White clover is one of the best pasture
grasses for sheep, and as it is hardy, as
well as being adapted to nearly all kinds

Seed that is slow of germination is often
overtaken by grass, the rows being com
pletely covered and destro3-ed. An excel
lent method of marking the rows so as to

intervals pf about ciie foot. As the radish j
soon comes up the rows can be worked and
the radish afterward pulled out.
To a considerable extent the injury to
fruit trees from thawing and freezing can

WHITECAPS IN MARYLAND.
Allentown, Md., Jan. 19. This week
several notices had been posted in Ken-

to work and do better, and with the usual
crossbones and skull and signed "White-
caps." No attention was paid to the ad
vice given, and last night the Whitecaps
attacked the house of "Bill" Ivans, ad'
joining the railroad. The mmates were
not slow to bar the doors and windows
and call for help, which fortunately soon
came. The rescuers were armed with
axes, forks, fence rails and guns. Shots
were fired, but the contents missed their
mark and consequently no one was seri
ously injured, but the explosion of the
weapons caused the AVhitecaps to vacate
the premises in great haste.
THE HAYTIEN REPUBLIC.
One of I.egltlme's Gunboats Attempts to

Port au Prince, Haytt, Jan. 3. The
steamship Haytien Republic was run into
by the Haytien gunboat Nouville Void-

out serious damage to either vessel
The Haytien gunboat was entering
the harbor at full speed, and could
have steamed to her anchorage without any
change of course, but when within 200
yards of the Haytien Republic her helm
was suddenly put to port and remained so
until she struck that vessel. Then her en

distance of two hundred yard3. She then
again steamed at full speed until a short
distance from the Haytien Republic, when
her coarse was slightly changed, thus just
It is the opinion that it was a deliberate
attempt to sink the released ship. It Is a
question whether the scheme wa orig

London, an. 13. The expressions of
American opinion in relation to Sardoan
affairs, which have baen' widely copied in
Germany, appear to have excited among
ihe leading journals and prominent classe
a mingled feeling of indignation and con
tempt. Certainly the gazettes of the larger
cities are- aware of the population and
wealth of the United States but they re
gard the country as in ighificant in a mil
itary sensoi and a only intent on trade
and the development of the unsettled por
tions of its large territory. Ihe idea that
such a distant and unwarlike nation would
care to interfere with the new colonial
policy seems to Germans to be audacious
in the highest degree. Naval officers who
wish to win laurels equal to those which
their military brothers have gained on
land are hcpeful of a diOlcultr with the
United States, anu it is even regarded at
headquarters as rathor a desirable event
in order to give experience to the crews
and suggest future improvement in the
vessels. The Germans have some good
ships, well aried aHd the men preent a
sufficiently smart appearance, but the lat

Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage took for the
subject of a recent sermon, in Brooklyn,

And call the Sabbath a delight. Isaiah
There is an element of gloom striking
through all false religions. Paganism Is
a brood ot horrors. The god of Con-
.fucius frowned upon its victims with.
blind fate. Mohammedanism promises
nothing to those exhausted with ' sin In
this world,' but. aa eternity -of the same
passional indulgences. But God in
tended that our religion should have the
grand characteristic of cheerfulness. St.
Paul struck the key-note when he said:
Rejoice evermore, and again I say, re
joice." This religion has no spikes for
the feet; it has no hooks for the shoulder;
it has no long privileges to take, it has no
funeral pyres upon which to leap, it has
no juggernauts before which to fall. Its
good cheer is symbolized in the Bible by
the brightness of waters and the redo
lence of lilies, and the sweetness of
music, and the hilarities of a banquet. A
choir of seraphim chanted at its induc
tion, and pealing trumpet, and waving
palm, and napping wings of archangel,
are to celebrate its triumphs. It began
its chief mission with the shout: "Glory
to God in the highest:'" and it will close
its earthly mission with the ascription:
"Hallelujah, the Lord God omnipotent
But men have said that our religion Is
not cheerful, because we have such a
doleful Sabbath. They say: "You can
have your religious assemblages, and
your long faces, and your sniffling cant,
and your Psalm books, and your Bible.
Give us the Sunday excursion, and the
convivial laughter. We hav-e so much joy
that we want to spread it all over the sev
en days of the week, and you shall not
have one of our days of worldly satisfac
tion for religious dolefulness." I want to
show these men of there are any such in
this house this morning that they are
tinder a great delusion, and that God in
tended the fifty-two Sundays of the year
to be hung up like bells in a tower, beat
ing a perpetual chime of joy and glory
and salvation and Heaven; fori want to
carry out the idea of the text, "and call
the Sabbath a delight."
I remark, in the first place, we are to
find in this day the joy of healthy repose.
In this democratic couatry we all have to
work some with hands, some with brains,
some with foot. If there is in all this
house a hand that has not, during the past
year, been stretched forth to some kind of
toil, let it be lifted. Not one, not one.
You sell the goods. You teach the school.
You doctor in the sick room. You prac
tice at the bar. You edit a newspaper.
You tan the hides. You preach the Gos

