Whcu the camels reached us, we turned to the new reglon on which we were enter Ing, which waa none other than the great anu terrlble wiiderness ln whtch Ino israei Itos wandercil nearlr fortv vears. It U the oplnion o( the latest Investlgators that the marcn irom J.g;il and tne encampinent about Sinai, altogether occupled not very ruuch over a year, when the host ol Israei moved northward, and ln a snccesston of nmrclien, which consumed nearlv another year, left tho monntalns and entered a more open reglon, which was one ot extreme deso- latlon. llero tbey dld not intend to remain, but nnly to pass through it on their way to the lano promised to thelr f athern, from which they advanced toward Canaan, bnt were driven back by the flerce ttlbea which in habited the country. Thns repulaed they withdrew, and pitched thelr tenta in the wiiderness, mofing from place to place, but never passlng its boundary, till the forty years were nearly completed, when thfy moved south to tbe Gulf of Akaba, and passing round the mountains, came up through Aloab, by the east side ol the Uead Sea, to Pisgah, where tloses dled, and from which Joshua led the tribes across the Jor dan. lietween the leaving Sinai and the entering Canaan there elapsed a period of aome tbirty-elght years, durlng which they wandered ln luls great and terrlble wilder ness, Uie tradillon of which is found ln the name, which lt bears to this day, of the desert of the wandericg. Uero then we are on the very scene of the camp of the Israei itt'a. Ilero the tabernacle was set up. and here God went before his people, as a pillar ot cioud by day and a piuaroi llre by nlght. as to in o cnaracter ot tuis region, we nad formed a paitlal idea of it, as its outer wall had been lone in view. When we stood on the top of Serbal or Sinai, and looked over and beyond the mountains, we saw away to the north a broad belt of sandy plain, which dlvided tne mountain region irom wnat lay beyond a belt bounded on the other side by a range of hills which could not but attract the eye, as they were of limestone, in sharp contrast with the red eranite of tbe Sinai group. Ixwking from a distance I had snp- posed uns upiand region to be a rast pia- teau. iow uiat we are on lt we nnd lt to be Indeed a rlateau, but not unbroken, but crossed by ranges, not as grand as the moun- -i . i' : r l - -1 .nt : i 1 1 . helcrht. between which are broad srjaces of desert, furrowed by water courses. acarcely had we left the edge of the cliff before we dropped down Into one of the gullies by whicn this va.it tract Is seamed and scarred, and kept niovlng on from one to another, as we hai travAraeii a auccession 01 wauya lu golug to Slnal. These smaller hollows worn ut streams, like the allluents of a river, finally merge Into the Wady el Arish fwhich we entered In the afternoon), which is to the desert of tho wanderlng what the Wady es Scheikh is among tbe mountains of eranite aud sandstone, and which bears the great name of the Hiver of Egypt a term which as used in the Itible, does not deslgnate the Nlle, but this niighty wady, which keera Us course to the sea, coming out near Ueza, and formlng the boundary between Kgypt and I'alestine. Xow that we were ln the reglon of pure limestone, which rcflected the rays of tne sun, we felt aeain tbe clare and the heat of our first days on the desert. llut after all, to what ever devices one may resort to protect him self from blindness or suustroke, be cannot whollv escare tbe dazzling glareof tbe burn ing heat, and has need dally to offer the prayer that the aun may not einite bim by ilay nor the moon by nlght. Taking tbis intenso elaro and heat with the utter desola- tion of the country, we can understand how the Israelites sbould have regarded it as in deed a trreat and terrible wlldernees. No wonder tbat they fainted, and that their hearts uled wltniu inem. lne penoa oi wanderlng was nearly forty years. That is more than the lifetime of a generatlon. In that tlme old men died, and young men grew old j wives and chlldren were buried in the sands of the desert. What a trial for the wlsdom and the firniness of their great leader to keep any control ot two, or per haps three, milllons of people, who were sometimes almost starvlng, and often in a state of mutiny I Moses hlmself was some times ready to despair, uul ne wundrew luto tbe wiiderness, and aione ne kneit upon the rocks or sands, and cried to heaven for help; and then returned, with newcourage ln his nean, to inspire tne iaim ana strenethen the weak, and to lead them on, untll at last he brought them to the promised land. Had l not reaxon to say. wben loos Inrv rlnwn uoon the field of Itenhidlm. that " the more f see of the desert the more the miracle of the l.iodua grows upon uie V And as we advance sun luriner ln our jour ney lt wlll grow upon us to tne end.

