Ahasuerus knew not that his wife vS
a Jewess. At the instigation of the in
famous prime minister the king decrsH
that all the Jews in the land should

her people, breaking through the ruH
of the court and presenting herself W
the very face ot death, crying, '-If I pflB
ish, I perish!" Oh, it was a sad tifl
among that enslaved people! They hg|
all heard the decree concerning n
death. Sorrow, gaunt and ghastly, mI
in thousands of households, and mothers
wildly pressed their infants to their
breasts as the days of massacre hastened
on, praying that the same sword stroke
whicn slew the mother might also slay
the child, rosebud and bud perishing, in
the same blast.
But Hadassah Is busy at court. The
bard heart of the king is touched by her
story, and although he could not reverse
his decree for the slaving of the Jews he
^ sent forth an order that they should arm
-themselves for defense. On horseback,

giants at the thought of defending mothers

cowards into heroes, and fragile women,
grasping their weapons, swung them

household and country.
The day of execution dawned. Government
officials, armed and drilled,
cowed before the battle shout of the oppressed
people. The cry ot defeat rang
back to the palaces, but above the moun

mangled corpses, sounded the triumph
of the delivered Jews, and their enthusiasm
was as when the highlanders came

My subject affords me opportunity of
illustrating what Christian character
may be under the greatest disadvantages.
There is no Christian now exactly what
he wants ta be. Your standard is much
higher than anything you have attained
unto. If there be any man so puffed up
as to be thoroughly satisfied with the
amount of excellency he has already attained,
I have nothing to say to such a
(Hie. But to those who are dissatisfied
wita past attainments, who are toiling
under disadvantages which are keeping
1?them, from being what they ousht to be,
% I have a message from God, You each
of you labor under difficulties. There is
something in your temperament, in your
calling, that acts powerfully against you.

Hadassah ol the text, a noble Christian,
notwithstanding the most gigantic difficulties.
She whom you jnight have
exi>ected to be one of the worst of women,
one of the best.
In the first place, our subject is an
illustration of what Christian characrer
may be under orphanage. This Bible
line tells a long story about Hadassah.
"She had neither father nor mother."
A nobleman had become her guardian,
bat: there is no one who can take the
place of a parent. Who so able at
nignt to hear a child's prayer or at
twilight to chide youthful wanderings or
to soothe youthlul sorrows? An individual
will go through life bearing the
marks of orphanage. It will require
more strength, more persistence, more
grace, to make such a one the right kind
ot a Christian. Ee who at 40 years
loiies a parent must reel under the blow.
Even down to old age men are accustomed
to rely upon the counsel or be
powerfully influenced by the advice of
parents if they are still alive.
But how much greater the bereavement
when it comes in early life before the
character^ self reliant and when natu*
lALij buo uooib to uuoyjj-uuLaicu
and easily tempted!
And yet behold what a nobility of disposition
Hadassah exhibited. Though
father and mother had gone, grace had
trramped over all disadvantages. Her
willingness to self sacnfics, her control
over the king, her aumility, her faith! ul
worship of God, s'.iow her" to have been
one of the best *)f the world's Christians,
There are those who did not eDjoy
remarkable early privileges. Perhaps,
I like the beautiful capttve of the text,
\ you were an orphan. You had huge
* sorrows in your little heart. Y oa
\ sometimes wept in t.!ie night when you
- kn?w not what was the matter. Yen
felt sad sometimes even on the playground.
Your father or mother did not
stand in the door to welcome you when
you came home from a long journey.

Again oar eubjsci is an illustration oi
what religion may be under the pressure
ol poverty. The captivity and crushed
condition of this orphau gui and of the
kind man who adopted her susgest a
condition of poverty. Yet from the very
first acquaintance w e had with Hadassah
we find her the same happy and contented
Christian. It wa3 only by comoulsion
she was afterward taken into a
j sphere (f hoaor and i fHience. la the
| humble home of Mordecai, her adopted
father, she was a light that illurniaed
every privation. In some period iQ almost
every man's lifo there com;s a
season of straitened circum3tarc;s, when
the severest calculation and most scraping
economy are necessary in order to
subsistence and respectability.
At the commencement of business, at
the entrance upon a profession, when
friends are few and the world is afraid
ot you bjciu?e there is a pos3io'lity of
failure, many of the noblest hearts have
struggled a?alnst poverty and are cow
struggling. T.) sush I bear a measaae
ot good cheer. You say it 13 a hard
thing for ycu to be a Christian. This
constant atx'ety, this unresticg calculation,
wear out the buoyancy ot your
spinfc, and, although you have told perhaps
no ene about it, cannot I tell that
this is the very trouble which keeps, you
ought to be? Ycu have no time to think
about laying up treasures in heaven

