Sentence Sermons by THE mether love is the nearest thing in this world to the love of God, and it is impossible to pat a money valuation on either. Eev. W. C. Baber, of the Altura Presbyterian church. Ian McClaren said: "It would bankrupt a man to attempt to repay the love of a good mother." Most good men, men who have succeeded and have been a blessing to the world, give all the praise and glory to the blessed influence of a Christian mother. Her. C. Wesley Webdell, of Trinity Methodist chnrch. Jehovah is not only the strength of his people, bnt he is also their song; religion is not only the power, bnt the poetry of life. Eev. John E. Abbott, of the Westminster Presbyterian chnrch. Home is where mother is; she is the head and qneen of the home. Rev. Chas. L. Overstreet, cf the First Presbyterian chnrch. The sweetest and tenderest memories of life cluster around mother. The strongest and most abiding influences have come from her. If she is living she deserves the very best that we can bestow in affection and deeds and words. If she has passed away, her memory should be cherished reverently, tenderly and gratefully. Eev. Wallace R. Evans, of Highland Park Methodist church. The word "Mother" has more sacred associations connected with it and awakens a readier response in all our lives than any other word in the English language. Eev. Perry J. Rice, of the First Christian chnrch. Christianity is net a material entity, 'but belongs to the realms of the spirit ual We speak of the Christian religion in terms of momentary significance in stead of being cognizant of its eternal terms, which are for all ages. Rev. Arthur C Harris, of the EngKsh Lutheran church. There is tremendous responsibility resting upon every parent In assuming that responsibility every parent should become a devout Christian. Eev. Herman G Porter, of the First Methodist Episcopal church. Pray, for yourself and others need God's assistance and blessing. Pray, for b faith in Christ Jesus, you are a child of the Father in heaven. Prav for tem poral gifts, bat above all for the best gift, the holy spirit Rev. Paul G. Birk mann, of the Evangelical Lutheran church. The doctrine of the deity of Jesus needs no defense. As a rule the preacher .s justified in declaring it without even the suggestion of defense. Some one once said to a great anti-slavery advocate: "Let us hear the other side of the -'avery question." He immediately answered: "There is no other side to the question " With unassailable precision it may be said of the deity of Christ: There is so other side to the question thsn the Bible side. "On Chnat the solid tc k t stand. All other ground is sinking sand." Rev. J. F. Williams, D. D, of the I" lr Bantist church. Hear, 0 boaster, you are nothing without God. In him you live and move and have your being You cannot breath without him. Rev. Henry Easter of the church of St Clement "It is not the woman, whose person is adorned with costly jewels, who is the most attractive; bet the one whose character is adorned with the Christian graces Rev. J. H. Allen, of Austin Park Christian church. Faith in God's word is tie foundation. of the Christian religion. Man may believe or not believe other books and his eternal welfare not be affected, but "what think ye of Christ?" settles the question with all. It is not enough to merely beheve that God is exists but that he is a rewarder of them that dili gently seek him. Faith must express itself Rev J. W. Dunn of the Church of Christ The .deepest, the purest, the sweetest love God has planted within the heart of human being is the love of a true Christian mother for her children. Rev. Ei L. Millican, of the East El Paso Baptist church. Postlude There will -be no Epworth league service at "M as the rally at 1p.m. will include the league and regular church service.

By Eev. W. C. BABER, Pastor of the Altura Part Presbyterian Chareh. , Phllipplans. 4ll3 "I can do all things throuicb Christ, which srrength eneth roe." FAITH Is -the biggest factor in the accomplishment of things In the world. There must be faith to .make the effort and faith to carry it Faith like any other force must be understood to be used. Men use steam or electricity because they under stand the laws governing these mighty powers. So faith has its laws. Its methods of procedure, which one would do well to understand before putting Into effect this great psychic power. Hare Faith in Self. There is faith in one's self Napo leon followed a "star of 'destiny " He believed in Napoleon. He made and unmade kings. He overturned the es tablished political order in Europe. Had his faith been of a purer quality, had he also believed more in Gsd, and tried to impress Justice and right upon the world instead of impressing Na poleon's will upon the world, perhaps his star of destiny would not have set In blood on the fateful field of Water loo. KtllL one must feel that he mav be at least a channel through which ! life may flow, a wire conducting power I for the benefit of his fellows. Joan of Are Had Faith. The "heavenly voices" inspired the "Maid of Orleans." France was to be delivered from her enemies by the hand of a woman. Joan was that woman. When her work was done she was to retire to the simple village life. She delivered France, but obeyed the King and remained after she felt her ject will be, "The Cross and Mother hood," and in the evening at 7:30. "Tribute to Mother," a brief meditation.

