WHERE THE WORLD'S PEACE The Hague, Famous for Schnapps and Great Solemnity The Girl Queen's Palace in the Woods to Be Used as a Meeting Flace for the Delegates. Of all spots in Europe in which the czar's peace congress could be neld, The Hague is tue most in consonance with the purposes of the conference.

In the paloCs by the side of the canal streets the big wigs of the civilized world can sit and "resoloot," drinking the while deeply of Schiedam j schnapps. The Netherlands look peaceful, but it is a peace that is well won a peace that was wrested from man and nature. : There isn't a prettier city than the Hague for its size in all Europe, uor one more beautifully laid out.

And it would be well for us to take the same posture often, closing the door against the world, while we sit down In sweet solitude to contemplate. In a small island off the coast of Nova Scotia I once passed a Sabbath in delightful solitude, for I had re solved that I would have one day of entire quiet before I entered upon au tumnal work. I thought to have spent the day in laying out plans for Chris tian work; but instead of that it be came a day of tender reminiscence. 1 reviewed my pastorate; I shook hands with an old departed friend, whom I shall greet again when the curtains of life are lifted.
