I believe in the christian denominations
it is my delight to mingle with them as
when a week airo we met with tbe Pretby
ixrmiis ana christian anil together re
celved the communion of the Lord' sup

to the womhip of God and people as
sembling there for prayer, my heart goe
out in God blesning upon them. I never
see the Homan Catholics returning from
their mass witb prayer hook In band, but
what i think of tbeir ainifnty anil thei
longing after Christ, who is the bread o
beaven. There are none wtp make a
greater .truggle for alyrfr than dohe
ionian Catholic. hl(W , ,lh the

for no one is justified by the deeds of the
law, by our own works or siid-ringa; hut
Paul says in Oalatians 8 5: "Ibe just
hall liye by faith." While the Human
ists are too devout regarding the Virgin
Mary, ua Proteatanva dsn Unnored
bar enough. Hbe was human and needed
salvation like all the rest and should not
be worshipped, (till ahe is blisard among
women and should b honored above all
as tbe mother of our Lord. While tbeir
type of Christianity ri fli rs from that of
our and I cannot rndore it. (till for
tbem a for all other worshipper I have
profound respect. But when it come to
national affair, then I meet every en
croachment on their part or that of any
other church for I am unwilling to con
cede to tbem what I can not conscien
tiously k for myself.
In protestantism we have tbe Baptists.
..Presbyterians and many others, all of
whom I honor for their works sske. I
would not fail to (peak of the unswerv
ing loyalty of tbe Lutheran cburcb to tbe
Hag of our country and in cur city tbey
have an institution of learning unsur
passed by any In our land, tbe noble
president of which I greatly honor.
But these christian churche are only
the media through which God pour
bit light and blessiur; out upon the bu
man race. They are the instruments
made use of by divine providence for
bringing men from darkness to light and
binding buman hesrts together. When
a soul is born into the kingdom of Ood it
naturally seeks for local organisation
through which It can bet eipand it en
ergies and grow io grace. To meet thi
demand of various classes of mind tbe
different cburcb organization baye
nuurally sprang into being.
From the day of the Apostle until
now the christian world ha not been
without several denomination or
c hurche and each representing In It
member the great spiritual cburcb of
Christ. Ho today we have more than flv
hundred denomination of christian
spreading the gospel and reaching the
hearts of men by telling of Jeau and
hi love. I love to think of thi mighty
ggreisive army marshalled under it va
rum banner In corps, brigades and
regiment marching against tba power of
evil io every part of our world. And
when in the grand review on tbe great
judgment day tbl army of blood bought
oul ahall pas before the throne it will
not be asked in what part of the army
they aerved, to what regiment, brigade,
or church tbey belonged, but all of tbem
will hear the "well done, good and faith

have been more Intimately connected and
yet our cympalby i strong for all our
fellow soldiers who fought In other parts
of tha army, and it is just so in tbl army
of God. It la your privilege to be a

somewhere amoQX these churche you

uttar surprise the squirrel dulut move, and
the major continued to fire. After repeating
(h operatloo eight times the squirrel fell to
tha grUnd and an avaricious dog grabbed it
and starteu-Vt' the major running after tbe
dog, which Wai 0'ial'y captured. At thi

sioner of 1 cniions Tanner ia out in a long

terof July 24, cn tbe si.lject of re-rating

begins bv saving that at tbe outset of tbe
trouble he wrote Noble a letter in which ba
told bim ba bad made a comparison of

Mr. Tanner then in cominxii'ing on tbs
great stress laid by Secretary Nobis upon
