The great chorus choir has become
so popular that the platform had to be

OE TABERNACLE MEETINGS
Mr. Haudenschield has driven away
the fear entertained by some, that the
emotions only would be appealed to.
Nowhere is the depth of the foundation
he builds on better seen than in the
afternoon Bible lectures. And while
deep, they are clear, practical and con
vincing. The increasing attendance at
these lectures is an evidence that peo
ple are finding in them just what their
better natures crave.
A Few Sayings of the Evangelist
You cannot trust a profane swearer
any pluce. Some people have lived so
long in the chicken yard they have
learned to talk foul language.
I'd put my head under the fence
and ask the world to sit on it if my
name should appear in the paper as a
winner of a prise at a card party.
A looking glass was never intended
to wash the face nor the law to save
men. But both help you to see your
self. The curse of this world is the moth
ers who do not care where their daugh
ters are and what they are doing.
Girls want to be a belle. It just
tukes a little brass and a tone to make
a bell they usually have both.
I'd rather beg for a crumb of bread
here than a drop of water in hell. Hell
is one place that has gone dry.
