What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Church. . £ How should wo keep the Sabbath. Toxt: Mark 2: 27. The Sabbath was made for man. The Sabbath and the home are the two oldest institutions of the world. They are co eternal with man. Upon them all are founded all that relates to the good of the human familv. Doslroy either and the whole race is ruined. Why do we obsorve one day in seven as a day of rest and worship?' The constitution of man demands it, physically, mentally and spiritually. The Sabbath is grounded upon man’s needs. When the biblo tells us to remember the Sabbath beoause God rested on that day, it does not mean to imply that that is a reason for keeping it, but that that is an exam ple of what we should do. The Sab bath is for man, that is, it is given him because his nature and welfare domands it. Why do wo observe any special day as the Sabbath? Why do we keep the first day of the week? Be cause it commemorates the resuirec- tion of Christ. The Jews kept Sat urday or the seventh day of the week, because it commemorated their deliverance from Egyptian bondage. But both Jews and Christiana ob serve the Sabbath as tin institution because the Sabbath was made for man, and it was made for him because his welfato requires it. The body and mind need one day’s rest in seven. The rest of the night alone doos not keep up the energy of the system. When Traves tried to abolish the Christian religion it changed the Sabbath from one day’s rest in seven to one in ten. But their experience proved that' their method did not furnish enough rest. Armies and business corporations have provod that both men and animals will do more work by resting on the Sabbath than by working seven days in tho week. Even maahinery that rests one seventh of the time will do more work than by continuous run ning. The spiritual olement ia man needs the Sabbath as a day of worship. No man can be spiritually minded who does not pray daily and daily lift up his thoughts to God in meditation. But this is not enough. Ho needs to meet weokly with his neighbors in the public worship of God. Christianity is dependent upon the Sabbath for tho spread of the truth as it is in Jesus. No community can be christianized, and no Christian community can long remain Christian that does not regularly assemble weekly and engago in prayer and song, and listen to the reading of the scriptures and the preaching of the gospel. Tho better a community obsorves the Sabbath the greater hold Christianity has upon it. Montana is everywhere known among tho leaders of the different denomination as one of the most difficult places in which to build up tho church of Christ, and one of tho great difficulties is known to bo tho fact that so many of the people of this state spend the Sab bath in work and pleasure. The now testament lays down no rules for Sabbath observance because no set of rules would apply to all places and times. But the spirit of scripture teaches that all work save that of necessity and. charity should bo laid aside, and that no rest in the way of quiet indoors or outside recre ation should interfere with meeting for public worship. We know by the history of the early church recorded iu the books of the Acts and letters of the apostles that the early Chris tians assembled regularly upon the Sabbath'for the worship of God. How should we in Choteau spend the Sabbath? First we should re gard the Sabbath as a precious gift of God. We should not think it a duty only to observe it, but a privi lege also. Then y e should not have the custom o f remaining up so late Saturday night that we cannot g?t up in time Sunday morning to get ourselvos and families ready for church and Sunday school. When we do this we ruin tho day for our selves and help ruin it for tho com munity by our absence from church. We should lay our work aside also. It is a great wrong to ourselves and the community to spend tho Sabbath doing little odd jobs. Sunday is misspent when regarded ae a day of pleasure. I know there are many people who spend six days indoors, to whom a Sunday outing is pleasant and healthful. But tho question resolves itself into this: Is it better to put in all day Sunday iu pleasant recreation and neglect tho spiritual uplifting of ourselves and the community by non attendance upon the appointed means of graco or is it hotter to seek first tho higher spiritual good of our souls, and thou if essential to the health of the body to spend some timo in outdoor recreation ? Many pooplo misapprehend the real object of tho moans of grace Some think tho only valuo of a relig ious service is the hearing of a great oratorical, logical sermon. And it is impossible for the average preachor to meet such