The friends of Conductor W. G. Reddin and
Dispatcher W. B. Mills are having a bushel
of amusement at the expense of these two
young men. And it all came about from the
virtuous resolution of the conductor to treat
his phaeton to a washing. Last Friday after
noon was the time chosen and the Republican
river the place of cleaning. The dispatcher
went along as referee. All went as merry as
marriage bells until an effort was made to
drive onto one of the numerous sand-bars in
the river, south of the middle bridge. Alas,
the treacherous quick-sand settled about the
wheels of the vehicle and the legs of the horse
and the boys “were stuck” in midstream. The
horse in its flounderings broke the harness
and walked out of the vehicle, dragging the
conductor through the water holding to the
ribbons with a death grip. Still the phaeton
had to be rescued. The quicksand baffled all
attempts to pull it out, and nothing remained
for the boys to do but to wade boldly in and
dig it out This they succeeded in doing by
dint of hard work, in an hour or so. But in
the operation both were pretty thoroughly
soaked, and it is most likely that such jobs
will be performed in the future by the young
men strictly by contract or proxy.
Mr. Editor:—In your issue ol March 2d
you tell the story of a young woman who hes
itated to go on in the ceremony that would
have made her a wife, because she did not
wish to “vow obedience" to her husband. It
was only when the matter was placed before
her in its “proper light;" that it was an “idle
and inoperatiye form,” by some married wo
men present, that she consented to a'low the
ceremony to proceed. Poor little thing! Poor
married women! Worthy disciples all of their
Washington trousered goddess. Now it is in
defense of that word “obey,” and also in de
fense of home—prospective—brides who may
not be so fortunately!?) surrounded by worthy
matrons, capable and willing to explain away
the antiquarianisms of the marriage service
that I write.
The term “obey" has but one meaning,
whether used religiously, politically, juridi
cally or otherwise. Before priest or poten
tate, police judge or preacher, “obey," in the
highest interpretation, in this case the only
interpretation of the term, is the willing ac
ceptance of a state of being in conformity
with absolute right A mechanical temper of
mind, obedience to mere custom, outword
impulses rather than inward spirit recogniz
ing no higher law than the opinions of others,
no higher authority than that which drives the
galley slave, is not obedience, is not “to obey.”
It is simply slavishness, making of one’s self
an echo, a machine, a “reel shaken by the
wind,” a “straight staff bent in the pool."
The development of mind illustrates the
case in point very nicely. We are born into
a state of lawlessness. A child knows noth
ing about law, it has no notion of law: it is
a little savage, very lawless; volatile; gaseous
rather than solid. Little bv little it begins to
learn law, natural law. As of heat, by burns;
of gravitation, by falls. In society it learns
other laws, of school, state, society. If these
laws are obeyed the man is called moral; if
disobeyed he is immoral. Now custom has
made different standards of morality, but con
science, the voice of God, has but one stand
ard. It is absolute. Hence I will do what is
right, not because of any outword authority—
father or mother, legislature or society. And,
to go further, not even because my own con
science demands it, and not even because it
is the law of God; but because God, the great
Lawgiver, is love, I no longer “must,” I no
longer merely obey, I wish and desire to con
form to the law, to have that law part of my
life, to be the natural expression of it This is
obedience; then, I truly obey.
The original question. One bride comes to
the minister and says: “Do not ask me to say
‘obey;’ I do not wish to be a servant of my
husband; I am his equal.” Another bride
comes and “obeys.” Not that she wishes to
be a servant, not that she is not her husband's
equal, but because reverence and love are at
work, desirous to make her life one with his.
She looks up to him and wishes to have all
her life run in the channel of his noble life.
And so the child looks to and beyond the
parent, so the citizen looks to and above the
statute. It is one of the awful disappoint
ments of life to find our trust and confidence
violated; where we look for a man to find a
thing; but true obedience demands high
standard. May we men not be found want
ing, then the brides may not be found
hesitating. F. D.
