Grass Lake News: Last Suuday morning notwithstanding favorable weather, attendance at publio worship in our cherches was not wbat should bave been. Probably one cause was that people were resting and reouperating for tbeir opening harvest work. But tbe same rest could have been had in the pews, to say nothing of tbe mental and spiritual refreshment attendant thereou. Say, folks, go to oburoh and thereby draw a bealthfal line between your owu and pagan oustotns. It looks bad for pnblinans and sinners to stay away from God's house, but it looks far worse for tbose who profess sacred things to stay at home on Sonday in indolent repose. If a professor of diviDe graoe ignores or goes back on his Christian vows, he is full of hyprocisy and a ruanner of unclaenness. When Sunday comes scour your neck and ears, put on a clean dickey and go to the sanctuary like a civilized human being. It will do you good, do the preacher good and at tbe same time set a proper example before the world.
