Closed Sunday Evening
Special meetings which have been con
ducted in the Congregational church for
past two weeks under the leadership of
Rev Perry A Sharp pastor of the Con
gregational church Marshall Minn
came to a close last Sunday evening
with a well attended service an earnest
and helpful service special music
While the meetings have not been
marked by large audiences and numer
ous conversions the gospel has been
preached with earnestness and power by
Rev Sharp and at least many Christian
people of the city have been benefited
and strengthened by the same if those
for whom the services weie especially
provided were not reached in such num
bers as was fondly hoped
Rev Sharpe has during these meetings
strengthened the friendships formed
during his meetings of three years since
His is the service of a Christian gentle
man of ability and tact vigor and whole
bOiutfconservatism which yields nothing
of real faith and principle and appeals
not to sensational and cheap devices
The Word has been fitly spoken and
itwill not return void -
