The Btiiiguiimrg promises contained
n this extraordinary notion , which
contained beaidos that the recently
allayed Salvation Army fever : is
it-am breaking nut in the city , led a
crowd to the scene of action yister-
dnjr afternoon. Salvation market was
easily identified by the presence of
.wo stalwart policemen at its door ,
and the liberal display cf banner * )
n its windows , announcing "Salva-
iou for jou ut 8 o'clock to-
li ht. " Within , upon rude bonolus ,
ho only Beating accommodations of
ho hall , waa seated a mixed company
of 400peoplolargoly made upoflcurioua
ookcw-on , with u liberal sprinkling nf
erioua , devout looking fjcoa , mid
icro and tliuro a roor , dissipated
rretoh whom the strange surroundings
lad awed into reflection. Tliu con-
rasts of dress and nf countenance
roro many and striking.
Shortly after 3 o'clogk , noise with
out caused all eyes to turn toward
ho door-way , through which there
ininodiatoly strode , at a brisk gait ,
a short , thick-set man of thirty , in
cap and uniform , chouting a'salva-
ion army song ut the top of his
oico , Ho was followed by a Btrangr
[ Jing procession of twouty-fivo men ,
vomon and boys , bearing aloft a red
lag , and each vicing with the leader
n power of lung , but with little at-
empt at agreement in tune. Mount-
ng the platform , where scats had
> eon reserved for thorn , the army
mtered upon the "Bproo" of the af-
prnoon by singing from the ealva-
ion army song book a hymn with the
efrain ,
"Then a noldier I ulmll be
Happy In Eternity , "
11 which many of the audience joined ,
standing-upon the front of the plat-
orm during the singing , and marking
imo with the most violent arm gym-
rustics , were Iho four loaning war
riurs of the "blood and fire brigado.
Captain Irons , Captain Light , Captnii
Pilgrim and Shouting Annio. Th
l.nt named are women of nbou
fifty jcatfl , both of swarthy com
plcxion , evidently iuurod to at
the atmocphetic variations of out-doo :
campaigns. In speaking , they cxhib
Jted almost maaculino poncr in voici
and ge&turo. Captains Irons nut
Light arc both undersized , but goo (
shunters , and prone to violent haiu
gymnastics. Captain Irons is recklessly
lossly frco with his "h's. " and when
ho speaks the other Captain stands a
his side , supporting him with smile
and voluble "amons" and "hallolu
jahs. "
After the opening hymn , knco-dril
was gene through with , each of tin
leaders praying with unction , Ihei
companions punctuating their utter
aticos with sighs and groans , center
lions of face nnd body and ngonizo (
intorjoctioiiB. The songs , however
gave fulKir vent to those noisy pro
penalties which are a largo pirt of tin
Outfit of these enthusiasts. The nerds
while not alwaya distinguished by tha
delicacy which might bo looked for ii
spiritual song , are wonderfully direc
and never forgot to rhyme. Hero if
n couplet that was aung with mud
fervor ;
"Sty old compiut n , faro you well ;
1 will not go with joU tolhell. "
Another favorite hymn had this reference
eronce to the gentleman below :
"Tha devil nnd mo wo can't ngrc ? ,
For I hate him nnd hu hntea me. "
This vindictive spirit cropped ou
in another song , beginning :
' 'Wo'll rll the old chnript along ,
But we won't lung on Lehiud , "
And then continuing :
'If tha devil's in the way we'll roll it o\or
him. "
These worn sung with the swayiiif
of the body , stamping of foot anc
clapping of hands , and that p cculii
delirium of ccstacy characteristic or
the colored brethren. Occasionally ,
Shouting Annie would clacp Captair
Irons' hand , and others , catching the
infection , would proceed to congratu
late their neighbors in a promiscuous
fashion. Sandwiched between the
songs were impassioned exhortations
based on the Bontimonts just sung.
Captain Pilgrim and Shouting Anir'o
were most vehement in their appeals ,
charging up and down the platform ,
throwing their hands aloft , and anon
casting themselves into their chairs
and burying their faces in their
hands. At intervals they stopped
short and broke in upon some familiar
hymn and thus the services alter
nated. "I'll Meet My Saintrd
Mother Over Thero" was sung over
and over again , finally moving many
of the audience ' to tears the only pa
thetic touch 'in iho whole scene.
When the now recruits ot the army
wore called to rise and give testimony ,
ono poor follow told how glad ho was
that the salvation army had como
around. Ho didn't go home with a
black eye on Saturday night any 'moro.
rf.h"othor , Captain 'Joe , the'cinlvaCion
carpenter , had boon gathered in by
the army. "I don't suppose , " said
ho , "there ever was a worse man in
Philadelphia than mo. " "Never killed
anybody , did you , Joe' " interrupted
a voice from the audience , "fto , I
never killed anybody , but I was an
awful drunkard , and no drunkard can
inherit the Kingdom of Heaven , " an
swered Joe ,
"Praise the Lord ! " shouted Shout
ing Annie , and immediately impro
vised :
"The nn'oon-keepers ' thoy're a-cryinjrout
'Cause the Salration Army la a-goin
about. "
A young girl on the platform tasti
fied : ' 'I mean to go to heaven , and I
don't ' caru what the people say ; they (
can drag you to hell , but they can t
drag you out. " "Amen , " "Praiso
God , " "Hallelujah , " came from all
over the platform , and then the en
thusiasm found rent in the strain :
"I tumbler ! in the fountain
And He wnshedmy idns away. "
Two young men Blattered into the
hall at this point and begin inter
rupting the speakers with maudlini ?
blasphemy "God bless those young
men , " said Shouting Annie , immedi
ately starting up a aong , Presently
the young men subsided into u
drunken s'upor ' , only to awake moro
belligerent and demonstrative than
ever. Ono of them attempted to embrace -
brace Captain TIOOB , but found himself -
self in the fit rom ; nrms of a policeman
who hurried him oif to the atation
The inevitable collection came oirly
in the proceedings. Shouting Annie
passed the lint around among the
n.oii with an appealing , "

The harvest of cash was scant , and
piincipally copper.
"Charlie , the Salvation Wonder , "
pioved to bo n proiocious youngster
of ton yeara. Ho sang , ' Only an

voice , and them proceeded to exhort
the jioople uith all the earnestness of
a practiced pulpit orator.
At the conclusion of the "Sproo , "
Shouting Annie had a heated argu
ment with a sister who upbraided her
for selling hyinn-bonka find other lit
erature on Sunday. "It's all for the

questioner was still unsatisfied , nnd
took her leave of the shouting Bistei ,
with u vague idea that somebody else

The City of Yazou came down last

on the Tallahatchio is much bettor

able land is above water , whore much
stock , has been saved , but up to this
point the land is under water and the

Buffering terrible. The condition of
the people along the river batik is bad
