HIC IS TilY naaorInn.
Has he fallen, deo ly fallen
From the path oltruth anA light?
Is he groping, blindly groplng,
In the blackness of sin's night?
Is he straying, sadly straying,
From the tender Shepherd'r fold?
Is lie staylg, ldly staying,
On the niountain, bleak and cold?
if he's fallen, still remember,
Thiel own stops may Onel day stido,
For while VIrtue's path is narrow,
Error's way Is broad and wide.
Or, if from the fold lie's wandered,
Lured by pleasure's voice away,
Remember from Ills loving care,
Thine own feet are prono to stray.
Turn not from a fellow croaturo
Haughtily, with scornful eyes,
But from sin and shameful rallures.
Lend a hand and help him rise.
If on his brow there rests a marking,
Like the bitter curse of Cain,
By gentle words and kindly actions
Help orase the deadly stain.
Tell him of God's pardoning goodnes
And you'll do the Master's will,
For it matters not how fallen,
Know lie Is thy brother still.
A DANGEROUS DELAY.

BROOKLYN, June 10.-Rev. Dr. Tal.
mage, who is now speed ng act oss the
Pacific to Iionolulo on his round the
world journey, has selected as the sub
iect for sernionic discourse through the
press today "The Exzited Governor,"
the text being taken from Acts xxiv, 25:
"Felix trembled, and answered: Go thy
way for this time. When I have a con
venient season, I will call for thee."
A city of marble was Cmanrea-whar
ves o1 marble, houses of marble, temples
of marble, This being the ordinary
architecture of the place, you may in
agine something of the splendor of Gov
ernor Felix's residence. In a room of
that palace, floor tessellated, windows
curtained, celling fret ted, the whole econo
affluent with Tyrian purple and statues
and pictures andi carvings, Pat a very
dark complexioned man of the nama of
Felix, and beside him a womnii of ex.
traordlnary beauty, whom he haid stolen
by breaking up another diomesti circle.
She was only 18 years of age, a princess
by birth and uinwittii--lv waiting for her
doom-that oi being huried alive in the
ashes and scorbe of' Mount Vesuvius,
which in sutidden eruption one day put an
end to her aiominations.
Well, one afternoon Drusilla, seated
In the palace, weary with the mna.nli

of your elcquence."
Ohi, if there ever wase a chance ol'a
man to show off, Paul had a chance

about Grecian art, alcut thin wondierful

in upon the scene ai peal ol thunder. It

about him as undler a sudden chill. His
eyes glare, and lis knees shake, antd as
he clutches the side of his chair ini a very
paroxysm of terror he orders the shierifi'
to take Paul back to the guardroom.
"Felix trembled and said: (Go thy way
for this time. When .1 hiave a convein
lent .season, I will call for thee." A
young wan came one night to our ser.
vice, with pencil in hand, to caricature
the whole scene anti make mmrth of those
who should express any anxiety about
their souls, but I met him at the dioor,
his lace very white, tears running down
hIs cheek, as lie saidi, "Do you think
there is any chance for nme?" [Felix
trembled, anti so may God granm it may
be so with others,
I propose to give you two or three
reasons why I think Felix seat Paul back
to the guardroom and adjourned this
whole subjectof religion. T1hie first rea
son was he did not want to give up his
sins, Hie looked around. There was
Drusilla. Hie knew that when lhe be
came a Christian lie must send her back
to Azizus, her lawful husband, and lie
said to himself, "I will risk the deistruc
tion of my immortal soul sooner than I
will do that."
HOW many there are now who cannot
get to be Christians because they will
not abandlon their sia In vain all their
prayers and all their church going. You
cannot keep these darling sins and win
heaven, and now some of you will have
to decIded between the wine cup and an.
lawiul amusements and lascivious grati
fIcatlons on the one hand, and eternal
salvation on the other. Delilah sheared
the locks of Samson; Salome danced
Herod Into the pit; Drusilla blocked upI
the way to heaven for Felix. Yet when
I present thme subject now, I fear that
some of you will sax: "Not quite yet.
Don't be so precipitate in your demands
.1. have a few tickets yet that I have to
use. I have a few engagements that I
must keep. I want to stay a
little longer in the whirl of con
vlvlality-a few more guflaws of
unclean laughter, a few more steps on
the road to death, and then, sir, I will
listen to what you say. 'Go thy way for
this time. When I have a convenient
season, I will call for thae."
Another reason why Felix sent Paul
back to the guardroom and adjourne<
this subject was he was so very busy
In ordinary times he found the afflaire
state absorbing, but those were extra
ordinary limes. The whole land was
ripe for hisurrection. The Sicaril, a baud
of smass's, were already prowline
around thc palace, and I suppose tie
thought, "I can't attend'to religion while
I am pressed by t fl'airs of state." it
was businees, smong other things, that
ruined his srul, and I suppose there are
thousands of people who are not children
of God because they have so much busi.

