THE NEWS.  UNION, B.C.  The Week's Commercial  Summary.  The world's visible   supply   qf   wheat  ���������t increased over 8,000,000 bushels the past  It week.  Stocks of wheat at Port Arthur and  Fort William are 1,058,196 bushels, as  against 1,051,689 bushels a week ago,  and 1,044,605 bushels a year ago.  A good trade in red winter wheat and  No. 1 Manitoba hard is reported, but  prices are weaker. Tho former is selling  at 76o outside, ' high freights, and at  SlQMo Fort William.  There is no special variation in the  trade situation at Montreal since a week  ago. Country payments are generally  better, and further improvement, is  looked for in this particular.  , ' ' ��������� The business situation at Toronto is  not perceptibly changed. A fair volume  of trade in , general merchandise is reported, and the tone of the market ie  firm. In groceries there is a slightly  .. higher market for sugars and canned  goods, tomatoes leading the advance in  ' * > the latter class. Orders for dry goods,  furs, etc., are fairly satisfactory.  ,   The visible   supply   of   wheat   in the  ' _ <    '    "United   States   and     Canada   increased  1,000,000 bushels the past week, and the  total is now 22,794,000 bushels   as   com-  . pared with 52,434,000 bushels a year ago.  The amount of wheat' afloat   to Europe  . decreased 240,000 bushels for   the   week,  and the total is - 25,600,000,   as   against  29,120,000, bushels a year ago.'  It is   important   to   observe .that,   as  ,. pointed out the other day in   Power, the  term "horsepower" is misleading.    That  [ journal   says:    "The'  term   horsepower  when applied to u boiler, is always .->xnis-  '    '      leading,   besides   being   a   misnomer to  start with.  A hundred horsepower boiler  ���������will supply steam for a   modern   engine  to develop   200    horsepower.     The' term ���������  should , be   avoided  .when   speaking   of  boilers   whenever   it   can-.' be gracefully  done, and we   notice   with . gratification  than an   English    writer . says ' of water  tube boilers that 'the   approximate   cost  erected in;������96   per   1,000   evaporation.'  <      That is,to say,   you   can   buy and erect  / for ������96 enough boiler to   evaporate 1,000  ''"    -pounds per of steam per hour.    You can  'use the steam of a'pump   at   an expanse  _ 'of 200 pounds per hour,.per  horsepower,  .    making   the    boiler . supply   five   horse-  1  power: or a compound engine   at an expanse of 13   or    14   pounds,1 making the  ' boiler supply   70 horsepower: or.you can  < use it for   boiling   glue   and   generating  no horsepower at all."

The First Orchard Described In AU Its  Beauty and Perfection���������The .Lesson of  Its Creation Before the .Fish and' Birds-  Solomon's Orchards and Gardens.  [Copyright 1897,' by American -Press Association.]  -Dr.    Talma ee  all the doniin-  Washington, Nov. 14.-  finds the divine hand in  ions of the natural world, and this sermon presents religion' in its most radiant attractiveness. The text is Genesis i,  11, "The ffiuit tree yielding fruit after  his kind."  It is Wednesday morning in < paradise.  The birds did not sing their opening  piece nor the fish, take their first swim  until the following' Friday. The solar  and lunar lights did not break through  tbe thick, chaotic fog of the world's  manufacture until Thursday. Before that  there'was light, butit was electric light  or phosphorescent light, not the light of  sun or moon. But the _ botanical and  penological productions came- on Wednesday���������first the flowers and then the  fruits The veil of fog is lifted, and there  stands the orchards Watch tho sudden  maturity ot the fruit In , our time pear  trees must have two years before th'ey  bear fruit, and peaoh trees three years,  and apple trees five years, but here in-,  stantly a complete orchard springs into,  life, all the branches bearing fruit T.h'F  insectile forces, which have been doing  their _worst to destroy the fruits for 6,000  years, had hot yet begun their invasion  The curculio had not yet stung the  plum, nor the caterpillar hurt the apple,  nor had the phylloxera plague, which has  devastated the vineyards of America and  France, assailed the grapes, nor the  borer perforated the wood, nor the aphides ruined the cherry, nor the grub  punctured the nectarine, nor the 'blight  struck the pear.    There   stood   the first  ' orchard, with a perfection' of   rind, and  an exquisitiveness of color   and a   lusci-  ousness of taste, and an-affluence'of pro-  ' duction which it may take   thousands of  years more * o������   study   of . the science of  'fruits to reproduce. " ,  The Frait Diet.  Why was the orchard created two days  before the fish and birds and three days  before the cattle?. Among other things,  to impress the������world with a lesson it is  - too stupid to learn���������that fruit diet is  ' healthier than meat diet, and that the  > former must precede the latter. The reason there are in. the world so many of  the .imbruted and sensual is that they  . have not improved by the mighty, unnoticed fact that the orchards of paradise  preceded the herds and aviaries and fish  ponds. Oh, those fruit bearing trees on.  the bank of the Euphrates, and the  Gihon, and the Hiddekel! I wonder not  that the ancient Romans, ignorant of  our,God, adored Pomona, tlie goddess of  fruits, .and that 'all the sylvan deities  were said to worship her, and that groves  were set apart as her temples. You have  thanked Uod for bread a thousand times.  Have you ever .thanked him for the  fruits which he made tho first course of  food in the menu of (the world's table���������  the acids of those fruits to keep the  world's table from being insipid, and  rtiheir sweets to keep it from being too  60ur?  At   this  -autumnal    season    how   the  orchards breathe and glow., the leaves removed   that   the   crimson    or   pink   or  saffron or the yellow or   brown  may the  - better appear,while the aromatics fill the  air with    invitation   and   reminiscence.  As you   pass - through . the   orchard   on  , these autumnal days and look up through  the arms of the   trees   laden  with   fruit  you hear thumping   on    the ground that  which is fully ripe, and   throwing   your  arms around the trunk you give a shake  that sends down a shower   of   gold   and  fire on all sides of you   Pile up in baskets  and barrels and bins and on   shelves and  tables the divine supply.    But   these orchards have been under the assault of at  least   60     centuries���������the     storm,      the  droughts, the winters, the   insectivoral.  What must iho   first orchard have been?  And yet   it   is   the   explorer's  evidence  that on the site of that   orchard  there is  not an apricot, or an apple,    or  an olive  ���������nothing   but   desert   and   desolation.  There is not enough   to   forage   the  explorer's horse, much less to feed his own  hunger.    In    other   words, that first orchard is a lost   orchard.     How   did   the  proprietor and proprieties of all that in-  tercolumination of   fruitage   let the rich  splendor slip their possession? It was, as  now,   inost   of - the   orchards   are lost���������  namely, by wanting  more    Access   they  had to all tlie fig trees, apricots, walnuts,  almonds,    apples���������bushels   on  bushels���������  and were forbidden   the   use of only one  tree in tho orchard.    Not   satisfied    with  all but one,   they   reached   for that aud  lost the whole orchard.     Go    right down  through   tho business marts of the great  cities and find among   the   weighers and  clerks aud   subordinates   men  who once  commanded the commercial world.  They  had a-whole   orchard   of   successes,   but  thoy wanted   just   one   more thing, one  more house, or one more country seat, or  one more store, or one more   railroad, or  one more million.  For One More Tree.  They clutched for that and lost all  they had gained. For one more tree they  lost a whole orchard There are business men all around us worried nearly  to death. The doctor tells them they  ought to stop. Insomnia or indigestion  or aching at the base of the braiu or ungovernable nerves tell them they ought  to stop. They really have enough for  themselves and their families Talk with  them about their overwork and urge  more prudence and longer rest and they  say: "Yes, you are right After. I have  accomplished one more thing that I have  on my mind I will hand .oyer my business to ray sons and go ' to Europe and  quit the kind of exhausting life 1 " have  been living for the last 30 years." Some  morning you open your paper, and, look-,  ing at the   death    column,    you   find he  suddenly departed this life.   In trying to  win just one more tree he lost the whole  orchard.  Yonder is a man with many styles of  innocent entertainment and amusement.  He walks, he rides, he plays tenpins in  private alleys, he has books on his table,  pictures on his wall and ^occasional outings concerts, lectures, baseball tickets  and the innumerable delights of friendship, but he wants a key to the place of  dis-olute convocation., He wants association with some member of a high family  ris reckless as he is affluent. He wants,  instead of a quiet Sabbath, one of carousal. . He wants the stimulus of strong  drinks. He wants the permissions of a  profligate life. The one membership, the  one bad habit, the one carousal, robs  him of all the possibilities and innocent  enjoyments and noble aspirations of a  lifetime. By one mouthful of forbidden  fruit he loses a whole orchard of fruit  unforbidden.  You see what an expensive thing sin is.  It costs a thousand tiuies. more than it is  worth. As'some of all kinds of quadrupeds and all kinds of winged creatures  passed-, before our progenitor that he  might announce a' name, from eagle to  bat and from lion to mole, so I suppose  there were in paradise specimens of'every  kind of fruit tree. And in that enormous  orchard there was not only enough for  the original family of two, but enough  fruit fell ripe to the ground, and was  never picked up to supply whole towns  and villages if jbhey had existed. But the  infatuated couple turned away from all  these other trees and faced this treej and  the fruit of that they will have though  ' it cost them all paradise.  '      Tho Edenic Story Repeated.  This atory of Eden is rejected by some  as an improbability, if not an impossibility, but nothing on earth is easier for  me to believe than ' the truth of this  Edenic story,' for I have seen the same  thing in this year of our Lord 1897. I  could call them by name, if it were politic and righteous to do so, the men who  have sacrificed a paradise 'on earth and  a paradise in heaven for one sin. Their  houses went Their library went. Their  good' name went Their field of usefulness  went. Their health went. ^'Their immortal soul went. My friends,' there is just  one sin that will turn you out of paradise if you do not quit it. .You, know  what it is,,and God knows, and you had  better drop the hand and arm lifted 'toward ���������that bending btmgh- *bef ore -*yow  pluck your own ruin. When^Adam stood  on tiptoe and took^n his ri^ht hand*<that  one round peach or apricot or apple,  satan reached xiv and pulled down the  round, beautiful world '-'of-* our present  residence; ..Overworked1... artist,, overwrought merchant, ambitious politician;  avaricious speculator,"_.;',better \ take., that  warning from Adam's'orchardV.and"stop  before you put . out for that one thing  more.  But   I turn   from   Adam's orchard to  ���������Solomon's orchard.    With   his own hand  he writes, "I made me .gardens   and orchards.". No it depending on the natural  fall of rain, he irrigated those   orchards.  Pieces of the aqueduct that'watered those  .gardens I have seen, .and ' the   reservoirs  are as   perfect   as   when    thousands    of  years ago the mason's   trowel   smoothed  .tjhe mortar over thoir gray  surfaces.    No  orchard of olden or modern   time,    probably, ever had its thirst so  well   slaked.  The largest of these reservoirs is 583 feet'  long, 307 feet   wide   and    50 feet   deep.  These reservoirs Solomon   refers to. when  he says, "I made me pools of water, to  water therewith the wood    that bringeth  forth trees."    Solomon   used to ride out  to that orchard before breakfast.  It gave  him an appetite and something to  think  about all the day.    Josephus, the historian, represents him as   going out "early  in the morning   from   Jerusalem   to the  famed rocks of   Efcam,    a   fertile region,  delightful with   paradises   and   running  springs.    Thither   the   king, in robes of  white, rode in his chariot,   escorted by a  troop of mounted archers chosen for their  youth and   stature   and   clad in   Tyrian  purple, whose long hair, powdered   with  old dust, sparkled in the sun"  Kelisrioii a LnxMry.  What   mean   Solomon's   orchards and  Solomon's   gardens,    for   thev   seem   to  mingle, the two into one, flowers   under  foot and pomegranates overhead?   To me  they suggest that   religion   is   a luxury.  All along the world has looked   upon religion chiefly as a dire   necessity���������a lifeboat from the shipwreck,   a  ladder from  the conflagration,    a   soft   landing place  after we have been shoved off    the precipice of this planet.    As a consequence so  many have said, "We will await preparation for the   future   until    tho    crash of  the shipwreck, until the  conflagration is  in. lull blaze,   until   we   reach the brink  of the precipice."    No,doubt   religion   is  inexpressibly important for the   last exigency.  Bnt what do the apples   and   the  figs and the melons and   the   pomegranates and   the   citron    and    the   olives of  Solomon's orchard mean? Luxury.   They  mean that our   religion   is   the luscious,  the aromatic,    the   pungent,    tho arborescent, tho cJllorescBiit, "the   foliagcd, the  umbrageous.    They   mean what Edward  Fayson meant wheu he declared, "If my  happiness continues to increase, I cannot  support it much longer." It'means what  Bapa   Padmanji,   a     Hindoo     convert,  meant when he said, "I loner for my bed,  not that I may sleep���������I lie awake   often  and long���������bnt to hold   communion with  "my God." >       ���������  It-means what the old colored man  said when he was accosted by the colporteur, "Uncle Jack, how are you?" "I  is very painful, in my.knee, but, thank  my heavenly Master, I'm cause to be  thankful. My'good Master just gib me  nuf to make me humble." "And do you  enjoy religion as much now, Uncle Jack,  as when you could go fo church and  class meetings?" "Yes, I 'joys him more.  Den I truss to de people, to de meetings,  to de sacrament, and when I hear de  hymn sing and de pray I feels glad. But  all dis ain't like de good Lord in de  heart, God's love here." It means sunrise instead of sundown. It means the  Memnon statue made to sing at the  stroke of the morning light. It means  Christ at the wedding in Cana, It means  the   "time   of   the   singins   of birds is  "well  "oil  come." It means Jeremiah's  watered, garden." It means David's  of gladness." _It means Isaiah's "bride  and bridegroom." It means Luke's bad  boy come home to his father's house.  Worldly joy killed Leo X when he heard  that( Milan was captured. Talva died  of joy when the Boman senate honored  him. Diagora died of joy because his  three sons were crowned at the Olympian  games. Sophocles died of joy over his  literary successes. And religious joy has  been too much for many a Christian and  his soul has sped away on the, wing of  hosannas.  The Reply'of Wellington.  ��������� An old and poor musician played so  well one nieht before his king that the  next morning when the musician awoke  he found his table covered with golden  cups and plates and a princely robe lying  across the back of a chair and richly  caparisioned horses were pawing at the  doorway to take him through the street  in imposing equipage. It was only a  touch of what comes to every man who  makes the Lord his portion, for he has  waiting for him, direct ^froro his king,  robes, banquets, chariots, mansions,  triumphs, and it is only a question of  'time when he shall wear them, arink  them, ride in them, live in them and  celebrate .them.  You think religion is a good thing for  a funeral. Oh, yes! But Solomon's orchard means more.f Religion is a good  thing now when you are in health and  prosperity and the appetite is good for  citrons and apples and apricots* and  pomegranates. Coine in without wasting  any time in talking about them and  take "the luxuries of religion. Happy  yourself, then you can make others  happy. Make just one person happy every  day and in 20 years you will have made  7,300 people happy. I like what Welling-  ' ton said after the battle of Waterloo and  when he was in pursuit of the French  with his advance guard and Colonel  Harvey said to him, "General, you had  better not go any farther, for you may  be shot at by some straggler from the  bushes." And Wellington replied: "Let  them fire away. The battle is won and  my life is*of no value now." My friends,'  we ought never to be reckless, but if,  through the pardoning and rescuing  grace of Christ, you have gained the  victory over sin and death and hell, you  need fear nothing on the earth or under  the earth. Let all the sharpshooters of  perdition blaze away.. You may ride on  in joy triumphant. Religion for .the  .Xnieral. !Oh,'yes! But religion for the  wedding breakfast.- Religion for the  brightest spring morning and autumn's  most gorgeous sunset. Religion for the  day when the stocks are up just as much  as, when, stocks' are down. Religion when  respiration is easy as* well as for the "last  gasp;' when the temperature is normal as  well as when it reaches 104. - It' may be  a bold thing'- to, saj������ but I risk'it, that  if all people, without respect to belief or  character, at death passed into, everlasting happiness, religion for this world is  such a luxury/ that , no man or woman  could afford to do without it. Why was  it that in the parable of the prodigal son  the finger ring was ordered put upon the  returned wanderer's hand before the  shoes were ordered for'his tired feet? Are  not_shoes more important" for our comfort than finger rings? Oh, yes! But it  was to impress the world with the fact  that religion is a luxury as well as a  necessity. "Put a ring on his hand and  shoes on his teet." If in sermonic, or  ���������exhortatory, or social recommendations  of religion we put the chief empasis on  the fact that for our safety we must nave  it when the door of the next world is  opened, poor human nature will take the  risk and say, "I will wait until the  door begins to open." But show them  the radiant truth, that the table of God's  love and pardon is now laid with all the  fruits which the orchards of God's love  and pardon and helpfulness can supply,  and they will come in and sit down with  all the other banqueters, terrestrial and  celestial. Oh, fetch on the citrons and  the apples and the walnuts and the pomegranates of Solomon's orchard.  The Orchard of Pilate.  But having introduced you to Adam's  orchard and carried you awhile through  Solomon's orchard, I want to take a  walk with you through Pilate's orchard  of three trees on a hill 70 feet high, ten  minutes' walk from the gate of Jerusalem.  