.pi v.; i'i' i 4 ;ff i 1 U ty. Time was when the imagination was supposed by many to be essen tially heathen and untrustworthy, and the more it was avoided the better. There was a great ado when Horace Bushnell suggested that the imagination was a relig ious faculty, and that religion had too long been the poorer for the lack of it. Imagination is now no longer regarded as a mere "luxury of devotion," but one of the essen tials of it. True criticism might be conveniently summed up in the H M. .1 worns, -put yourself in his place;" and we are now trying to get back, and to put ourselves in the proph et's place in order to understand tne prophet. Imagination is not fancying something to be which never had an existence, but to pro duce to the mind something absent and distant, so that we can stand in the presence of it and see things from there. Imagination is the war by which the soul brings the dominion of the "Elsewhere" un der the dominion of the "Here." , Half the theological feuds have been due to a persistant refusal to put ourstlvjs "in another's place. Controversialists as a rule used to ; be more anxious to put their oppo- Dents into the position of wiong thinking, than to put themselves into their-opponents' places, and see hew things looked from there, j The imagination is the traveling , : power ot the soul, its mapiecarnet' !

If vps refuge inspiration stHl for noble achievements," even tnough its ways be not as our ways we cannot settle its case with a prompt and easy anathema. The imagination helps the other side to say the be6t that can be Eaid for itself, and is more anxious to help than to hinder. Church unity is now in the air, and let us al) hope for much from it; but it will 6tay in the air until there is aereatereniDlovment of the imagination than them has been hitherto on the part of all ot us. in Kidd's "Social Evolution." there is brought out the failure of science to deal scientifically with religious phenomena because, while it has very patiently dealt with all other phenomena of the human race, it has very promptly and im patiently relegated religious phe nomena to the region of fancy or superstition. But religion persists, and therefore its persistence must be accounted for in some worthier way; it is worth looking into again. So, with the differant types of Christian experience which thrive and continue in spite four finding them absurd, we "must find some weightier explanation than that of whim by which to account for them. In short, we can do nothing with them until we have felt something of theni. as their adherents have and then perhaps we shallnvfaut iu uu away vvuu umjr; - Imagination fc" , . i.. and we are nsr Bn aar ' when we; nave reallv ourselves ""lianothers's place, and realized now many mings reasonably en dear it to him, and how hard it is for him to get out of it. Church unity needs men who can say good things for the other side and the bad for one's own. If all the de nominations could do this for a lit tle, the cause would be helped. It takes no less imagination to see our selves as others se3 us than to see others as they really are. We have to approach ourselves imagi natively. Love is unhkelv to thrive without a good deal of im agination, it will be, a forced and doctrinal and dutiful loving with- out it. It takes a vastlv greater soul to see the good noints of an opponent than to seo the bad ones. this is no easy acquirement. It comes only by prayer and fasting. it demands the best and purest in us, and so we call it a religious facultv. Imagination is the intel lect at work on the side of the heart, as it always ought to work. All this recent and painstaking search into the life of Testis has had its root in the demand of the imagination to see the world as he saw it, to get his consciousness about men and God, to get back to himself. What was once a re buke, to say that a man was imag inative, is now almost a requisite and commendation. It. does not deal with what never existed so much as with what existed at a distance from us. It is the great fact-illuminating faculty. But shall we try to put ourselves into the dace of everybody? Are there not some things that must he denounced at once and on sight? No, doubt; but, on the whole, no man can denounce so successfully as the one who ha3 gone through an opinion, root and branch, and sympathetically. bvmpathy is tne greatest authority we ever speak with. It is strange how hard many find it be eloquent un less they are indignant. The elo quence of love has never been put to the full test of its possibilities. The Jvorst punishment vou can de pict is "the wrath of the Lamb," and you cannot do it until you have experienced some of that life. The denunciations of love are the only final denunciations. This eloquence is slow to kindle as we are slow to learn, but its glow lasts longer. The man who uses his imagination has the world open to him; he will never find life effete nor his brother's possibilities plav ed out. The mornings dawn full oi po8 bile discovery lor, he c'oes not grow old. Suffer he Kill who uses his imagination, but it is the tullowship of the sufferings of his Lord, and through them he will know a new Christ of iniinate re- vealings, and life and humanity win open wider gates. Inmgina tion is experience, it is the ber-in ning of charity, and its conquests have no end. Sunday School Times. Who is to richest man in the world?
