Ta.hU the Yallad, tha Silent and tba Blght.ooi Th Bold Tasu and the Mode Woman Waldos; Tor tha Dt- vtna Band to Sooth. WAsnrXGTOK, July 6. In hia sermon to- I ay, storting from brilliant Bible scone, Dr. Talinoge discourses upon woman'a op portunities and the wrongs aho aometimca suffers. Hia text was Esther L 11, 12: "To bring Vashtl tha queen before the king with the crown royal to show the people and the princes her beauty, for ahe woa fair to look on. But the queen Vashtl rof uaod to come at the king a commandment by hia chamberlains, therefore waa the king very wroth, and bis anger burned in him. We stand amid the palaces of Shushan. The pinnacles are aflame with the morning light The columns rise fostoonod and wreathed, the wealth of empires flashing from the grooves, the ceilings adorned with lmageaof blrdj and beast and scenes of prowess and conquest. The walls are hung with shields and emblazoned until it seems that the wholo round of splendors Is ex hausted. Each arch Is a mighty leap of architectural achievement Golden stars, shining down on glowing arabesque. Hangings of embroidered work in which mingle the blucness of the sky, the green ness of the grass, and the whiteness of the sea foam. Tapestries hung on silver rings, wedding together the pillars of marble. Pavilions reaching out in every direction. These for repose, filled with luxuriant couches, into which weary limbs sink un til all fatigue Is submerged. These for ca rousal, where kings drink down a king dom at one swallow. Amazing spectacle! Light of silver dripping down over stairs of ivory on shields of gold. Floors of stained marble, sunset red and night black. and Inlaid with gleaming poarL Why, it seems as if a heavenly vision of amethyst and jacinth and topaz and chrysoprasus had descended and alighted upon shushan. It seems as If a billow of celestial glory had dashed clear over heaven's battlements upon this metropolis of Persia. In connection with this palace there Is a garden where the mighty men of foreign lands are seated at a banquet Under the spread of oak and linden and acacia the tables are arranged. The breath of honey suckle and frankincense fills the air. Fountains leap up into the light, the spray struck through with rainbows falling In crystalline baptism upon flowering shrubs, then rolling down through channels of marble and widening out here and there into pools swirling with the finny tribes of foreign aquariums, bordered with scarlet anemones, Hypericums and many colored ranunculus. Meats of rarest bird and beast smoking up amid wreaths of aro matles. The vases filled with apricots and almonds. The baskets piled up with aplcrots and dates and figs and oranges and pomegranates. Melons tastefully twined with leaves of acacia. The bright waters of Eukeus filling the. urns and sweating outside the rim in flashing beads amid the traceries. Wine from the royal vats of Ispahan and Shlraz in bottles of tinged shell and Illy shaped cups of silver and flagons and tankards of solid gold. The muslo rises higher, and the revelry breaks out into wilder transport, and the wine has flushed the cheek and touched the brain, and louder than all other voices are the hiccough of the inebriates, the gab ble of tools and the song of tho drunkards. Vaibtl the Sacrificed. In another part of the palace Queen Vashtl is entertaining tho princesses of Persia at a banquet Drunken Ahnsucrus says to his servants, "You go out and fetch Vashtl from that banquet with tho women and bring her to this banquet with the men and let me display her beauty. " The servants Immediately start to obey the king's command, but there was a rule in oriental society that no woman might ap pear in publlo without having her face veiled. Yet here was a mandate, that no one dare dispute, demanding that Vashtl come In unveiled before the multitude. However, there was in Vashtl's soul a principle more regal than Ahasuerus, more brilliant than the gold of shushan, of more wealth than the realm of Persia, which commanded her to disobey this order of tho king, and so all the righteousness and holiness and modesty of her nature rises op into one sublime refusal. She says, "I will not go into the banquet unveiled." Of course Ahasuerus was infuriate, and Vashtl, robbed of her position and her es- tate, is driven forth in poverty and ruin to suffer tho scorn of a nation, and yet to receive the applauso of after generations who shall rise up to admire this martyr to kingly insolence. Well, the last vestige of that feast is gone, the last garland has faded, the last arch has fallen, the last tankard has been destroyed, and Shushan is a ruin, but as long as the world stands there will be multitudes of men and wom en familiar with the Bible who will come into this picture gallery of God and admire the divine portrait of Vashtl the queen, Vashtl the veiled, Vashtl the sacrifice, Vashtl the silent Noble Women. In the first place, I want you to look upon Vashtl the queen. A blue ribbon. rayed with white, drawn around her fore head, indicated her queenly position. It was no small honor to be queen in such a realm as that Hark to the rustle of her robes I See the blaze of her jewels I And yet, my frlonds, It is not necessary to have palace and regal robe in order to be queen ly, w ben I see a woman with strong faith in God putting her foot upon all meanness and