(Continued from page 3.) murder. But what sort of an in- fluence must a cheerless, com fortless, ramshacked home like this provided no doubt with sec ond hand furniture and other cheap things not good enough for the parishioners but good enough for the parsonages and the preacher have upon the im pressible minds of the ministers children, but - especially if they arenearing young womanhood or young manhood. How it must humiliate their self respect and, produce in them an aversion toward the ministry and the church. If as one has put it, the impressions made upon childhood in the home, and by its environments are like letters cut in the bark sf a young tree, which grows and widens with age," what must be social hurt, and moral wrong done to fami lies of ministers who are forced to occupy these inconvenient, cheerless parsonage homes, if ws may call them homes. The-fact is, congregations who provide such ransacked parson ages for their ministers as that described Nhut themselves social t ly and morally, as well as their minister and his family, for how ever 'worthy their pastor- they will feel towards him just like the parsonage looks, and they will grade him socially, though it may be unconsciously, with the second-handed furniture . that they themselves provided for his home. Worse still, the pastor and his family cannot escape a lowering of their own self-re- spect, social standing. and in- fluence in the community, when they submit to these outrageous impositions. The Methodist nreachers are the only -class of men in the world who can make a wash-stand out of the flour bar rel, and never lose their social standing. Buttwhy-should- min isters and-'their -families- be thus Notice discriminated against in matters of the home have things put off on them, not good enough for their parishioners, but good enough for the preacher and his family people to, who are bene ficiaries of his services and but for which service their very lives and property would be in peril every hour. But God in His Wisdom foresaw all these things, and therefore m his finan cial syrtem for the support of His ancient preachers, made such ample provisions that they could establish, furnish, and maintain respectable homes, homes too, that would be a sermon, and ex ample in the community as every preacher's home should be. Every faithful preacher is entitled to a home for service rendered, God being the judge. The homing in stinct demands it, and mark it, all instincts created by God are holy, but especially this primeval and constitutional instinct of the home, and for which God made provisions in the established homes of his ancient ministry. And yet' in the very face of these divinely established homes, and the ample provisions made by God himself for the comfort and support of these old Testament ministers, there are jnembers of the church who think that a preacher of the gospel should not own property nor even an humble home -to which he may go for shelter when old and worn out in a service for the community in which they live, and of which service they and jtheir families l are daily oenencianes. we have actually known faithtul self-denying ministers of the gospel, who as a matter of pru dence, and justice to themselves 1 -v and their dependent families,! were compelled to keep from their people any knowledge of any real estate, or money, they might posses above immediate want, lest quarterage, that pit tance of God's , tithe would be withheld on the pretense that the preacher does not need it, as though unlike men of other callings', he had no right to comr pensation for service rendered, : ' ' nor even to make any prudent provision against the wants and infirmities of old aee. no not even by putting aside for them the sacred bequeathment of a dying parent. The labor of the ministry is the only service gen dered to society that 13 discrim inated against. No one ever thinks of withholding the salary of the teacher, the fees of the lawyer or the wages of the work man, because they happen to own a home of their own or have a bank account, and therefore do not need it. The average salary of a minister of the gospel in the United States is about 665 per annum, and many of them don't receive more than $150. The minister of the gospel is expect ed to itinerate from Dan even to Beersheba, pay all hjs traveling expenses, buy food and clothing for his family, buy books, ed ucate his family. But this upon the very face of it is an economic impossibility and we have as a result a crip pled ministry, and the perilous omen of pastorless and dying churches all over our nation, and that too at a time when .Roman ism is making her last grand stand for America. By our disregard of God's financial system, as one has well said: "We have written over the open and inviting door of the most attractive calling in the world the ministry of Jesus Christ, this warning sign all who enter here must become practical beggars for all the money necessary to carry on and advocate the cause nearest the heart of Christ and their own hearts, and also very often beg the money necessary for their own, and their family's support. No wonder then that the young men coming out of our colleges, seeing these things, are com pelled by their very self respect, to turn away from the sacred calling of the ministry to engage m secular employments. And thus it has happened as in the days of Nehemiah. The Levite has fled every one to his field, and hence the house of God, through all the rural sections of this nation, like the temple of Jerusalem in the days of the prophet, is left in solitude, and is desolate. "The Levite has fled every one 'to his field." In many instances faithful minis ters who have too much self re spect to beg for the church and for themselves and families, and to live in parsonages equipped with second-hand goods, have quit preaching and gone into re- Ispectable secular employments V where they can maintain their social dignity, and do simple jus tice to their families. No won der then that there is a great, scarcity of ministers in all de- : nominations, but especially of - those pf the right sort." A Lover of God and Men.
