olden Textt A Moses Lifted Up the
Serpent In the Wilderness, Even So
Mast the Son of Man Be Lifted Up"
John 3:14.
The lesson for to
day Includes Num
bers 16. 17,' 20 and
21 : 1-9 and Deu
teronomyl : 46; 2 : 1;
8 : 1-5 The pun
ishment by the ser
pents occurred In
September, 1452 B.
C. (Usher), thirty
nine years after the
exodus. The ser
pents attacked the people in the south
ern part of the Valley of Arabah, which
-extends from the Dead Sea to the
head of the Gulf of Akabah, otherwise
known as the eastern branch of the Red
Sea. In our last lesson we left the Is
raelites at Kadesh Barnea, within forty
miles of Beersheba, the first large place
In Southern Palestine. Here they re
mained thirty-eight years, the long
time of Deuteronomy 1-46. They ar
rived at Kadesh about a year and three
months after the exodus, and left it nine
months before taking Canaan. During
these years Kadesh was their place of
rendezvous. From time to time they
changed their localities, but never gave
up hope cf the fulfillment of God's prom
ise. At this time they numbered 2,000,
000 souls and their camp extended over
a large territory about Kadesh. Like the
Bedouins of all ages, the different tribes
kept shifting about within caravan
travel of Kadesh. Some of the wander
ings are given in Numbers 33: 19-36. ex
tending as far south as Ezion Geber on
the eastern arm of the Red Sea (1 Kings
9: 26.)
The chief events of this epoch are as
follows: 1. Korah's rebellion. 2. The
budding of Aaron's rod (proving him a
divinely chosen high priest). 3. The
death of Miriam (sister of Moses). 4.
Water from the rock at Meribah and the
sin of Moses that kept him from enter
ing the promised land (20:2-13). 5. The
Jeath of Aaron at Mount Hor (20:22-29).
The reason for the long delay is given
by Moses in Deuteronomy 8:12.
II. 4. "And they (Numbers 20:22; 23:41)
journeyed from Mount Hor by the way
of the Red Sea (to the Red Sea) to com
pass the land of Edom (Judges 11:1S);
and the soul of the people was much
discouraged on account of the way." At
last they lost faith in God.
5. "And the people spake against God
(Psalms 7S-19), and against Moses (Ex.
16:3; 17:3), Wherefore have ye brought us
up out of Egypt to die in the Wilder
ness? For there Is no bread, neither is
there any water, and our soul (Numbers
11:6) loatheth this light bread."
6. "And (1 Cor. 10:9) the Lord sent
J O X C y , , m

the inflammatory nature of their bites)
among the people, and they bit the peo
ple; and much people of Israel died."
7. "Therefore (Psalms 78:34) they came
to Moses, and said, 'We have sinned, for
we have spoken against the Lord, and
against thee; pray unto the Lord (Ex.
8:8-28), that he may take the serpents
away from us.' And Moses prayed for
the people."
8. "And the Lord said unto Moses,
'Make thee a fiery serpent of brass (of
copper or bronze): put it upon a pole
(set It upon a standard); and
It came to pass; and it shall come to
pass, that every one that is bitten, when
he (seeth It) looketh upon it, shall live."
.j.nus uoa was 10 restore ineir iaitn.
9. "And (2 Kings 18:4) Moses made a
:6erpent of brass, and put it upon a pole;
:and it came to pass, that if a serpent
had bitten any man, when he beheld
(looked unto) the serpent of brass, he
lived." And thus by means of a miracle
the faith of the Israelites was again re
stored. Had the means of cure been a
mere natural remedy (so called) the peo
ple would have believed In it and not in,
G-od. The serpent Is now often used as
a symbol of Christian faith.
Water and food was also supplied by
aid of miracles.
It is doubtful If the serpents spoken
of as poisonous were real serpents.
Lange says: "The true, peculiar, per
nicious, fiery serpent were their mur
muring disposition and complaints
against Jehovah." Sin is like a fiery
serpent, often beautiful In appearance
and secret in its approach. But the ef
fects are pains that only fire can ex
press. It Infects the whole system. It In
flames every evil passion with Its venom.
It is Incurable by man alone. If per

and spiritual. Compare the old serpent,

By means of part tions two rooms

than a room in Middleton in which a
fatal case of poisoning from water-gas
actually occurred. Three dogs, two
cat and two rabb'ts, all apparently
healthy and strong, were placed in the

