tKANPLATBO HY C. C. S
Materialism, and especially mater
ialistic Pantheism, appears in the
highest degree plausible to all tho.-c
who have a consciousness of their
own emptiness and good-for-noth-ingnessjwithout
feeling disgusted a
The superficial system (as for in
stance. Materialism, and many forms
of Pantheism) have a strong claim
to the applause of all mediocre and
easy-going brains. They offer a
concise solution of problems, and
one easy to formulate, aud easy to
Materialism is a tendency, not a
system; it cannot, therefore, be
overcome by opposing a system to
it, however able such an opposing
system might be.
The people in our day begin to
have ft consciousness of the human
worth of material things for truly
humau purposes: it is this which
men call the Materialism of our age.
Heaven, the locality of God, is
everywhere in the creation (in cos
mic space) where God has already
given himself therein a real being,
where, consequently, he has a being
in space, but one which does not
limit him. Heaven, therefore, is in
a process of infinite growth, aud is
therefore itself infinite.
Creation is Creation only so far as
in it there is nowhere a leap, but
each of its members is an actual de
velopment out of the link of the
chain next preceding it.
The creation of Man, like that of

The powers of nature are unques
tionably "clastic" (even according to
experience) for they are infinitely
modifiable by one another.
Man has many individual thoughts
In his productions; God, when He
creates, has one single thought,
which comprehends all in all.
It is very well, to go back, in
Physics, to Atomism ; but when men
see in the whole of Xaturc nothing
more than an aggregate of Atoms
when they forget, that the Creator
of Atoms has, out of them, by his
creativo activity, brought forth
something incomparably higher:
this is, to put it in the mildest terms,
n mischievous want of thought.
Whoever tries to explain the
world without the idea of God, is
J obliged to guess; whoever, with
this idea, sets about understanding
it, can explain it.
If God could bring the creation to
no better result than what it now is
in our experience, lie would never

Housekeepers should purchase a
supply of ammonia to use in house
cleaning. The husband has every
thing to lighten his labors. Now
suppose lils wife had her bottle of
ammonia to usc;sho takes a basin
of water and a clean cloth, puts on
a few drops of fluid, and wipes off
all the dirt; it is worth more than a
half day's hard labor and does not
hurt the paint either. She could
put a few drops into her dishwater,
aud sec how easy the dishes could
be cleaned ; a few drops on a sponge
would clean all the windows in the
sitting room, make them shine like
crystal. It would take the stains off
teaspoons, too, and a tablespoonful
in the moppail would do more to
ward washing up the kitchen floor,
than ten pounds of elbow grease ap
plied to the mop handle. A house
wife has just as much right to make
her work easy and expeditious as
her husband has. If she docs not
do it, the fault is her own in a great
measure. Farm and Fireside.
