The historj" of a quarter acre lot in Chicago reads like a romance. In 1830, when the population of the city numbered fifty souls, this quarter acre of raw prairie was worth §20. At fl.50 per day a man could have earned in 13 1-2 days enough to buy it outright. To-day it is worth $1,250,000. As the report of the Illinois Bureau, of Statistics puts it: Six hundred average Illinois farms would not now' exchange for that quarter acre of rare prairie land, and nearly 3,000 years of the labor of one man would be required to buy it. If 500 years before the Christian era some man had obtained .employment at the equivalent of one dollar and fifty cents a day, had, like some wandering Jew,been preserved through all the vicissitudes of. the centuries, had been miraculously sustained without expense for any of the necessaries or luxuries of life, had done his work regularly from that day to this 300 days in the year without losing a day, and had hoarded all his wages,; his savings would not yet be enough to buy this quarter acre of prairie land at the mouth of the Chicago River. ^jwe&tf tfca.t the coast ie ejeap, We spy Caroparative Mortality of tlie World* An eminent Italian statistician has been making inquiries into the comparative mortality of the countries of the world, and he has arrived at some interesting conclusions. The death rate per 1,000 inhabitants in 1892-94 was as follows: Australia, 13.2; Sweden, 17.2; England, 18,3; Scotland, 18.4; Ireland, 18.5; Holland, 19.C; Switzerland, 20.1; Belgium, 20.2; France, 22.3; Germany, 23.7; Italy, 25.7; Austria, 27.9; Hungary, 33,3, All thes countries except France and Ireland have reduced their death rate during the last twenty years. In Ireland it has increased, and in has remained stationary. In France, :oo, the death rate of persons in tae prime of life is higher than in most other countries, and shows no tendency to decrease. In England the mortality is feeble in childhood and youth, relatively strong in the prime of life and old age, but is gradually diminishing. FaUdy'a Standpoint. An Irishman whose chief occupatiou in life has been rock blasting obtained, a position on a farm, and was one day seated outsit vigorously churning butter with an ol4 fashioned churn- T-WO former companions passing by caught sight of him, ana, after stopping to contemplate the situation a. wo one 9t t he w aml4e»ly exclaimed: jn§ copshinje, T-erreace, BGIDDO is the name of a iaomi- taia tbat looks down apon Bsdrae- loa, tbe greatest battle Seld tbat tbe world has erref Seen. There Barak foaeai tbe Canaan- ftt lies: {here Gideon *=$e£ foagb! tbe Midiaa- ites; there Josiah tbe laradlng Egyptians. Tbe region stands for battle, and tbe ArsnagwJdoa of my test borrows its came from it, and is aere used, not geographically, bat aguratirely, while settles forta the idea that there is to be a world's closing battle, tie greatest if all feaJtifs. compared wiih which the | eocSicis of tbrs ceatary and aJl other { centuries were insfgaiScant, becaase * of the greater number of combatants i engaged, the .greater victory and the i greater defeat. The exact date of that baisle we do not krow, and the exact locality is ancertain. It may be in Asia, Eorope, Africa or America, but the fact tbat sach a battle will take place is as certain as God's eternal truth. When I use the saperJative degree in regard to that coming conflict, I do not forget that there have been wars all along on stupendous scale. As when at Marathon Miltiades brought on his men, not in ordinary march, but in full ran, upon the horsemen of Persia, and the black archers of Ethiopia, and scattered them, and crying, "Bring fire' Bring fire!" set into flame the ships of the invaders. As when Pizarro overcame Peru. As when Philip the Second triumphed over Portugal. As when the Huns met the Goths. As when three hundred Spartans sacrificed themsejves at Thermopylae. As when the Carthaginians took Agrigentum. As when Alexander headed the Macedonian phalanx. As when Hannibal invaded Italy. Battle of Hastings! Battle of Valmy! Battle of Pultowa! BatUe of Arbela! Battle of Tours! Battle of Borodino! Battle of Lucknow! Battle of Solferino! Battle of Fontenoy, where 100,000 were slain! Battle of Chalons, where 300,000 were massacred! Battle of Herat, where Genghis Khan destroyed 1,600,000 lives! Battle of Xeishar, where 1,747,000 went down to death! 