Tuli Nago draws sumo Ftnat lug lessons Anil Tours off Trio mask of deceit thu text is i Kings Xiv a Quot Why Fig nest thou to Solf to to another a in the pulse of wic cod Jeroboam i hero is a sick child a very sick child. Medicines Bubo failed skill is exhausted. Young a i Jah Tho Princo has lived Long enough to become vory popular and yet be most die unless some supernatural Aid to afforded. Death conies up lbs Brond stairs of Tho Palace and swings Back Trio door of Tho sickroom of Royalty and stands looking at the dying Prince with the Dart uplifted. Wicked Jeroboam knows that lie has no right to ask anything of the lord in Tho Way of Khiuit Lojis. To knows that Liis prayers would not in answered and so to sends his wife on the delicate and tender Mission to the Prophet of the lord in Shiloh. Putting Asido her Royal attire she puts on the garb of a peasant woman and starts on Tho rond. Instead of carrying Gold and Geins As Sho might have carried from the Palace she carries Only those gifts which h seem to i Dicato that Sho belongs to the peasantry a few loaves of bread Aud a few crack Els and a Cruse of Honey. Yonder Shu goes hooded and veiled Tho greatest indy in All the kingdom yet passing unobserved. No Ono that meets her on the Highway has any idea that Sho is Tho first lady in All Tho land. Sho is a Queen in Dis Giniso. Tho fort is that Peter the great working in theodry Dockson Sardam Tho sailors lint Aud Tho shipwright s a gave him no Moro thorough disguise than Tho garb of Tho peasant woman gave to Tho Pocon of Tirzah. But Tho Prophet of Tho lord saw the deceit. Although his physical eyesight had failed lie was Divino y illumined Aud at one Gnu cd looked through Trio imposition and to cried out a a Comorn thou i Fec Jeroboam Why Fig nest thou thyself to to another i have evil tidings for thee. Get Alico Back to thy House and when thy feet touch Tho Gato of Tho City Tho child shall die. A Hie Luid a right to ask for Iho recovery of her son. She Hud no right to practice an imposition. Broken hearted now Sho started on the Way Tho tears falling on the dust of Tho Road nil Tho Way from Shiloh to Tirzah. Broken hearted now Sho is not Ca Rohnl any More to Hido her queenly gait and manner. Truo to Tho prophecy Tho moment her feet touch the Gate of Tho City Tho child Dies. As she goes in the soul of Tho child goes out. The cry in Tho Palace is joined by Tho lamentation of a ratio a and us they carry Good Abijoh to Bis Provo Tho air is filled with Tho voice of Eulogy for Tho departed month and Tho pro in of in Nufi Lietard kingdom. Deceit Nail duplicity. It is for no insignificant in Roposo that 1 present Yon Trio thrilling Story of Tho text. Xuy Tho first Placo i learn that wickedness involves others trying to make them its dopes its allies and its Seipio Gem. Jeroboam proposed to hoodwink Tho lord s Prophet. How did lie do it did he go and do Tho work himself no. To sent his wife Todo it. Hers Tho peril of exposure hours the fatigue of Tho Way hers Tho execution of Trio plot his nothing. Iniquity is a brag but it is a great Coward. It lays Trio plan and pots Somo Ono Elso to execute it puts Down the Gunpowder train and gets Somo Ono else to touch it off contrives mischief and pets some one else to work it starts a Lio and gets Somo our to circulate it. In nearly All Trio great crimes of Trio world it is found out that those who planned Trio arson Tho murder Tho theft Tho fraud Ofree while those who were decoded Aud cheated and hoodwinked into Trio conspiracy Clank Tho Chain Aud mount Tho Gallows. Aaron Burr with heart filled with impurity Ami ambition plots for Tho overthrow of Tho United hates government und gets off with a few throats Anda Little censure while blonde runs sctt Tho Learned Blenner Hussett Tho Sweet tempered Blennerhassett is do coyed by Bim from Trio Orchards and Tho laboratories Aud Tho gardens and Tho Homo on Tho Bank of the Ohio River and his fortunes arc scattered and to is thrown into prison and his family brought up in luxury is turned out to die. Abominable Aaron Burr has it comparatively easy. Sweet tempered has it Bard. Benedict Arnold proposed to sell out Tho forts of the United states to surrender Tho revolutionary army and to destroy Tho United states government. gets off with his pockets full of pounds Sterling Obilo major Andre the Bravo and Tho Brilliant is decoded Iulo Tho conspiracy and suffers on the Gibbet on the Banks of Tho Hudson so that even Tho Litera Turo Tho Marble tablature that commemorated that event has been blasted by Midnight desperadoes. Benedict Arnold has it easy. Major Andre has it hard. I have noticed that nine tenths of those who