from those
three years. Here is encouragement
for us to work on. nothing doubting,
sure that the same God rules now as
then. Bread cast on the water will re
turn after many days.
St. James A M. E Church.
The largest congregation assembled
since the dedication of this church was
present last Sunday night. The ser
mon was considered by those who heard
it one of the best delivered from this
pulpit. The morning services were of
the warmest and most spiritual charac
ter. TheJSunday school is doing grandly.
The sermon to-morrow night will be a
sequal to the one of last Sunday. Al
thinking persons are urged to attend.
Just think $104,000 spent yearly by the
Colored people of St. Paul for groce.ies

each one took part, and the meeting was
crowned with success. There is a plenty
of good material on the West Side, if
they would only come and help in the

Rev. Dr. Burrell of the Westminster
church lectured at the St. Peters on
Wednesdav evening. His discourse was
an interesting one on the "Melancholy
of Religion." He said this world was
made for us to enjoy ourselves in. He
does not believe in these long-faced
christians. He thought the pulpit with
a fence around it in the church super
fluous, and the manuscript used by a
minister out of place in the pulpit. His
discourse was interspersed with mirth
efficiently to keep the large audience in
the best of humor. After the lecture
the ladies of the church furnished re
freshments in the basement, but not be
fore a collection was takenup. Dr. Bur
rell was given fifty dollars for his lecture
which he presented to the church.
Financially the entertainment was a
grand succes, socially it has been the
most pleasant event of the week.
