"DESERTS THE CREED OF HIS FATHERS." DEAR COSMOS,"—Though not in thorough agreement with Mr Jarratt's assertion that a Welshman, by entering a public-house, deserts the creed of his forefathers, still your argument that; because Christ would have been born in an inn had there been room, therefore a Christian is justified in visiting public-houses, is not applic- able to the present case. The inns or khans of Palestine were totally different from the public- houses of our country. Archdeacon Farrar, in his Life of Christ," says, "They are totally devoid of even the most ordinary furniture. The traveller may bring his own carpet if he likes, may sit cross-legged upon it for his meals, and may lie upon it at night. As a rule, too, be must bring his own food, attend to his own cattle, and draw his own water from the neighbouring spring. He would neither expect nor require attendance, and would pay only the merest trifla for the ad- vantages of safety, shelter, and a floor on which to lie." Modern inns are established solely for the sale of intoxicating drinks. No one thinks of j entering a public-bouse for food or rest alone now, I and since the sale of intoxicating drinks is their I only object. it would only be consistent with the principles of Scripture that Christians should not visit them. The greatest enemy to practical re- ligion is intemperance, and until the churches of our land have driven it from our country—until professors of religion have washed their handa clean-of the drinkotraffic-we cannot expect our country to be a sober and prosperous one.-I am, & £ RECHABITK.