Sailer for crimes Are Nio rely Tho satellites of Somo great villains. Ignominious fraud is a Juggler which by sleight of hand and legerdemain makes the Gold Tuat it stole appear in somebody else a pocket. Jeroboam plots the lie contrives the imposition and gets his wife to execute it. Stand off from All imposition and chicanery. Do not consent to be anybody s dupe anybody Sally in wickedness anybody a Scapegoat. Behind a mask. The Story of the text also impresses the with Tho fact that Royalty Souie Timcio passes in disguise. Tho frock the veil the Hood of the peasant woman hid the queenly Obar Acter of this woman of tir Zenh. Nobody suspected that she was a Queen or a Princess As she passed by but she wbb just As much a Queen a though she stood in the Palace Hor Robes ine rusted with diamonds. And so All around about us there Are princesses and Queens whom Tho world does not recognize. They sit on no throne of Royalty they ride in no Chariot they elicit no Huzzah they make no pre Teube but by the Grace of god they Are princesses and they Are Queens. Sometimes in their poverty sometimes in their self denial sometimes in their hard struggles of Christian service god knows they Are Queens. The world does not recognize ii Iii. Royalty passing in disc visor Tho Crown conquerors without Tho Palm empresses without Tho jewel you saw her yesterday i the Street. You saw nothing important in her but Sho is Regnant Over a Vust realm of virtue Anil goodness in realm Sustor Thuu Jur Boum Over looked it. You went Down into to Bouso of destitution und want Aud suffering. Yon saw Tho Story of trial written on Tho wasted Hnud of Tho Mother on the Pule Cheeks of the children on Tho empty bread tray on the fir Cless Hearth of the broken chair. You would not have Given a Dollar for All to furniture in Trio House. But by the Graco of god she is a Princess. Tho overseers of Trio poor come to Bro and discuss the Case nud say Quot its a pauper. A Thoy do not Reolizo that god has burnished for her a Crown nud that after Sho has got through the fatiguing journey from tir Xali to Shiloh and from Shiloh Back to Tirza there will to a throne of Royalty of Sho shall rest forever. Glory veiled affluence Jiddou motor nil ruptures hushed up u Queen in Musk u Princess in disguise when you think of a Queen you do not think of Catherine of Russia or Maria Ali Crest of Austria or Mary Quoos of scots. When Yon think of a Queen Yon think of n Plain woman who sat opposite your father at the table or walked with him Down Tho path of life Arm in army sometimes to the thanksgiving banquet sometimes to Tho grave but always Side by Side soothing your Little sorrows and adjusting your Little quarrels a Steuing to your evening prayer toiling with Tho Needle or at the spinning who 1 Aud on Nold nights tucking you up snug and warm and then on that dark Day when she Lay a dying patting those thin hands that had toiled for you so lung putting them together in a dying prayer commending you to that god in Wixom Slio had taught you to Trust. Of she a the Queen she was the Queen Yono Kunot think of her now without having to Deepe st emotions of your soul stirred Ulm you feel As if you could cry As though you were now sitting in infancy of her Lap and if you Call her Back to speak your name with the tenderness with which Sho ouch spoke Yon would in willing now to on Tho Sod that covers Lieff Nuivo trying Quot Mother Mother Quot a she was a que til your father knew it. You Kite in it. She was the Queen but the Queen in disguise. Tho world did not recognize it. A grand l i re ii a. But there was a grander disguising. Tho Favorita of a great House looked out of the window of his Palace and he saw that Tho people wore currying heavy burdens and that some of Thorn were hobbling on crutches und to saw Somo lying at the Gate exhibiting their sores and then he heard their lamentation and to said a i will just put of the clothes of those poor people Aud \ will go Down and Sec what their sorrows no nud i will sympathize with them and i will to Ono of to icon mid i will help Well the Day cume for him to . The turds of Tho loud came to so him off. All who could sing joined in the parting song which Shook the Hills and woke up the shepherds. Tho first few nights he has Buen sleeping with the hustlers und the Camel Drivers for no one knew there was a King in town. To went among Tho doctors of the Law astounding them. For. Without any doctor s gown to knew More Law than Trio doctors. To fished with the fishermen he smote with his own in minor in Tho Carpenter s shop he ate raw Corn out of Tho Field to Fried fish on Tho Banks of Gennesaret. was howled at by