Cor.i:M 1 r A, S. C., J1unie 14.--Sunday
morning when St. Michael's run for
early service and the air was laden
with the perfume of tlowers the bell of
t he convent of Our Lady of Mercy in
Queen street was rung. When the good
samaratani of that holy place answered
the call she was horrifled to see before
her the ghastlIest sight of wvant and
siTerinig that she ever set eyes upon.
11er heart was touched at the spectacle
before her and it was with dililculty that
she could command herself to speak.
"l'or God's sake give us something
to eat, we are starving," said the voice
of a child. The sister started at the
wordls and looked into the pale, haggard
face of a boy of nine summers. The
boy's rugged countenance was distored
with pain, ie looked dirty and miser
able and was almost naked, his clothes
hanging to his hack in tatters. A thin
cadaverous looking woman, pate and
worn with suffering, held him by the

fering were indelibly stamped. ie
leained leavily on the arm of his son,
an elder boy eleven~years old, who like
his brother, wvas also ragged and dirty,
tired and hungry.
This was the picture that met the
good sister's eyes. A party of four hun
gry people stood staring her in the
lace. The sister's heart was touched,
she called for assistance and in a ver~y
few moments four tired souls were
seated before a table on which steame-i
the most delicious yiands, hot coffee
an(d rolls, a meal for a king. When the
meal was over and the party had eaten
their full, the mother with a dee~p sigh
related the following sadl story:
"My husband, myself and two little
boys lived at Marion. We lived liap
pily together until my husband became
sick. The little money lie had was ex
pended in (doctors' bills and medicines.
But that is not all, whliat properity we
had was mortgaged to keep the wolf
from the door. The blow came the
other day when everything we had was
taken from us. Then we decided to
leave thie o1ld homestead and come to
Charleston. We had no money to pay
our fare here and we had to walk. We
tramped the entire distance my sick

we arrived here we were tired and
worn out. The sisters were deeply

Earth and Heaven are the only places
illumined by tRe radiant emiles of in

and has been distinctly and emphatically
recognized by God In all the great epochs
of the world's history. If our first pa
rents had ret ined their sinless integrity
all perfections would have been trans.
mitted to their posterity through endless
ages and a defection from original purity
would have been impossible. This grand
opportunity was lost and thus the curse
was entailed on posterity and depravity
took possession of the race. But human
exigency is the divine opportunity. Re
pentance, regeneration and sanctification
are the remedial exredients by which
God sought to redeem the race.
One half of the human race dies before
reaching the age of five. Many of the
otheis pass away before they reach the
years of accountability. So a majority
of the race is tranferred to the paradise
of God and Heaven Is peopled largely
with children. The death of each infant
is a defeat to Satan. If the presence of
the gleeful glorifled children gladden the
streets and mansions of the New Jerusa.
lem how fearfully dreary, doleful and de
solate must be Satan's dominions, where
childhood never can enter.
Parents sometimes charge God fool
ishly when their children are taken away
but these little ones did not live in vain.
They had their objective work. The
marvellous ministry of helpleness and
innocence has accomplished much in
mellowing and softening older hearts.