After I read that our great-grandfather  and great-grandmother had been driven  out of the first orchard, I made up my  mind th'at the Lord would not be defeat  ed in that way. , I said to myself-������that  ' when tliey had been, poisoned by the  fruit of that one tree, somewhere, somehow, there would be provided an antidote for the poison. I said: "Where is  tjio other tree that will'undo the work  of that tree? Where in the other orchard  that will repair the damage received in  the first orchard?" And I read on until  I found tne orchard and its centre tree  as mighty for cure as ,thi|5 one had been  for ruin, and as the one irse in Adam's  orchard'had its branches laden with "red  fruit, of carnage, and the pale fruit of  suffering, and the spotted fruit of decay,  and the bitter fruit of disappointir ent, I  found in Pilate's orchard a tree which,  though stripped of all its - leaves and  struck through by an iron bolt as long  as your arm, nevertheless bore the richest fruit that was ever gathered. Like  the trees of the first orchard, this was  planted, blossomed and bore fruit all in  one day. Paul was impulsive and vehement of nature, - and he laid hold of that  tree with both arms and shook it till the  ground all round looked like an orchard  the morning after an autumnal equinox,  and, careful lest he step on some of the  fruit,' gathered up a basketful of it for  the Galatians, crying out,-"The fruit of  the spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness;-temperance." The other two trees  of Pilate's orchard were loaded, the one  with the hard fruit of obduracy and'the  other with the tender fruit of repentance,  but the center tree���������how will I ever  forget the day I sat on the exact place  where it was planted!���������the center tree  of that orchard yields the antidote for  the poisoned nations.  There is in old England the hollow of  a tree where a king hid, and there is in  New England a tree in' which a document of national importance was kept  inviolate, and there have been trees of  great girth and immense shade ^nd vast  wealth of fruitaare, but no other tree had  sush value of reminiscence or depth of  root or spread of branch or infinitude of  fruitage as the center tree, of Pilate's  orchard. Before I pass this day from  under it I wcu d like to drop on both  knees, and, with both hands * outspread  and uplifted 'toward the heavens, cry  out with, all 'the nations of earth,and,  heaven '.'I believe in God, the Father  Almighty, Maker of - heaven and earth,  and iu Jesus Christ., his^ only Son, our  Lord, who'was conceived by the Holy  Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered  under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead  and' buried. He*'descended info hell. The  ,third day he rose from the dead. He  ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the  right hand of God the Father Almighty.  , From thence he shall come . to jduge the  quick and the dead." ,  St. John's Orchard.  '       *  *" Now, in this discourse of the pomology  of the Bible or God amid the orchards,  havine shown you Adam's orchard ,and  Solomon's orchard and Pilate's   orchard.  I now take you into St. John's orchard,.  ���������*nd I will stop there, for, having seen  that, you will want to'see noth'ing'more.  St. John himself, having seen that orchard," discharged a whole -volley of;  Come' ' Come! Come! and then pronounced the benediction: "The grace of  our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.  Amen." Then the banished evangelist  closes the book, and the Bible is done.  The dear old book opened with Adam's  orchard and closes with St. John's orchard. St. John went into this orchard  through a stone gate, the black basalt of  the isle of Patmos, to which he had  been exiled. That orchard which he saw  was and is in heaven.  One person will err in speaking rof  heaven as all material and another person describes heaven as all figurative  and spiritual, and both are wrong.  Heaven is both material and spiritual,  as we are both material and spiritual.  While much of the Bible account of  heaven is to be taken figuratively and  spiritually, it is plain to me that heayen"  has also a material existence. Christ  said, "I go to prepare a place for you."  Is not a place material? God, who has  done all the world building, the statistics of stars so vast as to be a bewilderment to telescopes, could have somewhere in his astronomy pilled up a tre-*  mendous world to make the Bible  heaven true both as a material splendor  and a spiritual domain.. I do not believe  God put all the flowers, and all the  precious stones, and all the bright  metals, and all the music, and all the  fountains, and all the orchards in this  little world of ours. How much was literal and how much was figurative I can  y  (Morning Edition)  INCLUDING���������"^  V '  The 24=page Saturday Illustrated Edition  not say.     But St* John saw two rows of  t/ees   on   each , side .of   a river, and   it  differed from other   orchards in the fact  that the trees bore 3 2 manner of fruits.   .  The learned   translators of our common "'  Elble say it means 12 different kinds   of  frnit-s in one year. Albert Barnes says it  ���������  means 12 crops of the same kind of fruit  in one year. ��������� Not able to decide which i& -  the more accurate   translation,   I   adqpt  both.    If it means 12 different   kinds'   of  fruit, it declares variety in heavenly joy.  ',  If it mean 12 crops of the same  kind "of  fruit, it declares abundance   in heavenly  joy, and they are both true.   ,  Variety?    Oh,    yes!    Not   an   eternity,  with uothing   but   music; that  oratorio,  would be too protracted. Not an. eternity  of   procession   on   white    horses;     that  would be too long In   the   stirrups.    Not  an eternity of watching   the   river;-that ,  would be too much  of   the   picturesque.  Not an eternity of plucking   fruits  from <  the tree of life; that would be too' much    -  of the heavenly orchard. But all manner  of varieties, and   I   will   tell-   you of at  least 12 of those varieties: Joy of   divine  worship, joy   over   the   victories   of the  Lamb who was   slain,    joy   over the re-,  pentant   sinners,   joy of recounting our ' .  own rescue, joy of embracing old friends,  joy at recognition of patriarchs, apostles,'  ,_  evangelists and martyrs; joy of,   ringing r.  harmonies,   joy   of   reknittlng  .broken*1'  , friendships, joy   at   the   explanation' bf  Providential mysteries,joy at waking the  boulevards of gold,   joy _, at   looking   afc '_ ,  walls green with emerald, and blue with. >  sapphire, and crimson' with   jaspar, and"  aflash with   amethyst,   entered'��������� through   -  swinging gates, their posts, their hinges, <" J  and their  panels, of   richest, pearl:ijoy'���������,*  that there is to be no   subsidence, no re- *,���������_  action, nu terminus to the   felicity. .All ;';  that makes 12 different joys,   12 manner. .-  ot fruits.    So much for variety.'   But   if    ;  you take   the   other   interpretation andV *  say it means 12 crops a year, I am   with.;'.,  you still,   for   that   means   abundance.- ''  That will be the   first place   we ever got-; '  into   where ��������� there -is   enough of every-,  thing, enough of .health, enough of light,.  enough of, supernal   association,', enough  of   love, enough of   knowledge, ���������' enough  of joy. The orchards of this lower world .  put out all their energies'for a' few* days'"  in autumn, and then, having yielded one -  crop,.their banners of foliage are dropped  out of the air and all their beauty is ad-%  journed   until   the   blossoming   of-.'the,  next May time. But 12 crops_ in the heavenly   orchard* during-  that   which ' on  earth we call   a   year means abundance *  perpetually.   " -*  The Heavenly Orchard.   .  While there is enough   of the  pomp'of  the city about heaven for those who' like  the city   best, "* I   thank   God   there . is ;  enough   in   the   Bible   about   ' country y  scenery in heaven to please   those'"of ,iUB  who were born in the country and never'-  got over it.    Now   you may have streets  of gold*in heaven.   Give'me the orchards ;  with 12 manner, of   fruits   and yielding "  their fruit every month,   and   the leaves ���������  of the trees are for '.'the healing vof���������'the^  nations/ and   there   shall   be'' no more _,,  curse, but the throne of God ,and  of the  Lamb shall   be   in   it, and; Irs servants.,  shall serve him,   and   they  shall see his.  face, and his name shall' be in their fore-.  heads, and there shall be no night there,.;  and they need no candle, neither light of^  the sun, for the Lord   God   giveth  them.,  light, and they shall   reign   forover  and.  ever."   But just think of a place so brilliant that the noonday   sun   shall Joe re-^  moved from the mantle   of   the sky be^  cause it is too feeble ataper.  Yet most of"  all am   I impressed with the fact   that I'  am   not   yet   fit for that  place, nor you".  either. By the reconstructing .and sanctifying   grace   of   Christ   we   need'to be ���������  made all over, and let us be   getting our  passports ready   if   we   want-to-get into,-'  that country.    An earthly   passport   is a..'  personal matter, telling our  height,   our-  girth, the color of our hair, our features,���������_  our complexion and our   age. ��������� I   cannot .j  get into   a   foreign   port   on your passport, nor can you get in on mine.    Eacbu  one of us for himself needs  a divine signature, written by the wounded  hand.of-  the Son of God, to get into the heavenly-  orchard, under   the   laden   branches   of  which in God's good time we may   meet  the Adam of the first   orchard,   and   the -  Solomon of the second orchard,   and the  St. John of the last orchard, to sit down,  under the tree of   which   the * church in  the book   of   Canticles   speaks   when it  says: "As   the   apple   tree   among   the  trees of   the   wood,    so   is   my   beloved  among the sons.    I   sat down   under his  shadow with great delight, and his fruit.-"  was sweet to my taste."    And. there   it  may be found   that   to-day' we   learned-  the danger of hankering after   one thing  more, and that religion is a luxury, and  that there is   a   divine   antidote   for all  poisons, and that we had   created   in us  an appetite   for heaven, and*that   it was  a wholesome nnd saving thing for   us to  have discoursed on   the   pomology of the  Bible or God among the orchards. t,  ^  ��������� &'  ' ti  .���������'..'  - *f!l  '" ' ["I  i    i !���������"���������  WI  '"��������� >' Y\\  /   **' ������..������ ������fil  i. --'4i-,tjl  ���������with  -���������' 'i'ii  ,    ,r   il  7 -v^l  5  :-q\  '-������.  - -M41  ';'"fil  W'|  "   " -    "'''^ll  ���������',,'".---������iS������^l  ,.*',-*���������    r^ef  v:  ���������-^1  '4  find  mo-  Fat.lier and iSon.

