"What Would Jesus Do?"
Bj 0HABLE3 M. BHELDOH.
lOoPTrtgA end published la book form by
the Ac snoe Publishing Co. of Chicago.
Bollin came back ana eat aown, ana
together the three discussed their future
plans. Bollin was apparently entirely
free from embarrassment in Rachel's
presence while Virginia was with them ;
only his manner with her waa almost
precise, if not cold. The past seemed to
be entirely absorbed in his wonderful
conversion. He had not forgotten it,
bat he seemed to be completely caught
up for this present time in the purpose
of this new life."
' After awhile Rollin was called out,
and Rachel and Virginia began to talk
of other things. . ' -
"By the way, what has become of
Virginia asked the question inno
cently enough, but Rachel blushed, and
Virginia added, with a smile: "I sup
pose he is witing another book. Is he
going to put you into this one, Rachel?
You know I alwavs susoected Jasper
Chase of doing that very thing la his
first story." ' .
"Virginia" Rachel spoke with the
frankness that had always existed be
tween the two friends "Jasper Chase
told me the other night that he la fact
he proposed to me or he would if"
Rachel stopped and sat with her
hands clasped on her lap, and there
were tears in her eyes.
"Virginia. I tbonirht a little while

loved me, but when he spoke my heart
felt repelled, and I said what I ought
' to have said. I told him no. I have not
seem him since. That waa the night of
the first conversions at the Rectangle.."
"I am glad for you." said Virginia
"Why?" asked Rachel a little star
tled "Because I havs never really liked
Jasper Chase. Be is too cold and I do
not like to judge him, but I have al
ways distrusted his sincerity In taking
the pledge at the church with the rest "
Rachel looked at Virginia thought
fully. "I have never given my heart to aim,
I am sur He touched my emotions,
and I admired his skill as a writer. I
have thought at tiiuta that I eared a
good deal for him 1 VrVr whupn If

again tnere were tears oh DertaCe. vir-,
ginia came 'to her and put her, arm
about her tenderly.
When Rachel had left the house, Vir
ginia sat in the hall thinking over the
confidence her friend had just shown
her There was something still to be
told. Virginia felt sure from Rachel's
manner, but she did not feel hurt that
Rachel had kept back something. She
was simply conscious of more on Ra
chel's mind than she had revealed.
Very soon Rollin came back, and he
and Virginia, arm in arm, as they "had
lately been in the habit of doing, walked
op and down the long halL
It was easy for their talk to settle
finally upon Rachel because of the place
he was to occupy in the plans which
were being made ror tne purcnaseoi
the property at the Rectangla
Did you ever know a girl pf such
really gifted powers in vocal musio who
was willing to give" her whole life to
the people, as Rachel is going to do?
She is going to give music lessons in
be city, have private pupils to make
Jer living and then give the people in
the Rectangle the benefit of her culture
and her voice. "
'It is certainly a very good example
of self sacrifice. " replied Rollin, a little
Virginia looked at him a little
"But don't you think it is a very
unusual example? Can you imagine'
here Virginia named half a dozen fa
mous opera singers "doing anything
of this sort t"
."Koi I can't,' . Rollin answered
briefly "Neither can I imagine Miss"
he spoke the name of the girl with
the red parasol who had begged Vir
ginia to take the girls to the Rectangle
"doing what you are doing. Vir
ginia." "Any more than I can imagine Mr. '
Virginia spoke the name of a young
wciety leader "going about to the
clubs doing your work, Rollin."
The two walked on in silence for the
length of the hall
"Coming back to Rachel," began
Virginia, "Rollin, why do you treat
her with such a distant, precise man
ner? I think, Rollin pardon me if I
hurt you that she is annoyed by it
You used to be on easy terms. I don t
think Rachel likes this change. "
Rollin suddenly stopped. He seemed
leeply agitttted. He took his arm from
Virginia s and walked down to the end
of the hall Then he returned, with his
inns behind him, and. stopping near
his sister, he said:
"Virginia, have you not learned my
Virginia looked bewildered. Then
ever her face the unusual color crept,
bowing that she understood.
"I have never loved any one but Ra

