Wesley Bible Class Christian
Points of Disciple Dis
cussed by Jurist
Before a large crowd. Judge M. S.
Carmichael delivered an interesting ad
dress Sunday to the Wesley Bible class
of the Dexter Avenue Methodist church
Sunday school. Judge Carmichael took .
his text from Paul’s letter to the Phil- |
lipians, and his subject was "The Mark j
of Higher Calling.”
Before the address by Judge Carmi- j
chael, announcement was made by B. j
Hoy Galloway, president of the class,
the appointment of a nominating com
mittee to select officers to serve the
class for the next twelve months. Mr. ;
Galloway has served as president for
the past year, and under his work the j
membership of the class has grown, j
The following were named on the nom- I
inatlng committee: S. K. Pace. Judge }
M. S. Carmichael. JO. H. Smith, A. Banks •
Hoton, Felix P. Clay, W. J. Davis and '
Truman Wilson.
Following the naming of candidates '
by this committee, the election win be
held, and the new officers will assume
charge October J. A special song was
rendered by the choir, under the di
rection of R. W. Watlingtori.
In his address. Judge Carmichael said
|n part:
“Taking for otir subject Paul's letter
to the Phillipians, we find a subject
much too large for one day. We learn 1
again and again how little the faults,
weaknesses and good points of early
Christians differ from those of today
We find St. Paul willing to see good in
the work of workers who were un
friendly toward him; this attitude and
the splendid conduct of this great man
©n all matters prevented any schism
m the church in his day. It is interest
's to find that Paul was grateful to
those who had supported him and com
forted him in his work at Phillippi.
“I wonder how many of us will so i
act toward the ministers who serve us
as to have them, like Paul, so bene- \
fited by our fellowship in the gospel
as to be able to be thankful for every
remembrance of us? Churchmen mike
and break preachers to as great or
greater extent than preachers help or
mar congregations. Nearly every lay
man at times wishes he might be a
preacher, an ambassador of Christ.
“To most of us the opportunity la
present to be helpers in the embassy,
to back up, comfort, and help in ways
without number the ambassador in his
endless duties. All through the lives
of our preachers are dark and bright
spots that mark the contacts with lay
men who helped or hurt them in their
work. What sort of marks do we
"The early Christians needed help,
ountside help, all the While. They,
were weak and foolish, even as we.
Again and again Paul told them where
he procured his help and where theirs
should be had: “I can do all things
through Christ which strengthened
me.’ In conclusion Paul tells the Phll
llppians and us that thpre are no limits
to the helpfulness of Christ which af
ford ‘His riches in glory.’ This four
chapter book challenges you to read it.’*

frig from the Scriptures. Matthew 4.
Prayer was offered by Rev. James M
Graham. Announcements were made j
that the meeting: of the executive com- j
mittee for annual election of officers !
would be held September 9 and that
Congressman- W. B. Oliver would ad- j
dress the class next Sunday.
Judge McCord then addressed the
class, first announcing his decision to
resign his post as their teacher, which,
he said, had been reached after long
deliberation. He said he wants the op
portunity to respond to tlir countless
Invitations to lecture which have piled
up on his desk and he wants to do some
writing about the Christ for those who
know so little about Him. He said:
*‘I feel that I can best serve out yon
der where there is so much suffering
and where there are so many heart
aches: where the poor and the weak I
and the erring are in need of help and j
where the laborers are few.
“I hand back into your keeping the
standard of this class.” he told th*
Big Brothers. “Keep it spotless and
unsullied; i beg of you to remember
the long service of this old church aniJ
carry on.”
Advocates Constant Prnycr
In his message on prayer, he de
clared that the idea among strong and
rugged men that pffcyer is weak and
childish, is a mistaken one and point
ed out the meaning and strength of
prayer. He defined it as an expression
of heart hunger and said its appeal
should b# for something clean and
big and holy and that man should bend I
his own efforts to secure that for
which he prays.
He then quoted again the words of
Paul In regard to prayer and pointed
out their strength and courage and
inspiration. He quoted what he says
he has found to be the two sweetast
prayers of his knowledge: “The Lord’s
Prayer” and “A Prayer" by Max Ehr

