For tho Vermont Watclmtan.

Klnd Savlor, thou art near,
Aml aeeat the contrile teara that flowi

And with thy Splrlt ald.

To aerve and love tbou wllt constraln
Tbe lowly and tlie weak,
Ovcr-Wnlcbfiilncss of Solf.
In pointing out somo of tho waya in
which tho tendenoy to tbitik too muoh of
one'a self develops itself, I wlll montiou
first selt consciousness, or sonsitiveuoss to
solf. This inay arise from the lovo of ap
probatlon. A yearning for tho favor of
men toward us may be bo Btrong that
every human being we meet shall throw
back upon us somo thought of how wo
oursolves stand with them. There is a
tendency to keep one'a self bofore one's
own tniud. Every man, under such eir
cumstances, brings to us somo thought
about oursolves. Or, it may bo 11 super
senBltiveness to his rights and duties that
shall cause one to Gx his thought chiefly
on himself. There aro persons that uro
nover out of their own sight ; and although
it may be their moral feolings that min
ister tho thought of thotnsolves to them
selves, nevertheless it is self that is tho
thomo of their thought. A gencrous and
true uian lets himself go away out of his
own sight, as wise parents let their oliil
dren go away out of their sight. A child
that is brought up at home, and is never
allowed to go out of the sight of father
and mother, must bo an extremely poor
ohild, if it is not spoiled by the time it is
broaght np. Tho oorreot idea of family
government is not that the paronts should
do all tho governing, but that they should
teach the child to do his own governing,
and let him go by himself, and do sorne
thing oi his own acoord, aud work out re
sults in his own way, and havo a sense of
reeponsibility. The earlier a child can
be inspired iu this way the safer it is for
him. It is sald that good people's chil
dren turn out badly. They do not. Good
people's chlldren, counted one by one, turn
out better than other people's cbildren.
Now and then there is an instance, it is
true, when good people's children turn
out badly; but this is not the general
rule. It is said that ministers and dea
cons' children are more apt to turn out
badly than worldly people's. I do not bo
lieve it. It would be strange, consider
ing how many thoy usnally have, if somo
of them did not turn out badly ; but if
you compare them with equal numbers of
the children of people that make no pro
fession of religion, you will find the facts
to be exactly tho other way. And the in
stances in wbich the children of Chris
tians turn out badly I think you can gen
eral ly trace to their over-anxiety to have
them good. They mean to aee to it that
they aro good. They do not let them try
the experiment of moral conduct, and
reap the rewards and penalties of it, in
order that, gathering wisdom, they may
know, when they go out from under the
parental roof, how to take care of them
selves. If the housewife is so consider
ate of her daughter as to make the beds
and the bread for her, and do the sewing
for her, and put all ber things up for her,
when she is grown she will not know how
to do anything for herself. It is possible
for a man to mistreat himself so. It is
possible for him to keep himself under
his own eye, and all the time watch what
he is doiug and thinking and feeling, so
that his disposition and nature ncver can
get a chance to work without restraint.
There are a great many conscientious,
cautious people who keep their own life
so under their own inspection that it never
gets out where it can bo free, and develop
a true, manly breadth and strength. A
true man lives the greater number of
honra with scarcely a thought that he
does live. Everybody comes home to
himself occasionally ; but a man that is a
man may be in life exerting great power,
studying, thinking, laboring for others,
working for causes outaide of himself,
and for honra and days scarcely think of
himself egotistically. He may be hungry or
thirsty, warmorcold, and he may thiuk of
it ; but the thought, "Here am I ; here is my
nnderstanding ; this is my genius ; this is
my power and it.fluence," never enters his
mind from morning till night, nor from
week's end to week's end. If a man is
busy as he oughl to be ; if he is using
himself rightly, pouring out his life in
somo path of usefulness, what occasion
has he to go back and think about him
self ? But many persons do not permit
this ontgoing. They seern to think it is
a part of their duty of watchfulness to
keep themselves eo near that they never
areontof thereach of self-consciousness.
All this may be amiably done ; it may bo
done by a comparison of ourselves with
others ; it may be dono regretfully or com
placently ; but whatever may be the iu
fleotion, it is inordinateself-consciousness.
