Evening £tat* gmintal
March 11, 1871
the Baptist Union, at Cambridge, tho other
day, Mr. Spurgeon said :"I recommend j
every young minister to make preaching j
his first business. Tho pulpit is the Ther
moplym of Christendom. Your people may
grumble that you don't go about and drink
as many cups of tea at their houses as they
would liko. If you give them good food
on the Sabbath they will put up with a
good deal. If the Sabbath joint is only a
grim scrag of mutton, with plenty of
divisions and nothing todivido—(laughtoi),
you will soon discover that your people
will not bo satisfied. In the next place, do
not neglect visitation. It Is true that I
cannot visit my 4,350 members. But my
visitation is done by the elders.
Next let mo say a word or two to the
people. It is a remarkable fact that min
isters of the Gospel aro not able to live on
much less than other people. (Laughter.)
They cannot make a shilling go as far as
other people can make a sovereign. Some
of them try very hard, but do not succeed.
A member once said to a minister who
wanted a little more salary as his family
increased, "I did not know that yon
preached for money." "No, I don't," said
tho minister. "I thought you preached
for souls." "So I do ; but I could not
live on souls—(laughter)—and if I could it
would tako a good many tho size of yours
to make a meal." (Renewed laughter.) j
Spiritual. Coldness in Churches.—
When we examine tho surfaco indications
about us, we aro astonished at the little
interest that church members have in each
other as such. Iv many cases those who I
enter a Christian church aro left to strug
gle into acquaintainship as best they may,
left to battle with their embarrassments
without a sympathetic look or ji cheering
word. And if members aro tempted
astray, no ono feels under obligations to
call or to lead them back to the fold again.
Not a fovv will stand ready to say, rather
complacently than Christianly:
" Just as I expected. I told you so.
If there were no youthful and inoxpori
enced disciples, no timid, trembling follow
ers of Jesus—if religion were a something I
to loungo in, or promenade through, in
more luxury and show—if going to heavon
were nothing more than a torchlight pro
cession—then persons might choose their
comrades and adopt their regalia and mot
toes according to their tastes and times. —
Rev. Alexander Clark.
AH the while the truth is this : "They
wore frozen," and as long as criticism,
censure, judgment, exaction as a tax, de
votion dunned out as toll, aro permitted to
chill the church, just so long will young
and tender communicants bo killed by tho
frost. Tbero is too much spiritual Novem
ber in our churches."
It were well if those who always talk to
the heart recollected that men have heads
as well. Now, the Saviour was a preacher
whose head was in his heart, and whose
heart was in his head. He nover addressed
tho emotions except by motives which
commeuded themselves to the roason, nor
did he instruct the mind without at the
Bamo time influencing tho heart and con-
It is an old saying that charity begins at
home; but this is no reason that it should
not go abroad ; a man should live with
the world as a citizen of the world ;he
may have a preference for the particular
quarter, or square, or even alley, in which
ho lives, but ho should have a gODeroos
feeling for the welfare of the whole.— Oam-
Christians, whose social relations aro all I
ofthecliquo order, know not how seriously
they fail of tho spirit of the Master, how
much good within easy reach, they fail to I
do in the world, and how many sources of
good to themsolves aro at the very doors.
Ho that is greatest among you let him bo I
tho servant of all.— lnterior.
How strong our churches would become
if all were baptized with the spirit of this I
resolve: "By divine grace I will act as I
though there was no other one to act, I
waiting no longer for others."
Some men tnako a great flourish about
always doing what they believe to be right,
but always manage to believe that is right
which is for their own interest.
Learn to have not one life for God and
another ior the world ; but let your life
bo divinely devoted and divinely quicken
ed. Let every footstep bo a walk with

On Monday, Capt. Williams, a mulatto,
commanding a company ot militia, was ta

number of his men inhumanly whipped.
Tho negroes retaliated, and since then

Whitehead reports that the negro militia
company commanded by Williams wore
defeated on Monday night, and nod to his
camp at Yorkvillo. He disarmed them, aud
now reports to the Governor for orders.

