Faith and Works.
Ed. Journal: It seems necessary for
me to occupy a portion of your columns
in reply to "A Word to the Wise," and by
your permission I will do so. I was some
what amused in reading his last article to
think that any man, be he minister or
layman, who professes to believe in Christ
with one breath should with the next de
ny his teaching. The Saviour tells us
plainly: "He that believeth and is baptiz
ed shall be saved, and he that believeth
not shall be damned." Mark, xvi:16. If
we believe in Christ we shall be found
doing whatever he teaches us to do.
After the Saviour was baptized bis Fa
ther acknowledged the act, and a voice
was heard saying: This is my beloved
Son, hear ye him."
After we have heard his words, if we
truly believe in him, shall we be found
contending that there is no saving bene
fit in the ordinance, and the only ordi
nance by which we can obtain a remis
sion of our sins? Or would the writer
have ns neglect this ordinance and as he
says, merely "Believe in Christ and be sa
ved." Is that all that is required of us to
do? Let us see. What evidence have
we that we believe in Christ at all?
Words without action are only empty
sounds. When certain ones came to
John, the baptist, to be baptized, he ex
claimed: "O generation of vipers, who
hath warned you to flee from the wrath
to come? Bring forth therefore fruits
meet for repentence." Matt, iii:7,8.
We will now see what James has to
say. He declares that the devils fear and
i tremble, so we cannot pin our salvation
on belief alone; there is something else
wanting. O, well, our writer would say:
we are saved by faith alone and not by
works. We shall again have to call upon
James for testimony. Hear him. "What
doth it profit, my brethren, though a man
say he hath faith, and have not works:
can faith save him? If a brother or sis
ter be naked and destitute of daily food,
and one of you say unto them. Depart in
peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwith
standing ye give them not those things
which are needful to the body, what doth
it profit? Even so, faith, if it hath not
works, is dead being alone. Yea, a man
may say, Thou hast faith, and I have
works. Skew me thy faith without thy
works, and I will shew thee my faith by
my works. But wilt thou know, O vain
man, that faith without works is dead?
James, iiJ4 to the end of the chapter.
Was not Noah saved by faith and
works? Also Lot? Was not Abraham
justified by his faith and works combin
ed, also many others of the ancient wor
thies? Yes, Mr. writer, "as theT body
without the spirit is dead, so faifck,witk
out works is dead." There is'oae thing
to which I desire to call tbe' attention of
my friend and, all eeaefs, viz: to notice
. particularly to whom the men of God are
speaking, for the same language will not
always apply to the believer and the un
be&ever. The want of this discrimination
wco many mistakes, and helps estab
lish false faiths.

The following- extract from the
speech delivered by Congressman D. B.
Tf ai?aicai ft tliA TTntic nf T?fnrfGPTlta-
tives Jan. 14, completely disposes
of the false impression created by Dem
ocratic speakers in 1890 with regard to
the appropriations made by the Fifty
First Congress. Being reminded by
Representative Simpson that the Re
Dnblican narlv would hear of
the billion-dollar Congress again, Mr.
Yes; the liars are not all dead. We
never have had a billion-dollar Con
gress in this country. Many of the
stump-speakers in the Democratic
party who have howled about the billion-dollar
Congress thought that we
were appropriating a billion dollars
every year. And many of them never
read a single appropriation bill that
passed through any Congress.
Now, Mr. Speaker, I want to call the
attention of this body to a few facts on
The total regular annual and per
manent appropriations for the Forty
ninth Congress were 8746,342,493.51;
for the Fiftieth Congress, 8817,963,
859.80; increase of the Fiftieth over the
Forty-ninth Congress, 571,621,3154.29.
But the Fiftieth Congress appropriated
for pensions, more than the Forty
ninth, the sum of 89,789,700; so that in
.-he Fiftieth Congress there was a net
increase over the Forty-ninth, for the
ardinary appropriations of the govern
ment, of 8ol.831.664.29. That shows
that in two Democratic Congresses you
have the proof that this is a growing
Republic, and one which is growing
fast. And the question is not how
much was appropriated, but was it
wisely appropriated, and did we have
Now let us look at the Fifty-first
Congress as compared with the Fiftieth,
The total regular annual and perma
nent appropriations of the Fifty-first
Congress were 5988,417,183.34. Increase

