"THE MM OF PALMS." Bfi. fALMAdfe TELLS 61? Mf§ Setiaon fram th* Tcits "the oi TsMhlsh tir»t"—Isaiah 60:1*. —The Heathen temple* Crumbling fcefoi* Christian Light. Hfi TARSH1SH OF my text by many i commentators issup- [posed to be the isl- *and of Ceylon, upon > which the seventh | s e r m o n of the " 'Round-the-World" | series lands us. Cey' Ion was called by the Romans Taprpbaue. John Milton called it "Golden Ch.e'ra.o- nese" Moderns have called Ceylon "The Isle of Palms;" "The Isle of Flowers;" "The Pearl Drop oil the Brow of India;" "The Isle of Jewels;" "The Island of Spice;" "The Show Place of the Universe;" "The Land of Hyacinth and Ruby." In my eyes, for scenery it appears to be a mixture of Yosemite and Yellowstone park. All Christian people want to know more of Ceylon,for they have a long 1 while been contributing 1 for its evangelization. As our ship from Australia approached this island, there hovered over it •clouds thick and black as the superstitions which have hovered here for centuries; but the morning sun was breaking through like the gospel light which is to scatter the last cloud of moral gloom. The sea lay along the coast calm as the eternal purposes of God toward all islands and continents. We swing into the harbor of Colombo, • which is made by a break water built at vast expense. As we floated into it the water is black with boats of all sizes and manned \>y people of all colors, but chiefly Tamils and Cinga- lese. There are two things I want most to see on this island: a heathen temple with its devotees in idolatrous worship, and an audience of Cingalese addressed by a Christian missionary. The entomologist may have his capture of brilliant insects; and the sportsman his tent adorned with antler of red deer and tooth of wild boar; and the painter his portfolio of gorge three thousand feet down, and of days dying on evening pillows of purple cloud etched with fire; and tho botanist his camp full of orchids, and crowfoots, and gentians, and valerian, and lotus. I want most to find out the moral and religious triumphs, how many wounds have been healed; how many sorrows comforted; how many entombed nations resurrected. Sir William Baker, the famous explorer and geographer, did well for Ceylon after his eight years' residence in this island, and Prof. Ernst Ileckel, the professor from Jena, did well when he swept these waters, and rummaged these hills and took home for future inspection the insects of this tropical air. And forever honored be such work; but let all that is sweet in rythm, and graphic on canvas, and imposing in monument, and immortal in memory be brought to tell the deeds of those who were heroes and heroines for Christ's sake. Many scholars have supposed that this island of Ceylon was the original Garden of Eden where the snake first appeared on reptilian mission. There are reasons for belief that this was the site where the first homestead was opened and destroyed. It is' so* near the equator that there are not 'more than twelve degrees of Fahrenheit difference all the year round. Perpetual foliage, perpetual fruit, and all styles of animal life prosper. What luxuriance, and abundance, and superabundance of life! What styles of plumage do not the birds sport! What styles of scale do not the fishes reveal! What styles of song do not the groves have in their libretto! Here on the roadside and clear out on the beach of the sea stands the cocoanut tree, saying: "Take my leaves for shade. Take the juice of my fruit for delectable drink. Take my saccharine for sugar. Take my fibre for the cordage of your ships. Take my oil to kindle your lamps. Take my wood to fashion your cups and pitchers. Take my leaves to thatch your roofs. Take my smooth surface on which to print your books. Take my 30,000,000 trees covering 500,000 acres, and with the exportation en-' rich the world I will wave in your fans and spread, abroad in your umbrellas. I will vibrate in your musical instruments. I will be the scrubbing brushes on your floors." Here also stands the palm tree, saying; "I an? at your disposal. With these ai-ms I fed your ancestors 150 years ago, and with these same arms I will feed your ancestors 150 years from now. I defy the centuries!" Here also stands the nutmeg tree, saying; "I am