A CUNNING ELEPHANT.
Who Stole Fruit at Night and Locked H im
self in the Stable in the Morning.
The English Commissioner at Shwey
ghua, in Burmaih, recently had a young
elephant given him by a native gentle
man. The youngster was kept in a stable
in the garden and was locked in at night
by a door having a sliding wooden bar
running in iron staples. Now, adjoining
the stables was the Commissioner's
garden, in which he took great pride.
The garden, full of fruit, was well laid
out, and had the walks paved with brick.
Shortly after the young elephant's
arrival the garden was found to be system
atically plundered of its fruit. No traces
were left by the thief, nor were there
any footprints to indicate how an entrance
could have been effected. The Com
missioner issued orders for watchmen to
surround the place outside at intervals
and lie in wait for the thief, and in case
of discovery permission was given them
to shoot the robbers, as a warning to
other evil-minded persons, On the
morning after this order was issued, the
watchman reported that no one had
passed their cordon.
But the head gardener told a different
story. The damage done had exceeded
that of the night previous, much: fruit
having been broken off and left lying on
theground. The Commissioner was now
thoroughly exasperated and admitted
native watchmen into his cherished
garden. They recieved strict injunctions
to take the offenders alive and to awaken
him at once and report who the daring
thieves were. At a late hour in the night
the Commissioner was awaken by his
Madrassee butler, who informed him
with much gravity that the thief was dis
covered, but that they had not captured
him, desiring the Bhayahhimself to come
and see him. The Commissioner quickly
donned his garments and went out to the
At the gate he met a watchman, who
asked him to follow him as noiselessly
as he could. They proceeded down one
of the paths until the watchman stopped
and whispered, "Look thaken." There
was master elphant regaling himself on
the Commissioner's choice fruit, selecting
the best and throwing down any he did
not fancy. The Commissioner decided
to wait and follow the youngster when
he had satiated himself and see how
he had managed to break out of his
stable. After a while the elephant
thought it time to retire and returned
towards his stable.
The young elephant entered the stable
and pulled the door to with his trunk;
then the side of the roof was seen to be
lifted up and the elephant's head appear
ed just above the door. Out came the
trunk and reached down to the heavy
bar, caught hold of it and pushed it into
its place through the iron staples; then
the roof was lowered and all was in good
order. On examination of the interior
of the stable in the morning it was found
that the animal had untied the bamboo
strips with which the rafters were fast
ened to the plates in the simple Burmese
architectural style. The roof was thus
easily lifted allowing the animal to project
his trunk and reach the outer bar. His
"boyish" mouth had watered for a taste
of stolen fruit, so sweet to youth. Then
he thought of lifting the rafters, untying
the fastenings and so reaching the bar he
had noticed was on the outside of the

What the Great Papers of the Country Say
About the Work of the Convention.
New York Herald: "It is as good a plat
form as was ever adopted by convention,
clear, straighforward, without quib'i or
double dealing. What it declares concern
ing promises redeemed is true; what it
promises the ticket guarantees. Now let
us see what the Republicans can agree to
at Chicago. If they speak of the past, they
must confess to pledges broken by them.
If they speak of the future, this Democrntic
platform warns them to' greater honesty
than they have practiced in recent years."
New York World- "The Convention ac
cepted the issue squarely, and to clinch its
action adopted a separate resolution en
dorsing and recommending the early pas
sage of the Mills bill. The party, there.
fore, stands committed thoroughly to its
candidate and its resolutions to tariff re
form, not only in the abstract, in the con
New York Times: "The platform is
notable and creditable in almost every
thing that it contains. It is still more
notable and utterly discreditable for its de
liberate omission of any endorsement of
civil service reform. The platform, as it
stands after the additions rpade to it by the
resolutions offered in the Convention, is
dignified, temperate and candid. The as
sertions it contains as to what the Demo
cratic party in possession of the executive
branches of the Government and of the
popular House of Congress has accom

