articles by Dr Eugene L Fisk which will continue for eighteen weeks and cover two columns a week and a history of the English Bible by Prof J R Robertson of Berea The health articles are on such subjects as Pure Air in the Home Pure Water in the Home Sunlight in the Home Good Food in the Home Exercise in the Home Bathing in the Home and Care of the Sick in the Home Each article will be appropriately illustrated The articles on the history of the English Bible will treat the various translations beginning with the first from the Latin and then the others in succession going back of the Latin to the Greek An interesting phase of these articles will be the examples of certain quaint translations that will be given which will serve to give those who have never seen these different versions an idea of what they are and the labor it has required to band down this priceless treasure in pure English and at the same time conform to the mean ing as expressed in the Greek Wo hope to illustrate these articles with cuts of seme of the translations and a few plates a fide pages The health articles should appeal to all those who are more interested in the prevention of than the cure They have been submitted to Dr Cowley the College physician and have received his unqualified indorsement No one should fail to read them for if their directions are followed thousands of lives and thousands of dollars will be saved And there is great need for the other series The influence of those who profess to be able to teach the Bible quickly wavers when it is discovered that they are lacking in such knowledge as these articles are designed to give We rus that our readers will beon the lookout for these features and follow them closely for we can assure them that any one article of either Series will be worth many times the subscription to THE CITIZEN 4 1911 FOR THOSE UNDER 21 Let me say a word to young men and young women who will enter the New Year of 1011 under 21 years of age Some older people maylisteui- New Years Day is more important then your birthday because it marks the ago of the World You have often heard that times change That means that customs and conditions change and the things that make success and happiness in one genera tion may bo different a few years later Old people have longer memories than the young and they ought to be wiser But no ono grows wiser just by growing old Wisdom comes by thinking over the things we have heard and seen and felt So my first advice is that you do some thinking before you are carried over the line into 1911tIf you are more than a child you ought to have some aim and purpose in life What kind of a man what kind of n woman do you aim to become It is easy to aim at nothing and hit it What mistakes have you seen people make and what mistakes have you made yourself that ought not to be repeated Dont drift into 1011 without some good strong resolutions A fltroug resolution is not a brittle one that is spoiled if once broken Rather a strong resolution is a tough one that may bo pushed aside but always comes back like a hickory bough Dont say I will not speak one bad or foolish word and theuthink itjs all over if you do once break that resolution Rather say I constantly try to be clean truthful and reverent in all I say When you got to thinking and mating good resolutions you may feel like praying Then pray You will outgrow the need of parents help but you will always need Gods help And you can always have it by asking Do not feel disheartened because you have not much money You have what is worth more than money in the fact that you have CONTINUED ON FIFTH PAGE Miss Bowersox I Dean of Women Gold Medal ColumbiaEldean Marguerite Flour 65c Instructor Mrs PutnamI Wheat Cream of Grape Nuts Post

small crowd of young men about Berea They are now attending Cumberland City Academy at Cumberland City Tenn and will be a nice little addi tion to Borers upper Academy and College freshmen students If

Finding Which Is Presented to Senate and May File Minority Reports Later Washington The report of Its is vestlgation of charges of briber made in connection with the election of Senator William Lorimer of I1U nols was submitted to the senate by the committee on privileges and elections through Its chairman Senator Burrows Wednesday just before that body adjourned for the holiday re cess The conclusion reached by tho cots mittee follows That in their opinion the title of Mr Lorimer to a seat in the senat has not been shown to be invalid by tho use or employment of corrup methods r practises Charges that four members of the Illinois legislature were bribed am chat three other members paid bribe ire not Ignored by the committee The report declares that those whi confessed to receiving bribes shouU not be bclleed and that the votes of those who wero charged with paying bribes should be counted In relation to the charges that then was a corruption fund used in the 1111 nols legislature and that it was dis bursed by one Robert E Wilson the report says that there is no evident that It was used for the