Al Unity church yesterday morning
Rev. W. K. Coueland i reaclted the fol
lowing illfcour-o suggested by llio recent
notion of the Nebraska Humane ociety :
In "pcnkiiiK of animals as brothers , I
nni not without warrant from the words
of oni ! . who lias over been accounted by
tlut church as u .saint , and one of the
sweetest , intrust , KuntliM , most Christ-
like of nil the saints of tin ; ( Catholic
church , I rnfur to Saint Francis D'Asstsi
who always called the animals his
brothers and not infrcqiieiitl.v talked to
them us though they could understand
( tenuous. What was allowable ami to be
commended in St. Francis may bo im
itated by llio.M ! who lay no claim to saint-
liuess. Indeed tlio gentle saint but spoke
the truth when he called animals his
brothers , as I hope to be able to prove to
. you this iiioniiiiir.
The meeting of llio Nebraska Humane
society held last week in this city was no
common occasion , it marked a threat .step
forward , greater than the promoters of
the movement wore aware. Tito protest
against ernclly to animals and children
so eloquently expressed by onr leading
citizens is very .significant and is worthy
of furnishing a topio for a Sunday ser
mon , It marks the beginning of a higher
and bolter life for our eity and its results
will have a deeper ell'eet than the speakers
dreamed , not only securing for our dumb
brothers greater h.ippincss but inaugur
ating a more peaceful state of society
and a diminution of sclllslmess.
It is humanitarian , it is al.so divine
Tlie immediate and plain result we can
all see.Vo shall witness the decrease
and final end of these scones of cruelly
too common on our streets , and which I
will not .say brnt.ili/.c , the word should
never be used again , for the men who
abuse their dumb servants without whom ,
us has well been said , "Civilisation were
Impossible. " are greater brutes than the
animals not brutalize , but duiiionixo ,
those who witness them. Ue can have
our coal delivered without the common
cruelty to the horse and mules who draw
the load. Wo can have our nouses built
without the overloading of the boasts who
help in the erection.Vo can ride in the
horse cars without shuddering as two
small mules are compelled to draw a
heavy load of able-bodied men and
women belter able to walk than the poor
creatures are lo draw them , and without
being tortured as unfeeling men attempt
to break in to the unaccustomed work
liooi wild animals recently deprived of
their liberty on the plains. We shall see
no more ol these cenos so agonizing lo
men and women in whom Ihoro yet re-
nir.inssome sensibility to the woes of
those who cannot appeal for justice in
words that all can understand , though to
sonic their language is easy to interpret ,
for by their shuddering groans ami other
bigns they protest against the cruelty
practiced upon them.
We shall have gradually growing up
among us a grealer regard for Hie righls
of both animals and children , for Ihc
people under the education given by the
Immune society will learn that both of
these classes have rights. As another
has said , there was a time when only
kings and nobles had rights , a state of
society Httll existing in some countries.
There was a time when only white men
had righls.inthiseounlry. That timeonded
when llio great martyr Lincoln signed
magna eharta which gave the rights to
the black man. Now il is declared that
animals and children have rights- There
are other classes in the community do-
preived of their rights. The insane , the
fceble-m uuletl and above all others the
criminals are deprived of llieir righls ,
but the wrong has been delected and a
betler day has begun for these poor
brothers and sisters menially diseased.
Others are deprived o'f their rights , but
tliov can speak in language which all can
understand and Ihey will soon obtain
what they demand. Animals and
children cannot protest in words nor
have they Hie power to enforce Ihoir pro
test , so it is the last step toward a bettor
lite where others proto.st for them. It is
a grand thing tor humanity to admit
that those dependent on man''s strength
and wisdom have rights.
