The sermon delivered by one of the
Chautauqua men on Sunday evening,
at Rebersburg, was very well render- |
ed and instructive.
“Great Men, or How to Become
Great.” Some people think they are |
great when they wear better clothes |
than others. Some because they have |
plenty of money. Some because they |
hold good positions. But the sermon |
of the evening was to the effect that
greatness consists of serving and not |
being served. This example was man- |
ifest in the washing of the disciples |
feet by our Lord and Master. He has |
commanded us to do likewise. The |
speaker of the evening emphasized .
the necessity of taking care of the |
children and we think in this matter |
so many people take pride. Children |
are looked upon with pride and as |
they grow older in years less atten- |!
tion is paid them and about the time |
they come to the point in their lives |
where they look for their hopes and |
ambitions to bear fruit and bring
them the joy that they need, some dir- |
ty, low-lived scoundrel will bring his
satanic majesty into play and blight |
and darken their path. Jesus said |
that “it were better that a millstone
were hanged about his neck and he |
had been drowned in the midst of the
sea.” How many homes are made
cheerless, and unhappy because of
some of these conditions. Henry Ford
on commenting on this subject is said
to have made the following statement:
“Many a person has become an out-
law and a criminal because he was
given no chance in life.” He further
stated that “if he were given the men
in Sing Sing prison, he would take
them into his factory, treat them
right, show them that he was inter-
ested in them and he would make men
out of them.”
His subject was, |
about by thorns.
America is great and grand, but the
The name or reputation of being a |

Mother country, she was sober, stead-
fast and reliable, but her recent pro-
geny evidently lack the firmness and
wisdom that adorned their ancient
progenitors. The aged oak and the
tender sapling can both endure the
storm, but the permanence of the one
is far more inviting as a refuge than
the yielding vibration of the other.
