IN THE RELIGIOUS WORLD. What the Church Folks Are Religious News Tlie Cure- for the Ills of the Times. The International Sunday School Les son for July 21 is, "The Ten Com mandments: Duties Toward Men. Ex. 20:12-17. The Golden Text is, "Tnou Shalt Love Thy Neighbor a i Thyself." Lev. 19: 18. BT WILLIAM T. ELLIS. A great deal of advertisement has been given of late to the freshly fash lonable principles of the Ten Com mendments, and, perforce, the Com mandments themselves are being morl generally observed. Only a hare-brained enthusiast, however, would think for a moment that the great task of liftir.J society up to Sinai's level has alreadj been accomplished. The most serioul business in the world today a Job alongside of which the building of a Panama canal is a mere trifling episode is the creation of a social condition among men wherein these eternal prin ciples of right and equality shall be honored and obeyed as a normal condi tion of life. Here is work worthy of the best: How can the Decalogue be o pressed upon the conscience of men and women, both low and high, that the black record of each day's news may be cleansed? The other day a number of men re celved a request to loin "The Interna tional Committee for the Promotion of Moral Training Inquiry." Now it is not by any such formidably named socie ties as this that the vast and ursent work of raising the standard of pub lie morals is to be accomplished. Far more potent is an already establishment agency, existing wherever the Christian church has gone in the whole world namely, the Sunday school. If the myriads of Sunday school teachers on this western continent were lightly to take hold of the present lesson on the six words of the Decalogue which deal with man's duty to man, as a great opportunity, an immeasurable influence would be v. telded for human morality, Ethics and Patriotism. Since the demand for fighting men is happily rather low Just now, there is no more definite. Immediate 2nd fruit ful woik for patriotism to be done by the average Christian citizen than is afforded to the Sunday schoi! teacher by this lesron. Let him speak clearly ana witn conviction, out of his own ob servation and common sense, rather than repeat the platitudes of commen taries', and his hearers will be set to thinking upon the truth that morality is the foundation of the state, and that no better service can be done for oue's country than to create a spirit of obedi ence to the Ten Commandments. Sometimes a wrench is necessary to bring the divine law out of the Book that is commonly reserved for Sabbath reading into the clear sunlight of tne commonplace everyday life. Yet the Decalogue's place is out where men sweat and strive and suffer. We have read into the Old Testament so many spiritual meanings that we are in daii- ger of forgetting that the law which was given on a rocky mountain deals only with the life of a real people in a real world. "New" and "advanced" thought "and isms are rampant today, some of them being more concerned with the color of the efflorescence of a person's soul than with his conduct as a citizen and neigh bor: more zealous that he should have aesthetic emotions than that he should pay his grocer's bill. Contrariwise, the old-fashioned Decalogue faces the hard facts of every-day worldly conditions and of human nature. The last six Com mandments, which are at the moment before us, take for granted that people must live together; that the hermit life is not normal; and that, since men and women have got to live in the society of one another, they must squarely con front and deal with the problems that arise cut of these relationships. In a word these Commandments are For Preserving Purifying and Beautifying the Skin, Scalp, Hair, and Hands, for Sunburn, Heat Rash, Chafings, and for all the purposes of the Toilet. I! a. R.

Thev as sume that everybody should live his own life at the best and give his neighbor a chance to qo tne same. The law po tulates personality; it never intended that one should efface his identity in the shapeless, colorless, goodygoodiness which is sometimes mistaken for crime. Why the Korean Killed tlio Japanese. All Oriental peoples have the principle of the fifth Commandment written so deeply in their traditions and character that veneration for father and mother is carried to the extent of ancestor wor ship. "The most sacred obligation of an Oriental son," said an aged and eminent missionary in China upon hearing the following incident, is to avenge the death of a father." While I was in Korea a Korean had been ordered out of his ancestral home by a Japanese cnolle. who coveted it. When he re sisted he was hung to the eaves of his own house by the Japanese. The Korean's son returned home and, with some friends, sought out the murderer. The latter fled, swimming across a river; the son followed, a knife in his teeth. When he had overtaken the fugitive he- slew him. and cutting out his heart and liver, formally offered these as a sacri fice to his father's spirit. In the eyes of his fellow countrymen that son was looked upon as a hero. The story is a bloody, gruesome one but it illustrates how deeply the obliga tions of sonship are felt by primitive people. In this respect tne east nas much to teach the west. We have lapsed so far from the attitude which regards parenthood as divine that almost every body can repeat shameful stories of the neglect and even abuse of parents by children. While it appears customary in many quarters nowadays for parents to subordinate themselves to ineir ennaren, and for children to be flippant, disre spectful and selfish toward their parents, the fifth commandment still remains in force a wise, beneficial and binding social law. Twentieth Century Crimea. Read the annual total of lives' lost on the railways