Pharisees said, no doubt, first that he

Beware of the inventor of lies. A groat little enemy (Jas. 3:1-18): If there were no tongue, there would he very little gossip, slander or scan dal. Therefore, the tongue should well guarded. Someone has said that the tongue is the best thing in Clio world, because of the good done by kind words; and that it is also the worst thiug in the world, because of the evil done by unkind aud fi'Jwe words. The sin of gossip and scandal ( Ps. 120:1-7): Gossip soon becomes, and scandal is usually deceit and lying; and so either is sin, and should be shunned as one would a viper. What liarm may gossip do? It will certainly harm him who practices it. It is hard to handle tar without being stuck up with it. It is very likely to injure the one talked about. If any evil is said of another it will make an impression upon those who hear and their opinion of the one talked about will be lowered, though it may be unconsciously. Why should we apply the golden rule to gossip? For exactly the samo reason that we should apply it to any other act or word. We have no right to say about others what we would not be willing to have them say about us. How does scandal spread? Almost every one who hears a piece <f scan dal is very likely to repeat it. One tells another, two tell two more, four tell four more, and soon it has spread through the whole community. It is a simple matter to drop a burning match into the dry grass of the prairie, but who can stop the conflagration thus started? Beware of the care lessly uttered gossip or slander. CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR CONFER ENCE. A conference of the Christian En deavor leaders of the South was held in the Second Presbyterian church, Chattanooga, July 11-16, with over two hundred present. More than five thousand dollars was raised for next year's work. It was decided to move the South ern headquarters from Birmingham to Chattanooga. Memphis was selected as the place for the All-South Convention to be held next year. The Conference adopted as one of Its goals the enrolling of as many members of the Army of Patriotic Service as there are Christian Endeav orers in Dixie ,and another is the raising of $15,000 for denominational missions. Twenty-two months ago a five year campaign was started to. organ ize 1,000 new societies and to secure 2,000 subscriptions to the Dixie En deavorer. Reports showed that al ready 1,554 new societies have been organized and more than 4,000 sub scriptions have been secured. The officers for the coming year are: D. B. Curry, Jacksonville, chair man; John M. Gore, Knoxvllle, and Rev. Claude Hill, Chattanooga, vice chairmen; L. B. Brubaker, Birming ham, secretary; W. Roy Breg, Dallas, treasurer; Karl Lehman, Southern State secretary and editor of Dixie Endeavorer, and Chas. D. Evans, of Kentucky, A. A. Hyde and W. Roy Breg, of Texas, and Wyatt A. Taylor, of South Carolina, ileld secretaries. Florida and South Carolina tied for the Efficiency Banner, and it was di vided between them. An earnest plea was made by offi cers of the training camp near the city for prayers, Testaments and re ligious reading matter for the sol diers.

Main St., .7.1 Corner / tH Mr. Karl Lehman was highly com mended for the fine work he did dur ing the past year. Many excellent addresses were made by workers and others, show ing the great progress of the work and the wonderful opportunities that lie before the Endeavorers. One of these speakers, Rev. Dr. Gilbert Glass, of Richmond, secretary of Young People's Work of the Southern Presbyterian Church, spoke on "Christian Endeavor and the Sun day-school." Dr. Glass gave a defini tion of an optimist, as the man who at night made lemonade from the lemons that had been handed him during the day. He spoke as aft optimist and began to "make lemon ade." Though the young people's movement had been handed many a "lemon" there was the sugar of the wonderful work and growth, especial ly In recent years, and to this was added the diluting water of the ten million young people of Che land yet unreached by either the Sunday school or the Christian Endeavor. Dr. Glass urged a closer co-operation be tween the Sunday-echoo^ and the Christian Endeavor forces, and gave suggestions as to how eaeh organiza tion can help the other. CHRISTION ENDEAVOR NEWS. Nearly three thousand miles, visit ing more than thirty towns and or ganizing twentyone new societies ? this Is the story of a five weeks' tour of the State of Mississippi Just com pleted by Christian Endeavor Field Secretary Taylor. During this five weeks there were twenty-six new so cieties organized, several having been organized by local workers. Most of the new societies had delegations at the State convention in June. There are a number of splendid rural societies In Mississippi. One of these, at Woodlawn, near Columbus, has a class of twenty-one studying Expert Endeavor. Quite a number of the Endeavor societies in Mississippi have in recent months changed from Westminster so cieties. Notably are the Presbyterian society of Natchez and that of Holly Springs. One of the new societies in Mis sissippi had three delegates at the State Convention. This organization conducts regular services at the coun ty jail. They have their special Chris tian Endeavor room for their meet ings. This society is at Natchez. A woman lawyer as president of an Endeavor Society is a Mississippi dis tinction. Miss Sara Buchanan, of Booneville, is president of the new Presbyterian society there. There is a flourishing Junior Society in the Christian church of West Point, Miss., four of whose members come nine miles every Sunday to attend the Endeavor meetings. The society of the U. S. A. Presby terian church at Meridian, Miss., is the oldest in the State, having been organized more than twenty-five years ago. They have recently lost their president, and several other members, young men who have enlisted for the colors. This society conducts regular services in the county jail. The Man at Home Is also of the groat army in the War of Humanity, but he should show a little extra patriotism by laying aside some thing every week to conserve the re sources of the country (for providing for the men at the front.
