COMMON SENSE WILL KILL
FALSE BELIEFS AND CULTS
LONG BEACH. April 11.—[Editor
Herald]: My townsman. Dr. Bissell,
in a recent letter mentions throe ways
of interpreting Biblical meanings. I
suggest a fourth, whirh, used, will
clear many a mystery and which ad
dresses itKolf to human reason with
more force than either of thoso he
quotes. I mean the rommon sense
way or method. The only danger to
Dr. Bissell in using it would be that
mentioned in "Hudibras. 1 When a
certain gun "aimed at duck or plover
recoiled and kicked the owner over."
The common .-ruse way Is the only
one that is sale. It never fails to
bring forth the truth, whether that of
an author's intention or of the orig
inal truth itself. Purk/s sententious
remark. "What fools these mortals
be" never was more fully verified
than in the way men follow like sheep
after a bellwether, the lead ol some
strong, ambitious, "masterful" (as
Barrie calls them) man or woman.
who has started a "cult," an "ism, a
"belief." a new way of looking at
things. Why. the whole history oj
our poor, thoughtless race is spotted
■with these deluding myths, with noth
ing in them or under them but auda
cious assertion and thoughtless cre
dulity, some of them big enough and
creedy enough to swallow a world,
some with a short life and feeble fol
lowing. Every one of them is built
upon ignorance and unbelief. That they
are losing their grip upon mankind is
true (Their best bower holds yet in
■woman kind, and will for long.) One
fact will upset an army of faiths. A
few centuries ago we had no facts
Or rather the small modicum of real
truth that was within human reach
was all gathered into priestly hands
nnd kept safely away from the people.
It was a dangerous thing to let the
crowd know anything. But a won
derful and most momentous change
lias come over the world of men.
"Wherever the footsteps of knowledge
are planted there the shackles of
"faith" fall. Emancipation of mind
is the legend written all over the sky
of modern time.
And yet, like children, we hate to
give up our much loved .toys. We love
pageantry and show, tho fanfare of
organ pipes and the measured tread
of processions. Today we meet in
solemn crowds to Ueep the anniversary
of an event that is as purely fable.l
as is the tale of AM Baba or Hip Van
"Winkle, a tradition that is honored
by time, but is simply made grotesque
in our keeping it by its association
with rabbits and boiled eggs.

DENIES CAPITALIZATION OF
SOCIALISM WILL MAKE EVIL
ORANGE, April 9.—[Editor Herald]:
Your editorial entitled "Socialism
Capitalized" contains news that is
rather startling, if true. 1 refer 10
the statement that Robert Hunter has
devoted his fortune to the cause of
which he is so good an advocate. 1
cannot agree in your idea that we, as
Socialists, must 'find in what you call
•'the capitalization of Socialism" much
reason for g]ooiny reflection. Why
should we? <>!' the many ways In
which the cause of Socialism can be
advanced the most promising would
seem to be a co-operative effort
financed by men who not only believe
in it. but are ready to show their faith
by their works.
If Mr. Hunter has really taken such
an advanced position we rejoice with
him in his opportunity to do so much
Rood for his own country and for hu
manity throughout the world. Not
knowing; the extent of the fortune
owned hy the man whom you say "has
capitalized his section of the Socialist
party," we cannot form an estimate ofj
What may be done with it: but at least
we congratulate him on his decision to
use it in the attempt to abolish pov
erty, rather than to scatter is in char
ity, which, whil' 1 sometimes necessary
as a present relief, yet perpetuates the
evil conditions which call it forth.
You point out the fact that most So
cialists have to eat capitalistic bread
nnd that they are just as willing as
others to take the reward of the serv
ice they render. Of course they must
do that or starve. But it is one thing
to do one's duty t .> a master and yfit
look forward to a hotter situation, and
a different thing to be a willing; slave
with no hope of escape. Socialists must
make the best <>f present opportunities.
even while planning their freedom.
There is much more to say, but 1 have
reached the limit of space. L. W.
WOULD INTERPRET BIBLE BY
SCIENCE OF CORRESPONDENCE
LOS ANGELES, April 11.—[Editor
Herald]: Shelton Bissell rejects the
allegorical Interpretation of the Bible
and recommend* the hlstorlc-scientlfle,
which latter. I take it. means that we
are asked to believe in the historical
literal narrative, subjecting it to scien
tific test.
Can it be proved as a scientific fact
Jiy that, method that the Israelites
inarched dry shod through the Red sew
with the waters piled up as solid walls
on either side (Ex. 14:22) or that the
walls of Jericho were blown flat by the
sound of trumpets" (Jos. 6).
Take something of the gospels. How
can 5000 people be fed by a few loaves
and fishes. 1 These things are physical
impossibilities, nevertheless they are
true when spiritually perceived and un
derstood according I" the laws of spir
itual correspondence with natural laws,
Our friend Channlng Severance would
call them lies, and so would l If 1 had
no spiritual means of undei i
them. The ancients practiced this
science of correspondence which was
lost, rediscovered and explained by
Kmanuel Swedenborg, who c I
may be obtained i ly library. Thua
both the Old ami .New Testament
written In two senses, that thi i ■
might be benefited by mere belief, while
the initiated might i>e urged on to
greater spirituality.
The Bible lives today not by menu- ol
Its literal meaning but by its Internal
and spiritual sense. The existence ol
the Jewish race today is evidence ■>( thi
■ power of that book. The life and powe]
of Christianity is its crowning glory.
If It were merel> a political history of
peoples it would nine been buried with
the tablets of Xineveh and Babylon and
be forgotten. i .. I".
ASSERTS POLICE ON RAIDS

