' Mrs. Cleveland, who wears so little jewelry, is very fond of precious stones, but she prefers to keep them unset—"to play with," as she says. GHOST which means, a soul,' or spirit, has been degraded in common parlance. We talk of ghosts as baleful and frightful, and in a frivolous or superstitious way. But mytext speaks of a Ghost who is omnipotent, and Divine, and everywhere present; and ninety- one times in the New Testament called the Holy Ghost. The only time I ever heard this text preached from was in the opening days of my ministry, When a glorious old Scotch minister came up to help my Village church. On the day of my ordination and installation, he said: "If you get into the corner of a Saturday night without enough sermons for Sunday, send for me, and I will come and preach for you." The fact ought to be known that the first three years of a pastor's life are appallingly arduous. No other profession makes the twentieth part of the demand on a young man. If a secular speaker prepares one or two speeches for a poltlclal campaign, it is considered arduous. If a lecturer prepares one lecture for a year, he is thought to have done well. But a young pastor has two sermons to deliver every Sabbath, before the same audience, besides all his .other work; and the most of ministers never recover from the awful nervous strain of the first three years. Be sympathetic with all young ministers, and withhold your criticisms. A Farewell Sermon. My aged Scotch friend responded to my first call, and came and preached from the text I now announce. I remember nothing but the text. It was the last sermon he ever preached. On the following Saturday, he was called to his heavenly reward. But I remember just how he appeared as, leaning over the pulpit, he looked into the face of the audience, and with earnestness, and pathos, and electric force, asked them, in the words of my text, "Have ye received the Holy Ghost?" The office of this present discourse is to open a door, to unveil a Personage, to introduce a Force, not sufficiently recognized. He is as great as God. He is God. The second verse of the first chapter of the Bible introduces him. Genesis i: 2, "The Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." That is, as an albatross or eagle spreads her wings over her young, and warms them into life, and teaches them to fly; so the Eternal Spirit spread his great, broad, radiant wings over this earth in Its callow and unfledged state, and warmed it Into life, and fluttered over It, and set it winging its way through immensity. It is the tip-top of all beautiful, and sublime suggestlvenesss. Can you not almost see the outspread wings over the nest of young worlds? "The Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." Another appearance of the Holy Ghost was at Jerusalem, during a great feast. Strangers speaking seventeen different languages were present from many parts of the world. But in one house they heard what seemed like the coming of a cyclone or hurricane. It made the trees bend, and the houses quake. The cry was, "What is.that?" And then a forked flame of fire tipped each forehead; and what with .the blast of wind and the dropping fire, a panic took place, .until Peter explained it was neither cyclone nor conflagration, but the brilliance, and anointing, and baptismal power of the Holy Ghost. That scene was partially repeated in a forest KNOWLEDGE . Brings comfort and improvement and tends to personal enjoyment when rightly used. The many, who live better than others and enjoy life more, with less expenditure, 'by .more promptly the world's best products to cal being, will attest the value to health of the pure liquid lixatiye principles embraced ip. the , Syrup of Figs. is due to its presenting in the foremost acceptable and pleasant to the tasteTtfce^ef reshing and truly b§nefigial propertier fe a£ a perfect lax* ative ; effectually clean8ing4]je system, adaptin the nee dispelling colds» headaches v a and permanently curing constipatio Jfc feal given satisfaction to millions and met, with the approval pf the medical profession, becauso it acts on the Kid* % peyg. River and Bpwels withpu* weak* enlng them and it te perfectly free frow every objectionable substance when Rev. John Hasten was preaching. There was the sound of a rushing, .mighty wind, and the people looked to the sky to see if there were any signs of a storm, but it was a clear sky; yet the sound of the wind was so great that horses, frightened, broke loose from their fastenings, and the whole assembly felt that the sound was supernatural and Pentecostal. Oh, what an Infinite, and almighty, and glorious Personage is the Holy Ghost. He brooded this planet into life, and now that through sin it has become a dead world, he will brood it the second time into life. Perilous attempt would be a comparison between the three Persons of the Godhead, They are equal, but there Is some consideration which attaches itself to the Third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Ghost, that does not attach itself to either God the Father or God the Son. We may grieve 'God the Father and grieve God the Son, and be forgiven, but we are directly told I that 4here is pi sin against the Holy Ghost never be forgiven, either the world to come. And while on the streets and' Jesus never and, without getting Holy Ghost Illumination as to its meaning, say, "This Book insults my common sense. 1 cannot understand It. Away with tfie Incongruity!" No one but the Holy Ghost, who inspired the Scriptures, can explain the Scriptures. Fully fealtee that, and you will be as enthusiastic a lover of the old Book as my venerable friend Who told me in Philadelphia last, week that he was reading the Bible through the fifty-ninth time, and It became more attractive and thrilling every time he went through it. 1ft the saddle-bags that hung across my horses back as I rode from Jerusalem dowli to the Dead sea, and Up to Damascus, 1 had all the books about Palestine that I could carry; but many a matt oil hlfl knees in the privacy of his own room, has had flashed upon him more vivid appreciation of the Word of God than ma.ny a man Who has Visited all the scenes of Christ's birth, and Paul's eloquence, and Peter's imprisonment, and Joshua's prowess, and Elijah's ascension. 