C., Dr. Easton, pastor, OQ the subject of "Christianity vs. Infidelity." Mr. Morse's address received close attention from tliclarj, p c audience, which included a number of senators and representatives. Mr. Morse said in part: "I suppose it is hardly necessary for me to lei] any person present that 1 am not a clergyman, but I remember to i have heard ray father say, after he had preached the Gospel for more than fifty years, that the minister needed witnesses, men in active life, public men, business men, to stand up and say that the Gospel is true. That is the basis on which I consent to speak to-night, for I haven't the egotism to suppose that I can add anything to tho preaching of tho learned pastor of this church, a man who has made the Gospel a study for a lifetime. "There is a question that is pertinent right here, that is found in the book; the question is: 'If a man die shall he live again?' What is tho answer that infidelity gives to that question? Listen to Mr. Ingersoll's answer. Mark you this is a solemn occasion when he says this. Hark! he is standing by tho coffin of his brother. Now listen, he says: 'Life is a narrow veil between cold and barren peaks of two eternities.' 'We strive in vain to look beyond the height, we cry aloud and the only answer is tho echo of our wailing cry.' 'From tho voiceless lips of the unreplying dead there comes no word.' Flow do you like it? Listen once more; ho is standing by tho coffin of a little child now. Hark! Listen to the consolation ho gives these parents. He says: 'We cannot say that death is notgood; we don't know whether the grave is the end of this life or the door to another,. or whether night here is not somewhere else a dawn; every cradle asks us whence, and every coffin asks us whither.' How do you like it? What is. the answer the learned pastor of this church would give on such an occasion? "At .Marsh acid, m iny district, no buried the mortal remains of Daniel Webster, the great expounder and defender of the constitution. As he drew near the eud he asUt-d to have the j Scriptures read. They brought in the o'.d book that Mr. Ingorsoll reviles, and read the Psalm beginning: 'The- Lord is j my shepherd,' and ending: 'Though I I w:':l!c through the s-hmlow of death 1 j will four no ill. Thy rod ami Thy stair they comfort, me.' 'That statf i.s \vlu:t I need now,' suid the dying statesman. If this man of giant mind and masterly intellect, and overmastering genius needed that staff amiu the .swellings of Jordan, what will sueh men as Mr. in; gcr.soll, and you and I. do without ii'.'"

I venture that he would get out this old book which Mr. Ing-ersoll reviles, and he would read out of it: 'Fie that livcth and bclieveth in Me, though he wore dead, yet shall ho live.' "Mr. Ingersoll says there arc three hundred contradictions in this book. Thej arc all in his poor brain. Tbe book is all right when it is rightly understood. He delivered a lecture in Boston not long since, on the 'Mistakes of Moses." I wonder what Moses -would think of the mistakes of 'Bob' Ingcr- Boll? While he was on his way to deliver his last blasphemous lecture in this city, there was an average of two churches built in this country, and millions of our countrymen were celebrating the birth of Jesus. "Ingersoll is as powerless to stop the progress of the Gospel as a chipping squirrel sitting on a railroad track would be to stop the Chicago lightning express, or a 'bobolink', sitting on the fence to keep the sun from rising. Now 'Who art thou that repliest against God?' And I say, God pity the man that dashes himself against the bosses of Jehovah's buckler. "Mr. Ingersoll is reported to have said: 'How do you know that there is any such God as the God of the Bible? Did anybody ever see Him? 1 £"•>, Mr. Ingersoll, we never saw Him. We might ask him if he had ever seen his own brains. Astronomy tells us that the sun is ninety-five millions of miles from this -earth, and if it were a hollow sphere it wc.ild contain a thousand worlds like ours; and a man asks you and me if we had ever seen God, and wouldn't believe there was a. God because he hadn't-seen Him. Astronomy tells us that there arc eighty millions of solar systems floating in space, and