Lecrn to wait life's hardest lrsson,
Conned, perchance, through blinding tears
Vhi!e the heart throbs sadly echo
To the tread of passing years.
Learn to wait hope's alow fruition ;
Faint not, though tbe way &eeiu long ;
There is Joy in each condition.
llearts, though suffering, may grow strong;
Con-ttaat sunshine, howe'er welcome.
Ke'r would ripen, fruit or flower.
Giant oaks owe half their gn-atness
To the scathing tempest's power.
Thua a soul untouched by sor ow,
Aims not at a brighter state ;
Joy seeks not a brighter morrow ;
Only sad heans learu to, wait.
Human strength and human 'greatness
spring not from life's suuuv side ;
Ileroes must be more than driftwood
Floating on a waveless tide.
Saith the Lord : Vengeance is mine ;
I will repay : saith the Lord ;
Ours be the auger divine
Lit by the flash of his sword.
How shall his vengeance be done?
How, when his purpose ! clear?
Must he co.ue down from his tlirote?
Math he no instruments here?
Sleep not in imbecile trnst
'W.ititi for Uod to begin,
Vii.le, growing etrontln the dust,
He?ts tne bruised serpent of sin
Kiht and Wrong both cannot livo
Death-grappled, Which shall we tee?
Strike! Only Justice can give
Safety to all that ehall be.' '
Shame ! to stand palterirg thus.
Tricked by the balancing.odds ;
Strike 1 Uod is waiting for us !
strike ! for the veueeance is God's.
His Arguments and His Methods-
Uecau3e there are oau artists one
canuot condemn art. Because there
are Dad poets, one cannot coraemu
poetry. Because there arebadchiist
ans one cannot condemn Christianity.
There are dividing lines between the
false and the secmiur, and only the
reason which Mr Ingersoll boasts as the
basis of his doctrine is necessary to
throw the distinction under the light
of a calcium. He holds reality respon
sible for the prcteuse. He talks of
genuineness when be means hypocrisy,
It is true that men enter the church as
a means of indiyidual advancement. Ii
is true that tbe church is sometime?
cowardly enough to accept the one-
tenth as a tithe of that which was not
honestly earned: It is true that pre
tentious piety can hold its own at timet;
against the puri'y which should over
throw it. It is true that the mantle or
the just has covered injustice, aud that
fa'sihood has been a uohy partner ol
tvuth. Yet all these do not alloy the
Tl.ey ii. a? deceive, but they dj not
change ordjr an 1 mt.ke ui. truth troth.
TOose who attempt it are the viciiuir.
Those woo suffer it are worse if the)
tre willing knaves; they are to be pit
ied it they are pious dupes. The shams
which Mr. Iugersoll talks of in the
churches, the wars he talks of in the
history of tbe church, have nothing to
do with religion. A church is merely
the expression of truth. If it is incom
plete the truth is not hurt. It is not
less the truth. It is still tbe expression
that is awkward. Because Riphsl is
copied by u fool is he legs itaphsel? B -cause
Gk1 U travestied by man is he
i he less Gd ?
The argument will not 4o. One
must deal with realities, aud not with
their imitation. lie must take things
a& they are represented to be. There
has been bigotry in tbe church. But
there has been i. ne in religion. There
has been persecution in the church.
But there bus been nono in religion.
Persecution is bigotry armed and in ac
tion, and bigotry i tha bastard of te
ller, but that which is beyond it the
great living truth can not be held le-
ponsible It baa not the bar sinister.
T .e v are separate, and. should be so
held. The scornful analysis of the
Soripturti - which tea thought U o
fund of making cannot be applied in
one case aud ignored iu mo; her. To
sustain a s)Ctetn of unbelief there
must be a harmony of method. Justice
can not charge religion with the wrong
doing of its pretended votnries. . It
mutt concede Hint in their wrong-doing
they are doinx that which is ex
pressly forbidden, and therefore, no
matter what their protestations may
bej they are as much the opponents of
religion as those- whtj.opeuly avow infi
delity. Indeed, tl-ey are worse than

of the lnQtii-iliou. It. U uoi fair to
note Mic rtcid uf b!ooi in the middle
ages. It ia not fair to cite martyrdoms
and imprisonments. As arcu neiita of
the cruelty and short-sigli'.edneds of
ambition and fauaticm these are all
effective. As arguuieu s against reli
gion they have n- lorce. Doctrine has
too often been mstde a scape-goat for
conspiracies of State; the Church has
too often been made a city of refuge
for tainted reputations. Yet the High
er Teaching is not chargeable with the
effects of the lower teaching. That
which has been dona iu its name by
men cannot belud at its threshold
The quarrels of creeds, the fauutirism
of forms, the asset tiv. n 83 ot sects,
are ail supplementary. They are the
finite additions to the infinite.
