Hon, J. H. Mickey. g-ovwrnor of Nebraska,
addreaned the WeKleyan Brotherhood at the
Reward Street Methodist church Sunday
night, and after the sermon held a short
reception. The services were held in the
Sabbath school room of the church and
every available seat was filled. The volun
teer eholr, under Mr. Daniels, was amlated
by the Kountte Memorial Mala quartet.
tJovernor Mlt'key took for his theme the
life of John Wesley and drew many strong
lxesons from his character and that of his
mother and father. II said: "If you pray
while 1 talk God will help to make this a
profitable meet Ins; . To study the Ufa of
Wesley laada one to consider what constl
tues a man. The prophets of old spoke of
the coming of Cnrlat as a stone from the
mountains which would ltd the earth. God
says He breathed Into man the breath of
life and he became a llvin soul. We are
responsible for our fellow men and we have
a large Influence for good If we but exer
cise that Influence.
"The village of Epworth Is world-renowned
because It was the birthplace of a
man, John Wesley. It Is rare. Indeed, for a
mere man to give celebrity to his birth
place. When goodness and greatness are
united in a man he is bound to be endeared
to Ills acquaintances HiMory shows that
Wesley was a marked man of his age. His
father, Samuel, came of good stock, his
father and grandfather being heroic minis
ters. It' Is the ruination of more young
men than anything else to have something
bestowed, upon them which they have not
earned.- It Is often the destruction of a
man's character to have money willed to
him. If Hyde had been raised as hit father
was he would never have helped to rob the
Equitablo, It Ts no shame to be poor. It is
far better to pessens ! at the end of your
life and to have the satisfaction that you
have earned that yourself.
"God expects you and me to be me. I
could lose my religion at a banquet table In
a minute if I could forget God. Think of
the record of John Brawn; You hear, hli
praises sung on all rides und his picture Is
hung in prominent places. He died for
defying the laws and doing what he thought
was right. ' He new slavery was wrong
and he aided the negroes In vlolutlng the
laws. He was hanged, but John Brown was
right and the law was wrong. Those who
stand for the advancement of their fellow
men will always win.
"We are 'all of times tieset with worries,
but ofllines without cause. If Rifted to the
bottom. Many unpleasant things are said
about me, but why should I stop and worry
when people say things about me which I
know are untrue?"
LORD'S WORK BY UIXBLE HANDS
The t'nknowa Seventy - Worked as
Effectively the Great Twelve.
Rev. T. I Ketman of Chicago, district
ecretary of the American Baptist Publica
tion society for the aorthwestern district,
and ten years ago pastor Cjf the First Bap
tist church of Omaha, occupied the pulpit
of Imraanuel Baptist church Sunday morn
ing. He spoke from the text Luke x:l-J, and
aid In part: ......
"The Lord sent forth two groups of dis
ciples, one of twelve and another of sev
enty. The names of twelve are known
t ths entire Christian world and have been
perpetuated in the names of churches, hos
pitals and cities. The names of the seventy
r unknown, but tbelr work was the same.
They visited the sick, and though their
'Work was humble it was the work of the
Master. When tHey returned He said to
them: "Rejoice not In what ye have done
(or My sake, but rathe that your names
hall be written In heaven.'
"We cannot all be generals. The officers
do not do the hard fighting. It Is the sol
diers of the ranks the seventy that do
what the officers command. The redemption
Cf the world must be accomplished not by
the work of the twelve, but by the seventy
who work In the Held everywhere.

her name to her busband, and should their

In this way she was able to do foi

from the little group of women who

following the advice of Mrs. Pinkbam

grand results which are produced by
her nnequaled experience and training.
No physician in the world has had
such a training, or has such an amount

treatment of all kinds of female ills,
from the simplest local irritation to

Services of a "harvest home" nature and

For the Sunday services the altars were
dressed with sheafs of wheat and other

A feature of the services at the Second

the singing of the choir soloist. MUs Irma

Certainty of the Judgment." using Paul's
addresa to the Athenians as a baste, saying:
This was a new doctrine to tbeae people

