MEETING GAINING
STRENGTH AT
EVERY SERVICE
The Sunday Afternoon's
Service Was The
Crowning Effort
The Tabernacle meeting l- gaming
strength at every service. The build
ing has nut been filled to nyriti but;
the services hare been niß>aaUf >tir 1
ring and a fine spirit ha> prevailed
from the beginning.
The choir has iiti eloped ictt. a real,
one and its members sing with a -pin* j
of earnestness that e very inspiring I
and lends great assistance to l>« j
preacher.
The Sunday afterncosj jwiitt was!
• perhaps the crow ring effort so far. I
because it so closely tcnched the
, things of life that cone daily before
Us.
The base of the discourse was I ila ■
i from the story of Sump»«m at Gen.:
wh*n he fell a victim to the lov* of j
Delilah. The text was applies to the!
everyday fellow who walk- ihe streets
s* a professor of Christianity u«i at ?
the ■anv time pursue- the heathen j
practices of life, just as Samptson let J
the love of a wicked woman com ■ is- j
to his life and steal hit power
Samp on just like the fellow- of to- i
day had respect for God and hoc.? red |
Him by maintaining ami withholding
i the source of his great physical pow
er from the Phitlistian* for a while.
I tut the love for DrliL grew am! j
finally became m stner (Tial b il
lo»«l her to cut off hi- hair. He liM
ebout it once, then he lied again, but
after a while his lw« wer- fnuJ to
be so worthless ( ir»' to The
woman's vanity, he co«rhki»! to try
the truth and then it was that te was
so weakened by his fellies that he lost
his physical power. HLs lies »■»! di-
, obedience had loot him his self respect
and the favor of God.
After he~had lost his strength whirl
lay in his hair, it was easy for the
PtiUutm hoots to charge upoa him
end pluck his eyes out. So it is with
all men, it is pre*ty easy for z person
to ao blind himself by dijohedx nee
that he is incapable of doing th- work
of the Master.
The sadest part of the whole k»-
-on was the picture of the diteased
man dying, when fever, pain and
anguish were the only thing-* left of
a misspent life. When they ctww and
tortu* it until life olh out ami
casts the soul from a diseased Mi
into sm ur.lighted eternity.
Sunday Evemmg'. Si.mau
The topic for Sunday erraae't ser
mon was. "The Waiuhrntf Bird."* It
was taken from the Bth chapter of
Jeremiah. "Yea. the stork in the
Heavens knowrfh her appointed
time-" >•
When Israel had gone astray a»l
Jeremiah went to God to int-reede for
its people. God would not allow him
to plead for l-rael but He tsU Jer
emiah to go down to the pottery and
watch the potter for awhile There
God told Jeremiah that Israel bad
been broken as the vessels had beet
broken in the potter's hands ~Rv*.~
he said, "He would gather up the
fragraments and mak- a coarser w*-
ael of the whole but he rsul t bd
mold in the beautiful patter* thai it
had been, ami it could not he ued for
as large a service."
Then after teaching Jeremiah this
lesson, God directed km to ua«el
which Jeremiah did, aad he traveled
over hills and valleys aad finally came
to a piece filled with beautiful birds
Jrremiai. observed aad watched these
birds and he saw that lV>rr wa» a
leader of the fiock who romied imto
the Heavens keeping «* eyes aad
ears looking and Itrfnar aad when
no danger was found it gave a signal
tr the other birds. They wene up al
so. cautious as the leader, aad ihea
i they started off ia a perfect foimilm
to the Northland, where they wool j
raise their young and enjoy the hies
sings of thet dme.
The thumght sUmk Jerrmaah that
the buds obeyed the pes feet law off
their kind and knew thew ippiuHl
time, but another caaae, "Bd my pea
pie know aot the ji %■!■« mi th;
Lord." From this teat the B»»i hit
illustrated the return of the fiock of
birds to the SomthfeEd whew they
would mil the kink «m li ami long
nights of the North.
The call of Jesms aata mm. when
He said, "Come mute Me and I wfll
give yam rest," in the some law of
safety for man that the cd of God
to the birds is them, aad M mm ac

Mr. Grimes, accompanied by his I

WINTER COVER
CHOPS IMPORTANT
TO THE FARMER
It is practically impossible for thr*
Miu.ll farmer to even a reason
able profit from farming without
trrow>ng winter cover crops for soil
impn-venieiit and winter grazing. Pos
-s'dy tin most important item in this
(•-niter 1 ion is the present price of
f>il. IVrhap you have plenty of
f-*d to take care of your stock dur
ing the coming season. Even if you
have, by growing a cover crop, you
issi i-avt part of your feed and sell
it. If vou hi'ven't plenty of feed, a|
K-»er crop will make the feed you
hive last longer and save buying so
much feed next summer. December
c«.rn i> row quoted at $ 1 ..'ifi per bush
el ami doubless it will be much high
er before sp. in«f.
I'hint winter oats, Abruzzi rye or
clover fir soil improvement
; .i«i wir.ter grazing Oats will help
tak- the place of corn. Winter outs
: re much better than spring oats. For
results with oa.ts on thin soils,
broadcast from 100 to 200 pounds of
N:lrate of Soda per Acre when oats
£re from 4 to 6 inches high. Plant
oat.- before (Jet. lf»th if possible.
If your coiton is not too rank or
blown down, you can plant Appier oats
between the rows after the first pick-
Cover the seed with a light har
row and cut the cotton stalks during
1 the winter. Vou can get a good crop of
als this way.
Abruzzi Ky >, planted this month
will be ready for grazing in Novem
ber. Thi. is w.thout doubt the best
' winter grazing crop that can be
' grown in thi.i county. (Abruzzi rye is
' very much better than any of the
other varieties that can lie grown in
! this county.l The earlier it is plant
-1 e«l, the belt, r growth it will furnish.
' Crimson clover is more valuable ar.
l a, soil builder. It is n fine grazing
p crop too bu does not provide much
E crazing until i.pring. The seed or soil
" .-Sould be inoculated before planting.
A cover crop will make a beauty
1 >pot on your farm this winter. The
s land and livestock will pay for the
investment. I will be glad to help
1 vou get your seed, advise you regard
ing the planting, etc. of cover crpps,
