Collier in the Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. The writer was at "Viking. Alberta, in latitude 53 de grees north, and observed the aurora half an hour before sunset on April 22. Its visibility was due to the fact that a cloud hung above the horizon, serving as a curtain or screen against which the aurora could be seen.

H-RALSTON rof C net i In TEXT-Bst there were false prophets als among trie people., even as there hall be false teachers among; you, who privily shall bring- In damnable heresies, even denying- the Iod that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruc tion. II Peter 3:1- The title of this sermon is taken from the Revised Version of the Holy Scriptures, and at first glance this j would seem to be less portentous 1 than the ezpres- i sion in the Au thorized Version, "damnable here sies." As ordinari ly underst ood, "damnation" or "cond emnation" suggests the eternal punish ment of the final ly impenitent, and j 1 i such a text as this the .meaning would be that those who presert such heresies will be subjects of tliis condemnation. What Is Heresy? Scrlpturally, one meaning is that it refers to sects or persons, and anoth er that it refers to discords or dis sensions. In Peter's time there were persons in the communities to which he wrote, who were giving out teach ings that were .not in accord with what he had taught. Notwithstanding that all that is not in accord with the accepted teaching of the church is not I "damnable" nor "destructive," it is ! a simple matter of fact that there have j been men, and it is sad to say worn- J en, too, who have been bringing in j "heresies of destruction." We re ; ceivo the suggestion in the text, "false teachers bringing in damnable here sies, even denying the Lord that bought them." The ordinary, result of such work has been the securing to these teachers many followers, and : bringing upon themselves the de struction which their heresies per force entails. Many Heresies of Today. Probably never in the history of Christian thought and teaching were there so many "destructive heresies" as today. These are not in accord among themselves, and the man who does not like the truth of God's Word and has rejected the people of God is greatly rerplexed to know what one of the ma.:y heresies he should adopt. The folio- ors of these heresies, as a natural result, contend with each oth er just r i bitterly as any one of them con; ends with the Gospel as ac cepted by the church through all of its history, everywhere, and by all (sem per, ubique. et ab omnibus). And never in the history of the church were Christians needing to be under guard as today, for these false teach ers are not always outside of the church. Peter says they are "among you." In some cases they have re pudiated the church formally, but in many cases they cling to the church, wear its livery and pose as its teach ers and leaders. A heresy of today may be one of two things. It may be by an adding to the Word of God, or by omission, or ignoring some of It. There is hardly a modem religious fad that does not connect itself in some way with the Bible. The Bible may not be the chief literary authority, but in this coun try the religionist must come to the people with a profession of love for the Bible. The country is run over by religionists who sell, or if need be, give away religious literature, and oftentimes this literature is professed ly based on the Bible. Paul avoided heresy and told the elders of the church at Ephesus that he had not failed to declare unto them the whole counsel of God. The most prominent of the modern teachers of the "de structive heresies" teach much that is in the Bible, but they leave out much which, if given out, would utterly change their teaching, and it is be cause of this that we speak of their teachings as heretical. Peter sums up the heresy in mind in these words, "denying the Lord that bought them." Here we have a safeguard when we come to define heresies of destruction. They are in one way or another denials of Jesus Christ, either of his person or of soma phase of his work. Person and Work of Jesus Christ. The great question of questions is, "What think ye of Christ whose Son is he?" We are confined to the work of Christ as the Son of God. Now, briefly, what is the truth about the person of Jesus Christ? As taught by the church from the beginning. It is that Jesus Christ is the very Son of God, born of the Virgin Mary, was historically a person in the days of Pontius Pilate, waa absolutely sinless in his thought, teaching and life, died as the only sufficient sacrifice for the sins of the world, rose again from the dead, ascended into heaven, where he now sits on the right hand of God, from