Claud Weaver, congress man from Oklahoma writing to Leslie’s Illustrated Weekly, says: “It is sweet on a summer’s morning, when the air is aquiver with the long songs of the birds and fragrant witli the odor of roses blown, to hear the music ol the church going bells, an invita tion to the world-wearied to enter God’s temple and find peace, be cause the instinct of worship is in the heart of man and the church is the temple of the living God. ‘Tgo to churcn because I find peace there, that place which De Quincy described as a resting from human labors, a sabbath of repose, a respite granted from the secret burdens of the heari, as if I stood at a distance and aloof from the uproar of hte; as if the tumult and fever and strife were suspended; as if there brooded over me a dove like and halcyon calm. “I go to church because I love the music that I hear there, the mighty roll of the great organ, mingled with the marvelous sym phonies of that diyine stringed instrument, the human voice, untwisting all the chains that tie the hidden soul of harmony. “I go to church because 1 de light to hear the teachings of the preacher, whose soul is dedicated to God, whose held is as wide as God’s universe, whose theme is the destiny of man, and whose words are the oracles of Fate. Marvelous is the spell of the preacher to whom God has given genius and consecration and the power of illustration drawn from the old, sacred, immortal Book, and from ihe miracles of nature, no less revealed in the crimson tipped flower turned up by the plowshare of Robert Burns upon the soil of Ary, than in the long reaches of the star-girt skies. “1 go to church because the way is da**k and I am far from home,’ and because the church is the polar star to light my path way in the rayless night. Igo to church because tin church ministers not only to the spiritual but also to the material needs of life, and because it is there that the chaities that soothe and heal ana bless aie scattered at the feel of man like flowers, “I go to church because in that atmosphere vice and crime with er and die. “I go to church because 1 hear the teachings of the philosphy of Jesus, the incomparable man; and if you say his teachings philosophy and not religion and that he was a man and not a God theu the philosophy of that man has redeemed the world from savory and blessed mankind with Christian civilzation, and, to my mind, it is a thing worth while to hear, “I go to church because I find there consolation and hope, be cause I see there the dawn and not the sunset; and it is better for man, and if hope is baseless and the vision but an elusive phantom, to cherish a dream so glorious and beautiful than to be weighed down and crushed with the quarried mountains of a world without hope and without God.” We are glad to report that the condition of Mr. Ed Carpenter who was accidentally shot last week is favoaable and from the statement of his attending phy sician will be out in a few days.
