l - -WILL RELIGION STAND THE TEST?
(Copyrighted by the San Jose Mercury.)
This is a critical and an analytical age. No statement
bearing upon any understanding of fact or belief, Jiowever
long accepted and relied upon, is free from the application
of the analytical process of the modern scientist and thinker.
Fifty years ago the chemist told us there were a Certain num
ber' of indissoluble elements, and for years this statement
was accepted as. an established fact. .: But in these later years
chemists have been experimenting with these elements, with
the' result that a large part of these have been discovered to
be two or more elements in combination. And now the num
ber of indissoluble elements has been greatly increased.
The modern scintist has carried his research into the air
to discover its secrets and has penetrated the depths of the
earth to find out. not only what is hidden there, but as well

studying the relations of one people or nation to another with
a view to finding the causes that lead to war, with its terrible
effects. He is also studying the relations existing between
groups of people in a single naion, with the view of promot
ing a. better understanding between them, to the end that
class suffering and industrial strife may be avoided.
The scientist has gone even further than this and has
entered upon a far-reaching investigation of the origin of

tion. .He is seeking demonstrable truth,. and anything that
will not stand the test of critical analysis is discarded as
. worthless;. The process may seem irreverent and shocking
to many. .It will destroy many cherished beliefs and make it
necessary to change our mode of life and of thinking in many
ways. But he asks, "Who wishes to live in a fool's paradise?

-' - J ' .
The analytical examination that has for some years been
applied to things material has lately begun to be turned on
things' ethical and religious, and it is to be expected that hu
man -sentiments and religious beliefs and practices- will be
subjected to the same critical examination and analysis that
has for some years been employed in the study of material
things. - Many will protest ' violently at any such study of
religion and its teachings,' basing their objection upon the
ground that religion is founded upon the Bible, that the Bible
is the word of God, and to question or deny it is sacrilege
r.and blasphemy, ... ;---;':V;'-v.-:--; : --
The modern investigator meets this attitude with the as-
... sertion that it' might be very enlightening and profitable to
find out how much of the Bible is the word of God and what
of it Is the interpolation of ancient writers and the doctrine
of religious teachers of an age long past. He asserts that if
God is the Creator and Ruler of all things He must have ac
curate knowledge concerning all things, and if He has made
a revelation to man touching man's creation and his relation
to God, his Creator, this revelation must be true, and capable
of withstanding the most critical and far-reaching analysis
He further asserts that if such research and analysis re
veals the fact that the assertions believed to be the word of
God are in any respect not in accordance with demonstrable
truth, it is fair to assume that these assertions are not the
word of God, and that man has been deceived in accepting
them as such. Again he asks, "Who would wish to live in a
The religious analysis is not yet far advanced, but in
harmony with the tendency in other lines of thought it is to
be expected that in the not distant future it will be carried to
lengths that cannot now be dreamed of. Already men are
beginning to ask what is religious sentiment and what is its
effect upon human life? What is the mental attitude of the
religious devotees who kneel in adoration before the image
of the crucified Jesus, or who listen with absorbed attention
to the eloquent description of His acts of loving ministration
and His subsequent suffering on the cross that His followers
might be relieved from sickness and saved from the terrible
consequences of sin? Are they thinking only of the adora
tion and worship due from them to this sanctified Savior
because or what He has done for them?
vf.'Dotheycfeel no responsibility, resting upon themselves
further than that of accepting His sacrifice for them with
gratitude and love? Or do they see the unfoldment of the
Divine Spirit in the child born in the manger, with increasing
manifestations of wisdom and power as He advances in years,
up to the experience of cleansing the leper by the touch of
His holy spirit and that of turning the wicked from their sins
by the power of His word?
As they sit in contemplation of this sanctified life do
they feel the moving of His spirit within them that prompts
them to emulate Him in life and deeds? Do they see in His
life and power the possibilities that lie dormant within them
selves and are they moved to ask His aid in unfolding these
latent possibilities within them? Are they so impressed with
the glory and power of His life as to be fired with a desire
all consuming to model their lives after His and to seek to
make their spirits likened unto His? Does worship to them
mean a season of thanksgiving for the blessings bestowed or
expected from a risen Lord, or is it a period in which their
own souls are exalted and purified by the touch of the in
spiration that reaches them from the all pervading spirit of
God? These are some of the questions already being asked
by the modern religious analysis.

