The squirrels bark, but the quail keep still,

A SEKMON PREACHED AT ST JOHN S

REV O. O. WRIGHT.
Luke li : 13, 14, 15, "Anil one ol the company
until unto him, Master, speak to my brother,
that he divide the inheritance with me.
And lie said unto him, man, who made me
a Judge, or a divider over you?
And he said unto them, take heed and be

We are In the midst of a great social
and Industrial revolution. We have come
to a crisis marked with violence, destruc
tion and the shedding of blood. The
wheels of industry stand idly waiting, or
halting as between two opinions ; the
messengers of commerce linger to watch
our nails or legislation; tne ominous
murmur of discontent goes up from the
broken and distracted ranks of labor;
and fear and doubt have seized upon all,
while we look about us for some su.e
ground of confidence to hope for a
brighter future. I speak in particular of
our own country, tnougo in a general
sense the whole civilized world is"afl'ect-
ed by similar conditions. Indeed, it
seems as though Christendom itself is ap
proaching the culmination, or end of one
great period of spiritual progress and
that another seal of the Divine Apoca
lypse is soon to be broken. Let us not
think of the situation as simply involving
the conflict of capital and labor and
questions of law and order. The yues
tions of the day have to do with princi
ples which are of eternal significance.
They are questions which are of deep
concern to church and state and involve
the most vital relations of society and
government. Indeed we may well look
upon the events of these &-t days as
way-marks in the evolution of the King
dom of God among men. II becomes us
then as Christian citizens to enquire
most earnestly what these thiDgs mean;
and to ask ourselves most seriously what
is our duty as factors of the government
and as member s of Christ.
THERE ARE PROPHETS
of gociecv has laid upon us. There are
better principles and methods which
must be applied to the production of the
necessities of this life. There are sweet
er and nobler relations of the social and
industrial life which must be magnified
and made common and effectual among
the people. There is a holier spirit of
love and fellowship and co-operation
which must prevail, that all sorts and
conditions of men may rejoice together
as the children of our common Father
who cares for us all. We cannot and we
must not be unmindful of this call of
God which is sounding so loud and con
tinually in our ears. What have ve to
do about it? All that we can do about
it according to the measure of our ability
and our responsibility as citizens of the
world, as factors of the government in
our own country, and as members ol the
body of Christ and heirs of the Kingdom
What does this present state of con
flict and confusion in the social and in
dustrial woild mean to us who are
churchmen and citizens of the common'
wealth in which we live?

who will tell jou that these are the signs
of the coming end of the world. That
the world Is to grow worse and worse
with conflict and confusion of evil in
every form, until it ends in its own de.
struction. That the few who shall be
elect and saved shall be snatched as it
were from the universal wreck and ruin.
There are good people who doubtless be
lieve that we are fast coming to such a
dire crisis. I am not one of them. I be
lieve that in general the world is always
growing better, ana tnat tne Kingdom
of Heaven is making progress among the
children of men. No doubt that the
highest conditions of our improvement
are oiten involved in some temporary
conflict and conf UBion of interests. We
may go wrong in our blindness and have
to retrace our steps; we learn wisdom by
bitter experience; we are wayward and
selfish, and bring evils upon us by our
sinful conduct; but on the whole we
know that the history of the world
proves that we have gone forward in the
grand march of our common humanity;
and that what has been is the earnest of
what shall be in the evolution of the
divine plans of the earth and man.