the ladder on the wall. And the one occu
pation is as honorable as the other, pro
vided God calls you to it. I care not what
you do, If you only do it well. But when
Saturday night comes you are jaded and
The hand can not so skillfully manuf act
lire; the eye can not see so well; tue
brain is not bo clear; the judgment is not
so well balanced. A prominent manuf act-
ttref told me that he could see a differ
ence between the goods which went out of
his establishment on Saturday from the
poods that went out on Monday. He said:
'They were very different indeed. Those
that were made iu the former prt of the
week, because of the rest that had been
previously given, v'ere better than those
that were made in the latter part or tne
week, when the men were tired out." The
Babbath comes, and it bathes the sore
hess from the limbs, quiets the agitated
brain and puts out the fires of anxiety
that have been burning all the week Ouf
bodies are seven-day clocks, and unless
tin the seventh day they are wound up
they run down into the grave:
The Sabbath was intended as a savings
bank. .Into it we are to gather the re
sources upon which we are to-draw all the
week; lhat man who breaks the Sabbath
robs his own nerve, his owri lrtdsclo, his
Own brain, hi3 own bone. He dips' up tne
wine of his Own life and throws it away.
Ho who breaks the Lord's day gives a
mortgage to disease and death upon his
entire physical estate, and at the most
Unexpected moment that mortgage will
be foreclosed and the soul ejected from

keep it holy." There are thousands of
men who have had their lives dashed out
?ier3Tist the golden gates of the Sabbath.
A prominent London n'riclmrt testifies
that thirty years ago " went to LdnuCrt.

Who Cultures his ground on tho Sabbath

"I defy vour Christian "Kabbath. J will

and plowed the ground on Sunday, and
harrowed it on Sunday, anu e pianieu
corn on Sunday, and he reaped the corn
ou Sunday, and he gathered it into the
Vam on kundav. "There," he says, "I
have proved to you that all this idea
Wvi.t fatality accompanying Sabbath
work is a perfect sham. My corn is
garnered and all is well." But before
many weeks passed the Lord God struck
that barn with His lightning and away
went, the Sunday crop
a .rain. T remark, we ought to have in the
Raiihnth the iov of d jQieotic reunion aud
consecration. There are some very good

