Read before the Western Conference
of the Wittemburg Synod of

by request of Conference.
"What has Protestantism to fear from
the Encroachments of Catholicism,
the Encroachments of Catholicism, and What are the duties of Christians
in the Premises?"
Jicceut dcrnonstrsttons, arising
front the re awakened euergies of the
Catholic Cliurcli, proJuccJ by oppo-
ei. ion to tbe Inralihility Dogma, and
the overlhrow ofthe Pope's temporal
power, render thia an important ques
tion ; and one, we trust, of general
Iu coLBitkring Lat we, a J Protest
antp, Lave to fear from the enrtxeb-
nienia of Catholicism and what are
our duties in tbe preuiidrs we are act
listed by no personal aui 111 osi ties and
have no hostile intentions.
Our purpose ia t present the evils
which threaten ue, as indicated by
the tncroachu euis of Koman Ualltol
Kit-ni, wan a view lo prepare i'rotest
a: t to meet iho threatening danger
and avert Hie aire caiamuity. in do-
:i ii; to, we shall deal with the doctrines
aiid principles of Komaniam and not
with members ot the Catholic Church;
for we believe there are Christians
among caiuoiics : uui we main
tain at the same time, that Popery is
an enemy to Irue Christianity. As
memlKis ot churches called Protest
ant, because protesting against tbe er.
rois of Catholicism, it seems almost
utelets to argue that Romanism is
anti-Christian ; and as Zu'ierwi, with
the Augsburg Confession, (which we
have conbidered, and which is itself
a Protest against Catholicism,) as onr
Creed, it seems altogether preposter
ous to argue this question.
But if proof were needed to show
that the Church of Rome is the enemy
of true CbiiHliacity, it may be found
in the liilile.
In the ptophecy of Daniel the Pa
pacy is foretold as the vindictive en
cuiy of the true church. The four
great lieals which Daniel siw, (Dan.
vii: 28,) represent four great pow
ers or kingdoms upou earth.the fourth

The Duke of Alva boasted '.hat in
the short space ot six months he had

practice then, it is in principle now ;
for, can immutability change? Can
infalibility err? lias any Pope of
the last thousand years disapproved
persecution? Has PiuB IX. abro
gated a single law again&t heretics ?
"It is a tenet of their creed," sayt
Charles Butler, "that what their faith
ever has been, such it was from the
beginning, such it is now, and such
ever will be M But why talk about
an inlallible church changing? 'lhe
only reason why the Inquisition does
not exist and the Crusades have been
abandoned, is becanse they have not
the power to carry tbem on, for in
the oath commonly administered to
Bishops occur these words : "Schis
matics aDd rebels to our Lord, the
Pope, -nd his successors, I will, to
tbe utmost of my power, persecute
and destroy." It follows then, that
had they the power they must wage
war against Protestants and destroy
them, or violate their oath. And
every Priest swears to believe and
teach Uomt'a right to torture and
burn heretics, that is, Protestants.
True, public sentiment restrains the
cruel tyrant, but it alters not his
character nor changes his purpose.

