No book except the Bible has ex
erted a greater influence in the world

therefore we invito all to study its
characters and teachings with us.

set of stereopticon views especially
prepared for the occasion. A song
service precedes each sermou.
There are five iu this series of ser
mons dealing with the characters and
teachings of this wouderful book, a
book that only recently furnished the
topic for an address by President
oosevelt that has occasioned a world
wide comment. AH are welcome.
Youiik )enple, old people aud all will
find the services of interest and profit.
