At thn opeuing of the service Dr. Tal mage read trie names of about Of ty new members. He then made running com mentary on the conspiracy to kill Paul, an recorded in Acts xxiii.

If there be only rooru for one in the llfe-hnnt got in 5 our self. If there lie a burden to carry supervise other men while they shoulder it. You lie the digit ami other people the ciphers on the right hand Hide nothing lu themselves, but augmenting you. In opposition to that Hellish theory hear thai of Paul, when ho says: "Bar ye one another's burdens, and ho fill 1111 the law of Christ." No one escapes bur (lent. Ttiey come ilowu ou both should ers. They come down ou the head. They come down ou the heart. 1 look over the audience, und all sec ins well and easy aud bright, but you all have at) much a you can Hit, ami some more than you can liit. Now, fuul proposes iu the text to split up these burdens into fragments. You take part of mine ami I wwl take part of yours and all of ub part of each other's load. 'Che Temple of Uaalbec had built into its wall three Hones, at a height of twenty feet, each of the stones weighing 1, UK) tons. The machinery by which that Immense hefi Had lilted is anions the lost arts. But the Gospel machinery mentioned in the ?ext will yet lift a vaster and heavier tonnage of the world's burdens oil t fi great eufTerlng heart of the race. In other words, what we all need is more of the spirit of helpfulness. Mrs. Apple ton of Boston, the daughter of Daniel Webster, was dying after lonar illness. The great lawyer, retiring from the court-room where he hud been arguing au important case, visited the house ot his daughter, aud entering her room she said: "Father, what are you doing without an overcoat ou this chill day V" Mr. Webster weut to the next room, and iu a burst of tears, said: "Dying herself aud only thinking ot my health 1" How beautiful is concern for others instead of takiug care of ourselves.

Encourage newspaper men, for you know what annoyances they go through. Their most elaoorately pre pared articles sometimes throw u out because of pres sure on the coin in us; expected to make ' accurate report of some speaker who is so.l idistinel of utt r iiicn his entire dis course is one long stenographic guess; thn midnight that finds ou asleep de manding that they be wide awake; their most careful work defamed by one care less type-setter; their lives ground out lietween the wheels of our great brain manufactories; sickened with the ap "prdaches of those who want a newspaper commendation or retraction; now called on to sketch a funeral, "and now a pug- ilistic encounter; shitted from place to place by the sudden revolutions any day liable to come in any journalistic establishment; precarious lite becoming more aud more precarious.

You will have them to plumb your pipes, to calcimine your ceilings, to hang your chandeliers, to put down your carpet, to repair your furniture, to swing your gates, to grain Jour doors,- to fashion your wardnr es. o not imitate those who never say any thing except V Und fault. If a job be promptly aud skillfully executed, re cognize the fact. Say right out, "The garment fits beautifully," "the room Is . .g exquisitely papered," "the book is well , bouud," "the house is grandly finished," "the work is splendidly done."

No duuger of being spoiled by vour high appreciation. Encouruge the farmers. You often meet them when they come to the city markets, or to your place of business, or when you take jour summer rounds. Candidates for oflice just before election go through the country on political platforms, orating about the indepen dent life of the farmer. Independent of what? That is all stuff I I was. born on a farm, and have worked on a 'farm, and know all about it, not having tepn 'it he eity till nearly grown, and I tell yon there are no people who nave it harder or need more sympathy than farmers. Independent of what? Of the curculio that Btings the peach trees? Of the rust In th.i wheat? Of the rain when the rye is do n ? Independent of the grasshop pers? Independent of the locusts? In dependent of the drought that burns up the fields? Ii. dependent of the potato bug? Independent of the cow with a hol low hoi n. and sheep wild the foot disease, and the horse wilh a nail iu the hoof? Independent of the cold that freezes out the winter grain? Independent of the morning when he has to shovel himself out of the .-.now hanks,aud stand thrash ing his iiunib finger around his body to keep i hem from being frosted, and goes In with frozen ears ami froz -n feet? aiicy. farmers who have made their for tunes iu the city, and o out to build houses with all the modern improve ments, and have enough money to make farming a luxury, may need no solace, but in these days the yionmnry who have fo make their living out of the soil, clothe their families, educate their children, pay their taxes, aud meet the interest of mortgaged farms, have n trugglo that is terrific, and you had better lold up your gaseous anil imeb cile speeches about the independent life of a farmer, and substitute such words of sympathy and encouragement as you ran Und, iu their escape from city temp Cations and city conventionalities and city epidemics. One of the most vivid memories of my boyhood is my father on a fearfully hot