An Evil Intent Thwarted, and a Noble Deed Inspired. f Anywhere else she would havo been called Maud, Imt Sinokcton people wore too busy milking money to pny proper atten tion to ilipthon;4H, bo to them sho was simply Mod. tsinoketon wns not so large a place as one might Imagine from the mere number of its factories. It crawled along iu a blacky unwholesome manner, upon the banks of one of tho loveliest rivers in the world, to a very unfair length, but was in parts scarcely more than half a mile wide, being shut in on the east by beautiful rollini; green hills, over which it had made a grimy and ineffectual effort to climb. AmoiiK these hills flowed swift, clear mountain streams, doubling and winding many times on their way to the (-rent river, to which, when the snow melted in spring upon the hilltops, thoy often briuiidit, a larger tribute than was quite convenient. ll was indeed a beautiful country Champ 1 Teat on said in his laiiuwl wnv, when ho visited the place, that, the part ot Kmnke ion which the Lord made was a per fect sueceHs, adding that he lind never visited a town w hem the people so bowed nown to monev and possessed so little ol it thems.dves, for there were no millionaires in I 'lnokelon. Mod's surname ""ns Panes, the vowel of which was as undulv prolonged bv tho SSninl-etoiPnn as her dipt hong was unjustly shortened. There whs nothing visibly heroic about Mod. Sho was tho eldest duuehtor of a Snioket-ui operative, teach- in i iu Room No. 6. Ward eleven, of the Hini'kelon I ul lie Schools, Sho was small and slcnd'T, awkw-ard in person and movo ments, with a protruding forehead, life-loss-lookinp; sandy hair, and small, dull. unexpressivo oyes. She was also an en thusiast in her profession, and had dim lonuints after "culture" and cravings for "sweetness and light." Above all sho cherished a romanco and woi shiped a hero Stephen Dare was not at all a bad fellow, especially in in own opiuiczii. no whs handsome yoiiii" giant, with a frank merry face, usually obscured by a cloud of soot ; for Stephen, though only twenty-five, was a boss" at llrown's mill, the largest nail-mill in SmoUeton. lie was well otr. too wealthy for a place whoso richest mi n only counted by tens ol thousands; so it is not wonderlul. perhaps, that ho was much netted una spoiled bv tne MnoKeton lassos, tvcn though his ".-ehooliug"-hnd scarcely passed I eyond an eh mvntary knowledge of "tho three Its." Stephen and Mod had toddled about in each other's company when both of them woro dre8"B; thoy had been deskmntes during the boy's briof experience of school life, aMJ had coulided their joys and sor rows each to the other, though Mod was rather the better listouer. The Kloventh ward sehool-houso was on Stephen's direct way homo from work, and as Mod always romamed there until six o'clock to study Stenhou had got into the habit of calling for her. ami thence one September after noon thoy were walking home together when they first saw Mvra Iracy. Stephen's hands were iu his pocket -l, his shoulders well squared under the shabby old coat, and his full breadth of ch' st dis played iu its garniture of blue-checked shirt; he was whistling under his breath and bis chin, dark witn soot aud a three days' growth of beard, was carried proudly in the air. Mod's eyes were red from a fit of weeping into which she had been be trayed at the close of one of those days which come to every teacher, when the very spirit of evil seems to get into every thing and everybody. Hhe wore a faded pink gingham and carried a dilapidated lunch-basket in her gloveless hand. In this guise thoy turned a corner and came suddenly upon a inuy in deep mourning who was gazing around ner in perplexity tShe was tall, slender and exnuisitely graceful, with a wild-rose complexion and large, pathetic gray eyes, from which, as thoy approached, she sent a long glance .straight into Mteplien'B Heart. "Kxcuae me," sho Baid, in low, musical tones, '-but I wonder if you can direct me to Mr. 1 racy s "L. S. Tracy, of Brown's Mill?" asked Mod, as Stephen, wit bout even the presence ot iiuiiu to remove bis Hat, could only ram his hands further into his pockets and stare in s donee. The faintest possible smile wavered arouud Myra Tracy'd bvuutiiul mouth as she bowed 111 silence. "O. then, L. K. Tracy lives on tho next street to this. Your nearest way will be to cross tho railroad and go up the hill through thatali.iy by I he carpenter's shop it will bring you iul right opposite his bouse." "Thank you so much," and with another smile and bow JVu.