' - Even preachers hit the nail on
the head occasionally. Dr. Bell
tad an inspiration yesterday and
managed to hit the fact that is
at the basis of the world's pres
ent tendency to . disregard the
church. In casticatiner neerlic-ent.
. members of his congregation for
their tendency to let trifles inter
fere, with their attendance at
service, in effect he said that
nine-tenths of the church peo
ple use the church simply as a
matter of convenience, and as
he held aloft a beautiful blossom,
glorious in all its , full-blown
beauty, he likened the people be
fore him to the antithesis of that
- !. l .1 a . i ...

beauty nor fragrance.
This is a fact that the world
notes. The world is not neces
sarily coldly critical, but it is in
different, and - indifferent only
because it is unable to see be
tween the lives of nrofssor
Christians and the ordinarily re
spectable citizen a difference
that is in any sense markedly in
favor of the former. The non
Christian, or the man outside the

any higher ideals, any stricter
adherence to right in the' ordin
ary dealings of life and he sees
no sacrifice that he himself is
not equally willing to make. He
sees in the so-called Christian
life the same self-assertion mani
fest ; in ' the non-christian, and
the same disposition to forge
ahead by any means that may
be legitimate in law, though
lacking in moral concept The
man without the church finds
the man within apparently as
self -centered as himself, as lack
ing in human sympathy, in ex
panding love, in ! the humility
that was the greatest feature of
the , Christ life, in the fervor
that should and ever does mark
the activity of men whose lives
are genuinely given to a specific
cause. So far as the non-christian
is able to observe, the aver
age church congregation is made
up of splendid people who' have
formed the habit of meeting at
the church more or less frequent
ly just as convenience rather
than genuine love of the cause

suggests, ne does not see in
the church congregation or the
average Christian life, anything
that acts as a magnet to draw
him into the fold. Their spirit
is not more responsive in any
sense, they give their money no
more generously or less grudg
ingly,, their speech and action
does not give the ordinarily in
telligent observer any evidence
of a faith that removes moun
tains, that enabled Peter to walk
on the water, that sustained
Daniel in the lions' den; neither
does one often see manifest that
spirit the Savior demanded of
j.t- ' -i j - ,
uie ncn young -man wno was
told to scatter his all among the
poor and follow Him.
' And because it is unable to see
the evidences the world is taught
it should look for, the non-christian
remains indifferent to" the
church. It sees nothing really
vital and living, nothing that is
really loving or lovable, within
the church; the world regards
the I average congregation as a
composite of excellent people of
splendid intent, an - organization
accomplishing good results here,
there and elsewhere in a desul
tory way, but cold careless and
lacking real conception of the
compassion Christ had,, for the
world. " Whenever the church
does become as a blossoming rose
in full fragrance. . when the
church gives evidence ; that - it
actually knows Him and knows
Him well enough to be filled
with the spell of his1 compassion
for the world, then "will the
world flock to the church, but
until such a time comes, until
the world can see that serving
Him the six days of the week
and keeping the Sabbath day holy
is really first with the Chri stain,
rather than a casual perform
ance lacking vitality until that
time comes will mere De an in
difference on the part of the
world and an increasing ten
dency away from the church.
And all the preaching of dead
preachers to dead congregations
will never stem the tide. The
world must see that the- church
is interested in the , world, just
as He who, gave His .only be
gotten son that the world might
be saved. ? -;. - .

ing on the Streets except in close
company of the owner under
penalty of death.
The Big
: Despite the fact that the as
sessor found but one dog in Ben
ton county last year, and the
added fact that Chief Wells gave
away and otherwise disposed of
seventy-five or more this spring,
it is certain that Corvallis has
entirely too many dogs. The
evidence of this is found in each
new cement walk laid, in 6ach
newly made lawn or parking, in
the discoloration of every column
and corner of Main street busi
ness houses, in noisy fights wit
nessed daily on Second street
and in colonies of dogs found too
frequently on the streets.- If a
dog is worth Jiaving it is worth
keeping at home; . if it ; is . not
worth keeping at home it is not
worth the toleration of the pub
lic. Instead ? of providing Booster Girls,

Why Salves Fail While a Simple Liquid

of Cures.

It is now thoroughly establish
ed among the best medical au
thorities that eczema, is purely a
skin "disease, due to a germ, and
curable only through the skin.
It is not a blood disease at all; in
fact- thousands of people suffer
with skin disease and are per-;
fectly healthy otherwise, f and
thereby prove they have no dis
eased blood.
Smeary salves cannot reach the
germs because they do not pene
trate the skin. The only way to
reach the germs is by means of
a penetrating liquid.
Such a liquid can be obtairied
by simply mixing ordinary oil of -
wintergreen with thymol, glycer
fna and rvrVipr Vienlinof floent.s
This compound, known as D. D,
stantly and the cures all appear
to be permanent. In fact, it took
of mires, case after
case, before the best scientific
authorities were convinced of the
absolute merit (of this remedy.
D. D., D. Prescription kills the.
germs in the itching skin. Its
effect is seen within one minute
nfW the first annlication. We
especially recommend D. D. D
