panionship told strongly on tin* agett
man's health. He had .wen residing
at tlii? home of his son, John I.eask,
for the.past few years, when* he passed away.
Captain Andrew Leask,was horn
near Lerwick, Shetland Isles, Scotland, in the year 1827, and moved
with his father and family to South

west and south to assist in moving
tin* crops will be IticroaBcd to $100,-

The desire of the government to
mobilize all tlie needed cash of the
public treasury in the unr (cultural
belts of the country to avert the
money stringency characteristic of
the crop moving period was communi-
mted to bankerh of the central west
at a conference with Secretary Mc-
Adoo and Assistant Secretary 'John
Skelton Williams, called by the
treasury department to matyi arn
rangoments for thu distribution of
the big sum.
While these representative ftnanctarf,
fresh from Hid crop marketing centers of the middle west, welcomed
the prospect of the proposed deposits, the concensus of opinion, it was
stated, seemed to be that $50,000,-
000 would be ample to meet thc situation. Tlie dominant tone of the
bankers' expressed conVtctC.ls -w-ds,

were good, but that the promised deposits would relieve tbe usual strain.

Secretary McAdoo, In his speech to
the bankers, expressed the. belief tnnt
thc usual stringent conditions in the
fall resulted more from fear than
from actual necessity, and he believed it the* duty ot the government
to anticipate the stringent conditions.
The bankers gathered at Hie meeting s.-ized the opportunity to present
their views on currency legislation to
the government. They urged two
material amendments to the pending
Glass-Owen hill, one curtailing tlu*
powers of the federal reserve board
proposed to control the reserve bank
system and the other essentially
modifying the reserve requirements of
the measure so as to minimize the
riYeei.tralization of credits. With
these changes, it was stated, all but
two ot the 81 bankers favored immediate tanking ami currency legislation.,

Tbe circumstances surrounding the

An American rail-flyer and a sky flyer engaged fn a race Irom New
York City to Washlnston, II.C. At one point the train pounded along the
rails at a terrific rate; one hundred miles nn hour wns the pitch of the
tunc to which the engine sung. While thc train stood at a station, tho
crew thinking the monoplane wns way behind, the latter was sonrlng
ahead at an unrecorded speed, hut when calculations were made, it waa
figured that the aeroplane had beaten the train IS minules. The former
American record for endurance .sustain, d flight and

