Breaking the Trail.
Winter in the mountains is severe
in its restrictions. Sledging and
travel over the snow-banked trails
are limited to bare necessity. In the
colder seasons the trails are kept open
by shoveling and paeking them dlovn.
When the runners sing intermittent
ly in high. thin voices, the teamster,
with a belt tight around his over
coat and flopping his arms to keel)

But when the heavy snows and rapid
thaws of spring come, teaming means
a battle and a vent'ire with a sudden
termination hanging just above.
Thousands of tons of snow up the

jereiniads over "these time of extreme

The original of "deny" has as its
root meaning "not to seek." "Hold

sought for its power." The world has
much to say about hypocrites. I be

of all propirtion to their numbers.
The conscious hypocrite to-day is a
rare bird. I have made frequent hunts
r him. Despite the most diligent
search, I have seldom found him.
The number of those called hypo
crites. who would rightly be catalogued
as formalists, is legion. They are not
striving to deceive others. They suc
ceed in their striving to deceive them
selves. Satisfied with the appurte

they inquire no further. Attendants
upon the services of the church, mem
bers of it. supporters of its outward ac
tivities, they fancy themselves to be
godly. Branded as Christians. they
but feebly apprehend what disrepute
they bring upon the name by their in
feriority to the real article. Their
gllibility is wrongly taken for hy
poctisy. They submit to the drudgery
of religion to pacify troublesome con
sciences and impose apon themselves.
An important reason for so many
lapses from church membership is be
cause so many become dissatisfied with
a form, yet fail to seek the reality, so
give up all.
Almost every one in this congrega
tion has a form of godliness. You look
good. I find little to criticise in what
you do. for .there is so little you do on
which to base a criticism. The trouble
lies in wvhat you do not. You may
