Jut now I missed from hall and etair
A joyful treble that had grown
As dear to me ,as that grave tone ;
That tells the world my older care.
Aud little footsteps on the floor
AVere stayed. I bid a.lde my pen,
Forcot my theme, and listened ; then '
Stole softly to the library door.
No sight! no sound 1 a moment's freak
Of fancy thrilled my pul-es through ;
"If no" and yet that faticy drew
A father's blood from heart and cheek.
And then 1 found him. There he by
Surprised by sleep, caught in the act,
The rosy vandal who had sacked
His little ton and thought it play.
The shattered Take; the broken jar;
A match still smouldering on the floor;
The inkstand's purple pool of gore;
The cheskmen "cattcrcd near and far.
Strewn leaves of albums lightly pressed
This nicked "Uaby of the woods;"
In fact, of half the household good
Thin son and heir wan heized posseted.
Vet ail In vain, for sleep had caught
The hand that reached, the feet that
And fallen In that ambuscade,
The victor was himself o'erirrottght.
What though torn leaves and tattered
Still testify his deep disgrace?
I stooped and Mtscd bin inky f.icc,
'.Villi its demure and calm outlook.
Then back I stole, and half beguiled
My guilt, in trust that when my sleep
Should come, there might be one ho'd
An equal mercy for His child.

A lecture ilelivereil by Kev
Kansas city, May llUi.
Combination and co-ordination must be
accounted for. This Is u fiat Lionel IScjIc
and twenty of the orcmot German philos
ophers arc teaching in their standard mirks.
Hut jou don't read them m lou do maga
ylnes and nen spapcrs; it Is a pity. Laugh
ter. God bless tho newspapers. Laugh
ter. Carljlo said, "We must destroy the
power of the penny press." We ought cer
tainly to destroy the power of second-rate
newspapers as scientific authorities, and the
cackling pamphlets called monthlies and
quarterlies of the unscicntitic species as
scientific authorities. How much docs the
the viceroy of Iudiawrito for the magazines
or any of the great scientific men for the
monthlies, which deal with .ucstlonsadjpt-
cd to the hour, and not to eternity. Lionel
Ueale says be docs not write to the maga
zincs lor fear his students should come to
regard him as superficial. The great scien
tific men of the day speak in books; and
the freshet books are a long way off from
materialism, both in Germany and Hiigljnd.
And you ought to read tliein far more than
you do in this hurrying age. If wo could
ouly give to them one-fourth ol the time
wc waste over newspapers, how wise might
wc be at the eudo! fhejears.
I shall now venture to look into the eye
of the bet materialistic school, and answer
it, as I have done in Edinburgh, face to
face with Professor Alexander Bain, the
author of one of the best works of this
school. He defines matters as a "double
faced somewhat, physical at one cud aud
spiritual at the other." laughter. I gave
this definition to one professor, who said it
was "nonsense;" to another, who said it
might stand as a definition of what certain
ly has two sides to it. ISain does not shrink
from admitting that inertia is one of the
properties of matter. Carpenter, Sir John
Herschel aud I.otzo say that all the force iu
the world exists in will God's will. 31 y
