Ham, at the tabernacle, was pronounced by the Christian people as one of the greatest ?p!ritual treats they have yet had. It was purely a Bible sermon and was addressed to the unsaved. His explanations as to how to divide the Word of God and interpret the Scriptures was most illuminating. “You cannot take one part of the Bible, apart from any other part, and find out the wno*o ‘nth setout anything,*’ said the ev oigeiist in dung pfroot that the Bible was not filled with contradictious, as the atheist alleges. "There is nothing more danger* ous than the knowledge of just a few passages of scripture, learned at random here and there through the Book— just enough to put the whole in a false light,” said the speaker. It was the contention of the evangelist that the people were not students of the Bible as they were in olden days, which accounts, he believes, for the infidelity and lack of faith on the part of the present generation. “The old chimney corner saints of the long ago—my old grandfather and grandmother—knew more about the Bible, and could quote more scripture than the great majority of your D.

The sermon in the afternoon, “The Second Coming of Christ," was another powerful discourse, and one that held the audience at attention from first to last.

Aug. ll —Representatives from the Federal Board for Vocational Education have been sent to each of the district offices to explain new regulations in the administration of the vocational rehabilitation law. These regulations were revised to meet the requirements of recent changes in the law as amended by congress. By this recent legislation the benefits of the rehabilitation act are extended to ail persons disabled in the service —this, of course, includes those suffering with tuberculosis. The Federal Board is given the entire responsibility of determining the right to and need for vocational training of those persons whose disability prohibits a return to former occupations .and who are unable without training to carry oil in a gainful one. The support of the disabled man, with that of his dependents, is entirely the responsibility of the Federal Board during his period of training. The scale of payments made to men in training range from $80 a month, for the man with no dependents, to $150 for the married man with six or more children. A schedule of graduated payments is also made for the widower with children and for the man with dependent father and mother HYSONS. NOTH*..
