MRS. WOODROW WILSON.
Wife of the Democratic Presidential Nominee. Honorary President
of the Woman's National Democratic League.

Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, wife of the new leader of Democracy and proh
■ble next mistress of the White House, is perhaps the most Interesting wo
man in the United States today. This Is Inevitable—not because she wishes
It, for she does not—and Is as iirm as a rock in her conviction that being the
wife of a public man does not necessitate nor call for a woman's becoming a
publicity seeker. She successfully resisted all appeals of photographers and
Interviewers until Mr. Wilson's nomination as Democratic candidate for the
presidency was un fait accompli. This modesty is easily traced to her south
ern ancestry and training and Is characteristic, also of her distinguished
She was born Ellen Louise Axson, daughter of a Presbyterian divine of
Savannah, Ga., whose family, so far as he knows, is the only one of the name
Like Mr. Wilson, she has one brother and one sister living, all In the
■ame literary circle ns the doctor and herself.
In thin atmosphere of learning Mrs. Wilson could hardly be expected to
be other than she Is—widely read, broadmlnded and charitable, devoted to
her home mid the principles for which It stands.
She has marked ability aB an artist, and it is s.iid that n portrait painter
of ability was spoiled when she married the young barrister who had then
given up the practice of his profession to specialize on the subject that has
made him a presidential nominee.
Mrs. Wilson's three daughters—Misses Margaret Woodrow Wilson, Jes
eie Woodrow Wilson and Eleanor Randolph Wilson—possess the mental
characteristics of their father and their mother's artistic temperament, com
bined in such a way as to give zest to every moment of their lives and,pro
tection from the foibles of the world. They form. Indeed, an Ideal family
circle, one that It would be well for every American household to emulate.
MRS. THOMAS R. MARSHALL.
Wife of the Democratic Vice Presidential Nominee. Honorary Vlc«
President Woman's National Democratic League.
L. ■f ' S| .i. ...
Mrs. Thomas It, Marshall, wife of the vice presidential nominee of th«
Democratic party, Is a keen student of affairs anil as the constant compan
ion of her husband has had an exceptional opportunity of specializing on
human nature. A very practical and farreacbinj; result of this peculiar In
terest In the larger family of the state—she has no children of her own—ls
found in th<> long list of humanitarian bills passed U.v the Indiana legislature
during her husband's regime as governor. A bill to curtail child labor heads
the list, which numbers twenty, and includes almost every legal correction
for the Immediate relief of labor, especially for that pertaining to women
The Marshall borne, like that of the Wilsons', Is a home of books, and
yet one does not feel "bookish" within Its walls. On the contrary, one feels
very much at home there toe moment Mrs. Marshall appears upon the scene,
anil, If possible, more so when Mr. Marshall comes In.
They are such chums, this "tender hearted" governor and his wife, *nd
where one Is the other Is pretty sure to be found. They have traveled all
over the country together, and If the Woman's National Democratic league
has anything to do with It they will soon be going to Washington together.
Mrs. Marshall Is honorary vice president of the leacue and keenly Inter
ested In Its work, not because it Is part of the campaign, but because she
recognizes the permanency of the movement to educate women In the prin
ciples of democracy.

