Side Lights on Next Sunday's Lesson for Teachers and Pupils. Edited by Charlei K. Mejrera Jan.. 5—The Creation. Gen. 1, 1 to 2, 3. We are beginning this week a series of lessons from the Old Testament scriptures which will continue through the entire year. It will seem a great change from the study of the words of the blessed Jesus to the historical books at the beginning of the bible. We are not, however, getting away from the mighty truths which must have a shaping influence not only on our lives, but the thoughts and des tiny of the entire world. Let us all take up the present series of lessons with the determination to be blessed and benefited. As we arrive at consciousness of the material world the question comes to every one, "Why are things as I find them, and how did they come to be so?" At first we find so much to be learned, there is little time or in clination to do other than accept things as they are. Later there comes a time when the mind desires to in vestigate and reason out the facts as to nature's laws and weigh the proba bilities as to cause and effects. There is one book to which we can turn which is ready to explain the mighty facts as to the creation of the earth and the establishment of laws governing the growth of the animal and vegetable kingdoms as we see them about us on every side. Obser vation tells us that in the mechanical world nothing takes shape without the thought of some one in advance. Houses do not rise from the ground, engines move heavy loads, watches keep time without a maker, without forethought, without a master mind. We are now reading much about the wonderful work being done in com pleting the Panama canal and Col. Goethals is having unstinted words of praise given him. Great as the digging of the canal may appear, it is as nothing when compared with the mathematical, ex actness with which the earth and oth er planets revolve about the sun. that the laws of gravitation and attraction work with substantial uniformity cn bodies millions cf miles away and the pin which wo drop from our hand. Nothing man lias ever done seems hardly worth the mention when viewed beside the uplifting of the mountains, the depositing of the minerals, the Suits and Overcoats $27.50 now $20.00 $25.00 now $18.75 $22.50 now $17.25 $20.00 now $15.75 $18.50 now $14.25 $16.50 now $12.25 $15.00 now $10.75 $12.50 now $ 8.75 $10.00 now $ 7.25 shaping of the broad valleys. The late discovery of the composition of the air which will allow the trans mission of motion waves bearing in telligence as dictated by a human op erator, is but one of a host of exam ples that there are capabilities of nature little as yet comprehended by the mind of man. With these and similar thoughts in mind, one is ready to turn humbly and with uncovered head to the declara tions of the first chapter of Genesis and learn of the source of all these mighty and wonderful things. The master mind is that of the almighty God, and in the beginning He created the earth, its accompanying worlds, made laws for the seasons, brought into existence animal and vegetable life and provided for their continu ance by seed growth and reproduction. Let not the mind be befogged by speculations as to the length of time which it took to make the earth. There was order in creation, one act of bringing into being, following after another, as right conditions came to exist. Just the how and when con cerns us little when viewing the sure results before us. The bible account of creation was not written down as an eye observer commits to paper at this day what ap pears before him. Some one however was divinely guided to set forth in general terms the different stages of earth formation and there is every evidence that what was written is true. Let us then give careful atten tion to the words of Genesis viewing with becoming humble spirit the sim ple yet magnificent description of the creation of the earth, thankful that the God who did this loves us, cares for us, sent His son Jesus to die for us, that He promises to us eternal life, and a time when our human limi tations shall be removed and we can understand not only the mysteries of creation, but a host of other things which now seem beyond our capabil ities to comprehend. The great Apostle Paul says that now we see through a glass darkiy but some time we shall see face to face. You and I cannot understand how things which now are, were once not in ex istence. The busy ant lives in a world of its own which undoubtedly seems as real to it as the life we live. Our existence and influence on this world compares with that of the ant and it littie becomes us to deny the exist ence. of the mighty God and ridicule Ilis manner of creating the world as told in the book He has divinely pre served for our information, not only Boys' Suits & Overcoats $10.00 now $ 7.75 $ 8.50 now $ 6.50 $ 7.00 now $ 5.25 THE DENISON REVIEW, WEDNESDAY, JAN. 1, 1913. Washington, D. C., Dec. 27. William Cocoran Eustis, chairman of the Inaugural committee, is of dis tinguished lineage. He is a descend ant of the Custis family, to which be longed Martha Custis, the wife of the first president of the United States. He is also a grandson and heir of