In all ng-cs of the world it has boon • customary to celebrate joyful events ' t>y festivity— the signing 1 of treaties, •• the proclamation of pen 004 tl it! Christ:„, mas, the iriarriiijjc. Howt-T.r/ much "*'/' oil other days of the year our table v way have stinted supply, oa Thanks: . giving- day there mitst be something- bounteous. And all the comfortable » tomes of Christendom have at .some time celebrated joyful events by ban, tjtiet and festivity. .Something- has happened in the old • x homestead greater than anything- that lias ever happened before. A favorite ' Ison. whom the world supposed would become a vagabond and outlaw forever. has got tired of sightseeing and lias returned to his father's house. Tho world said he never would come ,' back. The old man always said his son would come. He had been looking for him day after day and year after 4 Veai\ He knew he would come back. Now, having returned to his father's liotipe, the father proclaims celebration. There is a calf in the pad dock that has been kept up and fed to utmost capacity, so as to be ready fur some occasion of joy that mig-ht come along. Ah! there never will be a grander day on the old homestead than this day. l^et the butchers do their work, and let the housekeepers "bring into the table the smoking meat. The. musicians will take their places. .and the gay groups will move, up and xlown the lloor. All the friends and neighbors arc gathered in, and extra .supply is sent out to the table of the servants. The father presides at the table and says grace, and thanks liod 'that his long absent boy is home ag-ain. • -Oh! how they missed him: how glad they are to have him back. One brother indeed stands pouting at the back •iloor. and says: "This is a great ado nbout nothing; this bad boy should have been chastened instead of greeted: veal is too good for him!" But the lather says, "Nothing 1 is too good: aioihing is. good enough.-' There sits •the young man, glad at the hearty re- tccption, but a shadow of sorrow fli't- 'iting across his brow at the remembrance of the trouble he had seen. All .ready now. Let the covers lift. Music. lie was dead and he is alive again! lie 'was lost and he is found! By such ,"bold imagery does the Ifible set forth the merrymaking- when a soiil comes -home to God. First of all, there is the new convert's joy. It is no tame tiling- to become a Christian. The most tremen- dotis moment in a man's life is when lie surrenders himself to God. The grandest time on the father's home. stead is when the boy comes back. Among the great throng who. in tho parlors of my church, professed Christ one night was a young man, who next morning rang- my doorbell and said: "Sir, lean not contain myself with the ;joy 1 1'cel; I came here this morning ' to express it. I have found more joy in five minutes in serving God than in :all the years of my prodigality, and I 'kcaiQc to say so." . You have seen, perhaps, a man running for his physical liberty, and the officers of the law after him; and yon saw him escape or afterward you iheard the judge had pardoned him, ;and how great was the glee of that rescued man; but it is , a very tame thing that compared with the running for one's everlasting life — the terrors '-of the law after him, and Christ com' ing in to pardon and bless and rescue ,and save. You remember John Uun- .yan, in his great story, tells how the I'ilgrim put his fingers to his ears and "i-an, crying-, "Ijife, life, eternal, life!" , «A. poor car driver, after having had tb Struggle to support his family fen- years, suddenly was informed that a ~ large inheritance was his, and there 'was joy amounting to bewilderment; ljut that is a small thing compared -with the experience of one when lie lias put in his hands the title deed to ' 'the joys, tire raptures, the splendors of Jieaven, and he can truly say, "Its * mansions are mine, its temples are („ wine, its songs are mine, its God is jnine!" Oil, Jfc is po tame thing to become a Christian. It .}s a merrymaking. It is tlio killing of the fatted calf. It is jubilee. You know the Bible never -compares it to a funeral, but always ' icompares it to something bright. : It is axiore apt to be compared to $ banquet ' *han anything el&e. It is compared in 'tlje Bible to the water— bright, flash- "ing- water! to the morning— roseate, ' fireworked,, mountain transfigured t jiiQ.rning, I wish i could to-day take 'JaU $ie Bible expressions about pardon 'a,ce, and life and comfort, an,d and Jieaven, and twist them into -pne garland, and put it on tho brow of iia of God in t nil this l> Wear it, wear it now, toreyer, son of God, daughter Jjord Ood Almighty, Oh, the the new convert! Oh, tins ghijl- of Gbd thefaexl moment. When Daniel Sandetf fth was tiding of cholera, his t |»ave a man in a. up.fl.pd give tijs uj ga>e h,is ox* ]t|sB« pve&W?» Of 5i.-"j.' r HP atlendfcht saitt: "Hfevc yon much path? 1 ' "Oh/' he fefrlictl, "since 1 found the fAird I have tfevcr hart ' any pain exce'pt, sin," Then 'they said to him: "\Vonld yotl like to* send a mea- sag-e.to your friends? 