Dr. Dowie's troubles have come
thick ...and fast He has gone
through various tribulations since
he assumed to play the role of the
second Elijah but ot" late his trou-
bles have multiplied. Beginning
with his crusade on the unregener-
ate iu New York" where the howl-
ing mob turns a deaf ear to his en-
treaties to enter the fold of Zioii
"dark disaster has followed fast and
follows fester." And now he see?
Zion City the darling creature of
his fancy tottering to its founda-
tions. Zio!itUe city that was show to
a sinful world what a city built ot?
foundations of righteousness could
do Zioii the city where brother-
hood was to be the bond that united
all inenis found to be a city built on
sands and despite all the prayers
and entreaties of the. prophet ; his
followers refuse to donate the mil-
lion dollars he asked for to prop it
up. The clamoring creditors of the
second Elijah will not be satisfied
with anything but sordid coin and
so Zion must fall.
It looks like the last chapter in a
story of monstrous charlitanisin
"graft" is the American word. It
looks like the closing of the history
of another one of the colossal confi
dence games that humanity in
every age has permitted to be per-
petrated upon it.
What though Dowie sincerely
believed JiimseH whicii is ques-
tionable a real embodiment of the
spirit of Elijah of old. What though
his 'healing touch banished disease
Irom thousands ana ins tiery pleas
for righteousness touched the heart
and changed the lives of scores.
The fact remains that he asserted
claims that no man could make
good. He assumed a superiority
in wisdom and virtue and an author-
ity over bis followers that his char-
acter and his powers could not
The fall of his city is the logical
result that was to be expected.
Dowie the man of burniugeloquence
and a powerful personal magnetism
could attract the multitude and in-
duce men to put their possessions
into his hands: He could arouse
the enthusiasm to create a Zion
City but he did not jwsscss the
practical wisdom to sustain it when
In his pulpit Lis healing in
tongue in the community will be
busy and he will be called upon to
explain and give an account of his
conduct. A man is not at liberty
to govern his actions according to
his notions of propriety but he
must submit to the dictates of the
social arbiters. This is not free-
dom; it is tyrauy of the very worst
A man whose business has made
it necessary for him to travel over
much of 't'ne Chickasaw nation for
the past three years was asked by
the Idler what he thought of the
prospects of this country. "Pros-
pects" said he "I don't know any
c ntutry that has such splendid
prospects before it. I know nearly
every foot of land in this country.
The Washita valley and the numer-
ous creek bottoms contain as fine
lauds as exist any where.
There are of course some rough
places and some inferior soils but
taken as a whole the country can't
e beat. One of the greatest needs
of the country now is for good
roads. There are practically no
roods now but I believe there will
be a movement started this winter
to open the roads along the section
lines. . This vast area of country
is very sparsely settled. " I don' t
believe there is moru than one set-
tler to a section of laud in all the
great region east' and south of
Chickasha. When this . country
Is settled as thickly as Oklahoma
you will easily support a town of
i5ooo population' or more here."
A stranger was speaking to the
Idler about the social life Of Chick-
isha. He was from the north and
was greatly surprised at the con-
ditions he found here. He expect;
id to find some of the wild frontier
life depicted by the story writers
on western life who have never
been west of the Mississippi river.
"The . social . conditions in Chick-
asha" said he "are more like
those in the old longeatablished
communities than any I've ever
seen in a new town. I don't find
any of the border ruffianism that
people . iu the eastern states think
exists here. Your town is orderly
you have good churches and school
and the sentiment for decency and
the highest things in social and in-
dividual life is as strong as I find
anywhere. You have as many cul
lured and refined people as I
in any town of the size. I think
Chickasha surpasses ill these re-
spects any town similarly situated
that I've ever visited." The Idler
ipiite agreed with all the stranger
had to say only remarking that
his observations agreed with t'ose
of all who ever remained in the
town for any considerable length of
seeking a sandwich have wen ac
commodated. ; But the new field ia
a wider one. Tht diner an some
restaurants can now by a new.ui-
v itlon in the "slot" line rest at
eaje while he takes his meals ana
reads complacently between bitr
the religious mottoes cm the walls
for before he sits down he can fo
to a box drop a penny m th slot
and out jumps a key from another
slot. That key opens a closet am
pie enough for his hat and coat. The
vwy hooks on which he hangs his
'.:hes lock also so that even if
Ae door of the closet were oparmd
the articles cannot be hurried away
with by anyone but the owner.
E x spells ei- meaning
without and i-o-no-r spells honor-"
without honor. There you bare It"
;."But exonerate doesn't mean with
out honor. It means literally to un-
load to excolpata." t. - n
? "Oh well print ft any way yow want
It" said the professor crossly "It's
yotir paper and I haven't ay right
to aay what I shall wrltey 1 suppose."
And the professor walked out. still
contending that he waa right. Chica-
