District Superintendent Has a Word
to Say About Evangelist.
The following letter was recently
received by Rev. N. M. Jones relating
to Evangelist Osborne, who is mak
ing such a deep impression now in
the union meetings in the M. E.
church. It may seem to a few of the
fearful that our "Whirlwind of Ora
tory" may smash things by his
"unique methods." These words
ought to set the alarms of the most
timid at rest:
North Yakima, Wash., 4-14-10.
The Chicago Drummer Evangelist,
T. H. Osborne, was with us nearly
four weeks in a revival campaign. I
have been in the ministry twenty-two
years and have employed many evan
gelists during that time.
While most all of the men who
have helped me have been exception
a-ly good, it is no disparagement to
them when I say I consider Bro. Os
born the best I have ever employed.
Earnestness, consecration, spirit
uality, and efficiency marked his ev
ery effort during the entire meeting.
Bro. Osborn is neither a time serv
er nor a man pleaser, he preaches the
word, backed by the word and leaves
the responsibility with God.
If there were more men of his type
there would be less worldiness in the
church. Qod bless him. I love him.

"POLLY OP THE CIRCUS."
Story of Human Interest to Be Play-
Ed at New Ridgeway.
Miss Ida St. Leon in Frederic
Thompson's great success, "Polly of
the Circus," is a true, clean American
play and perhaps the best description
that can be given to the play which
will be the attraction at the Ridge
way on Thursday evening, January
11, coming here with the endorse
ment of a solid season's run at the
Liberty Theater, New York, and
another season equally divided be
tween Chicago, Boston and Philadel
"Polly of the Circus" is the clean
est and prettiest story told on the
stage in many years. There are no
high sounding dissertations on mar
riage and divorce, no acute analysis
of emotions, but just a compelling
human study of a tender child born
and reared among the garish life of
the circus tent, thrown by accident
into the home of a young clergyman
and awakening to love, to knowledge,
to hope and to God. Miss Ida St.
Leon will appear as Polly supported
by a company by all odds the best
acting organization in America.
