The Revival at the Hampton Advent Christian Church that began the evening of Sept. 25th, continuing up to and including Sunday, Oct. 14th, with Evangelist I. S. Crecelius, closed Sunday night, with spiritual interest at full tide.
Several took a stand for the first time, and others re-consecrated themselves to the master's service. Christians of other denominations attended nearly every service. The church is greatly revived, and is stronger than ever to combat sin. We thank God for it, and for His Holy Spirit which was with us during the Campaign. We look for larger results because of these meetings. Any church who desires reviving, will do well to secure this able and consecrated man of God.

The temporary committee is to announce that community pictures will be shown at the Centre School on Friday of this week, as announced last week. Everything will be ready, and Mr. Douglas will be here from Boston and will put on a varied program for the school in the afternoon. In the evening the program will consist of Pathe news, athletic film and a five reel film entitled "Anna Belle Lee". The pictures are free, and the public is invited. This is a community affair, and will be handled by an organization representing community interests under the direction of the School Board, announcement of which will be made as soon as the organization is complete. The support of the community is solicited in the interest of community welfare. The price of the pictures after this week will depend on the expense of running first class films, the object being not for a profit in dollars and cents.
