The result of the recent census show* that during the last Jive years the population han increased somewhat lew* rapidly rlian it did in the previous teii—1SR1-1891. Tin: number of people turned out to he some 35.000 below the etuimaie formed on the basis of 1801. The difference is small but important, SIA it shows that the previous fall in tlie rate of increase is maintained. The ixipiilation is growing at a less and less rapid pace At the, beginning of the century it tiKc.-d to increa«'} by more than 20 pur cent iu the ten y-.-arB between •successive- censuses; in 1881-185)1 thai rate j hail fallen to 10.4 per cent, the lowest ' it is still loss. This movement is not part of a general decline; it is peculiar to London, and seems to indicate that the lingo overgrowth of the metropolis has begun to cure Itself. No to\vu can go on growing indefinitely, and even London— monstrous as it is—lias not fulfilled tlie expectations of earlier statisticians. Two hundred years ago it appeared to bo growing NO fast that Sir William I'elry, one? of the earliest pioneers in j (I'.'inograpliical research, reckoned Unit ' by 18-10 tho population would reach 10,000,000, supposing it to continue at tlie same rate. lie thought, however, that a natural limit would be readied be fore then, find pluc?il it: in'the year 18()(i, by which time he calculated Ix>n- odn would contain something over 5,000,000 people, and the rest of England only 4,500,000. Ho was vory nearly right about the total, which actually was about !),000,00(), but London only accounted for one of them. Since- ihon it has nearly reached its maximum, which, curiously enough, seems likely to prove a real natural limit. For tho four years 1871-1S74-, the average birth rate was II5.U; 'for Hie four years, 1891-lHiM, it was only ;>0,0. There lias been a gradual juicl almost continuous fall from year to year, which has not been counterbalanced by Hie sirmi;ianeous but slighter fall in tho death rite from U'^.7 to I'.U). Fewer people proportion to tho population, bill still fewer nro born, Tills is explained by tho increasing disinclination to nrii'i'.v.

Mull. A canny Scotch doctor has hit upon an expeditious way "of overcoming tlie difficulties .which ariso out of the scattering of his practice over u lurge nreu. lie uses carrier pigeons to assist him iu tho daily routine of.' his work. When, for pxrimplc, ho is culled upon to visil u patient far distant from his homo, he takes with him u number of ills stock of eurrliu* pigeons. On reaching an urgent case, as soon as lie has proscribed, ho forwards tho prescription by means of n pigeon, When tho bird reaches Jii« house, a servant carefully oxtractM tho messiirW from under its wing, and hands it to the doctor's dispenser, who makes up tho prescription and dispatches tho mcdlcino to his patient, Another convenient urrjmgo- itu'iit resorted to by tills enterprising practitioner is to leave 0410 of the pigeons at tho house of u distant patient, whose ciise-muy ut BOJUO tliuo tjenuuul his instant attention.

As the i <* alert Sight not clear, fiar not so After a while we take a staff. puts upon it agates and diagrams, 53 that the scholar inay not only get his lesson through the ear, but also through the eye, so God takes a£» the truths of his Bible, and draws them out in diagram on the natural world. Champdllion, the famous Frenchman, went down into Egypt to study the hieroglyphics on monuments and temples. After much labor he deciphered them, and announced to the learned world the remit of his investigations. The wisdom, goodness, and power of God are written in hieroglyphics all over the earth and ail over the heaven. God grant that we may have understanding enough to decipher them! There arc scriptural paEeages, like my text, which need to be studied in the very presence of the natural world. Hahakkuk says, "Thou makest my feet like hind's feet;" a passage which means nothing save to the man that knows that the feet of the red deer, or hind, are peculiarly constructed, so that they can walk among slippery rocks without falling. Knowing that fact, we understand that, when Habakkuk Bays, "Thou makest my'feet like hind's feet," he sets forth that the Christian can walk amid the most dangerous and slippery places without falling. In Lamentations we read that "Ths daughter of my people is cruel, like the ostriches ot the wilderness;" a passage that has no meaning save to the man who knows that the ostrich leaves its egg in the sand to be hatched out by the sun, and that the young ostrich goes forth unattended by any maternal kindness. Knowing this, the passage is significant—"The daughter of my people is cruel, like the ostriches of the wilderness." Those know hut little o£ the meaning of the natural world, who have looked at it through the eyes of others, and from book or canvas taken their impression. There are some faces so mobile that photographers cannot take them; and the face of nature hae such a flush, and sparkle, and life, that no human description can gather them. No one knows the pathos of a bird's voice unless he has sat at summer evening-tide at the edge of a wood, and listened to the cry of the whip-poor- will. There is today more glory in one branch of sumach than a painter could put on a whole forest of maples. God hath struck into the autumnal leaf a