Silk Street Suits
w sssh-k tjsshdskv.
Some time before the days of mid
summer have really arrived, merchants
assemble stocks of silk street suits,
ready to be presented when the llrst
hot day comes. These midsummer
suits are almost untrlmmed, hut are
carefully designed and distinguished
by smart style-touches and niceties of
finish that place them closo to the
formal suit class.' Clever women
eometlmes take their graceful hut
plain suits and tone them up with a
little effective hand work, but even
without that, they are equal to almost

The Medium of
The m o d 1 u m
man recelvcs'God's revelation Is faith.
Man discovers material thtngs through
tho medium of tho senses: sight, hear
ing, touch, taste, smell. Tho whole
world Is open for discoveries to tho
man who possesses Intact his live
senses. Through such mediums, how'
ever, ho cannot discover God. Faith
Is the only medium through which tho
soul discovers tho things of God.
Faith Is the soul sense by which we
"taste and eo that God Is good." Faith
Is the soul senso by which we "seek
tho Lord, If happily wo might feel
after him, nnd find lflm." Thank God
Cor tho touch of faith I Faith is tho
soul senso by which wo see God. Paul
tells us that truth Is spiritually dis
cerned. It Is the eye of faith which
sees God In nature, in providence, In
grace. It Is tho eye of faith which be
holds Christ in his beauty nnd sees the
wonders of his grace.
A righteousness of God Is revealed
"from faith unto faith." Tho gar
ments of righteousness nro fully de
scribed and offered to man in tho Gos
pel. God Is ready to Invest man with
all that his faith will appropriate. The
process Is like learning mathematics,
From problem to problem, from the
simple to the dlfflcult, from tho difficult
to the more dlfflcult, until tho boy has
imparted to him a knowledge of
mathematics up to tho measure of hie
ability to receive. So man Is Invested
with a righteousness of God from
faith unto faith; from the simple to
tho dlfflcult, from tho dlfflcult to the
The Meaning of Revelation.
The righteousness of God revealed
in the Gospel Is 'offered to man's faith
ns something to lay hold of and live up
to. By his faith ha appropriates much
or little. "The just shall live by his
faith." There is no limit in the de
velopment of man's spiritual life and
no limit to his achievement in Chris
tlan service, if only he will exercise
faith. If man has but meager faith
and will live up to It, he wfll acquire
more faith in tho process, and acquir
ing more faith will grow in spiritual
grace and usefulness. The trouble is
most people Hvo up to their doubts
rather than up to their faith.
I was aiding onco in a canvass for
funds to establish a Crlttendon Rescue
Home. Calling up a rich member of
my congregation, I presented the
cause. ITe said : "I doubt if even God
can do much for a fallen woman.
doubt if such a creature Is ever re
claimed. The enterprise docs not np
peal to me." So he declined to make
n contribution. He lived squnrely up
to his doubts.
I called also upon a young business
man of moderate means and presented
the cause, ne replied : "Yes 1 Yes 1 1
will contribute. God only can help
such unfortunate creatures. I believe
that such rescue work Is ono of the
roost Chrlstllko and effectual missions
,of the church." Ho gave $500. He
lived up to his faith.
Knowing of tho waywardness and
moral peril of a young man In my pnr
isli, I called on his mother to nsk help
and prayer In behalf of her son. She
said : "I doubt If ho Is as bad as you
think. I cannot feel that he Is In any
great peril." Sho lived up to her
doubts. No home Influences were re
leased to save him. Loss than a year
later ho was found dead hi a brothel
having died In a" drunken debauch.
Mother's Prayer Is Answered.
Some years ago a great union meet
ing was conducted by Sam Jones nnd
George Stewart In tho city where 1
.was a pastor. One night Mr. Jones
stepped to tho front of tho plntforra
nnu read this telegram : "Temple. Tex.
Pleaso pray for my boy Tom. He Is
In your city n prodigal from God. Am
pouring out my heart In prayer. Will
claim tho victory. (Signed) nis Moth
or." Before Mr. Jones could resume
his sent, a tall young man rose nnd
said, "That is my name, that is ray
mother. Yes, sir, I vtob a terrible sin
nor ; I have broken my mother's heart
and tho henrt of my ppor young wife,
nnd I havo blighted tho Hfo of our Ut

tlmo this messago left Temple, I was
yonder In tho parsonago with tho
preacher, calling upon God for mercy,
and he graciously forgave my sins nnd

lived up to her faith and won her boy
back to God. "Tho Just shall Hvo up
to his faith." By this mcana nlono

The Old Man's Call to Duty.
J. H. Snowdcn, n retired farmer
and capitalist, told a Seattle reporter
that he Is on bis way back from south
ern California to his old homo at Cal
gary, Can., to go back to tho fields.
Ho supposed that he had earned a
rest for the remainder of his days, but
now sees that he was mistaken. "I
am now fifty-five years of age," he
said, "and have not dono any manual
labor for eight years, but I am going
to hlro out this summer and fall to
help my former neighbors to harvest
their crops. I figure that as long as
I am too old for military duty, I can
help win tho wnr by helping produco
crops." Thousands of Americans as
well as Canadians will sco their patri
otic duty and take similar action be
fore tho war Is over. Tho call to the
colors is by no means confined to men
and youths under thirty-two. Ne
