Lawson as  a warehouse. Loss, $6,000 on  contents; $3,000 on building. Insurance, $4,000 on stock; $2,000  oh building.;: A cigar stump aid it.  The lawn social given by Mrs.  Poison and the ladies of Enderby,  last Thursday evening, was one  of the most successful events .of  the kind ever held here. ,Sixty-  eight dollars was the amount  raised thereby for the Vernon  hospital..  ,  The pathway along the Salmon  Arm wagon road to Mr.. Gibbs'  home is a vast improvement and  here is the making of the finest  suburb walk in the city. It was  a splendid move, of the city and  is much appreciated by the residents of that locality.  The charge of assault against  D.W.Newberry, laid by Thos.  Brash, was dismissed by Magis-,  trates Barnes and Heggie in the  police-court last Saturday. The  court ordered the road to be  opened, and it will be traveled  until officially closed by the government;  Smith," Davidson & Wright, the  popular wholesale stationers and  paper dealers of Vancouver, have  issued. a.' very. handsome view  book on the Okanagan; It is a  work that should receive������������������wide  circulation.

If  your watch refuses to give satisfaction, or jewelry requires mending, leave it at Mr. Reeves'drug  store where,. on Thursday, Mr.  C. J. Whiten, Vernon's expert  watchmaker will call and collect.  Repair work delivered each week.  Thos. Elliott made his first exhibit of birds at the Calgary, fair  several days ago. He showed two  s. c. brown Leghorn cockerels,  of the Waby pens, and won first  andsecond^prizesr^This^is^not  so bad for Enderby at Calgary.  But at Winnipeg, the Waby birds  were fairly in the top row. Mr.  Waby sent six birds and carried  off one first, one second and three  fourth prizes���������������������������five prizes with  six birds. And it was no scrub  show, either. Judge Butterfield  said it was -the best. showing of  birds ever seen in Winnipeg���������������������������1800  entries!* Hats off to Mr. Waby!  The A. R. Rogers Lumber Co.  will have the last of the season's  drive in the booms at the mill this  week. It amounts to about 12  million feet. The lumber mill  has never run smoother than it  has this season. It has been  short-handed at times, but tthe  daily output has varied but very  little since the start was made on  the season's cut. There have  been no accidents, no stops, and  the stream of lumber from the  yards to the cars has never  ceased. Manager Stevens has  made many changes in the system of handling, and the whole  movement from the log track to  the cars is like a big piece of  mechanism, driven by one shaft.  Postmaster Harvey has some  good newB for Enderby. The  Department at Ottawa has made  Enderby a postal revenue office,  and hereafter all postal packages  subject to import duty addressed  to Enderby or Mara, will be  cleared here instead of being sent  to the Vernon office.    The un  avoidable delay which has been  experienced in "getting postal  packages' through the, Customs  office at Vernon has been a source  of complaint for several years,  and Mr/ Harvey is to be congratulated on securing -this valuable  concession from the Department.  Mr: Harvey has always made it  his business to give good service  in the postoffice, and the patrons  of the office will appreciate the  customs window. [  Something to Be Done.  Unless some- concerted.action  i3 taken Enderby is going to lose  two of her best bandsmen. Mr.  Richardson, who has so faithfully led the band from its infancy, and to whose unselfish  efforts much of the progress of  the band is due, is about to leave  for the coast, and Mr. Griffin,  cornet soloist,- is also going away.  It is up to'the city to make some  move to hold the band together.'  -Theibandboys>_have. affordedvno  end:of pleasure to all,, on the occasion of socials,v concerts, etc.,.  and . deserve more . recognition  than wergive them. ��������������������������� '���������������������������. -       ..

Cordy and Manager E. Samson,' of the Okanagan Fruit Union  Ltd., explain the objects and  purposes of the company. Mr.  Cordy concisely put it. , The organization is incorporated under  the Companies Act, with a capitalization-, of $250,000, divided into 5,000 shares of $50 each. Its  directors are, Messrs. Ricardo,  Kidston, Agur, Carruthers, Shat-  ford, Pooley, McDonald, Palmer,  and Barnet, with E. E. Samson,  for six years manager of the  North Yakima fruit Union. The  company has raised $10,000 to  carry on the first season's business and is prepared to pay cash  for fruit, or handle it on consignment. . Mr. Samson brought  an experienced packer with him,  and it is the object of the Union  to establish ' 'the Okanagan pack"  in the markets of the world. It  is the Union's intention to have  a cooling and packing plant at  every point in the Okanagan, and  also a cold-storage plant at Calgary. It is not the Union's pres:  ent intention, Mr. Samson stated,  to handle produce. Fruit sold on  consignment will be paid for, 50  per cent, on the 15th of the  month following delivery; 25 per  cent. 30 days later and 25 per  cent, in 60 days. Stock in the  company is now for sale:  $10 on  Another Version  Editor The Enderby Press: _  . Dear Sir:���������������������������I see by the last issue of, the Armstrong "Advertiser" that "E. V. C." who occupies a place of honor in the editorial columns, says that my letter , of the- 26th dealing - with  certain letters which appeared ih  the ' "Times'',, is a fabrication and  the^product-of my .own diseased  imagination. Good. : *V-' -���������������������������"'���������������������������'.  I did not say nor infer that religion ' pure and ..simple. .fosters  sensuality, and when he says that  T would force religion to masque  rade.in sensuality's petticoats he  adds indecency and* irreverence  to falsehood. ���������������������������   ' '.  E. V. C. describes himself as  one who while without any claim  to be regarded as, being very  religious, has a very great respect for the real thing. Had  he described himself as a man  who, could lay no claim to be  either truthful or decent he  would have been nearer the  mark.  Ijissure youjtfr. Editor that I  -did~fiot~1abuse~your^columnsby  writing lies. The letters did  appear in the Times. The occasion was this: A religious revival was sweeping all before it in  Wales four or five years ago. It  was a nine days wonder at the  time and attracted widespread  attention. And the question  came up as to-whether any-real  good would result therefrom.  Judging by the letters I should  say that those who took part in  the discussion were intelligent,  decent men, at least they treated  the whole matter in a decent,  reverent and intelligent manner,  as indeed they were bound to do  or they would not have had access to the columns of the Times.  It was during this discussion that  the statistics mentioned by me  were submitted, and as far as I  could see they settled the matter,  at least as far as the discussion  in the Times was concerned.  Doubtless there are many readers of the Times in this province  who recollect the circumstances.  Now in my letter I did hot express any opinion on the point at  issue. L merely submitted certain facts which had come to my  knowledge. The only opinion: I  expressed was that the "Advertiser" and the Rev. Mr. Gifford  were not warranted in dismissing  the proposition or allegation-as  being absurd for the reason that  the majority of those who have  given it intelligent consideration  believe it to b������������������ a fact.  'Now if '  these facts which were submitted"  for consideration by me, are at  variance with the views held by������������������ .  the Advertiser and the Rev. Mr.  Gifford, the quarrel   should .be  with the facts and not with me.  But may I ask what has now .  become of this wonderful religious revival that was, at one time ��������������������������� -  a nine days wonder?. Why is it'  not still sweeping all  before it?  Doubtless the people of Wales";  believed when it started that th'e_ -  day of their spiritual emancipa- ';���������������������������  tion had come., But it all ended ;  in smoke.' And no doubt "the people '\;_  there are just as anxious as ever to be :H\  rid of their sin and misery,   and,live    .  lives made sunny and bright by a con- '"  science void of offense -towards-their.;>I  Creator and; their fellow man.-. .The <_<'<  world is sick and tired of. religious're-  -  vivals, with all their noise and clamour '���������������������������_ .  and the arousing of passions .which' are': v C  aa' far from true religion'as one pole is''Jj  from another.- It seems .to me' there is . >  something wrong/ somewhere.....- The;, *v  clergy should either make good "or they,"'"  should'be less, intolerant towards those J. -  who differ from'theiri.V: -';v '/���������������������������',, < 1 '*,-'���������������������������'.vt.  .������������������That much might .be. done *. to relieve' _'^  men arid woi_eh:of, their, sin"and misery,   '  by- indupirig., them -to lead > healthy,  natural  lives;  lives,' of- constant and.', }���������������������������  cloae intercourseVwith"Mother Nature' ,r  herself; lives wherein by the study and _  contemplation of the phenomena of na-   l;  ture a better knowledge will'be gained  '; '  .of the Divine Being who created it all,_.,Vy  thereby infinitely increasing their men-"/,  tai,  moral  and spiritual growth and" /',  strength, is a fact I firmly believe.  In this direction lies religion pure and    ;  undefiled.   And in this _ direction lie influences and conditions which will make  it just as easy for the most wicked men  and women in the world to render up     -  services of love and obedience to their  .,  Creator as it is for a. child - to render '"'  love and obedience to its" mother as it-  lies happy and contented in her'lap.' -  This is not rant or froth;   but a bald   <* '  statement of my own conviction. I may   %  be wrong, but whether wrong or right.  I do'not feel that_I_am_an outcast..  And, Mr. Editor,  as long as you are   '  trying to induce people to follow a better way of thinking and of living you  can well afford to ignore the foul abuse  of a fatuous scribe like E. V. C.  He thinks the letters never appeared  in the Times. Now, if he will put up  with you $500.00 and disclose his proper "  name, I will put up a like amount (you  have my name) and he or I will take the  money .if I fail or otherwise within six  months to _ produce _the copies _of_ the_l_  Times containing those letters and  prove that what I said is substantially  correct. Redux. '  Enderby, Aug. 2.  [It will take more than rant and ridi-  e to answer this man. Whether we  like his statements or not, he speaks  them honestly and not irreverently, and  he approaches the subject with more  intelligence and decency than those who  have heaped abuse upon him. As all  communications bearing on this controversy are to be refused after August  10th, we have crowded this letter onto  this page, so as to enable anyone wishing to be heard in reply to have the^op-  portunity.