crazy people in the tombs be was splashed of thu surf of Tho sea a Pilgrim without any Pillow a sick Man without any medicament n Mourner with no syut put Hetio bosom in which he could pour his tears. Disguise Complete i i know that occasionally his divine Royalty flushed out As when in the storm on Galilee As in the red wine at Tho wedding banquet us when he Fred Tho shackled Demoniac of Gudura As when to turned n whole school of fish into to net of Tho discouraged Boatmen As when to throbbed life into the shrivelled Arm of the paralytic but for the most part he was in disguise. No one saw Tho King s jewels in his eau Del no one saw Tho Nyul Robe in his Plain coat no Ono knew that that shelter less Christ owned All Trio mansions in which the hierarchs of heaven Imd their habitation noun knew that that hungered Christ owned All the Olive Groves and All the harvests which Shook their Gold of the Hills of Palestine no one knew that to who said Quot i thirst 1�?� poured the euphrates out of his own chalice no Ono knew Tomt the Ocean Lay in Trio Palm of his hand like a Dewdrop in the Vaso of a Lily no one knew that the stars and Moons and sous and galaxies Aud constellations that in arched on age after Ngo were As compared with Liis lifetime Tho sparkle of u firefly of a summer night no one knew that Tho Sun in Midi Eavon was Only the Shadow of his throne no our knew that his Crown of Universal Dominion wus covered up with a Bunch of thorns. Omnipotence sheathed in u human body omniscience hidden in a human Eye infinite Lovo boating in a human heart Over listing harmonics subdued into a human voice Royalty in masque grandeur of heaven in earthly disguise masks torn off. My subject also impresses me with Bow people put on masks and How to lord tears them off. It wus a terrible moment in the history of this woman of Tirzah when the Prophet accosted her practically saying "1 know who you Are. You Carnot cheat to. You cannot impose non to. Why forgoes to thou thyself to be another a she had a right to ask for Tho restoration of Hor Eon. She had no right to practice that falsehood. It is never right to do wrong. Sometimes you May to Able to conceal an affair. It is not necessary to Tell everything. There is a natural pressure to the lips which seems to i Dicato that silence sometimes is right but for double dealing for moral shuffling for counterfeit and for Sham god has nothing but Aua Bema und exposure. will tear off the Lio. will rip up the empiricism. will scatter the Ambuscade. There Are people who Are just ready to be duped. They seem to be waiting to be deceived. They believe in ghosts. They saw Ono themselves once. They heard something strange in on uninhabited Bonse. Going along the Road one night something approached them in Whito and crossed the Road. They would think it very disastrous to Egonut the number of carriages at a funeral. They heard in a a Iulg a japs House something Itiat portended death in the family. They Bay it is a sure sign of Ovil if a Bat Fly into a room on a summer night or Thoy see the Noou Over the left shoulder. They would not for Tho world us Durako any outer Riso of Friday forgetful of the fact that if Ibey look Over the Calonder of the world Thoy will see that Friday bus been Tho most fortunate Day in All the history of the world. As near is i Cun Tell looking Over the Calendar of the world a history More grand Bright Beautiful things have happened of Friday than any other Day of Tho week. They would not for the world begin anything on Friday. They would not for Tho world go Back to Tho House for anything after they had ouch started. Such Puoplo Are ready to to duped. Ignorance comos along perhaps in the disguise of medical science and carries them captive for there Are always seme men who Havo found some Strugo Aud mysterious Weed in Somo strange Placo and plucked it in the Moonshine Anil thou they cover Tho Board fences with Trio advertisements of Quot elixir Aud "punaecu3�?