Catholicism is the most intolerant of
creeds. It is intoleranci itself." The
treatment of Ilyaclnthe, Dollinger
and others who dared to oppose the
Infallibility Dogma, proves' the cor
rectness of the above statement, that
" Catholicism is inioltrance itself?
A Papal Boll annually 'excomma
nicates and curses, on the part of
God Almighty, the I ather, Son and
Holy Uhost, all heretics, under what
ever name they may be classed.'
Canon All. ot the recent Hcnmen-
ioal Council affirms : "It any think
that Christ, our Lord and King, has
only given to his Church a power to
guide by advice and permission, but
not ordain by laws to compel and force
bi anterior judgments and salutary
inflictions, those who thus separate
themselves, let them be anathema.
Until tbe present year and for tbe
change no thanks to Popery Protes
tant worship was prohibited in Itome,
and to-day where they have the
power lo prevent it, they will not
allow Protestant worship even in a
private house. In view of these facts,
we may be excused for believing the
assertion of our Catholic friends,
that "if ever tAe Latnoucs gain an
immense numerical majority, reliaious
freedom in this country u at an end.
But is there a possibility of this?
Let us see. There was in tbe United
States in 1870, according; to the
Catholic Dictionary and Ordo," a
Catholic population of 5,000,000 ;
numter almost, it not altogether,
equal to tbe number of communicants
tbe various branches of tbe Protes
tant Church in this country.
In 1840, of the entire population,
one-twelfth was Catholic ; now about
one seventh. At their present rate
increase, they will have in 1900 a
population of nearly 17,000,000. And
must be remarked that they only
need the balance of power, and not a
majority, to control the affairs of
overnment. If they increased in
thirty years from one twelfth to one
seventh or the population, how long
ill it take to gain the immense nu
merical majority necessary to end
religious liberty in this country?
Having been hurled from power in
Europe, and encouraged by successful
encroachments in this country, they
have turned their attention to the
United States and are actively en
gaged in propagating their faith, and
laying the foundation for an attack
upon tbe institutions ot the country,
and the overthrow of civil and relig
Great shrewdness is exhibited in
the management of Home's interests.
The whole territory of the United
States is embraced in the field of their
operations. Divided into seven Prov
inces, embracing nny-tbree uiooeses,
and nine Bicarites-Apostolic, each un
der the watchful eye of a liishop,
there is no partot this broad land but
Itome claims for Her own. w nerever
her interests can be subserved, a
preaching Btetion is established, an
academy founded, a school opened.
No place ot importance is neglected;
centres ot influence, such as State
capitals, county towns, and rapidly
growing cities, are all occupied by
Catholic institutions, and from these
centres her influence is exerted oyer
the whole country, and public opinion
everywhere moulded. In the West
strenuous efforts are made to secure
power and control affairs in the inter
ests of Catholicism. A Catholic paper
Boston says: "Catholics should
control the West.'' Accordingly
among the first arrivals in every new
settlement, of any importttnee, is the
inevitable Catholic Priest- In the
South they are no less active. Or
ganized efforts are made to bring the
treedmen over to Popery. t00,000
gold were contributed by the "So
ciety lor propagating the faith," for
one year's missionary work among the
freedmen in our country.
Not only in the West and South,
but in the East, with a lavish outlay
means, churches are built, schools
are founded, hospitals erected, Monas
teries and Nunneries established on a
magnificent scale! Tracts and pamph
lets are gratuitously distributed
and publio lectures given, pretending
prove that the Catholic Church is
the guardian of morals and friend oi
liberty. Nor have these efforts been
abortive as the history ot New York
clearly proves. The design of all
these eflorts is plain ; Romanists are
aiming at power, and tbe power
achieved, Protestantism is destroyed
This "Beast" Btill thinks to change
times and laws especially in this coun
try. In estimating the strength of
the enemy seeking our destruction,
we must remember that Catholics are
unit. 5,000,000 of our citizens,
who owe their first allegiance to
Rome, are drilled to implicit obedi
ence and directed by one will; while
Protestants are divided, and many ot
them, I am sorry to say, are ready to
apologize ior and even defend the
encroachments of this enemy in dis-
. n m . a 1
guise, some ot our most, muuenuai
papers even advocate tne claims ana
support the cause of Catholicism.
Unscrupulous in the use of means,
they necessarily wield a greater in
fluence over the irreligious masses
In the light of tacts such as these,
it any wonder the Catholic World
says : "The question, Do you believe
that this country will ever become
Catholic?' is changed to the question:
'How soon do you think it will oome
pass ? ' " Then adds : u Very soon,
statistics be true, for it appears that
the rate of growth ot the Catholic
religion has been 75 per cent, greater
than the ratio ot increase ot popuia
tion ; while tne rale oi tnefincrease oi
Protestantism has been 11 per cent
less. The Bishop of Cincinnati said
1866: "Effectual plans are in
operation to give us the complete
victory over Protestantism.'' Another
Bishop says: "The time is coming
when the Catholics will have the
ascendency." The Pilot, a Catho
lie paper of Boston, recently
affirmed : "The man is to-day living
who will see a majority ot the people
of the American Continent Roman
Catholics." "Let Protestants hate us
they will,'' says another Catholic
paper, "but tho time will come 5vhen
we will compel them to respect us."
Should that day ever arrive, we may
expect little favor from a Church, all
ot whose Priests, according to the
assertion of one of their Members,
"Swear, we will persecute this cursed
evangelical doctrine as long as we
have a drop of blood in our veins ;
and we will eradicate it, secretly and
publicly, violently and deceitfully, with
words and desds, tas swobd bot ex
cluded." Nor are these mere idle threats and
vain boast in ga.v Already she possesses
the balance of power . and demands
favorable legislation as a condition of
support. Already she control some
ot the largest and most influential cat
ies, including the great metropolis oi
th couutry, N. Y. City. Already she
nas succeeded in ban wrung the Bible
from onr common schools in some dis
tricts, and has secured a division oi
the school funds in others. Grown
bold by past successes, they make still
greater demands : The "Boston Ad
vertiser affirms : "Catholics would
not be satisfied with the public schools.
even if the Protestant Bible and every
vesiige oi religious teaching were
banished from them." The "Catholic
Telegraph" declares : "It will be
glorious day for the Catholics in this
country when our school system shall
be shivered to pieces, until then mod
ern paganism will triumph.' The
Ohio J'reemans Journal speaks
follows : "Let the public school sys

