Looking at the Midi Highl heavens ten Gigli the eyes of one of tin Nenei evils is unique for Prad i Clity Anil must Sid All to useful thinking Llis h Al is Amos is a seek him that Makeich the Levuli Stan and a country Fanner Amto this text of Tekoa. Lie slowed the Earth and the Grain by a new thrashing Titae Hiiri just invented As formerly tile cattle trial out the Grain. gathered the fruit of the Sycamore inn and scarified it with an Iron comb just before it was gelling Ripe As it was necessary and customary in that Way in take from it the bitterness. was the Soli of a poor Shepherd and stuttered lint before the stammering rustic the philistines and syrians and Piliu milians and Moabite and ammonites and edomite and israelite trembled. Muses was n Law giver. Daniel was a Prince Isaiah a courtier Aud David a King but Amos the author i text was a peasant and. As might be supposed nearly All his parallelism Are pastoral his prophecy full of the odor of new mown Hay. And the rattle of locusts. And the ramble of Earls with sheaves Ami the mar of wild beasts devouring the flock while the Shepherd came out in their defense lie watched the herds by Day and by a a Gilt inhabited a Booth made out of Bushes so that through i la is. Branches lie Enlil see the stars All night Long and was More familiar with them than we who have tight roofs to our houses and hardly Ever Sis the stars except among the tall Brick chimneys of the great towns. But at seasons of the year when the herds were in special danger he would slay out in the i lieu Field All through the darkness his Only shelter the curtain of the night heaven with the Stellar pm Bride pics and silvered tassels of lunar Light. Alum. With Iii herds. What n life of Solitude All alone Wii i his herds poor Amos and at 12 o clock at night hark to the Wolf s bark and the lion s Roar and the Bear s growl and the owl s the Whit the wlm. And the scr int s Hiss Asho unwittingly slops too the thickets. Amos like other herdsmen got the habit of the heavens because it was so Muesli of the time spread out before him. Lie noticed some stars advancing and others receding. associated their Dawn and setting with certain seasons of the year. had a poetic nature and he read night by night and Mouth by month Aud year by year the Pix m of the constellations . But two rosettes stars especially attracted his attention while sealed on the ground or lying i his Back under tie open scroll of the Midnight heavens the pleiades or seven slats Aud Orion. The form r group this rustic Prophet us six Iati a with the Spring us it rises innit tie first of May. The latter he associated with the Winter As it comes to the Meridian it january. The pleiades or seven stars connected with All sweetness and Jov Orion the Gierald of tic tempest. The ancients were the More Apt to study to e physiognomy Aud juxtaposition of the heavenly bodies because Uliey thought they had a special influence upon the Earth and perhaps they were right. If the Moon every few hours lifts Aud lets Down the tides of the Atlantic Ocean and the Eloc Trie storms in lie Sun by All scientific admission Afiz act the Earth Why not the stars have proportionate effect and there Are some things which make me think that it May not have been All superstition which Coin i d Tho movements and appearance of the heavenly bodies with great moral events on Earth. Did not a meteor ran Oil evangelistic errand on the first Christmas night and designate Tho rough Cradle of our lord did not the stars in their courses fight against Sisera was it merely coincidental that before the destruction of Jeras Idem the Moon was hidden for 12 consecutive nights did it merely happen so that a new Star appeared ill Constellation Cassie Mieia and i lieu disappeared just ii forc Charles in of France who was r Kui sible for the st. Bartholomew , in died was it without significance that in the Days of the roman Empire Justinian War and famine were preceded by tile dimness of the Sun which for nearly a year gave no Moro Light than the Moon although there were no Clouds to obscure it astrology after All May have been Soiu Eiling More Ilian a Brilliant heathenism. No wonder that Amos of the text having heard these two anthems of the stars put Down the Stout rough staff of the Herdsman Aud took into his Brown hand and Cut and knotted fingers Tho pen of a Prophet Mill advised i he Recreant people of Liis time to return to god saying a seek him that nuts Etc Tho seven stars and Orion. A this command which Amos gave 7ss years b. C., is just As appropriate i r us 18117 a. D. A god of order. In the first place Amos saw As we must see that the god who made the pleiades am. Orion must he the god of order. It was not so much a Star Here and a Star there that impressed Tho inspired Herdsman hut seven in one group nud seven in the other group. To saw that Uig lit r&Quot.7r night and season after season and decade after decade they had kept step of Light each one in its own place a sisterhood never clashing and never contesting precedence. From the time Hesiod called the pleiades the a