SONDAY PRAYS FOR CYCLONE A8KS THAT VERITABLE WIND STORM OF SALVATION SHALL SWEEP OVER FAIRFIELD SCORES OTTUMWA Tells of Experience In Local Saloon and Hits City Police—Denies that He Is a Grafter—Calls Man Who Made Charge "Liar." Fairfield, April 6.—"Oh Lord, visit Fairfield with a cyclone of salvation," prayed Sunday last night. "Let a tidal wave of religion sweep up and down the streets of the old town across the public square, through the side streets, along the and Rock Island railroads Oh God, make thyself felt in Thy power and come to Fairfield people. Save the students, the faculty, the su perintendent of schools, the county offi cers, sheriff, clerk, treasurer, auditor, supervisors, recorder, superintendent, attorney surveyor Oh God bless them all, and the city officials from the the ministers, the churches, the Chris- jje paid his respects to everybody from tians, the sick, the afflicted. Convert the unsaved. Lord, give estrength to the traveling men that chance to be here. Help the boys to sell goods out on the road and to withstand the many temptation9 they have to fight. Defeat the devil. 'Guide and bless us, we ask in Jesus' name. Amen." Such was the prayer Billy Sunday poured from his heart at the tabernacle last night, and the multitude before him was reverent, with bowed heads. la spite of the humorous expressions, the slang that seems a second nature Fairfield, he touched. everybody by his sincerity, an^ earnestness, and many of those who were loud in disapproval of the man before he came, are begin ning to see traits in him they cannot help, admiring. "Liar," Says Sunday. women I know in the city of Chicago that try to support a family for three or four dollars a week, all they can earn? I don't blow around much to the newspapers that I do this it's none of their business. Two Ottumwa Incidents. During his sermon he related two In cidents that happened in Ottumwa. "I was in Ottumwa," said he, "and a young man came to me and asked if I would pray for a,_friend of his. I said that I would and the fellow took a- seat near the front. Pretty soon Captain Hutchison, he was head. usher brought down the aisle a young man and showed him the seat right in front of the young man who had made the request of me. The latter at once bowed his head on the seat in front and prayed throughout the meeting.' When the invitation was given, the front young man was the first to pub licly give his heart to God. After the meeting the youth I had talked with came and told me that the converted man was his friend. He said he was so surprised he didn't know what to do. 'Surprised at what I asked, 'weiea't THE OTTUMWA COURIIto you praying for that very thing?' That's the trouble with most Christians they don't put any faith in their pray ers." Scores Police. In his other incident Sunday told of a heart broken Ottumwa mother ask ing him to get to her son to have a talk with him. Sunday said he was informed at the fellow's working place that he was probably at a booze joint. But he declared he would go anywhere to save a soul and he started the rounds to locate the boy. He .was di rected to the nearest one. Entering, iVe- found a big, slit eyed, bull necked well groomed son of perdition with a diamond on his shirt front as bis as a hickory nut. 'Hello, cul,' said the stranger afc I entered, ,'what'U you have, a gin fizz or a cocktail?' You've sized me up wrong, rum my,' I answered. 'What's that you're calling me?' and the brute leered viciously. 'Aw, come out of it,' I rejoined, 'don't I look as if I was over six? You can't scare me. Say, have you seen Will—?' 'No,' he said, 'go ask the corner cop.' mayor down the police, Oh, God, if |'vice I went up to a drunk man holding they have any herei but from What I've loosely to a pillar and asked him if he seen since I've been in Fairfield, I was a Christian. He laughed at my don't think they need any. Blfess them with all the spirit of Thy love. "Show thy mercy, we pray thee, upon everybody In the community, bankers, postmaster, yduths, the aged, those brimming with the joy of ado lesoense and those decripit with many vears~the young men and women, boys and girls. Save the merchants and help them to be honest. Help men to pay their debts, to talk to their neighbors about the love of Jesus Christ. Save the doctors, the law yers, the barbers, the hotel men, the livery stable men, the railroad em ployes, the draymen, the express men, don't miss any, Lord—oh