When in Enderby at the trial  last week, Mr. C. J.

The method of, psychology  is ultimately introspective, but it is intro-  -spection-carefully^pursued^andcorreeted-Dy  the standard of the scientific average.  In writing along psychological lines in  this department, it has been our aim, before stating a proposition, to go to the root  of it and then work to the surface. In  doing so we have frequently spent hours in  research and study to catch a thought by the  tail and lay it bare before you, only to see  it damned, kicked and flouted in as many  minutes by the superficial reader, who is  not prepared to follow a thought to its lair.  We never doubt the sincerity of the superficial reasoner, but we question his policy.  If all thought were made to conform to his  limited scope of vision and study, how pitiably short of the Divine life would soon become; how ensmalled man would be! But  let us thank God for the men and women  in all communities who recognize Truth in  any garb, and are big enough to look  an idea in the face without having an attack of the blind staggers.  In writing on the Sigel murder case two  weeks ago we made Borne psychological deductions which were taken in a superficial  sense by some, and the real thought back  of andv underlying the article was completely lost. Three good Methodists even  went so far as to take it as a personal in-  sult and came in and exercised their privilege of stopping their paper. One of them  has even gone farther than this and has, in  addition to stopping his paper, written a  communication condemning the editor in  the strongest terms, evidently with a view  of inducing others to stop their paper. The.  communication-referred to will be found in  another, column.;', ' " ��������������������������� ���������������������������';"*'.' ��������������������������� ������������������������������������������������������'"���������������������������"���������������������������".; -.��������������������������� ���������������������������?;.!..:; -'  The writer of this communication .shows  a more acute "moral sense" than hie does  good "horse sense,"for he has deliberately  picked up "a further insult" which was  never intended in any way possible to apply  to him or others.like him. We had no idea  this correspondent was .having a "brain  storm" until his spasm came to us oh paper. We hope our readers will, re-read the  editorial that has caused this reverend gentleman such a fit of indignation. Read in  the light in which it was written, it contains the essence of what this correspondent  froths at the mouth about, ���������������������������evils which he  himself admits in almost every detail.  -The-editor-is=not-inanerimmunerimpious  or implacable; nor is he infallible. He can,  and no doubt does, do- wrong. But the  case at point he is prepared to submit  without argument. When the article  superficially condemned is answered from  the psychological plane on which it was  written, with local pique, silly pride and  unreasonable religious reference left out;  he will be heard. But what can be said to  a man who meanly picks up a two-line  reference to the Dake-Belmont affair, and  endeavors to use it to cast reflection upon  the sincerity and honesty of purpose of the  editor? The only "brain-storm" Enderby  knows anything about of late is the one  that swept the young men mentioned off  their feet. If anybody knows of another  "brain storm" brewing, he should inform  the police before it breaks.

