We left Merlin, on the Southern Pa
cific, Monday morning, a suitcase with
Fpare apparel making a prosaic detour
by parcel post to Gold Beach, our desti
nation at the river's mouth, by way of
Kugene and Marshfield. We reduced
our knapsacks to the simplest essen
tials, though it's wonderful the way
our needs diminished in Importance
with every mile afoot.
Merlin is fairly in a mountain pass,
and our road, a well-ballasted highway
after crossing Jump-off Joe Creek, soon
brought us to the river, which we were
to follow, with delight and wonder for
elx days. Some thought of Its material
value as a source of power and electric
energy through these lower reaches
would obtrude upon us at-times; its fall

Real Progress Defined.
The clear and plain words of our
text Indicate vision, wisdom, character
and achievement. To see and to know,
to be and to do. are so essential to
life, and the well-being of the human
family, that we can never remedy Con
ditions, and make the necessary' prog
ress, without these corners to the four
square life offering room to God. and
making it possible for us to travel "the
path of the righteous which is a the
dawning light that shineth more and
more unto the perfect day." We need
av sixth sense-vision Just a much,
and In some respects mora, than the
human body needs natural eyes.
When the human race, or any part
of It, is blind to the best things, or
does not look In the right direction, or
does not look ahead far enough, it is
bound to perish. So, also, with insti
tutions. o also, with individuals.
A wise man said. "Where there Is no
vision, the people case off restraint." '
That settles It. Then they go to
doom, in spite of the frantic prayers of
some among them who are more con
cerned about having God on their side
than they are about being on God's
side. In such instances, even prayer
Is an Impious mockery, or a vain super
stition. Their belief is but the per
petuation of the antiquated conception
of a tribal God. They need to be
thunder-struck of truth and to know
that they cannot, with impunity, mock
God. Neither can they break the rela
tionship between sowing and reaping.
Dying nations have their dreams while
their very prayers fall with a dull thud
upon doom and their record for history
will dolefully demonstrate that might
does not make right. Wherever men
make history without the God-given
vision, they make history without God
In it and then It belongs to that type
described by Carlyle who, in his time,
looked back and said: "At th bottom
there is no perfect history. All past
centuries have rotted down and have
gone out confusedly dull and quiet."
This was due either to the absence of
vision or the imperfections and limi
tations of vision.

All this, however, is but one side of

In our mechanical and materialistic
age we are not putting enough thought
into llie. we are Intensely active, but
are not sufficiently thoughtful. Some

race, but the danger is thru the vkUon
Itself may slip away from us, unless
we are willing to put Into practice
that which we really know. Most of
us really know so much better than
we actually do. We are wise only to
the extent, or degree, of our good prac
tices, and not merely In our mental
garniture, or Intellectual orientation,
our problem is to be wise to the ex
tent of our best vieion, and when we
try to solve this problem God will help
us. It Is God who worketh in us to
will and to work for his good pleasure
In making us what we ought to be.
Divine Character Greatest Asset.
Vision and wisdom, with the co-operation
of God, enter Into a great con
structive principle of life, and men and
women of excellent worth become the
product of this constructive principle.
Character, built by Almighty God, Is
his own most valuable asset in human
life. It affords centrality for his spir
itual investments. It offers the means
for the progrees of God. He is always
ready to do greater things for us when
he finds persons upon whom he can
depend. Character is not for orna
mental purposes. Its stable and dis
tinctive qualities give firmness and
dependablenees to all who are willing
to be what they ought to be. It re
quires a great deal of courage moral
courage will, and intellectual intre
pidity to do some things very neces
sary in modern life; but one man. pos
sessed of such a spirit of real heroism,
is worth more than a whole mob of
these dexterou stdesteppers.
"Turn not to the right hand and not
to the left." When God can depend
upon his man. because of his firmness
of character and his moral courage, he
can then relate that life to his own
eternal progress. Something quite
worth while is bound to come to pass
'hen we are altogether available to
God. Every epoch in the history of
humanity began in this way. That
which will mark the greatest achieve
ment in the coming days will be the de
liverance of mankind from evil all
manner of evil when sin itself shall
become an episode In the history we
are to make through Jesus Christ, our
Lord, and Jesus shall deliver a re
deemed ,and subdued world to God.
"Remove thy foot from evil." ThfcS
step will not be an Incidental thing.
It will be neither backward nor to thl
side, nor to that, but forward through
the process of spiritual evolution.
Vision. wisdom. character and.
acnlevement fit us .for the next step
In that progress toward which all the
good Of the foregoing ages has been
but preparatory. The centuries have
been excavating for the foundation
work. Science, educatio'n and real re
ligion have been busy here and there,
doing greater things than most per
sons have supposed. They have been
gathering material for a new order of
life now about to be ushered in. Cer
tain forms of government are yet to
fall, the broken relationships among
nations may -never be mended, but the
coming generations, after old hate, and
war, and Jealousy, and strife, and moral
Ignorance have forever passed away,