benefit of Mr Lorimer Tim committee suggest that any Investigation of time use of tuck a fund should be made by au ihorities of the state of Illinois The statement of views of Senator Frazier was made public later In his statement Senator Frazier declare that the four confessed brlbe taken Implicated three other members of tho legislature who bribed them that those three votes were also corrupt which would make seven tainted votes Kllinlnatlng these seven votes Senator FrazIer holds would make the vote received by Senator Lorimer less than a majority The report as presented was not signed by members of the committee although it did not appear that there was any minority On the floor of the senate however Mr Bevoridge made the statement that ho had not bees able to concur with or dissent iron the findings because of the voluminou character of the

States in 1910 is nearly nine billion dollars an increase of about eight hundred million dollars over 1909 Secretary Wilson of tho United States department of agricul ture says this increase is largely due to tho result of the study of agri culture as a science Our free schools high schools and colleges all over the country aro making agriculture a part of tho regular course This is the time of the year for every young man who is not in school to plan for a winter course Tho crops are about harvested and there is little work to be dono on the farm for tho first threo months of thoyearWhat do the young men on the farm do during the winter months was a question asked me but a fow days ago My answer was that somo of the moro energetic fellows go away to school or else attend a winter subscription school some study read hunt and supply tho wood dally but a far greater number loaf around the farm postofflce or store rendIIngget work for nearly all tho warm and pleasant days and again some visit around among their kinsfolk who aro doubtless glad to see thorn but would enjoy the visit moro it it were not so long To the young man who spends most of his time in the winter working at nothing let me suggest that life is too short to lose three months out of tho year If you do not expect All Calicos Sc 25C Suiting ISc Dolls Toys and Nice Presents for the children father mother and sweetheart at half price Come one come all A Happy New Year to teach or take up any other pro fession you have to choose between the farm of your own a commercial business or working for some one else If you have plenty of money education and experience you may find somo commercial business profit able If you havo little education and less common sense just plan to work for somo ono else who can do your thinking for you But If you are not to be a professional lawyer doctor preacher or something of that kind if you have not the money with which to enter business or if you wish to bo independent the farm has a call for you The fact is nearly ninety per cent of tho young men of Eastern Ken theipreparEd to run a farm as it should bo run The lawyers and doctors who study and work hard succeed tho ones who do not fall The future farm er who studies and works will suc ceed ho who does not will tall Young men of Eastern Kent ckyIIyou must study farming or else tho country in less than twentyfive years Aro you ready to fall out and leave tho hills of old Kentucky to the sassafras tho bramble and the wild animals If so the sooner you leave the better if not you must not let this winter pass without taking a course in agriculture somewhere Borea College offers a course this winter in Soils and Farm Crops al so one for more advanced students in Stock Feeding Theso will bo more fully described in some later issue 1911 FOR THOSE UNDER 21 CONTINUED molt FIRST PAGE years ahead of you in all probability The point is hovi to use these years and not waste any of them About the first aim of a young person in 1911 should be to get some education I do not say this to draw more students to Berea We have almost as many as we can possibly provide for now And I am as sincerely interested in Hindmanand Morehead and Oneida aud Buckhorn as in Berea But all these schools exist to help young people I speak for your sake and not for the sake of any schoolEducation will do things for you thingsthethat have passed through life before you 2 It will draw out your own powers You can never know what talents you have until you polish them up and compare them with the talents of others in school 3 It will put tools and strength and skill into your hand for your calling in life whatever that calling may be And every calling in these days requires education I am moat concerned for the education needed in our mountains I am sure the mountains are the best part of the South and that the people of the mountains with the right education will be the superior people of the South Education will double the crop on every mountain farm and double the joy in every mountain home Many will not believe this They will let people from outside learn to survey the landand manage tho business and they will go on in the oldways or backslide a little But in every place it is only a part of the people who work for progress and improvement Everywhere we findon the one hand the fearful negligent people who standstill or go backward and on the other hand the enterprising courageous people who go forward There will be enough of these people of courage faith and unselfish public spirit

