"To walk as children of light means that

alt languages, the symbol of purity. It
touches and ministers to all things in Its

evil, showing all of Its loathsomeness and

and natural light: men feel freer to com

USE AND'ABUSE OF BIBLE
THEME OF DOCTOR BOYD.
Value of Book Not So Much in
Words, but in the Christ
The Reverend Doctor W. TV. Boyd, pastor
of the Second Baptist Church, took for his
theme yesterday morning "The Bible of To
Day." and for his text John xvll. 17. "Thy
Word is truth." He said:
"The Bible has been likened to a great
symphony played by some magnificent or
chestra, in which the same theme is taken
up by one Instrument after another and re
peated witn endless variation and ever
increasing beauty and power. This theme
is that God lovts men despite their sinful
ness and is working through the ages to
save them from the penalty and power of
their sins. The one idea running through
the whole of Scripture Is God's redemption
of mankind by His sen. Jesus Chrint.
"The Bible is not a book, but a collection
of books, written in different ages by dif
ferent authors, without conference with
each other or "a conscious common purpose.
And yet a common unity makes all these
separato books really one hook, because
the hand that writes them is a historical
unity. In its essence the Bible is a book of
history, the history of redemption.
"The value of the Bible is not in its words,
but in the Christ whose portrait Is contained
in the words. And he best ues the book
who knows how to look beneath Its words
and phrases and sees the living Christ
whoe Image "they enshrine..
"The ischool of Christ has one. textbook.
Every pupil must use tho Bible. All other
botk-s are weighed and tested by It. What
ever helps he uses; they must be In every
case means toward a clearer knowldege of
the Word of God.
"The Bible Is of Inestimable value, be
cause ,the truths revealed In it are the
chief means by which the Holy Sp'rlt works
in thejhearts and lives of men. The Bible
itself shows us that before men had a writ
ten revelation from God. He made private
revelations of Himself to Individual men.
And bv means of these private retelatlons
the Bible came to be. But now that all
tnese revelations arc gathered together in

. sharper tn.in nny two-edged sword, piercing

lirmed. by tlie exc tiling great and precious
Piomibes of the Word, we are made par

pras to his Father that he would "fanc
tit his followers bv the truth." and then
adds. "The Word is truth." This vita! and
vitalizing power of the written Word is
attested in our day bv tile Christian ex
perience of m llions of men and women.
To hate clear. Intelligent knowledge, then,
of what the Bible is and how to use It
properlv is the llrst of duties.
"What is the Bible? It 1st a divine-human
book The written Won! of God is a divine
human book, just as Jrsus Christ, the living
word of God. Is a divine-human person.
We must not. therefore, overlook the hu
man eltrotnt in the Scriptures any more
tban the humanity of Christ. Prom one
fiolnt of tlew tho Bible is like any other
iterarv production, and must be Inurprcted
accoid'ng to th laws of human thought

ent from all other books and must be used
with peculiar care and reverence. To treat
it only as literature 's to abuse it. It has
a truly human soul and body, but tho nni
matlng spirit is the eternal truth of God
"Looking at the Bible as a human book
and retiewlng Its history as a book, it is
not strange that dilliculttes are found in It,
which intidels exaggerate and assail.
Hut ono by one tnese dinicultles are dls-
appearing by means of Christian scholar-
ship, and the Bible never had as tirm a hold
upon tne ocst minds ns it has to-day. xne
writings of inhelds are varied and valuml-
nous. The destructive school of higher crit-
leism has increased doubt in certain clr-
cles. This doubt has been fostered by cer-
j tabi characteristics of our times, such as
love of independent thinking, a free press
j entering to all classes, an unrestricted lee-
i tun pl'iifnrm and a lax pulpit. But. not-
withstanding nil, he Bible is emerging from
i its lierv baptism of hostile criticism, not
Iess truly human, but more and more the
Power of God unto saltation.
rrhe proper Christian attitude toward
the Bible Is not to claim more for It thnn it
claims for itself. T!"e Bible was not given
to teach natural svlence. or even history, as
such. It s a gradual, progressive revela
tion of God to man and of the relations be
tween God and men for the religious needs
of man. Its claim is purely religious. Its
supreme! purpose it to impart the life of
God to ihe soul of man: that is. to make

nature- of the case It had to be there God
revealed himself and his will to man in the
only way possible, through human ees and
carp, intellect and hearts, tongues and pens.
This book is to be to us the touchstone of
truth, the authority In religion.
"Then, how should we use this book?
First of all. mako It our own by diligent
reading and meditation. It Is not an easy
t book. Plain places In it for our help, but
hard places for our exercise. Its best treas
ures lie deep down in the heart of it. like gold
in the soil. Zealous miners we are to be,
going Into the depths and bringing up the
pure. unallOed gold of truth.
"Coming to the written word, and realiz
ing the relation of tho personal Christ to
the whole of Scripture, we shall be saved
from two errors In Interpret ng the Bible;
a gros literalism on the one Hand, and a
fanciful use of symbolism on the other.