1,810,000 slain at Troy! And American battles, too near us now to allow us to appreciate their awful grandeur and significance, except you who were there, facing the North or facing the South! But all the battles I have named put together will not equal in numbers enlisted, or fierceness, or grandeur, or triumph, or rout, the coming Armageddon contest. Whether it jshall be fought with printers' type or 'keen steel, whether by brain or muscle, whether by pen or carbine, whether by booming cannon or thunders of Christian eloquence, I do not know, and you may take what I say as figurative or literal, but take as certain what St. John, in his vision on the rocks of the Grecian archipelago, is pleased to call "Armageddon." My sermon will first mention the regiments tbat will be engaged in the conflict; then will say something of the commanders on both sides; and then speak of 'the battle itself and the tremendous issues. -Beginning with those who will fight on the wrong side, I first mention the regiments Diabolic. In this very chapter from which my text is taken we are told that the spirits of devils will be there. How many millions of them no one can tell, for the statistics of the satanic dominions have never been reported and the roll of that host has never on earth been called; but from the direful, and continental, and planetary work they have already done, and the fact that every man and woman and child on earth has a tempter, there must be at least sixteen hundred millions of evil spirits familiar with our world. Perhaps as many more are engaged on especial enterprises of abomination among the nations and empires of the earth. Beside that there must be an inconceivable number of. inhabitants in realms pandemoniac, staying there to keep the great capitals of sin going from age to age. Many of them once lived in heaven, but engaging in conspiracy to put Satan on the throne, they were hurled out and down, and they are now among the worst thugs of the universe. Having been in three worlds—heaven, earth and hell—they have all the advantages of great experience, Their power, their speed, their cunning, their ho3tillty wonderful beyond ail statement! In the Armageddon they will, I doubt not, be present jn full array. They will have no reserve corps, but all will be at the front. There will not only be soldiers in that Battle who, can be seen and aimed at, but tro'ope intangible and without corporeJty.'Tind weapons may strike eief r tbrpugh them giyt»g<);b.em jjurt, with what of defiance will they eJlwb up the ladders gj £re and lea,p from the battlements Qf asbestps Into the last r <?agy?aJgB of hell! jpau), the bravest c-f •""" ~" {mjres4jed. with'their ffllght evil wfe r §B h'e' 9. an,4 | wrestle ^QkWfeaJajftsgJ ^r^kjdjahoj, £t)M||f jAWtt l« r ,.^I§4jG«i-.-*v' ' j^^waty &vB&*is of millioES of i&eir i»- Tbey will HSOTS into tbe ranks wbat tbe bible calls tbe "Soteg ol o^BHkard."

If now. sceordi&g to a seSeatiSS in England. tbe?e are afty thousand deaths aaaaally from strong drink, and ia tbe Ualted States, according to aaotber estimate, ninety-eight thousand dealbs annually from strong drink, wbat an army of lirlae drunkards tbat implies, coining up from tbe whole earth to take tbeir places ia the last battle, especially as the eTil increases and the niJiioas now staggering on tbelf way may be joined by other millions of te- inforeesaenls; brigade after brigade, wsJb drunkards' bones dramming on the bead of beer barrels tbe dead march of souls. These millions of Tictlms of alcohol joined by the millions of victims of arrack. Use spirituous liojuor of China, end India, and Arabia, and Egypt, and Ceyloa, and Slam! Other regiments wao will march into ihe fight on the wrong side will be the regiments Infidel. God gave but one revelation to the human race, ana these men have been trying to destroy it- Many of the books, magazines, and newspapers, through perpetual scoff at Christianity, and some of the universities, have become recruiting agencies ! for those regiments. The greatest brig- ! adier of all those regiments, Voltaire, who closed his 3ife o! assault upon Christianity by writing, "Happiness is a dream, and only pain is real. I have thought so for eighty-four years, aad I know no better plan than to resign myself to the inevitable and to reflect thai flies are born to be devoured by spiders and man to be consumed by care. I wish I had never been born." Oh, the God-forsaken regiments of infidels, who after having spent their life in antagonizing the only influence that could make the earth better, gather