LOS ANGEIJCS April 17.—[Editor
Herald]: in an evening pupr-i I read
about the raiding u| a disorderly house
by our city police. "When the police

SOCIETIES TRY TO PREVENT
TRAFFIC IN WHITE SLAVES
1-OS ANGELES, April 16.—[Editor
Hcraldl: The suggestion of H. B. S.
that this city nerds a civic society toi
further the work of suppressing vice
is good. Would It not seem that the
scope of such a society should be along
the lines of the national vigilance com-|
mtttee which looks first of all to the
prevention of the nefarious white slave
traffic? The cities and the nations of
the world are alike aroused on thisi
subject. Every nation of Kurope ex- !
cept Turkey has such a society now at I
work. In the United States the na-|
tional vigilance committee has head-,
quarters at New York, with Dr. o. E.|
Janney aa chairman. The Illinois j
branch b.is its center in Chicago and;
the names of Mrs. Raymond RODblns,
Mrs. Charles Henrotln, Prof. Albion
\V. Small and Judge Julian W. Mack
are among its chief promoters.
The work of the committees is to In
vestigate and secure facts, to spread
reliable information with a view to
arousing public sentiment on this sub
ject, The abuses unearthed by the In
vestigations so far are enormous; |
there was no feature of the negro I
slavery, even the most revolting, but!
what is far outdone, both In cruelty!
and degradation, by this modern slav
ery.
At present better legislation is need
ed, hut with that and to make the laws
effective are needed volunteer citizens
formed into societies who, by compe
tent investigation and perpetual vigil
ance, will see that the laws are en
forced. A. H. D.
THINKS SABBATH IS DAY
FOR RECREATIVE WORSHIP
GARVANZA, April 15.—Tour corru
spondent's plea for greater freedom
and recreation on the Sabbath is well
founded, and When we realize, as we
surely shall sometime, that religion is
a matter of twenty-four hours a day
and that iubgtantial worship of God
is to be practiced every hour out of
the twenty-four, during the six days.
we shall find that Sunday will become
the day for recreative worship of God.
And as man is a threefold being, he
will find that his spiritual nature will
crave formal worship in prayer and
praise and teaching of spiritual truth.
That form of recreation should come
tirst in the day, and the latter part
can be devoted to the recreation of his
social and physical nature. He alone
can decide for himself what is the
most truly recreative (or him. I be
lieve that to be the highest use we
--i iii make of the Sabbath when the
substantial worship of God In the home
and in all our work and business has
been faithfully done during the six
days of the week.

