MlTCHELLlSltlS BOMB-SHELLS IN NUT-SHELLS
From "JOB, OR THE WORLD'S ASH HEAP."
Dr. C. C. Mitchell's Lecture.
(Ia Two HeW)
ACT r. OBNE X.
' AVo study Job us n man, not n drcnm,
not n nightmare of gomo Mnrlo Corolli
or niontnl concoction of sonio Shnko'
styeic, but n real flesh, bone and muscle
ninii, in whoe brnln, heart, and on
whoso farm was wrought out In the
main the facts which form tlio founda
tion for this, tlio iri'iiti'st drama of all
history.
In .lob's day they did not create char
acters, as we do corporations, out of
wind and moonshine.
We aro to study a man whoso life was
uis and downs not a merry-go-round.
.lob was all right on both sides of
him, outsido nnd in.
You don't weigh men on liny-scales,
by their positions, their possessions, or
oven their professions.
If wo had lews creed and more char
ifcter the Angels wouldn't get the heart
acho so often.
The Insldo measurement Is n hard
thing to ascertain, in a man as well as
in a pumpkin. We haven 't any ray yet
that enn reveal it.
Job was not a deacon nor a dude, but
he was rated the best man of his time;
not a good fellow but a good man; may
it cloud up and rain a lot moro just
liko him.
Job was a man of leisure, ho wasn't
lazy, but ho had leisure, that is, he
could go nutomobiling or tubing and it
didn't come out of his Saturday's paj
either.
Job had time to live a life, tho most
of us aro only hustling for a living.
lie was a man of means, a largo fain
ily and a large bank account.
He didn't have a baby grand, but hf
had a grand lot of babies., no race sui
cide for him.
In short he had tho external and in
ternal conditions" necessary for human
jenee and human happiness, plenty
without an I peace within.
The Point to the drama is this; uf
babies, sheep, first mortages, and !
smile tliit neer comes otl't necessary fe
mul integrity T
Job was the J. 1). Rockefeller of hi
day. His life was at sunny as Kansas
It was such a man whom '(led ehosi
ns tho stigo upon which he permitted to
be played out tho tragedy of human
"life.
Job w is no poet, preacher, or Presi
dent, but a big healthy, wealthy, happy
honest, manly man or the street, a liusi
ness man; 1 am glad of the change. Am
getting tired studying life from the
nngle of poets, preachers anil presi
dents. Job had money but he didn't sell his
soul to get it. The unfortunate man
in business did not point his finger of
scorn at Job as the fellow who ha.1
"Stung" him.
Job had gold but he didn't sell gold
bricks or hot uir or watered stock. Il
was not a bull on tho market. He was
tl.o man who patented the square doil.
In tho opening scene we see n good
man, happy man, successful man, a man
who wcat about his dnilv task with a
pong on his lips, a beam of heaven!
light on his face.
But it is a dissolving picture, for tho
Mnile of face and serenity of soul fade
lit into the night-mare and the tragedy
of life, "lie is up igninst it."
ACT I. SCKNTK TT.
The story begins after Job has mad1
his gold pile. This is not the prodigal
on his return trip, with his belly full
of husks and feet full of blisters, but a
limn with a big bank account anil a fvil
lieh deep soul.
Tho plot of the first act is to relieve
Job of his gold pile. Tho purpose Is to
show that ho is good only beennso ho
has n gold pile. Job had a special pull
with tho boss of tho universe.
In Job's day tho eye of suspicion was
upon tho man with tho boilsi today it is
upon tho fellow with the bullion.
Satan banters (lotlf Satan? Why yes,
can you explain tho tragedy of life and
leave him, tho big villinn in tho plnv
out!
Sin is moro than n disease or a mi
crobe in a can of corned beof.
Hell got its start In a material para
dise. A lot of peoplo aro coming out of the J

