And many a bible tact is incorrectly stated in itsmore frequent mention. Even men who cali themselves bible students rerer to these incorrect tests and incorrect facts as if they were vertible transcripta hom the inspired record. Thus the story of Dean Swift's chanty sermón, preached in a single sentence from the text, "He that gi veth to the poor lendeth to the Lord," has been accepted as widely and as readily as if that text were tobe found in the bible. So again it has been said ten thousand times over that the llehjvwa in Egypt made bricks withc u" straw.although the bible naroS tive says nothi ng of the sort. As recenily as the past month two bible teachers at Mr. Moody's summer school for students, at Northfield, referred to the find ing of ancient brick without straw among the ruma of lower Egypt, as if in confirmation of the truth of this assumed bible story. If men srouid examine the bible text more carefully before they assail it or before they attempt its defense, there would be fewer blunders made in both directions.- Democrat. Wrong again. Mrs. Judge Joslyn, doubting the above item, has invesügated it and finds the quotations as follows: Prov.
