It looks very much an If tho World's
Fair will Ixi ktpt open on Sunday.
Public opinion has a wonderful
Influence upon a large percentage of
tho human race. Often time people
have decided that thoy will not do
certain things and then public opinion
comes along with its great persunslvo
forces and things are done, some
times almost against their oposing
conscience, yet public opinion has tho
upper hand.
Pittsburg's dens of demoralization,
with all their appalling immoralities,
have been held up to the public In their
true light during the past few weeks,
and yot some of the officials of that city
have become so debased and such
Btranpors to common decency that they
say It Is a "necessary evil." An official
who looks upon such "dens of iniquity"
and for a little worldly grain will not
put forth his best elTorts to blot them
out of the city, is unworthy the name
of man.
If peiplo would think of tho present
alone and not lament about the past
r do apprehensive of the future,
they would be happier. Regret and
anticipltation are tho skeletons whose
grieving jaws mark our joys and shut
out tho Bunshine from our lives. When
a man has a cramp in the stomach or a
bad caso of the toothache, he thinks
only of tho present, and says In his
inmost soul "Drat the past and future
too. Let me have Immunity from
present pain." But no sooner has the
peppermint drops or tho forceps dissi
pated his present griof than ho goes
gunning for something to worry about
Into the paHt or the future. Happiness
or misery is merely a condition of
mind, and your environment has little
to do with it. Punxsutawncy Spirit.
The year 1892, with all its appalling
calamaties, great struggles between
capital and labor, with its joy and
gladness, sorrow and sadness, will soon
be rolled away in the archives of time.
Many will look back over the days of
this year and be filled with rapture as
.they count the little things they have
done for the elevation of humanity,
the kind words said, and feel a
satisfaction of knowing that they did
their best to improve all the oppor
tunities of ennobling their lives that
the" year brought, while others will
look back over the year and see nothing
but lost opportunities of doing good and
meeting life as they found it every day,
and the ghosts of mean acts, unkind
words, slanders about their neighbors
which their tongues gave the first start,
. abuse of wife, family, friends and thoir
own bodies. Would It not be a grand
act for thse who look back over such
a worthless life for one year, to resolve
to begin now to 11 vo as the Lord intendod
they should. There are many sunny
places in life's journey if you look for
thorn. Learn to look on the bright side
of all things. A man who has content
ment is rich Indeed. Then greet 1893
with a determination to sip tho honey
that the busy bee of oppurtunity of
doing good brings you and steer cloar
of crab apple trees that wrinkle your
face and dwarf your soul.
It is easy to resolve to rise early, but
how hard it is to carry tho resolution
into effect. Beecher said one winter's
day, "nobody is healthy and vigorous
who does not fool the morning electric
ity. The silonce, in winter, of the hour
boforo sunrise; the solemn heaven, out
of which the stars have gone, and which
is girdlod round its horizon with gray,
changing low down to faint orange; the
growing light, revealing each feature
of the landscape with Bharpness as
emerging new struck from a die,
produco an effect of exhiloration far
greater than. If accompanied with mixed
sound. The wild chorus of birds in
Bummer mornings, mingled with the
barking of dogs, the lowing of cattle,
and the voices of men, has charm of its
own, but it is wild and worldly
excitement, a carnival of joy. But
these early winter mornings are solemn
spiritual, and divine. There can hardly
be any boisterous emotion. All
quieting, mediative soul-gladness. And
yet the reluctance with which I got
up of a morning to enter into all
this ennobling experience is a striking
evidence of human nature too lazy to
be blessed ! The morning of which
write was glorious. The air was mild
The lake tranquil. Nature altogether
benign. Every wrinkle was smoothed
from her brow, and her heart beat
warm with welcomes: hut. alas, all
this passed in a vain show. Bleep,
coquetting and unmanageable before
midnight, sought to make up it
