Christ makes rse of the following words, j the good that 1 would I do not. but iee? ' Follow thou the evil which I would not, that I of any church granted that this is your objection. Men and women, in this life, do not reach that exalted plane where they are perfect. As "eternal vigilance is the price of lib erty," so eternal watchfulness is the price of faithful stewardship. The doctrine of "sinless perfection" is-un-scriptural. St. John says, "If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us." Paul, be yend a doubt regenerated, said, "For Chicago, Nov. 3. London, founded w;me 2,0'H) years before Chicago, ha just claimed 4,758,217 population for the city proper almost exactly twice the population that eats, sleeps and hi'stles in this city. What amazing things have been done in the Vnited States of America. It was 1.500 years ago that the Romans, who found London a village, left it a city for those days. It was 1. 100 yea's before America was discovered. It Is less than a century since wild ducks quacked undisturbed on the Chicago river. Now London and Miburbs "Greater London" have an ai-ea of 434.419 square - acres, as Bgainst the 114.932 acres Inside Chi- cago's city limits. London's munici pality expended less than Chicago: it j streets are MM miles in length as against Chicago's' 4.22C miles of atreets.

However, going back to population figtires. Chicago has more than most of the states in the union, Including Iowa, Wisconsin, Tennessee. Nebraska, Minnesota, Ken tucky and Arkansas: there are only seven states that have more people, among them being Michigan, Mis ! nmrt.

We deem this response of his in reply to a trivial question by one of his disciples, a fitting answer to these who magnify the number of bvnoeties" supposed to be in the church. The Infallible Basis. In dying Christ consummated the "plan of salvation," becoming the "comer-stone" of the Church. In this institution, hoary with age and c.f Divine origiu. there is one way of sal vation recognized; viz., through faith iu Jesus Christ, to whom "every knee rhall bow, every tongue confess." He himself, says: "I am the way, the truth, the life; no man cometh to the father bi t by me." The Church was mercilessly assailed by unconverted j Jew and Pcgan Rome, but within three centuries after the church's In-, edition the God's qf the Panthecn paled Into mist and legend, and throughout the great empire the new faith that of Christbegan to be dominating one. The Church still ex ists, a Wvlne institution, numbering among her standard bearers the faith ful followers of Christ, found in every. denomination in the world. Men dif- fei In religion, politics, sociology. It could not be expected for unanimity to be found in the Church regarding much of detail doctrine and polity. Any fair-minded, sane individual will admit his fallibility, that his "think ing so" doe not always make it so! Christians today are divided into those who recognize an Infallible Chrrch and the ones adhering to an Infallible revelation from God through a book, the Bible. Comment is un necessary as to the "right" and "wrong" of these camps. Instead of the different "denominations" being an element of "weakness" as is some- do." Yet we desire to emphasize this: it is possible for Church-members, Christians, to become more nearly "sanctified" set apart from the world for God's service each lay; for the elements of religion in the individual are capable of cultiva tion, resulting in growth. Being 'saved" is not something between a man and his neighbor, but God and n an are involved: 'no mater what my fellow does or leaves undone, so far as my personal salvation goes; it is w hat I do; my "faith and works." You tied I should not hold back because of the unworthiness or inconsistencies or others, ami anove an means tio i.ot feel that, because one identifies himself with a church, he is to be H enceforth Iniprtgnable to tempta tion! But to these "hypocrites" one more. It would be wisdom for us to investigate the meaning of the term, seeing whether or not we use It cor- tcctly. A Hypocrite Defined. Webster, good authority, defines it in this connection thus "a false pre tender to virtue or piety;" "one who Fimulates virtue or piety." Pretends this is the burden of the meaning. Now, objector, by what means do you nrdertake to determine as to the pre tended piety or virtue of the Church m ember who sins, makes mistakes, yields to temptation? Moses, Abra ham, David, Solomon, Peter, Paul and many other Biblical characters were guilty of wrong-doing, yet would you call them "hypocrites?" Without an extensive argument, we unhesitating ly affirm that, many good men and women commit sins; they walk for bidden paths; they fall on life's Jour-; ney; yet it will not do any to say that. they are not striving to lead a Chris- ages," so that when the storms of time rage fiercest, we as Christians may be able to fold our hands and trust, full of serenity, In the one who fotinded the Church. Is our lot humble? Be not discouraged. When the Father's time conies for us to enter Into some greater sphere of usefulness, if we are ready we will be advanced. The way to be ready is through Christ into the Church anil finally through the Church Into Heaven. THE SALOON AND MURDER. Subject of Strong Sermon By Rev. D. Bass D.

