Coffin of Batesvil'le. a forme;- Lawrence county citi zen, was a Walnut Ridge visitor Monday. Mr. Coffin was county clerk for a number of years in Lawrence county and was the first cashier of the Lawrence County Bank. While talking to the architect of this column he recited the following joke per pertrated by the late Ike Bag ley on his friend, the late W. M. j Ponder. It seem.- that at one time Col. Ponder conceived the idea of raising a big lot of mules 'and purchased a big lot of Tex as mare ponies for this purpose. He kept them in the Cache river ; bottoms, but the enterprise was not a success. First one thing happened then another. Finally the remnant of pony mares made their escape and there a feeling of relief came over their owner. About this time the Ponder gin burned and Bagley met Col. Ponder and told him how he sympathized with him in his bad luck. The Col. said: “Well, it is not so bad, I have had the gin for a great many ; years and it has well paid for itself.” “T don't *r>e»rt +b»t ” isaid Bagley, “I was sympathiz-' ling with you because somebody j [found your Texas ponies and have just brought them home.” —Walnut Ridge Blade.

At the request of a number of the readers of the Independent, the >ermon delivered by Rev. Henry E. Spears, rector of St. Pauls, on last Sunday, on "Our Life After eath" is published be low : “OUR LIFE AFTER DEATH." Text I Peter, 3:18 and 10: “Christ * * * being put to death in the flesh, butquickened by the Spirit, by which also He went and preached unto the spir its in prison." This old Cchurch of ours, hav ing the Apostles or Nicene Creed recited at every service, presents the Life of Our Divine Master in a wonderful order. This is true since that Life of all Lives is [ presented in a wonderful way from Advent to Trinity. For this, we may well thank God; and yet, it needs to be remem bred Our Lord Christ has not ; given us this knowledge of His ; life and death, simply that we might know something, but that we might Do and Re something. It is only as the Knowledge of' the Creed or Bibie reacts upon TVlilv T n t f 1'1/M* have the least chance to do us any good. In other words, Knowledge is not power, until it is applied. You may know that water will put out fire, but what good can it do you, if’ you do not pour the one on the other, when your bou-e is in flames? None at all. And so it is about the Gospel truths. It is not enough to have a knowledge of them, for ; it is only as that knowledge is , applied that we can either Do or > Be that which leading the • Christian life implies. Too ; many are all their lives through j prone to forget that each Art icle 1; the Christian Faith carries with it a Moral Significance or Mean- 1 ing that can not end in having ; had the first Theatre of its ac- 1 lion in the Person of Christ Je- ■ sus, Our Lord. In other words, ■ the Moral Significance of the Creeds is that they must be , j made part and parcel of our Dai-. ■ ly lives. That Christ be born in ( them: that Christ be raised in them; that Christ ascend, not , into Heaven, but to the Throne ■ of our hearts, so that He may sweeten and gladden and full them with unselfish service. However, il is not a question of service that is to be foremost in jur thoughts today. Not not that, but as this Flesh and Blood life is so uncertain and Death so near, making it obliga tory for each of us to pass out of this life into one of which we say in the Creed so often, “He des cended into He ll,” let us in view )f 1 hose things, t hink of the (Jos pol of Hades, or Our Life After Death. Let us do so that we may find out what we can from the Word of Cod about the \ in the I’nseen World.. Then cast deal to be said about it, but it is impossible to do mon at present than pick up a few drains of gold here and there. The world is full of people who say, “We do not know anything about the Life in the Oeat Be yond. This is true, if we admit the Bible cannot be relied upon. However, I take it as a matter of course that 1 do not speak to minds of that type. Be that as it may, let us get an answer to the question, “What does it mean, when we say in the Creed, “He descended into Hell?” Does it moan Dm* 7 ('liriut miiit into (he Place of Everlasting Punishment, he it a place of Fire pr what not? Then it must be said, it does not, for the word ‘Heir means the Place of De parted Spirits, or the State be tween this Earth—Life and Heaven. The Jews believed in such a Place, and so could understand what Our Lord’s words to the Penitent thief meant, “Today 'halt thou be with Me in Para iise.” Now this is true since ‘Paradise” does not mean Hea ven, but the Place of departed Spirits, as we can see from the words of the Apostle, St. Peter. Slow St. Peter was beyond ques ion aJew and shows in his Epis le what the Jewish belief was,in •egard to Life in the Paradise iVorld. He does this in this /ery Epistle where he writes ‘that after His death Christ \ vent and preached to the Spirits n prison, which sometimes were disobedient.” It is evi lent, therefore, the Judg nent Day had not come or those “Spirits,” for if it had, vhy should Our Lord have gone (Continued on Page 4.)