There can be no doubt that  from time to time great injusti _o*htts  been done by the tukiii" of circumstantial evidence, and in the following  article two historic examples are  given. Hither would supply a fit-  tin . theme for the author of "Sherlock Holmes/'  In  France,  in  January,  1539,    one  Martin   Guerre  was   married,   at  the  age  of "eleven,  to  Mademoiselle' Ber-  trande des Riols of Artigues.   A settlement was made for the pair and in  the  ninth  year  of  their .marriage   a  child was born  to ihem.   Shortly afterward   the  newly-made  father    got  into trouble. He took some wheat '-ut  of his father's bins and appropriated  it  to  his  own  use.   Fearing  the  old  man's wrath he ran away.   His wife  thought"that her husband*.would only  remain   separated    long  enough    for  his father's displeasure to soften and  called to her certain incidents known  only to herself anil husband, and it was  stated, in illustration, that Madam  Guerre, having mentioned that she had  preserved certain chests unopened, he  directed her to fetch from one a pair of  white panlaloon-i folded in taffeta. The  garments' were found as he had de-  teribed!  With regard to dissimilarity in height  and  stature,  it was   urged   that  there  was nothing remarkable  in the  boy of  disappearance returning in many years  a stocky man, that the matter of height  was   something  witnesses   might easily  be mistaken  in, and  that of necessity  great  changes  had   taken  place   in  the  appearance  of Guerre  during  his  long  absence.'   Lastly,  the prisoner's  apparently inexhaustible familiarity with fam-  tiniony which might affect the life of a  relative.   The elder sister of Guerre en-  ilv records seemed to show that it was  flecks of blood adhered and .which were  identified as fijom the head of Elezia.  Baxwell was arrested. Thc evidence  against him so.med-. clear, and he was  convicted of the murder of his daughter  and sentenced to death. While being led  to the scaffold ho saw William Katt ia  .he crowd. Declaring his innocence,  B'-.xwell stepped over toward Katt and  said1. "My'friend, in one minute I shall  be in eternity. I wish to die in \. ace  with all men. Give me your hand. I  pardon you freely for the terrible injury  your evidence has done me."  Baxwell said this with some composure, but the effect on Katt was  striking. He became pale as death, and  could not conceal his agitation.  The   merchant   mounted  thc scaffold,  and the last details were attended to by  the executioner.   *-���������������������������-������������������   CONCERNING CIGAR   BANDS.  Public Schools Man Who Can  Tell You How to Measure Them.  eight days were set apart as the -prob- J absurd to claim him to be an imposter  able lime for this. But the eight  days, the weeks and months went by  and it was eight years before tidings  came from  the runaway.  One winter's evening a, man claiming   to   be   Martin   Guerre   presented  himself and told a long story oi penitence.   As to his identity, it was accepted  without  question  by  his  four  sister...  his  uncle and every member  of his wife's family.   And it is not so  much wonder, since the traveller bore  the identical marks of tlie person of  Martin Guerre and moreover was fr._-  iliar with bits of family history such  as  only  the  genuine    Martin    could  have, apparently, known.   At any rate  the  deserted wife  accepted  the  newcomer  with  all fondness and  in the  course  of  three   years   presented   the-  supposed   Martin   Guerre    with    two  children.  As to whether Madame Guerre ever  had suspicions concerning her alleged returned husband can of course  never be known. It would see::i as if  -those almost imperceptible differences  between man and man must have  been observed by her, -but it may be  that the stranger showing her a tenderness  and consideration which her  The.new trial .would' have undoubtedly  resulted in an acquittal had not a remarkable  incident taken place.  The veritable Martin Guerre himself  suddenly came into the court room and  demanded to be heard!  He proceeded to denounce the impostor and gave his history. Then he demanded to be confronted by liim. This  being done, the accused did not appear  to be in the least abashed or frightened,  but begun to arrogantly cross-examine  the  NEWLY" AUELVED CLAIMANT       |  and   put  questions   to  which  the   newcomer   could   not   answer   with   nearly  the readiness of the prisoner, the impostor, if such hc was.   But, examining the"  newcomer, it was   ascertained  that he  bore also all the marks ascribed to the  genuine Martin Guerre.     He was next  questioned   alone   by  the   Judges.    To ;  these, questions he replied v:.th absolute |  accuracy. But the accused being brought  in also answered the same questions as  readily and exactly,  Thu court was cliimfoumW. In despa.r  it was decided that thc omy course was  to bring iu thc relatives of Martin  Guerre,  the four sisters, the  uncle and  real husband had not, she was some .    .    ,.         . .,.,,���������������������������, ,>��������������������������� n-.u. ..mi ipi  what willing to put.up with the new or- ' ,e bl?tlie,'5 01 AV      ,i    -M     w _ the  der  of  things.

