Thirty million dollars is the estimate
of the damage done to citrus fruits by
the recent cold wcather in Californin,
according to a bulletin juat issued by
State Horticulturist A. J. Cook. The
bulletin snys that whereoilpot smudges

The stocks of four leading express
companies listedon the New York stock
exchange show a combined shrinkage
of approximately $7,750,000 since Jan
1, when the parcelpoat was established,
says a New York news dispatch. It
looks like fewer and smaller melons for
express stockholders and more pocket
money for the public.
There are several stories going the

some, but according to others, not.
Seventeen-inchice has been harvested in

The extent to which the parcel post is
patronized has convinced the depart
ment that more room will be needeu in
many oflices in order tojfacilitate the

parcel post is proving a decided benefit
to the public; and it is certainly to be
hoped that business concerns all over
the country the rural dealer as well as
the city house will feel the good effect
of having their customers thus brought

The National Live Stock Exchange of
Kansas City are sending out letters
urging the conservation of the cattle of
the country so that the supply of beef
will meet the demands of an increasing
number of consumers. These letters
are sent to the governors of all states
in which legislatures are in session
Legislation is asked forbidding the
slaughter for sale of heifer calves or
cows under three years old, except
those unfit for breeding purposes. The
exchange also urged live stock men of
the country to support the proposed
A small fire with fatal results in
New York moving picture theatre
brings out the fact that 1000 persons
were packed into a space licensed for
but 300. Itis nonsense to say that no
one in authority knew of this over
crowding until.this tragedy; or that this
was, or is, an unusual Sunday night
audience in such places. Two women
were killcd, trampled to death, in this
fire. Why is not the propietor of the
theatre guilty of criminal negligence in
allowing his place to be overcrowded?
Why are not those whose authority puts
upon them the duty of seeing that the
theatres observe their license provision
guilty? In effect these lazy authoritie
are accessories before the fact. Such
catastrophies are not simply accidants,
That will be a great encampment on
the Gettysburg battlefield next July
when an army of Union and Confederate
veterans will meet to celebrate the 50th
anniversnry of the memorablc battl
that was fought there. The camp will
cover over 250 acres and it is expected
there will be 100,000 persons present
But how different the conditions will b
from those which prevailed on the occa
sion of the event that is to be ce
brated! The gathering will be of par
ticular interest to Vermonters, as th
Boldiers from this state played such an
important part at the pivotal point i
this memorable conflict. The Ver
mont legislature appropriated $10,000
for the state's use in tho observance o
the event. The money will be spent
largely in providing transportation to
and from Gettysburg for old soldiers of

