REARS STATUE TO SATAN
Infidel Employs Unusual Method of
Showing Contempt for
Special to The Herald.
DETROIT, Nov. 18.— To show his
contempt for religion Herman Menz, a
contracting stone mason, this morning
unveiled a statue of Satan, which he
had himself erected in front of his
home, No. 306 Stanton avenue. The
neighbors knew he had been erecting
something, but were horrified when
they found the nature of his work.
Church-going people are freely ex
pressing their indignation and there
are hints that the sacriligious statue
may be wrecked.
On the base of the statue Is this in
scription in a sort of dog-Latin:.
"Homo non cRt creatlo, sed evolutlo.
Deus non fecit hemlnem, sed homo
facet deos.'_' (Man Is not a created
being, but the product of evolution.
God did not make man, but man has
Menz has long been an avowed in
fidel, and last summer when evange
lists were holding tent meetings he
appealed to the city council to have
them stopped or" licensed . "like any
other humbug." '
Asked about his unique monument,
he said he didn't believe in God, but
did believe in the devil, so why
shouldn't he erect a statue of him?
The monument Is fourteen feet high
and stands on an elevation command-
Ing a good view of the neighborhood.
Satan is shown in a stooping posture
behind a pulpit. He- looks over the
landscape with a fiendish glare, with
his horns protruding from his head.
Carved in the stone in front of him Is
the big ugly fork.
Menz was born In Germany, but has
lived here twenty-one years. He has
a wife and two daughters who, he
says, share his views.

wounds near the heart and suspected

When they brought O'Brien before
him Wall cringed and said he did not
know how he was hurt. The other

to O'Brien. And well they might: for
never was a trump so sartorially splen
did. He wore, it Is true, the custom
ary flannel shirt, but he wore as well
a suit of evening clothes and a French
opera hat, which he rested gracefully
on his hip when arraigned. He fairly
dazed the court.
