A EULOGY TO SCOTTIE AND WISEMAN
As this is the last issue of the Daily New Era—tomorrow being
Sunday, and the meeting closing that night—we feel like saying
something in regard to the services which have been going on it the
tabernacle. We think we can say without contradiction that it has
been the most wonderful meeting ever held in Davenport. The
crowds have heen large from the beginning, estimated from 500 to
1000 each night. Think I can say that I never saw a more orderly
and well behaved congregation. In fact, an exceedingly apprecia-
tive audience." The sermons delivered by Bro. Scottie were in-
structive, entertaining and full of pep. He lambasted the devil
good and hard—a fact evinced by the howl he. put up on street
corners, alleys and back yards of the town. We think it was a
good job when Scottie was called from bricklaying and pugilism to
saving souls and hammering sin. He has kept clear of the charge
of proselyting and labored faithfully for salvation of souls, pointing
them to the Christ who was lifted up that all who looked might live.
We rejoice in the fact that many took him at his word and were
reclaimed and many were converted. All were requested to af-
filiate with the church of their choice.
In one particular incident was the power of God manifested
mightily in the conversion of a skeptic.
Another.thing we can say of Scottie is that he can put his feet
under your table and while feeding himself (and by the way, he is a
good feede'r) can be entertaining as an Irishman usually is. God
bless you Scottie. I am truly glad that God-sent you this way, and
pray that you may be as useful in other fields as you have been in
Bro. Wiseman, who is Scottie's musical director, has surely
found his calling. He knows how to draw the music out of the
choir and can almost make the congregation sing—something hard
to do. God bless Wiseman and may he every day get a better and
broader vision of the labor whereunto he is called and may he see
much fruit of his labors.
Go your way rejoicing, brethren, in the fact that the Lord has
given you this work, and when the harvest for yoi* is ended, gather
up the sheaves and lay them at the feet of Jesus and recive your
reward as promised to all soul winners. If we meet no more here,
pray that we meet in the Golden City. Maranatha!
Rev. N. T. Peak got a phone
message yesterday evening that
his wife was worse and left hur-
riedly for his home in Sparks.
We still get 50c for chill tonics.

sas, last night.
