" SPECIAL SERVICES FOR TWO-WEEKS Will Begin in Methodist Church Tomor row Night New Plan in Evangel ist ie Services Here. Plans for a two-weeks" effort of con structive evangelism in the First Meth odist church have now been completed, and the services are to begin tomorrow evening and continue for four consecu tive evenings of this week and next. Throughout the first week, the pastor, Iiev. C. C. Chayer, will take up construc tively the fundamental appeals of Chris tianity for acceptance, basing these ap peals entirely. upon tbe life-of Jesus. The speaker will -point- Wit in four sermons ue ftir-fold way in which those who are mover to accept '.the Christian appeal may answer it. The plan is entirely new in the;histor of evangelism here, no -attempt ever having been made during spe cial evangelistic services to have Chris tianity presented ir. a systematic . and constructive It represents a new type of evangelism which is rapidly com ing to the front today, in which the persuasion to embrace Christianity comes not so much from the man, but from the message, and in which the ap peal is made not s; much to authority as to reason and conscience. As such, the p'an is one which the leaders of the church feel will commend itself to the minds of thoughtful people who are in terested in knowing xrhat Christianity really means in terms of modern life. The theme which will run through the entire series will be The Call of Jesus: A Four-Fold Appeal and Its Answer. During the first four evenings the theme presented will be The Appeal, according to the following outline; Tuesday, The Appeal of Jesus's Character: Wednes day. The Appeal of Jesus's Teachings; Thursday. The. Ape:il of Jesus's Works; Friday. The Atipeal of Jesus's Nature. The theme of the second week will be. Answering the Appeal, offered according to these headings: Tuesday, The An swer by Surrender; Wednesday, The Answer by Confession ; Thurstlay, The Answer bv Enrollincrt ; Friday, The An swer by Service. The meetings every night are open to all who may be interested in the subject of modern Christianity. Opportunities will be freely furnished for conference with the pastor of the church on relig ious matters, and definite appointments may be 'made either through the pastor or by using the appointment card made for the occasion. Too Many Duplicates. "I'm through with Gloria for the rest of my life," said Charlie as he seated himself in a comfortable chair at the club. "What's the trouble?" asked Jack. "Hasn't she written to you lately?" "Yes. I just received a long letter from her," answered Char'ie with a long face. "Wasn't it as endearing as usual?" asked Jack with a twinkle in his eye. "Yes, just as much as ever," replied Charlie. "Then, for 'Pete's sake, what is the trouble?"', -inquired Jack impatiently. "The letter," mumbled Charlie, "was a carbon copy." New York Sun.

TWO TRUCK LOADS WET GOODS SEIZED Posse of 15 Kaid Five Houses in Mont pelier Two Men and Two Women I'nder Arrest. MONTPELIEU. Jan. 10. -A posst of 15, including sheriffs and police of five towns, swooped down on five houses in this city Saturday night and took away two truck loads of home brew, grappo moonshine and sour wine and one still. The two men and women arrested and released on ."?,'00 bail are Gianco Pacini. Angel Fernandez, Angelina Crozzoli and Jennie Pruno. The raids were made on State's Attorney Charles I!.' Adams's warrants, thw tirst raids he has staged since his apioiiitment a few weeks ago. Preying on Eacli Other. tliarre Times.) Federal Prohibition Director ttraves asserts that rum dealing is on the de crease in Vermont and he bases his claim in part on the' belief that bootleggers and others engaged in the work are be ginning to prey on each other in such a way as to dicourage many from partici pating in the game. It is a novel reason but 'not so far-fetched as it, might seem after one has heard of the various mis placements of liipior consignments via i he underground routes from Canada into Vermont ; liquor bought and paid for is oftentimes never delivered. Trick ery of that sort is calculated to act as a discouragement to some of the persons encaged in the trade, and Federal Pro hibition Director Graves may be right in his viewpoint.

This new type gives them in full measure at little more than the cost of the open models. Is it any wonder the Coach met such instant suc cess? Or that its first welcome has steadily grown? Prior to the Essex -Coach, consider what a buyer could get around $1,400. He had the choice of a closed car without distinction and little performance ability.;.- If he wanted better performance he had no choice at that price except an open car. The Coach now couples the beauty, comfort and lux-, uiy of an unusually fine closed body, with the excep tional reliability and performance of the well proved Essex chassis. But it does not mean greatly added price. . V ? And it continues the savings of its first cost in its., economy of fuel, oil and tires, as well as small cost" of upkeep. , Come see the Coach. You will surely want it. Price is now no bar to owning the fine quality, perform ance and distinction that heretofore cost more than most men wanted to pay. . Jlantey Brothers HQ STREET! BRATTLEBORO.
