East Park Branch, No. 14, Is making rtren
uous efforta to Keep In tho lead In the matter
of new membera Initiated each month. At the
last meeting 10 candldatea faced the "goat"
when Commander HoUlngaworth announced in
itiation. The Fratera In thla nrogreaalve branch
iook rorwara to meeting nignt aa mo reu tet
ter date on tho calendar. Lach meeting la in
the nature of a surprise, and the air of mys
tery, the Idea of witnessing something new
each month, brings them out In force. At the
February meeting President Gaston paid tho
branch a surprise visit. He was accompanied
by Superintendent M. W. Mclxcl, of the Phila
delphia district.
President Gaston gave the "boya" ono of hla
heart-to-heart talka, a series of "this la Just
between you and me" remarks that each man
felt were directed to him personally. He con
cluded with a request that each member sign
a pledge to bring In at least one new member
during the year, and In proof of their appre
ciation of Frater Gaston, each man not only
signed the pledge, but gavo his personal aa
aurance that the pledge would be faithfully
kept. Following an address by Superintendent
Melxel, the branch entered on the social part
of the meeting. With Prof, Louis Glroux at
tho piano, they held an Impromptu minstrel
Bhow. Songs Jokes and stories followed In
rapid-fire order, with Frater Tlerno leading
the singing and V. C, Samuel Feldman hold
ing the role of chief end man. Commander
Holllngeworth's efforts to bring the meeting to
a close wero futile. They finally agreed to
permit the meeting to close If Al Maxzel, who
sings like Caruso and looks like Creatore,
would consent one operatlo selection. Frater
Maxzel pleaded to be excused because he had
not brought his music.

The reason for Ihe awakening In Quaker

Sunday Afternoon
and Night
TlinttE follows the text of the for
mal, prepared sermon delivered yes
terday Afternoon and Inst night by
"Billy" Sunday. The evangelist does not
adhere to his sermon. Deviations and
they wero many, picturesque nn'd charac
teristically forcoful aro to be found In
the general account of what took placo
yesterday at tho tabernacle.
"I have chosen a text of which every
man hero this afternoon will believe at
least a part. Soma may say thaji this
emi't be. Somu ntny say, '1 can't be
lieve In Jesus Christ. I can't believe In
tho lllblu. I cnirt believe In eternal life.
Yet, thcte Is not ono among you who
will not agree with at least the first part
of my text,
,"'lt Is appointed to all men once to
die.' You believe that, don't you? You
all agree that 'It Is appointed to all men
otico to tile.' You'll all accept that.
But my next text adds, 'And after
death, tho Judgment'
"If you admit tlio ilrst proposition of
tho text, how can you havo the audacity
to reject tho last part7 By overy rulo
of reason or logic, when you adml' one
part you must admit nil.
"What a chango thoro would bo In your
life If you only accepted all of this text!
Wo havo tlio words of Jesus that all
those who bellovo In Him shall como Into
uvcrlantlng life with lllm and that for
them thcro shall bo no Judgment. We
have this assurance of I'aul that there is
no Judgment for those vvho aro followers
of Christ.
"Whether you're a Christian or not a
Christian, you'll nil be thcro. But I'm
not worried about this Judgmont for my
self. Tho Christian has no need to fear.
Tho Christian will not be thero to bo
Judged, but to rccelvo tho reward for his
righteousness, The sinner will bo Judged.
"I havo prayed thnt thousands of
nonnln Slinll pnme down thoso nlslcs and
givo mo the honor of taking them by the
Iinml In tho namo of Jesus Christ, I am
not concerned for myself, but for you. I
have worked hero ns my own salvation
dopended upon It. I couldn't havo work
ed hnrdor If It had. I am tired, so tired
I sometimes feel thnt I'll fall into bed
and not get up.
"I havo special reasons for choosing
this text this afternoon. It's a personal
question. It raises a question for you.
You must settle it for yourself. You must
cat for youraolf, and you must settle tho
question of accepting Jesus Christ for
yourself. If It wero left to mo to settle
It, every man here would Instantly tako
his stand on tho side of God. But I can't
settlo It for you. Even God Almighty
can't save a eoul against the Individual's
Respects lTonest Doubter
"I pray God that the words of my text
will ring In your ears long after you've
forgotten my face and long after the
tabernaclo has been torn down; when I
havo gone to other states to preach the
word of God, I pray that you'll hear
them abovo the clash of hammers In your
Bhops, abovys tho din of exploding powder
In the mines. I pray that when you
walk the streets the echo of your steps
will cry, -Tho Judgment! the Judgment!
tho Judgment!
"neligton Isn't a matter of feeling or of
emotion. It Isn't doing Just whatever
you want to do. Suppose you worked
for a firm, wero given some orders to
perform, then said: 'I don't want to do
It ' You'd get your walking papers quick
"You say there are hypocrites In tho
church. There aro hypocrites In tho
lodge. There are hypocrites everywhere,
But because some men are hypocrites Is
no reason why you Bhould not do right.
There'll be no hypocrites In heaven, And
If you want to get Into heaven you'd
better get Into the church with a few of
them now. On tho day of Judgment God
will say to the hypocrite, 'Get over on
tho left there, your elevator will be going
down In a few minutes.'
"I havo overy respect for nn honest
doubter. Some men are so constituted
that they are naturally skeptical. Such

copies distributed to tho people on tho

first night Ingersoll had a big audience.
The next night It was smaller, and on
the third night It had dwindled almost
to nothing,
"Every day at nocn, while Ingersoll
was lecturing, Hastings would go to old
Farwell Hall and answer Ingcrsoll's
statements of the night before. Ono
night Ingersoll painted one of those won
derful word pictures for which he was
Justly famous. He was a master of the
uso of words. Men and women would
applaud and cheer and wave their hats
and handkerchiefs, and tho waves of
sound would rise and fall like great
waves of the sea. As two men were go
ing home from Ills lecture one of them
said to the other: 'Bob certainly cleaned

