SATURDAY EYEHIKG TELEGRAPH ALTON, ILL, J1TO IS Hobtton seems to lir utinrp ;is n rnlsor. WoBllll InslBt thai It should be called the- "Yankde-SpfltiUeo" war. When Rudynrd Kipling tired his Invest ponm lie evidently wns "lomlod for licnr." It Isn't exactly for Ils land value thnt. Hiiglnnd wants upper Afflcn. It evidently lias Hand enough.

Kiln WliiH'lcM 1 Wllcov has published nn Interesting article on "How to lie Lovable Though Old." What does Ella Unow about that? TotiiU'SBcc now comes to Hie front wll.li a missing cnshlor who in graphically described an "0 feet 2 Inches tall nml about $1-1,000 short." A Colorado editor who translates the national motto, E pliu-lbus iimnn—"out of money, one," evidently shoots much nearer the mark than ho Imagines.

The Austrian authorities would not allow Mark Twain's remarks at the Vienna peace eonfermine to be publlsh- od. Those suspicious foreigners cvl- tlcntly are afraid that American huuior Is loaded. The New Orleans Picayune remarks plaintively that "people who go to bed <iii empty stomachs have small prospects for rest." Yes, for truly refreshing sleep there Is no basis like a good liair mattress. It seems that several eminent ]>ln> clans have come to tho conclusion Hint fatigue is a disease. That is well. Now If tliey will discover the bacillus of fatigue ami then perfect a system of inoculation against it—what a gay old world It will be. That man Anthony who, when blown up on I ho Maine, saluted Captain Sigsbee and said, "Sir, I have to report that tho ship has been blown up and is sinking." evidently is totally devoid o£ fear in the face of peril. IIu was married the other day. Street sweepings to the estimated .amount of. three million'tons are collected even- year In the cities of the United States. Most of this material Is cither used for "Hllir.g" or thrown .•iway; but the Department of Agriculture loarus that In some places farmers secure tho sweepings for fertilizing purposes, and that the farmers In such cases, with few exceptions, report excellent results. Since the disposition of «iich refuse Is sometimes a serious problem, the. fact seems to be worth consideration on the part of town and country alike. One of our worst faults as a p'ooplc, Is a persistent disregard of the truth that to prevent waste In aill such ways Is to increase wealth. Tho civil war came to an end in April, 3S05, but the national debt in creased more than two hu|idrod million dollnvs before the end of August, whei It reached Its highest point, In spite of the most extensive and all-enibracint, tax system tho world has ever known The war with Spain lias bqen much less costly; but It Is a conservative estimate that'less than pne-lmlf the total ex liense was Incurred befpro^.tlie terms o; liencc were offered to Spain. If that be so, the war cost, directly, two hundred millions, Iqdlreofly, the .larger arnij needed to occupy, iiew possessions wll muse a largo permanent charge on thi revenue, nud we may assume that tlu •war taxes have come to stay.

Walnuts are also grown all over ''rnnce as an article of food, for tho purpose of making oil, and to adulterate miter. The peasants oat them with iroad nibbed with garlic and they aro osisldered lo In; nn excellent substitute or meal. lioth In France nnd In Italy Imnnds are grown largely, though not ised for food as extensively as chcst- uls and walirttls. In Iluly there nro xleusive almond orchards.

