It was to meet at Lucerne Two delegates were sent from the United States. Then Cardinal Lavigerie fell ill at Lucerene, and even received extreme unction. DiHsensiona among the powers prevented the scheme on his recovery, and now he is dead, with this great desire of his zealous soul unaccomplished, after more than fotty years of weary labor in Africa for the wretched natives. Cardinal Lavigerie, even as the physical man, was a magnificent type. He was six feet ten inches in height and well built. His flowing beard of silvery whiteness gave a touch of patriarchial dignity to bis kindly face, with its well cut feat ures. He was an impressive person ality, .and was one of the most com mauding figures in the college of Cardinals. | The lomh in the Cathedral of Carthage which awaits the dead pre late was blessed by himself, and ev en the opitaph already engraven on the wall 18 characteristic of the man and reveals in its epigrammatic con ciseness trace of the young French proiessor of Latin Literatu: e at the EcoIeOes Carmes.

Among these r^ys of impart d wisdom— hese hints of sr prcms scienc —are the followmg three teachings in particular: . 1. The spirii of man is a spark of One Eternal Existence; and this spark has to pass through various fonos, va ious lives, various lung-protracted incarnations; until, by good use ot probation, it merits a^ Horpiion i »to reality, or, by bad nsc, sinks down into aunihilution. Mb tempsycboses aud re-incarnations go on for centuries, so that the prospect of the Theosophsst i*» a long one, stretching po-eibly over several thous ands of ye^irs, 2. Even when a g»>od soul oor good spark—we kno w not what) has worked its w’ay up to the highest possible perfection, it can, if it likes, forego its own enjo ment and be come again in arnate to benefit oth ers. It may keep on doing this for centuries, or for ages, or so long as there is any one to be benefiUed. We may gather something of the wonderous virtues of these superior “sparks” when they .have attaiae»! to the highest perfection of their The osophy, from the fact that Buddah, Confucius, nay—if we may repeat ^uch    profanity—Christ, himself, were all “Nirmanakyas,” or the highest attainable type of M hatmas. 3. And just one word to show that this Tiieosophy is the deadly enemy of Christaan religion. There is’ no forgivenoi-s of sins for the Theasophist. His debts must be paid in full by bis own righteous ness. “Blind, automatic, non-intelli gent,” is the law of retribution for the Theosophist; or, as it has been well cullevl, “trauceutendentally materialistic.” Indeed, it would be difficult to conceive of any “relig which sh uld be more antagonistio to Christianity. The pride of it and the perp tual self-sufficiency, are the exact op osite of the teach ings of the Church. Moreover, the Divinity of our Lord is of course de nied. Man’s divinity (se f-made) takes its place. Thus we read in Mr. Kingsland’s “Esotric Basis of Christianity”:    “The personal at tachment to the life and characfer of Jesus of Nazareth may still reniain In all degrees and forms. It even becomes greater and stronger -wh n we understand the true nature of bis humanity. Jesus Christ is both hu man and div ne, because we are such.’^ In short, our Lord was ne (Continued on Third Pago.)