day, just come from (lie harvest field, sealed on the tlonr-ill because too faint to come in, the perspi ration streaming over forehead and chin, and my mother trying to resusci tate him wnh a cup ol water he was too weak to hold to his owu lips, and lie saying: "Don't bo frightened. Nolh lug the mutter. Little tired, that's all." And ever siuce then when i have heard political speakers talking 'about the in dependent life of a farmer, 1 have seeti through the sham of their utterance. Parmeia want not flattery, but sympa thy. Encourage your physicians. You thank him when he brings you out of an aw ful crisis of disease; hut do you thank him for treating the incipient stages ol dis-asa so skillfully that you do not Hi nk as far down as an awful crisis? There is much cheap and heartless wit about the physician, but get sick and how quick you send for him. Some say doctors are of more harm than good, and there is a book written entitled, "Every Man His Own Doctor." That author ought to write one more book and enti tle it, 'Every Man His Own Cndertuker.' Do you think physicians are hard heart ed because they see so much pain? Ah, no! The most eiumineui surgeon of the uist generation lu Ntw York came into the clinical depHrtmentof the New fork Medical College when there Wits a se vere operation to be performed upon a little child. The great surgeon said to the students gathered around: ''Gen tlemen, ihere are surgeons here who can do this just ss well as I can. You ill excuse uie, therefore, if I retiro. I annul endure the sight of suffering as well as I once could." There are so many iriais, so many inlerruplioiis.su many sxliauslious in a physician's life, that 1 rejoice he gets so many encourage ments. Before him open ail circles of ociety. He is welcomed to cot and mansion. Children shout when they see his gig coming, aud old men, recogniz ing his step, look up and say, "Doctor, Is that you? ' He stands between our families and the grave, fighting bick the disorders that troop up from their encampments by the cold river. No one ever hears such hearty thanks as the doctor. Under God he makes the blind see, the deaf hear, the lame walk. The path of such is strewed wilh the bene dictions of those whom they have be friended. Perhaps there was iu our house an hour of evil foi boding. We thought nil hope was gone. The doctor eame in four times that day. The children-put aside their toys. We walked ou tip toe and whispered, and at every sound said, "hush!" How loud the clock ticked, ami with all onr care the banis ter creaked. Thedoctor stayed all night, and concentrated all his skill. At larit the restlessness of the little snflerw subsided into a sweet, calm slumber, and ihe doctor looked around and whis pered: "The crisis is past." When propped up with pillows the sick one sat in the easy chair, and through the lattice the soft south wind tried hard to blow a roseleaf in o the shaded cheek, and we-were all glad, aud each of us children brought a violet or a clover top from the lawu to the lap of the conval escent, and little Bertha stood on a high chair with the brush, smoothing her mother's hair, and it was decided that the restored one might soon ride out for a mile or two. Our house was bright again. Ami as wi helped our medical adviser into the gig, we saw uot that the step was broken or his horse sprung In the knees. For the first time iu our life we realized what doctors are worth. In some ot our minds among the tender-" est of all memories is that ol the old family physician. Encourage all good lawyers. They are so often eheated out of their fees, and have to endure the villainous air of nnveutilated Court rooms, aud bear such ponderous responsibilities, aud having against the sharks in their pro fession to maintain the dignity of their high ealllug. Honored by the facts that the only one permitted to stand on Mount aiual was Moses, the lawyer, aud that the Bible ealls Christ the Advocate, cheer them with the transcendent im portance of their profession, which has had on its bench a Chief Justice Story and at its bur a Uufus Choate. Encourage all teachers, of schools; their work is Hhnrions and illy compen sated. To take forty or fifty boys whose fathers and mothers suppose them to be precocious, and keep those parents from finding ont their mistake; to take an empty head and fill it; to meet the demands of people who expect their children bv fifteen years of age to be come mathematicians, metaphysicians and rhetoricians; to work successfully that great stuffing machine, the modern school system, is no small task. En courage them by the magnitude and the everlastingness of their work; aud if your children advance, thank their In structors. Encourage all invalids by the names ot those who had the same malady and recovered. Instead of discoursing upon the sunken eye or asking them if they think the color in their cheek is hectic, or telling them of all thn people yon have known in which the same disease ended fatally, or exclaiming how bad they look. Cheerfnl words are more soothing than chloral, more stimulating than cognac, more tonic than all bit ters. Many an invalid has recovered through the Influence of cheerful sur roundings. Encourage all those who are starting in life by being reminiscent. If you are a great