Hartman orders his paper Back to Siloam Springs ark., which looks As if Oklahoma has not pleased Bim. A i suffered habitually from constipation. Doan a Reg lets relieved and strengthened the bowels so that they have been regular Ever . E. Davis grocer Sulphur Springs tex., 5-5 a big sunday. The United presbyterians had a big Day again sunday. They closed their special meetings sunday evening with a monster service at the first Church having perhaps the biggest crowd that was Ever in that edifice. It Bolds a big crowd and Many More were crowded in than the cd Orch comfortably seats. Chairs were packed in till we suspect the Law was was badly Lieut in regard to keeping aisles open and yet we apprehended nobody will make Campit int since the ends will justify the Means no doubt or or surely faced an audience when a be entered that Church that would inspire any speaker even if he bad less ability Tao he Bas. He thanked the preachers and the newspapers Aud the janitor and the Ushers and the choir for their Aid in braking the meetings a Success and he thanked the reporter who made daily reports of their meetings but said no word of encouragement to the one Lone reporter who feebly wrote up is great meeting but it is ail forgiven and forgotten Long ago. His text was a what will Yoa do with Jesus. A he prefaced Bis remarks with a Short historical review of the incidents of the trial and conviction of Jesus. Pilate s wife cad a dream Aud she told Ber husband about it Aud she said to him Quot have thou not Ming to do with this just person Pilate did not understand it but be was badly lightened. He was Between the Devil and the deep sea. On one Side were the jews clamouring for blood and on Tho other Side Caesar from whom he got Bis office of governor. Finally he bit upon a splendid plan namely be would release Barabas a malefactor and hold Jesus Aud made his proposal to them but it was rejected and they chose Jesus. And the preacher said Pilate is not the last politician to get into trouble for halting Between two opinions. Pilate said Quot what shall i do with jeans which is called Christ and they cried out Quot crucify and he said be was talking now to two classes of people the saved and the unpaved. He talked first to those who Call themselves christians who can Trail the name of Jesus id the dust. They can desert him and he gave a vivid account of a deserter and of the repugnance of us All to deserters. He told a Story of Cromwell when be was bombarding King Charles in his Castle and made no headway. He marched away Defeated and met an old shoe in a Are who told him where the water Supply was that furnished water Tor the King and be told Cromwell if be cat that off he would soon starve them out and Cromwell Hung him. That sounds like an Odd Story to us. We thought everything was fair in War but we will not argue with a preacher although we never heard that Story. Of he will remember King Alfred did differently or the people did differently. He was disguised As a spy and spied out King gut Brums troupe Aud then went Back to his army and won toe Battle and was proclaimed a hero. We do not like the Story of toe Shoemaker and never read it in Auy history. He says we All despise Benedict Arnold and that is even so. And be told us he admired Napoleon and he shows Good triste there. He told now Macdonald shared the English and was about to give up when he happened to see Napoleon with his glasses watching the fight and he Shoales to Bis men to Quot ovine on our commander is watching As and we can die but never surrender. Quot so How can we when men will die for Napoleon Bow can we desert Jesus. He told a Story of an old rebel Soldier who met Gen. Lee after the War and he asked him to Stop and he tied his horse for Lee and then be said i Waul to give three cheers for Marse Lee right out Here in the Woods where we Are All alone and if a Man can do that for Lee Why not stand a for Jesus who is infinitely better than All of the rest Pat together. Right Here came the Climax and he stopped preaching and asked Bro. Fisher to Pray it was a dramatic moment. Bro. Fisher prayed and then or. Orc proceeded with the Sermon. And then he turned to the unsaved and told them that they could do one of three things they could either reject Jesus who had died for them or they could neglect him or they can accept Bim. The jews rejected him and Many gentiles reject Nim. He says he does t see any nobility of character in anybody who does not openly profess jeans. Aud be told of a girl who denied her Mother to her guest because her Mother was badly disfigured from a Burn in which she got badly burned saving the daughter. He says Jesus made the sacrifice for us and we ought to do As much Tor Bim. He told of a Man woo went oat to fight the Battles in the civil War for a Man and when be came Back minus a leg the Man refused to admit Bim to Bis Boose. Jesus substituted for us and will we shut him out he says the Only thing Between non Church members and cell tonight is Jesua Jesus says Quot if any Man Bear my voice and open the door i will sup with him and he with and then he proposed that be would make this offer that Ibe people might accept Jesus just As they expected him to recognize them when the death Angel hovered Over. 1 fifteen came Forward for the prayers of the cd Orch and be told them to join some Church at once. He made it emphatic that they did not have to join any particular Church but they ought to go into some Church and that right off. He got #840 for his two weeks work. Last thursday morning the Royal neighbors started on a fishing party they left town about half after seven o clock that comes pretty Early these Nice Cool mornings but any Way there was about fifteen went from town and about that Many joined them on the Way the Tolas from town took horns and whistles of All descriptions and the noise they made every time they came to a farm was nothing Small of my Bow the chickens Aid Fly and the bogs did run was something awful. We have Lieen wondering Ever since what the people along the Way thought of the outfit we Don t believe anyone cared because they started oat to have a Good time and that is what they were having. We believe therm Crone walked the biggest part of the Way every time we looked Back he was running along Side of the Road cutting Willows to make More whistles for the crowd or he was gathering wild Flowers along the Public Highway to decorate their wag Onette with. We went West on the by Gourney Road out 11 we got two Miles East of Dublin Theo we went South we Don t know How Many Miles it seemed like a Good Many to As we kept on a going until we landed at Dunbar s Lake if you know where that is. We went right through Grace Hill Aud if one of the party had t mentioned it we would never known that we went through that Inland town when we got to the Lake every one got out and got Busy fixing a their fishing tackle and it Wasny to Long until most All the crowd was along the Bank fishing and before Long some fish was caught by some they were dressed in a doable Quick Barry and Pat in skillets Aud Fried Over some Dandy goals and the ladies also Fried some potatoes and made hot Coffee the baskets were emptied onto a Long table and say if that Plinio dinner did no to taste Good then we Don t know what we Are talking about miss Kathenne Hopengardner took several different pictures of the crowd they All stayed until the Cool of the evening when they started Bock for their respective Homes thinking it was a Day Well spent.