expect that it would be. that in those mat

Administration has not had the icordial
support of the representatiues of the party
Chicago Morning News (Independent):
"Necessity and sentiment were the parents
of the Democratic ticket completed by the
nomination of Allen G. Thurman for Vice
Presidency at St. Louis yesterday. Events
made Cleveland the nominee nt its head as
they have steadily advanced him from the
Mayoralty of Buffalo to his present high
office. It is a singular piece of good for.
tune for the Democracy that couples the
name of its most sentimental ideal with
that of its man of destiny on the ticket.
About the political wisdom of nominating
Thurman for the Vice Presidency opinions
may differ. His age is one thing that can
be urged against him. But Thurman s
mind is still as strong, his heart is still as
right and his courage and conviction as
true and as fearless as ever. His name
brings to the ticket a popularity with the
people throughout the Union that none
other could. For this he was nominated."
Cincinnati Enquirer: "The work of the
Democratic Convention is ended, and it
leaves nothing to regret. The Democratic
party goes once more before the people
with a declaration whose tone is proud and
confident. It is a battle-cry. It has noth
ing to excuse, nothing to palliate. It chal
lenges the most careful scrutirny of its
stewardship for the past three years, and
dwells with just pride upon the high ex
cellence which marks it."
Boston Herald (Independent): "The
Democratic Concention as a whole has met
public expectation with regard to ii. They
have pursued a politic course in all their
actions. They have not taken an extreme
step in it. They have acted exactly as if
they meant to omit nothing in the wa~y of
precaution that should aid them to victory.

they will be wise."

WAVING A FLAMING CROSS.
DR. TALMAGE'S SUNDAY SERMON AT
THE CROWDED TARERNACLE.
He Calls Upon the Unbelieving to Take
Up the Cross----The Requireieuts of a
Rev. Dr. Talmage preached Sunday
morning upon "The Assassination."
He took his text from Luke, xiv., 27:
"Whosoever does not bear his cross
and come after Me cannot be My dis
ciple." After portraying Christ's death
on the cross in his peculiarly graphic
manner, Dr. Talmage said:
"Oh! my soul, He is dead. Can you
tell why? Was He a fanatic dying for a
principle that did not amount toanythig?
Was He a man infatuated? No; to save
your soul from sin, and mine, and make
eternal life possible, he died. There had
to be a substitute for sin. Who shall it
be? 'Let it be me! said Christ, 'let it
be me.' You understand the meaning
of that word, substitution? You were
drafted for the last war; some one took
your place, marched your march, suffered
your wounds, and died at Gettysburg.
Christ comes to us while we are fighting
our battle with sin and death and hell,
and He is our substitute. He marches
our march, fights our battle, suffers our
wounds, and dies our death. Substitution!
"How do you feel in regard to that
scene described in the text, and in the
region around about the text? Are your
sympathies aroused? Or are you so
dead in sin, and so abandoned by reason
of your tranrgression that you can look
upon all that tearless and unmoved.
No, no; thousands of people are here this
morning who can say in the depths of
their soul: 'No, no, no, if Jesus endured
that, and all that for me, I ought to love
Him. I must love Him, I will love Him,
I do love Him. Here, lord, I give my
self to Thee; 'tis all that I can do.'
"But how are you going to test your
love, and test your earnestness? My text
gives a test. It says that while Christ
carried a cross for you, you must be
willingtocarryacross for Christ. 'Well,'
you say, 'I never could understand that.
There are no crosses to be carried in this
laud; those persecutions have passed, and
in all the land there is no one to be
crucified, and yet in the pulpit and in
the prayer meetings you all keep talking
about carrying a cross. What do you
mean, sir?' I mean this: that is a cross
which Christ calls you to do which is un
pleasant and hard.
"Here is a man whose cross will be to
announce among his business associates
to-morrow morning on 'charge that he
has beguL a new life; that while he wants
to be faithi'l in his worldly duties, he is
living for another world, and he ought to
advise all those who are his associates, so
far as he can influence them, to begin
with him the Christian life. Could you
do that, my brother? 'Oh! no,' you say,
'not just that. Ithink religionis religion,
and business is business, and it would
be impossible for me to recommend the
Christion religion in places of worldly
business.' Just as I feared. There is a
cross offered you, and you cannot carry
it. Christ lifted a mountain for you;you
cannot lift an ounce for Him.
"There is some one whose cross will be
to present religon in the home circle.
Would you dare to kneel down and pray
if your brother and sister were looking
