IIU Arms or Iioro, I.Ike the Cedar's Branches, are Rpreail Ont to Enfold and Shelter the Weary— Whosoever Will alar Come. The following' discourse wns delivered by Rev. T. DevVltt Talmage in tho Brooklyn tabernacle, the text being: A goodly cedar, and under It Rball dwell all (owl of evory wing.—EzoMol xvil.,a>. The cednr of Lebanon is u royal tree. It stands six thousand foot above tho level of the sea. A missionary counted the concentric circles and found one tree three thousand flvo hundred yeurs old—long-rooted, brond-branched, all the year In luxuriant foliage. Tho same branches that bent in the hurricane that David sow sweeping over Lebanon, rock to -day over tho head of the American traveler. This monarch of tho forest, with its leafy fingers, plucks tho honors of a thousand years and sprinkles them upon its own uplifted brow, ns though some grout hallelujah of Heaven had boon planted upon Lebanon, and It were rising up with all its long-armed strength to take hold of the hills whence it came Ohl what a fine place for birds to nest inl In hot days they come thither—the Jhglo. tho dove7"tifc ^>S;low7 tho sparrow and the raven.

O No wonder that Audubon, with his gun, trnraped through all of the American forests, in search of new specimens. Geologists have spent years in finding the truck of a bird's claw in tho now red sundstono. There is onough of God's architecture in u snipe's bill or a grouse's foot to confound all the universities. Musicians havo, with clefs and bars, tried to oatch the sound of tho nightingale, and robin. Among the llrst tilings that a child notices, is a swallow at tho eaves; and grandfather goes out with a handful of qruinbs to feed the snow-birds. The Ulble Is full of ornithological allusions. Tho birds of the Bible aro not dead, and stuifed, like those of the museum, but living birds, with fluttering wings and plumage. "Behold the fowls of the air," says Christ. 'Though thou exalt thyself ns the eagle and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thenco will I bring thee down," oxeluiras Obndiah. Gavest thou the; goodly wings unto the peacocks?" says Job. David de- soribes his desolation by saying: "I am like a polican of the wilderness; i am like an owl of the desert; I watch, and um as a sparrow alone upon the housetop." "Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed time; and the turtle and tho crune and tho awallow observe tho time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the Lord"—so says Joreraiah. Ezelciel in ray text intimates thet Christ is the cedar, and the people iron? all quarters nre the birds that lodge among tho branches. "It shall bo a goodly cedar, and under it shall dwell all fowl of evory wmg." As in Eze- kid's time, us now—Christ is a goodly cedar, and to Him are flying all kinds of people—young and old, rich and poor; men high-soaring as the eagle, those fierce as the raven, and those gentle as the dove. "All fowl of evory wing." First, the young may come. Of the eighteen hundred and ninety-two years that havo passed since Christ came, about sixteen hundred havo been wasted by the good in misdirected effort Until Robert Rnikes came there was no organized effort for saving the young. We spend all our strength trying to bend trees, when a little pressure would have beon sufficient for the sapling. We lot man go dsyrn to the very bottom of sin before wertF»-t0.11ft.them up. It Is a great deal easier to keep a train on the track than to get it on when it is off. The experienced relnsman oheckB the fiery steed at the first jump, for when he gets in full swing, the swift hoofs olioking fire from the pavement and the bit between hi* teeth, his momentum ia irresistible. It is said that the young men must be allowed sow their "wild oats." I have notieod that those who BOW their wildcats seldom try to raise any other kind of crop. There are two opposite destinies. If you are going to Heaven you had better take the atraight road, and not try to go to Boaton by the way of New Orleans. What is to be the history of this multitude of young pooplo around me today? I will tain you by the hand and show you a glorious sunrise. I will not whine about this thing, nor groan about it; but come, young men and maidens, Jesus wants you. His hand la love; His voice Is music; Hla smile is Heaven. Religion will put no handcuffs on your wrist, no hopples on your feet, no brand on yonr forehead man or woman to nave grown om without religion. Their taste is gone. The peach and grape have lost their flavor. They say that somehow fruit docs not taste as It used to. Their hearing igeta defective, and they miss n great deal that is Bald in their presence. Their friends have all gone, and eve ,7body seems so strange. The world seems to go away from them, and they are left all alone. The^r begin to fool in the way when you come into tho room where they arc, and they move their chair nervously and say: "1 hopo I am not in the way." Alas! that father and mother should over be in the way. When you wero sick, and they sat up all night rocking you, singing to you, administering to you, did thoy think that you wero in the way? Are you tired of the old people? Do you •nap thura up quick and sharp? You will bo cursed to the bono for your in- gratitudo nnd unklndness. Ohl It is hard to bo old without religion—to foel this world going away, and nothing hotter coming. If there be any here who havo gone far on without Christ, I address you differentially. You havo found this n tough world for old people. Alas! to have uelics and pains, and no Christ to soothe them. I want to givo you a enno better than the one you lean on. It is the cano that the Bible speaks of, when it says: "Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort mo." I want to givo you better spectacles titan those yon_nmvJaul£»t }(^iflj £fJj j tt 'ili tho spiritual "eyesight of Divino grace. Christ will not think that you are in the way. Docs your head tremble, with palsy of old ago? Lay in on Christ's bosom. Do you feel lonely to destroy a bird's nest, but (tenth docs not hesitate to destroy one. There was a beautiful nest in tho next street. Lovingly the parents brooded over it. There were two or three llttlo robins in the nest. The scarlet fever thrust its hot hands into the nest, and the birds are.gone. Only those are Bafc who havo their nests in tho goodly codar. They hang over them "the feathorB of the Almighty." Oh! to havo tlioso soft, warm, eternal wings stretched over ust Let the storm bent, and tho branches of the cedar toss on the wind—no danger. When & storm comes you can Bee tho birds flying to tho woods. Ere the storm of death comes down let us fly to the goodly cedar. Of what great varieties Heaven will be made upl There come men who once were hard and cruel, and desperate in wickedness, yet now, soft nnd changed by grace, they come into glory: "All fowl of every wing." And here they come, the children who were reared in loving homo circles, flocking through tho gates of life: "All fowl of every wing." These wero white, and came from northern homes; these were black, and ascended from southern plantations; these were copper- colored, and went up from Indian reservations: "All fowl of every wing." So God gathers them up. It ia astonishing how easy it is for a good soul to enter Heaven.

