S. C. (which Inter preted means Palmer School of Chiropractic) night at the taber nacle yesterday evening and as the horde of students began to wend its way from Davenport it looked like an invading army. The future chiropractic dwtcira. extended in double formation from one end of the government bridge to the other and they numbered not less than 2,000. They were headed by their band of 19 pieces directed by Bob Kerns and George Trimby acted as marshal of the eight. Special seats .vere reserved for the crowd in the tabernacle and everywhere could be seen " white badges op. whicn we-e I. S. C. After the crowd had gotten into the tabernacle, the band took places on the platform and playe'l several selections. George Trimby acted as yell leader and "song di rector and called for selections by the P. S. C.s, and they gave with a vim "Homeland," "Here's to the P. S. C," "So Pack Up Your Troubles" (with emphasis on the So) and "Brighten the Corner." They could make lots of noise and pretty good music, but we dare not say it could equal that of the taber nacle choir. But they had a lot of pep and enthusiasm and gave their yells with the answer "absolutey" with a shout that threatened to raise the xafters. Witticisms Pew back and fort'J about adjustments and Kodey got off a lot of puns and stories about osteopaths, and chiropaths and all the other paths leading to the gravo anyway, so jt didn't make much diflerenre which one you selected. Mr. Sunday, when he took the plat'orni, raid he never remem bered seeing so large a delegation from any one school since lie had conflicted his evangelistic cam paigns, so he would have to give them the banner on attendance. Again the tabernacle was tilled to Its capacity and more. People were again standing around the side walls and the windows and doors were full.

With his fund of illustrations he jctured in vivid terms the de jands that God makes, never Im-3f-ible but often not easy. He ,jt the story of his own conver U.n as a task that was hard at the einning and progressing In Its tiling worked himself into a high itch of excitement, so that at its . lose he eat down exhausted.

Since he left Annapolis ! in the (0s his serv:ce has com prised the customary routine of alternating sea and shore duty.

He took his text from Proverbs 11:13, "He that winneth souls is wise," and pointed out the neces sity of personal effort in tho vine yard of the Lord. Personal work it is the 3train upon which Mr. Sunday constantly plays. He said it's the church's business to save the people. Other people can do the other part. There are other institutions to educate them. That's their business. That's what I do to win people to God. Because if everybody in the nation knew ev erything there is to know, and didn't know God. what would bo the condition ot the people in the community. So 50 weeks ought to be spent in going after the un saved, and two weeks a year talk ing and preaching to the church, and we want soul-winners in the pews and the platform and the cnoir loit. une person can set a church on fire with holy zeal for Jesus Christ, the same as one match can burn a city. And the church of the future must work more for sinners or it will stop; and it must work for all. rich, poor, great, small, learned or illit erate. It is something everybody can do, and God will bless you whether you have got much or lit tle, whether you wear home-spun or silk, whether you ride in an auto or whether you hot-hoof it, whether you have got a servant to wait on you or whether you have to wait on yourself, the Lord can honor you. and will, if you will do His will and help bring somebody to the Lord. There was a time when a preacher was looked upon as a sort of an ecclesiastic locomotive. I and they thought hfs whistling and blowing off steam and cinders was enough to bring the whole bunch to glory. It won't do it! Every body's got to do something to help. Now the majority of Christians never speak a word or do a thing to bring the interests of religion before the mind of the individual. Personal work is the business of every minister and deacon and every member of the church, and you ought to begin at home among your own friends and your own family too. I Preach, Yon Refect.

When you ask an individual, meet the individual and speak wi"h that individual. That's where the groat work is to be done. So many of them do nothing. That's the reason we are not ac complishing more; they are doing nothing at all; they are .lead ones. I think that soul-seeking is be- ir-n-lr " :mhe -e-s o .'3' Inn.- and endless maihinery have crept I in to take from the individual tho respo-sihiiny to do it for God. No wonder, when many of our semin aries minimize, if they do not ig- ' nore this altogether; or when they, do turn out preachers, they are a j lot of two by tour infideis who get i up and spout something, some stuff that they have gotten down there from some Godless old professor. They blight the faith of the peo ple. I blame them for it, and three-fourths of the teachers in our seminaries never had any ex perience in winning anybody for Christ, and the poorest personal worker you ever looked at is a young fellow that's Just graduated from some theological seminary, because he wasn't taught there to do anything for the Lord Almighty ; he was only taught to build a ser mon like you build a house. Some people don't even know where to put the lightning rod on a house. ChnrctTs Opportunity. God Almighty is throwing before the church of this city the greatest opportunity and privilege you ever had to bridge the chasm between the man and the dinner bucket. He thinks you don't give a whoop for him. Show him that he's wrong; that vou're interested in his soul. See w:hat God will do. He will fill your old icehouses chuck full with life, my friends, throbbing human ity, if you will get out and win the men that are to be won, and they are susceptible, but you can't do it through the indifference of the peo ple toward it. And so, whether yon buy or whethar you sell, whether you pray, whether you write, whether you print, whether you teach, whether you are a doctor, whether you are a mother in a home, whether yo-i are a laborer, a'ti alone life's highway you find men j and women that don't know Jesus No matter how much you may have or how little you have, there is somebody you know that isn't Christian. You are the person to win that person to the Lord! There are many professors who think that Job belongs to the min ister. Well, if I thought for one minute that you Imagined that I . ..... . was going to do an tms worK, id patjt my trunk and go home SO 1 quick that it would make your head swim. I didn't ask for the privilege of coming to this city. They begged me to come. They have been ask ing me to come for years. We are here in response to the appeal of the preachers and the church and the people that want to benefit their fellow-men and fellow-women with the gospel of Jesus Christ. That's why we are here! I am here to do my part, and I guess I have been here long enough for you to know that 1 will not shirk it. I will go the limit of my strength every time for God and for the truth. I expect you to do the same. I have got just as much right to expect you to do your best as you have got a right to expect me to do my best. And I will do It, but you must do yonrs. Confession 'ot Knough. And so many think that once they've made a public confession of their faith, then their hope of eternal lire is secure; there s noth ing for them to do. The church members are a tarot for the world. It's not enough to have the love of God in your heart, but that love must express ifself in words and in deeds. What would happen if the farm er left all of his grain in the gran ary and never planted any of it? You'd never have any crop never in tho world. And so, don't leave religion in your heart, but let it work itself out. Teach others if you are go ing to be a benediction and a blessing. You have got to be care ful of your behavior. The Lord's hand is not so short that Ho can not save; neither is His ear so deaf that He cannot hear; but your fins have separated yoii and your God, and get your face away be fore Him and you will not hear. God says, "You cannot serve God and mammon." Just as God haa said, a bird can not fly without win9, you cannot see without eyes, you cannot hear without ears, you cannot breathe without lungs, you cannot serve God and mammon. You cannot be partakers of the table of the Lord Your family will want muffins often and you will enjoy baking them if you use a " V ear-Ever" Aluminum Muffin Pan.
