all of our war talk is based upon our supposed inefficiency to meet tho Japanese either on tho seas or on land and altogether the attitude of the press would seem to bo such as to make tho Japanese rather or add much to their present sufficiency conceit Our war scare of tho week seems to have originated in a resolution of fered by a California Representative near the closo tho last session of

REV W H MEDLAR Ftitor of Linden HID Conr tadeeal Church Minneapolis TEXT A new commandment give I un to you that you love one another John XIII 3t- This was a now idea that Jesus proclaimed to men It was a fruit that ripened In the genial atmosphere which ho himself brought Into the world This social consciousness or lovo for others was a plant of slow growth Tho world had already arrived at a good ago when It began to recognize this great prlnclplo Think for a moment of tho genesis or evolution of lovo When we nbto tho difference between tho ancient time when the tribe or clan was the only bond between men all outside being considered enemies and these modern times when a poaco conference at The Hague unites tho leading nations of tho earth wo can see that a great change has taken placo In tho thoughts of men and nations toward each other This Is a creation far greater than tho physical worlds Something of the geologists sense of time must be appreciated Ages and eons rather than years or oven centuries must be considered Tho impassioned reformer needs to be trained to patience in his anticipation of these best things- It took nearly 100 years for this country to Insert tho antislavery clause which Thomas Jefferson re jected into tho Declaration of Independence This star not yet risen In Washingtons time camo to the horizon on Lincolns day Tho encroachment of the sea upon the continent Is not more steady and resistless than tie climbing of the masses of humanity into tho prerogatives and favorable conditions once monopolized by tho few Well furnished homes with musical Instru ments higher education amusements luxuries that onco wore limited to the rich and noble are today becoming the widespread heritage of the com mon people One characteristic of President Me Kinleys administration was making nearly a hundred appointments from tho ranks of tho laboring man Tho classes of intelligence wealth and leisure aro no longer looking with stoical Indifference upon tho multi tude in their pitiful Ignorance but with sympathetic attention to the causes which produce and the forces which may change these unhappy con ditions When all grades of society will begin to cooperato In raising mankind to the highest possible level then It will bo recognized that the life is more than meat and the body than raiment and man will have gone far In entering upon his universal kingdomChristian socialism teaches that the Individual cannot live unto himself and that tho social Individual Is the necesary unit of feeling A maximum of relationship with every kind of peoples Is thb substance of tho true IndividualWhat do we mean by the awakening of social consciousness this lovo for our fellows It means that we are clearly awakening to the tug of common Hfertho beat of Its heart the thunder of Its tread Does the mother recognize the tug of her child perhaps at the skirts of her dress or as the little hand wiggles into hers by her side The tug of 100000 coal miners In their oppres sion and wronged conditional When this common life of humanity with Its toll and sweat became organized tho tug could no longer be resisted Self ish and materialistic capital with Its greed bad to give way So must the social consciousness In tho right of others bo compelled to come to stand ands of Justice and mutual rights r Loving Service Service and sacrifice are the natural language of love Other men zany hMO ambition for themselves but a Christian must do ns his Master did servo humanity The life that end ed on the cross how little It Is understood How many know that there is but one material of which the cross ran bo made The only material that can get Into that shape Is love love that manifests itself in service which will not shrink from sacrifice The first recorded word of Christ was Wlst yo not that I must be about my Fathers business and his last It is finished What lies between these words Constant ministry When ho said Let him that is chlefcst among you be servant of all ho out lined the form that tho Christlike must take Peace That Is Power Gods will may dally be done by those whose place is obscure and whose gifts are humble Angels In hfmven live to do Gods will To do it perfectly and constantly Is their supreme endeavor and their ended There never was a time at least during the last 200 years when the difficulties in the wny of making an efficient use of books were greater than they are today when the obsta cles wero more real between readers and tho right books to read when It was practically so troublesome to find out that which Is of vital importance to know and that not by the dearth I but by the plethora of printed inatUr There is the tug of 10000 