Finally one of the men walked up to the track to where Humphries was and casually engaged him in con\ersation, while all but one of the other men disap-peartd.

By this time the two were in a dark spot north of the station and the man who had remained at the depot came up behind them.

The boy was so frightened he could make no outcry. .After the robbery the men ran up the Katy track in the direction of the switch station. .\fter the boy realized what had happened he ran buck to the Katy station and gave the alarm. Night officers Anderson and Gotcher were soon on the scene and several men joined them in search of the robbers. The incoming Katy passenger was closely watched but no one answering the description of the roblK-rs was seen to board it. A freight tram .soon came in on the Frisco and this also was watched but with no more results than W'as had at the Katy pasisenger. The officers then went to the negro quarters and found that some strange white men had made purchases at a store down there. From ther'' they went to the Frisco station to watch for the men to board the 11:50 train. At the station they found two strange men in conversation and placed them under arrest. When the train came in a third man arrived lo board it and he wa* also placed under arrest. The first two men were placed in the city jail and the third man turned over to the county.

Its fi'oni overseas duty leaves only the First and Third Divisions on active duty in France. At the openfng of the morning service at the Tabernacle today, Mr. Ramsay inquired if any business house had closed for the hour of service and it was found that the Haynes Hardware company had closed. The audience cheered lustily and the evangelists spoke words of commendation to thesq people for their interest in the meeting. The prophet’s vision of the valley full of dry bones was taken by Rev. Ham as his lesson from the scriptures, and he drew some practical lessons for the present day from this pas.sage concerning the dispersion of the Jew’s. The speaker said in part as follows: “This prophet needs preparation tor a difficult task and so do you need such equipment in Ada today. You nerd courage to meet difficulties, We also live in an age when people have departed from God. For success in this revival yon pastors and your people will need special preparation.    You    will    need    what came to this ancient prophet who pot a vision of God and when he saw God he    saw    also    the    worth of man. “This prophet saw four living creatures, aiKf* they had both hands and wings. Their hands and wings were united. The people in the churches of    Ada must    get in line with God and let God plan for them. You    must    let    God    work through and    w'ith    you.    One    beast had the face of a man indicating that intelligence and reason have their place in the heavenly kingdom. He saw’ the face of a lion, suggestive of the need of courage. You preachers need courage so as not to fear what the people may say. You will bo called upon by some of your leading members who will caution you to put on the soft pedal before this revival goes much further. •‘The prophet saw’ the face of an ox. indicating to him the value of pitlence. It takes patience to win the world tor God. Any quack can get a patient on his feet in three days and he will be dead in three weeks. If (here were as many possessors in Ada as there are professors. you would not need Ham and Ramsay. You pa.stors have a lot of sheep and you’ll have to dip many of them and you had better drown some of them and get them out of the way. “The prophet saw the face of an **jigle. suggestive of aspiration. Tho l ord can do more through a frecklefaced kid like David than through ii piddling king like Simi. By the w’ay. you pastors had just as w’ell kill your prayer meeting and get it out of ifs misery. It is a disgrace to the Lord and    you    are    simply piddling. God is in big and he needs men with a big vision and willing hands to serve. “The wings were joined In the vision seen by the prophet, indicating fellowship. You church members need to be joined to God and then you’ll be in fellow'ship with each other. The nearer    you    get    to Christ, the closer    you    will    be    to each other. The beasts in the vision moved in a straight line indicating directness of action. The preacher who is filled with the spirit of God will speak plainly and will not beat the devil around    the    stump.    A diluted gospel will not save the world. No surgeon ever cut out a tumor with a feather. Yes, I have done a little plain talking since I came to Ada and w’ill likely do a great deal more. “The feet of the beast were cloven feet, indicating reliability and stability. God can’t use a church mein* ber who lives a life of compromise. There were also wheels within wh€*els in the vision as seen by the prophet. This suggests the value of organization. Then there was the    rainbow’    of hope    about    the shrine of deity. May God help you pastors to be faithful watchmen on tho    tour    to    warn your    people.    A cit.v    has    no    need of a    pastor    who can    see    sin    before a layman    sees it.” FMS SI IO POES.
