Not much complaint can jn -tlv l> uttered igiinst American joiuig men <m this to ^re, but s>melhing may ho said about the temptation all young peoplo feel at times to be impatient because "tho old folks" teem "behind the times." It is easier to look backward than forward, and it may be welt to boar in mind that inus much us people have always been more or influenced in their old age by their early training, so it will be in the future, and that the next generation will probably find tho young men of today in very many c .tfea "behind tho times." An->lber consideration that should hav more weight is this, that those who bona superiority nh to nmnuers, mental endow uiente and physical strength can very well afford to be magnanimous in their judg ment of othera less fortunate. Young men, above all otherB, should not kick a man who is down. On the centrary, it i the p irt of manhood to help the fallen, to provide out of our plenty that tho meager reaourcea of othera muy be less noticoabla But if the old peoplo cannot go so fast cannot learn tue "new-fangled notions"— then more's tin pity.

BAB'S BUTH NOT TAKEN. Mr. Cleveland Olijoola to l'ubllolty Gained by Fubllsl.luir ilte Unbj's Picture ATLANTA, GU,, July 11.—The Journal prints a letter from ex-President Cleveland in reply to a request for the piotur of baby Ruth for publication. Mr. Cleveland Bays: "Aa a photo haa never been taken of tho baby, it is im poaaible to oomply with your request,' and adda frankly that he and bis wife would not be willing to have it'published if there were one. He and his wife are doing all they can to eheok the notoriety which would be Increased by such a pub licatlon. f the painter, and we hear the hum of bis forests uml the clash of his conflicts, nd see the eloud-blossoming of tho hy und the foam-blossoming of the ocean; iiiul «-c CNIIW out from the gallery better men than when wo went in. We go into thu concert of music nnd ee lifted into enchantment: for days ftcr our soul seems to l -oelt with a cry tumult, of joy, us the sea, after a long stress of wenthor, rolls nnd roelcs nd surges a great while before it confes buck to its ordinary calm. On the same principle it is profitable! to think of Heaven, and look oil' upon thnt landscape of joy nnd light which St. John depicts; the rivers of gladness, the trees of life, the thrones of power, the rrmiuinglings of everlasting love. 1 wish this morning that I could bring Heaven from the list of intnngiblesnnd make it seem to you n .s it really is—tho great fact in nil history, the depot of 11 uges, the parlor of God's universe. This account in my text gives a piut- ure of I lea veil as it is on n holiday. Now, if a mini came to New York for the first time on the day that Kossuth arrived from Hungary, and ho saw tho arches lifted and tho flowers Hung in the streets, and ho heard the guns booming, he would hnveheen very foolish to suppose that that was the ordin- ry appearance of tho city. While Heaven is always grnnd and always beautiful, I think my text speaks of a gala day in Uciiveu. It is a time of a great celebration— perhaps of tho birth or the resurrection of Jesus; perhaps of the downfall of some despotism; perhaps becnuso of tho rushing in of the millennium. I know not what, but it does seem to mo In reading this pnssuge as if it were a holiday in Heaven: "Aftcr this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongtios, Btood before tho throne and before, the Lamb, clothed in whito robes, and palms in their hands, and cried with a loud voice, saying: Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne and unto the Lamb." I shall speak to you of the glorified in Heaven, their number, theiv antecedents, their dress, their symbols and their song. Hut how shall I begin by telling you of tho numbers of those in Heaven? I have seen a curious estimate by an ingenious man who calculates how long the world was going to last, and how many people there are In each generation, and then says he thinks thoro will.be twenty-seven trillions of souls in glory. I have no faith in his estimate. I simply take the plain announcement of tho text—it ia "a great multitude, which no man can number." Every few years, in this country, we take u census of the population, and It is very easy to tell how many people thoro uro in the city or in a nation; but who shall givo the census of the great nation of the saved? It is quite eaBy to tell how many people there aro iu different denominations of Christians— how many Baptists and Methodists and Episcopalians and Presbyterians; of all tho denominations of Christiana we could make an estimate. Suppose they were gathered iu ono groat audience room; how overwhelming the spectaolel But it would give no idea ol the great audience-room of Heaven— the multitudes thatboivdown and that lift up their hosannas. Why, they come from all tho ohapols, from all the cathedrals, from all sects, from all ages; they who prayed in splendid liturgy, and those who In broken sentences uttered tho wish of brolcon hearts—from Grace church and Sailors' Bethel, from undov tho shapeless rafters and from under the high-sprung aroh— "a great multitude, that no man can number." One of the most Impressive things ! have looked upon is an army. Stand Ing upon a hlllsldo you see forty thousand or fifty thousand mon pass along. You can hardly Imagine the impression if you hp,ve not actually felt it. But you may talta all the armies thnt tho earth haa ever seen—the loglons under