Some of the Roanoke county farmers

Evangelist Clarence B. Strouse will
preach at the holiness rooms.in the Allen
Block tonight. Song service at 7:80
sharp. Preaching at 7:4f> o'clock. This
will be the last opportunity to hear Mr.
Strouse for some time, as he leaves to?
morrow to commence a meeting at Ash?
Seventeen attended noon prayer meet?
ing yesterday. Several new faces and
some familiar ones that had beeu abesnt
for some time ??-ere seen. Evangelist C.
.B. Strouse commenced to read the lesson
of tho day, Jno. Oth chapter, but was so
carried away with the suggestions of the
chapter that w hen ho had concluded his
reading aud running comments the half
hour was spent. Everybody ought to
hfyve heard him. To day's lesson is the
first half of the tenth chapter of John.
At the meeting held on Monday be?
tween representatives of Roanoke College
iind Washington aud Dee University,
Hampden-Sydney neng represented by
proxy, arrangements were perfected for
an intercollegiate held meet, also a per?
manent organ/.atlon. It will be im possi?
ble to have the first annual meet this year,
as theV. P. I., and Hampden-Sydney both
considered it too late to put a team in
the field. The efforts out forth this year
will probably bear fruit next year, when
the Intercollegiate Association will be
formed. Roanoke College will hold their
field day on Saturday, May 1. A . large
crowd is expected and au effort will be
mado to have the fare on the street rail?
way reduced so as ,to accommodate those
coming from Roanoke city. This event
will be a success and some records will
probably be lowered, as Roauoke College
has excellent material in her track team.
Besides the standard events there will be
many others of an amusing character.