-.s 1 racy moved grace fully away, somewhat amused ut the novelties which hail come into her life in the shtipe of uiltys by -carpenters' shot and haudsoino y.niug workmen stricken dirndl bv her cloo ins. "Hy jinks! am't t,he a daisy I" exclaimed Stephen, recovering lin bi.-ath and bis mokelott vurnitcuiui w lieu tuo vislou was cone. "You never took oft your hut, Steve, said Mod, glancing v,iiu a strange new pain in ber heart ut the man's flunhud face uuil sparkling eyes. "O, confound the hat! I forgot ft. say, Mod, she must, be 'iracy's niece. You know his broUier died in 1'hiludclpuia last mouth, and 1 maid bis dnugtiter was iNm here to teuch her uncle's children. This iiiost be ike very girl," kliiii ss I ou!:ht, to e;ill. if she is a teacher. said Mod, a l.itlu bitterly. Stephen replied promptly : "Don't see why yiu shouldn't. She awfully swell; bin, 1 bet you've got as much money, evorv time. I.uol; lier Modi don't tell niiLoly, but I wouldn mind marly in,; that girl !"

P-tephnn wns even mors in i-armst than Mod supposed. It, was not a difficult, matter to obtain an introduction to Miss Tracy, and nln-n he ask.'d permission to rail the girl hud not, she said afterwards, snilicient, presence mind to refuse. Myra, iml"ed, was Iirofoundly amused at herself, and scarce ess so at Stephen. The handsome, illiter young giant wns a new type to the high-bred, "cultured" rhilndoiphian : and though she considered flirting a very unlndylike proceeding her esthetic interest wns sufficiently visible to nITord Stephen all the encouragnnient he need-'d. Hut for its elements of possible tragedy, the situation would have been rath-r a roniienl one to a looker-on who could have read thp hearts of those interested. Ste phen Dare was thoroughly iiecus'. lined to consider himself a great catch, and it never entered his calculations to be regarded ns an inferior bv any one who possessed less money than himself. lie was simply and frankly unable to estimat e worth by any other standard, ilirth, educnt ion, rellne lnent, he considered neei lent ill qualit ies, like the shape of one's nose: the first, always valueless, the second and third casionnlly useful as a means of support, and not bad for women. It was no doubt the peculiar delicacy of M vra's beauty and the dainty polish of her manners that made ner so attractive to mm, end perhaps tt wns scarcely his fault that even on these points he was half incapable of appreciat ing ner. roicno-ion manners were ny no menus elaborately finished; were, in fact, but roughly blocked out. So it is small wonder that when Myra lifted her great, pathetic eyes to his a ml inn rinure,l "The nlc you so much" in return for his icifts of Irult and candv, he shoul I fancy that, her manner meant fra, far more than the loud- voiced gratitude ot the belles of Smoketon. (In the other hand, while Mvra readily understood that, Stephen admired her, it would have been impossible for hr o eali.e that he looke-1 uieni her in full se- urit v as his whenever he chose to claim her. 1 he gulf between tiietn wns, to her eves, so impassably abvssmal. It, was l:ue le had never given him a gr,iin--or at ast not more than a grain of what her own conscience or a man in her mi n circle would have cniled encouni :em -lit. Sue had refused his invitations to drives, tlieatres, nt, without hesitation or excep- ion, but on the plea of herdeeii mournin nml with eyes of such tender sadness that Stephen quile believed it to be "only those confounded fashions" that stood in the way. And when ho came to the house it was quite impossible to reiuse to see hnn. He was a good-lienrted, honest sort ot let- low, Mvra thought, though rat her mono! - onotis if one had him seven times a week, for he had absolutely no general informa tion, nnd his range of thought was narrow in tne extreme. That terrible Miss llaii"s, who called one afternoon in an apple-green silk nnd velvet which would have been hor rible cv u had she not been so conscious of it, and who was so evidently in love with Steve," as she called him, was twioo a-i intelligent. A very good wife for him, too, ho would only be brought t-i believe it. It wns so much belter for people to nmrry in their own class. The truth was, Myra as well as Stephen, judged her fellows by a standard ol her own