will immensely help business.

On Borrowintr Money.
"When one goes to tho hank," wel
are told, "he obligates himself to the
bank. It may be only by a slip of
paper for payment of somo dollars of
money, but there is danger it will not
end there." The inference is that
when one borrows money ho assumes
an obligation more than to repay the
principal and interest, which Is
doubtless often the case, but, assum
ing tho necessity of borrowing, it Is
doubtful It the transaction ordinarily
creates as much obligation to a bank
as it docs to some accommodating
friend. For a bank the. loaning of
money constitutes its regular line ot
busluess. It buys and sells credits
and Is supposed to loan on purely
commercial considerations, it a per
son, however, borrows from friends
or relatives, the loan is always re
garded aa a persona) favor calling for
favors In return In addition to repay?
Moral: If you must borrow
money, and in doing so want to Incur
the least possible "obligation," bor
row from the bank. '

Indictment Cfcarsrea .No Offense.
QLKNWOOD, la., July 3.-To the
Editor of The Bee; In the recent dis
cussion of religious themes an Indict
ment Is sought to be returned against tho
Creator. The crime charged Is In refer
ence to those children who were de
voured by bears on account of mocking
thS prophet ElUha. Under all the clr
cumstancea It falls to state an offense.
In the first place He gave the life of
those children and had the perfect and
unquestionable right to summon It to
Himself at any time. In the second place
the children were the gainers thereby,
which Is always true when any child. In
accordance with Ills will, leaves this
world with Its untold burden of sin and
fiaip and sorrow, surely awaiting them
t they remain. Of still greater Impor
tance, however, the necessity existed that
the people, strangers to Ood and blind
to Ills law and purpose, must first of all
learn reverence and respeot for HIS word
and 'His chosen representative. If they
should reach the condition whereby His
life and blessing might be Imparted to
-them. The gifts of God, In their very
nature, are so precious that they can
only 1 given tp them who through those
fundamental conditions of mind and
heart are thereby fitted to receive and
retain and properly make use thereof.
The mantle ot Elijah hod shortly be
fore fallen upon Ellspa, and w,th it tho
power ot that great hero, lisha had
just healtd the bitter waters ot Jericho,
after which those children mocked hlra,
When the hears came forth from the
woqds and devoured them.
Only as God's word end authority are
established In the earth can men fiver
be saved from sjn. The same rule which
gives summer and winter and Causes tho
sun to rise at a sbre and certain Urns
each day must prevail in resedt to the
higher realms ot life and duty. Ills
Immutability Is the hope ofthe whot
wjrld. In either the physical or the
spiritual. WJthout that qualltr chaos
would prevail In everything Our hop
for material food, as well as for the life
to Come Is based alone on Ills unfailing
pvery ohlld born since the sin of
Adam his begun to die at the moment
of birth. With thkt condition It had not
nearly so much ot responsibility as thpe
children in tho cose' of Elisha. But no
One will question that death is a part of
the heritage of each and of ail.
At that trne and under the conditions
then prevailing It was necessary that
the lesson thereby conveyed should be
even. It is equally of as much Irppor
nce to us if we shall see It aright Un
belief has caused all the suffering of the
ages. If even children might In inpoceuce
mock Ood to His face In the person of
His chosen prophet It would furnish a
possible resemblance . to on excuse for
men to sayt "I saw those children were
spared and that Qod's laws are not
always immutable, and, I know I will
not die air a result ot just one little sin
my favorite weakness." The world must
be awakened from idolatry then almost
universal, and It was not fitted for the
full revelation of God which later came
in tne love which His son manifested.
To prepare for Him It was necessary to
make them know that His word nfeans
business. The particular situation could
be met in no other way and close our
Hps to the possibility of Ills appearing
to break IBs word concerning transgres
sions.. Through unbelief came death, for It was
thus the temper prevailed by His, "tbau
halt not. surely die," as. against the
positive statement of Ood that sin would
bring that result We need to heed the
lesson today and learn that His every
word Is everlasting. Those children
helped to convey that warning. Ood
judges with equaUty and their case Is In
sare hands. I repeat again that no of
fense was made out-against Ood in th
lridlctment INTERESTED READER.