It turns out that   what   has    hitherto  been regarded-as the   wildest suggestion  contained   in    Rider    Haggard's,    novel  "King Solomon's   Mines"���������namely,   the  existence in Kukunnaland  of   a   mighty  treasure cave, the entrance to which was  protected by a falling   stone���������contains   a  very distinct element-of truth.     The well  known   explorers'. Neale    and   Johnson,  who have   been- exploring .��������� th'e  ruins'of  ���������Ziinbabye, have discovered   the existence  of a great building, {closed   with massive  stone doors never yet opened.  They have-  been obliged to return to obtain supplies  of water and   explosives   and   are   once  more   on   their   way   to... the   supposed'  treasure house. It is hardly probable that  a building, constructed   by   adventurous  miners of thousands   of years ago would  be so protected   unless   it' were a storehouse for some kind of treasure.   Within  the next few   weeks   the   secret  will be  revealed.  ������������������ -��������� 4i\  ii,<3 u   -  Tii:fBIKLY NEWS  ''Cumberland.    B. C.

farmers: institute
Interesting: Papers Read at Courtenay, Followed by an Interesting
Discussion���Good Attendance.
��� Mr. A. Urouharc, occupied ' the chair.
Mr. G. H. Hadwen, of Duncans, read a
short paper on "Cooperation," showing its
aivaatajeV from various stand points, and
oited Cowichan Creamery aa an example of
what could be done in that line.
Mr.J.A__)ialliday cook the subject up and
did not see why the farmers in Comox coula
not unite ia doiaj something in the way of
co-operation.    He   had   received   a" letter
from a firm in Vancouver offering a certain
price for potatoes, but the  cost  of  netting
them there in small lota was high.    He believed 100 tons could be easily shipped from
Comox.    Why not act   together,   even   in
' this matter aud get a steamer to call.    He
believed potatoes could be   lauded in Vancouver for $1.00 per ton freight.
Mr. Ed. Philips was strongly in favor  of
co-operation, aud in his* spirited and humorous style showod the farmers might as well
have profits on the articles they needed as
.  anybody else.    ,
* Mr. Cairns thought co-operation should
.  only begin when people felt they were be-
. ing aesoed.    He did not think the store-
.���. keepers were. making much.    Mr.  J. J. R.
Miller thought tlie farmers should co-operate in the- erection of an evaporating plin^
"for the evaporation of vegetables.    Mr.   J.
N. Muir said there was no question but that
there would be a good market for evaporated
- vegetables for many years to-come.    He  be
lieved the farmers had and could raise  larg^
crops of potatoes, aud thought that machm-
ery such as Mr. Miller had suggested, would
be of great baaetit to the fariaers.    Mr.   S.
J. Pieey thought we raised too many potatoes aud too little wheat.    We had  laud
here that could raise good wheat and yet we
continued to import large quantities of flour.
He did uot think there was a farming  community anywhere of the same extent as Comox that did not have a grist mill.
Mr. J. ,T. Collins, of Salt Spring Island
then gave an address on "Feeding for muk
aud butter". He said he did not expect to
���e* such a fine farming district up here.
This valley he thought was specially adapted for dairying purposes.. He understood
we had some. splendid dairy cows. After
getting such4 stock the next tuiug*-*was to
know how to take care of them. With regard to housiug, there should be more attention giveu to haviugthe stables warm aad
free from draughts. Some people wintered
their ��toclc iu stables with cracks through
wnich ho could'shove his hand. There was
great Ioj* hero.' CoWd required au extr.* a-
uiou of fo il o make up the heat and fat
thin wasted. Then with regard to waterings
sc >ck, c*re should be taken to have the water warmed. Milkiug cows were often
turned <>ur. Co help themselves from an ice
covered w%r,*sring trough; and came inco the
ata'ile shivering. He admitted there wai a
goo A detl o" wor'c couuected with the w.irm
ing of wat'jr for a large number of cows; but
he believed it would pay a tanner with, say
2o oo.vs to have a man whose work should
be to attend those cows.
As to feeding he thought the  farmer sh'd
try to raise what he wanted for hia stock.
Bran was a good food,  but at its present
prioe was almost beyond tho reach of the far
mer.    He was surprised at the amount sf
oat    straw   that     was    wasted    in   this
country.    He was a great believer in oat
straw and chaff.    In the summer time cows
had everything they required for the produc
tion of good butter when they had good pa*^
ture.    He did not think it possible to make
good butter when the cows were pascuring
in the woods, eating moBS and  brush  and
such things as they could find.   While there
was plenty of grass no feeding: was necessary
but as soon as the pasture began to get a lit
tie dry, cows should be fed, even before the
flow of milk began to lessen.    Fer feeding
at this time of the year he knew of nothing
better than ensilage corn.  It oould be grown
here just as well as in other places, and gave
a very large quantity of   food to  the acre.
Mr. A. Urquharfc in leading the discussion
���aid he wonld endorse everything Mr Coll. as
had said. There was a time when we thougut
timothy hay was the best hay we could give
eows; but we were now going in for clover.
He was aiaking about 60 lbs butter per week
and had far more orders than he oould till.
He had fed G or 7 tons of bran and believed
even with the high price it paid him to feed
it.    He believed it was just as easy to make
good batter as bad; in fact   he believed it
was more trouble to make  bad butter than
good.    There was one weed he bad  considerable trouble with in the Bpring time, and
that was the wild onion.    He found it difficult to make good butter while his cows had
a dhance to eat it.
A young farmer in the. audience did not
know about that. He knew his oows had
nothing but wild onions to eat last
spring, and yet the people in Union told him
his butter was better than the creamtry but
ter they got in the stores. This brought the
house down. He afterwards stated there
might have been a little grass and f.rosa-
tnong the wild onions.
Some questions were theu put to Mr. Collins with regard to feeding which  wers sat-

Mr. John J. R. Miller then read a paper
on " Fruit Growing. "    Mr. J. P. Davis did
..not agree with Mr.  Miller  .xx what he said
' about tramping   the  ground  firmly  about
trees when planting.    He thought* that had
the effect of leaving the roots in an unnatural position.    Mr. Miller replied that unless
the  ground was firmly stamped'it left the
tree so that it  was easily  shaken by  the
wind, consequently the roots would be subject to motion, a condition that was uot favorable to the formation of new roots.    '
Mr..McPhee said some of his trees seemed to do well Ihe ri rat year  or  so and that
the bark would become black in spots, retor I
ding tbe growth and in  some  cases killing *
the tree".    He had  lost   several   that way,
He would like to . ear irom Mr. Miller what
caused the disease and if there was any rein
Mr. Miller Baid scientists had not yet
found out what caused the disease, but he
believed there were some varieties that were ,
not subject to it. He had no doubt that be
fore long the cause would be found out and
a remedy provided. In the meantime he
would advise the planting of those varieties
least subject to the disease.
Mr. S. J. Piercy said he had lately visited
Mr. Salmond's orchard and had seen some
trees affected by the disease of which Mr.
McPhee had- spoken. * Mr. "Salmond had
shown him one tree, the bark  of whioh was
.with the exception"of a- very  small portion
. spoiled by the disease.    Mr. S. had  washed
this small strip with a solutiou of lye^one
pound to a tin coal can full  of  water���aud
the batk had begun to grow round the tree
again.    He also saw a tree one side of which,
had leen washed with lye as an  experiment
The side w;ishei,ha.i made a vigorous growth
co that tho trunk had becoaie somewhat enlarged mi one aide.
, Air. Oollms spoke Vary highly oi: the u.**o
of lye. fie i*ui used it With gooder&c-t him
self. I��c haul planted an orchard' of ,750
trees and had only lost about 20 01 them.
