Morning, nloon Ald night be kind, and
the ellects of it will he written in the
langtage of your face. That is the
gospel of phybiognlomly.
A Bayonne merchant was in the
soth of Eitrope for his health, and
sitting on the terrace one morning in
his iivalidiism ie saw a rider fiong
from a horse into the river, and with
out thinking of his own weakness the
inerchant lung off his invalid's gown,
leped into the strean and swain to
the drowning tua), and clutching him
as he was aboutt to go (own the last
tiie bore him m1i safety to the bank,
when glincing into the face of the res
cIed mian he cried: '"My God! I have
saved my own son1!"
All kindness comes back to us in one
way or another; if not in one way,then
in your own face. Kindness! Show
it to others, for the time may come
when yot will need it yoir3elf. Peo
plo laughed at the lion because
he spared the imonso that ran over
him, when by one motion of his paw
the monster could have erusled the in
significant disturber. But it was well
that the lion had mercy o1 the mouse,
for one day the hon was caught in a
trap and roared fearfully because he
was held fast by ropes. Then the
nouhe gnaeti off the ropes and let the
lion go free. You may consider your
self a lion, but you cannot alford to
deise a mlouIse.
lWhen Abraham Lincoln pardoned a
yoinir soldier at th? request of his
mother, the mother went down the
st aits of the W hite House saying:
"They have lied about the president's
being homnely. Ie is the handsomest
man I ever saw." All over that presi
dent's rtgaed face was written the
kindness which he so well illlastrated
whetn the satid, "Some1 of our generals

K~lindness! It malikes the face shine
while iit lasts, and after death it puts
a summlner' suntset between the still'lips
and11 the smtoothled hair, that makes me
Say somneting at obsequies, "She seems

itt here cotmes another chIsel, and
itsi name1 1 is ypiocri.iy. Christ, with
one terrilic i',roke ini his sermoni On the
miotunt, dlescribed't this character, "'When

