Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and He only can save the j world from its sin and transfigure it j with beauty and goodness and glory. | The new age will be a blessed age. only as He blesses it. We have per- 1 ceived the folly of what the world j calls wisdom and we are looking for j The old age has dinned into our | ears: | "Blessed are the mighty, Blessed are the rich, Blessed are they that succeed." and that age lies crumbled in dust at our feet. We shall make the new age a blessed age only as we heed the words of our Lord: "Blessed are the meek, Blessed are the merciful, Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness." With the readjustment of political and cionomic conditions there must also be a readjustment of our ideals and a revolution of spiritual things, Christ's ideal of pre-eminence is serv guidance unto God. 1 ice and His ideal of leadership is typified by a child. The disciples came unto Jesus and said: "Who is greatest?" and Jesus called a little child unto him and said whosoever shall humble himself like this little child is greatest. How strange! How puzzling! How disconcerting to have a little child called into the midst of their disputes, to teach them the ele incuts of mastery! I wonder if we are ready to receive that teaching today? What would you think of seating a child yonder in the midst off that company of notables about the Peace Table at Versailles ? Suppose we should gath er together a representation of the leading men of Moscow—merchants. lawyers, doctors, preachers, univer sity professors, bankers, laborers— and a little child should be set in our midst to rebuke our ambitions, plans and schemes of leadership and posi tion, how would we take it? By the estimates of Jesus, greater than the leadership of intellect and power which we are accustomed to respect the leadership typified by the child ; IS mu iff; ÏÊ US Am A m m iiaiif Ml k .Vi om—i ip yc > ii teil mm 3 Il l ifcl ® 1 a ii I Y OU can't help cutting loose joy'us remarks every time you flush your smokespot with Prince Albert—it hits HI you so fair and square.

Reynolds Tobacco Co. ;1 K V m iü *$6 wm which we would at once pronounce impractical if not absolutely impos sible and absurd. What is greatness? Who are the great? Emerson has written of the world's great men—"Representative men," he calls them—Plato, Seveden borg, Montaigne, Shakespeare, Na poleon, and Goethe. Carlyle has given us another list of heroes—Mohammed, Dante, Luther, Knox, Cromwell, Rous seau and Robert Burns. They are men of genius and great accomplish ments. But are these the things that make men great? If we had a cata log of the world's great whom Jesus should name, some of these heroes would not be among them, most part they would be names un known, to us, for genius and success are not exalted in the New Testa ment nor are they commended to us for example or for praise, Instead of the stories which our old success-loving age loved to tell its boys of how plow-boys may become presidents, and how street urchins may become millionaires, the new age will tell its sons stories that glory in self-sacrifice, altruistic service, vicarious burden-bearing and forgiv ing love. It was such stories that Jesus of Nazareth delighted to relate. The story of the Good Samaritan re lates the glory of piercy. The story of the Prodigal Son relates the glory of forgiveness. The story of the Widow's Mite relates the glory of humble consecration and sacrifice. There is a tremendously practical For the lesson here. The new leadership must be great according to the standards of Christ. We can learn much from the lives of great men but so often we mistake their real elements of" greatness. A great life like that of Phillips Brooks offers us much for insiration and emulation. But the' greatness of Brooks was not in his eloquence and his power to charm the multitudes by his speech. The great ness of Brooks was his simplicity of heart, his fellowship with Christ, his earnestness in service. The greatness of Theodore Roosevelt was not his ..olicical sagacity, but it was his pas sion for righteousness, and his in sis:ence upon "the square deal." There is a great simplicity in life's foundations. I think that is what the Master meant to teach when he spoke of the little child as an example. He would teach men the simple virtues of trust and affection, dépendance and gentlenesss, simple-mindedness and open-heartedness. If we should exer cise toward each other the same spirit of affectionate care and service, the same snirit of kindness and helpful -1 ness, which we show toward little children—then all the rivalries and strategems and hatreds which dis figure modern society, would quicl^y pass away. "A little child shall lead them," said Except the old prophet of Israel, ye be converted and become as little children ye cannot enter the King dom of Heaven. Whosoever, there fore, shall humble himself and be come as this little child is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven," said Jesus. The child is lowly and modest, and makes no claims, and lives by in stinctive confidence and does not care about preferments and honors. He is not puffed up by the virtues he pos sesses. Simplicity, modesty and hu mility are the marks of greatness in the sight of God. The simple virtues of truth and goodness are more to be esteemed than fame and power The redemption of humanity will not come about by any new scheme evolved at the Peace Conference. It will come about through those simple elements of moral perfection which Christ has revealed to men. We will not come to the Golden Age until we usher in the Kingdom of our Lord. The world's measurements of leader ship and greatness have been wrong and false. They have provoked en vies and stirred up strife among men and among nations. Christ's measure ments of leadership and greatness alone can bring us happiness and progress. In place of the leadership that can demonstrate what brute force can effect, leadership in the new age must be able to reveal to us the power of goodness. In place of the leadership that has told us what genius and cleverness and wealth could do, the new leadership must demonstrate by deeds of consecration the power of goodness, patience, kind ness and love. "Whosoever shall humble himself as a little child, the same is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven." —Rev. WAYNE S. SNODDY. BRUSSELS, Jan.—Thus far it has been impossible to estimate the ex tent of damage caused in Belgium by the Germans oc to fix, even ap proximately, the amount of indemnity which Belgium will demand from Ger many. In the majority of the factories which the Belgians were allowed to operate during German occupation, tne niant remains, but everywhere all stocks of raw materia® have been en tirely removed. In the other factories, which the Belgians were not allowed to operate, there was a systematic removal of all the macninery which was dismantled which they did not take away and removed all material of which thev and sent to Germany. The names of the German manufacturers to whom the machinery was shipped: have been ascertained. Belgian industriel circles seem to be divided whether to attempt to re cover the stolen machinery from Ger many, now necessarily worn,, or to buy new machines abroad and to'make the Germans pay for it. The Belgian coal fields fa the re gions of Mons, Charleroi and Liege were operated by the Germans who used Belgian coal as currency to ob tain from Holland provisions, cattle and horses. Thus, while the- Belgian population suffered from cold, coal rose in price to 400 or 500 francs a ton and Belgians witnessed the spec tacle of workmen weakened by pri vation forced to draw heavy carts loaded with coal, taking the place of the horses which the Germans had stolen. The industrial region of Charleroi suffered severely at the hands of the Germans who destroyed the machines BUTTERFIELD-ELDER IMPLEMENT GO., LTD ■I MOSCOW, IDAHO Our reputation for fair dealing and reliable goods, coupled with the De Laval record of service and durability, has made the De Laval Cream Separator the leader in this community.