a demand twice a week the year round. The only object of preaching is to teach people how to be Christians. People should go to church not only to hear from the preacher the duties of life, but to engage in the worship of God, to pray and meditate and to catch tho inspir ation of a congregation of neighbors assembled to confess their sins, seok divine pardon, and obtain more of the divine life. I can not understand how so many poople who have been reared in tho best of Christian homes, whore tboir parents have boon careful to givo them the bonefit of Christian teaching, can be so careless about the religious training of their children. They lot them do as they please about church and Sunday school. They know that they do not let thorn have their own way aboutattondaneo upon tho public schools or anything elso that portains to their welfare. God will hold you responsible for this awful neglect. It is so easy in a now country to neglect the Sabbath. In tho first place we have moved out of our old homo and are amoug strangers, and going to church hero is different from going in an old homo where we have k'uown everybody from infancy. Wo may not have found tho sarao denom ination hero as we wore reared in, perhaps the congregations are smaller, we may not liko the preaching or there may bo somo pooplo in tho con gregation that we do not like. But what are wo going to say in tho day of judgment when askod why wo did not seok to make tho community in which wo lived more religious? If we were as careless about our material aa wo are about our spiritual welfare, we would somo of us bo in the poor house. I have heard hun dreds of excuses in tho last year for neglect|of religious duties that no man would think of giving in busi ness matters. Some one has come in to visit, you don’t feel as well as usual, some member of the family is ill, you have been working hard and are tired. You know theso excuses would not stand in business and if one is not as careful in his dealings with God as with his business inter ests it is presumtious for him to ex pect to hear the \well done good aud faithful servant” Suppose all tho people of Choteau should bogin to observe the Sabbath as a day of rest and worship, what a shower of spiritual blessing would be poured upon us. How Christianity would take root and righteousness spring up! Kins: Not Suprem e . A BARGAIN, I have a complete 12 foot bar outfit iu good condition for sale cheap. W x . H odoskiss / Choteau, Mont, Although monarch of the greatest realm tho world has ever known, King Edward of Great Britain must admit to certain restrictions upon his personal conduct that are not imposed upon his humblest subject. If the owner of tho biggest and most valu able business in Great Britain wore to writo to tbo king offering him a half share in all tho profits from that busi ness for nothing, it would be impossi ble for tho occupant o f tho throne to accopt this genorous proposal. Just as no clergyman or officer may com bine business with his profession, so tho king must not become partner with a subject. Noither can ho bo a tenant or hold anything “ in service” from one of his sjbject8. Tho old law on this subjoct doclares this to be boneath the king’s dignity. He may. however, accept the post of executor under a will, but may notact. Ho must ap point somo ono to do tho woik for him, for ho is supposed to have his hands too full with state duties to at- tond to trivial private affairs .Although as may bo known, tho monarch may dispense with his cabinot and most of his civil sorvauts, yet ho cannot dis charge the privy council, but is obliged tocall their aid in deliberation. What is more, it is against the British constitution for tho king to preside over tho privy council. Queen Anne was the last occupant of tho throne to do so. And although tho original appointment of mombors is a royal priyiloge, jot tho king may not select any foreigner—that is, ono born out of tho kingdom and not of British parentage— to servo. In the reign of George III tho privy council discussed how far the king’s mandates must bo obeyed’ by his subjects, and camo to the con clusion that tho law of the land would not pormit tho king toprohibit now buildings being erected in Lon don, nor his forbidding the making of starch from wheat. Tho king can not oxompt any olass of his subjects from duties imposed upon them by act of parliament, This was proved when a charter was grantod to a cer tain college of physicians exempting them from militia tax. After a big lawsuit the judgment was in this in stance agaiust the crown. Nor is the king at liberty to compel any ono to lond him money. Tho petition of right which contained this stipulation moant it as a strong