Brandywine Summit Camp Grounds, August, 18—The camp ground had quite a deserted look yesterday after the crowd of Sunday visitors. No one seemed to be sorry to have quietness once more. The grounds were strewed with remains of lunches and lunch boxes. Revs. J. D. C. Hanna, T. C. Smoot, V. 8. Collins and D. H. Corkrau returned to camp by the early hack. Morning devotions were led by Thomas Fryer, a looal preacher of Chester; 8 lock prayer meeting was well attended. Rev. George Sanderson of Wilmington was in charge. Rev. J. E. Bryan preached at 10.30, from words found in Matthew xvii, 4. "Then answered Peter and said unto Jesus, Lord it is good for us to be here." His theme was "The Christ." After showing the alleged discrepeucies between the different writers to be with out foundation he said; "The Disciples and Jesus went apart from the multitude. J ust s I must Chi lstlans be separated from the world in order that the church may fulfill its mission. The society was heavenly. Jesus leads only into the best society. Saints and angels are the associates of true Christians. The pres ence of Moses and Elias is proof of the immortality of the soul and the resur rection of the body. The transfigured body of Christ is the type of our glori fled bodies. Death does not end all. Christ lives, and because he lives we shall live also." o'c Transfiguration of The sermon was followed by a spirited prayer meeting. Children's meeting at 1.80 in charge cf Rev. V. 8. Collins, was addressed by Revs. L E. Barrett, J. D. C. Hanna and D. H. Corkran. Grown folks as well as little folks, attend these meetings and enjoy the sweet singing .80 o'clock Miss Lizzie secretion meeting in St very much. At Sharp held a con Paul's tent. At 3.80 o'clock, Rev. W. E. Tompkin son of Claymont preached an able dis course from the the first Epistle of John, i. 7; "If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his eon, cleanseth from all sin." He said in part: "The blood of Christ is the cleansing power for our sins. Man is a sinner; the law demands his Ilfs but Jesus offers his 'ife in man's stead. By the cleansing we are made children of God. Walking in the light is having our minds iu unison with God's mind. Sin ners do not walk in the light because they hste the truth. " The sermon was one of deep thought and deeply impressed the audience. Rev. C. W. Pretty man of Fairmount led the young people's meeting, was very interesting. Each person who spoke simply qu ted some passage of Scripture. At Mrs. M. A. Taggart's tent a conver sation meeting was held. The theme under discussion was sanctification. Rev. A. P. Prsttyman preached at 7.80 o'clock from Romans, vii, 16; "I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ which is power unto salvation." The occupants of tent No. 68, Asbury avenue, are having an unfortunate time. On Saturday Mrs. Harris was taken ill and is not much better. Mrs Reynolds, who is tenting with Mrs. Harris, received a severe cut from a falling lamp, and on Monday Helen, daughter of Mrs. hey nolds, fell on a rock and hurt herself so badly that she fainted. Thomas Johnson, treasurer of the camp meeting association, is quite sick Lewis L. Grubb took Mr. Johnson s place to day, receiving rent from the tent holders. 1 This Two young ladies, Helen Lewis and Floy Poinsett, were trying to cross a log over the creek. They lost their balance aud fell overboard. Abel McCrea and Joe Nolan came gallantly to the rescue. John Talley and family of Terra Haute, Ind., have left the camp for Ocean Grove. C. W Prettyman, a former pastor of Union church, Wllmiugtou, but now of Fairmount, is here for the remainder of camp. J. R. Kilmer is doing some photograph ing for his own amusement. He photo graphed all the preachers and their wives n a group iu front of the marquee. Two single preachers were all jwed to be in the group on condition that they stood behind two vacant chairs, as each preach er's wife sat in front of lier husband. Mr. Pickels stood by making valuable about their positions. It ggestlous ill make a very inti resting picture. On William H. Foulk's tent on St. Paul's avenue, is a piece of metal with his name and address thereon.