Be this a;  Which May Now Have a Far Different  Significance from the Old.  "Speaking of things that have fallen  from their once high estate," said Mr.  Scotfingtou. "you take now, for instance,  cigar bunds. J am a man somewhat advanced in years if not in wisdom, and I  ean remember a time when a band on a  cigar was u sign of quality, when oniv  fine cigars were thus adorned.  "That was in the days bo'fore the war  ���������������������������no. not the revolutionary war, nor the  war of IS.12, nor the Mexican war. but  just the civil war. a matter of something  less than fifty years ago. Jn those days  you could buy a veryfuir sort of Havana  cigar for ti cents and a very good Havana  for 10. aud when among imported cigars  you got up to lo and over you were getting up among the choice smokes.  "I .likewise in those days a standard  price for a domestic cigar was 3 cent.,  as :"> cents is now, and when you rose to  u five-cent cigar���������������������������why, that was then  what a ten-center is now.  "Those were the days when a band on  a cigar meant something, wheu it was  truly i. sign of rank, a decoration of  real significance, a mark of high qualify,  for. in those days band, were placed only  on imported cigars;, and even among  them only on those of specially fine  quality, produced by makers of repute,  perhaps of world wide fume, who, putting their names on those cigars, thus  stood back of them with all their reputation.  "Cigars, those were, of which iheir  makers wore proud���������������������������cigars hat those  able to afford them smoked with pride,  tho aristocrats among cigars, and nobody then questioned their aristocracy.  True, oven in those- days manufacturers  of three-cent cubbajoros might have put  SOME  FACTS  ABOUT  PUPILS WHO DO NOT PASS GRADES.  In  55  American  cities  there nre 1,907,000 school children.  Of these 312,500 didn't pass, either 1907 or 1908, and are taking  their grade over again.  It costs $18,719,000 to keep these repeaters in school.  Can these children who don't pas3 be blamed?  It looks as if the blame rested on the  school systems.  It costs $88,966,717 to run these 55  school  systems.  Yet they spend 15 per cent, of this money tc. do over again work *,  which  they   ought   to   have   done in the first place.  Any business enterprise,  run ort this basis, would be wrong and  a failute.  About the hardest thing lo measure  is the efficiency of tho public schools.  Are our public schools uny good? is  a question that is hard to answer, in  a convincing way. Can ihey be made  any better? is another serious question.  When is a school good? When is  it bad?  Leonard P. Ayres, expert of the Russell Sage foundation, is: at las   find-  J-EONABD- J.. AYERS.  .ag o; ner own counsel, lie this as  it may, it-was not long until rumors  aros-. It was said that the man who  claimed to have returned to his wife,  ������������������������������������������������������ MADAME  GUERRE,  was a fraud.   The excitement finally  became  such  that at  the  instigation  of Pierre Guerre, an uncle of the missing  man,    Madame    Bertrande ' was  forced to have her alleged husband arrested.   The accused made    an    eloquent  defence   and   explai. ed   in    a  minute  and   extended    account    the  causes of his long absence.   Hc claimed  to  have  been  a soldier  in  Spain  until, consumed by the desire to see  his wife and child, he had resolved to  return.      He  also    gave    apparently  overwhelming   evidence,   through   his  accounts  of secret family history,  of  matters   pertaining  to    the    Guerres.  that he was the bonu-fide husband of  Madame   Bertrande.   Mis   replies    to  sharp   questionings   concerning   this  were  ready   and  invariably  accurate.  The wife corroborated '.his' statements,  _but__now _denied_ positively _that   tin;  acciise'd^vSs^iTFr^/iTi-lJTnt.lT^Ori--liiin-  dred  and  fifty  witnesses  weio   summoned and of these, forty swore that  the   prisoner was   beyond  doubt  the  missing Martin Guerre.   On the other  hand, a great body claimed the man  was  no other than Arnaud du    Tilh,  called   "I..insettn,"   whom   they   had  known since a child.   Thc other witnesses, sixty in number, declared the  resemblance between  the two was so  close._that they .could  not render .an  opinion.  The trial resulted, to the general surprise, in a conviction. The man wa..  pronounced to be Arnaud du Tilh and :  sentenced to decapitation. Appoa  the higher court brought un order for  a new trial: it appeared that thirty new  witnef'. had come forth. Of these, ten  declared him to be the true .Martin  Guerre, seven or ei .lit decided in favor  of  consideraicly allowed .freedom from tes-  terod first, paused a moment, as if thun-  I doi _lniek. and then fell weeping upon  ' the breast of the newcomer and acknowledged him *.o be her brother. The other  witnesses, one by one. followed suit.  Finally tne wife came in, nnd the instant  her eyes lighted on Guerre she throw  herself down beside liim. weeping, and  trembling- and begged his compassion  ou her ."Jir the deceit that she had been  led into by artifice. She averred that no  sooner hud she discovered hor error than,  but for. the fear of God's wrath, she  would have concealed her dishonor in tho  grave. In place of this she had determined on revenge, and resolved, through  the courts, to pursue the man who had  dishonored her to his deserved punishment.

He  has studied the schools of 63 American cities, and a report will shortly  be made to educators all over the  country.  One of Ayres' tests is: How strongly do the schools draw the children  and how long do they hold them?  The  average  American  city  carries  all  its  children  to  the south,, grade,  OC1  half of them through the eighth graxiie-,  and one-tenth through the high school.  This means that the average American school is not doing all that it  is assumed to do.  The number of pupils who drop out  before they finish the eighth' grade, is  a. fair test of any school system. But  how high do they go before- they begin to drop out. is another important question. In the southern cities  hi anv colored children drop out in  the fourth grade. In Baltimore.. Camden N.J.. nnd Newark, N.J,,, many  drop out in the fifth grade. The Ohio  cities lost most in the sixth grade-.  .Minneapolis, Boston and Grand.  Rapids keep most oi their pupils-  until they are through with the- seventh grade.       =���������������������������-'  In Quincv and Haverhill, Mass.. the-  ehilclren don't stop until they are- in  the eighth grade.  Another test of school elficiency is:,  "How many children have to>repeat  their  grades?"  In Somerville, Mass.. only G.5 percent, of the children have to _ go  through a _rade more than once; Camden, N.J.."sends 30 per cent, of her  children through her grades twice.  This means that her schools cost hor  SO per cent, 'more than they ought'  to.  Tn the average city only 15 per cent,  of the children are repeaters.  Attendance at school is another test:  There are verv few cities in which as-  manv as three-fourths of the children,  go to.school three-fourths of the time.  ������������������ In fiftv American cities.. Mr. Ayres  savs. it was found that the schools of  35' cities were improving and of lo  cities were going backward.  Manv schools were found that were-  crowded in the low grades and contained few pupils in the upper grades.  In these schools many repeaters were-   ,.  found in    the lower    grades,    which  choked admission to  the s.nool.  Mr. Avres say. it is wrong to blame  school inefficiency to foreigners.

