DoWltt Talmage Delivers a Thanksgiving DlBOOurao. Whs Edward M. Field is not the only child ol Cyrus W. Field who hits brought sorrow to the father's heart. He was not tin first to become insane. Alice Field, the sec osd daughter in a family of seven, ban been kept in a prlvalo retreat near New York for more than twenty-five yearn. Another daughter, now the wife of Jumps Bruyn Andrews, is said ut one time to have betrayed alarming sympton* of men tal collapse, but sinco then Bho has happily married and there H no present nispicion of her mental FOIIIKJUW. All the well-wuhem of Mrs. James G Blaine, Jr.,—and thpy ore legion—are hoping that tlin Into Mrs. Lily Mnc.lester Laugh ton retm-mbi r. i| Mrs. Blaine in her will. Mrs. Lnughton was a connection of pretty Marie Minim* , nnd it was under the former's chuperonugo in Washington that lovely Muiie Kevins hnd the misfortune to meet "Jimmic" ljiuine Mrs, Laughton was very fond of tier young relative, and as Bho vas enormously rich, it is possible she has left souie practical token of her uffection to young Mr*. Blaine. The an nual income of Mrs. Lauguton was something liko $100,000, and out of this abundance slu> bus probably made some bequest to the pretty young creature who naa suffered so much. Their is b-jt ono hoir to the enormous fortune left by Mrs Laughton, and that is her daughter, the child of her first marriuge. who's now the Marquise Ptdrosu. ExGoviiiiNOH HoAHl) tells an uuquse- tioncd truth when he declared that "every pound of oleomargarine is a choat and a fraud." It certainly is as fur as the aC' tual consumer is concernoj.

This oily hodtru-podge is an imposition, Tuu hotel keeper or reatuura teur may perhaps know tho true character of the substance wheih ho imposes upon his patrons ris buttor, but the Utter uro ignorant of the deceit, and it is they who have the bet right to know the truth Mr. Hoard aigues against the oleoinurgU' rine humbug because of its injurious t fleet upon the dairv interests, but the general public's) special concern is of that per tonal natuiM which revolts at sham and to which the wry thought of substituting for the pure p'od .ct of cre.ni mi oleaginous counter fei. of questionable ingredients is repulsive in tho extreme. THI official figures of tho vote in New York show it to have been about '200,000 smaller than the vote for governor in 1888, but 140,000 larger than the vote for governor in 1885, Mr, Flower received 582, 894 vrteinnd Mr Faesett 533,935, making Fliwer's plurality 47.034. Flower's vote was 67 000 le » than Hill received 8818, while Kassott foil 97,000 below Mil er in the same year, ulthougli Miller ran almost 20,000 void below Harrison Flower ran 7,082 votes ahead of Sheohan while Vrooman had 6,621 more votes than Fatsett. One candidate on the democratic ticket tad a larger plurality than Flower, —Rosendu'o, - tho attorney general-elect j while on the republican ticket the cundi dates for lieutenant governor, secretary of state, treasmer and state engineer received more votes than Fassett. The socialist labor candidate for governor receivod 14,651 votes, moro than half in New York and Brooklyn, while the prohibitionist receivod 30,858, only 2,800 in these two targe cities. The prohibition vote in Now York Bet-ins to be a flxi d qurntity, for it was 80,21)1 in 1886, and 80,867 in 1888. OXRTJS W. FIELD. Ono of the most pathetio spectacles which the American people are called upon to behold today is that in whioh the tener ble Cyrus W. Field is the principal figure. The father of the Atlantic cable, the progenitor of elevated railway traffie, a nan whose glorious enterprises will make his name forever honored, has been lying very, very low broken-hearted, penniless and longing tor rest in the silent grave. A week or two ago he was prosperous well and happy. The bride of bis youth was by his aide to comfort and •are**) his ohildren were, a* he supposed, in joyous circumstances, and he himself felt secure in the possession el great wealth, and was deeply grateful for the blessings and honors which Bad so long been his. la the short time since that period of happiness was upon him bis lovlug wife, the lender and faitbfu companion^ fifty jeuri, has pawed away) fail eldest ion, the father's pride and hope, baa gone down in the maeUtrorn of stock speculation carrying bio own and his father's fortune with hint and himself become intone, and bis daughter and daughter-ln law, tbe latter the wife of tho ruined son, are supposedly on beJs from whioh they van •over again arise in. Ii(k Crushing and terrible have been tbe domeatic oCSlotlou ^blonbliTe tbui with overwhelming iwllt- MH and in ttuoutag*uoc«*slon corn* upon thii old man, forcing blw into* of nroaliiUoA lwm*bfel» it Wouili^rrul OooilnnHs of Gntl In Matting I'ruvUInn for tho HustAiiunos and Comfort of All of llln Creatares. The following dlHCOurse was ilcliv- en>d by Hev. T. DoWitt Talmnao in the Uri 'oldyn tnbomacle, from the text: I', 'iu,La mill nil cattlo; croopmir thtnKH nml fly- liiK fuwl; luth yoancr man anil nmkli'lis; old mon anil nhlldnm; lot tlftm prnlso tho nuino of thr Lord.