iNTERNAtlONAL PHfcSS ASSOCIAtlON. ,, That same night the clerk entered f&pott ft hout of drunkenness SO con- 'sistent as to surprise even his intimate acquaintances. He was speedily ejected ffom the boarding-house; deposited his portmanteau with a pel-feet stranger, [ wh6 did hot even catch his name; wan| dered he knew n6t where, and was at hast hove-to, all standing, in a hospital iat Sacramento. There, under the impenetrable alias of the number of his •bed, the crapulous being lay for some more days unconscious of all things, attd of one thing in particular! that the .'.police were alter him. Two months bad come and gone before the convalescent in the Sacramento hospital was ['identified with Kirkman, the abscond- fing San Francisco clerk; even then, 11 ere must elapse nearly a fortnight ore till the perfect stranger could be anted up, the portmanteau recovered, aid John's letter carried at lengthL to is destination, tho seal ntlU unbroken, the Inclosure still intact. i. Meanwhile, Joan had gone upon ma dolidaya without a word, which was ir- •egular; and there had disappeared ith him a certain sum of money, hich was out of all bounds of pallta- lon. But he was known to be careless, «ind believed to be honest; the manager besides had a regard for him; and lit,le was said, although something was 10 doubt thought, until the fortnight vas finally at an end, and the time had jome for John to reappear. Then indeed, the affair began to look back; and when inquiries were made, and the Gloty whose name had echoed eihce in the saddest corner of his memory; and the gutters where he had learned to slide, and the shop where he had trod, ahd the railings In which he had rattled his clachatt as he went to school :,an"d all those thousand and one nameless particulars, whicih the eye sees without noting, which the memory keeps indeed yet without knowing, and which, taken one with another, bttlld Up for us the aspect of the place that we call home; all these besieged him, as he went, with both delight and sadness. His first visit was for Houston, who had a house on Regent's Torrace, kept for him in old days by an aunt. The door was opened (to his surprise) upon the chain, and a voice asked him from within what he wanted. "1 want Mr. Houston—Mr. Alan Houston," said he. "And who are ye?" said the voice. This is mostextraordinary ."thought tnd fee-sldli, Is Mfe.tfa-s 8n th« way 1 home 1 , it hffiffy ttatt* afld Be gate wa? ttf the ifnftuto at nature.

"1 see," said Bsatson. "Well 1 we'll see something of you now yott'rd here." "Oh, 1 gtiess so," said John, a little frozen. "Well, ta-ta," concluded Beatson, and he shook hands again and wont, This was a cruel first experience. It Was idle to blink facts; here was John ON PRACTICAL RELIGION, Washington, Dec. 20.-^his subject of Dr. Talmage exits through the conventionalities, and spares nothing of that make-believe religion which is all •talk and no practice.

L 'he telegraph was set In motion; and Che correspondent of the bank in Edinburgh, for which place it was under- Cd that John had armed himself .With extensive credits, was warned to ^communicate with the police. I Now this correspondent was a friend [of Mr. Nicholson's; he was veil ac- huainted with the tale of John's calamitous disappearance from Edinburgh; and putting one thing with another, hasted with the first word of this scandal not to the police, but to his friend The old gentleman had long regarded his sou as one dead; John's place had been taken, the memory of his faults had already fallen to be one of those old aches, which' awaken again indeed occasion, but which we can a - B vanquish by an effort of the will; to have the long lost resuscitated in a fresh disgrace was doubly b tter. "Macewen," said the old man, 'his must be hushed up, if possible. If I "ive you a check for the sum, about which they are certain, could you take it on yourself to let the matter rest? "I.will," said Macewen. "I will take the risk of it." • -you understand," resumed Nicholson, speaking precisely, but with ashen lips. "I do this for my family, no for that unhappy young man. ii u should turn out that these suspicions correct and he has embezzled large upon John; and then aloud he told his name. "Not young Mr. John?" cried the voice, with a sudden increase of Scotch accent, testifying to a friendlier feeling. "The very same," said John. And the old butler removed his defenses, remarking only, "I thought ye were that man." But his master was not there; he was staying, it appeared, at the house in Murrayfield; and though the butler would have been glad enough to have taken his place and given all the news of the family, John, struck .with a little chill, was eager to be gone. Only, tho door was scarce closed again, before he regretted that he had not asked about "that man." He was to pay no more visits till he had seen his father and made all well at home; Alan had been the only possible exception, and John had not time to go as far as Murrayfield. But here he was on Regent's Terrace; there was nothing to prevent him going round the end of the hill, and looking from without on the Mackenzies' house. As he went, he recollected that Flora must now be a woman of near his own age, and it was within the bounds of possibility that she was married; but this dishonorable doubt he dammed down. There was the house, sure enough; but the door was of another color, and what was this—two door plates? He drew nearer; the top one bore, with dignified simplicity, the words, "Mr. Proudfoot;" the lower one was more explicit, and informed the passer-by that here was likewise the abode of "Mr. J. A. and many another inestimable bond Of friendship; ami his hurt surprise grew — 0 deeper. Well, after all. it was only on upon the fact that they are all right a man's own family tlmt he csuld count; Inside, while their conduct is wrong blood was thicker than water, he re- outside. Their religion, for the most membered; and the net result of this part, is made up of talk—vigorous talk, encounter was to bring him to the door- fluent talk, boastful talk, perpetual step of his father's house, with tenderer talk; They will entertain you by tne hour in telling you how good you are. They come up to such a higher life that they have no patience with ordinary Christians in the plain discharge of their duty.