Most  the witnesses agreed in describing Martin .Guerre as taller and darker than  the accused,-slenderer in body and limb,  round-shouldered, witn a high, divided  nose, pendant lower lip and squat nose,  having the trace of an ulcer on the  cheek and a scar on the right eyebrow.  Arnaud, the accused, was short and  stout, having neither humpy shoulders  nor squat nose. But all those marks referred to as belonging to Martin Guerre  wore present on the face of the accused!

It was further sworn to that  Martin Guerre was an export swordsman and wrestler. The prisoner was  neither. About forty persons swore that  the accused actually was Martin Guerre.  Among them were his four sisters, with  the husbands of two of thorn. A great  number .ssertod that Guerre had two  toet.li in the left lower jaw broken, a  (loop patch of extravasatod blood in the  left eye, the nail of the left forefinger  missing, and three warts on the left  hand, one being on the little finger.

Y. Herald.)  From far and near, from the slums  and from Harlem, from thc Bronx and  from Brooklyn, a great throng of men  assemble every morning at one o'clock  at thc Bowery Mission. This is thc famous bread line. Gathered together in  the motley array arc men of many races  and several colors���������������������������veterans and recruits of Xcw York's great army of thc  unemployed, which drills nightly afc thc  Mission. Among the "liners" recently  there was a reporter for the Herald,  dressed to fit the part of half-starved  raw recruit from the west.  Like living exponents of all the sentiments that move the world���������������������������save one,  and the greatest, happiness���������������������������these men j  stand there night after night giving  vent to their feeling's and confiding  in each other. To an outsider these tattered derelicts of the streets display only  one..side of their characters���������������������������the for-  v lorn one. To a fellow "liner" many angles are shown. With pathos i.rcdominat-  O        * - _  ing. discontent, despair, deception and  even humor are curiously blended. Thc  men who "work" both bread lines aud  sometimes complete four and five rounds  in the second are perhaps the most conspicuous, but not the most numerous  to one who mixes in as of their own  kind. Through nothing but laziness these  men use this means to an end that  '���������������������������spells subsistence  without  work.  "REPEATER'S" POOR START.  Next to one of these the reporter first  fell into line. Thc man had only hurriedly fled from some "dive" in China-  'town, where he1 spent his leisure moments���������������������������practically all his time. He explained in his own picturesque vernacular how there was a call for thc  '"'bread liners" in his own particular  habitat at half-past twelve o'clock every morning. He expressed, his regret  that the call had been late''on that particular morning, as a result of which he  was toward the after end of the line.  He embroidered his .pique with all the  trimmings of the profanity of the under-  groove. His one "solace was that three  laps seemed to be within the range of  possibility, while his record of five  rounds in one night looked to bc_ far  out of reach on that occasion considering  his poor stort. -   ' _     , .  Thc man in front was questioned about  jobs. In kind he was the mate of the  Chinatown habitue. Being easily drawn  into conversation, he explained that'  work and existence in New York ' were.  ��������������������������� far from being essentially side partners. He related, as he thought to a  "green one," that if one were familiar  with the ropes one need never worry  about being hungry in Manhattan.  "Kid," he rambled on, "this is thc  softe_; towji there is, and I'm a hey guy  6a thc hobo circuit. Take it from me���������������������������  dig for Manhattan in the winter. If  yo got a nickel in yer pocket just sleep  in anv booze joint along the Bowerv.  HOW"TO GET JOBS. )  In spite of this wizard of the easy  life's" antipathy for work, the testimony of other more willing men was  tliat it was impossible to secure a job  in New York.. At that'time the only possible employment for-these poor, cold,  half clad and quarter fed men was shovelling snow. The "liners" almost to a  " man shied at these positions.  v The rcpoiter at this point, as he had  reached the mission door, dropped out  to look for an imaginary partner fur-  =thcr^down���������������������������thc=lincJ=and���������������������������his=ei'stwhilc.  companions jeered at his foolhardiness in  giving up his place. The next man encountered was a pathetic figure, old and  ragged and deeply in earnest, with a level look from out his steel blue eyes. Hc  was one of those who make thc line  worth while in spite of all the parasites  who "work" the charity.  "Boy," he said, in a shaky voice,  ���������������������������'I've carried thc stick (walked the  .streets) for._two_ months and. can't find  a job. I haven't been in bod for fifteen  nights and only sleep in thc arches of  the bridges and in doorways when there  isn't a cop around to tell me to move  on. I tried to shovel snow for one d������������������y,  but when I finished cold and hungry  and tired they only told mc to come  around next week for my pay and took  my ramc and address. I hadn't thc  strength to work to-day, but I'm goin'  back again to-morrow," and the old  fellow set a square bristled jaw with  a snap that showed u fragment was left  cf a beaten down fighting spirit.  '���������������������������"J'he reporter's next side companion  was munching still when he fell in behind. Ifc was a young fellow wilh an  undershot chin and a droopy mouth. Ho'  was congratulating himself'on his first  position of vantage, which gave him such  ��������������������������� a start in the seco'id division. Jn a  minute he had finished his first instalment of supper, and with great deliberation and curious pomp lit a cigarette.  'Taking it as a whole, there was a likable side to this fellow. He freely gave  the newcomer thc benefit of his long experience to l'_lp him along, and, becoming reminiscent, he told a rather pathetic  tale.  '���������������������������Once.'' he began, "I looked for work  earnestly. I hated to stand here. I walked the streets, but what was the use?  Yer can't get a job here now except  shovellin' snow, and I wouldn't work at  that.";  Again the disguised newspaper man  dropped out and joined the end of the  procession. His neighbor this trip was  a poor soul on the down slide of life who  vindicated the establishment of a bread  line. A question was put to him about  charitable institutions and the free lodging houses in New York. He was conversant with the topic and fluent in his  talk.    His  opinion  ran   something like  tliK: j  "Charities ain't much good, boy. I  was on "Ward's Island ia 'the old men _  homo on. t. They gave us nothing to  cat but slop soup on week davs and bean  soup on Sundays. Well, there was verv'  few beans in the soup.'is all I got to  sav.  XO CHANCE OF WORK.  In conclusion this old veteran���������������������������for he  bore the burden .of years���������������������������said with grave  dignity and a humanitarian spirit, indicative of a willingness to help his fellow:  "Boy. if J wore you I'd get out of this  town. There's no work. I've tried every'  way. And even if you have to sleep oil  the streets keep 'outen the municipal  lodging house. for ���������������������������'hey treat yer li k? a  dog there and \von't let yer out till ten  or -'lcven o'clock in thc moi. in', so yer  can't look for a job."  From the different men conflicting  opinions w-ere gathered. The majority  in this great .wisting snake which nightly seems to wrap itself 3round the vitals  of the city appeared to want to work  and to really be hungry, and' yet not a"  few���������������������������in'"fact, far toosmany���������������������������use it as a  means of easy subsistence. , Their was  one young fellow who spoke seven languages aiid for two months he had  searched for work' in vain. Two side?  were always in evidence to the bread  line.  ���������������������������James Paradise was the next "liner"  interviewed. Hc was'a versatile gentleman, having been a cow puncher on the'  0 C X X ranch in Texas, a performer iii  Young Buffalo Bill's shows, an elevator  boy and a-dishwasher. Yet with this  wealth of experience as a foundation Jim  and his accomplishments could not seem  to fit into the cramped dimensions -of  any job Xew -York had to offer. 'He related in his own way a strange experience in his quest for any sort- of work���������������������������1  a sort of Wild West clipping inoculated  in a Brooklyn vacant lot. -  "The other day 1 was strollin' along  near.the edge'of Brooklyn," he began. "I  sees a loose cow. I says, to a feller chas-  in' her, "Get me a rope and fer a dollar  I'll snare her for you right pert.' He  said he'd givc'up fi'fty cents. So I hurry  up and ropes the Jersey.

