Pathos in Abandonment of the

Agricultural college, spoke of it as a

George B. Ellis, for ten years secre

says it Is a result rather than a

both a cause and a result of the loss
of farm population.
But the striking fact is that it is
going on. That the number of
churches in the country that have
been abandoned will reach into the
hundreds is the declaration of these
men, all three of whom have studied
conditions carefully and Intelligently
One of the deacons of an abandoned
church was asked by a fellow mem

change in church attendance meant.
"I'll tell you," he said. "It has
been my observation that religious
worship is not the only motive for go

have thought it was not the motive
at all. The social side has been a
factor. I have more than once heard
men start negotiations for a home

"THE SPIRIT OF THE STORM"

Copenhagen.-Stephen Sinding is

of the conception of this great work,

of our Norwegian mountains. Down

It required forty years of thought,
