(Froth flic Cwinffton, Ey., Post.) Thfe Hon. John M. Rice, of t/ouisa« Lawrence county, Kentucky, has for the past two years retired from active life as Criminal and Circuit Judge of • the sixteenth Judicial District of Kentucky. He has for many years served his native county-and state in the legislature at Frankfort and at Washington, and, Until his retirement, wasja noted figure in political and Judicial circles. The Judge is well known" throughout the state and possesses the best qttal- . ities which go to make a Kentucky ; gentleman honored Wherever he is known. About six years ago the bodily troubles which finally caused his retirement at a time when his mental faculties were in the zenith of their strength, began their- encroachment upon his naturally strong constitution A few days ago a Kentucky , Post He- porter called upon Judge Rice, who in the following words related the history of the causes that led to his retirement. "It is justaboitt six years since I hltd an attack of rheumatism,slight at first, but soon .developing into Sciatic rheuma-r tism, which began first With acute shooting pains in the hips, gradually extending downward to my feet. "My condition became so bad that I eventually lost all power of my legs, . and then .the liver, kidneys and bladder and in fact, my whole system, became deranged. I tried the treatment of many physicians, but receiving no lasting benefit from them, I had recourse • to patent remedies, trying one kind • .after another until I believe there jwere> none I had not sampled.. "In 1888, attended by my son John. ' I went to Hot Springs, Ark. I was not much benefited by some months' stay .'. there when I returned home. My- liver ,',was actually dead, and a dull, persistent pain in its.region kept me on the rack all the time. In 1890 I was reappointed Circuit Judge, but it was impossible for me to give attention to my duties. In 1891 I went to the Silurian Springs, Wakeshaw, Wis. I stayed there some time,, but without improvement. • • ' * ' "Again I returned home, this time feeling no hopes of recovery. The muscles of my limbs were now reduced by atrophy to. mere strings. Sciatic pains tortured me terribly, but it was the disordered condition of my liver that was I felt gradually wearing my life away. Doctors gave me up, all kinds of remedies had been tried without avail, and there was nothing more for,me to do but resign myself to fate. "I lingered on in this condition sustained almost entirely. • by stimulents until April, 1893. One day John saw an account of Dr., Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People in the Kentucky Post. This was something new, and as one more drug after so many others could 1 not do so much harm. John prevailed upon me to try the Pink Pills. It was, I think, in the first week in May the '' pills arrived. I remember I was not expected to live for more than three or • four days at the time. The effect of the. Pills, however, was * marvelous and I could soon eat heartily, a thing I had not ''done for years. The liver began 'almost instantaneously to perform its functions, and has done so ever since Without doubt the pills saved my life and while I do not crave notoriety • I cannot refuse to testify to their worth. The reporter called upon Mr. Hughes, the Louisa druggist, who informed him that Dr, Williams Pink Pills have been very popular since Judge Rice used them with'such benefit. He mentioned several who have found relief in their use. An analysis of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale'People shows that they contain, in a condensed form, all the elements necessary to give new life and richness to the blood, and restore shattered nerves. They are an unfailing specific for such diseases as lodomotor ataxia,' partial paralysis, St. Vitus' , dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous headache, the after effects of la grippe, palpitation of the heart, pale and sallow complexions, all forms of weakness either in male or female, and all, diseases resulting from vitiated humors in the blood. Dr, Williams' Pink Pills are sold by all dealers, or will be sent postpaid on receipt of • price, (50 cents a box, pr 6 boxes for ' $3,50—they are never sold in bulk or by the 100) by addressing Dr. Williajns 1 Medicine Co,, Schenectady, w v ft Cfttofc t6 tf* eft the Will fcMrt* ti« aft t(i6 tittttat bfeAtftift'tton Jl tlgllntit tit fe»ti'» SAB- fttitl Atti ot We Ate N. DAUGHTERS QF EVE, Fencing is becoming a fad among telegraph, operators in Pf the pore 'maiden, desirous of a swaying ffltfly attain tfce samp by Jilhe 24.