famous "fourteen points" ot President Wilson in complimen

fore he began reciting these height points,MUhat they had in
them the principles that will cure all the woes of the world
and then, in a manner thaf'will be long remembered by all
who heard them; he concluded his masterly-lecture by recit
ing these ''eight points" of th?; Sermon oa the Mount, as

earned his living by tent making. This he did m order that
he mio-ht nat be. as he said, debtor to any man. In modem
times the Friends, or Quakers, have no professional or paid
ministry. The same could also be said of many of the early
Free-will Baptists and Methodists, many of their ministers
working at some trade or other secular calling to support '
themselves and their famUies, and making no cnarge lor
their preaching. ;
As against the contention of the authority quoted above, ; B
t will doubtless be urged that the modern preacher must pre-1
are himstif lor the ministry by a long course of schooling, j
abreast of the times, must
prepare hurfaermons and attend to his pastoral duties. It he
to dahis best work no tnougnt oi temporal
fiimaelf or hw family should be allowed to interfere with it.
f ' In answer to this, however, it may be said that the work
f the preacher is spiritual, not intellectual or temporal.: It
it amounts to anything it is the work of the spirit who will
are for it. Education will not hurt any preacher, provided
he does not come to depend upon it and forget the source
from which alone he must draw much of his kriowledge, and
all of huHnspiration and spiritual power., Tie idea of Peter
or Paul going for instruction; inspiration and power to some
old musty volume of the past or to some theological college is
unthinkable. Instead, they opened their souls by prayer and
pure living to the Spirit .ot the living God, and received from
Him all that made them disciples, apostles and evangelists.
iiuch of the drudgery of the modern preacher is not only
useless, it isr spiritually. deadening. Less intellectual drudg
ery and more of the spirit is what .is needed in the ministry
"of today. No man is a preacher worthy of the nJme, unless
h lives in such nearness to God that he can receive front
Hinv inspiration, power and truth to give to those, Under his
ministration-i Let:n0 minister forget thatit ia not he that
speaketh', but' the Spirit of the Father which speaketh in
himltiibehot so, his words are but "sounding brass and
jinkling, cymbals." y' '

A CALL FOR A NON-PROFESlONAL CLERGY,
' I . (Copyrighted by the San Jose Mercury) : V
One of the most remarkable contributions to the relig-J
ious literature oi tne present; year is an article in tne juon
don Evening Standard, by Dean W. R. Inge, of St. Paul's
Cathedral in that city; in which the distinguished clergyman
appears to advocate supplementing the labors of the profes
sional ministry by the ordination of numbers of lay or sec
ular clergy Z Indeed; some of his suggestions seem to look to
ward entirely supplanting the professional clergy byi these
lay ministers. ; Such a revolutionary suggestion coming from
so high an. authority could, not fail to attract wide-spread
attention, and is,, at least, worthy of the most serious con
sideration.' y : ' v -.';-,.;.;;T . u
' The subject he discusses can best be introduced in some
of the Dean's own words "In the first place.", he says, "the
whole system of public worship was designed for state of
society when very, few persons .read and very many were Un
able to read. -Now we have become a reading nation. We
absorb our intellectual food through the eye more - than
through the ear and the parson is often no better instructed
tnan memDers oi .nis congregation. : ine. metapnor ox. a
shepherd and his sheep. has," he says, "become absurd" ';i . '
. ' For some time ithas been a matter of wonderment to
.' many people that the clergy do not make larger use of the
press to convey theirf message to the people. But to convey
these messages through the printed page evclusively, and viri
.tually abolish preaching as the" Dean almost seems to sug-
gest, is quite another matter. Such a thing would, we be
lieve, be a great loss to religion and to the world, '
It should be borne in mind that religion, if it amounts
to.any thing to one, is not a matter of cold intellectuality; not
a matter of thought or belief or opinion merely. It is a soul
attitude or action: a reiieious sentiment, purpose, feeling,
.that seldom is created, bv a cold. intellectual process. The
impetus for it comes, so the Bible teaches and so many if
not all religious people believe, from the Holy Spirit of God
. straight to the souls of men through inspiration, it is cer
tain, at least, that this subtle influence can be conveyed from
one soul to another by a more or less personal presence or
contact. It is not. the words that the spiritual man utters
that affect others spiritually with whom he conies in per
gonal (contact so much as it is the feeling, the emanation, the
inspiration that goes out to them through his individuality
or life. This it is that makes the real preacher, the true
svangelist. Any so-called : preacher, who -has none of this
'spiritual power is at best only a spiritual bungler, a juggler
of woicds, and to abolish him might not be s$cb a great loss
to the world.? But not so In the case of those with a real,
spiritual powef ,. 5uch should be given the, largest opportu
nity to influcnf c.rr.cn -by their personal strength and pres
ence, as well ain the printed word. . Alas, that there are so

.' "There would be several advantages, in this change. The
church .would be set free from the endless anxieties and hu
miliations of begging for money. ' We should be rid of the
clerical professionalism which is fostered in the theological
colleges and which erects a barrier between clergy and laity.
The ministers, being engaged in secular callings, would have
i'.e layman's point of view, though they would, of course, be
c ; osen as being earnestly religious persons. The rivalries of
j '...rioua denominations would vanish, and the sects them
; Edves would quickly and spontaneously fuse. The public
; would feel, as they-io not at present, that religion was their
