"squeezes" of some doorway?, corners,
arches, etc., showing every detail
of ornament and symbolical carving.
From these molds casts have
been made exactly reproducing the
structures. A group of live of these
lies north from the Anthropological
Building. North from this is an interesting
series of homes of vsrioup
American Indians. The palm-thatched
hut of the Arawaks of Guiana; the
long house of the* Iroquois, constructed
of bark, and divided into six spaces
within, one for each of the Six Na>
tiou6; the birch-bark tent of the Pcnobscot
Indians of MaiDe; the ekin/ nvprfid
tenee of the plains tribe; the
dome-shaped framework of pol^s, covered
with rush matting, of the Algonkine;
the plank-covered houses of the
Kwakiool of Vancouver Island, and
the Haidah of Queen Charlotte Islands
with their symbolical paintings and
totem posts; these range along the
edge of the lagoon on whose waters
float various canoes and boats of the
natives. These houses have been built
from proper materials by the Indians
themselves, and most of them are inhabited
by families of Indians, some
of whom carry on their native arts and
industries. Very interesting in this
connection will be the series of dances
of the Kwakiools, for which Doctor
Boas has arranged, which will take
place at intervals through the season.

Deafness Cannot be Cared
by local application-, as they cannot reach the
diseased portion of t he ear. There is only one
wav to cure Deafness, a-id that is by constita

condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have & rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation
can be taken out and this tube restored
to its normal condition, hearing will be
destroyed forever; nine cases out ten are

A DISCiri-E IN A Til.AZE.
I know that the cruel Nero wrapped mac
a Christian in agarmtnt of pitch and the
set him on fire. But I fell in lately with
disciple in a blaze. Sure enough he was a
on fire! There was little or no smoke. ]
was loo hot for that. I looked about fc
some Nero who had done this, but 1 did n<
It was a very sad sight. I do not kno1
how long the lire had been burning, when
saw him; hut 1 was afraid it had been son
time, or else it had burned with great flerei
ness, for there was never more decisive an
painful marks of fire on a human being. H
had been very handsomely dressed, up 1
the time ho took lire. But when I sa
him, the beautiful robe of charity Wfl
burned to a cinder. It had teen tli
"bend of perfectness.'1 bnt was all i
ashes when I saw it. A very valuable girdl
called truth, was shockingly scorched. An
you con judged the severity of the heat, whe
F affirm that a breast-plate of righteousnesi
which he had worn, was melted down, and hn
totally disappeared. He had before been "sho
witt the preparation of the Gospel of peace,
and capital shoes they are, whioh are made<
that article; but these were all crisped by tl:
fire. You would not suppose that anythin
like peace had ever had anything to do wit
them. And I could not but "notice too that tl
shield of faith I had often seen him have, wf
pretty much reduced to a nonentity. It in:
been given "to quench the fiery darts of tl
wicked," which made it more painful to see
perish in the flames, and the "helmetof sal
vation"' had grown brittle in the heat, ar
was shivered; and the -'sword of the Spirit
sba.-edjthe same fate. In short, there wi
nothing left of that comely array, in whicl
as "a strong man armed,'' he was wont 1
move in the various scenes of the coinmunit
The fire had madesueh havoc, that there wi
scarc ely aoy appearance of a man about hin
certainly very little likeness to a Christis
man. 1 did think, on close inspection, thi
there was some faint outlines of such a lik
ness. I did not quite like to gh
up that there were none.
The actiye use of an engine famous for pu
ting out fires of this kind called the "live
oracles" soon subdued the flames. The di
cipie had not suffered much up to this poin
for the heat had very much blunted his sei
sibilities; but as he now began to look abo>
him. and especially upon himself, and begf
to see in what a blaze he had been and wh
little there was left of hisgoodly apparel,th<
did sensibility return, and it was clear thi
,vr +Vu? tinnit ami most tender nerves '
his moral nature had felt the violence of tl
fire; and he wept bitterly.
Inquiring about the matter, I learned th
he had aforetime carried a large quantity
explosive powder about him called Passio
but he had not obeyed the great Captain's o
der to pitch the whole of it overboard, ai
there was enough for a stray spark to fi
upon and do mischief. Such a spark can
that way. hence the blaze above descrilted.
I could not but think of the contract th
disciple in a blaze made with some others
bad read of. The Apostle Paul took fire whi
on a journevto Damascus, and when net
that city. The people tried to put the 11
out. The Scribes ran with their buckets, ar
the Pharisees turned out with all their e
gines: the Romans and the Greeks did tht
best to put out the love and zeal that was co
sumitg him. And Satan himself took tl
lead of the whole, and most skillfully ai
fiercely eat every species of agency at wor
but the blazing Apostle totbeiriuflniteshac
and discomfort kept on blazing.
And I was deeply interested to learn th
Faiii's apparel .instead of being scorched or d
stroycd by the blaze, as in the case of the di
ciple above, only become the more come
and beautiful. I have heard of garment
made of the fibres of a stone called asbestc
which are cleansed by Are. Paul's must ha
been like those. And it was noticed that tl

