God answers the question of our text ,
TVhnt IH mntiT" He declares "Thou
nntleat him ( In hlH Edenlo perfection ) n
little lower than the angels Thou
rownedst him with Klory and honor ( the
dignity and power of the perfect Adam )
Thou didst set him over the worts of
thine hands ( an enrthlv being , he was at
the head of all earthly creatures the
King of earth ) , o\er the beasts of the
field , the fowl of heaven , the fish of the
afeo thou hast put all things under his
feet" ( with kingly power clearly outlined
and his subjects nnmcd ) . Evidently man
had a mental power for the control of
the lower creation aside from phjslcnl
force , I\B Intimated In hln primary deal
Ings with them nnd gh Inn them their
names ( Hebrews II , 6-E We hnve known
men possessed of wonderful magnetic
power horsi-tralncrs , such ns Rnrej , nnd

no more sighing no more crying and no
more d > Ing because nil the former things
of sin nnd denth ehnll hnve passed
way , because the great King , Messiah ,
the Redeemer of mankind , shall deliver
Mm from the power of sin nnd death
and the tomb Well did he state his mis *

It adapted to his welfare when he nnd It
ehnll both be In perfection Of the earth
It Is written thnt "God made It not In

The "earth abldeth foreer" "seed time
nnd harvest cold nnd heat , summer nnd 1
winter enduilng as long ns them are sun

atool nnd he will make the place of his

shortly bo turned over to the great Re
deemer , who will "take his grent power
and reign " He w 111 put down all ene
mies and lift up mankind , redeemed by
his sacrifice gl\lng an opportunity of
everlasting life to all , and then , as St
Paul declare * after having accomplished
the restitution work for man nnd for the
earth , the Redeemer-King will turn over
the government of the world to God even
the Father ( I Corinthians 15. H )
Our grent mlstnke In the past has been
In not studying the Bible correctly Hence
we failed to see that only an elect "little
flock" Is Invited to a heavenly reward for
following the Savior In the narrow way of
eelf-sacrlflce and that then the earthly
reward will lie bestowed during Messiah's
reign upon ult the willing nnd obedient
and that thus will be accomplished the
original Divine intention of having an
forth full of people amongst whom God's
will shall be done ai In heaven
At some future time we may take up
"What Is the eoul of man ? " For the
present let us briefly say that the word ,
oul finds Its s\non > m In the word being
and that when God had created man of
the dust of the earth he was a man only
in form , he was not a soul cr telns. ha
had no thought or sentient being When
God started Adam's phjslcn ) c > stem bv
blowing Into his nostrils the breath of
lives ( as the Hebrew Scriptures state It ) ,
then Adam , n.u pnrt of him , but the
whole of hltn. became a living soul living

was on trial , that was sentenced , nor waa

The workings of this tank are very
interesting. The tank itself holds for
ty gallons of fiie fighting fluid. Each
[ gallon of this is equal to forty gallons
of water in flie extinguishing quality
The tank has been placed directly
underneath the drivel's seat. To this
tank is attached 150 feet of small hose
which is carried in a large iron bas
ket elevated high enough above the
| box of the wagon to allow the storage
of 700 feet of regular fire hose. Ont
another side of the wagon is a contrivance -

The "average lire lasts about forty

Little Grave to Be Marked.
Neligh , Neb. , Jan. 2C. Editor News'
In today's isrue of The News we note
that a News leader of Stuait would
stait fund for memorial to little Kaurt
This is in itself a veiy commend
able spiiit and shows how the hearts
of a reading public go out in sympa
thy to the fate of this innocent child.
Sentiment and pity for the little one
can not of course undo what lias been
done , but it can maik the lostlng
place of the little martyr.
In full sympathy with jour Stnait
leader and others of your valued pa
per , we beg to ask that they foiogo
public subsetiption and we will place
at the giave of little Kauit a respect
able monument without cost to any
body but ourselves.
If our offer meets with approval
'please send necessaiy dates to in
'sciibe on monument and we will se-
lect a suitable stone from our stock
and set as soon as weather will per
mit. Yours truly ,
The Neligh Marble and Granite
Works , by F. G. Auiinger , treasuier
and general manager.
