Alfred W.    H.  H  Icier,  Sixteenth Baptist Church,  New York,  i ���>  ���V  . ft  hi  i   f  -'6  ;     Man. shall not live bv bread alone   but  ! Toy ovory word that proceedeth out ot ut-  aioutn. of God-Mati hew,   iv., �����.  ��� How shall wc live ? Thc tempter  ���ays, "By bread." Christ replies in the  words of our text. Man lives by God's  , gifts only as Cod is behind them, and  yet the real support is not in thc gilts  but in the giver. Life in its fullest  aense is action from wit. 'n, sustained  with food from without. This is clearly illustrated by thc power of steam  generated within a boiler, but dependent upon water and fuel from without.  God has appointed under all ordinary  circumstances that we should sustain  life by the secondary means of cai thly  food, but placing this as the limit of  God's directions we make our lives  earth, earthy, and hold out little or no  hope to/ the poor and needy of this  world's (foods.  '-,   The word   -/bread",  covers   a   wide  range   of   earthly   supplies and rs^of  primary, interest  to the people of all  nations. \ It places an  emphasis upon  the saying "Self-preservalion    is    the  , first' Jaw pi nature." ' The world says,-  "By these'-things we live."\  '   Moreover, we are not blind to the  necessary anxiety'about such things as  the body's just claim, but rather accept  the fact that; food,'raiment and'shelter  ��re part of God's   economy   of    life.*  'Christ   says,, "Your   hea\enly   Lather  - knoweth that ye have need of all these  ���Jhings."   In the Lord's Prayer we1 arc  < taught to ask, "Give -us tins day our  daily bread," and we"are justified in a  material interpretation of this-human  'request as<much as in a spiritual sense.  But we are wrong if we place so small  a horizon about our lives and give no  ettention to thc words of Christ,   Man  shall not live by bread alone, but by  every word that proceedeth out of the  mouth of God."   We place ourselves by,  the side of thc Phaiisces, of whom rt  ���was spoken, "Woe unto.you, Pharisees;  for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner, of herbs, and pass over judgment  and the love of God; these ye ought to  have done,'and not to leave thc other  undone." . "!'  First.    We should live rn love.      Ir  v   Paul were writing 'to-day    he    would'  aave said, "Though T posses-, abundance   of    all   things,   and   have   not  love, it  profiteth   me  nothing."   Iron  '   In the soil is raised to a more useful 1  sphere, by the growing plant rooted rn  the   ,carth ;   thc plant then taken to-  nourish   the   body   places    thc   iron  still higher and finds its largest usefulness in energy produced in the bloocl-ot,  tnan.   So the ,secd of divine love, placed  by  God in  the human  heart,  can  raise it to a larger and nobler life. We  need the food of culture, knowledge,  affection, solitude,   all   of   which    are  bread to nourish, sustain and develop^  our souls, foreman is not wholly alive  ���when his body is alive;  for the soul  lives by every   word   which   proceeds  from the mouth of God.      <  In a western city by thc.river a >srck  ���girl had been taken out or the street  by a poor woman who kept a dining-  room ior sailors, with a kitchen behind  it, and who made a l.ttle bed for tne  sick child under a stairway. It was  thought the girl would be more comfortable in a hospital, and so she was  taken there. But she missed the kind  heart of the motherly old woman's love  and so went back to die in thc kitchen  .No doubt there was srrrpiisc in 8iea-.cn  -when these two met at God's throne,  and the old woman, who had no earthly church, heard the words - uttered  ���which encircle Livingstone's tomb in  iWcstminstcr Abbey, "Inasmuch as ye  did it unto one of these little ones, ye  did it unto me."  .   Second.   Wc mav also live by every  kind of truth which comes from  God  to make us more alive.   It is ignorance,  narrowness,   bigotry   and   sclfithncss  ���which make us cling to thc letter and  reject  constant   new   revelation,    l.n*  '���mind needs to be nourished with'new  thoughts or it will  return  to  infancy  ,     long before thc body comes to its three  '     score   and   ten.     Truth    revealed   rn  6ciencc, truth revealed in daily experience, truth revealed in common tait.i  in man���these arc some of the words  proceeding out of the mouth of God. |  (For men's souls are only noirnsncd and |  strengthened   in   pioportipn   to   tly-��** j  ���minds'    and   hearts'    working.