1 ' "Yes, I would; tell them that only last night the love of .Tqsus came rushing- into my Soul like the storgcs of the sea. and 1 had to cry out, 'Stop, Lord; it _ is ciiotl'gM Stop, Lord — enough!' !i Oh, the joys of this Christian ^cliffion! just pass over from those turtle joys in Which you are indulging — -joys of this AVorld— into the raptures of the gospel. The world can not satisfy you: yrm have found out— Alexander* loiig- ilig for other worlds to cf)iiqnt'i% and yet droH-ned in his own botttc.; liyrohj whipped by disquietudes around the world; Voltaire, cursing his own soul while nil the streets of 1'aris were applauding him; Henry II., consuming with hatred against poor Thomas a-Ucckot^— nil illustrations of the fact that this world can not make a man happy. The very man who poisoned the pommel of , the saddle on which Queen Elizabeth rode, shouted in the street, "Odd save the queen!" Onc moment the world applauds, and the next moment the world anathematizes. Oh. come over into this greater .-joy, this sublime solace, this magnificent beatitude. The night after the battle of Khiloh, there were thousnnds of wounded on .the field, and the ambulances had not come, one Christian soldier, lying there a dying under the starlight, began to sing: There is a land of puro delight, And when he came to the next line there were scores of voices uniting: AVhcro saints immdrtal reigu. The song was caught tip all over the field among- the wounded, until it was said there were at least ten thousand wounded men uniting their voices as they came to the verse: There everlasting spr.'. g bidos, And never withering 11 j\vors; Death like a narrow Rtieam divides, That heavenly laud'lrom 0111-3;' Oh, it is a great religion to live ,by. and it is a 'great religion to die by. There is only one heart throb between you and that religion this moment. .lust look into the face of yonrpardoii- ing (Joil. and surrender yourself for time and for eternity., and he is yours, and heaven is yours, and all is yours;. ISome of you, like the young man of the text, have gone far astray. I know not the history, but you know it — you know it, .... ; ' When a young man went forth into life, the legend says, his guardian angel went forth; with him,; and. getting him into a, field, the guardian angel- 1 swept a circle clear around where the young man stood. It was a circle of virtue and honor, and he must step beyond that circle. Armed foes came down, but were obliged to halt at the circle— they could not pass. 15ut one day a temptress, } with". • dia-mond.ed . .- hand, stretched forth and crossed that circle with the h arid, aiid the tempted soul took it, and by that one fell grip was brought beyond the circle, and died. .Some of you have' stepped beyond, that circle. Would .yon not like this day, by the grace of (tod, to step 'back? This, 1 say to yon, is your hour di'salvation; There; was in the closing hours of Queen Anne what is called the clock .scene. L'lat down on the pillow in helpless sickness, 'she could not move her head or ."move her blind. Shu was waiting for the hour when the ministers of state should gather in 'angry contest; and worried and worn out by the coming hour, and. in momentary abscnce.of the nurse, in the power — the strange pqwcr which delirium sometimes gives •' one — she arose and stood in front of the clock, and stood .'there watching,, the clock when the nurse returned. The nurse said, "Do -you see anything peculiar about that ' clock'."' 'She made no answer, but soon died. There is it clock scene in every history. If somes of you would riso from , the bed of lethargy andeome out of your delirium of sin, and look on the -clock- of your destiny' this- moment, you- would sec and hear Something yon have not seen or heard before, and every tick of the minute, and every stroke of the hour, and every swing ,pf the pendulum would say: '-Now, now, now, now!" Oh, come, home to your lather's house. Come home, ' oh, -"prodigal; from the wilderness. Come home, como home! You remember reading tho story of a king, who on some great day of festivity scattered silver and gold among the people, who sent valuable presents to his courtiers; but metliinks when a soul comes back, Ood is so glad that to express his joy he flings out now worlds into tspace, kindles up new suns, and rolls among the white robed anthems of the redeemed a greater hallelujah, while with a voice that reverberates . among the mountains of frankincense and. is echoed back from the everlasting gates, ho cries: '-This, "my son, was dead and is alive again!" At tho opening of the exposition in New Orleans, I saw a Mexican flutist, and he played the solo, and then af ter- Wttvd the eight or ten bands of music, accompanied by the great organ, cumo in; but the sound of that one flute as compared with all the orchestra, was greater than all the combined joy of the universe, when compared with the rt5S.ouu.4ing heart af Almighty Uocl. Jfor ten yea-rs, a father- went three times & day tothftdepot- Jlisson wont off jn Aggravating clrcums>tancc.