Sentence Sermons By El Paso Ministers N O MAN is fit to hold any position of trust and responsibility in civil or religious life whose motives and methods in the conduct of his private affairs are bad.—Rev. L N. Langston, of the Highland Park Baptist church. It is not enough that we should pray for forgiveness, we need to be kept from falling into the pit from which we have been digged.—Rev. Perry J. Rice, of the First Christian church. A comet draws more attention than the steady star; but it is better to be the star than the comet, following out the sphere and orbit of quiet usefulness in which God places us.—Rev. Asher A. Davis, of the (East El Paso Presbyterian church. It i9 fitting that the churches of the land should express to their own Soldiers that appreciation which is due to those who put their own lives in peril for the sake of those who now live and who shall live aflter them. We should match a little more than the mere dollar against their lives.—Rev. 0. J. Wade, of Calvary-Houston Square Baptist church. In the midst of all the doubt, dread and disheartenment of today, the failure of Christianity should be the least of our worries: “God is not overthrown by His own order.”—Rev. Charles L. Overstreet, of the First Presbyterian church. God’s love to us is manifested in the fact that he not only provides us the bare necessities of life, but adds unto them many things that make for our happiness. Among these are the songs of birds, the beauty of flowers and the glory of the sunsets. A personal acquaintance with the author of these things increases our appreciation ofl them.—Rev. N. H. Huffman, of the Orchard Park Methodist church. God's guiding, protecting, sustaining and abiding presence is with his people to give grace in this life and glory in the world to come.—Rev. H. P. Bond, of the Highland Park Methodist Episcopal church, South. It is to be pitied that the gospel message has been so painfully distorted by some of its heralds, making it a proclamation of impending doom, thundering forth the terrors of the law, depicting the dire penalties of sin in letters that flame with fire and brimstone, while the gospel is essentially and primarily good news, the story of God’s forgiving grace and pardoning love.—Rev. C. K. Campbell, of Asbury Methodist church. All history, both secular and divine, attest that ruin will ultimately overtake the man or the woman, the state or the nation that deliberately chooses the wrong in preference to the right.—Rev. J. H. Allen, of Austin Park Christian church. DEMAND A GUARANTEED TITLE A small fee pays all the expenses of a guaranteed title.

Toi cd 9 Subject to chan/4 vUhout notice Year after year for many years the thirty-five horsepower Overland has outsold, by a wide margin, all cars of such comfortable size. An unequalled combination of power, comfort and economy, it has naturally been an unmatched success, The thirty-five horsepower motor is not only unusually powerful—It is unusually economical. The wheelbase is 112 inches— unusually long—permitting unusual roominess. Thirty five horsepower!—112 inch wheelbase!!—$895!!! Also unusual at the price— cantilever rear springs that ease the car over the rough spots—permit speed with comfort on poor roads. No car of such comfortable size has ever approached its success, because none has ever combined such power, comfort and economy. God never conscripts any man into His service. But when a man volunteers he is expected to be loyal to his vows and to God’s laws. Mutineers and lawbreakers (backsliders we call them) are first reprimanded. This failing to bring them back, they are then courtmartialed and turned out, but there is nearly always a royal welcome waiting for them who will repent and return _ Rev. Frank C. Collins, of the East El Paso Methodist church. EL PASO OVERLAND CO., Distributors PHONE 170 BOULEVARD AND KANSAS
