Cleaning   out  seeds   tor   next  year's  crops   will  soon   be   in  order.     Cleaning  si'od   grain  should  not   be     merely   freeing  as   much   as  possible   from  weed seeds, but every effort-should be  made   to   retain   the  heaviest,   plump-,  est  and   best developed  kernels.   Farmers  who  raise  lots  of  wheat- should  not   wait   with     seed ��� wheat, cleaning  until   the  greater   part   of   their   crop  is sold.     'A'better'plan'--is  to  screen  out a larger quantity than, is needed  and      then     run  that  over  a  second  time,   adjusting  the  wind  so  as      to  throw over the light kernels that may  not have gone over by the first opor-  not -have been gone over  by   the   first  operation,   and  to  use such  a screen  sieve below as seems to retain only the  best sized  kernels.       Oats  should  be  just'-.as,., thoroughly    cleaned.     It is  more  essential  to  get. the  foul   seeds  out  of  the  feod grains-that out      of  market crops.     The reason for     this  is . apparent.      When  market      crops  are sold,     the    weeds go  with them.  Not so  with'   the  feed grain.      Rven  when     they  are ground     some  small  seeds may go through unmolested  only to go back on  the land with     tlie  manure,   where   they   are  given       the  best chance to grow a vigorous weed.

The, bright,.    ,late-uinteiy sunshine  continued,     but    its     softness   wore  away,   there was   a cold fierce unrelenting      biilliance      in     the    blank  breadth  of light    pom ing from ,  the  cloudless ��ky,   it  was  that treacherous radiance through which the east  wjnd stings  with  unsuspected sharp-  ���>wss;  Icicles made fine filigree    work  round  the    mill-pound  and  depended  from the bridge arches-and the mill-  wheel,  the roads wore like iron,    the  , gieat willow  on the  banTt  shuddered  in the keen wind, and complained audibly as if against    some    conscious  cruelty;      all     the   little eager buds,  which  had  been   pushing too  hastily  forward     in the gcneiul air, stopped  in     their   sheltering -cases,  rebuked  tind    silent,    and      many  little birds  who.se  courtship  had   already     made  considerable    progress, rwero    obliged  sorrowfully to  postpone tho wedding  day,   and   drooped,   disappointed   and  ionglc-s      bunches   ol  feathers,  upon  ll)e  dry,   crackling  boughs.  This   keen   cruel  wind raved cxult-  . ingly over tho ol'en nnd exposed cem-  eteiy;  it   lifted  tho  pall  from     Mrs.  Meade's coffin and  tossed the clergyman's      surplice  irreverently     about  him and fluttered the ,leaves of     his  book; it pluyed with Philip liandnl's  thick  curly   hair,   and   whistled      derisively through the gray thin   locks  on Mr.  Meade's  uncovered' head.  But  neither Philip  nor  his father .hecdod  the cold wind in the bitter    blast of  bcrea'val     that beat upon them,      as  they     stood by the yawning    grave,  -which   swallowed   up   Philip's     childhood   and buried    Matthew   Meade's  youth and early manhood,  the struggles of life's noon  and the soft sunbeams  of  declining years,'  malting *" a  dead silence  of more than  half     his  memoiies.      He shivered while    they  drove      slowly     home;   and  scarcely  took any notice whcncJcs=ie led liini  to  an arm-chair  by  the blazing    fire,  she had   made    and gave him    some'  hot spiced  drink.      lie continued   to  shiver,  and refused food; it was   too  evident that the   bitter   . w'ind     had  struck      home.     '   Cousin  Jane,      in  whoso hands he was, now the gentlest  of lambs, had him put into a warm  bed   at-dusk    and   dosed 'him    with  various      homely    remedies   of  own.  "Dear heart," she said after  last visit to him that night  never thought to feel that loving to  Matt Meade; many a spar we've' had  together, to be sure. Put to see him  lying there, poor lamb, and taken'  whate\er you give en, as meek as a  babe, 'tis enough to melt the heart  of a stone. 'And I'm sure I fieely  forgive him all���not that I didn't  gne him as good as he sent. Dear,  dear, I do think I never done your  poor  father  justice, VTcssie.   It  isn't  her'  her.  "I  every man would take on  liko    that  for a wife, and it's not a ninny 'I, with a'wide appealing gaze  seen took so bad with a chill all of  a sudden," here Mrs. Plummer paused to cry with a cheeiful sense of  the value of her physic and nursing,  and of Mr. Meade's double virtue  both in falling ill and in appieciat-  mg it.  "I never yet could     be    called     a  croaker,"  she  added,   "but I've seen  that in Matthew Meade's "face to-day  is only seen once."  "Mrs. Plummer," cried Philip,  "don't talk nonsense. Is this a  proper way to speak before Jessie?"  "It shan't be said that I didn't  prepare his family before hand,"  continued Mrs. Plummer,  dolorously.  "I shall go for Maul at'once,"  said Philip, freeing Jessie's slight  "and drooping form from the clasp in  which he had taken it when he saw  her stagger under her cousin's words.  "My poor Kitten, Father is upset,  but there is nothing to fear."  Philip's words were too true, 'there  was nothing either to fear or hope  for Sir. Meade; the cold had struck  to his vitals, and broken down as he  was by the shock of his sudden sor-  -row he had not strength to throw it  off, but succumbed at once.  Four dajs after Mrs. Meade's funeral, riiilip and Jessie were watching by his- bed in silence, as the  evening was closing  in.  Mr. Moado had passed from delirium to stupor, and had lain unconscious for many hours; but now it  seemed to I'hifip, as the firelight  played on the sick man's features,  that a light of intelligence was also  pla\ing fitfully upon them, and that  the eyes gazod wistfully with a  gleam of recognition and showed a  mental struggle  passing  within.  '���'Do you know me father ?" he  asked,     bending   down and. speaking:  Boftly.   .. . .'-.���'.-, y.'  " "Philip," he replied, with a faint  smile; the .effort, of speaking overcame him and for a 'moment or two  he relapsed into his stupor. Philip's  heart throbbed; he made a sign to  'Jessie, but she did not heed it.. She  was reclining in an arm-chair on the  side of the hearth, her head drooped  ��'n her shoulder, "and her eyes closed.  He could not boar to break her slumber, even with words of hope. So  the silence throbbed on fitfully,  marked by the light, thin crackling  of ���Jinnies,' the faint fall of little cinders, nnd lhe tapping of a rose-  feju*rt,y on   the window-pane.  Philip had laid his strong pink  hand'jOn'the brown purple-veined ono  lying on the coverlet, and felt his  father's ebbing life-beats more  strongly beneath' tho welcome touch,  while the death-hazed eyes continued to gaze with dumb appeal into  his.  "Dear father, do you want anything ?" he asked. "Jessie is here,  asleep in the chair."  "Money," tho sick man murmured  faintly. "All for you. Speculations  ���losses���sell the mill."  "I understand," Philip ��� replied, in  a soothing voice; "but you will be  well again soon and set the mill going. , Listen; it is going now." Hut  even as Philip spoke the familiar  throb, throb of the mill ceased, the  wheel stood .still and the men went  home for their Sunday rest.  fn the "meantime tho Miller spolco  brokenly of mortgages, of his will,  of which Philip was joint executor  with Mr.' Cheeseinan, of Jessie, who  was to'be under their guardianship  and that of Mrs. Plummer; he seemed to gather stiongtiras he, spoke,  and, having .taken some icstorativo  and asked Philip*, to raise him to a  sitting posture, recovered his faculties in a brief flare-up of his flickering life, y  The precious moments flew; but  Philip could not- bring himself - to  rouse Jessie from the sleep so long-  denied her. lie had so much to  hear in that gleam of consciousness  for Jessie's sake and must still keep  back the burning long-reprcsfed de^  sire to learn the *secrct of his birth  whi.li would otherwise die with Matthew Meade. He wished that on his  return fiom- the Crimea his father  had not persuaded'-.him' to wait a'  little" and consider whether it was  worth while to know a secret his  young mother had taken such pro-  cautions to keep and which a curious  chance, alone revealed to his adopted  father.  In the stirring days of the war,  the question of his birth had troubled him little, but.thejl'ong-months" of  garrison life, at home -hud"V brought  it strongly' before him and" he had  lately- decided that he must know it'  at the'-'fust opportunity.' And ' now  the last opportunity -was " slipping'  away with every beat'of tlie ebbing  pulse  in his  hand.  "Poor little Jessie'!" her father  sighed. .-"It's hard leaving -her. And  no mother. . But you'll' bo good to  her, It troubles "mc that I was not  the husband I'might "have' been'. " I"  didn't consider how she was set on  having things clean and straight,  poor soul. I was rough at times���  yes; I'was rough." His eyes closed  and Philip feared that the golden  sands wero run out. But the faint  pulse beat on and suddenly quickened  when Matthew Meade opened his eyes  ' "She  .-cl her heart on it, poor Soul," he  continued," "though she never thought  you was to be left alone and ��� not  delations enough to. live together.  Many a time we talked 'of it., .Philip  you must marry Jessie,"' he. concluded; in tones so strong and urgent as almost to exhaust his ebbing  breath,   which   came gaspingly    and.  lustre���on Matthew Meade's unconscious'features, Jessie's tumbled gold  hair and tearful face, Philip's look  of agony, and the two young living  hands clasped in the stiffening fingers. Then it sank and left tlio  group by "the bed in shadow  (To be  Continued.)  Some  then seemed to stop. 'At the-word  "marry," ' which opened an entirely  new world of thought and feeling to  him, Philip s-'tartcd so' violently and  suddenly that he almost dropped tho  hand clinging to his, (-.hook a tablo  by the bedside so that the bottles  opon it' rattled and a glass -foil  against them .with'a faint crash that  iccalled the intelligence to the dying  eyes fixed on Philip's face. Tho  crystalline tinkle brol.c through Jessie's light .-lumber, she started up  and came forward, just as .-Philip,  with a half dazed looli, replied iu  the affirmative.-  "My maid," said Mr. Moado. taking her tremulous hand as she touched his in bending to kiss him with  .sonic broken words of joy that he  was himself again. "I am going  fast. But Philip will care for-you.  Look to him now���Jo .sic���,\ou must  mairy Philip,."  She could not speak, but she suffered her hand to be placed in  Philip's, which closed warmly upon  it. Her father held the joined hands  in his tremulous clasp with .silent  content awhile, then he whispered  "Promi'c."*  Thoy promised; the old man's fingers tightened on the two young  hands; his eyes grew luv/y; thoy saw  nothing earthly in their blank  gaze.   .  "Father !" cried Philip, "who am  I ? Tell me before'you go." 7 ,  ��� The haze of death once more cleared away, the eyes once more brightened with intelligence and rested  lovingly on the young man's face.  "Philip," Mr. Meade replied with an  effort.      "Philip !"���  The voice, failed, the eyes clouded  and remained fixed, the hand closed  convulsively over those of the'. .jtwo  young people. Just then the door  opened softly and, Mrs. Plummer  stole noislessly in, followed by Dr.  Maule. They stood still arrested by  tho sight. Mrs. Plummer wltTi uplifted hands and startled gaze, the  doctor hastily taking a pinch . of  snuff.   The fire blazed up with sudden  PERSONAL POINTERS.  Notes     of.