of a dusty show window It had a certain charm for the ono who found it It was the picture ot a watchnight service such as she had once known so well Bright moonlight flooded tho scone bringing out In sharpened detail tho snowladen boughs of drooping elms and tho Gothic spiro of a small stone church From stainedglass windows and opened door came streaming the warm glow of shaded gas jets From village streets flocked men and women and children stopping to say a word of greeting as they passed Into the vestibule The spell of tho picture took her with tho speed of the magic carpet or of tho sevenleagued boots back to the New Years eves of her girl hcod So she had walked with father and mother and a sleepy small brother Just so the tree had looked In the frosty moonlight And just as warm

whon ho had finished tolling her and she opened her beautiful gray yes very widely at young Murray By Jovo yes 1 added and it urainl old Tcrbune after all And It waent old Torhunc other who was with Agatha First tbo day you saw tho rod automobile in tbe woods eni said By Jovo not I said excitedly I know Id Men that machine of Brancc potlis before And as I glanced nt It again the whole significance of the mystery w It bad made In regard to Agatha First and Arch camo to mo with the force of revelation I turned to MfZatn It all to Dearest but as usual abe was uhoad of me It was rou ell tho time she said to Murray but with a smile of such In effablo relief that I wondered until mho turned to Arch and I saw what bearing that fact had on the situation In re BMd to Affiith Sixth and Torbunos aunts property Im co sorry she said holding out I hor panda to tho old boy Wo did you tn Injustice Mr Terhuno And sho told him briefly of tbo scene sbo and T and Agalni Sixth had bcon witness tu tho other night In tho drawing room RES onr suspicions of him In connec tion with IL I took him a moment or two to grasp what Abe meant nnd what hor discovery Will our suspicions wero un lust might ml an and I spoko before ho did And now It will bo all right Dear rsi I said about Agatha Sixth Sho will sea thai she was unjust to Arch end yon will toll her wont you And I looked at her eagerly But to my lurprlso jus as I thought everything explained everything arranged and the road cloi to a reconciliation and engagement fxtwoon my frlond and my Hrlfus friend toward the accomplishing Of which objicit wo hAd invited both parties to co no to Castle Wyckboff Dearest seeded Inclined to spoil tbo whole thing I y refusing to act as medi ator between tbo two Ana a mediator was nooossay that Is if they wore tu bo brought together In limo to mako ho engagement n fact before the fatal hour hail arrived for Miss Lawrence was still looted In tho fastness of her room I snyl 1 Implored soiling Doarosts nand dont hesitate now At such a crisis Uo aid toll Agatha Sixth the pows nnd RPt her to come down before Its too Into Uy Jovo it Is hard on poor old Fcrhuno to lose n fortune because you choose to kayo whims I- Was so earnest I was almost angry Oro would think a fortune was a mater of no imrortanco to him at nlll Tints juts It I replied my wife adly iteol too much Importance The only reason that 1 hesitate to do as you ask Is because Ive seen nll- i1Jtnc that tlu fortune baa been the only Important thing to you men What 1 a pity And the eyes I IOTO best In ther woathenand I saw at once what was tho other obstacle I had to face In my attempt frIendNow gard to his fondness for Agatha First had been dissipated by Broncopeths revelations tho only Impediment to tho satisfactory conclusion of Archs affair was Dcarcsts refusal to cooperate with me nt this crucial moment because of her belief that Terhunos wish to marry Agatha Sixth was purely a mercenary one And as I at length comprehended what I might bavo seen stoppedtoscornful and almost resentful attitude toward myself on several occasions for apparently supporting my friend in his meretricious deslgns With this now grasp of tho situation suddenly given to me I couldnt begin fast enough to try to mako my wlfo understand what I bad so lately learned myself that Terhuno sincerely loved Mlsa Lawrence As quickly as I could speak I began to tell her as proof of Arch repudiation of my suggestion In regard o asking Agatha First Instead a moment ago In tho hall I judged provcFlthatwould convince my wife as tinothing else could that I was right In atething olso in the world even fortune consideringvmarried Dont you see I ended ho refused to do as I suggested refused to go and ask Agatha First although he believed thoroughly that sho could accept him solely because bo was In lovo with Agatha Sixth and would rather have had no ortuno at all than n fortune with any other girls I laid my hand