"Comfort one another with these
words" (1 ( Theualonians \ , I 8) ) .
Ttlcn. N. Y. , Aug. 21. Pastor Rus-
ecll of Brooklyn Tnburnuclo preached
hero twice to < tny to large audiences.
\Vc report one of tils discourses from
the above text. He said In part :

gree , his deceptions have been success
ful , ( IB is witnessed by the creeds of
Christendom. Practically all of our
creedR , evcu though they assert that
God Is gracious , merciful , kind and
loving , contradict this description of
him and his Plan for humanity in
monstrous terms , fiendish in the ex
treme. The majority of creeds tell us
of his forcordinatlon and pre-arrange-
mcut of whatsoever comes to PUBS and
that this signifies that a saintly hand
ful will gain eternal life in joy in
heaven , and that the unsaintly thou-
ennds of millions of heathendom and
Christendom are equally foreordained
to spend an eternity of torture fore
known , forclntcnded ami provided tor

fort In this ? IB such a plan God-like
or Satanic ? Could any Intelligent and
good being rejoice In such a plan of
damnation or sincerely worship an Al
mighty God who would so misuse 111 *
unlimited power to distress his crea
tures , "born in sin. shapen in iniquity :
In sin did their mothers conceive them ? "
The minority of Christian creeds de
clare the same results , but that they
were not designed of God. not fore
known by him. not predestinated. They
tell us In other words that we have an
incompetent God. well-meaning , but
deficient in wisdom and in power. Is
there any comfort In this ? Would It
nssuage the grief and pain of those
suffering In eternal torment if they
, -could t ! > assured thnt their lot was
such , not because of Divine premedita
tion and design , but because of Dlvlnp
Incompetence ? Surely there Is no corn-
fort to he had from * uch a view !
After nil. we Protestants did not
make mut-h of an Improvement upon
the theory held by our forefathers
against which we protested In the six
teenth century. Surely purgatorial
tortures of a few centuries are no
worse , no less comforting than our
Protestant conceptions of an eternity
of torture for all the non-elect Our
Catholic forefathers manufactured Purgatory -
gatory without a shred of Scripture
upon which to base the theory. They
built it In their Imaginations ; they in
vented its tires and tortures. "Our
Protestant forefathers , using their Im
aginations , gave us an eternal torment

tural than Purgatory. They did in
deed use a Scriptural term sheol.
hades , hell but. overlooking the fact
that these words all signify the state
of death , the condition of the dead ,
they wrested the language and warped
it in an unscriptural manner to signify
torture. The penalty or "wage of sin
Is death. " They made of It torture
everlasting , without the slightest au
thority of Scripture except a mlsundpr-
Htood and misapplied parable , which ,
rightly understood , teaches a totally
different lesson. The false Gospel
has surely lost its power. People are
becoming too intelligent to endure It.
As a consequence attendance at
Churches Is decreasing and reverence
for God Is diminishing. Infidelity , call
ed Higher Criticism , etc. . is increasing.
The need of the hour Is the Gospel
of comfort. St. Paul declares what
we all know , namely , that "the whole
creation groaneth and travalleth In
pain together until now waiting for
the manifestation of the sons of
God. " Here we see the necessity for
this Gospel of comfort. We see also
that God has provided it and that it is
coming to the world in the end of this
Age. In the dawning of the new Age.
It will come to the world In general
ns soon ns the elect Church shall have
been selected and. by the "First Res

