A STRANGE  DELUSION'.  THE NEWS.  UNION. B.C.  The Week's Commercial Summary.  Failures for the week have been 216  In tbe United States, against 217 last  year.  The stocks of wheat at ' Toronto are  96,805 bushels as compared with 84,705  bushels last week and 181,392 bushels a  year ago.  The net earnings of the Canadian Pa-'  cific for May were $875,509, an increase  of $188,080, and for five months ������2,781,-  066, an increase of $296,133 as compared  with the corresponding period of last  year.  The final official estimates of the Indian wheat; crop indicato an outturn of i  30 per cent, below the average for the  past live years, or a yield of 16S,000,000  bushes, against 2206.*460,000 bushels last  year. Private estimates are that there  may be an export surplus of 4,000,000  bushels.  The visible supply of wheat in the  United States' and Canada decreased  1,879,000 bushels last week, and the  total is now only IS,794,000 bushels as  against 47,860,000 bushels a year ago.  The amount on passage to Europe is 14,-  560,000 bushels, a decrease , of 1,440,000  bushes for the week. A year ago the total  was 26,000,000 bushels: The visible with  amount on passage is only 33,354,000  , bushels, or 40,526,000 less than a year  ago.  ' R. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of  trade in the United States says: There  is no step backward in business, "although the season of midsummer quiet  is near. Improvement continues, gradual  and prudently cautious as - .before, although in many branches evident where  no signs of it appeared a few weeks ago.  Business men of the highest standing in  all parts of the country having gradually  perceived that the tide has begun to rise  are regulating their contracts and investments, and their plans for ' the ���������'-future,  with a confidence quite unknown . to  them a short time ago.  There has been a fair volume of   busl-  ;_ess in wholesale circles at   Toronto   the  past week, and prospects   are   favorable.  The leading staples rule steady in prices.  ' Now that tbe tariff is settled, arid   crops  pretty well assured, business can  be conducted   without these   elements   of   disturbance.      Railroads continue   to do   a  heavy traffic, the earnings being   greatly  in excess of last year. .   This is a feature  that will aid in restoring confidence.  The  stocks of merchandise at   county   points  are limited, and   with   an   increased demand the prospects are good   for   prices.  It IsEntertainedby ah Other���������'he Perfectly  " Sane Man.  A physician of long experience   in the  treatment   of   mental   diseases   recently  told of   the remarkable case  of, a  young j  m.-in   who   was '��������� perfectly   sound   on all '  topics but one. ^  He was- an* inmate of an asylum, the  doctor said, arid had demanded to be  examined,:' asserting that he was sane.  When the physician ��������� reached the 'asylum  he was shown into an handsomely-furnished room, and presented to a tall,  good-looking young fellow, apparently in  robust health.  "Tell me," said the physician, "all  about your case  time of the vestibule trains���������a strong  wind that was blowing struck him and  blew him to the ground. He was wearing a large circular coat, which acted as  a balloon inflated with wind and it was  responsible for his being blown off the  | -train, as .well as for the fact that he  j landed on his feet unhurt. He walked  j some distance to'the nearest station and  telegraphed ahead to his friends that ho  was all right, and would come on by the  next train. If he had been killed every  one would have said 'suicide,' for, the  possibility of a man being blown'from., a  train would seem to be an absurd^-idea."  The young man, speaking with perfect" coherency, and using the best  language, said he was confined at the in  stauoe of a former partner in business,  who had long been secretly robbing bim,  and to'avoid unpleasant discoveries, had  prevailed upon his friends,to place, him  in an asylum.  The doctor made notes, and Avhen the  patient concluded,, told him that he  would do all lie could for him.  "Now," said the doctor, "won't you  walk out into the hall with rne?"  "'I can't," said the young man sorrowfully.  "Why not?" asked the doctor.  "  "Because if   I do I shall   break,"  was  the rather surprising reply.  "What do you mean?," asked the physician.  "Why, don'u yen knovr," said the patient, "that from my tnighs down I'm  made of glass, and that I'm only safe in  this room?"  The doctor left hirn. His disease was  incurable. ,  .,  How Baby Went Homo.  1 -The door of Henig's saloon was pushed  open by a little hand, and a child ran  in. looked eagerly about. "Papal papal  Where" is my papa?" she cried.  'i. A man standing at the counter with a  glass raised-half way'to his lips started  at the sound of the plaintive voice, and  set down the untasted beer.'  do   you   want,    Bessie?"     he  . How, tp Dress a Wound.  Three useful   things to   have   __   the  house as a   provision inrcase of   wounds  are a   spool    of   adhesive   plaster,   some  iodoform   gauze   and a , package of   car-  bola ted absorbent cotton.      Cleanse   and  dry as nearly as may bo the   cut   surface  with a wad of   the' cotton, using moderate pressure   and elevating   the   part   if  060638317 to'check.the flow of blood.'   Do  not apply any water.    Bring the out surface together   as   accurately  as   possible  and letain them there   wftn as few   and  as narrow strips  of   the   plaster as   will  suffice, cutting them of   a good .length.  Then cover the wound with   a dozen   or  so   thicknesses   of   tho iodoform   gauze,  which should extend an inch beyond the  wound.      Over the gauze apply a liberal  layer   of tho   absorbent   cotton, allowing  it to extend beyond the gauze.     The cotton may be kept   in place by a   bandage  of cheesecloth, or   a part   of   a leg of   a  stocking may be drawn over 'it. '   Moderate   pressure,    if   evenly   distributed, is  helpful.

"Baby's-dying!" he repeated mechanically, snatched his hat,- and . taking the  hand of the trembling child, they left  the saloon together. ���������  Down the street they went, the  father  .and child, he with bared . head   and   lip  trembling with emotion, she clinging   to  his hand, and sobbing but h'er*-grief in  a  helpless, hopeless manner.    ' ���������  They stopped at a tenement house and  ascended the stairs, till they reached the  fourth story, where they pausod at room  N������. 8. On a wretched bed, covered by a  ragged quilt, lay the tiny- form of  "baby," so still, so -pure., in the 'midst  of the surrounding dirt and distress.  One glance, and , a loud, agonizing  groan burst from the father's lips. ' "My  God! is our little-darling to leave us?"

They  can be built at half the expense of the  square or rectangular silo, and they  commend themselves in every way-tc  the small farmer and dairyman. They  can be constructed of 2 by 6' scantling,  but they should be beveled, not grooved  TUB SILO UNDER A SHED. -  or tongued, writes a correspondent oi  Rural New Yorker and authority foi  the following:  The reason for beveling  is this:   Ii  put up otherwise, they come in contad  only at the interior edge.   Should there  be a knothole or an irregularity in  the  scantling, or should it by shrinking be-,  * come, slightly   warped there, it would  I be  almost impossible  to make it airtight.   Have  the ��������� scantling  beveled al  the mill.   Tell  the  sawyer what sized  silo you  purpose to build, and he will  i bevel them so that-they will exactly fit.  The additional expense will be less than  that of attempting to stop up the cracks  with rags.    We do not desire to stop all  shrinking and  swelling.   When filled,  we wish the silo to swell some to-aid in  making   tighter joints, and then, when  empty, we want it to shrink so thai  moisture    cannot collect  between  the  staves and rot them out. The coating oi  \ coal tar on the inside, applied after the  hoops  are  drawn  up ,tight/is entirely  sufficient.  Hot tar is very penetrating and will  find  its  way  into  every crevice, thoroughly excluding the  air.   Whether.it  will  last"'louger or  be  more effective  than   when   thinned    with  gasoline  1  oannot state.   There can  now be  purchased  in   the market tar  paint ready  ? for application.   In our experience with  (this the man who was painting  the in-  ." terior was'twice  overcome  by the nox-  I ious gases and was compelled  to  leave  i the silo. Gas tar may be purchased very  oheaply    aud    when    heated   slightly  makes a very efficient paint.  Trinidad asphalt may be purchased foi  about $3 a barrel. This, if used alone,  is so brittle upon becoming hard that il  soon cracks and is worthless. Mixed ir  the proportion of nine parts Trinidad  i asphalt to one part of gas tar, and heated, it makes a valuable application foi  roofs, stable floors or silo.  "What is the best and cheapest way  to cure Hungarian grass and common'  millet for hay? How should the seed  crop be handled?" The foregoing was  recently answered in Rural New Yorker. From Storr's Agricultural college  came the following:  Millet, when grown for hay, should  bo cured as quickly as possible. Owing  to the coarseness of' the stems, tbe hay  will keep well if not dried till the stem's  are brittle. There is a general tendency  among'farmers todryall'hay too much.  One day's thorough drying, followed  by a few hours' airing the second day,  is sufficient for nearly all hay except  clover. If millet is to be grown for  seed, it should be mown when the seeds  are beginning to harden, aud after one  day's drying should be cured in tho  heap for two or three days. After storing on a loft or scaffold for one month  or more the seed will thrash easily and  can be preserved the same as rye or any  other grain.  A New York farmer writing from  Chautauqua county said: Hungarian ancl  millet, when intended for hay, should  be handled very much the same as clover, as they do not cure so quickly as  timothy... They should be cut with a  mowing machine just as they are coming into bloom, in the afternoon, late  enough so they will' not cure much the  same day.- The next day rake with a  steel toothed rake into windrows;, then  cock up nicely, not making the cocks  too large, and cure in the shade. The  hay should only be nicely wilted in the  sun and cured in the cock. No matter  how favorable the weather, one should  not attempt to' cure with sun and air  alone if the best quality is desired.  There is no kind of hay injured so little  if caught out in a rain. Any observing  farmer very well knows how greedily  stock will eat hay that has been cured  in the cock, while the. same hay, if exposed to the burning sun and hot wind  until it is overdried, is not much more  relished by stock than good, bright  straw.  If intended for seed, the millets may  be left to stand until ripened, when  they may be cut with a binder, bound  into small bundles and set up like other  grain until cured, sufficient to keep in  the mow without beating, or they may  be cut with a drop reaper and either  bound by hand or taken up loose with  a barley fork and put into the mow  the same'as hay. The latter method  does not require as much" time to cure  as-when the millet is bound into bundles.

