Tho Prlco Paid by Christ for the Rodomption of Mankind. It Wnn an Object I.cftftnn thtit In All CeitturlcN thut lluvo KlnpM'il lma Not Lost Itn l'ntonry un it Tent of Dlvlno Line. Tlic following discourse, selected by Rev. T. DeWitt Tutelage from tliose delivered during' his European tour, is (riven for perusal this week by his American renders. The text is: It behooved Clirlxt to suffer.—Luko xxlv.,40. There have been scholars who huvo ventured the assertion than the pains of our Lord were unneccssny. Indeed, It was 11 shocking waste of tears and blood and agony, unless some great end were to be reached. If men can prove that no pood result comes of it, then the character of God is impeached,and tho universo must stand abhorrent and denunciatory at the fact that the Father allowed the butchery of llis only begotten Son. Wo all admire the brave six hundred described by Tennyson as dashing into tho conflict when they knew they must die, and knew at the same time that "some one had blunder'd;" but we are abhorrent of the man who made the blunder and who caused tho sacrifice of these bravo men for no use. Hut I shall show you, if the Lord will help me this morning', that for good reasons Christ went through the torture. In other words, "It behooved Christ to suffer." 1, In the first place I remark, that Christ's lacerations were necessary, because man's rescue was an impassibility except b3' the payment of some (rreat sacrifice. Outraged law had thundered against iniquity. Slim must dio unless a substitute can intereopt that death. Let Gabriel step forth. He refuses. Let Michael, the archangel, step forth, lie refuses. No Roman citizen, no Athenian, no Cor- luthian, no reformer, no angel volunteered. Christ then bared llis heart to the pang, lie paid for our redemption in tears and blc.od, und wounood feet, and scourged shoulders, and torn brow. "It is done." Heaven and earth heard the snap of tho prison bar. Sinai ceased to quake with wrath the moment that Calvary began to rock in crucifiction. Christ had suffered. "Oh!" says, some man, "I don't like that doctrine ot sub- Btitution; let every man bear his own burdens, and weep his own tears, and fight his own bnttles." Why, my brother, there is vicarious suffering all overthe world. Did not your parents suffer for you? I'o you not sutler sometimes for your children? Does not the patriot. sulTer lor his country? Did not (Iraee Darling suffer for the drowning sailors? Vicarious suffering on nil aides'. Hut how insignificant compared with this scene of vicarious suffering! WHS it Tor oi-inu 'H Hint 1 luul done. lie Kl'OJined upon the tree? Ainu/hii? I 'ily, KUiec unknown, And love beyomWV'Hree. Christ must suffer to pay the price of our redemption. Hut I remark again: The sufferings of Christ were necessary in order that tho world's sympathies might be aroused. Wen are won to tho right and good through their sympathies. The world must feel aright boforo it can act aright. So the cross was uV lowed to be lifted Mint the world's Bym- pathics might bo aroused. Men who have been obdurated by the cruelties they have enacted, by the massacres they have inflicted, by tho horrors of which they have been guilty, have be come little children in the presence of this dying Saviour. What tho sword could not do, what Juggernauts could not subdue, the wounded hand of Christ has accomplished. Thore are this moment millions of people held under the spell of that one saorlflce. The hammers that struck the spikes Into the cross have broken tho rocky heart of the world. Nothing but tho agonleHof a Saviour's death throe could rouse the world's sympathies, I remark again: "It bohooved Christ to BU Iter," that the strength and per Bistonee of tho Dlvino lovo might bo demonstrated. Was it tho applause of tho world that Induced Christ on , that crusade from Heaven? Why, and tho universo at His feet. Could the conquest of this insignificant planet have paid Him for His career of pain, If It had been a more matter of applause All the houors of Heaven snrg' ing at nis foot. Would your queen give up her throne that she might rule a miserable tribe in Africa? Would the Lord Jesus Christ, on the throne of the universe, come down to our planet if It were a more matter of applause and acclamation? Nor was it an expedition undertaken for the accumulation of vast wealth. What oould all the harvests and tho diamonds of our llttlo world do for Him whose are tho glories of the infinitude and eternity? Nor was it an experiment— an attempt to show what Ho could do with a havd-hearted race. Ho who wheels the stars in their courses and holds the pillars of the universe on tho tips of Ills fingers needed make no experiment to find what He could do. Ohl I will tell you, my Mends, what It was. It was undisguised, unlimited, all-oouquoring, all consuming, iilbntle, eternal, omalpo- tent love that opened tho gate; that started the star in tho east, with finger of light pointing down to the manger; that