trumphadGrasping my meaning with lightning like rapidity Dearest was on the In stunt all action Tho time Wilfred cheeksnSix mInutes of ono I answered as she pulled the watch from my bands Archibald Terhuno Do you hoar that1 she almost shouted to Arch In uncontrollable excitement Its six mlnutos of one Find Agatha Sixth and ask her to marry you for heavens During This Meal We Gathered Fur ther Data II I nako Then as Terhune only stood and stared at her with dropped jaw sho stamped her foot vehemently Dont stand and stare like that she cried Do at I say Hurry Hun for your life And Arch was gono at the word though I dont think ho had until then any Idea that there was still tlmo tore trlevo tho day and afortune To do him Justice 1 dont think ho had any other thought subsequent to llrancopeths story and the revelations that fol owed In regard to Agatha SIxth oason for refusing hIm than that rho was more likely to change her mIni and marry him after all since br suspicions had proved unfounded And this thought to give him all his rue had been sufficient to make him nippy without any thought of his units property In fact I think he bad forgotten tho latter In the first bliss of tho moment but whon Dearest raised her warning and Inspiring cry bo had realized that after all a fortune Iko that hIs aunts property represent nd was quite well worth tho having m not attempting to deny you see bat there WIlL enough of his old self oft In oplto of tho changes lovo had wrought about not to make him rather ertnln now that bearest had remind d him of It that Aunt Georgys Aus rallan farm would not mako half a bad sort of wedding present At least I noticed that bo lost no time In obey ing her mandate for no sooner were tho words out of hor mouth than Ton hune was In full cry for the staircase with Dearest and myself hard after him while a couple of fox terriers that had sprung from dear knows whoro added to tho confusion by yapping at our heels and otherwise Impeding our progress In a praiseworthy attempt to bo In at tho death And oven as I tripped and stumbled aver them and laughed and whooped with Dearest I heard that chump of a Bran epeth out on tho stoop shrieking Gone away Gone away as If ho were possessed It Is n6 wonder then having admitted the childish stato of excitement In which Torhunos last throw for a for tuno against tlmo had thrown us that In the contusion we all three succeeded In running into Agatha First as she came round tho corner of tho hall on her way I suppose to find out what all the nolso was about Dearest stopped a moment to explain things to her and I could seo over my shoulder oven ns I hurried attar Arch that the two had given each other a swift brace before Agatha First hurried to meet her lover Wo bad just reached tho staircase e however when Dearest overtook us What are you going to dot asked Arch who was just about to ti cend Go up and find Miss Lawrence re plied tho distracted lover as quick at I can But Dearest elided past me and stood In front of him on the stIrs barring the way Watt sho commanded Shes In her room you cant do that Yo cant go and scream the good news through her door very well It ouldnl do at all You must have more regard for tho appearance of the thing But good heavens cried poor Tom hunt this la no time to think of ap pearances Its threo minutes of one But my darling paid no attention him Hold him Wilfred she ordered me and as I sprang to obey WIts gone In tho shadow of the hall above Two and a half minutes later and not a second after she appeared lending Agatha Sixth by tho hand though It Is true the latter looked weepyeyed to say tho least and gave every appearance of reluctance This vanished however at sight o1 Terhuno redfaced and somewhat rarm from his vain efforts to frco himself from my embrace and she flow down tho stairs to meet him and by sheer forco of arms not to bo face tious compelled mo to relinquish m position in her favor Something I wa Jolly well pleased to do by the way Arch Is a hard man to hold when hes riled nd that two and a half minutes of suspense had main mo his debtor for a couple of knocks and oho well kicked shin But just how the miracle of Agatha Sixths change of heart had boon accomplished or In what manner Dour oat had EO presented her case as to achieve such speedy results I am no I prepared tostato I only know that It was nothing moro than I hall expected of the cleverness of my wife and as for Torhune I think he was too happy to know or care CHAPTER XIII As for the rust of us Including Solicitor Barnes who had been roscued from the library by some maid or footman wo repaired Immediately to the dining room where tho weddin luncheon of Deorosts creation meal cd us and had all taken our places be fore the big clock on the mantel quIte ceased booming the hour Of coisrse tbe bridal nature of tho table decora tions rondo a hitas my Americanized wife persists In sayIngwith thoso two ardent lovers Brancopoth and Agatha First and they admired and exclaimed quite as If the whole thing wore gotten Up for their especial benefit And It was during