Three French Cabinet ministers resigned
���Ouiiuet, Angers and Curron,���because
ofthe government's proposal to defer the
introduction oi remedial legislation until

upon receiving positive assurance from

The 100,000 brick kilo ol Mr. W. Walter h is been burnt, aiul opined, and the
result is very satisfactory, The brick are
light but appear strong nnd serviceable.
They compile very favorably with brick
manufactured on the coast. As a trial
wc must pronounce it a success. Piepar
alions fur another "burn" are now being
made and even better results may be expected. Mr. Waller has labored under
very great difficulties, He has nol had
the means to do just as ho would like, a
condition not peculiar lo himself. Costlv
machinery 10 grind or crush some hard
clays in lhe neighbourhood would have
been exceedingly useful. He has been
compelled in use clav which he could
manipulate and 10 procure il among
stumps, etc. Tlie opinion nl those who
know nothing about bl'ick has bun
against him. The fools are not all dead
and some of them have unfortunately immigrated toilus section. They are of the
class thai distrust everything that isn't a
thousand miles away and have reason to
distrust everything that at all depends on
them. But in spite, of all obstacles these
are ���11 good serviceable article and
more aud better will follow. And the.
brick making industry mav be regarded
as established ill our midst and will lie of
incalculable advantage to this community greatly cheapening an article of ordinary and constant use. One of the first

brick will be the chimney of the ncw

Omaha despatch says; A remarkable theology u alleged to hu advocated hy the Kev, John Morrow, who
came to Omaha several years ago
Irom Pittsburg, The statement was
published In Omaha on the authority
<>I the Hev. Charles Savidge of the
l'oople's Church. Savidge has beeu
hero for ten years, lie declares Morrow has gathered around him a. congregation to whom ho preaches that
it is devout to appear in church devoid of clothing. Morrow went to
Peoria, in., Monday night. Mr. Savidge says :
"This matter lias come to my attention, and I think ought to be
made public. The Kev. .lohn Morrow
is a resident oi Pittsburg, Pa. lie
has lived there for many years. Ue
belonged to the Presbyterian Church,

evangelist; Miss Carrie .Judd, founder oi tho Faith Home in' Buffalo;
Miss Slsson, of Betbshand, Loudon. 1
was prepared to treat him as a Christian brother and minister, especially
as I saw ho was a man of deep
���scholarship and thorough acquaintance with thc Scriptures. He , has
been visiting in this city for the
last three or four years occasionally,
I attended only one of his* meetings.
That was a Bible reading. I was
well pleased with it. There was
nothing objectionable aliout it. "When
he came to tliis city two years ago
I entertained him ono evening in my
home. I felt profited by his society,
"Lately I have noticed eome people
whose Judgment 1 highly respected
treated him -with great coldness. I
inquired and was told of his peculiar
theology, and Monday called on liim.
He admitted lie taught that unique
doctrine. 1 asked him if he practised
it. Ho said he had. I asked him
what authority he had. He said he
found it all through thc Bible. 1 asked
liim "what good could come from the
teaching of such doctrine. He s*iid it
would provo that shame and fear and
passion were dead and there were
probably other benefits that Cod
alone knew. I told bim I hoped he
waa honest, but I waa sure he was n
deluded man and that I ahould oppose
liim with all the power I had- I later
repeated to a woman who attended
liis meetings the questions i had
asked him and his reply. She appeared not to be surprised. She said
she had believed the doctrine and had
practised it. To my certain knowledge others ha^e practised it. Mr.
Morrow went away from this city
Monday night. He may return at
any time. He lias a number of correspondents in this city. Two of our
Omaha girls have been In his Bible
achool in Pittsburg- I believe ho
ought to be opposed in such teaching
and practice and that as a city wo
should fear him as much as if he came
to burn our houses aud murder our

though much averse to talking admitted she Jiad had converse with

truthful and Godlike man, She said
sho horsed hud not participated in
the practlcei. She was not yet in a
position to pass upon tho truthfulness or falsity of Mr. Morrow's opinion- Sho --stated positively that she
would say nothing against him or his
teachings, because there might ho

She stated that she know Mrs. Christensen was a thorough Christian and
pure, and believed Christensen was

Pittsburg despatch says: The Kev.
John Morrow, uow in Omaha, is Relieved to be the samo man who in tho
spring of 1802 fled from Pittsburg
after almost breaking up tho Bethany
Home, at No. lia Center avenue, of
which ho was chaplain. Bethany
Home is a (school for advanced students of the scriptures and Is attended
principally by women, tlie founder of It
being Miss Mary Moorhead, of tho
family of irou manufacturers of that
name. Morrow preached tho doctrine of greeting one another with a
brotherly kiss, finding hia authority In
St. Paul* When he waa found to be
practising what he preached, there
waa a great scandal. The chaplain
was asked to quit.     Many of    the
young women were sent to their
homes, and Morrows wife refused
longer to live with him. They had
two children. Morrow was heard
from some time after at Warren, Pa,,
where lie waa holding forth at the
home of three spinster sisters. He
had advanced then to the declaration
thot he was the special ngent of
Christ and hinted tbat he was Christ
himself. He never was accused of
any gross immorality, nnd Ills friends
took the charitable view that liis
mind had been affected by overstudy.
He hns not ueefi heard of here for a
long time.

A Peculiar Disease That Makea Trouble to
"People are losing their teeth from
a new cause nowadays," sniu a dental surgeon to a Washington Star
reporter. "It Is a complaint whicli
seems to nave become common only
within the last fifteen years or so.
'Recession of the gums,' it is called.
Tartar is deposited at au abnormal
rato, and this carbonate of lime
secreted from the saliva pushes tho
gums  back  from  the teeth.
'"It is a very peculiar disease. In
cases far advanced it can hardly bleared. That Is to say, tho tendency
to an accumulation of tartar cannot be stopped. All that can lie done
is to prevent It from accumulating
by scraping it away at intervals and
by medicinal applications to tho
gums. In an early stage, however,
the complaint is perfectly curable,
and tho tendency In most enses ean
be overcome. But much care and continual attention are required. Otherwise the person will have lost some
of his teeth by the timo he Is forty
years old, and after that thc rest
of ihem will go rapidly.
"Tho making 0! false teeth has arrived at great perfection, but at best
they are poor substitutes. As I have
said, this may be regarded as a new
disease. At all events, it is only iu recent years that it has become prevalent, it is Important that people's
attention should lie called to it. From
7 vears to 20 care must be taken of
the teeth, lest they decay. There is
little danger of that after the 20th
yoar is passed. But from that time
on one should look out for tartar.
A mouth affected iu the way 1 speak
of is almost worse than a badly decayed mouth. The trouble means certain loss of the teeth unless looked
out for nnd treated.
Thc annals of China record at, least
one conflict which has always, in tho
popular Chinese mind, boen identified
as the "teapot war." it seems that
for hundreds of years tho northwest
corner of the Chinese Empire has been
Inhabited by tribes of barbarians who,
dwelling In a mountainous district,
are, in virtue of that circumstance, of
a bold and turbulent disposition. Owing only a nominal allegiance to the
Emperor, they obey or not his commands, according as these are agreeable or otherwise to their wishes.
About the year 1050 a Chinese dignitary was travelling through their
country, and iu his train was borne
by oue of the menials a certain earthenware teapot that the manderln
looked upon as one of the most valuable of his possessions.
During the journey tho servitor who
bore this precious utensil became sep;
arated from the rest of the train and
fell into the clutches of the mountaineers, wlio smashed tho teapot to
pieces on a stone. The whole affair,
with proper additions, was roported
to the Emperor, who undertook to
avenge the injury dono to the pot,
and so made war on the mountaineers, the conflict lasting for nearly a
hundred years, nnd resulting in the
loss of over five hundred thousand

