THE CHIEF AVOCATION
The Mesa Stores Over Inviting Oppor
tunities. Msea stores present an attractive ap
pearance these days. Many Christmas
windows In which are displayed sug
gestions for the holiday shopper have
already been decorated and tho stores
themselves have begun to attract large
numbers of patrons. The assortment
of gifts now on display is large and
varied and well calculated to satisfy
even the discriminating buyer. New
goods are continuing arriving and be
ing placed so that by the end of the
week it will be a purchaser bard to
please, who cannot find a suitable gift
among such a generous display.
WORK HEAVY AT LOCAL POST
Postmaster Newell, and his force of
clerks at the local post office are kept
busy these days, each incoming train
brings a larger mail than that brought
by the one preceding. The receipts last
week at the money order window bid
fair if continued for a short time to
raise the Mesa post office to a second
class office. AH that Is needed Is that
Uie receipts be a little heavier and
these are fast being realized.
A temporary wind break has been
installed over the tops of the boxes and
fastened to the wire screen. No one
knows whence came the ingenious idea
so simple, but effective.
AN INSTRUCTIVE LECTURE LAST

Bunyon, at the Methodist church yes-
terday evening, the latter part of his
lecture he devoted to a talk on Bun

gress." The slides, some thirty-five of
which Mr. Hawley used during the
evening were. Intensely interesting, be
ing reproductions of old wood cuts ta
ken from one of the first copies of the
work printed. The description will be
finished in a second talk to be given
next Sunday evening. When about the
same number of stereopticon slides of
the same origon as those used last
evening, will be used.
SATURDAY'S WORK COUNTS
Last Saturday as one of the heavy
scoring days for the two industrious
Contestants In The Republican's schol
arship contest from this place, and
several new subscribers were also add
ed to the large list here. Both IMss
Guthrie and Walter Tway think that
the offer of a Christmas turkey for the
most subscribers enrolled by a contes
tant during this race. Is a good one and
would! not only make a great change in
scoring, but would be a most accept
able Christmas present. This week the
Mesa hustlers intend to make things
hum In the scoring line, and as they
have a number of enthusiastic friends
who are backing them in their efforts
to win two of these spiendid scholar
ships, they are confident of having the
pleasure of seeing their names climb
up the list before the Close.
Owing to the unfavorable weather
conditions which prevailed In this sec
tion during the greater part of last
week they were some what handicapped
but nevertheless they did creditable
work, and did not let this Interfere with
their efforts. A they are now on the
home stretch their interest and determ
ination to come out as near the top of
the long list as possible, increases from
day to day, and they are very hopeful
of good results.

