What ths Lite Sr. Munsey Thought
theEc&lity of Sell. !-. .
The question whirh Las been dis
cussed lor several weeks by the press
of the country as to whether there be
a hell, is answered by the lute Dr. V.
E. Munsey, as delivered to one of bis
congregations in East Tennessee many
years ago, and retried from .memory
by a young lady. 1 1 is as follows: "A lost
soul, a lost soul! two words of the most
momentous meaning, and v. hen takeu
in connection with those other two,
eternal lieJI, how expressive of the ut
most agony and pro found est depths of
titter misery! I have tried to believe
there was no bell, and souirbt in those
pages of the Mlble Where the idea of
. o : exi,ressed. to eliminate their
meanim; from the words; but there it
' stands, still burning in the word of
I(Jod eternal hell! I do not kmm
i where hell is- hether a place or state
: of misery; either is bad enough.
I Whethcr'it lie a deep, dark caveun,
j tilled with gloom, n here serpents hiss,
; and creep from crack and cranny; of
j I. '.lows deep, and gloomy and rocks
I deep-riven, where devils eep and
I cveepjand goblinsdance on dingy hills,
( and hery flames ooc out from fis
sures deep, where dark tiends ride on
I dragons; or whether it lie a sphere
I whirling through uncreated space, a
1 volcivtdc world whirling on its -course
erratic through ethereal nothing, m
ro-'ky sphere, tilled with gorges black
aim uavnns "luaim, -ivini
hurninir lava and blackened scoria
I abstrusely gleaming through a light
i half darkness, half hazy light; or sui-
iose there is no lie!!, a lost soui--what
wit? Bring the word W down to
natural things a nhip in theinidt of
the ocean, the compasH overboard, the
end rudder gone, sails in shreds, sail
ors unable to make their reckoning,
the time expired at port for their re
turn lost ! Jost ! at last sinking to
ocean's caves, where mermaids stretch
the sailer lioy's limlis in his jvatery
!el. Or take a lost child in the wmx!s.
A child froesout to gather berries, goes
on and on, round that hill unl up this
hollow crossing aud re-cnainiug iijs
patli, until he is lost, and now he wan
ders on, sobbing, lost ! lost! weeping
for his mother there, the mother at
home weeping for her darlimr. until
at hlt the --weary cLHrt, dcKpalrliig
and tired, lies down and dies, while
birds chirp and sing above his sylvan
death-bed. Jiut lost soul! eternally
lot, thrust out from 'od, a spark
formed fitP social companionship, cast
out from (.iotl tonipanjoiiless! while
as star shines to star, and even the
comet, erratic in its course, as it cross
es aud re-crosses orbits and eclipses,
whirling about in fiery chides round
the sun, aife,u;wjedire one common
centre; as In the company ,-f the
white-robed saints together with the
tall sons of the morning, soul answers
to soul in the rapturous language of
heaven, while they swell their peans
to almighty Cf'od this oul, lost eter
nally, is cast forth aioMe o v. heel its
dismal flight forever through unsea