T .c lowest known valuation set an act-  a... wages at 75 cents a day, or in mod-  . ra money about $1,800 a year. Shakespeare's emoluments as an actor before  __$. are .ot likely to have fallen below  .-J.W) in our money;   while the remun  eration due to performances at court or  iu noblemen's houses, if the accounts, of  '150-1- be accepted as the basis of reckoning, added some $000.  Actresses did not appear until about  Ki(i2, female parts being previously taken by boys. Amongst the very earliest  were Mi.tress Xcll Gwyn, of.the King's  playhouse, and _\listress Knip. Both  from having been "orange girls," earning  a precarious existence about the theatre,-were raised,to the affluence of $5  a performance���������������������������about $20 in present  value.  15y the time we reach David Garrid.  the emoluments received by the successful actor had steadily increased.  Curricle himself could command $250 a  week before he went into manageemnt,  besides a benefit which would bring in  virtually all ihat the house was worth  ���������������������������from $2,000 to_ $.'3,500 for the night.  Aitcr he went into management his  earnings were enormous, and he died  leaving, at a low computation, over  $500,000.  Miss  Farren's ��������������������������� engagement  cost    the  management at the height of her career  $250 a week, whicli was what Mrs. Sid-  dons also consented to receive from Covent  Garden  Theatre  at one period  of  her fame.   But this was far below what  she could and did demand elsewhere and  in the Provinces; and in her biography  wc read that on tour $150 nightly was  the sum cheerfully  paid for  the  great  actress' services.   It must be remembered that the value of money in the days  of   tho   three   players   just  mentioned  was double what it is at present, that  is, $250 then corresponded to $500 now.  Great  as   the   sum   then   seemed,   it  soon became common. $250 a night being paid to Kcan, Mac-ready, and even  Fechter;  but it  is. of course, dwarfed  into   insignificance   by  the  emoluments  received  from  thc American  public  by  such artistes as Bernhardt. Coquelin and  Irving.    Bernhardt was   paid   $1,000  a  night, which seems to have struck the  Parisians dumb with astonishment.    It  is difficult to apportion Sir Henry Irv-  ing's receipts apart from Miss Terry's.  But  they  undoubtedly  were  valued us  as $000 a night ou tour.  jewellery their taste runs rather toward  the gaudy and ornate; rings with large  diamonds and rubies, emeralds aud sap-  hires; earrings of weight and value but  little   artistic   beauty;   little   caps   for  the   head,   thickly   covered   with   gems.  Their native dresses too arc  frequently  stiff with embroidery of precious stones.  Cigarette cases    and  holders,      jewel  boxes, sweet boxes, hand glasses, brushes and  combs,   all  iu  massive  gold  or  silver, roughly finished and poorly chased, but set with stones of great beauty  and  value,'" are  also  deemed  necessary.  I     The 1110..    serious action of the civil  list, is, however, seen in the injury that  it has caused not only to private individuals but to the country.  Fifteen years  ago men were sent around Turkey in order to hunt  up desirable plots of land  and to find excuses for causing them to  be forfeited  by lhe law of thc country  and then taken  possession of on behalf  of the Sultan.  The British' Embassy,    and   probably  every other embassy, has had during the  last twenty years many- cases   before it  of  claims   that  have   been   made  upon  thc property in thc country    belonging  to     British   subjects.     Diplomatic    influence   after   considerable   trouble   usually sufficed  to defend  the possession  of these lands, but the v .-ctdied Turkish  subject who  could  bring      110 such influence to bear had to succumb. On the  part of the civil list it was a game    of  might is right, and it was because the  country generally was dissatisfied with  the attempts that were made upon private property that the civil list became  distinctly unpopular.   . ������������������ ������������������   THE  ADVANCE  OF  YEARS,  Which   Happily  People   Fall  to  Realize, Says Mr. Flickerton.  ���������������������������"Isn't it curious,'' said "Mr. l.ickerion.

J.ut one of lhe house of Grant, riding  home in thc dusk and hilarious from  too much of the white, hot moonshine  from Moccasin Bend, yelled defiance as  he passed the cabin home of thc Lathams, and reeled in his saddle when the  revenging bullet came.

They had the choice  nook of the cafe. Shielded by the  big palms they could, see, but yet  not be seen.  Jn thc same moment tliat she gazed  thc man became aware of what he  held in his hand. It was a fountain  pen. seemingly tho symbol of his  work, for he was just one of the vast  army of the business world's everyday bookkeepers. He had taken it  out to writ, the order for their little  supper. Almost angrily he jammed  it back into his pocket and then his  mind returned to the theatre and to  thc play that they had, just seen together, and to the hero therein, and  the beauty romance nnd splendor of  it all, and that was thc cause of his  present mood. She had like it so  much, grown almost over-enthusiastic,  hc thought. It would give her false  ideas of what to expect. That was it!  Sho would expect the romance of the  play to bo her own romance. That  was   impossible.  Carried away by the irritation of  1 _is mind, hc noticed thc tab that was  still lying on the table, held it carelessly for a moment, .then instinctively reached i'or his fountain pen. Back  at business college they had awarded  him several prizes for penmanship,  and hc could write if hc couldn't talk.  And thi? was the evening during  which he had decided to ask her the  big   question  that was  troubling  the  very soul of mm!  Tlie fountain pen was now moving  hesitatingly across the blank paper,  ultimately framing beautiful doves  and birds and drawing lines possessing true curves. Then the hand began to move faster and faster. He  looked up for an instant and she was  silently watching hini. But lids hand  never wavered. Two, three or four  years ago, was it, since he had last  done this. It mattered not. It  seemed but as yesterday. And then  it was all done, all except that central vacant space, mere was a place  there to write something.  "Joy or sorrow J am by thy side."  hc remembered the words distinctly  from thc play.. They had made a  great impression upon him and hc  wrote them .without a falter.  Tho slip was torn hastily from the  others, slipped gently across to her,  and then hc was writing again, faster, more enthusiastically, more beautifully than ever. The passion of his  entire   being  was   behind   it  all.  "It is never cold beneath thy  smile." He had remembered that  also, and hc made it 'his own mes-  srige and it reached her the same as  tho first, but hc dared not look up  to see what effect it was having.  For the third time he was filling  ... piece of paper with thc objects of  Iiis imagination, inspired with the  substance oi all his dreams. This  was to be tho last, he decided, and  the words were to be his truly own.  The soft, cadent. ravishing music of  the orchestra nerved him i_i.  "I love you," he wrote, forgetting  that the words were noo new, but indeed more ancient than all of the  others.  The pen dropped to the table, and  with both arms outstretched lie lifted the diminutive piece of paper towards her. Her two hands met both  of his for she knew instinctively what  it all meant, and she was kindly  above  all  other  traits.,  "Same hero, George," sha assured  him, very bluntly but none the less  tenderly  and earnestly.  He suddenly wondered how he  could ever have doubted her in the  least.   ���������������������������������������������*-.

