If they wore isolated cases It would be bad enough. But the police of New York city report that annually from 1,000 to 1,500 girla disappear in that great, seething center of human activ ity. During 1914 there wore more than 4,000 men. women and girls re ported missing, of whom more than 3,200 were subsequently found and re turned to their homes. The year fol lowing, women and girls to the num ber of nearly 1,500 were reported as missing, of whom more than 1,200 havo since been accounted for. But that leaves more than 200 wo men and girls reported as lost In the course of one year, of whom no trace has afterward been found. That Is en tirely too large a number to bo com placent about, discount it as you will for one reason or another. What does thus being lost involve? Wholly apart from what 1» startling In connection therewith, such as murder or outrage, which may or may not be a result, every such disappearance1 means that the customary, normal ac tivities of the person have been stop ped, either temporarily or permanent ly. In other words, whatever plans for life that person may havo had, or someone else may have had in mind for her all these have been frustrated. Unless the person Is found, unless there Is a restoration, life will have to be commenced all over again If, In deed, such Is possible at all. Such a conception of what being lost means Is both material and spirit ual. Since in human beings the per sonal Is always mora important than the mere physical, whatever view we may hold of the relation of the two, the spiritual loss will be generally conceded to be much greater than the material. It is possible, therefore, tor us to use such circumstances as il lustrative of an extended meaning to the word lost. The story of the prodigal son, which Is at the same time the story of tho father's love, gives us a similar mean ing to this extended use of the term. The younger son, who went forth from the home and spent his sub stance in riotous living, was said to be lost, because his normal, customary life was interrupted. His father said that ha had been found when he re turned and this customary, normal life was resumed. We may hold various ideas concern ing the future life, picturing it to our selves after one fashion or another. But whatever our imagination may bring before us in mind, this much is i true. Cur normal spiritual life be comes interrupted when he are lost. Whatever plan the Almighty may I have for any individual life, whenever \ he misses the mark and thus becomes lost, he misses the normal, spiritual : activities planned for him of God. j Whatever this may involve In detail, and on this we may not be agreed, so 1 much we can agree upon. So far, I therefore, as men can agree on nomo I of the fundamentals of life, being lost is a terrible reality. DOLLAR SUNDAY TOMORROW AT SIMPSON M. E.

Pastors in Conference Hear Bishop Berry Score Grotesque, Flamboyant, Itinerant Evangelist. Atlantic City, Mar. 10:—Scoring the "grotesque, flamboyant, sensa tional Itinerant evangelist" as a dan ger, not only to the Methodist church but to all Protestantism as well, I Qishop Berry, of Philadelphia, creat ed a decided stir yesterday among both clergymen and laymen at the New Jersey Conference. Many of the bishop's hearers had participated in such campaigns, and a tense feel ing was noted throughout the assem blage as ho began his lashing of what he termed "self-appointed, roaming evangelists." The bishop explained, however, that lie intended no special reference to "Billy" Sun day or any individual revivalist. It was the system he condemned. "Any .system," said. Bishop Berry, "that supplants the church building with the tent or the tabernacle, or substitutes for the pastor's methods the startling or spectacular, is a menace to the church. The time has come when, in the name of God and for the sake of unsaved souls, the Methodist church must call a halt on this system of religious effort." Recovered from their firsf. surprise, the clergymen and laymen broke In to spirited applause. Continuing, the bishop said: "There has grown a new order in evangelism. Hundreds of personally appointed evangelists are touring the country. The majority of them are little Imitations of 'Billy' Sunday, using his methods and frequently his words. There is a stampede to get into the work. Every bishop of our church has felt the pressure of young men who wish to enter the field. Yet you can't blame the evangelists. It's what the people seem to want. The wide newspaper publicity, the shower of gifts, the reputation for possessing ability to secure thousands of con verts—all these have their appeal. Financial Aspect Attracts. "Then there is the financial aspect. Compared with the average minister, the evangelist has a large income. I know one man who, as a minister, re ceived a salary of from }1,200 to ίΐ,500 per year. Last year, as a trav eling evangelist, I am informed, he had a salary of $42,000. I am not finding fault with those who profit by this astounding mania. I am only questioning whether it is for the ben efit of the church to supplant pas toral evangelism with this startling and spectacular system. The number of thoso who feel that they want to be come evangelists is growing more rap idly than we want to admit. Is not the dependence that we place on the evan gelist and his party sure to discount the work of our own Ministers? "If our young fellows understand that this Is what the chlirch wants, will they not give up their ^responsibility to the evangelists 7 Thfcre lies the peril of this