A large end Interesting congregation
in the Methodist edifice heard sn Im

day of atouement, the sending away of
tbe scapegoat beurlug the tips of the

to Christ as tha atoning sacrifice, to the
rending of tha veil of temple, aud tbe
privilege of every one to enter Into a
knowledge of aina forgiven through
acceptance aud faith In Christ as the Son
of God and tbe Savior of mankind
