that no limn can number, most of
whom I never niw before nml never

of (5eor(,'o Stephenson, the perfector of
the locomotive engine, the scientists
proved conclusively that n railroad
train could never be driven by steam-pow
er successfully w ithout peril; but
the rushing express trnlns from Liverpool
to Kdlnburgh, nndfrom IMInbnrgh
to London liavo made nil tho nntlon
witnesses of tho splendid achievement.
Machinists and naf igators proved conclusively
that a steamer could never
cross the Atlantic ocean; hut 110 sooner
had they successfully proved tho impossibility
of such an undertaking than
the work was dono nml the passengers
on tho Cunard and the Inman and the
National and tho White htnr lines arc
Thcro went up n guffaw of vIm

So in tho time of Christ It was proved

him to rise from the dead. It was shown
logically that when a man was dead he
was dead, and the heart and tho liver
nnd the lungs having ceased to perform
their oftlces tho limbs would be rigid
beyond all power of friction or arousal.
They show ed It to be ah nlisolutn
that tho dead Christ should ever
get upamc;but no sooner had they
proved this than the dead Christ arose
and the disciples beheld him, nnd heard
His voice, nnd talked w 1th Hlm.nnd they
took tho w itness stand to prove that to

Now, let mc play tho sceptic for n
moment. "There is no Rod,' says the
sceptic, "for I have seen him
w ith my physical eycMght Your ltiblo
is a pack of contradictions. Thero never
was a Lawns was not
raised fron. tho dead, and tho water
was nevsrr turned into wine. Your re

'moving In that pew ns though lie would
like to respond Hero are hundreds of
people with faces a little flushed at
these announcements and all through
this throng there is a suppressed feeling
which woutd like to speak out in
behalf of tho truth of our glorious
Christianity, as in the days of the te.xt,
crying out, "Wo aro witnesses!"
Tho fact is, that if this world is ever
brought to God it will not be through
argument but through testimony.
You might cover the whole earth w Ith
npologles for Christianity and learned
treatises In defense, of religion you
would not convert a soul. Lectures on
the harmony between science and religion
aro beautiful mental discipline,
but have never saved a soul, and never
will save n soul. I'ut n man of the
world and a man of the church against
each other nnd the man of tho world
will in all probability, get tho triumph.
Thero are a thousand things in our religion
that seem illogical to the world,
nnd always will seem illogical.
Our weapon in this conllict Is faith,
not logic; faith, not metaphysics; faith,
not profundity; faith, not scholastic
exploration. Hut then, in onlcr to havo
faith, we must hao testimony, and if
600 men, or 1,000 men, or .'.00,000 men,
or 5,000,000 men get up and tell me they

Joy, a comfort a help, an inspiration,
I am bound as a fair-minded man to accept
their testimony. I want just now
to put before you three propositions,
tho truth of which I think this audience
will attest with overwhelming
unanimity. Tho first proposition is:
We nro witnesses that the religion of
Christ is able to convert a soul. Tho
Gospel mny have had a hard time to
conquer us, wo may havo fought It
back, but we were vanquished. You

There never was so great a change In

mode to spend tho last dollar. The
Washington correspondent of tho Now
York World U.1U how tho pension ofJIc
was run at terrific speed during the
last week of the year in order to get
rid ot all the money, if possible. Ho
tells how, with ingenious aid from tho
war department nearly 23,000 claims
were disposed of in that time against a
possible 1,030 under the less Ingenious
and effective system under which tho
bureau was formerly operated. Hero
is good matter of boasting when tho
able commissioner cames to toll the old
soldiers face to face how good he has
Tho truth seems to bo that a certain
kind of economy the economy of do-lay
and postponement was practiced
when thcro was an excellent prospect
that the treasury would bo In a tight
placo beforo the end of the year, and
that when the bookkeeping device for
increasing tho balance was perfected
the bureau force was set to work on
claims at breakneck speed to make
amends to the old soldier for tho previous
dilatory policy. The result is thnt
the commissioner is able to brag of
economy when addressing tho general
public and of prodigious diligence nnd
activity when addressing tho old soldiers
Thus tho pension office Is not run on
business principles, but partly for th"
accommodation of the psrpl'j.xti 1
ury department and In still greater
part for politlcul effect Tho kind of
economy practiced is not for thu good
of Uxpayers. Tho money ultimately
required to meet pension claims v.'U
not be ono dollar less on account of
delay in passing thorn, and it is
to bo considerably moro on no
count of the tremendous rush nt thu
end of the ye ir, which no doubt swept
on iu tho flood thousands of fraudulent
clultns. Chicago Herald.

A number of young women were at
work In tho rear of b littlo store In
Fourteenth street not fnr from Filth
avenue, tho other day, when two pretty
women entered. One, who looked as
if sho wore usually very nmlnble, was
quite cross just thon, mid scowled
ns n clerk ontno forward to wait
"Thoso gloves I bought here n short
time ago." sho said, Indignantly, "aro
made of tho shoddiest kind of material.
I don't understand how you camo to soil

reason to oxpect at least ordinary wearing

for n pair of gloves See, I tiave
only worn them half a dozen times, nnd
the thumbs nnd mlddlo fingers lu both
gloves nre full ot little holes In
bsothor day they won't stand putting
on nny more."
She held up her hands to prove her
statements nnd, sure enough, tho gloves
wcro wont ns she had described. The
clerk listened calmly to her, nnd when
she had finished ho said:
"I nm very sorry that you have had

"Wiy. cnu you do that?" asked tho
now moilfled young woman In surprise.
"Certainly," ssld the otork; "we en-'ago
to keep every pair of gloves wo

"But won't the new fronts look different
from the rest of the glove?"
"Oh, no. Wo will giro you n new
pair if you nro not satisfied"
Tho woman left the glovos and went
away contented. There are awveral
stores lu town when gloves ar sold
under a guarantee to keep them In repair
for n certain tinm fro- of charge.