Mr. Milliaaa h<id seen fruit trees  on Pu-
*- *
get Sound grotf  011�� swamps   where   there
would sometimes be a foot of water iu the
winter time aud yet thoy did well. Ho did
not think oonditous here were favoraba for
fruitgrowing. *
Votes of thanks were tendered to the spea
kers. Mr. Ccllins In replying said it was a
pleasure to hini to meet the farmdrs of Comox. He said it was not often he nad met
such a good audience at agricultural meetings.  -

BOWSER'S CARPET   LAYING  ECONOMY AND   EXERCISE.  FOR  UNION, B. C.  The Week's Commercial   Summary,  1  Wheat   in    Toronto   is   selling 7 to Sc  higher than a year ago, while in Chicago  the ,price for   cash   wheat    is 21c higher  ' than a year ago.  The shareholders of tho Bank   of Nova  Scotia on   Tuesday    gave   the   directors  ,   authority to increase the capital stock of  ��������� the bank from $1,500,000   to   $2,000,000.  The stocks of wheat at "Fort William  and Port Arthur are 1,562,663 bushels,  an increase of 301.537 bushels for the  week. A vear ago the stocks of wheat  were 2,055.184 bushels  , The sales of farm lands by the Canada  Northwest Land Co. for October realized  $19,000, and for the year to October 31,  $150,000; Last year's sales were only  12,000 acres for $67,000  The business of the fire insurance companies in Canada since the beginning of  the year has been unsatisfactory The  ��������� insurance losses are $4,775,820, as against  $3,747,300' in the corresponding months  of last year. The total loss to property  owners since January 1, this year, is $7,-  090,360, as against $5,485,550 for the ten  months of 1896.  In the Montreal district there has been  - since.last report, a bountiful rainfall  .which will be   of   incalculable benefit to  1 the oountry, not only   in   extinguishing  _. bush fires- and making fall ploughing  possible, but also replenishing wells,  which in some districts were exhausted,  farmers having to .draw water for stock,  ' etc. *.,'(.,  There is practically ' no   change in the  trade situation at Toronto.    The demand  for wools and heavy dry goods' generally  has been   restricted   in   consequence   of  mild   weather,, and   prices   6how   little  change. A fair sorting up trade in fancy  '.goods,   hosiery,    etc.,    has   been   done.  Stocks of'merchandise at country points,  generally. speaking,   are *��������� not large, and  with   seasonable   weather   an increased  movement would be in order.    Wholesale  dealers in groceries, hardware and leather  report   a   satisfactory   trade.    Payments  continue good,, and   prices   in most instances are firm.  >     The old saying that "it is.an   ill wind  that blows no one   good"   is   recalled in  the case of the Dingley   law    The., high  duties which were enacted by this' legislation have resulted in serious   injury to  several important   Canadian   industries,  and   it   gives   some   people   a    certain  ���������amount of satisfaction to know   that the  " excess bf   the   law   is defeating in   part  the object which it was intended   to   accomplish   During the recent races at the  ���������> -Woodbine track the merchant   tailors   of  Toronto   received   in   several   instances  more orders for clothing Irom   American  visitors than they could   fill   within   the  limited time .spent .by the racing men in  '  Toronto.    These   goods,   made from materials imported under the Canadian preferential tariff, were purchased at considerably less than the price of similar goods  in the cities of the United States.    It   is  needless to say that the   visitors   had no  ���������intention of paying Uncle Sam any duty  upon their purchases made ' in   Canada.  Doubtless the samefsort",. of   transactions  are'carried on in   other   Canadian   cities  with equal   success.    Several   years  ago  when the United States Government: imposed an almost   prohibitory    duty upon  clothes, not a few manufacturers of clothing   in   Canada   acquired     considerable  wealth in a short'time'' although possessing but a   limited   local   business.    The  prosperous tailors were.in all   cases conveniently   situated   on   the   channels of  travel between   Canada' and  the United  States. ��������� It   is lkely that the   same thing  will occur while   the   tariffs   of the two  countries remain on their present   basis.  An evasion of the tariff laws of a foreign  country   although not   actively   engaged  in by Canadian '"merohahts, but" merely  countenanced by thein, is not   calculated  to improve business morals in this coun  try.  The border line is"( however, too long  to be   thoroughly   guarded   by   customs  officials,   and   high    duties   imposed   by  either Canada or the United States must  be expected   to be followed by   extensive  smuggling practices.���������Monetary   Times.

He Did Not Fit tlie Job Any Better Than  tlie Carpet JFitteil tlie Iioom���������Both Feet  Punctured hy Tacks���������Witch Hazel and  Salve and a Tlireat.  "Will you be going near a carpet store*  in the morning-'" asked "Mrs. Bowser ihe  other evening as  she looked up from her  paper.  "I dunno.    Why?" replied Mr. Bowser.  "I've had the sitting room carpet ready  to  be  laid'all day,'but  the man  hasn (  come.   You might stop and send one up.".  '  "The carpet is all ready, is it?"  "All ready, and  a good man can  lay it  in a couple.of hours.'"  '  "A good man can lay it in half an hmi",  Mrs. Bowser, and instead of  paying out  $2 he'll be thpt much ahead."  "You���������you don't mean"��������� she stammered.  "I am the good man. I will lay the  carpet. Tho fact is, I was just wondering  if I couldn't do something of that sort this  evening, and I am glad of the job. Sing  merrily, oh, Mrs. Bowser, for 30 minutes  hence the carpet will be laid.r"  '"But why ire yourself all out? Why  not let a man come up? It's his business,  you know, and he can"���������  "That-will do, Mrs. Bowser. I want  the exercise, I want to save tho axf-ensc,  and I want to convince you that I can lay  a carpet as well as a professional.''  "I'll pay for the laying out of my own  pocket if you'll let it go," she said as he  started up stairs to change his clotnes.  '' While I make no charge you can hand  me $2 if you wish," he replied as he went  his way.  She knew what would happen, but she  was helpless to prevent it. In five minutr':  Mr. Bowser reappeared, carrying tacks  and the hammer and feeling in the best o<*  spirits,- and as he entered the sitting room  and lighted the gas he said:  '"Watch the clock, Mrs. Bowser. In 30  minutes from now you can move in the  furnitujfe. I want just about half an hour  of active exercise."  "I���������I thmk'J'll help you."  "And I-rhhilc you won't." .Tust trot  right, off and read your little novel, ana  when the last tack is driven I'll utter a  warwhoop to let you know.''  Mrs. Bowser disappeared, and Mr.' Bowser rubbed his hands, drew a long breath  and made a grab at the big roll of carpet..  He had a clear floor and was soon hammering in the tacks along'one side of the  room. He wanted to'surprise Mrs. Bowser  at tho end of half an hour, but it came  much sooner. She looked in at the end of  seven or eight minutes and at once called  out:  "Mr. Bowser, what on earth are you doing?"  "Doing the best job of carpet laying in  this town," he cheerily answered.  "But you are putting it down without  any lining under it. There's the lining  in that corner.''  "Yes, I sec. Well, that's all right. It's  tho style now to put down carpels without-  lining, and I supposed you wanted to follow it. J ust get right out and don't- bother,  and I'll rip this \ip and fix things."  He ripped, and he fixed, and this time  Mrs. Bowser let him alone for a quarter  of an hour. By that time he had two sides'  finished and was working on the third.  She looked about for a moment and then  said:       ���������- .,-"  "Mr. Bowser, do you know that carpets  are made to'fit rooms?"      ������...  "I've heard so, "he replied as he looked  up.   ' :' .���������-.',���������  "Well, straighten this carpet out and  see how you are coming out. You've got  the ends for the sides. There'll be a foot  short on one end and a foot too much on  the other."  "Never, Mrs. Bowser���������never on the face  of this green earth! ' I ain neither cross  cyednor an idiot, and I say"���������  "But look for yourself,," she interrupted  as she pulled the carpet over...'.-���������'  Jt was true. Mr. Bowser could- nave  claimed that the house had. been turned  around since the. carpet, was taken up oi  that' some carpenter had sneaked in and  shifted the walls, but it didn't occur ������������������ to  him. The only way out of it was to say:  "Mrs. Bowser, if you don't want a strip  of bare floor at one end, according to Fifth  avenue style, there's no need of shouting,  your lungs out. I will thank you to vacate  this room while I whirl the old thing  arqimd.   .  ���������'She''vacated, and there was a. rip, rip,  rip! as he seized the carpet and heaved  away and sent most of the tacks flying to  the ceiling. When he whirled the carpet  about, the house seemed to whirl with it,  and tlie family cat took a skip ior fix.*,  cellar rc.be prepared ior emergencies.  After three or four minutes there came the  whack, whack, whack! of the hammer,  but the noise did not last long. She hoard  Mr. Bowser call out xxxxx! and'!!!!!  and xxxxx ! and as she opened- the door he  wasdaneinir about and holding his thumb.  "What is il. now?"  "Bid any one call you, Mrs. Bowser?"  ie  queried, making a groat effort to appear calm and keep his heels on the (lour.  '    "No, but I heard"'���������  "Then you had better retire. When I  can't lay a. blamed old carpet without your  help. I'll go hang myself!"  "Shan't I do it up in a rag?"  He pointed to the door with arm stretched  out and she disappeared, and as there was  nothing in the room to kick or jump on  he had to suekhi.s thumb and walk around  until'the. pain subsided. After a long ten  minutes had passed he began work again,  and when five minutes 'had passed aud no  fresh calamity had happened Mrs. Bowser  fiegan To breathe easier. She waited ten  minutes' more and then looked in. Mi*.  Bowser had three sides of the carpet down,  but the-re were a dozen creases and wrinkles running through it, and he realized  that' they couldn't be straightened out  with any pulling he could do.  "I was afraid of:  that," she said as she  looked at the wrinkles.  "Afraid of what?"'  "That you would get it squce jawed  around like This. That carpet will have to  come up. You didn't start it right to begin with."  "Oh. I didn't!    Perhaps I don't know  enough to come in when it rains. The  trouble with your infernal old horse blanket is that it never fitted the room in the  first place, but I'll make it fit or break  both legs."  ' Mrs. Bowser returned to her rocker, and  Mr. Bowser braced himself for a new effort. His mind was made up to pull the  wrinkles out of the carpet or pull the  house across, the street, and he kicked off  his slippers, moistened his hands and made  a sudden jump for the largest one to take  it by surprise. He had scattered his tacks  with lavish hand, and as he jumped he  landed on about' 14 of them which were in  position to puncture his tire. The yell he  uttered sent the cat out of the cellar window, the cook out of the back door and  Mrs. Bowser into the room. Mr. Bowser  was lying on his back with both feet hoisted up, and, readily divining what had happened, she rushed over to him and went to  ���������work. He had a dim idea that at least  400 tacks were sticking into tho soles of  his' feet, but he was away off. There were  only six in the right foot and five in the  left, and not one of I hem had gone in over  three inches. Not a word was said while  she was extracting them, not ,a word  while he was hobbling into the other room  to fall upon the sofa. When she had stripped off his socks and applied witch hazel  and followed that with salve', she said:  "I think'you'll feel easier now.    How  did you come to do it?''  "Mrs. Bovser," he began after glaring  nt her in a steely way for a minute, "your  mother lives in Jayvillc?"  "Yes."  "There's atrain for Jayville at 2:30,every afternoon?"  "Yes."  "You   can be   ready tomorrow.    You  didn't want me.to lay that carpet.    When  I insisted, you determined to prevent, even  if you  had  to assassinate me.    You put  those tacks where you knew I was going  to jump, and if I'm not dead with lockjaw  by morning it won't be your fault."  "Why, Mr. Bowser!"  "Don't* why   me,   woman!   Justice is  slow, but sure.    It ,has overtaken you at  last, and my lawyers will be ��������� in .Tayviile  some time within  a week to arrange the  details.

