The right and duty of a State to take thought for and safeguard the
physical, mental and moral conditions of its citizens, to protect the weak
againstthe natural encroachment of the strong—these can never change save
to take deeper, stronger hold upon the thought and conscience of the race,
as it grows toward a richer human sympathy and a fuller sense of responsi
bility.—Southern Christian Advocate (Spartanburg, S. C.)

The Golden Age for March 1, 1906.
For Literary Circles and Lyceums.
(To Encourage Young People: For the purpose of stimulating young people
everywhere, but especially in villages and rural communities, to organize
and sustain literary circles and debating societies, THE GOLDEN AGE
will give the first dozen books to any new society whose officers send cer
tificate that they are prepared to receive and properly care for a circu
Believing, as all observers must do, that well sustained lyceum courses
and circulating libraries work untold good in developing higher tastes and in
creating lofty ideals in a community, it shall be the purpose of The Golden
Age to publish each week notes and items tending to the forming and foster
ing of circulating libraries and lyceum courses.
It is further intended to cull wherever possible some of the choicest
flowers from the rhetorical gardens grown in the minds of our prominent
Southern lecturers and to give such extracts in this department in order that
our readers may judge for themselves of the advantages offered by the lyceum
In line with this intention, therefore, it is fitting that one of our first
extracts be one from the pen of Bob Taylor, of Tennessee—a man whose
wonderful power of imagry and whose beauty of thought and expression have
held in thrall thousands of listeners throughout the country; a man who,
although he held the governor’s chair of his native state, still craved to reach
his people from the higher vantage ground of the platform and who now con
ducts a successful monthly magazine—it is from the editorial columns of this
magazine that the following excerpt is given:
Light and Love.
As unto the world the light is, so unto the soul is love. Light is the an
gel of the beautiful. It unveils the universe and reveals to mortal eyes its
glory. Its flight is in every firmament, its pulse beat is in the trembling
stars. It dips its wings in the ocean and sprinkles the earth with rain and
dew. It bursts through the rifted storm and kisses the falling raindrops and
conjures them into bands of glory on the bosom of the cloud. It weaves the
shining texture of blade and leaf and adorns the fields and builds the solemn
temples of the forest. It finds a mirror of enchantments in every glassy stream
and we look down on fantastic visions of phantom rocks and ferns and wild
flowers and trees and floating clouds. The sky is its palette, the world is its
canvas, its touch is the touch of Divinity. It paints its miracles of color on
land and sea, and hangs in the distant air that gossamer veil of dreamy haze
that softens the landscape and wraps the rugged mountains.
Love is the ministering angel of life. Its warmth and light are in man’s
happiest thoughts, its wings flutter in his sweetest dreams. It sheds its rap
turous influences on the humblest pathway and smooths and softens the
hardest pillow’. It hangs a bow in every cloud and sets a star on every
horizon. It sweeps the harp strings of human hearts and they thrill with
every human passion. It steals a poem from a rose, a song from a bird, a
melody from a brook; it gathers a whisper from the wind, a sigh from the
sea, a prayer from the stars; it catches music from the lips of the morning
and somber beauty from the jeweled night; it touches all the tender chords
of feeling and exalts the soul to higher planes of happiness. It flows like a
flood of light through the poetry of Milton and we tread upon the violets of
Eden, the Adams and Eves of Love’s first morning. It built the ideals and
shaped the dreams of Shakespeare and made Romeo and Juliet the oracles of
love in whose divine presence all the world are lovers. It touched the harp
of Burns and warmed his genius into the flower of song whose fragrance
will linger forever on the bonnie banks and braes of Ayr. It is the mirror
of the beautiful in the stream of life reflecting all the shores and all the
heavens of the soul.
Thomas E. Watson, scholar, author, editor and lecturer, has also recently
established a monthly periodical, and the following exquisite lines are taken
from an editorial utterance. It is suggestive of the thinking mind to consider
the high ideal of duty which these fines foreshadow, and among so much
barren philosophy, the pure expression of the “Creed of Duty” is helpful
and inspiring. Mr. Watson says:
“When I think of the awful punishments wreaked upon those who dared
to denounce wrongs in the olden days, when nearly everything was wrong, I
seek in vain for words to express my profound admiration for the courage of
those who gave their lives for the Cause of the Right. No such heroism has
ever been shown on the field of battle as has been shown by the martyrs of
“The frown of kings could not silence them, nor the curse of popes turn
them. Prisons could not quench their fires, nor could the rack break aught
but their bones. As they marched to the block they stepped light—as pioneers
leading the free to a great New World. As they mounted the scaffold, they
rose, step by step, proudly, like conquerors leading men upward and onward.
* * * * No man holds his life for himself alone, but holds its splendid
gifts as trustee—a trustee who must come to a account some day with the
Most High. * * * *
“The man who strives to be right, and to do right is, after all, the only
citizen who can rest under the infinite comfort of an approving conscience.
“As legatee of the patriots of the past and trustees of the present and
the future, let us stand firm in the defense of the right. Let us preach its
gospel to whosoever will hear. And, as a mere matter of honesty and patriotic
duty, let us speak as we believe, vote as we speak, and hold aloft, always,
the higher and better ideals to which the human race must strive if it would
move onward and upward.”
