It is the sun of villainies, the father of all crimes, the mother of all abomination, the devil’s best friend and God’s worst enemy.” Now if there is anything else that can be said as an arraignment of this master destroyer, that you can think of that has been over looked by Mr. Ingersol, you can just add it to the denunciation, tor you will not be wrong in the addition. And yet we can find men, who, in the presence of de cency, will step over on the side of this demon of vengeance and horror. Is there one thing in the above scathing article that is not true of this debaucher of man kind? We will answer, No! The following delegates have been selected by their respective orders to attend the Biennial Con ventions of the O. II. C., B. of L. F. & E. and B. of R. T.: A. W. Moss for the O. R.

The State of Wisconsin has come to the help of labor this last, year by enacting a law that the stores which sell dry goods, clothing,; furniture, jewelry, tea, coffee and spices,crockery or hard ware, are nut entitled to keep open on Sunday on the plea of necessity or charity. They must therefore obey the stat ute, and close on Sunday. Hawaii has struck out barber shops from the list of those that may remain open seven days in a week, Con gress has passed an act requiring that all city letter carriers, wno work at all on Sunday, shall have an equal time otl on some work day of the succeeding week; while the Connecticut legislature has enact ed a similar law that workmen employed on Sunday shall have one full day off in the next six. Sunday labor is not worthy of American civilization. Our land was founded by men of faith; it owes its greatness to the Christian character of its early citizens. The war of the church against Sunday labor is due to greed and to thoughtlessness, joined in unpatri otic and irreligious alliance. Man needs one day’s rest in seven. To rob the laborer of his day of rest is not only against the law of God but against even the far lower law of efficiency. Sunday’s rest is necessary to the week’s work. Even on this mate rial ground, the Sabbath is vital to national prosperity. But Sunday is also a spiritual breathing space, a recurring call to what is noblest in man, a weaker link uniting man with Inf Maker. The nation that does not guard Sunday makes a perilous mistake; and it is pleasant to see that American public opin ion is more and more reaffirming the Fourth Commandment—Ex change.^_ Mr. and Mrs. S. P. Carr and Children returned home Tuesday of last week from a few days’ visit to New Orleans. Mr. Edwin Willis, of Memphis, I is in the city for a weeks’ visit to his sister, Miss Ida Belle Willis.
