Dear Herald: You are always glad
to hear the news. It is now our privi
lege to report one of the best meetings
this church and community has ever
had. Brother L. M. Roper, of Peters
burg?, came to us the first week In
September, for eight days and nights
preached the gospel with unwonted
tenderness and power. He captured aM
our hearts from the very start. Ev

I have n>>t heard one single adverse
criticism either of his preaching or his
The pastor counted himself specially
happy to have him as a guest in our
home. His unaffected courtesy, ('brist

and good humor make him a welcome
guest in any Christian home. My chil

and it would not surprise me if he
makes missionaries out of more than
one of them.
Results of the meeting: Twenty-five
additions, backsliders reclaimed, the
church greatly revived, and the whole
community deeply stirred.
I predict that as Dr. Roper's evange

tacle In Itself is an attraction that
should bring thousands of visitors
from the surrounding country. It is
beyond question the greatest produc
tion of its kind ever seen in America.
The world's most skillful scenic ar
tists, d:>stumers, property-makers,
chorus directors and stage managers
were engaged to mount the produc
tion. A stuge bigger than a hundred
ordinary theatres was built and made
portable so that It can be conveyed
from town to town and erected each
morning In the main tent. Thus the
circus proprietors have made It pos
sible for those who live In contribu
tory towns as well as in the large cit
ies to see this magnificent wordless
piny with Its cast of 1,200 characters,
a ballet of 1100 dancing girls, a grand
opera chorus of 400 voices, G00 horses
and a train load of special scenery,
costumes, properties and mechanical
devices for producing such stage ef
fects as thunder, lightning, storms,
fires and the< sound of battle.
In the old market place of Roen.
Franc e .there now stands a monument i
by which the French of today have
sought to redeem their part in the
execution of Joan of Arc. who on
May HO, 14111, was burned to death on
the false charge of heresy after hav
ing delivered her country from the
English and having restored the crown
to Charles VII. History records but
(he meager facts of this strange hero
ine of eighteen years, who led the
mules of France victorious through
English invasion, and then, deserted
by all, even the indolent monarch
whom she preserved, died by the cruel
cst torture known with the name of j
the master upon her lips. Unsung in
poetry the name of this simple peas
ant girl has come down through the
ages to be revered as that of a saint,
nnd whose wonderful powers and
whose bravery are verily believed to
have been of divine inspiration.
On the triumphant Incident? the
victorius engagements, the final de
feat of the English armies, and the
coronation of Charles VII, all achiev
ed by the frail Maid of Orleans, has
been founded the inspiring spectacle
which gives RingUng Brothers' circus
a new significance and makes an
attraction such as the world in search
ing for amusement has never before
The regular circus program Is more
than ever attractive. Its company of
'M~> fornten artists, its double menag
erie aiiu its new street parade will
prove a great surprise to those who
attend from this city. The event is
one that should not be missed. 1l-2t
