EVERYBODY BOOST LOUIS8URG 1 LOU1SBURG NEEDS A WEEKLY ? PAYROLL A. F. JOHNSON, Editor and Manager THE COUNTY, THE STATE, THE UNION SUBSCRIPTION $1.50 Per Year VOLUMN LV, * LOUISBURO, N. C., FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 1926 (12 Pages) ' NUMBER 2 REVIVAL AT THE METHODIST CHURCH Hit. t. L. lillluian Preaching Strong Sermons; Will Continue Through Tuesday Night The revival now going on at the Methodist church is developing much interest. Rev. E. L. Hillman, pastor evangelist, of Red Springs, is preach ing some strong sermons that are being heard and appreciated by large numbers. Mr. Hillman is especially well fitted for this service. He was educated at Millsap College, Emory University and at Edinburgh, Scot land. The regular services are held at 10 a. m and 7: SO p. m. each day. On Friday afternoon at 3:15 and Sat urday afternoon at si:30 special serv ices will be held for children. On Sunday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock a meeting will be held especially for men, and on Tuesday afternoon at 3:30 a special service will be held for the ladies. Two choirs are furnishing excellent music and the meeting will continue through Tuesday, The following are extracts from the sermon on prayer, Tuesday night: Eleventh chapter, first verse. Gos pel according to St. Luke: And it came to pass, that he was praying in a certain place, when he ceaBed, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord teach u8 to pray, as John also taught his disciples. Our theme this evening will be that of a prayer and I would imagine that in the very outset someone may say: it seems you would come to us with ? i.ew theme. We have been hearing tf that all our days. The preachers have preached to us about It and the tiav.ors have taught us about It. It is a:i eld subject. Why bring It up here in a revival meeting? Why bring 1t in line with the theme we had last night?" If we are to have a revival meeting, if it is to be the work of God, we must found this great struc ture on this thing we call prayer. Lo:d teach us to pray as John also taught his disciples. Yes, I am com ing to you with an old subject. It is an old subject, but thank God the finest gifts to the race are old. The worst sins that ever cursed the race are old. You may have some other expressions for them, but the things that count for the most, the things that hurt, the things that kill ?nd destroy are old. I And in the great thing of prayer a thing that Is as old as the race itself. Ever since man came Into the world'he has had a ten dency to pray. I am not going to say we act that way about It. Prayer is just as natural as eating and sleep ing. There is a faculty in your being that if you would give to it the train ing you give to the other natural functions of your body you would commune with God Just as certain as you do any other thing In life It is natural that we pray. If you do no,t believe It, go and listen to the savages, to the barbarians, who have never heard of Christianity; who know nothing about organized reli gion and you will find that that group is incurably religious. Man is a pray ing creature. That poor African woman, who after having heard a christian sermon for her first time she looked one of her comrades in the face and said: "What did I tell you? Didn't I tell you there was a God like that?" There was something In her mind and heart that said there ! was a God. Don't think that man manufactured It. He did not do it. Did man manufacture sleeping, eating and drinking? Not at all. How did he get it? He simply got it because the maker of the universe, the maker of mankind, gave him power. He gave to man the power, the faculty, to be religious and notwithstanding the fact f?. we have a few to the contrary, this race of men would express It self in terms of devotion and com munion with almighty God. God gave it ana SO Dip Wh 0i t, -iu Jhe heart of every person that has ever <SEe on ? "d 1 b?,,eTe t0 ?'ery one wh6 shall come there will be put down deep in the caverns of that being a ?park that will not rest ?until It has found Itself in communion with its ruler Ood csve it. It !? ?f. dlTln.e origin. Everyone of us tonight who has come to that ex Is*?*??*,. ?' knowlu* God knows that that is true. We eee men and womena who are giants in the intellectual world. We watch men as they get training In athletics. We see them as they devel op inphy?lcal being. We Me them with pride and look up to them. We go back and see that they have be come stalwart men and women be cause they have come to It by making everything count for the pushing forward of a physical machine. Some of us question why It Is we do not have great men and women In the christian world; why we do not have great giants in ths religions world that we ought to have. Hare you ev er thought practically and sensibly about ths thlngT I will tellyou who your great men and women In religion l.i Loulsburg tonight It la the man or woman who most devotedly, moat en thusiastically, la staying with Ood In communion and fsllowshlp day by day. Do you wonder why we do not have any sealous church members. No, not when you look at the Uvea of many ohurch members, I do hot.

They believe the I contract can be let on or before April 1, the only condition being that the Franklin county people complete- the fund first- decided upon, namely, $60, , ,000. As only a little more than $10,-' 1000 remains to be secured to com-; plete this fund . of $60,000 necessary j I before the contract tor the building is let, the early letting of, the con- ' tract seems assured. ' The committee-realized that Frank lin county occupies the key position in the Development Program of 'Louis burg College. If the Franklin Coun ty Building is Started tjiis spring, Mr. Richard H. Wright, of Durham has . promised to add $60,000 to the Louis burg College Endowment Fund.
