There have been remarks made eonn
Cernihg.'aH mori being redeemed' from
lu'l! : -but 1 say that tho'Se Who' sin, a
j''nini the Holy' Ghost, cannot he for
j given in this world or in the world to
jcome : they shall die the second death.
Those who commit the unpardonable
sin .are; doomed to Crnoow io dwell
in helU worlds without end. As they

I have intended my remarks lor all,
both rich and poor, bond and free,:
great and -fern all: ' I 'have no enmity
agaihst any man'. I love yon all ; but.
I hate :some of your deeds-. I am y o' r
best friend; and' if person's miss their
mark'V it is their own fault. If I re
prove a "man, and he hates :me, he: is a
fool ; for I love all men, espp.eially
these,my brethren and sisters.
I rejoice in hearibg the testipqny of
my-nged friends. You don't known1 mej
you never knew my , heart. No man
knows my history-. . i cannot tell it; I
'slfall never undertake il-- I don't
blame any one for; not believing my
history. If 1 had not. experienced what
X have, I could not have believed it
myself!... I never; di.d Jiarm any man
since I- was born into the kworld. , My
voice is always for peace,
If cannot lie down .until all my work
is finished. I never think any evil,
'pox do anything to the" harm 'of my fellow-man.
When I am called by" the
(rump pT 'the-arch-angel and weighed
in; the balance, y oil1' will ajltknow me
then. 'I add no-more; God bless you.

Origin' of the Grand Canypn of the Colorado,
Of the vast collection op" Indian
myths and legends laboriously gather
ed by the intrepid, one-armed voyager, I
j Major .Powell, few are more interest
ing than that which describes, in the
mythology of the Utes-the origin of
the Grand Canyon: of, the Colorado,
.a marvel worthy to rank with the. Sev-'
en wonders,, it teljs. how, in the olden,
.time, jhc wifo of (he groat war-chi(?f
( of the Utes diedi and (he chief was in- H
consolable -and otrljed-uponhis god H
Tawots' to take pity 'otrhim and lead W
him (o hisr'wife. And the god looked
down on him and s.aw thatire wa.s un- I

in lu's hand, hp ro.lled it' before him on jfl

opened the Grand Canyon, thousands U
of fcet deep. And through it iho god 9
led the heavy-hearled chief of.the.Utes, '9
and showed him his wife in the happy 9
hunting grounds; and leading him ' 9

One of our prominent 'lawyer s went - 9
home the other day to dinner, and I
found that his little hoy had had his . . j fl
d.clipped ihu accordance with ihe&98$ " v X1M
prevailing-style. Affecting nrot to no-
lice it, he began to speak of a wonder- 9
ful cur'jodty on4 exhibition at the Zoo, 9
in the shape of a livirg creature wilh 9
a form something like that of a human 9
being. Its head was as round as a 9
.pumpkin, its, ears stood, otit like clam 9
shells on a cocoanut, fts'nose protrud- 9
edr like a figure four' from what seemed 9
to :be its face ; it walked upn'ght, and v 9
its head-was covered wilh a growth ot 9
ibrislles.; about ono-sixteenthof an inch 9
in"length, and for want of a better 9
iiiame-the creature had been called the 9
"What. Is It?." .And placing his 9
hand on the boy's head, the father 9
said: r Why, 'here i is,' 'now. Here's 9
the very thing I've been li'dki'ng about."
The boy replied, us he buttered a
piece of biscuit, They've got a blamed
