The Flip-Floppers The latest Montana newspaper, hitherto under republican colors, to see and realize the error of its ways is the Havre Plaindealer at Havre, Montana. The Plaindealer has been one of the rankest, par tizan republican sheets published in this state ever since its start. Now it has joined the ranks 6f the democrats. Notwithstanding the fact that for eleven long years it has accepted republican pap and warned its readers of what hard times we would have if the demo crats should ever get hold of the t reins of government, it has all of a t sudden become an advocate of a Bryanism, opposes plutocracy, c hates the trusts, wants cheap .ug- 1 ar, is death on high wool and in tends to be a friend of the "Great I American Pee- pul." 1 There are other papers in the a state all jumping the same way. V It's fine dope. The democrats welcome converts to their tanks. The old line.democrats and Oews papers of that faith have been working for sixteen years with that end in view and it is certainly encouraging to note that at last we are winning converts to our cause in such numbers. Of course it might be pdssible that a little pie ,r Federal patronage in sight may lave something to do with these sudden conversions, in that the change of heart comes so soon after a democratic victory, how ever, we will be charitable and im agiue that it is an intense love for the welfare of the country, a hatred of things base, and devotion to what is right that has been the only influence brought to bear on them in effecting these changes. Of course these sudden gyrations sprung upon the old time repub licans do not cause them to take kindly to this changing of editorial hearts; it is a terrible blow to the office holders and the machine, but they must remember in politics, some newspapers are like the Duchman's flea, "you think you have got him and you havn't got him." We wish to extend our sympathy to the G. O. P. in these counties over the state; yes, doggon it, we will extend some for the G. O. P. of Lincoln county, come to think of it, they have lost their official organ also. Let us now shed a few tears. "The Father Of Mercies" The above was the theme of the sermon at the Presbyterian Church lhst Sunday morning The follow ing paragraphs are from the con clusion of the sermon "God is the Father of mercies r because, in his infinite mercy, He gave His only begotten Son to re. deem lost men from lives of sin and the eternal woe which sin produces, and bring them 'into that relation to Him wherein they become the heirs to eternal life and glory. And men and women, who have accepted His salvation, inspired by His example and constrained by the love of Christ shed abroad in their hearts, .have gone forth, and are going forth, to supplement and continue His works of love, to manifest His mercy. "But some will say that deeds of mercy, and reformations which re lieve the oppressed are advocated and supported by men and women who do not accept or believe in the love of God in Jesus Christ. What about the Brahmo-Somaj and kin dred reformation movements in In dia? What about the hundreds of kind hearted men and women in America and Europe who are in the van of reformers, after having cast off the faith of their fathers? Is God the Father of the mercies that they dispense? Yes; or main I: so. "God is the Father of mercies as the sun is the father of light. The light of the dawn which precedes the sunrise is sunlight. And the light that lingers on the earth af ter the sun goes down is still the sunlight. "Brahmins in contact with chris tians can see the material good and are induced to imitate the course of action which produces it, even before the bright Source of the christian's inspiration has come to pour His influence directly upon them. Hence the Brahmo-Somaj. ' fis the light before sunrise. While the sons and neighbors of the christian man love to imitate such part of his life as they can appreciate, and the habit is form ed of doing deeds of mercy, a habit that lives after the death of the c.hristian. 'Tis the light after sunset. "But when the sun sets, dark ness begins to come upon the earth. The twilight may be pleasant, and the brightly colored clouds that deck the skies may appear most beautiful; yet it is the twilight and darkness hastens. Just so with the light of human kindness which we call mercy. When the mercy of God no more appears, the light of human kindness shows up most beautiful. But it is the twilight, and the darkness lowers. We must keep the Father of mercies in view if we would preserve the works of mercy upon the earth. Thank God, the Sun of rigteousness need never set!"
