THE QUESTION OF LABOR AND CAPITAL

The fact that a prominent local daily declares it is about to follow the worthy policy adopted some time ago by The Christian Science Monitor, of furnishing free advertising space to those looking for employment or for employers seeking help, gives occasion for rejoicing. Universal salvation may be defined as universal activity, rightly directed. The redemption of the race must come through honest service. The Biblical injunction, "Work out your own salvation," is the best practical solution ever offered of any and all labor problems and it will continue as law, unchanged and unchangeable, until the problem of labor and capital is finally solved.

A laboring man was the means of stopping a runaway horse, and thereby rescued three children of a well-to-do merchant. As a suitable reward for this service, the merchant proffered the man the most valuable gift in his power to bestow, congenial employment for life. A Christian Scientist who had very little in the way of worldly possessions, began to express mentally gratitude for being able to give even limited employment to the seamstress, the housemaid, and the laundress. As this gratitude was more deeply felt, many other employees were added to her pay-roll, such as the carpenter, the office assistant, the day-laborer, and the landscape gardener, and with this increased pay-roll came an added understanding of gratitude, activity, and supply.