be' signs of trouble on that face, but
trou~ble satnctliled. There may be scars
oi battle on that face, but they will bb
scars o ?a camipailgn won.
"Now," says suomfe one, "1 knoW very
good people who haiveno 0such religion
Onl thleir faces." My friend, thle reason
probably Is that they werenIot convert
ml until late Inl life. Worldliness and
sill hand been at work withl their chisels
in that face f or 80 or 40 years, and1
Grace, thle divine sculptress, has been
busy with tier chise01 only five or ten
years. Do not be surprise that Phidias
anid GIreenough, with their fine chisels,
cannl~ot im a short whiile remove all tile
m Iarks of' the stone mason's crowbar,
- llc il been busy there for a long
would have sympathetic face hopeful
face, courageous face, cheerful Kade;
kind-face, at the earliest possible mo
ment, by the grace of God, have plant.
ed in yoursoul sympathy and hope and
courage and good cheer and kinduess.
No man over indtilged a gracious
feeling, or was moved by a righteous
indignation, or was stirred by a bonev- f
olent impulse, but its effect was more
or less indicated in the countenance. 0
while David noticed the physlognomic e
effect of a bad disposition when he t
said, "A wicked man hardeneth his
face," and Jeremiah must have noticed
it when he said of the cruel, "They
have made their faces harder than a
rock." Oh, the power of the human a
face! I warrant that you have
known faces so magnetic and impress
ive that though they -yanished long o
ago they still hold you with a
holy spell. How long since your child o
went? "Well," you say, "Ii she had t
lived, she would have been 10 years old 1
now or 20 or 30." But does not that t
infant face still have tender supremacy
over you entire nature? During many a
an eventide does it not look at you? 0
In your dream do you not see it? What
a sanctifying, hallowing inauence it
has been in your life! You can say in
the words of the poet,"Better to have
loved and lost than never to have loved
at all."
Or it may have been a sister's face. t
Perhaps she was the invalid of the 8
family. Perhaps she never went out y
except on every clear days, and then
she had to be carried down the stairs
to the piazza, or for a short ride, but
s-he was so patient and cheerful under
it all. As that face looks at you through
the years with what an elevated teid
heavenly emotion you are filled!
Or was it a father's face? The
storms of life had somewhat roughened
it. A good deal of the brightness of the
eye had been quenched and the earlwas 8
turned with the hand behind it in order
to hear at all. But you remember that
face so vividly that if you were an
artist you could put it on canyas, an'l
it would mean to you more than any
face that Rembrandt ever sketched.
That face, through long ago viled from
human sight, is as plain in yout mem
ory as though you this moment saw it
moving gently forward and backward
in the rocking chair by the stove in
the old farmhouse.
Or was it your mother's face? A
good mothers face is never homely to
her boys and girls. 10 is a Maddonna
in the picture gallery 6f the memory. C
What a sympathetic face it was! Did
you ever have a joy, and that face did
not respond to it? Did you ever have
a grief, and no tears trickled down that
maternal cheek ? Did you ever do a
bad tning, and a shadov did not cross
it? Oh, it Was a sweet face! The
spectacles, with large, round glasses
through which she looked at you, how
sacredlythey have been kept in bureau
or closet! Your mother's your mother's
smile, your mother's tears! What an,
overpowering memory! Through you
have comne on to midlife or old age, low
you would like just once more to bury
your face in her lap and have a good
cry!
Ilut I can tell you of a more sympa
thetic, and more tender, and more lov
ing face than any of the faces. I have
mentioned. "No, you cannot," says
some one. I can, and I will. It is the
face of Jesus Christ as he was on earth
and is now in heaven. When preparing
my life of Christ, entitled "From Man
ger to Throne," I ransacked the art
galleries and portfolios of the world to
lind a picture of our Saviour's face that
might be most expressive, and 1 saw
it as Francesco Francia painted it in
the sixteenth century, and as the em
er aid mntaglio of the sixth ca3nt'ury pres.
ented it, and as a fresco in the cat
acombs near Rome preserved it, and as
Leonardlo da Vinci showed it in "The
Last Supper," and I looked in the
Louver, and the Lexembourg, and the
Vatican, and thme Dresden, anid the
Berlin and Neapolitan and London
galleries for the most inspiring face of
Christ, and many of the presentations
were wonderful for pathos and majesty
and jpower and execution; but, al
though I selected that by Ary Scheffer
as in some respeci te most e xpressive
1 felt as we all fe jl, that our Christ
has niever yet been presented either in
sculpture or paintings and that we wvill
have to wait until we rise to the upper
palace, where we shall see him as he is.
WVhat a gentle face it must have been
to induce the babes to struggle out of
their mothers' arms into his arms
What an expressive face it must have
been w~hen one reproving look of it
thre-w stalwart P.eter into a it to tears!
WVhat a pleading l ace it must have been
to lead the psalmits in prayer to say of
it, "1Look up~on.Lhe face of thine anoint
edl!" What a sympathetic face it must
have been to encourage lIme sick wo
man who wast beyond any help from the
doctors to touch the hem of his gar.
imnt!
WVhat a suffering face it must have
been wh'len suspended on the perpen
dlicuilar and horizontal .pleces of the
wood of martyrdom, and his an
tagonists slapped the pallid cheek
wvith their rough hands and befouled
it with the saliva of their blasphemous
lips! WVhat a tremendous face It mu.'
have beeni to lead St John to describu
it in the coiming judgement as scatter
ing the universe whein he says, "From
whose face the earth and the heav fled
away."
O) ChrIst! Once the Naza~rene, but
now the celestil: Once of cr-oss, nowv
of thmone! Once crowned with stingin g
bramble, but ntow coronetedwith the
jewels of ransomed empires! Turnu on
us thy pardoning face and forgive us;
thy symipathetic face and consolo its;
thy suffering face and have thy atone
ment avail i or uts; thy omniposent face
amnd rescue uts.
Oh, what a face! So scarred, so ha
cerared, so reeplondent, so over whelm
ingly gloutrlous that the seraphim put k
wvimg to wving, andl with their conjoined
pinions keep off some of the luster that
is too mightly even for eyes cherubic or
archangelic, and yet this morning 4
turning upon us with a sheathed spledl
or like that with which he appeared,
when he sid to the mothers bashful -
about presenting their children, "Suiffer
them to come," and to the poor waif of
the street,'-Neither do I condlemn thes"
and to the eyes of the bling beggar of
the wayside, "lBe opened."
1 think my brother John, the return
edl foreign missionary, (dy ig summier
before last at Bond Brook, caught a
glimpse of that face of Christ when in
his (lying hour my brother said, "I shall
besatisfied when I a wake in his lieknes.'
And now unto him that loved us and
washed us from our sins in his own'
blood and bath madie um kings and
priests'uto God and his Farther, to
him be glory and dominion forever and

amen!

