We have received a copy of the first issue

In lhe City of Vancouver there are editions
of lhe daily papers issued evary day excepting Monday. The journalists of the Coast
have thus far deemed it best to observe the
second day of the week as their Sabbath or
Day of Rest. Now as the-,,Vancouver dallies
ignored the 1st day of the week as a day of
rest, so the Lodger company has no regard
fur the Journalistic day ol rest. IJeing the
only Monday paper the "Lsdegr" hat an opportunity to succeed.
The tone of the lirst issue is healthy. The

Two Englishmen, both very much

vi,   111,   ■•Which  hope."
There is an Atlantic ocean of
depth and fullness iu the verso from
which my text is taken, and I only
wade into tho wave at tlie beach and
take two words. Wc all have favorite words expressive of delight
or abhorrence, words that easily
find their way from brain to lip,
words that have in them morning*
and midnights, laughter and tears,
thunderbolts and dewdrops. In all
the lexicons and vocabularies there
are few words that have for me the
attractions of the last word of my
text,   "Which hope."
There have in the course of our life
been many angels of God that have
looked over our shoulders, or met
us on the road or chanted the
darkness away, or lifted the curtains of the great future, or pulled
us back from the precipices, or rolled down upon us the rapturous music of the heavens, but there is one
of those angels who has done so
much for us that we wish throughout all time and eternity to celebrate it—the angel of Hope. St.
Pool mukes it the centre of a group
of three, saying, "Now abideth
faith, hope, charity." And though
he says that charity is the greatest
of the three, he does not take one
plume from the wing, or one" ray
of lustre from the brow, or one aurora from the cheek, or one melody
from the voice of the angel of my
text,   "Which hope."
That was a great night for our
world, when in a Bethlehem caravansary the Infant Koyal was born, and
that will be a great night in the
darkness when Christian hope is
born. There will bo chanting in
thc skies and a star pointing to the
Nativity. I will not bother you
with the husk of a definition and tell
you what hope is. When we sit
down hungry at, a table, wo do not
Want nn analytical discourse as to
what bread is. Hand it on; pass it
round; give us a slice of it. John
speaks of hope as a "pure hope";
Peter calls it a "lively hope"; Paul
styles it a "good hope," a "sure
hope," a "rejoicing hope." And
all up and down tho Bible it is spoken of as an anchor, as a harbor,- as
a helmet,  us a door.
No better medicine did a man ever
take than hope. It is a stimulant,
a febrifuge, a tonic, a catholicon.
Thousands of people long ago departed this life would have been living to-day but for the reason they
let hope slip their grasp. I have
known people to live on hope after
one lung was gone and tliscn.se had
seemed to lay hold of every nervo
and muscle and artery and bone.
Alexander the Great, starting for
the wars in Persia, divided his property among the Macedonians. He
gave a village to one. a port to another, a field to another and all his
estate to his friends. Then Perdic-
cas nsked, "What have you kept for
yourself'.1" lie answered triumphantly, "Hope." And, whatever else
you and I give away, we must keep
for ourselves hope—all comforting,
all cheering hope. In the heart of
every man, woman and child that
hears or reads this sermon may God
implant this principle right now!
Many have full assurance that    oli
is right  with the soul.      They     are
as sure  of heaven  as  if they      had
passed      in   pearly   panels     of     tho
gate,   ns  though  they  were     already
seated  in  the temple of God unrolling      thc    libretto     of  the  heavenly
chorister.      I  congratulate all   such.
I wish  I  had  it  too—full  assurance
—hut  with   me  it  is   hope.      "Which
hope."       Sinful,   it   expects   forgiveness;   troubled,   it  expects  relief;   bo-
reft,   it expects reunion;  clear    down
it expects wings to lift; shipwrecked,
it expects  lifeboat;  bankrupt,   it expects  eternal  riches;   a. prodigal.     it
expects   the    wide   open  door   of   the
father's   farmhouse.      It  does      not
wear itself out by looking backward;
it. always   looks   forward.      What   is
the use  of giving so much  time     to
the      rehearsal   of  the  past'.'      Your
mistak's are nol  corrected   by a review.        Your    losses  cannot,        by
broodini; over  them,   he  turned  into
gnins.     It is the future that lias the
most. f'ir us.  nnd  hope cheers us on.
We have nil  committed blunders; but
does  the  calling  of  the  roll  of  them
