THE PROBLEM OF THEOLOQY.
Dr. G. Campbell Morgan de
livers J an address recently to the
Winona Uible Conference, in
which he said: "Death ought to
have no place in human life.
Death is unnatural. If man had
not sinned he never would have
died, and bad he not sinned his
body would have been metamor
phized as was the body of Jesus."
This is a very favorite theory of
some theologians, but science
shows us that death existed m the
world long before the advent of
man. In the geological ages the
huge saurian fought and devour
ed each other, were born, lived
and died, millions of years before
man came upon earth. Con
sequently death is not the result
of sin. Then, as now, the
physical frame grew old with the
lapse of years, and after a time
decay set in. In those days every
convulsion of nature was sup
posed to he an evidence of (Jod's
wrath toward man. The Bible in
forms us "in the latter days there
shall be wars and rumors of wars
and earthquakes in divers places."
holding that the earthquakes are
the result of man's disobedience.
This is not the result of Chris
tian teachings alone. Pagan
Rome believed that these mani
festations were owing to the di
vine displeasure of the Gods for
forsaking the religion of their an
cestors, and therefore the Chris
tians were responsible for it.
Kery persecution which the early
church suffered came front the
theory. It is not original with the
church, but the church adopted it.
When Phillip II sent his "In
vincible Armada" against Eng
land and it was destroyed by a
storm in spite of the fact that it
had been blessed by the pope, he
attributed its loss to the fact that
he had extended some toleration
to the Jews, and this was an evi
dence of the Divine displeasure.
Consequently he quietly burned
thousands of unfortunate He
brews and drove 300,000 of the
rest of them out of Spain. They
revenged themselves upon him by
professing to be converted and
becoming the agents of the
Spanish. Inquisition aiding in
torturing and burning the Chris
tians in turn. All this comes
from rejecting the teachings of
the science and listening to the
crazy theories of theologists like

