In the first place, the rat who wore It
was constantly on the move all night

awake, and' In the next the sounds
brought scores of new . rats to the
house. Instead of being afraid ot the

.How .have the hypothetical scien

benefited themselves or humanity at
large by sowing the seeds of doubt
broadcast In the world? The real sci
entists do not fall In this category, tor
they are believers In the real sens ot
the word; they hnow too much, they,
have seen too many mysterious, mani
festations of the. Divine creative pow
er,, Now, those who have disposed ot
the Bible and all evidences of inspira
tion, have written a great many books
and some of them have won what the
world at large lightly calls tame. Ac
cording to the ordinary measures Jhut
are applied in such cases, they hava
been extremely successful, but real
success means the benefit of human
ity In soma form or other. If nonsuch
benefits can be shown as the result of
their labors, their success Is not equal
to that achieved by the direst poverty
and the deepest Ignorance. Joel
