The following dlsconrs-c, from among those elelivcred during his l -'ui -opcnn tour. Is selected liy licv. T. II. Wilt Tnl- mii^i' for perusal by his gre-al cmerve- gtition of newspaper fenders in Amenta. The U-xt is: Ho that conn'th from nlmvn h nh 'ive nil.— John III., HI. The most conspicuous ch.-irnctcr of history steps out upon the platform. The flng»r which, iliami.n.h-d with light, pointed down to Him from the Bethlehem sky, was only a rati lien t inn of tho finger of prophecy, the linger of genealogy, the finger of ehi-oiioln^y, the finger of event'—:ill live li Hirers pointing ill one dircflion. Christ is the of all lime, lie is ill mnsie. t he gt-ace- eulpture, tie- most if lights ;ul'i *-bades - :leme of climaxes, 1 hedra led ;rr;i niletir, overtopping figure the vox humniiii in fullest line in all exquisite mingling In all painting, tin the dome of nil and tho peroration of all splendid language. The Greek alphabet is made up of twenty-four tellers, mid when Christ compared Himself to I lie (lest letter and the last letter, the alpha and the omega, He appropriated to II hu -elf all the splendors that you ean spell out either with those two letters and all letters between them. "I am the alpha and the omega, Hie beginning and the end, the first ami the last." Or, if ymi prefer the words of the text, "above all." It means, after you have piled up all Alpine and llimalavs altitudes, the glory of Christ would have to spread its wings and descend l.ltno leagues to touch 1ho.se summits. Telion, a high mountain of Tltessal.y, Os-a. a high mountain, and Olympus, a high mountain; but mythology tells us when the giants warred against the gmls they piled up these three mountains, and from the top of them proposed to seale tho heavens; but the height was not great enough, and then' was a complete failure. And after all the plants —Isaiah and Paul, prophetic and apostolic giants; Raphael and Michael Angelo, artistic giants: Cherubim and Seraphim and Archangel, celestial giants —have failed to climb to the top of Christ's glory, they might all well unite in the words of the text and sav:"lle that comcth from nbovc is above all." First, Christ must he above till else in our preaching. There are also many boohs on homilcties scattered ail through the world that, till laymen, as well as all clergymen, have made up their minds what sermons ought to be. That sermon Is most effectual which most pointedly puts forth Christ as the pardon of nil sin ami the correction of all evil, individual, social, political, national. There is no reason why we should ring the endless changes on a few phrases. There are those who think that if an exhortation or a discourse havo frequent mention of justification, sanctincntion, covenant of works and covenant, of grace, that therefore it must be profoundly evangelical, whllo they are suspicious of a discourse whioh presents the same truth but under different phraseology. Now, I say there is nothing in all the opulent realm of Anglo-Saxonism or till the word treasures that we inherited from the Latin and the Greek and tho Indo-European, but we have a right to marshal it in religious discussion. Christ sets the example. Mis illustrations wore from the grass, the llowers, tho spittle, tho salve, the barnyard' fowl, the crystals of salt, as well as from the seas and the stars; and we do not propose in our Sabbath school teaching and in our pulpit addresses to be put on the limits. I know that there is a great deal said in our day against words as though they were nothing. They may be misused, but they have an imperial power. They are the bridge between soul and soul, between Almighty God and the human raco. What did God write upon the table of stones? Words. What did ChrlBt utter on Mount Olivet? Words. Out of what did Christ strike the spark for tho illuminatiou of the universe? Out of words. "Lot there bo light," and light was. Of course, thought is tho cargo and words only tho ship; but how long would your cargo get along without the ship? What you need, my friends, in all your work, in your Hab- hath-Sehool, In your reformatory institutions, and what we all neod Is to •nltn'ge our vocabulary when wo come to speak about God and Christ and Heaven. We ride a few old words ito death when thero is such illimublo resource. Shakespeare oxployed 15,000 different words for dramatic purposes; Milton employed 8,000 different words for poetic purposes; Rufus Choato employed over 11,000 different words for legal purposes, but tho most of us have less than 1,000 words that we can manage, less than S00. and that males us mo stupid. When we come to set forth the lov« of Christ we are going to take the ten- derest phraseology whorever wo find It, and if it has never been used in that direction before, all the moro shall we use it. When we come to speak of the glory of Christ, the Conqueror, wo are going to draw our studios from triumphal arch and oratorio and everything grand and Btunendons. The French uavy have eighteen flags by which they give signal; but those eighteen flags they can put into 60,000 different combinations. And 1 havo to tell you that those standards of the Cross may bs lifted into combinations Infinite and varieties everlasting. And let me say to young men who are after a/while going to preach Jesus Christ, you will have the largest liberty and Unlimited resource. Yon only have to present Christ in your own way. Jonathan Edwards preached Christ in tbe severest argument