uc jrSesi congretruion ot the series
gathered at the First Methodist church
last eveniDg to Hsteirt the Eighth Com
mandment as presentel by the pastor,
Rev. F. W. Merrell. After a song ser
vice which was heart.ly participated in
by all, the speaker announced bis test
from Exodus 20:15
"Thou shalt not steal."
Pope in his "Essay on Man." has said,
remarked the preacher, lhat an honest
man is the noblest woik of God, and
Shakespeare makea Hamlet observe that
"to be honest ts this world goes is to be
one man picked out of ten thousand."
It is a preat thing to be strictly honest.
This world would be .1 far different and
rietter plaee of existence if this command
ment were obeyed.
Stealing was defined as an interference
with property rights taking by force or
fraud what belonps U another. Society
as at present constituied is bused upon
private rights in the possession of prop
erty. And this set ms to be the natural
method of corsiitutiig society, for ihe
distinction of "mine" snd 'thine'' seems
to be an instinct. M in shares it in com
mon with the lower tnimnls. The very
beasts have their private rights in bones
and food and kennels To interfere with
this princlnle is to destroy society as now
canstituted without i Cording the hope of
nconstituting it according to any other
principle. Where tb;ft is common and
prop rty rights are not protected, there
civilization cannot rlourihh. The very
thievt s regard this pr nciple among them
selves, whence comes the proverb "Honor
among ttitves." Communities like
the Shakers are only apparent exceptions.
They are really la ge families.
Then again the recognition of property
rights secures the miral development of
man. Industry, prudence, self-denial,
patience, perseverci ce, regard for the
rights of others, tenevolence, all 6r!
either originated or largely stimulated
and developed by recognition of rights of
propsrty. Herce we sec the necessity for
The question is often asked in great
serioufcness, "is it ever right to steal? '
The esse in mind .s the altc rnativc of
starvation or theft. In this favored land
there is little occasion for such an alter
native, but cases do sometimes occur in
our great cities. For instance, on ac
count w as recently published of a hus
band and father v ho had been in good
circumstances, but was so reduced as
lhat he chose to con mit suicide lhat his
family might come to the notice ef char
ity. Far le it from t ie to pronouce judge
ment on suc'a a one'. By the law of
Moses it was permitted to take what was
necessary to satisfy hunfier without the
implication of stealing.
In ibis country l y application to the
proper authorities in nearly all our com
munities this fearful alternative of star
vation or stealing n av be avoided. The
consideration of thi.s commandment in its
1. Hobery of s If We do not com-1
monly consider litis commandment in
this light, but it is v.s possible to rob Self
as others. A preat many are committing
the worst potsiblo robberies in their
own homes, and from their own mouths,
and the months an 1 backs and brains of
their families. A man earning barely
enough to keep his family comfortably
will often spend a large portion of his
earnings en tobacc3, and let his family
suffer or else appeal to charity. Or such
an individual will spend nearly all his
earninc in the salo )n and say, "Hav'nt I
the right to do wbt I will with my own?"
The answer is, "N V most emphatically.
"You have no right to rob your wife and
little ones of what you owe them as hus
band and father, v z , a support " Such
conduct, St. Paul says, makes a man
worse than an inflc el. It is also posible
to break this commandment by a sinful
miserliness, by boarding money that
ought to be spent for education, books
and the. comtorts and accessaries of life
The miser is a self -robber.
2. Kobbery of others There is lets
need to speak of those sio9 which society
abhors and the law punishes, of house
breaking, and pocl:et-picking, and bank
robbing, etc., for the reason that such
violators of this law are rarely found in
church. Christiaiiity has no hfflnity for
such sinners. Ch -istianlty demands re
pentance of al me i, and tbe genuineness
of this repentance is measured by tbe
honesty of their lives. When tbe burg
lar will deprsit lis kit of tools with the
preacher, as tbey did sometimes with
Jerry McCauley, then there is hope.
Idleness is the most ordinary and respect
able way of breaking this commandment.
The man who sais "The world owes me
a living," snd thn proceeds to play the
tramp and live w thout work should be
soon made to feel tte truth of Paul's
words, "If any man will not work, neith
shall he cat "
Adulteration is a form of stealing that
shows bow coma only this law is broken.
Hitrdly an article of food or clothing that
is not adulterated. This is a heinous sin
and also violates the Sixth com
mandment as well. Liquors, too,
are most shamofully and shockingly
adulterated. It is taking money for that
wnicn is not broad, it is robbing not
only the one individual but all that are
dependent on that one.
Gambling is ansther flagrant form of
violating this rule. Betting on elections,
on horse races, c eg fights, etc., show the
ease with whit h this law is violated.
Such gains are ill-gotten gains, and the
law of the land is against such practices.
Sharp practice in trade should also be
specified examples of which are so num
erous on every side.
3. Robbing God Men rob God with
impunity. They rob Him of tbe seventh
dayof rest and worship. They rob Him of
of their services without a qualm of con
science. And j et this sin can be no less
Heinous in . Ood a sight than the other
f orn s of sin me itioned. Honesty spelled
with a big H rll cover the whole ground
of man's relations with his neighbors and
God. Such a man ts ruly the toblest
work of God.

it naa been rumored that the head
officers of the Illinois National Guard
have been making irquiry of the differ
regiments as to about how many men
coma De counted upon in the event of
war with Chili. An Argcs reporter
called on Col. William Clendenin in
Moline this morning to whom the latter
stated that he had received no official in
quiry whatever in regard t what the
S x'.h regiment could do.
"Do you think there is any likelihood
of the state troops being called out in the
event of hostilities," asked tbe reporter.
"No I do not," he replied, "but I think
however, that volunteers from Ihe na
tional guard would in all probability be
called for as they have some knowledge
of military affairs and of course would be
far superior to raw recruits."
"Don't you think the regular army
would be sufficient for the present?'.' asked
"That would be hard ti tell," said the
colonel; "our regular army now numbers
only about 25.000 men, and they could
not all be spared, and it would be hard
to estimate just how many cou'd be mus
"Then you do not anticipate a call up
on the state militia?"
"No, sir, I do not, but if such a thing
should occur I think that the Sixth regN
ment would not be found wanting, and
that if called upon we could, muster in
the neighborhood of 500 men."
Nevertheless it is rumored tbt the Rod
man Rifles will have an imporiant ses