The professors ai-o experimented on
themselves to a slight extent in a sim

We conclude that the eflect will be
the same, in kind, on human beings
as on the animals experimented with
that is, as regards the gas investiga
tion. We have no painful vivisections
here unless some important investiga
tion is to be made. Our vivisections
are made while the animals are under
the influence of anesthetics chloro

animals used for the purpose are
mostly frogs, rarely dogs, cats, rab
bits, guinea pigs and pigeons, called
higher animals. Nearly every day we
have painless vivisection for teaching

Western college .-et at work to studv
the physiology of the heart. He took

hearts, and studied their movements.
In these lower animals the heart does
not cease beating for hours, and in
soue cases, uavs alter the head is
.-evered, but in case of all animals
h'gher than iept:les the heart stops
almost immediately on decapitation.
In many cases of vivisection the spinal
cord is also destroyed, which prevents
any nerve leel ng. No painful experi
ment should be made to enforce on
students facts alreadv known. I should
not stop at pain of lower animals,
that is, reptiles, etc., if by vivisection
or dissection human lives can be saved
or human suffering n l eved. or if there
is a reasonable hope of do:ng it. 1
think there is great misunderstanding
in regard to painful and painless vivi
e.ton. The latter is as painless as
dissection after death. Dogs and rab
bits are used more espec:ally to leirn

Champions of Gold Standard Accused of
Using False Averages How Mathe
matical Accuracy Requires Computa
tion to n Made.
D. O. Mason in Chicago Dally Record:
In part the issue between those who
favor the free coinage of silver, of bi
metallism, and those who oppose such
coinage is a question which Involves
the extent of the fall of prices since
the year 1873. The silverltes aver that
the decline in the prices of commodities
in general exhibits a signal proportion
to the decline in the price of silver bul
lion, the downward movement of the
latter being responsible for the down
ward movement of the former. To sup
port this view various evidences are
set forth; for instance, that silver bul
lion has had during its shrinkage of
valuation in the world's markets a cer
tain steadiness of purchasing power in
exchange for staple articles, while the
purchasing power of gold has corre
spondingly advanced. This position is
rejected by the goldites, who resort to
elaborate statistical tables of prices for
proof that the contention of their op
ponents is untrue, and seem to show by
the quoted figures, that the fall of prices
from 1SG0 to 1S92, covering 232 different
commodities, was only about 8 per cent
on the average, so that the decline from
1873 was from a heavy advance in
prices above what they were in 1860,
and not from a legitimate starting
Now there is an Insuperable objection
to the use of these tabulations of aver
age prices. They are not actual prices,
but only theoretic prices, and they bear
the same sort of relation to actual
prices which sophistry bears to legiti
mate argument. In brief, they are
prices obtained by violating a rule of
arithmetic, yet they are paraded as
having all the faculties and Inclinations
of mathematical accuracy and certainty,
while really Involving an Increase of
blunder at every advancing step of
their spurious computation or of their
complication with other prices. If, for
Example, a fundamental error of arith
metical calculation is committed in
obtaining the average price of any in
dividual commodity for one day, how
much augmented and aggravated must
the error become when the calculation
is extended over a week, a month, or a
year, and how utterly unreliable, and
even worthless, must such average
price become when wrought Into com
bination with 231 other average prices,
each arrived at through the same
vicious and misleading process directly
violating arithmetical requirements.
In order to compute an average price
arithmetic demands the division of ag
gregate cost by aggregate quantity; or,
to express the rule differently, there
must be obtained first of all the total
of the quantities sold of any commodity,
or of an assortment of commodities,
sum of values realized at the various
prices, whereupon the sum is to be di
vided by the total, and the quotient
is the average price. But within the
last half century there has come into
vogue a bastard system of calculating
average prices a method which prob
ably had its origin in the frequent im
possibility of procuring the quantltes
and the values indispensable to arith
metical accuracy. By this illegitimate
process the proper and essential data
are entirely, arbitrarily, recklessly ig
nored, and so-called average prices are
computed by adding together the dif
ferent prices and dividing by their
numbers a departure from fact and
truth which is without an atom of rea
son or justification, because it invaria
bly leads to error continually, in every
direction whither it proceeds, and ac
cumulates error upon error until a jum
ble of absurdities and inconsequential I
ties has been put in mathematical form
with the superficial appearance of un
assailable strength, yet worthless for
any purpose of argument except to
demonstrate its falsity and utter un
reliability. Let me here illustrate the wide dif
ference in result between the genuine
method and the spurious mthod of com
puting average prices: Ten barrels of
flour at $3.75 each and one barrel at
$6.50 would amount to $44; dividing
this sum by eleven, which Is the total
of quantities, we have $4 as the aver
age price. Or, on reversing the terms
of the problem, one barrel of flour at
$3.75 and ten barrels at $6.50 each
would, amout to $68.75; and, as before,
dividing by 11, we obtain $6.25 as the
average. This is the arithmetical
method the sound process; it will en
dure every test of accuracy to which It
can be subjected. But the bastard
method arrives at exactly the same an
swer in both of these problems. Ac
cording to that method the two prices
$3.75 and $6.50 are added, making
the sum of $10.25 in each case; and on
division by two, which is the number
of different prices, we get $5.126 as
tlve average price a bastard average
which is $1.12 above the fact in one
instance, and $1.12 below the fact in.
the other Instance. At the rate above
the fact the eleven barrels would have
cost $56.37an error of $12.37 a lit
tle more than 28 per cent wrong. At
the rate below the fact the eleven bar
rels would have cost precisely the same
as before, with the same amount of
error, but now too little. Save as
curiosities" of maladroit computation,
what practical use can such trash of
statistics be to anybody? To palm them
oft upon the public as genuine prices
and as staple material for argument
is seeking to obtain the people's con
victions under false pretenses.
The illustrations above given of get
ting average prices by sound rule and
by violation of sound rule are supposed
cases. Let us now apply these oppo
site methods to actual experience. Be
low are the quantity and value of flour
exported from the United States in each
fiscal year named, to which is added

