DR. DYER'S "HERESY"
"The Bible is inspired, but it is not infallible.
"The Bible is entirely religious and not scien
tific, being written before the days of science.
"The silence of Christian teachers concerning
the real nature of the Bible has been a stumbling
block to thousands.
"The Bible is a progressive revelation to a
growing human family.
"Modern criticism recognizes that the Bible is
a human book. Its 40 writers never had the
slightest thought that they were infallible.
"How do you believe the Bible? That is the
real question; not do you?"
A preacher of the gospel, the Rev. Frank
Dyer, said this and more from a Tacoma pulpit
Sunday!
If he had said the same thing 10 years, or even
five years ago he probably woufa have raised an
awful row in his congregation.
If he had said it 50 years ago he would have
been examined by the "higher ups" of his de
nomination and would have been out of a job.
If he had said it 100 years ago he would have
been branded a heretic and would have fled the
city to save his skin.
If he had said it 500 years ago, he might have
been burned at the stake, or tortured in the rack.
If he had said it 1000 years ago—well, that's
too far back for us to remember —but he prob
ably wouldn't have thought of saying it.
If he had said it 1900 yean ago, Christ probably
would have said:
"It is true, all that you say, but slow down a
bit; you are getting too far ahead of the people
of your day. They are superstitious, unscientific;
the truth of life must be shown them in simple
words, in parables, by progressive revelation."
Dr. Dyer's words welcome a new day in Chris
tian progress.
They came at the dawn of a great religions
awakening such as the world has rarely seen,
•when the dogmas and creeds —the masks which
have been shutting out the light—will be dis
carded, and the teachings of the Great Master will
appear in all their purity and power as a guide for
a people undivided by sects and denominations.

FLETCHER'S CRITICISM
John D. Fletcher, recently a candidate for superior court
Judge, makes some very pointed comments on the way we con
duct our elections in an article that appears on this page today.
Now that the heat of the campaign Is over and we can think
calmly on the subject, aren't we all a little bit Inclined to con
tract into very' narrow, partisan Individuals with the approach
of every election?
Isn't there a world of truth In Mr. Fletcher's observations.
What do you think of his suggested remedy?
You can't blame Poland for sinking a furtive tooth Into that

INEZ BOISSEVAIN
Many a tear will follow Mrs. Inez Mllholland-Boissevaln to
her grave throughout the nation.
Wealthy, she was not of the idle rich. Capable, she did
»ot capitalize her gifts for selfish gain.
While her fame is greatest as an advocate of woman suf
frage, thts young woman, called by death at the age of 30, gave
active help and heartfelt sympathy to the tollers of the world
—the girl toilers of her native city of New York especially. She
was their friend and counsellor.
She was one of Nature's noblewomen.

I THE SPEAKERSHIP
E. H. Oule, of Seattle, In his answer to Guy Kelly of Tor
eomt, clearly states the Issue In the speakership contest.
In his opinion, the rules <A the house should be liberalized
so tbat a handful of men shall no longer be able to control leg
islation arbitrarily. He further declares that, In view of tbe
measures to come up for the purpose of strengthening the dry
law, the house should elevate to the speakership a man who has
been consistently dry Instead of one who, like Kelly, has been
affiliated with tbe "wets."
He pleads. In general, for a liberalization of tbe republican
party Instead of pursuing the pig-headed standpatlsm whloh
Characterised the Kelly faction In the past sessions, and which
tended to bring both the party and tbe legislature tnto disrepute.
A liberal and a dry—tin t kind of man should be speaker, de
clares Oule. Kelly fails in both respects. Oule suggests Elmer
K. Halsey of Asotin county. Why not?