to tho scientific world. Travellers
who have passed through Styria havo
como baok with reports of this practice, saying that the people of that
country wero accustomed to takiug
a white mineral, which was arsenic.
That this was so was denied by
many, who said that tho mineral
taken was nothing more nor less thau
Chalk. Thero wad much discussion
over tho matter, and the subject
proved itself of such interest and Importance that scientific societies took
the question up aud investigated it,
and It was pretty well proven that
auch a usage dia exist, but not so
widespread as was generally supposed. Many physicians havo gono
there simply to investigate this practice of arsenic eating. While somo of
them have found out much about thu
custom, others havo como away no
wiser than they wont, owing to the
secrecy which exists among thoso addicted to the habit. As it Is against
the law to obtain arsenic without a
prescription from a* physician, of
course those who tlo so are anxious
to keep it quiet. There aro also found
among tho peasants of Salzburg aud
Tyrol those who follow tho same
practice, in these regions several
arsenic works aro situated, aud tho
only way tho etuplibyees can staaul
the poisonous fumes is by takiug the
drug internally, at first in small doses
aud gradually increasing tho doso
until the system tolerates large quantities.
It is probably from these arsenic
workers that the custom spread to
others, principally the lower classes,
as hunters, wood cleavers, (stable
grooms antl charcoal ��� burners. All
forme of arsenic are taken���the pure
arsenic, the red sulphide and the yellow sulphide, or orplment.
The arsenic eaters begin with a,
dose about tlie size of a pinhead, and
increase this amount gradually mull
they are taking a piece about the
-size of a pea.
Tho habit is generally begun at the
age of fifteen and continued up to the
ages of seventy and seventy-five. The
users of hidri, as arsenic is known
among the peasants, aro generally
long-Uveil people, but unless at tho
ago of fifty they commence to gradually discontinue the use of it, they
invariably ole a sudden death, and
the' fact that death occasionally occurs from poisoning by hidri eating
chows that even the Styriaus are nut
invincible to the deadly effects of this
Tho reason for this custom ts assorted by some to be lor their personal appearance, but the fact tiiat
the habit exists principally among the
male sex flispimes this. It is said by
the peasants themselves that it is
done to make them strong and healthy, and they really arc a strong aud
healthy people.
Enormous quantities of the drug arc
taken by some of them. In ono well-
autliontiented caso tho man. a manager of somo arsenic works, took
daily a dose of twenty-three grains,
each doso largo enough to kill several
men, unaccustomed to its use. Another tstrango thing about this ease
is, tho man began it first Ity taking
three grains, an amount which wo
would consider decidedly dangerous. Ou several occasions bo attempted to leave off taking the drug,
but was made violently ill. only to recover on resuming his usual allowance.

"I am now almost at tho foot ol
tho hill of life, having attained tho
70th year of my age, aud never during that tlmo havo I mado a statement moro willingly and conscientiously than now. My body has beea
tortured by pain for upwards of
thirty years, caused by rheumatism,
and thero nro thousands enduring a
like affliction that need not if they
wlould but heed my experience and
avail themselves of tho proper means
of roller. Tho disoaso first affected
my hip, and spread to my legs aud

neither trouble nor expense in seeking something to alleviate the pain.
The disease had made mo so helpless
that 1 was unable to put on my coat
and my handa and fingers wero
being twisted out of shape. There
seemed not tho shadow of a hope of
relief, nud vory naturally I became
discouraged and dislioartened, and
time after time havo I given up iu
despair. While in Arizona three years
ago I hoard of Dr. Williams' Pink
lills. I sent for six boxes in order
to give thom a fair trial. I followed
tho directions closely, aud by tho
t'nio the fourth box was finished tho pain had greatly lessened and I was much improved.
My     friends,   having     witnessed   the
wonderful effect upon my body eould
not help admiring the I'ink Fills, and
being about to leavo for tho eust, I
gavo tho remaining two boxes to

year after returning to this part and
i felt that to me I'ink I'ills woro onc
of the necessaries of life. Last spring
I procured a few boxes anddiavo been
taking them since with a very satisfactory effect am glad to say. Now
I feel liko a new man entirely free
from pain or stiffness of joint. I havo
a slight numbness of feet and half
way to tho knee, but am confident
that these pills will relieve this feeling. Although well advanced in
years, I am able nnd do walk many

