THE MEASURE 0FMAN Rev C B Pattlilo Deliveis a Striking Discourse in St L ui 1 Protest Against tbe Acceptance of tbe -Standard That Man- is -4h - Meaeure of U Tbii gi. "God'e Measure of All Thing" was the topic of a striking discourse delivered .on Sunday at Lafayette Park Church, St. Louis, by Iter. C. E. Pattlilo, former pastor of the First M. E. Church, South, Little Rock. He said, among either things: , ; i.'y "It is time for plain speaking, uncompromising r loyalty and unwavering faith. We need to know that the statement, 'Man is the measure of nil things,' is materialism s Trojan horse: that in this flattering and complimentary' dogma' there is concealed a poison death-dealing alike to the activities of the individual and the hopes of tho race. " . ' "I protest against the acceptance of this standard,. JSot alone, on account of the source from whence it comes, butT""8"5 first, because It denies the reality of the supernatural, and asserta that hat - ural phenomena are all that lZ knownt ouuide ottnaornicn eoxli be tested by the senses, weighed, measured or analyzed, there Is and there can he no certainty. Ah, . but there are feelings to us more real than houses and lands. There are mental and spiritual wants beyond our possibility to measure, that seem to be stretching out their trms for help at the very center of being. - "I object further to the standard of the materialist on the ground that , it limits and degrades our humanity. It means the everlasting slavery of mind and spirit to matter. . - "It is a fatal objection to- the stan- dard given us by the materialist IV show that -It Is not -8Vfixedmeasure,X- -.Ur,,: ,o u atffAw, a m iB rtifr.nt .nt non. while under the palm tree, at-the so being In Its nature untrustworthy it has neither the power; of certalaty nor the potency of authority. "The saying of the old Grecian thinker and his present sympathizers is not to be cast aside as worthless. His work Is not wholly lost. It does not go simply to swell the mental and moral waste heap of human history. It Is the cunning of reason, which allows selfish Interest to have Its own way and yet compels it to minister to ends of reason. t "In opposition to 1he pagan and materialistic idea of the measure of all things declared:"' - : " 'In God manflnds a cosmo8t of which be f elt liiwselt ft part; . 7 , i "For the vast and pos-sibllities of his nature, he finds room, and to the ,; eager . questioning of his spirit there comes a ready answer. Here is a measure' which denies nothing good, which does not hide Its im-potency in mystery, nor veil its Incapacity In . dogmatism. A 'measure though accurate and Impartial, is yet klnd-A'measure'-Usfactory-ln-lts results and omnlfic in its authority. . "Granting that the conception is true that 'God is the measure of all things,' we must not lose sight of the fact that it is Impossible for man to think except in terms of his own thought, that all his beliefs and actions must bear the color of his mind, the imprint' of his character, and be found in the limits of his creaturehood. Man Is as necessa rily finite as God Is Infinite. "This world Is about us, Dresse us wiht eager questions and will either be inspired by our interpretation or made callous by our silence. No man can ignore or lightly regard tbe demands of the world who loves h s kind and who feels humanity stirring him, which Is greater than gain and larger than himself. Never were the opportunities for noble endeavor and splendid service in behalf of men as great as now, and they who own the wealth or possess the scholarship of this age may. build for themselves monuments In the hearts of their countrymen more lasting than bronze and more enduring than marble." ' v : V ON THE, PQRT ARTHUR ROUTE -. - . ... .- Some of tbe Splendid Advantage of the Country It Travetaes . The Port Arthur routeis one of the young giants of the western railway world. This" Is the popular name of tbe Kansas City, Pittsburg & Guff railroad, which is the most - direct route from the north to the gulf, and has, moreover, opened up some of the finest agricultural and mining sections of the state, skirting the western border. By far the larger proportion of manganese ore produced in the ' United States is mined In Arkansas. Tbe manganese belt is known to be very extensive, but as yet has scarcely been prospected. The Port Arthur route is the only line entering tL. rich field in southwestern Arkansas. An excellent quality of slate Is known to exist in Arkansas and promises to become a great source of wealth in the, near future; considerable marl and gypsum are found, and the only real chalk deposits In the United States are at White Cliffs. The farming country through which the Kansas City, Pittsburg & Gulf railroad operates more nearly approaches the Ideal than any other country in the United States. Any of It all of it-'s fertile, productive and well watered.

A man wlth-1,000 American dollars rn his belt and a head with sound American business abilay in It, landing lu Manila within tue next six months will only be able to compute his profits by its ability to count. It will not matter what business he makes up his mind to undertake, as long as he provides nr. tides of home make or their imitation. There is no doubt that there Is a-for-tune to be made by the man or womau who will start a bakery and candy store, such as are to be found in all' large towns . at home. Flour, sugar, and other necessary ingredients can all be bought in open market at very reasonable prices, and would go as rapidly as offered for sale. A newspaper agency, -where late magazines and American works could be bought, would be a profitable, enterprise. .There is now no way to get anything of this kind except by individual subscription. 7 The climate does not agree with many, but people of "both sexes who, while born and brought up In Europe and England, have lived here some time, say that they became acclimated in a few months. There Is no doubt that our people would find It the same, That American clerks and bookkeepers will be In demand there is no doubt; the Filipino is too careless and unreliable to be depended upon. In the large houses that are bound to be established b both English and American capital, positions with large salaries attached will be at the disposal of those on hand to accept them. Skilled labor of every kind, mechanical and engineering, will be needed In the municipal improvements as well as in tbe opening up of the coal and gold fields farther in the interior. With the firm belief that many Americans will try their fortunes here, a word to those who know something on keeping boarding houses. There is not a place where comfort at medium rates can be obtained. Let some one give his attention to this. Living Is extremely cheap. The hire of a servant is nothing in comparison with American prices. A good servant is . paid f8 Mexican a month most of them receive $0. Rental Is very economical. A 50-foot store on the main street, the Escolta, rents today for ?75 Mexican, and on the side streets the rents are much lower. The average rent for a house for six people, with a stable attached, is $70 Mexican; this is in the best neighborhood. Capt. Putnam Bradlee Strong in Leslie's Weekly.
