.very like revolution in Scotch lirel^iwSil^? ideas. He proposes that the] footbill%f| match should bo postponed till the Sunday •: ' afternoon, and that his young people ■ should have their worship first and their ;V enjoyment afterwards. He defends hii ''!■■' proposal by the observation that, etymo*. ' logically, religion and recreation mean the j same thing. We are not so sure about that, but the fact that such a suggestion „ is made by a miiuHter in Scotland, proves i that Scotland is moving forward perhaps, l»fast, enough-,.
