want a new religion, but tin old leligion
applied in all possible directions
CHOOSING THE CITY'S SITE
"Do you know how the site of the
ancient eitj of Jerusalem was chosen?
There were two brothers, who had adjoin
ing farms The one brother had alargefam
ilj, the other hid no familj The brother
with the large familj said: 'There is my
brother with no familj, he must be loncH
and I will trj to cheer him up, and I
i ill take -ome of the she ii us from in field
in the night time and set them o er on his
farm, and a nothing about it '
"The other brittle r said Mj brother has
a large familj and it is crj difficult for
him to gctnlting.and I wUltakeome oftlie
sheaves from rnj farm in Hie night time
and set them over on his farm and saj
nothing about it '
'bo the work of transference went on
niht after night, and night after night,
but cer morning things "-ucnied to bt
ju-t as the weie, for though sheaves
had been siibitrac'ed from eacli farm,
sheaves had also Ken add d, and the
brothers were perplexed and could not
ta&.r-tand Rut one night tlie brothers
happened to nit et while making this gen-erou-
tniiisftrenee.and the spot w litre thej
met was o sacred that It was theen as
the site of thecitv of Jeniaicm
"If that tradition should prove un
founded, il will neverthela-s stand as a
beautiful allegoij sttting fotth the idea
that wherever a kindlv and generous and
lo.ing act isjperf"rmed, that is the spot
fit for sonioTl'inpIi of commemoration
PUACTJICAli RELIGION.
"I have often sjiokcn to jou about
faith, but this morning I speak to jou
about -works, for "faith without works
is dead ' I think ou will agree with me
in the statement that the great want
of this world is more practical religion.
"We wantipracucal religion to go into
all merchandise It will supervise the
latitlling of Rofads It will not allow a
man to say that a thing was made in
one factory when it was made in another.
It will not allow the inerch int to say
tli.it watch was manufactured in Geneva,
Sw itrerland, w hen it w as manufactured m
Massachusetts.
'It .vill not allow the merchant to saj
that wine came from Madeira when it
came from California.
"All' inj Inends, if a man hath gotten
his estate w rongfullj and he build a line
of hospitals and universities from here to
Alaska, he cannot atone for it. After
awhile, tins man who has been getting a
'corner' in wheat, dies, and then Satan
gets a 'corner' in hun. He goes into a
greit, long, Black Tridav rherr- is a
'break' in tlie market. According to "Wall
street p irl.ince, he wiped others out, and
now heis himself wiped out N'o collator Us
on -w lilcli to make a spiritual loan Eternal
defalcation.
Rut this practical religion will not only
rcctifj all merchandise. it will ulsorectifj
all mechanism and all toil A time wil
come w hen a man w ill w ork as faithf ull j bj
the Job as lie does bj tlie day You saj"
vv hen a thing is sllchtmglv done, 'Oh, th it
was done by the job'
"You can tell bj the swiftnes-or slov -noss
with which a hackmni drives whether
he is hired bj the hour or by the excursion
If he Is hired bj the hour he drives "crj
slowlv, so as to make as many hours, as
possible.
"If he is hired by the ccurs- on he
whips up the horses so as to get around
and get another customer All stvles of
work have to be inspected Ships in
spected, horses inspected, machineVj in
spected Boss to watch the Journejman.
Capit ilit coming dow u unexpectedl y to
watch the boss Conductor of a citj cii
sounding the punch bell to prov e his honesty
as a p. sengtr hands to him a cl pped
nickel All tilings' must be watched and
inspected.
THE CHRIST LAW.
"I tell you, my friends, the law of
man will never rcctifj these things It
will be the all pervading influence of the
practical religion of Jesis Christ that will
make the change for the better
"We want this practical religion not
onlj to take hold of w liat are called tlie
lower classes, but to take hold of what arc
called the higher classes The trouble is
that people have an idea thej can do all
their religion on Sundij with hjinn book,
and prajer-book, and liturgj , and some of
them sit in churih rolling up thur ejes .is
though the were ready lor translation,
when their Sibh ith is bounded on all sides
bj an Inconsistent life, and while jou are
expecting to come out from under their
arms the wings of an angel, there come out
from their forehead the horns of a be.ist
"There h is got to be a new departuie
in religion I do not saj a new religion
Oh. no, but the old religion brought tti new
appliances In our time we have had the
daguerreotvpe, and the ambrotvpe, and
the pl'otograph; but it is the same ol 1
sun, and these arts are onlj new nppli
ances of tlie old sunlights 3o this glor
ious Gospel is just what we want to pho
tograph the image of God on one soul,
and daguerreotjpe it on another soul
Not a new Gospel, but the old Gospel put
to new work.

