The Coming Church Mission. I During the terrible tim-es through which we are passing there are those who are carefully calculating what the ultimate result of it all will be. There is no doubt, in the minds of any Briton worth the name, as to the physical outcome of the present conflict. With ur gallant allies, we must win through to com- plete and overwhelming victory. But, what then? This is a question that is being iiiu,Ii discussed from the commercial point of view. Plans are being laid down, and arrangements made to capture German trade. The prob- able commercial results are being totted up with. an absolute nicety of calcullation. -,Is good old, if somewhat unmoral motto, so far as its application at times is concerned, hat "trade follows the flag," is being boomed for all it is worth; and we are being assured, with considerable show of authority, that be- i cause of the lessons whaoh the country has II earned during the present struggle, and much that preceded it, our commerce alists are out to profit immeasurably. This is a contention that can scarcely be refuted. There will be'a great trade bcom in this country, if not immediately after, at any rate soon after the war is brought j to the only conceivable conclusion. There are, of course, other directions in which the British Empire has gained material lessons, apart from those that are associated with trade and commerce. In many of the higher things of life, preconceived ideas and defective notions will have! to be re-mofdelled in view of what is happening to-day in Flanders, when the end comes and we are in a position to join in the glad re- joicings that follow upon the declaration of peace. Never again will the people of these fair realms of Britain drift so near to the edge of the-precipice over which the dry bones of absolute decadence lie, as they bad drifted prior to the outbreak of war. It needed, per- haps, the sudden sharp shock to pull us up and how splendid the result! But if, commer- cially and socially, the lessons have been so greaft and so momentous, what of the spiritual? This is a question that h concerning many, And of the most enlightened and beneficent fl:l. I .— -c cliiv .J,v is spiritual I ledger to be balanced in view of the great audit now in progress? It is good to know that in this district, as elsewhere throughout the length and breadth of the Empire, this problem is occupying the attention of thougnt- ful people, who realise that things cannot pos- sibly remain the same after the war as they were before. Old ideas have been shattered, long-cherished traditions swept away and deep down in the undercurrents of human life, movements have been made in hitherto stag- nant waters, that will have to be accounted with. How are Christian organisations equipping themselves, to be in a position to face necessary ^re-adjustments? From a gathering of parishioners held in the Parish Church at Llangollen on Monday night, it is good to know that, in common with churcn- people throughout the kingdom in general, workers at Llangollen have decided, and that with no uncertain voice, to prepare for the g.orious spiritual ingathering which they anli- cipate will be possible in the autumn. It has tefcii decided to hold a parochial mission ard, dm-iag the weeks that intervene, between the present time and October, to prepare and Liake ready the plan of campaign that n;ll ce then bicught fully into operation, in the Hire and certain hope that it will be on the eve of the dceltration of a great and glorious peace. And it is good, in this connection and at such f. time. to be able to write of and to a p prod .lie ecc'OiJastical activities, apart altogether from those po-itical considerations which have some- what disfigured the reli,gious -ontr)-i-or,ies (f flu-:?* later times. To regard "Christ's Church Militant here belcnv," and more especi- ally L!1?t branch of it enlisting -in Wales, as considering with all oaro and Christian solici- tude j'ow best to rea-d j nt its outlook in order to jiieet new condition-, and changed circum- stances, is inspirirg and invigorating. The heads of the chareli have recognised that, after the war, things cannot possibly settle down into the old grooves. But this is not all. They have also realised that to the Chris- tian missioner these distracted times present great opportunities; and of these they are determined to take full, absolute, and com- plete advantage. How is this to be done ? The Churchmen of the locality have considered the matter, and the wise conclusion they have come to is that any attempt that is to be suc- cessful in the high purpose aimed at, must be one of works rather than of words; solid, thoughtful effort rather than pious invocation to people to do that which the preacher and those for whom he speaks;, are not disposed to assist them by wise practical advice to du. As a matter of fact, it is realised, here) as elsewhere, that enthusiasm, a.s an aid to spiritual regeneration, if the term be permis- sible, has been weighed in the bala.nce and has not completely justified itself by re- sults. Anything akin to a series of preaching meetings, on the recog- nised Welsh lines, is not contemplated, and to those who recognised inmeetirigs of the kind a very fruitful means of grace, it will be inter- esting to hear the other side. The fine pulpit eloquence and per-fervid appeals tha.t are associated with revivalism ar, in the opinion of local Churchpeople, apt to defeat their own ends by unduly exalting horrors without clear- ly indicating how thiey are to be doers of the Word. They require to be shown that their Covenajit with God is not a binding treaty •. n the Sabbath and a "scrap of paper" on every other day of the week. The