Observation of Sir EJwin Arno'd-Mo hamired's Decree The Dumb Animals- (By Rev. W. J. Hocking, Vicar of All Saints. Tufnell Park, London.) "A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast, but the wicked are cruel." "Be ye therefore merciful." It has been laid at the door of the Christian religion sometimes as a slur by the scoffer, sometimes as an indict ment by the skeptic, sometimes as a matter of deepest regret by Christians themselves, that the animal kingdom outside man finds no recognitions in its creeds, its moral maxims or its ethical dogmas; that animals are sel dom mentioned except as the servants of, or as food for, the lord of creation. Sir Edwin Arnold says: "All Chris tian peoples stand for the most part a sadly long way behind those of the East in their conduct to animals. Good Buddhists never intentionally take away life at all. By a single decree of Mohammed the whole of Islam acts a thousand times more kindly to animals than Christendom." It is narrated of Mohammed that one day a young Mecca n peasant brought to him two young pigeons which the feathered mother had followed all the way from the nest. "See!" said Mo hammed, "she has more courage than the stoutest of my spearsmea! She braves instant death for her young lings! Do you dream Allah created the heart of a dove like this, that you should carelessly spill the love and life forth from it at your fancy? 1 bid ye give back her couplets to that mother bird, and henceforth never shall any true believer presume to slay a bird or a beast for food -without first asking pardon from God and patience for the victim, repeating these words: In the name of God. the Compassionate." To the credit of Mohammedanism be it said never since that day has any de vout Mussulman tasted the flesh of bird or beast over which the hallal has not thus been pronounced. Is there not tenderness enough in, our Christian sentiment to effect a similar thing? Are the followers of the gentle Christ to be less gentle than the Mussulman? I want vou to think of man's relation to the animal world. And first grasp this fact, that man and every other liv ing creature have a common origin. I do not care what theories you hold as to life improvement; I do not care whether vou follow Moses or Darwin in accounting for the phenomena of life upon earth this is a fact which cannot be srainsaid. that man shares with everv animal that lives the primal and the constituent elements of life. Wondrous similarity also exists be tween many of the organs and organic functions in man and those of other animals. Speaking of ourselves we say in the language of the old Hebrew poet, "For I am fearfully and wonder fully made": but the smallest insect that spreads its gossamer wings under the slowing rays of the summer s sun equals, if it does not surpass, us in the tearfulness and wonderfulness of its creation. There is evidence of as much creative skill, as much marvelous de sign, in the bee, the butterfly, the hum mingbird and the eagle, as in what Shakespeare calls "the paragon of ani mals." man. The denizens ot tne misrhtv denths of ocean, as well ns those that skim and float and fly in the vaulted dome of heaven, vie with man n witnessing to the studious care dis played by God in the adaptation of faculty to function and function to en- ironment. As far. too. as provision for their mere animal wants is concern ed, it is as abundant for the brute as for the man. Of the birds of the air Christ said: "Your heavenly father feedeth them," and we read talso, "The eves of all wait uoon thee, and thou givest them their meat in due season. He filleth all things living with plen- teousness." Secondly. I want to emphasize the fact that animals possess, along with man, though not in the same degree, the powers of volition for constructive, preservative and pleasurable ends. Time was when men disputed that mimals had minds; instinct was al lowed them, but reason denied them. That disputation has now been remov al into the limbo of dead follies. Not to ignore the tremendous difference jetween the potentialities and attain- ments of human reason and tnose ot he reason of the brutes, we have come to discern and that so clearly as to eave no room for doubt that animals betray intelligence, and in many cases of a very marked and high degree: that they share with us many of the ner feelings and emotions; that they ave memories: that they continually jlC jff TT V5 v-. -rsZr v2?i v-V..:-.- I J i . w . . SHE MAY BE AUSTRIA'S EMPRESS. Ther.? tai unconfirmed rumor that the recently bereaved Austrian emperor, Francis .Joseph, is to marry the Princess Isabella, of Orleans, daughter of the Oomte le Per:-? and sister of the I Juc de Orleans. The proposed alliance looks to the re-establishment of tht Ilapsburgs. The emperor is GS years of age. form progressive precepts; that they invent new means and methods of gra tifying their faculties for enjoyment; and that, like man, they learn by ex perience. Many animals possess a mar velous amount of sagacity and of thoughtfulness manifested in prevision and forecast; in courage and in self sacrifice; in gratitude and in affection even surpassing those things in man. I might give you a long list of mental phenomena which man and brute share in common, though in varying degrees. But take those of the emotions only: Fear, surprise, affection, pugnacity, cu riosity, jealousy, anger, hatred, mirth fulness, sympathy, pride, resentment, grief, cruelty, benevolence, revenge, shame, regret, deceit and in many cases an extreme sense and love of the beautiful. That some, or all of these, are common to a thousand forms of an imal life nobody would deny. In face of these facts, who dares talk contemptuously of the "dumb an imals," and of the "beasts that perish?" No animal is dumb to God, and as he has a place for every force that has taken to itself sphere or form, it may be that over and above the many mansions which he has prepared for man in the great other world, he has made some provision for the other works of his hands. "It is the pitiless professors of materialism, who do not care how many gentle and helpless four-footed or four-handed beings they torture," who can conceive for the brute nothing beyond an ephemeral ex istence which imposes no obligations on man. STEAMERS OF GREAT STRENGTH. Few vessels (warships excepted) are built of equal strength to the ice breakers in use in the Northern Seas. Here is a short description of two just launched by the Grangemouth Dock yard Company, Grangemouth, for the Furska Steamship Company of Hel singfors, Finland. The stems of these vessels have been specially designed and strengthened for breaking up great thicknesses of ice. The stern, of wie gunboat pattern, overhanging and protecting the rudder, is provided with a cast-steel cutting edge where it enters the water, and the rudder is a solid steel casting of great strength, and weighing several tons. These castings have been manufactured by the Steel Company of Scotland, and are so designed as to enable the vessel to break up thick . fields of ice as read ily going astern as ahead. The pro peller, being subject to severe concus sions with the floating blocks, is of nickel steel. Internally the vessels have been strengthened to resist the heavy shocks met with in ramming the ice, and their" scantlings, particu larly at the fore and after ends, are enormously in excess of those requir ed for an ordinary vessel of this size. In the machinery department are in troduced a number of special ar rangements, such as devices for the prevention of freezing in the intense cold of the regions where these ves sels will .ply, and strengthening of the requisite parts to resist the shocks met with by the propeller. The ves sels will be classed 109 Al at Lloyd's under special survey, and their dimen sions are 180ft. by 2Sft. by 21ft., to the awning deck.
