Ah! you will haVe td watt td all eternity for the repdrt of that measurement. It canndt be-iaeaaured... ^Paut tried to Jacob looks down through the corridors of the centuries until he sees Christ the center of all popular attraction and the, greatest being 16 the world, BO everywhere acknow'i'" edged. It was not always so. world tried hard to put him down and to pitt him out. In the year 1200, while excavating for antiquities fifty-three miles northeast of Rome, a copperplate tablet was found containing the death»warrant of the Lord Jesus Christ, reading in this wise: "In the year 17 of the empire of Tiberius Caesar.and on the 25th of Maretij I, Pontius Pilate, governor of the Prae- tore, condemn Jesus o£ Nazareth to die, between two thieves, Qulntlus Cornelius to lead him forth to the pi ice of execution." The death-warrant was slgtad by several names. .First, by Daniel, rabbi Pharisee; secondly, by Johannes, rabbi; thirdly, by Raphael; fourthly, by Capet, a private citizen. This capital punishment was executed according to law. The name of the thief crucified on the right-hand side of Christ was Dismas; tho name of the thief crucified on the left hand side.of Christ was Gestus. Pontius Pilate describing the tragedy says the whole world lighted candles from noon until night. Thirty-three years of maltreatment. They ascribe' his birth to bastardy and his death to excruciation. A wall of the city, built about those times and recently exposed by archaeologists, shows a caricature of Jesus Christ, evidencing the contempt In which he was held by many in his day—that caricature on the wall representing a cross and a donkey nailed to It, and under it the Inscription: "This Is the Christ whom the people worship." But I rejoice that that day Is gone by. Our Christ is coming out from under the -world's abuse. The most popular name on earth today is the name of Christ. Where he had one friend Christ has a thousand friends. The scoffers have become worshipers. Of the twenty most celebrated infidels Is Great Britain in our day, 'sixteen have come back to Christ, try- Ing to undo the blatant mischief of their lives—sixteen out of the twenty. Every man who writes a letter or signs a document, wittingly or unwittingly, honors Jesus Christ. We date everything as B. C., or A. D.—B. C,, before Christ: A. D., Anno Domini, In the year of our Lord. All the ages of history on the pivot of the upright beam of the Cross of the Son of God, B. C., A. D. I do not care what you call him—whether Conqueror, or King, or Morning Star, or Sun of Righteousness, or Balm of Gilead, or Lebanon Cedar, or Brother, or Friend, or take/the name used in the verse from which I take my text, and call him Shiloh, which means his Son, or the Tranquilator, or the Peacemaker, Shiloh. I only want to tell you that "unto him shall the gathering of the people be." ' In the first place, the people are gathering around Christ for pardon. No sensible man or healthfully ambitious: man Is satisfied with his past lift. A fool may think he is all right. A sensible man knows he is not; I do not care who the thoughtful man is, the. review of his lifetime behavior before God and man gives to him no especial satisfaction, "Oh," he says, "there have been so many things I have done I ought not to have done, there have been so many things I have said I ought never to have said; there have been so many things, I have written I ought never to have written, there have been t pp many ,thjngs I have thought I ought, 'never to have thought, I must somehow get things readjusted, I must somehow have the past reconstructed; there are days and months and years which cry out against me in horrible vociferation," Ah, my brother, Christ adjusts the past by .obliterating It. He .does not erase the recor4 of our misdoing, with a dash of ink from a register's' »pen, but lifting his right hand, crushed, red at the palm, he puts Jt against his bleeding brow, a'nd tfien against hlq •pierced side, and with the crimson ag- euinyiation of all those wounds he rubs •cltfhb the|h^ig'ht F «f'lts and he went height ovet height, altitude above altitude, mountain above mountain, then sank down,in discouragement and gave it flp ( fir he saw-Sierra Nevadas beyond ahd Matterhofns beyond, and waving his hands back to Us ifa the plains, he says, "Past finding out; un- searchable, that in all things he might have the pre-eJninenee." You notice that nearly all -the sinners mentioned as pardoned In the Bible were great '•sinners—David a great sihner, Paul a great sinner, Magdalen a great sinner, the Prodigal Son a great sinner. The