arrrayod the Christmas choir above Bethlehem; that opened the stablodoor where Christ was born; that lifted Him on the cross. demonstrated if against the holy and innocent One of the Cross it had not been hurled in one bolt 1 of lire. Christ was not the first | roan that had been put to death. I There had been many before lllm put | to death, but they had their whims, their follies, their sins, their inconsistencies. Hut when the molt outside of Jerusalem howled at the Son of Ood, it was hate against goodness, it. was blasphemy against virtue: it was earth against Heaven. What was it in that innocent and loving face of Christ that excited the vituperation and the contumely and scorn of men? If lie hail bantered them to come on, if He had laughed them into derision, if lie had denounced them as tho vagabonds they were, wo could understand their ferocity: but it was against inoffeusive- ness that they brandished their spears and shook their fists, and ground their teeth, nnd howled, and scoffed, and jeered, and mocked. Whatevil had He done? Whose eye-sight had Ho put out? None; but Ho had given vision to the blind. Whoso child had He slain? None; but Ho restored the dead damsel to her mother. What law had He broken? None; but He had ineulnted obedience to government. What foul plot had He enacted against the lnippi- jiess of the race? None; Me had come to save a world. The only cruelty lie. over enacted was to heal the sick. The ! only "ostentation He ever displayed was to sit with publicans and sinners, and wash the disciples' feet. The only selfishness he ever exhibited was to give His life for llis enemies. And yev, all the wrath of the world surged against llis holy heart. Hear the red -hot scorns of the world hissing in the pools of a Saviour's blood! And standing there to-day, let us see what an unreasonable, loathsome, hateful, blasting, damning thing is the iniquity of the human heart. I 'nlooM 'd, what will not sin do? It will scale any ight, it will fathom the very depth of hell, it will revel in all lasciviousness. There is no blasphemy t will not utter, there are no cruelties on which it will not gorge itself. It will wallow in filth, t will breathe the air of eharnel houses of corruption, and call them aroma; it will quaff the blood of immortal souls and call it nectar. When sin murdered Christ on the cross, it showed what it would do with the Lord God Almighty if it could get at Him. The prophet had declared—I think it was Jeremiah—had declared centuries before, tho truth, but not until sin shot out its forked tongue at tho crucifixion and tossed its sting into the soul of a martyred .lesus was it illustrated that "tho heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked." Again: "It behooves Christ to suffer" that our affections might lie excited Christward. Why, sirs, the behavior of our Lord lias stirred the affections of all thoso who. have, ever heard of it. It has hung the art galleries of tho world with sueh*pietures asGhirlandajo's "Worshipof the Magi," Giotto's "Haptism of Christ." llol- raad Hunt's "Christ in the Temple," Tintoret's "'Agony In the Garden," Angolo's "Crucifixion," and it has called out Handel's. "Messiah," nnd rung sweetest chimes in Young's "Night Thoughts," and filled the psalmody of the world with the penitential notes of sorrow and tho hosannas of Christian triumph. Show mo any other king who has so many subjects. What is the most potent name to-day in tho United States, in France, in England, in Scotland, in Ireland? Jesus. Other kings have had many subjects, but where is tills king who has so many admiring subjects as Christ? Show me a regiment of a thousand men in their army, and I will show you a battalion of tcu thousand men in Christ's army. Show mo in history where ouo man has given his property and his llfo for anyono else, and I will show you in history hundreds and thousands of men who have cheerfully died that Christ might roign. Ayo, there aro a hundred men in this houso who, if need were, would stop out and dio for Jesus. Their faith may now seem to be faint, and sometimes they may bo .Inconsistent; but lot tho fires of martyrdom bo kindled, throw thorn Into tho pit, cover them with poisonous serpents, pound them, flail thorn, crush them, and I will toll you what their last cry would bo: "Come, Lord JCSUB , como quickly!" Oh, yes! tho Lord Jesus has won tho nlFectl ms of muuy of us. There aro some of us can sav this morning: "Lord Jesus, my light and my song; my hope f»r time, my expectation for eternity." Altogether lovely Thou art My soul is ravished with tho vision. Thou art mine. Como, let ino clasp Thee. Como life, como death, come scorn and pain, como whirling wind and darkness, Lord Jesus, I etm not give Thee up. I havo heard Thy voice,I have seen Thy bleeding side. Lord Josus, if I had soino garland plucked from heavenly gardens, I would wreathe it for Thy brow. If I had some gem worthy of the place, I would set it in Thy crown. K I had