grounds were Intelligently tilled, good

“WHAT HAS BK4 OMB OF HEUd”
I'nder the title quoted above the Rev.
George W Shinn, D. D.. dle.dsses in the
N -i*th American Review the doctrine of
futijie punishment as It is being taught
from ihe pulpit and in religious publica
tion at the present time. Not so much
I* beard of hell from preacher or preys now
cu- formerly. Indeed, it is seldom mer.-
ikvm-d in .some pulpits, and when refer
cr;f e Is made to hell it I* simply by w ay
of expressing an intermediate iitk of the
soul after dc-oth. There is never any fire
and brimstone about it. No rhrleking de
mons wleki pitchforks among the lost, or
roast them upon gridirons. The supreme
pirit of hell Is no longer pictured with
hoof and horns and a spear-pointed tail.
. buckling iu giee as he direct* his imps
to pour molten lead over the newly* ar
rived dinner by way of initiation lnro the
on gre gat ion of the damned.
Ail of th. foregoing figure* ond many
others of their kind were made very fa
miliar by preacher* and exhorters forty or
tifty years ago. No sermon was cons id- >
•-red complete until a fearful word-picture
of th< horrors and torments of hell had
drawn, and the sinner had been duly i
warned that such sufferings must lnevlt
nbly be his fate exJept he repent and con
form to the requirements of tho church, i
Human ingenuity was let loose upon the
Invention of descriptions of the torments
if if)#* damned which It was believed to be
Impossible to exaggerate. When words
and similes had been exhausted. It was
-ivlkved that but a faint idea of the terri
il n -of the condition of the lost had
been given. Borne prea hers, among them
Jonathan Ediaards, acquired such power
„( description of the place of eternal fire
arid brimstone that men cried out In hor
ror in the midst of the sermons.
These were Ideas of hell that obtained
from the earliest periods of the Protestant
churches up to within the memory of mid
dle-aged persons of the present. "Now,"
says Dr. Shinn, “almost suddenly men
have well nigh ceased to talk about it.
li has cf-ascd to be urged as a rnotivo for
good living In this life, and men are not
told to prepare themselves here to avoid
it there In the future. In other words,
there has been, If not an actual denial
of hell, a very thorough change of em
phaeis.” And Dr. Bhinn believes that the
pulpit has lost some of Its power because
It . o .seldom appeals to healthy fear.
The movement “for the dissolution of
hell,” Dr. Shinn says, actually began
about the year 1770, with the planting In
this country of the Unlversallsta, who
antagonised tho intense views held by the
old Calvinists. When Henry Ward Beech
er came along he found conditions ripe
for a revulsion from certain religious
theories, and he, It has been said, did more
fhan any other man in the country to
changs the style of thinking of many
preachers and laymen who admired him.
They began to see that the figurative lan
guage of the Bcrlptures had been taken
literally, translated into the grossest ma
terialism, and then added to tintll it* very
extravagance suggested revolt. "But
when the revolt came, those who would
get rid of the materialistic view of hell
have so completely* explained away all of
ihe figurative language In which reference
la made to hell In the Rcrlptures that noth
ing la left." Jn other words, "because
they objected to the view* held, they have
tried to deny the reality back of even the
llgumttve hums in which that reality was
set forth ", Thus, from their standpoint,
bell has lost Its terrors. What has be-
come of hell?
I>r. Bhinn defends the reality behind the
figurative spoeel\. "Let ns grant that the
descriptions of hell are figurative. Let u's
admit lhal men have blundered 111 accept
ing as literal what was Intended to lie
llgurativo. Let us grant that there Is no
in uetlul luko of torment. Yet, afler all,
Is there not something back of the Im
agery? Is there not something real—so
real that men may well strive to- escape
it? Fan It be well with him who posses
hence in his sins?” The law of retribu
tion. he says, is Inevitable. We see It
every .lay in this life. It is one of tile first
Impressions received in Infancy, and as we
grow- older It becomes firmly and posi
tively fixed in the mind. We know that
violations of file laws of nature or of the
statute laws are followed by punishment.
Likewise sin is followed by punishment.
No man can satisfactorily answer all ot
the questions relative to the future Htale.
But "we do know that there Is retribution
for sin for sin unrepented of and unfor
glven. If we imiss hence with a load of
Bin, judgment must surely follow us
wherever we go."
A I.OFAI. OPTION PLANK.
The wisdom of attempting to put a local
option plank in the platform of the Demo.
• •ratio party of this state Is questionable.
It Is prohahle thnt the effort would be
stoutly resisted, and while It might suc
ceed, the chances are that It would be
productive of a good deal of dissatisfac
tion In the party.
It Is well understood now that local op
tion Is the policy of the party. When the
local option law was enacted that under
standing was reached. It Is doubtful If
the sentiment In favor of prohibition Is
as strong nnd as aggressive now ae It
was a couple of years ago. I would
not require much ugltatlon, however, to
make It verj aggressive.
The prohibitionists at present seem dis
posed to let well enough alone. They
arc not satisfied with local option, but
tlWv lire wise enough to see tha more
h is been accomplished by means of It for
the' cause of tcmiierance than by either
the dispensary system or prohibition. The
dispensary s> stem has proven to he a
tallure, and 11 Is well known that In
Maine, where there has been a prohibi
tory law for many yrars, liquor Is sold
openly In the towns. While, therefore,
the prohibitionists are apparently willing
that the liquor questkai shall he dealt
with by means Of local option. It Is prob
able that they would at once become ex
tremely active tu the Interest of a gen
eral prohibition law If an nttempt were

