THE QUIET HOUR WHY? 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 vi'*' is from tiie church—Queer fr; it not' ARGUMENT. 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 nothing.” 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 quickly, “nothing?” 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 m n’ty. 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 at band? 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 place. 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 TO SALVATION. 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 saved.” 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. Patten: “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 braska News. 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 Van T)yko. “Do as well as you can today, and perhaps tomorrow you may be able to do better.”—Newton. Character. , 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 burn.—Phillips Brooks. 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 John Bellows. 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.” The Falls City State Bank Will be pleased to loan you wliat money you may need on approved security.
