Work of Local Ministers
Editor New
It may be of interest to your readers
who are interested in the progress of
the cause of Christ if I give you a brief
account of my work for the past year
The territory over which I travel com
prises nine whole counties and parts of
five others contains twentythree cir
cuits and about one hundred and twen
ty churches It is traversed by both
Green and Cumberland rivers with their
numberous tributaries making it ex j
ceeding difficult to travel especially
during the winter season On account of
bad roads and impassable streams
Iyear i
year that is closing I alyepiew f
quarterly meetings pre he jnjiMirty
250 times and traveled 360W iiie p is
is about an average years work >
The preachers in the district have
been faithful and the minutes will show
that this has been one of the most sue
cessful years in our history With a
few exceptions the financial reports
from the various circuits will show a
decided advance over any previousyear
Tne partial report irhand justify the
statement that not less than 1000 peo
pIe have been converted and added to
the church during the year
At this rate it seems that we would
soon be able to make a better showing
in this field than we do at present and
many wonder why we remain in many
places comparatively weak This con
diti n of continued weakness is explain
ed by the fact that this is a shifting S
population We are unable to keep the
young people here after they are saved
The ambitious young people go to oth
er fields where they can find remunera
tive employment Thus the church
here is losing her life but is constantly
enriching the life of the Church abroad
This district hasa membership of
7951 and contributed fast yearif r min
i terial support 961010 for niisssions

Rev R L Tally who is the Evange
list for the Columbia district has also
been very successful in his years work
and when he reaches Conference he
will have a very satisfactory report to
make He has been evangelizing in
seven counties and has assisted in
many very successful meetings During I
ing the year he preached 223 sermons
witnessed 149 conversions one hundred
of whom joined the Methodist Church
He collected for missions 734 92 Rev
Tally does not know whether or not he
will be return d to this field but should
he come he will be gladly receded If
he goes elsewhere the people will soon
know that they have an earnest minis

The Revival Continues
The Evangelistic meetings at the
Union Presbyterian Church near Gra
dyville have taken the proportions of
the old time revivals for which this
church was famous in other days The
attendance has been good from the be
ginning but on Sunday the capacity of
the large house was taxed to the limit
notwithstanding the constant rain Bpth
preaching and singing are of an unusu
ally high standard and together with
the excellent work done by interested
church members all churches being
represented the best of results are but
natural Up to this writing there have
been some twentyfive or thirty public
professions of Christ with ten additions
to the membership of the Presbyterian
church The meetings will probably
continue throughout the present week
Three services are held each day with
dinner on the grounds