The fact must n<4 he overlooked that
more than a hundred counties have adopt

of these counties the people are practical

There ha* as >et been no authoritative
statement that there is a purpose to get

the kind. The wiser piau ts to let the

Ther<? are only about two dozen con
test* over the seating of delegations that
will come before the Philadelphia Con
ventlon. Ail of thesf- are from the South.
In a real good year, from th- standpoint
of the Southern Kepu dwjn delegate, there
is usually a content from every district.
But this year, with the nomination of Mc-
Kinley a foregone conclusion, thete
"not much business doing" among dele
gates. The contests ar< of course, mere
ly for the purpose of tiring recognition,
so that In the event o: Republican victory
•he successful delega **s can put In a claim
for patronage. Some time ago, by the way,
it was proposed by National Committee
man -Payme that the negro delegation be
excluded from the convention. That prop
osition, however, is not likely to be heard
of again soon, since Chairman Hanna Is
not favorably disposed towards it.
The* Bt. Louts strikers nave adopted a
unique and dcttpicable mean* of prevent
ing women from riding on the street cars.
They have mobbed and denuded several
women, for no other reason than that they
made use of a public conveyance that is
Wider the ban of the strikers’ displeasure.
The outrages have served the double pur
pose of humiliating the victims of the at
tacks end warning ail other women of the
city that they might expect to have their
clothes torn from their bodies in the pub
lic streets if they dared exercise their right
to buy transportation from the street car
company. Such outrageous acts will have
the effect of turning public opinion
against the strikers.

Borne time ago Mr. Churchill and his com
rades-in-arms met at a supper. Among
the assembled officers was a very pom
pous, self-opinionated major, whose rank
commanded for him a respectful heating,
but whose habit of instructing his brelh
ren in matters militarj*. both in and out
of season, made him rathrr unpopular.
Churchill and the aggressive mijor tat
side by side at the table, and the mar
tial potentate voiced his opinion* in Ills
usual manner. Ohurchill bore the inflic
tion dumbly for a season; then, taking ad
vantage of a pause, when the major want
ed to take breath, he said, vefy compla
cently and irrelevantly:
"Do you know*, major, I’met a man this
morning who would gladly forfeit £SO lor
the pleasure of kicking you.”
"Kicking me. sir!" roared the angry
major. "Kicking me! I must ask you to
men lion his name immediately."
"But, the fact is. major, I am rot sure
that I ought to tell you," replied Chureh-g
ill. with well-assumed caution.
"But I Insist upon knowing h!* name at
once, sir!" shouted the truculent offlear,
now re*i with rage.
"Well. sir. I suppose I muM tell you.
It waa a poor young fellow in the hosp -
tal who has loM both hi* les by the
bursting of a shell."

"Remember that time the deacon pray
ed fer rain?" asked the sage of Hawvllle,
according to the Indianapolis Sun. “Well.
I rickoilcct it. Dry spell for about a month
and the crops needed wat*r bad. Sunday
morning an' (he deacon made a long
rraver, an’ ’pon my soul he hadn’t no
more’n finished ’till It thundered. I wa*
set tin' right behind and Hen Ber

whisper io his wife that he’d bet $lO the
deacon had read the weather report, an'
got a kind of a line cn things, but Jlst th*
same the quirk arsw*r to. the prayer
.started quite a uproar In th** church. We
all run to the doors just a* the rain broke
an l the good members (I was a little wild
myself them days) was a shoutin’ halle
lcoyers an* amens In strings. Everybody
was happy an’ smilin'. Well, sir, While
we was a-standin’ there who should

I thought we was pokin' fun at her. She
was mad as a wet h n. anyway, an’ that
settled it. The way she lit into thar