When young and old lunrn that they
cannot give vent to their cruelty in cut'-
ling and beating children , in kicking and
pounding animals , and have none on
whom they can materialize in oaths and
blows their auger : they will learn what
.IcMis has been trying to teach the world
for more than eighteen centuries , that
anger and revenge and violence have no
place in the life of sons and daughters of
( tod. Cruelty to the helpless has done
mush to render war possible and to fos
ter the earnal in man. This repressed
and there cannot fail to result a vast im
provement in society. Prevention of
cruelty to the helpless means peace and
genllene.ss , meansthocomingof the king
dom of ( iod upon the earth.
The general opinion is that the move
ment is the rcniill of centuries of Chris
tian leaching. Hut here a great mistake
is made. Indirectly the gentleness , meek
ness and humility of , ) CMIS has had some
nlVci't in promoting this grand reform ,
but the uprising in favor of love and
Kindness to animals comes diroetly from
heathen lauds. While Urn missionary of-
fort.s ot thu Christian church have helped
the heathen , they in turn have helped us.
While the missionaries have carried lighl
to India , Ihey have brought light home ,
and one term of the light from heathen
dom Is the revelation that animals have
rights. The missionaries found in the Ori
ent , hospitals fur sick animals , a general
regard tor the comfort of our dumb
brothers and a strict application to the
animal world of the command "Thou
shalt not kill. " They found a people
gentle , peaceful and entirely opposed to
violence , These reports , appearing in
print , were read by many , and the con
viction entered the minds of .some lhat
we needed a change in the treatment of
our dumb servants. More than that
\Vhilo \ the missionaries carried our bible
to the heathens they brought back lo us
thu heathen bible , \ \ la-rein wo find it
written " 'llio heartless one , who would
carelessly trample on : \ worm lhat crawls
upon the earth is daikly alienate from
liodl" "Multiply domestic animals ,
nourish thorn , trout them gently. " "Ho
human to ttuimaU , even lo insects , " O
man , there is no kind of beast on the
earth nor any fowl which Hies with
wings , but thu same is a people unto
yourselves. . "Ho who injures aiiv living
creature does it unto ( Soil. " These ex
tracts are from llio eawd book of. the
Persians , Arabians , the Hindoos ami tii *
Chinese , lluddhn , Toroastu. 'Jonfuoius
nnd .Mahomet spoke tlio * ; , wonjS ) muj Wo
lliul them too ui mose mobt ancient of
snored writings , the Vedas In Kgypt
tito kindly care for animals was earned
lo u great extreme and they were oven
worshipped. So we tind thu heathen be
fore the time of Jesus practicing for
various reasons kindness to animals.
In some respects it is almost an Injury
to thu ( uglier llfo , that wo have the Old
Testament. For though Solomon wrote
"A religious man reg.irduththu life of his-
beaM" uiul Mo-ses 'Thou hbalt not nuu'/lo
thu'ox which Iri-uUotli out the gram. "
Yet the custom of animal sacritiee. ' which
uven Jesus did pot condom , when ho
thn who miulo of the temple
a house of merchandize , tended to foster
cruelty to animals , rendered the people
familiar with the shcddintr of blood and
indirectly made men cruel to animal , nnd
children. And the too common blood
theology associating human redemption
with crncltv lo man has a similar efleet.
Nor do we feel in the sacred book of
Christendom any direct command for
bidding such cruelty , while the heathen
sacred book % have ninny such commands ,
putting in vcrv ulaln terms min's duty
to his dumb brothers. Wo can easily
understand why Jesus said nothing
against the sacrifice of animals , because
the gospel abolished all such sacrilico
and taught that ( iod loved his children.
In another way the Old Testament has
hindered a due reirard for the rights of
animals. For it teaches that ( Sod created
man as the lord of creation and all other
things on the earth as his .servants and
for his u e , which has given a semblance
of support for cruelty to animals and
eiiildren as belonging to man. though the
higher law of the gospel in its most extended -
tended sense commands love and mercy.
The fact is that the animal world no more
than the vegetable world was created for
man. It was created for itself and was
perfect of its kind , and man has no
ownership over it.
