Two decisions of Interest to the public
and especially to bicycle rider have just
been rendered by the supreme court of
Indiana, and in one it appeared that a
wheelman riding on tbe sidewalk ran
against a msn, knocked him down and
injured him. Tbe court holda that an
action for damages can be maintained
first, on tbe ground of negligence, as the
walk was fourteen feet wide, and there
was nothing to obstruct the passage of
the bicycle or tbe view of tbe rider, and
second, that riding a bicycle on a foot
way ia unlawful. On tbe latter point the I
court say sidewalks are for the use of
pedestrians, not persona In vehicles. It
rules that a bicycle is a vehicle, and that
person ha no more right to propel one
on tbe (idewalk than be bas to ride a
horse or drive a team there. In tbe other
case tbe accident occurred in tbe street.
A wheelman going in the center of tbe
road at tbe rate of fifteen miles an hour

twenty-five feet of tbeir faces before turn

ran away, smashed the carriage and in
jured tbe complainant, who was driving
them. Tbe court decided that bicycles
ave the same rights as teams on a high
way, and hence that a wheelman is not
liable for damages caused by frightened
horses unless he is shown guilty of negli

A STRANGE BILL OF FARE.
Rev. A. B. Heldraaa'a Dlseoarae at the
t'eatral Preabyterlaa Charea Last
"A Strange Bill of Fare" was the sub
ject of Rev. A. B. Meld ram's sermon at
tbe Central Presbyterian church last even
ing. It was a very thonghlful and able
discourse founded on tbe text found in
Hefeadetbon aahes: a deceived heart hath
The prophet In this chapter has been
giving an account of the idolatry pre
valeni in hi day, aaid tbe pastor. The
prophet holds the idolator op to tbe deri
sion of all sensible men. Now we wonder
how men could be so foolish. We forget
tbat although human customs change,
tbe human heart la still the same: idola
try ia not a thing of tbe past; man is
made to worship; he was made for God,
and cannot be happy without him. There
is in tbe soul ao insatiable hunger, which.
if not appeased by the knowledge of God,
win compel tne eoul to feed on meaner
objects. The idolator of Isaiah's day fed
himself on ashes, "a deceived heart had
turned him aside." Hundreds of men and
women throughout this land todav are
doing something just as foolish, trying to
satisfy tbe ceaseless longings of their
souls with, what may well be termed
1. Look at tbe man who has no
thought or csre beyond tbat which is con
nected with the accumulation of worldlv
substance; what is be doing? "He is feed
ing on ashes." I am no d eel aimer against
tbe incompatibility of wealth and virtue.
I would not insult your common sense by
the insane attempt to prove tbat wealth
is a curse, or tbat poverty is anything but
a condition which oo man should accept
unlet forced on bim as an inexorable
necessity. The world bas had more than
enough of that hypocritical sentimental
ism which would hold up to scorn tje
wealth of the world, and canonize Ibe poor
because they are such. Such pietistlc
tlng has no support from God's word
nut are there not many who value money
at more than money's worth? Are there
not those who regard it not only as the
highest good, but as tbe only good, and
work for it. struggle for it, worship it,
sing praises to it, live for it, dfe for it
bld everything else bodily health, in-
tellectaal culture, moral purity, spiritual
well-bting and development, everything,
as of minor importance compared with
this. Tbeir creed is, "man's chief end is
to g'.orify gold and enjoy it forever."
Such men are living far below tbe true
etandard of life. Their ideal ia a low
and a false one. It may truly be said of
them, "they are feeding on ashes." I
would not have you despise wealth, but I
would have you give tbe immortal soul
tbe first and chief place in your estima
tion and solicitude. Seek the develop
ment of your entire manhood. Tour
body, take care of it, if the dollars and
cents must go; your mind, cultivate it,
you ail have spare hours; your soul, your
real self, give it to God that be may pur
ify it and make it fit tor a higher and
nobler sphere of life than this world
2. Look at the devotee of sensual
pleasure. What is be doing? He, too.
is feeding on ashes. I, for one, do not
believe In pious melancholy. The relig
ion of Jesus Christ is on the side of joy
ousness, and liberty, and manliness.