Attempting to escape from the Nelson Provincial jail on Saturday afternoon Albert Wynn, who is serving a
sentence ol one year for theft, was
shot by Special Guard K. Miller alter
he had reached tlie top of tlie fence ot
the escrcise yard and was in readiness to jump over and commence a
sprint lor freedom, says the Nelson
Daily News. He now lies in a cell
at the jail suffering from a number of
small wounds in thc legs and the extreme lower part of the back, caused
by pellets Irom the
shotgun        with        which the
guard w»s armed. His Injuries are
regarded „s serious. He is under the
care of Dr. W. O. Rose, provincial
Health officer.
The attempt was cleverly plann-d
by Wynn and tlie convict would probably have got away Irom thc jail and
given the authorities a stiff chase II
It had not been for thc shooting,
which was intended to frighten the
prisoner and not lo hit him, the guard
Saining below the mon's legs. That
Wynn was wounded is attributed to
the fact that the window ol the lookout box from which Mr. Miller shot
is heavily burred in such a manner
that he could not lire above thc prisoner's head ami he could not aim
much below his legs without Incurring
thc danger ol hitting some of the
other prisoners in the exercise yard
witb the small bird shot with which
the gun was loosd and which spreads
considerably even at a short range.
Wynn had chosen a good time lor
his escape, as on Saturday afternoons
lho courthouse adjoining the jail is
usually empty and under ordinary
circumstances there would have been
none to give the alarm If he had succeeded in getting over the fence.
Owing to the construction ot the
jail building, which Is by no means
modern, the Inside guard, who carries'
the shotgun, has to watch Ihe prisoners go out into the exercise yard Irbm
thc lower part ol the building before
he can go to his post in the lookout
box. As a result there arc always a
few seconds during which the prisoner* arc not under observance by thc
lookout guard with the shotgun, while
thc guard who Is among the prisoners Is behind them and consequently
cannot see those who lirst enter tho
yard. Taking advantage of thin dt-
cumslanee Wynn Improved the occa
•ion hy Inserting a small piece ol
metal In the lock of the door through
reach the lookout box. The result
was that Mr. Miller was sufficiently
delayed to enable the prisoner to
clamber up to the top of the niiie-
foot fence belore he was discovered.
To aid himself in thi1 cftnib he had
driven two nails, taken Irom thc heels
of his shoes, into the toes of thc
shoes, thus providing himself with
excellent climbing irons.
Showing his inventive genius in another way, he had manufactured fromt
the iron wire handle ot a slop bucket
a wicked looking dagger and sharpened thc point to a needle-like fine-
neness by rubbing it on the cement
floor of his cell.
Weeks ago he commenced to prepare tor the attempted escape. One
day he was caught wilh a key which
he had manufactured from a spoon,
and the jail authorities also found
other pieces of metal in his cell.
To improved his wind for thc long
run which he knew would confront
Him if he got away Irom thc jail,
ll'ynn sonic weeks ago commenced to
spend his exercise hours In the jail
yard hy practicing sprinting after .the
manner ol a professional runner. The
jail authorities put a stop to this
form of exercise and a close watch
Was kept on the prisoner.
When Special Guard Miller saw
.Wynn on the finer he called to him
to come down and the prisoner was
also ordered to return to terra nrma
By the head jailer, O. II. Hardy, who
was in charge of the gang ot prisoners, but he continued his efforts tu
surmount the fence. Mr. Miller fired
and Wynn came slowly down the
fence, but it was not known that he
had been hit until flic guards reached
That he had anticipated thc possibility of lacing shot at was shown by
his own explanation of the manner In
which he hod protected a part ol his
body Irom possible pellets Irom rl •

Judge Thompson for robbing the safe

H. W. Drew, of $-W". on February 25

is after just now," he stated, "and
if the railroad, can secure some good

"A Great Northern man was here
some time ago and stated that the

"Mr. Hill has always had his eye
on. the west," he stated, "and the
Great Northern will be here sooner
or later. I do not believe that there
will bo any extension mode to the
road this year, but we all believe
that tin' Greal Northern will help to

will be at least a good average crop.
An average crop should run at least
18 bushels per acre, which taking the
acreage estimate given would mean a
total yield of over lfi(1,f)00,nflu bushels of, wheat, a crop that will help
the west out immensely at the present time. In Eastern Canada, crop
conditions have improved. Spring
grains in many places will be short iu
the straw. A fair yield of grain
may, however, be looked for. Recent weather conditions have been
specially favorable to the root crop,
which now promises much better
than a few weeks ago. Reports
seem to indicate a shortage In the
apple crop as compared with last
year. Fruit growers are, however,
not much alarmed at the prospect.
Last year many growers ilia not get
th.'ir own I out of apples, and may
welcome a year with higher prices
and a demand equal to the supply,
Generally speaking, however, fanners
will have a good season and Canada
another year of progress, agriculturally speaking.

"Believe Me" is one of the supremo
hits of the season. Ever sinee tlie
opening night of this clever musical
production ils success has been assured beyond all question. Already
advanced bookings have been made
that will take at least a year's time
for the company to fill. The fact
alone that time has been scoured so
far ahead ought to be sufficient guarantee ot the merits of the production. There can he no question of
merits when such an artist as Mr.
Hilly S. Clifford is to be seen in the
title role. Mr. Clifford has long
been recognized as one of thu coming
stars, and in this delightful musical
product of a clover writer, he hail

