w J*Y 6>« XIV.—(CONTINUED) . .wakened by the crash, Tiomane -ang from her bed. In the next room heard Marltza crying for aid in a rifled voice. Forgetting all her un- dness, Tiomane was about to go to when she heard Bill's voice In the .rtment. The faithful servant had e at once to her young mistress. At t moment a second peal of thunder, terrible even than the 'first, was ,rd. From its apparent nearness, it .st. have fallen oh the palace, and, some disaster had happened, there suddenly a hurrying to and fro, opening and shutting of doors, ck steps, confused voices. "What happened? Trembling with terror, mane ran to the window and opened shutter. As she did so a blinding :h of lightning made her reel. The iat mansion shook to its foundations, understood all, and her blood imed frozen In her veins—It was an •thquake. One must have felt this .efinable, Irresistible, giddy sensa- whlch terrifies the bravest hearts, imagine Tlomane's feelings. For a ;ent she stood petrified; then an- flash showed her the oscillation he mirror over the mantel, and at same time it seemed to her that the ,ce was torn from Its foundations, frightful confusion of voices suc- ed the fail of heavy furniture, the 'sh of china, the ringing of bells, a ,fening mingling of : sounds under subterranean upheaval. Obedient [the Impulse so well known to those o have passed through such a chaos " nature, Tiomane, half-distracted, lathless, opened her door, rushed out ,p the corridor, crossed It—still with dreadful feeling that the earth was ng from under her feet. The door' the vestibule was - open. She ihed the garden, illumined by the tnlng flashes, which constantly eeded each other, or rather which mingled in one immense blinding as if the heavens were consuming earth. All the inhabitants of the lulate. were fleeing to the garden., followed the others, and soon ed the orange grove, and then a it esplanade, far from any of the Idings, the surest refuge from the lending danger. In the lurid light recognized Madame de Sorgnes and rltza, and knelt on the ground be- them. At last the wlshed-for day [wned. The shocks had ceased; e degree of calm returned to the ror-strlcken hearts, uddenly, in a hollow whisper, the rds were heard: 'And the consul, where Is he?" ' t was the voice of the devoted 'lend, the chancellor, Monsieur de lez. husband!" exclaimed Madame de rgnes, suddenly awakened from the ;upor into which she seemed to have "lien. ,t once every group was scrutinized, dear name was repeated, was led—no answer came., What mistune had overtaken him? Madame ISorgnes remembered that it was he o had assisted her in leaving the 'omed dwelling; it was he, the lov- husband and father, who, with ..ughtful affection, had thrown their iiitels over the shoulders of 'his wife daughter, and had even put on ilr slippei's, for in their terror they re unable to help themselves. It s he who had conducted them to garden; but having reached the en, they had become separated, en she could remember nothing more er memory was a perfect blank, garden, then, was the place to rch. Monsieur de Riez, followed by ny of the servants,'went to seek his id. Madame de Sorgnes, leaning Marltza's arm, followed slowly, Tiomane, her loving heart torn with Jiciety, not feeling the flinty path ich was tearing her bare feet, was last of the sad train, No trace of dear lost one. They walked on and ,ched the,broad avenue leading from palace. There was a cry of tnex- dlstress. Three of the marble mns of the summeivnouse were ly« broken on the ground, IJnder the rls was a human body, face down- d. A hand, out off at the wrist by liece of the falling 1 capital, bore on Ittle finger a ring with the consul's 'of arms, The chancellor made an ratlve gesture of warning that ame de Sorgnes might be prevented . advancing. But the half-dls- 'ted woman, breaking away from the hands which held her back, . to .the spot. She uttered one .rtrending cry and fell fainting to obeyed her directions. Jfadataoiselle raseale, pretending that It was'neces- sary to spare Marltza's delicate herves, remained shut'Up in her own suite of apartments, far from the sick room, thus saving herself from the onerous duties of hUrSe. Oh the tenth day after the funeral, Madame de gorgttes awakened, after a night of peaceful sleep, and recognized those around her. Tiomane, Who was at her pillow, was the first to receive a look of recognition. This return of reason was also that of suffering, ahd the poor lady burst Into tears and sobs. Tiomane sent for Mar 1 Itza, Who threw herself Into herrnother** arms, and the three grief stricken ones mingled their