Be Repeated This Thursday.

11, ‘ ‘Thy Kingdom Come. ’ ’ The Christ
ian Endeavor society will hold its last
service of the present contest. The
special effort put forth by the young
people has been gratifying. The even
ing service will be made more attrac
tive by the large choir. The subject
of address is: “The Valley of Dry
Bones.” This is an evangelistic ser
vice and an after service of prayer and
testimony will be held for all who wish
to remain. The loosing side of the con
test in the Presbyterian Christian En
deavor society will entertain the winn
ing side on New Year’s Eve. The
Brotherhood and Mizpah class is also
invited to enjoy the evening. The ex
ercises will be held in the Endeavor
room of the church.
Evangelist Kellums will begin a ser
ies of meetings at the Christian church
tomorrow. These meetings will con
tinue until January 1.
Commencing. Sunday evening Janu
ary 2, and continuing until Sunday
evening the 9th, the Presbyterian, Bap
tist, Christian and Methodist churches
will hold a series of meetings together.
The gatherings assemble at the usual
hour, 7:30 p. m. Each service starts
off with song, prayer and testimony,
followed by a sermon. The Methodist
church will be the convening place Sun
day and Monday; the Christian church"
Tuesday and Wednesday; the Presby
terian church Thursday and Friday, and
the Christian church the final service
on Sunday evening. Every effort is to
be made to make these gatherings sea
sons of great blessing, and it is. hoped
that the results shall more than com
pensate preachers and people for the
extra efforts put forth. Next week the
complete program of speakers and top
ics will be given.
The Methodist Brotherhood held a
most interesting meeting Tuesday even
ing in the church. Three new members
were initiated into the craft. • At the
close of the program the brethern went
down to the gymnasium where an appe
tizing lunch had been prepared and was
served by Messrs. Hall, Sanford and
Monroe. Judging by the comments
these members will often be asked to
serve in a like capacity.
“King Saul” was presented at the
Armory on Wednesday night, and will
be given again tonight—Thursday. The
play is under the auspices of the Royal
Intermediate school, and is staged very
creditably. Rehearsals have been in
progress for several months. The sev
eral participants acquitted themselves
splendidly, and received applause af
ter applause from the large audience
present last night. “King Saul,”
Judge Willis Perkins’ sacred cantata,
deals directly, a s its title would indi
cate, with the life of the first king of
the Hebrew nation, a time through
which there was no grander, excepting
the reign of David and Solomon, which
immediately followed Saul’s reign. The
cantata opens at the rejoicing over the
conquest at the Amalekites, wherein
Saul so nearly obeyed God and yet the
prophet told him that complete obedi
ence was necessary then as now in or
der to please God. And inasmuch as
Saul tried to shift the responsibility on
to the people, God rejected him and in
his downward path he finally goes so
far as to consult a familiar spirit.
David receives praise because of his
valor, and this makes Saul more angry
and he tries to kill David. Saul’s army
is overthrown in battle and Saul and
his sons are killed. David is crowned
king, and the cantata closes with all
sounding the praise of the new king.

MALE SHOPPERS ARE DUE.
Men Usually Leave Purchases of Gifts
to Eleventh Hour.
With only a short time remaning be
fore Christmas, the rush becomes more
pronounced and business people are
meeting the demand. All of the elev
enth-hour buyers are being heard from.
The belated male shoppers must yet do
their buying. Some storekeepers aver
that the absence of men is to be ex
plained largely by the fact that the
average man has his wife or sister or
mother do his Christmas shopping, But
that does not relieve him from the ne
cessity- of buying something for his
shopping representative. The store
keepers quite generally are expecting
a rush of male shoppers Friday night.
