Thb late Charles Hidden SpurgeoD,
England's great Baptist divine, was ac
customed to preaching to congregations
of 6.000 each Sunday. lie once preached
to 23.000 in the Crystal palace near Lon

The complete novel in Lippincoti's
Magazine for February, '"Roy the Roy
alist," is by William Wc stall, and is a
stirring tale of adventure in the wars of
Napoleon. Though its events dite back
nearly a century, they are presented in
the brisk and business like modern man
ner. The hero, a dashing young officer
of the British navy, prompt and capable
alike in friendship, love and war, meets
Bonaparte while a prisoner in France,
distinguishes himself in the defence of
Acre, recovers a treasure concealed in a
chateau of the Jura by its ci- devant own
ers, and finally settles in his native Vir
ginia. Governor Boyd, of Nebraska, is to
have his rights at last, and be it said to
the credit of the supreme court of the
United States that it is through that
tribunal that he is to enjoy the honors
which the people cf the state have im-
posed upon him. Trumped up technical

in temporarily displacing him and seating
his republican opponent whom be fairly
defeated at the polls dan't count for much

world. In this country the will of the
majority must prevail and the courts are
to see that the rights of the people are
maintained. The law of the land may
be depended upon to insure those rights.
New York World: The democratic
national convention will meet in Chicsgo
on June 21 and name the next president.
After New York Chicago is the most suit
able place for the convention. Its loca
tion is even more convenient for the pur
pose. The western metropolis has a suit
able ball, ample hotel accommodation-)
and adequate telegraphic and newspaptr
service. Illinois has become a debatable
state, and I"wa, its near neighbor, Lhs

national convention at the west may help
the party in both of those states, while
New York is surely democratic, with a
wise nomination, regardless of where it is
How Coal May He Saved.
When it is understood that the same
amount of fuel is consumed in producing
either gas or heat, it is readily seen why
one person will use four times as much
coal as another without producing any
more heat, if as much. When feeding coal
after the fire is made, only a small quan
tity should be fed at a time, and that
spread evenly over the surface of the fire,
for when fresh coal is added it for a time
lowers the temperature of the fire box (just
as pouring cold water into a pot of boiling
vrater stops the boiling by lowering the
temperature) until the added coal is heated
tip to the igniting point, when it first be
gins to burn and adds its heat to the mass.
When but little conl is added, this lower
ing of the temperature will be hardly no
ticed, but add a Large quantity, and it can
be plainly seen. Stoves and Ilurdware.

TALK V-ITH A FOLLOWER OF THE
SWISS SEWING SPINSTER.
A Small Congregation in Philadelphia
Worships ttie Memory of Sierra Metta.
She I Itli ved to Have Ueen Divine
and Possessed Marvelous Tower.
The followers of J. Elinor Merra Metta,
who in her li 'e was and since her death is
worshiped as it divine personage, still keep
up their religious observances in this city.
At the house o worship, 1,128 South Elev
enth street, the congregation holds regu
lar Sunday services. The congregation,
through death of old members, has dwin
dled down to ighteen, and at yesterday's
service but sev persons were present.
The services were similar to those one
would witness in any German church. The
memliers open-Mi services by singing from
the German Evangelical Hymnal. Philip
Becker, one of i he members, then lifted up
the voice or pi aver, lie prayed earnestly
that truth mi;;lit be sent to the members
of the congregation, thanking the lxrd for
the plentitude i f goodness he had bestowed
The only peet liar part of the warship is
the reading from a book the writings of
Merra Metta. The selections read took
the place of a sermon, comment being
made upon them by the members. The
exercises were marked th roughout Miy a
spirit of deep sincerity. The lessons, as
read, touched t. pon the unity of God, of
his revelations i nd of a recital of Biblical
stories the fal. of Lucifer and of man
A DEVOTED DIPCiri.E.
Nothing coul 1 be more simple and un
affected than the service of the congrega
tion. The spirit of simplicity the worship
ers carry out in their lives.
Mrs. Eliza Munzcrt, a widow, and tho
most devout of Merra Metta followers,
gave an extend 1 account of her whom
they worshiped, la the story, tradition
and Biblical account were most strikingly
intertwined, Merra Metta being, accord
ing to their belii f, the third person in the
holy trinity. M:-s. Munzert at first talked
in a low, earnest tone, carefully guarding
every statemeut that might appear incred
ulous. As she progressed, however, she
became animated, particularly so when
she told of most wonderful acts performed
by Merra Metta.
"Yes," she beiran, "I have devoted my
whole life to the service of Merra Metta.
Of course I have lieen abused. The disci
ples of our Ixrd were stoned and beaten.
But 1 think of this, that the eternal life to
come is of more moment than this'tran
sient earthly existence. In Merra Metta'a
service I shall always labor. When my
mother died she clasped my arm, told me
that I should neeer leave her service, and
bade mo promise at her dying moment that
I would always v ork in the cause. I prom
ised. When my husband died, he said: 'I
see it all. Merra Metta is divine. Stay by
her.' I continue 1 my previous promise,
being requested co do so with his dying
story or mi:i:i:a metta.
"Merra Metta vas born in a Swiss farm
house. She was not well learned in book
knowiedge, so yo i see w hat she professed
was true and no; the invention of a bril
liant mind. She was well versed in spir
itual things, how ever. She came to this
country and old lined employment as a
dressmaker. That was a good many years
ago. Yes, I should sty it w;is more than
forty years aico. You know dressmakers
received poor pay then, and Anna Meister,
as she was then ki own, was worked almost
to death to gain a livelihood. Still she
always found linu for prayer and for the
study of the Bible
"One day a frit ml cf my mother, who
was also a dressuu kcr. called to see Anna
at her lodgings. he lived with a family
named Burke no.i- Ninth and Callowhill
or Kacc streets. I really forget which of
the two streets it vas. She went to Anna's
room and finding the door open was about
to enter. She heatd Anna communicating
with some one nb at religion. She didn't
want to obtrude so she peerx! in. She saw
Anna sitting with her back to the door.
Her sewing lay con. used before her. Anna's
hands were rigidly extended from her, the
palms were turned outward. Anna still
kept on mumbling, but now and then the
listener could cat'ih some words from
which she learned that the talk was on re
ligion. The caller oughed to attract at
tention, but did not get it, aud Merra Metta
still kept on talk in
"After awhile tin- visitor entered. Then
Anna broke out ii. to tears and repeated a
story about her iuueiic visitors who told
her never to work any more, but to preach
what was told her. You know in the book
of John, in chapter 15 and Hi, it says that
the Holy Ghost should recount what was
revealed from above. The visitor became
convinced of Anna I leister's divine calling.
She said: 'Yes, I s -e it all. I believe in
you. But come, I w ill take you to a friend
of mine who is verst d in such matters.'

