ant experiences in Europe, and the "Ocean Ferry" finds pleasure in offsetting these by relating the following incident: "A steward on the liner Lapland, following the ship's arrival at Antwerp. found a large roll of American bills under a pillow. He promptly took it to the purser, who found it totaled $750. The two men hastened to the pier and found the woman who had occupied the stateroom just entering a taxicab. She was astonished to find that she had left her money behind, and, accepting it with thanks, entered her cab and departed without mention of reward. The steward was commended by the management."

"There is a gratifying note to most of us," says the "Ocean Ferry," "in the statement made by the chief steward of the Majestic to the effect that bacon and eggs hold their own against fashion on board the Majestic and lead in popularity as a breakfast dish, while apple pie is the most popular dessert at lunch." Thus all the frothy inventions of French chefs beat in vain against the rock-ribbed conventions of the AngloSaxon and his American collaterals.

Visitor from the home of baseball (as reported by London "Punch"): "Well, I'm glad I've seen cricket. I've seen St. Paul's and the Abbey, and they are good goods. But when it comes to hush and the subdued atmosphere, old cricket's got 'em beat."

A man recently left his glass eye in a New Jersey hotel where he had stopped and wrote to the manager asking its return. The manager sent the lost article back and said that it was the first eye he had found since the hotel opened. Articles most commonly left by guests, he added, are pajamas and nightgowns, of which he has a choice collection awaiting their owners' return. Other things frequently left behind by travelers are jewels, umbrellas, canes, brief cases, and razors.

Bishop Candler, of Atlanta, condemning a certain theological controversy, said he was reminded of the colored preacher who began a sermon, "Breddern and sistern, when de fust man, Adam, was created, he was made outer wet clay and set up 'gainst the palin's to dry." A dissenting member of the congregation arose and said, "Pawsin, if Adam was de first man, den who-all made de palin's?" "Bre'er Simpkins, set down," said the parson disgustedly: "sech fool questions as yourn would upset any system of theology."

The Chicago, Rock Island, and Pacific Railroad will celebrate on October 10 the seventieth anniversary of the operation of its first passenger train.

A NEW BOOK which amazes

and thrills those who

have read its romantic story.

MOONLIGHT
SCHOOLS

By CORA WILSON STEWART

Chairman Illiteracy Commission of the National Education Association Tells for the first time the full story of how the appalling illiteracy of one Kentucky county prompted the author, then Supt. of the Rowan County Schools, to open a night school session for adults.

She expected an attendance of perhaps one hundred and fifty; twelve hundred came. From every part of the county, no matter how rough the road, or how hard the day's work had been, men came to be rid of the humiliation of having to make a mark instead of signing a name.

Before that campaign ended the illiteracy figures for Rowan County had dropped from 1,152 to 23, of whom only four were wilfully ignorant.

The movement spread to other counties, other States, a U. S. Commissioner of Education praised it in special bulletins, and the author has often been asked for a book telling the story of a movement so stimulating and of such profound importance to the welfare of the nation.

THIS MIND

By Bishop William Fraser McDowell These lectures were prepared and spoken with the desire that they might really assist members of the student body in making their decisions for lifework and service in the world to which they are so rapidly coming.

Price, net, $1.00, postpaid.

THE PREACHER AND THE PEOPLE By Bishop Francis J. McConnell Bishop McConnell has restricted the range of these lectures so that they deal only with the minister as a preacher. It is, therefore, an intensive rather than an extensive discussion. It is essentially a book for the younger men in the ministry, although it contains much that will prove profitable to those of larger and wider experience.

JESUS AS JUDGED BY HIS ENEMIES By James H. Snowden

It is a strong case that can be surrendered to the judgment of enemies. Jesus Christ triumphantly stands this test. He had his enemies in his earthly life, and they had many things to say about him and against him. More than three score of these sayings are scattered through the Gospels. They form a remarkable body of testimony that is of the greatest value.

Price, net, $1.75, postpaid.

THE DIVINE RIGHT OF DEMOCRACY By Clarence True Wilson

In this straightforward discussion Dr. Wilson reminds us of certain forgotten sources of our federal constitution; that Jesus Christ is the embodiment of democratic ideals; that we are, after all, a Christian nation; and he likewise presents certain phases of present-day conditions that should awaken the moral and political conscience of the nation.

A LITTLE BOOK OF SERMONS
By Lynn Harold Hough

A number of these sermons "grew out of particular occasions and were connected with particular places," as, for instance, the sermon on "The Ampler Puritanism," which was preached at Plymouth, England, at the Pilgrim Tercentenary Service, in September, 1920.

OUR PROTESTANT HERITAGE
By W. Wofford T. Duncan

In order to meet the claims of the Roman Catholic Church made through paid advertisements in the daily press, Dr. Duncan felt constrained to discuss in his pulpit certain questions in dispute between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism. The discourses made a profound impression at the time of their first public presentation, and are entirely worthy of the close attention of the more dispersed audience to which they are now addressed.