True, In the years gone by much time was spent and animosity ngendered far from a Christian f;pirlt in profitless "debates" and un called-for stiife among the leaders In the different branches of the Church: I til. happily, those days are over, and while "differences" exist now as then, reason dictates that (hose who "see" alike doetrinally should associate themselves together for concerted ac ticn. not asainst "brethren" of oppo site, or different "faiths." but against Evil! More and more with each pass ing year, the slrgan cf the Church is becoming. "In essentials unity, In non e-i.i-entlals liberty, and In all things charity." Harmony in Choice. harn one of ns should identity nrn- Jrsus Christ, and self with the Church, with that branch , irt. the Chrrch tenders, niasuueraders in the Church. Paul once taid something about lay ing "aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset and "run ning with patience the race" the Christian race. Your "besetting sin" is not mine and vice versa, but we n.t.st all "wiitcii" lest we fall when come certain temptations. Men and women should have charity for each other, writing each other's faults In the sand that by and by the gentle tide of love may efface all signs of tl.em. Final Answer to Objections. We will admit that there are folk In the church who are not what they should be. This is no reason, how ever, that you and I should refuse to rrrept the grace of God, through identify ourselves Remember, "If we llev. L. D. Bass D. D., in his ser mon at Caivaty Baptist church yester- I'ay to a good congregation said in pi; it:' "There must be a new educa tion in the American people in regard tc the drink evil ami murder. It must be carried in the homes, in the Sun- lay school, in the public schools and from the pulpit. We have witnessed this week in our fair little city the murder of a worthy man by a saloon keeper and murderer. Could you read the saloon keeper's ledger what would ii reveal? It is a book of results. Its balance sheets are the accumulated harvest of day-book and journal. The people of Cairo have had business with the saloon a good many years. The day-books of every-day occur rences have passed into the journal of the years and these have crystal-' lized into a ledger of public knowl-1 edge. The liquor saloon, like any- other business must stand or fall by Its ledger. The saloon is the mother of nearly ail the crime in Cairo. It is a curse from which there Is no mitigation. The fact is, that the liquor saloon is at heart an ootiaw. The only 'effec tive way to deal with it is to take it for what it Is, a criminal, and deal with it as a criminal. When you can tame a gambling hell and make it a srffe resort for men; when the Ethi opian can change his skin, and the leopsrd his ppj.U' ther you may hope to draw the teeth of the liquor saloon. N'othing but the hard fist of the Ten Commandments, with the police power of the city and the elate and nation tiehiml it. can ilea! with such an Institution. Are we r ot. as citizens, responsible for allow ing this murderer with his saloon, in cur fair city? Not only is he a mur derer, but he has been dealing out the (lamnaoie sturr mat may make your boy and mine a murderer. We have the picture of the mur derer before vs. The victim lies in lis blood: and the murderer with clenched pistol is stalking away. Over the victim poises the Angel of ven geance with drawn sword pointing to the disappearing viilian. the svmboll divine assurance that crime shall j rj in plan and method by which he hop?s t'.. cover his tracks, Even then, as we have seen, crime proves oftjnest its. best tletective, and the test laid plans of criminals, will "gang alt egleo" upon the principle that false hood and crime are never consistent at all points with themselves Ariadne's due of vengeance will fnl lew them through the very labyrinth c; their seneme or iniquity ana nmi them cuit. More than this, the t'Towth of detective 'education keeps race with the skill of evil; and In no period of human history has it ever been harder for the criminal to escape than now. The only difficulty In the way of civilization in this country, at least upon this point, is the low sense of Justice which re fused to convict often the highest crimes and inflict their just penalty, cr when convicted, find their commu tation cr pardon at the hands of cor rupt executives, wnose only patriot ism lies in party politics, or else in bribes. CHRIST AND LITTLE THINGS Discussed By Rev. O. D. Map-e at Saf ford Hall Yesterday Morning and Last Night. Both services at Safford Hall yes terday were largely attended and very Interesting. In the morning Rev. Maple preach ed from Matt. 11:28-40 on the subject: "A Christ to Comfort." In which he showed that not only must Christ be the Savior of sinners, but a comfort to saints. Most people need comfort, peace and rest and Rev. Maple drew a distinction between stagnation per fect quiet and rest. "Rest," he said, "was undisturbed quietude, in the very midst of trouble and tempests and the conflicts of life. That saints may have this rest Jesus said, "Come Unto Me." Learn of Me.

This is the fate of the murderer; anil though he may escape from the law of man, yet he cannot get away from God and conscience, himself nor the Devil. Conscience may sometimes" or fot awl. lie be dead; but even then there is a silent, sullen and Inert sense of despair wliich settles down upon the blood-stained and ruined soul. There may be no pr"; ':it or pt ignant regret, but there Is' no hoe and no peace. The darkness and dread of midnight lowers forever uion the dead heart, even when conscience ceases to throb through its blood for a season.
