Zurich to Geneva anti Calvin.
After a week at Zurich at the
World's Sunday School Conven
tion, Wednesday morning, ?Tidy 16,
we aiv off f >r Luceme, but not
quite all the 80 of us. We eighty in
tour two had been together ?ince
June 13 when we boarded the Cas
sandra at Montreal. Now on July
16 a few dropped out to pro on far
ther away from America. The most
of us came to Lucerne, a little west
of south Zurich, which put UH
United States people a few railes
nearer home. Thia is the beginning
of our homeward journey.
We traveled west of beautiful
Lake Zurich then north of Juger
Lake. As soon as we reached Lu
cerne, which nestles at the western
end of Lake Lucerne, we took ship
on the Like to go to a point from
which we could go upon Mt. Ri^i
on cars. Magnificent Heenes were
ours as our little cara climbed up
the side of Ritfi, 5,900 feet above
the sea level. At the summit we
h oked down upon several fine lakes
and up to the greater mountain
peaks beyond. Then the cloud*
came gradually over us shutting out
the view and we found ourselves on
July 16 in rain, wind, hleet and
snow. In the afternoon we went
back to Lucerne.
Lucerne is in the heart of Switz
erland. It is beautiful for situation,
lying at the western end 'of the
beautiful lake Lucerne. Beyond the
lake lie the Alps. We saw the fa
mous Lion of Lucerne. The Swiss
are faithful unto death. The Swiss
yu a rd died defending the French
king. This great statue of a lion cut
in the rock cliff dying with the
broken spear in bis side commemor
ates this faithfulness.
At 3:15 p. m. July 17 we are off
by train for Interlaken. The last
part of the trip is made by ship on
lake Brieny. Interlaken lies south
west of Lucerne, with Lake Brieny
to .east and Lake Thun to west.
Looking south you see Jungfrau
rising to a height of 13,669 feet.
Tomorrow we are to go up towards
it beyond Scheidegg, 6,548 feet.
Friday July 18 dawned fair. Good!
Many tourists wait in Interlaken for
daj ? to get a fair day for the Jung
fiau trip. We start at 9 a. m. at
9:30 Mrs. Walker and I read a let
ter bringing the sad news of the
death of our presiding elder, Rev.
W. M. Duncan, June 9. He loved
the good and the beautiful. I learn
ed afterwards that the day before
this Jungfrau trip, my dear confer
ence class male. Rev. E. A. Wayne
Great ..tain peaks tower
above f >icgg in nearly every
direct1 Wot far above Schei3*gg
I we .?ito an ice cave extending
nea.:? 200 feet into the mountain
side. Saturday morning we leave
Interlaken for Geneva. This morn
ing I inquired into the radiopticon
question. On reaching Kew York I
looked into the working of tbs ra
diopticon. I first thought that it
would not be satisfactory for a good
sized audience, but on making a
second trip to the radiopticon firm
accompanied by Mrs. Walker I
got advice from her to buy one. I
finally did so, and it is giving great
pleasure to our Thursday night au
diences. I have at this writing, Feb
ruary 6, 1914, given about a dozen
illustrated Thursday night talks.
On Thursday night, February 19
we reach Paris.
On our way from Interlaken to
Geneva, at 10:50 we changed to
electric cars. At Lausanne on the
northern shore of Lake Geneva we
tcok ship and sailed twenty-five
miles to Geneva. The most of the
southern shore of Lake Geneva be
longs to France. Switzerland owns
the northern, eastern, western,south
western and southeastern shore. The
city of Geneva lies at the south
western corner of the lake in a little
nose of land almost surrounded by
France. It looks on the map like a
pig's nose in a potato patch. Lake
Geneva stretches fifty miles north
east of Geneva; ifty miles to the
southeast rises the highest peak of
the Alps, 15,782 feet, Mont Blanc.
Zurich with nearly 200,000 popu
lation is tho largest city in Switz
erland. Geneva with 125,000 is the
eesoud city. Early in tho sixteenth
centuiy Geneva wai a city of 12,
000 people. The reformer, Farel,
visited the city, but was expelled.
He then sent Froment to teach. The
doctrines of the reformation were
publicly preached by From entear
ly in 1533 in Molard square, Gene
va. It was ray privilege to locate
this square and have a picture tak
en on this historic spot. Farel soon
came back to Geneva The work
grew so much that he prayed for a
helper. About this time John Cal
vin then twenty-seven years old
spent anight in Geneva on his way
to Germany. Farel went to see him
and asked him to stay in Geneva
and help him. Calvin replied that
ho was there for only one night.
Farel insisted. Calvin pleaded his
plans for travel :iii<I Mindy, and Ids

God's curse upon Calvin's plans if
he refused to do God's will, ('alvin
asked for tune to pray and think.
He then decided lo work in Geneva.
He spent nearly all the remainder
of his useful life as a citizen of Ge
neva, as a preacher, lecturer and re
former. 1 went into his church, saw
bis straight back chair in the cathe
dral and visited the Calvin muse
