"Johto Nicholson. whoTed tlie 'Bs- sault of Delhi, btit. fell in the houf of victory, JnOrtally wounded, atid died 23d September, iSfit, Aged 35 years." With what guns and men (Jen, Nicholson eould muster he had laid siege to this walled city filled with devils. What fearful odds! Twelve hundred British troops uncovered by any mtli- tary works, to take a city surrounded by firm and high masonry, on the top of which were 114 guns and defended by 40,000 foaming Sepoys. A larger percentage of troops fell here than in any great battle I happen to know of The Crimean percentage of the fallen was 17.48, but the percentage of Delhi was 37.9. Yet that city must be taken, and it can only be taken by such courage as had never been recorded in all the annals of bloodshed. Every charge of the British regiments agiiinst the Walls and gates had been beaten back. The hyenas of Hindoolsm and Mohammedanism howled over the walls, and the English army could do nothing but bury their own dead. But at this gate I stand and watch an exploit that makes the page of history tremble with ' agitation. This city has ten gates, but the most famous is the one before which we now stand, and it is called Cashmere gate. .Write the words in red ink, because of 'the carnage! Write them in letters of light, for the illustrious deeds! Write them in letters of black, for the bereft and the dead. Will the world ever forget thatCasbmcro gate? Lieutenants Salkeld and Home and Sergeants Burgess, Carroichacl >and Smith offered to take bags of powder to the foot of that gate and set, them on fire, blbwing open the gate, although they must die in doing 1 it. There they ;.'o, just after sunrise, each one carrying a sack containing twenty- four pounds of powder, and doing this under the fire of the enemy. Lieut. Home was the first to jump into the ditch, which still rcmain-i before the gate. As they go, one by one falls under the shot und shell. One of ihc mortally wounded, as he falls, hands his sack of powder with a box of luci: fer matches to another, telling him to fire the sack; when with an explosion that shook the earth for twenty miles around, part of the Cashmere gate was blown into fragments, and the bodies of some of these heroes -.were so scattered that they were never gathered for funeral, or grave, or monument. The British army rushed in through -the broken gate, and although six days of hard fighting were necessary before the city was in complete possession, the crisis was past, , The Cashmere gate open, the capture of; / Delhi and all it contained of palaces, and mosques, and .treasures was possible. Lord Napier,,of Magdala, of whom Mr. Gladstone spoke to mo so affectionately*'{when I was his guest at Hawarden, 'England, has lifted a monument uejir this Cashmere gate with the names of the men who there fell inscribed thereon. That English lord, who has seen courage on many a battlefield, visited the Cashmere gate, and felt that ''the men" who opened it with the los^''of their own lives ought to bo commemorated, and hence this cenotaph. But, aftey all, the best monument is the gate itself, with the deep gouge,s)in the briQk wall on the left side, made by two''bomb- shells, and the wal^-above, torii by ten bomb-shells, and the wall on the right side, defaced, and scraped, and plowed, and gullied by all styles of long reaching weaponry. Let th,e words ' 'Ca-hmere gate," as a synonym for patriotism, and fearlessness, and self sacrifice, go into all history, all art, all literature, all time, all otoi 1 - nity! My friends, that kind of courage sanctified will yet take the whole earth.for God, Indeed', the missionaries now at Deltyi, toiling amid heathenism, and fever, and cholera, and far ftway from home and comfort, and staying there until they drop into their graves, are just as brave in taking Delhi for Christ as 1 ' were Nicholson, and Home, and Carmiehuel in taking Delhi for Great Britain. Take this for the first sermonio lesson, As that night we. tpok the railroad train from the Delhi station and rolled out through the city now living, over the vaster cities, buried under this ancient capital, cities iinder cities, and pur traveling servant had unrpJled our bed, which consisted of a rug and two blankets and a pillow; apd as we were worn out with the sightseeing p< the and were roughly tpssed pn. tha$ uneven Indian railway, j spon fell'into § troubled fjleep, in which I saw »n4 jljeard. ip a PQnfused -way the scenes and spuds' pf the mutiny of 1657, whj<?}} a>Pjpllji we h$d teen. w?pu.n> rattle of the t?ain to tvu'flleto tjie WWJ§ 9f - tjie tpp pf. fftlllnf ttftflB *|Il*ih£ Ills iHHJSrtBf . 