THE RUINS OF EPHESUS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 26 June 1875

THE RUINS OF EPHIIESUS. Thie doors were of cypress, the staircase was a single vine. Praxitoles was'the sculptor of tile altar, and many statues, one of gold, stood around the place; but that of the goddess Diana wits a rude wooden figure, supposed to have fillen firom heaven, and held in great veneration. Two fiamous Ephesian painters, Apolles and Pal'rrhasius, had hung their fihuest pictures oi the walls. Such was the celebrated structlurec, of which various little models, in silver, ivory, or jasper, were made by" tradesmen liko Demetrius (as mintioned in Ithd Acts of the Apostles), fIor sale to people visiting the city. ''This custom reminds us, by-the-way, of what may now he seen in Papal Rome. The goddes worshipped at Ephesus was not the virgin huntreoss, austerely graceful, whom the Greek poets conceived; but a gross Asiatic impersounation of Vital Force, of all vegetable ind aunial lifo; a monstrous female giving'suek to many strango nurslings at once, from her numerous brea...

COMMERCIAL LAXITY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 26 June 1875

COMMERCIAL LAXITY. ALTHOUGH the generality of co - mercial men are reputed to be wise$) serpents, we have reason to believe tbht they are not invariably as innocent a doves. Some of them appear to think that as everything is fair in war, so, likewise, is anything fair in trade. The practices of over-reaching a customer, and of driving a good bargain, are equally considered to be rather merit orious than otherwise; for, not only is adulteration resorted to whenever practicable, but, in nine cases out of ten, the cost of an article is notoriously in excess of its value. The principle of a fair day's wages for a fair day's work, may be parodied, to serve the customs of the age, into "No doubt the pleasure is as great,% Of being cheated as to cheat." Some people enter into business with a borrowed capital, and having un avoidable engagements to meet at regular intervals, they consider . it convenient to make their customers pay the interest. In all such cases, where trade is not so bris...

THE INTELLECTUAL LIFE. CANADIAN MONTHLY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 3 July 1875

THE INTELLECTUAL LIFE. CANADIAN MONTHLY. The intellectual lifo should be a life of pationce--pationce in gathering know. ledge, pationce in drawing condclsions, and patience in waiting for results. It may be hard sometimes to reconcile enthusiasm with patience, but they may lo reconciled, and they must be, if the hbest results are to be achleved. The patience of the believers in a cause is no less a presage of victory than their enthusiasm; ndeeood, of the two it is the fuller of promiso. Let cynics or fatal lsts say what they will, the hope of a rational ordering of human society, the thope of some future harmony of humnn heolidf', does spring etertnal itn the hIlnan breast. And the life Is one that umakoth not ashamed; those who possess it mustr:aYdvrwit, and must work towards its realization, Not only in the prophet-minds of every' age' has it asserted itself, but in,: the: minds; of the people!at large there has' ever been a di? fbreboding of some'great good in store for' humani...
