ST. JAMES A. H. E. CHURCH.
The great revival of three years ago
still continues. During the protracted
meeting of the past three weeks, twenty
one souls have been reclaimed, God
has been with his people and blessed
their efforts. Last Sabbath was a glor-
ious day and hundreds drank at the
fountain. Rev. T. W. Henderson, of
Springfield, III., spent all of last week
with us and preached at both the Sab
bath services. He is too widely known,
and his power as a preacher is too well
attested by the wonderful results that
always attend hiseffoits to make it neces
sary to say any more than that he was
present and full of the Holy Ghost. The
attendance throughout the entire series
of meetings has been large and each
night has been one of blessing. Quite a
number of the best workeis in the Bap
tist church have lent their assistance in
our work. Tins is as it should be, we
are all on our march heavenward and
though we differ in regard to some
things we do not in the most essential
ones,therefore theie is no reason why
there should not exist the utmost har
mony and brotherly love between us.
The church is full of zeal and alive to its
duty. Sabbatn there were present over
500 as well-behaved, as neatly-dressed,
as would be assembled in any com
munity, except lor benevolent pui poses
No collections were raihed during the
week but th-u receipts Sabbath were
$45. The Sunday school is increasing in
attendance very* rapidly and by the
time summer is here will probably have
out gtown its present quarters. AH are
invited to be present to-moriow night
tbe pastor has several practical sugges
tions to offer, iiaster Sunday the church
will be full of birds and flowers and
special Easter services will be held.
PILGRIM BAPTIST CHURCH.
As the spring approaches freighted
with its new strong life, there seems to
course through our whole midst, a re
ligious interest that is truly deep and
spiritual. There are among us loyal
hearts that have grander conceptions of

coupled with the sincere desire to love,
trust and serve Him better daily. The
ordinance of baptism will be adminis
