Blade that nowhere In the Bible is it recorded that a woman ever went to heaven and the Holy Book never speaks of Women An gels The sex of angels is now a subject of wide discussion among the clergy and they have decided that no woman ever was or ever will be an angel I am glad the preachers have coincided with one of my assertions perhaps they will find many other things true that Ratlonaists are say- Ing and confess them Who knows 1 his clerical decision that women cannot be angels is a telling blow to good Christian sisters who are cut vating their pious shoulders to grow wings and cultivating their voices to Join the heavenly choir in the New JerusalemOf the preachers know all about angels It Is their business to manutacture them The Episcopal Tans who are galvanized Roman Catho cs are building a ten million dollar in New York to worship the bavlor In The man of sorrow wh was born In a stable and had no where to jay his head In this tempt- to be 4000 statues more or less o saints and angels The Episcopalians hi their liturgy always contritely pray Lord have mercy upon us miserable sinners and they often give evidence of this truth of their moral and spirit sill condition so these saints and an els may be necessary to rouse them from their despondency knowing thjjp elyssjow much In need of mercy tJay lscopalians were siatoM1 wiiftlAe let theft J t fX Yew t Trite trai a different thWg for they auta telling Go6 they are miserable sin aloeEe e before they make It But I did not be gin 4 write miserable sinners though It Is a fertile theme but of angels and their sex Forty lady an gels in the great cathedral at Mom ingslde Heights N Y have aroused the ire of the Episcopal clergy and they demand that the sculptor change the sex of these angels even if they have to chisel whiskers on their faces as all the angels spoken of In the Bi ble are men and there is no scriptur al warrant for women angels A ruby coifiplexloned D D asserts that beauty of countenance chastity of pose whatever that means and wings do not necessarily make an an gel Will this D D rise and tell us angeldever see one The Eplscop- preachers owe It to an inquiring to produce just one live angel even if It be of an inferior type The dic tionary defines an angel as a spiritual celestial being superior to man in po er and Inte111genceIIt just one appear on the earth It would scare th preachers to death and they woo flee to Mt Hepzadam to get out of way The Truth Seeker of New York makes this strong point on this angel question The clergy ought to stab llsh If they can the genuineness of angels because if there are no angels the images of them are no better than petrlfiod lies The Truth Seeker Is right That is an axiom that even a theologian cannot evade If there are angels now right now is the oppor time to produce just one and If angels are mere creatures of diseased imagination and there are a few thou s and petrified falsehoods in the ten mil Ion dollar cathedral at New York how it be claimed that Gods house is the abode of truth This state of things at least casts some suspicion n the things that are taught in Gods house The preachers can as easily prove the existence of male angels as can prove the existence of the living God A savior born of a virgin u heaven or hell the soul being In or proof of immortality This Is a big contract but to prove the oxlstencet of male angels woud be a starter anda might make the rest easy The world In this age demanding proof of all u f ii these things and in due limo it Is go- Ing to have it or destroy the clerical trust that deals exclusively In spiritual goods thus rendering Cathedrals ed with stone angels and preachers with rich sinecures of no use what ever in an age of reason and common sense Angels are always suP posed to wear white robs and have wings The Episcopal clergy try to gee themselves up as near line angels us possible They wear petticoats and white flowing robes cut from a night town pattern and add to it angel oiepves or course they ought to look angelic but when a big burly man wits whisKered or mustached face with a wart on his nose stands in a chancel waving axe angel sleeves and a survey ol his ngure is taken down to the coth trowsers below the angel robe and unshed off with a pair of big reel In Celt enn shoes such a figure sort of paralyzes the angel Idea am givesri am grad that it does for women coolUd s as the men who wear angel robes on the earth Of course there are only wae angels The Bible plainly say that men are the sons of God an women are the daughters of men and It has always amazed me that tnese sons of God who evolute into angel should be willing to be born bt and wedged to the daughters of wen and thus break the celeeU al groot finf uible gives no hint that women go to heaven or become angels and trot some of the pretty things that Pau and John and other Bible authorities have said of them their condition on earth Is not very enviable and millions of them can bear testimony to this factWomen will find that male abound in the Bible and the Boo never speaks of a female angel- A taideratlleletpoersl lnLt9ij14UWnciIthe child she had borne and told her to go back I any respect for that angel This is rec orded in Genesis 167 Numbers 22nd iells of the Angel of the Lord with- a sword In his hand appearing to Bal dams ass 17

Lord a man of God appeared to the wife of Manoah and said unto her Behold now thou art barren and barest not but thou sht conceive and bear a son and she went and told her husband and he made no objection and In due time she gave birth to Samson of the flowing locks Judges 523 An angel of the Lord told Meroz to curse the inhabitants of the land nothing very angelic about that- Judges Cll An