"Prayer ts Letter than sleep! Prayer
is better than aleep 1 Prayer���is better
���thau sleep;"
The SLumd of the muezzin's greeting
to tho day mug clear and impressive
through the keen, early morning air
from the great Jlostpie of Fez, across
the spacious yard ul the Kusbah, filled
with tho Cadi's drowsy guards; along
the narrow streets, hung with the
ghostly habitations ol the faithful; iuto
the luttieed windowed, low ceilinged
sleeping rooms of the only hotel in the
"holy town of Fez," whero au infidel
may rest his thrke-cursed body with
tok-rnble siifety.
Tho only infidel thus favored ut the
time of which we write was lion. Ilere-
ward Trevayne. The cull to prayers
awoke him with a start. Springing
from his bed, he went to the window
overlooking the courtyard.
Impressed by tho solemnity of the call
of tho muezzin, and by the marvellous
beauty of the dawn, llerewnrd drew u
deep breath ; then, turning to dress, ho
murmured, aloud j
" 'Prayer is better than sleep.' Ah,
yes ; sometimes, no doubt. Looking out
'uf that window at the sunrise, tor instance. Hut just now it strikes mo
rather forcibly thut, so fur as oue individual is concerned, breakfast is better than either !"
Which -soliloquy was no sooner ended
than he shouted at the tup of his voice :
"YUSBU? 1    Yussuf 1"
The door ojumed almost Immediately,
and a smooth, swtirtliy-l'ticed Arab
glided noiselessly  into the room.
"Has tiio lord duke sufficiently rested
his honorable bones'.'" he asked, with a
low obeisance.
Yussuf's knowledge of Knglish was remarkably good for a native, but it did
not include au intimate acquaintance
with Debrctt or even Whitaker.
"My honorable bones," Trevayne replied, gravely, "are sufficiently rested;
but my honorable stomach cries aloud
that it has more than sufficiently rested,
lu plain English, Yussuf, breakfast, and
as soon as yuu like !"
Yussuf bowed low and left the room
as noiselessly as be had entered it.
After nearly three years' absence from
England, Trevayne had wurked his way
buck us far ns Morocco. At Tangier,
however, he bad heard thnt a caravan
was to start shortly from Fez into the
interior, and with characteristic impulsiveness ho suddenly decided to make
one of tho party, intending to return
with a homeward-bound caravan, which,
it was calculated, would be nfet within
a few days' journey distnnt from Fez.
lie hud accordingly, though not without
a good deal of bother, settled nil the
necessary preliminaries.
That wns a month ago, nnd the duyof
departure mow appeared to bo hardly
auy nearer. Sometimes, indeed, 12 or 38
months are spent iu making ready the
equipment fur such a caravan. To Tre-
vayne's inquiries every morning the cry
was still the same.
" Iushallah 1 If it idensc God-to-morrow."
But to-mornow the pigskin water bottles would be made water-tight by being
filled with oil and left tg dry in tho sua.
And then thero are tho dates to be
pressed into the saddles to form com-
lurtablo cushions until required for
food. And eo on, almost, it seemed to
Trevavne, to infinity.
Finally, after thc ]0,000 details of a
caravan equipment have been attended
to, there is tho nierry-ninkiug and feasting, which is invariably indulged iu for
a, week ur two previous to tho actual
It was during th'so lust few days that
Hassan, who, with Yussuf, had been
engaged by Trevayne ns guide, was
caught in the act of stealing eome
money belonging to tho proprietor of
tho hotel. Trevayne dealt summarily
with the thief, 'for it was not lib
first offence. Ho toiuk Hassan by the
scruff of tho neck, and kicked hiuirvig-
oroufily all aloug tho wido veranda,
down the broad staircase, through the
lengthy hall, aud out of tho grand entrance into tho crowded Btreot beyond.
Yussuf, who had witnessed tho incident with twitching fingers and a curious half closing of the eyes, turned to
Trevayne and said, solemnly:
11 It was well for him tho Lord Duke
chastised him, and did not baud him
over to his tribe lor the fitting reward
of his sin."
" I suppose so,*1 dryly remarked Trev-
"Yes, when Allah wills it," said Yussuf, "they open tho thief's hands anil
slash a knifo ncroBs thom bo''���and Yussuf ran the forefinger of his right hand
diagonally across the palm of his left
hand; " and then rub saltpetre into the
wounds, und shut up tho thief's hands
and biud them; nnd ho never steals
again. And sometimes they hold a red
hot iron to tho eyes of the thief bintii
thoy are gone, and tlio thief never
again sees anything to steal. God is
great," concluded Yu*-suf, piously shaking his head.
At last tho camels' loads, nfter almost innumerable futile attempts, wero
satisfactorily arranged, and everything
wae ready. Ae usual, a short preliminary march was undertaken to test
the mettle of the camels, and then the
caravan fairly atarted ou its tremendous
fc-'oou the holy city fuilc.d uwny iu
tho distance; lirst tin' rambling, white,
ghostlike houses, then tho minarets,
tall anil stem, in if standing guard
over their lowly brethren, und then tin*
drooping palm trees, with their graceful
outlines projected iu jot black against
the blue brightness of the sky, lingering
on the horizon as if bidding a lust reluctant good-by to the venturous travellers.
Then on over the shifting sand dunes
the vast procession ranged, until the
sand becoming interspersed with sharp
flinty stones, the caravan was halted iu
order that tho camels' feet might bo
bound round nud round with rags,
making them look liko huge boxing
Then tho night fell, outposts were
stationed half a milo or so distant, aud
the caravan ivas formod into a sort of
square, but with tho camels taking tho
placo of tho wagons aud) various impediments usually placed ou the outside
of the square.     Inside     big fires were
kept blazing all tho night through, for
in the desert the nights are icv cold,
harder to lie borno by reason ol tho
burning heat ol the day. Trevayne
wrapped np tn hie burnouse���for * he
had assumed the Arab Costumes���lay at
a short distance from one o! the fires,
whilo uot far from him lay Yusauf,
asleep and snoring.
At lost, just ob Trevayne was dozing
off, he thought he beard a slight crackling���a sound ne of someone Creeping
towards hini through the sand, Starting up into a sitting posture, ho peered
around him. For a moment he could
see nothing, and then, by tho light of
the fire, ho discerned a man crawling
away on his hands and knees. Wheu
the intruder reached a spot whero he
thought he could not be seen, be turned his bead. Hut Trevayne'e eight was
very keen, nnd he saw. with a feeling oi
astonishment nud something like dismay, that a knife gleamed betweeu tye
teeth, uud that tho face was the face
of Hassan, tho dismissed guide. The
object of the nocturnal visit was only
too plain. Murder was writ largo on
the features of the treacherous villain,
h'evengo w.s doubtless tke motive. Cut
how did the cur come thero?
Trevayne minded over the problem
until the velvet darkness grew into nn
austere gray. Then long before the
sup was up, ho was again startled,
this time by a shout, Rising to his
feet, he saw two or three Arabs running around nnd awakening the sleep-
OW by tho simple method of striking
th***iu a stinging blow w'ithi a long caae.
l'ussuf soon camo to arouse Trevayne
In a more civilized mnuu.*r,but finding
him already awake, shut a rapid glance
around to insure that no listeners wero
near, uud then began iu a low, agitated
voice :
" It was well that the Lord Duke, not
being of tho truo faith, himself punished the thieving Hassan. I, Yussuf,
havu seen Hassan in the caravan, and
have heard from the lips of one wbo
Bpeaks truth that the chief of the caravan ie of the samo tribe. God is great,
but a fear has sprung up in tho heart
uf thy slave, even ns a palm tree
1lu*owing a great shadow, for the dog
Hassan is cunning, una seeks the life of
the Lord Duke."
Ou tlie fourth day, wheu the sun was
at its fiercest, and the heat was so oppressive that Trevayne had to gasp for
the breath that seemed to scorch his
very lungs, the half-duzeu Arabs forming the advance guard were seeii ta
suddenly converge to a point, and, after a brief consultation, turn their
camels' beads and ride toward tlie caravan. Evidently something had been
sighted, and that something might be
the expected caravan, ur it might be
the dreaded Touaregs���those merciless
pirates of tho desert.
Iu the instant all was animation. The
heat wus forgotten. The camels were
halted aud the square formed as at
night, whilo the motley collection of
weapons with which the party were
armed, comprising almost all kinds of
firearms, wero eugerly examined aud
made ready for use.
When these preparations were complete, and tho outposts had been received
into thu square, a swirl of dust could
be plainly seen advancing right down
ou to the caravan. Theu tbu cloud of
dust stopped nud settled, and there rode
out from it half a dozen Arabs, who
won made it known that their party
iu fact, formed the lookcd-Ior caravan.
Iu a very short time thc members of
tho two caravans wero ejaculating
praises to the prophet, and fraternizing in a Tnost elfusive manner. Trevayne
was much struck by thu gaunt, ' worn
look of the newcomers. Tbey had been
away from home for two whole years,
and their appenrauco showed that they
bad experienced tho severest privutious.
Far iuto tho night the festivities extended, for the returning caravan would
pass on ite way on tho morrow.
Every one was stirring very early tho
next morning, and preparations to:* the
departure of the two caravans on their
opposite courses were pushed forward
with ull speed. Yussuf hud gone some
little distance off to louk after tho baggage, when Trevayne saw Hassan walk
up, and after casting a malicious glance
ut him, go a few steps further ou and
say something in a hurried manner to
the chief of the caravan, who wa<
standing close by, nnil wlio at ouco
turned and gazed ut Trovayuo with a
deep frown on his dark, scarred face.
Then, beforo Trovayuo could realize
what wae happening, Hassan stepped
up, and thrusting his hand into thu
folds of Trevayue'e hnik, pretended to
draw*?forth) a small dagger. It was tho
veriest trick, most clumsily performed.
The uext moment, to Trevo-ync's utter
amazement, he fouud himself surrounded by scowling Arabs, who, before he
could defend himself iu any wuy,
pounced upon him, tied his bunds b,
lilud him, and pushed him to whom
the chief wus sta-Udlug,
Now, however, the meiiiuing of Ha.
sau's Insulting trick was apparent 1
Trevayne. No doubt the lying bound
had professed to have discovered a plot
to murder the chief, I'm whoso benefit
the dagger farce had evidently beeu ou-
liut lie wns wrong. Hastfiu'e design
was a far deeper ono thau he had conceived. Nor had he long to wait before
making tho discovery, fur Yussuf, hear
ing the hubbub, rushed to the spot. In
a minute he had grasped tho situation.
Wringing ids hands, he grovellod at the
feet of the chief, ami addressed hini in
tones of piteous entreaty. Trovayui
glanced at the Impasstvo Arab chief; nt
the Imploring Yussuf; at his captors,
armed to the teeth ; at the motley crowd
attracted by the commotion ; and tin
knowledge that he, tho central figure
klWW less nbont it all, caused his impn
tleuCO to break nil bounds. In a loud
voice he called Yussuf, who nroaa from
th..' sund, and slowly camo toward li
muster. There was a Juok of despair in
Yussiif'e eyes us be cried;
'��� Oofl i�� great, but the Evil Ono is in
our midst to Work mischief. The dog
of a thief bus told tlio chief that thou
���even thou. Lord Duko���line stolen his
dagger, and he asks that thou maVB^
be punished ae oue of tbo true faith."
Then the full horror of the situation
flushed upon Trovayute.
"Surely," he cried, as his face paled
���"surely they won't cut my hands or
burn out my eyes 1" Then in n, frenzy
of fear he shouted; "Tell tho chief that
it was ouly a trick���tell him why thut
fiend did it���that ho tried to murder
me the other night."
YuesuE trembled. "Lord Duke," he
said, sorrowfully, "I  have done even as
thou bast said, and more also, but tho
cniof will not listen. Ile -ays that hie
eyes cannot lie."
"Tell bim," cried Trevayne, in desperation, "that if I nm harmed my peoplo will come and kill him and all bis
Yussuf translated the threat to the
ohief, whu calmly i-eplied:
"Kismet. It may come to pass even
us the infidel suyeth. Let the infidel
suffer the penalty of his crime." Tha
chief made a sign with his baud, aud
theu went iuto his teut.
Justice is fcumiuarily dispensed iu the
desert. Tho sentence had beeu pVo-
uuunced, aud would be carried into effect on tho spot. Trovayuo wae dragged
fur ward. Three or four Arabs hold
him fast, whilo a couple more unbound
his arms sufficiently to enable tbem to
pull his hands over a bale of merchandise. One had brought a bowl of saltpetre, and another drew bis knifo ready
to inflict the wounds which would effectually prevent the dug uf an infidel
from ever again robbing a true believer.
Trevayne hnd not tamely submitted
to all this. Death ho would havo faced
without turning a hair���but to bo horribly m&imed for life was fur worse
than death. And now a brazier of
Charcoal wae brought, and Trevayne
noticed with a thrill of terror that a
small Iron wns sticking through the
bars and wus nlrendy nearly red-hot*
Despite all his efforts to control himself,   the    ngony   of   his     fear    ovcrrumo
him aud he struggled like a madman.
It was useless. Hie hands wero forced
open und tho knife was actually uplifted, when, suddenly, the chief reappeared, shunted a brief command and
strode back to bis tent. To Trevayue'e
inexpressible joy ami bewilderment,
the knife was slipped into its sheath
nnd he was released from his bunds!
Without iinotlii'r wbrd, be was hurried
alung to the homeward-bound caravan,
which was already on tho move.
Not until the caravan reached the
Holy City did Trevayne become aware
that Yussuf bad not returned with him.
After some deliberation on the subject,
be came to the conclusion thnt the guide
bad beon induced to throw iu bis lot
with the outbound caravan. As to his
own adventure, Trevayne decided that
the Arabs had never intended to do anything more than frighten him.
On the morning of- hie intended departure for England, ns ho was finishing
liis breakfast at tho hotel, he heard
fvumeoue stumble into the passage leading to bis room. Ho heard the intruder
grope about outside, and then the door
was pushed open. A native advanced into the room with a feeble, unsteady
step. nU head drooped forward, his
chin upon his chest. Trevayne gazed

