Last wvenlng, the genial aliterhood of the convent ordered a hundred bright-eyed (Arab children brought out to alng for .ait, and it waa glorious! Thia morning 'l oome out on the atepi of the convent ' and look upon the most beautiful Til lage of all Palestine, its housea of ' arhit limestone. Ouesa its name! Naz areth, historical Naiareth, one of the trinity of places that all Christian trav eler must see or feel that they have not ' 'seen Palestine, namely, Bethlehem, Je aalem, Nazareth. Babyhood, boyhood, manhood of Him for whom I believe 'there are fifty million people who would bow, if It were required, maroh out and Ale whether under aze, or down in the floods, or straight through the fire. Grand old village Is Naiareth, even putting aside its sacred associations. First of all, It is clean; and that can be aald of few of the Oriental villages. It neighboring town of Nablous is the filthiest town I ever saw although ita chief Industry is the manufacture of soap. They export all ot it Naiareth waa perhapa unusually clean the morn ing I speak of, for, as we rode into the Tillage the afternoon before, the show ers which had put our mackintoshes to the test had poured floods through all the alleys under command of the olouds, those thorough street commissioners. Besides that, Nazareth has been the scene of battles passing it from the Is raelite to Mohammedan, and from Mo hammedan to Christian, the most won derful of the battles being that in which twenty-five thousand Turks were beaten by twenty-one hundred French, Napo leon Bonaparte commanding, that great est of Frenchmen walking these very street through which Jesus walked for nearly thirty years, the morals of the two, the antipodes, the snows of Russia, and the plagues of Egypt appropriately following the one, the doxologles of earth and the hallelujahs of heaven appropriately following the other. And then thia town is so beautiful, situated in a great green owl, the sides ot the bowl, the sur rounding fifteen hills. The God of na ture who la the God of the Bible evi dently scooped out this valley for pri vacy and separation from all the world Aurlng three most important decades, the thirty yoara of Christ's boyhood and youth, for of the thirty three years of Christ's stay on earth, he apent thirty Of tbeoi in thia town in getting ready a startling rebuke to those who have no patience with the long yoara of prepara tion necessary when they enter on any special mission for the church or the world. The trouble is with most young men that tbey want to launob their ship from the dry dock before it is ready, and henco so many alnk in the first Cyclone Stay in the store as a subordi nate until you are thoroughly equipped. Be a good employe in your trade until you are qualified to be an employer. Bo content with Nazareth until you are ready for the buffotlngs of Jerusalem. You may get ao gloriously equipped in thirty years, that you can do more in three years than most men can accom plish in a prolonged lifetime. Those lttle suggestions I am apt to put Into my sermon, hoping to bolp people for this world, while 1 am chiefly anxious o have them propare for t he next world. All Christ's boyhood waa spent in this village and ita surroundings. There is the very well called 'The Fountain ot the Virgin," to which by His mother's Fide He trotted along holding her hand. No doubt about it; it is the only well in the village, and it has been the only well for three thoussnd years. Thia morning we visit it, and the mothers have tbrlr children with tbem now aa then. The work of drawing water in all ages in those countrlos haa been wo men's work. Scores of them are wait ing for their turn at it, three great and everlasting springs rolling out into that well their barrels, their hogsheads of fater in floods gloriously abundant he well is surrounded by olive groves and wide spaces in which people talk end children, wearing charms on their beads aa protection against tbe "evil eye," are playing, and women with their atrings of ooln on either side of their face, and in skirts of blue, and scarlet, . and white, and green, move on with with water-jars on their heads. Mary, I suppose, almost always took Jesus the boy with ber, for she had no one she eould leave Him with, being in humble circumstances and having no attendant. I do not believe there waa on ot the surrounding fifteen hills that the boy Christ did not range from bottom to top, or one cavern in their sldea he did not explore, nqr one species ot bird flying across the tops that lie could not call by name, or one of all the species of fauna browsing on those steeps that He had not recognized. Tou aee it all through Ula sermons. If man becomes s publlo speaker, in his orations or discourses you discover bis