selfishness and godless display, going rig).t forward to serve Christ and the race by a grand and glorious service, I say, "That woman is a queen," and the ranks of heaven look over the battlements upon the coronation, and whether she come up from the shanty on the commons or the mansion of the fashionable square I greet her with the shout: "All haill Queen Vashtl!" What glory waa there on the brow of Mary of Scotland, or Elizabeth of England, or Margaret of France, or Cath erine of Russia compared with the worth of some of our Christian mothers, many of them gone into glory; or of that woman mentioned in the Scriptures who put all her money Into the Lord's treasury: or of Jephthah's daughter, who made a demon stration of unselfish patriotism; or of Abi gail, who rescued the herds and flocks of her husband; or of Euth, who tolled under a tropical sun for poor, old, helpless Naomi; or of Florence Nightingale, who went at midnight to stanch the battle wounds of the Crimea; or of Mrs. Adoniram Judson, who kindled the lights of salvation amid the darkness of Burma; or of Mrs. He mans, who poured out her holy soul in words which will forever be associated with hunter's horn, and captive's chain, and bridal hour, and lute's throb, and cur few's knell at the dying day, and scores and hundreds of women unknown on earth who have given water to the thirsty and DISEASES OF THE SKEV.

When the most triumphant thing to do ll bread to tha hungry and medicine to tha lck and smiles to the discouraged their footsteps heard along dork lune and In govei ninent hospital and In almshouse cor ridor and by prison gatef There may be no royal robe; there may be no palatial surroundings. She does not need them, for all charitable men will unite with the crackling lips of fever struck hospital and plague blotched lazaretto In greeting her as ahe passes: "Hail! Hail! Queen Vashtl!" Taahtl Tolled. Again, I want you to consider Vashtl the Veiled. Hod she appeared before Ahasu erus and his court on that day with her face uncovered she would have shocked all the delicacies of oriental society, and the very men who in their Intoxication de manded that she come in their sober mo ments would have despised hor. As some flowers seem to thrive beet in the dark lane and in the shadow and where the sun does not seem to reach them, so God appoints to most womanly natures a retiring and un- obtruslvo spirit God once in awhile does call an Isabella to a throne, or a Miriam to strike the timbrel at the front of a host, or a Mario Antoinette to quell a French mob, or a Deborah to stand at the front of an armed battalion, crying out: "Up! Up This is the day in which the Lord will de liver Slsera into thine hand. " And when women are called to such outdoor work and to such heroic positions, God prepares them for it, and they have iron In their souls and lightning In their eye, and whirl winds in their breath, and the borrowed strength of the Lord omnipotent In tholr rlght arm. They walk through furnaces as though they were hedges of wild flowers and cross seas as though they were shim mering sapphire, and all the harpies of hell down to their dungeon at the stamp of her womanly indignation. But these are the exceptions. Generally Dorcas would rather make a garment for the poor boy, Rebecca would rather fill the trough for the camels, Hannah would rather make a coat for Samuel, the Hebrew maid would rather give a prescription for Noaman's leprosy, tho woman of Sarepta would rath er gather a few sticks to cook a meal for famished Elijah, Phebe would rather carry a letter for tho inspired apostle, Mother Lois would rather educate Timothy in the scriptures. When I see a woman going about her dally duty with cheerful dignity presid ing at the table, with kind and gentle but firm discipline presiding In the nursery, going out into the world without any blast of trumpets, following in the foot steps of him who went about doing good I say, '.'This is Voshti with a veil on.' But when I see a woman of unblushing boldness, loud voiced, with a tongue of in finite clltter clatter, with arrogant look, passing through the streets with the step of a walking beam, gayly arrayed in a very hurrlcanoof millinery, I cry out, "Vashtl has lost her veil!" When I see a woman of comely features, and of adroitness of in tcilcct, and endowed with all that the schools can do for one, and of high social position, yet moving In society, with su perciliousness and hauteur, as though she would have people know their place, and an undefined combination of giggle and strut and rhodomontade, endowed with al lopathic quantities of talk, but only home opathic infinitesimals of sense, the terror of dry goods clerks and railroad conduc tors, discoverers of significant meanings In plain conversation, prodigies of bad! nage and innuendo, I say: "Look! Look! Vashtl has lost her veil. " A Broken Heart. Again, I want you to consider Vashti tho sacrifice. Who is this I see coming out of that palace gate of Shushan)1 It seems to me that I have seen her before. She comes homeless, houseless, friendless, trudging along with a broken heart Who is she? It is Vashtl the sacrifice. Oh, what a change it was from regal position to a wayfarer's crust! A little whllo ago, approved and sought for; now, none so poor as to acknowledge her acquaintance- snip vashtl the sacrifice! Ah, you