Thursday March «th, 1*19.
The Story of Man's
THE promise of the Redeemer, the birth of
Christ and his mission of healing; the estab-
lishment of the Kingdom of God upon the Earth,
the preaching of the Gospel and the Ascension;
the Christian belief in the resurrection of the body,
and the triumph of the redeemed.
Such is the story of that magnificent oratorio,
The Messiah—the wonderful story of Mans Re
demption. It appeals to the loftiest human senti'
ment, and to universal religious devotion.
The great arias from The Messiah—you can feel
their wonderful, exalting inspiration in your own
home if you own
%e NEW EDISON
"The Phonograph with a Soul"
Elijah too, and the other oratorios that have be'
come immortal—The New Edison will Re-Create
them all for you. And the Re-Created voices
you will hear singing these greatest of all religious
arias, you will be unable to distinguish from the
living voices of the same artists if ever you are
fortunate enough to hear them in person.

36TH COMING SOON.
Washington, Feb. 28.—The first

on their way back to Amreica.
The Thirty-sixth division Is com-
posed of national guardsmen from

ule of the dates on which different
divisions will return from France
did not Include the Oklahoma guards-
According to an announcement by
the war department today, the trans-'
port Roelus will arrive at Newport,
News one week from tomorrow.
March 8. The Roelus Is carrying 3.-
251 men. and of these 1,366 men and
34 officers compose the 131 Fie'.d ar-
The men will be sent to Camp
Bowie. Texas, and their prompt dls
charge la anticipated.
No further information regarding
the return of the remainder of the di-
vision was available at the war de-
partment today, but officials there In-
dicated their belief that the men will
be back in this country in a short time,
coming a few units at a time Instead
of In a body.
More Oklahoma men also will ar-
rive on the same day the Roelus docks.
The battleship New Jersey Is bring-
ing 1.074 officers and men attached to
casual companies. Some of them are
from Oklahoma and Texas.
THE GREAT BOON.
The boon of peace is good as wheat,
succeeding years of Badness; it took
the coldness from our feet, and filled
our hearts with gladness. All day I
speak about the boon, in crisp, well
chosen phrases; at night 1 sit beneath
the moon, and boost the same like
blazes. It's good to wake at dawn,
indeed, and cut some sprightly capers,
and not be half afraid to read the war
news in the papers. It's good to wan-
der through the day and not hear peo-
ple Saying. "Alas! Alack! The news la
bad! The Huns are busy slaying!"
It's good to walk abroad once more,
and meet the early risers and hear no
reference to gore, to nutty kings and
kaisers. Some things are slightly out
of plumb, and kickera are disgusted,
but reconstruction soon will come, and
things will be adjusted. We have the
good old boon of boons, the dove of
peace Is soaring and he's not worth
two picayunes who spends the long
day roaring. We can't get back in
half a day to where the rumpus found
us, but with the good old boon in play
no problems can confound ja.