at you? Could you ask a blessing at the
tea table? Could you take the Bible and
gather your family around you, and read
of Christ and Heaven and yourinmmortal
soul? Could you then kneel and pray
for a blessing on your household? 'Oh!'
you say, 'not exactly that. I couldn't
'quite do that, because I have a very quick
temper, and if I professed religion and
tried to talk religion in my household,
and after that I should lose my temper
they would scoff at me and say: "You
are a pretty Christian!"' So you are
cowed down and their scarcasm keeps
you outof Heaven and away from Christ,
when under God you ought to take your
whole family into the kingdom. Christ
lifted a mountain, lifted a world for you;
you cannot lift an ounce for him. I see
how it is; you want to be favorable to
religion; you want to support Christian
institutions; you like to be associated
with those who love Jesus Christ; but as
to taking a positive step on this subject
you cannot-you cannot, and my text,
like a gate of a hundred bolts, bars you
away from peace on earth and glory in
"There are hundreds of men and
women here brave enough in other things
in life who simply for the lack of manli
ness and womanliness stay away from
God. They dare not say: 'Forever, Lord
Jesus, I take Thee.' I[ tell you these
things this morning because, my dear
friends, I want to show you how light
the cross is that we have to carry com
pared with that which Christ carried for
us. You have not had the flesh torn off
for Christ's sake in carrying your cross.
He fainted dead away under His cross.
You have not carried the cross until it
fetched the blood. Under His there was
a pool of carnage that plashed the horses'
fetlocks. You have friends to sympathize
with you in carrying the cross; Christ
trod the winepress of God's wrath alone,
"There has some one come here to-day
whom you have not observed. He did
not come through the front door; He did
not come down any of these aisles; yet I
know He is here. He is from the East,
the far East. He comes with blistered
foot, and broken heart, and cheeks red
not with health, but with blood from the
temples. I take hold of His coat and I
say: 'It (.oes not seem to fit Thee.'
'No,' He says, 'it ia not mine; it is bor
rowed; it does not belong to me now.
For my vesture did they cast lots.' And
I say to Him: 'Thine eyes are red as
though from loss of sleep.' He says;
'Yes, the Son of man had not where to
lay His head.' And I touch the log on
His back andlIsay; 'Why carriest Thou
this?' Ahi!' He says; 'That is a cross
I carry tor thee and for the sins of the
whole world. Thatis a croes. Fall into
line, march on with me in this procession,
take your smaller crosses and your
lighter burdens, and join me in this
march to Heaven.' And we join that
procession with our smaller crosses and
our lighter burdens, and Christ looks
back and He sees some are halting be
cause they cannot endure the shame or
bear the burden, and with a voice which
has in it majesty and omnipotence. He
cries until all the earth trembles: Who
soever doth not bear his cross and come
after Me cannot be My disciple.'
"Oh! my bretheren, my sisters-for I
do not speak professionally, I speak as a
brother would speak to a brother or
sister-my brother, can you not bear a
ross if at last you can wear a crown?
Come now, let us divide off. Who is on
the Lord's side? Who is ready to turn
his back upon the Lamb of God that
taketh away the :in of the world?
"A Rhoman emperor said to a Greek
architect: 'You build me a coliseum, a
grand coliseum, and if it suits me I will1
crown you in the presence of all the
people, and I will make a great day of
festival on your account.' The Greek
architect did his work, did it magnificent
ly, planned the bildingr and and lookedr
after its construction. The building was
done. The day for opening arrived.
In the coliseum were the Emperor and
the Greek architect. The Empror rose
amid the plaudits of a vast assembly,
and said; 'We have gathered here
to-day to open this coliseum, and to
honor the Greek architect. It is a great
day for the Roman Empire. Let this
building be prosperous, and let honor
be put upon the Greek architect. Oh,
we must have a festival to-day. Bring
out those Christians and let us have
them put to death at the mouth of the
lions.' The Christians were put into the
centre of the amphitheatre. It was to
be a great celebration in their destruc
"Then the lions, hungry and three
fourths starved, were let our from their
dens in the side of the amphitheatre, and
they came forth with mighty spring to
destroy and rend the Christians, and all
the galleries shouted: 'Huzza, huzza!
Long live the Emperor!' Then the Greek
architect arose in one of the galleries and
shouted untilin the vast assemblage all
heard him: 'I too am a Christian!' and
they seized him in their fury, and flung
him to the wild beasts, until his body,
bleeding and dead, was tumbled over and
over again in the dust of the amphi