"With August comes failure of pastures and a consequent shrinkage in the  milk, unless soiling crops are at hand  to help out the scanty pasturage. Tne  careful farmer has his crop of fodder  corn or other green stuff ready for this  annual emergency. It is a wasteful  practice to cut such fodder and throw  it .upon the ground for the cattle to pick  Acidity of Soils.  After  several  years'  work   at   the  t Rhode Island station it has been decided  'l that the acidity of upland soils is pr.ob-  I ably due to the removal of crops and the  I use  of certain fertilizers that exhausi  the lime and other basic  ingredients oi  j the  soil, leaving more of the acid than  would be the case were nature  allowed  to take her course. An acid condition ol  the soil therefore results.   Some plants  $ thrive  best under, such condition, but  [ clover, timothy and beets are injured on  ji such soils. A dangerous degree of acid-  I ity appears to exist in upland and nat-  8 -.rally well drained soils and is not con-  I fined  to  muck  and  peat  swamps and  | very wet lauds, as most American   and  | many other writers seem to assume.  The remedy seems to  be  a  generous  jj application  of   air  slaked   lime.    The  ' amount applied varies from 500 to 2,00(  pounds per acre, to be broadcasted  anc  harrowed in.

The  accompanying cut here reproduced from  the New York Tribune shows a handy  rack for feeding soiling crops.

Such a rack can readily be  moved from one place to another.  (  Serviceable Farm Gate.

A Wisconsin stock grower, writing to  the Iowa Homestead, says:  We believe, if you could educate the  breeders  and  feeders how to  feed and  take care of  their hogs, ;there would be  very little  hog cholera, in the country.  We believe hog cholera can be prevented.   We  have  raised hogs for 85 years  and  have had cholera but  once during  that time.    There is too  much corn fed  to pigs. A variety of feed should be fed  Young pigs should  get very little corn  until they are 6  months  old.   If  they  are fed for  health and growth the first  six months of  their  lives with proper  care, the  chances  are  they never will  have  cholera.   Afterward they should  have  the  run  of a good grass pasture  and all the salt and ashes they will eat,  plenty  of  mill  feed, good water, and  above all a good place to sleep in. Their  pens should   be cleaned out every day,  and their  bedding  twice  a week.   If  farmers would  grow  more root  crops  and less corn and feed their hogs a good  supply during  the winter, .there would  be less cholera in the country.  Sere and There.