with their low wit and their vile sneer and their learned idiocy and their horrible blasphemy to take part against God and righteousness in the great Armageddon! Other regiments who will march in on the wrong side in the battle will be the regiments Mohammedan. At the present time there are about one hundred and seventy-five million Moslems. Their plain mission is to kill Christians, demean womanhood, and take possession of the earth in the interest of ignorance, superstition, and moral filth. The massacre of fifty thousand Armenians in the last two or three years is only one chapter in their effort to devastate the earth of everything but themselves. So determined are they in their bad work that all the nations of the earth put together dare not say to them, "Stop! or we will make you stop!" My hope is that long before that last battle of which I speak the Turkish government, and .with it Mohammedanism, may be wiped out of existence. * » * First of all, I mention the regiments Angelic! Alas! that the subject of demonology seems better understood than the subject of angelology. But the glorious spirits around the throne and all the bright immortals that fill the galleries and levels of the universe are to take part in that last great fight, and the regiments angelic are the ctf.7 regiments capable of meeting the regiments plutonic. To show you something of an angel's power, I ask you to consider that just one of them slew one hundred and eighty-five thousand of Sennacherib's hosts in a night, and it is not a tough arithmetical question to solve, if one angel can slay one hundred and eighty-five thousand troops in a night, how many can five hundred millions of them slay? The old Book says that "They excel in strength." It is not a celestial mob, but a disciplined host, and they know their rank. Cherubim, seraphim, thrones, principalities, and powers! And the leader of these regiments is Michael the Archangel! David saw just one group of angels sweep past, and they were twenty thousand charioted. Paul, who in the Ga- malian college had his faculties so wonderfully developed, confesses his incapacity to count them by saying, "Ye are come to Mount Zion and an innumerable company of angels." If each soul on earth has a guardian angel, then there must be sixteen hundred million angels on earth today. Besides that, heaven, must be full of angels, those who stay there; not only the twelve angels who, we are tola, guard the twelve gates, but those angels who help In the worship, and go on mission from mansion to mansion, and help to build the -hozannas and enthrone the hallelujahs and roll the doxologies of the service that never ends. But they all, If required, will be In the last fight between holiness and sin, Heaven could afford to adjourn just one day, and empty all its temples, and mansions, and palaces, ana boulevards into that one battle. I think all the angels of God will join In it. The one tbat stood with sword of flame at the gate of paj-adise. The one that pointed Hagar to the fountain in the wilderness. The next reglmjpt£ tbat I see march ing into the fight will be the regiments Ecclesiastic. According to the last account, and practically only in tbe beginning of the great gospel movement which proposes to take the whole earth fQr Ood, there ar§ four jn,illi six hundred thousand i\fethodist8,,three million seven hundred and twenty*fj thousand Baptists, one willlpn two hundred and eighty thousand three hundred anj thirty*tbree j>reshyte» riane, one miiijpn two hundred and, thirty thousand, kuther&us, ana si$ hundred m&Mte ttowa^a SpfeMsepa* Jiaus, B,u.t thj pregent stetieUc^ of come into tbat bttile on tie rigbt side. Tie winds! God showed *bat he wold do witS them waea the splintered IBaiber* of tbe ships of tbe Spanish Armada were cbrewn on tb« rock* oi Scotland. Norway and tbe Hebrides. Tbe watears! H* sbowed wbat he conld do witb them wben he pat tbe whole earth under them, leaving it subaque- ous *ae hundred aad fifty days. The earthquakes! He showed what be could do with them when he let Caracas drop Into the open mouth of horror and the islands of tbe sea went into entombment. The lightnings! He showed wbat be coald do with them when he wrapped Mount Sinai in flame, and we have alt seen their Bashing lanterns moving with the chariots of the mid* night hurricane. All the regiments elemental will come in on oar side in the great Armageddon. Come and let as mount and ride along the line, and review the