As they had come to'this niglitly rendezvous, they left it, some hurrviiig, some  hmping, and some of thc sick one's, staggering.

If the man or woman be  well-known, or if ho or she has disap:  pcared in a way which suggests foul  play or some mysterious romance, the  case obtains publicity, and becomes a  sensation, which lasts a few days and is  then forgotten.  The police know more than the public  about the numbers of people who are  reported missing by their relatives and  friends. And it is no new phase of social life. It is not, an epidemic, due to  any new_orm of hysteria or mental disease, caused by the increasing worries  of the world. For years people have  gone wandering away from their home  circles, and' most of them have never  come back. ; . '   ",     '  -What is the secret of these missing  people? What are the hidden causes  which prompt them to steal away from  all that should iie' dear to them in life,'  from their own little world of .duty-and  pleasure, family and friends?  The answer is not to be found in the"  cynical assumption that most of them  have excellent reasons for disappearing  ���������������������������that they have falsified their books,  and made free use of other - people's  money, or been too familiar with other  people's wives. . ...  The remarkable thing about many " of  these missing men and women is that  they-have been," as, far-" as ' general  knowledge goes, entirely respectable,  that they have not ' been" deeply em-'.  barrassed" financially, and that they  have -been--ieading. quiet, ��������������������������� steady lives.;  outwardly happy, and not .burdened  with more of those cares than most of  us.carry in our-pack.  It is this which makes their cases   so  baffling  arid   mysterious.   -The    public  and the police demand a'motive.. "What"  has he    been' up to?" " they "say/; and  await  squalid  revelations.' ��������������������������� They." ,1 look  for a,clew, and.when-they find "a hat  and- coat by a river-side or on the   sea  beaeli 'the'"clew !seems. clear __ enough,  .though' no body is found."     - .'" j  .  "    The .wife 'is -' examined, and" she, poor  soui;-can only say,' ^'My husband''' had-  nothing, to worry "'him.. He'was'always  good  to  mc  and  devoted-.to  the. children;" or a distracted father, says, "My  daughter was    of the ' happiest'"disposition. I am sure  '���������������������������  "she ' had   "no scrt  love    affairs. ,, Some    terrible    accident  must have happened   to her.'"  But the, truth is that in "many of  these cases of missing people, there is  no motive recognized in the philosophy*  of a policeman. The secret is psychological.       \ -  . . ��������������������������� '������������������������������������������������������  If we do but think a little, we .must  ���������������������������admit that in all our hearlrthere is at  times' a strange resticssnSs, which we  do not understand/and could not explain.

The instinct of escape breaks out sometimes in surprising v/ay.., aud among people most content, as it seemed, with thu huai-druni  routine. J know, for instance, of a domestic servant who had lived in model  respectability for twenty years with an  old maiden'lady. Suddenly this prim  person, who seemed to be the figure of  propriety in cap and apron, rebelled  against ' her narrow life, and escaped  Viith the grocer's young man.  .lost people escape from the narrow  groove in other and less dangerous  way . Many get away from their own  lives by reading about other people's  lives in works of fiction or history.

But there are some people, poets, perhaps, though they have never written  verse, and philosophers, though they  have not read Herbert Spencer, .who.  1-come too introspective by brooding in  the secret chamber of their own heart.  Their family and friends do not know  of their ceaseless" self-coniinunings.  Outwardly thoy live an ordinary life;  inwardly thoy are morbidly excited and  profoundly troubled.