1 do not depreciate any of the helps for Bible study, but 1 do say that they all together come infinitely short without a direct communication from the throne of God in response to prayerful solicitation. We may find many interesting things about the Bible without especial illumination, as how many horses Solomon had in his stables, or how long was Noah's ark, or who was the only woman whose full name is given in the Scriptures, or which is the middle verse of the Bible, and all that will do you no more good than to be able to tell how many bean poles there are in your neighbor's garden. The learned Earl of Chatham heard the famous Mr. Cecil preach about the Holy Ghost, and said to a friend on the way home from church, "I could not understand it; and do you suppose anybody understood it?" "Oh, yes," said his Christian friend, "there were Uneducated women and some little children present who understood it." I warrant you that the English soldier had under supernal'In- fluence read the Book, for after the battle of Inkermann was over he was found dead with his hand glued to the page of the open Bible by his own blood, and the words adhered to his hands as they buried him: "I am the Resurrection and the Life, he that belleveth in me, though dead yet shall he > live." As a Human Ilecongtrnctor. Next consider the Holy Ghost as a human reconstructor. We must be made over again. Christ and Nlco- dem'us talked about it. Theologians call it Regeneration. I do not care what you call it, but we have to be reconstructed by the Holy Ghost. We become new creatures, hating what we once loved, and loving what we once hated. If sin were a luxury, It must become new creatures, hating what we associations, we must prefer good associations. In most cases it is such a complete change that the world notices the difference, and begins to ask, "What has come over that man?" Whom has he been with? What has so affected him? What has ransacked his entire nature? What has turned him square about?" Take two pictures of Paul: one on the road to Damascus to kill the disciples of Christ; the other on the road to Ostia to die for Christ. Come nearer home, and look a.t the ,man who found his chief delight in a low class of club-rooms, hiccoughing around the card-table, and then stumbling down the front steps after midnight and staggering homeward; and that same man, one week afterward, with .his family on the way to a prayer-meeting. What has done it? It must be something tremendous. It must be God. It must be the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost comfort, I think, generally comes in the shape of a soliloquy. You find yourself saying to yourself, "Well, I ought not to go on this way about my mother's death. She had suffered enough. She had borne other people's burdens long enough. I am glad that father and mother are together, in heaven, and they will be waiting "to greet us, and it only a little while, anyhow,.and God makes no mistakes;" or you soliloquize, saying, "It is>hard to lose my property, I am sure I worked hard enough for it. But God will take care of us, and as to the children, the money might have spoiled them, and we find that those who have turn out best, and it will all be well if this upsetting of our worldly resources leads us to lay up treasures In heaven." shook the Atlftfltle OceM. ftiftfc power shook the eartft. that power could take this entire audience into the peace of the Gospel quicker than you could lift your eyes heavenward. Come, Holy Ghost! Come, Holy Ghost! He 13 come! He is here! 1 feel him in my heart. There are thousands who feel him in their hearts, convicting some, Saving some, sanctifying Some. The difference 1ft evangelical usefulness is not So much a difference Inbraift, in scholarship, or elocutionary gifts, as in Holy Ghost power. You will not have much surprise at the exthaor- dinary career of Charles G. Flnney as a soul winner, if you know that soon after his conversion he had this experience of the Paraclete. He says: "As I turned, and was about to take a seat by the fire, I received a baptism of the Holy Ghost. Without any expectation of it; without ever having the thought in my mind that there was any such a thing for me; without any recollection that I had ever heard the thing mentioned by any person in the world, the Holy Ghost descended upon me in a manner that seemed to go through me, body and soul. Indeed, it seemed to come in waves and waves of liquid love, for I could not express it in any other way. it seemed like the Very breath of God. I can recollect distinctly that it seemed to fan me like immense wings. ,No t words can express the wonderfu.1 and $1 bottJea, but ft JB man* ___ by the OaUforniaFig Syrup ,Ck>;, whose name >s prpt§<J,91 every nd being to IP; "t4S Syrup of jo» »| offers d, Jn this it is wonder w^ you-- hear the Christ used in heap the wprfls, Holy Ghpst, J ppeak of the Hply QhPSt as Interpreter, as ft human recpnstructpr, as a. solace for the brpken-hearte<?, ae a . preacher's reinforcement. ana Tfie Bibje is a mass of contradictions an affirmation of Kpiy crnqjjt hejps us to Eible taw* rt ™™ 8P* <tVf '- Or you soliloquize, saying, "It was hard to give up that boy when the Lord took him. I expected great things of him, and, oh, how we miss him out of the house, and there are so many things I come across that make one think of him, arid he was such a splendid fellow; but then what an escape he has made from the temptations and porrows which come to all who grow up, and It is a grand thine to have him safe from all possible harm, and there are all those Bible promises for parents who have lost children, a:id we shall feel a drawing heavenward that we could not have otherwise experienced," And after you have said that you get that relief which comes from an outburst of tears, i dp not say to you, as some say,' do not cry, God pity people Jn trouble whP have the parched eye«ball, and the dry eye-Jld, and can not shed a tear.