Startling Figures Presented to the
New York Tenement Commission.
BAHDLY   EOOK   '10   L1V��.
Ur. Cyrus Eilson, of the New York
Board oi Health, uml one of the members of tlie Tenement House Commission, reports mi the densely populated portion ol tlie city. Dr. John
Nugle, of tlie Bureau of Records, has
been collecting statistics for many
years, and having tlie records of the
Health Department under his charge
this report will be oi considerable
value to the Tenement House Committee. The following extract lias
been prepared by Dr. Nagle:
Tliere aro seven city blocks that
have each a population of more than
three thousand persons. The square
that lias the largest number of inhabitants Is that bounded by avenue
Jl and c, Second ami Third streets,
which contains 8,582 persons: the
square bounded Iiy Tenth avenue.
Eleventh Avenue and Forty-eighth
and Forty-ninth streets follows with
a population of 8,517, and following
these squares in its order of population are: Thnt bounded by Ninth ami
Tenth avenues Forty-eighth nud
Forty ninth streets, 8,800: that
bounded by Tenth nnd Eleventh
avenues nnd Forty-ninth nnd
Fiftieth streets 8,880; the
square        between       Tenth and
Eleventh avenues, Forty-fourth and
Forty-firth streets, 8,151 j between
Ninth and Tenth nvenues, Filty-se-
ciinil and Fifty-third .treets, 8,0-11,
and the square between .Ninth nnd
Tenth avenues, "Thirty-ninth nud
Fortieth streets, 8,0:10.
The total population of tliese seven
squares reached the enormous number
of 22,907 people, and the entire number of deaths that occurred in the
homes located oa these tefvt'n squares
���was T."T. which showed that there
were 82.86 deaths to every 1.000 of
the Inhabitants, while the number of
deaths to every 1,01)0 of tlie population or the entire city (ut the time
the figures were taken on which the
report is based) was 21.26. The evil
effects of overcrowding where tbe
population is densely packed, where
human beings are herded together in
sueh large numbers in such small
space, where the living and Bleeping
rooms are necessarily badly ventilated and stuffy, where tlie sur-
rouudings are grimy and foul smelling, and where aggregations of
filth cannot be avoided, are forcibly
demonstrated on the health of the
people who are unfortunate enough
to abide in such localities by the death
rate among tliein.
The excess of fatal cases in the
squares to every 1.000 of their population was 8.70 over the rate to tho
1.000 to the population of the entire
city for tlie entire year. Tiie square,
however, whicli had the largest population (3,082) of any square in tlie
city (avenues B and C and Second
and Third streets), according to the
State census of 1802, had during tho
snme year 161 yeaths, or oae death
to every 21.91- of tho population, or
46.08 deaths ia every 1,000 of this
Effect of a I'rclly Iteil Jiteket on il Despondent Invalid.
"One of the tilings that helped my
recovery," said a woman, recently,
who has just regained lier health
after a serious illness, ".was a pretty
bed jacket which my sister brought
me one day in lieu of jellies and
fruit. It was becoming, and I enjoyed It. Thc doctor, when he
first saw me in It, said I looked 20
per cent, better than the day before :
man like, he didn't appreciate the
reason, and my spirits, nnd, consequently, my condition, bettered ia
proportion. Too often invalids are
wrapped in any old thing that Is
handy. I remember laughing once
when a. friend in robust health'showed mo a dainty lacc-trimined sick
gown, 'for me,' she explained, 'if 1
ever need it.' The notion struck mc
ns absurd when she wus never ill,
but nfter my experience with that
lied jacket, f appreciate better the
value of attractive environment under depressing circumstances."
As the tramp was seated onj the
kitchen steps eating tlie breakfast lie
had asked for, the hired girl stood
by and watched him curiously.
"What you gnzlu' at mc lor?" he
inquired nervously. "J'ou thiuk I'm

"No," she replied, easily, "hut you
somehow remind me of a'man 1 used

"Sweetheart?" Inquired the tramp
witli charming naivete.

