THE MINE HORROE. 



KENTUCKY DEMOCRACY. 



motion wa* greeted by a perfect whirlwind of 
"ayes” and half a dozen "noes.” Chairman 
Carlisle apiwlnted the four defeated Guberna- 
torial candidates— Harris, Hines, Holt and 
Berry^a committee to escort the nominee to 
the halL 

ttta tufrroRit. 

The committee on resolutions, through its 
chairman, Ex-l.ieutenant*Governor James B. 
Cantrell, submitted the following platform: 

"We declare our conlldence in the integrity 
and conscientious devotion to duty of Grover 
Cleveland, and congratulate the country and 
the party upon the accession of a Demo- 
cratic National Administration, economic 
and clean; and we particularly applaud the 
President for the fidelity and courage with 
which he has protected the Treasury 
from pillage by his exercise of the 
veto power, and hereby pledge to him 
our confidence and support In the further dis- 
charge of the duties of his high office. We fa- 
vor such a reform of the Civil Service as will en- 
force a faithful performance by persons ap- 
pointed to office of all public duties intrusted to 
them, and to this end, as well as to a main- 
tenance of the spirit of our representative form 
of government, we demand the strictest meas- 
ure of personal and party responsibility, and 
arc opposed to the substitution in room of this 
of life tenure, a civil pension list and all other 
appendages of a bureaucratic system foreign to 
the genius of our institutions and people. 

"We deelare the honest money of the. Cpn- 
sUtutiou good enough for the people as ex- 
pressed in gold and silver and paper converti- 
ble into coin on demand. 

"We sympathize most earnestly with the 
people of Ireland in their struggle for local 
self-government, and we unite with the 
friends of liberal progress in all parts of the 
world in denouncing the coercion measure 
now pending- in the British Parliament as a 
monstrous crimp against a brave, generous 
and long-suffe^g people, an obstruction to 
human freedom, abhorrent to the spirit of 
liberty in every land. 

"We viewed with alarm the growing tendency 
among certain classes of citizens to seek the aid 
and bounty of the Federal Government, and as 
incident to this tendency to enlarge the powers 
granted, and so multiply powers never contem- 
plated by tlie Constitution, and we re-ossert 
the time-honored Democratic doctrine that all 
powers not delegated to the United States nor 
prohibited to the States, are reserved to the 
States respectively, or to the people. 

"We denounce the present war tanS, laid to 
confuse as well as to harass the people, as a 
masterpiece of injustice, incQuallty and false 
pretense. It has been maintained by a selfish 
and false theory of protection, which robe the 
many to enrich the few. It bos piled up in 
the National Treasury a surplus which iften- 
aces the prosperity of all classes and 
every in.lustry. We demand the immediate 
reduction of this war tariff, not merely as 
an act of redress to the people, promised by all 
par^M, but as the only safe and just methc^ of 
red flwig the surplus ; and In making such re- 
duction we demand for them that the taxes 
shall first be abolished or lowered upon the 
necessaries of life, and, finally, we reassert the 
constitutional and Democratic doctrine that the 
taxes should be levied exclusively for public 
purposes and limited to the requirements of 
Uie Government economically administered. 

"RfMOlrfd, That the action of the Democrats 
In the House of Representatives in reclaftning 
irom railroads and other corporations nearly 
100,000,000 acres of unearned land granted to 
them by the Republican party is heartily in- 
dorsed and approved. We approve of such 
legislation by Congress as shall effectually pro- 
tect the public land from alien ownership, and 
reserve the public domain as homesteads for the 
people. Not another acre should be granted to 
railroad or other corporations, or to specu- 
lators. 

“Rftolrfd, That freedom of labor is essential 
to the contentment and prosperity of the peo- 
ple. Workingmen should be protected against 
the oppression of combinations and monop- 
olies, and we recommend to the next General 
Assembly the passage of such laws as will 
guarantee to workingmen the most favorable 
oonditions for their labor in the matter of 
proper ventilation and other safe-guards for 
life and health in mines and factories, and 
that sore and proper payment of wages, 
and also suds laws as will facilitate the 

L -.Ulae*. y ,11 I ■I'll fl II immm^ 

Hon relating to the interests of labor, %nd pro- 
vide for the submission ot all questions of dis- 
pute between employer and employes under 
just regulations to impartial arbitration. 

'•Rttolred, That wc are opposed to the impor- 
tation of contract and ill -paid labor from abroad; 
the employment of young children in mines and 
factories, and now that the State is provided 
with sufficient penitentiary accommodations, 
we oppose any unfair competition of convict 
with free labor, and we favor the enactment and 
euforcementofsuch laws as will effectually carry 
out these views. 

"Sfolvtd, That we favor the development of 
all the resources of our State, and approve all 
efferts to advance the material prosperity and 
spread abroad the fame of our mineral wealth; 
that wc indorse all legitimate endeavors that 
may be made for the advantage of the State in 
Securing more good citizens and the investment 
of more capital in our midst. 

‘'That the Democratic party, in ccnventlon 
assembled, indorses the honest, faithful and 
economical administration of State affairs as 
conducted by our present distinguished Gov- 
ernor, J. Proctor Knott, and other State of- 
ficers.” 

Young Congressman Tanlbee. of the Eleventh 
district, submitted a minority report. The 
minority report simply moved that the first 
plank of the platform — the one indorsing 
the Administration — be stricken out. He took 
the floor in support ot his proposition, and 
in spite of repeated efforts to frown Um 
down held it for over half an hour. 
While Taulbee was speaking in support 
of th9 minority report the committee 
came in with General Buckner. The 

General wore a severely pladn suit of 
black broadcloth, and his snow-white hair 
was combed carefully back from his 
high, broad forehead. The entire assemblage 
arose at bis entrance, and cheer followed cheer 
like the billows ot the sea. The General re- 
turned his thanks in a neat little speech, while 
his young wife smiled npon him from a box. As 
the General concluded the band struck up 
“D^xie,” and the convention went wild with de- 
light. 

Taulbee again took the floor. He was still ad- 
vocating the adoption ot the minority report 
when, at a few minutes past midnight, a motion 
to adjourn until 9 o'clock in the morning went 
through with a whoop. 

SKCOHD DAT. 

EoDisrnxB. Kt., May 6.— The Democratic 
State Conventioi^pesumed its session this morn- 
ing, with Mr. Carlisle in the Chair. Discussion 
on the resolutions and platform was at once 
taken up. Congressman Taulbee at once ob- 
jected to the clause relating to President Cleve- 
land's veto of the pensions, and there was a 
lively disenssion between Taulbee and Hon. 
James McKenzie, present Secretary of State. 
Taulbee was Anally sat upon by the Convention, 
and the resolutkms, as drawn npby yk. Catlisle 
and Mr. Watterson, were finally adopted. 

The next business before the ebnvention was 
the nomination of a Lieutenant-Oovemor. 

