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.

GRACE VS. 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.

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. We earnestly hope that* like Cuba* Ireland
will be made free by the action of America.
