Matter of FrtnrK
It is good to have a friend, but it is
better to be a friend. The gain of be
ing unselfishly loved and sympathiEed
with and helped and cheered, is not to
be compared with the gain of unself
ishly loving and sympathizing and
with helping and cheering another. No
lad incoming to one's heart from
(without can uplift and enlarge it like
?the expansive force of a generous and
elf-forgetting love outworking from
within. H. Clay Trumbull.
, ' Care of Phone.
The most scrupulous care should be
given the house telephone. House
keepers should remember that both
the transmitter and the receiver will
transmit dirt germs and odors. Un
screw the tops of both and sterilize
thoroughly. Warm water with weak
carbolic acid, or the suds of carbolic
acid soap. What care the public
phones need can readily be imagined.

DO YCU know of anyone
who is old enough to
read, who has not seen that
sign at a railroad crossing?
If everyone has seen it at some
time or other, then why doesn't
the railroad let the c:gn rot
way? Why does the railroad
company continue to keep
those signs at every crossing ?
Maybe you think, Mr. Merchant,
"Most everybody knows my
store, I don't have to advertise."
Your store and your goods reed
more advertising than the rail"
roads need do to warn people
to "Look Out for the Cars."
Nothing is ever completed in the
advertising world.
The Department Stores are
very good example they are
continually advertising and
they are continually doing
good businjss.
If it pays to run a few ads "round
about Christmas tun, it cer
tainly will pay you to run ad
vertisements about all the time.

The Evangelistic Campaign
The Evangelistic Campaign, which be
gan Feb. 8 at the M. E. church conduct
ed by the Evangelistic Trio, Rob't 0.
Lewis and the Aylesworth sisters, is still
in progress. Up to this time there bas
been manifested a very marked interest
in these services and each meeting i3
proving that many .Christian people are
determined to make this campaign one
of the greatest in the quickening of the
church and the salvation of souls that
has ever been held in Morrisville. Nearly
75 have already confessed Christ as their
personal Savior and many Christians are
consecrating themselves anew: and are
finding a clearer understanding of the
Bible truths than they had ever had be

Father, and shame because of this
amazement. Again and again the glo
rious surprises come, that ought not
to surprise us as revealings of God"s
love, and again and again the shame
because of the doubt of God that help
ed to make the blessing somewhat un
expected. Some of us are far more
ready to accept, without wonder, a
sending that we call a trial, than we
are to receive, without amazement, a
gift that more than fulfills a long
cherished desire. But God would have
us' count upon him to do more than we
can ask or think. Our surprise when
we get personal evidence that God is
as good as his word comes from doubts
that really make it harder than It
needs to be for God to fulfill his pur
poses for us and through us. May ev
ery one of us be set free from the
shame of surprise at God's faithful
ness! Sunday School Times.
Seeking a Religion?
In the New Patriotism we are be
ginning to recognize at last that "man
cannot live by bread alone, but by ev
ery word that proceedeth out of the
mouth of God." We realize that it
would not be sufficient to give, by le
gal decree, food and warmth and cer
tain material luxuries to our cold and
starving brothers; that discontent
and oplfish creed are not to be over
come by distribution. Of what sign!-1
ticance, otherwise, were the yearning
which pervades all elements of the na
tion today? Art, literature, science,
music and philosophy have their place
yes, and religion. Are we' not seek
ing for a religion? From "The Mod
ern Quest for a Religion," by Winston
Churchill in the "Century."
Mission School in Persia.
Miss Annie Stockwell, a missionary
in Persia, estimates that there are
now at least 1,000 Moslem boys and
girls attending 'the 13 Christian mis
sion schools in Persia. This, she says,
is twice as many as were attending
these schools five years ago. Of the
number given, 700 are paying tuition.
Queer English Duty.
Americana will be interested to
know that from 1660 it has been cus
tomary to take a duty as one of the
hereditary customs of the crown. In
1660 there was a duty of eight pence
a gallon on all the tea liquor sold In
all coffee houses a great inconveni
ence to tea drinkers, because It was
surveyed only' twice a day by the ex
cise officers, and so could only be

Evangelist Lewis preaches the plain,
straight Gospel with simplicity, yet with
great power. He uses much of the good
old Anglo-Saxon language plain words
to express plain truths, and attacks sociil
evils of the day with intrepidity and de
picts things as he finds and sees them
with a dauntless courage of spirit that is
rather disconcerting to those not ready
for the truth. A noted divine is quoted
as saying that he "did not approve of
the methods of the Salvation Army, but
that God seemed to." God's approval
reduces man's opposition to a minus
Last Friday evening the Boys' and
Girls' Sunshine chorus of about GO voices
occupied the platform and under Mr.
Lewis' direction pulled off some yery
clever stunts, yelU and songs. Every
one was pleased with the children they
will sing again this Friday night. Dou't
miss bearing them.
Last Sunday p. m. Evangelist Lewis
spoke to a large audience of men, taking
for his subject "A Lop-Sided Man " He
said some very plain things and moft
strenuously maintained that a fully sur
rendered life is one of purity of both mind
and body.
Next Sunday at 2:30 p. m. Mr. Lewis
will speak to women and girls over 14
only. A plain straight message; subject,
"Why men go wrong." Every woman
in town should hear this message.
The exceptionally fine playing and
singing at each service by the trio is the
source ol much pleasure and enjoyment
to those that appreciate good liuisie.
You can't afford to miss hearing thej-e
people sing. A traveling man was hesird
to remark ' It was worth a great deal
just to hear Miss Aylesworth play the
Evangelist Lewis will give one of his
strongest messages; subject, "How much
do you weigh?" The subject for Thurs
day night will be "Is there a Hell, if so,
what, where and bow long?" Besure to
hear this message. Friday night the
Sunshine chorus will sing and Mr. Lewis'
subject will be "From Rubbish to Dia
monds" a great message. Saturday
night subject, "la there a personal devil?"
Sunday morning at 10:30 subject, "Are
you full?" Sunday at 2:30 p. m. wo
men only "Why men go wrong."
The date for closing the campaign has
notleen definitely settled upon but other
fields are urging the Evangelists to begin
work with them. The closing service will
be a very-impressive one and the chorus
has begun practice upon music fr this
great "Pink Rose Service," taking its
name from the true story how' Mrs. Iv.
M. Whittemore, a wealthy New York so
ciety woman, by the use of a pink rose,
rescued "Delia," one of the worst char
acters from the sub-cellars of New York
slums. The choir for this service is
dressed in white and wear pink roses.

Congregational Church
Last Sunday morning the pastor spoke
on "The Judgment Day," a large con
gregation listening attentively to the ex
position of this important theme. Mr.
Baker clearly showed that each day is a
Day or Judgment. We can never tell
when the real test is coming, and not al
ways when it has come. If each day
passes inspection under the scrutinizing
eye of Conscience, which is God's senti
nel within, we need have no fear of any
Judgment Day which the future may
bold for us. We are tried and sentence
is passed upon us each day according to
the way we use or abuse the opportuni
ties which Life holds out to us.
Prayer meeting will be held on Thurs
day evening at 7 o'clock.
There will be a Get-t(Vgether of the