The battle between yntd and bi-met
ftlism is being fought out ns never be-
foi��. Before it ends the people should
know a good deal about finance. On
this continent the United States i.i thc
���great battle ground. In Europe, Germany takes the lead and will doubtless
arrange for an international conference
Wuh tbe advent of the Conservatives
to power in Kngland the prospect looks
brighter for the double standard.
It must never be forgotten that when
���we ar-e discussing the adoption of the
Gothenburg system, by winch the supply of intoxicants becomes a monopoly
of the State, that this in its essence is
the principle on which the Indian tJov-
���eminent controls the supply of opium.
The Gothenburg or dispensary system
ii working wonders in South Carolina.
Dr Albert Shiw, who has beeu traveling through the Southern Stales, reports
lhat tbe people of South Carolina, outside -of the old liquor interest and cer
tain political circles, have become almost unanimous in the opinion that the
system is a snleiulid success. Railway
road masters and other men familiar
with conditions throughout the State,
are enthusiastic in their account of the
good effects that the law has already
produced. Drunkenness aud diiirder
have decreased to a remarkable extent;
aud whereas the negro laborer was formerly accustomed to spend his week's
earnings in carousing on Saturday night
and Sunday, he is now spending more
upon his family, or else saving his money to buy land. Thc ten or twelve
State dispensaries in the city of Charles
ton, which have taken the plac ��� uf
scores or hundreds of saloons are as
openly conducted and as orderly as
anv drug store, and are absolutely clos
ed at sundown. The effect upon the
-quiet and order of the city has been
Coo transforming to admit of any denial.
Reports from country towns throughout
the State are to the effect that the
closing of the old bar-rooms in favor
���of the new dispensaries has been at
tended with results that have converted
almost every good citizen to a belief in
thc present system.

CKvuiii*. Union,
Kindly trembling from the sky
Through the shadows ofthe night,
Free from Nature's faintest sigh
Comes in peace thy silvery light;
Far Irom oher realms of space
Bringing joy and bliss to me,
In the beauties of thy grace
Starlight ofthe midnight sea.
Stranger though I wander here
'Neath the shadows of thc night,
Softly from thy flaming sphere
Comes to me thv silvery light;
-Gently from thy fount above,
Beckoning my soul to see,
How thv glimmerings whisper love,���
Starlight ofthe midnight sea.
Though my heart in sorrow pine
In the shadows ofthe night,
To this weary soul of mine
Comes thy soft and silvery light;
In its touch I feci the grace
Of my Father's love to me,
As through loving tears I trace
Starlight on life's midnight seu.

It is with many and profound apologies
to the community in general and Comox
Courtenay, and Union in particular that
1 offer this true but wonderful narrative
for publication. In doing so 1 beg tlie
r*. icier not to look upon me in the light
oi .i tramp as the journey was undertaken
i i thc spirit of adventure and not wilh
k.' expectation thut my method would
become usual or popular. Indeed I have
re :eived a letter tro-n a Iriend in Comox
baying he does not admire mv st>le ol
Unveiling. I cannot blame him as there
isn't verv much style in riding m a freight
car.   Hut to proceed.
My stilling poim was San  Francisco.
Why 1 left there at all, for various ten-
tons I  prefer not  to tell, except to su*.
that   it second,   neccssan.   .So  with a
young fellow, 1 will call Victor, I  ugiecd
to make the trip to Chicago.   I jumped
my job of smashing trofl at j-g much .i
' smash on  July,  yfrar 1S94, and made a
1 draw on the bank for $12  whit h it seem*
j ed scarcely to notice but which strength
Htu-d me to the tunc of $zo 10.   The odd
j cents I invested in a cup of coffee uno
i cake, and leaving a small quantity nf bag
* gage t\iih -m acquaintance we walked on
J board   of the Stockton  steamer.   That
i baggage I may as well say right here par
I enthetically, never heeded our invitation
I to follow us.    No blame  attaches  lo   it,
but "-ve have  learned some  things since
that seriously reflect upon ihe character
of our acqwrntanee,   It is said that at
one time he  was treasurer ofa society
out in New Z.-aland and came 10 America for rest.    1 think he mav  have gotten
an arrest,and and one ofthe  pawnshops,
have gotten the baggag**.'.
It was 5 p.m. when the whistle blew
and we backed out into the magnificent
harbour of S.oi Francisco���"the bet-i on
earth", Vici.r and 1 sealed ourselves at
the extreme.stern until the wheel began
tht owing sin.dl poilions of the bay on
deck dampen.ng our locks, <-o we hunted
n dryer locality, but this time our spirits
were dampened by the purser calling
out, "Fares, please1'. The sharp peremptory cry sort of para \ zed us and before
we had fully recovered we were each 25
cents poorer. Then we tried to enjoy
die scenen until the supper bell rang,
any remarks about which, I fear might
injure the Stockton transportation Co.
Supper over we once more endeavoured
to enjoy the scenery, evening air and
mosquitoes. Thu two former were ven
���scarce, hut the latter more than made up
for them, especial!/ in quantity. We
maintained our position until thc piano
sent forth a wail that reminded ine uf the
time I was trying 10 get a job in the 1J.C.
Ir6n works at Vancouver, doing inside
we s'uv a 20th century girl pounding it
as ihorgh it was her worst enemy. She
worealiighsiikh.it, which was without
doubt made for one ofthe other sex who
was in good circumstances. She was assisted by another young lady who tried
to OJt-do the piano with her lung power,
but it was no go. I was thn-.king if 1
could make as much nnisc on the anvil
i.s she did on the piano I would Wive
more than $1975 in my pocket, aiul not
have freight cars on the brain. They
rendered "After the ball" ''Two little*girls
in b.ue" and other popular airs but when
they started on the "Howery" it was too
much, and breaking through the crowd
I bowed io the lair pianist and mildly enquired, "Where did vou get th.tt air"?
Wa/, she answered, "th us from Hoyl's
Trip to Chinatown" "Oh, it is?" I replied; 1 thought you m-ght have gone out
on deck with an old sack and caught it.
My attack didn't seem to produce any
eflect, so we went aft and had a game of
cuds. Getting tired I left Victor playing with another fellow while I laid down
and tried hard to sleep, it was impossible; mosquitoes were hungry and had to
be accommodated. Soon the bell rang
and the boat stopped. Going outside 1
saw we were up against the bank wilh
the gang plank out. Boxes of chickens
were hustled on board, gang plank pulled in and away we went Without even a
linj being used. I spent my time ancl
patience in looking over that flat marshy
country trying to distinguish thc farmers
liglns from the will-< -the*wisp, and
fighting mosquitoes Once we stopped
for coal; often to take on or put off boxes,
never tying up, seldom a w hat f,-*-j list run
up against the bank ancl moved on up an
awfully crooked channel, and often turning almost ab ut. Wei, worn out, 1 went
inside and succeeded 111 getting about
three hours sleep in spite of mosquitoes
and piano. When I awoke Victor was
sitting beside me slapping his hands and
face as though he had a grudge against
them. Passing some uncomplimentary
rem irks about the war-song ofthe mosquitoes we went on deck. It was just
getting light. A mist was hanging
around the horizon, for want of something
else to do I suppose. Peering ahead,
Vic, suddenly exclaimed, "Curse the
luck; there's another!" "Another what" I
enquired. "Why a mosquito; dont you
see it?" "No that's a fish crane or a sea
gull." A church steeple was seen in the
distance which I pointed out to Vic. We
were nearing the city of Stockton. The
deck was soon crowded by a sorry looking set. The puncturing buzzing insect
which had so troubled us had spared
none; even the 20th centurv girl looked
as though she might be a relic of the 19th
The rush since we started our big Clearing Sale is very similar to the Salvage Sale we
had last fall. We have far too much stock-over $30,000. We must bring it down under
$20,000, and to do so, the prices have been slashed right and left without regard for the cost.
The goods on our Bargain Counter are going off rapidly, and customers are surprised at the
low price we are selling stuff.    .

