To have visited St. Peter's A. M. E.

of Rev. Thomas, Rev. R. H. Williamson
came from Joliet, III., to take charge of
the church. He found everything in a
very bad condition. The members were
discouraged and scattered some in oth
er churches and many staying at their
respective homes on the Sabbath day.
He has. by Christian examples shown
the people that success awaited them.
The attendance .and interest has been
manifested by, a steady increase until
lart Sabbath evening a congregation of
about 250 people sat and listened to an
eloquent sermon and beautiful singing.
The event of last week among the

about $245 cash was gathered up, and
about $50 subscription. The next and
last on the programme was an address
by our eloquent lawyer Mr. Wm. R.
Morris but owing to the lateness of the
'hour, his remarks were very brief. The
