HOOtl DAY MEETING WAS HELHT GAAR'S Christian Church Evangelists Go to Factory Men. LECTURE ON MONDAY NIGHT The special features of the Wilson Lint t meetings Thursday, were the Hoon daj' meeting held at the shops of Gaar, Scott and Co., and the illustrat ed song at the auditorium at night by Prof. Lintt. Mr. Wilson announced that on next Monday night he would deliver his lecture, "The Death. Burial wnd Resurrection of Christ," the same to be illustrated by H'."i stereopticou slides, the most of them of the famous Tissot paintings of the life of Christ. It may be of interest to lovers of art to say that this is the highest grade! picture made for this kind of work and) -ells at list price for 2 each picture, i Their cost is due to the fact that they are reproduced from the original oil paintings and where colored slides are nsd. the original colors are faithful ly repioduced. Mr. Wilson will tonight discuss the Husilon: "Is there a course that is infallibly safe"; The sermon of last night was a powerful one in that it not alone dealt with a narrative that was full of incident, but was fruitful in suggestion for direct appeal to a pres ent obedience. His subject was "Naa man the leper." At the close of the sermon Prof. Lintt sang the old San key hymn. "The Ninety and Nine," Mr. AVilsou operating the stereopticon for illustrating it. GEORGE H.
