"'God gave him another heart."?I Sam?
uel, x., 9.
Tho thraads of daliy life often appear
to bo elther loose or hopclessly entangled.
At times wo seem to have nothing to do
with each other. We go on our separate
ways. It is only now and then' that we
Hnd our lines touch, nnd see Uiat under
tho apparent simpllclty of daily affairs,
thore are wrought out strange destinies.
A man climbs a hill; that in solitude he
may revel in the landscape, and lo! a
little child meets hlm and it forms a turn?
lng point in his career. A traveler turas
aside that he may drink of tlie well by the
way, and behold, one is there before him,
who in a moment more will be gone, and
he becomes the joy of his life, the ruler of
bis future. So it ever is. We know not
what we do. We go and know not how
we shall return. We He down, not know
ing what the morning shall, bring us. Wo
speak, and our word lifts some listening
soul almost to Heaven. Thus our life is a
mystery; we are strangers; yot friends,
closely found together.
Tho circunistances in connection with
the text leads us into this strain of re
fleetion. The Lord had determined to
grant the request of Israel for a king.
instructions to that end were given Sam?
"And the asses of Kish, Saul'a father,
This is cne of what might bo called the
vcxatious and stupid affairs of daily life.
It seems a most paltry statement to be
found in a book which is a revelation
from Heaven. The asses were lost; what
then? Who cares? Yet, out of this sim
ple event God was preparing a way for
Israel. The asses being lott, Kish com
m&nded his son Saul to take with him a
servant and go in pursuit. Saul instantly
responded, and this fis the more remark?
able, seemg that he is described as "a
choice youngman and a goodly; and there
was not among the children of Israel a
goodlier peison than he; from his shoul
der3 and upward he was higher than any
of the pc-cple." Shall he be sent on this
menial errand? Might he not >-egard tho
request of his father as imposing on him
_ humiliating duty? Contrast lhe majesty
of his person with tlie eontemptibleness
of his orrtiid, and say if there is not a
I'et Saul, so impt-rlal in bearing, so
choice and goodly in all ohysical man
htod. appears to have obeyed instantly
th behest of his faiher. The ftllal spirit
never sees anything contempiible in the
paternul desire.* Men should rule tlieir
lives not by the insigniftcaiice of the ser?
vice, but by the subbmity of the one Kuler
who commands. Saul might liave regard
ed the asses only; instead of that, he look?
ed at his father, and in that look we flnd
th- eecret of his obedience and his alac
For three days were the asses sought.
There are men to-day who are repeating
his experience with painful faithfulness.
Go where ihey will, ihey flnd noi the ob?
ject of their search. They ciimb, they
speed along. they rise with the sun; yet
lhe desiro- of Uieir eyes is wlthheld from
them. Look at Saul, wearily wandering
from place to place, inquiring, looking
hoplng, yet flnding all his efforts ending
in disappointme.nl. The royd to honor is
often long and hard. Men have to endure
tho disc'pline of disappointment before
they can bear the reward of success.
When Saul had found his wij to Sam?
uel, Samuel said to him: "As for those
asses that were lost three days ago, stft
not thy mind on them, for they are
found." A wonderful kingdom is the
Kingdom of God! Dotb nnything escape
the caro of God? Doth not God care for
oxen? Doth a sparrow fall to the ground
without our Pather's notice? If we give
the great concerns of our life mto tiie
hands of God, nothing that belongs to us
shall bo uhworthy of His notice, for tho
"very hairs of your head are all nuinber
Mark tho consideratlon and the fore
thought of the great prophet. Though
Samuel had before him the future King
of Israel, and he himself was about to be
deposed from his supremacy; yet he com
municatcd to Saul Irst the intelligence of
the lost- asses. Though about to dazzle the
eyes of Saul with a strange new bril
liance, yet he paid attention to the family
concerns in which Saul was interested.
The lesson is great to those who have
hearts to understand!
Having had this momentous interview
with Samuel, in which the whole course
of his life was changed, Saul started on
his homeward way. and he read "that
when he turned his back to go from Sam?
uel, God gave him another heart."
Observe, not increased intelligence, not
additional personal stature, nor any sign
that tha't he was elected to be King of
Israel; God gave him. another heart"
This Is the question of life. There are.
many who know theologically tho way of
salvation; there are many who know the
dllference between falsehood and truth;
but knowing they do not; what thoy want
is another heart.
"O! for a heart to praise my God,
A heart from sin set free!
A heart that's sprinkled with the blood
So freeiy shed for me:
A hfart in every thought renewed,
And full of love divine;
Perfect and right and pure and good,
A copy, Lord. of Thine!"

