He launched his sermon with a re cital of the first transgressions In the garden of Kden and depicted In graphic words the effort of father Adam and mother Kve lo hide from (iod when He eoiiRht them after they had sinned. "Yon Can't Kool iot!." "You can '00J your wife, you run fun your children, you can fool your neighbors, you can double-cross the world, but you can t get away from Ood," he exclaimed Adam, he declared, was the first woman suffragist.

FEAR FRONTAL ATTACK Punished Too Severely by Canadians; Allies Arc Not Worrying. NORTHERN SECTOR INACTIVE Artillery Fills jn While Infiintry Rests for New Assaults. London, April 22 Kventa along tha battla Una In Franca and Hal glum seem to be shaping themselves for a resumption of the great Oar man offensive Since tha savage at tack on tha American forces at Hlecheprey on Saturday thara haa been no fighting of an extraordinary nature along the front, hut thara 8 hava been Indications that tha Teu tons ara almost ready to resume tha Sledgehammer blows they hava been aiming at tha allied armtea. Fnlass raoent operations hava been feints. It la j.robabls that tha coming week will wltneaa two great turning movements by tha Oermana. Ona probably will pivot on the village of llobecq, northwest of. Itethuna, on the southern side of tha aaltant driven Into tha allied lines aaok of Armentleres. Tha other la exptMtatf to develop at or near Meanll, north of Albert, on tha north side" of tha ' Momma salient. , IVopoeo Hldsi Blaanea, The purposa of these rnovsmenta . will ba to out deep Into tha allied Una on each alda of tha promontory that projots eout Into Oerman-held territory and terminates on tha aid Arrss-Lans front. Tha Germans hava attempted two great frontal at larks on tha defenses of Isina and Arraa, but they hava been repulaed with terrlbla losses to the, attackers. These loasea were Inflicted upon tha anatny befora ha reached tha atronger allied poaltlons In that aeetar and since tha second defeat at Faetubert and Glvsnchy tha Germane hava not oared to laka up tha task of arjvlng tha Canadian! frpm thalr poalUona along Vlmy ridge on eaoh alda of that fraat natural bulwark aafara Arraa. If sucoeasful attack were ta ba 1 launched by tha Oermans at Hobecq ' ' and Mesnll, tha British might ha forced to withdraw from Arraa with out having a ohaaca to defend their, positions thara. Heavy artillery ft ra at both places haa been reported and a local attack at Maanll showed that tha Oermana wera capable at that point of resuming offensive opera- . tlons. t Nosnhcarn Front Inactive.