this meal that we gathered fuller details of the trials and trlbula tlons that had beset tho path of this now happy pair which explained and accounted for many hitherto una countable happenings of our own ax perlenceAmong other things it appeared that Brancopetb was of course the owner of tho checked coat I had soon in the automobllo In the woods and that the coat we had found in Terhunee closet later had only borne a resemblance to it Tho young man had rundown from his uncles place in his machine that day ho told us to meet Agatha First In tho woods by prcarraugement with her which of course explained the business of her assumed headache and refusal to go to Northbury with us They had been obliged to keep tholi attachment n secret evidently enough on account of Branccpeths uncles de termination to marry him to Miss Sim plln But when wo protested against their having left us out of their confi dence Hrancepoth explained they had thought it best because they feared that Cecil Cblltcrn who It seemed was a great friend ana political ally ol his despotic uncle would find out from us probably through my wlfos friendship for hIs wife about Brancepethi engagement to Agatha First in which event Braucepoth felt convinced Chll torn would fool It his duty to Inform said

disbelieved by Jaws Gentiles and Christiana The great Christian author St Paul agrees ox actly with tho words of Moses In our totext saying Without tbo shedding of blood thoro is no romInn Ion of sins Hebrews 922 Tho orthodox Jew and tho orthodox Christian therefore are In substantial agreement an to tbo unorJhodoxt Tho latter agree that thoro is no ne ceeslty for sin atonementthat tho later thought of all tho wlso men of time earth tbo grpatost ministers and rabbis la that there Is no such thing as original sin banco could bo no cancollngItiJffaction to Justice on behalf of It the worldly wlso of Christon adom have reached limo p6lnt of repu dialing the testimony of tho Old Testament and the Now respecting the noed of a sacrificial death for tho sat isfaction of divine justice tho cancel lotion of sin and the restitution ol tho sinner to divine favor Tho claim of the socalled now Ihoologisls repu diatom the fall repudiates the ransom and repudiates a restitution to nil that wax lostclaImIng that nothing was inat and all that we havo Is gain Thus the world and Its wisdom know not God and appreciate not his ar rungement that as death camo upon mankind through tho sin of one man Adam oven so a restitution to life should conic to all men through Christ that as nil In Adam die even so all In Christ shall be made alive Tbeso worldly wise cannot deny the fact that thero Is sin In Iho world and the thcro is death In the world and thin the tendency of all fin Is toward deathga greater than over upon our race Insane asy Ibeforoprisons and reform schools show notwithstanding our educational and wonderful achievements under the enlightening Influences of dawnlngIand the prison statistics and tho phys leal statistics show that in spite of everything our raco Is becoming men tally morally and physically weaker day by day It Is for them to explain how these facts fit to their theory of evolution I By the term Christian we refer to those who Intelligently believe tho ox I planation of tho Bible respecting sin that It is a violation of tho divine law and carries with It n penalty that Father Adam was created as sinless as are the angels and as perfect as they only on n little lower plane of being Obedience was required of him as the I rico of dlvlno favor nail ever lasting life Disobedience thrust him from paradise into tho unprepared earth to wrestle with the thorns and thistles where the decree Dying thou shalt tile accomplished his exe cutlon His race was In his loins and naturally shared by heredity his weak nesses and death penalty so that the entire race Is a dying race But the Creator won unwilling that Adam and his children should the as brutes God did not revoke hIs decree of death nor give any intimation that ho had done unjustly In condemning his creature He did however provide a way for their relief Ho provided that as the first wan alone had sinned actually so one Kodeomor alone would be neces nary for the race And to him be offered a great reward so that his sac rifice for sins would work out to his own advantage as well as to tho sinners A part of the reward was the high exaltation to tho heavenly na turefar nbovO angels and the gift of the kingdom of earth necessary for the overruling anal subduing of the spirit of rebellion In tbo world and for the oxaltatlon and uplifting from sin and death conditions of all the willing and obedient of Adams entire race But why should God require the doath of a victim as a basis for the forgiveness of tho sins of Adam and his race We reply that Gods law was Intended to be an Illustration of tha exactness of divIno Justice Jus llco could not punish Adam nor his children wIth everlasting torture or any other of the horrible things wo once Imagine Tho severest penalty of the divine law Is represented In