ing that as ye are partakers of the
sufferings , so shall ye be also of the
comfort" ( II Corinthians I. 3-7) ) .
What n wonderful statement respect
ing the Divine intentions for the com
fort of the world and the comfort of
the Church , all proceeding from "the
God of all comfort" Nothing written
in any sacred books of any people at
any time reveals such n God as the
God of the Bible n God Infinite in
Justice. Wisdom. Power and Love. It
Is he that is "working all things ac
cording to the counsel of his own good
will , " for the ultimate comfort and
salvation of as many of his creatures
as will accept his favors , after being
brought to a knowledge of the Truth
respecting them. The Church is now
comforted during this Gospel Age
( saved to the highest plane of the
heavenly nature ) and during the com
ing Age the world is to be comforted
and saved to the human nature aa
many as will. For the world this
means the glorious opportunity of the
mediatorial reign of Christ which will
constitute their time of restitution , up
lifting , resurrection to all that was lost
In Adam and redeemed by the precious
blood of Christ ( Acts Hi. 10-21) ) .
"Comfort With These Words. "
In order to appreciate the meaning
of our text we must consider the
words of the Apostle preceding it. be
ginning with the 13th verse. He de
clares. " 1 would not have you to be
Ignorant , brethren , concerning them
which are asleep , that ye sorrow not.
even a # others which have no hope. "
All Christian people agree that the
word sleep here refers to those who
died. They are not asleep in heaven ,
of course , for there all is wakefulness
and Intelligence and joy. They are
not asleep in Purgatory , of course , for.
according to our Catholic friends , sleep
there would be nn impossibility. They
are not asleep in an orthodox hell. tor.
according to the description given by
Protestants , none could sleep there.
Where , then , are those who are
"asleep" ? St. Paul says that we should
not be Ignorant concerning them.
Have we not been ignorant in the past
foolishly ignorant ? We have Ignored
the Apostle's words entirely. We have
refused to believe that any are asleep
and claim that all are nwal'e. alive a
few in heaven , the many In Purgatory
or eternal torture.
But St. Paul was right ! The entire
Bible teaches that all who die fall
asleep. Thus we learn of St. Stephen ,
the first Christian martyr , that he "fell
asleep" ( stoned to death ) . We read of
the good and bad. kings and peasants ,
falling asleep in death. We read that
King David slept with his fathers-
some of them good , some of them bad.
We read that Abraham slept with his
fathers some of them heathen. The
Bible tells us where they sleep and that
they will all be a wakened from the sleep
of death in due time in the resurrec
tion , during Messiah's reign of a thou
sand years. The Prophet declares that
"Many that sleep In the dust of the
earth shall awake , some to life ever
lasting and some to shame and lasting
contempt" ( Daniel sll. 2) ) .
Those who wIM be awakened from
the sleep of death unto resurrection of
life will be the blessed and holy , the
saintly , who will be associated with
Messiah In the Kingdom work for the
blessing and uplifting of the non-elect.
Those who will be awakened from the
sleep of death to shame and age-last
ing contempt will be the non-elect
world. Their shame will be In proportion
tion as they have enjoyed light , knowl
edge and opportunity and have failed
rightly to appreciate and use these.
They will have contempt from their
fellows. In proportion as their short
comings of the present time will be
shown up. Many highly esteemed
amongst men will be awakened to that
shame and age-lasting contempt. But
their case will not be a hopeless one.
Much of their weakness and derelic
tion were the result of Adam's trans
gression and the sinful conditions
which have resulted. Including unfa
vorable environment. God has pro
vided in Christ redemption for all from
the sins and weaknesses resulting
from Adam's disobedience and thus
the entire race of Adam Is guaranteed
an Individual trial under favorable
conditions for life everlasting or
All who will render obedience to tbp
taws and regulations of Messiah's
Kingdom will begin to rise up. up , up ,
out of their fallen , degraded condition
of sin , and be brought back to all that
was lost In Adam und redeemed at
Calvary. In proportion as they will
retrace their steps and como back into
Divine fellowship their shame will de
crease and their contempt also. Final
ly in the consummation of that age all
who will may have attained full res
toration and regeneration and free
dom from shame and contempt. The
unwilling ana tiisoiicdicnt und retici-
llous will be destroyed ! the Second
Death "twice dead , plucked up by the
" of further
roots"-wltliout hope any
resurrection or restitution.
"Comfort With These Words. " j
St. Paul urges that Christians should '
not be ignorant concerning those who
are asleep that they "sorrow not even
ns others who have no hope. " It N I
bad enough to think of millions of the '
heathen as being totally extinct , hopelessly - '
lessly dead , without any prospects of
n roKurieotlon. The same would he
true respecting our neighbors and
friends , parents and children , brothers '
and Bisters , who are not saintly , who !
are not in "Christ Jesus , " who are not
walking after the Spirit , who are not
heirs of God and joint-heirs with .lesim !
Christ our Lord. And If it would be '
a sore trial to think of them us utterly - !
ly destroyed In death and without hope
of resuscitation , resurrection , how I
much worse would It have been when , '
In our misunderstanding of God's plans. j
we thought of them as being in either |
Purgatory or eternal torture. Such a |
false conception of the Divine plans Is
even worse than to believe them with
out hope and extinct
The Apostle proceeds to point out the
basis of this hope in these words , "If
we believe that Jesus died and rose
again , even so them also which sleep
in Jesus will God bring ( from the dead )
with ( by ) him" ( I Thessalonlaus Iv , Ml.
So , then , the Apostle declares , the
resurrection hope Is the Christian hope ,
and the basis of the hope of this resur
rection is that Jesus died that he might
be man's rnnsomer that he arose from ,
the dead that he might be the great j
Deliverer of mankind , the Prophet.
Priest and King of God , and that he
might gather to himself the elect
Church , the Bride , the Lamb's Wife ,
asuls _ Joint-heir.
Christians , of course , in thinking of
the resurrection of the dead , would pri
marily , chiefly , consider their dear
ones of the household of faith ; hence
the Apostle continues his argument ,
saying , that those of the Church living
at the time of the Second Advent will
not precede or hinder those members
of the Church who have died during
the past centuries , for the dead in
Christ shall arise first shall be awak
ened first from the sleep of death.
"Them That Sleep In Jesus. "
We cannot think that the Apostle re
fers merely to the Church in this case ,
for uniformly. In speaking of the resur
rection of the dead , he refers both to
the Church and to the world , the
"resurrection of the just and of the
unjust. " So In this case he evidently
refers both to the Church and to the
world as "asleep In Jesus. " The ex
pression will be noted as different from
another one of his respecting those
who "sleep In Christ. " The latter ex
pression evidently refers to the Church
ns the glorified members of The Christ.
But in speaking of those asleep In
Jesus he evidently has reference to the
whole world of mankind. The whole
world died In Adam without having u
voice in the matter of their birth or
trial or condemnation. "Condemnation
came upon nil because of one man's
disobedience. " Likewise Justification
is to pass upon all of our race through
the precious merit of Christ's sacrifice.
The fact that he "died , the Just for the
unjust. " constitutes his death a satis-
1 faction price for the sins of the whole
I ; From this standpoint , therefore , the
I whole world not only died In Adam ,
but now sleeps or waits unconsciously
for n resurrection of the dead through
the merit of our Redeemer's sacrifice.
If we believe that Christ died for our
sins and laid the foundation thus for
his great work of blessing the world of
] mankind , Including the Church , the
first-fruits , let us believe also that
God who began his good work will not
stop until be shall have brought forth
Judgment unto victory until all the re
deemed world shall be brought to a
knowledge of the Redeemer and of the
Heavenly Father and to nn opportunity
for life everlasting through obedience.
The world died in "
Adam-"In Adam all
die. " Jesus Is the Redeemer of the
world. "Even so all in Christ shall be
made alive. "
The message has reached the Church
only , as yet. In due time It will reach
every member of the race. The Church
is already reckonedly quickened from
the dead by the holy Spirit and will
shortly be born from the dead in the
"First Resurrection. " The world ,
therefore , from the Divine standpoint
is not dead in Adam now. but merely
islcep In Jesus , waiting for the glori
ous time when , his Kingdom establish
ed , he shall call all mankind from the
prison-house of death , from the tomb ,
that each may learn to the full of the
grace of God in Christ , and have op
portunity for attaining life everlasting
These are the words in which we are
to comfort one another words of hope
respecting the resurrection of the dead ,
both the Just and the unjust words of
sympathy , words of assurance , words
that show that God is better than all
our fears ; that yet in a little while
he that shall come will establish his
Kingdom first the Church in glory
and secondly Israel and all the fam
ilies of the earth through them. Every
thing connected with the Divine mes
sage is full of hope , full of encourage
ment , full of blessing , to those In the

