Aa a h-stllt of hla visit ' to Mollne Senor
iJnmlngdes believe the John Deere people
will open a Urge Implement house In
Mexico, where the German manufacturer
control the Implement business, and with
tools which he believe to be much In
ferior tn' those made In the United State
charge prices which make It almost Im
possible for the ordinary Mexican farmer
to buy the more modern Implement and
as a result they cling to the old Mexican

"I want to see Americans In business In
Mexico,'" tald Senor Domingurs. "I am
firm believer In the Monroe doctrine of
'America for Americans, and would like
to see the so-called "Harvester trust' got

American trust handling American made
goods In my country, and 'however much
peiple of the I'nlted States may believe
the Harvester trust keeps up prices. It Is
certain It would be a boon to Mexico. One
tiling about the so-ctlled trust. It does
supply first-clans Implements and at what
si cms to us very reasonable prlcea.
"Another Advantage which the trust
would be- to Mexico would be in showing
the people of that country how to uae

Implements are not used In Mexico, be-
cautio tho Indiana do not- know how to I
use them and the Implement dealer do
not show any Inclination to show them.
As a result we have our old plow to full

"I do hope the John "beer people will
break the ice, as It were, and come to I
Mexico. They would have two million

reason, but because of street disturbances
instigated and caused by the German stu
dents, who persisted by their parades or
"bumls" to provoke th. Bohemian public,
constituting nine-tenths of the Inhabitants
of the city of Prague, ha put the lives
and property of all the Inhabitants In

I.IKE ENTERING A NEW COUNTRY
Rer. John P. Clyde Say. New Year
Should Be Entered Right.
The advent of a new year and the best
way to take advantage of Ita blessings
and withstand Its sorrows end make the
best of the Ills which are in stcr. for all
tr.en from time io tlm. waa taken aa the
subject of the Sunday morning sermon
of Hev. John P. Clyde, the new pastor of
the Plymouth Congregational church.
"Ther I a seriousness about entering
Into a new year," said th minister, "but
wc should ei ter with a spirit of conquest
and ultimate victory over Its trials, ever
looking to the source of all strength and
wisdom for that guidance which mill en
able us to appropriate all th. privileges,
jty snd triumphs, and withstand all the
rvils and defeat."
Taking for hi text the word of Moses
a fouud in Exodus 83:15. "And he sail
vnto the Lord, If Thy presence go not
wttlt ma, carry hie not up hence." Mr.
Clyde said that thus and thus only ha
n n any guarantee that thtr. is anything
of good In th future, for without Christ
and th Christ lov there Is naught In
life for any man. "In the word of Moses,
we should return to God, for w need HI
presence and strength and guidance to
make each day of the new year a day of
gladness," said the minister.
Faraphraslr, th new yeir to that of
a new country or a nrw business venture
Mr. Clyde said that the best New Tfear i
resolution was that promising to enter tin
new year with the same determination t
llv. an honest, straightforward. Christian
life as that determination to cenquer tin
vicissitude of a new country or to sue
ceed in a new business.
MAN NEEDS A DIVINE Tfl ACI1EH
Can Learn Moat Neeeful Thing from
. None Other.
Rev. J. Narver Oortner of MeCabe
Methodist church, preaching on th. text
"A Prayer of Moses, the M.n ot Ood."
Sunday morning, said:
"Man needs a divine teacher. There are
many thing that men can teach ua. There
re many thing that we can learn In
academlea and colleges and universities.
There Is much that can be learned in that
larger school, the school of experience and
life. But there Is much that no man, how
ever learned, can teach is; there Is1 much
that we must 'remain forever Ignorant of
unless taught by the Great Teacher, who
understands the most Intricate problems
and whose competency to Instruct la not
to be compared with the competency of
ny mortal man.
The dealre of Moses was that h and all
Israel might b. taught by God to consider
the brevity of human life. Moses lived for
more than a century. He was 120 years
old when he died In the presence of Je
hovah on the mountain top. But even the
life of Moaes was brief when compared
with the ages of eternity.
Suppose you were to live as long as
Moses lived. When compared with the
countless ages your life would appear like
a tiny atom hi th. realm of llmltles spaee.
or a lea than a drop of water plck.d up
out of an ocean that has no shore and
the fathomless depths of which no sounding
cord has ever reached. Th longest lives,
even th. live of th. antediluvian patri
archs who lived for centuriea, hav. been
brief. The year ar. swiftly paaslng. It
will not be long until somebody els. will
be doing th. work that now engages your
thought and engrosses your attention. A
new generation will have arisen. How Im
portant It la that we should learn to pray
th. prayer of Moses, th. man of God, 'So
teach us to number our days that w. may
apply our hearts unto wisdom.'
"Many people think that wladom and
knowledge are synonymous terms. They
ar. not Many who have th latter are
without the former, and vie. vena. It I
well that the mind should be applied unto
knowledge; It Is better that the heart
should be applied unto wisdom. That man
who Is not wis unto salvation Is not wise
at all. He may have what the world
calls wisdom. He may b. great as
philosopher, great as a scientist, great as
a legislator, or great as a financier. He
may hand down to succeeding generations
name that will live and be honored
while the foundation of the earth remain
ntact. But If he lay up no treasure In
heaven he is guilty of th same criminal
folly that the rich man was guilty of, the
rich man to whom God said, 'Thou fool.
this night shall thy soul be required of
"The old year will soon die. Already we
have begun to loot back and count Its
successes and Its failures. What numerous
mistakes w. hav. made! What blunders
have been ours! What opportunities we
have neglected! What defeats we have
sustained! What sins we have committed!
The past can never be recalled. The book
will soon be closed and sealed. But the
future Is before us. Th new year, preg
nant with possibilities and blossoming with
hope, will soon begin. Let us close the
old year and begin th new yesr with the
prayer of Moses, the man of God, 'So
teach us tq number our days that ws
may apply emr Hearts unto Wisdom. "

"Unto u a child 1 born, unto u a son

prayer was' rendered Sunday morning and
the special musical program prepared by
the musical director, E. H. Packard, was
well rendered -by the choir.
"The birth of the future ruler of th.

MINISTER TELLS OF SUPREME GIFT
Rev. J. W, Conley, at Flrut Baptist
Church. Speaks on Giving.
"Tb. Supreme Gift" was the subject of
ths sermon of Rv. J. W. Conley at the
First Baptist church Sunday morning. HI
text wa from GalUtiana 11:20. "Who Loved
Me snd Gave Himself for Me."
Dr. Conley said In part:
"What Is the supreme significance of
Christ's coming Into th. world? Th. fund'
amental them, of th. gospel Is giving,
Tet we ar. to exercise car. in giving lest
w. lose th. significance of giving. A gift
amounts to very littl. In value unless there
la something of spirit In it as emanating
from the heart. Principle Is the easential
spirit of giving. Th. great object lesson
of giving is In th. giving of Christ by God
Th. oilghty principle of th. gospel is not
to give time and money, but ourselves.
The sjprem. act of the soul is giving Itself

"What kind of a God 1 that which looks
with indifference upon your suffering?
But God' great heart went out to you
with supreme sympathy snd this was th
atoning sacrifice. Christ said: 'H that hath

We separate our business ami social lrves
