Bill Talks on the Sin
Wo ere not distressed ai (ho over
throw; of Tammany in New York.
Seventy years ia long enough for a
party or a politioal pawer to rule a
great metropolis. \ Corruption breeds
moro maggots as the city grows, for,
as Thornes Jefferson said: "The
growth of great oities is - pestilential
to good morals.' ' The public treasury
ia a thiog to be plundered. ?*?j?*her it
ba muoioipal, state or national. There
are thousands of men who would not
steal from me, but would steal tho
mo?oy I pay into the treasury, for
there it bsoome? so mised np that
nobody knows whose money it is. It
is just aa it was two hundred years
ago, when Swift wrote:
"Great fleas haye little fleas upon their
backe to bite 'ena,
And attie fleas have leaser fleas, and so
on ad infinitum."
There ia one comfort about all this
publio plunder. . Tho money does not
go dead. It has to be invested and
gi voa employment to labor. A mil
lionaire can't eat nor wear out muoh
more than I can, nor will he look up
hie money and let it rest. Not long
ago I asked a clever Northern man
why it was that the jrjtoh people who
pay the most of the taxes let the pen
sion steal go on so long and get bigger
every year? He smiled and said:
"Why that pension money gooB mostly
to the poor and we get it all baok
sooner or later. It is our cheapest
way of supporting them, especially
when we have >our help." Poor Oar
it eld. In his last message he lament
ed that the pension rolls had got to the
alarming sum of $30,000,000, but said
there was comfort in knowing that it
was obliged to decrease from natural
causes, for death wee the common lot
and the pensioners were rapidly de
creasing in number. He was mis
taken. They have been multiplying
ever since he was killed, and now it
takes $150,000,000 to pay the roll.
Publio plunder would not be so bad
if it was done in the open. What ag
gravates us is that it is done on the
ely through corruption, through
bribes, franchises, charters, lioenses,
salaries and sohemes. It always vexes
me to see the cook hiding something
or ber child carrying off a bundle on
the sly and hiding it under ber apron
as she is going home. But they are
all so kind and so willing and so good
to the children that we saw wood and
say nothing. They remind me of
what a blind phrenologist said of a
publio official iii Borne while feeling
the bumps on his head. He did not
know him at all, but said, "This map
? J kind-hearted and good-natured and
would do you a favor if yon were in
distress, but he will a teal. If ho
found a man asleep alone in a room at
night he would slip his purse from out
bia pocket, but would kiss bim before
ho left him." He diagnosed the man
correctly, for he was turned out of
office soon after for embezzling the
publio money, and everybody was
corry for him because he was so gen
erous with bis plunder. Stealing
from the publio crib seems to be a
nigher grade of orime than lying,
though it takes lying and hypocrisy
and deoeit to accomplish it. I have
often wondered why lying was not for
bidden in the * Ten Commandments.
"Thou shalt not steil" is there, but
"thou ehalt hot lie" is not there, and
yet ii is ?u??r??u ail through toe
scriptures and is the last sin recorded
in the last ohapter of Revelations and
in nearly the last verse. "For with
out are dogs and sorcerers, and whore
mongers and murderers and whomso
ever loveth and make a lie." Ac
cording to David, that sin did not
leave very many to enter heaven, for
he saya, "I said in mine haste all men
are liars." The old Scotch preacher
took it for a text and his first remark
was, "Ah, David, me mon, if ye had
waited until now ye might have said
it at your leisure." Lying is no doubt
the most universal sin among man
kind, but ib is graded and not always
a sin. Stealing io always a sin, but
lying must bo malignant or harmful.
Paul eent Titus to Crete and wrote to
him that ho would have a hard time in
estaMishing a church there, for the
Cretans were nil liars. Crete is Can
dia now, an island in the Mediterran
ean, inhabited by Mohammedans
chiefly, and travelers say that they
are no better now thao thoy were in
St. Paul's day, for they are not only
liars, but thieves. England used io
have laws to punish common scolds,
common drunkards and common vaga
bonds, but none to punish common
' liars, for they are generally harmless.
Every community baa one or two and
they keep ns amused at their Mun
chausen exploitsia banting and fish
ing and their narrow escapes. Then
there are some uncommon liars-liars
of thc first magnitudo as Shakespeare
calla them, such as Baron Munchau
sen, Joe Mnlhattan and some Chicago
editors and preachers. Some of these
LS of th? IPresent I>ay
get into the pulpit and mike up pa
thetic stories and thrilling incidents
?? emphasize their sermons and crea-.e
a sensation. And there are thou 8?uda
of little white lies, society lies that
have to be told for civility's sake
lie J that flatter and please the visito?,
the customer or the patient. All
these are spoken lies, but there are as
Z?m?j ?uteri nen in trading, such as
concealing the truth and putting the
best on top. Io faot, everybody lies
mors or less except children and fools,
though most of us mean no harm by
it. My old partner used to say that
some mighty olever men would bs
shut crt of heaven for swearing a lie
to their tax returns, for David says,
"Lord, who shall abide in Thy taber
nacle; who shall dwell in Thy holy
hill-he that speaketh the truth in
his heart and sweareth to his own hurt
and oh ange th not."
