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

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

Both services at Safford Hall yes

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
