Worse and worse, TJght 1 shudder nt the remembrance even at this date, but among nil that immense collection of pictures, there was none before which the crowd so persistently' lingered. It was ft second sea sceiie. Under a glftiing tropical skj, where the BUB gleamed like a ball of flrc, floated a rnft, upon n sea whose wnves wore copper-hued ntid scorching. Upon the rnft Wore three humntt forms. One, a. Worn- nn so grnnrlJy proportlonod t so wondrously beautiful, that you Instinctively envied death her possession. She clasped n babe lovingly to her brfred breast, ns If the mother love had BMight oven in death to prolong 1 the feeble life. The other form wns,that of n man, as superbly formed and proportioned ns that of the woman. Death hud claimed them all. as was proved by thdr glassy eyes nnd upturned faces, helpless under tho burning sun. Here ngain was the grayish pallor, horribly Suggestive of decay. As I gazed fascinated by the. very horror of the scone, a messenger put-n note in my Jmiul. It wns from Vnl- ette, urging me to come to him nt once, ns he was ill. 1 Instantly left the building, nor paused until I stood by his bedside.' A-Plater of Charity and nn old gray beard'of.a doctor were In attendance. It was Roman fever, and would likely prove fatal, was the verdict. Valetto bore the 'spntenco bravely, aud then requested to be lc»ft alone with me. "I shall be delirious In a moment," he said grasping my hand engorly. "so must talk fnst. Behind yon curtalu yon will find a largo box of which this is the key," pushing one Into my hand; "take one look at Its contents, and then see It Inid In consecrated ground. When I am dend lay me beside it. Keep my secret—promise—promise." Tho last words cnme gaspingly, nnd ere I could reply he sunk into unconsciousness. I hastily recalled the attendants, then with a pitying glance nt tlie doomed man, lifted the curtain behind'which I had never been, notwithstanding my intimacy with yalett'e. There .was nothing remarkable in tlie ttic box of which he had spoken. It was large, and stood nprighi against the woll, where the afternoon light streamed full upon it." • ' ' . Inserting the key fn tho lock, I nuicli- ly swung open the door. A cry of horror had near escaped me as 'its con-, tents were thus revealed. Its sides were padded and lined with white satin and costly lace. .In the center, lii a kneeling posture, was the half nude form of . dead woman. Th»fc oiMglnal of nil his horrible pictures.I saw at once, for here were the superb limbs and wondrous beauty. Here was tho model, about whom we had made so many conjectures. The embnlmer's work had been skillfully done, but an unmistakable charnel house odor came to my nostrils and I hastene.d y ,.to close..andl lock the door, destined never to be'reopened..'. • ' I lost 'no time 1 in 'seeing tho -fearful thing under ground, although it Was lying and a generous use of gold. - -•-..,-• . • I then devoted myself tp Valette's care,'and had the satisfaction of seeing him recover. Slajyly it is true, and with,many relapses, but one day, six mouths later wo sailed away from Rome together. In a lou$ voyage around the world he recovered health and spirits, and the love he gave me fully repaid me for all the sacrifices I had made In order to be with him. It was months ere the subject of his model was mentioned between us, but one day, in the wilds of a Brazilian forest, he told me a strange story of wrong-doing and sorrow. He had loved the beautiful woman whose form I had laid away, but she was'-the...wife., of another, '.,..•>•. In life he could not possess her, but when Death laid his icy hand upon her, he had stolen her body away, and lived in its presence for months, half*mad, and wholly heart-broken. He shuddered at the remembrance of those fearful months, wondering now, in his sanity, how he could over have boon possessed of such juorbld mad-- ,uesg,.nnd he has-never slnpe lookeij upon those terrible pictures.