The common nd cheap peanuts of the Untied States in 1 : nut available, tu Kuropo. and prices ire so high as to make them a luxury. When we smile at the excessive conservatism of the Kngllsh In refusing to idopl a decimal system of money, and sticking to their Inconvenient reckon- tig In pounds, shillings and pence, are we sure that we aro not throwing stones through our own glass house? How many ounces arc there In a loundV Twelve' of one kind lu one sort of n pound, sixteen of another kind In (mother sort. Three feet to a yard; live nnd a half yards to a rod. Thirty-two [juans In a bushel. An acre cannot bo made into a perfect square, but is a ilocc of ground ten by sixteen rods, making forty-throe thousand, live hundred and sixty square feet. A cubic vard contains nine cubic feet. These illustrations show what a waste of time nnd energy there is lu converting out- own weights and treasures from ouo unit to another. It Is all needless waste, as we know from the enso with which wo deal with our money unit. Our readers will perhaps bo tired of being told that In all the civilized world, England, Russia and the United States aro the only countries which do not use the metric system for all purposes. If wo are asked why we do not'use it wo annot reply that our method is bettor. We can give no bettor excuse than that we are too conservative, that tho change is "too much bcUier," that we aro too liixy to conform to a system which Is as far superior to that we cm- ploy as the dollars and cents of our money aro more convenient than the British pounds, shillings and pence. It would not be a bad Idea for the young people of the land to organize themselves into a metric league, to urge on tho change which must come sooner or later. Perhaps, the present generation of statesmen is loo ; tdd-fogyish" to bring about the reform. Let tho schoolboys nud schoolgirls familiarize them selves with the metric system, omploj It in their games, and make their opinion of it known by monster petitions to the powers that be. BABY'S EDISON'S CRADLE. Edition's ABSiatants Presented Him with This Automatic Tcitiler. When Thomas A. Edison's second daughter was born his technical assistants lu tho laboratory nt Orauge pre soiitod him with plans for a cradle intended to save Mrs. Edison much of the worry and trouble usually experienced by mothers. Several other ideas were submitted to tho committee, but the thought of the wizard ambling up am down the room In the dead of night, occasionally stepping on a semi-submerg ed tack, was too much for them, so the cradle was decided on. It was called the "automatic electric baby tender." It wns an ordinary cradle with ingon! ous devices for the child's comfort at tached. Immediately above tho spo where the baby's head would lie was a diaphragm, somewhat like a telophon receiver. If tho Infant should start cry ing at the very llrst wail coramuuica tio'i was established between the dla phragm and an electric clock. At the same time the cradle was sot rocklnfc, by means of a small motor. If Die re monstrance continued beyond a cortali time the clock released a lever and an arm attached to the side of tho cradle (operated by what Is called a boll craul lever), carrying a nursing bottle, was swung over tho baby's mouth. If bun ger was not the trouble and the walls continued another arm on tho opposite side swung over the child's mouth with paregoric. At tho same time thp elec trio current was turned into a set o 1IAHY KDISON'S ELKCTIIIO CIIAIII.K. magnets planed around tho cradle, am any pin which might be causing th trouble would bo at once removed. I tho yells continued tho "thirty-third do greu" was applied. Two arms, lylnj Hat In the cradle under the baby, wer slowly raised and the child turned ovei Then an electric spanker fastened t the footboard proceeded to do Its wori with neatness and dispatch. However, Mr. Kdlson persists In ru gimllng the baby's cradle as a joke. France, Is a vast siibterrar of ehumpagno."

