DON'T GO TO CHURCH.
TomorrowT is the Sabbath.
The church bells will ring calling
you to worship. But don't go,
if you have no soul with which
to worship. Don't go if the God
whose institution the church is is
no greater than yourself or is a
fit subject ..for your criticism.
Don't go if man's existence is
but that of the beast. Don't go
if you know the bible to be un
reliable. Stay at home and read
fiction and fancy and facts the
more reliable from being filtered
throuerh human sieves. Don't
go if things pertaining to time
are more important than those of
eternity. Don't go if you don't
like to hear or engage in singing
what the "weaker minds" call
the sweet songs of Zion. Don't
go if you don't like to hear the
devout soul breathing its com
munions with its God. Gather
at public places and join in the
coarse and more satisfying hi
larity. Don't go and hear the
preacher, who has been trained
by a course of study and has
been spending hours of prayer
ful meditation in his study to
benefit the people and glorifiy
God in bringing out of the great
storehouse of knowledge things
both new and old. Gather with
the groups and discuss the more
up-to-date" topics. Pon't go to
church and hear a preacher in
whom you can detect some Haw.
Stay away whore you meet, sco
and hear only the perfect. Your
father and mother go and you
see in their devotion the mani
festation of some secret spring
of imperishable hope, a strange
fidelity to principle and truth,
you see in themamuek and hum
ble .-.pi rit. Don't go if you are
pitying their lack of your more

in which these devoted church
goers have suddenly awaked to
the truth and have renounced all
this as of no use, and contemplate
how very few have ever -ca
grieved over their neglect of
spiritual matters, especially when
the' came to the brink of an
other sphere that is a "Leap in
the dark." Don:t go to church
if there never arises in your
bosom a painful realization that
you wore created for some grand
and noble purpose in time or
eternity for which you are not
developing. Dona g to church
if you find your ideal-people out
side rather than iriside the church
and would rather abide forever
with these outside. Don't go to
church if there is no God that
you should adore, no Saviour to
whom you owe loving gratitude,
no Spirit that you would have
ever with you as a monitor to
warn you of error and danger,
arm you with courage and
strength in ordeals and speak
comfort to you when depressed.
Don't go to church if you are
sure that there is no heaven for
you to win and no hell for you to

Dr. John Hey Williams, of Ashe

Asheville, N. C, April 24, 1893.
An extended clinical use of Har
ris Lithia Water prompts me to
the statement that I regard it as
one of the best if not the . best,
Lithia Water known to the pro
fession. In the condition of
Phosphatic Urine, its action is
marvellous. Its use in the Rheu-.
matic and County Diseases afford
me more comfort than either the
Buffalo or Londonderry Waters.
Very truly yours,

alone manufactures more cotton
now than was manufactured in the
whole South in 1885. The utili
zation of motive power in oper
ating cotton mills, will still
further reduce the cost of pro
duction in the South and will
stimulate mill building, thus
hastening the supremacy which
this section is destined to have
in Unit industry, and the time
when the South will be the
