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 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.

Mr. Ulllhnm'a I.aiil mutiny LveuluK'n Nerinoo. 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.