Withholding what is due to the
state is as bad as stealing from it.
And withholding whst a man ought tc
ffivs to the ohuroh he belongs to is
almost as great a sin as that of Ana
nias. It is stealing from God. Noth
ing that a member of the ohuroh can
do so readily fixes his oharaoter as a
Christian as his willingness to give all
that he can aeoording to his means.
Tithes and offerings have come down
to us from Cain and Abel in an un
broken line. Cain was a bad man, but
he paid his tithes. He was the first
liar on record-the devil excepted.
Then there are the lies published
every day in the great daily papers
political lies, oommeroial lies and
medical lies to catch the ignorant and
unsuspecting; some reporters lie to
Bhow their diligence in business.
High coloring, veneering, varnish
ing are essential qualities in a repor
ter, whether his journal be white or
yellow. He must lie a little, even
though it has to be taken back or
modified the next day. And so the
world wags on and the people have be
come so accustomed to lies that they
make allowance for everything they
hear or read. When the historian
wanted to oap the climax of General
Washington's noble character he wove
in thot little story of the cherry tree
and made the boy to say: "Father, I
cannot tell, a lie." And so I hope
that all our little boys will grow up to
be truthful men. Don't go behind
the barn and smoke a cigarette, for
that is telling a lie to your father.
You oan tell a lie by winking your
eyes or pointing yonr finger or con
cealing what you do from your parents
or your teaoher. If you do wrong own
it like a gentleman and you will have
their respect as well as your own.
But the downfall of Tammany was
no defeat of the New York democracy
-for there were as many good demo
crats as republicans on that fusion
tioket and they will help Low to olean
out the Augean stables. So let the
' procession proceed.

ABOUT THE OLD BOY.
Prevalent Notions are Generally at Seri
The folio wi DJS Bible study by Be v.
J. B. Mack, of Fort Mill, and pub
lished in the Charlotte Observer re
cently, is quite interesting:
What ?B thy greatest bindranoe to
the triumph of Christianity?
It is not the barrooms; nor the danoo
, hall; nor the gambling saloon; nor any
, of those lesser evils whioh some eaint
, ly souls delight to denounoe.
! It ia the negleot of the Bible, the
; failure to regard the Word of Cod as
. the only sword of the Holy Spirit, the
adulteration of Scripture truth with
[ the notions of men. Both the church
i and the clergy are prone to teach the
i traditions or the eiders or tue reiios
, of Paganism and Popery, or the half
i truths of their own denomination, as
eternal verities, and as the voioe of
As an example of such erroneous
and injurious teaohings, see the com
mon idea of pulpit and pew in regard
If you ask, "Where is Satan's
home, and what is his personal ap
pearance?" at least nine out of ten
will reply, "His home is in hell, and he
is dark and repulsive in his personal
appearance." Yet the Bible teaches
us that both of these answers are un
1. Hell is not the home of Satan.
Yea more; it never has been; and the
Bible asserts that more than one thou
sand years must pass by before Satan's
feet can cross the threshold of hell.
To deny thia is to deny the testimony
of the Holy Ghost as repeatedly given
in God's Word.
Six times since Adam's day, in the
Old Testament ia Satan seen. Where
is he found, and in whose company?
In the third chapter of Genesis he
ia seen in Eden, the garden of God;
and in company with Eve, a pure and
In the xxii chapter of I Kings he is
seen in heaven, in company with an
gels, and is permitted by the Lord to
deseend to earth on a message of de
ceit. . .
In the xxi chapter of I Chronicles
he is seen in the holy oity of Jerusa
lem, and in company with David, the
kingly representative of God on earth.
In the first and second chapters of
Job he is twice seen in heaven, and
both times with the holy angels, and
also conversing with God.
In the third ohapter of Zachariah
he is again seen in tho presence of
. Jehovah, and there to resist that One
who is the priestly representative of
God for man.
Not one iota of the Old Testament
has the slightest intimation that Sa
tan has yet ever been even in the
neighborhood of bell. Precisely the
opposite is true, for he is always seen
eithef in heaven or on earth. -
Does the New Testament give the
slightest hint that Satan haa aa yet
ever been one moment in hell?
In the third ohapter of Matthew he
is seen with Jeans Christ ia three
places; in the wilderness, on a moun
tain and on the temple in Jerusalem.
