In part the speaker spoke as follows: BY JOHN RANDALL DUNN, C. S. Member of the Board of Lectureship of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ. Scientist, in Boston, Mass. Entitled Christian Science: The Supreme - Discovery of the Age Christian Science is not a modern philosophy, not the "product of a fer tile human brain.'' It is the revela tion of the spiritual facts of being, the revelation of the truth about God and man taught by Jesus and the pro phets, and it is all to be found in the Bible. The Path Marked by Jesus Have you ever seen in the moun tains a "blazed" trail? A large piece of bark is cleft from a tree, and this operation is repeated on other trees at frequent intervals throughout the length of the trail. No matter how the trees may grow, the "blaze" re mains, and so the trail is marked out for generations to come. When the world seemed immersed in the ma terialism of Jewish theology and Roman paganism, there appeared one whose mission was to point the way to spirituality, to deliverance and heal ing, and he "blazed" a trail to the Father's house so plain, so simple, that a child could follow it.

A aft of a bill giving the president broad pow ers to fix prices of foods and other pro ducts essential to the conduct of the war or for domestic consumption, was laid before the raembers of the house committee today by President Wilson with the request that it be pressed for passage. Representative Lever, South Caroli na, chairman of the committee, and four fellow members, were called to the White House and told by the president that he believed the situation necessi tated immediate legislation to provide these powers. Members of the committee declined to disclose details of the bill. It is understood that, the measure would give the president through an agency that he may designate blanket seemed content to follow the devious paths of creeds until in our time a woman-pilgrim came upon it and gave to her discovery the name Christian Science, or the Science of Christianity, and she rested not tttil she had written a book showing you and me how to find it. This guide-book is called "Science and Health with Key to the bcirptures," and is the text-book which Christian Scientists use in con nection with their manual of life, the Bible. Christianity Is Exact Science Mrs. Eddy discovered that the re ligion taught by Jesus is as exact a science as is the science of numbers; that a Christian should be enabled to overcome sickness,, fear, discourage ment, poverty, or any other discord, with the same readiness and certainty of correct result that he takes to his problem in mathematics, - The Mission of the Saviour A story is told of a shipwrecked sailor who was cast upon a far-off isle inhabited by semi-savage tribes. One day he came upon a group of wrangling natives, and, inquiring the cause of the commotion, learned that there was a certain supply of cocoa-" nuts brought to the island to be equal ly distributed among these men, and no one could decide as to the number that each should have. The sailor counted the cocoanuts. He found one hundred.- He counted the men. There were twenty-five of them. Without hesitation he said, "Each will have four as his share." Imagine his sur prise when the natives straightway flung themselves at his feet, called him a god, and proceeded to worship him I Try as he might, he could not persuade the simple folk that his instantaneous calculation was the result of an un derstanding of the principle of mathe matics and was in no sense miraculous. To the bewildered and heartsick children of men came a Saviour. Un derstanding the great Principle of being, he solved their problems, bring ing instantaneous answers in health and reformation and regeneration. He plainly said that of himself he did not the works, and that if they would hut understand his) mission and his Principle, they too could solve the problems as did he. But they called him a wonder-worker, worshiped his personality, and crucified him! And the human mind has continued its misapprehension down through the centuries, with the result that we still authority to fix prices, without speci fying the products. II I tl I 1 iMM 'H I I t II I -J l I f I IP VjvJ Cib a IK " He Comes Up Smiling' Easiest thing in the world to radiate good cheer, and it helps one ahead. ' Gut out the harmful habits. Treat the nerves right and get proper sleep. If you're a coffee drinker the first step is to use toSTANT POSTUM , instead of coffee. "There's a Reason" see thousands professing Christianity and worshiping the personality of Jesus, but following him in practical demonstration of divine power not at all! " The Sign of a Christian Do you know that Jesus once point ed out a very simple method of dis covering a true Christian? The direc tions are to be found in the sixteenth chapter of Mark, and follow imme diately the well-known command to "preach the gospel to every creature." His words are: "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up ser pents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." Christians, are we measuring up to this standard? Suppose we are travel ing in a distant land, and a