WHAT THE SCRIBES SEE AND HEAR
Rov. Powlck's Interesting Sormou
in tho Methodist Episcopal'
Church on "Tno Wages
Tho sermons on Sunday at tho Methodist
Episcopal church woro from tho text "For
tho wagos of sin is death, but tho gift of
God is eternal lifo through Josus Christ our
Lord. Horn. VI-23. Attontion was di
rected to tho three pivotal words of tho
text: Sin, Death, Life. Men hold very
superficial viows of sin. Christ lodgod sin
not only in tho outward act but in tho sin
ful desiro. "Thou shalt not commit adul-
torj" means according to tho sormon upon
tuo mount: Jic that looketh upon a
woman to lust after her hath committed
adultery with her already in his heart
"Tho thought of foolishness is sin." Wn
often find very superficial views ot death,
which aro anti-scriptural and grossly ma
torialistic. That "death is tbo wages of
sin" is not a matter of dispute all are
agrood upon this point. Hut what is death?
"In tho day that thou eatsst thereof thou
shalt surely dio." liut tho doath inflicted
was not inconsistent with continued ox
istonco. Tho scriptures frequently spoaU
of thoso who aro both dead and alivo, but
in different sonses, at tho samotimo: "She
that livoth in ploasuro is dead whilo she
livoth" awako thom that slcopost and arise
from tho doad dead in trespasses and in
sins. "By ono man sin entered into tho
world and death by sin and so doath passed
upon all tnon." But whethor this moans
bodily or spiritual death, or both, is not
oxplicitly stated, Nor is it so easy to do
cido, as wo aro wont to think, whether
bodily death was included in the ponalty of
sin or whethor it was in tho original con
stitution of nature and only received its
"sting" from sin. Certain it is that bodily
doath did not pass upon either Enoch nor
Elijah. Tho only definition of death
which tho scriptures afford is' this "to be
carnally-minded is death tho doath which
is tho wages of sin. Carnality fieshliness
worldliness is death becaueo it oxcludes
from companionship with tho inflnito.
With this"! definition of death agreo tho
scriptural definitions of otornal life: "to
be spirtually minded is life and poaco.
"This is lifo eternal that thoy might know
Thoo tho only truo God and Jesus Christ
whom Thou hast sont." Thoro is no con
fusion hero botweon questions of oxistonco
and non-oxistonco and questions of lifo and
doath. And a hotter understanding of
certain old testament passages which woro
read and explained which havo soemed to
contradict theso definitions would havo
Bhown that thoy havo nothing to do with
thom. Paul's definitions agreo with such
passages as "he that believoth in tho Son of
God hath ovoriasting lifo, and he that
livoth and bolieveth in mo shall novor die."
liut if lifo and doath aro identical with ox
istonco and non-oxistonco "ovorlasting
lilo" does not last forever and its possessor
shall "novor dio" till ho dios. Spiritual
death oxclusion from companionship and
fellowship with God Is tho "wages" tho
daily pay for to the Greok signifies of sin.
Its final doom is something olso oven over

Valunblo (?) Corner Lots Freo
One of the latest dodges for trapping un-
vary mortals is the offer of a corner lot in
Florida to overy ono who will solve a rather
simple spocies of rebus. As soon as- tho
answer is forwarded to tho New York
agoncy, a printod circular Is returned stat
ing that the guesser is entitled to an ex
ceptionally ftno lot valued at $100, and an
a (joining ono valued at ffJOO, which will be
knocked down at tho trifling sum of $10
considering tho brilliancy of tho solver of
tho rebuB, along with $1.25 as a fee, pre
sumably for tho payment of freight. Jutt
how many corner lots of this sort the fako
firm has disposed of it is Impossible to esti
mate, but judging from tho gonerally
gullible nature of human kind tho fakir
will eoon bo able to rotiro on an ample
fortune. Tho remoteness of Florida and
iho absurdity of purchasing a $100 lot for
$11.25 never seems to dawn on the impress
ible bargain hunters. Thoy would buy an
orange grovoin Iceland or a French flat in
heavon if some oily-tongued senmp should
assure them that it bolonged to A job lot,
with only a few more loft, and that it was
being sacrificed at one-tenth of its original
cost out of personal admiration for the fi.re-
mentioned bargain hunter.
