URGES CHILDRENJN CHURCH
Rev. Dr. Woolston Advises Minis
ters te Encourage Attendance
"Hring the child te church early In
life," said the Rev. Dr. C. H. Weel--ton,
of the Fust Huptlst Church, In
addressing a meeting of Presbyterian
ministers nt Witherspoon Hall this
morning
"If they nre restless, cress their
feet nnd draw in the hymnals, it ic
enl bemuhe Ged is working in them,"
he said. "At any rate, I'd rnther have
in 111 congregation a restless child
than i sleeping saint."
Hr oel-ton explained the, necessity
of bringing the church service down te
the understanding of the child, of uisng
visual Illustrations Instead of enl.v oral
ones, lie wns. he said, sorry that the
language of the pulpit was ever insti
tuted, for it was neither the language
of children or the common folk.

EARL OF HALSBURY
Famous British Lawyer and
Lord Chancellor Was Leader
of Tery "Die-Hards"
WAS 98 YEARS OLD
By the Associated Tress
Londen, Dec. 12. The Karl of Halr
bury. former Lord High Chancellor of
England, died here yesterday.
Lord Halsbury, who celebrated his
ninety-eighth birthday last September,
was the nc.ster of Ilrltlfh politics. Ills
longevity justified physically the title
of "Lord Die-Hard, " which he wen
politically through the stubbornness and
Indignation with which he led the fight
in England for hereditary prlvlbge,
particularly against the Vete Bill,
whereby the Heuse of Commens suc
ceeded In curbing largely the power of
the Heuse of Lords. While his Identifi
cation with it losing cause !n the last
years of h's public life did much te
ebfcure his record of achievement, he
was really one of the greatest English
legal authorities of the lat century. Aw
Lord Chancellor of England he served
in four Conservative Cabinets, occupy
ing the famous "woolsack" for seven
teen ears In all. from ISSe le 1802 and
from 1S03 te 100S.

Twe pnrs age, when he celebrated
fne seventieth anniversary of Ins call
te the bar. the present Lord Chancellor,
Lord Birkenhead, in a tribute te him
en behalf of the British bench and bar,
said :
"It is amazing te centempjate the
long historical perspective. Yeu were
born during the lord chancellership of
Lord Eldou. Yeu were called te the
bar in the chancellership of Cotten
ham. Yeu took silk when V'"stbury
was Chancellor; your Immediate prede
cesser en the woolsack was Melbourne,
"Success in the profession of the law
and thnt vitality which nreduces length
of days must have some intimate con-
ncetieti if vv0 may judge by the span of i
I life allotted te the Chancellors of the!
eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Yet