early whereabout. What a boy sees be tween seven and seventeen always ticks to him. When the Apostle Peter preaches, you see the fishing net with which he had from his earliest days been familiar. And when Amos delivers his prophecy yon hear in it the bleating of tbe herd which he had in boyhood at totided. And ia onr Lord's sermon and conversations you see all the phase ot village life, and the mountainous life surrounding it They raised their own ehlckens in Natareth, and in after times be cried; "C Jerusalem! Jerusalem! how often would I have gathered thee as a hen gathereth her ohiekena under ber wings!" He had seen His mother open the family wardrobe at the close of summer and the moth millers flying out, having destroyed the garment, and In after years He Bys:- "Lay not up for yourselvoa treasure on earth where moth doth corrupt" In childhood He had aeen a mile of flowers, ' white aa the snow, or red as the flame, or blue aa the sea, or green as the tree tops, and no wonder in hla manhood sermon He said, "Con sider the lilies." While one day on a high point where now stands the tomb ot Neby Ismail, He bad aeen winging past Him so near as almoat to flurry Hla hair, the partridge and tbe hoopoe, and the thrush, and tbe osprey, and tbe crane, and the raven, and no wonder afterward, in his manhood sermon, be aald, "Behold the fowls of the air." In Nazareth, and on the road to it, there are a great many camels. I aee them now in memory making their alow way up the aig-zag road from the plain of Esdraelon to Nazareth. Familiar waa Christ with their appearance, also with that small inseot, the gnat, whloh He bad seen His mother strain out from a oup of water or pan ot milk, and no wonder be brings afterward tbe large quadruped and the small insect into his sermon and, while seeing tbe Pharisees careful about small sins and reckless about large ones, cries out: "Woe unto you blind guides who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel." . He had in boyhood seen the shepherds get their flocks mixed up, and to one not familiar with the habits ot shepherds and their flocks, hopelessly mixed up. And a sheep-stealer appears on the scene and dishonestly demands some of those sheep, when he owns not one of them. "Well," say the two honest shepherds, "we will soon settle this matter," and on shepherd goes out in one direotion and tbe other shepherd goes out in tbe other direction and the sheep-stealer in another direction, and each one calls, and the flacks of eaoh of the honest shepherds rush to their owner, while tbe sheep-stealer calls, and calls again, but gets not one of the flock. No won der that Christ years after, preaching on a great occasion and illustrating HJs own shepherd qualities, says: "When he putteth forth his own sheep he gooth before them, and the sheep follow blm, for tbey know bis voice, and the strangor thoy will not follow, for tbey know not tbo voice of the atranger. The sides ot the hills are terraced for grapes. The boy Christ bad often stood with groat round eyes watch ing the trimming of the grape vinos. Clip goes the knife and off falls a branoh. Tbe child Chrlat ssys to tbe farmer, "What did you do that for?" "0," says tbe farmer, "that is a dead branoh and is doing nothing and is only in the way, so I cut it off." Then the farmer with his sharp knife prunes from a living branoh this and that tendril and the other tendrlL "But," says the child Christ "these twigs that you cut now are not dead; what do you do that for?" "O," aays the farmer, "we prune off these that the main branch may bave more of the sap and ao be more fruit ful." No wonder in after years Christ said in his sermon: "I am tho true vine and My father ia the husbandman; every branoh in Me that beareth not fruit He taketb away, and every branch that beareth fruit He purgetb it, that it may bring forth more fruit" Capital! No one who bad not boen a country boy would have said this. Streak of nature ajl through Christ's sermons and conversations! When a pigeon descended upon Christ' bead at hi baptlam in the Jordan it waa not the first pigeon be bad aeen. And then he has such a wide sweep of discourse aa you may imagine from one who haa stood on the hills that overlook Naza reth. As far aa I understand, Christ visited the Mediterranean Sea only once, but any olear morning he could run up on a bill near Nazareth and look off to tbe west and aee the Mediter ranean, while there in the north is snowy Mount Lebanon, olad as in whit robe of ascension, and yonder on the east and southoaat Mount Gil boa, Mount Tabor, and Mount Qllead, and yonder in the south is the Plain of Eadraelon over which we rode yesterday on our way to Nazareth. Those mountains of his boyhood in his memory, do you won der that Christ, when