Bland had admitted taking his rifle to the Arnold hotel. A 82-20 rifle was produced. "Did you ever show that rifle to Bert Bland," Prosecutor C. D. Cun ningham asked. "Yes sir," answered the sheriff.

SUNDAY SERVICES AWAY SICKNESS KEPT MANY BUT THERE WERE GOOD SERVICES In spite of many members being away through sickness a very fair congergation was in attendance. Mr. Bridge spoke of the "Formality of the Episcopal church." He said that there was an eternal antagonism be tweeVi life and form and yet life was always expressed and communicated This necessary an through form, tagonism lay at the basis of such different attitudes as those of the radical, who believed in the freedom of life and scorned its forms, and the conservative who believed in the preservation of the forms in which life was revealed. The difference be tween the prophet and the priest, be tween the futurist and the historian was determined by the relative valu ,. , , ation each placed upon the life and form. The Episcopal church believed in life, in the continual inspiration of the spirit of God, carrying on and developing the revelation of truth unfold. But such truth must be ex pressed in organic forms just as the sublime truth conveyed by a Beet hoven sonata, or a Shakespeare play was conveyed through a musical or dramatic form built up in conformi ty with definite laws of .music and; drama. This was the philosophy of the worship-forms of the church. "The service we have rendered this morning has been an effort to pre pare our minds and spirits for the in flowing of the divine life. It was not an accidental conglomeration of prayers and psalms, but a carefully ordered whole, psychologically justi fiable at each point." Mr. Bridge then sketched the order of the serv ice and showed how each act, con fession, absolution, petition, praise, had a definite purpose and relation, In speaking of the old testament les son he said "We receiv^ the old testament as the literature of a people fiercely striving to find God. What they thought of God was often hideously wrong; the whole collec- ! tion, containing literary types of utmost variety was unified by this j one idea. But the collection was full : î of error and inconsistency, full of 1 the ideas of primitive people; to at- | tribute these ideas, those often sav- j age moral codes, to Gpd, and to im- J agine the whole collection as In some mysterious way the infallible word j of God was to caricture the whole , literature and to set people to the | worship of God as unlike the Father | of Jesus Christ as could be imagin- I ed. When we sweep away our super- ) stitions we shall discover our Bible. I I , i For Utah Fat Stock Show.