seven daughters of Atlas and Virgil wrote in his Jeu Cid of Quot Stormy Orion until now they have observed the order established for their coming and going order written not in the manuscript that May be Pigeon old but with the band of i he. Almighty on Tho dome of the sky so that All nations May rend it order persistent order Sublime order omnipotent order. What a sedative to Yon and me to whom communities and nations sometimes seem going Kellmell Aud the world ruled by some fiend at haphazard and in All directions maladministration Tho god who keeps seven worlds in right circuit for 6,000 years can certainly keep All the affairs of individuals and nations and i i null deals in adjust meet. We had better fret much for Tho peasant s argument of the text was Vigil i. If go id can Lake can of the seven worlds of tie pleiades and the four chief worlds. F Orion lie can probably Lake care of tin one world we inhabit. Of i Feci Viry much As my father Felt one Day when we were going to the country Mill to get a grist ground and i a 1 of of 7 years sat in the Hack part of the Wagon unit our Yoke of oxen my away with us and along a labyrinth Ian Road through the Woods so that i thought every moment we would he dashed to pit yes and i made a terrible outcry of a fright and my father turned to me with a face perfectly Calm Anil said a de will what Are you crying id out 1 guess we can ride As fast As the oxen can and my hearers Why should we lit affrighted and lose our equilibrium in the Swift movement of worldly events get pee rally when we Are assured that it is not amok end unbroken steers that an drawing us on but Tomt order Aud Wise government Are in Taliej Yoke in your Nern potion your Mission your sphere Del the Best Yon eau and then Trust to Gisl Aud if things Are nil mixed and brain is hut and your heart Sirk get some one to go out with you into the Starlight and a Milit a in 1 Lovi in i he pleiades or better than that gel Aud through the Teles Ejmi Sie further hum Amos with the naked Eye could namely 200 stars in the pleiades and that in what is called the sword of Orion there is a Nebula computed to 1� two trillion two Hundred thousand billions of limes linger than the Sun. Of 1� at insure with Tho god who made that and controls All that the wheel of the Feimst equations turning in the wheel of galaxies for a thousands of years without the breaking of a cog. Or the slipping of a bund or the snap of it Axle for your placidity and Comfort through tie lord Jesus Christ i charge a Oil a seek him that the Sconi slurs and tic Coil if Light. Again. Amos saw. As we must see that i in god who made these two group of the t i was the Tel of Light. Amos saw that god was not satisfied with making on Star or two or have stars i but i Quot Mala seven and d that group of words makes another group group after group. To the Pleiade lie adds Orion. It seems Slutt god bikes Light so Well that he Kis is making it. Only one being in the universe knows i he statistics of solar lunar. Sell Lar meteoric creations and that is the creator himself. they have All in Ell lovingly christened each one a name us distinct As the names of your children. A Ruete Leili the number of the stars he Galleth them All by their the seven pleiades Laid names Given to them and they Are a Youe Del in Reheno Elc Ctm Ste rope toy Gutc and main. But think of the billions Ami trillions of daughters of starry Light that god Calls by name As Hicy sweep by Liim with beaming brow Aud Lustrous Robel to fond is god of Light natural Light moral Light spiritual Light again and again is Light harnessed for sym Liliza Tiona Christ the Bright and morning Star evangelization the Daybreak the redemption of nations Sun of righteous lies rising with Healing in his wings. No n and women with so Many sorrows and sins and perplexities if von want Light of Comfort Light of Pardon Light of goodness in Earnest prayer through Christ a Beck him that Lakelli the seven stars Aud Orion Quot again Amos saw. As to must see that the god who made these two arc ii Petign a of stars must be an unchanging god. There had been no change in the Stellar appearance in this hard sum s lifetime and his father a Shepherd reported to him that there had Linen no change in his lifetime. And these two clusters hang Over the celestial Arbor now just a they were the first night that they shone i Tho Deuie Lowers Tho same As when the egyptians built the the top of Urli Icli to watch them the same a when the chaldean calculated the eclipses the same a a when Elilia according to the Book of Job went out to study the Aurora lire alis the same under ptolemaic system and copy Guirau system the same from to Pythagoras and from Pytel Moro to Herschel. Surely a changeless god must have fashioned Tho pleiades and Orion. Of what an Anodyne Miil the aps and Downs of life acid the flux and Reflux of the tides of Prosperity to know that we have a changeless cod a a Tiu same yesterday today and forever a xerxes garlanded and knighted the Steersman of his i mat in the morning and hanged him in the evening of the same Day.