Compulsory educatiou Is not enough, be, cause educatiou in the home atmosphere of vice wlll oniy give impeius and snarpen these lnleliecta to rue to gianc wicKetines. Ther must be taken away from their ouvi- ronment. The malaria of crime can only be checked and cured by a cbange of local Ity. The state and even national govern ment must becoine eodfather to these fore- doomed reproductlons ol vlclous lile. 1'atrl otism and fatherhood are so nearly allied ln our ways of thinking and feeling that we are not biiockou at me government s uccom Ing cuardlan to thls vagrant forin of life. Weuave an example ol its beneficence at Carlisle Itarracks, in its care and culture of the chlldhood of savages. We wonder that we had not thought of it long ago. It lay like a jewel in the bosoui of Christianity from the beginning. Xow this is what we need for the wastes of our great clties. Let the hand ot tbe eovernment lift them from the slutus, and soon there will be no more placea ln our great clties where virtue and charity daro not make pllgrimages unless guarded by thepollce. In Sweden tbe walfs, and street Arabs, and neglected chlldren re rescued bv tbe covernment as lts own, ou the ground that the parents have loat tbeir rlght by their neglect. inese are educated at government cxpense. When an intelli eent American asked ln wonder how tln eovernment of Sweden could allord to edu cate so many, he waa as quickly told tbat the government could far less afTord not to educate them. The form of our eovern- ineut, wlth euffrage almost unlversaT, must not perinit Ignorance aud crime to exist, or they will, like bllud Saroson, pull down the puiars where our instituiions tesi.i-resot lerian. rU'Untf up the Cable. The laylug of telegraphlo cablea is now so common tbat the deacriptlon of the ma- chinery used for picklug up a broken one, will be read wltn luterest. n consisis oi a rope about an iuch and a nuarter ln dlatn eter, made from the twisted strauds of the strougeat liemp wlth luterwoven wlres of flneateel. The rrannel at theend Is merelv a solid ehaft of Iron aome two feet long, aud welglilng about one hundred pounds, and prolonged Into slx blnnt hooks which much resemble the partly cloaed flngers of the human hand. In plcklng up the cablo In deep water, tbe Minla, aftor roachlng the waters near the break, lets out her rope and grapnel, then takes a course at rlght angles to lne cable and atsomo distance from the fracture, so that tho broken end may not elip through the grapnel. Tho grapnel ropo Is attachcd to a dynamometor, which ex actly measures tho straln ou the rone. and shows uuerrlngly when the cable has been caught. If the grapnel fouls a rock the straln rlses very suddenly to a hlgh polntj oui me exact weigm ot tne cable belng known, the dynamometer slgnals br the steady rata of increase lts hold on the cable far below. The ease and certalnty wlth whtch cabtes are picked up In Ihtae days, Is I amszing. A whlle ago one of the llnes of of the Anglo-Amerlcancompany was caught wlthout trouble at a depth of two and a nuarter nilles near the mlddle of the At lantlc. Captaln Trott of the Mlnia, who has won great fame for his skill and In genuity ln cable matters, but recently picked up the French cable one hundred etghty milrs off St. Pierre, and in four hours from the time the grapnel was let go had the cable spliced and in worklng condltion. The spllcing Is a work of groat dellcacy and skill, and when accomplished by tralned flngers the "spliced" part can acarcely be distingulshed from the maln cord. So rapid has been the Improvement In perfectlng the mooern caoie tnat tno reslstance to the electrlc current has been reduced to one nuarter what it was twenty years ago, whlle the duplex system of sendlng and rocelving meaaages doubles tho capacity of every new cable lald. (Ilnilstonc. The seat of Mr. Oladstono was never so firm as