"Billy" Sunday won tho hearts of the
thousands of school children who lilted
the tabernacla this afternoon. He pleaded
with them to live right In a strong sor
mun. At one point "Hilly" shattered ten
statuettes with a sledge hammer, draw
ing a parallel between this act and the
In caking of the Ton Commandments.
He then went on to show his young
hearers how easily they might destroy
the beailtlfu Influences In their lives If
they did not heed ttio teachings of thoso
oId"r nnil wiser than themselves.
Tho children had come expecting to
hear something unusual, and they wcro
not disappointed. Befoie "Billy" hud
been talking live minutes he had earned
Iho eihoing cheers that greeted him as
ho stopped on the platform, Tho thou
sands of bright, eager, little faces wero
turned toward him in astonishment,
countless little mouths ucro open and
sparkling eyes watched his every mo
tion. He has not addressed a more ap
preciative audience In this city.
Many times during tho afternoon the
evangelist caused the children to laugh,
especially when he said:
"You can't teach an old dog new tricks.
Tho older people are the harder they are
to teach. You don't see any old men nnd
women playing leap frog they're too
old they'd break their necks."
And here "Billy" gave a demonstration
of "grandpa" trying to play leap frog.
"1 tell you." lie shouted, "youth Is tho
time to learn. That's what you go to
AN OBJECT LESSON.
Another variation of the afternoon from
Blll)'s" regular program occurred when
ho Invited 4- children to step on the plat
form and receive a flag. Then "Billy"
showed them that these Hags repiesented
earthly kingdoms which could not endure,
there being but ono eternal kingdom
that of God, whose flag Is the cross upon
which Christ was sacrificed.
It was a fine appeal to tho boys and
girls and they responded as only children
can respond, for whey "Billy" Invited
any of them who wished to, to come down
to the platform and shake his hand to
signify their Intention to fight under
Christ's banner, the aisles of the taber
nacle fairly swarmed with eager children.
Bearing the American flag and display
ing enthusiasm, many Boy Scouts in full
regalia Joined In cheering Sunday as he
game to the platform,.
Troop 19, under the command of Scout
master John QeU, and Troop 17, com
manded by It. Q. Lamb, gave the follow

Many schools joined In with their va
