"MEN AND MILLIONS"
Is a significant term, and was in
augurated in the Christian church
about five years ago for the raising
of $6,300,000.00 for Benevolence,
Missions and Education R, A.
Long of Kansas City has been a
most erthusiastic supporter of the
movement and has pledged One
Million One Hundred Thousand of
this amount, and there has been
raised in cash and pledges in sums
of Five Hundred Dollars and above
Four Million Dollars so that there
now remains One Million Two Hun
dred Thousand to be raised to reach
the required goal of $6,300.00000.
Tnis may look like a Big Sum of
M ney. and its final accomplishment
means the fulfillment of a mighty
task. The world is now thinking
only in big terms, and our Country
is thinking in terms of big ideas,
we are set to make the world safe
for Democracy. It is costing a
thousand million dollars every
thirty days to wage war against
Autocracy,-but we must win.
The plan of raising a sum of
money so large within the body of
a Church Organization seemed at
the time of its suggestion to have
been the wanderings of a mind
jiivtii to dreaming, an optimist with
an idea too big to come true. We
are now however on the home run
and the whole brothtrhood is to
have a part in the homecoming.
Some proportionate part of this
million two hundred thousand dol
lars will be asked of every church,
and of every member Paris is re
quested to raise $750.00, Madison
$780, and Monroe City $600. This
Can or Cannot be done. The Mon
roe City church has never been
placed on the roll of the Cannots.
It is no Slacker?
Next week will be given over to
devotion and prayer. Shively of
Paris, Winders of Hannibal, Bloom
of Palmyra' will be -among the
leaders and speakers. Full parti
culars will be announced from
time to time. J H. Coil, Pastor of
the Shelbina church will exchange
with Bro. Wharton next Sunday.
Particularly must every member of
the church be on time and in place.
Let it be a big day. "A day for the
planning of great things that we
may in turn expect great things."
