The subject was "Victory."
"Victory means that the soul has
been struggling in the shadows of the
wrath of an angry God and Is liberated
by the Lord Jesus Christ. Wo have vic?

the cross, and if 'you can get a man to
think of Christ on the cross* it will bring

with the Father.
"Christ ?ives us victory by transform?

us lire. We can only get this lifo?1 mean
eternal life?from Christ. The grave
shall give up its dead, and we that are of
Christ, having His image in our hearts,
shall meet Him aud He will give us a
crown of victory and the darkness will
bo'lifted off of those live? then."
Mr. Lunsford preache?' an eloquent and
forcible sermon. He proved to all who
heard him last night that he Is an able
pulpit orator. He closed by calling on
the Rev. T. J. Shipmau to lead in prayer.
Mr. Dunsford requested the Christians

of the growing tendency toward Sabbath
desecration iu our city, thus tending to
undermine morality and lower the tone
of Christian living, nnd 'in view of the
effort recently made by the authorities of
