which can be attached to railroad

God for the wonderful way in
which be has used the Presby
terian rhurch for the good of the
world, do I desire to speak on 'The
Oldest Presbyterian.'
"The early Christian rhurch
was confined principally to
Jerusalem, but after the death of
Stephen, the first Christian
martyr, the persecution which
followed, scattered the disciples
of Christ over Judea and Samaria,
and was I tie means of spreading
the new faith, for 'they went
everywhere preaching the gospel.'
So, too, years later, when Paul
was sent to his martyrdom at
Rome, the followers of Christ were
scattered over various parts of
Europe. Among those that went
forth as 'guardians of t ho truth'
was a faithful band of refugees,
known as the Waldonisans, which
I have designated as "the oldest
Presbyterians.' They found a
home in the rugged valley of
Piedmont, and there kept al've
the light of the faith."
Then followed an elaborate de-
An Address Delivered by C. A.
Rawls Before the P. E. O.
Society Friday Evening.
Referring to the Presbyterian
church on the American con
tinent reference was made that
Presbvterianism had been the
chief factor in securing individual
richts and liberty to the American
citizens. The fact was hrnusrhf
out, that the Scotch-Irish Prosbv
terians were the first to acritale
separation from Groat Britain.
.And also that more than half of
the officers and soldiers In the
Revolutionary war were Presbv
lerians. and that in TCneland it
was called a Presbyterian rebel
lion. In closing Rev. Ondo said: "Thh
Presbyterian church, great in her
mission, great in human learn
ing, great in her thoueht and life,
has come up thronirh the aires
bearing upon her broad brow the
battle scars of manv a fierce con
flict, her heart pierced through
and through, her side drinpinar
wilh blood, bearing the crimson
hands and the crimson feet, like
her Master, coming un from Edom
with dved garments."
If we should say in this ad that we can furnish you
the best suit of clothes you can buy for $20, no matter where you go or send
for them, would you believe it? You doubtless are from Missouri. But
when we make such a statement as that, and we do make it, are you willing
to give us a chance to prove it? In other words, are you willing to be shown?
We can't prove to you the truth of our statement without you give us a chance : locomotivos and effectively used
in preventing conflagrations on
the tracks. A test of the appliance
was recently made at the Ewing
avenue shops of the Missouri Pa
cific in St. Louis, which was wit
nessed by Assistant Chief John F.
Rarry of the St. Louis fire depart
ment. and Chief James T. O'Don
nell of the St. Louis Underwriters'
Salvage corps. It was demon
strated that a stream of watoi
could be thrown 65 feet in the air
with 200 pounds of steam pres
sure on the locomotive. In a let
ter to Acting General Manager J.
V. Uiggins of the Missouri Pacific-Iron
Mountain, Messrs.
Barry and O'Dnnnell endorsed the
appliance so strongly that it has
been decided to equip all yard en
gines on the entire system and
some of the road locomotives
wilh it,
The tanks of the large yard en
gines hold 6,000 gallons of water.
Mr. Barton's plan is to carry 50
feet of one and one-quarter-inch
steam hose on a reel under the
running board of the engine.
Steam hose is used, as the water
which comes from the tank and Is
forced through the branch pipe is
very hot and in a short time would
destroy the ordinary rubber hose.
The connection is placed on the
branch pipe between the boiler
check and injector. The idea is
that when an engine reaches the
scene of a fire in the yards a
switchman is to jerk the hose
from the reel and attach it to the
coupling leading from the branch
pipe, and the engineer is to start,
the injector, while the tlreman
goes out on the running board
and opens the valve in the branch
pipe leading to the boiler check.
The stream of water can then be
turned on the conflagration.
Mr. Barton, who designed the
apparatus, was for a number of
years general inspector of the St
Louis Fire Prevention buerau, and
savs that many disastrous fires in
railroad yards are caused by the
inability of the city fire engines to
get 'close to the scene, whereas
railroad locomotives can reach the
scene in the shortest possible time
by running over the road's own

In response to an invitation of
the program committee of the P.
Fi. (). society, C. A. Raw Is ad
dressed that society Friday after
noon on the subject of socialism.
The subject was treated from the
standpoint of an independent in
vestigator, and the address show
ed that the speaker had read
widely upon this subject and knew
something about what is claimed
by the leading thinkers of the
socialistic party of today, as well
as what the greatest of all think
ers and writers in that school of
political philosophy, Karl Marx,
thought and taught.
Socialism, said the speaker, is
very much misunderstood by those
who oppose it, and by those who
claim to bo its adherents. The
address only claimed to present a
few of the fundamental doctrines
of socialism as advanced by the
best leaders of that party. The
philosophy of socialism; the
economics of socialism and the
social commonwealth, as sot forth
by Kark Marx, was explained and
discussed. The constant aim and
purpose of the socialistic move
ment is to secure for labor a
greater and more just share of the
wealth that it alone produces. To
attain that end this school teaches
that it is necessary for the people
as a collective body to obtain the
control of the means of produc
tion, not by revolution or rebel
lion, but by using the political
machinery of our government by
getting into the hands of the poo-
i pie, gradually and my lawful
I means, by process of education,
I development and evolution of
i Ihoucht, belief and of a social
consicence and consciousness, the
political power of the government.
By this means can they more
easily bring about the great
economical changes which they
believe necessary for the welfare
and common good of all the
citizenship of the republic. The
great fundamental truth which is
believed and taught by this party,
is that labor is the great produc
er and creator of values and
wealth, and that under the pres
ent svstem of capitalism, it is not
getting its just share that labor
is onlv getting a sufficient of the
value it produces to perpetuate it
self, that Is to live, to go on pro
ducing for the benefit of capital.
Many points of interest were
brought out bv tho speaker; and
he declared that say and think
what we will, that the socialistic