Three card monte is not a recent invention of the card player by any  means. Back in the early fifties it evidently flourished in the English capital, as the following letter to the Brooklyn Eagle suggests. The communication  comes from' William Day, who had an  experience with card sharpers in London in 1855. After slumbering for mauy  a long year the details come with, a  flavor of , tho old days in their quaint  narration:  One  day   in   the year   1855  I  was  standing at the corner of Great Holland  street  and' Blackfriars'   road, London.  I had not even a single acquaintance in  the city and  very little  money, and as  I was  thinking where  I  could go next  so-it would cost nothing a plainly dressed  man   spoke to  me.    He said:  "Can  you'tell me the way to St. James' park?  I  am   a- stranger in London.   In  fact.  , I was left some money down   in Hitch-  in, Hertfordshire, and as I intend to go  to Australia  I thought I would like  to  see  something  of  London   on my way  ��������� there." I said : "I have nothing 'to do.'  I'll  show  you' the way to   St.   James'  park.''   He appeared quite grateful.    I  "said, "We must go along the new cut,"  certainly one  of, the  poorest streets in"  London, though it appears to be always  full of people.  So we went along, but I  noticed  when  there  was  a  crowd  he  ���������went  ahead  and  pushed   through   the  crowd.   I thought to myself, "You are  not like   the,country   men that' stand  .aside waiting for the crowd   to go by."  When ",we  got  to  the  corner of the  Waterloo Bridge read, he asked   me to  take   a  glass,of bitters.    So we entered-  the  gin  palace,   and   there   we  met a  well dressed young lady.    The stranger  asked her to take a bitter.' She said, she  would prefer gin. ��������� We took ale.' I noticed  she had a well filled satchel;- and when  Ehe opened it to take her  handkerchief  ' out  I' noticed   it was bulged out  with  rolls of old newspapers.    We then wenti  out  and  walked,   to  the  Westminster'  Bridge road.   I said to him :' "Here we  are now.    Go over this bridge, pass the  houses,,of parliament and Westminster  abbey, turn to the  right up Parliament  street  and   there  yon are at the Horse  Guards entrance to-the .park. " Hesaid:-  "I  am much   obliged   to  you for your  trouble.  Take a glass before you leave."  While we were drinking he said: "I  have a friend here, but I have lost him  in this great city.  He is stopping opposite   some   large "theater, but I canuot  think of its name.-   Tell   me, the names  of   the   theaters.    I   may remember its  name. " I mentioned several names, aud  when I mentioned "Victoria" he.cried,  "Why, that is it."   I said: "We passed  it, but it is no  trouble.    I'll   take  you  there.'' c  I took the man around  to the theater.     He   said,    "There   is    the   very  place where  he  is stopping."   Taking  me across the road, he said, "Wait  one  moment.','   Then  he ran up the stairs,  bringing his friend back with him, and  they insisted that I must go up.    So we  all three went upstairs into a room.    I  remember  the room well; half a dozen  chairs and two tables.    The  friend   ordered   ale, and while we  were  sitting  talking an old man, a peddler, came in  the room and, taking some  things   out  of   his   basket,    said,   "Gentlemen,   I  would like  to  sell you a pair of razors  cheap���������only two   bob  and  a  tanner."  The friend cried:   "I never saw such a  place as London is for peddlers.  Gentlemen cannot hold a. private conversation  but they are intruded on by some one to  sell something."    ������������������  The old peddler answered: "I am a  poor man trying'to make an honest living. Now, ��������� gentlemen; I'll tell you  what I will do. We will play for the,  razors. I'll, put up the pair of razors  against your two and six. Here are the  cards.'' He said:'. " Here are three cards,  one court and two plain cards. Now,  can any gentleman show me where the  court card is?" The two friends argued  about it and then decided, after playing  a few times ami passing sovereigns or  yellow boys between them. The peddler  set the cards out once more. Then the  peddler dropped a dirty handkerchief  on the floor, and in trying to find it put  his head below the table. One of the  friends instantly found the court card,  showed it tp mc, turned up the corner  and laid it back in its place, after winking at me. Just then the peddler lifted  his head above the table and said, "Can  any gentleman tell where the cOurt  card is?"  The two friends argued it and at last  appealed to me. Che said it was one  card, and tlie other said it was another.  I said, "Gentlemen, I am not betting,  but I tbinkl know the court card," for  certainly there the court card lay, with  the corner turned up. The friend said,  "I will bet you a sovereign you cannot  pick it up."   I said, "I tell you I do not  A Kf.storie I'eiejrram.  One of the greatest services ever rendered by the telegraph was the transmission from Delhi of the famous telegram of May 11, 1857, which warned  the Punjab of the outbreak of the' Indian mutiny.. The telegrapher, Bren-  dish, who sent tbe message, retired  from the service in receipt of a special  pension equal to his salary. Breudish  and Pilkington were- the two young signalers under Mr. Todd, the superintendent of the Delhi telegraph office. On  Sunday, May 10, at 4 p. m., it was  found that the line from Meerut was  interrupted, and Mr. Todd started to  find ont the break. At the bridge of  boats across the Jumna he was met by  the mutineers the following morning  and murdered. The lads, who were left  alone in the office outside the Kashmir  gate, saw the mutineers pass and continued steadily-telegraphing to Lahore  all the news brought in by peons as to  the doings of the mutineers in the city.  Breridish went out at noon to see what  was going on, but was desired by a  wounded British officer, to go in'and  olose the doors. There for two hours the  two, with the widow and child of Mr.  Todd, remained, and at 2 p. m. Bren-  'dish went to the Umballa instrument  and telegraphed the historic message:  "The sepoys have come in from Meerut  and are burning everything. Mr. .Todd  is dead, and, we hear, several Europeans. -cWe must shut up. ^And now I  am off."  ' The little party then made its way to  the flagstaff tower, where the Europeans  had congregated, and from there saw  the blowing up of the magazine. That  night they fled to Umballa. Before  they left the tower Pilkington went  back to the office to send a jnessage for  an officer. Every step of the way was  taken in danger of instant death, but  the daring mission was accomplished,  for the message is recorded as having  been received., As the last click'died  away the mutineers burst in, and the  signaler was slain. The effect of Bren-  dishVs warning message to the Punjab  was- that the regiments tainted with  .mutiny were disarmed before they knew  MEDICAL OPINIONS.  The Use of Alcohol is Opposed by the Most  Eminent  Physicians.-  The wisest doctors condemn alcohol  mo<r strenuously. The ' following quotations from eminent physicians were  compiled by The Golden Rule:���������  I would not expect much stamina from  alcohol nourished' men.���������Dr. Alexander  Wilder.  If alcohol gives help sometimes to a  man, it is at the expense of blunting his  sensibilities. I am bound to say that for  all honest work alcohol never helps a  human soul.���������Sir Andrew Clarke.  I have.no use for alcohol as a food,  drink,or medicine, and I believe it, is  never used in either large or small quantities without absolute harm to the one  partaking  of   it.���������Dr. A. C. Rembaugh.  We had plenty of alcohol (during the  siege of Paris), but it did not mako us  warm, it did not replace food of any  kind. Let me tell you that nothing will  make you feel the cold more, that nothing will make you feel the dreadful sense  of hunger more, than alcohol'.���������Dr. L.  A. Klein. '      ,  Alcoholism is one of the greatest  causes of the depopulation and degeneration of nations.���������Professor Jaccond.  If all the alcohol in tihe \yorld were  annihilated and the arc of making it  were lost forever, it would be a decided  gain to the medical profession.���������Journal  of Chemistry.  Alcohol has not been found in the  living organism. Alcohol is not a regular  food,  but acts as   a   poison.���������Gustavson.  Tonics give strength; stimulants' call  it forth.���������Dr. Billing.  ' The highest possible perfection of the  nervous system is possible only with  strict total abstinence. Alcohol is a para-  lyzer of nerve functions.���������Dr. E. A.

Carp'enter. .   >  what  Delhi.  had  taken  place < at Meerut aud  bet.  The other  friend said, "I don't  believe the fellow-has a mag." The other one said to me, "You have not got a  sovereign, and I don't think you have  a bob.''  I found it was getting warm, and, as  I sat near the door, I arose and said,  "Gentlemen, I mast be going. " Then  I went down the stairs, treading loud-  A Nasty Encounter.  Sir John Drummond Hay gires, from  his experiences in Marocco, an account  of what the English would call a  "nasty encounter" with a wild boar.  The animal had been brought to bay,  and the dogs had attacked him. When  the "sportsman was' within ten yards,  the creature stood waiting; blood streaming down his sides and his bristles on  end.    Says the writer:  I squatted, took deliberate aim behind ,the right shoulder and pulled the  trigger, expecting to see the beast roll  over, but a fizz, a faint report, and the  sound of a bullet falling among the  bushes tolled mv deathknell. I knew  that the boar wouid be on me in an instant.  - With faint hope, however, that the  second barrel also would not contain a  damp charge, I held my gun firm. On  .came the huge beast, and when he was  within three yards I aimed at his left  shoulder. The explosion was faint, but  he dropped on his head, then rose, and  charging on the muzzle of my gun' sent  it flying over my head.    .  I toppled backward, my legs thrown  straight up in the air, and there I remained, seeing between my legs the  grim monster's head and tusks.  The moment appeared a lifetime, but  my chief thought was, "My epitaph,  'A fo,ol killed by a pig.' "  On he came, while I kept my legs  aloft. It is better, I thought, to have  them ripped than to be wounded in  more vital regions. So when his grisly  snout was on me I brought down my  right leg, armed with a heavy shooting  boot, like a Nasmyth hammer on his  skull.  The boar had only one sound fore leg,  and the blow brought'him to his knees.  This was followed by the left leg, and  I pummeled his head alternately with  each foot as he tried to get at me. .  "If no one comes to the rescue," I  cried out, "I shall be killed."  1'bad scarcely spoken when suddenly  there appeared the brave beater, Ahmed  Ben Ali, his hatchet raised to strike.  "La basl" he called, which was equivalent to " All'right. "  The boar left me and went at him,  and the lithe feilow struck out with his  hatchet, and then jumped aside. A shot  followed from the bushes, and the boar  fell over dead.  I lay prostrate, spattered with blood,  but I had no serious hurt.  .Beer Drinkers.  The effects of beer drinking and violent  exercise, such as bicycle riding, football  and track athletics, on the longevity  were discussed at length at the, annual  meeting of tho medical directors of the  lite insurance companies in New York.  Dr. Gordon W. Russell, of the Aetna;;,in-  troduced the subject of beer drinking in  ci paper which he read on "Selection of  Lives for Insurance." He said that the  consumption of beer was rapidly increasing and that it had a badir influence  on the human system, making persons  addicted to its immoderate use poor riska  for life insurance companies.  Dr.' Rogers,' of   the   New   York   Life,  followed Dr. Russell. He said:���������  "Recently I bad occasion to make  .some study of what happens among persons engaged in the manuacture of beer, '  defined generally as brewers.* My cases  included not only the workingmen en- ���������  gaged in breweries, but also the proprietors of breweries. It is a curious fact  that the mortality among the proprietors  is about as high as among the1 workmen,  showing that they are all given to copious libations.  "Another curious fact is that the data  that I have been able to secure indicate  that TJi'tello's point, emphasized by Dr.  Bernacki, that mortality is very high at  advanced ages, is very well borne out.  The mortality is strikingly low among  brewers in early years. Up to 4.0 or thereabouts brewers seem to be about as good  risks as pretty much anybody else. After  40 the mortality rises very high, and I ,  should say that at 55 to 60 years of age  about three brewers may be expected to  die when one average person die������."���������New  York Sun.  The Cravinjr for Drink.  When a man experiences the craving  for drink, he fiuds it very difficult to,  describe it himself. It is in no sense like  the craving for food, because a hungry  man eats with avidity, but it is no uncommon thing for a drunkard in taking  his first drink in the morning to find  difficulty in keeping it upon his stomach.  The sight of whisky, its odor and everything connected with it is repugnant  and produces a nauseating effect. The  man does not drink it, therefore, because  he likes it,- but because the organ that  controls all the movements of his body  requires alcohol for the purpose of doing  its work, and there is no way it can get-  it except by compelling the introduction1  of alcohol into the stomach. ���������Banner of  Gold.  The Sad Truth.  Mrs. Mann (meeting her former servant)  ���������Ah, Mary, I suppose you are getting  better wages at your new place?  Mary���������No, ma'am. I'm working for  nothing now. I'm married.���������Fliegende  Blatter.  Misunderstood.  To be misunderstood even by those  whom one loves is the cross and bitterness of life. It is the secret of that sad  and melancholy smile on the lips of  great men which so-few understand; it  is the crudest trial reserved for self-devotion; it is what must have offcenest  wrung the heart of the Son of Man;  and if God could suffer, it would be the  wound we should be forever inflicting  upon Him. He also���������He above , all���������is  the most misunderstood, the least comprehended. Alas! alas! Never to tire,  never to grow cold; to be patient, sympathetic, tender, to look for the budding  flower and the opening heart; to hope always like God; to love always���������this is  duty.���������Henry Frederick Amiel.  Indian Temperance Society.  Before the passage of the law prohibiting the salo of liquor to Indians in allot:-  ments Chief Peo of the Umatillas and  others of their reservation in Oregon  petitioned to be resorted to wardship under the Government to save the tribe  from destruction through drink. They  have since formed a temperance society  for the same purpose. Chief Peo of the  Umatillas, Young Chief of the Cayuses  and No Shirt of the Walla Wallas are interested.���������Union Signal.