A but the mercy of the lord is from everlasting to everlasting to them that fear him Aud his righteousness unto the children s children of such As keep his covenant and to those who remember Liis to do them. A this moment Quot seek him that Marketh the seven stars Aud a Gull of love. Again Amos saw As we must see that the god who made these two beacons of the Oriental night sky must be a god of love and kindly warning. The pleiades rising in Minsky said to All the herdsmen and shepherds and Husbandmen a come out and enjoy the mild weather and cultivate your gardens and Orion coming in Winter warned them to prepare for tempest. All navigation was regulated by these two constellations. The one said to ship master and Crew a hoist sail for the sea and gather merchandise from other but Orion was the Stone sic Mil and said Quot beef sail make things snug or put into Lui Rhor for the hurricanes Are Gotting their wings As the pleiades were the Sweet evil gels of the Spring Orion was the warning Prophet of the Winter. Oil now i get the Best View of god i Ever had there arc two sermons i never want to preach the one that presents god so kind so indulgent so lenient so imbecile that men May do what they will against him and fracture his every Law and put the pry of their impertinence and rebellion under his to Iron and while they Are spitting in Liis face and stubbing at his heart he takes them ii in his arms Aud kisses their infuriated brow and Cheek saying a of such is the kingdom of the other kind of Sermon i never want to preach is the Ono that represents god ils All fire and torture and thundercloud and with re idiot Pitchfork tossing the human race into paroxysms of infinite agony. The Sermon that. I am now preaching believes in a girl of Loving kindly warning tic god of Spring Anil Winter the god of the pleiades and Orion. Yon must remember unit the Winter is just As important As the Spring. I t one Winter pass without Frost to kill vegetation Aud it in bind the River Sand Snow to enrich our Fields and then you will have to Claige your hospitals Aud your cemeteries. Quot a Green Christmas makes a fat graveyard was the old proverb. Storms to purify Tho air. Thermometer at 3 degrees below Zero to tone up the system. December and january just As important a May and june. I Tell you we need the storms of life As much As we do Hie Sunshine. There Are More men ruined by Prosperity than by adversity. we Laid our own Way in life before this we would have been impersonations of selfishness and Wurl Dinoss and ills gusting sin and puffed up until to would have lieu like Julius Corsar who was made by sycophants to believe that lie was divine and the freckles i Liis face Wen said to Boas the stars of the firmament. Tin a Tel of Orion. One of the swiftest transatlantic voyages made one summer by the Etruria was because she had a Stormy wind Abaft chasing her from new York to Liverpool. But to those going in the opposite direction the storm was a buffeting and a hindrance. It is a bad thing to have a storm Aln ail pushing us Buck but if we be gods children and aiming toward heaven the storms of life will Only Chase us the sooner into the Harbor. I my so glad to believe that Tho monsoons typhoons Mil mistral and sirocco of the land Aud sea Are nut unchained maniacs let Loose upon the Earth but or under divine supervision. 1 am so glad that tin god of the seven stars is also the god of Orion. It was oat of Dante s suffering Caius the Sublime a div Iii Commedia Quot Aud out of .1. I n Milton s blindness came is st Quot and out of miserable infidel attack Eure the a Bridgewater treatise in favor if christianity Aud out of David s exile came the songs of Consolation and out of t lie sufferings of Christ came the possibility of Trio world s redemption. And out of your bereavement your persecution your Pov erties your misfortunes May yet come an eternal heaven. Of what to mercy it is that in the text mid All up and Down of Bible god induces us to look out toward other worlds Bible astronomy in genesis in Joshua in Job in the psalms in the prophets major and minor in st. Juhn s apocalypse practically saying a worlds worlds worlds get ready for them two have a Nice Little world hero that we Slick to As though losing that we lose All. We Aro afraid of falling off this Little raft of a world. We Are afraid that some meteoric iconoclast will some Uig lit smash it Aud to want everything to revolve around it and ure disappointed when we find that it revolves no Ulm the son instead of the Sun revolving around it. What a fuss we make about this Little bit of a world its existence Only a Short time Between two spasms the paroxysm by which it was hurled from chaos into order mid the paroxysm of its demolition. Aud i am glad that so Many texts Call us to look off to other worlds Many of them larger mid grander Aud More resplendent. Quot look there a says Job a at Muz Roth and Arcturus and his sous a a look there a says st. John a at the Moon under Christ a feet a a look there a says Joshua a at the Sun standing still above Giboo a a look there a lays Moses a at the sparkling firmament Quot Quot look there Quot says Amos the Herdsman Quot at Tho seven stars Mil Orion a do not let us he so Sud about those who shove off from this world under Christly Pilotage.