ready to spice.yoxu 1 beverages and enrich your puddings, and with my sweet dust make insipid things palatable." Here also stands the coffee plant, saying: "With the liquid boiled 1 trom nay berry I stimulate the nations morning by morning 1 ." Here stands the- t^a-plant, saying: "With the |jquid boiled frqp.roy.lefif J soothe the;, woi-ld's nerves" and. stimulate the world's conversation**evening by evening 1 ," Here stands the cinthona, saying; >'J am the r foe.of malaria- , In Jill climates my bitterness is tfee.glaughter of fevers." ;r •. * Whftt miracles of productiveness' on these islands! Enough suysr to sweeten all the world's beverages! enough t,o pile all the world's fruit enough rice to, mi* all vhe \ypr}(J's puddings; enough, eaefiapw to powder §11 the \voyJ4$ to fitft ifL ing fefenlttf, tiding thfdfp a ein&atn6n grofe, I fifsi tasted tfcfe leftveS attd bark of that tfondiMettt SO valuable tod delle-ate that tranSp-ofte'd 6M ships the af-oma bi the cinnaittoli is dispelled if place'd near a rival bark. Of such great value is the cinnamon shrub that years ago those who injured it in Ceylon were put to death. But that which once was a jungle of cinnamon is now a park of gentlemen's residences. The long, white dwelling houses are bounded with this shrub and all other styles of growth congregated there, make a botanical garden. Doves called cinnamon doves hop among the branches, and cfows, more poetically styled ravens, which never could Sing, but think they can, fly across the road giving full test of their vocables. Birds vvhieh learned their chanting under the very eaves of heaven overpowered all with their grand march of the tropics* The hibiscus dapples the scene with its scarlet clusters. All shades of brown and emerald, and saffron, and brilliance; melons, limes magnosteehs J|custafd apples, guavas, pine apples, jessamine so laden with aroma they have to hold fast to the wall, and begonias, gloriosas on fire, and orchids so delicate other lands must keep them under conserv* atory, but here defiant of all Weather, and flowers more or less akin to azaleas, and honeysuckles, and floxes, and fuchias and chrysanthemums and rhododendrons, and fox-gloves, and pansies, which dye the plains and mountains of Ceylon with heaven, The evening hour burns incense of all stylos of aromatics. The convolvulus, blue as if the sky had fallen, and butterflies spangling the air, and arms of trees sleeved with' blossoms, and rocks upholstered of moss, commingling sounds, and sights.and odors,until eye, and ear, ( and nostril vie with each other as to which sense shall open the door to the most enchantment. A struggle between music, and perfume, and iridescence. Oleanders reeling in intoxication of color. Great banyan trees that have been changing their mind for centuries, each century carrying out a new plan of growth, attracted our attention, and saw'us pass in the year of 13'j-l, as they saw pass the generations of 1794, and 1094. Colombo is so thoroughly embowered in foliage that if you go into one of its towers and look down upon the city of one hundred and thirty thousand people you can not see a house. Oh, the trees of Ceylon! May you live to behold the morning- climbing down through their branches, or the evening tipping their leaves with amber and gold! I forgive the Buddhist for the worship of trees until they know of the God who made the trees. I wonder not that there are some trees in Ceylon called sacred. To mo all trees are sacred. I wonder not that before one of them they burn camphor flowers, and hang 1 lamps around its branches, and a hundred thousand people each year make pilgrimage to this tree. Worship something man must, and until he hear of the onlj' being worthy of worship, what so elevating as a tree! What glory enthroned amid its foliage! What a majestic doxologv spreads out in its branches! What a voice when tho tempests pass through it! How it looks down upon the cradle and the grave of centuries! As the fruit of the tree unlawfully eaten struck the race with woe and the uplifting of another tree brings peace to the soul, let the woodman spare the tree, and all nations honor it, if, through higher teaching, we do not, like the Ceylonesc, worship it! How consolatory that when we no more 'walk under