make     them  any   the  less  blunders ?
Look   ahead   in   nil   matters  of     usefulness However   much   you   may
hnve accomplished for God   and   Hie
world's    betterment,    your    greatest
usefulness is to come.      "No,"     says
some one,   "my    health      is     gone."
"No."     says some  one,   "my   money
is    gone."      "No."   says   some    one;
"tin' most of my years are gone and
therefore my usefulness."     Why, you
talk like an infidel.     Do you suppose
that   all your capacity to do good is
fenced in by this life?     Are you going to be o lounger nnd a do-nothing
after you  have quit this world?      It
is my business to tell you that your
faculties are to  be  enlarged  and  intensified  and  your  qualifications  for
usefulness  multiplied  tenfold,   a   hundredfold,   a   thousandfold.
Is your health gone? Then that
is a sign thai .vou are to enjoy a
celestial health compared with which
the must Jocund nnd hilarious vitality of earth is invalidism. Are
your fortunes spent? Remember.
yon are to be kings and queens unto
hod.      And  how much  more  wealth
you wil! have when you reign fo.i-
ever and ever! 1 want to see you
when you get your heavenly wTork
dress on. This little bit of a speck
of a world we call the earth is only
the place where we get ready to
work. We are only journeymen
here, but will be master workmen
there. Heaven will have no loafers
hanging around. The book says of
the inhabitants, "They rest not day
nor night." Why rest wheu they
work without fatigue? Why seek
a pillow when there is no night
there? I want to see you after the
pedestrianism of earth has been exchanged for power of flight and velocities infinite and enterprises interstellar,   interworld.
Am I not right in saying that
eternity can do more for us than can
time? What will we not be able to
do when our powers of locomotion
shall be quickened into the immortal spirit's speed? Why should a
bird have a swiftness of wing when
it is of no importance how long it
shall take to make its aerial way
from forest to forest and we, who
have so much more important errand in the world, get on so slowly?
The roebuck outruns us, the hounds
are quicker in the chase, but wait
until God lets us loose from all limitations and hinderiuents. Then we
will fairly begin. The starting post
will be the tombstone. Leaving tho
world will be graduation day before
the chief work of our mental and
spiritual career. Hope sees the
door opening, the victor's foot in
stirrup for the mounting. The day
breaks—first flush of the horizon.
The mission of hope will be an everlasting mission, as much of it in the
heavenly hereafter as in the earthly
now. Shall we have gained all as
soon as we enter realms celestial —
nothing more to learn, no other
heights to climb, no new anthems to
raise, a monotony of existence, the
same thing over and over again for
endless years? No! More progress
in that world than we ever made in
this. Hope will stand on the hills
of heaven and look for ever brightening landscapes, other transfigurations of color, new glories rolling
over the scene, new celebrutions of
victories in other worlds, heaven rising into grander heavens, seas- of
glass mingled with fire, becoming a
more brilliant glass mingling with a
more flaming fire.     "Which hope."
Now, let me introduce this feeling
into the lives of some who nre at
times hopeless. There is a family
whose son has gone wrong. Father
and mother have about given him
up, he seems so headlong, so ungrateful, so dissipated, and the bid
folks do not know half the story of
moral precipitation. He has ceased writing home, but they hear of
him through people who like to
carry bad news and every time the
report is more deplorablel
swears, he gambles, he drinks,
goes into all the shambles of
His former employer says the
  is no
hope for him, and all outside tho
family agree in thinking he. will never reform. The father and mother
have not quite given him up, and
these words are to strengthen their
hope. That boy is going to come
back. You have a hold on him
that you must not relax. Through
prayer you may win the eternal God
for your side of tho struggle. You
must enlist all tho heavenly dominions, cherubim and seraphim and
archangel, in the movement to save
you sou. Some day or some night
he will call a halt to his infamous
practices. Something will happen
to him, as happened in a New York
hotel to a son of one of the most
distinguished clergymen in Scotland
and one of the queen's chaplains.
"When can I see you?" said a distinguished-looking young man :.t the
close of one of my services in Brooklyn tabernacle. 1 said, "You can
see mc now." lie said: "No; I
want a private conversation with