was on fire show himself, not a heap
blackened ruins, but a beautiful temple, eoi
pact by that which every joint supplietb. tl
wonder and joy of all the saints. The fii
men of those days thought they should p
out the fire by killing him: but his sun we
dcwn in a blaze of glory, and shines sti
and will forever, as the brightness of t!
Satan, as we have seen, tried to put o
Faul when he got on lire. He had no obje
tion to a man's being in a blaze, provided i
may determine the kind of fire. Paul's fl
did not suit him. So he hastened to put hi
out. The disciple's Are noticed above suit
hiro, and he did his best to increase the fn
and the fierceness of the blaze. So that Sat)
puts out fire or puts it up to greater intensi
according to its character. He would exti

the universe, if he could. But as to the flr

INTERNATIONAL LESSON FOR
y OCTOBER 8.
U Lesson Text: "Redemption in
It Christ." Romans iii., 19-26
? Golden Text: Romans
ie 19. "Now we know wlmt things soever tbo
j. law aaith, it saith to them who are under the
,1 law ; that every mouth may be stopped, and
[u all the world may become guilty before
:0 God." He has been proving both Jews and
vv Gentiles all under sin, and that there is none
lS righteous (verses 9, 10). But what about the
ie law that is holy and just and good (chapter
n vii., 12), and those who conscientiously try
P to keep it like Paul himself, who said that
(j as touching the righteousness of the law ht
,D considered himself blameless (Phil, ill,, C).
K This verse in our lesson says the law is to
stop man's mouth and prove every one
<] guilty, for until we are ready to plead guilty
? before God there is no hope of our redemption.
In Math, v., 28, Je9U3 teaches that u
10 sinful look breaks the seventh commandlf?
ment, and in I John iii.. 15, we learn that
h hatred breaks the sixth, while in Jas. ii., 10,
we find that ''whosoever shall" keep the
jg whole law and yet offend in one point is
,(1 guilty of all.
[e 20. "Therefore by the deeds of the law
it there shall no flesh be justified in His sight,
[. for by the law is the knowledge of sin."
[(j David recognized this when he said, "In
? Thy sight shall no man living be justified"
js (Ps. csliii., 2). The law, although so holy,
j cannot give life because of man's sinfulness
to or weakness ot his flesh (Gal. iii., 21 , Rom.
? viii., 3.) Only one Man ever kept the law perfectly.
He came to fulfill the law and the
j. prophets, even to fulfill all righteousness
(Math, v., 17 ; iii,, 15). In Him i6 no sin ; He
at knew no sin ; He did not sin (I'John iii.,'5 ,
II Cor. v., 21: I Peter ii., 22), He could
truthfully say. "I delight to do Thy will, O
my God?yea, Thy law is within my heart"
(Ps. xl., 8). He was and is "the righteously
ness of God." All our efforts to keep the
law, seeking thus to obtain righteousness,
are like Adam and Eve's fig leaf aprons,
which had to be laid aside and give place to
ut the coats ol skins of God's own providing.
in Our righteousnesses are as filthy rags (Isa,
,n 21. "But now the righteousness of God
without the law is manifested, being wit0f
nessed by the law and the prophets." To Him
10 give all the prophets witness that through
His name whosoever believeth in Him shall
at receive remission of sins (Actsx., 43). Paul
0f in all his preaching said none other things
n than those which the prophets and Moses did
' say should come (Acts xx vi., 22). Jesus be1(1
gain at Moses and all the prophets and ex,11
pounded unto them in all the Scriptures
the things concerning Himself (Luke
xxiv., 27). Righteousness is the great
j. essential. God demands it. and He has a
t right to. He says the unrighteous shall not
i inherit the kingdom of God, and that unless
, we have something better than that of the
scribes and pharisees we can in no case enter
d into the kingdom of heaven (I Cor. vi., 9;
Math, v., 20). But what God demands He
also provides?if a wedding garment is necr'
essnry, then wedding garments are provided
* (Math. xxii.. 11, 12). Does He demand
i(, | righteousness;1 Then He provides righteous
ness as Ireely as ?ie proviaea me ciotning ior
' Adam and Eve (Gen. iii., 21).
22. "Even the righteousness of God, which
. is by faith of Jesus Christ, unto all, and upon
? all them that believ/j." God hath made Him
: J to be sin for us who knew no sin, that we
;j" might be made the righteousness of God in
! y Him. He is made unto us righteousness (II
Cor. v.,21; I Cor. i., 80). By Him all that
f' believe are justified from all things from
^ which we could not be justified by the lawof
, Moses (Acts xiii., 39). Therefore the soul
that truly receives Him can say, "I will
a<? greatly rejoice in Ac Lord, my soul shall be
joyful in my God, for He haih clotned me with
n* I i he garments of salvation. He hath covered
me with the robe of righteousness" (I?u Ixi.,
** 10). But how man}' are going about to esUJ
taolish their own righteousness, either
wholly ignorant ot or utterly despising the
. ' glorious righteousness provided lor them in
lie Ohri9t Jesus, who isthe end of the law for
righteousness to every one that believeth
ut (Rom. x., 3,4).
23. "For there is no difference, for all
k* have sinned and come short of the glory of
rtl God." In Adam all die (I Cor. xv.. 22).
n' There is not a just man upon earth that
ec| doetn good and sinnetb not (Ecel. vii., 20),
ie' or as in verse 10 ot this chapter: "There is
1D none righteous. No, not one." Such is the
description of all men by nature, and while
? , all are not equally great sinuers all are. with*D
out exception, sinners. Since Adam was
driven out of para-lise till have been born outside
the garden ; tbere is no difference. When
'** Noah was shut in the ark, all the rest except
those with him were shut out and perished ;
0 there was no difference.
Pr 24. "Being justified ireely by His grace,
'} througu the redemption tnat is in Christ
-e" Jesus." All redemption is in Christ: out of
Ik Him and apart Irotu Him tbere is none. It is
ei tne blood tnat maUetn an atonement lor the
**: soul (Lev. xvii.. 11 , ana none but His blood

