IF YOU WANT TO TALK RELIGION, GO TO CHURCH; BUT IF YOU WANT JOB PRINTING, ADVERTIS ING, OR TO READ A NEWSY, RACE PAPER, THEN CALL UP THE DEN TO ESTABLISH HOME FOR ORPHANS AND WORKERB. Bishop Oscar Elnarsen, who has been engaged in missionary work throughout the United States, arrived in Denver this week to establish a home for orphans and Christian work ers, which, according to the present plan, will become the center of a movement. He has purchased the property at 2070 South Milwaukee street, formerly occupied by the Uni versity Park postofflce, and will equip the place for the work as soon as he has sufficient funds. A workshop for the benefit of or phans and invalids is to be established under the auspices of the Life-Savior Apostolic Benevolent church, of which Bishop Oscar Binarsen is the founder. A piece of property has been pur chased in University Park at 2070 South Milwaukee street for this pur pose. Bishop Einarsen is endeavoring to interest the public in his cause, which has been pronounced worthy by the American Bank & Trust Company and others who have investigated it. He appeals for donations of money or useful articles. The founder of the movement, who was incapacitated for manual labor by an injury to the spine sustained early in life, has placed all of his savings in the fund for the pur chase of the land and building. He states that all Life-Savior labor ers will receive, so far as possible, necessities of life, but no money sal ary. Organized. 1896. Affiliated with Na tional Council of Women 1900.

FAILURES Often Times It Is the Great Re- ! vealer of God’s Mercy, Love ] and Power to Deliver. The disciples learned through their ( tails, but they never learned anything which would not have been better t learned through their faith. It is 1 enough to say that God will teach us t through our stumblings when that la „ the only text-book left to teach us out of. We need not go Into any raptures about failure. When he had denied his Lord and then suddenly saw him , In all his truth and beauty, Peter knew I well enough that he might have seen his Lord more clearly without a fall. But be that as it may, the fall was there, and the wonder of it was that his master was still willing to reveal himself through what was left. Al most any master could take the de- * fects and mistakes of his disciples and point out what they had lost, but who else would take the meanest and most contemptible passages in one’s exist ence and make even them a lens through which they could see the di vine if they would? There are more normal ways of rev elation, points out the Sunday School Times, but when this is the only way we have left to God, then he takes ' our falls and reveals himself through them. Without ever once saying that the fall was upward, or that the sin was goodness in the making, the Bible takes what men give and shows how wonderfully God will commence the miracle of repair. It may be that we do not learn as we might because we are too proud to learn through the only means we have left for God to employ in teach ing us. A great fall may still be a great re vealer. When we have had one we may look upward because there Is nowhere else to look. At last we look unto the hills .whence cometh our help. One of the marks of a Christian I believer is that to him a fall is some thing different from what it is to an other man. To the non-Christian a fall may seem nothing but a finish. I To the Christian it must in some way seem more terrible than to anybody else. But though he Is cast down, he Is not destroyed. Every Christian is brought very low at times. To anyone else It would be the end: but he is taught to expect something more. Joseph Parker, who so constantly exhibited the exuberance of the Gospel, said: “I have known aa nearly as any man what it was to be forsaken, I have reached out and found no help, that is, no lateral help. 1 The only direction from which help could come to me was vertical.” TBese exhaustions ought never to have been, but they are here, and they may be made the ground of revela tions. When we cannot pray to God , out of our nearness to him, then we . can pray out of our distance. George . 1 MacDonald said that sometimes he felt ! he had no other claim upon God ex ] cept that he was so miserable; and he 1 I made that claim. One man lets his weakness overwhelm him. His relig ion ends there. But another takes his • stand upon his weakness, it is all he lias, and he uses that as an approach to God; and the willingness to do that ‘ has been a great revealer to men. ; Pride may ruin us. It may keep us waiting until we have some better , bads on which to speak to God —and I we never find that basis. Who would • nor wish t.iat he might look into God’s face from a life that was all clear? ‘ But we cannot. The Pharisee tried it In the temple and failed. The publican [ know that if he was to see God at all , he must see him from the standpoint of sin and shame; throwing away his pride, waiting for nothing, saying “God i be merciful to me a sinner.” he saw God. There is not a sinner in the world who may not add to the glories i of revelation. "God fulfills himself in many ways.” We could wish that the truth might | come to fis steadily, through eyes that are always bright and glad. But the truth comes to many' of us through 1 tears. It may come that way. Let us ' not despise our disappointments, i So far our sins and falls may have I only revealed to us ourselves. They may have only Intensified our self • knowledge. This Is something; but if it is all. it may end in death. But when one realizes that just this ex perience is what Christ has been look ing for, and that, made over to him, ho may make it a means of revelation, then our greatest days may be draw ing nigh. You are having some terrible dis appointment or sorrow or failure. Do not let it be that and nothing more. Do not be proud about it. Do not say you will not see God unless he comes In the grand way. If this is all you have byway of present experience, then it will, suit God better than any thing else you can offer. Christ al ways took men just where they were, lie never asked that the situation should be altered. He said nothing about “bard cases.” There was no depth to which one had fallen which might not become a ground from which to rise again. Just there the soul may find, if it is humble enough, the help which Just matches his need. When Thorean fell and sprained his ankle tn the .woods, as he lay on the ground looking about he saw for the first time In many months the herb arnica mollis, good for sprains, and felt It was a parable of much else in the spiritual world. So when our first shame and discouragements are over, we are to ask, “What may this yet mean to me?” It may be the beginning of greater revelation ttaa vt have yet received. i To Members of Columbine Court.

PETITION TO THE President and Congress \ FOR THE Independence of Ireland Wc, as American citizens, respectfully state to tha Government | of the United States that Ireland is s distinct nation* deprived a# her liberty by force and held in subjection by England by military power alone. As America has entered the war for tha preservation of democracy and the freedom of small nationalities, this Govern j ment is in honor bound to apply this principle impartially in all eases of peoples held in subjection, whether they bo under the Jsrbdb * tion of Germany* like Belgium* or of England* like Ireland, As Aanr> | lea cannot be a party to any schema of world-peace which with holds from any nation tha God-given right of freedom* the only Anal ' settlement must be the complete independence of Ireland. America has the right* by her entry into the war* to demand M from England, not in tha Peace Conference at tha close of the war* but now. We therefore respectfully urge upon the Preeident and the Con gress the necessity and good policy of giving a great example he Aw world by insisting that England shall grant Ireland oomplots ea-* tional independence.
