Something About tit ItrgaUr Annual
SporUcl) of tit City on tho Mlaauurl.
CThattb rrriiiiia Has liven In i'at
YarThi iVur'a rrtri-iuiii.
On t)ie nltjlit of Tuewlny, Oct. 4, tho
mysterious nnlcr of Vcilwl l'rojrtieU will
give ot St. Iium wiint mo ncriiiii or wie
order is rtleusi-tl to pmclfiliu It '(traml
nocturn.il pageant and ball." Tho Veiled
Prophets ftiul their pawnnt arenmoiiji tho
tandard attractions of St. I.oula during
the autumn. This year tlu-y celebrate
their tenth anniversary with a parade
which It Is proniihed will exceed In mag
nificence anythlnir they have hereto
fore pnsonted. The Veiled Prophets'
poKeaut coiwIhM of a series of "tloatu" or
moving staifes oa which ore arranged
Interesting tableaux. Kadi Moat U drawn
by four burses, covered by long blankets
on which are enr broldered the leUers "V.
P.," led by four mysterious Individuals,
cloaked and marked. Kach is brilliantly
Illumined by tho colored fire from dozens
of torches borne by attendants on either
side. At intervals along the line of the
procession are bands of music. In front
of each lloat is carried a banner bearing
tho numter of the limit and the subject of
tho tableau on it. At tho head of tho
column rides a platoon of police. I no
scene on tho streets during the possnge of
the pageant is strange and extremely inter
esting. Along the line or marcn mo streets
aro brilliantly illuminated. Long waving
lines of fire on either side render the scene
almost as bright as day. At short intervals
arches of colored Are span the street, while
special designs of flaming gas Jet cover
the fronts of business houses and from
convenient point thero are private dis
plays of pyrotechnics. The street Is
packed almost to sulTocatlon with slow
moving humanity, while every sldo street
is blocked with carriages and wagons used
as temporary reviewing stands. In front
t the larger buildings crowds of men,
women and children till temporary stands,
while from every window above projects
a long ledge, well railed and provldod
with chairs for the sightseers. Tho roofs
of tho building are covered with people,
and the telegraph polos bear human fruit.
As the brilliant procession moves along,
the sea of humanity parts buforo It and
closes in again behind tho last float.
Handkerchiefs are waved from open win
dows to the characters on the floats, who
respond to the salute with some charac
teristic gesture; flowers are scattered be
foro the procession, awl tho crowd yells
lUelf hoarse In iU approbation of tho dis-
I -
play. When the pageant has gone by
many hurry to catch a view of It from
some other point, many return to their
homes, but it is midnight before the
streets are cleared, and it is nearly nioru
Ing before quiet is restored.
Meantime tho procession has wound its
way through tho principal streets of tho
city, completing its Journey when it
reaches the southern entrance to tho
Chamber of Commerce building, where
each float discharges its gayly costumed
loud and is trundled oil in darkness to
the "den," from which, but an hour be
fore, it emerged In all Its brilliancy.
The characters, as they are assisted to
alight, are Instructed to enter tho building
and occupy tho first largo room to tho
right of the entrance. This room has
been shut oT from tho outer world and
well curtained. Upstairs In tho great
hall of the Merchants' Exchange prepara
tions aro going forward for tho ball given
by the Prophets every year to their St.
Louis friends and visitors. Tho high gal
leries have been hung with bunting, while
on the walls behind are arranged in
graceful folds the banners of the Proph
ets. Theso bannors are of odd design
in red and yellow strlpo, with a trans
verso stripo of royal purplo bearing the
Prophets' seal. From the galleries depend
baskets of flowers and trailing vines; be
tween them cages of birds whose mer
ry notes minglo with the plashing of the
fountain In the center of the floor. Over this
fountain has been built a lowor covered
with vines and dotted with fragrant blos
soms. A bank of moss and ferns forms
the bower's base. Over the maiu en
trance of the hall rlsos a huge floral arch.
