The church was even more crowded than usual, it having bs- cotne more generally known Beecher has resumed his pulpit. In reading the 13th psalm before the sermon, Mr. Beecher adopted the revised version, and the changes made by the revision ere very ap- parent. The reading made it necessary for Mr. Beecher to utter for the first time ia the pulpit the new appellation of the infernal regions, and it may be noted by seekers for authority iu such matters, that Mr. Beechei pronounced it exactly word "shoal.': Mr. Beecher made his annual appeal to the American Missionary society. He desc-ibed it as in bis opinion by far the most import- ant institution at present working for Cijrist.aii progress in this laud. Its' work was principally among foreigners, resideat or naturalized here, including the Chinese. said Mr. Beecher, with emphasis, "have emigrated here and will emigrate here." Mr. Beechsr believed tbat in the education and espacially tha religious edu- cation of these peoples lay the solution of many socrial problems. "Whatever may bo the questions of other said he, "the question with us to- day is the question of their rights their position, their'defense, tueir opportu- nities. For the conflict bet we ju labor and capital and all those who labor by it, for all the questions of race, of color. 01' difference of religion, there is a solution in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and if, having this soivent power and having this bread of lii'e on our hands, we do not give it forth Christian patriotism will stagger and will dis." Mr. Beecher's text was the first four Of the First chapter of John. John I, i-iv. "In the beginning was the word and the word was with God, and the word was God." "The same was in the beginning with .God. All things were made by Him and without Him was anything made tiiat was made. In Him was life and the life' was the light of mea. This last is spoken of Christ, not of His human condition, but as repreS3nting God, said Mr. Beecher. Men of definition, he continued, can make very little of such mystic passages. The voice of th eology as it has been handed down to us from the Roman mind, is an attempt to reduce things to definition; in such a sense to define God as that He shall be com- pressed, to our mind, within exact the illimitable the infinite made finite, the divine government framed into chapters and sections, as if the government of the could be likened to the imperial sjstem of Rome, with its provinces, coun- ties and towns. Nowhere, perhaps, so much as in this book, the life of Christ by John, do we find mystycism the abandonment .of the system of dots, angles, lines and abso- lutenesses. It is perpetually reaching out in unexpected and it puzzles us to follow, and thereby it shows itself to be a truly inspired ragard. All phenomena of nature and all the frame-work of the worl.l, we aro to under- stand by this passage, have their life in the life of Gcd. It may be said they float in an universal atmospheric life divine. The life principle of the universe is God. It is above everything, it is beneath every thing, it is on every side, it is the one germinant energy. The touch of God's presence every where is the reason of life. Johnson is never mistaken for Burke. The way of their minds is so different. No one could confound Webster in his gigantic speeches, and Emerson in the stringed pearls of his style. This is recognition of interior personality, which is far more individual tbat anything corporeal Plato is dead, bat Plato's writings exist, and Plato exhales from them, and there is a living Plato and a living socrates. Thus we have personality as determined by matter, and personality as determined by mind. .Almost from the very beginning God forbade anyone to liken Him to anything material. In the spiritual kingdom, He will be dis- cernible as God and mother. When wo shall arise and see Him as the scripture subtly says, "We shall see Him as He is." God is the universal life enbosomed in men borrow from Him every thought, tion, life. Go! is everywhere, His whole being is everywhere. It pervades space, time and existence. It is more like light and heat than any other illustration. So it is used throughout the bible, "Our God is a "He was the the light of the world, and gave light." Were he to withdraw Him- self, there would be no cohesion, no attac- tion, no quality. Matter, rushing in dire confusion, would dissolve and perish. And it is the being of God everywhere proaout that holds things together and inspires them to tendencies and ripens them to results. Here thought stops. We can not uuderstanJ the quality, or the nature of a being that is everywhere present and always. He is tha great underlying energy that modern science at last has found out, an d in which it believes. They say that no Goi is needed; that once postulating energy, the whole universe can be unfolded from that. Yes, you call it energy, I call it God. But science at last has come to that fact, re- vealed many thousand years ago, "All things were made by Him; there was not anything made that was not made by Him." The Greek Christians accepted the He- brew idea that God was an universal presence, and that He was the light of the world, the universal energy identified with all growth and all life and all being. Sc that you perceive they came very near to our scientific postulate of energy as the starting point of creation. What that energy is, science has never been to de- fine, or state, or even prove. But ages ago, holy men, inspired of God, declared that GoJ was that energy, that universal atmos- phere in which the worid and all its forces float The whole world sprang out of the life of God and existed as a part of his life, and was ministered to every stagj of its being by tha direct presence and contact of the div.'ne nature. And this conception of 'the universality of tbe personality of CKxi gives the life and mission of Jesus Christ a clearer interprets taon. Tbe whole human nature longs for a defined God, for one that shall answer some- what to our communication with each other. Es was on 5 WLJO went about doing Ic was Ay that said "It is uio-e bl-ss-xl to than to Like thy lamp or tbe caudle, receiving from the atmosphere, but only that it may pay back again in effulgent light. And sc that which we loag for iu the universal and invisible U-j 1, the spirit that pervades the whole of time aad ths world, we obtain in Jesus CJrisS. He stands God in the universal, sympathy of His nature ia its succor, in its fruitful supply for humac want. hava soaisthing now that we cia fix our eye on, and answers to our for so cau do the Jesus in just such an imags as suits our want, anci every one fastens upon Jesus Christ some form, soma expressions of coiintsinnce, something that brings him near to their want. That was his function. Men have sup- posed that Christ came into the world tc give a lost race. You might search frorc one pole to tho other, and around the equa- tor a thousand times and you could not find the lost race; that he came to make Adam stumble; hut Ailam never existed and he never stumbled, and there was nothing, therefore, in that to bring Christ into the world. Itat theology, particularly Roman, has gone on saying that He came into the world to suffer- instead of man; to make a plan by whiya man could be saved; but that plan was jna le in the foundation of the worid. From the beginning to the end every man by God was saved if he lived in the life of God. He cama into this world to let us know that GoJ so loved us that he guvo bis sou to die for tfe. and Hi; dying was tho gi-aatsst evidence that Grod'.- was love, and that he would save men, not because they deserve it, but be- cause God desires it The diffused and universal prasanca of God is drawing the world toward him. The grain and chaff both exist The one shall be garnered an i the other burned. All life that has in it no principle of the animal out like a I know we are sorry. There is many a horse that is better fit for ijjinvjrtalifcy than tbe man rides it. Taere IK many a dog that has marc disinterested love than the man that owns it. And why should not they have a chance hereafter. I don't know but they will. The word of the Lotvl is: "He that sows to the flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption." Death, dissolution, annihilation. "He that so-.vs to the spirit, life eternal" In this great moving current of divine life, in which'generabions have moved, all that accept, the life of tha light of G-o-.l, and move onward, no matter, relatively how low they are, all of them shall appear ia Zion before God. And thiue who turn away from Him and go toward the animal they sh.ill uot. see Him, or know Him. THE RADICAL CAESAR THE HIGH. TOPLOFTY AIM; CHAMBERLAIN. OF MR.