would-be convert says to us, "Are you a Chris tian?" And upon receiving an af firmative reply, suppose he next says: 'Oh, how glad I am that you came' I see by your Bible that signs are to follow the true believers. Now I am possessed by a veritable devil. I am a victim of the opium habit. Do, I beg of you, through your beautiful re ligion, cast this devil out!" What would we say? Would we recommend a well-known sanitarium famed for its treatment of the drug habit, or what would we do? Suppose he then says: 'My old mother is very ill. I see by your book that a Christian, under standing the great power taught by- Jesus, can cause her to recover. Come, I pray you, and heal her!" What would we now say? Would we suggest a change of doctors, or recommend a new diet or climate or would we undertake to put our faith to the test? And if by chance we say to this hun gering thought: "Ah, my dear sir, that was not meant for our time! The days of healing are past," do not be surprised if he closes the Bible and hands it back with this statement: Very well! I have a religion to die by that is older than yours!" . Tho Christian Scientist a Patriot Thus the man who has felt the heal ing, liberating touch of Truth as taught in Christian Science is sure to feel an ever-increasing sense of grati tude for and loyalty to this great Na tion. For because of the freedom guaranteed by its Constitution, the birth and development of this mighty cause were made possible. In fact, the very coming of Christian Science. which proclaims man's birthright of ireeuom and dominion, was fore shadowed in that great protest against tyranny, the Declaration of Indepen dence, when it was written, "We hold tnese truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that thev are endowed by their creator with cer tain inalienable rights; that among tnese are lire, liberty ana the pursuit oi nappiness. " And it seems especially fittinr that I should read tonight words penned by our revered Leader nearly twenty years ago, when the United States was at war with Spain words which have a peculiar prophetic significance for tne troublous times in which we live: In reply to your question, 'Should difficulties between the United States and Spain be settled peacefully by statesmanship ana aipiomacy, in a way honorable and satisfactory to both nations?' I will say I can see no other way of settling difficulties between in dividuals and nations than by means of their wholesome tribunals, equitable laws, anl; sounds iwell-kapt treaties, . . But if our nation's rights or honor were seized, every citizen would De a pinner ana womairo woi(ld (be armea wnn power girt for the hour "To coincide with God's government is the proper incentive to the action of all nations. If His purpose for peace is to be subserved by the bat tle's plan or toy the intervention of the United States, so that the Cubans may learn -to make war no more, this means and end will be accomplished.' Hear then the benediction with which she concludes this great state ment of truth which is for the "heal ing of the nations' : "The government of divine Love i: supreme. Love rules the universe, and its edict has gone forth: 'Thou shalt have no other god!s before mo," and 'Love thy neighbor as thyself.' Let us have the molecule of faith that re moves mountains, faith armed with the understanding of Love, as in divine Science, . where right relgneth. The revered President and Congress of ou favored land are in God's hands, (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, pp. 277-278).' So the whole message of Christian Science, its message to this sad world to you and to me, may be summed up In these two verses from our hymnal TEBERS WILL GET CHANGE TO I DRAFT IRK ; God mad all His creatures free; Life itself is liberty; God ordained no other bands Than united hearts and hands. So shall all our slavery cease. All God's children dwell in peace, And the new-born earth record Love, and Love alone, is Lord. (Christian Science Hymnal, p. 159). o TO CARE FOR FOLKS Lawyers and physicians have heard and heeded the call of the United States government, say instructions re ceived by the local draft board, and now, in undertaking the gigantic task of classifying registrants in strict ac cord with the intent of the selective draft law, Uncle Sam is calling upon chool teachers to rally in support of the cause. t Maricopa local board is not vet ready to avail itself of the services of the in- ! tructors. but within a few weeks thev ill Ife needed, and when this time comes it is expected that the response ill be equally as commendable as on previous occasions. Instructions from the provost mar shal general's office declare it to be of paramount importance "to the selec tive features of the draft and to the ef- i fective employment of the man-power of the army," that everv man be- so I placed in it as to give the most ad- ' antage from his particular qualifica tions. 