THE QUIET HOUR
Some of the phrases of the street
are course and crude. And some
of them are so apt and piquant that
they elbow their way into the dic
That word quitter is one of the
The "quitter" is the man who
throws up his job either because
some difficulty arises, or because the
novelty wears off. He is, ordinarily
either a faintheart; or else of a mer
At any rate, you cannot tie to
him. Like John Mark, whom Paul—
who held on to anything he under
took with a bulldog grip—branded as
a quitter, he quickly drops out of the
ranks and slips away to the rear
when the arduous work begins.
When you come to think of it
y.iul knew a number of folks of this
ilk, Dennis was one of the fraternity
of quitters—Paul said to him, "De
nnis Hatli forsaken me, having loved
this present world." And then there
were a number of quitters down in
Galatia to whom the Apostle wrote,
“Ye did run well, who did hinder
you?” And in His farewell letter
from his lonely prison he wrote “All
men forsook me."
“IIow many a devoted Christian
leader, in some crisis time, when
the co-operation and cordial sym
pathy of those who had pledged
him these very things would have
meant everything for his own in
spiration and the progress of the
work, has been compelled t o echo
Unit sad indictment. There are
enough men and women nerolled in
our churches each year to sweep the
and of evil, and to conquor the
world for Christ—but so many of
them are quitters. They cannot
lie counted upon for persistent con
tinuance in zealous devotion. Ev
ery community lias them. Who can
not count them by the score? Pos
sibly their names are still on the
church-roll; but you never think of
including them among the church’s
live assets. You feel like quoting
that infant’s epitaph with special ap
plication to this class;
“Since then lie was so early done for,
i wonder what he was begun for. ’
They grew well enough for a little
while, but as soon as mercury be
gan to climb; as soon as they dis
covered that Christian activity meant
“a man’s job’’ for them, "they with
In one of bis sledge-hammer ser
mons, Dr. Burrill recently, in char
acterizing “the quitter,’ told how
“in the lobby of the United States
Senate a group of politicians, not
long ago. was discussing the quali
fications of certain men as candi
dates for he presidenttial nomination.
It so happened that some of them
were pledged to advocate in interest'
ot a mutual friend. One of these
said, “! have changed my mind as to
the eligibility of Mr.-and am
inclined to think that we had better
drop him.’ A moment's silence, and
then another member of the group
said simply, “God Almighty hates a
quitter!’ ” and he goes on to draw
Bom helpful lessons from Peter’s la
mentable experience in this business
of quitting. But it is not so much
those who, like Peter, through cow
ardice, forsake Christ, tlmt we have
in mind. The quitters, in our church
today are those who, after a little
spurt in running the race, get tired
of their job and quit.
They have solemnly promised not
to. But they get tired and quit
Just the same.
They themselves understand that
God’s real purpose in keeping them
here is service, and that making any
other use of life is a misuse of it.
But that did not prevent them from
getting tired and quitting.
They realize that by relaxing their
zeal and slipping out of the ranks,
they are weakening the regiment
and making victory that much more
difficult for those who have to bear
the brunt. But nevertheless they
quit. They believe that a day of
accounting is coming when the loaner
of the talents will not tolerate a
napkin-story whine. But still they
It was not because some great
big honest doubt crept into their
hearts and, by the storm clouds of
their soul-struggle faith was eclipsed.
They did not have any soul struggle,
they just got tired and quit.
And because they were quitters
the church—and we need to remind
ourselves often that the church is
Christ’s chosen agency for spreading
his influence in the world—
Often counts its attendants by
baker’s dozens instead of hundreds;
Often is compelled to do the .Mas
ter’s work undermanned.
Often has only dimes to spend
for Christ where dollars are needed;
Often is compelled to devote years
to spiritual conquests which should
require only weeks or months;
In a word, finds its work hamper
ed, obstructed, handicapped, not be
| cause of open and avowed foes, but
! because of those who have definitely
pledged it their devotion, and then
who have failed to make good— be
cause of the quitters.
The old colored preacher who said
that Christian perseverance meant
“Firstly, to take hold; secondly, to
hold on; and thirdly, to nebber let
go," lilt the nail on the head.
it is safe to assume that the
> crown-wearers, when we go above,
will he, not necessarily the golden
tongucd proclaimers of the everlast
ing Gospel. That’s easy, if you are
adequately equipped for it. Nor will
they he necessarily the keen hair
splitting theologians. Nor yet will
they necessarily he those who by
da/allng deeds have been hailed as
the church's knight-errants. Any,
or all, of these may wear crowns up
Out the men and women who are
surest of their crowns are those who,
once for all, accept Christ as their
Savior and l ord, array themselves on
iiis side, ana then quietly, but nev
er wavering or holding back for a
moment, sunpiv endure to the end.
These are the true saints of the
iTotesta.il calendar. Every congre
gation has sotiiQ of them. There is
not a suggestion of the quitter-strain
in their blood. It is these faithful
folk that mike the pastorate, not
merely endurable, hut a deep and
abiding jay. I essed is that pastor
who lias h s qiever full ef them.
Kalitas City, October 17, 1910—
Cattle receipts here last week were
89,0110 head, including ll.ouo calves,
about a normal run tor tue time ot
the year, but larger than in the
previous week. The range states
sent in more cattle, and Kansas and
the quarantine territory less than
heretotore. The last named terri
tory will drop down rapidly in rec
eipts from now on, but the range
states will continue at a maximum
for two or three weeks yet. file
market held up in fine shape last
week, everything holding up steady
to firm, with the single exception of
calves, which lost about 25 cents.
The run today is several thousand
head less than on recent Mondays,
21,000 head, besides about 3.00U
calves. Chicago had over forty
thousand cattle today, with lower
prices, and it was feared at the start
that this might cause some weakness
here, but tlie market here held up
steady. Last week closed up health; *
and with normal receipts all around
today, prices would have been high
er here. A little colder weather
would help the market on killing
stuff, and with the recession in re
ceipts likely immediately ahead, it
looks like prices should he strong.
Best steers in the open market
brought $8.15 here last week, al
though show cuttle sold at $7.60 to
$8.60. Tiie best here today brought
$7.46, and bulk of the grass Steers
here from Kansas are selling at $4.60
to $6.00, feeders $4.00 to $5.75.
For a change the hog market made
a gain of nine cents on an average
for the week, last week. The run
continues infinitesimal, only 23,000
head last week, less than half the
run same week a year ago. Supply
is 3,500 here today, market strong to
10 higher on most sales, after an at
tempt of the packers to get them at
lower prices. Buyers have been
trying to pound heavies lately, try
ing to discourage owners in the
popular disposition to make big hogs,
and boosting lights, in an effort to
entice more of this kind to market.
A year ago light hogs were about a
quarter under the heavy weights, ex
actly the reverse of present condi
tions. Heavy hogs brought $8.80 to
day, medium weights $8.90 to $9.05.
Light weights $8.90 to $9.05.
