Bpiclng their talk with oon iderable profanity, these voung men will demonstrate how such modern and wlae men of the world a them selves are quite superior to that out grown thing called Christianity. Then go downstairs to where the editorial writer have their office along with the men who control the destinies of the paper. Probably no profanity will be heard, and a surprising pro portion of the men will be found to be members of the church, and occasion ally speakers at religious convention. The parallel la significant, but Its prin cipal point Is that a little knowledge of life tends to Irreverence, wnereaa a broader grasp of human nature and human history makes men religious. The reporter .will have outgrown their frivolous attitude toward the sublimities by the time they have graduated Into editorial offices. In like fashion, one may find the clerks In the dSDartments at Wash ington, Ottawa and London, quick with clever sneer and gibe at religion, out presidents, premiers, cabinet officers, and other leading statesmen may be found during their hours of ease read ing or writing the book of religion and philosophy. The Inventor of the Oatllng Oun, Dr. Oatllng. once said to me, when our convention chanced to fall uDon hi friend. Mr. Ingersoll, that he thought Mr. Ingersoll was a very able man and a very clever man, but by no mean a 'truly great man, for every great man la possessed of the spirit of reverence. May we not add that the greatness of the great consists in the recognition of the greater? The coronation of a king, or the inauguration of a president, is a religious function. Our present lesson takes us Into an orleatal .palace. W find one of the confidential servants . of "the great king." a man with constant access to the royal presence, forgetting hi pride and privileges and bowing low In prayer to the Lord of Hosts. Old Bhushan, that scene of royal pomp, never witnessed a nobler spectacle than Nehemlah's prayerful concern for welfare of Jerusalem. Nehemiah when ha bant upon his knees than when ha stood before the conquering Xerxes. Religion and A flairs. There is a suspicion widely preva lent that the writer ot religious litera ture do not know real life. They dwell In an artlflcal atmosphere of piety. They meet only their own kind. Like some preachers, they are out of touoh with men in the everydayness of life, where men meet men and the trade of each la forgotten. That religious talk and teaching la often perfunctory and professional i cannot be denied. Some of the standards they hold up will not endure the fresh air and the sunlight Nevertheless - and notwithstanding religion is for real men and for strong men, for the statesmen at the capital and for th farmer at the ,ilow. , Tht - Jum now there is a big drive on to ecure sweater or our boy In camp, and for $hoaa going off to Frano. Our olditrs, Who are aolna out t stand between us and the gun are cqld The,! ivu vivn is caning lor a million hlrriets nd sweaters, and thousands or devoted women are working over time trying to fill this great demand. .

Knitting for 1 A few days since 1 visited the werst- Aa -counters or several of our big de partment stores to get some wool to finish up e soldier's sweater. : Before these counters I found that women were lined up three-deep purchasing wooi ana neeaies. i looked at Xhem sun sacisiacuon; our women were v certainly 'awake to the needs of our Dove." , - And then!

Tltrla which had come to his knowledge and ro to hi sens of responsibility Nehe miah found that his Influence and position and statecraft were tot equal to the emergency.

C-m.enwd fer Inv. d one beyond our roach, concerned for grave national ills, concerned fcr pooi. distraught China and for in Imperilled Christians of Turkey, w can but follow Nehemlah's statmn like example and carry their case to the Klnff kings. . . '. A Model Prayer. The larger Dart of this first chanter of the book of Nehemiah Is taken up with the prayer of the cuobearer of the king. . It contains all the elements of a model. Prayer. First, there the finnble mind of the suppliant. He wept and mourned and fasted. Ar rogance cannot prav. It Is with rea son that men pray from their knees. it is. more important to recognise that ood ls on the throne than to know that we are in a position of need. Nehemlah's prayer exalted Jehovah "that keepeth covenant." The old fashioned prayer of our forefat' i which recoo-nlaed the greatness and sovereignty of Ood, have gone some what out of fashion, but the flippant familiarity which has In sorri cases succeeded them, is no Improvement There muet' be a true spirit of rever ence before there can be any l prayer. ' This mari prayed a big ' prayer While it is true that nothing that ' great enough to concern one of Ood'a children is too small to be taken to him in prayer, yet it Is also true that no worthy prayer nr be made ep wholly- of small and selfish netttlor. In Nehemlah's case v see fulfilled the Psalmist's word, "Pn for the peace of Jerusalem." He carried a nation on his heart. The religious and physical conditions of his coun trymen brought tears to h' e" and anguisn i nis soul, unat is tne Kind of prayer that Ood delights to answer. . Frank, square, open dealing with Ood characterized Nehemlah's peti tion. He confessed his sin and the stn of his people. He pleaded no merit of hie own. All that he asked was of grace, and not of right. Knowledge of the word of Ood en ables one to pray In accord wit; will of Ood. So Nehemiah pleaded the promisee, and he recited Ood's way and . words with the chosen people. Then he left It all with Jehovah, trusting that he might have ' favor with the king when he should appear before htm. He knew that the heart of Xerxes was In the hand of Jehovah. The close of his petition showe that calm assurance which is the first re ward of tih prayer. "'I 1 HOG3 AND THE SOtrTHBRN FARM- ,.ER-8 OPPORTUNITY. , ... JUKE JULY AUG. SEE OCT. KOV. DEC JAN.

The entrance of this nation In the great war was the signal for the Bell System to pledge its entire service, unreservedly to the Government As our military strength grows, and we become larger partic ipants in the great war, the demands of the Government upon our service will continue to increase, and must always be met. An exb-aordinary increase in telephone traffic, due to the un precedented commercial and industrial activity incident to the war, must also be adequately provided for. ' . like the other resources of the nation, our resources must be conserved, and we appeal to the American public, always patriotic to the core, to assist us in meeting these extraordinary conditions by avoiding as far as possible wasteful and extravagant use of the service.
