Not one of us yet knows how to pray. All we have done as yet has only been pottering. A boy gets hold of his father's saw and hammer, and tries to make something, but it is a poor affair Ing still. The chamois hunter has to fly to catch his prey, but not so swift Is his game as that which the scientist tries to shoot through the tower of observatory. Liks petrels mid^Atlantic, that seem to come' from no shore, arid be bound to no landing place—flying. BASE BALL GOSSIP* that he makes. The father comes and | flying— so these great flocks of world? VERY man has a. thousand roots and a thousand branches. His roots reach down through all the earth; his branches spread through all the heavens. He speaks with voice, with eye, with hand, with foot. His silence often Is loud as thunder, and his life is a dirge or a doxology. There is no such thing us negative influence. We are all positive in the place we occupy, making the world better or making It worse, ou the Lord's side or on the devil's, making up reasons for our blessedness or banishment; and we have already done work in peopling heaven or hell. I hear people tell of what they are going to do. A man who has burned down a city might as well talk of some evil that he expects to do, or a man who has saved an empire might as well talk of some good that he expects to do. By the force of your evil Influence you have already consumed infinite values; or you have by the power of a right influence, won whole kingdoms for God. It would be absurd Tor me, by elaborate argument, to prove that the world is off the track. You might as well stand at the foot of an embankment, amid the wreck of a capsized rail-train, proving by elaborate argument that something Is out of order. Adam tumbled over the embankment sixty centuries ago, and the whole race, in one long train, has gone on tumbling in the same direction. Crash! crash! The only question now is, by what leverage can the crushed thing be lifted? By what hammer may the fragments be reconstructed? I want to show you how we may turn many to righteousness, and what, will be our future pay for so doing. First. We may turn them by the charm of a right example. A child coming from a filthy home was taught at school to wash its face. It went home so much improved in appearance that its mother washed her face. And when the father of the household came home and saw the improvement in domestic appearance, he washed his face. The neighbors, happening in, saw the change, and tried the same experiment, until all that street was purified, and the next street copied its example, and the whole city felt the result of one schoolboy washing his face. That is a fable, by which we set forth that the best way to get the world washed of its sins and pollution is to have our own heart and life cleansed and purified. A man with grace in his heart and Christian cheerfulness in his face and holy consistency in his behavior is a perpetual sermon; and the sermon differs from others in that it has but one head, and the longer it runs the better. Again: We may turn many to righteousness by prayer. There is no such detective as prayer, for no one can hide away from it. It puts its hand on the shoulder of a man ten thousand miles off. It alights on a ship mid- Atlantic. The little child cannot understand the law of electricity, or how the telegraph operator, by touching the instrument here, may dart n message under the sea to another continent; nor can we, with our small intellect, understand how the touch of a Christian's prayer shall instantly strike a soul on the other side of the earth. You take ship and go to some other country, and get there afoleven o'clock in the morning. You telegraph to America and the message gets here at six o'clock the same morning. In other words it seems to arrive here five hours before it started. Like that is prayer. God says: "Before they call, t will hear." To overtake a loved one on the road, you may spur up a lathered steed until he shall outrace the one that brought the news to Ghent; but a prayer shall catch it at one gallop. A boy running away from home may take the midnight train from the country village and reach the seaport in time to gain the ship that sails on the morrow; but a mother's prayer will be on the deck to meet him. and in the hammock before he swings into it, and at the capstan before he winds the rope around, and on the sea, against the sky, as the vessel ploughs on toward it. There is a mightiness in prayer. George Muller prayed a company of poor boys together, and then he prayed up an asylum in which they might be sheltered. He turned his face toward Edinburgh and prayed and there came a thousand pounds, He turned his face toward Dublin and prayed, and there came a thousand pounds. The"breath of Elijah's prayer blew all the clouds off the sky, and it was dry weather. The breath of Elijah's prayer blew all the clouds together, and it was wet weather. Prayer, in Daniel's time, walked the cave as a lion-tamer. It reached up, and took the sun by its golden bit, ana stopped it, and the moon by its silver bit. and stopped it. We have all yet to try the full power of prayer. The time will come when the American Church will pray with Us- face toward the West and all the prairies and inland cities >vill surrender to God; and will pray with face toward the sea, and all t^e islanas and ships will become Christian, rents who have .wayward sons WH down, on tbeir knees and say: I Hri my boy borne," jmdJheJ^m takes the same Saw and hammer, and builds the house or the ship. In the childhood of our Christian faith* we make but poor work with these weapons of prayer, but when we come to the stature of men in Christ Jesus, then, under these implements, the temple of God will rise, and the world's redemption will be launched. God cares not for the length of our prayers; or the number of our prayers, or the beauty of our prayers, or the place of our prayers; but it is the faith in them that tells. Believing prayer soars higher than the lark ever sang; plunges deeper than diving-bell ever sank: darts quicker than lightning ever flashed. Though we have used only the back of this weapon instead of the edge, what marvels have been wrought! If saved, we are all the captives of some earnest prayer. Would God that, in desire for the rescue of souls, we might in prayer lay hold of the resources of the ixml Omnipotent! We may turn many to righteousness by Christian admonition. Do not wait until you can make a formal speech. Address the one next to you. You will not go home alone to-day. Between this and your place of stopping you may decide the eternal destiny of an immortal spirit. Just one sentence may do the work. Just one question. Just one look. The formal talk that begins with a sigh, and ends with a canting snuffle, is not what is wanted, but the heart throb of a man in dead earnest. There is not a soul on earth that you may not bring to God If you CURRENTSAYINOS ANDDOINQS ON THE DIAMOND. rest not as they go—wing and wtnR- age after age—for ever and ever. Thi eagle hastes to its prey, but we shal In speed beat the eagles. You have noticed the velocity of the swift hors( under whose feet the miles slip Ilk* a smooth ribbon, and, as he passes, the four hoofs strike the earth in such quick beat, your pulses take the same vibration. But all these things are not swift in comparison with the motion of which I speak. The moon moves 54,000 miles In a day. Yonder, Neptune flashes on 11,000 miles In an hour. Yonder, Mercury goes 109,000 miles in an hour. So like the stars the Christian shall shine In swiftness of motion You hear now of father or mother or child sick 1,000 miles away, and it takes you two days to get to them. You hear of some case of suffering that demands your Immediate attention, but It take you an hour to get there. Oh, the joy when you shall.in fulfilment of the text, take starryapeed.and be equal to 100,000 miles an hour! Having on earth got used to Christian work, you will not quit when death strikes you. You will only take on more velocity. There IB a dying child in London and its spirit must be taken up to God; you are there In an instant to do it, There is a young man in New York to be arrested from going into that gate of sin; you arc there in an Instant to arrest him. Whether with spring of foot, or stroke of wing, or by the force of some new law that shall hurl you to the spot where you would go, I know not; but my text suggests velocity.

