BY AND WAY OF CORRECTION EXPLANATION. •r ! \A few days ago the Register cilpport from the Boone County uowa) Democrat and published >vith editorial comment the following telegrams: * "Chanute. Kans.. .June 27, 1003. "P. J. Hurley, Boone. la.. "A well was shot iat VS2 feet showing 44 feet of pay oil sand. The oi! ,: raised 400 feet in twenty minutes after I being shot.

"Just s'hot a fine well and natives are crazy. Got forty feet pay oil sand. The well is among the very best in the field. Jones is proven O. K. "R. C. Brewsaugh.' i Commenting upon these telegrams the Register said tbat they contained what ^med to be obvious and pal-' p &ble misstatements, and could have been published for no other purpose than to fool somebody into making nn investment which they would not otherwise make, and that one result .-would be to dirow discredit on the Kansas oil fiei%. ,We are now in .rccei!)t of the follow. ing affidavits Which we are. very giad to publish: : Affidavit. : Humboldt, Kans., July 10. 1903.

And wc arej th^ more willing to do this for the reajson that Messrs. Moore and Brewsaugh assure us that the coa;- pany they represent has not sold a^d Is not offering for sale a single dollar 's worth of stock. They freely a-.I- mit that up to the time the well in question was drilled In, there had not been to their knowledge any oil! found In Kansas in the salt water sand. T%ey say, however, that in Ohio such wells are common, antl'^heir idea Is that they have simply demonstrated ihat such conditions prevail in the field yhlch they are developing in Allen county. -If this should proTe ^;t |Q be the ing iiiit a most valuable addition to the knowledge about the Kansas Sebi The Iowa & Kansas Oil & Gas Ci>nf pany, wliioh .Mr. Ivloore and Mr. Brewb- augh represent, is prospecting a re field al)out five miles southwest of Hi'mbokU, and certainly nobody v. )il Ijo bstccrj pleased than the Register if tiioy stri'.ic it rich. A SATURDAY SERIVION. case it would be not only an interest- (Cntribuled by L. C. Ti.) "Wi'.at greater calamity can fall upon a nation than the loss of worship? Tnen all things decay. Genius leaves iho tc :npie, lo haunt tiic senate, or the market. Literature becomes frivolous. Science is cold. The eye of youth :s not lighted by the hope cf other world?, and age Is without honor. Society lives to trilles, and when men die, wo do not mention them." Thus spoke Emerson, the great American propiict, sixty-five years ago. To what extent has this condl tion boon actualizod in our country' perhaps no decided answer can be given to this question. : It is possible that the nuraber of worshipers has been It is iikely. loo. that there is an increasing number of people among v;hom v.orship is coming to bo more sincere and vital. But it scem.3 to be true, also, that the multitude who havo aluuist lost the spirit of worship has grown larger. Sensd- tlon (enjoyment that qoYncs through the senses) has to a lat-go degree superseded worship. The consequences of the loss of worship are also apparent. Out of her class of almost three hundred graduates. Harvard gives this year but si.x to tho ministry. While good literature is on the increase, the great mass of literature;is frivolous. Science, except among the most thoughtful men, is as cold as the steel of the scalpel on a winter's day. Tho majority of oiir youag men seem scarcely to take eternity into account. Ostencailon and frivolity characterir.e our social sets, and funeral proce.'>- sions .go gorgDo :;sly and rapidly to th -3 open graves. Men do not have time to worship; work and social duties havo crowded it out at both ends of the day as well as on Stinday. Men cannot afford to -worship; they keep their nerves tingling with various sensations which benumb th/e sou!. Men do not know how to worship; even many of the churches have provided unsatisfying substitutes. Yet worship Is the highest act and the greatest need of men. Bur what is worship? Worship Is the feeling of the soul that it is in the presence of God. and tiie reaching out of the soul after God. When the soul feels that it is in the presence of God, it seeks to e.^pro^s itself to God; it is constrained to act as becomes the presonco of God. Such expression, such action is worship. Tho Psalms of the Bible are nearly, ail v/ritten in tho language of worship. Prayers, if tiiey are the sincere expression of the soul, are tn;o v.or.5hip. The reverent singing of a gJ.^d hyrrin is one of the most e:<altod forms of worship. Meditation may he worshy). But tho greatest of all means of worship is the doing of good deeds In the spirit ri reverence, loyalty, and love toward God. Worship does not work itself out into life soon becomes mockery. But true worship has not ceased. On the contrary, it is taking new and dcoper root in society. Although ir- roveronce is plainly visible, and hypo- cri:-:y parades its formalities before men; yet sincere prayers are ascending from tiic closet, and rcA -ercnt worship is being renderecf from many Kanctuario-s. In their more thdug?!t- fi-.I and solemn moments, when, sensation fails to satisfy, even the men of the inuliitudcs are having theii^ visions of God. The power of Godless men in public life is waning, and God^ fearing men are in the ascendency. Only the other day, when the new de- p.irtnunt of the government, tho bureau of commerce and labor, was fully Ir.unched, thej newspapers announced tho si.^ynificant fact that the opening ceremony began wiiJisprayer arid enJ- e-1 with tho benediction. It is being recognized that oiir nation rests on reverent honesty, inspired by honest worship.
