734                CHURCH REVIEW.



                          V
               WANTED: AN  IDEA.


                 FOR  months the  St. Louis  Globe
                   Democrat and other widely circula-
                   ted newspapers have contained the
                   following:

                      "WANTED--AN IDEA: Who can think of
                    some simple thing to patent?  Protect your
                    ideas. They may bring you wealth.  Write
                    Patent Attorneys, Washington, D.C., for their
                    list of 200 inventions wanted."

  So far as mind of man, by looking backward into
eternity, can conceive of any existence whatever, either
of matter or spirit, it is cognizant of the existence of
God.
  It sees Him first and prior to every other existence-
the great I Am and Original First Cause, whose Omnis-
cient Idea, simply willed by him into substance, becomes
materialized and manifests itself to the sentient mind
as the universe, wonderfully perfect, whether viewed in
its symmetrical cosmos, or in its aggregations, unities
and component, yet mutually interacting members.
  Man's correct ideas, even his most original ones, are
deductions and inferences from environment even when
higher inspiration helps  to define, elucidate and fix
them. But let this be ever remembered, that new ideas
when useful and progressive, come more readily to him
who has the more correct knowledge of the relationships,
influences and effects upon each other of the different
forms, shapes and conditions of matter.
  These ideas become profitable in proportion only to
one's ability to materialize them into some machine,