you at your own house. When can
I come?" I said, "To-morrow
night." "Your name,"  I     asked.
He gave me his name, tlie exact
name of hi, father, whose name was
known r.nd is known through the
Christum world, though years ago
he departed this 1 "e. Returning
Home, I tool* ,ip n took
of which his father was Hie author, and in the picture at the opening of the book I found that the
young man had most markedly his
father's features. So 1 was sure
there was no deception.
On the following evening he enme.
ITe said that he was the black sheep
of tho family flock. Ile had wandered thc world over and been in all
kinds of wickedness, but a few
nights before, after rending a letter
from his mother in Scotland, he had
retired for Bleep, but in the adjoining
room he heard some young men in
such horrible conversation that he
could not sleep. He was shocked as
ho had never before been by the talk
bad men.       Ile aroso, struck      a
light, took out the letter from
mother and knell down by his bedside nnd said, "0 Lord God of mv
mother, have mercy on me!" lie said
thut since tlmt prayer he was entirely changed and loved what he before
hated, and hated what he . before
loved, and asked whnt 1 thought it
all meant. I replied, "You have
become a Christian." Ho said he
might be called at nny time to leave
the city. I never saw him again, but
it seemed to me that he had turned
his buck upon his wicked past and
had started in the right, direction
And it may be so with your boy.
Write him often. Tell him how you
ure all thinking nf liim nt home, and
if may be, your letter in hand, he
may call upon his mother's God to
help and save him. Hope, you of the
gray hair and wrinkles! Heaven fins
its thousands of souls who were
once as thoroughly wrong ns your
boy is. They repented, uud Ihey nro
with the old folks in the healthy ah
of the eternal hills, where they have
become young again.
To another class of persons I introduce the angel of hope, nnd they
are the invalids. 1 cannot take the
diagnosis of your disorder, but let
hope cheer you with one ol two
thoughts. Such marvelous cures are
being wrought in our day through
medication and surgery that your
invalidism mny yet be mastered. Persons     as ill as you have got     well.
Cancer and tuberculosis will yet five
way before some new discovery. I
see every day people strong and well
who not long ago I saw pallid and
leaning heavily on a staff and hardly able to climb stairs.
But if you will not take the hand
of hope for .arthly convalescence let
me point you to the perfect body you
are yet to have if you love and serve
the Lord. Death will put a prolonged anaesthetic upon your present
body, and you will never again feel
an ache or pain, and then in his
good time you will have a resurrection body, about which we know nothing except thnt it will be painless
and glorious beyond all present appreciation. What must be the
health of that laud which never feels
cut of cold or blast of heat and
where there is no east wind sowing
pneumonias on the air, your fleet/*
ness greater than the foot of deer,
your eye sight clearer than eagle in
sky. perfect health, in a country
where all the inhabitants are everlastingly well! You who have in
your body an encysted bullet ever
since the civil war; you who have
kept alive only by precautions and
self denials and perpetual watching
of pulse and lung; you of the deafened ear and dim vision and the severe buckache; you who have ndt
been free from pain for ten years,
how do you like this story of physical reconstruction, witli all weakness
and suffering substracted and everything jocund and bounding added?
Do not have anything to do with
the gloom that Harriet Marti—eau
expressed in her dying words: "I
have no reason to believe in another
world. 1 havo had enough of life
in one and can see no good reason
why Harriet Martineau should be
perpetuated." Would you not rather
have tho Christian enthusiasm of
Robert Annan, who when some one
said. "I will be satisfied if I mun-
nge somehow to get into henven," replied, pointing to a sunken vessel
that was being dragged up the River
Tay: "Would you like to be pulled
into heaven with two tugs like that
vessel yonder? I tell you I Would
like to go in witli nil my sails set
and colors  flying."
Again, let. me introduce the element of hope to those good people
who are in .' ipalr about the world's
moral Condi! ■■ i They have gathered up uppulli.iri statistics. They tell
of the number of divorces, but do
not take into consideration that
there are a thousand happy homes
whero there is one of marital discord. They tell you of the large
number in our land who are living
profligate lives, but forget to mention that there are many millions of

