He heard that in foreign vea there wore birds of richest voico land most luxuriant wings. He scntout iple to catch them nnd bring them [there, and he put them into his cages. Stand back now, and sco this long train of camels coming up t j the king's fate, and the ox trains from Egypt, Hold and silver and precious stones, ; •nd beasts of every hoof, and birds of •very wing, and fish of every scale! flse the peacocks strut under the ce-, dwrtvand the horsemen run, and the eharIoU""whcelt Hark to the orches-; trat, Gaze upon the dancel Not stop- j ping to look Into the wonders of the temple, step right on to the causeway, j •nd pass up to Solomon's palace. Here we find ourselves amid a collection of buildings, on which tho king had lavished tho wealth of many empires. The genius of Hiram, the nrchl- teet, and of the other artists, is here seen In the long lino of corridors, and the suspended gallery and the approach to the throne. Trucerlcd window opposite tracorled window. Bronzed orients bursting into lotus and lily _ pomegranate. Chapiters surround- $jj network of leaves, in which 1ml- tlon fruit seemed suspended, as in Ranging baskets. Three branches—so Joeephus tells us—three branches sculp- 1 tared on the ma bio, so thin and subtle ^hat even the leaves Boomed to quiver. A laver capable of holding five hundred barrels of water, on six hundred brazen OX heads, which gushed with water that Slled the whole place with coolness |pld crystalline brightness and musical p)aah. Ten tables chased with chariot Wheel and Hon and cherubim. Solomon Mt on a throne of ivory. At the seating place of tho throne, on each end of the steps, a brazen lion. Why, my friends, in that place thoy trimmod their condlos with miuffers of gold, and ,they cut their fruits with knives of gold, and they scooped out the ashes with shovels of gold, and they stirred .the altar fires with tongs of gold. Gold reflected in the water! Gold flashing from the apparel! Gold blazing in the erown! Goldl goldl gold! . Of course the news of the affluence •Of that place went out everywhere, toy every caravan, and by wing of every ship, until soon the streets of Jerusalem are erowded with curiosity i seekers, What is that long precession approaching Jeruslom? I think from the pomp of it there- must bo royalty ' lathe train. I smell the breath of the -spice* which are brought as presents, and I hear the about of the drivers, and I set) the dust-covered caravan, • fhowlng that they come- from faraway, -Cry the news up to the palace. The ' queen 1 of Sheba advances, Let all the -' people come out to see. Lot the mighty men of the land come out on the palace corridors. Let Solomon come down the stairs of the palace before the ,queeu has alighted. Shake out the -elnnamon, and tho saffron, and the calamus, and the frankincense, and Pass it into the treasure houee. Take v up; the diamonds, until they glitter in , -7be gueen of Sheba alights. She S»itttejr»the palace. She washes at the bath She sits down at the banquet. 'ith* cupbearers bow.

I must add more than fifty per cent, to what has been related. It exceeds everything that I could have expectod. Tho half—the hnlf was not told me." Learn from this subject, what a beautiful thing it is, when social position and wealth surrender themselves to God. When religion comes to a neighborhood the first to receive it are the women. Soma men Bay It is because they are wetili-tnlnded. I sny it is because, they have quicker perception of what is right, more anient affection nnd enpnetty for sublime remo- tlon. After the women have received 1 the Gospel, then ull thcodlstresscd and the poor of both sexes, those who have no friends, accept JesiiH. fiast of all, ' come the people of affluence and high i social position. Alas, that it Is sol j If there are thoso here to-day who i have been favored of fortune, or, ns I might better put it, favored of God, surrender all yon have and all you ex' pect to be, to tho Lord who blessed | this 'queen of Sheba. Certainly you I are not ashamed to be found in this queen's company. I nui glad that has had His imperial friends in all ages—Elizabeth Christina, queen of I Prussia; Maria Fcodorovna, qneon of i Russia; Marie, empress of Franco; Helena, tho Imperial mother of