I told him, "(lod pity you, I don't

Siw. I knew tho family well. Hhe

I know his wife, nnd I said I wna
going to lead the meeting on Sun

And he said, All right."
He came around In the afternoon
and said, "1 can't. I think I will
die. unless I go homo and confess
It, and I am afraid that somobodv
might tell about It and that would
make It worse." ,
Then I snld to a friend of mine.
"Well, you go with him, nnd don't
let your eyes get off him because
he might go out and commit sul

2:30 at night nnd they went up
nnd rang the doorbell. Ills wife
raised the winnow and said, "Who

and finally their llttlo girl, about
two years of ge, had awakened
nnd she heard them tntklnir. As she
stood at thn head of thn stnlrs.

Ho said, tho time would come
when (lod would wipe up thin world
and He'd sepnrato tho good from tho

that Minio thing. We separate the

the criminals from those that wIlU

I never wanted lo bo governor of

Thnt In when Ho banded them' thn
hot curt of the poker. Thnt Is Jenus,
I am quoting Ills words. AthI Jesun
stood beforu the church,' going nut-
ward wero all tho cutllured high
brown of tho day, und he snld thoso
things. That's Jesun 1 urn talking
Now, He never had a harsh word
for a sinner. Ho never hurt a good
ono for a 1'harlseo not a good one,
And It a man claims to be n Chris
tian, ho ought to do what Jesus
If a man puts out n sign, announc
ing himself a carpenter or plumber,
1 expect him to curry on the busi
ness that ho annoiinccH by the sign.
I don't go to a barbershop to get an
automobile. I don't go tu n butcher
shop lo buy n suit of clothes. I
don't go to n Jcuolry shop to get po
tatoes nnd celery no, iilr!
Now, something, therefore, Is ex
pected of a Christian that Isn'.t ex
pected of H godless man. I expect
somothlng moi'a of un elder than 1
do ot a brewer.
For n mnn to be a member of a
church and havo nothing In his Ufa
or conduct which resembles Jesun
Chi 1st In ns much out of place ns n
Y. M. C. A. over brewery, or a'
Y. W. C. A. over ii'houso of III fame.
They aro expected to carry on tho
things that they announce undor tho
Dane-. Out Sign.
That Is tho reason I go to a bar
ber shop to get u haircut, and to n
Jewelry store to get my watch fixed.
A man limign out a sign nnd uyn he
is n Christian. I expect something
und I've got a right to do It.
Another thing -can you find nny
fault with his cournyc? Tliero ls
something nbout his courage -that
wins our applause. It compels our
admiration, and our commendation,
emulation nnd several other "ntlons"
that 1 can't think of Just now.
Did Jesun ever show tho white
tenther? No! Ho! When tho mob
charged upon lllm with clubs and
stqnes nnd tho disciples forsook Him
and fled, llo stood till ground as
Immovablu nn (llbrallur. They spat
upon lllm. They stoned Htm, mid
damned lllm nnd scourged Him.
Ho boro Himself llko n king when
He stood heforo old I'llnte. Not once
did Ho turn pale. Not onco did He
show- concern or fear. Not once.
my friends, can you find any fault
Tho first recorded words ot Jesus
were when no was a years om;
Wist yo not that I must he about
.My Kulhor'a business?" His last
recorded words wvro on tho cross,
"It Is finished."
When Ho hung on the cross. 33
years of ago and In tho twenty-one
years crowded In between the first
recorded words nnd uiu last re
corded words, nothing found place
In His life that wasn't for thn glory
of Ood and tho good -of humnnlty,
"I find no fault In Him," said His
bitter enemy, rotate. If thorn hnrt
been, old I'llnte would have dug It
out, for ho wan looking for a chance
to put somethng over on Him If
he could. Now, "1 find no fault In
Ho hart faith In tils rather. A
man's faith links him to Ood. I am

the cops would get their eyes on
him and tnen ne u nave 10 move on,
for ho had left a record 'behind him
whero ho had donn time. Ho went
straight and lived for Ood for years.
Then bo went to Chicago to ono ot
our great lawyers. I.uther 1-unn
Mills, who Is now aeao. unu no tuiu,
"Will you glvo mo a letter to
Carter Harrison 7" (Ho was tnen
mayor of Chicago.)
The lawyer gave him tho letter
and ho went to tho mayor and wild!
"Yo'u havo my measurements here
In tho pollen department. I am go
ing square. and I'd llko to havo all
thn records you havo got." So they
toro out of tho police records all tho
records that they hud against him.
Then ho went lo my friend Hilly
IMnkerton and said, "Hilly, you have
got my records here and I'd like to
have thcih. Tho pollco department
of Chicago has torn out of tho blot
ter nil ot tholr records. I havo a loi
ter to Carter Harrison,"
Then they wiped out each
scratch of tho pen they had against
him In tho detective bureau. Then
he told them that his picture was
down at tho Jollet penitentiary. So
ho wrote down there to get It. Ho
raid, "You havo got my records
thero nnd I'd llko to have my pie
turn und Hertllllon records from
there. I havo found Jesus Christ
and I nm going straight."
Tho watSlcn wrote back. "You
havo got another guess coming. You
mado tho record, wo didn't. You
may have gotten the tho records
away from tho pollco of Chicago,
but you can't got them uwoy from
tho state of Illinois."
He didn't know what to do so ho
,went to tolling his story to every
body. One tlmn ho went to llattle
Creek. Mich., to tako a rest at tho
sanitarium. Three governors wero'
thore Altgeld, of Illinois; Culbert
son, of Texas; and Johnson ot Mis
sissippi. Ho went to Mr. Altgeld, of Illi
nois, nnd asked him to help him get
the records nwuy from Jollet. When
ho got through, tho governor euld,
"That'B an unusual request. I don't
know whether It could be dono, but
I'd bo glad to help anybody that
wants to do right, If thero in any
thing I cnn do, nut I will muko no
promise. Oivo mo your address."
About ft month later, ho received
a big, fat envelope. Up In tho cor
ner of It said, "Bxccutlvo Mansion,
Springfield, 111." Ho broke It open
and It said, "It giveH mo great pleas
uro to comply with your request, tor