HOW THE BIBLE WAS WRITTEN
Est. Newton Vsan, Pastor of Unit
(.birch, Writes a Book.
OLD TRADITIONS MERCILESSLY ASSAILED
Aathor of the fewest Sataral History
of the Bible. Dissects Its
For several years past Rev. Newton Mann
of I'nlty church, Omaha, has devoted hlm
rolf to a series of lectures on "The History
of the Bible." These lectures he has care
fully edited and now publishes In an at
tractive volume of 381 pages. He has given
to his work the title: "The Evolution of
a Great Literature," to which he has ap
pend) u a helpful index. The book has Just
been Issued by James H. West Company,
publishers of Boston, and can be had of the
booksellers. The Importance of such a con
tribution to the serious discussion of vital
questions of belief makes the publication
one of exceeding Interest, and the further
fact that Its scholarly author has been for
so many years Identified with our own com
munity and with a leading church deserves
for the work an extended review.
At the outset Mr. Mann states his posi
tion, to treat the Bible as the surviving
relielous literature of an ancient people. He
discards entirely its divine Inspiration and
revelation and deals with the subject purely
us a scientific study. Forewarned of Mr.
Mann's attHudc. we well know that the
scientific Investigator has no reverence for
Tradition Is Discounted.
lie lays rough hands on accepted doc
trines. Whether he Scratches tho rocks of
the earth for evidence of ltx age, or surveys
the stars of the heavens to determine the
constitution of the universe, with critical
eye and with mathematical precision he
measures each step of his way. He Is more,
over a respecter of ho person, and many of
the hallowed traditions of the past crumbl"
to dust under his microscopic analysis.
The Bible, which the human race' for ages
has accepted on faith, has not escased the
burrowinir of tht. scientific mole, sntlsflqd
with nothing If not the truth. Where scien
tific Investigation is applied to the Book of
Books, it is called, tn the language of the
learned, "The Higher Criticism." During
the last half century European and Ameri
can scholars have been eager' rivals In
searching the scriptures and in applying the
rules of historical criticism.
Mr. Mann has been a close student of
them all, and ln his carefully written book
sets up no claim to originality. His pur
pose is to present for the general reader
the main conclusions of advanced scholar
ship touching the composition of the vari
ous parts of the Bible, both of the Old Rnd
New Testament, and to place In historical
relation, as near as can be done, the events
therein narrated. In this he has succeeded
admirably. The book ia both Interesting
Malilnar of Bible Is Dlaarramuied.
In a simple narrative style the story of
the making of the Bible Is told, or, as Mr.
Mann calls It, "The Natural History of the
Jewish and Christian Scriptures." In .which
Is traced step by step the evolution of a
great literature. Written In a. pleasing
manner, easily understood, the bonk never
theless keeps in sight the pointy of view of
the scientist a-id not of. the theologian.
Something of this kind has long been
needed for the general reader. .'
The work appeals to reason and confirms
the experiences of men as one knows his
tory and human life. It explains the ap
parent Inconsistencies and contradictions
found In the Bible, which have puxzled
theologians for ages. It in,. Indeed, a guide
for the perplexed. And the Bible student,
whether or not he agrees with the author,
will at least have the Scriptures from a
new point of view. Infallibility for the book
Is not claimed. Further research and In
quiry will, of course, correct errors snd
make more certain what Is now Vague or
With the Instinct of the naturalist,' the
author dissects the Bible tn as cold-blooded
a manner as a physician dissects a rabbit.
It may Jar one's nerves to be told that
David was an Inexorable barbarian and
Solomon an- eastern despot, who never
wrote a line of the Bible; that the laws of
Moses were modeled on the code of Ham
murabi, king of Babylon; that Jonah is a
dash of Action; that Esther Is a myth, and
like Daniel and many other revered stories
of the Bible, was written for a purpose by
some unknown writer centuries after the
events were supposed to have happened. In
other words, Jonah, Esther and Daniel were
works of fiction written during the trouble
some times of the Greek domination and
Maccaheean revolt for Independence, Just
as "Cncle Tom's Cabin" was a work of fic
tion written In much later times fo&.a pur
pose, aa a popular protest against slavery.
I'ses Historical Methods.
The quarrel with Mr. Mann over these
things Is to quarrel with the geologist and
with the astronomer for telling us the age
of the earth. And to find fault with him
Is to find fault with historical Investigation
which finds the Scotch or Irish gentleman
of the twentieth century to be a lineal de
scendant of the long-haird savage man
sacrificing Druids. The historical method
has been rengnlz1 as the only proper and
sensible wsy to study the development of
civilisation, whether that of Greece or of
Rome or of England, or of any other peo
ple ancient or modern: and the question
naturally suggests Itself In this age. Why
should the Scriptures sot be searched with
the same light? It cannot lessen the rever
ence for the Bible to know that it is the
work of many hands and tells of the strug
gles of man for higher Ideals and nobler
conception of life and duty to his fellows.
It rather strengthens one's respect for
humsn nature to learn how man has been
able In the course of the long centuries to
lift himself gradually above brute creation.
This process is called evolution, and evolu
tion Is denned as the growth of lower to
higher forms. It Is a law of nature. It
governs the formation of worlds, of plants,
of animals and of mind. It Is an orderly
development from the simple to the com
plex, from the crude to the refined. It Is a
law which has existed from all time, and
will exist to the end of time.
The history of the Bible read in this
way is the history of the development of
spiritual life, and the God-idea, covering
perhaps 1,500 years of growth. Mr. Mann
takes up In detail thia story, beginning
with the Jew, st first a tribal people known
as Hebrews: that la to say, the "up-stream-people,"
when they turned from the fetish
worship of many gods, with all the
horrible bloody ceremonies of primitive man
I nnd human crlflf.. t n V. wahKIa ' . i -

tribal-god, Jehovah. From the time of the
worship of Jehovah, the Hebrew came to
be known as the Jew. But Jehovah was
for s long time only one suiung other gods
worshiped by the Jewa. After a while
Jehovah alone Is worshiped and to Hlin
alone la offered the burnt sacrifices. In the
course of time the conception of God
changes with the advancing dvUUatloa of
the Jew. His God-idea grew and expanded
by contact with Egyptian. Persian, Baby
lonian, Greek and Roman civilisations.
God, ss finally conceived, la no longer s

enemies and dealing only with His favored
nation, aa pictured in the primitive times.