Sennacherib and Cyrus and Caisar, Xerxes and Alexander and Napoleon and all our modern forces and put them in one groat array, and then an some swift steed you may ride along the line and review the troops; und thitt accumulated host from all ages seems, like a half-formed reglmont compared with the great array of tho rodoumed. I stood one day at Willtamsport and saw on the opposite side ot the Pato- mac the forces coming down, regiment after regimenti and brigade after brigade. It seemed as though there was no end to the procession. But now let ine take the field-glass of St. John and look off nnon th .i T11 - taw, Burmese. After men have been long in the hind you can tell by their accentuation from what nationality they came; nnd I supposo in the great throng around the throne, it will not be difficult to tell from what part of tho earth they came. These reaped Sicilian wheat fields nrjd thoso picked cotton from the pods. These under blistering skies gathered tamarinds and yams. Those crossed the doscrt on camels and those glanced over the snow, drawn by Siberian dogs, and these milked the goats fnr up on tho Swiss crags. These fought the walrus and white bear in regions of everlasting snow, and those heard the songs of fiery-winged birds in African thickets. They wore white. They wore black. They were red. They were copper color. From nil lands, from all ages. They were plunged into Austrian dungeons. They passed through Spanish inquisitions. They were confined in London tower. They fought with beasts in tho amphitheater. They were Moravians. They were Waldcnscs. They were Abi- genses. They were Scotch Covenanters. They were Sandwich islanders. In this world men prefer different kinds of government. The United States wants a republic. The British government needs to be a constitutional monarchy. Austria wants absolutism. Hut when they come up from earth from different nationalities, they will prefer one great monarchy—King Jesus ruler over it. And if that monarchy were disbanded and it were submitted to all tho hosts of Heaven who should rule, then by the unanimous suffrages of all the redeemed, Christ would become president of the whole universe. Magna chnvtas, bills of right, houses of burgesses, triumvirates, congresses, parliaments — nothing in the presence of Christ's scepter, swaying over till the people who have entered upon that great glory. Oh! can you imagine It? What n strange commingling of tastes, of histories, of nationalities, "of all nations nnd kindreds and people nnd tongues." Jly subject advances und tolls you of the dress of those in Heaven. Tho object of dress in this world is not only to veil the body, but to udorn it. Tho God who dresses up the spring morning with blue ribbon of sky around tho brow, and ear-rings of dowdrops hung from tree branch, and mantle of crimson cloud Hung over tho shoulder, and tho violeted slipper of tho grass for her feet—I know that God docs not despiso beautiful apparel. Well, what shall we wear in Heaven? "1 saw 11 great multitude clothed in whito robes," It is whito! In this world wo have sometimes to have on working uppnrel. Bright nnd lustrous garments would be. ridiculously out of plnec sweltering among forges, or mixing paints, or plastering ceilings, or binding books. In this world we must have worklngday apparel sometimes, and we care, not how course it is. It is appropriate; but whop all the toil of earth is past, and there is no more drudgery and no more weariness, we Khali stand before the throno robed in white. On earth wo sometimes htid to wear mourning apparel— black scarf for the arm. black veil for the fiicc, black gloves for the hands, black band for the hat. Abraham mourning for Sarah; Isaac mourning Rebeeen; Rachel mourning for hor children: David mourning for Absalom; Mary mourning for Lnzurus. Every second of every minute of every hour of every day a heart breaks. Tho earth from zone to zona and from polo to pole Is cleft with sepulchral rent; and the earth can easily afford to bloom and blossom whon it Is so rich with moldoring life. Graves! gravest graves! But when theso bei-eavemonts have all passed, and thoro are no mora graves to dig, and no more coffins to make, and no more sorrow to suffer, we shall pull off this mourning and be robed in white. I see a soul going right up from all this scene of sin and trouble into glory. I seem to hear Him say: I Jouruoy forth r&Jololnfr, Fvom this dark valo of teara To llouvonly Joy aud freedom, From ourthly caroa aud foara. Whon Christ my Lord ahull gather All His rodeomod again, His Klnudom to Inherit— Good uiitht till thou. I bear my Saviour calling; Tho joyful hour has uome Tho antjel guards aro ready To guldo mo to our Homo Whon Christ our Lord shall gather All His rodeomod again, His Kingdom to inherit— Good night till thou. My subject advances nnd tells you of the symbols they carry. If my text hud represented the good In Heaven as carrying cypress branehoB, that would havo meant sorrow. If my text had represented tho good In Heaven as carrying night-shade, that would have meant sin. But it is a pultn branch they carry, and that is viotory, When tho people came home from war in olden times tho conqueror rose at tho head of his troops, and there were triumphal arches, and the peoplo would come out with branches of the palm tree and wave them all along the host. What a slgnlfl caut type this ot thu greeting and of the joy of the redeemed in Heaven! On earth they were condemned and were put out