V., l)ee. iG.--Ilev. ftr Talmage to-day delivered the third of his series of 'round the world sermons through the press, the subject being the "Burning of the Dead," and the te*t! "They have hands but they handle not, feet have they but they walk not, neither speak they through their throat. TheV that make them are like unto them." Psalm il6:vii*yiil. The life of the missionary is a luxurious and indolent life', Hindooism is a life that ought not to be interfered with; Christianity Js guilty of an impertinence when it invades heathendom; you must put in'the'same'line of 'reverence Brahma, Buddha, Mohammed and Christ. To refute these slanders and blasphemies now so prevalent, and to spread out before the Christian world the contrast between idolatrous and Christian countries, preach this third sermon in my '"round the world" series. In this discourse I take you to the very headquarters of heathendom, to the very capital of Hindooism: for what Mecca is to .the Mohammedan and what Jerusalem is to the Chris tian, Benares, India, is to the ^Hindoo We arrived there in the evening, and the next morning we started out early among other things to see the burning . ol the dead. We saw it, cremation not as many good people in America and England are now advocating it, namely, the burning of the dead in clean, and orderly, and refined crematory, the hot furnace soon reducing the human form to a powder to be carefully preserved in an urn; but cremation as the Hindoos practice it We got into a boat and were rowed down In His Line.

Two fenglishhieil ftfo lost thelf lives by the mal- ^nt of a monkey, t»af sitig albng o< these indiatt streets, a monkey did not soott enough get out of the way and one of these Englishmen struck it with his cane. Immediately the people and thd priests gathered around these strangers, ajnd the public wrath increased until the two English* were pouhded to death for having struck a thonkey, No land in fcii the world so reveres the monkey as India, as no other land has a temple called after it, OflS of the rajahfe oMn'dta spent 100,000 rupees in the marriage of two monkeys. A nuptial procession was formed in which moved camels, elephants, tigers, cattle and palanquins of richly dressed people. Bands of music sounded the wedding march. Dancing parties kept the night sleepless. It was twelve days before the mottkey and monkeyess were free from their round of gay attentions. In no place but India could such a carnival have occurred. But, after all, while we can not approve of the monkey temple, the monkey is sacred to hilarity. I defy any one to watch a Monkey one minute without laughter. Why was this creature made? For the world's amusement. The mission of some animals is left doubtful and we cannot see the use of this or that quadruped, or this or that insect, but the r-isslon of the ape is certain; all around the world it entertains. Vliether seated at the top of this temple in India, or cutting up its antics on the top of a hand organ, it stirs the sense of the ludicrous; tickles the diaphragm into cachinnation; topples gravity into play, and accomplishes that for which it was created. The eagle, and the lion, and the gazelle, and the robin no more certainly have their mission than has the monkey. But it implies a low form of Hindooism when this embodied mim- -T the river Ganges until we came op-1 icry of the human race is lifted into posite to where .five dead bodies lay, lour ol them women wrapped in red garments, and a map! wrapped iu white. Our boat fastened, we waited and watched. High piles of wood were on the bank, and this wood is carefully weighed on large scales, ac cording as the friends of the deceased can afford to pay for it. In many cases only a few sticks can be afforded- and the dead body is burned only a little,and then thrown into tho Ganges. But where the relatives of the deceased are well to do, an abundance of wood in pieces four or five feet long is purchased. Two or three layers of sticks are then put on the gronnd .to | receive the dead form.. Small pieces of sandalwood are inserted to produce j fragrance. The deceased is lifted from the resting place and put upon this wood. Then, thg cover is removed from the face of the corpse and it is bathed with water of the Gauges. Then several more layers of wood are put upon the body, and other sticks are placed on both sides of it, bat the head and feet are left exposed. Then a quantity of grease sufficient to make everything inflammable is put on the wood, and into the month of ithc«iead. Then one of the rich men in Benares, his fortune made hi this way,furnishes the fire, and, after the priest ibas mumbled a few words, the eldest :son walks three times around the -saiened pile, and then applies the torch, .and the fire blazes up, and in a short itime •the body has become the ashes which relatives throw into the Gaaiges. Benares is imposing 3,n the distance as you look at it from/tfce <otlier side iof the Ganges. The forty-seven 'ghats,*.or flights of stone steps,reacTatog! from t!he water's edge to the buildings high-up on the banks, mark a ptoee for the ns- cent and descent of the suiblimities. The lost ia the bewilderment <o;f tombs, shrines, minarets, palaces and temples,.It is the glorifieaitaam -of steps, the triumph of stairways, • But'looked at close by, the temples, though large and expensive, are ' apyilbto(£r tout attractive. The seeming gold in many cases turns out to be brass. 