The ball, which was attended by  Lord nnd Ludy Cur/.on ond some seven  hundred guests, confirmed Lord Kitchen-  er.'s-rcputation  for- hospitality: 'It wat,  notic7d"~that-. special  arrangement9 had  been made to~bring;,every pos-jiblc room  in the building into requisition, and  to  extend the accommodation .by^-tents and  sharnlanas, so that nobody should be left  out of the occasion.     The guests were  not only entertained on a most generous  scale, but they were struck by the, carefully   planned   arrangements   for  their  -comfort, and by the infinity of personal  pains   taken   to   ensure   their   enjoying  themselves.       Lord   Kitchener   received  everyone himself, and hUi plea��mt handshake of good-fellowship dispelled a host  /if lingering doubts as to the manner of  the man. ,  Dickens Holds His Own.  Does Dickens, it is often-asked, really  hold his own .against thc flood of modera  stories which pours into tho shops  of the bookseller.,? .Messrs. .Chapman & Hall, his old London pub'  lishers,' have been looking into their  many ��� years past these have averaged  considerably over a 'quarter of a. million-  copies annually,' and that so fttr from  there being any decline, the interest nt  Dickens and the consequent sales of hia  works arc increasing, every year. 1-  '-would appear that the difference in the?  individual  sales  of   Dickens's  books  is  nought I'd keep the leg and take the  ���chances. Then, all at once, I though,  of my fiddle.

During the past three'years, however, there  has been a great increase in.the sale or  the "Tale of Two Cities"���so' much so  that it would come fust by many coprcs  for those particular years. No doubt  this/ is mostly due to the success of Mr.  Martin H.aivcy's play, "The Only Way.  While this piece���the stoiy dramat.'/eu���  was being performed in London tliero  was a brisk demand daily for the book.  . Next", to' "Pickwick," tha permanent favorite, indeed bv cir-culatron, is "David.  CopperfieldT" and, indeed, there l-s not  much to choose between the two. From  them there i3 p. rather considerable diop,  to "Oliver Twist" and the "Old Curiosity  Shop," the sales of which have differed  from each o'.hcr only to the extent oi  three hundred copies.  Thiee   other   stories   which jnay ,bo  ranked together are ''Nicholas' jSfickleby,'  "Dombey and Son" and "Bleak House.'  "Little Donit" and "Our Mutual Friend'  come along in  company   with    "Martin  Chuzzlewit,"   and   the   Christmas  books  not far .behind.   "Martin Chu//.le\vit" is  an  illustration  of  the slightness of vicissitude    that ' Dickens's    books have  shown.    When it was published he declared that it was a hundred times tho  best thing he had done.    But t-omchow  tho original sales were quite disappoin..-  ing, and  Dickens was really anxious as  to�� whether thc reading public w.13 not  forsaking him.    Every year it improved  its position, and if that were to be estr-  mated on  its whole sales���and not on  those of the p.ist three years  only���it  would piobablv come next to "Pickwick  and "David Coppcrfleld."    In his recent  article on  Dickens,  -Mr.  Swinburne declared   that   '-GrciL  Expectations"   was  perhaps the'best of his novels.   On sales  it comes fourteenth in thc list, but thc  rcecnt.cheap edition has given it a very  larn-e vo'quo with the public.   Generally  speaking,- thc public demand for indivrd-  ual  no-, els   bv  Dickens  is  in  harmony  with the verdicts which literary opinion  has  pronounced  upon   them.    In  othci  words, the books of his which thc litei-  niy critics have exalted are also  most  bought by the public.  King Rockefeller II.'

It is questionable whether Great  v Britain will allow the Russian  Black' Sea fie=t to pass the Dardanelles, in. fact the ' home editorials  request that Great Britain notify  Russia to that effect.

There are many large, natural  meadows in the.vicinity where considerable hay , is . moweb in the  primitive way,' no mowing machines having as yet* been' brought  into the country. Unfortunately,  large areas of the hay. lauds have  been bought up by speculators, and  are, therefore, of no present-benefit  to the country.

Hie  -was dying of hunger in ihe wilderness,  when, iinding seme s'nnll lound berries,  he tried to eat them, but they were bitter, lie tried roasting them, and the-,o  he finally steeped in some water held in  the hollow of h\-> hand, and found tho  decoction.ns refreshing a a if he had partaken of solid food. Ife hunied back lo  iMoehn, from which he hud been banished,  and, inviting the wise men to partake of  his discovery, they were so well pleased  with it that they made him a  saint.  The story is told, wiites Thonuis I?.  Dawley, jr., in "Success," that collee wa^  inlioJueed into the AVest Indies in 1723,  by Chirac, a French physician, who gave  a Norman gentleman hy the name of De  Olieux, a captain of infantry on his way  to Martinique, a single plant. The sea  loynge was a stormy one, the ves-cl wa��  dihon out of her course, and drinkine  ���water became so scarce that it was distributed in rations. J)e Clieux, with an  affection for'his eoll'ee plant, divided hit-  poition of water with it, and succeeded  in bringing it to 'Mattinique, although  weak,������not iii a hopeless,condition. Them  he planted it in his guidon, piotected it  with a fence of thorns, and watched it  daily until thc end of the year, when ho  'gatheied two pounds of colTee, which he  distiibuted among, the inhabitants of the  i?land to- be planted by them. From  JIai Unique cofTee trees in turn were'sent  to Santo Domingo, Guadaloupe and other  iieiirhbo'iihg islands.  The cofiee tree is an evergreen shrub,  growing, in its natural state,' to a height  of fourteen to eighteen feet. It is usually kept trimmed, however, for convenience in picking the berries, which grow  along the branches close to thp leaves  and resemble in "shape and color ordinary cherries. The tree cannot be grown1  above the frost line, neither can it be  successfully grown in the tropics. The  most successful climate for production is  that found at an altitude .of about four  thousand feet. Any tiling much above  this is in danger of frodt, which is fata!  to the tree; and, when coffee is grown  much below this, it requires artificial  ?hade, which materially increases the-  eost of production and does not produce  as marketable berries. It is owing to  this particular requirementl that coffee  has never been -successfully produca**1  north of thc Mexican boundary.  A Gentle Reminder.

