PKJssroMT' special Correspondence. TICK PwoniKNT NEW YORK April 11,1855. SECBZTAJW. ^ re you happy enough to have a place to which you can go and find rest when the world and all Its worries seem just a little more than you can bear? I have. It la a quaint little place, and jet it It right in tbe midst of a fashionable neighborhood. It faces a parJc that hae high iroo rails about it, and which can. only ba enjoyed by the children of the rich, and all around are great, big houses, the homes of millionaires. But not all the hurry of the world ever touches that quiet Meeting Houue. The jangle of the car bells is far from It. and far from It, and always it seem* as if the spirit of content rested there and longed to give its blessing to whoever came seeking for that which is good. It means so much to have perfect silence, once in a while. To be all alone and to think out the problem of living without, an interruption from any human being. TO ME ON THAT EASTER MORNING. there seemed no place like it. The churches were beautifully dressed with lillles, the great organs were pealing forth hymns to the glory of God, jet here, whore there was neither flower nor song, tho Holy G-hoat seemed to have descended and all was silence On the window sill a tiny robin sat looking ourlouoly at the quiet congregation and every now and then he pave a melodious song as if to attract the attention of the people near him. And U came to me as i( I heard ilia spirit speaking in the song of the bird, and before me were those who, yesterday, I had seen in the iiesh. First of all, a beautiful woman—bright of eye, quick of wit and lovely to look upon. But, alae! she stood out from all other women as one for whom there could be no redemption—a sinner of the deep • eat dye. A sinner who had sinned be- csuse of love, and then, finding that ihe could not step back, had gone forward and forward, further and further until her life represented sin and sin alone, and she died in it. And on her breast lay two white lillies, bought and brought there by a sister In sin. The preacher who stood beside her dead body to)d of the horrors -of the future, told of frightful punishments and pictured death as a THE receipts at some of the fo urth class post offices are ridiculously small, and it is evident that there is but little excuse for the existence of many of them. It is Bomethingr, however, to bo postmaster, even if there Is no mall to handle. At least many couc try storekeepers appear to think so, aa the amount tbe government pays in some instances would not pay for fuel to beat an office. There are nine offices In Indiana that each show less than $2 of total receipts for the quarter ending December 31, 189-1. A poatofflce named Draper, in Miami county, showed the smallest receipts of any fourth-class postoffice, the total amount for tho last quarter of 1894 being 71 cents.

BRCa.TSoch«»t«r, THE main features of tbe official exercises at the dedication of the Chiokamauga and Chattanooga Na* tlonal Military Park, which occurs on the 19th and 20th of September, have been decided upon by the Secretary of War. The ceremonies will begin on the battlefield of Chlckamauga Sept. 19, and will comprise the formal announcement of the opening of" the park by the War Department, representing the government, two orations by speakers of national prominence, and the proper military display. On the following day exercises in continuation of the dedication, relating' -to the battles of. Lookout Mountain and Missidnary^Ridge, will be held atChat- tacooga with a somewhat similar pro< gram. In case of rain all exercises will take place at Chatta nooga, under cover of adequate capacity, to be provided as a providential measure. The secretary will arrange to have all the armies represented in tho battles, participate in the dedication by setting- apart the night of Sept. 19 to the Union and Confederate armies of tbe Tennessee, and the night of Sept. 20 to the Potomac and Northern Virginia. The regular army will be represented by the Lieutenant General and a rtetach. ment of troops. Tbe Society of the Army of the Cumberland will hold Hi regular annual reunion at Chattanooga thing to be dreaded, and not a good. rest to those who are angel giving weary. THE EOBIN, READING MY sang out in sweet, but low the evening of Sept. 18 preceding the dedication, and to this all official vlai- HEART, tones,; Atd when He appeared, it was not to the saints first of all, but to the woman out of whom He had cast seven devils, and whose scarlet robes were washed whiter than snow," And then there came another picture. A man and a woman who had loved each other, who had believed that life and its joys were all to -them when they were together; who had selfishly enough, found the pleasures of this world sufficient, and who never thought to share their happiness with others, who never knew how to give of their plenty to the poor, who never thought of making easier the weight to those who carried great burdens. But they lived along from day to day simply enjoying, and never dreaming even of the selfishness of thslr life And yesterday, the mai lay cold and still in death. And the .woman knelt beside him and prayed that it might come to her. And, as if it were a dream, I saw her alone for. many years, yet aha had learned, through her grief, how rich might life be, If life meant sharing every joy with another, dividing the sorrow of another and taking the bigger half, and giving the helping hand to whoever might need it. And the robin sang out just this, as' if he knew her daily grief: "And God shall wipe away all tears from our eyes." Then there cime another picture. YOU, WHO ARE A