Opposite the entrance Is the rostrum on
which aro seated the sixty musicians hid
den from view by a bank of cut flowers
and blossoming plants. Above their
heads hangs suspended the chariot
of the grand oracle, with threo
horses drawing it through tho air
apparently at full speed. Jleneath
them tho letters "V. P." are outlined in
flame. Around the sides of the big hall
are arranged tiers of seats for the benefit
of those who wish to rest dining the in
termissions between the dances. Every
where there is a profusiou of flowers.
This is the general plan of decoration. It
is varied each season to suit the subject
illustrated in the pageant.
Shortly after 11 o'clock tho grand
oracle ami his attendant followers are
announced. The oracle who, from the
lost float in the pageant, bus showered
blessings on the crowd in tho streets, is a
venerable individual with a flowing white
beard and heavy, white eyebrows and an
unnaturally ruddy complexion. Ho is
clad in a flowing rolsj of sal in covered
with gold embroidery ami heavily studded
with jewels and on his head ho wears a
massive crown. His attendant high
priests aro clad in rich robes of bilk and
satin. Following in his train two and
two are the characters from the tableaux
in tho street pageant, all handsomely cos
tumed and securely masked. The chair
man of the reception committee meets the
grand oracle at the door ami, taking his
arm, leads him about the hall, tho center
ct which has been cleared. Tho long pro
cession follows. I'rcsently it divides and the
two long lines coil in and out, finally meet
ing and joining into one procession again.
A whistlo is sounded. Instantly the lino
breaks and the Prophets mingle with the
crowd, most ot them seeking partners for
the first quadrille, in which none but the
Prophets and their lady partners can par
ticipate. When the quadrille Is o-cr the
Prophets disperse gradually, some of tAieui
remaining on tne tloor until a late nour
The dancing Is kept up by their guest
until 3 o'clock.
Tho Veiled Prophots' organization was
formed In W78 in part Imitation of tho
"Mystick Krewe" of ew Orleans and
similar organizations in other southern
cities. It Is a secret institution, but, as far
as Is known, Its membership includes all
tho wealthiest and most prominent bus)
ne.s men in tho city. These gentlemen
contribute about 40,000 every year to the
nigauizu'tlon, realizing a return in the
pleasuro they and their friends derive
from tho eutertalnmcnt and In the increase
in business and wealth which necessarily
follows tho gathering of so many thousand
neonle at visitors to St. IxraU for the pur
nose of witnessing tho pageant. These
Lrentleinen, it is understood, disguise them
selves In various costumes and take
part In the moving tableaux on the
street, afterward participating In the
ball. The street pageant Is free to all
The ball bi free. too. but it la free only to
those who have recoivod Invitations from
tho Prophets. As invitations are obtain
able only through members of tho organ
ization and as its memlterslilp is a pro
found secret, it is not an easy thing for
those who have not been voluntarily
favored to obtain tickets. This year there
will be fewer tickets for distribution
among the people of St. Louis thnn there
have been before, because the visit of
President Cleveland and his wife will
bring to the city au enormous Influx of
visitors and the strangers mast be carod
for first. The Prophets will prepare a
special reception for the president and his
party, and the hall will be decorated wltn
special designs In their honor,
The subjects chosen for illustration In
past years have very nearly exhausted the
supply. There are twenty-two Boats in
the procession each year, and it Is difficult
to find an Interesting subject which will
furnish twenty-two tableaux. The
"Prophets" illustrated one year the arts
and sciences showing the progress of the
world In the past century. Another year
the "Arabian Nights" fables wore
Illustrated. One year scenes from
tho plays of the Immortal
Shakespeare were reproduced. Last
season scenes from American history were
presented. This year tho subject an
nounced Is Bible history, and the scenes
presented will be chosen from snhjects in
the Old Testament. They will include
the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the
Garden of Eden, the killing of Abel by
his brother Cain, Abraham's offer of his
son Isaac on the altar, Samson's betrayal
by Delilah, the visit of the Queen of
Sheba to Solomon, scenes in the life of
Joseph, Moses on Mount Sinai and many
other scenes In all twenty-one tableaux
which, with the float of the grand oracle,
will make the pageant consist of twenty
two flouts.
The Count of I'arl and Hie Remark
able Manifesto.
