Ass't Editor Ono Vonr, Six Months, Thron Months Knlercd according to |k>iiUI regulations at Hie poel-ofKoo at tilg Htona llapasaoa ii iil-olaaa matter. As the Editor Sees It. Hits it occurred to you Hint thcro urn many people (nilny who sincerely bolieivo that the world in coming to nil end, find that the day i? near at hand:'' TKe present unsettled condi? tions throughout Ihn earth are lo lliom hut visible signs of the approaching dissolution. Hut regardless of their be liefs, and no matter what hnp poiis, the world keeps right on moving, und it will continue to tuovo until time conses lo bo. Many yenrs ago the members of n religious Beet woroconvinc? ed Hint the end of the world was at huinl. They even set the date when all will be wafted lo boa von, or to hell, or wherever clue they might go. There was much excitement, many wild eyes, und no little uneasiness, or apprehension. They dressed themselves in white, ascended high mountains or hills, raised their even to heaven, and awaited Ilia grand smash. They are still waiting?those who are left of them. And Ihe world slill moves. In the early days woman was BOUIOlllillg of a chattel ?a pus session of mankind, to be dis? posed of us bis fancy might lie croo. Among the rich und powerful she was un ornament, a play? thing. In the humbler walks of life she was n drudge, little better than a beast of burden. If any person bad told the kings und knights id" old that the time would come when wo? man would be man's equal in all things that person would have been considered a lunatic, or a liar, or both, und a danger? ous person to remain at large. 11 is day s would have been short Yet for centuries woman Iiuh been forging forward, lighting fnr und obtaining greater priv? ileges, until today she is it cog nixed as man's equu) in many countries ill the past doubting ones have made dire prophesies fnr such a day. The rise of wo. moil hood to them meant chaos, dibintrngation, dissolution, Hut woman still progresses, and ihe world still moves. If man doesn't like it he can lug behind. Some people profess lo be? lieve that the great war marked the beginning of the end nf time, und that Christ was to re? turn lo (Mirth in 1025 and rule for n thousand years. This be lief iH based upon mathematical Computations applied to certain passage* in the Hilde. It may be true, or it may hot, bill if your heart is clean you need have no fear of meeting Christ in 1025. If Christ were to sweep the rulers nf the earth into the Boas and seize the reins of govern? ment himself we would not be tile loosers thereby. Even with Christ us the Em? peror of the Earth the world continue lo move?at least fur a thousand years. And as the earth moves, so do we who inhabit it move witti it. A groat conference is to be held in Washington, Wise men of the oarlh will seek lo curtail armaments, eliminate war and make thu land one of peace, happiness and plenty. While they are tulking the world will be moving. It.may be moving toward better (lays, or it may be approaching hor? rors as yet even unheard of. Hut still it will move, steadi? ly, surei) , without pause or de? viation from its course. Ood made tint world for a purpose und when tbut purpose is accomplished the world will cease to he We aro hut little specks in this world thut moves?-less than a tiny grain of sand upon a mighty beach. (.treat is the world, greater is God, but inliuiluly small are we who doubt that the world will continue to move. 9I.BO ,7? .40 Trinkle Elected Democrats Carry State By 60,000 Majority.
