members are detained in their places
of business on Saturday night but
th"y did splendid work. A large dele
gation of the employes of the tin plat?;
mill attended in a body and occupied'
seats in the center section.
The sermon was up to the usual,
standard and had to deal with shains.
while there are shams in every phase
of life yet the most dangerous "sham" I
js the man who has a sham religion.
"There is a way that se<*meth right ?
unto a man, but the end thereof are
the ways of death." was the text.
From this theme the evangelist drew
many lessons of instruction and warn- i
ing and in eloquent and impressive
terms he urged all to make their call-;
inc and election sure. The appeal was
not without effect and fourteen per-;
sons took their stand for the better!

Miss Straw, th<"- pianist is missed ]
from her place. She is quite ill at her,
apartments at the Hotel Gore and
others have had to take her work. It
i'- ro be hoped that her illness will not
I) - serious and that she may be found
at her place before many days.
Tn part the sermon of last night
"Sunn- Things ihat are not What j
They Seem."
Tex': "There is a way that ssem
eth right uuto a man. but the end
thereof are the ways of death." Prov
erbs 14:12.
A person does not need to be very
ol<l to find out that the world is full
of shams. There sham jewelry,
money, justice, religion and morality.
There is counterfeit in everything.
A'hilt there is counterfeit gold, there
is real gold. While there is counter
feit religion, there is real religion.
While tlier? are things that mock us
with appearance, yet we know that
:hey are as real as God. While there
is a way ihat "seems right" yet there
is a way that i= right. You may be
corfronted with a way that seems
right yet it is wrong. If you choose it
you must take the consequences. You
cannot escape The ' penalty of the
?Ton? course but you can escape
choosing the wrong way. the way that
sfjiiis right but whose end is death.
This text came to me with great
force some years ago in the coast
range of mountains in Southern Cali
fornia. A friend and I started for a
certain place in the range. We had
not been careful to note our direction
in getting to the place. We knew we
had to go by rail so many miles and
then so many miles by stage, ana
change for another conveyance that
would take us to the top of the moun
tain. When we reached the fork of
the road we compared our meager
notes and took the way that seemed
right. But after traveling nearly all
night we discovered that we had made i
a mistake and found that we were 24
miles out of the way. With blistered
feet and tired limbs we had to go back '
the trail. We made our serious mis
,ake when we made our decision at
?he fork of the road. We thought
r'ght but we had to pa> the
n-naltv :or being careless about fcav
cuflicient facts to decide for th
rift way." We failed In getting the
<ac*? wh-cb we might ha*e had. They
Ter? olir* ?o have but we neglected to
Ift^heni I believe that is the secret
of our mistakes in life. We fail to
make the right decisions because we
fail f0 see the Tacts and information
that wiil out us on the side of righ .
If wc wke the right way. we shal
i reap the blessing? of the right *??
jf we clioose the way tnat seem.- right
but i? orotic we shall have to reap. the
? consequeaces of the wrong way. There
lis not a person here who Is on the
i wroi!K war who will not be led into
he right if he will Rive hinr.sell up to
I serious, honest thinking and seek for
I the truth.
Wealth a Mirage.
: There are those to whom the
Uhougnt of laying up wealth se^ms to
'be more important than the s&Uation
I of their souls. 1 have heard men
; ay I owe it to myself and to m>
familv to lav up for" the future. It is
right to get money. It is right to save
I money. But it is wrong to give
up to money getting and shut Chri. -
(out of hi, !?fe- There are many who
I work strive and hoard .and shut
I Jesus' Christ out of t heir plans. On !
I of these days God will s*>- '
Tool, this night thy_ soul shall be re
quired of -bee.-* I know a lot of P
! pie who live in splendor and 'uxt-ry.
They have pleasures in Pl?n^ ?
have the envy of some and the admi
ration of others but they are P?*> ng
-h" foo' in the sight of Ood. Men
may have * food rating^ in Dur.and
Bradstreet :ind be regarded as A No.
I in all their dealings but if they re
gard the getting of wealth to be more
important than the saving <>f.th?,r
^oul. they are playing the fool in the
sight of God. I was in a tome of i
man of wealth in the West. He had
! riven himself up to the making of
mon<"'. His efforts were rewarded. He
could" count his properties on e\ery
I hand. He had no use for Jesus Chri.t.
'One tiav he took some of his close
'friends'out in his machine to show
ithem his farms and properties. When
he arrived at his home, very tonfi
Identially he said to his lriends.
I have given myself up to making a
| fortune. I have my heart set on a mii
| lion. I expect to be worth that
'the next ten years." While lie was
! talking about his plans and ambitions
, to be rich he groaned and staggered
ho his feet and said. "I am very ill.
