WHAT SMITH HEARD AT CHURCH Editor Lethbrldge Herald: Dear Sir:-With your kind permission I wish to occupy a little space in your valuable paper, to tell what Smith heard at church, and what he would prefer to hear. Being persuaded to go to the Morris Theatre to hear a discourse on the tTeedom of the will, by the Rev. Mr. Watson, 1 was on my best behaviour and listened intently to his exposition. In a half apologetic manner the preacher told us that this sermon was requested by a certain individual: 1 thought of Paul who conferred not with llesh an-d blood, but who spoke the oracles of God. at God's request: there must be a little difference in their source of supply for subjects to speak upon. The i.Teacher did what politicians say ol' a loan who is neither for nor against-"straddled the fence." lie showed us the fruits produced by both schools of thought. "Calvinistic and Americanism," and eulogised both. He pioceeded to dispose of the rigidity of logic, by endeavoring to prove In his own way that something was and wasn't, is and isn't, that you're free and you're not free-you're a slave and you're not a slave. He illustrated this by saying that what you call black is noi black, and wrhat you call white is not white; it is grey. May the Lord grant us a little more grey matter that we may recognise things as they are. not what they appear to be. lie left the freedom of the will where he found it, hemmed in by the forces of habit-Inability and specific laws. The question at issue' between Calvinism and Americanism is not the limitations of our freedom, but are we free to choose Jo walk in the narrow way that leads to life, or does God fix our destiny irrespective of our character or regardless of our choice.

BOX 112 , TELEPHONE 1244 Calvinism says we are not, American ism says we are, and such a question can only be answered by the Scriptures, and not by the opinion of the man on the street, which position Mr. Watson assumed. These street opinions are suited perhaps to form the basis of a lecture to a mutual improvement club, etc., but should be excluded from the Christian pulpit. Six days in the week are sufficient for our opinion: we want God's opinion on the day set aside for His work. Mr. Watson criticised the church for its neglect of the newly converted, which 1 admit great opportunity for criticism is afforded, but when he says that ninety-nine out of every hundred converted return to the old li.'e, he makes an assertion, that is hard to prove. When and where he compiled his statistics 1 care not, but if the hundredth one remained true and faithful, the sermon that was the means of his conversion bore the stamp of Divine approval. In Begbie's book, "Twice Born Men," we And examples who altogether disprove Mr. Watson's theory. ?,len who were steeped in sin when converted. Btayed right with their old' associations and bettered them. Christ is able to save to the uttermost and to keep from falling those who put their trust in Him. When Peter preached on the day of Pentecost three thousand souls were converted to God, and it appears to me that so long as Mr. Watson or Mr. Somebodyelse preaches these cut, and dried philosophical sermons, three thousand of them would not convert one soul. Christ said, "And if I. the Son of Man, be lifted up, I will draw all men unto Me." Have the preachers lost faith or confidence in Christ and His word? Paul says in I. Cor 1:23, "But we preach Christ crucified, which is foolishness to the Greek, and a stumbling block to the Jews, but the foolishness of God is wiser than men." Such sermons as the one I heard Sunday night contained nothing of the bread of life, and is not likely to create an appetite for the same among his hearers. We want bread not a stone. If. we have an appetite for philosophy we have our volumes of philosophical works, but as it seems to be part of God's plan that the Gospel should be preached, we beseech our ministers that, they will shun not to declare the counsel of God. Thanking you for this space, I am, TRUTH SEEKER. MILK RIVER FARMER MAKES A COMPLAINT Gives Concrete Example of Alleged Unfair Grading and Weighing of Wheat in the West- Plea for Reciprocity .1. A. Ellert. of Milk River, who is visiting at hiB old home, writes the Herald,from Glencoe, Minnesota, as follows: "As I am home this summer on va cation I will give you my experience of the wholesale robbery and dishonesty of Western Canadian wheat dealers and of the system of government inspection and weighing. "At Milk River, Alberta, I had one car load of winter wheat on the track for which an elevator man offered me 48 cents a bushels, the best he could do, he Mid. GOLD! SILVER! COPPEH, A POT OF MONEY PLACING THE STATUES AT OTTAWA Ottawa, Aug. US.