MEAD CYCLE CO. «j. c. z. a. in Edited by Union Members A Holy Fear. I would be afraid to offer to a woman remarked a i i young man or a young wine pr champagne, society woman the other day. would be fearful of starting an ap petite that would lead to indul gence and result in a wrecked life. Would that every social leader could be controlled by such a wholesome fear of injuring her fellows. There is a "divine don't care,'' but there is also a "holy caution'' that prompts one to be afraid to do that which may result in Injury to another. A conscientious fear on the part of fathers and mothers of permit ting their sons and daughters to go out into the world without having instilled in their hearts the principle of total abstinence would, in a few years, deprive the liquor dater of a large part of its patron * or of is tbe i » < t > i in age. The times sorely need teachers in our puhäc schools and in our colleges and universities who are afraid to be silent on the saith science'' and the "Thus saitb the Lord'' concerning alcohol. Thus < « Tbe demand is Imperative for preachers in our pulpits and jottrn alists on our newspapers who shall fear to neglect the preaching or the teaching of tbe gospel of civic righteousness as it has to no with the liquor and vice evils. Vastly safer and purer would this world be were every voter, upon election day, obsessed by a fear lest he cast a ballot in favor of any institution or business that is destructive to the young life of tbe nation. Jack Russell, a former Port Gibsoo negro, but for tbe past twenty five years porter in tbe New Orleans Cotton Exchange, died recently.
