DBS DICE BOX stottd I f was night ifi the Sierra Madre of Mexico, and I swung in a haul 4 inock under the wide portico of a tudo adobe build-' ingj my home for the time being, Idlowfi as the Hacienda de Carmoti, , although not worthy of the name; so called, however, by the people of the camp, who drctvmed, as myself, of the •future of reduction works and numer- t '<Jns buildings to be erected from the 'proceeds of th<$ white metal that we "wet-c gouging so slowly from tho rocky fastness of nature. The houss, built on a precipitous bluff that rose •abruptly from tho bed of tho canyon, j-e&ted StfUio"extreme edge and commanded a view down the wild, rocky #orgc that stretched away some two miles to a small, mountain-hemmed Tftlley lying thousands of feet below. At'the foot of the bluff a mountain stream rushed and bounded around Jind over boulders of gigantic size, aud then gently fell in cascade after cascade into some deep, still pool, only to break away again and wind on down tho canyon in its inad rush for the sea, scorning, in the glimmer at the moonlight, like some enormous silver snake. With the mus'c of the waters came the soughing of the pines !W* the cool evening brecza swept gently up from the valley, bringing also a murmur of voices from the camp far below, ami tho shrill creak- inp oC the whim as it revolved at tho mouth of 'the shaft on the mountain .side, whore, in tho glare of a pine wood flre, the dusky forms of the men could be seen as they trampsd around and around, slowly winding on a massive drum a. seemingly endless rope from tho bowels of the earth. And as my hammock gently swayed I smoked, when— "Buooos noche, scnor;" and I was called back to reality with a start',' to find my. foreman, Miguel Soza, with the report and time of the men for tho day. After the accounts had been looked over and I was about to start on another visionary excursion up the Nile, Miguel, who had been for the past few moments leaning against tho house and looking down on the camp, removed the inevitable cigarette from his lips and said: "Caramba, senor! there is the devil to pay down in tho camp.

Grouped around ^vere feome txventy men and women engaged in boisterous conversation, while in a corner opposite the door stood Mariquita, a girl of about 16, tall and boautifnl, and possessing that languid grace which belongs only to women of the south. Her dress, ft goxvn of soft material, bright rod in color, had become tier ranged, and opening at the bosom exposed a white chitnlse that only partly concealed her heaving breasts; a wealth of dark hair fell in disorder far below.her waist, and from a face oval in shape and of a rich, creamy complexion, flashed eyes as black as night. Her lips, carmine tinted, parted and showed little white teeth, grinding together in anger, as she stood, a child and yet a woman, receiving with silent scorn the storm of abuse which her mother poured forth in a perfect torrent of language. As I reached tho woman I asked if she really intended to raffle her daughter, for such, from the conver-< sat ion, I judged to bo her purpose. ' "Si, senor— why not? I)o I not find her a husband she will go with that diablo of an Indio, and I will lose her forever. No man here has one hundred pesos, and I am poor. Raflld her? Yes, why notT True, the priest will not bo at Uaborgame for three months, but what matter? She can innrry then; it will be all the same." In the meantime five of tho mmers had managed to obtain twenty pesos each, which they were anxious; to, risk for the purchase of Mariquita, and the money bein'g handed ov«r. to the widow the dice was produc3d;'and on tho table that had been drawn into the center of the i-ooin th e throw- > ing began. The first man to throw was Carlos. Mendoza, a tall, swarthy-looking Mexican, who stood wrapped, in a- scrape of orange und purple. , His immense sombrero, resting on the back of his head, allowed a mop of coarse black hair to fall over his low fore-, head into his eyes. Raising the box, he brushed the hair aside, and after, slowly rattling the dico threw in silence-r-sixteon. Again tho dice,' rattled. — thirteen; aiut agaip— seven? teen; forty-six in all. • ': A murmur of applause from the spectators and Meudoza turned to: ward Mariquita, but something in he£ look quailed him and with a low laugh he turned -to watch tho throwing- of his opponents. The box passed. from one to another without avail and was now in tho hands of tho last thrower. Slowly he shook tho dice and then threw — seventeen: again—eighteen. The excitement was now intense in the silence',' broken only by the heavy breathing of the. onlookers^ and a muttered curse from Mendoza as he drew his sombrero down over his eyes, the last throw was made; the box was .lifted— two fours and an ace. Mcndoza won und with a glad cry ho sprang- toward Mariquita, but before he could reach her there was ti rush through the door, an arm passed around his neck and pressed his body slowly back; a flash of steel — a groan — again'' "a flush ot steel and the arm descended and Carlos Mendoza was dead on the floor. And there, with the knife still grasped in his hand, Komulo, the Indian, stood like a statue of bronze, naked but for a brecchclofch; his limbs like polished mahogany and his .eyes flashed firo from under his heavy dark hair that fell to his shoulders. For one moment he stood; then thev:o was a flash, the report of a re- vplver and Romulo tottered and sank to the floor, his back resting- against the wall. With a low cry of anguish Mariquita threw