Duty Of Christianity to Evangelize the World. By Rev. Jno. A. Rice, D. D. PMtor St. JohnJVL E. Church, South, St'. Louis, Mo. Some years ago, the question wai asked Whit is a college? The at tempt to answer it shook the educa tional world .'in America from center to circumference. Another question Is now beginning to be asked: What Is a church? Without undertaking to give a definition of it, let me ask, in this lnitia! paper, what the church la tor? The New. Testament reveals three distinct tasks to which It is committed. ... Firpt,"vtnaV of evangelization. The church Is divinely commissioned to reach for the lowest and the least man in the least land and offer him sonshlp to the Eternal God offer him a divine power, which- lifts him out of the bog and places him upon the highest levels of human life, where God and the soul are in fellowship. Thla alone were an Immense priv ilege. Teaching the Art of Living. The church Is commissioned also to teach and train those who are rich with its evangelistic message. The term, Religious Education, has 'ome to mean a specific thing in our untry, namely, the training of the ople in the local church in those :ep matters which pertain to the of living. 1 am not npw speaking tje work of education in schools, -jges and universities, but tbe work ducation at.our doorB, in the con atipp. Every agency in reach uld be employed to the utmost in is important mission. Indeed, the .ocal church could be made a sort of university for all the people, in which the simple, practical arts and virtues of everyday life should be taught and enforced. Only recently has this special phase of the church's work re ceived anything like adequate atten tion. The New Testament word for It la Edification. 8chool of Religion Needed. if course, the Sunday School Is the ter for all this work, although the vities of the church should extend ugh the entire week and the Sun- School should cease to be so aed. It should be called the School Religion or tbe Church School or nothing else that indicates it to be all-the-week activity. During this .me various, andsundryjclubsj classes, DOINGS OF THE VAN LOONS .... WV CERTAINOf VIEW- MCSKT, IT 15 so much* moke- pisaswh ANP ACftE6A8l£ To 5TAN W4HV HOME IN A. COOt. PLAC&. UKC.

T.hickly settled neigh borhoods, an we shall see, offer fine opportunities for the development of things spiritual. The third task to which tbe church is committed is that of Christianizing the social order that of Infusing the spirit of Jesus into every nook and corner of our life. Nothing is foreign to the interest of the church. Neighborly Love Essential. If religion pervades and colors the whole life then ours Is serious busi ness, for it will let no corner of the world escape its influence. The sooner we learn that Christianity Is not a thing to be practiced in a corner the better for the world. The question of the eighteenth century, touching Chris tianity, was, Can it be made to square with the human reason? Of the nine teenth, Can it be made to square with the results of scientific research? Of the twentieth, What can it do? We must learn to enforce not only love of God, whom we cannot see, but love to our neighbors, with whom we are living In constant contact. Neither without the other is Christianity whatever else It may be. Everything that interests his neighbors must interest him, If he Is a genuine follower of the Christ. It is the mission of the church—the rural as well as the city—to evange lize tbe whole world, to train to the highest degree of efficiency those whom it evangelizes and to seek to make the spirit of Jesus the absolute rule in all human relations. It is an admitted economic fact that there can be no permanent prosperity without a permanent agriculture. -*r- THE NATION'S DINNER TABLE When tbe dinner bell of this nation rings there have been slaughtered for the repast 13,000 beeves, 21,000 hogs, 4,600 sheep, 2,000 hundredweight ot poultry and other meats,, and there have been 700,000 bushelB of cereals and 540,000,000 pounds of vegetables prepared for the feast. Multiply these quantities by one thousand, repre senting- approximately the number of meals per annum, and we have the annual'cbntents of tbe nation's larder. But with all our immense quantity, superb quality and wide range of pro ducts, the American housewife, like the wife of King Nebuchadnezzar, longs for variety and she goes market ing in foreign lands. Slie buys abroad $200,000,000 per annum of farm pro ducts that can and should be produced In the United States. WOMAN'S SUFFRAGE FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF LEADING FARMERS. Why should women vote? That la the question that 1b ringing from ocean to ocean and reverberating from the Canadian boundary to the Mexi. can border. It is the mission of a newpaper to give the news and tha action of the Texas Farmers' Union in opposing woman's suffrage when that question was recently before tha Texas legislature is significant as representing the attitude of the or ganized plowmen. We reproduce In part the argument presented by Hon W. D. Lewis, president of the Texas Farmers' Union, in opposing the bill: "It Is gratifying to note that it is not the farmer's wife who is clamoring for the ballot. She is too busy trying to make happier homes, mold ing the minds of future citizens an.i sharing with her husband the cares of life to indulge in political gossip, The ballot will give her no relief from drudgery, give no assistance in cloth lng the children or bring to the homQ additional comforts,. conveniences oi opportunities in life. It is, as a rule, the city woman promoted to idleness by prosperity, who is leading the sut fragette movement. "Frpm many standpoints, perhaps a woman has as much right to vots as a man. So has she as much right to plow as a man she has as mucb right to work in a factory as a man she has as much right to shoulder a musket as a man, but we would rathei she would not do so from choice and we regret that necessity ofttimes N0\N TUM W&.

