GOVERNMENT CLERKS
COMPLAIN OF LIGHTING
Treasury Workers Circulate Peti
tion for Old Office Hours.
Insufficient electric lighting equip
ment in government buildings may
be responsible for abandoning the

system was introduced by John A.
Beeler, traffic expert, six months ago.

| The Treasury is an example of
! a building poorly equipped for work
after dark. The electrical equip
ment there is not sufficient for
carrying the current when all de
partments are working at full force.
Consequently the clerks have circu
lated a petition asking for a return

A Prophetic Bible Lecture
THE CRASH
OF EMPIRES
A Biblical Address on the Present World Situation, and
the Coming International Government to Maintain
Lasting Peace.
Based on the Ancient Prophecies of the
Bible By
CARLYLE B. HAYNES
Of Atlanta, Ga., Author, Minister and Lecturer
POLI'S THEATER
Sunday Afternoon
December 15 at 3 o'Clock
Doors Open at 2:30. Children Unaccompanied by Adults
Not Admitted.
Admission Free All Welcome
Mr. Haynes' writing* will be found in nearly 500,000
American homes, his books on religions subjects attaining
a remarkable circulation. His book, ' Our Lord's Return,"
has been sold to the extent of 200,000 copies in the last
two years. For many years he has been speaking to large
audiences in the great cities of America. He is a diligent
student of the prophecies, and his addresses are without
that fanaticism and sensationalism sometimes accompany
ing prophetic interpretation.
For thousands of years nations have risen. livrd out their
little day of triumph and glory, and gone into the silcnce. Their
names today have become synonyms for lust, cruelty and idola
try, as well as for pride and power. Their ancient opulence is
but a dream, their proudest monuments of imperial greatness
are vast ruins, desolate palaces and broken sculptures; their
grandeur had departed; the laws which they imposed on the
world are buried in the dust of ages, with none to yield them
allegiance; their cities and pageantries and glories have shrunken
to dust, and all that made up their power has been swallowed
up by the cavernous years.
How lone is this world-old rise and fall "of nations to con
tinue? How long v.ill generations of men be born, linger
awhile and die? How long is this strange and curious game
of birth and death to go on?
Is an ultimate nation, founded on justice, never to be con
quered, eternal in its duration, to rule the earth?
It is with the desire of deepening the interot which doubt
less you have already felt in the fascinating study of Bible
prophecy as related to current problems of world statesman
ship that we cordially invite you to attend the first of the
Hayncs' meetings at Poli's Theater, Sunday afternoon, Decem
ber 15, at 3 o'clock. The following Sunday afternoon Mr.
Haynes will speak at the Belasco Theater on she subject, "The
Return of Jesus."
The meeting will be open to all without charge. Invite
your friends to come with you. If you desire a good seat,
.come early.
?* And come with an earnest prayer that God will greatly
bless these meetings to the salvation of souls and the strength
ening of Christian experience.
Special music by orchestra. Come ready to join in the
singing.
