The following sermon by Rev. T. De-

the voune men of our irreat cities. It was
predicated oa the text;

Suppose you borrow. There is nothing
wrnmr about borrowing money. There is
hardly a man in the house but has some
times borrowed money. Vast estates
have been built on a boi rowed dollar.

The tronblo is, my frieuds, the people
do not understand tho ethics ot going in
debt, and that if you purchaso goods with
no expectation ot paying for them, or go
ini.tiiobt which vou can not meet, you
Just steal so much money. If I go into a
grocer's store, and I buy sugars aud cof
fees and meats, with no capacity to pay
for them aud no intention of paying for
them, I am more dishonest than if I go
into the store, and when tho grocer's face
Is turned the other way I fill my pockets
with articles of merchandise aud carry
off ahum. Iu tho one case I take tho
merchant's time, aud I take the ttmo of
bis messenger to transfer the goods to
my house, while iu tho other case 1 take
none of the time of the merchant, aud I
wait upon myself, and 1 transfer the
goods without any trouble to him. In
other words, a sneak thief is not so bad
as a man who contracts for debts no never
expects to pay.
Yet iu all our cities there are families
that move every May day to get into prox
imity to other grocers, and meat shops,
and apothecaries. They owe every body

vou should not know. Meanwhile your
predecessor has gone to some distant part
of the city, and the people who have any

you have robbed him of his Bible. Have
you ever noticed how despicably men it is

plo and steal nis crutch, meaner man

meaner than to come to a poor man and
burn his house down. It is the worse of
all larcenies to steal the Bible, which has
been tho crutch and medicine and food
and eternal home to so many! What a
gouerous aud naagnanimous business in
fidelity has gone into! This splitting up
of life-boats and taking away of fire es
capes and extinguishing light-houses.
I come out aud 1 say to such people:
"What are you doing all this for?" "Oh,"
they say, "just for fun." It is such fun to
see Christians try to hold on to their
Bibles 1 Many of them have lost loved

resurrection, and it is such fun to tell
them there will be no resurrection I Many

steamer Danmark bound from Christian

valla line is probably the largest immigrant-carrying
line that plies between
this port and Europe. The Danmark had
on board when she left Christiansand for
New York, on March 26, six hundred and
fifty passengers, presumably all immi
grants. Including the vessel's captain,
R. N. Kundsen, the crew numbered forty
The agents of the company do not credit

particulars. At noon Mr. Edye said that

was built in 1880, at Newcastle, England,
and was rated in the highest class. She
was of iron, brigantine rigged, had throe
decks and nine water-tight bulkheads.
Her capacity was 4,400 tons.
No in-coming steamship to this port re
ports any life-boats or rafts that might
have belonged to the Danmark. Even if
the Danmark has been abandoned, she
had sufficient means to accommodate all
the passengers on board, if
not all the crew. There were

and investigated, and afterward made
ure that no one was on board of the
abandoned wreck. The Chester lay to

stern of the Danmark was on
a levol with the sea. He bow was
far out of the water in the air.
There Was no visible signs of a collision.

No list of the passengers on board the
ill-fortuned steamship is to be had in this
city. Several people have called at the

names. Funch, Edye & Co. expect a pas
senger list by the Norddeutcher Lloyd
steamer Aller, due at .this port to-morrow.
Among the first callers at the office of
Funch, Edye & Co. was Morris Stover, a
young farmer from somewhere in Massa
chusetts, who got here last night to await
the arrival of the steamer, upon which
his brother and sweetheart, Mary
Mnller, had taken passage. Hia
grief was uncontrolable when Mr.
Edye said that no contradictory
dispatch had been received at noon. The
Danmark was formerly the freight steam
er Jan Rydel, of ttie White Cross Line.
Last fall Messrs. Funch, Edye & Co., who
are also the agents of the latter line, had
the vessel put it condition for passenger
traffic, and christened her "Dan

first trip from the other side under her
new colors. The reported disaster vivid

THE HEATHEN CHINESE.
They Are Full of Superstitions and Like to
The Chinese are full ot supersti
tions, and many of them firmly be
lieve that the foreigners make medi
cines out of human beings. The mas
ts acre nt Ticn-Tsin in 1870. in which
twenty foreigners were killed, and
among them a number of French nuns,
was caused by the report that the sis
ters were killing childron to get their
tiourtn and eves for medical purposes,
and the trouble in Coroa last spring
was caused by the circulation of the
stories that the missionaries were
grinding up children's bones to
make medicine. This report was
started by the Chineso, and
the latest attempt of tho kind
I find to-day here at Shanghai. It ap
pears in a trl-monthly illustrated mag
azine which the Chinese publish and
which sells for five cents a copy. This
contains a full description of how the
foreigners make their medicine, with
ghastly illustrations of tho severed
trunks and tho cut-up limbs of human
beings. In one cut men in American
clothes are bending over great furnaces
in which tho heads and legs of mon
are boiling, and beside which
great baskets and tubs of cut-up
humans lie. Tho men are stirring the
steaming mass and the picture makes
one think of the witches' caldron iu
Macbeth.' In another cut is shown
the machinery for the bringing, up of
the bones and flesh. A dozen old skel
etons lie upon the floor, and a man
with a shovel puts the ghastly mass
upon the scales for weighing. In an
other room the medicine is packed up
to be sent away, and young ladies in
American dress with waterfalls and
French heels are busy at it I asked
the manager of the magazine whether
he believed in such stulT, and ho re
plied that he did not know and asked
if it was not really true.
Tho Chinese themselves do not. bo-
lieve in dissection, and there is no
body-snatching hero. They believe
that the heart is tho seat of thought
that the soul exists in the liver, and
that the gall bladder is tho sctit of
courage. For this reason tho gall
bladders of tigers are oaten by soldiers
to inspire them wilh courage. Tho
Chinese doctor ranks no higher than
the ordinary skilled workman. Ho
gets from fifteen or .twenty cents a
visit, and he often takes pa
tients on condition that be will
cure them within a certain timo or
no pay. Ho never sees his female
patients except behind a sc-een, ana
ho does not pay a second visit unless
invited. His pay is called "golden
thanks," and tho orthodox way of
sending it to him is wrapped in red
paper. Tho dentists look upon pulled
teeth as trophies, and they go about
with necklaces of decayed teeth about
their necks or with them strung upon
strings and tied to sticks. Toothache
is supposed to come from a worm in the
looth, and there are a set of femalo
doctors who make a business of extract
ing these worms. When tho nerve is
exposed thoy take this out and call it
the worm, and when not they use a
sleight of hand by which they make
their patients believe certain worms,
which they show them, came from
their teeth. I fiavo hoard persons tell
of Chinamen who claimed to have had
ten worms taken from their mouths in
a single day, and I saw a woman act
ually at work upon a patient in the
street here. China is as full of super
stition as the West India islands, and
the people like to bo humbugged quito
as well here as wo do in America.

If your object is to keep hens for tho
purpose of selling eggs, do not keep a
