MONMOUTH, OREGON ; FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1883.
Straight to the woman’s side,
And nntting in
The rose, she r&n to hide
Her little face fn mdfher’s'lap,
Fearing she had done wrong,
Not knowing, baby as she was,
That she had helped along
The up-hill load of life a soul
As on the woman’s face there broke
A flood of joyous light.
Dear little ohild 1 she was indeed
__ A messenger nLlove______ _______
Sent to that woman’s lonely heart
From the great Heart above.
This world would be a different place
Were each to give to those
Whose hearts are sod as much of love
As went with baby’s rose.

We begin a new department in
this issue of the H erald called the
Educational Department, conducted
by Prof. Yates, of the Oregon Nor
mal School. Prof. W. E. Yates is
well and favorably known in Ore-
gon as an educator^ and we are
glad to be able to secure his assis-
tence in this department. The de
partment is not local, but is con
ducted in the interests of education
in general wherever our paper may
be circulated. While we feel that
this work is in safe hands, we wish
to state again that we are respon
sible for what we alone write. We
purpose only to exercise the gener
al oversight of all our departments,
and thus see that nothing detri
mental to the cause of Christ is
published'. Beyond this our respec
tive editors are responsible for their
Prophesy to us good things, was
the demand made by the enemies of,
the prophets of God in olden times.
The Jews as a nation, tl rough the
peculiar people of God, were often
falling into sin, and hence needed
to be chastened of the Lord. The
prophets, true to their calling, were
ever faithful in warning them of
their transgressions; and pointing
out the fearful and inevitable con
sequences of such rebellion against
God. This of course displeased the
people, and so they demanded that
good things should be pi^phesiedT-
unto them. This is what the false
prophets did. They yielded to the
popular demand and hence became
the favorites of the people. But
this the true prophets could not do,
and hence the ungodly and sinful
people despised and rejected them.
So it was in the days of Christ and
the apostles, and so it will ever be.
He who dares to rebuke sin and
uphold the right will often be for
saken and rejected by men; but God
will stand by all such to encourage,
strengthen and save them.
