      The Rev. Walter Inglis
      , of Ayr, calling at the manse, would often end up an interesting conversation with " Weel, I ll awa tae my auld howf" this was to Thomas Dalgliesh's, where he usually stayed when visiting Galt They were kindred spirits and loved largely the same things with the same fervor One of the distinctive notes of the old Scotch life is the unique place given to the Church and the ministry. These are not so subordinated that they lose all significance; the very opposite, they are lifted into the light and made conspicuous. They are ruling elements in the life. Hence the love for and the respect paid to the minister. Hence the truly Old Testament feeling about the house of God: "I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem." Often I have heard Mr. Dalgliesh speak of the time he went to church in the early days, near Ayr, and sat on rough boards set on the ends of logs, and no stove heating the house, even in the midst of winter. Yet, he affirmed, they never felt cold. Ah, I imagine it was a case like that recorded in the Presbyterian Church, Galt Gospel: " Did not our hearts burn within us, while He talked with us by the way, and while He opened to us the Scriptures ?" The Word was precious in those days. It was heard only occasionally and was greatly desired and prized. He would often, too, compare the former days with these latter ones and mark the changes that had come. The rise of temperance feeling he thought specially significant. " I have seen a pail full of whiskey in the grocery store, and at the end of the rigs on the field that was being harvested, and at a barn raising. I have seen it stand there with a tin cup to dip it out with and take a drink, and nobody thought anything of it then; but now that has gone. It could hardly be done now. Ah, sir, the world moves! " And no doubt it does. But how long shall men be under the necessity of fighting that blighting curse, the drink traffic, ere it is driven from the earth? How long? Mr. Dalgliesh had lived a toilsome life and when sickness came it quickly subdued the once powerful frame and laid him low. He sank slowly, growing gradually weaker till he slept his last sleep, and a good man was missed from among us.2a