In our day and generation we cannot
realize the highest ideal for the con
ditions of life. It Is best for us not
to try to show how far we can Jump
in our efforts to progress; or to run
to madness in our abnormal moods; or
to propose schemes and measures born
of impulse and folly; or to hand our
most Important affairs over to those
who do not think. Just here Is one of
our dilemmas. Chimerical schemes are
obstructing the way of real progress.
All sorts of person are advocating all
sorts of things. The dust and smoke

us to reach it. even though we could

It Is quite sufficient for us Just now
that we be ready to take the next step,
and that we do take that step. It

world. Warring nations have taken the
backward step and are spelling the de

punctuating their ghastly sentence
with dead bodies; but after all this
work of hell Is dead there will be
enough persons left on earth to help
in bringing In the new era. and the

But pessimism Is only the afflicted
offspring of a diseased Imagination and
a superficial observation. God's prophet

no mud on the inside bottom of his
eye. If we are asked, "Is there such a

our reply Is: "Yes." , If we are asked.
"Can It take the next step?" our reply
is: "Yes." Many thing which men do
not usually regard as being of religion,
or In any way related to It. are, or may
be, none the less factors in it prog
res. Religion ha always been ill this
world. It has fought many hard bat
tles. It has already com a long dis

livered from the womb of eternity by
bis omnipotent hand. It was placed
upon earth for growth and service.
Ignorance, bigotry and superstition
tried to grab it by the throat. Jesus
Christ rescued it and personalized It
and gave It a new meaning. Prophets
and kings hushed their notes before the
music floating over the Judean hills,
but soon discord entered, and men
put the life of the new expression ot

Evil Moil Be Attacked.
The religion of today, not of today
in Its origin, but In its existence and
expression, must become more aggres
sive in its attack upon all form of
evil. It has been too mild and con
servative. It has vainly tried to be so
respectable that It has failed In Its
culpable arialocr&cy. It has bought
too many kid gloves, and not felt the
nails in its hands and feet, the spear In
its side' and rtie thorn on Its brow, as
It should. Hence it has not shown
I puissance in It greatest achieve
ments possible. We are bound
by all the ties of God and hu
manity to say to anything and every
thing that hurts, or harms, or ruins
human life. "I have serious business
with you. and It means moral war to
the bitter end."
In this connection, religious men and
women must be known at the ballot
ox. Ballot count far more than bul
lets when rightly used. The emascu
lated patriot must return to his man
hood and our women can help save
the day. and win In a cause where the
moral Issue la greater than air others.
Our religion must take the next step In
becoming more practical. In taking
souls alive from evils that kill we are
under obligations to furnish the oppo
site, positive good. We must show men
and women the better way. Our first
business 1 not to get persons Into

may find heaven In themselves, here

Our greater business In to make re

feel that they have little or no use for
our churches, may yet be brought to
see that they cannot live as they should

conditions about us and moves forward

The next step In religion needs to
be characterised by a greater solidar

nominational competition is a disgrace.
We are already beginning to pay th
penalty of It her in Oregon, as rs be

tition. In the name of religion, must

Then God can and will bless us. He
will bless our common work as never
before.- . Jews and Christians. Roman
Catholics and Protestant can find
many humanitarian, philanthropic, and

share In common. The things which
divide us are not as great as those
whirh can unit ua in one great serv
ice to human being. The view through
a sectarian keyhole is not a good and
rewarding a that which w have, or
may have, in the great open field of
some common toll for the betterment
of th human race.
We ran never feed the hungry soul
of men merely by displaying our
ecclesiastical tableware. Let us have
liberty in non-essential, but unity In
essential. The great, unfinished task
of religion demand solidarity on the
part of all religious forces, including
the enlistment of many for service
who are not now in any of the churches.
It Is time for religion to mean busi
ness hlg business for God and man.
and this calls for solidarity.
Let us make the following conclu
sions, ajid emphasize th following
facts: The human family is capable of
being saved from all that spoils or
ruins life. Despair can never beoomo
universal. Neither can it touch the
bottom of hope. All the providences
of God are ready to contribute to the
progress of man. while God is waiting
to take the next step with us. All the.
foregoing axes have prepared the way
for the new era about to come to pass.
Humanity cannot, however, make the
necessary progress and match new oc
casions with adequate duties without
tho best expression of religion.
The entire human fumily. as far as
possible, needs to see things as they
are, and then know- enough, b wise
enough, to do that which needs to be
done. Character, the character of In
dividuals, the character of nations,
must furnish the equivalent for the un
finished task of n-ligion. Beyond all
catastrophes, beyond all destruction of
human life, beyond greed and selfish
ness, beyond ail that ovight not to be.
there will yet be found men and women
enough to fit into their places that
they may make their lives contribute
to a new order and a new epoch in the
progress of God and man.
Finally, this Is a very personal mat
ter, where every one of us should know
and have that preparedness of life
which will make us ready to do our
part toward this divine progress. Many
Of us are not now ready. We know,