Joseph B. Read, ot this city, who has been 
making a czmvass for this ofliee, arose promptly 
and said that in view of the primaries ot April 
n, he hod decided to withdraw from the race, 
and would wheel into line one of the bri^test 
and best young men of Kentucky— James W. 
Bryan, of Covington. 

' Mr. McKenzie then dominated Mr. Bryan. 
Judge Cleary, of Kenton, gave a hearty second 
to the nomination. 

Congressman Tanlbee nominated John T. 
Haselrigg, of Morgan County, and James D. 
Black, of Knox, gave a second. 

Bryan was noasinated on the first ballot. 
He received 697 l-« votes against IW 5d for Ha- 
selrigg. The nomination was made unanimous. 

Mr. Bryan was called ent aasld furious cheers. 
The young statesman said: "It has been 
charged that thnre has bean apathy in theDem- 
oeratie party of Kentncky. I think that I read 
in your honest faoes a refutation of that charge. 
I thank yon for the trust imposed in me, and I 
now pledge myself to disehsrge honestly and 
faithfully the dtarge you place upon me. I will 
see your fsges again before the August eleo- 



tvnat a Non-Intercourse Proclamatioo 
Would Do. 

Naw York, May 6. — The New York 
World correspondent at Montreal telo- 
graphs to that paper : There is a dee]^ 
seated feeling of uneasiness here among 
men having business relations with the 
United Htates — and these comprise a very 
large part of the community— lest Presi- 
dent Cleveland should issue a proclamatioa 
of non-intercourse with Canada. Baid a 
prominent lumber merchant: “If Presi- 
dent Cleveland should issue a non-inter- 
course proclamation, I believe it would 
bankrupt Canada witbiu six months.” 
This may be an extreme view of the mat- 
ter, but it afforded an indication of the 
strength of the feeling on the subject. 
There are about 3,700 persons from the 
United Btates resident in Montreal, many 
of whom are prominent in various lines of 
business, and nearly all of whom have bus- 
iness relations of more or less importance 
with the States. Another merchant, in 
answer to my question as to what would be 
the effect of a non-intercourse proclama- 
tion, said; "The first and most obvious 
effect would bo the stoppage of all our 
railroads that extended across the border. 
Then it would almost nilu the 
Navigation Company, which contiWs all 
the steamboat lines on the Stii'Lawrea^i^\^ 
and derives its most profitable busiuess 
from the American tourists who flock to 
Canada in the summer time. The princi- 
pal hotels, too, would lose the best and 
largest .part of their custom, and would, 
in all probability, be forced to close up. 

In short, the effects would be most disas- 
trous to us. Of course the establishment 
of mutually satisfactory commercial rela- 
tions is of a great deal more importance to 
us than to the people of the United 
States.” 



TIm Terrible Disaster at BahUpe— Cheer- 
ful Prediction of l,ot-al SeientUts. 

CiTT OF Mexico, May 8.— The Oovom- 
ment to-day received its first information 
regarding the disastrous earthquake on 
the 3d lust, at the town of Bahispe, in the 
District of Moctezuma, Sonora, by which 
one hundred, and fifty persons lost their 
bves. The earthquake occurred at 3:50 p.m. 
At the same time the volcanic eruptions 
began In the neighboring mountains, light- 
ing up the summits for a long distance. 
The prediction is made here by local scien- 
tists that Mexico is about to undergo a 
general seismic convulsion, ,and reoent 
records of earthquake shocks show that 
there is widespread volcanic activity from 
one end of Mexico to the other. 

Laredo, May 3. — Passengers arriving on 
the Monterey train report that great fires 
are raging on the summit of the moun- 
tains in many places ou both sides of the 
road. Whether these fires have any con- 
nection with the recent earthquake dis- 
turbances in Arizona and New Mexiuo is 
yet to be determined, as the tops of those 
mountains are almost inaccessible.

Nanimo, B. C., May 6.— The greatest grief 
prevails throughout this city. About 170 
men were killed in the recent disaster. Of 
these 105 are white and the rest Chinese. 
Thirty-five bodies were recovered to-day. 
All of them had been killed by the fatal 
fire - damp. They had made desperate 
efforts to escape, as was evidenced by 
coats thrown over their heads to keep 
off the flames. Many of them were a 
long way from the stations. Any hope 
that was held out for the ba'ance of the 
men has vanished. They will probably 
be burned beyond recognition and will 
only be known by the places they were 
found in. The fire is almost under control 
now, and if all 'goes well will soon be ex- 
tinguished. Forty-seven bodies are left, 
and a large number of children are father- 
less. Assistance is urgently needed, and 
Ak-la hoppd that those more happily situ- 
ated will give of their abv-uddnee to the 
poor suffering and bereaved people who 
are left destitute in this city. Relief 
parties are being organized and contribu- 
tions are coming in.

Valuable Scientific Discoveries. 

Meadvii.i.k, Pa., May6. — Dr. C. C. Car- 
roll, of this city, after years of experiment, 
has discovered a method by which alum- 
inum can bo cast, soldered and welded. It 
is claimed by metallurgists and artisans 
that this is a very valuable iuvention, 
since it insures the use of aluminum 
for many purposes on account of 
its extreme lightness, strength and 
non-oxidation by exposure. It is alpeady 
successfully employed in the manufao- 
ture of dental plates, for which it is ap- 
parently admirably adapted. In the course 
of his experimenting Dr. Carroll believes 
he has also discovered the law gqvorning 
the disintegration of iron stringers em- 
ployed in the construction of railroad 
bridges.

A Terrific Storm.* 

Pittsbcbod, May 6.— A thunder-storm, 
accompanied by heavy hail and wind 
equal to a hurricane, passed over the Al- 
legheny Mountains in eastern Somerset 
aud western Bedford Counties between 
seven and eight o'clock last evening. A 
few moments before the storm came a 
roaring like the discharge of so many can- 
non was heard in the distance, and as 
soon as the clouds rolled across the sky 
the roaring increased. I'he storm struck 
the mountains moving in a northwesterly 
direction, and was about a quartdT of a 
mile wide. For two miles the large trees 
were twisted off like straws, and every 
thing in its path ironed onto the earth. In 
some instances immense trees were 
caught up aud carried several hundred 
feet into the air, and burle.1 back.again 
with such swiftness that can not be de- 
scribed.

Cowan, of Venango County, once refused 
$10,000, was sold by him to an Oil City

poses, for a period of fifteen years at ten 
per cent. i er annum. If this is done it is

CoNNnr.i.svii.LE, Pa., May 6. — About 100 
Hungarians in tho Mount Pleasant coke 
district left yesterday for their native 
land. A largo number have purchased 
tickets here. 'I'hoy say that the strike will 
last five or six months, and that they can 
live clieaper during that time by going to 
their own country and returning at the 
end of the strike. There is no change in 
the situation to-day. 

Shortage in Ohio’s Wheat Crop. 

