Explication of The Law of Compen
By knowledge the intelligence of
the world is being called upon by pub
lic Expositions of Industry and Art,and
on every occasion representatives from
every State and nation confer together
in reference to rising questions, affect
ing the progress of the moral and so
cial relations of the human race, to
have the people and industries repre
mented, and with the knowledge of
one another, the material prosperity of
all may be promoted.
Reverbantly propitious in the even
tide of this century, is the heraldry of
peace and good will, so manifestly la.
den with compensation. With multi
plied observation let us investigate this
law to find the key exempting all that.

weary and the simple. This conserva

light of Trut h and illmuinating anima

as the Gospel of the poor, and human

intelligence, andi recognized ill the

Man Is determinative, and dwindles In
the span, indiscriminately proclivous
and at variance with the promptings
of the higher constitutional endow

we can only rightfully look for com

achievement will suffice tocontrol what
once seemed uncontrollable.
Man must prepare in his prelude of
caste to meet the new order of exist
ence, and they that seek shall tizd the
recompense in the resurrection of life
(aseension of the spirit). Man's ac
countability, his accotdance, his indi.

false condit ions. Therefore, earnestly
