.According to the annual report of
A alter Gilliam, director of religious
work of the Young Men's Christian As

ings, with a total attendance of 1,981,

did not publicly acknowledge Jesus to
be their personal Savior, were led Into
better ways of living as a result of
these meetings. The object or the ex

occupation hampers them In attend
ing church regularly, by meeting them
directly in their places of business.
The whole broad field of endeavor
heads up In a central committee In

of H. A. Thrift, chairman: William F.
Dennett, representing the Washington
Railway and Electric Company's Inter
est: Capt J. J. Hanlon, of Engine 23,

ment: Andrew McNamara. represent
ing the steel plant, and Rev P. W.
Jeffries representing the clergy. Mr
Gillman Is secretary of the committee.
Other forms of community extension
work Include a monthlv church service
for men. conducted In the southeast sec
tion by the Y. M. C. A. under the aus
pices of twenty-five churches repre
senting five denominations; a series of
theater meetings for men in the spring,
and another series of services held In
Lincoln and Franklin Parks during the
summer. The religious department of

One of the most serious of the many
misconceptions which uc have Inherited
from tha dark ag'es Is tliit "1111" Is .1
perversity to be met v.lth punishment
and savage persecution. Instead of what
it really Is, the result of a condition ot
ignorance that can only be dealt with
by enlightenment and education. If a
n,an really knew that an action is
wrong, and that It will Inevitably lie
followed by evil consequences he Is
careful to avoid it. Ho has been told
that the lire of hell will burn him aa
th result of a certain action, but he
does not really know this, and therefore
when he feels the inclination to commit
thf aet. he does so In spite of threaten
ed consequences. It will be found that
everyone who does wrong Justifies the
wrong action to himself at the time bf
its commission, whatever he may think
about it afterwards.
So It appears that "sin" bb ordinarily
understood. Is a figment of the theologi
cal Imagination. What really exists Is
an unfortunate condition of Ignorance
which often leads to Infraction of the
divine law. The light from the divine
wisdom will dispel this Ignorance.

at St. Mark's parish this fait has proven
a success, now that the results of the
canvass can be seen. In tho amount of
money which Is brought In through thp
duplex envelopes, which It was the
object of the canvass to Introduce in
the congregation. The Income for all
purposes for the month of December
Just past, was something over four
hundred dollars moro than the Income
for December last year, and the Christ
mas offering was more than double.
This Is another tribute to the effective
ness of the duplex envelope system In
parishes of this character. There seems
to bo no question but that this Is tho
most effective way of securing money
for church support, as well ,as for gen
