general conception, and it is hard
lor the average editor to accept for publi

superstition, fiction, or romance of a
more modern date. Modem philosophy
and science ii slowly Incoming known
to the people.
Tlia man with moner. or a cracker at
tacbed to the end of his name, such as
lord. duke. sir. or vour honor i"von'er
can be heard at most any time, whether
that which thev have to say is of merit
or not. But when the poor man, the
"self- made" man, the thinker, calls for
listeners the people become shy and
view him from a far through a teleacojie

nation's coins tbat glorious word, lib

My subject for the Pi ai.ndlallk today
is the (.iraeco Turkish iiuegtioD, or Chris
tian verses Mohaiuedan, aud as 1 an?
now rijHJ iu .ne aud i-xjrience and
have lived patl my grccu and timid days
I shall not fear but 1 ehall epeak the
truth as 1 have lived euflicieutly long to
see the trutb. And iu claiming to call a
spade a spade, shall not call it by a
technical term. I am glad that 1 have
arrived at political and religious man
hood. Proud that I fear nothing in that
line, and there is nothing (hit should be
eo much deapiced, as a political or re
ligious hypocrite, i"or I bold to live in
fear of another'a displeasure or hate is a
crime, for each individual is an equal
creature in Nature, and should "stick
ud" for Lib or ber rights.
And now for the point but first let us
use another line from Pope: "Tbia
world, 'tis true, was made for Christian
but for Mohatnedan too." The religion
of a nation is but tbe reflections of the
moral and intellectual state of its people.
Tbe religion of either tbe Greek cr tbe
Turk wilt not bear criticism. The mo
ment yon begin to criticise either, its a
farewell to faith. Either of the religions
decrees deities iu and out of existence,
and when in existence their sphere of
action was limited. The morals and re
ligions of either nation have ever been
changeable and has bad different stand
ards. This is due to the enlargement of
minds from fresh experiences, and
when the mysteries of either become re
vealed through the scrutiny of science,
they cease to become objects of religion.
Both religions preach against worldly
pleasures and advocate mid;' valistn, or
the worship of pain, the past . cf both is
what it should not have been, for re
ligion should have been on earth for tbe
sake of humanity and not for the saint.
Generally speaking, the Christian re
ligion or the Mohamedon religion is sim
ply a geographical question. To Cod
tbe absolute truth of . either you have to
examine the map. In Greece the lead
ing character in tbe New Testament ro
mance, was tbe son of God, in Turkey he
was not. In Turkey Mohamed was the
only true prophet, in Greece he was not.
kacn country otters wonderful things to
substantiate their claim. Greece offers
portions yet remaining of the erobs in
evidence, while the Turk takes you to
tbe holy rock, where is seen the foot
prints of Mohamed as he stood on
when about to make his corporeal
ascent into neaven. vmie me ore
cian most holy prophet ascended
bodily to heaven with a hole in hii
side! Think of it!! Iu my opiuion one
is as preposterous as the other, that
which is not reasonable or probable, is
neitder inspiration nor revelation, but
romance. Ancient writing olten re
vised, remodeled and enlarged culm ma
ted iu Koran and the Ho!y Bible.
B-jth croak of a judgment day, an
awkward "last time." When iu the
light of science each day is the resur
rection, with its heaven oyer yonder, in
to which the evolved Christ of humaui
it me progressing people are ever
ascending, lluuiauity is the only iceJi
ator between man an J nature's ui)etery.

1'ourteen vessels laden with free woul
sailed into Boston harbor in one day
last week. It is evident that a year's
supply or loreigu wool win uive been
brought into the country before the new
tariff act can possibly bo put upon the
statute books, even with a continuance
of tbe rapid work which congress has
made thus far in its consideration. And
still there are people who aro wondering
why prosperity Las not come already.
With hundreds of millions of dollars g j
log abroad for foreign products instead
of into tbe bands of our own people, it is
unreasonable to expect any great im
