Recovered from a sickness of any kind,
lie must kill a Molumedan. If he is a
braver man he will be a better devil
worshiper if he kills himself afterwards.
In shaking of the following, his satanic
majesty, I have used the jrsonal pro
noun of the masculine gender because in
Persia the women are not supposed to
have a soul, unless they are successful
in stealing one from a devil worshiper
when he is praying. In which caso the
man loses his soul and the benefit of his
prayers. This is done by bimply tjuch
lug a niin while he js at his devotions.
The devil worshipers meet once a day
jn a little kind of a knoll, where they
...in i i !1 ,t i rf.-r inn !irl in n.
place in the open air set apart for this
particular purpose. They kneel around
(jO the ground so as to form a circle each
man wjUi his gun by his side and if at
any time while praying they should bee
a woman approaching the one who sees
her 11 rt , rises and takes his gun and
shoots her, and then kneels down and
goes on with his prayers. In thiscounrt y
it is different, the women are treated
They are supposed to have as much
soul to save as men and in all religions
and in every thing in their field sae
that of politic s the doors standing open
to her as well an the men. Yet this
Persian gentleaien who understands all
the doings of t:i3 devil worshipers in his
own country, says we have devil worsh
ipers here only we dont call them that.
Saturday night July 17th demonstrated
this fact with out any further argua-
In foriegn countries where the people
worship any one but our God the people
are heathens. Here the people worship
the same way and are called christians.
There is some difference between the
devil worshiper here and tliosa of Persi.
In Persia the devil worshipers publicly
proclaim their allegiance to thei rsatan
ic host aal are proui to own his lead
ership. Here the people publicly denounce the
ownership of such a leader, and con
demn his works as infernal and openly
follow in his wake while proclaiming
their love to Christ and confessing him
to be their one example. These people
surely are not seeking the one way, "the
right way, ilie only way" to serve God,
and serve him right. But they have
found one way and the true way to
serve the devil and serve him well.
From our county paper we learn that a
saloon is soon to be opened here in U w.i.
His satanic m.ijjsty in the s'lap of a .-a-loon
keeper is coming from Crawford to
settle in our midst. If he does ha will
furnish an excellent opportunity for the
people once more to take lessous in
doing the works of the evil one and
most especially for the little children
whose tender minds are more impress
ionable aiid easy moulded, will he furnish
an ample opportunity to becoma
thoroughly grafted in the devil's work,
and the instruction they will receive at
his hands are likely to 1m more lasting
then any they shall receive at home, in
the public school or in the Sunday school
or church. Anil they will perhaps Iw
prouder of his leadership than are chris
tian people of this present generation.
They will have the best chance of their
life to learn the one way the only way
and the rtif to serve the false prophet
to Die best of their ability.
We cannot serve God and mammon.
We must serve one or the other. To
serve God we must do his will and fol
low in the path he has made for our
guidance. But the only one path and
that a narrow one, hot it grows brighter
and brighter the longer we follow it. We
follow mammon and the path is broad
and bright at the commencing but it
grows darker and darker the longer we
follow and its end is darkness. Which
way will you choose? There is one right
way that leads to a perfect day. There
is one wrong way that leads to death.
