' v "A deplorable illustration of the gen eral apathy upon the matter," he said, "was shone by the easy, popular assent given to the . 'Ignominious 'treachery practiced upon the Philippine leader, Aguinaldo, by our army officer, Fun ston, a treachery ordered and approved by General MacArthur. The facts in the case were these: Funston disguised himself and some of hia men' in the uniform worn by Filipinos; came in upon Auguinaldov stealthily : under f f s X.1 ' T T 4-i. pretending they, were hungry, made capital out of a holy rite of hospitality. then flung Aguinaldo to the ground and made him captive ' violated the laws of warfare, the law's of, hospital Ity and the law of, God." Dr Parkhurst concluded by saying: , "I have not lived to my age without knowing what internal and infernal lies I sometimes tell myself, and how desperately hard I sometimes work m the effott: to fool myself. v "And I would stake all I am worth on -the assertion that In this particular vou are Just like me: Insincere, eva slve; knowing God, slinking off into the woods with the - serpent; fascinated with the face of Jesus, daubing his face with an amalgam of lust , and higher criticism: knowing duty, lying out of It; beholding God, crouching be hind the trees. .
