N all ages of the •world It has been customary to celebrate Joyful events by festivity. T h a signing of treaties, the proclamation of peace, the Inaug- 'uratlon -of Presidents, the coronation of kings, the Christmas, the mar- rtage. However much on other days of year our table may have stinted on Thanksgiving Day there laust be something bounteous. And all 'i !he comfortable homes of Christendom !}$ve at some time celebrated Joyful events by banquet and festivity. Some•'•--'. thing lias happened on the old homestead greater than anything that has *ver happened before. A favorite son •Whom the world supposed would be. coine a vagabond and outlaw forever has got tired of eight-seeing and has returned to his father's house. The world said he would never come back. The old man always said his son would come back. He has been looking for ; ^ him day after day and year after year. ..-• / He knew ho would come back. Now having returned to his father's house the father proclaims celebration. There Is In the paddock a calf that has been kept up and fed to utmost capacity, so $s to be ready for some occasion ol Joy that might come along. Ah! there never would be a grander day on the old itomestead than this day. Let tho Irutchers do their work, and the housekeepers bring to the table the smoking meat The musicians will take their places, and the gay groups will move up and down the floor. All the friends and neighbors are gathered In and an extra ' supply Is sent out to the table of the servants. The father presides at- tho _. Cable and says grace, and thanks God .that his long-absent boy is home again. Oh! h'ow they have, missed him, how glad they are to have him back. One brother stands pointing at the back.door and says, "This is a great ado about 1 nothing; this bad boy should have been chastised Instead of greeted; veal Is too good for him!" But the lather says, "Nothing is too good, noth- •Ing Is good enough." There sits the young man, glad at the hearty recep- ,t}on, but a shadow .of sorrow flitting across his brow at the remembrance of the trouble he had Been. All ready now. Let the "covers lift. Music. Ha twos dead and he is alive again! He •was lost and he is found! By such bold Imagery, does the Bible set forth the merry-making when a soul comes home to GodI . ) First ot all, there is the new convert's Joy. It is no tame thing to become a Christian. The most tremen- . , dons moment In a man's life is when ho surrenders himself to God. The grandest ,t!me on the father's homestead ia •when the boy comes back. Among the great throng who in the parlors of our church'professed Christ one night was t a young man who next morning rang my doorbell and said: "Sir, I cannot .contain myself with the Joy I feel; 1 came here this morning to express it; I have foun'" more Joy in five minutes in serving God than in all the years of . ' my prodigality, and I came to say eo." You have seen/ perhaps, a man running for his temporal liberty arid the officers of the law after him, and you ' - _ paw him escape, or afterward you heai 'the. Judge had pardoned him, and how gteat was the glee of that rescued man; hut It is a very tame thing that compared with the running for one's everlasting life, the terrors of the law after ifyim, and Christ coming in to pardon and bless and rescue and save. You remember John Bunyan in his great story tells how the pilgrim put his fingers to his ears, and ran, cry• Ing: "Life, life, eternal life!" A poor car driver some time ago, after yeara having had to struggle to support hia ' , family, suddenly was informed that a large Inheritance was bis, and there . was & Joy amounting to bewilderment; , but that is a small thing compared with the experience of one .when ha' has put in his bauds the title, deed to the Joys, the raptures, the splendors of, •, heaven, and he can truly say, "Its man- ;aloo8 are mind, its temples are mine, its songs are mine, its God is mine!" Oh, it IB no tame thing to become a Christian. It Is a merry-making. It ' is the Wiling of the fatted calf. It is a Jubilee. You know,;the Bible never, compares it to a funeral, but -always compares it to something delightful. It Is more apt to be compared to" a ban- <auet than anything else. It is com* fcared in the Bible to water, bright, fi*shi»g water, to the morning, roseate, fireworked. mountain transfigured tmorning. 