DEVELOPMENT OF CHRISTIANITY. Bishop Fitzgerald Tells of the Growth of the Church. In Twenty-eight Years an Increase of One Million. Tha Perfection of Warlike Appliances to Be the Mesne of Stopping Carnna-e. The Unification of the Church the Hope of Mankind, At the special solicitation of tbelediea ol tbe Metbodiit Episcopal Church South of tfail city, Bishop 0. P. Fitz gerald delivered the missionary sermon on Sunday eveninglastatTrinity church to a very large audience. His review oi the wore; done during the past year was moat interesting, and in the light of tbe past success he did not, perhaps, take too optimistic a view of tbe future which yet lies far ahead. The bishop selected for his text: He ealiatb to me out of Selr, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of tbe night? The watchman said, The morning cometh, and also the night; if ye will inquire, inquire ye; re turn, come. It. xxi. 11-12. "One eight in 1886," he began by re marking, "this text came vividly to my mind. It was midnight on shipboard, on ths Caribbean sea. Tbe good ship rolled heavily in tbe trough of the ocean. Tbe fall moon shed its radiance upon tbe restless billows, while overhead fleecy, white clouds floated slowly like watching angels. The few stars blazed like dia mond isles in tbe infinite ooean of blue. The sonthern cross glittered brilliantly in the tropical sky; my fellow passen gers were asleep, or tossing wakefully upon their conches. I sat alone upon tbe upper deck and gazed upon the peaceful heavens above and the illumin ated ocean below, watching the hours away in thinking of tbe church and its destiny ; of the world and tbe future This text then and there came into my remembrance. The two dates, 28 year apart, met and mingled in my con scionsness. "When tbe women of our church ii Los Angeles honored me with an invita tion to preach tbeir missionary sermon these same words presented themselves to me and would not be dismissed Though confessedly obscure, I will, as far as I may be able to do so, give the words and explanation and application pertinent to tbis occasion. The watchman here is the prophet o Israel. Tbe inquiry comes from Seir, a heathen land. The answer indicates that the inquiry was put in tbe spirit of indifference or captionsness. God's re sponses to ns are always in exact ac cordance with the spirit of our inquir ies and approaches to Him. II we ap proach Him receptively, He will bear us. If we approach Him in the spirit oi obedience, He will give nt light to guide na snrely iv the path of duty. But the divine oracles ate forever dumb to tbe profane or careless inquirer. They that seek the Lord with their whole heartt find Him. Every minister ol the gospel is a watchman. He watches lor son Is. He must instruct, warn, exhort, comfo.t, persnade. He must give account to God, •nd so most eaoh hearer give account ai to how he bears. Figuratively, uighl means sorrow and adversity; morning means joy and prosperity. This is suf ficient for my purpose in the way of ex plication. "In 1666 tbis natioo was a land of grief and graves. It was night in our old homes. But tbe morning came. Sorrow was soothed by time; industry baa repaired the ravages of war. During these intervening decades our country has made wonderful growth in all the elements of national wealth and power. The statistics would astonish even our selves it in tbis matter 1866 were com pared with 1894. Though the business interests of tho nation are at the present time depressed and unsettled, it is hoped by ns all tbat the darkest part of the night of depression and distress is past, and that tbe morning of a brighter day of prosperity is dawning. "Better still, the religions faith and hope oi our people survived the shouk of war, though there was iv all parts of our country tbe demoralization which is its inevitable concomitant. The growth of tbe leading denominations of Chris tians bas been rapid and steady. Mighty revivals of religion—revivals iv tbe true sense of the word, revivals that clianged the lives of multitudes and wrought moral revolutions in whole communities—have bleseed the nation in tbe north, south, east and west. From 1866 to 1894 the Methodist Epis copal church. South, has made a clear gain of nearly 1,000,000 of communi cants. Other denominations of our fel low-Christianß have, during tbis period, had rapid and continuous growth, though none in a ratio quite as great. We ought to have done better, but we thank God this day as wa look back upon the way by which lie bath led us. "But on all sides we etil hear the in quiry. Watchman, what of the night? There are, I think, few intelligent and devout Christian men and women in our land who do not think that the pres ent statuß of Christendom is untenable. The larger part of tho human race is still groping in the night of heathenism That night