They Are called burners lie cause they look like lire lips of Tiro Eves of tire it it of fire. In addition to tin features Ulm Llis i imps which Sugg to a human being there am pinions which suggest the Lith est the swiftest the most buoyant Ami lie most aspiring of All uni Iii Ali gent creation a third. Each seraph had six wings each two of tin wings t or different purpose. Isaiah s dream quivers flashes with these pinions now folded now spread now Luti n in locomotion. Quot with Treain la covered his feet with Twain lie covered his face and with Twain lie did the probability is that these wings were not All used at Oneo. Trio seraph standing hero near Trio throne overwhelmed at the insignia Liatas of Trio paths his feet had Troi Ulon a i Obj att d with the paths trodden the feet of god and with Trio lameness of his locomotion amounting almost Zodeen Pitman compared with tie divine velocity with feathery veil of angelic modesty hides the feet. A a with Twain he Ilid cover the standing there overpowered by the Over Matching splendours of god a glory and unable longer with the eyes to look Nim tin m and wishing those eyes shaded from the Insu Fli Ralile glory Trio pinions gather Over the countenance. Quot with Twain he did cover the Thun is god tells this seraph to go to the farthest out Quot st of immensity on message of Light and love and Joy and get Back before the first Anthem it does nut take the Siriph a great while to spread himself upon the air with Uuiorn gained celerity one stroke of the Wing equal to 10,000 leagues of air.

The brightest Angels of god Are so far in Ileath god Tomt lie charges them with Folly the seraph in far Lem ath god and we so far 1 Ennath the seraph in service we ought to 1�. Plunged in humility utter mid Complete. Our feet How Haggard they have been in the divine service i our feet Liow Many missteps they have taken our feet in How Mouv paths of world Lenetis Aud Folly they Ivo walked neither god nor seraph intended to put guv Dishonour upon that which is one of the masterpieces of almighty god the human foot. Physiologist Ulm anatomist arc overwhelmed at the wonders of its organization. The Bridgewater treatise written by sir Charles Beil on the Wisdom and goodness of god As illustrated in the human hand was u result of the $-10,000 bequeathed in the lust will Aud testament of Tho Earl of Bridgewater for the i Neon age uncut of Christian literature. The world Ronld afford to forgive his eccentricities though he had two dogs seated at his table and though la put six cogs alone in an equipage drawn by four horses and attended by two footmen. With his Large request inducing sir Charles Bell to write so Vul Nuiloa Bookou the Wisdom of god in tin Structure of the human hand the world could afford to forgive his oddities. And the world could now afford to have another Earl of Bridgewater however idiosyncratic if lie would induce some other sir Charles Bell to write a took of the Wisdom Aud goodness of a Sliu the construction of the human foot the articulation of its Bones Trio lubrication of its joints the gracefulness of its lines the ingenuity of its Cartilages the delicacy of its veins the rapidity of its muscular contraction lie sensitiveness of its nerves. I sound the praises of the human foot with that we halt or climb or March. It is the foundation of the physical fabric. It is tiie base of a god poised column. By Ith it the Warrior Una is him self for Battle. With it the orator plants himself for Cul Gium. With it the toilet reach cd his work. With it tiie outraged Stamps his indignation its los Sun irreparable disaster its health an invaluable equipment. If you want to know its value ask the Man whose foot paralysis hath shrivelled or machinery hath crushed or surgeon s knife hath amputated. Tiie Bible honors it. Especial care a lest thou dash thy foot gun just a Stone Quot Quot he will not suffer thy foot to be moved Quot Quot Oliy feet shall not Especial charge Quot keep thy foot when thou guest to tie House of Quot Especial peril Quot their feet shall slide in due connected with the worlds dissolution Quot he shall set one foot on tie sea Aud the other on the wings of humility. Give me tie history of your foot and i will give you tie history of your lifetime. Tell me up what Steps it hath gone Down what Deli cities nud in what roads and in what directions and i will know More about you than i want to know. None of us could endure the scrutiny. Our feet not always a paths of god sometimes in Raths of worldliness. Our feet a Divino and glorious by for usefulness Anil work so often making missteps soc Teu Geig in the wrong direction. God knowing every Slop tie patriarch saying Quot thou hottest n print on the heels of my crimes of the hand crimes of the Tongue crimes of the Eye crimes of the eur not worse than crimes of the i foot Oil we want tie wings of Huuiil-1 ily to cover lie feet ought we not to be into self abnegation la Foro the All searching All scrutinizing All trying Eye of god tie seraph do. How much Mere we Quot with Twain lie covered Tho feet. A All this talk about the dignity of human nature is Braggadocio Ulm sin. Our nature started at tin hand of goil regal but it Inis been pauper Zed. There is a Well in Belgium which once Imd very pure water nud it was stoutly Masones with Stone and Brick hut that Well afterwards became Trio renter of Tho Battle of Waterloo. At the opening of Tho Battle the soldiers with their sabers compelled uni Gardener William Van Kvil Seni to draw water ont of Tho Well for them and it was very pure water. But tie Battle raged Ulm 800 dead and half dead were Flung into the Well for Quick and easy burial so that the Well of refreshment became tie Well of death and Long after ii eople looked Down into the Well and they saw the bleached skulls hut no water. So tie human soul was a Well of Good hut the armies of sin Havo fought no null it and fought across it and been slain and it has become u Well of skeletons. Dead holies dead resolutions dead dead ambitions. An abandoned Well unless Christ shall reopen and purify Olid fill it As the Well of Belgium never was. Unclean unclean. In Vert co.

