BISHOP INGLEY'S
VISIT TO MEEKER
It is much too iufrequeut that Meek
er. Isolated ns it is, is fortunate en
ough to receive visits from the out
standing men of the State. It Is im
portant then that when these distin
guished men do undertake the ar
duous trip to Meeker we should avail
ourselves of the opportunity not only
to hear them in their formal discours
es hut also to make every effort to
meet them personally. No doubt such
visits present to u* our greatest med
ium of making our city and our. re
gion known to the other parts of the
state. Happily Bishop Ingley has re
turned to Denver with the Impression
Hint Meeker is the coming community
of northwestern Colorado.
There Is a twofold duty we owe
ourselves whenever ii distinguished
visitor comes among us, viz: To de
rive what ever Information and know
ledge alsMit the outside we can from
him. and to import to him the charac
teristics, in which we should feel a
great measure of pricks of our com
munity.
The situation Is exactly lids: Bis
hop Ingley eatne here expecting to
find a small, unimpressive town which
would Is* » source only of boredom to
him. Instead, he found that our's is a
live community where busiiiess is
good: a community—anil this is a
rare* tiling for an Inland town—which
can support two banks, a commercial
chili which is on the Job; and. best of
nil. a group of people eager to make
a stranger welcome. His wide acquatn
tnneo throughout tlie state will mean
a correspondingly wide dissemination
of desirable information concerning
Meeker. That is the best and only cf
ficient way of advertising our town.
During his stay here. Bishop Ingley
preached twice at Ht James Church
and addressed a gathering of men at
a dinner Monday evening. He is an
able and forceful speaker, with a
wealth of sound practical idoaa. Hit
talk on “The I'laee of the Church In
the World.” called forth the admira
tion of every niHii present at tha
meeting. No thinking man after hear*
ing such a talk could go away without
a definite admission of the necessity
of the work which the Christ Ins
Is trying to do.
Among other things. Bishop Ingley
declared that this Is the most mom
inentous age In the world’s history,
and that America is the greatest
country In the greatest age in the hi#*
tory of the world. In speaking of the
responsibility placed on the United
Slates lie cited the fact that every
•intlon in the world looked upon Am*
erica as the economic, industrial, soc
ial. moral and religious hois* of the
world. The ability to shoulder that
responsibility depended. Ik* said, up
<n our devotion to the »*»ool and the
Church. Both must go hand In l:*in«i.
Our government is founded upon
conception flint the major fy have a
passion for the rigiit. To educate the
mind only is to produce a cold selfish
autoiiuitoui: to educate the heart only
is to create a maudlin sentimentlj*
ism : to educate both is to maintain
perfect balance. The mosc important
buildings in any community, he de-. ,
clarcd. were the churches and the
schools. A democracy cannot exiat
without education und u ’ sense of
right.
Ijct us hope that what we have
learned from Bishop Ingley will bear
fruit in an increased attention to
and interest in our schools ami the
elm relies; let us hope that wlmt Ityk
has learned of Meeker and its dth
zens will bear fruit in the mateilgk.
development of our community. On#
such man who takes with him a Just
opinion of us does more good than
thousands of printed circulars.
