We listened to the discussion hy Hur-
gessand t.'nderwood of the fiuestlons:
"Is the lllble Historically Untrue;', and
"U the lllble Scientifically Cntrue?'
Mr. i .1 r.Hiod afllriueil nnd Mr. Hur
We were expected to be very much In
teresieii in these discussions, hut we
emibl not be ; Wniise In the first place,
wc believe no good will result from the
debate, and, next, became neither of the
disputants manifested any considerable
ability. Mr. Underwood has at Ids
tongue's cud all tho clap-trap of lulldcl
Ism. He asks, as nil Jnlldcls
do, with a wle look', "How
about the ark V" and, "Where did Cain
git his wifer" and "How about that
miraculous conception?" Heshles this,
he mattcr a little In geology and as
tronomy, nnd mathematics; talks about
tne mil philosophers ; oars above com
prehension and evolves mysteries, leading
hi hearers Into Jumbled terms of mean
lnglc Import orliieoinprelienslble meali
ng. All this he does lu a school-boyMi
manlier, without force, leavlnir upon hl
audience Hie impulsion Hint he might
have done much more than he did do an
Impression of di-satl-fiicUon dllliciilt to
Mr. Ilurges U a tall, black-looklng
man. He bears Iilinsir swaieerlshlv
mil ii-cs his tongue with some skill.
IMilently he has a little learnlm.' him
tasteilat leastoftheTierlaii spring, and Is
imxloiis to air Ids knowledge. When In
got hold of the Hebrew word forllnua-
merit he stuck to It with all the tenacity
if a cockle burr to the wool of a sin-en.
ill- manlier In this part of the discussion
was oppressive. It seemed to say:
'You ec, my dear hearers, that 1 am a
Hebrew schola.. and this fellow Under
wood Is not. A Hebrew scholar-Is a
great man, and you ought tobeMirprlsed
lo learn that I am gnat In this way
a- well as In so many other respect".
Therefore and I ask your particular at
tention to the force of this point the
lllble Is not sclcntillcally untrue."
Underwood Is not strong, nnd Hurgcss Is
not weak. Underwood lacks force because
he is a professional debater without or
iginal genius, lie Is uot learned ; he Is a
".tuffed" disputant. Ihirgess li not
weak, becauce he Is emphatic, aud be
lieves a pithy sentence, flavored with a
little rudeueas or barcatm, Is better than
nn argument with a mixed audience.
When Underwood say-: "Flood!"
jiurge-s replies, Willi a sneer:
"Nell, what of it? You can't
prove that it was much of a shower alter
all .'" When Underwood says : "Mo,es
was not scientific because he believed
God made light before he made the sun,"
Ilurge-s says: "This Is a- I expected.
Mr. Underwood asserts hut he produces
no authorities. It Is true he has occa
sionally ventured to quote from straps
cut from the dally Dawn of Creation,
a very unreliable pajier; and lu this way
sivks to put Moes down. I have read
from Herodotus to prove that Moso
knew what he was talking about, but this
authority Is bri(hcil aside. In view of
tlice facts I ask you If .Mr. Underwood
has not failed to knock the pins from un
der Mo-es, who on the mount tood face
to face with .Jehovah, while round hU
head (lie lightning Hashed. I am surprised
that the gentleman Is so weak,
and I ask hlni to rle up now, If he can,
and at my expense of time dare to tell me
that this argument that I have made In
favor of Mo-es Is not as .sound as thu
eternal bills. Ah, the gentleman docs
not accept the invitation. It is as I
thought." Then Underwood apolo
getically replies, and weakly flings tho
Hood about again, "which Hurgcss
gathers together and puts Into a wash
bowl, exclaiming: "Shall this great
book be put aside for o small an amount
ol watery Never !"
Aud sx on. Of course we oiutiit in I. ,
delighted. 'We ought to say : these are
great men; but we can't. We don't be
