The! sta'tement, oj course, was made in (pood! faith, but it is so far from theliruth that it pught not to be allowed to stand uncorrected. TJje official figures in the ofRce of the iCounty Clerk show that lola's higli' Ude in the matter of population wasi'in 1907, when the census returned ^0,885. The last census taken nea^y a year ago. shows a population of ts904,—and it ;would almost cer-' taip|y be two or three hundred greater now. But at Ilje worst the figures shov^ that lola has lost fewer than thrM thousand people In eight years, instead of 6,000 in; six years. Bi3t here is a sirtgujar fact, and it is an ; interesting and Important one in vioy^ of the, discussion now pending in 'rt^gard to the neecj of a new high school building. In March 1907. the total attendance lii an the schools of Ibla was 2,664,;while in February of tBIs year, 1915, -jt was 2,988. That Is say the total' enrollment of our BCho 'pIs right now shows 324 more pu. .pilsijln than were enrolled in 1907 wheJj the population of the city was neatly 3,000 greater The enrollipent in- iSin high school alone in March IMOJl, was 207, wlrlle in 1915, it was 321.;: That accounffe for 114 of the total i increase so thrft the enrollment in fhe ^rade, schools right tiow must be 211 greater than it was In 1907. 01: course the total enrollment is al•way^ greater than the number actual ly il school, for 'some students are necessarily enroUejil twice. But "the avetBge daily attendance reports contain-^ no duplications, and this report for the month of.Marc?., 1907, shows in gll the schools 2,050.8 pupils, and fprjhe month 6f February, 1915, lj93[5.7,—a loss oflonly 112 pupils In thei^face of a los^ of nearly 3,000 in . thle.'^total population. k ^ether we take the total enroll- mert or the averaige daily attendance, tbeae are really .-surprising figures, tutrthey are official, having been tak- .'eri from the reports on file in the of- liceiof the Superintendent. The ex- .pla^ation, perhaps, lies partly in the /fact that in 1907 there were iii lola a gi ?eat many young men without families', and partly ib the fact that the trusncy laws iar^ more rigidly eii- forl^ed now than tljey were then. B|lit whatever the reason may be, thefie stand the facts, the stubborn, officjial figures,! showing that In spite of ^>ur loss in. population the school enrollment has actually increased, .'notjlonly in the High School, but in • thegrade schools well. The argu- • merit that we shoiild not extend our schpol facilities because of our declining population, therefore breaks dow^, stnce the school population Is in ^ct Increasingnrather than dimin- ishitig,—and it is the school |)oi)ula- - tioO; for whom sfcbool hou.ses are ' built. • "Die present legislature has at least one good measure to its credit, and thai is the'one pfoviding for the exemption of mortgages froni taxation, and; levying instead a fee of fifteen cenig for each hundred dollars an- jju^ly. There never was a law which ImiSiEed so heavy a penalty upon honest^ as the ojd law requiring the hol|a ^8 of a mortgage to pay tax up­ on'ft at Its full valuation. There never *ras a .law either which did so • mu^h to make mohey high and hard to ftet on the part or those who had only I real estate security to offer for it.^?Tlke new law piighi to make money ich^aper for the Kansas Farmer -whc is obliged to; pjace a mortgage t upp^ his land",: anil it is certainly a measure of Justice: tp those who tell thei 'truth tP the tax assessor. Tile Wichita Beacon says that \Vil- Us Gleed, attorney fpr the Bell Tele- pbP|ie Cpmpany, (Jrew the Public Utilities bili which has been before the Legislature, and ^ intimates that Mr. Gleed purposely inserted corpo- ratlpn jpkers in it wfiich resulted in its rejection by tke l^kisUtui^^; ITIie Topeka Capital says the:;bill 'iffts.wrlt.' ten by the Senate Committee whicli has been investigating the subject for two years, that two members of the present Utilities Commission and the commerce counsel fpr the Commis- sipn approved the bill and that it was fought for by a number of Senators whom nobody had ever charged with corppration sympathies. The Beacon must have been misinformed. » $ H»« f « « mm m mm » « « » « «• .. * $ .4 SATURDAY SEBXOX. ^ * . • — - * * By Rev. J. T. Sharman Of the * * First Baptist Church * $ ' • ******* There Is this tp be said for the Initiative and Referendum- resolution Just passed by the Kansas State Senate,—it is as nearly innocuous and Ineffective and there.'ore as nearly harmless as such a measure well could be. NevertHteless it is to be hoped that the House will dispose of it as it has disposed of those that have preceded It.