tears. A letter from dull- laume came In reply to the telegram an* nounclng the terrible accident. How grteved he- was not to be with his mother and sister In their sorrow! What would he not have given tO' seethe remains of that dear father! But the distance was so- great that he was obliged to give up that sad consolation! and remain at school, feeling that in so doing he was obeying his father's wishes. The convalescence of the invalid was very slow. But after many weeks she was dressed by 1'ovlng hands,, and moved wearily about her apartments In her mourning crapes. She consented to receive Prince Hassan, and' Marltza found her sweet smiles again in the presence of her fiance, whose visit was necessarily short and grave. No one seemed to remember the terrible scene which preceded the lamentable ev^ent.. Even: the governess affected total forgetfulness of any conflict with Tiomane, well satisfied, as she was, that another should assume the duties of nurse and'consoler, and' mentally resolving that she' would indemnify herself for her- enforced amiability later on. A week had passed since Marltza had seen her fiance. The day after his first visit, a note from him announced his sudden departure for (Donr- stantlnople, whither he had been summoned by the grand 1 vizier;. The young girl awaited his return with impatience., One afternoon Madame de Sorgnes, seated on the veranda of her- suite- of apartments, was conversing sadly with the two young 'girls. Mademoiselle Pascale was reacting a newspaper;. Bllli came to ask her mistress' permission to allow the chancellor to Join them. A sign of acquiescence- being, given, M. dte Rlez entered. He- carried und'er one arm an enormous role off papers,, and' his face was extremely grave., He- remained some minutes- almost .slltent, seated by the Invalid's chair, as iff he hesitated to announce the real object of his visit. But at last he said,, with evit- dent reluctance: "Dear madam, I have deferred,, as. long as possible, intruding upon -your- sorrow, to call your attention to> busL- &&VL id heftf/' „_ M "After wfiat 1 n&ve tattered, em thiftf be p-alfifui? 1 ' she murmured, tfy* ing, tint vainly, to stifle 1 hfefr stfos.

"in the first place, madam, 1 must tell you that the French government will send a consul-general Here soon, and It will be necessary for you to tore- pare to leave this house." ! "Cfcn Jt be true? t had not even thought of anything so dreadful. It is cruel to take evert my house front me." Tears flowed 1ft torrents dowh her pale cheeks. ' "LeaVe out- home! oh, cah It be possible?" esclalmea Marltaa, "Monsieur de Rie*»" said Madam da, lit a calmer tone, "is there no Way of arranging this matter? This house, whefe 1 have lived So happily with my husband, is Very dear to me. There are other mansions In Smyrna suitable for the consulate. 1 wish to purchase this one." The chancellor started, and his kind face became very sad. "You do not know, dear wiadam," he said, "you have never known* for your good husband shielded yott from all care, the anxieties' by which he was often well-nigh overwhelmed. He did not, however, he could not, foresee this terrible denouement—so sad to all of us. Even I, who thought I knew all, was far from suspecting—"' "What do you mean.?" stammered the poor lady, while the two- young girls and the governess looked' at htna with horror-stricken faces. "You must know all', my dear madam," he answered. "The situation, the painful situation, demands certain, steps which must be taken at once." "Speak! speak plainly, that I may understand you," said the wtdowv growing still more agitated. "Allow me, then, dear mad'am,. to state as briefly as possible these- most painful details. These are the facts: Monsieur de Sorgnes, a most skillful financier, has for many year* engaged 1 1« the boldest stock speculations. For some time he was very successful, but his expensive manner of living swallowed up this money as fast as it was made. The last few years hav» been most disastrous—but his was one of those brave, hopeful hearts- not easily cast down. In order not to> change-hiis- manner of living, In order not t& deprive his Idolized wife and children of the luxuries to which they had 1 been accustomed, he was forced' to> borrow money. 'Everything leads me to believe that, had he lived',, alt would have gone well; but now—" Madame de Sorgnes listened to a sort of stupor, not understanding the ftttt meaning of these terrible word's, not daring to look Into the frightful abyss so suddenly opened' before- her, but trernWnS from head' to foot, yrfth a nameless terror of the- future.

