The relations existing between the
material and spiritual are intricate and
transcending. We spunk of thoin existing in relation with one another
but we do not menu by this that the
one is iu juxtaposition lo the other fur
such is net their true connection, but
one uf perfectly lilting union : bound
each to each, the one within the other,
giving meaning and direction to both.
Tin's is speaking of theiu it:; they lire
known to us by experience. As tbe
spiritual ami material are known to
mini in himself they are indissoluble
knit together uud upon lho harmonious working of the one within
tho other iu the whole tapestry
of his existence depend the fullest development of his noblest capacities.
To take away from niiii tho requisite
amount of material possessions for
comfortable livelihood is to degrade
nud stint bim mid thus prevent his
progress spiritually as well as physically. When man is deprived of his
spiritual advantages we tiiul his true
progress is likewise marred. It is
only where lhe spiritual development
is the object of the material concerns
of man that the highest nud fullest
life is found-the highest culture and
civilization. It may lie true that certain amour! of material success may
follow a country or people regardless
of spiritual development or progress
but ut best it can only lie partial, and
temporary ut, thu'. That there is uuy
Micsess at all is because mil ure does
not refuse I ogive returns when worked
along certain nf her lines whether he
who so works is conscious or not of
the fur transcending significance and
meaning which these havo when properly worked out other than the mere
miterinl and sordid purpose to which
they are put by bim It is only when
man uses the material universe anil
her laws lo the development of his
widest anil richest capacity we feel
ussiirred they are liuiliiig the highest
expression of their purpose or end.
Man Iieing llie highest creature nud
susceptible of the widest development
of nil creatures we think that using I
lhe laws ol nature fur the bringing
about of the best conditions of bis life
in society is utilizing them to the]'
Ktibliiiiest purpose known to him. It
is true these Hues, which are hut sections of the inliuite lines that weave
the web of existence, arc themselves
expressions of the inliuite mind and it
is lieciiime they are so mini is capable
of eternal progress along tliein. Man
finds his progress conditioned ou the
discovery mil adjustment of bis own
wants lo the natural workings of these
laws. When he lenrns to take advantage of them he learns his freedom and
his freedom is bound up with them.
As fur as he is ignorant ho is enslaved
hut in every act of  knowledge another
They   must lie uf   such n natui-'j as to
admit of mail's freedom being found in
them     There must exist between iliem
a relation of compatibility and on this
relation depends mini's discovery.     A
mutual  cooperation   is found   in   lho
nature uf each - in the laws uf   nature
which are already  expressions uf reason and in   the rational Intelligence uf
J iniiii.      If   these conditions  were not
wrapped  up ill the constitution of tlie
material   universe  man wuuld in vain
seek for tlie realiza' ion of   his ���.rue self
iu litis world, anil we mny believe thut
1 thu order and linos  which ,vu Iiml per-
Initiating   existence   here  do   not cense
I where wu fail nuw to follow them.    In
all   things   we  liud   that   Ihi-j mutual
co-operative relation is the essential iu
all nature  which   makes  possible  the
order and unity of the whole.     Where
there is  instinct for one  thing or another  in tlie   lower   forms  of   life we
Iiml   realities   corresponding   thereto.
In the bee tliere is tbe instinct to gather honey tu lay up fur future consumption, and   from   flowers and plants wo
liud   there is  honey   fur it lu gat ber.
Where there  is the tin of   Hsb adapted
to service iu witter there is water for it
to swim in      The wing uf  bird made
tu liy in air finds (avotable conditions
in the air to Ily.      But none ol   these
instincts  could liud tin ir  complete realization   unless   tliere wits n. mutual
relation   existing   between   tbem and
their   corresponding    realities.      'lhe
same is true uf   mall in relation to his
potentialities   and   their   realization.
Though the potentialities of his developed life are   intuitive   iu  him yet he
could nut  Und their complete realization apart   from the mutual cu operative conditions  found  in the  material
of thu universe. It. is therefore evident
thut between the material and spiritual
exist the  closest   relations anil which
relation  makes  possible fur man progress in his true life.    Development iu
either one  would Iks nbnoriniil   while
contemporaneous development  is normal,   therefore   good.      When     man
gui hers or  accumulates wealth fur its
own   sake  his  energies  are  expended
meiininglofsli ;   but when be tiucuuill-
lahs wealth tc afford him leisure lu be
tilled with   thu   highest   activiti s of
spiritual   reason   accumulation has a
sublime end in view.     As the hording
of the material is meaningless without
having  fur its  object the  intellectual
development so the material in itself or
alone would be meaningless.    Thu material iu itself is nothing.    It, does nut
iu reality exist  aplilt   from   the mind.
It is but a shadow uf the real;   but a
shadow true to lift) - to reality, fur nothing can  lietter represent thu real iu

still unpaid for, upon the slim third
tinner of her small luft hand.
one ntternoon, however, it chanced
that the two were sitting alone together side by side, and Montmorency
was emboldened to let his arm
slip down from the back of th-*
sofa upon which it had been renting,
and encircling lur slender wuist, he
bent forward to press a loi-er-like salute
upon the tempting cheek,
The first  attempt at gallantry was
met by a sudden and stinging repulse.
I With the vigorous box which fell upon
his ear it seemed, tor a iHon"-"t. that

