lng at Mrs. J. D. Mathis' on Mon
day afternoon. Much business was I
dispatched and final arrangements
were made for the annual Thanks

plates was abolished and the dinner
which will consist of turkey with
rich dressing and gravy, rice, chick
en salad, potato salad, cranberries,
celery, pickle, bread and coffee will
be placed upon the table in a home- j
like fashion and the guests help)
themselves with the assistance of

prefer. What could be more de
lightful than to entertain a party of j
friends.in your own parlor and then
-repair to the hall for dinner with
no anxiety, no apprehensions about)
the dinner not being served correct
ly and at a cost far less even than
the turkey would be otherwise. At
this meeting Mrs. W. B. Posey was
gladly welcomed as a new member
and Mrs. Eva Miller Jones as a
non resident member gave pleasure
to her friends with her presence.

A Great War Revival.
It will be of great interest to all
Christians to know that the greatest
religious revival is sweeping over
the world to-day which has ever
been experienced. Several weeks
ago we prophesied from the pulpit
that this would be the case in this
country if we, as Americans, could
only smell the smoke. That this
would be the case in Europe was a
well known faot which we deduoed
from the history of the past. Do
you not know that this wave is
sweeping over fashionable France,
skeptical Germany, persecuting Rus
sia, desolate Belgium; that it has
seized England, gone into Scotland
and is making its way across the
sea to this continent? Do you not
know that, in the face of this stu
pendous fact, which we foretold as
a result of this war, by saying that
there would not be room in the
churches for the congregations, that
in this community, as in others,
therj were so-called civilized peo
ple that are still living without God
and without a well grounded hope;
but spending the Sabbath reading
the secular newspaper, and seeking
their own ease and pleasure? That
these atheistic cubs are still defy
ing God with their silent contempt
of bis revealed will by paying no
more attention to religion than they
did months ago? When Gud gets
hold of them, for deliberately clos
ing their eyes to and shutting their
ears against such manifestations,
can any man predict what their fi
nal end will be? Yes, Hell in its
awfulest! Fellow citizens, let me
most affectionately beseech you to
arouse yourselves from such a pro
found sloep. It is high time t;o be
gin to lliink-just a little, when the
'scientist", profoundest philosophers,
noblest statesmen, kings upon their
thrones and peasants in the field,
professed atheist and profane infi
dels, all lay aside every earthly in
terest, assemble in one common
place of worship, not to hear
preaching, hut to sit for hours and
have the w>rd of God read, to fal i
down and pray, to get up and sing,
and spend each hour with the one
thouglit-7-God in their minds. It is
high time for these little intellect
ual pigmies of America to begin to
reflect upon so serious a subject as,
where and how shall I spend eterni
ty? This is no new revelation, how
ever, for if you will read carefully
, in pretty designs,
:ty inches wide.
Damask and Huck
the twenty-sixth chapter' of Leviti
cus, the whole story is right there.:
We thought sure that the war was
coming into this country, and so
predicted, but since. hearing of this
revival, we entertain some hopes of
escape at the present Wish we had'
time and space to give you a better
your imagination. Terrible as. this
war h somehow roan v. Qf^aj; glis
ters felt jubilant at the thought that
God had not forgotten us by leaving
as to die in our sins. Felt jubilant
that the prophesies . (Matthew 24
and many of the old Testament)
were being fulfilled in our day!
Sorry that men bad to perish, but
glal to know that God was still
living. Every man that falls in line
helps to keep the war from tis;
every man that does not, helps to
bring it on us. Only a beast of a
man would be willing to enjoy,
peace without doing a thing to
bring it about. This great day of
blearing has just begun, if we con
tinue to phow our appreciation of
it. Don't you pity the poor fellow
who was to infidel to offer a prayer?
Elad not a prayer been offered, we
believe this whole' world would be
involved by now, and had become
a hell on earth; for it is certain the
God had begun to move among us.
Please do not forget to read care
fully that twenty-sixth chapter of
Leviticus and other portions of the
prophecies and fulfilments of this
and other similar events. The de
sign of this article, dear brother, is
that we might help you to think,
then to pray, to worship. In haste
we close for the present. Look out,
just before a storm comes a calm;
just before an upheaval there ie
stillness. We are aware that, as
Jesus predicted, we have cast some
pearls before swine, but there are
enough sleeping sheep in our com
munity to warrant good results
from such a word spoken in season.

Old-Fashioned Mother Not a
Thank God, some of us have an
old-fashioned mother/ Not a woman
of the period, painted and enameled,
with all her society manners and
6ne dresses, white jeweled hands
that never felt the clasp of baby
fingers, but a dear old-fashioned
mother with a sweet voice, eyes in
to whose clear depths the love light
shone, and brown hair just threaded
with silver lying smooth upon her
faded cheek. The bands worn with
toil, gently guided our sieps in
childhood and smoothed our cheeks
in sickness, ever reaching out to us
in yearning tenderness. Blessed is
the memory of an old-fashioned
mother. It floats to us like the beau
tiful perfume of some wood bios
soms. The music of other voices
may be lost, but the enchanting
memory of ber's will echo in our
soul forever.-Exchange.