WHAT A DREAM DID.
Fort Wayne, Indiana, is a great
place for remarkable stories. The
Sentinel ot that city, soberly narrates
the following as a fact:
A gentleman of high social position,
living in this county, has a eon engag
ed as a cleik in Omaha. A few weeks
ago the father received a letter
from his son to the effect that he had
been robbed of t5,000 belonging to
Lit employer, while returning from a
collecting trip into the country. The
father was naturally troubled by the
intelligence, and when be retired to
his room for the night he lay awake
some time thinking of the occurence.

calling the particulars of a robbery in
which they had been concerned, while
they counted over the proceeds ot the
same with an exultant air. Learning
the number of their room,he descend

fixed their names in his memory, to

were written, and then awoke. Ue
Immediately wrote a letter to his son
requesting him to call at the

found the names of John B. Wilson
and James Frank inscribed on its
pages under the date ot November,
to "have the parties found, arrested,
and charged with the theft of the $5,

and from s letter received yesterday
we learn that the said John B. Wilson

the hands of Mr. Sherman. That
was not presumptuous in my ambition
in seeking the office my present po
sition will show ; and that I was not
mercenary, it is sufficient to say that
I sought the office for the benefit of
another. In my intercourse with
Mr. Sherman, on the occasion of ask
ing for the place, nothing occurred to
wound my feelings, but on the con
trary all was very pleasant. He told
me he bad presented the name of
another, one who came well recom
mended, and a man with whom he
was well pleased, and there the mat
ter ended, and that Mr. Sherman was
satis fie J with my course was evi
denced by subsequent personal inter
course and corraspendence. The iin
putatioa cast upon me is unmanly on
your wart, and if it in any way orig
mated with Mr. Sherman it shows
that he expects personal service from
all who receive official favors at his
hands ; and as my brother in-law
afterward received tbe appointment
oi uoute Agent in the poatil service,
at 31,400 a year, through his inter
vention, at mv instance, perhaps.
judging from case?, it would not be
far out of the wav to ad"pt the latter
conclusion and give Mr. Sherman
credit for the delicate insinuation.
But, sir, you knowing my antece
dents knowing as you did tfcat I was
nominated and elected as an anti
Sherman man by the concurrence of
of yourself and your co laborer of
the Blade, to what motive shall I
attribute your present course ?
My opposition to Mr. Sherman is
from a greater cause than aay per
sona opposition. It is because of its
foundation his publis course as a
Republican when firmness and fore
sight meant something. He was
wavering and unreliable when the
life of the country hung upen a mere
trifle ; he was opposed to freeing the
negro, but would consent to their
being employed in the military ser
vice only, on the condition of their
being returned to slavery as the prop
erty of the master; and when the
emancipation was a success, in spite of
his lukewarmness, and the war was
ended, be. John bermaa, winked at
my fjoiicy auai p euough su muik
from Mr. Andy Johneon the highest
offices for his FAMILY and relatives,
and he Beeks to retain his place,
judging from the past, more as an
attorney for private interests than as
servant of the people. Sj at least
appears tc me, that I am sustained
in the opinion by the best Republicans
know, and in great numbers,
throughout the land-
New, after the above statements,
come with me to tbe Capital of your
great State, and I will show you
other good reJuons why I did not
support Mr. Sherman for Sanator.
When your legislators came to
Columbus in the discharge of duty to
which they were elejted, who, and
what did tbey find here to assist
them in their choice of United States
Senator? Why, they found an or
gauized lobby, composed ot tho Post
masters of all the principal towns in
