TF0 HAS A GARDEN TO PLANT?
Who has a garden to plant? I know:
Each liltle boy and girl; and so
Each little boy and girl must get
Good seeds to sow, good grafts to set;
And, when they have set and sowed, take
To trim them and weed them till they shall
Such good and beautiful fruit that they
Will be glad for all they have done some
Each little garden is each little heart,
Where the good deeds with the bad will
The Future of Palestine.
New York Evangelist.
Among those who watch "the
signs of the times" from various
view -points, the religious future of
Palestine naturally becomes a matter
of Increasing interest. Will it be
Mohammedan or Christian? If Chris
tian, will it be Protestant, Greek, or
Roman Catholic? A glance at its
present condition may prove inter
esting, though failing to warrant any
reply to these questions. While Pro
testantism by the agency of the Pres
byterian college at Beirut, and printing-presses
nt the same place sending
over the country millions of pages of
Christian literature and the entire
Scriptures in the Arabic language,and
of Presbyterian schools of various
grades, and by other and perhaps
minor means, is unquestionably do
ing an efficient work for the religious
and social regeneration of Palestine
by the overthrow of Mohammedan
ism, other and opposing forces are
tach contending, . under a religious
banner, for Palestine as a prize. The
Latin or Roman Catholic Church,
with her usual persistency, is antag
onizing all other Christian agencies,
and establishing schools, pilgrim
houses, and convents throughout the
country, and her missionaries boast
that within less than a score of years
Protestantism will have little or no
foothold in Palestine. The Greek
Church, sure of a liberal financial
support from the Russian govern
ment, with a zeal which Protestants
can but take knowledge of, erects its
churches and affiliated institutions,
and is evidently making preparation
for a permanent dominating infiu
stay in Palestine, and, it possible, a
ence over its affairs.
And it would be hardly prudent to
positively deny that the Greek
Church may succeed with Russian
influence, and perhaps a Russian
army behind her or before her and,
if need be, both behind and before.
But Mohammedanism will yield to
neither of these struggling and an
tagonized influences without sharp
and desperate efforts to hold possess
ion of what are also its sacred land
and city. It sees its danger, and wil
toe prompt to resist, either by peace
able or by forcible means, the loss o
both or of either. Just now it is re
ported to be busily engaged in estab
lishing its schools all over Palestine
and very recently it manifested wis
dom enough to allow itself to be
taught by its opponents, and actually
established a hospital! Protestant
Christianity is badly deluded if it
really supposes, us it seems to do,
that it is to redeem Palestine from
her spiritual bondage, without larger
forces and more liberal supplies for
the warfare than she has hitherto
The oldest and smallest sect in the
world is to be found in the small
city of Nablus, in North Palestine.
The population numbers about 12,000,
all of whom are Mohammedans, with
the exception of this religious com
munitynow numbering about 150
souls wnicn has ueneu the ravages
of war, poverty and oppression for
r.itOO years. These Samaritans have
lived on through the centuries, and
their unity has never been broken.
Good Advice in a Nutshell.
There are four organs in the human body
which are vital in their functions and deli
cate in their structure, and which give us an
immense amount of trouble. These are the
Heart, Stomach, Kidneys and Liver. If thev
give us trouble it is because we neglect or
abuse them, aud of course we must take the
consequences. The diseases of these orgaus
are very numerous and often cancerous,
Luckily we now have a remedy which has
proved just the thing for this class of dis
eases. It is Fe-ru-na, a purely vegetable
compound, that strikes right at the root of
the whole trouble, lnis preparation was
used by Dr. Hartman most successfully iu
his general practice for years helore it was
placed before the general public; and it was
iH remarkable success in his private prac
lice that led him to place it before the pub
lie for the benefit of mankind everywhere
As a Ionic it is unexcelled, building up th

mental or physical. As a remedy for Lun
I ronhies, such as (. onsumptmn, it has ac

The South and Nation.
Under tho above head the Nash
ville Banner talks some good hard
sense as follows :
"Already a number of Southern
newspapers are beginning to say
that it would not be expedient to
urge the election of a Southern Demo
crat as Speaker of the next House.
This is all fol-de-rol and nonsense.
It is expedient to elect a Southern
Democrat Speaker if he be competent
for the position. We get tired of this
everlasting obtrusion of a sectional
bar between Southern men and
National honors. It is high time to
put an end to this apologetic posing of
tho South. If the South continues to
give a tacit endorsement of the idea
that her sons must still do pennance
by refraining from any political com
petition that might prejudice the
North and embarrass the party, the
ban will never be removed by the
North. The solid South, without
which the Democracy of the North
would bo powerless, has a right to
demand political recognition in Con
gress and in the national Democratic
convention. It may not be best pol-
cy in a given instance to urge a man
for a place from any section or State,
but if a man from the Suth be not
pressed for any position, let the rea
son not be given that ilit will em
barrass the party" to present his
name because he is from the South.

