That tb revival meetings are destin

last evening at the Memorial Christian
church, when several conversions were
the result of the strong preaching of
ltev..D. S. Toy. ; The meetings in tin
western district seems to be the most
largely attended and give promise of
bringing greater results than the oth

"ng. The audience seemed to be in a
zcspouslvc mood and entered heartily
nto the spirit of revival which was
felt to pervade the very atmosphere.
Mr. Toy makes his appeal to the hu
canity of his hearers and makes no
Utempt to play on their emotions by
ihe use of much music and loud shout
ins. He wins his audience to him by
lis. calm, serene ' demeanor and the
?lear manner; m which he points out
Mr. Hobt;on is keeping up the inter
est at the Broadway Presbyterian
church, although he did not have as
good an attendance last evening as
-here was cn the opening night
Evangelist Davidson, who assists him
n the singing, is aiding greatly to the
popularity of these meetings.
At the Spencer Memorial church
Messrs. Wheeler and Christy are get
ting their audiences well into the spirit
of the campaign and some good result
arc expected from this district.
- Brlshtnra.1 of Life
The text for Mr. Toy's sermon was
supplied from Daniel XII., 3: "They
that be wise shall shine as the bright
ncss of the firmament; they that turn
a:any to righteousness as the stars
forever and forever."
."The thought of brightness," said
the evangelist, "is cne that Is found in
every walk of life, but is generally of
a worldly kind. The kind referred to
n the text Is a brightness which eman
ates from God himself."
Mr. Toy then went on to tell why
cne should strive for the brightness of
the next world, which is only attained
through a true belief in Jesus Christ,
the Savior. He told how Christ died
for sins and that He was raised from
the dead for justification. "It is only
through His merits," the speaker main
taincd, "that we may enter the king
dom of heaven.
"We are rewarded in heaven," con
tinued Mr. Toy, "for the good deeds
accomplished by us on earth. Win
ning of souls here brings us blessings
while on earth and insures us a re
ward in heaven."
The stories and illustrations used by
Mr. Toy to supplement his remarks
were all most appropriate and striking
He spoke at some length of how little
attention is paid to the salvation of
those we love. "Salvation should be
gin at home," the speaker emphasized.
"If you have a son, daughter, or, any
dear one at home who is not saved, do
not rest until you can feel that he Is
living a life in Christ such as will as

Ilunmnlty of t'lirlxt.
In the middle district Rev. Tilman
Hobson had a fair sized audience to
hear his address and the music of Mr.
Davidson, the singer who assists him
in the work. Mr. Hobson has a calm,
smooth manner of speaking which ap
peals to those who hear him. The af
ternoon meetings began today at the
First Methodist church, where a meet
ing will also be held tomorrow afternoon.--
1 The . evangelists will address
the meeting at Broadway again this
The subject of his speech was "The
Woman of Samaria." He told the
story of Christ at the well, and drew a
beautiful lesson in courtesy from
Christ's treatment of this woman. He
showed by many instances in the bible
how Jesus set an example of virtue and
courtesy by His whole life. "Jesus was
as human as anyone," said Mr. Hob
son, after speaking at some length on
the disciples of Christ and how trying
they were to the Master. v "Never
doubt the humanity of Christ, for the
bible abounds "in proof of the fact.
Many instances speak of Christ being
hungry, thirsty or tired. This in itself
proves the humanity of the Savior, for
it would be impossible for God to be
come tired, thirsty or hungry. He was
at times immeasurably tired and worn
out." In drawing comparisons between
the woman of Samaria and the ladies
of today, Mr. Hobson brought out
strongly the fact that as much can
still be done for Christ as did the wo
man at the well. Naturally, it must be
done in a different manner because
times are different and customs are
not the same.
Answer to Prayer.
The eastern district turned out a fair
crowd to hear Messrs. Wheeler and
Christy, who had charge of the meet
ing at the Spencer Memorial church.
A meeting was held yesterday after
noon at the Edgewood Baptist church
which was addressed by the pastor,
Rev. H. B. Hazen. He made an inter
esting address on the subject, "Jesus'
Teachings on Prayer." The evange
lists will conduct a meeting at the
same church tomorrow afternoon, re
turning to the Spencer Memorial for
the evening services.
The topic on which Mr. Wheeler
based his discourse last evening was
the question, "Does God Answer Pray
er?" He answered the question most
emphatically in the affirmative and
gave numerous instances of striking
examples of the answer to prayer.

Souders is one of the oldest members

Majestic Said to Be Finest. The
Majestic theater, wiiich was thrown
open to the public on Jan. 1, 1900, and
has been acclaimed the finest theater
In the United States, seems to fully
merit this distinction. The manage
ment has just issued a souvenir book
of exceptionally artistic merit, charac
teristic of the theater and the aston
ishing elegance of its appointments.
This book of 50 pages, with an art
cover and other embellishments by
Ralph Fletcher Seymour, the well
known designer, contains, in addition
to a succinct description of the build
ing and its features, many beautiful
half-tone engravings, giving a fine idea
of its architectural and decorative
beauty. The first theater to be erect
ed under the new and exacting fire
ordinances of Chicago, it is believed
to bo the safest theater in the world,
as it certainly Is the most substantial.
Located on Monroe street, in the very
heart of the retail and financial dis
trict, it occupies probably the most
valuable plot of ground in Chicago,
being surrounded by broad street and
alleys, thus providing instant egress
from every part of the theater, a con
sideration the value of which cannot
be overestimated. Built with the
heaviest structural iron ever put in a

POSSESS TRUE MERIT
Chicago building, and constructed oth
erwise cf stone, bricK and concrete,
with five times the exit space required
by law, this theater presents essential
characteristics that may worthily com
mand public attention and interest.
That the west should confessedly take
the lead in theatrical construction may
be a surprise even to the citizens of
the great west, but it cannot fail to be
a gratifying circumstance as a new
evidence that "Westward the course
of empire takes its way."
Specifically speaking, the Majestic is
the largest theater in Chicago, provid
ing eligible seats for more than 2.000
people. It is distinguished not only by
its massive elecance. but by the beauty
of its decorations. The prevailing tone
of the color scheme is old rose, with
ivory and Roman gold tints in high re
lief. The velvet draperies are of mag
nificent tone and quality, forming a'
welcome relief from the chaste aus
terity trf the magnificent marble lob-i

That so splendid a building would
not be erected for commonplace or un-j
worthy entertainment must be obvious
to all. Vaudeville as offered by the
important and responsible managers in
Europe and America has become a.
andard and recognized recreation for
all intelligent classes. Presenting di-
ersified specialties by experts of in
ternational fame, vaudeville in its Dcst
estate, as offered at the Majestic, is a
boon for men, women and children.