1 wlah I could today take all * the Bible expressions about pardon, V<xice, and life, and comfort, and hope, *nd heaven, and twist them into one garland and put it on the brow of the humblest child of God Jii thla assem- Iblage, and cry: "Wear it, wear Jt now, it forever; eon of God, daughter of Lord God Almighty." Oh, -the Joy bf the new convert, Oh, the gladness ef the Christian service. You have sometimes a man in'a religious get up and give ftia experl- teaee. Well, Paul gave his experience, arees 1», the pjr«seaee of two s, the fihareh on earth aad the la heaven, a»d be said: "Now 4fcj* is my experience; (sorrowful, yet ir^Joisiag—p*Ksr» - yft, *F,-, ,H r~,Ti «rr-h j-. ,»n ' • f •>, »••• t*. ^H 1 * I, "s'rtf'" 1 I ffvn.l t top T ^rrl I hayo never bar] any pain ptcept sin." Then they said to him, "Would yon liks to send a message to yonr friends?" "Yes, I would; tell them that only last night tho love of Jesus came rushing into ray eonl like the surges of the sea, and I had to cry out, 'Stop, Lord, it is enough; stop, Lord, enough!'" Oh, the Joys of this Christian 'religion. Just pass over from those tame Joys in which you are Indulging. Joys of t8's world, into the raptures of the gospel. The world cannot satisfy you; yon have found that 6ut. Alexander, longing for other worlds to conquer, and yet drowned in his own bottle; Byron whipped by disquietudes around the world; Voltaire cursing his own soul while all the streets of Paris were applauding him; Henry VIII. consuming with hatred against poor Thotrias a Socket—all illustrations of the fact that this world cannot make a man happy. The very man who poisoned the pommel of the saddle on which Queen Elizabeth rode shouted in the street, "God save the Queen!" One moment the world applauds, and the next moment the world anathematizes. Oh, come over into this greater Joy, this sublime solace, this magnificent beatitude. The night after the battle ft Shlloh, and there were thousands of wounded on the fleld, and the am'bu- lances had not come, one Christian soldier lying there " a-dying under the starlight, be^an to sing: "There is a land of pure delight," And when he came to the next line there were scores of voices singing: "Where saints immortal reign." The sbng > was caught up all through the field among the wounded until it was said there were at least 10,000 wounded men uniting their voices as they came to the vetee: , "There everlasting Spring abides ': And never-withering flowers; TIs but a narrow stream divides" This heavenly land from ours." At the opening of the Exposl ; in New. Orleans I saw a Mexican l. -it, and he played the solo, and then afterward the .eight or ten bands of music, accompanied by the great organ, came in; but the sound of that one flute as compared with all the orchestras was greater than all the combined Joy of the universe when compared with the resounding heart of Almighty God. For ten years a father went three times a day to the depot. His son went off in aggravating clrcumstnces, but the father said: "He' will come back." The strain was too much and his mind parted, and three times a day the father went. In the early morning he watched the train, its arrival, the stepping out of the passengers, and then the departure of the train. At noon he was there again watching the advance of the train, watching the departure! At night he was there again, watching the coming, watching the going, for ten years. He was sure his .son would come back. God has been watching and waiting for some of you, my brothers, ten years, twenfcy years, thirty years, forty years, perhaps fifty years, waiting, waiting, watching, watching, and if now the prodigal should come home, what 'a scene'of gladness and festivity, and how the great^Father's heart would rejoice at your coming home. You will come, some of you, will you not? You will, you will. . I notice, also, that when a prodigal comes home there is the Joy of the ministers of .religion. Oh, it is a' grand thing to preach this gospel. I know there has been _a_great__deal said about the trials, and the hardships of the Christian ministry. I wish somebody would write a good, rousing book about the Joys of the Christian ministry. Since I entered the profession, I have seen more of the goodness of God than I will be celebrate^in all eternity. I know some boast about their equilibrium, and they do not rise Into enthusiasm, and they do not break down with emotion; but I confess to you -plainly that when I see a man coming to God and giving up his sin I feel in body, mind and soul a transport When I see a man bound hand and foot in evil habit emancipated, I rejoice over It as though It were my emancipation. : When in one communion service such throngs of young and old stood up'and in the presence of heaven and earth and hell attested their allegiance to Jesus Christ, I felt a Joy something akin to that which the apostle describes when he says: "Whether In the bodj^ I cannot tellj God knoweth." Oh, have not ministers a right to rejoice when a prodigal comes home? 'They blew the toumpet, and ought they not be glad ot the gathering of the host? They pointed to the full supply, and ought they not to rejoice when thirsty uouls plunge as the hart for the , water brooks? They came forth, sayings "All things are now ready"—ought they not to rejoice when the prodigal sits down at the banquet? Life insurance men will tell you that ministers of religion, as a class, live longer than any other. It is the statistics of all those whp calculate uppn human longevity that ministers of religion, as a'Class, live longer than any other, Why is it? There is more draft upon the nervous system than in any other profession, and their toil is most exhausting. I have seen ministers kept on miserable stipends by parsimonious congregations who wondered at the dullness of the sermon when the men of God were perplexed almost to