Intoxicating Wlno at the
BY T. n. WELCH, M. D.
Let mo nsk my brethren to ponder
the following, to my mind serious ob
jections to'tlio use of intoxicating wine
,a( the celebration of the Lord's Sup.
. per. I bellevo tliey will then earnestly
seek to despense with it, and use the
simple, pt.ro, unfermented "fruit of
the vine" the innocent, unvittnted,
untntoxlcatlng "blood of the grape."
1. Intoxicating wlno at the Sacra
ment of the Lurd's Supper Is certainly
an offense to those whose (aste Is un
preverted. IIow many I have heard
complain of Its dlfgustlng taste and
smell, and declare that they take it
only as they take noxious medicine
because they think It a dutyl Should
we thus needlessly offend?
2. It preverts the taste, so that this
repugnance lo It Is gradually overcome,
till finally a liking Is engendered that
Is abnormal, pernicious, unsafe, some
times causing drunkenness and destroy
ing body and soul. Brethren, is this
3. It is imminently dangerous to the
reformed inebriate especially If ne
still locks arms with its bosom compan
ion, tobacco ills appettte for alcohol is
not destroyed; It sleeps. The very
taste, or even smell, of this deadly
poison will therefore, sometimes Irresisti
bly arouse the appetite, and lead the
victim to destruction. We have sad
Instances of this, aud also of many
who, from fear ostitis avoid tho sacre-
ment us a dangerous place. Brethren,
Is tills right ?
4. It tends to make Intoxicating wine
respectable. The association of whis
key, ram and gin with bar rooms and
vulgar rovcllngs degrades these to the
level of obscenity and crime, 60 that
they are repuislvo to the Christian's
very instinct; but the association of
wine (which Is Just as truly intoxica
ting) with the Houso ol God and the
Holy Sacrement elevates It to some
thing, akin to sacredncss, and thus
tends to give It respectability as a com
mon beveraee. Brethren is not this
C. It cripples tho Influence of the
Church in the temperance cause; for It
is Inconsistent for Christians to exhort
sinners to "abstain from all that can
Intoxicate," upon the plea that all In
toxicants are a'polson and a curse, and
yet, at the same time, Invite every man
woman and child of, tho Church to
drink one .of tho most popular and
therefore the'most dangerous of them
all I lnd this as a religious duty! now
can we meet this glaring' inconsist
ency? G. It Is making a sacred use of a
wine which God has cursed. It must
be clear that there are two very dist
inct classes of wine described In the
Bible, though both are translated by
the same name, one unfermented, non
alcoholic, and therefore Innocent and
approved; and the other fprmented, or
alcoholic, and therefore poslonous and
condemned, one used. as the emblem
of God's blessing, the other of bis
wrath. Brethren Is tho latter tho wine
for the Lord's table?
7, Fermented wine, when Used to typi
fy the shed blood of the Crucified One,
Is false in its character. The process
of fermentation Is tho process of putre
faction; the result is the poisonous cup
of death. It is not this, but the wlno
as taken from the fresh ripe gtape,
that Is made typical of tho pure, living
blood of the Lamb of God, the drinking
of which Imparts life eternal. Breth
ren, Is It not revolting nigh blasphem
ousto give to him that would sup
with his Lord "the cup of Ills wrath,"
In place of "tho cup of Ills bless
ing?" 8. The use of fermented wine as
commemorative of our Saviour's last
Passover Supper, Is Inconsistent, both
as to the nature of the wine and the
character of the occasion It Is used to
celebrate. For fifteen hundred yean
ago the! Jews had symbolized the eat
ing the body aud drinking the blood of
the Lamb of God, using at this feast
only that which was unleavened. IIow
could Christ then have used any other
than the unfermented, fresh "fruit of
the vine?" Brethren, should we not
nnw symbolize the frtsh, flowing life
giving blood of the Son of God by
using the wine as handed us by Ills
Father In the puro "blood of the grape,"
unvltlated by the poisonous process of
0. Jt Is unnecessary to use fermen
ted wine. The approved, Innocent,
delicious wine, commended In the Scrip
tures, can be made now as well as in
the ancient times. Every housewife
preserves the fruit the same process
will preserve the Juice. Ylneland, N.
Custer's Expedition to the
BY HEV. J. M. MED, D. D.
General Custer Is a young man about
thirty-five years of aie, and halls from
Monroe, Michigan, whero his early and
eminent distinction Is the pride of tho
place. He has a fresh, expiesslve coun
tenance, and Is affable in his manners,
though It Is said that as an officer a cer
tain social reserve and military hauteur
preserve in tho minds of subordinates
a constant recollection that be Is In com
mand. Ills cultured pen has produced
In the Galaxy, under the title of "Life
on the Plains," some of the best arti
cles ou modern war fare ever produced.