doors — one door'open for all who
will enter for pardon and consolation
and thc other door opening into the
heavens for the ascent of souls prepared for translation.
Let Hope say to the foreboding:
"Do all you can with Bible and spelling book and philosophic apparatus,
but toil with the sunlight, in your
faces or your efforts will be a failure. The pallor in the sky is not
another phase of the night, Imt the
first sign of approaching day. which
is as sure to come as to-night will
bo followed witli to-morrow. Things
are not going to ruin. The Lord's
hosts are not going to be drowned
in the Red sea of trouble. Miriam's

'Israel Delivered.' High hope for the
home! High hope for the church]
High hope for the world!
I introduce the angel of Hope to
thoso who through disease have lost
Christian friends. "Ilow cculd I lind
them." says a bereft soul, "up there
in thc land of the nultiuidinous?"
You may find them by inquiry, by
heavenly escort and by unfailing
memory of the guard at the gate.
"And he carried me away in the
spirit to a great and high mountain
and showed me that great city, the
holy Jerusalem, descending out of
heaven from God, having thc glory
of God, aiul her light was like unto a
stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear ns crystal, and had a
wall grent und high and had twelve
gates and at thc gates twelve angels." So you see there will be an
angel guarding each gate. As you
go iu nsk thc armed guard. He saw
your loved one pass through and will
know the direction to take and by
what fountain or in what street of
gold is the mansion prepared. The
blessed Christ knows where your departed loved one is. and he Will tell
you if no one else will. Fifty ways
of finding out the whereabouts of
your ascended one. "But will 1 surely know him when I get there, for he
will be so changed?" Yes, for yon
will be just us much changed, nnd
the old nihility will assert Itself. The
soul will be as easily distinguished
by soul there as on enrth the bods-
is distinguished  by  the body.
Then cultivate hope in regard to
your own health, your own financial
prosperity, your own longevity, l.y
seeing how in other people God mercifully reverses things and brings to
pass tin* unexpected, remembering
Hint Washington lost more battles
than he gained, but triumphed at. the
lust, and, further, by making sure of
your eternal Safety through Jesus
Christ, understand that you arc on
the way to palaces and thrones. This
life is a span long, ending in durations of bliss that neither human
nor archangolic faculties can measure
or estimate — redolence of a springtime thnt never ends and fountains
tossing in the light of a sun that
never sets. May God thrill us with
anticipations of this immortal glee!

1 said in the opening of this subject that my text was only the wave
on the beach, while the whole verse
from which it is laken is an ocean.
But the ocean tides are coining in.
and the sea is getting so deep I must

Tbe    Story    of    a    Bran    Founder's
Transformation of Gambrlnna.
A story is told of a brass founder
who was one day visited by a friend
acting as agent for one of the cities of
Central America. Tbe agent asked
what it would cost to cast a statue of
Christopher Columbus for the public
square of the city. The amount wns
far in excess of the sum which tbe man
had at his disposal. He was about
leaving In despair of being able to secure the statue when the brass founder
"Come back In the junk yard and let
us see whnt can be found there."
He went back, nnd tbe brass founder
showed blm n colossal statue of GntO-
brinus, recently removed from the
front of a large brewing establishment
Coder his feet rested n beer keg. In bis
hand was n large and overflowing
schooner, his beard was long and shaggy, nnd about his brows was wreathed
a garland of barley and hops.
"Why, this will never do." said the
commission merchant. "I want a statue of Columbus."
"Wait until I have touched this one
up. Come hack in about n week and
see what you think of it. If it suits
you, you can have It for tbe amount
you have at your disposal."
As soon ns the visitor had gone the
brass founder set two men at work on
the figure of Gambrinus. They removed the beer keg from under his
right foot and placed there nn anchor
and a coil of rope, from his hnnd they
removed the goblet and substituted a
globe, with the continents traced on
it; from his brow they took the wreath
of barley nnd hops and substituted a
wreath of laurel and then proceeded to
trim up his whiskers. The finishing
touch consisted In putting at the base
of the statue "Crlstoforo Colombo."
When the commission merchant came,
lie was delighted with the figure and,
purchasing It, shipped It to the Central
American city, where It adorns the
public square nnd Is looked upon wdtb
veneration by the citizens of that town.