—Psalm erlvlll., 10, VI and 1:1. What u nceiio it was when liistThura- duy at tlui cull of the president anil gav- nors, this nation assemlilcd to chant Hie prnixes of God. Hut the day was ton short lo celebrate the Divine good' IIOSH of such u ywnr. Tlio sun did not rlso ovor Itrooltlyn until oneinlimtebe' fore seviiii o"clock that morning, and It fcot four o 'clock mid tliiity-flve minutes that evening. What n sinntl Kpuco of timo in wliich to mediate upon twelve months of bonufnetions. So I mid to that day this Sabbath morning service, anil with the fruita and harvests of the earth still glorifying the pulpit and the galleries, ask you to continue tho ro- nenrsM of tho Divine goodness. lty a sublime egotism man has como to appropriate this world to himself, when tbe fact Is that our race is In a small minority. The instances of human life, us compared with instances of animal life, arc not one to a million. We slinll enlarge our ideas of God 's goodness mid come to a better understanding of tho text if, boforo wo come to look at. the cup of our blessing, we look at the goodness of Ood to the irrational creation. Although nature is out of joint, yet even In its disruption 1 am surprised to find the almost universal happiness of the animal creation. On a summer day, when the air and tho grass are most populous with life, yon will not henr a sound of distress unless, perchance, n, heartless school boy has robbed a bird's nest, or u huntor has broken a bird's wing, or a posture has been robbed of a lnmb and there goes up a bleating from the flocks. The whole earth is filled with animal delight—joy feathered and scaled, and horned, and hoofed. The bee hums it, the frog croaks it, tho squirrel chottors it, the quail whistles it, the lark carols It, thn whale spouts It The snail, the rhinoceros, tho grizzly bear, the toad the wasp, the spider, the shellfish have their homely dolights—joy as great to them as our joy is to us. Goat climbing tho rocks, anaconda crawling through tho jungle, bnffalo plunging across tho prairie, crocodile basking in tropical sun, seal puffing on the ice, ostrich striding across the desert, are so many bundles of joy, the.y do not go moping or melancholy; they are not only half supplied; Qod says thay ar« filled wttli good. The worm squirming through the sod upturned of plowshare and the anti racing up and down tho hillock are happy b.y day and happy by night Take up a drop of-water under tho ml croscojie, and you find that within it thero are millions of creatures thai swim in u hallelujah of grliiilnoss. The sounds in nature that are repulsive tc our cms are often only utterances ol Joy—the growl, tho croak, the bark, the howl. The good Ood made theat creatures, thinks of them ovor, and will not let a plowshare turn up • mole's nest or fisherman's hook transfix a worm until, by eternal deoree, its time has come. God 's hand feeds all these broods and shepherds all these Docks and tends all these herds. Ht •woolens HID clover top for tho oxen 's taste; ami pours out. erystalllno wateri In mossed oups of rock, for the kind to drink out of OH his way down the crags, and pours nectar Into the cup o) the honeysuckle to refresh tho hunt' mlng -blrd; and spreads a banquet of • hundred fluids of buckwheat, and leti the honey-bee put his mouth to any cup of all the bunquot, and tells tho grasshopper to go nuywhero ho likes, and give the flocks of Heaven the oholoe ol all tho grain-fields. The sea anemone, \ half animal, half flower, clinging tc the rook In mid-ocoan, with its ten< tacles spread to e.aleli its food, has the owner of the universe to provide for it. We are repulsed at tho hldeousuess ol the elephant, but Ood, for tho comfort and convenience of the monster, putf forty thousand distinct muscles in IU proboscis. 1 go down on the barren seashore and •ay: "No animal can livu in this' place desolation;" but all through the sands are myriads of little inseota.that itip with happy life. I go down by the marsh and sny: "In this damp place, anil In these loathsome pools of Btag- mi ut water, there will bo tho quietness of death," but, lol I see the turtles on the rotten log sunning themselves, and hoar tho bogs quake with multitudinous life. When the unfledged robin* are hungry God shows the old robin where she can get food to put into their pun mouths. Winter is not allowed to come until the ants have _ granarled their harvest, and tho squirrels have filled their cellars with nuts, Ood •hows tho hungry Ichneumon where it may And the crocodile's eggs, and in arctic climes there are animals that leys, which run nmoog>lhc hills; they give drink to every beast of the field; tho