Fifty-five have been added to the
church membership during the past
six days, 45 by conversion. The inter
est is so great that the pastor and'
evangelists have decided to hold Sat
urday night meetings also. - :
,.Last night's meeting was. rather a

The large chorus sang mothers' songs,
a number of special selections. "Moth

"This name mother arouses fond
memories in all your hearts. You know

words in the English tongue, 'mother,

l.ovra of irrnt Men.
The speaker then related very inter
estingly how great men had loved and
honored the woman who gave them
birth. James A. Garfield, when taking
the oath of office, kissed the bible, then
immediately planted a kiss upon his
mother's cheek. Daniel Webster, after
one of his greatest orations, received
a little bunch of his mother's favorite
flowers from a little girl, and he him
self wept like a little child as he re
membered his mother's care and love.
"The highest honor that can come to
any woman," said Rev. Ixckhart, "is
to be a mother." He then made an
appeal to mothers to be worthy of the
holy heritage. He appealed to sons
to be worthy of their mother's love.
The whole sermon was a son's trib
ute of respect to his own mother, whose
name and influence he mentioned'often.
"But there is a name," said the speak
er, "to be honored even above the name
of mother. It is the mother's best
friend Jesus Christ. He it is that has
given woman her queenly position of
love and influence. A man most hon