yesterday was larger than it has been 'J

TRUST IN GOD
The Sermon of Rev. A. S. Hawtey of
the Methodist Church.
The morning subject at the Metho
dist church yesterday was "Trust In
God." The pastor. Rev. A. L. Hawley.
"That thero is a God and believe no
thoughtful man denies. The great uni
verse declares Him In the glorv of the
stars, and the multitudinous unfolding
of life on our earth.
"The fast that men understand1 the
universe sufficiently well to construct
a science concerning its varied work
ings. Is evidence that It Is the unfold
ing of a plan; and a plan can only be
constructed by Intelligence, There can
be no science based on chance happen
ings. There must be some grand, all-
enveloping plan Into which the seem
ing contrasts can be seen to coalesce
and form a part,' before a classification
hence a science, becomes possible.
"Mind only understands mind, and
finite mind understands nothing else
hence the only national explanation of
the universe is that It is the result of
mind acting on matter causing it to do
the will of intelligence.
Is this God" a God of good or evil?
All our desires are the result of the ex
istence of that which would satisfy
them. The eye became because of
light; the ear because of sound; the
lungs because . of ale; etc. Not one
fails of Its object; and is failure only
to be when it comes to the noblest,
most powerful desire of nil that for
God and life? This life and its de
sires proceeded from God He made It
such as it is by the environing influ
ences. If therefore there is no good
God to love and worship. He Is the
author of arpirations for which there
is no satisfaction, and has forced His
noblest creatures into a life of inevit
able delusions. This is the alternative.
Either God is the best of beings, or He
has perpetrated a gratuitous fraud on
men by endowing them with religious
Instincts and desires. Judgment is not
difficult, as we are simply sked to
believe that God is good; or to contra
dict the primary assertion of our minds
and senses by saying this Is not an
honest world of realities.
If God is good He loves His crea
tures and cares for them it u: incon
ceivable that He would not: so He
must manifest Himself to them In the
very' caretaking. Why should He not
go further and manifest Himself to
them in personal religious experience?
The God Christ revealed satisfies our
hopes, and the experience of millions
dead and living, testifies not only to
His existence; but also to His good
ness. Some may object that experi
ence Is personal, and only completely
convincing to the one who has it. True,
for that is the nature of all experience,
yet nearly all the things we accept as
proven facts are based on the experi
ence of others. How do we know a
rgunshot wound Is painful, that arsenic
poison produces raging thirst, or opium
stupor? Few of us have experienced
jthe8e effects. Do we say those who
have say these things are true, and act
like they were? So millions say, and
have said God exists, in good, and re
veals Himself unto them, and they act
like !t as true, and die like it was true.
With so great a cloud of witnesses tes
tifying to the goodness of God, can we
not trust Him more than we do? Are
we not putting so much stress on a few
detached verses of scripture such as
'be diligent In business' as to feel Jus
tified In giving all our time and
thought to wordly affairs? De -we not
press the adage, 'God helps those who
help themselves" so far as to leave no
rrtom for God's care in our life plans?
Are these the most important things
in life? Does Implicit obedience to
them make a man noble, generous, de
vout, unselfish? If not, I fear we are
making the part stand for the whole
in causing the three little precepts
concerning our business responsibilities
to usurp in our lives the place of
Christ's gospel whose great precepts
are 'Love the Lord thy God with all
thy heart and thy neighbor as thy
AT THE BAPTIST CHURCH
Rev. C. Sidney Maddox, pastor of the
Baptist church yesterday took for his
theme "The Need of Christ," preaching
from the text;
"But my God shall supply all your
needs according to His riches in glory
by Christ Jesus." Philippt ans. 4:19.
Mr. Maddox said:
"Was there ever a time when the
world needed Christ more than today?
I believe not, nor do I believe in the
harangue of modern pessimism, for to
believe Christ and his promises I must
concede that the world is growing bet
ter. Two thousand years ago Christ
ascended to the right hand of God the
Father"expectlng. tiil his enemies he
made his foot-stool," and we are two
thousand years nearer to that time. But
still the great crying need is Christ.
The absence of Him is greatly In evi-,
dence. In fact It Is more evident than
his presence In every day life. Men
cry out against God and declare that
they need him not.
A lady sent word to the pastor where
she attended church, that It was all
right for him to talk to her oX socials.
-Mr M I 1 1 M I I I 1 HI 1 I 1 H I III
W4ittttl - lrll'tllllltHrtlliniltllllllr
dinners, but that she desired that he
let her alone about religion and the
church. Not that she did not like the
preacher, O! No! She thought the
preacher was an elegant gentleman, a
fine conversationalist, and a polished
preacher, but it Is the religion, and the
church. Now whose religion is it?
Jesus Christ founded the only true re
ligion and it was against this religion
that she directed her remarks and this
jgood old fashioned religion takes a
I back seat and some fool broad cloth
preacher takes the place In this wom
an's life. The. church, Christ's church,
is a mere pile of brick compared with
society. "How long shall I endure."
This woman .needs Christ above all
things else and there are millions in her
The Sabbath is broken continuously.
The poet lauded smith is heard ham
mering, the carpenter, God bless thee,
Christ was a carpenter, is heard
pounding the live long day. The team
sters whip seems louder, in this Chris
tian land, where men are free and
equal, and with religious privileges
hoped for, for centuries. Is it not time
for the law of the land to save our
Christian Sabbath. The need of Christ
is the thing paramont. If men were
in possession of that great pearl of
great price, they would anxiously wel
come God's day and keep it sacred to
In a recent campaign this conversa
tion took place "Say, who is that man
"Well," says the boss, "he Is a kind
of sissy. You know what I mean, he
is a church going fellow, ha! ha!
"Well none of him for me, you can
count on that. I do not stake my vote
on such hypocrites.
And such Christlessness is defeating
the exaltest purposes of our nation and
breeding crime in our land; murdering
our presidents, assassinating our ener
getic attorneys and! bringing a reign
of terror upon us.
The Need of Christ, yes. How little
the world feels it. Our homes, our
schools, our work, our church, our all,
is in great and sore need of Jesus the
Saviour of the world.
