' A CITI FLAG. One of .the fine thlnss the km- ericaa Leglpii did «1I Aver Kansas Was to persuade business Arms In all-the towns to provide United Stales Flags mounted on, uniform staffs for. ^ich 6. socket was provided in the edge of the sidewalk In front of each place of business. In this way was able to put on a fine display.of theiNatlonal colors upon every patriotic occasion. But the trouble was that the merchants got In the \iablt of putting out their flags oi every gala' occasion,—football games, baseball ganiesl debating-tournaments, what not. Everybody knows that this Is not a proper use of the Flag and It was not' long until protests began to be heard. lola met this protest by providing "Welcome" pennants for the Important but not patriotic occasions. And- that did pretty we^l. But now comes El; Dorado wiih a fine suggestion. It Is that a city flag b|c designed. Then on . |ac- caslon^ when it Is not propei^ to fly the Stars and Stripes and yet when the, city would like to display its enthusiasm, the city flag should i^e riin up on all the flag staffs. To promote this idea the Chamber tt Commerce of El Dorado has offered a prize of $26.00 which will he paid to any student of the El Dorado schools who submits a design for the city flag which will be approved. Such a flag will not only protect the Stars and Stripes frotn being made commonplace, but it 'Will provide EI Dorado with a uniqite banner for community advertising. What El Dorado Is dolQg why should not loia do? The .first man to tell a story nevef has a chance. In this office the other day a man told of see^ ing the teacher of his Sunday Scliool, one of the richest men in town, take a handful of silver out of his pocket .when the class col- Ic'ctlo nenvolopc c;umo around, and after a rapid search with his forefinger put Ihe whole clinking hand- 1 fill back into his pocket with I he remark: "1 don't secin to' have a penny today, boys." The other man .said that his Suuday Seliool teacher was a well-to-do niaii. teachins a mixed class of men and woinen.

It probably is true that hootlcg- j;iu(r worse in Kansas now than it was. before the passage of the ISth ahiend <iient. It certainly Is -bad oiKiugh the country over. And yet thej qunnjity of liquor sold and drank i .s foriar short of what It would 1)0 if Saloons were legalized that till- advantage to the country is liicalculable. JV writer in Mhe Saturd.iy - Evening Post declares, ^ and <>uo£es aiifhor.lttes to prbve. thai the dilnk bill of Orcat Britain fast yciir ; whs not less than one ^billion five Hundred thousand doU larti,—and Ififcat Britain has con- Khlerahly lep than half the popu- latlo. nof the United State?. With open salooUH all over the land the " United Staters would doubtless be spending at least two billions and l )ossil )ly throe billions a year for drink. Of course It Is not spending anything approximating that 'linpc sum now. And the.difference between what it would JBpcnd and what it docs spend la tbo measure of the financial advantage of prohibition, while the other advantages cannot be measured. - The climax of the . Corn and roultry Shbw which Is being held - in Tola this week will be the lunch• eon . at the Kelley hotel at noon Saturday. The speaking program which is immediately to follow the luncheon will be featured hy addresses by Hon. Jake Mohler, Secretary of the State Board of Agriculture, and G. W. Catts, Agricultural Commissioner of the Kansas City (jThamber of Cohimerce, and by" th«i presentation of prizes, trophies and awards in all depart- mentsJ It will be a most interest- ins and important occasion and the dininp room should' be and doubt- \ess vrill bo crowdeif to capacity. Indeed those who wish to be sure of a plae^ at the tables should malve their reservations right Ttovr. The last time the Democratic party held a convention in the South there was a party^ split and two tickets nominated. The speech of Heflin, of Alabama, in the Senate on the 18th; has set political prognosticators ; to wondering if history wl next time 1 not repeat itself the he democratic convention I.s held In the South, which will be next Jurie. Certainly Heflin himself couid not support Al. Smith after such a tirade ds^ be\ launched against: him, and if he is' nominated the Alabama Senator and those who think as he. does will either have to go over to the Kcpublican party or nominate an Independent Dcniocratic ticket. "Murder fold" by "The Fox" Is the title untier which a Los Angeles Syndicate Is offering to the newspapers "12 thrilling chapters" m the life history Of-Edward Hick-, man, the kidnaper 'and murderer, as told to his jailer. That,Is one story the readers of the Register will have to get along without. We are not quite sure (but that if we were. the prosecuting attorney at Los Angeles the whole world would have had to get along without it. The suggestion of the chief of police that It merchants would leave their own cars at home or park them on a side jstreet there would be mor^ room; about the Public Square for the cars of their customers is one whjch carries with It a hint that shojild be glveii heed. It- Is not likely to put a customer in the best of humor to find all the parking spape lit front of the store at which he had come to trade, occupied by the cars of the owner of the store and his employees. « Paul Jones,-, of the Lyons News,; thinks, the editor of the Register is small potatoes because he made -a funny crack aboat the deficit of the Democratic National committee.. Trouble with the Admiral is he cant* take a joke, or can't even We- it when It Is on the Democratic part^-. The Register man thought his paragraph was real clever. And now the .•idTn'rnl geis mad end Fog Is a menace to 'ships at sea as every one wlio etrer has sailed along the. course off the Newfoundr land banks knows from having had his backbone shaken by the sound of the fog horn sounding at 30 second Intervals for 24 hours or more;. But It seems to be a complete bai- to ships In the air. For thue or four days the first of the week air rbail planes were unable to fly, even In Texas, because of the heavy fog. Down at Havana the people in attendance upon the formal opeit_ ing of ttie Pan-American conference .had to stand at attention while twenty-one National Anthems wel-e, played.