The Jew's final t-onceptlon of Ood. and the
Jew's Idea of the worth and dignity of

Froverbs, and In many of !he Psalms have
come down to our times and to our own
religions as the highest spiritual and phil
osophic expression conceived In the brain
w Testament Analysed.
Passing to the consideration of ihe New
Testament, there Is no such gap of silence.
says the author, between the writings of
the two testaments as one may think, had 1
he only a canonical book to go by. The
period of the Christian Era was one of
more than usual literary activity. So much
writing meant much thinking, and some of
the thinking took a forward look. The ,
real distinction between Judaism and :
Christianity Is not so much a principle as ,
a policy. The older faith never came to the j
full consciousness of any mission to convert
the world. It Is essentially the religion of
a race, and works no propaganda. And.
yet there are signs of the awakening of s I
wider thought In the later centuries of the
Jewish state. From the time of the Baby- I
Ionian exile. no yenrs before Christ, lntl- I
nations appear with growing frequency of
a belief that the whole human race will
eventually come to the service of God.
Comparing the Old Testament with the
New,, says Mr. Mann, there Is no change
In the doctrine of God, but a continuation
of the God-Idea which had grown In the
minds of men for more than l.ono years.
And this Is true because the writers of
the New Testament were nothing If not
Jews. The divine tenderness received more
emphasis. The sermon on the Mount col
lides here and there with the Pentateuch,
but not with the Proverbs. Step by step
through the centuries the growth of moral
Ideas can be traced approaching the ethics
of the New Testament.
. Jeans a Strona Personality.
As a literary production, the New Tes
tament forms itself around a personality.
There are four biographies of Jesus. In
the Old Testament there is nothing that
approaches a biography. In the New Testa
ment there Is no verse, while In the Old
Testament there Is almost as much verse
as prose. While muny of the later prophets
of the Old Testament wrote out their
words, the Prophet of Nazareth wrote
nothing. Neither' does It appear 4hat He
instructed anyone to commit His sayings
to writing. The book of Acts, which un
dertakes to narrate the doings of the
apostles, was not written, according to"
latest authority, until about 10U years after
the death of Jesus. So that the making
of the written record, as it lias come to
us, was left to a generation or more after
Jesus. The probabilities are that fragments
of writings made by contemporaries touch
ing Jesus, Ills word and His work were
In existence, and gospel writers who wrote
lu the ' name of the apostles knit these
"sayings of Jesus" together with oral tra
ditions and later legends Into a connected
story. The .voluminous writings attributed
to Paul were not Paul's ut all, but were
the work of a group of writers, some of
whom were Jews, but many probably
Greek converts, following each other, liv
ing some m years after Christ. It was
mainly thrbugh the Pauline writers and
their teachings that, the church acquired
a theology of its own, and the followers
of Christ, .then becoming known as Chris
tians, parted company with the Jewa as
a distinct religious belief. The transition
from the early simple faith, as described
by Mark, to the complex theology of Paul,
Mr. Mann calls a remarkable development.
The movement which made of the gospels
a system,, of thought and a set of dogmas,
on the acceptance ,pf which salvation la
conditioned, wa, a, .prodigious step. Paul
Intsm became the cornerstone of Christian
theology. It was tl)e gospel most readily
acceptable to' the Roman world, allying
Itself most naturally, with a pomp of cere
mony dear to the hearts of converts from
Greek and Roman paganism, and, better
than the simple original gospels could have
done, served the age ln which It flourished.
After sixteen hundred years of such In
fluence , the effort of Christianity at the
present .day, continues the writer, is to
begin anew with the teachings of Jesus.
Away from the doctrines of Paul and back
! to the religion of Christ Is the cry. But
the task of making the Christian religion
appear to be a life and not a belief Is
rendered enormously difficult by tho age
long theology derived from Paul.
('banged Conception of the Bible.
Mr. Mann's interesting study closes with
Critical studies do not change the Bible
In Itself; they change our historical ami
subjective conception of it, and not In a
way to Involve any such loss as the itlnilii
conservative is apt to think. After the
most searching studies all precious things
are there that ever were there high
thoughts about God, the clear voice of
conscience, the vision of human brother
hood, the exaltation of spiritual Hbove ma
terial values: all are there as before, how
ever accompanied by the errors and mis
conceptions of early human experience. Our
only loss Is lack of an ancient and Impos
ing delusion as to how the teachings came
there. The question Is liberty liberty to
choose and to follow the good.
As a parting word, it is safe to say, how
ever, that "The Evolution of a Great Liter
ature," will not be adopted as a textbook
for orthodox Sunday schools for some time
to come at least.
