The ca.-e in ipiestii'ii U that of Ziebohl & llagelin, of Atchison, Kan., who miintain Ihat; the suppression of their Injiur business was in vi'd.ition of the lourteenth ini'Miclinenl to tin; Constitution, which provides as follows: No State .-hall mase anv law which shall abridge the privileges or immuni lies of citizens of thu United Slate-; nor shall :tn Slate deprive any person of life, liberty, or propeity wit host due pioi-ess of law. The United States Supreme Court having all eady decided that prohibition laws are permissible under the United States Constitution, the firm named seek to re over d.iuiases from the State of Kansas lor the lo-s of prope ty' nnil business they have suffered. The Unt ied States Distnet Couit decided in favor of the claimants, and the ease was cat lied up to the Supreme C-urt by the Slate, and has been submitted on briefs and arguments presented by the claimants, and by biiefs nly on the part of the State. Ancffiitwas made recently to reopen the case fur argu ment by Hie Slate also, which may be successful, anil an eaily i;uei:i.'ii on me main question is confidently expected. On this decision the immediate inline of the prohibition cause may bu said to depend. If the couit deeiUes in favor d the claimants in this case, then any Stati' which enforces a piohibilory law imift pay the damages accruing Iheie b to those engan'.'ii in the lnmor traf lie. In the face of such decision it is :i!nio-t needles- to say that it would be many years before the majority in any Slate would vote for prohibition; and in view of the bu dens thus imposed it is probable that prohibitory huts in some of the Stales would be re pealed. The taxpayers would not M:.nd the direct burden "thus itnpo-ed. what ever the mdiicct burden ot the traffic nf'gbt be. If the decision is ia favor of the State ot K-insns, the prohibition movement will be encouraged and stiengthcned. Since the death of Judge Woods, the Supreme Court has contained only eight juticc. In k former Kansas case which did not. however, involve this precise issue, the court divided, lour jiutices on eu-h side. Should they divide in this case, it would be equiv alent to a decision in fayor of the claim ants, and a serious repul;c to the pro hibitionists. It would not be final, however, for a n-w case would un doubtedly be made up fr argument as ioon as tho Supreme Uencli was filled. Nothing short of a decision concurred in by the majority of a full bench can definitely settle the question. The views of the person to be selected by the President lo till tho vacancy in the Sup reme Couit on the question of prohibi tion are a mailer of el l iking interest to prohibitionists and those engaged in the liquor traffic, and of great import ance to the whoi! countiy.

Judicious exercise and nutriment ar; food fnr the physical man. Science and literature sa tiate the lnlellcet the religious. principle feeds the soul. Without a soul, developed lit har mony with the moral law, man Is the inotf dan genius and vicious of animals. lSecause freed from moral restraint, be is endowed v.

The former Is stoical am! euld-the l.-.tt r is energetic and warm. Jleaseu pi y doubt; It may speculate ; il liny evolve thu laws and principles that control the actions ot nica ar:d the phenomena of nature. It cannot create. Scientific thought may weave from a multitude of events the fral.rio of history; il may ponder upon Its own pow-irs and call that pondering philosophy, llut sjinpathy and cooducss come from i lie emotional element ot our nature, l'oetrv, tlie Uwtjtuujc of the tout, is an emanation of that simpler attribute of man, the imagination Cack of this, aiding ia Its bettir development and creating for It, a responsive tendency in the common mind, must be an exalted moral nature. Tin's is the source from whence issue the purest motives and noblest seii'imcnts of man - the centre where burns the light ilivtm: where glows the spark celestial. The supreme function of the Imagination, is to create perfect standards ot excellence, by which exbtin; things are lompared and actions estimated. As man, to attain his highest good, must hare ona supreme end to which all ethers are subservi ent, so (he imagination, to reach the sum mit of its achievement, must hold In view, one supreme and perfect ideal, to which all thing' arc referred ; by which nil actions are estimated. The only power to cieatea supreme ami last ing ideal Is the religious principle. The relig ion ot to-day, furnishing Hie sublime ideal of all perfection of iminite power and goodnes has far 2000 years satisfied the deepest longing! of the soul. Life is exalted and embullished as It striv es to attain an ideal goodness. Man Is a slave to ideals, lie ever strives, but never at tains the perfect. Iiis life is an exemplilleatlon of lits thoughts. His countenance bears marks of their impress. Hence we shuuld seek a per fect ideal for a model as an exemplary life. Christ Is the only perfect standard. He com bines the good, the true, and the beautiful. In llliu we find all that Is worthy uf imit:it!oti-el ements productive of a sublime and perfect be ing. His precepts are a beneflcient force among men: to determine modes of life anil principles f action. Skepticism and agnosticism lend to weaken n.aii'a faith in this religions ideal, by denying that which constitutes Us es sence. Modern thought Is doing a pernicious work when It hardens the heart, blots nut Hie creative power, and destroys all lofty senti ment. These arc the Influences we. as teach ers, must strive to counteract by stimulating faith: by planting, in the fender conscience of the young, seeds of molality, which witl grow and crowd out the error and evil that will flint lodgment there. Tills silent vigil-conscience sitting enthron ed Iu man's nature, regulates and sways the whole mental current. It purifies thought, di rects sentiment, aud marks rut a judicious course of action. Dethrone this faithful sentl net and the whole moral nature runs at ran- dom; the soul becomes dead to the admoni tions of danger; the animal passions and Ua;T instincts get possession of the inner being and man fa'ls into vice, criminality and sin. In a scared and feeble conscience, nestles the germs eif our distempered civilization. From this emanate most the evils Ihat Infest the body social to-day. To divert these evil tendencies and develop that liigier nature Is the mission of philanthropy the object of teaching. Through the teacher, the state hopes to breathe morality into the souls of thv young. When we realize the enormity e-f our trust when we contemplate the magnitude of evil emanating from a depraved moral nature ; and when we comprehend the silent force of iuflu nice effecting aud moving all within Us Held, "The Moral l'hase of Teaching" becomes ap parent and presses fr consideration- The State t-f Missouri has to-day more than 12,000 teachers rumbling the character of her future citizens. Moving In lice under their guidance and care are more than SOO.UoO pupils a vast army marching from innocent child hood to man and womanhood, ab.-orling ele ments of growth and decay from their snrrouii ding and engrailing them Into their moral, so cial and mental being. Do they draw- their nourishment frr.m whole some sources? Is the fountain, at which Inno cent childhood drinks, pure? Are we develop ing their three fold nature in harmony? In: portant questions, these, to which every con scientious teacher should address himself. A gentle exercise of the imagination can easily forecast th future. The seeds we are now- sowing will soin ripen into their legitimate fruits. Within ten or fifteen years a majority of the piii:l,noiv umlerjour charge, will engage in the active pursuits of life. Within twenty years the present generation w ill pass off the stage of action and commit the affairs of State and bus iness to the care and keeping of new hands.
