MOTHER THE THEME
AT REVIVAL SERVICE
Impressive Meeting Last Evening at
the Memorial Christum
The "Mother service" at the Memor
ial Christian church la3t night, con
ducted by Dr. H. O. Breeden and the
Lintt brothers, was the largest and
most tender of all the services held
by these men. The large auditorium
was filled and nearly every auditor
wore a white flower In memory of
mother. The song service was unique
and beautiful. Prof. Lintt led the large
chorus in singing the old songs our
mothera used to sing with wonderful
pathos and power. After the first
verse of "Jesus Saviour, Pilot Me," a
mother in the congregation led in
prayer. Then followed the second
verse of the hymn, "As a mother stills
her child," etc., sutg by the mothers
in the congregation and followed by
other prayers by mothers.
Dr. Breeden called for scripture quo
tations from memory, scriptures which
were favorites of our mothers. .Gordon
Lintt sang one of his sweetest solos
entitled, "Memories of Mother." The
sermon which followed was entitled
"An Old Fashioned Mother." The
evangelist dwelt with tender and
touching emphasis upon "mother's
prayers," "mother's influence," and
"mother's love." His tribute to hi3
own mother was surpassingly beautiful
and melted the audience to tears.
There, were a number of accessions
to the church at the close of the ser
vice. Tonight pr. Breeden will speak on
the theme, "What Must I Do To Be
Saved 711. There will be three services
tomorrow. The theme at the morning
hour will be "The Shepherd Psalm." At
3 o'clock In the afternoon tomorrow
there will be a service for men only.
Dr. Breeden will speak on the theme,
"Reaping the Whirlwind." Boys over
12 years and all men of the city are
invited. Prof. Lintt will direct "The
Maennerchor." Gordon Lintt will sing
"I'll die on the Field." At 7:30 p. m.
the theme will be "The Divinity of
Christ" or "Whose Son is He?"
Church for the Child.
The Ministerial Alliance will meet!
Monday afternoon at 4 o'clock at the
Y. M. C. A. Rev. T. E. Newland, pas
tor of the First Methodist church, will
conduct the devotional exercises. Rev.
S. G. Hagglund, pastor of the First
Swedish Lutheran church, will read a
paper on the subject, "The Efforts of
the Church for the Child."

CUT PHONE CALLS
Danville Company Puts Monitor
on Line to Cut Out Use
BIG DECREASE IS SHOWN
Claimed That Better Service Can Be
- Given Than Formerly Business
Lines Xot Affected.
Joe Cannon owes part of his unpopu
larity to the facility with whicX as
speaker of the house, he has choked off
debate. Down at Danville, Uncle Joe's
town, the telephone company has un
dertaken to emulate his example. Act
ing on the belief that a great deal of un
necessary conversation was going on
over the wires and that visiting, flirt
ing, etc., was takfng up altogether too
much time by patrons and attention
by the operators the company has in
stalled "monitors'' to cut in on con
versations and determine whether they
are worth burdening the wires with.
If it is found that the lines are being
used for idle talk the parties are dis
connected and, if they insist upon
continuing, they are given a "calling."
Owing to a misunderstanding it had
been supposed by the public that the
monitors were to go on duty a day
earlier than they actually did, and it
is claimed that, as a result of the fear
that they would "listen in" there were
20,000 less calls than ordinarily that
day. On the residence phones there
was a slight falling off and there was
quite ta noticeable reduction in calls
from cigar stores and drug stores,
while phones in saloons did practically
nothing at all. It is claimed that the
monitors are a great success and have
greatly improved the service at no in
creased expense to the company.
GOIXG TOO FAR.
Of course we are all anxious for
good phone service, but how would you
like to have an operator supervising
your line of talk over the phone that
you were paying a good round rental
for? Very likely you would do to the
phone what the Insurgents have now
virtually done to Uncle Joe .throw it
out of doors.
CACTUS CENTRE'S JINGO.
A feller blowed among us, from across
the Texas way,
He claimed to be a cowboy, but war
talk was his lay;
He'd harp upon the chances of a big
war with Japan
Till he had us plannin' battles and en
listin' to a man.
He sure was most convincin' when
upon his special line;
He had the strength of navies and the
fightin' units fine;
We clean forgot our poker and the run
of drinks was light,
When we sat around and listened to
this jingo talkin' fight.
But the stranger got to fussin' with old
Chinese Jim one day,
And the oriental slapped him, and jest
took his gun away.
Whereupon Bear Hawkins murmurs,
"Boys, I sure am plum surprised
That this imitation Hobson ever got us
So we organized a Peace club, and we
all swore to the pact.
And to shoot the jingo's boot-heels was
our first official act;
And he faded o'er the cactus in the fall
in' shades of night.
And we know the Joy of livin' now that
no one's talkin' fight.
