And I rejoice to know that the upright piece of wood . nailed to a trans- Verse piece has become the symbol not intire of suffering than of victory. It is of Christ the conqueror, that my text "speaks. As a kingly warrior, having subdued an empire, might divide the palaces and mansions and cities and valleys and mountains among his officers, so Christ is going to divide up all the earth and all the heavens among his people and' you I will have to take our share if we are strong in faith nnd strong in our Christian loyalty, for my text declares it; "He shall divide Ihe spoil with the strong." The capture of this round planet for Christ is not so much of a job as you might imagine, when the Church takes off its coat and rolls up its sleeves for the work, as it will. There are sixteen hundred millions of people now in the world, and four hundred and fifty *„ millions are Christians. Subtract four bundred and fifty millions who are Christions from the sixteen hundred millions, and there are eleven hundred and fifty millions left. Divide the eleven hundred and fifty millions who are not Christians by the four hundred and fifty who are Christians, and you will find that we shall have to average less than three souls each, brought by us into the kingdom of God, to have the whole world redeemed. Certainly, with the church rising up to its full duty, no Christian will be willing to bring less than three souls into the kingdom of God. I hope, and pray Almighty God that I may bring more than three. I know evangelists who have already brought fifty thousand each for the kingdom of God. There are two hundred thousand people whose one and only and absorbing business .in the world is to save souls. When you take these things into consideration, and that the Christians will have to average the bringing of only three souls each into the kingdom of our Lord, all impossibility vanishes from this omnipotent crusade. Why, I know a Sabbath School teacher who for many years has been engaged in training the young, and she has had five different classes, and they averaged seven to a class, and they were all converted, and five times seven are thirty-five, as near as I can calculate. So that she, brought f"*" *hree into the kingdom of God and hac: cuirty-two to spare. My grandmother prayed her children into the kingdom of Christ, and her grandchildren, and I hope all her great-grandchildren, for God remembers a prayer seventy-five years old, as though it were only a minute old; and so she brought her three Into the kingdom of God, and had more than one hundred to spare. Besides that, through the telephone and the telegraph, this whole world, within a few years, will be brought within compass of ten minutes. Besides that, omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience are presiding in this matter of the world's betterment, and that takes the, question of the world's salvation out of the impossibilities into the possibllites, and then cut of tbe possibilities into the probabilities, and then out of the probabilities into tbe certainties. The building of tbe Union Pacific Railroad from ocean to ocean was a greater undertaking than tbe girdling of tbe earth with the Gospel; for one enterprise depended upon the human arm, while Che other depends upon almlghtiness. LJ I really mean that all the earth will surrender to Christ? Yes. How - about tbe uninviting portions? Will Greenland be evangelised? The possi- bilHy is that after a few more hundred ''brave lives are dashed out among the icebergs, that great refrigerator, tbe r pplar region, will be given up to the walrus and bear, and that the inhabi* . tants will come dpwn by invitation in* ' to tolerable climates, or those climates • may gpften; an& »8 It bas been positively demonstrated that the Arctic re- garden and fruit*til flejd, those tef Jpns way climate ana again he a bloom 'ijfejjbjftg fet" tfWtitiiC *te #tt ifc~mi m tern* up id Int treat Amerfciil desert tweefl bite and the faelfic by "mil efy fid* tetwl m yd _ and, fti 0>eM Salt LafcYcity has nS rain atfd froalri aol fralsg an ajjple «tf a in a ' " withettt artificial neifr,*b1it Is through such nieatis one great garden, Sd all tbe tihptodaeUvg parts of all the continents will be tnfned into Harvest fields and orchards, A nalf-ddzen be LeSSgpS Will furnish the World with all the canals needed, and will change the course of rivers aad open new, lakes, and the great Sahara desert will be cut tip into farms with an astonishing yield of bushels to the acre, f he marsh will be drained of its waters and cured oi its malaria, f saw what was for many years called the Black Swamp of Ohio, its chief crop chills atid levers, but now, by the tiles pnt into the ground to carry off tbe surplus moisture, transformed into the richest and healthiest of regions. The God who wastes nothing, I think, means that this World, from pole to pole, has come to perfection of foliage and fruitage. For that reason he keeps the earth running through space, though so many fires are blazing down in its timbers and so many meteoric terrors have threatened to dash it to pieces. As soon as the earth is completed Christ will divide it up among the good. The reason he does not divide it now is because it is not done. A kind father will not divide the apple among his children until the apple is ripe. In fulfilment of the New Testament promise, "The .ueek shall inherit Ihe earth," and the promise of the Old Testament, "He shall divide the spoil with the strong," the world will be apportioned to those worthy to possess it It is not so now. In this country, capable of holding, feeding, clothing and sheltering twelve hundred million people, and where we have only sixty million inhabitants, we have two million who cannot get honest work, and with their families an aggregation of five millions that arc on the verge of starvation. Something wrong, most certainly. In some way, there will be a new apportionment. Many of the millionaire estates will crack to pieces on the dissipations of grand children, and then