The Fifth Commandment Discussed

I.nxt Kvi nine Outline .f
Much interest and profit was rentered
ii the services at the First Methodist
church last evening. Tie "Fifth Com-,
mam'meiit Honor to Parents" was the
tb me from Kxrc'.us 20:12
'Ttoror thy r.-tl:-r find thv nrther 1 hat I hv diyn

This commandment, s-tid the pastor,
nv.ur11y divides into two pirts. the
commandment proper, and the cromise.
The tbouuhl has doubthss arisen in man;
minds why are duties enjoined upon
chrildren in the 10 commandments and
not upon parents? I', would at first
thought seini that the reverse should he
the case. The answer is susgpsud in the
constitution of human t ature. Ood hs
implanted in the paran s and especially
in the mother an instin t which prompts
to love, protect and cure for the cb Id
This instinct is universal. It is not peruN
jar to human beings. This peculiarity
of nature was traced ia the lowtr animal
InstiLct was dtfim d as that power
which impels at imls, including man, to
secure the welfare c f ' hem9tlves as indi-.
viduals of their species anil also to sub-s-erve
other wise purposes, without evi-.
dence of an understan lint; on their part
of the wisdom of the course pursued.
TLU power of instinct is undoubtedly a
direct exhibition of he wisdom of God
through them, actios; without individual
conciousoe9s or re-iscn. Ii is no d- u t
capable of being modified to some slitit
extent by thtir own ir telligence. ll cn
alFO he changed by cilture. Its chief
characteristic is ihat it is ev.dt-ntly in
tended for the t resen: good of the indi
vidual and his kird .
Man being endowed with the hijh?r
powers ef reason, ha- less instinct than
any other animal. As reason increases,
instinct decreases. Indeed, man has
unly so much instinct us is absolutely
mcess'iry for the r-rcserymion of the
tpecies. Among tliese few instincts is
the spontar.tous unr( asoring love of the
mother for thv child. This attachment
sonn ripens into strong, probably the
strongest of all love; a love which ofteu
itt ties all obstacles, thysical and moral,
and is net even t xtin uisht d by the grave.
What is so tender, s all .embracing as a
mother's love? The father ton, where
God's own institution of ih- fumilv is
properly observed, t hares in this attach
nient, so by the c.( r imon consent of all
civil, zed people, the parents who do not
protect Christ and cre for their offspring
are regirded a monstirs. It ws for
this reason doubtless that it was deemed
unnecessary to incorporate in the deca
logue a commmdnx nt for parents to love
ami care for iheir children.
But children, are not instinctively
taught to love an-1 honor their parents.
These feelints on the part of the child
are of s'ow growth. They may be culti
vated or repres-ed.
But this commandment is not addressed
to childhood prir.iarily or principally.
Attachment to pan nts so long as favors
tire receive! fiom them is naturt-.l . But
the honor to puren s that continues when
uo more favor can be expected from
them, when the in irmitics of age gatter
about them, this it is that forms the
burden of the Fifth Commandment.
There mu-t be some profound reasons
f r the incorporat on of this command
ment in the decalogue. Such a reason is
found in the fact that this commandment
recognizes and divinely sanctions mon
ogamy as an institution. It assumes
that the father an 1 mother who are thus
to )i honored by their children as long
a9 they live, are united for life by the in
dissoluble compact of marriage.
The bible expies3iy condemns poly -gamy
in so many words, and traces tie
ruin of families aid governments to vio
lations of this rule. The strength of a
nation is in itstninp You may trace
this fact a'.l through histi rt. The bible
recognizes and sarct-ous the home whpre
one father and mother are the recogn zed
an I abiding head of the home. Inhdelity
shows the cloven foot in striking at the
secuiity and performance of the hi me.
Again, honor to parents is fundamental
to character. Abraham was chosen of God
to be the ft.ther of the faithful
because of his ability to command his
children after hi on to keep Gad's law.
Eli's overthrow was for the opposite rea
son, "because his eons made themselves
vile and he restraint d them not." Obe
dience is the foundation of religious
character. To fend forth a lawless one
to walk amid law is to sacrifice him to
the demon of misrule. Obedience should
be impressed upc n the child mind. It is
the royal road to virtue, to good citiz-n-sbip
it is the oily road.
This commandment is to be obeyed un
der strong trial Obedience to this com
mandment afforcs a marked test to char
On the other hand, parents should re
member the sacted tight on the part of
the child to determine his own career
when years of n aturity are reached Any
interference wi.h the self-determining
power beyond a certain limit is disastrous.
But children should ever respect the ad
vice and counsels and warnings of pa
rental authority. Itisa sacred relation
and cannot be disregarded with impunity.
Young men ann women, make your par
entsglad bv yot.r tenderness and consid
eration. You we it to them as a sacred
A fl-igrant ca-;e of disobedience to this
commandment s when children of Chris
tian parents foiget and despise their early
training and forset their mother's prayer
and example, and abandon themselves to
vice and immorality.
The rromisa is long life long life
both individua , as illustrated in the short
and sad caree s of Absolom and Eli's
sons. But it seems to apply especially
to national life, and finds a peculiar illus
tration in the history of the Chinese,

Patrons of the theatre can look for

sical comedy this evening, when "A

At the Burtis opera house this evening
Miss Pauline Hall and ber comic opera
company will present Offenbach's melo
dious opera, "Madame Fayart." Her
company seems admirably fitted for the
peculiar roles called for, and all acquit
themselves with credit. The costumes
are appropriate, Varied and beautiful
The opera itself is not only musically and
dramatically a masterpiece but affords
Miss Hall an unusual opportunity for the
display of Ler vocal and histrionic abili
ties. She assumes six different charac
ters in the piece, and as she does them
all successfully, it is an evidence of her
versatility ss an actress.
On Tuesday evening, Jan. 5, at the
Burtis opera house, the big New York
comedy success of "Dr. B 11" will be seen
for the first time in Davenport. This
comedy has been one of the greatest suc

years, having played long and prosper

of a party of young people whose chape

ful woman, whose ideas of the onerous
duties were, to say vue least, unique. It
was at the seashore in Maine. The
party were preete.l each morning, and
anxiously asked at intervals if they
were enjoying themselves, but other

lovely evening pretty girl and her es
