Tha aacond war with Great Britian and tha Civil War might hart been averted had tha offending and offended partiea been abla to under, tand and to comprehend tha viewpoint of each other. "I had rather ba underatood than be loved" hat been expressed by more than on miaunderatood Individual. There are two dutiea devolving upon every citlien: tha responsi bility of trying to understand others, and the responsibility of trying to make himself understood. Motlvea are aometlmea one thing and viaibla results another, and good old American pride preventa many people from making motives and resulta coincide. A man of good Intentions la sometimes criticised because of Impressions. Ha tr.ust not alwaye be condemned by impressions, aa they belle bis real Intentions, but he la to be censured if he faila to do his beat to make hla itentiona convey correct impressions. Hearts bave been broken, enemies bava been made because of wrong Im pressions. In the heat of political discussions, men have been know to alienate personal friends, when the point at variance waa trivial and the real fundamental difference in the motivea of the two men equaled lero. The whole difficulty waa caused by misunderstanding and an unwillingnesa on the part of both partiea to concede the good intentions and the noble purposes of tha other fellow. , A newspaper ia sometimes erroniously credited with certain beliefs and opinlona to which it cannot and does not lay any claim. A newspaper ia an organ of public opinion and should represent the voice of the people. There never will be a time when all the people apeak aa one voice. There will be many dis cords, but the supreme effort at all timea should be made to un derstand others and to be understood ourselves. The Citizen sometime gives apace to opiniona and doctrines, over the signaturra of other people. In which it does not at all concur. That should always be the case, for if it ever reachea the time when only opinions that The Citizen can endorse "in toto are given apace in ita pages, it will become a hoplesa publication. The Citizen haa a platform upon which it stands without the slightest hesitation. It believes in clean advertisementa, in the truth, and publishes only that which Deflect the intelligence and good intention" of worthy citizen. It stand pledged to fight lawlessness aniLarirne, and believes in equal opportunities of all human being. JfHen we all endeavor t make ourselves under, stood in the matter of our beliefa and principles, there will be a more concerted effort on the part of all to right the wrongs that are running rampant thruout the land. EVOLUTION AND CREATION THE GOOD WORK CONTINUES Only a few week ago the Baptista of Berea closed one of tha most euc eeasful evangelistic meetings ever conducted In Berea. But no work for rlghteouaneea ia every completed. The Divine Plan of tha agea haa ar ranged it so that there la always important work left for good people to do. When it aeemed that every uncon verted person in Berea had been reached by tha Baptist revival, a re vival at the Methodist Church start ed with a promise of notable success. The revivalist. Rev. McClintnck, of Richmond, la a man with an unuaual rellgloua experience and haa one of the moat appealing testimonies ever given from the pulpit This revival ahould bring much good to the c'tizena of this commun ity, as the difference In the appeal and the personal experience from that of the Baptist evangelist mav result In the conversion of many people who were set to thinking by the revival at the Baptist Church. Let every Christian citizen in this community Join hands for tha pro motion of lHehteousnesa and good will among all of the people of this neighborhood. IIERE IS THE NAZARENE I've . a a a seen them wnen ine earcn ran red. Lay them down aerene . To die among the deathless dead In the name of the Nasarene. I've seen them march thro ehot and hell With aword and magazine Against the greedy host of hell In the name of the Nazarene. I've seen a woman 'mid the throng Wom and sad and lean, Drink and pane the cup along In the name of the Natarene. I've aeon them feed the stranger On burning aanda In lonely groves, Because One from a manger Gave thanks and brake tha loaves. I've seen them rush thru the opto door fp into me grea unseen Fr helpleaa babes of forgotten poor So loved by the Nasarene. I've seen them come to tha rescue By Ford and limousine Because of One who rode a colt, And is called the Nazarene. James M. Relnhardt THE HUSH-A-BY LAMMIE A Nursery Rhyme My hiuh-a-by lammle ia out in the rain, Hush-a-by lammie with paddies of snow. Waiting and bleating and calling in in vain For ita mamma to come from her shelter below. The cold wind whistles up under the eaves. The gray clouds hurry and scurry away. The raindrops cling to the quivering leaves. And the birda creep Into their homea in dismay. The sun sinks low in the threatening west. Tha flood sweeps down in the bed of the rill O sprite of the mountain, prepare ma a neat For my hush-a-by lammie high up on the hill. The lone wolf howla on the darkening height; Her lean cuba whine in their shelt ering cava 0 wjiat will become of my lammie tonight If the wild beasts prowl and the wild winds rave? My hush-a-by baby, don't worry, I pray. For tha snow-white lammie that'a out in the rain There's a star in the east with a won derful ray That .will drive off the storm ere the day comes again. And a Shepherd is there with a mer ciful hand Who sheltered the lambs In the pastures of old; He will care for the lost in this storm-beaten land. And your hush-a-by lamb will be safe In his fold.

