Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 13, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1918 THE LETIIBRIDGE DAIT.V .-^iaALD PAGE SEVEN Ciilgary, Nov. 12.-At 10.30 on Monday night, Tip Blalno, a barber from Druraheller was shot and Wiled Instantly by Albert Arnold, a naturalized Gorman, who farms In Verdant Valley, about 25 miles trom Drumheller.

This same I.{itber,^�s I remember, la the last of his famous QS/tbeeeei speifllts of the 'fflattery of 4 false peace."

' Not much I The world Is too small to allow them to go unpunished and the inexorable decrees of justice m^at and shiall be satisfied. They may presently take soine comfort in this "flattery of a false ipeace," but so far �as they are personally concerned, it wlU, for them, be of very, short duration. Had the kaiser and military' Jords of Germany been better acqu&ln^d.with arid more fully sensed thej Vlt^l Ithport of the trutli of those' 'words ' which ^ Luther wrote In tliat magnificent. lyric-Eln teste Burg .ist xihser Qott-''By force of arms we' nothing paii'' they �might have, spared the ".Fatherland" the dire calamities whloli threaten it today. The "All Highest",lias become the "all lowest," and the moat hated of all men on the earth. His present debased condition as a fugitive from his own land but exemplifies the saying, "Pygmies u�> pygmias still, though perched on Alps," and his 'glittering armour".' and "rattling sabre" will soon crowit the junk heap ot military scrap iron which will adorp Germany just to remind the German people of the folly 'and futility ot Might" not seasoned and tempered with "Right." :> " On this niemprablo anniversary of the great German reformer, I should like also to commend to Mr. Hohen-zollern and his conferes a few more lines found in the same lyric. They are as follows. For all their craft and force, Ono moment will npt linger; But, spite ot hell, shall have its course 'Tls written by Hip,, finger." And, for the Germ'fih people in their struggle for demoor�if:y, listen to the prophetic words-of this self-same reformer-your own bVldve^ Luther- "Then will tl>e people become great, after the coi^fUots of gt^ijerationsi and There Is never, and there can never be,-an end to the making of new hymn books, so long as ol^ftrches exist and meet tor worship. People sometimes ask; Why should be trouble to get new hymn books? What is wrong with the old ones? Why should we be expected to change our beloved tunes, give up old hymns, and accustom our souls to new ones? Why not let well alone? It Is always from the old these questions come; with the selflshness conservatism of old age, such grouch-ers do not realize that the young are growing up all the time, and that they deserve some little consideration at the hands of the church. They do not understand that during the years of the Immediate past, new hymns have gained the public ear and become favorites. It was the forefathers ot these good people who objected to hymns and organs, and clung desperately to the good and godly practice of reading out each line ot a Psalm before sihging it. The natural life of a hymn-book is about twenty years. The date appended to the preface of tRe present Presbyterian Book of Praise Is April 2nd,! 1897. The present book will thus have' served the church for about the regulation time. During these years many fine hymns have been written among English-speaking people; to say nothing of tunes; whilst in Canada, as In Other countries there has been a Lpaarked advancement both in musical and literary taste. Those who are competent to judge in these matter's will have no difficulty in judging how notably the new book Is superior to the old in these respects. There are some who ask why the church should go to the expense of a new hymn book at all. They should be told that the expense to the church Is a mbre bagatelle. The printer prints the book, and expecited to make his expenses oil the sale ot it, even after giving the church a percentage of his profits. The church has to pay out a few hundred dollars for new copy-riglitB ot tunes and words; beyond that very little expense . is incurred, and it is all easily made up by the extra profits resulting from large, sales of the book. � As to the expense Involved in the purchase ot a new book by the members of congregations, one finds it hard to speak with patience. There are so many people who will do almost anything rather than pay down good money for a book. They will spend as much in a feW days on such articles as newspapers and tobacco as would buy a hymn book, and never fee! it; but to buy a book outrages their sense of decency beyond measure. In any case, a hymn book, well used, should last a man about five years; so if he pays a dollar and a quarter for his book, his church music is costing him about ft quarter a year; and yet he will grouch for months about the expense. A tew words may be said to showj the differences between the new book and the one now in use. In tb old book there were two pai-ts: Part 1 contained extracts from the Metrical Psalter, and !Part 2 Was composed of hymns. In the new book the metrical Psalms still occupy the first place; but the division Into two sections has disappeared, and the numbering is consecutive from the beginning to the end of the book. Whereas in the present book there are 1.22 selections from the metrical Psalms, in the new book there will be 134, although the number ot Psalms repru-siented la the same, nihcty-flve. In the Hymn Section there are 694 in tjie new book, as compared with G21 in the old, an increase of 73. After a hasty run over, the writer finds that in,the Hymn Section about 200 hymns represent new matter; whilst from the old book about 100 hymns have been omitted. This calculation is made without, reckoning the Psalm selections, which contain the balance ot the freshly-introducod matter. m Turning first to the metrical Psalms, we note that many ot the Psalms which were touched up and variously tinkered in order to get rid of some ancient roughnesses have now been restored to the form they had in the Scottish version of 1650. This is ail to the good. These Psalms are enshrined In the hearts ot the old, and they are sut-flciontly iuliiliiglDle in thoir old form. So whilst they are historic memorials, they can be used to express the religious emotions and the praise ot men ot today. A conslderalile amount ot i^ew mutter hais been introdu'ced into this section, including some pieces which are generally reckoned as hymns, such as Montgomery's "O God, Thou art my God alone," (Ps. 63); "Hall to the Lord Anointed" (Ps. 72) by the same author;,0 God, our help In ages past (Ps, 90) by Isaac Watts'; "Praise, my soul, the King of heaven" (Ps. 103) by Lyte; God the Lord a King remaineth" (Ps. 93) by Kebla, STANDARD SIZES MAPLE LEAF TIRES are sturdily built from seleded materials, and are thoroughly reliable in all respects.

