September 7th, 1906. OBSERVATIONS. A man is not angry that the dog at his heels does not understand his business Or domestic anxieties and troubles. The people among whom he moves are often as far from under- standing his conditions as the uog at his heels, but he expects understanding irom them and is, therefore, unreasonable. Frequent wars, the national debt, the im- perfect administration of the Poor Laws municipal defects, the incapacity of Parlia- ment the stupidity of governments, do not teach anything to the people who are always crying out for increased national action in all sorts of directions. Th0 only justification for national action is that governments can sometimes do badly what, otherwise cannot be done at all—make war, pass laws, supply coinage, carry letters, manage railways, ad- minister laws, and provide means for national defence. I do not know enough to understand what lie world means, but I know sufficient to en- able me to see that the world is wonderful, I and every discovery of science reveals that it is more wonderful than was thought.

Whitehead CI egg said Chat spiritualism or spiritism was of the devil, and it was pure deception. He would not be surprised if there were a large number of angels of the Lord and service. There were angels of the Lord and angels of the devil. He be ieved it was a fact that when death was approaching the eyes of the dying person might be opened. He once knew a class leader who carried on a conver- sation with a deceased classmaflp who bad passed away several years before. Proceed- ing, Mr. Clegg said "I have known a cas3 where a man and his wife had a son who was missing on the battlefield. They had prayed -that they might know his fate, and the mother's grief was so gileat that it had affected her oves'erht a^rt she was likely to become blind. She to'd me that one night there came into her room her boy. He re- proved her fop weeping and told her how happy lie was and that he was in congenial company. He was contented and told his mother to dry her tears, for he was in a place ,wlwm she would wish him to be. At the same time the vision appeared to the husband husband at work." Mr. Clegg added "If our; eyes were opened, we should see many of the things we fear and we should not be distressed; we should be contented." In conclusion he vzyed that through prayer lay the way of WtoSverance from any fear of the hereafter. FOOTBALL HONOl/Ii.—Mr. W.
