A circular from Mt. Carroll iu this

patriotic absence lrom home
Among the passengers landed in
Cairo by the James W. Can", on her last
trip down, waaan old gentleman named
Mc.Mahon. who hails lrom Stub- uviile,
Ohio, Upon arriving in our city, Mr.
McMahon found himself short ot the
necessary amount of nloney to carry
him to his journey's end, a small town In
Missouri where hu has n daughter living,
and started out yesterday morning in
searcn ol work, that he might continue
on his route. Alter looking a")out lor
several hou-s, he became discouraged
and concluded to ask for assistance. Ac
cordingly tho first man he
nut lie accosted and told his
story. The putty who Mr. Mc-
Mahon described ns being ot medium
size with fair complexion and hair, and
attired in a dark suit of clothes, sad he
would give him a quarter toward helping
him out ol his trouble, if ho could chanjre
a two dollar note. The old gentleman
diew from his Docket severul silver
pieces, and handed them to his supposed
Iriend, and received the two dollar note
and withdrew. Yesterday afternoon he
had, ho thought, enough money to carry
him to his friends in Missouri, and np
p'ied at the office of tho Iron Mountain
railroad for passage, when upon handine
out the bill given him, he was informed
that it was nothing more than an adver
tisement of a New Y'ork firm. This is
an old dodge in tho larger cities, often
practiced upon verdant youths and tin-
suspectinqr old people, but this is the
first time wc have heard of its perpetra
tion in Cairo.

On Sunday evening tho Rev. Mr. Glll
ham ot the M. E. Church gavo a short
but elegant sermon on the "Crucifixion
ot Christ," from the following text, part
of the thirty-third vesre of tho twenty
third chapter of Luke: "And when they
were come to tho place called Calvary,
there they crucilied him."
The death of Christ was the essential
part of his earthly mission. First we
tlnd the Importance all or the evangelists
place upon this event. Tho gospels are
not duplicates, but wero written by dif
ferent persons and at different times and
places, each give parables and events
that are not recorded by tho others.
Not all of Jesun' words and. deeds hav
been recorded. Matthew gives ono JfTin
ured and twenty-five verses in pfreoce
to the crticilllxiou ; Luko oienitndred j
John, writing long t?xr; gives details
more than the others. Writers must have
regarded the death ot Christ as essential
to our salvation, if they were mistaken,
so were ail ; wo must believe In till or
none. The cross is tho only way,
through the blood of the Lamb, whereby
wc may be saved, i'aul refers to this
Revelation speaks of the Innumerable
multitude before the throne, with robes
washed in tho blood of the Lamb. The
crimson stream runs through the whole
of tho new testament. Jesus regarded
his death as part of his mission. When
Ho walked with Moses nnd Elias, He
could not liavo talked of empires and
power, but olliis approaching death and
man's redemption, from that time Jesus
conversed with His disciples of His eru
flxioii. Did He understand Himself? Ji
not, how can we believe in Him as a
guide and a teacher r Jesus gave ua by
His death, what He could not by His
life, it Bhi Is weakness or ignorance
merely, there is no need of the
cross, uiau is guilty, The moralist says :
How can a loving Cod punish him lor
doing the best he can? Of what use then
Is the cross? Did not Christ say: "It is
liuished !" "I go ; do tho best you can.
You are still a sinner. Y'our olIv hone,
is in the cross. Christ Is my sacrifice."
Iu my hand no price 1 bring. Simply to
the cross 1 cling. You all stand betore
the cross, accept It as your salvation.
May God help us to receive this dying
Savior as our Savior. AI.
