And where onco the aeed we acattorod In the sprlngtlmo puro and aweet, I,o I we ilnd when coines the harvest Tarea are mlngled wlth the wheat, Wo roar sow the aeeds of temperauco Iu the heart ot glrl or boy, But tho gllded dens ol batau Wftlt thelr vlctlnis to destroyi Wo may plant the temperauco banuer O'er tlio homea ot want nnd woe, llut tho tompter grasps the atandard, Aud cxultant laya It low. llut though Batan'a liosts nro marahalled To defeat thla causo of ours, And the cloud ot black Intemperanco Darkly o'er our pathway lowcra, Yot we'll flght tho wlnnlng battle, I'or our troops are bravo and strong: Urnlns undlmmed and pulses ateady, They wlll trlumph o'er the wrong. Let us, test our courage fattor, At thls temperanco revlew, llrlng bcfore us In proceaslen Alllea whlch wlll prore us truo.

Noxt we aeo the many faces Of our war-acnrred veteraua, Who havo done tts yeoman servtce, or wlll fall ln daya to corae. Often wlth the war-cry rlnglng Havo they atormod hell'a gatea anew, And wo'vo wrltton on tlielr bannora " Theso the fnlthful, trled and truo." Noxt no aee a ttrong battalion Of the wotnen of the land, Who havo donncd the tempernnce armor And gone forth a conquerlng band.

All too well ho knows that often IIo has entered bomes of joy, Aed wlth wlly arta begulllng Rulned thero her darllng boy.

Thua n nilghty powor she'a wloldlng, Wlth her shafts at evll hurlcd, For "the hand that rocks the cradle" Is " the hand that rules tho world." Noxt wlthlu thla vaat proceaslon Comcs a host four mllllon strong, And thelr badgoa, " C. K," " K.

Evcniiowthcclarlons aounded From the leadera of the band, " Forward, comradcs, to the rescue, Lot ua aavo our fatherland."

Many mllllona of them marchlng, From the Sunday-school they come; And thelr little hearts beat quickly To the tuno of love and home. When thelr brothers fall ln battle, Wlth thelr facca to the foe, These will aelze the royal bauner And to victory wlll go. They wlll echo stlll our war cry, Aa they charge the rebol band, " 'Tls for liberty we wreatle, 1 (lod and home and every land.' " And ainong our worthy alllea Aro the white wlnga of the press, Clrcllug round and 'mong thls army, To encourage, strengthen, bless.

Woinnn'H Clirlstlnn Tcniporniico Unlon, WHAT IS ABKED OF TUE CIIUIICIIBS. Tho following osBay wns wrltton by Mrs. Emma A. Nlchols of liarro and rcad nt tho rocont County Woman'e ChrlBtlnn Tomporanco Unlon Convon tlon hcld at rininflokl: Tho churchcs of to-dav should bo broad and comprohensivo. Thoy nccd to oxpress tho eplrit of tho Lord's Prayor and tho Ton Commandmonts. and to deal bravclv wlth tho social probloma of tho day. a lrst ot all, ciiurciica anouiu como ln touch wlth tho nccds of tho mass of tho peoplo. Tho timo for doctrinal eor- mons is nast, conBcnuenuy au sermons should touch Hghtly upon the nccept- anco of doctrinal points, but most strongly on good works for tho peoplo on intomporanco and duties of indl viduals in soclely to themselvos and to otners. Proof-toxts for the cdlQcation of hoarers amount to llttlo but a wasto of tlmo, but if a sermon can havo tho powor to touch tho bed-rock of human naturo and anneal to tho avoraco in- telllgenco of tho people on subjccts of right llvlng, intomporanco, dutios to the govornmont, lo Bocioty and to thomaelves, so as to awakon a dlrcct cousciouBiiess of tho rceponsiblo duty we owo to overy human belng, as woll as to our Makor, wo could well say such sermons bear to us a Christ-liko mes- sago of a llvlng gospel that calls to cach ono " To bo up and dolng, Wlth n heart for nny f ate, Btlllachlovlng, stlll pursulng, Learn to labor and to walt " for tho upbuilding of humanity. Tho idea that becauso a creod or dojrma ox isted in tho pnst lt niust bo hcldBacrcd, is to-day but a cobwob on the face of tho present, which tho hand of Pro gression is fast brushing away. Novor was thero a timo when questions of such far-reuching sinificanco and Impor tance confrontcd tho pulpit. Never a time whon earnest and progressivo work was moro noedcd than to'day. Sermons should be givon that would touch the hearts of men, aud bring them into tho work of uplif ting the lowor massca and thoso that havo lost tho way in which our Lord and Master walked. The present dcmand3 of tho peoplo require that tho clergy should throw off thoir cloaks of creed and stop poa ing so long on their intellcctual abllity to explain aome technical paaaago in tho Bible. If thoy would notloso their rcligious enthusiasm by ao doing it would flll many vacant seats in churchcs to-day, und if they would lot the beau tiful moaning ot the words, " I como not to de8troy, but to fultll tho law," pormeato every discourac, thoy would give now power to tho cxamplea of Chriat. Chriat had no creed. His ono great mesaago was tho love and father hood of God and tho brotherhood of man, and that beautiful messagu, when clcarly understood, is tho shuttlo that weavcs many golden, auuny threads in tho dark web of lifo. I believe consor vatiam in many ways haa crippled the churches in thoir power for good, and has restrained both preacher and church from applying tho noble teach ings of Christ to the daily wants of the people for, as a neceaaity, creedal scr monB do not and canuot deal with the great social problema that threaten to day to undermine tho stability of tho nation. Every paator should rcalizo that to preach tho gospel means a divino com miasion, and hia minialrationB should reach insidc and outsido in all that pertuins to lifo. Christ went out among atruggling and suffering humanity. Ho uid not do his most oulcient work in bowing to, llattering and whitowashing men of wealth, whoso moral character would not carry a feather's weight in the acalo of integrity and honor. Tho timo has como when tho Church cannot keop silent longer on tho great ques tiona that aro oppressing the maases. Sho has beon handicapped long enough, and sho should come fcarlcssly to tho front and give oxpression to all that relates 10 tho temporal neods of tho poor men and women of to-day, for if thero is any duty devolving on tho pas tor it certainly is that of preaching ser mons against intomporanco and op prosslon in ovory form. The old the ology of tho Puritana atill fluds too much oxpreaaion from Now England pulpita, and does not keep abreast with the broader thought and moro rapid growthof tho ninoteenth contury. Christianity is a growth from princi ples and not croeds. It ia a deplorablo fact that to-day our minlatcra in cortain localitiea cannot prcach the aermona they know tho peoplo need ln the way of reform.

