THE QUIET HOUR
1 leeall very vividly, how, when 1
was a boy the entire community was
greatly shocked because a very prom
inent man had the misfortune to die
of apoplexy in the local saloon. The
in ulent became the theme of much
comment. And many very respect
able people were greatly scandalized
because of the occurance. To me it
was always a puzzle. 1 could not. un
derstand why, if the saloon was a
good place in which to lounge and vis
it, why it should not be as respect
able for a regular patron to die there.
Since then I have grown older, and
I trjst wiser, yet to this day the
th- inconsistency of the majority
of "drinking people" puzzle me.
'Ylii’e well and prosperous they curse
God and things ehurchly, but no
sooner do they fall a prey to disease
and death than they turn to the
. rich and the Christian people for
in Ip and consolation. Not one of
them ever asks to be buried from a
saloon by saloon men. The preacher
is tiled, and if possible the ser

Wnieh is tlie more dangerous cit
i; li, .. robber or a saloon keeper?
Permit me to ask a few questions.
‘‘Fathtrs, which would you rather
find in your boy’s pocket, nothing or
a cuttle of whiskey?” Your answer
is qi.iek and sure, ‘‘nothing of course;
lif tHi for the boy.”
Mother, which would you rathre
find in your boy's pocket for his usf\
nothing or a bottle of whiskey?” Ev
ery mother with a boy has but, one
answer, “nothing, a thousand times
Wife, which would you rather find
in your husband's pocket for his own
use. nothing or*a bottle of whiskey?
There are exceptions, but how many
wives worthy the name, will answer
The highway robber takes the mon
ey and leaves nothing in the pocket.
The saloon keeper takes the money
and leaves a bottle of whiskey in
lb*- pocket. As much better as noth
ing in the pocket is better than a
bottle of whiskey, even so much bet
t < . is a rol her than a saloon keeper.
And yet a number of our respectable
citizens voted and petitioned to let
six saloon keepers loose in our com
THE RURAL CHURCH.
l.i traveling to and fro through the
country, my heart has often rejoiced
to see the many beautiful farm homes
weii their excellent appointments
and splendid equipments. In the
m. jority of instances the buildings
ar modern, commodious and kept in
tin best of repairs. Flowers bloom
in the well kept lawns, and the new
paint on the buildings shines in the
sunlight and among the green trees. I
All tliis is indicative of industry and
thrifT Why should not rural folks j
grat'fy their artistic tastes with so
many opportunities and the means
But how often have 1 passed coun
try churches looking forlorn and neg
lected. Thi buildings at their best
are email, out-of-date, and in poor
repair. The paint is weather-worn
a .it conspicuous, only because of its
absence. The windows broken; the
eaves decorated by the wood peck
ers' industry; and the door not in
frequently ajar inviting rain and
storm to do their worst; the fences
down; the yard in disorder with
grass and weeds growing Avild, trees
usually few and ill kept. In eon
uro-i with the- splendid equipped and
ri: lily appointed homes the average
co.u try church appears sadly out of
Our prosperous famers fail to catch
the spirit of David who could not en
joy his cedar and gold palace until
he had made every possible prepara
tion for the building of a magnifi
cent house for his Lord. There was
time when the first-fruits and the
best were the Lords. When the faith
ful vied with one another to please
God. We are too busy in our time
to care for any but our own, and
God's house and his work go hogging.
Brethren, this aught not be so. It
need not be so. It must not be so.
Let us play fair with the house of our
God. We have been greatly prosper
ed materially, let us not be unmind
ful of the claims of our churches
and donate an equitable portion to
wards thoir improvement and towards
beautifying the surroundings.
THE RELATION OF PATRIOTISM
Prof. Simon N. Patten of the Uni
a • rsity of Pennsylvania has just sur
prised his conservative colleagues
with a remarkable suggestive study
of current social facts which con
clude with the startling theory that
“no man lias a right to expect salva
tion unless his neighborhood is also
Without discussing the novel theo
logical questions invilved in Prof.:
Patten’s unique point of view, his i
practical words and his presentation
of patriotic personal responsibility;
deserve the careful thought of every I
friend of reform and Christian patri
ot throughout the land.
The average attitude of so large
a portion of so-called good citizens
and the danger that this attitude may
defeat all reform is pointed out in
these searching remarks of Prof.
“Where do you come from? From
Norwich, N. Y.; from New York City;
from Philadelphia; from Pittsburg;
from San Francisco; from Milwau
kee; from Providence; from Washing
ton, D. ('..—as the case may be.
"What are the prevailing condi
tions in your community? Are the
lawmakers honest? Does justice pre
vail in the courts? Do the powerful
oppress the helpless? Is the deatli
rate normal? Is childhood protected?
Is there congestion of populaion, exr
ploitntion of employes, corruption of
public officials? 4
“I do not know exactly about such
matters. 1 tried to life a blameless
life. I was a good church member. I
clothed tiio naked, fed the hungry,
visited the sick. All the command
ments 1 kept from my youth up. Nay,
I sold a large part of what 1 had and
gave to the poor. I5ut I had not much
political influence. My business and
family interests left me little time for
politics and social reforms. My
work iu the church took much of my
leisure. I do not know whether my
neighbor's children worked in the
mills at tender years or visited im
moral Daunts at night in the uniform
of a recognized messenger service. I
voted for license 1o keep taxes low.
I took rent from over-crowded tene
ments because my agents managed
that part of my property and it was
an inconvenience" to change invest
ments. I found it easier to do busi
ness with a political machine and
acquiesced in the graft on which it
lived. I often heard ( proclaimed the
doctrines of social responsibility, hut
I did not take them seriously.”—Ne
Marriage is really the epitome of
all other fine relations. There is a
certain amount of brotherliness in
it as between the married pair; there
is a certain fatherly attitude; there
is a certain motherly brooding on
the part of the wife over the hus
band; there is friendship, and an
element of comradship; and there
is always something infinitely more.
It is something present in no other
human relation. It is just the feeling
(hat. as between husband and wife,
there shall be a total blending of
mind with mind and heart with
heart; tliat they shall touch not
merely at one point, as friends
or companions do, but that
they shall touch at all points; that
they cannot endure separation.
Emerson said he could well af
ford to have a friend, Caryle, live on
the other side of the water—lie did
not need 1 is presence; but true hus
band and wife cannot live one on Ibis
side of the water and the other on
the other side. They are moved to
have all things in common, to live
under the same roof, to break bread
together day by day, to pass through
the vicissitudes of life together, to
suffer with each other, to rejoice to
gether; to wish to confer perpetual
benefit each on the other. They
are not romantic enthusiasts, neither
are they without the poetic rapture
in each other's relation.
“Better to make a thousand mis
takes and suffer a thousand reverses
than to refuse the battle.” — Henry
“Do as well as you can today, and
perhaps tomorrow you may be able
to do better.”—Newton.
, Character Is the divinest thing on
earth. It is the one thing that you
can put into the shop or into the study
and be sure that the fire is going to
Good Rule to Follow.
What is worth doing is worth do
ing well; and with little more trouble
at first, much trouble afterwards may
be avoided.—Max Muller, Letter to
Following Homer’s Example.
"Oh, no,” said the impecfinious au
thor, “I don't mind my poor, bare gar
ret. Homer, you know, wrote his mas
terpieces up under the roof.” “Where's
your authority for that?” “He cer
tainly wrote them in the Attic.”
