itr. Evans was a member of the Execu
:..j rnminitltc in charge of tho Moody-
t Bankcy campaign .and chief usher at the
areat meeting), no was nt mm nmo
'. vice president of the V. M. O. A. in this
city, later becoming president of that in
stitution. The following was terltlen by
Aim ol th i request of the Evening Ledger
. and is pittd exclusively in this paper.
When the Moody and Sankcy revival
camptilsn opened In rhlladelphla on No
vember 21. 1875, llio wholo ntmoaphero of
thij time, political, commercial, social and
rellglotii, was decidedly different from
that of today Wo wero then but ten
j ears removed from tho Civil "War, which
had left the country full of mourners, and
but ttvo years from a great financial crlsla
which had brought widespread depression
and loss. As a. result of theso conditions
the people woro tender and accessible to
tho serious questions of llfo..
Into this atmosphere came Mr. Moody,
wlth,hl's earnest, serious, persuasive man
ner of prqachliie. am tho record of two
spectacularly successful years of cam
palgnliiB in Great Britain.
Mr. John Wanamaker had purchased
the old freight depot which occupied the
site upon which his store now stands, and
offered tho bulldlnc for use In tho revival
campaign, postponing business. A great
auditorium was constructed within tho
wall? ot the depot, leaving an Inside lobby
20 feet wide Tietween It and the brick
walls- There was a seating capacity for
11,000 persons and there wero six wide
aisles, Three hundred ushers, divided
Into gro.ups of 100 for each service, and
to policemen handled the crowds, and
although on several occasions thcro wero
'fully 13,000 persons In the building, there
was no serious accident or Inconvenience
to any one throughout tho eight weeks'
Expenses Were $35,000
The expenses of the revival, such as
alterations to the building, Its furnishing,
printing, clerical work and the like,
amounted to about 535,000. This sum was
raised by private subscription, no collec
tions being taken nt the meetings except
at the closing service of the campaign,
with which was blended the anniversary
or tho Y. M. C. A., when a well organized
appeal was made for that association
and about (100,000 was collected.
Another feature of these services was
a choir of 500 voices, organized and led
by William C. Fischer, a well known
rhlladelphlan, who served gratuitously
and with great success.
I have no record of the conversions at
the meetings; Indeed, I bellevo that no
complete record was ever kept, although
they amounted to several tnousana.
responso to tne appeals mauo uy
Moody nt tho close of the services tht
who came forward wero
committee rooms behind tho platform,
and were judiciously assigned to personal
workers, who gave each one Individual
'attention, taking the name and address to
be Immediately forwarded to the pastor
Of aomo church and giving words of coun
sel, advice or prajcr.
A Great Evangelist
To describe Mr. Moody and his work I
can find no better words than those or
the Rev. Dr. Washington Gladden, who
"Mr. Moody's preaching was also most
persuasive and convincing. The style was
always homely; tho rhetorical structure
tytun often Imperfect; but he knew ex
, actly what he wanted to say and he drove
l- straight at It, with unswerving directness.
' Ufa theology sometimes bore a traditional
sediment; the great themes of human
need and the dlvtne compassion were pre
sented with such clearness and fullness
and tenderness that the medieval deposit
"bovo all, the spirit of the man was
o sweet, so tolerant, so kindly, that he
drew all heartB toward him, Ho had no
bitter pr censorious words to speak about
those, who differed with hlmsilie kindled
no suspicions or hatred In human hearts;
he hurled no maledictions."

THE '"BILLY" SUNDAY BIBLE CLASS
CENTRAL TRUTH OF TOMORROW'S LEBBON.
(February SI, mi International BertesI Samuel tv, Uti, IS.)
By PEORGE G. POWEY
The Bible is emphatic upon two Unca of teaching which, run parallel
throughout the whole book; first, the reicard of the righteous, and second
the nuM.jfcmenf of the tricked. This lesson on the. death of Ltl, the old
nriest. and. his tveo sons, Uophni and rhinehas, also
would conclude that it was just as H should be.
The central truth of the lesson is plain. Qod's Word is infallible in its
proclamation of a law which is both natural and spiritual, that "Whatso
ever a man soweth that shall he also rap." The law of retribution Is just
as natural and reasonable as the law of compensation. It is the law of
cause and offset. Vice and virtue arc the two paths of human life. Th
whole Bible ts written o shout the folly of vim and the wtidow of virtue,
because of what the end shall be. Human experience oonfirms the truth of
the Bible, "The wayes of sin U death.

Tha medical work dona Uy missionaries

In their being regarded In a friendly light
by these reputed fleroe tribesmen when
tha latter invaded the territory near
Urumia, according to a bulletin Issued by
the Presbyterian Board ot Foreign Mis
sions. Tho flight of 10,000 refugees from Urumia
on the approach of Kurdish and Turkish
troops is described In a letter written
February 1 by tha Rev. J. R. Barnard,
an English missionary of the Archbishop
ot Canterbury's Mission, who left In Jan

It was announced that Urumia was to be

taken In good part by the Kurds, and It
was reported In SuJ Bulak that Doctor
Bhedd had offered J20.000 for their release,
which pr:bably proved a beneficial exag
