A GREAT PROMISE AND HOW
IT MAY BE FULFILLED
By Rev. J. Charles Villiers
(Church of the Good Shepherd)
There is a promise of great
achievement and high destiny to
Judah in the prophecies of Isaiah
worthy of consideration in our day
and generation. It is this: "Thou
shall call thy walis salvation and thy
gates praise". The walled rity Is hist
orically unknown in these Islands and
in the country of which (hey are an
outpost. Here and there in England
are cities in which there can be seen
the relics of the ancient walls and
gates by which these cities were once
enclosed. They are kept in good re
pair not for any present-day service,
but as reminders of a long ago past.
We have recently been reminded that
the walled city is not yet a thing of
the past in the eastern world, by the
taking of Jerusalem from the Turks
by the British, under the General Al
lenby. We have all read the wonder
ful story of the conquest of Jerusalem,
and, probably, have seen pictures of
General Allenby and his associates
passing through the gates, and under
the walls of the Holy City welcomed
with rejoicing by Jews, Christiana,
and Moslems alike. It was these very
walls and gates that the prophet had
in mind when, he wrote the words:
"Thou shalt call the walls salvation
and thy gates praise". But the peo
ple to whom he addressed these words
were not dwelling within the confines
of the city. For many years Judah
had bee.n in captivity in Babylon, in
ured, and some of the people recon
ciled, to their condition, without hope
or thought of return to the mother
land. Isaiah encourages them to be
lieve such return possible, and urges
them to prepare themselves for It by
faithful adherence to the religious
and moral principles of Judah's na
tional life. Moral delinquency and
spiritual poverty had been the cause
of their captivity. Had they Deen
faithful to their Ugh religious privil
eges and obligations they would have
had a different history. They had
lacked national power in a critical
moment because they had lacked In
high principle at that moment. They
would have new opportunity, and the
best preparation they could make for
it was to get right with Uoa Dy wain
lng in His ways. "Let the wicked
forsake his way, and the unrighteous
man his thoughts, and let him return
unto the Lord, for He will have mercy,
and to God, for he will abundantly
The orophet s message is a promise.
but it is a promise with a condition;
a promise of what shall be the effect
of national adherence to tne lunaa-
mental principles of religion and
righteousness. Without such adher
ence the promise can have no fulfil
ment Gross living, social inertia
materialism, and oblivion to the finer
things of national life will make the
promise non-effective. The nation
that rejects, and derides the law of
righteousness will, ultimately, pay the
penalty of It in national OeDasement.
I read a few days ago a oriniani
essay, by a brilliant writer. He points
out that the tendency or modern civil
ization is for it to be the slave rathei
than the master of Its own inventions
The amazing conquests of original
and applied science, he says, in effect
of the present age have croweded one
another so fast that we have not haa
time to digest and assimilate them,
with the result that many of the which
ought to have been a boon to human
ity, have proved to he anything out
a boon to it but have been so ex
ploited by greed and graft, and l)y
selfish ambition as to become the
cause of untold miseries, and griev
ous national harms. "We have multi
plied conveniences to such an extent,
that we have done little else but pro
duce them, leaving ourselves but little
time to live and enjoy life . We have
been, as this writer puts it, "Gaderen-
Ing" rushing down the high cliff in
to the sea, possessed by the devils
of machinery. "We were rattling In
to a new species of barbarity when
the war came, and may, perhaps, con
tinue to rattle when it is over." I
say, "God forbid". He does forbid.
But where are we to find the humility,
and the moral courage, to heed and
obey Him; to walk in the spirit of
"Salvation", and 'Tralse" The writ
er who depicts so well the Ills of mo
dern civilization says that "Educa
tion" is the remedy for them. But let
it not be forgotten that the civilized
world was never as generally, broad
ly, and well educated as it is today.
Never was there a time in the past,
when the plain and common people
of every civilized nation had such
universal opportunity of education as
they now have. Not only is the com
mon school open to them, hut in most
countries ,if not all, the university,
the scientific and professional school
is also open to them, if not free,
certainly on very easy terms. And
never. In all the past, did so many
avail themselves of this opportunity.
And it Is well that it Is so. for, of
course, education cannot be too widely
diffused. But. after we have acknow
ledged that fact, we have still to
reckon with another one. And that
is, that the world has, perhaps, no
greater menace than it has in the
educated schemer and villain who
takes advantage and exploits the
great multitude of people who have
less worldly wisdom and Baacity
than he has. The present war is a
deplorable example of this. Educa
tion may be a blessing, and a univers
al blessing. To make it such, how
ever, It must have its soul, as its in
ner life, the life of religion. I do not
mean riiere ecclesiastlelsm or sectar
ian religion, but vital religion, the re-
igion which is the basis of the Christ
ianity of Jesus Christ. ''Religion
says the writer I have quoted "as a
motive force is at once too personal,
too specialized to direct ideals, and
control the educational needs of a
modern state", because "It is essenti
ally emotional, and individual, and
when It becomes practical and world
ly, strays outside its true province,
and loses all force". That is a very
narrow conception of religion, but it
is a conception all too common. Re
ligion, properly defined, and Inter
preted in life, has a function far be
yond things "essentially emotional";
or of Individual fancy and inclination.
It has relation to, and concerns it
self with questions of State, with the
conduct of nations, with politics, both
social and economic, including even
questions of tariff. It has relation to
international affairs, such, for .in
stance, as the signing of international
treaties, a relation that will not allow
such treaties to be regarded as "scraps
of paper" which may be set nought,
with impunity. While there Is a
wrong in the world that needs right
ing, a dark place in the earth that
needs the light of Heaven, a place
where injustice, or moral disorder ob
tains, there is need of the high and
holy principles of the Christian re
ligion. Only the truth as it is in Jesus
can free the world from bondage.
THE IRISH BULL
Hat Often Been In The House
Commons And Other Public
Sir Edward Sullivan Is not a vet
erinary surgeon, but he gave skillful
treatment to "The Irish Bull" In a
diverting address, helped by a melli
fluous Irish brogue, to the Royal
British Nurses' Association.
He pointed out that the House of
Commons had been a prolific bull-ring,
and that some of its most distinguish
ed members had released them. Mr.
Gladstone, on one occasion, when in
terrupted in a speech said: "It Is
no use for the honorable member to
shake his head in the teeth of his
own words." In the Lords, Lord
Curzon, speaking on a licensing bill,
announced that "The Interests of em
ployers and employees were the same
nine times out of ten I would even
say ninety-nine times out of ten." In
earlier days in the Lower House, Sir
Patrick O'Brien passionately pro
claimed, "My unhappy country Is
swarming with absentee landlords."
In Dublin at the height of the re
bellion In Easter week, 1916, a small
boy who escaped from Sackvllljo
street described it to his friends as
"alive with corpses." In a pamphlet
Issued by the Irish commissioners of
national education the announcement
appeared: "The women teachers are
being Instructed in plain cooking.
They have had, in fact, to go through
the prot eBS of cooking themselves.
An Irish mother, recommending her
son for a job in a railway company,
wrote: "1 am pleased to say that my
boy Is a nonsmoker and a nonteetotal-
er." Michael Murphy, who had
bought a new pair of boots, said to
his wife: "1 11 never get them on un.
til I nave worn them a day or two."
Sir Edward recalled the case of a
bull made In very tragic circum
stances. A prisoner who was await
ing death at Kilmainham Jail was
taken seriously ill on the evening be
fore his execution. The prison doc
tor was called in. He sent a hurried
note o Dublin Castle to this effect:
In my opinion the prisoner cannot
be removed from the cell to the place
of execution without imminent danger
to his life."
An Irishwoman brought an action
against a neighbor for threatening to
murder her. "What particular form
did the threat take?" inquire.', the
magistrate. "Begorra. your worship
said the complainant, "she threatened
to whitewash the lane with my blood."
An Irish farmer, walking up in the
nieht i.aw an apparition at the foot
of the bed. He reached his hand out
for a gun and perforated the ghost
with a bullet. In the morning he dts
covered that he had made a target
of his own shirt. "What did you do
then?" inquired a friend. "I just knelt
down and thanked God." he said.
that I hadn't been inside it." Lon

