It was during the exciting scenes Of 1890 that he revived his first professional engagement with J. Palmer O'Nell's Plttabitrg fram, of (he National League. He participated Iu twenty-three champion* ship contests with that, very much defeated team. The Pittsburg winning seventeen out of one hundred and thirty championship games that, year. In 1891 .linker was with the Otturnwa learn, of tlm Illinois and Iowa League. In 1892 he went south and joined the Chattanooga tuain, of tho Southern League. The championship season was divided hito two parts that year down there, and Chattanooga came in first in the flrst part, but finished loat.ln the second part. Baker's pitching, batting and outfield playing with the Chatta- noogas that season had u great deal to •do towards winning that club flrst place in' the first part of the championship season. His excellent work that year attracted .the attention of the management of the Baltimore club, of the National League and American association, and he was engaged for the .season of 1898. but his work after he became a member of the Baltimore team "was not satisfactory. He was loaned to the New Orleans club, of the Southern League, late in the season, where he regained his strength and speed. After the dlshnmluicnL of the Southern League he returned to the Baltimore club, and did vory good work. He was reserved by the Baltl- mores for the season of 1891. but 'as that club had a surplus of pitchers on its list, Baker was allowed to go to the New Orleans club, of the Southern League. In 1895 he was with the Mil- •waukee club, of the Western League, and began the season of 189i'i with the Mil.waukees, but finished it with the Minneapolis team, .of the same league, ^participating in forty-two championship games during that, season with the two clubs. Among some of his beet pitching performances was the holding the Kansas Citys down to four safe Jilts on June S, 3895, at Milwaukee, and although,, the Milwaiikees mode ton safe hits, the Kansas Citys won by 3 lo 2. On July 7 following, at Milwaukee, he allowed the Detroils only four safe.hits, from which they tallied two runs. On July 18. ]89li, at Milwaukee, lie held the Indianapolis team down to four safe hits, and after he joined the Minneapolis team 1m prevented the Grand Rapids team from making more than four safe hitK in the second of the two games played Sept. J3, at^ Grand Rapids. Ills best butting feat was in a game between the Milwaukees nnd St. Pauls, May 31, 18!)n, when he made five safe hits, Including a home run. A V«!«Ti»n Second liunoiimii. .Thomas C. Nicholson, better known lirofessionally as "Parson," tho veteran second baseman oC the Detroit team, 'was born April 1.4, 1802, at Pleasant {Valley, .Ohio,.and .learned to play ball at Bellaii;e,r-Kaining considerable, local j'enown with the Ohio ami Globe amateur teams. His first professional engagement was with the Steubeuvllle i(Ohio) club, in 1887, where his Jin« playing attracted the attention of the offtciulsoftheWheelingeUib of the Ohio KIRTLBY BAKER. , gtjM& League, and he wus engaged by • that oluu, finishing the season with its t&W, participating in forty-three 1 ffiatt! for the J^ter. |u J858 he was ou'• $*£®* b ? cPreslijent YOB <Jer 4 he for his team, yf thp Western »» ,ft«4 after njU'tieipating jn B, ,tl»e team Ihe thS K'aUdnal Ledgtie, but Attet belfte kept oft the bench for some time, he fras released, and was imtnediatfely signed by the f oledo club, of the In- tprnational League, participating in eighty-seven c.hftmpionshiti t;fl*es as a short stop on Its team, and ranking wolt up as a bntsman In the official averages of that league. He remained with the Toledo team during the season of 1890. In 1891 he was a member of the Sioux City team, of the Western association, and participated In one 'hundred and twenty-four championship games as a second baseman. Only one other mah besides himself In that association went over the century mark in games played that season, that being Jimmy Manning, of the Kansas Citys. the latter taking part in one hundred and sixteen games. In 1892 Nichol- Bon signed with the Toledo club, of the Western League, and after participating in forty-two championship games that organisation disbanded. In 1893 ho joined the Erie club, of the Eastern League, participating that season In one hundred and four championship games, and ranking first as a second baseman In tlie official fielding averages He was re-engaged for the season of 1804,participating that year In one hundred and five championship contests. His excellent work with the Erie team led to his engagement with the Washington club, of the National League and American Association, for the season of 1895, but after participating In ten championship games as a short stop, he wan released, and immediately signed with the Detroit club, of the Western League, finishing the season as a second baseman on Its team, and participating In eighty-one championship games. He was re-engaged by tho Detroit club for the season of 1896, taking part during the year in one hundred and twenty-nine championship contests. He was credited with some THOMAS C. NICHOLSON. fine fielding and batting performances during the past two seasons while connected with the Detroit, team. Of the fielding feats in 1895, he was credited with accepting all of twelve chances in one game, once eleven out of twelve chances, and six times accepting ten chances, four times accepting nine chances, and three times all of eight chances. Of his batting that year, twlco he was credited with making five safe hits, Including four double baggers, and three times four safe hits, including three doubles. During the season of .1801! he was credited with once accepting eleven chances,,elght times accepting ten chances, six times accepting niiiu chances, and five times accepting eight chances. In three- games against Columbus, June 19, 22 and 24, he made ten safe hits, including a home run, two triple baggers and a two baser. In U\ f o other games he made six safe hits, including two triples and two doubles, On six other occasions he was credited with making three safe hits to a game. A curious thing happened on June 29, 189G, at Indianapolis, Ind., when he played the entire nine innings at second base without haying a fielding chance. He was credited with 'going to the. bat once only, but failed to make u safe hit, nor did he get In a run. . J)i»mouc! uiiiiu. Dan Daub, the clover pitcher of the Brooklyn club, is to coach the Amherst College team. Jerry Denny, -tho veteran ex-professional third baseman, will manage the Derby team, of the Naugatuck Valley League, during the coming season, Perry Werclen is down to weight and ready to begin playing at a moment's notice. He should do good work 'with the Loulsviljes during the coming season.

