And The Baptist Revival Con-
tinues With Increasing
Dancing The Ttieme of Dr.
Porter's Strong Afternoon
The mass meeting'at the Baptist
church last Sunday-afternoon was
the largest gathering during the (wo
weeks the revival has'. been in pro
gress. Th 8ervic-s -were to begin
.'. 3 .'clock, but Log before that
hour the large auditorium, the Sun
day School room and the gallery
were full. Then chairs were placed
all about the house for those coming
later until every available inch of
space waroccupied and many per
sons failed ta get seats &till and had
to go back home.
When the large.crowd got fairly
settled down, and after a song and
prayer, Dr. Porter read a part of
the 4th chapter of 1st Peter and
chose as his text the 3rd ver3e of the
same chapter. In his opeuing re
marks he stated trtyt he was going
to preach against, and that he
had been a dancer himself, as
well as had all the sons and daught
ers of his father's family. He furth
ermore wanted it understood that
he had seen the evil of it and stopped
dancing some time before he com
menced to preach the Gospel. He
3aid he was xoing to speak plainly
and he did not expect all the dac" g
men and women present to quit aft
er hearing what he had to say, but
he believed that many of them
We would not attempt to give a
synopsis of Dr. Porter's arraignment
of' dancing of any and every kind,
but his hearers will bear us out in
the assertion that it was the most
forcible argument ever heard in this
city. If tpose who heard Sam Jones
and George Stewart in former .years
could recall everything they ever
Slid against dancing and put it all
together, they would have only the
shadow of the way the evangelist
painted it,
There was another big meeting at
night, the church bein: filled .to
oveifhwing There were 7 additions
Sunday, making the total 56. 38 by
confession and 18 by letter. Ot the
38coverls 19 have been baptixed by
Dr. Thompson.
The meeting last night was the
only one yesterday, but two sermors
a day will continue the rest of the
week. The prospects are good for
many more additions.
