'«us-looklng man, the uncle of (me of - tny pupils, who presented him to me < with eager haste, and Inter informed ' tne thai "Uucfr.

Som-3 poor " music le.-icbefti would have b«oii flattered by his attentions, but to uie they were obnoxious in tho extreme. But , .tlie first time I hinte-l to him that it "did nob please mo to have Utin encountering mo at street corners and unexpected places for the purports of ivalk- hiil home with me, lie gnvo mo a Ptnngp look, and hinted something about the loss of my pupil, his niece. So I warned him in time, and at last submitted to his society. I knew thnt I had a pretty face, Mr. Van Alstyre took t every opportunity to remind me of it. , 'and 10 show u sort; of infatuation for uic, which 'at last began to alarm inc 'greatly. One day, while walking along at my ,slde ns I hastened home—homo to my welched-.shelter and the little sister who had been quite ill for several days —Mr. Van Alstync brought matters to :i crisis. He was holding his umbrella 'over ray head to protect me from tho falling rntu, nnd in a hasty way, scarce- ,ly looking me in the eyes, he asked me ' to become his wife. , The thought startled me. It cnmc ' upon me like a blow. It was horrible to even think of such a thing! I trembled with indignation. "Oh, no—no, indeed!" I faltered. "I .could never tUiuk of such a tiling, Mr. ,Van Alstyue." ; '•Do you cam for any one else?" lie demanded. I shook my head. Why, I had scarcely n man acquaintance, and so I informed him. "1 have learned to love you," he said, Jbluntly, "and although you are only a poor music teacher, and I might marry 'almost any woman in the city, that I might take a fancy to, for the pretty dears are all fond of money, and I have plenty of it, still I only want you. I ask you to marry mo openly and • honorably, Louise!" "You dare not ask me to marry you otherwise," I retorted. "Bocausi? I am poor is no reason why I should be sub- jpcted to an insult." His red face grew redder thnu ever; lie gnawed his blond > mustache furiously. ' "Well, what is your answer?" he asked, at length. "I do not love you. Mr. Van Alstyue," I faltered, "of course, it is out of the question to marry a man I do not love." "But—you love no ono else," he persisted—"and will learn to care for me In time. Be iny wife, Louise, and I will wait for love to come to you." .Just then I lifted my head, and my eyes chanced to meet the gaze of a pair of handsome dark eyes. A young man was passing; a young man whom I had met many times upon my way liomc, and the expression of his eyM, bent upon my face, seemed full of interest, and a sort of warnhig. He looked as though lie knew and disapproved of my companion. I noticed that Van Alstyne nodded Slightly to tho gentleman. "Who is that young man?" I asked, curiously. "I meet him so often, he seems almost like an acquaintance," My companion frowned. "Only a medical student," he returned, shortly, "He is connected with one of the city hospitals, His name is Winston—Arthur Winston. But really, fcouise, this is uupardonable. I ask the most serious question I ever asked any woman before, and you answer my questions about Arthur Winston," , : "I beg your pardon, Mr. Van Alstyne," I returned/humbly, for if I.Jpst. fiis interest altogether, I trembled to think of tlie prompt paying pupils wliora he miglit influence to leave me, I^OT even thoii I comprehended the'su- preme selfishness of the man's nature. His face/cleared. • , "You will give me your answer eopn," ho asked, eagerly. "Here we at your door. Let me, "porno to- ftt ift ffiifld fifid J sUuddered.