Tibtoes of Borax.—lt may not be I
erally known how very valuablo borax I
in various purposes of household nse.
Wo find it the very best cockroach exter- I
minator yet discovered. One-half pound,
costing but fifty cents, has completely
cleared a large house formerly swarming
with them, so that the appearance of one I
in a month is quite a novelty. The vari
ous exterminating powders puffed and ad-
Rsd have been found not lully effect
ending rather to make the roaches
than to kill them. Thore is some
thing peculiar, either in tho smoll or touch
of borax, which is certain death to them.
They will llee in terror from it, and never
appear again where it has once been
placed. It is also a great advantage that
borax is perfectly harmless to human be
ngs ; hence no danger from poisoning.
t is also valuablo for laundry purposes.
The washor-women of Holland and Bel
gium, so proverbially clean, and who get
heir linen poboautifully white, use refined
>orax as washing powder instead of soda,
n the proportion of a large handful of
rorax powder to ten gallons of water.
?hoy save soap nearly one-half. All tho
argo washing establishments adopt the
same mode. For laces, cambrics, etc., an
extra quantity of the powders is used ;
and for cripplines (requiring to be made
stiff) a strong solution is necessary. Borax,
being a neutral salt, does not in the slight
est degree injure tho texture of linen. Its
effect is to soften the hardest water, and
therefore it should be kept ou the toilet
table. As a way of cleaning the hair, ,
nothing is better than a solution of borax
in water. It leaves the scalp in a most j
cleanly condition, and the hair is just [
! sufficiently stiffened to retain its place.
This stiffness, however, «an bo readily re
moved, if objectionable, by washing with
water. Borax is also an excellent dentri
ce; dissolved in water, it is ono of tho
best tooth-washes. In hot countries it is
used, in combination with tartaric acid
nd bicarbonate of soda, as a cooling bever-
Science en Deshabille. —Wo cannot
vouch for the truth of the following story
n the American Journal of Ohemistry, but I
t is too good to be lost:
When tho stereoscope was invented, the
Abbe Moigno took the instrument to
Arago, and tried to interest him in it; but
Arago unluckily had a defect of vision
hat made him see double, so that looking
nto tho stereoscope he saw only a medley
of four pictures. The Abbe then went to
Savart, but ho was quite a3 Incapable of
appreciating tho thing, for ho had but one
eye. Becquerol was next visited, but ho
was nearly blind, and consequently cared
but little for the new optical toy. Tho
Abbe, not discouraged, called next upon
'ouillet, of tho Conservatoire dcs Arts et
Metiers. He was a good deal interested iv
he description of the apparatus, but un
ortunately he squinted, and therefore
could see nothing in it but a blurred miz
uro of images. Lastly, Biot was tried,
iut Biot was an earnest advocato of the
corpuscular theory of light, and until ho
could be assured that tho new contrivance
did not contradict that theory, ho would
not see anything in it. Under the circum
stances, the wonder is the stereoscope ever

1 From A. W. Mills, a prominent and well-known mer
chant of Norfolk, Va.
No. 11 Main Street, Norfolk, Va., Sept. 16,188».
DR. J. J. LAWRENCE—Dear Sir: Your Koskeo
1 has worked wonders In my family. My daughter has
beon a sufferer from Scrofula since childhood. She
1 lost thirty-one pieces of bone from her ankle, several
from her srnijbesiden having ulcere in several parts
of the body. Whilst in this condition she commenced
taking your Koskoo—it actod like a charm on her;
under its nse tbe ulcers gradually healed,and he*
keneral health groatly improved. It certainly saved
her much suffering, t.iid perhaps her life. 1 regard
Koskoo a specific for all Bcrofulous affections. Youi
Koikdoalso enrol my wife of dyspepsia, from which
she suffered greatly. She Is now in better health
than she has been in five years.
With the highest regard,
I aro gratefully yours, Ac,

DR. J. J. LAWRKNCK— Dear Sir: I have useo
your Concentrated Fluid Extract ot Koskoo In my
practice with the happiest results. I find it to be j
a powerful Liver Invigorntor, Blood Purifier, and
Nervons Tonic. In all diseases of the Liver, Srcofa
lous, Syphilitic, and Nor revs Affections, it is a remedy
of Immense value ; in fact, In almost overy variety ■
at Chronic Disease is use its indicated. Hoping yet
may meet with the success which you deserve see

DR. J. J. LAWRENCE—Doar Sir: My son has re
ceived so much benefit from your wonderful Koskoo
that 1 cannot refrain from expressing my gratitude.
I bad tried almost everything without benefit- I be
lieve, in all sincerity, that your Koekoo is an infalli- j
ble remedy for tho disease from which be has suffered,
and, go far as I can learn, has never failed. If yon
ouly knew the Immense amount of suffering he has
undergone, thou you could conceive the value of and

koo restored me to health.

family in cases of nervnui debility and depression.
From Dr. Lloyd, a Physician of large practice.

J. J. LAWRENCE, M. I».—Dear 8Ir: I cheerfully
endorse your Koskoo as being a most valuable prepa
ration. Upon examination of the formula, 1 find
each ingredient highly extolled by our best and most
progressive clinical investigator?. I have tested its
effects in my own practice, and have no hesitation in
I reoommending it. In my opinion, it is the best com
pound of its class over put before the public—ex
ceeding by far all the various compounds of sarsapa
rllla, Ac, ever invented. It Is a decided Nerve Tonic '
and Invigorator of t"-ie animal forces, aiding diges

money. It is adapted to wells of any depth, and is
sold for TWENTY DOLLARS, all complete and ready
DOTY'B CLOTHES WASHER.
Tho Peculiarities of this Machine : Ist. It Is small;
it occupies but little more room than a commou
wash-tub. 2d. It is easily worked; a feeble woman
may sit down and work it; a little girl can stand
and np«rate tho washer. 3d. It secures all the well-
I known benefits of using suds boiling hot. The hand
need not touch the water, either iv washing or
I wringing, with the Universal Clothes Wringer at
tached; hence it cleanses ordinary linen in a few
I moments, at a single operation, and the worst parts
of collars and wristbands so effectually, that seldom
any, and never but little, rubbing is necessary
There Is no exaggeration In this statement, if tbe
machino is used according to directions.
