THE SABBATH DAY.
Synopsis of Sermon Deliver
ed Recently by Rev. E. P.
Text: "Remember the Sabbath day
to seen It Holy."
The difference between the 4th com
mandment and the rest is, it has the
word "remember". No other has it.
The fourth commandment was old; the
rest were all new. Was given to
Adam and Eve in the Garden of
Eden, and has bean knuwn ever since.
Is the oldest law in the world.
Now let us look at this fourth com
mandment. In order that we may un
derstand it, there are three questions
for us to ask and answer :
1st What is meant by the Sabbath
and How must we keep it holy?
' 3rd Why should we do this?
First What is meant by the Sabbath
day? The word Sabbath means rest.
The Bible tells us that God was occu
pied for six dsys in making the world.
At the close of the 6th dav He had
finished all that He wanted to make.
The sun and the moon and the stars,
and this world, and everything in it
wes completed, aud God looked at all
Ha had made, and behold it was very
good. Then on the Seventh day, He
rested. This does not mean that God
was tired in the sense that we tire I
when we work all week, for He never)
tivAu If f?a had nnntinnnrl aiv thml. !
sand years in making worlds He would
not have been tired. When it says
"God rested" it only means that He
stopped from making worlds. He had
made as many as he wanted and then
stopped. He rested on tho seventh
day and hallowed it or made it holy.
This was done to teach Adam and Eve
and their posterity that God wanted
them always to stop their work on
this day and keen it boly in the same
way. The sabbath day was first kept
in Paradise. How beautiful must
have been the Sabbath dawn to Adam
and Eve in the garden. They had no
church, bat every grove and the shade
of every tree waa achuroh. The con
gregation was made op of two people.
They had no printed Bible, like ours
and no mis later to preach them a ser
mon. Their Bible waa all around
them. Every blade of grass, every
trembling leaf, every opening flower
preached a sermon to them, spoke to
them of the wisdom and goodness of
God. They had no orgxn, no choir to
help them sing His praises. The
gentle wind, making sweet music as
it swept through the trees of the gar
den, was their organ. The warbling
birds, and rippling brooks were their
choristers. Thus was the Sibbath
kept in Paradise. It was kept after
Adatri and Eve were driven out of Par
adise. Enoch kept it when he walk
ed with God. Noah keot it in the
Ark. Abraham and Jacob kept it.
The Iaelites kept it in the Wijder
ness before they 'came to Mount Sinai ,
and it was remembered and kept by
thosq who loved God in after aces.
The seventh day was keDt as tho Sab
bath till after our Savior rose from
the dead. Then Ilia Apostles and
followers were directed to keep the
first day of the week, which has been
observed for nearly two thousand
years and i so done in memory of the
resurrection of Jesus, our Lord. The
seventh dav was observed in memory
of work of creation which was then
i finished, but the first day is kept in
I memory of the wotk of Redemption.
! which was finished when Jesus rose
from the dead. By the Sabbath day
is meant a dav of rest and is binding
on all the race.
Second : How must we keep this
day holy? Two things are necessary
if we would keeD the Sabbath proper
ly. One is to stop working: the
other is to spend it in worshiping
God end in thinking and learning of
Him. Stop working God's command
is verv positive. . It says "Six days
shalt thon labor and 1o all that thou
hast to do, but the seventh day is the
Sabbath of the Lord thy ' God, in it
thou shalt do no manner of work."
This is strong, plain language, and
no one nped mistake its meaning.
This commandment is very compre
hensivetakes in man and beast.
"Thou nor thy son nor thy daughter,
nor thy man-servant, nor tby maid
servant, nor thy cattla. God told
the Jews in another place that He
snoke these words on puroose that
their servants and cattle should rest
as well as themslves
If this commandment were properly
obeyed what a quiet time there would
be all over this old world of ours one
day in seven. All stores closed fac
tories stopped no cars running, no en
gines puffing, no sound of saw and
hammer heard, but every person and
thing would be at rest. But the
Lord said: "The Sabbth was made for
man." Precisely so. But not for
man to abuse. A false argument is
often set uo on this expression, as if
man could do as he pleased with the
Sabbath. The earth was made for
man, but not for him to' neglect or
desecrate. The ve'y extrusion itself
is proof of the saoredness of the day.
It is not said Monady was made for
man. A special meaning attaches to
this gift of time : It is holy; it is a
testing place on the journey of life;
it is God's gt to man.
