Fifth Avenue and Calvary Baptist
churches, New York, two of the largest
and best known congregations "among
American Baptists, have just aeciaeu
to end a temporary merger. The first

named is the one made famous by tho
long pastorate of Rev. Dr. Robert S.
MacArthur. One is located in the
Fifth avenue district, aB lts name lm"

the well known thoroughfare, and tho
other Is in the Carnegie hall residence

nine months ago, and Rev. Dr. Corne

served both congregations. Calvary
having been without a minister for two
cars or more. The union attracted
national attention at the time.
It is understood that reasons lead
ing to the ending of the experiment,
and the going back to old conditions
were three. One was pressure from
Baptists of the country, who plainly
told New York Baptists they have no
right to Jeopardise national influence
and Baptist home missions by sacri
fices in the chief city, merely because
it might cost them leas money and be
less local trouble. Another reason giv
en is that not the chance for affiliated
rhapels appeared to be possible, to the
extent expected, and the Fifth avenue
people, whose plan the local extension
one was. decided they could accomplish
more alone. And the third reason giv
en is that not a few members of Cal
vary quit when the Fifth avenue people

united congregations proved to be no
larger than individual ones had been.
It is now stated that at the end of the
year the Fifth Avenue church will be
reopened, and it is rumored the Rock
efellers may make possible considera
ble extension of Its plant and work.
The great interoceanlc canal ports
prove extremely valuable as centers for
world bible distribution. The British
and Foreign Bible society, of London,
maintains at Port Said a distributing
agency whose influence extends to ev
er country. A short time ago the same
society, long in charge of bible work In
Central America and Panama, trans
ferred this field to the American Bible
society, together with its agent there.
This agent, upon invitation of the
British society, went to Port Said and
studied methods there. He has now
returned, and Is preparing plans for a
similar work at Panama. The Ameri
can society already has a general agent
for Central America, and a special one
for the 'sthmus.
It is now announced that a building
will be erected as soon as its character
and location can be determined upon,

distributing poinf for Central America.
It will also be made a depository, of
bibles and testaments in many tongues,
so that sailors of nations speaking
many languages will be provided with
the scriptures.

Dr. John R. Mott, just back from
Europe, reports finding the continua

man, gone all to pieces. It is a for
eign mission agency, with members in
Germany and Austria as well as
France, England and America.
Some big plans of 34 Protestant mis
sionary societies, made in connection
with the Panama Pacific exposition,
have fallen through disastrously. These
plans contemplated the expenditure of
$25,000 through the missionary educa
tion movement. Barely $10,000 of it
was secured, and at a meeting of com
mittees just held 17 of the societies
quit altogether. Only three positively
remained, with a fourth, the Disciples
of Christ, remaining in provisionally.
The three are the Presbyterian, the
Methodist and the Protestant Episco
pal. The education movement declined '

barely raise $1000. Reasons given for
the double failure to finance the plans
are the facts that many missionary so

THE church's grand task is to help men and women in their thinking, and
thus to help men to be politicians. She has to help by inspiration, and then
leave the inspiration to be worked out as the individual deems best. Rev.
Miles Hanson, of the First Congregational church.
Have we need of Jesus? Yes, for without such an example, such an ideal, no
man can reach his best. We need and must have an ideal outside and beyond
self to inspire and lift us up, and a conscious experience of comradeship with
Jesus' is the inspiration and lifting power. Rev. C. Wesley Webdell, of Trinity
Methodist church.
The unpardonable sin is the constant, continual and final rejection of the Holy
spirit's conviction of Jesus Christ as a personal savior. Many are in danger of
committing this sin. The Holy spirit may be resisted for the last time. Rev.
Charles Mendell, "The Boy Evangelist," East El Paso Presbyterian church.
It is said of two blind men that they took advantage of the fact that Jesus
of Nazareth was passing by, and in response to their earnest appeal they received
his healing touch. "Jesus of Nazareth passeth by" many that arc spiritually
blind and should know that he is ready to open their eyes, too, if they will only
"cry unto him in faith." Rev. Kenneth Brown, of East El Paso Presbyterian
History, both sacred and secular, emphasizes the fact that great movements
never begin with a multitude, but with a few; often with a single man or woman
who has caught a vision of better things and with a blazing heart has gone forth
to make the vision a reality. Rev. W. R. Evans, of Highland Park Methodist

not have sinned when he was tempted; but orthodox thinkers today are agreed

Being loyal to one's convictions of right is the best way possible to come to
know the truth. If no one else will volunteer to guide such an one, Divine
Providence will undertake the work. Rev. J. H. Allen, of Austin Park Christian

