Rev. W. H. Evans, known east of the Mississippi river as “Wild Bill,” will reach Farmerville June the 28th, to assist Bro. Barnette Wright in a series of protracted services.
Mr. Evans is one of the leading evangelists in the South; his congregations always number up in the thousands. He is a fine preacher, profound theologian, gifted orator, and one of the finest personators before the public.
Rev. Mr. Powell of Nashville, Tenn., for whom Evans is now conducting a revival, says, “Wild Bill” is the only man he knows of who can run a circus, conduct a concert and hold a revival at the same time. Of course the people of Union Parish will not lose this opportunity of their lives.
Every body from fr and near will be here the first Saturday and Sunday of the meeting to hear the famous relative of Lorenzo Dow, and having heard him once no one can resist the temptation to hear him regularly.