Church in the past has had missioners and great missioners. Then, like Knox Little, Body, and Wakeford—the latter of Whom was to have begun a great church mission at Llan- gollen, when the outbreak of war upset all calculations—have worked in various spheres with miraculous results. They are but some of the outstanding figures in the great cloud of witnesses who have borne eloquent testimony to the old style of mission work—that which, perhaps unduly, elevated the pulpit, as a means of graoce. These ,good and great men-aiid the other-worldliness of the phrasing in a. secu- lar journal must be excused—relied on "he Divine promise "I, beiing lifted up, will draw all men unto Me." They preached J esus only," held up the Word as the brazen serpent was lifted up in the wildnerness, and .Hj re- sult was miraculous. All men were dtawn unto Him in aiccordanoe with the promise. How far that appeal reached record tells. To the harlot of Magdala, to the demoniac of the tombs, to the lowest and the vilest the appeal came, and from these lie selected the bright- est genus that glitter and glow in the regalia, of heaven. Being lifted up, He draws all n-jn unto Him. This the Church missioner recog- nises to-day; but, recognising the power of the living voice, he recognises also the ,1I. ness and the completeness of the assurance that "faith without works is dead." Studying latter-day methods, he sees that when all the froth and effervescence engendered by pure enthusiasm, which may be so easily stimulated by the pulpit orator, has died away, that which remains is neither very substantial nor ery appreciable-in fact, on occasions, it has proved very much the reverse. Therefore, the idea would be to get back to the bed-rock of Christian missionary effort, which indicates that sowing and watering are of the higher functions of human endeavour, realising that God givet-h the increase. The mission that ¡ will be held at Llangollen during the auifcumn i is to be ushered in by a period of calm, cars- fni, and prayerful, preparation. What tluse who are pledged to work in connection with it seek to achieve are solid and substantial re- sults. They desire that in this great season of i international strife, with its climaxes and anti- climaxes, the Church shall not be found want-, ing but, by laying down, slowly and delib r- ately, the pathway to higher things, they may the ww co—esnor.dents phrase it—gain and consolidate spiritual conditions that,! when the storm fury that disfigures i -ese times shall have receded, and sweet peace again abide with us, the whole plans of Christian Ifie may remain higher than it was before the ad- vent of the cataclysm that, unhappily, has not yet spent its force.

CAMP NOTES. I PARK HALL. I Lieut.-General Sir W. Pitcairn Campbell inspected the troops at their work in Camp on Mondav. The Bishop of St. Asaph, who holds the honorary rank of colonel as an army chaplain of the first class, visited the Camp on Monday for the purpose of confirming soldiers who are leaving shortly with drafts for the front. Two confirmations were held, one at the Church Hut in the 4th R. W.F. lines, and the other in the Criurch Hut in Camp West 2. His lordship was attired in the khaki uniform pre- scribed for army chaplains. < it < < According to the latest War Office orde-ib, wounded soldiers who have returned nm the front will be entitled to wear a ipld stripe on the arm. < < < A cricket match between the Welsh and the West Lancashire Division will be played on the Park Hall cricket ground this after- noon, at 2.30, weather permitting, and let us hope that the rain will keep off for the after- noon, so that the match may not again have to be postponed. All the battalions have sent in to the committee the names of their best bat and bowler, with a notification, f the teams they played for in civil life, nd tiWr respective averages. Thenlayers with the best averages have been chosen to repvjssnt their respective divisions. Both teams include several county players. 4 I The Sergeants of the 7th Cheshire Reserve Battalion, to the number of 33, went for an enjoyable trip to Chester on Sunday by motor charabanc. After partaking of lunch at Chester, the party had a, trip up the river on a motor launch, and partook of tea at Eccles- ton Ferry. Whilst motoring home after an enjoyable day's outing, a few miles from Chirk the Sergeants encountered a lady motorist in distress, and gallantly went to the rescue by towing her car with the lady inside into Chirk village, an experience, I am tola, which they much enoyed.

I Denbighshire Police. The annual meeting of the Denbighshire Police Committee was held at Denbigh on Wednesday, when Mr. W. D, W. Griffith was elected chairman for the ensuing year. The Chief Constable's report showed an in- crease of five in indictable offences and lib in non-indictable offences as compared with the corresponding period of last year. In reply to Mr. Parry, Stanstv* the Chief Constable explained that the large increase in non-indictable offences was accounted for by the fact that 76 were handed" over to the military authorities. Continuing, the Chief Constable said it was too early yet for him to express an opinion as to the working of the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic) Act. A discussion arose as to the provision of capes for special constables, and the matter was referred to the Clothing Committee, with power to act. A sub-committee recommended that on ac- count of the increased cost of living the war bonus at present granted to members of the police force be increased from 2s. to 4s. per week for married and single men who were householders, and from 2s. to 3s. for single men over five years' service. ■
