LONDON, Oct. 27. (7:50 p. m.)-The
expedition and thoroughness with
which the American commission for
Belgian relief is arranging to distri
bute food among the striken people of
Belgium ia shewn in the following
telegram from Captain T. F.- Lucey,
who ls In Rotterdam arranging for
the shipment of supplies:
"I have made arrangements to ship
by river steamer the first consign

arranged with the Dutch government
for allowing supplies to cross the
frontier and all faculties will be giv

"The American and German con
suls here are actively co-operating
with me. I have received 160 cards
stamped by the German government
in Berlin instructing their authorities
to allow food to be forwarded with
out any interference."
Millard K. Shaler. who also ls In

Again yesterday both at tho morn
ng and eve ning services large con
gregations ga! in-red at ibo First Bap

er. Ur. White. In thc morning his
ubjoct was "The Set of tho Soul, or
Vhat ls In t ho Heart," and he used
.s his text !l ( bron. 0:C-7, "lt was
n tho heart of David to bul'd - an

God purposed that Solomon should
build the house. Nono of God's great
servants have realized their ambi
tions, their dreams. Did Abraham?
Did Moses? Did David? Did Paul?
God teaches this Important truth.
"Lifo ls not measured by what wc
ichieve, but what we earnestly strive
to do, to have a definite purpose and,
to strive with all our might to bring
!t to pass."
He noted, first, the effect on Dav
id's own life. This constant burning
iesire to bring honor and glory tc
God, caused his own soul to expand
in nobility, and sublimo magnetism
.kept true and fine by his dominant
impulse. Men are what they are, not
because they do what they do, but
because of the measure of the ideals
and struggles, and purposes within.
Character depends upon thc aims.
Small selfish desires make small sel
fish people. It la the pathos of hu
man life that men allow themselves
to he cheated out of the possibilities
of their lives by allowing small pur
poses and selfish desires to r-hape the
Every man who honestly and ear
nestly pursues a groat purpose lays
a foundation upon which.others may
build. Solomon built the house out
nf the material collected by David.
We are the architects of the future.
Second. God keens the records. He
gives us credit for our aims and pur
poses. He takes tho will for the
deed. Abraham was credited with
righteousness, because he sought that.
Paul is credited with Christ likeness
because that was the passion of his
life. We should give out souls high
aims and great purposes.
At night Dr. White took for his
subject that most interesting of
themes. "Tim Unpardonable Sin," us
ing for his text Matt- 12, "Therefore
I say unto you whosoever speakeib
against the Holy Ghost it shall not
be forgiven him." He spoke first of
his great love of telling the story of
salvation, and Jesus' love, and how
he dreaded at first to preach of the
doom of sin, and so for years he
would not preach on "The Unpardon
alle Sin." But he felt that there
wen men who ought to bo warned,
and others who needed to be freed
from kisr.rbtd fear.
1. What is it?
2. Who commits it?
3. Why unpardonable?
Two Ideas are prevalent. First,
That it ls some blasphemous word
which we may let slip at an unguard
ed moment- Second. Somo heinous
sin, some concrete deed. He did not
think either. There is a distinction
between speaking a word against Je
sus and speaking against the Holy
Spirit who should como and who was
to be the very spirit of God. Words
of warning. God waa to flood the
world with IJght, giving such revela
tion of himself tn tho spirit of God,
that any one who could persistently
resist the claims of Jesus made clear
by the divine light of the Holy Spirit.
The sin of saying, No, No, No, to
God, after the Holy Ghost has corn?
to you trying to win you to Christ, j
ls the unpardonable sin. One who li
has refused ore* and over again when \
the spirit himself says. Come, come,