Llt«, I N this discourse Dr. Tnlmnge takes nn optimistic view of ninny things thnt nre usually accounted ns inexpli- nble In human experience and shows us hat even trouble nnd nlllielion mny not .. wholly without their brighter side; oxt, Psalm xlix.. -1. "I will open my dark nying upon the hnrp." The world is full of the inexplicable, tlie nipassablc, the unfalliomablc, the itisur- iioiintablc. We cannot, go three steps In iiy direction without coming up ngninsl liard wall of mystery, riddles, pnrndoxos. irofundilies. Inbyrinths. problems Hint wo iiiinot solve, hieroglyphics thnt we cannot leeipher, anagram* we cannot spell out. phiiixes Hint will not. speak. For that n David in my lest proponed to take- up some of these somber nnd dnrk things nud try to set them to sweet music. "1 vill open my dnrk snying on n hnrp." So look oft" upon society nnd find people in inlmppy conjunction of circumstances, mil they do not know what it means, and hoy have n right to ask: Why is this? Why is that? And I think I will bo doing a good work by trying to explain some of hose strange things and make you more •ontent with your lot, nnd 1 shnll only be inswering questions Hint hnve often been nskod mo or Hint we hnve nil nsked our- delves while I try to set these mysteries- o music nnd open my dark sayings on n inrp. Why Aro the Useful Taken? Interrogation the first: Why docs Go :ake out of this world those who are useful and whom we cannot spare nnd loavi alive nnd in good health so ninny who ar. only n nulsiuicc to the world'.' 1 thought I would begin witji the very toughest of al :he seeming inscrutaliles. Many of the nost useful men and women die at 30 or •JO years of age, while you often fiiid_use ess poo] ile alive nl (10 nnd 70 nnd SO. .lolin Cureless wrote to Bradford, who wns sooi to be put lo death, snying, "Why doth Uoi suffer mo nnd such other caterpillars to ivo Hint cnu do nothing lint consume tin ulms of the church nnd lake nwny so many worthy workmen in the Lord's vine rard'jf" Similar questions lire often asked Here nre two men. The one is a uobb character nnd n Christian man. II chooses for a lifetime companion one .wll bus becnilenderly reared, and she is wor thy of him and lie is worthy of her. A merchant or fnrmor or professional mm or mechanic or nrtist he toils to cducnt nnd renr his children. He is succeeding but he has not yet established for his family a full competency. He seems Indispensable to Hint household, but one duy, be- ndy three things Hint cnn hrenk off n rlinln—- n hummer, n file or n lire nnd rouble is nil three of them, The greatest vriters, orators nnd reformers not much f their force from trouble'. Whnt gnve Washington Irving thnt exquisite tender- less nnd pathos which will make his tooks fnvorltes while tho English Inn- gnngo continues to be written nnd spoken'.' \n enrly heartbreak Hint he never once nontioiiod, nnd when, thirty yenrs after i he dentil of Mntildn Hoffman, who \vns o hnve been his bride, her fntlier picked ip n piece of embroidery and said, "Thnt .s n piece of pour Matilda's workman«hip," Wnsninglon Irving sank from hilnr- ty into silence and walked nwny. Out of lint lifetime grief the treat author dipped lis pen's mightiest re-eitloreonr-nt, Calvin's "Institutes of 1'cligioii," thnn which ii more wonderful hook was never written Iiy human hand, was begun by the author nl 'J."i years of ngc because of the pcr.se- I'lition by Francis, King of France. Far- nilay toiled for all lime on a salary of I'SO -i year find candles. As cverj brick of the wall of Babylon wns stamped with tin- letter N, standing for Nebuchadnezzar, so very part of the temple of Christian achievement Is stamped with Hie letter T, standing for trouble. All Is for,the ItCBt. When in Knghind n man is honored with knighlhood, he is struck with the !l.-i( of the sword, lint those who have come to Icnitrhthood in tiio kingdom of Hod were first struck, not wilh Hie lint, of the sword, but with the keen edge of the soimeior. To build Ids magnificence of diameter, Pnul could not: have spared one lush, one prison, one stoning, one niintlienia. one poisonous viper from the hand, one shipwreck. What is true of individuals is true uf nations. The horrors of (he American Kovolution gnve this country this side of Hie Mississippi river lo independence, nml the conlliet between 1-jiiglnnd nml France gnve the most of this country west of the Mississippi to the United States. France owned it. but Napoleon, fenring thnt Kng- Innd would tnke it, prnclicnlly mnde n present to tho United States, for he received only $1.1,000.0011 for Louisiana. Missouri. Arkansas. Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota. Colorado, Dnkoln, Montana, Wyoming and the Indian Territory. Out of the fire of the American Revolu- lion came this country enst of the Mississippi, out of the Kuropenn wni- eiimo thnt west of the Mississippi river. The British empire rose to ils present overlow- cring grandeur through gunpowder plot, nnd Guy Fnwkes' conspiracy, nud North- ntnpton insurrection, and Walter Raleigh's bohending, nnd Bacon's bribery, nud Cromwell's dissolution of pnrlinnient. nnd tho battles of Kdge Hill, nud the vicissitudes of centuries. So the earth itself, before it could become nn appropri- nte nnd beautiful residence for tlie human family, hnd. according to geology, to bo washed by universal deluge nnd scorched nnd nmde incnndescont by uiiivcrsnl fires, and pounded by sledge hammer of icebergs, nnd wrenched by enrthqunkes that split continents, and shaken by volcanoes Hint tossed mountains nnd passed through the catastrophes of thousands of yenrs before Paradise became possible, nnd the groves could shake out their green banners, nnd the first garden pour its carnage of color between the (lilion and the fore he hns paid off the mortgage on hisi uj, 1(U ,] !( .|. Trouble a good thing for Hi house, he is coming home through n Klrong northeast wiinlfNfid n c ' !lil1 strikes through him, and four days of pneumonia end his earthly career, nud the wife nnd children go into a struggle for shelter and food. His next door neighbor is n mnn who, though strong and well, lets his wife support him. He is around :it the grocery store or some general loafing place in (lie evenings, while his wife sews. His boys are imitating bis example and lounge and swagger nnd swear. All the use that man is in that house .is to rnve because the coffee is cold when he comes to a late breakfast or to say cutting things about his wife's looks, when he furnishes nothing for her wardrobe. The best tiling thnt ould happen to that family would be that man's funeral, but lie declines to die. He lives on and on nnd on. So we have all noticed that many of the useful are early cut off, while the parasites have grout vital tenacity. I take up this dark saying on my hnrp nnd give three or four thrums on the string in the way of surmising nnd hopeful guess. Perhaps the useful man was taken out: of the world because lie ami his family were so constructed that they could not have cmjnred some great prosperity that might have been just ahead, nnd 'they all together might have gone down in" the vortex of worldliness which every year swallows up 10.Oil!) households. ' And so hcSvent while he wns humble and consecrated, ami they were by the severities of. life kept close to Christ nnd fitted for usefulness here nnd high seats in heaven, nnd when they meet nt iHst before tho throne they will ucknowl- rocks, n good thing for nations as well as a good thing for individuals. So when you push jipvsust me. with a slinvp interro- gntion point, do the good snffcrV I there is one wing t'ifit vim will sint: cvpry hour your firs* Jen \enrs hi heaven, itnd the refrain uf lhal sun;; vill I e. "I nm sis-lad (Jod did nol lei me have it my own way!" Ymir ease v, ill be all ti\er| up in heaven, nnd there will be siu-h n levermi! of euiiMtlojis (hut we cnn linrdly lind each other for Homo time. Some of us who have lived in first-rate houses here and in tirsl-rale neighborhood* will be found, ho- eniiKo of our bikewnrnincss of earthly service, living on one of I he buck BtreiMs of (he eoloKtinl city, nnd cb-nr down nt the end of it nl No. 80H or (KMI or l.'ori. while some who hnd unnltrnotU-o earthly nbi'ides, nnd n crumped one at that, vsill in the heavenly eily be in n house frunling I lie roynl pln/.n, right by the inq>eiinl fountain or on the heights overlooking the river of life, the clmrlols of snlvnlion halting nt your door, while tllo«c visit yon who nre moro thnn conquerors, nnd those who nre kings and queens unto (tod forever. Von. uiy brother, nm) you. my sister, wlin have il no linnl here, will hnv<« it nn line and grand there thnt yon will hardly know yourself nnd will feel disposed to dispute your own Identity, nml I ho first time 1 see you there 1 will cry out, "Didn't 1 (ell yon so when you out down there in the pew nnd looked incrcdnloti* bee; yon thought it too good to be true'.'" And yon will answer. "Von wen- right; III half was not told me!" So I open your dnrk Buying of despondency nnd complaint on my gospel harp nnd give yon just bar of music, for 1 i)u nut prclend lo be i much or n player. "Tin; l.nmb which i.