The religious census of Elk City is
still uncompleted, as a number of
those who helped in the work were
unable to cover all the territory
assigned to them before the rain
made it impossible to continue the
work. About sixty per cent of the
work has been done in a most satis-
factory manner by the twenty-five
workers from the various churches.
The committee in charge of the
work desire to have it completed the
later partof the week in order that
i final tabulation may be made by
he first part of the week. Those
who did not cover all their territory
may use any afternoon this week
they choose. If they have used all
their blanks, they will be supplied
with more by calling at the Method-
ist parsonage, corner Broadway and

return to the homes where no one

given their full co-operation.

Sister Lena Mattheson of Moore,

Bro. John Harmon of Guthrie,
Okla., delivered one of the most
fitting discourses in the beginning
of a that has been the reporter’s
privilage to listen to. His Sunday
morning theme was on “Giving”.
The financial part was not taken up,
but the giving of our service to God,
especially the Christians of Elk City.
Their giving to God in this revival
effort that has been started in our
midst. The time, labor and sacri-
fice we give will be given back to us
in soul enjoyment and at last a great
reward in the world to come. Bro.
Harmon also delivered the night dis-
course to a well filled house and
spoke so earnestly and forcibly that
the intelligent congregation as a
whole were well pleased with the
good old gospel message.
Bro. S. M. Rich and wife. Bro.
Bnd Sister Adams of Clinton, attend-
ed services here Sunday. Bro. Rich
is one of the best teachers in scrip-
ture in the southwest and is always
a welcome visitor. .
Again we earnestly invite the co-
operation of every Christian in Elk
City, that you pray for and boost
the meeting. Those who have heard
rumors of the meeting bring your
Bibles and thoroughly investigate
he truth that is presented. The
ministers will be glad to answer
ouestions anytime after services or
during the day.—Reporter.

CHURCH' OF CHRIST
William E. Gladstone once said:
“Talk about the questions of the
time. There is but one question—
how to bring the truth of God’s word
into vital contact with the minds and
hearts of all classes of the people.”
The need for sound thinking and
plain speaking never needed more
than at the present time. Thousands
are famishing for lack of the proper
spiritual food. The more thorough
our training, the more useful and
successful our service will be. The
church of our blessed Master needs
consecrated and efficient workmen.
In the public assembly is one of the
best places known to me in which to
do a good part of such work, as pre-
paring men, women, boys and girls
as soul winners.
Come to the following services:
Bible study at 10:00 a. m.: Preach-
ing at 11:00 a. m.; Lord’s Supper at
11:45. Preaching again at 7:45 p.
m. With good gospel siniging at
each of these services. This is your
invitation to come. You are wel-
come and we will always appreciate

the people into classes?” This ques-
tion was ably discussed, both in the
forenoon and afternoon; preaching
at night by Price Bankhead, of Duke.
The next day was given to the
discussion of the best way of settling
difficulties that arise in the church.
J. A. Hudson preached at night. He
has been laboring with the church at

OF JUNIOR B. Y. P. U.
One of the “mountain peaks” of
experience for which the church i3
noted, was reached last Sunday
tvening at the Baptist Church when
the devotional hour was given in
charge tf the Junior B. Y. P. U. The

who tried in a small measure to show
them the deep appreciation that they
feel toward them for their life of