death by questions pf livelihood and had not enough nutritious food to keep any fire in their temperament. No fuej, no fire, | have sometimes seen the inside of the , of many of the American clergy- saeo, eerar accepting thsir hospitality »e tteey eftsmot- aJford it; BW,t I mm iiuw strujgglfi m with m\~ Fn' -.t»T»r}, ~\~h<~y "iva ?n s "Thank you fi.r th" In^t r-m tmtil it eamn we had not any ment !n GUT houfie fof one year, and all last winter, aithoxigh it was ft severe -winter, our children wore their Bummer clothfis." And these men of God I find in different parts of the land struggling against annoyance and exasperations innumerable; Some of them week after week entertaining agents wHo have maps or lightning rods to sell, fc.n.d submitting themselves to all styles of annoyance, and yet without -conv plaint and cheerful of eoul. How do you account for the fact that these life insurance men tell us that ministers, as ft class, live longer than any o£her? It is because of the Joy of their -work; the Joy of the harvest fleld, the Joy of greeting prodigals home to their Father's house. Oh, we are In sympathy with all Innocent hilarities. We can enjoy a hearty song and we can be mer*, ry with the znerriest; but tHose of ua who have tolled in the service are ready to testify that all these Joys are tame compared with the satisfaction of seeing men enter the kingdom of God. The great eras of every ministry are the outpourings of the Holy Ghost, and I thank God I have seen sixteen oi them. Thank God. thank Godl "•".""* * Look, look! There Is Christ. Cuyp painted him for earthly galleries, and Correggio and Tintoretto and Benjamin West and Doro painted him for earthly galleries, but all those pictures are. eclipsed by'this masterpiece'of heaven. Christ! Christ! There is Paul, the hero of the Sanhedrim, and of Agrlppa's 'court room, and of Mars Hill, and of Nero's infamy, shaking his chained fist in the very face of teeth-chattering royalty. Here is Joshua, the fighter of Bethoron and Gideon, the man that postponed sundown". And here Is Vashti, the profligacy of the Persian court unable to remove her veil..of modesty 'or rend It, or lift it. And along the corridors of this plctufe~gallery I find other great heroes and heroines—David ,with, his harp, and Mirlam~wlth-the cymbals, and Zecharlah with the scroll, and St. John with the seven vials, and the resurrection angel with tho trumpet. On further in the corridors, see the faces of our loved ones, the' cough gone from the throat, the wanness gone from the cheek, the weariness gone from the limbs, the languor gone from the eye. Let us go up and greet them. Let us go up and embrace them. Let us go up and live with them* Wo will! we will! . , Once more I remark, that when the prodigal gets back tho inhabitants of heaven keep festal. I am very certain of it. If you have never seen a telegraph chart you have no Idea how many cities are connected together, and how many lands. Nearly all the neighborhoods of the earth seem reticulated, and news flies from city to city, and from continent to continent. But more rapidly go the tidings > from earth to heaven, and when a prodigal returns, it is announced before the throne of God. And if these souls now present should enter the kingdom there would be some one in 1 the heavenly kingdom' to say, "That's my father," "That's my mother," "That's my son," "That's, the one I used to pray for," "That's the one for whom I wept so many, tears," and one soul would say, "Hosanna!" and another would say, "Hallelujah!" • -• >• Pleased with the news, the saints below '• In songo their tongues employ; Beyond the skies the tidings go, And heaven is filled with 'joy. Nor angels can their Joy contain, But kindle with new fire; The sinner lost is found, they sing, *, • And strike the sounding lyre. From this hilltop I catch a glimpse of those hilltops where all sorrow and sighing' shall be done away. Ob, that God would make that world to us a reality. Faith In that world helped old Dr. Tyng when he stood by the casket Of bis dead'son whose arm had been torn off in the threshing machine, death ensuing, and.Dr. Tyng, finite composure, preached the funeral sermon of his own beloved son. Faith in that world Helped Martin Luther without one tear to put away in death his. favorite child. Faith in that, world, helped the dying woman to see on the sky the letter "W," and they asked her what she supposed that letter "W", on the sky meant. "Oh," she said, "don't you know? 'W' stands for 'Welcome.'" Oh, heaven swing "open thy gates. Oh, heaven, roll upon us some of the sunshine anthems. Ob, heaven, flash upon us the vision of thy .luster. An old writer tells us of a ship coming from India to France. The crew was made up of French sailors who had been long from home, and as the ship; came along the coast of-France/ the men skipped the deck with glee, and they pointei} to the spires of the churches 'where they once worshiped and to the hllla where they had played in boyhood. ' But when the ship came Into port, and these sailors saw lather and mother and wife and loved ones on the wharf, they sprang" ashore and rushed up the banks into the city, and the eaptain had to get another crew to bring the ship to her moorings. So heaven will after a while cpme BO fully in sight we can see its towers, its mansions, its hills, and as we go Into port and our loved ones shall call from that shining shore and speak our names we will spring to the beach, leaving this old ship of a world to be managed by another crew, our rough yoyagfng of the seas ended forever. .

