Just as the great prairie fire can wreak no further havoc on the spot that has already been burned over, so the penalty for sin has once been visited on Christ. He is the great burned .spot of humanity, and no harm can come to the one who rests on him. Rev. John E. Abbott, of Westminster Presbyterian church. ... A virile religious life is never produced by-hand-me-down, ready-to-wear theologies. It is the .result .rather of- independent personal convictions wrought into the soul by thought and experience. Rev. Perry J. Rice, of First Christian church. The fact that a great crowd of people will assemble here to witness the Johnson-Willard fight is no evidence that the thing is right. Crowds go wrong as well as individuals. Rev. J. H. Allen of Austin Park Christian church.

If you would live a consistent j Christian life, there are three things essential: praying, reading God's word, attending his services. Rev. Ed. L. Millican of East El Paso Baptist church. The money-loving and pleasure-loving spirits are doing much to make the command with reference to the Lord's day a dead letter. It will be a sad day for this nation if it ever should come when we shall have practically.no longer one day of rest and worship in seven. Let those who love the day do all in their power by teaching and example to keep it holy. By our presence in God's house during the hours of worship, sacred meditation in our homes and by refraining from all secular activity on the day, wo may make it a blessing to ourselves and E.Pers- "Dfly of a11 th ek the best emblem of eternal rest."

HENRY EASTER, Rector of the Church of St. Clement. l'snlnifi 20:2: "Examine me. Oh Lord, nod prore mei try my heart and my mind." i THE season of Lent is again with us and challenges us to make use of its opportunities. What we mak of these will depend largely upon our realization of our own needs. "Know thyself!" is the first challenge. "Get down under that outer shell, put your very soul on trial, ex amine rigorously its motives, and weigh these as they find expression in action. Find on the drift of your life, ... .. .... ... . i and set to work diligently to correct any evil tendencies." These things take time; they are not done in a moment; they call, moreover, for .'the utmost courage of one's convictions. A man attempting to pull his own tooth lets go as soon as it hurts. It is much the same with a man probing deep into his own character. , Each Cose Individual. The needs found out, the application of the remedy is a matter for a man's own conscience. What fits one case may by- no means apply to another. The church asks simply for "such a meas ure of abstinence as is more especially suited to extraordinary acts and exer cises of devotion." This abstinence may be from food, from sleep, from business, from pleasure, from anything that may be made to yield a little more time for the higher things of self, and for God's service. Abstinence is never an end in itself but a means to an end. A brother clergyman lias taken i tne words extraordinary acts or ae Into Life," and the program of music will be as follows: The organ.

Attend Lenten Service Many people ordinarily attend church once or twice a month; If they should attend every Sunday during Lent six I M"es in all-they would be practicing oTtrnnril niipv nrt Mil Trorcisei nf de- extraordinary acts and exercises of de votion. Some attend church every Sun day morning; to them an attendance of a second service would be extra ordinary. By far the larger portion of the congregation never attend the Lenten week-day services at ail. Here is an extraordinary opportunity. One or more of these services may be selected and attended regularly to the very ma terial increase of one's devotional ex perience. While these things may seem of very little importance in the way of keeping Lent, it must be admitted that they would be something to those who have never kept Lent in any way."

It was the master who, stressing communion with himself, the source of all strength, said: "Except ye eat the flesh of the son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you."

The Haphazard Way.- In the face of these things, and of the woriap expenenco in them, we go in our Imp-hazard way trusting that somehow or other the spiritual life will look after itself. It can never be. As talking about, or whistling for citizenship in God's kingdom can never take the place of naturalization (bap- tismj, so tneorizing or dreaming aDout the duties of citizenship .-can never make up fOr want of obedience to his commands. If, during this. Lent, the measure of our abstinence do no more than make us think of these things, it will not have been exercised in vain. We never know what Lent may be our last; so that as we enter upon the observance of this one, wo should thank God that the day of our probation has been lengthened, and that we are given an other opportunity to call to mind and correct our shortcomings, and to bring ourselves more nearly to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ One Cent a Loaf More , Will Cost New Yorkers $16,500,000 Additional New York, Feb. 13.

England Has Her Own Monroe Doctrine Says Eminent Geographer London, Eng., Feb. 13. Dr. Vaughn .Cornish, an eminent geographer who has been making a special study of the historical and physical geographj- of the present war, points out that. like the United States, Great Britain has a "Monroe Doctrine." 'The power of Great Britain in the world." he says, "depends on her being mistress of the Atlantic communica tions of western Europe. Britain's "Monroe Doctrine," therefore, means that the acquisition of territory by other nations on the coasts or islands of western Europe would be casus belli. Norway, which has lottg since ceased to be a, groat powei, has fine harbors within 300 miles of Scotland. .and a power acquiring these would be able to turn our position on the north: "The harbors of Portugal and her island. Maderia. Cape' Verde and the Azores are important positions on our toutes td"Egypt. South Africa and the Caribbean.

Of the numbers of these pitiful cases, the majority are not bad women, al- f. though when a woman gats in a plight of. this kind the world's quick condem . nation Is usually given heir. Too many f cases come from a gTrFs ignorance and trustfulness. Because she lores the man, she. believes him implicitly. Then, betrayed, facing impending mother hood, under the cloud of shame, dis grace, cast off by her family If she hrs one, shunned by her friends, to whom may the glri turn in this crisis of her life?