yes, the mall carriers. Come down on them with in thy divine love. "Transform Fairfield. Give grace to to the mother and together we went out to the family home. It was a sad time out there with aged father and mother praying and weeping for the boy. They showed me all the mag nificent property that belonged to the wayward son. That night at the ser first words, but soon sobered down and in the end I led him to the altar, where he knelt before his God. There was a sudden cry, almost a shriek, from the rear of the room, and the woman who had talked to me In the morning came down the aisle and put her arm around her son who had been born anew in Jesus Christ. It was prayer that wrought that." Earnest, conscientions prayer and lots of It, was one of the main themes in last night's discourse. The text was Genesis, xxxii: 28 where is told the story of Jacob's return to meet his brother Esau. Mr. Sunday compared the presents Jacob sent to his brother to appease his wrath to the lives some church members live in the hope that they will stave oft divine judgment ^Is^verVrs teard bef^n L°U S He took another shot at the grafter charge last night. It was called forth by a speech by Rev. Charles Long of Burlington. In it Long repeated a con versation with a man who declared Sunday to be a grafter. "He's a liar" came with startling suddenness from Sunday. After Mr. Long had testified to the lasting qualities of Sunday's converts as he had met them in his church in Burlington. Sunday leaped to his feet and to the front of the plat form like a shot. "A grafter is a man who takes pub lic money for his private use," he said. "In plain words, he is a thlet, and if some of those people don't quit calling me a thief pretty s'oon, I'll land them behind the bars of the peniten tiary. I wish one of them wouldn't say it behind my back, but would have the nerve to step up to my faco and call me a grafter. Ooo! I'd back slide long enough to give him one soak that would stretch him on the sidewalk so that he would be glad to take the count, if I had to pay a fine for it the next minute. Why, if I was working for the money I get, I could earn enough in two months to keep me and my family in comfort for the rest of my life. I'd snarw up the offer of a Chautauqua bureau that has offer ed me $250 a day for forty lectures. What do you think of that? And yet these people say I'm a grafter. Why, if when the collection for me is taken I only get enough to buy my ticket back to Chicago, you won't hear a whimper from me, although I'd lose money, for I have to pay my assistants $500 to help me in this revival. pastor of the church down to the old reprobates who won't pay any atten tion to a revival, handing a bunch to the people who don't live their relig ion and show it by cheeriness, bright- ness and a smile on their face's. "Why," said the preacher, "from the looks of a good many who profess to be followers of God, the devil is the only one offering enjoyment." He told Fairfield people that when he was here last summer he saw at once what was the matter Ayith them. "You look as if you ate: too much and are too contented to sit still while intellectual and all that, but you are too easily satisfied with conditions to try to stop thiis flow to hell of human souls. Get out and preach and live the gospel of Jesus Christ as found in that old book over there. I was advo eating the most extended use of the bible one day when a man who pro fessed to be a minister of the gospel, loo, at that, came to me and said, 'Mr. Sunday don't you know that the consensus of the latest opinions of scholars and philosophers,' and Mr. Sunday mimicked the man of whom he was speaking. "To the devil with the concensus of the latest opinions of scholars and philosophers. It can go Etraight to hell. I'm not preaching that. If God didn't know more than a lot of college 'profs' and other stiffs, I'd have quit preaching long ago. "But lots of people don't follow the bible in their lives. They go to church on Sunday and blindly repeat the creed and the articles of confession, but go out of the church lea ion behind them to live like the devil for the other six days in the week." .WILL CONVENE TUESDAY Keokuk County Court Open—Special Venire of Juroi« Drawn Sigourney, April 6—A special venire of jurors was ordered drawn by the judge for the coming April term of court, which commences here on next Tuesday, and the following names were taken from the jury box: G.
