EXCUSES MEN HAKE
IN RELIGIOUS LIFE
Man's Existence Does Not Consist in
Material Possessions, Holds
Last evening at Memorial Christian
church Dr. H. O. Breeden preached on
the old theme of "Excuses." A good
audience heard this old theme present
ed in a fresh manner. Dr. Breeden has
said from the very first that all men
are religiously inclined, meaning, of
course, that most men in a general way j
have religious convictions and feel i
morally responsible towards their mat
He said that all men desire to be
righteous desire to be saved. But so
many have false notions as to the best
things in life. They fail to discrimin
ate between that which is passing and
that which is permanent. They are
prone to get the secondary first, and
the primary last. "A man's life does
not consist in the abundance of the
things which he may possess," said tne
doctor. -'Life is' more than meat; more
than getting; more than applauFe hear
ing. But when a man is brought face
to face with the greatest of all ques
tions the one that relates to his char
acter and his soul, he will excuse him
self on the grounds that his environ
ment, the peculiar nature of his posi
tion or profession, or the unethical re
lations which his business forces him
to sustain to his fellows. He will ar
gue that he isn't in a position to ac
cept Christ just yet. Or he intends to
at a later time. Or, he will excuse him
self on the grounds that the competi
tive struggle Is so keen that he can't
stop and give attention to religious
matters else his opponent will take ad
vantage of him." There were two ac
cessions at the service last night. To
morrow will probably be the last Sun
day, as the meetings will probably
close about the middle of next week.
There will be three services tomorrow.
At 10:43 a. m. Dr. Breeden will speak
upon the theme, "Things to Think
About." The second and third mis
sions will-join in the morning service.
At 3 p. m. the theme will be "Gam
bling and Prostitution in Rock Island."
This will be a meeting for men only.
The mayor, the council and the labor
ing men of the city have been Invited.
At 7:30 p. m. the theme will be "Can
a Moral Man be Saved?" There will
be special music by the Lintt brothers
and the chorus at all the services.

ON FOR DEBATE
Augustana Debating Team Re-
IS ANXIOUS TO BE SHOWN
WU! Likely lie Accommodated Iur-1
insr I'retient Year First Com
bat With Lombard.
It is probable Augustana will have
another intercollegiate debate this
year. Yesterday a challenge for a de -
bate was received from William and
Jewell college of Liberty, Mo. This is
one of Missouri's largest colleges, hav
ing an enrollment ia the college de-
i partment alone of over GOO.
Last year William and Jewell had
a debate with Bethany college of
Lindsborg, Kan., Augustana's old foe,
and was defeated by Bethany on the
same question that Augustana beat
Bethany.' William and Jewell mei
took notice of the fact that Augustana
scored a victory over Bethany on a
question where they had failed, and
now for that reason they want to take
a whack at Augustana.
HOLDS HIGH UAK.
William and Jewell college has al
ways ranked high in debating, and it
1 would De to Augustana s advantage to
annex the new relation. Last year the
William and Jewell debating team de
feated the Arkansas university team
and the Drury college team. Both of j
these last named schools turn out good j
debating teams. It was the fact that j
Bethany college defeated a debating
team from a school of the calibre of
William and Jewell last year that made
Bethany so confident of victory over

doubt will, judging from the present

sleepiness. He Lad no choice on the
stae, no one looked like a protago

took hia 25 cents worth In untroubled
slumber. All through the acting out
of the piece he slept and when the cur-

the p!aylio;i?e emptied, but Jonathan
remained. His friends on thu way
home missed his timely jokes anl
went back to the playhoune. The
owners had derided to furnigs'e and
they retched Jonathan Just in tim
to save his life. He was unconsci
ous but after some efTort was re
vived. First Baptist Revival.