So then , this movement for humanity
to the animal \\orld , copying what has
been the common practice among the
heathen , and commanded to them by pas
sages from what they believe to be llieir
sacred books , will ( end to enlarge our
views of inspiration , and those engaged
in it cannot dismiss with contempt as
senseless babble the books of the Orient ,
which o\plicilly command kindness and
consideration to our dumb servants.
However we may regard the theology of
these bibles or llio morality commended ,
we cannot but accept as the voice of ( iod
the teaching about animals , even though
that be primarily based on the idea of the
transmigration of ouls.
He who considers the Supreme Spirit as
prevades all beings cannot view with
contempt any creature whatsoever sav
the Veda's and hero we reach llio nelli
of the matter , here we arc taught that the
animals are our brothers because Uod
dwells in them as in us. ( iod made of
one blood all the nations of the earth
writes the apostle , and so too , ( iod made
of one spirit all things that hye on the
earlh , and the Chinese sago well says ,
harm not oven plants or trees. What is
this life principle the grandest and most
mysterious thing in lite universe 'i What
but ( ioil , and wo u cd to respect this all
pervading spirit. 1 know not whether
animals have souls , though what is the
soul but llio spirit of God dwelling in
finite form ; but I do know that animals
have minds , my dog reasons , ho under
stands the inflections of my voice , ho
plainly shows his love for me. 1 know
not lhat man has a soul which will en
dure llio change called death , though 1
believe it. And it seems to me that the
future life would laek a great joy if Ihc
animal world were not represented.
May not llio untutored savage who ex
pects to find the favorite pony in the
Happy Hunting Grounds have a higher
philosophy than the Christian \vho ex
pects to dwell in a city. For my part 1
am not so intieh in love with Hits city as
to wish to spend the whole future in a ,
walled town.
Hut lo come down to the practical be
fore 1 weary your patience. What can
wo do in the mutterI\pttoenlargo on the
duty of joining the society , of reporting
cases of cruelly to animals and children ,
of remonstrating with the cruel. We
can do two things : Form in our Sunday
school a Hand ol Mercy and educate the
children to know thai the animals are
our brothers ; that their lito is derived
from God ; that they have righls , and per
haps extend the movement until , as in
Cincinnati and some oilier cities , wo have
bands oi mercy in our public schools.
And in your homes give practical teach
ing on llns important subject. A home ,
it has always scorned to me , should have
some pets , whether they bo birds , or cats ,
or dogs 1 do not speak of the horses , be
cause wo all cannot have horses. Hut we
can have the others , and to have them
and teacli the children to love them , niul
all like them is most desirable. Object
teaching has boon proved to bo most
effective with small children , and how
can we bettor inculcate kindness to ani
mals than by having them in our homes
and lunching all the inmates to respect
llieir righls ? I am , as you know ,
an ardent advocate of teaching Iho-
elegy and morality in the homo. Heller
than in church or in public school can
we learn to love God and man in the
homo. Whoever learns the substance of
the gospels in the homo circle will prac
tice these lofty lessons abroad. If in the
homo wo arc to love ( Sod in man , so there
too should wo learn to love God in the
animal. Hero is a work that all can do ,
whether they belong to the humane so
ciety or not. The lessons of Jove to the
annual world learned in the home will
not fail to react upon the human world
and we shall learn to 'ove ' all which God
lias made , and to give the greatest meas
ure of love to the most helpless and these
least able to recompense us for our all'ec-
lion , thus learning to subdue our great
enemy , selfishness. So the humane so-
ciotv becomes a religious organization
leaning us up from love to the animal
world to love for humanity , from respect
ing the rights of animals to respecting
the rights of humans , and thus leading
us to crucify self , nnd thus to practice llio
highest lesson ot the gospel. So 1 come
back to my starling point , that the inaug
uration of a humane society means in
Omaha a more exalted and comprehen
sive notion of what ' religion means , a les
son which wo'all need to learn and to
practice.

Itcv. W. ,1 , lliirslin'H Sermon tit tlio
KirM I'riiSlo'tcrlnn Church.