God does not require unreasonable
things of us. The Lord and his
did Dies plucked the ears of corn on
the Sbbath day; David and his fol
lowers went into the temple and ate
the show biead on the Sabbath day
which was only lawful for the priests
to do. But these were to satisfy the
honger of man. Animals must be
fed and watered: the sick must be
looked after on Sunday: the kitchen
mast be opened as well as the parlor
on the Sabbath .day. But we must
not forget that God has set apart this
day for His use. The day should be
spent in rest, worship and meditation.
It is God's day and is set apart for
Third: Why Fhould we do this?
Because of God's example and com
mand. God has given us all our time
and has a perfect right to demand
one seventh to be given to Him. It
is our part to obey God's command
ani trust to hs grace.
The financial lift that the Library
Association gets as a result of the tea
on Friday evening at I. O. O. F. hall
is the sum "of $0-1.00. This is very
gratifying to the ladies and will help
them very much in the work. Be
sides being a financial snccess, the
evening's entertain-nent of vocal and
instiumental music was greatly enjoy
ed. The musical talent of the town
gladly responded to the invitation to
participate and thete were many ex
cellent numbers rendered. While
there was an abundant sopply of good
"eats" there was none too much for
the very large number in attendance.
As to the library, tbia will be a suo
cess. The women of the city are back
of it and it will have to go.

MAY 6, CIRCUS DAY.
Tucked away somewhere deeply in
the inner most ennscioosnefs of every
human being is the r nwibrance of
the first circus ever attended. Time
has wronght manv changes but the
circus has not gone backwards. In
the onward progress the Al O. Barnes
Big Three Ring Wild Animal Circus
has forged to the front until now it
is the largest exhibition cf its kind in
the world. " This big show will give
two full and complete performances
in Hepnner on Monday, May 6.
There is not a village of any size
in the United States or Canada where
the name of the AI G. Barnes Circus
is not a household word. With the
show is carried the greatest and most
varied collection of animals ever
assembled together at one time.
There are more trained animals with
the show than may be found in tho
combined menageries of the four larg
The Al G. Barnes Circus is the one
show that's different. It is in a class
by itself. The feats performed bv
the man eating forest bred animals
have never before been dunlicated in
any exhibition. No hetter tribute
could be paid to Mr. Barnes than
that by one of America's foremast
college presidents, who after witness
ing a performance referred to it- in a
personal letter to the owm-r as a col
lege for the higher education of dumb
With the show is carried 350 educa
ted and trained animals. Among
them are twenty African forest bred
lions, a herd of eleuhants, a caiavan
of camels, inoluding a baby "shin of
the desert" , leopards, roval Bengal
tigers, pumas, bears, jaguars, zebras,
hyenas monkeys of every known spe
cies, dogs and ponies. Every animal
carried with the show is a performer.
Among the many favorites to be
seen will be Herr Louis Roth and his
twenty performing lions, Maj. Robert
Thornton and his troupe of perform
ing bears, Prof. Emery and his herd
of Siamese elephants, Mme. Florine
and her educated Persian leopards,
Oapt. Stonewall and his sea lions,
Miss Ethel Bonde and her trained
Arabian Stallions, lions monkeys
dogB and ponies and Mme. La Monte
and her royal Bengal tigers.
All the wild animal acts are per
formed in steel arenas weighing many
tons, under the supervision of a corps
of the world's greatest and most cele
brated trainers. Altogether there are
more than half a hundred heart-stilling
acts, each of which has never been
duplicated with any animal exhibition
in the entire world.
Som idea of the magnitude of the
show may be obtained when one takes
into consideration that it requires
twenty-eight specially constructed
railroad cars to transport this zoolog
ical paradise. Three hundred em
ployes are required to operate it.
Everyone of whom has an especial
task to perform for it must be remem
bered there are no drones with a cir
cus. The amount oi teea ior me
animals for one month is equivalent
to a small fortune.
Al G. Barnes is familiarly known
everywhere as "the animal master or
America's greatest showman. He
prides himself with the clean and high
tone standard he has always held for
the show. No gambling is allowed
upon the show grounds or city streets
on the day of exhibition.
A gorgeous glittering, mastcdontic
Btreet parade one mile in length
headed by two trumpeting military
bands will leave the show grounds at
10:30 o'clock on the day of exhibition.
Two performances will be given in
the water proof tents at 2 and 8
