A WORD TO REPUBLICANS.
Tho hope of the party lies In the
expansion of a stalwart Republican
press. The Republican who rends or
otherwise helps to support a Dunn
oratlo journal to the exclusion of one
of his own parly newspapers Is untrue
to the Republican cuuse.

The new league Is formed ostensibly
to endure 10 years, and ono clause says

Rav. Fowick Preuchn la th3
Mothodist Episcopal Church on
"Lessons From tho County
Lossons for tho Church from the Omnty
Institute" wasthothomo of Sunday even-
tng's discourso at tho M6thodlst Episcopal

the exclusion of every trace of rehgn us

pagan bad participated in tho proceedings
ho could novor have suspoctod from any
formal provision ol tho programmo that
tho corner slone ol our government is the
bible and that its hope is in Ood. It la a
suggestive fact that ovory such roloretico
came Incidentally from the Instructors from
abroad in spite of such exclusion, Tb.s ie
the ono criticism ho had to mako upon it.
And this might be pussod by but for the
concession to tho enemies of our public

they cannot help it. But thoro is a con
certed eflort to undermine them by show
ing that they are godltss, and In order to
give color tothe charge the introduction of
any sort of religious oxercists Is persistently
opposed. The stale bus no tight to train
sectarians. But the reading of tho bible
and the cflbiing of prayer are not soclarian
act:, but essential elements of true pa
triolism in citizens of this gloat nation who
profess that its Ood Is tho Lord and its
foundation is 11 is word, The church needs
to learn that educators may bo careful
about the culture of the mind and abso
lutely regardless of tho culture ot tho heart.
But an educated scoundrel la still a scoun
drel with his scoundrollsm lodupllcalod by
his education. EtAnotber loEEon is that in
sanctlfiedSenterpriso Ltho church has not
kept paco with the march of improve.
ment in other centers of life. In one
sense tho church is incapablo ot Improve
mont. The old fashioned gospol cannot
be Improved upon but methods of teaching
It and of bringing men undor its influence
may bo. Tho school exhibits showed us
tho stride ?m&de,'in educational methods
since wo were boys and girls. Can tho
church match them in Us own sphere?
Are not the children of this world wisor in
their generation than tho children of light.
Another lesson was that tho church, and
not tho school, possesses tho truo secret of
regonerative power. One almost trembled
at tho scientific demonstrations of the
tyranny of hereditary traits and early vice
and the impossibility of self-reform as il
lustrated at tho institute. But what did it
all amount to but a demonstration of tho
old fashioned doctrine of Paul that "tho
carnal mind Is enmity against Ood and is
not subject to tho law of Ood noitber in
deed can bo." Thus St. Paul and Dr,
Dalllot clasp bands across the centuries.
Theology and science roach the same con
clusion by different processes. The dif
feronce between them is, scleno can go no
ftrther but theology can. Tho badly born
aad badly trained may begin life
again. Ho may be born again oven from
above. The gospel is the power of God
unto salvation. This power is beyond tho
domain of science. Science comes to its
help however, and by Its doetrinos of
horodity and environment confirms its
fundamental doctrines of moral wreckage
and eo clears the track and gives tho gospel
tho right of way.
