The auditorium of the Presbyterinu church was packed to overflowing Sun day evening, the OOOMiOB being the baccalaart ate atrmon to the high school graduates Dr. Spencer took for hi text the words, "This is the N'irtory That Overci nnth the Wor'd, Kven Our Faith." The sermon was a clear expo sition of aud strong plea for the faith spoken of in the text. Victory snggtats battle. Life is a battle and it was lifting that this class, jast about to em bark u on the sea of life, should come to the bOBM of Qcd for an inspiring meaaage, Faith i" mi oaaentiaJ to all human activ-ty. This is a century of doubt. The diTleion of labor eharact r lstic of ( ur ae is only made poaatbie by the faith which men have in their fellOWB.

"The path of peace k ads past the crosH of Ohtiai," A man ought to have confn! BOtifl him self now, becauae the individual counts for more now than ever before. Faith in himself will increase a man's utility if it is joined to faith in God and in Jesus Ubrist. iE ' r. 1 m . of Ithaca, srho was alMtod Pvosldaal ol tin Msoclatlon pstcnlaj . ly all the hotels were tilled and many were obliged to s cure rooms at the sanitarium.