1 have long avoided presentation o
my understanding of our text and It
context, i take it up now by request
and because I believe It Is due time tc
be understood. I disclaim any specia.
inspiration. In some particulars my
views agree with those of other Bible
students, and in other respects they
disagree. Each bearer must use bis
own judgment, do his own Bible study,
and reach bis own conclusions.
Kindly remember that 1 am not re
sponsible for the figures of speech use,
by the Lord. My Interpretations do In
deed constitute a terrible arraignment
of Institutions which we have all rover,
enced and which embrace good people,
of good words and good works. God'e
saintly people in these various Institu
tions, being comparatively few, are
Ignored when systems as a whole an
dealt with In prophecy.
The Dragon, Beast, False Prophet.
Our context tells us that three Im
pure spirits iteacblngsi will go forth
from the mouths of the Dragon, the
Bcnst and the False Prophet, and these
three will be In accord, and symbolical,
ly the doctrines are represented by
"frogs." These three doctrines are to
have a mighty Influence throughout the
civilized earth. They are to gather
the kings and their nrmles to the great
Battle of Armageddon.
The ecclesiastical kings and princes,
and their retinues of clergy and faith
ful adherents, will be gathered in solid
phalanx—Protestant and Catholic. The
kings and captains of Industry, and as
tnaiiv as can be influenced by them,
will be gathered to the some side. The
political kings and princes, with all
their henchmen and retainers, will fol
low in line on the same side. The
financial kings and merchant princes,
and all whom they can Influence by the
most gigantic power ever yet exercis
ed In the world, will join the same
side, according to this prophecy.
These "doctrines of demons," repre
sented by the "frogs." will lead many
noble people in this great army to as
sume an attitude quite contrary to
their preference. For a time the
wheels of liberty and progress will be
turned backward and medieval re
straints will be considered necessary
for self-preservation—for the mainte
nance of the present order of things.
In giving this Interpretation, It is
necessary for us to indicate what Is
symbolized by the Dragon, the Beast,
and the False Prophet Bible students
of nearly all denominations agree with
iis thnt the "Dragon" of Revelation
represents the purely Civil Power.
Protestant Interpreters generally agree
that the "Beast like a leopard" (Reve
lation xlli. 2i represents the Papacy.
But fewer still, we fenr. will be ready
to support our view that Protestantism
is the "Image of the Beast" (Revelation
xIII. 15i in our context given another
name, "the liaise Prophet." We urge
no one to uccept our Interpretation
nor shall we think hard of any who
refuse It We will neither slander nor
otherwise Injure them now, nor threat
eD them with eternal torture. They
have the name right to their views that
I have, and the same right to make
them known to others. And I, for
one. will be very glad to consider any
thing which opponents may set forth
as their Interpretations of our text
"Unclean Spirits Like Frogs."
The symbolisms of Scripture, right
ly understood, are always forceful.
When the Holy Spirit used a "frog"
to symbolically represent certain
doctrines or teachings, we may be
Mire the true application will fit well.
A frog has a sage look, a wise look.
It swells itself up In an apparent en
doavor to impress the beholder. Its
great month well represents Its chief
power, used to croak.
Applying these symbols, we learn

that lint lit tm undent must be disturb

The Divine iiuthority of the Church.

from the Church, will not be allowed

scrlptural I'lnlnu will lie branded as

"frogs" RpMklng from pulpits and
platforms and through the religious
nrid secular press The nobler senti
ment* of some will be strangled by the
philosophy of the same evil spirit
which spoke through Calaphas. the
high priest, respecting Jesus. As Cala
phu» declared It expedient to commit
a crime lv violation of justice, human
and Divine, to be rid of Jesus and His
teachings, so this "frog" spirit will ap
prove of every violation of principle
necessary to their self-protection.
The OTimklng of these "frog" spirits oi
doctrines will gather the kings and
princes, financial, political, religious
and Industrial into one great army.
The spirit of fear. Inspired by the
croaking* of these "frogs." will scourge
the passions of otherwise good and
reasonable men to fury, desperation.
In their blind following of these evil
spirits, fvil dm-trlnes, they will be
ready to sacrifice life and everything
on the altar of what they mistakenly
suppose Is justice, truth and righteous
ness, under a Divine arrangement.
For a brier rime, as we understand
the Scriptures, these combined forces
of Armageddon will triumph. Free
speech, free mails, and other liberties
which bnve come to be the very breath
of the masses In our day, will be ruth
lessly shut off under the plea of neces
sity, the glory of God, the commands
of the Church, etc. All will seem to be
serene, until the great social explosion
In our context described as the "great
Earthquake" An "earthquake." In
symbolic language, signifies social
revolution, and the declaration of the
context is that none like unto It ever
before occurred. (Revelation xvl. 18.
19.) Jesus described It as a time of
trouble such as never was since there
was a nation.—Matthew xxlv. 21.
The Lord Will Gather Them.
The false, frog-like teachings will
gather together Into one host the great,
the rich, the wise, the learned and the
kings of the earth, to battle. At this
Juncture Divine Power will Btep for
ward, and our text tells us that BE
shall gather the marshaled hosts to
Armngeddon—to the Mountain of De
struction. The very thing which they
sought to avert by their union, federa
tion, etc., will be the very thing they
will hasten. Other Scriptures tell us
that God will be represented by the
Great Messiah, and that He will be on
the side of the masses. Thus we read
In Daniel xii. 1: "At that time shall
Michael [the Godlike One—Messiah]
stand up"—assume authority He will
take possession of His Kingdom in a
manner little looked for by many of
those who erroneously have been
claiming that they were His Kingdom,
and authorized by Him to reign in His
name And In Ills stead.
Jesu« declared, "His servants ye are
unto whom ye render service." Some
may be rendering service to Satan and
to error, who claim to be rendering
service to God and to righteousness;
and some of these may be serving ig
norautly, as did Saul of Tarsus, who
"verily thought that he did God a serv
ice" In persecuting the Church. The
same principle holds true reversely.
As nu earthly king does not bold him
self responsible for the moral character
of each soldier who fights in his bat
tles, so the Lord does not vouch for the
mornl character of all who will enlist
aud tight on His side of any question.
"His servants they are to whom they
render service," whatever the motive
or object prompting them.
The name principles will apply In the
coming Buttle of Armageddon. God's
Hide of that battle will be the people's
side, and the very nondescript host,
the people, will be pitted at the begin
ning of the battle. Anarchists, Social
ists, and hot-headed radicals of every
school of reason and unreason, will be
In the forefront of that battle. The
majority of the poor and the middle
class prefer peace at almost any price.
A comparatively small number. God's
consecrated people, will at heart be
longing for Messiah's Kingdom. These
will bide the Lord's time and wait pa
tiently for It: they will be of good
courage, knowing the outcome outlined
In the "more sure word of prophecy."
to which they have done well to take
heed, "as unto a light shining In a.

