People Turn Out Well to Hear
Gospel at Camp
HELD AT TINDALL'S GROVE
Able Sermons Sunday' by Three Lead
ing Divines of the District.
Camp Grounds, Tindall's Grove, Aug.
20. Yesterday was ushered in by the
ringing of the bell at C o'clock. v:-?ch
broke the stillness of camp t tTl i
the occupants prayer service was at
hand. Very shortly the woods r?.n?
with the shouts of the little ones. Peo
ple began coming early, until a goodly
number congregated to hear the ser
mon preached by Rev. J. B. Harth cf
Reynolds, at 11 o'clock. He took his
text from Xehemiah, "The people had a
mind to work." He said, "I see before
me this morning a number of the little
brown buttons, won by the old soldiers
and these buttons denote patriotism.
The revolution, the war of 1S12 and the
Spanish war, have developed in our na
tion grand traits of patriotism. Jesus
came into the world to save people.
When Paul began preaching opposition
arose, not only with Paul, but later
with Luther, Wesley, and with Booth
in the lower slums of Imdon. Xot
only did these men meet opposition,
but down through history, John Brown,
Abraham Lincoln, and just at this time
Theodore Roosevelt, like Neht miah has
opposition within and without.
"Xehemiah was slandered and ridi
culed, and the people said he wante:!
a become king, although they were
reacherous and attempted to kill him.

The children's meeting under the
supervision of Miss Beatrice Ostrom,
unior league uistrict prcsiuenr, was
ne of the interesting services of the
lay. Rov. Mr. Craine gave a lesson
taking the worm eaten hickory nut for
he example and bringing it down to
childrens' daily lives.
Rev. M. V. Crumhakcr of Mol'ne,
preached at '.' o'clock from Lpheslans
ll:fi: "This life is a warfare, a warfare
with sin. satan and all his workers.
'In this warfare all are engaged. Sue-1
cess corccs from being good soldiers
for Jesus Christ. The character of a
good soldier of Jesus Christ, must be
the same makeup as that for his coun
try's flag. The first character so far is
obedience, duty and privilege to listen
and do the thing commanded. There
is such a thing that the Christian peo
ple may be so trained that one may
obey the command of God.
"Another element is the spirit of
self forgctfulncss.. Self stands in the
way, with a fear for dutifulness. The
third element, courage, one must have
th3 armor of truth, and the shield of
faith Xothing is greater than faith
Thn onlv azjiressivo weapon is the
sword of the spirit, the word of God.

has put the American woman's foot
Into the white light of temporary fame,
says the New York American, lie in
sists that it is about the only thing that
gets smaller by comparison with things
on the other side.
He prides himself on his American
ism, and while abroad he studied every
thing in sight with a view to compar
ing it with the same product in his own
Whether he began with the foot or
the hat of the French woman In draw
ing Ids comparisons is not known, but
that he observed both Is quite beyond
discussion, for this is what he has to
say ou the subject, or at least what
Dr. II. F. Biggar, who accompanied
him on his recent trip to France, to
Compiegne, Btates that Mr. Rockefeller
said regarding my.!ady's foot:
'"The upper classes Mr. Rockefeller
found charming," snjs Dr. Biggar.
"We were agreed that the French wo
men are not beautiful, but thfy have a
vivacity not found in women here.
They know the art of dress, t-he exact
r.ngle of a bat for. the most becoming
tilt, the proper blending of colors in
everything they wear.
But their feet! Oh, dear, their feet
distressed us. Their " shoos are too
large and they do not fit. If they dress
ed their feet as well as they do their
heads thov would be the most charm
ing women iu the world."
Now American women take that as a
fine piece of gallantry, of loyalty, on
Mr. Rockefeller's part. It indirectly
states that the American woman has
a small, well formed foot and a well
"lie must mean to compare our feet
with those of the French women," said
a woman in discussing the matter the
other day, "for what other women can
John D. Rockefeller draw comparisons
with? That means, we have pretty,
well formed feet, doesn't 4tY' she ar
gued. On the other hand, the acting French
consul general at Xew York, M. Lucien
Bonzom, laughed heartily at Mr. Rocke
feller's opinion of the French woman's
"Ma foi," said he, "what, to begin
wiz, does Mr. Rockefeller know of ze
American woman's foot? He has been
