SALUTATION FROM TILE CHARIOT,
The Searching question: "Is Thine
TEXT: "Is thine heart right ?"-II. Kings
With mettled horses at full speed, for h-'
was celebrated for fast driving. Jehu. the
warrior and king, returns from i-attle. I:ut
seeing Jehonadaib. an acquaintance, by the
wayside, he shouts "'Whoa: whoa" to the
latiered span. Then. leaning over to Jehon
adab, Jehu salautes him in the words of the
text-words not more appropriate for that
hour and that place than for this hour and
Is thine heart right; I should like to hear
of your physical health. \Vell myself, I like
to have everybo I- else well; and so :ight

right, your nerves right, your lungs right,
your entire body right? But I am busy to

I should like to hear of your financial wel
fare. I want everybody to have plenty of
morey, ample apparel, large storehouse, and
comfortable residence. And I might ask: Is
your business right, -our income right, your
worldly surroundings right: But w hat are
these financial questions compared with the
inquiry as to whether you have been able to
pay your debts to God: as to whether you
are ruining yourself by the long credit sys
tem of the Foal! I have known n.-n to have
no more than one !oaf of bread at a time. and
yet to own a government bond of heaven
worth more than the whole material un
The question I ask you to-day is not in re
gard to your habits. I make no inquiry
about your integrity, or your chastity, or
your sobriety. I do not mean to stand on
the outside of the gate and ring the bell: but
coming up the steps I open the door and
come to the private apartment of the soul:
and with the earnestness of a man that must
give an account for this day's work. I cry
out: - 0 man, U woman immortal, is thine
I w : not insult you by an argument to
prove. nat we are by nature all wrong. If
there be a factory explosion and the smoke
stack be upset, and the wheels be broken in
two, and the engine unjointed, and the pon
derous bars be twisted, and a man should
look in and say that nothing was the matter.
yon would pronounce him a fool Well. it
needs no acumen to discover that our nature
is all atwist and askew and unjointed. The
thing doesn't work right. The biggest trouble
we have in the world is with our souls.
Men sometimes say that though their lives
may not be just right, their heart is all right.
Impossible: A farmer never puts the poorest
apples on top of his barrel: nor does the mer
chant place the meanest goods in his show
window. The best part of us is our outward
life. I do not stop to discuss whether we all
fell in Adam, for we have been our own
Adam, and have all eaten of the forbidden
-frtj-andhave ben turned ont of the para
dise of holiness and peace: and though the
eamino sword that stood at the gate to keep
us outhas changed position and comes behind
to drive usin, we will not go.
The Bible account of us is not exaggerated
wnen it says that we are poor and wretched
and miserable and blind and naked. Poor:
the wretch that stands shivering on our door
step on a cold day is not so much in need of
bread as we are of spiritual help. Blind:
why, the man whose eyes .erished in the
powder blast, and who for these ten years
has gone feeling his way from street to street,
is not in such utter darkness as we. Naked:
why, there is not one rag of holiness left to
hide the shame of our si. Sick: why, the
leprosy has eaten into the head and the heart
and the hands and the feet, and the maras
mus of an everlasting wasting away has al
ready seired on some of us.
First we need a repenting heart. If for the
last ten, twenty or forty years of life we have
been going on in the wrong way it is time
that we turned around and started in the
opposite direction. If we offend our friends
we are glad to apologize. God is our best
friend, and yet how many of us have never
apologized for the wrongs we have done Him:
There is nothing that we so much need to
get rid of as sin. It is a horrible black mon
ster. It polluted Eden. It killed Christ. It
has blasted the world. Men keep (logs in
kennels, and rabbits in a warren, and cattle
in a pen. What a man that would be who
would shut thema up in his parlor. But this
foul dog of sin, and these herds of transgres
sion, we have entertained for many a long
year in our heart, which should oe the clean
est, brightest room in all our nature. Out
with the vile herd: Beyone, ye befoulers of
an immortal nature: Turn out the beasts
and let Christ come in.
A heathen came to an early Christian who
had the reputation of curing diseases. The
Christian said: "You must have all your idols
destroyed." The heathen gave to the Chris
tian the key to bis house, that he might go in
*and destroy the idols. He battered to pieces
all he saw, butstill the man did not get well.
The Christian said to him: "There must be
some idol in your house not yet destroyed."
The heathen confessed that there was one idol
of beaten gold that he could not bear to give
up. After a while when that was destroyed,
in answer to the prayer of the Christian the
sick man got well.
Many a man has awakened in his dying
hour to find his sins all about him. They
clambered up on the right side of the bed,
on the left side, and over the headboard, and
over the footboard, and horibly devoured
Bepent: the votee ce~estial cries, ~5~
Nor longer dare delay :
.The wretch that scorns the mandate dies,
And meets a fiery day.
Again, we need a believing heart. A good
many years ago a weary one went up one of
the hills of Asia Minor, and with t wo lo--s on
his back cried out to all the world, offering
to carry their sins and sor-rows. They pur
sued him. They slapped hint in the face.
They mocked him. V. hen he groaned they
groaned. They shook their fists at him.,
They spit on him. They houndel him as
though he were a wild beast- His healing of
the sick, his sight giving to the blind, his
mercy to the outcast silence I not the roveng
of the world. His prayers and benedictions
were lost in that whirlwin:1 of e-tecratio.,,
Away with him! Away with him!
AhI it was not merely the two pieces of
wood that he carried; it was the transg'res
sions; ot the race, the anguish of the ages, the
wrath of God, the sorrows of hell, the stu
'ndous interests of an unending eternity-.
to wonder his back bent. No wonder tlie
blood started from every pore. No wonder
that he crouched under a torture that made
the sun faint, and the everlasting hills tremt
-.ble, and the dead rush up in their windling
sheets as he cried, '"If it be possible, let this
cup pae-. froma axe.- but tne cup did not
~pass. None to comfort.
-There he hangs! What has that hand done
that it should be thus crushed in the
-palm? It has been healing the lanme and
wiping away tears. What has that foot been
doing that it should be so lacerated: It has
been going about, doing good. Oif what has
the victim been guilty: Guilty of saving a
world. Tell me, ye heavens andI earth. was
there ever such anothier crimninal! Was there
ever such a crime: On that hill of carnage,

