Tho defenders of the saloon and tho liquor t radio in general aie
equnlly hard pressed and are resorting to the same methods. For in.
stance, Mr. Geo. O. Drown of Louisville, Ky. , has recently revised a
booklet, which he got out so mo years ago, in which ho sights all the
passages that refer to wine or intoxicnting drinks in any form, and
shows or attempts to show that tho Dible is on the side of tho whiskey
manufacturer and the saloon keeper.
Mr. Drown, in a letter to a gentleman, who has been so kind as
to refer it to us, states that, "It is needless for me to say that I have
never believed and do not now believe that this business (meaning the
liquor business ) is wrong from either a moral or an economic point
of view, and I know that I can conscientiously say that if I thought
it to be so I would in no wiso remain connected with it." lie goes
on further to state that ho is confirmed in his view by tho sanction
which ho finds in tho Bible, which he Bets forth in the booklet.
Now people can be in tho wrong and be honest. Many people
honestly believed that slarery was right, and doubtless the author of
this book is conscientious, but ho is only another good example of
how badly mistaken good intentioned people can sometimes be, and
how fatal it is to hare n wrong conception of the Bible. Suppose
ouo should expect to find, between its lids, sanction for tho uto of the
mowing machine, the cotton gin, tho railroad, the telephone, tele
graph, wireless telegraph, the flying machine, tho telescope, modern
Are fighting apparatus, automobiles, and nil other modem conve
niences? No one would now claim tkat, sinco tho Bible does not explicitly
authorize theso inventions, they are bad, and ought not to bo used.
But just here it should not bo forgotten that the invenfor of the tel
escope was imprisoned by the Church, and the authors of these and
many other inventions, if their discoveries were mode as much as 35
or 40 years ago, were denounced from the pulpit.
It seems to us that the trouble comes from the misunderstanding
6f the Bible and tho misunderstanding of inspiration. Some, people
can yet bo found and even some preachers who do not believe in evo
lution and claim thnt tho Darwinian theory has been exploded. Of
course they aro in tho dark as to what is going on in the world and
in the dark as to the modern conception of the Bible. It is a work
of inspiration most surely, but at tho same time it is a product of evo
lution or growth. This does not mean at all that God changes or that
He changes His view of things, but it means simply that the world in
its childhood was not able to conceive of God as He is now and was
then, and that as it grew to manhood, its conception of Him broadened
nnd became more nearly the true conception. As we pass from the
early to tho later books of the Bible, the steps of moral progress are
as clearly written as are tho changes in life Torms as we advance from
tho earlier rocks to the later in our Geological studies.
The race in tin childhood interpreted God as best it was able
and deposited that interpretation in certain books; in its youth it
did likewise, and alio as it approached manhood. These books coU
lected into one are our Holy Hible.
It certainly does not follow, then, sinco there are accounts given
in the Bible of people being drunk and wines and iutoxicatiug drinks
being used, thnt tho manufacture, sale, or use of intoxicants should
bo permitted by us.
We are still interpreting God rending His thoughts after Him,
as Keplar put it, and shall we pot read better as the ruco grows older?
The Treasures of Youth
Sermon by President Frost, United Chapel, Sunday Night,
September 15, 1912. .
Our subject tonight Is tho Treas
ures of Youth, the preclousness of
young days. Tho text Is Eccleslastcs
11th chap., 9th and 10th verses: "Re-
Jolco, O yung man, in Uiy youth;
nnd let thy hcurt cheer thee In the
days of thy youth, nnd wall; In the
ways of ttilno heart, and In tho
sight of thine eyes: but know thou,
that for all thebo tilings God will
bring theo Into Judgment. Thereto
remove sorrow from thy heart, and
put away evil from thy flesh: for
yuth and tho dawn of life ore vani
ty." Dfd you ever make a Journey in u
boat down tho Kentucky River iass
Ing more or less 'swiftly tho succes
sive headlands of tho shore? Do
you remember your sensation li n
railway Journey going from station
to station? Now. such .a Journey. Is
a typo of our life, ono scene after
another, nnd never turning back.
This text of ours Is not In any way
a dlspralso of youth and young days,
but It Is an explanation. It winds up
with thoso mystic words, "youth and
tho dawn of llfo are vanity."
What It Vanity? "
Now what Is vanity? Vanity Is not
always something worthless, but van
ity is something that soon passes
away. And that Is tho case with all
the experiences of life. Shakesiearo
has mapped out human life In seven
ages. Visit tho reading room in How
ard Hall and you shall see how the
artist has followed tho drama and
pictured tho babe and tho school boy
and tho other five stages that make
up ono llfo.
Tho story Is told of an Eastern
despot who built a great hall which,
was to be tho sceno of audiences
and revelry, a plaeo whero they should
ncgotlato treaties and receive sup
pliants and pass sentences, a place
where learned and great men, cap
tives and soldiers, at different times,
would assemble. He asked his wise
men to glvo him a motto for the
walls of such a place which should
be appropriate to every occasion In
the llfo of man. They bowed and re
tired, deliberated and brought their
verdict, and tho motto they advised
as appropriate to every occasion In
tho life of man was theso words:
"This also shall pass away." No mat
ter how high the revelry, no matt-r
how gifted tho company, no matter
how glorious the occasion, this aluo
shall pass away. And thnt same
sentence must bo passed upon youth
and upon manhood and upon every
stago of Ufa's Journey. But tho con
gratulation at tho beginning of this
text is a very slncero one "Re
joice, O young man," for thou hast
causo for rejoicing. It explains that
youth, or young days, havo two val
ues. First Is their value for tho
beauty and tho Joy that they havo
In themsolvcs. The second, and more
lasting, is the value that they havo
as a seedtime, for harvests yet to
como. Sometimes wo forget this last
value. Wo aro so eager In enjoying
youth that wo do not Improvo it. Wo
need to bo reminded that It Is van
ity, that It Is transitory, that It 13
passing, that it docs not last for
ever, and that its chief value Is tho
seed sowing that shall mako harvests
for other days. "Rejoice, O young
man, In thy youth."
Let us enumerate a few of tho
treasures of youth.
Unspoiled Body.
First, Is the unspoiled body. Of
all tho material things that God has
raado thero Is probably nothing to
equal a human form. Wonderful, un
searchable In Its mysteries and sanc
tities. Its fulness, Its sanctuaries of
secret rooms, its functions, tho can
dle stick of the soul, Its eyes that
see, and ears that hear, and nerves
that feel, and pmsclcs that rcjoluo
In action. Why, anyone of you who
is twenty years of age, If you could
exchange your body, uncontamlnated
and unspoiled, with Andrew Carnegie,
or John D. Rockefeller, you could gt
a hundred million dollars to boot!
An unspoiled body, tho first herlt-
ago and tho least of the heritage of
An Unspoiled Repute.
Tho next Is an unspoiled repute.

of a man's soul Is his reputation, and

Tho other big gathering was on