Conditions which usually exist around  .city homos are not very favorable for  either a flower or vegetable ganhm, or  even for "a lawn.

Tho more  loam us.d. thc better immediate results.  Grass and many of the shallow rooted  plants will grow well in soil that is  Inrgely clay if they have a chance to  get a good start in thc loam.  To enrich the mixture of loam and  clay, some fertilizer should hc added.  .Many kinds can be used. One of the  most practical is .bone meal, five to  ten pounds'a square rod. Jn using this,  mix if with soil, two parts of soil to  one of bone. meal, and let sUnd for  two or three days, then spread over the  ground. Wood ashes, guano and sheep  manure arc all good fertilizers for the  lawn.  If the ground is naturally wet and a  ���������������������������i 1.11c sour, an application of air-slaked  "in:_ i? pood to spread on at the rate of  fortv or fifty pounds a square rod". This  should be done a few days before the  ground is to be planted. In the planting  of trees and shrubs on newly made  ground it i.s best to dig much larger  holes than are necessary for the spread  of the roots, and u������������������i only black soil  around thc roots. This gives tho. plants  a chance to get a good start in the best  soil.   ������������������-���������������������������-.   Over Alps  in  Balloon.

JULY 2?, 1909  .HELD FOR TRIAL  The preliminary hearing of J.  A. Dake on the charge of arson,  cr.iTie up Friday evening before  Magistrate Rosoman.   Provincial  Constable Gardom conducted the  prosecution; Attorney Rogers of  Vernon, appeared for the accused.  W. PI. Hutchison was the first  witness called.    Ee was first on  the scene of the fire on the morning of July 2nd,  when Lake's  jewelry store, in one of the frame  buildings owned  by Geo. Bell,  was completely destroyed.   The  fire was  on the  inside  of the  building,  and   had great headway.    He  saw   it  through  the  rear- windows.    It was about the  centre of the back partition.   At  that time there was no fire on the  outside of the building, and the  back door was closed.  Frank V. Moffet was next  called. He made the first connection, and had a stream of  water on the fire soon after the  first alarm. He tried the front  door and found it locked. - Either  smoke or window blinds prevented him locating the fire  through the front windows. He  went around to the east side and  endeavored to get a stream onto  the fire'through a side window  that was boarded up. The fire  was burning fiercely in the back  room, and was just beginning to  dart through the boards near the  rear end.  Harold Taylor, engineer at the  sawmill, operating the electric  light plant, testified that it was  1:55 a. m. when he gave the first  whistle alarm. The last alarm  was given 15 minutes later.'  Frank Belmont was next called,  lie was employed by the accused  as traveling salesman. Had made  four or five trips since taking up  the work six months ago.   As  early as April -he learned that the  accused was in financial difficulty.  "We tried to devise some scheme  to raise enough money to meet  bills and carry on business.   We  Jiit-upoiut3ie-sch-me_j_Lins.un_g_  the building.    It was planned to  cover the goods with more insurance than their value justified.  We planned to carry the insurance about a month,  or longer if  possible, and then set the building  afire and get the insurance. With  the insurance-money, v/eplanned  the stock and carrv on  month.    The fire was to   be set  with an alarm clock.    This was  thought of about a month before  that because we could both be  away at the time and -.prove an  alibi.' One of the features of the  clock was to so manipulate it that  it would -take 18 hours for the  hour hand to.makeohe revolution  of the dial.   I- do not know how  it was done.     Another  feature  was an emery wheel attached to  the alarm wind. Another feature  was a bent striker, and the alarm  bell unscrewed,  but left on the  clock.     This   machine was   not  quite complete when   I went to  Shuswap.    It had been experimented on by Dake and myself,  after I came home from  I .ere-  meos.   