In conversing with a well knonw citizen the other day, the matter of churches,- religion etc, were commented upon and he stated that he had a tendenacy to and wanted to live a better life and was willing to embrace an opportunity to do so at any time. He also stated that he did not belong to any church and sometimes would think he would go and unite with a church, but when he would go and see some of the head leaders of the church be so pious and appear so sanctified, and the next day in their business transactions, not hesitate for a minute to tr ick and rob some poor man of his entire life's earnings, and chuckle with glee to hear him beg,—and that churches composed of such professed relegion alone, held him back. Such being the fact, a question arises as to whether or not a man would get any consideration in the hereafter for staying out of a church under such a condition of facts. It ought to be. that there could be a few men in every community, who were devoid of greed, so that the could live a moral and religious life and conduct their business in an honest straight forward gentlemanly way and be living models for the entire community to strive to follow, as it it a great blow indeed, for a man to picture out his model of a perfect gentleman, and as you grow up and come in touch with him, to find him nothing more than a grand rascal, who would not even hesitate to tear out your very heart to satisfy his greed. Of course there are many exceptions to this trend of thought, which only implies to where you have a blasted ideal, and haven't you experienced as much. The Supreme Court has held the Beardsley law valid and knocks out Breweries from selling direct to the consumer. The present Judges in the Supreme court are not taking very much into consideration a mans thirst or his pocket-book. As a few days ago the Supreme court held that the 3 mile gravel road law was unconstitutional and tied up about $4,000,000 among pike contractors throughout the state; McCormick & Miller, who were building the Burkhart pike, west of town, will loose about $1,500 unless the next legislature, or a special session, can do something there will not be many more pike roads built, as the only law they can now be built under, is for every one living within 2 miles of a pike to pay for it.
