The Industrial Index says the Rainbriige Northeastern Railroad Company has applied to the Georgia railroad com mission for authority to issue five per cent bonds, purposing to construct a railroad between Bainbridge and Apa-lachicola- Dr. A- E. Conter, of Chattahoochee, is shaking hands with his friends in Apalacbicola.: i '-yV. H. Pickett is circulating a peti tion among the citizens of Franklin county. The petition is to the board of county commissioners, asking that they purchase suitable site within the present fire Idtstrict of the city and erect thereon a new county court house ajid Jail. The Idea is to dis pose of the old court house,, which is far from being in the proper- loca tion, and If found feasible possibly use it for a business college and nor mal school. Some one hundred and fifty signers or more have been ob tained o far. The Apalaoliicola Times suggests that the city of Apalachicola give the site for the federal building proposed Why not? This would only add tl the amount to be use 1 for the build ing, and has been done numbers of times before by other progressive cities.

EMERSON GAVE LECTURE AT THE SAN CARLOS AUDITO RIUM YESTERDAY AFTERNOON J. F. Emerson, of Minneapolis, gave his lecture on "The Resurrection of the Dead, Why Necessary?" at the San Carlos auditorium, Sunday, to a very attentive audience. The speaker's personality, his man ner or delivery. His topic or some thing; won for him from start to finish the closest attention. In a pleasing. straightforward way he delivered a lecture full of comfort and good cheer. The speaker said: "The doctrine of the resurrection Is very prominently set forth In the Scriptures ,and per haps no other Bible doctrine Is fraught with so many delightful anticipations. The thought of .having our loved ones with-us again by a return from death is a most beautiful and wonderful thought. The Bible presentation of this subject Is surpassingly grand, and Is intended to magnify the name and character of our God, but the beauty and grandeur of this Bible doctrine is quite generally lost sight of, because of the theory that the dead are not dead, but at the moment of death be come more alive than ever. Accept ing this theory, Christian people have been obliged to substitute other theo ries, for the Scriptural hope of a res urrection. Resurrection of the Body. "Many cleaim that, the resurrection promises of the Bible all apply to the body, forgetting the Apostle's . vTy plsm statement on this point, that the body sown in "death- Is not the body which shall be In the resurrection. Believing the He of Satan told in Eden when he contradicted God, saying, 'God doth know thou wilt not surely die,. still others believe that the moment of death is the moment of resurrection, that death is simply a door by which we gain access to higher life and high er powers, forgetting again, that death is the penalty for sins, and is nowhere referred to as a door, but always de scribed as an enemy, while if It were simply a way of access to better con ditions, it could not be regarded as an enemy. The Bible doctrine of the resurrection of, the dead is based upon the very plain Bible teaching that the dead are dead. When once this fact is clearly seen, not only does the teach ing of the resurrection become lumin ous, but a flood of light is shed upon many other Bible subjects, and the Bible is seen to be beautiful and con sistent in all its teachings, and our admiration and reverence for the prec ious book increases roanyfold. If we hold the erroneous view that the dead are not dead, It makes our Bible full of inconsistencies which are often ex pressed in the well known phrase, 'The Bible is an old fiddle that you can play any tune upon. But in the light of the truth, that the dead are dead, the Bible becomes harmonious and consistent from. Genesis to Revelation, and only one tune, the old song of Moses and the Lamb, can be played upon it, and what we supposed was a 'tune' we now find to be discords, due to our not knowing how to play the grand old harp.' . The Dead Are Dead. "Let us notice how clearly the Bible sets forth the thought that the dead are dead. First we notice that death was the penalty pronounced in Eden. Next the Apostle (Rom. 6:23) says, The wages of sin Is death. We are further told that this death penalty in volved all through the law of heredity. The question is, 'What is the condition of those In death?" Are they alive and conscious? Are some enjoying them selves in bliss, and others suffering agonies untold, in torment? Let us go again to God's word with a desire to be taught and not 'to teach tle book. What say the Scriptures on this important subject? We are plain ly told that the dead know not any thing. The death condition is describ ed as the land of forgetfulness; that man Is turned to destruction; and yet again the death condition is described as a condition where the deadare not.' The Work of Jesus. '"The Book tells that the dead are perished except for the ransom and resurrection, work of our Lord Jesus. The dead are dead; they all go to the same place, all are of the dust and unto' dust they turn again. Hence the ne cessity of - a resurrection. A postal card request addressed to the Interna tional . Bible Students' Association, Brooklyn, NV T., will bring to any ad dress a free copy of a treatise on Hell. I have found this a valuable aid In my study of the Bible presentation of the condition of the dead. "Both the just and the unjust are entitled to a resurrection by virtue of Jesus' ransom sacrifice, and when the redemptive work of our Lord Is com pleted, the results will be that the saintly ones of this Gospel Age, the church, the bride of Christ will be raised spirit beings, for they must all be changed. Flesh and -blood cannot Inherit the Kingdom ef heaven. The ethers, not of the spirit begotten class will have a restitution back to what Adam lost earthly life, earthly bles sings and an earthly home. Thus the whole family of God in heaven and in earth will consist of Jesus and His bride, and all the angels in heaven, and a restored race of human beings on the earth, every man sitting under his own vine and fig tree; the wilfully wicked, the incorrigible, destroyed in the second death and thus God's love and wisdom . will be demonstrated to all His creatures. $50,000 to lend in amounts ranging from $500 up.