little will force can lift this stick, but what
must be the w ill force that can hurl the con
stellations through space? Alfred Tenny
son says :
"God is law, say the wise; -Oh
1 soul aud let us rejoice, 4
Korll be thunder bylaw,
The thunder is yet Ills voice.
Speak to Him, for He hears,
And spirit with spirit may meet;
Closer is he than breathing.
And nearer than hands and feet.
That is what Carlyle calls the open secret
of natural supcrnaturalism the omnipres
ence of God in the forces around in. This
makes the wholo uuherse of God a burniii:
bush like that which Moses saw, aud on the
dustiest part of common life we must near
the words: "Take off the shoes Irom off
Ihy feet, for the ground on which thou
standest is holy." I,ct us take l'rof. Ilaiu
at his word. When Captain Cook saw the
shores or New South Wales, was his joy tri
angular? Or when Lincoln freed the slaves
was his joy polygonal or some other shape?
If the imagination ot an ordinary man would
weigh an ounce, would that or Shakspeare
weighaton? Is love red or green? I know
it Isgreen sometime., but ouly by metaphor.
We thus see the nonsense of trying to meas
ure thought or emotion in a literal sense.
Although he Is a shrewd Scotchman, bo
says, "You may put opposing traits togeth
er, and then jou can explain everything by
matter considered as a double-faced some
what, physical on ono side and spiritual on
the other." Now let us look at that. It
simply means this, that it is not true as has
been always held that a door cannot bo open
and closed at the same time. Tho learned
professor says Ucau iryjuonly open and
shut It in "close succession," and then it
will bo "double-fared somewhat, physical
on the one side and spiritual on the other,"
an will admit us Into the new temple of
victorious materialistic philosophy. Laugh
ter. Now It is agreed lhatclcardclinitions
should always be given. Is that clear? or
is It a.Scotchmlsl? Applause. Itutbe
not afraid to enter It and you shall sec how
self-contradictory Rain's philosophy is. aud
yet he Insists on his own schools being ex.
amincd in his own books. This is a free
platform, and I am frank; but no more so
than in England and Scotland. Iu India,
his books have been thns thrust on the stu
dents, aud yet if you pulverize the central
truth they contain, you must grant my
whole case : that there mu't bo something
that mores the shuttle.
You may call" that power "Christianity"
if you like ; but there Is some power, and
as it is generally called lire, I ak yod' to
use that term. Herbert Spencer once tried
to give a definition of what his terra "life"
means and you know how important it ts
in a definition to use only words that will
be clearly understood. He said : "Life is
the combination of heterogeneous changes,
both simultaneous and successive in corre
spondence with eternal co-existence and se
quences." That may amuse an audience, but it ought
to lie clear, and is not. Aristotle defines
life as the cause of form In organisms.
Whether that be correct or not, it Is notin
telllgcnt. If I wero a'sked to bring the def
Initlon up to these days, I should say lire Is
the power which directs the motions of ger
minal matter. I beg you to notice I do not
ay the power which causes the motions ol