Advice has been received from the
Divisional oflicer at Victoria that our
application has been sent to headquarters and as soon as approved,
rifles and ammunition will he sent
forward without delay. The convmit-.
tee in charge have given instructions
to have tbe range prepared, at once,
targets will be erected and pit sank
nml other necessary alterations made.
Tlffi first game of the season was
played on the local grounds'on last
Thursday evening between Keinie and
Cranbrook. A very Interesting contest was held, lhe interest being especially kern at thc lasl, when
Cranbrook secured two goafs in thc
Inst sewn minutes pi play, tiding the
score. The game at that time stood
i—'i in favor of the visitors.
In thc tlrst quarter the Cranbrook
boys appeared u hit nervous and Fertile scored one goal. Thc game for
this period was slow, neither team
performing any remarkable stunts.
Macncil, a Kernie player, was struck
wilh a slick and his left check punctated. This was about thc only
rough play or accident of thc game.
Thc Fernie team kept tlie ball at
the Cranbrook goal all during this
period and were never in danger.
In the second quarter Fcrnie secured one after ft lew minutes ojay and
then Cranbrook seemed to emerge
from the lethargy whicli had been
holding them and came back with
some fast, work., securing two jroals
and (icing tin. score 2—2 at thc end ot
the halt.
The third quarter was hotly contested hut only one goal wins mode
although both teams were endeavoring to score time and again. Kernie
slipped one through ln this period.
A few seconds alter play started in
tlw lasl quarter Kerrir scored,     the
game then standing 4—2 in their
favor. It was then that Cranbrook
awoke and took the ball down to the
Fernie goal and succeeded ln crowding
two through in tbe last seven minutes, tieing the score at 4—4.
On account ot the lateness of     the
hour and thc poor light it was decided not to continue the plav.    Cranbrook will visit Fernie during      the
month for the return game, when tlie
question of the best team may be decided.    Tiie Cranhrook city band furnished music during the intermissions
between quarters.

same Sandpoint team which played
here before this season, but the regular team, whieh has recently won the
Idaho championship from Spirit I,akc<
The Cranbrook team has a record of
nine games won out ot twelve played
this season and should tie able to
give a good account of themselves on
lhe road.
The Xelson team met defeat on the
local bcseball grounds last Friday
evening and Saturday afternoon in
two of the most interesting games
seen here this season.
The lirst game on Friday evening
was a seven inning game which was
closely contested the score being 4-3
with the local team on the long end
sf the score. Nelson started wilh
one. run in thc first inning and Cranbrook tied the score in the second.
There was no more runs until the
fifth when Nelson made two when
Sturgeon's three-bagger scored Chapman and he scored a moment later on
Pitts long hit which was gathered in
by Burr.
Cranbrook made three runs in thc
sixth on hits by Hedigan, Burr,
Whclan and McNabb. Nelson was
held scoreless for thc remainder of
thc game.

Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock tbe
second game of thc scries proved an
Interesting duplicate of the lirst one,
with thc exception that there was
more hits and runs than in thc previous contest. Both pitchers were
pounded hard in this contest.
Cranbrook started the run getting
in this game with three in the first
when Savori's hit scored Adamson
who was presented with a walk. Who*
Ian made first on a dead hall and
both scored on Burr's two base hit.
In the third Cranbrook made one
when Burr's single scored Savorl.
Nelson started in thc fourth when
hits hy Potter and Wilkinson put
them on and they were advanced by
Whitehead who was thrown out at
first, Steele fanned, nnd .lonscy, gay
and        frivolous ns        ever,
lined out a clean
single   scoring both   Wilkinson   und
Cranbrook retaliated by making
three more when llcdlgan's hit scored Coachman and Adamson and he
scored on a wild pitch.
Nelson started things again in tlie
eight by making three stores but
Cranbrook came right hack with four
and the visitors could only get two
across in the ninth which left Cranbrook in tho lead. The eighth ianing
was tho feature of thc game when tho
Cranbrook batters fell on Hawlcy for
a two bagger, two three baggers and
a home run by Savorl.

