Your Lecture, Be Somebody is indeed a message of solid worth. Our people were delighted. It is instructive, entertaining, humorous and pathetic.—I.T. Creek Pastor Bap. Church, Maryville, Mo. Introduction MR. HUNT'S WORK has proven eminently satisfactory. He has won laurels upon every appearance. He is a man of the people, and has a message for all classes. Some time since he addressed the Missouri State Federation of Labor Unions assembled in his city; so completely did he captivate the body that the next day he was unanimously and enthusiastically elected an honorary member and presented with a purse of gold. He has many calls for school commencements, teachers' institutes and patriotic occasions. CHICAGO, Aug. 16, 1902. Dear Mr. Hunt: While acting as platform manager at the Wathena, Kan., Chautauqua this summer, one of the most pleasing lectures was your Be Somebody. I know and have heard all the best lecturers on the platform, and without taking any love from them, I can say Be somebody is as good as the best. It is full of wit, logic and sentiment, and your earnestness of delivery will touch and gladden any heart and do it good. I shall be glad to recommend you any where and everywhere. EDWIN L. BARKER. BLACKWELL, OKLA, April 4, 1902. I take pleasure in saying that I have lately heard Rev. M. P. Hunt in his lecture on the subject, Be Somebody. I don't know when I have heard an address I have enjoyed more. Every young man and young woman ought to hear it. Mr. Hunt has a message to give. His lecture is characterized by the highest form of eloquence—he is in earnest. I highly recommend this lecture to any church or school as being far above the ordinary. JAS. A. BEAUCHAMP, Pres't Oklahoma State Baptist College. Rev. M. P. Hunt spoke for nearly two hours last Friday evening at the opera house upon the theme, Be Somebody. The house was filled with a representative audience that listened attentively to every word uttered. The lecture was interesting, instructive, inspiring, and undoubtedly awakened in many a desire, an ambition, a determination, to Be Somebody. To his earnestness and personality in address he has added consecutiveness of thought, keen logic and eloquence. The serious, the humorous, the light, the grave, the anecdotal, the philosophical, were so combined and interwoven as to hold the attention and to cause one to forget the element of time entirely. Ellsworth, Ks., Messenger. A voice like the roar of thunder, thought like the lightning's flash, while the truth falls like the grateful rain. You laugh and cry—when Hunt is done you have heard something; you don't have to go on the still hunt for it.— Fred Emerson Brooks. The lecture, Be Somebody, by Rev. M. P. Hunt of St. Joseph, Mo., was one of the finest ever delivered here. It is greatly hoped that he will come back again next summer and repeat this lecture at the lecture congress, which is now an assured fact.— Ro k Port Cor. to St. Joseph News. Rev. M. P. Hunt, pastor Patee Park Baptist Church, spoke last night in the Auditorium of the Y. M. C. A. for two hours without for a moment losing the undivided attention of his audience.

ASSEMBLY OF 1902 MAYSYILLE, MO., Aug. 22. Dear Mr. Hunt: I cannot let you go away from our Assembly without giving you this line to say that our entire crowd enjoyed your lecture on Be Somebody. Although you gave it here last season it came to us again as a welcome message. It is a helpful uplift and no one can hear it and not be better therefor. You carry your hearers along the sunshine route to high ambitions and noble impulses. Keep it up. Yours fraternally, SPILLMAN RIGGS, Supt. Encomiums and Press Notices. One of the good men who are giving their best thought to the people, in the lecture field, is Rev. M. P. Hunt of St. Joseph. We had him at the Rock Port Lecture congress, of which I have been manager for the past two years, and his lecture on Be Somebody, was one of the very good ones of a course of twenty lectures.

