K. of P. The attendance and interest reached high water mark with Tupelo Pythians on last Monday night, and it was good to be there. With possibly a single exception all the officers were in their places promptly at the appointed hour and much important business was dis posed of. The grist of rank work was above the average and that part of the feast of good things was begun by ad vancing Page Lindsey Trice to the Rank of Esquire, and surely the man that fails to be made better by that ritualistic treat mus: be a veritable stick. Esquires Chas. Johnson and S. E. Reed were reported in waiting and following were duly created members of the chivalric degi'fee of Knight. Having had the veil lifted exposing to the vision the beauties of Pythianism, and then in succession "the flint mill” and “the rocky road” these two have stood among their peers and received the welcome always extended a worthy Knight. Other applications are on file and the good work will continue. The next meeting will be of unusual im portance, and every Pythian who fails to be on hand will nave cause to regret it. Business of specially urgent and important character relative to tne dis trict meeting set for Oct. 9th will come before the body, and the presence of every member is desired. Non-Resident Notice.

Goods in the House and Make Their Skidoo. Burglars made a successful raid on the store of the Ballard Drv Goods Company at this place last Saturday night, entrance be ing effected through one of the rear windows in the alley. One of the bars was prized out of the windowsill and bent so as to make a hole large enough to ad mit the body of a large man, and g ft several large and well-filled suit cases through. While it is not known exactly how much was taken, owing to the fact that the company carries such an enormous stock, still the val ue is closely estimated at from $200.00 to $250.00 and consisted largely of the finest men’s and women’s shoes, several suit cas es, men’s clothing, shirts and women’s dress goods. Just what time of night the burglarly took place there is no intimation of knowledge. It is supposed, however, that the perpetrators took advantage of the heavy rain which began falling about mid night and continued uritil about aayurean. me Durgjars eviaent ly were not experts, as shown by the clumsy manner in which they worked on the bars—sever al places being cut about one eighth of an inch deep and aban doned and a new one commenced. The bar was never sawed entire ly in twain, but prized out and bent as stated above. From the selections made it would seem that it was someone well acquainted with the stock. How ever, they made well their “get away,” and left no tracks be hind them, and if not disturbed by the “John Laws,” will have enough to “clothe the whole family” for the coming winter, which is predicted to be' a se vere one. This is more evidence that ev ery county in the State should be supplied with a kennel of good blood hounds, well trained and ready for any emergency. The blood hound is the mortal enemy and terror to the assassin, rapist, burglar and evil doer, and wherever there is a pack of this breed of dogs the atmosphere is not very refreshing and the cli mate is by no means healthy for the criminal. -— The Soul Winner’s Band. , Well, maybe many readers of i the Journal have never heard of such a band. I myself never i heard of it until sometime this 1 year. You all know that after a i revival it is not long till all things j seem to be dropping back intc the same old manner of living, 1 and we seem to have lost much, l and sometimes almost all the re suits of the series of meetings, ’ How to remedy this state o1 Kimball Pianos Kimball Organs j • •• jj Victor Talking Machines jl i Celebrated Records i !i •• j | I Quartetts by Caruso, Abbott,* Homes, Scotti I i I and other High Class Victor Records. 1 II •• I e R; ■s HI (8 V' things is the burning question oi the hour. So the Soul Winner’s Band is intended to bridge this chasm. It is an organization in which Chrirtians are banded to gether in an association, having a president, vice-president, sec retary and treasurer, and work ing largely through committees, and meeting regularly at stated times, and having for its object especially the salvation of the lost. It is a nice and pleasant thing, yea a glorious thing, to be saved ourselves and to have an assurance of it day by day; but it is much more glorious to be the means of saving others; You know Jesus said, "It is more blessed to give than to re ceive,” and we can have a verifi cation of this by relieving the wants of those in distress and want. The blessing that comes to the giver is of a sweeter and higher class than that enjoyed by the one whose necessities are relieved. It has been ascertained that the secret of success is personal contact. If the preacher or teacher makes appeals from the