No wings of reverence Over the face no taking off of slices of holy ground. Yon can Tell furn the Way they talk they could Havo made a better world than this and that Tho god of the Bible shocks every sense of propriety. They talk of the love of god in a Way that shows Yon they believe it does lint make any difference How had a Man is Here lie will come in at the shining Gate. They talk of Tho love of god in away which shows you they think it is a general jail delivery for All tie abandoned mid tie scoundrel by of the universe. No punishment hereafter for any wrong done lure. The Bible gives two descriptions of god and they Are just opposite and they Are. Both True. In one place tie Billie says Gud is love. In another place the Bible st tvs god is a consuming fire. The explanation is Plain As Plain can be. God through Christ is love. God out of Christ is fire. To win the one mid to escape the other we have Only to throw ourselves body mind and soul into Christ a keeping. Quot no Quot says irreverence Quot i want no atonement i want no Pardon i want no intervention i will go up mid face god mid i will Challenge him. And i will defy him mid 1 will ask him what lie wants to do with me.

Reverence for Sham rest Cru re for tie old merely because it is old Rcv Cresco for stupidity however Learned reverence for incapacity however finely inaugurated i have none. But we want More reverence for god More reverence for tie sacraments More reverence for tie Bible More reverence Fot the pure More reverence for the Good. Reverence a characteristic of All great natures. You hear it in tiie Roll of tiie master oratorios. You see it in tiie raphaels and titans Ulm Ghirlandaio. You study it in the architecture of the Alio liars Ulm Christopher by runs. Do not lie flippant about god. Do not joke about death. Do not make fun of the Bible. L o not deride the eternal.

A a who is this god before a form the mul intractable refuse reverence there was on Engineer by the name of Stu Socrates who was in the employ of Alexander the great and he offered to hew a Mountain in the shape of his master tie emperor the enormous figure to hold in the left baud a City of 10,000 inhabit until while with the right hand it was to hold a Basin Large enough to collect All the act Nitoiu torrents. Alexander applauded him for his ingenuity hut forbade the Enterprise because of its to Stiness. Yet i have to Tell you that our King holds Inoue hand All the cities of the Earth Aud All the oceans while he has the stars of heaven for his Tiara. Earthly Power goes from band to baud from in cry i to Henry ii and Henry i from Charles i to Charlesh from Louis i to Louis h and Louis tit but from everlasting to everlasting is god.

