The only Bible used by Christian Sci
entists Is the Bible used by other Chris
tians. Of the six tenets that constitute
the basis of the Christian Science teach
ing, .the first one reads: "As adherents
of truth, we take the Inspired word of
the Bible as our sufficient guide to
eternal life." As an aid to the under
standing; of the Bible there Is used a
text-book. "Science and Health.'appro-
firlately called a "Key to the Scrip
urcs." In view of the fact that vary
ing Interpretations of the Bible have
produced 186 denominations in the
United States, there seems to be a field
for an Interpretation of the Bible radi
cally different from the often, .

Guy Lv Carter, who has recently been I

school Interests of the Disciples of
Christ in the East, will speak at the
Vermont Avenue Christian Church to
morrow morning during the Sunday
school exercises beginning at 9:30
o'clock. He will discuss the child and
his periods of unfolding, with the sub
ject matter that ought to be presented
In each period.
In tatting "Genesis and Geology" as
the subject of his sermon tomorrow
morning, the Rev. Earle Wilfley. pas
tor of the Vermont Avenue Christian
Church, has chosen a topic that has
perplexed many minds and that should
appeal to all thoughtful people. Dr.
Wilfley' takes the view that the so
called conflict between science and
revelation is apparent rather than real
and is due largely to misapprehension
on both sides. He believes that .the
church should welcome all scientific In
vestigation. The subject 1s a big one.
and Dr. Wilfley Intimates that he may
find it necessary to continue its con
sideration In subsequnt discourses.
The gospel meetings at Fifteenth
Street Christian Church now being
conducted by Rev. John T. T. Hund
ley, of Virginia, are well attended. Ten
persons have confessed Christ. Mr.
Hundley is an attractive speaker anil
preaches a vigorous gospel that calls
men to become lined up in aggressive
Christian work. He will continue to
preach through next week.
There will be special services on Sun
day. The subject for the morning serv
ice will be "The Observance of the
Lord's Dav," and the subject In the
evening will be "The Union of All
The ordinance of baptism will be
observed at the evening service. The
sermon on "The Inspiration of the
Scriptures" last night was especially
helpful. The public Is cordially In
vited to all of the services.
The theme of last Wednesday even
ing's meeting at the National New
Thought Center. "What It means to go
into the Silence," was discussed by a
meeting that overflowed the assembly
room Into Miss Gray's private office.
Miss Gray, who led, gave first some of
the Scriptural allusions to the Silence
as the meeting place of God and the
Spirit of Man or rather the place where
man realizes his oneness with God, and
so finds Power. Peace and Poise. Among
these are "Be still and know that I am
God;" "In quietness and In confidence
shall be your strength;" "When thou
nravMt enter into thy closet and when
"thou has shut thy door pray to thy
Father which Is in secret;" For uoa
is not in the whirlwind, nor In the
earthquake, nor In the fir, but in the
"still small voice."
Miss Gray defined the Silence as the
result of stilling all desire, all self-activity,
all demands, denials, and affir
mationsshutting out the world and Us
activities, however good, and waiting In
the stillness for the Wisdom of the
Spirit to make Itself known for the
Will of God to become consciously and
definitely plain, and for Infinite
strength and love to flow Into the In
dividual consciousness and possess It.
Attention was called to the fact that
great men of all times had In the
"Silence evolved their Genius, and Mater
Unlck, Carlyle, Phillips Brooks, Dress
ier, and others were quoted to show
how speech dissipates energy too
often, while meditation and silence fos
ter and bring forth wonderful achieve
ments on all planes physical, mental,
The tonic for discussion on next Wed
nesday will be "The Influence of Our
Unspoken Thought," witn special refer
ence to the atmosphere created by In
dlvldual character and the extent to
which It makes ltsilf felt, apart from
word or deed.
E. C. Cummlngs, a convert of the Gos
pel Mlrslon, will celebrate the first an
rivcrsary of his conversion tonight. One
yrar ago he came to the mission In the
night of an awful blizzard, where he
heard the good news of the Gospel and
accepted Its provisions. 8Ince then he
and his family have been surrounded by
friends, a position of trust and re
sponsibility lias been secured and a new
life opened up before him.
His friends are invited to celebrate
the event wtlh him and the public Is
cordially invited to attend and Icain

spiritually, morally and financially.

