A sketch of ex-Senator Ingnlls' career
will be of interest to many in this county
who will hear him on one of the next
three evenings. John Jmes Ingalls was
born in MuMimchuHetts and is a graduate
of Williams college. lie studied for the
law and was admit ted to pracat ice inl857;
he went to Kansas in 1838. He was a
delegate to the Wyandotte constitution
al convention in 1839, secretary of the
territorial council in 18G0 and a State
neriMtor in 18GI. II Brut attracted pub
lic notice through a series of articles in
the Atcbinsoti Champion, which he edited,
on wentorn life. He went to the United
States senate in 1873 and served until
1N91. Since his defeat by the populifts
he has not been lout to the public, but

At this meeting a variety of business will

not be dincussed before the meeting, for
the minds ot air the members are tiot
known on the subjects, but matters will
also come up relating to enlarging the
club houee. the building of grounds for
tennis, croquet, the building of a bowl

club on the same lines as was the snow
shoe club, and these have already been
much talked of. A full meeting of mem

to be an important one.

o attempt at concealment Is made, and

They are maintained under the direct and
Immediate patronage of congress itself.
Probably a greater amount of liquor Is
told every day In either of these plaoes
than in any other saloon In Washington.
At any moment one may go to the house

employees taking drinks. There Is no bar,
but it Is only necessary for one to sit down
at convenient littlo tables and order what
he wants. It Is not even required that one

so much during the afternoon that they

was In former times, but there Is still en
tirely too much, and lt Is too public. It 1

Comment by Ilev. 8. 11. Dojle.
Tone-Diligent In Luineaa.-Prov. vL a-Ul
Joshua nil, 6.
Many people have false ideas as to
the attitude of the Bible toward busi
ness and religion. They think the Bible
bas little to say about business and re
ligion, and, in fact, that there is little
real connection between business and
religion and religion and business.
These ideas are utterly false and absurd.
Tho Bible teaches emphatically two
principles in reference to the mutual
relations of business and religion first,
that we should have business in our re
ligion, and, secondly, that we should
have religion in our business. These
ideas are brought out in onr topical ref
erences. 1. Diligence in business, Prov. vi.
C-l 1. In these words the wise man use
the industry of the ant to urge the sloth
ful to diligenoe in business. The Bible
is a practical book. It deals not only
with the unseen fntnre life, but also
with the present life. It recognizes the
necessity of daily toil, of being diligent
and tealons in some vocation in life,
and it constantly urges upon ns the im
portance and value of this necessity.
We are enjoined not to be Elothful in
business, but to be fervent in spirit,
serving tho Lord. This brings onr reli
gion down to the practical walks of life,
and makes a man serve God by beiDg
industrious and diligent in some useful
calling. God has no use for tho slothful
and the sluggards. He put ns all in this
wnrlrl fnr a nnrnosa and Ha wants OS to
fulfill that purpose. We do this to some
extent by being encaged in some useful
2. Diligent in religion. Joshua xxii, 6.
"Take diligent heed to do the command
ment of the law, which Moses, the serv
ant of the Lord, charged you, to love the
Lord, your God, and to walk in all His
ways, and to keep His commandments,
and to cleave unto Him, and to serve
Dim with all ycrar heart and with all
yonrsouLM Thus Joshua commanded
the children of Israel to be diligent in
religion. The same command is applica
ble to ca. We aro not enly to be dili
gent in eerviDg ourselves, but diligent
in serving God. Religion is doing God's
business for Him, and surely we 6hould
not be less faithful, less regular, less
punctual, less diligent, when engaged
in business for God than when engaged
in business for ourselves. Let us look
upon onr religion as a business, and let
ns apply the same principles to it that
business men apply to their business.
Let us bo diligent to observe and do all
the will of God.

Functions of tho CnJted Society.
The trustees of the United society de
sire to call especial attention to tho fol
lowing portion of the president's report,
to which tbey give the heartiest in
dorsement: "The glory of the move
ment is that it bas been Gcd's move
ment As a board of trustees and as of
ficers of the United society we have
resolutely refused to exercise any au
thority to legislate for any society or
to decide any local questions of admin
istration. All tbee matters beloDg cx
closively to the pastors and churches.
This idea, so difficult for the general
public to understand, enters into all our
conventions and molds the character of
onr brotherhood everywhere. Our con
veutions are mass meeting:), without
one legislative function, without the
possibility of interfering with or direct
ing the affairs of any society.
"We believe that o clear understand
ing and development of this idea will
make plain our way in the many per
plexing paths of the future. It has a
bearing upon the character and purpose
of all our conventions. It refers every
difficult question relating to societies
back to the only court of arbitration
the church to which the society belongs.
It prescribes the character of cur fel
lowship, which on this basis only may
bo as broad as the universal church of
Christ itself. It limits, as they ought to
be limited, the functions of the United
society, making it simply a bureau of
information and statistics.'
6lng With tho Spirit,
The Christian Endeavor pledge never
intended to slight tho service of 6ong
Rather did it enjoin upon every mem
ber tho duty of music, ty framing the
phrase referring to siugi ag. A song Is
the first sound that bursts from the
heart of the soul as it is led into the
light And a 6ong, "a new song," is to
accompany all our deeds in tho eternal
day ot our homo. A 6oug welcomed the
Saviour to earth; a song welcomes ev
ery newborn soul into heaven. Surely
an agency so divinely sanctioned is uot
to be disregarded. Christian Endeavor
services, as all gatherings of believers,
ought to sing with tho spirit and the
understanding also. Golden hulo.
