"A MODERN SYMPOSIUM."
In this "Modern Symposium," Mr. Fred
erick Harrison's words stands forth in bold
relief, like evil little isles of Hcsporides,
whoso glittering fruit tempts the beholder
to touch and to taste, leaving, oft-times, his
heart strewn with desd hopes and shattered
idols of love. He remarks, "How many,
whoso own faith is too evanescent to be
put into words, profess a sovereign pity for
the practical philosophy wherein there is
no place for their particular yearning f:r a
heaven to come ! They imagine them
selves to be, by virtue of this very yearning,
And are they not "by virtuo of this very
yearning, superior beings!"

peculiar habitation; but as they model
their homes, so will they, doubtless, con
tinue to model them for years to come
unlike man, who improves and remodels
tho architecture of his brain and hand with
the flight of each succeeding year. What
is it that causes this successive and ever
flowing wave of progression of human
thought and skill, but the superiority of
man over all of the animal creation; and it
is this combination of intellect and feeling
that longs for yes, that trusts even while
it doubts another life. The idea of God
aud eternity cxitsts throughout the world
glittering brightly whsre intellectual pro
gression is greatest yet faintly shines the
dervcrted beauty of its light even in the
heart of tho kneeling idolater, tho firo
worshippcr and the savage.
Rut one inuy not ignore the brilliant in
tellect and bewildering oloquenco of such
men as Mr. Harrison aud Iogersoll, whose
lips hoap with resisting strength the weight
ot irony, ridicule 'and argument, upon tho
pleading face of the ideal God, whicn hides
its loveliness in every heart; but pause not
to taste of tho golden apples toward which
their cynical hands are pointing tho
beautiful fruit whoso intoxicating power
brings the silence of death to life's best im

"I believe bucauao I am told," although
all tho grandeur, beauty and glory of tho
world surrounding us speak undeniably of
tho existence of tho unseen Uroator.
If the Maker of tho universe had fash
ioned it mcroly to amuse Himself a stage,
whoso ever-changing and multiplying di

continual sourco of interest unto His mas

If tho o'or rullng spirit of niechauical
art could so mould tho porfoct symmetry
of a physical existence, it could as per
fectly and easily create that mysterious
ontity which Mr. Harrison., with his logical,
and Prof. Huxley, with his great bialogical
knowledge, so scorns.
Of what benollt does Mr. Harrison think
that his flno mind, knowledge of art aud
versatility as a writer can be (oven though
lis Influence were to bq felt throughout all
future generations), if tho whole human
race must, eventually, become as tho dust

Christianity for the frail hypothesis that
treats of nothing oblivion that folds lm

physical but the mental beauty of life.
Etch caind capable of acrioui reflection
has, in the earthly or spiritual sphere of
ideas, its own original) and individual
dream of heaven. The realistic possession
of heaven, either in the present or future
life, could noi anchor the world in one
harbor of joy and peace unless tho desires
of each diUurcntly-crcated mind could be
gratified; and only the touch of the one

each soul may find its haven. Convinco
the human race that there is a Heaven, and
then be silent, tell not what it is and what
its inhabitants must do and wear, or you
will have destroyed the force of your in

ations of grandeur and beauty, delicate
tracery and bold decision of sculpture, aa
is this world, only purified, exalted and
more beautiful must be this hidden world.
True mothers find their most intense pleas
ure in the society of their little children, in -the
clasp of their little fingers, and tho con
fiding kisses of their love. The lovers seek
the fleeting, spring-time coronot of happi
nesB in responsive chords of tho heart.
Many and bright aro our heavens, and