world easily Understood how Christ could; pardon a half-and-half sinner, but what the world wants to be persUad- ed"' of is that Christ will forgive the Worst sinner, the hardest sinner, the oldest sinner, the most inexcusable sinner. To the sin-pardoning Shiloh let ail the gathering of the people be. i But, I remark again, the people will gather round Christ as a sympathizer. Oh! we all want ^sympathy. I hear people talk as though they were independent of it. None of US could live without sympathy. When'parts of our family are away, how lonely the house seems until they all get home! But alas! for those who never come home. Sometimes It seems as if. it must be impossible. What, will their feet never again come over the" threshold? Will they never again sit with us at the table? Will they never again kneel with us at family prayer? , Shall we never again look into their'sunny faces? Shall "we never again on earth take counsel ^ivith thenv'for bdriwork? Alas!:me'j who can stand under ? thesjj griefs?/Oh! Christ', thou canst |dq m'ore-for a jberefti'sdul than any one else. It is he who stands beside us to tell of the resurrection. It is he that came to bid peace. It is ho that comes 'to 'us and breathes into us the splrlt'bf submission until wo can Jobk up frpin the wreck 'and ruin of our., brightest, expectations ,and say:, "Father, 'hpt my will, but thine be done." Oh; ye who are bereft, ye anguish-bitten,- come' into this refuge. The roll of those who came for relief-: to Christ is larger and larger. -Unto this Sliiloh of'omnipotent sympathy ; the gathering of the people shall be.. Oh, that Christ 'would stand by. all these empty cradles, and all these desolated homesteads'and all these broken hearts, and persuade us it is well. The world cannot offer you'- any. help at such a time. , Suppose' tiie world comes and offers you money^'You would rather live on a crust in ,a cellar and have your departed loved: ones with you, than live in palatial surroundings •'and they aw,ay. Suppose the- world offers you its honors to console you. What is the presidency 'to Abraham Lincoln when little Willie,lies dead in the White House? Perhaps the world comes and says: "Time will cure it all." Ah, there are griefs that have raged on for thirty years and are. raging yet. And.yet hundreds have been comforted, thousands have been comforted, millions have been comforted, (the acousa|ory chapter, bjqts Vr <p,y \ t^V IJfv, put piir Inhumes, Oh! never be anx- aijput ^he jfijture; better be anxious t the past, I put }t not at the end my sermPQ!

Oh, what you want is sympathy, The world's heart':of sympathy:beats very irregularly." Plenty of sympathy when wo do not want it, and often when we are In; appalling need of it no sympathy. .''There' are multitudes of people dying for sympathy—sympathy In •their work,; sympathy In their fatigues, sympathy 'in their bereavements, sym- 'p'nt.hy iii : thejr- financial losses, sympathy in their physical ailments, sympathy in' the-.time of declining years- Wide, 'deep, •high, eve'rlasting, almighty sympathy. We^must have it, and Christ ? i^es it,. That is the chord with which aha going-to draw all nations to him. '.At the story of punishment a man's eye flashes and his teeth set and his fist clinches, and he prepares to do battle even though it be against tho heavens; yet what heart so hard but it will succumb to the story of compas- sicni , Even a man's sympathy is pleasant and helpful. When we have been in some hour of weakness, to have a Brawny man stand beside us and promise \to' see us through, what courage It ^glves to our heart and what strength It gjves to our arm, Still mightier is a iWpman/B sympathy. Let him tell the who," when all his fortunes were all the world was against him, came home and found in that home a wjfe whp q'puld write pn the top of the empty, flqurTbarrel, "The Lord will pro- ,Y|de;"ior write on the door of the empty wardrobe,.

Who will have compassion oh her when ne others have compassion? Mother! Mother i Ohi there'is s:mething beautiful in sytapatby—in manly sympathy, wifely sympathy,' motherly sympathy; yea, and neighborly tympathy. Why was It that a city wds aroused with excitement when a little child was kidnaped frdM 'ohe of-the streets? Why were whole columns of the newspapers filled with tho story of a little child? It was because we are all one in sympathy, and eyery parent said: "How if it had tieefl my Llzfcie? How If it it had been, my Mary? How if it had been my Maud? How if It had been my child? How If there had been one unoccupied pillow In our trundle-bed to-night?