I went to Shuswap to get  money to tide us over until we  could get the insurance money.  I had a successful trip.   Brought  back $137 altogether.    Got back  Tuesday, June 29th. Tuesday v/e  experimented with the clock, and  talked the insurance scheme. We  came to the ��������������������������� conclusion that we  would pack up the stuff en Wed-  pro-  neaday night.     On Tuesday we  sprinkled some benzine around  and either on that day or the day  after, Dake bought a supply of  benzine and floor oil.     A lot of  excelsior was taken in on Wednesday night from a barrel back  of  Hutchison's  old shop.   The  excelsior was left in the back of  the shop until  late Wednesday  night,   then distributed.     Dake  and I did this together.    Billy  Holtby and Dick Best came to  the store while we were doing  this.   The store was not open for  business.   The door was locked  and curtains down.     Mr. Holtby  came to the door and looked in.  Dake went around and let him in.  Before letting him in   we discussed the advisability of doing  so as things were then in bad  shape.  Most of the valuable stuff  had been taken out of the showcase.   We had put it in my personal    grip.      Some    valuable  brooches were left in the safe,  and a lady's watch  and chain.  That is all except what we had  personally.- , We each took out  two new watches,  a stick pin,  chain and   locket.     [Here the  watches, locket and chain taken  from each of the men when arrested were' produced and iclenti-  ____l.].______._n_this grip was packed  Dake  and Belmont,   were  duced and identified.]  "After breakfast I joined the  band and Dake said He would return to the store and 'start the  shooting match.' The machine1  was the alarm clock described,  and a piece of soft wood about  six inches long. In a hole in the  stick were wedged three matches  so placed as to touch the emery  wheel at the same time. The  clock was braced with a small  block on the floor to keep it from  sliding. The wood and matches  were soaked in coal oil taken  from the lamp.  "We went to Armstrong and  spent the day there." Witness  here gave a detailed account of  his actions there. He told of  going to his room after the Enderby train pulled out, and changing his band suit for his everyday suit. Sometime after midnight he walked to the top of the  Armstrong hill in the direction of  Enderby in the hope of hearing  the fire alarm. At 2:20 by his  time he heard the alarm and went  back to the hotel and told Dake  as per agreement.  "I was short of money; had $3  and some cents. I expected some  money from Dake. I got a dollar  from him, he saying it was all he  could spare. There had been an  arrangement that I should receive some money in Armstrong  to be used in escaping the country if necessary. I received the  dollar at about 3 o'clock and at  once pulled out for Vernon, first  changing my shoes for lacrosse  shoes. I also took my green suit  but overlooked my band .cap,  leaving it in my room.' I took  my band suit a little way out of  town and hid it in the brush and  then went on to Vernon, getting  there about 7 o'clock."  ' 'What was the object of hiding  the suit in the bush?"  Well, in case the fire was a  failure, most presumably ' you  would be looking for a man in a  green suit."  ' 'How as to your trip to Vernon?"  ' 'It was to be given out that I  was seen leaving accompanied by  a lady."  ' 'I went to the Royal hotel and  had breakfast. About 9 o'clock  T enquired of the clerk for a telephone message.

First we thought  of setting the fire in May, the  latter part. The insurance hadn't  been on long enough. I was on  the road with a s^rip filled with  goods, from which no insurance  could be derived, as it would not  be in the fire, and we decided the  fire should be set the 1st of July.-  "I was stranded in Keremeos  and received $25 from Dake and  a summons to come home. The  insurance scheme was mentioned  in a letter received either in  Nelson or Grand Forks. The last  I saw of the letter was on Dake's  desk before the fire. A footnote  stated that he had put INS. on.  ' 'I came home between the 17th  and 20th of June.

