SOUTHERN STANDARD MCM I NN VI LLE. TENNESSEE.SATURDAV, MBR. 7,1891.
ALKXANDF.U MACr.AKUI'.N, I. I).
Tin1 writer of t In Epistle to I hi1 II"
brews is vi ry urgent that tlie lie
brow Cliristiniis sliuuld hold fast to
the profession of their faith without
wavering not casting away th"ir
confidence. Confidence is a word that
expresses the very essence and heart
of the joyful standing that Christian
men and women have. A Christian's
greatest blessing is, not only that he
may cherish loving, humble, and yet
unbounded confidence in regard to
God, but that he may make a clean
breast of all that lies upon his heart
and speak out frankly his whole
wishes, thoughts, and purposes. He
also can maintain an uutreinulous
courage in the. face of all exteriral cir
cumstances, and a confidence which
looks very calmly on' to. the end of
all, resting upon the righteousness
and the love of God.
This confidence is the robe that
should not be thrown away, but
drawn tighter around, amid the con
stint, unnoticed attention and hostile
power of daily duties, present cares,
and visible things. Again, young
minds, unsettled minds, and unstable
minds, and minds that are much in
fluenced by poplar literature and the
like, are only apt to say, "Oh, there
is much that is come to be questioned,
that it seems there is nothing cer
tain." Is it any reason for giving up
a belief because so many people deny
it? There is nothing here below that
is not God's; what will go will be the
hay f.nd stubble -which, in all
churches and in all creeds, rest not
upon the true foundation. Let not
your eyes lie blinded to the truth
which shines through it all, the truth
of the immortal power of the Christ
t!:;:t die mid lives. There is noway
of keeping the freshness of your faith,
and the eourage of your confidence
except by frequent contemplation of
that great cross and Him that died
there. Rest your.-el ves on Chrtst,and
you will be able to say with a hope
that is not moonshine, and with a
courage that is not presumption,
"We have confidence towards God
and boldness in the presence of all
tribulations a confidence that
shiinks not from death and a bold
ness in the clay of judgment."
A Great Choice.
Of all the life-hinges that issue in
gain to character there is one that
stands out supreme in its moment.
One choice is the happiest of any. If
made in the morning hours it will
give the boom of a secret peace
through a long day's strife, power in
weakness, and a serene gladness at
eventide. It is a decision for God.
The world and the things ot the
world magnetize the mind and insen
sibly drag the life down from high
levels, unless a borrowed energy en
ters the spirit, But "seek first the
kingdom of God," and the needed
strength is found. A consecrated life
is a rich life, whatever its nominal
surroundings. Fuller speaks of one
who being blessed during many
years with much prosperity remark
ed : "I enjoy God in all things."
And after a time he became very
poor: "Now," said he. "I enjoy all
things in God."
And when eternity draws near, the
peace deepens, the gladness has a
wonderfully sweet and incommuni
cable note. Sir Philip Synder, who
had made this choice, was carried
from the field of Zutphen mortally
wounded. Said he, "I would not
change uay joy for the empire of the
world." Ignatius, summoned to the
dreadful doom of death by wild
beasts in the amphitheatre of Rome,
could say, "Now, indeed, I begin to
be a disciple; I weigh neither invis
ible nor visible things in comparison
of an interest with Christ."
The life that has turned once and
forever upon this hinge will be a life
directed to the best aims, and reach
ing continually onward and upward
to perfection of character. It will be
a manly life. There is no heroism
like Christian heroism, and will be
protected and established life, found
ed on a rock. A wish, a purpose,
prayer, the stretching forth of the
hand of faith, and our last life-hinge
may be a fact. .
How We Are Apt to Forgive.
Christina at Work.
A minister once made an effort to
show one of his Church members the
duty of forgiving another member
who had done him a serious injury
After administering a great deal of
Milvice, without producing
5 iDTe-sjon, the pastor thought
e would try what virtue there
1 in scripture, and quoted the
i ie u.i ,: "If thine enemy hunger,
fe 1 iii o; if he i hirst, give him
Inn!-; tor in so doing thou shalt
i-ip co t's of tire on his head;" to
which the aggrieved brother listened
ii .out inteiest, until his pastor
one to the "coals of fire" when his
, fl isheil, and he smote the table
with his list, saying: "That's it; I'll
In this the unforgiving man spoke
ooenly what a great many feel in
secret. We all admit that forgive-
nuss is a beautiful thing in theory;
a id still more beautiful in practice;
b it, after all, how hard it is really
to forgive. Consciously or uncon
sciously, wo often wait to "got even,"
and then the thing is done easily and
heartily. Or we wait to do our of
fending neighbor a "good turn," un
til we carry out the "burning" idea
by an illustration of our own Chris
tian magnanimity and his meanness
in a way which he will remember.
Or we argue ourselves into the belief
that we are at liberty to wait until
the offender "comes down" and asks
rgiveness, which is readily granted,
simply because it is our triumph and
11s humilation. All these are com
mon ways of forgiving, but docs any
one of them fulfil the law of Christ?
Pay fur the Pitchers.
Dr. Adam Clarke while preaching
to large congregations in Ireland, pic
tured in glowing terms the frceness of
the gospel, dwelling on the point that
the water of life could be had "with
out money and without juice." At
the conclusion of the sermon a collec
tion was taken up to send the gospel
to the heathen, This collection em
barrassed the preacher a little, as it
seemed to contradict the theme of his
sermon. As he was telling the story
to a Christian lady afterwards she re
plied: "Very true, Doctor, the water
of life is free without money and
without price but we must pay for
the pitchers to carry it in."
