other. Miss Zara Clinton, the versatile comedienne, will sing her original march song "It's a Long Way

Is Imperative that we forget the rest
of mankind. To evangelize the world
is a later command. Today our business is to grasp tlie import of the
message of Jesus as it bears upon us
as individuals, and to heed the call
and to obey Is to follow the Instinct
of our nature that of "safety firBt."
The spiritual safety of others is to be
sought when we ore assured ot our
own safety.
I give briefly two thoughts ou the
1. It Is a command that sets before us
the highest good—"the Kingdom of
God." If you will read through Matt.
VI. you will find that Jesus deals with
prayer, values, and, strange to relate,
the things upon which wc lay most
emphasis, those very things He regards of but little moment. We
scheme and worry to get "treasures
on earth," Christ points to the ad
vantage of having "treasures in heaven." Wc ure over-anxious about tomorrow's needs, Christ says, "Every
day has trouble enough of its own"
CJOth Cent. N. T.) How we fret over
what we shall "eat" and "drink" nnd
"put on," Christ commands ue to
"seek first the Kingdom of God." The
importance of the former things are
not minimized, but only so spoken
of as to place In greater relief tlie
necessity of seeking the highest good
2. It Is a cummand not to buy but

German Position Su S'rong Tbat Capture Seemed Impossible —Advance Under Heavy Fire
I-ondon. Oct. 24.—(By mall.)—One
)f the signal achievements of British
bulldog pluck last week and one which
Is magnified tenfold when properly understood, was the success of General
French's army In taking the German
trenches north of Slssons. Tho news
came merely as an Incident of tho
battle all along the line and caused no
more than a ripple of satisfaction. But
to those who understood how the Germans had succeeded tn entrenching
themselves on thc sloping hills, the
feat stands out* as one of the strikingly brilliant bits of attack which overcome almost Insurmountable obstacles.
It Is Interesting, perhaps, for the
layman to realize something of the
task that the British were called upon
to perform. To the fire-burned, smoke-
blackened troops and their officers It
has all become more or less a matter
of grim, determined routine, so far as
the nctual work of dislodging an
enemy Is concerned, but to the average Individual the odds wlll doubtless
seem one hundred to one against success when the conditions of attack and
defence are outlined.
charge the climbing Britishers to
drive them down thc slopo. Here tt Is
an attack of crouching, ready Germans
with a maximum of rest protection and
the advantage of being uphill, against
Britishers shot at by artillery, infantry, machine guns and rapid lire guns
and with ranks thinned by the terrific explosion of concealed mines.
It seems, Indeed, as If there could bc
only one result, and that only by n
miracle could the attacking force escape. That Ib the German theory, and,
on paper, ninety-nine persons out of a
hundred persons agree It ls sound.
But In practice at Solssons the British
bulldog did not try to escape. He
just kept on coming, to Judge by the
results, and took over the German
trenches for himself.
(By Cleric)
"Seek first the kingdom of God."—
Matt 6:83.
We are all, I trust, seeking safety.
None Is so reckless as to deny the necessity of taking heed to It; none but
fools avoid preparation to secure It.
To seek to be safe Is a law of life;
to neglect lt Is spiritual, physical, and
financial suicide.
The moment a crash comes, ln thc
money market some men go to the
wall. Tha careful man seeks, as soon
as signs appear ominous, to safeguard
his Interests, and tries to "break
even." For him that Is the safety line.
When warning pains strike ub we
send hurriedly for tlio physician. Why?
We want to be safe.   Death ha* thc
of Jesus to "seek.' Salvation then,
cannot be bought; but lt may be
sought, and the seeker is promised
that none ever sought tn vain. Lowell

At thc devil's booth all things are