—by a good vigorous kick delivered at the threshold of the back door. Kansas is altogether too progressive a State to tie itself to such a body of death as the I. and R. A Fort Scott man died the other day while helping hts wife do the washing. And the'press of the State seems iibout equally divided as to Ahether the man should bfe regarded is a Horrible Warning or a Shining •Example. Germatiy has acted on the theory hat the way to avert war»is to be ;)repared for it, and England has pro- clseded upon the opposite theory. And tiow each country is accusing the oth- Rr of attacking it. The election of ex-Congressman .Murdock to the chairmanship of the Bull Mose party in -no way contradicts his declaration that he has retired from politics. * KANSAS CLIPS AND COMMENTS * * • The Pleasant Hill Times is leaving the impression that even dogs down that way read the newspapers. When John Elliott Ipst his valuable cpllie lie put an advertisement in the Times. A few hours after the paper came out the dog returned. ' Interesting itein from the Ava Herald: "Jennie Jones says she feels as melancholy as a sick rat since Tom Carrots is gone." It's a whole Iqt easier for a man to forget his friends than his enemies.— Tom Thompson. Oh, cut out the vain repining, cease thinking of dolcg and doom! Come out where the sun Is shining, come out of the cave of gloom. Come out of your hole and borrow a package of joy from me, and say to your secret sorrow, "l/ve no longer use for thee!" For troubles which are deluding, are timorous beasts I say; they stick to the gent who's brooding and flee from the gent who's gay.—Walt Mason. A negro woman died at Neosho Falls last week who was sold ten times as a slave. A tactful woman can henpeck her man and make him like it.—Tom "Thompson. A Kansas editor ivrote that a certain man wag a bona fide candidate for mayor and the printer set It up "bonehead' candidate." Dave Leahy says that the printer's mind-readine power is marvelously developed. We are not so much interested in the printer, however. What we want' to know is what happened to the editor when the paper came out.—Lindsborg -News. A hint from thie Western School Journal: If a boy pr girl cannot read, write or spelj well on leaving school, it matters not what else he or she may know, the education is lamentably incpmplete. The trouble with the religious world is that too many persons are hunting for- the Jitney route.—I^w- rence Journal. > Enthusiasm i^ a good thing but in many cases should be regulated by a safety valvc^^Oakley Gazette.

Text: "And in Hell, he lifted up his eyes being in torment."—Luke 1625. . introduction: It Is unpleasant to speak on this subjelct^ but as your min ister it is my duty to warn ypu of dangers ahead as well as to minister to you the pleasant thingg of life. There are many false teachers who eliminate hell altogether, others who dp not believe in any future punishment for sin; BP to the law and to the testimony. We believe in Heaven, and comfort our hearts in that belief. The same source teaches that there is a hell. If no hell why is one recorded in the word of God, if no hell why preach one, why not build a monument over the graves of Tom Paine and Bob Ingersoll? Let us be consistent and acknowledge there is a hell because God says so. I. You say: "All the hell there is Is what a fellow gets In thig present life." A gentleman walking down Clark street was seen to take some money out of bis pocket. It was instantly snatched by a sneak thief who bolted down the street and not noticing that the drawbridge, was open plunged into the river. He was rescued with a rope and when placed on .terra flrma wag arrested, tried and sent to ijail for his crime. One would have thought that to have fallen into :the rivet with Its filth and slime was pen alty enough, but that was simply the result of his folly, his imprisonment was the penalty for his crime. No man caii transgress the laws of the state or of nature and not nuffer for It in this present life, but when this life Is over unless he accepts the pardon offered him througn Jesus Christ he must give an account to God in the life to come. II. The greatest difficulty arising in the understanding of the subject is the mistake of mistranslation. The original language of the Old Testament was Hebrew, and of the New Testament Greek. The Hebrew word trim which we get our English "Hell" was "Sheol," and the Greek word was "Hades," and should have been translated so in our King James Authorized Version as it appears in the Revised ersion. It refers to the place of departed spirits, although it is most frequently rendered Hell in our A. V. and sometimes grave, and sometimes l>it. Sheol and Hades, do not mean hell at all as we speak of hell today, but is the place where all the departed spirits go at death, both good and bad. In Phil, 16:10 speaking prophetically of