ST. JAMES A. M. E. CHXKCH.
Cold weather and La Grippe scattered
the flock on Quaiterly meeting day.
On Monday there were nineteen sick
persons reported as connected with St.
James church Mrs. T. H. Lyles re
turned home last week and has been
confined to her room eyer since. So en
ergetic and efficient a member is surely
greatly missed. May her hours of sick
ness be cheered by the presence of
Jesus and tne consoling recollections of
faithful labors for his cause. Presiding
Elder Knight left Thursday for Minne
apolis and speaks of his visit as a very
pleasant one. His sermon Sabbath after
noon was exceptionally earnest and
forcible. The receipts from the Quar
terly meeting were $26 83 notwithstand
ing the weather. The gross receipts for
the quarter were $832 82 for all depart
ment of the church. What St. James
church lacks in numbers is made up in
systematic and thoroughly business like
methods of conducting affairs. Suffi
cient foresight is used to guard against
getting in tight pl-iees.

Report of the Polyorama.
For two years previous to this St.
James church has given annual fairs the
success of which weie most exceptional.
As the time drew near this season, the
field was carefully reviewed, other en
tertainments under contemplation, the
condition of business, the weather and
all other points bearing upon the success
of each undertaking were considered
and it was concluded to divide the fair
into sections, one to be held in October
and the other in December, as this
would give ample time to work up each,
and, still not interfere with any other
entertainment given in November.
The firet section was given October 28,
29 and 30, and cleared $309.17. The
second section, the Polyorama was given
daring Christmas week. The entertain
ments which had preceded it were each
BO successful and together had collected
about $800 from the public pocket, that
many feared the Polyorama would have
poor picking, some little oppositions
were encountered, some discourage
ments met with, but inspired by the re
membrances of the glorious triumphs of
the past, and lull of faith in God, the
ladies went to work. Here is the result
in dollars and dimes:
