WOMAN'S COLUMN 'A Department Devoted Especially to the Interests of Ladies and the Home. Edlled by PRUDENCE PRUDE On nrrowmIndediicss. Tho hidlvldual who analyzes lion--estly hls posslbllltles for tho fullest roundcd achlovement in llfe, early comes to the knowledgo that narrow mlndednosa is tho foo of every effort and tho stumbllng block ln tho path of success, not only tho narrow mlndedness which is of himself and which he can hope, thercfore, to up root, but that which Is Implanted wlthln the mlnds of other peoplo and which perslsts in stamping its dls npproval or lts crlticism upon all tho mass of matter and those masses of men and problems which, it does not understand. And tho indllvdual who would mako tho most of hlraself, has tens to crush out his own blgotry and tendenoy to illlbernl views and to look upon llfe beyond hls own ho rlzon wlth a broader, moro lmpartlal vlew and to regard tho efforts of hls nelghbors and the fallvtres and wcak ness of tho next man wlth a less pre Judlced eyo 'or tho solflsh and en tlrely laudablc reason that ho would deslre to other nien to reclprocate the understanding sympathy and to allow him the samo broad margin for hls foibles and blunders. There are few of us who escape some element of narrowness of vlews ln our relatlons wlth other men and one cannot bo too early ln castlng from hlm all that savors of prejudlco and partlallty and blas. It Is abso lutely lmpossiblo that a man should know all tho circmnstances which af fect the declslons of hls nelghbor and It ls, thercfore, narrow and de cldedly unfalr, to attempt to judge that nelghbor save In tho most unrc strlcted and broad classification. In all tlmes, narrowmindedness has worked evll and harra. Rellglon nnd freo thought have, especially fclt Us cramplng domlnanco but one of the most hopeful signs of the passlng years has been the wldenlng of men tal limltatlons and the deepenlng t soul capacitlos and the erasure ot thosc narrow boundarles which have formerly conflned the Ideas and am bitlons and sympalhles of each man to hls hlde bound clrcle. More people ask of themsolves, "Am I my broth er's keeper?" and more frequcntly the answer- ls, "In a large sense. yes." And thls Is a broader human itarlanlsm that wlll cventually raake posslble the attalnment of the highest. pinnacles of thought and actlon. Men and women aro Hving less wlthln the boundaries of themsclves. They are giving the next man elbow room and breathing space. They may not understand hlm or hls mo tlves but they give hlm credlt for havlng purpose ln llfe and they aro chaiitabel enough to think that ho may not understand them in any clearer sense than they him. They would never have been a Salem wltcli If other Salemnlles had not been nar row mlnded nor a martyred Joan of Arc If the Engllsh had not been vic llms of blgoted, narrowed bellefo which gavo birth to cowardly super stltion. No man would be called a crank, or genlus would be termed crazy if other men, average in their own abllities gave their fellows credlt for extraordinary and unusual capac lties denied to themselves. Women, especially, aro reproached for snobblshness (form of narrow mindedness) based upon an "accldent of birth," posilion in society, or other attalnment. Ono often encounters tho woman who will tell you that she detests the rlch becauso of their wholesale snubbing of those who were not born wlth a silver spoon in their mouths or who dld not, at least, ac qulro such a spoon in early infancy. But if one is qulto honest the fact proves that every woman who feols hurt becauso a woman "hlgher up" on life's slldlng scale snubs her, has her own little set and daily and in tentlonally snubs other women whom sho regards as commoners, sceing thereby no Inconsistency. Tho law yer's wlfe who ls snubbed by tho at torney general's wlfe and who in tum snubs tho clerk and hls wlfe ls as unforgivlngly narrow as tho wlfe of the hlgher legal Hght. 5' Nor does narrow mindedness mean tho untutored state of tho unlettered man, or woman of limlted opportunl ty. (Mablo, in hls essays on books and culture, point3 out very empha Ically that there is just as much vul garity and provlnclalism In a Parlsl an crowd a3 In a backwoods settle ment though tho formor may bo moro wealthy and better dressed and just as much narrowmlndedness In tho man who conslders the dress and customs of the boulevard unapproachablo as In tho lnhabitants of tho mlnlng camp who recognlzo no exlstenco beyond their horizon.

"Old fashioned" is the phrase that has been beslowed upon the home- bound mother to cover all her short comlngs; and everythlng she says. an deevrything she does, ls llghtly set aslde wlth ihls odlum attached to It. "Old fashioned!" how sho hates tho term! It seem3 to me that ln the maln principles underlylng our lives we are about tho same today as wo were when I was young," said a mother to me recently. She was chaflng un der the sigma of "old fashioned." "It Is on ly In outward signs that we dlffcr. And tbese outward thlngs wlll bo changlng forever; so what is the good of making a fetich of them, of giving up our soul to them?" Thls motherl s not more than five- and forty, but she has three daugh- ters of the exuberant, hlgh-headed. ultra progresslvo, work-a-day type, who, though stlll in their "teens" re gard themselves as qulto grown and thoroughly capahle of manaclnir themselves wlthout tho interferenco of a mother wlth Methuselah-llkc ideas. Yet the mother is far from Ignor- ant. So was I nher youth a govern- ess in certain noble familles of botli England and France. In Parls she llved at one timo "just around tho corner" from Victor Hugo, Emlle Zo- ia, Sara Dernhardt. and other talent- ed folk, and she talks wlth perfect knowledge of the conspicuous and In- consplcuous members of the royal famlllo sof Europe. Sho ls famlllar wlth the names ot the great wrlters an dgreat muslci- ans and their best works. She has tutored more than one promlnent cit- Izen of New York City, and sho knows something of tho philosophy or llfe, anrt of the shams and failures of human society. But slnce hcr marriage affluance In wealth has not been ehrs, and tho demands of an over lncreaslng fa mily havo causcd her to submergo her welfare lnto that of her children, as all mothers wlth largo hearts and moderato' means will do.

Today bcgan a scrlcs of Chrlstlau Mass Mcet lngs, wbich nre to continue durlng four succcsslvo Sunday aftcrnoons in tho largcst Audltorium of Brooklyn, tho Acadcmy of Muslc, undcr tho nus plccs of "People's l'ulplt Assoclatlon." Tho toplc for tho day was: "What Congrcgatlonallsts, I'resbylcri ians and Mcthodlsls rnusl aurrcndvr in thc interests of Vhurch Fcdcratton." Pastor O. T. Uussell of Brooklyn Tabernacle dcllvcred thc addrcss. Thc spnclous and clegant Audltorium was cruwdcd' so that an overllow mectlng wlth auotber speakcr was decmcd ad visablo. On thc platform belnd tbo speakcr wero sovoral bundrcd meu, In cludlng a numbcr of mlnistcrs. The uudlcnce as a wbole was a very in tolllgont one. Tbo llonorablo .1. F. Rutherford. Attorucy-at-Lnw, lntro duccd Pastor Uussell, who sald: I tako for my toxt tho Word of the Lord through tho Prophet, "Say yo not, A Cotifcderacy, to all them to whom thls peoplo shall say, A Cou fedcracy; nelther fear yo their fcar, nor bo nfrald" (lsalah vlli, 12). Tho deslrableness of oneness in tho Churcb of Cbrlst is beyond dispute. Tho lmpropriety of sectarlanism or dl vislon Is uow generally conceded, al though twenty years ago many de fended tho dlvlded condltlon of tho Church as belng helpful. They polnt cd to our Lord's words, I nm tho Vlne and yo aro tho brancbes; overy branch in mo that beareth not frult my Fa ther, the Ilusbandman, takcth away. And every branch that beareth frult ho pruneth, that lt may brlng forth moro frult (Johu xv, 1-5). They clalm ed that the dcnomlnatlons wcro the brancbes. Tho ovldent tcachlug of tho Master hero Is that hls people are relatod to hlm In an indlvldual sense and not as partles, sects or dcnomlna tlons, aud that they aro dcalt wlth from tbo Indlvldual standpoint as one Church and not many. St. Paul cnunclatcd tho same great truth (1 Corlnthlans xll. 13), declarlng that tho Lord Jcsus is tho Ilead of the Church, which Is hls Body, and that as the human body has many mem bers under tho full control of tho head, cscept when dlseased, so tho Churcb. as members In partlcular of tho Body of Chrlst, aro all to bo subjcct to the Lord as their Head. They aro all to be so connectcd wlth their nead, and thus wlth each other, that whon ono suffers, all suffer wlth lt, and when ono rejolces. all rejoicc wlth lt, be cause they all havo fellowshlp in tbo ono splrit of tho Head. ' Ilcnce the eyo cannot say to tbo band, nor the hand to the foot. 1 havo no nced of you, for every raomber ls necessary to theprosnorltof the Body as a whole. And'as the jolnt supports and strength ons tho Ilinb and ls jolued tbcrcto by sinews. ctc. so indlvldually God's people are unlted to each other ln the bonds of grace and truth and love. It must be conceded that Church Federatlon or Confedcracy ls In many respects qulto a different thlng from tho Church'8 oneness illustrated by our Lord's parable of tho vlne. and the Apostle's illustratlon of tho human body. Neverthcless since a Federatlon Is proposed as the nearest posslble op proach to tho splrltual cnjolncd Oulon, lt is proper that wo and all Chrlstlans everywhero should enqulre carefully tho cost and tho galn Imptiod In thc Federatlon movoment. As tho pro gram shows, thls serles of meetlngs wlll conslder Impartlally tho cost of Federatlon to tho crceds of the most promlnent dcnomlnatlons. Flrst In the 11st today wo conslder the sacrlflces of Congregatlonallsm, Prosbyterlanlsm aud Mcthodlsm. (1) As to church government very sllght concesslons wlll bo requircd of any of tbo federatlng dcnomlnatlons. Dcnomtnatlonnl llbcrtlcs as respects forms of worshlp nnd methods of gov emmeut and dlsclpllnc are to bo permlt ted very looso reii. Tho Federatlon pro poses chlefly tue rcgulatlon of home and forolgu inlsslon work and a geueral watch-caro over the Interests of the federated systems nloug the llncs of polltlcal Influence. Tho cxpoctatlon ls that tho polltlcal power of tho Federa tlon wlll havo consldorablo to do wlth mouldlng of lcglslatlon favorablo to tho Federatlon, nnd later on. unfavorablo to tho smallcr dcnomlnatlons not asso clatcd ln tho Federatlon.