I think Christ has them. They are safe in His keeping. Vory soon ne will take you where they are. I tako hold of your arm and try to lead you to a place where you can put down all your burden. Go with me. Only a llttlo while longer, und your Bight will oome again, and your henr- ing will oome again, and with tho strength of an immortal athlete yoxi will step on the pavement of Heaven. No crutches In Uenvcn; no sleepless nightB In Heaven; no cross looks for old people. Dwelling thure for ages, no one will say: "Father, you know nothing about this; stop back, you are in the way." Oh, how many dear old folks Jesus has put to sleep! How sweetly He has closed their eyes! llow gently folded their arms! How He has put His hand on their silent hearts and said: "Rest now, tired pilgrim. It is all over. Tho tears will never start again. Hush! hush!" So, llo gives His beloved sleep. I think the most beautiful objoet on earth is an old Christian—tho hair white, not with the frosts of winter, but the blossoms of life. I never feel sorry for a Christian old man. Why feel sorry for those I upon whom the glories of the eternal world are about to burst? They are going to the goodly cedar. Though their wings are heavy with ago, God shall renew their strength liko tho eagle, and thoy shall make their nest in the cedur. "All fowl of every wing." Again: The very bad, tho outrageously sinful, may come. Men talk of the grace of Uod as though it wero BO many yards long and so many yards deep. People point to the dying thief as an encourugemont to tho sinner. How much bettor it would be to point to pur own ease and Bay: "If God saved us He can save anybody." There may be those here who never had one earnest word Baid to them about their souls. Consider me as putting ray hand on your shoulder and looking in your eyes. God has been good to you. You ask: "How do you know that? He has been very hard on me." "Where did you come from?" "Home." "Then you have a home. Have you over thanked God for your homo? Have you children?" "Yes." "Havo you over thanked God for your children? Who keeps them safe? Wore you over tiok?" ."Yes." "Who made you well? Have you been fed every day? Who feeds you? Put your hand on your pulse. Who makes it throb? Listen to the respiration of your lungs. Who helps you to breathe? Have you a Bible in the house, spreading before you tbe future life? Who gave you that Bible?" Oh! It baa been a Btoiy of goodness and meroy all the way through. You have been one of God's pet children. Who fondled you, and .oaressed you, and loved you? And when you went astray, and wanted to come baok, did He ever refuse? I know of a father who, after his son oame baok the fourth time, said: "No, I forgave you three times, but I will never forgive you again." And the son went off and <U«d. But God takes back His children the thousandth time as cheerfully as the first As easily as with my hand- kerehlef I strike the dust off a book, God will wipe out all your sins. There are hospitals for , 'incurables." When men are hopelessly sick, they are sent there. Thank GodI there is no hospital for spiritual incurables. Though you had the worst leprosy that ever struck a soul, your flesh shall oome again like tho flesh of a little child. O, this meroy of Godl I am told it Is an ooean. Then I place on it four swift-sailing craft, with compass and eharts, and ohoioe rigging and skillful navigators, and I tell them to launoh away and discover for me the extent of this ocean. That oruft puts out in one direotlon, and sails to the north; this craft to the south; this to the east; this to the west. They crowd on all their oanvass and sail ten thousand years, and one day oome up the harbor of Heaven, and I shout to them from the beach, "Have you found the shore,?" and thoy answer; "No shore to God's meroy!" Swift angels, dispatched . from the throne, attempt to go across it. For one million years they fly and fly, but then come baolf and fold their wlugs at the foot ot the throne, and cry! "No shore, no shore to God's moroy I" Morcyl Meroy I Moroy! I sing it I preach it, I pray lb., Here I find i man bound bund and foot to the devil, but with one stroke of the hammer of God's truth the chains fall off and he is free forever, Meroy I Meroyl Mercy! There is no depth it can not fathom, there Is' no height it can notsoale, there is no infinity it can not compass, I take my stand under this goodly cedar and see Um flocks flying hither..