LEAF RUBBER CO., MONTREAI^ LIMITED. 3 tod hymns, one Is struck b.v the fact that very little regret will bo folt at their disappearance. One or two really good hymns have gono, probably because the church has never taken them to its heart; but for the most, part, they represent dead matter. It is to the new hymns ihat one turns with the deepest intereat, here are great riches, which (viii only be indicated in an article Uko this. It may be noted that some familiar hymns that were omittod from the present edition now find in the new one a welcome place. More justice is done to Charles Wesley by the insertion of the hymns "A Cliarge to Keep I Have," "Hall, the Day tliat Sees Him Illse," and "Ye Servant-s ot God, your Master Proclaim." We also welcome Montgomery's "Lift up your heads, ye gates ot brass," which at once vindicates its right to a place; as ilso does John Wesley's translat- ion "Thee will I love, my strength and tower." The. hymns ot the ancient church have now their due place in the book; the Te Deum and tho Canticles, along with ancient hymns, Rucli as "Hail, gladdening light" and "O come, O come, Immanuel" have long dwelt In the hearts of ChristUins, and should soon win the affections of ADD Released Nov, 2nd Geo T the Canadian Presbyterian Church. The storehouse of Ertglish poetry has also been drawn upon far more copiously than before. Tennyson gives us "Strong Son of God," and "Sunset and Evening Star," Kipling, "The Recessional." Christiana Rossetti has two pieces, "None Other Natne" and that charming carpi "The Shepherd's had an Angel, the wise men had a star"; Charles Kingsley's hymn for hospitals, "From Thee all skill and science flow" is also very welcome; we not- ice also Newman's liaise to the Holiest in the heights". Scott's "When Israel, ot the Lord beloved," and Herbert's quaint "Throw away Thy rod." Among American names we reoognlBC those of Emerson, >vith "We love the venerable house," Holmes with, "Lord ot all being, throned afar"; whilst Whittier's contribution show a marked increase. Specially worthy of: note is the hymn "When wilt Thou save the people?" The following sections are greatly en-, rlched: The Holy Spirit. Missions, Brotherly Love and Service, The Nation and Commonwealth, and particularly the hymns for the Young. As to the music, it has been most carefully revised, and shows a higher standard than even that ot the present book. The older tunes ^of the church find place in the book, together with many traditional English tunes, and quite a large representation of melodious Welsh tunes. In far lesa: degrees thB.n is the case 'with the Meth' odist book recently.published the coni' piler.'j have made use ot original com', positions ot our own people. The names of Mr. Cringan aud ot Mr. Br* nest MacMillan, the latter is stIU un-. happily a prisoner In Germany, may be noted; whilst Mr. Rhys Thomaa, and Mr. Healy Wlllan have kindly con-, ti'ibuted harraouisatlons and arrangements ot certain tunes. Since the writer speaks as one ot tho. committee which ia responsible for this book, it is not his place to blame or praise; but he may be permitted to record his conviction that in "The ; Book ot Praise" (tor that is the new' title) the Presbyterians possess a � book which is In every way worthy ot the high traditions ot their church, and which ia splendidly adapted to quicken among the people the spirit of . praise. And Now-Our Part put under their feet the Mockeries and lies and despotisms T^hliich drive them and others. to despair.''-Opntrlhwiiija. ' On looking ov� the hundred omit- fll Canada's army has splendidly finished its share in saving civilization on the battlefield. Now let us fake up the completion of our share of the task. Canada must still continue for a time to maintatn her soldiers; must provide transportation to bring them home; must arrange for their future so that they may again become self-supporting units in a re-constructed world. Canada must maintain prosperity at home-must continue for a time to finance the purchase of food and supplies for Great Britain and her Allies. Canada must press forward her great shipbuilding program in order that she may take her rightful place as a great sea-carrying power. For all these things hundreds of millions r' dollars will be required. To demobilize and re-establisu our soldiers in civil life alone will take many millions. Canada's Victory Loan, 1918, will provide ii^ necessary working capital. Therefore, Canada's Victory Loan, 1918 must be a great over-subscribed success. Our part, then, is to buy bonds and complete our great victory. Buy Victory Bonds Today! f 1 si i ;