seraphic harp, I would strike it in Thy praise. Hut I como lost und ruined and undone, to throw myself at Thy foot. No prion I brlnic Bluntly lo Thy Crosu I CIIUK. Thou kuowest all things. Thou know- cst that I love Thee. Hut I remark again; "It behooved Christ lo sulfur" that the world might learn how to suffer. Sometimes people suffer because they oau not help thum- solvos; but Christ had In His lunula all | tho weapons to punish His uuomlos.and yatj In qulosconoo He endured all outrage, lie might havo hurled the rooks of Golgotha upon llis pursuers, ho | might have cleft the earth until it "Father, not my will, but Thine be done." You never have had any bodily pain that equaled Christ's torture. "It behooved Christ to suffer," that He might show you how physically to suffer. So'iie of you are persecuted. There are tliose who hate you. They criti­ cise you. They would lie glad to see yon stumble nnd fall. They have done unaccountable meannesses toward yon. Sometimes you feel angry. You feel ns if you would like to retort. Stopl Look at the closed lips, look at tho still hand, look at the beautiful demeanor of your Lord. Struck, not Btriking back again. Oh! if you could only appreciate what lie endured in tho way of persecution you never would complain of persecution. The words of Christ would be your words: "Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me! but if not, Thy will be done." "It behooved Christ to suffer" persecution that He might show you how to endure persecution. Some of you are bereft. It is no random remark, because there is hardly a family here that has not passed under the shadow. You have been bereft. Your house is u different, place from what it used to be. The same furniture, ttie same books, tho same pictures, but there has been a voice hushed there. The face that used to light up the whole dwelling has vanished. The pattering of the other feet does not break up the lonliness. The wave has gone over your soul, anil you have sometimes thought what you would tell Him when He comes back; but then the thought has flashed upon you, lie will never come hack! Ah! my brother, my sister. Christ has sounded all that depth. Jesus of the bereft soul is here to-day. Heboid Him! He knows who is to weep at the tomb. It seems to ine as if all the storms of tho world's sorrow were compressed into one sob, and that sob were uttered in two words: "Jesus wept." I close my sermon with a doxology: "Blessing, and glory, and honor, and power be unto lliin that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb, forever. Amen, and Amen!"

Whether liy Knil or l»y Solution It should He Dune l'inrtv and ('nri'fullv. "Spare the rod and spoil the child" is one of the most venerable oi maxims, and, if true, some one bus u great deal to answer for, in the way of spoiled children. There has of late been a good deal of discussion in the public prints upon the subject, of punishing children. To spank or not to spank, to apply the switch or to use moral suasion, to wield the slipper or to dissolve into tears and to plead with unruly offspring, to hang them up until their courage has died out, so to speak, and has left them docile, or to shut them in cellars, allies or dark closets -these and scores of other methods have been discussed until it would seem that the entire subject must be worn threadbare. And yet the infant disobeys. Is rebellions, restive, delimit, perhaps violent, and something must, be done Art a rule in these eases, the long-suiVei' ing parent, endures and waits, hopes the chilli will do better and postpon punishment until, alarmed at some new outbreak, patience gives way and whether it bo switch, rattan, j shingle, slipper or dusting-cloth, it matters little, the blows full like rain on the offender, and continue, as a rule, until tho whipper stops from sheer exhaustion of body and spirit. And because there is no improvement in tho child's conduct, it is token for granted that punishment is a failure. And so it is when administered in this fashion. A child should never bo corrected when tho parent is angry. This Is one of the fundamental principles of good government. It is claimed by many disciplinarians thut it child should never know what a blow means. This In all very woll for some children, but thore are natures which can not be controlcd in this way. There is occasionally a ills- position which nothing but force will subduo, and even thou it must bo so forceful ns toawo and terrify tho spirit of insubordination into unquestioning obedience, 'There Is little uso In parleying with such natures. Tho struggle usually comos early, and must bo mot without tho least hesitation. Once give way to tho child's will, and it may rouso a Bpirlt of resistance which long months, perhnps years, of subsequent training will fail to conquer. ]Jy teaching a enild that its present and its luturo welfare depend on its own notions you foster a true and noble Independence that is sure lo have its own rewni;d.

