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

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

firm discipline presiding In the nursery,

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

of dry goods clerks and railroad conduc

In plain conversation, prodigies of bad!
nage and innuendo, I say: "Look! Look!

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.

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.

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.

valued attaches of the shop and be waa
one of the spectators when the awful cloud
was first seen. He instantly started for
the ground, and he got there in a hurry.
Be forgot about the elevators and made
slide, it is averred, down ten flights of
stairs. Ko amount of persuasion could get
him back to the shop hat night Next
morning when he was being twitted about
having run away from the storm he re

public, Tha Trea of tho Traveler.
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

It Secret Will Not Be Revealed by tha
Big; Paris Telescope.
George Manvlllo Fenn, in a letter to the
London News, has this to say about the
groat Paris telescope now making at Paris,
and which, according to recent stories, is
to show "the moon one yard off:"
"I have read with much interest the ar
ticle of your Paris correspondent bearing
the above heading, from the fact that for
the past two years I have been experiment

telescope or ostio class of far greater dow-

upon carefully going over your oorrespond

wrongly that the learned Frenchman to

strument being set up at Chicago. These
are refractors pure and simple, but with

to bear in producing tha most perfect
"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.
Instead of primarily from the planet as in
the case of all groat refracting telescopes.
"From the above circumstances tha
image to bo produced must be fainter upon
M. Deloncle's principle, and he proposes to
weaken It still more by casting the image
upon a screen instead of directly upon the
retina of the observer's eye. For popular
visual purposes M. Dclonclo's Instrument
will doubtless be a success, but it will only1
prove so from the spectacular point of view
to amuse an audience. Its sclenttflo val
ue will be nil, while its cost seems to ma
absurd. 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.

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.