the tree branches • on earth, we may see the "Tree of life which bears .twelve manner of fruit, and yields her fruit every month, and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations!" Two processions I saw in Ceylon within one hour, the first led by a Hin- doo priest, a huge pot of flowers on his head, his face disfigured with holy lacerations, and his unwashed followers beating as many discords from what are supposed to be musical instruments, as at one time can be induced to enter the human 'ear. The procession halted at the door of the huts. The occupants came out and made obeisance and presented small contributions. In return thereof the priest sprinkled ashes upon the children who came forward, this evidently a form of benediction. Then the procession -led on by the priest started again; more noise, more ashes, more genuflection. However keen one sense's of the ludicrous, he could find nothing to excite a smile in the movements of such a procession. Meaningless, oppressive, squalid, filthy, sad. Returning to our carriage, we rode on for a few moments, and we came on another procession, a kindly lady leading groups of native children alljipjean, bright, happy, laughing. ,They*Svere a Christian school put for exercise, There seemed as much intelligence, refinement and happiness in that regi* ment of young Cingalese as you would find in the ranks of any young ladies' seminary being chaperoned on then- afternoon walk through Central park, New York, or Hyde park, London. The Hindoo procession illustrated on a small scale something of * what Hindoqism can do for the world. The Christian procession illustrated on a small scaje something of what Christianity can do^or the world, but those two processions were only fragments of two great' prpcessiops ever march" ing across our world; the procession blasted, of superstitition and the procession blessed of gospel light. J saw them in one afternoon, in, Ceylon. They are tq be seen, jn a,U nations. . Nothing is of more thrilling interest than the Christian achievements- ju, this island. The Episcopal church was here' the National church, but dises- -tabliptHnent l^s taken place, apd since Mr.. •CrMs'tone'i accomplishment a j that fact ,ia J8SQ, all deBpsn 98 filial platfaria, aB a all the" mighty work.

But passing up and dowft the stffeetS of Ceylon you flttd all styles 6i people within five minutes: Afghafis, fcaffifs, Portuguese, Mooi-men, botch, English^ Scotch, Irish, AmeHeabl fill classes, all dialects, all manners and cttstofns$ all styles of salaam. ?Che most intef* esting thing oh earth is the human race, and specimens oi all braches of it confront you in Ceylon. The island of the present is a quiet and incon* spicuous affair coinpafed With what it once was. The dead cities of Ceylon were larger and more imposing than are the living cities. On this island are dead New Yorks, and dead Pekins, and dead Edinburghs, and dead Lbtt' dons. Ever and anon at the stroke of the arctiEeologist's hammer the tbtnb of some great municipality flies open, and there are other buried cities that will yet respond to the explorer's pick ax. The Pompeii and Herculaneum Underneath Italy are sinall compared with the Pompeiis and Herctila* heums underneath Ceylon. Yonder is an exhumed city which was founded 500 yeai-s before Christ, standing in pomp and splendor for 1,200 years. Stairways up xvhich fifty men might pass side by side. Carved pillars, some of them fallen, some of them aslant*, some of them erect. Phidiases and Christopher Wrens never heard of here performed the marvels of sculpture and architecture. Aisles through which royal processions inarched. Arches under which kings were carried. .City with reservoir twenty miles in circumference. Extemporized lakes that did their cooling and refreshing for twelve centuries. Ruins more sug- gevstive than Melrose and Kenilworth. Ceylonian Karnaks and Luxors. Ruina retaining much of grandeur, though, wars bombarded them and time put his chisel on every block, and more than all, vegetation put its anchors, and pries, and wrenches in all the crevice's. Dago- bas, or palaces where relics of saints or deities are, kept. Dagobas four hundred feet high, and their fallen material burying precious things for the sight of which