Where Is the Garden of Eden?
Forty miles west of old Bagdad,
) in the vast level valley of the his
' toric Euphrates, near Hit of the
Hittites, lies the traditional Garden
of Eden. Such is the interesting
conclusion of Sir William Wilcocks,
the famous Egyptian engineer and
Bible student, and many other au
thorities agree with him.
! "Out of Eden came a river which
watered a garden, and from thence
j it was parted and became four riv
ers." And these four rivers, known
j in Bible days as the Pison, Gihon,
l Hiddekel and Euphrates the an
Icient "River of Babylon" - have
i been identified by Sir William.
It was while studying, surveying
and mapping Chaldea previous to
starting work on the giant irrigation
scheme planned for Mesopotamia,
that Wilcocks became convinced
that the real Ginuni of Eden lay in
the region descu!ai.

revival service when a man stood
ud in the aisle and shouted these
words at him in a voice that was
harsh with excitement. The preach
er paused in his discourse. The
audience sat breathless and trans
fixed. Every glance was turned
upon the man in the aisle. His
head was bent forward. The mus
cles of his face were set. The beam
of his eye rested steadily upon the
face of the minister. After a mo
ment that waa tense almost to pain
!'t!lners, he repoat.'ci his statement
am' cmp1'!!-d it.
"I am j'-in! out of ti c sit.-.e'5 pis

You have been talking about some
One who could save people from
their sins. You said it made no
difference how wicked a man had
been if he repented; that his sins
would be blotted out. You said he
would know he was forgiven and
the sense of condemnation and guilt
would be gone. Now, if you are
saying what you do not know to be
true, you ought to be ashamed. If
you are holding out to a man like
me a hope when there is no hope,
you ought to stop it"
At this point, without appearing
to cease speaking, the man's voice
seemed to die out or him and he
stood silent, but with the intensity
of his pose unrelieved and his hun
gry eyes searching the face of the
preacher. The sincerity of the man
obviously entitled him to every con-
Ijsideration. There was tragedy in
the lines of his face and in the tones

"I want to know, sir, whether you
believe that this religion you are
preaching can save a man like me.
You said that Jesus saved a thief
on the cross. Do you believe that
Jesus can save a thief now?" The
man's chin quivered and his eyes
swam as again ' the voice died out
of him. The entire audience was
moved by the force of his appeal.
Dr. Goodell confesses that he felt it
to his heels, but he felt also bis faith
rise within him at the challenge.
He reached across the chancel rail
and took the appealing, out-stretched
hand in his, saying, in a voice for
all to hear:
"My brother, I have honestly de
clared a message in which I believe
I cannot afford to preach a gospel
that is not true, and I will not I
am ready to make this contract with
you. If yau will meet the .condi
tions which ere laid down in the
Bible, by which a man may come
to God, and you do not find salva
tion, I will never again gq. into this
pulpit to preach!"
Something line a sigh swept the
audience us they realized the signi
ficance of the issues thus joined. As
for the two men, they knelt togeth
er at the altar. There was an earn
est exposition of the way of life by
the doctor with the open Bible be

As the congregation passed out
and left the doctor alone, and final
ly the man who had challenged his
Gospel so strangely was also gone,
Dr. Goodell began to feel a sinking
at the heart. He realized that he
had risked all the future of his min
istry upon the chance issue of af
fairs in the soul of a highly emotion
al creature who had stayed bis
meeting. Yet he reasoned with
himself that he had done right and
only what an honest prescher could

began here and now. If this man

then either there was no such thing

day was a restless one for him.
Some of !iis parishioners thought
he had been too rash and came to
tell him so, but he withstood their
urgings. Night came, and the hour
for service. Dr. Goodell was at the
church, but did not enter the pulpit.
Instead he sat just inside the chan
cel rail with his eyes upon the door.
Would the man come? Would he
come a conqueror or a miserable
failure, confessing defeat? The time
to preach at length arrived, but the
man did not. Dr. Goodell announc