and 1 nave seen it many a time! Hero is a homo impalaced with beauty. All that refinement and books and wealth can do for that home has been done, but Ahasuerus, the husband and the father, Is taking hold on paths of sin. He Is grad ually going down. After awhile he will flounder and struggle like a wild beast in the hunter's not farther away from God, farther away from the right Soon the bright apparel of the children will turn to rags; soon tho household song will become the sobbing of a broken heart The old story over again. Brutal centaurs break ing up the marriage feast of Laplthse. The house full of outrage and cruelty and aoominatlon, while trudging forth from tne palace gate are Vashtl and her children. There are homos that arc in danger of such a breaking up. Oh, Ahasuerus, that you should stand in a home by a dissipated life destroying the peace and comfort of that home! God forbid that your children should ever have to wring their hands and have people point their finger at them as they pass down the street and say, "There goes a drunkard's child." God forbid that the little feet should ever have to trudge the path of poverty and wretchedness! God forbid that any evil spirit born of the wine cup or the brandy glass should come forth and uproot that garden and with a lasting, blistering, all consuming curse shut forever the palace gate against Vashti and the children! During the war I went to Hagerstown to look at the army, and I stood in the night on a hilltop and looked down upon them. I saw the campfires all through the valleys and all over the hills. It was a weird spectacle, those campfires, and I stood and watched them, and the soldiers who were gathered around them were no doubt talking of their homes and of the long march they had taken and of the bat tles they wore to light, but after awhile I saw these campfires begin to lower, and they continued to lower until they were all gone out and the army slept It was im posing when I saw the campfires. It was Imposing in the darkness when I thought of that great host asleep Well, God looks down from heaven, and he sees the firesides of Christendom and the loved ones gathered around these fire sides. These are the campfires where we worm ourselves at the close of the day and talk over the battles of life we have fought and the battles that are yet to coma God grant that when at lost these fires begin to go out and continue to lower Until finally they are extinguished and the ashes of con sumed hopes strew the hearth of the old homestead it may be becausso we have Gone to sleep that last long sleep From which none ever wake to weep. Now we are an army on the march of life. Then we will be an army bivouacked in the tent of the grave. A Hope and Its Fulfillment. Once more I want you to look at Vashti the silent You do not hear any outcry from this woman as she goes forth from the palace gate.

Galilei, condemned by mathematicians and scien tists, caricatured everywhere, yet waiting and watching with his telescope to see the coming up of stellar re-enforcements, when the stars In their courses would fight for the Copernican system, then sitting down In complete blindness and deafness to wait for the coming on of the generations who would build his monument and bow at his grave. The reformer, execrated by his contcra poraries, fastened in a pillory, tho slow fires of public contempt burning under him, ground under the cylinders of the printing press, yet calmly waiting for the day when purity of soul and heroslm of character will get the sanction of earth and the plaudits of heaven. Affliction, endur ing without any complaint the sharpness 01 tne pang and the violence of tho storm, and the heft of the chain and of the dark ness of night Waiting until a divine hand shall be put forth to soothe the pang and nusn the storm and release the captive. A wifo abused, persecuted and a perpetual exile from every earthly comfort waiting, waiting until the Lord shall gather all his dear children In a heavenly home and no poor Vashtl will ever be thrust out from the palace gate. Jesus, in silence and an swering not a word, drinking the gall. bearing the cross, in prospect of the rap turous consummation when Angels thronged bis chariot wheel And bore him to his throne, Then Bwept their golden haras and sang The glorious work is done. O woman, does not this story of Vashtl the queen, Vashtl the veiled, Vashtl the sacrifice, Vashti the silent, move your soul! My sermon converges Into the one absorb ing hope that none of you may be shut out of the palace gate of heaven. You can en dure the hardships and the privations and the cruelties and the misfortunes of this life if you can only gain admission there. Through the blood of the everlasting cov enant, you go through these gates or never go at alL God forbid that you should at last be banished from the society of angels and banished from the companionship of your glorified kindred and banished for ever. Through the rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ may you be enabled to 1ml tate the example of Rachel and Hannah and Abigail and Deborah and Mary and Esther and Vashti. Amen. When the "Hocking Bird" Was Kew. "The Marine band concerts at the White House grounds," observed James Ryder, who has figured as a hotel waiter for nearly half a century, were before the war a closed event as