Then They Shelled The Nuts
My brother wrote me about a din
ner some of the soldiers gave for two
visitors at camp, members of a famous
Canadian regiment, who were home
on sick leave.
The sergeant had been care rutty
coached about giving the toast, but
became flustered and this Is what he
made of it: "Heher's to the gallant
Eighth, last on the field and the first
to leave it."
Silence reigned, then the corporal
came gallantly to the rescue:
"Gentlemen," he began, "you must
excuse the sergeant: he never could
give a toast decently; he isn't used
to public speaking. Now I'll give a
toast: Here's to the gallant Eighth
equal to none." Chicago Tribune.

Ice Cream One Of The First Things The Hikers Want
A Matrimonial Prize
A young man who, during his brief
career, had never been required to do
very much lubor at home, enlisted
for the pesent war, and Is now In a
training-camp "Somewhere in Am
erica." A few days ago his mother
received a letter from him in which
he said that he had never worked,
so hard in his life, that he had been
doing kitchen work, making beds,
washing and drying dishes, etc., and
that when he returned from the war
he would make some fellow In Califor

To the very smallest detail, the Chevrolet
reflects the ideals of the makers to produce
a really high-grade car at a popular price.
That the Chevrolet is more commonly
compared with cafs selling at much higher
prices is justification for the conscientious
effort of its manufacturer..
The new model Chevrolet "Four Ninety"
Touring Car and Roadster, attain a stan
dard of excellence uncommon of cars at
these prices. This is a claim we would he
delighted 'to prove we could ask no
greater favor than to do so.
Would you have a good-looking car?
The Chevrolet has it in full measure.
Would you have strength? Vanadium steel
is used wherever unusual strength is re
quired. Would you have comfort? Proper
spring suspension together with comfor
table upholstering and roominess meet your
comfort-wishes to the fullest degree.
Would you have power and low upkeep?
The wonderful valve-in-head moter with
which each Chevrolet is equipped provides
power in excess of ordinary requirement
or emergency; and the direct-applicalion-of-povver
principle insures maximum power
on minimum fuel. Twenty-five miles per
gallon is a common thing for this Chcvnv
let. And the car is fully equipped.
Suppose you let us demonstrate that we
have not overstated Chevrolet quality.
