In Romans it is .-howii t(i he a work from within, by tlio renewing of our minds, and in Corinthi-.•lu.-i ir is said to be accomplished by beholding His glory in the glass or mirror of His word. It seenjs to me that the beginning and development aiid consummation of the Cliristian life has but one secret, and that is "I.H'holding Hini." When in that lair ni(M-nlng we shall indeed seo Ilim, then v.e shall indeed be like Him.  a. "And. behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Ellas, talking with Him. " We kncjw that Moses died and was buried in the land of Moab (Deut. xxxiv, 5, 0), •ver MO'J years before this, and Elijah was taken to heaven in a whirlwind and (•robably in tho chariot over 800 years be-! !>re, tho only man excopt Enoch who has  \( i. «'vcr bcepi <>.\ciised from tho apiioint-Kicut of death (Heli. ix, 37) Viit here they ::re alive and well and talking with Christ 'if His death, or decease, or exodus, which I To was about to accomplish at .Icrusalem ( i.uke ix, 31). Wiether tho believer dies <1- is translated, in either caso it means instantly with the Lord in sucli a life and such bli.ss as wc canno'; imasrino (Phil, i, 21, 23; iii, 20, 21), but all the bles.sedness and reality of that life arc wholly due to tho work which our Loi-d Jesus finished on Calvary.  4. " TheJi answei-ed I'eter, and said unto .lesus. Lord, it is good for us to bo hero, ir Thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles—ono for Thee, and one for Moses, ;ind one for Elias." I think wo may conclude from Jude ix thai; Moses had his resurrection body. If so, rjicn ho represented tho risen saints, while Elijah represented iho.^o who will not die, but 1)0 tran.slated ,it our Lord's coming, the tworejjresenting the whole heavenly company of tho rc-«Icemed in the kingdom when it shall have i-omc, while Pet^-r, .lames and John, threo righteous .lews, repiT.sent all Israel, a rivrlitcous nation on (jarth in tho kingdom, and this rRrPla-Winff-VTBaft'O-nr Ix)rd promised in chapter xvi, 28.  5. "While ho yet spake, behold, a bright I !oud overshadowed tliem, and, Ix-hohl, a \oice f)ut of the cloudr' V hich satdi- This is •My beloved Son, in whom 1 am well ¡■leased.