children from dusty grimy poorly ventilated factories Their cry Is for freedom The cry is for bettor prenatal con ditions Formation is more import ant than reformation Marriage laws need reconstruction to prevent Irro sponsible births of children Children entering life with such low vitality because of the vice or overworked condition of tho parents that they cannot compete In the strugglo of life and henco are thrown upon so ciety as paupers or criminals The tug of patriotism how it penetrates and burrows into tho soul Great life purposes cro laid aside Glad delights lire exchanged for endurance of pain This is the tug of the nation for its safety So also should the soul awaken to the univer sal cry of the rnco for freedom and safety It is to tho Interests of all sides that tho readjustment of tho social classes should come as a steady evolutionary process rather than as a so cial catastrophe It is unchristian to regard human Ute as a mere instru ment or chattel for the production of wealthFraternal redemption can only come when the brotherly Idea is fully recognized We have passed the age of heroes and institutions and havo come to the era of the peoplo Well has Jesus said A now com mandment glvo I unto you that yo lovo one another Jesus Christ anew circle a now center a new atmosphere is necessary Now for a leavening Let this new life sift into every nook and crevice and corner of human life and human society He that salth I love God and loveth not his brother is a liar THE LEGEND OF THE LARK Japanese Have Many Stories About Their Birds One of Which la the Following Tho Ainu tho aborigines of Japan have many legends about birds one of which Is very pretty It is thus given by a recent writer Tho skylark used to live In heaven One day tho God of heaven sent him down to the earth with a message for the gods who reside here telling him to return the same day But the little bird thought the earth such a nlco place that ho stayed to play He was here so long that it began to grow dark and ho therefore detormlned to spend the night on tho ground The next day ho arose In the air to return to heaven but God met him when he was about six scoro feet up and said Why did you not return as 1 told you As therefore you have dis obeyed my words you shall not return to heaven but live upon the earth Although you may attempt to fly as high as heaven yet you shall never be able to got any higher than lone or two scores of six feet The bird was exceedingly concerned at this and arguing with God said Oh great God as tho world you made is do beautiful I could not help taking a look at It and so got late Although you chide me for this yet I will fly back to heaven In this way bo answered God But God did not consent Therefore the little bird grew moro and more distressed and dally went as high as be could plead ing all tho time yet God would never consent to his entrance into heaven again Ho therefore returned to the earth to play After a time bb as cended and did tho same thing yet God did not consent The samo thing continues to happen now every sum mer but God never will allow him to returnThis as I have said Is very pretty and even spiritual but It seems to have been a happy incident for it is in striking contrast to the other legends which are more or less stu pid and pointless Forest and Stream Dont become blind to the differ ences between toleration and Indorse ment If you would avoid becoming a bigot rvor Is not frustrated Christ como to earth to do tho fathers will At Jacobs well he said to his disciples I have meat to eaUthat ye know not of and when they wondered what this saying might mean ho said unto them Mymeat is to do the will of him that sent me and to finish his work Tho will of God Is the hart mony of the universe the peace and Joy of heaven It Is the perfect law of liberty of angels and of men Thy will bo done is the heart of all real prayer Tho doing of Gods will is our supreme privilege That wo may do It even imperfectly is tho badge of our vital relationship to our Sa nor To do it perfectly everywhere anti always is the Christian aim When with all his heart ono consecrates him self to the doing of the will of God ho possesses the peace that is power Regeneration the Heart Tbo

Frost Tolls some of the Benefits to be Derived from Attending Berea Good Courses that Appeal to the Prospective StudentNow Is the Time to Come There are many cases in which boys and girls wish to go away from homo to school and their parents are unwilling to spare them and help them theIthoIUon to go It Is a happy state of affairs indeed when parents and children both do sire the same thing It Is well for parents to remember torII cation The first words ot Bercas charter are In order to promote tho cause of Christ It is our pray er and desire that every student shall bo sent home wiser and more earn oat in religious things and more ready to tako hold ot Christian work at homo than when ho came The greatest Christian leaders of the country In all the religious bodiesI believe In Bcrca and pray for it Parents should know also thatI