GALE-HATCH ENDS A SPLENDID YEAR Evangelists' Last Sun- day Here Was Fully Occupied The Gale and Hatch mission is closed. The evangelists put in a very busy day on Sunday and left yesterday morning for the east. The day was most inclement there being a heavy rain all day until after six o'clock. As a consequence the au- diences were small although in the evening Knox Church was filled. After the Sunday School rally there was a mass meeting in Knox Church at which Mr. Gale gave .an address on "Amusements." He devoted his at- tention chiefly to the theatres, danc- ing and card playing. He said that the curse of the church and of the work! is compromise what is needed is the man or woman who will stand true TO' principle either for God or for the Devil. The world de- tests a trimmer, Mr. Gale stated "that he believed the desire for recreation and amusement to be of .God .and thai God gave proper things to en- joy by the hundreds but people want- ed these things that were question- able. In speaking of the amusemets in Question Mr. Gale said that he Lethbridge Second Methodist Church Meets All Financial Obliga- tions The quarterly official board of Leth- bridge Second Methodist Churcl held its final meeting of the year at the parsonage in the North Ward on Saturday afternoon. Representatives from all the appointments were pres- ent. The reports from the various departments at all the appointments showed that both fche progress of the work and the results were very satisfactory. At the beginning of the year the board faced the financial obligations with some but the pastor, Rev. A. A.

He spoke more particularly to the church mem- bers urging them to refrain 'from these amusements as being destruc- tive of, their spiritual life and in- jurious to the morals of others. In the evening a full congregation in Knox Church Mr. Gale preached on the unpardonable sin. This sin said was the continual rejection. he of Christ and the call- of the Holy Spirit. The sin is unpardonable be- cause the time comes-, when the sin- ner loses the desire to repent and without repentance there can be no forgiveness. ThJjs .sin is a pro- cess and many have committed it without knowing they have done so. It is a condition of heart rather, than one definite act. -It shows itself in bitterness- and indifference aiid here 'Mr. Gale spoke strongly of the great indifference to spiritual things man- in Lethbridge. If a person has any desire to be a Christian that is a sure sign that. they have not com- mitted the unpardonable sin. After the regular sermon Mr. Gale gave a to the con- verts and older Christians. He told them to come out fully and whole heartedly for God, to read their Bibles daily, to pray, to confess Christ openly to join a church, to observe the church ordinances, to 1st Jesus "be their guide in the matter of amuse- ments and not to see how near they can live -to the world and still be a given for the plaintiff.

In the afternoon, at 3 o'clock, the evangelists conducted a service of the united Sunday Schools of the city, only a small' number being present owing to the.rain. Deep interest was manifested by those present and quite a number made the decision for the Christian life. MINISTER TAKES-H1S LIFE Harriston, May T. J.
