In all the broad range of articles that, in a state
of civilisation, are needed by man, the only abeso
lately indispensaMe things is money. For every
thing else there is some subhtautt-ome alterna

feed, If beef rise in ptriee, the demand for it will
diminish as a certain proportion of the people will
resort to other forms of food. If, by resson of its
estinued scarcity, beef continues to rise, the de
mnsadwil further diminish, until finally It may al
together cease and center on something else. So in
the matter of clothing. If any one fabric becomes
scares and ena quetly dear, the demand will
dimlaish, and, it the price continue rising, It is
ealy a questiom of time for the demand to cease
and be transferred to some alternative.

Editor Lotuiniana I'oplulint :
1)EAR SIR :-I wish to drop a
fiw thoughts in regard to preacuh
ing for money. Alas ! alas! the
truth is too often told and more
tarcibly impressed by actions than
words; so it is with the preacher
that will not preach for a church or
people without a stipulated salary.
They say it is through means of
the gospel that sinners must be
saved, and so it is; but if they, nor
any one else will not nor can not
preach it without a certain amount
of money, it must follow that it is
a money salvation, but Christ and
his holy apostles declored that sal
vation was by grace and that, free
grace. Oh, brethren, what is the
value of an immortal soul, is it not
worth a litfe of toil and labor I We
have often heard that one soul was
worth ten thousand worlds like
this. Jesus says, "For what a man
profiteth if lie shall gain the whole
world and lose his own soul," or
what shall a man give in exchange
for his soul. Jesus ga, e his whole
life, suffered hunger and persecu
tion, died the ignominious death of
the cross for salvation of poor lost,
ruined sinners. But some.of his
professed followers holding higher
offices than coald be given by men,
will not give from two to four days
out of each month without demaud
ing a certain sum from God's peo
pie as a remuneration for their ser
vices, and in some instances receive
'a pledge of the church for the sum
demanded. Consistency, oh! con
sistency thou art a jewel. Would
the truly converted soul when it
first felt that God for Christ sake
had pardoned its sin, have stopped
to make such demands, would that
good brother when he first felt that
impression of the holy spirit to go
preach the unsearchable riches of
Christ have halted to consider
about his salary. No, in the name
of Jesnus, would be the unanimous
answer of every truly converted
and spiritually called gospel minis.
ter in the land that such demands
together with the motives that
prompt theta, signify a want of
faith in a threefold sense is certain.
First, a want of faith iu their own
ability to wield an influence for
good. Second, a want of faith in
the integrity and spiritual interest
of the church anmid people to serve.
Third, a want of faith in the prom
ise of God made through Jesus
Oh, dear brethren, go preach
Christ and him crucified to poor
lost and ruined sinners. Take God
at his word and no longer doubt or
fear; take no thought for your life
what ye shall eat or what ye shall
drink, nor yet for your body what
ye shall put on, goin meekness and
in love teaching the truth as it is
in Jesuans, remembering that be has
promised to be with you always,
even to the end of the worldp, truth
like its author, will prevail. Jesus
has said, tI am the way, the truth
and the life,' he then being the
truth iD must prevail, for he has
decla by his holy apostles that
to his name every knee shall bow
an every tongue shall confess
again. The Lord says, look unto
meall the ends of the earth and be
ye saved for I am God and besides
ther is mnoe other, again all shall
knew me from the least to the
gpatet. TrUth must and will pre
vraS r God has said so and his
wad is trath. Thea brethrn let

DALLAs, Tex., Aug. 24.-The
laboring men of Dallas hela a mass
meeting last night and after listen

speeches, passed a long and bitter
series of resolutions against the
State Democratic platform, because
of its endorsement of President
Cleveland's use of federal trooos in
Chicago during the late strike, be
cause of its failure to endorse free
silver coinage at the ratio of 16 to