establi-liiii-, and the one who most truly nu-asured ihings by the eternal veri ties was poor, llolilelv, nee.lei-to 1 Mod. Consequently w hell SLeoheil, at last, asked M) ca to bo his w ife and w as rejected w ilh a hair-,ht y surorise which she could t quite conceal, it, was Mud who was ba t, astonished. Stephen, believed he understood the whole matter perfectly, for it was, in fact, the presence of Chaino l'reslon in Snioki-l-m which had hurried him on to a declaration. A long, lazy, tow-h- aded fool," was his terse descripl iuu of the all-eoiuiuering Champ, whose soft voice, li;iinl-;o:ne face, languid eliiince of manner, not to socak rit his attractions in tho way of stocks, bonds and landed properly, had for several seasons made him the lion of Kiistern society. Jle had been abroad at tho time of Mr. Tracy's death. Immediately upon his return he followed Myra lo Sinok- ton, where, as he coolly infor oed her ir, was his intention to bivouac with the abocgines until she was rendv to be married and re turn with him to civilization. Mvra readily allowed herself to bo per suaded. Su.oketoii was more distasteful to her thnu ever sinco Stephen had taken his dismissal in such vehemently bad pari. lie seemed actually to think 1 was in love with him, and dociined to be convinced that 1 was not," sho confided to Champ. Ihov all do, mv dear," no replied, languidly. "If a fellow is decently civil to one of the daughters of tho land she thinks direct ly he is wildly enamored of hor. Don't be afraid of this aspiring but dingy suitor; high tragedy iu love has gone quite out of style, 1 assure you." t in not airaul, ' she answered; "out you should have heard how he wont on. It was thoroughly shocking and disgust ing." Horribly bad form," assented Uhamp, meditatively caressing his long, yellow mustache. Stephen fully believed himsulf to have been outrageously trilled with. "I don't blame her." he said to the long-suffering Mod, "for he's gotten times tho money I have; but it s pretty rough on a follow, all the same, to be sacked like this; and I'll got eveu with him yet!" "mat's tne trouble," sain aiou, perreciiy unconscious that she was enunciating u profound truth. "That's the trouble, Stephen, about money. You aro certaiu to meet some ono who is worth more than you are. For my part 1 wish there was no such thing, people care so much about it." Stephen carried matters with a very high hand. lie laughed more, drank more, and talked louder and faster than ever in his life; but once, w hen he and Mod were passed by the stylish equipage iu which Champ aud Myra were driving, poor Mod felt her heart sink within her at the dark glance which Stephen sent after the pair, muttering under his breath: "Oo It while you're young, old fellow; but you ain't married vet." Mod nan ample opportunity to unserve him closely, tor He set up a rival team to Champ's aud took her out behind It every day, usually managing to cross the track of the other couple once at least, during the drive, lie also purchased a revolver, aud practiced daily until his incredible per formance upon a silver half-dime made Door Mod's blood run cold. Ought not Champ i'reston to be warned? But how and of wuat.' bho could ouly wait aud watcn. The wedding day arrived a warm Feb ruarv inorniug pouring with tain. In deed, it had rained for twodays over all the surrounding country. Tho river was unusually high, and the Smoketon Datfii 2Vii)t;t- bail already w arned its readers to expect a llood. Hut Smokclnninns wore thoroughly accustomed to Hoods. Some families on the low ground near th i river were washed out. regularly every spriug, aud ucct-ptod tho inisf'ortuiie calmly as a necessary part of tho inevitable sprlir cleuuiug, so tho warning blast was less effective than perhaps tho foresight of the Truuipt t deserved. " Happy is the bride Cac sun shines on," quoted Stephen grimly, as he stood at his chamber window carefully examining his revolver; " and blessed is lhr corpse ,'hat the rain falls upon," he added a moment later. Mod's premises adjoined his, and she saw it all. The marriage ceremony was to tako place at nine o'clock, and the happy pair were to go directly to tho railway station. " Will he bo at the church 1" questioned Mod of herself, "or at, the railway;"' and could not answer. " What shall I do)'" she cried miserably ; "O, my Uod! What shall I dor" Ho wsb not among tiho spectators whom even