Tbo Adventists did nut wear a particularly jwlrilant
look yesterday, although still continuing In the faith.
Elder Thurman ban been uneasy for a couple of days
past. According lo hla reckoning, tbs Iwattlo of Arma

troubled at the otiAlintrly peaceful condition of tf

And then shall appear the sign of tho Son of Man In
heaven j and then ahall all thu tribe* of tho earth
mourn.
They have been somewhat troubled about Ihe delay
In appearance of that sign, mid considerable nervous
nesa and anxiety was manifest In their manner. But
if they wore a lilllo nervous for fear that uflcr all it
might not Iso, there were a grout many mol o who wore

Persons of tho Adventist belief have been applied to a
great dual recently for Information on tho sulilctt, and
tho Book of Daniel ban ImeU conned studiously, A
good many people said their prayers last night with
extraordinary fervor, and resigned themselves to sloop
with somo perturbation of feeling. Tho Adveulkts
have been receiving ncroni-orJcs to their number all
during tho past week. Yesterday morning, three jier
auns were

and thus received into thilr communion. To ho
plunged facc-downwnrd three limes In Ice-cold water
Is nn unpleasant ordoal, and with the high wind nml
heavy wash of yesterday tho carcmony was very severe
to (he fie«h.
Elder Thurman secluded himself from tho public
all day, duvolltig a great portion of the time to mmoit,
agonizing entreaty to God. Tho majority of thorn
during Uio morning and afternoon wore gathered to
gether at (heir plaeo of meeting, No. Iln Desidatnes
street. They tat nbout the room with their dinner
basket* and other Impedimenta, presenting n rather
spiritless nppeamnee. Tho front of tbo hull Is par
(liluncd off fur tho residence of u family, and hero din
ner was cooked ond a table spread at which they ate.
Children ran about, played and squalled, and, although
together, (ho comiwny looked more like a parly of em
igrant" than a company of ealuls ewelllng the coming
of their Lord, They were greatly auuoyciPby contin

The nymphs who rcMdo along Hoisted and other
streets m the vicinity sailed In, slurcd, and giggled.
Tho railroad bauds mode it a lonng'ng place, aud wore
often rude oud offensive In Ibolr deport*
nicut. They boro all these annoyances with
groit meekness, however, and comforted themselves
with thoughts of their approaching triumph.
The aged, white-haired woman who has been such
» conspicunuH (Ifliiroiat their gatherings shook her
withered baud at so/uo of Iho Intruders, end said,
“You may scoff now, but to-nlgbt you will be dumb
.with fear and trembling. *' The children displayed a
fluency In the use of scriptural phraseology that would
have delighted Brother llunnm-inl, had that converter
of tho Infantile hem been present. Quo theologian of

Notwithstanding tho depression of fueling that was
manifest, tberu were .

almost up to tho last hour. At 4:30 soma of tha
brethren consulted together In regard to three pontons
who wished to bo baptized. They estimated that
Christ would appear nt Jerusalem in alout cn hour
and a half, and althouglvit would not bo until mid
night that this portion of (ho earth would roll around
so as to como under (ho sett of Ills glory*,
it was a mooted point whether this differ
ence of time could bo bold to count prior la
His coming, and so nfford ttino In which persona
could he still taken Into the Church by baptism, nr
whether (ho fact that He had actually como to tbo
earth would overndo oil other considerations, Tho
Adventists showed themselves to bo wise In tbtir gen
eration In not revealing tho place where they were to
hold their lost supper on earth. Although tha secret
was spread among many, they were alt scrupulously
reticent, and no intelligence of Ibrir Intended move
ments could bo obtained. Thoy departed, a few at a
limp, mill! tho hall was finally vacated, oud so
rigid wore they in tho exclusion of all not In
their comronnlon from (heir final exercises, that
other Adventists wore denied all Information as to tho
quarter* thoy had obtained tor their Aunt exercises.
They believed that It would not grow dark last ulght,
as declared by tho Scriptures lu thp tallowing:
Tho Lord my Oad shall come . . . and It shall
con* to pass In that day (list the light, shall not bo
clear nor dark, hut It ahsll be ono day, which shall lm
known to tho Lord, not day nor night For “It shall
come to pass that at evening lima it shall ho light."

