Tha Past and Prsssr.t
The best we can fully comprehend
our present situation is to compare
the past with the present and then
judge of the future.
The corner stone and foundation of
humanity and civilization is justice,
equal justice to all, everywhere, at
all times and in all places. Neither
parentage, age or sex can modify jus
tice. , '
There are many acts that today are
counted criminal, that in ancient
times were sanctioned by law and by
church. The only way to account for
It is that our best men are liable to be
mistaken and make mistakes. God
never makes mistakes. He was, He
is and ever will be the same.
Moses was a criminal and had he
not hastily fled would undoubtedly
have been punished. He must have
been converted after that or God nev
er would have chosen him as a me
dium of communication with the
David's' acts were samples of the
most heinous crimes. Yet Solomon,
the wisest man of ages, was the off
spring of David's crime. How won
derful that Solomon should give such
glowing descriptions of virtuous love
as he had hundreds of wives. Such
men today would not be received as
Bible writers. "
Look at the marriage relations in
those days. If God had Intended that
a man should have a hundred wives
and concubines he would have made
provisions in nature for a hundred
girl babies for every boy baby.
Later down they burned wives on
funeral piles of husbands, but never
burned husbands. Burning alive
would "be painful to a man.

As late as 1814 the laws of England
provided for the sale of wives, eilher
hv nublic auction or by private sale.
The transfer was as complete and le
gal as the sale of a cow. mere is a
record in one county or shire of 39
such sales being made in one year.
It was an easy way of divorce. One
John Hall only a month after mar-
riace led his wife by a rope arouna
her neck to the auction block. She
was sold to the highest bidder for two
shillings and six pence, and the rope
for six nence. The auctioneer s tee was
2 pence and the recorder's fee 4 pence,
so the rope paid expenses.
Up to 1830 every state in this coun
try recognized the right of a husband
to whip his wlfe.3 The little state of
Delaware stipulated that he should
not use a stick thicker than a man's
thumb. This was a step toward wo
Two women still live who have doce
more to elevate the race thin any ten
living men. They are Julia Ward
Howe and- Susn B. Anthony. Their
third classmate died only a few dav?
ago Elizabeth Cady StaCnton. Th?
age of each stood between 82 and 85.
Julia wrote the Battle Hymn of the
Republic. Elizabeth called the 'first
woman's meeting ever called in Amer
ica. Susan paid the last two thou
sand dollars to gain the admission of
girls to the Rochester university. With
these in line stands Miss Frances Wil
lard. Now for the future.
Even marriages should be advo
cated. Smokers should marry smok
ers, drinkers should marry drinkers,
libertines should marry prostitutes.
Marriage should be recognized by
law and by conscience as the nearest
relation on earth. The wife should be
made the only heir of the husband and
the husband the only heir of the wife.
In case of mutual divorce everything
should be equally divided. In case of
divorce from crime or vice, the crim
inal should be cut off entirely. Young
people leave father and mother, sis
ter and brother and cleave to each
other that makes the marriage re
lation the most sacred.
Every right and every privilege
granted the husband should be also
granted the wife. She should have
equal voice in government and law
making. Neither nationality, race or
complexion, nor birth or relatives
should give any one human being or
class advantages over others.