This tendency may be increased in per
sons who are liable to excessive selfness
by tbe practice of self-examination. I
dietinguish between selfness and selfish
ness. A man is selfish when he consulls
his own welfare or pleasure at the expenee
or disregard of others ; but when a man
does not sacriflce anybody else's rights or
advantages, and merely occupies himself
much with his bwn self, he is given to
selfness. Now, the duty of self-examination
is an important one; but to be bene
ficial it must be an examination of gen
eral results rather than of casual and de
tailed processes. ' The hablt of perpotual
self-inspection leads, geuerally, to great
coufusion and perplexity, because it is
nnnatural. The mind was not made to
be watched whlle it is working. It would
be a great deal safer to take your watch
out, and open it,andcarry itopen through
Broadway, obaerving tho act of its koep
intr time instead of looking at the dial to
see what time it was, than it is to keep
the mind open, and watch the springs oi
thoacht and tbe motives of life on tho
supposition that you can get a clearer in
sight in that way than in any other. For
the mind acts best, as roots do, in the
dark. If vou insist on bringing tne roots
of a plant to the top of the ground, they
wither and die. If you would have them
thrivp, you must let them lie under ground,
and udge ot the plant Dy us iruu. oeu-ex.
amination is right ; but that self-examina.
tion which consists in watching the proo'
esses of life is false in pbilosophy and
mischiovous in result. There are few who
have tho ability to employ tho power of
introversion judioiously. Many atop the
Drocessea thev attemnt to look in unon.
When a feeling is excited, and you at
tempt to inspect it, you change it into a
thought. The feeling stops, and instead
of having an emotion, you have nothing
but an idea. Tho emotlve procoss end
in orunr tnat an intollcctual process raay
take its place. Men spoil feoling by ana
lyzing what tbey foel. Love, tremulous
and inltfal, neods to no nourishcd, not
watchod. And when you undortako to
analj zo it the play of it is stoppod. Tho
habit of golng back to ono's self is a
school in which men lonrn solf-consalous-ness
under the namo of duty. Thls evil
is cometiines iuorea?ed by a wrong uso of
fervld teaching. It is a hablt which men
fall into just as ronlly, if not just ns much,
through the process of self-condemnatlon.
They also fall into it, oftentimes, through
the door of self-plty. . W. Beecher in
Lhrulian Unwn.
Tho Vftluo of tho Soul.
Tho troublo is wo do not woicrh thls
mattor of the valuo of .tho soul in the right
scales. "Vro weigh in tho scales of Bolflsh
nesa instead of love. Wo permit the
indiilorence and scorn wo may chance to
foel for thoso low down to hecorae our
standards, rather than tho tender interest
we feel in thoso near and dear. Tho right
and wise way is to judgo all aftor tho es
timato wo put on the solect fow. Thote
are mothers with tho fond motlier's heart
beatlng in their bosoms. As often as thoy
go abroad into the streete, .and return.
they see little eagor eyea peering out of
nursery windows, and little soft haudn
beckoning welcome. They hear tiny foet
pattering toward them along hall and
walk ; and they feel, as often as thoy looh
down 011 thoso faces, uptnrned and beam
ing with radiance, the prossuro of lovinp
arms about their necks. Or, it may be, it
is not theso sweet gruelinga and caresses,
but the memory of them, and that these
children are not here any longer, but yon
der with him who said , " Suffer little
children to come unto me." But here or
there, is there any languago with which
to give fit expression to tho mother's sense
of preciousness of those who have found
life through her life V She takes them
into her bcst and moat sacred tboughts,
and in the golden ilush of her illuminated
rnoods she eays : " Theao children are
God's gif ts to me ; God's image is on
their brows; God's life is throbbing in
their pulses; God's Spirit broods over
them and tries to guido them ; God's
grace has bought them redemption, and
there is for them, in God's great future,
if they only will consent to wear it, a
crown of everlasting rejoicing." Words
cannot compass this mother's conception
of the worth of these children. For they
are her own blood of her blood, bone of
her bone, and heart of her heart. But
every child of every mother the wide
earth over, is of equal intrinsio value. No
partiality of kinship, no fondness of affec-
tion, no closeness ot associatton, can im
press upon us too deep and earnest a con
viction of the worth of a human soul.
All that the warmest love can feol is but
a feeble approximation to God's thought
of tho value of every memberof mankind.