Learned and consecrated men who have studied the inspired books of irnniel and fteve* latlon more than I have and understand them better, agree In sayihg that the leopard mentioned in the Bible meant G>e- cla, and the bear meant Medo-Persia, and the lion meant Babylon, ahd the beast of the text coming up out of the earth with two horns like a lamb and the voice of a dragon means our country, because among other reasons it seemed to come up out of the earth When Columbus discovered It, and it has been for the most part at peace like a lamb, unless assaulted by foreign foe, In which case it has had two horns strong and sharp, and the voice of a dragon loud enough , to make all nations hear the roar of its Indignation. Is it reasonable to suppose that God would leave out from the prophecies of His Book this whole Western Hemisphere? No, no. "I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon." Germany for scholarship. England for manufactories. Prance for manners. Egypt for antiquities. Italy for pictures. But America for God! I start with the cheering thought that the most popular book on earth today is the Bible/the most popular Institution on earth today Is the church, and the most popular name on earth today Is Jesus. Right from this audience hundreds of men and women would, if need be, march out and die for Him. Am I too confident in saying "America for God?" If the Lord will help me I will show the strength and extent of the long line of fortresses to be taken, and give you my reasons for saying it can be done and will be done. Let us decide, in this battle for God, whether we are at Bull Run or at Gettysburg. "And then?" she murmured, not having courage to give utterance to her fears. Monsieur de- Ri'ea avoided 1 a direct reply. "You see, my dear mad'am, that the situation is very grave, and that It i must be carefully weighed by you. Now that you are- te some degree prepared, shall we examine together all this business, In detail? As chancellor of the consulate, and as the dearest friend of the deceased, the whole responsibility devolves on me. You know my love for your husband. I wish, to show to his wife and children the same devotion, the same zeal." Madame de Sorgnes did not reply. She was overwhelmed with horror of a disaster the whole extent of which she could not measure. "I have here," continued Monsieur de Biez, pointing to the enormous bundle of papers which he had laid upon the table near him, "all the documents bearing upon the case; all the bills contracts, notes, etc., which must be submitted to you, my dear madam." atcoholismj ite'biied up- ctafilJohiiB attd beer barrels, and Wgaheadi* ef fiery death, a barricade high and long &a the Alleghefiles and Rockies ftfld Sierra Nevadas, pouring forth day and flight their ammunition of wretchedness and Woe. When a German wants te take a drink, he takes beef. When aft En-> giishman wants' to take a drink t he takes ale. When a Scotchman wants to take a drink, he takes whisky. But when an American Wants to take a drink, he takes anything he can lay his hands on, Plenty of statistics to tell how much money Is spent In this country for rum, and how many drunkards die! But who will give us the statistics of how many hearts are crushed under the heel of this worst demon of the centuries? How many hopes blasted? How many children turned out on the world, accursed with stigma of a debauched ancestry? Until the worm of the distillery becomes the worm that never dies, and the smoke of the heated wine vats becomes the smoke of the torment that ascendeth up forever and ever! Alcoholism, swearing—not with hand Uplifted toward heaven, for from that direction it can get no help; but with right hand stretched down toward the perdition from which it came up— swearing that it will not cease as long as there are any homesteads to despoil, any magnificent men and women to destroy, any immortal souls to damn, any more nations to balk, any more civilizations to extinguish. Then there is what In America we call-Socialism, in France Communism and in Russia Nihilism—the three names for one and the same thing—anc having but two doctrines'in its creed First, there is no God. Second, there shall be no rights of property. One of their chief journals printed this sentiment: "Dynamite can be made out of the dead bodies of capitalists as well ,as out of hogs." One of the leaders of Communism left inscribed on his prison wall, where he had been justly incarcerated, these words: "When onceiy«u are dead, there Is an end of everything; therefore, ye scoundrels, grab whatever you can—only don't let yourselves be grabbed. Amen!"

Honest men deplore most tired and plucked bird that ever it when they cannot get work, but those flew through the heavens is the Ameri— ' ,can eagle, so much so that Mr. Gladstone said to me facetiously, at Hawarden: "I hear that the fish in ' your American lakes are so large that when one of taken but the entire lake is perceptibly lower," and at a dinner given in Paris an American offered, for a sentiment: "Here is to the United States—bounded on the north by the aurora borealis, on the south by the procession of the equinoxes, on the east by the primeval chaos, and on the west by the Day of Judgment." The effect of such grandiloquence is to discredit the real facts, which are so tremendous of whom I speak will not do work when they can get it. I tried to employ one who asked me for money. I said, "Down in my cellar I have some wood to saw, and 1 will pay you for it." For a little while I heard the saw going, and then I heard it no more, I went downstairs, and found the wood, but the workman had disappeared, taking for company both buck ahd saw. Socialism, Communism and Nihilism mean, "Too wicked to acknowledge God, and too lazy to earn a living," and among the mightiest obstacles to be overcome are those organized elements of domestic, social and political ruin.