-s in the midst of the throne shall lead (hem to livinir fountains of water, nnd (!ml shnll wipe nway nil (ears from their eyes." Hnl. 1 must confess. I nr.i a little perplexed how some of you good Christians are going to get through tin- gale, because Ihore will he so ninny then.' In irrect yon, and they will all want lo shake hands at once and will all want the first kiss. They will have heard that you nre coming, nnd they will nil press around to welcome you nud will want yon to say wlieth- -r you know them after being so lung Killed. Adjourned lo ICtcrnity, Amid the tussle nnd romp of reunion I 'ell you whose hand of welcome you hnd liottor first clasp and whose cheek is entitled to the first kiss. It Is the hand nnd (he cheek of him without whom you mid never hnve got there nt ell. the Lord .Te-sns. the darling of the skies, ns ho cries out, "1 hnve loved thee with nn over- lasting love, nnd the fires could not burn t. nud tho floods could not drown it." Then you, my dear people, having no more use for my poor harp on which I used to open your dark sayings, and whose chords sometimes snapped, despoiling the symphony, you will Inke down your own bnrps from the willows Hint grow by the eternal water courses nnd play together those celestial airs, some of the names of which aro entitled "Thi> King in His Beauty," •The Lund Thnt Wns Far Off." And as the last dark curtain of mystery is forever lifted it will be ns though nil the oratorios Hint were ever heard.had boon rolled i'.ito one, and "Israel in Egypt," nnd ".lephthnh's Daughter," and Beethoven's "Overture in C," nnd Kilter's first "Son- ntn in D Minor," ami the "Creation," and the "Messiah" hnd been blown from the lips of one trumpet or been invoked by the sweep of one bow or hnd dropped from the vibrating chords of one hnrp. But here I must slow up lest in trying to solve mysteries I add-to-the mystery that we hnve already wondered nt—name- ly, why preachers should keep on nftcr all ;)ie hearers nre tired. So I gather up into one grcnt armful nil Iho whys nnd hows nnd wherefores of your life nnd mine which we hnve not hnd time or the ability to answer and write on them the words, "Adjourned to Kternity."

At tin- opon the dark saying on a hnrp and, though I can neither play an orgnn nor n cornet nor hautboy nor bugle nor clario- net, I hnve taken some lessons in Hie gospel harp, nml if yon would like lo hear me 1 will piny you these: "All thinus work together for good to those who love t,od." "Now no clinstoning for the present scem- etli to be joyous, but grievous nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby." "Weeping may endure for ii night, but joy in the niornin Conquering ICvil. Interrogation third: Why did the good God lot sin or trouble come into tho world when he might have kept them out? My reply is, He had a good reason. lie hnd reasons that he 1ms never given us. 11 had reasons which he could no more make ns understand in our finite state than the fntlier. starting out on some great and elaborate enterprise, could make the 2- your-old child in its armed chair comprehend it. One y:'>s to demonstrate what grandeur of chnriK'ler may be achieved on earth by conquering evil. Had there been no evil lo conquer and no (rouble to c sole, (hen this universe would never have known nn Abraham or a Moses, or Joshua, or an Kxekiel, or n Paul, or Christ, or a Washington, or a John Milton, or a John Howard, nnd 1.000,001) victories which have been gained by the con- rated spirits of all ages would novel ted them. On the other hnnd, the useless man lived on to 00 or (10 or 70 yenrs because nil the onse he over can have lie must hnve in this world, nnd you ought not therefore begrudge him his earthly longevity. In all the ages there hns not u single loafer ever entered heaven. Troubles of the Good. Interrogalion the second: Why do good people have so much trouble, sickness, bankruptcy, persecution, the three black vultures sometimes putting their fierce bonks into one set of jangled ncrvesV 1 think now of n good friend I once hnd. He wns u consecrated Christian mini, nn older in the church, nnd us polished a Christian gentleman ns ever walked Brondwny. First his general health gave out, and he hobbled around on u cane, an old man nt 40. After awhile paralysis struck him. Having by poor health been compelled suddenly to quit bnsinoss, In- lost whnt property lie hnd. Then his beautiful daughter died; then n son lic- viiine hopelessly demented. Another son, splendid of mind and commanding of presence, resolved Hint he would tnke euro of his father's