Constantino; Arcadia, from her great fortunes, building public baths in Constantinople and toiling for the nllevia' tlon of tho masses; Queen Clotilda, leading her husband and thrco thousand of his armed warriors to Christian baptism; Elizabeth of llurgundy, giv Ing her jeweled glove to a beggar, and scattering great fortunes among the Prince Albert singing "Rock of Ages" in Windsor castle, and Queen Vlctorin, incognita, reading the scriptures to a dying pnupor. I bless God that tho day is coming when royalty will bring all its thrones, and music all its harmonies, nnd painting all Its pictures, and sculpture all Its Btatuory. and architecture all its pillars, and conquests all its scepters; and the queens of tho earth, in long lino of ndvnnco, frankincense filling tho air, and the earacls laden with gold, shall approach Jerusalem, and the gates shall bo hoisted, and tho great burden of splendor shall \m lifted into the palace of this greater than Solomon. Again, my subject teaches me what is earnestness in the search of truth. Do you know where Sheba was? It was lu Abyssinia.or some say in tho southern part of Arabia Felix. In either case it wos a great way off from Jerusalem. To get from there to Jerusalem she had to cross a country infested with bandits, and go across blistering deserts. Why did not the queen of Slicba stay at homo and send a committee to inquire about this new religion, and have the delegates report in regard to that religion and wealth of King Solomon? She wanted to see for herself, and hear for herself. She could not do this work by committee. She felt she had a soul worth ten thousand kingdoms like Sheba, and she wanted a robe richer than any woven by oriental shuttles, nnd tho wanted a crown Bet with the jewels of eternity. Bring out tho camels. Put on tho spices. Outlier up the jewels of the throne and put them on the caravan. Start now; no time to be lost. Goad on the cinnels. When I see that caravan, dust-covered, weary and exhausted, trudging on across the desert and among the bandits until it reaches Jerusalem, I say: "The>-o is an earnest seekor after the truth. But there are a great many of you, my friends, who do not net in that way, You all want to get the truth, but you want the truth to come to you; you do not want to go to it. There are people who fold their arms and say: "I am ready to become a Christian at any time; if I am to bo saved I shall be saved, and if I am to be lost I shall be lost" Ah! Jerusalem will never come to you; you must go to Jerusalem. Tho religion of the Lord JBBUS Christ will not come to you; you must go and get religion. Bring out the camels; put on all tho sweet spices, all the treasures of tho heart's affection. Start for the throne. Go In and hear the waters of salvation dashing in fountains all around about the throno. Sit down at tho banquet—the wine, pressed from the grapes of the heavenly Eschol, the angels of God, the cup-bearers. Goad on the camels; Jerusalem will sever come to you; you inuBt go to Jerusalem. The Bible declares it: "The queen of the south"—that 1B, this very woman I am speaking of —"the queen of the south shall rise up in judgment against this generation and condemn it; for she came from the utter- moat parts of tho earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold! a greater than Solomon is horo." Gad help me to break up the Infatuation of those people who are sitting down in idleness expecting to bo saved. "Strive to enter in at the strait gate. Ask and it shall be given you; seek and ye Bhall find; knock and it shall be opened to you.". Take the kingdom of Heaven by vlolonoe. Urge on tho camels| Again, my subject impresses me'wlth the faot that religion is a surprise to anyone that gets it This story of the new religion in Jerusalem, and of the glory of King Solomon, who was a type of Christ—that story rolls on and on, and is told by every traveler coming back from Jerusalem. The news goes on the wing of every ship, and with every caravan, and you know a story enlarges as it is retold, and by the time that story gets dowu into the southern port of Arabia Felix, and the queen of Sheba hoars it, it must be a tremendous story. And yot this queen declares lu regard to it, although she had heard so much and