There is some truth in the
creed. Wise men have always
realized and bemoaned the limi-

so far I have struck nothing

if by "filling the bill" the young
man means positive knowledge
of man's genesis and destiny he
is right for the preachers have
no .such knowledge to impart.
Alike upon preacher and par-
ishioner there presses down the
burden of this "unintelligible
world " and before the man who
preaches there looms up the
same impenetrable mystery. .

THE FOURTH OF JULY.
The citizen.' of our town
evidently believing that the
truest patriotism like the tru-
est religion is least noisy
made little outward demonstra
tion that the great and inemor-
jable Fourth of July had added
I another year to its anniversary.
Some lished others played
jball and others enjoyed the
momentary excitement while
! others found pleasure in the
quiet solitude of their homes
j The ball game in the after-
j noon was witnessed by a good-
i ly crowd of spectators the ar-
j ray of contestants which were
I dubbed "Kafiir Korners" and
! "Local Leaguers" tiuding
! friends alike among the good-
luatured indolent crowd. As
(the game progressed without
!any especial tinge of excitement
except the occasional score by
the "Leaguers" the thirsters
of excitemeut began to fear a
lack of interest iu the game. At
this juncture Oscar Smith in
order to relieve some of his
players of that self-conceit
which sometimes gains posses-
sion of amateur ball players
changed the position of his men
to their confident advantage and
iu reality. to their disadvantage
and here the "Kaffir Korners"
made a start . aud reaped a har-
vest. The score in a lew min-
utes was gaining alarming pro-
portions and the "Leaguers"
probably for the time being felt
a little awed. But through the
errors of several of the "Kaffir
Korners" at this. stage of the
game the tide was turned aud
