In those days the Czar chose his wife

THE BRIDAL VEI .
It may be of interest to the autumn
bride to know that the bridal veil is of
8sestern origin, being a relic of the
bridal canopy held over the heads of
the bride and bridegroom. Among the
Anglo-Saxons a similar custom existed,
but if the bride was a widow it was
dispensed with. According to Sarumn
usage, a fine linen eloth was laid upon
the heads of the bride and bridegroom,
and was not removed until the bene
diction had been said. The old Bri
tish custom was to use nature's yell
unadorned-that is, the long hair of
the bride, which was so worn by all
brides, royal, noble and simple.

the young man."--I Kings vi., 17.
One morning in Dothan a young theq
logloal student was soared by flnding himself
and Elleha the prophet, upon whom he
waited, surrounded by a whole army of
enemies. But venerable Elisha was not
scared at all because he saw the mountains
full of defense for him in chariots made of
fre, drawn by horses of fire--a supernatural
appearance that could not be seen with the
natural eye. So the old minister prayed
that the young minister might see them aiso

also saw the fiery prooetston, looking some
what. I suppose, like the Adiroadacks or the
Alleghanies in autumnal resplendence.
Many young men, standing among the
most tremendous realities, have their eyes
half shut or entirely closed. May God grant
that my sermon may open wide your eyes to
your safety, your opportunity and your des
A mighty defense for a young man is a
good home. Some of my hearers look back
with tender satisfaction to their early home.
It may have Leen rude and rustic, hidden
among the hills, and architect or upholsterer
never planned or adorned it. But all the
fresco on princely walls never looked so en

tractive as the plain brook that ran in front
of the old farmhouse and sang under the
weeping willows. No barred gateway
adorned with statue of bronze and
swung open by obsequious porter in
lull dress has half the glory of the old
swing gate. Many of you have a second
dwelling place-your adopted home-that
also is sacred forever. There you built the'
first family altar. There your children were
born. All those treed you planted. That
room is solemn because once in it, over the
hot pillow, flapped the wing of death. Un
der that roof you expect when your work is
done to lie down and die. You try with
many words to tell the excellency of the
place, but you fall. There is only one word
in the language that can describe your
meaning. It is home.
Now, I declare it, that young man is com
paratively safe who goes out into the world
with a charm like this upon him. The mem
ory of parental solicitude, watching, plan.

and unpresuming pleasures of which I
have spoken may be suspected to be
on the broad road to ruin. Absa

know his history of sin and his death of
shame. If you seem unnecessarily isolated
from your kindred and former associates is
there not some room that you can call your
own? Into it gather books and pictures and
a harp. Have a portrait over the mantel.
Make ungodly mirth stand back from the
threshold. Consecrate some spot with the
knee of prayer. By the memory of other
days, a father's counsel, and a mother's lovo,
and a sister's confidence, call it home.
Another defense for a young man is indus
trious habits. Many young men In starting
upon 'fe in this age expect to make their
bwy through the world by the use of their
wits rather than the toil of their hands. A
boy now goes to the city and falls twice be.

Some office rented at $1000 a year, he is
waiting for the bank to declarq its dividend,
or goes into the market expecting before
night to be made rich by the rushing up of
the stooks. But luck seemed so dull he re
solved on some other tack. Perhaps he
borrowed from his employer's money drawer
and forgets to put it back, or for merely the
purpose of improving his penmanship makes
a copy plate of a merchant's signature.
Never mind All is right In trade. In some
dark night there may come In his dreams
a vision of the penitentiary, but it
soon vanishes. In a short time he will be
ready to retire from the busy world, and
amid his flocks and herds cultivate the do
mestlo virtues. Then those young men who
once were his schoolmates and knew no bet
ter than to engage in honest work will come
with their ox teams to draw him logs and
with their hard hands to help heave up his
eastle. This is no fancy picture. It is
everyday life. I should not wonder if there
were some rotten beams in that beautiful
palace. I should not wonder If dire slckness
should smite through the young man, or if
God should pour into his cup of life a
draft that would thrill him with unbearable
agony; if his children should become to him
a living curse, making his home a pest and a
disgrace. I should not wonder if he goes to
a miserable grave andl beyond it into the
gnashing of teeth. The way of the ungodly

