After Sermon Thoughts.
-,. The embodiment of all that Is evil
would constitute a personal Devil
and, reversely, the embodiment of
everything good would constitute a
personal God. We inherit a pagan
bias to give both God and the Devil a
material existence each in a definite
and limited domain of his own but
enlightenment-i» forcing us to relin
quish this idei, and Reason rejects it.
It is possible, however, for a' human
being to embody so much evil as to
make him intolerable to civilization
and society. His influence is a deadly
poison to Virtue. He ignores the ex
istence of law in his endeavors to live
his evil life, in consequence of which
he is confined behind ironed walis.
lint all human devils are not crimi
nals, nor art' ill criminals Imimiu de
vils. The laws of nnn are deplorably
detect iv« mid inadequate, often
thrustinv' fairly ioort fellow into
prison, wirle they permit a writable
unman devil to run at large, besotted
libertiue-i that exuale a demoralizing
virus wherever they go. It is possible
for human society to reach perfection
in its osganizuiion only by conform
ing to the laws of God, which asser
tion brings us into the presence of the
following conclusion: When the
lavsof man and the laws of (iod are
identical, then will the human race
reach a painlt-ss equilibrium. Then,
ami not. until then can the hells of
heaveu ring over a world redeemed
and made happy by the fulfillment of
the mission of Ohyist. How many

London'* Comic Paper,
London Punch was concocted in the
back parlor of a public house behind
Drury Lane theater. The first editor
of Punch was the landlord of that tav
ern, and in that room assembled al
most every night some of the most
lively wits of the day—more noted, as
Dion Boucicault tells, for wit than
money. The landlord made punch, and
around the bowl those men would sit
drinking, smoking and cracking jokes.
The landlord proposed that their
jokes should not be wasted, that their
wit should start a comic paper. A
good idea, but what name to give it?
What name? The child should have
its father's name. And the landlord
pointed to the bowl of punch. And
the paper was started. It struggled on
for about a year and then was sold
for £100 to Eradbury & Evans, the
Arm that printed it. The best writers
In England hastened to their standard.

The Word "Cannibalism."
The word "cannibalism" is really the
name of a people. It is identical with
Carib, many of the Caribs, who for
merly flourished in the West Indies,
having been consumers of human flesh.
The letters "1," "n" and "r" are Inter
changeable In certain aboriginal Ameri
can languages, so that Columbus found
one West Indian Island saying "Cani
ba" where another said "Carib," while
Shakespeare's Caliban Is another va
riety of the same. Columbus' own con
jecture was that the name was con
nected with the great khan, and later
philologists of the old slapdash type as
sociated with "canis," a dog. Ap
parently, however, the meaning of
"carib" was brave and daring.