It had previously been agreed between  Dake and myself that he would  phone and tell me either to 'see  that party about that business,'  or 'come back,' this being a signal we had agreed upon. 'See  that party,' meant to escape,  and 'come back,' meant protection. I did not get the phone  message. I went to the telephone  office and called up Dake. I  asked him if there had been a  fire. He said yes. I asked him  if I should 'see that party' or  'come back.' He said, 'Well,  you better come back.' I should  say this was between 12 and 1."  Witness told of going to the  Coldstream Hotel, and a jewelers  and trying to sell a Seth-Thomas  gold-filled watch for $15.  "I was told by Dake that I  could probably raise enough on  the watch to get out of the country." Witness then told of his  return to Armstrong, and getting  the suit from the brush; going to  the hotel for the band cap and  finding that Dake had taken it  home with him. Returning to  Enderby he went to room 15. The  suitcase containing the jewelry  was there then; also his trombone  and band cap, which Dake had  brought home with him. Belmont told how he and Dake  moved the jewelry grip about to  prevent it being found in case the  room were searched. On one  occasion Dake talked to the chambermaid while he moved the suit  case. On another occasion he  was caught in the act by the occupants of the room from which  he was removing it.  Friday night and Saturday they  spent trying to figure out the loss  to the satisfaction of the insurance adjuster. Saturday night  they concluded that if the goods  had been removed before the fire  ' 'we would not get any insurance.  That night we took a quantity of  goods from the grip and placed it  in one of my socks. This jewelry  was to be burnt Sunday morning  but it was not burnt until Sunday  afternoon. I took the jewelry and  burned it in a fire in the rear of  Dick Blackburn's farm, and  brought it back to room 15. Dake  examined __the_ j e wejry_ while, I  was at dinner, and pronounced it  O.K. We agreed to take the  burnt articles that evening and  plant them in the ruins of the  burned building. He went out  driving in the evening, but  promised he would be back soon.  After waiting for. him as long as  I dared, I endeavored to put them  in the debris myself and was arrested. [The sock taken .from  Belmont the night of his arrest  was here produced, and the contents identified.]  Belmont next identified a list  of goods prepared by Dake which  was presented to the insurance  adjuster and purported to show  what was in the store at the  time of the firp. The jewelry  grip was here opened in the presence of Jeweler Stokes, of Armstrong, who had made an inventory of its contents, and the pivot  polisher identified. It was last  seen by Belmont in the bureau  drawer, in Dake's room.  The cross-examination of the  witness elicited nothing new, it  apparently being the object of  the attorney for the accused to  ignore Belmont's story, and  question his character. The basis  on which he worked for Dake,  was explained. He took the goods  at Dake's lowest selling price,  and pocketed the difference between this price and the price at  which he sold them.  L. B. Stokes, of Armstrong,  who had been employed by the  insurance adjuster to make un  inventory of what had been recovered from the fire, also the  contents of the suit case, identified the various exhibits.  W. T. Holtby was next called.  He wrote the insurance  on the  stock.   Dake valued it at $4,000  and asked for $2,500.    A policy  was written for this amount on  June 4th.    On Wednesday night  before the fire he called at the  store in passing.. The door was  locked and blinds down.   Dake  came and opened the door.   He  did not notice anything to arouse  his suspicions when the fire came.  July 1st he was in Armstrong.  Met Dake after the train pulled  out and asked him to ride home  with him.   Dake said no; he had  no overcoat, and the ride would  be disagreeable.   He met Dake  on his return to Enderby after  the fire.   Asked him about the  regular jewelry suit case, as he  understood it had been packed  ready for a sale trip.    He said?  "It's gone with'the rest," and  bursted out crying.   The safe in  Dake's store was a large one,  capable of holding all of his valuable stock.    Frequently he had  noticed that Dake neglected to  put his stock in the safe.   He  seemed to be reckless in this respect.    Witness    was present  when safe was opened after the  fire.   There was very little in it,  excepting the  repair watches.  Saturday afternoon Adjuster  Lye instructed him to get men  and rake the ruins.    The work  was to be done on Monday.    He  told Dake and Belmont Saturday  evening, and asked Dake to be  on hand or be represented.   This  was to be done to find the suit  case, and discover what amount  of stock had been destroyed. He  was present when the suit case  was found.   He would infer from  the position of the steel  bands  that the suit case  was closed  when burned.  "Did Dake make any comment  about the suit case being found  with nothing in it?"  "No."  On the night before the fire,  when he dropped in to see Dake  he did not observe that he and  Belmont consulted before admitting him. Up to the time of  the fire, Dake's reputation had  been good.  Geo. Bell was next called. His  testimony related more particularly to Dake's financial standing  and  former  business  dealings.  3rd and tried  Seth-Thomas  ing of July 2nd or  to sell him a new  witch for $15.  "As a watchmaker, do you  think you could so adjust the  wheels of an ordinary alarm clock  as to make it" take 18 hours to  make one revolution of the hour  hand?"  "I think it could be done, but  I won't say I could do it."  Wm. S. Thompson testified to  seeing Belmont in Vernon, in  substantiation of Belmont's story.  So did Special Constable Griffin  of Vernon.  Jas. Mowat produced the office  records showing that Dake had  at 10:20 on the morning of July  2nd, called up Belmont at the  Cold Stream hotel, Vernon,  by long-distance telephone, but  did not catch him there. In the  afternoon Belmont called up  Dake, and Dake answered the  call.  Harry H. Baxter, who occupied  room 18 with Thos. Brash, Saturday, testified that Belmont came  to the room that evening and  took a suit case from, under the  bed. This corroborates Belmont's  story.  Albert Wilson  was  called to  testify to his meeting Belmon  Sunday evening, emerging from  the road leading to the Black-,  burn farm, where it comes into  the Mara road.  Special Constable Hornsey, H.  W.