way, aud sure in, J-'it .' Anon it dis

na cower w epeaz.
Philadelphia C -rreponden;e of the New
hen Du jlourier, tlie. clever J-.n-
irlisli rfist, drew his picture, showlmr
that in tle futnre the Tiotes t.f operfttii
singers would tie Uttleil and stored
awny in a tiin to le drawn at leisure,
be little thought how soon hi sarcas
tic hit would be realized by an tageni
ous American mechanic. It can be
done at present in a much more sim
ple manner, and Jn place- of glaas bot
tles, Which are liable to " break," the
notes of Albani or Cary can Jie trans
ferred to thin sheets ot tinfoil that can
be carried easily in one's rest pocket.
AU this ami much more can be per
formed by the wonderful speaking
phonograph which was exhibited to a
small tarty of invited guests in Phila
delphia on last .Saturday by Mr.- Hen
ry Wently, President of the Local Tel
egraph Company. This little inrtru-
ment, wnien resembled -an old-fash
ioned coffee mill more than anvthintr
else, was invented by T. A. Edison, of
rsew Jersey, who is now euiraged m
constructing a muchlargwronej which
is to nave a catmcity or ji.uou words.
The one exhibited was capable, of. re
prodiwinK aboit 5 word" iu every
variety' n accvtiT aittf time: A rCftitier
mouthpiece enclosed a thin diaulirugm
of ferrotype metal, which was easily
iarrel ny tlie voice, causing a steel
needle underneath to vibrate- in uni
son. Around a grooved iron cylinder
was win pi ed a sheet of tinfoil, and the
mouthpiece adjusted so that the nee
dle point rested lightly upon the foil.
The operator talks into the mouth
piece aud turns the cylinder at the
same time, and the needle travels in
the grooves around the tinfoil, making
indentations iu the surCtce at every
vibration caused by the voice. When
the entire surface lias lieen traversed,
the mouthpiece is readjusted to the
starting point, and as the crank is
turned the needle springs trom nolo to
hole in the tinfoil, causing the dia
phragm to vibrate as it did when orig
inally iarred by the voie3. As this
causes the opening and sliuttingof the
valves of the diaphragm, everything
that lias been said in the mouthpiece
is reproduced with startling accuracy.
The explanation havinir been conclu
ded, the operator said slowly arid dis
tinctly in the mouthpiece:
Now is the winter of our discontent
Made slorious summer by ir-ls kuu of York;
And all the clouds th t lowered upon our
iu the deep bosom of the ocean burled '.
lllii ! Hip: Hutrah!!! Three cheers for
Uen. Uraul! Houpla! Yahoo!
The cylinder was then reset, aud
the niachinereiieated the words in pre
cisely the same tone, causiugshouts of
laughter from the spectators. Anoth
er trial was then made, the operator
saying in the mouthpiece:
I inoe Iu Persia lived a K Ing,"
Who upon his signet ring
Oraved a maxim wise aud true,
Which he ever k-pt In view.
And repeated day by day,
fEveu thUi 't-hall pass away."
"My little instrument, if Iliad had

wouldn't we have astonished the for
eigners? I rather think o. Wouldn't
the Chinese have oiiened their almond
eyes when they heard you talking to
them in broken l lima . j-ieigno : ad,
The effects of this siieeob, wneu re
produced by the machine, was ludi
crous in the extreme, and for several
minutes nothing could be heard but
the roars of laughter of all present, in
which the operator joined heartily. A
nutnlier of other speeches wen then
riven in the mouthpiece, : including1

graph in a manner that would have
"brought down the house" upon any
occasion. After several other experi
ments the party separated, having di
vided the sheets of the foil that were
used to preserve as souvenirs of the oc
casion. Tlu: inot wonderful thiii!;
about the phonograph is its simplicity.
No electricity, magnets or other agents
are employed in working it, as it is
purely a meclianical contrivance. The
jnrs fire all made of ordinary cast
iron, with f lie ckueption or the dia
phragm, as before stated, and the ma
chine itself could be made by any me
chanic and oiierated by a child. Its
capacity for diflusing amusement and
instruction seems unlimited, and It
may be classed' as que j-bje wqndera.
of the age.

