Tho Sluggard Advised to Study
The, Ways of the Ant.
In this'diBOOurBO Dr. Talmago draws
his illustrations from a realm soldom
utilized for moral and rolipious pur
posos; text, Provorbs, vi, (> 8, "Go to
tho ant, thou sluggard, oon?idor her
ways and bo wiso, which, having no
guido, ovoroeor or ruler, provldolh her
moat IQ tho summor ana gathorcth hor
food in tho h ar vont."
Tho moB*t of Solomon's writings havo
porishodr Thoy havo gono out of oxiat
enoo as thoroughly as tho 20 books of
Pliny and most of tho books ofiEsohyluB
and Euripides and Yarro and Quinti
lian. Solomon's Song and Eoolcuiastcs
and Proverbs, prosorvedby inspiration,
aro a small part of his voluminous pro
ductions. Ho was a groat soiontist.
Ono vorso in the Biblo Buggosts that bo
was a botanist, a zoologist, anoruitholo
gist, an ichthyologist and know all
about roptilia. I Kings iv, 33, "He
spake of trees, from tho o o dar troo that
is in Lobanon oven unto tho hyssop
that springoth out of tho wall; ho Bpako
also of boasts and of fowl and of orcop
ing things and of nabos." Bosidosall
these scientific .works, he composed
3,000 proverbs and 1,005 songs.
Although Solomon lived long boforo
tho mioroscopo was oonstruotcd, ho was
also an insootologist and r/ntohod and
desoribes 1 tho spidor build ita ?uspon
sion bridge of silk from trco, calling it
tho spider's wob, and ho notioas its
skillful foothold in climbing tho smooth
wall of tho throneroom iu Jerusalem,
saying,'-"Tho spidor t&koth hold with
1er hands and is in king's palaces."
But ho, is ospooially intorcstod in tho
ant and recommends its habits as
worthy of study and imitation, saying,
"Go to tho ant, thou sluggard, oonBidor
her ways and bo wiso, whioh, having
no guido, ovcraoor or ruler, providcth
her moat in tho eummor and gathoroth
hor food, in tho harvoBt."
But it was not until about 300 years
ago, when Jan Swammcrdam, tho Ron
of an apothecary at Amstordam, Hol
land, bogan tho study of tho ant undor
poworful lons that tho full force of
Solomon's injunction waB understood.
Tho groat Dutch Boiontiet, io his ex
amination of tho insoot in my text, dis
covered as groat a display of tho wis
dom of God in its anatomy as astrono
mers diBOOvcr in thc honveno and was
BO absorbed and wrought upon by tho
'.Lw.onders ho disoovorod in tho ant and
other insoot^ that body and mind gavo
way, and ho txpired at 43 yoars of ago,
a martyr of tho gi'oatsoionoo of insec
No one but God could have fashionod
' tho insoot epokon? of in tho toxt or
givon it such goniuB of in nt ino t, its wis
dom for haivcsting nt tho right timo,
its wondors of antoneio, by whioh it
gathers food, and of mandi bl on, whioh,
instoad of tho motion of tho human jaw
up and down in mastication, movo from
sido to sido; its nervous Byotcm, its en
larging doors in hot weathor for moro
sweep of breczo, its modo of attaok and
dofonso, dosing tho goto at night
against bandit invadors; its purification
of tho o nrth for human rcHiduuoo, its
social lifo, its republican government,
with tho oonsont of tho govornod; itu
matornal fidelities, tho habit of thoso
oroaturos of gathering now and then
undor tho dome of tho ant hillock,
soomingly in consultation, and thou
departing to cxeouto thoir difforont
But Solomon would not oommond all
tho habits of tho ant, for nome of them
aro as bad as somo o? tho habits of tho
human vaco. Somo of thoso mn all oroa
turos aro dosporadoos and murdorors.
Now and then thoy marshal thcmsolvos
into hosts and maroh in straight liuo
and como upon an onoampmont of thoir
own raoo and doBtroy its ocoupants, ex
oept tho young, whom thoy oarry into
captivity, and if tho army oomo back
without any such captive B they aro not
permitted to enter, but aro sent forth
to mako moro suooossful oonquost.
Solomon givon no commendation to
ouch sanguinary bohavior among inscols
any moro than ho would havo com
mended sanguinary bohavior among
mon. Thoso littlo oroaturos havo
aomotimes wrought fearful damage,
and thoy havo undermined a town in
New Granada, whioh in time may drop
into tho abyss thoy havo dug for it.
But what aro tho habits whioh Solo
mon would onjoin whon ho says, "Con
sidor hor ways and bo wiso." Pirat of
all, providenoo, forethought, anticipa
tion ol' ooming nooos&itios. I am sor
ry to say thoso qualities aro not oharao
toristio of all tho ants. The BO crea
turo? of God aro divided into granivor
?U8 and carnivorous. Tho lattor aro j
not frugal, but tho formor aro frugal. I
Whilo tho air is warm and moving
about is not hindorod by ioo or snow
bank thoy import thoir oargoos of food.
Thoy bring in thoir oaravan of provi
sions; thoy haul in thoir long train of
wheat or oom or oats, Tho farmors
aro not moro busy in J uly and August
in reaping thoir harvest than aro tho
ants busy in July and August reaping
thoir h*rvost. Thoy staok them away;
they pilo them up. Thoy quostion

