What has proved to he the greatest
revival ever held in this .section of the
country closed last night in the. M. E.
church. The meetings began Sunday
evening, March 8, with Evangelists
Galloway and Alexander iu charge.
From the first their success has been
phenomenal, over lifty having ac
cepted Christ during the first week of
the meetings and from 3 to JJ5 have
come to the altar in each meeting.
Personal work was a great factor in
the success of the meetings.
The churches have been greatly re
vived and the members have gone to
wont as never before for the salvation
of men Ouu little girl only six years
old crowded down the aisle and pleaded
with net ather to accept Christ. Men
are al no altar one night and the
next are out trying to persuade their
friends to come. Instead of the loud
cations. Having been saved from a
dissipated life he knows how to reach
and help young men who are down.
He preaches with such earnestness and
energy that the perspiration pours
from his face, and the breathless hush
that follows his sermon attests the
conviction that his words have pro
duced Art the choir .begins an invita
tion song Christian men and women
swarm in the aisles hunting for friends
to bring them to Christ.
Mr. Homer Alexander is also a
preacher of power, having held some
the most succissful meetings in this
section of the country. He Iris also
been associated with some of the most
successful evangelists in the middle
and eastern states, lie was for some
time employed by the Association of
Evangelistic Missions, a southern or
ganization with headquarters at Louis
ville, Ky. While in that work he took
part in a simultaneous mission in Lit
tle Rock, Ark., In which Dr. It. A.
Walton, C. N. Hunt (the lawyer and
evangelist), Dr. Jus. M. Gray of ISoston
and other noted workers engaged. Mr.
Alexander is a Presbyterian, while Mr,
(Jalloway is a Methodist, so they are
well suited for union meetings.
It was through the inllucnce of the
meetings held by Mr. Alexander at
Dewcese where Ucv. Hill used to pas
tor that a call was extended to these

talking and swearing that used to be
heard men are talking of religion.
Little groups gather on the streets and
earnestly discuss the meetings. Never
before was there so much interest
taken in the religious life. Every one
is sorry that the meetings are over. It
is impossible at this time to estimate
the results of the meetings. One thing,
however, is certain: Inavale has started
on a new career. It will take some
time for things to adjust themselves to
the changed conditions, but all are
looking forward to a brighter future.
The ehurches are busy taking care of
the new converts, who arc Keeking ad
mission in great numbers. The at
tendance at some of thu services was
bo largo that both the Methodist, ,un(J
Christian churches were filled to over
flowing. Many people went home un
able to obtain standing room.
Rev. B. S. Galloway'ls a big-hearted,
plain-spoken Christian gentleman, Ho
Is thoroughly consecrated to his work
and posses those rare qualities that fit
him for the work of an evangelist. His
sermons abound iu sparkling wit,
striking illustrations and terse upph
in appealing to men. It had never been
the fashion for men to tahe interest in
religious matters until these meetings.
Three years ago Inavale was a "joint
town," but when our pastor, Uev. I?.
It. E. Hill, came here at that time he
began a successful war against the
bootlegging business and by Ills brave
light he succeeded in enlisting a fol-

lowing against the joints. Gradually
he has won over the people to his side
and many who were once his enemies
have become his friends. He has been
preparing the way for his revival all

As yet there seems to be some misunderstanding
as to the time of the beginning of our evening
entertainments and Saturday matinees. Be it
known that the evening performances begin at 7:30
sharp, giving hourly performances; that is, one
entire and complete performance every hour.
Saturday matinees will run from 2 to 5 p. in.,
giving hourly performances, the same as the even
ing performances one complete show every hour.
Ladies and children are especially invited. In
connection we have a "Rest Room" for the ladies
and the babies which is free for your use.
Price to any show 10 cents.

Since the call was made Mr. Alexander

it is certainly n good combination.

are earnest soul winners.
There is nothing of the clownish cle
ment in their work. Everything is
reverent and altogether fitting to the
dignity of the church of God as well
as arousintr to life and action. Our
church members have been awakened .
to the needs of personal work, prayer
and Hible study as never before. The
rule of these evangelists is to so enlist
the individuol in these things that the
interest will not cease with fhe close
of the meetings. People who never
were known to talk on religious sub-,
jeets and peruse the scriptures are now
discussing these things as though they
were the most interesting things in
the world to them. Men are awaking
(on the streets, in thu shops, the homes
and on their farms) to the fact that
the church people are interested iu
