If you want to live in the kind of a town Like the kind of a town you like, You needn't slip your clothes in a grip And start on a long, long hike. You'll only find what you left behind, For there's nothing that's really new, It's a knock at yourself when you knock your town It isn't the town it's you!

And if while you make your personal stake, Your neighbors can make one, too, Your town will be what you want to see It isn't the town it's you! Anonymous. Fireside Talks With Members of the Newspaper Bible Class By REV. E.B. ALLEN, D.D. Pilgrim Congregational Church Oak Park, 111. . islta gfl SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON FOR OCTOBER 12, 1919: "FISHERS OF MEN." Golden Text: "Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become Ushers of men." Mark 1:17. Lesson: Mark 1:14-20. I. Men Who Enlisted. Our-.nation has been profoundly stirred in the last three years by the voluntary enlistment of thou sands of men in dangerous service for the sake of humanity. It has revealed depths of heroism which were latent and unexpressed. Now we are discovering that as these men return they have had a liberal edu cation. Travel and danger and dis cipline have left their mark upon them. In the main they are better, stronger and more efficient men than they were before. They show the results of their contact with a great cause and service for it. Two men enlisted with Jesus Christ one day. They were simple Galilean fishermen. They had no special .education. They had not been travellers in distant lands. They were provincial in their out look and ordinary in their living. But after they had been with Jesus Christ, striking changes were evi deniin their Jives. Not only was their character transformed but their service was most efficient and remarkable. They became centers of powerful influence by which other men were caught, in the net of u noDio loyalty to Jesus Uirist. There in was fulfilled His promise to them: "Come ye after me arid I will make you to become fishers of men," There is no-oiobler task than to be able to influence others. IL "Make You to Become." We are always becoming one thing or another. The process goes on through the years. Today has its hope for each one of us and fresh encouragement for every day. It is almost possible to become anything in the world which is worth while. Particularly is this true in the realm of character and of helpfulness. The line purpose of Jesus is to help us "to become." If we are willing to commit our lives to Him, He will make us "to become" influential fac tors in making the world better. III. The Traveler's Trail. A traveler was following a trail through the mountains when sud denly it came to an end. What should he do? In great bewilder ment he looked around. On the face of a cliff he saw a painted finger which pointed forward. He knew that mark had been made to guide travelers, and he followed where it pointed. Before it was, out of sight Denina, anouier rocK witn req let tering came into view, and in this way lie was guided until he. reached 'his journey's end. Is not this a pic ture of the manner in which the way to Christ, has been pointed out down through the ages? While he lived men followed him as that trav eler followed the trail, and since his earthly life ended, his disciples have blazed the pathway which leads to him and eternal life. I "The Master's plan and what a 'genius of a' plan, it is is this" (Dr. S. D. Gordon writes in Quiet Talks 'on Power), "that the world should be won, not by the preachers though we must have these men of j God for teaching and leadership out ny everyone who knows the story of Jesus telling someone, apd telling 'not only with his lips earn estly and tactfully, but telling with his life. That is the Master's plan of campaign for this World. And it makes a great difference to him and to the world outside whether you and I are living the story of his love and power among men or not."
