Albert had always gone to Sunday school and obeyed his parents, but John had been a bad boy. He had loved to torture kittens, to destroy birds' nests and. to make little girls cry. In time they grew to manhood and loved the same woman. Julia Birdsall worshiped Albert Rockingham until he was arrested for highway robbery and sentenced to the penitentiary for 27 years. Then her heart turned to stone. "Julia," he cried as they were leading him away, "Julia, Julia, I am innocent I" But she gave him the Chilkat pass and fainted in the arms of John Dawson, who smiled sardonically and muttered: "So much, Albert Rockingham, for being a good boy and going to Sunday school.'' Twelve ye;irs passed—12 weary, sorrow laden years, during which John Dawson made love to the woman who had promised to be Alberi; Rockingham's wife and collected the rents that the falsely accused man ought to have had. But Nemesis had all along been biding her time, and one day, when John Dawsou wasn't looking, she stole up and hit him 011 the solar plexus. Two days later Albert Rockingham emerged from prison, weighing 17 pounds more than ho did when he was sentenced. "Julia!" he cried when she stepped forward at the depot. "Albert!" screamed the beautiful girl, and their lips mut. Then John Dawson was led away, gritting his teetli and swearing that he was not through yet. Vain threat. He rotted in a dungeon, while Albert and Julia raised a large family and were truly happy, Tims virtue had triumphed, but mi- fortunately this didn't happen, in real life.

He Refera Specially to K Tarfety of tl»r» and In Cloainc Drawn a Remarkably Graphic Picture of a JIuqaenkde Ball. CCop right, 1S97. 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 test is Acts v, 1-10, "A certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, " etc. A well matched pair, alike in ambition and in falsehood, Ananias and Sapphira! They wanted a reputation for great beneficence, and they sold all their property, pretending to put the entire proceeds 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 reputation of so doing. Ananias first lied about it and dropped down dead. Then Sapphira lied about it, and she dropped down dead—die 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 may 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 lip. There are persons who are guilty of dishonesty of speech and then afterward say "may be," calling it a white lie, when no lie is that color. The whitest lie ever told was as black as perdition. There are those so given to dishonesty of speech that they do not know when they are lying. With some it is an 'acquired sin, and with Others it is a natural infirmity. There are those whom yon will recognize as born liars. Their whole, life, from cradle to grave, is filled up with vice of speech. Misrepresentation and prevarication are as natural to them as the infantile diseases and are a sort of 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 merchant's yardstick and sometimes Kit in the doors of churches. They are called by some fabrication, and they are called by some fiction. Yon might call them subterfuge or deceit or romance or fable or misrepresentation or delusion, but as I know nothing to be gained by covering np a God defying sin with a lexicographer's blanket I shall call them in plainest vernacular lies. They may be divided into agricultural, commercial, mechanical, social and ecclesiastical. multiplication becomes a virtue. Thera are large fortunes gathered in which there is not one drop of the sweat of •unrequited toil, and not one spark of bad temper flashes from the bronze bracket, and there is not one drop of needlewoman's heart's blood on the crimson plush, while there are other fortunes about which it may be said that on every doorknob, 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 wall paper, leaving its mark of blood—four fingers and a thumb—or if in the night the man should be aroused from his 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 conies down, and it is just as honest and just as Christian to be afflueat 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 traceried window, and the joy that flashes in the lights and that showers in the music and that dances in the quick feet of the children pattering through the hall has in it the favor of GOLD DUST WASHING POWDER Alaska!

Now that horses are passing away before the trolley, the cable, the bicycle and the horseless carriage many horse owners are learning for the first time that the use of sunbonnets on horses has materially decreased the mortality among them in Europe. The horses must present a droll appearance with their faces peering out of their straw bonnets, their ears also being visible through holes made for the purpose. Before the horse becomes quite extinct as a draft animal the sunbonnet might be used with advantage to lessen the misery of his remaining summers. The passing of the horse, by the way, is very generally deplored. Howeiver, no lover of animals will grieve over his ceasing to be. Nature was very cruel when she made horses. The victim ever of mail's ignorance, and until late years the victim also of his unchecked brutality, the victim also of his pleasurings and. his gambling, the horse — denied the power possessed by other domestic animals, such as the cat and the dog, ol voicing its anguish — has led a life of ghastly tragedy. Very occasionally from birth to death he has been well cared for. But the common lot of the horse has been the tortured fate of any sensitive creature at tie mercy of that most cruel of created things— mankind. The ] passing of the horse will very appreciably lessen the total of the world's suffering. — Vogue.

