present the library facilities at Shel-1'
by are inadequate. In the first place;
the majority of books are of one
type, the recent novel. Many of these
books have been donated by persons
interested in the library. This ac
counts for" the fact that the books
arc moatlv of one type. Now there is
no objection to the recent novel; ev
ery library shuld have a collection
of the latest fiction.
But every library should also be
provided with a large number of
standard books, books that have
stood the test of time and are still
considered excellent. Our library
needs more books on travel and bio
grapny and of course it needs more
of the so-called standard fictioa.
The second great need of improve
ment is that the library be open more
frequently. At present it is only open
two hours on Tuesday and Saturday
afternoons. The librarian makes
good use of what facilities the library
affords. She has been kind enough to
lend quite a few books to the high
school classes when the high school

mands for books. Her pay is almost
negligible except for the gratifica

The short-comings of the public li
brary have not been set forth in the
nature of a complaint but with the
hope that some steps may be taken
to remove them. The librarian cannot
make the improvement; the board ot
■aldermen .should not be expected to
do all. But these working together
with the various clubs and with the
public-spirited men and women of the
town can provide a library which will
meet all the requirements of a good
public library. The writer hopes that
the new year will bring just such a

“Pray for Old Time Revival,” was
Billy Sunday’s theme at his six week’s
revival in Charlotte this week. He
said, “The churches need a baptism of
the old time religion. There are two
ruts in every church, the ruts and the
anti-ruts. Somebody is scared to death
that somebody will do something out
of the ordinary that will keep a sin
jier out of hell. Some of them would
rather see him go to hell than that
things should be done not decently
and in order. The church is assaulted
by isms and chisms, and there is not
enough religion in them to float their
“I want to say now at the kick-off
that I believe the Bible is the word of
God from cover to cover, so you high
brow mutt preachers know where 1
stand. You can have a revival now if
you will do what God tells you if your
men arc staggering and reeling down
your-street,s if girls are selling their
womanhood, girls hanging round cab
arets, hotels and restaurants, over
perfumed, over jewelled, over fed, and
undressed its your fault. Why a^,nvan
couldn’t look at one of them with
prayer meeting thoughts very long, I
wonder there are as many fellows
keep their decency and their morals as
they do with what is flaunted in their
'faces today. If tho church is degener
ating into a third rate amusement
bureau and reducing religion to form
and ceremony, the trouble isn’t with
God. I plead for an old pentecostal re
vival that will make drunkards sober;
will have thieves honest; will make
men who are keeping somebody on the
side and disgracing their wives and
•children go home and be decent and
which will transform the old God for
saken Whiskey soaked Sabbath
breaking Lord damning harlot ridden
old world into a paradise of peace and
beendiction and blessing.”
The afternoon subject was: “The
Pharisee, and the Publican.” Special
I points were:
iou can’t thank Ood with one
breath and turn around and assassi
nate your neighbor with the next.
“A lot of people go to church and
do no more than gratify their vanity,
to show off their hats and their
clothes, they don’t go to hear any
thing to make them decent, ami if
they did they would not be any dif-»
ferent from what they are so they
join the church with no higher mo
tive than a yegg cracks a safe.
“Every church that I have ever had
anything to do with or have known
about is cursed with a few men and
women who want to run the whole
works, a little bunch of pharisees.”
“It doesn’t do any good to make
war on a skunk with cologne water.”
“And if I find a man that’s drunk
it’s none of my husiness whether it
was hereditary, whether it was the re
sult of his environment, whether it
was the result of his being a fool; it’s
my business to help make him sober.
“Gratitude to God is never coupled
with defamation of His creatures.
“You’ve got Persian rugs and the
candelabra of wealth on your floor of
' your home but your church is good
with a 35 cent ingrain.”
