On a Pernvlun Cliff.
Explorers have found a great many
mummies in caves in cliffs among the
Peruvian mountains. How the Indi
aos who entombed their dead in this
way reached the caves hundreds ol
feet down the sides Ol' steep cliffs, is a
matter of conjecture. A French trav?
eler, M. Weiner, narrates a visit to
one of thesr* sepulchers, and the seri?
ous danger he was in of ending his
travels then and there. "I went with
twu Indians," he writes, "to a point
on a high plateau below which was
one of thc caves, and had the Indians
lower me over the precipice with
"A journey of a hundred metres
straight downward, made In such a
way, is extraordinarily long. I ar?
rived at last at the tomb. It wa9
half clcsod with rocks. I went in and
found two skulls and a mummy. I
tied the skulls to my belt, and taking
the mummy in my arms gave the sig?
nal for the Indians to draw me up.
"They obeyed, and gradually I
neared thc top of the precipice The
Indians had not looked over it, and
had no suspicion of what I was bring?
ing in my arms. When the yellow
-skull of their ancient ancestor ap?
peared above the edge of the cliff, the
Indians were terribly frightened, and
let slip the ropes.
"I tannot describe my feelings In
the next second, the awful terror of
leglniiing to fall. In my fright I let go
of the mummy, and it was dashed
into a thousand pieces at the bottom
of tho abyss. Hut the Indians had
not lost their hold of the ropes; they
tlrew me up again, and in a moment
I stood lo safety at the top of the
tn me that when 'those good people,'
the mummies, are distuibed hy In
'lian-s they seize them in a fatal em?
brace, and they assured rae that, as
this mummy's head rose into their
fright, it opened its mouth and would
have utti red a fearful curse upon
them, had it not just then boen
dashed to the bottom of the abvss."
_ "may Picnics Ar? So Called.
Everybody knows what a picnic is,
bot most folks would find lt hard to
say how it got that name, and yet it
is simple enough when you come to
learn it. When a picnic was being
i.rianged for, the custom originally
was that those who intended to be
present should supply th2 eatables
and drinkables. A list of those n.~
ressities having been drawn up, it
was passed round, and each person
picked out the article of food or drink
that he or she was willing to furnish,
and the name of the article was
nicked, or ticked off the list. Thc
open-air entertainment thus became
known as "pick and nick." Thc cus?
tom is said to have dated from 1802,
s i that the picnic is wholly an insti?
tution of the nineteenth century.