TWO CRAFT OF THIS CLASS JUST ADDED TO OUR NAVY.  They Will Rob Naval Warfare of Some  of It« Terrors and Give Jack Tar One  More Chance to Survive a Modem Sea  Fight.  Two ¡nnhiilance or hospitnl shipa are now ii part of tlie rnitod States navy. Both were recently purchased and altered for the pnrpose. They lly tho flag of tho Red Cross .society and will accompany squadrons so as to ho near at hand when needed. One of the.se liospital ships is tho Cruniwell line steamer Creole, tho other the Grand Duches.se of tho Plan! line.  The Creole is the iinest and fastest steamship in the Cr'unwell lleet. Hho is almost ni'w, having Ijecn hiiilt at Newport News and jiut in service in December, 18!)(3. She Is built etitin ly of steel -from keel to ])ilothonso tops and is 37f) feet long and has a breadth of beam of feet. Her speed is l.i knots an hour.  Being a rocu-ntly built steamship, tlm Creole has the late.st improved marine machinery and sieam .steering gear. Th«* cabins, saloons and staterooms aro finely furnished. She was designed by Horace See.  Captain E. A', (laser, tho commander of the Creole, retains command of the vessel, and he retains jiiany of the crew. Tie ofTer(«i his ser\ices wh'-n the naval auxiliary board iirst. began negotiations for tho Creole's jiurchase. and as he had seen active service in the I'nited States navy in tho civil n ar his otfcr was.accepted.  At the niitbreak nf the civil war ho w.is called Iiy the g(jvernment and rc('oived tho first arti!!g master's commission, which bears tlic date of April ir),.18(il. Ho was then .iiiiiijinrcd e.^eciitivo oilicor of tho l". S. S. -Montirello and afterward was detailed for du'v as pihjtof thefnmotis Mon-itor.  Tho (rrand Duchesse. which wa.s ptjr-chased liv lh<^ government in March, is ad-mira'jly iitted for the jiurposo of hos[)ital ?hij).  Cp to the present time the quarters of the sick and wounded aboard a warship have been located in what is knowti as tho sick bay, away forward, practically occupying a sjiace in the bo>v, where the groaning of the chain is heard at all times and th(! motion of the vi-ssel keenly felt. This has manifestly ojierated agaijist recovery, as it ha.s jnaiie quiet: an atjsolute impcjssi-bility. Indeed Surgeon General Van Reyjien says that there will bo at least 525 per cent mrne recoveries in an amt)ulance ship than thero would bo if tho men on the sick list were carod for aboard their own vessels.  The Jiiichesso is exactly of tlio type advised for the ship ambulance service. .Sho is of the nov,-est model in steamships and is constructed with an idea of permitting her jiassengors to escape the discomforts of seasickness as much as possible. Sho rolls very little, and it takes almost a storm to cause her t« ride otherwise than on an even keel.  There is rtA an ill ventilated apartment on the ship. Every convenience that has  ■will presently auu nmuuiance nnips n» their fleets, it is the intention to secure an intornational agreement, a reindorsenjenJ; of tho Geneva award, setting forth that tho Jied Cross flag on any vessel shall cause her to Iw recognized as a noncoin-batant.  It will bo tho duty of tho anibulanoo ship to renniin within signal in case of li naval conflict, or, in caso of a large number of soldiers being wounded ashoro, to (niter the neare.st port when it is possible and receive as many of tho wounded as can be transferred. Heretofore it has boon the custom to utilize tho transports for romov-ing wounded men from one port to another, but it is believed the ambulance ship will change all this.  •'It is neces.-iary," said Surgeoji <ioncral Van Heypcn, when speaking of tho .'im-bnlance ship, "that a vessel of this nature shuiihl be verj' sjieedy. for in the case of wounded men speed is sometimes necessary to life. A speedy vessel of this sort wiH be able to take her assignment of sick ami wiiuiided and latul them at tho nearest shore hospital in a very short space of time."  A BOLL OF PÁfBIOfS.

Colonel William D'H. Washington, who originated the idea, has been aided by prominent officials and military men from all parts of the country. The initial steps toward organization have been taken, and if the eh-1 thusiasm with which the plan has so far | been received does not abate Uncle Sam !  A n Old  .U I  il  Afcuie helpless, cis a baby by a dreadful nervous dt9' ease he read of a case like his own^ and had enough faith to follow Ihe example it set him.