ther you will be enabled to pay your
next quarter's rent. You cannot think
of striving after a robe of righteousness
until you can get means enough to buy
an overcoat to keep out the cold. Y ou
want the bread of life, but you think you
cannot afford to smoke, you can afford
to whistle. Bat merely animal spirits
are not sufficient; the power of the gospel?that
is what you want to wrench
despair out of the seul and put you forward
into the front cf the hosts incased
in impenetrable armor.
Again, our subject illustrates what
religion may be under the temptation of
personal attractiveness. Toe inspired
? _ - - n -.1- . 1 . _ r i l
record says 01 lue ceroiuo ui my ie.x.i,
"She was fair and beautiful." Her very
name signified "a mvrtae."^ V~*t <*10 ?r>world
did not blight her humility. The
simplicity of her manners and behavior
equaled h:r extraordinary attractions.
It is the same divine goodness which
puts the tinge on the rose's cheek, and
the whiteness into the lily, and the gleam
on the wave, and that puts color in the
chesk, and sparkle in the eye, and ma
jesty in the forehead, and symmetry
into the form, and gracefulness into the
gait. But many through the very charm
of their personal appearance have been
destroyed. What slmperings and effects
tions and impertinences have often been
the result of that which God 3enc as a
blessing! Japonicas, anemones and
heliotropes never swagger at the beauty
which God planted ia their very leaf,
sepal, axil and seamen. There are
many ftowers that bow down so modestly
ycu cannot see the color in their
cheek until you lift up their head, puttin?
your haad under their round chin.
Indeed any kind of personal attractions,
whether they be those of the body, tha
mind or the heart, may become temptax?
?zi j ?w:*. :?
nous vj priue auu acuiuauu-is sou iww
The mythological story of a man who,
80sinz himself in a stream, became so
enamored of his appearance that he died
of the ejects illustrates th6 fatalities under
which thousands of both sex?s have
fallen by the view of their own superiority.
Extraordinary capacities cause extraordinary
temptations. Men who have
good moral health down in the valley,
on the top of the mountain are seized of
consumption. Monimia, the wife of
Mithndates, was strangled with her own
diadem. While the most ot us will not
have the same kind of temptation which
Hadassah mu3t have fait from her attrac
tiveness of personal appearance, there
may be some to whom it will be an advantage
to hold up the character of the
beautiful captive who sacrificed not her
humility and earnestness of dispoiton to
the world's admiration and fl alter. The
chief sceret of the beauty of the violet
is that away down in the grass from one
amJ *-a narrof miofrrtofo I
VYCC&'S CUU tu auVCLigi lit LJ OTU but9viug?o
that it is a violet.
Again, oar subject exhibits what religion
may be under bad domestic influences.
Hadassah was snatched from the
godly home into which she had been
adopted and introduced In the abominable
associations of which wicked Ahasnerus
was the center. What a whirl of
blasphemy and drunkenness and licentiousness!
No altar, no prayer, no Sabbath,
no Gcd! If this captive girl can
be a Christian there, then it is possible
to be a Christian anywhere. There are
many of the best people of the world
who are obliged to contend with the
most adverse domestic influences, children
who have grown up into the loye of
fJrv?nnrfp.r t.h? frnwn r>f r>q.rpnt:? nnr? tin?
der the discouragement of bad example.
Some sister of the family having profess
ed the faith of Jesus is the subject ot unbounded
satire inflicted by brother ahd
sisters. Yea, Hadassah was not the
only Chritian who had a queer husband.
It is no easy matter to maintain correct
Christian principles when there is a
companion disposed to scoff at them and
to ascrioe every imperfection of character
to hypocrisy. What a hard thing for
one member of the family to rightly keep
the Sabbath when others are disposed
to make it a slay of revelry, or to inculcate
propriety of speech in the minds of
children when there are others to offset
the instructions by loose and profane utterances,
or to be regularly in attendance
upon church when there is no more
household work demanded for the Lord's
3 xi i ^ j T"\ _ T
aay man ior auy secular aay. ?jv jl

