cote promises to return tho visit the
second Sunday In December. Presid
ing Elder Peck and the various A. M.
E. pastors are making strenuous ef
forts to build up the Sunday school
of the city. Let's all help them. At
tho night service which was largely
attended Prof.' Jackson gave a half
hour's Instruction In congregational
singing which was both Inspiring and
enjoyable. The usher's board Is do
ing splendid work for the different
departments of tho church. The var
ious auxiliaries of tho church aro
planning for the holidays. .Everybody
welcome at grand old Allen, the
SECOND BAPTIST CHURCH.
The annual Thanksgiving services
are held as usual. The sermon de
livered by the pastor. Dr. Bacote, was
a grand treat for those who wero for
tunate enough to attend. There were
three -additions to the church. Tho
annual Thanksgiving: dinner given by
the ladles of tho church under the
supervision of our excellent cateress,
Mrs. Nannie Fields, was a grand suc
cess. From the past years that Mrs.
Fields has superintended these an-'
nuaraffalrs wo know her name stands
as a guarantee for the luxurious
feast which is in store for us all. The
amount cleared from the dinner above
all expenses was' $111. The 3ervlces
Sunday were, as usual, up to the high
standard. The pastor's sermon on
the "Prodigal Son"'was full of advice
and practical lessons for all. There
were three additions to the church.

FRIENDSHIP BAPTIST CHURCH.
Tho Evangelistic series of meet
lngs now going on at the Friendship
Baptist church, 17 and Tracy, is liv
creasing In sirltual warmth, fervor
and religious enthusiasm. Dr. C.
Ellas Winston the vocal evangelist
who Is conducting the meetings is" not
an ordinary evangelist. His. manner
of campaign Is strictly modern and
up to the minute., But he has skill
fully blended tha modern attractive
method of reaohlng men with the
ancient apostolic spiritual method of
convicting their minds of the destruc
tiveness of sin In any form and the
personal practical advantage of
rlghtousness. He does not seek to
play on men's feelings In order to ex
cite their sentiment or emotion but
ho talks to "the heads of men In a
plain, practical, but pointed, pungent
and powerful manner and this car
ries with .It certain and sure convic
tion and gets Immediate results. He
knows the good old book the Bible
and uses that and that alone. He
Is Just the kind of evangelist that ap
peals to men In a very special way
and the men of this town shiuld hear
him, as he is especially successful In
winning men for tho kingdom of
Christ. Dr. Winston will speak twice
on Sunday. His subject at 11:00 a.
m. will be "Satan Dethroned." At
8:00 p. m. his subject will Tie: "Faith
tho Chain that Links Men to God,"
There will 'be a big baptizing at 2:00.
p. m. At this baptismal ceremony It
Is expected that twenty or twenty-five
persons will put on Christ by bap
tism. Plan to attend all these sevr
Ices, and help us to evangelize this
end of our city. Remember that Dr.
Winston holds a Bible Institute every
afternoon except Monday at tho
church from 3 to 4 o'clotk. Hear
him unfold the wonderful plan of
salvation and explain the marvelous
scheme of redemption In his unique,
thrilling, gripping manner and you
will set a new viewpoint of life and
see your Bible In a different Ugh:
and know better how to use It to win
men out of the kingdom of darkness
Into tho kingdom of light, liberty and
G. W, BOYD, Pastor,
PASSING OF THE OLD TIME
By C. A. STAHKS.
One of tho most pathetic scenes
Imaginable In church' affairs took
place recently In a prominent church
of this city. To be unthoughtful the
situation was only slightly noticed,
but to those who aro accustomed to
receiving sermons from Incidents rec
ognize tho gospel of efficiency or
non-efficiency wherever exemplified.
It was on Sunday night, perhaps a
tired audience awaited an equally
tired but good pastor, who graciously
gave tho privilege of preaching to tho
one "old gentleman" who proved
sweetly- unable to carry out the orig
inal plan. Hero Is where .the pathetic
part comes In. The one of the old
school took his text from the new
testament and In three minutes ho
was rambling back by the burning
bush with Moses as a central figure
and tho audience catching nothing
from the harangue but such morsels
as "pard'nlng of your sins," "my fair
beloved," "burning bush" and such
happy conclusion s the Israelites be
ing led by "a cloud of pillar by day."
The long hoped for climax brought
the same feeling as one who has
listened to the continuous roar of ma
chinery the sudden stop of which
loaves a strange quietness but gives
a decided relief. The inability of the
old time preacher to say something
substantial and intelligent Is what
gives the effort he makes Its pecu
liar pathos. Tho audience In this
case Is educated up to a higher stand
ard of conception and reception than
the "Reverend Gentleman" Is able to
supply, hence a. different duty de
volves on tho auditors to sit patiently
and bear out the time. The truth is
that the average preacher of this class
has failed to keep abreast with the
times and therefore Is a discord in
modern religious thought. He clings
essentially to the superstition and
quackeries of the past. Is this owing
to conditions Imposed on him. No,
but chiefly to neglected opportunities
to equip himself with fair knowledge.
Yes, the old time preacher has lost
his grip and In whatever veneration
we may hold him, he Is slipping back
because he has stood still and the
worlJ moved on.
