Taken from the Milan Herald:
Where there is any force or pow
er there must be rule or there will
be destruction from the power. The
power that sets in motion the loco
motive must be governed by law, or
it will destroy the driver and that
which was intended to give motion.
Man is bound by law. There h
no place and there are no cirenm
stances in this world in which we
are not bound by physical law.
Every man finds that if he would
have health he must inhale pure air.
No man can afford to despise this
law but whether he do so or not, it
will hold him in bonds. Health is
the result of obedience to this law;
to disobey may be death. Laws of
earthly life may or may not be uni
versal laws, but the moral law of
God is in force throughout the uni
verse and there is no escape from it
What is good here is good every
where, what is morally right now
can never be wrong. Whether men
obey it or defy it, they will be for
ever bound by it.
The observance or rejection of
this law constitute life's experiences,
To willingly or ignorantly violate
the laws of nature is anarchy; the
laws of God, a sin. Man is either
triumphing over sin or sin is tri
umphing over him. The experience
of everyone is that two forces
are doing all they can to control
ram touna tn nimseit two men
one low and the other noble; and he
mourns that the low man so often
gains the mastery over the noble
man. Of the conflicts that Paul
passed through, thousands of this
day and generation have had like
experiences. They know that there
is one spirit in them that serves the
law of sin, that it is earthly and does
not strive upward toward the true
and good, that it does not love the
law ot God. With this exoerience
there is the opposite; a delight in
the law of God and a consent that
is good. How opposite thete char
acters! How striking the contrast
of the two men that dwell together
in the one man!
There are many who profess Chris
tianity the unregeperate who, if
all the secret workings and down
falls of their lower nature were pro
claimed on the housetops, what
would be said of their religion?
The lower man compels the spirit
ual man to do all the things he hates.
How wondrous strange that the low
er man should so often triumph!
And jet this takes place in every
sphere of life. The wicked man
spreads himself like a green bay
tree; boasts of his wickedness; tries
to ride rough shod over truth and
goodness. But oh! the bitter aloes
in his life's experiences. He is
heard to cry out, "O wretched man
that I am."
And with this experience cf
wretchedness comes the inquiry,
"Who shall deliver me?"
Ethical systems rannot successful
ly help in this conflict. Philosophy
cannot avail; rhetorical phrases can
not enable us to gain moral victory.
Music cannot enable the man to per
form tha: which is good. Reason
may affirm that to follow the good is
good in itself, that virtue is its own
reward, but reason is soon dethroned
by the power of carnal man and
vice the embodiment of the lowr
man, overrides virtue. "Who shall
deliver me?" Here is the crisis in
life's experience, the willingness to
let another undertake that in which
you have utterly failed, conquer the
old man of sin.

The Operators' Strike Eided. I
The strike of the Santa Fe leleera-
pbers bas been called off. A formal
order to this effect was Issued yester
day applying to the entire system.
President Dolphin bas advised all
strikers to apply for reinstatement.
Ine calling off of tbe strike re
leases the operators from remaining
jut and allows tbem to look for posi
tions either with the Santa Fe or
other roads. Whether they will be
able to go bick to work for the Santa
reisaqueston with the men, which
they can not answer. The officials of
the road have issued an order to the
effect that no strikers will be taken
bick. Whether tbe road will rescind
ibis order can not be surmised.

"After the order is n habilitated,

"to aetermine now it shall be treated.
Until this time, any grievances wbicb
may arise among the operators em

The strikers have the appearance of
having given up the gbost, and are
convinced that the strike has been a
failure and that tbey have lost.
The committee on mediation winch
was composed of representatives of
the various trainman's organizations
on the Santa Fe, and which went tn
Chicago to treat with the officials of
the road In the Interest .f the strik
ing operators, returned U Topeka
yesterday. The members of the com
mittee had very little to say about
the meeting with the Stnta Fe nffl
cials, other than that they were well
received. One nf the committeemen,
however, said that other organizations
would not take any further part in
the matter of assisting the operators
to win thPir strike.
Third Vie President Barr of the
Santa Fe system said, upon being In
formed that the telegraphers' strike
had been declared off:
"As f ir as we are cocrned It has
been off a long time. We have all the
men we need at present., and we will
discharge none of them to make room
for anv striker who wishes to come
bick. Thse mm broke their con
tract, with us in a manner ertirely
unjustifiable and we are done forever
with t' telegraphers as an organlza
tion. The 6trike naturally caused us
annoyance at firet, hut this lasted onlv
for a few days, and then we were in
first-class shape again."
A Dinner to tbe Ministers.
SomttuiLg unique in the way of
ministerial entertainment was given
by Rev. Th'is. A. West, pastor ot the
;niitlaii church of Wellington last
wek. It was a dinner to the miL
ittis of Wellington and their fain
iues. Sevenueu i,ersons were In
vited, and as indicating the existing
harmony among tue beads of the
Wellington churches, it is worth
nouug that sevf-ntetn were present.
Tbe dinner, wl icu lasted from 6 to
10, was be d in the parlors of the
Presbyterian cburcb. Mrs. J. G.
Cunningham directed the preparation
of the dinner, whic'i CooMted of
oysters, salads, etc., and wound up
with ice crtam. The dinner was
erved in courses, with a toast be
:ween each coinse. Rev. West Is a
b chplor, and most of the ministers'
t iast were good natured roasts. Rev.
Penick's to-tst was "The F'y Leaf,"
and Contained many interesting
sketches from his experiences since
r-ti'ing from active ministerial life.
Dr. J C. Hall's v.at was "West-em
Hospitality. and was a scholarly
talk upon tbe growth, social develop
ment and hospitality oi the west,
with many clever take-offs on tbe
host's naraj. Revs. StuH, Stiuffcr
and McClaln had evidently been
previously ta'king about Rev. West'i
celibate condition -nd dtcided to talk
upon subjects which they thought
would be nearer to his heart. Rev
Siuil's toast was "The Discovery."
His talk contained no reference to the
tiiscoycry of a presc'ier by a church
without a pastor, but dwelt pai
ticularly upon the hetrt sensations a
man experiecc s when he discovers
the affinitv in some girl lie is gointr
with; how it ripens into a warm,
everlasting love, and how it
ends with the sweet Joys of
married life. He had Rev. West look
ing mlehty thoughtful, and the ob
serving wives of the ministTS said
they thought. Rev. McClain's toast on
"Tbe Two Otntrasted" would hav
finished him but 'or tbe iconoclastic
remarks of Rev. Cunningham, who
mercilesly shattered the Idols set up
bvRev . Staufferand Rev. McClain In
toat on "Unmarried RMs, from a
Married Man's View Point." Rev.
McClain vividly contrasted the con
ditlons of a married man and a single
man. and, following as it dd Rev.
Staoffer's talk, fresh frm bis own
wooing experiences, made married
life look like the whole thing. But
Rev. Cunningham told of the sleep
less oights a man passes with a colicky
babv (be baa a new baby and bis ex
periences were fresh also)and It was too
much for Rev. Wet. Rev. Cunning
ham would picture the married mn
walking the floor in the dead of nlabt
with a crying baby, and then say with
a good deal of effect, "And the bach
elor sleeps on!" He undoubtedly
knocked some girl out of a geod bus
band that night.