Official Notices
PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 30.—Enthu
siasm marked the final reading at
union meetings over the week-end of
the order calling for suspension of an
thracite mining operations tomorrow
at midnight.
The two orders, the second arrang
ing for retention of about 8,000 main
tenance men in the pits to prevent
general deterioration during the idle
ness, were issued in time to reach all
the 325 locals in districts 1, 7 and 0
by yesterday.
All collieries were soon posted with
notices for the special meetings called
for in union procedure. The attend
ance, according to reports filtering
in tonight, was the heaviest some lo
cals had ever known save at district
election time. All the miners were, of
course, informed in advance through
local newspapers of the contents of
the two orders.
Nevertheless the actual reading in
the voice of the union secretary be
came the signal for expressions of
solidarity and outbursts, punctuated
with excited shouts, pleadging a fin
ish fight until all demands were won.
The demands, which the-men made
conditional to renewal of the work
ing contract, were formulated at the
tri-dlstrlct convention at Scranton the
last of June. A ten per cent wage in
crease for 4 5,000 to 50,000 contract
miners, $1 a day additional for day
workers, the check-off, by which com
pany paymasters would take out un

To Seek I.«r»cer Fields
Concluding, he said: “I feel the urge

"Huggins has been waiting for this

asking me all year what the trouble
with the team is. 1 haven’t wanted to
say, but the trouble is with Huggins.
The way I feel now I cannot go on
playing under him. If he is manager
of New York next year, I don’t feel
that I can play under him.”
While Manager Huggins declared
last night that Ruth’s punishment was
due to "general misconduct off the
ball field,” the “Bambino'' seems con
tent in the belief that his belated re
turn to the hotel Saturday morning
was the primary reason for hi3 sus

Will Appeal to I.amlis
Before leaving Ruth declared that
after laying his case before Commis
sioner Landis, he intends to move on
to New York where he will see Col.
Jake Ruppert, owner of the Yankees,
in an effort to have his punishment
set aside.
in past controversies. Ruppert has
staunchly supported Huggins, while
Col. T. L. Huston, then part owner of
the Yankees, sought to depose the
manager and in the end sold his in
terest to Ruppert. Ruth’s salary is
the highest in the history of baseball
and if his punishment stands, he will
be paying at the "rate of about $55 a
minute for being late an hour and a
half Saturday.
Ruth disappeared yesterday Imme
diately after he had been suspended
and all efforts to find him proved fu
tile. Although he declined to state
where he had spent the night, he ap
peared greatly refreshed when he
walked into the Union station, about
half an hour before train time, and
hastily told his story to the few gath
ered around him.
CHICAGO, Aug. 30.—President Ban
Johnson of the American league is
"heartily in accord with the punish
ment meted to Babe Ruth by Manager
Miller Huggins of the New York Yan
kees.” Ruth was fined $5,000 and in
definitely suspended by Huggins yes
"Ruth has the mind of a 15 year old
boy and must be made to understand
where he belongs,” President Johnson
said today. “The American league is
no place for a player who dissipates
and misbehaves. The mntter of dis
ciplining Ruth has been under consid
eration for some time and I am heart
ily in accord with Manager Huggins'
“For a player receiving $52,500 a
year, Ruth ought to have made him
credit on himself, his team and the
game. He has been on probation to
observe training rules and this he has
not done. Misconduct, drinking and
staying out all ni^ht are things that
will* not be tolerated."
The chances are that Ruth will not
play again this .year, the junior cir
cuit head intimated. This is the last
year of Ruth's contract at his present
salary and he is due for a big reduc
tion next year, he said. The presertt
contract was made after Ruth had be
come one of baseball’s greatest draw