If large quantities destroy mind and body, small quantities produce physiologically exactly the  same effect. The difference is quantative,  not qualitative. I do not hesitate to  affirm that if from this day not another  drop of spirituous liquor was drunk, the  appetite for it would be quieted after a  few generations, if not wholly destroyed.

There's a heap  of  persons  makes  out  their vouchers ez  hasn't  nigh so much  just claim ez"you. "  Miss Penelope���������she always answered  to that name, regardless of being the  relict of Nathan Briggs and a widow of  good standing���������made no answer at first.  She was occupied in casting on .the heel  of a stocking.  Marrying so late in life, no one in  Canaan could get out of the habit of addressing her as Miss Penelope, So Miss  Penelope she remained, both before and  . ��������� after marriage! She was a faded little  old lady, with soft eyes and a pathetic  droop to the corners, of her mouth.  : These anxious curves were accentuated  now as she dropped her knitting in her  lap and glanced up a little deprecating-  iy.  "I hadn't thought on it," she commenced.  "Well, you  jes' oughter,"   broke in  her companion volubly.    "It's a sin an  a  shame  to  let  money go to waste aa  ��������� b'longs to  you by good rights.    Why,  there's Seth   Sawyer claimed .he bed a  gunshot in the knee, lied a doctor's cer-.  ���������  tificate made out an all thet, but Farmer :  Jones sez he got it pilferin a hen roost.  He was with him when he done it.    Of  course he can't come forward   an  testify,   fur  he'd  be  defamin   of  his  own  character.    An Hannah Pratt���������she thet  wuz  a   Winslow���������draws   her    stipend  . reg'lar, though every one knows Stephen'  Pratt  never  went inter   the  war   tell  'twuz nigh on over an died   in   his bed  at his  allotted   time.    No one can say  thet  of your claim, Penelope.    It's ail  open an aboveboard."  A tender smile wreathed Miss Penelope's lips as she lifted her eyes to  the opposite wall, whe.ro a sword and  knapsack were suspended.  "Yes; Nathan, he fit in three battles  ������������������Shiloh, Manassay and the Wilderness. He wuz took to thehospittle arter  the last one, 'an .thet's the only bit of  information I could scrape u_> Couldn't  make out even where he wuz buried.  Corporal Brent, he brought me them  things back. Found 'em on the battlefield."  A tear stole down the wrinkled cheek.  "'Twuz a grievous  loss, Sister Penelope.    Thet's  the  way I look  at it.  You've give   a  life to your country, an  now it.owes you a recompensation."  Mrs. Brackett leaned back after this  statement and looked at her friend as  if defying her to deny the allegation.  The bereaved widow shifted uneasily  under that steady gaze. The remarkable flow of language confused her.  "It never seemed zactly right," she  - ventured timidly. "Elder Little used  to. go on awful 'gainst insurance.  'Pears to me this is 'bout the same  thing."  Elvira Brackett sniffed contemptuously.  "Sakes alive 1 The quicker you get  thet notion out your head the better.  You don't-hear no sech talk nowadays  in the pulpit. Times hev changed. Besides, you've got to look out fur yourself.  Think of bavin $10 a month, 'sides  tho arrears. Uncle Sam's a good pur-  vider."  Miss Penelope made no rejoinder to  this, but turned the heel of ber stocking meditatively. Perhaps awe of Elvira Brackett restrained her from an open  expression of her views, for Mrs.  Brnrkett's mother was a Peterson. To ;  hino emanated from such a stock was a  lwi:i:d of nobility. One of the Petersons  had borne the title of circuit judge. All  had held offices of respectability.  Mrs. Brackett's sister's husband waa  a prosperous plumber. They lived in  the city, and Elvira paid a 'yearly visit  to her kinsfolk, returning from each  trip in an elevated and instructive  frame of mind. Elvira was a born manager, so now, when she leaned forward  with an air of settled determination,  Mi:-:s Penelope sank back in her chair  with much the same sensation of a fly  in a spider's web.  "It's all very well," Elvira went on.  in an emphatic tone of voice, "to be independent when you're young an spry  an can look out for yourself, but now,  with old age starin you in the face,  it's a slightin of Providence, thet's what  it be.    We wuz talkin it  over  at  tha  sewin circle last Wednesday. Hannah Jewett said she heard you hadn't  been to meetin since last July 'cause  you hadn't a decent pair of shoes to  wear. Now, Miss Penelope, you know  what the Bible says about hidin your  talents in a napkin.' Ef hevin ahusbaurd  thet fit in three battles isn't a talent, I  don't know what is. "  Elvira's arguments were not exactly  logical, but Miss Penelope had not the  courage'to refute them, and so she went  on:  "I tell you now I hev an idea. July  Aun has sent a pass fur _?e to come on  en visit her. I can't get off, seein it's  jes preservin time, but you might as  well take it an go aa far as Washington.  July Ann's sister-in-law keeps a board-  in house there, an she'll take yon in.  I'll write her to meet you, an she'll tell  you how to go 'bout it. Thet's just the  very thing. I'll find some!one goin,;/on  from Northboro to put you in oare of,  an it'll , give you a chance to see -the  capitil, too. It's a powerful pretty city,  eo they say. Now, I guess I've got you  all fixed." And Elvira drew her shawl  around her and prepared to take her,,de-  parture.  "Don't you worry about your things  or nothin. I'll be over an fix 'em up for  you."  Miss Penelope sat motionless for a  long time after her visitor had left her.  The sun crept down behind the horizon  line, and the stars lit their glimmering  tapers one by one. A thread of moonlight stole through the parted curtains  and glittered on the shining andirons.  When she stumbled to her feet at last'  nnd began to prepare ber simple meal,  there was still a dazed expression on  her face.  "Nigh on- to 72 an goin to the capitil! r wonder what Nathan would say?  Elviry seems to ,(think it's my duty.  She sed it wuz a slightin of Providence."  Even now, after Nathan had been  dead 30 years, Miss Penelope found  herself deferring to his opinion,, as she  had always tried to do while living.  Not that she' had ever followed his advice'when given; it was simply a form  of respect by which she strove to hide  the consciousness that Nathan's judgment was not to be relied upon. Indeed,  no one but Miss Penelope had much  opinion of Nathan Briggs. To obtain a  certificate of-*;.respectability in Canaan  it was necessary to be-familiar with  one's family tree. Nathan had come  there a stranger. '"}  He had always been singularly reticent as to his ancestry,\and although  this had been a source ef regret to Miss  Penelope's pride she had been too loyal  to question him.  All of her friends had openly rebelled when, in addition, to her own re-'  spbnsibilityof making both ends meet  on a slender income, she had taken upon herself the care and maintenance of  Nathan Briggs. Miss. Penelope only  smiled contentedly.  "I can't say as Nathan loves tp work  ���������no���������but then, you see, I'm sech a  driver myself . thet I kin do 'nough for  two. An I've heard tell how people  oughter choose their opposites." For  proof of which she would drop her needle and thread and run out to light the  kitchen fire rather than disturb him  from the perusal of the evening paper.  "He isn't a Canaanite; thet's it.  'Tain't fair to weigh him in the same  scales," she would say to herself by  way of excuse, when she was wondering how she would meet tbe grocer's  bill while ber husband satwithjuis feet  on the porch railing, discussing the  financial state of the country.  But when the war broke out, then  Miss. Penelope's heart thrilled with  pride. Nathan's name had been drafted, and he could not very well secure  a. substitute, but she did not know  that. She only realized that she was  giving her all in defense of her country, and, like the Spartan mother, she  rejoiced in the sacrifice. It had been  her one consolation in her bereavement  that Nathan had at last clothed his  name with glory and shown himself to  be a worthy citizen of Canaan.  