I realize that it is impossible to give a Clear idea of such conditions As we have in our land you will have to visit Gary East Chicago or any foreign Community to understand yet the leaders of the Church by our help Are trying to solve the problems. But some one will say quot Why spend so much Money quot my first answer would be to save the United states. Continental Europe has been coming to America so rapidly in the last 25 years that we have not been Able to americanize the people. Many of the customs that were dear to our fathers have been thrown aside our Sabbath has been commercialized until the wholesome effect is gone. It is with nations As with individuals quot they reap what they we Are reaping in the morals of our people and the nation that forget god shall be turned into hell. Read the history of re me Spain or Germany. My second answer is really of More vital importance As it deals directly with humanity from that stand Point. To help Are crying to us for Aid and Succour and if we do this we shall not Only save ourselves nationally but will hear the master saying quot come be blessed of my father inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world for i was hungered and be gave me meat i was thirsty and be gave me drink i was a stranger and be took me in. Inasmuch Asye have done unto one of the least of these be have done it unto maj Olleck at editor s and treasurer s report show that there Are Pew delinquents excerpts of Sermon preached by Rev. John e. Mccloud june 26, at the methodist Church. The total taxes for Fountain county for the year As shown by the books of auditor h. W. Newlin and treasurer Albert Mcelwee is just $869,323.78, to which has been added assessments made by the auditor totalling $8,739.06 and on account of erroneous assessments and tax refunded the sum of $299.52 a deducted leaving the net duplicate statement showing $879,362.36, of which the sum of $470,090.98 remains on the duplicate for collection in november. The first semiannual assessment Aggregates $469,-550.87. It can be seen at a glance that the two instalments Are about the same and if the november assessments Are paid As fully As the june a sements there will be no delinquent tax at the next settlement something that has never happened in any county in the state so far As known. The state gets a total of $51,-536.46 and $49,137.48 is retained by the county for the Upkeep of Public buildings Bridges official salaries and other expenses. The sum of $55,623.78 goes to liquidate gravel Road Bonds and the township and incorporated towns receive the balance. Native of Warren county expires subject what the Centenary Money is doing in the United states. Text Matt. 25-40 quot inasmuch Asye have done it unto one of the least of these be have done it unto in the last part of the 25 chapter of Matt the Saviour gives a very graphic and startling account of the judgment Day and makes the test for the entering of the land of the blessed that of services. Many people Are willing Yea desire to enter heaven but do not think very much about being useful to their fellow Man. Many Content themselves. In criticising the Church for not doing More than in has done but a real look into the work of the Church will show much to be grateful for i do not expect to show All that has been done in the last two years but to look at some of the work done by the Centenary movement that we May see More clearly its need to the world and take cheer that we have a part in it. The United states is not the same As it was 100 or even 50 years ago. Then it was almost entirely Rural and each could live almost Independent of his if need required it he could support his family from the fishes fowls or other wild game. Now it is mostly Urban and with the Advent of factories cities have sprung up in a nighty that have brought to. Our shores millions of foreigners and has changed the South by calling Many of the coloured people to the North seeking better wages. A visit to the Coke Fields of Pennsylvania the Calumet regions of Indiana or to the Pacific coast of California would Conyl Nea one As to the new condition. This natural growth abnormally enhanced by the world s War gave us a condition that tested the strength of nation and Church. Under such conditions the Centenary was bom. The Centenary movement was in response to just such a need it is christianity in Earnest it is helping to bring the kingdom of god to this world. Bishop Hughes said quot we cannot adequately characterize the Centenary movement nothing else equal to it y was Ever planned by any denomination. First a dream then a program then a campaigns and now a it is evangelistic and seeks to improve the entire Man. Just a general word concerning Why and How we have used our Money As to the quot Why quot the ministers and Christian workers Are the poorest paid people in the United states the Survey shows that 2,643 pastors receive less than $500, per year and 7,298 receive Between $500, and $1,000. Last year the average Railroad Workman received about $1,900. The Street sweepers of the cities receive More pay than Many of the pastors. To meet this need the Centenary gave in main Tance last year $2,155,000. That is an average of $217, to each needy Church. Then there were Many problems in such places As the Calumet Region in the Coke Fields of Pennsylvania that must have our help or unchristian our land and in americanize our Republic. These Are some of the we have spoken above about the helping out the needy charge on maintenance and now we wish to speak about another phase of help. In Many places the buildings were inadequate often none whatever the people were poor or perhaps foreigners who did not care for the Church. This made a grave problem. Last year the Church Extension tith Money from the Centenary aided 934, projects by the gift of $2,556,438.91. That is an average of $2,73t. This Inch of a Grant gave an impetus that inspired the people so that they made suitable buildings and thereby added much property to the Church the 934 projects aided May he looked at from another Angle and thereby give us a clearer View.
