Sermons to Make Men Think
This is truly a day and age of
thinkers. Are you one? Are you
thinking about the times the past,
the present and the future or are
you drifting idly with the tide of
human affairs, without even so much
as a single thought of whence of
where of when? Last Sunday there
was begun at the Baptist church in
Union a series -of sermons by the
pastor calculated to make men think,
and which are inquiries in a sense,
although they are answers as well,

Mrs. Thomas Cromwell, which is be- through c.ta tions from the ord o

Injured in Wreck Last Sunday
Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Moray, of Den
ver, Colorado, who have been mak
ing the journey from their home to
Joplin. Mo., passed through Union
last Sunday on their trip south and
were proceeding, as they thought,
very well, when about five miles
south of this place, they ran off the
end of a culvert near the home of
Hugh Robb. Mrs. Moray was thrown
out of the car, which turned over on
its side, being quite severely injur
ed. She was brought to the hotel
at Union, where' she was treated by
Dr. Barrett and while suffering con
siderably from Injuries sustained to
her back, she is showing some im
provement. The couple are stopping

to a full house probably the largest
sized gathering that has been in the
church since the coming of Rev.
Taylor to Union--and it was listen
ed to with great interest. The sub
ject of the discourse was "Signs of
the Times." and in it he discussed
the following sub-topics: "Is this the
war spoken of as that just preceding
the coming of Christ?" "Do we know
the minute he will come?" and "Will
the League of Nations establish per
manent peace?"
The series will be broken next
Sunday by the meeting of the con
vention of state workers, known as
the "Autumn Assemblies," and which
is mentioned at length elsewhere in
this department. The subjects for
the coming weeks are: October 23.
"Election;" November 2, "Heaven;"
November 9, "Hell," and the last of
the series on November 16th, "The
Second Coming of Christ." All are
live, thinkable topics and you had

Special Correspondence

just enjoyed. H. L. Swanson, the
genial agent of the Missouri Pacific
returned to his work last Monday

vacation at Osceola, where his folks
live and at Eagle, where Mrs. Swan-

his sorrow. Taylor Wilson, the

it is evident that the duck hunting
season has arrived. Last Monday
Fred Clark and his nephew, Ira
Clark, proprietor of the Union bar
ber shop, departed for the Missouri
river and with the clouds plentiful
they enjoyed a few hours shooting at
the ducks on the river. Ducks as a
rule are pretty clever, but two got
directly in line with the guns of our
local sportsmen and the poor things
were killed. In this the ducks them
selves were to blame and no one
should accuse the hunters of wan
tohly killing the feathered creatur
es. A third bird was killed, and for
this the innocence of the hunters
cannot be pleaded, for they did it in
tentionally, both firing at it, and
then, fearful least it might get away,
beat it to death with a club.