BoVca cares for the health of Its stu dents The college has a naturally healthful location Our water supply comes from mountain springs and is brought In Iron pipes Dr Cowloy gives his entire time not so much to curing sick students as to keep ing all the students welL Wo do not believe there could bo found anywhere 1365 young people with better health and showing more sound growth and development than those who attended Borca last year Parents should study Into tho mat ter of tho different kinds of educa tion which Heron offers Of course you understand that a young man or a young woman who is expecting to follow tho calling of a teacher should take ono of the courses In the Nor mal Department And of course it Is well known that a young man who wishes to teach advanced subjects or to havo tho really best preparation for studying to bo a lawyer doctor or minister should first take the long course ot the academy and college But besides these there aro a good many other courses which aro better for some people There Is tho Home Science course in which a young woman learns all about housohould management care of tho sick dressmaking etc bo sides something of music and other subjects suitable for the mistress of a good family There Is tho Business School with Its bookkeeping commercial arith metic and typewriting There Is tho School of Agriculture which shows tho young men how to mako moro money out of tho farm It has boon worth hundreds of dollars to many a boy just to spend one winter in this school There will bo two classes this winter One will stu PALACE MEAT MARKET Fresh and cured meats Call for what you want and get what you call for Highest market price paid for hides furs butter eggs and chickens JCWd Building Corner Main and Richmond Street 0petI1er I Bleeisess Da lfA U n ROBERTS Prop rt dy about the crops which are best indifferent soils the rotation of crops selection of seed Ulago gathering and marketing The other class will study such things as tho general man agement of a farm tho buldlnga fences drains tools stock the keeping of accounts and farmIng for profitThere is tho School of Carpentry It Is a shame that so much of our fine lumber has to bo sent hundreds of miles away where there are skill ed carpenters and mechanics to make It Into furniture There Is tho School of Nursing Young women who learn to care for tho sick can do fully as much na doctors In saving life and promoting tho comfort of thesefriends and neighbors and can earn much more than by teaching school There Is the School of Music All Boron students have Instruction In singing without extra cost and girls who have a good car for music can In a few terms learn how to play tho cabinet organ for the dcllghtof tho homo circle and the Sunday School and can become able to give lessons to others when they return to their homesIf OU have over noticed tho fami lies who have sent children to Be rea you have seen that It has been a benefit to the whole household Every member of the family has learned more or less of what was going on In Borca They havo had something good to think about and talk about all through the term and they hate been proud and glad when the son nr daughter graduated and came home vlth a diploma- Thousands of people will bo glad twenty years hence that they start ed to school now THE WEEK IN WASHINGTON Continued from ant page the Japanese Minister was greatly tickled President Taft with his us ual tact however having been called upon previously to address the Inter national Peace Society allayed tho fears of the people by telling them that ho bad once been Secretary of War and that his views as to the nations ability to cope with any pos slble enemlues were quite different from those of the author ot tho sup posed reportThe Cause for War But oven the President Is not able to entirely eradicate tho feeling of fear that possesses the people of some of tho unprotected districts of our do main The Californians are rather po rullarly susceptible to this feeling of terror possibly because they feel MI far away from the heart of the nation Tho sensation reached its anticlimax however when It was discovered that its possible origin was In tho refusal of some of the belles of Pasadena Cal to dance with tho officers of the Japanese fleet who were visiting the gol den coasta just cause for war on the part ot that highly sensitive na tion Check to Whitewash What has assumed almost tho pro portion of another sensation but in this caso confined rather to tho lim its of Congress itself was tho refusal of ono member of the nubcorn mlttoo ot tho Loriuier Investigation Committee to agree to tho committees thorough whitewashing of the 1111 nois Senator This gentleman who has the courage ot his convictions and who absolutely refuses to make concessions to his colleagues Is Sen ator Frazier of Tennessee who has boon away from Washington most of tho week but left a statement declar ing that ho could not acquit Lori mor of tho charges against him and that there was abundant evidence of Irregularity in his election His action has thrown