Tl<» rroneiit itnd tlio Future. • Regarding the future llfo as an outgrowth of this, we can see more clearly the meaning of this life. We are here for growth, for discipline, for schooling; to learn the difference between good and evil, right and wrong; to rise out of the animal into the moral and spiritual life, and to help our fellows in rising. The loves that bind us to one another in families and communities are sacred loves, budding here, only to blossom and bear richer fruit beyond, "In those everlasting gardens Where angels walk and seraphs are the wardens," and "where they neither marry nor are given In marriage, but are as the angels"—flowering into a love, broader. deeper and more divine, ol which our sweet home relations are but the bud and promise, With this view o£ the risen life, there Is not a. duty here, not a pleasure, no: a pain, not an experience, especially there is not a good deed done, a kind word spoken, a helping hand rendered, any single act done to aid our fellows and bless the world, that does not tell directly upon the character, and so upon the condition of the life beyond — Rev. Wm. P. Tilden. mission from Him. Be sure Iff a dark day ot a light that will follow, that loss will terminate in gnin, that trial will issue in rest, doubt In satisfac- ticn, suffering- in patience. Take your iluty. then, and be strong In it. The great Question Is not what you will get, but what you will become. The great- I est wealth you will ever get will he yourself. j Mukeiliirti. j It ia wonderful how- little downright honesty men have in dealing either . with themselves or others, how hard it is for men to face the facts and meet , them as they are. We are forever con- | coaling, covering up,.explaining away, j We refuse to see the tiling Just aa It j Is, Wo give it another name it 1 we can do no better, and imagine that the new luune has, somehow, conferred a new nature. The laborious way In which people lie to themselves is one of the saddest things wo know. Did ever a sinner actually face his sin honestly and call it by its honest name? Surely never, unless led by the grace of God. Till he Is so led to real self-knowledge and downright, real repentance, he is always excusing, always making apologies, always, if he can do no better, Inventing softer names for it. It might be supposed that if honesty wore to be found anywhere it would be found in religion. And yet, possibly, nowhere are men more dishonest, nowhere do they less face the fact, nowhere are they more deluded by makeshifts than In matters religious. IlnpplllMH. True happiness hath no locality, No tones provincial, no regular garb. Where duty goes she goes; with jiistlcb goes; And goes with meekness, charity and love. Where'er a tear is dried, wounded heart Bound up; a wounded spirit with the dew Of sympathy anno!nted: or a'pnng Of honest sympathy soothed; or injury Re-peated oft, as oft by love forgiven; Where'er an evil passion is subdued. Or virtue's feeble embers fanned; where'er A sin is heartily abjured and left- There is a high and holy place, a spot Of sacred light, a most religious fane, Where happiness, descending. aits ant' am lice. , —Pollock. SnflertaK for Otltcri. It is by passing through the fire that we know how to deal with people who are In the furnace. So we may thank God that we have been afflicted, if we are ministers, or If we are teachers of others. We have sometimes to suffer. not for our own sake, but for the sake of others, that we may be enabled to speak a word In season to him that is weary, and say to such, "I know your road. I have been that way before. I know the darkness and the weariness of the way. Pilgrims who are enduring the ills of the wilderness take heart •when they see a fellow traveler to whom all these are common things.—' Spurgeon. • _ _ Rectirlnic th* Bent Kc«ultl. There Is a growing feeling among : men of wealth and public spirit that to secure the best results of their philanthropy it must be at least begun dur- - Ing life. It can then be imbued with the spirit of the founder, and he may. In this life already, experience some of the satisfaction that comes with tho accorapl.'shment of his high alms. Then •when death comes, he will not only be sustained with the knowledge of good already performed, but he will have the assurance that the object to which his benefactions are to be extended is worthy of and will carry out hia plans «ml purposes when he shall be no more. One of the mottoes carried In the Labor Day parade ran In this way; "Whoever is. elected, we shall have to work," There was sound philosophy in that motto, and workingmen may confidently apply it to tho situation in which they fl-nd themselves to-day. All of us —all of the vast army of wage earners here In the United States—must work If wo expect to get money. Labor is the only thing that most of us have to give for money, and If we do not sell our labor we have no income. What docs it menn, then, when some people tell us that we shall grow rich— that we shall get more money—If a great many moro silver dollars are coined for mine owners who take their silver to the mints? Is it m'cant that we shall be able to pet s-,me of these new silver dollars without working for them? Surely not this; for we "shall have to work, whoever is elected president." Perhaps it is meant thai workingmen will get more of the, silver dollars for the same amount of work which now brings them dollars' as good as gold. But who is to' guarantee this to the workingmen? They do not get more in Japan, surely, or in Mexico, or in Ar- for the Chicago platform and Mr. Bryan; indeed they had all to do with drafting the one and naming the other. Since this information has become general we hear leas from Mr. Bryan's side of the house of the eastern mil- lionnire and his preference for sound