VERACITY OF THE BIBLE
After a Visit to the Holy Land Even
a Skeptic Must Be Con
One thing cannot fail to Impress
every visitor to Bethlehem, and, in
deed, to the Holy Land generally, who
is imbued with true Christian faith
and a proper Bense of the sanctity
of the location and of the events that
have transpired there, and that is the
more than remarkable correspondence
between the things and placeB shov/n
us today as having been associated
with the life and work of the Saviour
and other events that enter into the
structure of our religious faith and
the descriptions and accounts of them,
as furnished us in the pages of the
Holy Scriptures. They agree with
them in every respect and it is im
possible, after carefully considering
and comparing them, to doubt their
Identity, so exactly are they in accord
with the Bible narrative.
The work In the fields, the arrange
ment of the buildings, the very arti
cles of diet and clothing of ancient
days are plainly recognizable in the
doings and surroundings of today. In
deed, where modern methods have not
become obtrusive the manners and
customs of the people remain much
the same as in the days of the pres
ence on earth of the Saviour. Be
tween the descriptions given in the
Bible of localities, climatic and geo
graphical conditions, distanc J, etc.,
of these times and those of today
there ls hardly any discrepancy. Even
a skeptic, considering this remarkable
accord of circumstances with the
Biblical narrative, cannot but be con
vinced of its veracity; to the believer
it comes as a wonderful conviction,
a satisfactory corroboration or en
couragement to see things as those
who described them so graphically
saw them so long ago.-Columbian

and you will detect punishment every

is on the street car or on the road.

In winter, it is hard to get fresh air
in certain rooms. Some rooms in a

and if you open the windows it is
hard again to heat the room properly.
If you keep the windows closed
you don't get fresh air; if you keep
them open you cannot quickly reheat
the room. The