A Bap at Judges and Lawyers.
The Gallatin Examiner thus de
livers a well deserved rebuke upon
tho manner in which many of our
courts are conducted :
"There is a general laxity upon
the bench in Tennessee in its failure)
to enforce proper order in court und
too free a swing allowed to attorneys
in tue examination of witnesses.
They are too often permitted, without
the least correction, to brow-beat and
confuse and entangle honest witness
es, who are only striving to tell tho
whole truth, and that browsbeating
is often done in the interest of clients
who are rascally felons. Good, staid
citizens, unaccustomed to appearance
before a court, become embarrassed
under the gaze of a crowd, and the
sharp and often insulting questions of
a lawyer, bent on breaking the force
of- his truthful testimony, commit
blunders which are seized upon and
tortured into direct Impeachment of
the honest witness. Judges upon the
bench become parties to such out
rages upon the rights of witnesses,
we suppose out of 'courtesy to the
rofession,' but they are themselves
unworthy of their high position. The
court house should in fact be the
temple of justice and not of wrong
doingnot as it is, yearly losing the
respect and confidence of the people."

POINTS OF EXCELLENCE IN THE
OUR TIRES are the heaviest of any wagon in the market.
There is more iron and better iron work on the "Tennessee" than on any other
wagon offered to the trade.
Our Wood-work is thoroughly saturated in boiling linseed oil.
We do not use any cheap or mineral jiaints ; onr work is all painted with the best
brands of paint, ground by ourselves in pure linseed oil, and finished with the best brands
of English varnish.
Our spokes are driven by machinery in hot glue.
Onr tire-furnace gives uniform heat, and our tire cooler nuiform shrinkage, which se
cures uniform dish in all wheels.
Our timber is all AIR DRY and thoroughly seasoned. The axles are made of best
hickory; the tongues, bolsters, hounds, and spokes of best white oak ; the bubs of New
York black birch, "the best iu the world," and our beds of clear Tennessee yellow poplar.
Our tongues and front hounds are so constructed that but little weight rests upon the
necks of the team.
The hubs are steamed when driving the spokes, which shrinks them to the spokes,
making the spokes as firm as if they grew there.
The bolsters are plated their entire length, and the king bolts are countersunk, which
prevents them from wearing the bottom of the beds.
Our BOX STRAPS are turned over the sides so as to give additional strength to the
beds, all of which nre plated with beveled iron.
We use ROUND EDGE TIRE on our wheels for tho protection of felloes and paint ;
also heavy WROUGHT IRON sand bands on wheels.
We buy them by the car load Mid sell them for Small Profit.
Oldest People on the Eaith.
Mr. Stanley found them in the very
heart of the great Bark Continents
race of queer little people not more
than four feet high. They are th
oldest race known, and from earliest
times they have never gone away
from their homes little stay-at
homes we might very well call them
Near a place called Avetiko, on th
turi River, his men found the first
air of these tiny people squatting i
the midst of a wild Eden, and peel
ng plantains. The men carried them
to the explorer "in the same spirit,"
le says, "as they would have brought
me a big hawk moth lor inspection.
s they stood trembling before me,
named tho man Adam, and the
miniature woman Eve. Poor little
things ! Their faces said clearly as
they looked at one and the other of
us, 'Where have these big people
come from? Will they eat us?'
There were some nervous twitchings
about the angles of the nose, and
quick uplifting of the eyelids, and
swift, searching looks to know what
fate was in store for them." You
may be quite sure fears of the little
couple were quite groundless, and
they met with kindness of treatment
from Stanley, who describes them as
follows : "Little Adam was four feet
high, and Eve a little less. He may
have weighed about eighty-five
pounds; the color of his body was
that of a half-baked brick, and, as
far as intelligence was concerned, he
was certainly superior to any black
man in our camp. The mysteries of
woodcraft, for instant, he kuew bet
ter than any of us; he kuew
what wild fruits were whole
some, and whatfurgi were poisonous.
He could have given us valuable les
sons how to iind'our way through
the forest. The little man talked
very briskly bysigns,and gave proofs
of his quick understanding." After
this, Stanley and his men passed
through about one hundred villages
inhabited by this ancient and tiny
folk, who have been nMo to hold their
own bind for over tiftv centuries.

The three reasons which a good

said that, in the first place he read
his sernion; in the second he did
not read it well; and in the third
place it was not worth reading.

no gapes or cholera. Their plumage
is fine, and they produce an abun