—For to-day, Rev. Dh Tftlmage has chosen a subject of .world-wide interest as the theme of his sermon through the press, vife: the necessity of guarding the Christian Sabbath against invasions that aim at its destrtictidn. The text selected Was Ex. 31:13, "Verily, My Sabbaths te Shall Keep." The wisdom of cessation from hard labor one day out of seven is almost universally acknowledged. The World has found out that it can do less work in seven days than in six, and that the fifty-two days of the year devoted to rest are an addition rather than a subtraction. Experiments have been made in all departments. The great Lord Castlereagh thought he could work his brain three hundred and sixty-five days, in the year, but after awhile broke down and committed suicide; and WSlberfotce said of him. "Poor Castlercaglil This is the result of the- non-observance of tlie Sabbath!' . A celebrated merchant declared: "I should have been a maniac. long ago but for the Sabbath. 1 ' The "nerves, the brain, the muscles, the bones, the entire physical, intellectual and moral nature cry out for the Sabbatic: rest What is true of man is, -for the most part, true of the brute. Travelers have found out that they come to their places of destination sooner when they let their horses rest by the way on .the Sabbath. . What is the matter with those forlorn creatures harnessed to 'some of ' the city cars? Why do tht,y stumble, and stagger, and.fall? It is for the lack of the Sabbatic rest. In other days, when the 'herdsmen drove their sheep and cat'ile from 'tile far west down to the seaboard, it was found out by experiment that these herdsmen and drovers who halted over the seventh day got down sooner to the seaboard than those who passed on without the observance of the holy .Sabbath. ' The fishermen off the coast of'Newfoundland declare that those men. during the year catch the most fish who stop during the Lord's day. When I asked the Rocky Mountain locomotive engineer Why ..he changed locomotives when it seemed to be a straight route, lie said: "We have to let the locomotiv.e stop and cool off. or the, machinery wbnld soon break down." Men who made large quantities of salt were told that if they allowed their kettles to cool over Sunday they would submit themselves to, a great deal'of damage. The experi-. ment was made, : some observing the Sabbath and some not observing, the Sabbath. . Those who allowed the fires go down and the kettles to cool once a* week were compelled to spend only a few pennies in the way of repairs; while in the case where no Sabbath was observed, many dollars were demanded for repairs. '' In other words, intelligent man, dumb beast, and dead machinery cry out for the , Lord's day. But while the Attempt to kill the Sabbath by the stroke 6*f axe and flail and yardstick has beautifully failed, it is proposed in our day to drown the Sabbath by flooding it with secular amusementa They would bury it very decently iinder the wreath of the target co npany and to the, music of all brazen instruments. There are to-day, in the different cities, ten thousand * hands and ten thousand pens busy in attempting to cut out the heart of our Christian Sabbath, and leave it a'bleeding skeleton of what it once was. The effort is organized and tremendous, and unless the friends of Christ and the lovers of good order shall rouse up rijrht speedily, their sermons and protests will be uttered after the castle is taken. There are cities in the land where the Sabbath has almost perished, and it is becoming 'ft .practical ..questipn whether we<who received a piire Sabbath from the hands of our fathers shall have piety and pluck enpugh' to give to our children the same blessed, inheritance, The'eternal God helping ns, we will! I protest against this jnvasipn of the holy Sabbath, in the first place, be' cause it is a war on Pmne enactment. God says, }n Isaiah: "Jf thou turn •hW any righifc -Y*fe •trait- family, the governor rules tBe 1 s the President rules tntf whole Ik wonder if the Lord has a right to' the nations and make the cnactn.__ . "Remember'the Sabbath day to kf of) it holy," and if there .is any appeal to a higher court, from that decision; and if the men who afe warring against the enactment a#& not guilty of high treason against the maker of heaven and earth. Thejir have in our cities put God on trial. It has been the theaters and the 6p'er& houses, plaititiffs, vs. the Lord Almighty, defendant; the suit has been begtiri, and who shall come but ahead, you'know. Whether it be popular of unpopular, 1 ttow annouhcet it as my" f opinion that the people have no rights save those which the great Jehovfcn gives, them. He has never given the right to man tb break his holy Sabbath, and" as long as his throne stands, he never will give that right. The prophet asks a question which 1 can easily'ahswer, "Will a man rob it.ll btkfce ol God?" Yes. They robbed him last P»W fa be ft revival in favor 4dxfjjishjo.n.e(i' B&mesf fpp girls, " etc, by him? i» wpw •A Jfaw YortT-firt' thpsw bar ij pwed a mm'ti a«? 4 k w* ' • '-until tin poUfl* totartw ' ' away thy foot from doing thy pleasure on ray holy day, thou shalt walk upon the high, places."

