Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 13, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, August IS, THE DAILY HERALD- Single Fare on AURailroads Good Races and Platform Attractions SOUTHERN ALBERTA'S BIG EXHIBITION LETHBRIDGE August 19 to 24, 1912 In Premiums and Purses For Information Write j. W. McNICOL Manager, LETHBRIDGE Entries Close August 14 BIG DAY FOR THE OLD FOLKS MAGRATH ENTERTAINED THEM IN SPLENDID T-R1CT COURT CASE Aug. Thursday the old people of-Magrath, the widows missionaries 'wives and some other Invited in all about one hun- dred, were given one of 'the most pleasant outings ever afforded them "by1 the old folks' committee the iMormon. church. At 10 o'clock they all assembled at the town hall, where autos and otheT vehicles were awaiting to convey them to the splendid grove of 'Mr. p. Carter, located one mile west of the town. The drive .to 'Mr. Carter's was thoroughly enjoyed, as the road was good and the beautiful fields of grain through which they passed made a pleasing picture. The weather, too, was ideal, adding to the enjoy- anent of the excursion. On arriving at the grove, which Jiad been put in excellent shape for the entertainment of the guests, the fes- tivities began. A fine program was rendered, consisting o-Z speeches and- musical selections, and some real old- fashioned dances were indulged in on the green, much to the amusement of Ihe old veterans. The oldest gentleman and the old- lady present were each given a suitable present, the honors going to Wm. Wood, father of the Wood Bro- thers of CardBlon, "Magrath and Taber is 76 years of nge, and Mrs. Mar- garet Watson, of Provo. Utah, who is 81 years of age. They gave appro- priate replies, Mr. .Wood speaking TVfth the vigor of a man of much less years. He and looks as though he would live for a good many years to come. A recita- tion was contributed by Mr, McBridfi of Welling, and it pleased the party immensely. Mrs.' Wilcox, aged 72, give a splendid reading, displaying unusual elocutionary powers. After the -program had been con- cluded all sat down to the festive board, and -did full justice to the ex- cellent banquet that had been prepai ed for them by tho -committee." Thi was served on the lawn, and was one of the finest features of the outing. On returning to the town about five o'clock in the afternoon the party were taken, to ihe Electric theatre tho management, Messrs. Cole man and Godfrey; treated them free of charge to an exceptionally attract ive picture show. This "was very kirn of the theatre people, and their ad was greath' appreciated, after the show the'guests were taken directly to their homes, worn out hut strangely, happy. The old folks were not forgotten and their expressions of appreciation and thank- fulness was touching to hear. Those who have this commendable movement in charge and 'who success- fully brought this latesr. event to a termination are: A. Mercer, chair- man; A. B. Orichh'eld, W, T. Pussey, H. Rasmiisson and Mesdames Taylor, Harrison, HllHer, Woolley and Kim- ball. To -these are due iiiudi credit and respect, as they are engaged in noble and praiseworthy work. A large nuniber of local people at- tended the conference of the. Taylor stake" held in. Raymond last Satur- day and Sunday, and they all report a moat successful conference.

Bridge's chorus of 30 young voices produced a selection that made a distinct impression. The work of the children was excellent, and was the object of much flattering comment from those who were in at- tendance. At the same occasion Mr. Lynn Gibh, the well known "biiritonej rendered a most creditable piece... John Barton, who is proprietor of a lumber yard at Burdett, wag a 'Visit- or to CVfagrath last Saturday. Mr. Burr ton reports crop conditions In the Buiv detc district as being excellent, and is most in sneaking of'the future of that fertile section of Southern Alberta. He says thai building operations are unusualIv brisk. At the silting of the district court next month, the case of the town of Magrath vs W. A. 'Miller, re the runn- ing "of a pool hall without a license will be heard. Both s ing hard on the case, and an inter- esting fight is anticipated by those interested. -Mr. Miller is at present in Walla Walla, Wash., attending the funeral of his father, and on his re- turn It is expected that things Tyill begin to move. Palmer Lewis will conduct the prosecution, and it. is said that William Laurler has been retain- ed as counsel for the defence.