Shortly before 12 o'clock Saturday night the evidence for the  Crown was in, the concluding  evidence being letters from the  Trader's Bank of Winnipeg demanding immediate settlement  by Dake of his obligations to his  creditors, and advising him to  either bring on an auction sale  or go into liquidation.  No defense was put in and the  accused was committed for trial.  Monday the case against Belmont was brought on. Owing to  the absence of witnesses. postponements, were granted, and his,  formal commitment was not read  until Wednesday.  When Dake was arrested he  is reported to have had $250.00  on him.

I had taken solution of arsenic, had applied various ointments,  and tried all sorts of things to obtain a  cure, but in vain. Zam-Buk, on the contrary, proved highly satisfactory, and  cured the ailment.  "I have also used Zam-Bulc for itching  piles, and it has curwl them eompleUy.

OXYGEN   FOR   ATHLETES.  An EnglislTphysician lecturing before  thc London Institute on thc use of oxygen in athletics said that athletes used  up their oxygen faster than inhaling air  could supply it. The beat of the heart  and pulse was reduced and the blood  pressure raised after inhaling oxygen.  He had induced two runners to experiment, and they overran their own  records after taking oxygen. Hc thought  taking the. gas before an athletic event-  would lead to record breaking.  All athletes are exhausting their  hearts by using up oxygen faster than  theytlcan replace it and their hearts an.  damaged for want of it. If they took  oxygen before, during and after tbe  game the heart, lie said, would be restored and they would not suffer the ill  effects of their exertions.  ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������  Keep Minard's Liniment in '.!.e house.   _-���������������������������-.