genuine success except through toll either
of head or hand. At the battle of Crecy in
1846 the Prince of Wales, finading himself
heaylly pressed by the enemy, sent word to
his father for help. The father, watohing
the battle from a windmill, and seeing his
son was not wounded and could gaanthe
day it he would, sent word: "No, I will not
come. Let the boy win his spurs, for, If God
will, I desire that this day be his with all its
honore." Young man, fight your own battle
all through and you shall have the victory.
Oh, it Is a battle worth fighting! Two
monarchs of old fought a duel, Charles V
and Francls, and the stakes were kingdoms,
Milan and Burgundy. You fight with sin
and the stake is heaven or hell.
Do not get the fatal idea that you are a
genius andti that, therefore, there is no need
of close application. It is here where nmul

While the divine frown must rest upon
him who tramples upon this statute, God's
special favor will be upon that young man
who scrupuiously observes it. This day
properly observed will throw q ballowet
influence over all the week. The song and
sermon and sanctuary will hold back from
presumptuous sins. That young man who
begins the duties of lifeo with either secret or
open disrespect to the holy day, I venture to
prophesy, will meet with no permanent esuc
cesses. God's eurse will fall upon his ship,
his store, his office, his studio, his body and
his soul, The way of the wicked He turneth
upsite down. In one of the old fables it was
said that a wonderful child was born in Bag
dad, and a magician could hear his footsteps
6000 miles away. But I can hear in the foot
step of that young man on his way to the
house of worship to-day the step not only of
a lifetima of usefulness, but the oncoming
step of eternal ages of happiness yet millions
of years away.

It they prefer misdeeds to correct courses of

Many years ago word came to me that two
imposters, as temperance lecturers, had been
speaking in Ohio mn various places' and giv
ing their experience and they told their
audience that they hal long heen intimate
with me and had Decome drunkards by din
ing at my table, where I always had liquors
of all sorts. Indicnant to the last degt tee, I
went down to Patrick Campbell, chief of
Brooklyn polce, saylung that I was going to
start that night for Ohio to have those vil
lains arrested, and I wante I him to tell me
how to make the arrest. He smiled and said:
"Do not waste your time by chasing these
men. Go home and do your work, and they
ean do you no harm," I took his counsel,
and all was well. Long ago I made up my
mind that if one will put his trust In God
and be faithful to duty he need not fear any
evil. Have God on your side, young man
and all the somhined forcesa of earth and hell
can do you no damage.
And this leeds me to say that the mlght

There comes a orisis in the history of every
man. We seldom understand that turning
point until it is far past. The road of life is
forked, and I read on two signboards: "This
is the way to happiness" and "This
is the way to rauin." How apt we are
to pass the fork of the road without thinking
whether it comes out at the door of bliss or
the gates of darkness.
Many years ago I stood on the anniver
sary platform with a minister of Christ
who made this remarkable statement:
"Thirty years ago two young men started
our in the evening to attend the Park
Theater, New York, where a play was to
be acted In which the cause of religion was
to be placed In a rldleulous and hypocrit
ical light. They came to the stepi. The
consciences of both emote them. One
started to go home, but returned again to
the door. and yet had nat courage tp enter,
and flnally4departed. But the other young
man entered the pit of the theater. It
was the turning point in the history of these
two young men. The man who entered was
caught in the whirl of temptation. He sank
deeper and deeper in infamy. He was lost.
That other young map was saved, and he
now stands before you to bltes God that for
twenty years be has been permitted to
preach the gospel."
"Bajolce, 0 young man, in thy youth and
let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy
youth; but know thou that for all these
things Cod will bring thee unto Judgment."

