arA trained him in actual religious

to Bamuel at the early age of It and commissioned him
to la a prophet, the mouthpiece of Jehovah.
When toe note the conditions and criaumstanoes sur
rounding the life of this loy we will not quibble alout
whether the voice that spoke to Mm was audible or inaud

appearance of the Lord, out will readily and reasonably
conclude that it was quite natural for Clad to speak to
such a life. Bis soul was trained to listen to the voice of

of nature through the study of botany,
No book can bring to a man such
exhilaration as the fisherman feels
wftcii he hears tho beauties splashing
in the mountain stream,
T?o matter low mqtty books on as

give such a description of nature's
magnificence as the man icho lies on a

of the forest and watches the stars
twinkling among the rustling leaves.
It is all very welt to read books and
to acquire the theory that is essential
to success, but before success can be
attatned in anything It is compulsory
that there must be a combination of
theory and practical activity.
The same rule applies to Christian
workers. It is a good thing for them
to study. It is a good thing for them
to read the Bible, the best of religious
literature, and to learn to pray. But it
is only when they become actively en
gaged in work for Christ that their
lives become strong forces for good.
In the active lives of the clergymen
and church members there is much
cause for rejoicing today. Every week
sees hundreds of men and women taken
into the fellowship of Philadelphia's
churches because the Christian leaders
are doing specific work, "TralUhltters"
in the "Billy" Sunday tabenxacle are
only smalt evidence of the revival spirit
the evangelist has aroused.
To all persons who desire to see the
Christian Church grow and prosper
there is much cause for gladness.

Mr, ffmlln. who has matt a brhf vitlt fa

ntnpham Ltiotr. tht chamfte ef th antl
Kjuor cause in Alabama.
Tho point I would call to the attention
of tho people of Pennsylvania In con
nection with tho legislative battle over
the liquor question In Alabama Is that,
although State-wide prohibition existed
there four years ago, the liquor advo
cates succeeded In changing this to local
option when tha question came up At
that time. This resulted In the removnl
of tho prohibition law in thrco counties,
namely, Mobile, Montgomery and Jeffer
son, and for three years this condition
tins existed, until nt tho last election tho
sentiment of tho people had become so
strong on tho point that tho prohibi
tion law went Into effect once more, tho
Legislature passing It over tho Gover
This Is significant In showing that tho
people of a State which has once en
Joyed State-wide prohibition will not bo
content under any other condition. Local
option Is far better than nothing to re
strict tho liquor traffic, but it is merely
a stop toward n goal which will even
tually bo realized. "When Pennsylvania
obtains local option It will have taken
an lmmenso stride toward a complete
victory over tho saloon.
Previous to the smashing defeat suf
fered by tho liquor forces so recently in
Alabama, some of the most distinguished
speakors of the "wet" contingent de
clared that the return to local option In
our Stato Indicated that tho Stato was in
favor of tho sale of liquor. Just how
they can explain this statement now It
Is difficult to say. Somo ono mado a tnls-
Another point: Tho history of the antl
llquor light In our State has shown be
yond any doubt that It was the local
campaigns against liquor trafllo which
created the sentiment which Anally led
to Its completo and final abolition. I am
confident that n similar sentiment In
Pennsylvania Is being created which will
have the samo result.
Tho liquor forceB are still fighting In
Alabama. A law recently proposed pro
hibiting the advertising of liquor in any
publications of that State was vetoed by
tho Governor, but the Legislature which
so recently passed the State-wide prohibi
tion law over his veto will, I nm sure,
repeat its notion, and the champions of
the saloon will Buffer another crushing
