?EV. STRONG'S IDEAS OF HELL.
lt ls Not a Place ol Everlasting Punishment.
Kev. Charles II. Strong, of Savan
nah, Qa., some months ago preached
a sermon upon tho existence of hell
and the kind and character of place
it is. While Mr. Strong avowed his
belief in thc existence of bell, bis
views upon this sub j oct differ very
materially with those held by the
majority of tho ministry.
Mr. Strong's text was from the
words oj the I'sahnis', "If I make
my bead in liol! behold Thou art
lhere." It might be taken as :i fun
damental principle of philosophy and
theology, Mr. Strong said, not only
that Cod is, but that Cod is every
where. We can never llee from his
presence. This being true, there i>
no place in (Jed's universe where Ile
is not, either in beaven or bell.
"I haven often bien asked if I be
lieved in bell," said Mr. Strong. "1
db. I believe in its existence In
cause I believe in the existence ol'
Cod and His righteousness. If (Jed
is everywhere then Mis righteous
ness must bo everywhere. Like the
law of gravitation, which govern*
tho universe, tho law cd' righteous
ness is prescribe?! for man lo obey.
When Ibis law is broken serious hiss
?and disasler billow and this loss and
disaslor ts hell."
The scriptural quotation, "Shall
be turned into hell," Mr. Strong said,
had been interpreted by many theo
logians to mean thal hell is a wal led
in inclosuro with circumscribed motes
mid bounds. Ile held, on tho con
trnry, that bell is created by tb?' ex
istence of sin an?! that wherever tb
sinner goes boll goos with bim. Sin
should not bo lightly regarded nor
laughed at, ho said, for sin is hell and
carries tb?' sling and poison of bo
with it. Tho tendency <d" tin- litera
ture and fiction of the day is lo treat
sin lightly, and so does popular sei
encc, with its leaching that heredity
and environment are responsible for|
men's moral natures and account f
"Hell is because God is," .Mr.
Strong said. "God is everywhere
ail?! bccailSC Ile is everywhere lhere
will como a limo when hell will be
not. If tb?' sinner is in hell, <h>d j-,
there with bim, and, thcrcforo, there
will come a limo when all sin will be
abolished. Wo must realize that
God is stronger than sir. and thal tho
dovil is not more powerful than
Mr. Strong said that there aro tw<>
doors into hell, <>n?' by which tho
sinner enters, by reason Ol bis viola
tion of tho law of righteousness, and
tho Other by which ho makis his
exit from hell by reason of thc right
eousness of God. Sin is a burning
furnace in tho heart, he-aid. If von
violate thc law which Cod bas writ
ten ill your heart, lhere is a burning
hell there, lt i-i well to remember
lhat if you have made your bc 1 in
bell that Cod is lhere also pleading
Mr. Stron;.; said that ho is not and
never has been a li ni vorsahst. ?Many
things have been said of bis opinions
on this subject, ho said, and for that
reason he wished to stale plainly thc
ideas which lu- bad advanced. There
were three ideas w hich bo bad urged
on this question, ho said. Kirsl, bc
had ende-vored lo change mon's con
ception <<l hell from tho old idea ?d'
physical torment and burning. This
was tho idea which Spurgeon and
Johnathan Kdwards had upheld and
they had even endeavored lo enhance
the joys ?d' the righteous by pictur
ing them as enjoying ibo torments of
tin; damned while reveling in eternal
His second idea bail been lo teach
that tho Word "?derna!" in the Ibbie
does not mean everlasting ; that ii
rofors simply lo the things which are
in eternity, or thc world lo come,
and not to time everlasting, li emi
ti?les quality and not quantity.
The third idea, which ho has ad
vanced, Mr, Sining said, is thal there
is nothing in tho physical change in
volved in death that interrupts man's
state of probation, ll is true that
"now is tho accepted time," hut all
time to come. Thal a state <?l pro
balioil exists ill lodi is best evidenced
by tho fad thal ( hi isl descended
into hell after Iiis crucifixion. Why
did llO (IcHCCIld ?Uto hell if it wi re
not to preach to lb?' spirits there and
lo carry th ore tho gnat evangel of
sa I vai n ni ?
.Mr. Strong compared tb?' religions
beliefs of fd) to 100 years ago with
tb? <e of to-day and quoted from tho
Westminster catechism in evidence
of his assortions, Tho Westminster
catechism, he said, holds thal .Adam
foll from a sinless stale ami that ho
ing tho father of all mankind his
guilt was imputed t?i all his posterity.
