A SHORT SERMON OH A LIVE
Our fiicnd Lillie suggests a "ser
mon" from "Old Hill" on the text,
"a half-day a week for baseball,
y aehting, picnics,, etc. , is well earn
ed at the close of a hard week's
work by merchant, mechanic, and
clerk." Well, hero goes.
The sentiment of our test is op
posed by some people at the outset
with the argument that one dar,s
rest in seven is suflicient, and there
fore an extra half day is super
fluous. Here is a fundamental error,
wliint, rmiaf Jin f.rrriafw1
does not ask! for "a half-day's
ft but for a half-day's "recreation iand
amusement. Sunday is a rest day,
not a recreation day. The law is
against baseball, etc., on that clay,
so the base ball people who came
here a few Sundays' ago were in
formed. People are required to
rest on that day.
To be sure, the exertion of going
to church in the broiling sun is not
tabued. In fact, if a man wishes to
maintain.a reputation for respect
ability he -had better do it-. If- is
not against tho law to stay home,
but it tells against a -man's position
in society. If he is rich, never mind ;
but if he is poor, he cannot affoid
it. Neither is forbidden on the
Sabbath the hardest of all haul
work to some people, viz. : to listen
to a drawling discourse which may
embody, a wearisome expression pf
want of 'ideas, a'monotonous repeti
tion of the" litany, 'or the ejacufation
of an extempore ,prayer in which the
Xord is given .the news of the week.
This kind..gf work, we say, hard
and' irksome' though it be, is not
against the law. Nor is it enjoined
by tlyUawynltliough if a man would
ho thought well of and enjoy the
confidence pf good people ho hnd
better go to church twice on Sun
day and look as interested and de
vout as he knows how. Neverthe
less, if ho so choose, nnd has tho
courage, homay stay.at , home and
But the law' unclothe opinion of
those who shape the destinies of the
community,, are, .both, particularly
tliclattcr, dead against recreation
and-amusoment, such as basebnll
ing', cricketing, target-shooting,
etc., on Sunday. Let us obey tho
law and the prophets, nnd keep the
Sabbath in tho orthodox manner,
like good citizens nnd good Chris
tians. But, dearly beloved brethren, as
weanrjofc-aesccrutQ the Sabbath, by
any8Uclil'rofane 'practices as sldt
tles, r chuck" farthing, or putting
the shot, or climbing a greasy pole,
orVnnrblca, or any other worldly
" amusement tjiat may suit our de
based, and perverted tastes, let us
have, in aecoi dunce with the senti
montof our (.oil, pup half day in
the seyeii whereon we may, if it so
" please us, indulge in these and such
likemuBements to our hearts' con-
tent, the marshal and tho police not
daring to make us afraid.
Here a formidable obstacle con
fronts us. '.there are among us
certain men, fat with riches, who
say that our text is not iu tho
authorized version, and therefore
not to be heeded. Wo want no half
day'o cessation from business dur
ing tho six days of the week, say
they. We love our places of busi
ness, and we like to stick to them
from the risinc of tho sun until
closing time. We have homes of
comfoit and luxury, to which we re
tire at night, and nice cnmnge.9 to
go about in when wo feel like it.
Wo are happy and contented. Why
this murmuring among the common
Now, these men speak truly.
They do not want a time for recrea
tion. They do not care for the
amusements that please the young,
such as hopscotch, jumping lope,
boating, and so forth ; neither does
"Omilill" himself; he is past that
stage. They have the means to en
joy themselves at will in their own
wa3. But two things they seem to
forget. First, that there was a time
when they took pleasure in the re
creative occupations dear to most
young people; and, second, that
their employees arc now mostly at
that stage of life when it is natural
to cravo for such amusements, and
therefdro desire and ask for one
half day in the week to indulge
therein. Let us hope that these
gentlemen will give themselves a
few moments' reflection, and there
by recall to mind these two forgot
ten facts; and having called to
mind, will admit the force of our
text, and act accordingly. So mote
Editok Buijxtw: In the "Ad
vertiser," Nov. i?8th, Reform comes
to the front, with a long rigmarole
about the lower grade of American
machine politics. He says, "the
writer isevidently unacquainted with
American machine politics or with the
technical meaning of the term boss."
Perhaps so, Mr. Editor, but then, I
am afraid that Reform knows rather
too much about machine politics,
for his own good ; he has probably
been there. Again lie says, "the
modern boss is the latest product of
the spoils system ol politics, and is
found in perfection in the slums,
etc." Taken altogether in one dose,
I should say he has drawn a very
dark picture for the bosses. But
. .then it appears to me that the whole
scope and object of his loni; drawn
rout third rate lawyer's argument is,
to lead the people blindfolded, from
here, down through tho Labyiinthiau
cesspools of Amciican machine
politics, and hold them there, with a
view of drawing a veil and hiding
from sight-as long as possible the
bosses in Hawaii net. But there is
no use in kicking against the pricks;
for the whole compact of bosses.
big and little, have their fingers

and the pie, through such a con
glomciation ot fingering, already
'shows signs of that most dangerous
disease called collapse. Therefore,
arise, oh ye hypocrites, and deceiv
ers of tho people, and turn from the
dark mirey road that ye are wallow
ing in, hunting for dollars and po
litical power, that leads to perdi

into the straight smooth road that
leads to peace and happiness, and
leave politics to wiser and better