Tho first session of tho fifty-second congress has just como to n close and It is meet nnd proper to glance over its record and seo what truth there may be In Mr. Reed 's eiuistie arraignment When tho plain people "arose in Uielr might" lu tho fall of 1S00 ami elected ix houso of representatives Dom ooratle by a strength of three to ouo, Uioy had a right to expect grout things from tho all powerful aggregation o statesmen thus chosen. Grout reforms had been promised and there was nothing to prevent a houso made up of 2118 democrats, 8 Independents and only !)0 republicans from bringing about nil manner of democratic reforms. Tlio "infamous war tariff," ns ex omplltled by tho MeKlnloy bill, wns to bo wiped out of existence. What did tho reformers accomplish In tlmt direction? A timid, half-hearted iitaok resulted In a bill placing wool on tho free list ami reducing tho Industries on woolen manufactures, another placing llstcotou bagging, cotton ties, gins nnd cotton bugging machinery on the free list and a tldrd removals tho duty tin bmiluig twine. These bills passed the house but have pigeon-holed lu tho senate. More Interesting still was tho action of tho house, ou tho silver question. Tito coinage committee was friendly to free coinage—tho free silver men having or giuilzed tho house—mid a free silver bill was quickly reported. The appropriations aro over ¥1)00,000, 000 as against $40:1,000,000, and In or dor to iuako tho faintest pretense of economy tho world's fair appropriation has boon scaled down to $2,500,00'. uiul not a slnglo public building bill has been passed.

Congressman Turner of Georgia, young enough in years to be a representative of tho new south, but like all other democratic members from his section he holds to the doctrlno of the old ch'xip slave labor south on the arid' question, nnd repeats word for word tho arguments of tho old labor- owning, frce-trudo statesmen, and asserts that tho planters nro robbed by tho tariff on tho tics and bagging •n which they bind their cotton bales \s a mutter of fact tho planters buy their cotton ties as metal nnd sell them at full weight on the bales as though (hoy were so much cotton, and thus eali/.e a handsome profit on the traus- iction At tho rate of 2 1-5 cents a pound the American Kconomlst cnleu- nles that Hie total amount of ties required to bale tho southern cotton crop would cost under tho MeKlnloy tariff $550,000. But Uieso ties which the lunlers buy at Uio rnto of 21-5 cents pound aro sold with the bales of cotton which Uiey bbid and us though they were part and parcel of tho sumo, at tho average rate of 7 cents a pound tho planter thus getting $1,750,000 for tho ties which cost them $550,000, realizing a profit of $1,200,000, or n gain of over three hundred per cent, on tho Investment. it Is not frequently tho caso that men who have a "fat thing" think it host to disguise tho fact and to complain of poverty and hardship while In the act of gorging themselves with excessive profits such a praotlco might or- liniiilly bo excused or overlooked, oven In tho chivalrous cotton planter, who claims that his unsordld soul la far above the love of gain, but when dissatisfied Willi a gain ot 1100 per cent, ho not only dommuls more, but Insists thut ho shall obtain It through tho cheapening of tho white labor employed in northern factories, it is certainly time to protest. Revamping ancient Bourbouism, this same Turner, of Georgia, openly announced tho deslro of the south not merely for to cheapen northern whllo labor but declared Unit the free cotton lies and cotton bagging bill would enable the states of Georgia, Alabama Mississippi, Texas and South Carolina to employ their convicts hotter than they arc now employed, and dedicate their labor to tho niaiiufiictiiro of tliose things so necessary to Uio chlnf Industry of the citizens of thoso states.