CoLi'Mnus, O., May 6.— From 700 corre- 
spondents it is shown that there will be a 
falling off in the Ohio wheat crop this year. 
Tlio wheat crop of 1880 was 40,506,863 
bushels, which was about a full average 
crop. The present prospect for the crop of 
1887 is 2.5,400,000 bushels, a shortage of 30 
per cent., compared with a fair average 
crop. Favorable weather may increase 
tills estimate.

Westchester County, this State, rendered 
a decision yesterday, that the estate of a 
deceased person is not appraisable for the 
purpose of State tax. Persons in the lil-

about $250,000, ah the estate left to the 
fund is said to be worth $5,000,000, and the 
tax is five per cent.

ment ou the site of Pickett’s charge. The

I am thinking to-day ot my youth 
And Its air-castles bright and fair, 

When the world was foU of tinth 
And deceit was a thing most rare. 

Of the maiden I fondly loved, 

A vision of beanty and light, 

In whose presence I strangely was moved 
And filled with a sense of delight. 

Of the men of my youthful dreams 
Who were pillars of love and truth. 

But ah ! 1 have learned many things 
Since those halcyon days of yonth. 

Then the world was a world of love, 

Twas a Oarden of Eden fair. 

Filled with flowers thro’ which to rove 
Breathing perfnme upon the soft air. 

Bat to-day as 1 sit and dream 
Under the bine of the sky. 

About me on every hand' 

My youth's atr-casUes lie. 

Shattered and sundered by time. 

By the lapse of a score of years. 

By winds from u stormy clime. 

By blasts from the vale of tears. 

And the maiden I fondly loved 
Is laid away in the tomb. 

And over her grass-grown grave 
The roses and Hites bloom. 

And the years of which I dreamed 
With her as my loving wife. 

Have been passed wltli a heavy heart 
And a lonely saddened life. 

And the pillars of love and tmih. 

The men of my youthful dreams, 

Have swindled me oft since my youth 
With deceit and cunning schemes. 

And the world of blooms and flowers 
Has been filled with sneers anil scorns. 
And my beautiful blossoming bowers 
Have been filled with thistles and thorna 

And Instead of glory and fame 
And positions of honor and trust, 

; licaroe any have heard of my name 
I And I Btlll plod along in the dpst. 

I Bat oat ot tbo darkness and clonds 
! Ttiorgbeaiheth a inininous light, 

^ When lIoiA wltblB''nfh and find 
I have ever done that Is right.

There are times that I am sadden’d : 
When I’m left atone 
In my silent, lonesome chamber. 
When every one is gone. 

And the wind is ceaseless moaning 
In mournful monotone. 

There a^ times that I am sadden’d : 
When I look down to the sky. 

And dark clouds are spread across it. 
No star is seen on high — 

Not a light is seen to cheer me — 

All dreary to my eye. 

There are times that I am sadden’d : 
To think of days ago. 

When bitter care was far away. 

With all its grief and woe — 

I would I were a child again, 

A mother’s smiles to know . 

There are times that I am sadden'd : 
When looking on life’s sea. 

To know not if a shoal lie hid 
To wreck my bark and me ; 

To see what cloud hangs over all 
And shades eternity. 

There are times that I am sadden'd 1 
When those of youthful day. 
Though familiarly I call them, 

Make answer not so gay ; 

Ah f but few are now remaining — 
Most all have passed away. 

There are times that I am sadden’d : 
When leaves of autum fade. 

To see Nature’s beaut’es dying. 

As if for this were made ; 

They are passing like earth’s cliidren 
All soon in death are laid. 

There are times that I am sadden’d : 
When from the eaves the rain 
H slowly, ever sadly dripping, 
beating ’gainst my pane ;

In some neighborhoods in tbe rural 
districts, the country iluctor with his 
saddle bags, and general rusticity, was 
conaidered an important personage. 
But bis occupation’s gone. When a 
remedy ia needed for coughs, colds and 
diseases of tbe tliroat and lungs the 
only care for them Canasens’ Honey of 
Tar, is readily obtained, used, and per- 
manent relief secured. 

Once upon 'a time and not along time 
ago either a man sufTeriug with piles 
thought there would never be au end to 
bis agony. But Tabler’s Buckeye Pile 
Ointment dispelled that idea complete 
ly . To-day be is a healthier aud wiser 
man, recommending to all sufferers 
with piles, tile use of tbis Jocomparable 
remedy. “Go tbou and do likewise.” 

Our advice to you is not to catcii n 
cold if you can help it, but having 
caught it rid yourself of it promptly by 
using tbe remedy known all over tbe 
world as Couasena’ Honey of Tar, a 
simple preparlion equaled by none for 
parity and efficacy. When need accord, 
ing to direotiona a positive cure is ef. 
fected for coughs, colds, aud diseases of 
throat and luugs.

At the August election the 
question of holding a constitu- 
tional convention will be again 
submitted to the people. This 
question has been voted upon 
several times but it has been un- 
able to receive the required ma- 
jority, partly due to the ignorance 
of the voters. The question 
should be discussed and explained 
so that all may understand the 
necessity of a revision of our con- 
stitutiou. Let our public speak- 
ers remember this when they take 
the stump for varions candidates. 
The people of Kentucky want a 
change. They want our State to 
go forward in all those things that 
constitute her progress. We need 
more a change in our constitution 
than we do a change of parties 
of. ^ofi^cers. The

WouUr throwbfi in vain. 

There are times that I am sedden’d : 
When looking down Jife’s vale. 

And see how little has been done, 

And know I yet may fail — 

For I’ve learned Uurt dieappointment 
May come on every gale. 

There are times that I am sadden’d : 
And often heave a sigh. 

While bright joy and life are ’round me. 
Yet can not tell you why — 

Only I’m sad because I’m sad — 

No reason olse have I.

I am thinking to-day of my youth 
And Its alr-caatles briiBit and fair, 

'When the world was foU of tinth 
And deoelt was a thing moat rare. 

Of the maiden X fondly loved, 

A vision of beanty and light. 

In whom presence I strangely was moved 
And filled with s sense of deligiit. 

Of the men of my yonthful dreams 
Who were pillars of love and truth. 

But ah ! I have learned many things 
Since those halcyon days of youth. 

Then the world was a world of love, 

Twas a Oarden of Eden fair. 

Filled with flowers thro’ which to rove 
Breathing perfume upon the soft air. 

But to-day as 1 sit and dream 
Under the bine of the sky, 

About me oil every hand' 

My youth's air-castles lie. 

Shattered and sundered by time. 

By the lapse of a score of years. 

By winds from a stormy dime. 

By blasts from the vale of tears. 

And the maiden I fondly loved 
Is laid away In the tomb. 

And over her grass-grown grave 
The roses and lilies bloom. 

And the years of which I dreamed 
With her as my loving wife. 

Have been passed with a heavy heart 
And a lonely saddened life. 

And the pillars of love and truth. 

The men of my youthful dreams, 

Have swindled me oft since my youth 
With deceit and cunning schemes. 

