So soft and bland did be make the
sketch that some of his readers thought
they could recognize the original of

nothing fiery lu his diction; it sounded
like an after dinner discussion lu thtt
smoking room of an Atlantic liner,
when everybody goes to sleep.
But even Shaw didn't go so far as to
make Satan seductive.
Listen to the press dispatch describ
ing the presentment of Satan's per
souality as given by Iiev. Mr. Ililscher
at a Waterloo (la.) Chautauqua:
"He pictured him as a beautiful and
seductive personage, with subtle quali
ties which attract rather than repel.
Xo horns, hoofs or spiked tall is visi
ble in the picture."
Chicago clergymen were inclined to
hold the other night . that the Prince
of Darkness had been rather carica
tured by Dore and other artists who
have bandied -the theme. They were
inclined to hold further that to depict
him with a hideous outward form was
to resort to obsolete methods of con
veying a psychological conception.
They pointed to the fact that u spirit,
as such, had no form and that there
was no way it could be fitly rendered.
They Intimated further that If what
was beautiful also was good there
would have to be a lot of retouching
done In the world of humans. They
said that the accepted symbol is Justi
fied, however, by its jrreat antiquity
and that art must speak through sym
bols. . Nothing; But linnicinnt ion.
Bishop Samuel Fallows declared that
the spiked tail, the hoofs and the horns
are fiction, poetry. Imagination.
"We owe this conception of the devil
to the imagination of great ioets and
artists," he said. "For myself I doabt

Rev. James Frothingham was disin

said, however, that the Bible litenjly
read gave authority for the belief j of
the Iowa divine. j
"The Bible says In one place tliat

he explained. "Personally I can tliuk