modern curiosity has digged and blasted in vain. Procession of elephants in imitation, wrought into lustrous marble. Troops of hor es in full run. Shrines, chapels, cathedrals wrecked on the mountain side. Stairs of moon stone. Exquisite scrolls rolling up more mysteries than will ever bo unrolled. Over 1 sixteen square miles, the ruins of one city strewn. Throne rooms on which at different times sat 165 kings, reigning in authority they inherited. Walls that witnessed coronations, assassinations, subjugations, triumphs. Altars at which millions bowed ages before the orchestras celestial woke the shepherds with midnight overture. When Lieut. Skinner, in 1833, discovered the site of some of these cities, he found congregated in them undisturbed assemblages of leopaz-ds, porcupines, flamingoes and pelicans; reptiles sunning themselves on the altars; prima donnas rendering ornithological chant from deserted music halls. One king restored much of the grandeur; rebuilt 1,500 residences, but ruin soon resumed its scepter. But all is down; the spires down; the, pillars down; the tablets down; the glory of splendid arches down. What killed those cities? Who slew the New York and Londoa of the year 500 B. C.?= Was it un- healthed with a host of plagaes? Was it foreign armies laying siege? Was it whole generations weakened by their own vices? Mystery sits amid, the monoliths and brick dust. Finger on lip in eternal silence while the centuries guess and guess in vain. We simply know that genius planned those cities. An eminent writer estimates that a pile of bricks in one ruin of Ceylon would be enough 'to build a wall ten feet high from Edinburgh to London; 1,600 .pillars wiif.i carved capitals are standing sentinel for ten miles. You can judge somewhat of the size of the cities by the reservoirs that were required to slake their thirst; judging the size of the city from the size of the cup out of which it drank, Cities crowded with, inhabitants; not like American or English cities, but packed together as only bar' baric tribes can pack them. But their knell was sounded; their light went out. Giant trees are the only royal family now occupying those palaces, , The growl of wjld, beasts, where one? the guffaw of .wassajl ascended. Anur' adhapura-'and Pollonara will never be rebuilded. .Lefall'the living eities of the earth, take warning. Cities are hvinaap, haying a, time ,to be bow .-and a time to die. No wore certain!^ 1 have they a cradle than a grave, 4- ' .last judgment is appointed for individuals, but cities have their last judgment JB this world, They bles,s, they pu,r§e, they worship, they blaspheme, they suffer, they are rewarded, they are overthrown, Preposterous! says sqjne o»e, to that any of our American ar ao cities which have §tfto,4 &p long ipaa ever cpme .through yicg to. »*« tinotion, But New Yprk and ^QQd.o.n, have R9t stood go Ippg as thone, Say* ion,es.e cjt^s s.tpp,<i, Where thrope outsie o£ Pevipn, Q B wh,j|h,.'j< ' '" , . - B> & vbtg'ol 9 itf % $r« ItoWe ciafy e'bm'tfiHee' de'dided te frgfrorl; a tesolfltiqla fo* the iMffe&entfieihl oi Judge fticltS.

The i-esigflation of John C, Black, congressman at large from Illinois, was presented tb the house. . A repbrt adverse tb Judge Ricks was made to the house judiciary Committee by Representative Bailey. Impeach* ment will probably be recommended to the house. Mr. Gorman defended his course on the tariff bill in a speech in the senate. A criticism of Mr. Hill drew from the New Yorker a warm reply. Republican senators will pass a tariff bill if the President calls an extra session, claiming it is useless to tinker with the currency until the revenues have been increased. A bill to provide for carrying into effect tho international arbitration resolution adopted by congress in 1890 was offered in the senate by Mr. Sherman. The senate Friday debated Mr. Hill's amendment to the urgency deficiency bill designed to afford an opportunity to test the constitutionality of the income tax law. POLITICAL. In his inaugural address Gov. Morrill of Kansas warned his hearers to cease talking about repudiation. Gen. William Sewell was nominated for senator by the republican legislative caucus at Trenton, N. J. Sessions of both houses of the Illinois legislature were brief.