of the country, mostly because of the greed of the com panies. Consider the more sanguinary roll of employes maimed and killed by machinery. Look at the army of child laborers whose lives are blighted, if not destroyed, by the day's insensate love of sold. Behold the processron of coffins filled every day by bad sani tary conditions. impure food, mis labeled drugs then ask yourself how well this progressive and enlightened generation is keeping the sixth com mandment, "Thou shalt not kill." The deaths in a ruder state of society, where everybody travels armed and human life is reckoned cheap, are few and merciful as compared with this to tal. Civilization takes a man's safety'out of his individual keeping and puts it n the care of society. If society is to prove itself fit for this nign respon sibility it will need considerable ton ing up. We have not the respect for hwman ,llfe that we delude ourselves into thinking we have: a bloody mur der shocks our fine sensibilities, but we view almost unmoved, and fre quently aid and abet, social institu tions which are worse. Tho Shame of Society. Instead of anemic sermons on the refinements of spirituality, these times need fire-filled sermons on the seventh commandment. While this is not as adulterous a generation as the' every day newspaper scandals might lead a superficial observer to believe, there Is nevertheless a laxnesa of regard for the sacredness of the marriage rela- tion that is ominous. Unless there be awakened a sturdy and militant senti ment for the purity of society In this respect, dark days are ahead of us. And who will lead In this awakening if not the Christian teachers who hold the ten commandments as divine? The Moslem who is Jealous of his wife cuts off her nose; unfortunately his wife has greater reason, but not the power, to cut off her husband's nose. Lacking the inner restraints of a law written on the hearts, many Ori entals pay tribute to the great truth which underlies the seventh com mandment by keeping their women se cluded "behind the curtain." But In vain: the moral corruption of the east is the prime factor in Its political, commercial and social backwardness. Not alone in "high society" Is the seventh commandment violated. With an indifference that is culpable we permit the very springs of society to be poisoned by the penny peep-shows that may be found in almost every city, by the suggestive character of much or most that appears on the stage of the theater; by widely dis seminated literature of an unhealthful character; by the circulation of Im proper pictures; and by a permitted obscenity of speech. All these com mon evils are so many battering rams, steadily hammering away at the rounaatlons of the home. Graft and Theft. On the other side of the world they do not understand our popular word "graft;" perhaps it is a little difficult to explain why we should create a euphemism for any of the forms of stealing. The grafter is a thief, and a violator of the eight Commandment. Whosoever, be he clerk or director. Is a silent partner in any crime of steal ing, whether that stealing be one of tho modern burglaries on a large scale called 'high finance," or plain, every day bank robbery or fraudulent deal ings with the state. Is himself no bet ter than a thief. . Let us call spades spades. In all.the manifold and nauseous exposures of crooked dealings with the publio there has been too little odium attached to the men cognizant of these crimes, al though themselves not principals or direct beneficiaries. The brand of knavery should b j attached to any man who suffers fraud to continue un rebukod. Let us have manhood enough to label all thieves and crim inals, apd to treat them as such until they have exhibited penitence and make restitution. A vigorous public mind in these matters Is one of the grave needs of the day. Woe bet Ida us if decent men and women so little respect themselves, and their obliga tions to thi whole social structure, that they have not the manhood and womanhood to put the taboo neon of fenders against the law. . Over tlio'Back Fence. Listen to the conversation th.it Is being carried on over back fences; lo. It is chiefly gossip concerning neigh bors. Now harken to the chatter at elaborate afternoon teas, and, behold, it is the same thing! Thus does the back fence run even Into the draw ing room. The truth Is that, what- j ever their social station little people l and Idle people everywhere are bitten by the microbe of gossip, which Is us ually slander. This la the state of tor ment to which countless small com munities (and such exist in the largest cities) are condemned by their- own intellectual and spiritual limitations. This, too, marks the real line of di vision between "good society" and bad; the former keeps the ninth command ment; the latter does not. True re finement, which is of the spirit before it is of the manners, does not bear false witness against a neighbor, be cause it loves the true word, the gentle word, the charitable word. While this great law includes all slander and malicious tale bearing, it also goes further, for its primary significance is with respect more than breaking the law of the land; he Is impudently put ting his tongue through the ninth word of the decalogue. For you I gave the prophets, For you the Psalmist's lay: For you the law's stone tables; And holy book and day. Who counts his brother's welfare As sacred as his own. And loves, forgives, and pities. He serveth me alone. Whittler. A Contentment Motto. If any one doubts the sheer prac ticability of the moral - law. and its adaptability to present day society, he has only to . con carefully the tenth commandment, in order to be con vinced; for when he lifts his eyes from the sacred page he beholds his neigh bors, and mayhap himself also, covet