Names are epitomes of life. Names as monuments of
cities and civilizations. A unique candidate for universal
hme, Christ the supreme master of the science of right
living. Obedience native to Him. An exception to the law
of environment. Nazareth a strange home for the develop-
ment of purity. Christ contradicts the laws of culture,
property, and position. Unique as to the shortness of His
earthly career. Leaves no developed system or written
philosophy. His force purely personal. The living Christ.
Unique as an ideal for man and woman.

THE SUPREMACY OF CHRIST IN THE REALM OF IDEAL CHARACTER By Newell Dwight Hillis" But Thee, but Thee, O sovereign Seer of time, But Thee, O poets' Poet, Wisdom's Tongue, But Thee, O man's best Man, O love's best Love, O perfect life in perfect labor writ, O all men's Comrade, Servant, King, or Priest, — What if or yety what mole, what flaw, what lapse, What least defect or shadow of defect. What rumor, tattled by an enemy, Of inference loose, what lack of grace Even in torture's grasp, or sleep's, or death's, — Oh, what amiss may I forgive in Thee, Jesus, good Paragon, thou Crystal Christ ? "  — Sidney Lanier's " The Crystal."  Names are epitomes of life. Names as monuments of cities and civilizations.

living. Obedience native to Him. An exception to the law of environment. Nazareth a strange home for the develop-ment of purity. Christ contradicts the laws of culture,  property, and position.

90 The Supremacy of Christ sins and from sinning. The old prophet, too, capitalized Christ's " name " as Wonderful, the Counsellor, the Mighty God, the everiasting Father, the Prince of Peace.

They are epitomes of life. They con-dense character and career. Granaries store up material harvests, and names gamer soul treas-ures. With wisps of straw husbandmen bind wheat into bundles, with strings gardeners tie flowers into nosegays ; and a name is a thought  band binding together heart qualities. Without names civilization and cities would be impossible. Individuals would be lost in the multitude as drops in the river. For by names men make contracts, form partnerships, assume commercial
