Old and New Tearft Thoughts" is

"Some people decry the custom, of
lmlding special services, keeping 'mid'
night vigils, and are cynical about New
Tear resolutions But they are in the
minority STid in the wrong. : The poets
have expressed for' tis that emotion
which possesses our-' hearts - when w

'There's a new foot on the fioort my

" The year 1st going, let him gow

The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,

The Passing Moments.
Sucri 'services lead to retrospection
nml introspection, ; and often open the
iloor fur hope. For the shutting of the
door of the past, and the opening of
a now year offers a place and hour in
which, to make a beginning for nobler
things. , . . ' .
"One's : earthly career has been lik
ened to a palace of few or many cham
lfi's. For each year there la a cham
ber which is plain and unadorned "when
entered at the beginning of the year,
and which, at the year's end,, is vacated
by its tenant,, who has placed upon its
walls his Vceord of the year. These
ample walls are sometimes embellished
end beautified with the record of noble
deeds, pure thoughts and high aspira
tions; 'while sometimes they are dis
colored and Watched with a. record of
selfishness and dishonor .
"We stand at the beginning of the
year on the threshold of another chm
her in this vast palace of life-.. What
record shall the walls bear when the
lHst sands of the last hour of the year
i;ii)4 have slipped through the neck of
Opportunity's Knock. -f
StaiHilng on the threshold -of a hew
year and a new opportunity, let us make
this jear's record better than that of
uny previous year.;. It can be done. The
pjt has muny suggestions .to. offer
, which should enuble us to improve. Pat
rick Henry said; 'I have but one lamp
by which my feet are guided and that
is the lamp of experience.' That lamp
is not to be despised. With its help
we may cease even the failures of the
past to contribute to our success In
the future. .
, "Strive then ' this year, as never "be
fore for the mastery of self: reach out
after a larger intellectual life; , deter
mine to build up your body by healthful
i-scrclse: enlarge your spiritual life by
devout communion with God; read some
of the best books; encourage good causes
by participating m their efforts, and en-
-deavor to put in daily practice the pre
cepts of our Divine Master, especially
that golden one: "Whatsoever ye -would
that men should do unto you, do ye
even so unto them.' "
four . ehort addresses stiould follow on
these themes: - ."The .Work We Have
in f land," , ''The' Obstacles Before t!."
"The .Divine-. Helper," Our Individual
Need as Workers Together With Him."
Those themes jvcre discussed "briefly
by Judge Caples, Dr. Cline. Kev F, U
Young and Rev. W; H. Selleck. , respec
tively. .. Each, of -these--' speakers had
evidently made careful and discriminat
ing preparation, and in each - cane a
stirring "address was -given. The audi
ence, which' was interested and "f re
sponsive, shared in song and, prayer with
great spirit. Among the ministers pres
ent and taking part in the services are
Dr. Marvin. iRev.-W. F. Harned and Rev.
S. E. Alemtnger. The last half -hour
was spent in prayer and personal recon
secratlon 'to the Christian life. .vDr, Tal
tott. pastor of the church, had general
charge -of- tho meeting. At 12:05, the
benediction was pronounced. -:;',!'
BEYOND 5 HITCHCOCK, "
' , REEDER THINKS
. The outcome of the I4 Grande la'nd of
fice matter, in the opinion of former
Speaker of the .House L.-B. Beeder, who
has Just com to Portland from Pendle
ton to -engage in the practice of ; law, is
a mere matter, -of conjecture.' ?
"At first," said Mr. Beeder, "I did not
think Au E Thomson would, be, rein
stated ;rs receiver, but now from the torn
things have taken , I do not know what
the result will be.
" "It is. ' simply up ' to the president
Thomson .Is In Washington now and the
question of his retention, I believe, is
clear out ; of Secretary Hitchcock's
hands." :"H.'. -j " -f ' ,-. ,; .'.' j - ',"
Mr, Reeder is of the opinion that
agitation .among etockmen for a change
n the ; land laws ; may -; have caused
Thomson's ease to be slewed in a new
light and the final outcome may not be
decided until after the national conven
tlon lii this city this month.
'Eastern Oregon is the home of a greut
many sheep and stockralsers," continued
Mr.-Beeder, "and the attendance at the
coming; meeting of the national associa
tion is going to firing a great many vial
tors from the Blue Mountain district,"
Eev. A. J. Montgomery's Sermon.
Hev. Andrew J. Montgomery conducted
watch night services in Third Presbyter
ian church. He said, in part:.
"Three years ago the Presbyterian gen
eral assembly appointed a committee on
evHtigellstlc work, of which John II. Con
verse, president of the Baldwin Locomo
tive works. Is chairman. ' This committee
has powers of suggestion and adviee
only. From ; the first it has labored to
stimulate the . evangelistic spirit in - the
church. With a view to securing this,
summer conferences have been held at
Winona Lake, Ind., conferences with pas
tors and workers held In most of, the
large renters of population and a vast
amount of literature distributed where It
would do the most good. -
"Recently the committee suggested a
thiee months' evangelistic campaign,' to
be carried on In the. manner that com
mended itself to each church. It was
urrcd that this campaign begin on New
1'ear's eve : with a watch meeting, and
continue without cessation until April L
The responses to this suggestion of the
committee are certainly astonishing.
' From what we know in Portland, 'at
this far-off distance from the Brest ten-
tern, it would seem that, the church was
' never so- stirred. A remarkably- large
nnmber of . ' Presbyterian ,? churches . has
ntered into this simultaneous evangelis
tic movement; In general terms the plan
is this: January' is to be given to prayer
and preparation. February Is to be de
voted to pergonal -work with Individual
In ' March meetings are to be held
T.:herever the, way Is opened. . ' .
"Of course, H Is to be understood that
V this plan t Is not rigid as iron. Each
iburch will do .that which seems beat to
It under- its peculiar circumstances.. The
watch meeting Is the first step in this
campaign to reach1 the unsaved, The
; work will probably be carried on quietly
And systematically, t The professional
evangelist Is likely to be uninvited so far

- taeular and the bizarre will not enter