No.one disabused her mind of this belief in her soldier's bravery by intimating that her Nathan was generally  in the rear guard. On the contrary,  they endeavored to foster her loyalty by  every means possible. Corporal Brent  went over the old battle scenes again  and again, and Miss Penelope's eyes  would flash and turn toward the saber  on the wall, while in imagination she  saw her hero storming the barricade,  climbing the ramparts and facing the  fire of the enemy.  "She's the one thet oughter gone to  the war an left Nathan home to wash  the dishes," Corporal Brent would say,  with a stamp of his wooden leg. "She  got precious little satisfaction out of  him when he wuz alive. I'm goin to  give her all I kin now he's gone."  He was the first to come around and  bid ber godspeed on her journey.  "Ef you haven't got a claim ag'in  the government, no one has, Widder  Briggs. I'd hev seen thet you got your  just dues long afore this, only I knew  your sentiments on the subject. I'm  glad you're takin a diffrunt view of  the matter; I am so."  It was the same with all the neighbors, old and young. They took suoh an  interest in her undertaking and seemed  to look upon it with" such pronounced  approval that Miss Penelope had not  the courage to intimate that her vi������ws  had not undergone any remarkable  change, but that she was being propelled to Washington by the indefatigable  will power of Elvira Brackett. It was  only when she was seated in the train  in .neatly mended apparel, surrounded  by various bundles and packages���������the  donation of appreciative friends���������that  she realized she was now deprived of  that sustaining prop and dependent on  her own resources.  "Nigh on to -72 an startin fur the  capitil!, Whatever'would Nathan say?"  . the dear old lady kept repeating to her-  fielf as she counted her bundles over and  over, sitting bolt upright, the prey to  many fears and misgivings. .       . '  These were somewhat dispelled when  Ihe reached the city aud saw the genial  face of the landlady nodding up at the  car window.  "There I I'knew you tho first minute  I set eyes on you," she said, taking the  little old lady in her arms with' true  southern spontaneity. "July Ann described you all right. Pretty near tired  to death, I suppose? Let noe take the  bundles. We'll get home as soon as we  can, 'and then you shall have a good,  long rest!  ''It's quite a journey to take at your  age, now, isn't it?" she continued when  they were seated at last in the carriage.  "But, then, it's worth the trouble if  you,get your pension, and I have- no  doubt that you;will. "  ��������� Every one she met seemed to be- under the same impression. All the boarders concluded at once that the dear desire of her heart was to secure this  monthly stipend. Some even took it-for  granted that she had been fighting for  it for the last 20 years^ with the result  of having it continually disallowed.  "I don't see how they could have  kept you out of.it so long, auntie," observed a giddy youth as he viewed the  gentle, faded face through his monocle.  "I wish that I could draw a sum like  that without earning it," said her next  neighbor, a department clerk. "I have  to work hard enough for my pittance."  Miss Penelope turned and looked at  him reflectively. Then her mind flew  back to :the saber on the wall, and she  smiled. It was a peaceful smile, and it  straightway opened every heart to her  entrance.  Before the week was past she had ro-  ������ounted all Nathan's battles, offered to  work a "tiger lily" rug for the pretty  young lady who was going to be married in the spring and started a chest  protector for the young man opposite  Who was in consumption.  * Within the month she had taken the  tour of th'e public buildings, had gazed  awestruck on the wonders of the cap-  itol and Washington monument, and,  grandest treat of all, had seen the Soldiers' home, with its corps of feeble  veterans, and Arlington, with its 17,000  headstones and its monument to theun-  known dead. Miss Penelope said noth-,  ing as she strolled slowly along the  ranks of ' 'bivouacked dead, " but her  face wore a look of exaltation when she  left the sacred spot.  Her application had been sent in, but  had not yet been acted upon. At last  the department clerk offered to get his  congressman to intercede for her.  "That'll hurry it along," he said encouragingly. "There's so much red tape  about such matters, they only need a  little pushing."  Miss Penelope thanked him, tut showed no enthusiasm over his proffer of assistance. In fact, she suddenly became  quite serious at the prospect of success.  Clyde Whiting attributed it to uneasiness as to the outcome and thought he  was conferring a great kindness on the  old lady when he interested Congressman Lane in her behalf and took him  down to the pension office to jog the  memory of the dilatory clerks.  "Claim;.9,764���������Certainly, sir."   And  the obsequious employee began to examine the files diligently.   "Ural Are you  quite sure about the name? There must  be some mistake."        ,  "No. 9,764���������Mr. Nathan R; Briggs,"  broke in young Whiting impatiently.  "Yes. Well, you see, his widow has  been drawing his pension for the last  20 years. That is the reason the claim  was not acted upon, I suppose. Matilda, widow of Nathan Jj. What is the  present claimant's given name?"  "Penelope," Clyde answered in a  crestfallen tone. "I heard Mrs. Allen  call her Penelope."  The clerk snapped back the files nonchalantly.  "Iremember the other case. Had not  heard from her husband for years; supposed he was dead; then she got a trace  of him through the war records; put in  her claim, giving satisfactory evidence,  and it was allowed. It isn't anything  new. We have such cases every now  and then. They always get found out  when the pension is due."  "What shall I tell her?" faltered  Clyde when Miss Penelope's claim was  finally set aside and he. and the congressman started to retrace their steps.  "From something Mrs. Allen dropped  one day I judged the husband wasn't all  the old lady cracked him up to be, but  I never thought it would be as bad as  this. I.can't do it���������the shock would kill  her! Won't you help me out a little?"  And he turned to the congressman  pleadingly. "It would not be so bad  coming from a stranger. If you only  had heard her talking about him and  seen her face! Why, I should as soon  take Nathan's sword and stab her to her  heart."  The Hon. Mr. Lane smiled indulgently. The boy was young. When he  had seen as much of the bitter side of  life as himself, he would become hardened.  "Well, send her around to me at 2:80. j  Of course if the man was such a scoundrel, the sooner she knows it the better.''  The Hon. Theophilus Lane thought  he had steeled himself against possible  scenes, but when, at the appointed time,  a light tap came at his door and he  looked up from his papers to meet the  confiding gaze of Miss Penelope's soft  eyes his task suddenly became very disagreeable to him.  "Mr. Whiting, he said you.had something to say to me." And Miss Penelope came, forward, refusing the proffered  chair witb-a gentle wave of her hand.  "No; I haven't got' time to stop. I  s'pose you want me to sign them papers?^ She glanced up at him interrogatively, but, meeting with no response,  went on in'trembling tones:  " You see, everyone seems to think  I'm so dead set after thet pension, an  it wuz all Elviry Brackett's doins. She  sed it wuz my duty, an a-slightin of  Providence, an I,didn't know, but what  she wuz right. All the way in tho cars  I kep' a-thinkin, 'What would i^athan  gay?' an every day it's been the same.  I couldn't seom to decide. You see, Elder Little, he allers preached ag'in in-  |.irance.

