Only in memory can adequate honor >e paid to him. . . . Good-by, Cole lendron!" Then, from the city, came sudden- y the sound of earth's voices raised n Iludyard Kipling's "Recessional" : od of our fathers, known of old.... The tumult and the shouting dies, The captains and the kings depart. . . . Earth's voices singing to the skies, where never earth people had been before. Tony sprinkled earth upon Hendron—earth not of the earth, but of the planet that had come from he edges of Infinity to replace It. The grave was filled. At the last Eve and Tony stood side by side, while the others rolled a great boulder over the spot as s temporary marker. Tony heard Eve whispering to herself, "What Is It?" he said. "Tell me!" "Only the Tenth Psalm, Tony," >he whispered: "Why standest thou afar off, O Lord? Why hldest thou hyself in times of trouble?" And in the far sky a speck passed and vanished beyond the hill, an abrupt and vivid reminder of the ex- gencies of the present Eliot James sat in the apartment which he had chosen for his residence, and looked from its unornamented gray walls out over the city of Hendron. Presently he began to write. In a cabinet at his Bide were drawers filled with note- looks upon which was scribbled the history of the migration from earth. "In summary," he began, "since :here has been no time for detail, I will set down an outline of our conditions since our perilous removal to this city of the Ancient 'eople. "We have shelter, the gorgeous shelter of these buildings rising in a hundred hues under their transparent dome. We have warmth, for although we are moving Into the cold at a prodigious speed, the air sucked Into the city is heated. Around the rim of the dome are situated eight tremendous ventilat- ng and alr'-conditloning plants. We mve light in abundance—our city n the long dark of night Is like day. Jnderground Is food enough for us for unmeasured generations. Some of that food disagrees with us. Some Is Indigestible. In some there s no nourishment which our gas- Tic juices can extract. But the vast bulk of the stored produce Is edible, delicious and healthful. "We have a plethora of tools and machines. In the development of electricity the Other People have far outstripped us. Also in the ex- enslon of what we called 'robot- control.' They manufactured almost no machinery which needed human attention. A technique of photo- lectric cell Inspection and auxiliary engines make every continuous mechanical process self-operating. The vast generators which run underground to supply light, the power- 'ul motors of the ventilators, and :he pumps which supply processed ivater from the river for our consumption, not only run by themselves, but repair themselves. "The northwest ventilator cracked a bearing last week—and In the presence of Tony and Ransdell It stopped Itself, took Itself apart, removed the cracked metal, put on a new bearing, reassembled Itself and went Into operation again. They said that the thing reminded them of the operation of one of those earthly phonographs which stops automatically and has a moving irrn to take off played records and [itit on new ones. Only—the ventilator motor was thirty feet In height and proportionately broad and long. "We have clothing," Eliot James continued In his diary. "In our first camp there Is still much more clothing from earth, but we have not reclaimed It The Bronson Betans wore very light and very thin clothing. With domed cities, always warm, they needed clothes only for ornament—as do we—In reality. But they left behind not only vast stores of garments and goods, but the mills in which the materials were fabricated. We are using the materials now. No one has yet appeared, except for amusement In a Bronson Betan costume. Their shoes, of soft materials, are all too wide for us. Their garments were like sweaters and shorts—both for men and women— although the women also wore flow- Ing robes not unlike negligees. However, we do wear portions of their garments, and we use their materials—all intermingled with the remains of the clothes we brought from earth, so that we are a motley mob. "All Bronson Betan clothes were of the most brilliant colors—they must have loved color to live In a paradise of It I saw Tony yesterday, for example, In a pair of old brogans, old corduroy trousers and a shirt (made by Shirley Cotton, who Is now In charge of Textiles) crimson In color, ornamented with green birds about a foot high—by all odds a more strident and stunning garment than I've ever seen on one of New York's Four Hundred. "We have baths of every temperature—private and public. The Bronson Betans were great swimmers. Jack Taylor made a study of their athletic records—and found "He Made a Mark Across Cosmos and Infinity. Only In Memory Can Adequate Honor Be Paid to H I m. Good-by, Cole Hendron." them superior In almost every kind of event to ourselves. "We—and when I say we, 1 mean a score of our number—have mastered the language and much of the science of the Other People. Of course, we have not delved into their history deeply as yet; or Into their fiction, or their philosophy or their arts—Into their biography or their music. And