And the world of blooms and flowers 
Has been fllied with sneers and scorns, 
And my beautiful blossoming bowers 
Have been fllied with thistles and thorns. 

And Instead of glory and fame 
And positions of liouor and trust, 
iicaro* any have heard of my name 
And 1 sUll plod along in the dpst. 

Bat oat of tb* darkness and clonds 
ThamheajneUi a luiuinons light. 

When I4ook wltliln'iidh and Bud 
I have ever done that Is right.

Tub Democratic convention 
'which assembled at Loaisville last 
week nominated Gen. Simon B. 
Buckner . for Governor, Senator 
John D. Harris, in a very grace- 
ful speech, withdrew from 
the race and moved the nomi- 
nation of Gen .Buckner by accla- 
mation which was carried amid 
the greatest enthusiasm. We 
have hitherto been for Harris ; we 
are now for Buckner. We be- 
lieve the old hero will receive the 
entire vote of lus party, as all 
seem perfectly satisfied with the 
result and those who a short while 
ago were against him are now 
enthusiastic in his cause and the 
the cause of Democracy.

There are times that I am sadden’d : 
When I’m left alone 
In my silent, lonesome chamber, 
When every one is gone, 

And the wind is ceaseless moaning 
In mournful monotone. 

There aif times that I am sadden’d : 
When I look down to the sky. 

And dark clouds are spread across it, 
No star is seen on high — 

Not a ligi»t is Keen to cheer me — 

All dreary to my C3-c. 

• 

There are times that I am sadden’d : 
To think of days ago. 

When bitter care was far away. 

With all its grief and woe — 

I would I were a child again, 

A mother’s smiles to know. 

There arc times that I am sadden'd : 
When looking on life’s sea. 

To know not if a shoal lie hid 
To wreck my bark and me ; 

To sec what cloud hangs over all 
And shades eternity. 

There are times that I am sadden’d c 
When those of ymithful day. 
Though familiarly I call them. 

Make answer not so gay ; 

Ah ! but few are now remaining — 
Most all have passed awaj-. 

There are times that I am sadden’d : 
When leaves of autum fade. 

To sec Nature's beaut’es dying. 

As if for this were made ; 

They are passing like earth’s chidren 
All soon in death are laid. 

There are times that I am sadden’d : 
When from the eaves the rain

beating ’gainst my pane ;

MISCELLANEOUS 



In some neighborhoods in tbe ruraj 
districts, the country doctor with his 
saddle bags, and general rusticity, was 
considered an important personage. 
But bis occupatiou’s gone. When a 
remedy is needed for cougbs, colds aud 
diseases of tbe Uiroat and lungs tlie 
only cure for them Conaseos’ Houey of 
’Tar, is readily obtained, used, aud per- 
manent relief secured. 

Once npou’a time and not a long time 
ago either a man sufleriug with piles 
thought there would never be an end to 
bis agony. But Tabler’s Buckei’e Pile 
Ointment dispelled that idea complete 
ly . To-day be is a healthier aud wiser 
man, recommending to all sufferers 
with piles, the use of this incomparable 
remedy. “Go tbou aud do likewise.” 

Our advice to yon is not to catch a 
cold if you can help it, but having 
caught it rid yourself of it promptly by 
using the remedy known all over the 
world as Cooasens’ Hooey of Tar, a 
simple prepartion equaled by noue for 
purity and efficacy. When used accord, 
log to direotioos a positive cure is ef. 
fected for coughs, colds, and diseases of 
throat and lungs.

At the August election the 
question of holding a constitu- 
tional convention will be again 
submitted to the people. This 
question has been voted upon 
several times but it has been un- 
able to receive the required ma- 
jority, partly due to the ignorance 
of the voters. The question 
should be discussed and explained 
so that all may understand the 
necessity of a revision of our con- 
stitution. Let our public speak- 
ers remember this when they take 
the stump for various candidates. 
The people of Kentucky want a 
change. They want our State to 
go forward in all those things that 
constitnte her progress. We need 
more a change in our constitution 
than we do a change of parties 
or a ohauge of o^icers. Tbe

There are times that 1 am sedden’d : 
'When looking down-Nfe's vale. 

And see how little has been done, 

And know I yet may fail — 

For I’ve learned that disappointment 
May come on every gale. 

There are times that I am sadden’d : 
And often heave a sigh, 

While bright joy and life are ’round me. 
Yet can not tell 3'ou whj- —

Tbe practical topics specially treated 
are fruits painted in oils, flower paint- 
ing on china, sketches from nature, 
and wall and floor decorations ; there 
is also a timely “talk” on fitting up 
a seaside cottage. The department 
of “Books Old and New” is unuauaily 
interesting to bibliophiles this month, 
and he whole number is an admirable

Stonewall Jackson, Jr., 

Will make the season of 1887 at our stable 
at Kirksville, Madison County, Ky., and 
.will be permitted to serve marcs at fio 
THR -SEASON or $ic To Insure A 
Living Colt. The splendid record that 
Stonewall Jackson, Jk , ha* made in 
the fair rings, combined with sale of his 
colts, stamps him as one of the grandest 
sires in liie State. To show the estimate 
of his breeding, we have the record to 
prove that five of his colts r^sed by the 
Messrs. Harris, have been sola for f3,3of  
while a number of colts belonging to 
other parties have sold from $200 to $1,500. 
Stonkwm.i. Jackson, Jr., stands full 16 
hands high, bMutifiil bay color, magnifi- 
cent carriage and action, and shows in the 
stable lot just as well as he does in the 
fair ring. He was sired by Stonewall 
I Jackson, 1st dam 'Belle, bv Mes»enger, J r., 

I 2d dam Sallie Cook, by Helm’s Yoikshirc, 
3d darn Bob Mosby’s race mare, by I lain-

seen that he has the blood necessary to 
make him what he is : — Tlie great and

TEMPTATION. 



FARM A ND F IRESIDE. 

^Feed growing chickens all they 

will eat. 

— Potatoes marketed immediately 
after digging at forty cents will give 
more profit than if held over until 
spring and sold at fifty cents. 

—To make papicr mache for fine 
small work, bojl clippings of brown or 
white paper in water, beat them iftto a 
paste, add glue or gum, and size and 
press into oiled molds. 

— ^The West needs to copy the 
Easterner’s method of sheltering and 
caring for sheep, says the American 
Stock Breeder, while the latter wants 
to get some of the hardiness possessed 
by range sheep into his flock.. 

— Quick Cake: Four eggs, two cups 
of sugar, one cup of milk, three citps of 
fionr, two teaspoonfiils of cream of 
tartar and one teaspoonful of soda; 
flavor with lemon. Put all together in 
a dish before beating and let it stand 
in the tin after baking until ready for 
use. Bake in a quick oveiv — Boston 
Budget. 

— To get the oil out of a grindstone 
make the stone as hot as safety will 
permit, and then cover it with a paste 
of whiting and water. The mixture 
will soon become filled with oil, when 
it may be scraped oflF and ♦he process 
repeated until all the oil is extracted. — 
N. O. Times-Democrat. 

