There is a unity here manifested—
an absolute unity of mind and pur-
pose, because tbe Redeemer sought
not to do Hia own will, but the I-ether's will. Hence they were one. even

Hear Jesus again: Alter His death,
alter His resurrection, when speaking
to Mary. He aaid, "I have not yet
ascended lo My Father. • • • 1 ascend
to My Father and to your Father; to
My God and to your God, (John xx.
17 ) "Say ye ol Him whom the rather hath sanctified and aent into the
world, Thou blaaphemeat, because 1
aaid. I am the Son cf Godf -John
Perhaps the strongest testimony of
the Scriptures respecting the exalted
position held by the Redeemer is the
word o! our Lord Jesua Himself,
"That all men ahould honor the 8on,
even as they honor the Father." (John
v S3 ) This is in harmony with the
thought of the Father and the Son
being of one mind, one will, one purpose; but it distinctly ahowe tbat they
are separate persons, otherwise we
could not reverence the one aa we reverence the other.
Our text ia to the point. It declares
the faith once delivered to the sainte,
and says nothing about the trinity-
three Gods in one person. 'To us
there is one God, the Father. The
context shows that the Apostle ia contrasting our faith with the faith of
others who recogniae gods many and
lords many. We Christians, rays the
Apostle, recognite only One Supreme
God of all gods-"The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, aa St.
Peter styles Him.-I. Peter i. 3.
Our text declares that all things are
ol or proceed from the Fattier, lie
is the Source and Fountain, the rather ot mercies, "from whom cometh
every good and perfect gift." Hia
great (lilt to mankind was the Gift of
His Son, our Lord Jesua Christ, whom
He sent into the world to be man a
Three Gods, equal in power and
glory, could nt', be said to send each

Heah. when He had offered up pray:
ars and supplications with strong crying* and tears unto Him (Jehovah)
that, was able to save Him Iriiin death,
was heard in that Ho feared." (He.
brews v, 7.) An angel was sent to
comfort Hi... and to assure Him ol
the Father's love, that the Fattier had
not forsaken Him. that He was well
pleasing in His sight, and lhat He

Re Mr. B. H. Short's communication
of last week, it is unite evident to us
thnt he has purposely uiiscnnstrtHM
the Intention and the spirit of our
editorial of two weeks ago, in that,
instead of answering the statement
we made "Thut wc were surprised to
see how much the pulpit is being
used aB an advertising medium tn
reach the public", he eulnirizes upon
the (|uniities of the institutions WO
based our remarks upon. Wc re
framed from Riving any names of
these and also nny names in roni.ee
tlon therewith ns we hold them in to
much respect to have brought them
into public discussion, Mr Short
taken exception to the phrase we used
"the minister exhorted the cotigregu
tlon" and goes on to say "That
all he said nfter mentioning the fact
that thc agent wus here, wus that
he hoped the people would give all
the support pOHBihle as It was a
worthy object". [f Mr. Short will
turn to Webster's dictionary ho will
find for himaelf that the term we
used is Identically the Hame with the
spirit of the one he quotes—BO why
he niliiiiiil take exception is more
than we can under stand, to us tbey
are Identical. In the ense of the col
lege he refers to Mr. Short uaks
"Why ahould not Its representative
he offered the uhc of tbe pulpit to
state theae advantages und suggest
we send our children for higher edit
cation." This Is nlso a denomjnat
lonal institution, nupported by the
Baptist   churches   tlnnnclally and by
not such a college use "proper and
legitimate means employed by older
and perhaps better coHeyes than the
one he refers to and send to every
member of the churches through the
mails, a circular or pamphlet illustrating and describing the virtues of
uch an institution'1 This would get
the particulars into the hands of the
public and intheir own homes, they
could then study ont the advantages
to he gained from attending such a
college and NnT have resource to the
use of the pulpit us a cheap method
of doing their business. In attending
church in Cranbrook, us in other
places, we have repeatedly been
struck with the lengthy announcements given from the pulpit, when
these are i n connection with the
church or church work In the city
wc believe it to be right ; but
when it comes to intruding other
subjects thnt could easily he announced by more laudatory means then it
is about time some one raised their
voice und said "Stop". We might
inform Mr. Short, thnt after the appearance ol the "Prospector" we
were told personally by one of
perhaps the oldest and most prominent member in his own church, that
he was in hearty accord with the
views wi; expressed in our former article.

celebrated their decoration services in

by paying tbeir respects to the memory of those deceased brothers, who
have departed for the land of the unknown; and in tbe evening marching
trom the K. of P. Hull to1 the Methodist church where Rev. W. Klson Dun

speak the three great words of the

These words are strongly emblematic of the great teachings of the
world—Humanity and Christianity."

