The buffetings of this sorrow smi^
ten ai d sin beset world are hard toi"
bear. Oftentimes we teel as if we j ?
should pink in a sea of Troubles- j 1
yea, sometimes we feel that we have j ?
suck, and that we can say with the j1
Psalmist: ' All thy waves and thy ?v
billows ave gone over me." But it is j ?
delight ul to think that "out of the
depths" we CMI cry unto the Lord, j
and that he will hear our prayer.
It is delightful, too, to be assured i
that, though Tie may atllict us. He r
will never forsake us, and that there j t
ts a good time coming, when we shall
rest from our labors,, when al) tears j
?ha? be wiped from our eyes, and
when, having experienced our last
pang, and bid adieu to sorrow, we
?hall sit down in the paradise of God.
Ihe hope of heaven is our stay.
What more do we need? What more
ossibleV Life isf?BMiw^LL?wi!l
bases we^re ushered into the '
Iras of inconceivable and never- 1
ending joy. We scarcely know (
whether our tears are tears of joy or
sorrow-perhaps they are both- j .
when we sing,
Jerusalem, my glorious hom?,
Name ever dear to me,
When shall my labors have an '.nd,
In joy p.nd peace and thee?
Theie is a rapture even in the an
ticipation. The very hope oi it
strengthens ns for our burden here,
and fortifies ns against temptation.
Who can sin when he realizes that
sin blocks his way to the pearly
gates? The very conception of the
holy place is elevating and purifying
To meditate upon it prepares us to
ei.t.er it. We often bitterly learn in
this life that the anticipation of
pleasure exceeds the reality. Bot
we are happy to know that our most
glorious anticipations of heaven are j
meagre and vpaid, compared with j
heaven itself. The home of the an
gels! The dwelling place of God'.
A world of rest and peace, and joy ]
and love! A world where all is pure, i
and where all is holy! A world
where we shall have free and eternal
access to all that God has laid up
for them, for whom the blood of the |
eveilasting covenant was shed! A :
world where infinite goodness has j
poured out all its treasures! But we j
can neither express nor conceive j
what lies beyond tho river. The j
reality overspreads ail human ca
pacity. We are HO overwhelmed I
with the glory that we see nene of it. j
We use the words which represent ?
t: ough they do not express 'he bless- j
euuess of the eternal world, and we j
sometimes imagine that the glorious i
; ideals have been actually present, to
j our minds. But these things have j
. never entered the heart, ot man. We 1
'are like one bom and reared in a j
j dungeon, where in dim twilight, he '
1 never saw enrth, no? sky, nor tree, ?
j nor le;*.f, nor human face, and who,
; ou seeing a picture of the sun, ima |
aines that he has seen the sun itself. ;
j But his notions of the splendor ot !
i that glorious oro would be correct :
! aud vivid, and abundantly up to the '
i original, compared to the vague and i
j wretched conceptions that we have
of the glories of heaveu. Language, '
! even when inspired, presents a ruder
picture than Egyptian hieroglyph, j
1 The joys ol the spirit world are all
untranslatable into the dialect of j
mortals. But even the vague sym- \
bois used by the spirit of God to
represent these upper glories, used '
because they aie adapted lo our ca- j
pacifies, lading as they do to convey j
I to our minds that which they are in- ?
capable of containing, are awe in- .
. spiring and sublime.
The Seer on Patmos beheld thb J
j city of God, and he testifies that each j
I massive gate was one resplendent j
! pearl; that the very street of the city
was pure gold as it were transparent
glass. And, says he, "I saw no tem.
pie therein, for the Lord God Al
mighty and the Lamb are the ten
of ir. And the city had no nee
the sun, neither of the moon,to B1
in it, and the Lamb ?9 the li
thereof."-Rev. xxi, 22 23. It i
if he had said, "As eparke from
flint cannot be seen in sunlight
the sim itself, if blazing iu hea\
would fade and ceape to be vie:
amid the superior glories of Gc
own abode. The rapt seer awak
wonder, if he does not convey
conception, when he tells us tl
the most splendid object our e,
ever beheld pales and dwindle*
nothing in the light of that up]
world. Thus, too, he impresses
with an awful sense of its holin?
"I saw no temple there." The te
pie-the most sacred and holy thi
known to men-finds no place
heaven. There is no room there a
no need then for what we call sacr
and holy. AU our conceptions a
superceded by this, that "the Lo
God Almighty and the Lamb are t
temple of it."
And is it possible that this ie in r
jerve for us? How patiently Bhou
K'e wait lor it. Row short the tin