the pourine rain could not keep away from the church door, and, once uatisiled uf tliis. Mod turned her steps toward the station. Tiiero ho was, sure enough, deep in conversation with a ruilway otticiitl. There was a strange glitter iu his eyes, cud his dark, handsome face was deadly pale, from head to heel he was buttoned carefully into a shining rubber coat, and M ol felt sure t hat in his hosoin lay n harm less looking lift lu toy, as bright as u jewel, that needed to b-3 kept dry. Incased ulso in rubber, und w earing a heavy green veil, it was easy for the girl to have passed him unrecognized and establish herself iu the door of the ladies' waiting room, towards w hich his back was turned us he leaned a shoulder against tho wall, aud whence she could havo reached out her hand and laid it on his shoulder. "(toiii' nwuv!" ssked ilie ndicial, with that fulling inflection whbh denotes a question iu Smokt ton. "Not, exact ly," replied Stephen, with a grim laugh, "but I know a fellow that is; pretty lar, too. 1 came I'J see him oil." "Oh!" said the otlii iul. "Well, he won't get pretty far to-duy. Tracks Hooded iu every direction; river's oil a regular high. Ain't a train came iu this ui'ji uni'; aud ttoue ain't a coinin'." t,i w Tiisfnnres were short in Smoketon, anil Mod w as buck at. th clinreli with lierin f orient ion be for the ceiemonv was over and set fhn news atlont so successfully that it soon reached the bridal party. There was a hnsty, whispered con sultation; then the hriiM and groom stepped into a rnrringe and returned to Mr. I i acy's, while the best man sprung In- another in order to inquire into the accuracy of the tidings. Stephen saw the cnrrinTO drive up, nnd. draw ing himself to his full height, plun -ed his hand into hi breast. Hut only one person stepped from the vehicle, and that not, the ono for whom he walled. Ashe looked on with fiercely, gleaming, be wildered eyes a hnnd wai laid noon his nrin, and Mod lookei'i up into his luce; Mod, iii her drnggled waterproof, villi her green veil pushed up from a lace Iraus lormed for the moment hit i beauty by the light of I he soul wit hin. "Stephen," she said, holding his eves ith hers, "they will not b-av to-day. The rivei is rising; all Sou h Sniokelon is under water, nnd the people .ire drowning. Corno with ioe end save tlicm. Come, Stephen," she added, solemnly, ns he hesi tated, gazing in surpriso at her trms flgured count eiiauce, "prove yourself a man irnrili loving. Let tint lu your re venge." "I'.lained if I don't!'' said Stephen Dare. He walked forward n step, drew his baud from his breast, and with a whirl of his wrist sent, something bri -lit, gleaming and sparkling into the fa-it approaching waier. Then, taking Mo 1 by the elbow, ho hurried her away to her own home, wheiohepnt her within the door, saying brietlv: "Now you're sate, Mod; stay there," and hastened on. Stephen Hare was the best oarsuinn in Sinoketou, but he found himself surpassed thai, day, not only in skill, but, in cool, l" ad v (hiring; for f 'hnnm l'reston had been lie era -k oar of his college and had pulled stroke in manv a boat-race, and now, witu his bride's kisses warm on his lips, he felt si rou wit h t he st reugt h of t en. "1 didn't think he hnd it in him, the blame i-al iot," said Stephen, Willi un wilbng ndniiralio.i. The languid, blue eves were -riuietly, keenly alert ; the tall slender form proved to have muscles of iron nn b-r I he sin not h, whit skin St ephen had so dcsiis"d. And t he strongest, inns ch's. the readiest, courage, hail their work cut out, for them tint day. Apart at times, nt other times together, the rivals toiled, bringing many a l it load of hnlf-di-iiw ued wretches to safety nnd such comfort as was obtainable, w hile the rain still fell nnd tho water rose steadily higher. As the darkness increased it grew nioro dillicnlt to avoid tho logs, beams and v recks of nil deseript ions which (he terrible river swept downward with resistless lorce. One of these crashed at last Into Chainp I'reston's brut and crushed iu ii s side as though it had been an egg shell, lu half a moment it had tilled nnd sunk, and the rowers were struggling in the black, raging current. Stephen's bont was close nt, hand, nnd rushed at, once to the resou". One, two woro picked up alive; the thir l, with a small, fatal bruise upon his temple; for the fourth they searched some moments wituouti suceess.

