Evangelist Ham gave a most wholesome address at the tabernacle last evening on behalf of those converted and reclaimed in the revival now' coming to its close. Prof. Ramsay stated during the introductory' service that he would decline to receive anything during the meeting in this city because of certain persons misunderstanding J the matter as arranged in advance of his coming. His words evidently met with disapproval from the Taal audience made up of people who admire and love him for his work s sake. Rev. Ham took as his text thee words: “As. therefore, ye received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him.” With these words of advice for the new converts he began:
“I take it for granted that all of you in front of me have faith in Jesus Christ. To make a success of your Christian lives you will have to know what salvation is. You are now regenerated by the implantation of a divine nature. It is not a reformation of your old nature, but a new nature Imparted by Jesus j Christ. Do not be alarmed if you find two natures at war in your life. These two natures, the carnal and the spiritual, will be apparent since you have been born again. You have enlisted in the army of the Lord, and it is up to you to make a good soldier and win the victor’s crown. You started the good light of faith when you were born again, and the battle ends only at death or when the Lord comes.
“You are in to fight the world, the flesh and the devil. If the flesh inside will not let down the bars for the world and the devil outside. then the devil will not have sw'av of your life. God help you not to starve the spirit to feed the flesh. May God help you not to give any occasion to the flesh. All the while remember that God the Father. God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit fight on the side of your soul. He ran conquer appetites for a time, but a drunkard might be sober for twenty years and then catch a whiff of breath from a bottle and find himself instantly at a bar and drinking. Do not trifle with sin. Do not let the crouched tiger in your nature have any showing, or it may get you yet. Do not try to see how' far you can go into sin without falling. Avoid the appearance of evil. Keep your body under.
“Evil thoughts will come into your mind, you say. Judge it as a sin right then, Judge whatever seems as if ii might become sin. Some say they have a fit of temper. Confess it at once. Do not keep a malicious thought in your mind any more than you would keep poison in your system. Do not have to fight jealousy? Pray for the object of your jealous passions. Pray for the persons of whom you may be envious and do them a kindly deed. That will help. Now you are to join the churches Sunday. In this do rot fail, and decide at once to do your own paying as well as your own praying. Begin at once to tithe your income and you will prosper. A stingy old miser is the hardest sinner in town to get saved. Invest something in heaven and you’ll be ready for heaven when you die.
“Are you given to pride? There will not be much beauty to be proud of when you have been dead ten days. The worms will make a sight out of your beauty very quickly. Some are already asking: •What if I fail?' get right up and start again. You will never succeed at any task if you give up at one failure. You will have to judge sin every day, because the Chrisman life is positive rather than negative. Do good every day and do not forget to read the Bible and pray. Shun worldly pleasures and evil companions. Let no young woman here se-lect as her companion another girl who jumps into any stray automobile at any hour of the day or night You young men had better stay by yourselves than associate with loafers. God can’t use an idler. Read the Bible daily and pray both

CHICAGO, Aug. 16.—Urgency of the food situation resulted in a decision by federal authorities to advance the date of convening a federal grand jury from Sept. 12th to Sept. 3rd, Colonel H. R. Harris, junior in charge of United States District Attorney Clyne’s office during his absence in Washington, stated today. The principal action will be consideration of evidence in the prosecution of Chicago packers on criminal charges. Thirty federal warrants for arrest of hoarders and profiteers awaited District Attorney Clyne’s signature today.
Jugo-Slavs Send Note to Allied Peace Conference
By th* Associated Press
PARIS, Aug. 16.—The Jugo-Slav delegation here has issued a note elaborating its message to the peace conference against recognition of Archduke Joseph’s regime in Hungary. The note describes archduke and his supporters as Magyar chauvinists and declares his administration would be a restoration of the Hapsburg authority, endangering Jugo-Slavia and other nations freed from Austro-Hungary.
H j a I rn e r Steffanson. the noted Arctic explorer, who is at present in Seattle, is working on a plan to raise immense herds of reindeer in the far north in an effort to start a new meat supply and reduce the ever-increasing cost of all kinds of foodstuffs. The reindeer of the Arctic regions is milk-giving, meat-producing, and has a hide which makes fine leather. Mr. Steffanson is also planning the herding of the Arctic musk-ox. The ox bears three times as much wool as a sheep. All shipments will be made through the port of Seattle and Mr. Steffanson believes that within the next ten years more than $8,000,000 worth of meat will be shipped through that port. This photograph of Mr. Steffanson was made recently in Seattle where he is working out details of his enterprise and interesting local capital.

Live with him and let him be your teacher.”