Oh. the ransom has been paid. Those
arms of Jesus were stretched out so wide
that when Ho br-ought the-:n together
again they might embrace the world.

of the spring, or the flaming foliage
of the autumn, make one wreath for

of the world could be swung in one gateway.

Oh, that all the harps and trunots antd or

But what were earthly flowers to him who

was going along the streets of New York
with a basket of apples that she had for sale.
A rough sai:or ran against her ai"' upset the
basket. andh stood back expecting to hear her
scold fri...:fully: but she' stooped down and

meanness of what he had done and felt in
his pocket for his money. and insisted that
she should take it alL Though she was black
he called her mother and said: "Forgive

giving spirit to overcome all hardness.
There is no way of conquering men like that
of bestowing upon them your pardon,
whether they will accept it or not.
Again, a right heart is an expoet:nt heart.
It is a poor business to be building castles in
the air. Enjoy what you have now. Don't
spoil vour comfort in the small hous be
cause you expect a larger one. Don t fret
about your income when it is :; or 4 per day
because you expect to have after awhile
;10 per dayor $10.0.'t a year, because you ex
pect it to be :-0,t000 a year. But about heav
enly things, the more we think the better.
Those castles are not in the air, but on the
hills, and we have a deed of them in our posss
sion. I like to see a man all full of heaven.
He talks heaven. He sings heaven. He
prays heaven. He dreams heaven. Some of
us in our sleep have had the good place open
to us. We saw the pinnacles in the sky. We
heard the click of the hoofs of the white
horses on which victors rie. ani the clap
ping of the cymbalsif eternal triumph. And
while in our sleep we were glad that all our
sorrows were over, and l urdens done
with, the throne of God gr-,w i h:ter. whiter
and whiter, till we opened our eyes and saw
that it was only the sun of the earthly morn
ing shining on our pillow. To have a right
heart you need to be till-d with this expec
t-ny. It would make your privations and
annoyances more bearable.
Soie talk of heaven as though it were a
handsome church, where a few favoredi spir
its would come in and sit down on finely
cushioned seats all by themselves and sing
psalms to all et 'rnity. No. no. "I saw a
great multitude that no man could number
standing before the throne. He that talked
with me had a golden reed to measure the
city and it was 1: 0)0 furlongs"-that is, 1,500
miles in circumference. Ah! heaven is not a
little colony at one corner of God's do
minion where a man's entrance depends upon
what kind of clothes he has on his back and
how much money he has in his purse. but a
vast empire. God grant that the light of
that blessed world may shine upon us in our

illne of the Christian is a stiggle. ie is
almost through the voyage. The waves of
temptation toss the soul, but he waits for the