ATCHER SHR VER, the .old-time hero of the Wash- umpire problem arid league headquarters have been (loaded with mail and telegraphic correspondence on the stib- ject from various parts of the country. The double'umpire plan is proposed, but "Uncle Nick" doesn't believe that Is the remedy to prevent unnecessary disputes over close decisions. The suspension of players for two or more days for violation of the rules Is also suggested by Manager Hanlon of Baltimore, Tom Brown of Washington and from other sotircas. 'Uncle Nick" says the question Is 5 that requires due deliberation, and It Is futile to originate any plan unless it has the Ironclad support of the „„. , l n ,f °Ti!f TutProprietors of the various clubs.

A great many players have tured to disagree with t but the umpire. In a recent series between Boston and New York at Boston Mr. Soden, the president of the Boston club, ralleil Captains Duffy and Joyce before him juat prior to the starting of the first game. He called their attention to the interest the Boston patrons take game and their desire to see fair play win or lose. He added that large crowds of people AN ALABAMA HERO, <Jlte* is willing to wager $25 with any "doubting Thomas" o"- 1148 ^. 0 " 1 "™- , lnat ,ar,e «ruwu B u, 1>W| ... - So far nobody has take, up his oBei > ^ t<j wlthega the gtrug " ™*"-} n *™?2* ll SJ£?%* *e "'tween New York and Boston. •- tlon Shrlvcr said to Harry Weldon the other day: "I am bettlns on a sure thing.

