“The Talk of the village: […] On Friday, Feb. 26, our Church was nicely filled again, and we had our new C.A. Lantern used for the first time, illustrating the story, entitled, 'Her Benny.' Everyone that was there declared that it was the best they had ever seen. The pictures shown were beautiful and everything went off first-class. The collection was the best we have had at our Lantern Services, amounting to 11 shillings. But above all, sinners are coming to the Saviour and some of them are learning to work for Him.”