Mv subject is full of encouragement.
Vast responsibilities rest
upon you. Be faithful, though you stand
as much alone as did Lot in Sodom, or
Jeremiah in Jerusalem, or Jonah in
Xineveh, or Badassah in the court of
Ahasuers. There are trees wliich grow
???BBM !!! ?
the b?st when their roots clutch among
the lagged rocks, and you verily have
bat poor soil id which to develop, but
grace is a thorcuzh husbandman and can
raise a crop anywhere. Glassware is
molded over the fire, aid in the same
way yoa are to be fitted as a vessel of
m?rf>"C7 'T'h* K(?at. t.imhfr mnut have on
it saw and gouie and beetle. The foun!
dation etone of yours and every other
house came cu* only under crowbar and
blast. F.les and wrenches and hammers
belong to the church. The Christian
victory will b5 bright jun in proportion
a3 the battle is hot. Never de3
pair being a thorough Christian in any
household which is not worse than the
court of Ahaauerus.
Fmaliy cur subject illastrates what
religion may be in high worldly position.
The last we see in the Bibleof Hadissah
is that she has become the queen of
Persia. Prepare now to see the departure
of her humility and 3elf sacrifice and
religions principle. A3 she goes up you
may expect grace to go down. It is easier
to be humble in the obscure hou3e of her
adopted father than on a thorne of dominion.
But you misjudge this noble
woman. What she was before she is
now?'.he myrtle. Applauded for her
r>eauty and her crown, she forgets not
the cause of her sufferiag people, and
with all simplicity of heart still remains
a worshiper of the God of heaven.
Noble example, followed only by a
very fe.v. I address soma who, through
the goodness of Go3, have risen to positions
of ioflaencs in the community
where yon live. In law, io msrchandise,
ia medicine, ia m;chanic3 and in other
useful occupations and professions you
hold an influence for good or for evil.
Let us see whether, like Hadassah, you
can stand elevation. Have yon as mnch
simplicity of character as once you evidenced?
Do you leel as much dependence
upon G-od, as much your own
weakness, as much your accountability
for talents intrusted? Or are you proud
and overdemanding and uagrateful and
unsympathetic and worldly and sensnal
and devilish?- Then you have been
spoiled by your success, and you shall
not sit on this throne with the heroine of
my test. In the day when Hadassah
shall come to the grander coronation in
the presence of Christ and the bannered
hosts of the redeemed you will be poor
indeed. Oh, there are thousands of
man whn pan v Minora to bfl knocked
down of misfortune, who are utterly destroyed
if lifted up of success. Satan
takes them to the top of the pinnacle of
the temple and shoves them ofi. Their
head begins to whirl, and they l03e their
balance, and down they go.
While last autumn all through the forests
there were luxuriant trees with
moderate oulbranch and moderate height
pretending but little, there were foliage
plants that shot far op, looking down
with contempt on the whole forest, clap,
ping their hands in the breezsand shouting,
. "Aha, do you not wish you were
as high up a3 we are?" But last week
a blast let loose from the north came
rushing along, and grappling the boasting
oaks hurled tnem to to the ground,
and a3 they went down an oid tree that
had bean singing p3lams with the thunder
a hundred summers cried out, "Pride
2oeth before destruction and a haughty
spirit before a fall." And humble hickory
and pine and chestnut that had never
said their prayers before bowed their
heads as much as to say, "Amen."
My friends, "God resisteth the proud,
but giveth grace to bumble." Take from
-my subject encouragement. Attempt the
8ervr??_of God whatever your disadvantages,
anii-*?hatever our lot let us seek
that grace whicfcrd&shone all the splend?r3
of the palaces oFSkushan.

