Bishop Coleman a Busy Man While Here-AU the Services Well Attend edA Class of 15 Confirmed. The mission at Grace Church, conducted by Bishop Coleman, of Delaware, closed last Sunday night, when a class of 15 was confirmed. Bishop Coleman while here was untiring- in his labors for the cause of Christ, sometimes conducting seven or eight ser vices a day something a lit tle remarkable for a man of his age sixty odd years. He is a plain though forcible speaker and at times eloquent. The services for men at the Court House last Sunday evening was well attended as, in fact, were all the ser vices during the meeting and we do not believe there is a man who was present at this service who does not feel that he was benefited by having- heard the talk by Bishop! Striped DimityS, Coleman. A number of Episcopalians from other, towns attended the mission. Bishop Horner and Maj. Weston were here during the latter part of the meeting. All are glad that Bishop Coleman came and his visit here no doubt resulted in much good to the community in general. We have been furnished with the following record of attendance at the services during the mission: Atregu lar church services 3354, children'sservices 1238, Court House (women only) 150, Court House (men only) 400, State Hospital 200, D. & D.