'The precious stones in the wall tarn .out to be paint. The marble is sttfeco. The worship. In one of the cities for the first time in my life'I had an opportunity of talking with a Fakir, or a Hindoo who has renounced the world and lives on alms. Ho sat under a rough covering on a platform of brick. He was covered with the ashes of the dead, and was at the time rubbing more of those ashes upon his arms and legs. He understood and spoke English. I said to him, "How long have you been seated here?" He replied, "Fifteen years." "Have those idols which I see power to help or destroy?" He said, '-No: they only represent God. There is but one God." • Question—When people "die where do they gio to? Answer—That depends upon what theylMwe been doing. If they have been doing good, to heaven; if they •have ibeen doing evil, to hell. 'Question—But do you not believe in the transmigration of souls, and that after death wo go into birds or animals of some sort. Answer—Yes; the last creature a man is thinking of while dying is the ione into which he will go. If he is .thinking of a bird'he will go into a bird; and if he is thinking of a cow he will go into a cow. 'Question—I thought you said that at tdeath the soul goes to heaven or hell? Answer—He goes there by a gradual process. It may take him years and .years. Question—Can any one become a Hin- cdoo? Could I become a Hindoo? Answer—Yes, you could. Question—How could I become a Hindoo'? I Answer—By doing as the Hindoos (do. ' ' JBut as I looked upon the poor, filthy •wretch, bedaubing himself' with -the :ashes of the dead, I thought the last thing on earth I would want to be<come would be a Hindoo, I expressed ;to a missionary who overheard the .conversation between the Fakir and anyself my amazement at some of the (floctriries the Fakir announced, The missionary said: "The Fakirs are very accommodating,' and supposing you to be :a friend of Christianity, he announced the theory of one God, and tti idleness, stt tte*i ott earth wbffc is hafd as the missionaries how in the foreign field. Against fearful odds, and with three inilliofls wl Christians epposed to two hundred and fifty millioes of Hindoos, Moh^tiS* medans attd other false feUgiofts, these missionaries are trying to take India for God Let the food pie of America, and England, Scotland, and of all Christendom add fiBjf per cent to theif appreciation of the fidelity ahd eoftsceratiott of fofcigfl missionaries. Far away from hoffie,' in an exhausting climate, and com'. pelled to Betid their children to England, Scotland of America so as td es*. cape the corrupt conversation ahd be* havlor of the natives, these men and Women of God toil on until they drop into their graves. But they will get their chief appreciation when their work is over and the day is'"W0n» a& it will be won. No place in heaven will be tod good for them. Some of the minister^ at home who live on salaries of 847ob6' or $6,000 a year, preaching the gispelof him who had not where to lay his head, will enter heaven and be welcomed, and while looking for a place to sit down, they will be tttlds "Yonder in that lower line of thrones you will take your places. Not on tho thrones nearest the king; they are reserved for tho missionaries.!" Meanwhile let all Christendom be thrilled with gladness. About 25,000 converts in Inr'ia every year under the Methodist missions, and about 25,000 converts under the Baptist missions, and about 78,000 converts under all missions every year. But more than that.Chrlstianity is undermining heathenism, and. not a city, 'or town, or neighborhood of India, but directly, or indirectly, feels tho influence; and tho day speeds on when Hindooism will go down with a crash. There are whole villages which have given up their gods, and where not an idol is loft The serfdom of womanhood in many places is being unloosened, and the iron grip of caste is being relaxed. Human sacrifices have ceased, and tho last spark of the funeral pyre on which the widow • must leap has been extinguished, and the juggernaut, stopped, now stands as a curiosity for travelers to look at. All India will be taken for Christ. If any one has any disheartenments let him keep them as his own private property; he is welcome to all of them. But if any man has any encouragement to utter, let him utter them. What we want in tho church and tho world is less croaking owls of the night and more morning larks with spread wing ready to meet the advancing day. Fold up Naomi and Windham, and give us Ariel or Mount Piogah, or Coronation. I had the joy of preaching in many of the cities of India, and seeing the dusky faces of the natives illuminated with heavenly e.nticipa- .,tions. In Calcutta while the congregation were