CORINTH Blessed is the man that walk eth not in the counsel of the un godly nor standeth in the way of sinners but his delight is in the law of God and in his law r doeth he medtate both day and night. The increase in membership for the meeting that has jurft closed at Corinth was 5 instead of 3 as we rported last week, The increase for the year was fifteen. That is good for a lit tie church but there are still more to come in. The prayer meeting has done a good work for the church, and we expect to keep it going for the next twelve months ev ery Sunday night and we invite everybody that is close enough to come and take part with us for there are more sinners in our midst that we sure are in terested in and if they will come and take an interest in the prayer meeting they can be saved in the prayer meeting just as good as if they were in a protracted meeting. So let us all take hold and do our part and the Lord will save those morners that was left at the close of the meeting. The sick is some better at this writing.
