A Vulgar Falsifier

A Vulgar Falsifier,

and let him alone.

Strange, that nearly every man that has answered me, has answered me mostly on the same side. Strange that nearly every inan that thought himself called on to defend the Bible was one who did not believe in it himself. Isn't it strange? They are like some suspected people, always anxious to show their marriage certificate. They want, at least, to convince the world that they are not as bad as I am.

Now, I want to read you just one or two things, and then I am going to let yon go. I want to see if I have said such awful things, and whether I have got any scripture to stand by me.

So shalt thou put away evil."

That is a very good way to raise children. Here is
