It is the mission of the church—th
rural as well as the city—to evange-
lize the whole world, to train to the
highest degree of efficiency those
whom It evangelizes and to seek to
make the spirit of Jesus the absolute
rule In all human relations.

Duty of Christianity to EvanfleUxe ths .
It Is an admitted economic fact that
there can be no permanent prosperity
without a permanent agriculture.

Pastor St. John M. E. Church. South.
•4 St. Louis. Mo.
Some years ago, the question was
asked: What is a college? The at-
tempt to answer it shook the educa-
tional world in America from center
to circumference. Another question is
now beginning to be asked: What is
a church? Without undertaking to
fiv# a definition of it, let me ask, in
(bli initial paper, what the church
it for? The New Testament reveals
three distinct tasks to which it is
First, that of evangelization. Th
church ia divinely commissioned to
reach for the lowest and the least
man in tho least land and offer him
eonship to the Eternal God; offer him
% divine power, which lifts him out
of the bog and places him upon the
feighest levels of human life, where
God and the soul are In fellowship.
This alone were an Immense prir*
Teaching the Art of Living.
The church i commissioned alls
to teach and train those who are
rich with its evangelistic message.
The term, Religious Education, has
com* to mean a specific thing in our
country, namely, the training of the
people in the local church in those
dees matters which pertain to the
art of living. I am not now speaking
of the work of education in schools,
colleges and universities, but the work
of education at our doors, In the con-
gregation. Every agency in reach
should be employed to the utmost in
this Important mission. Indeed, the
local church could be made a sort of
university for all the people, in which
the simple, practical arts and virtues
of everyday life should be taught and
enforced. Only recently has this
special phase of the church's work re-
ceived anything like adequate atten-
tion. The New Testameni word tor
It 1* Edification.
School of Religion Needed.
Of course, the Sunday School is the
Center for all this work, although the
activities of the church should extend
through the entire week and the Sun-
day 8chool should cease to be se
named. It should be called the School
of Religion or the Church School or
something else that indicates it to be
an all-the week activity. During this
time various and Bundry clubs, classes,
musical organizations, culture courses,
as well as distinctly religious meetings,
slftuld be held. Thickly settled neigh-
borhoods, as we shall see, offer fine
opportunities for the development of
The third task to which the church
t! committed is that vf Christianizing
the Social order; that of Infusing the
•plrit of Jesus into every nook and
corner of our Ufe. Nothing is forel
to the interest ef the church.
Neighborly Love Essential.
If religion pervades and colors the
whole life then ours Is serious busi-
ness, for It will let no corner of the
world escape its Influence. The sooner
we learn that Christianity Is not a
thing to be practiced In a corner the
better for the world. The question of
the eighteenth century, touching Chile.
Uanity, was, Can It be made to square
with the human reason? Of the nine-
teenth, Can It be made to square with
the results of scientific research? Of
the twentieth, WUt <*# it do?

THE NATION's DINNER TABLE
When the dinner bell of this nation
I rings there have been slaughtered for
I the repaBt 13,000 beeves, 21,000 hogs,
4,600 sheep, 2,000 hundredweight of
) poultry and oth£r meats, and there
1 have been 700,000 bushels of cereals
1 and 540,000,000 pounds of vegetables
prepared for the feast. Multiply these
quantities by one thousand, repre-
senting approximately the number of
meals per annum, and we have the
annual contents of the nation's larder.
But with all our Immense quantity,
superb quality and wide range of pro-
ducts, the American housewife, like
the wife of King NebuchadnezTar,
longs for variety and she goes market-
ing In foreign lands. She buys abroad
$200,000,000 per annum of farm pro-
ducts that can and should be produce*
in the United States.

The Tulsa Booster Train ar-
rived in Davenport on schedule
time, Tuesday at 12:48 p. ni.
The twenty piece band led the
way, while the boosters marched
up main street to the bank cor
uer from whence the boosters
scattered to call on their friends,
and the band played on.
We had the pleasure of meet
ing Mr. Olds, of the Olds Press.
The slogan of the boosters was
"Buy it at home; and if you
cm't get it at home, come to
Tulsa for it."