— Oil-cloths should not be scrubbed 
or soaped; wipe them first with a damp 
cloth and then with a dry one; occa- 
sionally a little milk and water may be 
used to brighten them, and if the pat- 
tern is worn off while the cloth is still 
good, they can be painted like a wootlen 
floor. — Farm, Field and Stockman. 

— Only good work pays. To do good 
work one needs good tools. The man 
who does good work gets large crops 
and makes the most money. Work may 
thought good until one sees some 
that is ^ttcr; and until the best work 
is seen and done the farmer should 
never be satisfied . — National View. 

— Every thing seems to be in f.avor of 
making s])ecialists of farmers, and those 
who fail to adapt themselves to the new 
order of things will apparently find 
themselves in time hard pnshe l by our 
western speci.alists, who year after year 
are taking up new branches of farming, 
and spending their whole time, money 
and attention in developing them to 
their utmost. — Oeo. E. Walsh. 

— Dressed Eggs: Boil the eggs h&rd, 
and, when cool, peel and divide the 
whites carefully, cutting the long way 
and placing the pieces in pairs on a 
dish. Mash the yelks with a small 
quantity of butter and minced ham, 
soasom^ highly wth salt, pepper and 
mustard, and, rolling into small balls, 
place in the cavities of the whites .and 
cloM BO M to resemble whole eggs. — 
OUeago BeraUl. 

— BTemge life of a worker bee is 
onlj^orty-fire days. Estimating that 
loaaea of baea occur from birds, spiders, 
storms and other canscs, the queen must 
be busy laying eggs in order to keep the 
number to the maximum. It is ’there- 
fore best not to allow frequent swarm- 
ing. This may be prevented b}* cutting 
out the queen ccll.s. By allowing plenty 
of room in the hive there will be less 
inducement to swarm. A strong colon}' 
is better than two weak ones. — St. Louis 
Republican. 

POULTRY SUGGESTIONS 

Points to lie Considered bj Purchasers ol 
Panoy Fowls and Kggu. 

If yon contemplate bujing eggs or 
birds first find out, if you can, who has 
what you want, the best of the kind you 
propose to purchase, send what money 
you wish to invest and ask the seller to

quality even if a small quantity. If 
order fowls don't copy the description 
from books, and then add that you will 
not pay a fancy price. If yon send 
feathers to show the average color of 
your pullcte don't pluck them from a 
hen or send a feather from one section j 
of a bird and claim it came from an- j 
other, because most breeders, especially 
the older ones are expert enough to 
know the prohnbilittes in the case, j 
Don't expect every man to tell you he 
has the best on earth, because that dc- ^ 
Bcriplion has been copyrighted, and the j 
copyright is held by only a few and is 
their capital on which they do busi- 
ness. Don't take too much stock 
in the man who says nobody else has 
any good birds; the ch.anccs are, two to 
one, such a fellow will sneak around to 
get .some one else to buy some birds for 
him from the same stock he is crying 
down, because he knows it is better 
than his own. When you find two or 
three trj'ing to injure one, bet your 
bottom dollar it is like the man who 
is industrious and frugal, and finally 
gets into business on his own account, 
saves his money, gets a comfortable 
home, and takes his family to ride oc- 
casionally after he can afford it, and 
than his former associates meet in some 
saloon and pass resolutions that capital 
is opposing labor and be must be “boy- 
cotted. ” 

Some w'ill ridicule him bec.ause he 
was poor once, more blame him because 
he is rich now, others because he is an 
enterprising man and successful, but 
remember it is always the under cat 
that has the advantage in a fight. Men 
who study to pull down the fame of 
others arc men of appetite rather th an 
intellect, their brains would have as 
much room in a peanut -shell as a frog 
would in the Atlantic ocean. If one is 
more anxious to use policy instead of 
principle, it is good policy to be decent, 
to be fair, honest and generous. If asked 
about the stock of another, who has 
your kind of fowls, speak well of them 
if you possibly can without lying, but 
be careful about speaking ill of them 
under any circumstances. It is bettor

There was something at o"®® comio 
and pathetic in the ban- 

quet which was served np Boston. 
Distinguished Republicans from  mt- 
side the State had been mvited, but 
with remarkable imaniinity they all 
declined to attend. This threw the 
burden of speechmaking upon Senatow 
Dawes and Hoar, and they imptwed it 
to a most wearisome length. ^ e can 
conceive of no more heartless use of a 
banquet than to entice several hundred 
men to it, and then to turn loose upon 
them two such lugubrious orators as 
Dawes and Hoar. They both stood np 
and said at great length the same 
things that they had been saying with 
more or less fullness for the past five 
or ten years. There was not a^ ray of 
freshness or a gleam of a new idea in 
either speech from beginning to end.

nights, the weary body, the exhausted 
mind, the Awful cross, the solemn grave — 
then he will forgetyou, but notuntil then. 

Often when we were in trouble wo 
sent for our friends ; but they were 
far away, they could not get to us. 
We wrote to *them: “Como right 

away,” or telegraphed, “Take the next 
train.” They came at last, yet were 
a great while in coming, or, perhaps, were 
too late. But Christ is always near — be- 
fore you, behind you, within you. No 
mother ever threfifi her arms around her 
child with such warmth and ecstasy ol 
affection as Christ has shown toward you. 
Close at hand — hearer than the staff upon 
which you lean, nearer than the cup you 
put to your lip, nearer than the handker- 
chief with which you wipe away your tears 
— I preach Him au ever-present, all-sympa- 
thizing, compassionate Jesus. How can 
you stay away one moment from Him with 
your griefs? Go now and tell Jesus. 

It is . often that^ our f riends have no 
power to relieve us. They would very 
much like to do it, but they can not disen- 
tangle our finances, they can not cure our 
sickness or raise our dead ; but glory be 
to God that He to whom the disciples went 
has all power in Heaven and on earth, and 
at our call He will balk our calamities, 
and, at just the right time, in the presence 
of an applauding earth and a resounding 
Heaven, will raise our dead. He will do 
it. He is mightier than Herod. He is 
swifter than the storm. He is grander 
than the sea. He is vaster than eternity. 
And every sword of God’s omnipotence 
will leap from its scabbard, and all the 
resources of infinity be exhausted, rather 
than that God’s child shall not be delivered 
. when he cries to Him for rescue. 

Suppose your child was in trouble. How 
mtu-h wpnl^ yon endure to got him out? 
You would go through any hardship. You 
would say; ‘T don’t care what it will 
cost, I must get him out of that trouble.” 