Rev. W. Stephen's Ordination
An event which will live long in
the memory of those present, took
place at St. Andrews Presbyterian
Church, Wardner, on Wednesday last*
The Rev. W, Stephens who previously laboured successfully in Saskatchewan and Alberta, as an Ordained
Catechlst was granted full status at
tbe late general assembly in Edmonton. A special meeting of the Hast
Kootenny Presbytery wns called In
Wardner for the purpose of his ordin
ation.    The Rev,  Mr. (.rant,  nf Kernie   presided    and  wns supported by
the    Rev.   Mr  Lena,    of  Waldo,  Rev. !
Thompson   and   Elder   John   Laurie
from   Oranbrook,     The   church   was;
beautifully decorated for tbt? occasion I
and   an   excellent congregation took |
part in the proceeding,   After singing I
tbe   Do-tology,  Mr.  Grant offered an
effective   prayer   and called upon Mr.
McLean   to    read   the    lesson.     The j
choir  rendered Sullivan's Hymn "01
the     Homeland"    most    artistically. J
Mr.   Thompson preached a  very ele- i
gant sermon pointing out the duties i
of the congregation to ths minister.!
The   usual    questions   were nsked of
. the candidate,  the  audience  [u,lowed
, the proceedings with prayerful Interest.   Then followed the laying on of1
the hands by the  Prcsbytos and the
declaration  by  Mr.  Grant "I ordain
j you,    Mr.    Stephens, in the name of
i the Presbytery to the ministry of the
Gospel,"     Mr.    Grant addressed tbe
j congregation In words that will never   be   forgotten,    He remarked tbnt I
these   were his farewell  remarks nnd |

Mr. Stephens has bad wide experience in dealing with men nf all
shades which has added wonderfully
to his usefulness in the Wardner district. His musical attainments have
considerably aided him in his church
life. The church is now free from
debt nnd the improvements to the
Heats has added greatly both in appearance and comfort.

Carnegie Turned Down
Edmonton, Altn., Aug. 15—Sixty
thousand dollars is not sufficient in-
! ducement to the members of the
| board to carve tbe name of Andrew
| Carnegie on the slab of stone over
j the entrance of a library that would
j meet the requirements of the city ot
I Edmonton. Accordingly, they adopted a resolution at their last executive meeting declining the offer and
conditions and turned the matter
over to A. G. Harrison, a member of
i tbe board of commissioners, for final
1 disposal. Mr. Carnegie's original of-
l fer was based upon a population ot
| about half of what it is today. When
(informed thut the city has a population ot 53,383, according to a civic
i census completed on July 6tb, Mr.
Carnegie replied that he felt compelled to take tbe figures compiled a year
ago hy the Dominion enumerators
and would limit his grant to |60,000.
The library board has recommended
to the commissioners tbat they consider the question of submitting a by-
iaw to the rute-payerB for the raising of sufficient funds to construct
the first unit of a municipal-owned
public library.

More Men Than Women In the World
Of recent, yearn tho custom ot making n systematic census of the population has become well established
and It is now possible to gain a fairly
accurate Idea ot conditions all the
world over.
Some of the figures now cited in
regard to thla matter are Interesting.
The world's total population is estimated at 1,7110.0(10.00". out of which
the proportion of the sexes Is known
for 1,0:18.000.000. the ratio being 1.000
males to 9!0 females. The ratio
varies considerably In different
places. In Europe thtre were for
every 1.000 men, 1.027 women: Africa
1.(145; America, 004; Asia, 001; Aits