'The manifold activities,',' stales the communication, "that compose the : mc iern armv call for a most extensive variety of occupational experience and skill, therefore a large proportion of the men in khaki will be more or less occupied with activities, which repre sents the military application of the ery skill already acquired by them in civil life. These varieties of military service are as vital as any others to the success of military operations on a large scale. The problem is, therefore, to find the men who can do these nec essary things." The communication points out that hitherto, under the first draft., men nere first sent to the training camps and their separate attainments learned by individual investigation after they arrived. Arrangements have now been made whereby special experts in the adjutant general's office and personnel onicers in the several divisions have so devoted themselves to this task that I every man in the national armv is now assured that his personal experience and abilities will be utilized by the gov ernment and the man who enters under the selective system will have the same chance of obtaining a position con genial to his experience, as though he had enlisted in some branch of the ser vice selected by himself. "The method heretofore followed." states one set of instructions, "that of waiting until the man's arrival at camp. no longer sutnees. The demands, from the several branches of the service, for skilled men in the varied occupations already exceed the supply as such men available from the first draft. These demands must be supplied as soon as feasible. Instead of waiting until the new contingent arrives at camp, its composition must be known before it starts. The occupational distribution of all men liable to call throughout the country must be known. The govern ment must be able to determine be forehand how many men of the several branches of industry are available for corresponding kinds of work in the army. If specie.l urgent need arises, it must De possible to make a special call for the needed kind of men and to know how many there are and where they can be found." In order that this situation can be met, the local board will of necessity have to call upon outside help In clas sifying the registered men. An Index card system has been prepared, and tne volunteer assistants will have the duty of locating the industrial capa bilities of the registrant as set forth in the questionnaire and transcribing them to the index cards. It is this work which the president expects per formed by the school teachers, and others who are capable of, and willing iu penorm tne worK. Some volunteers have already signi fied their willingness to render a pat riotic service and to assist the board in the task. One case of exceptional merit to which the local board calls attention is that of W. M. Cross, who for the past month has voluntarily and with out pay, assisted the local board. So efficient has been the work of Mr. Cross that he has been placed in charge of the clerks who are expected to do nate their service in transcribing the information, relative to the Industrial capabilities of the registrant, to the uiuex caras.

Frank Thompson, chairman of the Minne sota boxing commission, .announced today that the commission would in vestigate reports that Fred Fulton fought with a broken bone in his hand in the match with Billy Mlske here last Friday night. Mr. Thomp son said that if the commission is satisfied that Fulton went into the ring knowing the bone was fracturca, he would recommend that the boxer be barred from Minnesota bouts. The statement was made by Dr. Edward J. Clark, Minneapolis, that cocaine he gave Fulton to ease the pain in his hand rendered him unable to make the best showing against Miske. BUILD AT YMUIDEN DUTCH STEEL MILL The plans for a smelting furnace and a steel and rolling mill at Ymui den, at the entrance of the North Sea Canal, contemplate the construc tion of work's provided with all the latest appliances, on a waterway navigable for large ships, as the ore to be used would be imported from foreign countries, according to a report from Frank W. Mahin. Ameri can consul at Amsterdam. The pro duets of the works are intended pri marily for shipbuilding. In recent years the Dutch shipyards have used annually not less than 150,000 tons of manufactured iron, with a con stantly growing demand. Large quantities also are required in bridge building, boiler works and various other industries. With this plant situated on a ship waterway, as at Yamuidcn. conven ient for both import and export. ac tivities, its products, Mr. Mahin says, could also be distributed cheaply and satisfactorily through the country by means of the numerous canals con necting with the North Sea Canal. The preliminary plans do not indi . cate. works capable-of supplying im- mediately the full - requirements of the country, but probably about two thirds of the shipyards' demands will bo met, with a remainder available for other industries. Besides the principal output, attention will be given to by-products, usable as raw material by various Dutch industries, o NOTICE OF STOCKHOLDERS' MEETING OF Rl'RAL SETTLE MENT ASSOCIATION Notice is hereby given thjit the an nual meeting of the stockholders of the Rural Settlement Association, a cor poration organized under the laws of the state of Arizona, will be held at Room 217.