If Secretary McAdoo should
resign in June, at the time of his
marriage to the president's
daughter, Woodrow would have to
bid Mac adieu.
The republican papers are not
harping so much about thedemo
cratic administration as they
were a month ago. Why don't
thev tell the reason why They
don't dare to."
We heard a man the other day
remark that President Wilson
should declare war against
Mexico. We asked hint if he
would enlist in such an event, and
he said he did not know bo much
about, that, but didn't think that
he would. And that is the way
with most of those fellows who
are clamoring for war. They
want war, but prefer to stay at
home and watch the return of
those boys who do go. And lots
of them would return in coffins.
A delegation of Chicago wom
en complain that the aldermen
"lack dignity. This is the most
inoffensive thing that has been
said about the Chicago aldermen
in many years.
It has been something over a
week since Senator Fall of New
Mexico spouted off his jingoism
in the senate, and the somewhat
inflated list of deaths of Ameri
cans in Mexico, and the killings
has been published over the coun
try. And yet the popular demand.
as nearly as can be judged merely
from what men say of Mexico and
war proves day to day, is still for
peace and not for war.
President Wilson frowns on the
literary test for immigrants, and
vaguely suggests some other sys
tem of improving the average of
immigrants. He would have
helped more had he been more
definite.' 'Education is not always
evidence of character, but it is
doubtless a help in that direction,
as well as an effective means to
ward increased usefulness.
America isn't crowded, but
enough so that we may safely be
gin to pick and choose.
It will be well for the demo
cratic voters of Nebraska to -study
well the character and qualities of
every man mentioned for gover
nor, and vote intelligently on
every candidate placed upon the
primary ticket. If they will do
this we are satisfied that they will
decide in favor of Hon. R. 1).
Sutherland of Nuckolls county.
He is a mau of the people and
contains all the excellent qualities
attributable to a gentleman and
scholar, and one who commands
the confidence and respect of
those who know him.
Mayor Saltier should be re
elected for many reasons, and
when wo mention some of these
reasons we believe that more than
two-thirds of the voters
of the city will agree with
the Journal. First, he has tilled
the position of mayor with honor
to himself and credit to the city.
Second, there has been more pub
lie improvements accomplished
under his administration than
under any one person who has
served in the capacity of mayor.
Among these improvements is the
paving of Vine street. Fourth,
Fifth and Pearl streets, the pur
chase of a new city hall, and con
crete sidewalks replace most of
the dilapidated board sidewalks
that existed before Mayor Saltier
assumed the reigns of govern
ment. Third, a sinking fund has
been created which has been the
means of reducing the bonded in
debtedness of the city 10,000.
The Journal simply desires to
keep these facts before the citi
zens of Plattsmouth because they
are facts worthy of note. In tho
past the years Plattsmouth in
general has improved more than
in any ten previous years, and this
has been greatly due to the fact
that we have had a public-spirited
administration, with John P. Sat
tler in the lead. There is an old
saying and a very true one: "Let
well enough alone," and profit
thereby. When the property
owner sees the administration of
the city government taking the
lead in improvements they gen
erally follow suit in fixing up
their private properties, and this
they have done. Never turn a
good man down. John Saltier has
served the people of Plattsmouth
faithfully, and will keep on doing
so as long as he is at the head of
the city government.
THE TYPHOID FLY.
As we were sitting iu the sunny
room of the house yesterday aft
ernoon idly looking through the
window and contemplating the
near approach of spring, a fly
suddenly passed across our vision
upon the pane of glass. We hail
ed his presence with joy, as it ac
centuated the evidence then in our
mind of the passing of winter.
The lone fly was not an unwel
come visitor. But the fly will not
long be a solitary wanderer across
the window pane; soon others will
creep forth from their winter's
hiding places, ami the process of
multiplication will go on until
there are myriads of them, and
they will again be the pest and
menace of humanity during the
summer days. We will then hear
on every hand "swat the lly." Why
not begin early, and swat the
single tly as he appears on the
sunny side of the house on these
first warm days The depart
ment of agriculture at Washing
ton has been investigating disease
bearing insects during the past
winter months and we may get
much information regarding the
lly for the asking. "We have never
heard of the typhoid lly," the
average person will say on hear
ing that insect mentioned. The
typhoid tly is merely an old ac
quaintance in disguise. The de
partment of agriculture's scien
tists have decided that this is the
most appropriate name for the in
sect commonly known as the
"house lly," which is the most
da'ngerous creature, although
considered as most simply a
nuisance by many people. This
tly is one of the most active
agents in spreading typhoid
fever. It spreads Asiatic cholera
and other diseases of the in
testines. It has even been known
to be a minor factor in spreading
tuberculosis. If the name of the
typhoid lly could be popularized,
perhaps a more general idea could
be given of the danger that lurks
wherever the pest is present. An
other name which has been sug
gested for this pest is even better
than the ordinary term "house
tly." This name is "manure lly."
The insect is quite as partial to
manure as it is to the house. Its
chief breeding place is the manure
heap. In eradicating the breeding
place of this pest, however, the
department is seeking a method
that will accomplish the work
without lessening the value of the
fertilizer. Satisfactory progress
has been made ami announce
ments concerning new methods
probably will be issued soon. The
department is also investigating
the stable lly, which is an import
ant enemy to agriculture, in that
it seriously reduces the value of
live slock. It is also suspected of
carrying infantile paralysis. In
Montana the department is con
ducting another investigation of a
disease bearing insect. This is
the carrier of "spotted fever" a
species of stick in the northern
Rocky mountain region. Still an
other investigation has to do with
the posibility that pellagra is
transmitted by insects. This has
not yet been proven. The depart
ment of agriculture's bureau of
entomology has a bulletin for dis
tribution dealing with the typhoid
Cy. Remedies and preventives are
recommended. It can be had on

A subscriber submits the fol
lowing argument as to the "cost
of living" which now seems to
have thoroughly aroused the
country from coast to coast and
from tho Canadian to the Mexi
can line: "Wo are letting a lot
of timber go to waste ami buying
wire fences and lumber front
foreign countries; we throw
away our grease and ashes and
buy our soap; we raise too many
dogs anil buy too many hogs; we
raise too many weeds and buy
too much tobacco; we have loo
much lawn and too little space
devoted to the raising of vege
tables; we build a handsome
school and send our children
away to be educated; we splash a
lot of 15-cent whisky into our 10
cent stomachs; we catch a 5-cent
llsh with a !?I5 rod and an $vS
reel; we send our boys out with a
$ 10 gun and a S50 dog to shoot
a 20-eent rabbit, ami we mort
gage our homes to buy four-price
autos which we do not know how
to operate or keep in repair in
a word, it's the cost of high liv
ing and not the high cost of liv
ing which worries us.
New York is large and con
ceited; so much so that any citi
zen front there is apt to view the
rest of the world as from the top
of a skyscraper. Yet a slight
demonstration from Medicine Hat
and points north is sufficient to
show the mighty metropolis how
strongly it leans on the rest of
the world. A day's blockade, and
there is talk of a famine in fuel
and food. A week's tie-up vou!d
certainly result in suffering and
probably many deaths. No, New
York couldn't dwell long alone,
for the urban resident has no cel
lar full of pickled prunes and
pork and beans to tide over a
hard winter, or any considerable
section thereof. And, while the
rest of the world may depend up
on New York a good deal for
fashions and musical comedy and
magazines, most of its products
seem things of vanity when the
necessities are lacking, anil New-
York should be more humble un
til it gets the snow shoveled off
Of course every citizen who
believes in good schools, with
comfortable quarters for the chil
dren, will vole for the school
bonds. The proposition is a most
justifiable one, and no one know
this belter than the board of
education, all the members of
which favor it but one. The
board of education should favor
any proposition that is supposed
to be of benefit to those who at
tend the city schools, and if more
room is needed for the comfort of
the children who attend it should
be given them. Don't let a small
amount of taxes deter you from
voting for the bonds. If you have
no children of your own, bear in
mind that if it had not been for
the liberal class of citizens you
perhaps would not have so much
of an education as you have to
day. Don't forget that what was
done for you is just what you
hould do for those boys and
girls of today.