Telegraph for my wife to coine
hom?." Before she arrived he was
I gone. He left her a lot of money hut
| the fact that h? had died_.without
Christ shattered her m'.nd. There are
| m?n who are not rich and they never
'will be rich but they are cursed with
[the spirit of covetousness and avarice.
Greed ha* dried up all the beautiful
elements of their nature. W hat shall
,lt profit a man? Nothing. It is a .
Ithat seemeth right unto man but tne.
ends thereof are death.
Calling Kvil Good.
! it mav seem right to call evil good
and good evil. It has always been
so It was so in the days of tne
prophets and when men made evil
good and good evil. It is true todays
There are those who defend evil and
are serious about it. It is because they
are blind to truth and facts. Ignoranc
of spiritual truth has blinded and be
wildered tbem. There are people *o
blind to the gospel of Christ, to the
church, that they tum away with
hatred and prejudice and choose wi.-k
edness and folly and death. Th<^>
spurn innocence and take P?'*on
They flee from that which would bless ;
and* save them, and gather to them
selves that which will damn them for
ever. The Bible says. " Fools make a
mock of sin and the wicked shall not
go unpunished." You must remember
this. While others are loving and serv
ing Christ and endeavoring to please
Him and vou are doing as you please,
living in "sin and trampling the love
of God under your feet, that you have
not had your final day of settlement.
The time will come when God w ill se<.
tle with you. Whether you are living j
in sin with your eye open to your sin
ful course, or whether you are blinded
and living under a uelusion of th*
devil that has made you believe that
evil is good and good is evil, you win
have your settlement and take the
consequences of the way that leads ?.o
eternal death.
Hiding Behind Others Inconsistencies
It may seem right for some of you
to refuse Christ as your Savior be
cause of the inconsistency of others.
People have said to me referring to
certain things done by professing
Christians. "Well, if that is Christi
anity. I do not want it." They know
that Christianity is not that. They
know Christ do^s not approve of it.
Thev know that his principles aud
teachings are not that. Men have said
to me. "It you call that person a
Christian. I want to be out of the
whole business." He know? that per
sons conduct is wrong, inexcusable
and indefensible. He knows that men
of all types would condemn his action.
H** knows that no Christian would de
fend him. He knows that Christ is not j
to blame. Christ does not stand for j
it. Christ is grieved when his follow
ers do wrong. I am not here to defend
hypocrites or excuse the wrong in
anybody. But you may be calling son>"
people hypocrites who are not that.
They are not trying to appear one
thing and live another. You may be
stumbling over some people's sins and
shortcomings. He is not a hypocrite-j
He is not a pretender. It is his sin. his
wrong and it is his to be repented of.
but you can not call him. perhaps, a
hypocrite. But suppose he is. There
was a hypocrite among the twelve j
apostles, who walked with Christ? ,
They were in the early church ioo
have been there ever since. But that
fact does not strengthen your r*se'
You know Christ is true and he has
followers who are genuine and hi*,
teaching are true and If you let 7*'ealc" ,
ne?s of the members of the church
keep vou away from the blessings of I
salvation you are an object or P'-_
Vou are not to be condemned so mucn j
as 10 be pitied lor your shallowness
and weakness.
Morality "Will not Save.
It may set-ni lo some of you that
your morality is all that you need for
your salvation. I believe in morality.
It is the best thins a man can have
outside of Christ but it has no prom-,
lse for the future. For one to cling lo
his goodness would be like a mac
holding to a chain of a thousand links
out one Is of cla;>. They all might as
well be made of that. Morality is good
but it does not go far enough. People1
have said to me "Do not worry about
me, I am doing the best I can." That
is not true. Not one of you -without
Christ would dare to say that. You
would not dare to make that claim in
your loyality to the church, or the Bi
ble. or prayer, or unselfishness nor
towards your sins nor to Jesus
Christ. You are not doing the best
you can. eien as a moral person and
there stares you in the face?you have
robbed Jesus Christ of your love and
your service. For you to say I am do
ing tee best I can. and reject Jesus
Christ, your talk is cant and balder
Uush. If you were asked to love a
hateful, vile and sinful character or
you would be lost then you would
have some excuse for not becoming a
Christian but you are asked to love
and obey Jesus, the chiefest anions,
ten thousand and the one altogether
It may seem to some of you that
one time is as good as another in de
ciding for Christ. Men have said to
me. "J see no need of being in a hurry
about settling "this question." One
time is as good as another." But th^
person who says that is a trifier and a
superiicial thinker. If I should bana
age my eye and keep it so for a few
months I would lose the sight of it.
if I would bandage my arm and hand
: it in a sling^n a few months my arm
would wither and become helpless. If
I should stop my ears in a few months
I would lose my hearing. These would
become helpless and wither from dis
use. You say you can decide for
Christ any time and one time is as
good as another. Just as your band
aired eye will lose its sight, your arm
will wither, your hearing is lost
through disuse, so your capability to
know God ana to decide for Christ
will shrivel and lop ofT if you resist it.
