blest, there is a crisis in the Forma
tion of character and in the bent of
disposition. It comes from many
; sources and from some which on
the surface are apparently trivial
It may be a book, a speech, a ser
mon, a great misfortune or a burst
of prosperity. But the result is the
same a sudden revelation to our
selves of. our secret purpose and a
recognition of our perhaps long
shadowed but now masterful convictions.
Noticing one of her small boys nib
bling at some luncheon in school one
day the teacher called the culprit to
the desk. .."You know," she began
sternly, "thai you must not eat during
lesson hours! . Now as a punishment
you must stand here In front of the
cIsbs and eat every bit of tt."
The small boy did as be was bid, a
curious grin overspreading his face.
The teacher misunderstood that grin
until the last scrap had disappeared,
when from the class a small voice
walled in tearful accents:

I have never united myself to any
church because I have found difficulty
in giving thy assent without mental
reservation to the long, complicated
statements of Christian doctrine which
characterize their articles of belief
and confessions-of faith. Whenever
any church will Inscribe over itsltnr
as Its sole qualification for member
ship the Saviour's condensed statement
of the substance of both law and gos
pel. "Thou shall love the Lord thy
God with all thy heart, and with all
thy soul, and with all thy mind, and
thy neighbor as thyself," that church
will I join with all my heart and all
my soul. Abraham Llncolb.