?" 25. "Whom Cod hath set forth to be a

? declare His righteousness for the remission
ol of sins that are past, through the forbearance
ot God." The word here translated
ae ' propitiation" is found only elsewhere in
ip Heb. is., 5, where it is translated "mercy
w, seat." In each of these verses in the li. V. it
be is in the margin propitiatory." The mer^y

Air Castic for the Antwerp Exhibition
Sinoe the invention of the Eiffel
Tower and Chicago's great Ferris
Wheel, every man manufacturing a
World's Fair deems it necessary to endow
it with some sky-piercing structnre
transcending and eclipsing any
previous effort. The wonder herewith
depicted is the result of the profound
study of Belgian engineers, and is destined
to adorn the Antwerp Exhibition.
AIR CASTLE FOR TFC ANTWERP EXHIBITION.
Tobiensky, the engineer, has imagined
u gigantic captivo balloon, composed
of two hemispheres and three
cylindrical compartments of triple
China silk. Its volume will be 74,079
jubic metres and its dimensions 9311
square metres. The weight, including
the cf.stle in the air and its accessories,
with that of 150persons, will De3?>,U2U
kilogrammes, or about sixteen tons.
The balloon will be anchored by i'our
great vertical cables.
Two balloon elevators, capable of
carrying ten to fifteen persons, conncct
the castlc with the ground. This
elevated platform and-edifice is to be
built of steel and bamboo tubing, covered
with China silk and sheet iron.
According to the strength of the wind,
it can rise to a height of from 600 to
1500 feet. The platform is ninety feet
long, with a surface of U00 sqnure feet.
It can be lowered to the gronnd in
Thousands of electric lights will
gayly scintillate from the balloon, as
it hovers in the clouds by night, and
by day hundreds of mile6 of the flat
Belgian country will be visible. An
Antwerp newspaper expresses a hope
that other air castles may thus finally
reach a point where they leave the
world of fancy to enter that of accomplished
The Latest in Sleeves.
The latest in sleeves are those which
illuminate and vivify a fin de siecle
gown of my recent acquaintance. Here
the skirt sacrifices that perfect plainness
which i6 now a distinction for the
doubtful compensation of three rows
of embroidered trimming. The mystic
three rows appear agaiu on the bust
and the belt and on the collar are
wider strips of the same design. But
the sleeves with their pinked flounces
are the head and front of oflending.
In their shadow?may it soon be lees?
one reads portents of the future.
Jz is an autumn of flounce, furbelow,
frill, flutter, frou-frou. The dresa
of fifty-two flounces, whose fame I was
first to trumpet forth, is, perhaps, an
extreme. The dress of six or twentyone's
sister will wear according as her
patience and her purse hold out. Yet
it will be a forgiving fashion, with
scope for variety. The plaiu skirt will
light for its life and smaller sleeves
will almost certainly win their skirmish
for recognition unnoticed in the
crush of mightier matters.?Chicago
The Amiience Was Saved.
During the performance of a play
to ii crowded theatre at Bielln, Italy,
one of the players behind the scenes
thought he saw tiny threads of smoke
curling up from the floor of the stage.
He called the stage manager's attention
to it. who, on investigation,
found that under the stage the placo
was on iire. The manager kept hie
self-control and returned to the stage,
where one of the chief actors was
about to appear. The manager
wln'snered the situation to the actor,