be wanted a good pulpit, made it out ot a mountain "seeing tbe multitudes He went up into tbe mountain." And when He wanted especial communion with God, he took Jamea and John and Peter into "a mountain apart" O, thia country boy of Nazareth, come forth to atone for the ains of the world, and to correct the follies of the world and to stamp out the cruelties of tbe world and to illumine the darkness of the world and to transfigure tbe hemis pheres! So it haa been the mission of tbe conn try boys in all ages to trans form and inspire and rescue. They come into our merchandise and our court looms and our healing art and our atudlos and our theology. They lived in Nazareth before they entered Jeru aalem. And but for that annual Influx our cities would bave ennervated and alckened and slain tbe race. Late hours and hurtful apparel and overtaxed digestive organs and crowding environ ment of city life, would have baited the world, but the vailoys and moun tains of Nazareth have given fresh sup ply of health and moral ivigoratlon to Jerusalem, and the country saves the town. From the hills of New Hamp shire and the hills of Virginia and the hill of Georgia come into our national eloquence the Webster, and the Clay and tbe Henry W. Grady. From tbe plain homes of Massachusetts and Mary land come into our national cbarltlea the George Peabodya and the Will lam Coroorans. From the cabins of tbe lonely country regions come into our national destinies the An drew Jackaona and the Abraham Lincoln. From plow boy's furrow and village counter and blacksmith' forgo oome moat of our city giants. Nearly all the Messiaba la all department dwelt in Nazareth before they came to Jerusalem. I send this day thank from tbeae oltlos, mostly made prosper on by country boys, to the farmhouse and tbe prairie and the mountain oabina, and the obscure homesteads of North and 8outh and East and West, to the fathers and mothers in plain homespun if they be still alive, or the hillocks un der whloh they sleep the long sleep Thanks from Jerusalem to Nazareth. ' But alas that tbe oity should so often treat tbe country boys as ot old the on from Nazareth was treated at Jerusalem! Slain not by hammers and spikes, but by instruments Just as cruel. On every street ot every city the crucifixion goes on. Every year shows it ten thoussnd of tho slain. O, how we grind them up! Under what wheels, in what mills, and for what an awful grist! Let tbe oity take better oare of these boys and young men arriving from tbe country. They are worth saving. They are now only the preface of what tbey will he If in stead of sacrificing you help them. Boys as grand as tho one who, with his elder brother, climbed into a church tower and, not knowing their danger, went outside on some timbers, when one ot those timbers broke and tbo boys fell snd the older boy onught on a beam and the younger clutched the foot ot the older; the older oould not climb up with the younger hanging to his feet, so the younger said: "John, I am going to let go; you can ollmb out Into safety, but you can't climb up witb me holding fast; I am going to let go; kiss mother for me, and tell her not to fool badly; good-bye!" and he was so hard dashed upon tbo ground that he was not recog nizable Plenty of such brave boys coming up from Nazareth! Let Jeru salem be careful bow it treats them! A gentleman long ago entered a school in Germany, and he bowed very low before tbe boys, and the teacher said: "Why do you do that?" "O," said the visitor, "I do not know what mighty man may yet be developed among tbem." At that instant tbe eves of one of the boys flashed fl.-e. Who waa it? Martin Luther. A lad on Lis way to school passed a door-step on wbioh sat a lame and invalid child. The passing boy aald to him: "Why don't you go to sohool?" "O, I am lame and I can't walk to school." "Get on my bsck," said tbe well boy, "and I will carry you to school" And so he did that day and for many days until tbe invalid waa fairly started on the road to an education. Who was the well boy that did that kindnosa? 