Perfect sterilization of liquids by means of filtration only seems to be made possible on a large scale through a proeess originated by two French scientists and reported to the Academy of Scientists at a recent meeting. It is known that membranes of collodion have the property of re taining all the microbes in a liquid filtered through them. But they are very fragile and therefore impractical outside of the laboratory. By re-en forcing the collodion membrane with a fine wire screen Imbedded in it, just as a pane of glass is thus re-enforced, the two scientists constructed a filter not only strong enough for practical purposes but so effective as to exclude even molecules of salts dissolved in the" liquid. Well Informed.

lie bad closest attention to bis discussion of the question, "Which is the True Church 7" The vast audi ting appeared satisfied that the true Church had been properly located. The audience, so far as could be ascertained, was composed of truth-hungry peo-, pie of all denominations. Undoubtedly the question discussed has been a -vital one for centuries. Some claim that never before had an answer been jfiven satisfactory to Christians of all denominations. His text was, "The 'Church of the First-borns, whose names aro written in heaven." Heb.

xii, 23. Scriptures were cited in proof of the speaker's contention that the Lord Jesus and the Apostles never organized any but the one Church, and the histories of the various denominations were referred to as proving that all present-day Christian denominations were non-existent a thousand ago and hence none of these denominations could have been the one referred to by the Apostle as the "Church of the Living Timothy iii, 15. For a time, said the speaker, each of the various denominations In turn protested against other teachings and claimed to be the one Church of Christ which had been for centuries lost sight of. At one time these various denominations fought each other, persecuted each other even unto death, each claiming that the other was a false Church and that itself was the true one. More recently, however, the Christian mind has broadened and deepened until now w5 clearly see that God has saintly people in practically all denominations.

The One Catholio Church" Tastor Russell freely admitted that the Roman Catholic Church could prove her existence long centuries before her sister and daughter organizations, but he disputed, nevertheless, that the Church of Rome could prove her identity with the Apostolic Church of the first century. On the contrary, many of the teachings of the Church of Rome differ radically from those of the Church of Jerusalem, represented by the Apostles and their New Testament writings. And as for the cere monials, usages, customs, no one at all familiar with the two could suppose them to have even a close relationship. The only conclusion we reach consistent with the above facts is this: That the original Church which Jesus and His Apostles founded was a catholic one that is to say, a general or universal Church, and not a Church of Rome, a Church of England, a Church of Sweden, a Church of Germany, nor a Greek Church, but a universal Church a catholic or general Church, l'rotestants In general recognize this and hence in their confessions generally claim to be "The Holy Catholic (universal) Church." The fact, however, la that none of these churches (Roman, English, Baptist, Presbyterian, etc.) is catholic or general, because none of them Includes all of God's people. To admit that any one of these religious bodies Is the catholic or general Church of Christ would be to admit that It includes all persons recognized by the Lord as being members of His Church.

We cannot, therefore, admit that the term catholic belongs to any of these denominations, not even the Roman Catholic. The catholic Church of Christ the one which includes all who are truly His is not a human organization, and Its role or rostra is not Lept on earth. To it alone apply the Apostle's words "The Church of the First-borns, whose names are written In "Household of Faith" This family of God, begotten of the Holy Spirit, are one with Him in Spirit, in purpose, in intention. Tbey have the "Faith once delivered unto the saints" faith In the Father, faith In the Lord Jesus as His Son, man's Redeemer; faith In the Holy Spirit of begetting, faith In the exceeding great and precious promises of glorious things to come, and bey have the one baptism into the Body of Christ, which is the Church. Some of them may have seen and may have obeyed the proper symbol of this one baptism, while others may not.

But all these recognize the true baptism and all participated therein baptism Into Christ's death. Romans vL 3- If we so see, let us strive to attain Dembershiu in the, true Church. The ft'ASTQg KUSSlLp because there are more people. It is less in rural districts, though still and as the population is now largely urban, it is quite natural that the proportion of defectives Bhould increase, though as a matter of fact there is no evidence that it has, Big cities are modern affairs and that is why their phenomena are being discovered, but the accounts of-London some centuries ago showed a deplorable number" of defectives, probably far greater in proportion than In New York now. Though it is appalling that there should be nearly a quarter million diseased school children, yet the defects are of minor things, while formerly they were severe.

The seat of most of the trouble is said to be malnutrition, but it is not nearly so bad as in European cities of the last century.

CHRISTMAS DAY OF 1 Printer's Lad, Waiting for Copy From. Masson, Spent Holiday in the Author's House. I It happened that sad Christmas, tide of 1SG3, when Thackeray lay dead and all the London papers were busy with his name, my father received a hurried little note from Edward Levy after Levy Lawson, the present Lord Burnham asking him to write the article for the Daily Telegraph on" Thackeray's death. I found the note not long ago among some papers. It was dated "December 25,, 1863," and asked my father to "do for us today a leader on the present condition of English literature apropos of the death of Thackeray."