There ls an linpc.rt.nt and improving sub?
ject to which most people have given no
thought and concerning whj_i this ls the
first pulpit discussion?namely. "The Song of
Birds." If all that has been written concern?
ing music, by human voice or about musio
?sounded on instrument by finger or breath
were put together, volume by the side of
volume, it would fill a hundred alcoves of the
First, I remark that which will surprise
many, that the song of birds is a regulated
and systematic song, capable of being written
out in note and staff and bar and clef as
much as anything that Wagner or Schumann
or Handel ever put on paper. As we pass the
grove where the flocks aro holding matin or
vesper service we ara apt to think that the
sounds ara extemporized, the rising or falling
noto is a mero accident, it is flung up anel
down by haphazard, tho bird did not know
what it was doing, it did not care whether it
was a long meter'psalm or a madrigal. What
The musician never put on tho music rack
before; him Mendelssohn's "Elijah" or Bee?
thoven's ??Concerto" in G or Spohr's B flat !
symphony with moro deflnito idea as to j
what ho waa doing than every bird that can I
sing at all confines himself to accurate and
predetermined rendering. The oratorios, the
chnnts, the carols, the overtures, the inter?
ludes, the ballads, the canticles that this morn?
ing were heard or will this evening ba
heard in the forest have rolled down through
tho ages without a variation. Even tho
chipmunk's song was ordained clear back in
tno eternities. At tho gates of paradise lt
fang in sounds like tho syllables "Kuk!"
"Kuk!" "Kuk!" just as this moraine in a
Long Island orchard it sang "Ku!-!" "Kuk !"
"Kuk !'' The thrush at the creation uttered
sounds liketheword "Teacher!" "Teacher!"
"Teacher!" rs now it utters sounds like
"Teacher!" "Teacher!" "Teacher!"
In tho summer of the year 1 tho yellow?
hammer trilled thtit which sounded like "If!"
"If!" "Tf!" as in this summer it trills "If!"
"If!" "If!" The Maryland yellowthroat in?
herits and bequeaths the tune sounding like
the words "Pity me, pity me, pity me !" Tho
white f-parrow's "Tseep, tseep' woke our
great .grandfathersaa it will awaken our great
grandchildren. The "Tee-ka-tee-ka-toe-ka"
of the birds in Ihe first century was the same
08 the "Teoka-tee-ka-tee-ka" of the nine?
Tho goldfinch has for 6000 years been
pinging ??Pe-rec-dee-ee-ree." But theso
sounds, whleh we put in harsh word;?,
they put itt, cadences, rhythmic, soulful
and enrapturing. Now if thero is this
order and systematization and rhythm
all through God's creation does lt' not
imply that we should havo tho samo
characteristics in th-3 music wo make or
try to make? Is it not a wickedness that
so many parents give no opportunity for tho
culture of their children in the art of sweet
sound? If God stoops to educate every blue?
bird, orio!-* and grosbeak in song, how can
parents bo so indifferent about the musical
development of the immortals in their house?
Wc want a hemispheric campaign of hosan?
nas. From hearing a Wind beggar sing Mar?
tin Luther wont homo at forty years of ago
to write his first hymn. In the autumn I
hope to have a congregational singing school
hero during tho week which shall preparo
tne people for tho songs of the holy S<ab
bath. If the church of God universal is go?
ing to take this world for righteousness,
there must bo added a hundredfold of more
harmony 33 well cs a hundredfold of more
volume to sacred music.
Further, I notice in tho song of birds
that it ls a divinely taught 6ong. The
rarest prima donna of all the earth could
not teach the robin one musical note. A
kingfisher flying over the roof of a tem?
ple aquake w.th harmonies would not
satoh up one melody. From the time
that tho first bird's throat was fashioned
ran the banks of the Gihon and Hiddekel
until tc-djry cn tho Hudson or Rhino the
winged creaton has learned nothing
"rom thc human race in tho way of carol or
inthem. Tha feathered songsters learned
ill their music direct from God. He gave
hem tho art in a nest of straw or moss or
ktleks and taught them how to lift that song
nto the higher heavens and sprinkle tho j
?arth with its dulcet enchantments. God ,
hshioncd. God tuned, God launched, God j j
ifted music ! And there is a kind of musio j j
rhat tho Lord only can impart to you, my
Songs like that which Tani commended to
;he Colossians when he said, "Admonish one
mother in ps-lms and hymns and spiritual
;ongs, singing, with grace in your hearts, to
ho Loni." Bcngs like .Moses sang after the
ragedy of the Ked sea, songs Uko Deborah
ind Barak sa**g at the overthrow of Sisera,
songs like Isaiah heard the redeemed sing an
ae carne to Zion. Oh. God, teach us that
kind of song which Thou only canst teach
ind help us to sing it on earth and sing it in
beaven. It was the highest result of sweet
wand when under the playing of Paganini
ano auditor exclaimed reverently. "Oa, i
Clod '' an I another sobbed out,--Ofa. Christ!"
Further. 1 remark In regard to the song ol
birds that it is trustful and without nny lear
>f what may yet come. Will you tell m i
how it is possible for that wren, that spar- '
row that ohiokndee, to sing so sweetly when
ney may any tirr.3 be pounced upon ly n
lawk and torn wing from wing? There ara
rue?I beaks in thicket and lu sky ready to
lay the song binds. Herods on 'the wins,
ilodoeg of the sky. Assassins armed with
ron claw. Murderers ot song floating u;i
nd down the heavens. How can the'birds
ing amid such perils? Besides that, how is
he bird sure to get food? Millions bl brr ls
?ave been starved. Yet it sings in the dawn
without any certainty o' breakfast or dinner
>r supper. Would it not bo better to gather j fi
ts food fer tho day before vocalizing.
Besides that, tho hunters aro abroad. \ ,
Jang! goes a gun in ono direction. Hang!
oes a gun in another direction. The song i
fill attract the shot and add to the peril.
For every bird a thousond perils and disr.s- .,;

et thero it sines, and it is a trustful son?, j a

Be careful how you treat tho birds. Re?
member they are God's favorites, and If you
offend them you offend Him. He is so fond of
their voices that there are forests where for a
hundred miles no human foot has ever trod

that needs to be rededicated. It is older than

Again the mount of Olives will be the

The President finally deeided to "spilt tho

immediately or In September, as ho had in?

7th of August.
It was not the clamor of tho bankers and
financiers that moved the President. His
proclamation sets forth tho real considera?

must be executed until repealed by Con?

the value to health of Uie pure liquid
