I was sick for two fe n weeks after that, stranger, and when I tb came to my senses I wasn't the same bi man. I didn't care to live, and if it e! hadn't been for my poor old mother I br should have killed myself. I became th e rough and reckless and did the roughest in kind of work I could find.

It was r just awful that day. I never saw any c thing like it. It was reported that the E Tram Hollow fire was accidental, and that the fire started from some sparks i that had been smoldering in a steum r pile. That's all nonsense, for I started * the ire myself and had to run for life to I keep out of its way. Like a crazy fool r I ran down the valley, with the wind and t the fire following me like a monster ready to avenge itself. There were r some houses down in the valley and they a used to call the place Oil Centre, and I when I reached the first house the fire r had caught up to me and I jumped into a the creek and ran down in safety out of the reach of the fire. i " Pretty soon I came to a house that belonged to a woman, and it was all she had between her and poverty, and I saw 1 her trying to carry out some things, but before she could do anything the fire L swooped down and caught up that house like a whirlwind. That woman turned to me, gave one unearthly, heartrending scream and fainted away. I took care of her until she was able to walk, and I then put her in charge of some of her , friends. Oh, that awful scream! I have heard it many times since, and I heard it to-night while you were here. It has haunted me day and night; it has given me no rest. I sometimes think that the p pauper I killed was a relative of hers, and that her scream comes to me in t punishment for the deed. You know the result of that Tram Hollow fire? Scores of people thrown on the world homeless and penniless; thousands upon thousands of dollars lost; children cry. ; ing for bread about the skirts of their r heartbroken mothers. I have since done a what I could in a feeble way to see that t those homeless people did not suffer for the necessaries of life; but, oh, the re r morse that has gnawed at my heart a since that fatal day! Why, oh, why did I ever touch the accursed whisky that . made me a fiend? Why, oh, why did a the woman I loved drive me to thisP" a He stopped as if stricken dumb, his I eyes glaring wildly from their sockets, r his face a picture of horror and fear. "My God!" he shrieked; "that Sscream again! Did you hear it? No, how could you, for it comes only to me. I feel that I'm going very fast now, and r oh, I hope God has forgiven me. Come Scloser. Here, take the picture and keep 1 it, and-some-day show it-to the woman it represents-and tell her-and --tell her-I-I-loved her- to-the Sthe-last!" e The galight came struggling through the cracks in the rough cabin and fell up on an upturned face, from which had r faded sorrow and care and hate and a fear, and all things earthly, and which a as the angel of death released the suf , fering spirit, reflected from its cold form [ the look of peace and love of the dead a but unforgotten past. Slowly, rever t ently, I closed the door of the rude [ building and left the dead alone with a the changing shadows under the moan t ing pines. Out into the wintry night, 1 down the little valley to the test-well, I j walked as in.a dream, and as I opened I the door of the derrick and stood before the giant form of Big Jack Sanford, that large-hearted man gazed at me in sur j prised silence. t " The man up at the shanty-" I be. gan, and a lump seemed to come into 9 my throat all at once. a "Yes?" said Jack, interrogatively. " He is-is-dead!" and I sat down on the anvil in sheer despair. 1 "Whatf Jim BartonP Torpedo t JimP" I could only nod assent. "Dead! Torpedo Jim dead! Poor SJim!" And a great sob shook theburly .formi of the driller as he groped blindly r for the throttle wheel. SSoftly we entered the little cabin and stood in the presence of the dead. It a seemed so strangely that death should come down and layhis handson the sick man under the health-giving pines; it [ didn't seem like other haunts of death, Slike funerals in churches and grand Shouses, where sorrowing friends crowd around the silver-trimmed casket and take a last look at the tenement of clay.

