1 . "r,.V METALMAGrlSEftMON OPPORtUNlTV- TH6 SUBJECT OF AN INTERESTING TALK. "A» We Have Ihetefore tftt tts tJtt Good"—Gftt. 6 : *—A Storfr of the Gfreat Pfeacbet'i Boyhood Daya—Life's Subllifte TDfiNVBR.COLO., years ago, an audience had assein- b 1 e d for divine worship. The pastor of the church for whom 1 was to preach that night, interested in the seating of the people, stood in the pulpit looking from side to fltde, and when no more people could I j crowded within the walls, lie turned to me and said, with startling emphasis: "What an opportunity! Immediately that word began to enlarge, and while a hymn was being sung, at every stanza the word "opportunity" swiftly and mightily unfolded, and while the opening prayer was being made, the, word piled up into Alps and Himalayas of meaning, and spread out into other latitudes and longitudes of significance until it became hemispheric, and it still grew in altitude and circumference until it encircled other worlds, and swept out and on, and around until it was as big as eternity. Never since have I read or heard that word without being thrilled with its magnitude and momentum. Opportunity! Although in the text ,to some it may seem a mild andfluiet note, in the great gospel harmony it is a staccato passage, is one of the loveliest and It awfulest wonld hate got thete ybnrself. opportunity! The day I left our country home to look after myself, we rode across the cbuntry, and my father was driving. Of course I said nothing that implied how I felt. But there are hundreds of men here, who from their own experience knew hoW I felt. At such a time a young man may be hopeful, and even impatient, to get into the battle of life himself, but to leave the home where everything has been done for you; your father or older brothers taking your part When you were . imposed on by larger boys; and yoUr mother always around, whett you got the cold, xvith mustard applications for the chest, or herb tea to make you sweat off the fever, and sweet mixtures in the cup by the bed to stop the, cough, tnking sometimes too much of it because it was pleasant to take; and then to go out with no one to stand between you and the world, gives one a choking sensation at the throat, and a homesickness before you have got three miles away from the old folks. There was on s the clay I spoke of a silence for a long while, and then my father began to tell how good the Lord had been to him, in sickness and in health, nnd when times of hardship came how Providence had always provided the means of livelihood for the large household! and he wound up by saying "De Witt, I have always found it safe to trust the Lord." My father has been dead thirty years, but in all the crises of my life—and there have been many of them—I have felt the mighty boost of that lesson in the farm wagon: "Dc Witt, I have always found it safe to trust the Lord." The fact was, my father saw that was his opportunity, and he improved it. This is one rea- words in our language of more than one hundred thousand words of English vocabulary. "As we have opportunity, let us do good." What is an opportunity? The lexicographer would coolly tell you it is a conjunction of favorable circumstances for 'accomplishing a purpose; but words can not tell what it is. Take a thousand years to manufacture a definition, and you could not successfully describe it. Opportunity! The measuring rod with which the Angel of the Apocalypse measured heaven could not measure this pivotal word of my text. Stand on the edge o.f the precipice of all time and let down the fathoming IUK hand under hand, and lower down and lower down, and for a quintillion of years let it sink, and the lead will not strike bottom. Opportunity! But while I do not attempt to measure or define the word, 1 will, God helping me, take the responsibility of telling you something about opportunity. First,''it is very swift in its motions. Sometimes within one minute it starts from the throne of God, sweeps around the earth, and reascends the throne from which it started. Within less than •vxty seconds it fulfilled its mission. In the second place opportunity never comes back. Perhaps an oppor tuuity "very much like it may arrive, but that one never. Naturalists tell us of insects that are born, fulfill their mission, and expire in an hour; but many opportunities die so soon after they are born that their brevity of life is incalculable. What most amazes ine is that opportunities do such overshadowing, far reaching and tremendous VVOI;K in such short earthly allowance. You are a business man of large experience. The past eighteen months''have been hard on business men. A youa^ merchant at his wits' end came' into your office, or ; mr house, and you said, "Times are nurd uow, but better days will cuine. I have seeii things as bad, or worse, but we got out. and we will get out of this. The brightest days that this country evei. ,aw are yet to come." The young mau to whom you said that was ready lor suicide, or something worse, iitimely, a fraudulent turn to get out of his despairful position. Your hopefulness inspired him for all time, and thirty years after you are dead he Will be reaping the advantage of your optimism. Your opportunity to do that one thing for that young man was not half as long as the time I have iakcii to rehearse it. In yonder third gallery you sit, a snan of the world, but you wish everybody well. While the clerks are standing round in your store? or the men in your factory are taking their noon spell, some one says, "Have you heard that one of our men has been converted at the revival meeting in the Methodist church?" While it is being talked over wpu say, "Well, I do not believe son why I am an enthusiastic friend of r.11 "V*MiM