Att&r thts *-~- Knth 3 !a *&« and If er Msj» 3. J if? o'l^n pftMTtfl to be a mfr<* wh*»r8 the STiece^tul player pulls down a!! the other tn-en into his own lap. Let suspicion arf«e about ft, man's cTiaracteri and he becomes like a bank In a panic, and all the Imputations rash on him and break down In a day that character which in 'flue time would hare had strength to defend' Itself. There are reputations that hare been. half a century In building, which go down under one push, as a vast temple Is consumed by the touch of a sulphur- ous match. A hog can uproot a century-plant. •-*- • :~~.— ^"~ In this world, so full of heartless- HE time that Ruth and Naomi arrived at* Bethlehem ia harvest time. It was the custom when a sheaf fell from a load In the harvest field for ;tfis' reapers to—refuse, to gather it ^ tip; that was to be j ness and hypocrisy, how thrilling it is left lor the poor who might happen to come along that •way., If there were handfuls of grain scattered across the field after the main harvest had been reaped, instead of raking it, as farmers do now, it was, by the cust6m of the land, left In its place, so that the poor coming along that way might glean it, and get their bread. But, you say, "What Is the use of all .these harvest fields to Ruth and Naomi? Naomi Is too old and feeble to go out and toll in the sun; and can you expect that Ruth, the young and the beautiful, should tan her cheeks and blister her hands in the harvest field? Boaz owns a large farm, and he goes out to see the reapers gather in the grain. Coming there, right behind the swarthy, sun-browned re'apers, he beholds a beautiful woman gleaning— a woman more fit to bend to a harp or sit upon a throne than to stoop among .the Bheaves: Ah, that was an eventful day! . It was'lovo at first sight. Boaz forms an attachment for the womanly gleaner— an attachment 'full of undying interest to. the church of God In all ages; while Ruth, with an ephah, or nearly a bushel of barley, goesjiome to-Naom i-to-tcll-her-o t4he_successes_ -who left her native land of Moab in ^darkness, and traveled through an un• .dying affection for her mottier-in-law,, is in tho harvest field of Boaz,' is affl- .. anced to one ol tho- best families in - Judah, and Ijecomes in after time; tho -ancestress of Jesus Christ, the Lord of ;slory! Out of eo dark a night did there ever .dawn so bright a morn- •ing? . -. ,'.-...'. ' •'.... I learn, in the first place, from this subject, how trouble develops character. It waa bereavement, poverty -and exile , that developed, illustrated, and announced to all ages the sublimity of , Ruth's character.. That is a very un' fortunate man who has no trouble. , It •was sorrow that made John Bunyan the better dreamer, and Doctor Young the better poet, and O'Connell the better orator, and Bishop Hall the better preacher, and Havelock the better soldier, and Kitto. the better encyclopae- dist, and Ruth the better daughter-in- law. I once asked an aged man In regard to his pastor, who was a very brilliant inan,--Why -is -it that_your_ pastor, ..so pery_ brilliant, seems to- have so little to find some friend as faithful in days of adversity as In days of prosperity? David had such a friend in Hushal; the Jews had such & friend in Mordecal, who never forgot their cause; Paul had such a friend In Oneslphorus, who visited him In jail; Christ had such in the Marys, who adhered to Him on the Cross; Naomi had such a one in Ruth, who cried out, "Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee, for whither thou goest* I will go; and whither thou lodgeat I will lodge; thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God; where thou diest will I die, and there will I he buried; the Jx>rd do so to me, and more also, if aught but death part thee and me." Again, I learn from this subject that paths which open in hardship and darkness often come out in places of joy. Wlhen Ruth started from Moab toward Jerusalem, to go along with her mother-in-law, I suppose the people said: "Oh, what a foolish creature to go away from her father's house, to go off with a poor old woman toward the land of JudaJh! They won't'live to get across the desert. They will be drowned in the sea, or the jackals of tie wilderness will destroy them." It was a very dark morning when Ruth started off with Naomi: Jbut_behold_her_in_niy_ "Text" in the harvest field of Boaz, to WaTHanced to one of tho lords of the" land, and become one of the grandmothers of Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. And BO it often is that a path which often starts very darkly ends very brightly. > When you started out for heaven, oh, dark was the hour of conviction— how Sinai thundered, and • devils tormented, and the darkness thickened! All the sins of your life pounced upon you, and. it was the darkest hour you ever saw when you first found out your sins. After awhile you went into the harvest-field of God's mercy: you began to glean in the fields of divine promise, and you had more sheaves than you could carry, .as the voice of God , addressed you, saying; "Bl'essed is the man whose transgressions are forgiven and whose slnSyare covered." A very dark starting in conviction, a very bright ending in the pardon 'and the hope and the triumph of the Gospel! , ..