SOGER THOUGHTS FOR SOLEMN PEOPLE
51 AN A FAl.I.KX OOIJ.
Man is a fallen (Sod on the earth.
Ilia erect ncss, .faculty of speech, do
minion over inferior life, and power of
reasoning upon the future, have n
strange liifht of divinity lingering
u;i them even now. In his wildest
talk there are aceonts and snatches of
expression which must have come
from heaven; hi majesty is a blurred
reprint of an ancient charter; His
thinking is the dim light which strug
gles through an eclipsed genius. He!
does not know himself a fallen niemlver
of the heavenly hierarchy; he grojH-a
anil flounders as though ho had hist!
something; and now and. again there
come through his daily life gushes of
tenderness and glitterings of mind
which have a deep meaning, a mean
ing which makes the heart sore and
sad as it vainly tries to piece itself Into
We learn the depths to which v
have fallen by the length of the chain
let down to up-draw us. We ascertain
the mightiness of the ruin by examin
ing the machinery of our restoration.
We gather that we must be totally un
able to climb our way back, from the
fact that none less than the Son of the
Highest has the strength to light the
bsttlos of our race and restore us to
joint rulership with the "King of
There have always been thos-e who
would place a light istimate upon the
hurts which man has inflicted on him
self, of the sickness with which hois
sick: who would persuade themselves
and others that moralists and divines,
if they h;ive not quite invented have
enormously exaggerated these. Hut
are these 'statements found only in
truth imprinted upon every region of j
man's natural and spiritual lite, ana
on none more deeply than on his lan
guage? It needs no more than to open
a dictionary and to cast one's eye
thoughtfully down a few columns and
we shall find abundant confirmation
of this sadder and sterm-r estimate of
man's moral and spiritual condition.
How else shall we explain this long
catalogue of words, having nil to do
with sin, r with sorrow, or both? How
came they there? We may be quite
sure that they were not invented with
out being needotl, that they have each
correlative in the world of realities.
Open the first letter of the slphalef
what means this "all," this ":siax,"
these dH?p and long-drawn s:hs of
humanity which encounter us there?
And then follow words such as these:
Al'rtiction, agony, anguish, assassin,
a! heist, avarice, and a score more of
words of like import. That man has
fallen, and dri ply fallen, we nerd no
more than hi: language to prove.
Among the creatures of the devil no

We frequently hear men say,
when any measure looking toward
reform is proposed, "Men are not
educated up to that yet." It is
practically saying to the husband
man, "You shall not eat of the fruit
of your toil until 3-011 can explain

man vlio is educated in t'oe rinci
ples of honesty and whose integrity
no one doubts, and say to him,
"Thou shalt not steal," and in
stantH he will regard it as nn af
front or a pleasantry. He will tell
you that he has no notion of vio
lating that law, that it is intended
for the man who is not educated

there is stealing in America to-day.
God did not wait until the Jew s
had received this higher education;
if He he had there would have
been no law passed. Such reason
ing is so transparently false that a
child can detect it. It makes an
archy the source of a pure citizen
ship and ignorance an apology for
crime and lawlessness.
If the voters of Linn county
have anv regard for merit, Peter i
Hume of Brownsville will be our
next Senator. Official merits are !
but the outgrowth of civic qualifi- j
cations. Judged by the highest!
standard of citizenship, Mr. Hume f
has everything to recommend him i
to the voters of Linn county. He
is a warm friend of the laboring!

no clique or ring.
Waiving all claims to
judgment, we believe that the se
curing of the standard-gauge road
through Lebanon depends upon the
enterprise of her citizens.
A good rule for voters to observe
at the coming election would be
for every "man to vote his honest
convictions and not the sentiments
of someone else.

says FIT he means it, and he is not
going to send you out of his psilatial
stores with those abominable monsters
in leather which you may possibly
find in other establishments not a

look as though you were a new arrival
from Chicago. No, do not make any

How as to Clething.
When the purs was emptied, as
above succinctly act forth, Montague
was compelled to open another bar'l
for the purpose of securing to our cus
tomers the latest novelties in fine suits
as well as those adapted to every -day
wear. We are now opening up our
elegant designs in Orrron City Cloth

elegant-fitting garments, at scandal
ously low prices.
Montague has had over forty years
exjierienee iu selling goods, twenty of
which were spent among you right
here in Lebanon, and he now proposes
to spend the evening of his life in giv
ing to one and ull sueli prices as the
Boms Granger of Linn county never
dreamed of. Make Montsguo know
you are going to pay cash down and
no grumbling (the chronic grumblor is
a despicable creature), and ho will
make prices to you all right.
MONEY ONCE MORE.
The people who promised to pay up
by the 1st of last January and failed to
connect may find their accounts w here
it will not please them. Montague
does not propose to waste valuable
time in huv.ting up these delinquents,
but will send the most forcible collec
