Rabbies belong lo a sect and
lo a nation who believe and
teach that Christ was an im
postor, who believe and teach
the stnrr of (he bribed soldier ,
that the disciple came by
night and stole the body of
Jesas while they slept, ''and
1 1ns saying is commonly re
ported among the Jews ontil
Ibis Jayn . Now what could be
more natural than for those
Jews who claim that Christ
was an impostor, than for them
to explain away the miracle of
turning water into wire, on
the theory that there were a
lot ol chopped raiding in those
waterpots, and all the Savior
did, was lo pour in the water
and draw oil the steep, thus
making it no miracle at al'.
Why ihie Jews wool! go 58

cbi is Mr. Johnson or Biggs
woo-ld to' get rid of fermented
wine. .Again, suppose for the
sake of Ibe argument that the
Rahbies are correct in regard
to that mode ol makinz wine
of raising what does it prove?
It simply proves what I nave
claimed all Ihe time, to wit:
that ibey knew no . way by
which they could keep the
juice of Ibe crape without ler
mentation. But this was not
the kind of wine which the
Savior referred to when ' be
said' Nn man puHeth new
wine into old bottles" It was
nil tha bind nf m that ha
referred to when h said, am
man after having drank old
winestraiehtway desire h new,
for the old is better." It was
not for drinking this kind ol
wine that the Jews called the
Savior a wineb-bber. . It was
not this kind of wine that
l.aiah meant when he said,
uAnd in this moantain shall
t be Lord of boats make onto all
people a feast, of fat things, a
feast of wine on the lees; ol
fat things lull of marrow, of
wine on thd lees well refined."
It was Dot this aundof wine
that was meant when the com
maud waa given "In the holy
place shalt thou cause the
strong wiue to be poured onto
ibe Lord lor a drink offering
Mr. Johnson referred to Mr
Biggs, who took the gr and
Out two kinds ol win wer
spoken of In the Bible. Now
I will admit that there are sev
eral kinds ol . wine spoken of
In the Bible, among which are
new wine, old wine, sweet wine,
sour wine, strong wine, mixed
wiue, red nine, etcC. And it
was a common co.tom 16 have
more than one kind ol wine at
fea8ts. "Every man at the be
ginning doth set forth: good
wine, and when men are. well
drunk then that which is worae;
but thou has kept the good
wine nntil now. John z: iv
This text shows two things.that
it was a universal custom to
have wine at feasts, and also
itiat it was 4 a custom to have
more than one kind ol wine.
I wonder if that worse kind
spoken of waa a production
of the devil? "
On Hie day of pentecost the
Jews accused the disciples ol
being drunk on new wine, so
hat the term new wine in
those days did not always
mean unlermented wine, bat
n their answer' the disciples
did not deny being in the hab
t of drinking wine, as they
no doubt would have done if
theypracticed total abstinence.
ut i bey merely said, "we are
not drunk as ye suppose seeing
t is bat the third hour of the
day." It was common then,
and is now, to make two and
someiime three kinds or grades
nf wine out of the same grapes;
thus, when the grapes are
mashed ihtt juice which runs
ff of its own accord, is kept to
ielf, as it conUlns more grape
tugar and less acid, it makes
the uest wine. Then the grapes
are pressed moderately and
'that juice will make a middling
good wine; Mien Ihey are sub
mit) edlo a very bard presure
and this last juice will make
an m erior wine, such as was
probably used towards ibe
close of the feast when men
vere well drunk. Red wine is
made of dark colored grapes
usually fermented partially oa
ibe busk: lunugn while wine
can be, and sometimes is made
of the first run of Ihe black
grapes. What Mr. Biggs' said
about the manner-of making
red and white wine is correct.
fhe same practice is still in
common U6e, but what he said
about their keeping the wine
in an unlermented state is un
true, and he can not prove ibe
assertion, trom ibe dole or
auy other reliable source nor
by experiment, other than by
the canning process. which is
modern invention. If wine
can be thus kept, why do not
some of ihe advocates of that
theory demonstrate thejacl by
experiment I have known a
few men who believed in art!
ficial perpetual motions, some
of whom have shown their
faith by spending considerable
labor and money in trying to
demonstrate the principle by
experiment. It those men realy
believe that wine can be kepi
without fermentation, why do
thev not show their faith ' by
their works and demonstrate
the fact by experiment? For
my part I would as much ex
pect to succeed in Cuakiug' a
perpetual motion, as I would
to keep the juice ot the grape
without fermenting lor a twelve
month, for to accomplish ibis
I would have to first devise
some plan by which to suspend
the operations of one of the
immutable laws of the God ol
nature, which-is as persistent
in its action as gravitation it
self. 1 think Mr.- Biggs said
that in olden times they took
Hie grapejuice aDdput.it tn
Dot Ilea made "of "skin and tied
a cord to it and sank it in wa
ter, and then when they want
ed to use some wine all they
had to do was to draw it out,
and ' take out ' what 'Wine
wanted, and then sik the re
mainder bick into the water,
and In this manner he said they
kept it sweet. MtBiggtJiad