Ugemeht of foreign labor tc the prejudice
of our own. But is not every such article
lhe product of our own labor as truly
as if we had maiiufactujx-d it ourselves?
Our labor has eai tied it and paid tne
price for it. It is so much added to the
stock of national wealth. lf the com
modity were dollars nobody wuuld doubt
tht truth of Lhis remark, and it is pre
cisely as correct in its applicatiuti to any
other commodity as to silver. One man
makes a yard of cloth at homo, anotner
raisos agricultural products and buys a
yara of imported cloth. Both these are
equally the earnings of domestic indus

in the case are two. The lirst is. whicjh
is the best mode under ali the circum

ond is, how- far this question is proper
to be decided by Government, and how
far it is proper to be left to individual
discretion. There is no foundation for
the distinction which attributes to cer?
tain employments the pecuhar appella

my judgment, extremeiy unwise to at?
tempt such discriminations."

The Suffrage Problem Again.
Editor of The Times:
Sir,?Permit me to thank you for what
you have said in commendatlon of my
article on the suffrage problem. and to
reply briefly to your criticisms.
lt is a "cruel doctrine," you say, that It
is unwise for the whites to turnish the
blacks with the gratuitous education that
will unflt some of them for manual labor
and fit others for competition with the
whites in hlgher work; and I fear that
many persons who read' your editorial
without 'having read my article may con?
sider me a cruel and brutal man," with?
out sympathy for the negroes in their
unhaDDy position. As a matter of fact.
however, I distinctly stated that every
j humane man must feel profound pity for
them, and one of my reasons for writing
the artiofe at all was the ardent desire
tc save them from an even worse fate
than has already befallen them. It is the
"Anglo-Saxon" race. and not my doc?
trine, that is "cruel." It was Anglo-Sax
ons that "pitilessly massacred the Danes"
on St. Briee's-d'ay; that butchered Irish
men at Drogheda anct Wexford; that
treacherousiy slaughtered Scotch High
landers at Glencoe; that tied Hindoos to
the muzzles of cannon and blew them
into fragments; that have ruthlessly
driven the Amerfcan Indians from pillar
to post at the point of the bayonet; that
have fusiladed the Filipinos with Krag
Jorgensen bullets for decliningr "benevo
lent assimilation" at their hands. Cer?
talnly theso are cruel deeds. But there
is no cruelty in mentionin_ them?no
cruelty in pointing to them as examples
of what may be expected by any race
that stands athwart the Anglo-Saxon's
path. It is not my fault that iri 3711
nineteen negroes were hanged in New
York city, and that in 1741 eighteen were
hanged and thirteen burnt at the staKe
on flimsy evidence of alleged plots against
the whites. Nor is it my fault that some
months ago every negro who showed his
face upon the streets of that same city
was brutally beaten by white ruffians.
Is it cruel to mention these things, and
to draw thi plain conclusion that the
greater the political, social or industrial
competitlon between whites ond blacks
tha greater will be the danger of such
conflicts? Surely the surgeon who reluc
tantly informs his patient that his life
can be saved only by the amputation of
a limb is not a cruel man. It is the bac
teria. of disease that are cruel; and the
smgeon would be equally so if he remaiu
ed silent and permitted gangrene to set
in and slay the patient. lt is pitiful for a
man to lose a limb, and pitiful for a race
to give up the hope of industrial, social
and political equality with oth. r races.
But if this hope is vain. is It right to
conceal the fact? Is it right to dupe this
un fortunate raco Into striving for unat
tainable ends and risking a deadly con?
lllct with a merciless foe?
.1 agree most heartily with The Times
that we should treat the negro with kind
ness. But what is kindness? I should not
consider it kind in any man to flatter me
with the delusive idea that I could write
a play like Harnlet, or make as much
money as Carnegie, or become a member
of the British House of Lords, or surpass
Newton as a mathematician, or be elect?
ed President of the L'nited States. Nor
do I consider it true kindness to the ne?
groes to lure them into dreaming dreams
that can never be fulfilled. Little Swlt
zerland and little Belgium cannot hope
to play the part of "world powers"; and
it. is probably a caiamity for Italy that
she has made desperate but futile efforts
to play such a part. But if the Swiss can
be content to give up all hope of compet
ing with France or Russia in the game
of international politics, is it impossible
for the negro to be fairly satisfied with a
subordinate position in southern* society?
I do not believe so. I would own no slaves |
myself; but I firmly believe that the col- j
ored people were happier as slaves than
they will ever be again; and I believe
that they are happier now than they will
be if they continue to vote and to receive
free education from the whites.
"Voting," you say, "is a privilege con?
ferred, and not an inherent right." Very
true. But is not the same' true of at- '
tending a free school? If every man can
demand free education as a right, why
is it that even white Virginians never
treceived such education till thirty years
ago? And if the negroes have an inherent
right to free instruction, why not also
to free food? Is food less important than
