—Christianity carried broadcast by a
two-cent stamp. Sounds odd, compared
with the methods of the late Sam
Jones, Dwight L. Moody and other
great evangelists who relied largely
upon personal magnetism as a means
of securing converts. Yet this Idea
has been adopted seriously by Rev.
Ward R. Clarke, pastor of the Uni-
tarian church of Oklahoma Cltyv Okla.
"Yes, 1 am very much In earnest,

no matter whether delivered orally or
in writing, and. moreover, it is a fact
that the average man or woman re-
members more clearly what they read
than what they hear.
"Our idea of religion is plain. We
do not depend upon working up an
audience to a high pitch of fervor.
We prefer to convert by the exercise
of reasoning power, in short, we try
to produce argument in support of our
belief—argument which can be consid-
ered free from exciting environment.

many public speakers cast over an
"According to my plan I will mall
a copy of my sermon to each member,
and, of course, it is my hope to make
the organization state wide. Perhaps
some will read my sermons more than
once—I hope so, at least-and it is
further hoped that a system of filing
the sermons will be inaugurated.
"Vanity," said Dr. Clarke, "is one of
the most oaneful things in the world,
and my idea of sermons by mail cer-
tainly strikes a blow at vanity, be-
cause it at once does away with the
all too common habit which the wom-
en have of going to church merely for
a display of sartorial peacockage.
There need be no bonnet carnival nor
silk skirt exposition under the terms
of my plan, for the church member,
sitting in the quiet of his or her home,
will simply read and assimilate my
sermon, and if there be anything of
Kood in It, there Is every opportunity
for it to take effect. Whether the
woman be in Worth gown or plain
gingham wrapper, It makes no dif-
ference so far as her grasping a writ-
ten sermon is concerned, and the man
in overalls has an equal chance with
the man in broadcloth and silk tile.
Rev. Mr. Clarke has a secretary who
is busily engaged these days in mail-
ing prospectuses of his novel plan to
men and women in every part of Okla-
homa. His office is equipped with type-
writers. desks, mimeographs and other
paraphernalia such as are used by the
ordinary business house.

Yale graduate, also a graduate of the

In his career he left lowa for the east

INDIA NATIVES IN CONGRESS.
Men Seemed Pleaaed Their Woman
Folk Could Speak So Well in Public.
The part which Indian women
played in the recent national con-
gress is causing some comment. Over
a hundred Madras Hindu ladies as
sembled at the Bocial congtess. when
several read papers before a large au-
dience of men.
"This is the first time that a caste
woman In Madras has ever spoken
in public." was the comment of a
Hrahmln lady. The faces of the men
were an interesting study, for th
large audience seemed to be vastly
amused, astonished and pleased to
think that their women tolk could
speak so well In public.
The papers read showed that
thoughtful and caretul consideration
is now being given by Indian WOI"«n
to Important domestic subjects. The
papers were on "Marriage Kxpenses.

Interesting reading. In the three prov-
inces of Manitoba. Saskatchewan and
Alberta, which comprise what may be
known as Central Canada, there was a
total wheat yield of about 107,000^00
bushels, worth to the farmer about
$85,000,000; In addition to this the oat,
barley and flax crops were worth an-
other $35,000,000. Letters have been
received from many of the settlers
from the United States. From these,
that of Rev. Oscar L. King has been
selected. He lives in the vicinity of
Edmonton, Alberta, and what he sa>s
will be of Interest to those who con-
template moving to Central Canada.
Every line of the letter Is interesting.
Those who wish for the particulars as
to how to secure homesteads and pre-
emptions should write any Canadian
Government agent. Mr. King Bays:

berta This country offers excellent
opportunities for anyone to make a
good home for himself and family
if he is willing to put up with a few
hard knocks for the first two or three
years. Hut It Is worth a few hard
knocks to get a 160-acre farm of rich
productive land with no mortgage on
It. This province Is well fitted for
grains, stock raising and dairying. we
have found the climate generally
healthful, more healthful than Mich-
igan, and although the thermometer
sometimes drops to 40 degrees below
zero In winter, yet we do not seem to
feel that temperature any more than
we did 5 or 10 degrees below zero In
Michigan. We like the winters
"The Government takes great inter
est in the education of the people and
quickly aids the settlers in eaUbUafr
ing schools where they are called for.
The schools, though graded differently
than those In the States, are efficient
and advancing. Our great drawback
has been the limited and inadequate
railway facilities, but new roads are
being rapidly built and many more
are projected through various parts
of the province. The new policy of
the Alberta government to construct
a great many branch lines throughout
the province will greatly help all parts
of the country. If those uew settlers
who have to go back a considerable
distance from existing railroads and

ed railroad they will In two or three
years be near both town nnd railroad.