I Wept aloud with joy and love. These waves came over me, and over me, and over me, one after the other, until I recall I cried out, 'I shall die if these waves continue to pess over me.' I said, 'Lord, I can not bear any more.' " Now, my hearers, let five hundred of us, whether clerical or lay workers, get such a divine visitation as that, and we could take this world for God before the clock of the next century strikes one. Instances of Power. How many marked instances of Holy Ghost power! When a black trumpeter took his place in Whitefleld'a audience proposing to blow the trumpet at a certain point in the service, and put everything into derision, somehow he could not get the trumpet to his lips and at the close of the meeting he sought out the preacher and asked for his prayers. It was the Holy Ghost. What was the matter with Hedley Vicars, the memorable soldier, when he sat with his Bible before him in a tent, and his deriding .comrades came in and jeered, saying: "Turned Methodist, eh?" And another said, "You hypocrite! Bad as you were I never thought you would come to this, old fellow." And then he became the soldier evangelist, and when a soldier in another regiment hundreds of miles away telegraphed his spiritual anxieties to Hedley Vicars, saying, "What shall I do?" Vicars telegraphed as thrilling a message as ever went over the wires, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved." What power was being felt? It was the Holy Ghost. And what more appropriate? for the Holy Ghost is a "tongue of fire," and the electricity that flies along the wires Is a tongue of flre. And that reminds me of what I might do now. From the place where I stand on this platform there.are invisible wires or lines of Influence stretching to every, heart in all the seats on the main floor, and up into the boxes : and galleries, and there are other innumerable wires or lines of influence reaching out from this place into the vast beyond, and across continents, and under the seas, for in my recent journey around the world I did not find a^country where I had not been preaching this Gospel for many years through the printing press. So as a telegraph operator sits or stands at a given point, and sends messages in all directions,'and you only hear the click, click, click of the electric apparatus, but the telegrams, go on their errand, God help me now to touch the right key, and send the right message along the right wires to the right places! Who shall I first call up? To whom shall I send the 'message? I guess I will send the first to all the tired, wherever they are, for there are so many tired souls. Here goes the Christly message, "Come unto me all ye who are weary and I will give you rest." Receiving: the Spirit ot Truth, Who next shall I call up. I guess the next message will be to the fatherless and widows, and here goes God's message, "Leave thy fatherless children, I will preserve them alive, and let thy widows trust in me," Who next shall I call up?., I guess my next message will be to those who have buried members of their own families, and here it goes, "The trumpet shall sound and the dead shall rise." Who next shall I call up? I guess the next message will be to those who think themselves too bad to be pave£, Here It goes, "Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man >hig thoughts and let him return unto the Lord who will have mercy and unto pur God who will abundantly par- dpn," Who next shall I call up? I guess it will be those who may think I have not yet touched their case, Here It goep, "Whosoever, whosoever, Whosoever will, let him come."

The New York Tribune says: "The habit of taking 'headache powders' is increasing to an. alarming extent amcaig a great number of women throughout the country. These powders as their name indicates, are claimed by the manufacturers to be a positive and speedy cure for any form of headache. lu many cases their chief/ ingredient is morphine, opium, cocaine or some other equally injurious druj* having a tendency to deaden pain. The habit of taking them is easily formed, but almost impossible to shake off. Women usually begin taking them to lieve a.'ragiug-Jieadaclie, aud soon resort tOi powder to alleviate .aiiy little.pniu orache>thi-,,,- may be subjected to, 1 and finally Hke"'the mor-'' phjueoropiiini fiend, get into the habit of taking them regularly, imagining-that they are in pain , if they happen to miss their regular dose." In nine cases out of ten., the trouble i in the stomach and liver. Take a simple laxative'and liver tonic and remove the offending ^matter which deranges the stomach and... causes the headache. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are composed entirely /of tlife, purest, concentrated, vegetable extracts. One Pellet is a dose; su.gar-coated, easily swallowed; once useq, always in favor. They positively cure sick headache and remove the disposition to it. Mr: E. VAKGASON, of Oiler Lake, Lapcer Co., '- Mich., writes: "I not infrequently have au attack of the headache. It usually comes on in the forenoon. At my dinner I eat n>y regular meal, and take one or two of Doctor Pierce's Pleasant Pellets immediately after, and in the course of au hour my headache is cured and no bad effects.