E. Waby, Enderby  An Open Letter  Editor The Enderby Press:  Dear Sir: I feel driven to protest against your editorial of July  5th, commenting on the Sigel  murder case, New York. I was  not sorry that other things  crowded out my letter last week,  for I had hoped that you would  make some amends for the editorial in question, and that no  further protest would be called  for. Your only word to those  who objected to this editorial is  a suggestion that they have  "brain-storm." You can hardly complain if those whose moral sense was  already offended look upon this as a  further insult.  What do you suppose the Christian  men and women of Enderby think of  your statement that men and women  fervent in religious passion are usually  very sensual? Enderby is not radically  unlike other places. Is your statement  true here? Can you be ignorant of the  fact that the great antidote to sensuality  is the i_ligious passion?  Your remark about the "pulpit extremist" is indecent. And if it were  true to the facts, your conclusion would  still be strange. Surely you know that  the purest home life is often found  where the family circle is large.  You "knew of a missionary." If  there are any men and women whose  lives have been especially heroic, devoted, pure, they are the missionaries.  If. there are any whom every instinct of  chivalry in us ought to protect from attack, they are the missionaries. Avery  few of them have gone astray. Knowing the debasing surroundings in which  they live willingly for the sake of the  good they can do, a man of fine feelings  will feel genuine sorrow if occasionally  one goes wrong. But to some men the  very few who fall before the dangers of  their work are of greater interest than  the vast majority who never fall.  The thinly veiled indecency of your  remark about the camp-meeting is perhaps the grossest in the whole article.  The camp-meeting is open to criticism.  But what you insinuate about it is false.  And if you ever found such conditions  as you suggest (which I. doubt) those  conditions were entirely exceptional. Is  the indecent exception of more interest  to you than the undeniable good that  has usually followed the camp-meeting.  More, if such things as you insinuate  ever did occur, they were the work of the  hangers-on, not of the "fervid." And  to attribute to the camp-meeting all the  evil of those who attend it, is as logical  as to blame the Christian church for the  vice of every man who ever steps inside her doors.  Concerning Chinese missions in our  cities. They have been one of the  hardest problems of the church. The  results are confessedly unsatisfactory.  The method of providing women teachers for Chinese men is not used in  China; has not proven the best in  America, and is being discarded. It  has been tried in America because it is  easier to secure female than male  teachers of leisure and ability. But it  is not true that the Sigel case is a usual  case in all except the murder. For  several years I was closely associated  with the headquarters of the missionary  -work^of'the'Methodist'churchrand^was1  intimately acquainted with her workers.  And if any young   woman   was ever  ruined by her Chinese mission work in  that church, I have yet to hear of it. I  have no doubt that some of the largest  church organizations could affirm that  no such disaster has ever occurred in  connection with their work.  But why pursue this matter further?  Most of your article was unfit for publication, and is unfit for public discussion. The real question is not whether  Chinese mission work in our cities is  open to criticism. The real question is  whether you are justified in making an  admitted disaster in missionary work  the excuse for an editorial that is  wholly false, grossly indecent, an insult  to every earnest Christian in the community, and a polluting influence in  every home into which it enters. Your  article will do no harm to thoughtful  men. But it has very great possibilities  of harm to those who are not yet capable of reading it with discernment.  One more word. For this letter I  have no apology to offer you. If I had  written still more strongly I should owe  you nothing. But there are others in  Enderby whose opinions I respect, and  whose confidence and esteem I covet.  Before these condemn this letter as  harsh I hope they will read again your  editorial, and ask themselves in what  other terms it can be truthfully described. Yours faithfully,  W. A. Gifford.  Enderby, July 10, 1909.  [In the fifteen years that we  have been doing newspaper and  essay work, we have never seen a  professing   Christian   misinterpret, misconstrue, and falsify the  meaning and purpose of an article as this reverend gentleman  has the editorial in question.   In  his anxiety to condemn he has  not    touched    the    shallowest  thought upon which the article  was builded.     He  has  set up  evil men of straw and torn them  down again.   He has worked the  shell game upon himself.   Below  we reproduce the ' 'objectionable''  editorial that has given this good  man the rabies.   Read it and you  will see wherein we have been  misquoted and the article falsified.   From the very commencement of his protest he has drawn  upon his perverted imagination  for the cause of his vaporings.  His reference to "brain-storms"  is purely the imagining of a man  looking for something.    "Enderby knows what a "brain-storm"  is now," had no more reference  to the storm playing in this man's  belfry than it had to a storm in  Egypt.   He  "thought" that is  what was meant, just as lie has  ���������������������������' 'thought'' a mountain of evil into  an article that does not and never  did exist.���������������������������Ed.]  "The religious passion ia akin to, if not the sister of, the sensual pnieion. Men and women fervent in one are usually very hot in the other. The  man or woman who goes to the extreme in one, is  not less intemperate in the other. Note the ever-  increasin_ progeny about the pulpit extremist's  heels, and the wake of little-ones that follow unsanctioned the fervid camp-meeting. I knew of a  missionary who was sent to Christianize the Indians away up in Alaska. He was a fervent worker  ���������������������������always hot upon the evil one's trail, and florid in  his sin-damning pyrotechnics. He used to work  over-time with the Indians to show them the sinfulness of their way, and to keep the balance true  the Indians would point to his poor wife and then  to his progeny, seldom more than a year between  them, and with the stiff smile of a savage man  speaking: of a fallen angel, they UEed to express  then_olve9 something- like this: 'Heap big man  of God no doubt! much better Indian no doubt;  but allsame Taurus for sure!'