The second century hadtic I, given the world a revision, and follow- idi Sing this had been revision after revis- . 'd ion, each of which differed somewhat, be r for they. had been translated from dif o ferent tongues. The latest revision, ed s, therefore, he proceeded to say, should an d not startle us, for we were not the wor- th r shipers of any particular text or form, S 3s but of the truth. There might be some- ha re thing startling to some at first, but there gl l, was not to him. The law of associa- fe r, tion, and the sacredness of the associa tions, tended to hold us to the old re A, vision of the Bible, and the fact that our Ja In mothers and fathers had taught us from a- and familiarized us with certain texts ir made its very phraseology dear to us. he gs It would startle some, no doubt, to miss m ay a certain phrase from its pages, but the ut revisers in their wisdom had kept the as le law of association in view, and had pre re served all of the old associations that it It - was possible to do without, sacrificing K' th the truth. They had retained, for in- c er stance, "Our Father which art in et Heaven," and other innocent archa- to is- isms, for the sake of association. While al te the word "which" had given way to )k "who" in common usage, it was well th al enough that the language was left un- us n- changed, for it did no harm so long as m re it did not pervert the truth. ig From this the speaker went on to re- VI )n for to some of the changes made by be pt the revisers, such as the word "quick'l is- In connection with God'a. name, whiph d, n- had'been changed to "living," and the (I ed text "Take no thought of the mor 4. rowi" which had been changed to "'Be ey not anxious for the morrow." These . and similar changes did not destroy i the truth, but their tendency was to- of ward simplifying it. Literally inter- th preted, such words and texts Lad con-th veved a meaning different fromin what - harld been intended, and it had been th Snecessary to explain them to children., d, but with the changes these explana. a tions were done away with, and. for r- this ~eson he welcomed themt, and he il thought the world should welcome cc re them for the sarie esson. ; But there - was another reason; whythey should be •y welcomed, and one equally ~imprtant, T Id Which was tjiat it would effectudlly.o d. away with the habit of,jWiCt.

In the new revision te he there had been an accumulation of. is re these mianuscripts,' numbnering in all l lif abdt 1,7T0, and going back to te r a 'fourth century These manuscripts' e a. had been an unfailing source of infor it it mation in the work, and that there to or were so many of them inaeror of the ut iais iw revision, for ip their multiplicity. a Ia. they were all found to agree in the is statementtof allfihidamental facts. To dr ilustrate, he said h~bhad fifty ~ieees of it wiln which hid h passed to him from ar former generations; He believed they as were geanuine, and, if, confronted by a A detbter who pronounced them spur is onsthe wouald hold to theii genuineness; he but upon' being' induced 'to submit cl k- th'dm to the besrknown, scientific tests we of if he should And one of them to be tr ar i aloust, he Would feel the betteratis- th di f of~i t the cha~awter of the otbertfprty- in hn ntde piees.

If the changes made, however, created a shock it would only be felt by the presenL generation, for our children's children would have a better Bible than we have had. But we should compare the new with the old in our family . prayers, and he believed it would recommend itself to our affection. -Chi. cago 'IWbune.."'"' Notwithstanding the rejection of so large a portion of the work of the American Committee the result appears to have been received more favorably in !this country than in England. The work of the daily press has been chiefly confined to the publication of speei mens from the Revised Testament. Few communications from., Biblical scholars have appeared, and these, of course, the result of brief examnination. On Sunday last the new book was made the theme of pulpit discussion in many churches, but not so generally as was expected. Rev. Dr. Taylor, of the Broadway Tabernacle (Congregational),. spoke in approbation of impoFtant omissions in the text, notably those in Johp : 4, and 1 John 5: 7. and of the substitution of modern for obsolete English words, and added: "The revised edition, how ever, would have been better if' the suggestions of the American Committee had been adopted. The brethren on this side of the water have done more than appears. on the surface. The appendix shows that they more than hold their own with the British Coln. mittee in scholarship, and ultimately . their suggestions may find their way into the text. Whoevrr' neglects to read'the appendix will' neglect some of thei more important things,' critically rconsidered, in the book. There issome preference shown in the Revised edi tioi for literal translation of the Greek idioms to idiomatic expressions. The words in the Lord's Payer, 'Thy will be gone on earth as it is in Heaven,' would have better remaisyed unchang ed. 'as nothing of the sense is lost in the authorized version. To a large extent the'Tvndalic flavor of the English ver sion has been preserved, but the 'Greek has been given preference to the En glish idibm where the lattet would per. fectly represent the meaning," Rev. Dr. Potter, of GraCe Church (Episcopal), said: "Since the King.. r James version was made, new manu scripts have come to light and we have mastered the Greek grammar. We have procured the type of scholarshi most necessary for the work--that scholarship which is at. once reverent and; profound. The work has beep co(m)hleted, happily and successfhtly. Its history has been like that of the 9 King James version. Itrwas hard to contend with eeelesiastletl' opposition and ignorant criticism.' And, I venture to predict that its fate in the future will also be parallel to that oL the lang ,lames version. That was . *vp,au i thorized, but it aned its authority by use !among the Cdple. Oui('on col - munion will be slow to adopt the New Version, but it will find itrway into the closet, and from there the presure will be flt." ' SRqv. . D.. Hitchook., DD.' Presio , dent4 of.
