The subject for consideration at the,

Control" at the Baptist church last

was out to hear him in spite of the in
tense cold. In the evening he talked
on Why Man is Precious With God,"
and presented many new thoughts.

Kmia Gleaned From t'.ie Teaching
of All Denominations.
God does not threaten to blast a dis
obedient people, but he appeals to their
memory of liis goodness and makes
this the motive for their loyalty.—Rev.
K, Haddow, Presbyterian, Toronto.
Feeding on Christ.
We must feed on Christ as the tree
feeds on the sunshine and the air. We
must drink of Christ as the tree drinks
of the moisture of the soil. We must
correspond with our environments, our
life. Christ is our life, our environ
ment.—Rev. Dr. D. H. Overton, Pres
Woric of tlie Church*
The business of the church is to help
build the kingdom of God in this world,
and in this high task it is having some
success. Countless lives have been
purilied and exalted. Whole tribes
have been lifted from savagery to
Christian civilization. Rev. L. A.
Grandall, Baptist, Chicago.
The Revival Most Needed.
No revival is greater needed now
than the revival that will bring right
eousness to men and make them fear
God. There are many who may not be
concerned about tlie guilt of the past
because they have forgotten it, but for
getfulness is not forgiveness.—C. H.
Yatman, Evangelist, New York.
The Highest Ideal.
Jesus Christ is the highest .ideal of
Christian perfection. He is the "way
and the truth and the life." He came
to teach us by word and by example.
If there is any one 'virtue that the
Saviour inculcates more forcibly than
another, it is this—that our hearts and
will should be in harmony with God's
will.—Cardinal Gibbons, Catholic, Bal
The Brotherhood of Han.
•It seems to me that religion in a na
tion is for the consecration of charac
ter. We havejbeen confronted with
IT.WAS THE BEST
There is no test like the test of
time. Cures everything that can
be cured by a Perfect, Penetrating
Liniment. Good for Han or Beast.
One small bottle of Mexican Hus=
tang Liniment will effect a cure when
a gallon of the watery compounds
sold as liniment would have no result
It is money thrown away to buy them
questions involving the nation and tlie
workinginnn. I won't say anything as
to my own private opinions on such
matters, but to promote Christianity we
must recognize the brotherhood of man.
—Bishop Henry C. Potter, Episcopalian,
The Only Way.
There is but one way for us to come
under the power of Christ, with all
that means for our ennoblement, the
realization of our holiest aspirations,
and that is to come under the power
of the cross. To believe that for the
love of us Christ dit:d is to come under
the constraints of love.—Rev. Dr. Ray
mond, President Union College, Sche
nectady, N. Y.
Kinship of God and Sinn.
God and man always were kin, but
lie or till God displayed himself in
Jesus, showing what he really was in
his deepest eternal nature, never till
then did man believe it, and too many
fail to do that now. Like Ezekiel, they
are afraid to accept the happy fact
that God is as good as Jesus and al
ways has been and always will be.—
Rev. Dr. Camden M. Coburn, Metho
What Heaven la.
To the prisoner heaven is freedom.
To the wanderer it is his father's
house. To the ignorant it is learning.
To this poor, lame boy, to that weak,
deformed girl, it is the roving free
through limitless existence. To the
slave it is a world without labor. To
the weary It is rest. To the sanguine
it' is action. To the doubtful it is
truth. To the struggling it is peace.
To the sick it is health.—Rev. Edward
Everett Hale, Unitarian,-Boston.
Sin's Hold on Man.
Men say to me,
it sometimes does, an extinguisher on
the brain, cutting its possessor off from
mental illumination, then it is a curse.
When money blunts the moral sense
and disqualifies for keen discernment
between right and wrong, when it sti
fles religious impulse and dwarfs the
soul, then it need not be wondered at
that Christ, said scarcely shall a rich
man enter into heaven.—Hev.Dr.Charles
Bayard Mitchell, Methodist, Cleveland.
Reaping the Harvest.
The harvest gatnered is ever larger
than the seed sown. He who sows
sparingly reaps sparingly he who sows
bountifully reaps bountifully. For ex
ample, a man sows the love of money.
What does he reap—dollars and cents?
Probably. But one thing ha does reap—
an intensifying love of money. As the
growth is ever larger than the germ, he
grows fonder and fonder of money. It
is not to be wondered at if he grows
covetous, becomes more and more
grasping, grinding. Nor need we won
der if we see him grow miserly until
the habit of miserliness is ever becom
ing more and more confirmed. What is
true of covetousness and avarice is
also true of intemperance, indolence,
skepticism and the whole train of mor
al evils.—Rev. Dr. William C. Stinson,
Reformed, New York.
A Hodeit Thespian.
Briggs—That fool Stephigh considers
himself the greatest actor on eprth.
Benson—Is that so? He's getting
strangely modest. He used to consider
himself the greatest actor that ever
Never tell a man that he has made a
fool of himself. If he knows it, he will
get angry—and he will get angry alsc
If he doesn't know it
have never com
mitted any great sin." Of course not.
Do you suppose the devil is going to
fasten you with a steel Chain when a
strand of rope will do as well? The
little sins are just as damning. The
Arab of the desert pitches his tent for
the night and prepares for rest. Does
he throw his camel ou the sand and tie
its four feet to prevent it from running
away? No, indeed. He slips a thin
rope about one leg, fastens the other
end around the animal's neck and re
tires to rest confident that the camel
will not get away while he sleeps. So
the devil ties a string around your neck
and holds the other end.—Rev. Dr. W.
W. Weeks, Baptist, Toronto.
The Uses of Wealth.
If money is used to develop a man in
stead of a man being used to make
money, it is a good thing. If money
brings independence, assists the needy,
advances civilization, spreads the gos
pel's glad evangel, then money is prop-
erly used, but when money becomes, as the lamp of life burns low and finally
IT IS THE BEST NOW!
Interesting News Notes
From Black Hills News*
The biggest trust on earth is the
newspaper trust. It trusts every
body, gets cussed for trusting, mis
trusted for cussing, and if it busts
for trusting grets cussed for busting.
Buffalo Gap is not the largest nor
the busiest town in the Hills, but it
can boast of a pretty yood news
paper in the Republican. Editor
Ballou is certainly giving the people
of that section as good a paper as
the patronage will warrant and he
ought to meet with the hearty sup
port of the business men of the town.
The Republican is the greatest fac
tor possible to let the outside world
know that there is such a place on
the map as Buffalo Gap.
No living soul scatters as much
sunshine in the path of those around
him as the country editor. Did you
ever think of it that way? It's true
as gospel. When the red-faced in
fant enters the home and claims a
place in the family circle the coun
try editor chronicles its arrival,
congratulates the fond parents and
throws out a ray of hope that the
little one's path through life may be
one of roses. This makes the proud
parents feel good. When the home
ly maden w"ds the homlier son
the country editor declares her
"beautiful and accomplished," al
though she may have a wart on her
nose, a mole on her upper lip and is
so built physically that she could
not successfully stop a pig in an
alley. The groom may not be just
what the Almighty intended he
should be, but the country editor
declares him "honest industrious
and promising." Never is a stumb
ing block thrown in the way the
loak of charity is drawn over the
faults nnd shortcomings and the
orighter and better side of life is
held up to the world. When the
lour of dissolution comes, when
i^oes out, when death enters the
iiome, who speaks the words of com
fort and- hope to the bereaved?
Who refers only to trie virtues, the
£ood traits, of the departed one?
Whose words lighten the burden of
sorrow? Who throws a ray of
and light into the darkened places of
that stricken home? The country
editor. And so it goes through life,
with the country editor a dispenser
of sunshine and joy, a foe to corrup
tion, a reflector of the true sentiment",
of the common ^people. The public
realizes little of what it owes to the
country editor. It has no truer or
better or more influential friend and
servant than he.

