INTIMATIONS OF IMMORTALITY
If the Father deigns to touch with divine power,
the cold and pulseless form of the buried acorn to
cause it to burst forth from its prison walls, will
He leave neglected in the earth the soul of man, made
in the image of his Creator: If he stoops to give to
the rose bush, whose withered blossoms float upon
the Autumn breeze, the sweet assurance of another
Springtime, will he refuse the words of hope to the
sons of men when the frosts of Winter come?
If matters, mute and inanimate, though clothed
by the forces of nature into a multitude of forms,
can never die, will the spirit of man suffer anihila
tion when it has paid a brief visit, like a royal guest,
to this tenement of clay?
No, I am as sure there is another life as I am that
I live today.
In Cairo I secured a few grains of wheat that had
slumbered for more than three thousand years in:an
Egyptian tomb. As I looked upon them, this thought
came into my mind. If one of those grains had been
planted on the banks bf the Nile the year after it
grew and if all its lineal descendants had been plant
ed and re-planted from that time unti,l now, their
progeny would today be sufficiently numerous to
feed the teaming millions of the world.
If thdre is in the grain of wheat the power to dis
card the body that we see and from earth and air to
fashion a new body so much like the old one that we
can not tell the one from the other: I shall not doubt
that my soul has power to clothe itself in a body suit
ed to its new existance when this earthly body has
crumbled into dust. William J. Bryan.
TRIBUTE TO A DEAD AGNOSTIC
He has lived his life. We should shed no tears ex
cept the tears of gratitude. We should rejoice that
he has lived so long. In nature's course his time had
come. The four seasons were complete in him. He had
taken Life's seven steps. The measure of his years
When the day is done, when the work of life is fin
ished, when the gold of evening meets the dusk of
night under the silent stars the tired laborer should
fall asleep. When the old oak is visited in vain by
Spring; when light and rain no longer thrill it is not
well to stand, leafless and alone. Better to fall where
Nature softly covers all with woven moss and creep
How little after all, we know of what is ill or well.
How little of this wondrous streamof cataracts and
pools, this stream of Life that rises in a world un
known and flows to that mysterious reaflm from
whose bourn no traveller returns.
How little of this Life we know. This straggling
way of light twixt gloom and gloom, this bit of land
by verdure clad between the unknown wastes; this
dream that lies between the shadowy shores of sleep
love, we hope, we disappear; again we mingle with
the dust and the knot intrinsicate forever falls apart.
But this we know. A noble life'enriches'all the world.

EDUCATION VS. WHITE SLAVE
Every now and thon you hear some
ono talking of how to do away with
white slavery that curse of human
ity that has been dragging young girls
down to the lowest deptsh of sham.;.
Can it be stopped? If so, how? Can
it be eliminated? May be. How? Uy

not speaking on this subject just to be
speaking or to be speaking in spiteful
terms. I speak as an observer and a

man mind and intellect. That's why ed

Of recent times there has been in
the musical line published, music
known as rag time. According to the
deductions of the World's .greatest
musical composers and experts, this
will never be classed as music at all.
Because as good music when heard by
people who like such, operates upon
their sympathy and emotion, so docs
Hag time operate upon their animal
passions. Why! Mecause not only tnci

Another thing when school teach

girls to do such indecent dnncing as
Ragging, besides doing the same thing
themselves then why can you won
der at the looks of things?
While visiting a school on the vicin
ity of this coast I observed a lady
teacher playing ragtime music and
teaching and allowing such children
boys and girls of four and five years
old to Jo the worst kind of ragging.
The teacher, when asked, said she be
leved rag-time was the thing. There
foro why is it that young girls aro
dragged down to ruin? Why? Be
cause some parents of pupils agree
ith this teacher that an indecent
uunce is thu thing because it is popu
,ur. That's the case.
Vina is the way of shame.

taken by their parents to closed ,111
dance halls where they are allowed to
dance with drunken men and tough and

nardly in their teens are taken to such

vVutch the ragging.