Well,, it, was wbe» the earth was shying »o a.11 full of fire that Gpd "Remember the it hply," * timnft the streets where P» Sunday night at the theaters and! thfe opera houtes, and I charge upon them the infamous and high-handed larceny, 1 hold the same opinion, as a sailor. 1 have heard of. I'he crew had be;en discharged from, the .vessel because they would not work while they were in port on the; Lord's day. The captain went out to get sailors. He found: one man and he said to him, "Will you serve me on the;Sabbath?" "No.*', "Why not?"' "Well," replied the, Old sailor, "a mah who'will rob God Almighty of his Sabbath would rob me of my wages if he. got a chance." > Suppose you were poor,, and you. came to a dry eoods merchant and asked for some cloth for garments,, and'he should say, "I'll give you six yards;" and while he was off from the counter binding up the six yards you should', go behind the coun.ter and steal one additional yard. That is what every man does when he breaks the Lord's Sabbath. God gives us six days out of seven, reserving himself, and if you ..will not let him have it, it is mean beyond all computation. . , ; Again: I am opposed to "this desecration of the Sabbath by secular entertainments because it is a war on; the 'statutes of most Of the states. • The law in New York state says: ; , "It shall not be lawful to exhibit,on. the first day of the week, commonly called Sunday, to the public, in any' building, garden; grounds, courtroom or other room or place within the city and county of New York, any interlude, tragedy, comedy,. opera, ballet,: play, farce, negro minstrelsy, negro or other dancing, or any other enter; tainment of the, stage, or any parts therein, or any equestrian, circus, or dramatic.performance, or any performance of jugglers, acrobats or ropp-dancing."' ' ' • : >i; Was there ever-a.plainer •• enactment" than that? - Who made the law? ; You, who. at the ballot .boxes .decided who should go to Albany and sit 'in the legislature. You who in any region exercise the right of suffrage. They made the law for you and for your families, and now I say that any man who attempts to over-ride that law insults you and> m<? and every man who ;has the right of suffrage. Still further: I protest against the invasion of the Sa,bbath, because it is a foreign war. Now, if you hear at this moment the booming of a gun in the harbor, or if a shell from some foreign frigate should drop into your street,, would you, keep your seats in church?, YQU would want to face the foe and every gun that could be managed would be brought into use, and every' ship that could be'brought out of the navv yard would swing from her anchorage, and the question would be decided: You do not want a foreign war, and yet I have to tell 'y°, u tnat this, invasion, of God's, h'ply' day is a foreign war. As among our own native-born, population' there are two classes—the good and the, bad; so it. is .with the -people who come from other shores^- the re are the law-abiding and the lawless. The former are 'welcome here. The-more of them 1 the'-better we'like it. 'But let not the 'lawless come from other shores expecting to breakdown our Sabbath a«dinstitute in the place pf it a foreign Sabbath. Hpw do you feel, ye who, have been brough^ up amid, the hills of New England, about giving up .the American .Sabbath? Ye who ' spent your childhood under the'shadow ,of the Adirondacks or the' Catskills,; ye who were bor n ° n the banks of '£he Savannah., or'Ohio, or Oregon, hpw do you feel *J1 the theaters tv&f music, and full blase 'oi light. Thfe fHnestofe's and saloons wefe thronged with an tmtisnal number of customers. At even-tide I stood and watched the excursionists coming home, fagged out men, women and children, a gulf- stream of fatigu6, irritability, and wretchedness; for I think it would take three or four dhys to get 6vei- that miserable way of Sundayittg. It seemed more like an American Fourth of .Inly than a Christian Sftbbath. Now, in contrast, 1 present one of the Sabbaths in one of our best American cities. Holy silence coining down with the day da\vn. Business men more deliberately looking into the faces of their children, and talking to them about their present and future Welfare. Men sit longer at the table in the morning, because the stores are not to be opened, and the mechanical tools are Hot to be taken up. A hymn .s sung. There are congratulations and good cheers 1 ! through the house, The street silent until 10 o'clock, when there is a regular, orderly tramp churchward. Houses of Ood. vocal with thanksgiving for mercies received, for prayers with com* fort, w'ith charities for the