* Nothing preventing, the following
will be tlhe programme of divine services

The pastor will preach on the subject,
"Why Men Go Wrong." Texts,
Matt. 18:23-25 James 1:13-15. In t'.:e
parable of the "Unmercti ul Servant,"
Matt 18, we have a concrete example
of a man who wenit "dead wrong."
In the text from James we have the
real cause or source 01 "wrong aomg.
"Why do men go wrong?" This is a
question tihat is constantly on our lips
today. Why did' the sertvtant waste his
Lord's money, and become so hopelessly
involved? -Why, when he was
so kindly forgiven, did ite show such a
miserable spirit of ingratitude? Why
do sood men. who know better so
often "go wrong." Why are the great
civilized nations of the world engaged
in a bloody warfare with such barbarism,
destruction, and courage as
the world has never seen? These
questions are pertinent and legitimate.
But it is doubtlful whether we always
stop to think just what they mean.
Some interesting and practical
thoughts on this subject will be presented
in ti':e sermon.

I desire to thank each 'warmer who
so generously contributed to the
county exhibit at the State -air, thus
enabling Xewberry to attain the high
rating which sfte did. we aia not win

few counties that graded above 70 per

by the judges. Our exhibit of vetch,
the finest at the fair, raised by Mr.
B. 0. Lovelace, Prosperity, was selected
by !Mr. E. J. Watson, for exhibit

thank tfre farmers for their co-operation
and assure tf':e?m that if their cooperation
continues and their interest
increases New-berry county will always
be in the front rank.