and honest money as opposed to silver inflation and repudiation. But the free sliver agitator Is much disturbed' just now because the eastern manufacturer and the railroad ofilcer are telling their employees that the factory and mill cannot run ;ind the railroad be operated profitably under a free silver monetary system. They eay tho employer h;\s no ri?';it to intimate to his employee what conditions are favorable to his industry or enterprise and what not. Why hasn't he? Are not the interests of employer and employee largely identical? Is it possible for the employer to be hurt without the employee feeling It? Should an employer allow his employee to be misled into doing what will result in loss ot work or wages without saying a word 'by way -of caution to put him on his guard? Is the right of tree speech to be denied the employer? And is a word well meant Another strong rival referred' to elsewhere In the report Is Argentina, whose farmers have cheaper and fresher lands and whose labor expenses are much less than those ot their American competitors. Cheap land or cheap . labor, or both combined, are what the American wheat-raiser has to contend against, and not the gold standard. The Argentine farmer can get fresh government land for n song, and hence does not have to put as much capital Into his farm as the Minnesota or Dakota farmer does. He pays less for farm labor, and hie transportation facilities are often better. Hence he can sell his grain more cheaply. The moment the Suez canal was opened the wheat-raisers of India, who already had cheap labor, got quick and cheap transportation, and became formidable competitors. Fill up the Suez canal and force them to send their wheat around the Cape of Good Hope, and they would cease to be such dangerous rivals. Give the wheat-raiser of the northwest deep-water transportation from Duluth to Liverpool, and he wouM get more for his wheat than he docs now. Tile American wheat-raiser has got to deal with the fact stated by Senator Peffer that wheat costs about 13 cents a bushel on the- India farm, largely because labor is so poorly paid there. It is estimated that it cdsts G5 cents to raise a bushel in New York or Penn- TIMETABLES. What this country needs In order to be more prosperous is more wages. Italy's wRgei have been coming down for 240 years, and today thousands of people in Italy are eating coarse bread, made of maize and of chestnuts. We cannot subsist on their food, nor would we want to. France today, as a nation, is dying out. What Frauc* needs is more wages. Let men have living wages, so they can afford to marry and renr children, and ther« will bo no talk of the French .nation dying out. It .Is the fenr of inability to support a family that deters most men from marriage.—Rev. 0. P. H. Graham. Hi-Ill Ion In America. The trouble with American religion Is that it has got so f»r beyond th« divine law that men leave It behind when they go Into business or public life. If we have in our land a republic of raving and roaring tigers, we must stock our stores and our caucuses, our boards of trade, and our council chambers, and our legislative halls, and our executive mansions with some of the righteousness of the divine law. Our Christianity needs to get a new Inspiration from the life of Its founder.— Rev. M. H. Harris. The Powor of the Gotjirl. • The power of the Gospel Is writ plain in all great moral enterprises. Its virtues have been tried In every department of individual and social life. We know what It Is capable of doing because we know what it has done. We know what it has done for the uplifting of the masses into a true liberty and brotherhood. We know what it has done for the elevation of woman, taking her from bondage ana from the Heragllo and, through her, teaching the whole world the true Ideals of womanhood and wifeliood and motherhood, We know how it affects social, industrial ami civil life. In all these directions Its power has been tried; and we may profit now by experience and observation of the past. Oor Life I'lnn. There is a definite plan for the life of every human being. He la girded, visibly or Invisibly, for some dxact thing, which it will -be the true significance of his life to have accomplished. God has a particular care for every man, a personal interest In him, anil sympathy for him and his trial's. If we have refused to do our part He calls us to the best thing left. He will choose for us the best end or uso possible, and will 'appoint .the beet possible means for obtaining It. Thare j« no room for discouragement or depression. Each incident, every exper- lence, whether dark or bright, has it Oar Tlir«ef"lil Nature. All men may be Included in three classes!, the intellectual or aesthetic, the logical, and the physical. To fill these classes JCBUE cornea as a Savior. To the aesthetic he is' an ideal, to the cultured he is an able instructor, to. the physical he is a God of power. He is revealed as a full Savior for our threefold nature. He will brine joy and delight to our Dner sensibilities, admiration and inspiration to our minds, and. strength and courage to our physical nature.—Rev. W. H. York. Church Work. What the early church may have done by no means determines what the church of today must do. If It could bo ever so exactly proved that the apostolic church were Congregational or Episcopal in form, It would not necessarily follow for a moment that the'church of today must be the >;ame. One of the primary facts to be kept In mind in all our church organizations is that Jesus left us no arbitrary instructions whatsoever as to the form in which we should do the work committed to us.-Rev. E. M, Chapman. (! rum! mot he fn- That household is blessed Indeed thai has in it a Christian grandmother. Over such a home angels hover, and in such a home God dwells.