There's no clmrinin ' young widow iu this party, for he's alive and here!" Mvra l'reston saw the white, unconscious face of a form which four men were bring ing carefully in, and sprang towards it with a low cry. "I saw him when the rest had given him up," said poor Stephen, gazing wistfully after her, as she followo l those who bore away her husband to a long but sweet recovery. "I picked him out of the tree mvself, and broke the news to her as care ful as a lamb, nnd she never even said 'beans' !" "Hid you save him, Stove? O, Steve, did vim. really?" Stephen turned aud looked for a moment into Mod's face, then, opening his nrms, drew her to his breast, where, dripping wet as ho was, sho iaid her cheek in rapt uroiis content. "I won't be left by every girl in town," said Stephen. "I'll marry you, Mod. You kept me from making n blame fool of my- self this morning, and I'll inako you a good husband. Mod's only answer was a happy smile, and Stephen, bending his handsome head, repaid with a lass the lips that hnd saved his soul. Cltk't'jo Tribune. It fc VACCINATION. The German Medical Profession in Favor of Several Pustules. 1 ho question whetlMT one or several pustulos should 1)0 made in va "c'tifitinp; is one that is hardly raised at all iu this country. Even in tho olaboia'o and careful article unon the "Techn'ca of Vaccination," by Dr. Foster, in "Pep peV's System of Med'cino," no reference is made to th matter. Yet it is well known that the profession in Germany havo very settled conviet'ons that several pustules should be made. The German Commission which met years aro at Heilin to discuss and formulate conclusions upon the subject of vaccina tion took up. amonpr other things, this point: "lu what relation," it was asked, "docs tin number of vaccinia pustules stand to tho protective influence of the vaccination?" Accoi-dinp; to Dr. Koch, out ot 70.') small pox patients in tho StocUwell Hospital there died, of those bavin; no senrs, 17 percent.; of those having' poor sears, '.15 per cent.; of those having one ejood scar. 6.3 per cent.: bavin",- two o-ood sears. 4.1 percent.; having three good sears, 2.3 per cent.; hiiviue; four or more sears, 1.1 per cent From this it would bu inferred that a person havine; four sears on his arm is almost certain, even if he gets small pov. to go through It safely. Koch himself takes the position positively that the pro tective power of vaccination is iu direct relatam to tho number ot vaeeiiif pits! ulcs. 1'i'of. (irosshelm cited eases to show that in revaceination the virus "takes' less often on those who have severa scars. Similarly. Siegel found that among ch ldivn presented for revaeei nation, the successes were the rule if tin child had but one sear, and the e cepl'on if it had four to tight.

The Great Difference Between Starting Center and from the Circumference. forem-e. , j , , i I , F.vcry man who thinks at all must feel at times unutterably perp'exod in the presence of the problems that sur round human life. Its innumerable contradictions and tragical inequalities, its revelations as well as ils hidings of Divine purposes, ils present capacities and its future possib lilies, inv.te at- temps to justify the ways of God lo nioti by finding solutions on which mind I and heart may rest. These problems ' are as obi as tne il.iwu oi itioiigiil. : ' Shall not the Judge of all the earth ' do right?" It is inevitable, and desira- j ble, thai men should tli;nl; and invesli- ,, rate iu respect to these nnd a thousand i other shadowy lo ms that 1 " it, their ', strange and ip-ios'iionihg faces out of llie unknown lor iw to scrutinize, j Science born of doubt; a doubt that is not .--at:s ,eil lo remain ncim.ou-, tan seeks lo crystali.'e itself into know ied-re. In nl. these iiiiesiion'ngs and doubts it makes a great iliilci cuce in the out come what the starling-point is. it is dilliculi to I ml the center when in'opini: from the circumference; it is impossible to miss the circumference when starting from the center. Men begin with the world to explain God, instead of begin ning with (iotl to explain the world. They are like the old astronomers who tr.ed to account lor the movements of the planets by reckoning from the earth as a center; there caino lo them only gleams of order in a universe of inex Ir. cable conftis on. It was only w hen tiiis earth, that seemed so great be cause so near, was r-.'iegated to its com parative insiguilieanee, anil men began to reckon with the sun as a center, that everything fell iuto absolute and uni versal harmony. So the moral and spiritual universe may be approached from geocentric, or