whence he will come as judge and io be the m editorial king on earth, and ' after manifesting his kingship in that form, will yield that kingdom up to God, that God may be all in all. FACTS TO BE FACED But Two Courses Open to the United States. Tariff Law Must Be Revised to Pro tect American Industry, or Stcnd - ard of Living in This Country Be Lowered. No matter how far apart the regular Republicans and the Progressives may be on some national problems though the chasm seems to be narrowing as the days go by the great majority of them are of one opinion on the subject of the tariff, which it now seems as sured will once again be the vital is Bue In next year's campaign. , Secre tary of Commerce Redfield, who has more than once given evidence justifiy lng the belief that he is at heart a protectionist, recently invited advice from practical commercial men as to the most effective means of prevent ing the dumping of manufactured prod ucts into this country from Europe after the war. One of the first replies comes from George W. Perkins, chair man of the Progressive national com mittee, who first shows how utterly impractical is Mr. Redfield's sugges tion that American consular agents at different shipping points in Europe be instructed not to allow any goods to be shipped from Europe that are likely to be sold over here at such a low price as to affect our manufactur ers unfavorably, and then states force fully the obvious truth that it Is the Underwood tariff act alone which makes the "dumping" process pos sible. "How," asks Mr. Perkins, "could Eu rope be preparing to use us as a dump ing ground if our tariff were not such as to permit her to do it? And what right would we have to complain and try to investigate her costs of manu facture and all that sort of thing when we so recently deliberately changed our tariff in such a way as to- invite her to compete with our manufactur ers on terms more favorable than she enjoyed before? And when the tariff was changed the Wilson administra tion told our people that it was done for their advantage and to reduce the cost of their living." That is all there is to the question. If Americans find it advantageous to buy the products of European factories under the rates of duty prescribed by the Underwood act, Mr. Redfield can invent no method of keeping them out of this country. That can only be done by revising the tariff law, or by manufacturing so cheaply in the Unit ed States that our products can com pete in our own markets with those turned out by the labor of poverty stricken Europe, toiling for a pittance after the war. The Great American Policy. The president, Secretary Redfield and other Democrats high in author ity are giving consideration to the tariff, and what should be done to meet conditions that have come, and others that ar6 coming, as the result of the war. Established American in dustries, new industries in contempla tion, and the American scale of wages, are involved. American independence in the wide field of manufacture has not yet been achieved. American wages must be kept on a basis of American comfort and fair reward for labor performed. Here we have protection in its plain and logical form. We are to guard ourselves against competition which either has the start of us, or the ad vantage of us in the important partic ular of cost of production. The policy commends itself to all practical men. It lies at the base of all we have ac complished . in the line of manufac ture and of general commercial growth. 1 Must Be Strong on Tariff. "It is on the tariff that the Repub lican party will have to make the fight In 1916," remarked former Representa tive Ralph Cameron of Arizona, at Washington. "And on the tariff, the Republican party in the national con vention will nominate the man who best represents Republican principles as they apply to the tariff. We of the West are vitally interested in the tariff, because we have seen our- in dustries injured by competition with foreign nations, notwithstanding the European war. If the war had not come, we would have been swamped and would have known not which way to lay our head. The war has saved temporarily some of our industries. McKlnley's Death Heavy Loss. The death of President McKlnley was a great loss in every way, but In no way more pronounced than in that of tariff revision. Had be lived we should have seen the tariff re vised -on downward lines; and suc cessfully revised, because the work would have been performed under the frank contention of the beneficence of protection as a national policy. Protection Always in Mind. It is by no means a new thing for Democrats in authority to recognize the value of protection and assist in applying 1L They have done so