Easy for August.
In tho matter ot good conduct,
August, ns tho last month of the
summer, has an easy record to sur
pass in the precedents sot by Juno
and July, bothf'of which wcro unusu
ally hot and dr? !n this, Iminddlnto
vicinity and In many" soctlons over
tho country. August may go. to con
siderable length in misbehavior with
out exceeding what has already been
dono to us this season, though it is
tq bo hoped It will "let not ambition
mock its useful toll" and prompt vnlh
aspirations when, there Is loft for It
so much -really to do In compensating
for deficiencies' gone before.
Caprice and folly may do for giddy
months like June and July, but never
for August, whoso very nnmo sug
gests' soberness, dignity and respect
for the rights and comfort of hu
mnnlty. We hopo this quiet appeal
to Its sense of decbrurn will not bo In
vntn. Thero Is a thno for all thlngB,
as old authority tells un; a time to
weep, as well as a time to laugh,
bo, while wo deslro the sunshine, we
need the rain; a time to mourn and.
n tlmo to dance. Folks havo dono a
good deal -of both lately mourned

Putting it Up to the Clergy.
Tho Society for the Friendloss pro
poses to put up squarely to tho clergy
thp responsibility for securing eu
genic marriages. It has authorized
a resolution to be submitted to tho
various annual church conventions In
the autumn, which, if adopted, will
commit the mlnistors performing
marriago ceremonies to require cer
tificates of sound physical condition
of both parties. The resolution pro

ties, to make uuch demands upon
couples cooking matrimony, But
this resolution in itself is an admis
sion of tbe need for some power to
make tho practice general. Cer
tainly tho clergy should take tho lead
in any movement calculated to exalt
the sanctity of the family aluir and
purify the wellsprlng ot life, Here
in a chance to make good on high-
sounding resolutions and what seems
to be a solemn duty. Such reserva
tions may. conflict seriously with
money-making matrimonial bureaus,
which ask only possession of tho
legal license, but the clergy can, If it
will, exact more without waiting for
tne law-makers to do so.

ricial to both classes, for If the Bhame-

modesty and Innocence they may be per.
suaded to amend their lives and reform
their manners. On tho other hand, If a
young working girl can pass through thU
Hery furnace of temptation and still re
main good her power of resistance will
be fully demonstrated and her friends
will acknowledge that the day of mira
cles Is not yet passed. I allow no liquors
to be sold on hoard except the best, and
no man or girl can be served after they
become too weak to call the waiter. At
11 o'clock the boat stands five miles off
shore and I order all the lights out on
both decks so that those who wish to
talk over the business and political af
fairs of the day may do so without being
Interrupted or embarrassed, After sacri
ficing my personal interests In order to
benefit the community I am continually
harrassed by the newspapers, bled by the
county attorney and the police force and
called to account by men like yourself
who being corrupt ot heart see harm In
everything. This boat returns In the
morning In tlmo for all who have recov
ered from their seasickness to no to work
and those who are Indisposed must
straighten up and leave the boat by din
ner time. To moke a long story short,
he continued, I have no use for u re
former nor a prude. There Is no harm
In drinking beer and ragging, unless we
think so. There Is no harm In singing
"vulgar songs unless we make harm out
ot it. There Is no such thing as vul
garity it Is only our Imagination that
makes It appear so. When a man sits
and falls asleep over a bottle he Is as
harmless as a bell boy, and when a glut
ton rises from the table, nothing could
Induce him to engage In a street Tght.
I hold the opinion that liquor and "to
bacco, if moderately usd, are good for
the health, but a man should never drink
more than his stomach will hold. Let u
have everything wide Open, I say. Let
the sexes get together and amuse them
selves, and because a few go to the bad
Is no reason for restraining the rest.
'Parents who are unwilling to trust their
children un my excursion boat at night,
where' there are' plenty of men to look
after them, ought not have children, and
I hope I have made myself clear.
I saw at once that the man was shrewd
enough to hypnotize his own conscience
and "make tho worse appear the better
cause," so. I strolled away without mak
lngxany rejoinder. E. O. M.
