A SCREED ON HUMAN NATURE
Experience and the accum ulation
of years has tau g h t us th a t human
n atu re is much the same in ali
ages, and th a t while there may be
individual cases, hum anity, as a
whole, lives and actH morally und
imm orally about the same as it al
ways did before Noah opened a
shipyard and engaged in a m enagerie
venture. Coming on down to more
recen t years and away back in the
ea rlier days of our own life, back in,
let us say, w estern New York,
churches were not as plentiful as
they are now, and itinerant preach
ers w ere wont to show up in the
w inter season and hold old fash
ioned “ revivals” in the countryside
school houses. W ithin our recollec
tion one of these was a hard-headed
old Scotch P resbyterian who, we
used to listen to in open-mouthed
awe, because his language was such
we scarce understood him, and what
we did were rath e r ignorant of its
m eaning or its application. On an
occusion he took it upon himself to
berate those who “ w ent to church
all day on Sunday, and raiseij hell
ali day on M onday,” the point of
which we never grasped until in
a fte r years. Then we began to
learn there were a lot of ju s t such
people in the world, and th a t the old
Scotchman knew w hat he was talk
ing about and had the drop on them.
We learned th a t the neighbor who
never missed a church service was
possessed of more tricks than a cir
cus monkey when it came to a horse
trude, and could lie about the quali
ties of u cow with a sang froid th a t
wus refreshing, to say the least. Wc
recall one instance when dad p u r
chased u horse fru m a church dea

and when he returned
w eight you, and if you lonned him
a few dollars on his note he would
le t it go to protest and when you
kicked about his honesty point to
his church record. He found fuult
about your bqys’ robbing his melon
patch, and if he did not keep a gal
lon ju g of whisky in his cellar it was
a live or tcn-gullon keg. He wus
simply illum inuting his hum an n a
tu re, church or no church. Probably
not much worse, all in all, than the
rest of us. We have ourselves been
known to miss church on Sunday,
instead og atishing, make too liberal
use of the " b a it" ; and while we did
not "raise hell” on Monday, it usual
ly had that effect on our physical
system. Ju st humun n atu re again.
The whole fact of the m a tte r is hu
man nature haunts ull of us. Some
of us think we a re b etter than tin

lie. So when it is all simmered
down to the very tru th , th e re are so
few of us who do not "go to church
all day on .Sunday and raise hell

with both arm s cut otf could count
us on his fingers.