Rev. H. V. Carson Prescribes In
gredients of Devotion to
Trinity Congregation
Rev. H. V. Carson in the Trinity
Presbyterian church, used as the sub- j
,1eot of his sermon Sunday morning
j the "Golden Bowls of Prayer," with the
text: "And when he had taken the
book, the four beasts and f/ur and
j twenty elders fell down before the
! lamb, having every one of them harps
and golden vials full of odours, which
are the prayers of saints."
By way of introduction Dr. Carson
referred to the beginning of a new
year’s work with the church, empha
sizing the place of prayer in this
work and pointing out the real worth
of prayer.
In launching into the discussion of
the subject Dr. Carson sought# to prove
from the Scriptures that the prayers
of the saints are not lost.
Dr. Carson also pointed out that
prayer is fragrant to God as shown
by the Old Testament altar or In
cense, the golden bowls and altar
bowls. Dr. Carson stressed the fact
that the true prayer must fcon^Cst of
divinely prescribed ingredients—faith,
penitence and contrition, thanksgiv
ing and submission: and prayer like
wise like incense must be burning in
order for its perfume to rise.
In conclusion Do. Carson stated
that there Is no perfume In our pray
er incense unless they burn with the
fire love kindled at the altar of Je
sus’ sacrifice: and he urged his hear
ers to henceforth make “their prayer
life a garden of sweet perfumed flow
ers whose fragrance will await us,

rious home of Heaven."

This statement was qualified how

This was the first statement Ruth
made in regard to the fine. Previous

about Manager Htiggins, whom he
charged with “passing the buck of the

alleged failure to make a better show

of the policy of Miller Huggins, man

“Anything Miller Huggins says goes

rest assured Huggins would not have

“Evidently, Ruth violated Huggins’

How in the neighborhood bnal
nenn to advertise?
❖ ❖ *
There has recently been a nation
wide campaign in the interest of the
neighborhood stores. Yet how is the
individual merchant—the little shop
keeper, the grocer, the druggist—to ad
vertise his individual establishment?
Most of them do It through person
ality. The merchants know the people
yf the community, and do their best to
please them, and give them the best
service possible.
Honest service,'and intelligent atten
tion to business are good forms of ad
vertising. The butcher who has a
particularly fine shoulder of beef
should tell Mrs. Smith about it—and
Mrs. Smith will believe him, because he
lias proven himself sincere in the past.
Telephone calls are sometimes prof
itable for neighborhood stores, and so
ire circulars, if they are well gotten
up. and well distributed. But it is not
wise for a neighborhood merchant to
idvertise outside his own sales terri
tory; that is, he should not go into
mediums where he must pay for cir
culation that can do him no good.

Lone Burglar Bores Way Into
Store of L. Stearns; S. D.
Stearns Also Suffers
Patiently horing his way through
the floor of the store with a three-inch
bit, a lone robber entered the i
Stearns grocery at the three-mile
branch on Mt. Meigs road early Sun
day morning and escaped with cigar
ettes and other merchandise valued at
about $50.
An hour later an attempt was made
to break open the door of the store
owned by Mr. Stearns' brother, S. D.
Stearns, also on the Mt. Meigs road
but just a mile from Montgomery. Tin
thief apparently was frightened away.
A report of the burglaries was made
to the sheriff'* office and an investi
gation which is expected to result in
in early arrest was begun.
The Stearns brothers, according to
the investigators, believe it was mere
ly a coincident that their stores were
ittacked by burglars less than an
hour apart.
Discovery of the robbery at the L.
Stearns store was made by Mr. Stearns
when he opened the store early Sun
day morning. Footprints revealed that
the thief had made at least three
trips from the store to an automobile
parked in front of it.
The burglar bad bored a hole just
large enough to admit himself. His
task occupied the greater part of an
hour, the investigators reported.