death of her child. A common grief and

pot at New Haven and took prisonere
four workmen, who are employed at the
works of the Frick Company and were
on their way home at Lelsenring. The
names of the workmen are John Dela
ney, Oliver Attleby. John Britt and
John Furlough. When they stepped
off the train the mob surroundod them
and marched them away. The
four men were covered wild
chalk and big placards with "scab,"
"blackleg'' and other epthets lettered
thereon. The men were then marched
through the streets escorted by the hoot
ing mob and taken back to the Trotter
and Leisenine plants, where they were
paraded through the btreets between the
compay houses. The strikers jeered
them and the women spit upon them and
hit them with stones and clubs. They
were even marched past their own
homes and their wives and children per
mitted to view them in their helpless.
Sheriff Wilhelm dispatched Deputy
Sheriff Allen with seven deputies to res.
cue the workmen. Allen arrived at 6
o'clock. At no time was lie able to
overtake the mob having the men in
charge. Allen finally learned that the
men were being passed from mob to
mob. It was found that the four men
had been taken to Morrel and from there
to Youngstown and then to Lemont,
where the battle occurred. Early this
morning, after placing the deputies to
prevent the strikers from taking their
prisoners elsewhere, Allen return to Un.
iontown for further orders and was di
rected to rescue the prisioners. Return
ing to Lemont, he found two deputies re
treating before a bowling mob of Slays.
As Allen roade up, a Slav fired at him
with his revolver. The ball passed over
his head. Several of the mob then began
firing at the officers. Allen' revolver was
defective and only two shot were (iced
by him. Five of his assistants came up
and began firing with their Winchesters.
About fifty shots were' exchanged, the
mob slowly advaning, the deputies rn
treating, until reinforced by other dep
uties, when a stand was made. The
mob then began to disperse. Sheriff
Whilhelm was again notitled and sent
thirteen more deputies. An hour later
twelve of the mob were arrested and
brought to lail.
The Slav that was killed was found
lying in the road, shot through the body
by a Wmnchester bullet. Tw~io other
were found in houses near by, both said
to be mortally wounded, having been
ihot. through the thighs. The strikes re
uisedl to give the name of the Slav killed,
>r of those injured. They wanted the
dfllcers to take the (lead striker with
hem whent making the arrest. One of
he men arrested was shot in tihe arm.
At 4 o'clock a special train took dowi,
en more dleputies, and then took the
rounded men to the hospItal at Con
elleville. Many others are believed to
ave been wounded. None of the dep
tLies were injured.
At 5 o'clock a posse of twenty-five
leputies, in charge of Field Deputies
U~len, Altebaugh and Richards, armed
rith search warrants, left for Cool Spring
lollow, after searching thie Lemont
ouses. It 'is belIeved Lhat four work

aen at all hazaras. Scveral hundredl
trikers live in the vicinity of Cool
pring and a conflict may occur. Tuey
ave not returned or been heard from.
Shlerifi Wilhelm said tonight that lie
rould not ask for the mIlitia on account
f today's trouble, ie says he is grow
ig heartily tired of the warfare, but, so
:mg as his deputies are not overpow
red will fight away in attempting to
naintain peace and order. Several hun
redl arrests are exp~ected to follow for
he kidnapping of the men..

