Rev. J. J. Cole read from the Matthew 6:
and spoke about twenty-five
minutes. He emphasized the
thought that while God had given us
mammon to enjoy, we must not
sacrifice ourselves to mammon. Man's
business is to build character, make
a man seek first God's kingdom and
then the material things of life
would come in their turn the important thing oi life is character.
At the close of Rey. Cole's address
Rev. Virgil Elgin spoke Jor about
the same length of time, emphasising
the thought that God needs men in
the kingdom, and men need God to
enable them to reach the highest and
best of life. God in all ages has used
men for his service and has committed His kingdom to their care.

August 6. Editor Jkffkrsonian:
notice in your valuable paper once
in a while some of the happenings
about Seatonville, but the baseball
game seems to be overlooked, so I
will mention it if you will be kind
enough to give this line room.
Having heard in different ways of
this game, and especially that last
Sunday was the day for what they
called a "double header," I desired
to go. and I am here to tell you it
was a sure enough game. If I got
the plan correctly Joe Gelhaus was
there with a nine, and there was
another nine called Blue Rock. Then
Dr. Turner came in with the Seatonville team and the work began. The
first thing I saw of any consequence
was when the bases were full, a hit
made by a
called Hamp Bishop.
Well, sir, when he struck that ball
it looked like it was going out of the
country. Hamp must be the Seatonville champion.
The boys on the
other side widened out as far as the
level land went, then into the bushes
and was still not out far enough. To
see Hamp make that run made Dr.
Turner prance with joy, Joe Gelhaus
to twist that military mustache with
horrow and Blue Rock to get bluer.
Another feature of the game was
the fine fielding of Tom Nelson for
Seatonville and Eddie Ghering for
the Gelhaus team. When the games
were over the score board showed
Seatonville 20 to 12 over Blue Rock
and 14 to over Gelhaus. I thought
before this that Seatonville was getperiment again?
