S "Not heard, indeed? 1 had two let- jters this morning, and three this afternoon; four wanting to know wheft the 'weddihg was to be, and a fifth from a 'girl asking to be bridesmaid, I am afraid to go out. People fly at me at 'every corner, shake my hatl off and say how delighted they are and how charming it-is and how they always knew it Would come to this, and that ,we are made for one another—they never did know two people so exactly Suited.',' "Extraordinary! That's what they say to me. I never was so taken aback in my life. Of course, we've always been good friends, but—" '• "Certainly not." "And I don't think—" "Neither do I. It's absurd! .Utter nonsense!" ' "No, but really—let us have it out while we are about it. What can have given rise to sucn a ridiculous report? We have been a good deal together, of course, because we are in the same set, and always seem to hit it off, and you are such a jolly good dancer, and all that kind of thing, but I can't see what we have done to set people talking at this rate. Honestly, -now—I am anxious to know—did you ever imagine—that is to cay—did you think—I mean, have I ever—" , "You never have! No, Captain May and I have never Imagined! On the contrary; I don't mind admitting, now that we are upon the subject, that I have cherished a secret grudge against you because you have never given me an opportunity of refusing you. That sort of neglect rankled in a woman's mind and now you see for yourself the awkward position in which it has placed me. When people ask if I am engaged to you I am obliged to confess that I have never been asked. You ought to have thought of this and provided against it. It would have been so easy some night at a ball, or In an Interval at the theater—the whole thing might have been over In five minutes, and then I should have been able to say that I had refused you, and everything would have been happy and comfortable. I don't feel as if I could ever forgive you!" "Sorry, Indeed! You see I should nave been most happy, only I could never feel quite sure that you really . would re—" ''How odious you are! You need not nave been afraid; there never was anything more certain since the beginning of the world. I wouldn't marry you to save your life! I would as soon think of falling-In love with the man In the moon! We have always been friends, of course, but that counts for nothing. Due may like a person very much, and yet find it quite impossible to go any further. I could better love a horse man!" "Same with me! I think no end of /on, but when Lewis came and congrat- • ulated me the other day I was struck all of a heap. If he had said the same thing about a dozen other girls I should have been less surprised, but it never occurred to me to look upon you in that light," . "DON'T CONTRADICT!" "0, indeed! I'm awfully obliged, I'm we, but I don't think much of your ;aste, There are a dozen other m&n who,Couldn't agree with you, that's one .comfort.

You said I was an ugly thing, and that it exasperated you only to see me. You did! It makes It worse to deny it. I can't think how you can look me in the face!" "Why get excited? It's really not worth while, and you will make yourself hot. It's not becoming to be hot. I was about to say, when you so rudely interrupted me, that you had misunderstood the meaning of my remarks. I simply observed—" "I don't care a little bit what you observed. I'm not going to talk tc you any longer. Good afternoon, Captain May. You needn't dance with me at Lady Bolton's this evening, as my hair annoys you so much!" "I shall ask Miss Cunliffe iAstead. She is a capital waltzer. Yoiy mother is waiting for you at the door. Fourth and sixth, wasn't it, and the first extra? I must ask her at once, as she is so much engaged. Good afternoon, then, Miss Blanchard. i£ you will go, and as the gootj little boys say, 'Thank you ao much for the pleasant afternoon!'" "He never thought of such a thing. It never occurred to him to think of her in that light. Hateful crer-ture! And why not, I should like to know? Doesn't he think I'm nice? * " * I never cared for him, but he has no business not to like me. What horrid taste! "And to talk of a dozen other girls! That means Lucie Charvie, I suppose, and Adeline Howe. I have noticed that he dances with them. * * * I don't see why he should like them better than me. I'm the prettiest, and I can bo awfully nice if I like. I have never been really nice to him — not my very nicest, or he wouldn't have talked as he did today. * * * I might try the effect this evening. "I meant to be offended, but perhaps the other would have more effect. I believe I'll try it. No one can ever say that I am a flirt, but there are occasions when it is a girl's duty to teach a man a lesson, and he had no business to say that about my hair. * * * I wonder if he was right? He has awfully good taste, as a rule. "I believe after all, it would be rather becoming. * * * m ge t Elsie to try tonight, and wear my new white dress, and the pearls, and