merchant, by telling young merchants how you felt when you got your flrst customer, and had your luncheon back of the counter, with one eye on the door looking for the next entrance. If you are an established lawyer, by telling a young lawyer ho you broke down lu your first speech be fore a jury. If an old minister, by be ing merciful in jour examination of young theologues. If au old doctor, by telling young practitioners how at the start you mistook nieaslesfor scarlatina. Say all the encouraging things you can say, aud if you have nothing of that kind to offer, set your teeth lightly together and draw the curtain of your lips close down over them and put your hand over your mouth and keep sileuce. A man in Germany met a lad on a bridge wi'h a cage of birds, and he ask ed the price of them, and bought anil paid for the cage of birds. Then he opened the door of the cage and let the birds fly out into the sunlight of the forest. "What did you do that for?" said some who saw the purchase aud liberation. "Ah," said he, "I was once a captive myself, and I know how good it is to be free.- aiy mends, let your hardships in life make you sympathetic wilh the hardships of others. Free now yourselves, help others to get free. When Governor Alexander Stephens lay dying tie persisted in having imsmess mat tern brought to Ms bedside. 1 am told there were severaiIuiiortant petitions for pardon of prominent criminals, the petitions signed by influent iu men. There was also au application of au old wo man in jail, signed only by herself. The old Christian Governor said: "I have so often got well now. but I shall not recover. Where is thai application for the pardon of that woman in the peni tentiary? As far as I can tell she bus no friends. It seems to me that she has suffered, enough. Give me that pen that i may sign her pardon." some one thinking he was too ill, and perhaps was not quite aware of what he was do Ingsaid: "Governor perhaps you had belter wait till to morrow, when yon feel stronger aud better." Then the old Governor's eye flashed, and he said: "I know what I am about.', and wilh his sign itnre to that friendless woman's pardon the last word of his life was written, and the pen fell from the pale and rheumatic and dying hand forever. O my soul, how beautiful his closing moment, spent in helping one who hud no helper! Encourage all the troubled by stories of relief aud reassociatiou. Encourage the old by thoughts ()f eternal juvene sceme, Encourage all the herdsmen among the troughs of sin to become banqueters at the fathers' hoiuesieud. Give us toues in the unijor key other .ban in i he minor. Give us Coronation iustead of Faomi. You have seen rail cars so arranged that ihe one going down lull pulls the one going uphill, and those who find life up lull ought to be helped by those wnu have passed the heights of life and are descending to the vale. As far as possible, let us take each other's place in the conflict. A gentleman in England died, leaving all his propertv to two sons. The one son staying at heme destroyed the la-t will and testament of his father, and de clared that his long absent brother was dead and all the property belonged to him. the living son. I he absent brother returned and claimed his share. The trial cme in Court, aud Judge and jurors were bribed to declare that the returned son ws no s' n nt all, but an Impostor. Sir Matthew liale, the pride of the English Coort-room and of all jurisprudence for the last 2X) years, heard of the great I: justice, put off his robes aud put on the garb of a miller and went to the village where the trial was going on. got into the Court room and was chosen as a juror. Ten piecs ot gold were given to ihe other jurors and live pieces to Sir Matthew Hale in the miller's dress. The jury cauie in with a verdict against the right of the returned brother. Then one of the jurors rose and said: "Hold, My Lord; we are not all agreed. The other jurors have ten pieces of gold given them, in bribe. 1 only live." "Where do you come from?" said the judge. T came from Weftioinster Hall," said the miller; "my name is Matthew Hale, Lord Chief-Justice of the King's Bench." So he broke up the villainy, aud justice went on to triumph The discarded brother got his share of the inheritance. All for another. Sir AJatthew Hale put off his official robes and put on the miller's dress. So Christ, that we might get heavenly Inheritance aud defeat Satanic plotting for our ruin, put off heavenly robes aud attired himself In human fllesh.and in that dis guise secured for us an eternal portion. Now we are the sons of God and joint heirs. We went off from home, bnt have got back again In time to secure our in heritance. Christ bearing our burdens, we ran afford to bear each other's burdens. A DARK OUTLOOK FOR THE ROLLING MILLS. Chicago. April ltt. President Porter of the North Chicago Rolling Mills, states that the mills will again be in operation In three or six months or not at all. They will not be started while the present prices; continue. Foor thousand men have been thrown out of work by the stoppage of these mills. Mr. Porter thinks that one-third of the rails needed this year are already in market, and expresses the opinion that the outlook for the laborers now oat of employment is a very dark one.