at present. Though restlng on the popular wlll he enlovs a more absoluto con trol of Ilrltain than Iiismark does of Uer- many. Though the most radlcal ruler that lvncland has ever had and the author of changes that have been little less than revo lutlonary, his administratlon, both at home and abroad, has been a splendid success. In the face of the most formldable Irish movement that has been known stnce the days of O'Connell, he has eucceeded ln sup- pressing iiwiessness, bringing order out ot chao?, dlaarmlng or converting the land league, aatlsfying Irish discontent, and bringing over the most trusted Irish lead ers to a support of his policy. The Irish land act has destroyed landlord despotism, and for the first tlme withln tbe period of modern history the Irish have a chance for prosperity ln Ireland. Mr. Oladntone has ruieu tne resiiesa island wun a nrm nana, but shown tbat be waa its real frlend by such legislation as tbe disestablishment of the Irish church, and the land biil. In ad- dition he proposes, whenever a plan is aereed upon that fullv malntalns the union of Ireland with the emplre and supports the supremacy of the Hritlsh government, to grant the Irish a local self-government liku that of the American states. In addl tlon to the complete triumph of his Irish poncy, tne rigor anu success oi nis lorelgn admintatration has wonderfully aroused llritish enthuslasm. The effect of these united causes is that the opnosition ln par liament is powerless and Mr. Gladstone is able to move on resistlessly to effect the changrs that he has long purposed. The " Cloture blll, regulatlng proceedlnes in parllament, and repeallng the cumberaome and obstructlve methods of ceuturies, has reached lts last itages, and its passage wlll reuder it pcssible for the adminlstration to move lorwaru ln spite ol a lactlous mlnor itv. If Mr. f!ladstone had Ipn vearn mnrn of vigor he would complete the work he has already eiiectea ln part, ot making a new Kneland, but the scepter must soon fall from his aged grasp, and it is currently re ported that he intends to retire from public life at the close of thls winter's eesaion of parliament. He could never resicrn his oflV ces at a better time for his own fame. Christian Evangelist. X Xolable Aiinlrcrsnry. f ew davs slnce Sweden celebrated the two hundred ilttletli anniversary of the battle of j.uien, lu wnicn nergreaiBtuero, uustavus ilolphus, won a Kreat victory over t allen stein and tbe Cathollc Germans, and per Iahed in the arms of victory. Though the battle was lougnt on iierman soll and was a victory over the ereatest German captaln oi tnat age oi oioou, nu i ioieatant uer- many has looked upon tbe victory as one of tueirown. l ne great awede lnvaded uer. many, not for conquest, but to deliver tbe l'rotestant states from the terrible load of Catholic oppression. The thirtv years' war waa a reiigious coninct. me awedes may well reeard Gustavus Adolphus with pecu- liar pride as a national hero, and the Ger mans as tbe greatest l'rotestant llberator. llls me was one ol warlare, and be brought to 11 tbe nualutes ol a great soldler, lnvln ciblecourage, remarkable ekill,andnewand superior metnods ot hi;htlng, bealdes tbe re ligious impulse, amounting almost to fanat icism, which inspired bim and his armles, lle inherited tbethrouein 1011, and with it a war ulth the Poles and Husslans, bestdes a loni;-standinc boatllitv wlth Denmark. He soon drove out the Husslans, humlliated tho I'oles and, at a later period, entered Gerraany as the champlon of the l'rotestant Btates and grappled with Austrla. Atter a seiies of splendid successes he ended his uie, but not ms work, on tbe tield ot l.ut zen. It Beems probable that, had it not been for tlie splendor of his abilities, tbe l'rotestant states of Germany would bave been stamped out under the iron tread of Wallenstein aud tho Austrlan armies.