Why, I've got 'nough to do to keep  me busy I don't know how long. ".  The Hon. Theophilus Lane bent from  his towering height to take the little  old lady's hand in his, and as he gazed  in the earnest face, transfigured ; by the  light of a firm resolve, he felt a thrill  that not all the applause from one of  his famous speeches had had the power  to waken.  "Do you think that you could rnan-  nge to fill an order for me, Miss Penelope?" he asked; with as 'much anxiety as if' hooked rugs, mittens and  mufflers were desirable commodities in  Washington.  "Well, now, I dunno but what I  might, seein's it's you," Miss Peuelc^o  answered reflectively. "Dear inc, I  s'pose Elviry' Brackett'll be awfully  put out when I cum back athout ^hot-  pension, but ef Nathan thinks it wrong  an I think it wrong, why, it must be  wrong, no mistake." ���������  Miss Penelope went back to Canaan  as innocent of wrongdoing as when she  came, but before her return her story  somehow got circulated round, until it  reached the president's, ear, and he  went so far as to ask for the pleasure  of a private audience.  ���������  It is safe to say that no potentate ever appreciated that honor more fully  than Miss; Penelope, as she made her  courtesy to the chief executive and related a brief account of Nathan's battles.  "Of course it wuz all on his account,"  she would always conclude, when she  was relating the scene to her breathless  auditors, after her return home. "He  seemed tickled to death to hear about  it. Why, I shouldn't be a bit surprised  ef they put up one of them * statoos to  Nathan. There's a hoap of'em stuck  up in the parks all over the city."���������  National Magazine.

"Oh, my side!" and "Oh!" something  or other from Monday morning until  Saturday night. He used to go to see  his family physician about once a day  on an average, and although the doctor  was aware that Coolbath was his best  patient he also knew that there was  really nothing tho matter with him,  and he resolved to cure him of his everlasting complaining. So one day he  said: "Coolbath, what you need is outdoor exercise. I want you to learn to  play golf, and when you can play come  to me and report results, and after you  have taken a few walks around the  links see if you don't feel as if you  have taken a new lease of life."  Now, I have previously told you there  was really nothing the matter with  him, but he felt that he must do as the  doctor ordered, although he grumbled  so much about it that every one wished  him in Jericho. Well, he learned the  game and played morning, noon and I  was going to say night for awhile, and  ji>:;dly I happened around and said:  "By the way, Coolbath, how is it that  now no one ever hears you complaining  about your health.    Are you better?"  "Well," he exclaimed,' "I do certainly feel much better, but I don't  mind telliug you, as you are an old  friend, that the real secret is that when  I am playing golf it keeps me busy  thinking of the game, and I'm busy  thinking after the game is over; eo, you  see, I don't have time to think of my  ills."  / Latest In Shoe Bass.  Even a shoe bag may be up to date  and changes its fashion like everything  else. The old fashioned affairs made out  of ticking and bound with red braid  are now quite obsolete. The New York  Tribune, which illustrates an up to date  shoe bag, says,, "The bags are now  either made of cretonne to match   the  h  "I  sailor's hammock, or denim. j  nnd stronger mesh, trimmed with fringe, <  put  on  frames, hung with  strong and)  ornamental chains, and altogether work- J  ed out in an elaborate and varied assort- I  vnent of itself, specimens of which are ���������'  swaying at this moment in every, corner ,  of the land.  "For real comfort and the '  cool side of the piazza,nothing has been '  evolved better than tho swinging bed of  the   'fo'castle,'  tho real  sailor's ham-j  mock," says a writer who  gave the ii- '  lustrated  description of this hammock  originally to the New York Times.    Ho  says:  If you are summering by the  sea in  some fishing village, or even in a hotel '  on   the  shore, yon will  probably   find'  some sailor about the neighborhood who  will fashion you a hammock of genuine  sail cloth, duly laced, geared and poled  after the  most approved  marine style. ���������  That  will   be  a  treasure, indeed, and  vvhen   swung on  your lawn or veranda  and   piled with  pillows' will prove  m  most inviting lounging place.  For the benefit of those who cannot  get tho real thing, a denim substitute is  suggested. The denim should be of the  heavy quality, the ��������� bottom and end  pieces cut in ono piece 8^4 feet long.  Fourteen inches from either end a tuck  8 inches deep is taken, through which a  wooden rod tho width of tbe hammook  is run to hold the hammock steady. The  side pieces are 9 inches deep and are ���������  hemmed and then overcast with stout  waxed linen thread to the bottom pieces.  The sid.es and ends havo eyelet holea  through which linen tape or cord ii  laced.  If the heavy sewing is difficult, the  Whole thing can bo inexpensively put  into tha hands of tho corner upholsterer. Awning cloth makes up very effectively into these hammocks.  Fruit and Grass Stains.  As the season of fruit and grass stains  is upon us, with various and often troublesome remedies recommended for the  same, it is agreeable to be assured by  Standard Designer that as a general  rule it is a safe plan to try the effect of  pure water upon a stain before using  chemicals. Most fruit stains, for example, can be easily removed by holding  the stained portion over a vessel and  pouring boiling water direotly through  it. This is a much better method than  soaking ' the article, as it prevents the  stain from spreading.  Anothec way is to rub the stain with  alcohol before putting it into water,  and still another is to apply a little salts  of lemon, letting it stand for a few  hours, when it should be washed off in ���������  clear water. This, by the way, is an  excellent recipe for the removal of ink  spots, though in "all cases the stain will  yield more readily to treatment if it bt  taken in hand as soon as it is made.  Grass stains 'may be removed by rubbing with alcohol, and iron rust by immersion in a hot solution of oxalic acid,'  followed by rinsing in ammonia water.  And that is tbe  aure.���������Golfer.  story of Coolbath'*  AN UP TO DATE SHOE BAG.  curtains and upholstery of the room or  are embroidered in Russian cross stitch  on a plain ground, in which case the  bag, with its divisions, is made either  of heavy white linen duck, the pattern  being worked in with red or blue wash  cotton, or of blue denim, the oross  Btitohing being then in white.