Tho cbild who plays at this moment on
tho banks of the Ganges or the Lena, or
who ffoes in and out of rudest Moneolian
hnts, has in it all the possibilities of those
who run in and out with such sweet, win
ning grace in our own home circles. To
onr self-complacent pride this may not
seem so ; but unless we have everything
wrong wrong views oi our naturea,
wrong views of God and of the moanintr
of his instructions and promises, wrong
views of the signification of Calvary so
it surely is. For social purposes just now,
for civil purposes, for educational pur
poses, for the purposes of industry and
science and art and general order, men
low down, and barbaric, and savage, or
far away in habit and opinion and moral
life, are not to be comparod witb those
who aretberare, ripeproducta ot splendid
privileges, and of centuries upon centuries
of the advantages of light, and of a de
voted and magnificent anccatry. But es
timated by the intellectual and moral
laculties with which they are endowed ;
estimated by the possibilities which are
in them, there is no differenco. In thought,
place them side by side in the gate-
waya ot eternity the highest in all his
wealth of culture, but stripped of every
thing which mere eartbly distinctions
have it in their power to confer, with the
light of heaven playlng upon them, and
revealing and distinguishing between the
perishable and imperishable, and then
tell me, u there, betoro liod, there is
anything in the way of difference for a
bingle moment to be compared with the
august f acts in which there is no differ
ence. One is a little larger, it may be,
than the other, a little fiuer, better,
knows more; but in nature and possibil
ity they are Bubstantially alike. Not to
accept this is to degrade human nature
in the mass, and to strike from under our
feet tho foundations of human digmty.
Dr. F. A. Noble.
Absurdltics of Religlous Scoptlclsm.
What a monumental paradox religious
scepticism is I It is a belief as much as
that which it antagomzes. It is the belief
that tbe popular beliefs about God and
his revelation, which have existed longest
in the world and have been the center
around which the world's strongest and
beat cultivated intellects have revolved, is
not true ; or in other words, the minority
ln rebellion against the majority, or an in
tense individualism magnified into a uni
versal antagonism. Can there, in the
possibilities of thought, be a greater ab
surdity than the relation of scepticism to
superstition ? If history sbows anything,
it is the inseparableness of unbelief and
tho most groveling superstition. There
is no more patent f act on the pago of his
tory than that fear is the child of unbe
lief, and cowardice comes out of the samo
moral and intellectual vacuum. It is not
worthy of surpriso that atheism has no
heroes and martyrs in her chronicles,
Men who believo nothing areon a straight
lino to tho belief of the unreal. Cains
Cniiar, nicknamed Caligula (little shoes),
was an atheist, but ho was so terrified by
fear when it thunderod that he would
hide himself under his bed, Preibylerian.
Wk may alBO find in the fast-fading
flowers at least a hint and illustration of
the great central truth of the gospel,
salvation by a vicarious sacriflce. Sonie
beautiful llowor lays down its life that
each luscious fruit and valuable eeed may
live, and every berry is preoeded by "a
bloesom and every frult by a flower. So
all f ruita of holiness in human hoarts and
lives come from tho laying down of the
life of him who was the flower of human
ity, and who died, the just for the unjust
that he might bring us to God. Rev. B.
B. Loornis.
In the experiraental Christian's heart
there are compassiona deep euough to
drown tho world's ponitsntial griefs. On
his lips aro words that can melt the ada
mantine heart. In his persuasions and
arguraents aro arrows that can pierco tho
brazenahieldof infldelity and slay the on
mity and unbelief of tho heart that boats
behind it.

Tho Jlomo ts. The Saloon.
