ANOTHER MUST HEAR SUNDAY.
Unruly Boy Sentenced to Attend Evangelist's Revival.
Billy Sunday as an adjunct to the juvenile court, entered his official duties yesterday by lecturing a boy brought before Judge E. E. Porterfield for unruliness at home. Of course the evangelist didn't lecture to this boy alone, but the lad was technically "sentenced" by the judge to hear Billy Sunday's sermon to young folks.
The boy was Earl Snodgrass, 16 years old, of Independence. Court officers testified yesterday morning that he had an unruly temper and kicked over the chairs at home when angry. Judge Porterfield talked to him, telling him he didn't like to send a boy to the McCune farm who had a good home.
"You go and hear Billy Sunday this afternoon and if you promise to do this and hear two other sermons at the tabernacle, I'll release you, for I believe it will do you good," said the judge.