the State ; they found Custom-house
officers, Revenue Collectors and As
sessors: National Bank Presidents
(three of whom were from Mr. Sher
man a own town of Maosbeld) ; we
found Northern Pacific Railroad and
land grabbers, and all the hellish
whisky rings from all the country
around ; and last, but not least, by
any means, came Aleck Sands, late
United States Marshal, commonly
known as Archibishop of tbe Lobby,
who is always on hand when doubtful
work is to be accomplished ; and, in
fact, every body was here who had
made money out of the Government
through Mr. Sherman's assistance ; all
were hers to procure the re-election
of Mr. Sherman to the United States
Senate. Now, sir, would it have
been necessary for all these people
to have been here to work ior Mr.
Sherman, if he was the choice of the
people ? No, sir, 1 think not.
Again, sir, was the presence of all
these people and the purpose for
which they were here, calculated to
change the conviclio&s of an original
anti-Sherman ' man ? I should say
not, sir ; and I am inclined to think
that had you been present you would
been reassured in opnositin to
Mr. Sherman, and would in my placs
have gone for any good Republican
save the party and the country
from the triumph of such influences.
Mr. Sherman is not the choice of our
party, and his re turn to the Senate :
fraud neon tee people of the State.
This is my opinion, and I shall abide
by it, and I repeat, that I feel assured
now. stronger than before the vote
was given for which you condemn
me, that my action is approved by my
own district and the great body of
Republicans in and out of the State.
And now, Mr. Kditor, wherein and
what does your great righteousness
Had Mr. Sherman been defeated
you would nave oeen roremost in
shouting glory, and you would have
been first in saying: "We bad that
thing set for the packed caucus ; we
knew it was all packed for Mr. Sher
man,' Ac. I infer this from your
time-serving character, and from
what one of your Kepresentauvcs
told me since his visit, home at the
recess. He told me that he was now
convinced that both of the Republican
papers of Toledo were anti-Sherman,
and I know it will apply to my friend
Nasby. I claim to have some right
to understand him, be having edited
paper in our town. He will under
stand my meaning, when I tell him
that ungratefulness can not be ex
cused on the ground of expediency.
A de'ense of principle for the sake ot
principle is justinaoie; out an im
peachment of motives, when no prin
ciple is involved, is beneath con
tempt ; tor I want all to understand
that no Democrat could have been
elected Senator without the consent
and support of Mr. Sherman's friends.
Now, if you and your Toledo
friends are afraid Mr. Sherman would
go against your harbor improve
ments, if yon do not rejoice over his
election and condemn his opposers,
do yon not give the best evidence in
the world of his unfitness for the trust
you place in him ? I know the Rep
resent! ve from Erie county (an ant-
Sherman District and anti-Sherman
man), gives want of harbor improve
ment as a reason for voting fcr Sher
man, and aa I fully believe, a misrep
resentation of his constituents.
In conclusion. I wish to say that I
see new reasons every day for regret
that our effort to defeat Mr. Sherman
was not a success. Why they were
not, I am unable to say. One thing
I do know, which was that we went
into joint election with six Republi
can members to vote each ior his own
man other than Sherman, which would
have caused a tie. After which Mr.
Sherman never could have been elect
ed Senator, because numbers told me
that after the first joint vote they did
not feel bound, and would not vote
for Mr. Sherman.
Now, sir, I have not anything to
tike back, no apology to make for my
course, no party lash can drive me
against my convictions ot justice to
my psrty, and no hack politician
or office-holder can put a ring in my
nose and say : Come up now to the
feed, or stay out and starve ! I say
starve yet a little while.