ever penned, •nd John liunyau preauhed Christ la are all these Gospel themes. Song has no melody, llowers have no sweetness, sunset sky has no color compared with these glorious themes. These harvests of grace spring up quicker than we can Richie them. Kindling pulpits with their lire, and producing revolutions with their power, lighting up dying beds with their glory, they aro the sweetest thought for the poet, and they arc the most thrilling illustration for the orator, and they offer tho most intense scene for the artist, and they are to the embassador of the sky all enthusiasm. Complete pardon for direst guilt. Sweetest comfort for ghastliest agony. Ihightcst hope for grimmcBt death. Grandest resurrection for darkest sepulchre. Oh, what n. gospel to preach! Christ over all in it. His birth. His suffering, His mlraclei, His parables, llis sweat. His tears, His blood, His atonement. Ills intercession— what glorious themes! Do we exercise faith? Christ is its object. Do we have love? It fastens on Jesus. Have we a fondness for the church? It is because Christ died for it. Have we a hope of Heaven? It Is because Jesus went ahead, the herald and the forerunner. The royal robe of Demetrius was so costly, so beautiful, that after he had put it olT no one ever dared put it on; but this robe of Christ, richer than that, the poorest and the wanest and the worst may wear. "Whcro sin abounded grace may much moro abound." "Oh. my sins, my sins," said Martin I .i .lher to Staupitz, "my sins, myslnsl" The fact is, that the brawny German student had found a Latin llible that had made him quake; and nothing else ever did make him quake; and when he found how, through Christ, ho was pardoned and saved, he wrote to a friend, saying: "Come over and join us great and nwful sinners saved by the grace of God. You seem to bo only a slender sinner, and you don't much extol the mercy of God; but wo who have been such very awful sinners prni.se His grace the more now that wo have been redeemed." Can it be that you are so desperately egotistical that yon feel yourself In first-rate spiritual trim, and that from tho root of the hair to tho tip of the toe you are scarlcss and immaculate? What you need is a looking-glass, and here it is in the llible. Toor, and wretched, and miserable, and blind, and naked from the crown of tho head to tho sole of the foot, full of wounds and putrefying sores. No health in us. And then take the fact that Christ gathered up all the notes against us and paid them, and then offered ns tho receipt. Again I remark that Christ is above all in dying alleviations. I have not any sympathy v.'ith the morbidity abroad about our demise. Tho emperor of Constantinople arranged that on the day of his coronation the stono- mason should oomo and consult him. about his tombstone that after awhile he would neod. And there are men who arc monoraanlaeal on the BuVvject of departure from this life by death, and the moro thoy think of It tho less they aro preparod to go. This is an unnuiuliness not worty of you, not worthy of men. Sahidin, tho greatest conqueror of his fl«y, while dying ordered tho tunlo lie had on him to bo carried after hiH death on a spear at the head of his army, and then the soldier ever and anon should stop and say: "Behold, all that Is left of Salactln, the emperor and conquoror! Of all tho states he conquored, of all the wealth ho accumulated, nothing did ho retain but this shroud." I have no sympathy with such bohavlor or suoh absurd demonstration, or with much that we hear uttered in regard to departure from this life to the next. Thoro is a oommon-sonsleal idea on this subject that you and I need to consider —that there, are only two styles of departure. A thousand feet underground, by light of torch, tolling in a miner's shaft, a ledge of rook may fall upon us, and wo may die a miner's death. Far out at sea, falling from the slippery ratlines and broken on tho halyards, we may die a sailor's death. On mission of mercy In hospital, amid broken bones nnd reeking leprosies and raging fevers, we may die a philanthropist's death. On the Held of battle, serving God and our country, slugs through the heart, tho gun carriage may roll over us, and wo die a patriot's death. Hut, nfterall, there are only two styles ot departure; the death of the righteous and the death of the wicked, and wo all want to die the former. God grant that when that hour comes we may bo at home! You want the baud of your kindred in your hand. You want your children to surround you. You want the light on your pillow from eyes that have long reflected your love. You want the room still. You do not want any curious strangers standing around watching you. You want your kindred from afar to hoar your last prayer. I think that is the wish of all of us. But is that all? Can earthly friends hold us when the bil- | lows of death oomo up to the girdle? Can human voice charm open Heaven's gate? Can human hands pilot us through the narrows of death into Heaven's harbor? Can an earthly friendship shield us from the arrows of death and in the hour when Satan shall pructice upon us his infernal arehory? No, no, no, no! Alas? poor soul, is that is all. Better dio in the wilderness, far from tree shadows, and far from fountain, alone, vultures circling through the ulr waiting for our body, unknown to men, and to have no burial if only Christ could say through the solitudes: "I will never leave thee. I will never forsake thee. From that