WORDS ritOM TAI.MADGK.
"It is not so much what you for
mally teach j'our cli'Uleru as what
you sing to them. A hymn has
wings and can lly every whither.
One hundred and fifty years after
you are dead, and Old Mortality' has
worn out his chisel in recuttlng your
name on tho tombstone, your great
grandchildren will bo singing tho
song which this afternoon you sing
to your little ones gathered about
"Oh, if mothers only knew tho
power of thlssacretl spell, how much
oftener tho little ones would be gath
ered, and all our homes would chime
with, the songs of Jesus.
"We want counteracting influence
upon our children. The very mo
ment your child steps into the street
ho steps into tho path of temptation.
There are foul-mouthed children
who would like to besoil your little
ones. It will not do to keen vour
boys and girls in tho house and make
them house-plants; they must have
fresh air and recreation. God save
your children from tho scathing,
blasting, darning influence of tho
streets! I know of no counteracting
influence but the power of Christian
culture and example. Hold before
your little ones tho pure life of Jesus;
let that name be the word that shall
exorcise evil from their hearts. Give
to your instruction all tho fascination
of music, morning, noon and night;
let It bo Jesus, tho cradle song.
"This is important if your chil
dren grow up; but perhaps they may
not. Their pathway may bo short.
Jesus may be wanting that child.
Then there will bo u soundless step
in the dwelling, and tho youthful
pulse will begin to flutter and the
little hands bo lifted for help.
You cannot help. And a great agony
will pinch at your heart, and tho era
dlo will bo empty, and tho nursery
will be empty, and tho world will
bo empty, andyoursoulwlllboempty
No little feet standing on tho stairs.
No toys scattered on the carpet. No
quick following from room to room.
No strange and wandering ques
tions. No upturned face, with laugh
ing blue eyes, come for a kiss, but
only a grave, jmd a wreath of white
blossoms on tho top of It. Tho heav
enly Shepherd will take that lamb
safely anyhow, whether you have
been faithful or unfaithful; but
would it not have been plcasanter
If you could heaad from those lips
tho praises of Christ? I never read
anything more beautiful than this a
bouta chllds departure. Theaccount

hcrmother good-bye, sang her hymn,
turned her face to the wall, said her
little prayer, then died.
"Songs In tho night! Songs in the
night! For tho sick, who have no
one to turn the hot pillow, no one to
put tho taper on tho stand, no one to
put ice on tho temple, or pour out
the soothing anodyne, or utter one
cheerful word Yet songs In the
night! For tho poor who freeze In
the winter's cold and swelter In the
summer's heat, and munch the hard
crusts that bleed the soro gums, and
shiver under blankets that cannot
any longer bo patched, and tremble
because rent day Is como and thoy
may bo set out on the sidewalk.
"Christ is the everlasting song.
The very best singers sometimes get
tired; tho strongest throats some
times get weary, and many who
sang very sweetly do not sing now;
but I hope by tho grace of God we
will, after awhile, go up and sing
tho praises of Christ v here wo will
never bo weary. You know there
aro some songs that aro esicclally
appropriate for tho homo circle.
Thoy stir tho soul, they start tho
tears, thoy turn the heart In on It

tune has stopped like some cathedral
(Mill, which, long after tho tap of tho
biuizen tongue has ceased, keeps
throbbing on the air. Well It will
be a homosong In heaven, all the
sweeter because those who sang
with us In tho domestic circle on
earth shall join that great haruio-

Fears thai the Chinese Treaty will bo
Washington, March 10. It Is
tho universal opinion that tho new
Chinese treaty will not accomplish
tho purpose for which It Is designed,
and will not give ho relief which
tho people on tho Pacillc coast aro
entitled to expect. Nothing savo
tho absolute exclusion of all Chineso
laborers will meet tho emergency
with which for years past Call-
forlans have been obliged to contend.
Senator Mitchell, whoso bill
proposes to abrogate all treaty stipu
lations allowing the coming of
Chinese laborers to America, thinks
any such treaty as reported to bo
negotiated is simply a farce.
Representative Felton, whoso bill
proposed to prevent tho coming to
tho United States of Chinese laborers,
after giving nottco to tho Chineso
government of tho determination of
tho United States in tho premises,
thinks that tho proposed treaty will
bo entirely inadequate and in
suftlelent. Representative Morrow,
who, as a member of tho House
Committee on Foreign Afltdrs; Is
especially interested in antl-Chlncso
legislation, said In Ids opinion tho
now treaty will not accomplish
what Secretary Bayard thinks ll

Waiiash (Iud.), March 10 This
afternoon Mamie Armstrong, tho
girl who attempted suicide on Tues
day, died from tho effects of tho big
doso of arsenic. This morning tho
girl told her physician that sho
wanted to live- and avouUI never
again repeat the rash act, though at
tho time death seemed moro
desirable than to bo beaten and
cursed, which sho declared was tho
treatment sho received at tho hands
ot her brutal father. Last night,
when death seemed very near,
Mamie said good-bye to her lover
and slipped a ringjon his finger. Tho
parting was very allcctive. Arm

keeping away from tho bedsldo of
his dying daughter, and has not
seen her face from tho time that sho
took the poison. Reforo dying

Augusta, contrary to tho traditional
etiquette, which demands that sho
should not leave tho palace until
afterthefuneral, drove to Charlotten
burg to seo her son, It being Impossi
ble for him to como to Rcrlln to
visit her. The Emperor has decided
that his mother shall retain tho
title of "Empress Augusta" and not
bo styled "Dowager Empress," or
"Empress Mother." Tho meeting
between her son and herself was very
touching, as was also the visit paid
by Empress Victoria to her mother-in-law.