There are many who regard Christianity
as a stern and solemn life of self sacrifice
which subtracts ratber than multiplies
their joys. Many modern christians have
taktn their pitch from the awful semi
tones of tbe dark ages, rather than from
the joyous notes that came from the lip
of David and Paul. Some of us were
raised in churches framed in graveyards,
tbe only sign on the front being tbat of
the undertaker, as if to imitate that bis
was the principal business conducted
within. Many christians are solemn only
because it is tbe fashion; they seem lo
imagine that religion is never to be men
tioned cbeerfu.ly except in tbe newspa
pers anJ at conventions. A young man.
in purchasing bis first silk hat.asked the
hatter to put a band ot crape around it,
not because be was mourning for any
btdy. but because, as be said, be bad seen
others wear such a band and thought it
looked well and becoming. I appeal
from this sour-faced piety, to tbe joyous
worship of tbe bible. Only tbe back
slider tbe sinner and the hypocrite are
told to weep and mourn. But tbe differ
ence between tbe happiness of tbe chris
tian and that sensualist consists is this
the christians source of happiness is
within tbe sensualist' without. The
man who give himself up to a steady
round of pleasures is dependent upon
tbat for nappiness. lie is therefore a
slave; the christian is a free man. The
man who "goes in" for a good time, who
say to himself, "Tske your Sing, banish
care, cast seriousness to tbe winds, eat.
drink and be merry." ia a fool. To give
oneself up to pleasure of any kind ia to
mis lt in any true aense. Mere amuse
ment eooa clove. If aaliaf action could be
found in tba sensual deliitbta of tbia
orld, aurely Solomon would have found
it; be sought for it in all directions: he
tried it on all levels high and low and
he fsiled. We see him, in spite of hi
wisdom, bis knowledge, and bis riches, a
disappointed man wandering amid tbe
grandeur be bad created, through gardens
whose bloom turned to ashes, amid mar
ble halls tbat seemed to echo only tbe
emptiness of bis own feverish life, and
bear tbe threnody of his burdened heart
Behold, all is vanity and vexation of
apirit." Yes, after a!l his experiments in
tbe direction of sensual pleasure, be waa
forced to confess tbat be bad been "feed
inir on ashes."
There is another class who are feeding
on ashes namely, those who are stuffing
themselves with tbe rubbish of infidelity
Tbey seem to imagine tbat it savors of
advanced intelligence to call in question
tbe genuineness and authenticity of tbe
scriptures, and bold up to ridicule the
doctrines, in tbe belief of which tbe best
men in the world baa ever known lived
and died I do not deny tbat there have
been in tbe history of tbe world, men of
genius and eloquence who denied the ex
istence of God, tbe immortality of tbe
soul, and almoat every other doctrine to
bich the christian believer fondly
clings. But such men have been few
and far between, and not a few of these
before they paased out of life were con
strained to confess that they bad all
along been "feeding on ashes." In the
hole progress of civilization, infidelity
bas nothing to show absolutely nothing
that in any way contributed to tbe
happiness, tbe comfort, the liberty of
mankind. Where are the asylums and
Institution of mercy founded by infidel
ity and supported by infidelity, pronoun
ced against God and tbe bible, and yet
doing work for tbe amelioration of hu
man suffering and sorrow? Where are
tbe educational institution built and
endowed by infidelity ? What are Yale,
Harvard, Princeton, Cambridge, Oxford,
and tba whole host of other institutions
f higher education? They are the chil
dren of the church of Jesus Christ. The
meanest and most utterly uaelesa thing on
God s earth today is Infidelity. Stand
Ing amid tbe Buffering, groaning, dying
nation of tbe world doing absolutely
nothing, save trying to impede those who
are toiling until they fall exhausted Into
tbeir graves, in their endeavors to bless
the race. There is no man so far behind
tbe age, as be who "sailb in hi heart
there i no God." Tbe greatest fool on
earth ia the man who, with the accumu
lated benefits of the gospel before him, ia
till fool enough to cast the gospel aside
saving: "There 1 nothing in It.
How, In the name of God, then, doe so
much come out of it? If there is one
here tonight who is stuffing his brains
