The editor the Cadiz Republican in commenting the result the vote prohibition in Texas says a a it will do no Good for the prohibition organs to misrepresent matters. The Plain fact is that the state Texas which is overwhelmingly democratic All questions has Defeated the prohibitory amendment to its Constitution by an overwhelming majority. That is All there is to it. It does not argue that All democrats Are in favor intemperance nor that All republicans Are Temperance people. It does not argue anything at All except the fact that the great democratic state Texas is overwhelmingly opposed to adopting anything like prohibition. A a there is this other fact to be remembered in this connection that All the states which have put prohibition into their state constitutions thus far have been Republican states. We do not argue anything from this fact. We simply want the facts remembered As we go Long. The facts Are All the arguments that Are the editor is surely not very Well informed facts else is not willing to admit them. We would ask him if several the Southern states have not put prohibition into their state constitutions and Are democratic. We ask if the great state Ohio which is regarded As a great Republican stronghold did not refuse to Amend her Constitution by defeating the prohibition amendment. We would ask what party it is that has abused the prohibition party and has so severely criticised its leaders and denounced them As a fools and the fact is the Republican party did it. Yes a a we simply want the facts remembered As we go along. The facts Are All the arguments that Are what if the next legislature should be democratic would John Sherman still insist upon Gratifying his presidential ambition and thereby lose a Republican senator ? quite a number the Young folks enjoyed a picnic at Chippewa tuesday.

Porter. A the Kentucky election has turned out to he a Surprise to everybody. The democratic plurality is Only about thirteen thousand the Republican gain being about Twenty seven thousand.

Why do we study history an essay prepared and read before the Tuscarawas county Institute August 12, 1887. By Rev. J. G. Zahner d. D. History in its general sense is a very important Branch science and no one can he said to possess a Liberal education without a respectable knowledge history. History in its proper sense is not a narrative everything that happens in the world hut a True and life like record such things and events by which a nation the whole human race is More less influenced and directed in a certain course. For instance what George Washington the father our country and his co patriots said and did in their families in every Day life is properly no part history but what they have spoken and done As generals and statesmen is eminently historical because the destinies our country and people were thereby measurably determined. We speak general history comprising All Ages and nations Mankind and particular history treating Only a special period nation. Biography the history influential individuals also belongs to history. Further we May select special subjects that belong to history such As Art literature political Economy education Etc. Having defined clearly what we Are to understand by history we now proceed to the consideration our subject As announced by the question a a Why do we study history a in the first place i say we study history not simply because we expect material Benefit from it hut More so because the study history carries like every other study its Reward in itself. It expands elevates and refines the human mind and affords pleasures far More real and lasting than any pleasures a Mere sensual nature. True it requires More attention and application than the Reading everyday literature but the Benefit and pleasure that a faithful student history is Able to draw from his subject is not to he compared with any pleasure that May accrue to the human mind by Light Reading any kind. What subject research can he higher and nobler than the history Mankind a know thy self a is one the sayings the Wise men Greece. To know the whole human race in All its past conflicts and struggles to contemplate its continual and gradual March Onward from bar arism to civilization from superstition to the More enlightened forms belief from simple patriarchal Rule to extensive Monarch Al governments from slavery and despotism to civil and religious Liberty a to Survey this grand and wonderful Panorama a in Short to commune with Ages and men Long since passed All this must he incalculable value and pleasure to the thoughtful mind. But in the second place we May say that the study history is immense importance and use for our practical life. History has been defined As a philosophy teaching by in history we find the accumulated lessons Many centuries treasured up. Experience is certainly the Best teacher. We should Ever he ready to learn from the past to avoid its errors and to profit by its worthy examples and achievements. But we go further and say that no Man can properly understand his own age if he entirely ignores the past. The present is simply the product the past. The child is father to the Man. We cannot understand the Man without his boyhood and in the Hoy we have the Type the future Man. For instance no one can understand the present political and religious condition the United states unless he knows its former history. It is also quite evident that Only those that understand their own age Are Able to exert a Good and lasting influence the world around them. A Man in any sphere life who does not know and understand his own times can have no definite aim hut is always experimenting and is Apt to fall into extremes one Way another. This holds True in the Case every citizen and every professional Man hut especially in the Case every politician and every statesman. It holds True also in the Case every minister the gospel and every teacher Public instructor. A preacher not knowing Church history will hardly he Able to work intelligently and effectively for the advancement the kingdom Christ and a Public teacher not knowing anything the history Public education will in a great measure he in the dark for the Art teaching has its history. In no age the world was it entirely stationary hut always More less progressive. In our time and especially in our country it is remarkably progressive and compels the teacher to study and try the different methods teaching in order to he Able to give up what is not Worth retaining and hold fast adopt what has proved itself As useful and necessary. There Are two forces Active in history the conservative principle and the Progress Ive principle. Both Are legitimate and necessary hut both May he run into extremes. The extreme conservatism is old fog ism and the extreme the progressive tendency is radicalism. Both Are a historical and false. They Are enemies to True Progress. The one 9ticks to the old established order things no matter How defective Al surd and bad it May he the other is Bent to Root up and destroy without being Able to produce something better. True Progress holds fast what historical experience has proved to let a wholesome and Good Only shaking off what has shown itself untenable. The study history is also shedding Light the future. As the past throws Light the present so the future is seen and Felt in the present. As there Are sure indications the weather so there Are sure signs things and events which will break upon us in the time to come. The great reformation the 16th Century was plainly foreseen and foretold by men science and learning. To the student history the crisis that broke France in the year 1789 came not unawares. In that country the progressive principle was too Long held under restraint oppression gathered Force like a Volcano till it burst Forth in a bloody revolution the like the world had never seen before. The causes our own civil War were secretly at work Long before it came and Wise men saw it coming years before it actually broke out. The state things in Russia portend a mighty revolution in the near future either a constitutional revolution a revolution by Force. England has often averted a violent revolution by granting reforms by parliamentary enactments and Wil probably do so in the future. In our own country there Are at present destructive forces at work that must lie met and overcome if the nation shall live. We will Only Point to the labor troubles and the propaganda socialism and communism. History unmistakably shows that All such troubles should he settled by timely reforms in a spirit Mutual Concession and Compromise. A settlement by Force one Way the other would not heal but Only aggravate the evil. If past experience has proved anything it has clearly shown that socialism and communism have no place in our free country. The question May he asked what has made our country great and prosperous without a parallel in so Short a time to have to it come the Marvel the world ? the True answer is it is individual Liberty Only restricted by Wise and equitable Laws. It is full play Given to every Man woman and child to exert themselves freely according to their talents and gifts and their own inclination and will.

It is the Sweet Home and family life which we enjoy in our country and which enables us to provide for our children and fit them by family and school education for practical life. Take away these blessings and privileges and compel men to have every thing in common and you will destroy All individual work and Enterprise. You will transform men into machines sink Hack into despotism and final barbarism. All communistic societies the past proved utter failures and had to he dissolved. Finally i would say that the study history is a decided moral and religious Benefit. I n history a just Providence clearly manifests itself. Every thoughtful and unbiased mind will see this. The Law a righteous retribution pervades the history individuals and whole nations. Both profane and sacred history is full such examples. I will Only Point you to the two distinguished athenians Aristides and Themistocles and the two Kings Israel Saul and David. And what Strong lessons does the destruction the jewish nation and their City teach likewise also the decline and fall the roman Empire. History can therefore not otherwise hut strengthen the moral and religious sense its student. In conclusion i will say that if any you feel encouraged by this essay to study history More faithfully and attentively in the future i shall consider myself abundantly rewarded for my Effort.
