CAVALRY LASSIES, Six SALVATION ARMY GIRLS BEGIN A CRUSADE. Will Curry the (Jotpcl fnto tho Kemote Region* of Fmins^lYinilu, Murylsml •n<l Oaliiwitro—Jir-Clrcns Quooii Among Them. IX Salvation Army lassies of Baltimore have formed a cavalry brigade and arc soon to begin to spread the gospel through Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware ou horseback. In the charges upon the hoses of sin these gallant women warriors wiu bo led by Capt. Blanche Cox, an equestrienne who won the plaudits of multitudes by her daring horseback riding in pink tights In a one-ring circus some years •ago, says the New York World, For Several weeks tic lassies have boon learning to ride. That was not so very difficult, as the ivar horses are graduates from street car linos with not enough, spirit even to attempt to buck or act unruly. It .was at, the first dress parade that tho lassies had trouble. Accustomed all their lives to the jingle and clack of bells the horses did not -.know quite how to act when they heard .the lively ting-a-llng- of tambourines and tho strumming of banjos. Some •of the horses thought it was a signal to go ahead and others regarded the sounds as a command to stop. A horse trainer, however, gave the animals a course of instruction so that We shall hear of fetes, where the principal feature will be the milking of cows by society women this summer, and many a flirtation, carried on over they now are quite tho equal of Sev- i the milk pail, will later on terminate enth cavalry mounts—as far as disclp- i in an engagement in the conservatory. MILADY 19 MILKING COWS. la the Lntoit pud In Souloly — Novel i Society's Litest fad. If wo may fcellove report, says milady is 'milking cows for iimusement and charily, says the Now York Herald. At a certain fashionable country scat the hostess, who is much interested in parish work, invented, or rather inaugurated, this lad for charitable purposes, with tho result that society has taken it up and for the moment the Holsteins and other breeds of cattle arc wondering what on earth is the matter. Bazaars may net. consi-J- •orabhi for the church, but 'to nee dainty daughters of society in picturesque costume or evening dress sitting on the lawn milking a gentle-eyed cow Is so great a i;ovolty every man .'or miles around will come and buy a glass of milk for sn-eot charity's sake, thereby swelling the receipts for milady's pet v/orlc. What the cows think of it cannot bo recorded. Their expression would lead one to suppose they feel highly honored. Milady's tapering fingers and deft manipulation of their udders does not lead them to suppose she is not an expert, nor can It be said she is not. As soon as milady is interested, languid and indolent as she roay seem, whatever Is a fad with her will quickly be learned. It was with some trepidation, however, . that the; milking of cows began. Every time' the cow looked around or switched her tail milady grew frightened and expected the pall to be kicked over. On one or two occasions tills did happen, to tho great amusement of the persons who stood around. Innumerable lawn V,HY PERSIA IS PEACEFUL. TEE SUNDAY SCHOOL. line Is concerned. When the captain plays on her banjo tho opening bars of "Break Away, Break Away from Sin!" the horses know it moans "Column four, guide right!" The weird •opening melody of "Hallelujah" means charge, and the soothing strains of "Kick out tho Devil" is understood by There is nothing more bewitching than two rounded arms, bared lo the elbow, two roguish eyes glancing up at you, a sensitive mouth smiling at you, and then you are lost—it may bo milk you are drinking at $5 a glass,but you don't c;ire.