Fcw of us would ogrco wlth Brother John Calvin, tho great archltect of thls crced, that felloW-Chrlstlans rejectlng thls "uoc trlno should bo burned at tho stake, as Brother Colvln declded ln rcspect to Brother Servetus. No, tbank God! Wo havo outgrown somo of thc nar rowness which so terrlbly fettercd somo of our brethcrn durlng the dark ngcs. Few any longor belleve that there aro "lnfants lu hell uot n span long," becauso non-elect. Even wbero the doctrlnc of Electlon ls stlll bltndly hold. fcw havo tho temerlty to stato their bellef that any lnnocent Infant was prcdcstluated to ovcrlasllng tor turc. But Brother Calvln's contcn tlon expressed ln the Westminster Confcsslon ls that thcro arc no innocent lnfants that the condomnatlon of Original Sln was to ctcrnal torture and stbat Adam's children, "born ln sln and sbapcn ln Inlqulty." wcro thercfore not Innocent, but gullty born undcr the scntencc of ctcrnal torment and sal vablo from lt only through mcmbcrshlp in tho Church of Christ.

Doctrlnally Metbodlsm Is Indlrectly opposed to Calvlnlsm In every senso of the word. Posslbly Mctbodlsts wlll havo less to coucedo than Calvlnlsts. becauso. althougu ln Wesley's day tho doctrlnc of Free Grace was combattcd on every band. It is uow the tocit falth of the vast majorlty of Chrlsteudom. Tho doctrluo that God had premedl tated and Irrevocably foreordalned tho cternal torture of our raco except a handful of the Elect was too horrlblo a ono to stand. So thc Methodlst doc-. trine of Dlvlne Lovo for all and Freo Grace as respects salvatlou bas ap pealcd more and more to the growlng lntclllgcucc of manklud. Nevcrtheless wo cannot do otborwlso than concede that lt will matter little to tho thou sands of mllllons which all "orthodox" creeds conslgn to eternnl torture whether they shall suffer cternal agonies as a result of Dlvlno loveless ness ln foreordalnlng their sufferiugs or to Dlvlne Inablllty to outwork for their bcnellt the supposed advantagcs of Freo Grace arranged for them by Dlvlne Love.

We can all assent to thls, there foro let us examlno tho facts. Tbo Blble assurodly declares a Dl vlne electlon nccordlng to a Dlvlue purposo foreordalned but not such an flectiou ns Brother Calvin outllned. God foreordalned the solectlon of a Church, predestlnating tho uumber who would constltuto lts tucmbershlp and tho charactor of each one who would bo acccptable as a momber.
