The Distinguishing Feature of
To the Editor of The Times?It was
with a timid hand that 1 presented the
former article on the above subject, not
knowing whether it would be accepted or
rejected. I knew]) I would be coming
before giants, so to speak, before men
who have, perhaps, giveu it double .the
thought that I have In the face of all
this they cannot think nor present it just
as I would do?iu short, they caunot do
my work To say the least, some reader
may give this subject a more thorough
study thau he has heretofore. I am
aw*>re of my own insufficiency and my
ownjuuworthiness, but ia' the face of all
this, I do uot know that It should deter
I have received mercy and grace from
Him aloue who is able to bestow it, and
it rt maim; a question as to whether I con?
tinue therein, or grow unmindful of my
high privileges and mingle again with
the. disobedient and sinlul.
It will be seen, then, that the object of
last week's article was to ascertain from
a Bible standpoint what a Christian con?
version, in its fult sense, implies. Con?
version means, as Webster has it: "Iu a
general sense a turning or changing from
one state to another," but one of bis
definitions of the word "convert" is very
suggestive and worthy of a place just
here?"To turn from a bad life to a good
one; to change the heart ami moral char?
acter from enmity to God and frjm
vicious habits, to love of God and a holy
life." Bo wo see that it is not only re?
nouncing a former course and acquiesc?
ing in nnotber, but it Implies a life of
cbedience as well. He thnt grouuds the
arms of his rebellion, forsakes the devil's
ranks and joius the army of the "Lord, it
he fails to equip himself and fight the
Lord's battles, Is hardly half converted,
to say the least of it. Tw ? of tho most
fearful warnings in the Bible are "the
handles of the plow," and "Lot's wife."
The Lord have mercy upou and save us
weak, indifferent and forgetful Chris?
During the Wet Id's Fair a conference
was held, if I mistake not, representing
the different leading religions of the
. world to ascertain whether thoy could
not be made to harmonize. It was said
that K. G. Ingersoll was among them,
and yet confront him with the Christian
religion and he opposes it. Why? Be?
cause there is something in it that hits at
the very roots of sin. Did you ever no?
tice that Infidels and men of "liberal
thought." so called, are ready to attack
the doctrines of the Bible. The devil
batet conversion, tor he well knows that
when It is genuine that it means much
more than a mere turning nnd a change
of the mind. He knows that the convert
is no longer held by him in the chain*? of
sin, thit lie has lost one of his- faithful
subjects, and that his cause is weakened.
Here is and always will be tho* hottest
battle ground between religion and the
world, Christ and the devil. Every ear?
nest and faithful pastor knows this well.
They have seen that when the Spirit of
the Lord was present to convict and turn
men, then it was that the battle grew
strong between the army of the Lord and
the hosts of sin.
A-t the outsei. I had a purpose in writ?
ing on the present subject, but It now
seems that I am rather slow in complet?
ing it. I think that It will be plainly
seen that to be a truly converted person
that it implies a complete and entire sur?
render of soul, bod) and mind to the
cause of Christ. This requires the full
extent of evety facility of mind and soul
of which the individual is capable. Hav?
ing done this, he Is stivctl from all sin, he
is renewed by the blood of the everlast?
ing covenant ami his feet placed In the
pntt that leads to heaven. But he is
only a babe in Christ ami must grow
stronger day by day by receiving "the
sincere milk of the Word." This is the
plan of Christian growth. As to nur one
special blessing in accomplishing this I
am wholly unprepared to give anything
bearing on the subject. H.

CURIOUS DISCOVERIES MADE IN A
Immense W?bs Wovon by Teltow Spiders.
A Mysterious Di?ai?peftranoe Explained.
A Frultllko Crab?Tricks of Mature Pro?
tect the Defenseless.
Once, iu attempting to force my way
through the thick bajr cedar underbrush
of one of tho smaller and outer keys of
the Florida reef I suddenly broke into
au opening which had tho appearance
of a narrow street or trail. The brush
was six or eight feet in height and re?
markably thick, and tho heat was intol?
erable. Tho branches and leaves which
were interlaced formed a perfect net?
work and gave shelter to innumerable
crabs, which had taken possession of
old birds' nests, while under foot the
eggs and newly hatohed terns almost
covorcd tho ground.
