Members and friends of
Brotherhood met in the ch
night to the number of sbout one humn-
dred and fifty to celebrate the anni-
‘| versary of the organization.
The male quartet, consisting of W
H. Baldwin, 8S. E. Thorley, H. M.
Cook and Paul D. Clutton, furnished
the music to the enjoyment
of all present. Mrs H. M. Cook pra:
sided at the organ. :
This meeting was & notuhie
one, many outside of its own member-
ship being present. Judge Ruppel
was the special gnest of the oceasion,
whomade a strong address ‘on “Why
tudy the Bible?’
Mr. R, H. Philson, in his usual ex-
cellent manner, acted most acceptably
as toastmaster.
¢ Rev. J. A. Yount, teacher of the
Brotherhood, was first to respond,
speaking on ‘““Men In the Church.”
The reasons he attributed to the lack
of attendance is due to the fact that
many men work, the growing idea of
weakness or femininity, various at-
tractions, newspapers, clubs, lodges,
etc. What is the remedy? 'Tomingle

the attendance at church and the in-
terest in the brotherhood can be much
D. A. Floto, president of the broth-
erhood, said that the object of the or-
ganization is to advance the interests
of the church and to increase its mem-
bership. The membership is now be-
tween 60 and 70, and this is not enough.
Too often the older members are care-
fully looked after and the Younger
members are neglected.
R. D. Pfahler spoke on ‘What Good
We Get from the Brotherhood.” It
develops individuality of thought, and
it is in the exchange of views which
helps to broaden one’s own views. It
is a giving and receiving and results
in men of strength and mind in a
Christian way. This results in a bet-
ter condition which °s far-reaching,
affecting town, county and state.

if we are not our brother's Eceper
we can stop here and say we will
study the Bible and have a happy en-
trance into heaven, bnt the teachings
of the Bible iustii into onr hearts and
minds that longing and effort to reach
out and go beyond self. This is seen
in the family where the man watches
over te child, then later the man be-
comes feeble and wornout, and the
child becomes a man and takes the
place of the parent. Each member of
the family has a particular place.
This Word which binds the family to-
gether makes a home—a home that
will not be dissolved. You cannot
have the home without the Bible. All
men have a religion; man worships.
What is in the Christian religion that
holds it together but the Bible?
Takeaway the Bible, would we have
the church? The Hindoos and others
have their religions, but they have
nothing to bind them together, con-
sequently there is no permanency.
The Bible unites men.
The Jew has the Old Testament;
the Mohamme an the Old and New
Testaments, with some additions, and
the Christian accepts the Bible—Old
and New-Testaments—which finally
brings the world to Christ. We want
as a church to know the teachings of
the Bible. The Holy Spirit operating
on the Word helps us to understand it.
The Bible is established by the edict
of the Almighty. Are you in the
church? Morality, brotherhood, good
deeds—all nothing outside of the
church. There are many persons in
the church unworthy, but do not for-
get that no one is perfect. Yet with
the influence of the church around
him there is hope of his salvation.
