Tee subtle correspondence, the Ideal identities to be traced to the poetic religious myths of Greece and Messianic prophecies aad histo ry are fascinating. The great poeU ef Hellaa, especially Eschylus, mast have been acquainted with Hebrew caltaie of the highest ehar aster; er he and the Hebrew sacred poets must have drunk at the same primal fountain. The legend of Fomelheas Is la maay eseatlals so curiously like the prophetic deelar Miens t the eeming, the career and the death of the Savior, that it Is singular that no apecisllstla com parative archieelegy has sought to pxj4erettelr parallel to the place where the lines must converge. It would be highly Interesting to tira antiquarian la Jewlah lore to have determined the greater age of the premise et a Savior through the people chosen of God: aad ia the absence of eueh proof the, contention galas that maay of the prophesies associated with Christ, and many of the weaderwerks attributed to him, really borrowed from Hellenic and Oriental learning or popular , aad attached to the career of CAriot after thedaath of bath theJr PfWmt JM alls 8jjp$a$ The spiritual identities in Prome theus and Christ are easily to be traced. The translation of the god upon the rook finds IU eounternart in tbeerucifixionortbeChiist. The eanseot the condemnation Is sub stantially the same. Christ was doomed to death technically because he had blasphemed; morally, that bis death might be an atonement for the sins of men, and lead them from darkness Into light Prometheus blasphemed against Jupiter; he alxo supplied mankind with flre.by which they were led out of the darkness of Ignorance Into the light of civiliz ation and the arts. Not only Is the mode of death startllngly alike for both, but even the circumstances surrounding the catastrophe. Com pare the simple but sublimedescrip tien given by iEsehylus with the narrative of the crucifixion as pre served In the scriptures. "Now rivet the ruthless fang of au adamantine wedge through his breast," cries Strength to Vulcan. Strength says to the transfixed suf fering deity, "Highest thou over the enemies of Jupiter? Look to it that thou hast not at some time to mourn for thyself." Again he ad dressed the dying god very much as one of the onlookers did Christ: "By no true title do the divinities call the Prometheus; for thou thyself hath need of a Prometheus by whom thou wilt escape this fate." Prometheus speaking declares that he knew beforehand all futuri ty, and that no suffering can come upon him unexpected. When the sentence upon the god had been comp'etely executed the' ioet de clares that "verily n deed and no longer In word did the earth heave;" the rearing echo of the thunder rolled; deep blazing wreaths of lightlnlng glared and hurricanes wnirled the dust; "firmament was embroiled with the deep." There Is a strange identity also in the radical significance of the names. Prometheus literally means forethought; so the Idea of the Messiah Involved the convention that he who was to come existed In the deity from the beginning and foresaw the fate destined for him as the redeemer. From the same Greek root that forms Prometheus comes the root of pharmacy, whose Greek radical, nharmakou. mean! to the xpular mind of poetic Hellas the great healing drug "the wood or Prnmtlllla-,, So with the Hebrews, Christ Is derived from the equivalent of the anointer, the healer; for oil was the chief remedy wllh the early He brews for ills of the flesh, and was at the same time their chief sac crlflcial symbol. In the Helculc mythology the legend of Prome- theia stands for the triumph of tie xoulover matter: In the Christian eult the death of Christ is followed bv a miraculous resurrection, de monstrating the suieriorityor spirit over matter. It is true that It Is by Jupiter Pro metheus was comuemued; ami mat it was the sins and fall of man that made necessary the deatli or Christ But the Jupiter Idea In Hellenic poetry was varinble: some times it meant the pure and ethereal xol, sometimes an anthropological ilelty capable of men's fraliities and sub ject to men's passions. Like the myths of the air which Buskin has so charmingly elucidated, the value of the Jupiter myth depends largely upon the Ingenuity, the force and the beaut v of Its various Interpreta tions. Shelley, whose mind was eo essentially .mwiij icu mu wuum "Prometheus Unbound" is worthy to be accepted as a substitute for the lost drama by the Greek jioet, reject with scorn the duller version mat Prometheus became reconciled to a comiiroiiii-e loweriuelilm in his own esteem. "The moral interest of the fable which is so powerfully sus tained by the sufferings and enuur ance of Promethus would be annl dilated." he declares, "were such a nrefliimntlnu tolerable. It Is scarcely to be expected that we shall know now more certainty of compartive antiquity or tlie I'romctheau legend as Healou Ural discloses It, and of the Hebrew pro phecies of the Messiah. But tu their present distinct and at the name tints dim relationship they are full of bewilderiuir nivsterv, and by nn means free from suspicion of common origin. a TIIKCCH.UJlllUS KNCAMrMKST.

The committee earnestly recom mended the preparation of a bill placing widows of union soldiers, sailors and marines on the pension list, without regard to the timo of service or cause of soldier's death. The committee further reported: We do not withdraw our support of the bill now before congress, which was proposed and endorsed by the pension committee, known as the disability pension bill.

