So Says Dr. McCuaig in Lecture
Pefore Crowded
With the exception of one sermon,
which he will preach to-night, in the
Market Street Baptist. Church, yester
rlav closed the McCuaig meetings until
Sunday. For the remainder of this
•week Dr. McCuaig will preaeh and lec
ture in Aiechanicsburg.
There were nearly a thousand at
the meeting yesterday afternoon, when
he spoke on the subject "How Wives
Are Made," every available place in
both the auditorium and the choir
loft of Zlon Lutheran Church being
occupied, and a number who came
went away because they could not find
There were so many who went to
the Fourth Reformed Church last
night to hear the sermon on the
"Great Question" that it was neces
sary to place several rows of chairs
at the rear of the large auditorium.
The sermon dealt with the Resurrec
tion and Dr. McCuaig emphasized the
fact that he great question in the
heart of every human being is, "Shall
I meet those whom I love after death
or does the grave end all?" He pointed
out that the greatest hunger of the
human being is love. That in regard
to every physical hunger, like those of
hunger for food, thirst, oxygen, and in
fact every thing that we have need of,
God has made ample provision, and
he asked. "Would it not seem in
credible that in regard to this great
est and most far-reaching of hun
gers He had provided no answer?"
Clear interpretations of the Scrip
ture were spread before his hearers
and it seemed impossible that anyone
should leave with a mind unsatisfied
as to "The Great Question."
There will be four services at which
Br. McCuaig will speak to the people
of Harrisburg next Sunday. He will
jireach at morning and evening cer
vices and in the afternoon at 3.30 he
wili address a mass meeting of women
in Jiion Lutheran Church on "How
Girls Fall," and at 9 p. m. in the
Fourth Street Church of God there
will be a meeting for men only, when
lie will lecture on "What Education
Docs a Man Need for Marriage?"
Other meetings, among which will
be a 6.15 p. m. course of lectures on
eugenics for employed women, will be
announced later.
