meetings at the church next month. An invitation has been extended to Major W. E. Penn, a well - known and able evangelist of Eureka Springs, Ark., to conduct the services. At St Paul's Church. The pulpit at St Paul's Methodist church was occupied yesterday morning by Bev. T. F. Pierce, the presiding elder of the South Atlanta district. The eloquent divine took as a text the 33d verse, 16th chapter, of John, "These thing! have I spoken unto you, that In me you might have peace; in the world thou wi:t have great tribulations, but be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world" Every mnn has trouble born in him and of him. If tbe master bad it, we may be sure that we, his servants, who are decidedly Inferior, will. Affliction and trouble are the only telescope that uncovers the virtues that are resplendent in the life of Christ This tele scone will likewise reveal the patience, submission and fortitude which tend to make a religious being. By peace is meant all possible blessings, such as spiritual light, strength, etc. A Christian complains that though the bent of bis life is toward good, yet he isjoo weak to carry out his intentions. Ah, my friend, you have not consulted the true specific, the peat panacea— the scriptures, which so enable a man to overcome his frailties. Third Presbyterian.
