At the morning service last Sunday
at the Unitarian church in the place of
the usual sermon, Mr. MscDonaid took
up some of the writings of Dr. Samuel
M. Crothers. He read quite extensive
ly from one of his most profound es
says, "lhe bpirit of Democracy."
This splendid essay is based on the
Christmas Carlo " by Dickens, and
breathes the spirit of modern times in
much the same way that Dickens ex
presses the spirit of his day. In place
of the former Chritmas spirit which
consisted in giving to the poor, today
the Christmas spirit would send us all
on the greater task of eliminating the
necessity for giving to the poor.
Mr. Crothers' essay calls for the pre
vention of the widespread injustice
leading to the division of rich and poor,
strong and weak, wipe and ignorant,
and of bringing that better day when
no longer the poor need depend on the
rich and the weak on the strong.
"Are you really enthusiatic about so
equalizing oppnrtunites that by and by
you shall be surrounded by happy self
reliant people who have no need of your
benefactions?" "It is all right to give
a poor devil a turkey. But are you
anxiouB that he shall have as good a
chance as you have to buy a turkey for
himself? Do you know sometimes 1
think that it is time for someone to
write a new Christmas Carol, a carol
that will make the world know how
people are feeling and some of the best
things they are doing these days. It
should be founded on justice and not on
mercy." And this new Christmas
Carol might have for its theme, "Wish
him to be thine equal 1" To many of
us it seems that Mr. Crothers haa writ
ten the new carol.