Editor Herald:
Dear Sir: As there seems to he
impress-ion around town that the
baseball funds arc not being handled
properly, 1 beg to publish the follow
ing statement of thc club's finances.
Alt money has been handled through
the Imperial, bank and the checks and
stubs arc open for inspection to any
who so desire.
If thc parties who have been hollering their heads oft to Galvin and
Burr and others about the way the
money is being handled, would come
to the secretary (who Is given his instructions by the executive committee) and do their talking they
could get some information.
It looks ns though a lot of people
nre under the impression that it
costs nothing to bring in a visiting
team, and that halls and bats are
not used in tlie game.
Trusting the statement of finances
below will relieve thc slate of mind
of those who made the complaint, I
liog lo remain
Yours very truly,

"There fo no pari, nf tho f.inn
which will fflvo bigger roturna for
so litlle Bxpciidlturo of Minq anil labor ns tlm woodlot." This siato-
•nit'Tit in tho July numhor of lho
Canadian Forestry .louriraj, is marie
by Mr. it. It. Morton1, H. Sc, .■'., tho
Rilvioiil cxpeit, who is engaged by tlie
Forestry Uranoh at Ottawa to ili*-
niiMistsati' to tlto wood I ami owners of
Eastern Canada just how those bigger returns may bo m-hicvul. But if
it is not possible to obtain such ox-
pert advice, there are yet three  ways
in which the farmer, hy the exercise
of ordinary common sense, can Vastly improve tlu* composition, production ami reproduction of his woodlot,
The first thing necessary is to improve the character of the crop,
whicli can be done by cutting down
ami using for fire-wood all dlwas <l
and deformed trees, as well as such
species whose presence in the wood-
lot is not desirable. Only too
ijuenlly is the method of cutting
exactly the reverse. The htst trees
are cut, often [nr purposes [or which
an inferior wood would serve, and tho
poorer species are left to seed-in tbe
cut-over areas and to gradually
crowd out the bettor varieties. Ile-
tnre cutting, the farmer should con-
cider first tho use to whioh th*' wood
is fo be put, and second, the species
composition of lho woodlot which is
most desirable. Firewood probably
yields the host returns for a smn"
acreage and for this purpose rapid-
growers such as poplar, ash and elm
Should he encouraged, which nlmul.1
make nu annual growth of horn one-
half to une cowl per acre. Dasswood,
loo, will lie in increasing demand
because n[ ils rapid growth, because
it eoppiees readily and because of its
value in small sizes for thc manufacture of excelsior, cooperage stock
and other small articles [or whieh
Un* wood is particularly adopted,
.Maple reproduces readily, and although not a rapid grower, it nevertheless yields a substantial revenue
when it becomes largo enough to tap.
Soft woods like spruce, balsam and
pine grow more rapidly than hardwoods and might bo advantageously
grown for fuel or pulpwood.
When the most suitable species
have been selected and the wood-
trees removed, the woodlot must
then be thinned until the crowns of
the hcst-form,fd remaining trees are
seen to basely touch. An acre can
only produce a given amount of
wood each year and the fewer trees
there are tn share this yearly increment, and yet fully utilize tbe crown
space, the more rapidly will bo the
growth of these trees.
Tlie thud requisite in the scientific
farming of the woodlot, is that tho
cattle be kept out, especially after
heavy cutting, when reproduction is
most desired. Cattle are just _ as
injurious to a young crop o( tree-
seodllngs ns they are to a young
crop of grain. They may indeed eal
the grass in thc woodlot, but they
would jusl as soon, il not sooner,
eat the young and tender hardwood
Shoots, and the same can be said of
sheep. Fven coniferous seedlings
are not immune so tbat certainly in
reproduction is only assured by Icnc-
Ing-ofl the cut-over areas.
Dr. Fernow predicts thnt "There
will be a time when the wood lot will
sell the farm or will be a necessary
part of lho farm to make it valuable." In lho seasons when his
other work slackens the fanner could
very easily improve his woodlot in
anticipation nf this time nl increased
wood values.

