In an abbreviated earthly existence in the fact that it pats one sooner in the center of things. All astronomers, infidel as well as Christian, agree in believing that the universe swings around borne great center. Any one who has studied the earth and stndied the heavens knows that God's favorite figure in geometry is a circle. When God put forth his hand to create the universe, he did not strike that hand at right angles, but he waved it in a circle and kept on waving in a circle until systems and constellations and galaxies and all worlds took that motion. Our planet swinging aronnd the snn, other planets swinging aronnd other suns, but somewhere u great hub, around which the great wheel of the universe turns. Now the center is heaven. That is the capital of the universe. That i.s the grear metropolis of immensity. Does not our common sense teach us that in matters of study it is bettor for us to move out from the center toward the circumference rather than to bo on the circumference, where our would now is? We are like those who study the American continent while standin on the Atlantic beach. The way to study the continent is to cross it or go to the heart of it. Our. standpoint in this world is defective. We are at the wrong end of the telescope. The best way to study a piece of machinery is not to stand on the doorstep and try to look in, but to go in with the engineer and take our place right amid the saws and the cylinders. We wear our eyes out and our brain out from the fact that we aro studying tinder such great disadvantage. Millions of dollars for observatories to study things about tho moon, abont the sun, about the rings of Saturn, abont transits and occultations and eclipses, simply because our studio, our observatory, is poorly situated. We are down in the cellar trying to study fche palace of the universe, while our departed Christian friends have gone up stairs amid the skylights to study. Now, when one can sooner get to the center of things, is he not to be congratulated? Who wants to be always in the freshman class? We study God in this world by the Biblical photograph of him, but we all know we can in five minutes of interview with a friend get more accurate idea of him than we can by studying him 50 3*ears through pictures or words. The little child that died last night knows more of God than all Andover, and all Princeton, and all New Brunswick, and all Edinburgh, and all the theological institutes in Christendom. Is it not better to go up to the very headquarters of knowledge? At the Center. Does not our common sense teach ns that it is better to be at the center than to be clear out on the rim of the wheel, j holding nervously fast to the tire, lest wo be suddenly hurled into light and ; eterual felicity?

What fools we a!l are to prefer the circumference to the center. What a dreadful thing it would be if we should be suddenly ushered from this wintry world into the Maytime orchards of heaven and if our pauperism of sin and sorrow should be suddenly broken up by a presentation of an emperor's castle surrounded by parks, with springing fountains and paths up and down which angels of God walk two and two. We are like persons standing on the cold steps of the national picture gallery in London, under umbrella in the ram. afraid to go in amid the Turners and the Titiaus and the Raphaels. I come to them and say, "Why, don't yon go inside the gallery?" "Oh." they say, "we don't know whether we can get in." I say, "Don't you see the door is open?" "Yes," they say. "but we have been so long on these cold steps, we are so attached to them, we don't IrJte to leave." "But,"Isay, "it is so much brighter and more beautiful in the gallery ; you had better go in. " •' No,'' they say, "we know exactly how it is out here, but we don't know exactly how it is inside." So we stick to this world as though •we preferred cold drizzle to warm habitation, discord to cantata, sackcloth to royal purple—as though we preferred a piano with four or five of the keys out of tune to an instrument fully attuned, as though earth and heaven had exchanged apparel and earth had taken on bridal array and heaven had gone into deep mourning, all its waters stagnant. all its harps broken, all chalices cracked at the dry wells, all the lawns sloping to the river plowed with graves, with dead angels under the furrow. Oh, I want to break up my own infatuation, and I want to break up your infatuation with this world. I tell you if we are ready, and if our work is done, the sooner we go the better, and if there are blessings in longevity I want you to know right well there are also blessings in, an abbreviated earthly existence. Fortunate Escapes. If the spirit of this sermon is true, how consoled you ought to feel about members of your family that went early. "Taken from the evil to come." this book says. What a f ortunat* escape they had. How glad we ought to feel thac they will never have to go through the struggles which we have had to go through. They had just time enough to get out of the cradle and run up on the springtime hills of this world and see how it looked, and then they started for a better stopping place. They were like shire that cut in at SL. Helena, there long "enough to let passengers go op and see the barracks of Napoleon 'a captivity, and then hoist sail for the port of their own native land. They only took this world in trausitu. It is hard for us, but it is blessed for