The St. Louis Ofooe-Democrat of Thursday has the following special dispatch from Washington : WASutKaTON, D. C, September 12. The appointment of Charles K. Holllday of Kansas, to be secretary of the American legation at Vene zuela, which was made Thursday by the president, Is understood to have been secured through th Influence of Judge John Martin, the demo cratic candidate for governor of Kansas. Judge Martin was here a few days ago and was a caller at the While house aad at tlie state de partment. As usual, Judge Martin was successfal.and the appointment he asked was marie. Wli.r. v.n. ms democrat wants office he gener ally sends Jadge Martin to Weaning t4eni so that the Jcdgt'e sppesrsBea here baa recently been accepted as evhtenrta that another Kansas demo- I crat Is in a search of spoils. Ex Governor GUek, who early assumed to have exclusive control of the patronage for the state, seems to have been relegated to the obscurity of the pension agency which he holds atTopeka. It is said a truce has been established between the rival branches of Kansas democacy, rep resented respectively by Martin and Glick, but the indications are that the wily judge Is the dispenser of patronage. Mr. Holllday, who has nst been appointed, is the son of ex-President Holllday of the Santa Fe railroad and he is at present one of the ed itors of the Toieka Democrat, the auti-GIick organ. He is a -recent convert to the democracy, having followed his father into that party some six years ago. The elder Holllday was the democratic can fidate for lieutenant governor on the ticket with Governor Glick. The ticket was overwhelmingly de feated, and the elder Holllday has since reformed and is again a repuu lican. Young Holllday Is still a democrat, and the reward for his constancy ia the secretaryship of the legation to Venzuela. This Is a new ofllce. haveinc been created by the consular and diplomatic bill of this session. The salary Is $1,009 per annum, and the office of the legation is Caracas. aaa CIOTEBNOB HILI. AU NEW TOBK. Chlcaro Inter-Ocean. Maine closed the ante-November elections of the season, and now thattho Democrats of New York. who met in convention at Buffalo vesterdav. have done their work. there are no more state conventions to be held. The last popular verdict has been rendered and the last party declaration made. From now ou until Nov. 6 there will be no Inter ruptlons to the preparations for the decisive bailie oi tuai evenuui usie Tlie Buffalo convention renomi nated Governor Hill, as everybody who knew anything about tne situa tion expected it would do, and with him the present lieutenant governor, Jones, and the member of the Court of Appeals whose term Is about to expire. Judge Gray, an appointee or Hill. Those are the only state offices to be filled by the election of this fall. The relations between PresI dent Cleveland and his gubernatorial successor were early straineu ano are now far from friendly, but each In his way was Independent of the other. The St. Louis convention showed the futility of tlie attempt to defeat the President's reuominaiion by a rally around Hill, and yester day was the latter's "day In court." Rx.mavnr Grace and some others In his own party have tried hard to de feat his renoniinauon, out signnny fnilml in make auv impression. backed up thoueh the anti-Hill movement was by the Mugwump press. The New York Time is par i ir.ni.rl v nnliBiinv over the situation. The Democrats of the state at large seemed to enjoy putting their allies or four vears ago in an embarrassing position. At least the frantic pro teals made atrainst Governor Hill's rnniultiatlon had no iullueuce. tin less it were to strengthen hi chnuces and preclude all possibility of his being dropped. Behind him are two forces which, so far as concerned the nomination, were irresisuoie, me aintn machine and the liquor inter est. Hill Is a skillful manipulator if imtrniinL'e. n born pollt'cfou, and he had succeeded iu making the ofllces under his control work to- irethir for his interest with a unity of purpose showing him to be an rpt anlmlnr of the latn Samuel J.

Hf- has a far stronger hold upon the Democratic part of New York State than President Cleve- l,i ml iiaa. or ever did have, even wIipii that master of political methods, Daniel Mannlug, was run ning the machine for him. It does not follow, however, that he will be a Btrong candidate beiore tne people. On the contrary, his candidacy has marked elements of weakness apart from the dlsravor or the Mugwump. The elements of weakness rcfernd to are two first, his abieci servnny in the lliiuor Interest, and second. the aqueduct scandal, which has smirched his reputation with the amrntrn nf corrupt iobbery. New York is not a state in which prohibi tion could be enfoiced on anything like a thorough scale, as every tem- tiornnee llian verv Weil Kuowo. uui the Hnloons could be made to n. lildmr HenniPH nnd. If they their number would be appreciably decreased and the burdens of gen eral la-rntinn materially liKUteiied The Republican platrorm squarely Indorsed high license, and Wnrner Miller will make his gubernatorial r-nmnnltm larirelvou that Issue.

