Dr. Cromer at Buffalo.
The Luther League Review for
October, together with a fine half
tone cut of Dr. Geo. B. Cromer, has
the following to say of the address
which he delivered before the con
vention of the Luther Leagu, of
America at its meeting in Buffalo
some time ago:
Mr.'George B. Cromer, LL. D., for
mer president of Newberry college,
delivered an address on "Some Car
dinal Points." Dr. Cromer's humor
at the beginning of his address was
much enjoyed. To his subject he
spoke in part as follows:
In the church where you are hold
ing your sessions are banners re
cording a marvellous history of "day
before yesterday," "yesterday" and
"today." What of tomorrow? A
pastor down in South Carolina-not
a Lutheran pastor--tells a story of
his baptizing some regroes. To make
sure that the sacrament should be
administer:d in an orderly manner
he had the candidates meet him on
the preceding Saturday for a re
hearsal. "Now," he said, pointing
to the first boy, "when I ask you to
morrow what your name is, you must
give me your first name. Suppose
you were to ask my name, I would
ay 'John Henry,' because that is my
first name. And tomorrow you must
all give me your first names just as
I have given you mine. So the next
day, when I asked the first boy his
name, he said 'My name is John
Henry.' I thought it rather strange
that he should have my name, but I
did not question it and went on to
the next, who also gave his name as
'John Henry.' And when the third
boy gave the same name I began to
think something was wrong. Just
then Deacon Jones came tip-toeing
up to me and said, 'Pastor, that boy's
name is not John Henr.y; his name is
Silas ever since he was born.' And I
said, 'It might have been Silas, but
it's John Henry now, and what's
more, he's got to live up to it.' "
So I suggest to you Leaguers, don't
forget that your name is "Lutheran"
and that you must live up to it.
The first cardinal point I will men
tion, without reference to their im
portance in the ord-r in which I
name them, is knowledge. First,
we must know why we are Lutherans,
what our Church holds, what it sets
apart, distinctively, from other de
nominations. You should know
what our church is doing. What
'do you know about the United Synod
of the south? .Your president said
this evening that we are spread over
a great deal of territory and are a
world power. We are, and in places
we are spread very thin. I thought
of the boy whose mother sent him out
to set an old hen and who protested
that he put 5o eggs under the one
hen. The boy explained, "I just
wanted to see the old thing spread
herself." Knowledge of one another
-encourages fellowship and sympathy.
This brings us to our second cardinal
point, which is organization.
The church today is groping after
methods because it realizes that in
some way it has failed to reach the
people. We need organizations for
teaching others and for actual service
in the field. We need sympathetic
fellowship and co-operation in the
service of the Master.
Another cardinal point is loyalty
loyalty to an ideal. An ideal is an
idea incarnate. We must put relig
ion into the people of our country
somehow. We complain of lawless
ness. What are we Lutheran people
doing to remove it ? We must be
gin with the young people, teaching
them religion, righteousness and vir
tue. The agnostic Professor Hux
ley admitted that if he were forced to
choose for his son between two col
leges, one of which gave religious in
struction and the other did not, he
would choose the former, for, he
said, under the conditions existing
then he did no: see 'how the relig
ious feeling, which is the essential
basis of righteousness, is to be kept
uip without the use of the B'ible." We
are slow down sonth. but I do not
know but that in somre things we are a
good examiple for you. For instance,
down there we still believe that the
Bible is the Word of God. We don't
know any better, and may be it is
better for us that we don't know any
My final message is, expect big
tings We vaunt ourselves on the
bigness of our country. We have
gotten into the habit of reckoning
everything by the dollar and the yard
stick and the peck measure. We talk
about success with your eyes shut.
We are not able to see into the
success of the future. You
remember when the glory of Rome
blazed as sunlight to the very banks
of the Ganges and Euphrates and
there was such pride in learning and
culture in Greece? And then do you
remember a Jew, a despised member
of a despised race, with an ideal
gathering a handful of fishermen and
walking up and down the dusty ways
of Palestine. misunderstood and un
appreciated by even His own friends
and followers on His way to Calvary?
You remember how His enemies
wagged their heads and said, "Come
down, if you can, and we will believe
you," and they buried Him that Fri
day, and then those Jews went home
content? Do you remember it? Then
came the glorious dawn of Easter
morning. It is the wonder of the

Ten Thousand Flowers.
The most insiring floricultiral
idea of the last quai m:r of a century
is the naturalizing of flowers by the
thousands in situations where LIcy
need absolutely no care after plant
ing. It is the easiest kind of gar
dening, for there is no weeding, wat
ering, hoeing, staking or tying. It
is the most artistic form of garden
ing, because the flowers fit perfectly
into the landscape. It is the most
effective kind of gardening, because
nothing can surpass in beauty a con
tinuous sheet of flowers all of the
same variety. (No matter how num
erous they may be, these wildings
never seem gaudy or vulgar.) And,
finally, it is the least expensive way
of getting hosts of flowers-flowers
like the stars of the Milky Way in
multitude. A thousand narcissus
bulbs. The thought takes one's
breath away; yet a thousand bulbs
of the poet's narcissus costs only $5
--a mere nothing compared with the
vision of loveliness which it makes
The general tendency on transat

A concession has been granted to
the "Empress del Ferrocarril Oesta
Kde Buenoe Aires" to extend two of
its lines of railway about 50 miles
each. All materials and machinery
