The text was from John in. 38th verse a other men Laboured be Aro entered into their the Savior uttered these words to his disciples when the result of his own teachings to tie woman at Syc Hars Well began to be seen. He wished to stimulate the disciples to Effort to show them that they were Only joint workers in a great harvesting that they were the continues in the work began by others. He did not even claim As altogether his own the evident results of his words to the woman at the Well who became a missionary. He Kik a that others had Laboured before he came in the flesh. He with divine humility put himself on a level with the the passage teaches us How to estimate spiritual Effort and our debt to the past. Our lord noticed All that had been Don a for him and tightly estimated it a a others had he a lid not say others had done a Little but a a they privileges come to us All in Sulci an easy Way that we Are Apt to forget at what Cost Tivey have been obtained. Continuing or. Mccormack said a if we who worship in Sulci a Cli urch As this look Back we shall see that behind the Noble ecu who have filled its pastorate since its erection there were Many who worked with them worked by suggesting itis iut a worked together in the nucleus of a congregation Ami a sunday school. And Many More worked before them by Tongue and pen by purse and influence by suffering Ami loss. Ihu a a men May lie now in forgotten Graves but they once Laboured and their work is not forgotten. We Honor them for what they a lid. The debt that we owe to them and to our divine master we can never repay. The minister who Cau he unmoved at the thought of what lie owes to others is not worthy to fill the office. All Honor to those who have Laboured and into w Hose labors to have entered. A Christ shows us in what spirit any new work is to Lee undertaken. Prospective influences Ramlu r than immediate Are to he Cotis in Lerey i.

To Iii aka a sensation a splurge May give Brief Success but bring final failure. Success is often in proportion to the struggle. Christianity never occupied a Moro prominent position in the Eye of the world that it does today. The Church too is on its Mettle. The Calm tries As much As the storm. Today the Cli urch must take account of the tidal wave of democracy. The Church must get into line it has to guide for people now think for themselves.

Among its members were found a deep seated conviction and a a a Ouraga Ous adherence to All that tin Church stood 1 for.

A Short session of court was held on saturday morning with his Honor judge Evans and associates Blee Aud Wagner on the Bench for the purpose of hearing argument on the application to admit Peter Dietrich to Hail. The application was refused. William Kase West of counsel for 1 tin defense led off in argument. He made a Strong plea asking that the defendant be admitted to Hail until All a formality relating to a new trial be complied with. This would give tin defendant an Opportunity to attend to it it his business Aud personal affairs which have been necessarily neglected. He cited cases where persons convicted of murder in the second degree have been admitted to bail even when there was no recommendation to mercy. Hon. H. M. Hinckley followed strenuously opposing tin admitting of the def Daut to bail declaring that such a course would be a travesty of Justice. The matter he said was purely in the discretion of the court. Suteno it said was suspended merely by reason of the application for a new trial Ami lie cited authorities to show that in parallel cases bail was refused. Or. West in conclusion took the floor and stated that it was the Universal custom in neighbouring counties to admit the defendant to bail when a verdict of murder in the so con a degree is a rendered. The court made the following order Commonweal i is. Peter murder. Guilty of murder in. The second Ergec. Application to admit the defendant to it Hail Peu Diug motion for new trial.