Mr. Chamberlain knows that Lord Hartington will succeed Mr. Gladstone in the leadership of the ow Liberal party, and aims at baing the of the Radicals with the virtual control of the Liberal ministry if a C.-csarsMp of the whole party is impossible. Tua outlines of party issuos ore as flurried as ever. The Liberals have scarcely succeeded in obtain- ing that general unity which tha Gladstone manifesto was intended to accomplish. The Roumelian question is drifting the Ridicais into an effort to prevent Lord Salisbury from assisting Turkey evan if he wera so in- clined. Consul General Fawcett and Maj. Trotter, the military attache of the British legation at Constantinople, were intervieux-d, and talked quite freely of their recent tour ol Roumelia unJ Southern Bulgaria. They sav that llouMielia is like the centre of a whirlwind. It is perfectly calm while tem- pests are circling around it. There is no excitement among even the most enthusi- astic Bulgers and the Turkish pwtisuus, who are hopalessly in tho minority, are as quiet us mice. There is no danger of fight- ing, and the efforts of the leaders are de- voted to maintaining ths strictest order on both sides. The march of Bulgarian troopF through Routnelia is so circumspectly or- dsred that no foraging is allowel, and quar- tarmastors aro forbiddan to make forced requisitions. Every effort is ma-la to pre- vent aggression on either side. Tha deposed officials, who would ba suppossd to be heart- ily devoted to Turkish rule, are now vying with each other for positions under the new regime. Maj. Trotter sums up the situation by saying: "The only fighting in prospact is a neighbor- hood qu-irrel that will result iu a few stabs in the dark. No troops will go northward and no Turkish officer will gat his pro mo- tion from this affair." The dispatchss from Constantinople show the Turkish troops which ware to havs been ssnt to Bulgaria are now destined for Salou- ica to forastalt the espacted rising !in Mace- CHANG, CHING CHINAMAN.

The compositions of the new Turk ish cabinet indicates a pacific disposition, and Turkey's moderation in tha present cri- sis has undoubtedly produced a good im- pression every where. The president reports from Vienna of a popular uprising in Servia are attracting more attention just now in diplomatic cir- cles than the strike by which the two Bui- garias have been reunited. There is consid- abb anxiety as to the course of the Servians in event of a general rumpus in the Balkan peninsula ani as to their loyalty to Kinj; Milan. The Servian minister in Londoi said that he had heard nothing which couk. causa him to believe that anything unusua, had occurred in Servia. Au oilicial dis- patch from B jlgrade was the sub- stance of waica is that all reports of disor- der or disloyalty iu Servia are absolutely false; that mobilization of the Servian army progresses luickly and easily, and that the people ara enthusiastic: t f ti j, m LU3 city of Cheyenne -iftar October 1 will be sub- jected to u coat of tar and feathers and rid- den from th.> city on a rail." The most loiiraia inquiry thus far cannot trace the source from which originated.

Soon afterward he walked to his home, laid down and died in terrible agony, charging to the last that he had been poisoned by Avery.