pillar of stone a ladder would soar heavenward, angels coming aud going; and across the solitude and the barrenness would come the sweet notes oi Heavenly minstrelsy. Gordon Hall, far from home, dying In tho door of a heathen temple, saidi "Glory to Thco, 0 Godl" What did dying Wilberforoe say to his wife? "Come and sit beside me and let us talk of Heaven. I neyftr knew what happiness was until I found Christ." What did dying Hannah Moore says "To go to Heaven, think what that Let Tojfo to filirlaj^ whoj»nd_that I might I ".TIT Mount Zion with tho one hundred and forty nnd four thousond, and with the just men mado perfect, and we shall ascribe riches and honor, and glory, and majesty, and dominion unto God and the Lamb." Dr. Taylor, condemned to burn at tho stake, on tho way thither, broke away from the guardsmen,and went boundingandleap ing and jumping toward the Are, glad to go to Jesus and to die for Him. Sir Charles Hare, in last moraont, had such rapturous vision that he cried: "Upward, upward, upward!" And so great was the peace of ouo of Christ's disciples that he put his fingers upon tho pulso in his wrist and counted it and obsorved it; and so great was his placidity that aftor awhile ho said: "Stopped,"and his life had ended here to begin in Heaven. But grander than that was tho testimony of tho worn-out first missionary, when, in the Mamartine dungeon, he cried: "I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand; I have fought tho good fight. I have finished my course, I bavc kept tho faith; honceforth there Is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord, tho righteous Judge, will give me in that day, and not to mo only, but to all them that love His ap- pearingl" Do you not sec that Christ is above all in dying alleviations? Toward the last hour of our earthly residence we aro speeding. When I see the sunset I say: "One day less to live." When I see the Rprlng blossoms scattered I say: "Another season gono forever." Wlion I oloso this Hible on Sabbath night I say: "Another Sabbath departed." When I bury a friend I say: "Another earthly attraction gone forever." What nimble feet the years havel The roebucks and the light nings run not so fast. From decade to decade, from sky to sky, they go at n bound. There is a place for us, whether marked or not, whore you and 1 will sleep the last sleep, and the men nre now living who will, with solemn tread, carry us to our resting place. Ay, it is known In Heaven whether our departure will be a coronation or a banishment Brighter than a banqueting hull through which the light feet of the dancers go up and down to the sound of trumpeters will be tho sopulcher through whoso rifts tho holy light of Heaven streometh. God will watch you. He will send His angels to guard your slumbering ground, until, at Christ's behest, thoy shall roll away the stone. So, also, Christ is above all in Heaven. The Bible distinctly says that Christ is the chief theme ot the celestial ascription, all tho thronos facing llis throno, all tho palms waved before His face, all tho crowns down at His feet Cherubim to cherubim, seraphim to seraphim, redeemed spirit to redeemed Bpirit shall recite the Saviour's earthly sacrifice. Stand on some high hill of Heaven, and in all tho radiant sweep the most glorious object will bo Jesus. Myriads ' gazing on the scars of His suffering, in silence at flrat, afterward breaking J forth into acclamation. Tho martyrs, all the purer for fiamo through I which they passed, will say: "This is Jesus for whom wo died." The apostles, all tho happier for tho shipwreck and the scourging through which they went, will say: "This is the Jesus whom wo preached at Corinth and at C'appadocia and at Antioch and at Jerusalem," Little children olad in whito will say; "This is tho Jesus who took us in His arms and blessed us, and when the storms of tho world were too cold and loud, brought us into this beautiful place." The multitudes of the bereft will say: "This is the Jesus who comforted us when our heart broke." Many who had wandered clear oft from God and plunged into vagabondism, but were saved by grace, will say: "This is the Jesus who pardoned us. We were lost on the mountains, and Ho brought us home." Wo were guilty, and lie made us whito as snow. Mercy boundless, grace unparalleled. And then, aftor each one has recited his peculiar de liverances and peculiar moroies, reolted them as by solo, all tho voices will come together in a groat chorus, which shall make tho arches eoho and re-echo with tho eternal reverberation of gladness and peace and triumph. Edward 1. was so anxious to go to the Holy Land that when ho was about to expire he bequeathed one hundred and sixty thousand dollars to have his heart, after his decease, takon to the Holy Land in Asia Minor, and his request was complied with. Hut thero are hundreds to-day whoseJiearta tiro already in the Holy Land of Ueavon. Whore your treasures are there aro your hearts also. John Bunyan, of whom I spoke at the beginning of the discourse, caught a glimpse of that place, and in his quaint way he said: "And 1 heard in my dream, and lo! the bells of the city rang again for joy; and as they opened the gates to let in the men I looked in after them, and lo! the city shone liko the sun, and thero wore streets of gold, and men walked on them, harps in their hands, to sing praises with all; and after that they shut up the gates, which, when I had aoea, I wished ny* sellaaongthsmJ" . .