The Cloud's Silver Lining.
Horrible would be this outlook for
the future did we not have the Infalli
ble Word of God assuring us of a
glorious outcome! Divine Wisdom has
withheld until our day the great knowl
edge and skill which Is at the same
time breeding millionaires and discon
tents. Hnd God lifted the veil a thou
sand years sooner, the world would
have lined up for Its Armageddon a
thousand years sooner. 3ut that
would hnve been too soon for the Di
vine purpose, because Messiah's King
dom Is to be the great Thousand-
Year-Snbbnth of the world's history.
God In kindness veiled our eyes until
the time when the gathering to Ar
mageddon would immediately precede
Messiah's taking to Himself His great
power, and beginning His reign.—Reve
lation xl. 17. 18.
"Send Them Strong Delusions."
St I'aul wrote prophetically of our
time, that it would be one of serious
trial and testing to many professing to
be Christians. The reason for this ha
states—they received not the Truth In
the love of It (II Tbessalonians 11, 10,
11.) They preferred their own errone
ous theories, the Apostle explains, and
therefore God will give them over to a
"strong delusion." and let them believe
the lie which they preferred, and let
them suffer for missing the Truth
which they did not love. Thus they
will be In the condemned host. "fight-
Ing agnlnst God." because of their lack
of love fur the Truth.
It Is sad to say that we all as Chris
tians have been laboring under a thor
ough delusion respecting God's Plan.
We have claimed that Christ set up
His Church In Kingdom power, and
that the Church has been reigning on
the earth as His representative. On
the strength of this delusion, .lews and
heretics have been persecuted to death
as opponents to Christ's Kingdom. All
the while we thoughtlessly repeated
the Lord's prayer: "Thy Kingdom
come: Thy will be done on earth, as In
Heaven." We knew that the Redeemer
said that lie would come again to
make us Ills Bride and jotnt-beirs; but
we ignored the Scriptures We were
drunk, as the Scriptures symbolically
say. "all nations were drunk" with the
false doctrine. It is this false doctrine
that will constitute tlie "frog" spirit
which soon will begin to croak and to
prepare for Armageddon
The Bible presentation is that the
world Is h section of the universe in
rebellion against Divine authority, un
der the captaincy of Satan and nig as
sociated fallen angels. By Divine grace
Jesus has already "tasted death for
every man." and the merit of that sac
rifice must, eventually, grant Adam and
bis posterity a full, fair opportunity
for the attainment of everlasting life.
All who thus see the Divine program
and are walking in the light may know
something at least respecting the "times
and seasons" These brethren "are
not In darkness, that that day [and
that battle of Armageddon] should
overtake" them "as a thief" — un
Armageddon Not Yet but Soon.
For forty years the Armageddon
forces have been mustering for both
Bides of the conflict Strikes, lockouts
and Hots, grout und small, have been
merely Incidental skirmishes as the
belligerent parties crossed each other's
paths. Court and Army scandals In
Europe. Insurance. Trust and Court
scandals in America, have shaken pub
lic confidence. Dynamite plots, charg
ed by turns on employees and on em
ployers, have further shaken confi
dence and tended to make each dis
trustful of the other. Bitter and angry
feelings on both sides are more and
more manifest The lines of battle are
dally becoming more distinctly marked.
Nevertheless Armageddon cannot yet
be fought. Other matters Intervene,
according to prophecy.
Gentile times have still two years to
run I'he "Image of the Beast" of our
context must yet receive life— power.
The linage must be transformed from
a mere nieclmnlstn to a living force.

organization will still be futile unless
It receive vitalizatlon—unless its clergy
directly or indirectly shall be recog

but Armageddon cannot precede It, but
must follow perhaps a year after it,
according to our view of the Prophecy.
Still another thing intervenes: Al
