Occasion Planned for Yesterday After
noon Most Successfully Carried
Out—Sixteen Women Oyer MO
Years Old Were Among Audience
Mechanicsburg, Jan. 22.—Yesterday
afternoon was Mothers' Day at the tab
ernacle and much prominence was given
tfhe occasion. The 'committeo of the
day, with the Rev. George Fulton,
chairman, had plauned extensively aud
successfully for the occasion. There
were very many and very handsome
potted plants and many carnations
used iu decorating the tabernacle.
Easy chairs were provided for the aged
and infirm and they were brought from
and returned to their homes in auto
The service of the afternoon was in- i
fymal. Mr. Miller anounced that,!
contrary to the usual custom, the babies j
would not be taken to the nursery, but
mothers should keep their babies with j
them during this service.
The service opened with a song serv
ice by the congregation, conducted by '
Prof. Hohgatt. Prayer was offered by i
the Rev. Mr. Fulton. This was foi- j
lowed by » short talk by Mr. Miller, •
when he said he wanted the mothers;
to get acquainted with each other and j
they should all talk to those near them j
and, if any had their knitting with i
them, thev should knit. Alter a short i
time spent socially, Mr. Miller said he j
wished to ask some questions. First I
j was the native State of the mothers
j present. In response it was learned !
I that the large majority were Penusvl-
I vaniins The following States were
represented: Ohio, Illinois, lowa, Del
aware, New York, Missouri, West Vir
ginia and Indiana. With the announce
ment of the iast named applause that
nearly shook the tabernacle caine from
the evangelistic party and was taken i
up by the congregation. There was one
representative from Denmark aud two :
| from England.
!TIIP next question from Mr. Miller
was the ages of some of the mothers
present. He said he would ask only the i
! ones who were nearest the front, as he i
feared the younger ones farther back I
would not want to tell. Of the moth- j
ers who were asked and told their ages, j
there were sixteen over SO, three So, !
one S8 aud one 31. The two oldest |
were given seats of honor on the plat- I
form, escorted by the ushers and pas
tors, and were presented with flusters
of carnations. A so.o was si!hig by Miss
Cree and a duet bv Miss tree and Prof.
Mr. Miller then gave a short talk !
on "Christianity in the Home.'' He
emphasized the necessity of the moth
er's Christian nurture aud training of!
her children. Following Mr. Miller's
address he requested the old mothers |
to suggest some of the old-, old hymns ,
| they sang when when they were young.
| Among the hymns sung were "Oh,
j When Shall I See .Tesusf" "When 1
j Can Read My Title Clear,"' "The Old
'Time Religion," "A Charge to Keep
II Have,'' "Good News Gone to Cana
an." The pastors led this singing. Re-i
| cision cards were distributed to the
' congregation aud several requests for
; prayer were received. The ser\ ices
i closed with prayer and benediction by
j the Rev. Mr. Re.h.
When the evening serv ice began the
] buildiug was filled, a large number of
I persons standing. An expected dele
: gation from Harrisbnrg failed to ar
' rive, but the members of the G. A R.
and W. R. 0. of Mechanicsburg were
present. A crowd from New Kingston
was in attendance, as well as a large j
party from Shiremanstown.
As usual, the choir sang a number
of selections In response to the query
what hymn they preferred, Shiremans
tow nasked for "Onward, Christian
Soldiers." and Nev; Kingston for
'•Nearer, My God, to Thee." The
I choir s.:lit; these hymns. Tli*n. whil«*
Prof. Hohgatt use.i a -mall i'nited
•State* flag as a baton and three large
; t!;?gs iloated at the rear ot' the choir,
all iu the house rose aud saug in honor
of the veteran:. "The Red. White and
Blue." For a while the electric lights
were out, but the music continued.
Prof. Hohgatt played a trombone solo. 1
The Rev. C. F. Raach offered an earn
■ est prayer. Prof. Hohgatt saug "The
; Great Judgment Morning."
Mr. Miller's text is found in the
27th verse of the 9th chapter of He
brews: "It is appointed unto men
' ouee to die, but after that the .judg
ment." Mr. Miller said that, if part!
of the text is true, all is true. If any !
! of the Bible is a lie. all is a lie, and, if j
part is true, all is true. No one can |
deny that it is appointed unto man to i
die and it must then be admitted that |
the judgment will follow. It is not !
death that men fear, it is the judgment j
which follows. Skeptics, unitarians, i
universalists, infidels, no matter what
they say when in Health, when they
come down to death realize that a
judgment awaits them. Even tlie devil
helieves in 'hell and judgment. Every
thing written in the book which will i
be read at the judgment will be a true |
record of our deeds: we will remember j
them. When men write biographies of
men they usually forget to mention the
bad, but enumerate all the good. God
writes it all.
"Some one has remarked that some'
of the men in the Bible were pretty |
bad, that Noah got drunk. They were j
like men nowadays, they sinned, and
God did not do like human biographers,
omit the bad, God wrote it down. Noah i
got drunk, and God wrote it down, i
Achan stole some gold, and God wrote ' j
it down." The speaker here enumer-i ,
ateii several more instances. "Our evil;
deeds are recorded in the judgment j i
book. Xo one knows how soon he will | t
be called into judgment. We can offer \ t
no excuse that is valid in the sight of j <
God. for not seeking salvation. Some I i
people say their business occupies all I
their time and they have no time to be-11
come Christians. Tkit is uot true, we I<j

must place God first. It is right to at
tend to one's business. It is no dime
to be rich. Abraham was rich. But he
did not neglect salvation nor the serv
ice of God.''
The speaker was heard with close at
tention, as he described with feeling
death scenes, where the person a.bout
to die was not ready for the judgment
day. Mr. Miller asked whether infidel
ity or skepticism has ever made any
one a 'better man. He asked men who
have been saved, by religion, from an
evil life, to rise. After they had been
seated, he all to rise who have
betu siued from an evil life toy skep
tieism or infidelity. None rose. The ser
mon was replete with proofs of a com
ing judgment, for which ail unsaved
were urged to prepare. Mr. Miller eited
towns against which judgment had lieen
prophesied, and to which judgment
came. The sermon was powerful and
the spirit of Uod was present. At the
conclusion of the sermon, nineteen ac
cepted Christ.
