This Is llko tho work which Is being

Germany, whero boys and girls havo
a certain number of hours a week

employed. Employers In Germany,
whero tho system haa been establish

gladly as Chicago employers aro said
to bo co-operating In tho present ex

Is easy to boo why a good many, es
pecially of tho larger employers of la

Making a Holy Man

Btituto what might bo called his legal
In this sermon, however, wo aro to
think about what God graciously docs
to transmute this legal standing of
tho believer before him into tho nctuul
cxpcrlenco and conduct of tho believ
er himself. This Is what wo mean by
"salvation from tho subjective side."
If tho other things touch on Christ's
work "for" us, these relate to Christ's
work "In" us, on tho supposition that
wo havo received him as our Savior,
nnd confessed him ns our Lord.
In other words, he, through the Holy
Spirit, does several things which go
to mnko tho true believer a holy man,
nnd which are enumerated In this
eighth chapter of Paul's letter to tho
Romans; for although our text is lim
ited to but ono verse, wo intend to
speak of more than one.
In tho first place, tho Holy Spirit
sets tho believer freo from tho law
of sin and death, verses 2 to -1.
Prior to IiIb regeneration through
faith In Christ, tho believer was un
der the power of a tendency or law
In tho direction of sin, the outcome
of which, wns death, eternal death;
but tlil incoming of tht Holy Spirit to
him means that a now tendency or law
has been set up within him whose di
rection Is just tho opposite to this.
In tho second place, tho Holy Spirit
gives him tho spiritual "mind" or dis
position to obey and follow out this
tendency Jn tho direction of holiness
and eternal life verses C-10.
In tho third place, ho not only gives
him tho Bplrltunl mind, but goes far
ther nnd gives tno spiritual power to
exorclso that mind, verses 11-13, so
thnt tho Christian liaB no cxcubo for
A Life of Victory.
Tho Now Tcstnment does not teach
a doctrlno of slnlcBS perfection, or tha
orndlcntlon of evil from our hearts,
ns long ns wo remain In tho flesh, but
It does teach that thero 1b such a
thing as living n llfo of victory over
every known sin every dny. Chris
tians hnvo no juustiflcntlon for apol

help them so fnr as their old naturo '
Is concerned, but tho very purposo of
tho Indwelling of tho Holy Spirit Is
to cnnblo thorn to live n supernatural
llfo or power over them if they yield
their wIUb to him.
In tho fourth place, tho Holy Spirit
gives thbollevor spiritual encourage
ment to exorclso this power, for ho
bears witness within him to his Son
ship to God and heirship ns well
through Josus Christ verses 14-17.
What stronger motive could thero bo

things and consider thorn otherenl and

real things, tho substanco of life, while

RATHER STUPID PARIS FANCY
Zebra Rip Could Only Attract the
Gazo Because of the Extreme
Very odd, Indeed, aro Bomo of tho
new tailor-mades, writes a Paris cor
respondent. In fact, a few of them ir
resistibly suggest that the wearer, de
spairing of finding any new ways of
being beautiful, is as a last resource
falling back on ways of being ugly.
How otherwise could ono account
for a coat liko an Early Victorian dress
ing jacket, than which nothing moro
shapeless has yet been discovered In
tho history of costume, made of stone
colored cloth, nnd suddenly bursting
into an orgy of black nnd stone-colored
zebra strlpings, just on a level with
tho cuffs, which aro of tho samo ar

tho coat, has also tho horizontal strlp

a biego jacket standing up in a black

will bo adopted by the district au
thorities a system of finger print
Identification of nil infants born in
public institutions. Such a system is
now in use in New York, and other
cities aro contemplating its adoption.
The results have proved encouraging.
The system has tho indorsement of
Dr. William C. Woodward, district
health officer, and George S. Wilson,
secretary of the board of charities.
Tho only thing which stands in tho
path of the adoption of the finger print
identification system in tho national
capital Is tho small number of cases
of abandoned children. It is hardly be
lieved that tho number would justify
tho introduction of tho Bcherao, which,
would entail the expenditure of a rath
er largo amount of money.
"The plan is an excellent one," said
Dr. Woodward. "It has been given an
extensive trial in New, York city. Re