Temporary disorder is often but the
necessary preparation for some great im
provement. As when a factory shuts
down to make repairs, or put in new
machinery, or to Introduce a better sys
tem of doing the work ; or to undertake
the manufacture of other and better
It would be but a narrow and stupid
mind which would infer from the con
fusion and conflict of Interests incident
to such repairs and changes that busi
ns8 was ruined and that the factory was
going to destruction. The progress of
the world seldom continues long in one
unbroken line. And the same Is true
whether of the business world, the scien
tific world or the moral or spiritual life
of men. The great movements of the
ages are intermittent and changeable
like the waves of beat and cold and the
currents of the ocean. Man proposes
but God disposes. Tides of emigration
rise and the nations of the east flood the
west ; or the Hordes of the north are
poured upon the lands of the south mak
lugiew tribes and states and people and
But the Lord who made them all hath
set the bounds of their habitation and
placed a limit and a check upon all their
plans, ?lfor the wrath of man worketh
not the righteousness of God." Nations
come and go and empires rise and fall
but the progress of the Kingdom of
Heaven flows on forever. As we go back
over the pages of history we trace- the
progress of the social and industrial life
of our race through the various stages
and conditions which in general we have
called savage, barbarous, half -civilized
and civilized. So when we come to the
last and highest stage of development we
can discern certain lines of progress in
the civilized and Christianized periods of
our history. We have reached a point
In this modern method of living at which
the Ijord of the vineyard has called a halt
upon our labors. The social machinery
kf the world is out of order and needs
must be put In repair and readjusted
The rules and regulations of the great
work-shop of the world need to be re
vised. We need to do better work in
of such social discontent and industrial
warfare? There are doubtless numerous
minor causes which have contributed to
bring about the present state of our
country. The unrestricted Hood of emi
gration has brought us too many aliens
who are ignorant, and vicious, idle, in
capable of self-control, and in spirit at
war with all society and government
Socialism and anarchism are abroad and
in this land of free speech every license
of abuse U allowed even to the subvert
ing of every principle of law and order
without which there can be no liberty
nor safe ty to any. The love of power
and the abuse of social freedom have
contributed largely to produce this pre
sent confusion which prevails in this
land. The multitude is drunk with the
excess of liberty, and in the madness of
mob rule the workingman has thrown
away the choicest gift of his manhood

capitalist, the laborer has signed away
his personal liberties and made himself a
traitor to his country, and trampled up
on the inalienable rights of men to "life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
In a land of real liberty the freedom of
one must be the freedom of all. Capital
must be free and labor must be free.
And when conflict becomes inevitable the
fight must be free also, else our govern
ment ceases to govern, and liberty be
comes anarchy and social and industrial
revolution becomes a war of conflicting
interest which destroy each other. If
the rights of property cannot be protect
edand made secure to the capitalist what
power is there left to which the laborer
can look for the security of his own
natural rights and personal safety? And
so it is that "They that take the sword
shall perish with the sword." The
greed of gain ij another prolific source
This new continent rich with all its
natural resources has tempted the for
tune seeker of every land. Marvelous
wealth has been made in a short period
of time and many men have made haste
to be rich. Millionaires have multiplied
with surprising rapidity. Where many
are rich many must be poor. There is
only so much at best and what one has
is not free to another. Luxury and idle-
neas follow in the wake of fortune.
clamor of the idle and covetous nnd
It takes little wisdom to discern how
futile would be the indiscriminate divi
sion of the world's goods in response to
the war-cry of the socialist and anarchist.
The equal division of the wealth of the
world would leave the whole world poor,
with the certain prospectof its becoming
speedily poorer. Man must labor or he
cannot eat. : Man must toil or become
naked and homeless and without an abid
ing place. . So sure as men do labor there
will be wealth and means of comfort, and
in the nature of the case some will have
more than others, and of different kinds.
Men were made to live together in rela
tions of dependence and In mutual love
as brethren. This is the divine law and
eternal plan ot society ; and we must all
learn to live In harmony with the law of
divine love. "And be said unto him.
Man, who made me a judge, or a divider
over you." borne think the church
might, if it only would, settle all these
vexed questions of society. But what is
the Church Militant but these same peo
ple, in the world, capitalists and laborers,
rich and poor, good and bad, striving
together as they are for life and liberty
and in the pursuit of happiness ! What
more or better can the church do than
to hold up the divine ideal which must
be found in actual love to God and love
to man In all the relations of life?
Some think the state has only to make
laws to regulate all the conflicting inter
est of the industrial world. But what is
the state but these same people whose

A HASD TIMES OPP0ETUHITT.
WEALTH TO THE WISE
and good means the promotion of learn
ing aDd virtue and beneficence of every
kind ; but to the ignorant and selfish il
means indolence, vice and degradation.
Money is such a universal power, for
good, or for evil, that it i3 no wonder
men covet it. The wonderful material
developments of this continent, coupled
with our free institutions and popular
government has produced an excessive
ly artificial and unscientific phase of
civilization. We are miseducated as to
the true value of wealth ; and our sensi
bilities are cultivated beyond the canons
of good taste and the ability to enjoy the
good things of this life. We are taught
to be discontented by our false Ideas of
life which we are made to feel "consist-
eth in the abundance of the things we
possess." The leisure of wealth tends
to idleness and the love of luxury and
the craving of worldly pleasures. And
so wealth tends to create classes. There
are the rich classes and Che middle classes
and the poor classes ; for rich and poor
are relative terms. It is not only a ques
tion of how rich, but if poor, how poor?
