uo uncertain manner. The audiences
have beau larger aud iuapiriug.
Several ministers of the other churches
have beau in attendance, thus show
ing a most brotherly spirit. J. N.
McConuell is a speaker of no mean
ability and a man of very pleasing
personality. The memliers of the
church have been thus far nnusually
well pleaaed with Mr. MoConnell's
presentation of his themes. Mr. Mo
Connell's strongest ability is popu
larity with men. During the larger
majority of his meetings he has had a
large attendance of men. The evan

of hie sermons and in their delivery
he uses the straightforward conver

presses one at once. One very inter