We do not insist upon flower beds,

The principal injury weeds do to the
growing crop is to rob it ol the available nitrates contained lu the soil.
Weeds feed with especial avidity upon
these, uud when they have been taken

Of the 13 countries where potatoes
are grown extensively, there is none
with bo low an average au acre as
the United States. Great Britain, Bel-
glum, Holland and Norway stand at
the head m productiveness. The two
and a hall million acres under cultivation lu the United States yield
ahout 175 million bushels; Great
Britain, with one nnd one-third million*! acres, produces more.
The Bole reason why the (armors of
tho United Kingdom raise the largest
crop of potatoes is because they take
care of Hie soil on which tlie potatoes
grow; the American farmer raises tlio
.smallest crop of all the nations because ho attempts it upon soil which
fulls to furnish necessary plant lood.
It Is altogether in the farming.
At the Benson in which the hay crop
begins to run short the farmer puts
tlie most value upou that article.
Now lie begins to economise. The
economy would bettor begin In thc
rummer of stacking or mowing his
crop lor the winter. Tlio modern
hay barn is a contrivance, w-hich Is
much commended Just now, but much
bay will be wasted tliis tail, nevertheless.
The " wonderful" pea can lie grown

Without doubt a great deal of beef

The Virginia station made an attempt

found the cost a pound of increase in

tho unsystematic (ceding by tlie unskilled farmer!) Gusss work must be
given up for tho scales.
The first cattle were exported from

For somo unknown reason U, S.

out ol them than from steers.
The South American States have
large herds nnil flocks eager to reach
the European markets, but they are
not yet graded up in quality. They
will some day awaken to their
chances and make for us formidable
competitors. The over the sea markets appreciate quality, and If we
would hold them we must keep our
stock up to their standard.

' Ducks begin laying when about
eight months old, and keep it up for
four or live months. They make a
business of it. One drake With four
ducks makes a sufficient family to
begin with. If so fortunate ns to
huve a meadow* with a clear stream
of wator running through It, the cost
of raising them Is practically nothing.
Pekin ducks aro moro easily raised

Use it every third or fourth night

Raising squabs for the market is a
paying business; they cost next to
nothing, and bring large returns. See
that they have warm quarters, well
protected Irom the storms aud from
all marauders. If you start with a
few young pigeons, they will need a

Poultry in largo flocks never do

of those facts, however often repeated.
Ground (or strawberries slmuld be
pinughod anil crnss-pluughed, and even
sub-soiled, if mit naturally friable.
The rnots should be shortened one-
third and not doubled up,
as is too often the case,
and the earth about them
firmed. All but two or three of tho
centre leaves should be removed, and
the crown placed eveu with the
ground, but not covered.
If a little manure is uiixed with the
earth about strawberry plants when
set out it will be a help to them.
Then keep them clear of weeds. They
should be tilled with a fine toothed
cultivator nfter every rain, and, in
nny event, twice a week. "With a
hoe turn the runners in the right direction, nnd cover them, wheu necessary, to start a new plant.
Plants for winter flowering should,
before being set out in tho spring, be
potted in six-inch crocks, with hole
in'bottom plugged. They can be
burled iu the ground so as tn appear
planted as tho ntber flowers. When
the time of lifting arrives the pots
will be full of roots, ami the plants
in excellent condition for blooming.
Grape vines should be given free
nir circulation to nvoid disease of
leaf aud fruit. Good nud careful tillage is essential to their successful
cultivation; let it be deep for the
first year, nnd after that shallow.
Keop the weeds away, but do not
cut the roots in the process, In addition to this thoy need but a good
annual pruning.
Onco In the morning. Is often
enough to water house plants, nnd

.should be applied at the surface.

Grateful Women Write Us Letters.
From every corner of the couutry
come thankful letters written by those
who have been lifted into cheerful, vigorous, healthy strength by Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription.
Thousands on thousands of women
have been relieved of the nerve-nagging
drag of weakness and pain.
They have been made bitter wives nnd
better mothers bv having perfect health
restored, aud without the humiliating
exposure of examinations so generally
insisted ou by physicians.
The stereotyped treatment by "local
applications" is seldom necessary, and
there is no reason why mndest, sensitive
women need submit to tbem.
Dr, Pierce's Favorite Prescription is
of purely vegetable composition nnd is
perfectly harmless in any condition of
tlie system. It exerts a wonderful soothing, healing und strengthening power
over woman's delicate,organism. It is
an invigorating tonic lor the whole system, and is almost an infallible specific
for the peculiar weaknesses, irregularities and painful derangements of woman.
To these causes may be traced the
trouble of tired, nervous, irritable, worn-
out women. Careless, easy-going doctors
frequently treat their women patients for
biliousness, nervousness, dyspepsia, liver
or kidney troubles, when the real sickness is jn the organs distinctly feminine,