dissolve into the possession of the masses who now have an insufficiency. ' • What, you say, will become of the expensive and elaborate buildings now devoted to debasing amusements? They will become schools, art galleries, museums, gymnasiums, and churches. The world is already getting disgusted with many of these amusements, and no Wonder. What an importation of unclean theatrical stuff we have within the last few years'had brought, to our shores! And professors of religion patronizing such things! Having sold out to the devil, why don't you deliver the goods and go over to him publicly, body, mind and soul, and withdraw your name from Christian churches, and say: "Know all the world by these presents that I am a patron of uncleanness and a child of hell!" Sworn to be the Lord's, you are perjurers. If you think these offenses are to go on forever, you do not know who the Lord is. God will not wait for the Day of Judgment. All these palaces of sin will become palaces of righteousness. They will come into the possession of those strong for virtue and strong for God. "He shall divide the spoil 'with the strong." China and Africa, the two richest portions of the earth by reason of metals, and rare woods, and inexhaustible productiveness, are not yet divided up among the good because they are not ready to be divided. Wait until the doors that Livingstone opened in Africa shall be entered, and Bishop Taylor, with his band of self-supporting missionaries, have done their work, and the Ashantees and Senegambians shall know Christ as well as you know liim, and there shall be on the banks of the Nile and ; Niger a higher civilization than is now to be found on the hanks of the Potomac or the Hudson, then Christ will divide up that continent among his friends. Wait until China, which is half as large as all Europe, shall have developed her capacities for rice and tea and sugar among edibles; and her .amethyst and sapphire and topaz and opal and jasper and porphyry, among precious stones; and ber rosewood and ebony and camphor and varnish trees, among precious woods; and turned up from her depths a halfTdezen Pennsyl- vanlas of coal and iron, and twenty Ne. vadas of silver, and fifty Callfornias of gold, and her flve bundred millions pf people shall be evangelized; then the will divide it up among tbe good.

"But," you say, "that this Is pleasant to think of for others, bat before that time I shall have passed tip into an* other existence, and I shall get no advantage from that new apportionment." Ah, you have only driven me to tho other more exciting and transporting consideration, and that is, that Christ is going to divide up heaven In the same way. There are old estates in the celestial world that have been In tho possession of the inhabitants for thousands^ of years, and they shall remain as they are. There are old family mansions in heaven filled with whole generations of kindred, and they shall never be driven out. Many of the victors from earth have already got their palaces, and they are pointed out to those newly arrived. Soon after our getting there we will ask to be shown the Apostolic ^residences, and ask where does Paul live, and John; and shown the patrlarchial residences, and shall say: "Where does Abraham live, or Jacob?" and shown the martyr residences and say: "Where doe/ John Huss live, and Ridley?" We will want to see the boulevards where the chariots of conquerors roll. • I will want to see the gardens where the princes walk. We will want to see Music Ro.w, where Handel and Haydn and Mozart and Charles Wesley and Thomas Hastings and Bradbury have their homes, out of their windows, ever and anon, rolling some snatch of an earthly oratorio or hymn transported with the composer. We will want to see Revival Terrace, where Whltefield and Nettleton and Payson and Rowland Hill and Charles Finney and other giants ..of soul reaping are resting from their almost supernatural labors, their doors thronged with converts just arrived, coming to report themselves. But brilliant as the sunset, and like the leaves for number, are the celestial homes yet to be awarded, when Christ to you, and millions of others, shall divide the spoil. What do • you want there? You shall have it. An orchard? There it is; twelve manner of fruits, and fruit every month. Do you-want river scenery? Take your choice on the banks of the river, in longer, wider, deeper roll than Danube or Amazon or Mississippi if mingled in one, and emptying into the sea of glass, mingled with fire. Do you want your kindred back again? Go out and meet your father and mother without the staff or the stoop, and your children in a dance of immortal glee. Do you want a throne? Select It from the million burnished elevations. Do you want a crown? Pick it out of that mountain of diamonded coronets. Do you want your old church friends of earth around you? Begin to hum an old revival tune and they will flock from all quarters to revel with you in sacred reminiscence. All the earth for those who are here on earth at the time of continental and planetary distribution, and all the heavens for those who are there. But notice that there is only one Being in tbe universe who can and will distribute the trophies of earth and heaven. It is the Divine Warrior, the Commander-in-Chief of the Centilries, the Champion of Ages, the universal Conqueror, the Son of God, Jesus, You 'will take the spoils from his hand, or never take them at all. Have his friendship and you may defy all time and all eternity, but without it you are a pauper, though you had a universe at your command. We are told in Revelation that Jacob's twelve sons were so honored as tp have the twelve gates of heaven named after them—over one gate of heaven Naphtall, over another of heaven Issachar, over another Dan, over another Gad, over another Zebulon, over another Judah, and so on, But Christ's name is written over all the gates, and on every panel of the gates; and have bis help, his pardon, bis intercession, bis atonement, I must, or be a forlorn wretch for ever.