Now, Mr. Speaker, all of this cry
about the "billion-dollar Congress"
simply means this, that we gave that
8113,000,000, by legislation, appropria
tion, and payment, to the soldiers of
the Republic, their widows, children,
and dependent parents. Some of our
opponents are courageous enough to
admit it, but some will fight it under
cover. I was reading in a paper pub
lished in Kentucky, the other day, the
correspondence from a gentleman of
Washington to his paper, the Courier
Journal. He came out like a man in
the open field and charged it upon the
pension appropriations. That is the
kind of a fellow that I like. I like
four Stonewall Jacksons, but not your
bushwhackers, gentlemen. And we
have in all parties and in all countries
the brave Jacksons and the cowardly
bushwhackers and assassins.
If we are to be arraigned for
the pensions appropriations mak
ing what is termed the billion-dollar
Congress, come out like men and say it,
and we will know where we stand and
what we arc fighting. But even there
I should remark in passing, that in the
Fifty-first Congress we found awaiting
us a deficiency on pensions of 825,000,
000 that should have been appropriated
for by the last preceding Congress that
wc had to meet, and it is added to the
burden charged against the so-called
billion-dollar Congress. It should be
charged, however, to the Fiftieth and
credited to the Fifty-first We had the
eleventh census on our hands. The
operation of the law brought to us at
that time the necessity to appropriate
money for artificial limbs to crippled
We have an increase, and had to, as
an honest Congress, to meet the re
quirements of the new pension legisla
tion, by increasing the force of the
pension office. We found contracts for
building war vessels made by the prev
ious Congresses and administrations,
calling for over $7,000,000 increase.
We appropriated it, and thus met the ob
ligations lying at our doors. Former
Congresses provided sites for fortifica
tions and we finished. Sacred treaties
made with Indian tribes brought addi
tional burdens to us, but we met them,
and the opening homesteads of our
people commend our action. We met
a popular and patriotic demand among
the people and provided for the great
world's fair. There was a high duty
before the Fifty-first Congress and it
met it manfully and economically.
We met with courage and wisdom
the necessary demands of the Republic.
Yes, Mr. Speaker, and we stand to-day,
during the time arraigned by the gen
tleman from Missouri, and in the face
of the present moment, having paid
every obligation. No. dollar has heen
demanded and refused under any ap
propriation of the last Congress, or any
preceding one, and there is money in
the Treasury and in the coming rev
enues to meet every dollar. I chal
lenge any human being living to show

any disbursing officer or. any financial
agent of the government, or anyone who
controls the financles, to withhold pay-

In compliance with public demands
and Republican pledges, we revised the
tariff and reduced the income of the
government; but, Mr. Speaker, in do

The Republican party is never so

A Portrait ot Democracy.
Mr. Irvine Dungan, a Democratic
Congressman from Ohio, thus sizes up
the present Congress: "I am becom
ing convinced that this is a cowardly
Congress. It is becoming very tlre:
some to me. It ought to get up and
do what the people expect it to do, and
not be afraid of its shadow." But

think for a moment, as yon turn your
eyes to the past, what a dreadful
shadow that is.
The very parents and ministers who
laugh at their own chile ren when,
after planting seeds in a box they two
days later scratch up the earth to see
whether they are starting, and who
tell the children that "scratched up
seeds won't grow.1' are perpetually
practicing the same tactics on the
mental and moral seed boxes of their
own little ones and of their congrega
tions. Has that single intellectual or
moral let son. has that single highly
spiritual sermon struck root and is it
already pushing up to bear leaves,
flowers and fruit? Tho only way to
ascertain it they feel in their impa
tience, is to scratch up the mental

the world will be governed when the'
golden age of the millennium comes.
Its requirements will be the only

we dream. All men will do right
simply because it is right Even now
the order of society depends on the
obedience of its members to this
principle. Without it the whole busi
ness of the world would be thrown
into confusion. It is the basis of the
confidence that makes possible the
dealings between men. Tney could
not go on with any safety without a
feeling of mutual trustfulness. The
laws for the collection of debts would
not avail for the protection of credi

up to their obligation ,to keep their
promises. Oaths and bonds are not
sufficient substitutes for confidence in
the honor of men. Society could not
hold together if there was not this

Democratic but we cannot help being
interested in the children and the do
mestic affairs of tho&e in high official
positions, while our curiosity fairly
runs rampant over the aristocratic lit
tle folks of the Chinese. Japanese and
Corean legations. So much is this true
, of the general public that these un-
fortuuate foreigners have come to be
as shy and difficult of approach as her
mit thrushes; they crawl, so to speak,
into their legations, and pull their
legations in after them, refusing to let

As my friend and I went up the front

garnished with a pair of colossal vases

The Brother of Ex-Presldant Garfield
Lives la Poverty In His Old Aje.
There is a pathetic meagreness and
retirement in the life of Thomas A.
Garfield, the only brother of ex-President
Garfield, vt ich vividly shows the
possibilities of American life and the
partiality of fate.
For a quarter of a century the
brother of the "Martyred President"
has lived in obscurity on a small farm
near Grand Rapids, Mich He has no
more property now than he had twenty
years tago, and" it is claimed by his
friends that he remained poor all his
life because of early sacrifices made
for his great brother and for the simple-minded
Grandma Garfield, says the
His, they say, was a heroism as loyal
and noble as that of his brother.
Thomas is now an old man of G7, bent
and worn with life's long struggle.
When the war broke out he tried to
enlist with his brother James, but the
recruiting officer rejected him and he
remained home. In 1807 he began life
for himself, having spent thirty years
in working for his mother, brother and
sister. He is not in the best of health,
and it will probably be but a short
time before the old pioneer will be laid
away in the woods he loves so well.

for Paregoric, Drops, Soothing Syrups, and Castor Oil.
It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is thirty years' use by
HUlions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays
feverishness. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic. Castoria relieves
teething troubles, cures constipation and flatulency.
Castoria assimilates the food, regulates the stomach
and bowels, giving healthy and natural sleep. Cas
toria is the Children's Panacea the Mother's Friend.
u Castoria is an excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
good effect upon their children."
Do. O. C. Osgood,
Castoria is the best remedy for childna of
which I am acquainted. I hope tho day is" not
far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the variotisquaclc nostrums which are
destroy ins their loved ones, by fortius opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
