the dimensions of the missionary
propaganda should commend this
world work of the Christian church.
With $30,000,000 a year being spent for
foreign missions by the Protestant
churches of the world, and with an
army of about 25,000 missionaries on
the field, this enterprise deserves to
rank as really the greatest undertak

its spiritual significance.
Judged by its fruits and is! there

a huge and staggering success. It
has made over in the new myriads of
men and women, transforming the
deepest springs of their character. So
cial and political and educational
usages, hoary with age, have been
superseded by Christian standards. The
very form of great nations has been
changed. An era of world unity has
been brought into existence. The
Christ-laws have been written into the
statutes of the states, into business,
into social relationships and into in
ternational relationships. Whenever

is true that our passing years are rob-,
bing us of the freshness and beauty of
our childhood. This to most of us be
comes a serious thought. We love the
beautiful and welcome those conditions
which tend to pi-rpetuate it; but though
science has sought out many inven
tions and expesded millions of dollars
in anti-wrinkle compounds, yet it has
never succeeded In preventing the
cruel plowshare of time furrowing the
face, life's winters frosting the hair,
nor the mystic smoke of age dimming
the eye. No truer utterance was ever
made by prophet, priest or king than
that made by the old prophet, Isaiah,
when he said: "We all do fade as a

bad our experience in the toen ot
innocence and purity, but our passing
years faavfe separated between them
and us until we bear but little resem
blance to our former selves. The ex
perience of Leonardo Da Vinci in usint
the same subject for painting both the
face of Christ and of Judas, could be
duplicated in thousands of cases today.
It is said that when Da Vinci con
ceived the Idea of painting his won
derful picture of the last supper he
sought some tine for a model for
painting the face of the Savior. He
wanted a young man whose features
bore marks of purity, and after an ex-
tended search he f inal'y chose a young
man who was cnonster m tne catne
dral. The young uan had a noble face,
his demeanor was above reproach and
Da Vinci tised him as a model for paint
ipe the fae of Christ. Shortly after
toe younjf sman went to Rome to study
music; but the temptations ef the
great city were too much for him. He
was led to drink and- through drink
to the commission of many other sins
and in a remarkably short time 'he be
came a veritable outcast.
Wasting the gabstance.
Those Christians, who In the pursuit
of worldly and sinful pleasures, are
wasting the strength which passing
years have brought them, will cer
tainly find occasion to regret it by
and by. One of the saddest sight3 I
ever witnessed was that of a yaung
woman who had sacrificed -faer physical
strength upon the altar ct worldly
pleasures until she had only suff'cient
left to sit up during the day in her in
valid chair. She remained in that con
dition for several years before she
died. Her prolonged illness gave her
ample time for serious thought and re
flection and this led her, like the prodi
gal to true and genuine repentance.
She had publicly confessed her faith
in Christ and united with the church,
but she had' failed to consecrate her
life wholly to his service. Much of- her
time was spent in the pursuit of
worldly pleasure. Simply to have a
good time was the controling passion
of her life.. "Oh, there Isn't any harm
in dancing," was her reply, when elder
heads tried to dissuade her Trom in
dulging in tbat questionable sport,
which they saw was paralyzing her in
fluence as a Christian; yet it was
while engaged in that sport that she
contracted the disease which rendered
her an Invalid for several years, and y
that resulted .n hei premature dea-h.
To one of her girl friends who called
to see her one Sundav morning on her
way to church, shortly before her
death, she said: "Oh, if I could only
so to church with you this morning I
would be the happiest mortal on earth,
but that cannot be. My opportunity is
past. My physical strength is all gone;
sacrificed upon the altar of worldly
pleasure. There's nothing now for me

Age Brings Clearer Vision.
But not only have our passing years
brought us strength of body, but
strength of mind as well. While I
envy the babe lying in Its cradle, its
rosy cheeks and sparkling eyes, its in
nocency and purity; yet I do not envy
it its intellect. It knows so little. I
thank God for the knowledge which
the passing years have brought to me.
I know it is limited and imperfect, a
mere cupful compared with the ocean;
yet it has enabled me to see things in
a different light to what I saw them
in my childhood days. Then I saw
man only in hi1 relationship to time,
but now I see him both In his relation
ship to time and to eternity.
Then I saw the earth, a great flat
surface stretching out to the horizon,
the acme of creation; the object for
which the eun. moon rn' sta - " -all
created, whose mission was to
nurture and cherish it witfi r"-ir "
and light. But now I see the earth
merely as a diminutive cogwheel in the
great mechanism ef the universe. The
primary room, as it were, - where the
rudiments of knowledge are given to
those who will receive them, fitting
them for the higher branches to be
given in the world to come.
Then I saw God as a mighty mon
arch seated upon his throne dealing
out justice only to sinful men; but,
by means of the knowledge which the
passing years have brought me, I see
him now, not as a stern monarch, but
as a kind and loving father, seeking
in every way possible, save that of
coercion, the highest good or man. A

sight in all the world is to see a man

from sorrowing hearts, relieving the
distressed, cheering the disconsolate
and leading the lost into the way of

such a blessed service in fellowship

very unusual sums were put into new

the $400,000,000 mark within a year or
two if it does not do so now.
Churches are Changing Methods.
Those who know say the most strik
ing feature of the year now ended,
among both Protestants and Catholics,
is the advance in methods of work. As
n the industrial world, churches are
wholly remaking their ways of doing
things. Old ways are going into scrap
heaps, along with old industrial inven
tions, and new ways coming in that
produce larger results on less effort.
The Christian associations are leading
"in these new ventures. Churches are
quick, however, to pattern after the
associations. While religious bodies,
and larre ones, like the Congregation
alism and the Disciples of Christ, are
remaking their machinery, that it may

sometimes Episcopalians, do somewhat
better Catholics always do. Indeed, so
great is the influx from Europe and
the natural increase. Disciples show a
steady growth, rapidly forging ahead

ians North for example. Congrega
tionalists, Methodists South, Unitar

of the world, having fts strongest cen

plans for growth. Educational meth

is better organized machinery for
starting new schools. America is car
rying the Sunday school system into
the very corners of the earth, includ
