About 4,000 persons attended the camp-meeting
Sunday, coming in on special trains
from Covington, Lexington, Stanford and
Maysville. The day was dry, dusty, cool and
peculiar. Dr. West, of Nashville, preached
one hour and twenty-five minutes in the
morning, which pleased us very well, because
Ave didn't nave to hear it; and we
think if ho had cut it Just one hour shorter,
it would have pleased the 2,000 in the auditorium
Dr. Hannah, also of Nashville, studied the
comforts of his audience closer,and preached
a shorter sermon in the afternoon.
The assembly at the camp though large,
was orderly to a pleasurable extreme, and
showed up less of that detestable dude and
dudine dash, gewgaw apparel and gum-chewing
frivolity than in years gone by.
Everybody appeared to be n the big behave
but a few dudes on the thains who had to
have their annual show-off of idiocy. This
show-off will take place, though the heavens
wabble and threaten to go crooked.
On account of the Rey, DeWitt Talmage,
who preaches to-day and to-morrow, t!e
crowd will be large, and of select people,
minus the dude and dudine elemont. The
old, settled and well-behaved middle-aged
public will congregate in large numbers to
hear this eminent divine many for his
sterling worth, and many through morbid
curiosity. The eminent visitor will give the
camp a fame far away, and will attract
strangers from all sections within striking