Next he ia seen near Chriat and with
Peter, the leader of the apostles. Next
he is near, or in the room where Christ
and his di soi pies are celebrating the
Passover, and he ia dealing with Ju
das, the treasurer and only official of
the chosen twelve. Next he is seen
in the great revival, where Ananias
was prominent. Then time and again
i was he with Paul, so that in I Thes
salonians ii, 18, it ia written, "Where
fore we would have oome unto you,
even I, Paul, once and again; but
i Satan hindered us."
Neither in the Old Testament, nor
in the New Testament is there one
jot or tittle of evidence to prove that
Satan bas as yet or ever seen a single
gleam of the lurid fires, of hell, or even
smelt one particle of smoke thereof.
To say that hell haa been, or ia now,
. his home, ja to discount and deny the
, testimony of the Holy Ghoat.
2. How doea Satan appear? Ia it
' with a human foco and a dark faoe,
wreathed with sardonio grina. lu it
) with scale-like flesh, with bat-like
wings, with sharp borna and cloven
i feet and forked tail?' Suoh is his ap
' pearanoe aa constantly told in prose
[ and poetry and picture. Our ohild
. ren are shown auoh pictures in the
i nursery, and our youth read them in
' the thrilling words of Dante, Milton
i and John Bunyan. Being thus train
ed up in the way they should not go,
. when they are old they do not depart
But how differently does God'e
1 Word speak. The Holy Ghost,
1 through Paul, testifies that he appears
1 aa "an angel of light;" and by Eze
kiel that he is a perfeot beauty." He
t is called "the anointed cherub"-nol
r an ordinary angel, hut one exalted
, above bia fellows, being anointed li Icc
i kings and priests. His moral char'
> aeter is hideous for he ia a liar am1
i murderer; but bia mental power ii
- immense and his personal appearance
attractive and magnetic.
i Thus the ideas current among ut
t concerning Satan came not from th<
V Bible. They came origoally, from Pa
> ganiam wbioh prevailed in Babylon
- the city built by Nimrod, the son ol
( Cush, and tho grandson cf Ham. Ai
he B?eras to have journeyed eastward
to reach Babylon, he may have ear
rie* thia idea of a "black devil" (this
"zernebogus" as he was called), with
him from Africa. At any rate the
dark hoe of the Cushito is OD it, and
the fetid odor of the negro is in it.
Lot us accept tbe testimony 'f the
Bible on this subject, and reaine who
Satan is; whence he oame; what is his
missiou; where ho dwells; and whither
he will at last go. Then will we begin
dearly to behold the glory of his
great oonquerer and counterpart,
Jesus Christ. For as the shadows in
a pioture bring out more clearly and
fully the lights theroof, and thus ren
der that pioture more perfeot, io the
real oharaoter, history and doom of
Satan will reveal more dearly and
fully the divine radiance of our King
and ?rove tb? infinit? and eternal
greatness of his salvation.

Superstition oa the Farms.
"Superstition is more prevalent
among t?.e American people than is
generally supposed," said a book
agent, "and even thee hard-headed,
intelligent farmers are, to a certain
extent, aili ic tod with it.
"I remember asking a farmer 60
years old, a man of moro than ordin
ary intelligence, the owner of 1,000
aores of fine land, well stocked, and
who had several thousand dollars in
honda and other securities, why he
did not build himself a better house.
The one he lived in was old, small
and dilapidated, a relio of tho days
when he was poor.
" 'Afraid to,' was the reply.
"'Afraid of what?' I asked.
" 'Well, you Bee, I have always
heard that when an old man builds a
new house he never lives loDg to use
"I laughed, but he waa perfeotly
serious, and I found that in that
neighborhood the superstition was
generally believed in.
"Another saying was commoo in
the locality. "The man who plants a
tree generally lives to enjoy its fruit.'
Tho belief in these sayings was shown
by the number of poor farmhouses
and the number of fine orehards in
" 'Seed eorn shelled at night grows
best,' ia another saying frequently
used in the corn belt. A farmer's
son suggested that it was invented by
the old man as an excuse foi- making
the boys work at night.
" 'Things plantod during tho dark
of the moon produce the best roots' is
so generally accepted as true that
vegetables like potatoes, turnips,
beets, carrots, and onions are planted
during the light of the moon by few
people. Many scientific farmers be
lieve in this superstition.
" 'The farmer who refuses water to
a traveler's horse will see his own live
6took suffer from thirst before the
end cf thc year,' is a belief so com
mon in some looalitica as to insure
oourteous treatment to all travelers.
"Some farmers will wring the neck
of a hen if she crowe. They Bay a
orowing hen bringa bad luck tc the
farmer, and as I heard one old farmer
remark, 'sets the wimmen folks a bad
" 'Borrowedeggs always hatch,' is a
saying probably invented by some
stingy man as an excuse for borrow
ing, but it is so generally believed in
some neighborhoods that a regular

superstitions are so generally believed