for j aught I know they all revolve around j the throne of God. I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ jut the whole Gospel into the parable, when He said: 'The Kingdom of Heaven s like unto a merchantman, seeking goodly pearls, -who, when he had found one pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.' lave yon got that 'pearl? If so yon are rich and you are wise. If you have it not you are poor and blind and naked and foolish.' Jont Wlutt Rcul'.y Occurred Upon a Celc- brntod OocKsion. Here is a true version of an oft-told Story of Whistler, the distortion bearing only a faint racial likeness to the original: A man from nowhere made a large fortune in London and at once proceeded to indulge a genuine, if somewhat crass, love of art. He sent ag-eiits thu length and breadth of Europe to purchase the highest-priced pictures to be had; old masters, if possible; if not, copies by first-class artists, if they could be got to do the work. Modern artists were patronized in the original; in fact, he set up a private Luxembourg crossed with a spurious Louvre. The home he built him was magnificent. No man in London with leanings 1 toward -art had such a house. Everybody, or nearly everybody, who was ; invited went to see it, to remain, to feast, even to gaze upon the millionaire at his easel, brush in hand, the robes of Japan or of Greece flowing about him. | But one crumpled roseleaf had the millionaire. Whistler would not go to his home. Millais, Tadema, Sargent and a hundred lights, only a trifle or so less distinguished, had graced his board, but Whistler could not be got through the front door- When he saw the millionaire coming he whisked around the corner: his notes of invitation, of adulation, he did not condescend to open; he turned a deaf ear to importunities of mutual friends. The art millionaire was in despair. His wine turned to gall, his palette ' grinned at him, his sleep was infected with nightmare, which wore the disdainful smirk of Whistler. Even the famous white lock seemed to assume an air of lofty unattainableness. I short, he was miserable, for until Whistler, the exigcaut, the eccentric, the impossible, set the cachet of his approval, the art millionaire's position in tho world of art was open to dispute. One day Whistler abruptly sent him word that he would c.ill upon him the next morning nt ten o'clock. What actuated the great man will never be known. The simplest explanation is that it was one of his many freaks. ' The art millionaire, fairly palpitating with joy, received Whistler at tho entrance of his palatial homo, effusive with welcome. Whistler bowed gravely. DC uttered never a word. The millionaire offered his arm. Whistler took- it impassively aad permitted himself to be conducted over the house, lie walked through rooms filled with the treasures of Japan, of Tndia, of Turkey: rooms hung with priceless tapestries, inlaid with rare porcelains; rooms representing "apartments in an- i cicnt Greece, Rome, Pompeii. De stared ! with fixed eyes and said never a word. I A dining-room taken from a feudal castle, a hall arched like Cleopatra's bedrooms, whoso silk' n hangings coulil have prone through the eye of. a needle : —never a word. I TUB host, much perturbed, but willing to make all allowances for tho eccentricities of genius, finally flung aside the portieres of a great studio. In it were such couches and stuffs and curios as artists dream of. Th» easels were solid rosewood. Twrj-guiuca-an- hoTir models awaited the leisure of the millionaire. Never a word. Whistler permitted his stony stare to roam from ! -one object to another, tbcn swung his h->st about, led him through the portieres, and made for the entrance. As : they descended the grand staircase the millionaire burst forth: | "Great heavens, Mr. Whistler! Ain't ' yon poing to say anything?" Whistler turned abruptly and regarded him for a moment with a solemn stare. Then he brought his hand heavil)- down on the millionaire's back and exclaimed hoarsely: "It's amazing! And—there's—no—ex cuse—for it."—2s". Y. Stin. and Ulsters. Don't let your boys freeze when we will sell you a good Overcoat for $1. Remember we mean to sell these goods at Your Own Price BUY NOW!

