Religion, Mr. Bryan impressed up- on his hearers, was the most prac- tical thing in which man had to deal, He did not wish to discuss politics but wished rather to emphasize patriotism running through all the tke parties and that the people were united in any crisis.

"I passed through a period of scepticism myself, when I was at volunteered Mr. Bry- an autobiographically, "and I have bee-i glati ever since that I became a member of a church before I left hoivc for college. The years that a man spends, at college are the critical years of his life, when he'.is coming into his power, when he is stronger -than ever afterwards, and when ?he, thinks he understands more than he ever does, understand in all his life." (Laughter.) It was when he was at college that he studied dif- feient theories of creation and be- came a little mixed. So in his per- plexity he went back to G-enesis and f-iund it written, "In the beginning the heaven and the and he decided to stay there inr.'I lie found a theory of creation that went back to the beginning. "And I've been standing there ever (Laughter and applause.) We must commence somewhere and begin with something and the Christian be- gins with God. And I care not how Ions; you draw out the process of creation so long as God stands back of it you cannot shake my faith in (Applause.) After disposing of the nebular the- ory of creation, he turned to the doc- trine of evolution to which he said he did not attach as much import- ance as some did. "I am not yet he observed, "that man is a lineal descendant of the lower animals and yet I'm not going to quarrel with anyone who wants to be- lieve that. If anyone can findt pleasure or pride in tracing his ancestry back there I would be the last to deprive him of the satis- faction he gets out of it. (Laughter.) All I say is this, that, while you may trace your ancestry back -to the monkey if: you please (laughter) you shall not connect me with your fam- ily tree. (Laughter.) There are Sev- eral objections to this -theory. It is a dangerous theory, for, when a man links himself with the monkey, it then becomes a" serious question whether he is going towards him or coming from him, (laughter) and I don't know any argument that can be produced that tends .to prove that man is an improved monkey, that may not be used just as well to prove that the monkey is a degener- ate man. And if I had to accept one theory.or the other I would rather believe that all monkeys come from some men than-believe that all men come from some monkeys." (Laugh- ter. He recognized certain physical peculiarities in which man resembled the beast, but man had a mind as well as a body, and. a soul as well as a mind, and the mind was greater than the body and the soul was greater than the niind. (Applause.) Fairbairri, in his "Philosophy of Christianity" laid down a perfectly sound proposition when he said that it was not sufficient to explain man as an animal, it was necessary to ex- plain man in history. They might take any writer upon the subject whom they pleased and they would find that, when he had traced the germ of life lay step until he came to the lowest germ of 'which man had knowledge, he admitted that upon that point scientists differed. And those who denied the creative .act; of God were divided into two schools, the school that -believed that the first germ of life came from an- other planet, and the school that be- lieved in spontaneous generation. The first proved conclusively that it could not have come from spontaneous gen- eration and the second proved just as conclusively that it could not have ,come from another planet. can just as easily believe that God created man as he is as that millions of years ago He created a germ of life and endowed it with power-to become a man. I prefer to accept the theory which will have the best influence on man's life." If man- kind ever accepted the doctrine that for millions of years had God never touched a human life, it would para- lyze faith and prayer and destroy the f of God's presence in Good Residence Lots In Block D, P9uth of Barracks each Only a few left T MONEY TO LOAN I FIRE INSURANCE TlieC.
