8I3LE MOST ENDURING
BOOK, SAYS EVANGELIST
S. T. Martin in Revival Sermon
Tells How to Read and
The revival services at the Memorial
Christian church continue with much
intiiTst. A good audience was present
last night and listened to one of tin
ronnest sermons vet presented by
Evangelist S. T. Martin, on the sub
ject, "How to Read and I niierstanu
the Bible." He said that the people
spun! more time reading the newspa
ner or cook books than the bible. He
urged a systematic study of the bible:
that would enable to rightly divide
the word of God. lie made a very
lear statement of the hero and hero
ine of the bible, Chri.-t being taken as
the hero, and the church as the bride
or heroine. Every book that lias been
published has within a very few years
been revised or become far out of
date, so as to be cast aside, while the
bible has stood for centuries, and is
being read by more and more people
each day. Surely stub a book is worth
time to study. The special solo by J.
II. Davis was well received. As a spe
cial number tonight Mrs. Skinner and
Mr. Davis will sing a duet entitled
"Give Me Thy Heart." Wednesday
night a special number by a male
ipiartet entitled "Going Down to the
(J rave" will lie given, with the large
chorus and the orchestra. The subject
of the sermon tonight will be, "Was
tin? Dying Robber Saved?" The ordin
ance of baptism will be administered
at the close of the service tonight.

County Farmers, Who Think
They Are Getting Whi6ky.
The old cold tea game which thrives
in temperance communities is said to
have been worked on a number of
Rock Island county farmers who visit
ed the saioonless Iowa city the other
day. The visitors were exceedingly
dry and when an individual apprcach-
d and with a wink offered to sell
cold tea" by the bottle they readily
bit and even heeded the admonition
to wait till they got outside the city
before sampling their purchase for
fear of setters. When with their ap
petites whetted by long anticipation
they reached the city limits and tipped
the bottles they found to their honor
that it was really cold tea they had paid
in cents a pint for.

DOGS IN BAGDAD.
Why They Do Not Loot tho
Bazaars of tho Town.
Bagdad is alive with more or less
hungry dogs. - How is It that such
packs of furies do not loot the bazaars
of the town? The explanation is as
simple as it Is interesting. The Bag
dad shop fronts are absolutely open.
The goat and mutton carcasses are
hung where every dog that runs can
reach them. But time out of mind
the first glance of a dog's eye toward
forbidden daintier has been visited

cudgel or a hatchet.