" " Well," sald Mias Patty with a Bnlff no type can express, and Sarah went on : " So week before last Aunt Slmons wrlt and sald she was comin' out to Btay a day or two before she went back south, and she was goln' to fetch Joe, that's her eldest, along wlth her ; she wantcd for to bave us meet her to the statlon, but ahe sald she ahouldn't comelf lt ralned; she'a gotdread ful weak lungs; butehe'd telegrapb lf she wa'n't coming. Well, Wednesday morntng, the day she sot to come, it did rain, sure enough, and, seeing there was the donation party to be got up, I sided my work away early and walked over to the Center for I knew I sbould find all the folks I'd got to see to home. I'd just got ready to start for home about noontime, and I bethought my self to step Into the postoflice, for I knew there'd be tbe mall for the creamery, so I got a double handful of letters and papers and set my face toward home, when who should come up but Tom in the buggy. "'Get in 1' says ho, "I'm agoin' to the statlon.' '"What for?' says I. " Why,' says he, ' they hain't sent no tel egraph, so they're coming.' "'But lt rains,' says I, 'and AuntiSI mons sald she shouldn't come if it ralned.' " ' Well,' says he, ' I obey orders and break owners : sbe sald Bho'd telecrraph if they wa'n't comin' ; and how do you know but lt didn t raln tnere t " So I eot in and put the mail down into the seat, and he driv like Jehu, forwe heered the traln whistle ; and says I, ' Ob, Tom I don't drive up tbe hill to the statlon. I'm so afraid Jenny'll be scared.'" "lle lauehed a little. '1 11 bet she wouldn't be balf bo scared as you,' sald he ; 'but 111 leave you at tbe foot of the hill, and lf tbey come I'll holler down to you, and 11 1 get in and go up to t other statlon, and put em into tbe back that waits there, for there can't four gct into this buggy; and you drive along up to that statlon and then I'll put you into the back witb Aunt Simons, and I'll take Joe along o' me in the buggy. So aayin' be jumped out, for we was there, and run up just in tlme to catch the train. I didn't bave a thought that they'd be there, but they was, and he called out, 'They're here, drive along.' I knew 'twas theqalck est way to take the road alongslde the track, but the Tuck train was due, and Jen is sklt tish, but I thought I'd ought to, bo I drove rleht alone: there wasn't no traln. but right in the road, where I couldn't turn nor back, 1 see two loose horses and II there Is tnlng that puts lightenln Into Jenny lt 8 loose horses. I tell you the shivers run down my back, but I knew the only chance was to go so fast sbe wouldn't thlnk about side shows; so I jist laid the whtp onto ber, and she sprung so and went by them horses quicker I Well, the back was golng over the bridge but I catched up wltb it, and Joe he got out wlth Thomas and took the buggy and I got ln with Annt. Tom had got to go up street to get a can for the creamery. I called out to him as he went off. " ' Look out for your mall on the seat, and we drove along. llut we hadn't gone a half mue belore lom be came tearing along and stopped the back. t nere aia you put tne mau r eaya ne. " ' Why, on the seat of the buggy,' says I. " ' No you didn't I ' says he; ' there wasn't ncthing there but papers.' " ' 1 guess l gave you the letters then. I sort of thought I did,' says I. " ' v eii, l naven t got em, any way, says he. ' I.ook in all your pockets, Sally, they aln't lu raine.' So I looked and looked, but I hadn't a letter. I knew I hadn't, but I looked to suit bim. Then I thought how I drove by tbe side road, and I told him I guessed they'd jolted out of the buggy when I driv so fast. " ' Dear me I says he, ' I must have those letters to-day. l've got to; I'll go back over the side road and sce if I can bear any thing about em . bo ne turned round. I tell vou. I felt real bad I I couldn't thlnk anyway in the world what I did with tbem letters, and I see he was worried to death. After we got to tbe house, aud Aunt Slmons was fixln' berself up stairs, be drove up with Joe. "'Sary,' sald he, 'do look over your pockets agaln for tbem letters; I expect there was a three huudred dollar check in one of 'em, and we can't allord to lose it' I was luit ready to cry, I tell you, but I overlooUed the pockets again; they wan't there, and he aaid there wasn't any sign or heariu' of 'em on the road. I felt as though I should gtve up when he turned and went out of the door, but just as be swung the gite to, he hollered out ; " ' Sally I Silly I ' and I run. ' I cave I ' says he, laughing ; 'here they be Iu my own pocket ; you dld give 'em to me.' " Sure enough I did, but he put 'em Into a pocket he didn't use for letters ordinarily, so he never looked there I aud there wan't no check at all In auy one on 'em." "I guess you was mad?" queried Mlss ratty. " Well I was a little stirred up, I don't deny ; I Bet rlght down and cried quite a spell." "Wa'n't that real mean?" Mrs. Peek asked of tho audieuco with a tone of fine scorn. "Did thee wisb then thee'd never seeu thy husband ? " asked Aunt Marcla of Silly. Tne anxlous face flushed and the sad eyes sparkled. " Aunt Marcla, I should not know how to llve wlthout Tom any way In thls mortal world I" And the clear voice broke down as if tbe thought of such a contingency was too much. Aunt Marcia suiiled. "I expect there are faults ln all human creatures. 'Male and female created he them,' though; and we can't set out greatly to better tbe Ijrd'a plans.