Ask her husband the same ques

There are a hundred snail

the first 12 months after the wed

band, or whether he would prefer
a life companion who would ac
cept him at his ordinary valuation
as an average human male.
Man s worst mistake in the first
year of marriage is that he rules
not wisely but too well. For rule,
of course, he does in most homes.
In his new pride of ownership he
calmly assumes that things must
tilways go his way.
Thus each tries to make the

MANAGER PROMISES TO
MAKE PAULA STAGE STAR
"This was perhaps the most Interesting period of my experi
ence," continued Paula. "Everything was so new, so strange that,
looking back upon It, I am sure It had more to do In shaping my
character and after life than any of my other experiences.
II believe my schooling as an actress
[ht me to spell tolerance with a big T.
arned absolutely that it was not only
lsh but impertinent to question the
honesty of opinion or the motive of any
one's act.
"Because in the stretches of my Imagina
tion there was no ability to compass cer
tain flights of fancy was no reason why I
should deem the fortunate soul who could
float about in these beautiful dreams of
less stamina tbifii myself.
"Because I could not by any means see
myself doing certain things did not make
those acts wrong when done by some other person.
"When I was at school I was absolutely positive lust what I would
do In all circumstances, and before 1 had been on the stage a month I
was only certain of one thing and that was that I could not be quite
sure how I would act in any case.
"It Is a most peculiar world in which the actor lives, Margie, as
entirely different from the ordinary one In which the average person
exists as life on Mars would be from ours.
i i i
"The theatrical manager is absolute czar of all actors and about
him has been built a wall of traditions as ridiculous as It Is Insur
mountable. You can reach the manager only through the little wicket
of his favor and ibat depends entirely on his whim or his pocketbook.
"In all my stage experience I have known only one manager who
had any sense of order, and he was a failure. Every person, from the
greatest star down to the newest chorus girl, must obey the slightest
whim of the manager. His word Is law, his will omnipotent.
"Many an actress has found she has been made a star overnight
because the manager has decided another name In electric lights over
one of his theaters is necessary to further his plans.
"Before I began to rehearse 'Elga,' the manager came to me and
said, 'Do you know, little girl, there hasn't been a star made in five
years? I'll make you one as soon as you get a little more accus
tomed to the technique of the stage. You have the face and the per
sonality and I'll back you to a finish.'
"It seemed my success was Just within reach and I took my part
home and studied It very carefully. I thought it all out, particularly
that great scene where I told my love to Earnest in a youthful, child
ish way.
"Love has made Elga a woman, I said to myself, and loyally, de
votedly, courageously, she will tell her lover this. There will be no
coquettlshness, for when a woman Is coquettish she is acting.
"But when I attempted to play it that way I was stopped by a
voice like that of the bull of Bashan.
" 'Here,' Miss Newton, put some acting into that. Move your urms,
and look the part. Remember you are innocently wooing your lover.'
"I could not tell him no woman, however young, woos Innocently,
using the word In the sense of being Ignorant of what she Is doing,
for by telling him this I would tear down one of man's most cherished
ideals of woman.
"And so, liks every other woman since the world began, I decided
to act —not aa a woman would act In love, but as a man thinks she
should act, and it was my greatest success on the stage."

Almanac gives tho year
1880, which makes her 30.
"A" bet that she was 30 or
over, and "B" that she was

A. AND B.
A.—Billle Burke was born Au

My Dear Miss Grey: In
reply to Molly about the
"Confessions of a Wife," I
do not believe that Margie
Waverly Is In love with Mal
colm Stuart or any other
man. She has lived many
years with her husband and
v has found that her Idol, after
all, had feet of clay, and from
learning this fact she has
also been able to realize that
other men have their faults
as well as the women.
I really think that Margie
is commencing to feel that
she needs some way of ex
pressing herself other than
just being Mr. Dick Waver
ly's wife. She has learned
that a woman needs some
thing more than just love to
balance her life, and I for one
think that It would be one of
the best things that could
happen to her, If she could
have a few children and teach
them.
I do not think because a
married woman Is Interested
in some other man or men,
other than her husband,
that it should necessarily Im
ply that she should be In love
with them, any more than a
man who appears Interested
in women other than his wife
li In love with those women.
AN EXPERIENCED ONE.
Q.—A short time ago one
of your readers asked you to
tell them the proper color to
prepare In anticipation of a
girl or a boy baby. You stat
ed that pink was for boys and
blue for girls. This is not
right. There Is an old Dutch
legend that establishes this,
and It means blue for boys
and pink for girls. D. D.
A.—According to the authorities
at the public library, the way that
I stated the answer Is correct.
Pink is for boys and blue for girls.
This Is an old Dutch custom. When
a boy baby was horn a pink ball
was hung out and when a girl
baby was born a blue bail was dis
played.
Q. —My niece lives In Mon
tana with her father. Her
mother (my sister) Is dead.
She is very unhappy and
wants to come here to live
with me and my family. Her
father objects. She is 18.
Can she come without her
father's consent, and If so,
can he prosecute either one
of us, if I provide transporta
tion for her? A READER.
A.—Your niece may come and
make her home with you if she
chooses without legal Interference
from her father.