r* ATrtn 'e P.Vi victinn nttannifltlOnS. all Young Men's Christian associations. They ^get hold of so many young men just arriving in the city, and while they are very impressionable, and it is the best opportunity. Why, how big the houses looked to us as we first entered the great city; and so many people! It seemed some meeting must have just closed to fill the streets in that way; and then the big placards announcing all styles of amusements, and so many of them on the same night, and every night, after our boyhood had been spent in regions where only once or twice in a whole year there had been nn entertainment in school house or church. That is the opportunity. Start that innocent young man in the right direction. Sb: weeks after will be too late. Tell me what such a young man docs with his first six weeks in a great city, and I will tell you what he will be throughout his life on earth, and where he will spend the ages of eternity. Opportunity! ' A city missionary in the lower parts of the city found a young woman ^ in wretchedness and sin. He said, "Why; do you not go home?" She said, "They no*, tWfc it Is -iti&Sni-SI Wfllef* ftp." then said the dying fthepheM, "Ah! that is good. 1 never sa^s- it that way before. All is well, though 1 pass through tho valley of the shadow ol death, Thou ftft with tee.' Shadows here, but sunshine above.". So the dying shepherd got peace. Living and dying may we have the same peace! Opportunity! Under the arch of that splettdidword let this multitude Of my hearers pass into the pardon* and hope, and triumph of the gospel. Go by companies of a hundred * each. Go by regiments of a thousand each. The aged leaning on a staff; the middle aged throwing off 'their burdens as they pass; attd the yoUhg to have their present joys " augmented by /More glorious satisfactions. iTofWara into the kingdom! As soon as you pass the dividing line there will be shouting all t up and down the heavens. The- crowned immortals will look down and cheer. Jesus of the Jftatty scars will rejoice at the result of his earthly sacrifices. -Departed saints will be gladdened that their prayers are answered. An ordfl* will be given for the spreading oi' a banquet at which you will be the honored guest. From the imperial gardens the wreaths will be twisted for your brow, and from the halls of eternal music the harpers will bring their harps, and the trumpeters their trumpets, and all up and down the amethystine stairways of the castles, and in all the rooms of the House of Many Mansions, it will be talked over with holy glee that this day while one plain man stood on the platform of this vast building giving the gospel call, an assemblage made up from all parts of the earth and piled up in these galleries, chose Christ as their portion, and started for Heaven a^.their everlasting home.

Those things do not last, People get excited and 'join the church and are no better than 'they were be' fore. I wish our men would keep away from those meetings." Do you know, oh, man, what you did in that minute of depreciation? There were two young men in that group who that night would have gone to those meetings and been saved for this world and, but you decided i hem not to go.' They are social natures. They already drink more than is good for them, and are disposed to be wild. Ifvom the time they beard you say that they accelerated their steps on the downward road, In ten yea,rs they will be through with their dissipations and,pass into the great beyond. _ That little talk of yours decided their-'destiny for this world and the next. You had ao opportunity that you misiin- proved, and how will you feel when you confront those two immortals in the last judgment and they tell you of that uufi-vtunate talk of yours that flung them over the precipice? Oh, roan ef the world, why did you not say in that n'ooa spell of conversation, "Good! law- glad that man has got religion, -'.fc^teh I had it myself. JJ-et vis ail gotfeft'0%ht, Com,e ojr, J wul you at the church door " you see yeu would have would not receive me at home." He said, "What is your father's name, and where does he live?" Having obtained the address and written to the father, the city missionary got a reply, on the outside of the letter the word '•immediate'' underscored. It was the heartiest possible invitation for the wanderer to come home. That was the city missionary's opportunity. And there are opportunities all about you, and on them written by the hand of the God who will bless you, and bless those whom you help, in capitals of light, the word "immediate." A military officer very profane in his habits was going down into a mine at ( ornwall, England, with a Christain miner, for many of those miners are Christians. The officer used profane language while iu the ca^e going down. As they were coming up out of the mine the profane officer said, "If it be so far down to your work, how much farther would it be to the bottomless pit? 1 ' The Christian miner responded, "I do not know how far it is down to that place, but if this rope should break you would be there in a minute." It was the Christian miner's opportunity. Many years ago a clergyman was on a sloop on our Hudson river, and hearing a man utter a blasphemy, the clergyman said, "You have spoken against my best friend, Jesus Christ." Seven years after, this same clergyman was on his way to the general assembly of the Presbyterian church at Philadelphia, wh--iu a young minister addressed him and asked him if he was not on a sloop on the Hudson river seven years before? The reply was in the affirmative. "Well," said the joung minister, "I was the man whom you corrected for uttering that oath. It led me to think and repent, and I am trying to atone somewhat for my