Tint there, as everywhere In the tTnitcui Kintpa. the National Issue will overshadow all others, and the tarlfTnuestion will be paramount to thanilipra combined. There can be no dodttlng It. When Grover Cleve land confined his last annual mes sage to the advocacy of free trade ami iia-H all the coercion of hi patronage to crowd the Mills bill through the House of Representa tives he left uo chance for Hill or any other Democrat to evade that Issue. It is Immaterial what his personal views may be, or his con ception or expediency; the die was cat last December and there Is no escape from the logic of that ines n. Thin is a niece of Kreat (rood fortune for the Republicans. New Vnrk la hnrdlv more conspicuous in manufactures than In commerce arI finance. Its skilled industries are diversified, but for the most part they would be crippled If not de stroyed by the Mills bill and the Cleveland policy. As a consequence the National Issue is likely to push the strictly state Issue Jar in the background. There was no election for governor four years ago, the only state officers elected then being two judges of the Court of Appeals, Andrews and Rapallo, both or whom were re elected by a vote almost unanimous. On the presidency the result stood: Cleveland, 563.048; Blaine, 562,001; Butler, 17,002; St. John, 25,001; to tal, 1,171, 312. uovernor mu migui strain a point In the count, so far as his control of the machinery of elec tion gives him the power, In favor of himself, but be would hardly shed tears over the defeat of Cleveland, and, judging from the election re Inrn, nMRS.? whan he was elected governor by a plurality of 11,134, he Is about 10,000 stronger than Cleve land, and tne Mugwumps were hostile to him then as now. It Is impossible to forecast the changes two months may work, but even the Democrats in New York admit that the outlook in that Btate is not as encouraging for the democracy as It was In September, 1SSL a i MB.

So strong was the feeling that Congress unanimously adopted an act cloth ing the President with power to sever all commercial relations be tween the two countries until the claims set up by American fisher men are recognized by Canada. To day, thank to the teUdom of Prci dent Cleveland in resorting to negotiation instead of retaliation, the whole Democratic contingent in Congress and the Democratic press are striving to secuie the ratifica tion of a treaty which concedes to Canada every material clalu Bet up under the convention nf 1818.

It Is Pleasant to the Taste as the Sweetest Nectar. It Is Sale and Harmless as the Purest Milk. This ironderful Nervine Tonic has only recently been introduced into Una country by the Great South American Medicine Company, and yet its great value as a curative agent has long been known by the native inhab itants of South America, who rely almost wholly upon iu great medkiBal powers to cure every form of disease by which they are overtaken. This new and valuable South American medicine possesses powers aad nnalitiM nitherto unknown to the medical profession. This medicine has completely solved the problem of the cure 01 Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Liver Complaint, and diseases of tho general Nervous System. It also cures all forms of failing health from whatever cause. It performs this by the Great Nervine Tonic qualities which it possesses and by its great curative powers upon the digestive organs, tbe stomach, the liver and the bowels. No remedy compares with this wonderfully valuable Nervine Tonic as a builder and strengthener of the life forces of the human body and as a great renewer of a broken down constitution. It is also of more real permanent value in the treatment and cure of diseases of the Lungs than any ten consumption rem edies ever used on this continent. It is a marvelous cure for nervousness of females of all ages. Ladies who are approaching the critical period known as change in life, should not fail to use this great Nervine Tonic almost constantly for the space of two or three years. It will carry themsafely over the danger. This great strengthener and curative a of inestimable value to tho aged and infirm, because its great energuing properties wiU give them a new hold on life. It will add tea or fifteen years to tho lives of many of those who will use a half dozen bottles of the remedy each year. CURES Nervousness and Nervous Prostration, Nervous Headache and Sick Headache, Female Weakness, All Diseases of Women, Nervous Chills, Paralysis, Nervous Paroxysms and Nervous Choking Hot Flashes, Palpitation of the Heart, Mental Despondency, Sleeplessness, St. Vitua's Dance, Nervousness of Females, Nervousness of Old Age, Neuralgia, Pains in the Heart, Pains in the Back, Failing Health All these and many other complaints cured by this wonderful Nervine Tonic. NERVOUS DISEASES. As a cure for every class of Nervous Diseases, no remedy has been ablo to compare with the Nervine Tonic, which is very pleasant and harmless in all its effects upon the youngest child or thooldest and most delicate individ ual. Nine-tenths of all the ailments to which the human family ia heir, are dependent on nervous exhaustion and impaired digestion. When there is an insufficient supply of nerve food in the b!oxl, a general Btate of debility of the brain, spinal marrow and nerves is the result. Starved nerves, like starved muscles, becorao strong when tho right kind of food is supplied, and a thousand weaknesses and ailments disappear as tho nerves recover. As tho nervous system must supply all tho power by which tho vital forces of the body are carried on, it is the first to suffer for want of perfect nutrition. Ordinary food does notcontain a sufficient quantity of tho kind of nutriment necessary to repair the wear our prewnt mule ot living and labor imposes upon tho nerves. For this reason it becomes necessary that a nerve food bo supplied. This recent production of tlie South American Continent has been found, by analysis, to contain tlie essential elements out of which nerve tissue is formed. This accounts for its magic power to euro all forms of nervous derangements.