"The friend to whom Anna was then
taken was my moth t.
"When mother sa v her she closed her
eyes and said: '1 see a train of golden
angels of marveloiu- In-auty streaming le
hind you. But iu front stand three of
most transcending beauty, beautiful be

beautiful angels. And on their fair brows

other "Michael," a id on the third "Ga

printed in golden letters. On his brow
are written cliaracte-s of gold, J. Elinor

and on your brows, my dear Anna, I see
the same words, "J. Kiinor Merra Metta."
You shall afterward be called 'J. Elinor
"Merra Metta's divine attributes were
often shown, She cured the lame, the sick
and the blind. When a lame (H-rson came
she would pass her hand over the maimed
part and say, 'Walk!' When a particular
herb would be required for the sick she
would tell me to go dowu a certain street,
np another, and throi gh a third and fourth
and more. Then she would describe a par
ticular spot aud tell me, 'There you will
find an herb! I don't know its name, but
it will cure this sic persou.' I ulwuys
found it, and it always cured.
"Her revelations would be made in this
way: She would pn;s her hand over a
table. There would be revealed to my
mother golden characters, unintelligible to
anybody else. Thus she told us always to
take care of her. It v an ordained that she
should never work more, and we supplied
her with all her n.-eds." Philadelphia

The End or Our World.
Sir William Thompson, in a lecture be
fore the Royal Institution of J.onion, set
forth the latest scientific theories concern
ing the probablp origin, total amount and
possible duration of our sun's heat and
light. After referring to the theory of
llelmholtz that the sun was a vast globe
gradually cooling, and shrinking as it
cooled, but that the shrinkage (which was
the effect of gravity upon its mass) kept
up its temperature, Sir William said:
The total of the sun's heat is equal to
that which would be required to keep up
476,000 millions of millions of millions of
horse power, or about 78,000 horse power
for every square yard, and yet the modern
dynamical theory of heat shows that the
sun's mass must fall in or contract thirty
five meters per annum to keep up that tre
At this rate of contraction the solar
radius will be .01 per cent, less in 2,000
years from now than it is today. Accord
ing to these deductions, a time must come
when the temperature must fall. This be
ing the case, it is inconceivable that the
sun will continue to emit heat sufficient to
sustain animal life for more thau 10,000,000
Science for Its Own Sake.
A prominent feature in Faraday's char
acter was his absolute love of science for
its own sake. He freely gave his discover
ies to his world, when he could easily have
built up a colossal fortune upon them. He
once told his friend. Professor Tyndall,
that at a certain period of his career he had
definitely to ask himself whether he should
make wealth or science the object of his
life. He could not serve both masters, and
was therefore compelled to choose between
them. When preparing his well known
memoir of the great master the professor
called to mind this conversation, and asked
leave to examine his accounts. And this is
the conclusion the professor arrived at:
Taking the duration of Lis life iuto ac
count, this son of a blacksmith and appren
tice to a bookbinder, had to decide between
a fortune of a il.")0,0ti0 on the one side and
i his unendowed science on the other. Jle
chose the latter and died a poor man. But
his was the glory of holding aloft among
the nations the scientific name of England
for a period of forty years. Murray's Mag
I'srs for Quills.
Owing to the substitution of steel pens
for quill pens other uses have had to be
found for the goose quill, and now they are
converted into bristles for brushes, tooth

goose quills, valued at 20,5!1, and 30,000
swan quills, of the value of '.170, were re
ceived. The quills of the swan and turkey
were used for engrossing pens, those of the
goose for ordinary writing and those of the

The most trying of hosts is the man who
shows you over his property. You are
taken to the stable it looks much like any
other stable; then you are trotted off to
the home farm; after this you are dragged
up a hill to look at the view. And every
thing you have, in common civility, to
praise as though you had never gone
through this sort of thing before.
And the host, strangely enough, really
seems to enjoy converting himself into a