Tho Davenport representative ot  tho London Express learns that the  new* battleship Hibcrnia,' just 'laid'  down in the dockyard, is to be specially fitted for the storage of oil  fuel in very large quantities, and  that 'her sister ships, the Britannia  and Africa,' will undoubtedly fce ad- ���  apted in tlie same fashion. ,  i fn the course of a chat with one  of "the principal officials of the,Navy,,  Construction Department at Devon-  port "Dockyard, the Express-representative gathered some interestingi  expert opinions upon the question of  oil, fuel ifor  warships.  The Hibernia, is-to have the whole',  of her false'bottom space'fitted with  storage .tanks,, and suggestion"'" 'hasf  boen raised as to whether coal firing  will no.t be altogether abolished in  the latest additions to the.King Edward  VII.  class.  A navy construction official gave it.  as his opinion that    oil fuel     would"  Ion? remain merely supplementary to"'|  coal firing in warships.   He admitted  that the    method    of employing *   it  would very soon be developed, to   * a  stage at' which1 it would prove, quite  as    effective   a    means of generating  motive power as coal.  This, notwithstanding, the coal  bunker was not likely to become 11  thing of the past in warships1 for a  long time to come.  Ono    point     which,     in  the  expert  view,   seriously   'militates      ' agrffnst  the' general  adoption  of the'oil. fuel  for   warship  purposes   is  its^danger-  oiisly  inflammable' quality.,'    An .example of this was cited by'thecCon-'  struction  Department   official. -Sonn  little  while ago,   when ' the  , German-  battleship  I-Tahcr    Wilhelm  XT.     wai.  carrying   out    steaming  trials,     Hhc  touched   a  rock'  with  sufficient   fore*  to perforate her  bilge plating  amidships.

Luckily tht  pumps were' set to work in time, and  proved.'equal, "to' keeping the'-lealr  "under:  -   "      ��� ".  - While this danger might be minimized by distributing the' oil in as  many' hermetic Ily sealed ';tanks as;  possible, it could never be quite.eliminated, and a bursting shell vroultf  doubtless cause havoc.

SHOWING- THEIR POINTS.  In tho procession now gatheiing  for the first parade, five if not six of  the seven ages arc repicscnted. There  are old men and women who cannot  walk upright, however the delal may  urge, others of middle age, with  yeais of active service before them;  young men full of vigor and youth,  fit for tho fields; young women���moving for once unveiled, yet unrobukod,  before the faces of men���and children  of every age���fiom babies, who will  be sold with their mothers, to girls  and boys on the threshold of manhood and womanhood. All arc dressed in bright colors, and displayed  to the best advantage, that tlie  hearts of biddeis may be mo\ed and  their purses opened widely.  "Jt will be a fine sale," says my  neighbor, a handsome, dignified  Moor, from one of the Atlas villages,  who had chosen his place befoie 1  had reached tho market. "There  must be well-nigh forty  slaves."  Now each delal has his people sorted out, and tho procession begins.  Followed by his bargains, he marches round and round the market.  Some of . the slaves are absolutely  free from emotion of any sort. Others feel their position.   . y    ���������  I learn that the delal's commission1  is 2�� per cent on the purchase price,  and there is a government tax of 5  per.cent. Slaves are sold under a  warranty, and are returned if they  have not been properly described by  the auctioneer. Bids must not be advanced by less then a Moorish dollar���that is about three shillings^���at  a time, and when a sale is concluded  a7 deposit-is paid at once, and tho  balance on , or after the following  day.