Text,   I   Samuel _v,  i 14, "And Samuel said, What meaneth  then this bleating of the sheep in mine  ears and the lowing of the oxen which I  hear?"  The Amalekites thought they had conquered God and'that he would not   carry  , into execution his threats aerainst   them.  , They had murdered tho Israelites in battle and out of battle and left no' outrage  , untried. For 400 years this had been going on, and thoy say, "God   cither   dare  ' riot punish us, or he has forgotten to do  so.'f Let us sec. Samuel, God's prophet,  tells Saul to go down and slay all the  Amalekites,  not'   leaving   one   of   them  'alive; also to destroy all the beasts in  their   possession���������ox.   sheep,   camel and  ,'ass. Hark! I hear the tread of 310,000  men, with monstrous Saul at their head,  ' ablaze with armor, his shield dangling  at his side, holding iu his hand a   spear,  ; at tho waving of which   the   great   host  [marched or halted.     I see smoke curling  .^against the sky:      Now   there is a thick  ! cloud o'f it, and now Tsee the whole"city  ! rising in a chariot of smoke behind  steeds of fjro.   It is Saul that set the city  ^ablaze.    The    Amalekites and   Israelites  '[meet; the   trumpets   of   battle blow peal  > ������'  > on peal, and there is.a death hush.  Then  ��������� there is a signal waved; swoi'ds   cut  and  .'hack; javelins ring on shields; arms   fall  ' from trunks and heads roll into the dust.  , Gash after   gash,   the   frenzied yell, the  gurgling of   throttled throats, the cry of  .'pain, the   laugh   of   revenge,    the curse  j hissed between clinched teeth���������an army's  i death groan.  Stacks of dead on all sides,  I with eyes unshut and mouths   yet' grin-  jning vengeance. Huzza for .theIsraelites!  , i Two   hundred   and   ton   thousand   men  r wave   their   plumes .   and     clap     their  shields, for  the  Lord   God   hath   given  them the victory.  '���������' Saul's Mistake.  \    Yet that   victorious   army  of Israel is  conquered   by   sheep   and . oxen.     God,  through the prophet   Samuel,   told Saul  to slay all the Amalekites and to slay all  the   beasts in their possession,   but Saul,  thinking that he" know more   than   God,  - saves Agag, the Aiiialokitish   king,   and  five drove of   sheep   and   a herd of oxen  that he   cannot bear to kill.    Saul drives  the sheep and oxen down .toward   home.  He 'has no idea that Samuel, the prophet,  ���������will find   out   that   he   has saved these  ' Bhecp   and   oxen   for   himself.    Samuel  comes and asks Saul the   news from   the  battle.    Saul   puts on a solemn face, for  their is no one who can look more solemn  than   your   genuine   hypocrite,    and   he  says, "I have   lulfilled the   command   of  tho Lord."   Samuel listens, and he hears  the'-drove of sheep a little Way off.    Saul  had no idea that the prophet's ear would  be so acute.    Samuel   says   to Saul,   "If  you have done as God told you and-slain  all the Amalekites   and all the beasts  in  their possession, what meaneth the bleating of the sheep in   mine   ears   and the  lowing of the oxen that   I   hear?"    Ah,  one   would   have   though   that   blushes  would have,consumed the cheek of Saul!  -No, no! He says tho army���������not  himself,  of course, but the army���������had   saved   the  sheep and oxen    for   sacrifice,    and then  they thought it -would be   too   bad   anyhow to kill Agag, the Amalekitish kinig.  Samuel takes the   sword   and he slashes  Agag to   pieces,   and   then, he takes the  skirt of his   coat   in    truo-oriental   style.  and rends it in twain,    as   much   as   to  say, "You, Saul, just like that,   Shall be  torn away   from   your   empire and torn  away from your throne." In other words,  let all the nations of the   earth hear  the  6tory that Saul by disobeying   God   won  a flock of sheep, but lost a kingdom.  I learn from this subject that God will  expose hypocrisy. Here Saul pretends he  has fulfilled tbe divine commission by  slaying all tlie beasts belonging to the  Amalekites, and yet at the very moment  he is telling tho-story and practicing the  .delusion the secret comes out,' and the  .���������sheep bleat and the oxen bcllqw.,  A hypocrite is one who pretends to be  what he is not' or to do what he does  not. Saul was only a type of a class. The  modern hypocrite looks awfully solemn,  whines when ho prays and during .his  public devotion shows a great deal of  the whites of his eyes He never laughs,  or, if he does laugh, he seems sorry for  it afterward, as chough.he had committed some great indiscretion. The first  time he gets a, chance he prays 30 minutes in public, and when he exhorts ho  seems to imply that all the race are  sinners, with pne exception, his modesty  forbidding the stating who that one is.  There are a great many churches that  have two or three ecclesiastical Uriah  Heeps.  Tin? Ex'jinsure.  When the fox begins to pray,    look out  for your   chickens.    The   more   genuine  religion a man has the more comfortable  he   will be, but yi.u may know a   religious impostor   by .the fact   that he prides  himself on being uncomfortable.   A man  of that kind is   of   immense   damage to  the cnurch of Christ.  A ship may outride  a hundred storms,    and   yet; a handful of  worms in the planks may, sink  it to the  bottom.    The   church   of   God, is not so  much in danger of the cyclones   of trouble and persecution that come upon it as  of the vermin of hypocrisy that infest it.  Wolves are of no   danger   to   the fold of  God unless they look like sheep.    Arnold  was of more damage   to    the  army than  Cornwallis and his hosts.   Oh, we cannot  deceive God   with    a   church  certificate!  He sees behind   the   curtain   as   well as  before the   curtain; he   sees   everything  inside out.    A man may, through policy,  hide his   real   character,    but   God   will  after awhile tear open tbe whited   sepul-  cher and expose the putrefaction. Sunday  faces cannot save him; long prayers cannot save him; psalm singing and church-  going cannot save him. God will expose  him just as thoroughly as though he  branded upon his forehead the word  "Hypocrite." He may think he has been  successful in the deception, but at the  most uufortunate moment the sheep will  bleat and the oxen will bellow.  One of the cruel bishops of olden time  was going to excommunicate one of the  martyrs, and he began in the usual  form, "In the name of God, amen."  "Stop!" says the martyr. "Don't say  'in the name of God!' " Yet how many  outrages are practiced under the garb of  religion and sanctity. ��������� When, in synods  aud conferences, ministers of   the  gospel  are about to say something "unbrotherly  and unkind about a member, they almost always begin by being tremendously pious, the venom of their assault  corresponding to the heavenly flavor of  the prelude. Standing there, you would  think they were ready to go right up  into'glory, and that nothing kept-them  down but tho weight of their boots and  overcoats, when suddenly tho sheep bleat  ' and the oxen bellow.  Oh, my dear friends,   let   us   cultivate  simplicity of Christian   character!   Jesus  Christ said, "Unless,you become as   tlws  little child, you cannot enter   the    kingdom of God."    We may ,play0 hypocrite  successfully now, but the Lord   God will  after awhile expose  our   true   character.  You must know the incident   mentioned  in the history of Ottacas, who was asked  to kneel in the presence   of   Randolph us  ?i a^d^vh'en  beforo. Jinn   he   refused~to  do it, but after awhile he agree? to come  in private when there was nobody in the  king's_tent,   and   then   he   would kneel  down before him and   worship,'   but, the  .servants.of the king   had   arranged it so  that by 'drawing 1 a   cord tho   tent would  suddenly drop.   Ottacas after awhile came'  .in, and,, supposing he was in   entire privacy,    knelt   before   Randolphus.      The  servants pulled the cord, the tent dropped  and two armies surrounding looked down  on Ottacas kneeling before   Randolphus.  If we are really kneeling   to   the   world  while we profess to be lowly   subjects of  ���������Jesus   'Christ; ��������� the   tent     has     already  dropped, and all the hosts of heaven    are  gazing upon our .hypocrisy.    God's    universe is a   very - public   place., and   you  cannot hide hypocrisy in it.  The Futility of-Sham.  Going out into a world of delusion  and sham protend to be no more than  you really are. If you have' the grace of  Uod, profess it.' Profess -no more than  you have. But I want the world to know  that where there is one hypocrite iu the  church there are 500 outside of it, for  the reason that the field is -larger. There  are men in all circles who will bow before you, and who are obsequious in  your presence and talk flatteringly, but  who all the while > in your conversation  are digging for bait and angling for' im-'  perfections. In your presence they imply  that they are everything friendly, -but  after a while you find, they have the fierceness of'a'' catamount,,'the syhness of a  snake and the spite" of a devil. God will  expose such. The gun they load will  burst in their own hands. The lies they  ���������tell will-break their own teeth, 'and at  the very moment .they "think,, they'have  been siiccessfulin deceiving'youand deceiving the world the sheep will bleat  and the oxen will bellow.  I learn -further from this subject how  natural it is to try to put off our sins'on  other people. Saul was charged with  disobeying God. The man says it was not  he; he did riot save the. sheep; the army  did it���������trying, to throw it off on the  shoulders of-'other people. Human nature  is the same in ali'" ages.', Adam, confronted with his sin, said, "The woman  tempted me, and I did eat." And the  woman' charged it upon the serpent, and  if the serpent ' could,, have spoken it  would have charged it'upon the devil. I  suppose that the real state of the case  was that Eve was eating the apple and  that Adam saw it .and begged and coaxed  until he got a piece of it. I suppose that  Adam was just' as much, to blame as Eve  was. You cannot throw off the responsibility of any sin upon the shoulders of  other people.  Here is a young man who says: "I  know I am doing wrong, but I have not  had any chance. I had a father who despised God and a mother who was a disr  ciple of godless fashion., I am not to  blame for my sins. It", is my "bringing  up." Ah, no, that young man has been  put in the world long enough to see what,  is right, and to see what is wrong, and  in the..great day of eternity he cannot  throw his sins upon his father or mother,  but will have to stand for himself and  answer before God. You have had a conscience, you have had a Bible and-the  influence of the Holy Spirit. Stand for  yourself or fall for yourself.  Here is a business man. He says, 'I  know I don't do exactly right in trade,  but all the dry goods men do it ana all  the hardware men do this, and I am not  responsible." You. cannot throw off your  sin upon the shoulders of,.'other merchants. God will hold you responsible  for what you do, and them responsible  for what they do. I want to quote one  passage of Scripture for you-���������I think it  is in Proverbs���������"If thou be wise, thou  shalt be wise for thyself, but if thou  scornest thou alone shalt bear it."  ���������An Old Sin.  I learn further from this subject what  God meant by extermination. Saul was  told to slay all the Amalekites and the  beasts in their' possession.. He saves  Agag, the Amalekite king, and some of  the sheep and oxen. God chastises him  for it. God likes nothing done by halves.  God Will not stay in the soul that is half  his and half the devil's. There may be  :'mpre-;sins in our soul than there were  Amalekites. We must kill them. Woe  unto.us if we spare Agag! Here is a  Christian. He says: "I will drive out all  the Amalekites of sin from my heart.  Here is jealousy���������down goes that Amalekite. Here is backbiting���������down goes  that Amalekite." And what slaughter  he makes among our sins, striking right  and left. Who is that out yonder lifting  up his head? It is Agag. It is worldli-  ness. It is an old sin he cannot bear to  strike down. It is a darling transgression  he cannot   afford to   sacriflcs.    Oh,    my  THE FERN COLD MINING AND MILLING COMPANY,  LIMITED LIABILITY.  HEAD   OFFICE:   VANCOUVER,   B.C.

