The Christian Advocate
Nothing diverts attention from the subject more quickly than an incongruous mixture of figures in a speech. Not long since we heard a minister of the Gospel, of large fame, so mingle figures in the midst of his sermon as to practically create a new animal, of which neither the science of zoology nor the prophet Ezekiel in his imaginative excursions into that field knows anything. We respect him too much to point the moral with his name. But a Western editor says, "We once heard Mrs. — eulogize Mrs. Stanton, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Susan B. Anthony as follows: 'These are the women who laid themselves down in the dust, as it were, to form a bridge over which you and I might go dry-shod.'"
The use of different figures in a protracted discourse is proper enough, but one should never lose sight of the natural relations of things used as figures.