Across the op of the. uprights a polo Is laid on very lightly, so that the slightest con- act will knock It off Its perch. To ^^ ^ >rovc that a catcher can throw a ball I ti",e"cxamplo of Mr. Soden much of the rightly go at it. They said Gibraltar ol , Gn before you with nothing to hinder could not be taken. It is a rock, sixteen hundred feet high, and three miles long. But the English and Dutch did take it. Artillery, and sappers and miners, and fleets pouring out volleys of death, and thousands of men reckless of danger, can do anything. The stoutest heart of sin, though It be rock, and surrounded by an ocean of transgression, under Christian bombardment may hoist the flag of redemption. Again: Christian workers shall be like the stars in the fact that they have a light independent of each other. Look up at the night, and see each world show its distinct glory. It is not like the conflagration, in which you cannot tell where one flame stops and another begins. Neptune, Herachel, and Mercury are as distinct as if each one of them were the only star; so our individualism will not be lost in heaven. A great multitude—yet each one as observable, as distinctly recognized, as greatly celebrated, as if in all the space, from gate to gate, and from hill to hill, he were the only inhabitant; no mixing up—no mob—no indiscriminate rush; each Christian worker standing out illustrious—all the story of earthly achievement adhering to each one; his self-denials and pains and services and victories published. Before men went out to the last war, the orators told them that they would all be remembered by their country, and their names be commemorated in poetry and in song; but go to the graveyard in Ilich- kicking against the decisions of thc umpire. The result of this curtain lecture was that the entire series was playod out without any disagreeable exhibitions over thc umpire. If other league magnates would follow mond, and you will flnd there six thousand graves, over each of which is the inscription, "Unknown." The world does not remember its heroes; but there will be no unrecognized Christian worker in heaven. Each one known by all; grandly known; known by acclamation: all the past story of work for God gleaming in cheek and brow and foot and palm. They shall shine with distinct light as the stars, forever and ever. Again: Christian workers shall shine like the stars in clusters. In looking up, you find the worlds in family circles. Brothers and sisters—they take hold of each other's hands and dance in groups. Orion in a, group. Tho Pleiades in a group. The solar system is only a company of children, with bright faces, gathered around one great fireplace. The worlds do npt straggle off. They go in squadrons and fleets, sailing through immensity. So Christian workers in heaven will dwell in neighborhoods and clusters. I am sure some people I will like In heaven a great deal better than oth- you in mission of light and love and joy, you shall shine in swiftness of motion as the stars for ever and ever. Again: Christian workers, like tho stars, shine in magnitude. The most Illiterate man knows that those things in the sky, looking like gilt buttons are great masses of matter. To weigh them, one would think that it would re quire scales with a pillar hundreds o thousands of miles high, and chain hundreds of thousands of miles long and at the bottom the chains basins 01 either side hundreds of thousands o miles wide, and that then omnlpotenc alone could put the mountains into th scales and the hills into the balance. But puny man has been equal to the undertaking, and has set a little balance on his geometry, and weighed world against world. Yea, he has pulled out his measuring lino, and announced that Hevschel is 36,000 miles in diameter, Saturn 79,000 miles in diameter, and Jupiter 89,000 miles in diameter, and that the smallest pearl on the beach of heaven is immense beyond all imagination. So all they who have toiled for Christ on earth shall rise up to a magnitude of privilege, and a nagnitude of strength, and a magnitude of holiness, and a magnitude of joy; and the weakest saint in glory become greater than all that we can imagine of an archangel. Brethren, "It doth not yet appear •what we shall be." Wisdom that shall know everything; wealth that shall to second from the catcher's position at ess than six feet high It must be .brown under this top piece on the uprights. I know It looks easy and without seeing It tried your would pretty nearly swear that there arc a half dozen catchers who could do It. I have seen It attempted and 1 know that it Is next to impossible. The ball doesn't look like It is very high, but when you come to make tho throw you will flnd that unless the bnll Is elevated more than six feet somfc part of the journey it will not have speed enough to carry so that it can be handled by the second baseman. I think I can throw pretty nearly as hard as; nny of them, and I couldn't do it." trouble would be avoided. A Now Brown.

We shall not bo like a taper set in a sick man's window, or a bundle of sticks kindled on the beach to warm a shivering crew; but you must take the diameter and the circumference of the world if you would get any idea of the greatness of our estate when we shall shine as the stars for ever ind ever. Lastly—and coming to this point my mind almost breaks down under the Ivorr'n Idiw. President Ken- of the Plttsburg club has taken a stand which is worth consideration by several other clubs In the National league. He says he will proceed to get together a team of young players for Plttsburg, and keep experimenting until he gets the right material if he doesn't win a dozen games in two years. Mr. Kerr has met with much discouragement from the work of the veterans on his team, and has come to a llnal conclusion that the way to get a winning team Is to begin at the ground and build up. That theory In all right, but he must have a master builder in charge, a good manager, and such a man is hard to get. There haven't been many of the young players of the big league brought in this year who have made pronounced successes. Among the most prominent of them are Hartman and Harley of St. Louis; Callahan of Negro Who ivftiirn * Gold hf ftSOnrti** School* From the Atchlson Globe: Thera have been many shocking stories In the papers of late descriptive of atrocities perpetrated upott negroes accused of i-.rime In the South. It Is, therefore,, especially pleasant to recall ft recent incjdent that has the effect of vivid contrast. Scott Brown Was a big, awkward negro, who lived in Montgomery, Ala. Me was one of tha happy kind who are properly objects of envy to the dyspeptic white man. Scott was always a cheerful creature to look at, but nobody thought of him as at all an uncommon specimen of his race. Perhaps he isn't. He was walking along Commerce street, in Montgomery, one afternoon, when suddenly there was an uproar, ana Scott saw the cause of It rtishthg toward him. A runaway team was coming at a breakneck speed, and right in the track of the maddened horses werP two pretty little children crossing the street. Scott Is snld to have reached the middle of the street in one jump. There wasn't time to make two. The leaping horses seemed to be absolutely upon the children who stood perfectly still, dazed. Scott gave one of them a push that sent her out of reach of danger, but there was not time to repeat the act. So, swiftly clutching the other child to his broad breast, he fell forward, bending over her, shielding her with his body. In a fraction ot a second the horses were upon him, over him, with a crash and a pounding of hoofs. The spectators saw him half rise and then fall weakly back, the child still clasped In his arms. She was entirely unhurt, hut Scott was pretty nearly killed. However, he recovered In a few weeks and was substantially rewarded by Mr. J. W. Branscomb, the father of the two chll-. dren. Then the little folks in the First Methodist Sunday school, to which tho Branscomb children belonged, got up a fund, and when Scott was well enough they ga.ve him a reception and also a gold watch bearing the Inscription, "Court Street Sunday School to Scott Brown for His Heroism Juno 12, 1897."