� and Quot Indian mixtures Quot and a and a unfailing disinfectants and a lightning salves Quot Aud a ointments Quot enough to stau and Sharify and poultice and kill half thu race. They Uro Ull ready to to wrought upon by such impositions. A my friends do not he aiming such dupes. Do not act the part of such persons is i have been describing. Stand Back from All Chi Conory from All imposition. They who practice such imposition shall to exposed in thu Day of gods indignation. They May rear great fortunes but their dapple Grays will by arrested of to Road Somo Lay us was thu ass by the augur of god with drawn sword. Tho Light of the last Day will Shiro through All such subterfuges and with u voice louder Thuu that which accosted this imposition of thu text Quot Como in thou wife of air Buum. Why feign st thou thyself to to in outlier a with a voice louder than that god will Thunder Down into Midnight darkness und doom and death Ull two Nurod men and All charlatans Aud All knaves und All jockeys and All swindlers. Behold How the people put of the masks and behold How the lord Tours them off i Flacil Providence. My subject also impresses to with How precise and accurate und particular am god s providences. Just at Trio to int thut woman entered Tho City Tho child died. Just As it was prophesied so it turned out so it always torus out. Trio event occurs the death takes place Tho nution is born to despotism is overthrown at the appointed time. God drives the Universo with a stiff rein. Events do not just happen so. Things do not go Slipshod. In All Tho Book of gods Providence there is not Ono Quot if. A god s providences Uro never caught in i it Abille. To god Theio Are no surprises no disappointments and no accidents. The most it. Gai Ricaut event Flung out in the Ages is the connecting link to tween two great chains the Chain of Eti Unity past Aud thu Chain of eternity to come. I am no fatalist but i should to completely wretched if i did not Fcc-1 that All the of fairs of my life Are in god s baud and All that pertains to me and mine just As certainly As All Tho affairs of this woman of Ibe text of this child of the text As this King of the text were in gods hand. You May ask to a Hundred questions i cannot answer but i shall until Tho Day of my death believe that i am under Tho unerring care of god Aud the heavens May full and the world May Burn und the judgment May Thunder Aud eternal Ages unit Roll but lot a hair Samll fall from my head not k Shadow Sciull drop on my path not a Orrow shall trans fix my heart without being divinely arranged arranged by a Loving sympathetic father. bottles our tears he catches our sorrows and to the or Liau to will to a father and to Tho widow be will be a husband and to to outcast be will be a Home Aud to the most misery blk wretch thut this Day crawls up out of Tho ditch of his abomination crying for mercy he will to an All pardoning god.

The same old Sarsaparilla As it was made and sold by or. J. C. Ayer co years ago. In the Laboratory it is different. There modern appliances lend Speed to skill and experience. But the Sarsaparilla is the s2me old Sarsaparilla that made the record so years of cures. Why done to we better it Well we re much in the condition of the Bishop and the Raspberry a a doubtless a he said a a god might have made a better Berry. But doubtless also he never Why done to we better the Sarsaparilla we can to. We Are using the same old Plant that cured the indians and the spaniards. It has not Beenke tired. And since tee make Sarsaparilla compound out of Sarsaparilla Plant we see no Way of improvement. Of course if we were making some secret chemical compound we might. But we re not. We re making the same old Sarsaparilla to Curc the same old diseases. You can Tell its the same old Sarsaparilla because it works the same old cures. Its the Sovereign blood purifier and its Ayers. It will Warrn itself by thu Uro of a consuming world. It will sing while Tho Arch ugol s trumpets pealing Forth and the air is filled with Tho crash of broken sepulchres Aud the Rush of the wings of Trio rising dead. Of May god Comfort Ull this people with this Christian Scenti me lit 1 new artificial silk. It lit made from Wood pulp old rage and Vigo table Waite. An interesting new product to to loan at the Philadelphia museums 233 South fourth Street is artificial silk which is Mado from Wood pulp old rags Cotton stalks Aud various other sorts of vegetable waste. From information received from correspondents to museums Uro in bled to give a description of the process of this now fabric. All vegetable fiber such As Wood flax Cotton Aud Juto May by a process of digestion Treu Treut by aids and Alkalies a be reduced to what in the Commerce of chemistry is known As Collu Loso. In Ether words they become Micro cellular tissue the subs Tahoe secreted by the living protoplasm of a vegetable Coll in order to form its into sting membrane or cell Wall. Cellulose is indeed Mado from Wood pulp Ibe debris from Cotton Juto and other spinning industries etc., for u variety of commo Ciul purposes and it is this material which is Tho basis of artificial silk. The process of preparation of this fluid is u purely chemical one. It is in Tho subsequent treat Mouton the fluid and its conversion Inlo a textile fiber that Tho main interest centers from an Industrial