had her anticipations raised so high, the half—the half WUB not told her. So religion is always a surprise to anyone that gets it, The story of grace —an old story- Apostles of grace—an old story. Apostles preached it with rattle of ohuiu; martyrs declared It with arm of flio; death-beds have affirmed It with visions of glory) and ministers of religion have sounded it through the janes, and the highways and the chapels and the cathedrals. It has been out Jnto atjpne; with ;oWsel, and spread o« the fliwjva* ^Mfc and It has, *>m • tq look on the palate ^^Wi "The half—tho half was not tout mm • I appeal to those in this house who are Christians. Compare the idea you had of tho joy of tho Christian life before you became a Christian with the appreciation of that joy yon have now, sinco you have become a Christian, and you are willing to nttcst before angels and men that you never in the dnys of your spiritual bondage had any appreciation of what was to come. You arc ready to-day to answer, and if I give you an opportunity in the midst of this assemblage, you would speak out and say In regard to tho discoveries yon have made of tho mercy and '..<e grace and the goodness of God: "Thu half—the half was not told mel" Well, we henr a good deal about the good time thut IF coming lu this world, when it Is to bo girded with salvation. Holiness on the bells of tho horses. The lion's mano putted by the hand of a babe. Ships of Tarshisli bringing cargoes for Jesus, and tho hard, dry, barren, winter-bleached, storm-scarred, thunder-spilt rock, breaking Into floods of bright water. Deserts into which dromedaries thrust (heir nostrils because they were afraid of the simoom— deserts blooming into carnation roses and silver-tipped lilies. It Is tho old story. Everybody tells it. Isaiah told it, John told it, Paul told it, Kzeldel told it. Luther told it, Calvin told it, John told It—everybody tells it; and yet—and yet when the midnight shall fly the hills, and Christ shall mnrshall His great army, and China, dashing her idols into the dust, shall hear the voice of God, THE LATEST NEWS. GENERAL, NOTES. and wheel into line, and India destroying her Juggernaut and snntching up her little children from the Ganges, shall hoar tho voico of God, anil wheel into line, and vine- covered Italy, and all the nations of tho earth shall hear tho voice of God, and fall into line; then the church which has boon toiling and struggling through the (centuries, robed and garlanded like a bride adorned for her husband, shall put aside her veil and look up Into the face of' her Lord and King, and say: "The half—tho half was not told mel" Well, there is coming a greater surprise to every Christian—a greater surprise than anything I liuvo depicted. Heaven is an old -story. Everybody talks about it There is hardly a hymn in tho hymn book that docs not refer to J it Children read about it In their Sabbath school book. Aged men put on their spectacles to study it. Wo say it is a harbor from the storm. We call it our home. We say it Is tho house of many mansions. Wo weave together all sweot, beautiful, delicate, exhilarant words; wo weave them into letters, and thon wo spell it out in rose nnd lily and amaranth. And yet that pluce IB going to bo a surprise to the most intelligent Christian. Like tho queen of Sheba, tho report has come to us from the far country, and many of us have started. It is a desert march, but wo urge on the camels. What though our feet be blistered with the way? We are hastening to the palace. Wo take all our loves, and hopes, and Christian ambitions as frankincense,and myrrh,and cassia, to the great King. We must not rest. We must not halt. The night is coming on, and it is not safe out here in the desert. Urge on tho camels. I see the domes against the sky, nnd tho houses of Lebanon, and the temples and tho gardens. See the fountains dance in the sun, and the gates flash, ns thoy open to let in the poor pilgrims.

"How funny; but I have had a more surprising experience than th it this very week," Dj tell mo." It was a misunderstanding iu the kitchen not unlike yours. You may re member that 1 once «ot from you a re cipe tor flannel cakes?" "Yea, I think I do." "Web, James is awfully fond of the and so are the children.