them, And if the *pirit of this sermon ia true, then we ought not to go around righing and groaning when another year is going, but we ought to go down on one knee by the milestone and see the letters and thank God that we are 365 miles nearer home. We ought not to go aronnd with morbid feelings about our health or about anticipated demise. We ought to be living not according to that old maxim which I used to hear in my boyhood that you must live as though every «lay were the last; yon must live as though you were to live forever, for you will. Do not be nervous lest you have to move out of a shanty into an Alhambra, One Christmas day I witnessed something very thrilling. We had just distributed the family presents Christmas morning when I heard a great cry of distress in the hallway. A child from a neighbor's house came in to say her father was dead. It was only three doors off, and I think in two minutes we were there. There lay the old Christian sea captain, his face upturned toward the window, as though he had suddenly seen the headlands, and with an illuminated countenance, as though he were just going into harbor The fact was he bad already got through the Narrows. In the adjoining room were the Christmas presents waiting for his distribution. Long ago, one night when he had narrowly escaped with his ship from being run down by a great ocean steamer, he had made his peace with God, and a kinder neighbor or a better maa than Captain Pendleton you \\-ould not find this side of heaven. Without a moment's warning the pilot of the heavenly harbor had met him jusc off the lightship. Faith In God. He had often talked to me of the goodness of God and especially of a time when he was about to enter New Yori harbor with his ship from Liverpool and he was suddenly impressed that h ought to pat back to sea. Under th protest of the crew and under their very threat he put back to sea, fearing a the same time ha was losing his mind for it did seem so unreasonable tha when they could get into harbor tha night they should put back to sea. Eu they put back to sea, and Captain Pen dleton said to his mate, "You call m at 10 o'clock at night. " At 12 o'clock at night tbe captain was aroused anc said: "Whatdoes this mean? I though I told you to call me at 10 o'clock, am hers it is 12. " "Why," said the mate "I did call you at 10 o'clock, and you got up, looked around and told me tc keep right on the same course for two hours, and then to call yon at 12 o'clock," Said the captain: "Is it pos Bible? I have no remembrance of that. At 12 o'clock the captain went on deck, and through the rift of a clouc the moonlight fell upon the sea am showed him a shipwreck with 100 strug gling passengers. He helped them off Had he been any earlier or any later a that poiut of the sea he would have been of no service to those drowning people. On board tho captain's vesse they began to band together as to what they should pay for the rescue and wha they should pay for the provisions. "Ah," says the captain, "my lads, you can't pay me anything. All I have on board is yours. I feel too greatly honored of God in having saved you to take any pay. " Just like him. He never go any pay except that of his own applaud ing conscience. Oh, that the old sea captain's Goc might be my God and yours! Amid the stormy seas of this life may we havu al ways some one as tenderly to take care of ns as the captain took care of the drowning crew and the passengers. Anc may we come into the harbor with as little physical pain and with as bright a hope as ho had, and if it should happen to be a Christmas morning, when the presents are being distributed and we are celebrating: the birth of him who came to save our shipwrecked world, all the better, for what grander, brighter Christmas present could we have than heaven? BiB Msgmets For Hoisting Iron. It is known that for some time past electro magnets have been used at Woolwich for hoisting shells and for other purposes. It appears that these can De advantageously employed for handling plates in plate mills. A recent installation of electro magnets for this purpose has proved remarkably successful. A primary difficulty \vas encountered in the circumstance of the magnets picking up too many plates at one time, as the magnetism was carried for some distance through the pile.

After the magnet has been lowered cm to a pile of plates and several plates have been taken up together, the operator simply pulls the switch out, thereby breaking the current for an instant. By this operation one or two plates can be dropped off at each breaking of the current, sufficient residual magnetism remaining with the plates nest to the magnet to hold them until the current is switched on again. The operation is continued until only one plate is attached. With double pole magnets up to five cous cau be safely handled, taking four amperes at ^ volts.—London Industries and Iron.

They had no place in the early English dinner and were first introduced into that country in the time of the Stuarts, when the French revival took place under Charles 1. At first they were simply accompaniments to other courses, being composed of various sweet things, designed, according to an old Norman writer, "to take the taste of the horrible cookery out of their mouths.'' In the course of time the sweets were put in a course by themselves, which stimulated the French cooks to put forth their constant endeavors to invent new dishes.