ing the very things forbidden in the commandment. In this sin is seen the secret of the world's lost pace. Covet-, ousness is a canker at society's heart. Sorely does the day need to heed David Swing's wise words upon contentment: "Let us learn to be content with what we have. Let us sret rid of our false estimates; set up all the "higher meats a quiet home, vines of our own planting, a few books full of the inspiration of geniusr a few friends worthy of being loved and able to love In turn, a hundred Innocent pleasures that bring no pain or sorrow, a devo tion to the right that will never swerve; a simple religion empty of all bigotry, full of trust and hope and love; and to such a philosophy this world wju give up all the Joy it has. NEWS AND NOTES. The Christian churches In heathen lands are conspicuously ahead of tdc churches in Christian lands in the n;at tT of union. The recent Shanghai mU o.iary centennial had as its most out standing characteristic the det.ernii.ia tion to consolidate, so far as possible the 50 different missionary agencies in China. The eight Presbyterian bodies agreed to form one church, the Kpisco pallans, Baptists and Methodist like wise, so that these, in turn, will work together in a co-operation that will amount to practical union. Great stress was laid upon the importance of magnifying the place and authority of the native church; missionaries In China are resolved to escape the frii- tion which has existed between th& foreigners and the natives In the Japa nese church. The largest Mohammedan colony in the western world is at Worcester Mass. It is composed of Turks and Koords who are employed in the fac tories. There are as many Lutherans on the alobe as all the other Protestant de nominations put together, in point, oi membership . the - Lutheran .- church stands third in the United States, hav ing 1,959,000 communicant members, this being a gain of 90.425, or 4.36 per cent over last year; 13.S2U congregations ana 7.876 pastors. Ten per cent of the in crease in church membership of the United States for last year was in the Lutheran church. Every week for three months the Young Men's Christian Association at Scranton, Pa., has arranged to give the employes of the big shops a practical health talk at noon, leading pnysicians have told men how to live a healthy Ufe. That every member of the Presbyter- Ian church gives $5 a year, or ten cents week, to the cause of foreign mis sions was one of the recommendations made by the Omaha Laymen s Mission ary convention that is still echoing throughout the churches. . Ecuador has been added to the small list of South American countries per mitting absolute freedom of worship. The Introduction into churches of tel ephones for shut-ins, and of a device for enabling the deaf to hear, has be come so commcu that it no longer ex cites remark. Some youthful enemies of Rev. R.

Curiously enough, five years ago. Rev, Dr. Joseph Parker, Mr. Campbell's pre decessor, had prophesied: '.'Should It ever come to pass that the great truths of Christ's death and resurrection be denied by any future occupier of this pulpit: should the fact of his gracious Godhead and Divinity do questioned may the word 'Ichabod be written over the doors of the City Temple."

Personality, beloved. Is a great thing in the compelling forces. It is a thing that arrests the attention of God. And the one thing in this, world God Al mighty pays sincere and glorious at tention to is a single human soul. I do not hestitate to believe, neither do hesitate to assert, that when a child comes to God he gets more of God's smile and more of God's attention than all the might of the physical universe that fills the spaces Infinite. Why? Why, because, God being personality, personality has a touch of himself. Per. sonality is the supreme potency of the universe. Was there a will first? Aye. Was there love first? Aye. And a thought first? "Aye. What is that? That is" personality. God has all the faculties that unite to make a begin ning of things. When you have per sonality, you can originate a man When you have personality, you can orielnate life. When you have per sonality, you can frame theologies, as tronomies and geologies and geome tfies. All of that you can do with per sonality. Without personality you can do nothing. And God is personality, who stands at the threshold of the unl verse. Before the ordinary- machinery of the universe God existed, God Al mighty's personality was here. Rev. William A.

Rig-lit of Way Is Secured for Quinton Heights Sewer, Right of way across the fair grounds has been recured from the county com missioners for a portion of the sewer which is to drain Quinton Heights. The city engineer plans to connect the Quinton-Heights new sewer to the Fifth ward-sewer by a main construct ed across the fair grounds, east and west, in the vicinity of Eighteenth street. . Property owners residing in the dis trict which the new sewer will serve are clamoring for the' active construc tion work to commence. It is not pro bable, however, that the levels for the proposed improvement can be run for tome time due to the large amount of work that the city engineer's office has on its hand3 at this time. The demand is made that work should commence this fall though the city Is reluctant to begin so early. There is no oppor tunity of getting the proposed impiove ment on the tax rolls this year and if It is placed on next year the city does not begin to get its money In the shape of taxes from the benefit district until In December. If the construction com mences in the summer it simply means that the city would have to carry, on the work for several months until the taxes are available this is only possi ble in one way, to turn over the bonds to the contractor la lieu of cah pay ment. - . . .
