building will be 100 feet square and
will comfortably seat 2000 people.
Rev. Wilhite states that the building
will be as warm and comfortable as

town have been invited and it is be
lieved that a chorus of 250 members
will be secured.
All who have heard Rev Wilhite
are.loud in their praise of him as an
eloquent, forceful and pleasing preacltf
er and say that he is remarkably en
dowed with that' greatest gift for an
evangelist, personal magnetism. Any
one who talks to Rev. Wilhite will be
convinced of his sincerity and firm be

Moses stated that he owned property
In Syria to the value of about $15,000.