In every rescue home is a maternity room equipped as in a modern hos pital. In' the rescue home, not only Is the unfortunate unmarried mother given- a temporary haven, where she may bring forth her child surrounded by sympathetic care, instead of scorn, but the home stands as a place where she may stay until she has regained her strength enough to go out into the world again to earn her liviitg by work. Mother nnd Ilnbc Not Scpnrated. In the usual county hospitals the mothers are dismissed from the institu tions within two weeks and the baby Is usually given out immediately for .,in rrv, c.ir.ti.. " KonTeshaVe found from long experi! ence that the separating of the moth- ers from their. babies is not wise. So, unless there is some verv exceptional clrumstance onnected with the case the mother is. required to stay at the home with the baby until after the babv Is weaned. Then the rescue home will care for the baby while she goes out to work. If she is able she pays some small sum for the baby's care, until she is able to dp this the baby is cared for withbut. charge. , If the mother only works by the day, she may sleep at the home at night with the baby, or If she has some do mestic employment, where she remains at night, she may visit the baby at the home as often as she desires. In this way the mother and the baby are kept together. T(o Pathetic Cunra.

SEVEIIB SBTHACKS FOR DUTCH REFORMED CHIRCIT. The Reformed churchy the Dutch, not the German body of thesname, has suf fered terrible setbacks in New Tork city within the past year. It was tho church founded by the Dutch who set tled New Amsterdam, now New York, and with the more famous Trinity Episcopal, shared In bequests of Man hattan real estate in early times, and its collegiate church is the second wealthiest religious corporation in America. Apart from its strength in and around New York and the Hudson river towns, the Reformed church is most numerous in Michigan, among the Dutch settlements there. Three large New York Reformed churches, two of them among the oili est in the city next to the Colleginte churches, and all of them large and wealthy in invested properties, have been sacrificed. One went out of exis tencealtogelher, and the other two be came Presbyterian through purchase ot church properties. Two unusual phases of the incidents obtain. One is trnt Reformed church leaders seem to. cai . little for the losses. The other is tli.it there is no trend whatever among Re formed church people toward mersijr with the Presbyterian church. Holding practically the same confession, uiwi exactly the same form of government. there is in New York at least a stroncre. trend among Reformed church peopi" toward the Episcopal than the Presby terian church, and in some respe. s closer cooperation. Two unsuccessful attempts at merger with Presbyterian churches have come to sad disappoint ment. The sacrificed Reformed churches were the Bloomingdale. the old Soitli and the Madison avenue, representing $2,500,000, much of which was sac-.-ficed and lost to the Reformed churc-L Bad business management brought 1 1 an end to two of them with a loss of $400,000, and the third died of lack of interest on the part of its own mem bers, although it occupies one of the best locations in the city, and o-rn' a one of the largest and best equippc i plants. ART SUPPLIES FOR CHURCH IlOUIKS SIFFER FROM W VR. Now it is ecclesiastical art supplies, present and for many years ia the fu ture, that reports a dismal outlook be cause of the war in Europe. Ameri can handlers of art products. chu-e'.L ana all otner Kinas. say it will take a generation, perhaps two of them, for .-. t to get back to the normal condition .s it was six months ao or before the war. Not yet has the supply in tM country suffered to anything like wh -t it willnffer within a year, whether tne war ends or not. Artists are born not made, say t-a dPalera, and they will come on in num bers as soon as peace is assured. Put skilled reproducers xf art; in orer Th.' it may become popular, are more dif ' cult to provide. In Germany and F'jn e these printers and other art reproduee-s and- engravers go usually by famili -s. Fathers teach sons. Sometimes it hap pens that sons do not marry and secrt t die with them. Secrefs that have af fected the entire art world, church art included, have often been lost, and nee rediscovered. Now many artists are oa battle fields and many secrets ir.a;. never be given the world. Art dealers say that practicallv all of these artirans are at the front, if any are dead. Art work is at a standstill and stocks in America are running !ov New stocks nobody can guess r-bcr they r.re to come from. America h.nj artists in numbers, and some repro ducers, but nine in'ten of the spe,nl processes "are know and handled onlv abroad," anL in the warring countries. Even if. the war end tomorrow, it is declared the church art outlook, save for the common kinds, is dark indeed. I respectable families. Both had given their love with blind trustfulness and both had been betrayed. One of the girls in her desperation, with all hi r friends turned against her, sought out the Salvation army. By them she was sent to a "rescue home" In San Anto nio. Agreeing to the conditions thnt she must keep her baby, she remained in the home after the birth of the bab. Later she obtained work where she could hr.ve her child with her. Recent ly she has married and very happil: . her husbar-d locally adopting the by as his own child. The other girl, realising the sha-re and disgrace of her situation, left h r home. She found a room in which she hid herself. Her small funds ran low . She did not have enoush food and be came -weak and emaciated and when on the verge of suicide she was found by a oig hearted El Paso woman. This woman called In the help of tho Salvation army and they persuaded the girl to go to the Salvation army's rev ru home in San Antonio. This gnl would not agree to the condition im- !

To Set Erring Ones RlgbL Through cases such as these the Pa' vat' army has learned the wisdom of kci p.ng the mother and baby from beii'i-' separated. While the shelter of the rescue home is open to every girl a: d woman in need, its work is more for the help of girls such as these cases, to make their first stumble their last an ! to set them up on their feet again with renewed strength, rather than for t - care of those whose fjrst stumnlea have been followed by others, all leid ln; further and further down until tin v become hardened. However, een rm these, the rescue home offers a door of hope for those who have sicken."! of a life of shame and want a tit w chance to begin again.
