Considering that almost exactly one

Russian marksmanship may be held
to be fairly good, in view of the primi

C'hrist nas a comforter iand told him

It is a great aid in opening conver
sation with strangers to have witth you
a variety of leaflets or gospel cards.
You can hand one to a person saying.
"Would you like something to read?"
If he does not express an opinion, you
can give him another, saying. "This
one is a littlo different." or "Here is
one which I think you will enjoy." By
this mean you gradually become ac
quainted, and by and by you can give
him one which presents the way of
salvation plainly, and ask him if he
has accepted Christ as his Savior.
Bitting in a hotel in Denver I was
reading a newspaper. By my side sat
a young man talking with two others.

a little card entitled. "Why Do You
Swear?" I laid it down on the a in of

to do it. but you s.e I am a newsps.
