PERFECT PATTERN OF CHRIST

It la Christ ratler than God whom
Christianity has held np to believers

than the God of the Jews or of nature,
who, being idealised, has taken so
great and saiatary a hold on the mod
ern miad. Arad, whatever else mer
be taken away from uti by rational
criticism. Christ ls still left; a unique
figure, not more unlike all his precur
sors than all his followers, even those
who had the direct benefit of his per
sonal teaching. It ls of no use to say
that Christ, as exhibited in the gos
pels, ls not historical, and that we
know not how much of what ls ad
mirable has been superseded by the
traditions of his followers. Who
among his disciples or among their
proselytes was capable of Inventing
the sayings ascribed to Jesus, or of
Imagining the life and character re
vealed in the gospels? Certainly not
the fishermen of Galilee; as certainly
not St Paul, whose character and
idiosyncrasies were of a totally dif
ferent sort; still less the early Chris

evident than that the good which waa
in them was all derived, as they al
ways professed lt was, from the high

the shipping clerks that every time
they write that they are insulting the
English and every other language?
'Via' can be applied properly only to
the place through which a parcel

Don't Expect Kindness.
There are six sorts of people at