For many weeks past Bismarck and
Lincoln bavo been all astir with prep
arations for the departure. Soldiers
and civilians, hones and wagons, arms
and stores, have been pouring In and
putlu readiness for the march. At
last the long and Imposing train filed
out to the South and West, and a sllenco
that can bo lelt prevades this frontier
town. The expedition cousists of a
thousand soldiers, ready for anything,
fizht or fun, a score of scientists, a few
reporters, and alt equipments necessary
for the conquest or discovery. We
want the eyes of the Christian men of
tho land to follow them and mark their
achievements or mischlevements.
Dakota Is the land of .the Sioux, and
the Sioux are possessed of a hereditary
and Implacable enmity to the white
man and to nil his friends. Bence
their hatred Is perfect toward the Rees,
Mandans, and Gros Ventres, who In
this region have always been allies of
our Government. Their horrible mas
sacres In Jfinnesota ure'still fresh In
our memories, and for their crimes they
were driven across the Missouri. The
lilick IIIlls are laid down upon our
maps somewhat Indefinitely In the
southerly part of the region whero they
now roam, and can be distinctly seen
from the far distance, towering above
all around them. Individuals and small
companies havo from time to time
sought to reach them, but none have
returned to tell what they saw. Gen.
Dandy, a son of Rev. J. II. Dandy, of
New Jersey, Is tho Quartei master of
the station, and told us that a squaw
once brought Into the fort a largo nug
get of pure gold, and told tho officers
that much more like it could be found
in tho Black IIIlls, but the said squaw
was never Been afterward.
"Running Antelope" and other In
dians have protested against this expe
dition, on the ground that. when the
whlto roan shall seo the agricultural
and mineral resources of all the land
he will want It. The Impression fienco
widely exists that these hills are guard
ed sedulously from the knowledge of
the white man becauso of the vast
wealth they contain, and It Is supposed
that an expedition will open up an El
dorado. To some It seems, howsver, that the
Sioux distinctly perceive that these
hills are their refuge. Much of their
country Is prairie, but the forests that
crown these hills are yet full of game,
whose flesh and pelts are their reliance
for support. In this view the fight on
their part will bo not so much with
Custer as to "keep the wolf from their
door," to preserve the last wilderness
that the rapacious hand of the white
man has not snatched from them.
Others there are, however, who think
that these hllli aro holy ground to the
Sioux. Perhaps they are the peculiar
haunts of the "Great Spirit," or per
haps are tho mausoleum of departed
greatness. At least; for some sacred
reason It Is supposed that they would
rather die than suffer them to be desec
rated by the white man soldier. Either
of these suppositions perchance all of
them may be true; but certain it Is,
that as soon as the purpose of Custer to
go to the Black Hills became known,
the young men began to disappear from
the tribes, so that to-day In all the re
gion about only the old men and squaws
remain. It Is supposed that not less
than 6,000 braves are ready to contest
the march of Custer. The war spirit
certainly prevails. Since I have been
here depredations have been committed
j within sight of Fort Lincoln, while
Fort Berthold was attacked by gome
400 Sioux, and several friendly Indians
of the Recs were slain.
The preparations for the expedition
have not progressed without remonstraD'
ces on the part of philanthropic whlto
men. It has been characterised by cer
tain dallies as an " Invasion," and has
been denounced as " wantonly cruel
aud wicked," as "a barbarous crusade
against peaceable unoffending Indians, "
and as "forbidden by the treaties of tho
United Statos " Bishop nare, of Ne
braska, and Bishop Whipple, of Minne
sota, It Is said, have entered a most
earnest and solemn protest against tho
expedition. What view our own Bish
ops, Jerrlll and Andrews, take of the
case we are not advised. Certainly,
grave matters are pendent' upon this
raid, and tho time may como when
tho reslstaoco of tho Sioux to the explo
ration of the Black IIIlls may bo plead
ed as tho nil-sufficient reason for the
transfer of Indian affairs to the Wor
Department, and for the utter relin
quishment of the President's "peace
policy." We do well to be forwarned.
Altogether too much Indifference ex
ists to the rights of tho aborigines In all
departments, the judiciary not excep
ted. A late case in Minnesota, involv
ing most Important principles, we
are told on good authority, was decid
ed by Justlco Miller, of the Supremo
Court of the United States, without ex
amination, tho Judge feeling Indisposed
to that labor this warm weather, and tho
practical question being involved hav
ing reference only to the right of cer
tain persons to sell liquor near a certain
reservation that had been protected. by
treaty with tho Indians from this des
troying evil. Tho Justice reserved to
himself the right to examine tho case,
and pronounce tho opposite opinion on
the Supreme bench should examination
lead him so to do on the appeal
of the case. He decided against
the protection of the Indians from this
abomination rather than the other way,
because only so was an appeal to tbo
Supreme Court possible Lo I the poor
We understand that no appeal will bo
taken, It Is so costly and perplexing,
and so the stupendous question Involv
ing this very treaty-making power with
the Indians remains unsettled, and this
Judgment Is a horrid and binding pre
dent for all the wants of the State,
while rum is free to work the ruin of
these Indians, as it has dono that of
thousands of others. We are sorry that
Justice Miller lost so signal an oppor
tunity to Immortalize his name by pro
claiming grand legal truths and princi
ples, and at tho same time protect the
poor Indian. God lives and reigns, and
He is also on thti side of tho weak, tho
poor and the defenceless. Let us be

What was dono In Six Days.