Have John put it in two of the morning papers, that my friends may know that I am gone. Gooil-by;" nnd as quick an that, God bud taken him. It is easy to go when tho time comes. There aro no ropes thrown out to pull us ashore; there are no laddors let down to pull us ashore; Christ comes, and takes us by the hand, nnd says: "You have had enough of this; come up higher." Do you hurt a lily when you pluck it? Is there any rudeness whon Jesus touches the cheek, and the red rose of health whitens into the lily of immortal purity nnd gladness? When autumn comes and tho giant of tho woods smites his anvil, and the leafy sparks fly on the autumnal gale then there will he thousands of birds gathering in the tree at the corner of tho field, just before departing to warmer climes, and they will enll and sing until the branches drop with the melody There Is a better clime for us, and 'by and by we shall migrate. We gather in the brandies of the goodly cedar in preparation for departure. You heard our voices in the opening song; you will hear them In the closing song—voices good, voices bad, voices happy, voices distressful "all fowl of evory wing." Hy and by we shall be gone. If all of this audience be saved—as I hope they will by— I see them entering into life. Some have had It hard, some have had It easy. Some were brilliant, some were dull. Some were rocked by pious parentage, others have had their infantile cheeks scalded with the tears of some woe. Some orawled. as it were, Into the Kingdom on their hands and knees, and some seemed to enter in chariots* of flaming lire. Those fell from a ship's mast, these were crushed in n mining disaster. Thoy are God's singing birds now. No gun of huntsman shall shoot them down. Thoy gather ou the trees of life and fold their wings on the branches, and, far away from frosts nnd winds, and night, they sing until the hills are flooded with joy and tho skies drop music, and the arches of pearhsend back tho echoes —"All fowl of every wing." Bonolil the saints bolovou ot Goil, Washed aro tholr robes In Josus' blood Brighter thnn nngolti; lo. they shine. Their glories splondld and sublime. Through tribulation groat thoy oame, Thoy bore tho cross and acornod tho shame; Now, In tho henvonly tempest blost, With God they dwell; on Him they rest. While everlasting agoa roll, Btornsl love shall feast tholr soul, And scenes ot bliss, fovover now, Rise In Biiocossion to thoir view.

A Story of Surpassing Interest. FOREIGN. OLD AUNT PEGGY. She Wan Never Ooius; to Quit tier Good Old Master. When the war was over, old Aunt Pe^- gy went to Monsieur, and said: "Massa, I ain't never gwine to quit yer. I'm gittin' ole an 1 feeble, an' my days in few in dis heah Ian' o' sorrow .an' ain. All I axes is a H'le co'ner whar I ken set down an' wait peaceful fu' de 'en Monsieur and madame were very much touched at this mark of affection and fidelity from Aunt Peggy. So, in the goneral reconstruction of the plantation wbioh immediately followed the surrender a nice cabip, pleasantly appointed, was set apart for the old woman. Madame did not oven forget tbe very oomfortablo rocking-chair in which Aunt Peggy might ''set down," us she herself eipressed it, W wait fu'' do en'." Shu has been rocking ever since. At intervals of about two years Aunt Peggy bobbles up to the house, and delivers the stereotyped address which has become more than familiar: 'Mistress, l's come to take a las' look at you all. Lo' me look at you good. La' me look at de ohillun—de big ohillun an' de ii'le ohillun, Le' me look at de piotera an' de photygraphts an' de piany an' eve'ything 'to' its too late.

Alter such a visit Aunt Peggy invariably returns to her oabin with a generously filled apron. The scruple, which monsieur one time felt iu supporting a woman for' so many years in idleness has entirely disappeared. Of late bis attitude towards Aunt Peggi is simply one of profound astonishment —wonder at tbe surprising age which an old black woman may attain when she sets her mind to it, tor Aunt Peggy is a hundred and twenty-five, so she aayu. It may no- be true, however. Possibly she is older,—Harper's Young People. The first republican convention of the Ohootaw nation was held at South McAlister. Ind. Ter.