-It has been decided that the statues of the late U'Arcy McGee and George Brown, for which Parliamentary appropriations have been made, should all be placed on Parliament Hill, within a few feet of the George Etienne Car-tier and Alexander MeKenzie monuments, at the east end of the main building. It has also been decided to erect in close proximity the Baldwin-Lafontain-e statue, which is about completed by the sculptor, Walter All-ward, of Toronto. BROWNLEE RESIGNS FROM GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC Winnipeg, Aug. 20.-W. G. Bvownlee general .transportation of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, has resigned hi\3 position. The position of general transportation manager has been abolished in the Grand Trunk Pacific service, instructions have been Issued by President. Chamberlain that divisional superintendents and others are to report, until further notice direct to the vice-president ! aiiarge of operation. Make a guess at.this amount ol money. We have jar of money on exhibition in "Winnipeg. Gold, bills, copper and silver in it. How much altogether? The jar weighs (2) two pounds, (4H1 four and one-half ounces empty. It holds (9-16) nine sixteenths of a gallon of water. Weighs (20) twenty pounds fllU) eleven and one-quarter ounces filled. Ft. has less than ($500) five hundred dollars in it and more than i$ofl) fifty. All goes to the lucky guesser of the correct amount. Do you want it? Here's how you can try for it. You can have one guess for every Quart of SILRSTONE Flat Wall Colours "Smooth mm Silk-Hard mm Stoac" you buy any time between Sept. 1 and Sept. 30, 1912. If you buy (2) two quarts you haw two guesses. Jf 3, three guesses and so on. See the photo of the gallon jar of money at. Stephens' agent's stores. No one knows how much Is in it. Your chance is as good as any one's. Only the employees of-the Stephens & Co., Ltd.. barred from guessing. All others who buy a quart, of Silkstone entitled to one guess for each quart bought. Make a guess. It's worth trying. Sllkstoiie is the wonderful, beautiful and sanitary new wall paint perfected by this company. It is smooth as silk, hard as stone. Better than wall paper or kaisomine. Make your home beautiful with Silkstone anc" send in your guess at the amount of money Jn the gallon jar. Make a guess, you may get all the money. "By shipping it to the Grain Growers Grain company I got 55 cents a bushel net. "Later on I had one car load of spring wh-eat, also shipped to the Grain Growers which they graded less than No. six. or feed, and the net price at Milk River was 21) cents a bushel in March. "Soon afterwards i left for my home in Minnesota and in order to secure a correct grading of the wheat I sold to the Grain Growers 1 took with me two large samples in linen bags. The miller here, Mr. Kennedy, who ships car loads of Hour and wheat east regularly, after a careful examination graded the winter wheat No. 2 for which $1.08 is paid' here and the spring wheat which was graded feed in Canada, he graded No. 3, the price being one dollar. I had been paid 29 cents. "That's the difference between the Grain Growers' Grain company and the prices in Minnesota at the latter part of 31 arch and the first part, of April. The very same wheat, out of the same bin-winter wheat 55 cents in Canada and $1.08 here. Spring wheat, 29 cents in Winnipeg, graded feed, and $1.00 here graded No. 3. "When the car was loaded we filled it. about four inches above the 1000 bushel mark, indicating about 1100 bushels, and when the returns came from Winnipeg we allowed S52 bushels When I wrote to the company I was politely informed lo write to the government inspector, that they had nothing to do with it. "This is not. an exaggerated statement, but an actual fact, and I contend that such an inspection is the greatest fraud and biggest robbery on the continent. When Mt. McMillan of Warner returned from Minneapolis last spring he was reported in the paper as saying that No. 2 and 'A in Minneapolis was only graded 4 and 5 in Warner, and he told the truth. If I had shipped my three car loads of wheat via Coutts to Minneapolis and paid the duty 1 would have been money ahead. "pats the Milk River farmers are paid 2!! and 28 cents a bushel for are 50 to (iO cents on this side of tlie line. "The natural outlet for Canadian grain is south, despite the government. Facts are stubborn things and appeals to national prejudice and patriotism cannot offset it for any length of time. Largely on such cries reciprocity was defeated but we hope It will yet prevail. It seems there is a good deal of truth in the saying. "Patriotism is the last, refuge of a scoundrel."