went on the boards immediately and
pretended to reel and then fell. The
audience rose in .sympathy, and the
stage manager, rushing forward hurriedly,
said that owing to the serious
illness of the singer, the performance
would have to elose that night. The
doors were promptly thrown open,
aud the audience was hurried out.
Just as the last of the audience was
leaving the flames began to burst
through the stage, and, looking back,
the people saw the real cause of theii
dismissal. The theatre was destroyed,

Highest of ali in Leavening Powe
? Alaska Fish.
> In this modern day of Government
b schools, ready-made clothing, and
1 two-dollare-a-day wages, almost the
3 only picturesqueness left to native life
is during the salmon runs. Families
and tribes betake themselves to their
hereditary fishing grounds to catch
r and dry their salmon for winter use,
j and isolated summer camps break the
. forested shore-line with fine effect.
t A row of black canoes on the bench, a
k cluster of bark or matted tent?, with
} frames of drying salmon overhanging
j the camp-fires, are set between some
( clear still green water foreground and
I an abrupt screen of greenest menzie
> or merton spruces. The racks offish
give touches of high color to the I
I scene, as the further north they are j
caught the redder the Pacific salmon i
are: and in Lvnn Canal some of these I
camps look as if decorated with red
j bunting. All is salmon that comes to
the Tingit, and he makes no distinc'
tion between Icing, red, silver, lmmpc
back, or dog salmon, rather preferring,
on the whole, the coarsc, rank flesh
i of ths last, Avhich no white man wants;
hence he rages at the cannery's waste
' and the destruction of his chief food
supply. Since the corrupting touch
. of trade lias even reached their salmon
streams, the natives now make per[
manent summer villages beside the
, canneries. The men work for the
company, and the women and children
i do a little indejjendent fishing, but
. more regularly follow the cannery
scows and fill their canoes with rejected
salmon, ati cannors use only
. about a third of all fish seized. Thus,
3 in midsummer, Alaska villages are as
j empty of their first families as any
j Eastern city, and the tourists sec
closed houses, aud not a third of the
regular inhabitants. Census enumerators
work zealously, but vainly, in
attempting^ count the natives when
1 they are scattered in remotest nooks
3 all over the archipelago, half of them
paddling their canoes from one place
to another, and as likely to be counted
[ twice as not at all during the summer.
The whito man's fisheries are more
prosaic, less fragrant, and never
' picturesque in themselves. One finds
the canneries in the furthest nooks
| and niches of the archipelago, each
with a finer landscape setting than the
5 last. There ifi always a mountain
s background and a clear lirawling
stream coming from the dense forest.

being worked in New Jersey. The
whole coast line lias been long sinking,
and the process is still going on.
A curious industry is carried on in the
southern part of the State?the mining
for cedar. Some of these noble trees
exhumed from their swampy burial
exceed three feet in diameter, with the
timber perfectly sound. Tho "lay"
of these uprooted trees indicates the
devastation, probably, of extraordinary
cyclones, occurring at immense
intervals of time, thus leveling one
forest upon another that had bees
thrown down long before. The cedara . .
growing there to-day send their roota
among their long-buried ancestors
The tings upon tho exhumed trcca;
show a growth of 1590, or possibly
2000 years, and tho existence of at
least two buried forests below the
present growth is indisputable.?
