The meetings are entirely devoid of sensationalism and the different phases of the Christian faith have been discussed in a plain straightforward manner that could not fail to make a strong appeal to all thinking and open minded persons, and must be productive of lasting results for good. On Tuesday evening the subject was: "That Boy, a Knight." He took for his text Luke 2:52: "And Jesus grew in wisdom, in stature and in favor with God and man." In other words, Ke grew mentally, physically, spiritually and socially. Every normal boy grows in exactly the same way. There are four institutions touching boy life on these four sides: The school is supposed to look after him mentally. His leisure time provides for him physically. The church his needs spiritually and the home supervises him socially. Are these institutions meeting these four needs. Our schools have given him knowledge, but have failed to develop character. They act well, look well, behave well before folks, but lack spiritual life We produce too many negatives instead of positive characters. Or. Hall, of Clark University, says juvenile crime in all civilized countries is on the increase on account of unsupervised leisure time, and this is due to the failure of the home, the school and church to understand and provide for the needs of four-sided boy life. ,vj<j!e bnin is the devil's work shop. The associations of a boy's leisure time tell in which direction he is traveling. The home is practically a failure in providing for his social life. Of the four institutions, I think the school is the most deficient of any of them. Unsupervised leisure, the most dangerous. The church is beginning to realize hei responsibility and is providing for the social life of the boys and girls. This is the one institution that remains with him. Character is not built by rules. Keep the young occupied by the good, clean and wholesome and evil will have little chance to enter. There are two classes of people, the selfish and unselfish. Those that help others and those that look out for self. Which class are you in? What are we doing for the young of the community? Are we willing to give of our time and talents to develop the four sided character. or are we like the man in the Iroquois fire at Chicago, who lost his bead and came out over the bodies of women and children, while a young man placed a plank from the roof to the balcony, and helped women and children to safety, and played the part of a true Knight by giving his life for others? It was a stirring address. Rev. Thompson and Miss Genevieve Drum sang a fine duet, which was greatly enjoyed. Mr. Drum's subject on Wednesday night was: "The Divine Executive." It was a plain and clear discussion of the work and office of the Holy Spirit. The speaker showed how Jesus before His death and after His resurrection promised to send the Divine Executive to take His place, to be a comforter, a guide and a teacher to His disciples, and how expedient it was for them that He go away, so that they might have the help and instruction of the third person of the Trinity. He showed what His coming had meant to the disciples of Jesus, how it had taken out fear and made them brave and living epistles of Christ How He was a person and how He came into our lives in the same way as into the lives of the disciples; and how His presence cleansed, purified and strengthened them by taking out all fear. He spoke of the work done by this Divine Executive during the past centuries and made it exceedingly plain that we could avail ourselves of this same help by simply asking our Father God to give Him to us. His discription of conversion was ex- be said Extra delicious Easter Candies. No other candies excel these in delicacy of flavor and purity. Rudd'S Bl8»pl© Nilfc Puffs.