causes them. It directs lbs notion, like
the rudder directs tbe.boat, which would
otherwise drift; but it is the man in 'the
boat who causes the nnWer.to lie turned in
a certain way. So I say a man docs not
cause all the motion in hit own body; but
be direct it all. I do not deny there are
chemical affinities and eo-ordinarts. But
take the man ont of the boat, and the boat
drifts helplessly to ruin ; and take the life
out of the man and similar results follow.

Longfellow did when he wrote an ode on
Agasslz's birthday and said :
It was fifty years ago
In the beautiful month of 3Iay,
In the beautiful Pays du Vaud,
A babe in bis cradle lay.
Aud Nature, the old nurse, took
The babe upon her knee,
"Come wander w ith me," she said
"Into regions yet untrod,
And read what is still unread,
In tbo manuscripts or God."
And be wandered away and away,
With Nature, the dear old nurse,

The rhymes or the Universe.
And whenever the way seemed long,
Or bis heart began to fail,
She would ting a more wonderful song,
Or tell a more marvelous (ale.
What sings she to Agasslz now that he

It was; "Although a tiiytterywlilchcanuot

were immortality and the necessity of a
new birth, an atonement, and of au eternal

ELI IN THE FAR WEST.
Out in Westers Kx3A8,May 23, 1S83.
It was a sad, sad sight, In which was
blended tears and laughter. On the Santa
Fe train was a large (amity of Germans, so
fresh from the ship that you could smell tbe
steerage odor. There were fathers and
mothers, brothers and sisters, and a raft of
little ones. Some were able to crawl up and
sit on the seat ; others still at the breast.
They were all bound for the Neosho valley.
All were tired, huugry and worn out from
a four-weeks passage. They had left crowd
ed Germany, where they had been strug
gling for an existence, and they were going
to their new home in the new world. Ir
they started with auy money it gave out
before they reached Kansas City, for on the
train they were eating Mack bread and salt.
When the children cried for meat or some
thing better than tale black bread, the
mother hushed them an J told them they
would soon be at Plymouth, beyond Empo
ria, where they would meet Uncle Ilelurich
and Aunt Lena, aud when they got on the
farm they would all have meat and milk.
"Oh, it will be heaven." said one ol the
women, "to Hie in a country where our
children can have all the meat and milk they

Gernuu-1 began to raise the windows and
admire the beautiful country along the San
ta Fe road. The next station was the long-hoped-for
new home. Then,wheutho rosy-
cheeked children were fixed, they took
white handkerchiefs out of their bags aud
put them around their own uecks. Poor,
women, they had but one dress on earth,
but as they were going to see brothers and
sisters aud neighbors who had been away
from Germany and living in Kansas fortive
years, they wanted to look as well as they
"The next station is the place," .-aid a big
healthy German, as he lied a blue handker
chief over his old soiled collar, "and here
we'll nev er be hungry agaiu. Here my lit
tle babies can have all they want to eat."
"Will your friends meet you at tho train?
I asked, becoming deeply interested in tho
poor but now happy group.
"Yes, they know we aro coming this
week, aud they'll bo down to every train.
Heinricli's farm Is only two two miles off."
"There they are, waiting for us!" said
the wire, stretching her bead out or the
window, and sure enough there stood a
crowd or twenty American-Germans on
tbe platform as tbe train drew up. Soon
the rubers and mothers led the way oil the
train, carrying the big bundles, the chil
dren following with the dozens ol little
packages. As they struck the platform
brothers and sisters ami fathers and children
came together iu a long embrace. Every
eye was dimmed with tears. Eery voice
faltered, and every throat choked with emo
tion. It was the pathos of great joy. But
soon they wiped their tears away aud began
to laugh and pat and smooth each other on
Then the Kansas Germans led them
across the street to a hotel, where a big
dinner was ordered. For the first time iu
their lives these poor German emigrants
ate beefsteak and fried eggs, cake and pie,
aud fresh Texas cabbage. It was worth a
day's travel to see these appetites appeased.
I became so absorbed in this little episode
that I could not keep my eyes off of them.
It was a scene of the most heartfelt joy I
ever witnessed. I could not look at the
scene without wiping aw ay a tear myself,
and 1 cannot speak or it now without my
throat choking with emotion.
When dinner was over they all went out
aud got into new lumber wagons with
bright green boxes, and rode but to the
new home on the (arm.
Having occasion to lay over In the town
to meet a lecture engagement, I rode out
to the new German farm this morning to
see how the new emigrauts were getting
aloug. 1 found the Kansas Germans had
had them all over the farm berorc break-
fat. When 1 got there they were showing
their stock. The happy emigrant would
put his hand on a colt's back and smooth
it like a kitten. Then he would examine
the harness, then take hold or a plow han
dle. "This," said tbe Kansas brother, "is the
span or horsos I've got for you, John."
Then John would go and pat them on
their faces and look into their eyes.
The talk or the women iu the bouse
sounded like a school intermission. They
were showing theirstoves and kettles, and
showing how they burned coal and wood
Instead or sticks, and telling how, in Kan
sas, every one has ail the white bread and