AUGUST 5, 1909  Misunderstanding to the End  TT has been well said that  j- "explanations do not explain." With regard to religious questions this is particularly true. Men can and  do reason sanely one with  the other on all questions but  those affecting religious belief. It has ever been so,  and no doubt will continue  to be. The controversy that  has filled the columns of this  paper for the past month has  accomplished little. It has  now got away from the real  point at issue and is degenerating into a general melange of ridicule and vituperation on long-fought religious differences, the settlement of which, one way or  the other, would mean but  little. The editor will therefore refuse to accept communications from either Bide  after next week. It is not  bur wish to curtail discussion  on any question where there  is a real point of difference,  but when it is simply a matter of definition of words and  construction of sentences, we  can see no good to come out  just spit fire at this editor  last week and didn't give  us a chance, at all, at all,  to dodge the tobacco expectorations. Uh! but Dad  Chambers is a hot one! Hear  him sizzle:  "It is because of the broad  toleration of the people of our  day and generation that gives  to such men as Walker a chance  to thrust their dirty, unclean productions on the public and enable  them to thrive and gain noto-  rietv ''  Oh, Daddy! Daddy! And  then Daddy says some more:  "But what is the use of arguing, if words are twisted out of  their proper meaning and made  to do false duty?"  "In the dictionary before us,  religion is defined as "piety; the  performance of our duties of love  and obedience towards God."  Say, girls; isn't Daddy get  Of eourse, -Daddy Chambers knows, because he has  it, but men who write history are not as passionately  religious as he and they tell us  that "from the earliest times  Christians looked with horror  upon all heresy," and that  the Inquisition was "a tribunal of the church for the discovery, repression, and punishment of heresy, unbelief,  and other offenses against  religion." We look upon the  cruelties of the Inquisition  with horror today, hut then  these cruelties were justified  by the religious people.  When the great man John  Calvin, whom the Christian  world has ever honored for  his profound intellect and religious fervor, banished his  former friend Castellio, and  ting wise! And then he says sent Servetus to the stake,  some more:  "To return to Walker again:  The nailing of Christ to the Cross;  the days of the Inquisition, etc.,  was not due to religion, but rather the lack of religion!"  We wonder if Daddy  Chambers has not forgotten  his Sunday School lesson.  The Good Book tells us that  "when the chief priests saw  Jesus they cried out 'crucify  him, crucify him." And  when Jesus was released unto them they crucified Him.  Those high priests were re  of it.   Contributors will gov- ligious-as religious as they  ern themselves accordingly, knew how to be ih their day  and age.   In crucifying the  Stepping Backward  A PETITION from Mr. F.  ^a. V.   Moffet and others,  asking the city to construct  a wagon road to give access  to  their   property   in   the  Lawes addition was turned  down by the.City Council at  the last meeting.    However  wise this action may be in  view of the  city's present  financial condition, it seems  to be a step backward in the  line of progress.    There is  not the least  doubt in the  minds of the men who know  the value of hill property for  residential purposes that the  Lawes-Barnes additions embrace the most valuable land  for. home-makers  that the  city or the Valley can boast  of, and if it were opened by  a road, it would quickly be  ^settled^upon^and^developedr  In view of this acknowledged  fact, it does seem that some  arrangement could be made  with the owners  of  these  tracts whereby such a road  could be built by  the city  and the properties made accessible. " Otherwise    they  will have to remain in the  condition of wild lands for  years to come, and yet be included in the city limits, and  subject to city taxation.    It  is not strange that men accustomed   to seeing opportunities taken advantage of  should pass such remarks as  this: "Enderby is beautiful;  it has magnificent possibilities; the only trouble is, she  is asleep."  This was said by  a Vernon  real   estate man  on a visit to   Enderby this  week.     And  he  meant it  kindly, too.  Man of Sorrow, they believed  they were doing their duty to  God, and when it was all  over they went to church  and said their prayers. Looking at it from this distance  we can see their cruelty, but  they did not  see it  then.  because they refused to ac  cept his doctrine of election,  he no doubt, believed he was  doing a very necessary and  pious act. His religious passion ran away with him. So  it has been with the persecutors of all ages, Daddy  Chambers to the contrary,  notwithstanding.  Dad Chambers means well  enough, and we like him, but  when he lets his religion  make the wheels go round so  fast we feel like asking him  to soak his head. At all  events, he  should cool off.

Goods  Examination Papers  Some surprise was felt by the  parents of Enderby when it was  known that out of 13 pupils taking the entrance examinations  only three passed. But this percentage is not much below that  of some of the other towns. In  Armstrong 18 tried and six passed; in Kelowna 30 tried and one  passed; Vernon 26 tried and 15  passed.  The fault is not entirely on the  part of the pupils, according to a  letter from Mr. E. Wilson, principal of the Armstrong .High  School.-' He says: "The fB. C.  course of study is the best in Canada, but the' examiner is destroying its usefulness and discouraging both pupils and teachers. We  may sum up these .faults as follows: The examiner seems to  wish to show his - knowledge  rather than to discover the knowledge of the pupil. The papers  are set to guide the teachers as  well as to test the pupls, which  is unfair. If the department  wishes to guide the teachers let it  spend a little money, and ,do it in  the proper way by Model Schools  and other training methods/ The  papers are very, often modeled  from the university "specialist  papers, thus requiring the special  and particular knowledge of experience and genius, which is  impossible to. the average pupil  below twenty. The preliminary  arithmetic paper, of this year is  an example of this as well as  other faults. Nearly all the  questions required special knowledge and. ability; -four had unusual catches which caused confusion; two were faulty in statement, so without meaning to the  ordinary pupil; the time was also too short by at least one hour.  The department these last two  years has thrown the arithmetic  of two years into one which is a  blunder. . If the standard is to be  kept-up. two years must be taken  for the work. ��������������������������� "  "The. literature was a huge  blunder, showing extreme carelessness in some person. Three  of the questions were outside of  the course^ and most of thekoth_rs  required memory work alone. .

BATTLE  WITH   WILD  SWAN. _  Great  Fowl. Struck Ship's  Cabin  and  Gave Two Sailors Hard Fight.  While coming up the bay to Baltimore Friday night the steamer Avalon  ran into a flock of wild swans off Thomas Point and a swan was captured by  the lookout, \V. T. Whitcly, who was on  tho forward deck, after a thrilling experience. -  The steamer, was running at a lively  clip when Whitcly heard a fluttering  and a few minutes later saw a flock of  swans directly in front of the boat. They  circled around a few times, then lit in  the water on the port side. Hc notified  First Officer Corkan. who turned on  tho searchlight. That seemed to frighten them and they all arose from the  water. There appeared to be about 100,  and all flew over thc pilothouse, except  one which struck the port side of the  steamer with a crash. A passenger in  stateroom 45, whicli was damaged,  thought there had l������������������een a collision, and  got out of bed.  "When I saw the swan strike the  boat I rushed up to it. expecting to pick  it up with ease," said WThitely, speaking of his experience. " To my surprise  the thing turned on me and gave me  ^_even_"ibr6\vs"witlrtts^wings=which"inear^  ly knocked me clown. Then I grabbed at  it again, only to be pecked with its big  bill, making my hands bleed.  "At first I did not know what kind  of bird it was, but I was determined  to capture it. The wings beat me back,  but I kept up the battle until Mr. Cork-  ran arrived and we tied the bird. Even  after pinioning its wings it was hard  to hold it, as its strength was great.  We finally got a piece of rope and tied  the legs together. Later a coop was  made and wc placed 1hc bird in it."  Shorly after the steamer docked at  Light street the swan was sent to the  office of Assistant General Manager A.  . I. Seth. of the company. The office  force was attracted by the big bird, and  when it was measured it was found to  be 89 inches from tip to tip of its wings  and it stood 55 inches high. Mr. Seth  presented the bird to the zoo at Druid  Hill Park.���������������������������From thc Baltimore Sun.   ___������������������_-������������������������������������������������������.