MAL^ THE HOPE PIONEER compels "her to earn a living' by en gaging in gainful occupations. We da not consider misfortune a qualifies tion for suffrage or a business accl dent a reason for granting franchise, We are opposed to woman at th« ballot box the same as we are op posed to woman in the field, in the factory or in the army and for the self-same reasons. We had rathet see her plant flowers than sow wheat gather bouquets than pick cotton and rear children than raise political isi sues, although she may have as much right to do one as the other. Opposed to Unsexlng Humanity. "Sex qualification for suffrage may have its apparent inconsistencies.' No general rule adjusts Itself perfectly to all conditions. It is a favorite ai gument advanced by the proponents o( woman's suffrage that many cultivated and noble women are far more capa ble of intelligently exercising sov erelgnty than a worthless negro, but the South never was anxious foi negro suffrage, and while culture 'and refinement, and even morality, ara desirable virtues, they are not th only qualifications for franchise. "The primary, inherent and insep arable fitness for suffrage Is support lng a family. The plow handle, the forge and the struggle for bread af ford experience necessary to properly mark the ballot. Government is a great big business and civilization from the very beginning assigned woman the home and man the busi ness affairs of life. "There has been much freakish leg islation enacted during the past de cade that no doubt appeals to wdman'g love for the ridiculous, but to under take to unsex the human race by lav/ Is the height of legislative folly and a tragedy to mankind. "We are opposed to the equal rlghta of woman—we want her to ever re main our superior. We considei woman's desire to seek man's level the yellow peril of Twentieth Century civilization. "Woman Is the medium through which angels whisper their messagfea to mankind it Is her hand that plants thoughts In the intellectual vineyard it is through her heart that hope, lova and sympathy overflow and bless man kind. Christ—the liberator of. woman kind—was satisfied to teach the lessons of life and He was a man. He chose to rule over human hearts and re fused worldly power and men followed after Him, women washed His feet, little children climbed upon His knees and the Ruler of the universe said that in Him He was well pleased. Can woman find a higher calling?" THEMISTOCLES When Themistocles waB asked by his host at a dinner party to enter tain the guests by playing the lute, ha replied that he could not play the fiddle, but that he could make a small town a great city. We have In this nation many politicians who-are good "fiddlers," but they cannot make a small town a great city. We are over run with orators who can play upon the passions of the people, but they can't put btick and mortar together. We need builders. Let those who hunger and thirst for power understand that the highest glory of a statesman is to construct, and that It is better for a man that he should build a public highway than that he should become Governor of 'a state, and that he start a plow than that .he become the author of a law. The true test of statesmanship is the plow and the hammer, so let those who would govern, first build. PATIENT FASTED 56 DAYS And Buttermilk "Did Taste Good at the End"—Lost Nearly One Hundred Pounds. Warsaw, Ind.—After establishing a record for continuous fasting, Jim Rob inson asked for a glass of buttermilk and as he slowly swallowed it admit ted that it tasted good. This was the first nourishment taken by Robinson, who is an inmate of the county in firmary, for eight weeks. His long fast was due to lack of appetite and the fact that the taste and smell of food nauseated him. Physicians here declare his case baa no parallel in medical history. Fifty five days was held to be the limit of man's endurance, yet Robinson passed that mark by more than a day and is still alive. During that period he lost nearly one hundred pounds. Except for be ing weakened, his general physical condition was not affected. COTTON NECESSARY IN WAR Enormous Use Is Made of It. Both for Projectiles and Bandages for the Wounded. Cotton statisticians who find difficul ty In accounting for the large exports of the staple to Europe, where a large portion of tbe manufacturing indus try is prostrated, will do. well to in vestigate the use of this raw mate rial for war purposes, according to a writer In the Textile Manufacturers' Journal. They are well aware that unusual quantities of khaki for uni forms, duck for tentB, tarpaulins and artillery covers, tire clotb for auto mobiles, and other woven and knitted fabrics are being demanded by the bel ligerents, but .they are likely to oven look two important uses of cotton that are absorbing hundreds of thousands of bales of the staple. It Is rather startling to learn that It takes a bale ot cotton to shoot one ol the big German 42-centlmeter siege guns, and that a modern dreadnaught In action explodes ten to twelve bales of cotton every minute. Approxi mately a pound of raw cotton is need ed In making every pound of guncot ton, and the powder production of Eu rope and this country Is not far from 350,000,000 pounds annually