Do you think that God is not sc good a 
father as you! Seeing you in trouble, and 
having all power, will He not stretch out 
His arm and deliver you } He will. He 
is mighty to save. He can level the 
mountain and divide the sea and can ex- 
tinguish the fire and save the soul. 
Not dim of eye, not weak of arm, not 
feeble of resources, but with all eternity 
and the universe at His feet. Go and tell 
Jesus. Will you! Ye whose chocks are 
wet with the night-dew of the grave ; ye 
who c^p not look up ; ye whose hearts are 
dried with the breath of a sirocco; in the 
uaino of the religion of Jesus Christ, 
which lifts every burden, and wipes away 
every tear, and delivers every captive, 
and lightens every darkness, 1 implore you 
now, go and tell Jesus. 

A little child went with her father, a sea 
captain, to sea, and when the first storm 
came the little child was very much frigh^ 
ened, and in the night rushed out of the 
cabin and said: “Where is father! Where 
is father!” Then they told her: “Father 
ia on deck guiding the vessel and watching 
th« storm.” The little child immediately 
returned to her berth and said: “It’s all 
right, for father’s on deck.” Oh, yo 
who are tossed and driven in this world, 
up by the mountains and down by the val- 
leys, and at your wits’ end, I want you to 
know the Lord God is guiding the ship. 
Your Father is on deck. He will bring 
you through the darkness into the harbor. 
Trust in the Lord. Go and tell Jesus. Lei 
me say that if you do not you will have no 
comfort here, and you will forever bo an 
outcast and a wanderer. Your death will 
be a sorrow. Your eternity will be a dis- 
aster. 



'Brooki,tx, May 8. — ^Dr. Talmage’s text 
to-day was: “And His disciples went and 
told Jesus.”— Matthew xiv., 13. Ho said : 
An outrageous assassination had just 
taken place. To appease a revengeful 
-woman King Herod ordered the death of 
hat noble, self-sacrificing Christian, John 
the Baptist. The group of the disciples 
were thrown into grief and dismay. There 
was no authority to which they could ap- 
appeal, and yet grief must always find ex- 
pression. If there be no humkn ear to 
hear it, then the agonized soul will cry it 
aloud to the winds and the woods and the 
waters. But there -was an ear that was 
willing to listen. There ifi a tender 
pathos, and at the esame time a most 
admirable picture, in the words of my text : 
“They went and told Jesus.” He could 
understand all their grief, and He immedi- 
ately soothed it. Our burdens are not 
more than half so heavy to carry if another 
is thmst under the other end of them. 
Heye we find Christ, His brow shadowed 
with grief, standing amid the group of 
disciples, who, with tears and violent ges- 
ticulations, and wringing of hands, and 
outcry of Jaereavement, are expressing 
their woe.* Kaphael, with his skillful 
brush putting upon the wall of a palace 
some . scene of sacred story, gave not so 
skillful a stroke as when the plain hand of 
the evangelist writes: “They went and 
toldAesus.” 

The old Gotha and Vandals once came 
down upon Italy from the north of Europe, 
and they upset the gardens, and they broke 
do-wn the altars and swept away every 
thing that was good and beautiful. So 
, there is ever and .anon in the hisiomof 
- aOl aangnters or Our race an 

in^rsioA of rough-handed troubles that 
co ^ fo plunder and ransack and put to the 
torch all that men highly prize. There is 
no cave so deeply cleft into the mountain as 
to allow us shelter, and the foot of the 
fleetest courser can not bear us beyond 
pursuit. The arrows they put to the 
string fly with unerring dart, until we fall 
pierced and stunned. 

1 feel that I bring to you a most appro- 
priate message. 1 mean to bind up all your 
griefs into a bundle, and set them on fire 
with a spark from God’s altar. The same 
prescription that cured the sorrow of the 
disciples will cuib all your heartaches. I 
have read that when Godfrey and his army 
marched out to capture Jerusalem, as they 
came over the bills, at the first flash of the 
pinnacles of that beautiful city the army, 

• that had marched in silence, lifted a shout 
that made the earth tremble. O, you sol- 
diers of Jesus Christ, marching on toward 
Heaven, I would that to-day, by some 
gleam from the palace of God’s mercy and 
God’s strength, you might be lifted into 
great rejoicing, and that before this ser- 
vice is ended you might raise one glad ho- 
zanua to the Lord ! 

In the first place, I commend the be- 
havior of these disciples to all those in the 
audience who are sinful and uupardoned. 
There comes a time in almost every man’s 
history when he feels from some source 
that he has an erring nature. The thought 
may not have such heft as to fell him. It 
may be only like the flash in an even ing 
cloud just after a very hot summer day. 
One man to get rid of that impression will 
go to prayer; another will stimulate him- 
self by ardent spirits, and another man 
will dive deeper into secularities. But 
some times a man can not get rid of these 
mpressions. The fact is, when a man 
finds out that his eternity is poised upon a 
perfect uncertainty, and that the next 
movement his foot may slip, he must do 
some thing violent to make himself forget 
where he stands, or else riy for refuge. ^ 

If there are any here -who have resolved 
that they would rather die of this awful 
cancer of sin than to have the heavenly 
surgeon cut it out, let me say, my dear 
brother, you mingle for yourself a bitter 
cup. 

You fly in the face of your everlasting 
intCi'csts. You crouch under a yoke and 
you bite the dust, when this moment you 
might rise up a crowned conqueror. 
DrivCn and perplexed and harassed as you 
have been by sin, go and tell Jesus. To 
relax the grip of death from your soul and 
plant your unshackled feet upon the 
golden throne, Christ let the tortures of 
the blqody mount transfix Him. "With the 
beam of His own cross Re will break 
down the door of your dungeon. From 
the thorns of His own crown He will pick 
enough gems to make your brow blaze 
with eternal victory. In every tear on His 
wet cheek, in every gash of His side, in 
every long, blackening mark of laceration 
from shoulder to shoulder, in the grave- 
shattering, Heaven-storming death groan, 

1 hear Him say: “Him that comoth unto 
Me I will in no wise cast out.” 

“Oh,” but you say, “instead of curing 
my wound you want to make another 
wound, namely, that of conviction!” Have 
you never known a surgeon to come and 
fin^ a chronic disease and then with sharp 
caustic burn it all out! Bo the grace of 
God comes to the old sore of sin. It has 
long been rankling there, but by Divine 
grace it is burned out through those fires 
of conviction ; “the flesh coming again as 
the flesh of a little child;” “where sin 
abounded grace much more aboundeth.” 
With the ten thousand unpardoned sins of 
your life go and tell Jesus. You will never 
get rid of your sins in any other way; and 
remember that the broad invitation which 
I extend to you will not always be ex- 
tended. 

King Alfred, before modern time-pieces 
were invented, used to divide the day into 
thi'ee parts, eight hours each, and then had 
three wax-candles. By the time the first 
candle had burned to the socket, eight 
-hours had gone, and when the second can- 
dle had burned to the socket, another eight 
hours had gone, and when all three candles 
were gone outth  n the day had passed. Oh,

The quality of Mr. Dawe’s speech can 
be inferred by the following- sample 
from his introductory remarks: “The 

atmospher.e we are Ijresthing here to- 
day is so surcharged with genuine Re- 
publicanism that there can be little 
need of either tonics or stimulants. 
The spirit of the oldefitime is upon lis 
again. The cause is Again, as of old, 
paramount, and the individual sulxir- 
dinate. I congratulate the Republican 
party of Massachusetts, so largely 
represented here to-dfl(y, upon the har- 
mony and earnestness everywhere 
manifest — sure precui*ors of success.” 

