The pastor of the Lexington Metho

the columns of our paper that he trusts
that the members of his church will
lend their aid in every way they can to
the revival services now being conduct
ed at the Congregational church.
One who can not rejoice at the
success of revival services in a church
else than their own Is either lacking In
the true christian spirit, or else in
mental endownment, oft-times both.
Good churches enhance the value of

community where these churches are
situated hence from the very lowest

citizen of Lexington and surrounding
community should lend his aid to the
revival services being conducted at the

to the list of Christians, and Rev.
Miller who is conducting the meetings
will 'close them Sunday night with a
long list of new friends. Proclaimer.