Once in the opening or street it was
found to bo about seven feet across,
winding away out of Bight, but my way
was blocked by several enrions obsta?
cles?a succession of webs stretched
vertically across the pathway at inter?
vals of five or six feet They wero of
extraordinary strength and were thrown
out and poisod iu a marvelous manner.
In tho center of each of these silken bar?
riers clung a hugo yellow spider, so ug?
ly and conspicuous that I stopped be
foro tho first doubting tho evideuco of
my eyes, aud as I looked tho first yel?
low spider of tho series disappeared.
Thoro was no doubt about it. At first
so striking and gaudy, it slowly faded
away, aud through tbo web I could seo
other yellow spiders beyond, suggest?
ing that it was no illusion.
Whilo I stood wondering in tho hot
sun tbo spider solved tho mystery by
appearing again, first dimly, then liko
many spiders quivering in tho strong
light, finally resolving itself into one
hugo yellow fellow that moved liko a
pendulum to nnd fro und then stopped.
I touched it gently with a switch I hold,
whereupon it deliberately began to
swing its huge body, imparting to the
en tiro web a vibratory motion which
increased in rapidity until the body of
the spider began to grow fainter, and
iu a few moments became invisible. It
was all very simplo when nnderstood.
The spider when alarmed began to
swing, gradually increasing tho motion
uutil it disappeared or could not be fol?
lowed by tho eye. Thinking tho caso
might bo exceptional, I again touched
tho spider, nnd again it literally swung
itself out of sight.
Crawling beneath tho web, I con?
fronted tho next spider, which also was
yellow or saffron in color, with black,
velvetliko markings, hanging in tho
sun liko a great topaz, its web dotted
with tho remains of many feasts?emp?
ty skeletons of insects, bits of pearly fish
Bcales, perhaps dropped by some pass?
ing bird, a delicuto foather and a mot?
ley array of flies and other insect folk.
At first tho spider paid me scant atten?
tion, then I saw a slight convulsive
movement of its legs as it imparted the
first long swing to its hammockliko
web that put this wonderful life saving
device, for this it was, in motion. It
was the spider's defense aud protection
Certain birds undoubtedly preyed
upon the spiders, and this faculty of
mysteriously disappearing had on more
than ouo occasion served it well. I
could easily imagine tho astonishment
of tho bird when darting down to seize
tho plump and showy spider to find that
it had slipped away.
There was much in this street of yel?
low spiders to distract tho mind from
tho intense heat that poured down from
tho almost vertical sun. In the middle
of tho path, beyond a turn, grew a
clump of cactus, with hero und thero a
ripo fruit rich in tho purplo of full ma?
turity?a brilliant contrast to tho green
leaves. As I stood watching tho hermit
crabs dropping from the bushes and
scurrying away over tho sand I thought
I saw a ripe fruit of tho cactus move;
then, to my amazement, it passed di?
rectly out of sight, not after tho fash?
ion of the spiders, but by slipping around
ono of tho big leaves, I almost expected
to seo tho others follow it, but nothing
of tho kind occurred. I walked along
and placed myself in a position to see
behind tho broad, flat, pear shaped leaf.
Thero was tho purplo object, now mov?
ing cautiously around with tho evident
intention of keeping itself out of sight,
and then I saw that it was n crab, a
crab with a purplo back tho exact tiut
of thb fruit, whilo its general shape,
when the legs were tucked up beneath
tho body, mado tho crab a mimic of the
cnctuHtfruit, a protective resemblance so
perfect that the crab was safe from
sharp eyed enemies, and I slum Id have
passed it by had it remained quiet, but
the phenomenon of moving fruit at?
tracted my attention and led to its dis?
For some distance I followed this
street of spiders, creeping beneath the
webs when I could, aud everywhere
theso tricks of nabnro to protect tho de?
fenseless wcro apparent. Tho eggs of
tho gulls simulated tho suntl in color;
the littlo mantis, which oluug to tho
big cedar, was tho exnet tint of tho
leaves and defied detection until acci?
dentally brnBhcd off. Over all lifo in
tho secluded spot nature had thrown
her protecting mantle of mimicry.?