Tho horao ngainst the saloon that is
tho iasue, and wo are glart to seo it dis
tinotly mado at last. For many long
years thoro has boen confllct botwoou
theso two foroos. Thoy aro radically in
compatiblo, and neither law, nor polftlcs,
no tiioolocrv. nor anv other tliintr. ever dlrl
or ever can mako them harmonizo. Tho
snccess ot tho one is the destruotion of tho
other. Tho protootiou o oither rcquires
tho sacriilca of tho other. How to pre
serve both is a problom which no stato
has over beon oblo to solvo. Not for anv
lack of effort, howover, as tho legit'lation
of tho last flfty years boars abundant
witnoss. Was ever any principle moro
juggled with ? How not to do it has
seeuied to bo tho chlef design of all par
ties. Not but that tliero havo always
been sinoere and worthy champions of the
home as against tho saloon, but they have
been at the morcy of wire-pulHng cliques
who wero interested in tho tralfic, and the
ohiuk of whoso motiey has Mnothered the
cry of tho distressed, and mocked at tho
tears oi tho homoless.
t Tho homo versns the saloon I Tho sen
timents and tho arguments which repre
sent these two forces are at last crystal
ized and concreted into something very
definitn and plain. Thero is no longer
any doubt that he who is not for us is
against us. Ho who pays his devotions
at the bar of tho saloon cannot come
with clean hands to tho altar at home.
Thoro is no Kflinity between tha two. Ile
must love tho ono and hato tho other he
cannot longer pretend to serve two rnas
tors. Tho lines aro drawn, and every
man must chooso this day whom ho will
serve. Evory man of lawf ul ago, and not
an ldiot or a criminal, will bo callod upon
to deposit his ballot for tho homo or for
tho saloon, as may seem to him best.
But thero is a lnrge aud somawhat re
spectablo non-votiug class, who are nei
ther minors, idiots, nor criminals. They
aro poisous of mature age, average intelli
gonce, and fair morals. And they have
an interest small, perbaps but it may
bo worth mentioning iu this canvass. In
deed, it is said to bo chiefly on thoir
account that tho canvass is uudertakon,
for " What is home without a mother ? "
as the poet says. So you see tho canvasn
is practical the poetry to be furnished
by those who do not furnish the ballots.
And is there notenough of it for one cam
paign at least V Who can utter it ? For
many years tho vory air of heaven has
been laden with it. The clouds have been
thick and heavy with the tears of it.
Winds havo beon solemn aud mournful
with the voico of it. Tho sod of hill and
valley has been watered with it. The re
quiem ot the gravo has been mingled with
it, and the ear of the Eternal has listened
to it. The ears of men seem at last to
catch ita tmport, and the conscieuce of
man has long been iuvoked in vain, but
now that tho giant has roused himself,
and sounded the trumpet of battle, we
shall sea what we shall see. Had it been
constitutional for the homo itself to voto,
tho coutroversy might have been settled
long ago. The saloon has voted early and
late the homo never. We now see tho
saloon ranged on ono side, and tho self
constituted " protectors " of the home on
the other. There ought to be only one
issno possible. Evory clvilizsd state is
founded on tho home. It does seem as if
acivilized state might ezist without the
saloon. The stronger aud purer the home,
the stronger and purer the state. To
eliminate the saloon from the state is to
strengthen and purify the home. May
the God of battles give courago and wis
dom to its defenders. Chrulian at Wrk.

No wonder that the business men of
Chicago, as well as meu representingmost
of the leadiug professions are beginning
to nnite in a Citizen's Leaguo for the pur
poso of rescuing this city from tho hands
of the whiskey men. Chicago has 3.8C0
licensed liquor shops, and if wo add to
these the drug stores, grocories and other
placos where liquor is sold without license,
it makes 5,000 dispensaries of intoxicants
within the city limits. That givea one
dram-shop to every one hundred and
twenty inhabitauta. Thero are about
2,500 stores, groceries, butcher and baker
shops for tho supply of food in Chicago,
just abont half as many places for the sup
ply of fcod as there aro for sellingliqnor.
Tho mayor and ruling spirits in the city
government are hand in glove with Uie
saloons and ganiblers and thieves. It is
asaerted by Hon. Emory Storrs, in the
Tribune, that a great many criminals, as
soon as they get out of the penitentiary at
Joliet, are at ouco furnished with a certifi
cato of good moral cbaracter by tho city
authorities of Chicago aud enter at ouce
into tbe saloon busiuess. Nothing short
of a general movemeutanduuity of eifort
on tho part of tbe better element in Chi
cago cau stom the tide against this flood
of iuiquity. On' the North Side alone
there are C52 saloons, and thirty-eight
chnrches. Here is a good field for the
Evangelical Ministers' Alliauce iu this
city, and for the Congregational Club,
and for every other respectablo orgauiza
tion, to get in its best work at once.
