ATWOOD Socialist Meeting On Saturday evening, Nov. 4th, there will be a socialist meet- ing in Madrid Opera House ad- dressed by Editor O. A. Babcock. No attempt at oratory will be made because the pressure Of the bread and butter struggle hitherto has forbidden that practice in public speaking, as well as that preparation which are essential to finished oratory. The writer be- lieves he has a message, but he holds out no promise of entertain rhent to any who wish merely to be amused. If any Madrid peo- ple wish to hear from him the real issues of this campaign— which are not mentioned by the old parties Decause they are helpless to meet them—he will he very glad to speak to such people. With malice, toward none, but with charity toward all he will discuss the issues of this campaign withoutpersonal attack of any sort anb in a spirit of can- did inquiry rather than in heated argument. Who should not follow Roose- velt \who sold them out\ back into the reactionary Kug-hos camp. The Progresbives. Sermon Of Literary Finish And Of Plain Candid Directness About God And His Unchanging Law- Preaching from James 1, 1*7, •'the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shad- ow of turning,\ Dr. I. Murray Atwood in the Cong'l chuich Sunday morning gave a familar talk in the pleasing style for which he is noted, reconciling the modern scientific ideas with the Christian conception of a loving God. Some things, said he comport ill with the goodness of God idea. James Lane Allen's \Reign ot Law\ shows a young man brought up in orthodox Presbyterian faith who goes to college, learns of the immutable laws of science, loses his faith and goes adrift. The late great and noble Prof Huxley declared that he was un- able to find a particle of scienti- fic evidence that there was such a God as the Christians taught But what is law? A person? No<, simply an unvarying method of doing things. For instance, the mutual attraction of all bodies of matter. It is equally law 10 a man to forgive his eiri'mg broth- er ; or, as Jesus put it, for one to find his life by losing it in an un- selfish endervor. \Order har- mony,.grandeur, guard the Uni- versal throne.\ Law is not 'the power but merely the method by which God does things. Evolution has come to stay and we would better adjust our views to it. It is not a question; of God or law, but God and law. The great Rev. F. W. Robert- son said reverently that lawrules even Diety. Plan and order in the universe are the very best proofs ot God. What if there were no order? What if water failed sometifn'esi to run down hill ? The best defini- tion of an atheist is a believer in luck. It is impossible for God to suspend His laws. God is not free except within His laws, jus. as man is not free except within moral obligation. Why, ihen. do we pray to an unchanging God? So we may \draw nigh unto Hun for it is then only He can ''aia* nigh to us.\ It therefore exalts God to say he actson!\ according to law. Love is law and law is love. Love thinketh uoevii, is not puf- fed up, is not easily provoked; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but re- joketh in the truth ; love thinketn no evil, and beareth all things. Thus believing we can say with Henry Wads-wofth Longfellow, \O God in whom we live and move.\ JOHN SCOTT On Ttueadiay mcwmnig-.at six O'clock \actoiber 31, 1916, occurred the death, of J'oihin.

The New York World, which once was outspoken in its admiration for Mr. Hughes, now declares that the people do not know where Hughes stands, or what he stands for. This Wilson organ had no such criticism to make when Mr. Hughes was gov-* ernor. The World said on May 17, 1910: \He dictated no nominations, controlled no convention, trafficked in no patronage, made no bargains with office-holders. He has 1 awarded no- body Tor supporting him and punished nobody for opposing him. What in- fluence he has wielded over public opinion has come through his appeals to the voters themselves.\ That is the estimate of MT. Hughes given by the World six years ago. It 'is a pretty fair letter of recommendation. Could the World say rs much for President Wilson? Hardly, for the president has done all oZ the things from which the World absolved Hughes.—Kansas City Journal. GUARDSM'EN PAY TH E 'PRICE OF WILSON'S ABASEMENT. Having condoned the repeated murders of Americans by the Carranzlstas, and having abased himself before Carranza, and having aided in placing Carran- za in power, what is Mr. Wil- son's reward? and who pays it? The reward is that Mr. Wilson has to place 150,000 troops on the border to partiafly prevent the raids and murders that his friend Mr. Carranza will not or cannot prevent; and the pay- ment is made by the soldiers who are slain and by the fam- ilies of the guardsmen who go in 'want because their husbands and fathers \have been called to the border to make good Mr. Wilson's refusal to let the regu- lar army administer such punish- ment to the ba. dits as to inspire in them a healthy fear.—From the speech of Col. Theodore Roosevelt, delivered at Lewis- ton, Maine, in behalf of Charles E. Hughes.

Promises nothing except \personsl support\ of the federal amendent for woman suffrage. \Wilson obtained Unpreced- ented prosperity for his country after nine years of depression following the \great Roosevelt panic of 1907. Prevented a great railway strike that would have des- troyed the nation's prosper- ity. •••••••••••••••••••••••O** MartmRutherford Contractor & Builder Madrid Springs - - - N.Y Contracts taken for the con- struction of all kinds of buildings plans and specifications furnished on application.
