Take that and you leave Hamlet out of the pluy. Let us a change of thc Constitution in this is that as it is a standing insult offered by the nation to its author of its existence and prosperity. We have virtually said in that instrument which is the high- est expression of the nation's lips are our own is Lord over Why has not God smitten us as He did infidel France There is but one reason the insult was not understood nor intended by the nation. The at- tention of the nation has never until recently been called to the and even yet many Christian men will hardly consent to such an interpreta- tion. But now the question is forced to an and we must setlle can no longer occupy an altitude of neutrality or inaction. Like Pontius Pilate we have a person on our hands and like him we may shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ We must either crucify or crown and like the Jewish nation onr decision will seal our future destiny. Either like them we will reject him and or becoming a kingdom of our Lord and his we shall nil the earth and endure forever. During our recent struggle to save the nation's life from the assault of a terrible the Senate of the United States requested President Lincoln to call the nation to humiliation nnd that for Christ's sake would save the na- Tliat prayer was hertrd and and tho nation and ever since we have had our yearly thanksgiving at the call of the Presi- dent to render thanks to God for the mercies of the year.

On the other subjects refusing alle- giance expose themselves to thc wrath of their Soverign. And now the infidel junto have pro- claimed their determination that all these national acts of religion shall and they make their demand on constitutional grounds. Their posi- tion is and we are left the alternative either to conform our Con- stitution to our practice or lapse into atheism. The issue is fairly joined the lines are clearly and ihe respective parties are ranging them- selves under their respective banners. The demands of liberalism all laws looking to the enforcement of Christian morality shall be abroga- and every vestige of Christiani- ty swept out of the present one side of the question. Our amendment is the other. When this contest is there will be no long- er room for the plea of ignorance or Good Government. The secret of good government is found in the close attention paid by the people to its interests. The best system ever devised by human wis- dom is but little better than the worst if it fails to meet the cordial support of the governed. To elect good men to office is one of the first conditions of good to strengthen them in their and encour- age them in their endeavors to pro- mote the public welfare by active co- operation on the part of the people is no_ less essential and Wise men may be elected to but .they are powerless if the people refuse that ready support and cheer- ful which are the distinct- ive characteristics of a strong govern- ment. In a republic like our where the people are the recognized and tho highest ruler is but the temporary servant of the pop- ular there can be no excuse for bad government. If it exists in any locality the cause is to be found in the people themselves. They dele- gate the control of their franchise to a few who make politics a who buy and sell without reference to who care for a party only so far as it yields them a fair return in dollars and cents. Where such a practice bad government is sure lo be found. Our large cities are marked illustrations of this fatal tendency on the part of the respecta- ble portion of the to leave the entire manipulation and manage- ment of aflairs in the hands of a few trained politicians. There must be a radical reform in this direction or the evil will become a source of positive weakness to our form of Government. To bring about a requires ihe exercise on the part of the citizen of more not at the ballot-box but also at the primary meeting. The primary or town meeting is the fountain head of good or bad government. If it ex- presses the sentiments of all thc peo- ple in a certain good govern- ment is likely to but if it speaks the voice of what might be justly culled tho demoralized element of government is the se- quence. The first step forward to the purification of politics must be taken by the people themselves. Thc morality and patriotism of the nation must be largely represented in the conventions that delegate power to a few men. This will give us a better class of of- ficials and make good government possible even in onr lar- gest cities. The tho the must be used as levers to overthrow the prejudice which now exists among the more intelligent of onr people against participation in political af- fairs. Every should be pressed with the necessity of taking an active part in the political affairs of tho dis- trict in which he lives. By this means we shall have better men communities better and the varied interests of the Re- more faithfully guarded and sustained. Attorneys. Nurseries.

This was extremely and noth- ing less than a very sharp vision tne could plainly discern it. He called at 1 n dentist's ollice and had the tooth rooled it in a sheet of note and took it home with him. The pain had been so intense and protracted that he concluded to ex- amine very thoroughly the tooth which had annoyed him BO much. A very careful inspection of it revealed nothing strange or peculiar.
