Pastors Discuss Prayer Meeting.
The Ministerial meeting Monday
morning was ono of the most interest
ing so far, probably for two reasons :
All of tho local members, except one
who rarely can attend on account of a
pastorate out or town, wore present,
and the topic was one that is of such
vital Interest to lalety as well as tho
clergy. Missions, pastoral work, study,
the work of the Bible School and the
Young People's organizations, each
have their place but the consensus of
opinion in the paper and discussion
gave first place to the prayer side of
life. Tho Rev. E. II. Newsome, of the
local A. M. E. Church opened the sub
ject with a short but fruitful paper
on "Tho Mid Week Prayer Service."
A man once said that ho could Judge
fairly well, oven though a stranger,
the moral andsplrituallifeofachurch
by attending the weekly prayer ser
vice, What would ho say of Ilills
boro ? How often wo seo tho prayor
meeting deserted for the so called
Innocent pleasures of life. "Tho
Prayer Meeting is the spiritual thor
momoterof the church." The charac
ter of that servlco Is such as either to
warm up or freeze out tho Church
life. Tho pastor should bo the leading
spirit but not necessarily the leader
of each prayer meeting. Variety
hero as elsewhere In life is the spice of
life. "Keep out of the ruts," as one
pastor puts It. It was gratifying to
know that each pastor sees the Import
ance of this service and that each has
planned to meet the need as the cir
cumstances of the Individual church
requires. To sum It all up in tho
striking truth presented by one of tho
membors, "Hlllsboro's supremo need
Is to take time long enough to pray
and to get acquainted with God."
Tho Association will meot again at
the Baptist Study, Monday, April 4,
10 a. in., at which time tho Rev. D.
Emerson Tobias will open tho discus
sion with a paper, "Tho Crisis In tho
Danville Christian Church.
Sunday School at 10 a. m. We wish

Oil At Willettsville.
Is there oil In the Willettsville
neighborhood? A number of residents
of that community bellves there Is,
and foreign prospectors who were
there last week confirm them In this
belief. A meeting has been called to
bo held at tho Township House at
Wlllottsvllle Friday night, at which
tlmo the situation will bo gone over
and a corporation in all probabilities
formed for the drilling of test wells.
The land on which It Is thought aro
tho best prospects aro tho Ayres farm.
Dean farm and the Ben Fenner place,
In warm weather It Is claimed that
crude oil oozes out between tho strata
of rock in a quarry on ono of these
places and that water on some of these
places tastes very strong of oil. If oil
can be found In paying quantifies the
owners of tho land will be Immensely
rich and Ilillsboro certainly will boom.
Mr. Paul Glhnore In "Tho Mummy

is a play for the home and thero never
was a moro successful piece before tho
public than the above. The vehicle Is
one which ItselTcreates a strong Inter
est throughout, suggesting the possi
bilities, as the consequences of a
feminine love neglected by Its mate
and craving affection from whatever
source It may come. In the play, Lady
Lumley Is neglected by "The Mum
my," so styled on account of his love
for his study and scientific research,
and blindly turns for comfort to "Tho
Huinmy Bird," Signor D'Orelll, a
villainous Italian nobleman, who, by
a clover combination of circumstances
worked out by the Ingenious Lord
Lumley, Is at last shown forth in all
his nakedness. The part all aro In