But At thtif Wiastoa was one of the visiting students at the hospital, nnd t soon learned to find In htm a help and a Comfort, He remained nt Iho hospital altogether, and -gave all his time and attention tP the diphtheria cftscs, and especially Mslo's wise, tinder his cafe aud skill she begin to ;iH|)fov6j nad strange, to say t I did not take the disease. . ( Elsie looked ttpon Doctor Winston-" ns he Wtts called— With reverence, for she knew that to his skill she Owed her life. And 1— t had long ago began to look upon hltn with something more than reverence! for all the love of my heart was floured forth nt his shrine. I knew that he loved me, but we were both very poof, and marriage seemed folly for Us to contemplate. • One day while going to the nearest drug store for nn errand for Elsie, I met Mr. Vnn Alstyne face to face. He recoiled—then held out his baud. "She is better?" he asked. "I could not risk my own life by coming to you, Louise, but now that your .sister Is better - " "Do not trouble yourself to come at all," I interposed, haugflitily. "Your conduct has proven your selfish baseness. And, besides, I detest you, and would not uiarry you were you the last man in the world." He fell back with a muttered imprecation. But I waited for nothing more, and hastened back to the hospital. • I met Arthur Winston In the hall outside tho ward where Elsie lay. Something In my face made him start; then lie took niy hand and led nio into a private, room. "Here, rear, sit down and rest yourself," he said, in that sweet, gentle way, which always wins with a woman. "Something has occurred to annoy you. Tell me, will you?" •'•';• And I did. I began at the beginning and told Arthur .-my whole story. 'His face was very pale when -I had finished. "My love of loves!" ho cried. "Oh, Louise, I have loved yen- 'so long and dearly. I have loved .you over i since the time— how long ago It seems— when we used to meet on the street. , That Van Alstyne is a wicked man. , There- is some ulterior reason, some hidden object in his asking you to marry hlru— I am convinced of It." A golden hour f ollowed, ' and : : whe'n we parted I had promised to be Ar,- thur's wife— poverty and all— in a day's time. Elsie was nearly well— all danger over; no reason for de}ay... And, besides, I was afraid of •Miv.jA'an-.-Al- >tyne— secretly afraid. ...'..' , ; But after all, he could not;., harm mo. I became Arthur Winston's' , wife, and then soon after . discovered "the secret of Mr. Van Alstync's affection for 'mo. Elsie and I prove'd to ba, .heirs-nt-law to an 'immense estate belonging to my mother's father, and no one in the city but Mr. Van . Alsty'ne, .who was a shrewd scheming lawyer,, knew- anything about it. And so I won tho love of niy life, and Providence had blessed us with wealth also. -Is' not thnt a sat- is f actor j' ending to my story V; • .' • ACID FOR MAKING SUGAR. A Cni'lonH Process Which, 1 Hnw Jfc'pl TVith Some SUCCCMB In France,•. ' A very novel method of making sugar has been, patented in France by M.- Pellegrini, says the American. Architect, Sugar is,; chemically, a compound of carbon, oxygen, and hydrpgon, in such proportions tliat if .carbonic acid, water and certain kinds of illuminating gas could be persuaded ,to vmite, in the proper quantities the composition of sugar would be' exactly, imitated. Hitherto no one has been able to inake sugar by mixing water with'.two,-kinds of gas, pivt M.. Pellegrini claims to have succeeded. The apparatus he uses consists of a large block of pumice stone, cleansed by soaking, first •• in sulphuric acid and then in,.water, which is set in an iron box plated with .nickel inK side. The length of the box is three times that of tho pumice stone block, which is tightly, fitted into the middle, and pipes are arranged to convey the ingredients to the empty ends of the box, as required. 'Two of them enter from the sides, and serve to bring/tear-- bonlc acid and -hydro-carbon gas,/while another pipe from .above branches so as to reach both empty portions of tho box and convoys steam. All tho pipes arc fitted with"vulvo and pressure gauges. •' Another pipe, at the bottom of tho box,, serves as an piitlpt, At 'first this pipe is closed, : as is also the steam pipe from above, and carbonic acid is forced into one end pf tho box, while ethyl'eiie gas is forced into the vither, uider equal pressure and in'equal volumes. A few minutes later tho steam valve above is opened and tjio steam forced in Bunder the < same pressure, As the giisos unite the pressure fnlls, 60 thnt tho supply of each must IK; kept corstaut. At the end of half an hour the supply of gns Is shut off, th.? outlet pipe is opened and ono of the chambers Is found to be filled with syrup, containing 83 per cent 'of sugar. The syrup is drawn'off fpr refining, ard as soon as the apparatus is cool it is ready for a fresh cka'rge. The ethylene gus can bo obtained by roast.ijig rosin or grease, but &jf, Pellegrini's patent covers other hydro-carbons, such as petroleum products. Tho explanation Is that the three gases are condensed in the pores qf tho jiumlce stone and there uiilto; but M. Mumnene, who has made S.OWG experiments, -declares this to be doubtful, and In Cosmos expresses dmbt an tp the success pf the process.