The Lying Farmer. First of all, I speak of agricultural falsehoods. There is something in th;< presence of natural objects that has a tendency to make one pure. The trees never issue false stoc-'- The wheatfields are always honest, l.ye and oats never move out in the night, not paying for the place they occupy. Corn shocks never make false assignment. Mountain brooks are always current. The gold of the wheatfields is never counterfeit, hut while the tendency of agricultural life is to make one honest, honesty is not i the characteristic of all who come i the city markets from the country di tricts. You hear the creaking of th dishonest farm wagon in almost everj street of our great cities—a farm wago in which there is not one honest spok or one truthful rivet, from tongue t tailboard. Again and again has domes tic economy in our great cities founder ed on the fanner's firkin. When NeT York and Washington sit down an, weep over their sins, let Westcheste county and the neighborhoods aroun this capital sit down and weep ove theirs. The tendency in all rural districts i to suppose that sins and transgression cluster in onr great cities, but citizens and merchants long ago learned that i is not safe to calculate from the charac ter of the apples on the top of the farm er's barrel -what is the character of the apples all the way down toward th bottom. Many of our citizens and mer chants have learned that it is always safe to see the farmer measure the barrel of beets. Milk cans are not al ways honest. There are those who in country life seem to think they have a right to overreach grain dealers auc merchants of all styles. They think it is more honorable to raise corn than to deal in. corn. The producer sometimes practically says to the 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 fact that his corn and rye are all the time progressing and adding to Ms fortune or his livelihood—the merchant tries to sleep, while conscious of the fact that at that moment the ship may be driving ou the rock or a wave sweeping over the hurricane deck spoiling his goods, or the speculators may 'be plotting a monetary revolution, or the burglars may be at that moment at liis 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 •nongh to have the hands blistered •with outdoor work, but it is harder •with, mental anxieties to have the brain •onsumed. God help the merchants, and do not let those -who live in country life come to tb* conclusion that all the dishonesties belong to city life. Rw l&lmt M«T rWnt. I pM" on to consider commercial h«*. Tb*w are tfco*e who apologize fbrde- Tiatkau from, the right and for practi- «il dtioeptioa "by lying it is cornnnr- li&l nurtom. In ether words, a lit by and they will die honest, but you and I know that there are in commercial life those who are guilty of great dishonesties of speech. A merchant 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 that the price he paid for it? 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?" "It is $5." "I can get that for $4 some-: where else." Can he get it for $4 some where else, or did he say that .just for the purpose of getting it cheap by depreciating the value of the goods? If so, he lied. There are just as many falsehoods before the counter as there axe behind the counter. A man unrolls upon the counter a bide of handkerchiefs. The customer says, "Are these all silk?" "Yes." "No cotton in them?" "No cotton in them." Are those handkerchiefs all silk? Then the 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, and the next time he comes to town and goes shopping he will look up at that sign and say: "No, I won't go that when the long protracted sickness t 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 "uot at home." Social life is struck through with insincerity. They apologize for the fact that the furnace is out; they have not had any lire iu it all winter. They apol ogize for the fare on their table; they never live 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 cue of the old masters. They say it is ail heirloom iu the family. It hung ou tho wall of a castle. A duke gave it to their grandfather! People that will lie about nothing else will lie abojv, a picture. Ou small income we want the world to believe we are affluent, and society today is struck through with cheat and counterfeit and sham. How few people are natural! Frigidity siails around, iceberg grinding against iceberg. You rust not 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 ohs and ahs and he, he, hes and sini- perings and namby panibyism, a, whole world of which is not worth one good honest round of laughter. From such a hollow scene the tortured guest retires at tho close of the evening, assuring the host that he has enjoyed himself. So- there. That's the place where I got j ciety is become so contorted and deform- those handkerchiefs." First, the merchant insulted God, and, secondly, he picked his own pocket. Who would take the responsibility of saying how many falsehoods were yesterday told by hardware men and clothiers aud lumbermen and tobacconists and jewelers and importers and shippers and dealers in furniture and dealers in coal and dealers iu 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 lauds, about everything. I arraign commercial falsehood as one of the crying sins of our time. The Trying Mechanic, I pass ou 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, nleu who speak th truth, and they are upright, and nianj of them are foremost in great philan thropies and in churches, but tliat they all do not belong to that class every ou< knows. In times when there is a grea demand for kbor it is uot so easy for such men. to keep their obligations, be cause they may miscalculate iu. rpgarc