"Speaking of Insurance matters,"
said a listener, "I suppose the plain,
old fashioned null has caused more
fires in the big establishments where
machinery is used In many and complicated ways thnn nny other little
thing In existence. The only thing
needed Is for It to come In contact with
some other hnrd material with sufficient force to cnuse a spark and beat
generation. Nails hnve really produced
a heavy per cent of the cotton tires of
the country. During recent years, on
nccount of steps taken by the owners
and conductors of the larger cotton and
byproduct plants at the instance of Insurance men, the nail has uot been
sueh n prolific producer of fires.
"A way has been found, for instance,
in cotton gins, cotton mills nnd In
plants where cottonseed are put
througli manufacturing processes, of
extracting nails and other weighty nnd
flinty substances that may find lodgment fn these Inflammable products.
Gravity Is the natural force used. Nails
and rocks and materials of this kind
are heavier than cotton and Its byproducts, nnd they have n tendency to
force their way to the bottom oT the
heap. By allowing these products to
pass over a rolling belt arrangement
these heavier materials filter toward
the bottom and are finally extracted,
so that when the cotton or the cottonseed passes through the grind in the
various manufacturing processes there
is but little danger from lire so far bb
these things are concerned."-

''Always before we move," .old Mr.
Hilltops, "we go through everything in
the storeroom and cull out and throw
awny the things that we don't want. If
we never moved, I don't know but what
finally we'd be buried under the accumulation of things which from time to
time we save.
"We save tons of newspaper clippings
alone, and we always have a pile of
luagnziiies containing articles that we
want to read over again, but never do.
We put away old clothes and don't know
what not of things we've got through
with thnt are of no earthly use to us, but
that we hate to throw away. And how
we do hang on to some of these tilings!
Why, say, we've got boxes and trunks
containing things that we've saved »n
that way that we've been lugging around
fer years, paying to have them moved
and giving up room for the storing of
thein, that wc never look into nt all. We
couldn't tell what was in some of them
without looking, but they are things we
sort of hate to throw away, and so we
keep lugging 'em around.
"I don't want to drag in melancholy
thoughts in a cheerful conversation, hnt
I find myself wondering sometimes now,
as I grow older, what will become of nil
this truck we save up in this way when
we die. It will all be just lying there,
and those who come after us will look at
it and wonder what under the canopy
we saved it for, and then they'll throw
it away, which I tell Mrs. Billtops we
might just ns well do now ourselves and
get rid of it. There's nothing in the
whole blessed storeroom that we might
not with perfect safety throw right out
without ever looking at it. Oh, of course,
that is rather a sweeping assertion, but
nevertheless it is substantially true that
nil that miscellaneous array of boxee and
bundles there, of odds nnd ends of one
sort nnd another, we might just as well
throw away bodily, and we never'd mi.is
'em. We had a curious experience in
this way last fall.
"Weeding thtogs out, then, in thc usual
manner, we set out of tlie storeroom one
dny three big boxes of stuff to look over.
Hut somehow these boxes gut mixed ;n
with the stuff that had been looked ovc-
and was ready to throw awny, and nwny
they went, never looked at:, nnd we never
discovered it till the next day. Then
there was a time! Mrs. Hilltops wanted
to have me go right away and find out
what dump the things collected on our
block wont to, and see if I couldn't get
the boxes hack. Our oldest daughter,
I.iieiniht. wns sure the green box contained all of her very best patterns, and
1 don't remember now what other things
of tremendous value those boxes did contain, but I staved the folks off somehow
from day to day, and gradually they felt
easier about it and in a week they forgot it.
"That wns a year ago, nnd do you suppose we've missed anything? Why, not
a thing. There wasn't anything In those
boxes that we really wanted to use. If
there had been, we would have kept on
using it, but we hated to throw the stuff
"I tell Mrs. Billtops. as I said before,
that it would be perfectly safe to clenr
out the whole storeroom without looking
nt the stuff at all; just throw the whole
thing right away; that we never Htore
cash there, nor title deeds, nor anything
of real value. Hut she says no: she'd
rather look things over, and I suppose
that some of these old things, anyhow,
mny have in old associations a value
that will make us cling to them to the