This offer Is Intended for our farm, er friends, who are urged to take ad vantage of it at once, because we have only a certain number of sub scriptions which we can give free In this way. When they are used, this offer will be withdrawn. First come, first served. I hsve been Interested In the arti cles on evolution which have appear ed recently In The Citizen. It Is pleasing to note the courtesy of the writers and the absence of that un reasoning prejudice which was d -played a few days ago by aa Ohio man who was fined for not sending hla children to school. Refusing to pay the fine, he was sent to Jail. H gave as his excuse the fact that the achool teaches that' the earth Is round, while he believes it is flat. These writers seem to realize that it does not matter what they believe any more than it matters what I be lieve or what you believe. Some of the best men In the world believe In evolution. Others of the best men In the world 'believe that the Almighty power created the world and all that In it ia In aix days of twenty-four hours each. There ia not any real fault to be found with e ther But each of them ia too prone to find fault with the others. The man who believea that the world, as we know it is, the result of a process extend ing over millions of years is likely to think the man who believes it the re sult of six days work an ingnora mua. But why tell him so?' The man who believes that the world, as we see ft la, the result of six daya work ia likely to think the man who believea it the result of a million of years process an infidel. Possibly he is but an infidel to what? On matter of sober fact, both of them accept every Biblioal statement Somewhere In the early chapters of Genesis it ia declared, "From the dust of the earth created He him." Very well, the man who bel'eves in the spe cial creation theory holds that God took a handful of dirt and, by a defi nite art, made, man out of that dirt The man who believes in evolution holds that somehow from an unknow able thing, or from God, life came out of the dust of the earth, that it was bare life at first, that thru the agea it took on higher and ever higher forms, and that finally it culminated in the rat:onal being called man, but he accept, literally and without ques tion, "Of dust of the earth created He him." Now, what does It matter, essen tially, whether that creation was the result of an act or a process, com pleted in a moment or at the end of eons? With God, all of us agree, "one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is as one day.1 Why should we little crawling worm down here call each other mean names, as "hypocrite" snd 'ignora mus," because we have different ideas aa to how the Supreme Power d;d a thing that we never can understand anyhow? Beyond uiy aort of doubt men and women who believed that God created man out of a handful of clay, as a boy might make a clay horse, have inherited Mine eternal because thev lived right Maybe they were ignor ant It does not matter. Beyond any sort of doubt men ad women who believed that the Great First Cause evolved man out of the dust thru periods ao long that the finite mind cannot grasp them have Inherit ed blisa eternal because their I'ves were right Maybe they were unbe lievers in something that somebody else believed. It does' not matter. If there is a place of eternal punish ment it must be reserved for those intolerant nrople who say mean things shout those who do not be lieve as they do and try to bring misery upon them In this life. It Is Just as well thst all of us realize, once and for a'l, that we know nothing, that we cannot grasp any thought of real highnesa. that we cannot comprehend any absolute thing. Try to think of the universe as having "happened," of aomethlnr having come out of nothing. The brain reels and a mist comes. Trv to comprehend a power that created the universe, that power itself having no beginning, subsisted for ever and aye, again the bra'n reels and chaos comes. Look out into space and try to think of It going on and on, and ever on and on with never any termi nation. Tou cannot grasp it Trv, then, to think of something that put a period to space.

Tou stagger and cannot think. Try, then, the other way: Conceive, if you can, the aiding of all things annihilation, and all the space stretching away and away with never a thing in it the idea of in finite and absolute vacuity. You can not try as you may. There la no thought as to the cause of things or as to the destiny of things that you can follow to ita con. elusion. You are here you know not whence you came or how.

The Advertiaing Club of St Louis. I WHY DO MEN BELIEVE IN GOD? It is generally conceded by think ing, men and scholars that all, except a very few peoples, believe in a crea tor a supreme being. By some this belief is held to be instinctive or spontaneous, but all are agreed that auch a bel:ef ia general among men. This fact is very atriking, but the reasons that have operated and do operate to make this belief general are so obvious that ao far aa I know, nobody haa seen fit to set them down in their astonishing simplicity. To a man with only limited intel ligence, a- finished work indicatea tho worker. The quality and magnitude of the work indicate the quality and ability of the worker. It is not nec essary to have seen the worker. The worker can be comprehended more clearly thru observation of the finish ed work than in any other way. i The Universe is a work. By our standard it is a perfect work. The maker of a work is greater than the work. The maker of the Universe is the greatest th'ng that nam can im agine, j The Universe is a collection of , units. It is a collection of million of millions of nnits. It is an infinity of unit. These units are in action.' The action of these units is harmoni ous. This harmony is system. This system is the system of which all other aggregations of things sre parts. System can be achieved only by Intelligence. Therefore, the work er was inteligent v To each normal man the worker, thru system, has given a mind. In each of these minds there is a thing called "conscience." This conscience is developed in the mind as early as the power to do evil is developed in the body. This faculty of the mind might be called the inherent knowl edge of good and evil. To be guided by this faculty of the mind ia to progress in well doing. The worker who made the Universe gsve man this good faculty.. Therefore, tht worker is good. The worker haa made the Universe, the worker has achieved system, the worker has achieved goodness. The worker is powerful, the worker is wise, the worker ia good. Tha worker is God.

There are times when the loveliest armta on earth look auspiciously like an ace. There are two thlnga tbat alway attract a crowd : A dead man, and a live anake. A broken down man trying In vala to "come back" la aa sad a sight aa a broken down tombstone. A "Christian nation," young feller, la one In which a prize fighter makea more money than a preacher. It la alwaya said of the beat of them : "He I a good man, but " And he baa to die In order to get that word "but" cut off. When opportunity calls for a girl these daya. It has to wait until ahe gets all her false hair on, and often goe away without her.
