TWO HARBORS, Minn., Oct. 9.- Rev. T. S. Oadams of St. Cloud, who succeeds Rev. W. E. J. Gratz in the pastorate of the First M. E. church of this city, held important changes in the vicinity of Chicago before coming to this state a few years ago. He is a gentleman of wide acquaintance, and has traveled extensively in this country as well as Europe. He came of good English Methodist parentage, having received his education in England and Scotland, and joined the Wisconsin conference about 20 years ago. He has a wife and two accomplished daughters, the oldest being a musician of rare ability. In Illinois he gained influence as the friend and the champion of the laboring people, and as one who has always proven himself a man among men. He comes to Two Harbors with all the promises of a scholar, a gentleman, an earnest preacher of self righteousness, and a self sacrificing companion and friend of all in the common struggles of life. Mr. Oadams will preach his first sermon Sunday, Oct. 17, at the morning service.
