Mr. and Mrs. Wilborton, the sing
ing Evangelists, are holding a revi
val meeting at the Free Baptist
church. Mr. Wilborton is a peculiarly
forcible speaker aud Ins addresses
are full of good logic aud sound com
mon sense. He has a way of taking
a chapter of scripture and expound
ing it an idea which commends it
self to all thinking people. Nobody
can blame a minister for not "stick
ing to his text" when he is confined
to one or two passages, but when he
has some latitude allowed him as
four or five verses the poorest
speaker can entertain Lis hearers.
