THE tMJR DBS M01NE8! AL80NA IOWA. WEDNESDAY: MiSRtUKY 24. 189?. ' " 4 BIS10N, LA§f tilts Shift" — At-t*. limp. .itf ttf Vert* 4* — Stttlhfc oil lite-* f*mpfi»t»ioti* off Goodwin Sands, or the Skerries, or Cape Hatteras, was a ship in worse predicament than, ih theMedi- t e f r a n eafi hurri» cane, was the grain ship oh which two hundred and Eev- etty-bli passengers were driven ott the C6ast of Malta, five mites from the metropolis of thnt island, called dltta Vetichla. After a two-weeks' tempest, when the ship was entirely disabled, and captain and crevv had become completely demoralized, an old missionary took command of the vessel. Me was crooked-backed and sore^-eyed, according to tradition. It was Paul, the only ungeared man aboard. He was no rnora afraid of a Euroclydon tossing the Mediterranean sea, now up to the gates of heaven and now sinking it to the gates of hell, than he was afraid of a kitten playing with a string. He ordered them all down to take their rations, first asking for them a blessing. Then h» Insured all their lives, telling them thay would be rescued, and, so far frbih losing their heads", they would not lose so much of their hair as you could cut off with one click of the scissors: nay, not a thread of it, whether it were gray with age or golden with youth. "There shall not a hair fall from the head of any of you." Knowing that they can never get to the desired port, they make the sea on' the fourteenth night black with overthrown..cargo, so that when the ship strikes it will not strike so heavily. At daybreak they saw a creek, and In their' exigency resolved to make for it. And so they cut the cables, took in the two paddles they had on those old boats, and hoisted the mainsail so that they might come with such force as to be dilverf high up on the beach by some fortunate billow. There she goes—tumbling toward the rocks, now prow foremost, now stern foremost, now rolling over to the starboard, now over to the larboard, now a wave dashes clear over the deck, and it seems as if the old craft has gone forever. But up she comes again. Paul's arms around a mast, he cries: "All is well, God has given me all those that sail with me." Crash! went the hiii the risk e! strbh athef efaanSe as wise Ken tbfnfc they can peel oft or twist 6!U of & Scripture passage that has for ari ths Christian centuries been interpreted another ttay." Yah say: "I do ttbt like Princeton theoldgy, df ask jrdit ofl board either of these great hie'n-of-'war, thetf t<i« portholes filled with the great siege- giihs of ecclesiastical battle. But 1 do ask you to take the One plank of the Gospel that you do believe in ahd strike put tot the pearl-sthing beach of heaven. Says some other man: "1 would attend to religion if 1 was quite sure about the ddcti'itie of election and free agency, but that mixes nie 'all up." Those thirigs used td bother me, but 1 have ho more perplexity abbiit them; for i say to myself: "if l love Christ and live a good, honest, useful life, i am elected to be saved; and if 1 do not love Christ, and live a bad life, I will be damned, and ttll the the theological seminaries of the universe cannot make it any different." I floundered along while in the sea of sin and doubt, and it was as rough as the Mediterranean on the fourteenth night, when they threw the grain overboard, but I saw there was mercy for a sinner, and that plank I took, and I have been warming myself by the bright flre on the shore ever since. While 1 am talking to another man about his soul he tells me: "I do not become a Christian because 1 do not believe there is any hell at all." Ah! don't you? Do all the people of all beliefs and no belief at all, of good morals'and'bad morals go straight to a happy heaveti 7 tf° the holy a'ria th'fe debauched have the same destination? At midnight, in a hallway, the owner of a house and a burglar meet; they both fire, and both are wounded, but the burglar dies in five minutes and the owner of the house lives a week after; will the burglar be at the .gate of heaven, waiting, when the house- owner comes in? Will the debauchee and the libertine go right In among the families of heaven? I wonder if Herod is playing on the banks of the river of life with the children he massacred: I wonder If Charles Guiteau and John Wllkes Booth are up there shooting at a mark. I do not now controvert it, although I must say that for such a miserable heaven I have no admiration. But the Bible does not say: "Believe in perdition and be savekl." Because all are saved, according to your theory, that ought not to keep you from loving and serving Christ. Do not refuse to come ashore because all the others, according to your theory, are t« a pictured mansion. Ahd 1 tell yoti if you will come ahd enlist under the banner of our Victor $mmahuei, aftd Hollow him