Dlutlntjulslictl Corccr of Rov. Kerr
C. Anclorson, D. D., of thc
. Clnss of 1871.
(Continued from lnst week)
'And your point of view is' that tho
origin of Ohristirtnity is to be sought
not in thc influence of a person, but in
thc ivality of Ihe idoas he is supposed
to have cmbotlietl?"
'Exactly. Notin the historical person,
ecaute the groat ldens were in ox-
istoncc among the ancients. To put it
n the wonlsof Augustinc, 'Christianity
xisted among tho ancients.' Thus tho
great ideasof incarnation antlatonemert
were in existence before the beginning
f the Christian era. My argument is
that there never existed a Christianity
which profcssed to base itself upon the
teaching of a mnn until modern times.
The ideas are too great nnd vast and
tupendous to be historically realized in
single personality. Tho only way in
which these great truths could be given
to thc world was through the process of
ymbol and parable."
"I think I undersland. The question
whether Jesus was historical or not does
not greatly affect the issue as to the
validity of these truths?"
I am a f ollower of.'the Apostle Paul, ' '
answered Dr. Anderson, positively,
'and take my stand on his conception
f The Christ Within. It pleased God
to reveal his Son in me.' Pauldid notgo
up and down the cities of the Mediter-
ranean proclaimingthat a great teaehcr
had come into the world a fevv years
arlier and quoting fiom his teaching.
Paul never quotes a single precept or
parable and never records a deed. His
mphasis is upon the spintual process
which the life and death of Jesus sym-
bolized. The atonement, for instance,
is an eternal process. I would rather
say it is a timeless fact. The only way
n which it could be taughtto the world
is through symbolism. Thus you have
the crucifixion. I am disposed to think
that it is not historical. I think it more
probable thnt the betrayal, trial, and
crucifixion are the successive scenes of
a mystery play. Symbolism and para
ble are the means by which the truth is
"But do you not think we surrender
something of the simplicity which ap
peals to the ordinary man by substitut
ing this interpretation for the presenta-
tion of the purely human Jesus?"
On the contrary, I think thatLiberal
Chritianity confuses the minds of the
people. Take, forinstance, the question
of the authority of Jesus. Which Jesus
is meant? The Jesus of the first cen
tury or the Christ who livcs, as Paul
taught, in the soul? If the formcr, then
the source of our knowledge of him is
the four gospels, and the Higher
Criticism has lef t us very little of those.
Tho phrase 'the authority of Jesus
can have power only if it be lef t vague
and uncertain in its mcaning, and this
is confusing and the foe of clear think-
ng. If it be the Christ who dwell in
the soul whose authority we must ac-
cept, all is clear. The authority then is
the authority of the God within, the
authority of the highest we know."
I am conscious as I write that I have
not succeeded in giving Dr. Anderson's
point of view very clearly. It is not,
however, difficult to understand why he
has won and held his place in the reli
gious life of our time. His emphasis
upon the continuity of the spiritual
realities which we associate with the
name of Jesus is almost prophetic in its
intensity and sincerity. We have not, he
says, to turn back to the first century
for the revelation of God. The divine is
in humanity working itself out. More and
more, he told me, he is emphasizing the
spiritual in his preaching. "Thatis the
all-important thing. I would not destroy
symbolism or ritual, but would seek to
redeem it from superstitious uses." He
accepted my suggestion that he was a
spiritual conservative, emphasising the
qualifying word. To conserve every
evidence of the spiritual in every age
and to make those evidences the wit
nesses of spiritual truth to this gene-
ration seemcd to me, as we talked, the
single aim that Dr. Anderson has in
view. Much that he said I have not re
corded, but I parted from him with a pro-
found respectfor the sincerity and purity
of his aim. Insome respects his views
run counter to Liberal Christianity,
but, as he said, his positive aflirmations
differ only in definition from those with
which the readers of The Christian
Commonwealth are familiar.
About $3,000,000 was spent last year
by fraternal organizations, labor unions
and insurance companies in special funds
for treatment of their tuberculous
members and policy holders, according
to a statement issued today by tho
National Association for the Study nnd
Prevention of Tuberculosis.
Sanatoria for the care os tuberculous
members of such organizations have
been established by four fraternal
orders, the Royal League of Black
Mountain, N. C, the Modern Woodmen
of America at Colorado Springs, the
Independent Order of Foresters at
Rainbow Lake, N. Y., and the Work
men'sCirde at Liberty, N. Y. Tho
Loyal Order of Moose have voted to
erect a sanatorium and the Order of
Owlsis cotisidering the project. Tho
Odd Fellows, Elks, Knights of Pythias
nnd Knights of Columbus have all
voted unfavorably ngainst national
sanatoriu but have in each case made
sonic provision for the care of tuberc
ulous mcmbers in already existing in
stitutions near tln-ir homes.
Among the labor unions, the printors
and the printing preBsmon are tho only
two nationnl bodies hnving tuberculosis
sannlorin, the former at Colorado
Springs, and the latter at Hogersville,
Tennessee. Active propaganda ngainst
tuberculosis among their members are
cnrried on also nmong the Cigannakers
union, the National Utotlierliood ot
Operativo Polters, the photo-engravers,
and several otber similar groups. In
some of the unions funds are set aside
for the care of sick members.
Insurance companies are also engaged
in n tuberculosis campaign.
The Metropolitan Insurance company
is building a sanatorium atMt. Gregor,
N. Y., and is spending large sums
every year in caring for its sick policy-
holders. The Equitable, Prudential,
Postal and several others of the large
companies are carring on active edu
cational campaigns among their policy
holders. 3,500 College Men as Scout Mas
ters. New York. Feb. 2. More than one
half of the 7,000 scout masters and more
than one half of thc 340 scout com
missioners who are working for the
physical, moral and mental develop
ment of the Boy Scouts of America are
graduates of college. These facts are
derived from a careful analysis of the
scout masters and scout commissioners
registered with the Boy Scouts of
America. They speak emphatically for
the colleges in the United States, and
show that the college men are more
largely interested in altreistic work
than other men. The proportion of col
lege men interested in the work prob
ably is still greater for out of 5,140
heard from 3,271 are college graduates.
Those and other figures concerning
the men who are interested in the scout
movement will be read next week by
James E. West, chief scout executive
of the Boy Scouts of America at the
third annual meeting of the national
council. Furthermore, business, pro
fessional and other men in the country
are interested in scout activities.
Study of the 0,917 scout masters regis
tered reveals the fact that men of
many different nations are interested
in the training of the boys. 4,164 men
put themselves down as Americans, 330
as Englishmen. Scotch, Irish, Can
adians and German also are represent
ed. There is 1 Hawaiian, 3 Indians, 14
Negroes, 1 or 2 Mexicans and 1 Porto
A further analysis of the scout mas
ters shows that these men who find
insi'iration in taking boys on hikes and
instilling them with the principles of
the scout movement comes from almost
every profession and line of work.
There are 1,972 preachers, G83 teachers,
390secretaries or employees of Y. M.
C. A's. There are 188 lawyers, 14G
doctors, and then, too, 033 mechanics
and 269 students on the road. There
are 1,721 men at various lines of work
The Banner Savings
Bank Town of
On the 4th day of October, 191 2,
there were 702 depositois in the Hyde
Park Savings Bank .ho resided in
Hyde Park and the aggregate of their
deposits was more than a quarter of a
million dollars or, to be exact, $251,
081.59 and the population of Hyde
Park at the last census was only 1453.
If there is another town in the State
of its size that can make such a won-
derful showing we would like to know
it, and we will cheerlully give that
town a free notice commending its
Think of it 1 This means that near-
ly every other. or second, man. woman
and child, mtant, youth, middle-age
and aged person in Hyde Park. 702
out ot 1453, has an nverage deposit in
the Hyde Park Savings Bank of $357.-
Thce is only one conclusion to be
drawn from this fact and that is
that the people of Hyde Park, who
know all about the men who manage
the Hyde Park bavings Bank, have un
limited faith and confidence ln them
They know, from close contact with
them and as their nearest neighbors,
all about their uabits, characteristics,
ldiosincracies business abilities, conser
vatism and banking methods, and they
show their implicit laith in these man
agers by bestowing upon them a mea
sure of confidence and tiust which is
very rarely found. We doubt if a par
allel can be found anywherc.
These home depositors know that
Sct,fetll anu' not high rates ol inter
est obtamed at far away points, is the
uniform and unvarying motto of their
home bank and beheving its managers
to be absolutely trustworthy and safe
they make this bank the custodian of
their spare dollars. Of course the
fact that the bank pays four per cent.
and pays all taxes is very tempting, but
no more so than to depositors in
Nobody knows you quite so well as
your near neighbors. If they have
faith in you it is usually because you
are entitled to their confidence.