(ottou and Egypt.
[-V. O Democrat.)
The Egyptian question and its di
ect, as well as indirect bearing or
he great staple continues to attract
0n8iderable attention in cotton cir
les, aud the general impression seeim
o be that the outlook is indefinite
Lpprehension also still exists that
otwithstanding the precautions tak
n in regard to the Suez Canal, its
avigation might yet be interrup ed
efore the present troubles Rre ter
minated, which would bafiuite a se
!rade, aif&terjo East ^totTat of Eng
and, which country received 5,414,
)50 tons in 1881.
The total shipments of cotton frort
India January 1, have been 1,G36,(XX
sales, against 073,000 for the same
,ime in 1881. The total Bbiptnenti
rom India in 1881 were 1.310.00C
jales, and the year before 1,22G,00C
mles. From these few figures dan
be estimated how disastrous to Eng?
iish commerce it would be if the old,
ong and circuitous route around the
^ape of Good Hope bad to be resum
ed. As far as regards the shipments
from Egypt, they amounted to over
107,000 bales, equal to 600,0(30 baies
Df our cotton, for the season ending
September 1, 1880-81, and 404,000
for 1870-80. September 1, ISSI, to
July 22, this year, they amounted to
422.121 bales against 399,574 for tbe
name time last year. Consequently
the situation really resolves itself into
the following position : First the stat
us excites little apparent apprehen
sior ; second, the tesults of a gen
eral war, it is believed vrould cause a
material depression of cotton ; third
ly, the interruption of Egyptian ship
ments of cotton may yet create en
hancement of values, while disaster
to the Sue?. Canal might drive up
cotton even beyond the most sanguine
expectations. Therefore, taking tho
position altogether, the future outlook
for American cotton seems favorable
with one exception, a general Euro
pean war, which though fipparently
hardly probable, is however, possible,
owing to the jealousies between the
powers in regard to Egypt ; conse
quently what is called European di
sent may in case of emergency be
The time for gathering the Egyp
tian cotton crop is a little earlier than
oura, hence it would only be the new
crop that may be materially affected
by the war, as the bulk of the old
crop has already been shipped.
Cotton is cultivated in Egypt in
two different ways, one called "Mis
gain" and the other " Bali." In the
ii ret case irrigation begins as soon ne
the seed is in the ground, by steam
pumps and other means, and is con
tinued in rf gular interva's for some
time every fourth day, later on every
tenth or twelfth day. The field thus
worked produces generally an aver
age crop ol four to five cantars of cot
ton per acre-a cantar bei?g 98
pounds, fields bordering on canals,
which dry up during the low Nile, or
those belonging to the smaller plant
ers, who possess no means of artifi
cial irrigation, are planted Bali; they
are eolely irrigated by the Nile, and
consequently the result of the crop
is dependent on an early supply of
water from the Nile.
English doctors say that plants in
sleeping rooms are unhealthy. French
doctors say they produce sweet slum
bers. American doctors don't say
anything about it, but charge it in

The continuance of the public bur
denn is to be laid at the door of th
Radical party. The North Carolin)
Radicals in Convention assembled
took high ground for the retention o
the revenue system and the presem
high protective tariff. In the Con
gress the Radicals had a goo l work'
ing majority, and any failure to re
ince the onerous r.nd very high taxes
is to be chared home upon them.
.Says the Washington J'osl :
" We have been accustomed to hear
frfquent and loud boasts of the eu
perb capacity of the Republican par
ty for legislative work. In this re
jpect that party bas been in the habit
if challenging comparison with the
Democracy. Rut how does the jecord
itaud in this matterot tax reduction?
Thi Forty-sixth Congress, with a very
unall Democratic margin in the
louse, a majority that was Demo
:ratic rather by allegation than oth
?rwi.se, would have removed the
vorst evils of the tariff and given
he people substantial relief, but for
he coalition of a few Democratic
uembeis with the entire Republican
ide of the House.
" The Forty-seventh Congress found

Bide^^g^?g promptly to work^ou a
vicious, unequal, oppressive and ex
cessive tariff. But. the domiuant and
responsible party would do no such
thing. It broke its pledges to the
people in order to keep faith with the
monopolists who had bolstered np the
party in 1880."
The public speakera should nut fail
to arraign the Republican party for
their crime ol omission, and for their
legislation to favor the monopolists
and money gods of the North.
Figures are instructive. They give
us something tangible to build on.
Let us glance at the Federal taxa
tion. For the fiscal year ending June
30, 1880, the total taxes were ??0,
000,000. For the year ending June
30,1882, they had grown to $40*?,
OOOilOO. Here is a clean growth in
two years of $70,000,000-a sum al
most or quite equal to the total ex
penses of the Government for one
year under James Buchanan. The
payments on account of interest and
premium on the public debt in 1880
were ijS'jS.OOO,000; in 1881, $8:.'. ,000,

j It is true that the party linea wete

[ the leading measures the parties were
generally found pretty solid on either
aide, each trying to make political
capital out ot the blunders of the
others. The Chinese bill, the au rt
polygamy bill, the river and harbor
biil, which passed, and the revenue
tax reduction bili, which failed, all
showed more or less political figuring
at the bottom, while the contested
election cases in the House became