THE TONGUE  DR.  TALMAGE   PLEADS   FOR   HONEST WORDS AND  DEEDS.  He   Speaks  of Agricultural,   Commercial  Mechanical'and    Ecclesiastical   Lies���������A.  i  Plain  Plea   for  Telling;  the  Truth���������The  Masquerade Hull.  [Copyright 1897, by American  Press Association.]  Washington, Oct. 24.���������Dr. Talmage in  this discourse gives a vivid" classification  of the vices ,of speech and pleads for  honesty in all that is said and done. His  text is Acts v^ 1-10, "A certain man  name Ananias, with Sapphira, his wife,  sold a possession," etc.  A well matched pair," alike in ambition  and in falsehood, Ananias and Sapphiral ,  Thoy   wanted   a   reputation   for    great  beneficence, and they sold all their property, '��������� pretending   to ' put, the entire pro-  ,   ceeds in the charity fund while they put  much' of it in their own   pocket.    There  was no necessity that they give all. their  ' property away, but they   wanted  the ro-  ��������� putation of so doing.   Ananias   first lied  about it and dropped down   dead.    Then  . Sapphira lied about it, and   sho .dropped  ������down dead. The two fatalities a warning  to all ages of the   danger   of   sacrificing  the truth. '    ���������  There are thousands of ways of telling  a lie. _ A man's whole life my be a falsehood, and yet never with his lips may he  - falsify once. There'is'a way of uttering  falsehood by look, by manner, as well as  by Up. There are persons who are guilty  of dishonesty of speech and then afterward say -"maybe," calling it a white  lie when no lie is that color.. The whitest  lie ever told was as blalck as perdition.  There are those so   given   to   dishonesty  , of speech that they "do not know when  they are lying. With some it is au acquired sin, and with others it is a  '" natural infirmity. There are those-whom  you will recognize' as born liars. Their  whole life', from- cradle to grave, is filled  np with vice of speech.. Misrepresentation and prevarication are as natural to  them as the, infantile diseases and. are  a sortof moral croup or spiritual, scarlatina.  Then there are those who   in after life  have   opportunities   of   developing   this  . evil, and they go from deception   to   deception and from class to class, until they  ' are regularly graduated liars.    At   times  ' the air in our cities   is filled   with falsehood, and lies cluster   around   the mechanic's hammer, blossom    on   the raer-*  chant's yardstick and   sometimes   sit in  ���������the doors of churches.    They   are - called'  by some fabrication and   they   are called  by some, fiction.    You might   call them  . subterfuge^ or deceit, or romance, or  fable, or misrepresentation, or   delusion, -  , but as I know nothing "to be gained by  covering up a God defying sin with, lexicographer's blanket, I shall call them in  plainest vernacular, lies. They may be  divided' into   agricultural, ' commercial,  - mechanical, social and ecclesiastical.  r  Agricultural l'alsohoods.  First of all,   I   speak    bf   agricultural  falsehoods.    Thcro   is   something in the  presence of' natural   objects   that  has a  tendency to make one   pure.     The   trees  never issue false stock.    Tho wheat fields  are always honest.    Kye   and oats never  move out in tho   night,   not   paying for  the yilace they occupy.  Corn shocks never  TDiike ialse assignment.  Mountain brooks  are   always   current.     The   gold   of  the  wheutileltis   is    never   counterfeit.     Bub  while the tendency of agricultural lifo is  to make one honest,    hone-sty    is not the  characteristic of all who come to the city  markers from the country districts.  You  hear rhe cri*i.king of tho   dishonest;  farm  wagon in almost ovi-ry street of ourgrc.it  cities���������a farm wai_-.ui in    which    there is  not ono   honest   .-poke,    or   one truthful  rivet, from tongue ro    tailboard.     Again  and again has dome.st'o   economy  in our  great cities   foundered    on    the fanner's  firkin.  When "Sew York and Washington  sit down and weep   over   r.heir   sins, let  Westchestor county   and    the    neighborhoods around this capital   sit   down and  weep over theirs.  Tho tendency in all   rural    districts is  to suppose that   sins   and transgressions  cluster in our great   cities,    but   citizens  and merchants long ago learned that it is  not safe to calculate   from   tho character  of the apples on the top of   the   farmer's  barrel what is the character of tho apples  all the way   down   toward    the   bottom.  Many of our citizens and merchants have  learned that it is''safe to   see the   farmer  measure the barrel of   beets.    Milk   cans  are not always   honest.     There are those  who in country life seem   to   think they  have a right, to'overreach'   grain   dealers,  and merchants of all styles.    They think  it is more honorable   to   raise  corn than  to deal in corn.  The producer sometimes  practioally says to   tho   merchant, "You  get your money easily anyhow." Does he  get it easily?    While the farmer  sleeps������������������  and he may go to sleep   conscious of the  faot that   his   corn   and   rye are all tlie  time progressing and' adding to   his   fortune   or   his   livelihood���������the , merchant  tries to sleep, while conscious of the fact  that afc that moment   the   ship   may   be  driving on the rock or a   wave sweeping  over   the   hurricane   deck   spoiling   his  goods, or fche speculators may be plotting  a monetary revolution,    or    the burglars  may be at   that   moment   at his  money  safe, or the fire may have kindled on the  very block where his store stands.  Easy, is it? Let those who get their  living in the quiet farm and barn take  the place of one of our city merchants  and see whether it is so easy. It is hard  enough to have the hands blistered with  outdoor work, but ifc is' harder with  mental anxieties to have the brain consumed. God help the merchants. And  do not let those who live in country life  come to the conclusion that all the dishonesties belong to city life.  not one drop of the sweat of unrequited  toil, and not, one spark of bad temper  flashes" from the bronze bracket, arid  there is not one drop of needlewoman's  heart's blood on fche crimson plush,  while there are other fortunes about  which ii; may be said that on every door  knob and on every figure of the carpet  and on every wall there ' is the mark of  dishonor. What if the hand wrung by  toil and blistered- until the skin comes  off should be placed on the exquisite  wail paper, leaving its mark of blood���������  four fingers and a thumb? Or if in the  night the man .should be aroused from  hi* slumber again and again by his own  conscience, getting himself up on elbow  and crying out into the darkness. "Who  is there?"  There are large fortunes upon which  God's favor comes down, and ' it is just  as honest and just as' Christian to be  affluent as it is to be poor. ,In many a  house there is a blessing on every pictured wall and on every scroll and on  every traoeried window, and the joy that  flashes in the lights and that showers in  the music and that dances in the quick  feefc of-the children pattering through the  hall has in it the favor of God and the  approval of man. And there, are thousands and tens of .thousands of merchants who from the first day they sold  a yard of cloth or firkin of butter,, have  maintained their integrity. They were  born honest, thoy will live honest and  they will die honest. But ,you and. I  know that there are' in commercial life  those who are guilty or great dishonesties  of speech." A merchanfc'says "I am selling these goods at less than cost." Is he  getting for those, goods a price inferior  to that which he paid for them? Then  he has spoken the truth. 'Is he getting  more? Then he lies. A merchant says,  "I paid $25 for this article." Is thafc the  price he paid for ifc? All right., .'But suppose he paid for it $23 instead of $25?  Then he lies.  But there are just as many falsehoods  before the counter as there are behind  the counter. A customer comes in and  asks, "How much is this article?" " lt  is $5." "I can get, that for $4 somewhere else." Can ho get it for $4 somewhere else or did he'say thafc just; ��������� for, the  purposo-of getting ifc'cheap by 'depreciating fche value of tho , goods? If so, he  lied. There are just as many falsehoods  before the counter as there are behind  tho counter..  A man unrolls upon the counter a bale  of handkerchiefs. The customer says,  "Aro these all silk?" "Yes."' "No cotton in them?" ' "No cotton in^them'"  Are those handkerchiefs all silk? Then  tho merchant told the truth. Is there any  cotton in them? Then-he lied. Moreover,  he defrauds himself, for this customer  coming in will after awhile find out that  he has been defrauded, ar.d tho next  time he comes to town and goes shopping-  he will look up at that sign and say.  "No, I won't go there; that's fche place  where I got those handkerchiefs." "First,  the'merchant insulted God, and, secondly,  he   picked his own pocket.     '   _  Who would take' tho reppnsibilifcy of  saying how many falsehoods ' were yesterday told by hardware men, and clothiers, and lumberman, and tobacconists,  and jewelers, and importers, and shippers,  and dealers in furniture, and dealers in  coal, and dealers in groceries? Lies about  buckles, about saddles, about harness,  about shoes, about hats, about coats,  about shovels, about tongs, about forks,  about chairs,, about sofas, about horses,  about lands,, about everything. I arraign  commercial falsehood as one of the crying  sins of our time.  Mechanical "Lies.  Commercial T.ies.  I pass on to consider commercial lies.  There are those who apologize for deviations from the right and for prautical  deception by saying ifc is commercial  custom. In other words, a lie by multiplication becomes a virtue. The^e are  large fortunes gathered in which there is  I pass on to speak of mechanical falsehoods.    Among   the   artisans   are those  upon whom we    are   dependent   for  the  houses in which we   live, the   garments  we wear, the cars in which we ride.   The  vast majority   of   them   are,   so far as I  know them, men who speak    tho   truth,  and they are upright, and many of them  are foremost in great; philanthropies  and  iu churches,    but   that   they   all do not  belong to that class every one knows.  In  times when there   is a great demand for  labor ifc is not   so   easy   for such men to  keep their obligations, becauso fchey may  miscalculate in regard to the   weather or  they may not be able to gefc the help they  anticipated   in    their   enterprise.    I   am  speaking now of those   who   promise   to  do that which they know   thoy   will not  be able to do.    They say they    will come  on   Monday.     They   do   not   come until  Wednesday.    They say they will come on  Wednosday.   They do not come until Saturday.    They say they will have fche   job  done in ten days.     They   dp' not   gefc  it  done before 30.    And   when   a   man becomes irritated and will nofc stand it any  longer then they go   to   work   for him a  day or two and keep the   job along, and  then some   one   else   gets    irritated and  outraged, and they go and work.for thafc  man aud get him pacified, and then thoy  go somewhere else.    I    believe   they call  fchafc "nursing the job."  Ah, my friends, how much dishonor  such men would save their souls if them  would promise to do only that which  thoy know they can do! "Oh," they  say, "it's of no importance. Everybody  expects to be deceived and disappointed."  There is a voice of thunder sounding  among the saws and fche hammers and  the shears, saying, "All liars shall have  their place in the lake that burns with  fire and brimstone."  I pass on to speak of social lies. How  much of society is insincere? You hardly  know what to believe. They ' sen$ their  regards. You do not exactly know  whether it is an expression of the heart  or an external civility. They ask you to  come to their house. You hardly know  whether they really want you to come.  We are all accustomed to take a discount  off what we hear. "Not at home" very  often means too lazy to dress. I was  reading of a lady who said she had told  her fashionable lie. There was a knock  at her door, and she sent down word,  "Not at home." That night her husband  said to her, "Mrs. So-and-so is dead."  "Is it possible!" she said. "Yes, and she  died in great anguish of mind. She  wanted to see you so very much; she  had something very important to disclose  to you in her last hour, and she sent  three times to-day, but found you absent  every time." Then this woman bethought  herself that she had had a bargain wifch  her neighbor that when the long protracted sickness was about to come to *  an end she would appear at her bedside  and take the secret that was to be disclosed. And she had said she was "not  at home."  Social life is   struck through ��������� with insincerity.    ,They' apologize   for   the facfc  that the furnace   is   out; they   have not  had any fire in it all winter.  They apologise for the   fare   on    their   table;- they  never Jive any better.-   They   decry their  most luxuriant entertainment   to   win a  shower of approval from you.  They point;  at a picture on the wall as a work of ono  of the old masters.    They   say   it   is an  heirloom in the family.    It   hung on the  wall of a castle.   A duke gave it to their  grandfather!   People   that will lie about  nothing else will lie about a picture.  On  small income we want' fche   world   to believe we are affluent,   and society to-day  is struck through with cheat   and counterfeit and   sham.    How   few people are  natural!    Frigidity sails around,   iceberg  grinding against iceberg.    You must nofc  laugh outright.    That   is   vulgar.     You  must smile.   You must not dash quickly  across the room.    That'   is vulgar.    You  must glide.    Much   of society is a round  of bows and grins and grimaces and oh's  and ah's and he, he,   he's, and   simper-  ings   and   namby   pambyism,   a   whole  world of   which" is , not worth  one good,  honest; round' of laughter.    From such a  hollow scene the   tortured   guesfe  retires  at the close of the evening, assuring   the  host that he has enjoyed himself. Society  is become so contorted and deformed   in'  this respect that a mountain cabin where  the rustics   gather   at   a   quilting or an  apple paring has in ifc   more   good cheer  than all the frescoed refrigerators   of the  metropolis.  "Ecclesiastical I>ies.  I pass on to speak ot ecclesiastical lies,  those which, are told for the advancement or retarding of a church or sect. It  ,is hardly worfch your whilo to ask an  extreme Calvinisfc what an Arminian  believes. He will tell you that an Arminian believes that man can save himself. An Arminian believes no such  thing, lt is hardly worth your while to  ask an extreme Arminian what a Cal-  vinist believes. He will toll you that a  Calvinist believes that God made some  men just to damn them. A Calvinisfc  believes no such thing. It is hardly  worth your while to ask a Pedo-Baptist  what a Baptist believes. He will tell'yo'u  a Baptist; believes that immersion is  necessary for salvation. A Baptist; does  ,nofc believe any such thing. It is hardly  worth your while to ask a man who very  much hates Presbyterians what a Presbyterian believes." He will tell you fcha't  Presbyterians believe that . there are infants in hell a span long, and that very  phraseology has come down from generation to generation in the Christian  church. There never was a Presbyterian  who believed _,fchafc. "OH," you say, "I  heard some Presbyterian minister 20  years ago say so." You did nofc. There  never was a man who believed that.  There never will be a man who will .believe that. And yet. from boyhood! have  heard that particular slander against a  Christian church going down  the community. '  ' Then,   how   often   ifc is that there are  misrepresentations on the   part   of individual   churches   in     regard   . to   other  churches, especially if a church comes to  great prosperity.     As   long   as a church  is in poverty, and   the    singing   is poor,  and   all   the   surroundings are  decrepit,  an d fche congregation are so   hardly . bestead in life thafc their   pastor  goes with  elbows out,   then   there   will   always be  Christian   people   in    churches who say,  "What a pity; what a pity!" But let the  day of prosperity   come   to   a   Christian  church and let the music be triumphant,  and let there be   vast   assemblages,    and  then there will be even   ministers  of the  gospel critical and denunciatory and full  of   misrepresentation   and   falsification,  giving   the   impression    to   the   outside  world that   they   do   not;   like   the corn  because it is nofc   ground   in   their -mill.  Oh, my friends, let us in all departments  of life stand back fro'u deception.  But   some   one   ���������     s, "The  deception  that I practice is ������������������    .-.mall that it doesn't  amount to anyt!"    g."    Ah,   my friends,  it does   amour..  _o   a   great   deal.    You  say, "When I deceive,    ifc is only about a  case of needles or a box of   buttons   or a  row of pins."    But the article may be so  small you can put it in your vest pocket,  but the sin   is   as   big as the pyramids,  and   the   echo   of   your   dishonor   will  reverberate   through    the   mountains of  eternity.     There   is   no   such thing as a  small sin.  They are all vast and stupendous, because rJiey will   all have to come  under inspection iu the day of judgment.  You may boast yourself   of having made  a fine bargain���������a   sharp    bargain.    You  may carry out   what   the   Bible says in  regard to   that   man   who   went   in   to  make a   purchase   and   depreciated   the  value of the goods, and then after he had  got away boasted of the splendid bargain  he   had   made.    "It   is    naught,    it    is  naught, saith the buyer, but   when he is  gone his   way then he boasteth. ' It.may  seem to the world   a   sharp bargain, but;  the recording angel wrote   down    in the  ponderous    tonics of   eternity,   "Mr. So-  and-so, doing business  on   Pennsylvania  avenue or Broadway or   Chestnut   street  or State street, told one lie."  - brow, and the masquerade ball goes  . bravely on..