From the shores of Pyramid Lake,  near the Truckco Ri\er, Nevada, rite  the j'ock-co\ ered slopes of n musical  niountam. It is little known ta  man of the" present age, for it has  no mines, and the countiy about its  base is barren^and unfit for cuitiva-.  tion,-while lhe absence, of a railway"  or. coaching.-convenience puis it out  of the beaten track of the toun-its.  In 1863 it was first discovered by  a party of white settlers, who had  come prospecting from Comstoek,  and who pitched their camp' alongside a watcrholc at the foot of the  mountain.  When the sun'had gone down, and  the myriads of insets had ceased  their humming, nnd tlie animals had  sought their lans, a low sweet  sound of music !-ec:ned to emanate  from the mountain Mdo, beginning  like the tinkling of millions of fairy  bells, gradually swelling into a roll  of harmony, aud then stopping  almost  abruptly.  In a short time the operation was  repeated, and the sweetest sounds  that ci-or fell on human ear ro*=e in  the calm evening air. Theories,  wild and improbable were propounded by the prospectors, but no satisfactory icason was forthcoming, and |  the sounds continued at intervals',  throughout the night, becoming inaudible  at svni he.  After a time it was disco\or by  those men who developed a greater  interest in tho musical phenomenon  than in prospecting that the whole  of the mountain side was covciod  with thin flakes of crystalline rock,  lying in large beds, which were ever  moving slowly, like an avalanche,  towards    the     foot. Basing  their  theories on this discovery, thry arrived at the conclusion that lh��  ���strains of music arose , from tlie  friction of these plates one againi-t  the other; and that the sounas ol  tlie. world drowned the music by day |  which accounted for its only being  audible at night.  -fr  it  crunt  Some, lawyers    consider  to confess a crime.

Thut the many sheltered valleys  of the district can be profitably  utilized for the* production of hardy  vegetables, grain end hay, is well  nigh established, ' and the large  stretches of open country would  make excellent grazing lands.

WHERE   TO   PROSPECT7  Where to prospect for free milling  gold-bearing quartz,���is the question amongst many new arrivals  from the coast.  As distant fields are green.���and  expensive,���we would advise prospectors of the fact that free milling  gold has been struck in the Beavis,  Monro, Lake View and White Star  properties.    It will be observed,-on  reference   to  the  geological map,  that these mines run in a N. E. E.  direction from the lake to the head  of Boulder  Creek.     This mineral  zone we also recommend as being  near to tbe contact of the granite  and   the   sedimentary   rocks���the  slate   predominating    on   Boulder  Mountain.    A prospector working  from the estuary of. Fourth,of July  Creek, to the head of Boulder and  Ruby Creeks, a distance of about  fifteen   miles,  would have, a good  chance of,making a discovery, and  would not be far fiom his base of  supplies. ,        yyW^HATHORX.  ���Boulder Creek Items.  1.

O. Jlobinson was patrolling  the roads in tlie neighborhood of  Ulackhcath, London. It was dark,  and a thick fog hung low.  "Burglars' weather," remarked the  officer to himself ns he halted and  listened. "JL wonder whether the  gentleman who hns been so busy  round this neighborhood recently is  at work to-night."  lTiijjh! What was that?  Tlie constable craned forward, drew  "back, crouched, and ��� then starting  suddenly erect, called upon a man  who was .slouching past to halt.  ' l-'or answer there rang out a couple  of revolver shots. Bobinson was  hit, and staggered back, but,' inslanl-  ),���>��� recovering himself, he darted at  his would-be murdered.  Tho,latter fired three more shots,  which'missed, and tho next Instant  was felled to the ground by a'blow  from the constable's truncheon.  Even then, however, c he disdained  to. surrender. Instead,-he drew a  huge knife from an inner pocket of  his jacket, and tried to stab his captor in the stomach and throat.  'But in tho end he was overpowered  and taken to tho station. lie gave  his name as "Jem "Ward," and claimed to be a haU-caste sailor from America. ' Tlie empty revolver���.y fine,  brand-new weapon���was found securely strapped to his wrislr  At first his captors were inclined to  credit his story, but after a day or  two of confinement his face was noticed to have got perceptibly paler.  A closer examination revealed that  it had been stained with walnut-  Juice.  This discovery put the police on  their mettle. Hero, evidently, was  no ordinary criminal. So tho best  and keenest intellects at their ' disposal were sot to work to solve the  problem of their mysterious prisoner's identity.  And they succeeded in the end; but  only after long nnd patient inquiry.  At  first,   indeed,  they thought    his  name was   Johnson,  for under      this  - alias ho was found to havo been living in stylo in a fine house at Pcck-  h'am. ' "  >   But- afterwards.   it  was  discovered-  ' that he was in reality Charles Peace,  a_burglar by profession,  and  a murderer upon occasion. ,.   ,  ;-And then,  little  by little,  was mi-  -" ravelled    the     whole    of his  sordid,  strange  life-story.  Originally an ordinary laboring  man, Peace very early in his rarecr  made up his mind that hard work  was not nt all to his liking, and, after various escapades in different  parts of ihe country, ho blossomed  for lb. on the music-hall stage as "The  EUiiopiaiyPaganini."  TTe was fairly successful in his new  role, too, for he was a clever violinist. But ho wanted to get rich too  quickly, engineered a big burglary,  got caught, and received a sentence  01  live years'  penal .servitude.  On his release he organized the elaborate system of wholesale robbery,  which was eventually to render his  name notorious all over the civilized world.  IIo would have no male accomplices, and he confined himself to no locality. At Sheffield, Nottingham, and  elsewhere, as well as at Lambeth and  at Pcckhani, he rented houses in respectable localities, where lie passed  as a man of substance, and which he  used as depots for the proceeds of  his  burglaries.  