Edward A. Collier, In X. Y. Observer. SPIRITUAL DIETETICS. •Th« Word of Goil Ig the Source of a Needful Supply. When the Apostls John in his second epistle says: "Behold. I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth," there seems to b=» a suggested analogy l>etween bodily andspiritualhealth,such *s may properly be considered in respect to means oi promoting health of bodj and health of soul. Evidently the first requisite in promoting bodily health is a sufficient supply of suitable food. Unquestionably, health of body ia greatly affected by the quality and «[uantity of food; and -what is thus true in relation to the body is eqtially true as. to the soul. An adequate amount of * proper kind of spiritual nutriment is needful in order to securing- the best condition of the soul, which like the body, must be kept from famishing or perishing for want of ailment, or on account of noxious diet. The Word of God is the great source ol this- needful supply, affording as it does appropriate food for the soul in all the various stages and conditions "of spiritual life. The_ great Teacher has said: "Man shall' not live by 'bread •alone, but by every word that proceed«th out of the mouth of God." The soul has its necessities in Tegard to nutrition, as well as the body,, nor can the one, any more than 'the other, do without constant nourishment. Both alike must be sup-' plied with nutriment, and undoubtedly •the best sustenance of the soul is furnished by the revealed truth of God contained in the .-Holy .Scriptures. Thns';Job said: • 'I have esteemed the words' ol' His month more"' flian" my •necessary food." ICo more could .he dispense "with ' that Word than with his 4a2y Abroad, Dr. Wayland wrote of himself during- a period of feeble health: "Blessed be God, laraable to read His _^WorS with increasing interest, and to •entertain a more constant hold of eternal 'life." : The Apostle Paul teaches that in the spiritual life, as ia the physical life, milk is adapted to babes, and strong meat to matured men, and both the milk and the meat are found in the Word of God, from which the renewed isoulmust derive its "necessary /food." Without this soul-food there can be no aoul-health, if, indeed, there can be any soul-lite. Spiritual health can no more ^be secured without the Word of God than natural health can be secured without food for the body. Not more certainly will the body- famish and .become sickly without its required food than will the soul starve and sicken without •the sustenance found only in the Word of God. Every healthy soul must be fbetter fed than any soul can be in the •neglect of this essential means of being in the most desirable of all health. To 'neglect the Bible, therefore, is to im- Iperil the souL Surely, there should be no occasion for saying, as has been said: "In days gone by, the Bible occupied ,that position which God and our soul's r'destinies demanded; when at home— •, "labroad — on the Sabbath— in. the week—. : lit stood foremost; when the hoary— -tie [middle-aged— the child-r-reverenoed its ipages and treasured its precepts. But a ^ change has come over us. Religions : books, periodicals and papers cluster 'around; and the Bible has given place, land lies splendidly. bound on the table, ^ ,or dust-covered on the obscure- shelf ; r an encumbrance- alike lin- of founding- a •'Discontented Club," of which the constitution and by-laws shonld.be as follows: "Anywhere but where I am; any thing but what I have; and, the best is good enough for ine." A great many of us would be well qualified ior membership in such a club, though we might shrink nominating ourselves. Nothing is more general than the feeling that my -trials, are peculiarly sharp, my life is exceptional^ ally cramped and thwarted, my lot in some ways a little bit harder than any body else's. : .-•'.-• We are specially apt to fall into this very mischievous fallacy in connection with • our religious experiences. Few young Christians, that ha7e not said to themselves: "If f didn't have just these influences about'me, or just these obstacles to overcome; ,ii I didn't lack just these qualities; if" I only .had the abili- ties.ahd opportunities of such an one; what a consistent and useful member of the church I should be, what a beautiful life I could live." Indeed, young Christians sometimes carry this sort of thing so far ' that they torment themselves with the idea of changing somehow their -natural situation and course in Life for the purpose of serving the Lord more acceptably. If we could only shift our angle of vision when we are brooding and moping in this morbid fashion we should, like as not, discover that the veryjper- sons in whose places we are idly wishing ourselves are fancying how much they would like to be in our places. What we need to remember is that God has put us where we are, and that the service He seeks from us is that which we can