A creed is to be read as understanding- its true authority. No creed rests pon the authority of Christ nimseii. reeds do rest apparently on the sutuorisy of the councils m hlch issued thetu. But this not all that inlcht be desired. A uni versal council is not a synonym for the Al mighty. Creeds are not transcripts of some heavenly manuscript set up from copy brought down hy little angels Constantino ndeed commanded the assembled Disn- ops to receive the decrees ot in. council of Nice as "dictates of the Holy Spirit; but toon Conatantine Is pen to the suspicion of not being an expert a "things of the spirit" The story of many of the councils is a tale ot violent and acri monious disputes: of metaphysical hair splitting and theologiral Jugglery; of polit ical intrigue and eeclesiasl ical mummery ; ot bitter passions breaking forth Into words of execration, with anathemas Instead of ben edictions; a scene of clenched fists and rawn swords; of soldiers keeping Dtan- ops from each other's throtts; oi bloody massacres and stealthy assassina tions. Tne decrees of sucn councils are plainly not matters of plenary Inspiration bv anv snlrit whose dominating character istic la holiness One thing Is thus made providentially clear, that the truth of the creed rests not on the authority of the body setting It forth; but on Its own intrinsic truthfulness its interpretation of the Chris- ian consciousness. Its authority will last so long and only so long as it continues to emress the Christian consciousness, ana to Interpret satisfactorily the problems of nature and man In the light of the spirit ot Jesus Christ. All creed Is read aright as It is continually carried back to Its sources. The Nieene creed was an attempt to atato logically and philosophically the teachings of the New Testament. It can only continue to stand as It Is seen to rest unmistakably on thta foundation. This forces on the ehnrcu the continual duty ot showing that every affir mation of the creed can be proven from scripture, and not of stretching her author- tv aentlv whenever mere is any ouesnon on this point The scriptures are not the bed-rock of the foundation oi tne laitn. Reason and conscience tested them and stamped them as divine. A creed must be ever brought back to this mint of man for assaying. It must be shown not to have de preciated, Kn creed can long stand which does not square with fact; which does not rest on the granite rock of reason; wuicu does not stand plumb with the line of eter nal rlehteousne.s. A creed to be read aright most be read in the light ot the larger life of faith out of which its springs, and of which It is a part. As von see the truth in your neighbor's creed you will better see the truth In your own creed. To know tne creeds oi otner re ligions is to gain many a clew to the mean Ing of our Christian creeds. What Is tne prospect for an intellectual understanding of Its great creeds. If a church practically reissues that edict of the fourtn council oi Carthage: "'o bishop shall read a Gentile book?" A creed is to be read as dealing wltn themes transcending all human thought, and therefore its affirmations are not to be read as exset statements The themes with which a creed deals are tho profonndest problems which can tax a man's mind: the moat raosa-ve mysteries which fascinate hie intellect, the riddles over which successive fenerations have nuzzled themselves wear- ilv. What then must be the nature or ail his thoughts upon such high things? Words thrown out at transcendent mys terles Attempts to express the inexpres sible, to deilne the Indefinable, to know the unknowable. The true meaning of a creed Is to be found not In what It states, bnt in what it suggests. A dictionary will not ade quately Interpret a creed. A creed Is to be read aa Including a phi losophy, which can be rightly Interpreted only bv the philosopbically-mlndeiL The language of the Sicenecreea concerning in. incarnation Is pure plillosopny. we snow this from the character of the words em ployed. They are the technical terms of metaphysics They can be traced np to the philosophers of paganism by whom they were minted. In the works of the Nicene fathers we see men of acute and sometimes deep metaphysical powers, wrestling with the very uroblems which have always furn ished the materials for pnilosopny.reacning philosophical conclusions by philosophical methods and expressing tnem In philosoph ical terms Technical terms of a science or of a philosophy turned ont of their native region and used In the everydsy speech of men mu-it not be expected to convey mneh meaning. The popular prejudice against the doetrfneof the Trinity is mainly dne to this failure to recognize it as philosophy. A creed is to be read as a form of sound words, which may not only be said bnt sung. A creed dealing with transcendent themes must not onlv pliiiosophize.lt tnusf poetizi thus to interpret through the imagination the mysteries of the faith. God Is declared to be -the Maker of Heaven and earth Yet the Almighty Is no celestial carpenter, Creating is not a manufacture, but a growth. Of Christ It Is declared that "H ascended Into Heaven and sltteth on the right hand of th lather. The Most High hat no right hand. The throne of Christ Is of nanaht which can be seen. It is a noetic statement of the truth that Christ Is enthroned In power in the spirit spheres Such metaphors are plainly to be read, not literally, bat figuratively. sensible man does not charge a child with Insincerity ia using the language of Imagi nation. Such Intelligence ana aa ties are reserved tor the saiata In dealing with one another's faiths Every troth in the creed is all and more than all It Is taken for In the literal sense by the men who have nothing if they have not a fact Every great creed Is a symbol. Its sign somewhat which it does not fully disclose. It Is a picture writing, a sacred hieroglyph. A creed is to be read differently by different minds. A mathematical formula does not admit of different renderings A philosoph ical and noetic statement concerning tran scendrnt mysteries not only allows ot different meanings hy different minds it necessitates such various render ings We must always take Into account the parallel In our observation of eelestii phenomena. It Is by their changing mean Ings, that the words of a great creed prove to be beams from that God wno is ever no- fore the human soul as the Infinite Truth, whose light falls on the myriad spirits turn ing beavenward toward him, breaking Into the myriad-hoed beauties of the thoughts which sre arrested In th. minds sunning themselves In his rays When the apostles spesk under Inspire tion.everv man hears tbem "speaking ia nil own languags" When you nnd a creed wbich bat only on meaning, you may tar there It no deep meaning In It whatso ever. To Insist oa on and th same read Ing of a creed is possible only In tb case machine mn reading a machln creed. ehaln gang is not the type of the march of man after th spirit of train. A creed mast b read as having growing leanings The creed which Is to msk room for a growing man must be roomy, must have Isrge thoughts to grow Dp Into, and lastte words to admit of such expan Ion. A fixed and ana! creed Is a contradic tion of terms It assumes tb Infallible which Its origin disclaims and denies itself as tb living growth ot th human spirit which ia Its only tustineation.

The President Will Not Appoint the Sin New Circuit Court Judges I ntll Decem ber Only Met of Highest Legal Ability to bo Chosea. Washisotos, June 1. President Harrison has finally determined not to appoint the nine new circuit court judges until next December. He says no member has yet been sele-teil. Political belief, it is understood, will not be the dominant requisite for ap pointment to these positions It ia the intention of the president to select men for these places of the very highest legal ability, and with the view of ob taining such talent the legal work of candidates will be carefully scrutin ized, and wherever it is possi able their briefs and printed arguments before their respective su preme courts will be secured and sub jected to examination. The ability and legal acumen expressed m these docu ment wilt therefore, have much weight in assisting the president in reaching his conclusions This is taken as an indication that perhaps there may be a democrat appointed in one of the southern circuits The appoint ments of the five land court judgea ia looked for confidently this week.