I said, • 'Cafa. it be possible that this "is all there was of this reputed wonderful place?" And this is the case in many other instances. There are' fruits, in Westchester County and. on Long Island! farms far better than the pomegranates and apricots of Bible times. Through all the ages'- there have ;been scenes of festivity, and the wealthy man of my text plans a great entertainment, and invites his friends. If one builds a a beautiful home, he wants his ac-' quaintnnces' to come and enjoy it If one buys an exquisite picture, he wants his friends to come and appreciate, it; and it was a laudable thing when the wealthy man of^ my text, happy himself, 'wanted to make other people happy. And so the invitations Went out; but; something went very much wrong. JYou Can imagine the embarrassment of any one who,, has provided, a grand feast when he finds out that the guests invited do not intend to Come. There is nothing that so provokes the master of the feast as that. '".-'. : . ! "Wollj these people invited u to this great banquet of tho text made most frivolous, excuses. The fact -was, I suppose, that some of them were offended that this man had succeeded so much-better in the world than they had. There are people in 1 all occupation!? and professions who consider it a '-ttTong to them that anybody else is advanced. I suppose these, people invited to the feast said a.mong themselves, "AYe are not going! to administer to that man's vanity, he is proud enough now; we won't go; beside that, we could all give.' .parties if >we made our money . the Way. that man makes .his."' . (! -'• .,./', So when the messengers went out with the invitations there was a unanimous refusal. One man said, ','Oh, I haVe bought a farm, and I must'go and look at it!" lie was'a land speculator, and had no business to buy land until he knew about it. A frivolous ex 1 cuse. . Another man said, .''I have bought five yoke of oxen." The probability is he was a speculator in live stock. He ought to have known about tho oxen before he bought them. Beside that, if he had been Very anxious to get to. the feast, ho : could have hooked them up and di'iven them on the road thefr'e. Another frivolous excuse. Another man said, "Oh, I have married a wife, and: I can't come;" when if he had said to his wife, "I have an invitation to a splendid dinner; it is highly complimentary to me: I should very much like to go; will you go along with me?" she would have said, "To be sure I will go." Another frivolous excuse. The fact was that they did not want to go. "Now," said tlie great man of the feasti "1 will not be defeated in this matter; I have 'with an honest purpose provided a banquet, and there are scores of; people who would like to come if they were only invited. Here, my man, here, you go out, and -when you find a blind man, give him your arm and fetch him in; and when you find a lame man, give him a crutch and fetch him in; nnd when you find a poor man, tell'hjm that there is a plate for him in my mansion; and •when you find some one who is so ragge'd ana wretched that he has never been invited anywhere, then, by by the kindest tenderness and the most loving invitation any one ever hftd, compel him to come in," Oh, my friends, it requires no acuteness' on my part, or on your part, to see in all this affair that religion is a banquet. The table was set in Palestine a good many years ago, and the di&ciples gathered around it, and they thought they would have a good time all by themselves, but while they sat by 1he table the leaves began to grow and spread, end one leaf went to the east and another leaf went to the west, until the whole earth was covered np with them, and the clusters from the heavenly vineyard were piled up on the board, and the trumpets and harps of eternity made up the orchestra, and as this wine of God is pressed to the lips of a sinning, bleeding, suffering, dying, groaning world, a voice breaks from the heavens, saying, "Drink, O friends; yea, drink, 0 beloved!" O blessed Lord Jesus, the best friend I ever had, the best friend any map ever had, was there ever such a table? Was there ever such a banquet? Frpm the cross uplifted high, . Wnere'the Saviour designs to die, "What melodious sounds I hear Bursting unit he ravished ear ! Heaven's redeeming work is done, Come, and •welcome; ejnner, come.