5 "I want to tell you what wonderful benefit 1 have re- JJ
2 celved from the use of Thedford's Black-Draught," writes J5
J Mrs. Sylvanla Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky. J
J "It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds, Jff
Jff liver and stomach troubles. I firmly believe Black-Draught J
J saved my little girl's life. When she had the measles, JJJ
J they went in on her, but one good dose of Thedford's W
J Black-Draught .made them break out, and she has had no JJJ
J more trouble, I shall never be without Jj
BLAck-DraugHT
in my home." For constipation, indigestion, headache, dizzi
ness, malaria, chills and fever, biliousness, and ail similar
ailments, Thedford's Black-Draught has proved Itself a safe,
reliable, gentle and valuable remedy.
If you suffer from any of these complaints, try Black
Draught It fe a medicine of known merit Seventy-five
years of splendid success proves its value. Good for
young and old. For sak everywhere. Price 25 cents.
short end of tho horn, Only tho mil
lionaire and contortionist enn make ends
meet. But moro pie In tho dinner pail
or lnilllonnrles trading salaries with
you and me won't kill sin.
Tho trouble In the world today Is
not In tho social system but in the
liumnn system.
You will never have things right on
tho outsido until you get man right on
tho Inside.
Many apostles of righteousness to
day aro killing wood peckers thlnkine
thoy will stoji the rot nt tho heart of
the troo.
Satan chuckles as he hisses In the
face of tho Infinite: "Does .lob serve
(Jod for naught f"
The insinuation in this is: that saints
spend most of their time thinking of
pay day in paradise, that tho social 400
get up tho charity ball not for sweet
charity's Bako( but for tho pleasure of
reading a description of their clothes
in tho society column of tho newspaper.
No matter what Satan know about Job's
neighbors which justified him In taking
this shot nt Job, God knew thnt there
was at least one man in town who did
not run the things of tho spirit on a
commercial basis. So ho accepts the
challenge. Wo will see if thero is not
inoro in this man than there Is attach
ed to him, see if ho will not maiulain
Us Integrity of soul even though the
whole town goes up in smoke.
Stand or fall, win or loo, heaven or
hell wo will try it. "Take him Satan,
do unto him what-so-cver your satanic
mind innv devise, but do not touch his
person.'
Don't nsk mo what right God has to
enter into such a combination.
I do not know what lies deep in the
mystery box of tho eteiu.il worl, on
this thing, temptation,
But 1 can see that this world would
rever have known that it hail a iiimi

hells were born.
lie gue the lie to Satan's insinua
tions that all men nerve IU' simply for
what there is in it.
Vou don 't have to feed all men on
angel food to keep them good.
Tho belly is not tho God of all tin
race.
It takes the ash heap test to briiij:
that fact out, the panic not the picnic.
Job was a millionaire reduced to an
object of charity in two hours
What diil he do "o miidf Xo. He
fell to the ground and prayed, saying.
"Naked came 1 here, naked shall 1 go

ACT II. WEN N r.
First honors go to Job. S.itau
struck him a solar plexus blow ami all
that it did was to send him to a prayer
meeting.
Satau is defeated but not dismayed.
Ho says every man has his weak .spot,
his pride and will go down a mora)
wreck if you can only break down his1
temporary defence and hit him where ho
is weak.
I know whero my spot is, have you
got yours located!
Satan attends tho second convention
of tho Sons of God, the .angels. Not
the last time that ho has been numbered
among tho Saints. It takes a lot of
dew on tho grass to keep him hi.
He is there to give his report. But
not a word does he say about tho wreck
over at the Job farm. You have heard
of tho man who went fishing but didn't
get a bite, nothing to say.
Perhaps Satan does not count his
chickens until they nre hatched.
Satan is not after Job's sheep, oxen
or even babies. He is after Job hjs
heart, not only to break it but to poisor
it, fill it with tho virus of boll, blas
phemy and unbelief.
There was irony in tho voice of God
ns lie called for this report.
God took greater chances when Jlo
nmdo man than when Ho mnde moons.
If ever Ho stopped to listen to a mar
j ray I guess it was just about now. Tli
Itubicon was crossed.