"Thcil Went 1 tp in'lhe Sight l>.t the Brook fthtt Viewed the tfratl, and fritftbtt Bark and Entered by th* Gate at th« Valley"—Jfejn. 2: to. DEAD city is more suggestive than a living city — past Rome than present Rome — ruins rather than newly frescoed cathedral. But the best time to visit a ruin is by moonlight. The Coliseum is far more fascinating to the traveler after sundown than before. You may stand by daylight amid the monastic ruins of Melrose Abbey, and study shafted oriel, and rosetted stone and mullion, but they throw their strongest witchery by moonlight. Some of you remember what the enchanter of Scotland said In the "Lay of the Last Minstrel:" Wouldst thou view fair Melrose aright, Go visit it by the pale moonlight. Washington Irving describes the Andalusian moonlight upon the Al- hambru ruins as amounting to an enchantment. My text presents you Jerusalem in ruins. The tower down. The gates down. The walls down. Everything down. Nehemiah on horseback, by moonlight looking upon the ruins. While he rides, there are some friends on foot going with him. for they do not want the many horses to disturb the suspicions of the people. These people do not know the secret of Nehemiah's heart, but they are going as a sort of body-guard. I hear the clicking hoofs of the horse on which Nehemiah rides, as he guides it this way and that, Into this gate and out of that, winding through that gate amid the debris of once great Jerusalem. Now the horse comes to dead halt at the tumbled masonry where he cannot pass. Now he shies off at' the charred timbers. Now he comes along where the water under the moonlight flashes from the mouth of the brazen dragon after which the gate was named. Heavy-hearted Nehemiah! Riding in and out, now by his old home desolated, now by the defaced Temple, now amid the scars of Uie fifty that had gone down under battering-ram and conflagration. The escorting party knows not what Nehemiah means. Is he getting crazy? Have his own personal sorrows, added to the sorrows of the nation, unbalanced his Intellect? Still the midnight exploration goes on. Nehemiah on horse-back rides through the fish gate, by the tower of the furnaces, by the king's pool, by the dragon well, In and out, in and out, until the midnight ride is completed, and Nehemiah dismounts from his horse, and to the amazed and confounded and incredulous body-guard, declares tho dead secret of his heart when he says: "Come now, let us build Jerusalem," "What, Nehemiah, have you any money?" "No." "Have you any kingly authority?" "No." "Have you any eloquence?" "No." Yet that midnight, moonlight ride of Nehemiah resulted in the glorious rebuilding of the city of Jerusalem. The people knew not how the thing was to be done, but with great enthusiasm they cried out: "Let us rise up now and build the city." Some people laughed and said it could not be done. Some people wore infuriate and offered physical violence, say- Ing'tho thing should not be done. But the workmen went right on, standing on the wall, trowel in one hand, sword in the other, until the work was gloriously completed, At that very -time in Greece, Xenophon was writing a history, and ElatO'was:inuKing;|jii.UlQsoph.v, and Demosthenes was -rattling his rhetorical thunder; but all of them together did not do so much for the world as this midnight, moonlight ride of praying, courageous, homesick, closemouthed Nehemiah. My subject first impresses me with the idea what an intense thing is church affection, Seize the bridle of that horse and stop NeUemiuh, Why are you risking your life here iu the night? Your horse will stumble over these ruins and fall on yon. Stop this useless exposure of your life. No; Nehemiah will not stop. He at. last tells us the whole story. He lets us know he was an, exile Jn a far ..distant land; he was a servant, a cup-bearer. Jn the palace Of Artaxerxes I/onglmanus, and one day, while ho was handing the cup of wjne to the king, the king said to him, "What is the matter with you? You are not sick. I know you. must have some great trouble, W-bat is the matter with, you?" Then he told the king Jiow that beloved Jerusalem was broken down; how that his father's tomb hod been desecrated; how that the Temple had been dishonored and defaced; how that the walls were scattered and broken. "Well," says King ArtRxerxos, "what do you want?" "Well," said the cup-bearer JfehemlaU, "I want to go home. Ji want to fix up the grave of my father, I wnnt to re- slpre the beauty of the Temple, I want to rebuild the masonry of the city wall, Besides, J want passports aq that I shall not be hindered in my journey. And fie^te-tbftt," ag you'wiil ling in the SQWtest, "I wanl «"n or<Jer oj) the m,an wh<? keeps your forest tar just so, timber £8.

