The evangelist then told of a friend of h'S wh was in the lumber business, but who resolved to just give himself and everything he possessed to the Lord, aud who did so, and finally when his lumber interests became involved and he had manv trials, among them the loss of his beloved wife, said, "Cole, I can stand it I have Him. "Oh," said the Major," what a bless ed asurance, aud now of you busiuess meu who think religion will do well enough for women but not for you, let me tell you. you are making the mistake of your entire lives. I know of a man who invested $5.00, which he said was for the Lord and in less than two years, he sold it for $22,000. Praise the Lord, of you love Htm. He will be your strength. All things work together for them that love God. Please do get hold of Him this morning- If you do not confess what the Lord had done for you, you will soon have nothing to confess. There is such a thing as dedicating yourself to Him." The speaker then went on to say that it had been his own experience to be physically weak and that he had always gone provided wi h medicines enough to found a drug store until at one time while attend ing a certain church service where tes timonies were being given, he had asked what he should do for his physi cal ills and had finally just taken them all to Him and had according to the instructions in the bsok of James been annointed with oil. Since thai time he had not been a si we to medi cine or physicians and had beeu ena- pbled to toil unceasingly. He had given "himself soul and body to the Lord, aud the Lord had carried him through. In conclusion the evange list made a powerful plea to his hear ers to come and place themselves be fore Christ no matter what there needs were and remember that it was not it, or it, or it, but Jesus who was every thing aud Jesus will fill the bill. Prayers were offered by Rev. Wilkins, Rev. McFarlane, Rev. Davis and Dr. Bruner, and several came forward to the alter, after which the meeting closed. Rev. Mc Fat lam preached in the Calvary church every evening last week and had large and atten tive audiences. His subject for Friday evening was: "What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul," and he handled it in a masterly manner. His explanatory i'Uistra tioos were apt and to the point, bis logic convincing, and his appeals pow erful and impressive. At the conclu sion of bis remarks, quite a number, among them Dr. Fleischman, Dr. Carr, Jack Newton, and others went forward and took the evangelist by the hand with words of congratula tion for his very able effort. THE COLORED FXLK8' MEETING Last night Major Cole, accompanied by Rev. Jones, Mr. Al rmkam Meyer, aud a few others, went to the African M. E. church and addressed a large audience of colored people. The ser vice begin by the singing of 'Awake and sine the sona of Moses and the Lamb.' This was followed by a verv excellent prayer by a blind man named Wallace Smith. "There it a fountain tilled with blood" was sung, and then John Wesley led in praver Rev. Jones announced that they had beeu having good meetings on this side, and now Major Cole had come to address them." Major Cole said, "I want to keep my mouth shut, and I want Jesns to do the talking. I don't want any Cole here, only just Jesua. We have been haviug lots of 'old time religion' in our meetings and I want you to sing about it Do you sing it here? If you don't I will teach it to you.n And thereupon he strnck up "Tis the old time religion It was readily suug and was well given. While the song was being sung eight people under conviction went to the front The evangelist again said, "A brother remarked over in one of the other meetings, 'It is not alone the old time religion, but is good all the time." "The old time religion was again suue with much enthusiasm." "I would not give a cent for reli gion if it were not worth something." said the evangelist, "It saved me from sin. It shall be called Jesus, why? Because it saves from sin. When our sins are washed away then our heaven has begun and we reign over the world, the flesh and the devil.

The following sketch of the evau gelist will be read with much inter est by not only his friends here, but all over the country. He really com menced in its public character in November, 1874, though he had pre- iously en many occasions actively labored at revival ervices, especially those conducted by Major Whittle and Mr. P. P. Bliss. In that month he was at Mo'ioes, 111., and there a blessed work of grace was witnessed. Four weeks were spent there and the secular newspap :rs bore testimony to the spirit of wonderful har mony and union prevailing and to the number of dissipated aad repro bate characters re.ormed. Thence Major Cole went to Rock Island, and rafterward to Barraboo, Wii,, at the last-named place in connection with Mr. John V. Forewell. In March of 1875 Major Cole went to Louisville, Kv.. bv an invitation, where he sident of a bank, if he has Jesus, labored with Major Whittle and Mr. cry then was "Wonderful ! wonder ful ! that Jesus should save me. It is a miracle, a miracle !" He then went out in all haste to search for his brother and to bring him under the same influence. At Glasgow, a large meeting was held of Christian workers in conne Cou with Major Cole's services, when many interesting testimonies were given. Imong these was that of Rev. Dr. Cairns especially remarkable from the fact that the caution and moder ation which are prominent character ises of Scottish character are strongly developed in Dr. Cairnes. He said be had felt great pleasure and thank fulness in being associated with Major Cole in Berwick, and he could say the same in behalf of the whole evan gel itis committee in that town. No impressiou made during the whole period of religious awakening had been more interesting than those con nected with Major Cole's visit. They bad meetings which quite surpassed those held in any o.her place he had seen in the profound impression made by the singing and addresses. Similar testimonies were given at Perth, York, and other places, and so urgent were the requests Major Cole received to continue his work, that he abandoned his long cherished desire to visit the continent of Europe, and spent all the time he had at his dis posal in Great Britain. He returned to America amid the kindest wishes of his British friends, anu their earnest prayers for his continued usefulness. Sine Major Cole's return he has conducted special services in many parts "f the country, of which one of the 1 iost remarkable was that at Adrian, Mich., where he now resides. There the meetings were held in the Grand Opera House, which was crowded nightly by an audience of 1500 . ople, and as many more went awaynnableto obtain adrr'ssion. Dr. Talmage thus wiites of his work ;i Brook I yd. New York: 'I commend this evangelistic trio to all whom I may know. Their is in their singing a pathos and power different from any music I ever heard. They live the gospel as well as sing ana preach it."