wild asses quench thlr thirst." Amid the thunders of Nlnni God uttered the rights of oattle, and said that they should have a Sabbath. "Thou Shalt not do tiny work, thou, nor thy cattle." Ho declared with Infinite emphasis that tho ox on tho threshing- floor should have the privilege of eating some of the grain OH ho trod It out, and muzzling was forbidden. If young birds wore taken from the nest for food, tho despoiler's life depended on tho mother going free. God would not let the mother-bird suffer in ono day tho loss of hor young and her own liberty. And ho who regarded in olden time the conduct of man toward the brutes to-day looks down from Heaven and is interested in every minnow that swims the stream, and every rock that cleaves the air, and every herd that bleats, or neighs, or lows la tho pasture. Why did God make all theso, and why mnko them so happy? How ao- count for all this singing, and dancing, and frisking amid the irrational creation? Why this heaven for the aniraul- oule In a dewdrop? Why for tho condor a throno of Chimborazo? Why the {Utter of the phosphorus in the ship's wake on the sea, which is said to be Duly the frolic of millions of insects? Why tho perpetunl chanting of so many voices from the irrational creation in earth, and air, and ocean—beasts, and all cattle, creeping things, and flying fowl, permitted to join in the prals? that goes up from seraph and archangel? Only one solution, ono explanation, ono answer—Ood Is good. "The earth is full of tho goodnoss of tho Lord." 1 tako a step ihlgher, and notice the adaptation of Wio world to the comfort and happiness of man. Tho sixth day »f creation hnd arrived. The palace of the world was mndo, but thero was no king to live in it. Leviathan ruled the deep; the unglo tho air; tho lion the Sold; but thero was tho scepter which thould rule all? A now stylo of being was created. Heaven and earth wore represented In His nature. His body from tho earth beneath; his soul from the Heaven above. The one reminding aim of his origin, the other speaking of his destiny—himself tho connecting link between the animal creation and angelic intelligence. In him a straugi commingling of tho temporal and etor- aul, the finite and infinite, dust and glory. The earth for his floor, and Heaven for his roof; God for his Fathen eternity for lils life-time. The Christian anatomist, gazing upon the conformation of the human body, exclaims: "Fearfully and wonderfully made." No embroidery so elaborate, no gnuzo so ilelicato, no color so ex- quislto, no mechanism so graceful, no handiwork so divine. So quietly and mysteriously does the human body perform its functions, that it was not until five thousand years after the creation of the race that the circulation of th« blond was discovered; and though anat omlstsof all oountrles and ages havt been so long exploring this castle ol life, they have only begun to understand it Volumes have been written of th« hand, Wondrous Instrument! With II we give friendly recognition, and grasp tho sword, and climb tho rock, and write, and carve, and build. It constructed the Pyramids, and hoisted the Parthenon. It made the harp, and then •truck out of it all the world's minstrelsy. In it tho white marble of Pen- tellcon mines dreamed Itself away into Immortal sculpture. It reins in the swift engine; it holds the steamer tc its path In tho sea; it snatches the fire from Heaven; It feols the pulse of the sick child with Its delicate touch, and makes the nations quake with its stupendous achievements. What powei brought down the forests, and made the marshes blossom, and burdened the earth with all the cities that thunder on with enterprise and power? Four fingers and a thumb, A hundred million dollars would not purchase for you a maohine as exquisite and wonderful aa your own hand. Mighty handl In all lta bones and muscles and Joint* I learn that God is good. Behold tho oye, whioh, in its photo- graphlo gallery, In an instant catches the mountain and the sea. This perpetual telegraphing of the nerves; these joints, that are the only hinge* that do not wear out; these bones and muscles of the body, with fourteen thousand different adaptations; these one hundred thousand glands; theBO two hundred million pores; this mysterious heart, contracting four thousand times •very hour—this chemioal process of digestion; this laboratory, beyond the understanding of the most skillful philosophy', this furnace, whose heat la kept up from the oradle to the grave; this faotory of life, whose wheels, and •plndles, and bands are God-direoted. If we oould realize the wonder* of our physical organization, we would be hypoohondrlaos, fearing every moment that some part of the machine would break down. But there are men here who have lived through seventy yearn, and not a nerve has ceased to thrill, or a muscle to oontraot, or a lung to breathe, or a hand to