A LAND OF OPPORTUNITY.
IT IS the fashion to lament that
there are no more opportunities
left for the adventurous young men
That has always been the fashion.
Every generation has its quota of
youngsters who believe that in tne
"good old days" all a man had to do
to gain fame or fortune was to fare
forth into the world and take his
pick of the golden opportunities
which were lying around loose for
the first comer to utilize. But in
every generation, fortunately, there
is a goodly percentage of young
men who realize what has always
been true, that we make our own
opportunities and if we have the
spirit, the intelligence and the driv
ing will to succeed there are as
manv opportunities now as there
The only difference between one
decade and that which preceded it
is that the opportunities are of a
different kind, and every man must
find out for himself what the new
kind is. A newspaper man once
asked the late Russell Sage, who
died in the early part of this cen
tury at the age of 90, whether there
were as many opportunities then as
when he was a young man. He said
there were more, and when ques
tioned as to what they were he an-
swered that he had found there was
good money to be made in buying
and selling railroads!
"But how is the young man of
today going to get the opportunity
tn hnv a railroad?" asked the re
"If he ain't smart enough to find
'em, he ain't smart enough to make
money out of 'em," said the old man
with a grin.
The reporter went away convinc
ed that he had been "kidded." Buy
and sell railroads! What an old fogy
Russell Sage was, not to realize that
the railroads were all so tightly
held that nobody but a multi-mil
lionaire could deal in them. But
less than twenty years later the Van
Sweringen Brothers of Cleveland,
starting without a penny, broke into
the railroad business and in ten
years have become the owners of a
railroad system which, if the Inter
State Commerce Commission ap
proves their plan, will be the only
system in America stretching from
coast to coast They did not bewail
the lack of opportunity, but went
out and found their opportunity.
The other day A. P. Giannini an
nounced that he was retiring from
business on his 60th birthday, early
in May. He started work in a fruit
store in San Francisco at the age of
twelve. At 34 he had started the
Bank of Italy in that city. At fifty
he was controlling head of the larg
est chain of banks in the world.
Giannini found his opportunity
where others, less keen, had declar
ed there were no opportunities left.
America has always been the
Land of Opportunity and, please
God, it will always be the Land of
Opportunity for every man who is
intelligent enough to recognize Op
portunity when he sees it and indus
trious enough to work out his own
STANDINGS. AMERICAN motion pictures go
into everv corner of the world.
It is increasingly difficult for pic
ture producers to make films which
will not give offense somewhere. Na
tional pride is hurt when the people
of any race or country are depicted
in characters which are onensive.
The British public protested against
Broken Blossoms," in which Eng
lish people were shown in a deroga
tory light "Street Angel" has been
held by Mussolini's government to
be offensive to Italians. The French
think they were insulted in Beau
Geste." Russians say that "Volga
Rnatman" misrepresents the kus-
sian people. There were riots in
China over the "Thief of Bagdad"
md "Welcome Dancer" in which
the villains were Chinese.
It seems to be true that the only
neode who can be portrayed on the
screen in vicious or criminal char
acters are Americans, if the movies
are to escape censure somewhere
or other. But in that case, what of
the imriression of America and the
Americans which they convey to the
people of other countries?
Rerenrlv a film was snown in
France in which a Marine in Nicar
agua is made to say that he and his
comrades are mere to protect me
interests of big business. Numerous
protest against this film were made
to the authorities at wasningion
who replied that they were power
less to stop its presentation, jjoudi-
less it will be shown everywhere, in
cluding Latin-America, where the
people just now have especially ten
der corns and look upon almost
anything the United States does as
an effort to tread on them.
