Clears tliu5.ll-.UU0 Methodist
Church From Debt
Ono ot the most Interesting oventH
In church circles In the history of Iola
was the dedicating Sunday of tho
handsoruo houso of worship lecently
finished bj tho Methodists of Iola,
Tho oxcollont condition of that organ
ization, duo In a largo nieasuio to tho
olllclent leadership of Rov. John Mao
loan, Is most gratifying to all their
friends. Tho dedicating services wero
most Improsslvoly conducted by Bish
op Isaao V. Joyce, D. D., L. L. D.,
Dlshop Jojco Is one of tho strongest
men in tho Methodist Church, and ho
came all tho way from I'onnsylvanla
just to dedicate this church. Ho did
a big day's work Sunday. After
tho sermon ho started In to raiso tho
44,500 jet duo on tho building. By
ono o'clock ho had raised about half
so tho sorvleos wero closed and tho
dedication ceremony postponed until
night. Tho rain coming up just at
church tlmo kept many away and there
was only about half as largo an at
tondauco us in tho moinlng but tho
Bishop went to work with a will and
in about an hour had raised all but
$5S0. Tho trustees had that In sight
and with tho joyful exclamation "wo
aro out of tho woods" ho announced
that they could proceed with tho dedi
cation. Tho regular ritual form of
tho Methodist church was used.
The services began with a Lovo
Feast at 9::i0 and by ten o'clock tho
church was tilled. Extra chairs wcio
put in tho aisles and when the pastor
announced tho opening hymn for the
church services every foot of space In
the building was In uso.
In tho pulpit with Bishop Joyce aud
and ltov. Maclean wore Presiding
Elder Durbornw, Hovs. N. V. Mooro
and P. W. Penn of Humboldt, D. II.
Manley of LaHarpo, Angus Maclean
of Strong City, Guy Hamilton of

After tho usual opening exercises of
tho church Bishop Joyce preached
taking as his text I Timothy .1-10, "Tho
Church of tho living God, the pillar
and tho ground of tho trutn." His
theme was "Why do wo want
Churches? Why build Christian
Churches?" Ho spoke in part as fol
lows: "It is a satisfaction to follow along
tho track of a man who knows what
lie is talking about. The man who
wroto this text was a marvelous man.
Prom a lifo of hato and superstition
and persecution ho hadcomo over into
a lifo of peace and contentment and
joy. Ho is writing to a jouug man in

There Is a slnglo fact that ought
to confront every American. It is

any more un her hands than sho has.

Thero aro fifteen bundled millions
of pooplo In tho world today. If one
wants to get out of his narrowness and
know something of other men's lives
ho should try to know rnon whoro
thoy llvo. I have travoled over tho
world and seen nearly all of them in
their homos. Out of this fifteen hun
dred millions tho majority of them
went hungry to bed lust night, tho
majority of them will go hungry to
bed tonight. Who will tako caro of
them? What is to bo done with them?
There must be conscience culturo In
tho world. We aro doing good work
and aro a national power In the world
but what are our seventy-six millions
bsslrlo all tho rest? England has ono
hundred and fifty millions under her
rule but her conditions aro not what
her boBt thought would deslro It to bo.
Wo maintain that thero shall bo no
union between church and stato but wo
carry It iso far that in somo states
wo do rrot oven allow tho Lords

per cent of our homes do nothavo God

Who w 111 do it? Ther c w as never such
a problem. Unless something Is done
thero will be a moral smash up that
will astonish tho angels In heaven.
Every bodj has somo religious c in
vlctlon. Every nation has a God.
This Idea of spiritual conviction has
comedown through the centurlos. It
Is born In us and can't be driven out
of ournatuto. Wo know that thero Is
something outsldo of a man, some
thing looking up undbe.vond. It is
Every man has an intellectual rango
which must bo satisfied And too
rntinj of them aro satisfying It In a
sorry way. Somo ot our newspapers
aro sending out a mess of putrid stuff
as bad as tho sowers of Paris empty
into tho Seine. Men must think and
they should havo something good to
think about. Tho Glory and Majestj
of the Christian Church Is thnt It fills
tlieso requirements und Is also tho
master of tho man. Men like to get
together. Todaj out of tho seventy
six millions of peoplo in this country
forty millions aro seeking associations
outside of those I havo been talking
about. Tim church Is not to pleaso
with a bit of pretty sontlmont but to
makoMuun know something and mean
something. Whero would jou rather
havo jour bojs today, hero or out In
tho street? Whero will jou soek as
sociations for jour boys, from below
Wo all havo a jearnlng for fellow
ship. Everjonohiis somo friend whom
ho can trust and eonlldo in but there
comes a time whou friends will not
satisfy. God can bo talked to and Is
the best friend wo can havo. It Is tho
little fellow who throws aside tho Idea
that thero Is no God. Some of them
say that tho religion of Christ is for
babies and old ladles and men In their
dotage but If It's good enough for God
und tho archangels In Heaven lt'3
good enough for me. Everjbody
knows thoy ought to be better. What
will make us better. Colleges are
for brain training aud the Stato
for government. Who will tako
charge and make man better than ho
knows himself to bo ? Whero can it
bo done outsldo ot tho Church ? It
takes man and brings him to know
that he noeds something better and It
brings that something to him. Culture
is all right but jou can novor culture
tho devil out and culturo Christ in.
Every man has a revelation as to two
things, first, that hols u sinner,
Second, that ho can be saved. I heard
a preacher say orflie, "If you don't re
pent, when jou dlo you'll go to tho
place my modosty forbids mo to men
tion." That man had culturo but ho
lucked something olso. I knew an
other man whoso grammar was not of
tho best and whoso languugo was a
little uncouth but a friend said to me,
"I hung on tho edges of Infidelity for
j oars hut that preacher told mo onco
that he prajed for mo everj night be
foio ho went to bed. A groat sorrow
camo into my homo and he was thero
with tender words of comfort und hope.
I arrr saved through his work." That's
tho kind of work wo need and that is
tho kind of work the church Is doing.
Tboro Is something thut masters
overyono and tho quality of a man's
world is the quality of tho idea that
masters him and tho strength of his
world Is tho strength of tho idea that
masters hlrn. Churches aro not to bo
llovo for men but to present tho truth
so thut men can bellovc.
What is the gospel but a mossago to
make men better, and tho church Is a
means to bring that gospel to men."
