duty to seek nshteousness. It Is also our
duty not to Indulge In shsnns. not to make

ought to know cannot work In practice,
and which, if we sought to make it work,
mifcht cuse Irretrievable harm. 1 sincerely

believe In applying that principle so far as

to apply it where it Is nut practicable can

the troublu to formulale clearly and

Of course there are persons wholly Indif

who, in consequence, cannot be reached by

and there are other persons whose In