When things began to get too hot  for hint at one place, he went to  another. At each of his numerous  houses he had installed a lady housekeeper, so that he always had ready  toJiand half a dozen secure and comfortable hiding places.  When not ''working," lie amused  himself with hi.v violin, on which,  however, he played only sacred music. He' was also a clever carver in  wood, and it was recalled afterwards  as a curious fact, that he carved little else save models of churches and  cathedrals. c  A not hor trait in his character that  served him in excellent stead was his  talent for disguises. At Pcckhani,  for instance.. he was a one-armed  man���his .artificial limb, made by  himself, is in tho Scotland Yard  Criminal Museum at this moment���  and even those who knew him most  intimately never once suspected the  trick that was being played upon  them.  At Nottingham he was a swarthy,  foreign-looking individual, 'who posed  us a lace merchant. Jn Sheffield ho  was believed  to  be  a  wealthy  dealer  For tlris latter crime an entirely  innocent man, named "William Harbon  was arrested and sentenced to the  gallows. Fortunately.the Home Secretary commuted ��� the death penalty  to one of life-long penal servitude,  and when Peace was condemned for  the murder of By son he confessed to  that of  Constable  Cock, and Harbon  was    released,  young man     had  years   in   prison,  compensation, for  But the unlucfty  then served seven  However, as some  this,  the Govcrn-  ca-  to  a  of  wife  ' rec-  in  real  estate.  "It was in tin's  met and  fell  in  1  Byson.   a  pretty  latter town that he  ove with Mrs. Kate  aud vivicacious little American woman. Her husband  objected to his too evident attentions. Whereupon Peace, who never  went unarmed, actually shot him dead  in  the. presence of his wife.  This dastardly murder was committed on November 22nd, 1870, and  it was not by any moans his, first.  Hardly eighteen, months previously,  a young policeman named Cock had  attempted to arrest him,while in the  act of breaking into a house, but,  Jess lucky or' less adroit than Robinson, had'fallen a victim to the burg-  Jar'e deadly revolver.  merit'awarded     him the sum of" $4,-  000. , '  Tlicso two murders were the only  ones that were actually brought  home to Teace, but it is believed  that he committed at least three  others. Indeed, during his long-  rcer of crime, he never hesitated  take life when ho thought such  course needful for tho furtherance  his many plans.  Nevertheless, the man was full of  strange contrasts. Ho had, for example, a pony which used to follow  him about like a dog, and' of which  he was inordinately fond. When it  was ill, he sat up with it night after  night, and on ' its death he broke  down utterly, crying bitterly for  hours together.  He kept .all sorts of pots, too���canaries, white mice, dogs, cats, a parrot,, and a goat, and ,was uniformly  kind to, all of them.    -  Over Romen he seemed to exercise  a species of magnetic fascination, and  tliis' despite a physiognomy that was  well-nigh repulsive in its ugliness.  ��� Tliere can be no shadow'of a doubt  that ho completely' won the heart of  the unfortunate Mrs. ''Dyson; and it  is significant that not one of his  many house-keepers betrayed him,"although they must have known perfectly wcli what his real business  was.. ���     ' -  His audacity knew no bounds. At  Hull, at a time when the streets of  the town were actually placarded  with* bills offering $o00 for information as to his whereabouts, ho took  lodgings in the house of a sergeant of  police, with a view to learning all  he could concerning the plans afoot  for-his capture. Ho was then so  cleverly disguised that his own  and son passed him by withou  ognizing him.  On another occasion a detective  from Shields, who happened to be in  London on private business,' thought  he recognized Peace near Westminster  Abbey/and followed him. Tho latter, needless to say, knew he was being shadowed. But ho gave no sign  of' trepidation. " Instead, -he strode  straight across Parliament Street  and into Scotland Yard, and .thence  doubled back through a public-house  passage to  the left.  Nor was this his only visit to .the  London police headquarters. It was  part of his business to get to know  the detectives,'.and lie never missed  an  opportunity of  doiog so. ���  When, for instance, tlio inspectors  and others implicated in the Great  Turf Frauds wore being tried at tho  Old Bailey, he made a personal application "to the Commissioner for a  pass to tho Court, rcoresenting himself as a gentleman of .independent  means who was interested in the  case.  Peace had already been convicted  for the attempted murder of Constable Robinson, and was under sentence of penal servitude for life, when  he made his sensational leap for freedom from the London and Leeds Ex-  prcss.  He was being taken to the latter  town, in custody of a couple of warders, to be tried for the murder of  Air. Byson. Ho knew' that tlio widow of his victim . had been brought  back from America, to identify him,  and must have felt that, metaphorically, the rope was at his throat.  One last chance he had. ami lie  took it. While the train was going  at full speed, he suddenly bounded  from his seat, and threw himself  headlong through the open carriage  window. He alighted on the permanent way. and thero was found  later on, insensible, with a cracked  crown and a broken  leg.  From that moment he seems to  havo given up hope, although ho  fought tramcly for his life to tlie .'lid.  To his warders he was a. sourer, of  endless trouble, for he was as cunning as an ape and as slippery as an  eel.  . Yet ho was an excellent companion, and, when in tho mood Tor it, lie  kept his watchers in the condemned  cell in a continuous chuckle of merriment, wilh his quaint quips and queer  sallies.  Indeed, he jested even in the presence of death: for his last, remark to  Marwnod. uttered with a grim Mnilc  just prior to the bolt being drawn,  was that the halter was "to light."  ���Pearson's Weekly.

