The Ocean Has Played Havoe With
Onaucoek, Vs., Oct. 11.?Cohb's Is?
land, the once famous seaside resort, ly?
ing in the ocean off tho coast of North?
ampton, has almost disappered. More
than a year ago the waves began cutting
the island away and juearly every house
was swept away, and nothing remained
but a narrow t idge of barren sand with
one cottage which was built for the Rev.
Thomas Dixor, Jr., but was sold^by him
to C?pt Thomas Smith, of the life-sav?
ing service. Tho recent high seas have
played havoc with all that was left of the
island, and for the last few days Captain
Smith has had a gang of men employed
in moviug his cottage to the mainland.
There is a fringe of islands along the
Atlantic coast extending from the mouth
of tho Delaware to the capes of Virginia.
With the exception of Assotengue thov
are all about 'seven miles long, with a
width raiely exceediugone mile. Nearly
all of them are more or less subject to
changes in form from the corrosive ac?
tion of the waves during severe storms,
but the portions washed away 'are gene?
rally restored by the same agencies that
destroyed them. The t?te.'of Cohb's is?
land In thus being swept away by the sea
is singular as well as sad.

A POWERFUL REVIVAL.
Newport,Va., Oct. 11?Special ?Evan?
gelist Clarence Strouse, assisted by his
sweet singer, Prof. W, E. Burnett, began
services here a week ago. Great crowds
have been Hocking to hear tho young
evangelist and his splendid sermons have
been accompanied by wonderful power
several nights. More than t wenty-live
were happily saved. Mr. Strouse is
very popular here. This place has been
wonderfully different since his glorious
meetings hero more than two years ago,
when ?cores were saved, among whom
are many of our lend In? church workers
and officers. The whole count unity Is
awakened nud great good Is being done.
Mr. Strouse preaches "full salvation,"
and that every Christian must live above
human sin. God wonderfully blessed
this gospel of full salvation and must he
pleased to so put His seal upon it. Many
are rejoicing in the blessed second work,
the baptism of the Holy Ghost, that puri?
fies tho heart from inbred sin, including
all of the leading Christians. Mr. Strouse
denounces all sin in the most uncompro?
mising manner, .and shows up hypocrisy
in the most, searching way, but under it
all can be seen his deep love for lost
souls. The world is dying for this kind
of gospel and it is the only kind that, will
ever move it. The world is tired of sham
and the full gospel Is what it wants and
expects of many of the prea diers who are
tiyinrs to phase, it preachers only knew
it. Prof. Burnett's singing is splendid
and liest of all is blessed of Cod in sing?
ing souts to Christ. He sings alone in
the after service. Many are converted
while be sings. On account of other en?
gagement Mr. Strouse could only remain
through the week, greatly to the regret of
all, closing Sunday night. He will return
next summer, however, to attend the
proposed camp meeting which will t:e
held in this vicinity by a company of our
leading citizens, organized for that prli
pose. The great meeting, though only
lor a few days, will, ever be remembered
with happiness and joy ny hundreds of