PENS AND PEN MAKERS.
The death ot the Birmingham mil
lionaire who made his stupendous
fortune by making pens of Bteel, sets
writers to thinking about that useful
and often abused little implement, the
aource of sorrow to billions of school
boys, and cordially loathed by more
than half of those who are compelled
to use it, the pen.
In old times (any of the times be
fore the sixth century,) the article
most used in writing Hebrew, Chal
dee, Greek, Arabic and latin, was a
reed split at tbe point in the manner
of the quill pen. Thia was the earli
est known implement for writ in 2
ith a fluid on parchment, papyrus, or
any of their equivalents, and it was
the favorite for many hundreds of
years. The orientals still employ it
to some extent. A. personal experi
ence has demonstrated that the reed
pen made of Louisiana cane, though
a passable make shift for war time, is
not so well adapted to the living
Lnglish language as it seems to have
been to the defunct classic tongues.
The ancients, likewise, had their
sty lus of steel and hardened brass,
used on tablets of wax or something
similar. In eastern Asia the pre
dominant writing-tool is a brush of
fine, straight hair, or fur at the end
of a reed, like the brush ot a painter
in water colors. With absorbent pa
per and the peculiar ink of the East,
much fine chirograpby has been pro
duced with the China brush-pen.
which the native scribe prefers to any
of our Western substitutes, mainly
because it has been in use some
thousands of yeare. A brief experi
ence will dercoastrate to the curious
American that the hair pen in his
fingers will only write a slow coarse
hand, and is only convenient to men
oi leisure where paper is cheap.
About A. D. bb, scribes began to
torture the harmless goose by pluck
ing out her choicest pinions, the dis
covery having been made that the
barrel of a quiil could be carved aud
into a better becanse more flexible
pen. For eleven hundred and sixty
years all of that unlucky species of
tuneless birds continued to be the
victims of literary ambition, contrib
uting by their pain to the pleasure
of historians, poets, philosophers and
accountants, lhe quills of the duck
and crow were used for delicate man
uscript. To avoid the annoyance ot
making and mending pens it was at
first attempted to arm the ribs of the
quill pen with points of metal, iridium
and diamond. X he same experiment
was tried with pens of horn and tor
toise shell, by inserting d.amonds in
tbe points. From these camo pens of
gold with ruby points, which were
claimed by the inventor to be as firm
as the swau quill and as free as the
An inventor named Wise began
about 1320 to imitate the quill pen
in steel, but the "scratchy' articles,
though sold at two or three shillings
apiece, were but poor substitutes for
the quill. Jcseph Gillot, a stationer
and dealer in these "perpetual pens'
of wire, invented the triple slit for
the steel pen aud introduced such
improvements in metal and machi
nery that bis pens became celebrated
throughout Europe and America.

a man win ens in one aay many
thousand of pens. The steel is made
at Sheffield, from the best Swedish
iron, and is received at the manufac
tory in sheets eight feet long and
three feet wide. These were rolled
thin and split into strips in width
equal to about twice the length ot pen
to be made. These strips are passed
through a machine which cuts out
the black flat shape with extreme
iapidity. These blanks go through
many operations, such as Blitting the
side s, piercing, tempering, marking,
hardening in Oil, retempering, polish
ing in a revolving cylinder with sand
aud emery, grinding the points, mak
ing the central slit, which is the moat
important operation ot all, and finally
coloring and varnishing. The sev
eral operations bring out the full
benefit of divided labor, each opera
tive performing but one. Such skill
ia attained that a girl will cut 14,000
blanks in one day, and a man will
cut .central slits in 28,000 per day.
The day's work being done in ten
hours, he handles 2,800 pens each
hour. or forty-seven pens each minute.
Thus, with the number ot hands men
tioned, the manufactory of Mr. Gil
lott turned out the enormous quantity
of 150,000,000 pens per annum, or
416,000 per day.
Various improvements have been
attempted by other makers. Mr.
Perry cut holes in the shoulders of
the pen in order to give it greater
elasticity without materially leEseii'ng
the necessary thickness of the plate.
He also adapted a sliding band, which
being moved up or down increased or
diminished at will the elasticity of
the points. Some of his pens were
likewise fitted with bands of gum
elastic, by means of which he pro
duced a pen obedient to the most
delicate pressure. All of his pens
were carefully made and elaborately
advertised in prose and verse, a puff
("we beiieve by Hood) being exelV
sively copied for its literary merit-
In this, however, the poet only fol
lowed the example ot Byron, who
was undoubtedly paid lor singing
about the 'incomparable cil" of
Gowland's slip pen, "lunar" pen,
oblique pen, fountain pens, and pens

never make the pen-handle "point

tainea tome success, the same
maker Invented an attachment by
means of which capilliary attraction
kept the points uniformly supplied
with ink, however much distended..