household, but under the swoop of yellow fever nt Fernniulinn, Fin., lie suddenly expired. So yon know good men nnd women who hnve hnd enough troubles, you think, to crush fifty people. No worldly philosophy could take Hiich n trouble nnd set it to music or play it on violin or (lute, but I dare to open thai dark saying on n gospel harp. Von wonder that very consecrated people have trouble? Did yon ever know nny very consecrated man or woman who linil not' hnd greut IvtuibleV Never! It was through their troubles sanctified thai they were made very good. If you find anywhere In this eily a limn who has now and always bat* had perfect health and never lust a child, and hns alwn.vs been popular, and never had business struggle or misfortune, who is distinguished for goodness, pull your wire for a telegraph messenger boy nml send me- word, and 1 v I like liuU iiini 1:1 vor will be. Wl those arrogant. solf-:-onocitcd creatures who move about without sympathy for others and who think more of n St. Bernard dog, or an Aldcruey cow. or n Southdown sheep, or a Berkshire pig thnn of a limn? They never hnd nny trouble, or the trouble was never sanctified. Who HIV those men who listen with moist eye as you toll them of Buffering, and who have u pathos in their* voice, nnd a ki»due*« In their manner, nnd nn excuse or (in alleviation for those gone astray? They are Hie men who have graduated at the Hoynl Aciidcmy of Trouble, and they have the diploma written In wrinkles on their own connlenauees. My! my! What heart- uchcs thov had! What tours they have wept! AVIiiil Injustice they have mini-red! Tim mightiest lulliiencc for purllien- tlon nnd salvation Is trouble. No diamond fit for u crown until it In cut. No whi-ut fit Cor ureud U!l it U ground. There »re of the heaven thnt it is. I will not snj Hint I nm glnd Hint sin nud sorrow di enter, but I do say Hint I nm glnd that nfter Ciod hns given nil his ronsons to nn nssomblod universe he will he more honored thnn if sin nnd sorrow hnd never entered, nnd thnt the unfnllen celestials will be outdone and will put down their trumpets to listen, and It will bo jn heaven, when those who hnve conquered sin and sorrow shnll enter, ns it would he in n sninll singing nchool on earth- if Thalhe-rg and Uott- sehnlk nnd Wagner nnd Beethoven nnd Hheinborger nnd Sehumnnn should all nt once enter. The immortals that hnve been ehnnting 10.000 yenrs before the throne will nay ns they close their II- hrellos, "Oh, if we could only sing like- that!" Hut Cod will sny to those who hnvo never fallen nnd consequently have- not been redeemed: "You must be silent now. You hnve not the qunliliontion for this nnthein." So they sit with closed lips nnd folded liiinds. nnd sinners saved by- grace take up the harmony, for the Bible says "no man could Icnrn Hint song lint the hundred nnd forty nnd four thousand which Were redeemed from the earth." KnvorllcH Disciplined. But now I come nearer home and put a dark saying on Iho gospel l.nrp. a style- of question Unit is linked a million limes every year.

Human Nature. -Human • nature is not bad. It is always striving 1 to do bolter, but there nre powers for evil In men hardly suspected, Init these are always kept in chock, the Son of man controlling the forces of human nature. —Rev. Dr. McConnoll. Kpiscopaliau, Brooklyn, N. Y. Training.—Look at thi 1 thousands of soldiers now ourumpird. They have enlisted to serve their country, and to be ready for the conflict it Is necessary that they be well trained. You seo them daily drilling, and so must we prepare for life's conliicts.—Archbishop Itlordan, Roman Catholic. San Francisco, Cal. Man as a Builder.- Kvery man has his master. Kvery mind Is under the control of sonic one opinion or conviction. Though ho be the architect of his own fortune, the arbiter of his own destiny, every man builds according to some plan, some law of life which Is absolute master.—Rev. Dr. Bristol, Methodist, Washington, D. C. A Good Hearer.—Tho good hearer will get some good out of the poorest preacher. Only hear him aright, not as a lecturer, an entertainer, a debater, but us a man who, from the ground of bis own faith and his sense of human need, Is trying to speak the word which will help you.—Rev. J. C. Adams, Unl- vcrsalUt, Brooklyn, N. Y. Bad Bargains.—Men aro continually making bad bargains. Ksuu sold his birthright for a moss of pottage; for a momentary pleasure; men sncrllleo honor, homo, wife, children and even wealth and position. Human destiny Is often changed by a single thought In u moment, of time.—C. S. Mason, Independent, Dos Angeles, Cal.