glance that none see but those who come face to face—the mountain looking upon the man, and the man looking upon the ^mountain. For several autumns I have made a tour to the far west, and one autumn, about this time, saw that which I shall never forget. I have seen the autumnal sketches of Cropsey and other skilful pencils, but that week I saw a pageant tv/o thousand miles long. Let artists stand back when God stretches his canvas! A grander spectacle was never kindled before mortal eyes. Along by the rivers, and up and down the sides of the, great hills, aud by the banks of the lakes, .there was an indescribable mingling of gold, and orange, and crimson, and saffron, now sobering into drab and maroon, now flaming into solforino and scarlet. Here and there the trees looked as 1£ just their tips had blossomed into fire. In the morning light the forests seemed as if they had been transfigured, and in the evening hour they looked as if the stm- eet had burst and dropped upon the leaves. In .more sequestered spots, whore the frosts had been hindered in their work, we saw the first kindling o£ the flames of color in a lowly sprig; then they rushed up from branch to branch, until the glory of the Lord submerged the forest, Here you would flncl a tree just making up itg miml to change, and there one looked,as if, wounded at every pore, it stood bathed }n carnage. Along the banks of Lake Huron there were hills over which there seemed pouring cataracts of fire, tossed up ancl down, a,nd every whither by the rocks. Through some of the ravines we saw occasionally a foaming stream, as though it were rushing to put out 1 the conflagration. If at one end ot the ^YOods a commanding tree would set uj» 'its crimson' banner, the whole forest prepared to follow, n Ggd'8 urn of colors were n,ot infinite; one swamp that I saw ajpng the Maumee would have exhausted Jt forever. It seemed as if the sea, of divine glory had 4aehe<J Its surf to, the .tip top oif the dripplns down to the. lowest le,af a,nil this only In, }t a veto s>l sadness. | find that I ftftve two's.Wags ^9, thjs hajP^ft string of Of jpy Jnjnjje, •, ] to spectacles. Instead of bounding in* j to the vehicle, we are •srilllng to be i helped in. At last the octogenarian i falls. Forty years of decaying. No sudden change. Ko fierce cannonading of the batteries of life; but a fading away—slowly—gradually. As the leaf! As the leaf! Again: Like the leaf we fade, to make room for others; Next year's forests will be as grandly foliaged as this. There are other generations of oak leaves to take the place of those which this autumn perish. Next May the cradle of the wind will rock the young buds.. The woods will be all a-aum with the chorus of leafy voices. If the tree in front of your house, like Elijah, takes a chariot of Sre, its mantle -will fall upon Elisha. If, in the blast of these autumnal batteries, so many ranks fall, there are reserve forces to take their place to defend the fortress of the hills. The beaters of gold leaf will have more gold leaf to beat. The crown that drops today from the head of the oak will be picked up and handed down for other kings to wear. Let the blasts come. They only make room for other life. So, when we go, others take our spheres. We do not grudge the future generations their places. We will have had our good time. Let them come on and have their good time. There is no sighing among these leaves today, because other leaves are to follow them. After a lifetime of preaching, doctoring, selling, sewing, or digging, let us cheerfully give way for those who come in to do the preaching, doctoring, selling, sewing and digging. God grant that their life may be brighter than ours has been! As we get older, do not let us be affronted if young men and women crowd us a little. We will have had our day and we must let them have theirs. When our voices get cracked, let us not snarl at those who can warbie. When our knees are stiffened, Jet us have patience with those who go fleet as the deer. Because our leaf is fading, do not let us despise the unfrosted. Autumn must not envy the spring. Old men must be patient with boys. Dr. Guthrie stood up in Scotland and said, "You need not think I am old because my hair is white; I never was so young as I am now." I look back to my childhood days, and remember when, in winter nights, in the sitting-room, the children played, the blithest and the gayest of all the company were father and mother. Although reaching fourscore years ol age, they never got old, * » » Again: As with the leaves, we fade and fall amid myriads of others. One cannot count the number of plumes which these frosts are plucking from the hills. They will strew all the etreams; they will drift into the caverns; they will soften the wild beast's lair, and fill the eagle's eyrie. All the aisles of the forest will be covered with their carpet, and the steps of the hills glow with a wealth of color ancl shape that will defy the looms of Axminster. What urn could hold the ashes of all these dead leaves? Who could count, the hosts that burn on this funeral pyre of the mountains? So we die In concert. The clock that strikes the hour of our going will sound the going of many thousands. •Keeping step with the feet of those who carry us out will be the tramp of hundreds doing the same errand. Between fifty and seventy people every day lie clown in Greenwood. That place has over two hundred thousand of the dead. I said to the man at the gate, "Then if there are so many here, you must have the largest cemetery." He said there were two Roman Catholic cemeteries in the city, each, of which hacl more than Jhis, We are al| dying. London and Pekin are not the gr^at cities of the world. The grave is the great city, It hath mightier population, longer streets, brighter lights, thicker darknesses, Caesar is there, and all his subjects. Nero is there, and all his victims, City of kings and paupers! It has swallowed up in its immigrations Thebes, and Tyre ancl Babylpn, and will swallow all our cities. 