THE MANNING ThES,
Discusses the Sanctity of Marriage and of
Is marriage a failure?" We see
that question going around and being
discussed. If I knew what particular
marriage they are talking about maybe
I could answer. I know several that
are failures. But as a general propo
sition they might- as well ask, "Is man
a failure, is woman a failure, is crea
tion a failure?"
But suppose marriage is a Failure,
what are you going to do about it?
Mr. Ingersoll says untie the knot. Let
w.-..man untie it for cause and a woman
without cause. His precise language
is, "I would give divorce to every
woman who wanted it whether the
man had violated the contract or not."
Surely he dident mean that. He
dident reflect on the consequences.
It is a kind of "free love" that we
thought was abandoned even in New
England. It shocks the judgement
of all mankind. What would become
of the children if the mother was
permitted to change husbands at her
pleasure? Maybe in her caprice she
would want some other woman's hus
band and so destroy the peace and
happiness of that family. Mr. Inger
soll's theory is to let every woman
float around loosa until she found her
affinity, but, sometimes a woman
loves a man who doesent love her;
what then? The poor fellow would
have to run away,- I reckon, and if he
was uncommonly good looking an
other woman would grab him on the
run-in fact, two or three might grab
him and fight over him, for the
scriptures do tell us of a time 'vhen
seven women shall take hold of one
man. Good gracious! From such a
calamnity good Lord deliver us. Mr.
Ingersoll ought to write a book on
"Divorces Made Easy," and tell us
what is to be done with the children
-the poor little innocent things who
wouldent have any father to spatk of
and hardly any mother; no happy
home, no parental training, no com
fort-for you see their mother might
be living with some other fellow.
Mr. Ingersoll says that "parents make
a mistake in bringing up children, in
stead of letting them grow." Was
there ever such theoretic nonsense
uttered by a learned and intelligent
man? We have all admired his beau
tiful expressions, his tenderness, his
sympathy, his exquisite pathos of
thought, but his -utterances in his
late lecture in Chicago would indicate
that the man has lost his reason. In
his desire to obliterate the Bible and
all its teachings, he makes a stab
at marriage and training up children
and at the Christian Sabbath. . He
says that "a man who says the Colum
bian Fair should be closed on Sunday
-is a monument of impudence." He
is welcome to his company, for every
bad man, every immoral woman,
every anarchist, every lawbreaker, is
on his side. On the other side are all
the great and good men of the centu
ries that have passed from Milton and
Shakespeare down to Macaulay and
Gladstone. All the greatest philoso
phers and poets of the past 200 years
stand as firm as a rock upon the Bible
and its teachings, and it does not be
come one man, however learned, to
array himself against them. To do
that a man must be a "monument of
impudence." Dr. Samuel Johnson,
the profoundest thinker and philoso
"Religion, of which the rewards
are distant and which is animated
only by faith and hope, will glide .by
degrees out of the mind unless it be
invigorated by external ordinances
and by stated calls to worship."
One man cannot destroy sanctity of
the Sabbath. It is stradige that he
would wish to. Ilheard a Jewish rab
bi say in a public lecture: "I do not
believe in your Christian religion.
It is not my faith nor the faith of my
fathers, but I would not live in any
but a Christian country, under Chris
tian laws and Christian rulers. A
Christian civilization has done more
for humanity and liberty and progress
that all others, and offers the best
protection to my children and my
I do not believe that an agnostic or
infidel or gambler or cheat or swindler
if he has a family would tear down
the spires of our -churches or muffle
the sound of the S'abbath bells.
Every man, however self debased, has
a hope for the welfare of his children.