PoMy Pardon dress, all ruffled and
flounced -and pleted and tucked up
with dead oodles of ribens and jewelry,
and hy-heeled shoes to match hit.
Take her all in a lump she ar the pur
tlest gal in the world. She jist fitted
that ii r winder and that ar winder jist
fitted bur. A gal always did look nitv
ia a winder at meetin, specially if tlie
winder war purty hy, but none ever
looked so nice to me before. Then she
liehaved so ladylike too, she didn't set
likq a statu, listenen to the sarmiut
like most of the gals do back iu ole I
zard, but she war htflin and taukiii all
the time,, an showed she war enjoyin
the tiarmiat-fust rate. People ar not
so iurtielar here at meetin as they are
back in Arksnsaw. - This yer gal in
trested hie more than evervthimr else
at that ar meetin. Presently hur and
another gat what had on a nu caliker
dreas. Went to the spring, 1 punched
Cousin Pesker and we went too, fur I
war mity dry. When we got to the
spring Cousiu'Pesker give me a pro
duction to lHr,-and bur natne oh.
what a sweet name ft war Popsie Po.
I sorter stood bacK and sorter on one
sides my yeers stuck up ou the side of
my head like a pet Pig's when yoli j
tickle bl m under tlie Jaw. To tell you
the troth f don't know how jid fci
nor what 1 done, nor what I scd, I felt
so all-overish. 1 felt like I wantetl to
give her something the first thing 1
recollect. I thought I had a stick of
candy, but I didn't. O! I would a give
Roper. fur a stick of candy. I hud a
half a ginger cake left, I gave her that
and she cut it just like anuthur gal
wood, and sed it war bully. I stood a
long time and didn't say enythimr, fur
I didn't know what to say. At hist
6he ses: Oh, Mr. Wiggins. I looked
around fur Dad, fur some folks call
him Mr. Wiggins Mr. Wiggins, oh
how it sounded! M. Wiggins from
lijis so sweet war far sweeter than the
musick of Mam's dinner horn wheu
one are tired and hungry. Mr. Wig
gins, have you got sum terbacker?
Yes, ses f , and give hur a hole slab;
aud she took a chaw jest like I do, and
scd it w-ar good.
Soz I, it ar nice wether. She sed it
war splendid. Ses 1, thar ara heap of
pi-ople here to-day. Sez she, lots of
'em. Then I axed her if I mout go
home with her. She sed I mout.
Then she went and got on her fine lit
tle spotted boss and I got ole Itojier
aid we started. We hadn't gone fur
wheu her boss begun to pitch and
pitch dreadfully. You folks I wick in
Arkansaw don't know enj thing aUiut
a boss pitchiu. Well, the way the in
fernal things do it ar this: They tucks
down thar heads letween thar fort
!aig4 and stiffen all their legs, and rX
up behind and kick up before, and jist
keep a doin sorter like a sheep when
he are skeered, or a ash saw mill
when s,he ar rtfhuin away. I don't
know what made Popsie's darned boss
do it jest then, unless he jes wanted to
show out. The fust thing I noed he
war bouncin jest like thunder and li
teniii all over that or bottom. Popsie
froze to him but at last the geert
broke aud spilt the saddle and Popsie
on the ground all in a pile together. 1
swar I wouldn't a give aouart puckons
then an thar for Popsie's life 1 jist
noed she war kilt. 1 kryedsariin, iu
before I poud git to her by golly ' she
had crawled outen that ar pile, and
war a holdin and a cussin tliatar boss;
and ho war still pitchin (away, so that
I could not tell whether she war a
kussin at the ditchin, or he pitchin ut
the kussin. She hit him. t tell you

IntcklKtne. . She ar tru blue aartht, And
she ar the bet on a strate out kussin

what might have been expected under
the circumstances simply gorgeous.
There were belles of all shades ot col

excitement over the award of the la
dy's prize, particularly, rose hnjb, for
tlie price was a silver pitcher. " "Dc
committee on prizes" had a delicate
task, but performed it firmly and
there was trouble, awful trouble, in
consequence. . A llcpublican reporter
yesieruay iuaue inquiries on tne : sub
ject from one of the participants in
the festivities. He told the stwy as
"De flo' wuz just jammed fuilo' gals
dressed way up, but dar wuz a culled
gal from Memtis laid 'em all out, for

and dar wasn't no dissenshun voice

She stood talkin' by one culled gem

another gal come up both eyes a bla

1 " You 's talkin' to niy fellah, you
brazen trash, an' 1 wont 'low it!"
"De gal from Memfis answered

One thing is Certain the hostile squad

particular part will be veryniall. It

will now, more than ever, depend the
issue of an engagement. The speed of
the shijis, the necessity of closely
watching every movement of the ene
my W as instantly to make the proper
oounter-move, the absolute need of
prompt decision, will prevent a mo
ment ior reneeiiou or consultation.
The helm and the engines must tie
under the captain's instant control.
He and those hy him on deck will
alone be able to see the enemy at the
rreiment times wuen he is obsured by
smoke from the battery below, and to
distinguish between friend and fbe:
and his quck perception will tie re

tion and range for hi guns, as well as
avoid tiring into friends. Tlve extreme
importance of the life of the officer in
command of a squadron, so long as the
buttle ioiis, murt also lie apjiareiit. Jn
the old wars, the skill, judgment and
determination of our naval command
ers were chiefly exhibited by the man
ner in which they sought out their ad

If the captain were disabled, the duty
ut his. eUiiiedsor was simple and self-ev-i.tent;
if he were incompetent, his de

principal officers; if he lacked eouraire.

renins had ruado all the necessary lis
iMiejtions fur buttle Unh at the Nile
aud. Trafalgar long before the action
commenced; the captains had only to
steer their ships for their allotted ad

crew. Had Nelson been killed by the

of the liaUle would havfe-'Bicu ibe

should be lie killed or disabled at a
critical moment, the consequences
would probably be most serious. , It Is
not too much to say that the result of
a naval engagement in these days
will dfiteud entirely upon the skill of
the siijierior officers, in default of
which the courage and discipline of
the crews will avail little.
Our young girls do not understand
