A Nwsriapcr That filvcs The News Fifty-two Weeks E.tdi Year For Sl.ttO.
Has a Birthday
'l'hc following article taken front the
Mciivoi News. Wednesday, July "'-).
was sent by Dr. MorAUvlllo, who is tit
present stopping in Denver, to Col. A.
B. Wiggins, of this city Scout Wig
gins, about whom the article is written
is an uncle of Col. Wiggins, and was
for 15 years a peace olllcor In tho post
ofllee building in Denver, and is at
the present time drawing a pension:
"Old Scout Wiggins" tho iBSt of the
forty-six fatuous Indian fighters who
crossed tho great American desert in
1937, yesterday celebrated his nine
tleth birthday by receiving uIr old
time f i lends from his bed at 3110
Larimer street, by eating throe hearty
meals, tiot to mention a slice of his
own pink and white frosted birthday
cake, and by living again those stir
ring days of his youth.
But "Old Scout Wiggins" waits for
death for that death he faced a thous
and times in the history making days
of tho early West. The fever of a
burned out spirit of adventure dully
lit in his blue eyes yesterday as he
greeted old friends, talked over old
times and revived great memories of a
great past. Tho scout's room was
bright with myriad blooms the gifts
of his friends.
"Scout" Oliver 1. Wiggins' pet
hobby is talking. He loves It. With
his thin hands nervously fingering the
bed spread, and in a feeble voice, ho
told yesterday of how he ran away as
a boy of 13 with the party of remits
who blazed the Santa Fe trial; of the
hardships endured; the porils faced lu
Iudian attacks.
"Hut the happiest day In my life,"
said thcaged scout, the companion for
twelve years of Kit Carson, "was the
day I went back to Canada to claim
my bride, the little girl I met while
hunting in the woods of Canada when
1 was 15. I was 22 when I married.
Love is what counts in life love and
"My wife and I lived together fifty
one years with never a cross word.
We understood each other- But she
died twenty years ago," he added
"It's intemperance, it's whisky,
smoking, extravagance and a craze for
gaiety outside the home that makes
for all these divorces nowadays," said
"Scout Wiggins wisely. "Then, now a
days, the women don't know how to
do nothlu' but dress up and go down
town to bo looked at, Thoy can't
cook, or sew, or homemake or any
thing, and their chief object in life
seonis to bo to display their anatomy.
Yes, life is much worse than It used to
bo. Before mp wife died I had never
heard of a divorce."
As he talked his voice grew feebler
and choked. He lay back on his bed,
exhausted. His niece, Mrs. Bertha
Styles, who has nursed the aged scout
through three attacks of pneumonia
and one of paralysis, bent over him
tenderly and stroked the grizzled face.
He had almost reached the end of the
trial he knew it and was unafraid.
The Chief is also in receipt of 'the
Denver Post under date of Sunday,
Juno 10', as well ns n copy of the
Denver Field and Farm, both of which
contain articles concerning the "Old
Scout" but both articles arc too long

