their predielions, yet he was "despised

His miracles were wrought liefore the
eyes of the world. Thev were wonder

stirred up no slrifeand raised no sedition,
yet when the Jew saw him he had no

The puzzle yet remains why they rejected
him. Hut above this rises an all iniHir
taut and momentous question, why do
so many of the present day reject him ?
Who can tell us? It is the problem
of the ages. Twenty-live million inlnlls

Schnrtleauil l. K. McKinnon, went out
on n strike this morning. An advance
was mndc, going into effect this morn
ing, by Mr. Selinrtlc, in the wages of his
coat-mnkcrs, allowing the same prices
paid by McKinnon. The pantaloon and
vest makers in both shops then demanded
a raise. The demand is now being con
sidered by the tailoring establishments.
The price heretofore paid for milking
pantaloons and vests has U-m $1.75 to
$X00 each. The increase in pay de
manded is only for extras, which will av