in his funeral sermon over the
late General Odell:)
William H. Odell was bora in
Carroll county, Indiana, Decem
ber 2 S. 1830, and died in Port
land, Oregon. April 26. 1922, at
the ripe age of 91 years and four
His father's name was John
Cdell, and his mother's maiden
name was Sarah Holman. The
former was a native of South
Carolina and the latter of Kentucky.
The Odell family crossed the
plains to Oregon in 1851. John
Odell became interested in the
Oregon country through the let
ters of Jason Lee published In the
Western Christian Advocate, and
the final Impact that started him
on the long journey was the di
vision In the Methodist church
tover the slavery question. Of
the trip to Oregon William H.
Odell said: "I drove a prairie
schooner whose motor power was
four yoke of oxen. There were
16 wagons in our train and we
never lost a steer coming across
Tbe family settled on a dona
tion land claim in Yamhill coun
ty, about five miles south of Day
ton. Two years later William H.
Odell became a student in Wil
lamette university, where he fell
under the gracious influence of
Dr. F. S. Hoyt. the president.
whom he held in reverence to the
day of his death.
In 1853 he married Mrs. Sam-
eel R. Thurston, an accomplished
woman, and the widow of one of
Oregon's lirst delegates to con
gress. For several years they
lived on his farm in Yamhill coun
ty,' then tbey moved to Lebanon
and took charge of Santiam acad
emy. This move .was the begin
ning of a new career, and one of
marked distinction, as the fol
lowing facts will Indicate.
From Lebanon tney moved tsfT
Albany, where they taught in she
public schools. In 1884 Eugene
was their home, where Mrs. Odell
opened a private school, and Mr.
Odell took up the practice of sur
veying. He held the office of
deputy United States surveyor
of public land3 from 1864 to
1871, when he became surveyor
general of Oregon. In 1876 he
was one of the Republican nom
inees for presidential elector, and
was appointed messenger to take
Oregon's vote to the national cap
ital.' He was editor and publish
er of the Salem Statesman from
1877 to August 18, 1884, and dur
ing the last two years of that
period, he served also as state
printer. About this time he was
appointed postmaster at Salem,
serving under President Arthur,
and continuing in that Office dur
ing the administration of Presi
dent Cleveland. Later he was
assigned to the work of alloting
lands to the Indians on the Siletz
Indian reservation, and in 1895
Governor Lord appointed him
clerk of the state land board at
Salem, which position he filled
for four years.
Mrs. Odell died March 31, 1890,
and was buried from this church.
Four yearsand two months later.
May 23. 1894, General Odell was
married to Mrs. Carrie Taylor of
Kentucky. She died In Salem
July 4, 1919, the funeral being
al?o in this room. Both of these
good women served in eome de
partment of Willamette univers
ity, and both are honored with
memorial rooms in Lausanne
Hall, useful tokens of Mr. Odell'3
affection and esteem.
As a churchman William II.
Odell was an outstanding figure
for almost seventy years. His
home environment was favorable
for the creation of such a char
acter. John Odell, the founder of
the family in Oregon,, was alive
to the awful need of God, and
did wihat he could to supply it.

He bailt a church near his home
in IndUna. He called it Kebo

church in the vicinity of Dayton
in Yamhill county, about 185T,
which he called "Ebenexer Chap

the Scriptures phrase it, and ir,
later life, he flourished in the
courts of our God.
His Christian activities began
at Dayton. Bishop Ames came to
Oregon in 1853 to organize the
Oregon Conference of tbe Metho
dist Episcopal Church. Salem was
the seat of the conference, and
the bishop came to Dayton, on
the Yamhill rtveT, by boat. whre
he was met by John Odell, who
entertained him over . night, and
sent him to Salem the next day
mounted on a gentle horse. The
bishop's guide on the journey was
the son of his host, William Odell,
then a young roan of 22.
When the first Sunday school
was organized in Dayton In 1859
he was elected superintendent,
and he served in the same capac
ity at Ebeneser Chapel. Steps
were taken to build a church in
Dayton in 1839 when a building
Committee was appointed. The
committee consisted of D. M.
Jesse, L. T, Woodward and W. H

church was dedicated by Bishop
Simpson. I am dwelling on these
things because they were the be

Much of the life cf W. H. Odell
belongs to the htstory of Wlllam
ette university. He was the
fourth president of the board of
trustees, his predecessors being
Jason Lee, David Leslie and Jo
siah L. Parrish. In his day the
university sailed a stormy sea
and was compelled to labor with
stress of weather. The story of
those years may never be told.
nor the value of his service fully
understood; but the university
was saved from disaster by the
faith and genius of William II.
Odell. Oune dark day, when

ily have involved all the holdings
of the university, he made it pos

For many years he was chair
man of the board of trustees of
First church, Salem; and he rep
resented the laymen of she Ore-!
gon Conference in the General
Confer en nee of 1900.
The last days of Brother Odell
were full of dignity and beauty.
Though overtaken by .physical in
firmities, his mind .was clear, and
his soul grew brighter day by
day. In a written statement
found among his papers, after his
death, he said: "With an un
faltering trust I hope my soul will
be given a blissful entrance into
the paradise of God, in commun

Then he added: "May there be

An Old Man's Confession of Faith
A few months ago William H.
Odell wrote an article entitled.
'Longing After Immortality.'
which Is really, "An Old Man's
Confession of Faith." In his last
days Milton used to say, "I am
thinking of Immortality. 1 am

That Is what Brother Odell did.
He wrote: ' - -