to the weather, or they may not be abl to get the help they anticipated in their enterprise. I am speaking now of those who promise to do that which they know they will not be able to do. They say they will come on Monday; they do not cotne until Wednesday. They say they will come on Wednesday; they do not come until Saturday. They say they will have the job done in 10 days; they do not get it done before 30. And when a man becomes irritated and will not stand it any longer, then they go and work for him a day or two and keep the job along, and then some one else jets irritated and outraged aud they go and work for that man and get him pacified, and then they go somewhere else. I believe they call that "nursing 1 the job." Ah, my friends, how much dishonor such men would save their souls if they would promise to do only that which iiey know they can do. "Oh," they say, "it's of no importance; everybody .xpects to be deceived and disappointed, '' There is a voice of thunder sounding among the saws and the hammers and the shears, saying, "All liars shall lave their place iu the lake that burns ith fire and brimstone.'' The Society IJe. I pass on to speak of social lies. How much of society is insincere? You hardy know what to believe. They send leir regards. You do not esactly know whether it is an expression of the heart external civility. They ask you to <nne to their house; you hardly know •tether they really want you to come. We are all accustomed to take a discount off what we hear. '' Not at home'' •17 often means too lazy to dress. I was reading of a lady who said she had old hftr last iaehionabla lie. There was knock at her door and she sent word town, "Not at home." That night h«r ed in this respect that a mountain cabin where the rustics gather at a quilting or an apple paring has in it more good cheer than all the frescoed refrigerators of the metropolis. The Church Lie. I pass on to speak of ecclesiastical lies, those which are told for the advancement or retarding of a church or sect. It is hardly worth your while to ask an escreme Calvinist what an Ar- minian believes. He will tell you tha an Arminian believes that man can save himself. An Arminian believes n such thing. It is hardly worth your while to ask an extreme Arminian wha a Calirinist believes. He will tell yot that a Calvinist believes that God mad some men just to damn them. A Cal vinist believes no such thing. It is hard ly worth your while to ask a Pedo-Baptist what a Baptist believes. He wil tell you a Baptist believes that immer sion is necessary for salvation. A Bap tist does not believe any such thing. I is hardly worth your while to ask a man who very much hates Presbyterian what a Presbyterian believes. He wil tell you that a Presbyterian believes that there are infants in hell a span long, and that very phniseology has come down from generation to genera tion in the Christian church. There never was a Presbyterian who believec that. "Oh," you say, "I heard some Presbyterian minister 20 years ago say sol" You did not. There never was a man who believed that, there never will be a man who will believe that, and yet from boyhood I have heard thai particular slander against a Christian church' going down through the community. Then how often it 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, and the congregation are so hardly bestead in life that 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 ike the corn because it is not ground in their mill. Oh, my friends, let us in all departments of life stand back from deception. But some one says, "The deception that I practice is so small that it don't amount to anything." Ah, my friends, does amount to a great deal! You say, "When I deceive, it is only about a case of needles or a box of buttons or row of pins." But the article may be go small you can put it in your rest weket, 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 a» a small sin. They are all vast and stu- because thejwill come under inspection in' the day ot 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 mada "It is naught, it is naught, saith the bnyer, 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 tomes of eternity, "Mr. So-and-so, doing business on Pennsylvania avenue, or Broadway, or Chestnut street, or State street, told one lie." The Masquerade. May God extirpate from society all the ecclesiastical lies, and all the social lies, and all the mechanical lies, aud all the commercial lies, and aD tho agricultural lies, aud nmke 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 demonstrate before an assembled universe just what we are. The secret will come out We may hide it while, xve live, but we cannot hide it when we die. To many life is a masquerade ball. As at such entertainment gentlemen and ladies appear iu garb of kings or queeus or mountain bandits or clowns and then at the. close of the dance put off their disguise, so many all through life are iu mask. The masquerade ball goes on, and gemmed hand clasps gemmed hand, and dancing feet respond to dancing feet, and gleamiug brow bends to gleaming bro\v, and the masquerade ball goes bravely on, but after awhila languor comes and blurs the sight. Lights lower. Floor hollow with 'Sepulchral echo. Music saddens into a wail. Lights lower. Now the masquerade is hardly seen. The fragrance is exchanged for the sickening odor of garlands that have lain a long while in tho damp of sepulchers. Lights lower. Mists fill the room. The scarf drops from the shoulder of beauty, a shroud. Lights lower. Torn leaves and withered! garlands now hardly cover up the ulcered feet. Stench, of lamp wicks almost quenched. Choking dampness. Chilliness. Feet still. Hands folded. Eyes shut. Voice hushed. Lights out.