through thick ahd thin, and flght his battles, and enditre his theoldgy, Of sacrifices, you will find after awhile 6r Andover that he has changed,yottf heart front a jtingle of thorny scepticisms ihto a garden all abio&m with luxuriant joy that yotj have never dreamt of. Prom a tahgled Caprera of sadness into a paradise of God. 1 do not know how your theological system went to pieces. It may be that your parents started you with only one plank, and you believe little or nothing, Or they may have been tori rigid ahd severe in religious discipline, and cracked you over the head with a psalm book. It may be that some partner in business who Wits a member of an evangelical church played on yoti a trick that disgusted you with religion. It may be that yoti have associates Who have talked against Christianity In your presence until you are "all at sea," and you dwell more on things that you do not believe than on things you do believe. You are ifi one respect like Lord Nelson, when a signal was lifted that he wished to disregard, and he put his sea-glass to his blind eye and said: "I really do not see the signal." Oh, my hearer, put this field-glass of the Gospel no longer to your blind eye, and say, I cannot see, but put it to your other eye, the eye of faith, and you will see Christ, and he Is all you need to see. If you can believe nothing else, you certainly believe In vicarious suffering, for you se It almost every day In !some shape. The steamship Knicker,- bbcKer; of the Cromwell''!^, running between New Orleans and New York, was in great storms, and the captain and crew saw the schooner Mary D. Cranmer, of Philadelphia, in distress. The weather cold, the waves mountain high, the first officer of the steamship and four men put out in a lifeboat -to save the crew of the schooner, and reached the vessel and towed It out of danger, the wind shifting so that the schooner was saved. But the five men of the steamship coming back, their boat capsized, yet righted again and came on, the sailors coated with ice. The boat.capsized again, and three times upset and was righted, and a line thrown the poor fellows, but their hands were frozen so they could not grasp It, and a great wave rolled over them, and they' went down, never to CfENMAL VARIOUS ffOtBS bP (*AST ANtJ COMINO, Bomb rr.tek AihStour MrtfrkHtheft—TIl» fj«Afcae nt American Vnu-elnion ijk t(> Control ftiiftftg for SolliO Time to fcoma—l?nld'« Hold Dell. NTIL a few days ago George Work, Edgar Glbbs Murphy, Charles Ma^- calester, J. K. Knapp, and Fred fleey divided the honor of being considered the »best •Wing shots in the a hi a t e »ir ranks, and, with the possible exception of Louis T. Duryea and one or two of the Philadelphia cracks* few outside of.'the professionals cared to meet them on even terms. Recently, however, at the Westminster Kennel club grounds, New York, a new star in the plgeottshootlng firmament appeared in the person of George S. McAlpln, who not only outshot such ci'acks as Work, Muvphy and Knapp on even terms from the 31-yard mark, but actually killed 23 birds straight before he finally missed. As a result of this shoot Work and McAlpln were matched to shoot at 200 birds each on the Kennel club grounds. McAlpin won by a score of 151 to 142. In view of the fact that the men shot from the SOryard mark, with a 30-yard boundary, and that a gale .from the nb'rttiwest blew many birds that would otherwise have been counted over the boundary, the shooting of both men was little short of phenomenal. Will get & chance At the crack foreigners in a match race. »tebt» The fact that few of the professional facing mefl outside of the noted riders were unable to earn much money last season suggests that a reconstruction of the sanction rules of the L». A. W. is needed, with the object of providing more race meets throughout the season. George A. Needham, the ex-captain of the Kings County Wheelmen, who has given the subject considerable attention, says: "The great iftci'ease in the number of professional riders dtir* ing the last season seems to necessitate a radical change in the ntanttef of edfi* ducting cycle facing in the future, ¥he league must change its manner of con* trolling the taeats or else give up the attempt to handle the cash prize men. We have ah army of fast riders Who are anxious to make' their living, by cycle riding, yet see what few opportunities there are for these professionals to race. Within the metropolitan district alone there are enough professional riders Co keep a series of meets going almost throughout the season, but with the limited number of race meets It is impossible for all the present professionals to earn a living at racing. The remedy for this condition of affairs is to provide more race meets, and here the L. A. W. racing board stands in the way." /i Lenlme be.