They ilo- slro free foreign ninohlnory and materials, so that they can put their convicts into Immediate competition with freo whllo worklugmoii lu northern factories and cheapen Uielr output to tho poultenUnry lovel. Then they will iuako a greater profit than tho present ono of 800 per cent, on their col ton lies or bugging, und it is possible that they will conso to wall over their poverty and the hardship of paying decent prices that white workluginou may receive decent wages, But thore Is no certainty that oven thou (heir gred for gain nt tho oxpenso of northern labor would bo satisfied. over the defeat of Blaine and if 1 proposed to sulk. They insisted that the parly interests required a noii-l'actional organization, and proposed that the practice of the party previous lo I8Si> should be followed by tho election ol two chairmen, one of the National Coiu- niito to servo four years and one of the campaign commile to serve during the campaign. It was suggested thut the president should bu allowed to select the campaign committee inside or outside the membership of the national committee itself, as permitted and suggested by the national convention at .Minneapolis, and that the national committee, should delegate Its entire fiower to this campaign committee for the campaign. This would give to the c.uididutes the full control and power of the commit too for the whole campaign, and yet leave tho national committee to resume after the election its original functions and become representative of the party itself and its future, not of the past, and merely of lis two recent candidates for office.

ICiur -I iv tit J.OHH //,- r Jtttllily JIrkrrn For tho person who Invents a sufo sort of pocket for women's wutches, a largo fortune und tho gratitude of thousands ure awaiting. Women uro beginning to grow tired of having their slender chains jerked a crowd and finding themselves watchloss. They don't enjoy oven hunting vainly for the Uuiepieco which was butotucd into Uio front of their bodice, but which bus slipped iu and IH finally discovered two inches above their waistbands and far ou one side. Tho pretty toys aro continuously bong lost, as Uiey slip down under t lie bodices nuil bulls aud drop onto the ground. If you uro determined to wear your watch like tho rest of womankind — thrust into your bodice—it is u good idea to huvo sewed securely to Uio iniug of each waist ouo of tlio patent 'listening hooks which have to bo pressed in order to puss over any thing. Hasp this over the big link at the end of your chain and you ure coniparlllve- safe. A strong-handed thief may break tho chain, but caunot capture tlio watch. If this is impossible, it Is it any rate always easy to fasten a fancy pin through the end of the chain, which will keep It from slipping and render it a little less easy to grub. Another excellent plan would bo to have a small pocket sewed to the lln- lug of each bodice the place where It Is natural lo slip Uio watch. This locket could open toward the front and when the watch Is thrust In could fasten by means of ono of th patent loops to an eyelet crocheted ou the lining *f the bodice. With the watch securely tucked In such a respectable, oven with the chain dangling dalntly down tho front of the gown, n woman might safely venture Into a crowd, and not bo obliged to keep ono hand on her breast to protect her property.—N.

There is nn inherent longing deep Iu tho heart of each woman plodding ilong tlio earth of ours to bo attractive and she thrives on admiration and grows plump at tho rate of fivo pounds a week If a Utile lovo should do thrown in her way. But the grout question of how to gain this nffectlon, this love and admiration which each mini bus it In his power to give, Is sometimes of n rat'ior puzzling nature to girls, especially Uioso who huvo no personal charms to attract. In conversation tlio other day some charming girls wore complaining of their luck of talent and plain features, it was suggested to them to make a study of the art of being pleasant "Girls you don't know what an effect continued pleusautness bus upon a man," A woman who inukes Uio niaii whom she loves believe thut she knows not Uio moaning of worry, and who always has for hint a pleasant smllo and a word of welcome, will find Uiat tender thoughts of nor uro creeping down Into his heart more than tlio beauty whom she ou- vlesvles. Tho only way always to bo bo pleasant is to iuako a study of tlio art aud convert It Into a science and study it as such. A pleasant womau lu tho home is like a gleam of God'a brightest sunshine.