Alt. John 1'ajne, who lor a long time
was an agent tor the fcocittj for the
Prevention or Ciiultv to Annuals of this
citj, can boast of liming in his rooms at
No 7011 G street noithw est the onlj live
moiiLOOhe in the United States, possibly
theonlv oi e ever brought to ihiscountrj
Mr I'ajne rectntlj returned rrom the
island or Jamaica, where he spent mrinj
jears of his cmlj life in the British mili
tarj service, and brought the little strangei
with him Of the introduction or tlicmon
gcose into the island and the marvelous
waj In which thej haveiiiultiphidaud over
run the whole-ountrj, Air I'ajne told an
JnU'rcb.ting btoij to a Times u.au vestur
daj' After an eventful retrospect of a long
and adventurous life, Air I'ajne said
"Even when 1 left Jamaica fiftj jears
ago the island was suf fe ring fi om a si otlrge
of rats They swarmed over the whole
face of the countrj, and as their numbers
increased thej began to distioj the cane
in the rields and In the mills, and to In
Test the sugar houses to such an extent
that thej destrojed mill ons of doll irs'
worth of propcrtj annmllj The colonial
government took cognizance of the
desperate state of affairs, and after trj
ing other remedies, finallj determined to
introduce the mongoose, the animal that
in India and nil over the far East is made
almost a J ouschold pet In order that Its
inborn enmitj tonearlj evirv othertreatiire
that creeps oi swims or flies or ruiib mav
to some extent keep down the plague of
ver.nin that lnr stb thee countries
' Well, thev brought in the mongoose anil
It cleaned out the rats The Piper of
llamclm himself did not make a iha.ier
sweep than did these little grav beggar
in their relentless crusade Not a rat
was left, from the ere it of the RIuc Mount
ains to the margin of the sea.
"But when the rats were gone the
snakes and all the man forum of re ptile
life in the island began to dlmlsh In num
bers; everj thing that laid an egg on the
ground allig Uors sn ike-, terrapins. ground
birds of all kinds, all were exterminate d
as a result of the buej, ceaseless, sleep
less hatred of this, creature. . .
"Then as the tribes of the mongoose
waxed more and fnbre numerous, and their
natural prej decreased as a result of
their inroads, they began to acquir- new
habits and tastes, which1 ,wcre neither
pleasant nor profititlble-to tho-e who had
bi ought them intd the island At the
present time, it is,'nf mooted question in
Jamaica as to which is prefera'ile, the
mongoose or the hnfmals he has exter
minated ' Not .1 chicken, can be raised on the
Island except behind wire screens c'ose
enough to exclude the. slender botlv of this
little Ishmaclite among1 animals And as
his prej got scarcer, his thirst for blood
jou know he only sucks the blood of his
victims began to adtl new items to his
bill of rare Young calves, and domestic
animals of all sorts were subject to his
depredations, and .vithin the last few
jears a new and terrible aspect has been
given the matter bj the discover of ln
bodies of b.ibes in the cradle, dead, with
the murks of the razor like teeth of the
mongoose Jubt over the arteries of thu
neck
"So jou see that Just now the author!
ties are as muth bothered over how to get
rid of the mongoose as thej were over the
rats and snakes in Tormer davs Their
insatiate thirst Tor blood has made them
turn on man himself "
The animal in Mr Pajnc's rooms looks
Innocent enough Ho is an nverage inon
goose, Air Pajne says, being full grown
about two jears old and is about as largo
as a squirrel, with a thick, round, bush
tail, tapering somewhat from the bodj
Graj fur, a soft pink, moist nose that
is forever sniffing the air for some hint
of prej-, heed like eyes that note every
movement made, are the chaiacteristica
of this innocent looking though blood
thirstj little scamp
Unlike anjtluug else In the woild, he
looks like a weasel, a rat, a squirrel
and a dozen other things The dfUion
arj makers call him a monkey, but he
isn't, he is a lemur, a sort of half monkej,
his scientific name is too long and too
hard to spell
The little fellow is feeling quUe at home
now" and is accustoming himself to a -diet
or cooked meat, with a raw egg now and
then. Jusf to remind him that he Is btill
a mongoose.