business. Is the Methodist preacher to surrender his place as the leading evangelist of Jthe church? No' Methodism alone, but all Protestantlsn is threatened^^^^*^^^^^^^^^^^ surrendering our responsibility to the roaming evangelists. Are we ready for It;" At this point the bishop was Inter rupted by cries of "No!" from all sec tions of the crowded church. Later In the day his stand was reiterated by J. A. Roselle, of Haddonfleld, repre senting the Laymen's' Association of the conference, which opened Its an nual meeting here this morning in Central church. "I.et every minister in the Methodist church bo his own evan gelist," he said. "We laymen look upon outsiders with not very much favor. If the preacher will stand by Ills job, the laymen will back him up." The speak er also took a fling at the "highbrow" minister, anxious to make a record with his pulpit utterances, saying: "What we are longing for Is the Gos pel of Christ. Some of you ministers In your efforts to climb up exclude that for which we come to church. Don't preach about Christ, preach Christ. Don't dilute the stuff you hand out to us on Sundays, but give us pure, un adulterated Gospel."

PUL1SHED EVERY SATURDAY BY THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION IMMIGRATION AFTER THE WAR Although this question was not specifically asked 161 agents volun teered information. The consensus of opinion seemed to be that restrictive measure will depend upon which side is victorious. There was a general agreement that the conquered would need restrictive laws to keep their people at home to make them help pay the debt, and every country con cerned, whether victorious or con quered, would need labor for the in evitable work of reconstruction. If restrictive laws are passed by the various foreign governments, compli cations will at once arise concerning the legal status of our naturalized citizens In Europe, those who go over j on a visit, etc. Our government will And It necessary to make careful con sideration of the status of our nat uralized citizens and the existing laws and treaties affecting this situation. A ; survey of our treaties with the na- , tlons, and of the specific laws of the various countries affecting citizenship, naturalization in another country, military service and emigration leads to the conclusion that American citi zenship carries very little protection abroad, and that the rights of nat uralized American citizens (as such) in the country of their birth are prac- | tlcally non-existent. Under the Rus sian law a man who becomes a citi zen of another country without the consent of the Russian government is deemed to have committed an offense for which he Is liable to arrest and Imprisonment If he returns. Italian subjects who have acquired citizenship in other countries are not exempted from the obligation of military ser vice. These citations merely illus trate a situation too various and too detailed to expound here. In those cases tn which there are treaties be tween the United States and the for eign coumry, me conamons unaer which naturalization does not free a former subject from obligation to the country of his birth are stated. In other cases, where no treaties exist, these conditions are not stated, but are nevertheless a part of the law and practice of the foreign country. It Is a jrrave International situation, and will be an immediate problem for the United States. This country will never be In a better position than It Is now, and will be at the end of the war, to enforce Its conception of the uniform value of American citizen ship upon other nations, and to insist that the ratification of this conception 'be made a preliminary condition to the enormous number of naturalized citizens now- In this, conn try and of native-born children of for eign-born parents, which together constitute forty per cent of our white population, It is necessary for this country to take upon itself the task of establishing once for all what their relations to their former land shall be. It Is suggested that at the end of the war an International Conference on Naturalization bo called to meet at Washington, to formulate a general naturalization law, which should be proposed to all the different countries as the basis of new naturalization treaties. PHYSICAL DEPT. NEWS AND NOTES Do you know that we claim the largest gymnasium business men's class in the state? It has recently grown to" such proportion that the class had to be divided: one section meeting Monday and Thursday eve nings from 5:15 to 6:30, the other meeting Tuesdays and Fridays at the same time. This change was made In order that the men might get more Individual exercise, especially In the games. This class also has as many as four first-class volley ball teams, and tho team captained by C. Nielsen has met all comers to date, including Newark and Montclair, and has not been defeated. There are thirty-nine busy business men enrolled in these classes who I come regularly for this recreative work, and for the benefits derived from regular attendance we would re fer you to any one of these men. We claim that It Is better to take a little time off twice a week and keep well the year around than to spend six weeks or so In the hospital or at home recovering from some sickness | which could have been prevented If you had been physically fit. A word to the wise Is sufficient. THRIFT CAMPAIGN STARTS MARCH 18 Starting Sunday, March 18th. and continuing- for seven days, there will be conducted in Perth Amboy what is known as a "Thrift Campaign."