consternation into the ranks of those who were endeavoring to got a vindication for Mr Lorimer and now it seems that tho whole matter will como up for discussion not only before the committee at largo but before tho Senate as a thole a proceeding which the Sena tor will never bo able to live down whatever the result of tho discussion may bo Lodge and Aldrich Tumble On tho tariff which is tho most momentous subject that confronts the present session and which will bo tho undoing or tho making ot the next Congress and the Democratic party as well It must bo said that there Is beginning to bo a little crys tallzatlon of sentiment Senator Cum mins of Iowa has been advocating a now rule for both houses of Con gress that will act as a kind ot closure against the revision of tho tariff In toto In tho discussion which followed his resolution he forced both Senator Lodge and Senator Ald rich to commit themselves to revision by schedule or by subject This is considered to be a real conquest on tho part of tho Insurgents A Shock to Decorum An interesting feature of the tariff discussion was the part taken by Mr Cummins colleague the successor to tho lamented Senator Dolllvor Sen ator Lafe

what of tho next Congress Why the administration is I making an Impression Tho Insurgents havo made art Impression and tho Democrats who will be In the ma jority in the lower houso are taking note will try to profit by their admlnjIstraUon Mr Bryan Tho Taft administration must bo credited if not for a tariff bill that Is satisfactory or a com plete fulfillment cf tho partys pledges with the Initiation of the movement for a reduction by schedules and not only havo the insurgents forced tho standpatters to concede this point but tho polling of the now Congress by the New York Herald seems to establish tho fact that a great majority of the Democrats while advocating a tariff for revenue only are com- mUted to tho policy of revision by subjects This will bo a great legislative gain and the Republicans cer tainly may claim the credit for this achievementMr Clark Concedes The prospective speaker of the new Congress Mr Clark has issued a statement in which he commits him self to this policy and one other which is possibly ot as much import ancoho announces himself In favor of a committee on committees thus acknowledging his willingness to stand for the speakershlp with most ot tho

gathered In the College Chapel to enjoy the rendition of Han dels oratorio The Messiah The rendition this year far eclipsed any previous record Perhaps this was largely due to tho tireless work on tho part of Professor rugby partlyI to tho patient faithful work great chorus which has been in train- Ing for the past four months partly to the splendid support given by the orchestra and Miss Wales skillful work at the piano and lastly to theI Cincinnati quartette who not only ably carried the sojo party ot tho evening but were most liberal in their support throughout the chorus work The service reverent in Itself was doubly impressive from the fact that requestIedplause until tho program was completed Very often the impression from such a selection as Ho Shall Feed His Flock or tho beautiful Pastoral Symphony Is completely spoiled by an outburst of vulgar applause which completely breaks tho current of thought so ne cessary to the full of a masterpiece such as The Messiah Tho soloists from Cincinnati were as follows Mrs Antoinette WernerWest So prano Miss Amanda Maull Contralto Mr Joseph Schenke Tenor Mr Stanley Baughman Basso It would be difficult to discrimi nato In these four soloists all were artists ot high order in their chosen voiceMr Rigbys face wore an expres sion of pleased satisfaction as his many friends gathered around him at the close to congratulate him on the excellent work of the evening IN OUR OWN STATE Continued from ant page becauso we are Intolerant of each others opinions and so drive those away who do not believe or think as we think But tho press ot the state Is nearly a unit in ascribing tho small percentage of Increase and tho actual decrease in tho forty counties to the night rider troubles and our bad tax laws FIGURES ON THEM For a number of years wo havo heard much about the conditions of tho mountains being a disgrace to tho state and the feuds and general lawlessness retarding immigrationI and tho location of capital within our borders But the census gives us the figures on them Nearly all of tho I mountain counties havo made substan tial gains In population The fact Is the mountain region is the only district in the state

turned in other respects and the figures will toll some more things PROGRESS IN THE MOUNTAINS But wo do not have to go to the census figures to learn of tho pro gross In the mountains From all sides como tho reports of great activ ity in manufacturing and mining and I railroad circles and there Is an taua awakening along Intellectual lnes The new railroad from Wasota into Harlan County will soon

