The Fine Art of
Saintliness
By REV. LEW W. GOSNELL
Assistant Dean, Moody Bibi?
Institute, Chlcapo.

TEXT.-Ye became iollowors of us and i
of the Lord ... Ye were ensamples to
all that believe tn Macedonia and Achata.
For from you sounded out the word of
the Lord.-1 Theas. 1:6-J<,
In these vernos the npoatle gathers
three Illustrations of the Christian 1
life from ns immy .
>?#W%I?W branches of the
/? ' ' '? hne arts.
A/- 'ti The first ls (
|P% .^x;.M taken from the
IMP* JfPs^'^sS drama. To he

have Indorsed tho

ISP^^T^ One needs oidy to
^?|^P * JL per notices of the
^y?i**' jj??k plays given to
tf???k. j&sj???, (,ay lo ^e con"
* vi need of this.
Nevertheless, Paul linds an Illustra
tion of the Christian life In the drama,
for the word "followers" means Imita- I
tors, those who study from life and
attempt to copy someone else's activ- j
liles. The Thessalonians had thus
imitated the tlrst missionaries to
their city, and in so doing had found ;
themselves following the Lord.
t lt ls evident they must have been
Impressed thal the missionaries' mes- j
sagt; was one of vital concern, for
they received ii in much afllictioh,
albeit with Joy of the Holy Chest.
It is only such an Impression which
lends men to become Imitators of oth
ers. Wo know a man who for years
lins done business in thc most bus
tling center of Chicago's traille. Ho
bas consistently adorned thc doctrine
of Christ In his dally walk, so that
it is not surprising those about bim
have been Impressed, One day, a bus
iness associate called up this man's
pastor und asked him if he could tell
him how to get the same kind of re
ligion this man had I Ile became un
imitator of him and thus a follower
of the Lord.
But Imitation may bo outward only.
Indeed, a hypocrite, according to tho
meaning of the original word, le a
"play-actor"-another Illustration from
the draipn I Hence, Paul uses an ad
ditional figure, which goes deeper.
From the Sculptor's Art
He calls these believers "ensam
ples," that ls, examples or type?, a
figure taken from the sculptor's art.
Tbs term suggests, not temporary
likeness, but permanent form. More
over, this form Is implanted by n
ferro from without. A man might be
come au imitator largely by hU own
efforts, but au "ensainple" must be
fashioned by the great Sculptor.
"We ure His workmanship, created In
Christ Jesus unto good works." Re
ligions made by men tickle human
vanity by exhorting to effort, to .self
realization, and tell men what they
may make of themselves. The Gos
pel cuts tho nerve of nil self-confi
dence, and assures men they are sin
ners and must have a Savior. Such
a gospel ts repudiated today, but wo
may still say with Paul, as he wroto
to Home : "I am not ashamed of
the Cospel of Christ, for lt ls the pow
er of God unto salvation to every ono
that bellevetb."
Nomico that this figuro from the
sculptor's art looks two ways. N'ot
only must the ensumple be fashioned
by a force from without, but when
fashioned, lt becomes a pattern for
( others. So, bearing the likeness of
Christ ourselves, we nre to impress lt
on others.
The Inst figure Paul uses is taken
from the art of the musician. He re
minds his converts that from them
"sounded forth" tho Word of the Lord.
The particular referenco ls to the her
ald's trumpet, with Its echoes linger
ing on the air. Doubtless, they
preached the gospel, but better still,
they lived lt. This spoke In trumpet
tones, and the sound was heard. Not
only In tho province of Macedonia,
whero they were, but even lu Achala,
where Paul was, mon were tcllln? of
this remarkable company who hnd
turned to (Jod from Idols, to servo
the living and true God, and to walt
for Ills Son from heaven.
The Music of Redeemed Lives.
Genuine goodness ls more effectlvo
In promoting tho work of God than tho
most finished orations, but tho ideal
* testimony ls that in which lip timi life
combine. Thc writer recently sat In
the olfice of a famous rescue mission,
and overheard the dictation of a
letter to n yo :ng Christian. The plain
woman who v as attempting to dictate
it had been wonderfully! redeemed.
Some years ago, she bad reached such
* depths 'that her children were taken
from her. Finally, when there was
no humnn hope for her, the Lord In
His great mercy saved her. She has
become a most useful Christian work
er, the very embodiment of goodness.
The letter we overheard her dictat
ing wns not marked by any literary
? beauty. But ns she spoke lovingly
atid gratefully of her Savior, we found
the tears starling, ns we thought of
tho depths from which she bad boen
lifted and of the way In which she
has been adorning the doctrine of God
in nil things.
Are our lives and testimony such
t as to Impress them Inn! know us that

sweet music of a herald's trumpet?