COLUMBIA, S. Q., March 1.-An ab
uctor of a pretty young girl, after ef
ectURlly dodging the O aicers of the
W for about ten days, was yesterday
*fternoon run down '~ atrdi
ompany With the child whom he had
aken away from home, and is now.be
Ind the bars. The parties came from
'harleston and to 0haarleston they Will
ave to return. It 18 quite a romantic
tory, and it is hard to believe that a I
irl of such tender years coul haecoae
o much infatuated with a gr. wri mane
o homely and unprepossessliug as thei
no in this case, as to willingy Permit
erself to be abducted. t1he is a miss
f only thi teen years, petite and pret
y, well developed and altogether quite
striking looking child. The man, on
be other hand,-is a long way from be
ig good looking. le is red-headed
nd has a red face, and- wears a short
ropped moustache. Ile is about thir
y years of age. Ile hailed originally
rom Lexiugton county, and was once
mployed in the Congaree cotton fac
ory here. The girl is from Charleston
dhere her parents live. When the pair
rere arreeted yesterday afternoon and
aken to the station house, she did not
Dem to mind it much,. perhaps too t
oung to realize what it meant. The
ellow seemed to be much excited,
About ten days ago Chief of Police
tadcliffe, having previously received a
rief telegram, got the following letter
otifying him of the abduction:
Ch arleston, S. C., Feb. 19, 1894.
Ir. L. J. Radcliffe, Chief of Policet
Columbia. 8. U.:
Dear Sir: Please use your best en
eavors to capture the following per
ons, viz: Bon Gregg, John Rambo and
young girl nugned Marian Williams.
.he description of the girl is as follows:
Lbout live feet four inches tall, dark
row eyes, dark hair, very young but
vell eveloped. When she left here
n the evening of the 17th inst., she
vore a black hat., black dress trimmed
vith red velvet, and a blue blazer and
ad a locket ring on one of her fingers.
The charge against the man is abduc
ion. The girl is not yet thirteen years
Id, but looks much older, and was en
iced away by these two men, one of
vhom, Ben Gregg, is a married man.
'hey are all factory hands, and the men
vill very likely try to get work in some
f the factories in your city. They left
ere for Columbia on the 17th at 7:30
m.
We are very anxious to get these
iersone, and trust that you will be able
o assist us in their capture.
Yours respectfully,
J. ED'MORE MARTIN,
Chief of Police.
The man brought the child in here
nI the night mentioned in the letter
nd they spent the night at the 11111
louse, on Gervais street. The next
norning they went on to Newberry
.Ad trieI to get work in the factory
here, and failing in that proceeded to
reenwood trying to get work in the
actory at that place. They failed there
oo, and yesterday afternoon returned
o this city, via the Richmond and
)anville road. Conductor Roche of
he South Carolina Railway happened
o be standing near by when they
topped off the train. Ile recognized
he couple and informed Oflicers Grif
in and Clark of the police force that
hey were the parties wadited. In the
neantime the couple had started off to
vards the river bridge. They were
ioon overhauled and taken into custo
ly. They were forthwith taken to the
itation house, where the mani was
placed in a cell and the girl was kept
.n the ante room.
rho man is Ben Gregg. R ambo has
lot been seen or heard from. Tlhey
old a good many different stories, but
nade no effort to deny their identity.
\.s lirst they said they had been mar
ied while in Newberry. Then they
aid that they were going over to the
tome of an uncle of the muan in Lex
ngton county and intended to get mar
led there. At first the girl denied that
he bad ever been to Ch irleston, but
oon confessed it all. Thue maon denies
mphiatically that ho was ever married.
Lie says that he lived with a certain
wvoman in Charleston for three years,
but he wvas never married to her. The
father of the girl is a fireman employed
at the Edisto phlosphiate works in
Charleston. Both -Gregg and the girl!
had been working in the weaving room
of the Charleston factory. Both deny
that ltumbo had anythinag t3 (do with
the abduction. Gregg says that ta the
afternoon lie left Charleston, INmbo
simply walked a portion of' the way to
the depot with him and that was his
only connection with the affair.
After the arrest last evening, Chief
lRatcliffe telegrap)hed thme otlicials in
Charleston of the capture and Chief
Martin replied:
"Hold Mary Ann Williams aind all of
thme partiesi until our oilicer can come
for themi."

'oom about 8:30 to call on them. lie
eard the woman groaning, and called
or help. As it is right across from the
ty hal, iuspector MoElvy and sev
,ral oflicers were 'soon on the scene.
rhe door was burst open and a loody
ight met their gaze. On the floor lay
Jhe woman with three bullet wounds
n Jer head and neck. McNabb was
yi~it beside her with two shots through
he head that killed him almost instant
y. The woman was taken to the
[Iomeopathic Hospital. She can hard
y recover. McNabb's body was re.
noved to the morgue. There was a tire
& few doors above the hotel at the time
qcNabb did the shooting This caused
nuch excitement in the vicinity, and
he hotel people did not even hear the
ihots fired. McNabb evidently meant
nurder when he went to the room, fop
ie was only there a short time before
ie did the shooting.
Louise Kellogg's right name is Mrs.
[t. E. Rockwell, and she has a husband
lving at Seattle, Washington. Kel
togg was her stage name. Her parents
Live at 13addock, near this city. Unless
ihe regains consciousness, the cause of
%o shooting may never be known.
Louise IKellogg, or Mrs. W. E. Rock
well, the woman's right name, is the
wife of the president of the lialifornia
baseball league. From what could be
learned from young Gillen, after the
ihooting, Miss Kellogg was endeavoring
to break off her relations witn Mclubb.
A. number of letters belonging to Miss
Kellogg showed that she had been
keeping McNabb supplied with money
the past few months. The company
sne was with disbanded some time ago, i
and she came here with the probable in- t
tention of either staying with her pa
rents in Braddock, or getting money t
lo tide her over until she procured
.noter engagement. McNabb met her
here, and as the woman was probably
trying to break off her intimacy with
him, this probably prompted McNabb
to shoot the woman and then himself.

correspondent, today: "I have said all
along that I would not enter the guber

to my decision. There is plenty of good'
material in the reform ranks,:and when
the tight opens there will be plenty of
good candidates to choose frQm. One
thing is very certain, I have no idea of
making the race." Capt. Shell is the
strongest man inthe House from South

upon to become a candidate it would
hetile the problem, so the majority of