Oneof the influential German ilus
trated papers, using the report of the
American Consul at Bremen as a text,
says there is a good market in Ger
many for American horses. Since
1895 it appears that fully 10,030
horses have been shipped from this
country to the various German ports,
the chief markets being in Hamburg
and Bremen. They bring on an aver
age about $175 each, and are often re
sold, according to the paper, for $350
at Leipsio and other inland eities.
Purchasers for the animals have gone
from Sweden and Denmark to Ham
burg, showing that there is probably
a market for them in those countriee
as well. The German newspaper,how.
ever, warns American shippers that it
is usoloss to send poor horses to Ger

taken in handling and feeding them
while on the water.

Then why should I sit in the sooraer'i
Or hurl the cynic's ban?-,
Let me live in my house by the side 91
And be a friend to man,
w aa Walter Foss, In lnalepraegt
he sun has swept away the. night,
And all the eastern sky-aglow
With golden olouds and rosy light
Bays to the waking world bellow
Above the branching sunlit trees
The curling smoke wreath floats afar
Before dissolving in the breese,
And signals to the last dim sta~
G Qoad morning.
Tbe buttereupe and daisies fait
That nod and whisper in the breexq
Repeat the salutation there,
And murmur to their friends, theQ bees,
The song bird singing in the grove
Has turned his voice his mate to greet,
And, waking her with thoughts of love,
Sings tenderly, in wood notes sweet,
The modest wild rose of the vale,
Its face turned up toward the sky,
Sends perfume on the summer gale,
And breathes to all with fragrant slgh
Aoross the mead from flow'r to flow'ri
The butterfly in colors rare,
Flits on, unmindful of the hqur,
And says, with most coquettish aig,
And so from meadows and from hill,
From passing breeze and glancing ray,
From mossy glades and rippling rill,
Comes borne to me a bright and gay

II·ove bho! the anchor over the bow,
And off to sea I go;
The wild wind blows and nobody knows
That I have you always nigh,
Uighl close in my hea;rt I can keep yo.
In memory fond and true,
For thoro'll never be one like you, my dear
Thore'll never be one like you.
Oh, he! the billows of Biscay Bay
And the stars of the Bouthern deal
But the dark-haired girls may shake the
With never a look from me;
For the thought of my love shall be eve
Though wide is the ocean blue,
And thera'll never be one like youe, Wi
There'll never be one like you.
The end of the world is a weary way,
And I know not where it lies,
And maidens fair may smile on me there,
And girls with laughing eyes;
But in all the days of all the year
Though I wander the whole world through,
Thero'll never be one like you, my dear
There'!l never be one like you.
The Dream of Love.
Love ls a flitting shadow,
The dream of a passing sleep,
That soothes for a time each sorrow,
And dries the eyes that weep.
Love is a restless slumber
That leaves the heart strings sore
At the slow but sureawaking,
When its fitaful dream is 9'oer
Love is a transient vision '.
A glimpse of a purer sphere,
Whose influence lives forever,
Though brief Its sweets appear,
Love is an hour'sa delusion,
A wine for the heart and brain
That leaves, when its hour is over,
Sweet thoughts that are warped with pauiA

There seems to be no limit to the
ingenuity bestowed upon the devising
of means for accomplishing the trene
port of the perishable produce of dia

new method is that of psacking batte
in a box made of six sheets of ordmi
ary glass, all the edges being eovered
with gummed paper. The glass bou
is enveloped is a layer of plaster oc

this is coverod with specially prepared

If there is any reason why you should itse
any sarsaparilla, there is every reason why you
should. use Ayer's. When you take sarsaparilla
you take it to cure disease; you want to be cured
as quickly as possible and as cheaply as possible,
That is why you should use Ayer's: it cures
quickly and cheaply-and it cures to stay. Many
people write us : " I would sooner have one bottle
of Ayer's Sarsaparilla than three of any other
kind." A druggist writes that "one bottle of
Ayer's will give more benefit than six of any other
kind." If one bottle of Ayer's will do the work
of three it must have the strength of three at the
cost of one. There's tho point ii a sntshel_, it
pays every way to use
