ANDERSON, MAX H. KIRSCHT. COFFEY’S MEAT MARKET \ HAS OPENED AT 57 N. MAIN ST. PLEASANTVILLE, N. J. With a complete line of Choicest Meats of all kinds at the lowest prices. A call is invited and a share of your patronage is solicited. COFFEY’S I MEAT MARKET “Why Men Fail” One of Dr. Ostrom’s Famous Addresses— Great Good Resulting From Meetings. Never lin the history of Pleasantville and vicinity has such a religious awak-^ ening been manifest as that which is sweeping the borough right now as the result of the Ostrom meetings, which be gan Wednesday evening last in Wesley Ohureh and are still tin progress. The massive building is not large enough to accommodate the crowds who would get within the structure to hear the message of salvation as delivered iby the noted evangelist. Tt is a true Christian endeavor in which all kinds of Christians, regardless of creed, have united, and many have been brought to Christ. Dr. Ostrom is an earnest worker, with his whole heart and soul in the cause, an eloquent speaker, and has no difficul ty in securing the rapt attention of his hearers, and in convincing unbelievers of their wrong. The 'Federated choir of more than a hundred voices, with Miss Lillian Davi son in charge and Mr. Allen as leader and Mr. Marsh pianist, sing the gospel songs as they have never before been sung in the borough and the audience heartily joins in. At the Men’s Meeting in Red Men’s Hall on Sunday afternoon the seating capacity was taxed to its utmost and Dr. Ostrom delivered an interesting ad dress upon “Why Men Fail.” Twenty five or more men decided to lead a better life. Owing to limited space it is impossible for The Pleasantville Press to give all of Dr. Ostrom’s discourses, but as the one upon “Why Men Fail” is so strong we present the following from it: “No man starts out to fail; no man desires to fail; yet many do fail. Noah, Abraham, David and Peter, and many others that I could name, are men that have failed. There is a possibility of overcoming all wrong. Many fail in re ligion today, just as they have always failed. Many are affected by the views and influenced bv other men. If I could do away with all treating in this coun try, I would do away with all this harm ful drinking of liquor. If you ever make a success of yourself, you will have to come to the place where you are your self. Every man must give an account of himself. Every man, if he is going to succeed, must come to the place where he will declare he will be right to himself and Ood. A lost man in a snow storm, followed the marks of snowshoes of an other, only to find in the end, that the other man also was lost. There is many a lost man who is leading hundreds of others astray. If you want to make a success, disentangle yourself from every thing and influence that is not right. “Another reason why we fail is that we analyze things too far. From an apple comes the stem, the peeling, the seeds, the cider and the pulp, but should you put these different piles before a man and ask hi.m to eat one of them, he wouldn’t. He must take the whole apple, not when pulled apart. So with religion. One can analyze it until he is confused. “Another reason men fail is because of their fear for the treachery of the future. Multitudes are discouraged be cause they have once made an attempt at religion and failed. The reasonable thing to do is to keep at it until you find a way to success, then adhere to it, whatever the cost. No man who moves with earnest purpose toward God will ever regret it. If you say "God is true’ and do right to yourself and Him, you will defeat your strongest tendencies of failure. "No man ever came to God for for giveness and was turned back without it. If we come to Him scarlet in crime, when we say from our heart that we want forgiveness we have it within two minutes. “Another reason man fails is because of partial truth. "Do not always consider your mother wrong when you see something in a magazine that contradicts a statement she made. The magazine items are writ ten by someone at so much for so many words. If you want the truth look in the magazine that contains enough am munition to knock down all of hell—the Bible. Look the way of the cross, the way millions have seen and gone. When a man says he’s too busy to attend to religion, he has either acquired too much business or is cheating himself. The be ing good should be a part of his busi ness.” While the men’s meeting was in pro gress the women of the participating churches were holding a mass meeting in the Presbyterian Church. An address was made by Rev. H. J. Belting, pastor of Salem M. E. Church. The Evening Service. At the evening service I>r. Ostrom an nounced as his text St. John 9:34: "The}’ answered and said unto him. thou wast altogether born in sin and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.” He said: “The man had been blind. He is able'to see. That is a miracle. He has a wealth of vision. That is riches. He has what he has long desired. That is joy. But he has to contend for what he 'has. If you accomplish anything you will have friends, but you will also make enemies. They will oppose you, they will tell lies about you and you must contend for what you gain. They who despitefully use you, are not nsing fair play, they are using rank prejudice. Thomas Paine wrote a book and called it "The Age of Reason.’ If it were rea son it would save the world. Robert Ingersoll wrote a book and called it ‘Free Thought.’ it too would save the world if it were thought. They were croakers. 'When you accomplish any thing good, look out for the croakers and the thing that makes croakers is prejudice. There are two kinds of prej udice, ignorant and scholarly. “Of these two give me every time the ignorant, untaught kind. When you start in to floor it, it will fall down and give up. When you floor scholarly prej (Concluded on Fifth Page.) —SHOE DEPOT... £6C£8$3£@C&83£@3&& THIS is the time of year when the feet need spec ial attention. They want to be kept warm and dry.