Could Christ, have said: 'I am a Christ

Would you have had the ten thousandth
part of the enthusiasm and the courage
of the Greek architect? Nay, I ask you
another question: Would you in an as
semblage where they are nu ly all Christ
ians-in an assemblage, a vast multitude
of whom love Christ and are willing to
live, and if need be, to die for Him
would you dare to say: 'I am a Chiist

you say in the presence of the friends of
Christ, as much as the Greek architect
said in the presence of the enemies of
Christ? Oh? Are there not multitudes
here this morning who are ready to say:
'Let the world look on, let all the gal

on, I take Christ this day. Come ap

come life or death, Christ now, Christ
"Are you for Christ, are you against
Him? The destinies of eternity tremble
in the balance. It seems as if the last

"When the Scottish chieftains wanted
to raise an army they would make a
wooden cross, and then set it on fire, and
carry it with other crosses they had
through the mountains, through the
highlands and among the people, and
as they waved the cross the people would
gather to the standard and fight for
Scotland. So to-day I come out with
the cross of the Son of God. It is a
flaming cross-flaming with suffering,
flaming with triumph, flaming with glory.
I carry it out among all the people.
Who will be on the Lord's side? Who
will gather to the standard of Emmanuel?
A cross, a cross, a cross! 'Whosoever
doth not bear his cross and come after

AN EGG-SHELL BOAT.
Capt. Andrews to Tempt the Atlantic Billows
in a Fifteen-foot Dory.
Bosrox, June 5.-Capt. William A.
Andrews, of Cambridge. who crossed with
his brother ten years ago, will make another
attempt June 18 to cross the Atlantic in a
small boat. Andrews will go alone this
time. The Nautilus sailed from South
Boston June 8, 1878, and arrived safely at
the Lizard, England, forty-five days later.
The Nautilus was a dory, nineteen feet in
length over all, fifteen feet on the bottom,
six feet seven inches in width, and twc
feet inches deep. The Dark Secret, as the
new craft is called, is a kneel boat, fifteen
feet over all, twelve feet on the keel, tive
feet wide and two feet deep. She is built
of cedar five-eighths of an inch in thickness.
She will have air-tight bulkheads and a
keel of lead weighing 2.50 pounds. Hc!
cabin will be about six feet long and about
three and one half feet from floor to ceil*
ing. The stores which Andrews proposes
to carry will last at least seventy-five days.
Captain Andrews is a tall, well-built
man, forty-five years of age, a native of
Manchester-by-the-Sea. He served four
years as color-sergeant during the civil war.
He expects it will take about fifty days to
reach Queenstown. He will be lashed to
the boat during the entire voyage.

SHE HAD TRIED EVERYTHING
CLOVER Borrow, Sullivan County, Tenn.,
June ,1887- Blood Bain Co., Atlanta, Ga.:
Sir: - I have been thinking of writing to you
for some time to let you know of the wonder
lul cure your B. B. B. has affected on myself
and daughter. She, a girl of 16 years, was
taken with a very sore leg below the knee. I
called on the very best doctors that the coun
try could afford, and they tended on her for
four years to no purpose. Her leg got worse
every year. I used about 30 bottles of other
medicine to no purpose. The doctors said the
only remedy left was amputation. That we
all was opposed to. I was in Knoxville the 8th
of January,1886, and while buying a bill of
drugs called for a good blood purifier, and
Messrs. Sanford, Chamberiand & Co., recom
mended the B. B. B. I purchased one-half
dozen bottles, and to my utter surprise after
using three or four bottles my girl's leg was
entirely healed. I also had a very ugly run
ning sore tn the calf of my leg and one bottle
cured it, after having tried all other remedies.
I wish you n uch success, and I do hope that
all suffering humanity may hear and believe
in the only true blood purifier. I have tried
three or four other purifiers, but the B. B. B.
's the only one that ever did me or mine any
good. You can use my name if you wish. I
am well known in thisand Washington county,
also all over Virginia. B. S. ELsox.
BLOOD TAINT FROM BIRTH.
BoONYvTLLE, IND., January 25, 1887.
I shall ever praise the day when you gentle
men were born and shall bless the day that
your medicine was known to me. I had blood
poison from birth, and so much so that all the
doctors of my town said I would be crippled
for life. They said I would loose my lower
limb. I could not stand in my class to recite
my lessons, and eleven bottles of your Balm
cured me sound and well. You can use my
name as you see fit. In my case, there were
knots on my shinbones as large as a hen's egg.

A GOOD EXPERIMENT.
MRRTTA, Miss., July 2, 1887.
For a number of years I have suffered un
told agony from the effects of blood poison. I
had my case treated by several prominent phy
sicians, but received but little, if any rehef. I
resorted to all sorts of patentmedicines, spend
ing a large amount of money, but yet getting
no better. My attention was attracted by the
cures said to have been affected by B. B. B.,
and I commenced taking it merely as an ex
periment, having but little faith in the results.
To my utter surprise I soon commenced to Im
prove, and deem myself to-day a well and
hearty person-all owing to the excellent qua
lities of B. B. B. I cannot commend itto highly
to those suffering from blood poison.

AFTER TWENTY YEARS.
BALTIMORE, April 20,1887.-For over twenty
years I have been troubled with ulceratg
bowels and bleeding piles, and grew very wess
and thin from constant loss of blood. I halt
used four bottles of B. B. B., and have gaine4
35 pounds in weight, and feel better in generai
health than I have for ten years. I recommend
your B. B. B. as the best medicine I have ever
used, and owe my improvement to the use of
Botanic Blood Balm.