Mr. W. W. Corcoran, who presented Washington city a medical school and the beautiful Corcoran art gallery. Mrs. Eustis, his wife, who will occu py a position of great social promi nence during the inaugural ceremon ies, is a daughter of the late Levi P. Morton, vice-president of the United States during Harrison's administra tion. Active steps are being taken to ar range for an inaugural parade of wo man suffrage advocates from all over the country. Considerable interest has been man ifested in the testimony of J. Pierpont Morgan before the "money trust" in vestigation committee of the house of representatives. He declared that no such thing as a money trust is pos sible and that he did not believe all the banks in Christendom could cor ner the money market that credit is more powerful in business dealings than actual wealth or money. JANUARY CLEARANCE SALE On January 2 our January Clearance Sale will start. Our desire for a real clean up of all Fall and Winter Goods at this season of the year is measured by the* prices we are making. You can see how much we want to get all these Suits and Overcoats for Fall and Winter out of the way by looking at the prices we have named on the goods. Our Clothing don't need much price reduction to be an inducement to late buyers. It's a genuine Clearance Sale and we want you to share in the benefits. On account of the warm weather we have had we have a very good selection for you to pick from and as the cold weather hasn't started yet you will be wise to prepare for yourself and family at the beginning of winter. $ 4.50 $ 2.75 as to material but spiritual things.

We haven't room to quote you prices on everything but come in and let us show you the goods and the prices we are making on them. We must reduce now while the season is right to sell them to make room. The effect of the recent decision of the United State supreme court, an nulling the 65 per cent contracts of the railroads and anthracite coal com• panies, is more far reaching than was at first realized. This is seen from the set of questions, the most searching ever put to any railroad, asked by the interstate commerce commission, in an investigation just started, which is but one step of an inquiry concerning the rates, prac tices, rules and regulations of the rail roads for the transportation of hard coal. The fact that 90 per cent of our canals and domestic water traffic is owned or controlled by the railroads has come as a surprise to most of us. In the tariff hearings which will begin January Gth. an investigation will be made of t'ao necessity for changes in the duty upon wool, flax, cottcn. hemp, si'le. tobacco, wines, wocd and wood products, mrtals. su gar, chemicals, agricultural rrotlr-ns and provisions and m~ny miscellan eous articles. Dress and Flannel Shirts The Mexican situation, owing to the failure of President Madero to protect American citizens and prop erty, has become acute. President Taft has sent an ultimatum to Ma dero, which is regarded by some as only a few steps short of a declaration of war. After the first of January, there will be aio binding ties of com merce, navigation or immigration be tween this country and Russia. It will be remembered that President Taft abrogated, lasll spring, the treaty of 1832 with Russia, because of Russia's treatment of the Jews. As agitation is .dreaded in both coun tries the understanding here is that nothing will be done or said by either government to give ground for a pro test until a treaty defining the rela tions of the two countries can be agreed upon. In the usual course of diplomatic procedure, neither the Mexican nor Russian difficulties can be settled during the present admin istration. So, in addition to the do mestic questions of trusts and tariff, the qew administration will have to deal with the Mexican and Russian problems and also with the Panama tolls dispute. Indeed, Mr. Wilson's administra tion promises to be an eventful one. Mr. Carnegie says that he will have an opportunity to make for himself an immortal name by inaugurating the judicial settlement of our interna tional disputes, and, though himself a republican, Mr. Carnegie promises his earnest support, and that of all peace lovers, without regard to party affiliations.

Denison Review Pub. Co., Denison, Iowa. Gentlemen:—Enclosed herewith find check for the sum of $3.00 in payment of two years' subscription for "The Deni son Review." I wouldn't if I could and I couldn't if I woultf forget my many dear friends in good old Denison and Craw ford county, and in receiving the Review is much like getting a letter from home every week, telling you all about your friends and neighbors, to say nothing of the many other good things contained on its pages. I wish I had time and space to tell you of a few of the many good things I have heard said here in business circles about the splendid showing made by the Denison banks and the Hotel Denison. I often wonder if the farmers of Crawford county realize that it is always to them and their lands that reference is first made when speak ing of the showing made by the Denison banks and of the in creased market value of their lands these good bank showings afford them.
