as we come. Writing from Kingston, Ga., Feb. 4, Dr. J. B. McFerrin says: We have a good meeting in progress. It has been going forward since Sunday last. Large crowds, mostly soldiers, are in attendance. Many penitents, some conversions, and a few backsliders reclaimed. Last night five asked for membership in the Church of God. We give the applicants choice of Churches and receive them into various Christian organizations-different divisions, but one grand army. From Dalton, Feb. 3, Rev. A. D. McVoy sent good tidings: We have a large Brigade church built, in which we have been holding services for two weeks.
