The evangelistic meetings in charge
of I. K. Honeywell and P. P. Hilhorn
legan last Friday evening as adver
tised and when the evangelists came
upon the platform in the big taberna
cle they were greeted by an audience
of COO people. About 100 singers were
on the platform and from the singing
of the opening hymn to the final "?od
lless you, come again tomorrow night"
of the speaker, the meeting moved
with a swing that demanded the inter
est of every one present. Mr. Hilhorn
proved his power as a leader of singers
from the very beginning and the aud
ience were as ready to respond to his
urging U "Sing it out" as was the
chorus. He even succeeded in getting
it very creditable effort from the min
isters on the platform although they
were taken by surprise.
After a thirty minute song service
Mr. Honeywell stepped to the front of
the platform and delivered a strong
sermon on the character and need of
a revival. During the sermon he ar
raigned the churches and christian
leople, charging the need of a revival
to their lax living and lack of interest
in the religion they represented. He
struck straight from the shoulder and
bis words stung at times, but not one
to whom they applied could deny their
On Saturday evening a large and in
terested audience listened to a sermon
in which the speaker again spoke in
very plain terms to the members of
the churches. He evidently believes
that any revival that comes must be
gin in the churches. On Sunday the
first meeting began at 10:45 a. in. and
was attcnaed by at. least 800 people.
The sermon was a powerful exposi
tion of the doctrine of prayer, during
-which the audience was urged to get
right with (Jod and to spend much
time in prayer. He said that a life of
tlds kind was sure to bring results In
conversions. At 3 p. in. a children's
meeting was held and a large number
of older people were in attendance
with the boys and girls.
Sunday evening during the song ser
vice a sudden thunder storm came up,
creating the usual uneasiness among
the timid In the audience. Kight here
Mr. Hilhorn's power to hold an aud
ience was shown. Hymn after hymn
was sung and the audience of 1,000
people joined the chorus with a will
that drowned the noise of the storm
in the volume of music. - Although
the tabernacle leaked in yltejjno one
was uncomfortable anil all were glad
they remained. On Tuesday evening
the audience gathered slowly and for
forty-five minutes Mr. Hilhorn led the
chorus in song and the value of the
two hours of rehearsal which they
had received on Monday evening was
shown in great improvement in the
quality of the singing. Following the
song service Mr. Honeywell preached
a telling sermon using the home as a
theme. He pointed out plainly the
need of christian parents and especial
ly christian fathers in the home and
attributed the fact that so many young
people go wrong to the negative in
fiuence of unchristian parents. The
sermon was a strong plea for christian
On Tuesday evening the sermon was
preached from the text, "There was
no Room in the Inn." It dealt with
the things that drive Christ out of the
church life of today and makes people
Sunday christians only. Thursday
evening's sermon was also directed to
the church members. There will be
afternoon and evening meetings today

The waterworks question occupied
the greater share of attention during'
the session, and it was decided to'
proceed with the work as already be
gun. It is believed by the majority
of people that plenty of water can be
secured at the present site of the
water works. Others contend that,
the water should be piped from the
springs just west of the Hedge farm,
north of town. Still others favor a
location in the south part of town.
Another vein of water was struck
yesterday, and the probabilities are
that there Is plenty of water near the
present site of the plant, If only some
practicable method could be devised
for utilizing it.
The annual estimate of expenses
was made, and fixed at SH,ri'.0.

the round house Monday afternoon
and landed six of them In jail. The
bunch had been drinking rather freely
on the proceeds of a begging trip made
through the town by two cripples who
were of the party. They had been

to jail to either work out their fines
or subsist on bread and wnter for the