a Came Where Aiiviit Cadets Turned
Discipline Into a Joke.
Among other good stories told by
Cyrus Townsend Brady in his "Under
Tops'ls nml Tents," published by Scrib-
Ders, is this:
It is related that a large number of
naval cadets were negligent iu following the service in the chapel, which was
after the ritual of the Episcopal
church. An incautious officer in charge
on Sunday morning made a little nd-
dreSB to the church party on the subject, saying he supposed that some of
them erred through Ignorance, but if
they would observe him carefully nud
do ns he did—in military parlance, follow the motions of the commanding officer—they would not go wrong.
Word was passed quietly through the
battalion. They marched into the
church. The officer in charge took his
plnce in tbe front pew, settled himself
in his sent and calmly blew his nose.
Three hundred noses were blown si-
multnneously with a vehemence that
was startling. The officer looked around
and blushed violently in grent surprise.
Three hundred bends "followed the motions of the comuiandi-g officer." Six
hundred cheeks violently tried to blush,
a hnrd thing to for n midshipmun to do,
nnd so on through the service.
The man could not stir without instant imitation. Ue Dually confined
himself strictly to the prescribed ritual of the service, lookiug neither to
the right nor to the left, not dnrlng to
raise a finger or breathe out of tbe or-
dlnnry course. This enterprise nlso
wns a startling success.
The cadets received other instructions
later in the day from a furious officer
who sternly resented their Innocent
statements that they did not know
which wns ritual and which was not
and that he bad uot Instructed them
that blowiug his nose stood on a different plane from saying his prayers. It
v;as a huge Joke everywhere.
J. 0. C. Bremner's staghounds killed a porcupine last week. Mr. Bremner took 24 quills out of the mouth
of one of the dogs and a large number out of the mouths of the others.
Some of the quills had worked their
way through the roof of the dog's
mouth and were ,pulkd out point
foremost through the skin of the
nose. They had penetrated the bony
structure of the dog's mouth and
nose in their passage. The -dogs are
very little the worse now, although
their mouths were very sore for a
time. Porcupines are very seldom
seen here.—Edmonton Bulletin.

How to Keep the Baby Healthy and
Happy-—Avoid the So-called
Soothing Medicines.
Every mother is naturally solicitous as to the health of her children, but not everyone treats their
little troubles in the right way. The
so-called soothing remedies are still
used altogether too much, although
physicians have preached against
them for many years. The fact, lhat
they put children to sleep is no sign
that they are helpful. On the contrary, soothing drugs are dangerous
and distinctly harmful. At the
slightest sign of Ill-health or disorders, give the little ones Baby's
Own Tablets. The medicine is purely vegetable, and is guaranteed to
contain no opiate or poisonous
soothing stuff. For indigestion, sour
stomach, colic, constipation, simple,
fevers, diarrhoea, the irritation accompanying the cutting of teeth,
j there can lie no better, no safer remedy than this. Baby's Own Tablets
are a sweet, pleasant little tablet
| which any child will take readily,
and dissolved in water, may be given
(with absolute safety to the youngest
j infant. Mothers who have used these
* tablets cheerfully testify to the bene-
i fit. their little ones have derived from
them Mrs. II. J_. McFarlane, Bristol,
Que., says: "In my estimation
I Baby's Own Tablets have no equal
jas a medicine for little ones. In
cases of children teething I would
not lie without them on any account,
as they keep my baby healthy nnd
happy." Druggists keep them, but
if you cannot find them conveniently,
send 26 cents direct to us and we
will forward a box by mail prepaid.

part of some wasps In Gloucester, England.
The wasps were noticed going In and

the lock removed to satisfy his curiosity about the doings of the busy workers. He found a nest inside. The cells