under present forced conditions/ This ac counts for about 700,000 bales of cot ton, largely linters and waste. Then there Is the enormous demand for absorbent cotton and bandages This probably calls for about 50,000/ 000 pounds of cotton annually, oi about 100,000 bales. In fact, it is quite likely that figures could be deducted to show that the war demand for cot ton is largely counterbalancing the loss of regular demand due to the pros tration of the industry In Germany, Austria, Belgium and France. PUTS BLAME ON PARENTS Writer In Eastern Magazine Criticizes Behavior of the Pupils of the High School. It used to be that the college stu dent was the target of criticism for all manner of excesses no* It is the students of our high schools. Pre sumably the high schools contain our choicest boys and girls, yet every once in a while a principal or local educa tional board has to speak against the way the girls dress or the question able social habits between the two sexes. Principal Jackson of the Lynn (Mass.) English High school, in ad dressing the 1,000 girls and boys un der his care, charged them with "cigarette smoking, immorality and immodesty." Complaints had been made by the school committee of the way things were going, and the princi pal was authorized to make wholesale expulsions unless there was an imme diate improvement in conduct. Smok ing, flirting and Improper conduct gen erally were referred to. Principal Jackson pictured a boy of the school walking down the street between two girls, each dressed like a fashion plate, and he pufllng a cigarette. He told the girls they should considei every puff an Insult. He referred, too, to the Immodest custom of girls call ing up boyB on the telephone and mak ing "dates" for the evening. Yet we marvel at the lack of re finement that pervades our social life today. If this sort of thing continues among our high school students, In the next generation there will be no respect for social conventions, or pos sibly ho conventions to respect. What can mothers be thinking about when they dress their sixteen or seventeen year old daughters like a "fashion plate?" Or what has become of the feminine modesty when young girls, who ought to be spending their eve nings at home with their books, take the initiative and make "dates" with boys? Oh what about the home train ing of the boy who parades the streets with a girl on either side of him, puf fing cigarette smoke Into their faces? It Is about time we got back to some old-fashioned standards for our boys and girls, both In the high schools and the homes.—Leslie's. PASSING OF "BLUE MONDAY." "Blue Monday in the industries of Kokomo is a thing of the past," Bays J. E. Frederick of the Kokomo Steel and Iron company. Kokomo City Is without saloons. "On Monday our fac tories are able to secure the same output as on any other day of the week. This was not the case when saloons were running." OUTLAWED DEBT. The supreme court of Georgia has decided that a liquor debt is not col lectable in that state. a I DtfN'T HE (Conducted by the National Woman's Christian Temperance Union.) WHO IS RESPONSIBLE? Judge- Pollock of North Dakota, pro nouncing sentence upon a man con demned to spend the remainder of his natural life in the" state penitentiary, made a scathing denunciation of the lliquor traffic. The man had murdered his wife while under the Influence of liquor procured across the river in Moorhead, Minn. "i do not know, and under the pres ent state of our law I never want to know," said the Judge, "who sold you the liquor under the influence of which you committed this unnatural crime. Let that man's conscience bring such remorse that its energizing power will never let go, until the largest possible reparation be made. Whoever he was, and wherever he may be at this sad moment whether his place of busi ness Is In the well-adorned and highly decorated room where tempting viands appeal to the taste, where sweiBt music delights the ear and lulls to sleep the reasoning faculties or whether It waB In the lowest, dirtiest, man-abandoned, God-forsaken and death-dealing char nel house of despair, whefe only abides the thoughtless and sullen greed for gain, it mattery not be fore the bar of God, if not of man, he stands alike with you morally re sponsible for this horrible crime. The trouble Is he is not here with you to receive a merited punishment. "If your partner in this offense were here he would plead by way of de fense that he did not 'by fraud, con trive or force' occasion your drunken ness—a plea which would have to be sustained. An enlightened and long suffering public will some day, and that day very soon, rise In the majesty of its power, and demand that the leg islature strike out the words 'by fraud, contrivance or force' and 'for the pur pose of causing him to commit any crime,' and boldly declare that he who In any manner sells Intoxicating liquors to another, under the Influence of which a crime, whether of murder or of some lesser offense la commit ted, is equally guilty as a principal 1q any such crime committed.'" BREAD OR WHISKY? "What shall we now plant, barley oi poison and kill odr citizens, our young mothers and the unborn, or wheat, to igrow bone and brawn and blood and brains