GIVES HIS UNDERSTANDING
OF THEORY OF EVOLUTION
LOB ANGELES, April 16.—[Editor
Herald]: George w. Carey, in his let
ter Of April 12, says: "Evolution con
tends that life was evolved from some
thins but gives no hint of the origi:i
of that something or its character."
I do not sii understand the doctrine
of evolution as laid down by the great
Darwin or his followers, The word
"evolution" is derived from two words
in the Latin tongue—"ex," out, and
"vciivo," to roll. Webster accurately
translates it into English as "to open
] itself." Now, it is trtii- that life
! evolves or opens itself, but this it al
ways does in forms. Hence the evolu
tion of life is its manifestation in the
growth of living forms as traced
through all the generations descended
from the first which appeared on this
planet,
Life itself beifig; universal is there
fore without beginning and without
end, but the forms of life have begin
nings and endings. These opposite
points of limitations are not only seem
ing but true, as we see demonstrated
dally, Mr. Carey is correct when he
says: "Each phase of manifested life
is but a differentiation of universal
energy," but his inference that the in
dividualized life is immortal is incor
rect, for at death the life and con
sciousness of the Individual again
mingle with the universal from which
they were dlffi rentiated.
ABBURY CECIL.
TELLS HOW TO INVESTIGATE
CLAIMS OF SPIRITUALISTS
LOS ANGELES, April 16.—[Editor
Herald]: I want to thank you, Mr.
Editor, for publishing the exposures
of Spiritualism by Bishop Garrison.
You are doing a good work, even If
Jane J. June thinks otherwise. She]
says the scientific men constituting the 1
Psychical Research society, after years I
of investigation, were forced to admit
the genuineness of the Spiritualists'
claims, mid she mentions three names,
two of which belonged to the society.
One was Prof. Richard Hodgson, who
exposed more Spiritualist mediums,
including Mme. Blavatsky, than any
other half dozen men, and the second
name she mentioned was Prof. James
H. Hyslop, who states in • his work,
"Science and a Future Life," that
there are not yet enough severely crit
ical verifications to warrant any the
ory. Frank Podmore and F. W. H.
Myers, two of the most able and active
members of that society, render a ver
dict of not proved. (See Podmore's
"Modern Spiritualism" and "Studies In
Psychical Research," and Myers 1 "Hu
man Personality.")
Let me quote from the Spiritualist,
Camllle Flammarlon. In his book,
"Mysterious Psychic Forces," he says: |
"Prof, Charles Fiehet thinks that the
Spiritualistic hypothesis is far from
being demonstrated; that the observed
facts relate to an entirely different or
der of causes, as yet very difficult to
disentangle, and that in the present
state of our knowledge no final conclu
sion can be agreed on."
Dr. Maxwell concludes from his ob
servations that the greater part of the
phenomena, the reality of which can
not be doubted, are produced by a
force existing in us; that this force Is I
intelligent, and that the Intelligence
manifested crimes from the experimen
ters. This would be a kind of collec
tive consciousness. M. Marcel Mangln
does not adopt this "collective con
sciousness." and declares that it Is cer
tain that the being In the seances, who
asserts that he is- a manifestation is
"the subconsciousness of the Hum "
Frederick Myers says: "These super
normal phenomena arc due not to the
action of the spirits of deceased per
sons, as Wallace believes, but, for the
most part, to the action of an Incar
nate spirit, either that of the subject
himself or of some agent or other."
After devoting some 460 pages to an
examination of this reai ear* h, Flam
marion says: •■What I say is that the
physical phenomena studied in these
pages do not prove the existence of
spirits and may probably be explained
without them." Again he says: "One
may lay it down ci a principle that all
professional mediums cheat." Profes
sor Crooks concludes that "the differ
ence between the narti i-"'iis of psychic
force and tin ■■ of Spiritualism con
sists ill this: We maintain that it is
not yet proved; that there exists a di
recting acent other than th» Intel!!.

{fence of the medium, and that pres

dead are felt in the phenomena. While,
on the contrary, the Spiritualists ac
cept as an article of faith, without de
manding more proofs thereof, that
these spirits are the sole agents in the
production of the observed facts."
Id reward Carrington concludes: "We
have seen that the vast bulk of the
physical phenomena of Spiritualism are
certainly produced by fraudulent
means and devices, and that we are to
expect nothing genuine in the way of
either mental or physical phenomena.'
These men I have quoted spent from
a quarter to a half century in this

the very opposite of what Jane J. June
claims for this research. If you want
to know what frauds the Spiritualists
are and how they do it read "Behind

David P. Abbott: "The Spirit World

the Supernatural," by Frank Podmore.