Just now the cry In England is

Concluding that the first illeffects
of the war have been discounted, Jews
of America are putting forward two
plans. In both conservative. Orthodox
and reform Judaism are uniting as
they have never before cooperated
since there were Jews In America. The
two campaigns are the relief of condi

former, and political in the latter. To
some extent Jews hope to include those

As. never heretofore, and because of
the war, religious bodies are cooper

never before known. Unity plans are
at a standstill, and are to remain so
until the war is over, yet unity itself
is here. There is interchange of views
between leaders to an extent hardly
realized by those unfamiliar with con

New York, Jan. 9. The warm, spa
clous corridors of New York's old fed
eral building; better known as the
general postofflce, has presented a
strange spectacle during the last few
weeks, between the hours of 3 and 4
ociock in the morning. A lively free
employment exchange has been estab
lished there by hundreds of jobless,
homeless men, whose struggle for ex
istence has stimulated their Ingenuity
and sharpened their wits. Soon after
tne nrst edition of the morning papers
appear the "exchange" opens its doors.
There is no registration, no charge,
no rules and regulations. Yet every
thing goes on smoothly by common
consent and the ethics of the "down
and out" fraternity, which is said to
have more members in Gotham this
winter than ever before.
They troop in, these patrons of the
"exchange" singly. In pairs and in
groups. They gather round the radi

Through the swiftly passing years of our remaining but fading strength, let
us so live and labor that our home song may grow sweeter and sweeter toward
the evening hour, until at last it becomes a celestial song upon the wings of
which our spirits may soar away to our new our heavenly home. Rev. John E.
Abbott, of Westminster Presbyterian church.
"That you may be blameless and harmless, sons of God, without rebuke," is
Paul's exhortation to the Phillippians, and how important it is that those who
call themselves Christians should order their lives in such a pure and blameless
way as to disarm the criticism of unbelievers. Rev. Charles L. Overstreet, of
the First Presbyterian church. t
Jesus laid claim, and justly, to all authority in heaven and upon earth. The
devils acknowledged that claim; only men call it in question. The noted authority
in the home is not dominant as it was in the olden time, nor in society, nor in
the nation. The war in Europe is an indication that men and not God have
taken the reins of authority into their hands. But in his time these warring
nations will see his rightful authority revert to him. Then will they recognize
as a true principle of all government not the divine right of kings but the divine
right of the King. Rev. J. F. Williams, D.D., of First Baptist church.

New York. Jan. 9. New York has
been startled by the intimation that
its new $6,250,000 postofflce Is too
small and that it may be necessary
to erect an annex costing $1,000,000 to
care for the city's mail. The new
postoffice occupies two full city blocks
and is one of the most beautiful build
ings in tho city. It was opened last
September and now the railway mall
service says it has less than half the
platform room it needs, and others in
touch with its work say it needs five
or six times as many Square feet to
work in. The prospect of a million
dollar, building for the overflow from
the new postoffice has been discussed
with so much secrecy that few knew
what was on foot until a rumor from
Washington told of the controversy
mere over tne matter.
At least five sites have been offered,
and unless the postmaster general ve
toes the project a contract will be
made within a few weeks to put up a
million dollar annex to the J6,26000U
palace. At present there is a limit of
from $90,000 to $100,000 a year which
the postoffice department may pay as
rent for such an annex. Some of those
who have submitted offers think that
it would be impossible to get any one
to put up an annex and lease it for
the rental. It is said that to erect