Rev .1 J. itayne pastor of the Con
gregational church had chargo of the
service and pleached the sermon.
Rev. Wagoner of the Iticthern church
read the Scripture and offered a very
helpful prayer. Mr. Albright assisted
by the huge chorus choir led tho con
gregation in the opening song service.
Tho evening was perfect and thu large
uongregiitioii puid.thu most profound
attention to the sermon which was up
on the subJHct: "The Measure of a
Full Giown Man". Mr. Ihiyno spoke
lu part as follows:
Text. Epheslans 4.13 'Till we all
come iu the unity of tho faith, and of
the knowledge of the Sou of (Jod, un
to a perfect man, unto the measure of
the stature of the fulness of Christ".
Evorv man is a hero worshiper. One
man's hoio is the man of great physic
al beauty and strength. Another pays
his adoration to the ono of great In
tellectual ability while a third has for
his ideal the man of great physical
power. Most men iu their youth wor
ship the man of mighty brawn. As
they prow older brain becomes more
Important to them than brawn. As
they develop still fuitlier benevolence
becomes the most Important of them
all. Brawn, brain aud benevolence,
these are the standards by which wo
measure men. The Ineompletness of
tho worlds great men lies in this: One
man is strong physically but Is weak
mentally. Another man has a gteat
head but not a great heart. Another
man has a great head but not a great
heart. Another mau lias a powerful
spirit but it is enclosed iu u weak
sickly body. Only one man ever lived
who readied the full measure of the
perfect nun. Jesus was a perfect
man physically, mentally and spirit
ually. He is the crown of the race,
the perfect pattern of manhood. a
First then, I make bold to say that
Jesus is our pcrfeet example physical
ly. Wherever he weut he attracted at
tention because of his physical berfuty.
As a boy he had played with the other
children In the streets of Nazareth.
Asa young man he had spent nights
togther with his cousins on the sea.
He knew how to work. IIu took time
to rest lie loved tho things of nature,
the birdb of tho air, the llowers of the
Held, tho sower and the reaper, tlio
sou-shore and the mountain side. His
blood was led and rich and hot. He
was always strong, always calm, al
ways courageous. He Is tho supieine
example of u perfect man fiom the
physical standpoint. The time has
come whon it ought to bo considered u
part of our religion to bo strong and
well. When our young uieu and
women will consider it an honor tij
take tho Christ as their hero in the
realm of the physical and strive to
grow up toward the perfect staudard
of strength and beauty which Is found
in tlio Christ.
The second measure of u perfect
man is the intellectual. Here again
Jesus is our pattern. Jesus was a
thinker and he taught men ' to think.
Where shall the thinking man go for
an answer to tho great problems of
life but to Jesus. Who is God'.' Who
am I? What lies bcylid the grave?
How shall a man bo just before his
maker'.' There are the'grcat questions
that throb through all history. They
are the questions that were usked by
tlio first great thinkers away back at
the dawn of history aud will be asked
till that day whan the stars shall go
out like sparks aud the earth shall melt
with fervont heat. 1 go to tho great
thinkers of tho nations of earth. 1
hear the dropping of their tears hut
they give me no answer that will
satisfy the longlug of my heart. Where
shall I go but to the Great Master
mind of the oges? And when I go to
Him I Hue that he knows. God ts'your

to yours. There is a home beyond
full of mauy mansions where the sous
and daughters of God shaft live after
earth's pilgrimage is passed. Today
as iu no other period of thu worlds
history, the great intellectual lights
of earth are crowning JeTus Lord of
all. The statesman, the scientist, aud
the social worker, the philosopher,
the poet and the preacher, all turn to
Jesus for light on the great intellectual
problems of the present age.
The third measure of a man is the
Spiritual. Aud what do we mean by
the spiritual? Iu Revolution we are
given a picture of a perfect Spiritual
man: 'And 1 saw a great multitude
standing befoic the throne, clothed iu
white robes, with palms in their hands
singing. Tho white robe, tho symbol
of purity. Tho palm the symbol of
victory, the song the symbol of har
mony. These are tho three elements
of tho spiritual life, Jc&us lifu was
pure, vLtoilous, harmonious. How
do we moasurc up to Ills stature'.' Do
we wear the white robe. The white
Imagination, the white thought, the
white act? Do we llvo tho life of vic
tor? Have we eonquored ourselves'.'
Our InvlronmentV Do wc llvo the
sougful life, free from discord because
iu complete harmony with God aud
Uis laws?
I cannot help but believe that all
men either consciously or unconscious,
ly ure strlviug toward a fuller and
more perfect life. Hut the trouble is
that some men are seeking in the
wrong way aud in thu wrong place.
Jesus stands lu tho center of history
and says to all men: 'I am the life'.
I camo that ye might have life and
have it more itbuudcutly'. Aud when
the modern man goes to Jesus and
asks him how ho can have the full
life, the whole life the wholesome life,
I seem to hear Jesus answer: 'It Is
very simple. You can grow toward
my perfect life, physically, mentally
aud spiritually by simple transplant
ing my life into your life. Thero Is
nothing magical about becoming a
Christian: The Christian U tho man
that is putting into his life the vital,
characteristics of the life of Jesus,
making the life of Christ his life, the
truth of Christ his truth, the servico
of Christ his service, the venture of
Christ his venture,

ever follow Him aud fall bf (uluessof
life? Did any ono ever turn away

Oh, men and women. The Christ of
the Ages Is the Christ of modern life.
Do you want lite? Do you want to be

somo? Take Jesus as , your Ideal.
