, . . . ► : i !', I' B WHAT WE THINK By Frank Dixon lie old convention days were en- tertaining. Torch light processions and wind jammers carried the day. The people voted with the biggest torch light procession. o We remember well the first time Cleveland was elected. Lots of Re- publicans refused to eat for one inn], but we were young and never missed a bite. Nothing happened to am. We had to go on working as usua). Everyone was troubled with laid times as usual, only the Repub- licans talked about it more and there yvere more of them. We believed tniwt of the bunk and blamed the Democrats. And now we want to freport it will make no difference to tis who is elected the next president, pre will have to get up early and work ff we enjoy life. o The loafers, ranters and knockers will never save the country.

TWO-MINUTE SERMON By Rev. George Henry CONVICTION To convince a man of sin is the first step in accomplishing his conver- sion. Convicted, he seeks a pardon. It would be criminal to open a man's eyes to behold a great darkness. To behold sin is not edifying. To reveal to the convicted sinner how he may obtain forgiveness—that is glorious. Simply, it is a matter of faith, re- pentance, confession and baptism. This is the New Testament law of pardon. Following this and in arder to obtain eternal salvation, a man must "live the life." From this time forth the redeemed soul counts it all joy to spend and be spent in the ser- vice of God and man. It is a beauti- fully simple gospel. The wayfairing man can understand it, and it man become absolutely knowledge by ex- periment. Too bad, preachers differ in their teaching; but you are not de- pendent upon the preacher for in- struction. You have the Bible. Read it. Christ and the Appostles are the teachers from whose decisions there is no ap...

The Madisonville Meteor And Commonwealth | Thirty-JFifth Year Madisonville, Madison County, Texas, Thursday, August 16, 1928. Number Twenty-one Local Ginners Make Improvements 0 Marsh & Hensarling have recently made improvement on their gin lot by cleaning out town branch running by their property, bringing the dirt from the bed of the branch and raising and leveling their lot. This will not only improve the lot but give the water more room in the branch and thus reduce the overflow when the rainy season sets in. It would be a great help to the town in general if other property owners along the stream would clean out the trees and open up the branch by digging out the channel so that the water could get out faster and the big overflows that come could almost be eliminated. Who will be the next to start on this improvement? Knocked From Road; Submerged in Water Last week when Mr. and Mrs. Curran were on their way to Beau- mont from Madisonville, a Hupmobile ran into them and knoc...

THE MADISONVILLE METEOR, THURSDAY, AUGUST 16. 1928. Gossipers Worse Than Hijackers By Dr. Harry G. Knowles "If you are tempted to roll the mis- fortune of another under your tongue as a sweet morsel, just take it from me, you can not escape a worse dam- nation some day. Chickens come home'to roost. As a man soweth, so shall he also reap." In this fashion did Dr. Harry G. Knowles, pastor of the First Christ- ian church, warn his congregation of the church and his radio audience of the danger and evil of indulging in gossip, in yielding to jealousy, and in playing loose with marriage ties. Those people known as respectable were notorious offenders in these re- gards, the pastor declared. "There are none so blind who will not see" is a proverb of long standing. By far the more suffering is inflected upon mankind by those who are rated as respectable, prosperous, dignified folks than we would first suppose," Dr. Knowles began. "Our press, our reformers and our vice squads deal quite ext...