Back Into Old Italy.
Florence , Italy , Aug. 4. Special to
The News : We are in the good old
summer weather now and it Is real
hard on us , since we have spent so
much time in the snow in the Alps and
On leaving Trent we went into Ven
ice , that charming city built upon the
Adriatic sea , and you must remember
that In this wonderful city you hear
no sound of tramping horses or roll
ing wheels , but leisurely you see the
black gondolas plying up and down
the three hundred canals that form
the streets of this ancient capital of
the Venetian republic. Everything In
this town Is amusing. The people are
so friendly and they act like they had
known you for years. The little
streets are often two feet wide and
crooked as a coiled snake , and the
little bazaars remind one of children's
play stores. Yet in this fascinating
city far , far away from America , we
met more native people who spoke
English than we found in Berlin , Dres
den or Munich.
The most attractive thing In Venice
is to take a gondola In the evening
and go out on the Grand canal and
hear the splendid concerts given by
Venetian musicians. The stars shine ,
the naming lights glisten over the
water and the music mellow as a sum
mer dream peals from shore to shore.
Venice Is a city of factories , such as
glass , porcelain , pottery , knives and
antiquities of various kinds , yet It Is
said that one-third of .the inhabitants
of Venice are beggars , nnd I believe
that this Is true.
From Venice we went to Padua , a
city of 50,000 people , the oldest city
In the north of Italy , and its founda
tion was ascribed by Virgil to Ante-
nor. There Is an old cathedral in the
city built In 13SO , and also a thriving
university. Passing on southward
from Padua we stopped at Ferrnra ,
situated near the Po river. The main
streets are broad , well paved and
flanked with good houses and shops.
But the side streets are grass-grown
nnd dirty. The School of Painting is
noted in history , and the names of
students have held the foremost rank ,
such as Coslmo Turn , Ercole Grand ) ,
Lorenzo Costa , Dosso Dossl , and Gar-
ofalo. Then , the city has given ref
uge to such pioneers of religious lib
erty as Calvin and it was the birth
place of Savonarola , Arlosto spent
his youth here and Titian oftrn found
employment In the town. Lord Byron
also lived here , and TUBBO was Im
prisoned In the St. Anna hospital. It
was captuted by the" Austrliins In
l 4 ! > , but given up by them In I860.
Our next Important stop was Bo
logna , n place of 140.000 people and
nn Important railroad center. This Is
the capital of Emilia nnd the seat of
the university , which was founded In
the fifth century. There Is a fine na
tional art gallery In the city.
High Taxes Make Beggars.
Our next stop was nt Porrotta , a
\ I city noted for Its baths nnd mineral
springs. Here we saw 3,000 Italian
toldlers camped for the summer , and
i I may add , if Italy did not keep so
! [ many soldiers , there would not be so
1 many beggars nnd paupers , for the
taxes of this little kingdom are un
bearable by these downtrodden peo-
| i : pie , yet there is no hope ahead nnd
rte light of H better day. 1 am not
surprised that there are BO many nn-
j : archlsts developing in Italy. The re-
I strlcted measures In business are un
just and unfair. As nn example , we