heliocentric starting-points, and the re sult will be respectively confusion and unrest, or harmony and rest: rest, even if insoluble problems still remain; rest, because the finite, soul rests on the Infinite Center in Whom is the solu tion cf every mystery This was the position of the ancient prophet when lie excla.med: "Righteous art Thou, () Lord, when 1 plead with Thee: yet let me reason the ease with Thee of Thy judg ments." In all his reasonings and questionings he held fast lo the primary truth, lie started from that. What ever appearances might be, contradic tory or confounding, he was not lost, he did not drift on a se i of doubt, the snort of every wind and tide. His soul was anchored to the Internal Kock. No hideous appearances of injustice, of Divine ind.lleiviico lo oppression, cru elty and wtoit r, could drag him away. His tie.stions m ght remain unan swered, but still he could fail back on the primary ground of conlidence: Kiohtcous art Thou, () Lord." I'roblems iu philosophy, in physical science, iu Uibliual criticism, in theol ogy, iu eschatology, aro pressing harder than ever for solution. The rad ical defect of much that calls it -elf sci ence, philosophy, theology, or crit.cism, is that it is geocentric). It starts with matter, with force, with mind, with the Christian consciousness, w.th any postulate, in fact, rather than with God. Consequently it loses itself in inextri cable contradictions, lie. on the con trary, who makes the God of revelation his primary postulate may not be able to refute all errors, to resolve till con tradictions, to harmoni.e all discords, but he will be kept irom hopeless wan derings, for ho holds a thread that will lead him back from all dark question ings into serene sunlight and joy. -. i.

The place is pros perous and ambitious, but its l'reby terian church is old-fashioned and shabby. They all wanted a new one, but they did not see how they could raise the motley. Alter talking the matter over for months a ineeling was called; a plan and estimates were, pre sented, and then the mam question came up, How shall we secure the 10, (itiii? Of course, a subscript on paper must be circulated. l!ut in addition lo lllis it was suggested that there .111011111 be a lair, several concerts and festivals, a course of lectures and finally a loan and mortgage. Fending the discussion Asa Ainivvcll, who is au excellent busi ness man, but somewhat eccentric, rose and said lhat ho wanted to tell a story. It was an old one, but he asked them lo listen to it for the sake of tho applica tion. " Mark" Twain was once invited to take charge of an agricultural paper during the absence of the editor. A Mibscnber wrote asking for information us lo the best way of raising beets. Mark promptly replied in the paper that his way of raising beets, and he thought it the easiest utd the best, way, was to take hold of the tops and pull. The subscriber was indignant, and was tho editor when ho relumed, lint Mark was right after all. To ra, lift up. Il duos not lin an ttm m,-ik-- of u tliitiL'. or it- development from seed, but only ils cli val am. October. Many of imt have beets. It 1 should ilrito wa on, and sty to oti: Nt want lo raise a load of beets.' ll s now ds lull tip in in v iclilnr. I wouldn't you replv: ' W cil, come and pull them. Now th:it is the ease hi re. Von not only have plenty of beets, bill plenty ot money. If any of you wants a new piano, a new carpet, or anything else fnsjjvoiir own comfort or that of votir family, vou don't If-k, how shall I "ct it? but you put your l ands iu'o jour pockets and pull tint (he cash and pay tor it. There is plenty of money hei e ,i build a new church. .We can do it without giving up a .sinL'le comfort or even luxury. We ( tin do it and not be anv pooler for il. e don't nee I lairs and festivals ami sucii kinds of gen'cel begging in order to r;i io this monev. All we nee I is jttst to do as we do iu other i:is, s pel our hands into mir pockets and pull. "And now," lie c iititiued, "1 will make Miu a proposition. I know that we can get even dollar that is needed for the new chinch lu te lo ti ght, pro vided each of vou will give what he knows thai lie ought lo and can allord to. So if you wul subscribe conscien tiously I will take the amonn! .sub scribed, and pay the rcsl imse'f." The pro osilioti was accepted. Mr. Aitnwcil took his place at the table, and one alter another came forward and pledged the amount he was willing I i gi e. The pledges w ere footed up and the result was loss than 6 S.oi'O. Sonic of tint people thought that Asa was caught in his own trap. Hut no. He arose nnd said: "Friends, you remem ber my proposition. If you subscribe d eon .eientiintsly, and the amount was less than -ln,oo i 1 was to make up that sum. Hut some of ou know very well lhat you have not subscribe I eonseieu t.otisly. I don't want to call out names, but ii' I did even body would siv that not si few of you sh rked your full duty. So for your own sakes 1 will give vou anothcropportitnily. Additional pledges will now be in order." I lie additional pledges came so that, in a few minutes, the lull amount was ra sed. When it was done everybody was delighted. They said one to another: "How much boiler this is than to be running all 'over town wilh subscription papers. and having nail a do en committees to get up all sorts of entertainments that cost mote than they come to." Now, if any congregal ion w:'iits to bn'ld a new hou-e of worship, or to do anything else that ought lo le done, and tint! il requires money to do, lei them try Mark Twain's way of raising things; let them take boll and pull. t Ine long pull, strong pull and pull alto- j gother vv ill generally secure whatever ' is n led. In the m, st of our A nn ri - j can towns and villages there is financial ' ability enough to moot eicr.v demand : of public interest and henevul nee. Lut we have fallen into the habit of , meeting -ueh demands in a round-about I way rather than directly and eonsci- j cntiously. I 1 ought to aid in conclusion (hat I there ale -oine places in which churches j are nee, led where there are not many beets to be pulled. To such places we. ought to send wagon loads from the places where beet- are plenty. Tho rich must help the poor as we do through our Hoard of Church Krectlon. Hut I repeat and emphasize the suggestion that iu most cases the best way to raise I money for a churc h is for the well-to-do people who are interested in it lo put their hands into their pockets and pull.

A Sunday-school teacher has added power through recognizing his place in the Sunday-school of which he is a constituent part. His class is not in it self a Sunday-school; nor is he alone in the work of instructing and influencing that class. Ills fellow-teacher and the Superintendent have a share wilh him iu shaping and impressing the lessons of the school as a whole. Unless a teacher makes Ihi co-operation availa ble, he fails of securing for his scholars all the good lhat they are cut. tied to recive in that Sunday-cool. The opening and closing exercises of the school ilself are as truly a part of tho lesson of the day as arc the teacher's direclest words to his scholars personal ly; and the teacher who fails to show by his bearing and manner that he is a co-worker with the Superintendent and the other teachers iu making those ex ercises potent for good is not so faith ful a teacher as ho might be - as he ought to bo. So, again, the weekly meeting of the teachers for lesson study gives an advantage to the teachers shar.ng in il which every teacher ought to crave for his class, and ought to gain for his class if it is po-sihle for him to do so. Not every teac her can attend the teachers' meeting; but the best teacher in the world could teach better with, than without, the help of a teachers' meeting; and the teacher who has the power ol obtaining that help, and fails to improve it, is not so good a teacher as he might be as he orgot to be. So in the mallei of comlorinily to all the rules oi the school as a whole, the teacher who makes himself a part of the school is more of a teacher than he who would separate himself and his class from the inlluenoes and the in .striicliuus of the school a a whole. In addition lo all that the teacher himself can do for bis class, there ought to be secured for that cla-s all that his fel-lovv-teucher.s and their Superintendent mav do in their co-operating spheres. And just here is where many a tMinday school teacher fails in being a good and as faithful a teacher as he might bc- as he ought to be. -S. .'. Time.

His hands were manacled to a heavy belt which encircled his waist. "Mr. Connelly," he said, as his fin gers worked convulsively, "it's time tor my medicine." The orderly rose and took from his cabinet a small v al containing a dark brown Ihiid. With tremulous lips, his hands still bound, the patient swallowed the draught and lelt the room. "1 remember one case in particular," resumed the orderly. "He was a clergymen in th s cily. and had been drinking for more than three weeks. However, ho was nevt r reallv drunk -always had what the boys call 'a quiet load.'' This is the kind of a case that bothers us. 1 le cause yoiu contained men are nearer than they think for.