I'll say to him the very first thing that I'm sorry, and ask him to dance with me all the same. Then, when he sees how nice I am he will be vexed with himself for being so nasty. It will do him no end of good. "I'd give worlds If he would only propose to me before the season is over! I'd refuse him, of course, but that wouldn't matter; it would be kind of me to take the trouble, because it is dreadful to see a man so conceited, and, if it were not for that, he would be quite charming. * * * I'll begin this evening. How exciting! Poor Captain May!" "She looked disgracefully pretty! Nothing like putting a girl in a good stand-up rage to see what she's made of. I never knew she had so much in her before, And she would just as soon think of falling in love with the man in the moon, would she? That's pretty tall! Hang It all! Why do they put things in a fellow's head? I was happy enough before, and now this has unsettled me altogether. * * * A man may not want to marry a girl, but that's no reason why she should be so precious indifferent, "I always fancied that she had a decided weakness, * * * So she wants to laugh at me, does she? Little wretch! She is always up to some mischief. "I wouldn't object if it was at some other fellow, for those dimples are uncommonly fetching. "I believe she is right about the collars, all the same— thought so myself more than once, if another shape would suit me better, it seems rather absurd to stick to these, 'Man in the moon/ eh? Humph! Well, it doesn't dp to be too awfully sure, it's a bad thing to get into the way of boasting. How would it be if I took her in hand and tried to work a cure?

HERfi 14 a Ilovef- ing hope in the minds of a vast Bmititttde of people ' that there Will be an opportunity In the next world of correcting the mistakes or this; that however complete A shipwreck we may make of our earthly life, it Will be on a beach up which we may walk to a palace; that as the defendant may lose his case in a Circuit Court and appeal it and have it go up to the Supreme Court or Court of Chancery and all the costs thrown over on the other party, so a man may lose his case In this world, but in the higher jurisdiction of eternity have the decision of the earthly case set aside, all the costs remitted and the defendant be triumphant forever. The object of my sermon is to show you that common sense declares with the text that such an expectation is chimerical. "If the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there shall it be." There are those who eay that if the impenitent and unfortunate man enters the next world and sees the disaster, as a result of that disaster he will turn, the distress the cause of his reformation; but we have ten thousand instances all around about us of people v, ; ho have done wrong and disaster uud- » denly came upon them — did the disaster heal them? No, they went on. There is a man flung ot dissipations. The doctor says to him: "Now, my friend, if you don't stop drinking and don't stop this fast life you are living, you will die." The patient thanks the physician for his warning and gets better; he begins to sit up, begins to walk around the room, begins to go to business and takes the same round of grogshops where he got his morning dram and his evening dram and the drams between. Down again. Same doctor. Same physical anguish. Same medical warning. But now the sickness is more protracted, the liver more obstinate, the stomach more irritable, the digestive organs more rebellious. But still, under medical skill, he gets better, goes forth, commits the same sacrilege against his physical health. Sometimes he wakes up to see what he Is doing, and he realizes he is destroying his family and that his life is a perpetual perjury against bis marriage vows, and that that broken-hearted woman is so different from the roseate wife he married that her old schoolmates do not recognize her on the street, and that his sons are going out in life under the taunt of a father's drunkenness, and that his daughters are going out in life under the scarification of a disreputable ancestry. His nerves are all a jangle. From crown of jhead to sole of foot he Is one aching rasping, crucifying, damning torture. Where is he? He is in hell on earth. •Does it stop him? Ah, no. After jawhlle delirium tremens pours out upon (his pillow a whole jungle of hissing reptiles. His screams horrify the neighbors as he dashes out of bed crying: "Take these things off me!" He is drinking down "the comfort of the family, the education of his children, their prospects for this life and perhaps their prospects for the life to come. Pale and convalescent he sits up. Physicians say to him: "Now, my good fellow, I am going to have a plain talk with you. If you ever have an attack of this kind again you will die. I can't save you, and all the doctors in creation can't save you." The patient gets up, starts out, goes the same round of dissipation and is down again; but this time medicines do