You have asked me to write im
pressions received by a non-partl
tan candidate In a partisan cam
paign. They are not very compli
mentary.
There is too much sham, too
many half truths, too many mis
statements and too little real argu
ment.
The speakers of each party have
their own audience, make an ex
parte address and for that reason
have little regard for facts.
It is like a- lawyer trying a case
where be selects the judge, Jury
and tbe witnesses.
Being an Inoffensive non-parti
san candidate, I was kindly In
vited to attend any meeting of
either party 1 desired, and was al
ways accorded a hearing. This
was igreatly appreciated, and I
have the kindliest feeling for the
elected and the defeated, includ
ing the non-partlßan candidates.
During this campaign the dem
ocratic orator would tell his audi
ence that Wilson had kept us out
of war, and would then paint a
word picture of the horrors of
war.
The republican orator would
tell his audience that we were In
war up to our neefcs In Mexico and
describe the atrocities to Ameri
cans and foreigners In Mexico, for
all of which Wilson should be held
to personal account.
The democratic orator would
tell his audience that we should
not sacrifice our manhood and
treasure to save the interests of
Hearst, Otis, etc., and that be
sides, conditions were worse in
Mexico while Taft was president.
The republican orator would,
with streaming eyes, tell of the
lives lost on the Lusltanla, of the
annihilatinn of beautiful Belgium,
and with bowed head, the humil
iation In loss of nstlonal honor.
The democratic orator would
tell of the glorious achievements
brought about by diplomacy; that
the pen have proven mightier lhan
the swords of the most powerful
countries of Europe.
The republican orator would say
that the representatives of the
United States to foreign countrl-'S
were so incapable and inexperieui:

When little Susie had the croup;
when Johnny got his feet wet and
caught cold; when father sprained
his knee; when granny's rheuma

Musterole was right there to give
relief.
Musterole Is a clean, white

Ed aa to make ua the laughing
stock of tbe world.
Republican orators would slate
to their audience tbat the governor
drank intoxicants. The democrat
ic orator would state that the gov
ernor was a total abstainer. One
would claim that Mcßrlde was aa
dry as the desert of Sahara and
the other that he was as wet as a
winter on Puget Sound.
The orators for the county tick
ets were equally at cross purposes.
According to one blind pigs wore
roaming with open eyes. Accord
ing to the other the county was as
dry as a drum.
Thus the one-sided partisan
campaign was conducted.
What is the remedy? I am
afraid there Is none. The people
really like to hear nice things of
their candidates.
It it could be brought about. I
would suggest the following as the
remedy:
Let no partisan meeting be
held. All meetings to be open and
non-partisan and advertised as a
meeting of voters to hear the cam
paign issues discussed by both
sides, the time to be equally di
vided,
i Let no party committee hold a
public meeting without at least 12
hours notice to the other com
mittee, and this committee to
have the right to send speakers
who would be entitled to half the
time.
This may not be feasible, but if
put into effect the meetings would
bo well attended, and more Inter
est taken.
Better men would be candidates
and better officers elected.
It would do away with the half
i truths and misstatements. A
i speaker will not make rash state
i ments, disregard facts or make
• sham and flimsy arguments know
ing that an opposition speaker is
I to follow before the same audl
i ence.
t It would give the same audience
i an opportunity to see and heonme