of a cent being extended to three deci

Totals. 39,713,318 $291,470,987 $7.33938
These are average prices which are
genuine and reliable. They are so near
to absolute correctness that on multi
plying the grand total of 39,713,318 bar
rels by $7,33938, the general average
price, the product will be found to be
only $143.76 in excess of the fact, and a
trivial error, which might be greatly
reduced, or altogether avoided, by suf
ficiently extending the decimal places
representing the fraction of a cent in
the price.
How different, however, will be the
result of computing average price by
the method which violates arithmetical
rule. In that case the sum of the an
nual average prices is $100.37576, which,
on being divided by 13, the number of
different prices, yields an average of
$7.7212123 per barrel, or $0.3818323 in
excess of the real average. This error,
applied to the grand total of 39,713,31S
barrels, amounts to $15,163,972.41, being
a departure of a trifle over 5 per cent
from the fact. And if an error to that
extent can be committed in falsely com
muting the average price of a single
commodity, who can truthfully say that
a like error will not be committed many
scores of times in computing the aver
age prices of several hundred commo
dities? When, therefore, it is asserted
about the general average price per
year of 232 different articles, measured
in their rise or fall lr price by an index
number, that the decline between the
year I860 and 1892 was only about 8
per cent, what reliance can be safely
placed on the conclusion, and what pos
sible worth is it as evidence that the
silverltes are wrong in their conten
tion? The long array of prices sup
porting the conclusion bears on
its own face testimony to its
own unreliability. Where is to
be found the record of quantities
sold'and of values obtained therefore,
covering several hundred commodities
throughout more than thirty years, and
furnishing such a divisor and such a
dividend as would comply with arith
metical rule in ascertaining average
prices? Who can point out such a rec
ord? Nobody, for the record does not
exist and never has existed in a shape
to be available for the purpose named.
Only one resort has been open to use
the spurious and worthless method of
adding prices together and dividing by
their number.
It Is no defense of such prices to say
that they are published under the au
thority of the United States, and are
embodied in a report made by the
finance committee of the United States
senate. Arithmetical rule is not to be
nullified by the pressure of mere au
thority, no matter how high and power
ful. The government, in preparing sta
tistics for public information and use,
Is as much bound to obey the rules of
arithmetic as any private individual.
When government refuses such obed
ience, its departure from mathematical
accuracy has no more binding force,
and deserves no more respect, than the
same blunder committed by one of its
most ignorant citizens. Whoever cm
ploys these bastard prices in argument,
giving them the position and signifi
cance of general prices, serves under
the banner of error and contributes to
the exaltation of sophistry.
A still gr?ater entanglement in error
takes place when, to strengthen the
case against the friends of bimetallism,
the false average prices are reduced to
equivalent gold value; for such reduc
tion must be preceded by the ascertain
ment of the average price of gold an
unattainable end. Not even for one
day, much less for a week, a month
or a year, can the average price of gold
be obtained, simply because no record
was kept of the data essential to the
purpose from Jan. 13, 1862, until the
close of December, 1878 the period of
almost seventeen years during which
gold was at a premium. It would be
necessary to have the total quantities
of gold sold within any chosen term
and the whole sum paid for these quan
tities before the divisor and the divi
dend would be supplied, as demanded
by the arithmetical rule. In the absence
of these indispensable data, the only
substitute is the false method of adding
together the different prices of gold and
dividing by their number. That addi
tional violation of arithmetical rule
augments and complicates the blunder.
An argument built up on such an un
sound foundation is like a tree rotten
at the roots, which must be rotten in
its branches.
It is full time to call a halt in the use
of these doctored statistics of prices.
The evil grows constantly. It shows
itself on every hand. As long ago as
1863 the finance report of the United
States for that fiscal year set forth the
highest and lowest prices of a con
siderable list of staple articles, followed
by the average price obtained by the
spurious method. This list embraced
the period 1825-1863. I have an annual
report of the New York produce ex
change, in which every average price
is of the bastard sort. The late Prof.
Elliott of the treasury department pre
pared the false average prices of gold,
which were used by that bureau of
statistics to reduce the currency values
of imported merchandise to equivalent
gold value, as published in tabulations
by the bureau a mode of statement
which has led many honest minds to
erroneous conclusions. Now we have
the voluminous report of the finance
committee of the United States senate
tainted with the same violation of arith
metical rule. What has brought into
such persistent vogue a practice so In
excusable, when it is considered that
every graduate of our public schools is
taught the rule which governs the case,
and should be armed with information
to detect at once the violation of the