Rev , W. J. Harsha delivered an excel
lent sermon lo agood audience last night ,
at the Fir.st I'rcsbytcrinn church on
Dodge street , on llio subject of shifting
our responsibility for sins , taking for his
text. Gen. , III.18 : "And the Lord ( Sod
said unto the woman what is this thou
hast done ? And the woman said , The
serpent beguiled mo ami 1 did eat. "
One of the deepest convictions in the
human heart is that man cannot
bear his sins alone. To satisfy * this con
viction ( iod sent forth Ids own son not to
help us bear our sins , but lo bear them
all himself. .Men do not accept Christ's '
oiler as they ought , but wo find a uni-
versitl disposition , however , for people
lo shift llio responsibility for their mis
doings on others. Jt was in this way
Adam laid the blame for his sin on Kve ,
and Kvo again on the serpent and when
once death stares us in the face wo are
the most eager of all for some power lo
relieve us of the burden of onr sins.
Circumstances alter cases , but they
never did and never can alter moral re
sponsibility. One young mar. says , "I
would bo a chrislian if my circumstances
were dill'eront.1' lint surroundings cannot
bo pleaded ooforo God as an excuse for
notdolmr our duly. The heathen it is
said sliall receive few stripes because
they have little light , but wo in this
Christian land cannot plontl tlio same ex
emption. Others say other people prac
tice frauds , they use impoifect measures
thov mark their goods dishonestly , Hut
God hns said to us , "Thou shalt not fol
low the multitude. " Another defense
oll'ercd for sin is hereditary tendency.
The spmifccr said if these was anyone
ono for whom ho had sympathy
it was that unfortunate who was barn
with an evil appetite inherited from a
sinful ancestor. Ho was not disposed to
be harsh wilh him , Others , again , say
Ihey would bo Christians if they could
have seen the miracles performed by
( . hrist and. his disciples. Hul Chnst said
the .blessing was for those , who , having
uot socuyct believe , Some , ujjain , nle\d \
their besetting sins nnd declare their
willingness to give tip all cl o , but say
there is one pet habit they cannot re
linquish. Hut no man has any right to n
besetting sin , and ( Sod will visit the pen
alty upon him if hovill not reform. An
other class try to escape their responsi
bility for the fact that they do not obey
Christ by saying the season is not lit ;
they will do their duty at some other time.
Hut the bible tells of those who defer the
performance of their duty to some more
more convenient season.
Kvcry time a man sins he sins bychoico.
God has given us all a free will and Ho
will hold us responsible for tlto use wo
make of it. Prescolt , the historian , and
Wilson , the scientist , had diflicultics to
overcome. Milton's blindness , 1'nscal's
temper , IVnelon's reticence , were all
overcome , and these men became stars In
the galaxy of greatness. Just In proportion
tion as our eoullietis severe will our" re
ward be great. As the timber for the
great masts of the ships arc sought in the
wild and rugged regions of the north , and
the gold down where the lire has been
burning and the dross is burned away , so
will our lives be grand and noble by
reason of the struggles wo go through
and the adversities wo overcome.
There i n way by which we may over
come the most adverse circumstances.
That is by availing ourselves of the pro-
YIMOUS ( jed has made for us. There is a
bridge between this world and the next
founded on God's providence and grace ,
and when life's ' battle is hard and licrcc
we should remember that God is watting
to receive us on the other side if wo will
follow the path he has laid out for us.
YOUNG .31KN AND OHKISTIAN1TY.
The Iiast of Itev. llctulorson'M Course
ofljccturcn to YountjMcii.