Tho Count of Paris, who la tho recog
nized head of tho royul house of France
and tho successor of the Count of Chum
bord, is Rgaln brought into prominence by
tho remarkable manifesto he has recently
published, In which be appeals to the Mon
archists and urges them to establish a
monarchy. Tho Count of Paris will be
remembered on this Hide of the Atlantic
by tho action he took in tho late wnr.
When he was 33 years old, in 18C1,
ho came over to
America with his
brother and the
Prince do Join
vllle. Tho party
was very cordially
greeted at Wash
ington, and tho
count and his
brother entered
tho Federal ser
vice under Gen.
McClcllnn, with
tho rank of cap
tains of volun
teers, stipulating
that they should
receive no pay and that they could resign
whenever they pleased, llio count re
turned to Europo in 1HC2, having received
the warmest pralso for the part he took in
the war. In 104 be married his cousin,
a daughter of the Duko do Montpensler.
In 1671 tho count was admitted as a
member of tho National assembly at Ver
sailles, under M. Thiers, president of the
French republic. In lo'J tho assembly
voted the restitution of the property of
his family, the family of Orleans, and on
Aug. 5 tho count had his celebrated inter
view with tho Count of Chambord, whom
he acknowledged as tho head of tho royal
house of Franco.
Tho count is tho author of several other
remarkable papers. In 1(371) ho published
an article which was translated under tho
heading of "Tho Trades Unions of Eng
land," and which attracted considerable
attention at tho time. He is also tho
author of "A History of tho Civil War in
Where the Articles of Confederation
Were First Adopted.
They aro holding a centennial In York,
Ta., this year. Tho town was settled in
1720 by the Germans, and there the conti
nental congross adjourned from Philadel
phia in September, 1787, to Juno, 1788.
It wns Incorporated in 1787. Hut it is
chiefly noted as tho town where tho
articles of confederation were signed,
ou the 15th of November, 1777. Dur
ing tho first session of the continental
congress hero occurred tho resignation
of John Hancock, and tho death of
Philip Livingstone, ono of tho immortal
signers of the Declaration of Independence.
James Smith, another of tho signers,
was ono of York's most distinguished cit
izens, and Thomas Hardy, tho first mem
ber of congress from York county, lived
heroin lino stylo. Tho first locomotivo
ever built in America was built in York
by phincas Davis, a resilient, and tho en
gine was first used upon tho Haltimoro
and Susquehanna railroad. Tho quaint
aspect of tho old town, with its comfort
able low houses of stone and brick, has
changed, and the advent of tho railroads
has brought to it tho roar of modern civil
ization. Tho cut shows the old court house In
which the continental congress held IU
seaslout in York.

Comparison DM ween the Two Taebta
What Hootch Yachtsman Thinks About
the Matter The ThUtle Mot UolU After
American Models.
There never has been such a heated dis
cussion over the comparative merits of
two yachts as the debates now going ou
In New York and other yachting ceuters
over tho merits of the ThUtle and the
Volunteer. The performance of tho
Thistle in tho trial race which took place
recently between tho Volunteer and the
Mayflower, and w hich effectually decided
the superiority of the Volunteer, has
called forth opinions of evory shade.
Thero can bo no question that Volunteer
stock has gone np considerably since the
trial race, but the fact that on that occa
sion the J lost on boat bent tho Thistle
should not furnish any reasonable grounds
for supposing that the Volunteer is the
better boat, but at the same time the fact
thst the Volunteer did beat the Thistle,
no matter what the circumstances were,
seems to hnvo greatly stimulated confi
dence in the former lsat. To sum up tho
whole mutter, tho facts seem to be as fol
lows: .
On tho day of the trial races the Volun
teer beat the Thistle one minute and fifty
nine seconds in a nine mile race. On tiiat
day the Volunteer was in racing trim and
carried tho same sail measurement that
cocnsE or volcsteek in trial races.
sho will carry on tho day of tho great race,
with the exception of her new mainsail,
which is a trifle lighter and larger thnn
her old one. It Is safe to predict that she
will not greatly exceed her performance of
hat day when she Bails against tho Hus
tle. Tho friends of tho Thistle declare, in
excusing her work, that she was not
in racing trim. Her bottom was not
clean, she towed a dingy astern and she
carried two more boats in her davits. In
addition to this, the Thistle carried a
smaller jib than she usually does in such
weather, and a man who was on uoarci ol
her ut the tlmo asserts thut she was hin
dered very much by the boats that hung
in her davits.
