upon learning that the Lord had decided
to grant the request Samuel at once nave
himself to the work of raakine the selec

and x. The ninth chapter opens with an
account of Saul's genealogy, (v. 1, 2); re
cords the incident of the lost asses (v. 3-10);
the meeting with Samuel, who entertains
Saul and discloses God'a purposes for him
(v. 11-24): tho anointing (v. 25-chap. x 8); the
confirmatory siens (v. IMG); and Saul's pub
lic election! v. 17-27). Our lesson discusses

Hew York Independent.
It is a good thing in the rush of this busy
age, when man feels that it is his own
strong right arm or finely tempered brain
that gains him his soul's desire, it is a good
thing to remember that there is a God and
that ne has something to say about a Hairs.
Providence is a word wo are too apt to
light nnless it refers to a city in New
England. God does foresee your course in
life as easily as vou do yourself, and prob
ably more so. lie will not make ice in New
York Harbor in summer to' please your
prayers: but who knows what lie does not,
nay, will not do when He isdecently asked!
As any other personal friend is apt to take
an inteiest in a man's career, so God, per
sonally perhaps through the agency of
Christ, will plan for and help any one in
his life, though the favored ono may be
ignorant of the fact. Saul was chosen and
'cared for by the Lord long before ho sus
pected it. ?
It is an interesting bit of history that
though the later Jews paid excessive atten
tion to ecclesiastical dresi. Samuel's attire
mnst have been exceedingly simple and un
assuming if $aul did not, at lirst glance,'
recognize him as the chief priest of the na
tion. It is in some respects a healthful
sign that ministers are content to dress as
other people aud do not affect professional
clothes. They are to bo men among men,
eminent not for their garments but for
high qualities such as marked the life of
their Master. Affectation and sanctimon
iousness in dress are as much to bo be
wailed nowada3'8, when decorations and
badges are the order, as parsimony of
spirituality.
Saul was led by stages to wonder and
aspire. His attention was turned from his
homely search to the "desirable in Israel."
It is often worth while in polite conversa
tion to strike a high plane, even the spirit
ual. It may not bo the thing at that- mo
ment to ask a man tho condition of his
eoul; but there is no more stimulative top
ic than the philosophy and comparison of
religions. Thclife of Christ can be dis
cussed and treated so that a mind sluggish
with ball games, yacht races and prize
tights shall be renerved for a better con
test. The supreme question r.s to who
shall rule pour body and soul, whether it
b your employer, phvsieinn, your ii it-mi
or the touch ot Christ's facin.'iting life, is
enough to btir the most iuactivo to con
versation and perhaps conversion.
After all, Saul had a good spice of modes
ty iu hiru to start with. "Am 1 not a JJen
iainite!" The recognition of the fact that
he was the least made him the better fitted
to become the greatest. Modesty docs no
harm. It, too, is a Christian virtue. True
modesty need not carry a man to the excess
of self-depreciation.
The housetop in Eastern houses was a se
cluded spot in spite of it publicity. A con
versation alone with a good and great man
is often an epoch in a common man's career.
If men who were eminent for their good
ness ould search out opportunities oitener
to speak with what are called "lower
classes," one at a time, man to man, and not
the interview, tho spiritual etlect might bo
prodigious on either side.
Samuel was alone with Saul during the
coronation ceremony. Even Saul's intimate
servant was sent on, and undoubtedly he
"was devoured with curiosity as are the
majority of his guild. It is very natural
and human to want to see everything that
is going on. Three thousand men travel a

sumed and curiosity unsatisfied running
after celebrities or great fairs than can be
imagined. New York swarmed with sight

Feeing the pageant they hoped to witness.
"Does it payf" is a question that is asked
afterward in all solemnity when the pocket
book is empty and dyspepsia as a mild re
sult sets in. One test of character is to
hold up on the rein and wait when the mad
rush begins. Two couts invested in a news
paper generally gives you more than you
could possibly see, and the great gain comes
in attending to business at home and doing
a nobUf- work, and saving valuable time,
all of which would be lost in profitless
gadding. Enough calls come to snatch us
from the duty of life without taking every
plausiblo excuse to get up and go.

