"If A man stood up nnd told me ho wm
going to preach on tho things I ntn this
afternoon, I'd want him to nrmwer me
several questions, and 1 he could do that,
I'd tell him to go ahead.
Tlrst Are you klndlv disposed toward

knows I am kindly disposed toward you
Second, find knows I would do ntiylhlng
In my power to help you be a bitter man
I want to mnko It easier for you to bo
squarel nnd harder for you to go to hell.
Third, I know what I'm talking about,
for I have thr Bible to back me up In
parts, and the statements of eminent
physicians In oilier parts. And fourth,
"Do I practice what I nreach7' I will
defy and challengo any man or woman
on earth, nnd I'll look any man In the
eye nnd challengo him, In the 27 years I
have been a professing Christian to show
anything against me If I don't live what
I preach, gentlemen, I'll leave tho pulpit
and never walk back hero again
"Christianity Is tho capital on which
you build your character. Don't you lot
tho devil fool you. You never become a
man until you become a Christian.
Christianity Is tho capital on which you
do business. It's your character thnt
gete you anything Your reputation is
what people say about you, hut your
character In what Clod nnd your wlfo
ami the angels know about you, nnd know
you to ba. Many have reputations of good
being, but their characters would mnko
a black mark on a piece of coal or tarred

about the Judgment? Some are Just In llfo

YOu know tin ro Is a hunch of mutts that
sit nrounil on stools nnd whittle and spit
and cuss nnd damn nnd say that every
man who has nn honest dollar ought to
divide It with them, while others get out
nnd get busy and work nnd sweat nnd toll
and prepare to leave something for their
wives nnd fa mil Inn when they die, nnd
spend tho rest for good
"Nnked you carne Into this world, nnd

the alcohol thero Is In It Take that out
and you would as soon drink dishwater
"llv'ry man hnB blood eorpuseles, nnd
their object Is to take tho Impurities out
of your sisteni. I'ersnlrntlnn Is for tho
same thing. Hvery time you work or I
preach tho Impurities como out Hvery
time you swent thero Is a destroying
power going on Inside. The blood gots

some spots there nro tm) pores to the
square inch, nnd a grain of snnd will
cover JO of them. I enn atrip you nnd
cover you with shellac, nnd you'll I,o

and wonderfully made!
"Alcohol knocks the blood corpuscle out
of business, ho that It takes eight to ten
to no what ono ought to do. There's n
man who drinks, llere'a it fellow who
drives n beer wagon. Look how pussy he
la He's full of rotten tissue Ho says
he's healthy. Smell his breath. You
punch your finger In that healthy llesh he
talks about and tho dent will be there n
half nn hour afterward. You look llko
you don't believe It, Try It when you go
to bed tonight. Pneumonia has a Ural
mortgage on a boozc-hlster.
"Take a fellow with good, healthy mus
cles, and you punch them and they bound
out like a rubber band. The first thing
about a crushed strawberry stomnch la
a crushed strawberry nose Nature lets
the public on tho outside, know what Is
going on Inside. If I could Just tnke the
stomach of a moderate drinker and turn
It wrong side out for you It would he all
the temperance lecture you would need
You know what alcohol does to tho white
of an egg. It will took It In n few min

to the nervea as to the white of an egg.
That'll why somo men can't walk. They
stagger because their nerves are partly

and your children and wife good clothes
I'm trying to get you to save your money
Instead of buying a machine for tho sa
loonkeeper while you have to hot-foot it.
"Ily the mace of Cod I have strength
enough to pass the open saloon, but some
of you can't, so I oho It to you to help
"The open saloon Is tho hotbed of an
arUiy. It Is the Incubator of poverty and
crime and vice. It Is the spawning place
of degeneracy. When we get the preach
ers to do this and quit talking about new
Jerusalem, get the Presbyterian to preach
about this Instead of preferment, when
a lot of them haven't anything to prefer,
and the Itaptlats quit yelllngi 'Water,
water, wnttr, water!' and two-thirds of
their bunch going where you can't get a,
drop, we'll dean up this saloon-filled,
brewory-controlled community for Christ.

Just the same. Hut the law can be en
forced against whisky Just the same as it
can be enforced against anything else, If
you have honest officials to eiiforea It
Of course It doean't prohibit Thero Isn't
a law on the books of the State that pro

Do they prohibit? We have laws against
burglary. l,io they prohibit? W have
laws against arson, rape, but they do not

Arty law will prohibit to a certain extent
If honest oltld! enforce it. Iiut no law

For ill Nw Season
OW comes the only high grade six cylinder motor car for less than $1300. The Chandler! This identical car'
last summer broke sales records at $1595 and set the standards of the light six market. This same car, lacking
some ot its present reiinements and witn body design not nearly so beautiful, was a sensation two years ago
It was the pioneer light six. It opened up the whole light six market. Men experienced in the industry said then,
two years ago, that such a car couldn t live at $1785.
And yet here it is today, the class and standard-maker of the market, with the price for this season fixed at $1295.
How can Chandler do it when similar cars still sell from two to five hundred dollars higher?
The Chandler Company has made money from the day that first of the light sixes took the road.
The Chandler has pointed the way every step of the way. And now, with maximum production, with an overhead
expense so small that it astounds other manufacturers, with no old loads to carry and no old scores to wipe out, and
with our working capital of real money, we have set this record-breaking price.
The Chandler for the new season is identically and positively the same model the whole country admired so much at
$1595. We will continue it throughout the season at the new price. And there is no other car that, by the utmost
stretch of argument, can be considered as competing with it.
At this new price, the pioneer Chandler retains absolutely every
feature of construction and quality that has made it the leader
of all light sizes. You will find all these features on the
Chandler, and jnot on any other six selling for less than $2000.