not touch his case. Consultations of physicians says there is no hope. Death ends the scene, That process of inebriation and physical suffering and medical warning and dissolution is taking place within a stone's throw of where you sit and in every neighborhood of Christendom. Pain does not reform. Suffering does not cure. What is true in regard to one sin is true in regard to all sins, and jj'ot men are expecting in the next life Jhere will be ' opportunity for purgatorial regeneration. Take up the •printed reports of the prisons of the United States and find tbat the vast majority of the criminals were there before, some for two times, three times, four times, six times. Punished again and again, but tbey go right on, Millions of incidents and instances work^ ing the other way, and yet men think that in tbe next world punishment will work out for tbem salvable effects, Wby you and I cannot imagine any worse torture from another world than we have seen men in in this wprld, and without any salutary consequence. Furthermore, the prospect of refer* mat ion in another world is more improbable tban bere, Ro ypu set realise tie facf tbat a man, starts Jn tbls world the jflupoenoe Qt iafajjcy? jn tbe ftase, sorting Ja t»? etbe t»a starts wltb tbe accumulated of « life time, If H not to he t you CQUJ4 b«J}4 ft btWer out 64 MW tifflfeer ttoB Q«t <2f an. up, 0,8 ,°M>&\U|J&ftJ feas blofcfc of pm-fe. white Parian ffiftfbie than tftit ot ft blacfc frock that hfts feifen ci-ftckw afta tfrtetea afid split scarfed $rith the stores ot a half tury? Could you mot Write a last and testatneht, or *rite a deed, of write an important document on a pure white sheet of paper easier- than you could write It upon a sheet scribbled all over with Infamy and blotted and torn' from lop to bottom? And yet there are these who are so uncommdn-senslcal as to believe that though a man starts In this world with infancy and its Ihao- cehce and tufha out badly, in the nefct world he can start with a dead failure and turn out well. "But," say some people, "we ought to have another chance In the next world because our life here Is so very brief; we scarcely have room to turn around between the cradle and the grave, the Wood of the one almost striking against the marble of the other. We ought to have another chance because of the brevity of this life." My friends, do you know what made the ancient deluge a necessity? It was the longevity of the antediluvians. They were worse in the second century than in the first, and worse •when they got three hundred years old, and worse at four hundred, and worse" at five hundred, and worse at six hundred, and worse at eight hundred; until the world had to be washed and scoured and scrubbed and soaked and sunk and anchored a whole month under water before it was fit for decent people to live in. I have seen many pictures of old Time with his scythe to cut, but I never saw any picture of Time with a chest of medicines to heal. Seneca said that in the first few years of his public life Nero was'set up as an example of clemency and kindness, but he got worse and worse, the path descending, until at sixty-eight years of age he was the suicide. If eight hundred years of lifetime could not cure the antediluvians of their iniquity, I undertake to say that all the ages of eternity would be only prolongation of depravity. "But," says some one, "in the next life the evil surroundings will be withdrawn and good influences will be substituted, and hence, expurgation, sublimity, glorification." But you must remember that the righteous, all their sins forgiven, pass right up into a beatific state, and then having passed up into the beatific state, not needing any other 'chance, that will leave all those who have never been forgiven, and who were impenitent, alone — alone! and where are the salvable influences to come from? Can it be expected that Dr. Duff, who spent his whole life in pointing the Hindoos to heaven, and Dr. Abeel, who spent his life in evangelizing China, and that Juclson, who spent his life in preaching the Gospel to Burmah— can it be expected that they will be sent down from some celestial Missionary Society to educate and to save those who wasted their earthly existence? No. We are told distinctly that all missionary and evangelistic influences will be ended forever and the good having passed up to their beatific state, all the morally bankrupt will be together, and where are the salvable influences to come from? Will a specked or bad apple put in a barrel of diseased apples make the other apples good? Will one who is down be able to lift others up? Will those who have miserably failed in the business of this life be able to pay the debts of other spiritual insolvents? Will a million wrongs make one right? Poneropolis was the city where King Rufus of Thracia, put all bad people of his kingdom, and whenever there were iniquitous people found in any part of the land they were all sent to Poneropolis. It was the great capital