yesterday evening, there was a peculiar yellow light
diffused through the air. This gave them fresh heart
and hope.
This name thunder-storm, however, which lightened
their hearts, saddened those of hundreds of others.
Thera were many nervous people who viewed
with terror these darkening skies and flashing light*
nings. They were leas inclined to disbelief limn the
day before,and actually began to imagine that there
wa« something in Elder Thurman's calculations after
all, and that it might bo well to “ make their aonls."
Tlio storm came up Just as the tollers were reluming
homo, and the Second Advent was the only subject of
mnveisallon on the curs. That little thunder-storm
was of interest, in that it allowed how grout is (he
rc'crvo fund of superstitious fear in the human
nrcast. No one can 1 c found to-day who will own

As was related alwve. tho Adventists slipped off In
order to avoid being bothered by the liiovllnkle moh of
curious. They took tho chairs at Stanley H ill, loaded
them on. a wagon driven by one of ibe brethren, and
scut ihi'tn off. Tho reporter, however, could not af
ford to lose so peculiar u sight ns that of their solemn
awaiting of (he Advent day. and so set mil lu pursuit
of them, with a very uncertain duiv. His labors were
rewarded with success, and ho finally discovered (hem
nt Svea Hall, on tho corner of Weils and Superior
streets. This placo is controlled by
(he BcandlmVlant. who have contributed many
adherents to tho faith, and was obtained without dllh
cully, which would not have been tho case with the <
Catholic or many of the German hulls. They needed
n largo room, slues, including tho children, (boro were
fully IHO of them. They had local iho jxissuvcr sup

TnlS JURY.
The Impaneling of the Jnry took all the morning
and a portion of the afternoon. Alter twelve men
were selected Mr. Oondy objected to m»»st of them,
partly on the ground that aome of the Juror* had Inca
drawn by a special venire, jiarlly because they had
already served two weeks. The objections were sus
tained, and others were drawn. Tne following is the
panel os finally accepted: Hatnnel Rue'd, E. 8. Lacy,
Thomas Vasrault, J. U. Wlllhms, Jimc* Murray, Rob.
ert L. Orr, John German, John Ryan, W. I*. Chad
wick, Charles N. Moore, J. E. Law, and James
Mitchell.
TIIK OPENINO AIUIUMENT
was made by Mr. E. A, Small, who, a*<l't«d by Rldney
Smith, Is the couuicl for the plalnliir. Mr. Small
stated the ground of the milt, that the 7'ihim, 011 the
27th
thsuc, published h false end scandalous telegram that
the lion, U. F. Crawford bad been delected in
tag in hts nlghl-shlrt from the chamber of Uieplalntiif.
It was claimed that the publication of this arth lo mu.
malicious, and that ancwsjwpfr could not I*- allowed
s ich latitude; that the retraction was not published
In Uiosimo manner as the first article; that, even
though it were, such retraction did not and could not
tdtMuale'y repair the damage done, and that 3 reform
should l>o begun and a chock given to the Uceuso of
the press,
Mn. DKXTUn,
who, with Mr. Ooudy, Is the couuh-J for thn difrn*e,
opened ou Itebalf or the defendant. IL* mid that It
was prnb tble that It was uot entirely owing to Mis*
Early that the suit bad bccu commenced; that It wns
partly to Inaugurate a reform ag tlual ucwxpapcrs. It
waa the taw, generally, that when a ih.tbou had made
an ample apology for an unintentional wrong done,
which was accepted, It would ba on accora and snlis
fictloD. In the present case an ample apology had
liecn made, and. If it wore not siithdcut,
the defendant waa ready to do what tnoro
woifld ho right. Ho bad ulVuml hh columns to the
plalntilT and her friends, and had done all he could.
Before the article was publlrhed four letter* Lad been
received by the editor of the /‘fme*, ststlug in sub
stance the facts etuted la the article lu ({uc'tlon, and
(hose letters being apparently written by persons of
note lu Rockford,’wero certainly sunicii nt authority
for the publication. But no damages could be given
which would compensate for character, and It w.v>
urged that It would have Iwn bitter Lad tho plaint!ll
accepted the apology, and forborne I j begin legal pro
ceedings.
Tbe counsel for (he plaintiff then called
MB. A. W. PATTEUftOV.
the business-manager of the Time*, und proceeded to
j rove the publication of the Hbjl. This woe, how
ever, Admitted by the conned for the defendant, and
Mi. Hindi then proceeded to find out something con
cerning tlio wealth of Mr. Storey, and in - value of the
ii me*, Mr. I’attcnon** Ideas wireindefinite, but. In his
opinion, tlio value of tbo building, lan I. nml inacliluery
was nltout The wituors could not tell what
the franchise of the paper was worth, nor tbo amount
or value of the other property owned by Mr, Storey.
The circulation of the 'Jimtn ntthut time was about
117,000 of the dally Issue and Ifi.OWof the weekly,
Mr. Ooudy thou objected that the declaration had
alleged that (ho Chicago Timet liad published & certain
article, and that the counsel had offered in evidence
three papers, tho dally, weekly, and tri-wcekly, avhlit
ho thought was Incompctcni, and that (lie plaintiff
should no compelled to elect which me ho wished to
refer to. Tuu Judge, however, held that tho three
papers could nil bo included under the count lu tho
declaration.
then took tho stand, and tcalillrd that ebo was the
IdaliitifT. oud had lived in Rockfurd all her life; had
icoa absent a largo portion of her time during tho
past Ihrco winters Id Bprlngtleld, and hcramo ac