Signal Services Observed by the Jews, on the Hurlul of Their Dead. In the cue of almost all Jews, the dissolution ot alliance between the colestiul elemonts and the material body is denoted by a lighted taper (as the symbol of im mortality), a nygenio vessel of water, for ceremonial purification, and a napkin or towel. "Tabara," washing or purification, shortly precedes tho funeral, and is usually performed as a privilege by volunteers. Shroud iB of plain linen or cotton, coffin without ornumont, nnd burial with- ont ostentation, because death levels all distinctions. Therefore poor and rich are entitled to the same respect, and the embarrassment so often occasioned by costly funerals is avoided, Tho last look upon the reniaing is customarily accompanied by a slight rent in the breast of the mourner's gurmont. to express grief. When tbe colliu is deposited in the grave, the bystanders ejaculate "May he (or she) repose in poace" Near relatives und friends in suco ssion, throw earth into the excavation, repeat the ninety-first Psalm, and tben return to their homes. Among tbe reformed Jews, and with mauy of tbe ortnodox, tbe funeral concomitants are of similar stylo and costliness to those of Christians. Wailing for the dead in a purely orthodox Jewish "house of mourning" is inexpressibly sad, and clamorously voices a Borrow which, like that of Rachel, refuses to be comforted. "Shiva," or tho seven days of mourning, begins whim the dom- oicile is reached. During this period, unless unavoidable necessity compel:), tho bereaved do not quit tbe dwelling, or attend to any ordinary vocation. Minyun assembles morning and evening, and prayer iB offered for the repose of the deceased. Friends pay visits of condolence, and deeds of beai Sconce afford some relief to anguish. Including the Shiva, and following it, is a general mourning of thirty days,—o£ twelve months for a parent,—in which is total abstinence from festivity or pleasure. Throughout tbe year of mourning for a parent the bereaved of both sexes attend every service of the Bynagogne, and reoite aloud the kaddiah. Standing in sable garments while others sit, they repeat what iB not a prayer for the dead, but a eulogy of divine sovereignty, an avowal of resignation to tbe All Perfect Will. Jewish law requires separate cemeteries, but is not invariably obeyed.—February Century.. • 1 ^ •• • Onions and peas jaw _ tbe first spring The place where ill that is mortul of a grout, nun is at rest Inn a mournful interest fnr almost every one. The ancients were most thoughtful of tbeir burial places, as tbe pyramids anil columus bj "many an ancient river" testify. The Street of tbe Tombs, in Pompeii, itself an open and untenanted grave, shows tiia 1 people lived, loved and died, and tlie'ti graves were marked as by these whon ideas of immortality are more or'hodox When one thinks of tli-i greatest man of bin time and perhaps of ail time, Most! is there not sadness in tiie thought tnat no man knowctli of his sepulcher untu this day?"

His body was borne to tho church followed by sorrowing Rome, and thn picture, the last work ot his hand, carried before. Victor Emmanuel, "no of the hciues of modern Italy, is also buried in the Pantheon. Two soldiers, old followers of his, are on gun-id always. In spite of the ill feeling, which has not died cut between the Vatican and Quirinnl, solemn requiem mass is held here on each anniversary ot his death. In the Wesslministir abbey of Italy, Santa Croe, Florence, is buried Michael Angelo. with his faco toward the cathedral he loved so well. Galileo is buried in Iho same church. In the protectant cemetery, Florence, is the grave of Elizilwth Barrett Browning. The design of tho monument is not at all pleasing, too heavy und square. It bears the modest inscription. "E. B.

Tliey nre Now ttiicoftaHrully Turned Out Dlreat from tile Tree. Barrels and casks are now successfully turned out from tho tree—that is, without tho wood having to be cut up into numerous HtuveH. By this method, which is known us tho Onclien system, the tree stem is Iirst sawn into lengths to suit thut nf the cask to be made, and those lengths are boiled for about three hours in a closed vessel, which renders the wood soft, iv current of electricity being also passed through tho water during the boiling process. Tho log is taken from tho boiler to the cutting machine—in hich it is fixed as iu a lathe, and brought _p against a long, broad cutting blade— tlio log i8 revolved, tho knife automatically approaches it, and the sheet of wood passes out out of the rear of tho machine through an opening in tho frame just at the edge of the bin JU, as in a plane. The sheet of wood, aays tho N«w York BUR, is drawn from tho machine on to u table, where it iu cut into lengths suitablo for the diameter of the barrel; tbe lengths are taken to a grooving machine, i>nd grooved near the edges for receiving the head and bottom of the cask; the wood is now put into another muchine, which cuts long, narrow, V-piecos, or gussets, out of the edges ut intervals, which give tho necessary double t u por to the rusk Tho sheets ot wood aro finally formed up into a cylinder, und the Hist two hoops driver on by the machine, tbero being thus only one stiivu in Ibe cjBk, nnd consequently, only one joint.