That (?od, out of his grace, had pro
destin.lia.d BOttiO of Adara's dosoond
ants lo everlasting lifo und others He
had foreordained to everlasting hell,
and that no matter how much these
latter might exert their will to lay
hohl upon this salvation their effort?
would he fruitless and their condem
"That statement as a whole and in
every single clause," said Mr. Strong,
"I repudiate with every moral feel
ing I have in me. On the contrary
I hold that Adam's fall was simply a
passage from the knowledge of good
to tho knowledge of good and ovil,
and that his sin was not imputed to
his descendants. .Such a belief is in
consistent with tho idea of a right
eous God. Such a God I might fear
and obey, but I could novor rever
ence Him. I am not a Univorsalisl,
because I boliovo that Clod has given
us tho power of choosing good, and
also that of choosing evil. Wc have
tho reins of our destiny in our own
Mr. Strong said that he could not
conceive for n moment that Hod
would hold any human being in hell
eternally, even though one die in his
sins and go to hell he still has tho
free will to avil himself of thc grace
of God ottered there. IC von should
be then rofltSO to accept of this graco
he could suffer nothing but thc loss
of God, which comes from sin.
"Christ descended into bell that he
might preach the gospel to thc
spirits imprisoned there. Love al
ways descends into hell. There is
not a hell in this world into which
love docs not descend. Farthers'
and mothers' hearts go down into
hell for their loved and erring sons
and daughters. Not even in hell are
we forsaken. God's love follows us
lhere and pleads with us there.
There is no man in this world, no
matter how inexcusable his sin may
be, who cannot say with tho Psalm
ist, Ml' I make my bcd in bell, lo,
Thou art there.' "

Thc Profit of Thinning Peaches.
A New dorsey poach ??rower said
al tho recent State horticultural con
vention in regard to thinning
peaches : This portion of the work
of peach culture should receive much
attention from the orchard owner.
If too great a number of peaches are
lel'l upon tho I rec (o ripen, one of
two results must surely follow--either
the fruit will be undersized and often
sri inferior in quality and insiped in
llavor as to render it worthless for
market, or else the tree will, from
overwork, become exhausted and
(?nally blight and die.
The most perfect way of thinning
the fruit from trees that are over
loaded is to pick off by hand, leav
ing it from I to t'? inches apart ; but
where help is scarce and economy is
the object, I have seen poles or long
clubs used in removing tho surplus
fruit with good results. There must
be, however, some rule adopted to
determino tho quantity of fruit thal
WC wish lo remain lo ripen upon tho
trees. This ?the individual grower
must largely determine for himself.
When he fully realizes that a peech
tree can successfully ripen only a
?.riven number of pounds of fruit
thc amount varying according to the
age, size, and condition of the tree
-lie will possess knowledge requi
site for correct thinning. Ile must
bear in mind that, the profits of a
peach orchard depend almost solely
upon two features-tho size and
color of thc fruit.
Thc following may prove to be of
sonic value in determining the
amount of fri it that should be left
lo ripen upon tho tree :
Number of peaches, :!nti ; diame
ter, 'J I inclus; baskets, ?1 ; weight
100 pounds. Number of peaches,
000 ; diameter, 1', inches; baskets,
1 ; weight, lu". Number of peaches,
rJi> ; diameter, 'J inches; baskets,
I ; weight, 100.
Accuracy of grading will in the
end enhance tho value of the crops.
Small or largo peaches should be
graded to n ni form size ; but tho
small fruit will not ordinarily pay
shipping ex penses.

To tho Editor of tho State:
In reporting the meeting in /.arline
your correspondent said that "Mr. Cary
declared for tho dispensary." This is
true as far as it goes, hut it docs not
fully set forth my position as announced
at /arline. I.esl. I should hereafter seem
to he inconsistent I think it proper to
doline my position as announced there.
I said that the dispensary plan, when
propel ly and strictly carried out, is the
host method of controlling thc liquor
hallie and of curtailing the evils of
liquor. That it, suits us in Abbeville and
we prefer it. However, since this recent
ad of tho L?gislature on thosubjoet, the
benefits, if there are any, ami thc evils if
them are any, which attend a dispensary
aro con li nod lo tho county in which tho
dispensary is located. This being so, a
county may have a dispensary, or de
cline lo have one, without interfering, in
any way, with the rights of any other
county. I can thoroforo soo no objection
to allowing a county, upon the petition
of one third of its qualified voters, lo vote
lipon tho question of "dispensary"' or
"no dispensary." Should a county vole
"dispensary" allow ono to bo placed in
tho county so voling. .Should 'I.e ma
jority vote "no dispensary," it should
he unlawful to place one in thc county
so voting. Tho dispensaries should ro
main as now located until ( hanged in thc
manner indicated. Surely no county
can object to Abbeville having her dis
pensary if she desires if; on the (?(her
hand, no county should desire, to force
any other county lo accept a dispensary
against the will of its qtUlliflod voters.
I am opposed to open barrooms in any
? form, and believe that tho dispensaries
should he run with a view to curtail
ing the evils of whiskey drinking, ami
not with a view lo making money out ol"
(he hallie. This is the position which I
announced at /arline, ami this is tho po
sition which I shall advocate throughout
I he campaign. EUA NI? ll. (L\ltv.