1 don't know. Who was the invalid he carried? It was Robert Hall, tbe rapt pulpit orator of all Christendom. Hotter give to the boys who come up from Nazaroth to Jerusalem a crown instead of a cross. On this Deombor morning in roles tine on our way out of Nazaroth we saw just such a carpenter's shop as Jesus worked in, supporting bis widowed mother, after be was old enough to do so. I looked In, and there were ham mer, and saw, and plane, and auger, and vice, and measuring-rule, and chisel, and drill, and adze, and wrenoh, and bit and all tbe tools of carpentry. Think ot it! He who smoothed tbe sur face of the earth, aboving a plana He who cleft tbe mountains by earth quake, pounding a chisel. He who opened the mammoth caves of th earth, turning an auger. He who wields the thunderbolt, striking with a bam mer. lie who scooped out the bed for tbe oooan, hollowing ladle. He who flashes the morning on the earth and makes the midnight heavens quiver with aurora, constructing a window. I can not understand it but I believe it A aoeptlo said to an old clergyman, "I will not believe anything I can not ex plain." "Indeed!" said the clergyman. You will not believe anything you can not explain. Please to explain to me why aome cows have horns." "No!" said tbe scoptic, I did not mean exactly that I mean that I will not believe anything I have not xnen!' "Indeed," aald the clergyman, "You will not believe any- things you lit to not seen. Have yon a backbone?" "Yes'" said the skeptic. "How do you know?" said the clergy man. "Have you ever seen it?" This mystery of Godhead and humanity in terjolned I can not understand, and I can not explain, but I believe it I am glad there are ao many things we can not understand, for that loaves some thing for heaven. If we knew every thing here heaven would be a great In dolenoe. What foolish people, tboso who are In perpetual fret because tbey can not understand all that God aays and doea A child in tho first juvenile primer might as well burst into tears because it can not undorstaud oonlo sections. In this world we are only in the A-ll-C class, and we can not now understand tbe libraries ot eternity which put to utmost test faculties arch angelic. I would bo ashamed of Heaven if we do not know more there, with all our faculties intensified a million fold and at the center of the unlvorse, than we do here with our dim faculties and clinging to the outside rim of the uni verse. In about two houra we pass through Cana, the village ot Palestine, where the mother of Christ and our Lord at tended the wedding of a poor relative and having come over from Nazareth for that purpose. The mother of Christ for women are first to notice such things found that tbe provisions bsd fallen short and sbe told Christ, and He, to relieve the embarrassment of tbe housekeeper, who had invited more guest than the pantry warranted, be came the butler ot the occasion, and out of a cluster and a fow sympathetic words squeozed a beverage of a hundred and twenty-six gallons of wine, in which was not one drop of lntoxicsntor it would have loft that party as maudlin and drunk as tbe greet centennial ban quot In New York two years' ago, left Senators, and governors, and generals and merchant princes. The difference between the wine at the wed ding in Cana and the wine at the ban quet in New York being that the Lord nmde tbe one and the devil made tbe other. W got off our horses and exam ined aome ot these wator jars st Cana said to be the very ones that held the plain water that Christ turned into tbe purple bloom of an especial vintage, I measured them and found thorn eighteen inches from edge to edge and nineteen I inches deep, aud declined to accept their laeatity. uui we realizes the im mensity of a aupply of a hundred and twenty-six gallons of wine. What wa that for? Probably one gallon would have been enough, for, it was only an additional Installment of what had al ready been provided, and it is prob able that, tbe housekeeper oould not have guessed more than on gallion out of the way. But a hun dred and twenty-six gallons! What will they do with tbe aurplus? Ah, it waa juat like our Lord? Those young peo ple were about to start in housekeep ing and their means were limited, and that big supply, whether kept in their pantry or sold, will be a mighty help. You see there was no strychnine, ' or logwood, or nux vomica in that bever age, and a the Lord m ade it it would keep. He makea mountains and seas that keep thousands of years and cer tainly he could make a beverage that would keep four or five years. Among the art and invention of the future I hope there may be aome one that can press the juices from the grape and ao mingle tbem and without one drop of damning alooholiam that will keep for year. And the more of it you take the dearer will be the brain and the health ier tbe stomach. And here Is a remark able fact In my recent journey I trav eled through Italy, and Greece, and Egypt, and Palestine, and Syria, and Turkey, and how many intoxicated peo ple do you think I saw in all those five great realms? Not one. We must in our Christianized lands bave got hold ot some kind of beversge that Christ did not make. O, I am glad that Jesus was present at that wedding, and last December, stand ing at Cana, that wedding oame back. Night had fallen on the village and ita surroundings. The bridegroom bad put on his head a bright turban and a gar land of flowers, and his garment had been made fragrant