A new movement which aims at    tho  establishment of a Methodist brotherhood throughout the British Empire  was launched here on Saturday by Sir  Hubert Perks, Bart., M. P., contractor,  civil engineer and financier, the founder of thc Methodist Twentieth Century Million Guineas Fund" and of thc  great palatial central home for Methodism on the site of the Westminster  Aquarium, and the chief promoter of  thc latest scheme for the construction  of the Georgian Bay Canal.  The versatility of Sir Robert's mind  is shown by his capacity to carry  through successfully a Brazil or Argentine railway or harbor scheme and  a    great   religious   movement      which  - made a million golden guineas to fairly jump from the pockets of the people  ' into the coffers of Methodism.  Sir Robert's latest scheme was explained with great completeness at a  gathering of Methodist ministers and  laymen which met him by invitation  at a luncheon at the Windsor Hotel on  Saturday.  Sir Robert, who was supported at  the principal table by tlie Rev. Dr.  Young, Rev. Principal Shaw, Rev. Mr.  Timberlake, president of thc Methodist Conference. Rev. J. Richardson,  Mr. J. II. Goodwin,-Mi. J. W. Knox  and Mr. A. 0. Darweu, unfolded his  , scheme in an able speech. In its more  ideal aspect it is a co-operative movement making for international peace  and industrial concord, the .promotion  of temperance, the protection of women  and th*1 hum_ner treatment of native  races in the wild portions of tho world,  but on its more immediately practical  side it has for its purpose an - immigration project which would form a most  important auxiliary to the existing  agencies that have been established  by the Canadian Government .in the  Mother Country! On.thi3 side of the  Atlantic it means the receiving in a  healthful and brotherly spirit of emigrants of the Methodist faith from  Great Britain, helping them to secure  positions and to establish a congenial  home life. On the other side it means  the encouragement of emigrants of a  desirable character, persons of good  reputation, whose .' antecedents would'  bo vouched for and who would be  physically and mentally* fit for Canadian life. Tlie scheme was received  with obvious favor by the speakers  who followed. Sir Robert, and was endorsed by the audience on a " show of  hands.  ELASTICITY OF METHODISM. > .  In explaining  his scheme  Sir Robert  observed it had been his good fortune in  ��������������������������� the past few days to address audiences  of ra,diverse character. A few days ago  - he"had to speak to a company of politicians, concerned in.a great industrial enterprise which must in a very practical  way affect the fortunes of the Dominion  iu years to come, and on the previous1,  day he was-asked to, speak at Toronto,  ou a subject which was a somewhat perplexing one to explain to a Canadian  audience���������������������������thc relation of Liberalism in  England to the colonies and more particularly to the Dominion. At both these  gatherings he" felt he must tread very  warily and be on his best behavior, but  upon the present occasion, speaking to a  company  of  Methodist   preachers    and  .laymen on  a subject that  appealed to  ' Methodists he felt more  at home, and  could discuss it with greater freedom.  It might be asked, said Sir' Robert,  what business the Methodist Church had  to concern itself with political and industrial  problems,  but lie  would  reply  =that=it--had=been^.theJ-glory_o__the_Metho-^  dist Church far and near, at hon^e and  beyond the seas, since the days of Wes-  . ley to our own time, that it wps marked by a glorious irregularity and marvellous elacticity. Wesley himself, in  addition to establishing dispensaries, had  set up an industrial establishment, the  profits of which were partly shared by  the employees.  "Tho time has now come," added Sir  Robert, "when the Methodists throughout the world should utilize their boud  of conncctional unity���������������������������that mysterious  fraternity of spirit whicli binds us like  some powerful religious freemasonry for  advancing thc interests of Methodist  people throughout, the world."  The Methodist Church, he went on to  say, stood second numerically to the  Church of England, the mother church,  yet it had no endowments or social advantages���������������������������no adventatious aids of any  kind, in proof of which hc mentioned  they had but one peer in thc House of  Lords. A great brotherhood of Methodists would, Sir Robert said, be able  to bring a powerful influence to bear  on statesmen > _ dealing with some of  thc humanitar.an aud national questions that confronted us. It would be a  great factor in making for international  peace and concord in the relations between employers and employed.  Sir Robert dwelt ,at great length on  thc immigration aspect of his scheme.  Last year twelve thousand Methodists  left England for Canada, and of that  number he felt sure that eight thousand  had no definite or certain idea of what  they were going to do when thoy came  liere. What he proposed in this direction  was to organize immigration so that it  ���������������������������would be comparatively easy for their  own people to get employment when  Ihey came here. This they would do by  the establishment of register of Methodists who emigrated, By this means  thoy would be brought in contact with  employers who were iu need of workmen. He hoped those present would form  themselves into a committee that would  establish in- Montreal one of the opeu-  ���������������������������ino- centres of the brotherhood.     Given  the initial start, and the hand of good  fellowship and welcome among their own  people, Methodists would 'be sure to succeed when they came to Canada, they  did not drink, at all events to excess,  and did not as a rule smoke or put their  money on races. The Methodist organization might be relied upon not to send  to Canada persons who were undesirables.  The scheme received cordial endorsement from the Rev. Dr. Young, Aid.  Carter, Mr. J. W. Knox, Rev. W. A.  Radlcy, Mr. A. 0. Dawson and Rev. Dr.  Shaw, who all offered practical suggestions as to how thc sorting process  might be, carried out and the necessity  for co-operation' between the clergy and  laity in the matter.  After a show of hands had been taken in favor of thc scheme, Sir Robert  said that in July next he would let the  Methodist Conference iu London know  how heartily the brotherhood scheme  has been supported in Montreal. It  would take some time to get the details  iu shape, but he hoped the organization  would be iu full operation when the Central Methodist premises at Westminster  were completed in 1911. Speaking of the  signs of unity throughout the church he  'intimated that probably tlie next aecu-  meuical  Methodist conference would be  held in Toronto.  ��������������������������� *������������������ . _   Be   Not   Discouraged.  Many Christians are depressed aud  disquieted because they are not, as  they fear, growing in grace. The following .considerations should give them  comfort:  To see and lament our decrease in  grace indicates not only the life of  grace, but its growth. As it is a sign  a man is recovering . and getting  strength when he feels his weakness, so  it is a step forward in grace to see our  imperfections. The more the Spirit  shines in the heart, the more evil it discovers. A Christian thinks it worse with  him than it was; ������������������wiiereas, his grace  may not have declined, but only his.  light  have  become  greater.  If a Christian does not increase in one  grace, he may in another; if not  in knowledge, he may in humility. If a  tree does not grow' so much in the  branches it may in the root; and to  grow downwards in the root is a good  growth.  A Christian may grow-less in affection  when he grows more in judgment. As.  the musician, when he is old, though  his fingers "are stiff, .plays on the instrument with more art and judgment  than in his, youth, so a Christian ..may  not have, so much affection in duty as  at the ti������������������_ of his conversion; but he is  more solid iu religion, and more settled  in his judgment than he was before.  A ��������������������������� .ristian may think he does not increase-in-gifts; whereas, there may be  a decay of natural powers, tlie memory  and other faculties, when there' is not a  decayj.of grace.. -Powers may be impaired when grace is improved.  A Christian may increase in grace,  yet not be - "sensible.' of it., The seed  may. grow in the earth when we. do not  perceive it to spring upj and grace may  grow, during our spiritual gloom, and  not be perceived.  Christians, therefore., should not yield  to  despondency "because they  are    not  conscious of making   advance in       the  divine life.     Hie    sun is reaching   his  meridian,    even  wheu  clouds, intercept  his beams,,and it is the assurance of a  faithful God, that the, path of the just  is as the shining light, that     shineth  more and more unto the perfect day.