An eminent authority on mental conditions calls attention to the peculiar fads and fancies that seem to take hold upon the minds of many persons and to entirely dominate them, much to their disadvantage and often to the deterioration of their mental powers. One man who conceived a fancy for counting the numbers on freight cars, carried this notion to such an extent that he oftentimes forgot errands and neglected his business. He began by having his attention called to the figures on a car that surprised him as indicating a very large number of cars owned by a certain railroad. Then it entered his mind to look for the next lowest number. This he did, and found it, after several weeks' watching. Then he was filled with the idea of securing the numbers in succession, and gave his attention to picking them out whenever he went near railroads. He had a book for this purpose, and so completely did this take possession of him that he became exceedingly annoyed and irritated when it grew so dark that he could not see t'he figures on the cars as he passed them. The case became rather serious, and the attention of a physician was called to it. He recommended a long sea voyage, which was taken, much against the patient's will, as he was reluctant to give up his hunt for numbers. After he had become entirely accustomed to the absence of his favorite amusement, he was reasoned with and shown the folly of It. Being a man of strong will, he took himself in hand, and, after a hard struggle, was able to go about, oblivious to the fact that freight cars had figures on them. Walking: Telephone, rho French military authorities have adopted a field telephone service as a means of communicating between different wings of the army on the field of battle, A single wire is used, the sarth being used for the return current, and the connection being established through the sword of the soldier carrying the apparatus. This is thrust into the ground at his side.

Its value for cutting and polishing has been known since the beginning of history. Very crude methods ate in use for obtaining this substance for market. Enormous fires are btiilt on or against the rocks, which are then broken or cracked by throwing jets of cold water against them. Emery has many uses, among which are its employment in polishing and Cutting. Being so unmanageable, it for a long lime defied the efforts of man to put it into available shape, but at length it was cemented into usable forins, and it was molded into wheels. Emery millstones are a la'tei} day improvement. They are the most practical of all stones, becausa they are not affected by heat, and tha face is always sharp. As cutting and; polishing powder, emery is of greaf value, and emery sandpaper is an important article of manufacture. Niagara's New Bridge. Ground has been broken for a new. steel arch bridge over the chasm at Niagara Falls, which will be a wonder in that line. The new bridge will have a span of eight hundred and forty feet, In width it will be forty-nine feet. This? increased width is made necessary from the fact that about twenty-three, feet of the center will be given up to a double track trolley line. On each; side of these tracks there will be carriage-ways eight feet wide and beyond these still there will be elevated walkj each about three feet nine inches wid? for pedestrians. In all about four mi) lion pounds of steel will be used. Tattooed Mnrka of Affection. From the London Daily Graphic: Tha enamored swain who protests that ha will wear the image of the adored lady next to his heart Is usually considered to speak a language of poetry translated directly from the boards of the trans- pontine theater. We learn, however, from an interviewer with an "up-to- date tattooer," published in the Echo, that this is not always so, and that a considerable business is f^one in imprinting—in two colors—the "counterfeit presentment" of the chosen fair one as near to the heart of her lover as is consistent with his personal safety. The practice is a romantic one, but it has its disadvantages. The face of the lady may fade from an inconstant suitor's mind, but it can never fade from the skin. Nevertheless, the portrait of his discarded fair, indelible though it be, is surely not incapable of alteration. The features, might, perhaps, with a little ingenuity be "adapted" and the face of the old love be brought by some artist of the needles to "something distinctly resembling" that of the new one who has come to reign in her stead. To Save the Buffalo.' Secretary Langley of the Smithsonian Institution reports that hunters are continually killing the few remaining Buffalo which the government is trying to preserve and protect in tho Yellowstone National Park, A fe^; years ago it was believed that there were two hundred of the animals in the ?ark; now only about fifty remain. Thq head or skin of a buffalo sells for sev-. eral hundred dollars, and while the poachers cannot resist the consequent temptation, the park is so extensive that no effectual protection can be af- torded by the few troopers in charge. Professor Langley suggests the removal' of the buffalo to the National Zoological Park in Washington, from which, aa their numbers increased, they could be distributed throughout the United States. Chinese Hens. The hens of China lead busy lives When not engaged in hatching out a srood of their own kind they are put to the additional and novel task" of hatching fish eggs. Chinese cheap labor collects the spawn of fish from the water's edge, places it in an empty eggshell, which is then hermetically sealed with wax, and places it under he unsuspecting sitting ben. After some days the eggshell is removed and carefully broken and the spawn, which ms been warmed into ijfe, is emptied nto a shallow pool well warmed by the un. Here the minnows that soon de- relop are nursed until strong enough o be turned into a lake or stream. A Cur? for Eczema. Mrs. M. F.