They walked every hour anxious lest they should lose their dignity. They loved God, and yonder they shine In brilliant constellation. Yet I should not long to get into that particular group Yonder is a constellation of email-hearted Christians—asteroids in the eternal astronomy. While some souls go up from Christian battle, and blaze like Mars these asteroids dart a feeble ray like Vesta. Yonder is a constellation of martyrs, of apostles, of patriarchs. Our souls, as they go up to heaven, will seek out the most congenial society. Yonder is a constellation almost merry with the Play of light. On earth they were full of sympathies and songs and tears and raptures and congratulations. When they prayed their words took fire; when they sang, the tune could not hold them; when they wept over a world's woes, they sobbed as if heart-broken; when they worked for Christ they flamed with enthusiasm. Yonder they are-circle of light! constellation of joy! galaxy of flre! Oh, that you and I, by that grace which can transform the worst into the best, might at last sail in the wake of that fleet, and wheel in that glorious group, as the stars for ever and ever!

The same stars that look down upon us looked down upon the Christian shepherds. The meteor that I saw flashing across the sky the other night, I wonder if it was not tho same one that pointed down to where Jesus lay in the manger, and if, having pointed out his birthplace, it has ever slnco been wandering through the heavens, watching to see how the world would treat him! When Adam awoke in the garden in the cool of the day, he saw coming out through the dusk of the evening the same worlds that greeted us last night. In Independence hall is an old cracked bell that sounded the signature of the Declaration of Independence. You cannot ring it now; but this great chime of silver bells that strike In the dome of night, ring out in as sweet a tone as when God swung them at the Creation.

'Gil's" wonderful success at San Antonio this aeason shows him to be more ban fast enough for tha major league. Hlu success has not lain in spectacular performances or "phenomenal feats," nit simply in winning his games. He has mastered all the fine points of the twirling art and pitches with a finesse and a cool steadiness that is fatal to the run-getting efforts of his opponents. He has fine curves and plenty of speed, but perhaps his strongest point is in biH ability for getting noxt to the weak spots of tho butters and the smiling sang frold with which ho keeps them bothered.

Kn route to Dayton Browns and Reds mingled lilio members of one happy family. Somebody spoke of the umpire. Morgan Murphy constituted himself a committee of one to speak in his defense. "I've seen all kinds," said the little backstop, "good, bad and indifferent. The best any umpire gets is the worst of it. I don't think it is right for players to kick as they do. The umpire Is there to do the best he can. If playero were compelled to pay their own fines there would be less of this kicking, but the magnates are to blame. They wink at rule violations that help their team." WHERE DIAMONDS COME FROM Bru7.ll mid South Africa I''urnl9li llic lUilk of the Produut. For centuries the only source of diamonds was India, the chief of which was the region of Golconda. The phrase "diamonds of Golconda" refers not to the mines but to the town where they were taken for sale. It is now little more than an abandoned fort, the Indian mines being largely worked out. In 1734 diamonds were- found In Brazil and for 120 years diamonds were brought from that source. After various attempts to work these diamond mines by Individuals, about a century ago the firm of Hope & Co. of Amsterdam undertook the work and for the privilege assumed tho government, debt of Brazil. Amsterdam thus continued to hold her position as tho center of the diamond cutting industry,, employing, directly or indirectly, from 30,000 to 40,000 people. Of late Antwerp, Paris and London have been overtaking Amsterdam in this industry, Antwerp cutting one-quarter of the world's yield today. Within the last thirty years the product of '.he Brazil mines has dec1m¥d to the extent, of $150,000 annunlly.i'. The introduction of new machinery must again render these mines Important, but they are now undersold by the African diamond field. The African discoveries began in 1850 and have had several distinct stages of development. Probably had it not been for the diamonds the African gold mines would not have risen to their present importance. The first diamonds were found on tbe Gong Gong river in the neighborhood of the Orange river, and the method followed .there Is the same as that in Brazil, two or three men forming a company and working on their ac- cont. These mines, known as the "river diggings," are now of limitet) importance. lonstltude to Western Australia.