It was a strong plea for honest individuality, common sense and uprightness.— Parkville Journal. In his lecture, Be Somebody, Pastor M. P. Hunt is peculiarly happy in the use of brilliant and forcible expressions of truth. The high character of thought, the imagery of style and the unbounded eloquence of the speaker give to his lecture a rare distinction.—L. E. McNair, Pastor Second Presbyterian Church, St. Joseph. Elder M. P. Hunt, pastor of the Patee Park Baptist Church of St. Joseph, followed with The Church, the Preacher and the Masses. Brother Hunt is an original character, and as a joke-teller that clinches the nail and strings the fish he is an expert. Every bit of his fun has method in it, and while he entertains he drives home a moral as pure as the Golden Rule itself.— Richmond, Mo., Democrat. Dear Brother Hunt: It was my great delight to hear on last night for the first time your justly famous lecture: Be Somebody. You are the best illustration in yourself of the points made in the lecture. The lecture is logical, has fine movement, splendid climaxes of wit, humor and pathos. There is in it the fire of eloquence which makes one burn for better and nobler living. I congratulate you upon the magnificent audience and the well night hypnotic attention you obtained from it. It was the largest crowd I ever saw in the Music Hall. This is very remarkable honor for a home man to receive in St. Joseph.—John Ernest Cook, Pastor First Baptist Church, St. Joseph. Rev. M. P. Hunt of St. Joseph, lately delivered his lecture Be Somebody before Faculty Students, and a goodly number of townspeople in Wm. Jewell Chapel. He spoke for nearly two hours, but the serious and humorous; the light and the grave, philosophy and ancedote were so interwoven that one had neither time nor inclination to ask himself how long has he been speaking? All who heard the address was pleased and profited and the general feeling was that Mr. Hunt will always command a large audience whenever he consents again to appear on a Liberty platform.—R. P. Rider, Prof. in William Jewell College. Rev. M. P. Hunt of St. Joseph, Mo., delivered his lecture, Be Somebody, before the students and friends of William Jewell College on the 12th inst.

Everybody was pleased and inspired.—Ex-Congressman J. H. Burrows. Be Somebody is the subject of a lecture recently delivered by the Rev. M. P. Hunt of St. Joseph, Mo., at this place.

The speaker is eloquent, forceful and convincing.—E. T. Fairchild, Supt. Schools, Ellsworth, Kans. The people of King City who turned out last Friday night and comfortably filled the Baptist Church, to hear the lecture of Pastor M. P. Hunt of St. Joseph, were a well satisfied lot of people at the end. Rev. Hunt's lecture was interesting from start to finish, and when he closed many were surprised at the fact that the lecture had consumed two hours of time. The people of King City will warmly welcome the return of the lecturer at any time.— King City Democrat. LAMAR, MO., MARCH 5, 1903. Pastor M. P. Hunt filled one number on our school lecture course and everybody went away highly pleased. His lecture, Be Somebody, is inspiration for the young, and wise counsel for the old. Many of our young people heard him and we only regret that more did not, though he spoke to a crowded house. No mistake will be made by putting this lecture on a course. Very truly, L. M. GARRETT, Supt. of Schools. The lecture by Pastor M. P. Hunt of St. Joseph, at the opera house, Be Somebody, was a splendid effort, entertaining as well as instructive. Every element which the speaker claimed was necessary to success was illustrated by stories from the lives of famous men. The wise observations and keen logic were interspersed with pithy stories such as Mr. Hunt can tell, while back of the logic and eloquence was the powerful personality of the speaker. Mr. Hunt is himself a man who has made a success in life by hard work, and as might be expected, his lecture was practical. His main thought was, be somebody, and the world will find a place for you.— Blackwell (Okla.) Daily News. The Rev. M. P. Hunt lectured December 16th at Hardin College Concert Hall.

It is a wise and timely message. REV. R. M. INLOW. It Was One of the Best.— Lamar Democrat. Dr. M. P. Hunt of St. Joseph, Mo., gave his famous lecture, Be Somebody, at the First Baptist church last night, to a large audience. The lecture was full of logic, common sense and wit. It is much to be regretted that every young man and woman in the city did not hear it. The audience was held spell-bound; laughter and tears were brought close together; strong appeals were made for personal effort and individual character building. Be honest, earnest and frugal, young man, and there is room at the top, was one of his admonitions to the young. Every one left feeling that life was worth living and that they would live for higher, nobler things.— Times-Journal, Oklahoma City. Rev. M. P.

Hunt at the opera house Wednesday evening was one of the best ever delivered in the city. It was for the benefit of the reading room and the subject, Be Somebody, proved a fruitful one. Rev.
