health, and age of the applicant for of

tOTE UD POWER. ,
Love anil power eacb stand alone as
abject yet often appear inseparable
In discovering the weakness of one it
I bnt strengthen the other. They are
wonderful conspirators, sometimes so
mystified that we see through their effects
darkly. The greatest kings, warriors
aud statesmen that ever lived, have been
influenced by both in some degree. Da
vid, notwithstanding bis power to con
-quer and role ia-hi. -great throne, ever
remembered bis early affection for Jona
than. He loved him as bis own soul
When the news of bis death reached the
good king, he cried, "I am distressed for
thee ; thy love was wonderful, surpassing
the love of woman." Solomon says
"Many waters cannot quench love, uei
ther can the floods drown it ; if a man
would give the substance, of bis house
for love, it would be utterly contemned
Did ever one man exercise more love
and power than the Reformer, Martin
Luther ? Alexander and Napoleon were
powerful agencies, as the world terms it,
but they did not attempt to break down
a government without armies. : Luther
alone defied the Roman Council. .'Twas
not for fame that he disobeyed the Pope's
laws, for blacker clouds never whirled
around one, person. lie expected to give
his life a sacrifice to the cause of Christ
So dear was Christ to him that when he
received the summons to appear at Worms
to meet the Papists in all their force and
wiry doctrines,, he said his blood was
what they desired, and he would meet
them rather than submit to the Pope's
creed. When he came near the city, a
friend seut a messenger to him not to
enter the city, fearing his life would be
required. Luther's reply was, .i'Go, tell
your master that though there should be
as many devils at Worms as there are
tiles upon the bouses, I would enter in."
He knew bis writings were found in the
Bible, and could prove it, before all Rome.
Though weak, iu body, there was a power
within that enabled him to withstand the
fiery darts of Satan everywhere.: The
love which be bad for his God, whom he
served, was the fonndation of this bold
ness of spirit. Napoleon, what a com
parison. He bartered love for fame and
the homage of this world. Luther ex
pected his reward in eternity..
We know of the love that some enter
tain for others ; but this is of the earth,
earthy, very often. The love of God j
exceeds anything we can comprehend ;
'tis the sum and substance of all happi
ness here below. When Christ was
questioned by a lawyer of the Pharisees,
relative to the greatest commandment, his
reply was, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy
God with all thy heart, with all thy soul
and with all thy mind." This is the first
and great commandment, and the second
is like unto it, " Thou shalt love thy
neighbor as thyself. On these two com
mandments hang all the law and the
prophets." What can be more definite
than this ? Love is the mainspring of
life ; then comes the power to act aa the
heart desires. If we love God with all
our soul and mind, of course we will en
deavor to obey bis precepts and conquer
self. What greater power can avail as
much. We are told, "He that is slow to
anger is better than the mighty ; and he
that ruleth bis spirit than he that taketh
An Unreported Conversation. -

walks through the Bridgeport cartridge
factory the other day, be pointed to sev
eral working men and inquired of Gov
ernor Jewel, "Are these men what yon
call the common people?" The Governor
replied that they were a fair specimen of
the working classes in this country.
"But do yon mean to say that these get
into official position I" fnrther asked the
imperial scion. "Perhaps not any of
these men," rejoined Governor Jewel;
"but men of their class do ; they are
educated men, most of them that is,
they can all probably read and write,
and most of them take and read the