London's fifteen or sixteen local un- ons of Christian Endeavor have been federated inte a London Council of Christian Endeavor, with Rev. F. B. Meyer ao president. A dince was advertised recently in the town of Union, S, C. To counteract its influence the Christian Endeavor society held a bright social that attracted many of the young people, All of the most prominent .citizens and business men pf Longwood, Fla., are members of the Christian Endeavor society. Such is the hold that the organization has gained, upon the town. During a county convention at Dover, 0, T., thirty persons expressed their purpose to lead Chri«tlan lives, A revival service followed the contention, and eighty*8even other persona were converted. • The PiatrJct of CpJumbia Christian Endeavor Union has Ju»t held it» aa* nual convention, whleh wa» a great qulckener of enthusiasm for "Washington, '98," The time of the latter con- Ventten it) July jj.jg, I8»e.

It is now about twenty miles long by one mile Wide, There are numerous shoals and a line of breakers fifty miles long. The wrecks abotii !his place are almost increditablo in lumber, something over two, hundred laving been known during this century. Very strong currents run abou' It, in some instances sweeping entirely around it in fierce whirls that cut away the mainland and tear out the shoals The heavy winds cause a continual change in the surface of the island Landmarks are almost immediately destroyed, and constant watchfulness i necessary to prevent the sand near tho few dwellings from being blown away altogether. There are a few wild horses on the island, and these sometimes furnish food for the dwellers oh this 'bar< ren drift. A cut lous condition of affairs as regards smaller animals is thus described by a visitor: "English rab bits were introduced at one time and soon overran the island, but they were exterminated by rats that came ashore from some vessel. The government then sent cats to the island, and these, after extinguishing the rats., became so numerous that dogs and shot-guns were brought to destroy them. Rabbits were then imported once more, and again became numerous, but were exterminated P. second tfme by snowy owls." The dangerous condition of this vicinity has suggested the advisability of removing the few inhabitants and blowing up the island altogether. Maintaining lighthouses is an extremely expensive affair. One built in 1873 cost forty thousand dollars, and was swept away within ten years. Since 1882 the lighthouse uas been moved three miles inland from Its original location. The island has little, if any value, and is a constant menace to navigation. Utilize the Ocean's Waves. . Out at the end of the long wharf at Japitola, Cal., a mild mannered Ger man is at work, trying to perfect an invention, which, If successful, will revolutionize the • motive power of tho world; that is, it will introduce to al parts of the country bordering on •< sea 'coast a cheap and powerful motive power, which can turn the wheels o factories and generate electricity which will furnish light and heat. This is the German inventor's dream, and he has so far succeeded In convincing cap ital of the feasibility of his project to harness the waves that he secured $20, 000 from San Francisco parties with which to construct the plant, which Is now being put Into operation at the end of the wharf far out into the Mon ter^y bay. The wave motor is apparently a very simple contrivance. There are .two wave motors, each having three pad /lies. Mr. Gerlach explained that In his experiment near Los Angeles he used a paddle wheel,.but be found tha only three of the paddles touched the water, so he now uses only that num her. The two motors are dropped in the water, and the waves move them back and forth. To each motor Is attached a cable connecting with the flywheel, and this wheel goes in onedl- rection, no matter which way the mo- ,tors hanging In the water are moved by tho action of the waves. At leas that is the result which Is confidently expected by the inventor, who asserts that failure Is next to Impossible—tha as long as the waves come and go the motor will turn. "This is the nearest thing to perpot- uftl motion the-world will ever know, 'said Mr. Gerlach, in explaining the expected operation of. his Invention. '"No, I do not think there is any chance 'at a failure," he continued. "This has TUB WAVE MOTOR LOOKING TOWARD THW 8BA. all been carefully and correctly figured out, I know Juat how much force Is po»8e<j8ed by the waves In water of tftiu depth, I have calculated the re* jfJutoaee offered by the weight of tiio act0r»/0n.d tWy havo been construct- fi4 accordingly, Wo will have Buffleloat fee to turn that fly-wheel, at tae \oty imt, tweniy-flve tiine» u, minute A»y WScJlJnJKt can e»tlm«to what thtt't .in «.„„—.,.,,. f£fr u WJJI w%$$wimon& ;f •> fl8&«3r£* r J/S! * h $ ffd£«v tfwttf »$»:««* f» • Jt j ,r, i< i < < , ' V to* ^jHf«ymj u«e wp w m put M.j 8 Maw* mp,,weHjn$ yomt of inotiU tin jcwtor to will fis la supplying power to * tlwlgel ' Jt l8 llk(J ly to' be.