The fact is that you love the Church o? God so much that there 1 is no spot on earth so sacred, unless it be your own fireside. The church has been to you So mltch comfort and illumination that there is nothing that makes you so irate as to have it talked against. If there have been times when you have been carried into captivity by sickness, you longed for the Church, our holy Jerusalem, Just as much as Nehemlalt, longed for his Jerusalem, and the flrst day you came out you came to the house- of the Lord. When the Temple was in ruins, like Ndhemiah, you walked around and looked at it. and In the moonlight you stood listening if you could not hear the voice of the dead organ, the psalm of the expired Sabbaths. What Jerusalem was to Nehemiah, the Church of God is to you. Sceptics and infidels may scoff at the Church as an obsolete affair, as a relic of the dark ages, as a convention of goody-goody people, but all the impression they^have ever made on your mind against {ho Church of God is absolutely nothing. You would make more sacrifices for it to-day than any other institution, and if it were needful you would die in its defence. You can take the words of the kingly poet as he said: "If I forgot thee. O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning." You understand in your own experience the pathos, the home-sickness, the courage, the holy enthusiasm of Nehemiah in his midnight moonlight ride around the ruins of his beloved Jerusalem. * * * Agaifl. My subject gives me a specimen of busy and triumphant sadness If there was any man in the world who had a right to mope and give up everything as lost, it was Nehemiah You say, "He was a cup-bearer iu the palace of Shushan, and it was a grand place. So it was. The hall of that palace was two hundred feet square and the roof hovered over thirty-six marble pillars, each pillar sixty feet high; and the intense blue of the sky and the deep green of the forest foliage, and the white of the driven snow all hung trembling in the upholstery But, my friends, you know very we! that line architecture will not pul down home-sickness. Yet Nehemial: did not give up. Then when you see him going among these desolated streets, and by these dismantled tow ers, and by the torii-up grave of his father, you would suppose that he would have been disheartened, am that he would have dismounted from his horse and gone to his room and said: "Woe is me! My father's gravo Is torn up. The temple is dishonored The walls arc broken down. I have no money with which to rebuild, wish I had never been born. I wisl I were/dead.". Nehemiali Although he had u grief so. intense tha it excited the .commentary of his .king yet that penniless, expatriated Nehe miah rouses himself up to rebuild thi city. He gets his permission of ab sence. He gets his passports. He has tens away to Jerusalem. By night on horseback ho rides through tho ruins He overcomes the most ferocious oppo sition. He arouses the piety and pa triotlsm of the people, and in les: than two months, namely, fifty-two days, Jerusalem was rebuilt. That': what I call busy and triumphant sad ness. My friends, the whole temptation i: with you when you have trouble, to do just the opposite to the behavior o Nehemiah, and that is to givo up. Yoi say: "I have lost my child and cai never smile again." You say, "1 hav lost my property, and 1 never can re pair my fortunes." You say, "I hav fallen into sin, and 'I never can star again for a new life." If Satan can jnake you form that resolution, an make you keep It, he has ruined you Trouble is not sent to crush you, bu to arouse you, to animate you, to pro pel you. The blacksmith does no thrust the iron into the forge, and thei blow away with the bellows, and thei bring the hot iron out on the anvl and beat with stroke after stroke tc ruin the iron, but to prepare it for a better use. Oh that the Lord God o Nehemiah would rouse up all broken hearted people to rebuild. Whipped betrayed, ship-wrecked, imprisoned Paul went right on. The Italian mar tyr Algerius sits In his dungeon writ ing a letter, and he dates it, "Fron the delectable orchard of the Leonliv prison." That is what i call trluin phant sadness. I knew,a mother who buried her babe on Friday and on Sab bath appeared in the house of God anc said: "Give me a class; give me a Sabbath school class. 