tho cars near Curllnvlile. when alio was visiting lu tho
Bouthero part of the Bl.de. She returned home tho
next day, to bo among her friends; and then come to
Chicago, with her father when the suit was com

lie testified (bat bo had received four letters by mall
In regard to the article published. They were rclerred
without reading to an asabtuit editor, Mr. Marlin,
who bad charge of Urn correspondence of the ]«rer
from abroad. The witness aid not write the article
nor rend it before it was published, lie first knew of
tin publication from some of the other pnners. He
directed a retraction to bo written and published.
Several questions were then asked to show that the
publication was made inadvertently, uud that steps
were taken after stilt was brought to find out the
truth, hut the Judge ruled them out, on the ground
that the stops were taken after the libel was made
known. The retraction was competent evidence in
mitigation of damages, but not thu ways and means
adopted subsequent to publication for that pnrnjse.
Mr. Ooudy then offered to show that the defendant
offered n reward, and that ho acnl a reporter to Kook
ford, hut, on objection offered, the Judge refused to
admit the evidence.
The witness then testified that he did not have any
conversation with Air, Early before the publication of
tho retraction. He did not know him ur Mr. Craw
ford. Ho had two of the letters received by him ot the
time, but could not tell where tho others hud gone. He
did not know whether tho nrllcio was a
digest of the letters. He only knew that
tho letters related to some scandal.
Ho vraa not acquainted with L. A. Trowbridge, >l.
M, CuriHtritcr, 11. H. Waldo, or Blodgett, the
supposed writers nf the letter*.
The witness did not observe that one of (he let
ters was particularly vile in its expre- stone. Ho did
not know whether the editor of tho Rockford OtuelU,
Sir. Kmltb, telegraphed to know whether R. P. Porter,
Hie regular correspondent, had written the nrllcio. He
was not lu tho habit of attending to such dispatches.
The witness did not remember who was tho regular
correspondent.
Mr. Gundy then proposed to read (he tw'o letters uf
ferod in evidence, hut sir, Hitmll objected, and the case
wa* then postponed until this morning,'

hereafter bo known as " Brlo-a-Brsc,'* and
that or “ Nature and Science," has been su*

May contributions Include Illustrated papers
on “ The Elder Myths,” by the Rev. William

now “Grand Opera-House of Paris,” by
Fred A, Schwab} and on the “ Baltimore
Bonapartos,” There are more of the old
letters, which, it may comfort some doubt*
ing readers to know, are genuine antiquities.
Among the stories is one by George W.
Cable, the writer of the remarkable Creole
Sketches; the poets are Cello Thaxlor, Mrs.
Hunt, and J. Maurice Thompson, and others.
Among the Essays and Reviews there are
“ Some Booont Women Poets,” ond a paper
on Chinese Education.
Col. Waring’s Second Illustrated Paper,
describes “ The Drainage of Haarlem Lake
—the largest operation of that kind over
undertaken by man.” The story roads like a
romance, rather than a history of a groat en