Mr. Hoar's speech was in the same 
lino, as the following familiar passage 
will show: “The Democratic party 

represents and is controRod by the 
opinions and parMSSS as ' Ikejr are to- 
day of the men nAo tA' Wty JTcars ago 
thought rebafiti^jt ^ ssie * aadtslavery 
were right, and the RepoMIcan party 
represents and Is coBtroUed by the 
opinions and purposes as they are to- 
day of the imen who twenty years ago 
thought rebellion, secession and slave- 
ry were wtong.” \fter an hour or 
more of th» kind of oratory, other 
brief speeches were made, and then 
Mr. Henry C^ot Lodge, -with the late 
untoward re.^lt in Rhode Island in 
mind, qnoted Fith depressing effect: 

I bold it tni|h with him who singa. 

To one rlearharp in divers tones. 

That men m«y rise on stepping stones 
Ot their dead selves to higher things. 

This confession that the party was 
dead was receitod in silence, and Mr. 
Lodge went on to explain that its 
death was merely seeming, that it has 
suffered disaster chiefly because of the 
“petty personal dislike which is shown 
towai^s candidates.” Mr. Lodge's 
stepping-stone of llio party’s dead self 
is not high princi|ie, but loyalty to the 
candidate, no matter what his rharac- 
tor. He is going to help the party to 
rise to “higher things” by re-electing 
Governor Ames next fall, and by wag- 
ing unrelenting war upon all Inde- 
pendents and reformers of whatever 
name or character. — N. Y. Post,

A POLITICAL BLUNDER. 

Mr. Blaine’s Earopraa Toar and Rotam 

Arranged Upon the Sappaeltlon Thnt Ua 

la a Great Man. 

There is a measure of method in the 
arrangements for Mr. Blaine's Eu- 
ropean tour that challenges admira- 
tion. The fact that it is to be to some 
extent an imitation of the Grant trip 
of eight years ago in no wise detracts 
from its value as an electioneering 
scheme, though th« signal failure of 
the third term enterprise suggests a 
doubt as to the avtilability of foreign 
excursions with pyrotechnic accom- 
paniments as a niklium of wheedling 
American politiciaas into questionable 
movements. 

According to cui^ent rumors Senator 
Hale will be the oftnpanion of the tat- 
tooed historian, and he will no doubt 
serve as a sort of advance agent or 
business manager, ut toe enterprise. 
They will depart s^e time ^ring tlio 
coming fall and trarcl through tho va- 
rious interesting sections of continental 
Europe and thence through Japan and 
China, timing the return so as to ar- 
rive in San Frandaco just about the 
time the Republicfin National conven- 
tion assembles, fhe only departure 
from the Grant programme is in the 
time of arriving home. It is generally 
admitted that Grant got backtoo soon. 
In other words, that the period I e- 
tween the arrival at the Golden Gate 
and the call of the roll for balloting in 
the convention afforded time for a re- 
action in public sentiment. 

The mangers of the Blaine hippo- 
drome propose to profit by the experi- 
ence of the third-termers. But they 
miscalculate the effects of the tour un- 
less all signs fail. • The Grant trip was 
attended by a senes of ovations that 
electrified the world, and when the 
party arrived oh the return public ex- 
citement had been worked up to a high 
pitch. The reaction was less the re- 
sult of time than it was the impossibil- 
ity of maintaining the high 8t -ain 
which had been reached. It is not 
likely that Blaine’s tour will be attend- 
ed with such demonstrations, and 
when he returns it will be necessary to 
create the enthusiasm that is expected 
to boom him through the convention, 
and that will take time. It would 
seem, therefore, that the Blaine man- 
agers have made a mistake in depart- 
ing from the model set by Grant's 
friends . — Harrisburg Patriot. 



devil,” shall a man have no help, no coun- 
sel? 

Our text intimates something different. 
In those eyes that wept with the Bethany 
.sisters I see shining hope. In that voice 
which spake until the grave broke and the 
widow of Nain had back her lost son, and 
the sea slept, and sorrow stupendous woke 
up in the arms of rapture — in that voice I 
bear the command and the promise: “Cast 
t thy burden on the Lord, and He will sus- 
tain thee.” Why shquld you carr; your 
burdens any longer! Oh, you weary soul, 
Christ has been in this conflict. Ho says : 
“My grace shall be sufficient for you. You 
shall not be tempted above that you are 
able to bear.” Therefore, with all your 
temptations, go, as these disciples did, and 
tcU Jesus. 

, Again I commend the behavior of the 
disciples to all those who are abused and 
slandered and xKsrsecuted. When Herod 
^ But Jphn ta RAolh the dioc plcs knnv Us»* 
[ their own heads were net safe. And do 
you know that every John has a Herod! 
There are persons in life M-ho do not wish 
you very well. Your misfortunes are 
honeycombs to them. Through their teeth 
they hiss at you, misinterpret your mo- 
tives and would be glad to see you upset. 
No man gets through life without having 
a pummeling. Borne slander comes after 
you, horned and husked and hoofed, to 
gore and trample you. And what are you 
to do! I tell you plainly that all who serve 
Christ must suffer persecution. It is 
the worst sign in the world for you to' be 
able to say : “1 haven’t an enemy in the 

world.” A woe is pronounced in the Bible 
against the one whom every body speaks 
well. If you arc at peace, with all the 
world, and every body likes you and ap- 
proves your work, it is because you are an 
idler in the Lord’s vineyard, and arc not 
doing your duty. 

All those who have served Christ, how- 
ever eminent, have been maltreated at 
some stage of their experience. You 
know it was so in the time of George 
Whiteflcld, when he stood and invited men 
into the kingdom of God. What did the 
learned Dr. Johnson say of him? He pro- 
nounced him a miserable mountebank. 

How was it when Robert Hall stood and 
spoke as scarcely any uninspired man ever 
did speak of the glories of Heaven, ahd as 
he stood Sabbath after Sabbath preaching 
on these themes, his face kindled with the 
glory! John Foster, a Christian man, said 
of this man: “Robert Hall is only acting, 
and the smile on his face is a reflection of 
his own vanity.” John Wesley turhed all 
England upside down with Christian re- 
form, and yet the punsters were after him, 
and the meanest jokes in England were 
perpetrated about John Wesley. What is 
true of the pulpit is true of the pew; it is 
true of the street, it is true of the shop 
and the store. All who will live godly in 
Christ Jesus must suffer persecution. 

