One cannot help but wonder
why there are so many churches
of various denominations. Why
should there bo diirerent denom
inations in church work, any
way? One rcliirion is all that
Christ taucht, and he preached
no varioty or diirerent modes of
procedure. It would seem that
if mombers of the diirerent
churches wore truly Christians
they could assemble together in
love and unity; under one church
edifice. Ministers will preach
co-operation and unity of pur
poio, yet they do not advocate
the same principles when it
comes to denominational relig
ion. It would be infinitely bet
tor and much more economical if
the diirerent denominations could
join together, lay aside mode of
procedure and church creeds,
and unite in the laudable pur
pose of saving souls. It should
not be necessary for one who has
ducided to become a Christian to
hesitate over which church he
should join. Religion should
have only one Hag, and there is
no reason for disagreement. It
does seem folly to erect a church
for a hundred or so individuals,
when one largo edillco would
servo for all. 11 tlio churches
are not willing to unite, how
can the religious inclined con
sistently preach eo-operntion and
commonness ol purpose tor otli

The Best Light
At The Lowest Cost
ELECTRIC LIGHT is the most suitable for homes,
offices, shops and other places needing light.
Electricity can be used in any quantity, large
or small, thereby furnishing any required
amount of light. Furthermore, electric lamps
can be located in anyplace, thus affording any
desired distribution or light.
No other lamps possess these qualifications, there
fore it is not surprising that electric Jamps are
rapidly replacing all others in modern establishments.