herself on her knees beside him, and while the tears coursed down her, cheek. she wiped away with her dress the blood that flowed from his lips and besouglit him to speak to her. ,_."Roinulo! Homulo! Caro mio! Ks- posa mio! Speak to me! Uod in heaven, tell • me you are not hurt, Romulo! Speak just one little word to Mariquita. Oh, God of my soul! Don't let him die! 1 .' And as Kornulo looked into her eyes and tried to speak a tremor' passed over him and the blood flowed, ug-iiiu from his lips. Th'J heart-rending cry und Mariquita was on his breast with her arms around his neck. "Romulo! My life, if thou must go, take me, too," With a superhuman effort the Indian raised himself, clasped her close with one arm,- the other raised, and the steel flashed for tho third time, and their bouls passed into eternity together. * * * Romulo and M4r!quittt rest in tho same 'grave on the canyon side beneath the pines, and a white stouo cross marks thp spot to this day, • .

Talmage, xvho is still absent oa his round-the-world tbur, has selected as the subject of to-day's sermon, through the press; "Hadassalii" the text chosen being" lister a i f: "And he brought up Hadassah." A beautiful child was born in tho capital of Persia. She was an orphan and a captive, her parents having been stolen from their isfaelitish home and carried to Shushan, and had died, leaving their daughter poor and in a strange land. But an Israelite who had, been carried into the same captivity was at 1 tractcd by the case of the orphan. Ho educated her in his holy religion, and under the roof of that good man this adopted child began to develop a sweet* ness and excellency of character if ever equalled, certainly never surpassed. Beautiful Hudassah! Could that adopted father ever spare her from his household' 1 ?'• Her artlessness; her girl* ish sports; her innocence; her orphanage, had wound themselves thoroughly around his heart, just us around each parent's heart among us there are tendrils climbing, and fastening and blossoming, and growing stronger. I expect he was like others who have loved ones at home—wondering sometimes if sickness will come, and death,, and bereavement. Alas! Worse than anything that the father expects happens to his adopted child. Ahasuerus, a princely scoundrel, demands that Hadassah, the . fairest one in all the kingdom';'become.his wife. Wo:rsc than death was marriage to such a. monster of iniquity! How great the change when this young woman left the home where God was worshipped and religion honored, to enter a palace devoted to pride, idolatry and sensuality! "As a lamb to the slaughter!" Ahasuerns knew not that his wife was a Jewess. At the instigation of the infamous - prime minister the king decreed that all the Jews in the land should be slain. Hadassah pleads the cause of her people, breaking through the rules of the court, and presenting herself in the very face of death, crying: "If I perish, I perish." Oh, it was a sad time among that enslaved people! They had all heard the decree concerning their death. Sorrow, gaunt and ghastly, sat in thousands of households, and mothers wildly pressed their infants to their breasts as the days of -massacre hastened on, praj'ing that the same sword stroke which slew the mother might also slay the child, rosebud and bud perishing iu tho same blast. But Hadasiiith is busy at court. The hard heart of the king is touched by her story, aud although he could not reverse his decree for the slaying- of tho Jews, he sent forth an order that they should arm themselves for defense. On horseback; on mules; on" dromedaries, messengers sped through the land bearing the king's dispatches, and a shout of joy went up from that enslaved people at the faint hope of success. I doubt not many u rusty blade was taken down and .sharpened. Unbearded youths grow stout as giants at the thought of defending mothers and sisters. Desperation strung up cowards into heroes, and fragile women grasping their weapons swung 1 them about tho cradles impatient for the time to strike the. blow in behalf of household and country. The day of execution dawned. Government officials, armed and drilled, cowed before the battle sh'out of the oppressed people. The cry of defeat rang back to tho palaces, but above the mountains of dead, above 75,000 crushed and mangled corpses sounded the triumph of the delivered Jews, und their enthusiasm was as when the Highlanders come- to tho relief of Lucknow, and the English army which stood in the very jaws of death, at the sudden hope of assistance and rescue, lifted the shout above belching cannon and the death-groan of hosts, crying, "We are haved! We are saved!" My subject affords me opportunity of illustrating what Christian character may be under the greatest disadvantages. There is no .Christian now 'exactly what he wants to be. Your standard is much higher than uny* thing you have attained unto. Jf there be any man so puffed up UH to be throroughly satis- fled with the amount of excellency he bus already attained, I have nothing to buy to t>uch a one. -But to those who are dissatisfied with past uttaininentb, who arc toiling under disadvantages which ivre keeping them from being what they ought to be, I huve a message from God. Yon uiich ot you labor under difficulties. Thoro is something in your icmperumonts in your worldly circumstances,; in your culling, that uuts powerfully against, y QU> -Admitting: all' this., 1 intVofluco to you Hadas- saH of the , ,text, u #oblo (.'hris- uotwitJj.sthH.dinK 1 , '^lio most !..

