Tho beat gift of (lod to nations is
thu gift of upright nun especially
upright men for magistrates, states
men and rulers. How bountiful
s lover tho heavens may bo t bow
rich tho earth may ba in harvests ;
though every wind of boavun waft
nrOMporily to its ports till tho land
s crowded with woar-hotises stuffed
to repletion with treasures, tiiat
country is poor whose citizons aro
not uoblo, and that republic is poor
which is not governed by Uoblo uiou
selected by its citizens.
Tho signs of decay in tho life of a
nation hIiow themselves as soon as
iu:ytf here clso in tho character of
tho men who arc c tiled to govern it.
Whou they seek thoir own ends, mid
not lho public weal i whou tiiny tt
baiidou principles, and administer
according to tho personal iuUrust of
cliipies, when thoy forsake righteous
ness and call upon insatiablo seltlsh
noss for counsel i aud whou tho
laws and lho framuwork of tho gov
wrnipcnt Hro but ninny Irjatrtl-
trietiU of oppression nnd of wrong,
whon tho uation cannot bo far from
decailonco. When God moans to
do woll by tho nation that bus back
Hliddeii, among tho slightest tokens
of his bnnelieent intent is tho rest or.
iitiou of men of integrity mou who
live for their follows, and uot for
. Llv3 Like Lovers-
Married peot'lo should troat each
other liko lovers all their lives
then they would be happy. Bicker
ing and (ltiarroiing would soon break
off lovo a Hairs t ootismpiontly lovers
imlulgo iu such ouly to n very limit
ed extent. Hut buiuo people meu
and women both when thoy have
once got married think they may do
juBt as they please, and it will make
no di.Toroucu. I hoy make n great
mistake. It causes all tho difference
in tho world. Women should grow
more devoted end men more fund
after marriage, if they have tho
slightest idea of being happy as
wives aud husbands. It is losing
sight of this fundamental truth
which leads to hundreds of divorces
let, many a man will oold bia wifo
who would never think of breathing
a harsh word to bis sweetheart t aud
many a wifo will be glum und mo
