r If- 1 1 i v' DR. BROWN GIVES FAREWELL SERMON c Has Been Pastor of First Baptist !" Church Eleven Years Rev. Dr. T. Edwin Brown, for the past eleven years pastor of the First Baptist church, preached his final fcormon yesterday morning. As it was communion Sunday at the church, a large number of parishioners were I1EV. DR. T. EDWIN BROWN. present to bid farewell to Dr.' Brown. He sftoke in part as follows; ' "One of the. marked features of, our Lord's character was his absolute i loyalty- to ; a; cause. .' His loyalty con ! fetantly recurs like the theme, in music, : through -all the varied harmonies of his wonderful life. 'To this end was ' i I born and for this cause came I until the world. The cause to which he gave himself was the establishment 1 o the- common weaitn o uoa on earth, the reign of God, the doing of the will of God in all the personal, , eocial and international relationships i of men through the personal redemp !. tlon, of men from sin to righteousness, lroni selfishness to love. Devotion to f this cause-was the determining test, ithe final interpretation of all He thought, or said, or did. For the ; cause He - lived, prayed, wrought, r fought, "stiffened and died. This feast ' of love spread here this morning in i, which" we remember our Master, is a proclamation world "; wide , and - age long, of loyalty to His cause, There iis no, good, no,, cause which has moral, ;physlcal and spiritual welfare for its jaim, ..that this great , cause does not vlcover; and? When this , cause finally triumphs' every1 wrong will have been permanently righted and every worthy human aspiration have - reached its gcaL ... He expects His . disciples , to fctand-for the cause for which He stands, as He stands for it. It is hot enough : to be personally devoted to Him, to , love Him.;?wp mst be , de voted to His cause. He so loved it that everything' 'in His- career t paid i tribute to it. And we are to stand for Him in this worl drills honor and His success are in our. hands. Every man is in; the, sum, total,, hid life is stand ing for , righteousness"-cfr for the op posite. He cannot starid for both or .neither. The call of the hour to pro f essed disciples, is for Increasing and i intelligent loyalty to the cause to Which Jesus was devoted, the fcause of righteousness, of the triumph Of the Will of God. If ever there was a day when petty, hesitating, half-hearted Christianity had any place this is not 'fittCh rf day. This is- the day for stal warts, for loyalists, who shall be aflame with a devotion which domi nates ith a mighty, masterful paa stoib all" lesser aims. The opportuni ties which claim Christian service and the perils which demand Christian de fense are alike more tremendous than ever in history. The demoralisation .wrought by this Satanic war are giv ing, 'great rioweririg 3f Christian ideals, prise; great paralysis to religious feel ing, gheat lowering of Christian ideals. Somehow ;, we must trust that good will . be tne final goal of all .this ill.

Dark Era of World's Crisis. "And so in this dark era of the world's crisis, in the era, too, of your own church crisis, may I urge upon you beloved friends that you seek each one for himself and each for his brother and tor the church as a whole an enlarged and ever enlarging loyalty to the only cause that was great enough to absorb all the activi ties of the mind and heart and to con trol the absolute devotion of the will of the world's greatest hero and God's well beloved son. Give yourselves anew to the institutions and activities ot your church life, to the things that will best promote the cause of the kingrdom. Make this test of your con duct in relation to the church. Will your faithfulness help, will your neg lect hinder the progress of the king dom? Study much the principles and the purposes of the kingdom in. its large outlines. Study much the char acter and work of the supreme master and organizer of all the kingdom forces, who in his own life and char acter revealed that will of God which it was his prayer and aim to have everywhere done. Keep in -close comradeship with 'him. Strive might ily to be the most : religious, deeply spiritual, truthful, honorable, gra cious. Winsome christian charaVTers you can" be. Make the most and ever more and more of your Bible school, your Sunday morning worship and your prayer meeting. Your work here, strong, helps the kingdom, Weak, hurts the kingdom. Seek a great, urgent, spiritual loyalty. Loyalty here with faith in the love and wisdonrt 'of the; One Master and Commander, who J is with us in the blackest night, is the only way we have of expressing . to that cause of world redemption and world righteousness and world su.b Jugdtion .a last to the will of God to which that great Master and Com mander, bur Master, gave the passion and fullness of his life." s First Baptist Ch-urch.

Spencer And Reinhold O F&llC HALLORAN OPENS NOVEL CAMPAIGN That New Britain is fast becoming metropolitan in the methods of adver tising used by our merchants, to call the buying public's attention to the many splendid values which they are offering, also that the wide-awake tirm of Jos. M. Halloran, Incorporat ed, are keeping up with and Jut a little ahead of the times in an adver tising respect is again practically demonstrated by what is perhaps the most elaborate system of advertising ever attempted by any business house in this section, namely: the giving away of the beautiful De Luxe Gra fanola which is now on exhibition at their store. This Grafanola retails at $200.00. The principal points of superiority Of this celebrated Grafanola over any other lie in the rich, deep, even tone so much admired. In the recent interview with Mr. Halloran regarding this decided inno vation in advertising, Mr. Halloran stated: "We have been enjoying the. patronage and confidence of the buy era of this community for come time now and by always trying to keep our stocks complete the saying that You can get it at Halloran's' has become a household expression. We have made alterations in our store. Every de partment has been reorganized. Hav ing a great deal more room, w hn added several departments. In giv ing away this Grafanola we are ac tuated by a double purpose, to show our appreciation of the patronage of our friends during the past, alio to encourage new trade and to bring the many, splendid values we are now showing in all lines to the attention, of every buyer in this territory. The plan we are Using in giving away this Gra fanola is equitablei and lair to all, eimply this, we will give votes the late.or one ror every cent of pur chase. The person returning to -us-on March 1, I9i the largest number of votes will be given the Grafanola ab solutely free of all cost. No favors will be shown. Our reputation for "square dealing t assures our custom ers of that fact." This two hundred dollar Grafanola is surely a present worth having and we predict a very "merry race" for votes during the next few months. Mr. Halloran is surely to be con gratulated upon his . broad-mladed methods and "Trade Getter' adycrtls- 'Joseph McEnroe has r Kansas City after ' pcn weeks at hi horaa la th ONE YEAR'S SUP!