manipulate. I take a step higher and look at man 's mental constitution. Behold the benevolence of. God in power* of perception, tiounil m keenness of nostril, tho eagle in far-reaching sight, the rabbit in quickness of hearing, the honey-bee in delicacy of tongue, the spider in fineness of touch. Man's power, therefore, consistent not in what he can lift, or how fnst he can run, or how strong n wrestler ho can throw—for in these respects the ox, tho ostrich and the hyena are his superior—but by his reason ho comes forth to rule all; through his ingenious contrivance to outrun outlift, ontwrestle, ontsee, ontbenr outdo. At his all-conquorlng decree, the forest that had stood for ages stops aside to let him build his cabin and cultivate his farm. The soa which raved and foamed upon the race has become a crystal pathway for commerce to march on. The thunder-clond that slept lazily above the mountain is made to como down and carry mall-bags. Man, dissatisfied with his slowness of advancement, shouted to the water and the fire: "Como and lift!** "Come and drawl" "Come and holpl" And they answered: "Ay, ny, we como;" and they joined hands —the fire and water—and tho shuttles fly, and the rail-train rattles on. and tho steamship comes coughing, panting, flaming across the deep, lie elevates the telescope to the heavens, and, as easily as through the stethoscope the physician hears tho movement of the lung, the nstroaomor catches tho pulsation of distant syBtcmB of worlds throbbing with life. Ho takes the microscope, and discovers that there are hundreds of thousands of anlmal- sula living, moving, working, dying within a circle that could be covered with tlie point of a pin—animals tc which a rain-drop would be an ocean, s fire-fly lasting enough to give them light to several generations. You see that God has adapted every, thing to our comfort and advantage. Pleasant things for the palate, music for tho oar, beauty for the eye, aroma for tho nostrils, kindred for our affections, poetry for our taste, religion fot our soul. We are put in a garden, and told that from all the trees wo may cat except here and there ono. Ho glvei the sun to shine on us, and the wateri to refresh us, and food to strengthen us; and tho horbs yield medicine when we are sick, and tho forests lumber when wo would build a house, oi cross the water in a ship. Th« rocks nro transported for our foundation; and metals upturned for oui currency; and wild beasts must give ui covering; and tho mountains must b< THE LATEST NEWS. GENERAL NOTE'S.

Another inventor has come to the frobt wiih an invention which he believes will rival even those of Edison's, and bring to .nan- kind generally a degree of benefit which will be in direct inveso proportion to tho woe inflicted upon the individuals commonly known as the coal barons. What he has :o offer is no leas than a scheme to manufacture a coul wliich will bo superior in its results to either bituminous or anthracite coul, to]which the world has been so long accustomed to look for its chief supply of fuel. So many vast conceptions have been already brought to tho attention of the public only to end in disappointing failures that ivory now great scheme is apt to bo rcuftrded with suspicion. We havo not suffered from the aeely motor project and the many plans for navigating the air, to say nothing of tho many ideas for submarine crafts, without having our confidence in Buch mutters seriously impaired. TUB NEW CLAIMANT. When I had satisfied myself as to the plants which would best serve my purposo I made a study of them until able to extract from them the very qualities I desired. N« sooner had 1 dono so, and mndo an effort to combino the various re- sulU obtained, when, presto! all disap peared together, 11E STUDIED NATURE. "My next labor was to discover some system of preventives which would obviate this inexplicable and disastrous evaporation of that which I had obtained from my plants with such unremittent toil. One year and a half ago I succeeded in this endeavoi, now I have enough of this power obtained from my plants properly mixed with the lignite to produce a million tons of coal at an average cost of 91 a ton. . "The matter I obtain from the plants 1 reduced to a pulp, which, after having had all the moisture extracted from it by being placed in a number of revolving boilers, is again tali en in hand, and, after being hardened, is reduced to tho power ana mixed with the powdered lignite. The precess includes a method by which tho chemical compound and tho lignite are submitted to a process of 150 degrees Fahrenheit in a largo room." Mr. Edclmaun claims to have already purchased a large track of land in Texas comprising six hundred acres, which bo says is rich in lignito, and to have received an offer for his invention from one corporation there which agrees to take 300,000 tons a year off liis hands.—N.
