RICH AND GORGEOUS, BUT NOT
Sittiug alone at my window, this bright,
beautiful Sabbath morning, a weary in
valid, and as such shut off from the out side
woild, with all its pomp, display and hol-low-headodncss;
a question which lias so
often before presented itself to my mind,
again arises uppermost in my thoughts, as I
gaze idly on the moving throng in the street
below, as each individual wends his or lu-r
way to somo fashionable church. The
question is this: Why do people consider
it necessary to dress so extravagantly to at
tend the house 0! God, and does the
thought ever occur to those who may have
the means to indulge their tastes in this
matter of dress, how many of God's poor
they may keep away from their father's
house by thus gratifying their own pride
.lad self indulgence? There the rich and
poor meet together aixl the Lord is maker
f them all. Have the rich then any right
to shame those that have not, and by start
ling contrast of their magnificence with the
plainness of the poor, drive them from
God's house or expose them while there to
painful humiliations? Is it good bree liii"
or kind, to say nothing of your duty as a
tollowerut the meek and lowly Nazarene,
to make the pour feel out ot i.lae.--
intruders iu fact, upon ground to which
their right is as undoubted us your uwn?
Nor is this all the bitter fruits that ure
born of this worst kind of worlllincss
that is shielding itself under a wretchedly
thin di..gui-e of deference to the sanctuary.
There is a family, we will say, in moderate
circumstances, enabled by the temperance
and industry of the father, and .strict ec-u
.'my of the mother, to get along comfoit
ably and pay all their indebtedness. Tiey
desire to bring their children up in the
church, and in.i.t upon t'.i-ir regular at
tendance at some church the parent, may
choose for them. All goes well for aw-hile,
but. by and by, as tin; children glow c. l.-r
the f tot becomes painfully apparent, to
their mind tint they are ti"t dressed as
line or stylish as many that bow the knee
with them in the same sanctuary. They
may be ia ide more conscious of this fact
by oer-hearii:g a whispered set:te.-:ce a
suppressed titter, or by seeing a slight
shiug of the shoulders between some bet
ter dressed companions of their own ac.
What are the f'reliug. thus awaken -d In
their young, an I heretofore happy hearts?
ami wh.it is the con.equence! They return
home unhappy avid li..itiiie I, an 1 begin
to clamor for either finer clothing, or to be
al. owed to absent them.e!ve. from Go I s
lloii.e u'tog. ther. Here Is a sad di'emaia
t'-r the poor mother. Shecannotoot.tr
forget the duty she owes her children as to
allow them to get in t;u-habit of rot at
tending church; still tier tender mother
heart '.'utinot compel them to gi nud sub-j.-ct
them to this painful humiliation again.
What, then, is to be done? She cor.f'-is with
her hu.sband and not withstanding his assur
ance that he is already dres-itig hi family
to tile extent of hi ability, she begs l.i.n to
try and manage some way by which they
may be dres.el better; and so it imp; i-".s that
by and by . the children are drcsse 1 befer
then their parent, cm offord. and some
body must pay fr the extravagance. I do
not mean that they are tempted to steal but
I do say they ohind. Tiiey iii-m s. iee
how to get it out of the milliner, out of the
dr.-. maker, or out of the merchant. They
intend to 111 ike one h-m 1 wash the other,
and they go in debt an 1 resort to petty
111eannes.es to bring it about. And this
i)e. in- to drc better then they caa afford,
is taking ml the ven e.iamel of their vir
tue taking out the very stainiiu of their
r. ligious life. "Why b you n.-t attend
church;" asked the writ'. r of a poor hard
working woman, who was complaining of
the little comlort she had in this life. "At
tend church 1" she repeated ; th.-n, with a
w. ary sigh, added, "oh the church is only
for the rich and aristocratic and those who
can dress in silks and velvets and not for
such poor unioiiuuaies us j.
How my heart echoed that pier woman's
sigh and how I wished that it was fashion
able to go to church, if to no ether place 11
earth, simply and plainly attired, and save
the purple, and flue linens, silks and satin s
and jewelry, for receptions and grand dress
