Dr. Harper, president of Chicago University, has stirred up considera ble discussion by an editorial in the Biblical World of which he is editor. "Has the church any permanent mission in modern civilization?" is asked. According to the editorial this question is inspired by two ex isting conditions. The first of these points is that "the statistics ol or gacized Christianity show that the growth of many denominations in certain portions of the country has practically ceased." The second is that "whatever may be the number of young men passing into the ranks of the ministry, either without theo logical training or ill prepared, it is no longer a matter of doubt that the number of students for the ministry in colleges and theological seminaries is diminishing, not merely in the United States, but in England, Soot- land and Germany," Wrong methods in the work of or ganized Christianity are blamed for the stationary or even retrograde movement, and yet the decrease is "probably inevitable as a result of the extraordinary development in the thought and commerce of the last fifty years." In view of this fact it is t bought that the mission of the c hurch itself needs to be clothed anew and reenforced. "The time when a church cau stand coordinately for charity, culture, so cial reform and religion is past," de clares the writer. "The church should recognize its exclusive function, and, while not abandoning its efforts to benefit men and women, it should hold fast to its fundamental religious mission. The church must stand for something other than creed reduc tion; it must stand for definite -convictions as to sin and God and salva tion through faith. This is not the time for conscience-ruining theo logical casuistry. The church ought to speak the message of the Bible in 'nww warw i iw stand. Why should a church service present not one person, we Ten tare to sar.left that auditorium without feel ing that he or she had been profited and instructed bv the sermon. And ; yet there was not a word in it telling I them where they should go what j they should read, how they should ! dress or what they must believe. J There are sermons and sermons This was one. They need not all be of the same pattern to draw, and to accomplish good. But to be useful they must be something more than mere scolding and theological plati tudes. The world is just as hungry today for good sermons as it was on the day the sermon on the mount was . delivered. AMUSEMENTS.

Thirty eight years ago today Abra ham Lincoln delivered the following speech on the battle-field of Gettys burg: Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this con tinent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the propo sition that all men are created equal Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedi cated, can long endure. We are met on a great : battle-field of that war. We are met to dedicate a portion of it as the final resting place of those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense we can not dedicate, we can not concecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. it is lor us, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work that they have thus far so no bly carried on. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us that from these honored dead we take increased de votion to the cause for which they gave tne last full measure of devo tion that we here highly resolve that the dead shall not have died in vain that the nation shall, under God have a new birth of freedom, and that the government of the peo ple, by the people, and for the peo ple, shall not perish from the earth. i Ciraiit in I liviels.

HYDRO CARBON 1 CAS HEATER There are four sones in the new comic onere "Dolly V'arden" which Hoosiers are making themselves felt in the large cities of the west. Chicago and St. Louis both have In diana societies. The St. Louis society will give a banquet next Thursday evening which is expected to be a very interesting function. Governor be a combination of music and lyceum?" is asked. "Churchgoers are not given enough opportunity to express religious life in worship. This element of worship should be magnified. Theological and doctrinal discussions tire the congregation, who would prefer to take a more im portant part in the service than that of mere hearers. The sermon has too long been the chief element in the service." There is a good deal of food for reflection in what Dr. Harper says. That the demand for theological and doctrinal discussions in the pulpit no longer exists is evident everywhere. As to the value or the importance of the sermon in church service the question depends largely on the qual ity of the sermon and the character of the congreKation. J It is said that a man is asold as he j fetrlsand it may be said that a ser- j mon is as long as it seems. Some j ten minute sermons are tiresome. Some hour sermons are too short. The writer of this remembers hear ing Henry Ward Beecher preach a sermon in Brooklyn an hour and a half long, and the only objection to it was its brevity. Lat Sunday R?v. Frank Crane preached his initial sermon as pastor of the People's church in Chicago The audience room was McVicker's theater which holds at least taree thousand people, and it was full from parquet to the top gal lery. The sermon was about an hour long, but it did not seem more than half that length. His theme a Paul's suggestion to Timothy: "Of these things pnt them in remem brance, charging tbem before the Lord that they may strive not about words to no profit." He well illus trated Paul's idea in the sermon. He dealt purely with the essentials without sensationalism or dogmat ism. He quoted and elaborated Hen ry Van yke's stanza: Four thlna-a man nul laarn to 4a If h- woaUl make hi caning true: To think without coufusioa ciearSjr; o love hi fallow mru sincere.?: Ta aci from honest motive purelr: To trusu in lw& and heaven -evuri j. There were other services besides the sermon, but they did not belittle or overshadow it. Of the thousands Indiana;" W. J.