Dft mage, who is now tout-ing in Australian cities, ha< chosen 66 the subject for to-day's softnon thtoUsfh the pw&s! "Woflh Living" the text being tnkett from Laments, titttts t*t i 80. "Where* fore dbth allvitigmati j-omttlain?" If Wo leave to the evolutionists to fUess where we came from and to the theologians to prophecy where we are ffoihg to, we still have left for consideration the Important fact that we are here. There may be s< mo doubt nbout where the river rises and some dfttbt where the river emp ies, but there can be no doubt about the fact that we ore sailing on it. So 1 am nob surprised that, everybody asks the question, "Is life wor, th l,ving?'V : . Solomon in hts unhappy moments*' says It Is not "Vanity," "vexation of spirit." "no good," are his estimate. 'J ho fact is tliat t-olomon was at onetime a i olycritnmt and that toured his disposition. One xvife makes a man linppy; more lhan one makes him Wretched. ]Jut Solomon was converted from jolygamy to monogamy, atid the last words he ever wrote, as far as we can read tlu-m, were the words "mountains of spices." lint Jeremiah says in my text life is worth living. In a bcok supposed to be doleful, nnd Irgubric'Us, und sepiilchral. and entitled "Lan.entntlons," lie plainly intimates that tho blessing of mertly living is PO great and grand a blessing' thnt though a man Imve piled on him all mist'i rtunc's und disasters he lias no rigl t to complain. 'Jhe author of my tt-xt cries out in startling iniona- tii n to all lands nud to all centuries, "\Vlierefore do»s a living man complain?" A diversity of opinion in our time as well as in olden time. Here is a young man of light .hair, and blue e.ves, imd sound digestion, and generous salary, und happily affianced, and on tins wny to become a purtner in a commercial firm of which ho is an important clerk. Ask him whether life is worth living. .He will. 11 laugh iu-.- ypur face , and say: "Yes7 yes; yes'l ' Here is a man who has come to the fortU-s. He is at the tip-top of the hill of life. Every step has been a stuin- b'.e and a bruise. The people he trusted have turned out deserters, and the money he has honestly made he has been cheated out of. His nerves are out of tune..,: He has poor .appe- tito, and all the fojd he uoes, eat does not assimilate. Forty, miles climbing up the hill of, life have been to him like climbing .tlie -Matterhorn, nnd tlfcre are foriy miles vet to go dovvn, and descent is always more dangerous than aseeni Ask him whether life is worth living, and he will drawl out in shivering and lugubrious and appalling negative, "No, no, no!" H.ovv are we to decide this matter righteously and intelligently? You will find ih« same man ; vacillating, oscillating iri his opinion froin dejection to exuberance, and if he tie very niercuriul in his temperament it will depend very much upon which way the wind biows. If tho wind blow from .the northwest and you aslv him, he will sny, "Yes;" and if it blow from the northeast and you ask him, he will sny, "No." How are we then to get the question righteously an- Bwered? Suppose we cail all nations together in a great convention on pastern or western hemisphere, and let all those who are in tlie affirmative f ay . "Aye" and all those who are in tlie negative say "No." While there would bo hundreds of thousands who would answer in the affirmative, there would be more millions who would-answer in the negative, and : be-' cause of the greater number who have sorrow and misfortune and trouble the "Noe»" would hove it The answer 1 fhull g-ive will be different from either, and it will 1 commend itself. to all who hear me this day as the right answer. If you ask mo "Is life worth living-?" 1 answer, it all depends upon the kind of life you live, In the first place, I remark, that a life of mere money getting is always a f n i hi re, because you will never gut as much as you want. The poorest poo- pie in this country are the richest, and next to them those who apu half as rich. There is not a scissors griud- er on the streets «^f New 'York or Brooklyn who is so anxious to make money as • these men who liavo piled; up fortunes yi'ar after year in store houses, }n government securities, in tenement IIOUSOK, in whole oily blocks. You ought to see th< m ,jump when they hear the fire bell ring. You ought to see them in their excitement when some pank explodes. You ought to see their ag-Uution wlion thero is proposed a reformation Jn the Their pem«s uemble like Hlrinp. but »Q mubiq in the vibration. 1'hey re^d the ' mon prima d&nhas, and they offer fever# indne«m6nfe tot Happiness to Cottie and live thefts, bbt happiness wilt not coins.

They make thfcif eratoways triumphal arcltes; she will hot ride undef them. They set & golden throne befdre a golden plate; she turns away from the banquet They call to lief from upholstered balcony; eh6 will not lift ten. Mark you, this is the fall- tire of those who have had large ad' cumulation. And then you must take into cemsid* eration that the vast majority of those Who make the dominant idea of life money- getting fall far short of affluence, It Is estimated that only about two out of a hundred business men have anything' worthy the name of success, A man who spends his* life with the one dominant idea of financial accumulation spends a life not worth living.,, . ;'"" 8o-;the idea of Wdrl'djy.,approval. If that be dominant in a maVs life he is miserable. The two most unfortunate men in this country for the six months of next Presidential campaign will be tho two men nominated for the Presidency. Ihe reservoirs of abuse, and diatribe, and malediction xvill gradually fill up, gallon .above gallon, hogshead above hogshead, and about autumn these two reservoirs will be brimming full, and a hose will be attached to each one, and It will play away on these nominees, and they will have to stand it, and take the abuse, and the falsehood, and .the caricature, aud the anathema, and the caterwauling, and the filth, and they will-be rolled in it and rolled over and over in it until they are choked, and submerged, and strangulated, and at every sign of returning consciousness they will be barked at by all the hounds of political parties from ocean to ocean. And yet, there are a hundred men to-day