The Georgia Elec'lio.
The election over in G?or*is last
week wa3 not as decisive a Democratic
victory as we had hoped for. The
populists nude decided gains all over
the State, and we fear tnat they will
capture two of the Congressional districts,
which the Democracy can ill
afford to lose at this time. We have
"inn OQT7<3I?O1 rmonna Qoatnrno^ -for the
OCCU OU?V,lU* iVAJVUU A.V*. VUV
result of the election, but the nearest
to the true reason for the heavy Populist
gains we think are those advanced
by tbe Spartanburg Herald. The
Herald thinks that one of the main
causes that led to such a material re
duction of the usual Democratic majority
is to be found in Democratic
apathy, which caused many Democrats
to stay away from the polls. "There
has," says the Herald, "been a sharp
fight made for and against the administration
of Mr. Cleveland in Georgia
and this has had the effect of driving
many into the Populists' ranks. There
13 an element in Georgia that persistently
refuses to see any good in the
national administration. Envy, jealousy
and disappointment are at the
bottom of this but it has had its weight
no doubt. Then again, there are those
who not only insist on fighting anything
that appears to be a criticism of
the administration, but In contending
for Mr. Cleveland's financial views
have misrepresented the Democratic
party, and this we believe to be responsible
very largely for Populist gains in
Georgia. If these people persist in the
attempt to make it appear that the
Democratic party is pledged to the
single gold standard, with its attendant
tram of evils, paralyzing trade,
grinding the poor, oppressing the weak,
yirtVionH fho riAfvr
LUOJkllig UUO ll^U i.IVUV^ m*v? wuv
poorer, we may expect as many of the
honest farmers, mechanics and producers
of Georgia as are thu3 misled
to seek the Populist party for relief.
If we believed the Democratic party
stood for the John Saerman, Eastern
gold bu? policy, we would join the
Populists or some party that did rep u
diate these views. The Democratic
party is not the party of contraction
and centralization. It opposes the
concentration of power in the hand3 of
the few, it calls to the protection of the
masses and the enactment of such
measures as will bring: the qneatest
good to the greatest number." These
are strong word3, but they are as true
as preacaiog. The people are deter
mined to have relief from the oppression
of the money kings. They would
like that relief to be obtained through
the Democraticparty.butif that party
fails to give it to them they will seek
it through some other party.

Wilson then went to one D. R. Steedley's

Board of Control, Columbia, S. C.
'Honored Sir: I notice through the
papers that the Ac!; of 1893, known as
the Dispensary Act, has bsen declared
jooa and valid- by the Supreme Cjurt
3f this State. You no dou:3t remember
that jast previous to the rendition of
the decision in McOullough vs. Brown,
in which the Act of 1892 was declared
unconstitutional, I called at your cffice
in obedience to a sum mans from you
and, while there, the situation in Florence
was discussed relative to the profits
which, under the law, should be
turned over to this city. I endeavored
then tostate to you fully my action relative
to the enforcement of the law at
this place,to wit: That wa had always
furnished the constables with all the
aid desired by them for their protection
and assistance in the performance of
their duties here; and that the County
Board of Control, who had Kept a sharp
watch over my conduct, had stated to
you by letter that we should receive our
profits as they had made thorough investigation
of the matter and were satisfied
that the city authorities had done
what they could to suppress the illicit
traffic of liquors in tms cicy. xouno
doubt remember statin? to me on that
occasion that you would order our
profits turned over to us and desired
our co operation in the enforcement of
the law. The next day the above decision
was filed and since then everything
has been taking its own course
here and elsewhere, and nothing further
has pissed between us concerning
the profits and the enforcement of the
law. Since this law has now received
the sanction of the highest court in the
State it will be necessary for all citizens
to bow to it. To enforce it will be a
difficult task to those who have it in
charge and it wiil take no doubt the
combined efforts of the State, county
and city autnorities to give the law the
effect aimed at, to wit: Absolutely confining
the sale of whiskey to the Dispensaries,
but with the co-op?ration'"bf
these it occurs to me that it might be
enforced without friction and without
mucb expense. My reason for saying
this is as follows: Numbers of the
best people in this city are in sympathy
*b<a lom lr>H TX71II QaQ1 <31" in lf.Q PT1
forcement if properly treated and will
aid in the conviction of tbe parties who
violate it. 1 am quite satisfied that if
the State Board of Control will turn
over to us tbe profits now due U3, which
we are justly entitled to, and we get
our portion of the profits hereafter
made, the illicit traffic in whiskey in
the city of Florence can be suppressed
with the aid of one State Constable.
The reason is that when our best citizens
find that they will be benefited and
their taxes lessened by the profits derived
from tbis source they will heartily
join in with^the city authorities and
S2e that this law is properly carried
out and by that meaos we will all b9
benefited. I would like to hear from
you as to whether you do not think
that the views herein expressed reason- i
able and whether the request mide not
just and proper. Your kind attention
will be greatly appreciated by
"Your obedient servant,