A number of Canadian Zionists residing in Winnipeg, Manitoba, acting  in conjunction with Mr. Clarence I.  de Sola, of Montreal, president of the  Canadian Zionist Federation, have  decided on embarking upon an enterprise which will assist the realization  of the Zionist programme in a practical and material form. They have  pledeed themselves to contribute, individually, a fixed sum every month,  and in this way to make up a fund  for buying land in Palestine on which  to settle colonists. Already this little  association of earnest workers has  raised sufficient money to be able to  buv about one thousand dunam of  land, and they are now negotiating  for its purchase. Mr, de Sola is consulting Palestinian authorities as to  the best place in which to make the  purchase. He is furthermore issuing  an appeal to all Canadian Zionists,  asking them to follow the example  of the Winnipeg association, and lie  is elaborating a plan by which he  hopes to get all Canadian Zionists to  join in an entcrpripo for purchasing  land for Jewish settlers iu Palestine.  ���������������������������" Mrs. Sofia Loebinger ha3., been  chosen president- of the buffragette.  organization formed by wage earning  women in New- York.  - The Russianv emigration movement  to Palestine shows no signs of abatements.

It is the duty of every player to keep  the score for both sides, and to keep it  correctly. If he knows that his opponents have three aces in a "no trump"  game, hc is bound to score them thirty  points above lhe line, whether they  claim it or not, or whether they score  it or not. At the end of the rubber'thc  scores arc added up, and the winners  generally announce how much they make  it. If one of the opponents makes it  more or less, he should say at once. "1 '  do not agree," and the scores-will thcu  be compared and put right. For a player to accept his opponents' score without saying, anything, when he himself  makes it more, is perilously ��������������������������� akin to  cheating.  The question has once more arisen as -  lo whether a player at bridge is bound  to correct his opponents' score, if they  do not claim as much as they are en-"  titled to, either for honors or for tricks. ,  It is generally in the "no trump" game  that the point occurs. Perhaps, thc dealer and his partner have three aces between them, but they do not olaim anything for honors, o.1 the dealer wins four  by cards but only claims three: are hi*  opponents bound to put him right?  There can be only ono answer to this  question. Certainly they aro bound to  do so���������������������������iu ordinary fairness, if not according to the strict letter of the law.

Mr. Campbell's  Version  Editor The Enderby Press:  Dear Sir:���������������������������As the discussion in  your columns has become one of  things in general allow me a little comment. I shall not discuss  your original article further than  to give my own humble opinion  of i fc. Evidently what you meant  to say, and what you did say are  two different things. By reading  between the<lines one may guess  that what you meant to say was  right and wise. But if language  is to be taken in any ordinary  sense, what you did say was untrue alike to fact and philosophy  and in its form of expression,  vulgar, and pitted to do injury to  the mutual confidence of people  in one another.  Some of your correspondents  were evidently missed, when the  government was deporting undesirable immigrants. To call up  some unknown correspondent in  the musty files of the London  'Times', to ask us to believe that  the work of D. L. Moody, Henry  Drummond and General Booth  has its fruit in an increase of  vice is to take the people of Enderby to be idiots. He may settle his argument with the tens of  thousands who have by the same  work been lifted out of perdition  to manhood and womanhood. I  differ from the editor as to what  constitutes "candid, open discussion."  I am surprised also to find ' 'the man  who won't stop his paper" yoking up  with this kind of rubbish. And yet it  is the divisions and faults of the church  which make young people skeptics! If  he were consistent he would do all he  can to help the bar-room, just for the  sake of "tolerance" and "the true  Christian spirit," "If thine enemy hunger feed him." . He does not like the  drink business and refuses to buy, another does not like objectionable literature  and he refuses to buy. The one is as  intolerant as the" other only more consistent.  One's hope rises when he sees this  correspondent sweeping away theories,  dogmas, creeds and church faults, but  alas for human 'weakness. The iconoclast becomes an idolater,, the prophet  of the practical becomes a mere  theoriser, the destroyer of creeds and  dogmas, the setter forth of other creed  and dogma. Listen! "The Divine is in  every man notwithstanding the assertions" of man-made creeds and dogmas to  the contrary." It is thc T within thfy  man which,' when listened to, lifted up*  and looked up to, and trusted and obeyed will bring all men to the Father  principle of truth." What is expected  of us is just to be real.'' All this, whatever it may mean, to take the place of  the formulas gleaned by the faith and  experience and toil of ages. Truly he  who does not reverence the past is not  fit for the kingdom of God, nor for the  kingdoms of this world. "The divine is  in every man" notwithstanding Jesu3  looking-some_men_.boldly_._in _th_g_face  and saying "Ye are of your father ihe  devil.''    ' 'The Divine is in every man,''  but the man does not know it, and the  Divinity is too  impotent to get out, He  must be'educed',   "drawn out."  Poor  Divinity!   Jesus taught that the worst  man might receive the  Divine Spirit  and be led  by Him into all  truth and  perfection of 'life and service.   Mow we  just look to the capital T and be a real,  self-made man.   Wonderfully profound!  To come to books, sermons, etc.   The  aged ' principal  under whom I had the  privilege to study urged   as his  part-  I ing    advice     to    students     entering  the ministry,   "Gentleman,   tie   yourselves to your study table."    He knew  what we have all learned since, the distractions in a minister's life to lead him  to abandon  student habit3.   He knew  that  almost   all   men   who fail in the  ministry fail  for want of attention  to  books and   sermons.   The    burden  of  almost every minister's life in the west  is that he cannot get the time he needs  for books and sermons.   Also it is false  to make books and   action antagonistic.  Almost every great movement has its  origin   with  books and men  of books.  Moses was a man of action but learned  in all' the learning of his day.    St. Paul  was the  best scholar of his day  and  carried his  books and  "especially the  parchments,"   like   a   poor  Methodist  preacher.   To  the student research of  Luke we owe two of the most-important  books   of   the   New   Testament.   The  Apostles refused to do practical charity  in order  to   "give  themselves to   the  ministry of the Word."   The reformers  were men  of books to  a man.   And  there is hardly a statesman worthy the  name who is not also a man of books.  Those that think that men of books are  not students  of  men and  things  and  practice have still something to learn.  Practice without theory is madness. ���������������������������  I need not try to defend the church  and missionaries; I owe too much to-the  church and the pulpit to speak disparagingly of them. I should imagine that  every one of Anglo-Saxon blood might  be the same. The church and her missionaries alone care whether the gospel  is'given to the world or not. It is easy  to-talk about Christ and the Christ spirit. But for the church and her missionaries we should know nothing of  them. I expect cur race might still be  worshipping under the oaks. And you.  and "the manwho .ron'tstophis paper"  would not be honored with martyr stake  and fagots, you would just be smoking  on the altar of sacrifice beneath the ancient oaks.