That discriminating remark dispels
the fog that seems to hang over the
minds of some who cannot see that
the freeness of water is one thing,and
the employment of a person to carry
it, is quite another thing. The gospel
is a free gift, without money and
without price, but those who bring
the glad tidings to others must be
supported so that they can carry on
their good work.
Look at'.it This Way.
S. S. Times.
No one of us can stand or fall all
by himself. If we do well, others are
stimulated and heljed by our well
cluing. If we do poorly, others are
disheartened and harmed by our ill
doing. We have not even the privi
lege of making a wreck of ourselves
without wrecking those who are
linked with us in the train that speeds
along our track of duty. Nor is it
possible for us to remain firmly on
that track without .giving steadiness
to other portions of the train. If we
were willing to take the consequences
of life failure, so far as we are con
cerned, we ought to hold back from
ruin for the sake of those whom our
fall would damage or destroy. If,
however, we will do our best, we are
sure to be of greater advantage there
by to others than we are to ourselves.
What an incentive this should be to
us in the line of well doing.
Hood's Sarsaparilla is on the flood
tide of popularity, which position it
has reached by its own intrinsic, un
A Good Lesson Learned.
Colonel Ludlow, who was chief of
the water department of a large city,
one day received a call from a
wealthy manufacturer, whose estab
lishment had many favors to ask of
the department. Before this man
made his request, he handed the
Colonel a $")0 bill, which the Colonel
laid upon the desk before him, with
out saying a word. When his vis
itor rose to go, however, he inquired :
"Now, my dear sir, what is this
for?" holding up the bill.
"O, that's to buy cigars for the
"Yes; then I suppose you are fond
of the weed?"
The manufacturer acknowledged
that he did like a good cigar.
"Then allow me," said the chief,
in his most genial manner, "to insist
upon your trying one of these."
He took two cigars from a box,
lighted his own with the fifty dollar
bill, and passed the burning paper to
his amazed visitor. The man said
nothing, but be never made a second
attempt to bribe Colonel Ludlow.
EARLY COLONIAL LIFE.
The Political nnJ Keonouilo Coutlltlon of
the New Ktiglautl Colonies.
In a roviowof Mr. K Woodcn's "Econ
omic and Social History of Now Eng
land" a writer for the Now York Tribune-
They took life very seriously, beyond
question. Tho town meeting1 lined poo
plo for non-attendance. Duties tochurch
and State woro compulsory. Nobody was
allowod liberty of conscience. Of course,
much of tho assumed unity of bolief
implied in tlioso rigid regulations was,
in a manner, based upon tho initial
agreement among tho proprietors of a
new plantation. Thoy would not havo
como together had they not been of ono
mind; and, being cf ono mind, tho rulos
which kept them up to tho maik civical
ly and ecclesiastically wore merely in
tho lino of a wise and necessary disci
pline No man is compelled to onllst
at least, in time of peace but having
enlisted, ho must submit to bo govornod
by tho articles of war. Hut in truth, tho
invasions of individual freedom wcro
carried very far in tho seventeenth eon
tury. Among otlcr customs,' Mr. Woo
den tolls us: "Tho impression of labor
for particular sorvico was common.
Either tho public need or tho dom.uids
of private business could onforco it. In
the karvest-timo artificers and mechan
ics, compelled by tho constable, must
loavo their crafts, unless they had har
vesting of their own, and botako them
selves to tho fields of their neighbors.
They worked for others at regular
wages, 'fixed by statute." Another cur
ious custom was that (this was in Dor
chester, 1037) "any member or houso
holder" of that community "chosen to
goo for a soiildcr" might leavo tho caro
of any business at homo to a friond,
who should bo paid at soldiers' rates. If
tho conscript was unable to obtain this
home-worker then ono of four citizens
named might "enjoyno who thoy shall
think fitt to worko in this kind for tho
helpo of need;" this substitute must
work or pay a fine.
Efforts to regulato wages by statuto
were constantly being made, but of
courso invariably failed. In 1003 tho
General court made a law that "master
carpenters, sawyers, masons, 'clapboard
dryvers,' bricklayers, tilers, joiners,
wheelwrights, mowers, etc., were to re
celvo not more than 2 shillings a day
when 'hoarding themselves,' or 14 penco
a day with Myott' Inferior workmen
in tho same occupations were to be lated
by a constable and two otl.er-.' :.).
sides this, "penalties were prescribed
against both giver and receiver ol extra
wages." Thero must bo no idleness,
under penalt, and special caro was de
votod to "comon coasters, unprofitablo
fowlers and tobacco-takors." Knights
of Labor and walking delegates would
have had an unhappy time in thoso days,
beyond question. Tho laborer was
sometimes fined for taking extra pay,
though tho employer was not punished
for giving it. Mr. Wooden romarks on
this: "Tho contrast in treatment of em
ployer and employed, in tho attempt to
fine ono and not the other for tho samo
offense, reflects tho notion of tho timo
regarding labor. .They firmly believed
that the laborer owed moro to society
than it owed to him." Tho rewards of
apprenticeship showed this veryclearly.
A boy might be bound from his seventh
to his twenty-first year, during tho
wbolo of which time ho received no
wages nothing hut his board and cloth
ingand at tho end of his term his mas
ter was under obligation to bestow upon
him somo such munificent provision as
"double apparel (that is, two suits ol
clothes), a musket, sword and bandoliers,
and 20 shillings." A girl, after flvo
years service, "was to receive a she-
goat to help her starting in life." Tho
conditions of service were rigorous,
moreover. Tho courts whipped, im
prisoned and fined erring servants.
On Maxwell, in York, In 1651, is thus
condemned for "exorbitant and abusivo
carriages toward his master .and mis
tress." The charges amount to 7 pounds
10 shillings, and if ho can not pay this
sum to his master "then ho may bo sold