A great faith may thus transform a simple country maid into a patriot and a. deliverer of her unhappy country. Paul had every element of greatness inherent in himself, but he became only truly great when he forgot self'to be come merely the instrument of God to his fellow man rani's Falih Vbldlng. Real faith is not fed on trifles. The cause must inspire faith. The thing to be done must be worthy to call out a big heroic faith. Paul's faith did not remove the "thorn in the flesh." It did not -cure him of the sore eyes, he was compelled to employ an amanuensis. It did not protect him from the cold, he sent to Troas and bad his cloalc brought clear across Eu rope along with his books. It did not spare him from tortures in the lion's den, cruel beatings in the jails, ship wreck at sea. and final death at the end of painful labors. Yet it was a faith that became dy namite, destroying the social order of his day. ana iounaing a rxner 10 the after centuries.

His mission was worthy and his faith mounted on eagles' wings to his triumph. Alas, that men in our time should call out all the- superb forces of the spirit to conquer a stomachache, that faith should have no higher aim than a little selfish ease of pain. No great faith or deed grows in such a Ldlliput land, nor can It in confines, so narrow God's Faith Vitalizes 31nn. A wire is alive because of the car rent. A man may accomplish because it is God working through him. The strengethenlng of Jesus made Paul Invincible despite his Infirmities. So will God strengthen every man who works in harmony with His will. No petty trifler, no selfish sinner satiate with pleasure, no sarcastic, sneering "superior" hypocrite, no butterfly buz zing around the lights of danger, can aspire to a great faith. It is born In a heart that breaks because of the woes of men, a heart burdened for all lost and ruined men, a heart touched with a feeling of man kind's maladies on the one hand and a heart panting as the heart for the waterbrooks to know and do the win of God on the other From such travail is born a great faith- No paltry "poise" in that. A faith dynamic, a faith volcanic, a faith that burns and fuses anl fires, a faith that puts God and man In ac tion, tearing down the strongholds of sin and building the kingdom of right eousness: such is great, such a faith is worthy of one who Is a eh lid of the lord of lords and kings of kings. : SCRIPTURE. ? .- John Stl-io. And the third day there was a mar riage in Cana of Galilee, and the moth er of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus said unto htm. The? have no wine. Jesus salih unto her. Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour Is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants. Whatsoever he saith unto you. do It. And there were set there six water pots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece Jesus saith unto them. Fill the water pots with water. And, they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them. Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare It When the ruler of the feast had last-, ed the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the ser vants which drew the water knew:) the governor of the feast called tbe bride groom.

Snn-mer con ference managers are elaborating their programs, and are fitting up rooms in ways supposed to please ministerial minds and tastes. An unusual number of religious bodies and orgVnlaations are to hold their meetings in Los Angeles add San Francisco. Unprecedented numbers plan to take them in. to visit tbe exposition, and to remain on the coast for vaca tions. Alaska bookings are already full to July. Railroads are fitting up sleeping cars long unused. Cities through which ministers pass to and from the coast, and to and from re sorts, are slanning religious confer ences, and chnrches in numbers and with famous men such as they never before afforded, are booking pulpit sup plies for summer Sundays.

SPIBIT IS RB.NKWHD DURING W H Keen obsenttrs in Protestant affairs declare that there is a renewal of the denominational spirit among churches that is most sorprisinx to them. They say that the war having set people to thinking of religion, there ia renewed strength and confidence by leaders Feeling it these leaders are talking their own interests more than ever Presb tertana. Methodists. aBptists. Lu therans and Episcopalians report that recent gatherings have strongly em phasised this exclusivecess as they have not done Jn years. Asked the reason for "Viis change other than an effect of the vy, infor mation is gained that it is a reaction from the laymen's missionary and men and religion movements, which brought members of Protestant bodies together as they had not been brought together (heretofore. It also brings the infor mation that in the judgment of many of these leaders these movements failed to increase receipts for world missions In any marked degree and In the other failed to bring into the churches the 300.00 men it proclaimed its purpose to do. Now religious bodies are in clined to handle their own affairs. Closely allied with this change is an other one of the larger influence of the ministers over the various brother hoods A few members of the latter uv that the usefulness of their ven tures is curtailed, and that in thou sands of cases their societies re hardly more than staad-arounds at the niMmir or ordained men. Thev start ed out to use the laymen It is openly charged in many quarters that they have failed to use them for the reason given. It seems to be the features of the moment that lines of religious bodies are more sharply drawn than in years, and that the ministerial author ity is more largely in evidence.
