Tht worst sinner in Alia is not the murderer who kills h,s fellow man, the gambler who gets thai which * Goos not belong to him. the thief who steals his neighbor'® property, the robber who in the darkness of night takes that which does not belong to him. tV? adulterer v ho betrays and damns the souls of women, the drunkard who loses all respect for self and for others ‘the harlot who plies her trade at the expense of men aud women and humanity. The worst sinner is the respectable, moral, upright, airable man of influence who uses his influence against Jesus Yhr.s. and the gospel of Christiania These are the sentiments given b> Hex. ll j- Ham at the revival meeting last evening. The theme of his sermon was* “The Meanest Man in Ada and .1* read a portion of Scripture concerning the servant who knew and did not the will of his master and the servant who slightly knew that will and did the best he could with what he knew. In answer to the question as to who is the meanest man in town the speaker said: “There are degrees ot guilt her and there will be degrees of rewards and punishments hereafu, God judges not as man Some people men count worthy of love are counted worthy ot scorn . him with whom we have to do.

It is more polite and my advise to cussers is to get some concentrated lye and wash ou their filth' mouths. You followers of Christ, do not permit swearing in your presence without rebuking “put anj other thing before God and you are worse than a murderer or an adulterer. Go to shows on Wednesday night when your church is holding prayer meeting and you! show'    what your God    is.    Go    to a ball game on    Sunday    and you    show that Jehovah is not first with you. A real Christian does not need a law to make him put God first any more    than I    need a    lew    to    make me love my wife and little daughters.    Crime    against    the    nation is greater than a sin against an individual and crime against God’s great est law is enough to make you the greatest seiner in town.