the Sabbath a great glom. Their chil

fcorry w hen Sunday comes, aud glad when
i R.gooway. They think of every thing bad
on that day. It is the worje day to them,
really, in all the week. There are persons
who, because they were brought up in
Christian families, where there were
wrong notions about the Sabbath, have
gone out into dissipation and will be lost.
A man said to me : "I have a perfect dis -gust
for the Sabbath. I never saw my
father smilo on Sunday. It was such a
dreadful day to me when I was a boy, I
never got over it, and never will." Those
parents did not "call the Sabbath a de
light;" they made it a gloom. But there
are houses represented here this morning
where the children say through the week :
"I wonder when Sunday will come!"
They are anxious to have it come. I hear
their hosanna in the house ; I hear their
hosanna m the school. God intended the
Sabbath to be especially a day for the
father. The mother is homo all the week.
Sabbath-day comes, and God says to tho
father,' who has been busy from Monday
morning to Saturday night at the store or
away from home: "This is your day. See
what you can do in this little flock in pre
paring them for Heaven. This day I set
apart for you."
You know very well that there are many
parents who are mere suttlers of the
household; they provide the food and
raiment. Once in awhile, perhaps, they
hear tho child read a line or two in the
new primer; or, if there be a ease of es
pecial discipline, and the mother cau not
manage it, the child is brought up in the
court-martial of the father's discipline
and punished. That is all there is of it.
No scrutiny of that child's immortal in
terests; no realization of the f act that the
child will soon go out in a world where
there are gigantic and overwhelming
temptations that have swamped millions.
But in some households it is not that way;
the home, beautiful on ordinary days, is
more beautiful now that the Sabbath has
dawned. There is more joy in the "good
morning;" there is more tenderness in
the morning prayer. The father looks at
the child, and the child looks at the father.
The littte one dares now to ask questions
without any fear of baing answered:
"Don't bother me I must bo off to the
store." Now the father looks at the
child, and he sees not merely the blue
eyes, the arched brow, 'the long lashes,
the sweet lip. He see in that child a long?
line of earthly destinies; he sees in that
child an immeasurable eternity. As he
touches that child, he says: "I wonder
what will be the destiny of this little
one?" And while this Christian father is
thinking and praying, the sweet promise
flows through his soul: "Of such is the
kingdom of Heaven." And he feels a joy,
not like that which sounds in the dance,
or is wafted from the froth of the wine
cup, or that which is like the "crackling
of thorns under a pot," but the joy of
domestic reunion and consecration.
Have I been picturing something that is
merely fanciful, or is it possible for you
and for me to have such a home a3 that?
I believe it is possible.
I have a statistic that I would like to
give you. A great many people, you know,
say there is nothing in the Christian dis
cipline of a household. In New Hamp
shire there were two neighborhoods the
one of six families, the other of five fam
ilies. The six families disregarded the
Sabbath. In time five of these families
were broken up by the separation of hus
bands and wives ; the other by the father
becoming a thief. Eight or nine of the
parents became drunkards, one commit
ted suicide, and all came to penury. Of
some forty or fifty descendants, about
twenty are known to be drunkards and
gamblers, and dissolute. Four or five
have been in State prison. One fell in a
duel. Some are in the alms-house. Only
one became a Christian, and he after first
having been outrageously dissipated. The
other five families that regarded the Sab
bath were all prosperous. Eight or ten
of the children are consistent members of
the church. Homo of them became officers
in the church one id a minister of the
Gospel, one is a missionary to China. No
poverty among any of them. The home
stead is now in the hands of the third gen
eration. Those Who have died have died
in the peace of the Gospel. Oh, is there
nothing in a household that remembers
God's holy day? Can it bo possible that
those who disregard this holy command
ment can be prospered for this life or
have any good hope of the life that is to
Again, we ought to have in the Sabbath

You see them moving ip and down the
streets. Is it a festal day? people might
ask. Has there been some public edict
commanding the people to come forth?
Nd they are only worshipers of God who
are going to tiiefrplitcesof religious serv

the joy of Christian convocation? It gives
brightre'ss to the eye, aud a flush to the

thrill to the heart. You ere the aged man

we must look out on that largw 'ass ot
persons in our day who would throw dis
credit upon the Lord's day. There ara

