Isaiah, like all great teachers, was
obliged to speak many stern warnings.
Individuals and nations -am best
pleased with leaders tmtfpralso and
flatter them; but such men are ene
mies rather than friends, demagogues
rather than statesmen. In our own
nstlon wo havo many braggarts, and
many easy going, orcr-sangulne cltl
sens; but the wise men are llko Isaiah,
clear-eyed to percetro national and
personal sins. Vigilance against
these Is tho only prico ot liberty In
nation and peaco In an Individual. The
old Greek maxim, "Know thyself," Is
still the foundation of true knowledge
and wisdom. In our lesson the great
prophet warns his nation against threo
national evlla: National Ingratltudn to
God; the raenaco of ungodly and un
philanthropic wealth; Intcmpcronc ,
tho great peril ot tho nation.
We can look back over history full
of deliverances. America was sottled
by men escaping from civil nnd reli
gious oppression. Tho colonists had
many marvelous dcllvorances from the
Indians and other foes. Ton Union
has been saved by tho greatest civil
war In all history. Wo havo had
among our leadera tome ot tho world's
chief men Washington, Lincoln.
Grant Jefferson, Franklin. The world's
greatest oceans preserve our country
from attack. We have a vast territory,
wonderfully rich In minerals and pro
ducing harvests abundant enough for
us and for other nations.
The natural fruit of a vineyard,
carefully prepared fine, cultivated
grapes, and a full crop; that ts, be ex
pected obedience to his cotnmacds,
and Jove and gratltudn and worship.
Instead, he got nothing but wild
grapes, small, sour and hard such re
sults as a nation might ibow that had
received no special benefits from Je
hovah. Isaiah ncit comes to particulars
tho two great fundamental sins of his
people, and of all nations. It is with
remarkable persistence that In every
civilization tho two main passion ol
tho human heart, loo of wealth and
lovo of pleasure, the Instinct to gather
and the Instinct to squander, have
sought precisely theso to forms de
nounced by Isaiah In which to work
their social havoc appropriation of
tho soli and Indulgcncn In strong
drink. Kvcry civlllxed community de
velops sooner or later Its land ques
tion and Its liquor question.
Is the land question sn American
question also? In Its essentials, yes. ,,
Hut what, back of tho land question,
Is the fundamental difficulty? The
menace of ungodly and iiuphllanthruplc
wealth. In any form land, or rail
roads, or mlnrs, or mills, or houses to
rent, or stocks and bonds or money to
lend. There Is more than one Ameri
can whose Income, Is mora than a mil
lion dollars a month.
What Is Isaiah's second "WoeT"
Against drunkenness and Its accom
panying evils, and tho Irrellgton that
goes with them.
Would Isaiah psonounco this woe
upon our nation. If ho were living to
day? He certainly would. To bo sure,
there Is the most drinking late at
eight especially after tho theater per
formances are over; and for that rca- ,
son the temperance reformers try
everywhere to pass laws closing tho
saloons by 11 o'clock nt night Still,
It Is very common, In our cities, to see
drunken men stsggcrlng around the
streets In tho morning. In the midst
cf a "spree" that may last for days.
Modern men drink many Aery, dis
tilled liquors unknown to thu ancients.
They have added thu common use of
many drugs, such aa opium and co
caine, whose physical and mental ef
fects are more terrible and swift oven
than those ot alcohol. And still the
saloon Is the center ot all other sins
against society licentiousness, mur
der, gambling, gratt.'polltica! misrule,
all nre closely connected with the
It our public schools are to give thu
scholars a practical preparation for
life, certainly no subject Is of greater
lmpurtunce than temperance. Laws
requiring scientific tcmporaneo In
struction have theroforo been passed
In all tho states and by the national
government, and inoro than forty tem
perance physiologies, for all grades,
havo been written. Nearly a million
essays on teuipcrancu themes aro writ
ten every year by school children.
Tho universities, colleges and normal
schools are taking up the study.
It Is never enough to pass a tem
perance measure. Tho open saloon at
onco becomes a secret saloon, a "blind
tiger." "Near-beers" and other drinks
sro concocted, containing Just enough
alcohol to escupo tho law, and sold
openly. Saloons spring up on Uio edgo
of tho prohibition territory. Patent
medicines with a large per cunt, ot