Then his mountains sink into mole Hills his Moros eness gives place to jollity he is a Happy Man again. If life does not seem Worth living to you you May take a very different View of it after taking Ayer s Gat Bartis fills. milds everything his .

Quot he Liol Deli tie water in tie hollow of his Tim 111m it Blinn As Yon take a Pitich of Salt or powder Between your thumb and two fingers so Isaiah indicates god takes up the Earth. measures tie dust of the Earth the original there indicating that god takes nil the dust of ail Tho continents Between tie thumb and two fingers. You wrap around your hand a Blue ribbon five Tinich ten times. You say it is Tivo Hund breadth or it is ton hand breadth. So indicates the Prophet god winds Tho Bine ribbon of the sky a Roneid his hand.

It would not do to have too much weight in Europe or too much weight in Asia or too much weight in Africa or in America so when god made the mountains he weighed them. Tho Bible distinctly says so.

Exhilaration in the fact that tie soul has wings As Trio seraph have wings. Yahut is a Wing an instrument of locomotion.

Madrid society Tod buried City Xot nearly cleared of the Debrin of seventeen cent Rhea. At last after perhaps a Century of More or less intermittent work Pompeii the City of ancient roman pleasure has been practically cleared of the volcanic debris of seventeen centuries. Now for the first time since that fatal Day Whoso awful happenings Bulwer depicts so graphically Aud doubtless so truly in ids famous Romance the forum. Which was the Central feature of the place and the Straud Sci Scop Lori the principal suburb can be realized in their Mutual relations. Tie Early work of Clearing the historic City pursued with vigor under Murat a lieu lie found himself temporarily installed a is King of Naples was set Hack from rime to time by new eruptions of a a Esu Vins. As late its 1823 miss Berry records in her journal a a we set ont a Large party for Pompeii. The drive of 14 Miles is very disagreeable notwithstanding the View of Tho Bay Aud the mountains around. The cinders Aud lava of the eruptions lust october 1622 have scarcely yet been swept to each Side of tie streets but Are left on the Roud. Ont Side Pompeii it is half Way up the horses no such impediments now await the traveler and a very prosaic and distinctly dilatory train deposits him at an unpretentious Aud not very cleanly railway station. Except to the highly classical and Ultra enthusiastic Eye the first impressions of Pompeii Are disappointing. The first place of interest which is passed is the so called Basilica supposed to have been used As a Law court but distinct from the tribunals which were at the further Side of the forum of which the construction was not completed when the City was covered up. The most striking feature of this open space is the ruins of the Temple of it uus. A main set of Pompeii lending from the station is that known As tie Straud Dell ate Dava at the Corner of which is to be seen the Chelci dictum or Exchange one of the most Beautiful build a ups As yet revealed its Central Hall having been surrounded by columns of parian Marble. In the Street of tombs however we Are upon More solid ground for not a few of the monuments Lour the names and the busts of those to whose memory they were erected. At tire extreme end of tiie Strain is the so called Tyua of Diomede which has attractions alike for the Lover of fact and fiction for Here were found tie bodies of 17 women and children who had sought Refuge under the portico but were apparently suffocated. The Amphitheater is even farther away from the Center of the town than the kept Lori and it is on this Point that recent excavations have been chiefly directed with very important results. It must be remembered that Bulwer Lytton a was quite accurate in describing tie games which were in Progress at the time of the fatal eruption of Vesuvius which swallowed up both Pompeii and Herculaneum and one of the results of the works carried out Here is to show that the loss of life on that occasion was less than formerly supposed. Tie people assembled at the Amphitheater had time to make their escape to the open country beyond. Scarcely More than 700 bodies have been discovered Aud the perfect state in which Many of them were found is at least negative evidence that time would not have reduced to impalpable dust. Tin activity however of Tho present italian government will not to relaxed until Pompeii has been