has been long, and why? Because God uses human agencies to spread the gospel, and these agencies have too often proved unfaithful. Be cause the truth of the gospel bae been oorrupted. Because the resistance has been stubborn, because the church has been weakened and its resources wasted by needless diversions. Because it has employed cii-iial weapons in its spiritual warfare. Tbe night has been long but tbe morning cometh. What are the grounds of thiß expectation, and what are the eigne of its fullillment? "This very restlessness of which men tion haß been made is a sign of tbe dawning of the morning of a brighter day. The sleep of indifference io ' broken. Millions are inquiring: Watch- j man, what of the night? This awaken- lag is a beam of light that heralds the dawn. A great coiupany of elect souls I are watching, waiting, praying for tho | fulfillment of the promise. Another ground of hope for the speedy coming of tbe latter day tflory is found in the correlated factß that "while the church as a whole is growing stronger the world is practically becoming smaller. The ends of the earth are brought to gether by etetim aud electricity. If the mikado of Japan or the emperor of China were to accept Christianity today every reader of your enterprising !,os Angeles daiiv newspapers would know it before noonday tomorrow. Christian thought is coming into direct contact and collision with heathen ideas and institutions —and tbis is nil it sbles. Put is into the battle and it will cou quer, as it has hitherto done always everywhere. Tbe ir.orninu cometh. Paradoxical »b it may eound to some persons, the veiy destrnctivenets ol modern warfare must soon pnt an end to tbe barbarism of war. A bloody handed Christianity could never bring the heathen world to Christ. With the advance of intelligence among the masses and tbe coming of a truer oivili sation, men will not content to stand before gatliog goos to be mowed down by platoons nor to be blown to pieces by dynamite to feed the vanity or grati fy tbe greed of tyrants or to repair the blunders of idiocy in the place of states* mansbip. Christian nations will not much longer make snch demands upon tbeir citizens. A new era in the mode of settling international differences waa begun with tbe Geneva arbitration. Tbe time it hastening when tbe nations will learn war no more. God hatb so prom ised in His word, and His goodness, wisdom and power guarantee the ful fillment of tbat promise. Thus tbe wrath of men shall praise the Lord, and the remainder of wrath He oan and will restrain. The morning cometh. Another ground of hope for tbe speedy approach ot the better day ie found in tbe [act that the Christian women in all lands are awakening and working aa never before since the first age of the Mew Testament church. They are panying, working, giving—giving tbeir toil, giving their money, giving them* selves. "Perhaps tbe best of all the signs of our timos ia the evident yearning of the heart of, Christendom for Christian unity. It ie coming, for God hath said it. Jesus prayed tbat all his followers might be o. j, even as He and His Father are One. Howdeep, how tender that prayer ! He cannot pray in vain. That nnity must come. A Christianity divided is a Christianity ditcredited. A united Christianity will be invincible. There are some partition walls between believers still standing, but in many places thsy are climbing over them in a gracious way. A few barbed wire ecole siastical fences also still remain, but they mutt go. 1 never did like barbed wire fences of any sort. Tbey are likely to hurt the flock inside as well as those on tbe outside. I want to see these separating walls removed, not be oause I do not love fellow-believers of itber denominations, but because I do love them and wish togetoloter to them. We are getting closer to theui. During my recent official tour through Alon tana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and California, I witnessed everywhere un mistakable evidences of the growth of Christian fraternity. Fraternity is growing. The aspiration for the practi cal unification of the Church of Christ throbs in the heart of Christendom, and tbat unification will be evolved in due time, according to God's gracious law that tbe inner life of an organism moulds its outer forma. Tbis uni fication will not come by coer cion. The day for that is past. Soul-freedom has been bought by mar tyr blood and will never be surren dered, nor will the unification of tbe churoh come by tbe surrender of the essential principles of Christianity. But it will come by the practical adoption of the goiden motto: Unity in essentials, liberty io non-essentials, charity in all things. We will interfere with no man's religion and no man shall enter fern with oars. In some of the districts recently vis ited by me I found all the fenoes