We'll Teach.Them a Lesson In gentlna, or in any silver country. The workingmen in those countries get about enough wages in silver to pay for the food which the American workingmen's children give to their pet dog or cat. It there is any fact about which there Is no dispute, it Is.that the lowest wages and the poorest living tr» those of the workingmen in countries where the silver standard pre- NoV, one of two things must happen If the United States undertakes to coin 53 cents' worth o£ silver Into n legal tender dollar for everyone w-ho.has the to have it made-Into ,„, -the new silver dollars as much as gold dollars, be worth less. If they hold the same value that our dollars.have to-day, how are workingmen to get ony more of them for the &ame amount do not hold that val- „.„.., In what way are the W u,-»m 6 — K° in « to make up thc dfrfl " clt in the value of their wages? No one now seriously contends that silver dollars, or the treasury certificates representing such dollars, cou d £ nUtalned at a parity with gold under free and unlimited coinage. That job !• too big for even Uncle Sam to handle. The value of the do tor and BO tho value of wages, would inevitably fall, and it would fall badly. But, we are told, there is the poor farmer •who has a mortgage overdue and could pay it off so much more easily this cheap kind of dollars, enough; he could pay off his mortgage with the money which tbe workingmen loso in wages. This might be pleasant for the farmer, but Is it exactly clirer- lul for the workingmen?—Boston Post. they will receive more so-called dollars even if it will take two of them to purchase as much as one will buy now.

Well, then, you should go into the silver mining districts and behold It flourlshJng with vigor and luxuriance. The silver miner Is told, with free silver, wages will- go up.

How does the free silver farmer think this difference in the cost of production between America and India will be done away with by free coinage? Does he think the cost of labor will be increased in India, and not Increased here? Or does he think the cost of labor will be decreased here and not Increased in India? Does he expect to see the American farm laborer Injured or the laborer In India benefited? Free coinage will not Increase tha yield to the acre. It will not add to the Eiimber of wheat coneumers. It will do nothing to aid the farmer.

Opponail t" Mr. Bryan. Among other things to -which Mr. Bryan has declared himself to be opposed is national protection to the beet- sugar Industry. This man, who pretends to be the friend of the American people, does not want to see American industries developed, for he knows that with the revival and development of commerce and industry and consequent return o£ prosperity the op- nortunlty of the demagogue passes away. A contended, prosperous people has no inclination to listen to his rant. Had not the tariff policy of the present administration brought on llnaucial depression and consequent .hard times the silverltes would not have been ablo to spread their fallacious doctrines, lor none would have listened. But to return to tho protection ol American sugar. During the fiscal year ended in 1S95 this country imported 3,516,158,168 pounds of sugar valued at $74,829,794. During the latest fiscal year the amount of imported sugar was 3,708,874,766 pounds, valued at $83,866,200. There is no reason why all the sugar that Is consumed in this country should not be made from cane or beets raised In thla co'untry. The 1158,695,994 w,hich have been sent abroad to pay for the sugar which we Imported during two years should have been distributed among American farmers and manufacturers, of sugar, and they would have been if the Republican policy had been permitted to remain in force.
