A MUCH-NEEDED SERMON.
Rev. J. E. Oatcs preached a
stirring, practical sermon to a good
audience in the Baptist church
last night from the text: "Keep
thy heart with all diligence; for out
of it are the issues of life." Prov.
4 : 23. He showed that the heart
was the seat of the affections and
the mainspring of all actions.
Hence, a bad heart will always
produce sinful, wicked conduct,
but a pure, clean heart will lead
one into the paths of righteous righteousness
ness righteousness and to upright conversation.
Our hearts are "deceitful and des desperately
perately desperately wicked" until the cleansing
blood of Jesus is applied to them
by faith. All who have been con converted
verted converted have new hearts hearts of
flesh and arc urged to "keep
them with all diligence." We
may expect those who have wicked
hearts unregenerate hearts to
think evil thoughts, utter bad lan language
guage language and commit sinful deeds.
Christ called the Pharisees a "gen "generation
eration "generation of vipers," and said: "How
can ye, being evil, speak a good
thing? for out of the abundance of
the heart the mouth speaketh. A
good man out of the good treasure
of the heart bringeth forth good
things; and an evil man out of the
evil treasure bringeth forth evil
things. But I say unto you, that
every idle word that men shall
speak, they shall gve account
thereof in the day of judgment.
For by thy words thou shalt be
justified, and by thy words thou
shalt be condemned." Matthew
12 : 34-37.
It is vastly important for Chris Christians
tians Christians to keep their hearts clean,
for only the "pure in heart shall
see God." When we think of the
kind of books and newspapers
some Christians read we are not
surprised that they should be
troubled with evil thoughts. We
need a mighty reformation along
the lines of our daily home read readings.

THE CITY ELECTION.
The city election is the absorb absorbing
ing absorbing topic of conversation. The
polls will be opened at the various
voting places tomorrow morning at
8 o'clock. It is estimated that
there are 900 registered voters.
This is nearly double the number
that voted in the city election last
year. It is admitted on all sides
that Hon. John G. Reardon will be
re-elected mavor. He has made
such a fine record the past year
that the people have confidence
in him and vant him again. He
understands the technicalities of
the law and his rulings are always
proof against the assaults of legal
experts. His splendid literary
taste and speaking ability enable
him to reflect credit upon the city
by public speeches upon important
occasions; besides, he is firmly en entrenched
trenched entrenched on the side of the Bible
and good morals.
We repeat, Ocala expects every
legal voter within her bounds to do
his duty tomorrow. The ballot
is the foundation of all free gov government

misuse it. Let us vote as we pray.
