'The Good Old Times," Not Eriual to
l.ev. M. J. Savage in The Arena
The brightest period of the Church
which I can discover is somewhere
about December, 1890. I hardly care
to go buck even a hundred and fifty
rears. Then the deacons took their
regular toddy between sermons. It
was no infrequent thing for reverened
gtntlemen to go home after an even

brickin it heavier than they could
conveniently carry, men me peo
ple in New England were seated in
their church by the selectmen ot the
town, according to their wealth and
social rank. Single men and women
were put in separate galleries by
themselves. It was common for the
tithing men to speak to disorderly
persons in church, or to rap over the
heads with their canes the careless
urchins who forgot their behavior
There were no fires in churches, and
the minister had sometimes to preach
in great coat and mittens. Benevo
lent and missionary societies were
either unheard of or nut aside as ques
tionable novelties. .Slavery was sup
ported from the Bible, north as well
as south. Even President Jonathan
Edwards could buy a boy in Connec
ticut and take him home behind him
on his horse, and when remonstrated
with by a pestilent abolition deacon,
could preach a sermon in defence of
slavery. There were no Sunday
scnoois, no religious magazines or
newspapers and of the thousand be
nevolent enterprises of the age, hardly
one was existent.
And yet, in spite of these facts,
there are large numbers of people per
petually bemoaning our degeneracy,
and sighing over the departure of the
"good old times" of our early Ameri
We worship such persons as Wash
ington or Hancock as political saints,
for the not very conclusive reason
that they are dead, and their faults
are lost sight of in the blaze of their
glory. Our living heroes will be

We can do fairly, when we lay our
selves out, at calling names in poli
tics even now. But all the bitterness
of our partisanship is the very honey
of sweet fellowship compared with
the fierce hatreds of the olden times.
in the days ot ijueen Anne, it was a
common thing for fashionable ladies
to wear little patches on their faces to
indicate which faction they belonged
to; and theshillaieh days of an Irish
borough election hardly carried the
pirty conflict farther than they did.
Even in this country, only a little
while ago, members of different par
ties were hardly on speaking terms
with each other, and their wives and
daughters had no social intercourse.
The newspapers have not quite for
gotten the traditions of Billingsgate
yet; but the loud barking is mostly
stage show. Their teeth are paste
board. They shake hands and laugh
behind the scenes. And whatever
may be the secret plots and machina
tions of which each party is always
accusing the other, it is a hopeful fact
that both parties are compelled to
base any hopes of success at the polls
on justice, integrity, and a noble de
votion to the welfare of the whole
people. Croakers always have had a
special faculty for seeing "breakers
ahead." and smooth water behind.
But the sober facts of history justify
the statement that never was the ship