early behavior. I am a preacher of the gospel, and a delegate to the general assembly," Seven years before on that Hudson river sloop was the clergyman's opportunity. A Scotch shepherd was . dying and had the pastor called in. The dying shepherd said to his wife, "Mary, please to go into the next room, for I ._. _ _ j. A _„,. ±\* n *-n \n\a\-£11* Q] f\n A " Vl/ll AT? The Indies Aro tho Most Profitable Customers at the Gaining-. The English, the Americans and the French are probably the most remun- nerative patrons of Monte Carlo,and it is to ^Switzerland and not to the frontier of Italy that the vast majority of pleasure seekers repair in summer, says the London Daily Telegraph. Again, at the very period when the Casino people wish to allure English visitors to the Riviera the London season is at its height, and the parliamentary session has as yet shown no sign of waning. The Atlantic sieamships are bringing to Europe every week shoals of American tourists, but our trans-Atlantic visitors usually pass the summer in London or Paris or at English or French watering places, and await cooler weather before they journey down south. Another suggestion made to 'the perplexed administration is that a club for the use of gentleman visitors should be established in connection with the Casino, it being proposed to utilize for the purpose the premises of the Hotel Monte Carlo, but it is difficult to see that the financial prosperity of the Casino company would be increased by supplementing the existing- tripot with a club. Visitors who really belong to cosmopolitan club- land can easily become members of the Cercle de la Mediteranec at Nice, and, after all, it is not the serious players, the Fcientitic operators a rouge et noir, who despise the merry but frivolous game of roulette, that are the most lucrative customers of the Casino. At trent-et-quarante it is really possible to win very large sums of money, not, indeed to break the bank—since Napoleon's dictum of the big batal- ions eventuall3 r winning jtill holds and always will hold good—but enough to cause the administration to close a particular table for a few hours. At roulette, however, for one winner of any considerable amount there are possibly 100 who, sooner or later, will be utterly and hopelessly decaves, or "cleaned out." Moreover, in modern times it has been the lady punters who, in the aggregate, bring* the greatest amount of grist to the mill of the Casino company. It is not that the ladies often go to the maximum of stakes to be realized—they are in general too timorous for that; but they play recklessly, and they will continue to play until they have lost their last 5-frane piece on the tapis vert, and a club" from which ladies were excluded would be bereft of the contributions of the sex who are, as gamesters, not less adventurous and perhaps a little more incorrigible than men. ttnllt a fcofcnn Gttnboat A well-known fiver man Who lives in JeflPefsonviiie recently told a Courier-journal man this story of the war: "It*s a joke," he said, "but it cost the confederacy a cool $100,000. The Confederates had sunk and captured the federal monitor Ittdianola at the head of Hurricane island, some few miles below Vicksburg. It was' at the time the'navy was /attempting to run the Vicksburg batteries. A lieutenant of artillery, with a squad of men in charge of the boat,had been left while they sent back to Red River for assistance to raise the vessel* In the meantime the joke was planned. Who the originator Was is not known, but Admiral Porter received the credit. A bogus ram was built. On an enormoits log raft was erected a .superstructure that .resembled a terrible ironclad. Fence rails and boards were used to make an imitation ironclad casemate gunboat. 'Guns' protruded from the ports and pork barrels stacked high served for chimneys. Underneath them a hearth of earth had been made. Fires were built of fuel Which made the blackest of smoke. Without engines, gun or crew this bugaboo was set adrift a few miles above Vicksburg. On came the 'monster.' Within an hour it had reached the city. Clouds of smoke rolled out of its chimneys, and as it was just breaking day, the time when both sides were anticipating an at,tack, the Confederate sentries 'detected the demon. There was a hurrying and a skurrying, but not a shot broke the stillness until the dummy 1/ad reached a point-blank range. Vicksburg will never be awakened by such another noise. It lasted an hour. Shots raked it and hulled it, but it still floated defiantly. At last the current srrept it nearer to the shore. Then the besiegers read in rudely made letters on one side: 'Se- sesh sold'; on the other side were the letters: 'Confederate States Mail Packet.' In the meantime the discharge of artillery had warned the lieutenant in charge of the Indianola that the hour for action was at hand. In his imagination the lieutenant saw gunboats galore belching forth death and destruction. He would not permit the enemy to recapture the Indianola* Hastily placing all the powder he had in the turrets of the monito-; he applied a slow match and retreated. Only a few moments ela,psed, and all. that remained above decks of the ironclad was a mass of debris. About that time the dreaded 'gunboat' came sailing by and ran onto a sand bar a short distance below. The Indianola could have been raised by the Confederates, and would have been a formidable vessel in their hands had not the lieutenant been so hasty in destroying her. She was armed with two eleven-inch and two nine-inch Columbiads, two of which were destroyed. The other two were recovered and taken up Red river." lulMtS 6* Ing out of the Southern kent-acky regiftenls Met face to and fought each other with teffibl« iesolution.

