O- S. Kelly, the millionaire reaper find

ering ail electric 6treet railways in which
the current is 6-jpplied by an overhead

collect loyalties frem the ekctric
street railway companies utiog
that system, or institute iafringmeiit
suits. Nine years sgo Charles Greene,
of Kakmezio, Mich., invented an electric
street railway. He tried to get a patent
on it. but failed through technicalities,
and piten .s covering the ground of his
invention were cratted to others and be
gantoconie into almost general use.
Greene si.w he wculd be powerless
to cope with the Rreat monopo
lists who were using Lis invention
and sold his claim ti Mr. ' Kelly, who
has pushed the claims through to a
successful termination in a legal bat
tle lasting tine years. By a recent de
cision of th-3 Eupreme court of the Dis
trict of Coll mbia Green's claims are sus
tained, wbieh gives Kelly control of the
patent on the electric street railway sys
tem in most general use all over the
country. Kelly is preparing for a tre
mendous legal battle which will rank
with the Beli telephone s lit or the Howe
sewing machine case. There are now
7.000 electric cars in various parts of the
country opented under the systeia cov

Not Like Other Boohs.
When we take the New Testament in
hand at any hour but most fittingly in
the dewy freshness of the morning, "ere
worldly cares have come in to distract our
thonghts, or in the evening twilight, when
the labor of the day is done and open it at
the Gospels or the Acts, the Kpistles or the
Revelation, it docs not seem like anything
that we read anywhere else. It is not like
other books. Indeed we cannot think of it
as a human composition, as mere litera
ture, or history, or philosophy. It is more
like a living personality. Not iir.freo,ucnt
lyinour spiritual experience we are in a
kind of trance, with souses dead to out
ward objects, while wondrous inspirations
drop down from a!ovc.
At times it seems as if we heard a voire,
a loving, gentle voice, nnd yet that speaks
in a tone of authority; that comes from an
infinite elistanre, ami yit comes so near
that it penetrates the very soul; that en
ters into our sense of guilt with its fore
bodings, an.l yet whispers of pardon and
peace, until the trembling heart vibrates
with a joy that is not of this world. What
is it in the liible that gives it this mys
terious power? Tt is not mere poetry or
cloqnenep, however much they may over
flow in the psalms and the prophets. It is
not genius; it is divinity. It is God speak
ing to men, and therefore speaking in the
language of men with a human voice,
though with a divine love and tenderness.