and bravery for Britain?" aska tDr. C. W. Saleeby, F. R. S. E., the nob ed English medical authority, in an article in the Daily Chronicle of Man chester, England. He deprecates th« worse than waste In raising barley tc make beer and whisky, and turning food material Into poison. He quotes the words of the czar of Russia to his .minister of finance, "It is not meel that the welfare of the exchequer should be dependent upon the ruin ol the spiritual and productive energies of numbers of my loyal subjects," and urges his fellow-countrymen "in thia epoch-year of 1915" to "plant wheat In stead of whisky bread Instead of beer life instead of death," adding thai "never, perhaps, was there a mora fateful choice for the English nation." WHEN IS A MAN DRUNK? Judicial authority In Topeka has ruled that a man is drunk if a police man can detect the odor of liquor on his breath. If, In addition, he talks and laughs boisterously he is drunk and disorderly and guilty of a breach of the peace. If this standard' were ap* plied to the city of New York It is es timated that 750,000 people would be arrested as drunk and disorderly every day. In Chicago the number would be 400,000 In Philadelphia, 300, 000. The claim of the llquorltes. that Topeka has a high percentage of drunkenness will not hold water—or any other kind of liquid. In this connection It may be noted that Topeka, with a population of 47,• 102, has 29 policemen. The average For 20 American saloon-Infested cities with a population of 43,000 to 49,000 Is 46 policemen. BALOON VS. MODERN BUSINE83. "It isn't the crank who is putting the saloon out of business," remarks the Wichita Beacon. "It's the busi ness man, the railroad man, the bank er, the lawyer, the merchant, the men who have to depend upon someone else for efficiency In the various depart ments Qt the_ Important work and who HOW I RM&K THOUfilhr TO dttT FUM svett A Mice, coou KB.

"They are the men who are getting the goat of the distiller. "The saloon is up against the mod em business age. It Is up against aa enemy that It cannot throttle or buy or browbeat or bluff, and it might aa well save what It can and go out of business." HOME HAS BIG ENDOWMENT Institution That Caree for Naval Vet-j trans Not Worrying Over Keeping Wolf Front the Door. One of the richest and most honor-, able institutions in Philadelphia is one of the least well known. I speak of that eighty-nine-year-old veteran— the United States Naval home. Ninety-nine persons out of one hun dred think this 1B a charitable affair. On the contrary, not only does It sup port Itself, but as a self-supporter it is right up in the Stotesbury-Widener Morgan-Carnegie claps. The naval home has over $14,000, 000 Invested in bonds. It has never cost the government one cent. Of Its income of $420,000 last year, only $77, 000 was expended for maintenance, so you can see that keeping the wolt from the door Is not a strenuous occu pation at those somber-looking build ings at Gray's Ferry. The great $14,000,000 fund was col lected by the turning over of prize money received by sailors and offi cers during our various wars. More over, every officer pays twenty cents a month, and sailors also contribute. General Forney of the Marine corpB told me yeBterday he had paid his twenty cents every month for fifty years. "No difficulty," I suggested to Com mander F. R. Payne, executive officer of the home, "to support your one hun dred or so occupants." "Scarcely," he replied. "We could support all the sailors In all -the naval homes in the United StateB and still not exhaust our yearly Income." Commander Payne was one of those who received prize money during the Spanish-American war for capturing Spanish ships. "Got my check framed as a sou venir," said he, "because our govern ment has by law abolished prize money." In future no sailor In this country will profit financially by the capture, of an enemy's ships. Next to Girard college the Naval home is the most heavily endowed in stitution in Pennsylvania. Were this fund Invested In high-class municipal bonds it might increase its yearly to come by $140,000, or nearly twice the amount required to support all its occupants.—"Girard," In Philadelphia Ledger. WILL DO VALUABLE WORK British Expedition to Chart Waters of the Ocean Is Expected to Achieve Great Results. Even now the waters of the globe are very imperfectly kno.wn, and It is stated that the uncharted rockB, reefs and other dangers to navigation re ported in the Pacific ocean alone num ber more than 3,500. This quite Jus tifies the great work to be undertaken by the International Oceanographic expedition, which has been organised under J. Foster Stackhouse for a voy age of seven years, to chart the seas.' Starting from London in June there will be some surveying In the North1 Atlantic, including a search for the rock alleged to exist near the spot where the Titanic sank, and then four years will he spent In the Pacific, with special attention to the little known coral and volcanic islands. The subsequent work will be chiefly in the Indian ocean and South Atlan tic. The staff of investigators 1b to number twelve men, and Important discoveries in various branches of sci ence may be expected. First Bath In Yeara Fatal. Mandan, N.
