Sunday morning, as a number

"Tin: victory won with a strange
weapon," discoursed upon by the
pastor of Fort Street Church last
Sunday, was that wrought by Sham
gar when ho did such fearful execu
tion among the marauding Philistines
with an ox-goad. Tho lessons drawn
from the subject were, primarily,
that God chose those who wore faith
ful and elllcicnt in small things to do
his great work; that people should
use the weapons most familiar and
suited to them in lighting the battlo
of life; that they should manfully
surmount obstacles to a right life in
stead of making them an excuse for
shirking duty, and that men doing
good work should not be despised on
account o their birth or humble
training,' nor means contemned be
cause strange or unusual.

A 6CKNi: of surpassing splendor
meets the sight of a visitor to the

fancy goods to no end, all form one