our common law which as an extreme penalty requires the death of tbo transgressor After the dIvIne reconciliation comes human reconciliation Tbe great Messiah will not require sacrifices of humanity but on tho contrary will open tbe blind eyes and cause tho knowledge of the graca of God to roach Adam and every momber of his race Then nil willing for reconcilia tlon will bo helped by the great Medi ator of time New Covenant and by Is rcfll his chosen people and earthly representatives Tho object to bo ac complished during Messiahs reign Is the bringing to all the willing and obedient tho restitution which God has promised restitution to all that was lost Ultimately Messiah will transfer tbo nllopltnco of the whole world perfected by him to Jehovah God that ho may be JJ In all I Corinthians 152S e 1855 Berea College 1910 FOR THE ASPIRING YOUNG PEOPLE OF THE MOUNTAINS Places the BEST EDUCATION in reachof all Over 64

over to the commission now libraries will bo added by purchase and It will bo the aim of tho commission not only to continuo the supply of traveling libraries in the mountains where they have been

collection and all correspond denco relating to library work should bo addressed to the Library Commis mien Tire Capitol Frankfort ICy +CALENDAR REFORMS Why shouldnt we have a scienti fic calendar Why shouldnt time first day of every month come on limo same Jay of tho week And I why shouldnt any particular dato Iin any month always bo on the same of the week A suggestion that seems bettor the one recently mentioned In TimeII Citizen Is made by Prof Chas E Slocum It Is proposed to divide the year into 13 complete months of exactly four weeks each by Inserting a midsummer month to be knownI as Sol This accounts for 364 days of the 365 14 In tho scheme Christmas day would not be counted in any week or month but would stand out by itself thus making tho 3G5 days In the samo way Leap Year day would stand by Itself every fourth year at the end of the year Tho other method which was previously outlined provided for two halt months to be Inserted at the middle and end of the year This seems much the moro simple It Is suggested that the reform begin with Christ mas Day 1916 but sentiment in matters of this kind Is about as fossilized as religious sentiment and It may bo hard to overcome tbo everything Is in favor of the now scheme and nothing against BAPTISTS AND CHRISTIAN UNITY It Is sometimes said that Baptists would find It moro difficult than any other denomination to como Into a fellowship with churches which do not hold that Immersion Is time essential symbol to express Christian life Jt Is therefore Interesting to know what Baptists think of this matter among themselves when they aro not de fending before outsiders their deno minational faith A Congress Is held annually at which Baptists speak their minds freely not as represent ing tho denomination but giving their personal views on live topics Tho Congress this year was at Augusta Ga with the Southern Baptists wjo had declined to enter Into tho Na tional Federation of churches It was almost the only denomination taking this attitude The relation of Bap tists to tho Universal Church was tho f toplo on which Rev John E White of Atlanta led the discussion Ho pro dlsI regard proposals for union Ho compared Baptists to the older son In tho parable of tho Prodigal a little selfrighteous In his consciousness of superior fidelity and Indulging In a certain resentment toward those prodigal denominations which have Wandered away Ho postulated these four fundamentals to union Tho acceptance of tho Bible as a divine JesusIIn Its Immediate fellowship with God the kingdom of heaven as a kingdom of righteousness to bo realized on earth All else Mr White said might be loft to tho arena of liberty and discus sion Volunteer speakers wo learn from the Examiner such as President Evans of Crozier Theological 8cm- ilnary Dr O 11 Ferris of Phlladel iihla and Dr R P Johnston of Now York spoko strongly in favor of larger liberty Tho latter said Wo are all llCOpleIcoming to us Baptists are hero po culiarly Inconsistent Wo talk liber ty of conscience but will not permit the exorcise of that liberty where it leads to convictions other than those to which we have arrived Wo em phasize the spiritual but mnko tho term of admission to our churches cor omonlnl If Jesus Christ wore allvo today ho would swoop out of existence our wholo potty squabbling about baptism The political tendency tho world over Is toward democracy our religious tendencies strangely enough are toward aristocracy Of course tho narrow view was not unrepresented In the discussion But the frank avow al by leading Baptist ministers of such sentiments as these quoted siva warrant for encouragement that something nkln to the vltlble Universe Church is feasible In our day- E D E1A This is a now association or ra ther It is to bo an association and this Is what the letters stand for Eleventh District Educational Asso ciation The program of tho first meeting of tills association las an interesting ono a number
