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.