Zacharias that his wife Ellzabe t shall uear a son and thou shalt call his name John The male angels seemed to make husbandstt wives woud bear sons by the Holy Ghost or some other father the birth of daughters was never an noun ed and even meddled in family affairs so far as to name the sons Male angels alone made these an noun ements and the husbands of the woman Implicity obeyed the angel Since Bible days things have changed and Joseph and Zacharias were the lost lof their type of husbands that nave appeared upon the earth If an gels should make such announcements today they woud hardly be treated as courteously as in Bible days and that may be the reason that the live angels stay In heaven and delegate tho stone angels to attend to their business with the old of the clergy themdthey

Editor C C Moore has carried sorrow into thousandS of hearts and home throughout our country It came as a great as Mr Moore has always been a very robust man leading a most exemplary lice abstenious in ntl things and living coso to the heart of nature But advancing age and the straw and stress upon his brain and heart in his great lire worK of destroying superstition and promoting moral Ity sobriety and virtue among fellow is now telling upon his spend physiclquo and with heart and asthmatic trouble his condition Is at times critical American journalism has never produced a grander or more unl fquo figure than Editor Moore He is in a class by himself and his Inlluenc has been greater and more far reach- Ing than the conservative world Is willing to acknowledge A man with lofty ideals who will suffer imancii loss persecution and prosecution wear the garb of the convict and death for his principles is a laceI figure in this sordid selliesh ing hypocritical cowardly generation Such a figure is Editor Moore In thl 20 or more years that he has been at the editorial helm of the Blue Grass Blade he has stemmed the rushing tide of ignorance intolerance and hy f pocrlsy and has time and again been overwhelmed with discouragement and persecution even to being impris oned in county jails and the Ohio pen- Itentiary AND FOR WHAT Men ly because he thought deeply on the mysteries and miseries of life the religious governmental and social r systems that shape the destiny of the human race and his conclusions did not agree with the ideas of the com moo herd who never think ut all and jx he had the courage to put in cold prin his convictions and conclusions For a man or a woman to express honesy 0 t convictions contrary to stereotype ideas is punished as a crime in this socalled enlightened age Whatever i Edtor Moore has suffered he has made it possible for thousands to rise in their mental integrity and rcieasi themselves from mental slavery He has started rills of thought that t now rising to rushing torrents and yetwhile waves of persecution rolled ove his life bark before his splendid courage the waves are retreating and he has made smoother sailing for others What grander work can any humai being do than to hep establish the rights of Reason Editor Moore did Jgapproje were his methods nro J f frk consclenclousJ t T9gSfaJP e his detractors did u vould not qr could not do th work at all by any method If all that Editor Moore iias written pleading for sobriety higher morality justice to the defenceless and a grander and nobler life free from the in justice shams and vices of the civilization of today could be put into one book it would be a literary treasure U help the world to higher thinking anc nObler living To emphasize the honesty of his efforts he has lived a life of absolute mental and moral integrity At times he has been bitter too bitter but let us remember that the world has beer bitter and cruel to him and he is but human How many of the uncog nlds turn the other cheek How many Let them answer for them selves Editor Moore has spoken burning words that will never die for the rights of Reason the rights of the poor and defenseless the rights tit women the rights of tho Negro the rights of even the prostitute made t a draught upon his sympathy and no man in America has tried harder to wipe out the curse of strong drink t and make this a sober nation than he But the pride and hope of his life has been the Blue Grass Blade While the has Indeed been leading the sim ple life plowing sowing and reaping at Quaker Acre he has taken time to load down its columns of the Blade with reason common sense and plead ings for better things than we have today and the Blade though small in size has found its way to the ends of the earth and has been read by more people who have borrowed it or obtained it by other means than any paper ever published in the Unit ed States and for the number of cop lee printed each week it has more readers to the copy than any one pa per in the journalistic field No paper has more loyal devoted generous or selfsacrificing friends 1 and supporters than the Blade and its patrons and readers are found in cit ies towns rural districts and foreign 1 lands This has been achieved by the r sacrifice suffering loyalty and tenac- Ityj of Editor Moore and the loyalty of the friends of the Blade Now after all his struggles the sage and philosopher of Quaker Acre lies at his old Kentucky Home in the shadow of the Great Unknown and his character with Its crowning virtues and some faults is being rounded out Some faults he had yes some faults and L J Jtif P tf17 i who has not At this crucial time let us bury them and think only of his virtues that stand out like torches In the night and of tho grand work that he has done for tho betterment of thl s weary old world Should he linger yet awhile let us rejoice his tempest toct heart in his closing days by rahyln to the support of the Blue Grass made on which he has without any cot pensation spent his best efforts and on which his hopes have been cents ed The Blade should be one of the greatest mental and moral powers In the American Republic and this has always been the wish and aim of Ed tor Moore Will his friends make it so He has through sacrifice and suffering laid its foundation will his coworKers and friends build the superstructure Personally I am grieve beyond expression at Editor Moore failing health and I owe him a debt of gratitude for his splendid service to humanity and I know there are thou who join me in this sorrow and gratitude JOSEPHINE K HENRY Versailles Kentucky LETTERS FROM FRIENDS Balm OrldaI notice the way you have been stormed by the press seeking to learn of your condltioi Kind wishes for
