BrtHcts- from the Christian Neighbor
Is Ikert NMd for Peace Societies *
The object of Peace Societies is no
to supplant, supplement or interfere
with existing ecclesiastical or civil or
ganizations or regulations any furthei
than the advocacy of Arbitration anc
Christianity may more or less inci
dentally or consequentially affect thes<
"powers that be"?affect them to theii
If the Christian Church had coutin
ued its unequivocal testimony in fa
vor of peace and against war as it die
for the first three hundred years aftei
Christ, there would not have been a
any time during the Christian dls
pensstion up to the present day an]
necessity for Peace societies. But ac
oording as Christians and churches de
< parted from the "faith once delivered
tothesainte" and engaged in carna
warfare the testimony of Christian]
gainst war became less and less pro
nouneed until the church as a whoh
became silent and thus repudiated 01
"d#t>ied the faith" on this paramouni
subject, and by engaging in war witl
the fighting kingdoms of the work
the church denied the practice of Je
us, the Apostles and the earlier Chris
tiana. Thus besmirched by this "spoi
and wrinkle" the Church wanderec
from its true mission of teaching
brocaany love, oDetuence w uuu, uuu
dm* and pureness of living, hence th(
command to go into the world anc
preach the gospel of peace and gooc
will to every creature was given by th<
Prinoe and Savior. It was so begur
and so continued for about three hun
dred years, but by little and little the
Church deflected until it fell into al
llanoe with the warring kingdoms o:
th^world and thus placed itself in antagonism
to that kingdom whose loya]
subjects do not flght.
If the churches in Christendom dc
not need a reform in their views,
teaahings and general approval and
support of militarism as existing "in
tine of peace" as well as in time ol
actual War, then it may be asked what
do they need ?
Very many people?among them
lsarnned dirfnes?speaK 01 me uuit
for beating swords into plowshares,
Ac., as yet to oome, to some as vague,
misty and indefinite future. Let all
people learn from the Scripture (Bom.
alii, 11?14) that more than eighteen
hundred yean ago, "the night was fai
spent and the day was at hand" and
that tfien those who were "of the day"
"cast off the works of darkness and
pat on the armor of light" If it was
than "high time to awake out of sleep"
what and how is it now in this the
nineteenth century of "The Light oi
the world ?"
Something is needed to set churches
right on war, and to induce nations to
settle disputes by some other method
than by the sword. Arbitration for
natinnn the teaching and spirit ol
Christ for the churches.

Charity and fraternity that accord
with common sense and self-respect?
that work with equal ease both waysare
prominent features in all true
oboflohes. For a minister of one
church to accept of a courtesy from
another knowing at the same time that
his chnroh will not permit him to reciprocate
is unfrafcernal and contrary
to that love which does as it would not
be done by. As to the charity or fraternity
of the church which in the
ceoe given extends such courtesy it is
a tub that holds no water and is ready
tolkll to staves for the lack of the

A Few QaerlM.
It it the proper way?
1. For a minister or other person in
reading the Scriptures or hymns in
public worship to lootc up ana ai mt

2. Is it the proper way for any on<
reading in the Bible for others to heai
not to announce the book and chaptei
until the reading is ended rather thai
make such announcement before be
ginning to read ?
S. Ought not the reader of any com
maofefctfonto an assembly announce
distinctly the author of the communi
cation and the time and place, whei
andtlrhere written, before beginning
to read ? And if the reader can giv<
the drift of the communication befor<
beginning to read, so much the bettei
?is it not?
4, Is not the exclusiveness and ar
rogance of a church or of a professing
Christian the counterpart of their laci
of knowledge and of the Spirit o
Christ? Do not suoh need teaching
and a change of heart?
5. Ought not the demeanor of ar

A Promise Well Kep.*
A life saved by Bible reading is an
incident narrated in the Pittsburg
Commercial Gazette. It states that
Coloned Pat Donan, the western orator,
owes his life to keeping a promise.
Some years ago, during a journey by
steamer from New Orleans to St. Louis,
he was invited to make one of a party
of card players in the cabin. It was
Sunday morning, and the Colonel,
though making no profession of religion,
objected. To cut off futher pressure.
he went to his stateroom. Feeling
dull, he looked around for something
to read. Suddenly he remembered
he had received a present of a
Bible from a cousin in New Orleans,
and had promised to read it. This
was a good opportunity, and he
searched for and found the volume.
He opened it almost at random, and
was soon absorbed in its pages. He
soon forgot the poker-players, and
read on for sometime. How long lie
sat there he does not know, but he was
aroused by a terrific explosion. Hurrying
.on deck, he found that the explosion
'had occurred just under the
forward part of the cabin, where the
card party was gathered, and every
one of them was killed. The steamer
was sinking, but Colonel Donas succeeded
in getting on board one of the
boats, with other passengers, and they
were picked up three miles below.
There are probably few persons who
owe to their reading the Bible the saving
of their lives, but there must be
an incalculable number who owe to it
the saving of their souls, which is a
uHii mnre imnortant matter, John v.