No intelligent American believes
that we have any imperialistic de
sires toward South America, but our
neighbors down there do believe
that we have, and anything, how
ever trivial, which tends to foster
that belief, is a stupid blunder, if
If people everywhere were gov
erned by reason and thought logic
ally they would understand that the
screen presents fiction, not fact. But
the vast majority of screen aud
iences, including our own, do not
reason. They are governed by their
emotions and beliefs, and they be
lieve that what they see at the mov
ies, if not literally true, is at least
true representation of life and

According to Commander Evan
geline Booth, of the Salvation Ar
my, prohibition has shown some
good results even in New York City,
Before prohibition the Salvation
Armv would collect 1200 to 1300
drunkards in a single night. Imme
diately following prohibition the
number fell to 400, and in a particu
lar test the proportion of actually
intoxicated persons dwindled from
nineteen out of twenty to no more
than seven in all.

New York Times that according to
the Salvation Army report from the
Bowery district, formerly the worst
section of the city, that drinking

JESUS DESCRIBES THE FUTURE
OF THE KINGDOM
Rev. Samuel D. Price, D.D.
During the morning of that last
Tuesday of His ministry Jesus had
necessarily been on the defensive
as Sadducees, Herodians and Phar
isees heckled Him while He sought
to teach in the Temple courts. It
may have been for the usual noon
siesta that He withdrew with His
disciples to the Mount of Olives,
just across the Kedron valley. He
could not be in retirement for
crowds thronged His at every turn.
That afternoon His goodby words
were spoken to the populace for
He never addressed the crowd
again. It is natural in saying fare
well to thing forward to the time
when we will meet in further fel
lowship with those from whom we
are now separating. Jesus did this
very thing. However long it may
be, the earthly life is only the
threshold to the exsitence that is
eternal. During the afternoon hours
the Teacher turned their attention
to facts In the future. The theolo
gical name for "last things" is Es
chatology and that title can be
turned to in a Eible Dictionary for
more specific nistructlon. At this
time read Matthew 25 and 26. These
teachings can well be called "The
Prophecy on the Mount," in distinc
tion from "The Sermon on the
Mount," Matthew 5-6-7.
Letters which come to Query Col
umn, which the writer conducts in
"Christian Herald," Indicate that
multitudes are eager to know more
specifically about the state of the
soul after the death of the body,
recognition of friends in heaven, the
general Judgment with the related
rewards and miseries. It Is natural
to study in advance when about to
make a long Journey and It is in
order to thing also on the facta in
the future life.
Jesus made It very clear, and
other Bible references are equally
direct that there will be a Second

York City than there were licensed
saloons and drug stores. These
were held by persons who did not
want to take a chance on Uncle
Sam, but violated the license laws
of the state and city.
For instance, a patient of mine,
an inebriate, was in delirium trem-
i alcoholic mania; he had not
slept for four days. Having tried
everything else, in despair 1 gave
him a dose of the new "twilight
sleep.'' Well it worked; within five
minutes the man was snoring loud
ly, and almost blue from cyanosis;
he breathed only six times per min
ute! I stayed at his bedside four
teen hours, until the poison wore
away never more anxious before
or since. When he awoke he de
clared, looking wildly about him,
that he had been drugged.
I told him if he hadn't then there
never had been a man drugged. He
immediately ordered his belongings
packed and left town and I didn't
blame him. I blamed myself and
the new "twilight sleep.' Now I
only use the stuff in eighth-grain
doses, to soften the terrible pains in
childbirth and I haven't used it
even that way in fifteen years.
The quack, however, uses "twi-
ligmt sleep" as a slogan, and dopes
his dupes in his own sweet way with
the deadly thing.
Coming to thi3 earth. This is
basic belief for all Christians and
not merely for those who make this
a central teaching in their denom
ination. As in the Old Testament
prophesies the coming of the Mes
siah, so the New Testament tells of
His Return with glory and full rule
on the earth.