The price of many drugs used lai
medicine is astonishing to those who
are not acquainted with the subject,"
remarked a druggist to a Philadelphia jj
Times representative. "There are sev'
eral that are worth their weight in gold.
(about $20 an ounce), while $2, §3 and.
$5 an ounce are quite common prices
In pharmacy. But there is one drug
that I can recall which is worth more
than its weight in'gold. This is pseudo
pbysostigmine. I don't think that it:
has a popular name. It is too rich for
that. In the pharmacists' list it is
quoted at $1 a .grain, or $437.50 an
ounce. The seed from which the drug
is made grows in India and prazil, as
well as in parts of South Africa. This
seed, tradition says, was once Uhed by
native chiefs as an ordeal. The ordeal
generally resulted In the death of the.
mau upon whom it was tried and so it:
was considered as a great truth finder..
The prepared drug is sometimes used!

First English Book on Sport.
The first book oh sport ever printed'.1
In the English language was a rhymed,
treatise called the "Boke of St. Al
bans," its author being a woman, Dame
Juliana Berners. Its second edition wasi
printed by Wynkyn de Worde in 1496..
A descendant of her family. Lord Ber
ners, was the translator of Froissart'e.
"Chronicles." It is true that old reanu-
scripts existed, such as the "Veneritv
de Twecy" of the time of Edward II...
but it was Dame Juliana who was the
real ancestress of sporting literature
In England, for she also composed am
essay on hawking and another on
"Fishing With an Angle/' the last be
ing of such excellence that Izaak Wal
ton himself did not disdain to take a
hint from its pages.