of polite oirolos. They had infamous hands strike thorn on both oheelcs, Infernal spite spat iu their faces. Their back ached with sorrow. „ Their brow reeled with unalloviated toil. How weary they were! Some. iimos they broke the heart of the midnight in the midst of all their angaish crying but; . "Oh, God!" But hark now to the Bhout of the delivered captives as they lift their arms from the shackles and they cry outt "ITreel rocking and tossing of a forest in a tempest, as nil tho redeemed rise up, host beyond host, rank beyond rank, waving, waving their palms. My subject makes another advance- vancemcnt nnd speaks of the song they sing. Dr. Dick, in a very learned work, says that nmong other things in Heaven they will give a great deal of time to the study of arithmetic and the higher brunches of mathematics. I do not believe it. It would upset my idea of Heaven if I thought so. I never liked mathematics, nnd I would rather take tho rcprcscntaton of my text, which describes the occupation of Heaven ns being joyful psalmody. "They cried with a loud voice, saying: Salvation unto our God." In this world wo have secular songs, nursery songs, boatmen's songs, harvest songs, sentimental songs; but in Heaven we will have taste for only ono song, and Hint will be a song of salvation from an eternal death to an eternal Heaven, through the blood of the Lamb that was slain. I seo a soul coming up to join the redeemed in Heaven. As it goes through the gates the old friends of that spirit come around it and say: "What shall we sing?" and the newly-urrivcd soul says: "Sing salvation;" and after awhile an earthly despotism fulls, and a scepter of iniquity is snapped, and churches are built where onco there were superstitious mosques, and angel cries to angel: "Let us sing," and the answer is: "What shall we sing?" and another voice says: "Let us sing salvation." And after awhile all tho churches on earth will rush into the outspread arms of the church of Heaven, and while the righteous are ascending, and the world is burning, and all things are being wound up, the question will be asked: "What shall we sing?" and there will be a voice "like tho voice of many waters, like: the voice of mighty thunderings," that will respond: "Sing salvution." In this world we have plaintive songs —songs tromulous with sorrow, songs irgeful for tho dead; but in Heaven there will be no sighing of winds, no wailing of anguish, no weeping symphony. The tumest song will bo hallelujah—the dullest tune a triumphal march. Joy among tho cherubim! Joy among the seraphim! Joy among the ansomcd! Joy forever! On earth the music in churches is often poor, because there is no interest In it, or because there is no harmony. Some would not sing; some could not sing; some sang too high; some sang too low; some sang by fits and starts; but in the groat audience of the redeemed on high all voices will be ao- eordnnt, and the man who on earth could not tell a plantation melody from tho' Dead March in Saul" will lift an anthem that tho Mendetssohnstmd Beotho- vens and the Schnmannsof earth never imagined;nnd you may stand through all eternity und listen, and there will not be one discord in that great anthem that forever rolls up against the great heart of Gad. It will not be a solo; it will not bo a duct; it will not bo a quin­ tette; but an innumerable host before tho throne, crying: ".Salvation unto our God and unto the Lninb." They crowd all the temples; they bend over tho battlements; they fill all the heights and depths ami lengths and breadths of Heaven with their hosannas. They sing a star song, saying: "Who is He that guided us through the thick night, and when all other lights went out arose in the sky tho morning star, pouring light on the soul's darkness?" And the chorus will come in: "Christ, tho morning star, shining on tho soul's darkness." They will sing a flower song, saying: "Who is He that brightened nil our way, and breathed sweetness upon our soul, and bloomed through frost and tempest? Ami the chorus w4)l come in "Christ, tho lily of tho valley, blooming through frost and tempest." Thoy sing a water song, saying: "Who is Ho that gleamed to us from tho frowning crag, nnd lightened the darkest ravine of trouble, und brought cooling to the tomplos and refreshment to tho Up, aud was a fountain in tho midst of the wilderness.." Aud then the chorus will come in: "Christ, tho fountain in hemldst of t\\i wilderness." My friends, will you join that anthem? Shall we make rehearsal this morning? If we can not sing that song on earth, ivo will not be able to Blug It In Heaven. Can it be that our good friends in that land will walk all through that great throng of which I speak looking for us and not finding us? Will thoy oome down to the gate and ask if we have passed through, and not find us reported as having come? Will they look through tho folios ot eternal light and find our names unrecorded? Is all this a representation of a laud we shall never BOO—of a song we shall never sing? DEMOCRATIC TICKET It Pleaaes the Republicans Better Than any Other Which Could be Nominated.

This year a solid delegation from his own stood between the Cleveland administration and the accomplishment of its desires. It v us virtually without power to do anything but divide the spoils. The celerity and enthusiasm displayed in ousting union men and appointing ex rebel men to ofilce showed how the Cleveland administration worked in the one field where its hands were free.