Then, as things righted themselves and
' his scattered wits returned, Mnnrnior-
I ency saw his fiancee erect befure bim,
with angry eyes and flaming face.
I     "Don't ibiro to touch me !   Do you
1 hear ?" she cried.   'Oh, I hate you 1   I
hate yon !   What shall I do ?"
I     "Yuu hate me," Montmorency echoed,
in n slow, puzzled way, "and yet you're
| going to marry ine I   Why, what does
, it all mean"."
Her slim fine-era were interlacing
| "I cannot help It." she said, half defiantly, half in desperation. "They will
| have it so ! But, until then���until then,
I nt least���yon shall uot touch me I I
I will not permit it I"
A great i.���'ut broke in npon Montmorency's slow Intelligence, and with it ail
buiiuuw oi lu-K-utuiuiic ilieii away.
I     "Poor girl!   I'm sorry," he said, Bim*

I ably.   Isn't theie something wc can do?"
I     After this  breezy  little  episode, to
I -which, fortunately,  there hud been no
witnesses,   tranquility   was   restored.
Nay, mure,   n  certain cordial  understanding seemed to exist between the
engaged couple, which the fond parents
of the bride-elect regarded with evident
Instead of avoiding Montmorency, as
she had done at first, Edna now actually
betrayed impatience if he fuiied to come
nt tho accustomed hour. Mysterious
letters frequently passed between them;
and the girl uo longer invented impossible excuses to avoid tete-a-tete drives
with her betrothed in his jaunty turnout.
One benntlfnl, bright Septemlier
morning, however, Montmorency, appearing rather earlier than nsnil, received the intelligence thnt ti sudden indisposition wonld prevent bis lair fiancee from iiccoiiipitnyiiig hiin upon bis
drive. Alter expressing much regret
ami promising to rui um in the hope of
seeing her biter ill the day, Montmorency drove away alone. Once out of
sight of the hotel, he whipped up his
horse and fairly flew along the level
road, until, just l-c''uiidu turning. Edna
herself appeared, all smiles and sudden
blu.shes. lie paused then, but umy lu. ;
enough to help bur np beside him, and,
more swiftly than ever spun away until lie drew' up at last before a quiet

A hurried, ecstatic conversation followed, and then the trio hastened np
me aisle together to where the forewarned minister, with his witnesses,

Tbe marriage service wns begun, nnd
nt the question: "Who giveth this womnn to be married to tins man?" Mont-
luu.'fiicy steppetl forward, and witn uu
elegant air of importance and satisfaction, he placed the band of his beautiful betrothed iuto that of the other fellow.
The brief ceremony was ended, and
when they were again in the vestibule,
the smiling bride tnrne.1 to Montmorency with outstretched hands.
"You are more thin a gentleman,
you're n perfect angel!" she cried. "W e
never could have done it without you;
and���and���and���you mny kiss me now,
if you like!"
"It's nwfnlly hard on the dear old people," she continued regretfnlly. after
the short p-nse caused by Montmorency's now (permitted salnte. "Bnt they
can't hcl i forgiving their only child by

wanted to nee it accomplished iu their

I'd never be happy witb any one but
John, the dearest fellow in all the
world," smiling up at tbe radiant bridegroom, "though I must say, Montmorency, you ihi come next!"
John's outburst of hearty griititiido
was cut short by Montmorency's observation that train-time was fust approaching. So, having seated them in
the iiu,,' curt side by side, Montmorency
sprang np iu the groom's place behind,
nml thev iirnve away guyly tu the near
est railroad station.
At the very last minute Edna slipped
something into Montmorency's hand.
'1 in mi happy. 1 almost forgot it." she
said, "but here it is, uud I'm sure you'll
want it again very soon lor���you know
The train came rushing down its iron
pathway, paused a moment, und then
rolled on Us way, currying into their
new life these two so newlv bonnd together for better nr for wane, aim Montmorency was left standiiig ou the platform, twirling a sparkling ring between

I her old Western lover was an nnpless-

��� pareiiu never u.eaiued of thejiart which Montmorency had played in their daughter's ehipeiuent. His position, now, at
% best, was an awkward one, and be

n'ene at Saratoga oe speedily us pus-
But nt home ho found it even worse,
for there ho had to face his mothers

So one line morning, having actually
succeeded in persuading pretty Jenny
into following Edna's example, he boldly
presetted bis blushing brine to his astounded mother.
This, then, was the ondin-r. of her n'u-

old-timers  being present to meet their
pioneer pastor.    An abundance of good
things iu the way of refreshments had
been provided by the ladies,     Alter all
bad   satisfied tbe  wants of   the inner
man, Mr.   F.   I).   Stewart   called the
people   to   order,  and   explained   the
object  of the gathering, stating that
as Rev. Mr. Ross's visit was of  necessity of short duration, it was thought,
that a gathering of this kind would be
lho best menus uf  bringing pastor nud
people togother.    Rev. Mr. Ross, who
was  suffering  from  the offects of an
accident he met  with in Winnipeg the
other day  through  being thrown out
of a carriage, made a splendid address,
thanking his friends for the kind welcome he  had received at their   bands,
and stated that he was pleased to know
that Carman was prospering.  He gave
a graphic account, of his labors among
the people of British Columbia, of the
resources of that country, of   the depression   existing  there    nt   present,
owing  to   the suspension of   mining
operations, and to the great losses the
people   had   sustained   in tbe  Fraser
river valley, owing to the floods tliere
the past spring.    The speaker thought
the people of this part of Manitoba bud
much   reason to   be thankful   for the
blessings of Providence, and  that  we
had but a faint   conception of   what
adversity   was, compared  with   what
the   people of   British   Columbia bud
undergone.      In  conclusion Mr. Ross
stilted   that he did not know whether
or not he would ever havo nn opportunity of meeting his people in Carman
again, to   whom he  was  greatly  attached, but  if  not  he hoped  to meet
them ..gain beyond the great divide.