<.; but the father jsaifl, "lie will come back." Tho strain was too much, and his mind p^rlefy and three times a day the i'uthpn'wpjiit. Jn tho early morning, ho ivatfiheA the ti'fiiw— its arrival, tho stepping out- of t/lio passengers, and then th,6 departure O f tho train, -At neon fro was. tbore *tgfW, watching the o4y,ajuJo J"l iUe train, watching the do' there agaiy, thirty years, forty years, perhaps fifty years—waiting, xfr&iting, watching* watch'ing; and if this morning the prodigal should como home, what a scene of gladness ahd festivity, and how tho great Father's heart would rejoice at your coming home.. You will come, some of 3-011, will you not? You will! you will! Vi'c are in sympathy with all innocent hilarities. Wo can enjoy a hearty song ahd we cntt be merry with the merriest; but those of us who hare toiled in the service arc ready to testify that all these joys are tauip in comparison with tlie,satisfaction of seeing men enter lite kingdom of God. The great eras of every minister ai'e the outpourings of the Itoly Ghost, and I thank God 1 have seen twenty of them. Thank God, thank God! ! I notice also when the prodigal comes buck nit Christians rejoice, If you stoo'd on a p'romontory and tiler* wns a hurricane at sea, and it was blowing toward the shore, and a vessel crashed into the rocks and you saw people get ashore in the life boats and the very last man got on the rocks in safety, you could not control your joy. And it is a glad time when the church of God sees men who are tossed on the ocean of their sins plant their feet oil the rock of Christ .Jesus. When prodigals come home just hear those Christians sing. It is not a dull tune you hear at such times, »lusfc hear those Christians pray. It is not a stereotyped supplication we have heard over and over again for twenty years, but a putting of the case in the hands of God with an importunate pleading. Men never pray at great length unless they have nothing to say and their hearts aro hard and cold. All the prayers in the Bible that were answered were short prayers: "God be merciful to me a sinner/' "Lord, that 1 may receive my sig-ht." "Lord, save me or I perish." The longest prayer, Solomon's prayer at the dedication of tho temple, less than eight minutes in length, according to the ordinary rats of enunciation. And just hear them pray now that the prodigals arc coming home. Just sec them shako hands. No putting forth of the four tips of the fingers in a formal way, but 'a hearty grasp, where the muscles of the heart seem to clinch the fingers of OIK; hand around the other hand. And then see those Christian faces, how illumined they are. And see that old man get up and with the same voice that he sang fifty years ago in the old country meeting house, say, "Now.Lord, lettcst thoti thy servant depart in peace, for mine eyes have seen thy salvation." There was a man of Keith who was hurled into prison in time of persecution, and one day he got oft' his shackles and he. came and stood by the prison door, and when the jailer was opening tho door, with one stroke he struck down the man who incarcerated him. 1'assing along- the streets of London lie wondered where his family was. lie did not dare to ask lest he excite suspicion, but, passing along- a- little way from the prison, lie saw a Keith tankard, a cup that belonged to the family from generation to generation—he saw it in a windo\y. His 'family, hoping that somo day lie would get clear, came aud lived as near as they could to tho prison and they set that Keith tankard in tho window, hoping- he would see it; and lie came along- and saw it, and knocked at the door, and went in, and tho long absent family were all together again. Oh, if yon would start for the kingdom of God to-day, I think some of you would find nearly all your friends and nearly all your family around the holy tankard of the holy coinmiinion~futhoi-s,mothers, brothers, .sisters around that sacred timkard which commemorates tho love of Jesus Christ our Lord. Oh, it will bo a great communion day when your whole family sits around the sacred tankard. One on earth, ono in heaven. Once more I remark, that when the prodigal gets back the inhabitants of heaven keep festival. 1 am very certain of it. If yon have- never seen a telegraphic chart, yon have, no idea how many cities arc connected together and how many lands. Nearly all tho neighborhoods of tho earth seem reticulated, and news Hies from city to city, and from continent to continent. Hut more rapidly go tho tidings from earth to heaven, and when a, prodigal returns it is announced before the throne of God. And if those souls to-day should enter tho kingdom there would be somo ono in tho heavenly kingdom to say: "That's my father," "That's my mother," "That's my son," "That's my datighter," "That's my friend," "That's the one I used to pray for," "That's the one for whom 1 wept so inuny tears," and ono soul would say, "Jlosanna!" and another would say, "Hallelujah!" Pleased with the news the saints bel\V In songs their tongues employ; Ueyond the skies tUe tidings go, And heaven is filled with joy. Nor angels can their joy contain, But kindle with new Hre; The sinner lost js fouud, siug And strike the sounding lyve. At tho banquet of Lucullus sat Cicero tho orator. At the Macedonian festival sat J'hilip the conqueror. At tho Grecian banquet sat Bocruto.s tho philosopher; bnt ut our father's tablo bit all the ruttirned prodigals, more than conqucrorh.

