Thin issue, with the exception
of the locals and advertising, is

composed of the ministers of
this city. Now, dear reader, we
submit it to you for your con
sideration. The Church
And The Press
It is really surprising how little
mention is made of the press in Scrip
ture, that source of information to
which all good people have gono from
time immemorial, to learn how to boil
an egg or prognosticate the weather.
The pilests and Lovites are scored mi
meioifully time and again, and must,
therefore, have been much in evidence
But the pres is mentioned only four
or live times and then very mildly, as
if it were a little in the way, but jio'
at all out of the way, us these other
people were. For instance, Luke 8, 11)
says "There came to Him his Mother
and his hrethrcn, and could not come
at Him for the press " The same thing
is said of the dllHctilty that Zaehaeus
expei iuuued; he could not get at the
Master "for the press." We all know
the zeal and doggod persistence of the
city reporter to got all that is going
on, and we shall here lay all the
trouble at his door and not criticise
the Editor, who was probably afar
There have been times that we can
recall when the press thought the
Chnrch a legitimate target. But for
that matter, so did everybody else.
Advancing science declared her be
nighted, superstitious and inimical to
progress of reason and knowledge. The
medical fraternity would drive ber
from the sick room, lest she i care the
patient to death before the doctor bad
his chance. The financial world was
shocked to aee so much property will
ed and given to her, to be withdrawn
from circulation or taxation. The
philanthropist declared that poor peo
ple were encouraged in being almoners
instead of being taught to be pro
ducers. The press has never scrupled
to air such grievances boldly, and the
fact that today they scarcely exist is
sufficient evidence that the church had
the grace to take her medicine and
profit by Publicity Of Wrong; and t'jat
we take It, is the best excuse for the
existence of the press. Good people,
churoh people, often exolalm: "Isn't it
horrible and,, shameful to see the
papers so full of all the dreadful things
that are going on in the world. Why,
they ought not to be mentioned by
decent people." My dear religous
reader, how would you know where to
strike, to smite the enemy of souls,
if you were left by the press in your
smug-consciousness of personal salva
tion and were allowed to feel no shay
nor responsibility for the general con
dition of morals. If wo be followers
of Him who came to seek and to save
them that are lost, shall we not thank
the agency that points out the lost and
says, "Here is work for you, if that is
what you are looking for," We hope
the press will continue to publish the
wickedness of the world and the care
lessness of the church until for very
shame both are wiped out together
The press does not fall to recognize
much more clearly than in former days
that it is ministering to a Christian
age; that its readers demand the news
of the work and progress of the church
and that matter which is hostile to
that work and progress will be instant
ly resented and will injure the circula
tion of the paper. Nor do we find, any

desire on the part of the press to favor
opponents of the church. The press
'wants the striking news of the world's
finings and of the Church's doings.
A few weeks niro Science, the otllulal
organ of the A. A. A. S. "published an
article which contained an entirely
uncalled for slur upon tholutlueueo of
our foreign missionaries upon the peo
ple among whom they were working.
The next number brought a vigorous
protest from another scientist against
tho use or rattier abuse of his oppor
tunity which had been made by the
first writer. This was doubtless as
cheerfully published as the first article;
and this illustrates the general atti
tude of the press In our country. Thev
hold no brief for the Church, nor for
its few enemies; but are there to
gather and disseminate the news as
such. We have no fault to find with
this attitude. It is the business of
religious newspapers to go much
farther, but they are finding it desir
able today to Insert so much of the
world's secular news as shall keep
their readers in touch with the great
movements of thought and action, he-
ause they recogni.e that such events
aiinot but iutlueiice the Church's
fork either nearly or remotely. The
lut teli is benefitted by quicker and
cleaner trauspoitatiou; more easy and
cheaper communication with her out
posts lit this anil foreign lands; in the
life siuIng inventions and ptactices of
this wonderful age;andcau well afford
to set before her leaders at least a
r.odivtim of such news. There Is no

the pie's, but u uiming unity of pur

EDISON DISC PHONOGRAPH
This new machine is with out doubt absolutely
the finest musical machine ever placed on the market
having many advantages over any other machine of
any make. It has a Diamond pointed reproducer do

record playing twice as long as any other disc record.
The tone is the most natural and no other machine is
in the same class for a minute for fidelity of repro