Giovanni Tolu, a bandit, who for 30 years was tho terror of Sardinia, died a few months ago. after having related tbe story of his life to a lawyer, with the request that i; be published for this purpose: "To warn the unfortunates of my class and to teach the officials how to proceed if they -would better the condition of ths poor and unlucky. " According to his autobiography Tola was the most pious man that ever cut a throat oi" stole a purse. He began his career of crime by trying to kill a priest who prevented his marriage with the girl of his heart. Nevertheless, in his subsequent life, he had a worshipful regard for the cloth. He confessed, he attended mass, he even prayed in the presence of his dead victims. "Before I took the life of a traitor or a rich oppressor of the poor," he explains in his book, "I always besought the Virgin and the saints to advise and comfort me. On the day when I resolved to kill Salvatore Moro I sought the aid of heaven. On my way to him I called without ceasing on the mother of God to enlighten me and advise me whether my comrade really deserved" to die. I also commended my soul to God's care in case 1 should go under in the combat. When I had shot Moro dead, I loaded my gun again, laid the stock on his body and then offered up in fervid humility an ' Ave Maria' and a requiem for the departed soul. "I killed the bodies, but not the souls of my enemies, and I observed always the religious exercises which the circumstances required." The bandit's favorite books were "Meditations on the Life of the Holy Virgin" and_ the Bible. "Although a bandit," he declares, "I never neglected any religious duties. Every day 1 said my morning and evening prayers. I prayed for the dead, went to church and confessed many times every year. The abbot of Florinas was wont to lead me into church by the secret passait from his house. Outside the police were watching for me; inside I fulfilled ni} duties to God. I was alone vrith the priest.'' Toln had some queer ideas abo-.v a priest's proper discharge of h: chnrchly duties. The priest who prayet more than three times at mass, he relates, invariably bewitched somebody. "Once in Florinas," goes his story, "i had a bad attack of rheumatism, and J was convinced that I had been bewitched by a priest. I sought help from tl.i Florinas priest, who was an escelle;.-: man. He put on his vestments, and wirij holy water and cross began to exoreisr the evil spirits. The pain ceased almcs: at once, and I had a few weeks of ptac<-.-. later I went to the curare of Ossi. %vL< was supposed to be still more skilled i_ exorcism. He told me to kneel, arci he sprinkled me with holy water. The:: prayed a long time. I went to h:':r three times. The third time the pair was worse than ever- apd then he confessed to me that . ^ad been bewitch ed by another priest, who was mightier than he. Finally 1 obtained relief from the abbot of Ossi, who for 40 days madi. me partake of blessed oil and blesscci bread." Perhaps this childlike faith was what made the Sardinian peasants regard To-with love and veneration. He was always helped and fed by them when he was hard pressed by soldiers or police. Co him hundreds of them gladly paid a ll yiTj^fl] iTITTl M thieves, cutthroats anS robbers. Tliey had implicit confidence in his ability to protect them. At the same time they often refused to pay taxes and were unwilling to ask the police or military to arrest those who plundered them. In his 30 years of bandit life Tolti, despite his religious scruples, killed between 50 and (50 men, robbed hundreds and burned to the ground the buildings on nine great estates. He was ever at war with the authorities of the land, and in the last t«u years of his career devoted himself exclusively to robbing and killing persons holding ohice or standing m the service of the police or military. Misitoorl Adviee to a Po«t. It was some years ago that Algernon Charles Swinburne, in a mournful voica addressed us the query. "What shall be done with all these tears of ours?" We have been very busy since then, and ic is very possible that Algernon has disposed of his stock and doesn't now need our advice, but we are sorry for him and will give it anyway. We would say, in the first place, Algernon, thac the prudent thing to do, if you see no market for your product, is to cease producing ; that is the doctrine that we are now teaching at our agricultural school in Kansas. But we have also a suggestion better than that. It is that if you can manage to weep fresh tears, which you ought to be able to do after a little practice, you come out to the arid region and go into the irrigation business. Even a sale lake would be acceptable during dry weather, aad you might recover some sections with that sort of tear, but the great thought we throw out to you is, either weep fresh tears or quit the business. —Kansas City Times. The Fifth Hoax. He wasn 't Bluebeard nor any other mythological spouse with a taste for murder; he was merely a strict old Quaker preacher who lived a few decades ago an d "who had had four wives. Upon his return home after the ceremony solemnizing his acquisition of a fifth he led the new wife to a certain closet and threw open the door. .Four shawls and four bonnets hung in a row upon the hooks inside. The husband pointed to a fifth hook. "And this, .Rebecca," he said significantly, "is for thee." "No, Jonathan," answered the wifa significantly, "that will be thine."