'Yet, City of Silence, No voice. No hoof, No wheel. No clash. No smiting of hammer. No clack of flying loom. No jar. No whisper. Great City of Sijence. Of all its raijlion million hands, not one of lifted, Of all its million niiil- i9n eyes, not one of them sparkles, Of all ice mijjion million hearts, not one pulsates, The living are in small minority, Again: 4s with variety of appear* an ce the leaves depart, so do we, You haye nQtiQec]' that acme trees, jat the first touch, pf the. fspst, )g$e an their beauty; tjjey ,stw];' wj|h,ered, an,<J un- aod ragged, waling fp»' 'the L •"'"" '? 4fiv0 tjiejn &tq tU.e, Shining s,t neo,ncjay n.e beauty, Rsgg^i W'VqfrffVW |Cllfc |p/i«y 18-- - 3 to Amg-«!}.9Q>»}l, «UT«, ^e^'no. - ft^sMra folifiged with eppofttmStleS; tot 5ctff- ber came, and their glwy went F-rcJfct- «d!

So men seem to get along without religion, amid the annoyances and vexations ot life that hip them slightly here and nip them there. Bat after awhile death comes. It is a black frost, and all is ended. * * * Why go to the deathbed of distinguished men, when there is hardly a bouse on this street but from it a Christian has departed? When four baby died there were enough angels itt the room to have chanted a coronation. When your father died you sat watch^ ing, and aftet awhile felt of his wrist, and then put your hand under his aritt to see if there were any warmth left, and .placed the mirror to the motith to see if there were any sign of breathing; and when all was over, you thought how grandly he slept—a giant resting after a battle. Oh! there are many Christian death-beds. The chariots of God, come to take his children home, are speeding every-whitber. This one halts at the gate of the alms- bouse; that one at the gate of princes. The shout of captives breaking their chains comes on the morning air. The heavens ring again and again with the coronation. The twelve gates of heaven are crowded with the ascending righteous. I see the accumulated glories of a thousand Christian death-beds— an autumnal forest illumined by an autumnal sunset! They died not in shame, but in triumph! As the leaf! As the leaf! Lastly: As the leaves fade and fall only to rise, so do we. All this golden shower of the woods is making the ground richer, and in the juice, and sap, and life of the tree the leaves will come up again. Next Hay the south wind will blow the resurrection trumpet, and they will rise. So we fall in the dust only to rise again. "The hour is coming when all who are in their graves shall hear his voice and come forth." It would be a horrible consideration to think that our bodies were always to lie in the ground. However beautiful the flowers you plant there, we do not want to make our everlasting residence in such a place. * * * Crossing the Atlantic the ship may founder, and our bodies be eaten by the sharks; but God tameth leviathan, aud we shall come again. In awful explosion of factory boiler our bodies may be shattered into a hundred fragments in the air; but God watches the disaster, and we shall come again. He will drag the deep, and ransack the tomb, and upturn the wilderness, and torture the mountain, but he will find us, ami fetch us out and up to judgment and to victory. We shall come up with perfect eye, with perfect hand, with perfect foot, and with perfect body. All our weaknesses left behind. We fall, but we rise; we die, but we live again! We moulder away, but we come to higher unfolding! As the leaf) As the leaf! fiininco In the Sunday School. The Sunday school needed money, and Mr. Smart, the superintendent, had a new way of getting it. He proposed giving each boy half a crown. -At the end of the month the principal, together with what It earned, was to be returned to him. • Tbe scheme was good,, but it didn't work quite as Mr. Smart had anticipated. The fourth Sunday found the superintendent ready to audit the profit and loss accounts and he commenced with Johnnie's class. "How have yon clone, Johnnie?" "My half crown has earned another one," said Johnnie, with an air of one having an option on a halo. "Good!" said tho superintendent, "Not only is Johnnie a good boy in helping the school, but he shows business talent. Doubling one's money In a single month requires no common ability. Who can tell but what we have another budding Croesus among us? Johnnie, you have done well. And now, Thomas, how much has your half crown earned?" "Lost it," said Thomas. "What! Not only failed to earn anything, but actually lost!" said Mr, Smart, "How was that?" "I tossed with Johnnie," was tho re^ •ply, "and he won."—London Tid-Bits. Where's tho Fanner's 1'roflt?
