THE KIND OF* SERMON.
The editor of The Intelligencer was
recently asked by a minister to define
what kind of sermon we thought a
minister should preach. This ques
tion, we feel, was not prompted hy
Idle curiosity, and we Bhall endeavor
to, answer it as a layman, and as a
listener In the pew. The minister
who asked the question 1B considered
a fearless and able, consecrated and
earnest minister who has convictions
and has no fear in expressing them.
Ho IB trying to drive out sin and
show that the religion he is preach
ing la made for every day use, and
can bemused under the conditions con
fronting the man in this day and time.
He believes in condemning wrong do
ing, and In reclaiming the wrong
doer. He thinks the pulpit should not
preach too much of the theology of
the PSSt, nor of the creeds of the
church, but should stand for truth,
honesty, sobriety, and all right living.
Bo The Intelligencer ??olleve? that
tbs things this minister stands tor
are the things any minister who hopes
to accomplish any good through his
ministry should stand for. The prophet
Nathan said to David, when he was
being chided for having Uriah killed
at the battle front, and the guilt for
taking the life of the "lone lamb" was
to be fastened: "Thou art the man!'
Bo must the modern minister who
really amounts to a force in a com
munity for right living stand before
those who do wrong, and fearlessly
say: "Thou are the man." No man
has ever been saved from his sin andi
convicted of it by the namby-pamby
preaching of those who think their |
full duty is performed when they pro
pound s creed hoary with age and not ]
at atl suited to modern conditions,
and which ls not understood by the
average layman, and which he does
not care about even If he understands
IL Now The Intelligencer fears that
this -?mark will be the subject of crit
icism, but lt ls the truth, and the
modern Samsons in theology do not
Indulge Ia such. For instance Billy
Sunday and his powerful preaching,
or any ot the other giants who are ]
redeeming the world today..never take]
up their ttme nor that ot their audi
ences hy discussing ancient and thumb
worn creeds and doctrines. Modern
Christianity applied to modern life tc
what the average man (sinner) needa
Is this the kind of spiritual food they
ard receiving? You who sit in the
pears know. Hat the church lost.Its
power? ls it saving mea today? Aro
men reclaimed from their ways of sin
by the average preacher today? Let
the pulpit and the pew think of these
thjags and see wherein Iles the blame
lt they are not.
PASS IT ALONG.
State of North Dakota has be
gun to put Into operation a plan which
should bring thousands ot new set
'I?jra?!thtn the next year. The leg
islature has appropriated $60,000 for
the promotion of Immigration in the
next two yeera. R. Y. Flint, commis
sioner ot agriculture has given an 1m
p?ttr> tb the plan hy asking the co
HH?P??? ot all the count., news
papers in the State to induce their
readers to write personal letters td
old friends "back home." Those far
mers who are well situated and' who
have prospered are urged to write
their friends and relative? la thc old
Stsvt?s, In the cities and in Europe,
telling them ot their success, of
th* resources of the State, how they
raise corn, clover, alfalfa, cattle and
hogs and In fact, to try and induce
those fiends to break away from the
.itlcH and the older commun it les and
settle in North Dakota.
The (dun seems tu be a good ona
and doubtless will result lu a great
Kain in the population of North
Dakotu. But the plun need not be
routined to that State alone. Any
prosperous rural community can bene
fit itself if its energetic men and wo
men will help to ?prend the gospel of
country life. Almost every one of our
readers eau think of some friend or
relative now struggling along in some
town or city who, if transplanted to
a modest farm, would be healthier,
happier and more prosperous than
they are at present. Let our readers
?ty tho North Dakota plan. Write to
your friends, tell them what you are
doing and what you mean to do. point
out to them that farming today is no*,
what it was 40, 30 or even ten years
ago. Write to your old home town
newspapers and let your old friends
and neighbors know how well you are
getting on. l'ass a good thing along.
You will be doing your friends a favor

POOR BILLY KINDAY.
Poor Billy Sunday is having lils own
troubles, lt seems that there are peo
ple, who even though they*may be
lieve, that "the laborer Is worthy of
his hire," think that he ought to tell
his employers what ho does with the
money they give him. It is estimated
that the evangelist makes about $200,
000 a year and yet this immense sum
does not bring peace and serenity to
the. plain-speaking preacher. Some
body ls always asking, not "where did
you get it?" but "what are you doing
with lt?" Sunday has hardly lett

s?lection of a man for treasurer of
the institution la not denied by any
one who knows oC Fred M. Burnett.
He is a native of North Carolina and
wa ; educated at Mars Hill College,
later going to th? University ct Nash
ville and taking a special training
course for teachers. After that he
took special graduate work at Cen
tral University of Kentucky.
For three years Mr. Burnett had
experience as a teacher in a private
school for boys at Dallas, Texas. For
five yen.'s bad expedience as gen
eral secretary in Y. M. C. A. work.
Eighteen months ago he came to An
derson to assume the secretaryship of
the Anderson Young Men's Christian
Association. Several months ago when
the revenues of this organisation di
minished to the point where the salary
of the secretary could no tbe paid, s
number of public spirited men o.
Anderson organized th? Paramount
motion picture theatre In order that r
means of assuring his salary might b<
provided and thia valuable citlzer
kept in Anderson.
The new treasurer of. the college
needs no introduction to the people
of this community, nor are" words of
a complimentary nature necessary.
He came among the people of Ander
son a year and a half ago practically
a strnger. He has'lived mong them
nd worked* with them, both the high
and the lowly, and has acquired f
hold upon the effectipns and the con
fidence of the public at large that is
almost without parallel In this city.
A revolver is a nickle plated sub
stitute for bravery, which has practi

The revolver gives a puny man with
a 6-8-inch brain and the pluck of a
grasshopper a 100 yard reach and
makes him more deadly than a Sioux
Indian. There was a time when this
country hsd no dangerous animals,
except bears and wolves, and life was
safe, except on the frocilers, but now

use their skulls for n dime novel

cannon In their hip pockets, produc
