THE SANTIAM MININGiREGION
In the course of an article in the Saturday: Evening Post
of yesterday. Floyd W. Parsons' writing under the heading.
Questions That Science Will Answer," says: -
r-: Our. consumption of raw- materials is, going on
at such an enromous rate that even a brief survey of
the situation uncovers astounding truths. We have
used up more coal In the last thirteen years than in
the century before, more iron in a decade than in
the previous ; 100 years, and more COPPER and
zinc in ten years than in all the years before that,

sumption oroilthroughout the world since 1914 has
totaled more thin in all the previous years .since oil -t
was first discovered. V Our, petroleum reserves will
be well on the road to depletion in a dozed year3,and ;
Parke Channing, the eminent coppex expert says ;; '
that 'unless new deposits of the red metal are found ;
we shall be threatened IN FIFTEEN YEARS with '
a shortage of copper.' The world's resources of this

, i 1 A MAN'S RELIGION
'(Copyrighted by the San Jose Mercurv. ,: A 1
' 1 The conception of religion which the ordinary individual
has is apt to be quite superficial; To many people religion Is
little more than the observance; of certain rites, forms and
ceremonies. To others it means merely an intellectual con
i ccption of God and spiritual truth as set forth in some creed
, or dogma and a public profession of one's belief in this as
necessary to salvation from damnation in the world to come.
To comparatively few people is religion the reaching out of
the spirit of man for God, a constant desire for His spirit
and life,' . and a continually increasing knowledge and con
sciousness of His presence; an inner experience which trans
forms the life, enlarges and broadens the vision, changes the
motives and aspirations and 'brings man into "a new heaven
and a new earth.'! ,, r N ; ;; , .. ;- :
Although one's intellectual belief about God, the here
after or any other thing or things religious may not- does not
constitute any part of his religion, still his ideas about these
things are a very perfect" indication of hi3 inner life and
quite generally reveal his4 ambitions, his ideals and the things
that mostly absorb his thoughts and life. The future "happy
hunting ground" of the Indian, with its plentiful supply of
game, is not more expressive of his ideals and soul condition
than is the fancied heaven of the mammon worshipper with
its streets of gold, its gates of pearl and its walls of jasper
a perfect revelation of his life, ambition and ideals.
"God' I3 Ithe same yesterday, today and forever." I Of
course jneither He nor immortality, nor the reality of the
spiritual world, nor the laws that govern the universe and
mankind are changed or affected by the ideas of man in re
gard to any of them. And our ideas of these things grow
with our growth and enlarge, with the enlargement of our
knowledge. Neither the "Great Spirit" of the savaee nor the
merely superman gods of the old Greek and Romanno, not
even the Jehovah of j wrath and inexorable vengeance, ! the
conception of the ancient Jew; nor the provincial and partial
Lroa oi jtne modern junker Prussian none of these expresses
the idea of God entertained by the real follower of the Prince
of Peace. He has grown beyond all these primitive ideas of a
Supreme Being. He knows God as an all-pervading spirit; a
constant presence; the source of all power and -wisdom, free
irom aii semDiance 01 human passion, selfishness and injus
tice and full of love and tenderness: the perfect embodiment
of all spiritual strength, beauty and sweetness, ; .,
Yet it is most important that we all come as near! as
possible to correct ideas concerning God and Hi3 attributes,
the future life and things religious, because our conception of
these things i largely determines our ideals and has a most
powerful influence in the moulding of our characters, and the
shaping of our lives. sThe Scripture declares that "as a man
thinketh in his heart,so is he," and that "we ? are changed
into the image of what we gaze at." , , '- i f
; The man :' who, believes that God is not 'above feelincr
anger .like the undeveloped human being willcertainly , npt
make any very strenuous efforts to overcome anger in; him
self. . .The man who has no clear conviction about there being
a 1 uture lire could hardly be expected to be self-denvme and
3elf-sacrificingl The motto of his life is likely to be, "Let us
eat, drink ; and be merry, for , tomorrow we die.'? One
wno Deueves that ail of his sins can' be quite readily forgiven
and the effect of them upon his soul blotted out wilr yield
more readify to temptation than will one who believes with
St. Paul, that "God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man
soweth, that shall he also reap." r r "

the world, who have i most helped it to achieve its real

Bishop Manning, ,of New . Yorkj,'