Point of View. This process is shown in operation upon a machine Whitoll is a modification of Tho Ordinary flier spinning Frame. The fluid a Muddy Yellowish substance is contained in a Glass Jar from which it is conveyed through pipes to a Row of Small Beut Glass tube each having an extremely Fine nozzle or orifice. These tubes Are arranged in a hollow trough of water Tho orifice being beneath the water level. As Tho fluid leaves Tho nozzle Tho water removes 6u per cent of Tho solvent and Tho fluid immediately coagulated and it is drawn off in a remarkably Fine filament of Brilliant Luster Aud when dry of greatest tenacity. Half a dozen such filaments Uro gathered together and spun. The yarn Cun be spun to any thickness of count und a thread it is claimed is of oven diameter throughout us broken and it May to produced of unlimited length. The Artif Ciul silk will stand washing and ironing without losing Luster or without any impairment of color. A company hns been formed to manufacture it with a capital of �108,000. Its works Are near Manchester England. Tho samples now on exhibition at Tho commercial museums show All the patterns that Havo As yet been turned out. It is believed that samples of this fabric Are to to seen nowhere Elso in this country. It is being turned out in England for the South american markets at a Price of 9.1 j Pence it 19 cents per Yard and the fabric is made of a uniform Width of 19 a inches. It seems Likely that Tho now Wood silk will Como into general use for goods in which an attractive appearance is More desired than lasting qualities such of fringe Druid Gimp neckties Ledger. Grant nil the . Of this famous incident there Are two versions. Tho fathers Story runs this Quot when Ulysses was about 12 years old to first Phreno Logist who Ever made Liis appearance in that part of the country came to our neighbourhood. Ono or. Buckner in order to test the accuracy of the Phreno Logist asked him if to would to blindfolded and examine a head. The Phreno Logist replied that to would. So they blindfolded him and then brought Ulysses Forward to Havo his Bead examined. Quot to Felt it Ull Over for some time saying to Lii self it is no very common head. It i i an extraordinary head a at length or. Buckner Brnko in with Tho in Quiry whether Trio boy would be Likely to distinguish himself in mute musics. Quot yes Quot said the Phreno Logist Quot in mathematics or anything else. It would not to Strong if we should see him president of Tho us the Village version of the incident is quite different. With All his shrewdness and Energy the neighbors say there wus a Strain of sing blur guileless less in Jesse Grant. was credulous and simple in the old meaning of the word simple. According to their report or. Buckner was Only putting up a practical Joko on his neighbor Grant As to timid and blushing Ulysses was pushed for word to Tho platform the crowd began to titter and Tho Quick witted lecturer sized non the Garland in Mcclure a. A daunt Young Queen. Here Are three stories of the Young Queen of Hollond illustrative of her outspoken fran Kuss. When she was told of to atrocities of the Duke of Alva Aud of Tho cruel policy of Tho Spanish Kings toward her country she become indignant Aud exclaimed Quot i am very angry und after that the King of Spain must never expect that i shall invite him to my she Speaks ont and fears no one. Her frankness has sometimes caused her to regret her words. For instance on one occasion she was sitting to the Painter Josselin do Jouge when she exclaimed to her Mother in French a Mother this everlasting Painter will bore me to death in after. A few moments the Painter Stop Ped Aud in the Best of French said Quot that will do for who asked by the Prince of Wales daring her visit to England Bow Sho liked Tho English people she replied that she was astonished at their Beau so Nice nud . A i should never have thought it from the specimens i have seen in Hollands in remark thut is said to have amused the Prince greatly. Caviar. Foreign critics of our gastronomy Are disposed to Institute comparisons Between it and that of Tho russians. For some of inuit reason they discern a similarity that has no foundation whatever. They remark upon a common love of caviar. They also cite the habit of both people of breaking or mixing boiled eggs in a Tumbler for breakfast. They claim that we have copied this fashion from the russians although they acknowledge that our method of performing the act is far More d cent than is that of Tho muscovite. This remarkable assertion is made in an English journal. Independent order of eem bit in North America. The objects and Aims.