"Then," said the woman, "there Is no

THE COW FOR THE MONEY.
Prof. Knapp, in Joica UonutteaJ,saya that
many are the eulogies that have been writ
ten upon the noble horse and sagacious dog
but the cow, the most valuable friend to
man ol all the animals, Is allowed to send
her tributes to the domestic kingdom with
out praise or thanks. From whatever
standpoint we view her contributions to
the food supply of man, she becomes an ob
ject or interest and value. Upon the puri
ty and superlative nutritive character or
her product frequently haugsa life precious
to humanity. She furnishes food and sauce
to tbe poor man's board, and a more than
royal luxury to the table or wealth. With
draw her product and tho culinary art has
not tho skill to make viands or the table
palatable. The dairy cow is the product
and necessity or civilization. Her contri
butions to the wealth or nations iu milk.
cheese and beer, aggregates annually a tre
mendous sum- but this last amount ' but
a triflo when compared to the contributions
to tbe life, health and comfort or man.
The horse belongs to man's luxury; the
dog to bis weakness; the pig to his cash
balances, but the cow to bis home necessi
ties. Wo pay tribute of respect to the cow
while passing to speak or her in relatiou to
tbe dairy, where she must be regarded as a
machine to manufacture the products of
the farm Into milk, and the inquiry is ror
the machine or the greatest power and capacity.
It may be well to define what Is meantby
a good cow. In general terms the follow
ing arc some-of her characteristics:
1. Nature has given her immense vitality,
perfect and well-balanced organs, and pre
served her in the highest healthrulhe,
2. Her digestive and assimilative organs
arc of the largest capacity.
3. All food digested, above what is re
quired to maintain tbo animal in full health
and Tlgor, is converted into milk.
4. Tbe disposition, the size and symmetry
or the animal, the udder and tbe labor ol
milking ore of tbe most desirable kind.
5. As a part or financial consideration,
the animal in style and color Is a creature
of beauty, and possesses such purity of
blood as to be able to transmit her excel
lence. A just Impression of the cow as a
machine is not conveyed by any general

HOW OLD IS ZUNI.
To decide tho age of Zvtal would be to
terminate a discussion tbat has been going
on for three hundred and fifty years. It
puzzled the Spaniards of the time of Cor
tez, as it puzzle the ethnologists or the
Smithsonian Institute to-day. There are
theories enough, almost a many as the
number of those who have studied tbe
question, and sufficient evidence to con
vince tbe learned pundits that tbey are the
oldest people upon the American conti
nent, now In the fading twilight ol their
antique grandeur, almost a old and weary
as the land upon which tbey live-, but who
they are, whence they came, and bow ther
gained their knowledge of the mechanic
aud agricultural arts, is a problem no mor
tal mind can solve.
It is known that the pueblo at present
occupied by them was erected after the
Spanish Invasion of 1540, when old Zuni
was destroyed, and its inhabitants driven
to the mountains to escape punishment for
no crime except that of defending their
own households; but the original town
bore the rust and wrinkles of centuries
when Cabaza de Vaca first saw it In 1W0,
and the report of Coronado, the invader,
who visited the place at the bead or his
army ten years after, regards its antiquity
with wonder and awe. Later investiga
tions hare discovered that even old Zuni
stood, upon a heap of ruined walls, that
must have been centuries old when tbe
town, who-c age no one can number, was
When the old priest NaMu-tchi was ask
ed by the InUr-Oceau correspondent bow
long his people had been at Zuni, he re
"So long that could any one tell it. the
reply would be, How long Is that?"
And when he went on to iay, that they
had been there "since tbe time when our
fathers were born from the womb of the
earth. When they came here they brought
with tbeni tbo scalp or a great priest,
which was as full o( hair as my own bead.
Eight hundred years after they came the
world was filled with water, and they went
into the mountains for safety. They car
ried the scalp with them, and each year
they sacrificed a hair. More generations
ago than I could count on all my lingers
the last hair was sacrificed. Then my peo
ple thought the world would turn over,
but It didn't turn over. In comparison to
that time it was only a lewdays ago that
the ancient Washington came here and
asked us to show them tbe road to the
springs or the Navajos. (This is a refer-
ence to Lieutenant Ives' exploration in
1853.) We passed over tbe plains and tbe
hills covered with pines to a canyon filled
with sage brush aud yellow tops and Hags,
It was a little country like a bowl, and in
the center was a spring, and we called it
the country of (lags I mean cat tails.
Then tbe Americans aat down and they
held a council and built a town."
There are other old pueblos whose origin
cannot be fixed, but around Zuni tbe most
interest clusters. The traditions in sev
eral lillages generally differ; at least three
and, perhaps, four languages are spoken
among them; their modes or worship and
mythology bear but little resemblance, but
upon some points, and the more essential
ones, they show fraternal relations, and
undoubtedly arc the children of the same
sire. The traditions in ail the tribes are
tbat they came from a far country, and
that when they die they will return whence
their rather came ; they hare prophets
who receive revelations: they have fast
days on which they abstain rrom food and
and drink. They possessed the knowledge
of irrigation, and were using it when their
existence was discovered ; and the ruins
which lie all over an area of many thousand
square miles show not only that their pop
ulation was at one tiino very lanre. hut