A committee will meet at the T. M. C. A. Monday evening, with ?lolf Bauhalin as chairman, to "et up the program. The object ni such a cam paign is to bring to the attention of the people of our cKy the value of money and the importance of sys tematic handling of same. The pro gram will consist of "Thrift" talks, exhibits, distribution of pamphlets, stereoptlcon lectures, etc. BOYS GO TO BAYO.Vjifc A number of the older boy members ( of the Ipral Y. M. O. A. Boys' Division ι went to Bayonne last night where they met representatives of the Y. M. C. A. of that place in a basketball game and swimming meet. The local boys lost both events, the basketball game by a 29—16 score and the swim ming meet, 33—16. The basketball team was composed of Kurowsky, Tjornlund, Nelson, Grieve and t-awton. The locals won the relay fancy dive and plunge. Assistant Boys' Work Secretary, Harold G. I-awton went with the boys. — — When A Young Man Knows More Than His Father Sometimes a boy DOES know more than his father. Ours would have been a very dif ferent history aa a nation If Abe Lin coln, age 16 or so, had been guided by the wisdom of Thomas Lincoln, ago 36 or so. "Now, Abe," we can Imagine him saying, "don't waste lime readin' them, books. Readin' never done me any good; and what was good enough for me's good enough for you." Lincoln knew more than his father. It was a divine disobedience that led him to close his ears to the words of the man who had brought him into the world, and open his heart to the vision that was to help him conquer the world. Robert Louis Stevenson knew more Liian his father. That father would have shackeld him to the dry problems of engineer ing-. He could not understand the ob stinacy of the boy who refused to ap ply himself. That obstinacy save a great author from the misery of life as a medioc*e engineer. That obstin acy enriched, the ages. Jesus Christ knew more than his father. "Thy father and I have sought Thee, sorrowing," said His mother to Him. And neither Kls mother nor His father could hear the Voice that was calling Him away from them, the Voice that was to find fathers and mothers and brothers and sisters for Him among all those who should do His will. .L,et no man despise thy youth, wrote Paul to Timothy. The boy who has not some firm convictions and a willingness to de fend thera, even against the argu ments ot those older than himself, is not likely to amount to much either as a boy or as a man. But they must be convictions, not mere prejudices, not selfish Impulses or passions. X know two men who. as boys, were wiser than their fathers. One boy is the office manager of a large manufacturing concern, and his salary is $10 a week. "Better go on in school," said his father to him when he was Π years old. "Better go to college; better get all tbe education you can while you've I got the chanr^^YmiJl need It after But the boy "knew more" than his father. He «alt school and went to work. He was promoted from offlce boy to bookkeeper, from bookkeeper to head bookkeeper, from head-bookkeeper to office manager. His path looked golden and long. And then suddenly he stopped. "You see that man," said the presi dent of his concern to me the other day, pointing him out. "You see that man? There Is a man that might have become general manager of this concern if he had had a college edu cation. His salary might have been $20,000 a year: instead it's $2,000. He's reached his limit. What a shame that he hasn't education enough to go on." He "knew more" than his father. And his boyish obstinacy is costing him $18,000 a year. I know another man who "knew more" than his father. "Keep yourself clean, my son," said the father to him, "you'll thank Heaven you. did." But the boy "knew more" than his father. He knew that every young man who is worth his salt has got to sow his wild oats. So he sowed right merrily. I saw him the other day. He