Theve has been ed much adulteration of articles of food that it is an ainaze- Bient to me that there is a healthy man or woman in America. Heaven only knows what they put into the spices and into the sugars and into the butter and into the apothecary drug, But chemical analysis and the tnicrosdopic have made wonderful revelations. Ihe board of health in Massachusetts analyzed ft great amount of what was called pure coffee and found In it not ne particle of coffee. In England here Is a law that forbids the putting f alum in bread. The public author- ties examined fifty-one packages Qf bread and found them all guilty.

The Proudfoots must be rich, for no advocate could look to have much business in so remote a quarter; and John hated them for their wealth and for their name, and for the sake of the house they desecrated with their presence. He remembered a Proudfoot he had seen at school, not known; a little whey-faced urchin, the despicable member of some lower class. Could It be this abortion that had climbed to be an advocate, and now lived in the birthplace of Flora and the home of John's tcnderest memories? Tho chill that had first seized upon him when he heard of Houston's absence deepened and struck inward. For a moment, as he stood under the doors of that estranged house, and looked east and west along the solitary pavement of the Royal Terrace, 'Where not a cat was stirring, the sense of solitude that were evil and that he had loved; and It was with a prayer upon his lips that he mounted the steps and thrust the key Into the key-hole. He stepped into tho lighted hall, shut the door softly behind him, and stood there fixed In wonder. No surprise of strangeness could equal the surprise oil that complete familiarity. There was the bust of Chalmers near tho stair- railings, there was the clothes-brush in the accustomed place: and there, on the hat-stand, hung hats and coats that must surely be the same as he remembered. Ten years dropped from his life, as a pin may slip between the fingers; and the ocean and the mountains, and the mines, and crowded marts and mingled races of San Francisco, and his own fortune and his own disgrace, became, for that one moment, the figures of a dream that was over.

The banks are so steep that the cattle cannot come down to drink. It does not run one fertilizing rill Into the adjoining field. It has not one grist mill or factory on either side. It sulks in wet weather with chilling fogs. No one cares when that river is born among the rocks, and no one cares when It 'dies Into the sea. But yonder Is another river, and It mosses Its banks with the warm tides, and it rocks with floral lullaby the water lilies asleep on its bosom. It invites herds of cattle and flocks of Into the root and then shells are placed at this incision to catch the sap or the it exudes. It is very precious, this scammony. But tho peasant mixes It with a cheaper material; then It is taken to Aleppo, and the merchant there mixes It with a cheaper material; then it comes on to tho •holesale druggist in London or New fork, and he mixes it with a cheaper naterial; then it comes to the retail rugglstand he mixes It with a cheaper naterial, and by the time the poor sick man gets it into his bottle It is ashes and chalk and sand, and some of what been called pure scammony after light. So this glorious Gospel is what we want to photograph theji of God on one Boul, and daguerreotype'; 1 ';: it on another soul. Not a new Gospel, - ;, but the old Gospel put to new work.' ^ In our time we have had the telegraphio { > ^ Invention and the telephonic invention,^- ^ and the electric light invention '^but^ they are all children of old electricity., an element that the philosophers have, a long while known much about, -So this electric Gospel needs to flash, its'^ light on the eyes and ears, and souls,.'" o£ men, and to become a telephonic:, medium to make tho deaf hear; .a tele- > f -,^ shee pand coveys of there and drink.

He was at home and rich; presently he SWIFT AND VANESSA. Her Despair and Unwomanly Uoirradn- tlon—A Mnzy Story. I do not think Swift ever cared for Vanessa and I much incline to believe hat he was never married to Stella, ".ays a. writer in a recent issue of the Contemporary Review. Cadenus had. ils weak points; he did not disdain to je adored and Vanessa, poor thing, was vain and flighty. The wildness which she betrayed in her letters can scarcely be matched, except in that amazing French ^mediaeval Latin correspondence of the Abbess Heloisa, not to be rendered by any translation I have ever seen. But, to use the Gallic phrase, she was at the -expense of It herself. One is reminded of the line, ''Apollo flies, and Daphne holds the chase," were It not that Apollo lingered a trifle too long to write verses which he had better have left unwritten. The chase went on for how many years? And how did It end? In despair on the part of Vanessa, in heartbreak and unwomanly degradation. Yes, it is a sad story; but one must not charge Swift with 'having acted as a deceiver, unless ho was married long ago to another woman; then, indeed, it will be hard, though not absolutely impossible to defend him.

The one rlvei is a man who lives for himself. Tin other river is a man who lives fo others. Do you know how the site of th ancient city of Jerusalem was chosen There were two brothers who had adjoining farms. The one brother had a large family, the other had no family. The brother with a large family said: "There is my brother with no family; he must be lonely, and I will, try to cheer him up, and I will take some of the sheaves from my field in the nighttime and set them over on-ails farm, and say nothing about it." The other brother said: "My brother has a large family and it Is very difficult for him to support them, and I will help him and up until they were beyond the reach of tho poor, keeping these breadstuffs in their own hands, or control- down amid the lagoons of Florida,, or, away out amid tho mines of Colorado,' or along the banks of the Potomac, 1 ling them until the prices going up and and lhe Knritan, where I knew them up and up, they were, after awhile, ready to sell, and they sold out, making themselves millionaires in one or two years—trying to fix the matter up with the Lord by building a church or a university or a hospital—deluding themselves with the idea that the Lord would be sc pleased with tho gift he would forget the swindle.