-•-.-• ' • •. . So, very often in our worldly busi- ness'or in our spiritual career, we start oft on a very dark path. We must go. The flesh may ^shrink back, but thero is a'voice within, or a voice from above, T.-hfrh ffh* h«4 •written, some on« said to her: "How do you find time to attend to all th«*8 tb-tegB?" "Oh," &he replied, "these are not tJie things I am proud of. My chief boast Is Iti tfoe fact that I have seven- tees trades, by any one of trtilch I could make a livelihood If necessary." And If IU eeculftr spheres there Is iw much to be done, in spiritual work how vast the field! How many dying all around about us without one *word of comfort! We want more AWgalls, more Han- na3ra, more Rebeccas, more Marys^ more Deborahs consecrated—body, mind and soul, to the Lord who bought therm. Once more I learn from my subject the value of gleaning. Ruth going Into that harvest field might hav.e said: "There Is a straw, and there Is a straw, but what Is a straw? I can't get any barley for myself or my mother-in-law out of .these separate straws." Not so said beautiful Ruth. She gathered two straws, and s!he put them together, and more straws, until she got enough to make a sheaf. Putting that down, she went and gathered more straws', until she had another sheaf, and another, and another, and another, and then she Txrougtit them altogether, and she threshed, them out, and she had an ephah of barley, nigh a bushel. Oh, that we might all be gleaners! Ellhu Burritt learned many thlngn while toiling in a blacksmith's chop. A'bercromble, the world-renowned philosopher, was a philosopher in Scotland, and he got his philosophy; or the chief part of it, wthile, as a physician, he was waiting for the door of the sick, room to open. Yet how many thero are In this day who say they are so bugy they have no time for mental or spiritual Improvement; the great duties of life cross the field like strong reapers, and carry oft all the. hours, and there is pnly here and there a fragment_loft, thatJsjipt worth_glean-. ing. ihT~my "friends, you could go -into-thtHnislcst-day-and-bUBlest-week-of;- your life and find golden, opportunities, which,, gathered, might at last make a whole sheaf for the Lord's garner. It "is the stray opportunities and tho stray privileges- which, taken up and bound together and beaten out, will at last fill you with much 'joy. There are a fow moments left worth the gleaning. Now, Ruth to the field! May,each .one have a measure full' and running over! Oh, you gleaners, to'the field! And if there be in your household an cged one or a sick relative that is not strong enough to come forth and toil in this field, then 1 let Ruth take home to feeble Naomi this sheaf of gleaning: "He 1£at goeth forth and wcepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again-with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him." May the Lord God of Ruth and Naomi be, our portion forever! , s 'nifl'nttiem B*ii s <H^f Ts BP Rtpro- e?d at OH SCALE OF ONE«S!XTH, heart and tenderness in his sermons?" "Well," he replied, "the reason is, our pastor has never had any trouble. When misfortune comes upon him his .etyle -will be* different." After a while the Lord took a child out of the pastor's house; and though the preacher •was just as brilliant as he was before, oh, the warmth, the tenderness of his discourses! The fact is, that trouble J,a a great educator. You see sometimes a musician eit down at an Instrument and his execution is cold and formal and-unfeeling,- The reasonJs that all 'his life ha has been prospered. But let misfortune .or bereavement come to that man,;and he sits down to the in- Bthimeilt,, and you discover the pathos in the first sweep of the keys. Misfortunes and trials are great ed- ucatora. , A young doctor comes into a sick room where -there ia a dying child. Perhaps he is very rough in Ma prescription, and very rough in his manner,'and rough in the feeling of the pulse, and rough in his answer to the mother's anxious question; .but years rolj. on, and there has been one dead in bis owu house; and now he comes into the alck room, and with tearful eye he leaks at the dying child, and be cays. "Qh, how thia reminds me of my CbarlW Trouble, the great educator.