Since ive five real'y only one lesson to Jeremiah himself, li.e lenchor should do all that is possible Ii bring out tlie cllttf- neler uf tliis ureales; of Hebrew prophf-ta. This N more iiiqioi-t.iiit than to enlarge upon the incident in the lesson, inlerestiiiK as that, may be. It is more Importnnt thnn to spend the lime drawing lesson* for the present day of the kind suggested by the lesson title-—though such lesHonsI an- certainly needed. The. point is. that in one-linlf hour the teacher who nltompts to give a class even a sketch of Jei-emlrtli's character arid work will be unable to dwell on any incident. The thing to be emphasized, because most often neglected, is the moral heroism of Jeremiah's career. It. is one of the- time-honored blunders of history Hint .Tereminh wns n "weeping prophet," n mourner primarily, a Hebrew Cassandra whom we do well to rend fop 1 pathos and mild melancholy. The poetical composition known ns tho "Lamentations. of .If.-reminh" mny be- responsible for this. But a careful study of the prophet's col- lecled writings and the slory of his lifts brings out his true mnnliness, his patient endurance, his unselfish pntriotism, his purity of heart nnd devotion lo Uod. Efe wns universally hnted nnd reviled by Ms contemporaries and has been mlsiindctr fctood by care-less renders'over'since.

Perhaps there was nothing qon* .tained in the roll that Hie people had |»0t[ heard many times before, but the solemn circumstances nnd the pertinency of the message made it seem now. The king's "winter house" Vitts simply* tho lower and more protected part ol bill palace ns distinguished from the more airy rooms used In warm weather; and the "hearth" of.Ulo oJd version was a "brayier" (revised version) or metal pan containing charcoal for henting purposes. Instead of "leaves" wo may rend "columns." The roll \\ip written in narrow perpendicular columns which were successively revealed ns the manuscript was unrolled sidewise. The "penknife" was n tool for shnrpeiiing the roods with which the writing wns done. This reckless net of the king simply shows his bitter definnce of divine warnings. The rest of the lesson is simplo enough. It is vnin to attempt .to destroy the word of Uod or indeed the word* of godly men. One is reminded of the dying remark of the English martyr, Liilimer, ns he wns about to he burned ut the stake: "Master Itidley, we hnve lighted to-day such u candle in Knghind ns I trust bjf God's grace shull never be put out." Teaching Hints. The best lesson to get from this passage nnd its context is the unmistakable lesson of moral heroism and fearless devotion to duty as shown tu Jeremiah's whole career. Thero is, of course, nn excellent opportunity, if time is available, to adapt the lesson to modern times by showing bow various people have tried to destroy the Bible nml have failed. Besides the d«strut-tire critics whom every lonelier wilt think of, let us not forget the people who attempt to destroy the Bible by simply noglectijig.it, pulling it on tho shelf, or pretending to believe it without attempt- 1 ing to live by it. Which class is more dangerous: the criiics who spend their lives nnnlyy.ing Hie Bible and trying to pnne thnt it was constructed ill n certain. wav. or the i^rlstinns who pretend to reff- ula'ie Iheir lives nnd their prone-hlng by il and never give il serious study or comprehend its deeper meaning'.' .\t I.-- "Tin 1-1.1.