re moved by which ranches, orchards, vineyards and gardens had been sepa rated. These districts were under the operation of a stock law that protected and benefited all alike. So the day is ayproaching when we shall have at the same time all tbe advantages of Christ ian individoality combined with tbe practical unification of tbe whole body of believers. The consensus of Christian opinion will be tbe stock law of tbe church universal, excluding the bigotry tbat is worse than the bulls of Basban, the ignorance tbat is the mother of malignity, tbe envy that is fiercer than tigers; and then the evil spirits that possess swinish souls will be driven out and drowned in the deep sea of oblivion. Let us not here in California fight over tbe battles of Europe of a darker time, nor tbe battles of Bull Run and Appo mattox. "Then will Christianity fill the earth with its fruits —Methodist grapes. Pres byterian pears, Congregational cherries, Episcopalian apricots, Lutheran lem ons, Christian currants, Quaker quinces, Baptist watermelons—and all the rest." BEGINS AT THE FEET. Tho Proem of Doing tn Sloop Ex plalnod. "Order is heaven's first law," and, ac cording to the New York World, the ole truth is manifested even in the process of going to sleep. When a man dropi off to sleep, his body does notdosoali lat once, co to speak, Some senses j become dormant before others and 1 always in the same order. As be becomes drowsy the eyes close, and ; the sense of seeing is at reet. It ii I quickly followed by the disappearance lof tbe sense of taste. lie nezl loses the sense of smell, and then, after a short time, the tympanum becomes . insensible to pound, or rather the nerves 1 which run to the brain from it fail to arouse any sense of bearing. Tbe last sense to leave is that of touch, and in | some super-sensitive people it is hardly ever dormant. Even in their case, however, there is no discriminating power or sense of what touched them. ! This sense is also the iirst to returu upon awakening. Then hearing fol lows suit, after which taste, and then the eye becomea able to flash im pressions back to the brain. Tbe sense of emell, oddly enough, though it is by no means the first to go, is the last to come back. The same gradual loss of power is observed in the muscles and sinews, aa well as in the senses. Slum ber begins nt the feet and slowly spreads up the limbs and trunk, nntil it reaches the brain, when unconsciousness is complete and the whole body ia a rest. This io why sleep is impossible when the feet are cold, Thomas Q. Seabrooke has jußt assigned The Isie of Champagne for a London production which will take place short ly. Fred Lonnrn, the well known London comedian, who appeared in America with the London Gaiety com pan; in Faust Up To Date, will play in England the part of Pommery Sec, which Mr. Seabrooke has originated. William Fursi's brilliant score and Byrne and Harrison's clever libretto should be well received abroad. Charles Frobmau's general manager, A. 1 f Hayman, has cent papers to Wash ington applying for a patent on an ad vance agent's clock. It is a peculiar time-piece and is worn over the shoul ders like held glasses. It has to be wound up each day in the year by a different key. There are 305 keys and these keys are sent to dramatic editors thio'.ighout the country, When the clock stops, the agent's salary ceases. Howard Vaul, worldling and feuillet onist, draws a parallel between the act ing of Nat 0. lioodwin and Arthur Hob etts, the celebrated London comedian. LOS AXHELES "TTERAITH ' SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 9, 18M. GALLAUDET DEAF MUTE SOCIETY. Its Origin Explained By One of the Members. Grand Work Accomplished By the Founder of It. Deaf tfntee Were Pat to Death tn Childhood By the Ancients. Considered to Re Hope less Idiot*. Until modern timet the education of deaf motes wm generally anppoied to be impossible. Tbey were forsaken wholly and exiled from the community of rational beings. Many parents con sidered themselves disgraoed by having a deaf and dumb child, and stndionsly conoealsd tbe fact from the world. They were called monsters by the ancients and put to death when 3 years old, or as soon as their deafness waa satisfactorily as certained, and tbey were declared to be incapable of civil acts by the code of Justinian. Tbey were ignorant of sci ence, geography, history and morality, and above all, ignorant of religion. The poet Lucretius expressed the following as his opinion: To instruct ttedeaf no art can reach; No care improve them and no wisdom teach. In tbe fonrth century St. Augustine, influenced by the dictum of Aristotle the great philosopher, expressed his un favorable opinion regarding tbeir abil ity to obtain any religions knowledge. He declared tbat it was impossible to instruct the deal and dumb, and in proof of