Mass Ataetluic to Consider Means for Hollering- Distress. BEIILIN, March 10.—Meetings vtere held at Laipsic today at which 2,000 men out of work wero present. A number of plans for bettering the condition of work- ingtnen were debuted. It was finally decided that delegates be sent to tho municipal authorities, asking that publio works for the relief of tbo distress of the people be immediately stuited. At Cologne unemployed workmen formed themselves imo a procession and marched in a body to the town hall. Here the burgomaster appeared and made a mollifying speech, saying lha authorities were doing all in their power to alleviate the great distress and he boutd means would Boon be reached to accomplish this end. He promised to tr) t> find work for every ono and in tho meantime em ployment would be given to Vlo -emeii who weie married nnd had families to support, When tie burgomaster finished the crowd cheered him bturiily aval then quietlydlspmed. At Donmuud, a town of Prussia in Westphalia, much Hbff -sriag also exists among the laboring classes. Over two thousand men employed in the iron works wero thrown out of work within a week and others have received notice that their services may have to be dispensed with within a shoit time as there are indications of a trade paralysis and all works may shut down entirely. The test of the wire gum system which recently took place at Birdsboro, Pa., definitely lifts this system out of the realm of experiment—at least so far as moderate calibres are concerned. It shows that the 5 inch gun, made of segmental tubes, wire wound, cannot be exploded by any amount of powder that can be got into its obamber. When Uncle Sam can sit oo tbe breech of an American invented and American made gun and defy the world to produce its equal this country will have won back a {ood deal of its former naval prestige. It juoks as though the wire wound gun will toon give Uncle Sam this opportunity.

About oight yearB ago I began to feel distress in my Btomach and consulted tovoral doctors about it. They all said it was dyspepsia, and for dyspepsia I was treated by various doclori m different places, nnU took all tho patent medicines I could boar of that claimed to be a cure for dyspepsia. But I continued to grow gradually worse for four years. Then I began to bave pain in my back and legs and became consoiou* that my legs were getting weak and my step unsteady, and then I staggered when I walked. Having received no benefit from the use of patent medicines, and feeling that I was constantly growing worse. I then, upon advice, began Ihe use of electric bcUs, pads and all the aiany different kinda of electris appliances I could hear of, and spent hundredJ of dollars for them, but they did me no good." (Here Mr. Quant vhowed the Journal reporter an electric mil of undeiwear, for which he paid »124 .):"In tbo fall of 1888 the doctors advised a change of climate, Jso 1 went to Atlanta, Gi., and acted as agent for the E-tey O-gan Company. While there 1 look a thorough el -ctrio treatment, but it only seeuiod 1 1 aggravate my disease, and t he only relief I could get from the tburp and dUUeiting pains was to take morphine. Tbe pain was BO intonse at times that it teeni'id as though I could not etund it, and I almost longed for death as lhe only certain relief. In Septi inber of l£88 my legs gave out entirely, nnd my h it, eye was drawn to one side, so that. I hnd double sight and was dizzy. My trouble so nflVced my whole noivjus system that I bid tn give no business. Then I returned to New York and went lo the Roosevilt Hospital, where for four months I was treated by specialists and they pronounced my case locomotor ataxia and incurable. After 1 had been under treatment of Prof. Starr and Dr. Ware Tor four months, they told mo they had done all they could do for me. Then I went to the New York hospital on Fifteenth street, where, upon examination, ibey said I wat incurable and would not take me in. At the I 'rubytorlun hospital they examined me and told me tha tame .thing. In March, 1800, I was taken to St. Poter's hospital in Albany, where Prof. H. II. Iluu frankly told my wife my case was hopeIe->s; that be could do nothing for me, and that the had better take me back home and save my money Out I wanted to make n trial of Prof, Hun's famous tkill, and I remained under hi* treatment for nine weeks, but secured no benefit. All this time I bad been growing worse. I bad become entirely 'paraljx'd from my waist down and bad partly lost con trol of mj hands. The paia WH terriblei my leg« felt at though they weie freezing ana my stomach would not retain food, and I fell away to 120 poundi.

For 'ho fiat few days the cold baths were metty soverc, ns I was so very weak, but I continued lo follow instructions as to 'king the pills and treatment, nnd even i'efora I had used up tho two boxes of pills I begnn to feel beneficial effects from lem. My pains wore not so bad; I felt warmer; my head felt better; my food be- irnn to relish, nni agree with me; I could -itrniehteu up; the feeling began to coma "uck into my limbs; I began to bo able to get about on crutches; niy eye came back again as good as ever, and now, after tho u§p nf eight boxes of the pills—at a cost it $4—seel—I can with the help of a cane 'illy, wall all about the b use ai:d yard, an saw wood, and on pi v.-uiit dais 1 * alk down town.
