of the national satisfaction at the news

Resent Dcmocrntic Treatment, nnd
Will Hun Their Own Ticket.
Youngstown, O., July 4. The Popu
lists aro put out at the treatment given
them during the recent Democratic
convention at Columbus and proposes
to put a separate state ticket in the
field. There can no longer bo any
doubt about that. Richard Ingals, of
this city, who Is one of the promin
ent and influential Populists of tho
state, Is authority for the statement.
He gives the information that at the
state convention of the Populists to bo
held at Columbus on Aug. 10, a sep
arate ticket will be nominated and the
party will go into the neld entirely
Independent of any outside affiliations.
This Is said to be due to tho treatment
accorded both last fall nnd at the con
vention and because of the fact that
the Populists find nothing can be
gained through a continuation of their
connection with the Democrats,
NEW SAYINGS OP CHRIST.
More About tho Oldest I'npyri Known
to Ilonr His Wouls.
New York, July 4. Several weeks ago
the London correspondent of tho Sun
cabled the news of the wonderful dis
coveries made in January last by
Messrs. Grendell and Hunt on the bor
ders of tho Libyan Desert, of the old
est papyri known bearing the words of
Christ, That correspondent now cables:
The value of this find in the Interest

world proves inestimable. It comprises
a dozen leaves, each EV& by 3V& Inches
in size, remarkably well preserved, and
clearly written In uncial characters of
the ancient Greek. It dates about sixty
years after the crucifixion.
It has easily been translated, and is
found to consist of detached sayings of
Christ, without context, each begin
ning with the wordS, "Jesus salth."
The translation will soon be published
by the Egypt Exploration Fund. An