forced to give up All its secrets Aud in the meanwhile it is Pili us up its treasures of Marble Bronze and Gold and bringing to Light among other facts that portrait painting for mural decoration was a a a need probably by greek artists for to licit roman York Herald. _ lie liken Solitude. Joaquin Miller Lias been in new Orleans recently grizzled Aud Gray but of Young in tiie eyes a a As a 20-year-old youth flushed with Trio victories of a patient Muse Quot so the reporter puts it. The aged Puet said he had no Money and cared fur code but found in nature refreshment for body and mind. Quot it is a life among the solitudes that tinges a Many Saims with sentiment and gives to Bis soul a Light that sordid ambition either drives away or makes impossible Quot said Joaquin. Enjoyable. A do you really enjoy shooting Quot Quot Yyi by yes of course a said the dear girl who had lately bought alight Rifle and a Lovely pair of Hunting bloomers. Quot every time i manage to kill a Rabbit or a poor Little Bird i have just the loveliest Ory Quot i even in Tho Ili Stroh of wartime spin lib any qty Gik. On in Tho Oil Way. Thu Queen Regent of Spain appears nowhere in Public at present except during her saturday drive to a Church where according to ancient custom the Sovereign of Spain goes weekly to Pray a and his Mamma with him so that the Public sees them in route. The Church by the Way like us Liliu churches in Madrid is very ugly and very gorgeous not like tie Noble cathedrals of other Spanish cities. The Infanta Isabella aunt of the King drives daily in the Park the Buon Retiro goes to the Royal theater Aud in general does what she can to preserve Tho look of Gayety which Madrid still wears under the Shadow of War. Quot everything Spanish is for the spaniards. A this favorite adage of the castilian is in Especial Force Ami favor at Madrid at this moment. No european capital is less cosmopolitan than tie capital of Spain. Tho Spanish dislike of foreigners is an ingrained tiling although until the present state of strained relations Between Spain and the United states the spaniards in general showed More liking for our compatriots than for any europeans. The distance and the Freedom of the Esados uni Dos affected the popular Spanish imagination and americans travelling in the iberian Peninsula have found a Quick relaxing of manner of the part of spaniards of first learning that they were Quot not English English a it Quot americans up enking English Quot a relaxing followed often by cordiality. Americans resident in Spain have also come to know Spanish Home life better than other foreigners even in Madrid. In the Southern towns in Andalusia particularly in granada., the cordiality of Tho people has been heightened by a Mutual interest in the America whose mime is now perpetuated in a hotel on Alhambra Hill. To be sure the uneducated in Granada look upon the memory of Washington Irving As More or less associated with that of the moors in whose old place he dwelt. But at All events he was an american Aud brings Many of his country Folk with Money to spend in tie very City where Ferdinand and Isabella who discovered these americans lie entombed. In Madrid there is a More Active knowledge of tiie need of connection with modern life. But there also Pride in a glorious past is much greater Tau Wisdom in present difficulties or courage for tie future. A curious insistence upon things Spanish prevails although the Madrilejo women get most of their external fashions from Paris and the men Mast of theirs from London. But even now in Hie distress of wartime the Especial Gaye tii s of Spanish life go on in their usual distinctive fashion. The society journals record the appearance at tie theater or Park of ten lines of names of Duchesse five lines of Marchi Nesses three lines of Countesse a half dozen Viscount esses three or four bar Nesses Anil a few see oras and transcript. Bag Ivelli in Fin Einor Cju. English speaking residents of peking have heard that the death of Tho express of China Mother of the reigning Sovereign which took place some time ago was due to rage. It is a curious Story. Tiie Empress Mother and tie Empress dowager were Sisters Aud quarrels Between them were frequent As each was striving to gain Ascendancy Over the Young pm Pieror. Eventually i lie dowager withdrew to Elio Park which is some distance from peking Ulm when the emperor went to consult with her of affairs of state she would keep him with her for Days together.