Do not subject the bottle to any  sudden change of temperature what-  icver.

As iu Lhe material world, so iu the  menial and  spiritual world  thero are  facts oud phenomena which wo know  to be certainly true,  though wo can-  no*; explain them.    We must recognize  , rational results as such, although wo  cannot     tell     Hie   "whys"   and      the  "wherefores"   nor  the' couses      which  produced these- results.    For instance,  wo aro nearly all- ready to grant the  power of human-telepathy, or the influence of one human mind upon  another    human   mind'    even   at' a  distance.        Silling      in public  meeting  some night you exercise the power of  will upon a person, and soon he will  turn   round      and     look   at you,    although  llutt     person  could  give     no  rational  reason   .why he  turned    and  looked.     Indeed,  so  powerful     sometimes is this    influence" of one human  mind  over  another     that  many   students     of criminology havo come     to  tho  belief  thai some 'murderers   who  wield  the dagger    or aim  the pistol  may  bo  merely  the  helpless  and  pliant  instruments   .of unknown  criminals  who have impelled them to commit their    murderous deeds,  Mesmerism,   liyp'nolisin,   bowitchery,  enchant-'  ment. aro merely long names defining  this' mysterious power, w.hich almost  everywhere  in     the  intellectual  world  is  beginning  to  be  recognized.      and  men  are  asking whether   it  may  not  sometimes dethrone tho supremacy of  tho  Individual  will.  GOSPEL TELEPATHY.  alert, *not when he is cooped up in  some dark, deceitful retreat of a spiritualistic medium or when he is tossing about on his couch at midnight  in uneasy slumber as the result of his  dige-slivc . organs having been overloaded. There is a vision of Lhe spirit and a vision of the flesh. There  is a vision which comes from God  and one'that' is, like ,tho nightmare,  the product of our own brain under  the disturbance of physical or mental  conditions. There must be careful  discrimination lest we accept foolish  fancies and mischevious impulses as  lhe voice of God. That which is  born of the flesh is flesh, and that  which   is  born  of  tho  spirit  is  spirit.  GOD  SPEAKS.  As one human mind has an influence  over  another     human mind,   we also  know   that   there  is "a spiritual  telepathy,  a subtle,  mysterious  influence  which   the  other     world  exerts  upon  our   own.     Visional  messages   as   direct and unmistakable as  that which  cumo to Peter upon the house lop of  Simon's   house      in   Joppa   may  also  come to  us.     We may be  unable    to  explain how tlio divine manifestations  como to. tho human  thind.    God  will  speak to us now if wo  will only lot  him,  as surely as lie spoke in   many  coses  to his servants of old.    If   we  look   to  God  continually   for      guidance,  to us,  too, shall the promise bo  fulfilled.     "Thine   ears shall  hear    a  word  behind  thee saying.  This  is  tho  way; walk ye in it."    The purpose of  this   sermon is   not to analyze      (he  causes of divine    telepathy so    much  as to suggest      ways     in which God  may be speaking  to  his  children     in  these days.  Gospel telepathy, in tlie first place,  comos to God's children as it dtd to  Peter upon Simon's house top, in  broad daylight. By that I do not  mean thai it necessarily conies to us  as ft did lo Polcr at the sixth hour  or when the sun is highest in the  meridian,  but I do mean this:   When  I   speak  very  emphatically  on   this  subject.   ��� What   right   has   any     man  to  apply to     himself  the Ninoty-first  Psalm of David,  as' did a man some  lime ago in one ol our eastern cities?  tie pondcrod  over  theso  versos      day  in  and .day out:    "For ho shall givo  his' angels  cli.argc  over ,thee   to  keep  Iheo   in  all  thy,ways.      They   T-,shall  bear Ih'cc up in their hands, lest thou'  dash' thy foot, against a stone." Then  Iu order to demonstrate his belief in  this  saying,  that  man  jumped    from  the top of a four storey building and  broke nearly every bone in his-body.  Do you   suppose a    vision like    that  came   from    God  or  from  the  devil?  What right    has a,     man to imagine  that ho can get a vision from     God  by using the Bible as a fctisli or an  amulet,  opening   it  at random      and  expecting the first verse his eye falls  upon  to  be God's judgment  in  refer-  once  to some undecided matter, as I  havo known in my own experience of  two or three people being in the habit of doing?    What right has a man  when in  doubt -about 'any matter   to  go to a fortuno teller or to a sorcerer  or  a ^professor of divination ' and  lb regard the voice of a professional  charlatan  as  the voice  of God? * Oil,  no,  my friends.     