I  believe thorn.    They  would not lie about  it.  Why cannot we all have this consecration?    Why   slay some of the sins in our  soul and leave, others to bleat and bellow  for   our   exposure   and     condemnation?  Christ will not   stay   in   the same-house'  with Agag.    You must give up   Agag or"  srive up Christ.    Jesus says, "All of that  heart or none."    Saul slew the poorest of  the sheep   and   the   meanest of the oxen  and kept some of-the   finest and the fat-.  test, and <there are   Christians   who have  slain the. most unpopular   of their trans-s  givs������ions and, saved those which,are most-i  respeot_bii-\ It-will not do.

TH E SWEET GIRL GRADUATES*  Here is a Christian who has been largely  prospered.    He has.not given to   God the  proportion that is   due   in   charities and  benevolences.    God comes to   the reckoning and-he   takes it all away from    you.  How often   it   has   been that   Christian  men    have had a large estate,-, and   it, is  gone.    The   Lord    God   came   into    the  counting   room   and   saia: "I   have allowed you to have   all   this   property for  10, 15 or 20 years and you have not done  justice to my poor   children.  ..'When   the  beggar   called   upon   you,   you hounded  him off your   steps; when   my   suffering  children appealed   to   you   for help, you  had no mercy. I only asked for so much,  or so much, but   you   did   hot give it to  me and now I will take it all.'"  ' Sunday Observance.  God   asks   of   us   one-seventh of   our  time in tho^way of Sabbath.  Do you suppose we can   get   an   hour   of that time  successfully away from its   true   object?  No. no, God has   demanded   one-seventh  of your time.    If  you    take one  hour of  'that time that is to   be devoted  to God's  service, and instead of keeping his . Sabbath use it for the purpose of writing up  your accounts or making worldly   gains/  God will get that hour from you in some  unexpected   way.    God   says   to   Jonah,  "You go'to Nineveh."    He says: "No, I  won't.   I'll go to   Tarshish."    He   starts  for Tarshish.     The sea raves, the   winds  blow   and   the   ship ��������� rocks.     Come,   yej  whales, and take this passenger for   Tar  shish!    No man   ever   gets   to Tarshish  whom God tells to go to   Nineveh.    The  sea would not carry him; it is God's sea.  The winds would not waft him; they are  God's winds.    Let a man   attempt to do  that which'God forbids him t6 do,    or to  go into a place where God tells   him not  to go, the natural world as   well as   God  is against him. The lightnings are ready  to strike him,   the fires to burn him, the  sun to smite him,,  the   waters to  drown  him, and   the   earth   to   swallow   him.  Those whose   princely., robes   are woven  out of   heartstrings;    those   whose   fine  houses   are   built   out. of. skulls; those  whose springing fountains are thVtears of  oppressed nations���������have they successfully  cheated God?  The last day will demonstrate.- It will  be found out on that day that God vindicated not only his goodness and his  mercy, but his power to take care of his  own rights, and tho rights of his church,  and the rights of his oppressed children.  Come, ye martyred dead, 'awake, and  come up from the dungeons where folded  darkness hearsed you and the chains like  cankers peeled loose the skin and wore  off the flesh and rattle on the marrow-  less bones. Come, ye martyred dead,  from the stakes where you were tourned^.  where the arm uplifted for mercy felJt*  into the ashes, and the' cry of pain was  drowned in the snapping of tbe flame  and the howling of the mob; from  valleys of Piedmont and Smithfield market, and London Tower, and the highlands of Scotland. Gather in great procession and together clap your bony  hands, and together stamp your moldy  feet, and let the   chains that   bound you  Athletics in Enfrllsh Schools.  Of all the sports cultivated cricket has  the fewest 'characteristic features at the  public schools. This is not because it is  the least popular of the sports, but because it is the most popular. There is no  cricket but cricket, and. all England is  its prophet. It. is played in fields and  parks and by-ways. As you whiz through  England on the hysterical little railway  trains' the wayside swarms with men,  boys and children in white trousers. It  is played in .the morning, in the afternoon and in the long summer evenings  it is often .almost 10 o'clock before the  stumps.are drawn. It is played, I had  almost said,.- from the cradle to the  grave. And it is recorded that a famous  cricketer once excused a younger brother's  lack of skill by saying: "He never had a  chance to learn the game. He was so ill  ;that he couldn't begin playing until he  was 6 years old." If a boy isn't a past  master at cricket before he goes to school  there is little hope for him.  How*-much most schoolboys do play  'cricket is evident in the time and space  given to the game. At Eton, for instance,  there are seven separate grounds, each  with a name of.its own. The most exalted of these is Upper club, where the  "best 22 players in the school hold their  matches, and the school 11 plays its home  games. Then there is a Middle club, a  Lower club, an Upper Sixpenny, a  Lower Sixpenny and a lot more, the  names and offices of which no traveler's  pride could have induced me to learn.  Every "house," in fact, has its eleven  and, for all I know, its separate Held.  In all tho Eton cricket grounds cover 2  acres and afford room for almost 500 boys  to play cricket at one time.���������Harper's  Round Table.  They are coming, men and brethren.

The voyager, if he is not seasick, is dependent for comfort first on  the table steward. To this man it seems  to be the rule to give S3.50 for one, or  ������5 for two or three persons in party,  whether one is served in regular courses  or orders what he pleases from the bill.  Late suppers might increase the fee.  One's next best friend is the deck steward, if he is attentive and has followed  out suggestions about the steamer-ohair  and rugs. Sometimes one can eat on  deck when it is fatal to go below, and  then, if the deck steward is obliging, he  deserves the larger part of what would  go to the table steward in regular course.  If the weather is at all fair it is" most  agreeable to nnd one's chair well placed,  and the rugs dry every morning, especi- ,  ally if one is inclined to , sea-sickness.  Moreover, this * steward is the one who  continuously brings sandwiches and  broth on deck, and, ' as he is obliged  himself to fee the cook's assistant to get  these articles prepared, it is clear that he  6hould be well remembered at parting,  if any one is. On many lines his pay,  like that of most of the stewards, is not  higher than ������12 a month, and the company, on general principles, keeps back  one-third to pay for breakage. Another  third goes to the cooks in fees. Where,  therefore, would he be without his tips?  ���������From "The Art of Travel���������Ooean  Crosssings," by Lewis Morris Iddings,  in Scribner's.

Major Ginter, the '.Richmond tobacco  king, has resigned his position as director of the American Tobacco company  and will soon retire from active business,  worth ������8.000,000. When he laid down his  musket at Appomattox, he did not have  a dollar or the prospect of one. He  walked to Richmond and rolled a truck  for six months at 'a salary of ������1 a day.  His career is one of the most remarkable  in the business history of the country.  He is a man of great liberality. He has  given a great deal of money to charity  and worthy public enterprises. He built  the Jefferson, 'the :finest hotel in the  south, and one not surpassed in the  whole country for beauty of architecture  and general completeness. ��������� Atlanta  Journal.
