I Don't Ask Yon to "(lire Up," lint to
A gentleman moving In the
highest circles of London society
was brought to know tho Lord
Jesus, through a conversation slib
had with a Christian lady. For a
number- of years ho had been a
leader of fashion, nnd was thor
oughly given up to the pleasures
of the world. While- returning
home ono evening, in company
with this lady, ho became afraid
lest she should speak to him about
Ills soul, nnd ask him to give up
tho world's vanities nnd amuse
ments. Astonished at finding that
sho did not directly refer to spirit
ual matters, he opened the subject
himself, and spoko to the following
effect: "How is it that you religious
people ore always trying to rob us
of our pleasures? I enjoy life
thoroughly, and I don't see that
you should take away tho little
pleasures I have." "You arc great
ly mistaken, Mr. ," was the re
ply, "I don't want you to give up
anything I want you to beceive."
"Excubo me," ho said, "I don't
understand you. What do you
mean?" "would rather not say
any more at present. Think on
that word, beceive." On his way
home, tho words rang in his ear,
I don't want you to give up; J want
you to receive." "I don't want
YOU TO GIVE UP; I WANT YOU TO
Try as ho might, he could not
get rid of them. They constantly
came up before him, "Receive,"
"Give up," "Receive," "Give up."
At length he became thoroughly
wretched, and began saj'ing to
himself, "I should not be surprised
if these Christians had the best of
it after all; perhaps they have
something I don't possess What
are the things I could not give up ?
The pleasures of the world are very
unsatisfying. What could she
mean? 'Receive Xot give up.1
What did sho wish me to receive?"
At last ho resolved he would seek
an interview with the lady, and
tell her how unhappy he had been
since their conversation. Meeting
her on the street one day, ho asked
what she meant by telling him to
think on the word "receive." "Your
whole life, Mr. , has been one
long attempt to satisfy your soul
with things that cannot satisfy it.
I want you to receive somcting that
will accomplish that object; and
When you have that, you will be
glad to give up the husks which you
have been feeding on." She then
explained to him that Christ alone
could give rest and peace to the
heart of man; that when ono re
ceived Christ by simple faith, the
pleasures nnd amusements of "tho
world would soon be given up. Tho
conversation was blessed to his
conversion, and since then ho has
been a most faithful and devoted
preacher of tho gospel.
Reader, have " you been under
tho impression that God requires
of you to give up the world, its
pleasures or amusements, before
He will save you? Many say to
people, "Give this, that, and tho
other thing, and God will forgive
your sins." This is not Uie gospel.
God nowwhere in His Word says
to unsaved men, "Give up driking,
give np swearing, give up your bad
habits or companions, and I will
save you." "Give," "Give up," is
the wrong end of the thread. You
may try to give up your love
of the world, but you cannot till
somo other object takes its place in
your heart's affections. Ask that
little boy to give you thoso unripe
apples. Ho does not wish to do so.
Tell him that they will make him
sick. Ho docs not think ho; nt any
rate he is prepared to run tho risk.
Jle likes them, and that is tho rea
son he won't give them up. Go
into that fruit-shop and buy a doz
en of ripe peaches. "Johnnie, here
are somo ripo peaches for you."
See how lie smiles for you." See
how lie smiles. He eats one, and
then emptying his pocket of tho
green apples, ho gives them to you,
BUCAU8K UK UAH GOT HOMKT1IING
liKTTEJt. So with you, dear un
saved reader. God says to you
now, "Sinner, I lovo you. I so loved
you us to give up Christ to die on
tho cross for you. Receive Him
Into your heart. Accept my love
gift to you, und then you will give
up that which dlsploasos Me."
Header, no longer try to "glyo
up" this, that, or tho other thing in
order to be saved, Ceuso ulPsuolt
foolish efforts, "As many as f3
cetved Jffm, to thorn gavo Ho pow
er boeoino tho sons of God, nven to
them Unit believe on His name,"
(John 1. 12.) Stretch out tho snlva
tlon which Christ now presses on
you. Accept of eternal life ns tho
gift of God, through believing on
Him who boro tho wrath and tho
curse for thee.