All the accessories were favorable, Tners'was only one light 3tt nil the Caihedl-kl, 'and that & faint taper on the altar. I looked up into the vefcei-able arches atid saw the shadows of cen toffies, and When the Ofgati awdke, the ( Cathedral awoke, and all the atdhes seemed to lift and quiver as the music 1 came under them That'instrumetif did not seem to be oiade out of Wood and metal,- but out ot human hearts, so wonderfully did it pulsate -with every motion; now laughing" like a; child, now sobbing like a tempest"* At one moment the Music would .die away until you could hear tfte cricket chifp outside the wall, and then it would roll up until it seemed as if the surge of the sea and the crash of an avalanche had struck the organ pipes at the same moment At one time that night it seemed as if a squadron of spirits weeping' up from earth had met a squadron qf descending angels whose glory beat back the woe. Standing there and .looking at the dim taper on the altar .of the cathedral, I said: "How much like many a Christian's life! .Shadows hover, and sometimes his hope is dim, and faint, and flickering, like a taper on the altar. But at \vhat time God wills, the heavens break forth with music upon his soul, and the.air becomes resonant as the angels of God beat it with their shining sceptres." Oh,"the Lord God ha? many fair and beautiful daughters; but the fairest of them all is she whose ways are pleasantness and whose paths are peace! Now, my brothers and sisters —for I have a right to call you also— I know some people look back on their ancestral line, and they see they are descended from the Puritans or Huguenots, and they rejoice in that; but I look back on my ancestral line, and I see therein such a mingling and mixture of the blood of all nationalities that I feel akin to all the world, and by the blood of the Son of God, who died for all people, I address you in the bonds of universal brotherhood. I come out as only a servant, bringing an invitation to a party, and I put it into your hand, saying, "Come, for all things are now ready," and I urge it upon you and continue to urge it, and, before I get through, I hope, by the blessing of God, to compel you to come,in. We'must take care how wo give tlie invitation. My Christian friends, I think some times we have just gone opposite to Christ's command, and we have compelled people to stay out Some, times our elaborated instructions have been the hindrance. Wo graduate from our theological seminaries on stilts, and it takes five or six years before we can come down and stand right beside the great masses of the people, learning their joys, sorrows, victories, defeats. We got our heads so brimful of theological wisdom that we have to stand very straight lest they spill over. Now, what do the great masses of the people care about the technicalities of religion? What do they care about the hypostatic union or the difference between sub-lapsarian and suprarlapsarian?/ What do they care for your profound explanations, clear as a London fog? When a man is drowning he does not want you to stand by the dock and describe the nature of the water into which he has fallen, and tell him there are two parts hydrogen gas and one of oxygen ' gas, within common density of thirty- nine Fahrenheit, turning to steam under a common atmospheric pressure t of two hundred and twelve. He does not want a chemical lecture on water; he wants a rope. - Oh my friends, the curse of, God on the church, it seems to me, in this day, is metaphysics. We speak in an unknown tongue in our Sabbath schools, and in our religious assemblages, and in our pulpits, and bow can people be saved unless they understand us? We put on bur official powns, and we think the two silk balloons flapping at the elobws of a preacher give him great sanctity. The river of God's truth flows down before us pure and clear as crystal; but we take our thoological stick and stir it up, and stir it up, until we can not see the -bottom. Oh, for the simplicity of Christ -in all our instructions—the simplicity he practiced when standing among the people, he took a lily, and said, "There is a lesson of the way I will clothe you;" and, pointipg to a raven, said, "There is a lesson of the way I will feed you; consider the lilies—behold the fowls." I think often in our religious instructions we compel people to stay out by pur church architecture. Pepple come jn and they find things angular, and cold, and stiff, and they go away never again to come; when the .church ought to be a great home circle, everybody having a, hymn book, giving half of it tp the one next tp ni>n, every pne who has a hand tp shake hands, s,hal?ipg hands— the ctyurcft architecture and tbe phuroh, surroundings, saying 1 tP the people,' "Cpme jn »nd be at homV' Instead of tbat, I think all these surround- ingg often compel the peppje to stay p«t.

