OUn of the Objeets of 9he Persnetleas In the Russian imnpre. The nam. Iitundist is a little repellent. Rt to as senseles as the words Quaker, Methodist and other terms that have come to popularly designate varylng forms of Christian worship, says Poultnsy Bigelow in Harper's Magazine. Stunde is the Ger. man word for a period of instruction, and of itself hints at this puritan community. Over a large part of southern Russla asi to be found isolated colonies of Lutheran Germane, whose fathers were attracted into the country during the less century by the promis not merely of land, but of local liberty as well. 'they rapidly made anoasis of culture in the desert of ussala srfdom, and the traveler who suddenly stambles upon a German village in Rustsa reoogntaes it immediately by the cleanliness of the streets, the substantial character of the houses, and, above all, by the intelligent character of the people. It is a crime in Russia for a protestant to read the Bible to an orthodox; it is a crime for a Russian to give up being orthodox; it is even a crime for a Protestant congrega t(on to allow an orthodox Russian to be present. When I left Russia, in the fall of 1891, eighty Protestant clergymen were under sentence to Siberia, having been de clared parties to the crime of preaohing the gospel. The Russian peasantry in general are dis posed to hate Germans, as all shiftless peo ple dislike thoes that are thrifty and suo cessful. Bntamongst these were many upon whom German example made a deep im pression. Some of them began to inquire into the secret of German snoeses, and, as we may readily believe, received all possi ble encouragement from their Lutheran fellow subjects. They began to feel ashamed of habitual drunkennesl they be gan to think that children should learn to read and write. They noted the fact that Germans worked hard six days in the week, kept away from the brandy bottle, and sat their children to school. When the Russian peasant got thus far he could not stop there. He noticed that the German clergyman did not get drunk, dii not go about in dirty olothes repeating incoherent words, but that he reaid to his people from the Bible, and encouraged them to read that book at home. At this point the peasant ceased to be orthodox. As soon as he commenced to read the Bible in secret, to unite in prayer with others, and to ignore church festivals, he became an object of active persecnaution on the part of the clergy. Twenty years ago there were known to be about 1,000 Stundists in all tussia. To-day there are probably 250,000, although it is impossible to be certain on such a point. The bulk of them are scattered between the Black sea and Poland, though their Puritan doctrine finds an echo in every province of the empire. They are a vital Christian force, and are doing vastly more to revolutionize Russia than the nihilists. They are spreading pop ular education amongstt theclas that needs it most, and are starting inquiry in the minds of people whose fathers never ques tioned the divinity of the czar. The Russian government could afford to ignore these people for many years, espeo ially as the police reported them as uni formly industrious, honest, sober and prompt in the payment of taxes. The church, however, had to protect itself, for Stundists held one doctrine that could never be forgiven-denial of orthodoxy. 'Non-conforming peasants were dragged from their homes, charged with heresy. looked in jail, flogged, tortured, sent to die loathsome deaths in pestilential mines-all to no purpose. The Russian suffers cheer fully for his religion, and in the record of the clerical courts it is rare to learn of a victim betraying a friend. The same loyalty that makes the Russian soldier march for days on bad food, that makes him reckless of danger, and that keeps him on his sentry beat until he freezes to death-this loyalty comes out with equal force when he meets judicial torture at the hands of the orthodox clergy. The Russian government is fighting Stundists and Skoptzi with the same well worn weapons of old-fashioned perseen tions, and no one who knows Ruseia need be surprised that Protestantism is making enormous strides in consequence.

In promulgating esoteric cogitations or articulating superfioial sentimentalities and philosophical or psychological obser vetions. beware of platitudinous ponder eeity. Let your statements possess a clsari led conciseness, compacted comprehensi bleness, coalescent consistency and a concentrated cogency. Eschew all con glomerations of flatulent garrulity, jejune babblement and asinine affectations. In trying to impress upon :others the superior ity of the Wisconsin Central lines. andwhy you and so many others use this thorough fare from ft. Paul and Minnsooias and 89aluth and Ashland to Milwaukee, Chicago *d points east and south, it is not neces gsary to use jawbreakers. Let your exter. poraneous desoantings and unpremeditated expatiations have intelligibility and vera eicanr vivacity, without rhodomontade or thrasonical bombuast. Bedulonuly avoid all all polysyllabic profundity. peittaceonus vaco ulty, ventriloquial verbosity and vandilo quent varidity, shun double entendre, prurient jucosity and pestiferous profanity, oPbsecurent or apparenut. In other words, talk plainly, naturally, sensibly, and truth fully say the Wisconsin Central lines is the route, and that ends it. Opportualty.

B9 Doses Taken at Once Did Not Kill, but Succeeded in Curing Him. -ohn Turk, Casoade, Montana, gook 89 loaes of a so-oalled "San Francisco Quack's YIedioine," at one., and was not killed, se promised by rival doctors. In Septem ber, 1889, he called on Dr. A. 0. Stoddart, visiting physician for Dr. Liebig & Co., . Webig World Dispensary, San Francisco and Butte City who had offices for two weeks at the Merohants Hotel, Helena. Mr. Turk had suffered for years with Rheumatism, Impurity of Blood and effects Df mercurial Salivation. He had four of the beet physicians in Montana attend him, sad they failed to rblieve him. Dr. Stod dart examined him, sent his preescriptions to Liebig Dispensary, Ban Franciseo, to be prespred. After Dr. Stoddart left, Mr. lark met the local doctors and told them what he had done. They laughed at him, and said "that San Francisco quack would till him." He was so frightened that when she medicine from San Francisco came he put the bottle upon a shelf at his house, 107 Park street, Helena, and it stood neg leoted until Deeember (nearly three months) while Mr. Turk suffered day and aight, had not slept half an hour at a time n years.