never to give up: the one ia the Bible, th
other i3 the Sabbath. Take away one,
and you take both. Take either, and
farewell to Christianity in this country,
farewell to our civil and religious liber
ties. When they go, all go. He who has
ever spent Suuday ia Paris, or Antwerp,
or Rome, if he be an intelligent Chris
tian, will pray God that theday will never
come when the Sabbath of Continental
Europe shall put its foot upon our shores.
1 had a friend in Syracuse who lived to b
one hundred years of age. He said to me
in his ninety-ninth year: "I went across
the mountains in the early history of this
country. Sabbath morning came. Wa
were beyond the reach of civilization
My comrades were all going out for an
excursion. I said: 'No, I won't go; it is
Sunday. Why, they laughed. They said:
'We haven't any Sunday here.' 'Oh,
yes,' J said, 'you have. I brought it with
me over the mountains.' "
There are two or three ways in which
we can war against Sabbath-breaking
usages in this day, and the first thing is
to get our children right upon this ubjeo
and teach them that the Sabbath day ia
the holiest of all the days, and the best
and the gladdest. Unless you teach your
child under the paternal roof to keep thfi
Lord's day there ara nine hundred and
ninety chances out of a thousand it will
never learn to keep the Sabbath. You
may think to shirk responsibility in the
matter, and send your child to Sabbath
school and the house of God. That will
not relieve the matter. I want to tell you
in the name of Christ, my maker and my
Judge, that your example will be more
potential than any instrutinn they get
elsewhere, and if you disregard the Lord's
day yourself, or in anywise throw con
tempt upon it, you are blasting your chil
dren with an infinite curse. It Is a rough
truth, I know, told in a rough way; but it
is God's truth, nevertheless. Your child
may go on to seventy or eighty
years of age, but that child will never
get over the awful disadvantage of hav
ing had a Sabbath-breaking father or
a Sabbath-breaking mother. It is the joy
of many of us that we can look back to an
early home where God was honored, and
when the Sabbath came it was a day of
great consecration and joy. We remem
ber the old faces around the table that
Sabbath morning. Our hearts melt when
we think of those blessed associations,
and we may have been off and committed
many indiscretions and done many wrong
things, but the day will never come when
we torget the early home in which God's
day was regarded, and father and mother
told us to keep holy the Sabbath.
There is another way in which we can
war against the Sabbath -breaking usage
of the country at this time, and that is by
making our houses of worship attractive
and the religious services inspiring. I
plead not for a gorgeous audience-chamber;
I plead not for groined rafters or
magnificent fresco; but I do plead for
comfortable churches, home-like churches
places where the church-going popula
tion behave as they ought to. Make tho
church welcome to all, however poorly
clad they may be, or whatever may hava
been their past history; for I think thn
Church of God is not so much made for
you who could have churches in your own
house, but for the vast population of our
great cities who are treading on toward,
death, with no voice of mercy to ar
rest them. Ah? when the prodigt.1
comes into the church, do not staM at
him as though he had no right to come.
Give him the best seat you can find
for him. Sometimes a man wakes up
from his sin. and he says: "I'll go to the
house of God." Perhaps he comes frena
one motive, perhaps from another. H'o
finds tho church dark aud the Christian
people frigid (and there are no people on
earth who can be more frigid than Chris
tian people when they try), and the musio
is dull, and he never comes again. Bup
pose one ot these men enters the church.
As he comes ia he hoars a song which bis
mother sang when he was a boy; he re
members it. He situ down, and some ons
hands him a book, open at
Jerusalem, my happy home,
Name ever dear to me.
"Yes," he says, "I have heard that
many times." He sees cheeiful Christian
people there, every man's face a psalm of
thanksgiving to God. He says s "Do you
have this so every Sunday? I have hoard
that the house of God was a doleful place,
and Christians were lugubrious and re-
peling! I have really enjoyed myself!"
The next Sabbath the man is again in ine
same pine. Tears of repentanca start
down his cheek, he begins to pray; and
when the communion table Is spread, he
sits at it, and some one reaches over end
says: "I am surprised to find you here.
thought you didn't believe in sucn
things." "Ah I" he says, "I have been

that I concluded I would come among you.
Where thou ifoest I will go; thy people
shall be my people, and thy Ood my God.
Where thou diest will I die, and mere win

sins, but you can coax them out you can