CLEVELAND Ii HIS DUCKS
Lcmueil at the White House
Early Yesterday Morning.
PRESIDENT LOOKS RUGGED
Two II Mildred and Eighty-one Water
fowl Hi ought Down by the Party.
Alajorltj "Were the Result of the
Chief Executive' Prowess Pos
blnl the East Gunning Tiin.
President Cleveland returned early yes
terday morning rrom possibly his last
ducking excursion during his second ad
ministration He brought with him 2U ducks, the
greater number of which he Is said to
have shot.
It was just 8 o'clock when the ''cost
Line special rolled into the Sixth f-trei t
station with the Pullman sleeper 'Coro
net" trailing at the re ir. 'I he ear had
1 eeii set aside for the use or the Presi
dential part, and bore tin distinguished
gunner, and their elegant brace of game
from Georgetown, S C.
The President was up and dn-ed by
the time the train reached Long Bridge,
and when it steamed Into the station
he was thu rirst to alight from the car.
He lottked rugged and health and all
traces of the worr and strain consequent
on the preparation of his annual .n-'Sf-age
as the best momentous work he did before
the excursion were gone
Following him closelj, Air Robert D.
Evans and Dr O'Reili alighted from tie
car. Ihu party was met by Mr. Nich jlas
N. Alain, agent or the Pullmin Car Com
pany, who escorted them to the sixth
street gate.
BACK AT THE WHITE HOUSE.
The President- walked with a firm and
stead- tread and smiled upon the station
attendants as he entere d his carriage He
was driven directly to the White House
and reached there at 8 13 o'clock. Dr.
O'Reillj went to his own home fro'n the
depot.
Meanwhile the most interesting proceed
ing to the station attendants vva-the un
loading of the ducks and their transf. r to
the grocery wagon of the Executive Alan
siou kitchen. The wagon is of geii"-ous
proportions, but the great number of t rds,
togethi r with the boxes and gunning para
phernalia, crowded it until its black leather
curtains puffed out like the covering of
an inflated balloon
It was quite the rarest assortment of
birds. itis said, that ha-evi r bet r. brought
to the city The waterfowl were won
derfullv plump and many of tlwtn were
of unusual size
One of the attendants at the stati n
is authoritj for the statement that one
of the ducks was of extraordinary ap
peararce It was a small bird with
peculiar wh'te and blue feathers at tre
tips of the wing- The head a. quae
verinilhon in line, and almost perfect
stars in blue circled the white pin featlu rs
that surrounded the eje-
THE CUBAN BIRD.
Tl e station man is nlo authontv for
the statement that the auck is a natu-e
of Cuban waters and is se Mom foend out
side of its native haunts, 'hough It has
ben tpown to come as far north a-
Pimlico Sound. I
When the wagon, the birds and the
gunning p iraphernalia reached the E cu
tive Alansion, it is said the steward
consumed twentj five minutes in countitig
the game
He, too. paused when he reached the
Cuban bird, and it is generally belMcd by
thoKc who were connected wth vjr ''.
land's return that the peciiinrAftVor Is
either a native of Cuban tuarsht-. nr is
the unredet med thirteenth duck-
At the "White Holm: last tvenin;it was
said that the Pre -idem; had returned at
S o'e'ek in the morning Tradition ak.n
bad it that he had brought with him a
large number of ducks, but the guards at
the mansion astrrtd that they caim- nn
after the n tireuient of the morning guaris
ind knew nothing a- to th" actual numb' r
bagged by the Chief Exccuttv e
MR OLNEY CALLED
The President attindcd hurch a little

bers of l.is Cabinet ind his personal friends
Secretarj Ihurber eilled to see him and
spent some time telling him of events
that hid occurred during hi-, absence, but
no routine business was taken up, and it
is not believed that the President feels
cillec1 upon to add an v thing to the Cuban
controversj at present.
During the daj Secretary Olnej- made
his appearance at the Executive Alansion
and had a brief consultation with the
President, and while there i- no official
