thorized by the official board of the
Methodist church to take subscrip
tions. This mission is connected with the

Evangelist Cobb, who Is conducting
tho great revival now In progress In
tho new Assembly hall on Drinker

the subject "Ho Cnlloth Thee." He
said: "In this beautiful story of Blind
Bartlmneus are two great objective
points, first God's enregy, second man's
Jesus called but It was In answer to
the blind man's call. God has some
blessings which he bestows with Im
partial hand upon his children on earth,
legardless of their gratitude or Ingrat
itude. Tho rnln descends, the sun
shines on theevlle as well as the good.
But there are higher blessings which
can be secured by complying with the
law enunciated by Christ. "Ask und Ye
Shall Receive." Bartlmaeus asked
and received. Recall the circumstan
ces. A great throng, a king going ns
all believed to be crowned, a blind beg
gar daring to ask for help, tho obse
quious courtiers trying to silence the
clamor, the beggar crying nut louder:
"Jesus thou son of David have mecry
upon me." Oh that men nnd women
cared as much today for their soul's
salvation as this blind man cared for
his sight. How easily some people are
discouraged In their effots to follow
Christ. An unkind word, n fancied
slight nnd wo give up without another
trial. Not so with Bartlmaeus. He
calls and keeps on calling until Jesus
commands him to lie brought and
grants him his request. So should tho
sinner long for snlvatlon nnd lay hold
of Christ. Tonight's subject Is "Cod's
