;Tabernacle Crowded to Hear Evangelist, and Forty-Four
Cbnverts Press Forward. at Close of the Sermon---Plans
Being Laid for Holding Ground Gained---Miss Frances
Gage, Young Woman's Christian Association Worker,
Coming Friday.
"Youn ladies, when somee young
men conlls around asking you to
marry him to reform him-silmply
tell him that you are not running
a Keeley Institute."
"An itle man could no more he a
Christian than the devil himself.
Did you ever see a Christian bum?"
"Oh,' you say. '1 haven't got time
to be a Christian.' Yes, hbut you
will take time In calh in one of
these days. Then where will you
"You say, 'L'm not a Christian he
cause there are hypocrites in thie
church." Oh, don't be discouraged
on that ground-you know there is
always roolli fIr one more."
"I can afford to a*ssoelite with a
few hypocrites now that I may
escape being associated with thimt
in eternity, for every hypoctite will
be inl bell and certainly this town
will furnish her quota, too."
"An excuse is what you give
when you haven't a reason."
"I will only pass this way one
time, no I want to get all I can oult
of life, and put all I can into it for
God. and humanity. Iome of you
die and 10 days after you are gone
the world will not miss you."
"~Iow do you expect to be pure
whol you heep the company you
keep. I would defy an angel trom
the sky to come down hero and
keep the company you do regularly
and remain pure. How do you
expeet- to keep pure if ye live in
the getter of sla and Iniquity?"
The workers who are with Mr.
Lowry say that his sermon on "Ex
cusss" Is one of the most convincing
that ho preaohea. It certainly laid
hold of his atdlence last evening and
Ithere Is evidence of cumulative in-'
terest as the meetlngs draw to a close.
Plans are being perfected with the
purpose of holding the ground gained
during this saumpaign.
A most encouraging item of news
is the telegram reeilved from Miss
Frances Gage last evening. Miss Gage
,Is the general secretary for the
northwest, including Oregon, Wash
Ington, Idaho and Montana, Young
Women's Christian association. Miss
Gage will arrive In Missoula Friday
morning to look over the field, and if
conditions seem right, to help Mrs.
Moody organise the city Y. W. C. A.
whose need is so evident. The Chrls
tlan wotkers of Missoula will, no
doubt, give the secretary a cordial
Mr. Lowry chose for his text last
t.r.eing Luke 9:01, "Another also said,
Lord I will follow Thee, but-."
"We find that from the first act of
sin In the Garden of Eden down to our
present time, man has always been
excusing himself for living in sin.
Adam said. 'The woman whom Thou
gavest to be with me, she gave me of
the tree and I did eat.' The woman
said, 'Thu serpent beguiled mie and I
did eat.' They both excused them
selves for their sin, but In so doing
toey each really put the blame on
the Lord.
"We have a good illustration of this
text in the cead of the rich man of
whom Christ told us in the fourteenth
chapter of Luke, 'Which made a great
feast and sent out his servants to in
vite his friends, telling them that all
things were ready.' But they all with
one consent began to make excunses.
The first said he had bouglht a piecec
,of ground anld must go to see it. Now
" that was a poor excuse. If thie rman
had been foolish enough to buy the
ground without seenlg It, why, he
could have waited a few days longer,
if necessary: real estate is not ai per
ishable commodity.
"Thle second wanted to b, exc.used
because he had bought five yoke of
oxen, and Imust go and p'rove them,
that is, try thenm to see if they
would work. Why didn't hei prove
them before he bought themo? Now
that they were his own, lie could
prove them at any time.
"Tile third ian had married a wife,
and, tberefore, lie must be excused.
Why, didn't lhe take his wif'g with
him"? Doubtless she \would havte en
joyed the feast.
"Hut, probably that oianll \1,a like ia