HAH DIN? AND MCKINLEY GIVEN
Equal Praise in Ohio, Native State
of Hot h Presidents.
Niles Ohio, June 22.-The nation's
President and a martyred President,
both Ohio native sons-Warren G.
Harding and William McKinley
were showered with equal praise at
the unveiling of a bronze bust of tho.
former hero last week.
While Vice President Coolidge and
Secretary of Labor Davis, Governor
Davis of Ohio, and Congressman John
G. Cooper, of Youngstown, extolled
the lives of the living and the dead
Presidents from the shadows of tho
white marble building, the gigantic
statue of the martyr gazed solemnly
and majestically on the throng that
gathered in the sweltering sun to
pay homage.
Similarity of character, purpose,
ambitions, achievements and lives of
the two were themes of the addresses
of the speakers, on which they dwelt
at length.
McKinley set before thc country
not only an example of political wis
dom, declared the Secretary of La
bor. "He gave il an example of
moral lire. Ho touched tho fainting j
moral strength of the people, ho put
tho lire of Iiis own will to theirs,
and they laughed at their foolish '<
fears, and went forward airain with
la new vim, and prospered as never
before.
J "Now again we have before us a
leader with the pure faith, thc same
high confidence in tho strength and
purpose of our people. Already tho
! hopeful, helpful, reassuring words of
I President Harding, reflected back on!
I the national faith that elected him, i
have had a quickening effect. In his ?
few short weeks of office President
Harding has shown the good will of.
McKinley, the patience and forbear-!
ance of Lincoln and the drive of the
lamented Roosevelt."

Washington, Juno 23.-Tho alti
tude of Middle Western bankers and
financiers toward the present busi
ness situation was detailed to Presi
dent Harding to-night at the second
of his conferences of "best financial
minds."
A score of prominent figures in tho
Middle Western business world were
ibo President's guests at Hie dinner,
and they are understood to have giv
en him advice regarding the particu
lar needs of the domestic inland
money market. The viewpoint of the
International bankers' group was pre
sented at a similar dinner several
weeks ago.
Although details of what took
place during the conference woto
held in confidence, it was indicated
that the conservation of American
homo trade as distinguished from
expansion of exports furnished one
of tho principal subjects of debate.
The export sido is said lo have boen
emphasized at the first dinner,where
[Oastern bankers made up tho com
pany, and some of (hose present to
night are understood to have im
pressed upon tho President tho ne
cessity of giving adequate attention

APPLES FROM ANCIENT TREE
auld to Have Been Planted Ninety.
Five Yeare Ago, lt Still Beare
Dellolous Fruit.
Two apples were picked by A. A.
Quarnberg at Vuncouver recently
from what ls said to be the oldest
apple-tree in the Pacific Northwest.
The tree ls 95 years old, and ls a liv
ing monument to the romantic days
when tlie Hudson's Hay company ruled
over a vast territory within the Uui
ted States.
Sailing around Cape Horn In 1S2G,
a Hudsou's Bay company employee
ate an apple. It sccmod such a deli
cious apple after his long sea diet of
salt horse and hardtack that he
planned to raise other apples like lt
in his now home lu the wilderness.
He dropped the seeds In his vest-pock
et and forgot nil about them. But they
were discovered by the tailor at Fort
Vuncouver, to whom he turned over
bis clothes to mend. The tailor gave
them to the gurdener, who planted
them, and the trees that grew from
them were the ancestors of the
flourishing orchards which have since
made Oregon and Washington famous.
The ancient treo, now standing alone
on the site of the old fur post, has
lived through ninny changes that made
history. Fort Vancouver was founded
on tho Columbia river In 1824 hy the
Hudson's Hay company as the rival
of John Jacob Astor's pioneer Ameri
can fur post ot' Astoria. For years
under Chief Factor John McLoughlln,
known as "the king of Oregon," it was
the company's transmontano capital,
and Hs fur brigades swept ?is far east
os the Rockies and almost as fur south
us thu borders of modern Mexico.
When nt the close of the "Fifty-four
forty or light" excitement, Oregon was
ceded to the United States, the com
pany abandoned the fort and withdrew
north of the International lino. When
Fort Vancouver was at the height of
Its prosperity, tho company was su
premo lord over three-fourths of North
America.

There Would Be a Bad Time
for Employer.
BIB Blythe was really a gardener.
But he was a generally all round
useful man, who had never been

asked If he could do a thing.
One day the chauffeur, who usually

Bill's employer hud very important
business engagements for that day, .
nnd it was essential that he should be

miss some of them.
So Bill waa sum for and asked If he
would undertake to drive tile cari
i Bill had never driven a cur before,
but he lind helped the chauffeur to

! That was good enough for Bill. He

"Yes."
Remembering the little theory talks
he had had with the chauffeur, Bili
managed to get the cur round to the
front door, and his employer got In.