'There's one thing he didn't clean up.
He didn't clean up the religion of my old

In tho garden, It was a new sight for
tho angels. They had seen their brother
angels rebel against God, nnd they had
seen the conflict which followed nnd they
had scon theso rebel angels hurled over
tho battlements of heaven. They had
seen Sennecharlb come up with his men,
and thoy had soon 180,000 Assyrians laid
low by tho sword when tho angel of God
smote them In tho nlghtt They hnd seen
Shadrach, Meshack and Abedhcgo cast

had seen the bravo Daniel hurled into

had seen him como out from that den
of wild beasts nllvc. But never before
had tho angels beheld such a sight ns
when they looked down upon tho gar
den of Gcthscmnno and saw the Son of
God kneeling there, sweating drops of
blood ns ho agonized over man.
In this text thero aro many lesions vnl
uablo to us, and especially valuablo Just
at this stage of tho campaign.
Tho first lesson Is that tho divine cup
Is bitter. It Is bitter to fallen angels
and fallen man, nnd It was bitter to the
falen Christ. Think of tho slchtl Think
'of Jesus staining his garments wltll the
bloody sweat not becauso oc any sin or
fault of his own, for ho was without sin,
not becauso of his anguish ovor man!
Ho didn't sweat those drops of blood
becauso of any physical suffering. It
wasn't because of any fear of death,
for If Jesus Christ had been afraid to
dlo ho would havo been a coward, and
he wasn't a coward, although ho waa
willing to dlo If God said to. I don't
want to dlo; I want to Btay hero as long
as I can, and so did Jesus, but he wasn't
afraid to dlo. No. It was becauso of his
grief for man.
A great martyr Bald as he stood In
tho midst of tho flames that were de
vouring him, "Though you sco the flesh
fall from my bones I absolutely feel no
A Fiery Hell
If you ever had any doubt about a
literal hell, a flery hell where the wloked
must remain forovcr, It would all vanish
as I seo JeBus Christ In Gothsemano,
agonizing because men would not accept
him nnd wero going to hell.
Oh, don't bo careless professors of
Christianity for another minute. Don't
you dare to mako a cold, formal prayer
when you como to address Almtghty
God Don't you dare to regard this cam
paign In a critical and carping way. Oh,
holl must bo nn awful placo when Jesus
was In such agony to think that men
wero going thoro. You're a big fool to
go to hell, but It'll bo your own fault
If you do. God doesn't want you to go
thero, but ho can't stop you. He has
sacrificed hlB son to keep you out of
hell, and what moro could ho do7 I am
doing nil I can to keep you out of hell.
I havo stood her for elx weeks and
preached to you ond I'vo done all that
i couiu, and ir you won't bo saved, all
right go to hell.
When Jesus waa being led out to
bo sacrificed women followed Him and
wept, and He turned to them nnd said,
"Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for
Me, but weep for yourselves and for your
children." For Ho said, "For If they do
theso things in a green tree, what shall
bo done In a dry7" Jesus meant that
they shouldn't weep for Him, but for
thoso who wero about to crucify Him;
Ho meant that thcro was more reason to
weep for them than to weep for Him.
Yes, It was a bitter cup for Jesus.
God pressed it to Hla lips and told Him
to drink. Jesus said, "Isn't thero some
way In which I can avoid this?" But
God said, "No, thoro is no other way,"
and Jesus drank tho cup.
Wo learn still another lesson the
power of prayer.
Every mnn and every woman that
God has used to halt this sin-cursed
world and set It going Godvvard has been
a Christian of prayer. Martin Luthe
arose from his bed and prayed all night,
and when the break of day came ho
called his wife and said to her, "It has
come." History records that on that
very day King Charles granted religious
toleration, a thing for which Luther had
Then wo learn a lesson of the spirit of
deep concern over soul.
The spirit of concern that wo find In
tho Blldj1 puts to shame many who aro In
Philadelphia. Some of you have been
coming to this tabernacle ever since the
meetings wero begun, but you havo sim
ply Bat here. You haven't put forth a
hand to bring nny one to Chtlst. If you
are ono or tneso, you are absolutely v ot th
less so far us God Is concerned, You are
of no uso to Him, and Ho looks on you as
an unprofitable servant. How can you sit
by while souls nro going to hell? What
are you going to say to God about It after
a while?
Go and see an unsaved person die, and
read the obituary notices, and realize that
he died unsaved, and then see what you
think of It!
"Some people may say: "How do I know
how God feels about It? How do I know
whether he la really concerned over sin
ners?" I know It. It would be a sin of
presumption If I did not- It God cared
as little for the souls of men as some
ot you care, not a soul ever would have
been saved.
It Is not possible for the human mind
to havo a greater conception of God than
Is revealed to us In Jesus Christ For a
man to say he loves God and then turn
hla back on Jesus Christ Is an Insult to
the Almighty. You will And In him Just