hemently. .lust think of human beings
who must submit to such Indignities.
We passed on to Passe dell Abctone.

Apennlne mountains In fact , this IB

and after all It Is wonderful how the
trains wind up among these lofty
peaks. Looking below we see the

the peaks are mostly barren , with
scattered shaggy trees along the
Our next leap was to Pistola , a city
which was anciently the capital of a
little republic which was conquered
by Florence in 1351. Many line
churches and palaces now In ruins
attest the former greatness of this
capital. The manufactured articles
produced here are silk and linen goods
and pistols , Its name being derived
Irom these weapons.
Each day the charms of these old
cities grow upon us and it is won
derful how things remain the same
for one or two thousand years. Even
the agricultural tools and the manner
of life could not have been much more
primitive than that seen in many cities
today. Yet in the face of all this , the
people s'eem ' happy , and the typical
Italian generally wears a smile ,
whether dressed in rags or in broad
cloth. It seems a part of their nature
to look happy.
It was just last evening that I saw
an old woman who sells matches on
the street , and her little boy fast
asleep on a doorstep , no doubt wear
ied with the trade of a few centeslmi
for the day , they had fallen Into that
land that has few ills and troubles.
Continuing our journey southward ,
we have reached the beautiful city of
Florence. In point of art and sculp
ture masterpieces this is one of the
richest cities in the world. For ex
ample , there is In the Vecchio palace
a statue of a small boy holding a fish ,
which Is so arranged that the water
from the fountain pours out of the
fish's mouth , nnd this little statue ,
two feet high , is valued nt $2,000,000.
In fact , the Smithsonian Institute of
Washington offered this large sum for
It , but the money was refused.
The City of Florence.
Florence is a noted city because of
Its past history nnd the noblemen who
have lived here. It was the home of
Dante , Michel Angelo , Zanobl , Romola ,
Corilla , Macchivelli , Rossini , Galileo
and also Amerigo Vespucci , the Amer
ican discoverer , besides many more
who were just as illustrious as these
named. We stood upon the very spot
where the great preacher and reform
er Savonarola was burned because he
dared to reprove the Florentines of
their sins and to speak what he be
lieved to be true. After he was burned
his ashes were thrown In the Arne
river and borne away to the Medit
erranean sea to await the resurrection

