dess of mirth drags from its place to

Sunday's Meetings a Success.
A little over two weeks of the meet
ings conducted by W. A. Sunday and
F. G. Fischer have past and already
enough has been accomplished to say
that the meetings are a success and
that an infinite amount of good, will
result from the labor, that has been
performed. While the weather has
been unfavorable and other seeming
obstacles seemed to prevent, or at least
retard the onward progress, that might
be anticipated, a sweeping victory for
the churches has been achieved, as
two hundred and thirty-two conver
sions are the results. There remains
nearly two weeks more and with the
united and combined efforts of the
vast numbers of converts added to the
strength of the Christian workers it is
ssfe to say that, The half has not
been told.
Those, who at first honestly and sin
cerely opposed the efforts have given
up that, Mr. Sunday is an earnest, ener
getic Christian gentleman, possessing
a Bpotless character and a sunny dispo
sition, free from any and all eccentrici
ties and that his mission is the sav
ing of human souls, regardless of the
opinions and opposing forces of man
No one who attends his meetings
criticise his work or his methods.
Most of the better classes attend his
meetings regularly and find every ser
mon, profitable, instructive and enter
taining. The stores close at 6:30, so as
to give all a chance to attend and
most people are improving their oppor
tunities and are constant attendants.
Already many of the
men and
women have united their efforts with
the Christian people, while many who
make no profession give words of en
couragement and by their presence
lend their influence to the oause.
His meeting to men only* last Sun
day, was a pronounced success and it
is predicted, that at least, one thous
and men will come out next Sunday
afternoon to his sermon, which will
be to men only.
The music under the able direction
of Mr. Fischer has been a winning
feature, but Miss Larimore, arrived
Monday and already the sweet
strains of her music have touched the
tender chord of sympathy and pene
trated .the inner resources of men's
hearts and make them respond to the
nobler impulses ot their nature.
Saint and sinner should not fail to
avail themselves of the opportunity of