In my own town tho dcaconB of ono ofthe churchcs havo rofusod to allow thelr paator to cloao his church ono Sunday evoning ln tho month to joln ln a unlon temperance sorvlco at tho Onera Housn.

I mentlon theae fow facts of many aimilar, whlch cloarly show how hard it ls for a Ereachor, oftontimos, to do tho work o knows tho peoplo need, on account of tho tremondous forco that ls brought to boar on tho pulpit and preaa by tho monopoliata. Tho aigns of tho timea demand a liv ing Chriat, a progrossivo gospel and an earnest, inspiratlonal paator. who shall work to lay out a courso of inatruction for tho government of tho young in all the varlous walks of lifo, sotting before them tho highcst ideals of noble man hood and womanhood. A paator ahould Btrivo to mako thcm fcol that he is espocially interested in them and that his Hfo's work is for thoir welfaro and upbuilding. Further ho should inter est himsolf in the daily affalrs and hopos of every man and woman wlth a viow to ascortalning thelr needs. I callspoclal attontion tothls aubiect, for statistics show that in our large clties hardly two per ccnt of tho work ingmon and women attend church. And thoy givo as a rcason that the churches, as now couducted, aro for tho rich, not the poor; for tho capi talist, not tho laborer; for the liquor manufacturor and dealor, not for the poor intemperato and their wives and childron and this simply becauso their financial support comcs from tho rich, the capitalists, tho liquor-manufacturer and dealer, and not the poor, that moat needs tho pulpit's uplifting iuiluence. I would ask that our churches work more diligently with us to help put down thla great evil. The Christian nationa aro tho only religioua nationa whero druukenneaa ia tolerated. And this fact makes us feel most fully thc need of help from not only our churches, but alao tho deacons and laymen of certain churches nearbyus,to help put down this terrible demon of evil. Such times as those demand help from every side. God givo us noble work ers, with strong aud fearlesa souls, both men and women, who poesess opinions and strong minds, that will not turn thia way and that to plcaso public opin ion, but will work with readv hands and atand for the right untif temper anco reigns whero wrong rules the laud. But we will bo bravo and fcar not, and courage should be the watchword of faltering souls every where; for there was nover a timo in tho history of civ ilization when so many noblo workers wero banded together as to-day in this our cauao for right. Notwithstanding the liquor trafllc now nearly paralyzes us, and chills us to the heart with its powor, it shall yet bo put down. So courage all, and look to the East, for lo, tho dark clouds aro changing to purplo and gold. And our banner shall floatat the cates of new day, So forward each worker and we'll make no delay; For sad crlea from the hungry are lieard far anu near, And foud-hearted motbers are now weeplng ln fear. For the homea are all dark, for the drunkarda are there, And the childron nre dylng ln bopeless dospalr. Ilarkl Mothers are trylng to hush the sobblng cry Of thelr darllngs.
