The sermon by Rev. Mr. Earnhardt
last night was on the subject, “That
Rock Was Christ."
“Christ.” said the preacher, “is the
Rock that is higher than I. He is
higher in authority. He is authority
on religion. He is a specialist on the
fatherhood of God. He is higher in
stability. Change and decay mark all
Ihe things we handle and see. but the
great Lord of our lives stands be
yond the shadows keeping watch on
the changing tides of tlmp.
“He is higher also in inspiration.
He is the source of our inspiration
and we can come to him with the bur
den of guilt and bereavement and go
away with a singing heart.
“He Is the Rock of offense. We have
overdone the ‘gentle Jesus' Idea. He
is the rock that you dare not fall
against and the mighty boulder that
will grind you to powder in case he
falls on you.
‘He is the great Rock in a weary
land. Wbep we are tired we can lean
on that Rock. When the world gives
way all around my sdul. he then is
all my hope and stay. People need
moral relation; even their religion
has become an adaed burden. Christ
is an eternal Rock for tired souls.
"He is the Rock of Ages cleft for
me. The cleeft in that Rock is for
our safety. If we are not cleansed by
Its life-giving flow, then we will die
in our sins. It is also for our home.
The highest aspiration for man is to
be a blessing and a benediction while
here and to have a home in the -Rock
of Ages hereafter.”

Enjoyable Meeting Friday
Evening Proves of Great
April Fool stunts featured the meet
ing of the Kiwanis club last Friday
night, with "Dutch” Olenn in charge
of the program.
A • letter had been received from
Coach W. D. Payne, of the Hender
son high school Bulldogs baseball
team, complaining that E. G. Shaw
and Horace Robinson had made away
with bats and balls owned by the
team, and charges were Liought
against the two members for expul
sion. A “heated" argument was work
ed up on both sides, and when this
had run for some time it was an
nounced that it was an “April Fool"
stunt, which relieved the tension con
siderably. Because of the time this
stunt took up. there was no time left
for the regular program, which was
abandoned for the evening.
On Thursday J. C. Kittrell, lieute
nant governor of the Kiwanis district
for this section, was a visitor and a
speaker before the Raleigh Kiwanis
club, and had with him a group of
local club members and ladles, in
cluding Alwyn P. Barnes, president of
the Henderson club. Mr. Kittrell ad
dressed the Raleigh club in an in
spirational talk, and complimented
them on the fine showing they have
made in keeping up their membership.
