An Interesting Letter
Continued from Puge 1
the awful, yet sublime complex
features of my self- invited guest
Lined upon his countenhncc were
plainly seen, yet ever changing, pic
tures of unrest and contentment,
struggles and quietude; hatred and
love, joy, sorrow, happiness, anguish,
hope, despair jparadise and purgatory;
Heaven and,, hell all these chasing
each other over his remarkable fea
tures like a mighty tempest followed
by a golden sun in a blue sky, until
complete control seemed to reign
supreme, and the benign old man
turned toward me as if expecting
some salutation. Impelled to speak,
I qucrricd, "Whence comcst thou and
whither gocst?" With a voice which
I shall never forget, sweet and tender,
yet as firm as the everlasting hills, he
replied: "Up out of infinity, on into
eternity." For a time I sat in amaze
ment, then taking courage from his
friendly attitude, and with an abiding
feeling that he would do me good, I
entered into converse with him and
talked long into the night. He seemed
to me like a Prophet of old his
knowledge of the world's history and
of mankind was marvelous he knew,
too, of other worlds, and seemed at
home anywhere in the universe.
During these hours of converse
with such profound Wisdom nnd
Learning, I sought to untangle some of
the perplexing threads of human life
some that enter so many human
hearts to challenge the wisdom of the
Creator, or' his benelirience. I asked
him why Sorrow should feast and fatten
on the heart-aches of humankind,
while an all-wise and loving Creator
ruled the world; why should war and
pestilence, famine and scourge, so
often sweep our world; why should
the weak be trampled upon by the
strong; why should the thousands
suffer in hunger and cold while many
revelled in luxury unmeasured; why
should Greed with his distorted fea
tures chase love and mercy from the
human breast; why should Evil lurk
at the hearthstone of joy and con
tentment, rcidy to assassinate the ten
dercst emotions of mankind; why
should evil and sin be so bold and ar
rogant while righteousness and virtue
stand trembling; why should hard, j
wickedcruol, marc ihs humanity be
permitted to nail God to the cross?
The old man turned toward me at
length, in sympathy placed his hand
upon my head, and said: "My son, I
cannot tarry much longer with you in
personal converse. I am interested in
you, and in all the sons of men. Since
the earliest dawn of creation I have
wandered down the steps of time,
have watched each generation unfold,
sometimes with its eyes down towards
the dust-earth on which we trod;
sometimes towards the stars
with its heart throbbing with the
sensation of its kinship with the In
finite and during all the centuries
climbing the mountain side toward
the light of Heaven. Yes, there have
been wars and pestilence and sorrows
of many kind, such as you have named,
and many more. Would you forget
all sorrow, and banish jt from human
life? When I am through and have
gone reflect upon this. Yes, cold
cruel humanity nailed the Savior to
the cross, and flung out athwart the
sky in letters of burnished gold, foT
humanity to forever read, to write
upon its heart and thereby climb
to the very gates of glory the dearest,
tenderest, soul redeeming, sublimest
most God-like words to redeem the
human soul Forgive, forgive, FOR
GIVE. The unspeakable tenderness with
which the old man spoke the word,
"forgive"so touched my heart and
memory that I wept and sobbed aloud.
Ho waited until 1 was calm again,
then took me by the; hand and con
tinued: My friend of this evening's
meditation, listen yet a few words
more. Would you be a mere auto
moton, with your sensibilities, your
emotion, your volition hung upon
rigid hinges which could only swing
back and forth in a given segment,
without power to choose even evil
if you please. If you were creating a
race of humans and wished to endow
them with faculties most susceptible
of reaching out and finding the most
ecstatic joys winch a pure spirit may
know, would you set them thus rigid
with no power to turn aside or gee
ought save the tread of the narrow
roadway which they must ever travel.
Would you crcat them so, or would
you give them a orld of ever changing
scenes and forces, with beauty, goodness,-joy
and bliss, with the attribute
of the Divine the power to choose
and seek all these or spurn them
the power to do wrong and be for
given, and the power to sulTcr wrong
and forgive. He went on more rapidly
and earnestly, it seemed to me, until
I could see only the beauty and love
in our world predominating. Felt
that i,he gift of the power and tendency
to forgive a wrong brought joy
so serene that the wrongs of life made
no abiding scar. Seeing my face
brighten as I began to catch the les
sons he sought to teach, he pressed
mo hard and put mo to the test, but
with voice and manner as gentle as
a mother's lullaby If you have been
wronged by any one think of all
the wrongs you have ever suffered
can you, do you forgive all sue h.wrongs
this night. Yes, yes, I cried I do, I do.
If you have wronged any one in this
wide world do you this night crave
their pardon. Oh, yes, yes, a thou
sand times yes, I wish and ask their
pardon. He seemed to have taught
me what he wished and rose to gc
laying his card reversed upon my
table. I must go, he said, my young
est child I must christen to-night,
pray, with me, that his whole life
may bring happiness to all mankind
He was gone. I was for a time so
overcome with the sanctity of his
presence find wondering at such a
visit by such a visitor, forgetting that
he had left his card, until I was aroused
by the crowing of the cock. I quickly
turned it over and saw written across
its face his name - "Old Father Time."
This aroused me still more and I
perceived that I had been dreaming
for several hours, and my watch
measured the quarter 'til midnight.
Whether it be all a dream, or whe
ther the musing was born of a reflective
mind, I have been so impressed, that
I here now during the last few minutes
of the dying year cry out to every one
to whom I have done aught that's
wrong, whether consciously or un
consciously, your forgiveness I humbly
pray; and to all in this widc"w6rld
who have wronged me, I cry: "For
given, forgiven," and blot the memory
of such wrong from my heart for
ever. I now register a vow, as" the
minutes falling into seconds touch
the going of the old and coming of
the New Year, that fur the c ming
twelve months, and for all the time
I may have given me, I shell Kh k for
daily guidance to Him who taught
the world forgiveness.
And this letter, my dear friends,
shall be your New Yenrs's greeting
from me, and as the New Year glides
so quietly in, I say: "God bless, cheer
nnd prolong your dear and useful
THOUSAND OF TESTS
. SHOW CORN UNFIT.
Seedmen. Buying Quarter of a
Million Bushels, Malte Fcrty
Robison Brothers of Waterloo, Neb.,
have made from thirty to forty tests of
corn from all parts of Nebraska every
day since Nevcmber 1 5. The corn was
sent to them to test as they buy 25,
bushels or more each year for seed..
This is the plain, matter of fact state
ment made by the firm:
"Fifty per cent of the corn gathered
before the snows early in the winter
will not germinate. The corn gathered
since the snows and early frosts is
absolutely worthless as seed. Wc
have made hundreds of tests and al
ways with this same result."