At the North I'resbytertliin church last
nljrht , the pastor , Uev. W. H. Hender
son , preached the last of his course of
lectures to young men. His theme was
' The Young Man and Christianity , "
from thu text found in the ninth verso
of ono hundred and nineteenth Psalms :
" \Vhero withal shall a young man
cleanse his way ? by taking heed thereto
according to thy word. " The following
is a brief outline of the lecture :
The celebrated John H. Gottgh closed
his remarkable career with an utterance
which embodied the accumulated wisdom
of his checkered and useful experience :
"young men , make your record clean.1'
Like apples of gold in pictures of silver ,
it was a word fitly spoken. No greater
question can be considered by a young
man than this. How can I make my life
clean , pure , noble ? The problem , in
deed , which presents itself for solution is ,
How to begin life's career aright , how al
ways to bo able in the midst of the con-
Hiding issues and diverse influences with
which every busy life is crowded to rec-
oni7.o and choose and act up to the riuht ,
and how to maintain this Hue of con
duct , until perfection is finally reached
and manhood is crowned with heaven's
diadem of honor. Wo are not left to
grope in the dark for a satisfactory and
comprehensive answer to questions like
these. The bible is profitable for instruc
tion at every period of man's caieer , and
is full of wisest counsel for every phase
of his experience. Christ stands in the
forefront of bible teaching conspicuous
as our Savior and exemiSIar. Hy Him ,
truth and grace come in all their full-
ne.s for the salvation of the per
ishing , and in Him we have the eomplet-
est illustration of all that is excellent
aiuJ lovely and of good report. Christ
ianity , therefore , possesses supreme
value for every young man , and it is
manifest that it will be immensely help
ful to him in grappling with the duties
and perils of this present life.
_ It exalts and ennobles the character of
life. A poet lias said :
"Unless above himself he can
Krcct hnnsell , how poor a thing is man. "
Christianity will enable him to do thK
The very first fact which confronts a
young man when he looks at himself in
the mirror of divine truth is the presence
and the working of .sin in his heart. It
may not appear in a degrading aspect ,
but in general intent is to shade and
direct the life on the lower plane of a
merely soliish and worldly career. Its
aim is to shut the light of God out of the
soul , and to enclose all thought and
energy within the narrow horizon of self
ishness. Of course this is a low view of
life , but it is just such a life as is led by
myriads of our fellow men. Abo\fo or
around self they rarely ever look. It has
been well .said that "no life can bo low
where great ends are followed. " A
young man's life will bo a true , generous
and noble one if ho makes it lite buttled
purpose ami endeavor to live for Christ
and the advancement pi his cause. When
God says , "My son , give mo thy heart , "
it is that He may place in his bobom a
bettor , larger and more generous heart.
Christianity imparts symmetry of char
acter. It makes a man lust
kind , honest , truthful , conscien
tious and charitable in his
human relations , and towards God it
makes him reverential and obedient. It
is no easy ta k to possess and exemplify
these virtues. Their attainment ought to
be made the distinct aim and endeavor of
' very young man. Let him turn to the
first chapter of the second epistle of
Peter , the fifth , sixth ami seventh verses ,
commit them to memory , search out all
lhat the bible has to sfy ; in the way of
precept and example about each virtue ,
and then endeavor by God'.s help to put
each one into practice. Such a process ,
daily Kept up , will strengthen ami ele
vate his character and give it symmetry
anil power.
Christianity promises a heaven of ever
lasting happiness and glory to oyery
young man who will accept u'f Christ as
Ills Saviour and conform his life to the
teachings of the biblu. This is a hope
and a prospect which imparts vlsior and
joy to the heart ot a Christian. Iti-llgion
is not a gloomy affair. The Christian has
sources of joy which are higher and in
finitely inoro substantial and lasting than
this world can possibly furnish. The
world may amuse and interest you now ,
but U can do nothing of the kind In the
world to come. Yon are young and
your hearts have not become hardened
by iuponitence and sin. Do not let this
important period of your life pass with
out accoptlnir the Saviour.

for improvements made in the interior of
the church edifice last spring was entirely

the presentation of a very line hand-knit

wife , and of a larco and very handsome
plush chair and beautiful dressing case
to the pastor , Uov. Win. K. Henderson.
The presentation speech was made by
O. H. Ballon , csq. , and was responded to
by Mr. Henderson. This church is in a
very flourishing condition. The mem