poor. Rest for the body, llest for the soul. The 'nerves quieted, the temples cooled, the mind cleared, the soul strengthened, and our entire population turned out on Monday morning ten years younger, better prepared for the duties of this life, better prepared for the life that is to come. Which do you like best, the American Sabbath or the Parisian Sabbath? Do you know in what boat the Sabbath came across the seas and landed on our shores? It was in the "Mayflower." Do you know in what boat the Sabbath will leave us, if it ever goes? It will be in the ark that floats over a deluge of national destruction. Bring your Voices, your'pens, your printing presses and your pulpits into the Lord's artillery corps for the defense of our holy day. To-day, in your families and in your. Sabbath schools, recite: "Remember .the Sabbath day to keep it holy." Decree before high heaven that this war oh your religious rights and the cradles of your children shall bring ignominious defeat to the enemies of God and the public weal. For those who • die in the contest battling for the right we shall chisel the ephitaph: "These are they who came out of great tribulation, and had their robes washed and made white in the blood of the lamb." But for that one who shall prove in this moral crisis recreant to God and the church there shall be no honorable epitaph. He shall not-be worthy, even of a burial, place in ; all this free land; but the appropriate interment for such an one wculd be , to carry out'his remains and drop them into the sea, where the lawless winds which keep no Sabbath may gallop over the grave of him who lived , and died a traitor to God, the church and the free institutions of America Long live the Christian Sabbath, Perish forever all attempts to overthrow GRAINS Of 1 GOLD.

Game e^gs and small birds alike are the' objects of the foes, furred, and feathered, who come behind man. The feathered ones naturally have the widest scope; for eggs, whether reposing on the ground or in a well- built nest, in a lofty tree,, come equally within the range.of sight and swoop. The furred ones have to content themselves with the ground etrgs, which are, of course, the best; perhaps, therefore, .they have the^ best of the deal, though not so much variety. And among them we rank facjle princeps the stealthy, sinuous, ubiquitous, weasel. Stoat and polecat like eggs, but they are rarer and more sparsely distributed than the smaller, but much more effective weasel,' -This wily creature is an egg-sucker of immense enthusiasm and perseverance, Winding its, way through the purple heather, or the scrub and bracken, toward the nursery of the red or black grouse, creeping amid grass or clover, or scarcely rustling along the leaf-carpeted ditch toward the simple nest of the gallant he a partridge,, a veritable amaaon in defense of her family, poking its head out of a disused drain in the farm yard, reconnojtering the ben houses, gliding through the long grass at the |<jges of the-ndes, and amid the hazels and hollies of the copses after the pheasant's costly, eggs, the weasel is equally indefatigable.'. It will ban ouet ,on every egg it can ftnd, t rged' like a trq'ut on the may'fly, kill young birds' till' it desists from sheer weariness, kike its relative, tfie ferret, it is,i» and its c An aimless life Is a fruitless life. There is no rest in doing nothing. Thoughtfnlness is the curse of the age. Calumny is like coal; if it does not burn, it will soil. Heal glory springs from the silent conquest of ourselves. Two impossibilities — love without fear and life without care. Those are fortunate who borrow experience instead of buying it. A great many giants become very small when you get close to them. People always admire the wisdom of those who come to ask for advice. The day that a man marries a good wife he takes a big step toward heaven. • One may be better than his reputation or his conduct, but never better than his , principle. Cheerfulness is an excellent working quality, imparting great elasticity to the character. It is the religion that begins in the heart and then gets into the hands and feet that lifts the world. If angels' ore permitted to look down upon Us, they never see anything on earth more beautiful than a godly life, Money dishonestly acquired is never worth what it cost, while a good conscience never costs as much as it is worth. Scandals are like dandelion seeds, they are arrow-headed, and stick where .they loll, and bring forth and multiply -four fold. The first consideration with a knave is low to help himself; and the second how to do it with an appearance of helping you. . • Perfectly at Home.
