Epworth Leaguers to Meet in Wilmette
Lake Shore News (Wilmette, Illinois), 22 Aug 1912, p. 1

Full Text

The Epworth league of the Wilmette M. E. church has engaged the Rev. Mr. Tyrell to speak on "Mission Work in Africa" in their church at 5 o'clock next Sunday evening. Special invitations have been sent to the Evanston sub-district Epworth league to attend this service, but it is also open to anyone who may wish to come. The stereopticon will be used and the slides are Mr. Tyrell's own, made from pictures taken by him in his work there. The Chicago northern district, comprising about forty-five local chapters, are going to support a medical missionary in Africa at a cost of $1000 a year, raising this amount by each member giving 2 cents a week. One of the worst things in African heathenism is the witch doctor, and the awful tortures imposed on his patients.