And I set it down as the very worst sign 
in all your Christian experience if you are, 
any of you, at peace with all the world. 
The religion of Christ is war. It is a 
challenge to “the world, the flesh and the 
devil and if yon will buckle on the whole 
armor of God, you will find a great host 
disputing your path between this and 
Heaven. But what arc you to do

•AGAINST THE GRAIN 



The Habit Whloh Stands In the Way ol 

Many Persons* Saccess and Happiness. 

Wi.en one attempts to stroke the backot 
an animal, the success of the experiment, 
and also its unpleasantness both to the 
stroking and stroked party, are vory mneb 
ruled by the effort being made in the di- 
rection in which the hair lies. When the 
hand is drawn against the direction of the 
hair, or, as the phrase is, against the grain, 
it is found to be both difficult and disagree- 
able ; when the cat, in particular, is treat- 
ed in this manner, there is a simultaneous 
tevelopment of electricity from her back 
oad fire from her temper, and it ia odds 
bat tbo experimenter gets a good scratch- 
tag. On the crnlrary, when the hand is 
drawn vffA the grain, the thing is found to 
be quite easy and the animal is manifoAtly 
pleased. In such circumstances Madame 
Grimalkin generally falls into that purring 
song of hers, which is at once an expres- 
sion of extreme satisfaction on her part, 
and to human ears x ne of the most agree- 
able sounds in nature. 

Strong analogy has \,ed to toe application 
of the phrase with or agaitut the graiq to 
moral subjects. When something is done 
to an individual, or be is obliged to do 
something which he greatlv dislikes, it is 
said to be the grain with him. 

The surprising thing is that while this Is 
so evident to all the expedient of stroking 
each other with the hair is so little and so 
partially resorted to. Every day wo see 
individuals failing in their purposes with 
their fellow-creatures, and making them 
enemies instead of friends, merely be- 
cause they do not take them with the grain, 
but against it. Parents lose the affections 
of their children, and forfeit all influence 
over them, because every thing they dic- 
tate and recommend, every word of advice 
and warning,every word of instruction, and 
the character of their whole intercourse, 
is against the grain of the natural facul- 
ties of the younger party. Servants and 
assistants of all kinds become disaffected 
to their employers, because the treatment 
which they experience is unfortunatel;- all 
against the g^rain. In short, this great 
secret of man-management is often 
strangely overlooked. — N. Y. Ledger.

ing the cold months, most bo expelled or when the 
mild days come, and the effect of bracing air is lost, 
the body is liable to be overcome by debllltr or some 
serious disease. The remarkable saccess achieved 
by Hood’s Sarsaparilla, and the many words of 
praise It has received, make It worthy yonr confl- 
dence. We ask yon to give this medicine a triaL 
** We have used Hood’s Sarsaparilla for several 
years, and feel prond to recommend it as an excel- 
lent spring medicine or to be need at all times as a 
blood pnriBer. For children as well as grown peo-

for onr boy to take in the spring. He Is nine years

clang ot the sepulchral gate. The sod 
must be broken. The ground must be 
plowed for resurrection harvest. Eternity 
must be peopled. The dust must press our 
eyelids. 

“It is appointed unto all men once to 
die.” This emigration from time into eter- 
nity keeps three-fourths of the families- of 
the earth in desolation. The air is reitt 
with farewells, and the black-tasseled ve- 
hicles of death rumble* through every 
street. * 

The body of the child that was folded so 
closely to the mother’s heart is put away 
in the cold and the darkness. The laugh- 
ter freezes to the girl’s lip, and the rose 
scatters. The boy in the harvest field of 
Shunam, says: “My bead! my head!” 
and they carry him home to die on the lap 
of bis mother. Widowhood stands with 
tragedies of woe struck into the pallor of 
the cheek. Orphanage cries in vain for 
father and mother. Oh, the grave is cruel ! 
With teeth of stone It clutches for 
its prey. Between the closing gates of 
the sepulcher our hearts are man- 
gled and crushed. Is there any earthly 
solace ! Kone. W e come to the obsequies, we 
sit with the grief-stricken, we talk pathet- 
ically to their soul; but soon the obsequies 
have passed, the carriages have left us at 
the door, toe friends who stayed for a few 
days are gone, and the heart sits in deso- 
lation listening for the little feet that will 
never again patter through the hall, or 
looking for the entrance of those who will 
never come again ; sighing into the dark- 
ness; ever and anon coming across some 
book or garment, or little shoe or picture 
that arouses former associatioas, almost 
killing the heart. 

Long days and nights of suffering that 
wear out the spirit and expunge the bright 
lines of life, and give haggardness to the 
face, and draw the flesh tight down over 
toe cheek-bone, sod draw dark lines under 
the sunken eye, and the hand is tremulous, 
and toe voice is husky snd uncertain, and 
the grief is wearing, grinding, accumulat- 
ing, ezhansUng. 

ICow, what are such to dot Are they 
nerely to look up into a brazen atid nn-

blasted heath unfed of stream, unshelter-

inai some oi ns, instead of calculating our 
days and nights and years by any earthly 
time piece, might calculate thgm by the 
numbers of opportunities and mercies 
which are burning down and burning but, 
never to be relighted, lest at last we be amid 
the foolish virgins who cried: “Our lamps 
have gone out !” 

Again, I commend the behavior of the 
disciples to all who are tempted. I have 
heard men in mid-life say they had never 
been led into temptation. 

If you have not felt teinptation it is be- 
. cgu V .you have not tried fo do right. A 
man hobbit and hdnd-cnffed, as long as 
he lies quietly, does not test the power of 
toe chain ; but when he rises up, and with 
determination resolves to snap the hand- 
cuff or break the hopple, then he finds the 
power of the iron. And there are men 
who have been for ten and twenty and 
thirty years bound band and f oot by evil 
habits who have never felt the power of 
the chain,~because they have never tried 
to break it. It is very easy 'to go on down 
with the stream and with the wind, lying 
on your oars ; but just turn around and try 
to go against the wind and the tide, and 
you will find that it is a different matter. 
As long as we go down the current of onr 
evil habit we seem to get along quite 
smoothly; bat if after Awhile we turn 
around and bead the other way, toward 
Christ and pardon and Heaven,oh,thcn how 
we have to lay to the oars! You will have 
yonr temptation. Y on have one kind, you

referees jointly appointed by the Secre- 
tary of the Navy and the owners. 

A plan for enrolling officers and 
crews for the vessels so constructed has 
also been sogg^ested. It fixes .the term 
of service of those who enlist at five 
years, with grades and ratings like the 
regular navy, and also with pay like 
the navy while engaged in drill and in- 
struction or active service. It is be- 
lieved that this feature would be en- 
thusiastically received by yachtsmen, 
who would enjoy Government, nniform 
and naval rank, and that many water- 
men and fishermen would be found 
ready for enrollinent, especially if the 
times of taaining were so fixed as not 
to interfere with their ordinary work. 

The British Royal Naval Reserve has 
80,000 men enrolled in this manner. 
They drill four weeks in each y em:, and 
tbeinnamber may be increased by tho 
enrollment of seaforing then, if their 
services should be required in time of 
actual hostilities.
