N Tins twentieth centurj pe riod of our boasted enlighten ment ami culture a world war does seem nn anachronism, a reversion to barbarism, a collapse of civilisation; but when you study the growing rivalries, the bitter antipathies, the conflicting passions that have mini, I men ami nations during the past quarter of a century, It becomes evident that the strain would have to reach the breaking point sooner or later. And now that this Beelsebuh of evils Is come whal is the criticism I hat one hears? "What has Chrlstlanlt) been doing w hen the lusts ami passions of men which in tin aggregate and in action on a large gcale make that hell on earth we call war lead them to behave in a way we might expect of the enragi 'i children of savages or tin- frenzy of luna tics rathr than the conduct of great, enlightened nations wax ing mighty in the Fullness of 20 centuries of Christian culture? Is it not a demonstrated failure'.' Ami the church, what Is It for, what does it amount to, if such thinus happen? Now this is one sufficient an swer to all such carping. While It Is to be regretted thai our civ ilization has not reached tho slate It ought lo have done; that It Is a thin veneer only; that the brute Inheritance, so far from being cast off. is still predomi nant; that professions of friend ship ami mutual regard and neighborly food will between people of different nations ami races Is only hypocritical dlplo maoy, a mask to cover the real feeling of hatred. Suspicion, and thirst to humble and subdue, nev ertheless Christianity ami I af firm this without fear of honest contradiction from any unbalsed mind lias not failed, bUl untold multitudes in Christendom, who claim fellowship with the Pierced 11., ml, have failed to bo Christ ians. So far from being a failure Christianity, as a fact, has never been given a fair, honest or ade quate. trial In this or any other age. Win n we realize that I'hrisPs kingdom, though opposed by a majority, even In so-called Chris tian lands, has grown to the strength it has in spite of dis loyalty, backsliding ami Indiffer ence, what man. In all fairness, has any right to make a charge of failure ' Besides the fact of his making any such accusation Is nn admission that It has a power and a mission In the extir pation of evil That n civilization which ts founded upon force and self Is utterly Incompetent to meet the needs' of mankind is a self-evident fact And now that we are having sueh a revolting expose of the falsity the hollow preten tiousness of modern civilisation, in Its wants of sincerity. In the great slackening of the sense of moral responsibility. In the pov erty of Its spiritual resources, is It not time to realize the neces sity of employing other methods, building on a different basis There are few. apparently, who yet realise that the old Individ ttall Stic Ideals are no longer workable That the world has enteretl upon a new era an age of dependence for both indi viduals and nations -and that the ideals governing actions must henreforth be social. With this thought In mind we have got to train and educate ourselves and our fellow-men up to the birth-throes of a new ' world life, in whteh croups of utterly unrelated peoples ob sessed with the same thoinrhts. studying the same problems and seized with the same enthusiasms, and whose hones and Joys is for a world view nnd a world sympathy- need a world loyalty to a universal brotherhood and a uni versal King. To enable ua to be all this and do all this we must get and have a gri at moth e, reei iv e a great Impulse, be in communication with a great personality ami fol low a great example. Jesus I'hnst la King, universal, immortal, eternal. In every phase and activity of human life lie is ab solute as Teacher, Guide and Kuler. 'ri,,. moral, religious and spiritual in human nature con- StltUte his realm, und lie is su premo in it. Whenever ami wherever the physical oi' material or sordid is accorded pre-eminence, distress ami disaster are the Inevitable consequences. This explains the curious fact that great wars are preeeetled by violations on a large scale of the precepts of the Lord Christ, which are the mater ials out of which a new civilisa tion can be iniilt, out of which it will have to be built If we are to have an order that will he any Im provement upon whal has been, nn order capable of withstanding the shocks of commercial expan sion, race prejudice anil national rtvalrlag, That we have failed, and failed lamentably with the old order, goea wit limit saying. Blood, tears, crpses scattered far and wide, prove it. The nations have sought to advance their Interests by leaguing then, selves with the powers of darkness anil it has brought them into the vallev of the shadow of death. Commercialism, militarism, pol itics, philosophy, socialism, rea son, not one of these guides men have been following, nor all to gether, have been able to avert the greatest calamity In tile his. tore of the human race. Is not tins cllmasterio of evil enough to convince them that they have been serving false gods'.' That goodness, not force. Is the day. star of progress? That the pierced hand, not the mallei fist, u the life-giving power. And will thev not now, as nations ami Indl vlduals, respond to the light tii.it light oth every man that comet h into the World by following the the Master of men, who is the King of Love ami the Prince of Teace?

Joseph L, by birth l.azar Yovtcheff, whose death is a n lion need from Sofia, Was the third and in reality the last i f i lie Bulgarian exarcha, The exarchate is older than the Bulgarian slate, and played a gnat part in calling it Into being and ( x te tiding its boundaries. The firman establishing the exarchate is dated March 1 1, 1870. The first exarch was not chosen till two years later, and held office for only five days. Ills successor nil., I for five years, and was compelled to resign when Russia declared war. Twelve days later Joseph was elected. Ilis promotion was extraordinarily' rapid. Born In 1840, he was a Jour nalist The second exarch made him Si cretary genera! to the exarchate In 1X72. He took orders that year on tho very day when the Patriarch excom municated the Bulgarian church. A month later he was an archinan drlte, In 1M7-7". he was sent to the bishopric of Wlddln, and he there after returned to Constantinople aa the right band of the exarch, In l7''i he became metropolitan of Loftcha and a year later exarch. lie was a man Of great courage, cool Judgement, skilled diplomacy, untiring patience and high organizing talent. lie carried the exarchate through the critical time of the war. He resisted all eft trts of Turks, Creeks and even shortsighted Bulgar ians to confine his authority to the territories of the new Bulgarian state, and he slowly ami steadily extended ii," sway of the Bulgarian church In Thrace and Macedonia and laid the foundation of the Greater Bulgaria, The story of his establishing new blsht pru s and emancipating the Bul garian schools from Creek control is sui h a chapter n, diplomacy as only Balkan chronicles can show. The second Balkan war virtually confined the authority of the t X- n nil. ne to the limits of the Bulgarian Mate, and Its importance as a polit ical institution for Die making of the big Bulgaria apparently disappeared - Manchester tJuardlan.