I am aware of the fact that the so- called "chicken business" In any Rl| of its several branches of culture Is looked upon by your-average citizen aa of minor Importance, BO minor as to be unworthy of .consideration, but by women and children, and not by them if they could find aught fele* to do. :i am aware that In coming before your honorable body with a paper devoted to this branch of the world's Industry I may be deemed t to have gone daft, without having far to go, but Buretly poultry belongs to the farm as certainly aa does (fruit of tree or honey of hive and bee. The poultry mania of 1847 had Us origin In the Importation from the far east into England and America of the Cochin breed. Her majesty, It Is true, exhibited so-called Cochins In 1843, but they were so different in form and character from later arrlvols as to be't unworthy the name. Thl.. mania lasted seven years without apparent diminution. ,As much aa 100 guineas was often paid for a single cock. Nearly $500 for a single domestic fowl was considered a round price, to be sure, while for a-pen, consisting of five females and one male, it was a common price. All England had the "hen fever," Mr. Wright informs us. At the same time that England and this country were Oochined there was found in a ship from ln<fla In New York city, by one Mr. Knox, another typo of fowl altogether different from the Cochin, and were termed Brahmas, or short- legged Chlttagongs, The Chlttagong had been winning laurels under another name for several years, and were known by many as < Shanghais. The Knox birds were bred by Chamberlain, Cornish, Smlth-and Chllds ; unUl 1857, when the Shanghais becairie unfashionable among.- those -early-fanclers.-and the short-legged Brahma Pootra usurped th'e fleld. Not until after the war was begun the systematic breeding of fowls in America from a standpoint or fancy point of "view. Mr. Williams, of Massachusetts had "gone to the front," leaving his birds to be scattered far and near. When he returned 'h& began to buy up as much of his old favorite stock as he could. From 1866 to 1868 may termed the Initiatory years of American fancy fowls.—S. L. Roberts. Breeders Should Advertise.. . There is no better way for breeders of pure-bred'live stock to show to'the world their faith In Uw enterprise they are engaged In than' by continuing to call attention to what they have to sell through the advertising columns of the -live stock and agricultural papers, says National Stockman. It Is hot strange that those unacquainted with the merits of the .different breeds should think lightly:of them If those who are most interested neglect to keep possible buyers .. posted aa to where purchases can be made, and the worth of their particular .strains of blood.. Under the present financial depression aa great results from advertising possibly may not be obtained as when times are good and money, plentiful, but moderate returns now.might be. of more benefit to the' advertiser than an extraordinary amount of business under more favorable circumstances. In advertising how at least one result ia certain: You convince the public that you have faith enough In your business to stand to it under all circumstaaces. _Thi£^ alone__may..'..he 1 . worth mere .than the expense connected with it. If you. exx>ec$ othors to Join you In an enterprise you must impress them with the idea thAt you have faith, in it yourself. It wlfl pay well to advertise live stock if you have the right kind to sell and want to create customers among the best farmers and breeders. The fact that but comparatively few breeders are pushing their business through the advertising columns of the papers makes the possibilities of returns all the better. '". , Fattening" Cattle.—For fattening cattle I find the best results to bo obtained are by feeding a mixture of; Wheat bran, two bushels; middlings, one bushel; corn meal, two bushels, and oil meal one-half bushel This mixture will give nearly as good results Without the middlings as with them. Always give rough .feed in connection* with rations like the above. 1 The amount to be fed must be governed entirely by good Judgment. Always feed lightly at first and increase gradually until the animals are getting all they can eat.but never give them more than they will eat up cleans* Half of the secret in feeding is to have your animals come into the stables hungry at feeding time. I mean With good, healthy appetites, not starved.—Ex. Afraid of Horses.