To make the matter as clear as
possible a parable is used which sets
forth most familiar facts, for the
details of a local wedding were
known to all. The groom was hav
ing his bachelor dinner with his
friends. A group of women prepar
ed to meet the men on their way
to the bride's home. It was night
and ail would need burning lamps
to lighten the way and to add to
the celebration. While waiting for
the men to come that way, the "ten
virgins" dozed off. Then there was
the outcry, "Behold! the Bride
groom." There was orderly confu
sion while lamps were trimmed but
consternation on the part of those
who found they had no oil to re
plenish the lamps that were going
out. Some things cannot be bor
rowed in a crisis and eternal salva
tion is one. Those who were not
ready learned, too late, that "the
door was shut."
The hour for the return of Christ
to this earth Is also uncertain.
Scripture tells of related events, but
even Jesus declared the time was
only in the mind of the Father. In
all ages since, some have prophesied
the exact time of His Second Com
ing and all thus far have been
wrong. That He will come again
is as sure as ever. But in the uncer
tainty as to the exast time all can
be prepared. The Golden Text is a
safety exhortation: "Take ye heed,
watch and pray; for ye know not
when the time is," Mark 13:33.
Those who live In constant fellow
ship with Him will surely be ready.
Believers who are meanwhile with
Him In glory will return with Him
for the resurrection of their bodies
and an earthly reign of righteous
ness. Some of the attendant details
are found in I Thessalonlans 4:13-5:11.
had dropped 60 per cent. The Army
took charge of the Bowery hotel in
1920. Every night, especially on
Saturday night, men had to be eject
ed for creating disturbances, while
today, in the Memorial hotel, where
the Army houses 4800 men a week,
there are not more than four or five
cases of intoxication, or one in 1000.
In the days of the licensed saloon
the Bowery section was notorious
for more than 100 years as the great
crime center of the metropolis, if
not of the country. Under the li
censed saloon the gangster organi
zations were thoroughly entrenched,
and concert halls and gambling
clubs of a most vicious character
were doing business in a high hand
Commander Booth says that po
licemen, some of them now retired,
told her that the Bowery and Third
Avenue was a veritable hell on
earth from the vice and brawls that
went on in the former days. These
same' policemen now tell of a won
derful change brought about in a
reeion of quietness for the neighbor
hood since prohibition came, in
the opinion of Commander Booth,
as quoted in the Literary Digest two
"blind tigers in one block are ret-
ter than one saloon. She also says
that no middle ground is possible,
Permit light wine and beer, under
whatever control, and there would
be exactly the same forces to break
down regulation that are today or
ganized against prohibition.
It might be well in connection
with the above items, culled from
Commander Booth's raticle, to call
attention to the fact that in the
days of the licensed saloon "blind
pigs, "speakeasies, and bootleg
gers" flourished in New York City,
when every licensed saloon was in
sisting upon the suppression of the
unlicensed dealers. Theodore Koose
velt, when police commissioner of
New York City, found that there
were upwards of 4000 more federal
licenses issued to persons in New
The earwig has become so well
established in Oregon that its total
eradication cannot be expected by
the use of poisons, which is still the
standard method of control, says
the Oregon Experiment station. All
that can be hoped for is a reduction
of numbers of the pest.
Because the maggots of the cher
ry fruit fly, which has been causing
serious damage to the cherry crop
in parts of Oregon in recent years,
are hatched under the skin of the
fruit, the only method of control Is
through an attack on the fly. The
active period of this insect is con
fined to a few weeks in June and
early July. The formula for the
sweetened poison bait spray, the
time for spraying, a description of
the fly and its life habits are con
tained in a revised edition of Circu
lar 35 of the Oregon Experiment
station, "The Cherry Fruit-fly." The
bulletin is available upon request.
It is best not to allow rape seed
to shatter on fields where it is not
wanted, as the seed is oily and may
live in the soil for many years, says
the Oreeon Experiment station.
Where shattering has taken place,
the best course is to let it sprout,
then disk and work shallow at in
tervals before plowing. It is usual
ly best not to fall-plow such land,
as letting the seed lie exposed on or
near the surface through the winter
