Pulpit Review of Current Events by
Re?. Thomas Dixon, Jr.
New York, Dec. 7. Rev. Thomas
Dixon, Jr., pastor of the Twenty-tliird
street Baptist church, was greeted this
morning by the usual crowded house in
Association hall. The sermon was the
beginning of a new series for December
on the subject "What Is Religion?"
The sermon was preceded by the fol
lowing review of current events:
The real sensation of the year 1890
Is the advent of the National Farmers1
alliance. It is no mushroom growth.
It is here to stay. It is the resistless
movement of millions under the op
pressions of centuries. Its motive
power is social, economic, religious
and political. The advent of them em
battled hosts is the most pregnant
event of this generation. It is the be
ginning of
that will shake this continent and move
the world.
The first time they gathered around
the ballot box was the 4th day of last
November. They polled between two
and three million votes, elected the
governors, sent forty men to congress
scared the life out of hundreds they did
not send.
What is
ot this great movement?
1. It is the protest of the patient
burden bearers of the world, who have
toiled through weary years, struggling
beneath the wrong of economic and po
litical superstitions. In America the
farmers have literally become the
beasts of burden oi the nation. Their
business has been to feed over 65,000,-
000 people, together with the hosts of
the old world, with the products of the
year's work, and then through the win
ter eke out a miserable existence wrest
ling with their
While they are doing this we laugh,
and grow fat, dance and make merry
in this, and bet how much they will
make next year, buy and sell their
crops fifty times before they are plant
ed, and charge old "Hayseeds1' with
all our losses.
The question is whether these men,
the freest of the free, the authors of
this country's liberty, shall assert their
rights and obtain justice, or degener
ate into the condition of tenants and
serfs. The conditions of labor in all
other industries have undergone mar
velous development and change during
the past hundred years. The farmer
works under the same stern conditions,
perishing in the midst - of boundless
prosperity, for others. He has deter
mined to effect a change in these con
ditions, and re-adjust himself on a liv
ing basis to the new civilization.
2. This movement means the
as masses of the farmer as a farmer.
It means the assertion of the manhood
of the yeomen of the nation. This is
real education. The accent of our ed
ucation has hitherto been to get on,
"to rise." We have been taught to
climb out of the -humble sphere in
which we were born into some so-called
higher sphere. The smith learns to
despise his anvil, and the clodhopper
to look with contempt upon the plow.
They rise to "higher" things. They
become lawyers, and doctors, and
preachers and bankers, railroad men
and politicians. We now have fully
eight million men in this country edu
cated to be presidents of the United
States. We only need about a dozen
presidents in a hundred years an aw
ful waste of i-a'w material.
The farmers are learning and teach
ing it to their children, in this organi
zation, that the work on the farm is
as sacred, as noble, as honorable as
that of any sphere in life. Women,
too, are admitted to the onler. Well
they may. There are more farmers'
wives in the insane asylums of Ameri
ca than any other class. They have
actually recognized the fact that
A reporter once asked an old farmer
in the west what he thought about the
question, "Is marriage a failure?" He
replied, "What, marriage? Well, let's
see. lhere s Lucmdv o-ets nn in th

it s a great success, sir!" Ah! these
patient, sad-faced, -veary millions of
women! Ihe pathos of their lives!
ihey have entered this organization
with their cheeks flushed with hope.
many of them for the first time in their
life. May God lead and bless them.
3. This movement means
It is in this principle of socialism that
the order has its strongest foundation
l hey are rjpledged to co-operate with
each other in the production of econ
omic goods, and not only so, but to co
operate in the distribution of these
goods. The alliance stores for supplies
are a prominent leature of their work
lhese stores contain the germ idea of
the great industrial co-operative so
cieties or workingrnen in Great Britain
They are asserting in life the principle
that it is better for men to fight for
each other than against one another.
rm i
Ainfjr ,re teaming me secret OI asso
ciated power that in union there is
strength. It is in the light of this fact
that we solve the apparent paradox
that while they cry out against trusts
and monopolies, in the same breath
they demand that the government press
its functions to the very verge of state
socialism. lhese cries are not incon
sis tent. They are the assertion of
fundamental principles. They recog.
nize the important faot that govern-
meat is not something separate from
the people, but when normally admin
istered is simply the people governing
themselves-that it is not a power to
be forced, but a power to be utilized
for the happiness of all.
4. The organization means brother
hood. It is a fraternal and benevo
lent order with principles of love and
fraternity, wide as the world, universal
as the rose.
The fifth and sixth articles in their
declaration of purposes,
DENCE, read thus:
, "5. To constantly strive to secure
entire harmony and good will to all
mankind, and brotherly ' love among
ourselves. V
"6. To suppress personal, local, sec
tional and rational prejudices, all un
heal thful rivalry, and all selfish ambi
tion." i
An ideal as high as heaven an echo
of the life of Jesus of Nazereth. They
have determined to "bear one another's
burdens and so fulfil the law of Christ."
They pledge themselves to alleviate
suffering and pain, to care for the
widows and educate the orphans of
their dead. This is climbing the
heights of life. This is pure religion
undefiled. -
They have gone into politics not be
cause they are a political organization.
They have been ili
because their principles were social,
economic and religious.' All social and
economic questions have become polit
ical questions and all political ques
tions are religious. The political
arena is where all the questions of to
day and to-morrow must be fought and
settled. Let no man deceive himself
by believing that this organization is
but a passing episode in politics. Re
member its foundation is not primarily
political, but social and economic. It
is the embodiment of grand moral
ideas it is the movement ot a revolu
tion. It will not go backward. May
God give its leaders wisdom.

