We should strive to inculcate a deep-seated patriotism, a strong reverence for and belh-f in the eternal verities ot our republicanism.

The offset to any spirit of this kind should be made by educating the children to a high standard of pat riotism.

Congregationalism ancl Woman's frage. TIIK WESSINGTON SPRINGS, JERAULD CC Suf- The Congregationalists claim in their Manuals that it was their church that shaped the Government and Na tional Constitution of -the United States. Nor is this boast, a vain one. Ue Tocqueville and Thos. Jei'i'erson have said the same. It was the natur al outgrowth or religious persecution and governmental interference in mat ters of conscience. Hatred of courts of high commission led the Puritan Dissenter to deny the right of govern ment to interfere with the worship of individual congregations, each of which, he Jlaims, is independent. A church, he said, was only so many cov enanting Christians as could meet to together at one time in one place and the governing power was in the whole body of the church. iSoi'ar, so good but Lambert's platform which was used as the model for the Congrega tional, contains the following clause:— "Believing women may attend the meetings, but without the right of vo ting." Now, I wish to ask the editor of woman's liealm to explain the course of reasoning which could recon cile these two apparently opposite ide as, A DLFESEN'TKLI. It would take about the same course of reasoning as that which reconciles the statement that governments derive their just powers from the governed, to the fact that fully one-half of the governed in the United States are giv ing and can give no consent, and yet would be considered disloyal if they call our government unjust. In Con gregational cliurches where ladies are expected to contribute time and money and allowed no voice in church govern ment, the policy is similar to the U. S. Government. However, each church can make its own rules regarding this matter, and notwithstanding Dr, Dex ter and the Congregationalism there are many Congregational churches that have a truly republican form of govern ment-. Space forbids a further discus sion of this mutter in this issue. In our next we hope to publish an article on the views of the Apostle Paul con cerning the duties and qualifications of women. his column is devoted to tlie Intl-rcsts the ladies ot the Woman's Cliristiin \L\YY.M ance Union. 1 RJFC EDITKD in MRS. V. SIL .KS. It is assumed that its tthdency is to bring on cancerous humors, paralysis, and incites a taste for/ intoxicants. When tobacco is first used, the stom ach rejects it with contempt, thus proving that the taste is an acquired one, and like a seared conscience, ceases to rebel after frequent remonstrances. There are three principal modjs of using tobacco. One is by chewifcg it, which, beside being obnoxious to the surrounding people, is extremelyinjur ious. The salivary glands are inlamed, and in time cease doing their? work. The doctor can no longer determine the condition of the stomach by ap pearance of the patient's mouth. In digestion is another evil attendant upon chewing. The speech is very apt to become af fected, and some physicians insist that tliey can tell whether a public speaker be a chewer of tobacco or not. It permeates the system, carrying the poison into the veins and remjtr parts of the body.. Smoking is another method of us tobacco. The teeth are injured by practice, as would not be reinarkabl when the heat and the acrid poist of the cigarette comes in close conta with them. Put the influence on the lungs even worse than this. The smoke. aftU' being inhaled with the breath, passes into those tender tissues of the lunn's, impairing their delicate formation, and in time producing that awful and dc strc-yinc disease, consumption. The eyes also are injured to a certain extent by the smoke. The cigarette mania has become somowhat an alarming one among the youth of the country. The statement about opium and the other drugs in troduced into them may or may not bo true, but the tobacco in them is tobac co, and it is strongly affirmed by phys icians that to those of immature years, whose brain and bodies are in forma tive conditions, it is very harmful. Snuffing arid snuff dipping, the latter prevalent in the South, form another method of using tobacco, quite as disgusting, if not injurious as the oth er methods referred to. Those who have tested tobacco through a series of years are emphatic in the commendation of it, when advis ing theyovng, saying to them, ".Never, never touch it." W'hat surer proof of its harm car. be given than the testimony of those who are addicted to its fumes and tastes! Elizabeth Cady Stanto ill one of her lectures says she can find nc pas sage in the Bible that sustains the chewer, the smoker, or the snuffer un less it be" Let him that is filthy be filthy still." Granted fertile sake of argument, that prohibitory laws will eventually prevail and effect a comparative sup pression of the liquor trailic. A stream cannot rise higher than its source of supply, and unless there is a sufficient moral sentiment developed among the people at large to maintain laws, a ret rograde movement will coma sooner or later. That moral sentiment can be secured anil maintained only by put ting the question upon its J3iblo basis and that is the platform we stand on' The sale of brandy, either wholesale or retail, is forbidden in Xorway on Sundays, and on other festivals, or on their eves. It cannot be sold on any day before eight o'clock A. JI., or to apprentices. Not withstanding' tho disapoint ments encountered which were of no little movement, the camp moating was a decided success. Wo trust the good seed :.-ov?n will befcr abundant harvest.