Jesus, who stands aliovo them both a.s a mountain rises above a plain —for Ho was God's only Son. wliereas they were but servants —taught a faith incredibly simple and of the .'spirit. Tlie Being whom H^ revealed was not a fussy, rule-ridden gchoolmaster. plaguing the lives of the learner.s with judles.s discipline: hut a father, ft-ise, tolerant and patient, concerned chiefly with fho well-being of His children. Moses' Jehovah anil Mohammed's Allali are fearsome; hut the Father-God of Je.-ius is wholly loviible as well as adorable.. His ra^rcy Is inextricably- bound' up with His majesty. thoughts toward His cWldren aro- thoughts of health jsnil happiness and wholeness; of 'jiplrits liberated to a life In the i'amily llkenobs. Somelimea this staggering simplicity of the Mes.•»age brought: by Jesus has been too muchl for the tbi>ologians and ecclesiastics; and they have added to it many burdensome details of their own deWslng; so that to a multitiide of folk, who get their Ititerpretation of Christianity at second hand, religion is a discipline of "don'ts," a barren thing of |)*tty proiscrlptlons and program­ mes. The uncouumluated Message of Christ is so sweetly simple that to many it seems "too good to be true"—as If anything could ever be "loo good to be true" for the children | of a bounteous and affectionate J^thor! "For the lovje of God to:broader Than tho measure ht nian's mind, And the hes'rt" of the Eternal.' Is most wt)ndcrfully kind." Rellglonfs Present Crislii. Churcb attendance has sadly slumped in these daysi and the authority anji prestige of the churclieji has gravely diminished. As a result, there are many Jere­ miahs abroad in the land. On every hand we hear talk of "crls- l.s." What is really happening Is that the world has grown liiipa- tlent with ecclesiasticism and in- stltutlenallsm, Which,' In^ead of reveallnr God, often tend to con- leal Him. Itl is the accretions of Christianity that are In peril, not Christianity itself. On every hiand are signs of an unprecedenteci popular Interest in religion. There never before were so many definitely religious articles in the newspapers and magazines and nev^er so many religious bookis or so much discussion of religion. Humanity's heart is hungrier than ever for living Bread, pfter having become sated with the husks of materialism. . Ours is a dissatisfied generation, and much of Its groping in the dark is toward the Light Because It has sometimes failed to find the reality of God in oiir formal and official, overloaded and overorgan- Ized Christianity, mankind Is prone to - wander Into the wilderness of doubt and denial. ' Hard and inexorable was the Church of pur Lord's> day. It had more regulations than the Methodist Book of Discipline. It» fasts were more numerous than its fe-'cfT. lt<t errpmonlnl rltu-'H hid interpreted and amplified into a network of particular practices iwhich enmeshed even the most pious. And tho eccleslasticli,in of His day watched Jesus with eagie eyes, primarily to catch Him in some transgression of these ininu- tae. Tho freshness and freedom of HJs life and message and ministry wero incoinprelicnsible . to them. An Inriilent Iroiu ClUiiii. Once, in a Chinese cit.v, my wife and I were shopping with a missionary friend; when the:nier.-hant turned toward our interirreter, and said,;, with woiiilerinK incredality and resentment. "Why don't these people speak our laiiKliaKe'? To llini there was only one laiiKiiage; anybody speaking aiMitlur a barbarian, a ••forcisfii devil."