A Plague of Mice.
With reference to the plarue of
nice in central Australia, xne aiun-
doora correspondent of the Kapun-
da Herald writes as follows: "On the
2d inst. I visited the wheat-stacks,
and I find that over eighty bags of
loose wheat have been scraped up to
day in moving only a small portion
of the stack. During my visit the
wheat was running from tho stack
in such quantities as to sound like
steady rain. Parts of the. outside of
the stack that had been cleared,
now have the wheat on the out
side three feet high. Hundreds
ot bogs within sight are almost en
tirely empty; many, in fact, do not
contain a hatful. Thousands ot the
bags will never be used again,
and a great quantity ot the
wheat is destroyed. The five
mice were in such numbers that
it was only necessary to lift an emp
ty sack and one hundred or more
would be prancing about your feet.
The dead mice are past counting; the
trround is strewn with them, and in
many places there are thousands in
a heap; so that the smell is horrible,
and caused me to dispense with one
sense by making a handle of my na
sal organ when a couple of chains

morning the men found the mice in a

small ueiaciieu hiuck. uenu iu me in
tervals between the bags in such
numbers that at least 10,000 must
have been taken out that morning.
From Saturday to Monday morning
quite sixty bags of wheat ran out of
one of the stacks. A larmer had
140 bags in his barn, and when he
cleared it out he found that only ten
of the bags were worth mending, and
captured a wheelbarrow lull ot mice
during the operation. Three boys,
the eldest being 12, spent their last
holiday m catching mice, and they
caught 6,520. Several farmers have
been catching 0.000 a week, ana a
lriend of mine caught twenty-four in
agin bottle, It contained a little oil.
and thev went after it until the bottle
was full, and the top one had been
partly eaten by his comrades. They
irequently eat each other, and the at
Fort Broughton, I bear the rats eat
the mice. If the weather contmnes
cold e shall get rid of them by the end
of August. Already the cold and wet
weather of last month, which save
us three inches of rain, has killed
vast numbers. If the thermometor
falls below 50 degrees Fahrenheit the
mice become very sluggish so slow
that they can easily be caught, and
they then come out to feed in the day-
time when the sun shines. Ihe leert
they particularly require must be
somewhat scarce, for they are very
bold at present." '
k Boston Lkdr Tries a Successful Experiment

The lady was in despair. She expect
ed that her &02 would fall upon the
lamb; but, having in the past had
much experience with pets, she said
that if this catastrophe was to happen
she did not propose to have it post

her head, and, departing, left the pair

to admit now that the trial proved suc
cessfulthat she had no idea that it
would, and that she expecled to find
the lawn strewn with the dismembered
fragments of the lamb. When a few
hours later she returned, however, the
dog was found to have taken the lamb
into his especial favor and under his
especial protection. He lay down with
it, followed it about and seemed to
have become uncommonly fond of it in
a way not at all allied to carnivorous
instincts. In short, the lamb and the
dog became the closest of friends, and
as long as the two did live they con
tinued to dwell together in peace and
And the remarkable part of the tale
is that from that day the dog no more

can't llck yer, so she gets the best of
yer that way.
If yer don't do what a girl tells yer.
she says yer horrid. I drather be
horrid than be soft. If you do what a
girl tells yer, you will do all sorts of
foolish things.
Girls can be good in school every
day if they feel like it I shud think
they would git tired nd have to do
sum thing wonse in a while; 1 know a
feller does. Girls say fellers acis
orfull, but when a girl gits a goin,' it
she acts orfier than any feller durst.
They don't care for nothing.
If a girl wants a feller to carry her
books home, she ain't satisfied unless
she gits the same feller the other girls
want, whether she likes him or not.
Girls is great on having secrets. I
mean telling secrets. They m ke a
secret out of nothing at all, and then
tell it round to all the other girls,
orful quiet, just as if it was sumthing
Girls olwys' git their goggr'ry
lessons better than h feller, but if they
are going anywhere they are sure to
git lost.
If two fellers has a fite, the girls all
go for the feller that licks, no m itter
whether he is good for anything else
or not
If a girl don't feel like doing a
thing, you can't make her, no m-itter
whether she had orter or not If she
won't, she won't, and she will git out
,t it somehow. That is all I know
about girls this time. Metropolitan.