it he quoted Romans x :17: "Faith cometh by bearing and bearing by the word of God." He was mis taken in his idea ol tbis verse, whicb was not intended lor tbe deal mutes. Pliny mentions Quintus Pedius, a deaf mute, related to the Emperor Augustus, as a successful painter at Rome. But the bright dawn of education and instruction bas come to these unfort unate deaf mutes. Deaf mutes are now acknowledged to possess intelleotnal minds. Tbe first school for the deaf and dumb was founded in England iv 1760; in Franoe, 1763, and in Germany, 1778. Rev. Thomas Hopkins Gallandet, a noted philanthropist, was born in Phila delphia, Pa., on tbe 10th ol December, 1787, and died in Hartford, Ct., Septem ber 9,1861. Gallaudet was well known over tbe world at tbe founder ol the first institution lor the deaf and dumb at Hartford, Ct., in tbe western world, established in 1817. Gallandet wai li censed to preach 1811, but he became interested so soon in the instrnction ot the deal mntet. He waa sent to Europe to study the system oi deaf mute in struction. He visited London, Edin burgh and Paris in 1815, and returned lh 1816 with Lament Clerc, a deaf mute teacher from Paris, to touch tbe deaf and dumb at Hartford. CUro wm one of the ableet pupils end assistants of Sicard, tbe sucoesaor of Abbe de l'Eppe, wbo first lounded schools for tbe desf end dumb in Paris and invented tbe sign languages. Tbe Hartford school was ocened with a class ol seven pupils and two teachers—Gal landet and Clero. Many institutions have sprung np In the United States from that institution and mutes have become useful and eminent in various walks of life. Gallandet married one of his own pnpils. Hie name is to the mntes in the United States what tbe name of George Washington ia to all Americans. The mntes often celebrate his birthday and memory. The Gallaudet society of Los Angeles will celebrate the anni versary of his birthday on the 10th of December. As a Christian philanthrop ist, the name of Gallaudet is eeboed in tbe ears of every mnte in tbe United States, His two sons are living now. Tbey are great in one sense. Tho fame of tbeir labors for the deaf mntes prevails all over the world. The oldest son. named Rev. Thomas Gallandet, jr., D. U , was a professor in the deaf mute school in New York. He married a mnte lady, like his father. He loanded the St. Ann charch for deaf mutes, of which he was a rector for over 40 years, and also general manager of the church mission for deaf mutes. Last year be resigned from tbe rector ship, but he is still a missionary for deaf mutes. Edward M. Gallandet, Ph. D, L L. D., tbe younger son, began to teach in 185(5 at the Hartford school, and then went to Washington, D. C, with bis deaf mute mother, at tbe invitation of Amos Kendall. He organized the Co lumbia institution for the deaf and dumb, and in 1884 congress established the Gallaudet college through tbe aid of President Gallaudet, to give deaf mute young men from all states a higher or advanced education. He originated and is president of this college, and also a professor of moral and political science. The name of tbe national deaf mute col lege was changed to Gallandet deaf mute college. It belongs to tbe United States government, and congress sup* ports it. President Gallandet bas done much to promote the collegiate education of deaf mutes. They became teachers, chem ists, architects and editors. President Gallaudet visited England in 1880, at the request of the British government, and intormed tbe royal commission re garding the system of deaf route instruc ted in the United States. Tbe Gallau det college ia the only college at Wash ington, D. O.i in the world to which the mutes can point with pride. The manual alphabet and sign lan guage in tbe United States are different from that of England. The mutes use the finger alphabet in tbe United States, while the double-handed alphabet in ueed in England. There are various sign languages iv Eutope. Germany and other countries in Europe do not use sign language. Lip reading or articulator is taught at the schools in Germany. The sign language is universal in the German province i and oral instruction is for the use of ouly semi-mute and semi-deaf. The debate between oral instruction and sign language has been agitated in tbe United States. Prof. Graham Bel! is tbe champion of tbe oral system. The readers of your paper might have read about the BellTelephono company. It is Prof. Graham Bell who invented the telephone. He has a semi-mute wife. President Gallaudet is the cham pion of the combined system of the sign language and articulation. Hi a Gallaudet society of Los Angeles will try to get Rev. Thomas Gallaudet or President Gallaudet to come here next summer, and no doubt tbe citizens will fake a deep interest in his lectures. James O. Lane. Member of the Gallaudet society.

