, Mr..Bigg9 in explaining the
text, MBo not drunk with wine,
wlerein is excess, Eph'5;

and his knowledge of the Eng

the Greek in order to make
the audience understand the
meaning of that plain JexU .To
mv mind that text explains it
self lully. : Paulj simply ex
horted the Ephesians not to be
drunk with wine,lor if they did,
Ihey would beguilty(of excess;
in other wordd, do not drink to
excess, d(r not, get (jrunk, he
meant that nothing more.
That drunkenness iis a great
evil,' needs no' argument. All
know, and kll, admit the iacJL.
All admit the-fact litat some
thing should be Jon to lessen
the evil, to reiorm inebri
ate, and to prevent those who
are not inebriates trop tecom

done? What means are ade

able end? That's the rub! That's

They would adopt the phi.
losophy of him ; who said,
Be chaste till you'r tempted, ! :
Bo wise and discrete,'
And bumble your bodies by fasting,
As olt as you buVe nothing to cat."
By the absence of tempta
tion they would make all men

But that is ntit'Qod'o. Weth
ed of reforming men,, lie per
mits men to be tempted, lie
requires self denial, he re
quires voluhtary service, he
has permitted all men, good as
well as bad, to be, .tempted.
St. Paul was tempted Hwith
a thorn in the- flesh, and
he besought the Lord! thrice to
have it removed," but he got
the answer, "my grace is sulTi
cient for thee;" so he had to en
dure : the trial; so those men
who are so ' unlortunate as to
have an appetite for strong
drink, or any other appetite or
passion,' if they will they may
reform, it the. Lord will not re
move the thorn, his grace will
be sufficient, ii they will1 deny
themselves; and take up the
cross and lollow bim, ill's to be
a willing service. The volition
of the will is the power that
governs the acts of men, We
must deal with men as they
are, and not as we would have
(hem. I have but: little faith
in prohibitory law, for the rear
son it does not reach . the will
of the . governed, therefore
those that would : favor such a
law, need no such) law, and
they who would not favor such
a law, would disregard such a
law, if we. had it. Instance, the
Maine law . as tried in New
England for years? Dio Lewi,
himself I ells us. as he is obliged
to tell us, that it has, proven a
failure, Neal Dow, lhaLfather
of .liA Maine liquor, law, said

Arbor Day in Nebraska.
It is a fact that tree planting
on a large scale is needed on
Ihe Nebraska prairie, and the
people of the Stale are: fully
awsre of the importance of the
subject.'1 On the bluffs, and ort
tbe banks ot rivers and streams,
there is abundance of wood and
a large variety of native Irees;
but there is not sufficient for
the country. The manner in
which lumber is beingcut with
out the forests being replaced
in the east, also points to the
time, when, if trees are planted,
the lumber crop ol the pra'irie
States will be a matter of much
moment to the country at large.
In Nebraska timber grows
with astonishing rapidity; and.
if the farmers of tbe country
are equal to their opportuni
ties, not many years will elapse
before the treeless prairie is
adorned with .waving woods.
the lumber of which will add
largely to the revenue of the
owners of the soil.
Trees are now being plan'ed
in Nebraska by the mi' bins
The Hon. J. Sterling Mortoof
Nebraska City, Ottoe Con y
has been one or the pioneers in
tree planting. The first "arbor
day" was in' 1871, and oh that
day two million tree9 were
planted; In 1872 and 1873,
"arbor day" was dropped, but
it was recommended to the far
mers to choose for themselves
a day in April, and set it apart
for tree ' planting This year.
however, the State Board of
Agriculture has deternvned to
go back to tha or'gi ial p'a'i.
It has -been resolved lint "ir
bor day shall be the second
Wednesday in April; and the
State Lpgislafnre in to be asked
to make Ihe day a legal holidv.
Each owner of Ip&1 is recom
mended to plant at least one
tree; and the State Bard will
award, a premium to the per
son who plants the. . largest
number, It is now the custom
of the Board to give a premium
to Ihe hn1 owner who baa
planted the mot Irees n any
given dav in. Apri:; n Vat a re
cent meeting of the Board tbe
prize was awarded t a 'arrrer
who set out 27,800 trr es on the
28th day of A;rri18t3. . .
