The International Bible Students'
Association, in convention assembled
at Washington, D. C., has tims me
morialized the International Arms
Congress assembled at Washington
at the present time:
As Christians earnestly striving io
follow Ibo teachings of Christ. Jesus
our Lord and Ills apostles, wo hold:
That war is a relic of barbarism,
destructive of good morals, and a re
proach to Christian peoples.
That Hie principles taught by the
Lord Jesus Christ preclude conse
crated Christians from engaging in
war, bloodshed or violence in any
That no nation cnn bo sahl to be
truly Christian which falls to adhere
io those principles taught hy tho
Lord and Mis apostles.
That tho ruling or governing fac
tors of the nations commonly called
'.Christendom" are now, and for
some time have been, io wit, finan
cial Trincos, otherwise termed con
trollers of commerce, statesmen or
political loaders, who formulate tho
laws, and clergymen and oilier ec
clesiastical teachers, the last Humed,

That the delegates and represen -
lalives of the ruling powers, now t?s

at Washington for tho purpose of
tho limitation of armaments, and in
so far ys possible for the establish
ment of conditions ol' peace ami pros
perity among tho people, have he
fore thom lt laudable objective.
'Itut we may be pardoned for hum
bly suggesting that the end desire I
cannot be attained by a partial or
even completo disarmament of the
nations. Reformation of men or na
tions will not result from the destruc
tion of arms, but. tho genuine refor
mation of men will lead automati
cally to the complete destruction of
all instruments of war and all forms
of violence. While war ls terrible
beyond description of human phrase,
yet it is not tho worst thing to bc
fea red.
Bolshevism, as a great menacing
monster, is knocking at tho door of
every nation, and tho destruction of
all law and order is threatened. To
prevent such terrible disaster and to
save the peoplo from indescribable
sulfuring is the tremendous problem
which, we submit, requires move
than human wisdom. Wc, therefor-',
suggest that the hooding ol' Divine
wisdom and tho adoption of tho Di
vine remedy as prescribed by (loo's
Holy Word i:-. vitally essential at this
i line.

powers must be subject either will

upon tho nations beginning in 191 1
is but tho expression of Cod's ven
geance against all unrighteous sys

The holy prophets of Jehovah in

Christ, the Messiah, may be estab

The length of time between each

regularly brushed down. Indoor dogs
call for a more frequent toilet than
outdoor ones; the former may be
washed once a month and the latter
every live ur six weeks. The Indoor
dog, too. should be groomed more
frequently than the outdoor ono.

Promotion of "Pure English."
In Kiiglnnd, as in the I'nited States,
the subject of preserving the purity of
tko Kngllsh language from the effects
of slang, loss of grammatical distinc
tions, etc., has recently attracted much
attention. One of thc results of thc
movement In England ls the formation
of the Society for Pure English. The
society was founded In lill.'?, but was
compelled by the war to postpone its
activities. The reason for the exist
ence of the society Is given us "tho
duty of English-speaking peoples to
make their language adequate and
efficient, and worthy of Its Increasing
and world-wide use. Its purpose ls
to further the best Interest of the
language by the promulgation of sound
knowledge." It ls asserted that the
Society for Pure English does not in
tend to dogmatizo but to open an In
formal democratic court in which all
questions may be nrgued on full in?

were confind to thc one structure.
The high power lines of the South

danger from falling poles and wires,
the current from the dam was cul !

about two hour:;. However, there'
was no loss from tho fire to tho poles |