A gentleman, who is yachting editor of
a prominent Scotch journal, writes to The
New York World a lengthy letter in which
ho says thnt in his twenty years' yachting
experience ho has never seen any vessel
burst so much broken water as the Volun
teer did on tho day of the trial race. He
even goes so far as to say that tho Anchor
lino steamship in which he crossed tho
Atlantic did not mako such a row even
in a gale of wind. This seems to be
putting tho case rather strongly In view
of the fact that the clean wake of the
Volunteer has been expatiated on ever
since she has been launched. He declares
furthermore that tho Thistle is no
American invention, but is
outcome of tho latest revision
tho Iirltish yacht racing rule
measurement. Mr. Watson, the
signer, has, he says, designed a new type
of Iirltish yacht, and by fortunate guess
work has hit off a fast boat. Tho interest
inu fact remains, however, that the Thlstk
closely resembles American models.
Cuts published in this article show the
course of the Volunteer in the trial race
and the New York Yacht club course
over which the two yachts will sail on
the 27th. Tho first rnco will bo sailed
over the inside course, starting from Owl's
lead. Tho secoud race Sept. 2D will
bo sailed either from Buoy 0, the
Scotland lightship, or the Sandy Hook
lightship, according to tho wind on the
day of the race. Tho third race, if it is
necessary, will bo sailed over a triangular
course outside of Sandy Hook.

of Cseniiium, which was during all this

V. 0-3. The diieato PaUy is a disease
w lieli uotuiista of I'm of power over the mus
cles, and may be eitliHr complete, loavlng the
body helplena, or partial, leaving the muscles
active but uncontrollable. There are some
reasons for Imlieving tbU raie was of the
latW kind, and probably what U now known
as St. Vitua' daiH-e. If so, then the "griev
ously toraiwntod'' will be appreciated by
wry one that bat seen a caso of this disease.
Chrut V reply (v. 7) w& a quick answer to
the centurion jmtiLioii for help, and a full
justification of tho faith that lrd him to nook
Christ' aid. V. 8 kIiowk the conception the
ceuturion had of Christ's xwor over die&e.
This case of the centurion was among the
very earliiwt of Christ' manifestation, of his
power to do signs at a distance. The centu
rion's faith wa liown in Moving that the Sa
viour's coming was not need!.
Vs. 10, 11. Tun CreutileH Jio doubt this
centurion was a Gmitile, and this is the flrt
manifestation of tla Gentile faith that was to
b so largely called forth after the day of
IVntecoit. V. 11 has loeii abundantly ful
filled as a prophecy in tbe uUtory of the
The expression Shall sit down with Abra
ham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom
of heaven" is the Onmital mtliod of express
ing a thorough hwiiie wleom. The whole
transaction lieomes a tyiw of the future
spread of his g el among tho Ountiles, and
thU centurion is the first fruit of that ingath
ering which has leen accomplished in the
Gentile world.
Vs. 12, 13. Rejection The alternative of
rejection is set forth in v. 1A Tbe Oetitiles
of tbe east and west are wet in contrast with
tbo children of tbe kingdom, and the race is
represented by one or the other of these. So
also Is each individual porson. Those who
will not accept Christ are to bu cast out into
the outer darkness. Oriental roasts were at
night, with the house brilliantly lighted. Tbe
outer darkness is the exclusion from that
light and planty and comfort which reign
The Saviour now put the centurion's faith
and the faith of the people to another test.
He said, "Oo thy way; and as thou hast be
lieved, so be it unto thee.' The conduct of
each one was now to show how far be be
lieved in tbe Savour's word. If the cen
turion's faith was as strung as he said, he
would go home confident of tbe result.
Note 1. Military otllnei nre generally sup
posed to bo a beurtiess class. Here is one
who hod a tender regard for those under him.
If employers and people ot influence would
have similar care for those within their
power, the relations of affection would boas
clixse ns they are here.
