MOST FAMOUS HYMN "ROCK OF AGES' In the "Light of Home" the Rev. George Eayrs has an interesting article on the most famous hymn in the world. It reads:— ' "There are four hundred thousand hymns in the worJd. 'Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me,' is the best loved of them all. It does not compare with the 'Te Deum Laudamus, as a - summary of Christian truth, nor does it express the. rapturous devotion to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ which burns in St. Bernard's hymn, 'Jesu, Dulcis Memoria' ('Jesus, the very thought of Thee'). In lyrical heautv it is com pletely surpassed by Charles Wesley's 'Wrestling Jacob,' and in stately lan guage by Watt's psalm, 'O, God, our Help in Ages Past.' "It is, nevertheless, the most popu lar of all hymns, is found wherever Christianity has gone, and is most frequently used.

' THE BED SCQTJT. Among the bees I ever knew (And I've known many well), The palm for. pluck was best deserved By Angus Honeycell.