Mr. Gerlach said that probably with- la a week the wave motor would be in operation, aad that it would then require but a short time to fully demonstrate the possibilities of the invention. —San Francisco Chronicle.'. A Submarine Torpedo Boat, Prof, Louis Gathman, the scientist, has perfected a torpedo which, he says, will revolutionize modern Warfare and do about everything but climb a tree. His torpedo, in external apt pearance, greatly resembles those it] use by the nations today, but tho in-i ternal arrangements are radically 'difi ferent. Gun cotton or dynamite may be used in the explosion chamber a\i the forward end, and a slight pressure upon a pin projecting frorii the point of, the torpedo makes the discharge, The rear end la filled with a chemical, the nature of which Prof. Gathman will not divulge, which will propel the pro- jectlle through the water as a skyrocket through the air. This torped< has been found available at a distanc< of two miles, and will travel in at absolute straight line unless diverted by currents, while those in use todaj are only available up to forty or fifty fathoms. When the propelling power is exhausted water is admitted, and thd torpedo sinks to the bottom out of th<j way of friendly shipping. Prof. Gathman has a special torpedo boat for use with his projectiles, ij model of which is in his studio. It ii) cigar shaped, with two oval turrets oij top, the lower and larger one contain- taining the cabins and pilot house, and the upper one serving merely to protect the smoke stacks and air tubes, Projecting from the top of this turret and in front of the tubes for ventilation is a smaller tube containing a telescope and prism, which operates like a camera obscura, and throws on a screen above the helmsman whatevei is taking place in front of the boat. Bj an ingenious arrangement connected with the telescope, torpedoes can be accurately directed toward any point. This boat will be 120 feet long, 15 feet beam and will contain engines ol 1,800 horse power. Slightly projecting from the pointed end of the boal is a twenty-two ton torpedo gun. Al the rear end is the propeller, and on the top and bottom of the boat direc ly forward of the propeller are tw fans to be used in steering. It is in tended that the boat shall be sub merged up to the turrets -at all times but by the movement of a single leve all external openings are closed an the boat can sink below the surface Two fans on each side similar to th rudders facilitate this. ' Prof. Gath man estimates that it will be posslbl to go at least two miles under the sur face of the water before a new suppl of air is necessary, and the telescop arrangement can be shot upward fo steering purposes. Insects Committing Suicide. It is stated that insects havo bee known deliberately to kill themselve under certain forms of torture or pro vocation. Experiments have been trie upon wasps, which are extremely sensl tlve to benzine and dislike the odor ver much. A tumbler was sprinkled wit benzine, then inverted over a wasi which at once attacked a 'bit of pape that was under the glass. Finally th' wasp appeared to become desperate, H threw himself on his back, bent him self together and drove his sting thre times into his body, then he died, Re peated trials convinced the scientist that wasps, would, under these circum stances, take their own lives, as severs of them got out of their uncomfortabli atmosphere in this way. . Urenlc, It pan scarcely be wojidered at tha propeller shafts give way under the tremendous strain caused by the rolling of the ship In a heavy «fea. The leverage when tlje ship Arises on the .crest of a wave would seem to be sufflclenl tp tear the structure in pieces. Engj. neera have been glvjng'sorae attention to this subject, and find that it is nol an unusual thing for the shaft of propeller to be sprung au incli and quarter to' an inch and a half during heavy storms. Proper bracing an d strengthening win do away with this danger. • ' Extreme cold increases the tenacity of pure metals U n4 alloys, ami this « lie In v *"* WHIMS I'Qlula must that gwWMtflJy ^ «ohoi'o«t ftfl4 tgiittolous (W4- Mh A \ ° W WPQH«1 of WQloeuleii, ftmi i vfa 'wft*W^J»y}M*K l Wtlit WpiiUj |'00Ull'0 nn lent '^W|fftWW^,'HWQUU)r dl liCttt to di'ltra »i./.
