indulged in by the world about us that
are sins we no longer tolerate. so our
clariti conscience now demands that
our life shall be purged of these con
ventionail and reputable evils. And in
this task we are not helped by the ap
proval of public opinion. But there is
another selfish satisfaction that does
help us. It is the sweet satisfaction
of feeling that we are gaod i.l are
deserving of all the happiness the Lord
has in store for all who are good. This
feeling takes many forms inl tihe mind.
but in general it is the feeling th::It we

All lower satisfactions.
So. when the hunger for a better ife
ias been thus far quickened in us. this
:s the wtay in wlih we are always
tempte(d to satisfy it. It is described
ere as t temptation to make the
stones of the desert into bread. The
stones of the desert are the aspect th:t
zpiritual truth takes oi when it is ap
prehended by the natural mind or the
elf-life. Tils is the aspect that spirit
.inI truth takes oi in the letter of the
vord. which is truth adapted to the
owest spiritual needs of aen. There
eward and punishument are presented
is the motives for refraining from evil
And doing right. It is an appeal to
vhat is called enlightened selfishness.
This aspect of the truth is necessary
o start us oi the way toward the
icavenly life. But to convert these
toies into bread is to be permanently
atistied with these purely sellish as
ects of truth and with tils selfish
tage of right living, this doing right
nd refraining from wrong doing for
he sake of the approval of others. and
or the sake of the self-satisfaction it
tffords. To stop at this point. to be
ontent with this attainment, which is
L temptation that confronts us all
gain and again. is to appropriate to
mrselves the letter that killeth and to
Jhut our eyes to the spirit that make'th
live. For it is making the letter of
he food into bread in this way that
akes it destructive of spiritual life.
The Lord's answer to the tempter
eaches us how we must meet this
emptation. This answer is quoted
romi His words of warning to the chil
ren of Israel when they had just
assed through their forty years of
rial in the wilderness. To them- He
aid. "Thou shalt remember all the
rays which the Lord thy God hath led

These words. now quoted in part by

The present proposal is. as Mr. Walk

his remarkable testimony the other
day before the Senate Committee at
Washington. to crystalize flexibe and
justly discriminatory rates Into fixed
Government rates which cannot be
changed except by the intervention of
some Government tribunal. and by this
very process to increase "the tempta

and the lawful rate in order to meet