far as we colored people were concerned, for no colored persons were ever admitted to the grounds unless they went there in the capacity of nurses for children or attendants upon elderly persons. To the knowing ones, however, there was no difficulty. All we had to do was to go there with some white boys or girls and represent thatuve wore servants or some one's servants sent there for chil dren or others. No one then objected, and we could listen to the musie just the same as others. I was there when the 'Mocking Bird' was first played. It was dedicated to Miss Harriet Lane, the niece of Presi dent Buchanan, and its first performance was a big event Talk about whistling popular songs or marches these days, why, they are simply not in it The 'Mocking Bird was whistled by 'the press, the pub llo and clergy' and nearly every one else who could cock a Up. There were ' Mock ing Bird' waltzes, polkas, rcdowas and other things In that line until you could not rest As the band finished the first public rendition of the 'Mocking Bird' all eyes turned to Miss Lane, who stood the central figure in a group on the south por tico. She bowed her acknowledgments and thanks and joined the others in clap ping her hands applauding the band. Col ored people always wore their Sunday clothes when they went to the 'music,' as it was called those days, and I wish more oi them did so now." Washington Star. Advantage of the Cowpea. (1) It is a nitrogen gatherer; (2) shades me sons in summer, keeping them in a condition most suitable to the most rapid nitrification and leaves them friable and loose In tho best condition for a future crop; (3) It has a large root development. and hence pumps up from great depths and large areas the water and with it the mineral matter needed by the plant; (4) its adaptability to all kinds of soils, stlffest clays to most porous sands, fertile alluvial bottoms to barren uplands; (6) it stands the beat and sunshine of southern sum mers; (6) its rapid growth enables the farmer in the south to grow two crop9 a year on tho same soil; (7) if sown thickly, it will, by Its rapid growth and shade, effec tually smother all weeds and thus serve as a cleansing crop; (8) it is the best prepar atory crop known to the southern farmer every kind of crop grows well after It: f9 on the alluvial lands of Mississippi bot toms it serves to pump off excessive water, evaporating It through its great foliage, thus keeping the soil In a condition for most rapid nitrification during the entire growing season; (10) It furnishes a most excellent food in large quantities for both man and animals. With all of these advantages it is no wondor that it is called tho "clover of the south, "and wore It used regularly through out tho south as one of tho crops in a regu lar but short system of rotation the soils of this section would soon rival in fertility their primitive conditions.

THEY SAW THE TORNADO. U St. Loala Barters Bay It Followod a "Om at rtra m Bad rtory Anna. Up on tha top floor of the Walnwrttht building there is a coot little barber shop presided over by Louis Tlach. Tha barbers in the building, Tlach, O. C Adams, John B. Huppert and A. Rust, saw the storm from start to finish, and they tell a most remarkable story about It They lay that it was not a funnel shaped cloud such as la commonly pictured as being the shape of tornado. Each solemnly swears it was lorlzontal black cloud that moved through the city with a twisting motion, like screw, faster than any railroad train that ever ran. Preceding the black cloud waa a aense yellow cloud that looked as though its Interior was a mass of flames. From out of this cloud shot long fiery arms in every direction, and wherever one of these arms struck something went to pieces. Tlach compares the cloud to a bis pent that wriggled along up in the air and thrust out a multif orkod tongue, as though in anger. Shortly before the storm broke Huppert went up on the roof and came bock with the information that there was a tornado in sight Rust followed him and came back with a confirmation of the report, and then the two barbers went out and saw the grand marshaling of the storm in the western skies. When the rain began, they came down into the shop and the last they saw as they were coming through the scut tle was the advance guard of the tornado as It came in from the southwest The barber shop is at tho southeast cor ner of the building, and all around It are little windows, round, like the portholes In a ship The barbers stood at the south windows and watched the tornado from the time it appeared away off to the south west until a portion of it rolled up against the building and mode them wish they were somewhere else. Tlsch says they saw houses and business blocks go down before it, their view of the destruction it was wreaking being made plain by the yellow cloud of fire that preceded the storm proper. He Is sure it crossed tho river some dis tance below Park avenue, switched around when it got nearly to the Illinois shore, and started directly up the stream. In this he is borne out by the statements of the oth ers who were watching It Just as they were getting ready to move around to the oast windows, in order to observe the passing of the storm np the nvor. a gust oi wind and rain that shook the building came along, and thev were In the midst of the storm.