Crash! > w.ent the timbers till the seas rushed through from side to side of the vessel. She parts amidships, and into a thousand fragments the vessel goes, and into the waves two hundred and seventy-six immortals are precipitated. Some of them had been brought iip on the seashore, and had learned to swim and with their chins just above the waves and by the strokes of Doth arms and propulsion of both feet, they put out for the beach and reach it. But alas for those others! They have never learned, to swim or they were wouudert by the falling of the mast, or the nervous shock was too great for them, And others had been weakened by long sea-sickness. Oh, what will become of them? "Take that piece of a rudder' says Paul to one. "Take that fragment of a spar," says Paulto another, "Take that image of Castor and Pollux" "Take that plank from the lifeboat'" 'Take anything, and head for the •beach." What a struggle for life J n the breakers! Oh, the merciless waters how they sweep over the heads of men' , -women and children! 'Hold on there! Almost ashore; keep up your courage' Remember what Paul told you There' the receding wave on the beach leaves }n the sand a whole family.

Because your theory of light is different from others, do not refuse to open your eyes. Because your theory of air is different you do not refuse to breathe. Decau&i your theory about the stellar system is different, you do not refuse to acknowledge the north star. Why should the fact that your theological theories are different hinder you from acting upon what you know? If you have not a whole ship fastened in the theological drydocks to bring you to wharfage, you have at least a plank. "Some 011 broken pieces of the ship." "But I don't believe in revivals!" Then go to your room, and all alone, with your door locked, give your heart to God, and join some church whore the get's higher than rise again till the sea gives up its dead.

Come In without it and settle that matter afterward, "But there are so many inconsistent Christians!" Then come In and show them by a good example how professors should act. "But I don't believe in the Old Testament!" Then, come in on the New, "But I don't like the Book of Romans." Then come in on Matthew or Luke. Refusing to come to Christ, whom you admit to be the Savior of the lost, because you cannot admit other things, you are like a man out there in that Mediterranean tempest, and tossed in the Melita breakers, refusing to come ashore until he can mend the. pieces of tl»e broken ship, I bear him say; "I won't go in on any of these planks until I know in what part of the ship they belong. When I can get the windlass in the right place, and the sails set, and that keel-piece where it belongs, and that floor-timber right, and these ropes untangled, I will go ashore. I am an old sailor, and know all about ships for forty years, and as soon as I can get the vessel afloat in good shape I will come in." A man drifting by on a piece of wood overhears him and says: "You will drowa before you get that ship reconstructed, Better do as I am J 9» talking w jth, g, man thoughtful traveled, New Pflgjand. a< n<} pa^ed the , A H d. 9 ver, , Re w» to HWJ ''I |; ;jf t «anjjo,t JjeJJeve tt»&t jn tJMe Jjfe the flo 9 , ' to , answer opp.ftrtun.Jty of re, itfUff death." fifty J&9 man doing.