The narrow-mind(-(l ,-Pharisees condemiwd Jesus wherein He did not conform to their ^jarticular conception of churchline.'-s. What they construed a.s "the -Law" was their only criterion of rightoousnes.s. The profound spirituality of Jesus, and His complete accord with the very nature of God, they were too blind to perceive. A religion of the t^piirlt wa-si beyond tlielr understanding. Yet ho religion Is real which Is ncit primarily a concern of the spirit. Thio professional chiirchman of His: day were not ready for the Mnsl^'s great word, •The letter kllleth. but tho spirit giveth life." .When Jesns Got Angry. . Hounds of hato began to dog the footsteps of Jesus even thus parly In His mlnlstr.v. These car- jilng. censorious, self-righteous religionists were not content with mere crltlcisml of His unconventional conduct. It was not enough foV them to rule Him out of their own select circle, and to brand Him as a heretic because He had a larger and more loving Interpre- llgious leaders of His day had misrepresented God ai^d ill served man, in a proud ' and [intolerant selfTrlghteousness,; ITesus grew angry with them. " It gives paose to eVery person who liaft come, to a place-of re >8pon «iblllty and lead- ershii) in^ the church toj remember that the wrath of the lovlns Jeans was repeatedly lyured out upon the highly-ijlaced churchanexi of His day. ' - i . ! Is This the Xew Rellgtonl It seemed like a hew religion that Jesus was bringing to Galilee; therefore the offfcfai custodians of orthodoxy we're jaghast ;ln the senso that It was emaiiclpatlon from the chninsjof encrusted and perverted legalism. It Was a | new religion; although. In truth, Jdnly a return to'.a clearer knowledge of tho nature aiid' will of God. Every generatioii thus needs a new religion: which Li actitally hut a stripping away of non-essential accretions and usages, and a' get- thig back to the pulsating father heart of God. ^ Of new "religiohs," or sects of cults, our day ha.s an overabundance. Some are trivial and weird and unreal:'Other.*; are a. sincere reaching forth toward the change- les.-* reality qf tlie God whom Jesus revealed. Oliristiahity itself Is in consUint-Tteed of revitallzatlon. as outward custoihs, sanctified by yi'ars and usage, tend to .supplant the inner truth. ' . "The old order changeth, yielding place to new,; . And God fulfills.Himself In many ways, " i I.,est one good custoih should corrupt tlie world." -[ Ritual is not religion. Rote Is not religion. Regtilations are* not religion. The ever-new religion Is that revealed of old—and fresh every diay to sincere and seeking spirifs—by Jesus, Christ: who taught us that God is a seeking Father-God. Who wants His-children to lovo Him,- and to live toward one another as those who love Him. To accOmiillsh that supreme goal of th«t' ages dod went the limit. e\-en to.the sacrifice of Christ on the crosrf, jujat sin's power nilgbt be broken, and that all of His children might come home. This is the Higher Law, and the perpetually new religion—that we should love |Ilm 'whjo first loved us. • . ' SEVEX SENTENCE SERMONS.

'1^-^:^''''^ the lifht. e s •1; I rules permitted, thcf went farther, and made an alliance with their natural foes, the Herodian party, and "took counsel against HIth, how they might destroy Him." Thus we find the grim shadow^ of the cross thrown athwart the very opening 'of the public career of Christ. Because He was different from themselves —more humin, more helpful, more loving, more spiritual—the potentates .of established religion began to-plot iho death of the Son oi" God Himself. This cloud hung over the thr^e years of the active life of Jesus; it was in an environing atmosphere of hatred that He went about doing good." Not for an instant did Jesus compromise with these powerful foes; or in. any wise diminish or modify His message and ministry, ^ar from it. He knew the thoughts of the pr<>ud dignitaries and their spies who watched His every word and workl And Ho accepted their challenge. The record runs, in the day's lesson, as He was healing the man with a withered hand. In a synagogue on the Sabbath, that "Ho looked round about on them with angeV. being grieved at the hardening of their hearts." Yes; Jesus got angr.v.
