misnamed the intellectual class, for
the work of merchants, bankers, in
ventors, builders, in fact all men who
are required to incessantly use their
judgment and designing faculties, is
as strictly intellectual as that of the
mau who edits a newspaper, writes a
poem or composes a sermon. Bank
era and builders, merchants and mas
ter mechanics break down as fre
quently as editors and preachers,
the only difference being that
they are not so prominent and
consequently not so much talked
about I know a ilopr-walkcr in a
great dry goods store" wbose mental
organization is exactly like that of
certain clergymen and journalists,
and once in a while ho breaks down
just as some preachers and editors
do, and for the same reason. 1 know

correct habits, but for once, arter
having secured a contract in which
there was a sure little fortune, strayed

I brought back until his family and
business friends had given away to
the crudest suspicions as to the
cause of his disappearance. "What is
the matter with these men? Well,
the same trouble that drives thous
ands of women to the madhouse, tbe
invalid chamber, or untimely death,
their work is never done not if they
are fit for their respective positions.
A managing journalist may have the
the pleasantest position aud most
considerate employers in the work,
but his paper is never bo good but he
wants it belter; his competitors are
as energetic as himself, and the do
ings of the day will not arrange them
selves according to the mental con
venience of any mau alive. So the
editor falls into a rut that is, he
gives his entire time and thought to
his work. His office hours may end
daily at a stated time, but his work
does not end with them; he fills one
pocket with manuscripts, another
with books, takes a handful of news
papers and starts for home to contin
ue his daily routine. In the course
of time he finds himself getting for
getful or sluggish of mind; then he
consults either a physician or a bar
keeper and swallows whatever is giv
en him. With the relief thus tempo
rarily obtained he goes on, imagining
himself cured, but soon he finds him
self obliged to return for stronger
In the courso of time stimulants,
no matter how honestly taken, cease
to stimulate, for the simple reason
that nothing is left to work upon.
The man is used up and the day
comes when the tired mind, iucapa
blo of doing anj thing else, begins to
turn upon and destroy itself, just as
any orher broken dowu machine al
ways does. But where one editor
falls in this way, a score of profes

Every day you meet dozens of el
derly people "in whoso faces there is
no clear intelligence their features

dy, false. Yet they were once bright
and young as you are; they dreamed
as you dream, of great and good
things to come. And they had mo
ments of serious thought and high
resolve. All these damaged old peo
ple are so many once young; What
are the causes of failure? Probably
some of them are victims of blight
ing misfortune or injustice; possibly
some of them passed through their
early years without adequate guid
ance, wise instruction or kindly en

failed from txnfaithfnlness to them

depends on storing up yourselves an
ever increasing fund of moral power,
which shall always be available to
sustain you in carrying out your bet
ter purpose. -Unless you are willing to
live as moral tramps,on the brink of in
ward poverty and misery, we must in
vest our all in this higher business,
so that everv transaction of life shall
yield us spiritual income. Nothing
is secure until we are established in
right habits, rcoled and grounded iu
heavenly principles. We want to be
come fiied and unchangeably good.
This comes from making the loc of
good, which is identical with the love
of God, the supreme and controlling
law, the central interest and the foun
tain of motives. We shall do better
than keep ourselves decent; we shall
be purer and truer than the world
asks us to be; we shall require of our
selves a higher standard than our best
friends expect We shall be continu

The main question is not "What is
to become of us?' but "What are we
to become?" Nor is the answer diffi

with questions of doctrine, nor wait
to construct creed. If we are simply
faithful if wo follow the light tha't
God gives, if we are humble enough
to learn from all sources, and yet firm

was evidently in ignorance of Admir

This will involve nu entirely new
departure in our foreign policy.,
American administrations have al-
ways reuiseu to occupy witu arms
points in forcigu countries. Ou sev
eral occasions they havo been solicited
to hold places iu Central America
for tho protection of life aud properly
in insurrectionary times, bnt they
have alwajs refused. The tradition
ary policy of the nation has been to
keep hands oIY foreigu territory.
Now, it seems, wo aro forced to break
through the rule and one caunot help
wondering what will bs the end of
the new order of things. Who will
pay the co3t of the occupation oflho

would it do to buy tho isthmus ont

were American territory it would be
natural that we should send troops to
protect it. But as it 13, is not the
American Hag rather out of place on
Colombiau soil? And if it be furled,
what security have wa that the rail
road will not be torn up and that
