Indian courage, patience, endurance, and

other hand, profess to see In him some
of the vices of Indian blood.
From what I have seen of General
Huerta In tha field, In private life, and
a president, I would say that He com
bines In himself both the virtues and the
fault of his race. In battle I have seen
him expose himself with a courage worthy
of the beat Indian tradition's; nor have I

that Oenerat Huerta' once revealed hi

men, we hava concluded that Inasmuch
a w have been a churchman from our
youth up and aro now dancing around
the maypole or three score and ten
years, all of which time we have not
been an Weal observer In regard to the
drift of events passing around us, there
ara many reasons. In our opinion why
the churches of the preseat day ars not
o generally attended as In former days.
In the first place, where there used to
be only one or two meeting place there
are now from wvin to many more. In
the second place th church was about
th oSly placa offering a place for peo
ple to congregate on the Sabbath day.
Now there are tbe Sunday excursion, the
Sunday theater, the Sunday ball games,
with parks and bear gardens and a hun
dred other attractions, astd from Jo
auto riding all ot which have come Into
existence during th recollection ot th
writer. However, these, all of tbem, ara
not the great hladranca or arcAtast
causa exletlag today for th d carta ta
church attendance. Men and women like !
amusement, but they also like tha gospel 1
when It Is preached In Its parity, and
preached by men who bear the dignity
and reverence of Godly men. But this
feature has been superseded to a
greater or less extent by the scholarly
man: which would be well enough If
the scholarly man had not adopted tho
plan of preaching to Itching cars mora
than to hungry souls.
Then there Is another feature that haa
don much to lesson the average lay
man's Interest and seat In the Work of
the church and that I the custom
adopted In most alt of our churches tn
these latter days, by nearly all pastors,
of the usurpation of tho religious
functions of the church. For In
stance, take those churches that ara
till. In a weak way, trying to ketp up
mid-week services, commonly called
prayer meeting. The pastor take full
charge. Ha reads a little scripture and
then ' gives a lone talk, generally oc
cupying three-fourths of the hour allotted
for the .meeting, when he will look at his
watch and say," There are yet about
fifteen minute and in that time let u
have a few short .prayers." and will
then proceed to use1 everaL moments
taors of the short time left In telling tho
brethren how much the church Is In
need of earnest, faithful prayer. Then
he will say, "Let us pray," and after
some brother or sister has studied out
Just how short his prayer must bo to
meet with tho minister' torders, will
begin, thinking all the time of what has
been said, Instead of what he Is saying
and to whm he Is directing his prayer.
is there any wonder that the church
has' lost Its attraction? There Is Just one
more reason, that we wish to mention in
this article, and that I the near theater
the people are now making out of the
temple of worship, or the house of God.