Presiden! James H. Carlisle.
Prof. James li. Carlisle, LL. D.,
preHid-j'"-. of Wofibrd College, is an
alumnus oi he South Carolina Col
lege, having graduated in the claes
til 164-1. He immediately took charge
of the Columbia Male Academy, in
which he taught for eight years. At
the organ v.-it ion of VVofford College
in 18-34 he was elected to the chair
}f mathematics. In 187.3 he was
:hosen president of that institution.
Dr. Carlisle has been more than once
aade president of the State Sundny
3chool Convention and cf the State
Teachers' Association. His modesty
?* excessive, but an appreciative
Church insists upon his taking posi
ton and giving her the benefit of
yank ol tue laymen ot j
?Jethodist Church. He
hal delegate from the last Gener-?
Conference of the M. E. Church,
South, to the General Conference ol
th M. K Church, which met iu Cin
cinuati in May, 1880. He was t
delegate to the late Ecucr.jnical C.;n
terence, but could not attend. As a
thoughtful writer (although he writes
but little) and as a powerful speaker,
he has but few equals anywhere.
Prohibition in Iowa.
It is evident that the people of
Iowa have, by a large majority rati
fied the amendment to the State Con
stitution declaring that "no person
shall manufacture for sale, or sell, or
keep for sale as a beverage any in
toxicating liquors whatever, includ
ing ale, wine and beer." This is a
sufficiently comprehensive act of pro
hibition, and will confine any manu
facture or Bale of alcoholic products
in Iowa to thode used in medicinen,
or the srt-i, or for the consumption ol
the maker. The private consumers
ot beverages containing any propor
tion ol alcohol will be compelled to
seek their supplies outside of the
State. The rural vote, to which the
amendment owes its adoption, is
? mainly that of the abstinent decend
j ants ot the New Englanders, and has
i probably been much iuiluenced by
the close connection between tax

"A Jew warm day>!" How eagerly

and wood piles that usually disap*
peared during the warm spell, in

built up again. Planting and shiv
ering were done together, and the
farmers who worked ont their taxes
on the country roads, wore overcoats
and mitte?s. In a town in Vermont
a f:ook of sheep belonging to a far?
mer, had been sent, as usual, to their
pasture; June l?th a heavy snow
fell, the cold was intense, and the
owner started away at noon-to look
out for his sheep. "Better start the
neighbors after me soon, wife," he
.saixLjn jest before leaving," "being
the middle oT'?t?ne I-HWY get lost in
the snow." Night came, the storm
increased, and he did not rethTft.
The next morning the family sent out
for help and started in search. One
after another of the neighbors turn*
ed oat to look for the missing mau.
The snow had covered up all the
tracks, and not until the thi.d day
did they find him. He was on the
side ol ? bill, with both feet frozen,
unable to move. A farmer, who had
a large field of corn at Tewkebtuy,
near Howell, built large fires around
it at night to ward oft* the frost.
Many an evening he and bis men
took turns watching them. He was
rewarded with the only crop of corn
?a the neighborhood. Fears that the
sun was cooling off abounded, and all
picuics were strictly prohibited.

How lt Pays to Take a Paper*
The testimony of Bill Afp is:
Some papers are not much account
as to appearances; but I never took
one that didn't pay me, in some way,
more than I paid for it. One time
an old friend started a little paper
away down in South-western Georgia,
and sent ii to me, and I subscribed
just to encourage him; and so after a
while it published a notice that an
administrator had an order to sell
several lota ol land at public outcry,
and one of the lots was in my county.
So I inquired about the lot, and
wrotn my friend to attend the sale,
and run it to fifty dollars. He did
so and bid olT the lot for me at thirty
dollar?, and I sold it in a month to
the man it joined for one hundred,
and so 1 made sixty-eight dollars
clear by taking that paper. Why,
father told [me chat^when he was a
young man he saw a notice iu a
paper that a school teacher was
wanted away off in a distant comry,
and he went there and got the ?it
