Ways That are Strange FROM THE OBSERVATION of the ilk laid down on Seven'h -ivenuo cust'waids from Fourteenth street, one cannot help coining to the conclusion that the Authorities methods _ne own j Oi? the north siAf of the tfSenuc. nheig the paung has been Bud" ih'erejis but'a solitaiv house'1 on the soutii side hhere are a or roore'VMiouses nothing has been djjne have tnougnc Qiaf coni Jerlug the benefit nnd paung is sup posed to snunlj, ijieviaterests of the vould -have heen -considerea and tba pacing1 Ufd. in the hist Stage evftienlly Prom expresS'eil side of that of feelk iihittithev been justlj agree liig wa5vconsidfe.Ted Burelvt common -sense woiiKfhave dic- tated fh3 piopuet% of it vrheie 11 be A.S- we actual time on fiicli. it i? 4o be 'commenced" is" something in: the nature of the Greek The present wooden structure Is not onl> an evesore but does not meet. with.'its state of .unevenneps the uses for it erected Across the toad is the uewh hnifehed ornamental paving We use the >vo ornamentil j The people on the south of tnV nenue lie in ibe unhappy position o-e sstVeet thought? the of can divine 'so near so JfJ.r, so far as" jts use appeals to them Time 'Eas been in tinkering witht or in_ olhSi words mending de- ithe sidewalk to gtriicture is tp -gjie place Much time and roonej of the It jvoulti sensftla pmical to torn up the Structure "ted light Itnay But on the of to the tUc authorities Jt IB desirable to attention to matters'sneiV-iS ibis? for it seems that Opr.oipnient'v are not 'n in thej "hould be I Where a Remedy is JSeeded cloth to assume entirely these nev, T IS NOT altogether uncommon'at tbe present time to read neivs hie "ilia-i ministers phper reports .filaUn doning of their locations of thvi gospel to take .up other opera lions. It is possible that this may not he- altogether a new thing. But the fact of its being brought to public notice points to. a realization that, in many cases, ministers are underpaid, and Is a silent accusation that their congregations are in a measure fail- ing in their From the pulpit to the ring Is a long -gt-ep, but such a transmission has taken place. It is not sn-much with the incident we are concerned as with the excuse given. It is short, but fill! of meaning, ''one. must live, or rather two." It is true tho par- ticular change of vocation has not taken place in our own country, but that rather enlarges the scope of ac- cusation. Bo far as we arc concerned, we cannot, but feel that rega-rding the payment of ministers there is much to-be; desired.

But, as that -has not just yet -been realised, it is: a matter of concern that things-.should remain ns they are. It is obvious that something should be done which would help ministers retain. their positions, without their hating tire excuse that the} have to abandon, the same, in order that wives and families should he able 1o live It the ch'urch is considered to be a bene- fit to the nation, and there is no gain- saying that it is, then, it is for the people to .realise their respoiialbility Such wandering .away from duty, ex- amples of which have heen noted, cannot but give opportunities for sneerers and scoffers, of wliom there are bound to be some in every com- munity. Those who lhe uses of the church as ii national institution for their self-respect should talio measures 10 see that" none should have occasion to cavil at them for lu IU. .lions: Some have boldly forsaken the being church-goers and nothing more.