self by Barone Schlllzzi with a large
lomc that cost two million francs.
Our next stop was at Pompei , the
ruined city that was destroyed com
pletely by Vesuvius in 7'J A. D. , and
the city remained buried for 1,700
years , and was discovered by Joseph
fjorelli. And even now only two-fifths
of the ruins have been excavated , al
though the work is still progressing.
In going over the old ruins we saw
the relics of many noted houses.
Among these are the Temple of Apol-
o , Fortune , Jupiter , Isis , the Greek
Forum , Comls theater , court of jus
tice , Tragic theater , houses of Rufus ,
Fnnno , Centenario Tragic poet , Sur
geon Slrico , Adonis , Apollo , Vetti and
Villa of 'Dlomede.
It is said of Pompei that it was the
miniature of the civilization of that
ge. And here within the narrow com
pass of its walls was contained , a
specimen of every gift which luxury
offered to power. In Its glittering , but
minute shops , its tiny palaces , Its
baths , Its theaters , its forums , there
was energy , yet corruption , there was
refinement , yet vice , which was be-
lield as a model of the whole empire ,
in which the heathen gods seemed to
marshal all the energies of evil and

this sinful , flourishing city was buried

Vesuvius , so that It was hidden for
many centuries , only to be discover

After a careful examination of the
ruins in this unfortunate city we took
a fast express for La Cava del Tir-
reni , a city of 23,000 people in the
midst of an elegant mountain scenery.
While In La Cava we were guests at
the grand hotel Victoria , which was
in ideal hotel. This hotel was for
merly a royal palace in the Sixteenth
century. It was built by Barone Gael-
ano Filangieri and was occupied by
liim for many years , but as he was
a military man the reverses of war
and the failure of his expeditions re
sulted In the loss of his property , and
at last he died a discouraged and dis
appointed man. After his death the
palace passed through many hands
until at last it was turned into a ho
It is a large four-story marble house
with corridors , reception rooms , par
lors , : reading rooms and private dinIng -
Ing rooms. It is not only mammoth ,
but It is also beautiful. There are
three large fruit nnd flower gardens
connected with it , so that you see
lemons , oranges , figs , pears , peaches ,
and other fruits , and even flowers , nil
growing in the same garden.
Thus It Is most Interesting , attrac
tive nnd comfortable. The house Is
kept by Mr. nnd Mrs. R. Aplcella. He
Is nn Italian , and she is a Swiss wo
man.More than this Mr. Aplcella is n
fiend on relics , and thus has room af
ter room , and case after case , full of
pictures , coins , dishes , statues and
swords , In fact , almost everything , so
that he has n most enjoyable museum.

Here we were treated like real
kings and queens , and we were made

I hired five carriages for n coaching
trip of fifty miles to Sorrento. This
Is considered the famous Italian drive.
Passing up and down the mountains
you see all the possible beauty of
the terraced orange and lemon gar
dens , and thousands of vineyards.
About half way to Sorrento we came
to Arnold , a very ancient town , and ,
at one time It was so powerful as to
offer resistance to the Norman rulers
of Naples , and to the Plsans. And at
that time had 00,000 Inhabitants , and
also possessed one of the finest navies
in the world , It seems that the downfall -