It" you resist your conscience in urg
ing you to decision for Christ you ar<>
guilty of strangulating the power that
enables you to do the right.
I do nor need to warn some of you
against infidelity, impurity, gambling
and debauchery, but against the fool
hardiness of delay. You say "I never
expect to die without Christ." No.
Neither did the people in hell tonight.
There are man in beli who were regu
lar attendants upon the services of
the church. They were more faithful
to the church than you. They heard
stirring sermons. They passed
through many a revival that made
them tremble. They said to ministers
and good people. "I expect to be saved
some time." but they are in hell
where they can think but where they
cannot repent. Others will go to hell
before you go who are flattering
themselves as you are doing. I shall
decide soon. r>ut they will not. Hell
will swallow them up with all their
good intentions. This Word mates no
compromise with you. It is now. Now
is the accepted time. It is the day of ]

May Come to the United Sttates
as a Result of the War in
place in the field at international tt-i
nance may come to the 1 nited State.-.
a* a consequence of the Kuropeaii;
war, W. P. O. Harding, member oi|
the federal reserve board, today told
' the American Academy of Political
and Social Science in session here.
To obtain that pre-eminence in in
! ternational finance, how ever. Mr. j
Hurding warned his hearers that the:
I'nited States must resist any ten
dency toward inflation and a wild tern-,
porary boom, such a? history has.
ehown frequently _?pllows the con-,
elusion of great wars. He declared
that ilie nation now was in a com?* (
manding position as the cniy ?rcaj
world power not involved in war. and
pointed to the fact lhat the trade bal-,
a nee has been in favor of the Iniud
State to ihe amount of $71J*.000.000 for
the last nine months. This balance
he predicted might reach
by the end of l9i-?.
"We should not forget." said -Vr.
Harding. ""that although we havel
passed through no pronounced ooom;
period since ISO", "here is strong ten
dency today towards inflation m this
country as wel las in Europe, where
inflation is a necessary result of war
financing. Restoration or peace will
necessarily bring about many read
justments. I>en:and for war material
will cease, and in its place will spring
up a demand for the commodities of
ordinal y trade and particularly for
those materials used in constructive
work and repairs.
?Great Britain, Germany nnd
France will use every effort to recover
lost trade and will endeavor to avail
themselves of American markets: our
margin of exports over imports wi,!
shrink, and as war debts are premaii
entlv funded, securities will doub
Hsss" be sold by citizens of countries
lately at war 10 enable t'nrm to sub-,
scribe to their national loans. The
volume of those sales will be governed
aanlv bv security prices and by trade,
balances and the effect upon our
xnonev market -will depend upon The'
provision we have made in advance to.
effect or to finance these purchases.
""While we now have in operation a
sound currency and banking system.,
we must not permit ourselves to be
lulled into a
or to feel that we have a 1.cense to;
disregard well established princ.p.t
We must-be conservative, we must re-j
sist a tendency toward inflation and.
we may be sure that by preventing a
wild temporary boom which would
certainlv result in a collapse late. on.
this country will he in a far better
position to reap throughout a lone
series of years to coi<1 the benefits
which would accrue to it as The only
great world power not engaged in the
war. By adhering to this course, by
resisting the not unnatural desire to
set rick quickly, by exercising pat
ience and seif control and by adopt
ing a policy of wise statesmanship in
husbanding our resources and apply
ing them only in directions which will
tend toward# bringing the best ulti
mate results, not to the individ ual but
;o the nation as a whole, our position
upon The re-establishment of poace
will be far stronger than it was before
the war began. We shall be able there- ?
by to held anato follow up advantages
gained. and shall reach ultimate
ly not second or third, but first place
in the field of international finance "
Mi Harding ?*id lhat at the out
break of the war it was estimated
that Europe held American securities
valued at not less than S6.000.000.000
and that since that time H has dis
posed of possibly 2.000.000 shares of
American stocks and American bonds
valued at 5300.000.00i>.
Summing up recent development =.
he said the entrance of national banks
into the field of banker's acceptance,
the opening of branches in the Pan
ama canal zone ani in South Amer
ica and the forthcoming Pan-Ameri- j
can financial conference all would,
have influence in building up Amer
ican trade with the world and in help
ing to raise the financial rank of the;
nation. ?