So-Called Disturbance Case.
A Salvation Army captain has been
arrested and sentenced to thirty days
in Jail in Denver,' Col., for "disturbing
the peace," but really for holding out
door meetings of the familiar noi3y
sort. This captain is a woman,
Blanche Cox, and she is said to be re
fined and educated, and to have of
fended no more seriously against the
peace and quiet of the good people of
Denver than Salvation Army meetings
are apt to. There may be circum
stances that afford some justification
for this performance of the Denver au

tance as though they had been guilty
of a bit of mean intolerance, of which
their city ought to be thoroughly
ashamed. The Salvation Army is a
noisy institution, and their noise is an
annoyance, and at times a nuisance.but
it can be easily borne if the spirit and
purpose behind it and the great good
accomplished by that organization be
kept in mind. Exchange.
Peasant 'ostum for Fairs.
Suitable costumes for the waitresses
at an international fair to be held in
a church would be the peasant cos
tumes of the various nations. The most
picturesque of the French peasant cos
tumes is the Normandy, which consists
of a gray woolen skirt, worn ankle
length, a black overskirt turned back,
washerwoman fashion, a black velvet
bodice with a white muslin chemisette
and short puffed sleeves. The cap
should be of the kind known as Nor
mandy. The Italian costume is a
bright- colored skirt, with a long white
lace or drawn-work apron. A Roman
silk scarf should be knotted about the
waist. A black velvet bodice and a
muslin chemisette and long very full
sleeves with a little Italian cap com
plete the costume. The Italian cap is a
long and narrow strip of linen which is
placed lengthwise over the forehead
with the corners turned back. The
Dutch peasant wears a skirt of rough
cloth with a long apron made with a
square bib, a chemisette and sleeves
similar to the French costume and a
cap of stiff white linen shaped like a
halo and worn with gold ear-rings. The
Russian costume has a long skirt, over
which Is worn a heavily-embroidered
long apron, the usual bodice, long
sleeves and a cap, cone-shaped, with a
veil hanging from the end.
A Courageous Widow.
Amos Storey was one of the early
settlers of Vermont. He plunged into
the wilderness and started to clear
land to which he was entitled by being
the first settler. One day he was killed
by the falling of a tree. His wife, who
was still in Connecticut, hearing of the
disaster, resolved to take his place and
clear the farm herself, though she had
ten small children. Years of toil, dan
ger and hardship followed, but she
actually carried out this remarkable
determination. Before the sharp edge
of her ax, acre after acre of forest gave
place to fertile field. With her own
hand the logs and bushes were burned
and fruits and crops planted and
raised. Fish were lured from their re
treats by her angling and game was
supplied by her unerring rifle. In
order to have a safe retreat from In
dians and wild beasts she dug out an
underground room with a small en
trance in a thicket, where she nightly
retreated with her children. Unassist
ed she thus supported herself and chil
dren until they were old enough to
help, and found themselves the pos
sessors of a large and valuable farm.