hint that taxes wore in future to bo collected by the ordors of parliament not of tho crown. Although tho king may pardon a malefactor, ho cannot send him or any man to prison of his own ‘ authority, nor has ho tho power of lifo or death over any of his subjects. Ho has, in fact, no legal power, for he moy not appoint a justice or any othor comis sion of tho peace. Tho high sheriff is tho only functionary of tho kind whom he, personally and unaided, may appoint. Tho king may make a will dealing with his private property, but, though during lifo the crown jeweb are his property, he cannot will them away. If he marry a Roman Catholic, a king of England ia liable to lose his throne. It is nocessaty that he bo a momber of the Established Church of England, and that he do not ovado any conditions of the coronation oath. office to be carried back to America - in the mails. The postage rate under the laws o f Great Britain for such circularsis half a penny for two ounces to , all countries in the postal union, but! in * * the United States the postage is two cent equivalent to one penny. It is therefore, obvious that busi ness firms who send out thousands o f circulars each week can save money by shipping them in bulk at a Tow rate of freight to Liverpool and than haring them sent back to the United States. The attention of the treasury officials was called to this matter by an official in the Liverpool postoffice, who noticed that several large con signments o f American trade circulars addressed to parties m the United States had been posted in Liverpool. He investigated the matter, and found S * that the practice had been, in vogue for some time. The result of his in vestigation is that immediate steps have been taken to stop the business. Mrs. Luetgert A p p e a rs Again. Chicago, April 17.—The Chronicle says : An apparently demented woman, bolievod by many who have seen her to be the wife of Adolph Luetgert (supposed to have been murdered by her husband), is being cared for at the Alma Mott Home, 589 Austin avenue. For the supposed murder of his wife Luetgert was sentenced to the penitentiary to serve a life sentence, and died in prison. The woman, who gives her name as Mary Robbins, answers all the de scriptions o f the supposedly murdered Mrs. Luetgeit. Tbo mental condition of the woman is such that no comprehensive exam ination can be made. When asked who Bhe is she becomes rambling in her talk and can answer no questions intelligibly, it is said. No effort will be spared to make an identification. Ever since the trial there have been persistent rumors that the pnfe of the conyicted sausage- maker was living, and there hâve been several false reports that she had been found alive. Beef Cattle S c a c e . Spokane, Wash., April 18—Not in thirteen years has beef been quoted as high in the local markets as it is today. Quotations today were 9 oents 'per pound in wholesale lots, and butchers say it will probably reach t % 10 cents before long. Scarcity ia giv en as the whole cause of the jump. Butchers have men scouring tho country in all directions purchasing everthing they can get. -It is also reported that buyers from Portland and San Francisco are sending pur chasing agents into Washington, northern Idaho and western Montana. Grain fed cattle have all beea sol'd and only range cattle remain. Veal is very scarce and pork also advanced. H a n sbrough’s Indian Story. Am ericans Were Saving Postage. It seems hardly credible that busi ness circulars of firms in the United States should be sent to England to be mailed here to addresses in the United Statos for the purpose of sav ing postage,yet this is tho actual fact, according to the Herald correspon dent at London. This curious state o f affairs is said to have been revealed at Liverpool by treasury instructions to the cus toms officials loeated there. Those officers have been ordered to seize large consignments of circulars sent by business men in the United States to their Liverpool agents. These firms receive circulars in bulk, which are then addressed, have a half-penny stamp put upon each and are dumped into the Liverpool poet- . Senator Hansbrough o f Norte Dako ta, tells a funny Btory of an Indian on tho Devil’s Lake reservation. The Indian had paid a white man some money and wanted a receipt. In vain the white man told him than a receipt was unnecessary. “Me munt have paper to show owe white man noth ing.” said the Indian? \W h y?” “If me g o to heaven,” replied the Indian, 1 , “good Lord ask Ingun if he pay his debts. Ingun say yes. Good-Lord, ask Ingun where is receipt, an’ what Ingun going to do then? Ingun can’t go all over hell looking for you.” The white man wrote the receipt at once. NOTICE.