pulpit or the rostrum, and from this appeal alone depend upon results, but little will be accom plished. But when your* and the personal appeal of a friend, or many friends, in the same direc tion you are likely to see good results. So the purpose of the ooui winner s uana is to Keep an organization always ready to work, and a number of men, wo men, boys and girls, consecrated to the service of the Lord and of humanity, anxious to assist the fallen, support the weak and whisper advice into the ears of lost sinners, calling them from sin and folly This organization keeps in touch with the lost by means of committees,and the Band is kept posted by their reports from time to time. A list of those who are unsaved is made and kept by the secretary in his record, and they are visited from time to time by special parties appointed for the purpose, and all who have no church connection are urged to attend the weekly meetings of the Soul Winners. Here at these meetings the members are pres sing home upon sinners the fact that Jesus came to call sinners to repentance and not the right eous. Now, these Bands are in tended to be organized in all the towns and communities through out the length and breadth of the land, and to be kept at work always, winter and summer, all through the year, and never to become discouraged for want of seeing results, leaving that with viod. From this statement you can readily see what may be ac complished in the way of driv ing home the truth to the hearts of the lost. No other thought should interfere with this. This is a union work for all Christians. Let them lose sight of all contro versy and join heart and hand in one long and strong effort to save sinners. As a means oi building up and strengthing the young convert there is nothing more potent. In the meetings held by the Bands are experi enced Christians, ready to give any advice and assistance to young converts, and by this means they are kept in the nar row way, and at the same time trained as workers for God. The great trouble heretofore has been want of persistency ir the Lord’s work. We fall bj the wayside too soon. It musl be rememhered that Satan is al ways going about as a roarinj lion seeking whom he may de stroy. In order to meet him ane his forces we must be on th< watch to win the erring fron their sinful ways. It must b an all year round job. We can’ match and defeat his forces al ways at work by an occasiona spasmodic effort. Proper infoi mation and assistance can be ha for the organization of thes Bands.. You know if a ma wishes to have some special cone 11 munication with another on an BAND MINSTREL GRAND SUCCESS Opera House Packed to Overflow ing and Many Turned Down at the Box Office. That the elder ones are in thor ough accord with the "Kiris” and sanction every move they have mad \ and a**e willing to assist them financially and oth erwise in making the band prop osition a success was fully dem onstrated by the large and en thusiastic frowrl that assent led at the opera house Friday e zo ning to see the "Kids” in min strel, and that the presentation was a howling success from - art to finish and measured up to the expectations of everyone pres ent was fully evidenced by the continued and deafening encores througout the entire entertain ment The program was nicely ar ranged and carried out without a hitch or a flaw, each and ev eryone of the performers pre senting their respective parts with remarkable talent and with much credit to themselves. As a matter of course, some had a shade the best of it, so far as vocal talent and negro di alect is concerned, but the short comings in this respect were so z»aw\ r»l nl xt nAtmv«ArI V-vtt 4 Li a f ol WUI^MVbVlJ » V « b w V v I ented ones that it was scarcely noticeable. Suffice to say, how ever, it was a spanking good show all the way through—the boys did themselves proud and the people of Tupelo are proud of them and their determination tc have a first class band. The orchestra was really grand and put up music of a very high class, a quality that would do credit to larger cities and pro fessionals. How much was realized from the performance over and above expenses, we have not been in formed, but it can be safely said that the boys have a neat little sum iaidaway for “seed,” any way, for all of which they are exceedingly grateful to the pro gressive and public spirited peo ple of the best town in Missis sippi To show their appreciation of the large patronage given them on their benefit performance,an 1 at the earnest solicitation of a large number, they have consen ted to repeat the performance tonight, (Friday, Sept. 27), at the opera house, the proceeds to go to the erection of a Y.M.C.A. building. The program will be changed to a certain extent, and w-»r»*-\tt vi ewxT turns i nfrnrlnnorl that will no doubt make the en tertainment superior to the for mer one.
