His text was from Daniel, 12th chapter and 3rd verse, "And they that be wise shall shine as tlie brisht-ness of the firmament, and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever." Rev. Logan illustrated Daniel paying the penalty of being faithful to God, and said, in part: . "My Christian friends, it always pays to be true.to ones self. The foes within and without are what one wants victory over. Goodness in itself Is not sufficient. Those at the front must strike iu time." He pointed to how Emperor William wanted men tor the Germany army-^^soldiers that are not afraid to strike for the endurance of the fatherland. "Such a spirit is a good example, and is what Christ wants of us-to not be afraid. I believe in display of an interest for all good service and we should assert ourselves. There Is a reward for the worker for those who receive benefits from the hands of the worker. The brightness of the firmament has place on this side as well as On the other. We are delighted to see our folks on tlie night side. Friends, the noblest honors are-reserved for the soul win-ners and those  who   do   good  for PRICES REMAIN THE SAME FOR THIS WEEK ONLY While the grocery inarket has been steadily aclviinciiig-, yet Ave are selling- to yoij at the same low iH'ices we had last week.