Since visiting this prison, writes Ron. Florence O'Driscoll, in Century, I have never ceased wondering at two things whenever I have thoughtof the subject: first, why the prisoners stay there at all; second, if determined to remain in prison when captured, how anyone can dare to be-a criminal in China. The buildings were none of them above twelve or thirteen feet hign" at the loftiest part of the roofs, and many were much lower. The outer door, unguarded, stood open, leading to some narrow pa-ssagcs with rectangular turns. Seated drowsily in the shade- were two or three men in ordinary Chinese outdoor dross. Some children were playing about the alley, while a woman or two looked on. There was nowhere to be seen an official uniform indicating- the presence of a soldier or a warder. I Inside were fifteen or twenty fcro- ' cious-looking- creatures. They were human beings and tame, but they looked wild: the little clothing they wore was in rags and tatters. A chain about a foot long fastened the legs of i each tofjuthcr, pieces of iron being bent round the ankles and looped into each ' end of the links. They were apparent- j ly half starved; their eyes u-cre like j those of wild beasts; their heads and < faces were unshaven, and showed ; some inches of black growth standing straight on end. Though their queues were plaited, the hair was so rullled as to make the plaiting almost indistinguishable. The place was a small courtyard about twenty ortwenty-five fectsquare. One great stall, like a cowshed, ran round it, barred up in front with the usual flimsy round saplings, except here and there an opening was left for convenience of passing in and out. 1 did not feel particularly anxious to go in among the occupants, but as they all walked out to have a look at me, leaving the place empty, I entered. They then came back again, and stared at me. Possibly I was as strange a sight to them as they were to me. The heat was intense, and beat fiercely upon the granite paving stones; the heat in the stall was still greater. Nothing- that in the remotest degree re sembleda bed was anywhere to be seen; not a bit of straw 'or even any rags. There were only dirty granite slabs to lie upon. The place smelt ill, and was very dirty; so indeed were the prisoners. The guide said they wore all sentenced to be beheaded, and that at any time the mandate might arrive fixing an-immediate date for their execution, i But nobody seemed to troublu himself in the least about the matter. I now returned to the court only to find the magistrate had not arrived, j After some tiujejl proposed to go. but ' the guide sug-g-ested • wailing for. another ten minutes, saying tha" five or sis prisoners had been sent for. I momentarily expected them to file in under the charge of an armed guard. Just as I was about to give up all hope of seeing the court sit, I heard the clanlt of chains. Here were the prisoners at last. A Chinaman unattended by any guard came in, and sat on a long low bench in one corner of the court. Oe wore Lobble-chains of the usual • pattern- Presently another walked in, apparently of his own volition, for no one was guarding or directing him. Be also sat down. I noticed that tbe hobble-irons bad made sores on his ankles, and be had tied a stringfTonnd the calve* of lu«, lejrs whichjKld the piece* of bent iron midway between . bis anicies ana iu» calves. Then another prisoner, also unattended, clanked in, wearing one of the square wooden collars. De sat down, twisted the collar diamond-fashion, und supported its-weight by holding its lower apex between his knees, "lie is a pirate," said the guide. The information was hardly necessary; he looked more like what tny imagination had figured a pirate to bo than ever any picture had shown roe. All that could be seen, when he s»t down, was a large diamond-shaped piece of wood, with a terrible head glaring in'its center, bare knees and! legs with ankles chained together, and : fingers clasping the lower side of the diamond, wnerc they helped to support it. Those hands were • like birds'claws, with long, dirty .-curved talons on them; his queue was large and fuzzy, like the| ta.il of a maddened cat; the front half of his head, once shaven, wore a growth' of black fiber standing straight on end,' about two inches long—a sort.of halo one' might imagine a devil would wear. Dig chin and upper lip were covered .with black hair standing straight out stiflly,' like the bristles of a clothes brush- perhaps the growth of two months. His black eyes, never resting for a moment, glittered like beads in tho suu- shinc, and, with his strong white toetb, made strange contrast to their background of dirty, yellow, soaked-parch-' mont-like skin. lie wasa typical pirate. Perhaps it was nol. to be wondered at. Two months passed in such conditions a-s had environed this man would probably transform the nosit pious-look-ing church deacon into a pi rate of the wildest and most blood lliirsty type, who aa a modul would make tho fortune of a realistic painter. Olntmnit for Brnliied Tree*. Mr. S. D. \VilJord, in the Rural Yorker, states that nothing is better! for covering the bruises on trees than oil ; shellac with, perhaps, a little flower, 1 of sulphur and a few drops of carbolic 1 acid, which last ingredient should b«' used very sparingly. The mixture can be, applied with a paint brush. For tho exclusion of the air from wounds, it tsj suggested that a grafting wax, madcofi for parts of resin, two parts of bces-i wax and one of tallow, melted to-; gether, poured into water and immedi-- ately worked and made up into half-' pound rolls, is convenient to have ready] for use.' Held in the hands so that it> is softened, a small lump of it may be: spread over a wound, and it will re-' main for some time arid keep out aix ? and germs of disease. If the wound is] large the application may need to b«' repeated- . I-~niit JO»U:A<! of Gram. Much more food can be grown on an acre devoted to fruit than can be produced with anj' kind of grain. Fruit growing also provides a greater amount of work and requires a larger number of helpers. To the extent that fruit growing is substituted for grain grow-' ing there will naturally be an increase of country farming population. This is what is the most needed to make land valuable. The growing of grain makes the land poorer, especially wbere the grain is sold. \Vhcre frnit isgrown the chief loss to the soil is in the mineral elements, and the sa'e of the fruit brings money to purchase these. Selling grain never returns enough to restore the fertility expended in growing tt.—Rural World. . Something Wrong:. Jlrs.
