THE MORNING CALL.
Vol. X. No. 172.
PLEASANTLY REPORTED FOR
"Never a daisy that grows, but a mystery
guideth the growing;
Never a river that flows, but a majesty
scepters the flowing;
Never a Shakespeare that soared, but a
stronger than he did enfold him ;
Nor ever a prophet foretells, but a mightier
seer hath foretold him.
“Back of the canvas that throbs the paint
er is hinted and bidden ;
Into the statue that breathes the soul of
the sculptor is bidden :
Under the joy that is felt be the infinite
issues of feeling;
Crowning the glory revealed is the glory
that crowns the revealing.
“Great are the symbols of being, but that
which is symboled is greater;
Vast the create and beheld, but vaster the
Back of the sound broods the silence, back
of the gift stands the giving;
Back of the hand that receives thrill the
sensitive nerves of receiving.
“Space is as nothing to spirit, the deed is
outdone by the doing;
The heart of the wooer is warm, but warm
er the heart of the wooing;
And up from the pits where these shiver,
and up from the heights where those
Twin voices and shadows swim starward,
and the essence of life is divine.’’

In a recent criticism of a conaprev
hensive book on economic questions
it was stated that the book was full of
‘ moral earnestness’' The reviewer
did not add that the argument of the
book was badly constructed and full of
reiterations. Its style was witty and
forcible, but the exposition was not
convincing. The economist who
grounds bis conclusions on reason
and a consensus of proved facts is not
convinced by moral earnestness or by
wit. He looks for logical argument
and statistics from one who asks con
sideration for a new position on
economic questions. Unquestionably
moral earnestness is the best basis for
a book or for acharacter, but it-is un
practical, and often mischievous, un
less it is trained and guarded by rea
son and common sene. To comprehend
and admire moral earnestness one
must have some appreciation of moral
ity, must have somewhat of a moral
nature one’s self, just as to enjoy logic
one’s mind must be logical. Moral
earnestness and enthusiasm are mean
ingless to a mind hide-bound with
narrow dogmas and effete traditions,
as it is useless to talk of premises
and postulates to a savage, and as it is
foolish to stand at the head of the
stairs and expect the creeping baby to
reach you. If you want the baby to
come up, you must go down and
teach him to climb the first step; you
must first train the undeveloped mind
to understand reasoning, and the
bigoted mind must be pierced by a
soul-ray, before it can ever respect
“moral earnestness.” Before such a
change, the man adjudges the “moral
enthusiast” to bs an ordinary lunatic,
and from bis point of view he is right.
In fine, one must meet people on the
plane of their development, if one
would help them rise to a higher one,
and moral earnestness without reason
or judgment is, more often than not,
fatal to its own cause.

Another great discovery has been

death seemed imminent. For three
months she coughed incessantly, and
could not sleep. She finally discover

of us a bottle of Dr. King’s New Dis
covery for Consumption, and was so
much relieved on taking first dose,
that she slept all night ; a-'d with two
bottles, has been absolutely cured

The spring styles this year are es
pecially dainty in coloring, make and
general effect. There is a softening
and taming down of crude coloring
both in gowns and in bats. All shades
of all colors are seen, but the prevail
ing tints ars much more subdued
than they have been for several years,
and there are a greater harmony and
greater refinement in everything. The
skirts all are made close and tight
fitting, but are so cut that they flare
about the feet and allow plenty of
width for a graceful walk.
