TALKS OF LAM
The Evangelism of the Mo
ment Is Bringing El Paso
Churches Closer Together.
It is all layman's missionary move
ment in the church world of El Paso.
Sunday nearly every minister touched
on the subject in some way, and a
number exchanged pulpits for the day.
That the missionary movement the
evangelism of the moment is bringing
together more closely the various de
nominations is evident by a churchly
incident of Sunday.
When the congregation of the First
Baptist church met for the morning
service all were surprised to see Rev.
Perry J. Rice in the place of their own
pastor. Mr. Rice spoke of the layman's
movement, what It means and what it
is intended to accomplish.
Also when the people of the First
Christian church met they too were
surprised. Rev. Robert Bruce Smith
was in the place of their own pastor.
The unexpected visitor told of the mis
sionary movement, speaking along gen
The two pastors had formed a lit
tle conspiracy and exchanged pulpits
unbeknown to their flocks. Such is
the spirit of the new church.

the text in 1st Cor. 4:3: "It is a small

He said In part: "We have here man:

IX THE CHURCHES.
Is Heaven Peopled With a
Scanty Few of the Elect
Is hell populous and crowded?
Is heaven peopled with a scanty few
of the elect?
Now Rev. Bryant C. Preston does not
say exactly that but he does say this,
just by way of advice:
".Let me urge that you take a broad
view of life and of religion. Do you
believe that the vast majority of the
human race is doomed to everlasting
fire? Do you think that only here and
there one will escape the 'forever lost
class? Do you picture hell as populous
and crowded, and heaven peopled with
a acanty few of the elect?"
And here are some of the other things
he said at a meeting of Congregation
alists at the Y. M. C. A. yesterday:
"Any paltry way of looking at life,
or religion Is false, for religion is not
something written in a code, nor en
shrined in a creed, nor housed In the
seclusion of the church, but is a spirit
which permeates thought and daily con
duct, on the street, in the factory, the
store or the bank. The only true
church the prophet practically asserts
has the dome of heaven for its roof,
and the blue horizon for its walls.
"The foot-rule religionist, however,
has still something of a vogue in this
20th century, in spite of the warnings
and admonitions of prophets, poets and
seers. Do you believe in this or that
doctrine? cries the uptodate theological
inquisitor. Do you go to the true
church? Are you tinctured with unl
tarlanlsm? Is the poison of universal
Ism working In your thoughts?
"God's remonstrant angel of progress
needs to again visit us and sweep
these narrow men, with the foot-rules,
aside. How is it In other realms than
that of religion. Take the world of
music, for example. John Stuart Mill
placed his foot-rule of logic alongside
the realm of music There are only
seven notes, he declared, and soon the
time will come when all of the pos-
siD!e combinations of these seven notes
will be exhausted.
"How false an estimate. Music does
not consist of seven notes, but is some
thing beautiful, devinely delicate, like
a perfume, so subtle as to be unmeas
urable. No logical foot-rule can take
the height and breadth of this won
drous art any more than religion can be
compassed in a creed, or a mumbled
set of ritualistic forms and ceremonies.
'Away with this foot-rule of intol
erance. Be assured that not half as
much is revealed in the scriptures as
many Imagine, except in one direction,
and that Is the direction" of the Divine
love. In that clear light will some of
us gaze with wonder at our own feeble
efforts to dam up the stream of God's
majestic thought, and to measure with
our little sectarian yard stick the scope
of His great plan."
Mr. Preston also spoke at the men's
meeting yesterday, his subject being,
"Thou Shalt Not Tempt the Lord thy

Albuquerque Divine . Dis
cusses Evangelism at St.
It was the new evangelism which
was sounded from the pulpit of the
church of St. Clement Sunday morning
by Rev. W. E. Warren of Albuquerque,
a missioner of ability. The Albu
querque rector exchanged pulpits for
the day with Rev. Dr. Henry Easter.
He delivered a strong, masterful ser
mon. "We have been interested in our
selves alone long enough," he said.
"This interest should not be in the
hands of women, girls and boys, but
in the hands of strong, full grown
"When we have a man's job we do
not send a boy to do it. If ever the
work will be done it will be done by
the highest stamp of our manhood. And
it is worth the while.
Must Stand Together.
"The master points out the only
method for the evangelization of the
world, in this age or any other. We
have tried to do it in thy name and
we have failed. Why? Because of
your unbelief our unbelief.
"We have been 1900 years in strug
gling for the evangelism of the world.
No, we have not failed but we are
very far from success. With us it is'
the same as it was with the disciples
because of our unbelief. The army and
the commandant must be one.
"There are two sides, man's side and
God's side. God has done his part.' In
business we take pencil and paper and
figure out the profit. In the evangel
ization of the world what is to be our
profit? It costs dollars and cents and
blood. What is the reward?
"In working on the principle of un
ity, I tell you it is absolutely impos
sible for us to fall in this movement."
Dr. Smith Says He Wants
Companionship of Dis
ciples on Earth.
"Christ longs and prays for the com
radeship of his disciples here on earth
in this life," said Dr. Robert Bruce
Smith, pastor of the First Baptist
church in his sermon Sunday morning
at the Christian church.
His sermon was from John 17:24,
"Father, I will that they also whom
thou hast given me, be with me where
I am; that they may behold my glory,
which thou hast given me; for thou
lovedot me before the foundation of the
world." He said:
"In this intercessory prayer our Lord
shows the deepest concern for His
disciples in every relationship of life.
This particular verse is usually, inter
preted with reference to future fellow
ship and comradeship with the disciples.
But this prayer of Christ is equally ap
propriate to the present life. Christ
longs and prays for the comradeship
of his disciples here on earth in this
life. His disciples are very dear to His
heart. He craved with inexpressible
longing to eat the Passover with His
disciples. The Lord's Supper exists for
the same fellowship.
"Then Christ longed to have His dis
ciples with Him in purity of character,
In humility and service also in vi
carious prayer for the lost world.
'What, could yet not watch with me one
Dr. Smith devoted the larger part of
the sermon to Christ's desire to have
His disciples with him in the world's
conquest. He gave special attention to
the fact In calling the strong business
men from every walk of life into the
great Laymen's Missionary .movement.
The text, he said, suggested a covenant
between God the Father and God the
Son for the world's redemption. He
declared that men need the vision of
Christ to see that this field Is the world.
"Some pepole are short sighted and
see only missions at home; others are
far sighted and see only foreign mis
sions. But Christ has a vision for .all
and for world-wide conquest. He is
conducting a world campaign and He is
calling for volunteers. He longs to
have the church keep step with him and
to share in His work," he concluded.
Rev. A. Gilmore Smith, evangelist for
the El Paso Presbytery of Colorado,
Tex., filled the pulpit of Westminster
Presbyterian church Sunday morning.
He spoke along general evangelical
lines. Mr. Smith also spoke In -the
evening. He will occupy the pulpit