Then cam. the second storm, fol lowed by the Si. Louis Wooden Gutter company's fire, which they saw from their airy observatory. It waa late when they went down, after three hours of uninter rupted excitement A colored boy named Mose is one of tha valued attaches of the shop and be waa one of the spectators when the awful cloud was first seen.

Modern science is gradually disposing of a great many of the myths with which travelers have delighted to regale spell bound audiences. A particularly enter taining story has been told, of a tree be longing to the same order as the hunnn;,, It Is called the traveler's tree, because of tho large quantity of water said to he stored In the sheaths of the leaf stalks. Sensational accounts are given of travelers who have for days sought water and who, Bt the sight of one of these trees, began to weep and shout by turns, then to run, with what little strength they have, to t he-plant, grasp a stalk and fill themselves with the life giving liquid. These stories are all very well, with a good many grains of salt There are trees of this kind, and there is water in the leaf stalks, but the plants grow in regions where It rains a greater part of the time, so that there Is no diffi culty In getting water whenever it is de sired. Besides, the trees are extremely tall, and the leaves are at the very top It would therefore bo necessary for the per son to climb to the top In order to get at the loaves at all. This would be a serious undertaking for a man at death's door from thirst The trees, however, are useful to the natives and are much employed for various purposes. Tho bark is flattened and makes very good floors. The loaves are made into drinking vessels, plates and other utensils. They are worked into mats and are used as thatching and walls on the huts. It Is interesting to follow these wild and vi sionary stories to their source, when it is almost always found that, although there Is a shadow of truth In them, there is nothing specially remarkable. They are merely useful things, valuable In certain lines, but wholly destitute of the marvel ous qualities attributed to them. New York JjOrteer. THINKS THE MOON IS SAFE.

Deloncle's venture for tha Paris exhibition certainly sounds big, but upon carefully going over your oorrespond ent'a report it seems to me perhaps wrongly that the learned Frenchman to not about to eclipse the Mount I lam 11 too glass; neither will he equal the larger In strument being set up at Chicago. These are refractors pure and simple, but with ail the resource of the glasarnaker brought to bear in producing tha most perfect lenses. "We read nothing of the kind with re gard to M. Deloncle's instrument We are told of a hnge disk of glass nearly 7 feet In diameter, but upon your correspondent'a showing this is not to form either the ob jective for a refracting telescope or a mir ror for a reflecting telescope, but a plana mirror to use on the principle of a aidcro stat, while the lenses of flint and crown glass, which form the true telescope, are 1 meter 25 centimeters in diameter that is, about that of the Chicago glass, whose power It cannot possibly equal, from tha loss of light caused by tho moon's rays be ing reflected from his plane mirror through his huge tube that is to say, the rays are received secondhand from the reflector.

I vonture to think that upon my own principle I could produce ten times the effect at a tithe of the amount If I am wrong, a couplo of years' thoughtful experimenting have been in vain. " A Paulon For Bazaars. The new Duchess of Marlborough thinks that the salient feature of England is its devotion to bazaars. Of this she judges by her correspondence, which includes scores and scores of letters asking her to open or otherwise patronize these forms of mingled charity and amusement Her grace is, of course, for the moment the greatest "draw" at any lottery or fancy fair that can bo found, and this the children of light are wise enough to know. The duchess, however, too simple to see her own person al attraction, can only suppose that a pre vailing passion for bazaars is a thing to be reckoned upon If you come to live In an eastern a comparatively eastern land. London Cbw?trf-. In the vicinity of Boquet, West moreland Co., Pa., almost any one can tell yon how to cure a lame back or stiff neck. They dampen a piece of flannel with Chamberlain's Pain Balm and bind it on the affected parts and in one or two days the trouble has disappeared. This same treatment will promptly cure a pain in the side or chest. Mr. E. M. Frye, a prominent merchant of Boquet. ppeaks very highly of Pain Balm, and his recommendations have had much to do with making it popular there. For sale by D.J.
