expansive .Tiew. wlicre glimpse of
the Lternal Verity i hadowed in j

Now, did man spring from monkey
Of one fact vre arc certain, that man
exists here in his present condition;
that he came here without his knowl
edge or consent, that he is what he is
of necessity, i e he hts.nor has hail, any
choice in his existence. Whether he
is selt existent, came from monkey, or
had a maker, h is all one ; whether he
likes it or not, he is what he is, and
can't help himself. Of the five races
no individual of cither, can change
himself into an individual of the other.
The negro is black and no amount of
scrubbing can make him white. His
hair is kinky, and the art of man is a
failure in attempting to straighten it.
The Mongolian can never assume the
featues, the gait, nor the appearance
of the European.-. The wild Indian of
Xorth America is a savage beyond re
demption. Inwar, in the ciiaue, at
the d.uice he is all life and activity.
Put him to work and he languishes,
compel him to work and he dies. It
is said that man was created in the
image of Cod, and if I mistake not the
account, it means, when God wished to
have a man upon the earth he took
some of the virgin soil and shaped it
afier ft pattern of his own image, and
that the first Adam, both male ami fe
male, commenced their earth-life fully
developed man and woman ; no youth,
no childhood, no infancy, no ante
natal existence, no cell-life; clean.
purerand perfect Irom the hand of
their Creator, and a perfect likeness ot
Himself. That the Lord i-Jod seeing
the beauty and perfection of this, his
last crowning act of creation, hreathtd
into his nostrils the breath of life, and
man became a living soul.
This is one of the prettiest romances
in the poetry of the human heart, and
but lor the cold facts of a stem and
i igid science, we might wish for the j
delusion to remain, and ever take us'
back to that proximity with the great j
God, which the craving of the whole
soul of humanity so earnestly desires,
and expects in a state of future re
pose. Rut this is not in accordance
with the "vorkings of the Mighty Pow
ers of the universe, and until some
other evidence be educed save the
mere ise dirit of a questionable au
thority, the human mind will continue
to exercise its great God given pie- j
sogative--to think foe itself. That it I
gets into error is no argument against
the legitimacy of its pursuit, fur all the!
great truths, botii spiritual and secular;
that are no longer controverted, came
forth from a pile of rubbish and con-
fusion, as the pure gold is drawn anu
separated from its native ore. As far
as the investigations of the humm
min i iiMve gone, we find that every
living thing has conic from an antece
dent, similar Lo itself. This includes
the cgetable, as well as the animal
kingdom, and no where do we find any
abrupt breaking in upon this uuiveral
law. Numberless forms sre presented
in l.'Oth kingdoms differing in aspect,
in construction, and iu function ; but

and to such, they are not addressed;

?!phic god must guide those who. unwil

The origin of man then is something
different from the accepted interpreta
tion of Genesis. When the earth be
gan to cool, this uniform temperature
arrived at precisely the requisite de
gree, for c.dl action to take on devel
opment, just as the increased heat of
spring causes buds to swell and seeds
to germinate. This J.cti ni went on
under an infinity id" circumstances,
and t h 3 result was an iidi iity of forms.
We have now five distinct types of the
human race. In the early geological
ages, it is not ur reasonable to sup
pose there might have been five thous
and or five hundred thousand. The
present typ-s were the fittest," and
therefore survived. Of all that vast
possible multitude of Microeosmic De
velopments, only five have been able
to cope with the vicissitudes of life,
and it is by no means certain, that all
these will be able to hold out to the
end. The inroads that have been
made upon the 'orth American Indian
within the memory of man, at the same
rate will exterminate him in a few
more years. Seme possible remains
that have been exhumed in various
parts of the earth, go a iong way to
make this theory probable, and in
connection with the great extinct ani
mals, and the carbonized forests of
the e u lv ages of the world, it is hardly
possible to conceive of any other plsn
by which man in his present condilion
can be accounted for.

When Logan jerked himself up
J .X) pounds of sorrow to the
t inch, there wis a mild exodus. "Tw

, Zach ouc sit together in the Senate
ac I togetner sqirted the Mrginia
, weed. nt to speaV of exchanging
djuhtful anecdotes. I have no doubt
h' missed the boss Stalwart immensely
sn i was sincere in saving so. Besides
j Mr. Chandler was last seen on earth
i alive in Logan's company, and so the
; aboriginal Senator from Illinois was
! thoroughly qualified to mourn fjr hiri.
He wound up by pathetically "hoping
to meet his old friend hereafter, and
aTeral irreverent gentlemen ir my
vicinity ejaculated s-Ato vocf that they
had no doubt he would be gratified.

He did not last long fortunately, and
and as tiie exodus continued, he laid
his manuscript on his desk and sub
sided. Senator Rlair, of NcwHamp
shire, then made his maiden speech
or, more properly apeaking, read his
virgin manuscript. It was a sophomori
cd cfljrt. A'cw Hampshire exhausted
her breed of inNllectual Senatorial
giants with Daniel Webster ami peter
ed out with Ztok Chandler. From
Webster to Chandler 'here ws a
great de?c;n and a greater still from
Chandler to Ulair. Everybody was
surprised to sea Don Cameron rise in
his seat ami procee 1 to readjust one
page of foolscap. What lie uttered I
do not know. Nobody heard a word
that passed his lips. It may have
been a railway circular, for all I know.
Mr. Cameron ha 1 never spoken in the
Senate before, and I would advise him
to speak again, unless he has a divided
of some kind to declare.

will soon commence the erection of

A bad book, magazine, or newspa
per, is tin dangetom to your child as a
vicious companion, and will as surely
corrupt his morals and lead him away
from lhi path of safety. Every parent
should set this thought clearly before
his mind and ponder it welj. Look to
what your children read, ami especi
ally to the kind of paper that get
mto their hands, for there are now
published scores of weekly papers, with
atttaitive and sensuous illustrations,
that are as hurtful to younsj and Inno
cent soulds as poison to a healthy
body. Many of these papers have
attained latge circulation, and are
sowing broadcast the seed of vice and
crime. Trenching on the very borders
of indecency, they corrupt the morals
taint the imagination, and allure the
weak and ungnrded from the paths of
indocenee. The danger to younjc
persons from this cause were never so
great as at this time, and every father
and mother should be on their zuard
against an enemy that is sure to meet
their child. Look to it. then, that
your childrc J are kpt free as possible
from this taint. Never bring into
your house e paper or periodical that
i not strictly pure. S'e to it that an
abundance of the purest and hcilthiest
reading is placed before your children.
Hungry lambs will eat poison, but if
well fed on good fooJ, they let the
poison alone. If you wish to save your
own children and the children of o'.hers
uo all you can to sustain an 1 circulate
healthy religious literature.