THE CURB FOR EVIL
Concluded from Pago 8.
or still worso. It may be, In reality
this is tho difficulty which faces us.
Want of Chrlstllko living sums it all up.
Well has It been said: "It Is the concrete
which moves men. Abstract ethics have
not, nnd never will, becomo a mighty
vital power In tho world. Wo know only
ono perfect embodiment of Christian
ethics, their founder. He must become the
personal savior of tho labor movement
if it is ever to accomplish its legitimate
Wo talk also of the problem of the
churches nnd the masses. We forget that
the dlfTtoulty often Is that we have such
churches, with such social distinctions
and with such lack of method In work.
Wo forgot that wo have often such peo
plo in the pows, drones in the work of
tho Kingdom, who regard tho minister
much as they would a platform orator.
Intended to furnish pleasant Intellec
tual entertainment nnd opportunity for
tho exercises of criticism, not as a
prophet of God to utter tho commands of
righteousness which must be obeyed, not
aB a general to lead them forth to duty
In society. Wo forget that, in too many
cases, we have such ministers, men who
yield to the temptation to place pop
ularity above slmplo truth, who too of
ten prefer false success to persevering
struggle. No, modern civilization Is not
bad becauso it Is modern. But because
man Is such ns ho Is, therefore Is modern
civilization such as we find It to be.
Tho problem again Is simply, only this,
tho putting of tho personal living of
Jesus thto this civilization. How shall
this bo done? Preaching the gospel
what 1b It? It Is saying to this country,
to this generation, the Christ haB como
to you In tho Christian. Living tho gospel
what is it? 8lmply living forth in this
century, In this generation, tho Christ
What, then, wo inquire, aro some of tho
leading elements In this Christlike life
which the questions of our day demand?
I answer, first of all, Christlike living
nlwnys faces realities wherever found,
whether in the sunshlno or in tho shadow.
It looks on both sides of life, tho light
side nnd the dark side, with Impar
tial glance. Jesus entertained tho larg
est hope for man that has ever been
cherished becauso he saw reality. Ho
also said the darkest, saddest things re
garding man that have ever been ut
tered; this nlso was because ho saw
reality. In this Son of Man was the
life which llghteth every man that Com
eth into tho world nnd nlso the life
which Judgcth every man that llvcth in
the world. Thero Is a truth In looking
on tho bright side nnd thero is also a
truth in looking on the dark side. Tho
whole truth Is found In tho oven balanc
ing of these two, as only tho Christ,
and the Chrlstllko, can. We Americans
have been optimists, and for this very
reason we nro In danger of becoming
Indeed already wo are becoming pes
simists. The existing state of affairs has
been truly stated in this wise remark:
"Public opinion has been fatally san
guine, prone to the belief thnt whatever
we do whatever fatal blunders we com
mit 'we shall como out all right in tho
end.' It is supposed that God is per
sonally responsible for the United States,
that ho can not afford to let our ex
periment of self-government fall." Tho
Hebrew commonwealth. Its disastrous
nnd total overthrow tho lesson of tho
Old Testament, of tho larger part of
the Bible, sufficiently nnswers this fal
lacy. Faith In God can not bo identi
cal with faith in my blunder, my sel
fishness, my sloth, my sin. American
sloth In thought, the acceptance of a
view becauso It Is pleasant, tho sotting
up of an authority because It Is hard to
think for oneself the sad results of these
things we are constantly discovering In
our llfo as a nation. Tho outcome Is tho
blind following of this and that leader,
the credulous reception of this and that
dictum of a school. "In tho truo state,"
well has it been said, "the scholar is
man thinking, In the degenerato state,
he Is the parrot of other men's think
ing." Even the utternnco of the best
opinion Is dangerous to the mere imitator.
Your absolutely sure man becomes of
ten your most dangerous man, for he
knows nothing through experience. Tho
reaction Is sure to como In indifference,
in tho abandonment of self and of pub
lic Interests to chance. Why have we
so many Indifferent men about us? Why
Is their number so decidedly on tho In
crease? Because so many have had their
thinking done for them. Tho pupil of
positive assertion makes, before long, tho
worst nnd the saddest indlfferentist.
That thought which Is tho soul of Chrlst
llko living alone corrects tho matter.
Christ stood In a world of dogmatists on
the ono hand and of Indlftorentlsts and
discouraged men on tho other, and In
dependently thinking ho calmly said:
"There Is truth. It Is accessible to ev
ery man for himself. The pathway to
its finding Is that of open-eyed. Inde
pendent search. But this must be a
search in the spirit of humility, patience,
self-control, self-denial." Mote this; for
get it not. Such a spirit is nil Import
ant. Thero can bu no Chrlstllko living
without It. It involves intelligent faith
In God. Such faith Is confidence In
righteousness. The message of the Old
Testament and of the New, of the
prophet and of the Christ Is one. It
is the proclamation of the unalterable
law of man's life righteousness. It alone
exalteth man or nation. Without It,
there is no peace. Without It, one dare
not proclaim peace. But at tho same
time ho whose eyes have been opened to
seo righteousness, he whoso heart has
known Its power, can not stay long under
tho Juniper tree. Never, in his inmost
soul, can he want to die, for righteous
ness and God ever live. Discouragements
must come. He who works for man al
ways has met them; he always must meet
them. He who can not stand frosts had
better give up work for humanity at
once. Ho who can not enduro criticism
must live under glass. Expect to give
sympathy to all, expect to take sym
pathy from God alone; for this Is tho
greatness of tho Chrlstllke 6oul. Thero
Is but one course to the honest man
It Is tho path to llfo both for himself
and for others also let him say his
word, do his deed, bide his time, let him
constantly do this; then shall the huge
world come round to mm, It he stand
with truth. Yes, only thus if he stand
THE TRUE REFORMER.
Tho day of tho great Individual reform
er and leader is largely past. The true
reformer of the present must havo that
Christlike living which silently repro
duces Itself. Ho must work, like the
coral Insect below tho surface Of his
life he builds tho reef to keep out the
salt, death-bringing sea. We, today, need
not a. reformer, but a race of reformers.
The points of application tor personal
force aro innumerable. For tho sake ot
the nation's safety, it must be applied
at every point. Jesus dovoted himself
to twelve men. One of them sold him
to his foes, but through the eleven who
wero truo to him he moved the world.
He had no platform at Jerusalem, at
Hlborlas, at Caesarca; but he put his llfo
Into society and he has ever stneo been
For this Chrlstllko personal living, of
which I have been bpeaklng, conquers
by tho might of lovo. Civilization our
American civilization is In peril. What
shall wo do? Hide our heads, ostrich
like. In tho sand? Run away from the
world to our Westmoreland valley? Let
our neighbor try to do something? I tell
you, nay I Property is In danger. What
shall we do? Put a gatllng gun In the
street? No, none of theso things. Simply
learn to live In love. Put things at their
worst, and say: America may fall what
then? It will be because she ought to
fall. American Christianity may fall
what then? It will only be becauso tho
Christianity of Christ has not been tried,
Remember this. Whatever comes or
goes, man remains and Ood remains and
love remains. "Lovo never fallcth, there
fore, follow love." If a man will do the
supremo deed, he must have the supreme
motive. Self-defence Is a good motive.
I.nvn of countrv Is better. Love of man
1 U bt, why? Because It Is God'a
motive. This love Is the power of tho
Chrlstllko life. It Is lovo of- man, riot
becauso of his inherent goodness, but
because of his Inherent possibility. Love
Is too far-sighted to confuse theso
things. Love knows how to adjust Inter
ests and yet not crush ambitions, Lovo
knows how to teach self-reliance and
patience without taking nway spirit and
hope. Lovo sees that the Interests of
humanity, individual and social, In all
their length and breadth, their hcUrht
and depth, nro wrapped up In tho llfo and
mission of Jesus. Chrlstllko personal liv
ing Is such as this.
Stand with Jesus and you can not fall
to know how to Interpret this time.