The funeral had taken place t amid heartfelt dem- »onstratlons of grief, jfor all who knew i Monsieur de Sorg* nes loved him, After the first terrible emotion, the stricken widow had ta* her bea—brain fever super* accompanied by alternate ,„„_„ and unoQnselousness, and was spared, at least, the last sad to ae4, UNDER THE DEBIUS WAS A. HUMAN BODY. ness matters—always painful under such circumstances—peculiarly so to you, I know—but I can put it off no longer—It is absolutely necessary." Tiomane and "Mademoiselle," foreseeing a confidential business conversation, rose to leave the room. "No, no, remain," said the widow, "I have no secrets from you, my dear OPOS." The chancellor, with an encouraging smile, said, "Madame de Sorgnes is quite right in keeping near her those who love her best—for she needs all their sympathy and devotion," The governess and Tionvuie resumed their seats. Maritza, with an instinctive feeling of fear, took her mother's hand and held it, as if to reassure her. The chancellor continued, "You understand, my dear madam, dp you not, I wish to talk to you of business matters?" • The widow made a gesture of weariness. "I beg, madam," he continued more earnestly, "that you will listen atten* tively, for it is necessary, most neces- eary, that you should understand these matters, Judge and decide, J repeat, it is a question of your business matters, and it is imperatively necessary that you should understand them thoroughly." She shrugged her shoulders wearily. "It is useless, quite useless, I am utterly unable to think, to understand. £nd then, you Know, I know nothing of business matters, interest, and all that- Certainly, he did know it. He knew well, only too well, that frivolous, childish mind, governed by caprice alone, incapable of any serious, thought, of any mental effort whatever. He continued, nevertheless, in a still graver tone; "These inatters are most important, hpweveri my dear madam, for on you alone rests the responsibility of directing your household, <rf watching qyer the interests of your eh'^ren .' At this evaeatipjj of her loss, the poor lady could no longer strain her tears. The visitor ceased speaking, evidently distressed by this transport of grief, of which he bad been the innopent cause. "You torture nje, you torture roe, Monsieur de Rie?," she explained;, "dp Treat for the Lovers of the Impressionistic School at the Art Institute. Lovers of the impressionistic school will find a treat in store for them in the fifteen pictures of Edouard Manet, which were placed on exhibition at the Art Institute, says Chicago Post.' Manet Is the founder of this school and the master to whom all apostles of the method turn for light and guidance. Like others of his peculiar views his place is not fixed In the world of art and his genius Is a much-disputed point, He is described as an "eccentric realist." and his work stands boldly out In defiance of many of the recognized and revered rales which have been handed down to us. The most Important picture is a large canvas showing Christ attended by angels. The figures are remarkably drawn, and there \a a suggestion of Guerclno In his effects here,' but the imitation, If it is an imitation, Is only a weak one. "The Bull Fight,", Which is spoken of as being one of the most striking examples of Manet's art, possesses a certain dramatic force; the action is good, but the multitude of onlookers is disposed of in a curious way. The tiers of people look a little distance off like banks of beautiful, nodding flowers, While by a somewhat closer inspection they lose even this semblance to a reality and appear only Inexpressive little dabs of paint, The "Concert at the Tuileries" is the best executed work of the entire collec* tion, while "My Garden" shows a mas* terly handling of color. Whatever the opinion held as to his school, his drawing or composition, there Is a freshness and lack of conventionality about M»" net's art that Is as charming as it is unusual, This collection comes to us direct from New York, where it e,tr traotefl much attention•' i tTapa;tese Swords.

