He finds, tlint some pf the athletic youth in his congregations have been so wearied by their exertions at the fqq(ba]l nmtchos on the Saturday tlwtt th'py"cqulcl nqt cumu oiifc to church on' Sunday morning. vj.-hjj remedy' he proposes for this state of matters soym
.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-,. Twenty r fi.ye.