At Pittsbnrf, two brothers fought ott opposite Sides, and in regiments directly confronting each other.

When the two were alone the dying shepherd said, "I have known the Bible all my life, but I am going, and I am 'afeered to dee.'" Then the pastor quoted the Psalm, "The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want." "Yes, mon," said the shepherd t <*I was familiar with that before you were born, but I aw a-goin,' and-J aw afeered to dee." Then said the pastor, "You know that Psalm says, 'Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, J will fear no evil-" "Yes," said the dying shepherd, "I knew that before you were born, but it does not help me." Then said the pastor, "Poa't you know that sometimes when you were driving the sheep down through the valleys and ravines there would fee shadow's all about you, while was plenty °t sunshine on tb° - " are How an Omaha Girl Communicates with the JToj-biilcleu Sweetheart.

Jacob Frisji, one of the Third Ohio cavalry, applied for a pension, his claim being that he had a hand-to- nand So-lit with his saber for five miles on the 3d of July, 1803, during which he was severely hacked; also shot in the leg. The application fell into the hands of a very critical examiner, who returned it with the following indorsement: "The claimant is required to state, under oath, what caused him to get into a fight with his saber; what kind of a saber it was he got into a fight with; how he happened to have a hand-to-hand fight with it; .whether it had hands; whether there were any witnesses present during the fight; how he managed to get shot while fighting with his saber; whether he believed the saber shot him; whether it shot r anybody else; whether he shot it; how many shots were fired; who fired the first shot; whether the soldier was in the habit of fighting his saber, how long a tims he fought it, and whether he had ever fou'ght any other saber, It should be shown, by competent testimony, whether the soldier shot the saber or the saber shot the soldier. It should also be shown whether they fought for the distance of five miles «.part or the saber was five miles long.'—'American Tribune. ' ' Man for Man, When Colonel Patrick F, Shevlin went to the front, he knew very little about war, His first big fight wa.s'-a.t Gettysburg. He was a little worried about the tactics, and so, befpre the engagement began, 'asHed his superior pffiper. whether the fijfhfwftS going tP. be helter-skelter or roa» *pr roan, "Man fpr wan," quickly quoth the officer, Six hours afterwaid, when the fight was hottest, the officer happened to go to the rear, and was sur' prised to see Colonel Snevlin -seated on the prostrate body of a soldier wha wore the gray. The colonel ioqked happy, smoking a short slay pipe. *»You rascal!" the pfflw shouted; "why dpn't you go iatQ tUe engage-* meat and fight? Are ye« a <?owar.d? Feot-fal Ordeal for rt Otte of the privates in the 90th Indiana regiment having deserted his post, Wj£i|ifted b.y a court martial and found gftttljjijK tha punishment being death flinch a crime. His execution was deferred for some time, attd he Was kept in a painful state of suspense. At last, the time was fixed for his execution, and five regiments were drawn Up in line to witness it while a file of twelve man Were in advance to execute the sentence of death by shooting him. The prisoner was led forward blindfolded, and the usual words of preparation and command were given in a low, measured tone, by the officer in charge of the proceedings. During the interval between the orders, "Take aim," and "Fire," and before the last was given, a horseman rode rapidly up the road, waving in the air a paper, which was understood by all present to be a reprieve. Covered with dust and perspiration, the officer rode hurriedly up to the officer in command, and delivered to him what really proved to be a reprieve. The shout "Reprieve," fell upon the poor soldier's ear, which was' already strained to the utmost in anticipation of hearing to the utmost the last and final word thp.t was to usher his soul into the presence of his creator; it was. too much for him, and he fell back upon his coffin apparently dead. 'The bandage was removed from his x eyes, but reason had taken its flight, and he became a hopsless maniac. He was discharged and sent home to his friends. His death had never really been intended; but. it was deemed necessary for the good order of the army to make an impression, not only upon himself, but the whole brigade; for that purpose the forms of execution were regularly gone through with, in presence of five regiments, and the reprieve arrived in good time, as it was intended. It was sought by this means to solemnly impress upon the whole assemblage of soldiers the necessity of a . strict. observance pi. duty and obedience, under the penalty of ignominious death. It was a fearful ordeal for the deserter, but it was certainly better than to have com-, pleted the tragedy by sending his soul into "that world which no mortal doth know." The Sweetest Sound. The sweetest sound I ever heard Was not the son,'of any bird: , , It was the fierce and awful note That issued from a cannon's throat.