"All this talk about tho viciousness of the Gila monster and the alleged mortality of its bito is nothing more than tho veriest dry rot,'' said Major B. It. Lawrence, one of Arizona's representative pioneers, to a St. Louis Globo-Domocrat man. "Of course," quickly added tho major, with one of his confidence restoring smiles, "it is not to be denied that the venom of this horrible Creature's breath is alone sufficient to inflict instant death upon its unfortunate victim, but I stand to prove by unimpeachable documentary evidence, secured by my own personal efforts, that this horrible representative of the lizard species is not necessarily ferocious and untamable. "While I was prospecting in th6 Gila river country during tho early eighties I had abundant opportunity to observe and study'into the so-called monster very closely, and I found him to bo not only harmless when undisturbed, but when captured and treated with kindness ho becomes tame and affectionate as a pot dog. I captured two, u male and u female, which were of medium siae, say three and a half feet in length and weighing about thirteen pounds. I named them Joe and Jessie, and they would answer with alacrity to my call, and were pleased immensely when rewarded with a bit of jelly cake, of which pastry they seemed exceedingly fond. They went about with mo everywhere, and slept in my tent sometimes, causing- visitors to exclaim in horror when their goggle eyes and stubby body suddenly appeared from underneath my camp bedstead. Tho fame of my pets spread rapidly, and I waa several times offered, largo amounts to part with them, and J had reason afterward to rejoice that I did not. One morning I reg-nincd my tent about 4 a, in., and was welcomed by my pets. I played with them as usual, caressed and tossed them about, and finished by feeding- them some crumbs from tho remains of my supper, and throw myself on my blanket to snatch u modicum of the necessary. Presently I was awakened by a hair-raising yell of terror and despair. I leaped to my feet and behold, writhing- in the convulsions of tho death agony, my foe and rival, Jean Stiletto. Fastened to his neck with a vise-like grip was my trusty Joe, while Jessie was curled up in a ball around Ms right arm, in the hand of which was grasped a long- bladed, vicious-looking- knife, meant undoubtedly for my heart. "Tho official report of the coroner's inquest acquitting- my brave defenders of homicidal intent was soon after published in the Tombstone 'Epitaph,' which, being- reprinted in tho territorial press, thrust much unpleasant notoriety upon myself and my heroic pets; in,fact,I have never fully succeeded in living down tho story. I 'struck it rich' tho following spring-and removed to Tucson, whore I prepared to settle down to a quiet life amid more civilized surrounding's. But unwilling- to part with my faithful little friends, I had them securely muzzled and applied to the municipal authorities for a brace of dog- licenses, which I proposed to fasten to their silver-plated steel chain collars. To my astonishment and intense grief the licenses wore refused and the dear little beusts confiscated and destroyed. I claimed their bodies, however, and after having- them nicely stuffed and mounted, accorded them the place of honor on my parlor mantel." Opals. Most of tho finest opals come from Hungary, but the principal vein lias been exhausted lately, so that tho g-em in its finest variety is exceedingly rare. The clear bright opals with tho luminous fire come from Mexico. Any opal, and particularly tho Mexican stone, becomes dull by washing- the hands with tlio ring- on, and all lose their brilliant play of color. The stones aro not durable like diamonds, nor will they stand the same wear. you sayi Life's 1'robloms Solved. Tired Tim—Wot's that Lookin' for work?" Wayfaring William,—Yop. I ain't no tramp.

I brought you somo more news," and he handed in an item about a cat as follows: "A rouiurkablo animal.—The family cat of our worthy and distinguished follow townsman Smith, who keeps the boss grocery store of Ward No 13 (beer always on tap), yesterday became t;he mother of live singularly-marked kittens. This is not the first time this unheard-of event lias taken place. Wo understand Mr. Smith is being, favorably spoken of as a candidate for alderman." The editor groans in his spirit as he lights a cigiir with the ctt'ort. It is not; long before ho hears that Smith is going around saying that he. lias made the paper what it is, but it is not independent enough to suit tho public. Many renders will say that this sketch is overdrawn, but thousands of editors all over the country will lift up their right hands to testify that they -.ire personally acquainted with the gnjUy party. — Texas SifUnas. First Discovery ot Coal In America. There are strong reasons for believing that wo are. indebted to the early French missionaries for the first discovery of coal on this continent. In McFarland's "Coal Regions of America" I find the following: "It is a remarkable fact that the iirst discovery of coal in America, of which an account has been preserved in a printed book, was made so far in tho interior as Illinois, by Father Hennepin, mow: than 200 years ago."—St. Louis Ko- ; oublie.
