- Rev C. . Hidden, the evangelist.,
must 'iave been gratified with the
demonstration of affection toward
hiim a.t his farewell service in the
Mission last night. The place was
crowded with people, who vied with
one another in their efforts to show
their regard for the man who has
preached to them tenderly and .who
~has gone in and out of the Mission.

the old, sweet gospel message on his
lips. He was presented with flowers,
given a rising vote of thanks. people
came forward with money to temp.t
'him to prolong his stay, they tender
red him an informal receptsion, and
wh~en he asked how many would try
to so live as to meet him in heaven,
the audience rose en masse to his
call, which striking demonstration so
affected t'he evangelist that he was
unable to speak further. He resum
ed his seat in tears, and the e were
few dry eyes in the house.-Lewiston
As a Temperance Speaker.
Dr. Hidden is an easy, fluent
speaker, using chiefly the conversa
tional method, in a sort of heart to
heart talk with his 'hearers. At times
he has -the air and manner of a law
yer pleading at the bar; then, :he
brea-ks suddenly into a beautiful
word picture: and an instant later is
relating some touching incident that
causes his voice to choke ~and the
tears to stream do.wn his cheeks,
while sobs are heard all over t-he
place. There are passages in which
he is keenly sarcastic or caustic, but
he is never funny and makes no at
tempt to amuse. The talk is plainly
a serious matter with him. and his
evident sincerity wins his hearers
and holds their attention from start
to finish.-Newburyport (Mass.)

inarkable man. was the comment of
one of the prominent Spartans in
the great crowd w'hich thronged the
hall of the Y. M. C. A. on Sunday.
'his comment was. voiced with em
phasis which conclusively showed the
tremendous impression made by the
gifted speaker. Dr. Hidden came to
S.partanburg unknown, but it is safe
o say that a well advertised return
-isi would easily fill the largest hall
n this city. A man of splendid
ental endowment, he has by pains
taking study acquired an ease of
anner and grasp of thought which
preeminently makes him a speaker
both of power and popularity. When
istening to his eloquent reasoning
ne does not wo::der that as an infidel
pleaker~ he drew thousands to his lec
tures. It is easy to understand how
the conversion of such a man should
have created a stir among all Chris
tian pe.;pkI. For an honr and fiye
niute5 he held spellbound :his great
udience of me.n in the Y. M. C. A.

For over an hour he held spell bound
an audience of men which completely
packed the hall. It is doubtful if
such an addsress ,bas ever before been
gie'n in that city. A deep thinker,
ith a superb scientific training, Dr.
Hidden possesses the personal mag

His amazing experiences give to his

born of deep spiritual sincerity which
Iattracts and convinces. Evidently

his family, saying that it was better
to live alone than to be compelled to