Now comes tho meanest thing in his
tory, " '.Satan's old saw' skin for skin
nil that a man hath will ho gie ior his
own life."
"True I didn't measure- the man
aright, rinnncial ruin did not phase
him. Hut you just lay him on his back
a sick man go after him instead of the
things that belong to him and his in
tegrity of coul will vanish."
Self preservation is a natural instinct.
Wo fix our minds on living, the suicide
is insane. Most men prefer being a lie
coward to a dead hero. Death is not en
ticing. "Skin for skin men say, take
what I have but don't touch me."
ACT I T. SCENE II.
Job now is to tako Hell's second do
gree, the sweat box of the soul, tiatan
went forth and smoto this man with a
leprosy in its most torriflie form, where
tho sands of a mnn's life drop out a
grain nt a time.
Foolish to ask why? Why torture a
man as you would not a snake?
Wo know the history of poison cup
dagger, dungeon, and eross( but only .1
demon or a God could make this Ash
heap possible. And if you stand and
gaze upon ifc until tho handful of grey
matter jn your think box evolves tho au
swer why, you will simply go mad.
Rut man remember your sonso of jus
tico or fitness is not the plumb line that
fathoms tho deep mystery of being.
You cannot see tho fitness of an ash
heap, tho sorrow that ploughs deen tne
soul, tho exporienco which makes time,
an epitome of boll, but perhaps gome
one else in the great wido range of be
ing can.
Character is Ood's big job. Ho wv.
enly amusing Himself when lie nude
stnrs and built tho firo In tho heart ul
tho sun.
Ho wants men with knot, guarl m '
soul twist to them. Moral giants wifli
which to populate Ills eternities,
Tho end justifies tho means though
it grinds your little earth nfo with
its mud pies or presidential asiiir.it ion
into powder.
ACT If. SCIWK III.
Job's wife appears; brldo of Mi
youth, joy of his heart, niothor of his
children now dead; companion for lie
ter or for worsp, etc.
Sho looks him over Poor thing; who
knows which of tho two hearts allied
tho harder.
Mrs. Job could liavo stood the tcstluy
of tho Ash Heap for herself.
Mau knows nothing of the pain; a
toothache puts him out of coinmU.Vion
'But to bo compelled to stand there
helpless, hopeless, silent the firnt two
sho was compolled to do, the lntt' alas
sho was unable to do.
And In a paroxysm sho cries Post
thou still trust God, curse Him mau a'i
dlo."
A shudder goo through Job's frune
In the next moment, worlds, ye.m In
building, wont to mnnsli. Hoarta tol
excoped, were pulled nsundor.
Job and his wife woro then and there
diverted. - -v "
With a vblce-Mrangefo'librjinn'J
Ibu. woman are wo to rccolvo jjood at the
hand of God nnd not ill," etc.
In nil this did not Job sin by charg
ing Uod foolishly.
If ever the Almighty nindo n blunder
it was in His selecting Adam instend of
Job with which to start Eden.
I'lionoauE to act tit.
Don't think Job breathed forever tho
pure air of the mount of his own tran'
figuration.
Ho got so cold in his soul lifo it al
most makes one sneeze to load about
him.
Whero Job differs from the majority
of men was in the fact that there wj
moro of him. Whoro somo men aro
built on tho plan of Rhode Inland he
was on the plan of Texas.
The accident of birth Is something I
don't know much about.
This tin spoon and silver spoon pr
osition has not been made plain 1 11 my
arithmetic.
Job was big. Hence when a man like
tills jumps tho thrack you nre going
to see a wreck. He was no hand car.
Despair is born of strength. A lol
ster never dies of nervous prostra
tion nor sweats its soul out over the
enigma called life.
Job is no religious dyspeptic but rath
or a giant with his heart frozen.
His wife; I don't want to think she
was spared simply to be the straw that
was to break tho camel's back; but
this she proved to bo and do.
Mrs. Job was good but not great. She
could stund an April shower but not a
cyclone.
Losses such as property and children
did not crush her anv moro thau they
did Job.
Up to date you haven't heard a won
'rom her. True she does not prais'e but
it is also true she does not complain,
Woman 's lot is to suffer in silence. In
this great drama which deals with the
highest and deepest in two oteruitio,
this woman gets si- lines which ileal
with her weakness; Joli the head of the
family gets a book.

WEAK KIDNEYS
MAKE WEAK BODIES
Kidney Diseases Causo Many Aches and
His of Maysvlllo People.
As one weak link weakens a chain,
so may weak kidneys weakeu the whole
body 'and h.isti'.i "the final breaking
down. Overwork, strains, colds aud other
causes injure tho kidneys, and general
ly when their activity is lessened th'5
whole body sutlers.
Aches and pains and languor and
urinary ills frequently come, a'ad there
is an ever increasing'tendency towards
dropsy. grael or fatal Bright 's dis
ease. When the kidneys fail there Is no
real help for the sullerer except kid
ney help.
Doan's Kidney Pills act directly 011
tho kidneys. Maysvillo testimony is
proof of their effectiveness.
Mrs. Aunie McClellan, 541 W. Second
St., Maysville, Ky., savs: "I was often
di'yy and nervous and my head ached.
I had pain in my back aud my kidneys
were weak. Doan's Kidney Pills stop
ped the complaint immediately ami
uiado we well and strong."
Mrs. McClcllau is only ono of mn'ay
Mnysvillo people who have gratefully
endorsed Doan's Kidney Pills. If your
back aches If your kidneys bother
you, don't simply ask for a kidney
remedy ask distinctly for Doan's Kid

had tho remedy backed by homo testi

"Thero are plenty ot idle men, ' said
a farmer, "but most of them are not
worth their board. ' Everybody knew
tho farmer spoke the truth, but if
business man were to sneer thus at the
honest Americnn workinginaii lie would
be boycotted by the people, tho press
and the pulpit.
WRONG BREAKFAST
Chango Gave Hugged Health.
Many ersons think tliat foi strength
they must begin the day with a break
fa.st of meat and other heavy loods.
This is a mistake as anyone can easily
discoor for himself.
A West Virginia carpenter's oxperi
ei ce may biMofit others, lie writes:
"I used to be a very heavy breakfast
eater but filially indigestion caused me
such distress I became afraid to eat
anything.
"My wife Miggested a trial of Grape
Nuts and as I had to eat something 0
starve, I concluded to tako hor advice
She fixed mo up a dish and T remarked
nt the time that the quality was a'l
light, but the quantity was too small
I wanted a saucerful.
"But sho said a small n mount of
Grape-Nuts went a long way and that I
mist eat it according to directii.is. So
I started in with Grape-Nuts and cream,
12 hoft boiled eggs and some crisp toast
foi breakfast.
"I cut out meats aud a lot of othe
stall 1 had been used to eating nil my
llfo and was gratified to seo that I wa
getting hotter right along. I conclu.l
ed I had struck tho right thing ami
stuck to it. 1 had not only been eating
iirproper food but too much,
"1 was work?ag at tho carpenter'?