their poetry Is still quite incomprehensible to us. "We fly their planes now. We run their machines." Here Eliot James paused before continuing: "Our personal relations are Interesting at this point I have given them little time in my diary hitherto, because of the pressure of my activities. "Our most notable romance—the love of Tony and Dave Ransdell for Eve Hendron—has reached a culmination. "Tony is going to marry Eve. "There was a period shortly before our desertion of our original camp when it appeared for a little while that Eve would marry Ransdell. That was Immediately after his. dramatic return to our midst Eve indubitably still holds Ransdell in high esteem, and even has a place of sorts for him In her heart But Tony is her kind of man. Tony is nearer her age. Tony Is our leader—and she was the daughter of the greatest leader of all times. Tony worships her. They announced that they would celebrate the first wedding on Bronson Beta in the near future. And It will be the first. The Asiatics have, accord- Ing to Lady Cynthia, made a com- plete mockery of marringe—and marriage was apparently unknown to the Other People. "Ransdell, I think, knew always that Eve was not for him. He Is a silent person, usually; but I believe that occasionally his love for Eve must have been very nearly Indomitable—that lie was more than once on the verge of asserting it wildly and Insisting on It He has that kind of passion—but I believe it will never be seen uncontrolled. Now he is resigned—or at least calm. And he has been not only one of Tony's ablest men, but one of bis closest friends—if not Ills closest "Shirley Cotton, the siren of the city, Is still In love with Tony. She talks about It in public, and tells Eve that when the biologists eventually decide that because of the larger number of women than men, two women will have to marry one man, she Is going to be Tony's second wife. An odd situation—be-cause some day that may be A necessity—or a common practice. There are now nearly ninety more women than men In our city. Eve is so brave and so broad-minded and so fond of Shirley, that if the situation ever became actual, I almost think that she would not mind. We have passed through too much to stoop now to Jealousy. And all of us feel, I think, that we belong not to ourselves but to the future of man. "Dan and Dorothy, under Westerly, are going to Bronson Beta school—learning the language by the talking-picture machines, just as the Other People's children did. And they are the only ones who are beginning to be able to speak It naturally. In two or three years they would be able to pass as Bronson Betans—except for their minor physiological differences. "Dodson Is having trouble with the language. He goes about the city talking to friends, eating in the central dining room and mumbling that 'you can't teach an old dog new tricks.' He never was a good linguist—as Duquesne has proved by talking in French with him for the amused benefit of all who spoke the language. But Dodson Is most eager to learn, because from illustrations In the metal books and In the screened lectures on the subject, he has found that surgery on this planet was a science far beyond terrestrial dreams. Working with him are flve women and eleven men doctors. "Jack Taylor Is the sheik and Romeo of Hendron. About twenty still live here—watching us, wait- Ing to strike against us? Do the Mldianltes have spies here? "We are virtually agreed upon that theory. Yet we cannot fln;l where they hide. But we do know —to our sorrow—that they have spies in other cities. "After learning to fly the planes, we armed them. Then Tony dls patched a fleet of six to make n thorough Inspection of the surrounding country and the neighbor ing cities. He wanted full Information of the Mldianltes and of the territory around us. "Tfcere are two cities south of where Ransdell landed his ship. There are several Inland. All were entered and explored. In the southernmost city the crew of a plane commanded by Jack Taylor was sniped upon, and two of his men were killed. "A third plane did not return. It was subsequently sighted near the northern city occupied by the main Mldlanlte colony—shot down and wrecked completely. "We have been spied upon several times by planes flying over the city. A request for surrender to the 'Dominion of Asian Realists' was dropped twice, and our failure to reply brought one tremendous bomb—which, however, did not pen etrate our tough, tranpsarent envelope, although It was unquestionably intended for that purpose. "It is not safe to leave the city," Eliot James diary continued. "Twice parties on foot exploring the geology and flora outside the gates have been flred at by enemy planes which appeared from the north and dived at them. "It Is evident that the Mldianites are engaged In a war of attrition. They mean to conquer us. They mean to have Bronson Beta for themselves—or at least to Insure that all human beings upon the planet will' be governed by them and will live by their precepts. And Lady Cynthia has left no doubt In our minds about their desire for our women. They need what they call 'breeding females.' I think that 