MANUFACTURING CONFECTIONERS. j|| UP IN A BALLOON. Prof. Lows'* Shoal to G*n*r*l Wits John Fortor. the following interesting reminiscence ol war times, is taken from the Youths' Companion: During the siege ol Yorktown by the union army, use was made ol a balloon for purposes of reconnaissance. With a stout rope attacbed, it was sent np high enough to be beyond rifle-shot, and after the necessary observations bad been taken, it was drawn down again. On one such occasion tbe balloon broke loose and shot up into tbe air, its only occupant being Gen. Filz John Porter. Doctor Ward, historian ol tbe One Hun dred and Sixth Pennsylvania regiment, thus desoribes the occurrence: General Porter had ascended several times alone, and tbia morning with field-glass in hand, he sprang into tbe car and commanded the men to let go tbe cables. Tbe balloon was only par tially inflated, yet noiselessly it rose into the sky, when suddenly a report like an explpsion was heard, and it was found tbat the only rope bad parted and the balloon was adrilt. Tbe whole army seemed to comprehend at once what had happened and all eyes were turned npward. Tbe general appeared on the edge ol the car and shoutdd something tbat conld not be heard below ; bnt Professor Lowe, knowing tbat sound would as cend better, shouted, "Climb—to—tbe —netting —and—reach — tbe — valve — rope!" But tbe balloon kept on its upward flight. Presently the general was seen climb ing up tbe netting and making Irantio efforts to secure tbe rope; but be de scended and motioned over the side of the basket, as it telling ns oi his failure. Then be was seen making nse of bis glass, reconnoitering tbe enemy's works, Tbe wind carried him first toward Fortress Monroe, aad all felt relieved; but soon the course changed, and back the balloon came over our heads and into the Confederate lines; yet not* withstanding his perilous position, Gen eral Porter could be seen using bis glass and gaining all the information possible, far above the range ol sharpshooters and cannon. But where would be land? Again he was climbing np the netting; and this time be got tbe rope, opened tbe valve, and the balloon be gan to descend. His staff and orderlies galloped in tbe direction he bad gone, so as to be ready to render what assist ance should be necessary if he should land where they could reach bim. As tbe balloon neared the ground, it came back within our lines, and finally landed in the road near the camp of the Seventy-second Pennsylvania, striking one of their small tents with such force as to hurl the general out. He arose unhurt, and was welcomed gladly and noisily by bis officers and men. The writer, with othors, assisted in discharging the gas from the balloon, which was taken charge of by Prol. Lowe, who soon arrived on horseback. A NEW COUNTERFEIT. A Two-Dollar Bill That I* a Dangeroa* Imitation. William P.

It is about one-eighth of an inch larger than tbe genuine; tbe number ing, seal and latbe work are well exe cute!, i In the portrait oi Windom tbe eyes appear to be larger than in the genuine and have a bulged look; the outline of the right side of face is not clearly de nned, the shade lines running into the face between tbe eye and ohm.
