In his sermon in the revival meet
ing at the First Methodist church last
night. Rev. D. E. Earnhardt, the pas
tor. who is doing the preaching, de
clare that the possession of wealth is

Today It was announced that the
subject for tonight's sermon will be,
"Esau Sells Out.” The sermon at the
morning service at 9.30 a. m. today
»*.< by Rev. R. A. Whitten, pastor
of the First Christian church.
On Tuesday night the pastor preach
ed on "What will it profit a man if
he should gain the whole world and
lose hi* own life?"
"The Christian religion." he said,
"recognizes the importance of business
success. Poverty at times has been
held up as a Christian ideal. It Is a
mistake. God does not want us poor,
hut whether poor or rich he does want
us to be his. It is wrong for a man
to be slothful in business. Every busi
ness ought to be profitable and sue
ccssful. if that business is the kind
that can have God as a partner.
"Gaining Ihr whole world menu:;
gaining the acclaim of the world. It
means listening to the crowds that
civ buzannah one day and crucify him
the next day. Washington haw been
called the city of broken-hearted be
cause the men who have gone there
depending on their constituency to
back them up have come to disap
pointment sooner or later.
"It means gaining the wealth of the
world. It is not wrong to own dirt
hut it is wrong to eat it and sleep on
It and idolize it. A few round dollar.,
will not hurt if you use them on the
square. But men have mortgaged their
poor souls and bodies for trash until
It Is the disgrace of the world.
"Gaining the world means coming
into God’s world at his invitation and
enjoying his meal and never one lime
lifting your head to acknowledge and
thank him. It means riding through
his reservation and blowing for him
to get out of the way. He is not now
getting out of the way and the drivers
that persist in running him down arc

go to heaven than to have my body
entombed with the great and land
my everlasting soul in perdition."
At the morning service t«xiay, Rev.
Tt. A .Whitten, pastor of the Christian
church, preached the sermon. His sub
ject was. "Christian indebtedness." He
said "We are In debt to the men who
are not saved. The necessity of their
welfare is laid upon us. God is calling
ui» to do exploits. We have many en

unsaved world, we must be fearless
and we must be unselfish. If we are

Plot Is Offered
For Free Garden
One Henderson resident yesterday
offered to the American legion Em
ployment Committee a plot of ground
near the city foro use as a free garden
to be tended by those without work.
The suggestion was made by C. S.
Wester, secretary, through the Dally
Dispatch Monday, and results were
obtained promptly. Vegetables pro
duced will be given to needy families.
The committee would like also to have
offers of other garden plots, Mr.

the employee is paid in tickets, which

more. This shcuM appear to those
who do not have a home or place

In this case workers will be employ

been suggested the cemetery and the

much more beautiful and several
other community projects can be
worked out at the discretion of the