Jesus, we read, "For thou wilt not leave my soul In hell, neither wilt Thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption." Sheol is meant, not grave. In our text, "And in hell he lifted up his eyes being in torment," Hadesj not grave is meant here. Before the resurrection Sheol or Hades had two compartments. Paradise, where the gppd spirits went, and the Ipwest, Hades or hell, where the unrepentant spirit went. This Is illustrated in our lesson, "The rich man in the lowest Hades, Lazarug in Abraham's bosom in Paradise. Also illustrated in Christ's words to the thief, "This day shalt thou \3 with me in Paradise." When Jesus arose from the dead. Paradise with its good spirits was transferred to heaven. Eph. 4:8-10. "Wheri he ascended on high he led captivity captive, and gave^gifts to men." Now that he ascended what is it that he also descend ed first into the lowest parts of the earth. He that descended Is" the same also that ascended up far above all heavens." Also compare Psl. 16.10 with Acts 2:52. What becomes of the spirit of the believer at death? See what Paul says, II Cor. 5:8, in Phil. 1:25; 11 Cor.j 12:24; compared with Acts 14:19-20. At death the spirit of the believer goes to Paradise where Jesus is. Are the wicked in the final place of punishment? Not yet. After the millenjal reign of Christ upon the earth for one thousand years. The wicked will be rescued to appear before the Great White Throne for Judgment. Rev. 20: 5-15. The lake of fire, wherever It is and whatever it is, li the final abode of the wicked. III. What kind of a place is hell? The churches are often charged with teaching that hell is a place of torture. It is false: Nowhere does the Bible say that hell is a place of tortured And torture is identified with cruel and wicked acts of veng- ance. It belongs to the martyrs of Christ who weite stoned to death, sawn asunder, treated for their faith as set forth in Heb. 11:35. It was illustrated in the inquisition where Christians were placed upon the rack, when their flesh was pierced with hot irons, when they'were burned at the stake, rather than deny Jesus Christ as their Saviour. That was torture and there is nothing in scripture that says the wicked ire to be tortured. It does gay they will be brmented day and nljght forever. The rich man was in torment. It is a pli ce where tlie worm dieth not and the Ire is not quenched.What is that torment. A memory. "Son remember." The stinging remorse of memor^. will be hell enough for anybody, "rhe reaping of the harvest. Hell is not a place where men go for vthat they have done, but for what Aey are. Separation from God and everything that is beautiful and true.j j IV. How could a loving God create people to be damned. He didn't do it. He created mankind to love Him, to obey Him, and to enjoy him forever, and at the saine time with the powers of choice, to choose between good and evil. More than that be sent Jfesus to blockade the way to Hell, to offer to the world pardon for 'sin and eternal life.

It is a peaceful victory that will shed its practical benefits into every channel of American industry and commerce. For the first time in many years the balance of gold exchange is in favor of this country. In other words, European purchases of American commodities have greatly exceeded American purchases of European commodities during the past year. This is a condition which must benefit the United States because Europe's purchases niust be paid for with European gold. This gold coming intq the United States will be distributed through all trade channels. Such a situation should result in great business prosperity. Read THE LITERARY DIGEST of March 6th (on sale everywhere to-day) and you will find a complete description of this important developmeot, including a reflex of public opinion as shown by the newspaper press of Europe and America, regarding it. THE DIGEST makes plain to every reader the tremendous importance of this rare situation in its relation to the business conditions of the .United States. Has Japan Designs Upon China? THE LITERARY DIGEST of March 6th, also sheds a flood of light from authoritative sources upon this phase of world-politics in the Eastern Hemisphere which had nearly escaped comment because of public attention being focused upon Europe and the war. i If you would have an interesting, impartial chronicle of the war in its many-sidedness, by all means join the million American readers who eagerly read THE LITERARY DIGEST each week. It is not only for war-news that it is so widely appreciated in American homes, but because it deals with all other news of importance in the fields of foreign and domestic Politics, Science, Invention, Religion, Literature, Musip, Drama, Sports, Trade, and Commerce.
