THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 16. 1919
PAGE FIFTEEN mm dm REPRESENT AFRICAN REPUBLIC AT PARIS SERIN m i E? 0. Or DECK! A specially prepared MuUifM-s' Day trmcin was delivered at the first X izr j urenti rhiirch last Sunday by ilie Hew A O. leck. Members of the clum-h ; wf-re no impressed with the sermon f that they unanimously voted to request That it be published for the benefit of those who did not hear it, and it is ac- J "ordn-ly presented. Mr. Deck's ser mon follows: 'Her children rise m. and eoJl her blessed, her husband also praiseth her. A woman that feareth the ixrd. she shall be praised." IToverbs. 31: 28-30. Motherhood! Whal a charming word to the lover of home and all that is pure and sood! How delightful are the associations that cluster around ih.il. simple term! Admitting that i h"-. were never in the -world's history .o fnany godly, consecrated mothers as l here are today, we recognize, however, ih" h'ad and lamentable fact that in our diiv, considering .the knowledee and ;u;vant:tKes we hnve, motherhood does md have the place and respect it should have and consequently many cj.''rn,.nf families unnecessarily be come extinct or are unduly and un scnpUirrJiy small. r To much of modern society, the mo: her of today is an object of pity rather 1h:in "I queenly honor, and children in the estimation of not a few hi.1 hands and wives are an ineonven iencc, if not a nuisance. Like the un 'oi lunate women of old. particularly in Bible lands, how many wives of today, with their husbands, implore the Al miphty to lift from them the reproach of lu ins childless and perpetuate their name through the coming generations'.' .hailing from the testimony of reliable ph sicians. many of our women are en treating the profession for absolute preventatives, and in not a few in stances, the doctor is asked to become an accomplice in prenatal murder. Owing to permanent physicap infirm ities for which they may not be re sponsible some worthy families will al ways be childless, but let such hus hut'ds and wives as are physically, mentally and morally fit. not fail to obey Cod's command, given in the be ginning of the race, "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and "subdue it," and then further obey the injunction to bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Ixrd. Napoleon onee said in his laconic style, "The great need of France is mothers." While many of us deplore the great general's own domestic fail ings, believing that his divorce from the faithful and affectionate Josephine w:s unjustifiable and his remarriage to Maria Louisa, archduchess of Austria, unscriptural, we nevertheless accept his words as fitting for America, "The irreat n"od of America is mothers." Tes, mothers! Xot wasps' of fashion, nor coquettish street butterflies, hut mothers! Not poodle dog nurses, nor Parrot and canary bird keepers, but mothers, mothers whose children "rise up and call her blessed." In this discourse we will note moth erhood influences as they affect thf child during three distinct periods or tau'es, viz: the prenatal, post-natal and posthumous. Or. to state in simpler form, first maternal influences : V'f i -THESE DUE SOLES 11 BY M1LL1S "After giving Neolin Soles a thor ough trial, I would not go back to the srilcs I used to wear even though the cost were less. I receive twice the service from shoes with Neolin Soles," writes G. P. Jones, of Omaha. More than 10,000,000 pairs of Neolin Si les have been put on American shoes.

OS. as they affect the unborn conceived child; second, influences as they affect the child after birth, particularly while the child is in the mothers care; and third, influences as they impress the son or daughter and the succeed ing generations after the mother's de parture. This outline, covering so large a field as it does, we can only make a general survey of the subject and in this discourse, without dealing with scientific) technicalities, can only make some interesting and important ob servations. Prenatal Influences "When should the training of a child begin," was onee asked of Oliver Wen dall Holmes? "Two hundred years be fore birth," was his terse reply. Im possible, shrieks some one! Extrava gant! cries another. But is it im possible? is the statement extrava gant? Do not scientific observations ! and the Scriptures attest the correct - I nesq of the nrinni-nlta In f ,K Scriptures teach, and science corro borates, that moral tendencies virtuous or corrupt, are transmitted throogh the descendants by the law of her edity, for a longer period than two hundred years. In the second com mand of the Decalogue, God says that he will 'Visit the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation and show mercy unto thousands no doubt, genera tions) to them that love Him." The theologion who believes in the right eousness and justice of God, does not believe that this is a direct and penal visitation, in which God directly pnn ishes the children' for the sins com mitted by the parents, but that this Is simply a statement that "bad blood" or "good blood" runs through and con tinues for many generations, the good evidentfy being more effective and continuing longer than the evil. Grace is surely more far reaching and en during than sin. Every student of heredity Knows that during the prenatal period, the mother impresses upon her tinhorn child traits of character, tendencies and disposi tions for good or evil. Without mini- i mixing the. external, influences 1 nthe inception of the child, no scientist fails !to recogni.e that the mother has tne i l.j.-.r ,... nr.n.it.ilfMr nf the i WO in "'ot.l 1 v.