struggling for that privilege, ' and there are thousands of men who are helping them in the struggle. Now. that is not a life worth living. You can get slandered and abused cheaper than thatl Take it on asmaller scale. Do n.ot be BO ambitious to have a whole reservoir rolled over on you. But what you see in. the matter of high Apolitical preferment you see in every community in the struggle for what is called social position. Tens of thousands of people trying 1 to get into that realm, and they are under terrific tension. What is social position? It is a difficult thing to de- line, but we all know whatit is. Good morals and intelligence are not necessary, but wealth, or tho show of wealth, is absolutely indispensable. There are men to-day as ^no'tbripusif or their libertinism as the night is famous for its darkness who move in what is called high, social position. There are hundreds of out-and-out rakes in American society whoso names are Ihe University, stands in & pulpit influential, ftnd preaches judgment ?,ftMi.*.teru- aiid thousands during his ministry life blessed. Tho oih&r Irtd who got the collegiate education goes into the law, and thence into legisla* tive halls, and nfter a while he com' mahds listening 1 senates as he makes a plea for the downtrodden and the outcast One of the younger bnys be* comes a merchant starling at tlie foot of tho ladder, but climbing' on up until his success and his philanthropies are recognized all over the land. The other son stays at home because he prefers farming? life, and then he thinks he Will be able to tike care of father and mother whett the? get old. Of the two daughters, when the war broke out, one went through the hospitals of Pittsbtirg 1 Landing ahd For* tress Monroe cheering up the dying 1 and homesick and taking the last message to kindred faraway. So that every time Christ thought of her he 6a!d, as. of old, "The same is my sister and mother." The other daughter has a bright home of her own, a*d in .the afternoon or the forenoon, when she has been devoted, to her household, she goes forth to hunt up ih'c sick and to encourage the discouraged, leaving smiles and benediction all along the way. But one day there start flve telegrams from the village for these five absent ones, saying: "Come, mother is dangerously ill." But before they can be ready to start they receive another telegram, Baying: ' Come, mother is dead." The old neighbors gather in the old farm house to do the last 'offices of respect But as that farming son, and tho clergyman, and the senator, and the merchant and the two daughters stand by the casket of the dead mother taking the last look, or lifting their little children to see once more tho face of .dear, old grandma, I want to ask that group around the casket one question: "Do you really think* her life was worth living?" A life for God, a life for others, a life of usefulness, a useful life, a Christian life is always worth living. Neither would I have hard work to persuade you that Grace Darling lived a life worth living—the heroine of tho lifeboat. You are not wondering that tho duchess of Northumberland came to see her and that people of all lauds asked for her lighthouse, and that the proprietor of tho-Adelphi theater in Philadelphia offered her 8100 a night just to sit in the lifeboat while some shipwreck scene was being enacted. • •, . But I know the thoughts in the minds of hundreds who read this. You say: "While I know all these lived lives worth living, I don't think my life amounts to-much." Ah! my friends, whether you lead a life con- spicuous'or inconspicuous, it is worth living, if, v .you live aright And! want my next sentence to go down into the depths of all your souls. You are to be rewarded, not according to tho greatness of your work, not according to the holy industries with which you mentioned among the distinguished employed "the talents you really pos- guests at the great levees. They have ] sessed The majority of the crowns nnnexed^all the known vices and are I of heaven will not be given to people lonpmg for other worlds of diabolism J wlt h ten talents, for most of them morals are .not of the exalted in the morning with n concern- op to conquer. Good necessary in many circles of society. Neither is intelligence necessary. You find in that realm men '• who would not know an adverb frpm an adiective if they met it a hundred times a day, and who could not write a letter of acceptance or regrets without the aid of a secretary. They buv their libraries by the square yard, only anxious to have the binding Russian. Their ignorance is positively sublime. Making 1 English grammar almost disreputabla Aud yet the finest parlors open before them. Good morals an.'l« r intelligence are not necessary, but'wealth, or a show of wealth, is positively indis- pensible. It does not make any difference how you got your wealth, if you onlygpt it, The btfet way for you to get into social position is for you to buy a large amount on credit, then put your property in your wife's name, have a few preferred creditors, and then make an assignment Then disappear from the community until tlie bv-eeae is over and then come back and start in tho same business. Do you not see how beautifully that will put out all the people who are in competition, with vou and.try ing to make an honest living? How quickly it will pret you into high social position! What is the use of forty or fifty years of hard work whpn you can by two or three bright strokes make a great fortune? Ah! my friends, when you really lose your money, how quick .they will let you drop, and the higher you eret the harder'you will drop.''

The vast majority of the crowns of heaven will be given to people who had one talent, but gave it all to God, And remember that our life'hero is introductory to another. It is the vestibule to a palace; but who despises the door of the Madeleine because there are grander glories within? Your life if rightly lived is the first bar of an eternal oratorio, and who despises the first note of Haydn's symphonies? And the life you live now is all the more worth living because ifc opens into a life that shall never end, and tho last letter of the word "time" is" the first letter of the word "eternity^ __^ CHIEFLY CHAFF 1 .
