A tout the .best one, the greatest
intellectually, was the late Huxley
"I do not know" was his trade
mark, The world perhaps admired
'.iiii for his intellectual greatness
and he bad many interested ones to
watch him and to read him and to
study him yet a mighty few of
ihem would be willing to die on
such uncertainties, Men often
times rid hobbies that the Bible
dots not excuse and which enteri
tain, amuse and eyen fascinate many
and especially those "that do not
inovr," but H is safe to say that
when they are nearing the brink of
the darK river they wish for some
thins more certain, even that which
the old, old story tells of.
But to return
The tame authority above quoted
js also : "Since the dawn of civ
ilization the higher types of reason
jng mortals have held the belief
that man is a near relative to tbe
lower animals." There are so few
who endorse this, that their fewness
makes them conspicuous their iao
lation, bo to speak, causes more im
portance to be attached to them and
their teachings than ig justly due.
Such men are usually lionized, and
and their contentions by Unortho
dox, they would not rise above the
horizon of the ordinary.
The evolutionists ought to hate a
platform, on which all could stand.
They differ, and promulgating
widelv different views they carry
conviction to but few.
Professor Edward D Cope,a scien
tific scholar.now connected with the
University of Pennsylvania, has
Jsolved (?) man's ancestry. He has
found an unbroken chain from man
back to a low grade of fishes which
existed in palezoic time. This may
account for some persons being so
"fishy." From the anthropoids ( r
manlike apes, Cope's theory extends
back eight removes, by so doing each
creature on the line of ascent gets an
ancestry not to be much proud of.
How an opossum or like animal
can evolve from a cold-blooded rep
tile or a hoofed-creature from an
oppossum, is certainly a verv "scien
Frederick G Gherke is another
about man's scientist He BPranK into Promi
nence after the death of Darwin in
1882. He adyanced a unique theory.
He says that the ape is not even a
remote cousin to man. This is re
freshing. But he makes it bad
enough ha traces man to bears,
polar bears at that. Says Gherke,
the bear man ;
"My idea is that the earlier bears
came down through Uehring Straits
on icebergs which .drifted to the
shores of tropical Asia. In the
course of ages they took to the cayes
and there shed their heavy coats of
hair The connecting link be
tween what is now man and the bear
beiDg an indescribable manslike bear
or beanlike man, whichever ex
pression suits your fancy best."
Prof. Allen, an Australian scien
tist, argues that the laet. animal an
cestor of man was a kangaroo.
Quite natural for an Australian,
The meanest scientist is a German
savant who recently proved (?) that
man's original ancestor was a plant
louse, and that the human race will
again degenerate to yegetableeating
Dr. J. S. Flagg, a scientist of
Boston, lectured last yar and said
among other things:
"Man, although the 'triumph of eyolu-
( uon, is not necessariiv descended from
the ape, but rather that the ape is a
living example of one of the stages of
man's development from the lower
These great thinkers (?) ought to
get together and promulgate a plat
form of principles on which could
stand, without conflict, manlike apes,
reptiles, opossums, kangaroos, polar
bears and vegetable parasites.
Whenever, reasoning (?) men be
gin to formulate new ideas, speculate
on vital matters and forget that God
"created man in his own image" and
try to set up a new system of religion
and wander away from the Bible and
its teachings and say"! do not know"
then they have no case and amcunt

dangerous networks for themselves,

A NEW TRAVELER,
Last Wednesday G W Bowman
left Denver in a buggy propelled by
gas, and will attempt to reach Chi
cago at a cost not to exceed $5.10.
We have not learned whether he got
there on time or not.
If he succeeded he will receive
from a capitalist in Chicago the sum
of $10,000 for the right to sell the
machine in half of the State of
Illinois. The gas engine weighs
275 pounds and the supply of gaso
Jine may be put under the seat,
Where it mny be drawn upon when
occasion demands. Ee estimates
that a gallon per horse power is
suflicieut for ten hours' run. The
machine complete is designed to cost
just about what a good horse and
harness is worth, and the expen3e of
running ths vehicle is less than the
cost of feeding and shoeing a horse.

The Danger is Averted by Using
"Nearly forty years ago, after
some weeks' of sickness, my hair
turned gray find began falling out
so rapidly that I was threatened
with immediate baldness. Hearing
Ayer's Hair Vigor highly spoken of,
I commenced using this prepara-
tion, and was so well satisfied with
the result that I have never tried
any other kind of dressing. It stop
ped the hair from falling out, stimu
lated a new growth of hair, and kept
the scalp free from dandruff. Only
an occasional application is now
needed to keep my hair of good,
natural color. I never hesitate to
recommend any of Ayer's medicines
to my friends." Mrs. H. M. Haigiit,