The man who trusted to the plank Is gijved.. O my brother, Jet your smashed up system of theology gg to the bot- tpjn, while you come in on a splintered spar! "gome on broken pieces of the ship." Ypu may get ,<U your difficulties settled, as garibaldi, the gpt his prtens made, self-sacrifice of the brave fellows all who can, and can we not appreciate the Christ who put out into a more biting coli 1 , and into a more overwhelming surge, to bring us out of infinite peril into everlasting safety? The wave of human hate rolled over him from one side and the wave of hellish fury rolled over him on the other side Oh, the thickness of the.night and the thunder of .he tempest into which" Christ plunged for our rescue! * » * You admit you are all broken up, one decade of your life gone by, two decades, three decades, four decades a half-century, perhaps three-quarters of a century gone. The hour hand and the minute hand of your clock of life are almost parallel, and soon it will be twelve and your day ended Clear discouraged are you? I admit it is a sad thing to give all our lives that are worth anything to sin and the devil, and then at last make God a present, of a, first-rate corpse. But the past you cannot recover. Get on board that old ship you never will. Have you only one moi-3 year left, one more month, one more week, one more day one more houi—come in on that Perhaps if you get to heaven God may let you go out on some groat mission to some other world, where you can somewhat atone for your lack of service in this. Prom many a deathbed I have seen the hands thrown up in deploration something like this: "My life has been wasted. I had good mental faculties .and fine social position and great opportunity, b.ut through worldliness and neglect all has gone to waste save these few remaining hours. I- now accept of Christ and shall enter heaven through his mercy; but alas, alas! that when I might have entered the haven of eternal rest with a full cargo/and been greeted by the waving hands of a multitude In whose salvation I had borne a blessed part, I must confess I now enter the hartor of,heaven on broken pieces, of the ship." G. S. McALPIN. Not only this, but McAlpin, owing to an accident to his gun, had to change his weapon fliree times during the match,,and to win under such circumstances stamps him as a wonderfully nervy shot, if .not the best in the amateur ranks to-day. Tlie strange thing about McAlpin's shooting is that until a year ago last November he. had never shot at live birds except in the field, which is totally different from trap shooting. McAlpin, who-is a native of Savannah, Ga., is about 40 years of age, and while he has had little experience in live bird shooting, he was considered the best target or inanimate bird shot in the south, and has scores of medals won in Georgia, Virginia and Texas tournaments. McAlpin thanks to his experience on clay birds, has a deadly first barrel, but is rather slow with his second, which is the only blemish on his otherwise perfect shooting. McAlpin is a member of the Carteret Gun club of Bayonue, N. J., and the majority of the members think he is the best shot the country has seen since Macalester was hi his prime. Some of his friends are now endeavoring to match him against Edgar Murphy, and it is not at all improbable that they will meet before the winter is over. nilfllaol'8 MOVGN, James Michael, the Welsh champion wheelman, who has been In America several months, sailed for home Jan. 13 on the steamer Paris. Before leaving' he Issued a sigued statement through the American Wheelman In substance as follows: "I want to thank the American public for my exceedingly cour-t. teous treatment since my arrival in this country. My first visit to America has been very pleasant indeed, and it will give me'great pleasure to return to this country, which I shall do in time for the New York cycle show. -I regret the unfortunate incident which is now being discussed in the papers— my supposed match with Linton and my proposed trip to Florida. T.his arrangement was made without',. my knowledge, the first that I knew of it being a telegram from Florida insisting upon my appearance. This was impossible, owing to a letter which I had just received from my solicitor iri London, advising me of the necessity of my presence in a lawsuit that is to be tried there next week. I <am always willing- to meet my rivals on the track, and Linton is no exception. I will return to America within, the next four weeks and train in the south under different management,, and I will- then be willing to meet-Mr, 1 Linton or* any one else." . . ; The Spartan VIHUO, Is severely taxed by dysbBpsia. digestion will wait dn appetite.

The time for presenting any amendment on that point to the Assembly has passed and therefore the League will retain control of racing for another year." Regarding the threatened trouble with the A.