'need' In Itself would be sufficient to cause every man and woman here to fight to the death. "Yes, we could and should be hap py here now. But— "More than three hundred Englishmen and Englishwomen are living in subjugation, and we are unable to set tliem free. They are our own blood and kin. They are living under conditions at best odious, at worst horrible to them. We cannot be happy while they are virtually slaves. THE STORY FROM THE BEGINNING Under the leadership of Cole Hendron, American scientist, some 200 persons escape in a Space Ship just before a cosmic collision that wipes out the earth, and land on Bronson Beta. The appearance of an airplane, which disappears without making an attempt to communicate with the refugees, leaves a feeling of alarm. The newcomers realize they are not alone on the new planet, and that their visitors may be enemies. Tony Drake and Eliot James, on an airplane flight, come upon a city, enclosed under what seems like half an Iridescent glass bubble. Among their finds, In the city, is an edible grain—millions ot bushels. On their way back they stumble upon the camp of more than 200 persons who left the earth when they did, in a second Space Ship piloted by Dave Ransdell. Tony learns that Russian, Japanese and German Communists have reached Bronson Beta and probably sent the mysterious plane to spy on their camp. Hendron'a outfit is gassed by unseen enemies, but all recover. The Asiatics make, in aerial raid. Tony and hit men annihilate their armada with terrific blasts from the Space Ship's propulsion tubes. Hendron's health falling, be orders Tony to remove everybody to one of the Sealed CitUs, which Is done. Hendron dies on the way. The Americana find they derive their power of light and heat from a plant In another city, and tear the Asiatics control It and plan to freeze them Into submission luring the Intensely cold winter. Von Beltz, a leader, disappears. Cole •4*ndron U burled with appropriate honor*. of our handsome girls and women (they are handsome again, the long strain of our first rugged months having ended) are wildly vying for his attention. The tall, red-headed college oarsman takes his popularity with delight—and he is seldom seen without a beautiful lady companion. When he was absent on a mission for Tony, the number of blue damsels was appalling. They could not even write to him, which seemed to distress them enormously. "Duquesne has moved nest door to the German' actress who joined us In Michigan. He is working on the mystery of our power source— and 'cementing the bonds of international amity,' he says. "Hlggins has found some carefully preserved seeds in the radium- warmed cellars of the city, and he has planted them. He keeps digging them up to see if they have sprouted—which, so far, they have not; and he goes In a perpetual daze." Again Eliot James paused. Again he wrote: "All those factors are on the pleasant side of our ledger. We are a civilization again. Love and clothes and cosmetics and fancy desserts and gossip and apartment decoration have returned to us. Our animals have been collected from the encampments, and the;- are installed In a 'barn' made from a very elaborate theater. We have harvested and dried a quantity of the spore vegetation as hay for them. They thrive. We are wakened by a cock's crow in the morning, and we serve fresh eggs as a badge of honor with great ceremony at the rate of four or five a day. Dan and Dorothy have milk. We've made butter to go with the eggs. We should be perfectly happy, perfectly content. But— "Where is Von Kelts? "He vanished the day Cole Hendron died—the day we arrived here. Tb,at was- sixty Bronson Beta days ago. And nothing has been seen of him or learned about him since then. "And— "Who dwells secretly in <mr city? Who stole one of our three roosters? Who stole Hibbs' translation of a book on electricity? vVho screamed on the strpet In the dead of nlprht three days ago— turning out the people In Dormitory A to Bnd—no one? Do the Other People "And also—Bronson Beta moves ever Into cold. Bitter cold! Sixty days ago the surface of the planet was chilly. Then, for a while it warmed again, so that we enjoyed a long fall or Indian summer. But now the chill is returning. Our seasons are due not to an inclination of our axis, as on earth, but to our eccentric orbit. The earth in winter was actually nearer to the sun than in the summer, but In winter the earth's axis caused the sun's rays to fall obliquely. Here on Bronson Beta we move from a point close to the orbit of Venus to a point near that of Mars—and the change in distance from the sun will bring extremes of temperature. "That Is not all. That is not the only problem—anxious problem— which faces us In these autumn days. Shall we turn back toward the sun? Our scientists say so; but shall we? This planet has not done it yet Its specialty seems to be a drift out into space. "Our astrophysicists and mathematicians burn their lights far Into the night of this new planet In order to anticipate the possibilities in our state. They are not romantic men. "Meanwhile as we move out Into space toward Mars, that red world Increases in size and