"Dear Sir: Your letter of October
10, enclosing a copy of tbe resolutions
passed by your city council received.
After consultation with the Attorney
General who is a member of the State
Board of Control, I desire to say that
it is the purpose of the State Board to
encourage in every way possible the enforcemsnt
of tbe Dispensary law by the
municipal authorities of the different
cities and towns in the State.
"We would be glad to dispense with
the use of constaoles entirelv if possible*
'In reference to the profits whlcb
would have been due to the city of
Florence had the law been enforced
there to our satisfaction, and wbich
you ask to have paid to yOu now, we
cannot agree that it is either just or
proper, because the State, solely by
reason of the nesdect of duty.on the part
of the police, suffered a heavy loss by
the looting of the Dispensary at Florence
last April. Bat we are willing to
let bygones be bygones and if the city
authorities will act in good faith in the
future, the share of the profits to which
you are entitled under the law will be
cheerfully paid you. We do not want
it, and would never have ordered it
withheld last spring had we not felt
that the police of your city were derelict.
I must presume that your offer
was made in good faith and hope there
will be no cause of complaint on either
side In the future. One.of the best
constables on the force is now in Florence,
and if you will co operate with
him there is no doubt that the illicit
sale of whiskey can be stopped, and the
morals and good order of your town
improved. I am,? Very respectfully,

trunk beinjj hauled from Eiel's residence
to the Manson House and found
i i full of export beer. They were informed
by the driver that th^re was
other liquors at Eiel's house. They obtained
a warrant to search, but the
Sheriff refused to execute it The constables
then went to his house. Elel
had heard of the affair and had gone
home, sending the negro ahead of him
with a double-barreled shotgun. A.
crowd had gathered in front of the
house when the constables reached
there. The chief of police fearing trouble.
concentrated the whole force on
the scene. Edel from his piazza announced
that he would blow out the
brains of the first man who tried to enter.
People who by this time had filled
the streets cheered him wildly.
On going back into the house E lel
found his wife, who is neariog confine
ment. in a faint and got the idea she
was dyiHg. Some of nis friends had
hid his gun and he rushed from his
house empty-handed, but apparently
half filled with rage. He struggled des
perately with soms of his friends who
were on tb* piazza and who seizad him.
Constable Eichelbeiger, who was on the
outside of the fence waiting tor Constable
Workman, who had gone to have
an error in the warrant corrected, supposed
Eiel was coming with his gun
and drew his pistol. The crowd im
mediately closed in on him and many
men were prepared to shoot the constable
if h8 made a move. The police
gathered about him, howeyer, and the
chief put him under arrest charged with
drawing a pistol on a citizen. This action
prevented trouble. When the
people saw the constables in charge of
the police they dispersed.. Eichelberger
gave S50 bail for his appearance in th8
Mayor's Court to-morrow. The SnerifE
offered to make search if allowed to go
to Edel's alone, but the constables iosist
ed tnat one of them snoma accompany
him and he refa&ed to consent, claiming
that he needed no help, and that-the
presence of the constable would canse
a liot unnecessarily. The Mayor also
declined to give the constables police
assistance. The constables reported to
the Governor and are awaiting instructions.
There is a goo J deal of suppressed excitement.
Some? people Say that the
search of Edel's. house should be submitted
to on the ground that ne ,was
using it as a storage place for liqaors
to be sold-at his bar. A-great majority
contend that all searches of .private
houses of respectable people should be
resisted to the'last extremity. Constable
Workman seems to think he'could
have made the search it he had been
allowed to go aione and quietly as he
intended and thatConstabl&EichelDenr
er's gomg to the house spoiled his
plans. The .determination .to resi.3t
searches of' residences by constables
