IMPRESSIVE SCENE AT CENTE?

The services at Centenary M. E.
Church last night were largely attend?

ter. By previous arrangement 1t was
generally known that tlie exercises
would be conducted by the reirlng pas?
tor, Rev. William H. Edwards, and this
fact added largely to the Interest of the
Before the bbginning of the services a
deep seriousness pervaded the entire
audience and sorrow -was depicted on
the countenances of many present who
felt that possibly it would be the last j
opportunity they'"'nvould havo to hear'
Mr. Edwards preach from the pulpit of
the church which he lias faithfull and
effectually server as pastor for three
The services were simple in charac?
ter, but thoroughly sjdritual and emi?
nently appropriate to the occasion. Mr.
Edwards read the sixth chapter of
Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians, a
c'horge for the clmreh to put on the
whole armor of God, to have its feet
shod with the preparation of the gos?
pel, which Is the shield of faith and
the sword of the spirit, and above all
to pray for the ambassador of Christ
that he may be bold to make known the
mysteries of the gospel. He made a
clear and lucid application of the les?
son read, showing wherein the church
can malte itself a Btrong tower for the
upholding and defense of the gospel,
and in extending the Redeemer's King?
dom in the world.
The closing invocation was offered by
Rev. E. IT. Rawlings, a former popu?
lar :>astor of the church, but now of
Monumental Church, Portsmouth.
The hymn, "Come Thou Fount of
Every Blessing,", was sung nnd the
benediction pronounced by Mr. Ed?
Immediately after the close of the
service Mr. Luther W. White rose and
requested the congregation to be seated.
He then turned and addressed Mr.
"I have been delegated by the church
to express to you. Brother Edwards,
the love and affection that the congre?
gation has for you and yours, und to
say to you that under your faithful
preaching of the gospel the church has
been lifted to n high spiritual plane,
nnd each individual member has pro?
fited by your wise counsel and godly
"As a further expression of our high
regard for you and your wife I have
been requested to present you this tes?
timonial of esteem from the church."

richly engraved, and a Handsome set of
AN AFFECTING SCENE.
Mr. Edwnrds wns so deeply effected
that It was several minutes before ho
wan able to speak- He then said:
"I thnnk you sincerely for this out?
ward expression of your affection, and
can only say that while the gift is
highly appreciated, my greatest desire
and happiness would be to know that
I havo been the means of leading some
of vou to Christ."
At the close of Mr. Edwards' re?
marks the mcmberstfwent forward and
bade him and his wife an affectionate
adieu, people, pastor and wife weeping.

money with which to prepare himself
for the examination," he continued.
"However, the President and I are
going to attend to that," he added,
looking at the son of his old friend with
a suspicious moisture in his eyes.
"Now," snid the Admiral as he turned
away, "let the people of the country