4i»e4 to wfoJt' the oaj f eflinSfitt ' &fi1* hesji the Fataplatt of thS hoofs 6f fi6Ki|sOfi'& h(3f%8, ftttd thfl d"aSh"t»f the Bengal af- tlllefy, fttfd the Stof itiiftg o! j the immortal frolirth coluton; andthlfriugher the Indian frallWaf became, ahd tho darker the flight giew, the iiiofe the sdehes that 1 had been studying at Delhi eatte on nie like an incubus. But the" morning begatt to look through the window of &ur jolting, caiv and the sunlight poured in on my pillow, and in toy dream I saw the bright colors of the Eiigllsli flag hoisted over Delhi, where the green, banner of ,the Moslem had waved, and tho voices of the wounded and dying seemed tio be exchanged for the voices that welcomed soldiers home ,again. 'And x as the morning light got brighter and brighter, ahd in myy;dream I j inistbok the bells 'at a station for a chufch bell hanging in a mjharet, where a Mohammedan priest had mumbled his call to praper, 1 seemed to hear a chant, Whether by human or angelic voices in iny dream I COuld not tell, but it was a chant about "i*eace and good will to men. " And ,as the speed of the rail- train slackened the motion of the car became so easy as we rolled along the track that it seemed to me that all the distress, and controversy,; and jolting, and wars of the world had ceased; and in my ^dream I thought we had come to the time whort "The raUsotbed of the Lord, shall- return and come to /ion with./songs and everlasting jov upon their, heads; anct sorrow and sighing shall flee away." ' Halt here at what you have never seen before, a depopulated city, the city 'of Amber, India. '< ', (f ' The strange fact' is that a ruler abandoned his palaces.atiAmber and moved to Jeyjiore, and all' the inhabitants of tho city followed...-' Except! hero and there ii* house in' Amber pccupicd by a hermit, the eity.is'as ; ,silen£ a population as Pompeii !

But what a solemn and stupendous thing is an abandoned city. While many of the peoples of the earth have no roof for their head, hero is a whole city of roofs rejected. The sand of the desert was sullicient excuse for the disarpearanco of Heliopolis, and tho waters of the Mediterranean sea for the engulfment of Tyro, and the lava. of Mount Vesuvius for tho obliteration of Herculaneum; but for the sake of npthing but a superstitious whim tho city of Amber is abandoned forever. O, wondrous India! The city of Amber is only one of the marvels which compel tho uplifted hand of surprise from the day you enter India until you leave it. Its flora is so flamboyant; its fauna so monstrous and savage; its ruins, so suggestive; its idolatry so horrible; its degradation so sickening; its mineralogy so brilliant; its splendors so uplifting; its architecture so old, so grand, so educa* tional, so multipotent, that India will not be fully comprehended until science has made its last experiment, and exploration has ended its last journey, and the library of the world's literature has closed its last door, and Christianity ,has ma.de its last achievement, and the clock pf time Iws struck its last hour, A «»!>>• prince's Elaborate Carriage.

In running into tho Mexican port of Mahzanillo last month the Pacific Mail steamer met with an accident which detained her there for several days. On lahd we sought the American consul, a mah well liked by both foreigners and Mexicans. Among the plans arranged wero a dinner and theater party that evening, and a hunting trip in the lagoon back of the toWh the next day. Early the following morning we awoke and drossed in knickerbockers with.leggins. I chose a brilliant ma- roOn jersey which had been too ' 'loud" NOrth, but, I felt safe here, as "colors were wqrn.'' We obtained ail early breakfast and started for town. Arriving at the consul's wo found .pur boys awaiting us. The lagoon was about thirty miles long, but only a little over a mile wide whore the railroad crossed. Most lagoons in Mexico are big sloughs, but very shallow and very .muddy. As it was quite a long walk over the trestle the consul kindly lent us the use of a hand car, propelled by the "boys." As wo crossed tho lagoon, bird's arose and flow by within easy shot) and now and then a crocodile could bo seen. Wo counted it almost it certainty we would have a groat day. Beaching the end of the trestle, which terminated near a little village, wo determined' to separate, my chum going up tho shore and I down. On rounding- a bond I saw a sight that cast everything in the shade. Only fifty feet away lay the ancestor of'all crocodiles. He was so large and covered with' mud I couldn't realize it all belonged to him. Every time I looked he seemed bigger. I turned to got my fiflo from ,the boy, but found both had retreated, and wero jabbering 1 in a scared, way. something 1 afterwards loarnod moaht "tho man- eater." They evidently knew the crocodile, '.raking- my rille I returned to a near view of the. reptile. Ho was still asleep, but lay in a bad position to shoot, us his forefoot was so fat and largo it covered the soft place we gen- erally.fire for, or olso ho was so old and toug-h ho didn't have any tender spot. Taking- a fino sig-ht I fired. Ho jumped ahead, turned and inado a rush for the smoko. I left in short order, as I had no further uso for him if that ballot was a failure. He stopped his