It requires approximately seven
dollars per acre to grow a trop.
This Includes interest on tbe investment, cost ol seed, wear and tear on
farm machinery, labor, etc. Hy adding ono dollar's worth of labor to
each acre, there is little miestion lml
that the average profits would be
doubled. In other words, as much
profit should lie realized from the
one additional dollar's worth of labor
as is now realized from lhe seven
dollars' worth of unavoidab.ee labor
ami investment. Consequently if
farmers would devote onc-Uiird of
their land to growing com and alfalfa, ne.tlier of which interferes with
the time and labor employed in
farming wheat, and put one-third
more lal>or, thus made available on
only two-thirds ns many acres of
wlieat, they would grow more wheat
than where they spread their energies
over one-third larger acreage. The
corn and alfalfa fed to live stock
would insure them a large additional
income, and one that is not orten
adversely influenced hy climatic conditions, while the (ertiMty deposited
upon the farm resulting from feeding
the corn and alfalfa to live stock
would vastly improve the productiveness of the soil.
That a section ot the American
press is jealous ot Canada's prosperity, is shown hy the attacks heing
made on Canada's economic position.
Following thc bitter and somewhat
unfair attack of the New York Times
Annalist, the New York Journal of
Commerce in a recent editorial refers to the "Real Estate Bubble" in
Canada. The comments of the
'Annalist" have already been dealt
with hy various Canadian) financial
authorities, and thc arguments that
Canada was In a "bad way" in an
economic sense have been shown to be
unfounded. The writer in the "Annalist" does not take Into consideration Canada's heavy immigration and
the wealth whieh they bring into the
Dominion. In other ways, tho juggling nf figures Indulged in by our
American critic, has been shown >up
in Its true light.
The New York Journal ol Commerce, while attacking thc real estate values in thc Dominion and
showing that in Western Canada in
particular prices nre out ot all proportion, concludes the editorial with
thr contention, "that Canada has a
solid basis ot prosperity and a sure
Itope tor the future alter the town-lot
bubble has burst and the fever of
speculation has been stayed, is beyond question."
Continuing, the editorial says:
"Tho Dominion has an area of
3,74.1,000 square miles and comprises one-Hixteenth nf the land sur-
fare ot thc globe. With a territory
as large as Europe, Canada has a
population of only 7,780,000. Her
net public debt Is within 5350,000,-
000, nr only Ui per head of her
! population, while her annual income
I from agriculture, mining, forest pro-
j ducts, fisheries and manufactures Is
' close upon (1,800,000,000 or about
$200 per head ol the population.
| Deducting 1150,000,000 a year as the
payment for which Canada is liable
in respect of her indebtedness tor Interest to British and foreign creditors, and there still remains a act
income of SI,350,000,000, or 1174 per
head. Assuming the national wealth
ol Canada to be eight times the
amount of her net income, end we
have the Impressive total ot $10,-
800,000,000, or $1,400 per head of
the population. Canada has, moreover, a comfortable surplus of revenue over expenditure fn her annual
budget nnd her burden of taxation Is
relatively light, For a country so
fortunately situated the bursting ot
an Inflated real estate bubble can only be a temporary disaster awl     •*
that can hardly fail to carry witli it
a valuable lesson. How much the
lesson is needed may Ih* inferred from
the fact that as high as $5,000 a
foot has been paid for laud in thu
choicest part of Calgary, and thnt in
an obscure little town a corner lot
130 feet hy 100 feet has commanded
as high a Price as $80,0(in. In
parts of Edmonton land has lieen
held as high as if it were in Uu.
heart of New York or London, and in
Winnipeg and Montreal there are
sites which their owners would
scarcely exchange for a similar surface nn Cornhill in the Hritish metropolis."
This tribute trom such nn Iniluen-
tial paper as the Journal of Commerce Is extremely gratifying. This
paper is unusually well Informed,
and its conclusion in regard in Canada's economic posit ion will no
doubt, be widely quoted, Thai Canada has hud a real estate boom especially in the wesl, is boyortd ,j,i,*s-
tion. Our western cities are going
ahead at a tremendously rapid rate
due to thc inllux nf new immigrants
and the great railway extensions being carried nn. This is nn reason,
however, for "wild-catting" In real
estate, and it is tc, be feared that
there has been a good deal nf this in
the past. The present quioMng
dnwn nf the speculative fever is likely to be productive of much good,
and will give the western cilies time
to adjust themselves.
Canada in general and the western
cities in particular, will have a lot
of iKirrowing tn do within the next
few years, and it would ho just as
well if our various municipalities
should go easy in their demands for