1 have no chile now left me, and I would like to have a class of little children. Give me real poor children. Give me a class off the back s'treet." That, I say, is beau tlful. That is triumphant sadness. Ai three o'clock every Sabbath, afternoon for years, in a beautiful parlor In Phil adelphia—a parlor pictured and stat- uetted — there \vere from ten to twenty destitute children of the street Those destitute children received religious instruction, concluding witn cakes and sandwiches. How do I know that that was going OB for sixteen years? l know it in this way. That was the flrst home in Philadelphia where I was called to comfort a great borrow. They had, a splendid boy, and he had, been drowned at Umg Branch T fhe father and, mother almost idol' j$ed the hoy, a tt d the sob a»cj shriek of that father awl mother as they WP to,4a,y. There ee^ed {Q be no use »f "Wtefr f w wb » en I fcaeit do\v» to -— th^e outcry IR tye j^W) 4ro\s "8JAy Jr"w9 1^0I'd COOti** mm* TJw'od.wtfw would find a monument with the Walter" inscribed upon it., ami a wreath of fresh flowers around the name. 1 think there was not an hotif n twenty years, winter or summer, then thore was not a wreath of fresh flowers around Walter's name. But he Christian mother who sent those flowers there, havfng no child left, Sabbath afternoons mothered ten or wcnty of the lost ones of the street. That is beautiful. That is what I call busy and triumphant sadness. Here s a man who has lost his property. He does not go to hnrd drinking. He loes not destroy his own life. He 'omes and says. "Ha#ta'~ me *°^ Christian work. My money s gone. ' I late no treasures on earth. 1 want treasures in heaven. I have a voice and a heart to serve God." You say hat that man has failed. He has not failed—he has triumphed! Oh, I wish I could persuade all the j>eople who have any kind of trouble never to give up. I wish they would ook at the midnight rider of the text, and that the four hoofs of that beast on which Nehemiah rode might cut to pieces all your discouragements, and hardships, and trials. Give up! Who is going to give up, when on tlie bosom of God he can have all his troubles hushed? Give up! Never think of giving up. Are you borne down with poverty? A little child was found holding her dead mother's hand In the darkness of a tenement house, and some one coming iu, the little girl looked up. while holding her dead mother's hand, and said, "Oh, I do wish that God had made more light for poor folks." My deai'. God will be your light, God will be your shelter, God will be your home. Are you borne down with tlie bereavements of life? Is the house lonely now that the child is gone? Do not give up. Think of what the old sexton said when the minister asked him why he put so much care on the little graves, in tho cemetery—so much moro care than on the larger graves, and the old sexton said, "Sir, you know that 'of such is the kingdom of heaven,' and 1 think the Savior is pleased when he sees ao much white clover growing around these little graves." But when the minister pressed the old sexton for a more satisfactory answer, the old sexton said, "Sir, about these larger graves, I don't know who are the Lord's saints and who ttre not; but you know, sir, it is clean different with the bairns." Oh, If you have had that keen, tender, indescribable sorrow that comes from the loss of a child, do not give up. The old sexton was right. It is all well with the bairns. Or, if yoi have sinned, If you have sinned grievously—sinned until you havo^been cas out by the Church, sinned until you have been cast out by society, do., not give up. Perhaps there may be in this, house one that could truthfully uttei the lamentation of another: Once I was pure as the snow, but I fell—' Fell like a snowdake, from heaven U • hell- Fell, to be trampled as filth in the street- Fell, to be scoffed at, spit on am beat; Praying, cursing, wishing to die, Selling my soul to whoever would buy Dealing in shame for- a morsel of bread, Hating the living and fearing the dead. Do not give up. One like unto the Son of God comes to you today, say ing, "Go and stu no more;" while he cries out to your assailants, "Let him that is without sin cast the first stone at her." Oh! there is no reason wh> anyone in this house, by reason of an} trouble or sin, should give up Are you a foreigner, and in a strange land? Nehemiah, was an exile. Are you penniless? Nehoiniah was poor Are you homesick? Nehemiah was home' (< Are you broken-hearted. Nehemialf 'was broken-hearted, Bui just see him in the text, riding along the sacrlloged grave of his father, anc by the dragon well, and through the fish gate, and by the king's pool, in and out, in and out, the moonlight falling on the broken masonry, which throws a long shadow at which the horse shies, and at the same time that moonlight kindling up the features of this man till you see not only the mark of sad reminiscence, but the com age and hope, the enthusiasm of a man who knows that Jerusalem will be re builded. I pick you 'up today, out of your sins and out of your sorrow, and t put you against the warm heart of Christ. "The eternal God is thy ref uge, and underneath are the everlas't ing arms," Proved For some time Harry Brown of Jola has been carrying in his pocket a trade dollar which some one passed upon him. The other day he tossed it onto a counter, revealing the picture of a man. With infinite pains some one had made the dollar into a locket and so skillfully was the wov* performed that when closed no sign of a hinge could be seen.