tidies of joy arise in his soul and he sails up

It is a business question. Do you not realize

BUFFALO BILL ABROAD !
A Little Love Afrair-What the Cowboys
Think of It.
The stcecess of "our own' Buffalo Bill-W.
F. Cody-in England is very gratifying to
his thousands of admirers on this side.
There was more truth than many imagined
In his reply to the inquiry:
"What are you doing in England"
"Chiefly paying poker with Duchesses."
The Englih nobility quickly "cottoned
to" Buffalo Bill, because they recognized that
he belonged to a higher order than their own
-Nature s nobility. Despite his wild life he
early managed to acquire an education and
the polish which makes him easy even in
His polish is the bitter fruit, it is said, ef a
young love experience. When a young man
on the plains, wild, woolly and unkempt in
appearance and character, ha fell in love
with a dashing little school teacher. Full of
pluck and faith in himself, he proposed to
her. She laughed at him and he-collapsed.
After a time he braced up, bought some
books, and began to study.
His defeat proved his victory. The girl
was his mascot, and his successes are due to
Magnificent specimens of manhood though
they be "Bill's boys" are not perfection.
Under date: "Buffalo Bill's Wild West Co..
London. Sept. l9, 1'." D. W. Shoemaker
of the Cowboy Band, writes: "Some weeks
ago I was sutfering from great disorder of
the liver and kidneys and general prostration.
I was forced to quit work and take my bed.
I called in a physician, who only afforded
temporary relief. A friend induced me to
take Warner's safe cure, which afforded
almost instant relief, and after taking three
bottles. I find myself in as good health as at
any tame in my life."
Two other members of the Wild West
show. Mawe Beardsley, pon ' express rider.
and Jim Mitchell. a cowboy. add to this
statement of Shoemaker's, that in their long
experience on the plains, from change of
water, climate and mode of life, and severe
.'iding, they became subject to liver and
kidney diseases, and they have found a sure
remedy for these troubles in Warner's safe
cure. Mawe Beardsley says: "I constantly
recommend it to my friends."
Buffalo Bill has pluck end courage and
hard sense, and not only controls all the wild
elements that make up the Wild West show,
but controls himself.
His experience as a scout makes him wary,
discreet and shrewd. He quickly learns the
best way to secure results, and, like a true
man, has no prejudice against anything that
prove; its merits.
Buffalo Bill is so popular in England he
may come home a "Sir William." But if not
be wili probably enjoy himself quite as well,
having secured a fortune ample enough for
all his wants, title or no title.
In the seventeenth and eighteenth
centuries our method of executions was
most brutal, says a writer in the Gen
tIman's Maganne. There was the
long ride of the criminal in an open
cart, with his coffin by his side, either
to Tvburn or to the spot where lie com
mitted the murder. The cart was
stopped under the gallows, the rope
was fastened around the criminal's
neck, the carman gave the horse a lash,
and the poor wretch was left swaying
to and fro, kicking. If lie had friends
they would try to shorten his agony by
hanging on to his legs and beating hit
breast, a shocking sight. But hanging
then was looked upon as a holiday spec
tacle, in which we find the lower class
took great interest, and evinced much
sympathy with the deceased. For in
stance, Claude Duval, the celebrated
h:ghwayman, lay in state at the
"Tangier" tavern in St. Giles in a room
hung with black cloth, the bier cov