Why should any dry-land farmer
ship his products to market in lhe
form of hay and grain?
There is but one correct answer to
litis question: Tie shouldn't do it.
Vet the average western fanner nf
today fails to do anything else. 'As
a matter of fact lhe prat-tire of selling wheat and corn, hay and other
(arm crops from the land, year after
year, results in a gradual but constant loss of soil fertility. It costs
no nmre to till soil which will produce forty bushels of wheat per acre
than soil whieh is so worn out that
It will produce but twenty. Herein
is a fundamental principle of farming, and one of thc strongest argu-
nmnts in favor of live stock bushnnd-
ry. The feeding of farm animals
not only means that 85 to 90 per
cent of tlie fertilising value of the
crops feed can be returned to the
land, but also that such forage crops
as alfalfa, clover, and cow peas will
be grown to accompany kalir, mllo
and corn. The former crops draw
from the air more nitrogen than is
sold from the land in tbe shape of
meat or milk products and the effect
is to build up instead of to tear
Every farm should be a factory.
Dividends depend upon thc cost of
marketing. Live stock provides a
home market for tbe crops grown.
Feeding live slock is a means of
condensing a product to about one-
eighth of its original weight. Seven
pounds out of every eight are thereby
marketed on the (arm, reducing the
freight charges for transporting grfeln
by 87! P" «nt and doing away with
the usual haul tn tlte local market or
elevator. The utilization of waste
roughage, the seasonal distribution of labor, ibc added pleasure of
farm life; all ate additional points
for tlie western farmer to consider
when mapping bis course to farm

Despite the periodical outbreaks of
Socialism, which paint home conditions in a somewhat disparaging
light, Germany cannot be such a bad
old country to live in. Emigration
figures are a pretty fair barometer
to thc peace of mind of the natives of
a country. Contented, satisfied
people stay at home. Unsatisfied
people roam. Of course some contented people also rove far afield but
thc vast majority of emigrants are
folks who naturally hope to do better abroad. . German emigration figures tell a story of increasing home
Last year only 18, 45 good Teutons left for foreign lands, compared
with 22,090 in 1911, 25,531 in 1910,
and 2211,902 in 1881—the highwater
mark of German emigration within
tho period mentioned. The average
annual exodus for the whole decade*
of the eighties wes 134,242, for that
of the nineties, 52,987, and for the
first, decade ot the new century 27,-
To what do thc German authorities attribute thc annual diminution
in the exodus of citizens? To the protectionist policy under whieh industries arc building up an immense
foreign trade and given profitable
employment to millions of German
people. Thc total emigration from
Great Britain, last year was 268,
486, and in comparing these figures
with Germany's it is well to remem
ber that Germany has twenty-five
per cent, more people than Great
question now being asked? The probability is that this will be the
case, and our rich people will turn
to some other form of locomotion.
However, instead ot disappearing
from use, the probability is that the
motor, especially the motor truck,
will increase in popularity and in
use. Experiments show that it is
much cheaper to haul heavy loads hy
means of a motor truck than by
means of horses. Motor delivery
wagons and motor power vehicles of
all kinds are likely to come more
and more into general use, so that if
if the rich drop the motor car as an
unfashionable vehicle, business men
will continue to use motors for business purposes in increasingly large
The automobile industry in the
United States has already assumed
large proportions. In 1909 there

Following tbe decline ol tbe bicycle business, came tbe establishment
ol the motor cycle and the motor car
business. Tbe manufacturers ot tbes"
have assumed immense proportions,
not only on tbis continent, but
throughout the civilized world. In
the United Stales anil Canada hundreds ol millions of dollars arc
dreds of millions ot dollars nre Inv-
invested in this Industry, which has
become one of the most important of
'all Industries. Men are now asking
if the motor will follow the bicycle
into disuse. Mr. Henry Ford, the
largest manufacturer of motor cars
In tlie I'nited States, made tbe
statement a few days ago, that
within tho next five years perfectly
good motor cars, jusl out of the lac-
lory, will be secured at a cost from
$200.00, to $300.00.

