Chicago, I1L. Jan. 12. Business
methods will boom the ordinary
church and mean the saving of Its
life in the opinion of officials of the
Campbell Park Presbyterian church
of Chicago. They base their assertion
upon a two-year experience with their
own church during which time the
weekly attendance grew from 200 to
1000 and changed a building which
was "dark as a tomb nearly all the
time to a "beehive of activity."
"Two years ago our church was
dying." said F. S. Miller, an elder. In
a report of the experiment, "and to
day it Is booming because of the revo
lution in the mthods we employed.
Twenty years ago the neighborhood,
was one of the wealthiest and most
fashionable in the city. Then the
population movements peculiar to
crest cities commenced. The Ameri
can bora families flocked to the
suburbs and thousands of Italians,
Jews. Bohemians. Lithuanians and
others roared in.
"The congregation became smaller
and smaller; the church was nearly
deserted and was dark as a tomb
nearly all the time. Then we decided
to hire a business manager, mas oat
a program and try once more Before
we quit. Today the chtfrch is a bee
hive of activity."

Vienna, Austria, Jan. 12. In Vienna
just now there is as great a erase for
knitting as there was In England
during the war. This revival is due to
Maj. Bateman, the American Red

cheaper for America to furnish wool

MOSQUE STILL IN USE
tVunsdorf. Germany. Jan. 12. A
reminder of tbe time hen tbe former
emperor Wiiliam attempted to pose
as a leader in the Moslem world, re
mains here In the forn of a Moham
medan mosque, which was erected by
the kaiser in the first yeas of the
world war. Eight hundred orthodox
adherents of the teachings of
Koran regularly worship In it.
It Is the only mosque In Germany
and William II built tt for the bene
fit of Cossack and Kirghis Tartar war
prisoners captured while serving with
the Russians and French. An Intern
ment camp surrounds it. Under the
law of the Koran, the mosque must
ner be destroyed.
There has been considerable criti
cism of tbe former emperor for bar
ing erected it and for the present
government for maintaining it. In
reply the officials declare it Is their
duty to give the interned Tartar aa
opportunity to worship according to
the dictates of thetr faith. They point
out that destruction of the mosque
would be a serious offence In the
eyes of all Mohammedans.
