A SERMON ON "BUSINESS."
But in spite of the wobblety- wob-ness oX Ford's paper on the Jewish question, I am glad to say that it does hit the nail on the head sometimes. For -instance, here is an extract that succeeds in getting more hard, solid truth into fewer words than I ever saw dene before. Read : Business is not the reason these United States were founded, Neither is government the rea- sob. The Declaration of IndeD- cndence is not a business charter, And the fourth verse: expired.

They are servants only, never were any thing but servants, and never caused anything but trou ble when they forgot for a time that they were servants. The moment the people become ad juncts to business, or to govern ment, that moment the law of retribution begins to work, for such a relation is unnatural, immoral, inhuman wrong every way. in It ought to be fundamental that you will never find what is good for business or government un til you find what is good for the people; and it is equally funda mental that what appears to be good for business or government is not to be trusted at all until it has been tested by the principle of the people's good.

Sav. honev. did vou know the Bible talks about automobiles? weuf it does, anyhow Just et your Bible and turn to the sec pnd chapter of Nahum and read, beginning at the third verse: "The chariots shall be with flaming torches in theday of his preparation." streets; they shall jostle one gainst another m ft e broad way s ; they shall geem torche th shall Uke liffW.inf m, , ' -k tm wwb f-wn r ii wi r nit atit i X lici c is yuui gaauiiucuugjr with its head-lights gleaming as it goes dashing along at night.

The man who wrote that had some way of KNOWING what would be in these last days, and his descrip- tion fits the automobile just to a gnat's heel, and it couldn't fit anything else. Search all . down through the ages and , you will nnt find anv chariot'? that such a discription can be applied to till you come to the modern au- tomobile, and there you have it.

What do you think about it this time, Uncle Jerry? JULY, 192L She Don't Know Where She's At Mrs. J. C. Coons, of Seifner, Fla., seems t6 be on both sides of the soul question. She writes me a letter in which she argues FOR the immortality of the soul, and then she encloses a lot of -tracts that argue right the other way. In her letter she says: ' "You apparently do not believe m the immortality of the soul. Are there not more texts for thai against, immortalitvl" wr , . ' . than against immortality. As a- mmiui utuior. matter oi laet, mere is only one text in th Rihle that favors th in i in i i i IiU i.ii - in i . i i - w-. w MUv. HU.w devil is the author of that one. You will nnd it m Genesis 3:4. It was the devil who said to- the woman, "Thou shalt notsure- My die." And upon that lie of the I , . . - - devil the whole orthodox theory 1S built. - But on the other hand, there are hundreds of texts to prove that the soul is NOT immortal. In fact y0u don't have to pick out texts. The whole connected Bible teach- mg ia that the wages of sin is- DEATH the soul that sinneth it 'shan DIE. And if a soul c&n mEj isn?t that all the proof we need that it is not immortal? Letters Classified as Advertising, The Fooi-Killer has always had a habit of printing a column or so , of letters that come in with sub scriptions. It was my desire ta give the readers of the paper a little space in which to express themselves and get acquainted with each other. But the Burleson- ,nffi(1 mot k..-, . busy and issued a ruling that these letters were advertising," and X was required to pay a higher rate of postage because of them. So the only possible course was to cut them out. Other papers are allowed to print letters from their readers, but The Fool-Killer is not. This is another sample of the "freedom" and "equality" that we have in this courtry. Let us hope chat the new P. M. General these i i ii i t- ixjuuesou uiuuuers uu uorrewi them.
