Principles on the other hand beget what we extol as ideals. When we reason 1 the thing to its source we come to see that, what esti- mate as principles are certain codes of moiility which are laid down by what is accepted afe our faith, in the ethics we believe, or at any rate profess to believe.. That, at least, with us is the faith of Christianity on which we have j been reared. i Christianity is p common portion. It is the privilege lot' all. But we are too often inclined to believe that it is Daily, ooliierMl, ptr west Dttif, by mail, per yew Doily, by jnatl, (or C by cull, 1 montha .25 8.04 Do You Know? TODAY'S QUESTIONS 1.

We laud ideals. If there is any proof of this 3.6? j needed it was given to the world in the indignation ex- pressed and in the feeling displayed in the recent rsvela- tion in professional baseball. That, if it has served a ufee- ful purpose; has drawn men's minds to the value of what principles, self-respect, and ideals mean. And it is good for'us, just at this time when the matter comes so strongly; to ;Qwell on it in the measure it impresses us. AVe speak of the Church's mission in spreading those ethiCs we' intuitively respect and learn to respect when for their need is shown. But we forget that the duty of the Church, but an individual apathy in placing our duty on others _______to other potential offend-l we leaye the Church to fight its battles alone, though at wj, ISA K> io tiiem from follow-! the time we estimate the cause for which that battle is waged, in placing the root of our admiration for char- principles, self-respect, and .ideals in Christianity. If vi'e'valiie the mission of the Church in this respect, then there is the call for co-operation with the Chuj'ch, not merely' iH the sense of benelitting the Church in helping it in ita.labors, but in benefitting that humanity of which we are a part, and through whose lack of .estimating that which Aye prize the world and we ourselves suffer. In this we.cah'each of us be an example in conduct to others. As much as there is the Church's mission thereJs the layman's" mission. The extolling and preservation of ideals may be the special task Chui'ch, as we.regai'd the Cliufch tb be an institution. But like any other insti- spiritual or othenvise, if it-is reckoned for good then it calls for support and encouragement in what it ac- com.plielies, More than ever it is said there is the need of the Church today, not meuely'the church as ajbuilding and the preacher within it, but for what the Church stands for.

"As an Instance, about seven years.ago tbe Twin Falls Canal Compauy issued 15- year six per cent, bonds to be .lised In purchasing additional water rights from a U.

Simply that the Investing public bos been scared out by being bitten by buying bonds ot halt-baked Irrigation schemes in the past. The bond houses have learn-1 ed to discriminate between' solid pro- jects anil those are doubtful In their conception, .but the public which buys bomls from the bond hous- es has not learned tins.' -The very mentiou of irrigation bond. raises doubt, so that the sound schemes are retarded by the many failures.of wild cat schemes in times past.