The rich are proud of their privileges if
not of their riches, and do not care for
the poor. The poor are envious of the
rich and would like to divide the spoils
with them ; in fact, the poor would like
to be rich too, and it would be difficult
to decide in which class of people wealth-
wise there is most covetousness and
pride of life. One thing however is cer
tain this age is most dangerously affect
ed with moneymania. The worship Qf
Mammon Is the most conspicious idola
try of the modern world. Family, fame,
culture and character are so often sacri
fied on the altar of this great god of the
world that we almost cease to wonder
The waste of the good gifts of this
world which is due to excess of luxury,
and idleness and vice and crime is also a
large factor in the problem before us. It
is an important item in all our economies,
social, industrial, political and religious.
Enough of the products of the earth are
not only wasted but used to pervert and
degrade the life of man, to feed all the
hungry, and educate all the illiterate and
care for all the unfortunate In the world.
One other consideration must come in to
this account ; the government itself, in
this country, has become the prey of the
of the people who are supposed to make
it what it is. Finally, we may sum up
the whole case In this one word : Selfish
ness, -v Greedy selfishness. 1 Not self-in
terest wisely understood, but blind, un
reasonable greed. . Whether capital or
labor, church or state, in private or in
public life the root of the whole matter
is selfishness. We are simply reaping
that which we have sown. The day of
reckoning has come. Capital is arrogant,
labor is insolent. People love them
selves. Competition in getting is not
followed by competition to giving. The
man who in any way cheats his fellow-
men injures himself in the end. . The law
of love is the universal law of life.
"And one of the company said unto him,
Master, epeak to my brother that he
divide the inheritance with me." This is
the appeal which we heat on every side
WHAT THE CITIZENS OF THE STATE
make it or permit it to be made. What
more can the state do than to insist that
each aud all shall be obedient in mutual
love to the natural law of life which
gives to each man the largest liberty con
sistent with the highest welfare of all,
each looking not on bis own things alone
but also upon the things of others as
sacred, the strong bearing the burdens
of the weak and the weak showing defer
ence for the strong. Law may do some
thing to restrain the selfish and teach the
ignorant and relieve the indigent ; but
what the Lord of heaven and earth means
is that men chall learn to do all such
things of their own will, out of love to
God and becau-e they do love their
neighbor as themselves. The rich may
be selfish but the poor may be even more
selfish. The capitalist may be tyranni
cal ; but it has been proved that the
laborer may become equally, or even
The millionaire may be extravagant
and wasteful, the poor man may be even
more prodigal and reckless. When men
have learned to live by the spirit of the
golden rule the great social and indus
trial questions of the world will have
beeu solved by the divine law of love
which in the temporal affairs of life is co
operation. "And be said unto them,
Take heed and beware of covetousness
for a man's life consistest not in the
abundance of the things which he
possesseth." Things we need; the Lord
knows that, and we have His promise of
the necessary things; but when we have
so degraded ourselves that we put the
things of this life in place of the
DIVINE LAW OF LOVE
which is life itself, then we need and de
serve to suffer the consequences of our
blindness and folly. Let us heed the
solemn warning of the church, "Not to
covet nor desire other men's good ; but
to learn and labor truly to get mine own
living, and to do my duty in that state
of life unto which it shall please God to
Live Farm Topics.
WHAT FOOLS THESE MORTALS BE.
There is nothing very funny about a
season like the present," said a sensible
and active farmer recently in my hearing
The drouth is terrible, and its effects
on the profits of the dairy are counted
by the millions of dollars of loss.
Where are dairymen coming out if they
persist in running thejrisk of drought and
refusing to prepare for emergency with
an abundant supply of soiling crops?
Compare the dairies of farmers having
no fodder corn to feed with those who
feed this succulent ration regularly and
thus help out the burned pastures
There is all the difference between milk
and no milk, returns and no returns
And now while miiK and butter are
bringing better prices, those who have
nothing to feed but bought foods are in
a discouraging spot. They have stood
the period of abundant milk and . low
prices when they could make nothing
and are now just as badly fixed or worse
Doesn't it seem as if people who have
been caught so once would learn a les
son and never, be cornered so again?