yet seated I took my departure for a railroad train. Tpreached by the watch up to the last minute. A swift carriage brought me to the station not more than half a minute before starting. I camo nearer to missing the train than I hope any one of us will come to missing heaven. slippery and disgusting steps lead you 'that of rewards and punishments," to images of horrible visagie, and the ' " , flowers put upon'the altar hava their frapranco submerged by that which is the opposite to aromatics. After you haye seen the gfcats, the two great things in Benares that you must see are the Golden and Monkey temples, About the vast Golden .temple there is not as much gold' as would make un English sovereign. The air 'itself is asphyxiated, Here we see men making gods out of mud and then putting theii- hands together in worship of that which themselves have made. Sacred cows walk up an<} down the temple. Here stood a Fakir with a right arm uplifted, and for so long a time that he covjld pot take it down, and the nails of "the" hand had grown until they looked like serpents winding in and arwnd the palm, We took a carriage and went still further pn to see the Monkey temple, so called because Jn and aro\md the building monkeys abound and are kept as sacred, All evolution.tets should visit this temple devoted- to the femiiy from which their anpfetorg came, .These monkeys chatter and wink, and climb, and, }opH wis,e, and look silly, and, have full possession of the place, We were asi^d at the eptranc§ of the temple to, t»t,e 0 $ pup of th e eaorednesg of the but a. A§ Siva, an attendant wetted to « wter with ,QBP ehQ.e§ PJJ> tejnple is 4@di@9tfd' to And now as to the industrious maiignment of missionaries; It ' has been said by some travelers after their retmm to America or England .that the missionaries are livings life full of in- doleaoe and luxury, That is » falsehood that I would say is as high as heaven if it did not go down in the opposite .direction. When strangers come into these tropical climates, the missionaries do their best to entersain them, malting sacrifices for that purpose, la the city of Benares a missionary told me that a gentleman coming from England into one of the mission stations of India, the missionaries banded together to entertain him. Among other things, they had a.ham^ boiled, prepared and beautifully decorated, and tlie same ham was passed around from house to house as this stranger appeared, and in other respects a conspiracy of kindness was effected, The visitor went back to England and. wrote and spoke of the luxury $n which the missionaries of India, were living. Americans a«d English w«n pome tp these tropical regipes and find a missionary living under palms and with different styles pf fruifs pn his table, and forget that palms are here ft9 cheap as ' hickory pr pipe jn America,, ^nd rich as. pheptp m plain ftpples- They here missionaries el§epu?g »gder these fa.n.g 6WW 4ay »pd eo.pUe,§ , sad. fprpf that tmv cejjtlftdjjyig'gaPd 'wages, fee?e, anj Gold iu Alaska. Four miners arrived in Tacoma from Alaska recently, bringing each $100,000 in. gold dust, which they said was the result of two •seasons' work in th'e Yukon country. They said that all the old timers who have been long on the ground and have mastered its peculiarities Ihave struck it rich during the last season. There is good evidence of this in the fact that a steamer called at Taeoroa not long ago en route to San Francisco from Alaska, having aboard about $200,000 in gold dust, which her officers said was a usual thing this season. Soune big nuggets, averaging twenty to thirty ounces, have been found. But the mining is exceedingly difficult, About :800 miners will winter in the Yukon district this year. The influx of miners has been so great that there is likely to be a great scarcity .of provisions before spring, A big rush to the region is looked for next year because the placers have panned out so well. Milking; the World Homelike. In her address before the Woman's Christian Temperance union convention at Cleveland Miss Frances ,E. Willard said: "I remember that no one subject puzxled or vexed me more in my youthful days than why it was that men could'.arrange tho whole world at their will and then have the home besides, while women did not have the world but the home only. I did not think this fair, and I resolved to build in my life to help to make the world so homelike that women could freely go out.Jnto it everywhere, side by side with men, and also to help bring it about that men should share jn larger measures than they have ever yet clone in the hallowed ministrations, of the fireside and the cradleside, through which, as I believe, they are to reach their highest a«a holiest develop* the I N all receipts' for requiring a leavening the ROYAL BAKING: POWDER, because it is an; absolutely pure cream of tartar; powder and of 33 per eerit, greater leavening strength than;; other powders, will give the^ best results.

A little Italian who came to Roclcland lost summer had never seen snow, and a recent storm was a great surprise.
