Religious Worship Mr Jo Smith of Honey Grove Tex as an old citizen of Columbia who has been visiting in Adair county for the past two months handed us the folio wingarticle for publication It is from the Honey Grove Tex Citizen For sometime past the socalled sanctified people have been holding services in the tent west of the square near Uncle Joe Smiths home but the groans of the man Bryant accompa nied by his cries to the Lord for help became a nuisance and the people of fire were asked to vacate and have now taken possession of the grounds near the Morgan gin The Citizen is ready at all times to give a good word to any denomination of Christian people who are striving to do the Masters will and live the life of the righteous but should a minister of any church of this city continually make a tirade upon the other pastors and members of respective churches calling them tbives and hypocrites and the business men a gang of thieves and robbers we then as publishers of a gen eral newspaper have a perfect right to a n expression o n such matters When the sanctified third fire preachers began their abuse and criti sm just at that stage of the game did they lay themselves open to criti cism and as they have seen fit to criti cise our citizens generally its minis ters members of churches and business men they must expect criticism in re turn Much had beeu said as to the dis aceful acts at the tent and for three consecutive nights the CITIZEN was yohto the attempt of Bryant to preach and explain the scripuras but s attempt in each case was futile making dismal failure of it He adImits his illiteracy and ignorance but itwas unnecessary for him to announce such a startling fact as every words and expression proved it He used to be better known through this section as a flyingjenny manager and when he met a couple of men of this city a short time since who knewt him as such he made the statement to them that he had found an eas ier way of making a tying now than running a flyingjenny and that he was sure getting the coin These men arc well known in this city an will substantiate our assertion and unquestionedpThe denunciation of all religious people who do not believe as their fanatical hypnotists do has caused a gebeenwhole tent outfit after a certain luur in the evening proceedings has been taken in charge by a lot of young Amer cas who have made the whole tent show that of ridicule and derision Such sccns arc naught but mocker c and blasphemy x f the teachings ohChrist and the scenes at the bench when they claim that the spirit of God prosttrating with the fire Is a fraud of the first wateIILast Thursday night Miss Wagoner daughter of one of the preachers w prostrated with the lire and so teremainedtold when she awoke to cat a good hearty meal this making the scum or third time she had been hypnotizedt with this fire On Saturday alititsafe penitents were getting to the frolitthat very slowly but Mrs Wagoner went the bench she being the wife of one preachers and mother o f MIscJ Wagoner She was after a reason blc length of time upon her kneesI surrounded by Bryant Wogoncr and Johnson who closed in on their victim and Bryant called upon the Lord tois send the spirit of fire to burn from crown of her head to her toes and while this was goinRon the hypnotists were getting in their work and she soon began to totter and was caught by her husband who stretched her out the ground after which the three left her while the fire act was got ngour on One very noticeable feature is that Bryant wants no one to get near to seemany their work butonSaturday night eIrthe work was so course that it was detect as a party unknown tojthera sto within three feet seclug the work Bryant always cles out fur police protection if any onahappuris to stand flycent them too long while they are firing llulr victim with hi 1niutin l It is nothing more nor less than base hypocrisy for men to pretend in the n lme of their Creator to prostrate when it is only done through them selves thus becoming the work and promptings ofjthe devil in thus trying to deceive the unsuspecting Now that the public and those who are atttending these meetings to see the fun may know that we mean just what we say we will take a man of this city one known to be a worldly man and in the eyes of these preach ers one posssessed of the devil because he has not been fired as they have and will appear with him on the pu lie square or in the tent at the option of these preachers and will prostrate our victims just the same and when they have had a good dose of the fire hypnotism will cause them to shoo and pray or sing as loud as any one We will see that they give a firstclass performance while Brother Will Bird leads the choir There will be o charge for admission nor n taken up Neither will there be any deception as the performance will be in the presence of all and the ers can rest assured of front sea while the performance is going on We only make this proposition to show the people that the prostrating by Bryant Wagoner and Johnson is done by themselves and not in answer to any of tkcir prayers as they would make the unsuspecting believe and is nothing more nor less than a fraud perpetrated on an unsuspecting people Wears ready to carry out our proposition any night if these preachers will notify us stating place and hour they desire performance to be given Quaker Reflections Lots of people are found out when u go to call on them No man needs to be instructed in theart of spending money No Maud dear garden hose should be
