Tne shipping clerk checked off the last box hoisted upon the ?toy aad then lit a cigarette "Gee, whizz." he ejaculate?), 'last year at this tone I wa* going 'over tbe top' with a bench o? ! iddies. There were nineteen of us. I was one of the four that came through ab?? aad the only one of the bunch that didn't get a scralch. Cosh, when I think about the war, it seems like a pipe dream'" It seems like a pipe dream to as, too. when we look around at tbe bustling, bustling, happy throngs of the present day and then try to recall the strain and the stress and the fear and trouble of ? yew ?go. It seems like a pipe dream to think that fat old Hindenburg and foxy old Ludendorff ever had enough power to worry us. (By the way, is that the way to spell their names? We've nearly forgotten how.) It seems like a ? ipr dream to think that we had to put forth the enormous force we did to Hck a bunch of weaklings who turned tail and whined for an armistice at the very first indication that thr war woold be carried into their own country. And when we think of the Kaiser and the clown quince and the six or seven sanctified son., however many there were of them we can't recall, it seems like a pipe dream to try and remember that they were once extremely important in this little oW world. Just think of it, the Kaiser was once important! When the Kaiser frowned the weather clouded op and it rained all erver the globe, according to thr impression his adherents tried to create. And when he smiled, if he ever did smile, the sun came out and the earth obediently danced and giggled and registered hal lowed joy. The Kaiser arid the clown quince important? Cosh, as the shipping clerk says, it sure seems like a pipe dream to remember that they once were! \fter the conference decides what men should do, the next step will be to find somebody who isn't opposed to doing what he should do. Our chief trouble is that most of us are determined to rock the boat until given our own way about things. Changing Forms. The movement to bring about certain modifications in the rituals *??' the Protestant I-.pisropal Church is significant as a tendency rather than because of the material importance of the changes proposed. Leaders in America of this most conservative of Protestant -hurehes contemplate no radical action in their ecclesiastical delibera tions, and to the layman their attitude ?seems anything but revolu tionary Rut when, at the triennial general convention in Detroit, it was decided that sessions of the house of bishops shall no longer be held in secrecy, precedent was boldly set aside. "'''pen revenants, openly arrived at," has been a plea of pro grcssrres within the church for twenty years. Other changes in church government and religious forms may be expected. This is a day of change. The spirit of the church, however, is untouched. What is im mortal endures. And ?? with the changes taking place in secular institutions. They teWeh only the outside; they dispense only with that which is outworn or outgrown. The old-fashinned consumer of John Barleycorn has a hunch that all thi?- disorder is occasioned by the effort to deprive man of his natural beverage. There are two kinds of workmen in America: Natural-born sitrroletons, and those who save a part of the high wages they are getting now. Safety First. Xo amount of safety devices will totally overcome human careless ness in the matter of accidents. The presence of safety devices often increase the disregard of caution. Very often we think that where safety devices are present there is no need of care. The number of accidents have been reduced in all their classifica tions, but still ?So per cent of the accidents are due to carelessness. Tt is very rare, for instance, that the owner of a new building or ^anyone not ased to it is ever injured in climbing about during its con struction. The reason is that they are unused to it and are careful. Usually it is the workman who is injured?the one used to climbing about a new building as a mattet of every-day occupation. He becomes so used to it that Ite fails in even ordinary precaution. Sailors say that it is never the novice who falls and is injured in ??limbing about boats and on and off docks. Usually it is the old sailor who is doing it every day of his life and by his one time failure to use care. Many old travelers will remember the old Union Station at Columbus, Ohio, where everyone walked over the tracks to and from trains. There were hundreds of trains each day and thousands of persons crossing the tracks, but not in tbe memory of the oldest employe of the station was any one of them ever killed or injured. The reason being that all recognized the danger. ?? were careful. When tbe present station at Columbus was constructed there were ?tail wajs leading down to the trains so that it was no longer neces sary for anyone to cross the tracks. The new station had not been opened thirty days until two per sons were killed?one a passenger and the other a railroad employe. They were carries* and in spite of all physical devices of caution. Tbere are fewer accidents in the hazardous occupations than ordinary ooes. Crwwwl? ? iim, the hazard tbere are relatively few casualties in the nanmaUSmU ?ad handling of high explosives. Everyone knows the hazard and uses doe caution. There are more accidents about the farming industry than any other. Farmers arc frequently working long distances from their barn? or tool houses, and in their operations they use a fence rail or a club rather than take the time to go after ?.crowbar or the proper hammer. Tbe prevention of accidents is just ?? per cent more a question of mental atfttade thaa physical de-vice? ?natal attitude ia our own ean-bon mA ?h seeing to it that others Me eantioo The Senate is reminded that one reason for Russia's downfall was the universal desire of the natives to stand around and talk. The laborer is worthy of his hire, provided he is one who can be trusted te do good work without constant and minute direction' ?? ahmt tamm ? # ' s NEW YQRK CITY ByQ. oTMcBmRE New Tork.

CHARLES STELAE, Staff WritCT on Rrlip-oi: ; Topics. The Bible pive* four definitions nf sin "Sin is the transeressio? of the law." I John 1:4? "All unrtch teousneas is sin. ' I John 5 17 To htm that kaoweth to ?lo eood and doeth It not. to him tt Is sta." ?Tames 4:17. "Whatsoe-yi r \m not faith is sin"?that if. all doubtful prac tices are sinful Romans 14.23. And these four principles cesser about all th*1 forms of sin that men practice. If you say that you have no sin. ' you deceive yourself. The Bible I says that this is a sum that "the ' truth is not In you.** * The man who come?? close to God, allowing the whit* lijcht of ?His Holiness to shine upon him. 'sees himself a sinner. It ?-as when the prophet Isaiah pot a vision of the holiness of God that he cried out: "Woe is me! for ?1 am undone; because I am a man of unclean Hps. and I dwell In the midst of people of unclean lips, for mine eyes have seen the Kin?; thr ? Lord of hosts. " Folly we may know without 'knowing; God. Vice we may know without know in? God. i Criihe w?? may know without knowinc God. But Sin we cannot know fully without knowing God. for sin is missine Ut? mark of God's perfect love, and it Is only as we sec our selves with God as a backfrround that we realize the sinfulness of sin It Is significant that the funda mental reason for sin ,i* covetous- ' ne??.