the fight In the state before the last preal dental election against Mr Taft and made his threats that the political heads of those who favored the then war secretary would bo forfeited It begins to look now like the threat is to be executed for Senator Bradley seems to be in the saddle and from all appearances President Talt will agree to the ousting from office of the very men who saw to it that the Kentucky delegation would stand by him In the national convention Postmaster Walker of Lexington is I the last to feel the effect of his friendship for Mr Taft and must step down and out at the behest of tho Senator and his crowd This Is something new under the sun FIGHTERS OF THE PLAGUE I Tho annual business meeting of the directors of the Association of the Study and Prevention of

down to a table and they could see by dim light of an iII emell ing lamp through the thick atmosphere of tho place reeking brutes fighting with fists or knives for a cup ot fermented drink while others slept with closed flats under the tables Balkls perceiving some salt fish hanging from the rafters of tho roof said to her com panlonI should like to eat of that salt fish with pounded onions Balthaar ordered tho dish but when she had finished eating ho discovered that ho had taken no money with him Ho took little con cern and thought they could go out without paying But tho Innkeeper barred their way calling him a slave and calling her a donkey at which Balthasar knocked him down with his fist Some of tho men with uplifted knives rushed upon the two strangers But tho black king seizing hold of an enormous postlo used for pounding Egyptian onions crushed two ot his aggressors and compelled tho others to retreat He felt Balkls by his side which made him Invincible The friends of the Innkeeper not daring to approach hurled at him from tho back of the shop oil jars and cups lighted lamps and oven tho enormous brass pot wherein a whole shoep was stowing mho pot fell with a crash on Balthaaars head and split It Ho was stunned for an instant but gathering up his strength he hurled tho pot back with such vigor that the weight of it was Increased ton fold The crash of the

tho two lying on the moss Then they tied them to the tall of a donkey and went along their way with them The black king was hurling threats of death at them but Balkls although slightly shivering In tho cold air of dawn seemed to smile at some Inward thought They walked through barren solitudes until the heat of tho day began to make Itself felt Sho was now laughing and tho brigand chief having asked her tho reason why sho replied I am laughing at tho thought of having you all hanged Truly my beauty exclaimed tho brigand chief that Is strange talk in the mouth of a scrubber of pots And your black gallant be will probably help you t- On hearing those Insulting words Balthasar was incensed with ragi ho throw himself upon tho brigand and squeezed his neck so hard that he nearly strangled him But tbo brigand stuck his knife Into him and the poor king rolling on the ground looked at Balkls with eyes in which all life soon seemed to bo extinct III But now there came a big roar of armed

trying you I replied taking Deafest sayso as my author ty for advancing this opinion She had n right to do that Every girl does It In fact Sho nearly tried mo too far be said doggedly But Im sorry It all happened and If I bad known I wouldnt have risked my happiness for tho world 1 Thero didnt seem much more that I could say after that and I gave up tryingWell anyway its a deuced shame I ended I must go up and see what my wife thinks about It Meanwhile you mIght bo trying to persuade Barnes over there I smiled at tho still elderly gentleman on the hearthrug to give us more time It cant be twenty rain utes to ono now and Im afraid It would take wore time than that to per suade a certain young lady to change her mind even if Dearest were to make tho attempt But I got no answering smile from Barnes I have no voice In the matter whatever ho said I am hero merely to carry out the instructions of my client Mrs James to see that her Injuno 4 tJons In regard to the condition upon which Mr Terhuno is to Inherit tho piece of property In abeyance are obeyed faithfully and to the letter laving finished this unfeeling speech which ho had couched In as formal phraseology as If be had been address Ing judgo and jury instead of poor old Arch and myself ho lapsed into mod tatlve alloDco My friend perceiving that there was no help to bo had quarter turned imploringly to milGo up and see what you can do Vincent he Baldtheros a good chap With all tho pleasure in life I re plied And I may persuade her to relent who knows So cheer up old fellow And I loft them What is all this about Terhuno I asked excitedly bursting Into my wifes room without my usual preliminary Knock And qulto forgetting Williams caution that she did not wish to be disturbedDo mean to say that she has really refused tho old boy1 I thought you said But thero I stopped for there on tho floor with her bend in Uearcsts lap was Agatha Sixth and I caught a glimpse of a little tear J stained oheek that smote my heart with a guilty sense that there wore two sides to