God's  voice  is    not'  hoard  in  the dark paneled rooms   of  sin.    It is not heard from tho lips of  those.who are leading dishonest lives.  Tt is not heard      amid fanatic vapor-  ings.'    When God speaks to man    ho  speaks as ho did to" Peter in Joppa���  on  the.     house      top at midnoon,  in  broad  daylight.     He speaks 'to   man  in a rational way and ,at a rational  timo.  THE TELEPATIHY  OF SATAN.  There  is  a     vision     sent by  God.  There   iS~ "also   a      Satanic- telepathy. -  Christ,  bone   of our bone  and " flesh  of  our     flesh,   was^  tempted  by , the  visions of sin as well as wo.   In the  fourth chapter of Luke we .read that  .Satan  took    , Jesus      up    to  a  high  mountain and  in vision showed unto  him all  the kingdoms  of the  "world  and said:   "All this power will I givo  thee and the glory of them,' for that  is delivered  unto  me,  and to  whomsoever I will, I will give it.    If thou,  therefore,   will  worship"  mc  all    shall  be thine."      Then'Satan  took  Jesus  to  the   pinnacle  of  the  temple      and  asked him to cast himself down from  thence, lo prove that he was the Son  of God.    But Jesus, instead of obeying the Satanic vision,  turned    unto  tiie .devil  and answered,   "It, is written,  thou  shalt  not tempt the Lord,  thy    God."        If  being so  pure aud  holy as our Lord was approached by  temptation   and  assailed  by  a  temp-  tor   who   based      his  wicked  suggestions    on passages of Scripture, how  careful  should    wo be when a vision  conies to  us, as it came to Peter on  God speaks to man ho speaks to him the house top, to make sure that the  when he is rational, when he is wide [vision, is heaven sent for our guid-  .nwnke    when     his   senses   are   on   the   anre  and  not  a   temptation   from* the  [3*�� Persons of Low Vitality���Local and Constitutional Treatment Necessary���Tho Advantages of  ��� With lho very young and very old,  and with persons of low vitality, the  daiigois of la, grippe ate v^ry groat.

Divine telepathy, as with Peter, is  often manifested with God's children  after some great trial or 'sorrow or  .earthly misfortune has come upon  them. When the casket is p.lacod, in  th'e home * it is apt to bo felt, as  Christ appeared' unto Mary on the  first Easter morn. It is very apt to  be manifested vividly in times of bereavement. '   c*  CALL FOR PRACTICAL WORK.  This gospel call for practical work  is the more impressive and immanent  becauso God's visions aro never 'haphazard;      they are never purposeless  or meaningless    dreams. '   Thoy " always have a very practical interpretation.   When Peter looked off   from  Simon's    house   top ho saw a. great  sheet let down from the heavens, filled with  "all manner of four    footed  beasts of the earth, and wild beasts,  and   creeping     things,   and  fowls     of  tho air."     That vision was a symbol  of  tlio fact  that  Jesus died   to save  the gentile as  well'as  the Jew,    the  despised    barbaiiau as  well   as      the  circumcised.   Hardly  had  the   vision  ended  when Peter heard a loud  rapping at   tho  lower   gale.    "Who     is  llicro ?   Who  is there ?"  was    asked.  "I am a messenger from Cornelius,"  Is   tho  answer.-   "I  am-not a    Jew,  but a gentile, sent by a holy    angel  to     theo.'   Wilt thou como and    tell  him about  Jesus  Christ ?"  The    vision and tho knock" at 'the door were  ono summons. Then it was that Peter  knew   that his  vision  was    divine  and  that    he was called to  a'   duty  which   he   might  have  shrunk      from  if ho      had  not seen the preparatory  vision.      No longer was the offer    of  salvation to,   bo  made to tho    Jews  only;  no  longer  were tlie messengers  of  Christ  to regard the gentiles    as  common or unclean. '   So much     the  vis-ion had taught him, and so Pctor  went     wilh    the men    and preached  Chiist  to tho gentilo centurion,    and  he  found  that' the   gospel  was    the  power "of God unto salvation to tho  gentile as well as to the" Jew.  GOD'S    VISIONS     NOT   HAPHAZARD. ,  God's  visions  are  never haphazard  ingruitics.      When   the good Ananias  ono clay in' the city of Damascus had  tho .command   in a vision that   ��� he  should   placo   tho' hands' of holy  ordination upon the bitterest enemy of  the   Christian   disciples he' at     first  doubted the* .divine authenticity    of  tho vision.   "Ananias   looked up     at  first into the heavens and in surprise  said :  "Lord,   I have heard by many  of this man; how much evil-lie hath  done    to   ',the "sa'inls   at   Jerusalem.  Not him !  Not'Saul !  L cannot    ordain  Saul  of  Tarsus."   ".'But  hardly  iiad  the   good   Ananias5entered    tho  house to��� which-God hackdirectcd him  wlien* thoy     brought, him a staggering,   stumbling blind   man.      