be; fore. In fact, whenever the respon sibility has devolved on them . they have always done so. Elections have been won on fierce and sounding tirades against protection and lofty glorifications of free trade, but the stun p promises made were never re deemed. Protection, in some meas ure, would always be served. iNItDiWIONaL SmtMCflflOL Lesson (By E. O. SELLERS, Actirrg-Director ol ouuud ikuwi - vunrse, . Tno . Bible Institute. Chicago.) LESSON. FOR. NOVEMBER 7 JOASH REPAIRS THE. TEMPLE. LESSON TEXT II Kings-12:4-15. GOLDEN TEXT-God loveth r,h.rU giver. IX Corj 9:7. The time of: this lesson was about 878 B. C, and it .follows within a few years last Sunday's lesson. Inaugu rated as king. and. instructed by a faithful priest., yet Joash discovered great lethargy on the part of the priestly class with regard to the house of God. He see himself to arouse great liberality and. to repair the templet ' I. .Lethargy, v. 4, 8. (1) Its cause. we should read in this connection II Chron. 24. From the two accounts and the' previous history of the na tion, we. conclude that the condition of the- temple was due, (a) to the weak and frequently vicious characters- of the rulers of the nation; (b) to the evil companions of both princes and. priests and. (c), to the cupidity ot court and ttiirata. (2) The result of this lethargy regarding God's cause waa evidenced (a) upon the temple. and (b) upon the Uvea of the people of the kingdom. (3) The cure. Joash instituted great reforms in Judah and in these Jehoiada the priest (v. 2) had no. small part. In this particular les son, the prince (v. 7) seems to lead the. priest. Unfortunately the godly priest did not long survive the crown ing of Joash and hence when he came under other influences he soon went back to the evil practices of his prede cessors and his reign ended in an eclipse of evil (II Chron. 24:15-26). In thi3 lesson we have, however, a suggestion of what is needed to cure religious lethargy, (a) A vision of the real condition of affairs (v. 7; also II Chron. 24:7). Joash saw the resultant ruin of the temple after 15 years of misrule; he also saw the misconduct of the priests and did not hesitate to call them to account. 'Tis no easy task to un dertake a reformation and restoration such as this; witness Moses, Luther, Wesley and Cary. These priests had aided him to gain his throne and doubtless had had a part in his boy hood training. Joash had- inaugu rated certain reforms before he be gan this task which suggests the sec ond need of (b) persistence (see I Chron. 24:5, 6). Such work also de mands (c) systematic effort and giv ing. Joash placed himself among Is rael's best kings by undertaking the restoration of the temple and won a place alongside of Hezekiah and Jo siah. Modern churches are not, strict ly speaking, "a house of the Lord'' such as the Jewish temple, yet the condition of many of our churches would indicate great indifference to the cause of the kingdom. Our bod ies are indeed a "temple" I Cor. 3: 16; 6:19) and both the body and church buildings alike should be kept in proper condition. II. Liberality, vs. 9-15. The plan to have the priests gather funds for the repairs was Scriptural. (Exod. 25: 2-8) God does not look upon the measure but upon the motive of our gifts (II Cor. 8:12). The priests did not "hasten the matter" so the king took it into his own hands (v. 9) In this remissness Jehoiada, as the chief priest, is held accountable for all (v. 7). We have in this story a rich sug gestion as to God's plan of Christian giving. (1) The object- It was dis tinctly for the glory of God and not to outbid others or to wastefully usa the money for selfish purposes. (2) All were to participate voluntarily, out of their abundance (II Chron. 24:10), systematically and faithfully. (3) The results were a house repaired (H Chron. 24:12). beautiful (II Chron. 24:13) with the worship restored (II Chron. 24:14). Joash seems to have laid great emphasis upon the "taber nacle of witness'' (24:6) and we need to recall that each and every part of that temple was a testimony to the truth of God and had in it a spiritual suggestion and prophecy- As a whole, it suggested that God dwelt in the midst of his people. - The sons of Athaliah (Joash's grandmother) had so conducted themselves as to cause it to need repairing (II Chron. 24:7). When we turn to II Chron. 