every question always and that something hero was very I wrong Will you be kind enough began J my wife She bad been going to aslc me to leave the room I knew but ItI wasnt ncocsxary Agathfl Sixth got to her feet r H sudden and with a murmur of aruUttdo to my wife slipped past me with averted taco and fled down the corridor to her room Wo i beard the door bang in tho distance I looked at Dearest and Dearest looked at mat I tL Jf Its the cruelest thing I ever heard of she said speaking first and I should think you and your worthy friend would be proud of your work Yes thats Just what she said I never was so taken aback in my life Dear est speaking so to me Why was I to blame I wanted to know And fancy referring to old Arch whom Dearest had f ays petted and mado even moro of than I have as my worthy friend Really H was nmazlnl But my dear girl I said It Isnt my work and Terhunos moro to be pitied than to bo blamed as far as I can eel lies awful unlucky Ill ad mlt but after all making lovo to Agatha frat on the sly isnt a hanging matter Jail- Vel7 well I said Dont answer me if you dont choose and Ill go fast enough I dont caro to stay any long er But I think youre making n great fuss over nothing and I dont see that tho misfortunes of our friends Is ex cuso enough for a row between us at alii I said this with much dignity and went toward the door Reaching It I throw a parting shot as I went Besides I said you know youll have to see me pretty soon In spite of yourself It will be time for luncheon In a quarter of an hour and I suppose you intend to come down She didnt answer and I went down the corridor and descended the stairs In considerable of a temper I admit By Jovol 1 said to Terhune whom I found waiting anxiously for mo at the foot of the ItalraU I were you I wouldnt waste any more time over Agatha Sixth I She and my wife are In league should think to prevent you from Inheriting a fortune Tho girl cares for you I know Dearest told mo as much but thoyro just contrary enough the pair of them to watt until Its too lato to get your aunts property before they admit it to you Somo Quixotic notion about love for lovos sake only seems to have so possessed them that they will not actually be content until theyve forced you to sac rlflco the property All womens non Covered the Pittance In a Little Less Than an Hour sense too I say Theres no reason why you shouldnt have bad both I But since theyre so pigheaded about it upon my word Id outwit them yet If I wore you l was thoroughly excited and sore or perhaps I wouldnt have made this suggestion I wouldnt let them cheat moot my rights that way This is a chance in a hundred to make yourself rich for life I wouldnt wait for them if I were you Id go ahead r d ask Agatha First before tho times up Shod have you in a moment Im not so sure replied Arch gazing longingly at his watch as If to hold the minutes back by force Ills selfcontldenco was terribly shattered poor old chap I could see that It somethingIfor all that I was really fond of tho egoism that was so characteristic of him I had always delighted In his childish vanity Come Tcrhune I said bo a man Theres Miss Endlcott now Go and ask her before its too late Its a shame you should lose both tho girl and the fortune But to my astonishment Terhune whom I had always laughingly accused of being a mercenary beggar when It came to a question of marry ing did not take my sporting sugges ion at all well Great heaven Vincent ho ex claimed In a low tonso tone and turned on me almost as If Insulted by the Idea cant you let mo alone What do you suppose I want with my aunts beastly property If I have to get along without tho girl And by the way he said it I saw at once that thero was only ono girl for him and that when It came to the point ho found in spite ol all his old caution and calculating spirit that leva was tho only thing In the world that counted after all Great Scotland I thought to my self as I grasped the true Inwardness of this fact If the old boy Isnt actu ally In love I didnt think ho had It in him I Tho Idea occurring to me seriously for the first tlmo only that moment and I saved up the Incident to tell Dearest when I should got tho chance Somehow I had been so buss trying to help Terhuno gain his aunts promised legacy that I had never had tame to consider that there might bo a sentimental side to the affair It bad all seemed so much like a gamo to me It had been such a jolly lark to find myself mixed up In an affair of such an unusual description and Arch had so tong accustomed me to his mercenary attitude toward life that I bad found myself qulto readily talking and advis lug in a manner that I would not have thought of doing If I had myself been tho principal In the affair instead of Arch This long explanation I make merely because I could not feel myself freo from a sense of mortification when it bad been so abruptly proven to me that my friend was after all capable 4J f Y of the finer feelings I myself I relbukedfor Archibald Increased tho more with the sense of my injustice toward him But at this moment