It was  Saul !    It was 'the arch enemy Saul!  Then   Ananias  knew  that  his  vision  was divine.      When Simeon had    tho  vision that he should not die before  he had  seen    tho .Lord's  Christ    he  Kni.-w-tho~x.-ii.ion���waa- divine  ~ when-  Mary the  Virgin placed in his arms  the infant. Christ.   So,  O man    and  woman,  tho divine gospel work. You  feel  it.    'You know it.      Why?   Because while I speak there arises    before your mind some one man,  some  one woman, some one child, you can  save.      You are like Voter    standing  upon the house top.   You ai;e listening     to     the messenger of Cornelius  calling you to carry the news of salvation to some wailing soul.  But     there    is    still   another fact  about God's  visions  which  it  would  bo well for   us to dwell upon.      The  divine  telepathy  comes  to   tho     despised man's home as frequently as it  does to tho ruler's palace.   Who was  Peter's host at the house' where    he  had   this     divine vision ?     He.    was  Simon   the   tanner.   He* was in'  all  ���probability  tlie  most  despised     man  in all the coast capital at that lime.  Among the Jews  the dealer in cured  hides "o"f animals was looked upon a*  a social outcast.      Tho harlot,      the  murderer,   the   insurrectionist,     were  moro    respected than he-      The condemned   criminal  might  be   pardoned  of his crimes even though ho was the  thief who  waylaid  the poor man   on  the  road  lo  Jericho,   but   the     tanner's  calling was  never forgiven.  As  men shrank from contact with      the  leper,    whose touch  might communicate     his  loathsome  disease lo     tho  healthy person,  so  lhe*"'Jew    shrank  from' contact with the tanner, whose  presence     in    a   home brought ceremonial contamination.     The door of  hospitality was always slammed shut  in  the  face  of  the  tanner.'  THE DESPISED TANNER.  By the old Jewisii law, if n husband died without any children, his  brother was compelled to marry the  widow. But a widow was not com-  polled lo marry that brother if he  was a < aimer. Not even tho Jewish  law would compel a woman to suffer  such an ignominy. Jf a man married  a woman without telling her he was  a tanner, she could have the matrimonial bonds instantly annulled, as  soon as the deception was found  out. Of course,   there had  to     bo  tanners  among   the  Jews,   as     there  mu'st bo    hangmen. for  this    present  generation; yet, so bitterly -were the  tanners   despised    in  ancient    times  that  by tho eastern  law no     tanner  was    allowed     to  build his tannery  nearer  to   the outskirts of a    town  then  fifty cubits.      It was7  to    this  despised home that the heavenly ' vision came,  opening  tho gate of   tho  Christian   church   to  tho gentilo  nations.      Your home,  O man, O    woman, may be humble; it may be located   in   what tho aristocratic people  call     the   slums;  it may even    havo  been associated wilh the vicious pollution of society; but even there the  voice   from   tho     heavenly  mansions  may bo heard.   "I came  not,"  said  tho compassionate Saviour, "to call  tho rightoous, but sinnors, to repentance. '��� You may bo, a social outcast, as much shunned' as Simon the  tanner,'but in your house, too, you  may hoar a voice saying, "Como  now,. and let us reason together;  though your sins, bo as scarlet, they  shall bo while as snow;" though they  be red liko crimson, they shall bo as  wool." '  -A MESSAGE OF  SALVA'ITON.  One more thought  is suggested by  Peter's experience.      This  -vision     of  tho   sheet   coming   down   from     the  heavens     filled   with   all  manner     of  four     footed '   beasts     and   creeping  tilings and fowls of tho,_air came  to  Peter  when he   was  comparatively  a  young     man.'  It     camo to him not  only as a message of salvation,  but  also a-coinmand, especially for young  men nnd women, to go to work.-.The  Apocalyptic      visions    oT   St.   John  were  entirely  different.    When     John  had     his visions upon  the island    of  Patmos he was a feeble, wornout patriarch of ninety. Most of his friends  were   in  heaven.     He  was  dreaming  for the most part of the life beyond.  His earthly work was practically finished.     But the vision came to retool manhood.     TTo was  then a young  while  h'e was in tho stalwart   prime  man   in   tho   thirties.        My    young-  friends,  note  tho importance  of this  fact.      It means ,that God's   appealing to the young and  tho physically  stalwart ,  lo,   consecrate our energy  and vigor to his service.    Something  wo  may  do  for  him  before  physical  and  mental "decadence  manifests    itself; something wo may do before we  ourselves shall join the great  "silent  majori ty'' beyond.  - CONSUMPTION   CURABLE.