during the first century of Its his

the church at home is better able to
undertake the full discharge of this
responsibility than ever before. .
"The laymen's missionary movement
is an effort on the part of certain

"There is now a feeling that this
task, involving statesmanship of the
highest order, demands the attention
of men accustomed to handling large
tasks lnva large way. We must think
in millions and plan to operate on a
broad basis if we are really to do the
thing that Jesus commissioned the
church to do.
"This effort is sure to have splendid

church from littleness and from selfish
ness: it will emphasize the great verities
of our holy faith and cause us to for
get the petty little things that have
divided us Into rival If not hostile de
nominational camps. It will make us
feel our kinship to each other and to
Christ. Since the Christian religion
arose In the east who knows but that
the east, when once It has It, will be
able to throw upon it a wealth of
meaning which we of the west have
never been able to see.
"The work of evangelizing the world
therefore is the churches' present op
portunity to save herself and glorify
her lord. Anything less as a pro

ask of us, but this he does ask and to
fall to do it is to be disloyal to Him."

PEART TO TIE
When Arctic Ice Became
Too Thick the Explorer
New York, N. Y., Feb. 14. Any pros
pective pole-hunter who imagines he
need simply charter a ship and sail
pleasantly away to 90 degreee., north
latitude should read Peary's article in
the forthcoming March Hampton.? -Maga

sleep-prohibiting fight of the stout little
Roosevelt against a sea packed with
maverick bergs and ice floes run amuck.
In one case it was even necessary to
dynamite the ice, in order to save the
ship from being crushed. (
Nerve Racking1 Experience.
"I think that none of the members
sof the expedition will ever forget the
30 th of August," says Peary. "The
Roosevelt was kicked about the floes as
If she had been a football. The game
began about 4 o'clock In the morning.
I was in my cabin trying to get a
little sleep with my clothes on for I
had not dared to remove them for a i
week. My rest was cut short by a shock
so violent that, before I realized that
anything had happened, I fdund myself
on deck a deck that Inclined to star
board some 12 or 15 degrees.
"I ran, or rather climbed the deck to
the port side, and saw what had hap
pened. A big floe rushing past with the
current had picked up the grounded
berg to which we were attached by the
hawsers, and dashed It against the
Roosevelt and clear along her port side,
as if that 1000-ton berg had been a
toy. The berg brought up against an
other one just aft of us, and the Roose--velt
slipped from between the two like
a greased pig.
"As soon as the pressure was relaxed
and the ship regained an even keel, we
discovered that the cable which had been
attached to the floe berg at the stern
had become entangled with .the propeller.
It was a time for lightning thought
and action; but by attaching a heavier
cable to the parted one and taking a
hitch round the steam capstan, we fi
nally disentangled It.
Surrounded By Bergs.
"This excitement was no sooner over
than a great berg that was passing near
us 'split in two of its own accord, a
cube of some 25 or 30 feet across drop
ping toward the ship, and just missing
our quarter by only a foot, or two.
'Bergs to the right of them, bergs to
the left of them, bergs on top of them,"
I heard somebody say. as we caught
our breaths at this miraculous escape-
"The ship was now quite at the mercy
of the drifting Ice. and with the pres
sure from the outer pack the Roosevelt
again careened to starboard. I knew
that if she were driven any higher onto
the shore, we would have to discharge
a large "part of the coal In order to
lighten her sufficiently to get her off
I again. So I decided to dynamite the
"I told Bartlett to get out his batteries
and dynamite, and to smash the ice be
tween the Roosevelt and the heavy floes
outside, making a soft cushion for the
ship to rest on. The batteries were
brought up from the lazeret, one of
the dynamite boxes .ed out with cau
tion, and BartlPtt and T looked for the
best places in the ice for the charges.
"Several sticks of dynamite were
wrapped In pieces of old bagging and
fastened on the end of long spruce poles,
which we had brought along especially
j for this purpose. A wire from the bat
j tery had, of course, been connected with
j one of the primers burled In the dyna
j mite. Pole, wire, and dynamite were
thrust down through a crack in the
ice at several places In the adjacent floe.
The other end of each wire was then
connected with the battery, everyone got
away to a respectful distance on the
far side of the deck, and a quick, sharp