ered with escutcheons, and with eight
wax candles burning around. He was
buried by torchlight, and was followed
to Covent Garden Church by a numer
eus train of mourners, mostly women.
Mission, a French writer who visited
England in the reign of William III.,
says: "ie that is hang'd or otherwise
executed first takes care to get himself
shav'd and handsomely drest, either in
mourning or in thme dress of a bride
groom. This done, he sets his friends
at work to get him leave to be bury'd,
and to carry his coffin with him, which
is easily obtain'd. WXhen his suit of
cloaths or night-gown, his gloves, hat,
perriwig, nosegay, coffin, flannel dress
for his corps, and all those things are
bought and prepar'd, the main point is
taken care of-his mind is at peace,
an~d theni he thinks of his conscience.
Generally hie studies a speech, which
he pronounces under the gallows and
gives in writing to the sheriff or the
minister that attends him in his last
moments, desiring that it may be print'
ed. Sometimes the girls dress in
white, with great silk scarves, and car
rv baskets full of flowers and oranges,
scattering these favors all the way they
go. IBut to represent things as they
really are, I must needs own that, if a
pretty many of these p~eop~le dress thus
gayly and go to it with such an air of
indifference, there are many others
that go slovenly enough and with very
dismai phiin'es. I remember one day
I sawi in thme park a handsome girl, very
well dress'd, that was then in mourning
for her father, who had been hang'd
but at month before at Tyburn for false
coina~e. No many countries so many
Air and Exercise.
Pure air is of the greatest import,
ance to the body. The blood wants it,
the tissues demand it and life cannec
go on w'thout it. Pure air oxygenatei
or purities the blood, burns up wasta
ma'tter, allows the heat of the body t4:
be kenmt uo and keeps going all our v.
tal or~gn. Dad air means low vital
ity, retention of waste in the system,
with cosequent disease and early
Ideath. Imupure air is thme cause of all
our~ 4iseases of the respiratory organs,
r tehi as coughxs, colds, influeizas, sorc
thslroats, enlarged or inflamed tonsils.
loss of voice. catarrh, pleurisy, bron'
chmt s, inflammation of the lungs andl
even consumption itself. Be careful
therefore to always breathe pure air;
hive your sitting rooms and your bed
room windows open (lay and night, in
all seasons and in all weathers, abou
two inches. The absence from colds,
coughs, etc., that you will notice ir
yourselves is an experience once gained
will never be forgotten. Recolleci
that you spend a third of your lives it
your bedlrooms, and if you breathe bad
air there it shortens life and causes dis
ease. Always insist on pure arr, and
ibe sure you get the best you can.
(;ur muscles require exercise to de
velop them and to keel) them in proper
condition. 1 reckon that two hours a
da fbdly work or exercise will keep
a person off thme sick list, three hours
daily will put him in fair health, while
four or more will keep) him in good
health. Those whose ]ivesare sedent
ary must walk from six to eight miles a
day; this may be taken in the morning
or'in the evening. It is a good plan to
walk to and from business if possible,
or where t his is impossible to have a
good walk at night after tea, or late
dinner. Tihis causes sound sleep, good
spirits, a hecalthy'. body and a contented
nr.~d. Young ladies are requested to
observe that they must follow this ad
vice just as much as their brothers or
nale friends have to; it will make you
rosy, merry, cheerful and natural.
