E. B. ALLEN, D. D. Pilgrim Congregational Church Oak Park, III. SUNDAY sdHOOL LESSON FOR JULY G, 1919: "THE CHURCH: IT'S LIFE AND WORK." Golden Text: "Christ also loved the church, and gave himself up for it." Ivphes ians 5:25. Lesson Acts 2:37-17; I Tlicssalon- ians 5:11-15. " "The Founding of the Church." It was very natural that the church should be started. The early chris tians felt the need of getting to gether. They were helped by talk ing with one another about their common problems and duties. There is always strength in union. Those early meetings in private homes where they used the psalms for their hymns and repeated together the Lord's Prayer, besides participat ing frequently in the Lord's Supper, were the means of developing chris tian character of the finest sort. It cannot be developed so well apart from the church today. It is the mission or the church to develop the christian character and its members. This character is to be expressed in service for God and for humanity. The church is not a close corporation for the selilsh en joyment of a little group of people. Today the world is looking to the church as never before to help in the great tasks of reconstruction. These tusks depend upon our having the right sort of men and women. Character is of primary importance. All systems of government will fail and even the League of Nations it self in any form will prove power less unless we have dependable men and women to constitute nations. A vision of social service compels a new type of church building or an addition to those already exist ing. The social life of our young people and the needs for fellowship and acquaintance among members demand frequent get-together occa sions apart from those devoted to worship. Church Membership. Church mem bership means more today than ever before. Whether men belong to the church or not, they need its tuniug up process constantly. The tones of goodness, faith, courage, generosity, rcverance and love are all less strong unless they arc keyed to the true pitch of righteousness. This is what the church is for. The new work of the church in volves social service as never before. There are some useless church members of course, "Yes," said Aunt Sarah, surveying her bandaged wrist, "the doctor says it's a bad .sprain; and the minister says I know now how the church feels, in not having the use of all its metnbers, The minister didn't mean that for just a joke, either he looked at me as If he wanted to see how I'd take it.

A word like that comes home pretty straight when one of your 'own members is useless, and worse.

I've never felt J oniigefi 10 (10 wuai uiu cuurcii warn ed done. 1 felt it was a favor, my 'doing it at all, and half the time I let someone else do it instead. When I was through with work at home, and with what things 1 "ked 'o do outside, then I was willing to do something in the church if it was the kind of work that suited me. I guess I've been just about as useful a member to the church as the sprained hand is to me, all still' and crippled, and refusing to .bend more than an inch or two. 'There's lots of things I -need to do, but I can't use this member to do them that's certain. That's the way the minister has felt about me, I guess. I've been a useless mem ber for thirty-live years, that's the long and short of it; and, if the rest of the members had been like me, the church would have been as para lyzed as old cousin Josian Hones, that can't move hand or foot. I'm ashamed of myself I truly am and tilings are going to he ditterent from now on": and Aunt .Sarah nodded her head with firm determination. as she looked at the church spire from her window. Poet Views Matrimony. Edward Fitzgerald, the translator of the Persian poet, Omar Khayyam, was n more or less gonial opponent of matrimony as a state. One day he said to his friend, Mlsa Ellon Churchyard of Woodbrldge: "Do you know, Noll, what marriage Is?" Miss Churchyard thought not "Then I'll tell you," satd ho. "Mar rlage Is standing at one's desk, nicely settled to work, when a great big bonnet pushes in at the door and asks you to go for a walk with It." Cleve land Leador. The Advlce-8eeker. "When a man asks me for advice," said the good-natured person, "I al ways find myself getting into a dis cussion." "Well," replied Mr. Slrtus Barkor. "most of us ask for advice because we would rathor arguo than work." , Washington Star: Incllnod to Be Flighty. "Necessity la the mother of Inven tion." "I blto! What's the answer?1; "Oh, Jtmertely struck me(tnat of alt big family the flying machined have been the hardest Jo ralae." Boston Transcript, If One of the Little Scamps Says "Nan, Nah, Ahhh," It Means "I Vt Love You." ' "L-a-a-a-h!" Perhaps you wouldn't understand just what that meant If you heard a human being say it, but when it comes from a monkey you can know that the monk is Interested In you and is saying: "Hello! How are you, old top?" And if the cute title beast adds: "Nah, nah, ah, ahhh!" that means "I love you." It's all very simple, according to Dr. John Deason, who asserts that mon keys have a language of their own and express real Ideas. They talk so plain ly that Dr. Deason, who Is a Chicago physician, has no trouble at all in learning just how they feel and what they like and dislike. Dr. Dea3oa spends part of each day conversing with monkeys. All monkey3 are natural bluffers, lie says. They will not bite as a rule, bui make demonstrations of great ferocity to frighten their foes. They have like and dislikes among humans as well as among themselves. The fonmlss crt fickle. They select the males and bos: the house. So Dr. Deason say3. "They have entirely different calls for Informing their mates, their chil dren and tholr comrades of danger,'' he explains. "They utter warning with a half-bark. Their love convex sation is low and cooing." rDr. Baabou has lisurcd out a larnc part of the monkey language, he aays "Kr" means "Let me alone," vhiU "Erk, ork, erj" means "Help! holt help!" "Mult, muk" means 'Tood, ood and got a move on you!" When a monkey is angry or in pain lie says "Aye, aye, ayko," and when ha is happy lie remarks "Zulus, zulus, zulus." The ringtails and the Javas havo different dialects.Vbut to the student the difference is quite plain, accord ing to Dr. Deason.