SCHOFIKLD,  will 6oon have enrolled a citizen army whoso nunibci's will run up into the rail-lions.  Briefly t!)o scheme is to have every mail who would bo willing to enlist in case of war to sign an a^rreemer.t to that effect and join a great patriotic organization. Incidejitully he must be, to become a member of tho National Volunteer Hesorve, physically and mentally .sound and of military ago. The object is to let Uncle Sam know his (ixact militaryand naval strength. If the European nations learn that it takes seven figures to number our fighting n)en, why, it will do no harm.  At a recent meeting of the organizers held in New York city tho following officers wero elected: Lieutenant General John M. Schoiield, T. S. A., commander; Lieutenant General .lames Ijongstreet,  Sawing wood, working in his garden, walidng three times a day to and feom his place of business—these formpart of the daily routine of Edwin R. Tripp, Post-niaster of Middlefield Centre, N. Y. He is ¡cast his seventieth birthday.  Nearly .fifty years a bli^ksmith; tlitfty-^ two yeacs^ Justice of the Peacei three years' fawn cleA^ then postmaster; forty-iik years a resident of the town he now lives in— tiuie are the bate outlines of a useftfl life.  Mi, Trills career is a type. His story will be read with heartfelt sympathy by thouKUods^ His hearty endorsement of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People will be echoed by tens of thousands.  He said:  ''In March, 1892, I was attacked by what I afterwards learned was locomotor ataxia.  ''Two skillful doctors did everything they could for me. I steadily became worse. Vas unable to dress myself.  ''Later I could not noove even about the room, but was carried in my chair.  "I gave up hope. The doctors gave me no encouragement. I did not expect to Uve very long. I was more helpless than a baby. I sank lower and lower.  "In Tune the tide turned! From the lowest ebb, it began to set toward health and vigor..  "The turning point was a newspaper article.  "It tdd how a man, who tttffercd as I had sufieredL had been cured by Dr. Williams^ Pink Pills for Pale Peofde.  "It gave me fsuth and hope. I took two boxes of the pills; then four more boxes.  "Ay gain Was steady; my return to health wis a source of daily gratificatioa.  "in all I took eighteen boxes of the piUs before I was entirely well,; At fir^t J paid 50 cents a box, but afterwards 1 sa.ved money by getting six boxes at a tiimie, paying $2.50.  I owe my cure entirely to Dr.WilHams* Pink Pills for Pale People."  To clinch his remarkable story and add to its helpftilness to others, Mr. Tripp made affidavit to its truthfulness before Homer Hanna, a local Notary Public.  From helplessness, suffering and despair Mr. Tripp was restored to the healthful, useful a^vity suggested at the beginning of this sketch. His experience is like others.  While locomotor ataxia is one of the most baffling nervous diseases with which physicians are called to contend, its cure by Dr. Williams' Pink pais for Pale People has become a matter of almost daily occurrence. Smaller nervous tcoubles yield much more readily to the powerful influence these vegetable pills exert in restoring wasted nerve forcc and in purifying and enriching the blood.  Druggists everywhere sell Dr. Williams* Pink pais for Pale People.  A Iiivlni): Tortarc.  Attendant—This patient imagines he is at a comic opera all the time.

At some timo iu her life every girl has just as good as proposed to some man.  A.sk auj- girl if she believes iu love, and tbe Iirst thing she will say is to ask •why you ask.  After a girl has onco been kissed by a man she alv%'ays takes a long breath before she does it again.  A husband can break down bis wife's lifelong love for him by driving a nail luto tho parlor plastering.  A woman never realizes hovi' lacking other women are till sho tries to think which ones of them would be worthy of her husband.  It^s funny that tbe men don't kick at tho women's wearing big hats in church tho way they do when they wear them to tho theator.  Lots of women will act as mean as dirt to their hu.sbauds when they're too tender hearted to kill a chicken.  Tho average woman can cover more space carrying an umbrella than a man could witii a yO foot ladder.  A woman would be about as successful iu politics as a man would be iu putting away his winter clothes in tar paper.  The clever woman isn't the one who always sees tho point of a joke, but the one who knows enough to laugh as if she did.  When a girl is trying to get a man to  propose to her, she probably feels a good deal like the first time she tried to eat a lobster.  A girl never fully enjoys a play she has heard is so j^atbetio unless she has spent tho morning reading the saddest book she could get out of the library.  Anyway, when a man wants to look at himself ho doesn't go up to a jeweler's window and pretend ho is setting his watch.  Tho average man doesn't pnt much stock iu robins; he waits till bobeara some girl say she must get her shirt waists ready  A woman's sense of humor consists in snickering when her husband has got up and dressed under tho impression that it is an hour later than it is.—2sew York Press.

These experiments show that the only efficient media for filtration are forms of porcelain and different compressed s Ixious earths and natural porous stones, and that carbon in its various forms, either alone or compounded with silicious or manganiferous material, whether in blocks, powdered cr granular, asljesto in different forms, spongy iron, com-pro.-.sed colhjlose, etc., are all unreliable and in most cases worse than useless. The best results were obtained witl .'-■ome of the precsure filters, made oi ];0!celain. compressed silicicus earth, etc., which are arranged for fitting on the taps in ur-;e in most houses, and several of these on the market not only give practically .sterile wafer, but filter .-uiflicienlly rapidly to make them of practical utility for everyday u.se.