CO-OPERATIVE COTTON MILLS.
A Genle RemzInder to the People of sout
In the current issue of the Baltimor
Manufacturers' Record Mr. D. A. Tomr
kins, of Charlotte, one 3f the-mobt su<
ceasful cotton moanufacturers in thi
section has an interesting article o
co-operation in building cotton milli
Mr.Tomkins shows how companies ca
be organized and the money raised b
weekly payments for building cotto
mills in such a way as to make the 01
ganization of such companies feasibl
in hundreds of towns whiere it woul
be impossible to secure large subscri:
tions. In the South we have few sav
iogs banks,compared with those in th
North, and we need enterprises tha
will encourage the habit of saving an(
investing a portion of the weekly earn
ings of the average citizen. Build61
and loan associations supply this wan
to some extent, but we need co-opera
tivo companies to push industrial en
terprises witi the capital that car
easily be furnished in small weekly in
stallments from thousands of our pee.
The success of this plan in Charlott
speaks for itself. Mills have been bull
near Charlotte by subscriptions paya
ble weekly in small sums for one, two
four and eight years, but the favoritt
plan is that of paying 50 cents pei
week on a share for four years. A
this rate 1,000 shares would make i
capital of $100,000, a sum sufficlent a
build a cotton mill of about 5,00(
spindles, with looms enough to weave
their product. Mr. Tompkins gives
the following cstimate for such a mill
Employees, men and boys...........3(
Emgloyees, women and girls........ (
Pay roll per week, about..........635(
Bales cotton consumed per week ....2C
In North Carolina the products o
the different mills vary greatly. Al
Charlotte one mill makes warp yarns
another skein yarns doubled and twist
ed, another makes both warps and
skets, another white cloth, anothef
ginghams, another counterpanes and
towels, another stockings and knit
goods. Those mills which make colored
goodsmust have dye works.
If the subscriptions to the stock 01
an enstallment mill are made payable
at the rate of 50 cents per week per
share, and the capital subscribed was
$100,000, then in the first year the
amount paid in to the company's treas
ury would be about $25,000. Witl
this money the buildings could be built
and paid for, leaving a surplas in the
treasury. The buildings would be a
main building, engine room, boiler
room and houses or cottages for the
hands to live in. In some special cases,
where the factory was to be built in a
city, these houses might not be built,
as the hands could find board or houses
to rent near by the factory in the city.
Generally speaking, however, it is best
to -put a factory one to four miles away
from a city, and let the company build
and own the houses the employes live
In Charlotte no house rent is charged,
the factories furnishing houses free of
rent. In some other places rent is
charged at the rate of 81 per room.
Considering that subscriptions were
being paid regularly, and that the
buildings were all completed and paid
for at the end of about one year, and
that the company's income was about
$2,000 per month from regular install
mient payments on subscriptions, then
uinder these conditions about $2,500
spindles and appeartaining machinery
could be bought for a good cash pay
ment, andl the remainder payable
$1,000 to $2,000 per month. In about
sixteen to eighteen moliths from the
time the first payments were made the
mill could be started uip on about one
thirdl to one-half its capacity; then the
remainder of the machinery could be
addled and started up from time to
time as the money continued to come
in by installments.
No dividends should be paid until
the stock is paid in full and the 0f11.
cers should receive very small salaries.
The mills near Charlotte, built on this
plan, have been very successful, and
some of them during the (lull season
have run night and day to 11ll orders
for theIr goods. The co-operative plan
if fairly tried would soon -make the
South the cotton manufacturing center
of the world.
A NARROW ESCAPE.
A Lton Attacke is Tamer ini the
CONEY ISLAND, N. Y., Juno 10.
Mlle. Bea trice, a lion tamer at the Lon
don show, which is giving a wild animal
show on the 01ld iron pier at WVest
Brighton, had a narrow ecrC'pe from be
ing mangled to death toniight by a lion.
it was just 10 o'clock - hel1 enclosure
on the pier where the -sa 11 is are on
exhibition was crowvdcd with,. people.
The last preformance of the day was
being relveu and Beatrice appeared in
the hall, climbed up the ladder leading
to the wild lions' cage and entered.
There are two hig Asiatic lions in the
cage, a male and a female. Bella is the
female's name and Brutus the male'e.
The latter is a groat pet of the lion
tamer, and she plays with him for fit
teen minutes at every preformance. Her
act with the wild beast is closed by
opening his mouth and kissing him. She
always succeded in kissing the brute
until tonight. While she was making
her bold attempt to smack the lips of
Brutus the man who feeds the lions
made is apperance near the cage with
a box of raw beet. Brutus caught sight
of the beef, and in a moment he un -
fastened B3eatrice's hold upon him and
sprang upon her.
Both had a lively tussle which finally
resuited in the lion tamer's falling to the
floor and the lion's grabbing the left side
cf her face in his mouth. The women
and children in thea nsulience screamed
and the men rushed aLoundl~ the hall
looking for clubs and stickcs ith which
to beat the lion away from the woman.
In a few moments Manager Farrar and
Trainers Bruce and Ord way rushed in
with pitch lorks. After lphmngag the
forks several times in the head andl body
of the lion they managed to make him
loosen his hold and got the girl out o1
the cairo. She was urlconsciouis and l
blood was lpooring from her lace as ahie
was carried into the oflce. Dr. Hlili
was eunmmonedl and the woman was p~ut
to bed. When the doector arrived the
woman was delirious and opiates had to
be giveni to quiet her. Upon eximma
lion Dr. Hill found that the lion had
succeeded in sticking three 01 hIs bIg
teeth through the woman's lefL jaw.
Othier parts of her face were also chew
edi. It Look some time to stop the flow
oi brood, Dr. Hill salid tonight that it
'was the worst case of animal bite lhe
ever saw. Thie woman was dlelirious
at midnight and Dr. lull says she Is in
a precarious condition. Mile. Beatrice in