Furthermore, go to the ant and con

Sotno ofthoso oroaturos mix tho loaves
of tho fir and tho oatkins of tho pino for

othora go out- as huntors looking for
food, while others in dbmoatic duties
stay at homo. Twenty spooks of tho
food they aro moving toward thoir
granary put upon a balnnoc would
hardly make tho scales quiver. AU of
it work on a small scale. 'I'.'io o is no

it is insignificant. Anything that God
in Kia providonoo puta beforo us to do
is important. Thc noodle has its oflioo

know what beeamo of tho man ia tho

apology was of no avail.
Thoro ia no need of our wasting iiuio
and onorgy in longing for aomo other
sphere. Theroaro plonty of peoplo to
do tho big and resounding work of tho
church and tho world. No laok of
brigadior generals or master builders or

God would have us to do. Lot ua do

Knight errant through tho vernal camps, .
Whoro jasmines, in thoir virgin joy,
Relumo perfumed "lamps."

Ii y many a wild and weird lagoon,
Whore erst tho songs of Marion's mon
Rang to the midnight moon.

Of deods divine, divinely sung;
She thrilled him with tho surge of Greek
And Homo's nu} esl io tonguo.
Deeply ho folt that ancient graoo,
That powor, which bade the song outroll,
Tho song of Helen's Intal faoo
And Hector's patriot soul.
So dcoply-that in aftor days
To his own Troy, beloaguerred long,
Sereno sifnid the battle's blazo
Ho sang a olarion song.
Hts Troy wont down, but oo'r tho hush .
Of tho spent storm if blood and tears,
Swootor than lilt of lark or thrush
Up tho resounding years.

And soften o'en afooman's broast,
No oompaas bounds thy toope and skill-.
No South, North, hast or West.
Tho wholo world trembles to thy charms;
la ohastoned by thy mystic spell,
Art rose a viotor overarms
When Hermes strung tho shell.
Measured by outward shows alone,
How sad our Poet's lifo would seem

Rusts in tho.shoaih of Time.
Thus, now that Carolina o?11e ?
No longer on her soldior song;
And Peace, with swoot oblivion, falls
Upon tho "foatal guns,"
Tho lyrist of her valiant past,
Tho limner of her radiant land,
Receives his monument, at lost,
From Carolina'n hand.

Mi mor lui Day.
April 20 th was a sacred day
to tho entire Southland, It
was sot apart for a memorial of
tho brave men who gave up all
in defence of their homes and
principles. We fully agree with
tho Augusta Chronicle when it
says "there has boon too much
ol' apology by sou (.hern men,
politicians and business men
seeking northern favor, for tho
position of the south in the war
for souihum independence Wo
hear too much about southern
mon having fought for princi
ples 'tliey believed to be right.'
Tlie inference is that while wo
now know they were wrong,
nevertheless. our fathers were
honest because they 'believed'
tho south was right. This is rot.
The people of the south believe
today the south was right, just
as much as they believed in the
sixties, and fair-minded men at
tho north are conceding it.
While southern men may frank
ly accept the arbitrament of
arms, and believe that it i? bet
ter to have ono great united re
public than to have two rival
governments in this country,
and while the right of secession
may have beeii irrevocably set
tled, this does not determine
that in 1801 the southern states
went to war for wrong princi
ples, or that in deciding to with
draw from the Union they
woro rebels. The loyalty of
southern men to the reunited
country nooda no argument. It
is not iii dispute. J3Ut in uiUoi ty
be loyal now, it is not necessary
to be disloval to the memory of
the brave men who fought and