who. like many others who achieved
high distinction, came from the sturdy
rural classes���the agriculturists. The
subject of the sermon was "Shamgar's
Ox-goad," the text being: "After him
waa Shamgar, which slew of the Philistines six hundred men with an ox-
goad."   Judges, III., 81.
One day while Shamgar, the fanner,
was plowing with a yoke uf oxen, his
command of wlioa-luuv-gee was ohanged to the shout of battle. Philistines,
always ready to make trouble, march
up with sword and spear. Shamgar,
the plowman, had no sword, and would
not probably have known how to wield
it if he had possessed one. But light
he ninsL or go down under the stroke
of the. (PhilisLlnes, lie had an ox-goad
���a weapon used to urge on the lazy
team: a weapon about eight feet long,
with a sharp iron at one end to puncture the beast, and a wide iron chisel,
or shovel, at the other end with whioh
to scrape the clumps of soil from the
plowshare. Yet, with the iron prong
at one end of the ox-goad, and the
iron scraper at the other, it was not
such a weapon as one would desire to
use in battle with armed Philistines.
But God helped the farmer, and leaving the oxen to look after themselves,
he charged upon the invaders of hia
homestea,d. Some of the commentaries, to make It easier for Shamgar,
suggest that perhaps he led a regiment of fanners into the combat, his
ox-goad only one of many ox-goads.
But the.t-ord does not need any of
you to help in making the Scriptures,
and Shamgar, with the Lord on his
side, was mightier than six hundred
Philistines with the Lord against
them. The battle opened. Shamgar,
with muscle strengthened with open
air, and plowman's, and reaper's, and
thresher's toil, uses the only weapon
at hand, and he swings the ox-goad
un and down, and this way and that;
now stabbing with the iron prong at
one end of It, and now thrusting with
the Iron scraper at the other, and now
bringing down the whole weight of the
instrument upon the heads of the
enemy. The Philistines are In a panic,
and the supernatural forces come In,
and a blow that would not under
other circumstances have prostrated
or slain, left its victim lifeless; until
when Shamgar walked over the field,
he counted one hundred dead, two
hundred dead, three hundred dead,
four hundred dead, five hundred dead,
six hundred dead���all the work done
by an ox-goad with Iron prong at one
end and an Iron shovel at the othor.
The fame of this achievement by this
farmer with an awkward weapon of
war spread abroad, and lionized him,
until he was hoisted Into tlie highest
place of power, and became the third
of the mighty judges of Israel. So
you see that Cincinnati's was not the
only man lifted from plow to throne.
For what reason was this unprecedented and unparalleled victory of
a farmer's ox-goad put into the Bible,
where there was no spare room for
the unimportant and the trivial?
It was, first of all, to teach you, and
to teach me, and to teach all the past
agea since then, ancl to teach all the
ages to come, that in the war for God,
and against sin, we ought to put to
the best use the weapon we happen
to have on hand. Why did not Shamgar wait until he could get a war
charger, with neck arched, and back
caparisoned, and nostrils'sniffing the
battle afar off, or until he could get
war equipment, or could drill a regiment, and wheeling them into line,
command thern forward to the charge?
To wait for that would have been defeat and, annihilation. So he takes the
best weapon he could lav hold of,
and that is an ox-goad. Wo are called
into the battle for the right, and
against wrong, and many of us have
not just the kind of weapon we would
prefer. It may not be a sword of argument. It may not be the spear of
sharp, thrusting wit. Jt may not be
the battering ram of denunciation.
But there Is something we can do,
and some forces we can wield. Do
not wait for what you have not, but
use what you have. Perhaps you have
not eloquence, bnt you have a smile.
Well, a smile of encouragement has
changed the behavior of tens of thousands of wanderers, and brought thom
back to God, and enthroned them In
heaven. You cannot make a persuasive appeal, but you can set an
example, and a good example has
saved more souls than you could
count In a year, if you counted all
the time. You cannot give ten thousand dollars, but you can give as
much as the widow of the Gospel,
whose two mites, the smallest coins
of the Hebrews, were bestowed In
such a spirit as to make her more
famous than all the contributions
that ever endowed all the nospitals
and universities of all Christendom,
nf all time. You have vory limited
vocabulary, but you can say "yes" or
"no," and a firm "yes," or nn emphatic "no," has traversed the centuries, and will traverse all eternity,
wilh good Influence, You may not
have the courage to confront a large
assemblage, but you can tell a Sunday school class of two���a boy and a
girl���how to find Christ, and one of
them may become a William Carey,
to start influences that will redeem
India, and the other a Florence Nightingale, who will Illumine battle fields
covered with the dying and the dead.
That was a tough case In a town of
England where a young lady, applying for a Sunday school class, was
told by the superintendent she would
have to pick up one out of the street.
The worst of the class brought from
the street was one Bob. ne was fitted
out with respectable clothing by
the superintendent. But after two or
three Sabbaths be disappeared. He
was found with his clothes In tatters,
for he had been fighting. The second
time Bob waa well clad for school.
After coming once or twice, he again
disappeared, and waa found in rags,
consequent upon fighting. The teacher was disposed to give him up, but
the superintendent said, "Let ua try
him  again,"  ancl   the  third    suit    of
clothes was provided him. Thereafter he came until he was converted,
and joined the church, and started for
the Gospel ministry, and became a
foreign missionary, preaching and
translating the Scriptures. Who was
the boy called Bob? The illustrious
Dr. Robert Morrison, great on earth
and greater in heaven. Who his
teacher was I know not; but she used
the opportunity opened, and great has
been her reward. You may not be
able to load an Armstrong gun; you
may not be able to hurl a Hotchkiss
shell; you may not be able to shoulder
a glittering musket; but use anything
you can lay your hands on. Try a
blacksmith's hammer, or a merchant's
yard-stick, or a mason's trowel, or
a carpenter's plane, or a housewife's
broom, or a farmer's ox-goad. One
of the surprises of heaven will be
what grand results came from how
simple means. Matthias Joyce, the
vile man, became a great apostle of
righteousness, not from hearing John
Wesley preach, but from seeing him
kiss a little child on the pulpit stairs.
Again, my subject springs upun us
the thuuglit that in calculating the
prospects uf religious attempt* we must
take omnipotence, und uuiniscicnce,
and omnipresence, and all the other attributes uf God into the calculation.
Whom do yuu see un that plowed field
of my text? One bearer says, *"l tsee
Shamgar." Another hearer says. "I
see six hundred Philistines." My hearer, yuu have missed the chief personage on that battle field of plowed
gruund. 1 also see Shamgar and si**.
hundred Philistines, but more than
all, and mightier than all, and mure
overwhelming than all, 1 see Gud.
Shamgar with his unaided arm, however muscular, and with that humble
instrument made lor agricultural purposes, and never constructed fur combat, could not have wrought such victory. It was Omnipotence abuve, and
beneath, aud back uf, and at the point
of the ox-goad. Before that battle
was over,, the plowman realized this,
and all thc six hundred Philistines realized it, and all who visited the battle
field afterward appreciated it. I want
in heaven to hear the story, for it can
never be fully told on earth���perhaps
some day may fte set apart fur the
rehearsal, while all heaven listens���the
story of how God blessed awkward and
humble instrumentalities. Many an
evangelist has come into a town given
up to wo rid I in ess. The pastors say to
the evangelist, "We are glad you have
come, but it is a hard field, and we
feel sorry for you. The members of
our churches play progressive euchre,
and go to the theater, and bet at the
horse races, and gaiety and fashion
have taken possession of the town.
We have advertised your meetings, but
are not very hopeful. God bless you."
This evangelist takes his place on platform or pulpit. He never graduated at
college, and there are before him twenty graduates of the best universities.
He never took one lesson In elocution,
and there are before hhn twenty trained orators. Many of the ladies present are graduates of the highest seminaries, and one slip In grammar or one
mispronunciation wiil result in suppressed giggle. Amid the general chill
that pervades the house, tlie unpretending evangelist opens his Bible and
takes his text, "Lord, that my eyes
may be opened." Opera glasses In the
gallery curiously scrutinize the speaker. He tells in a plain way the story
of the blind man, tells two or three
touching anecdotes, and the general
chill gives way before a strange
warmth. A classical hearer who took
the firat honor at Yale, and who is a
prince of proprieties, finds his spectacles becoming dim with a moisture
suggestive of tears. A worldly mother
who has been bringing up her sons
and daughters in utter godlessness,
puts her handkerchief to her eyea and
begins to weep. Highly educated men
who come to criticise, and pick to
pieces, and find fault, bow on their
gold-headed canes. What is that sound
from under the gallery I It is a sob,
and Bobs are catching; and all along
that wall, and up and down the audience, there Is deep emotion, so that
when, at the close of the service, anxious souls are Invited to especial seats,
or -the inquiry room, they come up by
scores, and kneel and repent, and rise
up pardoned; the whole town is shaken,
and places of evil amusement are sparsely attended, and rum holes lose their
patrons, and the churches are thronged, and the whole Community is
cleansed, and elevated, and rejoiced.
What power did the evangelist bring
to bear to capture that town for righteousness'/ Not one brilliant epigram
did lie utter. Not one graceful gesture did he make. Not one rhetorical
climax did he pile up. But there was
something about him that people had
not takeu in the estimate when they
prophesied the failure of that work.
They had not taken Into calculation
the Omnipotence of the Holy Ghost.
It was not the flash of a Damascus
blade. It was God, before, and behind, and ail around the ox-goad.
When people say that crime will triumph, and the world will never be
converted because of the seeming Insufficiency of the means employed,
they cuunt the six hundred armed Philistines on one side, and Shamgar, the
farmer, awkwardly equipped, on the
other side; not realizing lhat the
chariots of God are twenty thousand,
and that all heaven, cherubic, seraphic,
archangcllc, Deific, is on whal otherwise would be the weak side. Napul-
eon, the author uf tho saying, "Gud Is
on the side of tlie heaviest artillery,"
lived to find out hia mistake; for at
Waterloo the one hundred aud sixty
guns of the Knglish overcame the two
hundred and fifty guns of the Freueh.
God Is on the side of lhe right, ami
one man in the right will eventually
be found stronger than six hundred
men in the wrong, lu all estimates
uf any kind of Christian work, do not
make the mistake every day made of
leaving out the Head of the Universe.
Go out, then, I charge you, against
the Philistines, We must admit the
odds are against us���six hundred to
one. In the matter of dollars, these
devoted to worldilness, and sin, and
dissipation, when compared with the
dollars devoted to holiness and virtue
���six hundred to one. The houses set
apart for vice, aud despoliation, and
ruin, as compared with those dedicated to good, six. hundred to one. Of
printed newspaper sheets Bca-ttere.1
from day to day, those depraving
aa compared with those elevating, are
six hundred to one. The agencies for
making the world worse compared
with the agencies for making the world
better, six hundred to one. But Moses,
in his song, chants. "How should one
chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight? and In my text one
ox-goad conquers six hundred uplifted
battle-axes; and the day of universal
victory la coming, unlosa the Bible be
a fabrication, and eternity a myth,
and the chariots of God are unwheeled
on the golden streets, and the last regiment of the celestial hosts lies dead
on the plains of heaven. With us. or
or without us, the work will be done.