with tranklnoense and camphor, an odor which the Ori ental especially likes. Accompanied by groomsmen, and preceded by a band of musicians with flutes and druma and horns, and by torches in full blaze, be starts for tbe bride' home. This river of fire is met by another river of fire, tbe torches of the bride and bridesmaids; flambeau answering flambeau. The brldo is In white robe and ber veil not only covers hor face but envelopes her body. Her trousseau is as elsborate as the resourcos of her father'a bouse permit Her attendant are decked with all the ornaments tbey own or can borrow; but tholr own per sonal charms make tame the jewels, for those Oriental women eclipse in attract ivoness all others except those of our own land. Tbe damson rose is in their chcok, and tbe diamond in the luster of their eyes, and tbe blackness of the night in their long locks, and in tbelr step is the gracefulness of the morning. At tbe first sight of tbe torches of tbe bridegroom and hla attendants coming over the bill tbe cry rings through the home of the bride: "Tbey are in sight! Get ready! Behold, tbe bridegroom cometh! Go ye out to meet him." A the two procession ap proach each other, the timbrels strike and the songs commingle, and then tbe two processions become one, and march toward the bridegroom's bouse, and meet a third procession which Is made up of tbe friends of both bride and bride groom. Then all enter the houae, and tbe dance begins, and the door ia shut And all thia Christ uses to illustrate tbe joy with which the ransomed of earth shall meet Him when He comes garlanded with clouds, and robed in tbe morning and trumpeted by the thunders of the last day. Look! There He comes down oft the bill of heaven, the Brldeirrbom! And let u I atari out to ball Him, for I bear the voices of the judgment dsy sounding: "Behold the Bridegroom cometh! Oo ye out to meet Iilml" And the disap pointment of those who hsve declined the invitation to the gospel wedding is presented under the figure of a door heavily closed. You bear it slam. Too late. Tbo door 1 shut! But we must hasten on for I do not mean to close my eyes to-night till I see from a mountain top, Lake Galilee, on whose banks, next Sabbath, we will worship, and on whose wators tbe fol lowing morning we will take a sail. On and up we go in the severest climb of all Palestine, tbe ascent of the Mount of Beatitudes, on the top of whloh Christ oreacbed that famous sermon on the Blesseds Blessed this and blessed that Up to tbelr knees the horses plunge in molehills, and a surface that gives away at the first touoh of tbe boot, and again and again tbe tired beasts halt, as much as to say to the riders, "It is un just for you to make us ollmb these steeps." On and up over mountain sldos, where in tbe latter aeason, hya cinths and daisies, and phloxea and amenone kindle their beauty. On and up until on tbe rocks of black basalt we dismount and, climbing to tbe highest peak, look out on an enchantment of scenery that seems to be the Beatitudes themselves arched into skies, and rounded into volleys and silvered into waves. Tbe view is like thst of Tennes see and North Carolina from the top of Lookout Monntaln, or like that ot Vermont and New Hampshire from the top of Mount Washington. Hall bills ot Galileo! Hall Lake Oennesaret, only four milea away Yondor, oloar up and moat conspicuous. Is Safed, tbe very city to which Christ pointed for illustra tion in the sermon proacbed here, say ing: "A city set on a hill can not be hid." Thero are rocks around me on this Mount of Beatitudes, enough to build the hlgliost pulpit tbe world ever saw. Aye, it is tbe highest pulpit It over looks all time and all eternity. The valley of Hattln-betweon here and Lake Galilee is an ampbltboater, a though the natural contour ot the earth bad in vited all nations to come and sit down and bear Chrlat preach a sermon, in wbloh there wore more startling novel ties than wereevor announced in all the sermon that were ever preached. To those who beard Him on this very spot His word must bave soemed the con tradiction of every thing that they bad ever beard or read or experienced. Tbe world' theory had been: Blossed are the arrogant, blossed are the supercilious, blessed are tbe tearless, blessed are they that have every thing their own way, blessed are the war eagles, blessed are the persecutors, blessed ere tbe popular, Nested are the Ueroda, and the Ciesars, and tbe Ahabs. "Nol no! no!" says Christ, with a voloe that rings over these ooks, and through yonder valley of Hactln, nnd down to (be opa line lake on ono side, and the sapphire Mediterranean on the other, and aorots Europe in one -vay and acris Asia in tbe other way, and around the earth both ways, till the globe shall yet be gir dled