Ellis who buys everything a farmer has to sell and sells every thing a farmer has to buy. n a p an C II MSI AV t n Religion, Withstanding Cynicism, Has Sur vived Through the Ages. Go to Church. A GREAT number of the people who GO TO CHURCH are men and women with the WISDOM OF YEARS AND EXPERIENCE. Many voung people who seem to RE JOICE WHEN THEY ARE CALLED CYNICS not only fail to GO TO CHURCH, but flippantly refer to the movement. One great writer said, "WHO ARE A LITTLE WISE THE BEST FOOLS BE." Another said, "A LITTLE LEARNING IS A DANGEROUS THING." Churches have survived through the ages. One hates to think what would become of this world without churches and religion. The churches TEACH RIGHT EOUSNESS. And yet there are some voung people who are dis posed to take lightly this splendid GO TO CHURCH movement. Happily they are in the great minority, and it is certain that they will soon be moved by the AWAKENING OF RELIGION over tht land. In many churches in the west preachers report a SPLENDID ATTENDANCE OF YOUNG PEOPLE. THE DAY 18 GONE WHEN IT CAN BE SAID THAT THE CHURCH IS ALL RIGHT fOR OLD WOMEN AND CHILDREN. GO TO ANY OF THE GREAT CITIES IN THE COUNTRY AND NOTE THE REAL BIG MEN, THE MEN YOU'D LIKE TO KNOW, AT DIVINE SERVICE. THEY ARE PROUD TO BE SEEN N CHURCH. NO, INDEED, THE CHURCH IS NOT FOR THE OLD AND THE WEAK. IT 13 FOR THE YOUNG AND STRONG. IT 18 FOR EV ERYBODY, FROM THE HIGHEST TO THE LOWEST. PRESIDENT WILSON HAS EMPHATICALLY GIVEN HIS APPROVAL TO THE GO TO CHURCH MOVEMENT. If you are one of the young men who has been reached by the GO TO CHURCH appeal and now regularly attend church, you are to be commended. But you can do more. You can induce that friend of yours who is inclined to cynicism to join the GO TO CHURCH throng. Argue with him. Plead with him. Show him the right way. If you do this, youH be doubly rewarded. Get him to GO TO CHURCH next Sunday. Get him to GO EVERY SUNDAY. At the Local Churches Presbyterian Church Joseph C. Stuart, Fastor Morning Service 11:00 Evening Service 8:30 Sabbath School 10:00 A.