One day he wad eliaibing amorig very dangerous places, and thought himself all alone, when he heard a Voice beneath him say, "Jfather, look out for the safe path, 1 att following.' 1 add he Idoked badk and he sftw that lie was climbing not Only for himself, but climbing for his bfiy. 0, let UB be sure and take •the safe path) Our children are -following, our partners in busines& are following", OUf neighbors are follow* ing, a great multitude stepping right on in our steps. 0, be sure and take the right path! Exhibit a Christian example, and so by your godly walk compel the peeple to come in. I think there is also work in the way of kindly admonition. I do not believe there is a person in this house who, if approached' in a kindly and brotherly manner, would refuse to listen. If you are rebuffed,.it is because you lack in -tact and co:.timon- sense. But oh, how much effective work there is in the'way of kindly adomnition! There are thousands of men all round about you who have never had one personal invitation to the cross. Give that one invitation, and you Would be surprised at the alacrity with which they would accept it I tell you to-day, my friends, of,a great salvation. Do you understand what it is to havp a Saviour? He took your place, He bore your sins. He wept your sorrows. He is here now to save your souL A'soldier, worn out in his country's service, took to the violin as a mode of earning his living. He was found in the streets of Vienna, playing his violin, but after.a while his hand became feeble and tremulous, and he could no more make music.' One:day, while he sat t'-.ere weeping, a man passed .along and said,-"My friend, are too old and too feeble; give me your violin;" and he took the man's violin, and began to discourse most exquisite music, and the people gathered around in larger and larger multitudes, and the aged man held his hat, and tho coin poured in and poured in until the hat was full. "Now," said the man who played tho violin, "put that coin in your pock« eta" The coin was put in tne old man's pockets. Then he'held his hat again, and the violinist played more sweetly than ever, and played until some of the people wept and some shouted. And again the hat was filled with coin. Then, the violinist dropped the instrument and passed off, and the whisper went, "Who is it? who is it?" and some one just . entering the crowd said, "Why, that is, Bucher, the great violinist, known all through the realm; yes, that is the great violinist." The fact was, he had just taken that man's place and assumed his poverty, and borne his burden, and played his music, and earned his livelihood, and made sacrifice for the poor old man. So the Lord Jesus Christ comes down, and he finds us in our spiritual penury, and across the strings of his own broken heart he strikes a sti'ain of infinite music, which wins 'the attention of earth and heaven. He takes our poverty. He plays our music. Ho weeps our sorrow. He dies our death. A sacrifice for you. • A sacrifice for me. Oh, will you accept this sacrifice 'now? I do not single out this and that man, and this and that woiflun. But I say all may come. The sacrifice is so great, all may be saved. Does it not seem to you as if heaven was very near? I can feel its breath on my cheek. God is near, Christ is near. The Holy Spirit is near. Ministering angels are near. Your glorified kindred in heaven near. Your glorified mother near. Your departed children near. Your redemption Is near, • PAPER POLES, fa '«SW§ Wk ,Se»r Ae; wg mkJM ~, I mm:. TO 'past They Are lighter, StlfTor and Stronjor Thau Wooden Ones. .One of. the latest uses to which -paper has been, turned is the making of telegraph poles. The paper pulp employed, is saturated with a/ mixture of borax, tallow and other fiubstances, The mass is cast in a mold with . a cone in the center,, formjny a hollow rod of any desired-.lepplh, the cross pieces being- held ,by woodoa keys driven in on either'side of the pole. The paper poles are said to be lighter and stronger than those of wood and to be unaffected by the 1 many weather influences which shorten the life of a wooden pole. It is doubtful, hpwever,whether the paper pole will come to be anytuing like a rival to the iron pole, which is now high in favor for the carrying of all Idnils of wire lines. The value of iron telegraph poles has been well tested under the most trying conditions on the lines .between JJurope and India, and again across avid stretches of country in Australia. Insects that eat o\it the core of everything in' the shape of wood, leaving the shell only, and bird borers that drill holes in the toughest of trees, let the iron poles pass, and .even wandering tribes cannot chop it up for fire-vYpod, although, down in, they have not yet quite go^ theii 1 trick pf making avro,w pf the/msujatpv? it Tfi» "sj»Vsi t^e yipjet calm, of evening, jusj Black »« Ink ndi66fe Which SorH6 cbefish ftgalnst tohat is good far •Tbe^,, feAsoftj as dflf-ord fflend Arfcetbn* WftM slifS. thuSlt; "Bo Md BO fca» b66n tafciti|!n*dlciilef(}l'&iolig tiaie. aad lefl'f' fihj> better."