as we waited like two Mr Mlcawbers at the toot of tho stairs for something or other to turn up a footman approached and in formed me that there was some one to sea me Some ono who bad Just come Ir an automobile and was waiting at the carriage entrance In his machine CHAPTER XII I hurried round to that part of the castle followed more mechanically than inquisitively by Tcrhune and saw on the stoop under tho portcochore through the wideopen doors a slight young follow of about Archs build with a dark anxious face just relin quishing a long duster to his chauf four But even before I had perceived who it was my eyes wandered back of him and took in the automobile hod just stepped from with a Vaguo sense o having seen It somewhere before But Its owner surprised me more for it was Murray Brancepeth of all people What in thunder brought him hero I wondered I hadnt seen him in a year of Sundays I Hello Vincent ho cried on see- Ing us And old Tcrhuno tool And he caught our hands in a largo exuber ant grip Too exuberant I could seo Terhuno thought for he was frowning and I must say I felt Inclined to resent Branccpeths familiarity myself for I bad never known the fellow well when ho followed his handshake by a great slap on my shoulder But by his next words it was explained and excused In tho same moment as were many other things that had happened lately Wheres Agatha First bo cried Its all right now Miss Slmplln has eloped and we can get married An enigmatical speech enough Ill admit and of course I dont mean to say that it alone was the means of en- lightenIng Tcrhune and myself as to the new turn this rather complicated and stubborn affair of his aunts property bad taken It was only after a number of ques tions had been asked and answered that wo understood him When it ap peered that ho Brancepeth had been In love with Miss Endicott and she with him ever since tho first Castle Wyckhoff houscparty but that there was an obstacle to their marriage which prevented their acknowledging their attachment which obstacle con listed of tho Inexorable determination lof Branccpeths solo relative a wealthy uncle that ho should marry a certain Miss Slmplln an heiress herself and a neighbor of his uncles Brancepeth bad not the faintest In tention of marrying tho lady of his un dos choice or anyone other than the lady of his own but was still unable openly to disregard that uncles wishes having been entirely dependent upon him all his life The young lady In question Miss Slmplln had now do cided matters for him by eloping with a poor young squire in splto of a tacit agree nt with her father that she would consider favorably tho suit of young Murray And by thus boldly so curing her own happiness the young lady had at the same time opened tho way for that of Branccpotb a deed for which I thought when I heard the tale she deserved the commendation of the community I like good sport But this opinion of mine In regard to Miss mpllns escapade did not apparently jibe with that of Urancepeths uncle for as our visitor proceeded with his tale wo learned that he was Indeed so enraged by tho very act which so delighted us all that when his nephew emboldened by the tidings of the elopement confided to him his attach ment for Miss EndIcott his aggrieved relative bad seized with enthusiasm the chance of proving to the scornful and fugitive heiress that she was un regretted lie only awaited the appearance of Agatha First it seemed to take her to his arms and enshrine her brows with a diamond tiara that was to flaunt defiance and triumph before the jealous eyes of the poor squires wife whenever the two might meetIThis exciting crisis In Brancepeths romance having developed only that morning it was friend Murray to his machine and on his way to Castle Wyckhoff without loss of time and we were not at all surprised when ho boasted that ho had covered the din tan co between his uncles place at the other end of the county and Wyckhoff castle in a little less than an hour We had just succeeded In grasping theso details of our friends love affair though ho had not given them in full as I have but had rather sketched the story generally and rapidly when Dearest appeared upon the scene and tho whole wonderful tale had to bt told againTO DE CONTINUED Kickers What is odious but noise and people who scream and bewail People

