Sermon
By Dr. Jar vis
? ^REASONS AND EXCUSES" SUP
fi-. PtlED SUBJECT FOR A PRO
? FOUND DISCOURSE.
W ^VKfeasoiw and Excuses" was the sub
''IMZt'lram which Dr. Jarvis preached
splendid sermon at the Presbyterian
*?8Kurcii last evening. Dr. Jarvis ask
Jett* tiie* congregation to name a num
E?pJS?4fjffc reasons given by unbelievers
:' tS^ not accepting the gospel.
' AiJibhfc the questions gleaned from
^ the.co-ngreBation were the following:
if'Too many hypocrites in the
? chnrch."
gg^Spfft feel like it."
"Haven't got time."
S 1 jr ~ ' - ' ' i
"I have lots of time yet."
"Don't believe in the Deity of
Christ."
Dr. Jarvis then stated that none of
these, with the possible exception of
the last named, could be classed as
reasons, but wore simply excuses or
subterfuges given by unbelievers to
put oft the matter of accepting Christ
as a personal Saviour.
After dwelling on the fact that
there could be no real reasons for
failure to accept Christ, etc., Dr. Jarv
is spoke concerning the divorce evil
and said that If the nation embraced
nation-wide prohibition the. divorce
statistics, as to this great evil, would
bo cut down and America would not
become notorious as a nation having
the greatest number of divorces.
The services under the direction of
Dr. Jarvis grows in interest with each
sorvice and despite the cold weather
the congregations are large. Several
people professed faith in Christ last.

A number of matters ot vital im
portance to the football schedule for
West Virginia Wesleyan for 1915 have
occurred during the last few days. The
most important of these perhaps are
the offers of games with the Univer
sity of Pittsburgh, Washington and
Jefferson. Washington and Lee, Penn
sylvania State College, Marietta, Car
lisle, A. & M. of North Carolina, and
a tentative proposition from the Uni.
versity of Pennsylvania for s game at
Philadelphia. In addition to these ot
fers ot games have come from Gallau
det, Davis-Elkins, Geneva, Westmin
ster and half a scorc of others of the
1914 schedule.
The University of Pittsburgh has of
fered to play Wesleyan at Clarks
burg, a proposition that Is seldom it
ever made by the big Pittsburgh in
stitution. Carlisle has also offered
Wesleyan another game In West Vir
ginia. The Washington and Jeffer
son game is closed, to be played on
November 13 at either Clarksburg or
Wheeling, and it is thought that the
matter of the place for the game Will'
be settled within the next two weeks.