As a school boy ho atoided the rough

1 HE ACTION OF THE HEART.
As with each stroke the heart projects
something like six ounces of blood into tbe
conduit of the system, and a it does so
some TO time every minute, and 4.200 time
in an hour, this implies that it docs the
same thing 100,800 times In twenty-fbur
hours, 30,000,000 times In a year, and more
than 2,500,000,000 times in a life or seventy
years. The mechanical force that is ex
erted at each stroke amounts to a pressure
of 13 pounds upon tho entire charge of
blood that has to be pressed onward through
tbe branching network or vessels. Accord
ing to the lowest estimate tbat has been
made, this gives an exertion of force that
would be adequate, in another rorm or ni-
plicatlon, to lift 120 tons one root high ev
ery twenty-four hours. Yet the, piece of
living mechanism that is called upon to do
this, and do it without a pause for three
score year and ten without being itself
worn out by the effort, ia a small bundle of
flesh that rarely weighs more than eleven
ounces. It is In the nature of the case, at
so, it must be remembered, tnat the little
vita! machine cannot be at any time stopped
for repair. If it gets out of order, it must
be set right as it runs. To stop the beat
ing of tbe heart for more than the briefest
interval would be to change life Into death.
The narrative of what medical science has

A more or less responsible correspondent
writing from Pari9, says :
"I heard, lately, a curious and perfectly
authentic anecdote respecting President
Buchanan. It is not generally knowu, I
believe, that the White House came near
having at one time an English and a titled
mistress in the person ol that gentleman s
wire. AVhlle Mr. Buchanan was Minister
to tho court of St. James, ho made the ac
quaintance or a widowed lady or very high
rank. A sincere and fen en t attachment
sprang up between tbe pair, and only tbe
opposition or the lady's aristocratfo rela
tives prevented their union. So their mu
tual attachment resulted in nothing more
than a profound and life-long friendship.
A constant correspondence was maintained
between them till the day of Mr. Buclian
an' death. Tbe lady long survived her
Americajp friend, her death taken place on
ly a few years ago. She was always noted
for her kindly reeling toward Americans,
and Tor her predilection ror American soci
ety. Iu a room apart she kept a number of
souvenirs of her friend, Including a Hue
portrait, and also some or hi gift to her
which were mainly ofa literary and nation
al character, such a works by American
authors, the photograph and autograph
of American celebrities, etc."
An old maid died recently lu NorVay,
leaving a will in which she directed tbat

me for my money, which they may now
have, or else they loved me, anil (or thai
reason tbey shall have tbo money, because
I disbelieved them."
Here I a story to Illustrate the efficiency
of Russian police :
Gortschakoff having missed a wallet with
30,000 rouble iu it, informed the police,
who promised to find it In a week. At tho
end or tbe time specified, they brought tho
money, but said they could not recover tbo
book. The prince admired and praised the
efficiency of the police. Some day later,
he round the missing wallet In another
c.-.it, with tho money Intact. Stilt greater
admiration or the police!
