IB THE GAZETTE, SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 1353 Ring Out Welcome Old Locomotive SundayCall to Worship Heard Bells Many Montreal Localities Stories of QJunwuA Locomotive bells have a strong. by HUfW clear peal which might heip explain why they are in de- mand to perform functions after their railroading days are over. To borrow the description of the railway mechanical engineers, they have a "sweet tone" and this is no accident, for the "sweetness" of a bell is avidly created. An early and persistent superstition insisted that a touch of silver would do the job, but mod- illlfy 11 li WE SHALL MEET BEYOND THE RIVER We ihall meet beyond the river, By and by, by and by; And the darkness shall be over, By and by, by and by; With the toilsome journey done, And the glorious battle won, We shall shine forth a the sun, By and by, by and by. Ws shall strike the harps of glory By and by, by and by; We shall sing redemption's story, By and by, by and by; And the strains for evermore Shall resound in sweetness o'er Yonder everlasting shore, By and by, by and by.

EQUIPPED WITH LOCOMOTIVE BELL: St. Saviour's Mission, of the Anglican Parish of St. Col-umba in N.D.G., is typical of the many churches, and chapels equipped with discarded locomotive bells. When mission was founded 25 years National Railways presented with the bell which is rung on Feast Days.

Many religious and in the Greater Montreal area have use. (GazetU Photo fitrvic imbue Comorroft mm The Rev. John Atkinson, a Methodist minister, was in his study one night in 1867 musing on the life after death and on the reunion that he would some day enjoy in Heaven with his mother, who had recently been called home to glory. It was while he was thus musing that the words of "We Shall Meet Beyond The River" General Synod Will Be Asked To Approve New C. of E.

Name Some time seo the Canadian National Railways received an appeal from the parish priest of a small town on the South Shore. A new church had been built and opened there, but it lacked a bell. Could the CN R. supply a bell for use in calling the parishioners to service? The answer was "yes" for one was found that had been removed from a locomotive; it was polished and buffi and delivered to the pastor. Subsequently, in a public ceremony outside the new building, the bell was blessed and installed in the steeple.

From a casual glance, it appeared rather odd that a locomotive bell should become a highly useful piece of equipment for a church; but a little research revealed such developments are not at all uncommon and it is not alone to churches that these discarded bells have been distributed. Schools, camps, clubs and business establishments across the country today are using former "iron horse" bells for many useful purposes The bells are supplied free-of-charge by the C.N.R. but because of their popularity particularly with churches the demand has far exceeded the supply. Hence the railway has a lengthy list of "orders" to be filled. Earlier this vear.

for Instance, bells have been supplied. to the United Church in East Greenfield. the Mission Church Polished, buffed of St. Philip and St. James, Lake Success, N.Y.; the United Church in Fenwick, N.S.; the Church of St.

Peter and St. Paul, Sardis, B.C. at the request of the Archbishop of Vancouverand the Fire Hall in Rapide Blanc, Que. In 1939 the C.N.R, filled a request for a bell for the Roman. Catholic Church in Minerve, Que.

As it was the only bell In the village, it was pressed into service for other than church uses particularly for sounding firs alarms! Christian Science Subject in Church Tomorrow: 'Mind' How understanding of. Divine Mind's government of man brings health and harmony into daily experience will be set forth at Christian Science church ser vices tomorrow. The lesson-ser mon entitled "Mind" includes the account from the King James Version of the Bible (Luke 5) of Christ Jesus healing of the man afflicted by leprosy. Among the correlative passages to be read from the Christian Science textbook "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy is the following: "When mart is governed by God, the ever-present Mind who understands all things, man knows that with God all things are pos sible." The Golden Text is from I Corinthians "Who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him?" make the best use of their know ledge. Hallie G.

When wartime demands gobbled up thesa commodities to the point of'short-age, the CN R. tried steel as a substitute and, though the re- suits were acceptable, the return to brass meant the return to better tones. Locomotive bells generally are 12 inches high, 17 inches in diameter and weigh about 100 pounds. They require, like any tuned bell, a great deal of careful detail in their production: the rich-toned engine bell is an artistic accomplishment There are dozens of churches, chapels and missions In th Greater Montreal area equipped with locomotive bells and Sunday call to worship is pealed on them to let churchgoers know it is time for them to attend service.

POWELL came to him. The hymn of faith in Heaven, he said later, "seemed to sing itself into my heart." "I had better write it down," Atkinson thought, "or I shall lose it." And so, in the quiet of his study, "and not far from midnight," according to his own story, he wrote the verses one by one as they are sung today. The hymn is not as well known or as widely used to- a resolution to change the name the mind of the Church is now moving in favor of a change in name for the Church. It is the opinion of those responsible for the name of the Church that the present title Is a limiting term and does not, especially to newcomers. adequately describe the Canadian Church.

Nelson Chappel of New York, addressing more than 8,000 delegates from 32 conutries, said the Communists are only too well aware of the future value of their children. Mr. Chappel, general secretary the Uhurcn was sei up oy we Primate, Most Rev. Walter Foster Barfoot, following the meeting of the Executive Council of 1954. At that time, the Council resolved ts follows: "That a committee be appointed by the Primate to study the matter and report to the Gen-tral Synod of 1955."

COLLECT FOR TRINITY II God, who declareat thy almighty power chiefly in showing mercy and pity; Mercifully grant onto us such a measure of thy grace, that we, running the way of thy commandments, may obtain thy gracious promises, and be made partakers of thy heavenly treasure; through Jesua Christ ur Lord. Amen. Temple Emanu-El a 0 of the World Council of Christian Education and Sunday School Association, said Communist youth movements have been told to begin preaching anti-religious propaganda again. The home, said Dr.

Chappel, is the most effective place for proper Christian education. "Children are much wiser than we think. They read the gospel we preach with our lives as parents we can conceal nothing from them." It is a great mistake, Dr. Chap pel thought, to try to make religious education in the schools take the place of religious training in the home. But he did commend Great Bri tain, and the Province of Ontario as examples of "worthwhile inte gration of Christian education with fipneral education in the schools." Harlie L.

Smith, of Indianapolis. president of the Disciples of Christ Board of Higher Educa tion, said in addition to teaching knowledge for solution of problems. Christian education must give students a et of values to ST. JAMES UNITED CHURCH 463 St. Catherine St.
