AT THE TENT.
large Crowds Continue to Flock to
The services at the Baptist tent Sunday
afternoon ami evening were largely at?
tended. The afternoon services were for
men only and a great many were present.
Dr. White's subject was "The Sanctity
of Marriage." He took his text from
the Ten Commandments, bused on these
words, "Thou shalt not commit adul?
tery. " Here the speaker explained the
work of God when be made man and wo?
man in the Garden of Eden and con?
tinued: "Marriage is a divine institution.
Men say it Is a civil contract, but men
should look upon it in all its sacredness.
For no cause should a man permit any?
thing to come between himself and wife.
I know it is hard to do In some cases, but
, if you hud your wife do ?not get along
well it is because ryou do not treat her
with the love and tenderness that you
should. Men have long tongues as well
as women. I venture if you go home and
measure tongues you will find yours the
longest. The most prevalent siu to day
is chat of impurity. The prevalence of
this sin is the cause of my remarks this
evening. You can't keep evil thoughts
out of your mind, but you,can keep from
harboring them. If your life is right
the mind will be right. You must guard
yourself against these things. Christ
gave us the on'y grouud for divorce, and
it is the only legitimate ono. This coun?
try is becoming full of impurity on ac?
count of the loose divorce laws. Any
man who has gotten divorce from his
wife and married another without tho
reason as based in the B'ble is living an
* adultere-. I would not have resting on
my head that which rests upon some of
our legislators. Ono wife is enough for
you fellows. The first thing that leads
to impurity is vile literature.
"Then another is the modern drinking
houses. But then I don't know anything
about them, do I? 'That is what a certain
gentleman in your town thinks. Tho
modern club life has a tendency to keep
a man from his home."
The cougregation at the tent Sunday
night was the largest in the history of
the meeting. Rev. T. J. Shipmnn pro
sided, and Rev. Wm. Lunsford offered the
onening prayer. In opening his remarks,
Dr. White said that the good order that
. has prevailed at these meetings was a
compliment to Roanoke. The text was
Irom the 80?h chapter of Job and the
18th verse. The subject was, "The Sin
Against the Holy Chost." Dr. White
snid that he had rather preach on the
subject of "(Jod so loved the world," but
he thought it his duty to preach from the
text above announced. Among other
things Dr. White said:
"God is omnipotent. He created all
the world and all there Is in it. He has
power to create and poiser to save. Our
God has nil power. God is present with
the Christian whether at home or abroad.
Not only is God present and sees every?
thing, but He knows it as well. God
knows the secrets of your hearts and He
knows you through and through. Re?
member, God knows you and iu the book
of remembrance he has everything re?
corded. Were you to treat your employer
as you have treated Jesus you would have
been turned out of your position. Be?
cause of sin there is wrath. The wnil the
damned is crying out to night from hell,
'Don't come down here.' Hell was not
made for man. It was made for the devil
and his angels. God does not want any
man to go to hell, and the man who uocs
there goes over the body of Jesus. God
has given to men judgment anil reason,
and when you get under the influence of
whiskey you injure that reason. When
our great n en die it is said that the cause
is apoolexy. I call it Mlqourplexy.'
"The point I .want to speak to you
about to night is 'The Sin Against tho
Holy Ghost.' Is this a sin? Yes. What
is that sin:- It iu blaspheming the Holy
Ghost. Let us be careful what we say
about good works. I feel sorry for some
people in Roanoke. 'I don't care what
you Bay about J. L. "White, but I fear
some of you have sealed your doom on
account of what they have salti about this
mating. You people who have promised
to go to work for Jesus and have' failed
to keep that promise, have not only lied
to the people, but to God. .Christ is not
eolng to lorce you into the kingdom.
The best friend we have in the world to?
day is Jesus Christ. Without Him we
can do nothing. Day by day you are
hardening your heart. God pity the dy?
ing men and women in this teut to night.
Don't tempt God to night."
At the close of the servico a large num?
ber came forward and accepted Christ.
Including the two meetings Sunday the
conversions in all were nearly one hun?
THE NIGHT SERVICES.
Last night was the last time Mr. Mal
lory will conduct the song service of the
tent meeting. He will leave for his home
in Macon, Ga., to day. Among those
present were Dr. M. E. Broaddus,of Bris?
tol, who conducted the opening service.
Dr. White read the requests for prayers
and then lead in prayer for the persons
that prayer was requested for. Dr. White
announced that this morning at 10 a. ru.
his subject would be "The Thorn in the
Flesh." Services at 8 p. m. Wednesday
at 10 a. m. services for h-omeu only. Sub?
ject, "Woman's Work in the Kingdom."
Dr. Brnughton said: As this Is the last
service that Brother Mallory will be with
us, I thought you would like to know it,
lor we have all learned to love him and
now I am going to ask Brother B. A.
Jones to lend us in prayer that the bless?
ings of God may rest upon Brother Mal?
lory and his business and his family."
Mr. Jones led in prayer for this purposj.
Text for to night, John 3rd chapter,
verses 5 and 7, "Ye must l>o born again,"
"Except a man be born of water and of
the spirit he can not enter the 'kingdom
"The old corrupt heart must be
changed, this stubborn will must be
brought into harmony with God's will.
God cannot be just anil have fellowship
with unjust men, so before we can hnve
fellowship with God, we must be born
again, cleansed from sin and justified by
Christ. Two impossible things are taught
by those texts. First you cannot enter
heaven without regeneration. Second,
you cannot change your own heart, for.
says the word, you must be born again,
and not only be born again, but boiu of
the spirit and the water.
"Sinner you are dead in trespasses and
in sin and a Head man cannjt do any?
thing, so you must be quickened by the
spirit. Reformation will not do; you may
give up your evil habits and grow better
anil better, but this will not bring you
into the kingdom. The prayers of others
will not regenerate you."
At the conclusion of his sermon he re?
quested all those who would take Christ
as their [Saviour to come forward, and
fourteen persons came forward.
V/HAT THEY ARE DOING.

Mr. Isaac Homer, proprietor of the
Burton House, Burton, W. Va., and one
of the most widely known men in the
State was cured of rheumatism after
three years of suffering. He says: "I have
not sufficient command of language to
convey any idea of what I suffered; my
physicians told me that nothing could be
done for me and my friends were fully
convinced that nothing but death would
relieve me of my suffering./ In June,
1894, Mr. Evans, then salesman for the
Wheeling Drug Company, rocommended
Chamberlain's Pain Balm. At this time
my foot and limb were swollen to more
than double their normal size and it
seemed to me my leg would burst, hut
soon after I began using the Pain Balm
the swelling began to decrease, the pain
to leave, and now I consider that I am
entirely cured." For sale by II. C. Barnes,
"He puts up prescriptions."