troops of Emanael, and find that the regiments terrestrial and celestial that come into that battle on the right side are, as compared with those on the wrong side, two to one, a hundred to one, a thousand to one. Bat who is the commander-in-ehief on this side? Splendid armies have been rained, caught in traps, flung over precipices, aad annihilated through the incompetence or treachery of their general. Who commands on our side? Jehovah-Jireh! so-called in one place. "Captain of Salvation," so-called in another place. King of Kings. Lord of Lords. Conqueror of Conquerors! His eye omniscient. His arm omnipotent He will take the lead. But do not let us shout until after we have seen the two armies clash in the last struggle. Oh, my soul'. The battle of all time and ail eternity opens. "Forward!" "Forward!" is the command on both sides given. The long lines of both armies waver, and swing to and fro. Swords of truth against engines infernal. Black horse cavalry of perdition against white horse cavalry of heaven. The redemption of this world and the honor of the throne of God to vindicate, how tremendous is the battle! The army of righteousness Eeems giving way; but no! It is only a part of the maneuvre of the infinite fight. It is a deploy of the host celestial. What a meeting in this field of splendor and wrath, of the angelic and of the diabolic, of hosanna and blasphemy, of song and curse, of the divine and the satanic. The thunderbolts of the Almighty burst and blaze upon the foe. Boom! Boom! By the torches of lightning that illuminate the scene I see that the crisis of the Armageddon has come. It is the turning point of this last battle. The next moment will decide all. Aye! the forces of Apollyon are breaking ranks. See! See! They fly. Some on foot, some on wing; they fly. Back over the battlements of perdition they go down with infinite crash, all the regiments diabolic! * * * The prophesied Amageddon of the text has been fought, and Christ and his followers have won the day. - The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and his Christ. All the Christian workers of our time, you, my hearers, and you, my readers, and all the Christian workers of all the ages, have helped on the magnificent result, and the victory is ours as much as theirs. This moment inviting all outsiders, through the ransomed blood of the everlasting Covenant, to get into the ranks of the Conquerors, and under the banner of our Leader, I shall not close the service with prayer, as we usually do, but immediately give out the Moravian hymn by James Montgomery, appropriate when written in 1819, but more appropriate in 1896, and ask you, with full voices, as well as with grateful hearte to chant it. See Jehovah's banner furl'd, Sheathed his sword: He speaks—'tis done' And the kingdoms of this world Are the kingdoms of his Son. after, ail 4° n «4he Uje geets, A Careful Father. Judge Catron is the representative in congress of the Territory of New Mexico, and is also the proud father of two boys. As a delegate in congress it is his privilege to nominate a cadel to West Point and one to Annapolis. Realizing that it is "his duty to provide for his sons in a paternal manner. Judge Catron appointed one of them to the military academy. In order to guard against mishaps, and to make it as certain as such things can be that the nation might not be deprived o] the valuable services of the Catron boys, the father also appointed each as the alternate of the other; so that if the nominee to West Point failed o| admission there would be another chance for a Catron boy there; and i| the lad selected for Annapolis should fail at the naval academy he might have a chance at West Point if h|g brother did not get in. The examina> tions at Annapolis are over and one oj the young Mr. Catrons was successful. The West Point nominee will not know his-fate until March, and if he fails then, there will be woe Jn the Catron household because there is no other boy to nominate, Instances are not scarce where a member of congress has nomieated his son to one of these academies, but this is the first on ree qrd where a member has had the temerity to reach for both appointments. As ?Jew Mexico has but one represen tative, Judp Catron has pornered the visible supply of cadet nomJnations for the entire territory.—PJttsburg Ojjr0»» iole fe^lTj ^ 0 s .$## .«« aeflomina.tlpns haye of an jBpp'mug-to? th Mr< -*'-••-" J —M»i^v , Sfttt, U Wh>» ' "A - Ifeal £y> N^J^WkK*?