brilliance. Already it is a more vivid body than was Venus from the earth, and Its color Is malevolent and ominous. "So the days and nights pass. "Ves, our colony Is returning to the happy human pursuits of love and knowledge and social relationships. Hut we are surrounded by mysteries, terrors, spies within our city, enemies who would conquer »s; and always the red planets draw nearer—as not long ago the two bodies from cosmos drew toward the condemned and terrified Earth." As Eliot James finished that entry ii« his diary, he was interrupted by a knock on his door. "Come in," he called. Shirley Cotton entered. She said something that sounded like "Ho- payiato." "Hopaylato yourself," Eliot James answered. "That's a Bronson Beta word" she said, "it means, 'How the devil are you?'—or something like that." "Sit," said the writer.

D Member of Faculty, Moody Bible" Institute of Chicago. ® Western Newspaper Union. Lesson for October 13 THE STORY OF JEREMIAH LESSON TEXT—Jeremiah 1:6-10' 26:8-15. GOLDEN TEXT—Thou shall go to all that I send thee, and whatsoever 1 command thee thou shall speak. Jeremiah 1:7. PRIMARY TOPIC—The Story o£ Jeremiah. JUNIOR TOPIC—The Story of Jer- emlah. INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC—Taking a Staiftl for God. YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC—Attacking Entrenched Evils. 1, Jeremiah's Call (1 : 1-10). 1. It was pre-natal (vv. 4, 5). Before Jeremiah was bora God ordained him a prophet to the nations. 2. His diffidence (v. G). This seems to have grown out of his youth and Inexperience. 3. His hesitancy overcome (vv. 7, 8). God graciously appeared to him and made clear that he should go where sent, speak as commanded, and to be not afraid of the faces of his enemies. This was accompanied by the assurance of the divine presence. It matters little as to the strength of the foe if the presence of God is with the messenger. 4. The divine message given (v. 9). The very words were put Into the prophet's mouth, not merely the thought but the proper words to express the thoughts. 5. The nature of his ministry (v. 10). It was to be wider than that of prophesying. Six words were given as descriptive thereof. The first four are destructive In their implication: "root out," "pull down," "destroy," and "throw down," The last, two are constructive: "build" and "plant." The destructive precedes the constructive. II. Jeremiah's Grief (9:1). The unbelief of the people made him feel that his efforts were fruitless. Seeing so clearly the awful doom which awaited this people, he wept sorely. The true prophet of God takes to heart the seriousness of his ministry and sorely grieves over the wicked unbelief of the people. III. Jeremiah's Prophecy In the Temple Court (26:1-24). 1. Jeremiah's solemn warning to Judah (vv. 1-7). The Lord commanded him to stand In <a aonspic- tious place in the Temple and proclaim the judgment which was about to fall updn them. The object was to provoke them to repentance. If they did not repent, God would make the Temple as Shlloh. Shl- loh was once the dwelling place of God; now It had fallen into decay. So will it be with the Temple. Jeremiah was sent to speak the words which his Lord had told him and not to diminish a word. 2. Jeremiah on trial (vv. 9-11). a. Cause of arrest. He was arrested for speaking all that the Lord had commanded. b. The charge (vv. 8, 9). They charged him with a capital crime, which involved pretending to speak for God and speaking against the Temple and the city. This would make him to be guilty of blasphemy and sacrilege, both of which were to be punishable by death (Dout. 18:20; Lev. 24:1G). c. The princes sit In judgment (vv. 10, 11). We thus see that matters of state were not entirely in the hands of priests but in part were controlled by members of the royal family. 3. Jeremiah's defense (vv. 12-15). Threats of death did not deter him from preaching but only inspired him to repeat his message with clearness and tenderness. a. lleiteratcd the divine commission. b. He urged them to amend their ways and to obey God and thus avert Hie divine judgment (v. 13). c. lie gave himself up (v. 14). He did not resist the powers of government. Knowing that God had sent him he was content to trust God for deliverance. d. Warns of fatal consequences. He frankly told them that God had sent him and if they killed him they would be guilty of defying Gnd. 4. Jeremiah saved (vv. 10-24). a. The princes pronounce him not guilty (v. ](i). They were convinced that Jeremiah was speaking the truth. b. The elders plond for Jere- iliiuh (vv. 17-23). They cited two cases: Mlcnh (vv. 18,19) and Urijali (vv. 20-23). They argued that killing God's prophets did not turn aside his judgment but Intensified it. The only way to avert the judgment Is to turn from their sins. c. Jeremiah rescued by Ahlkam (v. 24). He was a man of such influence *that he was able to interfere at such a critical time. Yesterday, Today AS for the past, let It sleep If it can. "Sleep on now and take your rest," is the gentle voice of Jesus as to the past. Rise, let us be going, lo he that betrayeth me is at hand," is the nest sentence. The past is past.