Monday was the day set for Investi gating if any frauds had been perpetra ted in our town in counting the votes cast last fall. The depositions were taken before P. M.Smith, Notary Public, at his oftlce on Main street. Subpoenas were served on Messrs. Daniel M Smith, Philip Fraser, John A, Bartlett. Orlando M. Brown, J. T. Smith James L. Swan and Alexander 0. Smivh, to give all they knew about the manner of count ing the ballots. On the day mentioned, Mr. McKinley with his counsel, Mr. Ambler, and Mr. Potts, counsel for Wallace, were on hand, coming in on the train from Liverpool. For some reason, unknown to tu, bat three witnesses appeared, vis: D. M. Smith, A. G. Smith and O. M. Brown. About the sum and substance of their depositions were that the two Smiths were judges ot the election, and Brown is a railroad engineer who cast bis ballot as he supposed for McKinley, but wrapped a Justice ticket inside of IU On handing his ballot In at the polls, he was asked if it was a State ticket. He replied that it was, and turned to walk away, when the judge said: "Don't yon want to vote for Justice?" His reply was that he had cast both together, bat it was too late then to separate them, as they had been dropped into the box. When the vote was counted, this ticket was not Included but was laid on the window. That was the pith of the mock Investigation at Wellsville, Monday. McKinley left town very jubilant over the fact (In his estimation) that be had gained one vote in Wellsville. There was another ballot similar to the above, of two tickets folded together and cast for Jonathan H. Wallace which were laid aside and not counted. Why was not that fact certified to? Also mention might have been made of the fact that a ticket was voted and counted for McKinley that was marked by pencil all over the back of It, which was Illegal in the strict sense of the law. Still two other tickets that had Mc Kinley 's name erased and the name (is read by the judges and entered upon the tally-sheet) of "Win. II. Wallace" written in place, which might be found, In fact, J to have been written "Jno. H. Wallace. as Is believed by some. rv oy was not that ballot-box opened aud the matter thoroughly Investigated. aud it any mistakes were made, had tnem reclined? Were the counsel or both parties afraid of the contents of the ballot-box of Yellow Creek precinct? We believe the Judges ot election here acted impartially in counting the vote, and did what they believed to be their lawful duty in reference to every ticket; but counting a great n amber of badly scratched tickets is no slight task, and mistakes might have inadvertently oc curred, or a wrong entry made on the tauy sneet, in counting nve straight —Ohio Sun, 12th. TAXING THE LIQUOR TRAFFIC. The New Law-Its Provisions Succinctly Stated. The Legislature which little mere 'arid 4!fto than a year ago passed t tax law, which after having 4diWfiiod the party was knocked in the head by the Supreme Court, his now tried .its hand at a similar piece of work. Vie Scott bill, so-called, and having for t purpose vne taxation or me liquor traillc passed both Houses of the Leglsfltnre Tuesday afternoon and is now aaw. Whether it will remain a law or not de pends now upon the action of the Su preme Court when a test is made. The provisions of the law are as follows: 1, Every person or firm engaged In selling intoxicating liquors shall pay an annual tax of $200, or if ale, beer and wine only are sold an annual tax of $100. ' 2. All saloons In operation on or be fore the third Monday of April must cav the $200 or $100 tax on or before the 20th of the following Juns. If the busi ness has been carried on for less than a year the tax shall be in pro)ortlon as the time is to the whole time except that the tax shall in no case be less than $25. 