How to Treat the Strangers that Com
Within Our Gates.
TrXT: " Giren to Hospitality."-Roman
There is danger that the multiplication <
large and commodious hotels in our town
and cities, and villaires, will utterly exterm

when he entertainea the angels, and whic
Lot showed when he watched for guests.
the gato of the city, and which Clrist reco;
nized as a positive requisite for enterin
heaven, when he declared: "I was a strang<
nd ye took Me in."
I propose to speak this morninA!)fthe tria
and rewards of Christian hospitality. T1
first trial often comes in the w-hiiand e
centricity of the gue-st himself. There a1
a great many excellent peoplewho have pr
tuberances of disposition. aiI sharp edges
temperament. and unpliability of eharacte
which make them a posit ive nuisance in an
house where they stay. (n shert acquain

Roads to Distinction.
MY DEAR NFPHEW: It has not
>leased me to bear that you contem
p 1a t e entering
W upon the study
of the law, and
giving up the
to become a dis
- iple of Black
stone. I was not
aware, my dear
had any reasons
for being dissat
isfied with your
>resent business, and if you have, I
ail to understand the hitherto hidden
ein of cussedness in your make-up
which has prompted you to risk your
ood name and character by enter:ng
he legal profession.
You say of all the professions that o
the law is the quickest and surest to
wealth and distinction. And I notice,
oo, the emphasis you l)a:-e upon the
Last word. 1 know you have been
fairly educated, that you are bright
nd smart, and that you are counted
among the honest and upright young
men in your community-a po ition
von have won by your conduct and
your business dealings with your
ellow-men. Yet all these you are
ready and anxions to ca-t aside to try
your hand at the wealth and distinction
business as an attorney at law.
I can only account for this s-dden
departure from your usually sen-ible
course, on the grounds that some sleek
tongucd and desiging villai . per
haps your unscrupulous competitor in
business, has been trying to induce you
to run for the I egislature; and you,
knowing that a sensible business man
was never elected to that body, have
felt it necessary.to take a pr. paratory
course in the law
.n the mtnv talks I have given you,
and in the letters of counsel and advice
I have written von, I have warne.1 y.ou

agents, fruit-tree peddlers, pick-pock

it appears that in my inexcusable care
[essness I have never warned you
against the seductive but none the less
-orrupting intluence of the ward poli
My boy, Iregret this; in fact, I am my
5wn accuser for having so long neglect
d so important a duty; especiall. does
it make me feel that I must be enter
ing upon my dotage to think I should
have so long overlooked a matter which
[ m ght have known was so likely to
prove your ruin, as it has that of many
good men before you.
If I am right in my opinions as to
our motives, permit me to suggest
that there is more wealth and distine
tion to be had in becoming .n ., Ider
man than you (an possibly attain in
the patry character of S, ate legislator.
Should you change your mind, and de
eide to run for the City Council, you
might at once take a trip to Canada
and look about a little for a suitable
location. Then whern the time comes
For yon to take up your abode in that
country you will know right where you

hard-earned wealth and distinction.

A Sad Case of Poisoning
Is that of a man or woman afflicted with dis
ease or derangement of the liver, resulting in
poisonous accumulations in the blood, scrofu
lous affections, sick headaches, and diseases of
the kidneys, lungs or heart. These troubles can
be cured only by going to the primary cause,
and putting the liver in ahealthy condition. To
accomplish this result speedily and effectually
nothing has proved itself so eticacious as Pr.
Pierce's "Golden Medical Discovery," which
has never failed to do the work claimed for it.

readily gives relief when headache arises from Indi

the cause and hence overcomes the dificulty.

in the ears. deafness, backing or coughimg to
clear the throat, expectoration of offensive
matter, together with scabs from ulcers; the

mental depression, a hacking cough and gen
eral debility. Only a few of the above-named

"Untold Agony from Catarrh." 1 -
Prof. W. HAtsxnm the famous mesmerist
of lthaca, Y. Y., writes: "Some ten years ago
I suffered untold agony' from chronic nasal
catarrh. My family physician gave me up as
incurable, and said I must die. My case was
such a bad one, that every day, towards sun
set, my voice would become so hoarse I could
barely speak above a whisper. In the moring
my coughing and clearing of my throatwould
almost strangle me. By the use of Dr. Sage's
Catrrh Remedy, in three months, I was a well
man, and the cure has been permanent."
"Constantly Hawking and Spitting"
TnOMAS J. RrsnrIG, Esq., !902 Pine Street,
St. Louis, Mo., writes: "I was a great sufferer
from catarrh for three years. At times I could
hardly breathe, and was constantly hawking
and spitting, and for the last eight months
could not breathe through the nostrils. I
thought nothing could be done for me. Luck
ily, I was advised to try Dr. Sage's Catarrh
Remedy, and I am now a well man. I believe
it to be the only sure remedy for catarrh now
manufactured, and one has only to give it a
fair trial to experience astounding results and
a permanent cure."
Three Bottles Cure Catarrh.
ELI RonnIss, Runyan P. 0., Columbia Co.,
Pa., says: "31y daughter had catarrh when
she was five years old, very badly. I saw Dr.
Sage's Catarrh Remedy advertised, and pro
cured a bottle for her, and soon saw that it
helped her; a third bottle effected a perma
nent cure. She is now eighteen years old and
sound and hearty."