SS.) lie said in part:
I was prompted tn the selection of
my text for today ly reading an ex
tract from tho sermon of a Canadian
minister delivered recently. In it he
declared that 101 1 would witness the
Seoond Coming of Christ, etc. Ills
statement allowed the inference that
ho holds the view common to nearly
all tho creeds; namely, that the earth
Is to bo burned up and tho huuun race
blotted out; and that, incidentally
Christ will come a second time, to see
that nono of the Church are lududod
in tho destruction.
Mistakes of Dark Ages Being Cor
To my understanding, all such ex
pectations are wholly unscrlptural. un
true, misleading, and hindrances to a
right understanding of tho Bible. They
belong to the Dark Ages, when public
teachers seemed to lose nil approcia
tlon of poetic language, figurative lan
guage, mental Imagery. They belong
to tho time when Christ's references to
Gehenna Fire, which burned outside
the wall of Jerusalem, were under
stood to mean -an eternity of torture
for nil except the saintly few. They
lolong to the time when Jesus words
respecting tho cutting off of the right
hand and the plucking out of a right
eve were misunderstood, aud taken lit
St. Peter's words are generally urged
to bo tho foundation for the theory
that tho world will be destroyed by
literal fire at tho Second Coming of
Christ, when the heavens shall lo on
fire, nnd tho earth also nnd tho things
therein shall be burned up (2 Peter
3:lltt. A literal interpretation here
overlooks tho fact that St. Peter, speak
lug of the very same time, in Acts
3:10-21, declares that Times of Itestitu
tiou nnd blessing not times of world-
burning will follow the Second Com
Ing of Jesus. It also overlooks the
fact that St. Peter and the other Apos
tles, ns well ns the Master, frequently
used the word fire in a symbolic sense,
to represent tribulation. Thus St. Pe
ter, addressing the Church, says.
"Think it not strange concerning the
fiery trial that shall try you."
St. Paul says that tho fire of that
Day shall try the work of every man
the Church, of what sort It is. Those
who have built with goid, silver, pre
cious stones I the promises of God's
Word, shall be fire-proof in that Day;
while those who have built with the
wood, hay nnd stubble of human tra
dition Higher Criticism. Human Evo
lution, etc. will find their faith struc
ture amenable to the fire: and they
will suffer the loss of faith nnd have
tribulations accordingly. Yet,- tho
Apostle explains, such will themselves
be saved, but these very fiery trials
will destroy their misconceptions.
They will lo saved because, in spite
of their errors, they built their faith
upon Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:11-13.
The Apostle, however, urged that nil
should build with gold, silver and pro
rious stones characteristics which
Would enable them to pass through
the fire of that Day unscathed "more
than conquerors." Similarly, Jesus re
ferred to a testing of faith, by the fig
ure of a flood, telling that those who
built upon the sand would suiTer loss,
but that those who built upon tho
Bock would be safe. All these Scrip
tures, however, these references to
fiery trials, etc., belong to the end of
the Ago not the end of the world.
"The Earth Abideth Forever.
The Bible teaches that in God's great
Plan lie has provided various epochs,
or ages, each for the accomplishment
of its own special work; as for in
stance, the Jewish Age with Its work,
and the Gospel Age with its work, to
bo followed by tho Millennial Age and
its still different work. The Bible de
clares that "the earth abideth forever"
(Ecclesiastes 1:4); that "God created it
not in vain; He formed It to be inhab
ited." (Isaiah-4o:S.) ; The earth' has
never yet been inhabited. ! There are
immense tracts of country still unoc
cupied. The Divine Piaa for the earth
has not yet reached consummation. It
will require the thousand years of Mes
siah's glorious Kingdom Power to
bring the world out of present sin and
death conditions, and into the glorious
conditions of Millmnial blessings and drinking, building. pLiatlitf atI mr
Iiestitutlou. of which the Scriptures so i rjkg "ill proceed as mua,; at.I te
frequently sieak. and which St- Pe
ter declares God has spoken by the
mouth of all His holy Prophets.
So then, the basis for thinking of the
end of the world, now or ever, is pure
ly a misunderstanding, due largely to
the fact that our English translation
uses the word world where it would
more properly have used the word Age.
Epoch, or order of things. In a word,
the present order of things, of which
the Sertptures declare Satan is the
prince, or ruler. Is not to t-e perpetual;
it Is to pass away. A new order cf