Mr. Ingersoll lectured on "Liberty"
and in his enthusiam over his subject
he wants every man and woman and
child to do as they please, especially
the women- and children. He says
that "men are slaves, and women are
the slaves of slaves, and children are
something worse." If men are slaves,
who are the masters? If there is any
slavery at my house Mrs. Arp does
en't know it, and every morning at
daybreak my rooster crows, "Woman
rules here," and I hear it echoed over
at Judge Milner's and John Akin's
and Dr. Kirk's, and even old Uncle
Simon Peter's ducks say, "Quack,
quack, that's a fact." Solomon said:
"Train up a dhild in the way he
should go, for when he gets old you
- And Pope said: "Just as the twig is
bent the tree's inclined." To my
opinion there is most too much liber
ty every where in this land of free
dom. I am certain the boys have too
much for they shoot my pigeons in
my own trees and Mrs. Arp says we
mustent say anything about it for fear
* of hurting feelings.
Mr. Ingersoll wants them to grow
up as they please and frolic every day
and on Sunday to wake up and sing:
Welcome, sweet day of fun.
That saw the Fair arise;
The gates are open and I'll run
And feast my longing eyes.
Or that other hymn now changed
Thine earthly sabbath, Lord, we love,
And to the Fair my feet il shove.
Now I don't believe in penning the
the children up all 'Cay Sunday with
the shorter catechism, but I do be
lieve in training them to have respect
and reverence for the Lord's day, and
to go to Sabbath school and church
and read some; in the Bible. The
devil has a good chauce to work on
them all the week days, and it is well
to fortify against him one day ii
seven and repair the breaches. ]
l1o arond me wherever I go, and
I find the best people are on the side
of the church and the Sabbath and
the preachers. May our children all
stand or fill with them.
What a contrast to those senti
meuts of Ingersoll were the old-fas! -
ioned, impregnable .dnionitions of
Dr. Strickler and Dr. Candler at the
dedication of the Agnes Scott icsti
tute last week. What a feast of rea
son-what a comfort to the parents
who have daughters there. I am
thankful that I have lived to see that
day and hear those sentiments breath
ed out by noble, Christian men
great-hearted, broad-minded educa
tors, who are leading our people in
the only road to happiness. I am
thankful that I have lived to see this
splendid memorial to a good woman
--a mother in Israel who raised up
her children in the fear of God, and
taught them to love and to fear Him
and keep His commandments. We
used to have such wcmen and their
sons were heroes and their daughters
heroines in the time of trouble. As Dr.
Candler said, I am glad that I have
lived to see the man who in active life
gave of his first earnings $111,000 to
build and establish such a school as
this for our daughters. Such a
grand success as the Agnes Scott
has never been known in Georgia
nor in the South,-for it has sprung up
as by a magican's wand or the rub
bing of a geni's lamp. Dean Swift said
that "The reason why there were so
many unhappy marriages was be
cause the girls spent too much time
in making nets and so little in mak
ing cages." They attach more impor
tance to catching a lover than keep
ing a husband. That may be so, but
the men are worse. They cease to be
lovers too soon after marriage, and
the trouble begins-the trouble that
Mr. Ingersoll would try to remedy by
a divorce, but try in vain. Every
wife knows her duty aud so does her
husband. Let them perform it and
be happy and make the children hap
py. There is an old gander at my
house who for many days has stood
by his mate while she sets on her nest.
She plucks the down from his breast
and covers her eggs. When she leaves
them forfood he escorts her to the grass
and escorts her back with a dignity
and a devotion that are impressive.
My respect for geese has greatly en
larged since I made their more inti
mate acquaintance. Brun ARr.
EPL THE INTRUDE.-That
disease is propagated by
the innumerable microbes, germs,
etc., which fill the air we breathe and
the water we drink, there can be no
question. These microbes attack the
human body and breed. poison in
many shapes. Recent - experiments
read before the congress of surgeons
at Berlin leave no doubt that the way
to cleir the system of these germs is
to force them out -through the pores
of the skin. S. S. S. does this in the
most efficient way. It cleans them
out entirely, and the poison as well.
Mr. F. Z. Nelson, a prominent and
wealthy citizen of Fremont, Nebraska,
suffered for years with scrofula, and
it continued to grow worse in spite
of all treatment. Finally, four bot
tles of Swift's Specific cured him.
He writes: "Words are inadequate to
express my gratitude and favorable
opinion of Swift's Specific."