IDEA OF SUPERNATURAL
EVIL BEING IS ASSUMED
POMONA, April 16.—[Editor Heraldl
[11 today's Issue "Llnemun," if we are
to take him seriously, write* ai II he
believed In the supernatural Satan and
devil which have such prominence in
certain religious circles. That there is a
devil no one Instructed In the truth of
the liitjle would question. That he is
■an Intelligent, unseen power," as me
ut your Letter Box contributors sug
gests is altogether without foundation.
" The word devil docs not occur in the
Old Testament. The plural form is
found In four places, In each case re
ferring to the idols to which the heathen
offered their sacrifices. The heart of
man Is always represented as the source
of evil. See Numbers 15:39, I Samuel
17.^8, Proverbs ;>:-'«!. Eccleilastes 8:11,
ami many other places, it "an Intelli
gent, unseen power" Inimical to human
welfare existed, is it not strange that
men were not warned to beware of him?
To deny the existence of such a power
seems, "ith some, as if i: were denying
a personal devil. Not by any means.
,|. i- paid to his disciples: "Have not
I chosen you twelve, and one of you is
, devil?" (John K:7o>. The personality
Of the devil in that case is evident, hut
there wad not hint; mysterious about
him. In Revelation 2:10 Jegus warned
the church ai Smyrna that the devil
would 'asl some of them Into prison.
This «as undoubtedly a multitudinous
devil, in the persons of political authorl
tie who persecuted the early Chris
tians even to death.
James says (7:11) "Resist the devil
and he will (100 from you." In arcord
a.ne.n with this admonition Paul was
always fighting, but his opponent was
his own body, which hp kept in subjec
tion (I Corinthians 9:2"). "Lineman"
says Satan told God whence he came.
True, but it was not from hell, which
is supposed to be his domain, but "from
going: to and fro in the earth." Who
was Satan in the case? We are not
informed, but hefore we can say he
was a supernatural evil being we must
prove the existence of such. The fact
is that idea is assumed, and Bible words
made to fit it without reason. As has
been shown before we know of nothing
worse than man's heart; nor can there
be. when we understand what conies
from it. See Matthew 15:19.

TRANSLATES WORDS AND
PHRASES IN SCRIPTURES
SAXTA MONICA! April 11.—[Editor
HeraldJ: In reply to the letter by "A
Sinner Saved by Grace" I wish to
| thank our friend for calling attention
to the Scripture concordance on the
several words hell, pit, devil, second
death, fire, brimstone, etc. I assure
all Herald readers that we find on ex
amination of the Scriptures on these
subjects that the word hell In the Old
Testament is translated from the He
brew word sheol, which occurs in all
sixty-rive times and in every instance
it refers to 1511, grave, state of the
dead—a state in which there is no
consciousness or pain or knowledge or
device of any kind. Please note fol
lowing texts: Amos 9:2, Psalms 139:8,
Psalms 16:10, 6:5. 49:14. 15,; 89:49, 115:
17, Kzekiel 32:27; Jonah 2:12, Genesis
37:35, 42:38; Job 14:13, 17:13; Ecclesi
astes 9:10.
In the Now Testament we find the
word hades translated hell and it is
synonymous with sheol in the Old Tes
tament. For proof texts see Acts 13:35.
In regard to the devil we find He
brews 2:14, Romans 16:29, etc., that he
is to bo destroyed, consequently when
we read in the symbolic book of Reve
lation that Satan and the beast and the
false prophet are to be cast into the
lake of fire and brimstone, which is
called the second death, we can bo sure
it is the same penalty everywhere In
the Scriptures pronounced against all
evildoers. See Romans 6:23, 5:12,
K/.ckiel 18:4. Genesis 2:17, Psalms 49:12
--16 Psalms 46:4, Psalms 6:5, Ezekiel
9:5-10. 3:19-20, 22-29: Job 14:21.
I would advise all Bible students
who are seeking for truth and a clear
understanding of the Bible and God's
plan >'( salvation with mankind to pro
cure a free copy of a magazine which
treats this subject thoroughly. Ad
dress Brooklyn Tabernacle. New York.

Are You Toothless?
It seems to be the aim of most dentists to overlook the wants of the
unfortunates who are compelled to wear plates (because if all your
teeth are out nothing else remains). Not so with me. I have an ex
pert in my office who does nothing else, apd has done nothing else in
dentistry for the last ten years; is an absolute Plate Specialist. He
can do more toward restoring your face to its original youthful ap
pearance than can a dozen beauty doctors. For the good of your
health, good looks and comfort, come and have a consultation and see
for yourself. As the first-class tailor builds your suit to correct the
defects of your form, JUST SO DOBS THIS DOCTOR build your plate
to restore your mouth to its proper shape. How often we see a 30
-year-old face with a 60-year-old mouth. Better look the best you can.
I do not make J5 plates, so if that is what you are looking for, don't
bother me—for just a trifle more I can make you a plate you will be
proud of and one that will be a lasting credit to my office.
TEETH WITHOUT PLATE
(Not possible if all, your teeth are out.)
If you have mißsirjg one tooth or more and do not care to wear a plate,
I can replace all lost ones by this method. They look natural, feel nat
ural and take the place of perfect natural teeth. This work Is a little
more expensive than plate work, but is within the reach of all and is
the classiest work in Dentistry. I have a dentist who does nothing
but attend to this department, and by this method he can give you a
perfect mouthful of teeth.
Let us look over your mouth and give you an estimate of the coßt
before you do business elsewhere.
A square deal Is our motto.