May God extirpate from society all the  ecclesiastical lies, and all the   social lies,  and all the   mechanical   lies, and all the  commercial lies, and make every  man to  speak the   truth   of   his   neighbor.    My  friends, let us make our   life   correspond  to what we are.    Let   us    banish all deception from our    behavior.    Let   us remember that the time   comes  when God  will demonstrated   before   ah   assembled  universe just what we   are.    The   secret  will come out.    We   may   hide   it while  we live, but we cannot hide it   when we  die.    To many life is a masquerade tall.  As afc such entertainment gentlemen and  ladies appear in garb of kings or   queens  or mountain bandits or clowns  and then  at the close of the   dance   put   off   their  disguise, so many all through life are in  mask.  The masquerade ball goes on, and  gemmed hand_ clasps gemmed   hand, and  dancing feet   respond   to   danoing   feet,  and gleaming brow   bends   to   gleaming  was again seized with the   dread  disease  and again we were   in   terrible   dread of  losing the child.  When the warm weather  came again   he   rallied,    but   was    very  weak and only   a    shadow  of his former  self.    Despite   all   we   could   do he was  again attacked in the next   spring.    You  can imagine   the   fear    and   dread with  which we   watched   these   recurring attacks, each   one   more    severe   than  the  last, and each one leaving   our   boy in a  worse condition than those that went before. His last attack confined him to bed  for   three' months,    and   his   heart was  dangerously   affected.       His     sufferings  were terrible, and   it   was   pitiful to see  him trying to carry food to   his   mouth.  His nervous system was so shattered thafc  a form of St. Vitus' dance   had   affeoted  him, and his hand and   arm trembled so  that he could   not   feed   or aid himself.  Some friends advised me to  try Dr.  Williams Pink Pills and recommended them  so highly that my  husband   and   myself  decided to try them.     We   gave   them to  Harry for several months   and  when the  spring came watched   anxiously, fearing  a return of the trouble,  but  were thankful and delighted to see no   symptoms of  it, nor has he been troubled for the   past  three years."    "What is the condition of  his health at present?" asked the reporter.    "He ib as   sturdy and  as   healthy a  boy as parents could wish for.  I attribute  his recovery and present   health to nothing but   Pink   Pills,    and   I   cheerfully  recommend them to all."  Rheumatism, sciatica, neuralgia, partial paralysis, locomotor ataxia, nervous  headache, nervous prostration, and diseases depending upon humors in the  blood, suoh as scrofula, chronic erysipelas, etc., all disappear before a fair treatment with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

Away down in the sunny .*-outh, and  ' stretching its lazy length diagonally  actoss the placid bobom of the South  Pacific Ocean, lies one of the fairest possession of the British Empire���������New Zen-  land���������the land of the' Maori and Moa.  Situated within the temperate and subtropical zones, and *\ith a magmficient  climate, it grows all the various fruits,  vegatables, and cereals that can be pro-  in most parts of the' world. Colonize 1  little more than half a century ago by a  few hardy-handed sons of toil, principally  from Scotland, the population has grown  rapidly, and the product of the fruitful  soil no.v requires fleets of steamers to  cany the surplus to the different markets  of ihe globe.  These early pioneers, although enduring hard conditions in the mother land,  had yet by industiy and thrift, gathered  together a littie oi this, world's ge.'u; but  it was to benefit their condition generalK  that they sought tins fiv distant region in  -the south; and one oi the first resolutions  of the settlers, made on deck of the  emigrant ship and in sight of their future  home, was that eight hours should constitute a day's laboi: and to the lasting  honor of the ..cvernirent, be it said, tuat  it gave heed to this desire. The eight  hours dav thus be.-:;mu- .1 standard institution which is maintained to the prcsc:t  day.    Thus early    w.is    ihe\o.t.e    oft'-*"  the   .''.flairs of  was    not till  that    voice  toiler heard arm heeccci. m  the young colony. IIa 1 it  about eleven ye.irs a,-.;o that  rang through rhe land in all its intensity  of power, assert ng its light and demonstrating its ability to rule; and the high  standard of legislation whi..h it has introduced during these few years has astonished the world.  In the  meantime the   colony had been  floundering along in   the throws of financial distress with a Squatters (Land Grab  hers) Government at the  heirn of affairs;  the money'lenders of   Britain reaping the  benefit and the toil worn   producer  paying the piper.    Heie   was   a, country���������  none fairer was   ever the   inheritance of  man���������whose vast territories were in great  measure locked   up in the   hands of the  few, with state owned   railroads   running-  through it, that m many   instances were  not paying for the axel   grease.     In   fact  at this'stage   inthe history of the   colony  the only  thing that   did pay and   had to  pay (to the money lender though) was the  public debt,   which   went up with   leaps  and   bounds,    Ruin    111 the   immediate  future loomed up black and    grim, like a  jagged   reef in   the   ocean  liners path*.  Where   was   the remedy?    The government said   another loan, 10 open   up the  country, will scatter   pros-pent}   over this  smiling  land.    The   people   said no; no  more loans ;*t high   interest to spend   on  unproductive   works.     The    country   is  opened .up   enough ior the    present;   we  'will put the rai ways and the public works  we have on a paying basis first; but to do  so we must get. the people on   the  land  The country was appealed to; the govern  ment   defeated, and so the  now world  famed Labor Government took office; the  personel of which is immaterial.    Suffice  it to say that   the present   Premier,   the  Right Hon. Richard  Seddon, is a miner,  and its  cabinet   minis'ers  and  rank and  file, are recruited from every branch of au  industrial community;   and   when   afier  years of splendid service, a grateful  peo  pie wished to'reward its popular Premier  they   gathered   a   handsome    purse   of  $2,500   and in the midst   of   a   brilliant  assemblage   handed   him   this   token of  esteem.    The noble man nobly   said that  for their esteem he was thankful, but that  ���������as long   as   there   remained a charitable  institition in the country in need of funds  he would never accept their   money; so it  was hand-id aver to a hospital.    1 tremble  for the condition of our Ui.ion hospital if  it expected   much of its   revenue to come  t.i this fashion; and you  kno.v people out  there are not   so fond of   having lawyers  to represent   them.    Well,   how did   the  new  government   proceed ?    A plank in  their platform was   "A Progressive Land  Tax," which works in this way:���������  It makes the man who owns 20,000 acres  pay about four times as much taxes as the  man who holds 10,000 acres, and increasing  in about that proportion; so thafc if a man  held enoiigh land he would be an absolute  pauper.    Afc the same time the lax ..'; >v, 1 ot  affecfc below a certain very liberal acreage.  The declaration of a land p..licy of this  sweeping chaiacter brought forth a terrible  howl of indignation. The leading fk-ancial  authorities aud journals of the old country  condemmed ifc. Statesmen criticised it.  Tho money lenders were all agitated about ifc  arguing that capital would withdraw and  the colony would be hopelessly bankrupt in  three years.  Now what have been the actual result of  a procecdura so adversely criticized? just a  few of 'hem and my article is euaVl: The  large land owners wero compelled to' cut up  their estates and sell thein, thus peopling  the country, and making it as by nature iu-  tended, a great producer. Cheese and butter factories', oreaineries1, etc. have sprung'  up ail over fche land. The railways are paying a percentage above running expfeiices.  Why? Because now they are running thro'  populated districts and there is a continual  haul of wool, frozun mutton, : rain, butter,  produce, merchandise, and passenger trailie,  when beforo, the line ran past the homestead  of the squatter, who only sent a few car  loads of wool and mutton, oucc or twice a  year to market. And although it was pleasant to hear the whistle ot* a locomotive away  in those lowly plains, what an awful price  the people were paying for-that whistle!  Then the business of the towns revived  steamship trade looked up, local industries  were established, and in a. hundred different  ways, directly and indirectly, has tbe colony been benefitted. Then, last but nofc  least fche colony's credit on fche London money market has steadily risen till to-day ifc  stands afc the head of all others.