24:8-14 arid read the record of the restoration of the temple, we discover: (1) Each had its part in the work. (2) Each did a "perfect" work, e. g, did his task faithfully, fully and to a finish. (3) Each did an orderly work, "in his state." None sought to supplant or defraud other, in the work assigned. (4) Each did a strong work, it was "strengthened" and not a trifling work as men-pleasers or for the moment Try more prayer and like Joash, give the people a chance and there will be no lack. Again, note that they dealt "faith fully." We need to exercise faithful ness in our relations to God and In the use of that which ne intrusts to our stewardship. -- Man and God alike will nave con fidence in us according to the method whereby we receive and expend money. . These funds were expended in a businesslike way (v. 11, 12. II Chron 24:11), and this doubtless added much to the size of the sift. REIIT FOR ISLAKD Third Trial of Suit Ends in Dis agreement, of Jury. at , Leavenworth. NOT WORTH THE COURT COSTS One Witness: Described the Island aa Being Under Water Most of the Year. The time of the Leavenworth dis trict court this week was nearly all taken up with the trial of , the suit of Charles Wandmaker against William R. Atkinson for possession of the land on Kickapoo island north of Fort jlja wunuuxu. xiik Jul .y was uuauxo to agree. This is the second mistrial of the case within the last two years and the court expenses are becoming heavy. Qne witness said that he would not give $100 for. all the land on the island, which is under water most of the year, and he did not know what the six lawyers,, three on each . side, are fighting for.. Kickapoo island was known in, tle early days as "Cow Island." It was. given the name by the Indians short ly after Fort Leavenworth, was. found ed, when some settler took up. a home on the island and left it because of high water, leaving his cows behind. Isaac Atkinson, lamer ol w miam R. Atkinson, defendant in the case. got a patent for the land from the government in 1850 and. finally suc ceeded in driving the Kickapoo In dians from it. The island was used as an advance skirmish ground be tween the Kansas Free Soilers and the Missouri border ruffians in terri torial and Civil war days. , Isaac Atkinson held undisputed pos session of it for a quarter of a cen tury until his death In 1882, when it was left to his two sons, William; R. and Thomas Atkinson. Wandmak er claims a title to the island throusi purchase from the heirs of Thomas Atkinson. He paid $2,300 for it in trade, he said. William R. Atkinson, the defendant, who holds the island, alleges that it was abandoned after a flood in 1898 and that he squatted on it and is now the owner because lie has held it for fifteen years. In the suit the whole question hinges on the time William R. Atkin son "squatted" on the island. Nearly every man and woman in Kickapoo township has been on the -witness stand on one side or the other and the testimony has been conflicting. It is probable that a third trial of the case will take place at the January term of the court. Autoist "Captures Eagle. While driving an automobile southwest of Leoti Rawley J. Malchow, a garage owner, saw a fine specimen of brown eagle sitting on a fence post. Mal chow speeded up his car to between fifty and sixty miles an hour to see how close he could get to the bird. The eagle flew across the road just as- the car came abreast and the big bird crashed through the windshield, striking Malchow in the breast. Aft er a hard fight Malchow tied the ertgle. getting several deep cuts on his legs from the bird's taloons. The eagle measures seven feet from tip to tip and is a magnificent specimen. -K Ottawa Has New Daily. Ottawa's new evening daily, the Ottawa Even ing Journal, published its first issue recently. The Journal Is published, by Glenn C. Wilson of Waterloo, la., and F. W. Hemenway, former editor and owner of the Junction City Sentinel. A. E. Johnson, formerly of the Atchi son Champion, is city editor. The new paper is Democratic. May Open Land November 1. The Dodge City land- office received more than one hundred letters the day after it was announced that Pres ident Wilson had abolished the nation al forest reserve of 138,000 acres in Western Kansas. Since then the number of inquiries has increased every day. But the land office as yet knows no more about th,e details of opening. The opening will not be be fore November 1, as much of the land is leased until that date to the cattle men for grazing purposes. ' Funeral of Warden's Wife. Funeral services for Mrs. Jennie Morgan, wife of Thomas W. Morgan, warden of the federal prison at Leavenworth, were held at the old family home in Ottawa. Several hundred persons attended. A delegation of prison officials was in the funeral party. -f Begin New Lawrence Bridge. Work on Douglas county's new $200, 000 bridge across the Kaw river at Lawrence was begun recently. The bridge is to cross the river just above the Bowersock dam. . Died on Train. Daniel L. Thomas of Emporia died recently on a Santa Fe train near Gallup, N. M., of heart disease.
