It is far more danger- ,, ous than any other conceivable one, (;, from the fact that it menaces the home, h, the greatest of all institutions. In th Massachusetts in 1860 there was one In divorce ifty nmarria'ges,in 1876 one wl 'to every twenty, and in 1883 one to it everyfourteen. In NewEngland2,000 lh families are broken up by divorce every d: year. Thris alone is an appalling state of ti affairs. Along with the increase in t divorce moral poison has increased. di Inthe period between 1860-70divorce T increased two and one-half times in In frequency,whilecrimesagainstchastity (cI amd morality increased three-fold. 1n Tihe question then conies: lias not n looseness of legislation fostered loose- ,. ness of social life, and how long will it .A take to bring the ratio of divorce to "t m'arriage to an equity? Then the c( home _s an institution will be de- ~. *Mi~sel and the millennium of hell ý ,* IUehert. 'The mnarriage bond is st sinking in the public estimation to a ja mere civil contract, and there ta needsto be a reassertion of the divine gi origin of marriage. The Roman Catho- tl Schrvm - is not responsible for hi any of this state of affairs, be it said hIi to itq credit. The difficulty is, that sub- 1= ordinate reasons of a profane nature i W ' be undermined the sacred element. ' f tarriage has become the stepping- l, stone to improve family connect ons, 31 to gain admission to society, to gain i power, and many like thimgs. The, n young man looks for wealth, the girl to a Spinng her own way. The meaning of t I the institution seems to be inisappre- to handed. For this process of disinte- N rastion something is needed besides kl prohibitory legislation. It is not the Iq( lack of a high ideal that renders so a • lttny mntriages of our day a series of . Ssocial disasters? It must be religion sand morality in its highestsense. The k " ideal must be raised in thepopularand ' youthful nmind. The underlying ideal e and primeval principle is moral, not p . physcal or material. Theidea isthat it is not good for man to bealone, and e so woman was made as his comple- Ii Sment, his converse. The fundamental v principle is companionship. There is g nothing equal to the dreariness of a t . sart that has been torn from its " counterpart by death. The unmar- rI ried manl or woman must have some- . thing as a suhstitnte, either ingreater work orrlarger interests,to that self-ce- I tled seltishnesswhich makes the term 1 "old maid" or' bachelor"opprobious. i T~lsmwnrriage is the greatest moral good, an actual and absolute surrend- el .c the individual unit. The only higher act is surrender to God. True marriage is a redemptive force, and is I aimed to destroy sellishness and teach e us the secret of living for others and I not fop osuelvqp. The social value of I the institution is inevitably salutary hi in anysocialorg.anization. Soomelook t upon marriage in the same way as the i p1Ahhy otbhrds in sring. He who does i take this purely physical view is lower i than bird or teast. This danger can only be averted '.hstu yountg men and c women look at inn t riniony as a means of moral elevation and spiritual cn t- lighteiment. 'Pe 1enauties of Mexican Feather VWork.

Palmer. The following extract a r from the address happily describes the wh noblest characteristies of wonmar: lin The ages which have immediately evw precedeud the !ast hundred t ears were ages of faith, in which the pendulum swung beyond the reach or ken of reason. As a result when the pendui- an lumn swung back to the side of reason, I in impelled as it has teen by the added th1 force of discoveries in science and the of revolt of the humah mind from its in1 long bondage, it has swung clear be- Me yond the confines of faith. Now. the whereas faith not regulated by reason tai may be a dangerous guide, reason in rol inspired by faith has no vital power to to: advance the destinies of mankind or th add a grain to human happiness. thl This ae is not so much an age of wi unbelief as it is an age of unsettled reI beliefs, not only in religion, bult in all cO things. Science and a spirit of in quiry has unsettled nearly every pre- WI conceived theory from the origin of ce earthquakes down to the method of lihe making Jersey butter. But religion hi is not primarily a thing of the reason. ne iit is an aspiration, a reaching out for th something higher where reason may b not lead, but where she can follow andl il mark the line between religion and hi superstition. g Women are the guardians of the iT faith. To her faith is something more TI than a dogma. Be careful how you sI: permit it to be undermined by ape- ar cious reasoning or insidious and covert attacks. They say hope is the anchor di of the soul, but without faith the to cable is gone that ties you to hope. th To the healthful mind doubts will pre- Is sent themselves about dogmas and U forms, but the eternal truths, the w over ruling power, the immortal des- at tiny of man, his responsibility and the ti assurance that at last all things must el be made right, all inequalities recti- pl tied, these are living truths which every at a ml must recognize the necessity of, h; and therefore their existence, for if I w understand the basic principle of one b line of sceentific research it is this- b that where a need is felt, that need a ill be supplied. sl As in the olden time the sacred fire a was committed to the care of the ves- c tals, so is the flame of a pure and re- i. generate religion committed to the tl care of the womei of to-day. The 1i aspirations and ideas of the race. are d nurtured and guarded by her. Through ti her influence churches are reared and 1I i the sound of praise is heard in the a lantl. At her knee the lessons are im- p parted which, though silent in their a operation, inspire men to heroic effort or restrain them from guilt and impel 11 women to lives of self-sacrifice and a bring back the erring. The last thing a man ever forgets is v the prayer he has lisped at his moth- c cr's side. Tihe future is hers, for she, more h vthan any other, shapes the growth of v I the ien of the future, and her teach- r If ings can never be unfruitful, for they c - are incorporated with the tissues of h the youth, who will hereafter largely c control the dlestinoes of mankind. A In the Ulizzi Gallery in Florence a ' st.ands the statue of a woman. It is e rl an antique. It was chiseled in Athens c I. over 2,000 years ago. All that is beau tifu! in form and symmetrical in pro- r e portion is found in this statue. The t t shape of the Iambs, the lo.se of the t trunk and the contour of the head I have been the admiration of the artistic I d world for the last :4J0 years. This is i is the celebrated Vnus de Medicis. ( y After all it impresses you with no f . other idea than that here is the statue t " of a beautiful woman. There are no i i- suggestions of a soul, nothing but e sense. It tells no story. It marks no , epoch. It lumortaligs no sentiment i re save that of passion,. which would de- I it grade ratherethan exalt. I )f In one of lhe eor'idors of the Lou- i - vre at Paris stands another stane. It I g is also of Greek origin. No one knows I t the name of the artist. It is of heroic e size, but that does not add to its dig- I t nity. The arms are gone, but no pro- I e fane handl has ever dated attempt their I w restoration. The be ly, full of dignity, I Sstreongth and repose, would impress Syou by its qupet self-reliance. The features are not leautlful, by some I Sthey would not be called clAssic, but one would say impulsively that this t was chiseled in the likeness of some I a woman rapt m and inspired by some Slofty purpose, or t!at it was intended Sas an impersonation of those virtues e which artists in every age have de t lighted to represent through the per sonality of woman. You feel that this statue represents something over which death has no power, and which time cannot change. It looks the pure maiden, the wise matron, the e protector, the adviser, the consoler, L the inspirer, the sustainer. It repre r sents faith, hope, endureoe, resist nee; a soul self-poised andequal to eall things. e 8omethiank her to have been the h. tutelar deity of Melos, as Pallas * Athee was of Athens.