"and it's no commonplace comedy-  drama;   it's   a' real 'picture   of   a   life  crushed out by  this gigantic, heartless  town.

Of course Mr. Frothman's doai  public, the dear American public, would  much rather have their tragedies end  happily; but I'm not wiiting for them,-  but of them. There's a difference, I find.  Moreover, there is only one form of  death artistically possible to any given  tragedy���that fbrm in mine is suicide  with a table knife."  The room had become more silent a-  Atwell spoke.

Sevendy-vive cents. Un*  brellusl"  t^-v  "Keep the change!"���N. Y. "Life."  A Famous Definition.  V V-:  Poisoning Milk. , ; '  Oeairiiness is the only milk preser-^  vative any farmer'need to use, and the  only one he is justified in using.' Preservatives are always a menace to thc  health of the consumer of' dairy or;  other products in which they are used.  And it maters not what name the pre- ���  serving substance goes under, or 'what  form it is in���whether a' liquid, as the  solutions-of formaldehyde or a powder as the preparations of borax. This,  assertion is sufficiently proved by medical records, and circumstances arising  out of the general use of milk preservatives is'compelling the prosecution  of dairymen in all thc cities where milk  is sold.  A sample of what is of too frequent  occurrence in cities is given from a  Seattle, Wash., paper: "Coroner Hoye  yesterday stopped thc funeral of a ten-  ���months-old child on the way to the  cemetery and held an autopsy over the  body at the morgue, which resulted in"'  finding that the child died from drinking milk containing formaldehyde. The  milk was purchased from a local dairy,  which is not yet named by the officers,  ibut arrests will probably be made/ The  proprietors will be charged with murder. The, parents of the child are  Greeks, speaking little English. Dr.  Ludlow/ city health officer, attended  the child, and 'refused to sign a certi-  -ficate that the infant died from natural  causes. He - communicated . his suspicions v to the, coroner, who at' once  took steps to investigate."  Half the evils  of the  use  of , milk '  preservatives is  not    confined to  the '  milk on sale in cities, for At is an un-'  fortunate fact that the use of milk preservatives is becoming so common that  farmers' waves' think nothing of "doping" in hot weather the milk kept (or  family use.   Hence, in addition to the  excesive amount of preservatives taken   t  by the ..family, in bought canned foods,  especially in canned    vegetables    and'  fish^ and in bought meats, the farmers*  family'is given a double dose of em-  ' balming substances. ,        "  '  And the situation is more serious also  because^ of- the fact that on the {arm*  preserving compounds    are carelessly^  used.   In larger manufactories, such as .  'canning    factories,,   preserving   'compounds  are' used " by s rule., and where''  they must be bought by the���hundred-  "weight the careful use of the "prcserVcn-  becomes a matter of economy. But'not' -  so'on'the farm. 'Here the.,quantity ofi ���/  '���milk to be "embalmed" bein,g small, the  'amount of preserver and .its cost are  trifling.    The  person   using  the '',em-  xbalming fluid" then soon comes todis-  .regard waste in|_thc case, and when...*  'pinch of the "powder or a few drops oE  the-dope"  would be    enough  for the  purpose, ten tunes ns much as is  necessary for the purpose is often used. It  is,-in, fact, a wonder of the times that  immediate deaths from the use, of "preservatives"  are not of more  frequent  occurrence under this reign of common:  and careless.use of "preservatives" deprived from such a poisonous substance  as wood alcohol, which is thc base of!  most of thc milk preser- itives on the  market.  All the risks of immediate illness or  permanent injury thi--ugh gradual impairment of the digestive s>stem by the  use of milk preserving compounds!  may be avoided by ihe liberal use oE  hot water, soap suet sunshine on the  dairy utensils and fixtures. For to  kccrMiiilk cli-au is to keep it sweet. A;  ���striking _ example of thc - preserving-  power of cleanliness wos given in roco  when milk from an Illinois dairy was  put on exhibition in sweet'and wholesome condition at tlie Paris, France,  Exposition, twelve clays after the milk  i came from the cow It was merely-  kept clean, and cool No piescrvative  \*as used, and no trick or sleisht oi  hand used in thc case. The milk-was  not even paaicurized. It was merely  the milk of a clean cow, drawn by it  clean man into a clean pail, and stored  in a clean glass jar for shipment And  cleanliness, not preservatives. --IiosUI  characterize thc dairy products of American farmers.���H.