Ayers cathartic pills have from the time of their preparation been a continuous Success with the Public. And that Means that Ayers pills accomplish what is promised for them they cure where other3 fail. It was fitting therefore that the world wide popularity of these pills should be recognized by the worlds fair medal of 1893 a a fact which emphasizes the record so years of cures.

In this neighbourhood ure the ruins of the ancient monastery of the Benedictines and other old buildings used by Tho Brothers most of which Aro also giving Way to Tho ravages of time. At 28 Rue Ravi Guan mine. Ber Lielot keeps a grocery store. She sleeps in a Small chamber in Tho rear that at Ono time wus probably used As an oratory. Mme. Berthelot noticing that the tiles on the floor of the Cumber gave Forth a hollow sound As she stepped upon them Aud thinking that a cellar there would be very convenient for her business sent for a Mason and had the tiles removed. A flight of Stone Steps was revealed leading into a labyrinth of passages. The authorities have now taken Possession of he place and a systematic investigation is being conducted. May a relics have been found and it is that much Light is Likely to to thrown upon the history of Paris during the fourteenth Century. A Lucky diagnosis.

Twenty Ordinary bricks equal a Cubio foot of work when Laid in position. It is a weakness of tic sex Anil they arc frequently very Clever some of Trio oui in who have Jeen convicted of making and poof Tang a queer Quot Money. Women have a weakness for counterfeiting. Trio first Poison Ever executed for that crime was a woman. She was an English woman named Barbara Spencer and was put to death in 1721 for making false shillings. She was strangled and burned at the stake. Curiously enough her accomplices were no quitter d. Nancy Kidd was Ono of Tho most re Muir Pablo Fernalo counterfeiters Over known in this country. She belonged to a family of noted forgers. She carried on her nefarious Trade for More Titan 80 years in Chicago Oil was arrested there Many times. On one of these occasions a lot of fiber paper was discovered on her person. The government officials were completely at a loss to know How Slio had obtained this. Finally she confessed that a chemical solution had a n used to Wash Tho faces of the notes and make them perfectly clean. Thus she was in the habit of taking $1 Hills and changing them into larger denominations. Tho government authorities released her in return for this valuable information Aud for telling them what Tho solution was. However they Hail her shadowed by detectives and finally caught her with $17,000 Worth of counterfeit Money in a Box she was found guilty upon seven different indictments for counterfeiting Aud was sentenced to eight years in the Stato prison where i she finally died. One of the Cleverest tricks Ever played on Uncle Sam was invented by a woman who lived in Philadelphia. Her plan was to Tako $10 and $20 Gold pieces Aud with a Small Drill worked by steam Power to bore ont the insides and then refill them with some base Metal being very careful that they should weigh exactly the right amount when she had finished. This she accomplished by drilling to rough Tho milled Edge of the Coin and then after filling the Hole cover it with a Little of Tho extracted Gold. In this Way she Renado $7.50 on every Eagle and about $10 on every double Eagle. The officials of Tho secret service say that this is Tho safest device Ever invented for cheating the Treasury. Counterfeiting is very Apt to run in families. This of course is natural As a father brings up his Sou or daughter to follow Liis profession. Women who would otherwise be Good Are often led into this sort of crime by marrying men who carry it on As a business. But Somo Timos it works the other Way women teach their husbands Liow to make false Money. This is what happened when Ben Boyd married Mary Ackerman of Indiana. Her father was one of the most successful counterfeiters of his Day and his daughter had a thorough acquaintance with the Art. Mrs. Boyd carefully taught her hns baud All the secrets of the Trade and lie became Oue of Tho most famous forgers of the age. They carried on the business with such a High Ilo Greo of skill that they were not captured Fory. Ars and when at last Tho secret service Hawkshaw did run them Down not a single counterfeit plate Noto or Coin was found in their posse Tsiou when their House was searched $3,000 in goal Money was found.