2. Many pupils to whom this lesson will le
taught, who have had Christian trainme
from their youth, will illustrate v. 12 to their
'ternid disgrace and pain. And many chil
dren of heathen and vicious parents, to whom
this lesson will 1m cuught in our mission
schools in this and other lands, will illustrate
v. 11 to their everlasting honor and joy.
V. 8. I am not worthy thut thou shouldest
come under my roof People of authority
and of wealth in these days approach the
church, if they approach it at all, as if their
presence was a favor. They seem to have a
lurking idea that they ore to be praised by a
minister for condescending to attend when he
preaches. Whether they actually go so far
in thought as to suppose that they are con
ferring a favor upon the Almighty by using
a port of the Sabbath in riding to church,
and fanning themselves with an indifferent
attention upon all the services, may be a
question they would not like to answer to
themselves. It Incomes a kind of constitu
tional habit with them to patronize every
thing. They Imve a patronizing air toward
all who are sociully on a different level from
themselves, ami they carry this same air into
religion and church work. The centurion,
though a man of position and a representa
tive of Roman authority, not ouly possessed
more sense but more humility. He recog
nized the great favor he was seeking; be also
had some proper appreciation of the dignity
and tho power of the porson from whom he
asked so great a favor. lie did not belittle
himself, but rather showed true greatness in
his humility. There is a useful lesson here
for all.
V. 13. As thou hast believed, so be it done
unto thee If the prayers of ordinary Chris
tians were answered in this way now, about
how many do you think would receive what
they ask for? About how large a proportion
of those w ho profess regularly and daily to
ask blessings of tbe Lord really and truly
have faith to believe that they will receive
exactly what they ask for? If the answer in
every case were to be, "According to thy
faith" so be it done unto thee, how much
would they really get? Now, the fact is thst
tbe answer which Jesus made on earth to the
centurion is but an indication of the answer
which be usually makes to all who seek him.
The Christian gets not what ho asks for, but
according to the faith with which he asks.
The place Capernaum, at the northwest
ern end of the sea of Galilee, where Jesus
often went. His second miraclo was per
formed on tho son of a nobleman who lived
In Capernaum. It was a military post and
the home of Simon Peter, where Jesus cured
Peter's wife. It was the home or headquar
ters to which Jesus often returned.
Tbe persons Tbe centurion or captain of
one hundred men, a Roman military ofllcer;
his servant, who was ill; and Jesus Christ,
the great Physician.
Tho story Tho fame of Jesus hail become
so great that many people flocked to hear
him and to be healed of various diseases
whenever he entered a city. Soon after
coming to Capernaum this time, the Roman
ofllcer came to him to beg that he would heal
his servant, who was very ill. Servants were
often a part of tbe family in those days, and
much la-loved when found faithful. They
remained a lifetime with the same family,
so thut their interests were identical. This
officer came himself to see Jesus, instead of
sending a messenger, which shows how treat
bis iersonul interest wus in him.
Although this otl'uvr held a position of rank
and authority, he was very humble when
speaking to Jesus. Ho must have known that
Jesus was his Lord and no common physician.
He meant, As I give orders to my men to do
one thing and another and they obey me, so I
know a word from you can in the same way
command disaso. He had probably heard
how tho nobleman's son woscured when Jesus
was in Cuiio, and of other wonderful cures.
He saiJ, "Speak the word only, and my
servant shall be healed." Jesus was surprised
at bo strenff falcb, and tJ, "I have not
fouud to great faith, no, not in Israel." Noni
of tbe people of u w bad shown such conn
dence and belief In him as this Roman ofllcei
Jesus Christ h always pleased with real
trust and faith In him. Every one likes to M
trusted, especially when doing good to others.
Tbe good news V. 11 contains a precluui
promise for the people of all lands, that many
shall come from the east and west and ihU
sit down with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob
in the kingdom of heaven; I sit alas, the next
verse tells us that the children of tbe king
dom shall be cast out It is not enough to
belong to a pious family or even to belong U
tbe church: not enough to attend Sunday
school and religious services. There must be
true faith in Christ to secure a place in
heaven, and this any one may posses, no
matter in what land or what nation or what
church. "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,
ami thou shalt he saved" (Act xvi, 311. This