Sunstroke weather has followed
sharply upon pneumonia weather this
season. Hero are the rules issued by
the Philadelphia Board of Health for
preventing and treating suustroke:
Sunstroke Is a condition caused by
exposure to excessive heat. Two forms
are recognized���heat exhaustion and
heat stroke.
Heat exhaustion���Prolonged exposure to high temperature, particularly when combined with physical cx-
crtlun, Is liable to bj followed by
great prostration, collapse, restlessness, and, In severe casus, by delirlim.
Unlike heat Btroke, the surface of the
body is usually cool, tho pulse small
and rapid, aud the temperature normal���as low as 'J.j degrees or UG degrees, it is uot necessary that thu
person shall have been exposed to thc
direct rays of the sun, as tho condition may come oa wheu working iu
close, coufined rooms during midsummer and wheu exposed to great artificial heat, as iu laundries, fopndries,
bake shops aud engine rouius.
Sunstroke or heatstroke���This is
chiefly coufined to persons working
very hard while exposed tu the sun.
It is common in our large cities, but
is not unknown lu the cpuntry. Those
habituated to the use of beer and
whiskey and the debilitated arc especially predisposed tu attacks.
The attack may be sudden and the
patieut be struct down aud dia within an hour with symptoms of heart
failure- difficult breathing, and loss of
cousciuusucss. The usual form cuiues
ua during exposure, with paiu in the
head, dizzinefcst a feeling uf weakness, and sumetimes nausea and vomiting, Tho loss of consciousness may
be ouly transient or It may bo complete. Tho face is flushed, the skin
puugent, the pulse rapid aud full, and
tho temperature very high, frum 107
degrees tu 110 degrees. Tho breathing is labored and deep, sometimes
luud. It is important to auto that in
iheat exhaustion the skin is moist, pale
and cool; tho breathing easy, though
hurried; tho pulse small und soft, and
thc senses entire; while in heat-stroke
there is usually insensibility and great
heat uf skin.
Dark, cluse-fitiug and heavy clothing und sucu as compresses tue chest
aud neck Should nut bo wprn during
tho heated term. For those who are
obliged -to labor iu the sun, light
clothing and a straw or light felt
hat, permitting frco circulation of
tho uir, are preferable.
On very hoi* days ono should drink
frequently of cool water in moderate
quantity. It is injurious to drink a
large quantity of ice water, cold
beer, soda, water or other mineral
waters or Iced drinks. Cool water
In which oatmeal has been stirred-is
a safe and refreshing drink. Immediate death 1#. .sometimes caused by
" ieo cold" drinks. The Immoderato
use of alcoholic beverages Is also
Tho sleeping room should bo freely
ventilated. Constipation of tho
bowels should be avoided. When overheated work slowly, frequently, cooling the head, chest, back and wrists
with cool Water. Keep a wet
sponge or cloth in t-he hat. When
ou a very hot day tne skiu becomes
hot and dry, and a stinging, burning sensation Is felt In tho head, and
the face is flushed and .the eyes bloodshot, and there Is tendency to urinate frequently the person should Immediately quit work, seek quiet and
a cool place, and if not speedily relieved from tlio oppressive sensation
of heat, take a cold bath, submerging or wetting the head.
Remove tho patient to a cool and
shady place, whero there is plenty uf
fresh, pure air. Strip tho clothing
to thc waist aud placo tho sufferer in
a recumbent position. Pour cold
water (ice water) upun the head and
chest uud wrist until consciousness
returns. Apply Ice to tho head nnd
rub the body with It, but If the skin
is cold no ice Should be applied. When
practicable /the patient should bo
put In a bath at 7u degrees to reduce tlie temperature.
In heat exhaustion stimulants
should be given freely, and'if thc temperature is below normal, as shown
by the skin being cold and clammy,
the hot bath should bo used. . Ammonia and water may bo given, If
Tho subject or sunstroke Is liable
tu a second attack, nnd should do
no mental work fur months, and keep
from all excitement.

A party of fifteen Indies mil gentlemen
in. Iiirii-1**, young j^rls went out to I'lint-
Indge lake fora sail la*-l Sunday afternoon.
It was pretly windy and of course the wa
tor was rounh. Nothing unusual however, happened until the boat was taken
around to where the tideless waters empty into lhe Courtenay River. Here are
the first falls or rapids. Good boatmen
shootjJown them without dinger, but the
gei.t'emen on board the Sunday rraft
were not sailors. The one wlio aclei* as
captain did the best he could but the others in nine times out ot ten did directly
opposite 10 what they were told. The
boat pitched and tumbled md w,is being
gradually borne towards the rapid**** The
little ones screamed, and nne ofthe gen*
tlemen lost hope and with blanched lips
"We must all perish trigether."
A little jflrl moaned���"If I mu-u die I
don't want to be drowned''
A tree lies in the Like prone from the
western side near the mouth of the rapids. From thc boa: on io this one of
the valourous gentlemen sprang. At
such a time it is each fnr himself, .md
calico isn't of much value except as a
float. It was supposed at least to be a
life or death struggle The ladies were
the only cool ones aboard and will
doubtless accept the next invitation to
sail -with the right escort.    Fortunately
McR and "his girl" had landed in a
small canoe near.   A rope  was thrown
to them which McR secured, and the
two boat*-* were pulled toward each other
where lhey danced a jig together in the
current. Finally the> succeeded in land
ing and then rescued the gentleman in
thc tree. The ladies and children walked and scrambled around the shnre from
the mouth of the river pas-dm; indentations and through wet and swampy \
ground, under logs, over logs and up
heights and through the brush until lhey