It is a sage remark of Dr. Johnson, "that
whatever withdraws us from tho power of
our senses, whatever makes tho past, the
distant and the future predominant over
the present, advances us in the dignity of
thinking beings." The man who lives
mainly within the limits of his physical
senses, certainly lives on a small scale, and
at a low level, as compared with his possi
bilities. Independent.
BITS OF FASHION.
Straight skirts, gathered or pleated
waists and full sleeves increase daily in
still greater favor. .
An appropriate brooch for the summer is
a tiny canoe of gold, with oars and anchor
trailing over the side.
Directoire redingotes of beautiful French
challie are worn over skirts of white watered
silk, and llowcr-brocaded Empire gowns of
white mohair have plain full skirts trimmed
with gold or silver galloon.
Rich embroidery is tho rule in the fronts
of tea gowns. These fronts aro made of the
softest materials, and are heavily em
broidered, giving weight and gracefulness
to the drapery. Tho effect is exceedingly
handsome.
Following a feature in French gowning
that is very prevalent this year, many
fashionably attired women are wearing
black trimmings on colored gowns to the
extreme of having black sashes, vests and
full bishop or mutton-leg sleeves on pink,
reseda, tan or strawberry dresses that aro
trimmed with black net, lace or ribbon.
Jewelry being again in high vogue, all
sorts of new designs and devices are being
brought out. For those who are not fortu
nate enough to have any heirlooms or old
fashioned jewelry they may be considered
fortunate in a secondary sort of way if they
can have as much of the beautiful and
artistic modern jewelry as they desire.
The popularity of sailor hats is still so
great that milliners both here and abroad
are using these simple flat-crowned,
straight-brimmed shapes for airy models in
net and tulle. Thus, black tulle is shirred
on wires in sailor-shape, and trimmed with
loops of the tulle and white or tinted roses.
White point d'esprit dotted with black is
made up in like manner.
Colored shoes do very well for a change
and to complete a suit of one color entire,
but for real elegance, and neat and lad
like appearance, thero is.no foot-covering
that can compare with a perfect-fitting
shoe of tine black French kid. It suits all
styles of dress, all occasions, and makes
the foot look trimmer and smaller than a
shoe of any other description.
Blouse waists with belts all around, and
basques with blouse fronts and girdles are
favorite bodices on imported' dresses of
light textiles, such as gauze, lace, crepa
line, India silks, and the soft, transparent,
old-fashioned lawns and muslins that have
been revived by leading French modistes.
The blouse-basques are a compromise be
tween plain and full waists, and are found
very generally becoming. They appear up
on dresses both simple and ornate.
The handsome Freuch poplins and mo
hairs are scarcely to be distinguished from
the soft-ribbed bengalines and other corded
silks of their nature. While retaining their
old merit of durability, the manufacturers
have succeeded in imparting a beautiful
luster to the surface, and the fabric being
rendered much more soft and pliant, tlio
requirements of the present styles in the
making up of theso materials are wholly
met.
Smart little summer jackets in various
fabrics accompany the pleated 6hirt-waists
so affected this summer. , Theso waists are
cool, comfortable, and very chic upon a
slender, youthful figure. .They have a
turn-down collar and sailor tie, are fastened
with small gold studs, and are prettiest
wheu made of white China silk laid in
broad pleats, though the fashion admits of
waists in endless variety, white linen,
striped percale, serge, foulard, chainbrey
and llannel. All can be worn in turn, with
occasionally the addition of a sash to
match.

A BRICKBAT BOOMERANG.
Another Case in Which a Democratic Gun
Was Fired Too Soon.
Iowa State Register,
A short time ago the Democratic free
trado papers raised a chorus of wails over
what they called Republican inconsistency.
They charged the present administration
with having sent to England for several
million brick, to be used in constructing the
Congressional Library at Washington. They
proceeded to figure up the loss to American
industries by having these brick made in
England instead of giving tho job to home
industries. !And so they mado a truo bill,
as they supposed, against the party of pro
tection, lint like a great many other Demo
cratic arguments, this was also founded on
ignorance. A moment's inquiry into tho
facts would have spared them the unhappy
blunder they have made.
They have learned now that the admin
istration has had nothing to do with the
purchase of those brick, either directly or
indirectly. The contract was made with
General Casey, of the engineer corps of the
armj who was appointed Chief of Engin
eers by President Cleveland, and was given
exclusive control of the erection of the Li
brary Building, by the last. Democratic
House of Representaives. When the ap
propriation bill was before the House, some
Sood Democrat, anxious to have the Presi
ent's appointee receive a good assignment,
prepared, a clause giving him exclusive
charge of the expenditure of money for
this building, and the accommodating
House inserted the clause.
So it was very natural that a gentleman
whose appointment and assignment were
brought about as his were, should send to
England for brick, instead of patronizing
home industries. Therefore, if the Demo
crats want to scold anybody for this for
eign purchase, let them blame Mr. Cleve
land for appointing General Casey chief of
the engineer corps, and then blame tho
Democratic House of Representatives for
the legislation that made it possible for
him to ignore American industries in this
way. Tho fond brickbat, argument turns
out to be a brickbat boomerang.
Miniature Painting.
Boston Transcript.
It will probably be a surprise to many to
learn that at Charleston. S. C, the aft of
miniature portrait painting is practiced
with very happy results by ladies. The
city, in fact, enjoys a distinction for this
art over all other American communities.
It is an inheritance, or a belonging, rather,
which has been noted as peculiarly Charles
ton's for more than a hundred years. Tho
Magazine of Art traces the history of tho
culture there since tho days of Thomas
Coran, an Englishman, who came to this
country in early youth and was in his man
hoc l identified with Charleston. Edward
G. Malbone, his friend Washington Allston,
Andrew Robertson, a Scotchman, aud
Charles Frazer are named as tho promoters
iu that citv of a school of miniature paint

the ladies. The Magazine of Art declares
that their work there is of superior quality