rush to got new bearings, bellowing like a bull, thrashing his enormous tail so as to splash water and mud twenty foot away. I could now see my bullet had gono a trifle high, injuring his eyo and tearing up about four inches of his skull. Handicapped by this ho did not sec me, and as ho lay in better position I took a rest shot, back of the shoulder, which practically ended his usefulness, although I followed up with another for good measure. These sickened him, and ho made a vain atte'mpt to reach tho water, but was too weak, and, with a few convulsive thrashings, he rolled over stone dead. Returning to tho car we mot a number of people, who glanced at mo curiously but wont on by. As it was late, and I had heard nothing from my chum's party except distant shooting-, I thought I would go up and meet him. Leaving the muchachos to skin tho birds, I started alono up tho bank of the lag-oon. I had g-ono about a milo without finding any trace of thorn, when I noticed a splendid black bull feeding. The bull seemed to have g-ot a beo in his bonnet, and was plowing tho ground with his long, sharp .horns, pawino- the earth so as to throw it on his back and sometimes away ahead of him, curling- his tail in a big- C, and accompanying- those playful movements with a low moaning- and bollow ing and a lope in my direction. I know something about bulls, and tho first principles Wore "there's no time like the present," as they are very uncertain in their mental decisions. As I had tho choice of retreating to tho moccasin-infested lagoon or spoiling- the bull, I preferred tho latter. I plunked a ball between his eyes, which entirely relieved him of all anxiety on my account. On the main trail back to tho village I met a mounted Mexican, who asked me if I had shot the big crocodile. , I told him "yes," but of course said nothing about my more recent target practice. I thought he might be a possible owner, and preferred to havo tho cpnsul investigate the matter for me. Ho could speak better Spanish, Beaching- the haM-car, I noticed numbers of pooplo about going down to see tho big- reptilo. Looking up toward the village I saw my equestrian friend pointing toward me and shouting something, and then all the people hurrying- in my direction, I thought I could read that «'pan.to.mime. 1 ' H°. n » d found tho bull, a.n.4 they were coming foy mp.

All these and taahy other kindred thoughts nieandered through my brain, when 1 Was surprised to hear the consul roar with laughter, aftct a few loud exclamations from the other. Soon he caine up and began to laugh again. As soon as he could control himself he said: "You chump! They didn't know anything about the bull at all until 1 told them. That's All rightjthe mah says the bull was ugly, and he's glad you killed him. What the matter is, you killed a noted crocodile that has eaten their dogs and strayed pigs, ahd even suspected of enjoying a few missing children, and they think it is a big thing.

South America IK lUch With Lumber 1'ractlcally Unknown, Many of the finest woods in exist- once are yet unknown, or, only slightly known, to the manufacturers of wood in the civilized world. The woods of Central and South America are, perhaps, the most remarkable as well as tho least known. In the yet untouched forests of this continent are many woods far liner than any of those now in use. These woods range from pure white to jot black in color, and many of thorn are most beautiful^, ly marked and veined. Some of them ai'o so hard that they tui'n the edges of axes, chisels and other tools, while the band saw cuts thorn only slowly. In tho Columbian exposition there wero many displays of tho little-known wooda and tho finest of them were those from Argentine Republic, Brazil and other South American countries. Some of these Southern woods yielded to the tooth of tho 'band saw, not tho ordinary sawdust, but iiiiCj powder, fine as the iines^ Hour, so hard wero tho woods. Some of them burnt but slowly. Others possess qualities that keep them free from insects. Some of them seem to bo practically indestructible by air and water, according to tho Lumber World. All along the eastern slopes of tho Andes, up to tho enow line on those groat elevations,throughout all the great liver valleys, and in soino of tho wide areas of level country in South America, are groat forests of fino woods that are specially lit for tho finest cabinet and furniture works, and, also, for shipbuilding, carpentry and other industrial arts in which wood is the "raw material." These great forests are now an unknown quantity in tho commercial world, but they will corno rapidly into the knowledge of men and into industrial use when onoe the railroad has reached thorn. Before many years, it is safe to predict, the South American and Central American republics will bo threaded by railroads, and then those wonderful woods will be drawn upon to supply the demand for new and line woods in all tho civilized countries.