It has been said that thero ncvor
has been a clear case of sun-stroke
in a harvest-field where there was

as much to blame for tho prostra

Tho history of sun-strokes shows
that comparatively few cases occur
which may not bo connected di
rectly or indirectly with tho drink

erally chargeable to indigestion.

There is no more erroneous idea
extant than that cold water reduces
tho temperature of tho body. It
may reduce tho temperature of the
stomach temporarily, but nature
hastens to heat it up by sending to
this orgnn an extrti supply of blood.
When this supply is too great to bo
controlled, or when tho nerves aro
benumed from the cold, the mem
branes of tho stomnch become con
gested, which is tho flrst step to
ward stomatitis, cholera morbus
and other dangerous disorders.
These are tho facts which enter
into tho problem of how to keep
cool. To solve it they must each
bo given due 'consideration. It
imiy appear like a very silly thing
to resort to hot water when you
want to cool off quickly, but it is in

Lack of water is one reason why
cows shrink In their yield of milk

is once allowed to fall off no amount
of good feeding will over quite re
store it to what it should havo
been. Worst of all, the cow poorly
watered loses flesh, and will not bo
so good another season.

Columbus, O., Aug. 2o, 1S80.
The time of Conventions is rapid
ly drawing to a close, and soon will
commence the more serious work
of trying to "get there Eli." The
Democrats put up a strong ticket
at Toledo, and one thnt should win.
With John McBrido at tho head of
the ticket a practical working
man and not a demogogue the
toilers of tho State should rally to
the support of that tried old friend
of labor, tho Democratic party.
Of course tho Republican party is
a friend to the workingnien on
paper, as It is the friend of the
soldier, and will bo told when it
comes to making their laws
for the laboring classes something
similar to what John Sherman
said in regard to pension laws,
that "party platform did not gov
ern his vote." Their platforms are
written for buncombe, with no in
tention of carying them out.
The Republican convention met
to-day, resoluted and nominated
according to cut-and-dried pro
gram. You will have full account
from other sources. The ticket,
outside of General Robinson, lias
not a single element of strength,
and he is not near as popular as he
was two years ago.
Tho latest Republican dodge is
the non-partisan temperance com
mittee, which should be termed
"The committee to induce temper
ance people to believe the Republi
can party over intends to do any
thing practical on tho liquor ques
tion." It is headed by playad-out
Republican dodgers, and the boodle
is sufficient for all practical pur
poses. Ono of the most interesting cases
that has come before the Executive
for some time is tho case of Bow
ling, of Licking county, who was
sentenced to hang next Friday.
To say the least, thero is strong
grounds for doubting the justice of
tho sentence. It is said a majority
of Licking county people believe
lie i.i not guilty. Governor Foraker
on Tuesday reprieved Bowling for
ninety days, and it is hoped if he is
innocent ho will be able to prove
it by that time. It is generally
supposed that when a prosecuting
attorney secures a conviction Ills
interest in the matter ends, but tho
Licking county prosecutor is de
termined not to lot up on Bowling
until ho is hung. When Governor
Foraker interviewed Bowling on
Tuesday, tho prosecutor appeared
in the role of persecutor, and by
his offensive manner got Bowling
so worked up that ho did not make
a vory good Impression on tho Gov
ernor. His course, if followed out,
will cause tho few who do not al
ready do so to believe Bowling is an
Noxt week Is Stato fair week,
tho fair will bo held on tho new
grounds for tho first time. Tin
grounds aro beautiful and llnoly
situated, the only draw-back is tho
lack of sluulo trees, but time will
overcome that objection, Thero is
ouo good thing, and thai is thut
passage to and from the grounds
will bo by railroad cars instead of
tho street cars. By this the great
nuisance of slow time and poor ac
commodation of Columbus street
cars will ho obviated.
The Democratic county ticket Is
a very satisfactory one, and I pre