of wickedness. Suppose a man or a woman had opened a primary school in Poneropolis, would the parents of other cities have sent their children there to be educated and reformed * * * Again; I wish you further to notice that another chance in another world means the ruin of this. Now, suppose a wicked man is assured that after a lifetime of wickedness, he can fix it all right up in the future. That would be the demoralization of society, that would be the demolition of the human race. There are men who are now kept on the limits of sin by their fear. The fear that if we are bad and unforgiven here it -will not be well with us in the next existence, is the chief influence that keeps civilization from rushing back into semi-barbarism, and keeps semi-barbarism from rushing back into 'midnight savagery, and keeps midnight savagery from rushing back into ex- limits of sin, But this idea coming into his soul, this idea pf another chance, he says, "Go to, now; I'll get out of this world all there is In it." Come gluttony and revenge and uncleariness and all sensualities, and wait upon me, It may abbreviate my earthly life by dissoluteness, but that will only give me heavenly Indulgence on a larger scale In a shorter length of time, I will overtake the righteous before long, J wi}l only come In. heaven a little late, and I will be a little more fortunate tha,n those who have behaved themselves on earth and went straight to the bosom p| Qod, fceeaase I will gee more and have wider excursion, and I will come into heaven via Gehenna, via Sneol!" flear- Reg4er3l Another chance in tne w QrW W» 08 free license and the sf this.

If these men who ate Impenitent and who are wicked felt there were two trials, and the first was of no very great importance, and the second trial was the- one of vast and infinite importance} all the preparations for eternity would be post-mortem^ post-funeral, post*, sepulchral, and this world would 1)8 jerked off Into impenitencjr and god-* lessness. Another chance in another world means the domilitlon of this world. * * * A dream, 1 am in the burnished judgment hall oft the last day. the, great white throne is lifted, but thn Judge has not yet taken it. While We are waiting for his arrival I hear the immortals in conversation. "What are you waiting for?" says a soul that Went up from Madagascar to a soul that went up from America, The latter responds: "I was in America forty years ago, and I heard tbe Gospel preached, and I had plenty of Bibles in my house, and from the time that I knelt at my moth-' er's knee in prayer until my last hour, I had great opportunities; but I did not improve them, and I am here today waiting for another chance.", "Strange, strange," says the soul just come up from Madagascar. "Strange; why I never heard the Gospel call but once in all my life, and I accepted it, and I don't want another chance." "What are you waiting for?" says one who on earth had very feeble intellect to one who had great brain and whose voice was silvery, and who had scep- tres of power. The latter replies: "I had great power on earth, I must admltj and I mastered languages and I mastered libraries, and colleges conferred upon me learned titles, and my name was a synonym for eloquence and power; but somehow I neglected the matters of my soul, and I must con^ fess to you I am here to-day -waiting for, another chance." Now, the ground trembles with the advancing chariot; The great folding doors of the bui-< nished hall of judgment are throwij open. "Stand back," cry the usher?.| "and let the Judge of quick and dead pass through." He takes the throne'. He looks off upon the throngs of nations come to the last judgment, coma to the only judgment, and one ftasl) from the throne reveals each man's history to himself, and reveals it to al! the others. And then the Judge says^ "Divide!" and the burnished walls echo it, "Divide!" and the guides angelic answer, "Divide!" and the immortals are rushing this way and that, until there is an aisle between them, a great aisle; and then a vacuum, widening, an<j widening and widening, until the Judg« looks to one side of that vacuum, and addresses the throng, and says: "Le| him that is righteous be righteous still' and let him that Is holy be holy still.'.' And then, turning to the throng on th«, other side of the vacuum, he says' "Let him that is unjust be unjust still and let him that is filthy be filthy still.' And then he stretches out both hands one toward the throng on each side o! the vacuum, and says: "If the tree fa!' toward the south, or toward the north in the place where the tree falleth there it shall be!" And then I heai something jar with a great sound; it i< the closing of the Book of Judgment The Judge ascends the stairs behind th( throne. The Hall of the last Assize ii cleared and shut. The High Court o Eternity adjourned forever. The Point ot View. This world is as you see it—that is, you may see what you will, Weai 'green glasses, and it Is a green worU to you.
