These wcro the
words of a man
of affairs, ono
who had attained
tho highest posl
tlon within reach,
und that not by
chnnco, but by the
force of his quali

as well as tho
heights of Inti

self something to which many are
very Indifferent a soul that related
liim to God, and differentiated him
from the bruto creation. Whether
that which ho recognized was In Itself
immortal or only contained the pos
sibility of Immortality need not Inter
est us now, but It was another self,
an alter ego, what some might call
the subliminal self, find which has In
thoso who have lived a Hfo of pur
poseful sin, been stifled, and yet cries
out constantly for recognition, and
nourishment, and ultimate perfection.
It Is not tho Imbecile who thinks of
Ills soul, hut It Is thi man who recog
nizes his tnie humanity. If you please;
as In this case, oftentimes tho man of
affairs, of parts, of high ambitions.
And this man Is frequently quite out
of patience with thoso who profess to
be physicians of tho soul and yet
prescribe little or nothing that bene
fits tho soul.
Great statesmen, financiers, railroad
magnates. Inventors, artists, manu
facturers, etc., whon they go to
church, want soul food, something to
which tho soul responds. A leading
lawyer recently said with reference to
the message that should be glvon
from tho pulpit: "It should come frcm
God, and should relate to tho Inner
life, it should bo food for the soul."
Tho call was not to something In
definite: "Walt thou only upon God."
Here Is tho recognition of the cor
relative to tho soul, the splrltunl God.
This recognition was not of an ab
stract Idea, but of, a personality it
gave no opportunity for quibbling and
doubting. There was no suggestion In
any little "If." This man of affairs
nnd great parts was not the only his
torical character who has thus thought
and acted. Somo men may bo like
Job and ask where they may find
God, but many others havo had direct
and constant Intercourse with the
spiritual God, they have seen him who
Can this not bo said of our three
martyr presidents? Of Gladstone, of

Oliver Cromwell, Gustavus Adolphus,
Savonarola, Paul, David, Moses, Abra
ham and a host of others? Granting
that these men waited on God, for so
they all professed, their achievements

What Is it to wait on God? Is It not
Keeping silence before him? "Let all
tho earth keep sllonco before him."
And such silence beforo God Is an es
eontlal element of prayer. Ono has
recently said that prayer is not the

listening to God. It Is truo that
"Whatever Is best for me, my God will

This waiting before God, too, sug
gests a readiness to respond to tho
call of God as tho old retainers would
respond to tho call of their liege
lords. And was thero over a period
of tho history of tho race when tho

Washington. A few days ago a
short, stocky man with a quiet man
ner, a skin browned by much outdoor
Hfo, and the steady oyo of ono used
to looking across great distances,
camo to Washington with such small
fuss that It was more than a week
before tho reporters wore awaro of
his presence at all. Ho Is W. T. Lopp,
head of tho government's school sys
tem for Eskimos, and a. man who has
spent most of his Hfo since 1890 In
Alaska, soldom "coming out," as ho
calls a trip down to tho states.
Lopp was a Hoosier schoolmaster,
a boy Juts out of college, whon tho
government sent him nnd another
young man up to Capo Prince of
Wales on Bering Strait to start an
Eskimo school. Ho expected to re
main only two years.
When he went up ho and his part
ner wero the only whlto men living In
all of northern Alaska. They went
alone Into a district where tho natives
wero so dreaded that whalers would
not put Into port, even for haven In

first, but we Insisted on having our

"That first winter wo learned that
tho Eskimos wanted to own reindeer,
but that the revenue officers would
not permit tho Importation. Somo of
tho natives oven owned reindeer In
the Siberian hords across tho straits.
And It seemed a shame that they
wero forblddon to bring their property
across from Asia, so near that tho
Siberian heights could bo Eeon over

Prof. William E. Castlo was doing

' Professor Castlo is from Harvard
university, and several weeks ago ho
departed from this port on his search
in tho interest of science. Experi

mcrhorn Hall, in Columbia university,
and also In the Station of Evolution,
at Cold Spring Harbor, to dotormlno
variations which occur in accordance
with tho laws of heredity. Tho rec
ords concern tho guinea pig birth rate
quite Intimately. It has been asserted
that tho American breed are no longer
guinea pigs at all. That Is why tho
professor has gone to tho mountains
of Peru to bring back a consignment
of guinea pigs which aro supposed to
bo of tho truo typo. Meanwhile scl
enco must wait.
As everybody knows, guinea pigs,
even of tho ancestral typo, are Guiana
pigs, and Guiana pigs aro not pigs,
'but aro rabbits. Hence, tho pigs aro
;not pigs and never wore.
It Is a long trip from tho mountains
lof Peru to Sandy Hook and Professor
Castlo, Btartlng with only one pair of
(guinea pigs of tho ancestral typo, is
illkoly to arrive hero with bo many