with tho nine beatitudes: blessed are the poor, blessed are the mournful, blessed are the meek, blessed are the hungry, blessed are tho merciful, blessed are the poor, blessed are the peace makers, blessed are the persecuted, blessed are the falsely reviled. . . ; . Do you see how the Holy Land and the Holy Book fit each other? God with his left hand built Palestine, and with bis right wrote the Scriptures, the two hands of the same being. And in pro portion as Palestine is brought under close inspection, the Bible will be found more glorious and more true. Mightiest book of tbe pan! Mightiest book of the future! Monaroh of all literature! The proudest work of Genius shall decay, And Reason's brightest luster fade away; The Sophist's art, tbe poet's boldest flight, Shall sink In darkness and oonolude la night; But faith triumphant over tlma shall stand, Shall grasp th saorad volume to her hand ; Back to Its souroe tbe heavenly Rift oonvey, Than in th flood of glory melt away. THE SPANISH BARBER. JH Work In the Opea Air and Shears Donkeys as Wall as Men. The barber' business in Spain is pe culiar in that he ia called upon to ply bis shears on donkeys as well as men. For it is an important item in the care of Spanish donkeys that they should be sheared a to the back in order to make a smoother resting place for man or pan nier. So while the master beld bis ani mal on of the barbers plied hi enor mous clacking shears, and littered the ground with mouse-colored balr, leav ing the beast's belly fur-covered below a fixed line, and for a small additional price exocutlng a raised pattern ot star points around the neck. Tbe ton sorlal profession is an indispensable one in a country where shaving tbe whole face is so generally praoticod among all tho humbler orders, not to mention toreros and eccloslastlos. But tbe dis comfort to which the harbor's customers submit Is astonishing. Instead of being pampered, soothed, labored at with con fidentlal respectfulness, and lulled into luxurious harmony with himself, as bap pens in America, a man who courts the rszor In Spain has to sit upright in a stiff cbalr and meekly hold under hi chin a brass basin full of suds, and fit ting his throat by means of a curved nick at one side. One individual we ssw seated by the dusty road at the gate with a towel around his shoulders and another in his bands to catch bis own falling n lock s. He looked submissive aad miserable, as if assisting at his own degradation, while the barber was mag nified into a tyrant exercising sovereign pleasure. Chicago Tribune. Mill Marxian's Noble Mission. Miss Kate Marsden, another herolo and fearless English woman, who, like Sister Rose Gortrude, proposes to de vote her life to the mitigation of the suffering by leprosy, bas started out upon a most gruesome journey. Armed with a letter of introduction rom the Prin cess of Wales to ber sister, tbe Empress of Russia, Miss Msrsden wss graciously received at the court of Russia some time ago and permission grunted ber to visit as was her desire, tne principal Russian leper hospital in preparation for her work. On her return to En gland to make the necessary arrange ment for so long and perilous an expe dition ahe learned that aa intimate frlond, a woman of moans, had deter mined to build a loper hospital de signed upon a now plan, whereby the isolation of the patient should be as sured, hi condition made as comfort able as possible and tho danger of in fection to the outside world be re duced to a minimum. As a means of accomplishing this result tbe two women are to go together throughout tbe countries of Europe where the dis ease is prevalent to investigate the peculiarities and tbo methods by whloh it is being treated. Chicago Post , History ml m Well-Koowo Kong. How many of the myriads who in oblldbood bave sung, "There 1 a happy land, far, far away," knew anything of its writer? Ills name is Andrew Young, and he is now eighty years of age, still mentally and physically vigorous, and retaining, in all its early freshness, bis sympathy with children. Tbe hymn was composed in 1838. Tbe tune to which it ia married is an old Indian air, which blended with the muslo of the woods in tbe primeval forest long before Sunday-schools were thought of. Tbe bymn was composod for tbe melody. Its bright and strongly-marked phrases struck Mr. Young's musical ear the first time he heard it casually played in tbe drawing-room. He askod for It again and again. It haunted him. Being accustomed to rollove bis thought and toolings in rhyme, words naturally followed, and so the bymn was created. It got into print It has been trans lated into plneteon different languages. And yet the author has never received, and, indeed, bas never been offered a penny in remuneration.