Dr. Walsh admits that he in- curs a serioas responsibility in taking this step. It is stated that the archbishop of Armagh is preparing a circular urging mod- eration and cassation or curtailment of the boycotting maasuras now practice! by tha National laa-.jue, but the archbishop's re- cent eulogy of Earl and Lord Car- narnon will, it is feared, nullify the value of his manif-jsto.

[Detroit Free Press.] They had been enemies for three long years. They passed each other on the street with stern faces, their wives made fun of each other's dresses, and the children climbed up on tho back fence and called each other aristocrats. Oh, no; there was no dovo of peace around there' and lot; of paoplo predicted that a of. ostas-ination would grow out of it. Last evening a whole neighborhood was astonished beyond measure. These two families who had thirsted for each other's scalps were seen in sweet convention on the lawn. The men exchanged cigars, the women admired each other's latent pur- and tbe bles-ed little children bugged each other all over the grass. How did the change come about? Well neither man ever owned a horse in his life, and neither know a case of spavin from a blooming instance of poll-evil j'oues de- cided, however, to buy a hor-e. He was looking one over at his hitching-poat when Smith came In a moment of forget- fulnoss Jones remarked: "Say, Smith, you know all about a horse.

[I'rovkK'nre Journal.] A singular .iff iir uccurrol recently in one of the pleasante-it homos in the suburbs of our city, tho relation of which may not only be of some interest, but aho of some use to tlio reader. A few days ago tuo familv physidati visited the sama residence, and in the cour.-o of conversation mentions! tiiat, ntt-iiiiJiiig a sick tha child bad sud'iuniy to suffocate, owing to a quantity of mucu- into its windpipe, he had turned the cuild upside down, in order to relieve it. Ibis story passed almost unnoticed, ex- by the of tue lady of the hou e. The family, consisting of the h us ban 1, wife and wife's sifter, were at tha table eating. Suddenly the wife began to show signs of suffocation. Her resorted to the familiar remedy of patting her smartly on the back; but it was unavailing. She could not speak; her face became of a purple hue, and she was evidently at the point of death. At this moment, her sister, remembering.the doctor's story, seized her by the ankles. The husband caught tho idoa instan ly. an 1 tbe lady was soon in an inverted position, whereupon she immadiately coughe 1 up tho food which ha. I nearly caused her death. The husband blesses himself for tbe story which the doctor so casually told, without an; thought tbat it might help to i life Tribune.] Among all the preventives which bars been suggested, the history of the disease shows that cleanliness is the most effective, as it is the cheapest, but for dirty people the hardest to apply. "WhUe cleanliness should be practiced iu every way, both personal and in connection with dwelling-houses and their neighborhoods, cleanliness in water it unquestionably the most effective form of applying the remedy, because the cholera microbes breed most rapidly in impurs water during hot weather, and are more easily conveyed by it from point to point than by the air or by clothing. Professor Baird of tbe Smithsonian insti- tution has called attention to this agency for tha spread of disease in a manner which deserves attention. He says in a lotter to The Washington Star that during the Cen- tennial he was stationed near the building for sis: months, and, although cases of diarrhea were prevalent all about him, ha found that the use of boiled water was an absolute preventive, and that while they had several coses of illness of this class be- fore they began to use it they had nons afterwards. He says: The fishy taste of the Potomac water at the present time, due to the solution in it of decomposed vegetation, or of fresh-water sponges-, can al o Le in a great measure re- moved by the same proce-s, I have usually enough water boiled in the morning to last through the day. This is placed in a large water-cooler without ice, and drawn from when required to flU ice-pitchers, etc. The water should boil actively for halt an hour m ordar to kill the genus of disease. Ot course this is only effective in cases of or- ganic impurities, as mineral poisons would not be destroyed thereby. In the history of cholera, as of almost all other contagious and epidemic diseases, it ia found that they are constantly present In low, swampy districts where the water ii stagnant and given out offensive eihaJa- tions. The home of cholera in India and other" Asiatic countries Is located in of this kind. Wherever swamps and stag- nant pools abound there is disease in variom forms. The same rule holds true in every country where the water Is impure or has been in any manner. Plymouth, Pa., which has suffered sc terribly this year from typhoid fever. Is in a mountainous and naturally healthy coun- try, and its ordinary sanitary conditions were no worse than those of neighboring towns where there has been no disease at all The cause of tho epidemic there was a specific one and was easily traced to impure water. A little mountain stream became poisoned by the dejecta of one or two typhoid fever patients, and, as it flowed into the reservoir which supplies the town, spread the germs of disease broadcast In New York city recently the filthy swamp of the "Collect underlying the Tombs prison, was partially uncovered during soma repairs, resulting in the death of one of tho prison officials and in the an- noyance of the whole neighborhood. By purifying such spots as these and by boiling the water which is used for drinking pur- poses ono of the principal causes of disease and of tho sproad of disease will be re- moved; and by the additional precautions of personal cleanliness, clean house prem ises, the destruction of kitchan refuse by burning, and the use of clean, wholesome, fresh food, there is no reason why any one need fear the cholera, even if it should reach the city.-------------------------- The Useful (Lieut.