render precisely there. .The thing we have to do is always the hardest thing. Something else, which we don't have to do, always looks easier. The way to show our Christian purpose, and pluck, and heroism, is to take right hold and do the most and the best we can in the circumstances in which we find ourselves. The "all things" we can do "through Christ which strengthened us" doesn't mean all sorts of romantic, and impossible, and conspicuous performances; it means all things, no matter how commonplace or irksome, that belong to our lives as, they are, and make up right, pure, j-ost, kind conduct day by day. If we fail, in these things don't let us talk about noble discontent and aspirations after grander service. Let us call a spade a spade, and say honestly that it is laziness and shirking. Instead of fancying we are like some great missionary or martyr, let us recognize rather. our likeness to the "pious" darky who stopped in "his work and surveying his cotton patch, soliloquized thus; "De cotton grows so slow, and de weeds grows so fast, and de sun am so hot, and 'de redbugs so plenty, dat I feels like I had a call fum de Lawd to go to preaehin'."—N. Y. Examiner. READ GOOD BOOKS. POLITICAL NOTES. Democratic, Senators have got far enough along with their revolutionary conspiracy to justify it by secession arguments;—Sioux City JournaL H3F"The Democrats have gained two Senators—one in New York and one in Wisconsin—and in both cases the men chosen are infinitely less able and worthy .than the.' jneri whom they succeed.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. JSfThe Democratic party' in Congress and in the Southeastern States has become a dangerous and disturbing party to the solid interests of the country, and is-not fit to be intrusted'to wield the power of a great and glorious nation like this.— N. Y. Mail and Express. J lt^~We hear something occasionally about State pride. It is a pity that some National pride could,not be inculcated at Washington to induce Congress to refrain from bringing discredit on the American name. But that can hardly be expected until the Democratic party" undergoes an entire change.— Indianapolis Journal. BSThere is a great deal of nonsensical Democratic talk about "gag law" in the United States Senate. But the most discreditable "gagging" has been' done by the minority in blocking- the wheels of legislation. If the minority is able ta deprive the majority of its legitimate and constitutional right to rule, then it is high time to apply a ' 'gag 1 '' which will put a stop to such revolutionary proceedings.—Troy Times. I5^~'''0f what use is a legislative body if the minority is allowed to pursue a dog in the manger policy and thus completely block the wheels of legislation?" asks the Sterling Gazette. The fight in the Senate was on the simple issue as to whether the majority shall rule—whether a majority in Congres3 ; shall enact a law to protect the majority at the South in the right of suffrage. Owing to the help of a few. traitors in the Republican ranks, the minority defeated "the majority.—Chi- jago JournaL - WKat Makes a tfatlon. Fifty millions of people on three millions of square miles of territory do not constitute the United States of America. A million or so of people occupying twenty-one thousand square miles did not constitute Greece. It was the Greeks who constituted Greece; it is Americans who constitute America. So many people thrown together on one territory no : more, make. a ..nation than- so-many blocks of stone thrown together, in a pile make a temple, or so many types in pi a book, qr so. many, threads in a tangle a fabric. Every nation has its own distinguishing features, its own, type of character, its own consciousness, its own life. To constitute a nation there must be not only people and land and laws, but lnvfs that are self-evolved, literature j;hat is the expression of na- fconal life, language fitted to express that life, and therefore a life to be expressed.— Century. Read What Hon. Wm. E.Gladstone SAY S: ' All who healthily prosper in soul 'annst make much of the Bible, and un- "•dervalneitno more than did the converted Tahitians when France took pos- leession of their island; they, hurrying to -(the mountains, left their Bibles with ithe missionaries until they should come -back, to save them as fugitives from ..carrying them so. far; but ere' long they 1 «ame back, in. the face of danger, to say that they could not live without their Bibles, and must have them, what- ^«ver might befall them as captives. '•Their valuation of the " Uible should-be more common, and there" should be a greater number of those who so.regard It they could not do without it as they, yalne-their highest welfare. This Book of books should be read .much, and only ±oad less because it can not: be read more. Lord Bacon tells of -a certain, Bishop who used to bathe regularly twice every day, and on being asked •why he bathed thus of ten replied: "Be-cause I can not conveniently do it three , times." So, those who love the Scriptures as affording them necessary spirit• nal nutriment, if asked why they read. , '.the Bible 'so often should be able hon- -*8tly to reply: "Because 1 we can not : .find time to read it oftenen"~Watch- Janun. - ; . •••'.