-Vvl!J,'""l. vl .j ; pre-natallv moulding the character oi : her offspring. Think, people, what ! ' must be the disposition of a child born ; ' into the world, undesired and some- , i times hated during the pre-natal , period. Mother, wts that child of : yours born of glad consent and loving , 1 desire, or born of unwelcome and j , marred by bad mental and moral im- i pressions'.' , ! Btu a word of caution Is necessary 1 here. Iet no one say. "I" am immoral 1 and wicked because 1 am a creature of ' tale, born as I am." Bad heredity and evil environment in the home accounts for much of human irregularity and , moral deficiency, but no man has an right to live an immoral life and in conscious sin because of his inherited weaknesses. Man is not wholly a vic tim of heredity and a creature of cir cumstances. If he is not a born idiot, he may impart into his soul a. new heredity, that of the second Adam, and through this new power, either change ; or master his environment. Effect of Influences Post-natal "Give he the mothers of the nation to educate," said Garibaldi, "and you i may do what you like with the boys.'' j The mother, more than any other, by her character, training and example i largely shapes the destiny of the child. 1 Consciously and unconsciously she or I ganizes and puts into operation a set ! of influences more than any man can I affect and while she is spoken of s the "weaker vessel" she-is not that in i moral influence, for good or evil. Said Ijord shaftsbury: "Give me a genera tion of christian mothers and I will undertake to change the whole face of society in twelve months." Upon the men of affairs, in the church, state and society, throughout the pages of his tory, both secular and sacred, we are ; reminded of the immensity and pro j tractedness pf the mother's influence for weal Cjr woe. "The hand that rocks 1 the cradle is the hand that moves the ; world." Let us call attention then 1 to a few of the men and women of ; genius and fame who had godleus, I christless mothers, and in some In ! stances both unchristian fathers and mothers. Lord Byron's father was a i reckless, dissipated spendthrift who deserted his wife and son when he was but a child? But what about the ; mother? Ah! The mother was like wise morally deficient. She waa proud, ill tempered and often violent in the treatment of her fatherless boy. Is it any wonder that the poetic genius spent most of his life in dissolution and licentiousness and wrote the mel ancholy poems of his life shortly be ! f ore he died at the age of thirty-six ! years. The mother of Xero was a murderess. The dancing flirt Herodias had for a mother an adulteress who "instructed" her dewd daughter to ask of the drunken King Herod for the head of John The Baptist. In Old Testament hisiory we read that "Ahaziah walked in the ways of the house of Ahab. For his mother was his counselor to do wickedly." We read of the descent ujid idolatry of Jezebel who perhaps did more to cor rupt the lsraelitish nation than anv other person during the days of Jew ish decline. Why are these facts all so carefully noted in sacred history? was it not to point out that the chief bane of the lsraelitish nation was In the nurseries of her kings? ui li maternal lniiuences are so potent for evil, are they not equally or more so, powerful for good. John Randolph stated that the only thing mat saved mm rrom atheism was the -tender remembrance of the hours when his mother taught him to pray,'' "Our Father." Mr. Cecil, who had adopted infidel views and sentiments in his youth, and prided himself in his strong arguments against religion said in the zenith o his manhood, "There was one argument I could never get over, the influence and life of a holy mother." And the pages of his tory abound with examples. Abraham Lincoln's father, the historian tells us, was shiftless, careless and lazy, but his mother, Nancy Hanks Lincoln, was an industrious, pure and womanly wo man. And Mrs. Johnson, who became Lincoln's stepmother spmetime after his mother's death while he was but a youth, was exceedingly devoted to her home and a woman of moral worth. Mary, the mother of George Wash ington, was a woman of purity and piety. Turning to the pages of church history, we discover that Susannan Wesley, a mother of nineteen children, and that, of the "Father of Method ism," John Wesley, was marked for her industry, intelligence and excep tional piety, and may be properly called the "Mother of Methodism" and time would fail to tell of the christly influences of the mothers of Luther, Augustine, Crysostom, Timothy and hundreds of others, almost of equal fame and influence. Incalculable Posthumous Influences But what after the motheer has passed away? Are her influences ended? Many of ns are today wearing the white flower betokening that moth er has gone. But is she really dead? t Jaggers-Wallace Wire Me to Buy at the Market 1 1 J AS THIS ADVERTISEMENT IS written I can buy JAGGERS WALLACE at $3 a share.

Physically she Is sleeping in the dust of the earth, out spiritually if she was christian, she is "with Christ, which is far better!" and po tentially by her never dying and active Influence, she is here in your life and heart. The story is told of a young man who ran away from home and broke his mother's heart. A telegram, informing him of his mother's death, brought him home, and bowing over the casket in which hi mother lay, he cric-d, "Oh, mother, what your life could not do, your death shall affect. This moment I give my heart to Christ." And he did. But shall we who are today wearing the bright flower, signifying that mother is still with us, compel her to bear the moral and spiritual burdens pJone, and compel the Almighty to take her to Heaven in order to give us a stronger pull heavenward? Will we not come to her side and worship and call her blessed." And rather than deco rate her grave, will we not strew upon her person an abundance of flowers and lavish upon her our tenderest af fections while she .is still with us? And when she is gone, may we be able to place upon her humble stone the epitaph, "She hath done what she could." nor fish, nor fowl, humans or dumb j brutes. For 12 or 15 hours, by day or! night, the hard working reporter, in j sunshine or shadow", in rain or shine. 1 in blizzard or cyclone, in hail or in I heat, pursues the even tenor of his or her way, invading palace and hovel, police court and public gatherings, listening to tales of woe and of glad ness, butting into weddings and fol lowing hearses to the grave, now only to be kicked into insensibility, if need be, while in the pursuit of wages that a hod-carrier would turn up his nose at. Surely, if no one else, the good Lord must love the newspaper report ers, for he has made many of them. KILL 36 JEWISH YOUTHS STOCKHOLM, May 14.