I happen to be one of the great family of of whom Jiev. T. P. Perry preached, and, it. was certainly re- freshing to hear a real practical talk on a'subject-that even the non-church- going Smith could take in and l ber. And just here is one of the "rea- sons" ivhy Smith does not go to church. Too often he goes and hears a-subject-discussed of which he has little or no previous knowledge, his education, thought and reading not liavlng'been along the Hues discussed by. most preachers most of'the time, i am hot saying 'that Smith should not study and think along these lines, fact remains'the same, that he does not, and the church must 'take Smith as he not as he ought to be. Smith is concerned with the affairs of the shop, store, office and street, the. affairs discussed in the newspa- pers, and magazines, and the affairs ot: the home and family. The prob- lems of .even' day life are his, and in these, matters h-e' is willing, even anxious to get light and leading. He knows in a way about church doc- trines, tut he does not think it mat- ters much what a man believes pro- vided he lives right. Smith wants practical preaching, and will go -to hear.it if It is brought io his atten- tion.' That makes another point. Smith will go to hear a man preach if he feels sure? that1 he will gel something he can understand and ap- preciate. The only way he can find out what preachers will likely give him what he wants is through the newspapers. iThe press of this, city and others seldom ujakes mention of a sarmon it thing more or less sensational, preached by some'outside preacher. Preachers, as a rule, are somewhat, backward in try- ing "to" get. their sermons into print. But why should they be? By getting, into print, -they get a synopsis of their sermon before" instead of the hundreds who hear, them in-church and Smith's attention is called through the press the, fact 'that j there are such things as churches and j preachers. Smith does not go to j church because the press does not call his attention to the preacher and the church! But 'there is another reason why Smith does not go to church, and because Smith is lazy. I do not agree with -Mr. 'Perry in. saying the mail. The average Smith too lazy.to get up and dress to attend to anything 'that docs not, as ho .thinks vitally Interest him. AB one of the Smiths; I vouch for the truthfulness of this assertion. These'are reasons why Smith1 does not so to church the first time, but the great reason why he does not go the second, if he goes the first, U> that spoken of by the preacher Sunday and that is because the church is too frigid. Smith does not feol dead and ready foV cold tstorage. But he sees little or no evidence of life in the church..- He sees 'those who are ac- customed to go to church greet each other warmly, as the cogs of a ma- chine are wont to fit into one another, but he is outside, apparently without a place In the church machine. If he butts in and -tells some person that he' belongs to the church which he is attending on this parituiilav occasion, that person out, nnd lead to the preacher for an introduc- tion, but the chances are against his being recognised, by anyone hut the preacher, when he comes again next Sunday. He is not made to feel at home, not a member of the family, nor even a guest. Smith has friends with; whom he can spend a pleasant and profitable Sunday evening, and he de- cides 'that he prefers them to the frfgerattng ctiiirch. Can anyone blame iiini. The ordinary Smith is not 'buil( along heroic lines. Nor does it do. much good for Smith to be greeted in a formal or perfunc- .ory manner. He: wants to feel that those greeting him are Interested in him, and are really glad to see him with .them; It is -the heart back of the iand that counts with Smith; the cheery voice of welcome that shows a genuine -interest. Smith will not stand for ahams, ajid he can see through' them. Smith knows in church as real interest overcomes formality and show, and le does not go to church because there is no real heart Interest dis- played. Now, Mr; Editor, I am afraid you will think I'am'preaching a sermon, hilt I am going to offer one more sue- ;estlou before closing. Would you consider'opening, your columns to a discussion on the subject Smith's going to church? 1 know there are many good, honest, earnest church 'oik on. whose hearts this 'problem of the non-church-going Smith ia a heavy burden.. They would do all they could ;o solve it if they knew how. It'Is up ,o Smith to say why he does not go to church. Mtv Perry gave several reasons., I have. given some more, but others probably have other rea- sons or excuses. As a Smith, I know could go 4o church every Sunday, b'utj don't, for .the reasons given.

Why? J3ecause there-was business in something to overcome m'y objections as they can for those of other Smiths who give them a chance as I have done.- it is up to the church, but it is ,lsb up to Smith.'