But they wont. Next year some of us
will be in jnst the same unprofitable cli
max. if the raising or fodder crops
were risky or difficult or almost impose!
ble or as hard to do as the raising of
money It might not be expected of all
farmers, but since it is the easiest thing
in the world it is a great marvel that so
few should follow it regularly and sys
tematically, There might be some palll
ation if.tbe crops raised for feeding green
were wasted one year in four because a
wet season made the pastures so good
that soiling was unnecessary, but such
crops may be cured and housed for winter
un variably and with very little trouble.
In cold weather they come in right, or
may be sold readily. To have a barn
half full of stover at turning out time is
never considered anything worse than
an indication of an extra good farmer.
Then wnat is tne matter with 90 per
cent of us? Dont ve want returns from
our farms?; It has o this appearance
And stiii the improvements remaining
forever, like the shoes of the shoemaker's
family, unmade, give the lie to this con
elusion. Done we know when to sow
and plant? Perhaps we forget adversl
ty in times of prosperity. But now
while under the lash let us get to work
and se-if we cannot atone this season,
yes, this very season for a short fodder
"But the" earth is too dry and hard to
plow now'' says somebody
Well, there are the oat stubbles and
the "early potato ground
Prices are low for everything as well
as farm produce, and complaint will not
make them any higher, says the Farm
Journal. Men in every department of
enterprise are forced to barely exist,
and it is a provetb among merchants
that if we can make both ends meet
until the times improve, we are fortu
nate. If butter, wheat, veal, potatoes
and every other farm product sell for
25 to 50 per cent, less than in
recent years, we must make the best of
it, and like the merchants, look on the
bright side and keep hope alive in our
hearts. Remember that "the darkest
night has a dawning." It is character
istic of American life that we have downs
and ups in finances, and doubtless there
will be opportunity in coming years to
make up ground lost in the present.
Meanwhile it h wise policy to make prep
aration when we shall be able to do bus
iness profitably. It stands us In band
as progressive and thrifty farmers and
dairymen to put our land, buildiags and
materials for production, like imple
ments, rolling stock and fertilizers, in
the veiy best condition, and to get ready
for prosperity when her ship sails this
way. As a signal instance of what may
be done when the raising and market
ing of products is at a standstill, let us
consider the situation on many a farm
where milk making for market has been
the soie occupation for a decade or
more. "We started in here," says a
young daityuian of my aquaintance,
half a dozen years ago to ship milk.
The entire neighborhood went into it,
and it seemed like u first-el us departure.
We had all prime, young, working
dairies, which we had raised ourselves,
and we started in with the auspicious
beginning which a most excellent prev
ious preparation permitted. Milk was
worth so much we couid not afford to
raise calves and after a few years we
found ourselves hampered with cows
pa9t their prime, and, later, old cuw-, or
with the frequent necessity of driving
for miles, and spending mouey tot
younger cows. What seemed to be the
best thing in the world so far as income
was concerned has proved to have two
sides to it, and, had we continued to
make butter and cheese and raise our
own cows, I am inclined to believe we
would be more prosperous to-day than
we are." Here's a little word picture,
drawn by a thinking young man, an
illustration which means considerable.
It portrays a situation of affairs which is
very common throughout many regions
within a radius of 50 to 100 miles about
most large towns and cities.
What opportunities does the present
offer? It offers to me the chance to
sell less milk while low prices continue,
and raise more cows, for while I would
have to pay from $40 to $60 per head
by-and-by when I really want them, if
I raise more than enough to fill my re
quirements they will be readily saleable
at good prices to my immediate neigh
bors who would buy and take them
away. The nnanciai situation gives me
the opportunity to raise more fodder
for these young animals, and less wheat
and potatoes for market while prices
are below par. Instead of carrying on
at a loss some other branches of work
which commonly pay a fair profit, the
boys and our hired men are going to
produce enough of the necessities for
home use, fill up the barns, and spend
the balance of the time repairing, re-
shingling, painting, etc. A little econ
omy pointed out by a neighbor this
morning is well worth consideration:
When the paint on a building begins to
look as if it would soon begin to lose its
best appearance, it should be taken
firmly in hand and re-coated with heavy
boiled oil. A single application of this
kind made in time will save two coats
of paint. A little delay when the paint
has begun to rub and wash will leave
the buildings with a shabby appearance,
and soon demand a priming coat,
followed by a surface coat. Oil is cheap,
and we shall put on some as soon as
fall raina have the dust. :