have been lately made in nreuiUe

LOST IN THE SNOW.
An Adventure in Northern Colorado.
Tuesday, the 23d of January, 1872,
will long be remembered by the peo- m
pie ot Northern Colorado. Snow '
covered the ground, yet the weather
was pleasant, and the mountains stood
out grandly m the sunlight. On the
a! ter noon of this day, Jeremiah Fisk
left the Highley coal mine with a load
of coal for his home in Greeley. The
distance is fourteen miles. Two
teams had gone before him, and oth
ers were on the way to the mine. A
little after 4 o'clock, when in sight of
town, he passed two of his neighbors
cutting ice in a lake seven miles north
west ot Greeley. The Cache la Pou-
dre River lay at the foot of the slope,
about two miles south of him, and the
road leads almost directly down to
the river, and follows it to the town
limits. Not long after leaving the
lake he heard a noise like the roaring
of a great waterspout. Instinctively
he turned toward the mountains;
they were calm and beautiful aa in the
morning, but northward, where the
Black Hills rise from the plains, he
saw a vast wall of cloud approaching
with the speed of a whirlwind. Tha
roaring increased. . At this moment
the frozen tidal wave touched the foot
hills and chased the sunbeams from
the mountains like an avalanche.-
The horses rushed forward in tenor.
and a second later they were in
darkness, the storm sweeping over
them with resistless fury. Snow, fin
er than the finest flour, filled the air
so that it was impossible to see a hun
dred feet in any direction. Fisk
wrapped a bafTalorobe around his
neck and shoulders, and nrged the
trembling horses forward, but they
could not keep the road, and ia a few
minutes the plain was as trackless as
the sea. After the horses had left
the beaten way they could scarcely
walk, and it was not long-before they
refused to move. The darkness in
creased, and the mercury was rapid
ly running down to zero.
No time must ba lost. The traces
were unhooked, and mounting the
strongest horse, Fisk attempted to
urge him forward ; but he would not
go on. Then he led them for a time.
but lacking strength to keep the
buffalo robe from blowing away, he
left the team and pushed ou before
tha wind, for the wind was his only
compass. In many places the snow
was deep, and more than twenty times
the strong man was hurled into the
drifts, so terrible was the storm. By
8 oclock the murcury stood at ten
degrees below zero. The snow blew
from all points of the compass, and
penetrated every stitch of his cloth
ing that was not protected by the
robe. The man knew that death was
on his trail. Uis strength was failing
rapidly, and the cold increasing with
the tury ot the storm. All his gar-

he crossed the river a few hundred
feet below Boyd's ranche : but he has
only a faint recollection of stumbling
down a bank, and of dreaming that
he might possibly be near a house.
He felt that his time had almost come.
To go on was madness; yet he could
not stop, except to brush away the
frozen tears, for a wife with her babes
are waiting and praying, not three
He managed to walk an hour longer
when dizziness came on, and his brain
reeled like the storm. Then he began
digging a hole in the deepest drift he
could find. It was like digging his
own grave, for he knew not how soon
he might sink with exhaustion. After
working a long time the ground was
reached, and, then drawing the robe
over his head, he waited for the snow
to bury him. The wind did its work
well, and in an hour eighteen inches
of snow covered his ic-of of fur.
Neuer did a man long to sleep more
than he, but he knew that if he clos
ed his eyes it would be forever.
Burning pains shot through his swol
len limbs, and his legs cramped as if
on the racb, and, and finally something
like nettles prickled in his boots.
Then he knew that his feet were freez
ing. Was he to die after all the
hours of agony ? No, he would keep
his muscles moving, and he did so
long after his toes were frozen stiff.
Hour after hour this man fought with
At daylight he crawled out.
Houses were near. Then he stagger
ed and fell ; got up again, and then
dragged his frozen limbs toward the
limits of the town. Aiter walking for
an hcur he reached Cooper's Ranche
the summer residence of our Town
Clerk and pushed in the back door.
Another hour was consumed in cak
ing a fire- Some matches, a piece of'
caudle and an old broad-axe were
found. Then he melted snow in an
old pail and thawed his frozen feet
He also found dry clothing and a pair
of cavalry boots. Although com
pletely exhausted, he started for
Greeley a distance of two miles. The
mercury was eighteen degrees below
zero, and it took him an hour to walk
a single mile. Ofien Be thought he
would fall to the ground. The hous
es seemed to spin around as he passed
them, and familliar steets, in which he
saw children playing the day before,
were but tbe land marks of a dream.

and staggered to the door. Then
