We confess that we are somewhat glad to have missed Evangelist Sword’s sermon on “The Ideal Woman,” despite the presence of good singing.

Text of advertisement reads, “Revival Meeting, Skidmore Church of Christ. Conducted by F. A. Sword, Evangelist. The Man with a Message. Sword’s Lecture, Sunday at 3 p.m. on ‘The Ideal Woman.’ Points to be discussed: 1. Must she be a Christian? 2. Will she use slang or fool her time away with a poodle dog? 3. Will she dance or play cards? 4. Will she marry, if so, who will be boss? 5. Will she have access to the pocket-book? 6. Will you educate her in a female school? 7. Would you have her vote at all elections? Men are invited and will occupy the north line of pews. Evangelist Sword announces the following subjects for the week. Thursday night: Christ Divine.
