Truth, various false theories have
sprung up and found acceptance in the
world. One of these Is that God does
not love the world and has never pur
posed its salvation: hut that, on the
contrary. He has predestinated all ex
cept the saints to suffer eternal tor
ture. because Ue wished to have it so
Another of these false theories is
that whilst G'd wished to save the
world. He is unable to do so. because
handieap;ed by human self-will and
by Satan's aggressiveness. This tiie
ory declares that God loves the world,
ineltnling the heathen millions; that
He longs to have the Gospel taken to
them, but cannot do so except through
human agency; and that He is baffled
and disappointed lecause those who
profess to be His people fail to raise
To rational minds these theories are
no longer satisfactory; hence many are
turned to infidelity. Hut leaving these
errors of the Dart Ages and going
back to -he Scriptures, we tind their
teachings consistent: namely, that as

Thanks Through Tears.
Let us not overlook the fact that our
text indicates that we are to give
thanks for our sorrows, our trials, our
disappointments, as well as for our
joys and our pleasures; f- the word
everything includes all tilings. Nr is
this the only Scripture to this effect.
The Apostle elsewhere Urges the mem
hers of Christ to reioice in tribulation
-nt because tribulation is a joy-pro
dueer. but because tribulation works
out additional patience, and patience
brings additional experience, which in
turn brings larger hope, until we are
not ashamed of our tribulations, be
cause thereby the love of God is shed
abroad in our hearts. Until. M; S:.".ri.
The basis of all rejoicing as respects
both the future and the present is
faith: First, that there is a God: sec
ond, that He has a noble character;
third, that His Wisdom. Justice. Love
and Power are perfect and are thor
oughly coordinated; fourth, that all
those attributes are enlisted in the sal
vation of the world: fifth, that this sal
vath'ti began to be worked out by our
Lord at His First Advent; sixth that
it is still working out in the selection
of His Church; seventh, that shortly
it will begin to take practical shape
in the establishment of Christ's Mi!
lennial Kingdom; eighth, that through
this Kingdom a blessing shall exteml
to c very creature of our race.
Then let every man to the extent of
his enlightenment appreciate and con
fess the Almighty God and give thanks
unto His name; for He is good, nun
His mercy endureth forever. Let those
who have tasted of His grace go on.
that they may grow in grace, in knowi
edge, m faith and in character-like
ness to our God Let His saints, w ho
are addressed in our text, more and
nmre appreciate their wonderful priv
ilege, their high calling of God in
Christ Jesus to tie heirs of God and
joint-heirs with Jesus Christ our Lord.

It Really Does Relieve Rheumatism.
Everybody who is afflicted with
Rheumatism in any form should by
all means keep a bottle of Sloan's
Liniment on hand. The minute jou
feel pain or soreness in a joint or
muscle, bathe it with Sloan's Lini
ment. Do not rub it. Sloan's pene
trates almost immediately right to
the seat of pain, relieving the hot,
tender, swoolen feeling and making
the part easy and comfortable. Get
a bottle of Sloan's Liniment for 23
cents of any druggist and have it in
the house against colds, sore and
swollen joints, rheumatism, neuralgia,
sciatica and like ailments. Your
money back if not satisfied, but it
does give almost instant relief.

SUED FOR 85,250 DAMAGES
From Saturdays Dally.
It is surely hard to tell when two
moving vehicles collide who is respon
sible for the accident. Suit has been
filed against E. T. Comer, of this
place, by a man from Lincoln, alleg
ing that defendant was responsible
for an accident in which his motor
cycle was sma.-.hed up and in which he
claims he was injured. Mr. Comer is
a careful driver and feels that he was
in no way responsible for the ac
cident. The following is from the
Edward M. Havens has petitioned
the district court to enter judgment
in his favor and against Eugene T.
Comer in the sum of Js.i.2o0, the claim
growing out of a mixup between
plaintiff's motorcycle and defendant's
automobile at the corner of Eleventh
end M streets on August 17, last. Ha
vens declares that it was all the fault
cf Comer, who was at the time violat
ing the road laws.
It is alleged by the plaintiff that he
was going south on the west side of
Eleventh street, driving at a very
moderate rate of speed and keeping a
lookout for other vehicles. Comer was
also going south, but was on the east
side of the street and was going at an
unlawful rate of speed. At the inter
sev .ion of Eleventh and M streets
Comer turned west on the wrong side
of the street, failing to indicate that
he was going to turn and sounding
The automobile struck plaintiff's
motorcycle, completely demolishing it
and throwing the rider violently to
the pavement. Havens declared that
he was severely and permanently in
jured and was compelled to expend
:.0 for medical services. The motor
cycle was valued at ?2u0.
The case has been set for hearing
on iuesclav ot next week. LlmwooJ

SPLENDID ROADS IN THE
VICINITY OF MURRAY, A
CREDIT TO THE OVERSEER
The roads in the vicinity of Murray
are among the best in this section of
the county, and a great deal of the
credti for the excellent manner in
which the roads have been maintained
may be ascribed to the efforts of Ben
Beckman, the road overseer, who re
tires this year after nineteen years of
service to the people of West Rock
Bluff. Mr. Beckman has just finished
up cutting down the high hanks along
the roadway to the Missouri Pacific
right-of-way into Murray and has
thereby added greatly to the value of
the road in every way and makes it
much safer for travel. There are few
road supervisors whose going ha-!
caused as much regret, and his splen
did conduct of the office will be a good
example to his successor.