Numberless are ihe tricks which
newspaper reporters play upon one
another to relieve the sombre "grinding" of their calling. Two young
men, employed in a morning paper
in a large city, were detailed ono
day to call upon the resident Chinamen and "interview" them respecting
some immigration measure then
pending in Congress. One of the
two reporters was a beginner, and
the other an experienced man., naturally assumed the management of
the  assignment.
"Hillings," he said, nfter they had
invaded several laundries without
any important results, "here is a
tea store. 1 wish you would go in
and talk with the proprietor. I
want to know what he thinks about
Chinamen voting. I'll go and pull
oil an interview with the man who
runs this cigar-shop next door. He-
member to use tho very simplest English at your command."
The young reporter went inside the
tea store, took out his note book,
and thus addressed the proprietor,
who happened to be alone at the
moment :
"John, how ? Me—mo telegraph,
John ! Newspnpe—savvy,    John ?
Ncwspapc—print things. Un'stan ?
Me want know what John think
about Chinaman vote, see ? What
John think — Chinamen — vote —
all surac Melicnu man ? Savvy,
John ?     Vote ?     Whnt think 7"
The Chinaman listened to him wltb.
profound gravity until he had finished,  and replied :
"The question of granting the right
of suffrage to Chinese citizens who
have come to the United .Stales witli
the avowed intention of making this
country their permanent home is one
that has occupied the attention of
thoughtful men of all parties for
years, and it may become in time
one of onraniount importance. At
present, however, it seems to me
there is no exigency requiring an
expression of opinion from me upon
this subject. You will please excuse me."
The young reporter went outside
and leaned against a lamp-post to
rost and recover from a sudden
faintness that had taken hold of
him. His comrade hnd "steered him
against" one of the best educated
Chinamen in tlie United states.

To go to India and not see the wonderful Taj Mahal at Agra would be as gieat
1 sacrilege ns going to Egypt aud missing
iho pyramids. Agra is a small place
about midway on a line drawn frurn Calcutta to Bombay. The English ollicers
who have to spend the summer there lie
in lied all day, with coolies to fan them
and pull the "punka." Therefore I was
constrained to do my sightseeing at night,
it was the time of the full moon, which
in India means a grand illumination, u
light excellent by which to read.
After a three mile drive over an excellent macadamized road my "giiarri-
wallnh" turned into a large courtyard,
which was surrounded with temples built
of red sandstone. These temples would
be lirst class wanders anywhere else, but
anxious to see the "pearl of thc orient"
I started up the steps and through tha
great red doorway, only to stop in amaze-
ment at the inner doorway at my firs*
view of the Taj Mahal. The moonlight
struck full on its pearly dome and threw
into violent relief the slim minarets at its
corners. In front was the water in the
score of fountains, giving forth its own
reflections of the beautiful marble masterpiece, and all around tlie somber, dense
tropical foliage for a setting.
The harmony of the proportions makes
the Taj Mahal look small. Yet it took
20,000 workmen twenty years to complete
it, and it cost about $10,000,000. Standing in its superb doorway I found it
would take seven men placed one upon
the other to reach the top of this doorway. There are no windows—ouly marvelous screens cut in the forms of intertwining vines and flowers and out of immense marble slabs. Even in the center,
where the great sarcophagi lie in which
the builder and his wife are resting, the
decorations are of marble inlaid with
precious stones. The inscriptions are of
black marble inlaid ou white. And the
moonlight obliterated the grain and thc
seams iu the marble with its sheen, and
it was as though this monument to a
faithful wife was oue piece of dazzling
Though centuries have passed its perfection is as grand at this time as when
first built. Even uuder the sunlight tht
next day, when it was not so much a
thing ethereal, no signs of decay were
apparent. It seems that this tribute of
tlie goodness of a great Indian monarch
to liis loviag wife will stand for ages,
telling how one Hindoo had heen faithful
to his love and had raised her up to a
pedestal above him in a country where
womankind is but a slave.*

God made both tears and laughter,
and both for kind purposes ; for, as
laughter enables mirth and surprise
to breathe freely, so tears enable sorrow to vent itself patiently. Tears
hinder sorrow from becoming despair and madness ; and laughter i.s

being confined to the human species.