THE CHURCH Continued from firth page message of tho gospel Thla Is duo to the enormous population and the scarcity of workers Only by a largo multiplication ot missionaries and money can these even who are FO near bo given tho knowledge they so much need It the world Is therefore to bo filled with the knowledge of Christ there must bo a practical union of forces Economy demands It Wherever there are mqro churches than necessary all suffering by competition there Is waste of money human life and power In many cities and towns there are too many churches while In others and In rural districts there are too few or none Such waste Is dun to the unwillingness of Chris tian people to sacrifice their sectarian pride for the common good This condition Is clearly contrary to the Ideal ot perfect oneness set forth by Jesus and explains the lack of pow or in hosts of churches Wherever such waste exists there also are us ually found jealousies and other sins abhorrent to God They cut the nerve of church efficiency In order to save this awful waste and to direct tho resources ot the church toward unoccupied field un ity must bo made practical by the merging of bodies of Christians In the spirit of liberality and love s Another form of unity la that ex pressed In harmonious allotment cf territory to Jho different bodko and by frequent meetings of roprcaonta Uvea to discuss the common problems I and achievements Wherever such co operation Is denied because one de nomination disregards the rights and wishes of otlun waste sits In fric tion la developed and spiritual in- efficiencyI characterizes the work J There are many opportunities for tho practlc3 ofsuch unity and coopcra I tlon In many sections of the world Union institutions of learning have been founded In which tho converta lor several denominations are trained with a union faculty In tho produc- tlon of Christian literature publish ing houses are often made to BTVO many denominations In many places branches of the church having many features In common havo federated or organized one united body Thus In Japan all the Methodist bodies have merged all the Presbyterian bo dies have taken a similar stop and In South Indiana several widely differ ing bodies Including Congregational Ists Dutch Reformed and the Free church of Scotland havo formed a united church Enough progress hat also been made In North America to prove that union Is possible when 1 Christians realize tho value of coming together for the sake of efficiency In Canada practically every obstacle to organic union of Presbyterians Methodists and Congrcgatlonallsta has boon removed And where organic un ion la not considered doslrablo thojspirit of unity and tho practice of operation may accomplish much There Is a true spirit of danomlna f tlonallam Tho organization of a body of Christians holding common views Into a compact working unitIIs highly desirable By It they areIiIextendingof denominationalism It not In Its organization and its varying codes ot belief but rather In Ita rivalry its Insistence that Its beliefs only are worthy and true and Its Intolerance and harsh criticism of other bodies- of Chrlttlana holding with equal do votatlon other notions ot faith andIpolicy Not all truth Is possessed by one body Nor do the English speak Ing nations possess the knowledge If of all spiritual things Thom will lie new ot truth tho I JUaostern Is its pride and Intoleranco 4hI Isolation and Its refusal to allow to another what it claim for Itself viz tho right to sttq In its own way Its Interpretation of truth And this sin IB all tho greater because we all hold in common the great t virtues of Christs teachings Wo all believe In one God In ono Christ one Bible one Holy Spirit in the life death resurrection and ascension of Christ Wo believe In prayer for- givenen the communion of IIBU and tho life to come Herein lies thq duty to have one Spirit and to labor to- getherI In love however we may dif fer on other natters hold dear by I us Moreover our differences wore not created by Christ Why therefore I should wo allow thorn to destroy the unity of tho spirit and tho unity ot our cooperation The problem of evangelizing the world requires that wo work In actual unity of spirit and plan Tho evil of the world Is too vast varied and has too strong a hold on the passions I and wills of mankind to bo destroyed by a disunited Church Poverty andlIgnorance Idoltary and superstition rwhich now hold and bind almost countless millions of men and women can not bo removed except the full power of a united Christendom be applied through loving service There are In our time many agon eke whose very existence and service Indicate that the Christians of today are coming into real unity ot spirit The Federation of churches of America now unites practically all bodies So do tho Young Mefls and Young I Womens Christian Associations the Christian Endeavor Society tho Lay mens Missionary Movement the Young Peoples Missionary Movement the Worlds Student Christian Feder ation tho Homo Mission Council the Annual Conference of Foreign Mission Boards and several other agencies Toleration has In many ways given evangelistic services and tho uplift way to lovo and united labors In ot needy classes And finally tho World Missionary Conference In Edin burgh last Juno put cooperation on Its highest level by uniting Christians of all names anti nations In a great council ot war for the extension of Christs Kingdom thruout tho whole I world through Ioving and united ser viceAnd thus our text Is now being proven before our eyes Let us SIR therefore lay aside pride and Intoler ance and grasp hands with any and nil followers of the divine Christ uniting that we may receive and wield the power of tho Holy Spirit and thus make Christ known obeyed and loved in all tho earth t 1