Romans r:!7, 21.
Christ's Second Coming.
The Bible everywhere represent
that Christ left a Heavenly giory when
He came t earth nearly umeteeti cea-
urie ago. "The Logos was mace
nosh and dwelt among us." The P.it e
explains that the necessity fr this
humiliation, this leaving the glory at:d
taking a Landman's form, lay In the
fact that God tad pronounced a death
sev.ten-e upon num. which manklad
wore paying ami from which they
c ukl not t o released unless seme one
would become the-ir redeemer and meet
the penalty for them a death penalty,
not an eternal trment it-unity, of
whk-h the Scriptures know nothing.
The EiMe nowhere tells that Jesus
took the human nature to keep It for
ever, anl to return with it t. Heaven,
where it would Ihj completely out of
order and nut of place. The Pil.!e
teaches, on tho contrary, that "rVsh
and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom
of God" (I Corinthians ir.:."V); and that
Jesus was made tlesh merely "that He
by the grace of Gtd should taste death
for every man" (Hebrews 2.-t); and
that after doing this work He wou'd
"aseend up where He was ln-fore"
(John O.iVJ). St. Paul assures us th.it
this, the Divine Program, has Iwn car
ried out. After telling of our Lord".;

ans 2:.V11; Kphcsians 1:20 23.
The Master declared plainly. "Yet a
little while, and the world shall see
Me i:o more"; but He promised that
He should be seen ly Ills foriowers.
St. John declares. "We hnll l-e like
Him; for vce shall see Ilim as He '-"
(1 John 3:2.) We read: ."Every rye
shall soo Him": but this, to le In har
mony with the other Scriptures, n:ut
refer to thrt eyes of understanding.
The Ilible declares that eves f hu

by error and sin. but that shortly all
the blind eyes shall N opened. Then

Parousia Presence; Epiphania Mani
Our English word coming Is used to
translate several very different Gnv";
words. One of these is Parousia.
which means presence, and Is used In I
referring to the first stage of the
Lord's Second Advent. He will !
Invisibly present. For a time none but

taking vengeance." 2 TLess. 1:7-10.
To my understanding, the Bible
teaches that Jesus has been present
in the world since 174. In other
words. His Second Advent then began.
Tho wonderful progress in the world
since then Bible students thus explain;
tho wonderful blessing upon them and
their study of the li!!e they interpret
in harmony with this. They under
stand the Bible to teach that this Pa
rousia will continue for a thoiwind
years; but that the Epiphania. or man
ifestation to the world, w ill te due lu
forty years from the time the Presence
began. For this reason they are look
ing very interestedly to see what the
present year may bring forth.
And do wo not see everywhere signs
of unrest, a time of trouble brewing?
It looks as though this year would uiark
tho beginning of the "naming fire"
of judgments upon the world which
will mark the closing of this Age and
the inauguration of the New Dispen
sation of Messiah's Kingdom, when
justice shall be laid to the line and
righteousness to the plummet." and
when the ignorance, superstition and
darkness which so long have hindered
us will begin to be broken. The tran
sition may be painful, yet It will be
blessed, marking the overthrow of
Satau'a empire and reign of sin and
death and tho inauguration of Men
siah's Kingdom and its Keign of right-
eousness aud lifo eternal. 1
Eating, Drinking, Planting and Build
Our Lord, In describing His Second
Presence, clearly Indicuted that it
would be unnoticed by the world uutil
the cataclysm of trouble should coinc.
Thus Ho likened the earlier days of
His presence to that period before the

tho impending catastrophe, continued
to build, eat and drink as usual, and
