Sermon on the Grow In? Disregard
for the lllhle.
If the Bible is the inspired word
of God, and it is "by Him we live,
and move, and hnve our being,"
then every member of the human
race is under moral obligation to
regulate their lives in harmony
with His teachings.
If, however, it could be proven
that it is wholly the production of
priests and monks, in the days of
ignorance and superstition, then it
is time every member of the human
race should be so instructed.
Churches should be closed, and
preachers turn their attention from
gospel teaching to educating the
people up to the standard of modern
science, away from allegories, par
ables and miracles.
Because the finite mind cannot
fathom and explain the mystery
connected with the story of crea
tion and redemption, does not
change the fact, or oblige one to
prove them true.
Indeed, a fact does not require
proof; a fact is, and will always re
main a fact. God's word is spirit
ual, and "spiritual things are spirit
ually discerned; the mind must be
come spiritual in order to compre
hend mid believe it. "Because the
carnal mind is enmity against God;
for it is not subject to his law,
neither indeed can be." "To be
carnally minded is death; but to be
spiritually minded is life . and
peace." Spiritual truth should be
taught by the molders of public
sentiment; but since many things
are coming to us today from the
schools, press, and pulpit, calline
attention to "higher criticism,"
"new thought," "evolution," etc.,
displacing fuith with human reason,
openly denying the account of cre
ntion, the deluge, and many other
Bible statements, the natural result
would be, a lack of faith in, and
disregard for the word of God, and
a tide of infidelity sweeping over
the earth, as we see today.
Many are saying, "show us the
proof; give us a reason for these
Bible accounts and we will believe
And yet these same persons are
willing to accept facts in the natural
world which are occurring daily,
and for which no reason and proof
thereof can be given. To illustrate,
let the teachers prove to the pupil
by scientific reason or demonstra
tion that A is A. Ask the scientist
to give a reason why x the needle

LlghthliiR Express Collides WUh
Train Near Tucson.
Tucson (A. T.), January 28.
The negligence of a night operator
in handling delayed trains cost
thirty lives on the Southern Pacific
Inst night, twelve miles east of
Tucson. The Sunset limited,
west bound, running at the rnte of
sixty-five miles an hour, crashed
into the east-bound passenger,
known as No. 8, at 2:53 n. m.
Both engineers, one fireman, an
express messenger and sixteen pas
sengers, as far ns known, were
killed outright. A conservative
estimate of the dead, including sev
eral tramps, is placed at thirty.
At 6 o'clock tonight twenty bod
ies had been brought into Tucson,
and the charred remains of more
victims were still being found in
the wreckage. Both engines were
totally destroyed and ten coaches
were smashed to kindling wood
and the wreckage burned in the
fire which caught from the oil
burners on the engines. Thirty of
the injured were brought to Tuc
son on the relict train, which
reached here at 7 o'clock this morn
ing. The remaining injured, num
bering ten, were taken back to
Vails, four miles, where they were
given medical attention.

Arrest of Prominent Personnires for
Loudon, Jan. 27. A dispatch to
the Daily Mail from St. Petersburg
reports great unrest during the past
week in Teheran, the capital o'
Persia. Not a clay passes without
arrests of influential statesmen and
prominent personages. These nr
rests are attributed in St. Peters
burg to the influence of the British
Minister at Teheran, who inter
vened energetically in behalf of the
Libest religious sect, a growing
power, which, with a doctrine re
sembling Christianity, is trying to

proof; why the tide ebbs and flows
at regular intervals. Oh! they
will answer wisely, "It is caused by
the attraction of the moon." But
now it might be asked, can a rea
son be given for the attraction of
gravitation, and- the proof demon
strated. These are facts, and do
not require proof. . So "God's word
is truth," and does not require
proving. We accept and believe it
by faith, for "without faith it is
impossible to please Him." But,
if we receive not the love of the
truth," "strong delusions" will
come, and we slialPturii to fables,
and be given over to believe a lie.
Because, with the finite mind, we
arc unable to comprehend how u
human being could live in a fiery
furnace, or in a whale's stomach,
or so many animals could be sus
tained in the Ark for thirteen
months, is by no means evidence
that the Creator could not perform
these miracles. "Faith cometh by
hearing, and hearing by the word
of God." We must believe that
He is, or His word will be nothing
to us. But he says, "My word
shall abide forever." It was given
by inspiration of God, and "holy
men ot uod spake as they were
moved by the Holy Ghost." And
the Holy Ghost, or comforter,
Christ promised should "abide even
unto the end of the world," guid
ing men into all truth (which is
the Word). But the Word of God
presents to the follower of Christ a
"straight and narrow way" involv
ing crosses, and a restraining of
carnal desires, as well as a separa
tion from the world, which the vast
majority of humanity are unwilling
to do. Thus many are floundering
in the quagmires of human specu
lations, seeking for a way to heaven
broad enough to contain the whole
world; hence the vnst array of
"isms" and "ologies," and as a re
sult "many are being deceived."
These are only a few of the many
reasons why men are turning from
the Hible today, which also show
the need of repentance and conver
sion. C. 1-. LKLAND
interesting reading. We have in
Loudon an area (exclusive of the
City proper) of 638 square miles,
being a radius of fifteen miles from
Charing Cross. The London Cor
poration and its police have control
over the small area which includes
the district of St. Paul, and the
Bank of England. But for the
large area outside London has a
police force of 16,000 men, 60 per
cent of whom are employed on
night duty. The number of per
sons appehended in the year 1901
was over 119,000, or 1200 more
than in 1900.
The police cost London ,1,396,
000 for the year 1901, which is not
grudged when it is remembered that
felonies relating to property were
over 17,000 in 1901, or 1000 more
than in the previous year. And
yet, for all the mass of crime, Lon
don, or that part of it which the
visitor sees, is as reputable and as
crimeless and as safe as, tiny rural
village. The police find most of
their work in the overcrowded dis
tricts, where poverty and public
houses keep each other company.

Animal Instinct In Winter.
With many forms of life the read-j
incss for winter is not to secure a
place to protect them from cold or 1
even from freezing, but for security
against sudden changes of condi
tion and of temperature. It is a
protection in some case similar to!
that of the plants on the lawn that ,
were covered with straw by the
gardener when he made them ready j
for the winter. In some places of I
the kind for instance, in the squir-1
rel's nest there is undoubtedly
real animal warmth and cozlucss. 1
Fish seek the deepest part of pools,
where the temperature of the water
is n little above freezing and where
it remains very near this point
until spring. Nature and Science.
