'/'t iii/HTtiiicf Jlh 'ssiiii/. THE NObTe'pRIINCIPLE. What is ii? It is the practice denial f<?r the good <il' other.*:- Tlii:? 1 ><*;i 1 1 1 i I'u t principle stands at the oiipn- j site ji:ile ni" sel lishm-.--:'. it is the lieav- i en horn sentiment th:it delights in self saeriiiec for the good <>1' others. It is heroism iliitt always commands tiie sul miration of tho world. Who is so much honored in the old classics ::s Lcotiidas and his Spartan band who so nohlv im molated themselves on the altar of pa triotism at. the Pass of Therntopolec ? The old Revolutionary soldiers limping J ertitche--. ? carrying a:i empty j sleeve at t' <? ,? side, were esteemed j great heme . Why? lieeunse they suffered for others. They counted not ' their lives dear that they might win civil liberty for the nation. This was asttb j lime sacrifice. See this self-sacrifice on ? the ] vi i?!' !:.?>tlier< who labor, Miller, i endure li-ird<hi|is,*luar pain through many long weary years, all for the good of their ehihlren. St. I'm til was inspir jedwith this sublime self-denial for the other-, lie said, "It i- good |(a delight* not to drink v.ine whereby my hrother sliimhlctli.'* Paul knew | that hi.- drinking, even v?. i::?dv.;iie I ly. would encourage others to drink immoderately : therefore lie resolved not to touch it -not to handh' i ? or jta-teit. The noble principle here iu jelitdedis this: 'i'hat a prtteiicc i-iia; might he innocent t > ourselves should l>e abstained from, if that prietiec en Courages others to commence a course that may finally ruin litem. Is not this [principal applicable to wine-drinking 1 'h* istians '! Tho?* who would succss t*ii ; ??<.* lead others from the horrible pit of intemperance, must stand i* n;i tin-line of to :il abstinence. Dr. t'uy lev say: "An intelligent limn now lighting the it p j 1 1 ?* lor strong drink to ti> mit I'm# since- : "I niicc went to hear I )r. ? preach. and I admir ed his i i ii < ; but when I heard that In- u?c?l wine in the social intercourse* with his church. 1 loir his congregation at oiicc. ! could not goto hear thegospel ??1" self-denial from a man who 'liil n*>i practice it himself. 1 wanted a pastor win-- would help me up. and not one wIiom; example pulled me down." llow many calling thciuscl ves ( 'hrislians who are unwilling to deny themselves the paltry gratification of a glass of wine or ah* in order '.o form a temperature public sen ti men t, ami lielp save the weak hrother who stumbles! Their inllr.onee is cast on the side of the in temperate habits of the people. Dr. (Jit! line hi boring for the lower classes in Kdinhurgh said, '"I soon found tiia! 1 ll^7>! give ll 1 1 tl e l.::j.e .it' hoi::;.; minister of Christ to these degraded souls, miles 1 took with me the princi ple of entire abstinence." WHAT THE CAUSE NEEDS. Tin* enthusiastic it*] zealous advo cate of sisiy reform always receives tin* strong disapproval of the (so ?*;< 1 1 1*? I > respectable friends of any particular reform. Those who believe in tin- fun damental principles would lie incalcu lable benefit io mankind, who express tin- desire to see tin? people of this whim try recoirni/.e their truth and en joy their full benefit, are seldom willing to assist in hriti'riii^ the reform before the pithlie.