came to me about getting a job. Ho was pale and anaemic, and his hands twitched, and he was forever rollins· cigarettes. He could not con centrate his mind on one subject for even a couple of minutes. There was writing on his face— deep lines of writing. Anyone could read that writing. It said: "The wages of sin is death." I couldn't give him a job: no man could. God knows what will become of him. He would starve to death if it were not for the few dollars a week he gets from his father— The father who, he thought, didn't km v as much as he. Youth la the mainspring of the world. Its insurgency, ita Inquisitiveness, its adventurousness, its eagerness to try the untried and do the impossible, drives the world forward in spite of the conservatism of age. Fortunate are those of us who rec ognize the divine importance of youth's cock-sureness and conceit, and yet know how. gently and appre ciatively, to temper It with the riper judgment that has come to us through added years.—Association Men.

THE IMMIGRANT In this time of special anrietj among our foreign-born brother· 11 is well for us to exercise great pre· caution, that we may not be misun derstood. Our service is for all, re Jgardle-s of nationality and should be rendered wherever there Is need. While this is a time to use good Judg ment, it is also α time of great oppor tunity. Many are now seeking citi zenship who have not considered II necessary before. They must be Americanized as well as made citizen* This chance should not be neglected. "THE LEAST OF THESE" Dago; and Sheeney; and Chink: I Greaser; and Nigger and Jap; 'The Devil Invented these term·, S I think. ^TOuri at each hopeful chap. m I To this land of his heart's ilsell % To rear his brood, to build his hem* And to kindle his hearthstone fir* While the eyes with Joy are blurred Lo! wo make the strong man sink. And stab the soul with the hateful word, Dago; and Sheeney; and Chink. Dago; and Sheeney: and Chink: These are the vipers that swarm Up from the edge of Perdition's brink To hurt and dishearten and harm. Oh, shame! when their Roman for· bears walked Where the feet of the Caesars trod. Oh. shame! when their Hebrew fath ers talked With Moses, and he with God. These swarthy sons of Japhet and Shem Gave the goblet of Life's sweet drink To the thirsty world, which now gtvM them Dago: and Sheeney; and Chink. Dago: and Sheeney; and Chink; Greaser: and Nigger and Jap: From none of them doth JehovaH I shrink. He lifeth them all to his lap, And the Christ, in his kingly grace When their sad, low sob he hears. Puts his tender embrace around ou* rae As he kisses away its tears.

To practice economy In lltti· things and forget it In the larger one· is no economy at all. To walk a mile in order to save five cents carfare may not be good policy, for the time may be worth many times the saving. It has been figured out that it doea not pay a carpenter to stoop down to pick up a nail, for the time he waste· would buy two nails. Tou often see men and boys in the big city dashing In front of autos, dodging trolley care and taking desperate chances with their lives to save a few momentf time, and then stop for ten or fifteen minutes to watch some gentleman in a window advertising a corn cure. Be consistent! It never pays to buy something sim ply because it Is cheap. If you do not need It. it is dear at any price. True value consists In getting the maximum return for the money spent. You can save money by doing with out eating—at least cutting it down to stopping the craving for food. Ton can eat candy Just before dinner and not want soup and meat: but that la saving money to hire a doctor. True economy does consist In doing without some things—needless luxuries—but but not In doing without the necee·! ties of life. There are many way· to save, but look out that In saving at the spigot you don't forget the bung hole.—American Bankers' Assn.