preach oa the wine question
from a Bible stand point
What book in the Bible teach
es snch aji idea as thiat What
other reliable book that has
any character as a scientific
work, teaches that fermenta
tion can be prevented la that
ay? Mr. Johnson thinks that
I manifested amazing affiront
ery when I said all this stuff
about nnfermented wine is a
bobby and calculated to de
ceive those who have no expe
rience,dcc.rje thinks 'that man
er of argument which consists
in sweeping assertions unsup
ported always looks very sus
picious, (Please apply that re
msrk to Mr. Biggs.") '
Mr. J. says if I hid consulted
sojae bonks of reference, or
even some .man of learnings
(Mr. Biggs for ' Instance) I
might have been saved the
mortification of making such a
blunder, that I might have
found the fact that unlerment
ed wines were very inpeh ap
proved by the ancients. The
may have been, and o dorjbt
were used during the vintage
season, which lasted a few
weeks only, but they did not
have it all the year round as
they did fermented wine. We
read in the' Bible that the but
ler in bis dream pressed the
grapes into Pharaoh's cap, hat
that is no proof that it could be
kept any length of time. Be
sides hey were obliged to use
it sparingly as it was danger
ous to take It in large quanti
ties, on account of its laxative
qualities. They dare not use it in
sickness at all except perhaps,
in cases of constipation where
purgatives were needed. I sm
aware and have been for aever
al years that grape juice has
been canned op by eer tara par
ties in ibis State, and used by
some in the place of wine lor
sacramental purposes, but I de
fy Mr. Johnson or any other
man to produce a specimen of
pure, sound unlermented grape
juice within Ohio or anywhere
else that is ten months old, oth
er than that which has been
preserved by tie canning pro
cess, and as 'hat is a modern
invention, it proves nothing.
1 have no learning to boast
of, but perhaps I have given
thi8oTject more research than
Mr. Johnson is aware of. 1 did
not embark in the business
without first searching the
Scriptures and other authori
ties with a view to ascertain
whether it was in accordance
with God's wilL That point set
tled, I have never had any se
cret doublings on that subject.
Then in order to make the bus
iness a success, I hare taken
considerable paint to become
informed as to Ibe various pro
cesses of making wine. 1 have
endeavored to study the chem
istry of the sal ject, have ex
perimented tor -mote thaa
Jbxen years,, though compara
tively I am bat an amateur in
the business ot wine making. J
have' much to Team yet, but
i till I think' that I am too fir
advanced ia that scieaee to
lake lessons lo wine making ol
men who have progressed bo
farther than Mr-. Johnson or
Bigg, at leaat until they aho
as by actual experiment that
the kind of wine Ihey advocate
can be kept at leaat a fortnight
without changing in its charac
ter. "The proof of the podding
is in eating it." Why ia it that
the Devil's wine can be kept all
the year round, while God's
wine can not be kept at aHT
It is true that all fermeated
wirne was ' once nnfermented
wine. According to Mr. Biggs
all fermented wine meet have
been transformed and changed,
trom being a creature of. God,
to become a creitare ot the
Devil. 1 wish lo kaow Ft what
time, or at what stager of fer
menuuonjjaoea us winsreeasa
to be a creature of God and
when does it become a prodno
Uooi of the Devil? Is the trans
formation Instantaneous, er is
oritgradaal? When does God
cease to be the creator, and
when does the Devi become
the producer of the wine in
question? " - ; ' :!
The U. 8. Dispensatory, high
er medical ' authority ' than
whieh is not 'extant, Tsay,
"Wine is the fermented juice of
the grape.' It further says:
The juice of sweet grapes eon

yeast,' and a small portion of
extractive Unfc add, bitartrate
of potassa, tartrate of lime,
common salt, and sulphate of
potassa the whole dissolved or
suspended in a large qa'anfity
of water." It ' savs : "Grape
juice therefore embraces all the
ingredients essential to the pro
doetioti of the vinous ferment
ation, and requires only the In
fluence ot the atmosphere, and a
proper temperature to convert
it into wine.' Oenee the chem
ical proceac of fermentation, is
as much the operation of God's
immutable law, as Is the grow
ing of grapes, and the ferment
ed wine thus produced, is as
much Gode creator e,'aa is our
daily bread, Mr. B ggs to the
contrary notwithstanding. The
Dispensatory also save 'The

other constituents, as to be in a

it is, that pure fermented wine

this assertion has often been
made by some, yet experience

say that the' dinkiug of imita

think it may. It is also a mis