REAL RECREATION RESTS
. IN SPIRITUAL RENEWAL
Summer Season Suggests Thought
for the Reverend S. .C.
At the Church of the Divine Humanity
yesterday morning the Reverend S. C. Eby
preached on man's nectl of natural rest and
his capacity for spiritual renewal. His text
was Isaih 3.1. 3L "'But they that wait upon
the Lord shall renew their strength?" He
said, in part:
"The rational man who has earnest sense
of tbe meaning of life h.13 little use for
mere amusement or diversion on Its own
account. Entertainment as an end In itself
easily slides Into dissipation Its proper
place is as a means to man's- natural re
cuperation. Life's genuirc zest is. in useful
work, with its changeful pursuing and
achieving. But the resources of mind and
body are limited, and ceaseless work
me;ns exhaustion and premature decay.
Hence recreation is a rational and religious
duty. Its purpose is to enable the strained
faculties to unbend in spontaneous delight,
and to allow them afterwards to return
With vigor and Interest to the business of

or recreative pursuits are valid and helD-

Is borne in mind. Those diversions are

his inward conflicts and triumphs. Into
this inner life of the soul he Is not intro

The gosDCl never dreams that the world 1
will be friendly to the inward sovereignty i
of him whose kingdom was "not of this

flesh is weak. The force of heredity lnpels
to self-seeking. The pressure of environ
ment constrains to worldly satisfactions.
The mental suggestions of earth and hell
wither all native innocence and heavenly
freshness. All low-born things conspire to
make man contented vtlth being something
less than the authentic Image and likeness
of his creative Father in heaven. Where

Lord's spirit that any man overcomes In

Hacking the Project.
New York. June H. With the building of
a railroad from Denver to Salt Lake City, a
new transcontinental line will enter the
field now controlled by the Gould-IIarriman-Morgan-HIll
interests, and a lively clash
may be tho result. The builder will be D.

Bank of Denver, a man who has accumu
lated a fortune in gold mining. He has as
an ally Senator W. A. Clark, copper miner
and owner of the San Pedro. Los Angeles

Moffat road Is to be known as the Denver.
Northwestern and Pacific. It will run from
Denver west ai.d northwest to Salt Lake
City. At Denver it will connect with Senator
Clark's road, thus ennblishing a through
connection between Denver and the Pacific
At the present time the t'nlon Pacific. Ilia
Gould-Harriman road, comes from the west
into Denver from the north by the way of
Cheyenne. .. ottr what was originally
I:niwn as the Denver Pacific: and on the
south is the Denver and Bio Grande, which
runs north 1M m-les from Pueblo to Denver

v of the Moffat line with the enuallv
direct line of Senator Clark to the Pacific,
the new transcontinental connection will be
established, reducing the time of travel from
Denver to San Francisco by twenty-four
In view of this the opposition of the
Gould and Harriman factions and of all the
big railroad managers of the country is
natural, logical and easily explained. The
new road threatens confiiction not only with
the Gould-Harriman party, which controls
the I'nion Pacific. Southern Pacific. Missouri

also with the Morgan-Hill party, which
controls th- Northern routes, including the

hiving a line from the lakes to the Pacific

Governor Dockery' Comment.
Governor Docker- was asked to-day
whether he had anything to submit in ad
dition to the official statement of State Au
ditor Allen In reference to the reports of
the alleged "experts." which recently ap
pealed in the Globe-Democrat. The Gover
"I have never seen a more farcical per
formance than the antics of these Globe
Democrat "experts." No two of the five so
called "experts" agree in their findings. They
should "get together" and reconcile their
differences before they ask other people to
seriously, consider their statements. Their
exhibits are cut of balance, each .with the
other, by more than CO.CC-0.000, as was clear
ly and forcefully shown by The Republic
tn Its editorial of last Thursday.
"Some months ago this administration em
ployed a firm of experts of national reputa
tion for ability and integrity, and had a
searching investigation made of the State's
accounts for the past thirty-six years. It
required weeks of hard work for the four
experts to go through all the accounts cov
ering this long period. When the work had
been concluded. It was found that every
dollar cf the State funds had been honestly
accounted for during the entire period of
' Globe's Experts Muddled.
'The Globe-Democrat, which had been
making unwarranted assault upon the Dem
ocratic management of Missouri's financial
affairs, was Invited to inspect the books and
given the assurance that ever' assistance
would be afforded to enable it to ascertain
all the facts. The Republican organ, how
ever, refused -to accept the Invitation, but.
Instead, has secured tne services of a num
ber of individuals, who have fumihed that
paper confused and contradictor' accounts
of alleged discrepancies.
i "The new accusation, that 191S bonds had
been paid twice. Is In keplng with the other
sensational and Incorrect statements which
reckless partisan organs have been making
concerning the financial affaire of our
State. Because bonds ot a similar number,
but of an entirely different series, bearing
a different rate of Interest, and in no wise
connected with each other, have been paid,
one of these "experts" Jumps at the conclu
sion that these bonds, aggregating $1,918,000,
have been paid twica.
"Every allegation they have made con
cerning these alleged discrepancies Is
proven to be absolutely false by the search
ing Investigation and report of the corps
of national experts, made only a few
months since. Tfce State books balanced to
a cent. There had been no overpayment,
either of bonds or of Interest, on the public
debt: no Juggling of accounts, or any other
unworthy official act which would besmirch
the reputation or Impeach the honor of the
long line of Democratic State officials, both
living and dead."
