Six Weeks' Revival at
Church of God Has
Attracted Many Trail
DR. YATES TO BE
Pastor of Fourth Street Church Will
Address Men's Meeting in After
noon While Mrs. T. H. Clark Speaks
to Women of 'Cross Kiver Town
Enola, May 28.—The six weeks'
evangelistic campaign being; conducted
in the Knola Church of God, which will
come to a close next Sunday evening,
is believed to be the most effective
campaign of the sort ever waged by
any single church in Cumberland coun
ty. A religious feeling seems to have
been installed in the residents of the
town, and many have hit the trail. The
c>mipaign is under the personal super
vision of R. H. Derrick. Respite the
inclement weather of the past few
weeks there have been constant in
creases in attendance at the meetings.
' : " . .
THE REV. MB. FA.Ri.lNi*,
Pastor of Enola Church of God
Last Sunday evening Mrs. T. H.
Clark, of Harrisburg, a prominent
church worker and a former slum work
er of Lancaster, occupied the pulpit.
She lias given her entire* time to the
work during the past week, delivering
masterly sermons each evening. She
lias accomplished a wonderful amount
of good am! much praise has been given
tier for her ardent endeavor anil faith
Next Sunday afternoon at 3.15
R. H. DERRICK,
In Charge of Campaign
o'clock she will give an address to
women only at the Knola Evangelical
church. At the same hour the Rev.
William N. Yates, pastor of the Fourth
Street Church of (lod, Harrisburg, will
conduct a Men's Mass Meeting in the
Church of God. For both these meetings
special music has been arranged and it
is hoped that the residents of Enola,
South Knola and the surrounding terri
tory will turn out in large numbers.
There will be tho usual morning
I mHI !
JOSEPH M. FLEMING
Chairman Press Committee
church services at 10.30 o'clock and
U. H. Derrick will give a special pre
pared address at this time. At 2 o'clock
in the afternoon the regular meeting of
the Sunday school and in the evening
at 6.30 o'clock the Christian Endeavor
Societies will assemble.
The object of this campaign from
the outset was to form a closer rela
tionship with the Church of God and
the people of Enola and \o bring them
into the church. The success accom
plished has been marvelous, for not
only have they come into the church
but have given their co-operation in
the movement and have gone among
the yardmen and shopmen and per
suaded them to join in the cause.
The Rev. Mr. Farling, pastor of the
church, is much gratified with the
great progress made and in a state
ment at one of the meetings said he
finds words wholly inadequate to ex
press his thanks to all who have so un
tiringly worked and made the cam
paign one of the greatest ever held by
any single church in Cumberland
The consistent and faithful work of
<T. M. Fleming, chairman of the Press
Committee, is one worthy of comment
for the able manner in which he han
dled all the affairs assigned to him
throughout the entire six weeks. Aside
from his daily duties with the Pennsyl
vania Railroad ompany lie has given
all his time and attention to the cause
and to Him belongs much credit for
the new lights presented to tho church
b_v the employes of the Unola Car
At the evening services Sunday
Mrs. Clark will again speak. Although
this will end the six weeks' campaign
it is by no means the end of the under
taking to build up a larger member
ship at the Church of God.

This year "A Bachelor's Romance"
will bo given in Columbian Hall at 8
0 'clock. This is the celebrated comedy
produced by Sol. Smith Russell for so
many years with great success. Mr.
lius ell played the part of David
Holmes, a quaint, odd character. He is
a bachelor, editor and literary critic,
so absorbed in his work that the out
side world has little interest for him.
In fact, he has even overlooked the cir
cumstance that his ward, Sylvia, who
lives with a maiden aunt, has outgrown
childhood, and he still scuds her dolls
and other toys.
An up-to-date course in domestic
science, plain sewing and basketry is
announced for next session. Miss Lena
M. Brooker, Detroit, in charge. A
course in china painting is added to
the art course. Miss Rebecca Diehl
Zug, Mechanicsburg, in charge. A
course in Spanish will also be given.
French and German will be taught by
native teachers and these languages
used in class.
The year just closing has been one
of the most successful in the long his