The Social Service Conference of the
Archdeaconry of Washington has or
ganized a confidential exchange to se
cure Interchange of Information as to
the beneficiaries of church charities and
so promote economy and efficiency in
the distribution of gifts by church peo
ple and also prevent fraud and deceit.
it is also hoped that In numerous
other ways It will meet the needs of the j
clergy, of church guilds, and societies
that give relief, and of those who de
sire to assist In securing employment,
hospital treatment, homes for child
ren and other help. -
The exchange, through Us secretary,
will endeavor to bring together all In
terested In a family so that every one
can know what the others aro doing,
and co-operation may be secured.
A card index will be kept, but no facts
In regard to the family or individual
history will be asked for or recorded,
except n the cases of known Impostors
or professional beggars, which have
been so reported after a thorough in
vestigation. The files of the exchange will be
open only to the clergy of the Episco
pal Church and to authorized persons.
It Is Intended to cover especially those
confidential charitable cases which come
under the purview of the church and
are not known to public charities. The
exchange, however, will keep in touch
with the Associated Charities so as to
ascertain whether persons receiving
help from church charities are not also
beneficiaries of other charities.
The secretary of the exchange Is Mrs.
Ida Myrth, 1908 Second street northeast,
who may be reached by telephone on
week days from 8 to 10 a. m. She Is
an experienced social worker, well ac
quainted with the charities of the city
of Washington, and equipped to give
all Inquirers reliable Information as to
the best methods of securing help for
the needy, and as to the various
agencies for relief in Washington.

change are provided by the Cathedral.

Topic: "How Can We Better Our
Prayermeetlngs?" Lesson: Matt. 18:
18-20. (Led by the prayermeetlnif
In order that the uninitiated may
know the meaning of the word "pray
ermeetlng," as used in the topic. It
should be explained that this term
does not refer to the regular mid
week prayermeetlng of the church
proper, but to the Sunday evening
seYvlce of the Christian Endeavor So
ciety. This service is always beauti
fully called the "prayermeetlng" of
It is a hopeful and stirring thought
at the outset of the consideration of
the topic that throughout the world.
In all the 80,000 societies of Christian
Endeavor, with their stupendous
membership of four milllpns (about
4,000 of them District of Columbia
Endeavorers), the above topic will be
discussed. One can Imagine the 26,000
Chinese Endeavorers, at the , very
dawn of "China's new day" earnestly
discussing the problem of making
their services so Interesting that
other thousands of young Chinese will
want to attend, and the 6,600 Endeav
orers in the Telugu area of South In
dia, and the 18.207 members of the
South India Christian Endeavor Un
ion, and the 3.132 Punjab (In India)
Endeavorers, some timidly (for many
are newly converted Christians) and
some more boldly, stating their Ideas
as to how the Sunday evening Chris
tian Endeaor services can be mado
more attractive, more helpful, better
adapted for winning other young
people Into the fellowship of this
mighty power for salvation In Christ
Jesus. We should like very much. too.
to have a peep at the thousands of
other earnest Endeavorers In England,
Germany, Jnpan, Denmark. Hungary,
Croatia, the Philippines, Mexico, Cen
tral America, Jamaica. South Africa,
and even a few In Greece and the
4.000 Endeavorers on the Marshall
Islands (more Endeavorers In these
twenty-two Islands. In fact, than church
members, owing to the required pro
bationary period for church-membership),
and In many other far-away
lands. In their Interesting services tills
week, while they discuss this great
topic of how we can make our Endeav
or services better. What a wonderful
result must come from bo much earnest
discussion! What "prizes of the high
calling" are to be strlveif for by this
vast Endeavordom nnd won!
It must be apparent that the Endeavor
prayer meetings can be strengthened by
Increased efficiency among the officers
and committee chairman and committee
men of the societies of Christian En
deavor. One hears a great deal now
adays about "efficiency" In the busi
ness world and In the professions. The
world requires that some men and some
women know how to do at least ono
thing extremely well much better than
other people And so In Christian En
deavor work and the work of the church
generally. We need young people who
will make n careful, thorough, earnest
study of their assigned work as officers
or committee chairman or committee
men, and who will then put their special
efficiency along certain lines Into actual
active, consecrated use. The result will
be Increased efficiency of the societies
as organizations, and of the prayer
meeting services of those societies.
The part to be played (we mean
worked) by the prayer meeting commit
tee Itself In the prayer meeting of the
society Is well known by most thorough
Endeavorers. This committee Is to see
that printed topic-cards are used, to be
ready to take an absent leader's place,
to lead the prayer circle, to conduct the
pre-proyer service, to plan the meetings
with leaders far In advance. The look
out committee has an lmpoitant part In
bettering the prayer meetings by striv
ing to increase the membership of the
society, by distributing topic cards and
invitation cards among all the members
and especially the young people of the
church and community who are not
Endeavorers, by emphasizing the pledge,
by keeping a record of the attendance
and participation In the prayer meeting
of each Endeavorer. by winning the as
sociate members Into nctlve member
ship, by watching and aiding the spirit
ual development of the Endeavor mem
bers. Even the social committee can
strengthen the prayer meetings by
bringing about a "feeling at home"
amonc the visitors who attend. The
social committee can make It easy fori
the visitors to enter the prayer meet
ing room, and difficult for theim to leave
it so tney win want io coma again.
And so on through all the list of com
mittees and officers! each has its own
or his own distinctive and important
work In bettering the society prayer