He who al 40 years loves a parent intist reel under the blow. JSven down to old age men are accustomed to rely upon thfc counsel, or be powerfully influenced by the advice of parents, if they are still alive. lJut how much greater the bereavement when it comes in early life, before the character is self-reliant, fend When naturally the heart la unsophisticated and easily tempted; And yet behold What a nobility of disposition Hadassah exhibited! 1'hough father and irother were gone, grace had triumphed over all disadvantages. Her willingness to self-sacrificej her control over the king; her humility; her faithful worship of Rod, shows her to have been one of the best of the world's Christians. There are those who did not enjoy remarkable early privileges. Perhaps, like the beautiful captive of the text, you were an orphan. You had huge sorrows in your little heart. You sometimes wept in the night When you knew not what was the matter. You felt sad sometimes even on the r playgroifiid. Your father or mother did not stand in the door to welcome you when you came home from a long journey. You still feel the effect of early disadvantages, and you have sometimes offered them as a reason for your not being as thoroughly religious as you would like to be. But these ixcuscs are not sufficient. God's grace will triumph if you seek it. He knows what obstacles you have fought against tnd the more trial the more help. After all, there arc uo orphans in the world, for the great God is the Father of us all. Again, our subject' is an illustration of what religion may be under the pressure of poverty. The captivity and crushed condition of this orphan girl, and of the kind man who adopted her, suggest a condition of poverty. Yet, . from the -very .first acquaintance we had with Hadassah we find her the same happy and contented Christian. It was only by - compulsion she was afterwards taken into a sphere of honor and affluence. In the humble !ioine of Mordecai. her adopted father,' she was a light that illumined every privation. In some period in almost every man's life there comes a season of straightened circumstances when the severest calculation and most scraping economy are necessary in order to subsistence and respectability. At the commencement of business,', at the entrance upon a profession, when friends are few and the world is afraid of you because there is a possibility of failure, many of the noblest hearts have struggled against poverty, and are now struggling. To such I bear a message of good cheer. You , say it is a hard thing for you to be a Christian. ' This' constant anxiety, this unresting calculation, wear out the buoyancy of your spirit, and although you have told perhaps no one about it, can not I tell that this is the very trouble which keeps you from being what you ought, to be? You have no time to think about laying up treasures in heaven when it is a matter of great doubt whether you will be enabled to pay your next quarter's rent. You can not think of striving after a robe of righteousness until you can get means enough to buy an overcoat to keep out the cold. You want the bread of life, but you. think you must gut along without that until you can buy another barrel of Hour for your wife and children. Sometimes you sit down discouraged and almost wish you were dead. Christians in satin slippers, with their feet on dainask ottoman, may scout at such a class of temptations, but those who themselves have been in the struggle and grip of hard misfortune, can appreciate the power of these evils to dissuade the soul away from religious duties. We admit the strength of the temptation, but then we point to. Hadassah, her poverty equaled by her piety. Courage down there in the battle! Hurl away your disappointment! Men of half your heart have, through Christ, been more than conquerors. In the name of God, come out of that! The religion of Christ is just what you want out there among the empty Hour - barrels and beside the cold hearths. You have never told any one of what a hard time you have had, but God knows it as well as you know it. Your easy times will come after awhile. Do not let your spirits break down mid life. What if your coat is thin? Run fast enough to keep warm. What if you have no luxuries on your table? High expectations will make • your blood tingle better than ' the best Maderia. If you can not afford to smoke, you can afford to whistle. But merely animal spirits are not siifflcient; the power of the gospel — that is what you want to wrench despair out of the soul and put you forward into the front of the hosts, encased in impenetrable arpior. It does not require extravagant wardrobe, and palatial residence, i\nd dashing equipage to make a m^n rich. The heart right tho estate is right A new heart is worth the world's wealth in one yailo of bank bills; worth all scep- tres of earthly power bound in one Bhuaf; worth all crhwns