A prominent health officer recently
stated that of the 100,000 pupils of
the New York City public, schools
who failed to bo promoted, fully half
60,000 children are hold -back by
defective eyesight and not by lack
This authority states:
"It Is amazing how many persons
there nro In tlio United States suffer
ing from defective eyesight. In tho
first draft of tho American soldiers
In 1917 bad eyesight caused nearly
three times na many rejections as
any other physical detect. At tho
time of this draft p, 010,706 men, be
tween the ages of 21 nnd 31,were
examined-and 730, 7EC, or 29,11 per
cent, wore rejected for physical rea
sons. One table, based upon tho re
jection of 10,208 men from repre
sentative sections of the country,
showed that 2,224 had been rejected
for defective eyesight, n percentage
of 21. G8."
Gradually the general public Is
realizing the importance of caring
for tho teeth In order to preserve
good health, hut tho eyes, tho most
important part of our physical equip-
nient, art often neglected until the
nctiral fear of hlindncss drives the
sufferer Into tho taking the necessary
means for preserving them.

ETERNAL LIFE j
"I mil come Hint ye might have lifo anil have It more abundantly."
John 10: 10.
Tho only reason for tho first ndvent of Jesus Christ was tho
destitution of life to the human race. Life had been forfeited by
Adam's disobedience. . Because Adnm sinned mortality wai fastened
upon nil tho sons and daughters of Adam.
Because Adam sinned ho became mortal. Adam never lmtl eternal
life. No man can transmit to posterity what ho himself docs not possess
Hence all the human race was dcstltuto of eternal life when Christ mado
Ills first advent.
If man had possessed eternal lifo why should Christ cnino that
he might havo lifo? Can man havo a more abundant life than eternal
life? If ho possessed eternal life what reason for Christ to come?
It seems that John, wisely thought Hint all tho beads of the field
will bo brought to lifo ugalu at the resurrection. I do not eudorso Wes
ley's view, but I do say that If Christ had not come neither man nor beast
would ever live again lifter tho stroke of death lias caused our life and
existence, to cease.
"The Son of man Is comoMo acck out and to save Unit which was
lost." Matt. 18: 11 and Luke 19:10.- What was lost? Tho whole hu
man race was lost. If Christ had not come to help the human race ic-
cover what Adam lost man would bo
Death would bo an eternal dreamless
therefrom made thru tho atonement
Bccauso Jesus is now Immortal He has power to bestow life to
whomsoever Ho wills. "Ho came to Ills own nnd Ills own rccolvcd Him
not; but as many as did receivo HIni to them gave Ho power to become
the sons of God." The sons of God will live forever, because ChVist came
to give them life.
If man was Immortal by nature, or If God endowed him, with an
immortal soul he had Just as much life without Cluist ns ho could pos
sibly have with Christ; therefore Christ would be unnecessary. No
scheme of" redemption could save an Immortal man nor could any plan
of salvation add one moment of life to any human being who already
had eternal life. But because of man's mortality und man's destitution
of life and his lose condition in death
Now, since He camo and
thru the gospel, It is necessary for man to comply with requirements of
the gospel. Tho requirements say "Holievo," "repent," "be baptized,
and "continuo faithful unto death." i
By faithful contlnuanqo in
obtain eternal life at the final Judgment. No man has eternal life now
No man can obtain oternal lifo except by patient continuance lit well
doing. No wicked person can ever obtain eternal life.
Therefore "man that is in
the beasts that perish." Ps. 49:20.