Four Europes put together, and capable of holding and feed- Ing, as it will hold and feed.according to Atkinson, the statistician, if the world continues IK existence and does not run afoul of Bomb other world or get consumed by the fires already burning in the cellars of the planet—capable, I say, of holding and feeding more than one billion of inhabitants. For 7011 must remember it must be held for God as well as taken tor God, and the last five hundred million inhabitants must not be allowed to swamp the religion of the first five hundred million, Not much use in taking the fortress if we cannot hold it. It must be held until the archangel's trumpet bids living and dead arise from this foundering planet. You must remember it is only about seven o'clock in the morning of our n.ation'8 life, Great cities are to flash atsct roar among what ( are called the "Bad Lands" of the Pakotas and the great "Columbia Plains" of Washington state, and that on which we put our school-boy fingers on the map and spelled out as the'"Great American Desert," is, through systematic and consummating irrigation, to bloom like Ohatsworth Park and he made more productive th,an those regions dependent upon uncertain and spasmodic rainfall, All those regions, a'a well as those regions already cultivated, to be inhabited! That was a sublime thing said by Henry Clay, while crossing the Allegheny mountains, and he was waiting far the stage horses to be rested, as ho stood on a rock, arms folded, looking off into the valley, and some one said to him, "Mr. Olay, what are you thinking about?" He replied, "I am listen- everything done VQU nqt 'pe,e how you make " " e ''«<» y ou in the spring the to y°4ias , that tt t? towprwrtWy Whit fboy Have, The do? has his aay— TQ the cat night falls; The dog has his •yhe catrhe fidelity, and atheism, and fraud, and political corruption, and multiform, hydra-headed, million-armed abominations all over the land. While the mightiest agencies for righteousness on earth are good and healthful newspapers and good and healthful books, and our chief dependence for intelligence and Christian achievement is upon them, what word among words in our vocabulary can describe the work of that; archangel of mischief, a corrupt literature? What man, attempting anything .for God and humanity, has escaped a stroke of its filthy wing? What good cause has escaped its hin- dermenk?: What other obstacle in all the lanflrso. appalling? But I cannot name' more than one-half the battlements;, the bastions, the intrenchrnents, the r.edaubtis,. the fortifications to be stormed and 1 overcome if this country is. ever taken for God. The statistics are- so, awful 1 that if w& had nothing but the mu'lttpUcatton table and the arithmetic:,, the atte-mpt to evangelize America would) be an absurdity higher than the lower el Babel before it dropped on tl*<* plain of Sbinar. Where are the drilled troops to march against those fortifications as Ions as the continent? Where are the batteries that can be up limbered against these walls? Where are the guns of large enough calibre to storm these gates? Well, let us look around and see, the first of all, who is our leader and who will be our leader vwtll the work is done? Garibaldi, with a thousand Italians, could do more than another commander with ten thousand Italians. General Sherman, on one side, and Stonewall Jackspn, on the other, each with ten thousand troops, could do more than some other generals with twenty thpusand troops. The rough boat in which Washington crossed the icy Delaware with a few half-frozen trpqps was mightier than the ship of war that, during the American revolution, came through the narrows, a gun at ouch porthole, and sunk in Heil-Gate.

Mighty Leader, he of Drumclog, and Both well Bridge, and Bannockburtt, and the One who Whelmed Spanish Armada, "Coming up from Edom, with, dyed garments from Bozrah, traveling , In the greatness of his strength, mighty to save," and behind whom we fall Into line to-day and march in the campaign that Is to take America for God. Hosanna HoSanna! Wave all the palm- branches! At his feet- put down your silver and your gold, as in heaven you will cast before him your coronets. With such a Leader do you not think we can do it? Say, do you think wo can? Why, many ramparts have al- * ready been taken. Where Is American slavery? Gone, and the South, as heartily as the North, prays "Peace to Its ashes." Where is bestial polygamy? Gone, by the fiat of the United States government, urged on by Christian sentiment, and Mormonlsm, having retreated in 1830 from Fayette, New York, to Kirkland, Ohio, and In 183S retreated to Missouri, and in 1846 retreated to Salt Lake City, now divorced from its superfluity of wives, will soon retreat Into the Pacific, and no basin smaller than the ocean could wash out its .pollutions. Illiteracy going down under the work of Slater and Peabody funds, and Sabbath schools of all the churches of all denominations! Pugilism now made unlawful by congressional enactment, the brutal custom knocked out in the first round 1 . Corruption at the ballot box, by law of registration and other safeguards, made almost impossible! Churches twice as large as the old ones, the enlarged supply to meet the enlarged demand! Nihilism getting a stunning stroke by the summary execution of its exponents after they had murdered the, policemen in Chicago, received its deathblow from; the recent treaty which sends back to Russia the blatant criminals who had been regurgitated on our American shore. The very things that have been quoted as perils to this nation .are going to help its salvation. Great cities, so often mentioned as great obstacles:— the center of crime and the reservoirs of all iniquities—are to lead in the work of go-apelization.
