"Tho liberty of tin' glory of tho chll ilrcn of f led." Romans S:SM. At 1 ottom tho question of freedom Is n religious iiucstton, a question of tho quality of poll with which a man faros tho world. The freest man tho world has seen wiib a friend of fishers, and liad not where, to Iny his head. Ills wny Is tho way to freedom for every man: strictest submission to truth, cost what may, fnlthfulest dlschargo of dills', In th- face of tho direst perils : atlent Ir'.'In , in tho world's worst treatment, 1 nt V 1 b ry still, freedom In the soul, whe-o .Liiii" la freedom worth having, or W'ir i y the nnmo.

Bncii I., tho freedom of u man really free, i.n l It cannot ho won by commercial and ei.'ivmilc meniiH, nor by tha ordering of go. emnu nts. rot hy flight to a wilder ness! where nodal restraint does not ex ist Discipline Is needful to real free dom, long training of the power of tho mind and tho capacities of the heart.

The only liberty Is tho llharty of the rlory of a manhood that found tho light, ind tho privilege to work for It, and tho )oy of making duty supreme.it master. Freedom Is tho purest personal posses tdon of a man's own heart: hU govern ment, his station In llf.i, his commercial sti ml Inn or attainments have nothing to tie wftn It.
