Jertif-nh-m. I won't exelatm that Bow

it will be our Iord and Savior Jesus

every wn d of doctrine, and that we
have such a Kreat friend that will help
us iu every time of need.
Now let me s-iy. Brother Yost need
not think so much harm of our side
in tryine to hold the old Kvanpelieal
property. The church whs built, and
dedicated to that purpose. The peo
ple's money built the church. It is
true Brother Yot did the mot of the
work, but he had ltter lieen preach
ing and saving souls and let the people
milt the cbim-h. True, Kro. Yost
agreed to let Mr. McElroy preoch in
the chun-h, previ lin be would not
say anything against Ids side or up
h i!d hi.Hon n ltr'v, but an srwn as he
id one won I jtin.t iiis Kble or spoke
in fhvnrof the itowman b!de, he could
not have the church to pn-ach In any
lonjrer. and Ms elder, nor Brother
Fisher, nor any of our party could
not preach in the church, and said if it
wasn't for the friend that McKlroy
had in 8weet Home he could mt have
the privilege of preaching in the church.
Itowerxox could make his ct:it riwnt
amtitiKt the ev!iuircieal church f.ir one
h ur or inort and say hard tiling
ncainst u, but we must k-ep mir
mou t tut el a tl and tit t def.-nd the
truth. The time has now come when
jHHiple mustlieur bnb sidt. We are
not here lomy harl things about the
eiher party but it Is rijrht for tin to con
tend f t the faith th:it wss one deliv
ered to the saint., and to work earnest
ly fertile upbuilding of Uod's church.
d lfliiHl l e for us Iiuchii Im nimiiiMt
us? We will not fenr, for Ood end one
re the rnnjority. We must remt niler
that we ar- working for eternity and
much deend!oii the life we live.
The lust uijtht th:it Bro. Bowersox
preached at Kweet Htune tr. McKlroy
a-ked Bro. Yst if he and Buwerso'x
were eiiie to let our eld- rs in the
e iurh. Hes:tid if we would oen our
church In Albany for hi elder, he
would then apeti fur our elder. He
knew it was not in our power to do
that, eo Mr. McElroy secured the hall
for worship, for if the church wiia too
tine for ur elder it was too fine for
him. He offered to help Brother Yst,
In a protracted meeliuir and sav noth
ing of our trr uide, but work 'for the
sulvut ion of the people if lie would let
htm preach in the c hurch, hut Brother
Yst tdainly toiil Mm lie did not want
him for he was nothi::r( and Inm very
willing to e called nothing fur the
fwtke f Christ.
If they are th church whv did they
not send their bishop to Europe. It.
Dubs declared that split would take
ple.ee in the church, but he added, 'we
shall not go out empty handed," and
why any ("bri-tiwii man or Wfm:in
tn uphold such a man is more than I
can tell. It is silly for anv one to
think that a aupcnrfed bishop, which
they cbifm B:sh-p Bowman is, would
come to the const to hold eonfereno-.
The bishop Is too smart a man for that,
and then why did the elders of the
Orogn conference give out appoint
ment for the bishop to pi each at cer
tain places, for Midi thimts won't work
Iar loyal ones, let us be true to
Gd and true f our In-loved Zion and
everything will lie all richt. God wnnto
a pure church and I have thought late
ly that he has taken this plan to
clennse it. May God bless all the true
ones, and whea we are done with the
turmoils of lire and have fought the
good fiht we may meet asrain.

The One-Price Cash Htore has lie
come one of the features of Lebanon.
As everything is new and fresh, and the
firloes are so much below that charged
n credit-giving establishments, peo
ple who desire to buy their goods
for cash naturally go to the corner,
where they do not hnve to make up to
the storekeeper for the non-paying cus
tomers who. when they can do so, buy
en credit, and who are'constil utionally
opposed to pavine for anything. Get