We have to ford the river, we have to climb tfho mountain, we 'have to storm the castle; but, blessed be God, the day of rest and reward will come. On the tip-top of the captured battlements we will about the victory; if not in this world, then in that world-'where- thero~ Is7~h6~ga.ll to drink, no burdens to «arry, no battles to fight How do I kjlw it? Know it! I know it because Ijpd says so: "They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more, neither shall the sun light on them, nor any -heat, for the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall lead them to living fountains 'of water, and God shall wipe all tears from their eyes." It was very hard for Noah to endure the scoflinB of tho people in big day, while he was trying'to build the ark, and was every morning quizzed about •his old boat that would never be of any practical use; but when the deluge came, and the tops of the mountains disappeared like the backs of sea monsters, and the elements,-lashed up in fury, clapped their bands 'over .a drowned wdrld, then Noah In the ark rejoiced in his own safety and in the safety of his family, and looked out on the wreck of a ruined earth. Christ, Abounded of persecutors, denied a pillow, worse maltreated than the thieves on either side of the cross, human hate smacking its lips in satisfaction after it had been draining his last drop of blood, the sheeted dead bursting from the sepulchres at his crucifixion, Tell me, O Gethsemane and Golgotha, were there ever darker times than those? Like the booming of the midnight se^i against the rock, the surges of Christ's anguish beat against the gates of eternity, to be echoed back by all the thrones of heaven arid all the' dungeons of hell. But the day. of reward cpmes for Christ; all the pomp and dominion of this world are to be hung on hia throne, crowned heads are to bow before him on whose uead are many crowns, and all the celestial worship Is to come up at bis feet, like the humming of the forest, like the rushing of tie waters, like the thundering of the seas, whH6 all "leaver, rising ou their thrones, beat time with, their sceptres: "Hallelujah, for thq Lord <>od omnipotent reigneth." song of love, now low aad far, JUIIK sliali Kwsll from star One of the most useful of insects is, owing to tho ; ignorance, of. the public, forever being killed. -It Is known as the'dragon-fly, the needle-case and the devil's darning-needle. Says a writer ItsJarval state It. subsists almost entirely on those small squirming threads which can be -seen darting about in any still water, and which hatch out. into sweet-singing mosquito. As soon as the dragoon L fly leaves its watery nursing-ground, and climbing some friendly reed, throws away the old shell and flies away, it--is helping man again. Its quarry now is the house-fly. Not long ago the writer sa\y one of these insects knocked down in a veranda, where -it had 'been dohig yeoman's service, and .the chlldr<f^and women—Beemed"dellghted^although they shrank back from the poor.wound- ed dragon-fly. They all thought It had an awful sting at the end of its long body; a cruel injustice. When the writer took the'insect up there was general wonderment, which \vas Increased when a captured fly was offered It and it ate greedily. The boys of the household will never harm a dragon-fly again. Quito u Difference, All disciples of Izaak Walton will appreciate the story .which is going the rounds, concerning Mr. Andrew Lang, the English critic and essayist. An exchange publishes the anecdote which one-of Mr. Lang's literary friends tells: It happened fo me to spend a few days last summer in an English village. Having noticed a pleasant river which seemed to promise'excellent fishing, I spoke of it to my landlady. "Oh yes sir," she said, "there Is very good fishing here—many people come here for fishing." "What kind of people come here?" I asked. "Literary gentlemen come here very often, sir. We ha'd Mr Andrew Lang staying . here," "Oh really! does he fish? Is he a good fish erman?" "Yes, sir, he .fishes beautifully." "Really! does he catch much?' "Oh no, .sir, he never catches anything but he fishes beautifully," A Characteristic Iteply. The incorruptibility of General Walk er, late president of the Massachuaett! Institute of Technology, was. above al suspicion, A characteristic anecdote is told of him by J. J. Spencer in the Review of Reviews: At one time/when General Walker held a government po sitlon, a place shared in a measure by another, be was ^ approached with th suggestion that,' since the whole .de partmeut was under their control, bj working iu harmony they could hav whatever they desired.

"* While it Is Important, In the general view, that all our people should participate in the mutual benefits of this occasion. It Is of peculiar importance and propriety that Illinois and her.people should feel and manifest especial inter* est. .The pioneer settlement of-Illinois was nearly all In Its southern half, long before steam had opened the way for Immigration from the northeast, and a very large proportion of the early, set- .tlera of this state had learned their earlier lessons In the development of American commonwealths among the hills an'd valleys of Tennessee. 'Among them the names of John Sevier was little, less familiar than'the names of Hamilton and Madison, and other of the earlier generation of American state builders. : For thla commemoration Tennessee has made elaborate preparation. A large and beautiful area," lying within two miles of the state capital, has been •elected and appropriately laid out and decorated, keeping In view, so far as the scale of the whole rendered practicable, the Invaluable experience gained In Chicago In 1892 and 1893. Nashville Itself Is easily accessible from all directions, ample means for,comfortable access to the grounds have been assured, and munificent provision has • been made of tasteful and convenient struct-, ures for all the purposes of the occasion, These structure^ embrace the Administration, -Woman's,- Commerce, Minerals and Forestry, Transportation, Machinery, Horticulture, History, Children's, Negro and Live Stock buildings, and ,a greatV auditorium for general purposes.'