A widow sat In her solitude one
stormy whiter evening, thinking over
her happy youth and her present deso
lation. The father and mother who
bad so tenderly cherished her were
sleeping n the grave; the competence
they had left her had vanished like
vapor In a unfortunable Investment;
and after that had fallen tho heaviest
stroke of all, her hnsband, a brave
and noble-hearted sea captain, had
died In a forlegn land, and left her
with an embarrassed homestead, and
two little boys to feed! and clothe, and
educate, with her own weak hands.
Tears fell on the white bands that
lay folded so helplessly on her lap, as
sue-thought of her early friends with
whom, she had played In childhood.
They were prosperous and happy.
Three of them lived beside her; and
the contrast between their lot and her
onn made hers appeared still darker.
She began to Imagine that she was for
gotten or slighted by them, and per
haps forsaken by God also, bho did
not know that the blue eyes of one
friend were often red with tears for her;
or that other eyes with jet stronger
sympathy, were kept wakeful the long
night with plans for her; audthat kher
third friend was pleading, with a care
less, money-loving husband, day and
( night, not to fotecloso the mortgago on
her home, bho saw tho clouds that
gathered about her prospects but she
did not see the sunbeam that was al
most ready to dispel them.
The twilight grew deeper and the
north wind moaned more wildly with
out, when suddeuly the door burst open
and ber boys rushed lo, from the pond
where big boys had been teaching tbem
Unwinding tho warm red tippets
from their necks, and pulling th o mit
tens from their benumbed bands, they
began, both at once, telling her of their
great success, and'ot the kindness of
the "big fellows."
When tho light of tho firo fell on tho
mother's face, Oharlie saw traces of her
tears, and going to ber ho pressed har
burning cheeks with his little cold
hands and asked, tenderly, "What alls
you, mother? wcro you too lonely when
we wer out so late?"
"Nomy dear," roplled the lady,
"but I have a heavy care on my heart
to-night, and I could not help crying.,'
"What It Is, mother? Can't I help
you any?" asked the bravo little fel
low. "No, my dear, not In this trouble;
but as you grow older you can help me
a great deal. I mean by ar.d by to
throw off all caro and lean on you
that's when my hatr gets gray and you
area man, you know, my dear."
"I wish I was a man now," cried
tbo boy, stretching himself to his full
height, as if to anticipate the time.
"But what aiade you cry, mother?"
"Charlie, you know there Is a small
mortgage on this place, which I hope to
meet. But I can't do it, and I fear wo
shall looso'our home. It I could keep
that, wo could live with great pru
dence." "I think we can do it some way.
mother dear," said Charlie, passing
one little arm tenderly around her
"But, my dear, It Is nearly a thous
and dollars, and there are only six days
to laise It in."
'Six days, mother," cried the boy.
as his eyes brightened with hope.
"Why, that's a long time to do it lnl
Only think what God did In six days.
He mado the world, and I guess he
can makelthat Utile bit of money In
the same time."
"I know ho can, Charley, you dar
ling boy; and If he does not seo best to
do It, and we hove to leave our home,
I will thank him that he has left mo my
boys. I canf bear any poverty and
cares with you to help and comfort me,
my bravo boy; I will trust the"God'who
madenwholo world in six days, and
bellevo that ho will do what is best for
us in this matter.
That evening the three early frton'ds
of this widow were sitting together at
tea with their husbands, talking of her.
The gentleman who held the mortgage
which was to be paid In elx days, noia
tightly all he owned.
"Suppose,; said one of tho others,
we Just divide that thousand among
us, and let tho family keep their home?"
Tho owner of the mortgage looked
up and started. "Whatl give her tho.
thousand dollars outright?" he asked.,
"Yes, why not? God has spared us,
to our families, who might bavo been aa
she Is to-night.' ' i . n
After a moment's pause, lha weolwivK.
replied, "Well, that plan never entered
my head, while ,Ive been wondering
how she would pay itl It's an awful
sum to give away, but I declare I'll
give up ono-thlrd of It, If you two will
pay the two-thirds."
His wife, whose heart 'Was aching
for her friend, was amazed at this sud
den freak of generosity, and exclaimed.
"O, I thank you. mora than I can tell,
and I propose to savo that sum to you
In some way this very yearl"
Before "six days" had passed, that
widow was In possession of her home.
as well as having new faith In her early
He who made the world tn six days
had, as Charley said he would, "mado
that little bit of money;" and what was
far more a miracle, be had ;drawn It'
easily from a heart usually shut against
all appeals for aid.
When some great mountain In our
path Is to bo leveled, and the time seems
wholly too short for the work, let us
remember this sweet boy's words of
cheer, and take courage.
"Would my little Ezra' asked a
fond mother, "like to be a missionary,
and go preachnd to the psor .suffering,
little heathen?" Tears bright, pearly
drops of feeling glistered In little
Ezra's eyes as he muttered : "No, I
