EVERAL CITIZENS WHO HAVE
HEARD HIM EXPRESS VIEWS
AS TO HIS ABILITY.
As the time approaches for the Biil
in meetings to 'begin, the Interest
grows and considerable comment on
the preacher and his methods are
heard upon the streets. There are a
number of people In tho city who have
had the privilege of hearing him and
attending the BulginRose meetings
In other ' cities. They are loud In
their praises of tho evangelist and
the permanency ot his results.
Mr. II. A. Cherry of Iawton, who
was hero yesterday, says, "Dr. Bul
gin held a meeting for four weeks
during tho month of July, and while
there were many conversions and ad
ditions to the churches, the most
permanent effect of the meeting was
the great moral uplift of the whole
city. Dr. Bulgln has the ear of the
cducatel and thinking people of Law
ton, and those in Ardmore who are In
clined to be skeptical and doubt the
truth of Christianity, should hear him
by all means."
D. G. Whlddon with the Hamilton
Shoe Co., formerly of Little Rock,
Arkansas, says: "It was my privilege
to bo In a three weeks,' meeting led
by the great evangelist at Little Rock
some time ago, and I believe there
will be a large number of conversions

when he arrives. He is certainly ex
plicit and does not fear to say what
he thinks. Ho will go to the bot
tom of wickedness in the city If any
exists and I feel that he will do a
great work here. I cannot speak
too highly of the work of Dr. liulgin.
He Is the man Ardmore needs to
touch the unconverted and arouse the
Mrs. Lillian Douglass at the Hardy
Sanitarium, formerly of Bartlesvllle,
says: I attended every service of Rev.
Bulgln three weeks' meeting at
Bartlesvirie and It was a great bless
ing to the town. His workers' class
is the best I ever saw. A young man
of that city who is a great musician,
sang throughout the services and said
that Rev. Bulgln was tho best choir
master he ever saw." Two of the
pastors of the city, Revs. Gray and
Lewis, have been with Dr. Bulgin in
meetings, and hoth are enthusiastic
about his preaching. Rev. Lewis
states that Dr. Bulgin's question box

meeting. Anyone who has a question

meetings by the preacher. Rev. Mas

says he has heard Dr. Bulgin three
times and regards him as one of the
strongest preachprs anions