The commission organized by select- Ing the following officers: President^ Ferdinand W. Peck; vice presidents,. Adlal E. Stevenson, Alexander H. Rev-r ell, Charles P.. Hitch, N. E. Worthlng- ton; treasurer, William P. rialllday; Secretary'Robert J. Thompson; general counsel, Richard S, Tuthill; art commissioner, JR.

The history of the development of the modern industrial, commercial, and art exposition from Us .early stages in the fairs, or periodical market days, for particular branches of trade, which con-- stituted the only embodiment of the idea even less than- a' eentury ago, would be one of curious Interest. In Us old form Its aim was only to sell wares to those who might wish to buy. Trade, Immediate and present, was the leading— indeed, the only—idea. The effect of such contact, of course, was educational. Men learned to know tnelr remoter as well as nearer neighbors. Ideas were transferred into localities remote from the .places of their birth, and, inspired with the vigor of a new soil, sprung into new and luxuriant growth, : But this was not one of the conscious purposes of such affairs In earlier days. It was reserved for the last quarter of the nineteenth century not only to vastly increase the purely material field covere4 by the exposition, but to add to Us conscious purpose of educating the wo'rld of men and women In knowledge of each others' capabilities. It was reserved for Chicago, In the closing decade of the century, to expand the educational .Idea beyond application to material'ends alone, and to develop the Intellectual expansion latent in the exposition Idea. The Intellect Is Involved In all the productions of man, of course, but the great exposition of 1893 in Chicago was the first in which there was comparison and communion- of Intellect otherwise than in Us application to material things. During that exposition, for the first time In history, oplnioir arid thought on all kinds of themea, were Invited, and came into graceful comparison and collision. With that occasion, pratlcally, was Introduced another great sttfp In the evr olutlon of the Idea, so far, certainly, as concerns this country. The .people of, 'what had been, only a short time ago, warring sections of one great country, began t^ smooth away asperities, and to develop A more homogeneous nationality of iee-Uns through intermlnglina; the cultivation of a taste for? and love of the.higher manifestations of'our civilization. The summer climate of Tennessee Is 'incomparable, being subject to no extremes of any kind. A long visit cannot fail' to be full of pleasure for' residents of all parts of our country, and from these considerations alone Nashville, from the 1st of May next for elx months, -should prove the most attractive center 'of pilgrimage within our national borders. It is. peculiarly gratifying that Illinois,- not only- as respects the popular feeling, but In respect'of the action of, her official representatives, has proved to be alive to the significance of the occasion and to the peculiar propriety of her taking conspicuous participation. The state haa made a .generous appropriation to defray the expenses of that participation, and as before stated, the governor has appointed a commission of • forty gentlemen tor take charge of the .state's participation In the historic commemoration, .and generally look after the Interests and convenience of Illinois and Illlnoisana throughout the period of the exposition. ', This commission already has its wonc well in hand. '.Subordinate committees ha,ve been selected, and all are actively engaged. One of the first steps taken was "to determine that there should be an Illinois building on the grounds, and the commission felicitously decided to build, for that purpose, a reproduction, oh a scale of ^one-sixth the original proportions, as to exterior and general arrangement, of the matchless Administration building of the.World's Co* lumblan exposition of 1893 In Chicago. A .committee from the commission visited Nashville to arrange a site for the same, and the exposition management, gladly accorded one of the best sites on the ground, where the building , will contribute largely to the beauty of the whole effect, while being In all respects admirably adapted for its peculiar purposes. Probably no other state will be more munificently and aptly represented. '••-.-•' Illlnoisans will'The sedulously cared for during the whole period, and thq commission is firmly resolved to spare no effort to make the, state's pa,rt In the exposition In every way worthy of the occasion of the sturdy old state Which offers its hogpltality, and of the •wealth and enlightened power of our own commonwealth. As part of that end it urges every citizen of Illinois who can possibly do so, to honor himself or herself by being present at some time during .the exposition in the building which our state will throw open In honor of the occasion.' There will doubtless be an "Illinois day"—possibly a "Chicago day"~but whether able to be present on thoacv ep'eclal days or not all lilinolsana are ,wrged, in view of the good effects in every way, certain to .flow, from this commemoration, Jo visit it at some time during its projjresa.
