an uninterrupted growth of several days
while the other is being fed. This in
turn will offer fresh feed while the first
is getting a rest, and so, alternately
through the growing season.

Babylon was the paradise of architecture,
and driven out from thence the grandest
buildings of modern-times are only the evidence
of her fall. The site having been
selected for the city, two million men were
employed in the rearing of her walls and the
building of her works. It was a city sixty
miles injcircumference. There was a trench
all around the city from which the material
for the building of the city had been digged.
There were twenty-ftve gates on each side
the city; bet-wen every-two gates a. tower o?

gate on the oue side,* street running straight
through to the corresponding gate on the
other side, so there Were -fifty streets fifteen
miles long. Through the city ran a branch
of the river Euphrates. This river sometimes
overflowed its banks, and to keep it
from the ruin of the city a lake was constructed,
into which the surplus-water of this
river would rim during the time-of freshets,
and the water was kept in this artificial lake
until time of drought, and then- this' water
would stream down over the cily. At either
end of the bridge spanning the Euphrates
there was a palace?the one palace a mile
and a half around, the other palace seven

deep that a Lebanon cedar had room to anchor

That is ou one bide. That side comes down,
and the church, not being abje to stand the
test, rises in the balances. It does not mike
any difference about your magnificent ma?
chinery. A church is built for one thing?to
save souls. If it saves a few souls when it
might save a multitude of souls, God will
spew it out of His mouth. "VVeiglied and found
wanting! So God "estimates nations. How
many times He has put the Spanish monar chy
into the scales, ana found it insufficient and
condemned it! The French Empire was
placed ca .one side the scales and God weighed
the French Empire, and Napoleon said:
"Have I not enlarged the "boulevards? Did I
not kindle the glories of the Champs Elvsees*

weighed that nation, and he put on one side
of the scales the Emperor and the boule*
vards, and the Tuileries, and the Champs
Elysees, and the gilded Opera House, and on
the other s>de he put that man's abomination,
that man's libertinism. that man's selfishness,
that man's godless ambition. This last cam*
down, all the brilliancy of the scene vanished.

a physician conies into a sick room, does he
treat disease in the abstract? No; he feels i

balances of the sanctuary. They are lifted,
and we must all be weighed. Who will- come
and be weighed first? Hera is a moralist-who
volunteers. He is one of the most upright
men in the country. He comes. Well, my
brother, get in, get into the balances now
and be weighed. But as he gets into the
balances, I say: "What is that bundle you
have along with you?" "Oh," he says, 4ithat
is my reputation for goodness; and kindness,
and charity, and generosity, and kindliness
generally." "u my Droraer: we canuui/

moralist. Paid your debts?" "Yes," you
say, "paid all my debts." "Have you acted in

yes." "Have you been tend to "the poor?
Axe you faithful in a thousand relations in
life?' "Yes." "So far so good. But now,
before you get out of this scale I want to ask
you two or three questions. "Have your
thoughts always been right?" "No," you say
"no." Put down one mark. "Have you loved
the Lord with all your heart, and soul, and
mind, andstrengtn?" "No,"you say. Make
another mark- "Come, now, be frank and
confess that in ten thousand things you
have come short?have you not?"
" Yes." Make ten thousand marks.

Still, the balances of the sanctuary are suspended
and we are ready to weigh any who
come. Who shall be the next? Well, here is
a formalist. He comes and he gets into the
balances, and as he gets in I see that all his
religion is in genuflexions and in outward
observances. As he gets into the scales I
say: "What is that you have in this pocket?"
' Oh,"hesays, "that is Westminster Assembly

Bays, "that is the Heidelberg Catechism."
"Veiy good. "What is that you have under
your arm, standing in this balance of the
sanctuary?" "Oh," he says, "that is a church
record." "Very good. What are all these
books on your side the balances?" "Oh,"' he
says, "those are 'Calvin's Institutes.'" "My
brother, we are not weighing books; we are
weighing you. It cannot be said that you are
depending for your salvation upon your orthodoxy.
Do you not know that the creeds
and the forms of religion are merely the scaffolding
for the building? Tou certainly are
not going to mistake the scaffolding for the
temple. Do you not know that men have gone
to perdition with a catechism in their pocket?"
"But" says the man, "I cross myself often."
"Ah! that will not save you." "But," says
the man, "I am sympathetic for the poor."
"That will not save you." Says the man,
"I sat at the communion table."
"That will not sgve you." "But,"
says the man, "I have had my name
on the church records." ''That will
not save you." But I have been a professor
of-religion forty years." "That will not save
you. Stand there on your side the balances
and I will give you the advantage?I will let

the scales, the balances. And then there is a
flash as from a cloud, but it is the glitte r of
the shining balances, and they are hoisted,
and all nations are to be weighed. The un
forgiven get in on this side the Daiances.
They may have weighed themselves and pronounced
a flattering decision. The world

in God's balances?the balances that can make

Some of the wells already flowing gave
out 4000 gallons a minute. If the yearly
flow of those wells could be saved and
stored in reservoirs,to be used as needed,
so as to supply in the growing season the
deficiency in the natural rainfall, it would
add enormously to the development of
agriculture and turn the entire James
River Valley into a luxuriant garden.
One thousand such wells, Professor Maclouth
says, would add $400,000,000 to
the value of the land in that region.

A Pennsylvania Idolater.
Within a stone's throw of one of the
largest churches, and near the centre of
Reading, Penn., there is an unpretentious
dwelling it which an idolater
has just been discovered.
His name is William Klemmer, and.
he lives with wife and six children at
614 Locust street. Beneath his house is
1 * ' a r\r\ .n
a large ceuar containing 4tuu iaois 01 an
sizes and shapes imaginable.
Most of then* are clay ligures, life-size'
and of grotesque appearance. Klemmer
has idols dedicated not only to his friends
bnt also to his enemies. Some article of
food is placed in each to avoid the
necessity of feeding. With the different
collections of images is a pocketbook,
supposed to contain money to satisfy the
wants of the gods when obliged to travel.
From the ceiling is suspended a huge
jvooden arm, Klemmer's "guiding hand,";
to which he looks for directions.;
Klemmer worships these images daily