ln Canada the automobile industry
is but In its infancy yet we have
eight establishments engaged In ihe
iiianufuctiire of automobiles and
eleven in automobile repairs and accessories.
The capital of thc former estali-
llshments is $1,000,250 and ol the
latter $301,272. Thc annual value
of the products in one case is $8,-
251,885 and in thc other $170,930.
Thc bicycle industry in Canada is
looked alter by lour factories with a
total capitalization ot $08,000 and,
three bicycle repair plants, with a
capital ot $14,200. Thc value of
tlwir output is $72,279 ln one case
and $12,1125 in the other. The bicycle
certainly has given place to thc automobile.

materials have never been prettier or more attractive.

Boucle Curls, Matelasse, and all manner of brocades are among the most popular. Soft,
woolly mixtures and blanket cloths will also receive their share of favor.
In Suits, the severe mannish suit—a sin! that is exactly what the name implies is
one of the most popular. Bulgarian effects, cutaway fronts, and set in sleeves are also
shown a great deal. Serges, Tweeds, and Rough Surtace Fabrics are the favorite materials.

Editor Cranhrook Herald:
Dear Sir: In our contribution oi
last week wo said that Uie two
basic principles of Christian Science
were: The unreality of matter, nnd
tlie infinity of mind, Coil. The leaching of this system on sin and evil
naturally grows out of those principles. Sin and evil inhere in the
flesh, matter. Hut there is no matter, therefore there is no sin nor evil
lo inhere in it. Again, to save your
valuable space, wc have tiuoled verbatim from tlie text book of this
system, where lhe length of llie
statement would permit it. Otherwise we give llie exact, sense as
briefly and ns accurately as possible.
-HI. To put ilowm the claim ol sin
you must detect it, remove ihe
mask, point out the illusion,
anil thus get the victory
llilile: Rom. 7:11. For sin taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by il.
slew me.
101. The nothingness and unreality
of evil.
Bible; Isa. -15:7.     I make peace
and create evil,
207.   Sin exists only so long as   the
material   illusion remains.     It
is the sense of sin, and riot llie
sinful soul, which is lost.
.        Bible:     All have   sinned    and
come   short ol the glory     ol
200, 111,    177.   II   soul   could   sin.
Bible: Thou hast sinned.
■108.   Is Ihere no sin?   Answer: No.
105.   Evil or devil have no place   or
existence,       Bible:   Tho devil
sinnelh from tlie lieginning.
Hill.   11ns  man   fallen'.'    Bible: Gen.
0:5.    And   (lod    saw that the
wickedness ol    man was great
in the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of      his
heart were only evil continual-
171. Man is Incapable ol sin. Man
lias nn freedom to sin.
477. In Science we learn 11 is the
material sense, not the soul
which sins; and it will be
foil ml that it is the sense of
nit. which is lost, and not the
sinning soul. When rending
the Scriptures, the substitution of lhe word SKNNK for
StU'l,    gives   the exact ineaiii
Tlie nbuve imssaRcs cnuld be
multiplied Indefinitely, bearing
the     same   moaning. Hal
enough has Itcen quoted to show
even thn most nbltise reader
the line nf defence established
by (he author of Christ Ian
Science. Grant lhat these
denials nf sin mid evil are
true, then we nre forced in
these nppnlling conclusions.
The words "sin," "sins,"
"evil," "transgression" and
their equivalents strewn
through the Biblo from bogiru-
nlng lo end mean nothing, absolutely. The Bible gathers
about three great topics, viz:
SIS', the SINNER and SALVATION. The only salvation
man needs is to be
saved from thinking he is u
sinner. Jesus Christ died nn
lhe ernss, not tn save men
from sin nnd its penalty, but
ftom the SENSE of sin.
"The Son nf man came in seek
and In snve that which was
Inst." What was lost? Not
lhe sinner, nr the sinner's
soul, but a false delusive ma-
(eriiil sense,