when vou talked about her refusal to

and she gave as her reason the fact that
I had no purpose in . life, which was
true enough. . Now that I have a pur;
pose, now that I am a new man, don't
fou see. Virginia, how impossible iU is
for me to say anything? I owe my very
conversion to Rachel's singing, and yet
that night while she sang I can honest
ly say that for the time being I never
thought of her voice except as God s
message. I believe all my personal love
tor her was for the time merged into a
personal love to God and my Saviour.
Rollin was silent. Then he went on
with more emotion. "I am still in love
with her. Virginia, but 1 do not think
the could ever love ma " He stopped
and looked bis sister in the face with a
sad smile ' " ' '
"I don't know about that, " said Vir
ginia to herself. She was noting Rol
lin'a handsome face, its marks of dissi-
fiation . tfearly all gone now, the firm
lps showing manhood and courage, the
clear eyes looking into hers frankly, the
form strong and graceful Rollin was
a man now Why should not Rachel
Loome to love him in time? Surely the
two were well fitted for each other,
especially now that their purpose in
life was moved by the same Christian
She said something of all this to Rol
lin, but he did not find much comfort
When they closed the interview, Vir
ginia carried away the impression that
Rollin meant to go his way with his
chosen work, trying to reach the fash
ionable men at the clubs and, while not
ivoiding Rachel seeking no occasion
for meeting her He was distrustful of
bis power to control his feelings, and
Virginia could see that he dreaded even
the thought that his love was still the
The next day she went down to The
lews office to see Edward Norman and
arrange the details of her part in the
establishment of the paper on its new ,
foundation. Henry Maxwell was pre
ent at this conference, snd the three
agreed that, whatever Jesus would do
in detail as editor of a daily paper, he
would be guided by the same general
principles that directed his conduct as
the Saviour of the world.
"I have tried to put down here in
concrete form some of the things which
it has seemed to me Jesus would do,"
said Edward Norman. He read from
oarer bins' on his desk, and Henry
Maxwell was reminded again of bis
effort to put into written form his own
conception of Jesus' probable action
and also of Milton Wright's attempt in
bis business. .
"I havs headed this. "What Would
Jesus Do as Edward Norman,' Editor of
a Daily Newspaper In Raymond.'
"1. Hs would never allow a senteswe
or a picture in his paper that could be
called bad or coarse or impure to any
"3. He would probably conduct the
poUtiosl part of the paper from the
staodsMBt of peoiwnmp .ratrtorjm-
always loosing' upon au ponracHi qutm
tionsinthe light of their relations to'
the welfare of the people, always on the
basis of 'What is right ?' never from
the basis of 'What is for the best Inter
eats of this or that party?' In othei
words, he would treat every political
subject from the standpoint of the ad
vancement of the kingdom of God on
the earth "
' Edward Norman looked up from the
reading for a moment You under
stand that is my interpretation of Jesus
probable action on political matters on
other newspaper men who may have a
different conception of Jesus' probable
action from 'mine I am simply trying
to answer honestly, 'What would Jesus
do as Edward Norman?' and the answer
I find i what I have put down."
"8. The end and aim of a daily pa
per conducted by Jesus would be to do
the will of God. That Is, his main pur
pose In carrying on a newspaper would
not be to make money or gain political
influence, but his first and ruling pur
pose should be so to conduct his paper
that it. would be evident to all his sub
scribers that he was trying to seek first
the kingdom of God by means of his
paper. This purpose would be as dis
tinct and unquestioned as the purpose
of a minister or a missionary or any
other unselfish martyr in Christian
"4. All questionable advertisements
would be Impossible.
"S. The relation of Jesus to the em
ployees on the paper would be, of the
most loving character. "
"So far as I have gone,-" said Nor
man, again looking up, "I am of the
opinion that Jesus would employ prac
tically some form of co-operation that
would represent the Idea of mutual in
terest in a business where all were to
move together for the same great end. I
am working out such a plan, and I am
confident it will be snccesHfuL At any
rate, once introduce the element of per
sonal love into a business like this, take
out the selfish principle of doing it for
the sake of pergonal profits to a man or
company, and I do not see any way ex
cept the most loving personal interest
between editor, reporters, pressmen and
all who contributed anything to the
life of the paper, and that interest
would be expressed not only In the per
sonal love and sytnputhy, but in a shar
ing with the profits of the business.
"8. As editor of a daily paper today
Jesus would give large space to the
work of the Christian world. He would
devote a page possibly to the facts of
reform, of sociological problems, of In
stitutional church work and similar
"7. He would do all in his power in
his paper to fight the saloon as an enemy
of the human rsoe aud an unnecessary
next of our proton! civilization. He
would do this regardless of public sen
timent la the matter and. of course, al
ways regardless of its effect on bis sub
scription list "
Agsfa Edward Xormaat looked op.
I etas say fenest coovvcij cp.thia
point Of course X do not pass judgment
on the Christian men who are editing
other kinds of papers today, bnt as I
interpret Jesus I believe he would use
the influence of his paper to remove the
saloon entirely from the political and
social life of the natioa
"& Jesus would not issue a Sunday
"9. He would print the news of the
world, that people ought to know.
Among the things that they do not need
to know and which would not be pub
lished would be brutal prizefights, long
accounts of crimes, scandals in private
families or any other human events
which in any way would conflict with
the first point , mentioned in this out
line "10 If Jesns bud the amount of
money to use nn n pnper which we have,
he would probably net-are the best and
