FINE SERMON BY
REV; D. ft SLAUGHTER
To ' an appreciative audience, ' Rev.
D. P. Slaughter preached a deep and
profound sermon . last night at the
First Methodist church from the
text, "For what shall it profit a man
if he gain the whole world and lose
his own soul, or what will a man give
in exchange for, his soul?"
The speaker spoke in part as fol
lows: ',.
"Doubtless the question what will
it pay? or what will be the, profit?
has been asked thousands of times by
business men today. . Men oftentimes
in commercial life make losing in
vestments. There isn't any invest
ment from the standpoint of business,
in this life, absolutely safe. The
storm, the past summer, cost the peo
ple mililons of dollars. Just before
the Titanic went dwn, it is related,
a man went into-his room and saw
$300,000 on his t&tTe, but the money
seemed very small - in comparison
with his life.
"Some years ago Willie Outlaw was
kidnapped. Letters, telegrams and
detectives were sent out by the fatheri
to find the bay. Finally he received
an anonymous letter that .if $10,000 j
was left at a certain place the boyi
would be returned.. He complied, andj
the son was restored. The father, on
being asked if the lad was worth the
amount, replied : Yes, a hundred
times that amount.' -
"There are hundreds of men and
women here in our city lost to purity,
lost to righteousness,' lost to God.
"Some people sell out so cheaply,
giving 12 ounces for 16, 34 inches
for a yard. Very little they gain by
dishonesty, but yet the value of their
soul, as they value it.
"Psychologists divide the soul into
three faculties: (1) intellect; (2)
sensibilities; (3) will.
"What .profit would there be when
the souls wing out into eternity cry
ing lost, lost, losC forever?
"Daniel Curry, an early pioneer
preacher, had visions of his standing
before the judgment seat before two
open books the Bible and the book
of the record of his life. As he heard
his name called he felt that he coula
not approach' the' judge, but Christ
stepped up and said, '111 answer for
him. He was . true m the other
world. These scars were put in my
hands and side for him.' Lf you are
ashamed of Christ here, He will ba
ashamed of you before the Father in
heaven."

CENSUS TAKER
MEETS WITH
OPPOSITION
People of Escambia County
Object to Furnishing
Information.
McRAE WRITES TO ,
CHAMBER COMMERCE
Commissioner - Agriculture
Asks Secretary Phillips
to Aid Enumerator.
That the county enumerators, who
are compiling the agricultural statis
tics for 1916, are meeting with much
opposition among the people of Es
cambia county, as well as in other ,
sections of the state, is shown in a
letter to Secretary James F. rhillips,
of the Chamber of Commerce, from
W. A. McRae, state commissioner of
agriculture.
The letter says in part:
'In your county the enumerator, W.
M. J. Scott, is now listing the agri
cultural and industrial census. In
some sections of the county he is
meeting with a great deal of opposi
tion from the manufacturers. He
makes no complaint from the agricul
tural portion, but he says that many
refuse, for various reasons, to submit
any report whatever, and others sim
ply say, lt is none of the state's
business what we are' doing We
just mention this to show the diffi
culty in. the -way of getting the kind
of statistics . mod sought after by
business people from without the
state.
"The above is a quotation from Mr.
Scott's letter, who also quoted from
the party who made the remark. If
you can see Mr. Scott and help him
in any way to get this information,
you will do a service to the state as
well as your county. That you may
understand how these statistics are
taken we are inclosing to you a copy
of the law. It is apparent under tha
circumstances that there should be a
penalty in the law, but as there is not
at present we have to do the best we
can. . The next legislature will be
asked to put a penalty in the law for
refusal to supply the information de
sired.
"You will see by reading the law
that no person's private business is
exposed, that only aggregates are
used, and that there thould not be
any more objection to supplying the
state with this information than there
is in supplying the United States the
same information. ThJ only differ
ence is that the peopk who refuse
these things to the state appear to
think ' that they can do what they
please with the state, while they aro
afraid to refuse to supply the infor
mation to the United States officials.
Instructions Command Secrecy.
The following sections of general
instructions to enumerators are taken
from a copy inclosed in the abovo
letter:
'In gathering the information re
quired to fill out the blank forms sent
you herewith, it must be understood
between the people who are to fur
nish it and yourself, that all matters
or questions pertaining to the busi-1
ness are strictly confidential; that
neither personal or family secrets
will be divulged or exposed to the
public.
-You will, therefore, permit no one)
to scrutinize or investigate - your
work, for any purpose, while in course
of preparation by you, but this does
not refer to persons in your employ.
No employe should be permitted to
make any statement whatever con
cerning it, for publication or other
wise, not even yourself."
rifles it iias been roughly estimated
that the ships would require a dis
placement of probably 38,000 tons as
against 32,000 tons of the four ships
to be built next year.
The first of the larger ships will
not be laid down, in all probability,
before 1018.