How lo Pr «aeivA th* l.ti-cloua Il«rry Tor Wliilrr U.e. The seunon of strawberries is now at. its height and hnu-nkeepers should be reminded that there is no bitter preserve than one of strawberries Pre- 't 'rve innkers in this country have nrjt been in successful with thi* fruit >i« tbe foreigners. The imported German pn— s Tvr-s seem to retain tho ll .ivor and almost the Firmness of tbe freBU berry. The secret of I heir process is said to consist in simple care. Thee cook but a few hemes at once. Strawberries- are not an acid fruit, therefore they do not require more than three-quarters of a pound ol sugar to a pound of fruit They urn very much better, however, preserved than caniit d. The very best way of preserving strawberries is in their own juice. To Bix quarts of ripn, firm berries allow four and a h,ilf pounds of sugar. Put three pints of tho berries in a porceluin-lined kettle with three-qnirlers of a pound of sugar. Pi ice them at tho buck of the Btove, where tl.ey will simmer nnd whero thoy will on no account get beyond blood-heat. In un hour llic juice will havo drawn out of thorn. Mash them with a potato-masher >md airaiu all the juice out of the berries through a fine strainer. Add this juic lo tho remainder of the sugar ond beat up thu wliiis of two PggR with their eggshells in tho Byrup. Let the syrup conic to tbe boiling point rather slowly and boil steadily for about live minutes. Toen strain it, putting u cloth inside of tbe colander and sotting the colunde>r on the mouth of an open jar. Return tbe syrup to tho preserving kot- lie, winch Bbould have been first thoroughly washed. Have tbe cant ready und set iu boiling wuter in a tin pan. Ai soon as tbe syrup boils, add a few of the berries, just enough to cover the top. When these- have cooked for live aiinutes pu' them in ono of the cans and put more berries in. the syrup to cook. As Boon us you liuve it cimful of berries, covor them with sjruu and fid auotbor cau. Wtien all tbe berries are used thero may still be some syrup lett. Can this by itself UB it is rich ly flavored with tbe Blruwberry and use it lor flavoring dossercs in the winter. It you wish to make a strawberry cordial add equal quantities of white cookinv brandy to fquiil quantities of this syrup. It is not strictly necessary to clarify and strain the Byrup for strawberry preserves, though tho preserves are much handsomer it this be done. Strawberry preserves should he kept in a cool, dark place'or they wilt be liublo to ferment in the hoit of t ; e summer. The sifest way is to puck the j tra in box*» of sand and sei I hem in as cool a place us you have, re- lueiuberiug that duiupness is at objectionable as heat.

An official report presented to the British p rliument, printed in u large volume of nen 'ly 400 piige->, furnishes a complete un lysis of the strikes ..ml ImrnutH in United Ki gdnin, in Fill'. ee, in Gorman) and i . tho United States, dun 'g the year 1890. From thm repent it appeare that during that year, there weio in 'he United Kingdom 1,028 strike.-, alfe.-ting fl '.12.!)81 persons. In the United Stale.-, during the H .tne >eer titer,: were 927 Btri -es, uttVoiing 2-19,01'' persons; in Germany, 40 Hlrike-a. iilTuoling 98,7001 persons. In comparing these liguros, it must be remem 1 ored tli t in 1890 tho population of the United Kingdom wita 37,401.9-11, while iu the United States Ihe population WIIBG2,V32,250 KO th it tho nuin'er of strikes in proportion to the population of Groat llritain WUB nearly double Ihe number i.i the United States Furthermore, the strikes mentioned in the British report do not inchido.tho nuinor our bieatl riots piovalont in Europe, nut unkiuK.n in thin country, resulting from the frequent suffering of tho people lor lack of food. It appearH that ouch at'ike in United Kit gdom affected on t> e average 382 people, which each strike in this conn try affected but 237 por.-ons, s • that a much greutor number ot employes ".ere involved in labor troubles in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireh, d than in this republic. There is much less occasion for strikes in this country, becaiiB' the condition of the working people in America is fur superior to the condition ot the labori- g ol uses in G'etil Britain. Many of tho working people in the United States own their own homes, which iB rarely thocuso in any European country. It iB rarely the case in Leeds, a great luauu acturii.g city of England, with n population of over 200,000, not ouo workiogman OWUB tho house lie lives, while ut Ilomestoad, Pa, more than half of tho mill workers have homes of their own. And this is hi gely the case in all the manufacturing towns of the United States. Another important indication of the better condition of the workin men in this country is to be found in the Hiving banks reports In 1890 tho eiepos ts in tho savings bunks in the United StateB wore 81,024,844.500, with 4,203.025 ep sitnrs; the average too ulidepositor was 8308 Thero are loss tliiin one fourth this number of depositors a d ono third of this amount of deposits in the United Kingdom.