expressed in puo coronet. • Many a man without a, ifur-tHing in his pocket has beep rich to, ''buy the world , out, -}j,ayw'" stqwk left for, laygpr.. ' ' It is ...»otr*' often thjtt' of good habits come to ppsiti'y»bjigjfa,ry, but awojig those wM Jiye ip coinfortablo hqitoes all about &«««${ Mechanics, wclpJ'Q* a/, WQ*'4 ' uen . who, , ftprq aXfi$hibifym* y<w my assah with her nee'dld has dotio braver things-than Crosaf with a-SWord. Again oUf subject illustrates whiMf religion may be when in a strange land, or far from home. Hadassah Was a stranger hi Shushan. Perhaps brought up in the quiet of rural scenes, she was n<5w surrounded by the dazzle of a city. Heads as strong as hers had been turned by the transit from country to city. Nore than that, she was in a Strange land. Yet in that lonli- ness She kept the Christisin's integrity! and Was as consistent among the al* lurements of Shushan a3 among the kindred of her father's house. Perhaps, I address some who are now far away from the home of their fathers. ¥ou came across the seas. The sepulchres of your dead are far away. Whatever may be tho comfort and adornment of your present home, you can not forget the place of your birth, though it may have been lowly and unhonored. You often dream of your' youthful days, and in the silent twilight run off to the distant land and seem to see your forsaken home, just as it was when your people were all alive. Though you may ' h'avo hundreds of friends around you, you often feel that you are strangers in a strange laud. God saw tho bitter partings when your families were scattered. Ho watched you in tho ship's cabin floundering the stor'my seas. He knew the bewilderment of your disembarkation on a strange shore, and your wanderings up and down this land have been under an eye that never sleeps, and felt by a heart that always pities. Stranger, far from home, you have a companion in the beautiful Hadassah, as good in Sushan as in her native Jerusalem. Indeed, very many of you are distant from tho place of your nativity. Some o' you may be. pilgrims from the warm south, .or from harder climes than ours, from latitudes of deeper snows and sharper frosts. You have come down in these regions for purposes of thrift and gain. You have brought your tents and pitched them here, and you seldom now go back again except to visit the old village with wide streets and plenty of trees, on some holiday. This is not the climate in which many of you were born. These mothers aro not the neighbors who came to tho old homestead to greet you into life. These churches are not those under the shadow of which your grandfather was b'urried. These arc; not all ministers of Christ who out of the baptismal font sprinkled your baby brow. Far away tho kirk! Far away the homestead! Far away the town! Have you formed habits which would not have seemed right in the places and times of which wo speak? Have you built an altar in your present abode? Is the religion of olden time once planted in your heart come up in g-lorious harvest? Is your present home an eulogy upon that from which you were transplanted? Then are ye worthy companions of Hadassah, the stranger as holy in Shushan as in Jerusalem. EXCHANGED HATS. A. I.onlsvlllo Man \\ ho lUuiuleretl About His Headgear. "Well, sir," said a well-known Louisville man, "I had an embarrassing experience recently. 1 invariably sleep until the very last moment, and theirmake a rush for the breakfast table and the car. TJ?at morning I had bulrilVc minutes rj$3 ge.t,through'- eating 1 and catch the gar that passed my door. I fairly poked things .down my throat, and' hearing the .clang of the motorman's boll I in'udo a rush for the street. As I passed through the hall I snatched a hat that was hanging on the rack, and just reached tho corner in time. Then I dropped into a seat and took the morning paper from my pocket. It was not long until 1 heard a gentle tittering 1 from some dry goods clerks in the scats behind me. They kept it up and somehow I got an Idea into my head that they were laughing at me. "After a while I turned fiercely to one of them and asked what it was that seemed to amuse him so. He trembled ami managed to gasp out that I had on my wife's hat; It was even so, and there was' one of these long, gaudy, yellow pins that women use to keep their headgear iu posi* tion, sticking in it, I was so mad that I jerked it oft'and threw it into the.^street. Then everybody in the car roared, and I'felt truly furious. When I reached a hat store I stepped in and bought mo a hat of the masculine -variety.- yevei-al hours afterward my wife dropped in at the store, and she was wearing my hat. There was a pin in the back of it, and the littlo face veil swinging from the front, but it was my hat. I didn't say a word, ,and .that wom^n is wearing it yet, What bothers ino is that everybody found out the joke on me, and nobody has noticed it on her."