3. The tax, with all costs aad penal ties that may be, shall be a lien upon the property where the business Is car ried on. That is, if the man who keeps the saloon, drng store, or whatever name the place may have, rente the pro perty where the business is carried on and refuses or neglects to pay the tax the Sheriff may levy on the real estate, no matter who the owner may be, and sell it to satisfy the tax. 4. Kvery person who deals in Intoxi cating liquors must give his name, a de scription of the premises where the bnsiuess is carried on, the name of the person owning the premises and a state ment as to whether the business is in malt or vinous Honors or both to the as sessor, who shall make retnrn to the County Auditor. And if any person shall refuse to give this information or give It wrongfully he shall be assessed $375. F. The tax must be paid to the County Treasurer, the same as other taxes. And if not paid a penalty of 20 per centum shall be added and collected by law. 6. The law does not apply to the sell ing of liquors upon the prescription of reputable physicians, nor the sale by manufacturers In quantities of one gal lon and npward. 7. The money arising from the tax shall be paid, three-fourths of It, into the Connty Treasury and one-fourth into the connty poor fund. In the cities the money so arising, less the one-fonrth paid to the county poor fund, shall be divided, one-half to the general fund and one-half to the police fund. 8. AH saloons, bars and places where liquors are sold must be closed on Son day, and none sold that day upon penal ty of not more than $100 and Imprison ment, provided, however, that city conncils may. If they see proper, allow beer and native wine to be sold on San day. 8. Any municipal corporation may, at the pleasure of Us council, shut np the saloons and prohibit the traffic In intoxi cating liquors at all times. 10. Whoever sells Intoxicating Ilqnors to a minor or to a person In the habit of getting Intoxicated, shall be fined from $25 to $100 and Imprisoned not lest than five nor more than thirty days. Inquiry among the saloon men and liquor dealers reveals great dissatisfac tion with the law, almost as great as that which met the Pond law. Repub licans generally say that the passage of the law will do the party great Injury. Prohibitionists denounce the law bitter ly because It allows city eonnells to per mit saloon? to be open on Sunday, and because the old law against the sale of liqnor to be drank on th premises is re pealed. Lawyers who have examined it generally consider its constitutionality doubtful. MASSACHUSETTS CHARITY. Disgusting Tales Told as Butler's Investigation. Motivation. Boston, April 19. In the Tewksbury Almshouse Investigation to-day, Mary E. Bowen. an Inmate In 1875. testified that all patients were bathed in one bath-tub, some with running sores; beds were covered with vermin; rats would jump on the beds; gnawed the feet of patients; one woman dying of consump tion hajl Ant ttnt am t A.mnl.Al .fr- water closets were filthy and covered w ho nutter uora ore ot patients, ly ing persons were ont in wooden boxes. A drunken woman was taken In one dav and died soon after, being given nieufeine by Dr. Nellie Marsh. Frequently wnen patients died new ones were put In the same beds without the clothing being changed. Gov. Butler complained of the defense making constant efforts to oiacxen tne character or witnesses. Witness said Dr. Marsh gave her a dose of medicine and she felt it rising up In her throat like a heavy weight. Mrs. Kowell.a nnrse, gave her an emetic. Dr. Harsh afterward said she made a mis take 'and the emetic was a fortunate thing. DUBLIN DOTS. The Hangman Gets Something to Do in Ireland. Dublin, April 18. On resumption of the trial of Daniel Curley this morning, Adams began the argument for the de fense. He declared that the evidence given by Kavanagh did not show that Curley was at Phoenix Park on May 6th. His presence there, said Adams, was in dicated by James Carey, who said Cur ley was In command, but Carey so swore to save his own neck. He was doubt less himself in command of the assas sins. Attorney General Potter, on behalf of the Crown, declared the evidence in sup port of the alibi worthless and conflict ing. Though Peter Haulon professed to have been In Curley's company the four hours covering the time of the assassi nations, and claimed during that time he met various persons, the defense pro duced but one of those persous.
