"Seems Like a Pipe Dream."
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

THE NATURE OF SIN
BY TUB REV. 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??.
There are seven persons in the
T-t-hl- ?ho usivi tbe w-rds : "T fca^m
. niiM. "
! ? ?- very ras? t h* ? ware fui * ?*
of cov-Mousness lt ts d'sr*ea*1
for others, selfishness that is re
."-pon: -hi*?, for most men's ems.
St the opposite extreme fr"TB st?
is love, and here's what we're toltf
about it in the T*,ihl<