MOTHER, take It close to your heart, that child which you love so much but remember when a gift comes from God it brings a duty. Did this mother do her duty? Did she remember those other little children whose cry goes up eternally, not only for bread, not only for care. bu>. for mother's love. Did she think of the millions of chi'dren all the world over, stretching out their little hands that same one might come and take them, and lead them in the path meant for them? Did she think to clothe the poor, to feed the hungry, and to do her beet, always for these little ones, who are, after all, no master how cruel mother* may be, God's children? No, all that she thought of was her own child. She loved it, she joyed in it, and the counted, not that in all the wide one eO §we«t «nd world, there *u one *o .entirely ton and representative* of th« other ibleiaed. And yesterday, a long white army societies will be invited. f soar! with two white lillies tiea tolt marked her doorway- And she knelt beside her dead baby, and. as in a dream, she saw the little children who are starring, who are suffering who are dying, all around us, acd leading this procession, was her own tiny bloBBom, calling the poorest of them "Brother." And the robin sang clear and loud. "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eye§-, and there shall be no more death- 1 ' Then there was another picture. A WOMAN ALONE. Toiling, striving, day in and day out that death might be kept away from the door; Living a lonely life that meant all work and weariness Unacquainted with a friendly band never seeing a friendly amlle, only knowing that with the rising of the sun work began, and with its setting that it stopped. When the needle was quiet, the -woman was too weary even to pray, hut God- beard the wish and rest came. And there were no bitter tears to wet the ne'edle, and make it drag slowly, no more bitter tears to salt the poor food, only quietness and the beautiful stillness that oornea with the angel of death. And the worker lay there, still and cold, and even in death, there was no friendly hand to make the first hacd- ful of earth fall gently on the poor coffin. But the robin sang with boldnees and clearness, knowing that it was the •truth. "And God shall wipe awav all tears from their eyes; and there shall bs no more death, neither crying." THE YOUNG INVALID'S LONGINGS. And thero came another picture. Young, sweei. 10 look upon, wHh tbat weary look thatooly comes from npvor ceasing pain, was a girl All tbo day long, and all tbe long, long night she suffered. And the years seemed doubled, and life seemed nothing but sorrow and sadness. Those abound her wondered when tha end would be, and yet she bore he- pain &•< only women children can. Sometimes it seemed almost too much. Sometimes she thought of those who were well and strong, who saw the sunshine In, all its glory, not merely a piece ot it through a glass window, and then she wished she were like them. Sometimes it did seem as if for once, she would like to walk over the green fields tbat she had read about. Sometimes It did seem as if she would like to pluck ihe flowers that grew by the wayside, and laugh and dance as merrily aa if there were no such thing as pain. That was always there. She never saw the "green fields, or the gay flowers, or walked a step. And yesterday tbe pain ceased. And DEATH, THE CONQUEROR, STILLED IT. Sleeping with a smile on her face, and with a bunch of spring blossoms .In her hand, there came a vision like a dream, and in it she who had never laughed, was happy and well and strong, and she danced over tbe green fields, and plucked the brlghtnflowers, and all day long sang praUe'a and thanks to Him who died, that she might live. And the note of the robin was sweeter and clearer than ever, and each word was distinct, and he sang, "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither crying, neither shall there be any more pain." Don't you believe it? Sitting alone and quiet this Easter morn, doesn't the spirit speak to you through the bright sunshine, through the flowers and through the birds? My friend, if you don't there is something wrong with you. You are looking out upon life with discontent in your heart, and with malice in your voice. No matter what your creed may be, the eong of the robin must tell you tke story of Ufa and death. Here, where we think that God la best pleased by a pure alienee and a thorough self, examina tlon, followed by a hope to do better, there comes always to me the promise that ia so sweet and so true: "And, behold! Christ is risen from the dead and become the first fruits of them that slept." LOVING THOUGHTS AT EASTER. Sometimea the Bleep is not good, hut always there ia Christ to waken you from this sleep that means indifference, that means unbelief; that means aelfhhnese. Ihe spirit is speaking again and again, and trylrg to rouse you; are you deaf to theOprayer that you may eeek that which is good and let alone all that is wicked? I can't believe it. lean's believe thete is one human creature so bad that there isn't a tender spot in hie heart for fomo one. Believe in something, my friend. Believe in somebody. Don't look at the Easter sunshine and have faith in nothing, and no love towards your fellow creature. There ii so much to. do. and . the work It so near to you. Open your eyea wide to look for it and: when it ia found, work for it as If your life,as it doea, depends Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Govt Report Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE ipon it. If faith.seems to hare gone from you. at least say tbat great prayer, "Help thoii;mine unbelief." ^,Start with » faith in iomebody, a woman or a cbildpand your faith at fi .it like a mustard seed, will grow as a ^'re;it palm tree, and afford rest and r.Jrei-hment to those others who suf- 1-1 red like you. I do not think I a-x> wrong in saying it make* no dlffereree what your oelief in. Toat jou h'.ve faith, that you try to live up tu it. i enough for me, and I believe U l enough for God. He will not aek you, "Were you a Catholic? Were you a Jew? Were you a Methodist? Were you an Episcopalian? Were you a Presbyterian? or were you a Unirerea- list?" No. WHEN TOU STAND BEFORE HIM. He will say: "What have you done for My children who were sick? What have you done for My children *-ho were starving? What have you done for that brother who was weak in the faith? How often have you given s. helping hand where it was needed? I care not how loudly you have prayed. I caro not for tho gifts that were given with a flare of trumpets so tbat nil the world might know, but I do care, and I ask you, as you hope for happiness here, -what have you done for the least of these?" I fear that many a head will droop. Oh! my friends, we squabble over orthodoxy and heterodoxy; wo quarrel over which ie church music, and whether there shall be flowers or not We listen to long sermon, and we give as did tbe Pharisee, and we are spoken of as beiag generous by all men, and yet there ia something lacking. To tne heterodox brother there Is no charity shown; to the doubting sister there is no faith proven by good worta, and to tbe world at larg.e .life is not made so beautiful that it forces the looker-oo to hope for a hereafter. We are all wrong- We lay our little plans of life and call It good. Then the day comes when we see our mistake, and we realize that, without the leaven of the blessed spirit, all thKt we|have done Is worthless. You look at me, and tell me that vou feed the hungry, and yet before jou give the bread you ask if they belong to your church. THE STORY OF EASTER SUNDAY. There is no such thing as your church; there Is God's church, and if you and I live right, and do as near as possible what He would wish, then we become part of it. But in His church, what the other man thinks, if be acts as a Good Samaritan', Is as orthodox as what you think, or what I proclaim. This always seems to me the story of Easter Sunday, and while the bells are ringing all around me, acd I am altting quietly In the Meeting House, once more, I bear the robin song, And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; add there shall be no more death, neither crying, neither shall there be any more pain." And in one heart and epirit saya: "Amen and always araen." And over one' woman there comes the jay and peace at Eastertide, and it seems to her an if tho robin knew that ahe waa BAB. THE WANT COLUMN. 8o»e of the Tragedies of the SomU A4- TertUemeut*. Did yon ever answer an advertisement in the want column and learn after long.days of waiting that you •were not wanted? Did you ever insert a timid "want" yourself and have no other satisfaction than the meager ono of reading- it in print? Then you have no skill to read between the lines of your newspaper, saya Kate Field's Washington. Take any three advertisements for work in a Xew York daily and try to see tbe man or woman it represents: "Wanted—Gentlemen boarders in a private family." I knew a woman who resolved on such a plan, beins 1 tired of dressmaking and thinking'this an easier task. She met with but what few women would have won—success. She had no lack of boarders, but after a few months' trial she decided, with a very weary smile, that of tbe two horrors, dressmaking was the least to be dreaded. Read the next: "Wanted—A few more music scholars." If 1 should guess at the number of answers to this L would say none at all; and here, again, even success would mean, to all but a few, defeat. Of music it is true more than of any other kind of instruction, that the teacher must be born; bnt I imagine that this teacher who needs scholars is not born, she is made by circumstances- If she loves music, she is tortured by the sound of the dear old piano played by careless little fingers. I am so very sorry for this one that I am jrlad to turn away. In another "A young man of twenty- three wants a position to do anything." Is it possible that there ia an; man who has reached the age of twenty-three and learned no more about the world? Who would dare to employ a man of men wide ability? This is even more sad than the other,two, for the trouble thia time is in the man himself. What these three advertisements reveal is aa utter lack of practical knowledge an* of how to make one's way in the world, acd the fault is with the parents. A man who gives his children absolutely no means of support is more cruel than the man who leaves his little one todifr- iu tho street. It is the fashion in these days to bring up one's sons and daughters in luxury, accustom them to the- thought that "what is will always be," and, at the first hint of misfortune, to- commit suicide and leave them more*ignorant of how to earn their own bread than the little girl who tries to- sell you paper flowers. A man recently received eighty answers to a single advertisement for a. tj-pevrriter! Yet at this moment there- are thousands learning to use a typewriter and actually expecting to get a position at once. If Christ were here-He might ask again: "Can ye not discern the signs of the times?" What tbe "want" column preaches is very plain—that our young: men and women must be taught to do what the- world wants, and unless they learn. how they uro fit for nothing- but to figure as object-lessons in tho "wiint" column of some newspaper.