Communications from Persia explain the remarkable quietude of the people j ami the absence of the usual attempts ; at rioting and assassination, notwith- : standing the violent removal of the j late shah, saya tho Edinburgh Scots- j man. For more titan a generation there has been in Persia little or none of the Mohammedan fanaticism which is at present foredooming-the more orthodox rule of the sultan of Turkey. The Shiah form of Islam, which prevails in Persia and ir. North India also; is considered a dangerous heresy by all other Mohammedans. The Persian MuJtahMs and Moollus are few In number, and even they are not unaffected by the growing Soofl belief, which saturates Persian literature and is really a form of Hidoo pantheism. Bishop Stuart, the Edinburgh citizen who has given his later years to continuing the works of Henry Martyn and Dr. Bruce at Isplian and Julia, as well as at Yezd and Kerman, finds the people open to the influence of medical missions and schools. What the Soofl mysticism began, in sapping tbe tenets of Islam, has of, late been continued to an even wider scale by the Babi faith, which is held intensely, though secretly, by .about 1,000,000-of-the-people. • -All Ba- bls are friendly to Christians. ' Islam is rapidly losing its hold on Persia. Occasionally when the church missionaries seem too openly active the paid Moollas try to excite the mob to terrify the converts, but they treat the bishop and his colleagues with profound respect, as their fathers treated Henry Martyn at Shiraz. Six converts from Islam have recently been baptized in Julfa alone In spite of the legal death penalty, and they are most effective agents among thei- IclnCrcd and countrymen. The large co.-a:' of Armenians in Julfa prospers auu <>*- vances in culture, sending out representatives to Calcutta, Bombay and the LESSON X, SEPTEMBER 6, DAVID'S LOVE OF GOD'S HOUSE.

One laddie will accompany the lassies, to look after the- animals. A email wagon, carrying supplies, advertising posters, ammunition and arms, will constitute the wagon train, i A pretty uniform has been chosen. The poke bonnet Is encircled by a yellow ribbon, tbe distinctive color or United States cavalry. The bluo shirt Waist is the • -me pattern as that worn •jby Swlvatlr-:;,-.Array infantry,, but the skirt—a regtlar riding habit—is of light material. ' A bicycle corps, to flght the devil, is organizing In Chelsea—the Hoboken ol Boston—under the direction o£ the Rev. J. P. Hazel, Tbe idea, Mr. Hazel said, came to him as an Inspiration from God, ; Groups of three or more riders will no from town to town preaching the iospel. Each group will have an advance man who will ride ahead and make, arrangements with tbe local authorities Tor the holding of meetings in squares and public places. 1 Those who join Mr. Hazel's organization will receive no compensation for their -work. The cyclers will be supported by the free-will offerings of their hearers. Hammocks and light cooking utensils wlll.be taken along, und the llle -will be mostly an outdoor one. Neither bloomers nor short slcirts •will be tolerated. Whether eastern people will refuse to listen to evangelists who preach In Dicycle garb is a question, but the experience of Dr. Hayes C. French, of San Francisco, in that line, is Interesting, Dr. French, while riding by Bethlehem church, decided to attend eervlce. He wore knickerbockers and ». sweater. As he entered .the church «he pastor invited him to make an address* Dr. French accepted and his appearance in bicycling costume In the iralpit mildly shocked the congrega- ttoa. sign, and then she is like a picture. Two or throe girls whose houses are adjoining -had the cows brought up noar the veranda and while milking them kept up a flre of conversation about the current events in society. Another time six society women devoted a morning to the "art" or milking. Six cows were led o-n the lawn and six men, who were experts, taught their mistresses bow to milk. Wha.t a sight for the bystander! In dainty muslin gowns, large picture hats, the milkmaid of society cuts a dash, as ehe does in everything. E.\hlMtn Ills WlTe» for Won«-r. A harem Is now on exhibition ID Berlin. A Parisian pasha, who was bankrupt, was induced to sacrifice his ideas ol the proper seclusion for a Ma- hometan family for a consideration, and he has moved his goods and chattels to Berlin, where they may be in- to Turkey.

Everybody stoppoti talking after a little while to see what the beloved "Charley" had to say. Bui all that be said was "Gentlemen, gentlemen!" It turned the tide of affairs that day almost as effectually as closing the stock exchange might have spccted by tho curious. The house has ! done.—Boston Transcript, been arranged so that without disturbing the Inmates their home life can be seen. The pasha exercised good judgment in the selection of his wives and many of them are of rare beauty. Thcro are a score of children, ranging from -t to 1C years, and a dozen female servants. Many of the wives are excellent musicians 'and play the piano and sing remarkably well. They also do fine needlework. They have become accustomed to tbe stares of strangers and pursue their usual household vocations as unconcernedly as if In Persia.

Since happiness is necessarily the supreme object of our desires, and duty the supreme rule of our actions, there can be no harmony in our being except our happiness coincides with our duty.—Whewell.