"And another Mild. 'I will follow

whether I speak for nitel'rl" (John

"And another also said, 'l.iod, I will
follow Thee, but there are hypocrites
In the church.' ()h, don't be discour
aged on that grounld, there is always
room for one more, you know.
"What would von think of a man
pointing tut a stumbling block in his
way, and then goes and stumbles over
It? You would say he was a fool,
would you not? And yet that is just
what you are doing when you point to
nllne poor, weak, stumbling Christian
and say, I'ml not a Christian because
there are hypocrites In the hurrch.'
Are you going to stay out of busl'
ness beicause there are hypocrites in
Ituinans? Why, no, of course not;
you have better sense when it comes
to a thing like that.
"Did you ever reci a counterfeit $10
hill? Yes. Why was It counterfeited?
Because It was wortol counterfeiting.
Was the $10 bill to blame? No. Do
people counterfeit scraps of brown
paper? No. Why? Because they are
not worth counterfeiting. Did you ever
see a counterfeit Christian? Yes, .1
oit. Wity was he counterfited? lie.
cause he was worth coulnterfeiting.
Wasi he to blame. No. Now did you
ever oe an clmonttterfelt Infidel? No.
Why, )uU ask? limply because he is
not worth counterfeiting.
"Tthe fact that there are hypocrites
show that there must he genuine
Christians. It is nothing to your
credit to point to some poor, weak,
stuimbling Christian and say that 'I am
as good as he is, if I were no better I
would not show myself in public.'
Well, you may, 'I don't propose to ns*
sociate with hypocrites.' Well, you
had better rotle to Jesus C(hrist, then,
for I can tasure you upon thti ground
of (rkl's word, that all 'hypocrites will
be in hell. Yes, to a manl, and if you
don't repent of your sins you will be
there with them. I c(in afford to lie
associated with some hyplocrite now,

Now, It's a nice crowd you've chosen,
eh? They all belong to you-they are
on your side.' You fellows should not
be so particular about associating
with hypocrites-these hylpcrites are
simply some of your crowd, some of
the goats that have gotten Into the

made over into sheep, that's all.
Don't Feel Like it.
"Another also al:l. 'lord, I will fol.

is a very common excuse. 'I don't
feel like It.' What kind of feeling de
you tllhink you ought to have? Yoe
say, 'Well, I don't feel convicted
inough.' You know you are a slnner,
don't you? How do we know we are
slnners: because we feel Ilke' it? Why,
the devil will make you feel like the

can. I know I iam a sinner beeause

experience, and here Is a. command,

Lord and he will have mercy uniin
him, and to our load for he will abun

you to turn from your sin; never ndlnA
whether you feel like It or not. laut
another says, 'Well, I don't feIl like
people say they feel when they are
ennvertisl.' Why, of course you dolin't.
Your can't expect thei feeling of joy
'until you clnme to Christ. Cll. 5:22-28,
'ior the fruit of the spirit is love, joy,
pleacie, etc.' Nolw, when dio we get
this joy and peace? When we come
to Chrlst and not before. It Is not
'feeling' you wtant to 'maike you aI
Christlan, but 'faith.' Feeling comer
as a result of knori'ledge and inot as
a witness, or testimolny that we are
sarved. I know that 1 am saved througt
faith and that brings the fueling or
joy and peace.

Garros and Simon had Just returned

the barriers. Before the machines
could be returned to the hangar, the
people had surrounded the aviators
and their craft and were .pulling on
the machines, threatening to tear them
apart, when hurried orders were given
to reascend.
Revolving of the propeller blades

the crowd. From the grounds, how
ever, the last seen of Garros he was

Nan Antonl, Texas, Feb. 1.-(IpeC
clal.)-Interest In Irrigation in south
west Texas is growing rapidly. Some
of the greatest projects of the kind In
the nation are In this section of the
state-In the lower Rio Grande valley,
near Laredo, in the Nueces valley, in
the Pecos valley and along many other
streams in the state. But while these
are great and have attracted nation
wide attention, they are but the be
ginning of a movement that will put
the entire southwestern part of the
state in shape for cultivation. Farm
ers in almost every locality are ar
ranging to conserve the storm waters
of the rivers and creeks. Dams are
building and reservoirs in course of
construction for storing water to be
used upon the land when needed. In
addition to this the artesian belt
sweeps under a wide section of south
west Texas. Hundreds of wells have
been sunk tapping this everlasting
stream, and others are being put
down. Wherever the sill has been
tnouched with water it has proved so
fertile that results have been almost
startling. While some great Irrigation
projects of the north and west have
attracted attention and the Roosovelt
dam in Colorado has been heralded
It is but merely child's effort when
compared with the Irrigation already
accomplishd and preparations now on
in southwest Texas. By this effort
millions of acres will be brought un
der the domain of the plow within the
next two years.

There Is nothing new gbout the idea of
using sage for restoring the colr of the
hair. Our great-grandmothers kept thleir
Ioek` ol't, d1r'k and glos:ly by u;ing a
''sage ta." Whenever their hair fell out
or took on a dull, faded or streaked ap
pearanve, they made a brew of sage'
leavets lad atlli,'d it to their hair with
wonderfully beneticial effect. Nouwadays
we don't have to resort to the old-time,
tiresome method of gathering the herbs
and mnakiir. the brew. This Is done by
skillful obhe.ists better than w3 could do
it ourselves, and all we have to do is to
call for the ready made product. Wyeth's
