Wecona iieetlng.
The meeting conducted the past week at
Secona by Rev. J. E. Foster, the pastor,
was one of the most succesful held in this
vicinity in a long time. There were 27 ac.
cessions to the church on profession of
faith, 26 of whom were baptized by in.
inersion at Clement's mill last Sabbath
morning. rho very best of order and at
tention prevalled throughout the meeting.
Mr. Foster preached two sermons a day,
but rarely occupied more than twenty min
utes In their delivery. The house was
crowded every night. The singing was
fine, and the preacher awfully in earnest.
During the singing, while mourners were
invited to the bench, he would be in one
of the aisles, and his clear ringing voice
could be heard above the singing, pleading
with the sinners to come, and pressing
home to the conscience some strong point
suggested by the text. In fact he was just
using the method which Dr. Girardeau said
once, he felt like he wanted to use. How
can any preacher believe his own words
and not go into the aisles, or even out of
doors and endeavor to snatch sinners as
brands from the burning? The parable
says they were commissioned "to go out
into the highways and hedges and compel
them to come."
