" AT THE TENT.
Lots of People in Roanoke Asking
There wero about 800 people present nt
the Baptist tent meeting yesterday morn?
ing and the ;openlng services were con?
ducted by Rev. Thomas J. Shipman. The
Hervlces were opened by the choir sinning
j ""Walt and Mo?rn Not,"atter which Rev.
"I. W. Kimuol led in prayer. Dr. Brougn
tou announced the funeral of the child of
. .'Mr. and Mra.*Wm. Jones which would
? take place from the residence of Mr. B.
A. Jones at 3:80 in the<afternoon. .
Dr. White began by reading a long list
of requests for prayers which had been
\ . sent up from the very largo congregation
assembled. Some of these requests
allowed much tenderness and fervor on
tho part of friends aud loved ones.
The text for the morning was Matt.
4:1?. Subject "Fishing for Men."
Dr. White said:
"Mau is much moro precious than fish.
The greatest blessing that ever came to
us is whon 'Jesus fished out our souls
from sin. We must follow Him. Fish?
ing for men is our work.
"Soul fishermen must be equipped os
*ny other fishermen. The preacher is not
the only man to do it. The fisherman
must have the right kind of tackle. There
must be the right bait. Study men, study
their dispositions nnd temperaments.
Pinns are necessary;we saw the need of it
lost night. Hast night, there was nobody
here to take the names of the converts.
What do [you'let yourself be appointed
for a work for and then not do it'? Trust
to your pastors for some common sense.
Get down where sinners are. Not worth
while to fish in a tub. .You deacons and
women, leave your business long enough
to find the lost. Tho Christian's business
is to catch men.
"Jesus has not put us here to save the
church. ' The cburch Is an Incidental
affair. It's put here to save men. God
will blot out some of our churches if they
don't save men. We are not here to save
the Bible. That's fixed. .The church has
lost time in fighting Ingerso'l and a few
other mein rascals like him. Not here
to edify one another. The church wants
a preacher that will preach a sweet gospel
that touches nobody,specially don't touch
"What are we doing* How much
money are we giving and what'work are
we doing? Wc don't want our founda?
tions nrokeu up. Bwcet service. What
does it do if sinners are not reached and
men not made to quake under sin.
"Oh, preachers and churches, turn on
the light in this city. Let the world see
sirs. I'd not serve any church that would
not help me save souls. (Amen from the
preachers.) The crucial test is, will not
you follow Jesus? You have no right to
change what God says. Some of you say
I'll play cards when 1 please. I'll dance,
drink whiskey, 'cuss.' You, you can
do all this when you please, but you are
not following Jesus.
"If you are not catching men. some?
thing is wrong. Come in close touch
with Jesus und go! go!"
The invitation was then given for nil
those who realized that in their lives
there was something they wanted to give
tip that iuiuht be used for soul winning
to como up, and a great crowd came.
It seems that everyone is interested in
the Baptist tent meeting and it certainly
looked like every one was there last
night. The tent was filled to'its capacity
when the services commenced. The
opening services were conducted by Rev.
T. J. Shipman and among those present
on the platlorra were Rev. E. J. Wheeler,
of Bedford county,'and Prof. C. L. Cocke,
of Holl ins. After the singiug of the sec?
ond hymn Prof. Cocke led in prayer,ufter
which the choir nnd the large congrega?
tion jointed in singing "There is a Foun?
tain Filled With Blood," and that old
hymn which baa'been sung so many
times nnd which has been the means of
bringing more touls to Christ than all
other in the book, seemed to tell a new
and more wondrous story as It was waft?
ed forth [on tho~eren?ng atr by 2,000
Dr. White selected ns his text the 17th
verse of the 14th chapter of Luke.
"Come, for all things uro now ready;"
also Revelations. S2d chapter aud 17th
verse, "The spirit and the bride say
como." These people all with one accord
made excuses when invited to come to
the .Saviour. Some one excuse and some
another, each to them sufficient, und the
sinner to day is making the same excuses
when asked to como to Christ. But an
excuse will not do; it is false; there is no
excuse to help you from coming to
Christ, and there is no 'sinner in^hell to?
day who is there for any other cause than
that he absolutely refused of his own ac?
cord to come to Christ and he saved.
He spoke of tho wondrous love Christ
had for sinners, and no matter how vile
they might.be and how low they had
sunk in the eyes of the world, which sees
as through a glass,darkly,*that you could
always turn and find that success for
which the soul 'yearns and will not bo
satisfied without. Continuing he ;.sald,
"You aro afraid you can't hold out. This
shoubl not .bother you; come to Christ
relying solely upon Him and He will see
you 's?fely out and landed at home.
When must I conies' Now! Now is the
accepted time. Don't wait until I am
through preaching,but'accept Christ now;
don't put it ofE until to-mcrrow, it may
be too late. Now is God's time and if you
put it off it may be said to 'you the same
as was said to those who were iuvited to
the supper, 'You are not worthy.' "
He then closed with an appeal to sin?
ners to come to Christ and about twenty
or thirty responded to the call aud came
After singing "Just ns 1 Am," the con?
gregation was dismissed by Dr. White.'J^