—Dr, Waller, a prospector in Alaska,, recently took some horses up with him from Washington. At the, first Indian village the eight of the horses drove all the dogs howling into the woods. The children dropped their rude playthings &nd tied, crying, into the huts. The men and women stood their ground, although in open-eyed -wonder. After much inducement they were finally prevaJJed upon to approach the horses, and their .wonder knew no bounds, No amount of persuasion could induce tfiem to mo-uat. They were the first horsea they had ever seen. Premium Butter.—Preniium butfer is now made at any- season of the year, the secret oi success lying In fresh cows, good food and the skill of the sasker. Whiter butter 'has really the advantage over summer butter, &|1 its T.lw noiaber of women students at Oxford is JtKnr?nsiD*f rapidly and tho mingling of girls with men on colfe glate streets Is eaid to give a charming touch to tho appearance of the old city tnaoh remarked by visitors, says an exchange. There are three women colleges at-Oxford, h&rdly so famwus as the Glrton and Newnh&m of Cambridge but ace&Hjplteh!n& work Just as important-SomervillQ hall, Laxly Margarel's and Bt Hugh's. Somer villa hall to an old manor house, pur- caiased and improved (for its present eite as a "fcaJl of residence?" with only eight stud«n.ts, but now has a yearly average of seventy, the number gradually Increasing as t-he university authorities threw open their Examinations one by on« to women on the same terms as men. The college IB described as A picturesque building with, spacious dining-room, large, comfortable drawing-room—or common room aa the girls prefer to call It—tennis courts and shady lawns. It has also a very fine gymnasium, a hockey fleld and its own boats oh the river. Lady Margaret's is presided over by Miss iWtordswiorth, a gray-haired, sweet- faced woman, much loved by her students, several of whom have reached distinction In various directions. vMlss Hogarth, one of Lady Margaret's alumni, is head of the lady clerks of the Bank of England and assists W. L. Courtney on the Fortnightly Review. Another, Mlsa Margaret Benson, daughter of .the late archbishop of! Canterbury, is the author of the recently published novel, "Subject to Vanity." St. Hugh's hall .was established for girls- who wished to enjoy the advan- tagee of Oxford but who could not afford i the Bomewlhat expensive rates of Somervllle and Lady Margaret's and are -content, with plainer living. Tho Association for Promoting the. Education of Women, in .Oxford - has done much for women students by, acting as an Intermediary between them and the the authorities and Inducing the majority of the professors to admit, women to their classes. This, as a rule, is a matter which each professor may determine for himself and the decision consequently depends upon individual views of the "woman question." 8BQAN.TINI. ITALIAN FAINTER. Had Very Little Honor In HU Own Country. , Born at Arco,. in Trent, In 1858, Se- gantdnl's first Impressions were of the mountains. His earliest experiences were of the saddest, the child moving from Arco to Trent, then for"a while to Milan and back to Arco again until, the fortunes of his ;.family growing harder, he was sent to work on a farm, saye Scribner's. The -world of art opened up for him In the studdo of the Milanese • Tettajtamanzl, a painter of church banners,and drop curtains; and bis friends delight in telling how, when Ms master, who thought himself, an artist of the rarest merit, asked him, "What wouldflt tiiou 'do, my friend, If flhou wert an artist like me?" the little fellow straightway blurted out: "I? I /would -throw myself out of the window," which answer brought his apprenticeship to,a eudden end. Aiter- ward Segantini distinguished himself by' "winning, prizes at the Milan school Ot fine arts, the Brera academy. "However, those early days of the artist in Che capital of - Lomibardy,- where be supported himself while studying- by giving lessons and painting signs and pictorial advertisements, were full of pathetic experiences and. iardflhips, which JhiBJ sturdy,uncom? jroniifiing, intensely personal attitude x>ward art tended to increase. He was always 'blamed by his compatriots tor what precisely,gives (him his place :n the ©yes .of Ifhe foreign public—his individuality; and until great honors were bestowed upon him in Holland, Prance, Germany and England* his •wprks were misunderstood, unjustly' n-eated and pointed out aa .examples of what Italian painters would oomo should they abandon the honored traditions of their national 'school. Duping the London Zoo. An audacious knave has succeeded, in mposjag upon the directors of the Zoo, Regent'a Park, a. fictitious "horned viper"—men who are supposed to be familiar with all the great snake family, ,n a guejrded way. The cerastes viper, t may be explained, is distinguished over other deadly crawling things by a pair of horns over each eye, not of any gr«at sire,, but „ sufficiently protuberant to show that the reptile is no common snake. The audacious im- ter appears to have cut two little slts over tihe eyes~and inserted a couple of Bpines/'Crom a hedgehog probably. R.would be a risky job, for cerastes Is a gentleman of irritable temper, and not safely handled; With a writhing snake on accident may easily occur.