-' A Careful Pernsal of the Best literature . will Make all More Spiritually Minded. Not enongh do Christian people consider the relation of their reading to their religious life. There is little thought given to either what may be helpful or detrimental. There can be no doubt that the Scriptures receive little of that careful, meditative perusal which is essential to spiritual benefit, and the average church member gives no proper regard to the literature which may tend to make" him more spiritually minded and stimulate him to Christian work. We believe there is nothingmore helpful to intelligent Christian people to promote piety and zeal than the lives of the saints of the present century. As to other books, how many church members sit down to a studied, earnest reading of any work which is devoted to the history of any modern mission or to any treatise which presents the argument for any phase of Christian doctrine? A five-cent pamphlet may have been skimmed, but who' that reads these lines, except here and there a minister, give any one solid book a thoroughly ; thoughtful reading in all the year?' In some instances the prescribed course of ;a Chautauqua circle may have been: followed, but does any one believe that ih'e bulk of -church members give • themselves to profitable reading? There-is no doubt that in this age the novel has often been made the vehicle for much useful instruction and to aid great'reforms. Sometimes shams and hypocrisies have .been reached by the 'sarcastic showing, up of a story where an essay would have failed to effect good. Nevertheless there are many church members whose lives are being frittered • away by novel reading. We believe that if in eyfry household we could secure the perusal of books devoted, to Christian biography and enterprise, we should see a marked advance in spirituality and consecration.—Christian Inquirer. CHOICE EXTRACTS. Through the Weary IIoux« Of many a night, made doubly long by Its rro- traded agony, the rheumatic sufferer tosses to and fro on his sleepless coueh, vaiary praying lor that rest wnlch only comes oy fits and starts. His malady Is one which ordinary medicines too olten fail to relieve, b«t there is ample evidence to prove that the efficient blood depurent, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, affords the rheumatic a reliable means ot relief. ' Check the malady, in Its incipient stages,.when the first premonitory- twinges come on, with this agreeable medicine, and avoid years of torture. Whatever be the rationale of the active Influence of the Bitters upon this malady, certain It is that no evidence relating to its effects Is more" direct than that which relates to its action In, cases of rheumatism. Like all sterling remedies remedies, however. It deserves a protracted systematic trial, and should not be abandoned • because not at once remedial. It Is equally efficacious In dyspepsia, Indigestion and kindred diseases. Stol2 Be Sure H you have made up your mind to buy Hood's Sarsaparilla do not be induced to take iny other. -Hood's Sarsaparilla is a peculiar medicine, possessing, by virtue ot Its peculiar combination, proportion, and preparation, curative power superior to any other article. A'Eoston lady who knew what she wanted, and whose example is worthy imitation, tells .her experience below: To Get " In one store where I went to buy Hood's Sarsaparilla the clerk tried to induce me buy their own instead.of Hood's; he told me thelr's would last longer; that I might takeitonten days' trial; that i I did;not.like it! need/not pay anything, etc. But he could not prevail on me. to change. I told him I knew what Brood's Sarsaparilla was. I had taken it, was latlsfled -with it, and did not want any other. Hood's When I began taking Hood's SarsaparlHa I was feeling, real miserable, suffering a. great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak that at times I could, hardly stand. I looked, and had for some time, like a person In consumption. Hood's Sarsaparilla did me so much good that I wonder at myself sometimes, and my friends frequently speak, ol It." MES. . ELLA A.

Four thousand separate biographies are included under this feature—a feature embraced in NO OTHER CYCLOPAEDIA NOW IN PRINT. In History I find the history of every nalion that has flourished, full£Outlined—i the physical geography, the geology, climate, natural productions—animal or plants, fete.,; as well as the governmental, religious, Bocial and commercial status, of-each perion of its history—whether of Babylon, Egypt, India.
