AMERICA’S GREATEST IMM'STIO The proa test industry of this conn try is about starting up. to run for; nine or ten months. ii is on»* in which there arc iu> strikes. Ii do ponds ffpon child labor, tint its finished product is good citizenship. That in dustry is the American school. The American people, whose motto sometimes seems to be "Let George do it.” have a way of turning over the whole responsibility for this great i idealistic and practical enterprise, to teachers and school boards. They kick vehemently if the children are not well educated, yet they never ask If the success of this undertaking docs not depend in large part on home co-operation. Teachers and school hoards who have to contend with parental indif ference, tlnd that their plant turns out only an indifferent, product. The success of school operation can be greatly promoted, and the children can bo prepared for more useful and successful futures, if the homes of Prescott and Nevada county will co operate with school management in these two ways: 1. Urge your children to make their school work their first interest. Do not allow too much of party going, late hours, and other distractions. 2. Pack up school discipline. When the pupils complain they are not fairly treated, hear the teacher’s side before forming an opinion. May riches come to you—if we get a part of them. KIND A BETTER WAY The settlement of the great coal strike assures us that the people will not freeee this winter. For so much we are thankful. But it does not con tain any assurance that the same con ditions will not prevail a year hence, with nil of their attendant ills and inconveniences to the nation. A better way of settling labor dif Acuities should bo found, and flint agency should be the congress and fed eral government. The laborer is forced to pay the same high priees for everything he list's as art' paiil l»y other people, lie therefore is entitled to a wage that will enable hint to live in reasonable comfort, educate his children, and lay by a Miffir enri fot the time when his days of usefulness will be over. The employer is entitled to the same consideration. ms he is reipured to live under the stum* legit priced conditions He should he assured a fair profit on i his investment. The aie.ii army ol consumers, who outnumber these elements mam limes] over, are also entitled to eon ideiaiion I — hut seldom receive it. They are the; treats in every strike that occurs, the victims who in the end pay the penalty without hope of redress There should lie no more strikes, but there should he some method of assuring labor a square deal at the bands of the employing corporations, for \v thouf some sueh protection the laboring man would he crushed and ground to atoms. Arbitration between labor and capl ini is hopeless. That lias been proven in the past Neither side seems willing to recede from its demands, or to no cept a compromise, knowing that any such arrangement simply means a short period of renewed activity and then a return to the merry war. Congress could authorize and the president could appoint commissions in the several lines of industry whose duty it would he to settle all such con troversies with justice to both sides, and at the same time regulate the prices of commodities in order to pro tect the consuming public from pro fiteering. The brain of one man—Judge Lan dis—has revolutionized baseball, be ] cause that brain is fair and just to all. j and from its edicts there is no appeal. And the baseball world has never been so free from trouble as it is today.

When you put on vour thinking cap after the evening meal what is the trend of your thoughts? High prices of everything you use. Itusiness stagnation. Political corruption drafting prohibition agents. Itooze scandals. divorces in high life. Murders and robberies. These are a few of the multitudin ous thoughts that flit through the aver ige mind, with their long trail of dis satisfaction and disgust. Try a change of thought for a few ‘veuings—something along these lines: Is the home life what if should be? Is the proper amount of care and ■supervision being exercised over the growing children? Are the best efforts being put forth for the improvement of conditions in Ihe home community? Does the spirit of amity and unity prevail among the business interests if our town? Are you a booster of the home town, if are you a critic? Thoughts often come unhidden, bur it is not difficult to divert them to ‘ertain lines if one so desires.

TEXT—If there come any unto you anti brixiK not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: for he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. II John 10, 11. "Let not your house be made a basis of operations against Christ. So says an old vrlter, witli our ext in mind. “But,” it may ie asked, “are we ci be so narrow hat we cannot jive an ordinary greeting of cour esy to son me vh«. differ.' oith is about some mint of doctrine, ind cannot en ertain such in a ;oeinl way?” This eads us to set forth what we believe the text incul cates. First of all. it i.- evident that it Is a matter of false teaching which Is here involved. It Is important to note this in a day when it is supposed to make uo difference as to what e believe. For while John is very insistent on right conduct, he is none the less in sistent on right belief. He knew, as all should realize, that errors as to "doctrine” produce errors as to life. False Liberality. Again, the expression, "bring not this doctrine.” point-, out tlie person as a teacher, not a mere traveler seeking hospitality. i»r. James Cul ross, an excellent interpreter of John’s writings, well says: "The charge which John give- i-- an antidote to that so-called 'liberality’ to which truth anti falsehood are alike, which generally ends In luiting truth with a murderous hatred. V, hatever may be done from Christian compassion or kindness, let it be done without hesita tion or fear; but let ''it be done as compassion or kindness—in the spirit i of the good Samaritan. John finds uo fault with it. and throws no hindrance in Its way. But keep the distinction i clear between doing a deed of Chrls tian beneficence anil giving help to anti-Christian error." The false teacher 1® not only to be refused hospitality, but lie is not to be bidden God speed, or as the Revised Version puts it, we are to “give him no greeting." John's language would not necessarily preclude an ordinary greet ing of courtesy, but it Involves sym pathy and approval, so as to make one a partaker of the evil deeds of the teacher. Such fraternal Intercourse Is distinctly prohibited. We must he careful not to assume this exclusive attitude towards men who may differ with us as to some non-essential point of doctrine, for In such matters there is room for large charity in the church. John has in mind more especially the teachers of that day who denied that “Jesus Christ is come in the flesh.” As to such u point, involving the full Deity and true manhood of our Lord, we must be altogether uncompromising. The Incarnation the Center. On tins very matter of the Incarna tion, l’rotessor Orr has said: "Many tendencies are at present In operation to weaken this doctrine—speculative and evolutionary theories, doctrines of 41 vine immanence, and pantheistic BILL SAM’S DICTIONARY .
